A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerA former deputy with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office has been living a nightmarish odyssey for the past 26 months after being accused of a sexual crime against his stepdaughter, then a minor. Charges in that case were dropped July11 because the prosecutor said testimony of various witnesses has changed and that the case lacked physical evidence. However, it has been a legal journey that has tapped Lynn Tabbs retirement account, savings and any prospects for a good employment. Tabb, 50, who is currently delivering pizza at minimum wage, couples those earnings with the equally meager wages of his wife, Christina, to eke out a living. Tabb now wants to return to his job with CCSO. Its a saga, Tabb said recently. I want everything I lost. Its been crazy for me and my family, he said about his legal troubles. Tabb said he and his family were forced to move in with his mother in Dade City for most of the past two years and just recently secured an apartment after he got a job as a delivery driver. You cant get a real job when you have been accused of something like this, said Tabb, who said he is currently working on a masters degree. I just want things to get back to be being like it was and before all this craziness, he said. But the sheriffs office isnt interested in taking Tabb back. His calls to the agency to meet with Sheriff Jeff Dawsy have not been returned, according to his attorney, Bill Grant. According to CCSO spokeswoman Heather Yates, Tabb violated the agencys employee code of conduct by being absent from work for four days (May25, 26, 27 and 31 in 2012) without proper notification. Tabb was terminated May31 and was arrested and charged with the sex crimes by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement on June1. He was not let go because of the charges. He was terminated because he violated the employee code of conduct, Yates said. NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerNineteen stainless-steel sculptures of military troops on patrol stand eerily in a field of juniper bushes and granite slabs. They are Army, Marines, Navy and Air Force, wearing full combat gear, carrying their weapons, covered by ponchos that appear to be blowing in the frigid winds of Korea. Their images are reflected in the 164-foot-long black granite mural wall with its two-dimensional etchings of more than 2,400 photos from the Korean War that are part of the National Archives in Washington, D.C. It speaks so much about what it was really like there, said retired Lt. Col. Hank Butler, commander of the Korean War Veterans Chapter 192. The men on patrol, the eerie faces in the black granite wall its something everyone should see. Dedicated on July27, 1995, the memorial commemorates the sacrifices of 5.8million Americans who served in that war. Of those who served, 54,246 Americans lost their lives, 103,284 were wounded and about 8,200 are still unaccounted for. The Korean War Veterans Memorial, located near the Lincoln Memorial on the National Mall, is one of the stops on a tour of the Honor Flight. Up until now, the Honor Flight has been limited to World WarII veterans. Beginning this year, Korean War veterans will be eligible to take the free one-day flight to Washington, D.C., to visit their memorial and other memorials in the area. Our chapter has already sponsored a World WarII veteran to go on a flight, and our guys are the next ones up, Butler said. Were getting older and weve lost 19 from our chapter since we formed it in 2001, so Korean War vets are leaving us, too. Although World WarII veterans are still the priority, Korean War veterans can sign up for an Honor Flight by contacting Honor Flight of West Central Florida at 727-498-6079 or info@honorflightwcf.org.

Today marks the 61st anniversary of the armistice that effectively ended combat between North and South Korea. Korean War Veterans Memorial pays tribute to vets Korean War armistice signed 61 years agoNANCYKENNEDY Staff writerMaybe its their generation. Many of the men and women who served in the Korean War (1950-1953) are from the silent generation, those born in the late 1920s to 1930s. Characterized by a work hard and pay your dues mentality, they went off to war just as their fathers, uncles and grandfathers did, not expecting fanfare when they returned which they did not, for the most part, receive. This was the forgotten war, sandwiched between the epic World War II and the politically charged Vietnam War of the tumultuous 1960s. One of the reasons maybe this was a forgotten war is that Korean War veterans tend to be a little reticent about being recognized, said Bob Crawford, retired U.S. Marine Corps Reserve colonel. Crawford served in the Army as an engineer during the Korean War. Youll see guys with Korea on their caps, but not be part of any (veterans) organization, he said. To them its over; its finished. I think we look back in reflection and see how well the Koreans have done in the last 50 to 60 years and we feel weve been successful in what we did by doing what (Gen.) MacArthur and the president wanted done, and that was to stem the growth of communism in Asia and thats what we did. Today, July27, marks the 61st anniversary of the armistice that ended the fighting between the Soviet-backed North Korean Peoples Army and South Korea.

PrimaryELECTION ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerWhen it comes to student achievement, incumbent Sandy Balfour believes school board members should be accessible. Im a fix-it kind of person, Balfour said. I moved into education because of things I noticed with my own children. As a school board member, I enjoy seeing how the puzzle fits together and how it creates policy, which will help student achievement. Its imperative that any board member portray and be easily reached for student success. Balfour, who was unsuccessful in a 2012 bid for superintendent of schools losing to the incumbent was appointed to the District4 seat on the school board in June2013 by Gov. Rick Scott after newly elected board member Susan Hale resigned. Balfour is ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerSince she was a little girl in Sunday school, Bev Howard knew she would spend her life educating children. Howard said she began studying the lesson every Saturday night and stood in front of her peers the next morning to teach the Sunday school message. That experience drove her love of education. When I am in the classroom, there is nowhere else I would rather be, Howard said. Well, I retired but realized that I wasnt ready to retire from education. Howard, 65, of Homosassa, is running against incumbent Sandy Balfour for Citrus County School Board District4, to which Balfour received a gubernatorial appointment after Susan Hale stepped down from the position shortly after being elected.

Man accused of predatory towing at Gay DaysORLANDO Authorities have arrested a man they say illegally towed cars during Orlandos 2014 Gay Days celebration. Orange County Sheriffs Office deputies arrested 45-year-old Jason Combs for towing more than 100 vehicles between June 5 and June 9. The arrest came after complaints that Combs ASAP Towing company targeted victims based on their sexual orientation. Authorities said ASAP made $16,000 towing the cars, but lacked permission to do so. Combs attorney said Saturday his client had a contract to tow vehicles parked illegally. Investigators are also looking into collusion with cab companies who lined up to take stranded drivers to the tow lot. Combs faces 29 counts of grand theft auto.Civil rights site returns to St. Augustine homeST. AUGUSTINE A 1960s civil rights era landmark is returning to its St. Augustine roots. The Woolworths counter where four black teenagers were arrested after attempting to order Cokes and hamburgers in 1963 will be on display in the downtown Wells Fargo Bank. The site marks the former home of the Woolworths where the teens protested the all-white lunch counter. The group served six months in jail for refusing to move and became known as the The St. Augustine Four. The St. Augustine Record reported Saturday that the original counter and related relics will be on display thanks to Mayor Joe Boles, who lent it to the bank.From wire reports Associated PressTAMPA Top Florida Republican officials including the governor have enjoyed hunting trips to South Texas historic King Ranch thanks to the Sunshine States sugar industry, but they arent talking about them. TheTampa Bay Timesreported Saturday that an analysis of records shows the trips were financed all or in part by the Florida sugar industry. The lack of disclosure could enable officials and sugar lobbyists to avoid scrutiny about discussions on a host of important issues such as state agriculture policy, water pollution and Everglades protection. Under a 2006 ban, lawmakers cant accept free meals, drinks or trips from donors, but a legal loophole allows parties and political committees to do so. They can then pass on these gifts without detailing who gives or receives them as long as the donations are considered to have a campaign purpose. The Timesanalysis shows that in the past three years, U.S. Sugar paid nearly $100,000 to the Republican Party of Florida for at least 20 weekend trips. The destinations were not made public, but all occurred within days of more than a dozen Florida politicians registering for Texas hunting licenses. Republican Party Spokeswoman Susan Hepworth says the party follows the letter of the law but declined to discuss the trips. The tension over just what gifts lawmakers can receive goes back decades in Florida. Leon County state attorney Willie Meggs prosecuted a 1992 case against two dozen Florida lawmakers accused of accepting free trips from corporate lobbyists. He said the King Ranch trips may not be illegal, but they raise questions about the lack of transparency. The trips to King Ranch appear to have begun back in 2011, when U.S. Sugar began leasing 30,000 acres and built a hunting lodge there. King Ranch is also the largest member of the Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida. Both Gov. Rick Scott and Agriculture Secretary Adam Putnam are among those who visited the retreat, but the trips dont show up on their official schedules. Asked about his travels there, Scott on Friday released a statement saying he visited the retreat in February of 2013 in support of his political fundraising efforts. A campaign aide said the governor paid for his own hunting license and flight and that costs were covered by appropriate political entities and properly reported as required by law. State travel records show Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents who guard Scott accompanied him, but the state was not charged for their stay. FDLE officials could not explain to the Timeswhy the state did not pay, despite the fact it normally picks up the tab for the governors security detail even on personal trips. Putnam said the trips raised money for the state GOP and referred questions to the party. Florida Republican Party campaign documents do not list King Ranch on any documents related to fundraising or donations. Sugar industry officials declined to comment. Lawmakers who confirmed they visited the ranch include Former House Speaker Rep. Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park. Cannon said he paid his way but declined to provide more details.A2SUNDAY, JULY27, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESTATE Two Miles East Of Hwy. 491 OPEN: 9:00 AM 5:00 PM, Monday thru Saturday 10:00 AM 4:00 PM, SundayWeather permitting(352) 746-6465www.ColorCountryNursery.com colorcountrynursery@facebook.com Variety Size Sale Price Arizona Cypress................7 Gal.

Around theSTATE Citrus County Seventh-graders need TDAP vaccineThe Citrus County School Board would like to remind parents of incoming seventh-graders that the TDAP (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) vaccine is required before starting school.

However, in the District 4 race between Scott Carnahan and Winn Webb, both candidates are in the Republican Party. Because the race will be decided in the primary election, it will be on all ballots, allowing all voters to vote in this election.

David Daniel, the CEO of Lakeland Surgical & Diagnostic Center, said it was highly unlikely the exposure to the disease occurred, but he wanted to take all precautionary measures. The disease is the human form of mad cow disease, called Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. The Ledger reported that the surgical instruments in question were on a tray at Lakeland Regional Medical Center. Officials at the surgicalcenter canceled 10 surgeries Friday and planned to soak all instruments in bleach over the weekend.OcalaFDLE investigates sheriffs use of forceThe Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the death of a teenager killed after the stolen truck he was in was forced off the road Wednesday by Dixie Countys sheriff. Police say 17-year-old David Newmeyer died after he stole a truck from an Ocala gym and led authorities on a high-speed chase. Dixie County Sheriff Dewey Hatcher forced the truck off U.S. 19 near Cross City, which also injured two other teenagers riding inside. From staff and wire reports Page A3SUNDAY, JULY 27, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerNotebooks. Crayons. Book bags. Volunteers and good Samaritans flocked to stuff seven Citrus County School District buses with an abundance of supplies Saturday. The annual Stuff the Bus campaign affords local residents the opportunity to make a difference in the life of a child in need by donating new school supplies to the district. It is all for our children, thats what it is all about, said Bernadette Salmaggi, educational services secretary. So when our children come to school, they just have what they need and dont feel left out. Buses were parked at Publix and Walmart stores throughout the county. By noon, Salmaggi said, the buses were already half full. We dont set a goal because we would go over it each year, Salmaggi said. The community is so generous. They are not only the people who have children in school, but they are the ones that dont even have a child there anymore. We are just thankful. The actual total of Saturdays haul is not yet known. Bus drivers will deliver the donations to the district office in Inverness on Monday, where they will be kept and sorted for individual deliveries to schools. Supplies will be divided based on enrollment and need. They will be delivered to guidance counselors, who know specific needs of certain students. While the Stuff the Bus campaign has ended, Salmaggi said donations are more than welcome throughout the year at the district office, 1007 W. Main St., Inverness. I will be happy to accommodate any drop-off times, she said. I just do what I can to ensure that kids have what they need.

CampaignTRAIL Camera spies Keys turtle hatchlingsBIG PINE KEY A livestreaming webcam has recorded loggerhead sea turtle hatchlings emerging from a nest on a Keys beach. About 100 three-inch-long infants emerged from the mound Friday night and headed to the ocean under faint moonlight. The high-definition camera recorded the scene and broadcast it online. The camera uses infrared lighting so hatchlings will make their way to sea without being confused by the artificial light. Loggerheads are among five threatened or endangered sea turtle species that nest on Keys beaches.

The patients got a taste of winter in the hospital courtyard, where fake snow was blown into the air.From wire reports StateBRIEFS

In 1789, President George Washington signed a measure establishing the Department of Foreign Affairs. In 1921, Canadian researcher Frederick Banting and his assistant, Charles Best, succeeded in isolating the hormone insulin. In 1953, the Korean War armistice was signed at Panmunjom, ending three years of fighting. In 1996, terror struck the Atlanta Olympics as a pipe bomb exploded at Centennial Olympic Park, directly killing one person and injuring 111. (Anti-government extremist Eric Rudolph later pleaded guilty to the bombing.) Five years ago: A sailboat with an estimated 200 Haitians aboard ran aground on a reef and sank off the Turks and Caicos Islands; authorities reported 119 survivors, 15 confirmed dead and dozens missing. One year ago: More than a thousand inmates escaped a prison in Libya as protesters stormed political party offices across the country. Todays birthdays: TV producer Norman Lear is 92. Actor Jerry Van Dyke is 83. Sportscaster Irv Cross is 75. Singer Bobbie Gentry is 70. Comedian-actress-writer Carol Leifer is 58. Comedian Bill Engvall is 57. Comedian Maya Rudolph is 42.

Actor Rob Corddry moderated the session featuring producer Hugh Davidson and stars Tyson, Jim Rash and Rachel Ramras On Mike Tyson Mysteries, a cartoon version of Tyson teams up with a pigeon to solve cases. Ramras voices the character of Tysons adopted Korean daughter. When this was brought up on the panel, Tyson interrupted, saying he thought until that moment that she was Chinese. He then commented that he never adopted a Chinese girl in real life. When Rash was answering a question about doing voice work, Tyson interrupted to point out an audience member who resembled Jerry Garcia. And thats the end of my answer, Rash said with a laugh. Tyson then went on a tangent about a Garcia documentary he watched. At another point, he launched into why hes glad hes no longer boxing. Listen, Im glad I dont have to punch people no more. God, that was stressful, he lamented. Thats why I dont like doing it. I got punched enough, too. You (get) hit with the lawsuits afterward. You knock the guy out quick (and) youre so geeked up, you hit somebody else, youve got an officer involved and the next thing you know youve got a lawyer, youve got a jury .... youve got a witness involved in your life. When Tyson was asked whether he would ever help write for the show, he said, Thatd be beautiful, but youd have to spell. At the end of the panel, many audience members cheered, pumped their fists and gave a standing ovation. Mike Tyson Mysteries is slated to premiere this fall.Aretha Franklin slams serverNIAGARA FALLS, Ontario Aretha Franklin has some harsh words for a server who showed D-I-S-R-E-S-P-E-C-T. A spokesman for the Queen of Soul says the situation unfolded Tuesday at a Johnny Rockets restaurant on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. The spokesman says Franklin ordered a hamburger after performing a sold-out show. But he says the server screamed at Franklin, saying she couldnt sit down to eat because she ordered takeout. A Johnny Rockets spokeswoman says the franchise owner is sorry for the actions of a new and very young employee.Former WWE champ catches fleeing suspectPHOENIX A former WWE champion known as Daniel Bryan chased two burglary suspects he saw exiting his Phoenix home this week and subdued one until officers arrived, investigators said. According to police, Bryan Danielson and his wife, Brianna, drove into the carport of their Arcadia home and saw a door to the house start to open. Thats when Danielson and his wife, a fellow former WWE star known as Brie Bella, ran inside to check on their dog, Josie. Danielson and Cesar Sosa 22, got into a struggle, but the former champ subdued him until officers arrived, Phoenix police Sgt. Tommy Thompson said. The second suspect got away. Sosa was arrested and faces a burglary charge. I got really angry at first, Danielson said. Theyre actually lucky that I got them instead of Brie, because she probably would have been a little more violent.

action of the Cold War. By July, American troops had entered the war on South Koreas behalf. The armistice that came three years later would stave off a wider war with Russia and China. Although its called the Forgotten War, those who served will never forget. Local veteran Marine Jim Crouch was part of the invasion at Inchon Beach in September 1950 and survived a bloody battle at Ammo Hill on the way to Seoul and an even bloodier battle at Yong Dong Po. Others fought day and night, freezing in below-zero temperatures, wading through the waisthigh icy water of the Yalu River and getting trapped at the Chosin Reservoir, surrounded by multiple divisions of Chinese. Rudy Weddle, barely out of his teens, came face to face with an enemy soldier and his gun; he was shot and shot back. Weddle survived. The man he shot didnt. Others were taken as prisoners of war. Some escaped being captured. More than 8,000 American service members never returned. Crawford had volunteered to go to Korea in 1951 and arrived there the end of December. Assigned to the Army Corps of Engineers, he was a platoon leader, overseeing troops who removed live mines and booby traps, and worked on bridges. He was injured while replacing a destroyed floating bridge on the Imjin River. As for being forgotten, Crawford said theres a resurgence in awareness among Korean War veterans, mainly because of the Honor Flights and the World War II veterans who came before them. The World War II guys were heroes to everyone, he said. We exist between them, the Greatest Generation, and the Vietnam guys who were chastised, criticized and rendered asunder politically. ... But now the Honor Flights are open to the Korean War veterans, and thats good. We didnt have much recognition when we came back, he said. But we didnt ask for it, either.

According to CCSO documents on the sequence of Tabbs firing: He reportedly failed to report to work for three consecutive days while he was under investigation for the child sex abuse. He could not be reached by phone and never called in during those three days. After Tabbs attorney was notified of his clients termination, Tabb reportedly called in saying his father-in-law had a heart attack and that he was still in Missouri. A CCSO investigation concluded that Tabbs father-in-law did not have a heart attack and that Tabb had failed to return his noncustodial children to the biological father. And that it was finally revealed that Tabb and the children were vacationing in Orlando during the investigation. But Tabbs attorney insists his client did contact the agency and gave a good reason for being absent. This (Tabbs firing) was all about the charges and the sheriff office rushed to fire him before the charges were announced, Grant said. He said he has paperwork to back up his claims that CCSO did clever maneuvers to get rid of his client. Now the sheriff refuses to return Lynns calls. If they continue to act this way, we will sue the sheriffs office for wrongful termination and libel/slander for going on television and supplying the newspaper, saying all kinds of negative things about a good man, Grant said. Grant added that his client has been vindicated by having the charges against him dropped by prosecutors. According to a release from the sheriffs office at the time of Tabbs arrest and charges in 2012, officials said about a month and half earlier, a call was received by the Florida abuse hotline in which a third-party complainant alleged Tabb had physically abused a 5-year-old boy. The complainant also mentioned allegations that Tabb had sexually abused a young girl. The sheriffs offices child-protective investigators looked into the alleged physical abuse, which turned out to be unfounded. However, the alleged sexual abuse of a minor was turned over to the agencys Special Victims Unit, where Tabb previously worked, for followup. Dawsy said, at the time, FDLE was engaged to handle the case to avoid any scent of impropriety and also because the case was multijurisdictional with witnesses and alleged sex acts occurring outside of Citrus County as well as within the county, Dawsy said at the time. The alleged female victim is now an adult. According to the arrest warrant, the sexual abuse occurred on multiple occasions at different locations between January 2003 and December 2008. Tabb was hired by the sheriffs office in October 2003. He ended his employment in September 2006 and temporarily relocated to be with an ailing family member, according to the agency. He eventually returned to Citrus County and was rehired in August 2007. The sheriffs office said Tabbs prior disciplinary action included one instance of conduct unbecoming an officer that resulted from an internal affairs investigation in August 2010, when he received a suspension without pay, plus reassignment to road patrol. A second disciplinary action in September 2009 involved his repeated failure to properly follow up and document cases or respond to phone calls. He reportedly received a written reprimand and probation.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

SIDIBE/ChronicleChristina and Lynn Tabb discuss their legal troubles recently. Lynn Tabb, who was a deputy with the sheriffs office until a day before he was charged with sexually abusing his stepdaughter, said he wants to return to his old job now that charges stemming from that case have been dropped. However, sheriffs officials say Tabb was fired for not showing up for work for several days. LAWMANContinued from Page A1 now competing against Bev Howard to complete the final two years of the fouryear term Hale was elected to. The 56-year-old Lecanto resident is a former teacher at the Academy of Environmental Science and a member of the College of Central Florida Board of Trustees. She has a masters degree in educational leadership from the University of South Florida and a bachelor of arts degree in elementary education from St. Leo University. During an interview with the Chronicleeditorial board recently, Balfour said theres no hiding the fact that her school board position is a stepping stone in her quest to become superintendent. This is a great opportunity for me to get a deeper understanding of how the system works, she said. Its a great opportunity for me to develop relationships that are meaningful and to demonstrate support to staff. My running for superintendent is only because I see areas that only through experience can drive change. On other issues: When it comes to spending priorities in the district, Balfour believes teachers are those affected the most. We are losing instructional, leadership and support staff, with proven records of success, who possess deep levels of intellectual capital, at an alarming rate, she said. We must prioritize spending, evaluate needs and qualify our budgeting based on how the expenditures impact student achievement. Technology is a beneficial tool but mastery of basic skills is essential. It is important to meet the needs of preparing our students for their future by ensuring that an abundance of technology and resources are available for their use, however, we cannot comprise the development and mastery of basic skills, Balfour said. BALFOURContinued from Page A1 have been the final two years of Hales term. Howard has taught in Citrus County schools since 2001 and was the district Teacher of the Year in 2011. She has a masters of education degree from Grand Canyon University and bachelor of science degree in elementary education from Samford University. I made straight As in grad school and I was 62years old, she said. During an interview with the Chronicleeditorial board recently, Howard said voters should consider her for the position, in part, because she does not view the position as a resume-builder in a quest for higher office. Im older and I have more years of experience, she said. I have formed relationships with administrators throughout the district. Plus, this is not a stepping stone for any other job. I wont be thinking about the next step while in this position, if I am elected. On other issues: Howard said capital should be spent on the childrens future. The money should be spent on the kids so they are able to succeed, she said, adding that certain programs typically taken at Withlacoochee Technical Institute could be brought into high schools for students who do not pursue a postsecondary degree. She said if circumstances warrant, she would support a .25-mill tax increase for schools. It just depends on what great thing we are going to lose if we dont do it, Howard said. For example, if we were going to close Homosassa Elementary School because we didnt have funds, absolutely, I would support the school tax. HOWARDContinued from Page A1 North Korea fires short-range missile Associated PressSEOUL, South Korea North Korea fired a short-range ballistic missile into waters off its east coast on Saturday, a South Korean defense official said, adding to its unusually high number of weapons tests this year. The launch came on the eve of the 61st anniversary of the signing of an armistice that ended the Korean War. The missile, fired from North Koreas southwest Hwanghae province on Saturday evening, flew about 310 miles across the country before landing in the sea, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because of department rules. He gave no further details. North Korea routinely testfires missiles, artillery and rockets, but the number of weapons tests it has conducted this year is much higher than previous years. Outside analysts say this indicates that North Koreas young leader, Kim Jong Un, is handling things differently than his late father, Kim Jong Il, who sparingly used longer-range missile and nuclear tests as negotiating cards with the outside world to win concessions. Kim Jong Un inherited power upon his fathers death in December 2011. Analysts also say Kim Jong Un wont order troops to stop testing weapons unless rival South Korea and the U.S. make a major concession such as downsizing their regular joint military drills or conducting them in a low-key manner. Pyongyang calls the drills by Seoul and Washington a rehearsal for invasion, though the allies say they have no intention of attacking North Korea. Annual summertime exercises by South Korean and U.S. troops are slated for next month. Despite its continuing weapons tests, North Korea also has sent mixed signals by proposing measures that it says would lower tensions with the South, such as halting mutual slandering. South Korean officials have rebuffed the Norths overture, arguing that the North must first demonstrate how serious it is about nuclear disarmament. North Korea is seen by foreign observers as pushing for better ties with South Korea and other countries as a way to lure international investment and aid to revive the countrys stagnant economy. The Korean Peninsula remains in a technical state of war because the July27, 1953, armistice that ended the 1950-53 Korean War has yet to be replaced by a peace treaty. The U.S. has about 28,500 troops in South Korea to deter potential aggression from the North. Weapons tests increase in frequency

Associated PressVILLA PARK, Ill. Com paring their campaign to the civil rights movement, fast food workers from across the country voted Saturday to escalate their efforts for $15-an-hour pay and union membership to include nonviolent civil disobedience. More than 1,300 workers gathered in a convention center in suburban Chicago to discuss the future of a campaign that has spread to dozens of cities in less than two years. Wearing T-shirts that said Fight for $15 and We Are Worth More, the workers cheered loudly and said they would win if they stuck together. People are just fed up, said Cindy Enriquez, 20, of Phoenix. The $8.25 an hour she makes working for McDonalds is not enough to go to college and become a police officer and barely enough to pay her rent, Enriquez said. We need to ... get (restaurant owners) attention, perhaps with more strikes or blocking stores, she said. Were going to keep on going. The Service Employees International Union has been providing financial and organizational support to the fast-food protests. They began in late 2012 in New York City and have included daylong strikes and a loud but peaceful demonstration outside this years McDonalds Corp. shareholder meeting, where more than 130 protesters were arrested after stepping onto company property. Saturdays convention in Villa Park, Illinois, included sessions on civil disobedience and leadership training. Kendall Fells, an organizing director for the campaign and a representative of SEIU, said when and what actions happen next will be up to workers in each city. The Rev. William Barber II, head of the North Carolina NAACP, said the movement is young but as important as when civil disobedience efforts began during the early years of the Civil Rights Movement. People should not work and be willing to work and then be denied living wages and be denied health care because of greed, Barber said. This movement is saying that America is less than she promises to be, morally and constitutionally, by denying living wages, Barber said. If you raise wages for workers, you buoy the whole economy. The campaign comes as President Barack Obama and many other Democrats across the country have attempted to make a campaign issue out of their call to increase the federal and state minimum wages. The current federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour, translating to about $15,000 a year for someone working 40 hours a week, though many fastfood workers get far fewer hours. Obama and others have called for increasing it to $10.10. Fast food workers say even thats not enough because most people working in the industry now are adults with children, rather than teenagers earning pocket money. The restaurant industry has argued that a $15 hourly wage could lead to business closings and job cuts, though the Seattle City Council recently voted to raise the citys minimum wage to $15 an hour, phased in over several years. The National Restaurant Association said last week that increasing wages to $15 will not solve income inequality and that the campaign was an attempt by unions to boost dwindling membership. Scott DeFife, the associations executive vice president of policy and government affairs, said protesters were demonizing an industry that employs workers of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels, when the focus should be on policies that increase education and job training. But many people now are staying with fast-food restaurants for years, because theyre often the only ones available, workers said. Latoya Caldwell, a mother of four from Kansas City, Missouri, who earns $7.50 an hour at a Wendys restaurant, said she works six days a week at a Wendys restaurant to get 40 hours and earn a $435 paycheck. I might pay the mortgage, but then not be able to pay the light bill or pay the gas bill. Then I have to wait until the next check and not able to buy shoes or not able to buy diapers, Caldwell said. I just want to make sure we are able to live decent. Barber said workers such as Caldwell, whos participated in three strikes, are putting a face on the campaign for better wages. This movement is intensifying and it is going to shake the moral consciousness of this country, he said. Robert Purcell, 79CRYSTAL RIVERRobert (Bob) E. Purcell, 79, resident of Crystal River, Florida, died Monday, July21, 2014, quietly in his sleep. He was born in Orange, New Jersey, on April 21, 1935, the son of Henry Purcell and Mary (Barvian) Purcell. He graduated from Lyme Central High School in Chaumont, New York in 1953.

Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obamas request for billions of dollars to deal with migrant children streaming across the border set off Democrats and Republicans. Lawmakers in both parties complained that the White House six years in still doesnt get it when it comes to working with Congress. Top GOP leaders got no notice of the $3.7billion emergency request. The administration sent contradictory messages about what it wanted to deal with the border crisis. And as the proposal drew fierce criticism, the White House made few overtures to lawmakers in either party to rally support. House and Senate lawmakers in both parties plus several senior congressional aides said this past week that the handling of the proposal by Obama and the White House is emblematic of the administrations rocky relationship with Congress: an ad hoc approach that shuns appeals to opponents and doesnt reward allies. Combined with a divided Congress GOP-led House and Democratic-controlled Senate and election-year maneuvering, neither basic nor crisis-driven legislation is getting done. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., described the lack of communication between the White House and Congress as stunning. He said he first learned many details of Obamas border request from news reports. Obama is the only person in America who can sign something into law and help bring members of his party on board for an outcome on a given piece of legislation that requires bipartisan support, McConnell said in an interview. So its a mystery, but thats the way they operate. Several Democratic lawmakers echoed McConnell but spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid alienating the president of their party. They said they were baffled by the White Houses tactics in handling the border request. Several Democrats expressed frustration that the president and administration officials werent more involved in legislative fights. Obamas hands-off approach was evident in June. At a private White House meeting Obama held with the top four Republican and Democratic leaders in the House and Senate, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid appealed to the president to intervene in pressing McConnell to allow speedier approval of the presidents dozens of ambassadorial nominees. Obama said it was a matter for Reid and McConnell to work out, an answer that left Democrats flabbergasted, according to participants in the meeting. Finally, more than a week later, Obama called McConnell to urge him to break the logjam and get ambassadors confirmed. McConnell said the conversation one of the few he has had with Obama in recent months was limited to ambassadors. White House officials rejected the criticism, insisting that they have been regularly consulting with lawmakers. While frustrated with the administration, Democrats also sympathized. They described Obamas untenable position of trying to work with Republicans unwilling to give him any legislative victories, especially the tea party class of 2010. The White House has argued that even if it tried to cut a deal with House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio as it did in 2011 on entitlements, spending and taxes there was no assurance Boehner could deliver his rambunctious caucus. Youve got a core group of the House Republican caucus that has run on a platform of no compromise if the presidents for it, theyre against it, said Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md. Several Democrats said Obama must contend with GOP animosity, but so did former President Bill Clinton, who was undeterred through two terms. Obama held a few dinners with Senate Republicans last year, discussing budgets, entitlements and immigration over steak and coconut sorbet. Hopes for keeping a constructive conversation going have faded more than a year after the last dinner, and several participants have had little contact with Obama since. Faced with the arrival of more than 57,000 minors since October, mostly from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, Obama proposed $3.7billion in emergency spending to deal with the influx. Republicans pressed for changes to a 2008 trafficking victims law that would speed deportations of children from Central America. For days, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson privately told lawmakers he supported such a change, but the White House never pressed congressional Democrats about following through. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., criticized the White House strategy. I try never to negotiate against myself, thats all I can tell you, he said. More recently, the administration reached out to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., with a few suggested changes to the 2008 law. Its doubtful the issue will be resolved before Congress recesses for August. Congressional frustration with the administration is not limited to the White House. Democratic Rep. Gerry Connolly implored the State Department last month to weigh in on a bipartisan resolution calling on Turkey to return confiscated Christian property before a House panel voted on the measure. The Virginia lawmaker complained the resolution included gratuitous Turkeybashing and wanted State Department officials to help persuade lawmakers to support a toned-down version. None of his House colleagues heard from departments legislative liaisons. The State Department was missing in action, Connolly said in an interview. They have to professionalize their operation.

Associated PressASPEN, Colo. A series of unanswered questions about the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 shows the limits of U.S. intelligence gathering even when it is intensely focused, as it has been in Ukraine since Russia seized Crimea in March. Citing satellite imagery, intercepted conversations and social media postings, U.S. intelligence officials have been able to present what they call a solid circumstantial case that the plane was brought down by a Russian-made SA-11 surface-to-air missile fired by Russianbacked separatists in Eastern Ukraine. But they have not offered proof of what they say is their strong belief that the separatists obtained the sophisticated missile system from the Russian government. And they say they have not determined what, if any, involvement Russian operatives may have had in directing or encouraging the attack, which they believe was a mistaken attempt to hit a Ukrainian military aircraft. Moscow angrily denies any involvement in the attack; on Saturday the Russian Foreign Ministry accused the U.S. of waging an unrelenting campaign of slander against Russia, ever more relying on open lies. U.S. officials said they still dont know who fired the missile or whether Russian military officers were present when it happened. Determining that will take time, they said, if its possible at all. As one put it, this isnt referring to the TV series that often exaggerates the speed and capabilities of the American spying machine. On Friday, a U.S. intelligence official noted that intelligence agencies had been heavily involved in tracking the flow of weapons from Russian to Ukrainian separatists, and that available intelligence points to Russia as the source of the SA-11 that downed the jetliner. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence. Intelligence rarely meets the beyond a reasonable doubt standard required to convict in a U.S. court, said Michael Hayden, a former director of the CIA and the National Security Agency. We know what happened, he said in an interview while attending the Aspen Security Forum. Russia is responsible for the shootdown of the jet, regardless of a few of the finer details we have yet to determine. The Malaysian airline investigation illustrates the challenges facing the $80 billion-a-year U.S. intelligence apparatus, which is spread thin as it grapples with an increasingly unpredictable world. In the weeks after Russian troops took over the Ukrainian region of Crimea in March, U.S. intelligence agencies ramped up collection in the area, adding satellite and eavesdropping capability, said current and former U.S. officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss classified information. But spy satellites orbit the Earth and therefore dont offer persistent, hovering surveillance the way drones do. The U.S. does not appear to have captured an image of the missile being fired, officials say, although sensors detected the launch and analysts were able to determine the trajectory. Had an imagery sensor on a loworbiting satellite captured the launch, it could have produced intelligence-rich photos of plumes of smoke and the launch vehicle, said David Deptula, a retired Air Force general and expert on intelligence systems. A company called Skybox Imaging has been able to shoot short bursts of full-motion video from its satellites, so presumably the military also has that capability. But weapons can be hidden from satellites. Although U.S. analysts said they knew that tanks and other heavy weaponry were flowing from Russia to the separatists, officials said they were unaware that the separatists possessed working SA-11 missiles, which can hit aircraft flying at high altitudes, until after the passenger jet was shot down. Credible human sources are the holy grail of intelligence gathering, but the CIA, which has a mediumsized station in Kiev, was not in a position to recruit informants quickly among the separatists in what is essentially a war zone, officials said. What the CIA did instead was to step up its cooperation with Ukrainian intelligence, despite concerns that the Ukrainian service is penetrated by the Russians. Key portions of the intelligence cited by U.S. officials as showing that separatists were responsible for bringing down the plane were provided by the Ukrainians, including intercepts of conversations that were verified by U.S. analysts. Officials said social media postings available to analysts in the U.S. have also helped. The Russian ministry slammed that line of evidence gathering, contending the Washington regime is basing its contentions on anti-Russian speculation gathered from the Internet that does not correspond to reality. Cops: Drunk driver ran over pal SETAUKET, N.Y. Police in New York say an inebriated man ran over and killed a friend who had climbed out of his car and started walking home because she was worried he was drunk. The accident happened at around 4 a.m. Saturday in Setauket on Long Island. Suffolk County police say 23-year-old Lawrence Pagano called 911 after his car struck 21-year-old Krystal Berkowitz. Police determined that Berkowitz had gotten out of Paganos car and had begun walking home. Police say Pagano tried to pull over to talk to Berkowitz but instead hit her with his vehicle. Berkowitz, of Stony Brook, was pronounced dead at the scene. Pagano, of Coram, was arrested on a charge of driving while intoxicated. It wasnt immediately clear if Pagano had an attorney.Clear rules sought for musical items PROVIDENCE, R.I. The government should clarify federal rules about bringing musical instruments on to commercial flights as carry-on luggage, U.S. Sen. Jack Reed said, after a report of problems encountered by a band flying to Rhode Island for the Newport Folk Festival. In a letter sent Friday, the Rhode Island Democrat urged U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx to speed implementation of a 2012 law that requires commercial air carriers to allow musical instruments as carry-on items as long as they can be safely stowed in the aircraft cabin. But Reed said the law has not taken effect because the Department of Transportation has yet to adopt the specific rules needed for the provision.A10SUNDAY, JULY27, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION\WORLD 2014 BACK TO SCHOOL GIVEAWAY Enter to Win a $25 Staples Gift Card 8 Winners ----Enter to Win July 15 thru July 30, 2014 Winners will be notified on July 31, 2014 THESE LOCATIONS ONLY 1926 U.S. Hwy. 19, Holiday (727)937-9977 324 SE U.S. Hwy. 19, Crystal River (352) 795-1122 000IUY5 No Purchase Necessary 000IOTN NationBRIEFS From wire reports US faces intel hurdles Associated PressA car drives past a tail of a missile Saturday in the city of Lisichansk, Luhansk region, eastern Ukraine.

DAVIDCRARY AP national writerNervous but determined, the 15-year-old boy walked into a conference room in Columbus, Ohio, for a fateful interview. If it went well, perhaps hed have a chance to be the first member of his impoverished family to attend college. That was 34 years ago, but Wil Haygood the renowned journalist and author whose writing inspired the film The Butler says he remembers it like it was yesterday. I knew in my heart and soul that this was a monumental moment for little Wil Haygood, he recalled. At stake was a place in Upward Bound founded as an experimental program in 1964 as part of Lyndon B. Johnsons War on Poverty with the goal of helping students from lowincome families get a college education. A few weeks after his interview, Haygood received a letter accepting him in the Upward Bound college prep program taking place that summer of 1970 on the campus of Ohio Dominican University. The college wasnt but a few miles from our housing project, but as a poor kid, you never set foot there, Haygood said. It was as if I had been lifted up and taken to an oasis. Haygood flourished during three summers in the federally funded program and credits the professors there and their toughlove approach with girding him to succeed in college. They didnt allow us to make excuses because we were black or poor, he said. They said when you get to college, it will be 10 times harder. Haygood went on to thrive at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, graduating in 1976 and returning last year to give the commencement speech. This summer marks the 50th anniversary of Upward Bound. It served 2,061 participants at 17 locations in 1965; last year, it served about 76,000 students at more than 1,000 locations in 50 states. In all, more than 2million people have participated studying English literature and composition, math and science, and getting practical advice on college admissions. Upward Bound alumni include Oprah Winfrey, actresses Viola Davis and Angela Bassett, ABC News correspondent John Quinones, and Democratic political strategist Donna Brazile. Its a 50-year-old program that continues to pay back giving us hope, and teaching so many lessons along the way, said Maureen Hoyler, president of the Council for Opportunity in Education. The nonprofit council, formed in 1981, represents more than 1,000 colleges and agencies that have supported Upward Bound and its affiliated programs. One of the keys to Upward Bounds success is that its local programs are conducted at college campuses, whether its afterschool and weekend sessions during the school year or residential summer programs. The fact that we get to live on campus is really cool it gives you an idea of what college is like, said Ruthy Pierre, a 16year-old New Yorker attending a second summer of Upward Bound. Her program is run by John Jay College of Criminal Justice and hosted during the summer by the College of Mount Saint Vincent on a verdant campus in the Bronx overlooking the Hudson River. Ruthy, of American and Haitian descent, lives with her single mom and will be a junior this fall at Information Technology High School in Queens. She aspires to be a lawyer, but hasnt ruled out a mid-career switch to being a chef. Upward Bound, she says, opens up opportunities we wouldnt get otherwise. Among her 56 classmates in the six-week summer program was Corinne Lopez, 15, who hopes for a career combining her interests in graphic arts and forensic science. Her parents came to the U.S. from South America with college educations, but have struggled to find commensurate jobs in New York; Corinnes father works as a doorman in Manhattan. Its been hard for them, Corrine said. Ive had everything given to me. I have to return the favor graduate, become successful and help them in the future. The summer programs schedule is intensive, with classes and study halls filling most of the day on Mondays through Thursdays before the students go home for three-day weekends. Karen Texeira whos directed the John Jay program for 25 years makes sure to include a few outings, such as this summers foray to Broadway to see Motown: The Musical. She encourages the students to have fun amid all the hard work, though some rules are strictly enforced. Theres automatic expulsion, for example, for any boy or girl found in the dorm rooms reserved for the opposite sex. Texeiras second-incommand is counselor Omar Abdullah, 32, who grew up in Harlem, was an Upward Bound student himself in the late 1990s, and is now pursuing a masters degree in public administration. Before I did Upward Bound, I was really shy too shy to place an order at McDonalds, he said. At Upward Bound, you had to break out of that shell. What I took out of it especially was the friendships. Its like a family to us 24 hours a day, four days a week, he said. The last day of the program, kids are crying. Some of them dont want to go home. Throughout its history, Upward Bound has compiled a strong record of success. Of the students who take part for at least three years, more than 90percent go directly to college after completing high school. That level of performance has earned Upward Bound strong bipartisan support in Congress, yet the program nonetheless faces fiscal challenges because of the broader turmoil on Capitol Hill. The programs budget, which started out at $6million 50 years ago, reached an all-time high of almost $327million in 2012, but was trimmed by about 5percent last year along with many other federal programs. As a result, enrollment dropped to 75,996 students, down from an all-time high of 79,672 in 2012. How do you do more with less? asked Maureen Hoyler, describing a budget-related struggle to recruit and train professional staff capable of overseeing the academic program and providing advice on how to get into college, pay for it, and flourish while there. She said Upward Boards role in college guidance has become increasingly crucial as many of the high schools supplying students to the program have cut back on their own guidance efforts. We want our students to make an informed choice, Hoyler said. We also want them to stay in college once they go. They need to be able to ask for help. As mandated by Congress, two-thirds of Upward Bound students must come from families with incomes at or below 150percent of the federal poverty level and in which neither parent graduated from college. Some are homeless or live in group homes or foster homes, and about 75percent are minorities. Lois Vosika-Weir, who grew up in a low-income housing project in Minneapolis, is among many Upward Bound alumni with an abiding gratitude to the program. Her mother had four children by the age of 24 and was pregnant with a fifth when her husband deserted the family. I was not doing well at all in school, Vosika-Weir said. My mom found out about Upward Bound and basically had to drag me in there kicking and screaming. When she started the program as a ninth-grader in 1974, she was reading at fourth-grade level. Yet she was warmly welcomed. It sounds clichd, but the adults met me where I was at, said Vosika-Weir, whose voice cracked with emotion in a telephone interview as she recalled those days. The director said to me, Youre smart. At the time I didnt feel smart. ... The people there gave me the confidence I needed to keep putting one foot in front of the other. The support never wavered, even when she became pregnant as a 16-year-old. She was accepted at the University of Minnesota, got her bachelors degree, went on to get a masters degree in psychology, and now, at 55, is an assistant principal at the American Indian Magnet School in St. Paul. Her three children all have college degrees, including a son pursuing a doctorate in physics. Upward Bound was the catalyst, she said.

Associated PressABUJA, Nigeria Nigerian health authorities raced to stop the spread of Ebola on Saturday after a man sick with one of the worlds deadliest diseases brought it by plane to Lagos, Africas largest city with 21 million people. The fact that the traveler from Liberia could board an international flight also raised new fears that other passengers could take the disease beyond Africa due to weak inspection of passengers and because Ebolas symptoms are similar to other diseases. Officials in the country of Togo, where the sick mans flight had a stopover, also went on high alert after learning that Ebola could possibly have spread to a fifth country. Screening people as they enter the country may help slow the spread of the disease, but it is no guarantee Ebola wont travel by airplane, according to Dr. Lance Plyler, who heads Ebola medical efforts in Liberia for aid organization Samaritans Purse. Unfortunately, the initial signs of Ebola imitate other diseases, like malaria or typhoid, he said. Ebola already had caused some 672 deaths across a wide swath of West Africa before the Nigeria case was announced. It is the deadliest outbreak on record for Ebola, and now it threatens Nigeria, Africas most populous nation. An outbreak in Lagos, Africas megacity where many live in cramped conditions, could be a major disaster. Lagos is completely different from other cities because were talking about millions of people, said Plan Internationals Disaster Response and Preparedness Head, Dr. Unni Krishnan. Nigerian newspapers describe the effort as a scramble to contain the threat after the Liberian arrived in Lagos and then died Friday. International airports in Nigeria are screening passengers arriving from foreign countries for symptoms of Ebola, according to Yakubu Dati, the spokesman for Federal Aviation Authority of Nigeria. Health officials are also working with ports and land borders, he said. They are giving out information in terms of enlightenment, what to do, what to look out for. And Nigerian airports are setting up holding rooms to ready in case another potential Ebola victim lands in Nigeria. Airports in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, the three other West African countries affected by the current Ebola outbreak, have implemented some preventive measures, according to officials in those countries. But none of the safeguards are foolproof, say health experts. Doctors say health screens could be effective, but Ebola has a variable incubation period of between two and 21 days and cannot be diagnosed on the spot. Patrick Sawyer, a consultant for the Liberian Ministry of Finance arrived in Nigeria on Tuesday and was immediately detained by health authorities suspecting he might have Ebola, Plyler said. On his way to Lagos, Sawyers plane also stopped in Lome, Togo, according to the World Health Organization. Authorities announced Friday that blood tests from the Lagos University Teaching Hospital confirmed Sawyer died of Ebola earlier that day. Sawyer reportedly did not show Ebola symptoms when he boarded the plane, Plyler said, but by the time he arrived in Nigeria he was vomiting and had diarrhea. There has not been another recently recorded case of Ebola spreading through air travel, he added. Nearly 50 other passengers on the flight are being monitored for signs of Ebola but are not being kept in isolation, said an employee at Nigerias Ministry of Health, who insisted on anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press. Sawyers sister also died of Ebola in Liberia, according to Liberian officials, but he claimed to have had no contact with her. Ebola is highly contagious and kills more than 70 percent of people infected. Ebola is passed by touching bodily fluids of patients even after they die, he said. Traditional burials that include rubbing the bodies of the dead contribute to the spread of the disease, Krishnan added. There is no magic bullet cure for Ebola, but early detection and treatment of fluids and nutrition can be effective, said Plyler in Liberia. Quickly isolating patients who show symptoms is also crucial in slowing the spread of the disease. West African hospital systems have weak and often paralyzed health care systems, he added, and are not usually equipped to handle Ebola outbreaks. International aid organizations like his and Doctors Without Borders have stepped in, but they also lack enough funding and manpower. We need more humanitarian workers, he said. We need resources.A12SUNDAY, JULY27, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWORLD DONT WALL YOUR BUSINESS OFF FROM YOUR CUSTOMERSFor more information on how to keep your business in front of your customers, call 352-563-5592. 000IE1O CANVAS PRODUCTS Awnings Carports Repairs SHADY VIEW CANVAS 6828 S.

Police ID kids killed in carjacking crashPHILADELPHIA Two carjackers who fled after ramming a stolen SUV into a family selling fruit for their church, killing three young siblings, were still on the run Saturday as the reward for their capture topped $100,000. The childrens 34-year-old mother, Keisha Williams, remained in critical condition at Temple University Hospital. Her slain children were identified as 15-year-old Keiearra Williams, 10-yearold Thomas Reed and 7year-old Terrence Moore. The two suspects fled on foot after crashing the stolen car Friday morning at a North Philadelphia intersection. They had first carjacked a real estate agent at gunpoint and later forced her into the back seat of her SUV, authorities said. The 45-year-old agent was also hospitalized afterward, as was a 65-year-old woman helping the family with the fruit stand. Their names werent being released, and their conditions werent immediately available Saturday.Boeing CEO sorry for cowering remarkSEATTLE Boeing Co. CEO Jim McNerney apologized Friday for saying the aerospace giants employees were cowering during his tenure, a comment one union official called a new low in the companys relationship with workers. McNerney made the remark during a Wednesday call with analysts when he was asked if he is thinking about retiring after he turns 65 next month. McNerney said he wont retire because the heart will still be beating, the employees will still be cowering, the Seattle Times reported. In an apology sent companywide, McNerney said the comment made during a call about the companys quarterly results was a joke gone bad. Boeing employees and union leaders didnt find it funny. Machinists union international President Tom Buffenbarger issued a statement Friday saying the unfunny and unnecessary remarks serve as a reminder that the Jack Welch style of antipersonnel management is still alive and well at Boeing. If he is able to get his foot out of his mouth, the very next thing we hear from Mr. McNerney should be a sincere apology to all employees at Boeing, Buffenbarger added. Jon Holden, president of Machinists District 751, described it as a new low in employee-company relations. The union that represents engineers, the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace, posted a printable, foldable poster on their website saying, If Im away from my desk, then I must be cowering somewhere. Please leave a note.

The Taliban attacks focused on Kandahar province, where Taliban fighters killed six police officers including a district police chief in assaults on some 15 checkpoints, said Dawa Khan Menapal, a spokesman for the provincial governor. In Helmand province, a bomb hidden inside a motorcycle killed four civilians and wounded four others in Marjah district, said Omer Zwak, a spokesman for the governor of Helmand province.

World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressPalestinian Mukaram Keferna cries Saturday upon her return to what was the family house, destroyed by Israeli strikes in Beit Hanoun, northern Gaza Strip. Associated PressWASHINGTON The United States shuttered its embassy in Libya on Saturday and evacuated its diplomats to neighboring Tunisia under U.S. military escort as fighting intensified between rival militias. Secretary of State John Kerry said freewheeling militia violence prompted the move. American personnel at the Tripoli embassy, which had already been operating with limited staffing, left the capital around dawn and traveled by road to neighboring Tunisia, with U.S. fighter jets and other aircraft providing protection, the State Department said. The withdrawal underscored the Obama administrations concern about the heightened risk to American diplomats abroad, particularly in Libya, where memories of the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in the eastern city of Benghazi are still vivid. The evacuation was accompanied by a new State Department travel warning for Libya urging Americans not to go to the country and recommending that those already there leave immediately. The Libyan government has not been able to adequately build its military and police forces and improve security, it said. Many military-grade weapons remain in the hands of private individuals, including anti-aircraft weapons that may be used against civilian aviation. Speaking Saturday in Paris where he was meeting with other diplomats on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Kerry said the U.S. remains committed to the diplomatic process in Libya despite the suspension of embassy activities there. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said the evacuated employees will continue to work on Libyan issues in Tunis, elsewhere in North Africa and Washington. Securing our facilities and ensuring the safety of our personnel are top department priorities, and we did not make this decision lightly, Harf said. Security has to come first. Regrettably, we had to take this step because the location of our embassy is in very close proximity to intense fighting and ongoing violence between armed Libyan factions. The Pentagon said in statement that F-16 fighter jets and other U.S. aircraft provided security. The mission was conducted without incident, and the entire operation lasted approximately five hours, the statement said. The State Department said embassy operations will be suspended until a determination is made that the security situation has improved. Tripoli has been embroiled for weeks in intermilitia violence that has killed and wounded dozens. The U.S. is the latest in a number of countries to have closed diplomatic operations in Libya. Turkey on Friday announced that it had shut its embassy and militia clashes in Benghazi have prompted the United Nations, aid groups and foreign envoys to leave. Associated PressSmoke rises from the direction of Tripoli airport July 13 in Tripoli, Libya. The United States shut down its embassy in Libya on Saturday and evacuated its diplomats to neighboring Tunisia under U.S. military escort amid a significant deterioration in security in Tripoli as fighting intensified between rival militias, the State Department said. US evacuates embassy in Libya amid clashes Israeli Cabinet extends truce until midnight Sunday Associated PressBEIT HANOUN, Gaza StripHamas resumed rocket fire Saturday on Israel after rejecting Israels offer to extend a humanitarian cease-fire, the latest setback in international efforts to negotiate an end to the Gaza war. Despite the Hamas rejection, Israels Cabinet decided to extend a truce for 24 hours, until midnight Sunday. However, it warned that its military would respond to any fire from Gaza and would continue to demolish Hamas military tunnels during this period. The temporary lull on Saturday saw Palestinians return to neighborhoods reduced to rubble and allowed medics to collect close to 150 bodies, Palestinian health official Ashraf al-Kidra said. With the retrieval of the corpses, the number of Palestinians killed reached 1,047 in 19 days of fighting, while more than 6,000 were wounded, he said. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and European foreign ministers, meeting in Paris, had hoped to transform the cease-fire into a more sustainable truce. That effort was thrown into doubt with the Hamas rejection of the extension. Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said any truce must include a withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza, and that tens of thousands of displaced people must be allowed to return to their homes. Israels current terms are not acceptable, he said in a text message to journalists. In the northern Gaza town of Beit Hanoun, scores of homes had been pulverized, wreckage blocked roads and power cables dangled in the streets. Hardest hit were areas close to the border with Israel, areas from where Gaza militants typically fire rockets. Manal Kefarneh, 30, wept as she inspected her damaged home. On an unfinished top floor, she and her husband had been raising chickens. The couple collected the dead and replenished water for the living in hopes they will survive the war. What did we do to deserve this? she asked. All of the Arab leaders watch whats going on here like its a Bollywood film. Across Gaza, 147 bodies were pulled from the rubble Saturday, officials said. In southern Gaza, a tank shell killed 20 members of an extended family who sought refuge inside a building, al-Kidra said. Israel has lost 42 soldiers and two civilians, and a Thai worker has been killed. Associated PressDONETSK, Ukraine Ukrainian officials said their forces advanced to the outskirts of a key town north of Donetsk on Saturday as they try to retake the stronghold held for months by pro-Russia rebels. The move comes as Ukrainian forces appear to have gained some momentum recently by retaking control of territory from the rebels. But Russia also appears to becoming more involved in the fighting, with the U.S. and Ukraine accusing Moscow of moving heavily artillery across the border to the rebels. Ukrainian national security spokesman Andriy Lysenko said Ukrainian forces were outside Horlikva, just north of the regional center of Donetsk. Once they can take Horlivka, the direct route is open for the forces of the anti-terrorist operation to the capital of the Donbass region the city of Donetsk, Lysenko said. Donetsk, a city of about 1 million people, is a major center of the separatist uprising. An Associated Press reporter found the highway north of Donetsk blocked by rebels and heard the sound of artillery to the north. Explosions were heard in the direction of the towns airport, on the northwest edge of the city, an area frequently contested by Ukrainian forces and rebels. Meanwhile, CNN reported that a Ukrainian freelancer who had been detained by separatists was freed on Saturday. The journalist, Anton Skiba, was seized Tuesday in the rebelcontrolled city of Donetsk when he and other members of a TV crew returned to a hotel after working at the site of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.

EXCURSIONS Page A15SUNDAY, JULY 27, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE START YOUR RESEARCH Travel agents can recommend tour companies to match your interests and demographics. One place to start your own research is USTOA.com, the website of the U.S. Tour Operators Association, which represents 160 brands, including overseas companies with U.S. offices. USTOA.coms Find your dream vacation widget lets you search by destination, tour company and activity. Tour listings at TourRadar.com also include ratings for comfort level and how physically demanding tours are. And many of TourRadars partners include age recommendations. Topdeck tours, for example, list an 18-39 age range because they cater to a young party crowd. TourRadar also embeds reviews from recent travelers along with messages about upcoming departures. Comments like Who is ready to party on this trip? and Im stoked! show the vibe for an Amalfi Coast trip. TourRadars Meet app helps travelers connect with others on the same itinerary with comments like, Well be in Rio a few days early, anyone keen to join us to see some sights? WHAT YOU GET FOR YOUR MONEY Most group tours cover all hotels, guides, transportation to places on the itinerary and admission to attractions though activities like zip lining may be extra. Most meals are usually covered too, but ask what, if any, are not. If you want more than standard fare, ask: Is breakfast and dinner taken in the hotel every day, at chain restaurants, or at mom-and-pop cafes? The larger the group, the harder it is to dine in small, offbeat eateries. Airfare to and from your home city is not included in tour costs. The two biggest cost factors in any tour, according to USTOA President Terry Dale, are group size and type of accommodations. An intimate group tour with eight or 10 travelers staying at fourand fivestar hotels can easily be four times the cost of a large group in three-star lodging. Budget tours sometimes save money by booking hotels outside city centers. That makes it difficult to explore on your own when theres downtime, so ask whether accommodations are in central locations, near major attractions or outside of town. Time of year affects price, too. Holidays and summer when youre competing with kids on school vacation are usually more expensive. Fall is often cheapest except for places like New England where fall foliage is a draw. Unlike cruises and hotels, group tours dont usually have last-minute deals, but booking well ahead may get you a discount. Pick a few companies, subscribe to newsletters and follow them on Facebook to watch for deals. As for tipping guides, some luxury tours include tips, Dale says, but most tours suggest tipping 3 percent to 5 percent of the trip cost, or $6-$8 per day for tour managers, and around $4 a day for local guides. INTERESTS AND ACTIVITY LEVELS You may think nothing of walking a few miles or spending hours on your feet exploring new places. But thats not realistic if youre normally sedentary or have physical limitations. So ask: Does the tour offer sightseeing mostly through bus windows, by trekking up mountain trails, or by walking around? Group tours cover every interest under the sun, from volunteering, photography, wineries, history and the arts, to winter sports, biking, hiking and wildlife. If youre a foodie, look for culinary themes, where you might meet a chef, visit markets and farms, or dine in someones home. Even for classic itineraries, theres a range of options, from check-the-box visits to top 10 attractions, to behind-the-scenes meetings. THE DREADED SINGLE SUPPLEMENT Solo travelers usually pay more because they are single occupants in hotel rooms designed for two. Single supplements can raise tour prices. Some companies help single travelers find compatible roommates. Friendly Planet Travel has a roommate-matching service introducing like-minded solo travelers booked on the same trips. If, after speaking by phone or meeting, single travelers think theyre compatible, they can share a room, saving up to $500 a person, according to Friendly Planet President Peggy Goldman. Solos can also look for roommates on Friendly Planets Facebook page. Cosmos tours offers travelers the option to share a room. TourRadar.coms Meet app also allows single travelers to connect. And because many of TourRadars operators are geared to younger travelers, accommodations range from hostels to tents that easily accommodate solo travelers.

A16SUNDAY, JULY27, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: Several months ago, my husband and I moved to the Ozarks after falling in love with the area. We left behind a lot of dear friends and the life we had known for 25 years, but we are quite happy here. The only sadness is my brother. He and his wife still live in the town we left. When I told him we were moving out of state, he said we shouldnt because of our health issues. Yet when I had two major surgeries, he never once bothered to drive the five minutes to the hospital or come by my house afterward. He never offered to help us pack for the move or assist in driving our truck. In the nine months we have lived here, my brother has not called one time. I phoned on his birthday and for holidays. Each time, he said he was thinking of calling. My husband and I have no children. My brother is my only family. He told me a few years ago that he is depressed. I am sure it began when his best friend died. He did get medication from his doctor, but it obviously did little good. I am hurt that my big brother has written me off. We never got together much when we lived in the same town, but at least he would call once in a while and come by. I have decided that the next move is up to him. I know of nothing that will make my brother call me, so I can only sit here and hope. Any suggestions? Hurting Little Sis in Branson, Mo. Dear Hurting: You are expecting a great deal from a brother who apparently suffers from depression and has never been particularly good at staying in touch.

Page A18SUNDAY, JULY 27, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE VETERANS C.J. RISAK CorrespondentNolan Sassard has done a lot of traveling in his life, a great deal of it covering the central Florida area. Its surprising considering his pace has not slackened, even though on July 27 thats today he will turn 90.I just dont like to sit at home, Sassard said insistently. Im not going to sit in the house 24 hours a day. But no matter how far Sassards travels take him, he always ends up back in the same place. That place is Red Level, a small Citrus County community just north of Crystal River. Its where Sassard has lived his life. Thing is, of all his journeys throughout his life, the one that took him the furthest started when he was still in high school. That was in April 1943, when he enlisted in the U.S. Army. He would eventually travel to England a year after his enlistment, from there taking a short boat trip across the English Channel to take part in the landings at Normandy. Sassard and his 378th Infantry Regiment would end up fighting across northern France and into Luxembourg, Belgium and eventually Germany. But perhapsit was his first step toward that conquest of Western Europe that was most memorable which was back in Normandy. I was in the (second wave) and they were fighting everywhere, he recalled. I was the first one to get off the boat, I was supposed to be. There was a ramp there, and when I got off I tripped and fell. I wound up being the last one getting off the boat. I mean, they all just walked right over me and on out. I didnt get wounded or nothing there. Once I got off, we had to hide because there was fighting going on everywhere. It would take the Allies more than two months to fight their way across northern France. For Sassard, the peril involved was magnified as his companys first scout. All the fellows are behind you, and the first scout is way out ahead, sneaking around and seeing what he can see, Sassard said. If everything is all right, you make a motion and they come up. Then you sneak out ahead again, and if you see something you let them know, and we come up and start shooting. That constant threat of battle would remain as they fought their way through France, including what was supposed to be a rest period in the Ardennes. But thats where the Germans decided to launch their biggest offensive action of the war on the western front. Its also where Sassard survived a very close call. I was in a trench (about chest deep), and I had two buddies come up and say, Were out of ammunition, do you have any? I said I dont have very much, but we took what ammunition I had and divided it up between the three of us. They turned and walked away, and just as they walked away one of those bombs from one of those big cannons, it hit the ground about this far in front of me (a yard). It completely covered me up, so they say, and those two fellows came back and had to come dig me out. I dont know what all went on because I was out. They put me on a jeep and carried me to a doctor or something and I stayed there a few days. Sassard ended up with bomb fragments in his legs, which would earn him a Purple Heart. He also collected a Good Conduct Medal and a World War II Victory Medal for his time in the service. He would fight in the Rhineland in Germany before the war ended. He was discharged in November 1945, returning home to finish high school. Sassard would spend most of his career working for Florida Power. And a large portion of his leisure time was, and still is, spent on the road. STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleArmy veteran Nolan Sassard, 90, shows off the Ferris wheel he made after retiring from woodworking in 2007. Sassard served in France and Germany from 1943 through the end of World War II as first scout for the 10th Army Division. He entered Europe at Normandy and was involved in the Battle of the Bulge. These days, he enjoys driving his car 100 to 250 miles each day enjoying the scenery and keeping a lookout for deer and turkey.

Columbia, trailing only the Washington Monument and a Roman Catholic basilica, and it offers rare panoramic views of downtown. Built to house the U.S. Post Office Department headquarters, the Romanesque Revival building has been underutilized in recent years, housing small vendors that catered mostly to tourists. The Trump Organization won a $200 million contract with the federal government to turn it into a luxury hotel with 270 guest rooms and suites, restaurants, retail and a 13,000-square-foot ballroom. Trump hopes the renovation will be finished in mid-2016, before the next presidential election. Its really the best location in D.C. by far. I mean, everybody acknowledges that, Trump said in an interview after the ceremony. Were going to do a building the likes of which D.C. has never seen. I think it will be one of the fine hotels anywhere in the world, and maybe the finest. Trump, a Republican, has openly pondered a presidential bid on multiple occasions. Asked whether building a hotel so close to the White House would rekindle his political ambitions, Trump said only that he wanted to share his vision of success with the nations capital. It will show how to get things done because we know how to build, we know how to create beautiful things, important things, and we know how to create jobs, he said. Thats what the country has to be doing. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, a Democrat who represents the District in Congress, has led the push to renovate the building and said the government has found ideal partners in Trump and his daughter Ivanka, the lead developer on the project. Look at what the Old Post Office had been reduced to something of an ugly duckling on Pennsylvania Avenue, Norton said. I think were about to see the grand old lady back in her iconic glory. Because the building will become a Trump International Hotel, it will carry Trumps name, but with more subtlety than hes known for. The name will be on it somewhere, Trump said, but it will be discreet.

Baseball/ B2 Sports briefs/ B3 Scoreboard/B3 Lottery, TV/B3 Golf/B4 Recreation/B4 Blue Jays end losing streak at Yankee Stadium./B2 SPORTSSection BSUNDAY, JULY 27, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE 000IPN9 Associated PressPERIGUEUX, France Finally cracking broad smiles after weeks of no-nonsense racing, Vincenzo Nibali confirmed he will win the Tour de France after another impressive ride in a dramatic penultimate stage on Saturday. Nibali all but ensured he will be crowned Tour champion for the first time thanks to winning the last mountain stage on Thursday. But a desire to leave nothing to chance, even with the biggest overall lead in 17 years, saw him push himself in the individual time trial for fourth place behind winner and German speedster Tony Martin. In doing so, the rider they call The Shark padded his overall lead on Stage 20 by more than 40 seconds to nearly eight minutes. He grabbed the yellow jersey on Stage 2 almost three weeks ago, and has worn it for all but two stages. A largely ceremonial final ride into Paris awaits today. Its really difficult to explain all the emotions that Ive gone through in these last three weeks. But as time goes by, maybe Ill find the words to describe what Im feeling, Nibali said through a translator. Perhaps on the Champs-Elysees, Ill realize a little bit more. This year was a great race. It was almost made to measure for me, he said of the ride through the hills and dales of Yorkshire, England, over cobblestones in northern France, and over mountain passes in the Alps and Pyrenees. For days, Nibalis domination has reduced the drama to who would join him on the final podium on Sunday. The Stage 20 time trial solved that: Jean-Christophe Peraud and Thibaut Pinot. They will be the first Frenchman to medal in Frances beloved race since Richard Virenque in 1997. Nibali set to win Tour, with two Frenchmen on podium Italys Vincenzo Nibali, wearing the overall leader's yellow jersey, rides during the twentieth stage of the Tour de France Saturday, an individual time-trial of 33.6 miles starting in Bergerac and finishing in Perigueux. Associated Press See TOUR DE FRANCE/ Page B3 Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Ben Zobrist homered, Matt Joyce and Kevin Kiermaier each had an RBI single, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the skidding Boston Red Sox 3-0 Saturday night for their ninth consecutive victory. The stretch is the secondlongest in team history, three short of a 12-game winning streak in June 2004. John Lackey (11-7) came up short in his first attempt to earn his 150th win, giving up three runs and eight hits over seven innings. Before the game, the Red Sox traded right-hander Jake Peavy and cash to San Francisco for minor league pitchers Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree. Boston, last in the AL East one season after winning the World Series, has lost five straight. I have to say its been a disappointing week. A little surprising even, general manager Ben Cherington said. Anything we do between now and Thursday afternoon will be with a mind toward building as quickly as possible towards April of 2015. The non-waiver trade deadline is Thursday. Zobrist made it 3-0 with his seventh-inning shot. Grant Balfour (1-3) went 1 2/3 innings for the win, and Jake McGee pitched the ninth for his 11th save. Jeremy Hellickson, coming back from right elbow surgery and making his second start this season, gave up five hits over 4 2/3 innings. Jeff Beliveau replaced Hellickson with a runner on and retired David Ortiz on a hard liner to first. Desmond Jennings had a bunt single in the first inning and advanced to third on catcher Christian Vazquezs errant throw. Boston manager John Farrell appeared to argue with plate umpire Chad Fairchild about Jennings route to first, but the call stood.Torre, Cox and La Russa manage their way into Hall Associated PRessCOOPERSTOWN, N.Y. Joe Torre still needs a pinch or two, just to make sure. Its still sort of unbelievable, he said. Cooperstown was always something way out there. OK, I know where it is. Doesnt mean Im going there to visit, much less be inducted. I never had a goal of getting to the Hall of Fame. Thats exactly where hes headed today. Torre will be inducted with fellow former managers Bobby Cox and Tony La Russa in what is a banner year for the baseball shrine. Pitchers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine and slugger Frank Thomas also will enter. Torre, La Russa and Cox were unanimously elected in December by the Halls Expansion Era committee. It was a tense time for Torre. I sort of was torn emotionally with the fact that Bobby and Tony were on the ballot, he said. I remember having dinner with Tony the night before the announcement. Whoever gets in, if the other one doesnt get in, its sort of going to feel unfair. Our three careers just really mirrored each other. When the three of us got in, I think it just made it that much sweeter. It was probably the first time we stopped lying to each other, he said. Theres always been a mutual admiration among La Russa, Cox and Torre, contemporaries who rank third, fourth and fifth, respectively, in all-time managerial wins. I always felt like Joe was the best at teaching a team the right way to win and lose, said La Russa, who compiled 2,728 wins in 33 seasons with the Chicago White Sox, Oakland and St. Louis, behind only Connie Mack (3,731) and John McGraw (2,763). A loss, they never made excuses. Just got beat. But they won. They won a lot, and they never showed up the other side, La Russa said. They never embarrassed you because they beat you, and I cant say the same for other teams and other managers. While Torre excelled as a player in 1971 he won National League MVP honors with a signature season that included 230 hits and a .363 average, 97 runs, and 137 RBIs for the Cardinals he became something special in the New York Yankees dugout. Despite mediocre stints managing the New York Mets, Atlanta and the Cardinals (five winning seasons in 15 years), Torre was hired by the Yankees prior to the 1996 season. That was a good sign for me, trust me, said Torre, the only man to amass more than 2,000 hits (2,342) as a player and win more than 2,000 games (2,326) as a manager, according to STATS. After youve been fired three times and then you get hired by the Yankees, that was a good sign. I figured it was all said and done by that point in time, he said. Ever the diplomat, Torre somehow managed to assuage the most demanding of owners in George Steinbrenner, maintaining his coolness amid all the Bronx craziness while keeping all those egos in check. The result: 10 division titles, six AL pennants and four World Series triumphs in 12 years as he helped restore the luster to baseballs most successful franchise.See HOF/ Page B3In this Dec. 9, 2013 photo, retired managers, from left, Tony La Russa, Joe Torre and Bobby Cox gather at a news conference during MLB winter meetings in Lake Buena Vista after it was announced that they were unanimously elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Associated PressNEW YORK Dan Johnson drove in four runs with a go-ahead infield hit and a threerun homer, helping the Toronto Blue Jays end their 17-game losing streak at Yankee Stadium with a 6-4 victory over New York on Saturday. Brian McCanns two-run homer put the Yankees ahead in the fourth, but Johnson drove in the tiebreaking run in the seventh with a 70-foot bloop that fell in front of second baseman Brian Roberts, who didnt charge the ball. Johnsons ninth-inning drive off Jeff Francis, which extended the lead to 6-2, was his first homer since hitting three for the Chicago White Sox at Cleveland on Oct. 3, 2012. Johnson also famously saved Tampa Bay on the final night of the 2011 reular season with a tying two-run, two-strike, ninth-inning homer off the Yankees Corey Wade.AMERICAN LEAGUE Mariners 4, Orioles 3SEATTLE Chris Young allowed two hits in seven shutout innings and the Seattle Mariners snapped a fourgame losing streak by holding off the Baltimore Orioles 4-3. Dustin Ackley doubled twice and scored two runs for Seattle. After the Orioles took advantage of an error by All-Star third baseman Kyle Seager to score three times in the eighth, Fernando Rodney closed it out for his 200th career save. The 35-year-old Young (9-6), picked up on waivers March 27 after getting released by Washington, walked three and matched his season high with eight strikeouts. Over his past seven starts, the big right-hander is 4-2 with a 2.12 ERA and 43 strikeouts. Young has won nine games for the first time since 2007 with San Diego, when he was 9-8. His career high is 12 wins in 2005 with Texas.White Sox 7, Twins 0MINNEAPOLIS Chris Sale tied a season high with 12 strikeouts in eight dominant innings, Alexei Ramirez hit his 10th homer, and the Chicago White Sox beat Minnesota 7-0 for their third straight win over the Twins. Sale (10-1) scattered five hits all singles and became the first White Sox starter to win 10 of his first 11 decisions in a season since Mark Buehrle in 2005. It was also Sales 15th career game with 10 or more strikeouts, moving him into a tie for second on the teams all-time list with Juan Pizarro. Twins starter Logan Darnell (0-1) struggled in his first major league start, giving up seven runs and 11 hits while striking out seven in five innings. Daniel Webb pitched a scoreless ninth for Chicago, which has won seven of its last 10 games.Royals 7, Indians 5KANSAS CITY, Mo. Billy Butler homered for the second straight game and the Kansas City Royals overcame a five-run deficit to beat Cleveland 7-5 for their fifth straight win. A day after his pinch-hit, two-run homer in the eighth inning beat Cleveland, Butler connected for a tiebreaking shot in the fifth. It was 5-all when he tagged Nick Hagadone for a drive over the Royals bullpen in left field. Carlos Santana hit his third homer in two games for Cleveland, which has lost six of seven. Jeremy Guthrie (6-9) won despite giving up five runs on 10 hits and two walks in 5 2/3 innings. Greg Holland got his 27th save in 29 chances. Zach McAllister (3-6) couldnt hold a 5-0 lead. He gave up a single to Salvador Perez to start the fifth and was replaced by Hagadone.NATIONAL LEAGUE Reds1, Nationals 0CINCINNATI Johnny Cueto fanned nine in seven innings and Brayan Pena singled through a drawn-in infield for the only run, leading the CincinnatiRedsto a 1-0 victory over the Washington Nationals that ended a seven-game losing streak. Cincinnati ended its longest losing streak in five years by getting several good defensive plays and another dominating performance by its All-Star starter. Cueto (11-6) gave up four hits and walked three. Left-hander Aroldis Chapman pitched out of a two-on, two-out threat in the eighth and finished for his 22nd save in 24 chances. He extended his streak of at least one strikeout in his last 43 appearances, the longest by a reliever in the majors since 1900. Cardinals 6, Cubs 3CHICAGO Matt Adams drove in four runs, A.J. Pierzynski had three hits in his St. Louis debut and the Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 6-3 to stop a four-game skid. Shelby Miller returned to the Cardinals rotation and pitched effectively into the sixth inning. Adams hit a tworun double in the first and a two-run triple in a four-run seventh that was capped by Pierzynskis RBI single. Randy Choate (2-2) got the last out of the sixth in relief of Miller. Trevor Rosenthal worked around two hits in a scoreless ninth, earning his 31st save in 35 tries.Brewers 5, Mets 2MILWAUKEE Wily Peralta earned his team-leading 12th win, and Mark Reynolds homered in the Milwaukee Brewers 5-2 victory over the New York Mets. Jonathan Lucroy, Ryan Braun and Khris Davis added run-scoring hits for NL Central Division-leading Milwaukee. Peralta (12-6) labored through 5 2/3 innings, giving up six hits and two runs. He walked three batters and struck out two. Peralta threw 103 pitches and didnt show the command he had in his previous outing on Monday against Cincinnati, when he surrendered three hits and one run in seven innings. Four relievers held the Mets scoreless over the final 3 1/3 innings. Francisco Rodriguez, who blew a save and took the loss against the Mets on Friday night, recorded his 30th save in 34 chances.Braves 5, Padres 3ATLANTA Freddie Freeman had three hits and an RBI, Julio Teheran earned his 10th win and the Atlanta Braves took advantage of Ordisamer Despaignes control problems to beat the San Diego Padres 5-3. Tommy La Stella also had three hits and Chris Johnson drove in two runs as the Braves moved to within 1 1/2 games of NL East-leading Washington, which lost 1-0 to Cincinnati. Teheran (10-6) allowed three runs on nine hits and no walks in six innings. He had five strikeouts while becoming the first Braves pitcher to reach 10 wins. Despaigne (2-2) walked five batters and also was wild on a crucial throw to third base for an error in Atlantas fourrun fourth inning. The right-hander from Cuba lasted only 3 2/3 innings and allowed five runs, two earned, on six hits. Seth Smith had three hits and Yasmani Grandal had a two-run double for the Padres. Craig Kimbrel struck out the side in the ninth for his 31st save.Rockies 8, Pirates 1DENVER Nolan Arenado bounced back from a benching with three hits, including a home run, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-1. Tyler Matzek pitched three-hit ball over seven innings. Drew Stubbs and Corey Dickerson also homered for the Rockies, who have won three straight. Ike Davis denied Colorado its first shutout at Coors Field this season with a one-out homer in the ninth. It was a bounce-back performance for Arenado, removed from Fridays game when he didnt hustle down the line on a grounder to the pitcher in the fourth inning. Arenado met with manager Walt Weiss before Saturdays game and said he agreed with the decision.INTERLEAGUE Marlins 7, Astros 3HOUSTON Giancarlo Stanton hit a three-run double, and Jordany Valdespin added a two-run home run to power the Miami Marlins to a 7-3 victory over the Houston Astros. Stantons double in the second inning broke a 2-2 tie. Christian Yelich had two hits, including an RBI single as part of the four-run frame. Valdespin hit his first homer of the season in the ninth off Chad Qualls. Tom Koehler (7-7) gave up three runs and nine hits with two strikeouts in five innings. Jason Castro had two hits, including a two-run home run in the first that put the Astros up 2-1. Jose Altuve added three hits for Houston, which lost its fourth straight and fell a season-high 20 games below .500 (42-62). Astros starter Jarred Cosart (9-7) allowed five runs and seven hits with four strikeouts and four walks in 5 2/3 innings.

Only 15 seconds separated them when the stage began in Bergerac, but it became more than two minutes when the time trial finished in Perigueux. Peraud, a 37-year-old former mountain bike racer, became tearful at the finish after learning he would be the Tour runner-up: Its beautiful, he said. The Beijing Olympic silver medalist also teared up during a news conference. Now, I can retire, Peraud said. Because Valverde had a bad day, Peraud, who even blew a flat and had to change bikes, losing about 20 seconds, and Pinot were able to shade him. Also, American Tejay van Garderen climbed a spot from sixth to fifth overall by overcoming a deficit of 2 minutes, 7 seconds to Romain Bardet by two seconds. The young French rider lost key seconds after blowing a flat at the end of the stage. The last stage is also flat, and the teams of Nibali, Peraud and Pinot will be hawking over any breakaway attempts, so its not expected to be a competitive ride among the podium trio, and Champagne bottles are likely to be popped during the ride. Martin, the world time trial champion, blistered the field over 34-mile leg on Saturday. Pedaling with his body curled up in a tight ball, with the aerodynamic rear disk wheel bearing the rainbowcolored stripes earned by the world champion, he maintained a steady pace on the flats, hugged the edge of the road on curves, and squatted on his bikes top tube to reduce wind drag on the descents. Sweat trickled down his nose and off his chin. Martin overtook the rider who started two minutes before him by about the 15-kilometer point. Four kilometers later, he already had a 35-second lead on the fastest man up to that point: Czech time trial champion Jan Barta. At the end, he finished 1:39 faster than Dutch rider Tom Dumoulin in second, and Barta was third, eight seconds slower. I had a really good feeling right from the beginning that this could be my day, said Martin, who also won Stage 9, in a breakaway. Nibali was fourth, 1:58 back, Peraud was seventh, Pinot 12th, and Valverde 28th. There was little chance of the overall standings changing, not unless Nibali, one of the worlds best time-trialers, blew it. Overall, the Italian leads by 7:52 over Peraud, and 8:24 over Pinot. Valverde, in fourth, was 9:55 back. With about 20 kilometers left, Peraud popped a flat, pulled to the side of the road, and clapped gently in a gesture to his AG2R La Mondiale team to get him a new bike. Within about 20 seconds, he was riding again: The damage wasnt enough to dent his podium hopes. But Bardet, Perauds teammate, had a mishap with a cost. Near the end, he raised a hand to call the team car to get him another bike. The switch required a few seconds, but that was just enough to drop him to sixth overall behind BMC leader Van Garderen. TOUR DE FRANCEContinued from Page B1 Giants acquire righty Jake Peavy from Red SoxSAN FRANCISCO The San Francisco Giants acquired right-hander Jake Peavy from the Boston Red Sox on Saturday for a pair of minor league pitchers. He will start Sunday nights series finale against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Giants held a half-game division lead in the NL West against their rival going into Saturday nights middle game at AT&T Park. San Francisco is sending right-hander Heath Hembree and lefty Edwin Escobar to the World Series champion Red Sox in the swap. Peavy (1-9, 4.72 ERA) has been hurt by poor run support this season, receiving two runs or fewer of support in each of his past eight starts. Yusmeiro Petit had been scheduled to pitch Sunday for the Giants with righthander Matt Cain on the disabled list. The Giants made the deal without having to give up their top pitching prospect, Kyle Crick. Its been a busy week for Giants general manager Brian Sabean and assistant GM Bobby Evans. On Friday, they promoted second baseman Dan Uggla from Triple-A Fresno only four days after they signed him to a minor league contract Monday. Uggla was released by Atlanta on July 18.QB McCown likes the way Bucs are coming togetherTAMPA Josh McCown expects the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to be better this season. Hes just reluctant to speculate how much. The 35-year-old quarterback is beginning his 13th NFL training camp, though its his first as a teams projected starter since he was with the Arizona Cardinals in 2004. The Bucs signed the career backup, whos coming off the best season of his career, in March and new coach Lovie Smith is counting on him to provide steady leadership for an offense that ranked 30th in scoring and dead last in passing and total yardage en route to a 4-12 finish a year ago.From wire reports SPORTS BRIEF Heady territory for a guy who never played in the Fall Classic. It was magical. I never took it for granted, said Torre, who today serves as Major League Baseballs executive vice president for baseball operations. I just think its so important to respect this game, just the fact that you can leave your mark and possibly wind up in a place like this, even though thats not why you play the game. Its just been an amazing ride for me. La Russas teams finished first 12 times and won six pennants, and he was picked as Manager of the Year four times, finishing second in the voting five other times. He went to the World Series three straight years from 1988-90 and also lost in the 2004 World Series when his Cardinals were swept by the Boston Red Sox. That La Russa found success in the dugout and not as a player is not a surprise. He made his big league debut as a teenage infielder with the 1963 Kansas City Athletics and appeared in just 132 games over six seasons, hitting .199 with no home runs and seven RBIs. How lousy I was, I was hoping the guy wouldnt call me in to play. Thats the truth, La Russa said. Then I got to thinking, I cant make a living, so I went to law school. La Russa tried to finance his way through law school as a player-coach in the White Sox organization, and quickly learned there was a lot more to managing than simply making out a lineup card. That allowed La Russa the opportunity to question and second-guess and it all got my fires going. After graduation, La Russa decided to see if he could manage in the minors to get the bug out, with the ultimate goal of becoming a lawyer. The White Sox gave him Double-A and Triple-A assignments, and he was hooked, becoming a devoted student of the game. In 1983, he managed the White Sox to their first postseason berth in 24 years, and 13 years later he rewarded new Cardinals owners with a division title in his first season in St. Louis (1996). That ended the franchises nine-year postseason slump, and they made it to the playoffs nine times in 16 seasons overall. La Russa also had 70 postseason victories, trailing only Torres 84, and he and his role model, Sparky Anderson, are the only managers to win the World Series in both leagues. La Russa credits early conversations with Anderson, Paul Richards, Earl Weaver, Chuck Tanner, Gene Michael, and Billy Martin for much of his success. We watched all these masters, La Russa said. We would study the managers, and there was this one guy in Toronto that after the second series we played against him we agreed, Hey, this guy is as good as any of them. His name was Bobby Cox. The fiery Cox he was ejected a major league record 161 times guided the Braves to an unprecedented 14 straight division titles and 15 playoff appearances. Many of those wins came with Maddux and Glavine on the mound for him. When Cox, who also spent four years in Toronto, retired after the 2010 season he was the fourth-winningest manager with 2,504 victories in 29 seasons. To be sure, induction day will be one to remember. The entire thing can never happen again in a million years, I dont think, Cox said. A manager being able to go in with two of the greatest pitchers in the history of baseball, and then going in with two fellow managers at the same time. I dont think thats ever, ever going to happen again. HOFContinued from Page B1 Jennings scored on Joyces single. Kiermaiers run-scoring single in the fourth came right after Yunel Escobar was almost picked off second base, a close play Farrell decided not to challenge. Ortiz was given a double in the first after a fan caught his drive near the yellow home run line at the top of the right-field fence. The call stood after a boundary area video review. Ortiz was left stranded when Mike Napoli struck out. Brock Holt was thrown out trying to score from second to complete an inning-ending double play in the third after Ortiz was retired on a grounder into shallow right field. RAYSContinued from Page B1

The 44-year-old Furyk, the 2006 winner at Hamilton and 2007 champion at Angus Glen, had a 15-under 195 total after opening with rounds of 67 and 63. He won the last of his 16 PGA Tour titles in 2010. (Im) not really worrying about what position Im in, Furyk said about his Sunday approach. Not looking at the leaderboard too much. Going out there and trying to attack the golf course the same way I have the first three days. I noticed there arent many leaderboards on the course, that might be a good thing. Coming off a final-round 65 in a fourth-place finish last week in the British Open last Sunday, Furyk has had only one bogey on the fourth hole of the first round at Royal Montreal. He leads the field in greens in regulation, hitting 45 of 54 greens, and his tied for third in fairways hit at 33 of 42. South Africas Tim Clark was second after a 64 on the tree-lined Blue Course. The guys that are out there who have played well for three days are all capable, Furyk said. Timmy Clarks got a lot of experience. Kyles won before. Clark had a birdie-eagle start. Its always great to get off to a good start, Clark said. Saturdays are normally the toughest day to score on, so you dream of a start like that. He tied for fifth two weeks ago in the John Deere Classic, helping to turn around a middling season that included a problem with his left elbow. Right now I feel good and I am able to swing how I want to, Clark said. Three months ago I started to hit the ball good again, but I just wasnt scoring. Finally, the last few tournaments, Ive started to score. Kyle Stanley had a 68 to reach 10 under, and Jamie Lovemark was another stroke back after a 67. Graham DeLaet, trying to become the first Canadian winner in the event in 60 years, was tied for fifth at 8 under after a 70. Tim Petrovic (72), tied for the second-round lead with Furyk, also was 8 under along with Joe Durant (67) and Scott Brown (69). Disappointing to three-putt the last, DeLaet said. I really wanted to make that birdie and got over-aggressive. But it was a fun day. The crowds were amazing out there. Hopefully, I can do something special. With thunderstorms forecast for Sunday, the tee times were moved up and the players will play in threesomes starting on both the first and 10th tees. The third round was played in breezy, overcast weather, with brief light rain in the afternoon.South Korea eliminates USOWINGS MILLS, Md. Inbee Park and So Yeon Ryu both birdied the first playoff hole as South Korea eliminated the top-seeded United States and earned a wild-card berth in the final round of the International Crown. The Koreans will join Spain, Thailand, Japan and Sweden on Sunday in a duel for title. After the American team of Cristie Kerr and Lexi Thompson beat Thai sisters Ariya and Moriya Jutanugarn 3 and 2, Thailands Pornanong Phatlum and Onnarin Sattayabanphot edged the team of Paula Creamer and Stacy Lewis 1-up to leave the U.S. in third place in Pool A. South Korea, the third-place finisher in Pool B, called upon Park and Ryu to face Kerr and Thompson in a wild-card playoff on the par-5 16th hole.Langer takes 8-shot lead at British OpenBRIDGEND, Wales Bernhard Langer takes an eight-stroke lead into the final round of the Senior British Open championship after shooting a 3-under 68 at Royal Porthcawl for a 14-under 199. Langer won the title at Carnoustie in 2010 but lost in a playoff at Royal Birkdale last year. He also led going into the final round at Turnberry in 2012, only to fade on the final day. That seems unlikely to happen again given the Germans three-day masterclass on the sun-kissed South Wales links. Canadian Rick Gibson is his nearest challenger on 6-under 207 after a 5-under 66, hitting back with six birdies after dropping a shot at the first. Bob Tway of the United States is third, a further stroke back after a 68.Horsey, Whiteford lead at Russian OpenMOSCOW Englands David Horsey and Scotlands Peter Whiteford share the lead, four shots clear of their nearest rivals, heading into the final round of the Russian Open. Horsey, who led the opening two rounds, shot a 2-under-par 70 on Saturday to reach 13-under 203 and was joined by Whiteford, whose 66 was the best round of the day at a sunny but windy Tseleevo Golf and Polo Club in suburban Moscow. Horsey is one of just three players in the event ranked inside the worlds top 200 and is seeking his third European Tour win, three years after his previous title, while Whiteford is aiming for his first victory in his 181st tour event. Scotlands Scott Jamieson (69), Italys Andrea Pavan (64) and Belgiums Thomas Pieters (72) share third place at 9-under.Jarrod Lyle 11 strokes back in US returnOVERLAND PARK, Kan. Jarrod Lyle shot a 3-under 68 in the Web.com Tours Midwest Classic, leaving the Australian 11 strokes behind Zack Sucher in his first U.S. event since his second bout with leukemia The 32-year-old Lyle was tied for 23rd at 9-under 204 at Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate. He eagled the par-4 18th for a back-nine 31. Traveling with wife Briony and 2-year-old daughter Lusi, Lyle opened with rounds of 67 and 69. Hes also set to play Web.com Tour events Aug. 7-10 in Springfield, Missouri, and Aug. 14-17 in Knoxville, Tennessee. When Lyle returns to the PGA Tour for the start of the season in October, he will have 20 events to earn $283,825 and reach the equivalent of No. 125 on the money list in 2012, the year he suffered a recurrence. He returned to play in November in the Australian Masters and played in the Victorian Open in February. Sucher shot a 64, making eight birdies in a 10-hole stretch. He was 20 under. Former Kansas State player Aaron Watkins was second at 17 under after a 64. Jason Gore was 14 under after a 68. Associated PressJim Furyk putts for birdie on the 14th hole Saturday during the third round of the Canadian Open in Montreal.

Jack LevineGUEST COLUMN Section CSUNDAY, JULY 27, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW How angry are the people of Citrus County? We will see next month, when primary elections are held to select members of the county commission. There are some angry candidates running for office this year who proclaim that those in public office are corrupt, stupid or incompetent. Take your choice; the challengers want the incumbents out of office. The election has pretty much turned into a referendum on the performance of freshman commissioner Scott Adams. He wants the other incumbents thrown out of office so he can give a new direction to county government. He wants to get rid of the good ol boys he says now run government. The funny thing is that Adams is a key part of the countys other good ol boy team. Sen. Charlie Dean, the longtime sheriff of Citrus County before he was sent to Tallahassee, is Adams business partner in the Sumter County landfill. Deans own father was the sheriff of Citrus County. You dont get more good ol boy than Sen. Charlie Dean and hes the first to admit that. The other funny thing is that there is only one county commission incumbent seeking re-election John JJ Kenney of Sugarmill Woods. Rebecca Bays decided to retire from the board because she was so aggravated with the drama that Adams has brought to the county. Adams has filed numerous state ethics complaints against Bays and her husband, former hospital governing board member Mike Bays. The ethics complaints went nowhere, but local taxpayers got stuck with the legal bill for Bays defense. Adams was in Sugarmill last week speaking to a civic organization. He admitted GOP rules stop him from endorsing anyone in the GOP primary, but he suggested voters should look at Campaign contributions will fuel voters anger See WINDOW/ Page C3 Jim FarleyGUEST COLUMN Dan HilliardGUEST COLUMN The city of Crystal River offers a wide variety of waterbased recreational activities for residents and visitors alike, including swimming, fishing, snorkeling, diving and paddle sports. Two of our city parks offer access to the water, Kings Bay Park and Hunters Spring Park. Hunters Spring Park has a small swimming beach and a kayak launch. Kings Bay Park also has a kayak launch. With so many people using our waters and parks these days, some conflict of interest is inevitable. Hunters Spring Park, in particular, is often very crowded. At a recent council meeting, two council members suggested removing the kayak launch as part of the parks planned renovations could be a way to ease congestion at Hunters Spring. There is the launch at Kings Bay Park, and potential locations for more. During that meeting I was out of town and unable to participate in the discussion. This touched off a firestorm of emotions, phone calls, personal contacts and emails. Many of the comments I received were passionate, articulate and in favor of keeping the kayak launch. At our most recent council meetings, there were many people present to speak to the issue, again mainly in support of keeping the launch. A number of people had told me they didnt like to use the launch at Kings Bay Park because its concrete and slippery, and several reported that theyd been injured there. Others complained about the disorderly behavior becoming increasingly common at Hunters Spring, and about the lack of enforcement. Out of the lengthy discussion came a decision to keep the launch there and to explore locations for an additional launch. I received a letter from a resident unhappy about a quote attributed to me during the meeting, that Putting Crystal Rivers parks in perspective See FARLEY/ Page C3 Our county commissioners are contemplating adoption of an ordinance to regulate the application of fertilizer in Citrus County because it is required by the state. The action is required by the state because our coastal springs and rivers are impaired by excess nutrients such as nitrate and phosphorus. These systems have high concentrations of nutrients because of our methods of disposing of wastewater and the application of fertilizer to lawns, golf courses or agricultural lands that are inadequate to eliminate or reduce pollution in our aquifer, the source of all spring flows. Last May our county attorney presented to the commission a request for direction on this issue. The choices are simple: Adoption of a model ordinance in terms outlined by MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle fileA Lyngbya harvester works in February 2013. Lyngbya is one example of the kind of effect sewage and fertilizer runoff can have in estuarine environments, thriving at the expense of other organisms. WERE BETTER THAN THE BARE MINIMUM Iam pleased to share an experience that happened during our July Fourth Honor America Celebration in Tallahassee, where I was working as a Kiwanis Club volunteer. As part of the festivities, 18 of our neighbors took an oath to become naturalized United States citizens. It was such an emotional event, with tears of joy and hugs of accomplishment from family members, friends and complete strangers. These proud new citizens represented five continents and 13 different countries of origin an impressive array of people sharing a great tradition which has built our nation. As the child of immigrants myself, I had a lump in my throat realizing that my family members went through this very same process and were all embraced by this destination of diversity. As soon as the ceremony concluded, the group marched over to a table set up by our Supervisor of Elections for the purpose of registering these freshly minted citizens as voters a cherished act of citizenship. This is an election year. Have you noticed? While Im strictly nonpartisan in my advocacy for family policies that improve the odds for health, protection and lifelong success, Im an ardent proponent of participation in all aspects of the political process. I truly believe that voting is not just a right, its a sacred responsibility. There are few more influential civic activities than voting. It takes a few minutes, but has impact for years to come. When I think of the many who struggled, suffered, fought and died for our right to vote, Im motivated all the more to have my voice be heard.

Page C2SUNDAY, JULY 27, 2014 Remember Korea on anniversary of armisticeOn July 27, 1953, the United Nations and North Korea signed an Armistice to end the fighting between the United Nations, South Korea, North Korea and China. The war started on July 25, 1950, when North Korea invaded South Korea in an attempt to control all of Korea as a Communist nation. North Korea was supported by Russian equipment and quickly overran most of South Korea. The United States sent troops and equipment to support South Korea and, together, they held a small area of Southeast South Korea called the Pusan Perimeter. The United Nations 20 countries were led by Gen. Douglas MacArthur. China joined with North Korea and, after many battles over three years of extremely cold winters and nearly two years of negotiations, an armistice was signed on July 27, 1953. What was billed as a police action and/or termed the Korean Conflict was actually a war costing more than 54,000 American lives. Approximately 103,000 Americans were wounded, 8,000 went missing in action and almost 4,000 were taken as prisoners of war. The Korean War Veterans Chapter 192 was chartered in 2001. We now have 32 regular members, and I offer membership to any and all Korean War veterans and Korean service veterans to join with us. Any person who has seen honorable service in any armed service is eligible if said service was within Korea, including territorial waters or airspace, at any time from Sept. 3, 1945, to present, or said service outside of Korea from June 25, 1950, to Jan. 31, 1955. Korean War Veterans are now eligible for the Honor Flight tours to Washington, DC. You may contact me, Hank Butler, at 352-563-2496 for membership details or Honor Flight information or contact Barbara Mills for Honor Flight information. Please remember July 27, 1953, as the signing of the Armistice 61 years ago, and remember the Korean War must not be the Forgotten War. It was the war that stopped the spread of Communism in Korea and possibly most of the Far East. Please remember all of our service members, regular and reserve, for keeping our country free. Lt. Col. (R) Herman Hank Butler Jr. Commander, KWVA Citrus 192 Primary elections are an integral part of our voting system by which voters select one candidate from many who are running for a particular office to represent their party in the general election. The primary system is peculiar to the United States, and was developed over a period of time. The earliest method for nominating candidates was the caucus, which was adopted in Colonial times primarily for local offices and continued into the 19th century for most state and national offices. Party conventions were instituted to check abuses in the caucus system. By the 20th century, direct primaries were favored by most states for both state and national (presidential) nominations. Most states have adopted presidential primaries, while many states hold primaries for most local and state candidate selections. Florida is a closed-primary state. From the Florida Division of Elections: Only voters who are registered members of political parties may vote for respective party candidates for an office in a primary election. That is why it is important to indicate your preferred party affiliation at the time you register. If you leave the field blank on the registration form, you will be registered without party affiliation. However, there are times when all registered voters can vote in a primary election, regardless of which major or minor political party they are registered or even if they are registered without a specific party affiliation. From Article VI, Section 5(b), Florida Constitution: A universal primary is determined by the provision that reads: If all candidates for an office have the same party affiliation and the winner will have no opposition in the general election, all qualified electors, regardless of party affiliation, may vote in the primary elections for that office. This provision allows all voters to vote in such a primary election contest but does not change the fact that it is still a primary contest. Each political party is allowed only one nominee to represent them in the general election pursuant to section 100.051, Florida Statute. Closed primaries, especially on the local level, can have significant impact on the choice of candidates and/or the selection of an office holder. The trend has been toward low voter turnout in primary elections, and notably in midterm elections (that is, non-presidential years). Unfortunately, the biggest drop in voting appears to occur among voters of no party affiliation (NPA). Statistics from the Florida Division of Elections show that 25.8 percent of active registered voters are registered as NPA, or other, through May 31, 2014. Statistics from the Citrus County Supervisor of Elections Office reflect an increase of 8.26 percent among NPA active voters from June, 2012, through June, 2014. NPA voters are now 21.45 percent of Citrus County active voters. The League of Women Voters views the growth in NPA registered voters as positive, as a sign of a more demanding electorate. This poses a challenge to candidates. To persuade voters to vote for them requires better communication, stronger message and more work. However, most party messages are directed to their own members not independents. In a closed primary, NPAregistered voters can be excluded from some of the partisan races, but they can cast their vote for nonpartisan candidates. Here in Citrus County, the nonpartisan races include the school board and the 5th Judicial Circuit judge. Additionally, the county commission District 4 race has been declared a universal primary, since both candidates are Republican and unopposed by another party (the primary will decide the winner for this seat).

But while there is agreement about the problem, there is no agreement on how to pay for the fix. And this is a big issue. Current road resurfacing funds come from the county gas tax, but according to county staff, the current funding level for road resurfacing would only allow the county to repave local and neighborhood collector roads every 112 years. As one funding option, the commission directed staff to examine a road resurfacing MSBU that would allow residents of an area to petition the board to resurface their road, with the county paying some of the cost and residents paying the remainder through an assessment on their properties. This idea has not been universally popular, with complaints that affluent areas could vote to repave their neighborhood roads while roads in lower-income areas would further deteriorate since residents would not be able to afford the assessment. As an alternative to the MSBU, the commission directed staff to produce a proposal for a sales tax for road resurfacing. At last weeks county commission meeting, the commission agreed to place on the November ballot a proposal for a 1-cent sales tax, with the proceeds dedicated to repaving roads. This is an idea that was floated in 2009, with the sales tax proposed as a substitute for the current gas tax. The idea was not approved by the commission, so it never went to voters. The current proposal would not replace the gas tax, which would still be used for major roads, but the sales tax revenue would be dedicated to road resurfacing. During the public hearing last week, there was some citizen support for a sales tax, which would get a portion of the revenue for road resurfacing from visitors to the county. However, any proposal for a new tax faces an uphill struggle, since voters have generally not welcomed new taxes. The challenge to the county is to make the case to the public that this proposal is necessary, and that it would produce a benefit to residents. Clearly, roads need to be resurfaced, and there needs to be a mechanism for financing this resurfacing. However, unless the county can give residents a convincing accounting of how the current road tax is used and how the sales tax would benefit the county, this proposal will die at the ballot box. The commission has made a decision to put the issue to voters. Now it needs to explain why voters should ratify this measure. THE ISSUE:County commission votes to put road resurfacing sales tax on fall ballot.OUR OPINION:Without a strong defense by the county, voters will reject measure.

CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Hot Corner:INDUSTRY We need light industryThis is regarding an article that appeared July 23 in the Sound Off where it said, Please, no industry here, from some guy that retired to Citrus County. Well, thats nice of him to retire to Citrus County, but hes got to remember the reason he retired here is because the people who were born and raised here made it the way it is and they need jobs to survive with their families, no matter what the jobs are. Now had he come up with a solution back when we had the ban on the net fishing, then maybe we wouldnt need light industry in this county. But this is a fishing community, for the most part, and a lot of migrants work here. This town needs some light industry in it. Until it does, we are not going to even touch the homeless population we have.Were not all retireesTheres a thing about Please, no industry here. This guy doesnt realize other people need jobs and Im sorry if he retired here. And if he dont like it, you know, he can always pack up and move somewheres else. Born here, and I want industryThis is reference to (the Sound Off) Please, no industry here, on July 23. I just would like to say, if he doesnt want industry here, he should move back to the state wherever he came from. I was born and raised right here and I would like to see industry here because theres no jobs. So if you dont like it, take the same highway back to where you came from.

COMMENTARYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, JULY27, 2014 C3 the controversial billboard in Inverness put up by his business associate Charlie Strange. The billboard urges voters to support Ron Kitchen and Scott Carnahan. Just last week, some television commercials paid for by $50,000 contributed by Strange began airing that make strong personal attacks against Webb and Kenney. Kenney is facing three GOP opponents. Two of them, Renee ChristopherMcPheeters and Kitchen, were unsuccessful two years ago when they both tried to unseat Commissioner Dennis Damato, who represents Crystal River on the board. They have both moved their residences to southwest Citrus County so they can challenge Kenney. Phil Mulrain is the fourth candidate, and he has repeatedly been involved in unsuccessful attempts to gain public office. Joey White, another repeat candidate from the GOP qualified to run as a no-party candidate so the GOP primary would be closed. No offense, but White has as much chance of winning the county commission seat as a no-party candidate as the Chicago Cubs do of winning backto-back World Series. The intent of this cynical move was to keep veterans who are not registered as Republicans from being able to participate in the primary. Scott Carnahan and Winn Webb are both trying to win the seat being vacated by Bays. Webb is a former county commissioner who ran an unsuccessful campaign two years ago against Jeff Dawsy in the sheriffs race. The intriguing thing is that the Scott Adams Good Old Boy II team firmly backed Webb in the sheriffs race after he won the GOP primary. But Webb has been abandoned by the group and Carnahan, a local businessman, is now their candidate of choice. That is important, because Citrus County is going to see an unprecedented amount of cash contributions spent on the campaign. The weapon of choice is going to be anonymous direct-mail pieces that will show up at every household making incredible charges of corruption and incompetence. Four years ago, J.J. Kenney beat incumbent commissioner Gary Bartell without really running an election campaign. He didnt have to. Bartells numbers in the polls were so bad that all Kenney had to do is show up and tell the audience Im not Gary Bartell. This wasnt just a Bartell issue voters were very angry in 2010 because of the rotten economy. The other incumbents on the commission also got the boot. The Aug. 26 primary will tell us just how angry folks are this year.Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle. Email him at gmulligan @chronicleonline.com. percent of the feedback I had received was for keeping the launch. The gentleman attached a copy of a memo he had sent to all members of council on June 1 strongly opposing a launch at this park. He suggested that I was either forgetful or not forthright in my comments. He further suggested that I explain myself in the media. As the newspaper quote was not complete, I asked for the city clerk to go to the tape recording of the meeting. What I said was, The two most communications Ive gotten as mayor was for the flags over the sandwich shop, and the second was this. I may have missed one, but the communications both written and verbal are near 100 percent for keeping the kayak launch, and thats what I support. One little word can make a world of difference in meaning. Considering that I received at least dozens of communications and that at most two were against the launch, my statement was accurate. Hunters Spring Park has stirred passions, but the lengthy discussions it has engendered have shown that a considerable portion of the passion is focused on overcrowding and disorder. At Mondays budget workshop, council members started working toward finding a way to keep some form of security guard there during peak hours. There was also discussion of the pros and cons of charging a parking fee for nonresidents, and the discussions will continue. What should be kept in mind is that over the past few years, the city has made significant improvements at Kings Bay Park and is working on a master plan to do the same at Hunters Spring. We have some of the finest parks in Citrus County, and we are always working to improve them and to enhance the recreational experience for residents and visitors.Jim Farley is the mayor of Crystal River. Amendment took effect in 1920, and never missed a vote in her life all 91 years! Her daughter Ruth, my mother, took me by the hand to watch her and my father vote. My dad was blind, so he had to have a poll-watcher vote with him, but he always voted. They listened to the election results at the edge of their seats. Everyone in my family took civic responsibilities so seriously that it was impossible for me to grow up without that same set of values. The pollsters are busy making their case for where voters are leaning. The pundits are sharpening their sound bites. The commercials, mail fliers and phone calls are flooding in. But when all the words have been said, charges leveled and millions of dollars spent, its we the voters who hold the power to decide who will lead our nation, our states, and communities into the futureTOP TEN REASONS TO VOTE1. To honor those in our military who courageously fight for us, and to honor our law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency workers, who respond to our needs and defend the peace at home. Those who sacrifice their personal wellbeing in the name of our safety and security deserve our respect. 2. To honor people who struggled for civil rights, womens suffrage and the ideals of justice for all whose diverse voices are essential for our nations moral health and community vitality. Freedom needs affirmation. 3. To be a good example to our children and grandchildren by exercising the right to vote as a symbol of our faith in democracy. By voting, we send a signal of the importance of the choices we as adults make to secure a better future for ourselves, for our children and for the generations that will follow. 4. Voting is our societys great equalizer. No matter our station in life, income, ethnic heritage or social status, every citizen over age 18 has the same power of one vote. 5. Pollsters do not determine who wins elections; voters do. Predicting the outcome of elections, especially close ones, is at best an inexact science. Pollsters and political pundits have their roles, but like each of us, they only have one vote. 6. Elections should not be about negative ads, they should be about the options we have to promote positive policy actions. Voting for candidates in whom we believe, and for or against ballot initiatives we know will affect our future, is a perfect counterbalance to the flood of negativity polluting the airwaves and filling our mailboxes. 7. While voting is now a bit less convenient than in previous years, access to registration information and early voting are still available for people who want their voices heard. Democracy is a team sport; spectators simply dont count. 8. Its vital to be an informed voter. Pay attention to news reports and editorials about the campaigns. While how we vote is confidential, the fact that we have voted, or failed to vote, is public record. Elected officials know which individuals and demographic groups are voting, and we who do vote are more likely to be influential in policy debates. Nonvoters are voiceless, and by not participating, can become victims of their own neglect. 9. Regret is preventable. Nov. 5 is one day too late, and could have, should have are sorry alternatives to acting. Have a no excuses attitude by committing to vote, ask others to join us in voting, and promote a positive approach to making a difference among family, friends and colleagues. 10. Every vote counts. Being a participant in affecting history gives each of us a sense of pride in participation and the power to touch the future.Jack Levine, Founder of 4Generations Institute, is a Tallahassee-based family policy advocate.

Saving our name, one generation at a time Noah, Liam, Jacob, Mason, William, Ethan, Michael, Alexander, Jayden and Daniel: Based on the report from the Social Security Administration, these are the 10 most popular names for male babies born in 2013. Do you remember back during the s, when the television series Peyton Place was so very popular? There was a pretty good chance that a little boy could find himself saddled with the name Kevin or Rodney. Names sort of come and go. Mine is one that has more or less been on hiatus. Im not complaining really, Im not but my very unscientific research indicates the name Fred was moderately popular during early part of the 20th century, but then passed into the limbo of names not usually used anymore. It became a hasbeen handle. Fred is a good name. It means peaceful ruler. I take comfort in that and find no problem in answering when someone calls me by my official moniker. But, once I became old enough to notice such things, I realized that many if not most of my peers who bore the name Fred either had junior tacked onto the end or could easily trace it back to the name worn by one of their uncles. After I became a middleaged man, I started doing an informal poll. When I would meet a younger man named Fred, Id ask and began to find that a suffix was the rule, but it was more often the third. On a very personal level, in 1918 my grandmother named my father Fred. When my older brother was born, our father was adamant that he did not want to his son to wrestle with being a junior for the rest of his life. At that time, Mama didnt put up a fight and agreed to name my good brother William, after her brother William. But a few years later, in 1945, I came along. She didnt ask: Her mind was made up, and when she gave the doctor information for the birth certificate, I was dubbed Fred H. Brannen Jr. Cheryl and I married in 1966, and after just a little time passed we had two little girls, Beth and Becky. Back then, you didnt know what you were going to get until he or she was born, but when discussing names, we never seriously considered naming either of the first two Fred. Nonetheless, when our son arrived in 1977, Cheryl was convinced that no name would fit him better than Fred H. Brannen III. The cycle happened once more. Fred 3 and Gayla married in 1997, and early on they had two very sweet little girls, Ariana and Kaylee. Somewhat later in 2003, when their son was born, as far as Gayla was concerned, it was a done deal: He would be named Fred H. Brannen IV. Is it egotistical to allow your son to bear your name? Yes. Of course it is. But in defense of my father, my son and myself, the decision to add suffixes to our boys names lies at the feet of our wives. Will there be a Fred 5? Its much too soon to know, but if Im very fortunate, maybe one day Ill find out. And while I know very well we are not the only Freds in the world, theres a warm feeling about saving our name, one generation at a time!Fred Brannen has been a Chronicle columnist since 1988 and is the author of the novel At the Bottom of Biscayne Bay.

Fred BrannenA SLICE OF LIFE WINDOWContinued from Page C1 LEVINEContinued from Page C1 FARLEYContinued from Page C1 Letters toTHE EDITOR Ambitious budget needs trimmingFirst, I thank Brad Thorpe for his service to Citrus County for many years. He has had a Herculean task managing through the financial crisis and the Duke Energy issues. While our county is certainly not past these problems, I have trouble with his logic for needing to add more employees at a time when revenues are not increasing for the services provided. The county administration has been the beneficiary of a significant tax increase and the fire services fee. With that in mind, we now balance the budget by utilizing the $3 million from the Duke Energy tax settlement. Details printed in the paper state: 1. One percent pay increase for county employees and 2.5 percent merit pay increase. Thats 3.5 percent, higher than the national average. Im not saying the pay increase is not justified. But everyone? W ith no revenue increase to pay for it now or in the future? 2. Six new positions? I agree they might be nice to have, but who is to pay for it? 3. One million dollars for capital projects. In the business world, these are outside the budget and depreciated over time. In the public sector, they should be paid for with bonds or the existing revenue stream. Wait till you see the cost for that. Might want to rethink these projects. 4. Mandated state increases in mental health? 5. A proposed $1.1 million for constitutional offices. Are they really needed, or would we like to have them? I know Mr. Thorpe would like to have the commissioners tell him where to make the cuts. That makes his job easy and shirks his responsibility for managing our affairs. However, if the commissioners want to purchase Meadowcrest or the pool in Beverly Hills, they then have the responsibility of determining where the money is coming from to pay for them. My bottom line: This is a $3 million problem kicked down the road to the next administrator or next county commission. William Swanson HernandoRoll back millage rateIt is that time of year once again where we set the budget for the coming year. Citizens of Citrus County, it is time for tax relief for you. When this county government went to battle with Duke Energy, it raised your taxes to support the property appraisers office to the tune of $775,000 to cover the legal expenses. The battle is over and we need to get our money back in a millage rate decrease. We no longer need to fund this expense. We have also settled our differences with a tax gain of about $7 million, so I believe we can lower the millage rate by two-tenths of a mill, which is approximately $1,460,000. If I remember correctly, last year the county agreed to give back to the taxpayer 75 percent of any settlement, with 25 percent put into reserves or capital improvements. Well, it is time to pay up, commissioners. Looking at this new budget, one finds raises for everyone. I dont see one thing on any givebacks to the taxpayer yet. After reading the article in theChronicleon July 19, I made a phone call to a commissioner and he agreed that we should do the right thing and roll back the millage rate. Now, if I am right, I have two commissioners agreeing that this is the right thing to do for the citizens of this county. All county commissioners should keep their word.Charles Knecht Sr. DunnellonTax a foregone conclusionCome November, thanks to the Board of County Commissioners, Citrus County voters will be obliged to vote whether or not to increase the sales tax by 1 cent. The tax increase will be fully supported by Citrus Countys Builders Association, Chamber of Commerce, Board of Realtors, Economic Development Council, the Chronicleand chumps. Given the combined political weight of those groups, be prepared to pay 7 cents tax on each dollar spent in Tax-and-Spend County rather than the present 6 cents.James McIntosh Lecanto

the state or, with sufficient scientific and technical support, a more aggressive ordinance which could provide relief to our springs and their trend of increasing pollutant concentrations. The commission consensus directed county staff to draft an ordinance based on the states model. In other words, a regulation crafted to meet minimum legal and performance standards. Commissioners, we have higher expectations. Springs are our window into the aquifer. The quality of spring discharge water is intrinsically linked to the core of your responsibility as a representative of the residents in your jurisdiction; specifically, our health, safety and welfare. In many ways, health and safety are tightly linked. High pollutant loads of any type are of obvious concern regarding our health. Likewise, they can or should concern us due to the very real potential of adverse events like red tide in coastal waters or algal mats and blooms in the rivers downstream of our springs. Some of these events create and transport toxins or active bacteria which can lay waste to aquatic and estuarine resources, as occurred in the Indian River Lagoon recently. Our welfare is affected by such things because of direct and indirect adverse economic impact on springs-based activities, real estate values and the intrinsic link to our image, or brand, if you will. Our manatees are important. Our aquatic and seagrass beds are important. They support our economic base via recreational and commercial activities. Our springs are adapted ecosystems which functioned flawlessly for thousands of years, but are now in decline due to our illconsidered practices and methods of developing real estate and/or infrastructure which supports such development. Our springs are a fundamental resource, and we are the stewards of a profoundly unique gift. No region of Earth comes close to matching the number of springs found in Central and North Central Florida. No county in this nation has the number of first-magnitude springs we have. It is not a heritage or resource to be discarded lightly. It is a mistake to think that the application of fertilizer on a lawn in Allen Ridge does not play in this discussion, or likewise, the presence of septic systems. Our entire county is known to be the geography of spring and river basins. They are the features which provide for recharge into our aquifer and, eventually, discharge in the springs. It is inescapable that we are all participants in this undertaking. We have practiced old-school ways and are now faced with a pivotal choice: Do we take meaningful action to correct this situation or just shrug and walk away? If one looks at the documentation generated by the Department of Environmental Protection on this matter, a rather imposing volume in printed form, you might be surprised by how thorough and candid it is. It identifies the problem to within a tenth of a milligram concentration and provides a clear understanding of the sources based on land use and practices. Programs being developed by the DEP can and will address these issues in time, but compliance is voluntary. That means local governments can join the fight or remain passive and watch our resources dwindle in value. Solutions will not be founded on minimum standards. Other counties in Florida with far less at stake than Citrus have adopted enhanced fertilizer ordinances which go a great deal farther in protecting their local water than simple adoption of the model ordinance. Our need to follow their lead is profound. The documentation to support enhanced regulations is manifest and has been provided to county staff at no cost. Commissioners, please, we need more than minimum standards. Our future depends on it.Dan Hilliard is a director with Withlacoochee Area Residents Inc., which was organized in 1984 in response to quality of life threats posed by activities that have a high potential to degrade groundwater and surface water quality.C4SUNDAY, JULY27, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLECOMMENTARY 0 00H90Y_2x1 000INFZ Thursday, August 14, 2014 CITRUS COUNTY AUDITORIUM DOORS OPEN: 6PM FORUM STARTS AT 7PM Meet the local candidates and hear their positions.

Section DSUNDAY, JULY 27, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Bruce WilliamsSMART MONEY DEAR BRUCE: I recently was notified by my bank that my credit card was compromised by someone in another state. They charged $600 to my card. I called the bank and they canceled my credit card and issued me a new one. In the meantime, they are going to investigate and return my money into my account in five business days. My question is, will they just return the money or will they really do an investigation? Or do I need to notify my local police? Ben DEAR BEN: You did the proper thing. You canceled your card and will be sent a new one, and your money will be refunded. Most likely, with the small amount of money involved, the bank wont spend a lot of time investigating. You certainly should consider filling out a local police report, just to protect yourself. In any case, the fact that you notified the credit card issuer quickly discharges $550 of the cost automatically. The maximum you can be held responsible for is $50, and issuers very seldom do that. DEAR BRUCE: I have an IRA with approximately $25,000. I am 41 years old and in need of cash due to bad credit card mistakes. I am wondering how much I can take out. What would be the penalties and the taxes? S.D. DEAR S.D.: You can take it all out; however, there will be penalties. Because of your relatively young age, there will be a 10 percent penalty for taking the money out, and you will have to figure out the taxes. The amount that you withdraw will simply be added to your ordinary income for the tax year. It should be a simple matter to compute your taxes, but if you are unable to handle that, a tax preparing company can do it for a very modest amount. DEAR BRUCE: My husband and I will soon be 66 Credit card investigation will likely be brief See MONEY/ Page D4 Associated PressMeat manager Dave Fillebrown wipes down largely empty shelves Thursday at a Market Basket supermarket in Haverhill, Mass. A decades-long family feud, which brought about the ouster of Arthur T. Demoulas as CEO of the privately held company, led to a worker revolt, customer boycotts and empty shelves in the chains stores in Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. More than 100 Massachusetts legislators and mayors, Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley and New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan have publicly supported the employees. Associated PressWEST BRIDGEWATER, Mass.Its been called a David vs. Goliath story, a Tale of Two Arthurs and even the ultimate Greek tragedy, but the characters in this drama are not Biblical or literary figures. Theyre grocery store owners.A workers revolt at the Market Basket supermarket chain has led to empty shelves, angry customers and support for a boycott from more than 100 state legislators and mayors. Industry analysts say worker revolts at nonunion companies are rare, but whats happening at Market Basket is particularly unusual because the workers are not asking for higher pay or better benefits. They are demanding the reinstatement of beloved former CEO Arthur T. Demoulas, who workers credit with keeping prices low, treating employees well and guiding the companys success. The New England grocery store chain is embroiled in a family feud featuring two cousins who have been at odds for decades. While earlier squabbles between Arthur T. Demoulas and Arthur S. Demoulas were fought in courtrooms, this dispute has spilled into the stores. For the past week, warehouse workers have refused to make deliveries to Market Basket stores, leaving fruit, vegetable, seafood and meat shelves empty. Workers have held huge protest rallies and organized boycott petitions through social media, attracting thousands of supporters. Customers are defecting to other grocery stores. In some cases, customers have taped receipts from competitors to Market Basket windows. We are going to go somewhere else from now on, said Soraya DeBarros, as she walked through a depleted produce department at the Market Basket in West Bridgewater this week. Im sad about it because of course I want to keep the low prices, but I want to support the workers. Despite threats by new management to fire any workers who fail to perform their duties, some 300 warehouse workers and 68 drivers have refused to make deliveries. So far, eight supervisors have been fired. Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, who is running for governor, and New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan have publicly supported the employees. If you had told me that workers at a grocery store would walk out to save the job of a CEO, I would say thats incredible. There is usually such a gulf between the worker and the CEO, said Gary Chaison, a professor of industrial relations at Clark University in Worcester. Market Basket stores have long been a fixture in Massachusetts. The late Arthur Demoulas grandfather of Arthur S. and Arthur T. and a Greek immigrant opened the first store in Lowell nearly a century ago. Gradually, Market Basket became a regional powerhouse, with 25,000 employees and 71 stores in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine. The feud dates back to the 1970s, but the most recent round of infighting began last year when Arthur S. Demoulas gained control of the board of directors. Last month, the board fired Arthur T., sparking the current uprising. Workers are fiercely loyal to Arthur T. You know the movie Its a Wonderful Life? Hes George Bailey, said Tom Trainor, a district supervisor who worked for the company for 41 years before being fired last weekend over the protests. Hes just a tremendous human being that puts people above profits. He can walk through a store, and if hes met you once, he knows your name, he knows your wife, your husband, your kids, where they are going to school. On Friday, board members said they will consider an offer Arthur T. made this week to buy the company. Consistent with its fiduciary obligations, the Board will evaluate and seriously consider this proposal, along with any other offers previously received and to be received, the board said in a statement it issued after a meeting. The board also decried what it called the negative behavior of some current and former employees. It is now clear that it is in the interests of all members of the Market Basket community for normal business operations to resume immediately, the statement said. As the board met, up to 10,000 employees, customers and supporters attended another protest rally at a Market Basket store in Tewksbury. Employees said they believe the fight between the family members loyal to Arthur T. and Arthur S. is largely over money and the direction of the company. They say Arthur S. and his supporters have pressed for a greater return to shareholders. Arthur T. and his supporters have focused on keeping prices low. Many employees are distrustful of Arthur S. and two co-chief executives who were brought in from outside the company: Felicia Thornton, a former executive of the grocery chain Albertsons, and Jim Gooch, former president and chief executive at RadioShack Corp. Im worried about my job, said Valerie Burke, a worker in the West Bridgewater store. Its a great company to work for now, but we are worried it wont stay that way, she said as she picketed outside the store Tuesday. Arthur S. has not spoken publicly, while Gooch and Thornton have communicated only through prepared statements. They assured workers in a statement that they are not planning drastic changes in the way the company is operated, and urged employees to return to work. Steve Paulenka, who started in 1974 as a bag boy and rose to facilities and operations manager before being fired last weekend, said he sees no end to protests unless Arthur T. is reinstated. A big part of me doesnt like whats going on its like breaking your favorite toy on purpose, he said. But well get through this. Employees revolt at grocery store chain to support CEO ousted by his cousinWHAT LOYALTY LOOKS LIKE

Owners Rudi and Lynn Weber moved to Inverness in the fall of 2012 from Antwerp, Belgium. They had a dream of opening an ice cream shop that would bring the taste of Belgium to their new friends and neighbors. From using a cross between American and Belgian flavors for their homemade ice creams which are served in a handmade waffle crisp bowl to the uniqueness of a light, crisp Brussels waffle made with all-natural ingredients and served on a stone plate, they have really hit the mark. The ice cream is made from scratch weekly and flavors include double dark chocolate, Belgian cookie, vanilla, Key lime pie, coffee, banana with chocolate chips and many more. And dont forget to try the authentic Belgian waffles. Starting this summer, you may see Lynns Ice Cream sold by boat out on the waters of Citrus County.

Associated PressDENVER Pot may be legal in some states but the neighbors dont have to like it. Marijuana and hemp have joined wacky paint colors and unsightly fences as common neighborhood disputes facing homeowners associations. Homeowners associations cant ban members from using marijuana in their homes when its legal. But if neighbors can see or smell weed, the law is clear HOAs have every right to regulate the drug as a nuisance, or a threat to children along the lines of a swimming pool with no fence. The fact that people may be legally entitled to smoke doesnt mean they can do it wherever they want, any more than they could walk into a restaurant and light up a cigarette, said Richard Thompson, who owns a management consulting company that specializes in condominium and homeowner associations. Thompson said his home condo development in Portland, Oregon, is a prime example of how marijuanas growing acceptance has sparked conflicts. As soon as spring and summer come around, we hear complaints about marijuana smoke because people are out on their patios and they have the windows down, he said. Its not clear how many homeowners associations have confronted marijuana conflicts in the 23 states with some form of legal marijuana. But lawyers who specialize in HOA disputes, as well as a Colorado regulatory agency that advises HOAs, say there are growing conflicts among neighbors who want to smoke pot and others who dont want to see it or smell it. Smoke isnt the only neighbor complaint posed by loosening marijuana laws. Growing pot and hemp is prompting neighbor disputes, too. A suburban Denver retiree learned the hard way this spring that he needed neighbors permission before growing hemp. Jim Denny, of Brighton, Colorado, learned about marijuanas nonintoxicating cousin and decided to try the crop on a 75-by100-foot plot in his yard. But Dennys hemp plot ran afoul of his homeowners association, which ruled the hemp experiment unacceptable. As soon as they heard about it, they said, Were not going to let anyone grow marijuana here, Denny said. I explained to them that hemp is not marijuana, but they were dead-set against it. So with his hemp plants about 2 feet tall, Denny invited hemp activists to come transplant them to somewhere without opposition from a homeowner association. Denny sold the plants for about $3 each a good price for a plant whose seeds can cost up to $10 each because it cant be imported. years old. We both would like to file for our Social Security this year. I would like to file on his account so I can receive half of whatever he receives, which will be more than I would receive on my own account. Do I have to wait for my husband to file before I can file on his account? Or do I file when I am eligible and state that I want to file on his account? I am not sure how this works and cannot seem to get a clear answer to this question. B.H. DEAR B.H.: This is really a question that you should ask the Social Security office in your area. You will have to file on your own account first and then collect on his account once you have received the maximum under your own account. You do not have to wait for your husband to file before you can file on his account. You can file when you are eligible, and you are clearly eligible. DEAR BRUCE: I just purchased a house and am ready to call the inspector to make sure everything is OK with the foundation, etc. Is it required that I be there with the inspector? Mary DEAR MARY: It isnt necessary for you to be there, but I would want to be there when the inspector makes his run-through. Its only a matter of an hour or two. Then you can ask him any questions you may feel he has neglected. For example, if you noticed that he did little or nothing in terms of inspecting the basement, I would ask how come. Be certain that you find out what has been inspected and what hasnt, and dont pay for the services until you have answers. He is obligated to perform as stated in his contract.Send questions to bruce @brucewilliams.com. Questions of general interest will be answered in future columns.

Tyson Foods Inc. said its closing three U.S. plants, employing a total 950 workers, which have struggled financially as the companys product needs have changed. Tyson, the biggest U.S. meat processor, announced Friday the planned closures of the plants in Cherokee, Iowa; Buffalo, New York; and Santa Teresa, New Mexico. The company said the action will enable it to move some of the operations and equipment at the plants to other, more cost-efficient Tyson plants. The Cherokee plant will close Sept. 27, and the Buffalo and Santa Teresa plants are expected to shut down in the first half of 2015. Tyson, based in Springdale, Arkansas, has some 115,000 employees in 130 countries. Like other meat producers, Tyson is facing changing consumer tastes and volatile meat prices. Its net income more than doubled in the latest quarter, benefiting from strong demand for chicken and higher prices for beef and pork. But earnings fell short of expectations. Tyson signed a $7.75 billion deal earlier this month to buy Hillshire Brands Co., the maker of Jimmy Dean sausages and Ball Park hot dogs. Tyson shares declined 5 cents, to $39.49, in afterhours trading Friday. Tyson set to close three plants, lay off 950 MONEYContinued from Page D1 Legal or not, HOAs can have last say on pot

as well as her antiques price guides. Good luck. Dear John: I am downsizing and need help selling a beautiful 12-place setting of solid white Rosenthal China, in the Olympia pattern, from 1960. My aunt sent it to me from England, and it has stayed in my china cabinet unused, except after my marriage when we used two plates once. The set is in excellent condition and complete, except for one saucer. It includes the normal set of 12 and a wide variety of serving pieces. It also came with a Rosenthal teapot, creamer and covered sugar set. The trademark is Rosenthal Selb-Plossberg BavariaGermany Winifred pattern. Again, it is solid white. I have treasured this set for 54 years, but it is time for someone else to enjoy them. Could you please help me price this set, and hopefully lead me to someone who might want to buy it? M., Internet Dear M.: Rosenthal is a widely recognized name for high quality porcelain and dinnerware. Collectors are mainly interested in the beautiful figural statues that were made during the late 19th and early 20th century. I suggest you pass your set on in the family if possible. Dollar value of your pieces is based on interest in the china pattern replacement market. If you are determined to sell, contact Replacements Ltd, in Greensboro, North Carolina. The phone number is 1-800-REPLACE (737-5223). Dear John: My grandfather gave me this rocking chair. Can you give me any information on it? K.W., Internet Dear K.W.: You have a platform rocking chair. It was a 19th century idea in rocking chairs to place the chair on a platform, thus reducing wear and tear on carpets and flooring. Yours was made in America during the late 19th century. The style is Renaissance Revival. Potential dollar value is $100, perhaps more on a lucky day.John Sikorski has been a professional in the antiques business for 30 years.

Go universalIf arranging your collection of black and gray remotes in a monotone high-tech bouquet doesnt appeal, a well-chosen universal remote can narrow it down to one. Universal remotes are designed to work with all your technological gizmos, and range in price from around $10 to several hundred dollars. When you have a big pile of remotes, my top advice is to get a universal remote and find a 12-year-old to program it, said Jenkins. Hall cautions, however, that programming a universal remote often just leads to more frustration.Phone it inFor the technologically savvy, new apps have been created to turn your smartphone into a remote. Popular apps include Dijit, Roomie, Re, iRule, Zsmart, Commandfusion and Openremote. In addition, many TV manufacturers and cable providers (including Sony, Comcast, Optimum and Verizon) have created their own apps, some voice-activated, to replace remotes. Comcast says its Xfinity TV Remote app has been downloaded 10 million times. Many of my clients have designated iPads or smart phones that function as a universal remote, Jenkins said. unless absolutely necessary. Pruning cuts from large limbs require more time to seal over and allow more time for insect and/or disease infestation. Also important is the protection of tree roots. Tree roots cut during construction activities, such as driveways, sidewalks, irrigation lines, home additions or building, are compromised and may no longer provide proper anchoring during wind events. Additionally, a diminished root system may cause decline of the trees health due to inability to provide proper water and nutrients to the tree. Lastly, the type of pruning is important. The canopy can be thinned somewhat to allow air flow during storms, but do not overprune the tree. As trees grow, they adapt to wind stresses at their particular location. Removing entire limbs or over-thinning the canopy results in a re-distribution of these wind stresses and may place too much stress on one or more limbs resulting in a limb or whole tree failure. A good example of overpruning is a practice called lions tailing, where foliage remains at the outer end of the limb but all intermediate foliage is removed. This practice results in greater wind force at the ends of limbs and often results in failing limbs which would not have occurred otherwise. It also exposes previously shaded limbs to sunlight, creating numerous sprouts which are weakly attached and may eventually break when they get larger. There is a great deal more to pruning trees than what I have covered here. However, the items mentioned above cover the greatest sins and should assist you when hiring an arborist or when doing the work yourself. If you do hire a tree service, be sure to ask if the work will be done or overseen by a certified arborist. For more information, contact your County Extension Service, your county forester, or a certified arborist.Eric H. Hoyer is a certified arborist, a certified forester, a registered consulting arborist and a qualified tree risk assessor with Natural Resource Planning Services Inc.

Gypsys Two Cents: Sometimes I wake up scared, grumpy or both. So I now apologize to anyone who walked in and received a growl instead of a wag. I realize my growl is most intimidating and can frighten the bravest of humans. I do get corrected for this behavior and my only current reason is not enough ice cream.The collectibility of sewing items is not my specialty, but the subject is so broad I thought it worthy of an article. Cheryl Anne Reed is one of our dealers and a local expert in this field, so with her assistance we will try to inform. When we are invited into a home to evaluate items, the client proudly shows art, pottery or many other things, never thinking of that old box in the closet. We ask do you have any sewing items? They bring out this box from the 1800s and Cheryl faints. Here are some basics: The earliest sewing machines were from the mid 1700s, all mechanical and most certainly status symbols. Most any of these through the 1850s can be quite valuable if you can find them. By the 1900s, many were electric or were being converted to electric. The early treadle machines with cast iron bases and oak tops hold little value at this time, but are great decorator items. Singer Featherweights were manufactured from 1933 to 1964. The Featherweight was the portable model, hence the name. These are very popular among quilters and sewing collectors. There were only three colors produced by Singer: black, beige/tan and white/green, which Singer called pale turquoise. If you see other colors, they have been repainted with new decals applied. Prices range from $100 to $600 depending on year of manufacture, condition and color. If you have a Singer sewing machine, go to www.singerco.com to find the date of manufacture based on your machines serial number. Many tools are collectible: Tatting shuttles, needle cases, thimbles, thread holders, needle threaders, bodkins, button hole scissors, tailor and embroidery scissors, pinking and cutting shears, sewing birds, rulers, (take a breath!) ribbon threaders, spools, darners, bobbins and my personal favorite, seam rippers. Then there are buttons: Military, occupational, shank, bone, ivory, figural, calico, porcelain, hand-painted, character, scenic, animal, Bakelite and oriental just to name a few. There have been several high-end button auctions in Citrus County that have brought collectors from all over the world. Did I mention pincushions? Tomato, doll head, shoes, beaded, make-do, tartenware, animal, strawberry or other fruit, sunflower and all these are made from many different materials. My head is spinning. This is a very complicated area of collecting and these few words wont do it justice. Im still trying to figure out a tatting shuttle. Consider that many of these items can be gold, silver, brass, glass, hand painted oh, please stop! This months story from Cheryl Anne Reed: About that fainting thing ... Any sewing box from the 1800s is special, but more important is that many sewing boxes are also for keepsakes. They can hold plain to fancy buttons or sewing tools, but I have also found grandmas favorite button string, a childs lock of hair, or a dance card with a special beaus name penciled in. And sometimes a marble or two, but thats another story. Steve Barnes owns and, along with his shop dog Gypsy, operates Olde Inverness Antiques.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Standard & Poors said Wednesday that regulators have told the rating agency they are considering taking civil enforcement action against it over ratings it gave to six deals in 2011 involving securities tied to commercial mortgages. S&Ps parent McGraw Hill Financial Inc. disclosed in a regulatory filing that it has received a so-called Wells Notice from staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The notice indicates the staff will recommend to the five-member commission that it pursue action against S&P for alleged violations of securities laws. Under SEC procedure, S&P will be able to make its case to the agency on the issues raised by the notice. S&P has been cooperating with the SEC in the matter and will continue to do so, New Yorkbased McGraw Hill said. SEC spokeswoman Gina Talamona declined to comment. The three big agencies S&P Moodys and Fitch have been blamed for helping fuel the 2008 financial crisis by giving high ratings to risky mortgage securities. Those investments later soured when the housing market went bust. High ratings made it possible for banks to sell trillions in risky investments. Some investors, including pension funds, can only buy securities that carry high credit ratings. In a separate case, the Justice Department filed civil charges against S&P in February 2013, accusing it of failing to warn investors that the housing market was collapsing in 2006. Feds eyeing S&P for mortgage securities ratings Associated PressRemote controls, designed to make life easier and more convenient, have become so numerous in many homes that keeping track of them is a challenge all its own. There are often separate remotes for the TV, DVD player, cable box and sound system. And if youve got a more sophisticated set-up, or have retained your old VCR machine, you may well have a few more (gaming consoles, light dimmers, airconditioning units, etc.). Remotes tend to be annoyingly similar in size, shape and color, and have a pesky way of slipping between couch cushions, walking to various parts of the house, getting chewed by the dog or just poof vanishing. To help restore order, cable companies and professional organizers offer some suggestions:Find a containerCaddies made for remote controls come in a huge range of prices and styles. There are clear Acrylic organizing cubes (US Acrylic), nonskid rubber with voluptuous curves in impossible-to-miss primary colors (J-Me Cozy Remote Control Tidy), faux-leather organizers in staid brown and black that rotate for convenience (Cosmos) and wooden organizing boxes with NFL team logos. For those loathe to park one more thing on an overworked coffee table, some caddies hang saddle-bag style over a chair or sofa armrest (Ikea). Whatever you get, make sure its not the type of thing that will get tipped over by a stretching cat. Trays or low baskets are perfect, and drawers are terrific if you have a grabby toddler. Oh, and definitely dont store it beside the TV, said Liz Jenkins, a professional organizer in Franklin, Tennessee. As with everything in your house, you should store it closest to where youll be using it. So it really has to have a home near your couch or chair. Kevin Hall of Clutter No More, Inc. in San Diego says that keeping track of remotes is a chronic problem. Our top idea is putting a strip of Velcro on the back of a clipboard, then on the back of each remote, and keep the board by where you usually sit, he said. He also suggests putting color-coordinated dots on each remote and its corresponding device, and urges clients to keep any directions and customer numbers in a clear plastic sleeve in the room where they watch TV.StreamlineCan you retire some of these remotes? When it comes to organizing anything, whether its shoes or china or remotes, you need to evaluate how many things you have and how many you really need. Are you using all of these machines? If not, the remotes dont all need to be there, Jenkins said. Creative solutions to cluttered remote controls See REMOTES / Page E14 News notes tend to run one week prior to the date of an event. During the busy season, expect notes to run no more than twice.

LEE REICH/Associated PressA zucchini flower in New Paltz, New York. Zucchini, picked before the flower has been shed, is young and tender and can be eaten flower and all. LEEREICH Associated PressTruman Capote famously told friends that the very wealthy eat better vegetables tiny ones. So theres another plus for gardening: Its easier to eat the way the superrich do. Not that smaller is always better in the world of vegetables. A cucumber picked undersize does not taste better than one allowed to swell up before harvest as long as that fullsize one is picked before its skin yellows and seeds start to harden. Similarly, the taste of baby carrots cant compare with fully grown ones, unless the baby size is how big the carrots are supposed to be when fully mature. A certain degree of maturity is needed before a carrot can store energy which translates to sweetness in its fleshy roots. Some varieties of carrots, such as Caracas and Atlas, never grow large; when mature and tasty, the roots are still no more than a few inches long. Baby carrots that you buy in the supermarket, incidentally, are not actually babies, but are full-size carrots cut into smaller pieces.How to baby vegetablesTheres no arguing that tiny vegetables are more fun and convenient to eat. That must be what accounts for the popularity of supermarket cherry tomatoes. The bulk of these, unfortunately, are the variety Red Cherry, which doesnt taste nearly as good as Sungold, which has a delectable sweettart flavor. Miniature cauliflower minicauli is another tiny vegetable that is fun and convenient. This one tastes pretty much the same as fullsize cauliflower. The way to grow minicaulis is by planting out any variety of cauliflower at a 6-inch spacing each way and letting competition among the plants keep them dwarf as they mature.Better because they are babiesOf course, tiny vegetables main draw is their perceived gustatory superiority. And its true: Many vegetables are most delicate, tender and tasty at this stage. Fine examples of vegetables that reach gustatory perfection early in their growth are zucchini and other summer squashes. You can even pick zucchinis before their blossoms have wilted and been shed, eating the tasty blossoms along with the fruit. Every gardener knows how fast a zucchini can grow from the size of a carrot to that of a baseball bat. A few days delay in harvest rapidly plumps up zucchinis and the wallet of any farmer who is paid for poundage, thus accounting for the extra cost of vegetables harvested while still tiny. For a backyard gardener, though, frequent picking of tiny zucchinis yields better taste and keeps the kitchen from being overrun with oversize specimens.Different because they are babiesAnd then there are vegetables that take on a different character if picked while still tiny; theyre not necessarily better, but they are different. As green beans mature, the seeds within the pods expand and contribute to the flavor and texture. When baby-size, beans are almost all pod. Baby corn is similarly quite different from large ears of sweet corn whose kernels are plumped full of milky, sweet juice. But theyre both good. And any variety of lettuce, especially heading lettuces, takes on a different taste and textural quality as it matures.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, JULY27, 2014E5 E12SUNDAY, JULY27, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 3521 N.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday that the nationwide average for a 30-year loan was 4.13 percent, unchanged from last week. The average for the 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, edged up to 3.26 percent from 3.23 percent last week. Mortgage rates are below the levels of a year ago, having fallen in recent weeks after climbing last summer when the Federal Reserve began talking about reducing the monthly bond purchases it was making to keep long-term rates low. The government reported Thursday that sales of new homes in the U.S. plunged by 8.1 percent in June, a sign that real estate continues to be a weak spot in the economy. Home sales had been improving through mid-2013, only to stumble over the past 12 months due to a mix of rising prices, higher mortgage rates and meager wage growth. At 4.13 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. Fed Chair Janet Yellen told Congress last week that the purchases likely will end completely at the end of October. But at the same time, Yellen said during congressional testimony that the Fed still sees the need to keep its benchmark short-term rate at a record low near zero to give the economy support. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. Beautiful sculpture likely European, made of alabaster Dear John: Attached is a photo of a sculpture of Rose of Sharon. The artists mark appears faded somewhat. I hope the pictures are helpful regarding the maker and period of the piece. The coins have letters upon them. The detail and craftsmanship in this close-up picture may be helpful as well. I look forward to any information you could provide on value, the maker, and period of the piece. D.S., Internet Dear D.S.: Wow, what a beautifully carved bust; the detail is excellent. The beautiful young woman has a soft, warm look in her face. The lips, nose, and eyes are perfectly formed. The style is Art Nouveau. The signature appears to be Niccolini. I was not able to find any track record or biographical information about the sculptor. The material is either marble or alabaster. Carved busts of beautiful young women were produced during the last quarter of the 19th century by numerous sculptors in Italy and throughout Europe in large quantities. Most were alabaster due to the cost of marble. Potential dollar value is $600 to $1,200 if alabaster, more if it is marble. The title Rose of Sharon is a popular tale of two young lovers awaiting their wedding used throughout the decorative arts, including a popular quilt pattern. Dear John: My husband and I are both interested in antiques and collectibles. Over the past few years, we have had fun buying stuff at garage sales and estate sales, then selling them at local auctions. We plan on doing some selling on eBay and are in the learning stages of selling. What we buy and sell is based on our subjective feeling and guesses. What reading resource books would you suggest for us to become more knowledgeable about the antiques and collectibles market? F.M., Internet Dear F.M.: It is nice you both are interested in the antiques market. Buying and selling antiques and collectibles is fun and often profitable if you do not consider time, effort and expense involved with acquiring. I suggest any of the books by Judith Miller, published by DK Publisher. Her price guide on collectibles is excellent, John SikorskiSIKORSKIS ATTIC Inside...

If its marble, that would add a premium to the value.Special to the Chronicle See ATTIC / Page E15 With the peak months of hurricane season upon us, it is advisable for homeowners to be sure their trees are properly pruned to minimize both tree and property damage due to falling limbs or total tree failure. However, there is a considerable amount of misinformation out there, creating confusion for homeowners. Letters from insurance companies or knocks on the door from roving tree service companies often create doubt and fear, causing tree owners to make hasty or uneducated decisions resulting in improper or unneeded pruning of trees. Trees can be properly prepared for hurricane season through species selection and proper pruning. Pruning trees properly must begin when trees are young to avoid more serious problems later. The following are some guidelines to follow during the life of your tree.Young treesSpecies selection is important. Some species are naturally more wind-resistant due to stronger wood and limb structure. After the hurricanes of 2004 and 2005, arborists and researches studied which species fared well or poorly after these storms. Trees which are more windresistant include live oak, sand live oak (a smaller and shorter cousin), sabal or cabbage palm, and southern magnolia. Fortunately, these species are all native and common to our area. Trees less resistant to wind include laurel oak, water oak, turkey oak, red maple, sweetgum, red cedar, cherry laurel (or laurel cherry), sand pine, and longleaf pine. As with the resistant species, these too are common to our area. Tree quality is important. When buying a tree, be sure that it is a Florida Fancy (the best grade) or a Florida No. 1. A good nursery will have their trees graded so consumers know what quality they are purchasing. Poorer grades, such as No. 2, have defects which may be difficult to correct after purchase, such as limited root systems or poor branch structure. Young trees must be properly pruned as they grow. Limbs should be spaced approximately 18 to 36 inches apart and should be attached to the trunk at no less than a 45 degree angle. Two equally sized stems growing parallel to one another are known as co-dominant leaders and are weakly attached to each other, creating a high probability of breakage during wind events. Select the better leader and prune back the other one over a oneto three-year period. Also important is leaving lower limbs on the tree for several years after planting. These lower limbs create taper in the trunk of the tree, allowing the tree to better withstand winds. When pruning trees, whether young or mature, never prune more than 25 percent of the foliage in any one year. Such pruning of young trees is known as structural pruning. This pruning should occur over a period of perhaps three to five years. It creates a tree with strongly attached branches, proper taper, and a greater ability to bend naturally with the wind.Mature treesMany homeowners receive postcards or flyers from tree service companies offering to hurricane proof their trees. But what does this mean? Simply removing portions of the tree hanging over the house or thinning the trees canopy may not be necessary or done properly. Proper pruning should involve the removal of dead or diseased branches or branches poorly attached to the trunk, as mentioned above. Codominant leaders, if still present, should be removed or reduced. Avoid the removal of large limbs Preparing your trees for hurricane season Eric HoyerARBOR CULTURE See TREES / Page E14 GOT A NEWS TIP? The Chronicle welcomes tips from readers about breaking news.

exact host plant for each species of caterpillars. Marc Minnos handy 2005 book Florida Butterfly Caterpillars and Their Host Plants has the back third dedicated to pictures of 185 caterpillar host plants. The middle third has 167 photographs and range maps of each caterpillar of all butterflies commonly breeding in Florida, along with a brief description and a list of necessary host plants. Rare, endangered species are omitted. This book is available in most libraries. The Butterfly Rainforest at the Florida Museum of Natural History, University of Florida Cultural Plaza in Gainesville is an excellent source of local information on butterfly gardening in Central Florida. This destination makes an interesting day trip to learn more about butterfly gardening. Flag Pawpaw does not propagate from cuttings. The best way I have found to grow Flag Pawpaw is by saving the fruit and letting the flesh rot off. Nick the seed case slightly before planting several seeds where desired. The seed often germinates the following spring. Recently, I sowed several clusters of fresh, undried pawpaw seeds in a buffer zone bordering the east side of the Dunnellon Public Library. Flag Pawpaw had been an important component of the ecosystem before the property was developed. In the next few years, these seeds will grow into pawpaw shrubs to attract butterflies to drink nectar and lay eggs.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant.

As part of our mission, we submit this monthly article on doing one thing to save our springs and our aquifer. Members of the board are living what they recommend, as shown by this list of what members do to conserve water and reduce pollutants. Instead of always using the garbage disposal, I hand off the scraps to my neighbor for her compost pile. That also gives me access to her pile to use in my flower beds. I invested in a pool cover to use when the pool is not in use. Pool covers slow down evaporation and have the added benefit of keeping pool water warm on cool nights. They can also help reduce algae and thereby decrease the amount of chemicals required. We limit the amount of grass and we dont water it. The grass sinks deeper roots to find water and becomes more drought-tolerant. We fertilize only plants in pots so no chemicals go into the soil or aquifer. We wash only full loads in both the dishwasher and laundry. We installed low-flush toilets. (There is a rebate for this!) We do not have the sprinkler system on auto. Mostly we just handwater plants. We empty any coolers on plants after the ice is melted. We installed an instant water heater at the kitchen sink. No more running water and waiting for the hot water to arrive from the distant tank in the garage. We installed rain barrels to water the plants. The Waterfront Advisory Board is asking those of you who have done something to your yard or home to reduce the amount of water used or to keep nitrates or impurities out of the water to let us know. Email your suggestion to emcbride@crystalriverfl.org. If you have pictures, please include them. We will publish your suggestion with a picture if possible.

But interest has grown in the last 20 years, as some developers embraced the efficiency of piecing together components that come complete with floors, electrical systems, appliances even towel bars to create apartments, hotels, hospitals and more. New York Citys Department of Buildings says 39 modular projects have at least submitted paperwork.The 28 apartments were formed from 59 modules. The rectangular components are all 12.5 feet wide and 50 to 60 feet long, but with different interior walls, doorways and other attributes. The modules sit roughly side-by-side, but their interior layouts interlock like jigsaw puzzle pieces to form apartments of various sizes and configurations, featuring large windows, stylish fixtures and sometimes terraces. Construction began in fall 2012 after years of planning by Brown, codeveloper Kim Frank and architecture firm Gluck+. The foundation, basement and first floor were conventionally built, while DeLuxe Building Systems made the steelframed modules in Berwick, Pennsylvania. Trucked four per night over the George Washington Bridge, they were lifted into place and fastened to one another in 19 days. It took months to hook up mechanical systems, attach facade panels and secure final approvals. Brown estimates he saved about six months of conventional construction time and 15 to 20 percent of the roughly $7 million construction costs. (The overall cost was $13 million, including land and other expenses.) Except for six designated affordable apartments, studios start at about $1,600 a month, threebedrooms at $3,700. Thats on the high side for its far northern Manhattan neighborhood, where real estate listings show a number of one-bedrooms for rent in the $1,300 to $1,800 range. Brown says the Stack is providing an option thats unusual in the venerable neighborhood. Some apartment hunters apparently agree: 60 percent of the units were rented within about a month, he said. Among New Yorks next modular moves is a Manhattan microunit apartment building plan that won a city contest last year; the project is underway. And the pioneering 32-story, 363-apartment B2 is under construction as the first residential tower in the massive Atlantic Yards development, which includes the Brooklyn Nets arena. B2 is due to be finished in late 2015 more than a year after initially projected. It took considerable time to set up a factory at the nearby Brooklyn Navy Yard to make the modules, said Joe DePlasco, a spokesman for Atlantic Yards developer Forest City Ratner. The modular method also spurred some construction trade groups to sue the city for not requiring certain licenses for workers at the module factory; the suit was dismissed. After taking heat from officials over the pace of creating housing at Atlantic Yards, Forest City has decided to build the next two apartment towers conventionally. Modular isnt magic for every project, says Tom Hanrahan, the dean of architecture at New Yorks Pratt Institute, but it has its place one where you can repeat it and stack it.

JANE WEBER/Special to the ChronicleFlag Pawpaw is a native deciduous shrub in the Custard Apple family, and is endemic only to Florida. The three large petals of Flag Pawpaw blooms hang down from the stems in bright white, attractive flowers. Flag Pawpaw, Asimina obovata,is a native deciduous shrub in the Custard Apple family, Annonaceae. There are eight pawpaw species native to Florida, but only three available from nurseries. Flag Pawpaw likes full sun to highly filtered partial shade and sandy, welldrained soil in Zones 8 to 10. It ranges from the south part of the Florida peninsula north to the Georgia border and west through the Panhandle in sandhill and scrub habitats. It is endemic to Florida alone. Other pawpaws prefer mesic woodlands and/or coastal dunes. Often more than three inches long, the three large petals of Flag Pawpaw blooms hang down from the stems in bright white, attractive flowers in May locally. The profuse flower display is a delight in any garden. Alternate oval leaves have reddish stems, are 6 to 12 inches long and are wider above the middle of the blade. The slim trunks are gray to dark brown, and stems are a lighter color. Old trunks are rough. The plant seems short-lived in that stems tend to die after 5 or 10 years, but newer stems grow, so the plant may live up to 50 years. The edible fruit is thumb-shaped, about 1 to 6 inches long, fleshy and yellow-green when ripe in June or July. Many animals eat the ripe fruit from birds to possum, raccoons and humans. Gather fruit to eat fresh as soon as it starts to feel soft. If left until fully ripe, the wildlife will find it first. Butterfly gardeners find the Flag Pawpaw, also called Big-flowered Pawpaw, indispensable: it is the only host plant for the caterpillars of the large Zebra Swallowtail butterfly. These caterpillar eat only pawpaw leaves and petals. Most flowers provide sweet nectar on which most butterflies feed. A better butterfly garden provides the specific host plants needed for each species of caterpillar to feed, grow and develop.

Called the Stack, the building near Manhattans northern tip aims to show that while stackable apartments can save builders time and money, modular doesnt have to mean monotonous. Its chunky front embraces its building-block roots, but the apartments interiors defy their boxy components with varied floor plans and stylish fixtures and finishes. Modular construction assembling a building from prefabricated sections instead of building from scratch on-site has been around for decades, but interest has grown recently around the country and in its biggest city. The worlds tallest modular building, a 32-story apartment tower, is rising in Brooklyn. Advocates say modular building can trim costs and timetables module factories dont have to worry about bad weather and make construction more consistent. Still, the technique presents special challenges (say, driving a 750-square-foot box over the George Washington Bridge), and not all projects have proven speedy. Some have faced pushback from labor interests, not to mention an image problem: The method is sometimes perceived as cheap and, well, cookie-cutter. Pre-fab and modular have somewhat of a stigma associated with it, in some peoples minds, whether its appropriate or not, developer Jeffrey M. Brown said. But this approach can really produce cool buildings. Some key facts about modular buildings (in stackable form):Modular apartment buildings date at least to Montreals Habitat 67 complex, built for the 1967 Worlds Fair and still a desirable address. Section-stacking construction is still a relatively rarity in the U.S.: about 1 percent of the overall market outside single-family homes, according to the Modular Building Institute, a trade association.

Called the Stack, the building near Manhattans northern tip aims to show that while stackable apartments can save builders time and money, modular doesnt have to mean monotonous. Its chunky front embraces its building-block roots, but the apartments interiors defy their boxy components with varied floor plans and stylish fixtures and finishes. Modular construction assembling a building from prefabricated sections instead of building from scratch on-site has been around for decades, but interest has grown recently around the country and in its biggest city. The worlds tallest modular building, a 32-story apartment tower, is rising in Brooklyn. Advocates say modular building can trim costs and timetables module factories dont have to worry about bad weather and make construction more consistent. Still, the technique presents special challenges (say, driving a 750-square-foot box over the George Washington Bridge), and not all projects have proven speedy. Some have faced pushback from labor interests, not to mention an image problem: The method is sometimes perceived as cheap and, well, cookie-cutter. Pre-fab and modular have somewhat of a stigma associated with it, in some peoples minds, whether its appropriate or not, developer Jeffrey M. Brown said. But this approach can really produce cool buildings. Some key facts about modular buildings (in stackable form):Modular apartment buildings date at least to Montreals Habitat 67 complex, built for the 1967 Worlds Fair and still a desirable address. Section-stacking construction is still a relatively rarity in the U.S.: about 1 percent of the overall market outside single-family homes, according to the Modular Building Institute, a trade association.

exact host plant for each species of caterpillars. Marc Minnos handy 2005 book Florida Butterfly Caterpillars and Their Host Plants has the back third dedicated to pictures of 185 caterpillar host plants. The middle third has 167 photographs and range maps of each caterpillar of all butterflies commonly breeding in Florida, along with a brief description and a list of necessary host plants. Rare, endangered species are omitted. This book is available in most libraries. The Butterfly Rainforest at the Florida Museum of Natural History, University of Florida Cultural Plaza in Gainesville is an excellent source of local information on butterfly gardening in Central Florida. This destination makes an interesting day trip to learn more about butterfly gardening. Flag Pawpaw does not propagate from cuttings. The best way I have found to grow Flag Pawpaw is by saving the fruit and letting the flesh rot off. Nick the seed case slightly before planting several seeds where desired. The seed often germinates the following spring. Recently, I sowed several clusters of fresh, undried pawpaw seeds in a buffer zone bordering the east side of the Dunnellon Public Library. Flag Pawpaw had been an important component of the ecosystem before the property was developed. In the next few years, these seeds will grow into pawpaw shrubs to attract butterflies to drink nectar and lay eggs.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant.

As part of our mission, we submit this monthly article on doing one thing to save our springs and our aquifer. Members of the board are living what they recommend, as shown by this list of what members do to conserve water and reduce pollutants. Instead of always using the garbage disposal, I hand off the scraps to my neighbor for her compost pile. That also gives me access to her pile to use in my flower beds. I invested in a pool cover to use when the pool is not in use. Pool covers slow down evaporation and have the added benefit of keeping pool water warm on cool nights. They can also help reduce algae and thereby decrease the amount of chemicals required. We limit the amount of grass and we dont water it. The grass sinks deeper roots to find water and becomes more drought-tolerant. We fertilize only plants in pots so no chemicals go into the soil or aquifer. We wash only full loads in both the dishwasher and laundry. We installed low-flush toilets. (There is a rebate for this!) We do not have the sprinkler system on auto. Mostly we just handwater plants. We empty any coolers on plants after the ice is melted. We installed an instant water heater at the kitchen sink. No more running water and waiting for the hot water to arrive from the distant tank in the garage. We installed rain barrels to water the plants. The Waterfront Advisory Board is asking those of you who have done something to your yard or home to reduce the amount of water used or to keep nitrates or impurities out of the water to let us know. Email your suggestion to emcbride@crystalriverfl.org. If you have pictures, please include them. We will publish your suggestion with a picture if possible.

But interest has grown in the last 20 years, as some developers embraced the efficiency of piecing together components that come complete with floors, electrical systems, appliances even towel bars to create apartments, hotels, hospitals and more. New York Citys Department of Buildings says 39 modular projects have at least submitted paperwork.The 28 apartments were formed from 59 modules. The rectangular components are all 12.5 feet wide and 50 to 60 feet long, but with different interior walls, doorways and other attributes. The modules sit roughly side-by-side, but their interior layouts interlock like jigsaw puzzle pieces to form apartments of various sizes and configurations, featuring large windows, stylish fixtures and sometimes terraces. Construction began in fall 2012 after years of planning by Brown, codeveloper Kim Frank and architecture firm Gluck+. The foundation, basement and first floor were conventionally built, while DeLuxe Building Systems made the steelframed modules in Berwick, Pennsylvania. Trucked four per night over the George Washington Bridge, they were lifted into place and fastened to one another in 19 days. It took months to hook up mechanical systems, attach facade panels and secure final approvals. Brown estimates he saved about six months of conventional construction time and 15 to 20 percent of the roughly $7 million construction costs. (The overall cost was $13 million, including land and other expenses.) Except for six designated affordable apartments, studios start at about $1,600 a month, threebedrooms at $3,700. Thats on the high side for its far northern Manhattan neighborhood, where real estate listings show a number of one-bedrooms for rent in the $1,300 to $1,800 range. Brown says the Stack is providing an option thats unusual in the venerable neighborhood. Some apartment hunters apparently agree: 60 percent of the units were rented within about a month, he said. Among New Yorks next modular moves is a Manhattan microunit apartment building plan that won a city contest last year; the project is underway. And the pioneering 32-story, 363-apartment B2 is under construction as the first residential tower in the massive Atlantic Yards development, which includes the Brooklyn Nets arena. B2 is due to be finished in late 2015 more than a year after initially projected. It took considerable time to set up a factory at the nearby Brooklyn Navy Yard to make the modules, said Joe DePlasco, a spokesman for Atlantic Yards developer Forest City Ratner. The modular method also spurred some construction trade groups to sue the city for not requiring certain licenses for workers at the module factory; the suit was dismissed. After taking heat from officials over the pace of creating housing at Atlantic Yards, Forest City has decided to build the next two apartment towers conventionally. Modular isnt magic for every project, says Tom Hanrahan, the dean of architecture at New Yorks Pratt Institute, but it has its place one where you can repeat it and stack it.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday that the nationwide average for a 30-year loan was 4.13 percent, unchanged from last week. The average for the 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, edged up to 3.26 percent from 3.23 percent last week. Mortgage rates are below the levels of a year ago, having fallen in recent weeks after climbing last summer when the Federal Reserve began talking about reducing the monthly bond purchases it was making to keep long-term rates low. The government reported Thursday that sales of new homes in the U.S. plunged by 8.1 percent in June, a sign that real estate continues to be a weak spot in the economy. Home sales had been improving through mid-2013, only to stumble over the past 12 months due to a mix of rising prices, higher mortgage rates and meager wage growth. At 4.13 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. Fed Chair Janet Yellen told Congress last week that the purchases likely will end completely at the end of October. But at the same time, Yellen said during congressional testimony that the Fed still sees the need to keep its benchmark short-term rate at a record low near zero to give the economy support. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. Beautiful sculpture likely European, made of alabaster Dear John: Attached is a photo of a sculpture of Rose of Sharon. The artists mark appears faded somewhat. I hope the pictures are helpful regarding the maker and period of the piece. The coins have letters upon them. The detail and craftsmanship in this close-up picture may be helpful as well. I look forward to any information you could provide on value, the maker, and period of the piece. D.S., Internet Dear D.S.: Wow, what a beautifully carved bust; the detail is excellent. The beautiful young woman has a soft, warm look in her face. The lips, nose, and eyes are perfectly formed. The style is Art Nouveau. The signature appears to be Niccolini. I was not able to find any track record or biographical information about the sculptor. The material is either marble or alabaster. Carved busts of beautiful young women were produced during the last quarter of the 19th century by numerous sculptors in Italy and throughout Europe in large quantities. Most were alabaster due to the cost of marble. Potential dollar value is $600 to $1,200 if alabaster, more if it is marble. The title Rose of Sharon is a popular tale of two young lovers awaiting their wedding used throughout the decorative arts, including a popular quilt pattern. Dear John: My husband and I are both interested in antiques and collectibles. Over the past few years, we have had fun buying stuff at garage sales and estate sales, then selling them at local auctions. We plan on doing some selling on eBay and are in the learning stages of selling. What we buy and sell is based on our subjective feeling and guesses. What reading resource books would you suggest for us to become more knowledgeable about the antiques and collectibles market? F.M., Internet Dear F.M.: It is nice you both are interested in the antiques market. Buying and selling antiques and collectibles is fun and often profitable if you do not consider time, effort and expense involved with acquiring. I suggest any of the books by Judith Miller, published by DK Publisher. Her price guide on collectibles is excellent, John SikorskiSIKORSKIS ATTIC Inside...

However, there is a considerable amount of misinformation out there, creating confusion for homeowners. Letters from insurance companies or knocks on the door from roving tree service companies often create doubt and fear, causing tree owners to make hasty or uneducated decisions resulting in improper or unneeded pruning of trees. Trees can be properly prepared for hurricane season through species selection and proper pruning. Pruning trees properly must begin when trees are young to avoid more serious problems later. The following are some guidelines to follow during the life of your tree.Young treesSpecies selection is important. Some species are naturally more wind-resistant due to stronger wood and limb structure. After the hurricanes of 2004 and 2005, arborists and researches studied which species fared well or poorly after these storms. Trees which are more windresistant include live oak, sand live oak (a smaller and shorter cousin), sabal or cabbage palm, and southern magnolia. Fortunately, these species are all native and common to our area. Trees less resistant to wind include laurel oak, water oak, turkey oak, red maple, sweetgum, red cedar, cherry laurel (or laurel cherry), sand pine, and longleaf pine. As with the resistant species, these too are common to our area. Tree quality is important. When buying a tree, be sure that it is a Florida Fancy (the best grade) or a Florida No. 1. A good nursery will have their trees graded so consumers know what quality they are purchasing. Poorer grades, such as No. 2, have defects which may be difficult to correct after purchase, such as limited root systems or poor branch structure. Young trees must be properly pruned as they grow. Limbs should be spaced approximately 18 to 36 inches apart and should be attached to the trunk at no less than a 45 degree angle. Two equally sized stems growing parallel to one another are known as co-dominant leaders and are weakly attached to each other, creating a high probability of breakage during wind events. Select the better leader and prune back the other one over a oneto three-year period. Also important is leaving lower limbs on the tree for several years after planting. These lower limbs create taper in the trunk of the tree, allowing the tree to better withstand winds. When pruning trees, whether young or mature, never prune more than 25 percent of the foliage in any one year. Such pruning of young trees is known as structural pruning. This pruning should occur over a period of perhaps three to five years. It creates a tree with strongly attached branches, proper taper, and a greater ability to bend naturally with the wind.Mature treesMany homeowners receive postcards or flyers from tree service companies offering to hurricane proof their trees. But what does this mean? Simply removing portions of the tree hanging over the house or thinning the trees canopy may not be necessary or done properly. Proper pruning should involve the removal of dead or diseased branches or branches poorly attached to the trunk, as mentioned above. Codominant leaders, if still present, should be removed or reduced.

LEE REICH/Associated PressA zucchini flower in New Paltz, New York. Zucchini, picked before the flower has been shed, is young and tender and can be eaten flower and all. LEEREICH Associated PressTruman Capote famously told friends that the very wealthy eat better vegetables tiny ones. So theres another plus for gardening: Its easier to eat the way the superrich do. Not that smaller is always better in the world of vegetables. A cucumber picked undersize does not taste better than one allowed to swell up before harvest as long as that fullsize one is picked before its skin yellows and seeds start to harden. Similarly, the taste of baby carrots cant compare with fully grown ones, unless the baby size is how big the carrots are supposed to be when fully mature. A certain degree of maturity is needed before a carrot can store energy which translates to sweetness in its fleshy roots. Some varieties of carrots, such as Caracas and Atlas, never grow large; when mature and tasty, the roots are still no more than a few inches long. Baby carrots that you buy in the supermarket, incidentally, are not actually babies, but are full-size carrots cut into smaller pieces.How to baby vegetablesTheres no arguing that tiny vegetables are more fun and convenient to eat. That must be what accounts for the popularity of supermarket cherry tomatoes. The bulk of these, unfortunately, are the variety Red Cherry, which doesnt taste nearly as good as Sungold, which has a delectable sweettart flavor. Miniature cauliflower minicauli is another tiny vegetable that is fun and convenient. This one tastes pretty much the same as fullsize cauliflower. The way to grow minicaulis is by planting out any variety of cauliflower at a 6-inch spacing each way and letting competition among the plants keep them dwarf as they mature.Better because they are babiesOf course, tiny vegetables main draw is their perceived gustatory superiority. And its true: Many vegetables are most delicate, tender and tasty at this stage. Fine examples of vegetables that reach gustatory perfection early in their growth are zucchini and other summer squashes. You can even pick zucchinis before their blossoms have wilted and been shed, eating the tasty blossoms along with the fruit. Every gardener knows how fast a zucchini can grow from the size of a carrot to that of a baseball bat. A few days delay in harvest rapidly plumps up zucchinis and the wallet of any farmer who is paid for poundage, thus accounting for the extra cost of vegetables harvested while still tiny. For a backyard gardener, though, frequent picking of tiny zucchinis yields better taste and keeps the kitchen from being overrun with oversize specimens.Different because they are babiesAnd then there are vegetables that take on a different character if picked while still tiny; theyre not necessarily better, but they are different. As green beans mature, the seeds within the pods expand and contribute to the flavor and texture. When baby-size, beans are almost all pod. Baby corn is similarly quite different from large ears of sweet corn whose kernels are plumped full of milky, sweet juice. But theyre both good. And any variety of lettuce, especially heading lettuces, takes on a different taste and textural quality as it matures.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, JULY27, 2014E5 E12SUNDAY, JULY27, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 3521 N.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Standard & Poors said Wednesday that regulators have told the rating agency they are considering taking civil enforcement action against it over ratings it gave to six deals in 2011 involving securities tied to commercial mortgages. S&Ps parent McGraw Hill Financial Inc. disclosed in a regulatory filing that it has received a so-called Wells Notice from staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The notice indicates the staff will recommend to the five-member commission that it pursue action against S&P for alleged violations of securities laws. Under SEC procedure, S&P will be able to make its case to the agency on the issues raised by the notice. S&P has been cooperating with the SEC in the matter and will continue to do so, New Yorkbased McGraw Hill said. SEC spokeswoman Gina Talamona declined to comment. The three big agencies S&P Moodys and Fitch have been blamed for helping fuel the 2008 financial crisis by giving high ratings to risky mortgage securities. Those investments later soured when the housing market went bust. High ratings made it possible for banks to sell trillions in risky investments. Some investors, including pension funds, can only buy securities that carry high credit ratings. In a separate case, the Justice Department filed civil charges against S&P in February 2013, accusing it of failing to warn investors that the housing market was collapsing in 2006. Feds eyeing S&P for mortgage securities ratings Associated PressRemote controls, designed to make life easier and more convenient, have become so numerous in many homes that keeping track of them is a challenge all its own. There are often separate remotes for the TV, DVD player, cable box and sound system. And if youve got a more sophisticated set-up, or have retained your old VCR machine, you may well have a few more (gaming consoles, light dimmers, airconditioning units, etc.). Remotes tend to be annoyingly similar in size, shape and color, and have a pesky way of slipping between couch cushions, walking to various parts of the house, getting chewed by the dog or just poof vanishing. To help restore order, cable companies and professional organizers offer some suggestions:Find a containerCaddies made for remote controls come in a huge range of prices and styles. There are clear Acrylic organizing cubes (US Acrylic), nonskid rubber with voluptuous curves in impossible-to-miss primary colors (J-Me Cozy Remote Control Tidy), faux-leather organizers in staid brown and black that rotate for convenience (Cosmos) and wooden organizing boxes with NFL team logos. For those loathe to park one more thing on an overworked coffee table, some caddies hang saddle-bag style over a chair or sofa armrest (Ikea). Whatever you get, make sure its not the type of thing that will get tipped over by a stretching cat. Trays or low baskets are perfect, and drawers are terrific if you have a grabby toddler. Oh, and definitely dont store it beside the TV, said Liz Jenkins, a professional organizer in Franklin, Tennessee. As with everything in your house, you should store it closest to where youll be using it. So it really has to have a home near your couch or chair. Kevin Hall of Clutter No More, Inc. in San Diego says that keeping track of remotes is a chronic problem. Our top idea is putting a strip of Velcro on the back of a clipboard, then on the back of each remote, and keep the board by where you usually sit, he said. He also suggests putting color-coordinated dots on each remote and its corresponding device, and urges clients to keep any directions and customer numbers in a clear plastic sleeve in the room where they watch TV.StreamlineCan you retire some of these remotes? When it comes to organizing anything, whether its shoes or china or remotes, you need to evaluate how many things you have and how many you really need. Are you using all of these machines? If not, the remotes dont all need to be there, Jenkins said. Creative solutions to cluttered remote controls See REMOTES / Page E14 News notes tend to run one week prior to the date of an event. During the busy season, expect notes to run no more than twice.

Go universalIf arranging your collection of black and gray remotes in a monotone high-tech bouquet doesnt appeal, a well-chosen universal remote can narrow it down to one. Universal remotes are designed to work with all your technological gizmos, and range in price from around $10 to several hundred dollars. When you have a big pile of remotes, my top advice is to get a universal remote and find a 12-year-old to program it, said Jenkins. Hall cautions, however, that programming a universal remote often just leads to more frustration.Phone it inFor the technologically savvy, new apps have been created to turn your smartphone into a remote. Popular apps include Dijit, Roomie, Re, iRule, Zsmart, Commandfusion and Openremote. In addition, many TV manufacturers and cable providers (including Sony, Comcast, Optimum and Verizon) have created their own apps, some voice-activated, to replace remotes. Comcast says its Xfinity TV Remote app has been downloaded 10 million times. Many of my clients have designated iPads or smart phones that function as a universal remote, Jenkins said. unless absolutely necessary. Pruning cuts from large limbs require more time to seal over and allow more time for insect and/or disease infestation. Also important is the protection of tree roots. Tree roots cut during construction activities, such as driveways, sidewalks, irrigation lines, home additions or building, are compromised and may no longer provide proper anchoring during wind events. Additionally, a diminished root system may cause decline of the trees health due to inability to provide proper water and nutrients to the tree. Lastly, the type of pruning is important. The canopy can be thinned somewhat to allow air flow during storms, but do not overprune the tree. As trees grow, they adapt to wind stresses at their particular location. Removing entire limbs or over-thinning the canopy results in a re-distribution of these wind stresses and may place too much stress on one or more limbs resulting in a limb or whole tree failure. A good example of overpruning is a practice called lions tailing, where foliage remains at the outer end of the limb but all intermediate foliage is removed. This practice results in greater wind force at the ends of limbs and often results in failing limbs which would not have occurred otherwise. It also exposes previously shaded limbs to sunlight, creating numerous sprouts which are weakly attached and may eventually break when they get larger. There is a great deal more to pruning trees than what I have covered here. However, the items mentioned above cover the greatest sins and should assist you when hiring an arborist or when doing the work yourself. If you do hire a tree service, be sure to ask if the work will be done or overseen by a certified arborist. For more information, contact your County Extension Service, your county forester, or a certified arborist.Eric H.

Gypsys Two Cents: Sometimes I wake up scared, grumpy or both. So I now apologize to anyone who walked in and received a growl instead of a wag. I realize my growl is most intimidating and can frighten the bravest of humans. I do get corrected for this behavior and my only current reason is not enough ice cream.The collectibility of sewing items is not my specialty, but the subject is so broad I thought it worthy of an article. Cheryl Anne Reed is one of our dealers and a local expert in this field, so with her assistance we will try to inform. When we are invited into a home to evaluate items, the client proudly shows art, pottery or many other things, never thinking of that old box in the closet. We ask do you have any sewing items? They bring out this box from the 1800s and Cheryl faints. Here are some basics: The earliest sewing machines were from the mid 1700s, all mechanical and most certainly status symbols. Most any of these through the 1850s can be quite valuable if you can find them. By the 1900s, many were electric or were being converted to electric. The early treadle machines with cast iron bases and oak tops hold little value at this time, but are great decorator items. Singer Featherweights were manufactured from 1933 to 1964. The Featherweight was the portable model, hence the name. These are very popular among quilters and sewing collectors. There were only three colors produced by Singer: black, beige/tan and white/green, which Singer called pale turquoise. If you see other colors, they have been repainted with new decals applied. Prices range from $100 to $600 depending on year of manufacture, condition and color. If you have a Singer sewing machine, go to www.singerco.com to find the date of manufacture based on your machines serial number. Many tools are collectible: Tatting shuttles, needle cases, thimbles, thread holders, needle threaders, bodkins, button hole scissors, tailor and embroidery scissors, pinking and cutting shears, sewing birds, rulers, (take a breath!) ribbon threaders, spools, darners, bobbins and my personal favorite, seam rippers. Then there are buttons: Military, occupational, shank, bone, ivory, figural, calico, porcelain, hand-painted, character, scenic, animal, Bakelite and oriental just to name a few. There have been several high-end button auctions in Citrus County that have brought collectors from all over the world. Did I mention pincushions? Tomato, doll head, shoes, beaded, make-do, tartenware, animal, strawberry or other fruit, sunflower and all these are made from many different materials. My head is spinning. This is a very complicated area of collecting and these few words wont do it justice. Im still trying to figure out a tatting shuttle. Consider that many of these items can be gold, silver, brass, glass, hand painted oh, please stop! This months story from Cheryl Anne Reed: About that fainting thing ... Any sewing box from the 1800s is special, but more important is that many sewing boxes are also for keepsakes. They can hold plain to fancy buttons or sewing tools, but I have also found grandmas favorite button string, a childs lock of hair, or a dance card with a special beaus name penciled in. And sometimes a marble or two, but thats another story. Steve Barnes owns and, along with his shop dog Gypsy, operates Olde Inverness Antiques.

as well as her antiques price guides. Good luck. Dear John: I am downsizing and need help selling a beautiful 12-place setting of solid white Rosenthal China, in the Olympia pattern, from 1960. My aunt sent it to me from England, and it has stayed in my china cabinet unused, except after my marriage when we used two plates once. The set is in excellent condition and complete, except for one saucer. It includes the normal set of 12 and a wide variety of serving pieces. It also came with a Rosenthal teapot, creamer and covered sugar set. The trademark is Rosenthal Selb-Plossberg BavariaGermany Winifred pattern. Again, it is solid white. I have treasured this set for 54 years, but it is time for someone else to enjoy them. Could you please help me price this set, and hopefully lead me to someone who might want to buy it? M., Internet Dear M.: Rosenthal is a widely recognized name for high quality porcelain and dinnerware. Collectors are mainly interested in the beautiful figural statues that were made during the late 19th and early 20th century. I suggest you pass your set on in the family if possible. Dollar value of your pieces is based on interest in the china pattern replacement market. If you are determined to sell, contact Replacements Ltd, in Greensboro, North Carolina. The phone number is 1-800-REPLACE (737-5223). Dear John: My grandfather gave me this rocking chair. Can you give me any information on it? K.W., Internet Dear K.W.: You have a platform rocking chair. It was a 19th century idea in rocking chairs to place the chair on a platform, thus reducing wear and tear on carpets and flooring. Yours was made in America during the late 19th century. The style is Renaissance Revival. Potential dollar value is $100, perhaps more on a lucky day.John Sikorski has been a professional in the antiques business for 30 years.
