PAGE A4TODAY& next morning SATURDAY House votes to boost child tax credit Associated PressWASHINGTON More families with higher incomes could claim the popular child tax credit under a bill that won approval Friday in the House. But in a dispute that divides Republicans and Democrats,millions of the poorest low-income families would still lose the credit in 2018, when enhancements championed by President Barack Obama are set to expire. The bill would gradually boost the amount of the $1,000-per-child tax credit by tying it to inflation, so it would go up as consumer prices rise. It also aims to make a dent in illegal immigration by prohibiting people without Social Security numbers from claiming a portion of the credit reserved for low-income families. With nearly all Republicans voting in favor and most Democrats opposed, the bill cleared the House by a vote of 237-173. The White House threatened to veto the bill, though the Democratic-controlled Senate is unlikely to pass it. About 37million taxpayers claimed the credit in 2012, reducing their tax See CREDIT/ Page A8 In Homosassa, heritage MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleHomosassa is known for its excellent commercial and recreational fishing.

Red tide blamed for fish kill in Gulf of MexicoThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has confirmed a large-scale offshore fish kill in the gulf off of Citrus, Levy and Hernando counties. Citizens have reported thousands of dead and dying bottom-dwelling reef fish, including grouper, hogfish, white grunt, triggerfish and snapper, as well as sea turtles and crabs, to the FWCs Fish Kill Hotline. Water quality is poor in the region, with several reports of black water. On Wednesday, FWC officials took scientists to collect fish, water samples and water quality data from six locations off Hernando County. Sample analysis confirmed a bloom of the red tide organism Karenia brevis. Blooms of Karenia brevis in the Gulf of Mexico are naturally occurring and have been documented since the 1700s. Satellite images from the Optical Oceanography Lab at the University of South Florida revealed an extensive surface bloom approximately 80 miles long and up to 50 miles wide in waters 40 to 90 miles offshore between Dixie and Pasco counties. Short-term forecasts do not predict significant movement of the bloom patch in upcoming days. To report fish kills to the FWC, contact the Fish Kill Hotline at 800636-0511 or submit a report online at Research. MyFWC.com/FishKill.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said the teens, ages 15 and 18, were arrested Friday on charges of felony cruelty to animals and taking, harassing, harming or killing a gopher tortoise. Videos posted on the Facebook page of Nevada Voters for Animals showed the Orange Park girls dousing the tortoise with a flammable fluid and one of them stomping on the animal until its shell broke. The younger girl will be prosecuted in the juvenile system. The other faces up to five years in prison on the felony cruelty charge and up to 60 days in jail for the second charge.ER workers look for trafficking in new initiativeORLANDO Emergency room doctors and nurses are often the only contact victims of human trafficking have with the outside world. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi on Friday launched an initiative that aims to train emergency workers how to identify signs of trafficking. Under the plan, emergency room workers will be trained to ask certain questions of people who show signs of being trafficked. Those questions run the line of Who is that person with you? to Do you ever feel pressured to do something you didnt want to do? to Has anyone approached you asking you to get involved in prostitution?

A Pinellas County judge sentenced 25-year-old Tisen KaShawn Washington on Thursday after a jury convicted him of first-degree murder. Washington was arrested last year five years after 50-year-old Jack LaGrand was killed. Security footage from 2008 shows LaGrand picking up a man prosecutors claim was Washington at Fat Daddys Watering Hole in Dunedin. Additional footage showed that man getting out of the cab at a Clearwater shopping center, where LaGrands body was later found. A witness later identified Washington as the killer. Washington acknowledged taking a cab from Fat Daddys but denied killing the driver. The Tampa Bay Times reported prosecutors presented no physical evidence linking Washington to the murder.Arkansas man killed in Panama City boat crashPANAMA CITY BEACH A 25-year-old Arkansas man is dead after a personal watercraft he was riding collided with a commercial boat off Panama City Beach. The crash occurred Thursday afternoon near Grand Lagoon.

CERT training program offered in Citrus County Special to the ChronicleDoes the idea of teaming up with others to meet immediate lifesaving needs in the wake of a major disaster appeal to you? If you answered yes, then as concerned citizens, you might want to consider enrolling in Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training offered by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office Emergency Management Section. The program is presented free of charge, in cooperation with Citrus Sheriff Fire Rescue, Health Department, The National Weather Service Office in Ruskin, and Nature Coast Emergency Medical Services. Looking at past disasters and catastrophic events, emergency management agencies across the nation were quick to recognize that immediately following a major incident they simply may not have the resources or capabilities to meet the initial rush of demands for service. Enter the Community Emergency Response Team concept. As far back as 1994, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Emergency Management Institute (EMI) adopted the model created by the Los Angeles City Fire Department and began promoting the nationwide use of CERT. This grassroots partnering effort teams up professional service providers with the very people they serve. More importantly, CERT empowers family members, neighbors, coworkers everyone in the community with the means to care for themselves until more help arrives. In Citrus County, the next CERT training session is set to begin at the Emergency Operations Center, 3549 Saunders Way, off County Road 491, Lecanto. There is no charge to attend. Nine weekly classes are scheduled for Wednesdays, Sept. 17 and 24, Oct.1, 8, 15, 22 and 29 and Nov. 5 and 12. Each session runs from 6 to 9 p.m., and targets such topics as disaster preparedness, team organization, fire safety, triage and treatment of life-threatening injuries, disaster psychology, terrorism awareness, light search and rescue and more. SKYWARN is another communitybased program thats sponsored by the National Weather Service in conjunction with the sheriffs offices emergency management section, to help save lives, reduce injuries and mitigate property damage from severe storms by building networks of volunteer spotters who report severe weather to the National Weather Service. SKYWARN spotters are trained in the last class of the CERT training session to report critical, life-saving information about tornadoes, hail, high winds and flooding. Their calls assist the weather service in providing more timely and accurate weather warnings to emergency management officials, the media and the public. Because class size is limited, preregistration is a must. CERT trainees must attend all nine evenings of instruction in order to receive their certificate of training. Visit www.sheriffcitrus.org and print out the CERT application from the Emergency Management tab. You can either mail it or drop off at the EOC in Lecanto. For more information, contact Bob Wesch, email@example.com, or call 352-249-2708. Former governor trying to make a point with voters Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Former Gov. Charlie Crist was given a climatechange lecture Friday and used the opportunity to point out that Republican Gov. Rick Scott isnt saying much about the issue. Crist, now seeking his old job as a Democrat, was considered a national Republican leader on the topic when he served from 2007 to 2011 twice holding climatechange summits that attracted international experts. The candidate said Friday that he continues to believe it is a serious issue that threatens Florida, the state most vulnerable to rising sea levels. So the half-hour presentation from Florida State University environmental science professor Jeffrey Chanton wasnt to convince Crist theres a problem. Its to try to push the dialogue, Crist said. Im convinced. Im a believer and I notice that my opponent, Rick Scott, would not meet with this wonderful scientist. Its important for people who have the opportunity to help direct policy to be open-minded and to listen. Chanton and nine other scientists offered to meet with Scott on climate change after the governor deflected a question on the topic, saying he wasnt an expert. Crist immediately said he would meet with the scientists. Scott later said he would also meet with them, but he hasnt scheduled anything. I havent heard from his office directly, Chanton said. Im sure he hasnt gotten around to it yet. Im just waiting by the phone. Scotts campaign on Friday didnt directly answer questions about whether the governor believes climate change is occurring and whether humans are causing or contributing to it. Instead, the campaign twice pointed out that Scott supports restoring the Everglades and other water projects. Pine bark shortage an issue for blueberry growersGAINESVILLE Floridas blueberry growers say this blossoming crop is threatened by a shrinking supply of a key ingredient: pine bark. A shortage of the bark has left some scrambling to find a supplier with enough to sell. Limestone in some parts of Florida leaves the soil too alkaline for blueberries, so growers have relied on layers of pine bark to lower the pH. But the reasons for the shortage of pine bark, and the question of whether there is a shortage, differ among growers and suppliers. Some cite the unusually rainy weather this year or the higher demand caused by an increasing number of growers. The Gainesville Sun reported that Alachua County is the leading county in blueberry acreage in Florida, followed by Polk and Hillsborough counties.Same-sex marriage ban struck down in Miami-Dade CountyMIAMI A Florida judge has overturned the states ban on same-sex marriage in a ruling that applies to Miami-Dade County, agreeing with a judge in another county who made a similar ruling last week. The ruling issued Friday by Circuit Judge Sarah Zabel applies only in Miami-Dade County. The Monroe County judges ruling last week was stayed when Attorney General Pam Bondi filed notice of appeal. Zabel also stayed the effect of her ruling indefinitely to allow for appeals. Both rulings found the samesex marriage ban approved by voters in 2008 violated the U.S. Constitutions guarantee of equal protection under the law. Bondi and ban supporters argued the referendum vote should be respected and that Florida has authority to define marriage in the state as between one man and one woman.NY girl, 5, killed in north Florida crashGAINESVILLE The Florida Highway Patrol said a 5-year-old New York girl is dead and her brother is recovering from serious injuries after the car they were riding in was struck by a sports utility vehicle. Troopers said a Kia Soul driven by 32-year-old Joseph Paul of New York had stopped just before the crash so the occupants could enter information into the GPS system. The stopped vehicle was partially blocking the outside lane of Waldo Road. The driver of a Ford Expedition didnt see the stopped car. Both vehicles traveled off the roadway. Annabel Jeanine Montimarie was pronounced dead at the scene. Her 8-year-old brother Sebastian G. Montimarie was taken to UF Health Shands Hospital in Gainesville, where he was reported in serious condition. Paul and 34-year-old Cassandra Montimarie received minor injuries.From wire reports Around the STATE Associated PressFlorida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist speaks July 10 at the Florida Press Association and Florida Society of Newspaper Editors in Coral Gables.

One viewer was awarded a trip to space. And there was a surprise appearance by Johnny Galecki, who hid in the audience in costume until he asked a question. For the second year in a row, the writers and executive producers represented the long-running CBS comedy. Stars Jim Parsons, Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are without contracts for season 8. The writers dodged any real spoiler-like questions (such as whether characters Sheldon and Amy will ever be intimate), but here are some highlights: Penny and Leonards (Cuoco and Galecki) wedding wont happen anytime soon. They are engaged but the wedding is sometime off in the future. Theyre not in a rush, said show runner Steve Molaro, who also said there are no plans for any babies at any point. Penny will continue to not have a last name. At this point weve come so far its a bit of a superstition for us. Wait until we have to wrestle if and when (she and Leonard) get married, how they get around that point, said Molaro. The comic-book store that burned down in the seventh season will return. There will be a comic-book store in the future, Molaro said. The show will not go on without a comic-book store. That darn elevator in the apartment building wont get fixed. It remains a functional element for the writers.

The trailer opens with a hovership landing and a meeting between leaders of the rebellion, where Phillip Seymour Hoffman and a gray-haired Julianne Moore discuss Katniss Everdeens role. Meanwhile, President Snow ( Donald Sutherland) declares the Mockingjay symbol illegal. Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) is shown entering the underground bunker where refugees of Panem are hiding, and she agrees to take up their cause. Being the first to see the trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I was only part of the Capitol Gallery experience, which occupied part of the Hard Rock Hotel. In an all-white setting inspired by President Snows Capitol color scheme, visitors could enjoy treats from Peetas bakery, witness colorful Capitol fashions, design souvenir T-shirts and have their photo taken with the holographic characters. The trailer can be seen on Samsung devices at Best Buy stores beginning today before its released widely next week.

Former lab monkeys now in Gainesville sanctuaryGAINESVILLE Gainesville just got three new residents from Ohio: former lab monkeys rescued from Wooster University, which has ended experimentations on the creatures. Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary on Thursday said it accepted the capuchin monkeys named Gizmo, Alex and Jake. Kari Bagnall, manager of the sanctuary, said it is home to more than 200 monkeys that have been rescued from laboratories. The facility is expected to get dozens more in coming weeks as more universities end experimentation.Woman bites would-be purse-snatcherCAPE CORAL Police say a southwest Florida purse-snatcher got more than she bargained for when she was bitten by her intended victim. A woman told police she was putting groceries in her car on Thursday when a woman asked her for a dollar. The victim said she went back into the grocery store with the woman and offered to buy her a bottle of water from the vending machine. The News-Press of Fort Myers reported the younger woman tried to grab the womans purse, but a struggle ensued and the pair fell to the floor. Thats when the victim bit her attacker. Police said the would-be thief ran to a waiting truck and fled.Woman sentenced to prison for marriage fraudTAMPA A Tampa woman is heading to federal prison for 15 months after her conviction on charges of conspiring to commit marriage fraud.

He was 80. Hartsfields daughter, Judy Gedies, said Friday her father died July 17 of complications following back surgery. Funeral services were set for Saturday in suburban Houston. Hartsfield, from Birmingham, Alabama, had a physics degree from Auburn University, graduated from Air Force test pilot school and was selected for astronaut training in 1969. He earned an engineering science masters degree from the University of Tennessee in 1971. He served on a 1972 lunar landing support crew, was pilot 10 years later for the shuttle Columbias last test mission and commander for a Discovery flight in 1984 and Challenger in 1985. Deadly fungus spreads in Everglades, killing trees Associated PressMIAMI A fungus carried by an invasive beetle from southeast Asia is felling trees across the Everglades, and experts have not found a way to stop the blight from spreading. Then theres a bigger problem the damage may be leaving Floridas fragile wetlands open to even more of an incursion from exotic plants threatening to choke the unique Everglades and undermine billions of dollars worth of restoration projects. Since first detected on the edge of Miamis western suburbs in 2011, laurel wilt has killed swamp bay trees scattered across 330,000 acres of the Everglades, a roughly 2 millionacre system that includes Everglades National Park. The fungus is spread by the tiny redbay ambrosia beetle, which likely arrived in this country in a shipment of wood packing material. The same fungus also plagues commercial avocado trees and redbay trees elsewhere in Florida and the Southeast. While the state has been working with the avocado industry to mitigate the damage, theres been no way to contain it in swamp bay or redbay trees. Experts say the best defense would be stopping invasive pests from crossing U.S. borders in the first place. Hundreds of millions of redbay trees have succumbed across six states since 2002, said Jason Smith, an expert in forest pathology at the University of Florida. Its amazing how much of an impact this one little tiny beetle thats no bigger than Lincolns nose on a penny has done, Smith said in a recent interview. And it continues to spread. This summer, Smith will survey the national park for living swamp bay trees to collect samples in the hopes of propagating new trees resistant to the pathogen from their cuttings or seeds. The South Florida Water Management District, the state agency that oversees Everglades restoration, also plans to ramp up its monitoring and maintenance of the tree islands where swamp bays are found. The damage is easily spotted from the air and from the highway that cuts across the Everglades. Gray skeletons of swamp bays that died in the pathogens first wave and newly dead trees that have turned dry and brown mar the dark green tree islands that dot the vast expanse of pale sawgrass. Each tree island is losing up to half its tree canopy, said LeRoy Rodgers, the water management districts lead invasive species biologist. Thats worrisome because invasive plants may work their way into those open spaces like weeds in a garden, but worse. Old world climbing fern, melaleuca, Australian pine and Brazilian pepper are the invaders that particularly worry state and federal caretakers of the Everglades. Like the invasive Burmese pythons that are blamed for dramatic drops in the populations of native mammals in the wetlands, the plants have established a home in South Floridas sunny and wet climate. The exotic plants can transform sawgrass prairies into impenetrable thickets, and they fuel explosive fires that kill native plants adapted for less intense burns. Theyre not a food source for native wildlife, and in coastal areas, their roots can disrupt the nests of endangered sea turtles. Theyre so tenacious and difficult to remove that even if Smith finds a way to propagate swamp bays to replace the ones lost, the invasive plants could prevent them from taking root. We already have these problems with invasives that are almost too daunting. When you add laurel wilt to the mix, its only going to get worse, said Tylan Dean, chief of biology at Everglades National Park. Nonnative plants currently comprise 16 percent of the flora in the Everglades, according to a congressionally mandated restoration progress report published last month by the National Research Council. Billions of dollars have been pledged for Everglades restoration projects that span decades, but those funds are mostly focused on restoring a more natural flow of freshwater through the wetlands south to the Florida Keys. In spite of the disturbances they cause, invasive species havent been factored into Everglades restoration planning beyond treating invasive plants that spread during construction, and theres little funding or manpower available to fight them back, according to the report. In Everglades restoration, we have a mantra: we want to get the water right, Rodgers said. But if we cannot deal with the invasive species, we can get the water right but not get the Everglades we thought we were getting.A6SATURDAY, JULY26, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000IPIO Serving Our Community...

A losing battle StateBRIEFS
US plans wide seismic testing of sea floor Associated PressATLANTIC CITY, N.J. The federal government is planning to use sound blasting to conduct research on the ocean floor along most of the East Coast, using technology similar to that which spawned a court battle between environmentalists and researchers in New Jersey this summer. The U.S. Geological Survey plans this summer and next to map the outer limits of the continental shelf, and also study underwater landslides that would help predict where and when tsunamis might occur. But environmentalists say it could cause the same type of marine life damage they fought unsuccessfully to prevent this month off the coast of New Jersey. New Jerseys marine life, fisheries and coastal economy cant get a break, said Cindy Zipf, executive director of Clean Ocean Action, which led a thus-far unsuccessful battle to block a sound blasting research plan off the coast of New Jerseys Long Beach Island. Although it involves the same basic technology, the new plan is much widerranging. It would begin near the U.S.-Canadian offshore border, and extend as far south as Florida. John Haines, coordinator of the Geological Surveys coastal and marine geology program, said his research will be low-impact. It is designed to more precisely map the far reaches of the continental shelf to better determine where the United States exclusive rights to undersea resources such as fish and shellfish extend. It is not being done to map potential oil, gas or mineral deposits, he said. As hard as it is to believe, we dont know in the U.S. where on the seabed our right to protect and use resources ends, he said. We could extend our ability to use and protect resources hundreds of miles offshore. The nations exclusive economic zone extends for 200 miles, but that could be extended, depending on the results of the research. Another thing it will examine is sediment that shows past underwater landslides. Data from the study could show which areas of the U.S. and Caribbean coasts could be vulnerable to tsunamis. The Geological Survey study is due to run for about three weeks sometime between August and September this year, and a similar period next year, Haines said. Zipf said researchers would blast the ocean floor with sound waves measuring from 236 to 265 decibels every 20 to 24 seconds for at least 17 days each year of the survey. Environmentalists say the noise could harm or even kill marine life including whales, dolphins and turtles. Haines said his group is sensitive to those concerns and will take steps to minimize harm to marine animals, including stopping work when animals are seen nearby. He said this years planned research will stretch from the U.S.Canadian border to North Carolina; research farther south would be done next summer. The plan still needs to be approved by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Appeals court OKs docs vs. glocks law BRANDONLARRABEE The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE A federal appeals court has upheld the states controversial docs vs. glocks bill, overturning an earlier court ruling that had blocked part of the law from being enforced. In a 2-1 ruling, a three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the state Legislature had the right to pass the law, which includes provisions restricting doctors and other medical providers from asking questions about gun ownership during medical visits. In order to protect patients, physicians have for millennia been subject to codes of conduct that define the practice of good medicine and affirm the responsibility physicians bear, Judge Gerald Tjoflat wrote. In keeping with these traditional codes of conduct which almost universally mandate respect for patient privacy the Act simply acknowledges that the practice of good medicine does not require interrogation about irrelevant, private matters. The majority found that the National Rifle Association-backed law, known as the Firearm Owners Privacy Act, has only an incidental effect on physicians speech. The appeals court rejected a decision by U.S. District Court Judge Marcia Cooke, who ruled last year that the law was built largely on anecdotal evidence, and that legislators couldnt prove that gun rights would be jeopardized or that patients who own firearms might face discrimination. Supporters of the 2011 law say doctors might turn away patients who own guns or who wouldnt answer questions about whether they did. Critics argue that doctors need to know whats in a patients home so they can offer safety advice. In a sharp dissent significantly longer than the majority opinion, Circuit Judge Charles Wilson said the law was an unconstitutional gag order that infringes on doctors rights. The holding reached today is unprecedented, as it essentially says that all licensed professionals have no First Amendment rights when they are speaking to their clients or patients in private, Wilson said. This in turn says that patients have no First Amendment right to receive information from licensed professionals a frightening prospect. Howard Simon, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, which filed a friend-of-the-court brief opposing the law, said in a statement that his organization was astounded by the ruling. Todays decision will keep doctors from asking reasonable questions and providing advice that could very well save lives, Simon said. We expect the doctors who filed this case to appeal this decision and that this decision will ultimately be overturned. The doctors could seek a full appellate court review or appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. As hard as it is to believe, we dont know in the U.S. where on the seabed our right to protect and use resources ends. We could extend our ability to use and protect resources hundreds of miles offshore. John Hainescoordinator of the Geological Surveys coastal and marine geology program.
bills by nearly $57billion. House Republicans say the bill would strengthen the tax credit by increasing it as inflation rises, and by making it available to even more middle-income families. It is time we make some simple improvements to the child tax credit, so it keeps up with the cost of raising children, said Rep. Dave Camp R-Mich., chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee. The White House said the bill favors high-income taxpayers over the poor, while adding $90billion to the budget deficit over the next decade. Fivemillion of the poorest low-income families would lose the credit in 2018, the White House said. An additional 6million low-income families would see the amount of their tax credits reduced. The new Republican rhetoric on poverty is no match for the deeply troubling actions they have repeatedly taken, and continue to take, with this legislation today, said Rep. Sander Levin of Michigan, the senior Democrat on the Ways and Means Committee. This bill leads to harm formillions of lowand middle-income families and their children. House Republicans dispute the Democrats argument, saying the bill is silent on low-income families. Current law calls for Obamas enhancement for low-income income families to expire. The bill simply lets it happen. The opponents make a false claim, that somehow this bill eliminates benefits formillions of low-income families, Camp said. Thats just wrong. Under current law, the child tax credit is gradually reduced and phased out for individuals making more than $75,000 a year and married couples making more than $110,000 a year. House Republicans say the income limit for married couples amounts to a marriage penalty because its less than double the limit for single tax filers. The bill would increase the income threshold for married couples to $150,000, allowing more families with higher incomes to claim it. The bill would index the income limits to inflation, meaning they would increase over time as consumer prices rise. The amount of the credit would also increase with inflation, rising above $1,000 as consumer prices go up. These changes would increase savings for taxpayers by $115billion over the next decade, according to the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation, which analyzes tax bills for Congress. At the other end of the income spectrum, the child tax credit is also available to families that dont make enough money to pay any federal income taxes. These families get payments similar to tax refunds when they file their tax returns. In 2009, Obama signed a law that made the payments available to more low-income families the poorest of the working poor. That provision, which has since been extended, is scheduled to expire at the end of 2017. take my classroom knowledge back to the board with some inside perspective. I know what works and what doesnt. Twenty years since first being elected to office, Whitelaw and her two opponents are competing for the vacancy being created by Pat Deutschmans departure after 16years on the board. Whitelaw served from 1994 to 1998 before losing a reelection bid to Deutschman. I will be able to return to the board and not have to re-learn the policies, procedures and budgets as my opponents would, Whitelaw said. Also, I have had five children and eight grandchildren in the system so I know the impact of decisions and policies. Whitelaw, 59, of Floral City, has a bachelors degree in English literature, has a Florida State Reading Endorsement, ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) certification and is currently a ninth-grade reading teacher at South Sumter High School. During a recent interview with the Chronicleeditorial board, Whitelaw said funding government budgets was an issue 20years ago and continues today. Prioritizing is paramount to getting the most from tax dollars, she said. Making wellthought-out decisions about the long-term effects of what might appear to be prudent could go a long way toward preventing shortfalls in the future. On other issues: Whitelaw believes Common Core is not the answer for Florida students. Common Core is an attempt to reform education, she said. The worst part of it is it is very expensive to redevelop core standards, especially when it is not going to change the outcome. It is going to devastate us. Plus, teachers still dont know what they are going to be teaching. Its time to allow teachers to bring common sense back to the classroom. Teacher evaluations need to be reevaluated, according to Whitelaw. The teaching evaluation is not fairly applicable, she said. A physical education teacher is evaluated on reading scores. They dont teach reading, yet they are tested on those scores. How can that be fair? A8SATURDAY, JULY26, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION/LOCAL 000IVNB WHITELAWContinued from Page A1 CREDITContinued from Page A1 to substitute teach at least twice a month so that they are reminded of or experience the day-to-day challenges faced by teachers. Herrin and two other candidates are running for the District3 Citrus County School Board seat. They are vying to replace Pat Deutschman, who is not seeking re-election after 16years on the board. School board members preside over the school systems policies and procedures. Herrin, 68, of Inverness, is a retired air traffic controller and an independent insurance claims adjuster who was honorably discharged from the U.S.Army. He has had some college courses in accounting, economics, English literature and composition. I asked school board members, on Aug.13, how many days had they spent in the classroom since being elected to the school board as a substitute teacher. You would have thought I slapped them, Herrin said. I was told false after false after false why they couldnt do it. During an interview with the Chronicleeditorial board recently, Herrin said the school district needs to turn more toward education and away from all of the politically correct stuff. Children are lacking direction, he said, adding that school personnel from Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel on down will tell you how the district is the top in the state. Thats true. Our kids, bless their hearts, are being cheated. They are the least ignorant of the ignorant compared to other counties. Teachers are too busy teaching the test and not the lesson. On other issues: Herrin believes the school district could see a hefty savings if the budget is examined more closely. We have the largest budget in the county, he said. They need to examine that budget line by line. If they reduce that budget by 1percent it would result in over $2million in savings. For example, if you were to reassign one administer for every school back into the classroom, it would save over $700,000 a year. One of the initial responsibilities Herrin said he would conquer in office would be rewriting the Student Code of Conduct. The handbook has too many may, should, or, would words, he said. If you are more firm of what is expected of them, they will rise to the challenge. Later in life, they will become dependable citizens by showing up to work and getting assignments in on time. HERRINContinued from Page A1 worked with teachers and parents to help keep kids on the right track, Dodd said. I have valuable insight into providing safe and drug-free schools. Dodd and his two opponents are running to fill the seat that Pat Deutschman has held for the past 16 years. Born and raised in Citrus County, 49-year-old Dodd retired from the Citrus County Sheriffs Office as a captain in February after 26years on the job. He helped start the SRO program and was an SRO for 10years. He has a masters degree in education from the University of Southern Mississippi, a bachelor of arts degree in criminal justice from St. Leo University and a bachelor of science degree in business administration from Florida Southern. Out of my opponents, I am the most qualified and I have the most to offer, he said. I know rules of order; I will be a professional school board member who has a local outside perspective. During an interview with the Chronicleeditorial board recently, Dodd complimented the school district but stressed there is always room for improvement. I will be one of a fivemember team that would be working on building a consensus to keep our schools solid, but to move it forward, Dodd said. We are at a crossroads in education in Florida as we move away from FCAT. Im going to use a commonsense filter in the Common Core curriculum. I strive for excellence. In other issues: Dodd said he would be a good steward of tax dollars. I am conservative and dont want to raise taxes, he said. I do, however, believe that if the need is great that we may have to cut a program or change a school structure, I will be a board member to communicate with the public what a tax increase could mean to the district. Capital dollars should be spent renovating and maintaining schools, Dodd said. I want our schools to have solid facilities for our kids, he said. Our solid school system attracts qualified families and professionals with children to this county. DODDContinued from Page A1

Interestrates Associated PressNEW YORK Investors got some bad news about the American shopper on Friday, driving down stocks and sending the Dow Jones industrial average to a loss for the week. Two major U.S. companies the retail giant Amazon and the credit card processor Visa both said that the second half of the year was looking more troubled than originally expected. The cautious outlook from two companies so heavily exposed to consumer spending spooked investors, causing the stock market to fall at the open and remain lower throughout the day. Visa put a lot of caution into the market this morning, said Quincy Krosby, a market strategist at Prudential Financial. The Dow dropped 123.23 points, or 0.7 percent, to 16,960.57. Its the first time the Dow has closed below the psychologically notable 17,000-point mark since July 9. The Standard & Poors 500 fell 9.64 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,978.34 and the Nasdaq composite fell 22.54 points, or 0.5 percent, to 4,449.56. With Fridays selling, the Dow fell 0.8 percent this week. The S&P 500 closed basically unchanged and the Nasdaq rose 0.4 percent this week. Visa was the biggest decliner among the blue chips, falling $7.97, or 3.6 percent, to $214.77. The credit card processor reported an 11 percent rise in quarterly profit but cut its full-year forecast on concerns about growth overseas. Because the Dow is a price-weighted index, and Visa is the most expensive stock in the Dow, Visa was having an outsized impact on it. Roughly 60 points of the Dows decline can be attributed to Visa. Investors have closely watched Visa ever since the company went public in 2008. Credit cards that use Visas payment system are in nearly every persons pocket, and each time a consumer buys a product with a Visa card the company takes a small percentage. To see Visa give a cautious outlook is worrisome, Krosby said. Visa represents the consumer and the consumer is one of the most important pieces for the future of this economic recovery, she said. Amazons quarterly results didnt help boost investor sentiment, either. Amazons stock slumped 10 percent after the online retail giant late Thursday posted a much wider loss than analysts had forecast, hit by expenses. The Seattle-based company is focused on spending the money it makes to expand into new areas and products, including a smartphone, the Fire, which starts selling Friday. Amazon fell $36.60 to close at $324.01, the biggest decliner in the S&P 500 index. Investors retreated from riskier stocks and moved into traditional havens at times of uncertainty: bonds and gold. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note eased to 2.47 percent from 2.50 percent late Thursday as demand for the government bond rose. Gold climbed $12.50, or 1 percent, to $1,303.30 an ounce Despite the disappointing news from those consumer-focused companies, corporate earnings from the latest quarter have been solid. Of the 230 companies that have reported so far, 76 percent have beaten profit expectations and 67 percent have beaten sales expectations, according to FactSet. So far the S&P 500 is averaging a 6.7 percent earnings growth this quarter compared to a year ago. Investors had expected earnings to be up 4.9 percent when the results started to roll in at the beginning of July. Consumer news spooks stocks Associated PressDETROIT The U.S. governments highway safety agency has decided to seek further information from General Motors about air bag failures in some Chevrolet Impala full-size cars. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began an inquiry into the issue after receiving a petition from Donald Friedman of Xprts LLC, a Santa Barbara, California, company that examines crashes. Friedman examined an April 2011 car crash in Hidalgo County, Texas, that severely injured an elderly man named Roberto Martinez. His wife Aurora was driving their 2008 Impala when it was hit by an SUV and forced into a concrete highway divider and a fixed barrier in front of the car. The passenger air bags didnt deploy, and Roberto suffered permanent brain injuries, according to a lawsuit filed by the couple against GM. He died about 10 months later. Friedman alleges that because Roberto Martinez was bounced around during the incident, the weight sensor in the passenger seat misread his weight and didnt fire the air bag. The air bag is supposed to inflate for anyone other than a child or small adult. The petition says GM used the same system in other models from 2004 through 2010. The inquiry covers about 320,000 Impalas from the 2007-2009 model years. Friedman says the cars should be recalled and the computers reprogrammed. GM may be getting greater scrutiny from NHTSA after the company admitted knowing about a deadly ignition switch problem in some of its older small cars for more than a decade, yet it didnt recall them until this year. Eventually, the company recalled 2.6 million cars such as the Chevrolet Cobalt for that problem. NHTSA fined GM the maximum $35 million for failing to disclose information in the case. Lawmakers have said the agency should have spotted the problem years earlier and forced a GM recall. The Martinez case was settled out of court about two years ago, said the couples attorney, Manuel Guerra. He would not disclose the sum. Friedman said in an interview Friday that he filed the petition so the government would address the problem in other vehicles. It seemed to me that it was an important thing to get in front of NHTSA and have the other vehicles that could have had the same defect taken care of, he said. Feds to take closer look at Impala airbags Associated PressWASHINGTON Orders for long-lasting manufactured goods rebounded in June after a May decline, helped by a recovery in demand in a key category that signals business investment plans. Orders for durable goods increased 0.7 percent in June on a seasonally adjusted basis following a 1 percent decline in May, the Commerce Department reported Friday. A category viewed as a proxy for business investment plans rose a solid 1.4 percent, recovering after a revised 1.2 percent drop in May. It was the best showing since orders in this core capital goods category rose 4.7 percent in March. The strength last month came from solid gains in demand for commercial aircraft and machinery. Analysts expect economic activity will strengthen in the second half of the year, helped by stronger factory production. The 0.7 percent overall increase was in line with economists expectations and pushed total orders to $239.9 billion. So far this year, orders are up 3.5 percent over the same period last year. Analysts were encouraged by the solid rebound in June, saying it should set the stage for further growth in coming months. Junes strong orders data and other survey evidence suggest that business investment will continue to grow at a decent rate in the second half of the year, said Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics. He said he expects growth would rebound to 3.2 percent in the April-June quarter. Demand for transportation products rose 0.6 percent, reflecting a big 8.2 percent gain in orders for commercial aircraft which offset a 2.1 percent drop in demand for motor vehicles. The drop in auto demand was expected to be temporary given strong sales of new cars this year. Orders for machinery rose 2.4 percent while demand for primary metals such as steel increased 0.9 percent. Orders for computers and related products dropped 13.9 percent but that followed a big 11.5 percent increase in the previous month. The overall economy went into reverse in the January-March quarter, with output shrinking at an annual rate of 2.9 percent. That reflected in part a severe winter that disrupted U.S. economic activity, from factory production to shopping. Many economists believe growth rebounded to a rate around 3 percent in the April-June quarter and they are looking for momentum to build even more in the second half of this year. The optimism is based on a belief that the fiveyear-old economic recovery is finally gaining traction, with businesses confident enough to step up hiring. That uptick in hiring is expected to power stronger consumer spending and more factory production. Report: Orders for durable goods up 0.7 percent in June

Fifty Julys ago, up the road near San Francisco, in the unfortunately named Cow Palace, the Republican National Convention gave its presidential nomination to Arizona Sen. Barry Goldwater, who knew he would lose: Americans were not going to have a third president in 14 months. Besides, his dontfence-me-in libertarian conservatism was ahead of its time. His agenda, however, was to change his partys national brand. Today, in this state where one in eight Americans live, and where Democratic presidential candidates can reap 55 electoral votes without spending a dime or a day campaigning, the Republicans gubernatorial candidate has an agenda and spirit similar to Goldwaters. Neel Kashkari is not, as some careless commentary suggests, an anti-Goldwater, diluting the state partys conservatism. He is Goldwater 2.0, defining conservatism half a century on. He relishes turning upside down the parties stereotypes. The Democratic candidate, 76year-old Gov. Jerry Brown, is the old white guy. Kashkari, the 40-year-old son of Indian immigrants, was born in 1973, the year before Brown was first elected governor. Brown is a child of the establishment his father Pat, Californias 32nd governor, was defeated in 1966 by Ronald Reagan. Jerry Brown, Californias 34th and 39th governor, is a government lifer, having been secretary of state, attorney general and Oaklands mayor when not unsuccessfully seeking a U.S. Senate seat and the presidency (three times). Kashkari prospered in the private sector, a place as foreign to Brown as Mongolia. Born in Ohio, Kashkari studied mechanical engineering at the University of Illinois, came to California to work in the aerospace industry, then earned an MBA from Wharton, joined Goldman Sachs and landed a Washington job with a Goldman Sachs alumnus, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson. As a treasury official during one of the most dangerous periods in Americas economic history, from July 2006 to May 2009, Kashkari says: I saw the best in our political system. He remembers that, with a liquiditydeprived financial system pushing the nation to the precipice of a depression, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell simply said, Of course well find a way to get this done. The politically perilous but nation-saving business of bailing out the banking system was done in days. What other democracy in the world, Kashkari asks, can move that fast to deal with a crisis? Just as McConnells opponent in this years Kentucky Republican primary execrated McConnells finest hour, Kashkaris primary opponent vociferously deplored Kashkaris role as administrator of the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). This opponent, a factually challenged fire-breather (of illegal immigration, he said, We are in a war), also said Kashkari supports Shariah law. That would be peculiar for a Hindu who calls himself a libertarian socially (he is pro-choice and pro-same-sex marriage) and lives in Southern Californias culturally relaxed Laguna Beach. Today, California is a oneparty state: Democrats have 2-1 majorities in both legislative chambers and 40 of 55 members of Congress. Republicans hold no statewide office and have only 28percent of voters registered by party. All of which has something to do with these facts: California has the nations highest income tax, sales tax and poverty rate (adjusted for the cost of living), and the second-highest gasoline tax. Only four states have higher unemployment rates. Kashkari says Californias U-6 unemployment rate which includes unemployed people seeking full-time jobs, and parttime workers who want fulltime jobs, and people too discouraged to seek jobs is above 16percent. Running against Brown requires discerning silver linings on black clouds. Kashkari says of polls showing Brown leading 52-32: Well, 100 percent of Californians know who Brown is, so 48 percent are looking for an alternative. Kashkari promises to derail Browns obsession the (at least) $68billion San Franciscoto-Los Angeles bullet train. Brown has been silent about the recent court decision striking down the tenure system that entrenches incompetent public school teachers. The public likes the decision; teachers unions loathe it. Brown, Kashkari says dryly, has multiple owners. If I get Jerry on a debate stage, Kashkari says, anything can happen. That is true, as is this: Goldwater lost 44states but won the future. His conservative cadre captured the GOP which won five of the next six and seven of the next 10 presidential elections. If California becomes a purple state, and Democrats can no longer assume its 20percent of 270 electoral votes, Republicans nationwide will be indebted to the immigrants son who plucked up Goldwaters banner of conservatism with a Western libertarian flavor.

As vessels flood the local waterways, accidents happen, and Citrus County has had its fair share of nautical mishaps. Three recent incidents occurred off the waters of Citrus Countys coastline that should serve as reminders to all recreational boaters to be safe. On July 4, Sea Tow captain Ernie Croft found a Homosassa woman lost in the water when her boat drifted away from her and her husband. On July14, two boating mishaps occurred within hours of each other in county waterways. These incidents remind us that boating can be dangerous. Fortunately, there were no severe injuries recorded during these mishaps. In recent years, others across the state have not been so lucky. In 2012 and 2013, Florida reported 704 boating accidents and 55 deaths and 736 accidents and 62 deaths, respectively. Some tips for safe boating are givens, and even the least experienced boater will usually follow them. For example: Check the weather forecast. Storms create waves and wind that can blow boaters offcourse or swamp their crafts. Make sure your boat, and motor, are in good working condition. An hour into a daylong trip into the Gulf is not the best time to discover a leak in the boat or defective motor.Make sure you have life jackets and other safety equipment on board. Sound and visual distress signals are a must. You should have a cellphone and a working VHF radio. Some other lesser-known tips include:File a float plan. It can help alert rescuers a boater may be missing and help them find the missing boaters location more quickly.Boats have limits. Too many people or too much equipment can be dangerous.While everyone 21 and younger is required to complete an FWC-approved boater education course, everyone should do so. Boating, when not taken seriously or while drinking, can be extremely dangerous. Take precautions. The three examples above all ended without a loss of life, but dozens each year in Florida die while boating. THE ISSUE:Boating can be dangerous.OUR OPINION:Be prepared.

See you there. 000IW58 Associated PressSisters Ingrid Jewusiak, of Point Pleasant, N.J., Sigrid Endreson, of Beachwood, N.J., and Marie McHenry, of Little Egg Harbor, N.J., who will share a $20 million lottery jackpot with their 14 siblings, enjoy a light moment Thursday during a news conference in Beachwood. Sandy-struck family splits lottery win Associated PressBEACHWOOD, N.J. A lottery-playing tradition started by the matriarch of a large New Jersey shore family paid off for her 17 children this week when the group won a $20 million jackpot that will partly be used to help family members recover from 2012s superstorm Sandy. I said to myself, This couldnt have come at a more perfect time, Faith Schiabor said, describing a call she received from her sister Sigrid Endreson, who held the winning ticket for the Pick 6 prize. With Sandy, with the economy today, everybodys really hurting. This is definitely going to help everyone; its going to help Ocean County because most of us live here, she said. At a news conference at a community center Thursday, jokes and jocularity mixed with some tears as the siblings described their struggle to recover from the widespread damage brought by Sandy to the Toms River area. John Endreson, 69, became emotional when he described rebuilding his home after Sandy ripped through. The hardest part was seeing other people that were devastated, he said. I was able to redo my house and help my family and my brothers. I was quite fortunate. I just feel so lucky. And this is just the icing on the cake. Endreson added some levity when he poked fun at one of his brothers who had just given reporters a lesson in pronouncing his last name. I dont care how you pronounce it, how you spell it, as long as I can cash the check, Endreson said. Sigrid Endreson said she bought the tickets and forgot about them for about two weeks before going down to a supermarket to check the numbers. When one came back with the message See cashier, she ran it through again before taking it up to the window and getting the good news. I started to cry, she said. I called my sister to come get me. I didnt think I was going to make it. I said, I think I won the lottery. The siblings father emigrated from Norway to New Jersey, where he met their mother, whose family owned a farm in East Brunswick. It was their mother, Flossie, who had played the lottery for years, a tradition continued by her children, who began pooling their money after her death about 10 years ago. The family has decided to take a lump sum payment of $14 million, which is worth about $10 million after taxes. In addition to the 17 siblings, who range in age from 53 to 76, three children of one of the siblings whose father died recently will share in the winnings, family members said Thursday. They declined to specify how the money would be divided. US: Russia is firing across border into Ukraine Associated PressKIEV, Ukraine Russia is launching artillery attacks from its soil on Ukrainian troops and preparing to move heavier weaponry across the border, the U.S. and Ukraine charged Friday in what appeared to be an ominous escalation of the crisis. Russia accused Washington of lying and charged Ukraine with firing across the border on a Russian village. It also toughened its economic measures against Ukraine by banning dairy imports. Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for Ukraines National Security and Defense Council, said five salvos of heavy rockets were fired across the border near the town of Kolesnikov in the Luhansk region in the countrys east. A border crossing point near Marynovka was fired on twice with mortars, also from the Russian side, while Ukrainian forces shot down three Russian drones, Lysenko said. If true, the allegations mean Moscow is playing a more direct role in the fighting than it has been accused of up to now a dangerous turn in what is already the gravest crisis between Russia and the West since the end of the Cold War. In addition, Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, said that the U.S. has seen powerful rocket systems moving closer to the Ukraine border and that they could be put into the hands of the Russian-backed separatists as soon as this weekend. It wasnt clear what those developments mean for the international investigation into the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17. U.S. authorities believe the separatists shot it down with a missile, perhaps in the mistaken belief it was a military plane. A small group of Dutch and Australian investigators combed the sprawling, unsecured field where the plane came down on July 17, taking notes and photos as their governments prepared police detachments they hope can protect the crash site and help bring the last of the 298 victims home. U.S. officials said this week that they had new evidence that Russia intended to deliver heavier and more powerful multiple rocket launchers to the separatists. Warren said Friday that the delivery could happen at any time, adding its that close to the border. Warren also corroborated Ukrainian reports of artillery fire from Russia. He said there was no indication Ukraine had shelled Russia. Russias Foreign Ministry responded to U.S. allegations about cross-border shelling by saying: Facts and details to confirm these lying contentions do not exist. Associated PressDutch investigators examine pieces of the crashed Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 Friday in the village of Rassipne, Donetsk region, eastern Ukraine.
A12SATURDAY, JULY26, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE in Homosassa, too. Theres no pretense here. Everyone is treated the same whether youre rich or poor. My son was raised here and now hes an accountant, said Jeff Beeler, a local boat captain. In Homosassa, businesses were doing well even before the ecotourism boom of recreational scallop harvesting. Its nice when everyone can benefit from a good scallop season, but none of them are dependent on scallops to survive. Thats due to the large number of residents who support their community because these people are our friends and neighbors. I live and work in Homosassa. We have everything here diving, skiing, fishing, golfing and so much more, said Chad Halleen, vice president of Love Honda and Chevrolet. This is a community that stands behind itself and is a great community to raise kids. As the president of the Boys & Girls Club we have money to operate thanks to donations from many Homosassa residents. And Homosassa is a friendly and a relatively low-crime hamlet, by comparison to many communities in the Sunshine State. Residents walk down their streets without fear; neighbors still help those in need; and friendly townspeople are happy to assist lost visitors in finding their way to The Freezer, or any of the other uniquely Homosassa establishments. People love it here. When someone from up North comes down here for a visit, the next thing you know they moved here because its a great place to live, said local resident Doug Bossick. Pete Parker added, This is a little patch of paradise. This is what the real community of Homosassa is made of. As with all communities, there are challenges here that are common in todays society, but there are always concerned and caring people working behind the scenes in an effort to help those at risk or in need. While those in many other communities are in search of the next best thing, those who know the Homosassa lifestyle, including resident Deb Fick, say they want to preserve their corner of the world just as it is. Thats because the way it is is something special. Homosassa is genuinely a one-of-a-kind place.

The Southeastern Conference has become the most popular jumping-off point for underclassmen looking for a head start on NFL careers, creating more spots to fill around the league with preseason camps approaching. No league has had nearly as many players leaving early to pursue NFL careers over the past eight years, and LSU has had the most of any program two years running. We do lead college football in three-and-outs, Tigers coach Les Miles said. Its not a distinction coaches particularly covet except perhaps to juice the sales pitch to teenage recruits already dreaming of their first NFL paycheck. It also creates some potential headaches for those who have sometimes unexpectedly more job openings leading into August, not that coaches around the country have much sympathy. LSU has lost 18 underclassmen to the draft over the past two years. Since the leagues title run began in 2007, the SEC has had nearly as many early departures drafted (109) as the next two leagues combined. The Pacific-12 (57) and Atlantic Coast Conference (54) rank second and third, according to research by STATs, Inc. The 49 first-round selections among underclassmen during that span tops the Pac-12, ACC and Big Ten combined (44). The exodus can affect the quality of play at certain positions even with a new wave of fourand five-star recruits coming in annually around the SEC, which had its seven-year run of producing BCS champions halted by Florida State in January. Alabama had three junior cornerbacks picked in the first round from 2010 to 2013, and a position of strength became a weak link last season with several young players thrust into big roles. I think we recruit a lot of good players in this league, said Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban, who played 14 freshmen last season. See GOLF/ Page B3 Les Miles Nick Saban See SEC TO NFL/ Page B3 Thomas, Glavine and Maddux into baseball shrine Sunday Associated PressCOOPERSTOWN, N.Y.Frank Thomas was always driven to excel, and that sure served him well.I was never that blue-chip prospect, he said. I had to outwork my opponents. Hard to imagine now that Thomas was ever anything except a huge star. For Thomas, the 6-foot-5, 240-pound former Chicago White Sox slugger known as the Big Hurt, life has come full circle from awe-struck rookie in 1990 to baseball royalty. Thomas was elected in January to the Hall of Fame, along with pitchers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine. Also to be inducted Sunday are managers Joe Torre, Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox, who were selected in December. This is the top 1 percent in all of baseball that gets in the Hall of Fame, said Thomas, the first player elected to the Hall of Fame who spent more than half of his time as a designated hitter. As a kid, the big dream is being a professional. But to make it to the Hall of Fame? Come on, youve got to pinch yourself. Im very fortunate it happened for me, especially first ballot. Thomas won AL MVP awards in 1993 and 1994 and finished his 19-year career with a .301 batting average, 521 homers and 1,704 RBIs. He also won the 1997 AL batting title and helped show that in more recent times a power hitter could also be selective at the plate. Thomas played 16 years for the White Sox and established himself as the best hitter in franchise history. Hes the only player in major league history to log seven straight seasons with a .300 average, 20 homers, 100 RBIs and 100 walks. Heady territory for a guy who didnt take baseball seriously until he was 12 and many thought would end up as a star tight end in the NFL because of the devastating blocks he delivered. Hitting was something I took very serious. The way I swung the bat at times, youd think I was 5-foot-9 and 160 pounds, said Thomas, who decided to focus solely on baseball as a sophomore at Auburn. But I cared about getting hits and scoring runs. A lot of people didnt know that about my game. Yes, I hit a lot of home runs, drove in a lot of runs, but there were many days that I was just content getting singles and getting on base and letting the other guys drive me in. Just as impressive: Thomas, Babe Ruth, Mel Ott and Ted Williams, are the only players in major league history to retire with a career batting average of at least .300, 500 home runs, 1,500 RBIs, 1,000 runs scored and 1,500 walks. The effect of the Steroids Era was front and center at last years induction ceremony. The 2013 class consisted of Jacob Ruppert, umpireAtlanta Braves pitcher Tom Glavine throws a pitch March 1, 2008, against the Houston Astros during a spring training baseball game in Kissimmee. Glavine will be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday in Cooperstown, N.Y. along with Greg Maddux, Frank Thomas and managers Joe Torre, Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox.Associated Press Frank Thomas See HOF/ Page B3
Associated PressST. PETERSBURG David Price won his sixth start in a row, Evan Longoria hit a three-run double and the Tampa Bay Rays earned their eighth straight victory, beating the Boston Red Sox 6-4 on Friday night. Price (11-7) struck out 10 over eight innings. He tied the team record shared by Matt Moore and Scott Kazmir for victories in consecutive starts. This was Prices first game against Boston since he hit David Ortiz with a fastball on May 30, setting off a verbal skirmish between the stars. There was no trouble between them this time. Ben Zobrist got his fourth hit, an RBI double that made it 3-all in the Rays seventh. Later in the inning, Longoria delivered his goahead hit off Junichi Tazawa (1-2). Jake McGee gave up a run in the ninth and got his 10th save. Desmond Jennings homered off Boston starter Jon Lester.AMERICAN LEAGUE Yankees 6, Blue Jays 4NEW YORK Ichiro Suzuki homered for the first time since last August, prolonging extended slumps against the New York Yankees for Mark Buehrle and the Toronto Blue Jays. Suzuki hit a go-ahead, three-run shot in the third inning, and the Yankees overcame an early deficit to beat the Blue Jays 6-4 for their 17th straight home win against Toronto. Jose Bautista hit two homers to reach 20 for the fifth straight season. He also doubled and drove in four runs, but Buehrle couldnt hold leads of 3-0 and 4-2. The All-Star left-hander dropped to 1-12 against the Yankees, including 10 straight losses over the past decade. New York won for the seventh time in eight games since the All-Star break and moved one game in front of the third-place Blue Jays in the AL East. The Yankees are 26-10 against Toronto since September 2012.Rangers 4, Athletics 1ARLINGTON, Texas Jerome Williams pitched six solid innings while becoming the team-record 31st pitcher used this season by the Texas Rangers, and they beat AL Westleading Oakland 4-1. Elvis Andrus had a triple among his two hits and scored twice for the Rangers, who had lost their seven previous home games in July and were coming off a 2-5 road trip out of the All-Star break. Neftali Feliz, back in the closer role after Joakim Soria was traded to Detroit earlier this week, worked a scoreless ninth while giving up a hit and a walk for his first regular-season save since 2011. His last opportunity, before moving to the rotation and then getting hurt, was a blown save in Game 6 of the 2011 World Series against St. Louis. The Athletics still have the best record in the majors at 63-39, and they have a 22 1/2-game division lead over last-place Texas, which has won only six of its last 33 games.Royals 6, Indians 4KANSAS CITY, Mo. Pinch-hitter Billy Butlers two-run homer with two outs in the eighth inning sent the Kansas City Royals over the Cleveland Indians 6-4 for their fourth straight win. Butler connected against John Axford, sending a drive over the Royals bullpen in left field. Butler was hitting just .200 in his previous 20 games with two RBIs before pinch-hitting for Raul Ibanez. Kelvin Herrera (2-2) pitched a scoreless eighth and Aaron Crow worked around a leadoff double in the ninth to earn his second save in four chances. Royals closer Greg Holland, who had pitched in the three previous games, was unavailable. Carlos Carrasco (3-4) gave up a single to Salvador Perez before Butlers home run. Perez, who had three hits, and Mike Moustakas had back-to-back home runs to open the second.NATIONAL LEAGUE Cubs 7, Cardinals 6CHICAGO Luis Valbuena hit a decisive two-run homer in the seventh inning, and the Chicago Cubs overcame a three-run deficit to hand the St. Louis Cardinals its fourth straight loss, 7-6. The teams combined for five home runs and 23 hits with a persistent wind at their backs. The Cardinals tied the score 5-5 on solo homers by Matt Carpenter and Matt Holliday in the fifth inning. Pinchhitter Oscar Taveras singled to break the tie in the sixth, but the lead was short-lived. Kevin Siegrist (1-2) hit Anthony Rizzo with a full-count pitch to lead off the seventh. One batter later, Valbuena sent hit a first-pitch homer into the bleachers in center field. Justin Grimm (3-2) pitched a scoreless inning for the win. Hector Rondon retired the side in the ninth for his 12th save in 15 chances.Nationals 4, Reds 1CINCINNATI Denard Span matched Cincinnatis hit total with his four singles, and Tanner Roark allowed only three singles over seven innings, leading the Washington Nationals to a 4-1 victory that extended their surge and the Reds slump. The Nationals won for the seventh time in nine games. They are 56-44, the second-best mark after 100 games in franchise history. The 2012 club went 60-40 on its way to the NL East title. The Reds remain stalled since the All-Star break, dropping all seven games for their longest losing streak in five years. Its the first time they have lost their first seven games after the All-Star break since 1991, when they dropped eight in a row. Span had four singles, stole a base and drove in a run off Alfredo Simon (12-5), who has lost both starts since his first All-Star selection. The Nationals piled up nine hits, two walks and three runs off Simon in only 4 1/3 innings.Phillies 9, Diamondbacks 5PHILADELPHIA (AP) Domonic Brown homered, doubled and drove in three runs to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 9-5 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Grady Sizemore had three hits, including the 1,000th of his career, with a double and an RBI for Philadelphia, which had a rare offensive outburst. The Phillies, who entered 12th in the NL in runs, scored at least nine for the eighth time this season and improved to 10-0 when reaching eight runs. Kyle Kendrick (5-10) allowed three runs and six hits in 5 2/3 innings. It was the first win for Kendrick in his eighth career start against the Diamondbacks, giving the right-hander a victory over every NL team. Alfredo Marte hit his first career homer, a grand slam, and Aaron Hill had three hits for Arizona.Padres 5, Braves 2ATLANTA Rookie Jesse Hahn allowed only three hits in six innings to remain unbeaten on the road and the San Diego Padres beat Atlanta 5-2 to continue their recent success against the Braves. Hahn (6-2) allowed one run as he improved to 4-0 in four road starts. The Padres had 13 hits 12 singles to beat Alex Wood (7-8). Tommy Medica drove in a run and had a career-high four hits. Chris Denorfia had three hits and an RBI for San Diego. The Padres, who were 5-1 against the Braves in 2013, have won five of their last six series against Atlanta since early in 2011. The Braves fell 2 1/2 games behind first-place Washington in the NL East. Wood allowed five runs, four earned. He gave up a career-high 12 hits, including three infield singles, in five innings.Mets 3, Brewers 2MILWAUKEE Lucas Duda hit a two-run home run in the top of the ninth inning to lead the New York Mets to a 3-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. The Mets trailed 3-0 entering the ninth inning, but Daniel Murphy led off with a double off closer Francisco Rodriguez (4-4), who blew his fourth save of the season. David Wright followed with an RBI single. Duda hit the first pitch he saw from Rodriguez into the Mets bullpen in right field. It was his career-high 17th home run of the season and his third in the last four games. Carlos Torres (5-4) pitched the eighth inning to get the win. Jenrry Mejia gave up a leadoff walk to pinchhitter Jonathan Lucroy, but got the next three outs to record his 14th save in 16 chances. The loss broke the Brewers fourgame winning streak. The home run spoiled a sparkling performance by Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo, who allowed four hits over 7 2/3 innings.

What it does for me, and what it does for our team, I guess is what I should say, is the players turn over more quickly so you play more players. Its not that those players arent good players, but in some cases they might be playing a little bit before theyre ready to play. Alabama will have five-star freshmen Tony Brown and Marlon Humphrey vying for playing time at cornerback when camp starts. The SEC has had 60 underclassmen enter the draft the past two years, counting players who graduated but had eligibility remaining. Not all have been hot commodities. The latest group had six juniors picked in the first round and nine go undrafted, nearly one-third of the 28 SEC players who declared for the draft. Former LSU and NFL defensive lineman Marcus Spears said the players leaving creates a big challenge in having enough depth to overcome injuries and other issues, and forces coaches like Miles to plan ahead in recruiting. You have to be able to look out maybe a year or two years in advance and kind of start honing in on those guys that can come in and replace them and play right away, said Spears, now an analyst for the SEC Network. When you lose those guys, it is a huge void, especially those underclassmen that apply for the draft. Having guys in the stable is very important. The good news for newcomers: There are plenty of opportunities for playing time, partly because of players not sticking around for senior seasons. Here are a few:Texas A&M quarterback Kyle Allen is competing to replace 2012 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel.LSU tailback Leonard Fournette, considered the nations top-rated prospect, should carve out a role for himself after Jeremy Hill and Alfred Blue both left with eligibility remaining.Alabamas Cam Robinson is the apparent front-runner to replace left tackle Cyrus Kouandjio.SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE On the AIRWAVES TODAYS SPORTS AUTO RACING 8 a.m. (CNBC) Formula One Hungarian Grand Prix, Qualifying. 9 a.m. (ESPN2) NASCAR Sprint Cup: John Wayne Walding 400 at The Brickyard, Final Practice. 11 a.m. (FS1) NASCAR K&N Pro Series: State Line.

DeLeat, trying to become the first Canadian winner in the event since 1954, had a 63. Stanley shot 67. Furyk made four straight birdies on Nos. 11-14 on his opening nine and added birdies on Nos. 1, 6 and 8. He won the last of his 16 PGA Tour titles in 2010. The 47-year-old Petrovic was the last player to get in the field, grabbing a spot when Benjamin Alvarado withdrew Tuesday. Petrovic won his lone PGA Tour title in New Orleans in 2005. Graeme McDowell had a 65 to join Scott Brown, Andrew Svoboda and Justin Hicks at 7 under. Brown and Svoboda shot 66, and Hicks had a 67. Michael Putnam, tied for the first-round lead with Petrovic, was 6 under after a 70. Matt Kuchar also was 6 under after a 65.US rebounds to win twice in International CrownOWINGS MILLS, Md. The United States shuffled its lineup in the second round of the International Crown and got the desired result, beat Spain twice to earn its first points in the eight-country competition. Lexi Thompson and Cristie Kerr took control on the back nine against Belen Mozo and Beatriz Recari in a 3-and-2 win, and Paula Creamer and Stacy Lewis held on to beat Azahara Munoz and Carlota Ciganda 2 up. One day earlier, the top-seeded U.S. lost twice to Taiwan and was the only country without a point. Thailand leads Pool A with five points, followed by Taiwan and the U.S. with four points apiece and Spain with three. Japan stands atop Pool B with 6 points. South Korea has four points and Sweden and Australia each have three.Horsey in halfway lead at Russian OpenMOSCOW David Horsey shot a second-round 68 for a two-stroke lead at the halfway mark of the Russian Open. The 29-year-old Englishman dropped two shots in his first four holes but then birdied four of the last six to move to 11 under in sunny conditions on the Tseleevo Golf and Polo Club course near Moscow. The double European Tour winner just one of three players inside the worlds top 200 competing here is clear of Belgium rookie Thomas Pieters who also shot 68. GOLFContinued from Page B1 Hank ODay and catcher Deacon White all three had been dead for more than 70 years and was picked by a select 16-member committee. It marked just the second time in 42 years that members of the Baseball Writers Association of America failed to elect anyone. Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, and Roger Clemens all linked to steroids didnt even come close in their first year of eligibility. That was not lost on Thomas. I played in an era that people are going to be thinking about for a long time, said Thomas, who was plagued by injuries in his later years. Im proud that I stuck to my guns and did things the right way, the proper way. Induction day probably will seem like a reunion of sorts for Maddux, Glavine, and Cox, who were mainstays together on the Atlanta Braves for a decade. To have the opportunity to go in with two guys that were a teammate and a manager for a long time, guys that were such a big part of my career but also helped make me a better player, thats a great opportunity, Glavine said. Every once in a while, Ill have some moments where its hard to get my brain around whats going on. Maddux was elected by an overwhelming margin, receiving 97.2 percent of the votes from the BBWAA. He won 355 games, four straight Cy Young Awards and a record 18 Gold Gloves. Glavine, who was selected by nearly 92 percent of the voters, had 305 wins and two Cy Young Awards. Both Maddux and Glavine relied on pinpoint control to get the job done, changing speed and location on their pitches to keep hitters guessing. Maddux won Cy Youngs from 1992-95 (Randy Johnson is the only other pitcher to win four straight), completing his impressive run with two remarkable years. During the strike-shortened 1994 season, Maddux went 16-6 with a career-best 1.56 ERA the cumulative NL ERA was 4.21 and the next year finished 19-2 with a 1.63 ERA. Glavine was on the mound when the Braves won Game 6 to clinch the 1995 World Series and give the city of Atlanta its lone major sports title. The lefty pitched one-hit ball over eight innings in a 1-0 victory over Cleveland. I competed against those guys. They knew how to pitch, said Thomas, picked on nearly 84 percent of ballots. They were warriors. Considering the size of this induction class it equals those of 1971, 1955 and 1953 as the largest ever and the imposing credentials of the inductees, officials are expecting a very large crowd as the Hall of Fame continues the celebration of its 75th anniversary. Heck, theyll need extra seats just for Torres entourage. Im looking forward to a huge turnout, said Thomas, whos from Georgia. Im so happy and proud. To go in with the three most iconic managers of my time, it doesnt get any better than that, to be a part of that group. HOFContinued from Page B1 Injured G Carl Nicks, Bucs agree to part waysTAMPA The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are moving on without injured offensive lineman Carl Nicks, who appeared in just nine games over two seasons after signing a five-year, $47.5 million contract in free agency. In a brief statement released on the opening day of training camp, the Bucs and the two-time Pro Bowl guard mutually agreed to sever ties Friday. Nicks, 29 didnt miss a game in four seasons with New Orleans, however a left toe injury two years ago and the recurrence of a MRSA infection in 2013 kept him off the field for most of his stay with the Bucs. Nicks said in a statement that stepping away from football was by no means an easy decision, but he thinks its best for him, his family and the Bucs.Derrick Brooks hired as appeals officer in NFLEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Brooks has been hired by the NFL and the players union as an appeals officer. The former Tampa Bay star, who will be inducted into the hall Aug. 2, replaces Matt Birk, now the NFLs director of football development. Brooks will hear player appeals of onfield discipline. After playing 14 seasons with Tampa Bay and leading the Buccaneers to their only Super Bowl title, Brooks has served as president of the Tampa Bay Storm in the Arena Football League since 2011. Brooks will join former NFL player and coach Ted Cottrell as the appeals officers.Navardauskas wins Stage 19 of Tour de FranceBERGERAC, France Lithuanias Ramunas Navardauskas won the 19th Stage of the Tour de France in a breakaway in a downpour into the town of Bergerac. Italys Vincenzo Nibali retained the overall leaders yellow jersey and is expected to take it home with him when the three-week cycling showcase ends Sunday. The Garmin-Sharp rider stole away from the pack late in the trek northward from Maubourguet to Bergerac. The top standings didnt change.From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS Greg Maddux

Though he started the season with modest ambitions in the Mini Stock class at the Citrus County Speedway, the 57-year-old three-time champion, in his first full season in the division, now finds himself obligated to compete each week as he leads in points with five feature wins and six heat victories. I came out at the beginning of the year to help them fill the field and had no intention of running for points, Ryan said after his latest win last Saturday. The next thing you know youre leading the points, so you have to come out. Thats what I dont like about running for points. (Today) will be six weeks straight. Ryan doesnt mind all the racing. Hes been doing it for 21 years. He just likes to keep it all in perspective. Im just having fun, he said. I used to run for points and I stopped. Its much more fun not running for points. When you have a controversy, people go crazy over the points at the end of the year. You just cant lose sight of what youre here for to have a good time. A lot of these people take this way too seriously. And I used to too, probably. I was one of them. But Ive learned that were here to have fun. It doesnt matter what class youre in, if youre competitive, if you know have a shot at winning, its fun. Ryan first fell into racing as a 12-year-old, growing up in Ft. Lauderdale. A guy down the street had a racecar a ford Super Stock. I started being a pest. I got in the way, hanging around and finally he told me to do stuff just to get me out of his way. Eventually, he started taking me to the track with him. Ryan got away from the sport, but never lost his spark. He later got his start as a driver at Dade Countys nowdefunct Hialeah Speedway, the same storied 1/3 mile track where current Pure Stock points leader Larry Welter Sr. made his start. Twenty years went by and I didnt even go to the racetrack, Ryan recalled. When I was 36, my business was doing okay, and I was recently divorced, so I said if I was ever going to do it now was the time. Ryan started in Pure Stocks and later earned Rookie of the Year honors and a points championship in Street Stocks, before making his way into the Sportsman class. He says Hialeahs unusually flat banks proved an invaluable training ground. It had a lot of history, he said. It was so flat that water would run against the walls if it rained. If you could drive there and set your car there, you could go anywhere and be fast. We used to go over to Punta Gordato to race, and those cars had a lot more motor than we had. But we handled so much better that we were competitive. After racing nearly every asphalt speedway in the state, he considers Citrus, where hes raced since 2003, his favorite of current tracks. This is a drivers track. A lot of these tracks you have to bump the people out of the way to get by them, push them up. Here, its a two-groove track, so you can take your car up to the outside and get around people, he said. Its my favorite, next to the (now-closed) big Lakeland track (USA International Speedway), which was a 3/4 mile track. Ryan lives in Bushnell, but his business Ryan-Markland Signs is located close enough to the speedway that he can drive his Mini Stock to the track from his shop. He does sign and lighting work for the speedway. I try to help the track out as much as I can, he said. Recently, he did the lettering on his friend Jerry Daniels new racecar, the No. 20 that was previously owned by Dr. Shannon Kennedy, who helps sponsor Ryan along with NAPA Auto Parts through his Floral City Animal Clinic. Daniels is second in points to Ryan. While dominating in his class, Ryan remains well-liked and respected among his competitors, and is looked up to by younger drivers like Mark Patterson, who consider him a racing legend. Thats one thing I love about this class, Ryan said, were all friends and we all get along. Therere no hard feelings. If there is a problem, you get out of the car and go talk to them no wrecking guys on purpose. Ryan was in the Sportsman class when he first came to Citrus, but the financial cost of adjusting to new rules was too prohibitive. I spent so much money to make the car legal, he said, And then the next year they changed the classes and wanted me to spend a few more thousand dollars to go slower. So I parked the car, and a friend of mine had a Hobby Stock and said, Drive my car. We did well in that, and had a lot of fun. When Citrus introduced Pure Stocks in 2007, Ryan reeled off back-to-back points titles its first couple of seasons. He initially acquired his current No. 33 Mini Stock for his 15-year-old son Casey. Hes not ready to start driving, Ryan said. Hes involved in a lot of other things. Ryans only concern with his new class is its use of racing tires over street-legal DOT tires. In Pure Stocks, we ran DOT tires, which you can get a lot more life out of, he said. I wish these cars ran on DOT tires. Wed all go slower, but wed all be on the same tires, so wed be even. You could run a couple months on those tires. Because of cost, its the one thing I didnt want to do run on racing tires. Im buying tires every three or four races, and I should probably switch them more often than that. Theyre a little more expensive and they dont last as long. Mini Stocks race at Citrus today. BUTCH CRAWFORD /For the ChronicleBill Ryan, 57, crosses the finish line in his No. 33 car at the Citrus County Speedway 57-year-old Bill Ryan doesnt worry about points, despite leading Mini Stock Just having fun SEANARNOLD CorrespondentSprint cars make backto-back runs at the Citrus County Speedway, starting with todays Safety-Kleen TBARA Sprint Series. Its the first TBARA (Tampa Bay Area Racing Association) event of the season for Citrus, as well as its first winged sprint event of the year. The track will also host TBARAs Frank Riddle Memorial Winged Sprints on Oct. 18. Longtime Citrus standout Shane Butler has a Non-Winged Sprints win at Citrus under his belt this year, and leads in the TBARA series points after three second-place finishes in four events. His win at Citrus on June 7 saw the disqualification of top-finisher Jimmy Alvis, a fellow TBARA competitor, for tire prepping. Ben Fritz trails Butler by seven points in the TBARA standings, while Joey Aguilar, with a pair of feature wins on the season, sits third. Scotty Adema edged out Sport Allen for a feature win in the series most recent outing on May 10, at New Smyrna Speedway. First-year Sprint driver Herb Neumann Jr., a 14-time champion from Super Late Models, is coming off his best finish in Non-Winged Sprints. He placed second, behind Tampas Mickey Kempgens, in Butlers No. 18 ride at Citrus on July 5. Todays racing card also includes the Sportsman, Street Stocks, Modified Mini Stocks, Pure Stocks, Mini Stocks and regular Figure 8s (Street Stocks and Pure Stocks) classes. After two Figure 8s races, just two points separate leader Eric Sharrone and returning back-to-back champion Jimmy Kruse. Sharrone, who also leads in Pro Figure 8s with three wins, overcame a back-row start to dominate for his win on June 7. Jay Witfoth, the 2012 Sportsman champion from Beverly Hills, survived a battle with Charlie Brown to secure his third feature win on the season on June 21, to extend his points lead in the Sportsman class. Kevin Harrod is hoping to pick up where he left off at the end of June, before the July 11 rainout, and make it three in a row in his Modified Mini class. In between his recent pair of Mod Mini feature wins, Harrod picked up a win in Mini Stocks in the No. 20 now ran by Jerry Daniels. Last Saturday, Larry Welter Jr. won his fifth feature at Citrus this season in substituting for his father, Larry Welter Sr., helping the latter maintain his lead in the points standings. The inimitable Tim Wilson and his Traes Tree Service team will try to make it a dozen feature wins on the season in Street Stocks.

ust when you think theres nothing new under the sun, something new comes along. Theres a new field of psychology called wantology. Its an actual field of expertise where wantologists help people discern or define their wants and desires and then help them work out a plan to achieve them. Thats what I want a wantologist! Actually, my wants are simple: I want everything to go the way I think it should go. I want my prayers to be answered, plus I want to be able to eat whatever I want without gaining weight and I want to be able to dance. Id love a world without pain and sadness, disease, crime, earthquakes, tornadoes or bugs that bite. Snakes could go away, too. And anyone who wants a job should have one. There may be more things on my want list, but right now that covers the basics. Is there a wantologist who can help me? The problem with getting what you want is that sometimes its not all its cracked up to be. A few years ago, I discovered fancy alcoholic beverages that taste like ice cream or fruit punch and decided that what I really, really wanted was to be a sophisticated martini person. At that time, I knew an innovative mixologist who let me try sips of his recipes. Eventually, I began thinking about these fancy martinis all the time and dreaming about the day I would have a whole one all to myself. I started studying cocktails, searching for the perfect concoction, and found one on a bartenders app on my phone. I dont remember the name of the drink, but it had about five different flavored liqueurs, plus enough vodka to pickle a mule. The big day arrived when I decided that I could no longer go without this delicious choco-nutty-butterscotchyflavored adult beverage of my wildest dreams. Im not proud of this, and Ive already told my pastor, but I actually sat through a church service thinking about this drink. After church it was a Saturday night I met my husband at the martini bar and showed the bartender what I wanted from the app on my phone. He looked at me and said, This will make you walk sideways. Are you sure you want it? I was never more sure of anything ever in my entire life before or since and told him so. He shook his head, laughed and told my husband to take away my car keys. Salivating in eager anticipation, I watched him work his martini magic. He set it in front of me, all frosty cold and enticing and it tasted every bit as amazing as I had hoped. But there was this woman sitting next to me who was talking too loud. And the room began to spin. I may or may not have slipped off my chair and I think I yelled someones name across the room. As I finished my drink and wanted to punch the loudtalking woman I heard God say, I gave you what you wanted. But its not what you wanted, was it? No, it wasnt what I wanted. And I do this all the time. Whether its wanting to be a sophisticated martini person, wanting to run my kids lives or wanting to change everyone around me, I just want what I want, and I want it to satisfy my soul. Recently, I heard a pastor say that sometimes the things we want are good things relationships to be whole, people to be healed, families to thrive and yet God withholds these very things from us. Not to be cruel or unkind, but for a greater purpose that we may not ever understand. He said, Every problem in my life would either be solved or put in its proper perspective if I really believed God loved me. He was talking about our wants being thwarted, causing us to be angry or disillusioned with God. We think, If you love me, you would give me what I want. Im not talking about fancy martinis, but the deep stuff, the personal stuff, the stuff that makes our pillows wet at night. Sometimes God gives us what we think we want, but it turns out to be something far less. However, in those times, he graciously always gives us himself. Whether we can admit it or not, hes ultimate what we want and we dont need a wantologist to tell us that.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

Come on over to His house, your spirits will be lifted !!! 000GWS9 DIDITANG Associated PressWUXI VILLAGE, China The battle started when a government-hired crew tore down the metal cross atop the one-room church in this village surrounded by rice paddies last month. The next day, a church member used his own welding torch to put it back. He was promptly detained and questioned for 10 hours on the charge of operating a welding business without a license. A week later, the crew came back to remove the cross. Once again, church members put it back up, now tattered and a little shorter. The church in the eastern village of Wuxi, about 480 kilometers (300 miles) south of Shanghai, has had its water and electricity cut off. Officials have attempted to install surveillance cameras and inquired about several church members work and their childrens schooling a veiled threat that jobs and education might be at risk. But the congregation is not giving up. I wont let them take down the cross even if it means they would shoot me dead, said Fan Liangan, 73, whose grandfather helped build the church in 1924. Across Zhejiang province, which hugs Chinas rocky southeastern coast, authorities have toppled or threatened to topple crosses at more than 130 churches. In a few cases, the government has even razed sanctuaries. Authorities say the churches in question had violated building codes, even though they generally wont specify which ones. They also deny that they are specifically targeting churches, and point to the demolition of other tens of thousands of other buildings, religious and non-religious, that have apparently broken regulations. But experts and church leaders in Zhejiang, the only province where the incidents are happening, believe there is a campaign to repress Christianity, which has grown so rapidly as to alarm the atheist Communist government. It comes at a time when Beijing has been tightening ideological controls, placing more restrictions on journalists, rights lawyers many of whom are Christians and political activists since President Xi Jinping took office in early 2013. The incidents speak to the power of symbols, and the emotions they evoke. The cross is the glory of us Christians, said Cai Tingxu, who left his cosmetics shop in Shanghai to protect his hometown church in rural Zhejiang after hearing authorities warned they would tear down the cross. Jesus was nailed to the cross for us. My heart ached to learn that the government wants to remove the cross. Estimates on the numbers of Christians in China vary widely because the government does not count religious affiliation. Official 2010 figures put them at 23 million. These are registered members of the statesanctioned churches, which are closely monitored by the government. But China also has vast numbers of underground believers who meet in secret. The Pew Research Center estimated there were 58 million Protestants in China in 2011, along with 9 million Catholics in the year before. Other experts say there could be more than 100 million. These estimates are up from the widely accepted figure of 1 million Christians in 1950, and may even rival the size of the 85 million-member Communist Party. The churchs dramatic growth and Christians loyalty to God above all else has alarmed authorities, said Yang Fenggang, a Purdue University sociologist and leading expert on religious matters in China. Although Chinese Christians are generally apolitical, their weekly gatherings and mutual support could prove dangerous if the movement adopts political objectives, he said. The church is resilient in resisting government pressures and persecutions. A possible reason Zhejiang province has come under scrutiny is that it is home to Wenzhou, a city of 8 million that has so many churches dotting its streets and hillsides that it is called Chinas Jerusalem. More than a tenth of Wenzhous residents are Protestant Christians some fourth-generation believers the highest proportion of any major Chinese city, according to Cao Nanlai, an anthropologist who has studied and written a book about Christianity in Wenzhou. The high percentage is largely due to early missionary efforts and the citys relative isolation, nestled between the sea and mountains. Half the provinces 4,000 churches are located here. The city is known for its entrepreneurial vigor, and has tens of thousands of family-run workshops making shoes, toys, furniture and other products.

Come on over to His house, your spirits will be lifted !!! 000GWS7 to have applied that same eagerness to starting new churches, Cao said. For years, the citys Christians had close relationships with local authorities, and many believers, ironically, are also members of the ostensibly atheist Communist Party or hold civil servant jobs, he said. City officials even encouraged churches to build big as a way to draw attention and investment from Chinese Christians abroad, and some churches appeared to compete to build the largest sanctuaries and tallest crosses including one that stands 63 meters (200 feet) tall. But late last year, authorities began asking churches not to light up their crosses at night. The reason given was to help reduce carbon emissions, pastors and church members in the city say. The orders appeared to be coming from the provincial government, but were carried out by city officials. Then in April, the local government in Yongjia county suddenly demanded that an unapproved portion of a large church be torn down even though officials had tacitly allowed the church to build five times the approved square footage. Decades of unbridled development and onerous red tape has made it the norm to build before obtaining pages of approval stamps from myriad government agencies. Despite protests from the congregation and supporters, demolition crews tore down the entire structure, and the hillside where it was located is now covered in tree saplings. Since then, rooftop crosses at many churches along major roads in and around Wenzhou have been removed, and vaguely-worded notices against unspecified illegal structures have been delivered to churches in outlying areas. Cao, the scholar on Christianity, said the cross removals and demolitions reflected the occasional flexing of political muscle by authorities to show whos in control. Pastors and church elders say government workers have told them in private that the goal is to remove the crosses. Officials have promised they will stay away from churches if the symbols are removed but have threatened those who resist with demolition. This is clearly discrimination against our religion and to crack down on our belief, said Wang Yunxian, a church elder in Wenzhou. On Monday, several dozen police clashed with people defending the Salvation Christian Church in Wenzhou as police attempted to remove the churchs cross, said Zheng Changye, a 36-year-old member of another church who said he had rushed over to the scene. He said three people were seriously injured and six detained for questioning. In the end, the police left without having taken the cross down, he said. City police contacted Friday said they didnt know about the confrontation. Yang, the Purdue professor, said it was difficult to imagine what sort of building codes the crosses would violate. The only reason I can think of is that the Zhejiang authorities intend to humiliate Christians by taking down the symbol sacred to them, he said. The campaign could be tacitly approved by Beijing, which has not interfered publicly, or it might merely be a political gamble by the provincial leadership to win praises, he said. A senior Zhejiang government official insisted that authorities werent targeting churches, but only structures in violation of codes. Those with ulterior motives are singling out churches, but we also have torn down temples and nunneries, and we have strictly followed the law in removing illegal structures, said the official, who insisted on anonymity because he wasnt permitted to speak on the record to the media. In Yongjia county, the government says it has demolished thousands of illegal structures totaling 3 million square meters, including businesses, residences and religious sites. Cai, the man who left his cosmetics shop in Shanghai, now takes turns with other members to guard Yayu Christian Church in Yaxia village around the clock. They are camped out on a balcony overlooking an expanse of ripening rice paddies to spot any demolition crew coming down the road. Early one morning, watchers spotted a truck approaching and quickly mobilized about 100 people to block the men from coming up the steps to the sanctuary, successfully thwarting them, Cai said. In nearby Zengshan village, after church members received a government warning in early July to remove its cross, members piled up rocks in front of the main gate and dumped a couple of sheds behind it. It also raised banners urging the authorities to respect Chinese law on religious freedom and proper procedures for demolition. The cross is our life, and there is no room for compromise, said Pastor Xie Zuokua. With no other means, we are resorting to our own abilities to defend the cross. To Xie, its clear this is more than just a matter of building code violations. Its the symbol of the death of Jesus and its the symbol that people can be saved, he said. So if they want to come and tear down the cross thats because they are discriminating against us Christians. CHINAContinued from Page C2

BRIEFSContinued from Page C1 Associated PressCONESVILLE, Iowa After 113 years, the Conesville Methodist Church is closing and some expect the historic structure in eastern Iowa will eventually be demolished. On Saturday, church members hosted a sale of some church items. The church is for sale, too, but so far there havent been any offers. Lay leader Terri Fitchner told the Muscatine Journal the closure reflects an aging congregation and no new members. There also has been a troublesome bat infestation. It got to be too much to take care of for us, Fitchner said, noting that at 61, shes the second youngest of the roughly 40 people who make up the congregation. Most are in their 70s and 80s. Its a small rural community, Fitchner said of the 440-person city. The younger people are going to the bigger towns. Fitchner said most members will go to the Methodist church in Nichols, just seven miles away. Although the building is for sale, Fitchner said she thinks its doomed to destruction. After attending the church since the 1960s, 73-year-old Kay Hill said leaving it is difficult. Its just like youre losing a person, Hill said.

PORTLAND, Maine Maines Catholic churches are selling off properties as the Diocese of Portland grapples with declining church attendance and a surplus of under-utilized buildings. Parishes in the diocese have more than 20 churches, convents, rectories and schools on the market. Church leaders said a dozen properties in the diocese have sold for a total of more than $2.4 million since the beginning of 2013. The sales come at a time when Catholic church attendance in the state is falling. The diocese counts 193,392 Catholics in Maine, a decline of nearly 30 percent from 30 years ago, but still the largest religious denomination in the state. Some of the sold churches are nearly as old as the diocese itself, which began in 1853. Father James Lafontaine, pastor of Our Lady of Hope Parish in Portland, said the need to sell churches is hard for parishioners, who associate the buildings with generations of baptisms, weddings, and funerals. Lafontaine hopes to sell St. Patrick Church in Portland, a 50-year-old church that closed in 2013. A school associated with the church sold five years ago and is now condominiums. Its very hard to close a church. And, you know, it should be. People have a lot of their lives caught up in that space, Lafontaine said. It comes down to dollars at some point. To have a healthy future, you have to make decisions. The push to sell properties underscores a larger trend happening in states around the country. Dioceses from Ohio to Louisiana have sold empty church buildings and religious artifacts in an effort to raise money. Some of the dioceses grapple with declining enrollment, while others cite troubles with revenue. The Archdiocese of Boston sold most of its headquarters in 2004 to raise money for legal costs associated with sexual abuse scandals involving its priests. Europe also is not immune, as many German Catholic churches have gone up for sale. In Maine, sold churches include St. Josephs Church in Lewiston, where the cornerstone was placed in 1864. Central Maine Healthcare bought the building for $125,000 last year with the intent of turning it into a parking lot, though it is currently still standing. Elsewhere in town, 1887-built St. Patricks Church sold for $120,000. Church sales benefit the individual parishes, which make recommendations to the bishop if they want to sell a church, said diocese spokesman Dave Guthro. The denomination has 55 parishes in Maine, with some having only one church and some having as many as five, he said. Guthro said some of the churches are in disrepair; others suffer from lagging attendance, but the decision to close and sell a church is always a difficult one.

SATURDAY, JULY26, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Albert Einstein said, A theory can be proved by experiment; but no path leads from experiment to the birth of a theory. At the bridge table, leads are very important. And not only do you have to lead the right suit, but you must also be careful which card you select. In this deal, South is in four hearts. West leads the diamond eight. How should East plan the defense? Norths two-no-trump response was the Jacoby Forcing Raise, guaranteeing at least fourcard heart support and game-forcing values. South rebid four hearts to show a minimum opening bid and no singleton or void. West led a diamond because that suit was stronger than his clubs. East knew that his partners lead was top of nothing. And it couldnt be a singleton, because that would have given South five diamonds and a singleton or void, which he had denied in the auction. Also, now dummy had diamond winners on which South could discard losers. East realized that his side had to take, in order, one diamond, one spade and two clubs. But how to get West to win his spade trick and shift to a club? At trick two, East carefully led the spade nine, the high card in principle denying an honor in the suit. West got the message and defeated the contract. If East had led the spade two, West would have probably put in a lower spade to force out dummys king, or won with his ace and returned the suit. Remember, a low lead from length expresses an interest in trying to win tricks in that suit.

(N) (Live)Funny Home VideosFunny Home Videos Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married for 10 years. We have no children. My biggest problem is his weight. He has put on a lot of poundage in the past several years and is definitely not the guy I married. I dont claim to be a princess, but I stay pretty fit. I am not attracted to him sexually because of his rolls of fat. I am saddened. We love each other dearly, but my husband refuses to take walks with me and will not help around the house. I know I should love him with my heart, so how do I get around this problem? California Dreamin Dear California: You cannot force your husband to do anything about his weight. He must want to do it for himself. Tell him you are worried about his health. Ask him to talk to his doctor about his weight (or leave a message for the doctor with your concerns). Explain that his unwillingness to help around the house or work on his weight is undermining your respect for him. Beyond that, please be patient. Try to love him as he is, for all of the other qualities he brings to the marriage and for the things that attracted you to him in the first place. Dear Annie: My fiance and I are getting married in a few months. This will be the second marriage for both of us. We have decided to have a small private ceremony for our immediate family, with an open house for other family and friends. We are sending out invitations for our open house, but I am unsure whether I should register for gifts. What do you think would be the best way to handle this? Gifts are nice, but not necessary. Bride-to-Be Dear Bride: People will want to buy you a wedding present, and a registry helps them know what you want. Its perfectly OK to register. However, it is not appropriate to put this information in the invitation. If someone should ask, you may tell them where you are registered. Dear Annie: I read the letter from Jaded and Voting with Our Wallets, who is upset that people who have never invited her over for a cup of coffee have the nerve to send her an invitation to their childs graduation or wedding. I have the same problem, but with my children. Im always invited to all kinds of parties and showers, but never to the homes of my three children for a meal of any kind. My son and daughter-inlaw lived with me for a year and were not too happy to leave, because I did all the cooking, cleaning and laundry. I finally asked them to find their own place, but they still showed up every weekend to be fed. When they found a house to buy, they had to borrow money from me, even though I hadnt done that for my other children. I insisted they repay it monthly, which they did, but I never heard the end of it from his resentful siblings. I have always loved to cook and entertain, and over the years, Ive had many parties for my extended family. But other than invitations where a gift is required, they have never reciprocated. I never hear from any of them now, and parties go on without me. I have a great-granddaughter who is 2 years old, and Ive never met her. Im 76, waiting for two knee replacements and dont have the money or energy to entertain. At first, I cried not to see my family. I now spend time with people who enjoy being with me and try not to think about how ungrateful and distant my children are. Needless to say, there will be no inheritance when I die.
