CHRISVANORMER Staff writerWinn Webb wants to bring back his experience and good manners to the county commission. Ive been on the short end of 4-1 votes and it never became personal, said the former District 5 commissioner, who gave up his seat in 2012 to run an unsuccessful campaign for sheriff. Its almost like schoolyard behavior. The public expects more from their elected officials. Discord on the board is keeping the county from moving ahead, said Webb, adding that that has been a source of public frustration. Since leaving the commission, Ive had a lot of people say, We wish you hadnt left the board, Webb said. A lot of people have called me and said I should do CHRISVANORMER Staff writerLifelong county resident Scott Carnahan entered the District4 county commission race because of his dismay with the countys direction. When asked about a rumor that Commissioner Scott Adams pushed him to run, Carnahan responded: That would be an untrue statement. Ive never been a follower. Ive been a leader in my life. Ill vote the way I feel the taxpayers need me to vote. The 44-year-old candidate operated Carnahans Supply with more than 40 employees before selling the company. Carnahan said he now sub-contracts with Duke Energy and Port Manatee.

Scott Carhanan Winn Webb US doctor with Ebola in Atlanta Associated PressATLANTA The first Ebola victim to be brought to the United States from Africa was safely escorted into a specialized isolation unit Saturday at one of the nations best hospitals, where doctors said they are confident the deadly virus wont escape. Fear that the outbreak killing more than 700 people in Africa could spread in the U.S. has generated considerable anxiety among some Americans. But infectious disease experts said the public faces zero risk as Emory University Hospital treats a critically ill missionary doctor and a charity worker who were infected in Liberia. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has received nasty emails and at least 100 calls from people saying How dare you bring Ebola into the country!? CDC Director Tom Frieden told The Associated Press Saturday. I hope that our understandable fear of the unfamiliar does not trump our compassion when ill Americans return to the U.S. for care, Frieden said. Carnahan: Stop wasteful spending See CARNAHAN/ Page A7 Webb: Stop the discord, move forward See WEBB/ Page A7 Super sniffers K-9s prove a boon for law enforcementA.B. SIDIBE Staff writerAdogs remarkable sense of smell is legendary. And, it is that acute ability to sniff out anything from suspects fleeing police to illegal drugs squirreled away in hidden compartments that has made the four-legged mansbest-friend invaluable to law enforcement. A 2005 Supreme Court decision cleared the way for police to use dogs during traffic stops for walks around vehicles without requiring the consent of the motorists. Here in Citrus County, authorities say it is a vital tool in their drug interdiction efforts and to lasso fleetfooted suspects. They definitely have a dual purpose. They can quickly track and catch suspects running from deputies, and find narcotics, said Sgt. Ryan Glaze of the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. On a recent afternoon in Crystal River, K-9 Deputy Chris Hryc and his partner Zeus stopped a vehicle, which pulled into a retail parking lot. Hryc made a discretionary decision to deploy the German shepherd by grabbing a red KONG toy, which is the reward for the exuberant animal. Zeus quickly made a beeline for the SUVs back area and became so excited the dog wanted to climb through its open window. That told me something was in there that may be illegal. He really wanted to get in that vehicle, Hryc said after the stop. Zeus was returned to the squad car and Hryc asked to look into a stuffed plastic bag sitting in the rear of the SUV. The hit that got Zeus so excited was residue from a small white baggie of some kind of narcotic which was buried in a 32-gallon plastic bag full of female clothing. The driver of the MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleCitrus County Sheriffs K-9 Deputy Chris Hryc observes Zeus, a patrol/narcotics dog, on a recent afternoon in Crystal River. The keen sense of smell the animal possesses gives law enforcement a potent weapon in the fight against illegal narcotics. For more photos, click on this story at www.chronicle online.com.

50 years of exploring Florida means many findsMARIANRIZZO Ocala Star-BannerOCALA A fishing trip to Orange Springs in 1960 introduced Alvin Hendrix to a hobby that would take him on underwater treasure hunts for the next 40 years. Hendrix and a friend were bringing their fishing boat to a pier on the Ocklawaha River when they encountered two men docking a boat. They were carrying scuba tanks and a piece of a mastodon tooth that caught Hendrixs attention. I was fascinated, he said. I had grown up on that river, and I didnt know that kind of thing was there. Before Hendrix could make a bid for the tooth, a bikini-clad woman came out of a nearby fish camp and asked if she could have it. The guy said yes and the lady took the tooth and left. That just shattered me, he said. The incident motivated him to buy a wet suit and second-hand scuba gear, and sign up for lessons at a Crystal River diving school. After training, Hendrix went back to the place where he had seen his first mastodon tooth. What followed were a series of adventures at the bottom of a half-dozen North Central Florida rivers, where he collected thousands of historic and prehistoric artifacts. Among Hendrixs finds were spear tips, mammoth teeth, mastodon jawbones, a variety of tools once used by Native Americans and the bones of many animals. Earlier this week, a smiling Hendrix showed off some of the treasures he has collected at the Silver River Museum, where his donations number more than 16,000 items, many displayed in glass-fronted cabinets or placed on shelves in the classrooms where children come on field trips to learn about Floridas history. To Hendrix, 81, the best use of such treasures is sharing them with youngsters. Its a thrill, he said. I used to make speeches to the childrens classes. Its satisfying when the children take an interest in something they never heard of before. Scott Mitchell, museum director, touted Hendrixs donation of all the items as one of the more important private artifact and fossil collections in Florida. Alvin explored the rivers of North Florida with scuba equipment during the s and s, long before most people knew that the bottoms of these rivers were full of treasures, such as prehistoric stone tools and ice age fossils, Mitchell noted. He also collected just about everything, including broken items, which gives us a very complete picture of the history of these areas in Florida. Many of his objects are on display, and all of them are available to researchers and people interested in the prehistory of North Central Florida, Mitchell added. Hendrixs collection recently caught the eye of researchers who came to Ocala to study mammoth kill sites on the Silver River. Morgan F. Smith, a candidate with the Center for the Study of Early Americans at Texas A&M University, said Hendrix directed the group to sites where he found artifacts. They also toured the museum. Alvins collection is a really phenomenal representation of the cultural diagnosis of the Paleo-Indian in Florida, Smith said. Its really important in archaeology to be able to work with people who have collections like Alvins. When you get a collection that large, you can find out all kinds of things. The thing about Alvin is, hes so open. Hes been very forthcoming about where he found everything, which is the way scientists and collectors should communicate. From the time he started collecting, Hendrix spent long hours numbering and categorizing each item, noting when and where they were found and what they likely were used for. He first stored the treasures in orange crates and shoved them underneath his house. Hendrix said he received encouragement from many professionals, among them Barbara Purdy, retired professor of anthropology at the University of Florida and former curator in archaeology at the Florida Museum of Natural History. In a phone interview, Purdy said most amateurs fail to keep the detailed records Hendrix has. Alvins collection was so welldocumented, I really learned a lot by studying it, Purdy said. Because of my interest in prehistory, I was interested in his stone tool collection. I think what made Alvin make his final decision to give most of his collection to the Silver River Museum (is that) he was living in Marion County, and they were willing to take it and catalog it. Its where it should be. In recent years, the cataloging fell to museum volunteer Monty Pharmer and his wife, Martha. Pharmer, 81, a retired Air Force pilot, puts in 20 to 30hours every month at the museum. About 75 percent of his time is dedicated to Hendrixs collection. They asked me if Id be interested, Pharmer said. I jumped at the opportunity. While we were doing that large collection we did the computer work at home. My wife helped me immensely. We sorted the collection and put the information in the computer, so its easily available to researchers. They are not only important to the Silver River Museum, its an important bunch of Florida artifacts that date back to historical times and help to understand early Florida. Guy Marwick, executive director of the Felburn Foundation, founded the Silver River Museum in 1991 and served as its director until 2004. Marwick also noted the importance of Hendrixs detailed numbering system. It tells a better story about what may have happened, who may have lived there, and what time periods are represented in that area, Marwick said. Its a tremendous collection. I mean, what kid doesnt want to find a mastodons tooth or a mammoths tooth? Alvin never lost that passion. Born in 1933 in a home in McIntosh, Hendrix spent part of his boyhood scavenging for relics among the groves in Orange Springs. After graduating from Reddick High School in 1951, he put in several years at UF, but his college education was interrupted when he was drafted into the U.S. Army during the Korean War. Afterward, Hendrix returned to UF and earned a bachelors degree from the College of Pharmacy. In 1962, he returned to his hometown and opened a pharmacy. Hendrix lost his wife, Juliette, to cancer 15years ago, and he retired 10years ago. Looking back on what he considers the greatest hobby a guy can have, he talked about some of his most memorable adventures. Though Hendrix has given away most of his artifacts, he has kept a few treasures that sit in a pile on his grandfathers roll-top desk. Laws now restrict people from taking such things from Floridas rivers, but Hendrix believes some leeway should be given to professionals.A2SUNDAY, AUGUST3, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESTATE 000IXY0 Highway 19, Crystal River lindasmathews@yahoo.com 352-795-9666Legal Document PreparationFLORIDA NON-LAWYER SERVICEIn the Crystal River Mall Present this ad for10% OFF Divorce Deeds Wills/Trust Probate Living Will Power of Attorney Crystal River Mall (Next to K-Mart) 352-795-1484 MIRACLE EAR HEARING AIDS TRADE-IN VALUE$2,000 OFFUP TO LARRY SWAIN Sales Associatestuccomaster1961@hotmail.com352-258-0633FRANCES SWAIN Sales Associatefswain66realtor@outlook.com352-302-2300Located inside CRYSTAL RIVER MALLWe dont treat you like a client, we treat you like a friend. 352-794-6072for Promotions & Updates $2.00 OFF ANY GAMEMust present coupon.

OcalaJudge denies inmates castration requestA Florida judge has denied an imprisoned sex offenders request that he be castrated at the expense of the state. The Ocala Star-Banner reported that the man is serving 10-year sentence after pleading no contest to second-degree felony sexual battery. In a hand-written motion, the 35-year-old inmate asked a circuit court judge to modify his sentence to include castration. The motion did explain why the inmate wanted to be castrated. The court denied the motion saying it did have jurisdiction in the case. From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3SUNDAY, AUGUST 3, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Possum fest losing appeal for candidates Associated PressWAUSAU Republican Congressman Steve Southerland knows how to handle a possum. With a shout of Come on, big guy, lets get going, Southerland grabbed a marsupial by the tail Saturday and held it high over his head to the delight of hundreds gathered for the annual Possum Festival in this tiny Panhandle town. A few minutes earlier, his Democratic opponent, Gwen Graham, bid $800 for the opportunity to do the same. She was joined by her father, former governor and ex-Sen. Bob Graham. But missing were Republican Gov. Rick Scott and his Democratic challenger, former Gov. Charlie Crist. And Attorney General Pam Bondi also chose not to go. In fact, the only statewide candidate who attended the event was Democrat George Sheldon, who hopes to unseat Bondi. I dont understand it, said Bob Graham. They made a mistake. They should have come to Wausau. What is usually a mustattend event for statewide candidates was notably lacking of them this year, perhaps because candidates who now raise tens of millions of dollars focus more on television ads than making personal contact. But not attending is a missed opportunity, said Susan MacManus, a University of South Florida political science professor who drove more than 350 miles for the festival. A lot of media is here, free attention, good photos to show people you have connection with the grassroots and rural vote which is always a higher turnout than urban, MacManus said. At a time when people are already overly saturated with TV ads, why not show youre connected with every day people, because thats what people in Florida are really searching for right now. The festival is a celebration of opossums with a parade, a possum king and queen who are chosen for their lack of beauty in a redneck sort of way, and an auction, where possums captured locally are taken from a cage and politicians bid for the privilege of getting on stage and dangling them by their tails. Skilled politicians know the trick of shaking the mammals so they dont rise up and bite them. Oh, and the less fortunate possums end up in a slow cooker and are served with collard greens. Southerland and Graham both said the festival, which is in the district theyre fighting for, was not to be missed. I want to meet everybody in this district that I can meet, said Gwen Graham, standing in the 91-degree sunshine. The retail part of this is the best part. Seeing people, hugging people. You can see how sweaty I get, because I just love it. You feel the connection. Its probably something she learned from her dad. When asked how many festivals hes attended, the former senator said, ,181. Sheldon, who was deputy attorney general under Bob Butterworth, said he has attended the festival several times over the years. Butterworth came all the time, said Sheldon, who remembers seeing former Gov. Jeb Bush here. Regrettably, campaigns are relegated to 30-second spots as opposed to this direct retail politics. Its where you stay in touch with the real world. Pine Street Jam PATFAHERTY Staff writerAs captain of a nuclear submarine during the Cold War, James S. Baumstark relied on persistence, an ability to stay the course and the ability to apply his knowledge to challenging situations. Now, the Crystal River resident is again in the running for a seat on the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC). On Thursday, he emerged as one of the 16 applicants selected for an interview by the Florida Public Service Commission Nominating Council, which had narrowed the list from 32. The council will interview the candidates and send a short list to Gov. Rick Scott to fill two upcoming vacancies on the full-time, five-member commission. Those seats are held by Eduardo Balbis, who is not seeking another term, and Julie Imanuel Brown, who was also selected for an interview. The PSC is responsible for regulating the rates and service quality for five investor-owned electric companies, including Duke Energy, seven investor-owned natural gas utilities, and 148 investor-owned water and/or wastewater utilities. It also has competitive market oversight for more than 400 telecommunications companies and limited jurisdiction over municipal electric and gas utilities and rural electric cooperatives. Commissioners serve four-year terms, and the current annual salary is $131,036. Baumstark has been through the process before and has made the short list twice. I think I have the capabilities to add something on the PSC with a nuclear background and experience in the energy industry, expertise in engineering and energy, he said. He believes these traits are currently absent from the commission, which tends to attract politicians and lawyers. And he believes the PSC has to work for both the consumers and the utility companies. Its my turn to do something for the state and people of Florida, he said. Baumstark is currently an independent consultant to the power industry and chairman of the International Utility Working Group, a consortium of nine utilities from major urban areas of the world, working on new methods of power transmission and distribution. He is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and a retired naval officer with 28 years experience in nuclear submarines. Baumstark has spent 22 years in the utility industry. He retired from Consolidated Edison of New York as vice president of central engineering. Before that he was director of engineering at the Crystal River-area nuclear plant.

The couple married Saturday before family and friends gathered at the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port on Cape Cod. The 60-year-old Robert Kennedy is an environmental lawyer and activist who lives in New York. He is son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and nephew of President John F. Kennedy and the late Sen.

Gov. Mark Dayton issued that proclamation as the ex-Beatle prepares to perform at Target Field in Minneapolis. Dayton recognized McCartney for his musical career spanning nearly six decades. The proclamation also celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first and only Beatles concert in Minnesota. McCartney performed with the Beatles at the old Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington in 1965. His most recent Twin Cities appearance was in 2005 at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. McCartney brings his Out There tour to Target Field Saturday night for a sold-out show. With that concert, he will have performed in every Minnesota Twins baseball stadium.Keith Urban Horrified by alleged rape at showMANSFIELD, Mass. Keith Urban said hes horrified by reports of a possible sexual assault at his concert last weekend south of Boston. Eighteen-year-old Sean Murphy of Boston has pleaded not guilty to a rape charge filed after concertgoers told police they saw a possible assault on the lawn at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield. Bystanders captured the scene on cellphone cameras. Murphy said the incident was consensual. The alleged victim told a bystander who intervened that she hadnt consented. Urban made the statement in a Thursday Facebook posting, adding: our hearts and prayers go out to all those affected. This type of behavior stands in stark contrast to the spirit of our shows. Several dozen people were treated for alcohol-related illnesses at the July 26 concert.Larry King and Piers Morgan trade jabsNEW YORK Clearly, former CNN prime-time stars Larry King and Piers Morgan arent big fans of each other. After King derided Morgans interview skills and called him pompous, Morgan responded on Twitter on Friday that King was a graceless, petty little man. Morgans 9 p.m. CNN show was canceled this year. He had replaced King in that time slot in 2011. King, in an interview with WGRF in Buffalo, said he had trouble watching his successor because the interviews were all about him. Morgan, in turn, criticized Kings ratings, posting a clip where King famously misidentified addressed Ringo Starr as George, and writing, Get over it, you daft old goat.

Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol, who will arrive in several days, will be treated in Emorys isolation unit for infectious diseases, created 12 years ago handle doctors who get sick at the CDC, just up the hill. It is one of about four in the country, equipped with everything necessary to test and treat people exposed to very dangerous viruses. In 2005, it handled patients with SARS, which unlike Ebola can spread like the flu when an infected person coughs or sneezes. In fact, the nature of Ebola which is spread by close contact with bodily fluids and blood means that any modern hospital using standard, rigorous, infection-control measures should be able to handle it. Still, Emory wont be taking any chances. Nothing comes out of this unit until it is non-infectious, said Dr. Bruce Ribner, who will be treating the patients. The bottom line is: We have an inordinate amount of safety associated with the care of this patient. And we do not believe that any health care worker, any other patient or any visitor to our facility is in any way at risk of acquiring this infection. Brantly was flown from Africa to Dobbins Air Reserve base outside Atlanta in a small plane equipped to contain infectious diseases, and a small police escort followed his ambulance to the hospital. He climbed out dressed head to toe in white protective clothing, and another person in an identical hazardous materials suit held both of his gloved hands as they walked gingerly inside. It was a relief to welcome Kent home today. I spoke with him, and he is glad to be back in the U.S., said his wife, Amber Brantly, who left Africa with their two young children for a wedding in the U.S. days before the doctor fell ill. I am thankful to God for his safe transport and for giving him the strength to walk into the hospital, her statement said. Inside the unit, patients are sealed off from anyone who doesnt wear protective gear. Negative air pressure means air flows in, but cant escape until filters scrub any germs from patients. All laboratory testing is conducted within the unit, and workers are highly trained in infection control. Glass walls enable staff outside to safely observe patients, and theres a vestibule where workers suit up before entering. Any gear is safely disposed of or decontaminated. Family members will be kept outside for now. The unit has a plate glass window and communication system, so theyll be as close as 1 to 2 inches from each other, Ribner said. Dr. Jay Varkey, an infectious disease specialist who will be treating Brantly and Writebol, gave no word Saturday about their condition. Both were described as critically ill after treating Ebola patients at a missionary hospital in Liberia, one of three West African countries hit by the largest outbreak of the virus in history. There is no proven cure for the virus. It kills an estimated 60percent to 80percent of the people it infects, but American doctors in Africa say the mortality rate would be much lower in a functioning health care system. The virus causes hemorrhagic fever, headaches and weakness that can escalate to vomiting, diarrhea and kidney and liver problems. Some patients bleed internally and externally. There are experimental treatments, but Brantly had only enough for one person, and insisted that his colleague receive it. His best hope in Africa was a transfusion of blood including antibodies from one of his patients, a 14year-old boy who survived thanks to the doctor. There was also only room on the plane for one patient at a time. Writebol will follow in several days. Dr. Philip Brachman, an Emory public health specialist who led the CDCs disease detectives program for many years, said Friday that since there is no cure, medical workers will try any modern therapy that can be done, such as better monitoring of fluids, electrolytes and vital signs.NATION/WORLDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST3, 2014 A5 000IVNN Love, Mom, Dad, Deb, Billy, Brittany, Belle & Sharley Happy Birthday Bill Barker!

Associated PressLOS ANGELES Omar Akersim prays regularly and observes the dawn-to-dusk Ramadan fast. He is also openly gay. Akersim, 26, is part of a small but growing number of American Muslims challenging the longstanding interpretations of Islam that defined their parents world. They believe that one can be gay and Muslim; that the sexes can pray shoulderto-shoulder; that females can preach and that Muslim women can marry outside the faith and they point to Quran passages to back them up. The shift comes as young American Muslims work to reshape the faith they grew up with so it fits better with their complex, dual identity, with one foot in the world of their parents immigrant beliefs and one foot in the ever-shifting cultural landscape of America. The result has been a growing internal dialogue about what it means to be Muslim, as well as a scholarly effort to re-examine the Quran for new interpretations that challenge rules that had seemed set in stone. Islam in America is being forced to kind of change and to reevaluate its positions on things like homosexuality because of how were moving forward culturally as a nation. Its striving to make itself seen and known in the cultural fabric and to do that, it does have to evolve, said Akersim, who leads a Los Angelesbased support group for gay Muslims. Ten or 15 years ago, this would have been impossible. The shift doesnt end with breaking obvious taboos, either. Young American Muslims are making forays into fashion, music (Islamic punk rock, anyone?) and stirring things up with unorthodox takes on staples of American pop culture. A recent controversial YouTube video, for example, shows Muslim hipsters or Mipsterz skateboarding in head scarves and skinny jeans as Jay-Zs Somewhere in America blasts in the background. Nearly 40percent of the estimated 2.75million Muslims in the U.S. are American-born and the number is growing, with the Muslim population skewing younger than the U.S. population at large, according to a 2011 Pew Research Center survey. Advocates for a more tolerant Islam say the constraints on interfaith marriage and homosexuality arent in the Quran, but are based on conservative interpretations of Islamic law that have no place in the U.S. Historically, in many Muslim countries, there are instances of unsegregated prayers and interfaith marriage. I think its fair to say the traditional Islam that we experienced excluded a lot of Muslims that were on the margins. I always felt not very welcomed by the type of Islam my parents practiced, said Tanzila Ahmed, 35, who published an anthology of love stories by Muslim American women in 2012 called Love Inshallah. Many second-generation American Muslims still practice their faith in traditional ways, but others are starting to see the Islam of their parents as more of a cultural identity, said Dr. Yvonne Haddad, a Georgetown University professor who has written extensively about Islams integration into U.S. society. As a result, theres a new emphasis on meeting for prayer and socializing in neutral spaces, such as community centers, instead of mosques, and on universal inclusion. Some of them still want a mosque, they still want to belong and to pray and others are shifting and they are very comfortable being non-religious, Haddad said. These people feel that they can get rid of the hang-ups of what the culture has defined as Muslim and maintain the beliefs and values, the spiritual values, and feel very comfortable by shedding all the other restrictions that society has put on them. In Los Angeles, a religious group called Muslims for Progressive Values has been pushing the boundaries with a female imam who performs same-sex and interfaith marriages, support groups for gay Muslims and a worship style that includes women giving sermons and men and women praying together. The group has chapters in half a dozen major U.S. cities and at least six foreign countries and last year was recognized by the United Nations as an official non-governmental organization.

on either. This is the first time he has run for office. He said he wants to stop wasteful spending on projects that are not going to happen, naming as examples Port Citrus and the Floral City bypass. He would not have voted for the boat ramp at the barge canal as a public-private partnership, as recently agreed to by the board of county commissioners. I dont want to see government and private business hand in hand, Carnahan said. Government needs to be doing its job. Private business needs to be doing their end of it. Mixing the two doesnt work. On other issues: Carnahan said the county is spending too much money on consultants, considering the number of highly intelligent people who live in the county. He targeted consultants as a source of wasteful spending, pointing to the County Road491 medical corridor project. The road should be four-laned, then private entities should take over from there, he said. While acknowledging road conditions as a critical issue, Carnahan said he would not have supported placing the referendum for a 1percent sales tax on the ballot to, if approved, fund secondary road repaving because it appears to be a double tax as the county already has a 6-cent gas tax intended for roadwork. Considering the alternatives, though, Carnahan said he would support the sales tax before imposing another municipal services benefit unit (MSBU), a designated flat fee on county tax bills. Carnahan gave retiring County Administrator Brad Thorpe a C for his performance. On water quality, Carnahan said he would work with state and other agencies to improve it and said he supports the use of slow-release fertilizers. He said removing septic tanks is a tough issue. Impact fees should be competitive with surrounding areas to attract businesses to the county, he said. this. So here I am, Im doing it. The Inverness resident said he has lived in the county his whole life 64 years. He was employed by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office from 1989 to 2006, when he retired. He served in the U.S. Navy from 1969 to 1973. Webb said he has the ability to think outside the box and the ability to convince other people to go along with him to maintain stability. He acknowledged to the Chronicleeditorial board that a group of individuals who supported him for the 2012 sheriffs race now support his opponent. I dont think its anything personal against me, Webb said. Im just collateral damage. On other issues: Infrastructure, such as roads and sewer lines, is built with taxpayer dollars, Webb said. Those who say taxpayer money should not be spent on infrastructure are talking out of both sides of their mouth. He said a certain amount of debt is reality for government, if it is to meet certain legal obligations; but, it must be well managed. When asked what he is doing about negative campaigning against him, Webb replied: I pray a lot. He also said he will use radio spots and mail-outs to project his message. Webb said he supported putting the 1 percent sales tax for road repaving on the ballot to give the people a voice. He will vote in favor because it is a discretionary tax, unlike the gas tax. The sales tax will affect consumer items of choice rather than necessity. If it passes, Webb would like to see a reduction in the gas tax. Retiring County Administrator Brad Thorpe would get a B for his performance from Webb. The County Road 491 medical corridor would bring future high-paying jobs to the county, Webb said. Building a marina on the barge canal would relieve boating traffic elsewhere, Webb said. He supports it being built with private funding.

Like us on Facebook Invigorating Retirement Living WEBBContinued from Page A1 CARHANANContinued from Page A1 Courses turn to footgolf to raise revenue MILESPARKS The LedgerWINTER HAVEN Zack Shriver looked out of place. In a land of bland polos and tan khakis, the 21year-old sported a red, white and blue jersey and a tattoo sleeve. He jogged up to his tee in shorts. The noon sun glinted off the grass at Largo Golf Course, but it looked dim compared with Shrivers neon cleats. A Budweiser perspired in his right hand as he readied for his first shot. Shriver stepped back, placed the beer on the ground, and then: BOOM! A beauty. He kicked his ball straight down the fairway. Shriver and his two buddies, Hunter Maricle and Danny George, are soccer players. Shriver plays for Louisberg College in North Carolina, George plays at Florida Gulf Coast University, and Maricle played the last three seasons at Virginia Tech. The three headed out to the Largo course at about noon recently, at a time when the course would have been empty, said Jason Wilson, the courses golf supervisor. The three brought their own soccer balls. In October, Largo began offering a new sport, footgolf, at its city golf course. Footgolf has brought in a new demographic as well as a new revenue stream. The sport is coming to Polk County and Winter Havens Willowbrook Golf Course in August. Right now we are the only course in Tampa Bay offering this, but soon we wont be, Wilson said. And thats almost a good thing, to help the sport grow. When asked if he was sure other courses were going to begin offering the sport soon, he said he didnt have any proof but had a hunch. It would be foolish not to, he said. The sport is simple to understand, especially for anyone who knows traditional golf. Footgolf is played on a golf course with a regulation soccer ball. Footgolfers tee off from the same teeboxes as golfers, but their holes are placed at shorter distances. Willowbrooks course will feature holes ranging from 54 to 215 yards long. The holes are 21 inches in diameter, 14 inches deep and usually are placed off to the side of the traditional fairway. The holes have covers so when footgolf isnt being played, Wilson said golfers dont even know the holes exist. All of the other rules are the same as golf. The player with the lowest score wins. No clubs, just feet and socks and shoes. Largos course record is 60, though the three college players said theyve seen the score beaten unofficially. The right-footed Maricle set up for a tough tee-off and kicked it with his left foot because of the holes position off to the right. Shriver and George hooted and giggled as he prepared, but he got the last laugh as his left-footed kick rolled near the green and set him up in prime position for a birdie. That is a joke, George laughed as the guys sauntered down toward their putts. An absolute joke. Willowbrook isnt bringing footgolf just as a public service. The sport has reinvented how the Largo Golf Course makes money, and Willowbrook is following suit. We looked into Footgolf and thought it would be a good opportunity, said Joe Koly, general manager at Willowbrook. We can get away with it without altering the golf course. Koly said he expects to pay about $3,000 to get the course ready for kickers. That price includes new scorecards, holes, flags and balls. That cost estimate was true for Largo when it installed its course. In terms of profit, the sport has brought in almost $40,000 from footgolf since its October inception, Wilson said. At noon on a weekday, when the course would normally be empty, he pointed out a group of four people from Lutz who were kicking and running around on one hole, the three college students playing on another, and one more group riding carts with soccer balls in tow on a third hole. How great of an idea is this, getting people out here at our worst time (for golf), Wilson said. Its a lot tougher than people think. Its a finesse game but its a game that everyone can play if they can kick a ball. Although Koly said he is expecting some pushback from traditionalist golfers, the times when Willowbrook will promote Footgolf wont be times when the course is busy with regular golfers. Largo doesnt offer the sport until after noon on weekdays. The object is to offer this amenity without affecting the everyday golfer, Koly said. Despite the different look and average demographic the average footgolfer is between 10 and 40 years old, Wilson said the two sports can use the course at the same time. Wilson said traditional golfers do more damage to his tee boxes than the kickers. ERNST PETERS/The Lakeland LedgerBalls roll into a hole July 23 during footgolf at Largo Golf Course in Largo. The sport, which is akin to golf but played with soccer balls, has brought in a new demographic and more revenue.

vehicle said it did not belong to him and that it belonged to someone he was helping move. That man was let go with a warning, but many others are not as lucky. Actually, the number of K-9 drug arrests stemming from routine traffic stops can be staggering. Glaze, who is the head of the Citrus County Sheriffs Offices K-9 unit, said in 2013 1,522 drug searches were conducted and 276 of those searches ended in drug finds. As of two weeks ago so far this year, CCSO has conducted 518 drug searches with 218 drug finds. The K-9s are the most valuable asset to the patrol unit. And everything we do is according to ILP (Intelligence-Led Policing) that the agency adopted, Glaze added. Deputy Hryc, who is one of eight handlers at CCSO, said his unit is thoroughly trained to look for behavior and actions among motorists before deciding to deploy the dogs. We dont walk the dogs for every stop. We look for things like nervousness when there is no reason to be nervous, eye contact and, in general, if you appear to be trying to cover up something by fumbling around if we ask you if there are any drugs in the vehicle, Hryc said. I have to say most people cooperate with us and are happy with what we do to get drug offenders off the roads, Hryc added. Using dogs to sniff cars during traffic stops by deputies has been somewhat controversial over the years. Those who dont like the practice say it infringes on peoples Fourth Amendment privileges regarding searches. The Supreme Court used to allow unwarranted dog sniffs only when they pertained to luggage at the airport, but that changed in 2005 when the court said it was OK for police to do the walk-around of cars with dogs. A dog sniff conducted during a concededly lawful traffic stop that reveals no information other than the location of a substance that no individual has any right to possess does not violate the Fourth Amendment, former Justice John Paul Stevens wrote in the 6-2 decision. That decision stemmed from, and also reversed, an Illinois Supreme Court ruling, which said law enforcement authorities violated Roy Caballes constitutional rights during a search after his car was clocked going 71mph in a 65mph speed zone on a highway. According to the facts of that case, while one trooper was writing him a warning ticket, another walked around his car with a dog. The dog then alerted them to the presence of drugs in the cars trunk. When the troopers searched the trunk, they found 282pounds of marijuana and arrested Caballes. He was later convicted of trafficking and sentenced to 12years in prison and fined $256,000.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

DAVIDESPO AP special correspondentWASHINGTON In more than five years in Congress, Republican Rep. John Fleming of Louisiana recalls voting only once for emergency spending that raised the federal deficit. That was this week, on a bill to improve health care for veterans, and it helps explain the lineup of winners and losers in the hours before Congress began a five-week break from the Capitol. Veterans, Israelis and governors and local officials who want their highway money all groups with demonstrated political clout were able to break through Congress customary gridlock. On the other side of the ledger, a proposal to spend more money fighting forest fires in the West and raise the deficit in the process did not make the cut in the Senate or even reach the House floor. The prospect is nonexistent for legislation to cope with the border crisis involving an influx of young Central American immigrants crossing into the U.S. illegally from Mexico. Instead, that issue seems destined to turn up in hard-edged political ads in several political races this fall. It wasnt a perfect bill, no question about it, Fleming said of the veterans health care measure in a brief interview just off the House floor. But without a way to change it, he said, I had to weigh the benefits for the veterans. Fleming wasnt the only deficit hawk to make that decision. Rep. Steve King, an Iowa Republican, did, as well. Forty dead veterans ... that was enough for me, he said, referring to reports of numerous deaths of former service members while waiting for appointments at overwhelmed facilities operated by the Department of Veterans Affairs. A third Republican, Rep. Tom Rooney of Florida, said he couldnt recall any other deficit-raising bill that has received his vote since he came to Congress in 2009. Its all part and parcel of going to war, he said, adding that if Congress is willing to raise deficits to finance combat, it should be willing to do the same to care for the troops it sends to carry out the mission. In that, Rooney sounded surprisingly like Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent, one of the most liberal lawmakers in Congress and one not known as a deficit hawk. Planes and tanks and guns are a cost of war, Sanders said as he shepherded the bill through the Senate in his capacity as Veterans Affairs Committee chairman. So is taking care of the men and women who use those weapons and fight our battles. Negotiations followed a predictable path. Democrats wanted more money than Republicans, who sought cuts to other programs to protect the deficit. Voices were raised, then lowered and the deal was cut. The cost came down, but deficits are projected to rise by $10billion. The Club for Growth, influential with conservatives, opposed the legislation. It warned the bill artificially capped costs and said lawmakers were in fact creating a new benefit program that sets taxpayers on a course to spend half atrillion dollars over the next decade. The warnings were apparently less persuasive than a crisp command from William A. Thien of the Veterans of Foreign Wars: Pass a bill or dont come back from recess. The vote was 420-5 in the House and 91-3 in the Senate. The highway measure will avert slowing or shutting down construction projects in all 50 states. Unlike the veterans bill, all of the road bills costs are covered, mostly from fees and temporarily higher tax revenues. More than $6billion comes from more taxes that will be paid by companies that will be allowed to temporarily reduce contributions to their pension funds. Higher fees paid to the Customs Service will remain in effect through 2024 rather than 2023 as is now the case, to provide another $3.5billion. Aid to Israel trumped the deficit in both parties and both houses, although at a far smaller cost than the veterans measure. House Republicans originally wanted to wait until September to send more missile defense money to Israel, now in the fourth week of a war against Hamas in Gaza. Democrats and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell had other ideas. In this case, the trade-off with the deficit was explicit. Republican Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma blocked passage of the bill on Thursday evening because it didnt include offsetting cuts elsewhere in the budget. I want to fund Israel. I want to supply them. I also want to make sure our children have a future. It is not hard to find $225million out of $4trillion, he said, referring to the size of the United States budget. Republicans privately outlined accounts that could be trimmed to keep deficits steady, but Democrats rejected the overtures. By Friday morning, the Oklahoman was no longer on the Senate floor stopping legislation his party leader had made a personal priority.David Espo is chief congressional correspondent for The Associated Press.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST3, 2014 A9 Attend a FREE Spine Seminar: call 1-888-847-8876 to RSVP.

Associated PressADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia The numbers at the St. George Armenian Apostolic Church in Addis Ababa are not adding up. Church records show an average of two funerals a year, but a wedding only every three years and a baptism every five. Some people dont come to church vertically. Only horizontally, Vartkes Nalbandian said with a laugh. Vartkes is among a small handful of people keeping Ethiopias Armenian community alive. Despite a fall in numbers from a peak of 1,200 in the 1960s to less than 100 people today, the Armenian school, church and social club still open their doors. There is more to a community than just statistics. We are proud of the Armenian contribution to Ethiopia. Its worth fighting for, said 64-year old Vartkes, the churchs fulltime acting archdeacon since the last priest left in 2002. But given the shrinking numbers, the fight can feel daunting. Armenian goldsmiths, traders and architects were invited to settle in Ethiopia more than 150 years ago by Emperor Johannes IV. Buoyed by the ties between Ethiopian and Armenian Orthodoxy, the community thrived. After the Armenian Genocide in 1915, Haile Selassie, Ethiopias regent who later became Emperor, opened his arms to the Armenian people even wider, adopting 40 orphans as wards of court. In return, the Ethio-Armenians proved fiercely loyal. One trader used his European connections to buy arms for Ethiopias resistance movement against the Italian occupation during World War II. Others ran an underground newspaper. Several gave their lives in service of their adopted homeland. Those were the best days, said 61-year old Salpi Nalbandian, who runs a leather business with her brother Vartkes and other family members. We were valued members of the court. We made the crowns the emperors wore on their heads. We were not like the Italians, we werent invaders. We contributed. But the communitys fortunes have changed through the years. Ethio-Armenians had their property and businesses confiscated when the communist Derg seized power in 1974. Many families left then, fearing for their lives. The Nalbandians stayed, determined not to give up on a country they had called home for four generations. Salpi and Vartkes musical family has made a lasting contribution to Ethiopias heritage. Great uncle Kervork wrote Ethiopias first national anthem, and their father Nerses became well known for his pioneering work in Ethio-Jazz, which blends traditional Ethi opian five-tone scales with the diminished scales of Western jazz. The pair have become the gatekeepers to a part of Ethiopian culture and history that is in danger of being forgotten. Ethio-Armenians are gradually resembling a diaspora within a diaspora. Children and grandchildren who live in the U.S. and Canada now make pilgrimages to Addis to see the place where their ancestors grew up. Most of the Armenian buildings in the Armenian safar or neighborhood in Addis Ababas city center are now empty or gone, victim to the citys appetite for high-rise buildings that are beginning to dominate the skyline. St. Georges Church holds maybe 200 people but seems larger because it often stands dark and empty. Golden orthodox crosses are the only objects that catch the light from high small windows in the churchs pointed dome. Associated PressNEW YORK Yitzhak Shuchat, a white member of a civilian patrol group, and Andrew Charles, the black son of a police officer, came face to face in 2008 in a neighborhood with a history of racial strife that much is certain. But six years later, the circumstances of the encounter in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn remain murky, even as prosecutors pursue charges against 28-yearold Shuchat alleging he attacked Charles because of his race. Shuchats supporters in the neighborhoods Orthodox Jewish community have reacted with dismay over what they call a hate crime investigation gone awry. Authorities took a minor incident and made it into a very serious situation, said state Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who is Jewish. This could have been resolved a long time ago. It makes absolutely no sense. The case received renewed attention last month when deputy U.S. Marshals retrieved Shuchat from Israel after he lost a lengthy extradition fight. He pleaded not guilty July 18 in a Brooklyn court to second-degree assault as a hate crime, attempted assault and other charges and was released on $300,000 bail put up by Jewish benefactors. Prosecutors have yet to explain why theyre treating the case as a racial incident, said Shuchats attorney, Paul Batista. In other hate crime cases, there are typically racial slurs or other clear evidence of bias. I dont know where the hate element came in, Batista said. Yitzy has no racial animus toward anyone. Asked in a recent television interview to describe their encounter, Charles responded, They attacked us, and thats about it. He didnt elaborate. The Brooklyn district attorneys office declined to comment. The case resurrected old wounds in Crown Heights, where violence exploded in 1991 after a black child, Gavin Cato, was accidentally hit and killed by a car in a Jewish motorcade. A group of blacks responded by stabbing to death a rabbinical student from Australia who was walking down the street. Over the years the tensions in Crown Heights have dissipated as the neighborhood has become more gentrified. But occasional violence linked to race or religion has persisted and can still stir up old fears. In 2008, the New York Police Department increased patrols in Crown Heights after the incident with Charles and a report that a Jewish teenager was robbed and beaten by black kids. According to police, Charles was walking with a black friend when they were confronted by a white man who pepper-sprayed Charles. Then an SUV pulled up and a white passenger later identified by police as Shuchat jumped out and hit him with a nightstick. Authorities concluded Shuchat and the other man were volunteers with the civilian patrol, Shmira, and convened a grand jury to look into the matter a move criticized by the Jewish community but welcomed by black leaders. You cant have a group, whether its the Bloods, Crips or Shmira, acting like vigilantes, then-District Attorney Charles Hynes told a local Jewish newspaper. After learning he was wanted as a suspect, Shuchat fled to Israel through Canada amid claims he couldnt get a fair trial. He was indicted on the hate crime charges a few weeks later after prosecutors concluded bias was the only motive. The defense doesnt dispute that Shuchat had a run-in with Charles. But it says Shuchat was responding to a radio call reporting that two black men were throwing rocks and cursing at Jews. It also claims Charles wasnt harmed despite being taken to the hospital. It was an argument between two people on the street, Batista said. Theres nothing more to it. Shuchat started a family in Israel before Brooklyn prosecutors sought his extradition. While he fought it, Crown Heights Jewish leaders circulated letters of support and started a defense fund. Yitzys young family does not deserve to be torn apart by a prosecution out to pander to rabble-rousers in the community, wrote the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council. Community activist Taharka Robinson, whos advising Charles family, said Shuchats decision to leave the country was telling. I dont believe anyone would flee and go through Canada to get into Israel if they did not engage in an act that injured someone, he said. Shuchats supporters see the extradition as an opportunity for vindication. Im glad hes back so things can be cleared up, Hikind said.A10SUNDAY, AUGUST3, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE NATION/WORLD 000IT8S WINDOW CLEANING Dirty Windows?

Associated PressWhen he arrived at the Texas border, Celvyn Mejia Romero was a scared 10-year-old, with a machete scar and memories of a murdered uncle as reminders of why hed embarked on a long, perilous journey from Honduras. He feared staying in his homeland and desperately wanted to join his mother in the U.S. In July 2002, he and two cousins 6 and 14 ended up near Brownsville after traveling by train, bus and foot. He remembers his grandmother, who lived in Arimis, Honduras, preparing to send him away, handing him a bag of food, some water and telling him: Get on the bus. Dont look back. ... Dont come and hug me. Dont say goodbye. That, he now says, made me cry. Twelve years later, Mejla Romero is still fighting to stay in America. His tenacious and unusually long bid for asylum offers a singular glimpse into the complex world of immigration law and rules that many legal experts say are fiendishly difficult for anyone, especially kids, to negotiate. And yet at 22, Mejia Romero, who has lived longer in the U.S. than in his native Honduras, is hoping hell prevail. I think if I win this case ... all my nightmares would end because Id know Im not going back there, he said in an interview from his lawyers office in Boston. Id feel like Im free. ... I would feel happy, happy, happy. It would be the best day of my life. Mejia Romero, whod tried once before to get to the U.S. but was turned back in El Salvador, says he empathizes with the thousands of Central American kids whove recently appeared at the southern border without their parents. Many say theyre escaping gangs back home and hoping to reunite with family. Mejia Romeros mother came to the U.S. when he was just 2, fleeing an abusive boyfriend; he remembers the joy of embracing her eight years later after his arrival. I feel sad for them, he says of the kids now trying to enter the U.S. They remind me a lot of when I was younger. ... I feel like its my life. The flood of kids at the borders has ignited a political firestorm, with the House late Friday passing strict measures that the president quickly condemned. With the Senate already on a five-week summer break, a divided Congress headed home unable to agree on solutions for what has been called a humanitarian crisis. The number of child asylum cases in recent months, though, has been relatively small. Last week, the director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services told a congressional hearing his agency had received more than 1,500 asylum applications from unaccompanied minors from last October to this June just about 4percent of the total. Most kids, though, dont file for asylum for many months after their arrival. Some critics say it has become too easy to win asylum and the standards for demonstrating persecution are too lenient. A person has to demonstrate a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership of a social group. Kids seeking asylum based on fear of gangs often have trouble convincing immigration judges thats the kind of persecution that warrants protection under U.S. law. The challenge that we face is the kinds of claims these kids are presenting, says Wendy Young, president of Kids in Need of Defense, a group that provides pro bono lawyers for unaccompanied refugee and immigrant children in the U.S. The law is very murky. ... To these kids, they dont care if its the military whos holding a gun to their head or a gang member. Theyre fleeing for their lives. What is clear is these kids wont prevail alone, says Judy London, an immigration lawyer in Los Angeles who has represented many children. Its an impossible system to navigate without a lawyer, she says. The cases, she adds, are extraordinarily time-consuming, with lawyers spending dozens of hours just getting kids to open up about their traumatic experiences. The importance of lawyers was borne out in a recent report by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University that surveyed more than 100,000 cases of unaccompanied children in immigration court from 2005 to the end of June. It found that in almost half the cases where kids were represented by a lawyer, the judge allowed them to stay. In contrast, nine of 10 kids who appeared without a lawyer were ordered deported. Some asylum cases are resolved in a few years; others can take much longer. As Mejia Romero has grown from boy to man, his lawyers have kept his bid alive, despite numerous setbacks, starting with a denial by the immigration judge in 2007. The Honduran native, then a teen, had testified that a former neighbor had struck him with a machete and used the weapon to destroy his grandmothers home, where he was living. He also said hed been harassed by a gang from a nearby village and theyd thrown him off the roof of a small house. His mother testified, too. The judge concluded those experiences were troubling but no more than a series of isolated altercations with a disgruntled neighbor and some bullies. He said they did not qualify as past persecution and, as a result, assumed there would be none if he returned. An immigration appeals board agreed. So did a federal appeals court panel in a 2-1 decision, with the majority saying the record was devoid of anything that would conclude that Mejia Romero would more likely than not be tortured if returned to Honduras. But in a strongly worded dissent, the third judge said the young mans family had suffered decades of persecution for political activities advocating land reform. The dissenting judge said it was wrong to rely exclusively on the simplistic oral testimony of Mejia Romero, whod been diagnosed with PTSD and couldnt fully articulate his familys predicament because of his young age. At the trial, for instance, the boy said his family was called Communists but didnt know what the word meant. He explained the harm he had suffered but he couldnt really explain the underlying reasons, John Willshire-Carrera, comanaging director of the Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinic at Greater Boston Legal Services, says of his client. The dissenting judge said there was powerful evidence to support claims of persecution, citing the young mans harassment and attempted recruitment by gang members and his injuries, including an 8-inch machete scar on his leg and others on his back and arm from landing in wire after being thrown from the house. He also noted the killing of Mejia Romeros step-grandfather by soldiers and the murder of his uncle. The failure by the administrative courts, he wrote, inflicts a terrible human price on a child who has turned to the United States for protection. His lawyers pressed for a review by the full court based on the divergent views of the judges. The same three-judge panel reversed itself, sending the case back to the immigration appeals board, saying that it was the best place to resolve the matter. Through a series of legal steps, Mejia Romero ended up making his bid last year to an asylum officer in the Department of Homeland Security. Because of changes in the law, a similar case nowadays would first be heard by an asylum officer and a decision would not take so long. The asylum office is considered more kid-friendly than the adversarial atmosphere of immigration court. The process has become more responsive to childrens needs ..., says Nancy Kelly, the Boston clinics co-managing director. On the other hand, a series of decisions have been made which seem to be making it harder for children who, in our opinion, are true refugees from getting relief because of the way gang-related harm is viewed. Despite his reunion with his mother, Mejia Romeros early years in America were difficult. He says he had nightmares about people chasing him and was wary of making friends, worried about gangs. I was depressed, he recalls. I didnt go out of my room. ... I used to think about my (earlier) life all the time. I was really scared. His mother, Susana, said through a translator that her son would cry a lot. It wasnt clear what he was crying about. He didnt eat well. He didnt sleep well. Even now, he says, talking about the past makes him nervous. Mejia Romero works for a company that provides meals for airlines. He dropped out of high school his senior year to help support his family, but says if allowed to remain in the U.S., hed like to finish and attend college someday. Both mother and son say they live with constant dread hell be sent back. Those people who came after us are there ... and I feel he may very well be killed, his mother says. For sure, hell be persecuted. She tries to remain confident that after a dozen years, this ruling will be in their favor. You have to have patience, she says. Were always hoping for the best.

Syria rebels raid Lebanese town, capture troopsBEIRUT Rebels fighting in Syrias civil war crossed into Lebanon and raided a border town Saturday, killing and capturing security force members in the most serious incursion into the tiny country during its neighbors 3-yearold conflict. The rebels, who included foreign fighters, demanded to trade soldiers and police officers it captured in Arsal for some of the most dangerous detainees, the Lebanese army said in a statement. Masked gunmen roamed the streets as Lebanese helicopter gunships flew over the town, about 55 miles from the capital, Beirut. A Lebanese army general told The Associated Press that the gunmen attacked army positions near Arsal and troops returned fire. Another official said the gunmen also took control of the main police station in the town.Landslide blocks river in NepalKATMANDU, Nepal A massive landslide killed at least eight people and blocked a mountain river in northern Nepal on Saturday, causing the water to form a lake that was threatening to burst and sweep several villages, officials said. The death toll could climb because many houses were buried under piles of rock and soil or submerged by the rising water, said police official Arun Chetri, adding that the number of missing people could not be immediately determined.UK prime minister says NATO must rethink RussiaLONDON Britains Prime Minister David Cameron has called on NATO to rethink its long-term relationship with Russia following its illegal actions in Ukraine and strike an agreement on how to sustain a robust presence in Eastern Europe. In a letter to alliance leaders released Saturday, Cameron said it is clear that Russia views NATO as an adversary and that member states must strengthen their ability to respond quickly to any threat. His comments follow the release of a report from a British parliamentary committee, which said Russian actions have posed fundamental questions about the alliances ability to defend member states. Recent events in Ukraine, following the cyberattack on Estonia in 2007 and the Russian invasion of Georgia in 2008, have revealed alarming deficiencies in the state of NATO preparedness, which will be tough to fix, the committee said. Cameron said todays world is more unpredictable as Russia has ripped up the rulebook with its illegal annexation of Crimea and aggressive destabilization of Ukraine. The prime ministers letter comes six weeks before a NATO summit in Wales, the first such meeting in the U.K. since Margaret Thatcher hosted the alliance 1990 as the Cold War was coming to a close. Toxins foul citys waterTOLEDO, Ohio Toxins possibly from algae on Lake Erie fouled the water supply of the states fourthlargest city Saturday, forcing officials to issue warnings not to drink the water and the governor to declare a state of emergency as worried residents descended on stores, quickly clearing shelves of bottled water. The city advised about 400,000 residents in Toledo and most of its suburbs not to brush their teeth with or boil the water because that would only increase the toxins concentration. Stray bullet kills toddlerPHILADELPHIA Police have released the name of a 3-year-old Philadelphia girl killed by a stray bullet while sitting on her front porch. Police said Saturday that Tynirah Borum was shot in the chest Friday night in the Grays Ferry neighborhood. She died at a hospital. Investigators said a man on a bike and another man got into an argument, and the cyclist fired three shots. The other man was shot in the head and critically wounded. Stray bullets hit two bystanders and the girl.Six wildfires keep Calif. firefighters busySAN FRANCISCO Thousands of federal, state and local firefighters were feverishly attacking at least six major wildfires in central and far northern California on Saturday, five of which grew rapidly overnight and prompted evacuations of homes, vacation cabins and recreation areas. The scope and intensity of the blazes, three of them sparked by dry lightning as the state copes with a severe drought, was comparable to the fire activity California doesnt usually see until September, California Department of Forestry and Fire protection Dennis Mathisen said. The fires are burning as far south as the Sierra National Forest, about 70 miles from where another fire sparked evacuations in and around Yosemite National Park earlier in the week, and as far north as the state border, where a blaze that began in southern Oregon had consumed 5.5 square miles and threatened about two dozen homes in Californias Siskiyou County. So far, no injuries have been reported. From wire reports NATION& WORLD Page A12SUNDAY, AUGUST 3, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE World BRIEFS From wire reports Israeli soldier feared abducted is dead Associated PressJERUSALEM An Israeli soldier the military feared had been abducted by Palestinian gunmen in a firefight that shattered a temporary ceasefire in Gaza has been declared dead, ending what could have been a nightmare scenario for Israel hours after it signaled it plans to scale back its operation against Hamas militants. The military announced early Sunday that 23-year-old Hadar Goldin of the Givati infantry brigade had been killed in battle on Friday. Israels defense minister, along with the chief military rabbi, met with the soldiers family at their home in the town of Kfar Saba. Hundreds of people from around the country had gathered outside their home, praying and showing their support. There was an outpouring of grief when the militarys announcement was made public. The Israeli military had previously said it believed the soldier was grabbed in a Hamas ambush about an hour after an internationally brokered cease-fire took effect Friday morning. Hamas on Saturday distanced itself from the soldiers alleged capture, which had prompted widespread international condemnation. U.S. President Barack Obama, U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon and others had called for his immediate and unconditional release. For Israel, the capture of a soldier or civilian by Palestinian militants is a nightmare scenario with far-reaching implications. Israel has gone to great lengths in the past to get back its captured soldiers. In 2011, it traded over a thousand Palestinian prisoners, many involved in deadly attacks on civilians, for a single Israeli soldier who had been captured by Hamas-allied militants in 2006. Slain soldiers son to get lost medal Associated PressCHICAGO John Trinca couldnt remember the name of the soldier who died right next to him minutes after they met during World War II, and all Thomas Bateman Jr. knew of his fathers death was that it happened in 1945 in the Philippines. The two will meet for the first time today thanks largely to Tom McAvoy, who made good on a quest to return a lost war medal he found as a child in Chicago that only had the recipients engraved name as a clue: Thomas Bateman. This year 69 years after a bullet from a Japanese machine gun killed Pvt. Thomas Bateman their stories intersected for the first time, giving them answers to questions that tugged at them for years. At the ceremony, the slain soldiers son will receive the lost Purple Heart his father paid for with his life. I had a newspaper article that my grandmother kept that said he was killed and thats about all I knew, said Bateman, 69, who was just shy of his first birthday when his father was killed. The men learned of one another thanks to Purple Hearts Reunited, a foundation that works to return the medals to their recipients or their recipients families. Zachariah Fike, a Vermont National Guard captain who was awarded the medal after he was wounded in Afghanistan in 2010, has managed to reunite about 100 Purple Hearts with their rightful owners since starting the foundation. Theres a story behind each of the medals that have been returned, but none quite like that of Bateman, who was an infantryman with the 21st Infantry Regiment, 24th Infantry Division. To find the guy who found the medal, the guy with (Bateman) when he died and the son, said Fike, who will present the medal to Bateman on Sunday. This one sends chills. What is known about this medal begins in the 1950s, when McAvoy spotted it on the basement floor of his familys Chicago apartment building while helping a janitor sort garbage. He gave it to his mother and forgot about it. Then, about seven years ago, one of his brothers mentioned that he found a Purple Heart while going through their mothers belongings after her death. My brothers and I, we said, We have to find out who this person is and give it to the family, said McAvoy, 74. After some calls to VFW halls and other efforts came up empty, someone put him in touch with a woman involved with veterans issues. That led to a call from a local state senators office, telling him about Fike. McAvoy mailed the medal to Fike, who quickly recognized by the way it was engraved that Bateman had been killed in action. He soon reached out to Bateman Jr. in Memphis, Tennessee, and the slain soldiers son helped solve the mystery about how the medal ended up in the Chicago apartment building: His fathers mother once lived there. Its still not known, though, how it ended up in the garbage and whether Batemans mother still lived there at the time. Fikes search also led him to Trinca, a retiree who had recently told a newspaper about how he finally learned the name of the soldier he saw killed more than 60 years earlier and had bought a memorial brick with the soldiers name on it to honor him. Associated PressVeteran John Trinca, above, was with U.S. Army Pvt. Thomas Bateman, at right, a soldier he had just met in the Philippines in 1945 during World War II, when Bateman was killed from Japanese machine gun fire. The Purple Heart that Bateman paid for with his life became lost and was eventually found in the 1950s by Tom McAvoy as a kid in Chicago. Trinca will be on hand today when the Purple Heart will be returned to Batemans family in Grayslake, Ill. Nation BRIEFS Experts: Obama can do a lot to change immigration Associated PressWASHINGTON What can President Barack Obama actually do without Congress to change U.S. immigration policies? A lot, it turns out. There are some limits under federal law, and anything the White House ultimately decides to do may be challenged in court as unconstitutional. But leading legal experts say the White House almost certainly could delay indefinitely efforts to deport millions of immigrants already in the U.S. illegally, and it could give them official work permits that would allow them to legally find jobs, obtain drivers licenses and pay income taxes. Here is what Obama could not do without approval from Congress: He couldnt generally give large groups of immigrants permission to remain permanently in the United States, and he couldnt grant them American citizenship. And he couldnt generally make them eligible for federal or state social benefit programs, such as welfare payments, food stamps or the administrations health care plans. There is prosecutorial discretion which can be exercised in these sorts of situations, said Leon Rodriguez, a former Justice Department lawyer and the newly confirmed director for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. In most enforcement realms, generally there is pretty broad discretion. Rodriguez spoke earlier this week on Capitol Hill during an oversight hearing for the House Judiciary Committee. With Congress declining to approve significant changes to immigration laws, the White House is hinting that Obama is considering broadening a program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals to temporarily shield from deportation many young immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and allow them to get a work permit. Immigration reform advocates have been pushing to include parents of U.S. citizens and the parents of young immigrants already protected under the earlier program, which covers more than 700,000 immigrants so far. All told, expanding the program could affect as many as 5 million immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally. Republicans in Congress, including House Speaker John Boehner, have complained that Obama is failing to enforce U.S. laws by effectively disregarding illegal immigration. The House Judiciary Committee chairman, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said Obamas immigration policies are undermining the fundamental constitutional principles that Congress creates the law and president is bound to enforce them. Associated PressPresident Obama said he will meet the immigration challenge with or withouht the help of Congress. David Cameron Killed in battle on Friday

Whitesand beaches. Protected islands. The Panhandle has all of those things and more enough to keep an adventurous soul busy for a long, long time. I spent about a month in the Panhandle this summer, and that wasnt nearly long enough to see everything I wanted to while there.I was able to explore much of the area, however, and these were some of the highlights of my stay.

A14SUNDAY, AUGUST3, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: My husband has always been very controlling. I feel as though he puts me in a box and only lets me out when he decides its necessary. He always has to know who I am talking to and where I am every minute of every day. He is obsessive when it comes to texting and calling me, and if I dont respond fast enough, he gets upset. He has a very short fuse, but has never hit or shoved me or done anything physical. He doesnt believe I should talk about our issues with friends or family, only with him. But when I try, he says he isnt doing anything wrong and that Im the one with a problem. He wont go for marriage counseling. A few close friends and some family members are aware of what goes on and agree it is not right. Ive tried leaving a few times, but always return when he claims he will change. But, Annie, I know he will never change and dont understand why I havent just left permanently. Of course, money is part of the problem, and we have two small children. I work full time and still cant make ends meet. I understand there is state aid to help me, but was told the waiting list is long, and it would be a year before I could get into any housing. I cant live with my family. Theres no room. Ive always been an optimistic person, but Ive become depressed over this. I keep to myself a lot. I realize now that this is how my husband was raised. He needs to be the center of attention at all times, and his parents believe he walks on water. Is there any hope to make this work? Any Light at the End of My Tunnel? Dear Light: It can only work if your husband agrees to counseling so he can learn to loosen the chains. The fact that your husband hasnt hit you yet doesnt mean he wont. Many controlling spouses become physical abusers over time. And abusers can be quite persuasive and charming when they need to be, which is why you keep going back to him. Please contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline (thehotline.org) at 800-799-SAFE and ask for help.

Vets sought for classroom talksThe Veterans Appreciation Week Ad Hoc Coordinating Committee will conduct its annual Veterans in the Classroom program, Nov. 5 to 14, as part of its 22 annual Veterans Appreciation Week activities. Coordinated by the Citrus County Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), the Veterans in the Classroom program brings living history to the classrooms of the countys public and private schools, as well as homeschool groups. Veterans share with students their firsthand military experiences and travels while serving in uniform around the world in peace and war. The model Veterans in the Classroom program was recognized in 2008 with a Florida Education Foundation award. The programs success has generated the need for additional veterans to share their experiences with students. Persian Gulf, Afghanistan, Iraq, Air Force, National Guard and women veterans are especially needed as participants. All interested veterans are encouraged to call Mac McLeod at 352-7461384, email cmcleod670 @earthlink.net, or call Bob Crawford at 352270-9025 or email baddogusmc@tampa bay.rr.com.

Rotary Club helping veterans Special to the ChronicleThe Citrus County Board of County Commissioners recently proclaimed Aug. 7 as Purple Heart Recognition Day in Citrus County. The Purple Heart is a combat award exclusively for those members of the Armed Forces of the United States who are killed, died of wounds or wounded by an enemy instrument of war. The Purple Heart, originally known as the Military Badge of Merit, was established by the General Orders of General George Washington 232 years ago on Aug. 7, 1782, and is now the oldest military decoration in the world in present use. The organization known as the Military Order of the Purple Heart, which is the only Congressionally chartered veterans organization exclusively for combat-wounded veterans, was formed 81 years ago in 1932 for the protection and mutual interest of Purple Heart recipients. More than 1.7 million members of the Armed Forces of the United States have been awarded the Purple Heart for their battlefield sacrifices since the first adopted as a combat award by the War Department on Feb. 22, 1932. The Board of County Commissioners pays tribute to all recipients of the Purple Heart for their extraordinary sacrifice and gallantry on the field of battle. Purple Heart Recognition Day

Page A16SUNDAY, AUGUST 3, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE VETERANS C.J. RISAK CorrespondentIf, by chance, you ever wanted to know anything about tanks, the guy to ask is Gerry Hodum. And not just because Hodum turned a curiosity into an obsessive thirst for knowledge. For him, there was a definite need to know, mainly because if he didnt, lives would be lost.That need pre-dated the Korean War conflict, during which Hodum was in command of a tank. He would remain involved with tanks through much of his military career that officially ended after 30 years in 1977, when he left the U.S. Marine Corps to take a job with a firm based in Maryland that was involved in the production of tanks. He would remain in that position for 25 years, retiring in 2002 a year after he, in his words, popped a cap (or fired a tanks main battle gun) for the last time. But perhaps one of the more interesting stories regarding Hodum was how he became a Marine in the first place. He lied. And he got his parents to go along with it, satisfying his compulsion to join the Corps by enlisting in 1947. He was 14 at the time. His parents signed off, saying he was 18. I was 14 and my dad signed me in, he said. I enlisted on Oct. 27 of one month past my 14th birthday. A native of Brooklyn and Queens in NewYork, Hodums interest in the Corps was stoked at the end of World War II. And it began because he could sing. It started when I was 9 years old, I was an alto soprano singer at Grace Church in Manhattan, the Floral City resident said. It was during the war, 1945, I was 11 or 12 and there was this radio station and they had a contest come and sing, and if youre selected the winner will get voice lessons at Carnegie Hall with Mr. so-and-so, a very big name at the time. So, my grandmother wrote a letter and I went and tried out and ended up one of five finalists. They asked what are you going to sing now, I had already done two or three songs, and my grandmother said Its wartime, sing one of the service songs. You like them all. Hodum selected the USMC theme because I liked their uniforms. Then it happened. I made a mistake as I was singing it, he said, but I didnt let it fluster me. I just went over it and caught up to where I was supposed to be. But after I thought, well, thats that. What Hodum didnt know was his grandmother had been busy, calling the Brooklyn Naval Base and suggesting they tune in to listen. They did, and they were impressed, sending a letter back to his grandmother. It read, Your grandson sang the song beautifully. He made one mistake, but like all good Marines he kept working at it. Their positive impression went further. A certain cleaning product sponsored the competition, with the winner chosen by the number of the products boxtops cast. As fate would have it, that product was used by the Navy. He won, and he knew why. Somewhere in the Navy there was a warehouse filled with (cleaning) boxes with no tops, Hodum said, laughing. It was amazing. Hodums service career got its first major test in December 1951, when he shipped out to Korea. He had just been promoted to sergeant and he was in command of a tank section, his unit consisting of five modified bulldozer M4 Shermans working mainly in a support-type role. Their job was to make roadways passable using the different kinds of apparatus each of the Shermans had, including clearing land mines. Hodum was 18 at that time. While in Korea, Hodums tank unit was part of Operation Snatch, a plan devised to rescue those involved in the peace talks at Kaesong, a city then occupied by North Korea. A thin demilitarized zone stretched from South Korea to Kaesong; should the situation change and the delegates safety be jeopardized, Hodums unit would intervene. We were to go up the road and bring them out, as many as we could get out, he said. No matter what happened, the object was to get everybody up there out. Thank God, we never had to do that. That lack of trust between North and South Korea still exists. Nobody trusted anybody, with good reason, Hodum said. He would have several other stops in his lengthy military career, spending two years in Puerto Rico and going into the Dominican Republic to help end the uprising there in 1965. He was also offshore Vietnam in the earlier stages of that war, working at the time in tank repair. While in the states, much of his time was spent at Camp Lejeune, located near Jacksonville, North Carolina. He bought a three-bedroom house there, after which he and his wife raised seven children of their own, plus a niece and a nephew. The thing I liked about the military was the discipline, he said. It gave me something to aim for all the time, to be the best I could, and I worked toward that goal. My pet phrase was, Every day and every way, a little bit better. The matter about his age was cleared up after hed been in the Corps for a decade. After 10 years in the service, I let them know, he said. All it was, I wrote a letter and said I request my birthday be changed to the following as evidenced by my birth certificate. So I sent that in and I got (a reply) back that said, Received, acknowledged, and that was it. Hodum left the service in 1977. STEPHEN E.

Associated PressPORTLAND, Ore. The Portland City Council voted Wednesday to legalize short-term rentals in single-family homes, giving added legitimacy to rental websites such as Airbnb. Homeowners will be allowed to rent one or two bedrooms once a safety inspection is done and neighbors are notified. Mayor Charlie Hales and the city commissioners said they want Portland to be active in the sharing economy. Later this year, they plan to discuss whether to also legalize short-term rentals in apartment buildings and condos. Airbnb, the popular online company based in San Francisco, agreed to collect lodging taxes and has been doing so since July 1. David Owen, regional head of public policy for Airbnb, said Portland is the first city for which the company is collecting such taxes. Besides nearly $500,000 in projected tax revenue for the first 12 months, Airbnb plans to add 160 jobs to Portland by establishing the city as its operational headquarters for North America. The council voted 4-0 in favor of the measure. vacation destinations. Anyone who hasnt spent time on the Emerald Coast and in Northwest Florida is missing out.Chipola River and Baltzell Spring, MariannaThe Chipola River is about 90 miles long and runs through Calhoun, Gulf and Jackson counties and into the Apalachicola River. For a quick adventure and a nice payoff in the form of an out-of-theway spring, put your canoe or kayak in (or rent one) at Florida Caverns State Park. From there, its about a mile upriver to Baltzell Spring, also called Bozell Spring, which is only accessible by boat. There is a long spring run, and the spring has a small basin about 18 feet deep and an underwater cave. When we were there, my husband and I spent hours on the water and never saw any other people, but there were plenty of turtles and alligators. A thunderstorm and some heavy rain on the way back added to the adventure. Florida Caverns State Park also has full-facility campsites. For more information, visit www. floridastateparks.org/ floridacaverns.St. Andrews Beach and Shell Island, Panama City BeachTake a look around Panama City Beach and youll see why the Emerald Coast got its name. St. Andrews State Park is home to 1.5 miles of beach, and the parks mainland is a short ferry ride away from Shell Island, an undeveloped 700acre barrier island where visitors can snorkel among fish, sponges, coral and other aquatic creatures. Dolphin sightings around the island and state park are common. On the parks mainland, regular beach activities are the norm, and there is a separate protected, shallow kiddie pool swimming area for children and families. St. Andrews State Park offers full-facility camping, and many of the campsites are waterfront with direct access to the lagoon. My husband and I got a great waterfront RV site, and we got accustomed to seeing dolphins from our front door. Visit www.floridastate parks.org/standrews.St. George IslandThis unspoiled barrier island took the No. 3 spot on Dr. Beachs Top 10 Beaches for 2014. Protected as a state park, St. George Island has 9 miles of white-sand beaches and is home to a variety of wildlife, including sea turtles and numerous species of shore birds. At the right time of day, the dunes are like a Clyde Butcher photograph that has come to life, and if youre like me, youll spend entirely too much time photographing them. People come to St. George Island to paddle, swim, shell, fish, camp and enjoy nature. Primitive campsites and full-facility campsites are available.

Special to the ChronicleWe have all heard about invasive animals (remember the snakes in the everglades?) But, did you know non-native plants can be equally as destructive? Some invasive plants may be attractive (often why they were imported in the first place), but their beauty does not outweigh the damage they do. In addition to their environmental damage, they cost millions of taxpayer dollars each year as we try to control them. There are steps you can do to help protect our native habitats (both plants and animals). The first step is to learn to identify what these invasive plants are. The schedule for the August free plants seminars is: 2 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 6, at Floral City Library 1:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 8, at Coastal Region Library 1 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 12, at Lakes Region Library 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 13, at Central Ridge Library 1 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 20, at Citrus Springs Library 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 26, at Homosassa Library Master gardener volunteers will be available to discuss this topic, answer questions, identify plant problems and offer solutions to gardening problems. The master gardeners free educational seminars focus each month on a different aspect of growing and maintaining plants in Florida. Gardeners can also contact the Citrus County Extension anytime during business hours at 352-5275700 (ask for Extension Director BJ Jarvis or any on-duty master gardener) to have your questions addressed, or email Master g1@bocc.citrus.fl.us.

Baseball/ B2 Scoreboard/B3 Recreation briefs/ B4 Golf/B4 NFL/B4 Teixeira goes yard and the Yankees hang a 6-spot on Boston at Fenway./B3 Section BSUNDAY, AUGUST 3, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE 000IWKC Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins reacts Friday after seeing the Indiana Pacers Paul George get injured during the USA Basketball Showcase game in Las Vegas.Associated Press Associated PressPaul Georges broken right leg has left two teams reeling. The U.S. mens national team, too emotional to finish the exhibition game it was playing when George suffered the gruesome injury Friday night, had to shift its focus away from the World Cup of Basketball to thinking about an injured teammate. The Indiana Pacers, a round short of the NBA Finals the last two years, were left pondering a season without their best player. This is a tough blow for not only USA Basketball, but for the Indiana Pacers, USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo said. Both were thinking only of George, who remained at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas after surgery to repair an open tibia-fibula fracture. He was expected to remain hospitalized for about three days and the Pacers hope he can return to Indianapolis next week, though it will be months, perhaps a year, before he can return to the court. Any discussion regarding the future of our team would be inappropriate at this time, Pacers President Larry Bird said in a statement. Our focus is solely on Paul and doing whatever we can to help. Georges loss comes on the heels of Lance Stephensons departure to Charlotte in free agency, leaving Indiana See GEORGE/ Page B3 In a split second, a seasons dreams shattered Associated PressTampa Bay Rays third baseman Evan Longoria and third base coach Tom Foley exchange a low five after Saturday Logoria hit a two-run home run off L.A.

Wilson and the Los Angeles Angels 10-3 Saturday.Longoria put the Rays up 2-0 with his 13th homer of the season, connecting in the first off Wilson (8-7). Longoria became the first Tampa Bay player to reach 600 career RBIs. Brandon Guyer hit a two-run single that ended Wilsons night during a four-run second that put Tampa Bay ahead 6-0. Wilson made his first start since July 9 because of a sprained right ankle. Chris Archer (7-6) struck out nine over six innings. Logan Forsythe hit a solo homer and Zobrist and an RBI double during a four-run eighth. Howie Kendrick and Hank Conger both had RBI doubles in a three-run fourth that cut the Angels deficit to 6-3. Los Angeles had two on with one out in the eighth, but failed to score when Kendrick and David Freese struck out. Angels slugger Josh Hamilton went 0 for 3 with three strikeouts and a walk one day after being hit on the left middle finger by a pitch. Los Angeles reliever Joe Thatcher left in the fourth with a sprained left ankle, which occurred while fielding Guyers bunt single. The Rays are 5-3 on a current nine-game homestand. Its their first winning homestand since May 20-25. James Loney added three hits and has reached base in 21 consecutive games.

Associated PressBOSTON Derek Jeter had a two-run double, Mark Teixeira hit a solo homer and New Yorks bullpen worked 4 1/3 solid innings, leading the Yankees to a 6-4 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday. Stephen Drew, acquired from the Red Sox on Thursday, added an RBI double as the Yankees won for just the second time in six games. Mike Napoli had a two-run homer for the Red Sox, who have lost nine of 11. Yoenis Cespedes made his Red Sox debut and went 1 for 4 with a single. Shawn Kelley (2-3) pitched 1 1/3 innings of hitless relief for the victory and David Robertson got the final three outs for his 28th save.AMERICAN LEAGUE Athletics 8, Royals 3OAKLAND, Calif.

Two days after being traded fromthe sagging World Series champion Boston Red Sox, Lester and Gomes teamed up to boost the club with the best record in baseball. The 6-foot-4 Lester (11-7) instantlybecame an imposing presence on the mound in the pitcher-friendly Coliseum. Fans in the crowd of 30,097 cheered the lefty as he went through his warmup routine in left field, then Lester tipped his cap to a roaring ovation when he left after throwing 6 2/3 innings. Back with the AL West-leading As, Gomes delivered in an eight-run fifth inning. He singled and scored off Jason Vargas (8-5), then hit a hit a two-run single off Aaron Crow.Astros 8, Blue Jays 2HOUSTON Jon Singleton wound up with an inside-the-park home run after a call was reversed on video replay, Chris Carter and Jason Castro also homered, and the Houston Astros beat the Toronto Blue Jays 8-2. Brett Oberholtzer pitched seven strong innings and Jose Altuve scored the go-ahead run on back-to-back throwing errors by Toronto. Singleton drove in L.J.

Oberholtzer (4-7) gave up two runs on six hits while striking out five and walking one to win his second consecutive start.Indians 2, Rangers 0CLEVELAND Lonnie Chisenhall and Nick Swisher delivered run-scoring singles in the sixth inning, and five pitchers combined on a five-hitter, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 2-0 victory over the Texas Rangers. The game was tied 0-0 through five innings before the Indians pieced together a rally. Scott Atchison (4-0) pitched 1 2/3 innings and worked out of a two-on, no-out jam in the sixth. Cody Allen worked a shaky ninth for his 14th save. The win moved the Indians (55-55) back to .500 while the Rangers have dropped 18 of 21 away from home and are the worst team in the majors (43-67).Twins 8, White Sox 6CHICAGO Trevor Plouffe got four hits and the Minnesota Twins stopped Jose Abreu, rallying past the Chicago White Sox 8-6 to end a three-game skid. Abreus hitting streak ended at 21 games, longest in the AL this season. He went 0 for 3 with two walks, one of them intentional. The Cuban rookie, who leads the majors with 31 home runs, had reached base in 10 straight plate appearances before he popped up in the first inning. Plouffe doubled twice and drove in two runs. Oswaldo Arcia was credited with a two-run double in the eighth, giving the Twins a 7-6 lead, when his liner glanced off the glove of left fielder Alejandro De Aza.Mariners 6, Orioles 3BALTIMORE Robinson Cano hit a three-run homer, Dustin Ackley had a solo shot and the Seattle Mariners got an effective outing from their bullpen in a 6-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. Cano was 2 for 23 lifetime against Miguel Gonzalez (5-6) before connecting in the fifth inning to put the Mariners up 4-1. It was his eighth home run of the year, the first in 15 games since July 12. That was enough to give Seattle its eighth win in 21 games since July 7. Caleb Joseph homered and Manny Machado had three hits for the Orioles, whose previous seven games were decided by one run.INTERLEAGUE Tigers 11, Rockies 5DETROIT Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and J.D. Martinez homered and the Detroit Tigers beat the Colorado Rockies 11-5 on Saturday night. Alex Avila had three hits and drove in two runs and Ian Kinsler three hits and an RBI for the Tigers, who scored in all eight innings they batted, had 16 hits and got at least a hit from each batter in the starting lineup. Rick Porcello (13-5) got the win to tie teammate Max Scherzer for the American League lead in victories. He struck out a season-high 10 on the same day that newly acquired David Price joined his new teammates and a starting rotation that also includes Justin Verlander and Anibal Sanchez.NATIONAL LEAGUE Mets 4, Giants 2NEW YORK Jacob deGrom outpitched Jake Peavy in a tantalizing hitless duel that carried into the seventh inning Saturday night before the New York Mets broke loose and beat the San Francisco Giants 4-2. Pablo Sandoval doubled off deGrom with two outs in the top of the seventh for the games first hit. Peavy was perfect until Daniel Murphy hit a one-out double into the bottom of the seventh on a ball that left fielder Michael Morse misjudged. The Mets went on to score four runs to back deGrom (6-5), and the rookie won win his fifth straight start. Peavy (1-11) lost his 11th decision in a row, a streak that started with Boston.Cardinals 9, Brewers 7ST. LOUIS Kolten Wong broke out of a slump with a home run and three RBIs and Justin Masterson won his St. Louis debut as the Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 9-7. St. Louis, which had lost three of its previous four, moved two games behind first-place Milwaukee in the NL Central. The Brewers had a two-game winning streak snapped. Wong, who entered the contest mired in a 6 for 36 skid, went 3 for 5. He slammed a bases-loaded single to trigger a five-run outburst in the second inning that put St. Louis ahead to stay 6-1. He also hit a solo homer in the first.Marlins 2, Reds 1 (10 innings)MIAMI Christian Yelichs RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning lifted the Miami Marlins to a 2-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The Marlins snapped a three-game losing streak overall and a sevengame skid to the Reds. Jeff Mathis doubled to left to lead off the 10th off Sam LeCure (1-3), advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt by Reed Johnson, and scored on the base hit to center by Yelich.Nationals 11, Phillies 0WASHINGTON Anthony Rendon homered and drove in four runs, Jordan Zimmermann pitched seven shutout innings, and the Washington Nationals routed the Philadelphia Phillies 11-0. Philadelphia starter A.J. Burnett (611) and manager Ryne Sandberg didnt last long. Both were ultimately ejected when Burnett motioned and yelled toward home plate umpire Chris Guccione after a ball call during Washingtons four-run second inning.

The Pacers had the Eastern Conferences best record last season at 56-26 and could have been the favorite to reach the NBA Finals after LeBron James departure from Miami if they could have brought their core back. Now, they could struggle just to stay in the playoff picture in the toughened-up East. James arrival in Cleveland, with Kevin Love perhaps still to come, could make the Cavaliers the team to beat. Or it could be Chicago, with Derrick Rose looking back in form after another surgery while playing for the Americans this week and with Pau Gasol joining the Bulls next season. Washington and Toronto figure to keep building after their playoff appearances last season, Miami rebounded well after losing James to keep a competitive team together, and the Pacers without George might not be as good as any of them. There is no question about the impact on our team but our goal is to be as strong-willed and determined as Paul will be in coming back, Bird said. Our franchise has had setbacks in its history but has demonstrated the abilities to recover. Paul will provide the example of that off the court and it is up to the rest of us to provide that example on the court. The U.S. team will try to do the same, but the Americans arent ready to move forward yet. They were putting on a good show for the fans in Las Vegas, then were going to get down to business Saturday. The roster would be trimmed from 20 to about 14 or 15 finalists, and those who made the cut would return when the team resumed practice on Aug. 14 in Chicago. Plans changed after Georges right leg smashed into the basket stanchion and crumpled as he was trying to block James Hardens fast-break layup. He was taken off on a stretcher as teammates watched, all too upset to talk afterward. Colangelo said roster decisions would wait, even with the tournament opener in exactly four weeks away. We just need to step away, he said. The Americans are better equipped to overcome Georges loss, with a deep roster that might still be the best in the world even without the AllStar forward who figured to start. The bigger impact for the Americans could come in the future, if fear of injuries causes top players to decline to play. Some NBA executives have long argued against the risk of having their players compete in international tournaments, though Colangelo points to its benefits, noting how players such as Rose and Dwyane Wade had their best seasons after suiting up for the U.S. Bird, who played on the 1992 Dream Team, made clear where the Pacers stood. We still support USA Basketball and believe in the NBAs goals of exposing our game, our teams and players worldwide, he said. This is an extremely unfortunate injury that occurred on a highly visible stage, but could also have occurred anytime, anywhere. GEORGEContinued from Page B1 Associated PressOlympiacos fans cheer Saturday during the second half of the teams match against Manchester City during the Guinness International Champions Cup in Minneapolis. Associated PressMINNEAPOLIS Dimitrios Diamantakos scored twice in regulation and Roberto Jimenez Gago made two saves in a shootout to help Olimpiakos beat Manchester City 5-4 on penalty kicks Saturday after a 2-2 tie in the International Challenge Cup game. The biggest concern for the clubs coming in was the condition of the grass field that had been installed by the tournament promoter over the artificial turf at TCF Bank Stadium, home of the University of Minnesota football team. Although seams in the sod were clearly visible, the players avoided injury on a day when temperatures climbed into the upper 80s. We think the field was terrible, the conditions were terrible, it was very hot today, but our team didnt care about this, Olympiacos coach Michel Gonzalez said through an interpreter.

From staff reports Associated PressSergio Garcia tees off on the ninth hole Saturday during the third round of the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio. Associated PressAKRON, Ohio Sergio Garcia was in the trees left of the 18th fairway, looking through a gap in the branches to find a way out. Ahead of him was Rory McIlroy, giving his 35-foot birdie putt a little body English before it fell for birdie. Garcia never lost command of the Bridgestone Invitational on Saturday, even after a storm delay of just over three hours. He started with a three-shot lead, stretched it to six shots at one point and closed with three good pars for a 3-under 67, three shots ahead of McIlroy. The Spaniard just lost a small measure of comfort. McIlroy, coming off a wire-towire win in the British Open, might be the last player anyone wants to see right behind. Ive got to keep doing the same thing, make sure that I have good confidence in myself, that I play nicely, and then see what happens, Garcia said. If Rory comes out, or whoever is behind us comes out, and get crazy like I did on Friday, then it is what it is. But hopefully, Ill be able to play well again and be all the way up there tomorrow. Garcia, who seized control with a career-best 61 on Friday, was at 14-under 196. McIlroy birdied his last two holes for the second straight day for a 66. Sunday is set up as a replay of The Open only with the roles reversed. But this isnt a two-man race for a World Golf Championship title. Marc Leishman had a 68 and was five shots behind, while Adam Scott returned from the rain delay carrying only his long putter, the only weapon he needed to convert one last birdie for a 65. He was six shots behind, along with Keegan Bradley (68) and Justin Rose (70). The race wont feature defending champion Tiger Woods. The eight-time winner at Firestone made only one birdie on Saturday and shot 72. He was 15 shots behind. Garcia, who won the Qatar Masters this year, has been building toward moments like this. Two weeks after his runner-up finish to McIlroy at Hoylake, the Spaniard has performed so solidly at Firestone that he went 37 consecutive holes without a bogey. Three pars at the end helped keep in front. He pulled his lay-up shot on the par-5 16th into deep rough, which felt even thicker after the rain delay. Garcia managed to judge it perfectly to clear the water. He hooked his tee shot on the 17th hole and hit 8-iron safely onto the green. The biggest challenge was the 18th, where he had to clear trees with a shot from the rough. He opened up the face of a 7-iron to play a big cut with such elevation, and it cleared the back bunker, leaving him 75 feet away. He lagged it down to 5 feet, and lightly pumped his fist when it fell.Kenny Perry leads 3M ChampionshipBLAINE, Minn. Kenny Perry eagled the last hole after waiting out a thunderstorm to take a one-shot lead Saturday after the second round of the Champions Tours 3M Championship. Perry shot a 9-under 63 to reach 16-under 128 at TPC Twin Cities. The six-time senior winner birdied the par-3 17th and was on the green on the par-5 18th when play was stopped for the thunderstorm. After a two-hour delay, he made the 8-foot eagle putt. First-round leader Marco Dawson was second after a 66. Bernhard Langer, Gary Hallberg, Jeff Maggert and Gene Sauers were 13 under. Langer, coming off a record-breaking victory in the Senior British Open, and Maggert shot 67, and Hallberg and Sauers had 65s. Dawson and Maggert were in the 18th fairway when play stopped. When play resumed, Dawson put a 5iron pin high to set up an eagle, but Maggert tied for the lead at the time hit his approach shot in the water en route to a bogey. Two shots back to start the day, Perry was 3 under on the front nine and added birdies at Nos. 10 and 15 to pull into a tie for the lead. Fifth in the season-long points race, Perry has been one of the more consistent tour players, finishing no worse than 14th including four top-10s in his last six events. That includes a major win May 18 at the Regions Tradition. Garcia clings to 3-shot lead Associated PressCANTON, Ohio Its approaching show-time for Buffalo Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins. After dazzling teammates and fans during the first two weeks of training camp, the rookie receiver is awaiting the chance to kick off the preseason before a national TV audience against the New York Giants in the annual Hall of Fame game on Sunday night. Its not lost on Watkins that Andre Reed will be on hand at Fawcett Stadium, a day after the former Bills star receivers induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. I definitely want to go out there and put on a great show for him, Watkins said. And I want to get a win. That would just start the team up and build confidence for everybody. Watkins has shown glimpses of why the Bills regarded him so highly in the draft. Buffalo gambled by trading its 2015 first-round pick to Cleveland and moved up five spots to select the Clemson player at No. 4. Hes shown breakaway speed by making numerous deep catches along the sideline, eliciting huge cheers from the stands. Watkins became a YouTube and Twitter sensation after videos showed him stumbling and nearly falling before recovering to make a one-handed catch in the end zone. Despite a slim, 6-foot-1, 211-pound frame, hes proven fearless in making catches in traffic. That was apparent during a full-team drill on the second day of camp. Quarterback EJ Manuels pass was tipped at the line of scrimmage and fluttered high into the air. Watkins raced back to make a leaping grab amid three defenders and came down with the ball in a pile of players. He also got poked in the eye. There are two things I can do: I can wait for it to get picked off, or I can go make a play on it, Watkins said. My first reaction was the ball was in the air, go make a play on it. Center Eric Wood is among Bills veterans impressed by Watkins. At this point, it wasnt like shocking. I almost expected it, Wood said, referring to Watkins one-handed catch. He is exactly what youd hope for given what we gave up to get him and how we took him. Thats an encouraging step for a Manuel-led passing attack that lacked consistency and big-play ability during the quarterbacks rookie season last year and contributed to the Bills 6-10 finish. As a coach, you have expectations, but hes performed better than I wouldve expected, coach Doug Marrone said of Watkins. I think a lot of people are excited. Giants safety Stevie Brown is looking forward to a closer view of Watkins. He was definitely deserving to be the top receiver taken, Brown said. He can jump over you and then take it 20 yards more. Hes got the ability to make tough catches. If he catches the ball, I can never let up on getting after him. The Giants will unveil a new offensive style under new coordinator Ben McAdoo. Theyre introducing a quick-paced, nohuddle attack to help take the pressure off quarterback Eli Manning, who threw a career-worst 27 interceptions last season. I think we are going to put us right to the test and see how well we know the offense, know how well this thing can perform at a high level, receiver Victor Cruz said. Bills WR Watkins looks to shine in HOF game Associated PressCANTON, Ohio Linebacker Derrick Brooks opened the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony with a 24-minute speech which he called a thank-you letter. And defensive end Claude Humphrey followed by saying the 28-year wait to hear his named called was worth it. The ceremony kicked off with a pair of extremes on Saturday night. It began with Brooks, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers star, who was selected for induction in his first year of eligibility, and followed by the 70-year-old Humphrey, who retired after the 1981 season. Now they tell me I only had 10 minutes up here, but let me start off by telling you that Ive waited 30 years to get to this podium, so dont rush me guys, said Humphrey, a six-time Pro Bowl selection who split 13 seasons between the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles. No one was in a rush as the seven-member 2014 class was formally and for some, finally inducted. Rounding out the class are defensive end Michael Strahan, receiver Andre Reed, defensive back Aeneas Williams and Ray Guy, the first full-time punter to enter the Hall of Fame. Brooks, an 11-time Pro Bowl selection, paid tribute to family members, teammates and coaches, from his Pop Warner playing days to his 14 NFL seasons in Tampa Bay. He thanked his late mother for instilling in him humility. He referred to former Buccaneers coach Tony Dungy as his mentor. And Brooks thanked Dungys successor, Jon Gruden, for helping the Buccaneers believe they could be champions. It was under Gruden when the Bucs blossomed into Super Bowl winners during the 2002 season in which Brooks earned NFL Defensive Player of the Year honors. Brooks even thanked Buccaneers kicker Martin Gramatica for his right foot, because of the number of games Tampa Bay won by field goals. A persistent drizzle fell for much of the afternoon before finally letting up at about 4 p.m., about three hours before the start of the induction ceremony. Workers spent the final hour wiping down and drying chairs on the Fawcett Stadium field reserved for guests and dignitaries. As expected, there were numerous fans on hand wearing Bills jerseys in support of Reed. Officials actually moved the ceremony from the front steps of the Hall of Fame building to the stadium in 2002 to make room for the number of Bills fans that traveled to Canton for quarterback Jim Kellys induction. The ceremony has been held inside the stadium ever since. And it was Kelly who received a lengthy standing ovation when he was introduced among the Hall of Famers attending the ceremony. Kelly was strong enough to attend while he recuperates from chemotherapy and radiation treatments for sinus cancer. Even Kellys fellow Hall of Famers stood and clapped on stage. The applause lasted so long that Kelly attempted to urge fans to sit down. When that didnt work, he then approached ESPN broadcaster and master of ceremonies Chris Berman and gave him a big hug at the podium.

Dr. William DixonGUEST COLUMN Section CSUNDAY, AUGUST 3, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW This is the silly season in Citrus County. We are getting ready to have an election, and every election season people say and do really dumb things because they are betting that you the voter arent smart enough to figure it out. After covering politics in Florida for the past four decades, here are a few truisms Ive learned along the way. 1. A political lie is still a lie. 2. There are winners and losers in politics and in life. It may not always seem fair, but no one ever promised you that everything was going to be fair. 3. The person who keeps telling you they are the smartest usually isnt. 4. The politician who spends the most time pounding his chest and telling you that he never tells a lie usually has the longest list of mistruths starting with that one. 5. When a candidates supporters say nasty and awful things about an opponent, and the candidate does not completely disown the comments and apologize, that candidate is equally responsible for the attacks. Or just plain weak. 6. Repeating a dumb idea does not make it right. 7. Supporting a candidate who can only complain about what the incumbent has done and offers no original ideas for the future is like giving a hungry person a bowl of Raisin Bran with sour milk: It doesnt taste good going down and the result can be pretty disturbing. 8. A candidates background is a relevant measurement of what you can expect in the future. Voters simply have to decide if the candidate has learned from past mistakes or has a habit of repeating them. The candidate who tells you that he has not made any mistakes is lying and should be avoided at all costs. 9. Government taxes people and businesses and spends the money raised to provide services. People in Ten eternal truths about political candidates See WINDOW/ Page C4 Salvation for Citrus Memorial hospital (CMH) may be as close as the end of October. A spokesman for Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) assures me that unless local lawyers come up with some new problem, documents will be presented for final signatures by the time this column is published. HCA could possibly take over management as early as Oct. 31. None too soon, at that. CMH is essentially bankrupt. The employee pension fund is owed millions to restore it to a level that can pay the promised pensions. The physical plant is in need of renovations and modernization. Revenues from services are insufficient to meet expenses. Cash on hand is less than mandated by contract with the holders of CMH bonds. The CMH Foundation Board currently leases the hospital from the Citrus County Hospital Board (CCHB) and is responsible for oversight of the hospital. The two boards have been involved in a five-year dispute over hospital policies and financial matters. They have put aside most of their differences to facilitate the lease of the hospital to HCA. However, the Foundation Board has submitted a list of financial obligations that, if paid, would consume all the money from HCA and require the Hospital Board to raise taxes on county property owners this year. Some on the Foundation Board believe it ought not dissolve itself as agreed until current malpractice charges against the hospital run their course. The CCHB, responsible for oversight and tax support, believes the CMH charges should be pared down so as not to require a property tax increase this year. It wants the Foundation Board to dissolve itself when the transaction is completed, as promised. Both boards must realize that the benefits to Citrus County from leasing CMH to Hospital Corporation of America are so great that they overwhelm the concerns separating the two boards and potentially delaying the transaction. HCA, by improving management and by providing cash to improve facilities, plans to return CMH to world-class status. It will improve the quality of hospital services offered and Deal nearly done at CMH See DIXON/ Page C3 If all goes according to plan for global energy conglomerate Ambre Energy Ltd., coal mined from the Powder River Basin in Montana and Wyoming will still arrive in Boardman by train car. But instead of feeding the coal plant, it would be shipped to Asia, where an energy-hungry populace is reliant on coal as a cheap power source. This town in the Columbia Gorge is a real-life example of the gulf between Obamas grand strategy to reduce coal emissions and the reality behind that policy: As the U.S. reduces its own carbon pollution, it is exporting more of it abroad. Built in 1976, the Boardman Coal Plant burns about 3 million tons of coal each year. The Port of Morrow terminal would ship three times more nearly 9 million tons out of the country. Those extra 6 million tons of thermal coal will generate energy somewhere, its carbon emissions joining the same atmosphere. It just wont be on the U.S. side of the global pollution ledger. Over the past five years, as the U.S. has cut coal consumption by 195 million tons, about 20 percent of that coal has been shipped overseas, according to an analysis by The Associated Press Associated PressThe Boardman Coal Plant in Boardman, Ore., is scheduled to close in 2020. The end of coal in Boardman will help Oregonmeet the Obama administrations latest proposal to slash pollution blamed for global warming. If all goes according to plan for global energy conglomerate Ambre Energy, coal will still arrive in Boardman, but instead of feeding the plant, it would be shipped to Asia. NIGELDUARAANDDINACAPPIELLO Associated PressBOARDMAN, Ore.The largest power plant in Oregon, the Boardman Coal Plant, sat idle one day earlier this summer, cold steel in industry parlance, its dirty power no longer wanted on an electricity grid that is becoming greener. For two weeks in June, wind and hydroelectric dams were supplying enough electricity to Portland General Electrics 830,000 customers, most of whom live far away in Portland. With increasing amounts of power required to come from renewable sources, Boardman eventually wont be needed at all. But that doesnt mean coal here is dead. By 2020, coal will no longer be burned at the 38-year-old power plant, replaced by other sources that could include cleaner-burning natural gas. The end of coal here will help Oregon meet the Obama administrations latest proposal to slash the pollution blamed for global warming. The plan calls on the state to cut its power plant carbon dioxide emissions in half by 2030. Closing Boardman, which gets its coal from the Northern Rockies, will go a long way toward that goal. But 12 miles north, a port on the Columbia River could represent the regions coal future. See COAL/ Page C4

Page C2SUNDAY, AUGUST 3, 2014 Say no to road taxThe county commission recently voted to add a 1 percent sales tax to the November ballot. This additional money would be used for resurfacing local and neighborhood roads. In theory, this proposal has merit. However, if this initiative is passed, those earmarked funds can be diverted to other projects by a simple majority vote of the commission. Road resurfacing funds could be diverted to fund more boondoggles such as the Ottawa extension, Meadowcrest and Port Citrus. The majority of our current commissioners have not been good stewards of our tax dollars. Giving these tax-and-spend officials access to additional tax dollars would not be a wise decision. I strongly urge voters to vote against this additional tax.Bernie Leven Citrus SpringsTouched by honestyI want to express my sincere appreciation to Erika who works at Hardees in Homosassa. A few weeks ago, we had breakfast. When we left and got home, I realized that I had left my purse at the restaurant. I was terrified when I called Hardees to see if they had found my purse. Erika saidshe had found it. We immediately left to get it. Erika handedme my purse as I thanked her profusely. I attempted to give hera finders fee, but she refused. She just kept saying she was glad to be able to help me. Erika is a one-in-a-million person. She is also a very valuable employee who has selflessly demonstrated to be a person of high moral character. Erika, please accept my sincere gratitude for the most precious gift of honesty you have given me. Marianne Parker Homosassa Search the phrase the most powerful man in the world and what comes up are photos of grotesquely over-developed weightlifters; also Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin. Awfully ironic under present circumstances. Its a cant term TV news anchors use to describe U.S. presidents, enhancing their own self-importance as chroniclers of the great. But have two politicians ever looked less like demigods than presidents Obama and Putin? Things are in the saddle and ride mankind, Emerson wrote. The unspeakable tragedy in the Ukraine underscores that brute fact. However, its not an existential point Id like to make, but a political one. The American cult of the presidency has always had overtones of magical thinking. We imagine our presidents responsible for events over which they have little or no control. Technically, President Obama commands the worlds most powerful military establishment, for all the good its done anybody in Amsterdam or Malaysia. Often, it seems as if being the worlds lone superpower, to use another cant phrase, actually means that superpowers no longer exist. Not democratic ones, anyway. Americas military superiority appears to have relieved many citizens of the need to think coherently about foreign policy at all. Not that they ever did. The paradoxical situation in which President Obama finds himself has been correctly diagnosed by Kevin Drum. According to a recent Politico poll, fully two-thirds (67 percent) of Americans want U.S. military power used only to address immediate threats to national security. Just 22 percent think the U.S. has a moral duty to protect democracies around the world. Three quarters of American voters want out of Afghanistan, ASAP People who want less involvement in Syrias civil war outnumber those who want more by 42 to 15 percent. A strong plurality wants a smaller American role in Iraqs struggle against Islamic State militants a group too extreme for al-Qaida. More pointedly, just 17 percent think the U.S. should do more to deter Russian aggression in the Ukraine. Any wonder why Putin felt emboldened to arm drunken separatist militiamen with sophisticated antiaircraft missiles the rough equivalent of giving strategic bombers to the KKK? In short, Americans broadly agree with President Obamas policies. But they also trust Republicans more than Democrats on foreign policy by 39 to 32 percent. Bottom line, Drum writes, ... Americans prefer the actual foreign policy of Democrats, but they prefer the rhetorical foreign policy of Republicans. They want lots of bluster and chest-thumping, but without much in the way of serious action. Bluster and chest-thumping theyve been getting aplenty. You almost cant turn on the TV without seeing Sen. John McCain and his sidekick, Sen. Lindsey Graham. Last year Mother Jones listed 15 countries The Very Angry Senator has wanted to bomb, invade, or destabilize since about 2000. McCains become as predictable as a cartoon character. Had he gotten his way, the U.S. would currently have the proverbial boots on the ground in five Middle Eastern countries Libya, Syria, Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan along with Nigeria and North Korea. Oh, and the Ukraine too. The latest thinking in advanced GOP circles, see, is that Putins ill-fated adventurism was prompted not by Western indifference to border disputes in Russian-speaking areas of eastern Ukraine. Nor by domestic politics, although Putins nationalist posturing has driven his approval rating among Russians to 83 percent even higher than George W. Bushs numbers at the time of his Mission Accomplished aircraft carrier stunt. It definitely helps Putin to have a state-run news media whose staggering dishonesty makes Fox News look like the BBC. Writing in the Washington Post, former Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen lays down the GOP party line: Its purely Obamas fault. Putin saw that Obama did not have the stomach to bomb Syria and knew that he would face no real consequences for destabilizing Ukraine. Thiessen performs the remarkable trick of scolding the president for weakness while praising his U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power for her searing indictment of Russian brutality, dishonesty and incompetence. Quite forgotten, meanwhile, are all the paeans to the Russian leaders manly decisiveness emitted by name-brand Republicans. I think Putin has outperformed our president time and again on the world stage, Mitt Romney told NBC News last January. And I think most observers of the international political scene suggest that Russia has elevated itself in stature and America has been diminished. Fox News pundits have been virtually unanimous in describing Putin as a he-man action hero. Sarah Palin sounded as if shed like to get to know the Russian president a lot better. People look at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil, she said, and our president wears mom jeans and equivocates. Meanwhile, the most powerful men in the world appear defeated. Confronted with an act of mass murder whose brutality is exceeded only by its slackjawed idiocy, Obama looks careworn, exhausted; Putin, dead-eyed and unsure.

Negative campaigning deceives voters In the business world, a hostile takeover of a company is engineered by the secret purchase of the companys stock. In the political realm, negative campaigning secretly orchestrated through electioneering committees is akin to a hostile takeover of elected offices. While electioneering committees are legally permitted to collect and spend money on political ads, as long as they do not specifically support or oppose a candidate, they serve to hide the identity and intent of those behind the ads. Since winning his seat on the board of county commissioners in 2012, Commissioner Scott Adams has expressed disdain for past county commissioners and has made clear his desire to unseat the boards current members. Now, with the Republican county commissioner primary race in full swing, a South Florida electioneering committee called Save Citrus County has strangely appeared on the countys political landscape. Bankrolled to the tune of $50,000 by Charlie Strange, a longtime friend and business associate of Adams, the Save Citrus County political attack ads disparagingly and derisively target District 2 incumbent John JJ Kenney and District 4 candidate Winn Webb. Kenney suspects the attack ads, plus the write-in candidacy of Republican Joey White that precludes Democrat and non-party affiliated voters from otherwise participating in his primary race for county commissioner, have Adams fingerprints all over them. Similarly Webb, who resigned from the board of county commissioners in 2012 in an unsuccessful bid for Citrus County Sheriff, contends that Strange and Adams are secretly orchestrating the negative campaign to advance a hostile takeover of county government. Despite the silence of Strange and denials by Adams, fodder for the suspicions of Kenney and Webb are found in Adams successful run for the District 5 seat in 2012. Just as now, a South Florida electioneering committee called Floridians for Conservative Values strangely appeared on the countys political landscape. Just as now, records show that Stranges $10,000 donation to Floridians for Conservative values supported a direct mail campaign disparaging Charles Poliseno, who was Adams chief primary rival. Poliseno blamed Adams for the negative attacks against him; however, Adams, just as now, denied he had anything to do with it. Stranges pattern of behavior of hiding behind an electioneering committees mudslinging to benefit his political desires dirties the electoral process by making personal attacks rather than issues the center of the campaign dialogue. Also, it shows a lack of respect for the electorate by attempting to influence voters through deception and deceit. Despite the longtime friendship and business association of Strange and Adams, as well as the same electioneering committee ploy of the past two election cycles that has directly or indirectly benefited Adams, both Strange and Adams hide behind their denials. Given this pattern of deceit and denial, two questions about the future health of our countys electoral process are raised for the electorates consideration. Should this negative electoral behavior pattern be rewarded? Are the denials of Strange and Adams plausible? As voters, you will be the judge.

Still waiting on roads to be fixedSo this is your way to weasel out of your duties to the people who elected you, and you are supposed to represent. It would have to be proven to all of us in this situation that it works and has ever worked anywhere. The most ridiculous part of this so-called program is the non-refundable $250. Where does that go? Second place goes to use of the word improvement with nothing said about how good it will be and how long that improvement will last. As I have pointed out in the past, a couple of shovelfuls of blacktop is not even be close to fixing the two-block stretch right in front of my house. I would like to point out the fact that I have almost begged you and (the) local paper to come look. But I guess you are too busy looking for more ways to spend dollars on stupid things like swimming pools, sidewalks to nowhere (U.S. 19 from Crystal River to defunct mall), now going to do it again on Halls River Road. Please, I beg you, dont try to make us think that no taxpayers in (the) county will be affected. You must understand that we are not as dumb as you think. I ask you again, How do I get back all the fuel tax money that you spend everywhere except where those tax dollars should go? Oh, silly me! I forgot to mention the $3 million edifice that you just bought. William R. Ames HomosassaPredicting more taxesI can predict the future. That is what I said at yesterdays (July 22) BOCC meeting. Back when literally hundreds packed the auditorium and many spoke against the fire tax, I said that these people were wasting their time because the commissioners were determined to nail us with the fire tax no matter what citizens said. As predicted, the fire tax passed, and if one looked at the facial expressions of the commissioners, some looked detached as if input from the public didnt matter. It didnt. Some time ago, I spoke at the BOCC against their approval of the so-called civility ordinance, in which it would be deemed wrong to express opinions in a way that certain people might deem uncivil. I spoke against this as did every other citizen who spoke and again, the looks on the faces of certain commissioners left no doubt that we citizens were spitting into the wind and we were wasting their time that this was going to be passed no matter the citizens input. Predictably, the measure passed despite the public input. Big surprise, eh? When I spoke against the referendum to place the 1-percent sales tax hike on the ballot yesterday at the BOCC meeting, I pointed out that there were many ways the current spending could be trimmed and that more taxes were unnecessary. I also told the board that I predicted that they would pass this referendum no matter what the citizens wanted and that it was a done deal already. Others spoke against the tax increase, while some were in favor. I also mentioned that we voters have long memories and if they wanted to keep their jobs, they had better start to listen to the citizens; the taxpayers who put them into those offices and who could remove them at the next election. Prior to calling the vote on this measure, Commissioner Joe Meek felt the need to talk for about 10 minutes about why this tax increase was needed and why there was no place where expenses could be cut. It almost sounded like a rebuttal to the points I had made in my comments, although this was not actually stated. As predicted, the measure passed. It appears that anytime a tax increase or a new tax is proposed, it is going to be passed and we citizens of Citrus County are on the hook for more taxes, more spending, more consultants to study more consultants, more wasted money on impossible pie in the sky dreams like an industrial Port Citrus and the list could go on and on. I am predicting that some incumbents will need to buy packing boxes in this election and the next. The voters will remember and those who constantly pick the pockets of the taxpayers to waste more and more of our tax dollars will be voted out. So far, I am 100 percent on my predictions on tax hikes from this board. If only it were this easy to predict the winning lottery numbers.Harry Cooper HernandoMore taxes for road repairsWhy is it that at every level of government, politicians think we can get by on less and less of our income while they need more and more of it? Why isnt road maintenance a part of Citrus Countys annual budget? It shouldnt come as a surprise to our commissioners that work is needed on the roads: this is an ongoing necessity, and if money hasnt already been allocated for it, they are irresponsible.Charlene Dawe Inverness work diligently to regain the support of local physicians. Doing so will increase referrals and attract many prospective patients currently leaving the county for health care. As the hospitals reputation improves, residents from surrounding counties will, as they have in the recent past, seek hospital services in Citrus. As the hospital turnaround proceeds, hundreds of new jobs will be created in health care, construction and retail sales. New physician practices will open and provide additional employment. Retirees will be attracted to the county by the availability of high-quality health care services. Real estate sales and home prices should improve. County tax receipts will grow by many millions annually. These benefits make disputes over any amount of money available from the lease irrelevant. Likewise irrelevant to property owners is a onetime small increase in the millage rate that may be requested by the CCHB to cover what Citrus Memorial says it needs in order to complete the deal. The slight increase in property taxes for one year will pay for itself 10 times over as future tax receipts flow to the county directly from HCA and indirectly from related growth in local businesses. The CCHB should agree to using receipts from HCA to pay off the expenses the hospital claims, even if this requires using all the unencumbered cash and asking for additional cash one time from taxpayers. A scheduled audit will likely reveal cash remaining after bills have been paid. This cash can be used to fund the new charitable health care trust created by both boards. The Foundation Board must dissolve itself, as promised, after its financial responsibilities have been fulfilled. That board will no longer be necessary and need not burden taxpayers with additional legal and administrative expenses. No further barriers should be erected by the boards or their lawyers to the completion of this transaction so beneficial to the community at large.William Dixon is a graduate of Columbia University, New York Medical College and the USF College of Business Administration.

Nineteenth Annual Cowboy boots would do it every time The environment we are required to occupy is often not of our own choosing. In September 1951, I began serving a sentence in the Florida public school system. The first seven years were to be served at the Lacoochee Elementary School. The school buildings, school yard and playground were not so bad. The other students were nice enough. Even some of the teachers were all right. But there was also the warden, also known as the principal: Agatha Andrews. Mrs. Andrews was the disciplinarian. No doubt she was a good person on the outside, but when it is your job to maintain law and order among 200-plus inmates, students ranging from 6 to 12 years in age, youve got to be tough. Believe me, she was tough. Punishment was swift. There was no appeals court. She was judge, jury and executioner. Depending upon the offense, you might be placed in solitary confinement, which meant standing by a tree during recess. You werent allowed to play. You had to remain within arms length of one of the pine trees in the schoolyard at all times. I learned to make some marvelous things from the pine needles. She also had the authority to administer corporal punishment, For those offenses she considered to be the most significant crimes, she could and would swing the board. As I suppose it is in most prisons, the rumors about punishment were worse than the reality. It was said that Mrs. Andrews board was a two-by-four with railroad spikes embedded in it. That wasnt true. I personally found out that it was nothing more than a simple pingpong paddle, but she made it feel like a two-by-four with railroad spikes embedded in it. I was only subjected to the paddle once. Mrs. Andrews didnt allow running in the halls. In her book, that was the biggie. Telling little boys not to run in the hall was issuing a challenge for them to do precisely that. There are some things that a boy has to do, and when I was 9 years old, running in the hall was one of em. I accepted the challenge, but I wasnt a total fool. I knew not to run when there was a likelihood that Id be caught. One morning, the urge to run hit me. I waited for her to go back into her office, and when she was out of sight, I began running. What I didnt think about was that I was wearing cowboy boots. You can imagine the noise generated by a pair of boots clomping down the wooden-floored hallway. Mrs. Andrews came out of her office with fire in her eyes, flagged me down, and quickly administered justice. Years later, while working in the Capitol, I found myself sharing a conversation with a certain member of the state House of Representatives, another fellow who had also grown up in Lacoochee, someone who knew Principal Andrews even better than I did: He was her son. We began reminiscing about our days at Lacoochee Elementary School. I laughingly told him about his mother beating my behind for running in the hall. He asked how she caught me and I responded, Cowboy boots. He replied, Boots would do it every time. Thats how she caught me, too!Fred Brannen, an Inverness resident, has been a Chronicle columnist since 1988 and is the author of the novel At the Bottom of Biscayne Bay.

our country get mad when things get out of balance or the politicians believe that its their money. 10. The voters are always right. When all is said and done, voters get the public officials that the majority wants. Collectively, we start getting mad at them the day after they are elected. And with all of the systemic faults we have in America, we still have the best form of government on the planet.Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle. of Energy Department data. That proportion is expected to get larger as the U.S. continues to clean up its power plants, boost energy efficiency and move to more pollutionfree sources of energy such as wind and solar. For the Northwest, proposed coal terminals would export more than 100 million tons of coal to Asia per year, far exceeding the total consumption for all plants that feed coal-fired power to the region, including Oregon, and doubling U.S. exports. If were trying to address carbon and were creating a whole new export industry, I think that is problematic, said Citizens Utility Board of Oregon executive director Bob Jenks. Theres a fundamental disconnect between trying to reduce carbon emissions and creating new industries around coal. No one knows exactly how much pollution the U.S. is sending abroad, or its overall effect on global greenhouse gas emissions. Thats because no one, including the Obama administration, has calculated it. Despite requests from Oregons Democratic Gov. John Kitzhaber to evaluate the full environmental consequences of the export terminal proposed here, including the emissions released in Asia from U.S. coal, the Obama administration has decided to analyze only the carbon released in the U.S. Boardman presents an opportunity for coal export thats nearly unmatched on the West Coast. The port provides easy access to the Columbia River, which feeds Pacific Ocean shipping channels. Its just a couple miles from a major interstate highway, and rail lines connect the region to valuable coal in the northern Rockies. Coal from the Powder River Basin is a special breed. Wetter than Appalachian coal, it also has a lower sulfur content when it burns. That means its cleaner, said plant manager Dave Rodgers. Of primary concern are its carbon emissions of about 3.6 million tons per year, an amount that could be cut by half if the plant starts burning natural gas. The plant still spat out nearly 14,000 tons of sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere in 2013, which places it among the top 70 sulfur dioxide-polluting plants in the country and by far the worst in Oregon. Meanwhile, the coal exported will result in nearly 51 million tons of emissions. Still, it provides more than 130 well-paying jobs in the states oft-neglected eastern half. That base of disposable income supports secondary businesses, Port of Morrow general manager Gary Neal said, propping up another level of jobs. The plants closure will erode that base. Good jobs here, going away because people on the west side (of the state) dont understand what it means to us here, Neal said. The port is expected to generate several hundred jobs during the construction of the coal terminal and add about 30 port workers permanently. The plant was slated to close in 2040, but installing necessary upgrades to comply with environmental regulations would have cost about $600 million. The plants owner, Portland General Electric, instead agreed to a sulfur-mitigation measure in lieu of installing a more permanent solution and set the 2020 closure date. Exporting coal faces opposition from environmental groups, local tribes and Kitzhaber. The terminal was supposed to begin exports in 2012, but repeated state permitting requests have tied up the project. Opponents of the project believe the port will never be built. This is not a good investment, said Power Past Coal campaign director Beth Doglio, and we are not gonna make it easy for them. That is the attitude that Rodgers, the plant manager, expects. He stood on the plants roof, near the coal plants flue-gas stack, the tallest structure for miles in the bare grassland. A hard wind pushed from the north and occasional gusts rocked his hardhat. A former Navy nuclear submarine technician, he switched in the 1990s from rods and reactors to coal. Today, he is protective of his plant and zealous about its power. Its not a religious thing, but theres something about it that almost feels like that, Rodgers said. Youre providing cheap power to people that need it. Thats about as good a thing as you can do. A floor below him, the plant kicked to life. Buzzing heaters warmed air destined for the vats where black dust would soon tumble from crushers. Hundreds of miles away, coal-laden train cars began their trip west to the plant and this regions heart was beating for another season.

Section DSUNDAY, AUGUST 3, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Bruce WilliamsSMART MONEY DEAR BRUCE: Im 58 years old with no set date for retirement. My former employer sent me a lump-sum distribution of $13,000. Should I ride with the amount until retirement or roll it over into an IRA? Warren DEAR WARREN: You havent mentioned if you need the $13,000. If that is not the case, then by all means I would certainly consider rolling it over. Thats because you would have roughly 12 years that the $13,000 can grow without any income tax being assessed against you, which is a considerable savings. If, in fact, you want the money, thats a different matter, and its entirely possible you will have to pay a rather steep assessment in terms of any income tax that may be due. But if these retirement funds have up until now incurred no tax liability, I would continue with that for the next 12 years. DEAR BRUCE: I have a question about a neighbors tree that not only hangs way over our property line but is killing my cherry tree. He loves this tree, and he actually had a guy come trim his side but not mine. Its going to cost us about $600 to $1,000 to have it trimmed and hauled away. Are we the ones who have to pay to have this taken care of, or is it our neighbors responsibility to pay for it? C.F. DEAR C.F.: Some people just have no sense of responsibility, but your neighbor does have reasonability for any of the tree that comes over on your property. The problem is he either has to agree to pay or you have to sue him. It is your job to make him understand and accept that reasonability. The troublesome part is youll probably have to spend the money to have the trimming done and hauled away, although $600 to $1,000 seems pretty heavy. Contact your neighbor, What to do with a lump-sum distribution See MONEY/ Page D4 STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleDr. Aparna Chunduri has been appointed the new chief of staff at Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center. Certified in anesthesiology, Dr. Chunduri has been on staff with Seven Rivers since 2007 and will serve a two-year term in her new position. MEGANCARELLA For the ChronicleAs a child in India, Aparna Chunduri became fascinated with the doctors who cared for her family. She decided that she, too, wanted to be part of a profession that took care of people.I didnt realize how much hard work was entailed, she said. But I used that fascination to carry me through medical school. After medical school and early training in India as an anesthesiologist, Chunduri came to the U.S. to continue her studies and her practice of medicine. She was awarded a fellowship in pediatrics at Miami Childrens Hospital and worked for five years as a resident, then staff anesthesiologist at hospitals in South Florida. She relocated with her family to Citrus County to join the medical staff at Crystal River Anesthesia and Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center in 2007. Chunduris curiosity about medicine and dedication to patients extends to the staff and services at Seven Rivers, where she was recently appointed chief of staff for a two-year term. She has also served as chief of anesthesia and chief of surgery for the hospital. The chief of staff represents the physician community to hospital administration, she said. Its a way to help both doctors and the hospital coordinate patient care. Understanding how the hospital works helps me to provide input into making things better for our patients. A city girl at heart, Chunduri wasnt sure what to expect when the opportunity to move to Citrus County presented itself. She quickly came to see the advantages of small-town living. I really enjoy the atmosphere here, both in the county and at the hospital. Theres a coziness you dont find in the city, she said. The hospital is smaller, so you get to know each and everybody you work with. If you need something, people are right there to help. Same goes with the community. I see patients out and about. Its so nice to see them after theyve been sick. Chunduri grew up in a musical family. My father was a violinist, she said. My family was always going to concerts and either listening to or playing music. So, its no surprise that in her spare time, she relaxes with music. She plays two Indian string instruments the veena and the bulbul and enjoys getting together for jam sessions with friends. Board certified in anesthesiology, Chunduri earned her medical degree from the University of Health Sciences, Osmania Medical College, Hyderabad, India. She completed an internship in preliminary surgery at Guthrie/Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, Pennsylvania, and a residency in anesthesia at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. In 2010 at the invitation of the U.S. ambassador, Chunduri traveled to Belize to participate in health clinics in rural areas. She also conducts lectures on current anesthesiology techniques to staff at community hospitals and health clinics during her trips home to India. MEET THE NEW CHIEF Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO Dustin Moskovitz is plotting an escape from email. The 30-year-old entrepreneur has learned a lot about communication since he teamed up with his college roommate Mark Zuckerberg to create Facebook a decade ago, and that knowledge is fueling an audacious attempt to change the way people connect at work, where the incessant drumbeat of email has become an excruciating annoyance. Moskovitz is trying to turn that chronic headache into an afterthought with Asana, a San Francisco startup he runs with former Facebook and Google product manager, Justin Rosenstein. Asana peddles software that combines the elements of a communal notebook, social network, instant messaging application and online calendar to enable teams of employees to share information and do most of their jobs without relying on email. We are trying to make all the soul-sucking work that comes with email go away, Rosenstein says as Moskovitz nods sitting across from him in a former brewery that serves as Asanas headquarters. This came out of a deep, heartfelt pain that Dustin and I were experiencing, along with just about everyone around us.

SCORE startup basics are not unlike common core educational programs. They are suggested for all new ventures because they enhance successful beginnings and outcomes. A new business startup requires many considerations, but there are certain core practices that can validate the next go-ahead step in the startup phase. Startup core basics Core principal No. 1: A startup consideration must ask: Is there a market, demand or need clearly demonstrated for the contemplated product or service? Core principal No. 2: What evidence-based facts demonstrate the consumer or business need for the new or improved product or service? Core principal No. 3: Ask yourself: Are you ready to own a business or grow the one you now own? This question requires a level of personal reflection regarding your motivation. Markets and demand Marketing professionals look at and sort demographics into many segments. Age, gender, income, education, geographical location, religious affiliations, political interests represent some of the basic segments. Marketers will also attempt to forecast the potential for financial success of a new venture. Here is an easy-tounderstand example of an obvious market predominate in Citrus County the senior adult population. Census reports estimate Citrus County claims approximately 140,000 residents. Of that number, almost 44,000 are age 65 or older. This fact, with targeted research, will lead to the evidence this market segment contains business opportunities. Segment opportunities What facts and evidence reveal senior segment needs? Start with media advertising. Who advertises: medical and health care services, housing and related services and volunteer opportunities. Thats what seniors need and like. Markets to serve in Citrus: Medical Services, in virtually any specialty, new/existing housing, home repairs. maintenance and remodeling, independent to assisted living facilities, veterans, legal, accounting and estate, wills and investment planning services. There is substantial competition from exiting businesses, yet there is always room for creative and original thinking to discover other opportunities. Are you ready? The big question to ask yourself is Am I ready? SCORE business mentors will help you examine your background, experience and desire to be in business. What do you bring to a market with respect to your work or professional training experience? Are you a carpenter? If so, you can enter the remodeling business, build decks, room additions, etc. If you are an endocrinologist, Citrus County has a huge population of aging adults susceptible to diabetes. The newly formed nonprofit organization known as the Memory Enhancement Center of America (MECA) in Citrus County was organized to help those among us with the potential for cognitive impairment, dementia and Alzheimers. Besides training, experience, education and motivation, other disciplines help support new startups. Education will play a significant role in ones success in business. Importance of education Success today requires some level of education, along with training and onthe-job work experience. The College of Central Florida and the Withlacoochee Training Institute offer the educational or academic aspects of trades and professions. Are you ready on a personal level with respect to motivation as the internal review that will test your final Am I ready? Nothing is wrong with wanting to get ahead financially, as long as you are willing to make the personal sacrifice required. Business success is fueled by money in terms of profits. Profits are supposed to be available to sustain and grow a business, but also reward the entrepreneur for risk and hard work.

an email haven. This year, each worker using a business email account will send and receive a daily average of 121 mail messages, a 15 percent increase from 105 per day in 2011, according to The Radicati Group, which tracks email usage. In contrast, consumers have been weaning themselves from electronic inboxes and increasingly turning to digital alternatives such as Facebook, Twitter and mobile messaging. More email translates to less productivity as workers spend more time weeding their inboxes and puzzling over convoluted exchanges among a hodgepodge of colleagues and managers scattered in various offices or sometimes just a cubicles away. To exacerbate matters, vital pieces of business information are often corralled in a workers inbox instead of in a database that can be searched by anyone working on the same project. If companies set up communications channels that worked more like social networks, the amount of time workers could devote to other things would increase by about 8 percent each week, according to estimates from a study by the McKinsey Global Institute. Another 6 percent of the workweek would be freed up if the shift away from email could unlock more of the so-called dark matter hidden in individual inboxes, McKinsey estimates. These are the problems Asana is trying to solve. Its bare-bones system, free to use for teams of up to 15 workers, is set up so information can be easily seen by anyone authorized by the company. Asana hopes to make money by selling subscriptions to more sophisticated versions of its software that can accommodate larger groups of workers. Moskovitz began working on what would turn into an early prototype for Asana while he was still at Facebook in late 2007. He had become frustrated with emails shortcomings and set out to build a better alternative for managing Facebooks projects. Before long, he was spending all his time figuring out how to escape email instead of managing Facebooks engineers. A lot of people thought I was crazy, but from my perspective it was clearly the smartest thing that I could do to make (Facebook) better, Moskovitz recalls. He finally decided to exit Facebook in late 2008 to start Asana, leaving behind a prototype that Facebook still relies on to manage its projects instead of email. Moskovitz remains one of Facebooks major shareholders with stock worth about $7 billion, affording him the luxury to gamble on a startup that may be fighting a Sisyphean battle. I am not sure what anyone thinks they will be accomplishing by getting rid of email, say Sara Radicati, editor of the Radicati Group. If we didnt have email, people would be spending all their time on the phone and other channels of communication. Is that really any better? While the Radicati Group foresees consumer email usage continuing to wane during the next four years, the firm predicts the volume of business email will rise another 16 percent by 2018 to an average of 140 daily emails sent and received by each user. Email cant be killed completely because its the lowest common denominator in business, concedes Stewart Butterfield, who has been trying to sell companies on the merits of another alternative form of corporate communication called Slack. Like Moskovitz, Butterfield is better known for his involvement at another popular technology service: he co-founded Flickr, a photosharing site bought by Yahoo Inc. nine years ago. Without providing specifics, Asana says millions of workers are using its system, primarily the free version. In many cases, Asana customers say they have reduced email usage by as much as 80 percent, according to Rosenstein. We are really reaching peak email, Rosenstein says. Our customers keep asking: Can you replace more and more of my email? Rapidly growing startups such as Airbnb, Uber, Pinterest, Dropbox embraced Asanas taskmanagement system early in their corporate lives in hopes of avoiding email addiction as they mature. And Asana isnt alone in its quest to eradicate email. Other online services, built especially for business purposes by companies such as Jive Software and Microsofts Yammer, are on a similar mission. Despite these efforts, email remains pervasive. For instance, Pinterest product manager Michael Yamartino says he still sifts through 200 to 300 emails each day, with 70 percent of the traffic coming from co-workers. Even after internal meetings, Pinterest still relies on mass emails to let everyone know what is going on. Asana is better for tracking tasks, but email still has an important place, Yamartino says. Two of Asanas own employees, Emily Kramer and Jim Renaud, wanted to prove its possible to survive without email so they vowed to avoid checking their company and personal inboxes all April. It was the longest stretch that Kramer, 30, had gone without checking her email since she was in the sixth grade when she opened her first account on AOL. Renaud, 39, hadnt lived without email since he enrolled in college 20 years ago. Kramer stayed out of her email, even though she kept fretting about what she might miss at work and had to deal with complaints from friends about the inconvenience of finding other ways to keep her in the loop about a bachelorette party they were planning. She also found herself dealing with lengthier mobile messages that read like email. A co-worker had told me, I think it would be easier to go without oxygen than email, Kramer says. I dont think thats true any longer. Renaud didnt avoid email the entire month. Once, he needed to go into his Asana account to check on an issue affecting the companys customers. On another day, Renaud couldnt resist opening his personal email to retrieve a $100 rebate on some tires that he bought for his car. When he clicked on an email link confirming the rebate, he was informed it would take six to eight weeks to get his money. I have learned that I dont need to check my email all the time, Renaud says.D4SUNDAY, AUGUST3, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEBUSINESS 000IW8B Call (352) 563-5592 Deadline August 22, 2014 explain the situation and what his responsibilities are. He may accept them. Its worth a shot. DEAR BRUCE: My dad passed away in 2011 and his will named my brother executor. So far, as a beneficiary of my dads will and estate, I have not seen any list of my fathers assets and/or debts. He had a house valued at $116,000 to $220,000 at the time of his death. H.K. DEAR H.K.: Your brother, as executor, has legal responsibilities he must fulfill. He has to take the will and file it with the probate court of the county where your dad passed away. Its not an expensive process, although, given the amounts involved, you should hire an attorney not on a percentage basis, but on an hourly basis. You mentioned you are a beneficiary of your dads will, but you didnt mention your other siblings, or your brother, for that matter. If you are the entire beneficiary, then everything after his debts have been met goes to you. DEAR BRUCE: As a result of being imprisoned last year, a relative has been unable to pay off credit card debt. In this time, despite the situation being explained to the credit card companies, the amount has increased enormously because of ongoing interest and late fees. Also, intent to serve notice by a law enforcement agency was sent to the mailing address. Do you think it would be possible or in his best interest to begin bankruptcy proceedings from prison? Reader DEAR READER: Whether or not your relative should pursue bankruptcy depends on the amounts involved and whether the bankruptcy court will allow him to file. Although, given the circumstances, I think he should probably be able to do so. You didnt mention how long he will be incarcerated. The more time that passes, the greater the extra charges are going to be. Its entirely possible that he will never be able to make the payments, and that is why bankruptcy should be explored.Send questions to bruce@bruce williams.com.

MONEYContinued from Page D1 EMAILContinued from Page D1 Special to the ChronicleSeven Rivers Regional Medical Center has named licensed practical nurse Susan Brooks as 2013 Employee of the Year. This award is the highest honor bestowed on a hospital employee each year. Brooks was chosen from among 460 employees for the honor. Health care requires a special blend of great people skills, tireless energy and the ability to work well under pressure, said Joyce Brancato, chief executive officer. People who work in health care share the common desire to help others and make a difference in peoples lives. Its a pleasure to recognize our employees for their dedication to our patients and to providing outstanding care. Employees are nominated for the award by their hospital peers based on their commitment to patient care, their professionalism and their contributions on the job. Brooks has worked for Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center since July 1998. She began her nursing career 40 years ago, working the night shift in a labor and delivery unit. Later, she became a school nurse. Now she cares for medical and surgical patients on the third floor of the hospital. When questions arise, it is Brooks clinical expertise and bedside experience that make her a favorite resource for students, co-workers and leadership. From the time I was 6 years old, I knew I wanted to be a nurse. My grandmother was a nurse in England. And now, much of my family works in health care. They are nurses, doctors and administrators, said Brooks. Our calling in life is to serve others. Weve chosen health care as our way to do that. Brooks manager knows why she was selected as employee of the year. She always goes the extra mile to help others without being asked; she is so in-tune with her work environment and the needs of her co-workers, said Carol DeFalco, nurse manager.

BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST3, 2014 D5 000IPTL BUSINESS DIGEST Dr. Cheryl McFarlandBryantchiropractor. Associated PressSEATTLE Almost 40 percent of homes sold for above list price between April and June in King and Snohomish counties. Bidding wars are pushing up home prices in many, but not all, Seattle-area neighborhoods, with almost 40 percent of homes sold for above list price between April and June in King and Snohomish counties. In the second quarter, the Seattle areas housing market ranked sixth nationally for the share of homes sold above list, The Seattle Timesreported in Saturdays newspaper (www.seattletimes.com). That puts Seattle behind only five places in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. Bidding wars are common in certain neighborhoods where there are few well-located and well-maintained homes for sale, real-estate brokerage Redfin says. There is an intensity in Seattle thats shared with other high-tech, high-growth cities, said Nela Richardson, chief economist at Redfin. Bellevue, Issaquah, Newcastle and Kenmore were the only cities in the region where more than half the single-family homes that sold went for above list price. In Seattle, nearly half the homes sold did. For instance, in Bellevues Mockingbird Hill neighborhood, a fourbedroom home near top-ranked Newport High School drew four bids and sold in June for $480,000, or $20,000 over list price. The inventory in this neighborhood is among the tightest: Only nine homes were for sale there in the second quarter, and the six that sold all went for above list price. Even in Kenmore, traditionally an affordable middle-class haven, a remodeled three-bedroom rambler attracted seven offers and sold in June for $16,000 over the $419,000 list price. The winning bidder paid cash. Sellers fan the flames of competition by listing homes at prices on the lower end of a perceived range, setting a deadline to review multiple offers, and encouraging buyers to waive contingencies. What is so heartbreaking is that everyones got fabulous offers, Seattle real-estate broker Presha Sparling said. If there werent competing offers that werent even more fabulous, youd want to accept all of these. The springs frenzied market and double-digit appreciation reminds them of the housing bubble years in 2006 and 2007, agents said. Its likely that sellers will continue trying to stoke bidding wars but they warn buyers may withdraw from the market, brokers said. Buyers are tired of getting beat up, said Barbara Shikiar, managing broker of Windermeres Sand Point office. Theyre tired of spending $500 to $600 (on pre-inspections) and not having a house. The hardest part is the emotional energy people have invested, she said. They want their nest, and they cant get it, Shikiar said.

Gardeners like perennial plants that will last for many years in the garden, have a long bloom season and grow well without much maintenance. Purple coneflower is one of nine species of perennial Echinacea native to the United States which occur naturally nowhere else in the world. It is readily available at retail garden centers. Coneflowers are frost-hardy, as they go dormant and lose their leaves in winter. However, they cannot survive the summer heat south of Central Floridas heat zone 10. Purple coneflower, Echinacea purpurea, thrives in full sun further north in its normal cold zones 7 to 10. In Central Floridas cold zones 8b (basically north of the Withalacoochee River) and Zone 9a (south of it), plant Echinacea in part afternoon shade under a high tree canopy. Citrus, Levy and Marion counties are within Echinaceas preferred cold zone. Understanding the plants needs and then preparing a suitable spot in the garden is important before trying to grow any plant outside its natural habitat. High, filtered shade will help prevent sun scorch and leaf wilt on scorching afternoons and keep the soil a little cooler. Purple coneflower prefers humus-rich but well-drained soil. In sandy soils it may be necessary to add organic, vegetable, finely milled mulch or finished compost to the planting bed. Coneflowers prefer calcareous conditions slightly alkaline and containing lime. Years ago, coneflowers were planted in the parking lot island at Dunnellon Public Library. Apart from annual mulching with pine needles, these plants have had minimal care or maintenance. Part of their thriving success is due to the base limerock beneath the garden soil. The shade under the mature trees keeps the coneflowers cooler all summer. The best feature of Echinacea is its showy flowers from June to October. Deadheading snipping off spent flower heads encourages more flowering while keeping the garden tidy. In the composite or Aster family, coneflowers have purple, petal-like ray flowers surrounding a raised center disk of brownish-purple disk flowers. Flowers are up to 4 inches wide atop 2to 3-foottall stems. Purple coneflower produces nectar and pollen for many bees and butterflies, including Floridas state butterfly, the pollen-gathering zebra longwing. There are a few, sparse, alternate leaves on the flower stalks. Most of the leaves are clustered in a basal rosette close to the ground. Leaves are 3 to 6 inches long and lanceshaped with toothed edges. The dark green leaves are coarse in texture. Seeds are tiny achenes borne in the disk flowers. Finches wintering locally find Echinacea seeds irresistible. Seeds need at least a month in continuously cold conditions below 40 degrees to stratify in winter before they can sprout after frost is over in spring. In mild Central Florida, coneflowers seeds rarely sprout. Propagation here could be by division while dormant in winter. Most gardeners buy seed-grown plants from more northern growers. Packaged Echinacea seeds may be already moist-stratified and ready to sprout. Echinacea makesa good addition to any lowmaintenance perennial garden. Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant. Semi-retired, she grows thousands of native plants. Visitors are welcome to her Dunnellon, Marion County, garden.

Associated PressMIAMI A federal judge has slammed Miami-Dade County for refusing to delay demolition of a soldiers home while he trained in California for deployment to the Middle East. The Miami Heraldreported the house was razed in 2011 after U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Jesus Jimenez did not heed numerous county requests to fix building code violations. Jimenez had repeatedly asked for extensions to fix the problems while he training or on a mission. At one point his commanding military officer also weighed in, asking to officials to stay the hearing 90 days while Jimenez was conducting training on how to defuse improvised explosive devices in Iraq. U.S. Judge Robert Scola Jr. sided with the father of four last week, scheduling a September trial to decide what the county owes Jimenez. But he urged both sides to first attempt a settlement. At issue is a World War II-era law, reinstated in 2003, that allows for the temporary suspension of legal or administrative proceedings that could affect active duty military members civil rights. While it is possible that the Jimenezes employed dilatory tactics to avoid remedying the violations on their property and complying with the applicable building ordinances, Scola wrote, their behavior does not negate the (countys) failure to stay the proceedings.... The county argued that Jimenez was in the Army Reserves when it issued the violations. But Scola ruled that since Jimenez was on active duty when he requested the stay, he should have been protected. County officials declined to discuss the case with the Herald, citing the ongoing litigation. But in court filings, MiamiDade representatives said theyd given Jimenez more than enough time to fix the violations between deployments. The family rented seven rooms in two houses without permission. Among the problems with their home that sparked the initial code enforcement citations: deteriorating porch beams and a deteriorated roof, as well as a damaged door and an uncovered electrical junction box. Jimenez says he tried to fix the initial problems but didnt have the money to take out the necessary construction permits. Then he was sent to a Wisconsin training base and was fined for failing to complete the work. Meanwhile, inspectors reviewed the house more closely and ordered more improvements.

Tweet Tweet Tweet Follow the Chronicle on www.twitter.com/ citruschroniclenews as it happens right at your finger tips Associated PressPARIS Rats are on the rampage in the elegant garden of the Louvre Museum, so bold they romp on the grass in broad daylight, defying death threats from sanitation workers and scaring tourists. The hot weather in Paris has brought many picnicking visitors to the garden, whose garbage is a feast for the rats. And theyre getting help from animal lovers who dig up poison and feed them water. Maybe its the Ratatouille effect, with the beloved French rat Remy from Disneys computer animated film helping real-life rats win Parisian hearts. The vermin are finding a lifeline from people who dont want us to kill animals, said Jean-Claude Ndzana Ekani, a museum employee who was working Tuesday with technicians from an extermination company, The lush area which extends into the Tuileries Gardens gives a rat plenty of places to hide, but still the critters scamper about openly, unfazed by people strolling about. The Louvre, which owns the garden, has been trying to combat the rat problem for months, but clearly hasnt succeeded. In May, sanitation officials and exterminators decided to embark on an all-out offensive: A decision was made to do a shock operation, Ndzana Ekani said. Workers, acting methodically, were seen Tuesday pouring poison down the rat holes. It hasnt helped. I see about 10 or 15 (rats) every day, said Traore Massamba, 25, a maintenance worker. There are a lot of people who come here to picnic and they leave their leftovers, so I think that attracts them. Dutch tourist Evelyne Delemarre, 31, let out a scream after seeing a rat scamper by. I normally dont see any rats, she said. Theyre not really clean animals. No doubt Remy would be offended by such remarks. But he might appreciate the goings on at the Louvre Garden. He was, after all, an escape artist of sorts and in the end outdid his enemies. Rodents have long made Paris their home. In 2000, mice were caught picnicking on the delicate pastries in the window of the luxury shop Fauchon. To the west of the capital, moles are an ever-present problem at the Palace of Versailles which has its own molecatcher. Tourists may have to get used to an occasional rat scampering about the garden. Were doing everything we can. This is a recurring problem in all public gardens, Ndzana Ekani said. Given the size of the Louvre garden we cant eradicate them. Paris elegant Louvre Garden infested with rats Associated PressA rat runs next to a Maillol statue Tuesday in The Tuileries Garden in Paris, France. Associated PressWASHINGTON U.S. home prices rose in May from a year earlier at the weakest pace in 15 months as sales remain modest in the spring buying season. The Standard & Poors/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index, released Tuesday, increased 9.3 percent in May from 12 months earlier. Thats down from 10.8 percent in the previous month and the smallest annual gain since February 2013. Yearly price gains slowed in 18 of the 20 cities. They accelerated in Charlotte, North Carolina, and were flat in Tampa, Florida. Home prices soared last fall and winter but have been steadily returning to a more sustainable level this year. Existing home sales have picked up, rising to an eightmonth high in June. But they are still 2.3 percent below last years level. And an index of signed contracts dipped in June, suggesting sales will cool. At the same time, the number of homes for sale has increased, giving buyers more choices. After steady gains early last year, home sales have been restrained by weak wage increases and tight credit, particularly for first-time buyers. Mortgage rates also rose last summer, slowing sales. The Case-Shiller index covers roughly half of U.S. homes. The index measures prices compared with those in January 2000 and creates a three-month moving average. The May figures are the latest available. Cities in the West and South showed some of the biggest increases. Prices rose 16.9 percent in Las Vegas from a year earlier, the largest gain, followed by a 15.4 percent increase in San Francisco and 13.2 percent in Miami. Other housing data have painted a mixed picture of the real estate market. While sales of existing homes have picked up, new home sales plummeted in June. And new home construction has fallen for two straight months. Home price gains slow again

Kim Fuller 352-212-5752 NEW LISTING NEW LISTING Associated PressCynthia Kent and her husband, John, didnt set out to be landlords, but career choices made it necessary. We have rented out our home in Florida for nine years because we move all over with the military, says Kent, who recently relocated her family from Nevada to Alabama for yet another posting. Some people become accidental landlords because of a job change or difficulty selling a house. Others find they need to rent out the home of an elderly parent who has moved into a care facility. More than 3 million owner-occupied homes were converted to rental properties between 2007 and 2011, according to a 2013 report by the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University. Some advice for those taking on this challenging new role:FINDING THE RIGHT TENANTA credit check and legal background check can help you find reliable, honest tenants, says real-estate agent Gail Carpenter of Northwood Realty in Pittsburgh. Sometimes a credit check alone will rule out an applicant, she says. Personal references can be useful if the applicant is local and you have mutual acquaintances. Otherwise, be wary. Do not take personal references too seriously, says New York City condo owner Sharon Lynch, who rented her home to tenants while spending a year in California. Anyone can get a friend to write something nice about them. Lynch suggests using an online directory to search for an applicants current address and get contact information for their neighbors. Not only can these people tell you if your applicants are good neighbors, but they can also supply you with the landlords contact information, she says, just in case your potential tenant is faking you out, pretending a friend was his or her landlord. Meet applicants in person and really talk with them, Carpenter says. And request a rent that doesnt price good applicants out of the market. You might earn more over time with a slightly lower rent, she says, because that can help you keep your property occupied, versus asking for the moon and then it sits there vacant.PREP THE HOUSEOnce youve found your tenant, clean your home thoroughly and make the property as safe as it can be, Carpenter says. You may also want to tackle any looming home improvement jobs now, rather than leave your tenant to handle (or ignore) them when they become larger problems. If you plan to return to the home eventually, it can be practical to drop the rent slightly and fill one room with belongings youre leaving behind, rather than paying for a storage space. Put a new lock on that door and take the key with you.DOCUMENT AND DISCUSSIt helps to take pictures of the house inside and out, Kent says, to document its condition and cleanliness. Dont skip anything, and dont assume one panoramic shot of each room will do. If youre leaving furniture, also photograph the condition and cleanliness of each piece. When Lynch returned to find her tenant had damaged the kitchen countertop, such before photos were key in being able to use the tenants security deposit to help pay for repairs. When your tenant arrives to inspect the home before moving in, Kent says, have tenants sign a document So youve decided to rent out your home? Here are some tips See RENT / Page E7 insurance agencies or have already made profitable business arrangements to try to comply with the new rules. The multimillion-dollar deals illustrate how regulators are still wrestling with messy banking practices more than six years after the housing markets collapse. They also mean that newly sold insurance subsidiaries have an incentive to compel struggling homeowners to buy costly policies, to justify the high sales prices commanded when the insurance agencies were sold. Harwood collected more than $40 million last year on more than $200 million worth of insurance billed to homeowners, according to two people familiar with Nationstars confidential sales pitch for the business but who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it. Force-placed insurance is a type of backup property insurance meant to protect mortgage investors stake in uninsured properties. Standard mortgages require borrowers to maintain homeowners insurance and authorize the loans servicer to buy coverage when borrowers dont. If the borrowers dont pay for the new insurance, servicers foreclose on their properties and stick the bill to mortgage investors. Nationstars first attempt to sell its affiliated insurance agency fell through early this month after The Associated Press raised questions about the deal, prompting New Yorks Department of Financial Services to take a look. Nationstar is still seeking to sell the insurance agency, said one person who is familiar with its efforts and requested anonymity to discuss its business affairs without authorization to do so publicly. Nationstar declined to discuss details of Harwoods business. In court, however, Nationstar has opted not to fight to defend its arrangements. Earlier this month, Nationstar and Assurant Inc. reached a deal to settle a class-action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida that alleged Harwood existed solely to funnel profits to Nationstar at borrowers expense. Its unclear how or whether the Federal Housing Finance Agency, the industrys principal U.S. regulatory agency in Washington, will respond to such sales. In a statement, it expressed concern about the deals. But it said it could not stop servicers from selling their insurance agencies, even as it said it would work with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac if the companies were circumventing the new rules. The nations thirdlargest servicing company, Walter Investment Management Corp., disclosed in its Securities and Exchange Commission filings that rules banning commissions will cost it roughly $20 million a year and said it was actively looking at alternatives to giving up the cash. A spokeswoman, Whitney Finch, declined to explain further but said the company would comply with all regulations. Another company, Carrington Mortgage Services LLC of Santa Ana, California, didnt sell its insurance agency. It just agreed to let someone else collect the profits. In an Irish bond prospectus filed last year, Carringtons parent company disclosed that a buyer had paid it $21.25 million in late 2012. If Carrington doesnt send back at least that amount to the agencys buyer in commissions, it will have to give back some of the money it received. Carrington executives denied that its obligation to deliver $21.25 million of commissions would in any way affect homeowners or mortgage investors, and noted that it is not subject to the finance agency rules because it services loans owned by private investors. In its Irish prospectus,how ever, Carrington warned that some regulators believe the commissions may constitute an improper kickback, and added: Should any regulator decide to take action, we may be forced to pay restitution.

Associated PressWASHINGTON One of the countrys largest overseers of troubled home loans, Nationstar Mortgage Holdings Inc., is quietly trying to sell a $100 million insurance agency that doesnt appear to exist. Harwood Service Co. has no website, no independent offices and only a single registered agent. The switchboard operators at Nationstars headquarters in Lewisville, Texas, havent heard of Harwood. Callcenter employees of Assurant Inc., the insurance carrier whose policies Harwood sells, say the company is just a name used to refer Nationstar business. Only one thing justifies Harwoods nine-figure price tag: The ethereal company has long collected commissions on high-priced insurance that Nationstar compels otherwise-uninsured homeowners to buy. If homeowners cant pay for this force-placed coverage, Nationstar forecloses on their homes and sends the bill to mortgage bond investors. New rules by the Federal Housing Finance Agency, investigations by state regulators and class-action settlements now prohibit servicers from collecting commissions on such insurance policies, and the countrys biggest brand-name banks have renounced the practice. But some large subprimemortgage servicers appear to be trying to skirt those rules. They are selling or have sold the nearly nonexistent CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, AUGUST3, 2014E11 3521 N.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday that the nationwide average for a 30-year loan slipped to 4.12 percent from 4.13 percent last week. The average for the 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, declined to 3.23 percent from 3.26 percent last week. Mortgage rates are below the levels of a year ago. They have fallen in recent weeks after climbing last summer when the Federal Reserve began talking about reducing the monthly bond purchases it was making to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The Fed issued a statement Wednesday after a two-day policy meeting suggesting that it wants to see further improvement in the economy before it starts raising its key short-term interest rate. The central bank offered no clearer hint of when it will raise that rate, which is at a record low near zero. Home prices rose in May from a year earlier at the weakest pace in 15 months, data released Tuesday showed, as sales remain modest in the spring buying season. The Standard & Poors/Case-Shiller 20city home price index increased 9.3 percent in May from 12 months earlier. But thats down from 10.8 percent in the previous month and was the smallest annual gain since February 2013. At 4.12 percent, the rate on a 30-year mortgage is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Fed has been trimming its monthly bond purchases. The Fed said Wednesday that it will slow the pace of its purchases by another $10 billion to $25 billion a month. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was 0.6 point, unchanged from last week. The fee for a 15-year mortgage rose to 0.7 point from 0.6 point last week. When is a bowling pin not a bowling pin?

We sent a photograph of one of the six we have, as they are all identical. There are no marks or labels on them. The dimensions are 26 inches high and 3 3/4 inches in diameter. We appreciate your help, thank you. G.K., Internet Dear G.K.: You have Indian clubs used for physical exercise and strength training. They were first used in India and Afghanistan. British soldiers stationed in India learned to use them and brought them back to England in the 19th century where the practice became very popular. They were made of maple, mahogany, walnut, oak, and other woods. Some were plain vanilla without decoration, while others were polychrome decorated in vivid colors. They were made in different sizes for women, men and children with books of instructions for various swinging techniques. Indian clubs was an Olympic event in the 1904 Olympics in St. Louis, Missouri, and the 1932 Olympics. There is a lot of interesting information about them available on the Internet. Potential dollar value is below $50 each. Dear John: I purchased this dining room, bedroom set and clock in Germany 40 years ago. It is time that I sold these pieces, but I have no idea of value. The clock is a French wall clock that chimes, circa 1880 to 1890. I have not used it in a number of years, but it worked when I last used it. I had it worked on once because I overwound it. The dining room set is circa 1920. It is French farmhouse used more in country homes. The table, chairs and buffet were all bought on separate trips in France, but all have the same fruit carvings. The table is oval and the top of each leg is carved to screw directly into the top. It did not have the extension with it, so I had one made afterwards. It will hold six chairs with the extension in. I have six chairs, all in good shape. Some were recaned by hand about 30 years ago. The buffet has all working drawers and doors and is beautiful. The bed and nightstands are French transition period. The bed is full-size, put together with a metal peg with a ball with four holes in it at one end to screw it into thewood. I have attached pictures. Can you help me at all with the value of these items? B.H., Internet Dear B.H.: Box clocks were manufactured in massive quantities in Europe during the late 19th to early 20th century. The case appears to be made of mahogany John SikorskiSIKORSKIS ATTIC Inside...

Indian clubs were once a popular type of exercise equipment that, despite their name, originated in the Near East.Special to the Chronicle See ATTIC / Page E11 and the ormolu metal mounts at the upper portion of the clock are quite decorative. The two winding arbors on the dial indicate the clock strikes once on the half hour and the full hour on the hour. I think it was made during the early 20th century. Potential dollar value is close to $200 or over on a lucky day. The style of the buffet is art deco, but low on the totem pole relative to those interested in art deco. Potential dollar value is below $1,000. The chairs would likely sell in the range of $50 each and the table $100 to $200.John Sikorski has been a professional in the antiques business for 30 years.

It already was expensive, and a lot of these high-end markets werent hammered as hard during the downturn because they werent as exposed to subprime mortgages, so they had less ground to recover in the first place. George Limperis, an agent with Paragon Real Estate Group in San Francisco, agrees that freshly minted technology millionaires who can afford to bid up a property until they win it with an all-cash offer are helping to drive up demand. But unlike during the citys first tech boom in the late 1990s, the buyers prepared to lay down more than $1 million on a fixerupper in a neighborhood within walking distance of shops and restaurants also include Asian investors and retirees from other major cities who already are accustomed to skyscraper prices for shoebox dwellings, Limperis said. It feels like a very different city than it certainly did even 15 years ago. There is money coming from so many places now, he said. So many of these buyers today, they have lived in London, they have lived in Hong Kong, they have lived in New York, and to them these prices are parallel. We cant compare San Francisco with median housing prices even elsewhere in California because this is an international level we are dealing with. Limperis this month represented the sellers of a 1,200square-foot, two-bedroom home in poor condition that had been in their family for generations. Located on a commercial street in San Franciscos Noe Valley neighborhood, an area prized for its modest Victorians, the home was listed for a little under $1.2 million. By the end of its first week on the market, 10 people had submitted all-cash offers. The house sold for $1.8 million to a developer who plans to convert it into condos. Everyone is aghast at what these things sell for, but as long as the economy keeps going it like it does, these numbers do make sense, Limperis said. Being prepared to go well over a homes asking price and willing to sacrifice style or a second bathroom are some of the pointers that Kelly Kang, a colleague of Limperis at Paragon, gives to buyers. Kang just represented a young couple with a child who were interested in a 756-square-foot, twobedroom, one-bath row house built in 1950 in a newly hot neighborhood near a park and public transit that was listed at a little more than $1 million after having sold for $710,000 five years ago. The couple offered $1.2 million and wrote a love letter about the house explaining why it was just right for their family. They got the house. People that want to stay in San Francisco really love the city, so what they are buying is the city more than the property, Kang said. PRICESContinued from Page A1 Associated PressGeorge Limperis smiles Wednesday while walking through the kitchen of a property in the Noe Valley neighborhood in San Francisco. of the pictures, showing the condition at move-in. That walk-through inspection is vital for both parties. Always be present for the move-in and moveout inspections, says Babette Maxwell, who has rented her home to tenants several times during her husbands Navy career and founded Military Spouse magazine to advise other military families about challenges like this one. Also, Maxwell suggests, Provide your renter with a baggie of approved nails, screws, picture hangers. And if you have specific products you want used on your counters, cabinets, floors, yard, she says, list them in the lease.TEND THE OUTDOORSAs you negotiate the lease, dont forget to have a detailed discussion about outdoor space, too. Will you or the tenant pay for lawn cutting? Who will keep up with pulling weeds and trimming bushes? Is the tenant permitted to plant flowers and do other gardening? You may want to do an outdoor cleanup before you leave and then have the tenant agree to maintain that level of neatness. Scan the property for any trees that could fall on the house and assess their health. Better to pay now to have a sick tree removed than worry about the outcome of a storm.PLAN AHEADIf there are repairs or upgrades that you promise your tenant, set a schedule in your personal calendar for completing them in the weeks after they move in. Kent also recommends leaving a welcome binder that stays with the house with local information, cleaning requirements and other details. Make sure your tenant knows how to contact you and how to handle problems that might arise. Have a reputable contractor or other professional on-call in case something needs to be repaired, says Carpenter. A lot of landlords grumble about getting a call in the middle of the night, she says, but things will inevitably happen. Then, stay in touch. If you wont be living close enough to check on the property yourself, arrange for a friend or hire a property manager to do so. Being a landlord isnt just signing the lease and disappearing, Carpenter says. A tenant will respect you and your property more if you remain involved.

Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO San Francisco Association of Realtors President Betty Taisch has two words of advice for those who want to live here and think $1 million will buy them their dream house: Think again. In the souped-up world of San Francisco real estate, where the median selling price for houses and condominiums last month hit seven figures for the first time, the cool million that would fetch a mansion on a few acres elsewhere will now barely cover the cost of an 800-square foot starter home that needs work and may or may not include private parking. Taisch, a veteran broker who is used to managing her clients expectations, has experienced firsthand the heartbreak and hair-pulling inherent to househunting in what she considers one of the worlds most desirable, fabulous cities. Its also in the most expensive market in the country by several measures, according to recent surveys. Taisch put her professional skills to work this summer on behalf of her adult son and his family, who had outgrown their one-bedroom apartment. After three unsuccessful offers, they ended up paying $913,000 for a two-bedroom, one-bath house with an outdated kitchen, a yard that can charitably be called overgrown, and a big basement that Taisch counts as its most attractive feature. It certainly is a milestone. Its like, Wow! she said of the citys new million-dollar median. Everybody thinks San Francisco is all Pacific Heights Victorians, and its not. There are many areas of the city that are just normal, single-family homes that are small and not posh at all. The technologys industrys rapid growth coupled with 49square-mile San Franciscos constrained supply of housing is a big part of the story behind the citys ascension to a rarified real estate bracket already occupied by New York City, but Silicon Valley wealth also is stoking the market in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, according to Andrew LePage, an analyst with CoreLogic DataQuick, a real estate research firm in Irvine, California. Between April and June, the Bay Area saw a record number of homes and condos going for $1 million and above, and they accounted for one-quarter of all sales in the region, CoreLogic DataQuick said in a report released Thursday. During the same three-month period, six of the Bay Areas nine counties set records for the number of homes and condos selling for over $2 million, as did California as a whole, the report said.

It already was expensive, and a lot of these high-end markets werent hammered as hard during the downturn because they werent as exposed to subprime mortgages, so they had less ground to recover in the first place. George Limperis, an agent with Paragon Real Estate Group in San Francisco, agrees that freshly minted technology millionaires who can afford to bid up a property until they win it with an all-cash offer are helping to drive up demand. But unlike during the citys first tech boom in the late 1990s, the buyers prepared to lay down more than $1 million on a fixerupper in a neighborhood within walking distance of shops and restaurants also include Asian investors and retirees from other major cities who already are accustomed to skyscraper prices for shoebox dwellings, Limperis said. It feels like a very different city than it certainly did even 15 years ago. There is money coming from so many places now, he said. So many of these buyers today, they have lived in London, they have lived in Hong Kong, they have lived in New York, and to them these prices are parallel. We cant compare San Francisco with median housing prices even elsewhere in California because this is an international level we are dealing with. Limperis this month represented the sellers of a 1,200square-foot, two-bedroom home in poor condition that had been in their family for generations. Located on a commercial street in San Franciscos Noe Valley neighborhood, an area prized for its modest Victorians, the home was listed for a little under $1.2 million. By the end of its first week on the market, 10 people had submitted all-cash offers. The house sold for $1.8 million to a developer who plans to convert it into condos. Everyone is aghast at what these things sell for, but as long as the economy keeps going it like it does, these numbers do make sense, Limperis said. Being prepared to go well over a homes asking price and willing to sacrifice style or a second bathroom are some of the pointers that Kelly Kang, a colleague of Limperis at Paragon, gives to buyers. Kang just represented a young couple with a child who were interested in a 756-square-foot, twobedroom, one-bath row house built in 1950 in a newly hot neighborhood near a park and public transit that was listed at a little more than $1 million after having sold for $710,000 five years ago. The couple offered $1.2 million and wrote a love letter about the house explaining why it was just right for their family. They got the house. People that want to stay in San Francisco really love the city, so what they are buying is the city more than the property, Kang said. PRICESContinued from Page A1 Associated PressGeorge Limperis smiles Wednesday while walking through the kitchen of a property in the Noe Valley neighborhood in San Francisco. of the pictures, showing the condition at move-in. That walk-through inspection is vital for both parties. Always be present for the move-in and moveout inspections, says Babette Maxwell, who has rented her home to tenants several times during her husbands Navy career and founded Military Spouse magazine to advise other military families about challenges like this one. Also, Maxwell suggests, Provide your renter with a baggie of approved nails, screws, picture hangers. And if you have specific products you want used on your counters, cabinets, floors, yard, she says, list them in the lease.TEND THE OUTDOORSAs you negotiate the lease, dont forget to have a detailed discussion about outdoor space, too. Will you or the tenant pay for lawn cutting? Who will keep up with pulling weeds and trimming bushes? Is the tenant permitted to plant flowers and do other gardening? You may want to do an outdoor cleanup before you leave and then have the tenant agree to maintain that level of neatness. Scan the property for any trees that could fall on the house and assess their health. Better to pay now to have a sick tree removed than worry about the outcome of a storm.PLAN AHEADIf there are repairs or upgrades that you promise your tenant, set a schedule in your personal calendar for completing them in the weeks after they move in. Kent also recommends leaving a welcome binder that stays with the house with local information, cleaning requirements and other details. Make sure your tenant knows how to contact you and how to handle problems that might arise. Have a reputable contractor or other professional on-call in case something needs to be repaired, says Carpenter. A lot of landlords grumble about getting a call in the middle of the night, she says, but things will inevitably happen. Then, stay in touch. If you wont be living close enough to check on the property yourself, arrange for a friend or hire a property manager to do so. Being a landlord isnt just signing the lease and disappearing, Carpenter says. A tenant will respect you and your property more if you remain involved.

Associated PressWASHINGTON One of the countrys largest overseers of troubled home loans, Nationstar Mortgage Holdings Inc., is quietly trying to sell a $100 million insurance agency that doesnt appear to exist. Harwood Service Co. has no website, no independent offices and only a single registered agent. The switchboard operators at Nationstars headquarters in Lewisville, Texas, havent heard of Harwood. Callcenter employees of Assurant Inc., the insurance carrier whose policies Harwood sells, say the company is just a name used to refer Nationstar business. Only one thing justifies Harwoods nine-figure price tag: The ethereal company has long collected commissions on high-priced insurance that Nationstar compels otherwise-uninsured homeowners to buy. If homeowners cant pay for this force-placed coverage, Nationstar forecloses on their homes and sends the bill to mortgage bond investors. New rules by the Federal Housing Finance Agency, investigations by state regulators and class-action settlements now prohibit servicers from collecting commissions on such insurance policies, and the countrys biggest brand-name banks have renounced the practice. But some large subprimemortgage servicers appear to be trying to skirt those rules. They are selling or have sold the nearly nonexistent CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, AUGUST3, 2014E11 3521 N.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday that the nationwide average for a 30-year loan slipped to 4.12 percent from 4.13 percent last week. The average for the 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, declined to 3.23 percent from 3.26 percent last week. Mortgage rates are below the levels of a year ago. They have fallen in recent weeks after climbing last summer when the Federal Reserve began talking about reducing the monthly bond purchases it was making to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The Fed issued a statement Wednesday after a two-day policy meeting suggesting that it wants to see further improvement in the economy before it starts raising its key short-term interest rate. The central bank offered no clearer hint of when it will raise that rate, which is at a record low near zero. Home prices rose in May from a year earlier at the weakest pace in 15 months, data released Tuesday showed, as sales remain modest in the spring buying season. The Standard & Poors/Case-Shiller 20city home price index increased 9.3 percent in May from 12 months earlier. But thats down from 10.8 percent in the previous month and was the smallest annual gain since February 2013. At 4.12 percent, the rate on a 30-year mortgage is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Fed has been trimming its monthly bond purchases. The Fed said Wednesday that it will slow the pace of its purchases by another $10 billion to $25 billion a month. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was 0.6 point, unchanged from last week. The fee for a 15-year mortgage rose to 0.7 point from 0.6 point last week. When is a bowling pin not a bowling pin? Dear John: A short while ago we sent you a letter asking about what we thought were bowling pins. A friend had told us they were not bowling pins and you suggested we send photos of them. We sent a photograph of one of the six we have, as they are all identical. There are no marks or labels on them. The dimensions are 26 inches high and 3 3/4 inches in diameter. We appreciate your help, thank you. G.K., Internet Dear G.K.: You have Indian clubs used for physical exercise and strength training. They were first used in India and Afghanistan. British soldiers stationed in India learned to use them and brought them back to England in the 19th century where the practice became very popular. They were made of maple, mahogany, walnut, oak, and other woods. Some were plain vanilla without decoration, while others were polychrome decorated in vivid colors. They were made in different sizes for women, men and children with books of instructions for various swinging techniques. Indian clubs was an Olympic event in the 1904 Olympics in St. Louis, Missouri, and the 1932 Olympics. There is a lot of interesting information about them available on the Internet. Potential dollar value is below $50 each. Dear John: I purchased this dining room, bedroom set and clock in Germany 40 years ago. It is time that I sold these pieces, but I have no idea of value. The clock is a French wall clock that chimes, circa 1880 to 1890. I have not used it in a number of years, but it worked when I last used it. I had it worked on once because I overwound it. The dining room set is circa 1920. It is French farmhouse used more in country homes. The table, chairs and buffet were all bought on separate trips in France, but all have the same fruit carvings. The table is oval and the top of each leg is carved to screw directly into the top. It did not have the extension with it, so I had one made afterwards. It will hold six chairs with the extension in. I have six chairs, all in good shape. Some were recaned by hand about 30 years ago. The buffet has all working drawers and doors and is beautiful. The bed and nightstands are French transition period. The bed is full-size, put together with a metal peg with a ball with four holes in it at one end to screw it into thewood. I have attached pictures. Can you help me at all with the value of these items? B.H., Internet Dear B.H.: Box clocks were manufactured in massive quantities in Europe during the late 19th to early 20th century.

The two winding arbors on the dial indicate the clock strikes once on the half hour and the full hour on the hour. I think it was made during the early 20th century. Potential dollar value is close to $200 or over on a lucky day. The style of the buffet is art deco, but low on the totem pole relative to those interested in art deco. Potential dollar value is below $1,000. The chairs would likely sell in the range of $50 each and the table $100 to $200.John Sikorski has been a professional in the antiques business for 30 years.

Kim Fuller 352-212-5752 NEW LISTING NEW LISTING Associated PressCynthia Kent and her husband, John, didnt set out to be landlords, but career choices made it necessary. We have rented out our home in Florida for nine years because we move all over with the military, says Kent, who recently relocated her family from Nevada to Alabama for yet another posting. Some people become accidental landlords because of a job change or difficulty selling a house. Others find they need to rent out the home of an elderly parent who has moved into a care facility. More than 3 million owner-occupied homes were converted to rental properties between 2007 and 2011, according to a 2013 report by the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University. Some advice for those taking on this challenging new role:FINDING THE RIGHT TENANTA credit check and legal background check can help you find reliable, honest tenants, says real-estate agent Gail Carpenter of Northwood Realty in Pittsburgh. Sometimes a credit check alone will rule out an applicant, she says. Personal references can be useful if the applicant is local and you have mutual acquaintances. Otherwise, be wary. Do not take personal references too seriously, says New York City condo owner Sharon Lynch, who rented her home to tenants while spending a year in California. Anyone can get a friend to write something nice about them. Lynch suggests using an online directory to search for an applicants current address and get contact information for their neighbors. Not only can these people tell you if your applicants are good neighbors, but they can also supply you with the landlords contact information, she says, just in case your potential tenant is faking you out, pretending a friend was his or her landlord. Meet applicants in person and really talk with them, Carpenter says. And request a rent that doesnt price good applicants out of the market. You might earn more over time with a slightly lower rent, she says, because that can help you keep your property occupied, versus asking for the moon and then it sits there vacant.PREP THE HOUSEOnce youve found your tenant, clean your home thoroughly and make the property as safe as it can be, Carpenter says. You may also want to tackle any looming home improvement jobs now, rather than leave your tenant to handle (or ignore) them when they become larger problems. If you plan to return to the home eventually, it can be practical to drop the rent slightly and fill one room with belongings youre leaving behind, rather than paying for a storage space. Put a new lock on that door and take the key with you.DOCUMENT AND DISCUSSIt helps to take pictures of the house inside and out, Kent says, to document its condition and cleanliness. Dont skip anything, and dont assume one panoramic shot of each room will do. If youre leaving furniture, also photograph the condition and cleanliness of each piece. When Lynch returned to find her tenant had damaged the kitchen countertop, such before photos were key in being able to use the tenants security deposit to help pay for repairs. When your tenant arrives to inspect the home before moving in, Kent says, have tenants sign a document So youve decided to rent out your home? Here are some tips See RENT / Page E7 insurance agencies or have already made profitable business arrangements to try to comply with the new rules. The multimillion-dollar deals illustrate how regulators are still wrestling with messy banking practices more than six years after the housing markets collapse. They also mean that newly sold insurance subsidiaries have an incentive to compel struggling homeowners to buy costly policies, to justify the high sales prices commanded when the insurance agencies were sold. Harwood collected more than $40 million last year on more than $200 million worth of insurance billed to homeowners, according to two people familiar with Nationstars confidential sales pitch for the business but who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it. Force-placed insurance is a type of backup property insurance meant to protect mortgage investors stake in uninsured properties. Standard mortgages require borrowers to maintain homeowners insurance and authorize the loans servicer to buy coverage when borrowers dont. If the borrowers dont pay for the new insurance, servicers foreclose on their properties and stick the bill to mortgage investors. Nationstars first attempt to sell its affiliated insurance agency fell through early this month after The Associated Press raised questions about the deal, prompting New Yorks Department of Financial Services to take a look. Nationstar is still seeking to sell the insurance agency, said one person who is familiar with its efforts and requested anonymity to discuss its business affairs without authorization to do so publicly. Nationstar declined to discuss details of Harwoods business. In court, however, Nationstar has opted not to fight to defend its arrangements. Earlier this month, Nationstar and Assurant Inc. reached a deal to settle a class-action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida that alleged Harwood existed solely to funnel profits to Nationstar at borrowers expense. Its unclear how or whether the Federal Housing Finance Agency, the industrys principal U.S. regulatory agency in Washington, will respond to such sales. In a statement, it expressed concern about the deals. But it said it could not stop servicers from selling their insurance agencies, even as it said it would work with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac if the companies were circumventing the new rules. The nations thirdlargest servicing company, Walter Investment Management Corp., disclosed in its Securities and Exchange Commission filings that rules banning commissions will cost it roughly $20 million a year and said it was actively looking at alternatives to giving up the cash. A spokeswoman, Whitney Finch, declined to explain further but said the company would comply with all regulations. Another company, Carrington Mortgage Services LLC of Santa Ana, California, didnt sell its insurance agency. It just agreed to let someone else collect the profits. In an Irish bond prospectus filed last year, Carringtons parent company disclosed that a buyer had paid it $21.25 million in late 2012. If Carrington doesnt send back at least that amount to the agencys buyer in commissions, it will have to give back some of the money it received. Carrington executives denied that its obligation to deliver $21.25 million of commissions would in any way affect homeowners or mortgage investors, and noted that it is not subject to the finance agency rules because it services loans owned by private investors. In its Irish prospectus,how ever, Carrington warned that some regulators believe the commissions may constitute an improper kickback, and added: Should any regulator decide to take action, we may be forced to pay restitution.

Tweet Tweet Tweet Follow the Chronicle on www.twitter.com/ citruschroniclenews as it happens right at your finger tips Associated PressPARIS Rats are on the rampage in the elegant garden of the Louvre Museum, so bold they romp on the grass in broad daylight, defying death threats from sanitation workers and scaring tourists. The hot weather in Paris has brought many picnicking visitors to the garden, whose garbage is a feast for the rats. And theyre getting help from animal lovers who dig up poison and feed them water. Maybe its the Ratatouille effect, with the beloved French rat Remy from Disneys computer animated film helping real-life rats win Parisian hearts. The vermin are finding a lifeline from people who dont want us to kill animals, said Jean-Claude Ndzana Ekani, a museum employee who was working Tuesday with technicians from an extermination company, The lush area which extends into the Tuileries Gardens gives a rat plenty of places to hide, but still the critters scamper about openly, unfazed by people strolling about. The Louvre, which owns the garden, has been trying to combat the rat problem for months, but clearly hasnt succeeded. In May, sanitation officials and exterminators decided to embark on an all-out offensive: A decision was made to do a shock operation, Ndzana Ekani said. Workers, acting methodically, were seen Tuesday pouring poison down the rat holes. It hasnt helped. I see about 10 or 15 (rats) every day, said Traore Massamba, 25, a maintenance worker. There are a lot of people who come here to picnic and they leave their leftovers, so I think that attracts them. Dutch tourist Evelyne Delemarre, 31, let out a scream after seeing a rat scamper by. I normally dont see any rats, she said. Theyre not really clean animals. No doubt Remy would be offended by such remarks. But he might appreciate the goings on at the Louvre Garden. He was, after all, an escape artist of sorts and in the end outdid his enemies. Rodents have long made Paris their home. In 2000, mice were caught picnicking on the delicate pastries in the window of the luxury shop Fauchon. To the west of the capital, moles are an ever-present problem at the Palace of Versailles which has its own molecatcher. Tourists may have to get used to an occasional rat scampering about the garden. Were doing everything we can. This is a recurring problem in all public gardens, Ndzana Ekani said. Given the size of the Louvre garden we cant eradicate them. Paris elegant Louvre Garden infested with rats Associated PressA rat runs next to a Maillol statue Tuesday in The Tuileries Garden in Paris, France. Associated PressWASHINGTON U.S. home prices rose in May from a year earlier at the weakest pace in 15 months as sales remain modest in the spring buying season. The Standard & Poors/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index, released Tuesday, increased 9.3 percent in May from 12 months earlier. Thats down from 10.8 percent in the previous month and the smallest annual gain since February 2013. Yearly price gains slowed in 18 of the 20 cities. They accelerated in Charlotte, North Carolina, and were flat in Tampa, Florida. Home prices soared last fall and winter but have been steadily returning to a more sustainable level this year. Existing home sales have picked up, rising to an eightmonth high in June. But they are still 2.3 percent below last years level. And an index of signed contracts dipped in June, suggesting sales will cool. At the same time, the number of homes for sale has increased, giving buyers more choices. After steady gains early last year, home sales have been restrained by weak wage increases and tight credit, particularly for first-time buyers. Mortgage rates also rose last summer, slowing sales. The Case-Shiller index covers roughly half of U.S. homes. The index measures prices compared with those in January 2000 and creates a three-month moving average. The May figures are the latest available. Cities in the West and South showed some of the biggest increases. Prices rose 16.9 percent in Las Vegas from a year earlier, the largest gain, followed by a 15.4 percent increase in San Francisco and 13.2 percent in Miami. Other housing data have painted a mixed picture of the real estate market. While sales of existing homes have picked up, new home sales plummeted in June. And new home construction has fallen for two straight months. Home price gains slow again

Associated PressMIAMI A federal judge has slammed Miami-Dade County for refusing to delay demolition of a soldiers home while he trained in California for deployment to the Middle East. The Miami Heraldreported the house was razed in 2011 after U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Jesus Jimenez did not heed numerous county requests to fix building code violations. Jimenez had repeatedly asked for extensions to fix the problems while he training or on a mission. At one point his commanding military officer also weighed in, asking to officials to stay the hearing 90 days while Jimenez was conducting training on how to defuse improvised explosive devices in Iraq. U.S. Judge Robert Scola Jr. sided with the father of four last week, scheduling a September trial to decide what the county owes Jimenez. But he urged both sides to first attempt a settlement. At issue is a World War II-era law, reinstated in 2003, that allows for the temporary suspension of legal or administrative proceedings that could affect active duty military members civil rights. While it is possible that the Jimenezes employed dilatory tactics to avoid remedying the violations on their property and complying with the applicable building ordinances, Scola wrote, their behavior does not negate the (countys) failure to stay the proceedings.... The county argued that Jimenez was in the Army Reserves when it issued the violations. But Scola ruled that since Jimenez was on active duty when he requested the stay, he should have been protected. County officials declined to discuss the case with the Herald, citing the ongoing litigation. But in court filings, MiamiDade representatives said theyd given Jimenez more than enough time to fix the violations between deployments. The family rented seven rooms in two houses without permission. Among the problems with their home that sparked the initial code enforcement citations: deteriorating porch beams and a deteriorated roof, as well as a damaged door and an uncovered electrical junction box. Jimenez says he tried to fix the initial problems but didnt have the money to take out the necessary construction permits. Then he was sent to a Wisconsin training base and was fined for failing to complete the work. Meanwhile, inspectors reviewed the house more closely and ordered more improvements.

Gardeners like perennial plants that will last for many years in the garden, have a long bloom season and grow well without much maintenance. Purple coneflower is one of nine species of perennial Echinacea native to the United States which occur naturally nowhere else in the world. It is readily available at retail garden centers. Coneflowers are frost-hardy, as they go dormant and lose their leaves in winter. However, they cannot survive the summer heat south of Central Floridas heat zone 10. Purple coneflower, Echinacea purpurea, thrives in full sun further north in its normal cold zones 7 to 10. In Central Floridas cold zones 8b (basically north of the Withalacoochee River) and Zone 9a (south of it), plant Echinacea in part afternoon shade under a high tree canopy. Citrus, Levy and Marion counties are within Echinaceas preferred cold zone. Understanding the plants needs and then preparing a suitable spot in the garden is important before trying to grow any plant outside its natural habitat. High, filtered shade will help prevent sun scorch and leaf wilt on scorching afternoons and keep the soil a little cooler. Purple coneflower prefers humus-rich but well-drained soil. In sandy soils it may be necessary to add organic, vegetable, finely milled mulch or finished compost to the planting bed. Coneflowers prefer calcareous conditions slightly alkaline and containing lime. Years ago, coneflowers were planted in the parking lot island at Dunnellon Public Library. Apart from annual mulching with pine needles, these plants have had minimal care or maintenance. Part of their thriving success is due to the base limerock beneath the garden soil. The shade under the mature trees keeps the coneflowers cooler all summer. The best feature of Echinacea is its showy flowers from June to October. Deadheading snipping off spent flower heads encourages more flowering while keeping the garden tidy. In the composite or Aster family, coneflowers have purple, petal-like ray flowers surrounding a raised center disk of brownish-purple disk flowers. Flowers are up to 4 inches wide atop 2to 3-foottall stems. Purple coneflower produces nectar and pollen for many bees and butterflies, including Floridas state butterfly, the pollen-gathering zebra longwing. There are a few, sparse, alternate leaves on the flower stalks. Most of the leaves are clustered in a basal rosette close to the ground. Leaves are 3 to 6 inches long and lanceshaped with toothed edges. The dark green leaves are coarse in texture. Seeds are tiny achenes borne in the disk flowers. Finches wintering locally find Echinacea seeds irresistible. Seeds need at least a month in continuously cold conditions below 40 degrees to stratify in winter before they can sprout after frost is over in spring. In mild Central Florida, coneflowers seeds rarely sprout. Propagation here could be by division while dormant in winter. Most gardeners buy seed-grown plants from more northern growers. Packaged Echinacea seeds may be already moist-stratified and ready to sprout. Echinacea makesa good addition to any lowmaintenance perennial garden. Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant. Semi-retired, she grows thousands of native plants. Visitors are welcome to her Dunnellon, Marion County, garden.
