The lawsuit was filed Monday in Polk County. Rebecca Sedwick was 12 years old when she leaped to her death at an abandoned concrete plant in September 2013. A month later, the sheriffs office arrested two of her classmates, ages 12 and 14, on charges of aggravated stalking. The charges were later dropped because of insufficient evidence. Sedwicks mother, Tricia Norman, is seeking more than $15,000. CCA: Shelter cost $2.8M MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerThe company that operates the Citrus County jail is offering to build a new $2.8 million animal shelter, so long as the county pays for it. The offer from Corrections Corporation of America spells out that the county can reimburse the cost either by bumping the daily per-inmate cost by $5.25 or paying CCA $51,000 a month until the debt is paid off, according to the CCA proposal. County spokeswoman Tobey Phillips said the staff is waiting for county commission direction beforetaking any action on the CCA offer. She said CCA officials are expected to attend the county commission meeting Tuesday, Aug. 12,to explain the idea. Board Chairman John JJ Kenney is leading the effort to build a new animal shelter. He proposes the shelter be on county property next to the jail so inmatescould work with animals. Phillips said former county administrator Brad Thorpe requested a proposal of CCA on Kenneys behalf. Former county architect Tom Williford sketched a proposed shelterdesign for CCA. Phillips said the county didnt ask Williford for the drawings, and it didnt pay him. She said the county hasnt seen Willifords plans. CCA said it has a Jacksonville contractor lined up to build a 20,900-square-foot John JJ KenneyIf we feel its a fair price, I say go for it. From staff and wire reports MORGAN BROWN/For the ChronicleMatthew Wilson, 9, has been battling the effects of leukemia. Like other boys his age, throwing a baseball around is one of his pastimes. ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerHERNANDOMatthew Wilson is a happy kid. Hes quick-witted, makes funny expressions and loves sports. At home, he is surrounded by pastures with fresh air and room to run with the wind. Throwing a ball around is a typical daily endeavor at the Wilson home. In many ways, hes like any other 9-year-old boy, although the speed with which his strength and energy drain signals that life for Matthew and his family is anything but normal. This is one familys story of combating cancer.Jan. 31, 2013, is a day etched into the minds of Matthews parents, Emmett and Susan Wilson. Matthew was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), an aggressive cancer of the white blood cells. It was a Wednesday morning when Susan noticed that Matthew looked under the weather. He had a cough, but she felt he was OK. Thursday rolled around, and he was very sleepy but showed no other signs of illness. By the weekend, however, he started turning yellow, jaundice-like. On Sunday, my mom started looking at his gums and there was no color, Emmett said. So we took him to the pediatrician on Monday and had blood work done. It came back that his hemoglobin was 4.6, which is incredibly low. And his heart was skipping beats. The Wilsons immediately took their son to All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburg, where he was diagnosed with ALL; he ended up staying there for the next eight days. He endured daily rounds of chemotherapy through a medical port during the induction phase, and a blood transfusion. At the time when your child is first diagnosed, your life gets turned upside down over night, Emmett said. Your life stops right in its tracks. Now you have County would pay off debt with increased inmate charge Leaders plan quick fix for districts Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The Republican-controlled Florida Legislature laid out plans Monday to move ahead quickly and make minimal changes to congressional districts declared illegal by a state judge. Florida legislators will hold a nine-day special session starting on Thursday to redraw the states 27 congressional districts. Circuit Judge Terry Lewis had given legislators until Aug. 15 to draw up a new map that may be used for a special election later this year. Senate President Don Gaetz said that it was the goal of legislative leaders to move forward without delay to remedy the boundaries of the two congressional districts cited by Lewis in his July ruling. Lewis ruled that the districts were drawn to benefit Republicans in violation of the Fair Districts standards adopted by voters four years earlier. The two districts are a sprawling district held by U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown that stretches from Jacksonville to Orlando and a central Florida district held by U.S. Rep. Dan Webster. Because the court held intact 25 of the states 27 congressional districts as the Legislature drew them, I believe we can and should meet the A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerDeputies have arrested and charged a Lecanto man they accuse of robbing a man at gunpoint, making him strip to his skivvies and then hitting him with the gun, causing the firearm to discharge. Joseph Earl Calcagino, 20, of South Scarboro Avenue, is charged with aggravated battery and robbery with a firearm. His bond is $60,000. Calcagino is facing a separate charge of grand theft stemming from shoplifting allegations at the Walmart near Inverness. Deputies were alerted to the area of Haven Street and South Border Avenue in Inverness on Friday afternoon regarding a man who was bleeding from both sides of his face, walking down the street only wearing boxer shorts and one sock. The man had emerged from the area of Trail 9 in the Withlacoochee State Forest, where he was reportedly robbed, stripped of his clothing and hit on the face with the firearm. Investigators said the victim reportedly went to a friends house and was later given a ride to Rexall Drugs by Calcagino and a female friend. The man was at the drug store to fill prescriptions of oxycodone and methadone. The quartet reportedly all Joseph Calcaginobond set at $60,000.

this to deal with. You thought you had problems before, but you dont know what problems are. After the completion of this phase, he was able to go home but had to undergo 29 days of taking steroids, twice a day. He would scream, cry and resist, his dad said in agony for his child. But I dont blame him the stuff was killing him. Those steroids were so awful, but we had to give them to him. I cant even tell you how horrible every night for a month was as he groaned and moaned in pain. In conjunction with his treatments, Matthew had brain lesions and medically induced diabetes. You are just strong through it and do what you have to do for your child. You dont break down and cry, Susan said. The brain lesions are gone now, and there is no evidence that they were there, Emmett said. They were never able to find out the cause, as they sent tests all over the country to find out. We just received a phenomenal amount of support and prayer. There is no doubt in our mind that God healed him. Matthew starts third grade Wednesday at Pleasant Grove Elementary School in Inverness. He will continue monthly maintenance of chemotherapy for another year and a half at All Childrens Hospital.On July 26, Matthew and his family Emmett, Susan, Holly and Ethan joined two other families in receiving the VIP treatment at a Tampa Bay Rays vs. Boston Red Sox game. His doctor called the clinic wanting to know if there were any kids that wanted to go to the game, Susan said. Now-former Boston Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester was their personal tour guide. The longtime Red Sox star was traded to the Oakland Athletics on Thursday. Jon is a cancer survivor and superstar with a phenomenal record, Emmett said. They invited us out onto the field, watched batting practice and even went into the locker room. Jon autographed the ball and glove, took pictures with us and made a mini video clip. To many families, this game would have been a memorable experience, but to the Wilsons it was an answered prayer. Right now we just take it one day at a time, Emmett said. We count our many blessings and thank God for his healing.Contact Chronicle education reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-5635660, ext. 1334, or eworthington@chronicle online.com.A2TUESDAY, AUGUST5, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL 000IY9K NORTH CENTRAL FLORIDAS MOST TRUSTED HEARING AID CENTERS Homosassa 5699 S.

Duke reports dividends Free app available for investorsPATFAHERTY Staff writerDuke Energy will release its second quarter earnings results Thursday, following recent announcement of its quarterly cash dividend on common stock. An earnings conference call for analysts is scheduled that morning to discuss Dukes financial performance for the quarter and provide other business updates. The call will be hosted by Lynn Good, president/chief executive officer, and Steve Young, executive vice president/chief financial officer. Good is expected to discuss changes to Dukes organizational structure and top management. The natural gas plant planned for Citrus County and other proposed Florida generation initiatives, along with the decommissioning of the Crystal River area nuclear plant have been topics at recent quarterly updates. On July 1, Duke declared a quarterly cash dividend on its common stock of 79.5 cents per share, an increase of about 2percent, the same as in 2013, the first full year of Dukes merger with Progress Energy. Growth in the dividend payment is an important part of our investor value proposition, said Good. The growth of our business as well as the strength of our balance sheet supports our ability to continue increasing returns to our shareholders. Duke has paid a quarterly cash dividend on its common stock for 88 consecutive years. Also, it has increased the dividend payment annually since the spinoff of Spectra Energy in 2007. Spectra is building the Sabal Trail natural gas pipeline, which includes a Citrus County connection.Investor appDuke also announced release of an investor app for mobile devices.

Drawn to the great outdoors MORGAN BROWN/For the ChronicleCreating her own unique chalk drawing, Ashley Walsh, a 6-year-old Inverness Primary School first-grader, enjoys a recent field trip to Wallace Brooks Park in Inverness with the rest of her Tadpoles Early Learning Center classmates. Prepare now for primary election Special to the ChronicleWith elections right around the corner, the Citrus County Supervisor of Elections Office offers this voter-ready check list. In brief, here are items for voters to review now: Check voter status. Name change. Address change. Know your polling place. Request a vote-bymail ballot. Information about early voting. Have proper photo and signature ID. Here are the specifics: Name and out-of-county address changes must be submitted on a voter registration application in writing, which requires your signature, date of birth or voter registration number. Vote-by-mail continues to be a popular method of voting. Therefore, your signature becomes even more important. Your signature on the mail ballot envelope must match the signature on file at the elections office. Signatures change over time for many reasons, so now is the time to make sure an updated signature is on record. Early voting dates for the primary election are Aug. 15 to 23, including Sunday, from 10a.m. to 6p.m. Early voting will take place at four sites in the county: the Central Ridge Library, the Crystal River area Supervisor of Elections Office at Meadowcrest, the Homosassa Public Library and the Inverness Government Center. Any eligible registered voter may vote at any of the early voting sites. Voteby-mail ballots can be turned in at any early vote site during the early voting period. Know where your polling place is located. Some changes have occurred that affect voters in precincts 301 and 305. The polling place for precinct 301 has moved from the National Guard Armory on West Venable Street to St. Timothys Lutheran Church, 1070 N. Suncoast Blvd., Crystal River. The armory is undergoing repairs and is unavailable for voting this election cycle. The polling place for Precinct 305, formerly named the Christian Center Church, has been changed to the Apostolic Christian Center; the address remains the same, 7961 W. Green Acres St., Homosassa. The polls are open from 7a.m. to 7p.m. on Election Day. Florida is a closed primary state. This means that voters are limited to choosing candidates in their own party in the primary election; however, in the race for Citrus County Commission District 4, between Scott Carnahan and Winn Webb, both of the candidates are in the Republican Party. Therefore, the race becomes a universal primary and will be decided in the primary election. The District 4 county commission race will be on all ballots Republican, Democratic and non-partisan, allowing all voters to vote in this election. Florida law requires that citizens show photo and signature ID (valid Florida Drivers License or Florida Identification Card) when voting at an early vote site or at the polls on Election Day. Sample ballots are being mailed to voters who have not made a request for a vote-by-mail ballot. Mark the sample ballot and use it as a guide when you go to vote. To request extra copies of the sample ballot, call the elections office at 352-341-6740, or visit www.votecitrus.com. The primary election is Tuesday, Aug. 26. For more information, call the Supervisor of Elections Office at 352341-6740 or visit www.votecitrus.com. Hurricane Bertha no threat Associated PressMIAMI Newly formed Hurricane Bertha was churning northward Monday far from land, posing no direct threat to the U.S. East Coast. The center of the storm is expected to stay offshore as it passes wide of the U.S. mainland over the next few days, and the storm is also likely to miss Bermuda. A forecast map shows that Bertha could brush Canadas easternmost provinces as a post-tropical storm later this week. Theres no direct impact that will be felt on the U.S. East Coast. However, there could be added surf and rip current conditions, said Dennis Feltgen, spokesman for the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami. The storm strengthened to a hurricane Monday morning with maximum sustained winds near 80 mph with little change expected in the next 24 hours. Associated PressThis NOAA satellite image taken at 1:45 p.m. Monday shows an area of dense cloud cover northeast of the Bahamas associated with Hurricane Bertha. Another prominent area of clouds extends from the North Atlantic southwestward along the Eastern Seaboard into Florida due to a stationary boundary, with rain and thunderstorms.

Hallstrom said he experienced traumatic suffering when he had to decline the chance to direct 2002s Catch Me If You Can, which Spielberg went on to direct himself. The trauma was finally resolved, Hallstrom said, when the two filmmakers joined forces on The Hundred-Foot Journey, which Hallstrom directed and Spielberg produced, along with Oprah Winfrey and Ted Talks curator Juliet Blake. Ive been admiring him for a very long time, Hallstrom said of Spielberg, giddily noting the two are about the same age. (Hallstrom is 68, Spielberg is 67.) To work with him as a producer, that was heavenly, Hallstrom said during a recent interview to promote the film. To have him in the editing room for a couple days giving his ideas on it, and to have his comments on the dailies, (was) really helpful. And good ideas for the script, too. So it was like we made it together, me and Steven Spielberg. The Hundred-Foot Journey stars Helen Mirren as the prickly, prideful owner of a Michelin-rated French restaurant who bristles when an Indian family opens their own eatery across the street. The film opens Friday.

Associated PressWASHINGTON James Brady, the affable, witty press secretary who survived a devastating head wound in the 1981 assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan and undertook a personal crusade for gun control, died Monday. He was 73. We are heartbroken to share the news that our beloved Jim Bear Brady has passed away after a series of health issues, Bradys family said in a statement. His wife, Sarah, son, Scott, and daughter, Missy, are so thankful to have had the opportunity to say their farewells. Brady, who spent much of the rest of his life in a wheelchair, died at a retirement community in Alexandria, Virginia, where he lived with his wife. He suffered a bullet wound to his head in the assassination attempt outside the Washington Hilton Hotel on March30, 1981. Although he returned to the White House only briefly, he was allowed to keep the title of presidential press secretary and his White House salary until Reagan left office in January 1989.

passing today. Thinking of him brings back so many memories happy and sad of a time in all of our lives when we learned what it means to play the hand were dealt. I still remember vividly that day in March 1981, when Sarah and I sat together in a tiny room near the emergency room at George Washington University Hospital, trying to comfort each other while we both were gripped with unspeakable fear, Mrs. Reagan said. The bond we established then was unlike any other. A federal law requiring a background check on handgun buyers bears his name, as does the White House press briefing room. Josh Earnest, President Barack Obamas press secretary, said Brady showed his patriotism and commitment to the country by being very outspoken on an issue that was important to him and that he felt very strongly about. Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, said in a statement that because of Bradys work on gun control an estimated 2 million gun sales to criminals, domestic abusers and other dangerous people have been blocked. As a result, countless lives have been saved. In fact, there are few Americans in history who are as directly responsible for saving as many lives as Jim. Of the four people struck by gunfire in the assassination attempt by John Hinckley Jr. later found to be insane Brady was the most seriously wounded.

courts requirements with minimal impact on the rest of the state, Gaetz said in a statement. Thomas Zehnder, one of the attorneys who represented the groups that sued the Legislature, applauded leaders for taking an important first step. But he cautioned that It remains to be seen whether they will produce maps that comply with the constitution. The groups that had challenged the maps had unsuccessfully asked Lewis to draw a new map instead of leaving the job up to legislators. Lewis is scheduled to hold an Aug. 20 hearing to consider the new map. He has also ordered state election officials to draw up a proposed special election schedule even though the judge said he has not made up his mind on whether to order one. Both Gaetz and Weatherford say they will fight any effort to implement a new congressional map during the 2014 elections or in a special election after November. They have argued implementing a map before 2016 would disrupt the elections or disenfranchise voters. Other than the partisan plaintiffs masquerading as voting rights groups, I can find no one who would want a postponed or special election to leave Florida without representation in Congress for months, weeks or even days, said Gaetz, R-Niceville.A8TUESDAY, AUGUST5, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL/STATE 000IX2L Board Certified American Osteopathic Board of Ophthalmology and Otorhinolaryngology Board Certified National Board of Examiners for Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons Ward Eye Center 8490 W.

The remainder of the group was asked to leave the store because of their behavior. The four then began driving toward the woods. According to the report the vehicle, which was described as a red or maroon four-door pickup truck, turned down a dirt road (Trail 9) and then slightly off the road. It was said to be at that moment when Calcagino pulled out a gun and pointed it at the victims face and said: give me all your money, I cant believe that we went through all that for nothing, according to the report. Calcagino reportedly ordered the man out of the vehicle. After the two stepped out of the vehicle, Calcagino reportedly fired two rounds into the ground and demanded all of the victims property. Investigators said the man told Calcagino who until they rode to the store together is said to have been unknown to the victim all he had was the $30 in his front pocket that his wife gave him for the medication, and $300 in his wallet. Calcagino reportedly further demanded the man take off his clothes including his watch and wallet. The man also had 54 Xanax pills on him, according to the report. After the man stripped to his boxers, Calcagino reportedly struck him on the left side of his face with the firearm and the gun discharged. The man fell to the ground again and sustained further injuries. Calcagino reportedly picked up the mans clothes and threw them into the back of the truck and they drove off with the female as the driver. Deputies later found the mans friend whom he initially went to visit and he reportedly corroborated the victims account of events, according to the report. The friend, however, told deputies he stayed in the truck during events in the forests and did not hear a gun go off. Deputies later caught up with Calcagino, but because he was heavily inebriated, he was taken to Citrus Memorial hospital for an assessment. Calcagino was immediately arrested following his release from the hospital and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility. Calcagino declined to speak to investigators.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com. ARRESTContinued from Page A1 animal shelter for $2.2 million. Williford estimated the total cost, including furnishings and architectural costs, at $2.8 million, according to records CCA provided to the county. Phillips said the county doesnt have to bid the project because its CCA, and not the county, that is building the shelter. Kenney said he generally likes CCAs proposal. He said the advantage to the CCA plan is that the sheltercould bebuilt quickly without a hit to the county budget because the payout to CCA is amortized through a $5.25 per-inmate daily increase. If the county chose the $51,000-permonth alternative, it would have the shelter paid off in four and a half years. We would get the shelter a lot sooner and dont have to take it out of our budget in a lump sum right now, Kenney said. Its a possibility to get the shelter built in an expeditious manner. He added: If we feel its a fair price, I say go for it.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

For the RECORD Associated PressFORT LAUDERDALE Eight insurance companies are raising the price of health plans and three are lowering them in Florida through the Affordable Care Act exchange, state insurance officials said Monday. But whether youll pay more or less depends on a complex formula including where you live and how companies are competing in that market. Fourteen companies, including three new insurers, are planning to sell to Floridians through healthcare.gov in 2015. Of the 11 returning plans, eight filed average rate increases ranging from 11 to 23 percent, and three filed rate decreases ranging from 5 to 12 percent. Florida Blue, the largest insurer, is raising its premiums by an average of 18 percent. Humana proposed an average 14 percent increase for its HMOs, while Molina proposed a 12 percent average rate decrease, according to state officials. Floridas increases arent staggering as health insurance rates have risen as much as 20 or 30 percent in recent years. Critics of the health overhaul warned of huge rate increases, a signal they say shows the law isnt working. An individual earning $27,000 a year in Miami will only see a nominal increase. For example, the average premium costs $308 a month in 2015. With a $47 subsidy, thats $261 out of pocket each month. Thats only slightly more than the $245 they paid out of pocket under last years rates, according to an analysis by state officials. A family of four with an income of $51,000 living in Miami may also only see small increases. The average plan cost $1,072 a month, but the family only paid $559 out of pocket last year thanks to a $559 subsidy. That family might only pay $615 a month with their subsidy this year. The actual average premiums only increased by $13 in Miami for a family of four, according to the analysis. Premiums and subsidies vary widely by factors including age, income, gender and zip code. That same family of four living in Escambia County can expect much sharper increases, where average premiums increased by roughly $150 this year. A family that received a roughly $500 subsidy each year paid $384 out-of-pocket a month last year, but may pay $532 a month this year. Insurance companies raise price on health plans

Domestic airfare continues to outpace inflation, rising 2.7percent compared to the 2.1percent gain in the Consumer Price Index. Airfare has gone up 10.7percent in the past five years after adjusting for inflation according to an Associated Press analysis of data from the Airlines Reporting Corp., which processes ticket transactions for airlines and more than 9,400 travel agencies, including websites such as Expedia and Orbitz. The formula for rising fares seems simple, but it eluded the airlines for years: Match the supply of seats to passenger demand. Airlines have reduced the number of seats while more people want to fly because of the economic recovery. All this leads to higher airfares, says Chuck Thackston, managing director of data and analytics at Airlines Reporting Corp. This trend in airfares is likely to continue for the near future, as the economy continues to grow. These days, fares only capture part of the cost of flying. Many passengers pay extra to check their luggage, typically $50 roundtrip for the first bag and $70 for the second one. But bag fees havent changed much in the past few years. Now, the airlines are increasingly enticing passengers to pay for fast-track security lines, early boarding, additional legroom and other extras that can add from $9 to $299 to the cost of a flight. So, for example, a $300 ticket can balloon to $450 on some airlines if you check two bags and pay $30 for a little more room to stretch your legs. And travelers arent finding much relief after landing. The average nightly price of a hotel room in the U.S. during the first half of this year was $113.80, according travel research company STR. Thats up $4.47, or 4percent, from the same period in 2013. Most people are traveling for work. And when the economy is strong, they do more flying. Data released by the government last week shows that economic growth bounced back after a brutal winter, businesses are creating jobs at a steady pace and consumer spending is on the rise. The Global Business Travel Association predicts that worldwide business travel will grow 6.9percent this year to a record $1.18 trillion. The United States is the business largest travel market, with travelers spending $274 billion last year, a 4.5-percent increase over 2012. Baggage fees and some others were introduced in 2008 to offset losses from rising fuel prices. However, this year airlines are actually paying less for fuel $2.96 a gallon so far, 7.2percent less than last year, when adjusted for inflation. Passengers arent seeing any of those savings. One reason is that airlines no longer need to entice fliers with lower fares. There are simply fewer choices today. A wave of consolidation that started in 2008 has left four U.S. airlines American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines controlling more than 80percent of the domestic air-travel market. Discount airlines such as Allegiant Air and Spirit Airlines have grown at breakneck speed but still carry a tiny fraction of overall passengers. That control of the market has enabled the bigger airlines to charge more for tickets and not worry about being undercut by the competition. In addition, the airlines are taking in about $3.3 billion a year in fees. The result: record profits. In April, May and June, the four largest U.S. airlines earned a combined $2.9 billion. Airlines are earning so much money that they are starting to pay investors dividends something unheard of in an industry that just a decade ago was struggling with a wave of bankruptcies. Airlines for America, the industrys U.S. trade and lobbying group, says passengers should blame the government, not the carriers, for higher fares. Last month, increased fees linked to the Transportation Security Administration took effect. Fliers will now pay a flat fee of $5.60 each way, up from $2.50 each way for nonstop flights and $5 for trips with connections.But taxes and government fees still remain a small portion of what passengers pay. On a $500 roundtrip ticket between New York and Seattle, they make up 12percent of the price.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, AUGUST5, 2014 A11 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,680 1,760 1,840 1,920 2,000 FMAMJJ 1,880 1,940 2,000 S&P 500Close: 1,938.99 Change: 13.84 (0.7%) 10 DAYS 15,000 15,500 16,000 16,500 17,000 17,500 FMAMJJ 16,400 16,780 17,160 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 16,569.28 Change: 75.91 (0.5%) 10 DAYSAdvanced1942 Declined1175 New Highs29 New Lows71 Vol. (in mil.)2,982 Pvs. Volume3,729 1,627 1,993 1686 1006 25 97 NYSE NASD DOW16596.2216447.2016569.28+75.91+0.46%-0.04% DOW Trans.8153.808064.808149.08+28.22+0.35%+10.11% DOW Util.540.78528.89538.66-2.03-0.38%+9.80% NYSE Comp.10780.4510669.4210766.68+74.52+0.70%+3.52% NASDAQ4395.384343.034383.89+31.25+0.72%+4.96% S&P5001942.921921.201938.99+13.84+0.72%+4.90% S&P4001376.521359.481374.95+7.75+0.57%+2.41% Wilshire 500020538.2320302.4520501.20+155.19+0.76%+4.04% Russell 20001125.541108.271124.82+9.96+0.89%-3.34% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Interestrates Stocks stage rally Utilities lag Associated PressNEW YORK The stock market staged a lateday rally Monday, helping push the Dow Jones industrial average higher for the first time in a week. Investors had a couple pieces of positive news to get behind: a decent earnings report from Berkshire Hathaway and the announcement of a rescue package for a struggling Portuguese bank. However, investors remain cautious after last weeks sell-off, which gave the Standard & Poors 500 index its worst five-day period in more than two years. Everyone is doublechecking their own portfolio after what happened last week, said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at BMO Private Bank in Chicago. The Dow rose 75.91points, or 0.5percent, to 16,569.28. Its the first time the blue chip index has posted a gain since July 28. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 13.84 points, or 0.7percent, to 1,938.99 and the Nasdaq composite added 31.25 points, or 0.7percent, to 4,383.89. Berkshire Hathaway, the company run by Warren Buffett, helped give the market an early boost Monday. The Omaha, Nebraskabased company reported late Friday a profit of $6.4billion last quarter, helped by its insurance division Geico, which performed well above Wall Streets expectations. Berkshires investment portfolio was also a big driver of profits. The companys Class B stock rose $3.89, or 3percent, to $129.70, one of the biggest gain in the S&P 500. The news out of Portugal also helped the market. Portugals central bank said late Sunday it would shore up Banco Espirito Santo, one of the countrys biggest financial institutions. Portugals PSI 20 index rose 1percent on the news. Portugals banking woes were one of many catalysts for last weeks market selloff. While Portugals economy is small, strategists say that the eurozones economy is fragile enough that Portugals woes could spread. Europe just exited its latest recession a year ago, while the U.S. emerged from its last recession in 2009. The tensions between Europe and Russia, the eurozones biggest trading partner, over the ongoing conflict in Ukraine only added to the problems facing the continent.

OPINION Page A12TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2014 Re-elect Kenney to county commissionI am writing in support of the re-election of Commissioner John JJ Kenney. As a 12-year resident of Citrus County, I have had the privilege and honor of observing JJ serve our county; first, as our Veterans Service Officer, and most recently, as our county commissioner from District 2. When it comes time to serving the citizens of Citrus County and watching out for their well-being, you will find JJ in the lead. He has done this with dignity, compassion and honor. We all know that Citrus County has experienced what J J has referred to as the perfect storm. First, the great recession caused the drop in property values; secondly, the announcement of the closure of the nuclear plant coupled with Duke disputing their property taxes caused a scenario that no one could have foreseen or predicted. Throughout all of this, JJ was the leader and has been a steady force making the tough but right decisions to keep our county government operating in a manner in which our citizens have come to rely upon and expect. Proof of his leadership abilities lies in the fact that just recently it was announced the county has stabilized its budget, maintained its AA bond rating and rebuilt the countys reserves. I am happy that we have had JJ at the helm during these most difficult times so that he could help in leading to right the ship. I truly believe that with JJs re-election, our best days are ahead of us. Semper fi Marine. Tom Gotterup Crystal River For more than 80 years, reading in print has been as natural for me as breathing. Someone writing about one of my books not e-books described me as a voracious reader. Thats why Ive been skeptical about the growing number of online courses that students are taking and the diverse digital reading they do on their own. How much of this kind of reading and learning, I wonder, gets and stays inside them? Im receiving credible answers from the author of a forthcoming book that should be a must-read for all Americans concerned with having future generations skilled in critical thinking. The book, Words Onscreen: The Fate of Reading in a Digital World (Oxford University Press, to be published next year), is by Naomi S. Baron, a professor of linguistics and executive director of the Center for Teaching, Research and Learning at American University. Fortunately, you can now learn much of the essence of her research from her article in The Chronicle of Higher Education, How E-Reading Threatens Learning in the Humanities (July 14). As the title indicates, the scope of Barons research goes beyond online courses: With the coming of e-readers, tablets and smartphones, reading styles underwent a sea change. In all the intense arguments about educational reform, Ive seen very little about this sea change in reading and how it will affect the depth and range of thinking by future generations of Americans. Baron continues: For the past five years, Ive been examining the pros and cons of reading on-screen versus in print. The bottom line is that while digital devices may be fine for reading what we dont intend to muse over or reread, text that requires whats been called deep-reading is nearly always better done in print ... Digital reading also encourages distraction and invites multitasking. Her survey research included university students here and in Germany and Japan. And among American and Japanese subjects, 92 percent reported it was easiest to concentrate when reading in hard copy (was necessary). (The figure for Germany was 98 percent.) ... Imagine wrestling with Finnegans Wake while simultaneously juggling Facebook and booking a vacation flight. Of course, earlier in her article, Baron questions: Are students even reading Milton or Thucydides or Wittgenstein these days? Or, I would add, how about Dostoevsky, Dickens, Mann and Tolstoy? Among the common responses she got from students regarding what they most liked about reading in print (when they had to take time for it) was: I can write on the pages and remember the material easier, and Its easier to focus. Furthermore, When asked what they liked least about reading on-screen, a number of Japanese students reported that it wasnt real reading, while respondents from all three countries complained that they get distracted or dont absorb as much. And dig this from Naomi Baron: My all-time favorite reply to the question What is the one thing you like least about reading in print? came from an American: It takes me longer because I read more carefully. Isnt careful reading what academe was designed to promote? Barons prime personal focus is the decline in in-depth digital-reading of the humanities, where readings tend to be lengthy, intellectually weighty or both. The challenge of digital reading for the humanities is that screens particularly those on devices with Internet connections undermine our encounters with meaty texts. These devices werent designed for focused concentration, reading slowly, pausing to argue virtually with the author, or rereading. Rather, they are information and communication machines, best used for searching and skimming not scrutinizing. Think about that for a few moments: not scrutinizing. In other words, not examining whats being communicated and not understanding how flimsy digital reading is. Naomi Baron anxiously turns to what must be done if reading is to be real. Teachers and scholars must look beyond todays (fashionable, speedy) careermindedness in talking about challenges to the humanities. And, Id strongly add, talking about challenges to the Constitution and to educating individuals apart from collective standardized tests that negate personal scrutiny. We need, she emphasizes, to think more carefully about students mounting rejection of long-form reading, now intensified by digital technologies that further complicate our struggle to engage students in serious text-based inquiry. As for me, I continue to cherish physical books I can hold that I delight in writing in, arguing with the authors and rereading as I learn more about the subjects elsewhere. I have friends who are proud of their Kindles so full of ebooks. How intimately do they know each of them? From the time I was a kid, certain printed books became part of me. And I still dig daily into newspapers yes, newspapers with a pen, underlining surprises that challenge me and noting the names of the unfamiliar reporters so I can check their believability. I dont dig skimming through life.Nat Hentoff is a nationally renowned authority on the First Amendment and the Bill of Rights.

As a way to provide safe water for drinking, for the past eight years, some residents in the area have been removing arsenic from their water wells using filters provided by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). But these filter systems are expensive, with costs that can range up to several thousand dollars for whole-house systems. Further, the most common system, one called reverse osmosis, wastes a lot of water. While the process is effective in cleaning arsenic out of the water, it takes about five gallons of well water to produce a gallon of treated water. The remaining four gallons go back into the homes septic system. A little more than a year ago, the DEP began a study to determine the best long-term solution for the problem. Earlier this year, the DEP provided the county commission with options. One of the options was to do nothing, but if the state ceased funding well treatment systems, new homes would have to install a water treatment system for about $7,000, with maintenance costs of more than $1,500 annually. The other options were various ways for the county to supply water to homes in the area where high arsenic levels have been found in wells. Commissioners adopted the plan to extend the existing county water line from North Turkey Oak into the affected area and connecting homes to the county water system. This project is expected to begin in about two years. Grant funding for this project would cover about 65 percent of the $2.4 million cost, with the remainder coming from assessments property owners who live in the area supplied by the new water line. This assessment is currently expected to be approximately $1,500 per lot. While this is a significant cost, it is considerably below the cost of installing an arsenic removal system, and even for homes that currently do not have an arsenic problem, having county water is insurance against both the cost of a well failure or of having to install filtration sometime in the future. Having county water is also a bonus for homeowners wanting to sell their property, because it removes uncertainty about water quality on the lot. The commission has adopted a reasonable program that offers a permanent solution to the problem of high arsenic levels in water wells. We encourage residents in the area to take advantage of this opportunity when the water lines are installed and county water is available. THE ISSUE:County commissioners vote to extend county water line to northwest Citrus County.OUR OPINION:A plan for a permanent solution to the problem.

I hope that more and more people start getting these things in the paper or sending in letters and things because theyre taking all the tax money and spending it on people that dont need it.CCHB should not go onThis is in response to the CCHB article for Saturday (July 19). Why should the CCHB be allowed to raise the tax rate at all, much less from 0.25 to 1.25 or higher? Why should the CCHB even exist after the HCA lease? HCA sure doesnt need those people to operate the hospital. Look what led up to this situation in the first place There just seems to be no way to keep the CCHB in check. Why do they need that kind of money to exist? When this lease is finalized, why should there be a CCHB or a foundation board?Biking left off listThis is in reference to the article on July 16 titled Exercise disguised: Find fitness opportunities in everyday activities. I cant believe that you actually listed horseback riding for this county when the majority of people in this county are out there riding their bikes. You do not include bicycling anywhere in that article. You included walking, gardening, horseback riding, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, swimming. Why not bicycling? Bicycling has many things to help improve your health. Its an easy way to exercise. It builds strength and muscle tone, it increases muscle tone, it builds stamina, it improves cardiovascular fitness, it eats up calories, it improves your heart health, it improves your coordination and it reduces stress.

Animal shelter needs vet ASAPOpen letter to the county commissioners regarding the Animal Shelter: There are some serious concerns about the Citrus County Animal Shelter that you may be unaware of. Its been far too long that the shelter is without a full-time vet, and now were told it will be two more weeks before the vet from Canada is available due to previously overlooked paperwork needs. Many volunteers and citizens (including adopters) are troubled by the suffering going on there without adequate vet presence. The temporary fill in vet does not provide enough time for the needs of a packed shelter, full of county animals. This is a county problem and, as you are the elected officials, it needs to be brought to your attention. While waiting for adoptive homes, the animals need vet care they are not receiving. Many animals come in with injuries and special medical needs and are in pain. Recently several have lain on cement floors suffering, with no attention or health assessments for weeks. Until a volunteer takes the cause on personally, and until our nonprofit groups commit to paying for outside veterinary medical treatment, there is no relief for the animal. Many serious health needs are not provided (and not even recognized) due to lack of initial screening of the animals at intake. They are at our mercy. This is cruel in its negligence. Many animals have been adopted and have homes waiting, but for out-of-county adoptions, they have to remain in the shelter for rabies shots or spay/neutering for indefinite amounts of time, until a vet appears. That backs up the spaces that could be freed by adopted pets. In the end that causes more deaths for space for completely good adoptable family pets. It is unrealistic to think that one vet (even full time) can perform all the spays/neuters, do intake health assessments, and provide necessary medical care for so many animals. The vouchers to outside community vets was a big help in the past, but that has been discontinued, anticipating the full-time vet who was hired but not there. Until there is a vet who can perform the necessary surgeries, we need the vouchers back and we need them now. Is it money that is interfering? One would think that the money saved over these months (not having to pay a directors salary) would make some necessary funds available. All of you and our shelter are respected for your Strive for Life efforts to save as many lives as possible at Citrus County Animal Shelter. While we all sit comfortably in our airconditioned homes and offices and while our own pets are enjoying the good life lets take responsibility for the humane treatment of our animals in the county shelter. Its the measure of our civility and humanness.Judy McBriar HomosassaStop inbreeding, over-breedingIn the back of an old Dodge van were rusty metal cages, dirty blankets and a horrendous odor. A large, unkempt woman sat slurping from a frosted cup, holding a sign that read Chihuahuas For Sale. Instead of turning away and racing inside the drugstore to escape Julys unforgiving heat and humidity, I looked inside the oven-hot vehicle and felt my stomach lurch. A fawn-colored female puppy especially caught my eye as she stared with huge brown eyes, drowning me in sympathy. I asked to touch her and she was thrust into my arms with a price tag and the story she was a teacup, almost full-grown. The puppy was damp and smelled of urine. As I felt her tiny ribcage, I wondered how anyone could starve an innocent animal to keep it underweight in hopes to draw more money. Its unfortunately common practice, but improper nourishment can mean a disastrous future for a puppy. I didnt need and wasnt shopping for another abused animal, but my heart led my head and I paid the price. Wrapped in a lightweight baby blanket, I placed the weak, 7-month-old puppy on the front seat and turned the A/C on to cool her down. She lapped a thimble full of water and put her sad face inside the blanket as if to hide in shame, and peered out at me, quizzically. She didnt move a muscle or make a sound on the way home and never took her eyes off me until she met her new family. Over-breeding, inbreeding, lack of veterinary care, and months of starvation likely caused the medical problems my Felicia suffers today. She is a welladjusted, spayed and loveable adult and I hope she has forgotten what I will forever remember about her horrible beginning. At 6 pounds, she shows-off, gives gentle kisses whenever she can successfully push her way against my face, and takes meds without a fuss, necessary the rest of her life. No longer the bony little dog, Felicia might have died and been tossed into a Dumpster had I not happened along. There are so many who will never know a human who cares and it is up to the humans to stop the sufferings of the innocent. We must stop the constant breeding, the overpopulation of unwanted pets, the ongoing animal cruelty. It isnt a right; its a shame.

Flooded Associated PressA fire hydrant is partially buried Sunday in Forest Falls, Calif. Homes damaged in Calif. stormMOUNT BALDY, Calif. Crews cleared roads in an area where some 2,500 people had been stranded after thunderstorms caused mountain mudslides in Southern California, while authorities estimated that between six and eight homes were badly damaged and uninhabitable. Traffic resumed on some San Bernardino County roads that had been blocked by several feet of mud, rocks and debris near the rural communities of Oak Glen and Forest Falls. Up to eight homes near Forest Falls were likely lost and several others sustained minor damage from mud and water, Fire Capt. Jeff Britton said. All residents in the two towns were accounted for and no injuries were reported, officials said.Judge: Ala. law unconstitutionalBIRMINGHAM, Ala. An Alabama law restricting doctors at abortion clinics is unconstitutional because it would unduly hamper womens ability to obtain the medical procedure, a federal judge ruled Monday. U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson, in a 172-page opinion and an accompanying order, said state lawmakers exceeded their authority when they passed a law last year requiring doctors at abortion clinics to have hospital admitting privileges. The decision came days after a federal appeals court blocked a similar law in Mississippi.Grand Canyon looks into videoFLAGSTAFF, Ariz. Authorities are looking into a viral Internet video that shows a man kicking a squirrel off what appears to be the edge of the Grand Canyon. Park spokeswoman Kirby-Lynn Shedlowski said Monday that chances of finding the man are slim. She couldnt say whether the video was a hoax. But she said geographical features in it match part of the Grand Canyon. She said authorities have reached out to YouTube seeking more information. A message sent Monday to the person who uploaded the video wasnt immediately returned. The video shows a shirtless man wearing a cowboy hat leaving a trail of food, putting on one of his shoes and then kicking the squirrel into the air. Park officials discourage visitors from feeding squirrels or other wildlife. If found, the man could face a charge that falls into a category of disturbing or harassing wildlife a federal petty offense that carries a maximum six months in jail and/or a $5,000 fine. Wright said rangers likely would not pursue animal cruelty under a state statute because that would require them to retrieve the squirrel and prove that it was injured or had died.

Fighters with the Islamic State group launched a three-pronged attack over the weekend in a drive to capture Haditha Dam, in western Iraq, a complex with six power generators located alongside Iraqs second-largest reservoir. At the same time, they are fighting to capture Iraqs largest dam, Mosul Dam, in the north of the country. Seizing the dams and the large reservoirs they hold would give the militants control over water and electricity that they could use to help build support in the territory they now rule by providing the scarce resources to residents. Or they could sell the resources as a lucrative source of revenue. They could also use the dams as a weapon of war by flooding terrain downstream to slow Iraqs military or disrupt life. Turkish women file lawsuit ANKARA, Turkey Womens rights activists and female legislators have filed a legal complaint against Turkeys deputy prime minister who said last week that women should not laugh aloud in public. Legislator Aylin Nazliaka said the women filed the complaint with court officials in Istanbul on Monday, accusing Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc of violating charters on gender discrimination and allowing women to become targets of possible violence if they laugh in public. Few expect the complaint to lead to legal action against the politician, but Nazliaka said women are sending Arinc a message that his discriminatory statements are not acceptable. Arinc said not laughing out loud in public is among the requirements of being an honorable woman. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressJEFFERSON CITY, Mo. For nearly a century, Missouri has taxed drivers to pay for its roads. Thats always provided enough until now. Today, voters will decide on a historic change that would tax virtually everything they buy in order to yield more money for roads and bridges. With Congress stymied over long-term highway funding, many states are taking it upon themselves to tackle the politically uncomfortable task of raising revenue for their aging transportation systems. In the past year and a half, onefourth of the states have hiked taxes, fees or fines, and at least a dozen others are studying options, according to an Associated Press review. The push comes as the traditional revenue sources federal and state fuel taxes have deteriorated because of more fuel-efficient vehicles, more people driving less, and stagnant tax rates. Support for the hikes has come from Democrats and Republicans alike, even in tax-averse states such as Missouri, where the Legislature has been cutting income taxes. Tax increases are very, very hard to pass, said Missouri Sen. Mike Kehoe, a Republican who supports the measure on Tuesdays ballot for a three-quarters cent sales tax increase. But I think that people do look at infrastructure differently ... as an investment. Congress agreed Thursday to a 10-month funding patch for the federal Highway Trust Fund, which was running out of money to cover all of its commitments to the states. But a long-term plan remains unresolved, and the stalemate already has caused delays for some projects such as highway improvements in Tennessee and bridge replacements in Arkansas. Federal money accounts for more than a quarter of states total spending on highways and transit infrastructure, according to the Pew Charitable Trusts. I just dont think we can count on any more federal dollars coming in than what were currently getting, and we should assume that money is going to drop, said Rep. Dave Hinson, a Republican who sponsored Missouris proposed transportation sales tax. States are already facing shortfalls in their own transportation revenue. The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates that governments would need to spend as much as 50 percent more to pay for all of the work needed on roads, bridges and mass transit. Groups: US scheme hurt aid work Associated PressWASHINGTON A U.S. program in Cuba that secretly used an HIVprevention workshop for political activism was assailed Monday by international public health officials and members of Congress who declared that such clandestine efforts put health programs at risk around the world. Beginning in late 2009, the U.S. Agency for International Development deployed nearly a dozen young people from Latin America to Cuba to recruit political activists, an Associated Press investigation found. The operation put the foreigners in danger not long after a U.S. contractor was hauled away to a Cuban jail. Sen. Patrick Leahy, DVt., said Monday it would be worse than irresponsible if USAID concocted an HIV-prevention workshop to promote a political agenda. And InterAction, an alliance of global nongovernmental aid groups, said, The use of an HIV workshop for intelligence purposes is unacceptable. The U.S. government should never sacrifice delivering basic health services or civic programs to advance an intelligence goal. The Obama administration defended its use of the HIV-prevention workshop for its Cuban democracypromotion efforts but disputed that the project was a front for political purposes. The program enabled support for Cuban civil society, while providing a secondary benefit of addressing the desires Cubans express for information and training about HIV prevention, said State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki. And we do programs, as you know, around the world that promote democracy and promote access to this type of information, she said. Documents and interviews make clear that the program was aimed at recruiting a new generation of activists opposed to Cubas Castro government. It is illegal in Cuba to work with foreign democracybuilding programs. Documents prepared for the USAID-sponsored program called the HIV workshop the perfect excuse to conduct political activity. Leahy, who is chairman of the Senate Appropriations subcommittee that oversees USAID, said in response to the APs findings: It may have been good business for USAIDs contractor, but it tarnishes USAIDs long track record as a leader in global health. US govt had role in Ebola drug Associated PressTwo American aid workers infected with Ebola are getting an experimental drug so novel it has never been tested for safety in humans and was only identified as a potential treatment earlier this year, thanks to a longstanding research program by the U.S. government and the military. The workers, Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly, are improving, although its impossible to know whether the treatment is the reason or they are recovering on their own, as others who have survived Ebola have done. Brantly is being treated at a special isolation unit at Atlantas Emory University Hospital, and Writebol was expected to be flown there Tuesday in the same specially equipped plane that brought Brantly. They were infected while working in Liberia, one of four West African nations dealing with the worlds largest Ebola outbreak. On Monday, the World Health Organization said the death toll had increased from 729 to 887 deaths in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria, and that more than 1,600 people have been infected. In a worrisome development, the Nigerian Health Minister said a doctor who had helped treat Patrick Sawyer, the LiberianAmerican man who died July 25 days after arriving in Nigeria, has been confirmed to have the deadly disease. Tests are pending for three other people who also treated Sawyer and are showing symptoms. There is no vaccine or specific treatment for Ebola, but several are under development. The experimental treatment the U.S. aid workers are getting is called ZMapp and is made by Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc. of San Diego. States take a hike Associated PressVehicles move July 30 along a section of Interstate 70 in Foristell, Mo.

Border patrol agents at Washingtons Dulles Inter national and New Yorks JFK airports in particular have been told to ask travelers about possible exposure to the virus and to be on the lookout for anyone with a fever, headache, achiness, sore throat, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain, rash or red eyes. Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland, which will r eceive several African heads of state, is screening passengers too, while U.S. Secret Service agents in charge of security for the three-day summit have been briefed on what to look for and how to respond, officials said Monday. If a passenger is suspected of carrying the deadly virus they would be quarantined immediately and evaluated by medical personnel, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which provided the additional training to local airports.

Thats how much the three-time Pro Bowl receiver believes in quarterback Josh McCown and some of the other changes the team has made after ranking 30th in scoring and last in passing and total yardage in 2013. Jackson has had two stellar seasons since signing a five-year, $55.55 Million contract in free agency, but says he would gladly sacrifice gaudy statistics for more wins. The Bucs havent made the playoffs since 2007, however Jackson is confident that trend will not continue under new coach Lovie Smith. I start every season the same way. Its got to be about wins. Team first. Every time I come out here, I need to be part of this offense, contribute to this offense, the 10th-year pro said. That just means doing my job. It doesnt mean going out there and catching a certain amount of balls or scoring a certain amount of touchdowns, Jackson added.

Satele was a rookie starter with the Dolphins in 2007, when they went 1-15. He also started every game in 2008, when they were division champions and went 11-5 their most recent winning season. Satele was then traded away, and now hes back after signing as a stopgap solution at the Dolphins troubled center spot. He practiced for the first time Monday. As I stepped on the field I was like, Wow, my rookie year seems like yesterday, said Satele, 29. Its a full circle. Its good to be back. The Dolphins signed Satele on Saturday after their first training camp scrimmage, an indication theyre unhappy with the other candidates to fill in for injured Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey. Shelley Smith, Sam Brenner and Nate Garner took turns with the first team last week. None distinguished himself, and botched snaps were a recurring problem. Satele, an eighth-year veteran, said he cant remember the last time he had a bad snap. Once its your job, youve got to take care of it, he said. Its just a habit now get the ball to the quarterback. Satele has been a starter his entire career, including 24 games the past two seasons for playoff teams in Indianapolis. The native of Hawaii welcomed the chance to return to Miami (No snow, he noted) as Pounceys potential replacement. Coach Joe Philbin made no promises to Satele regarding either the weather or playing time.

Now, Alabama and other aspiring national contenders are trying to begin the climb back in a league that suddenly has a fresh feel. Gone are marquee names like Jadeveon Clowney and Johnny Manziel and Heisman Trophy finalists AJ McCarron and Tre Mason. Presumed top contenders like Alabama, South Carolina, Georgia and LSU are breaking in new quarterbacks. Those factors and the wild, unpredictable 2013 season are giving other teams around the league hope. After all, who could have predicted Missouri and Auburns surprising runs to division titles, Floridas injuryfueled struggles or the SEC West and Iron Bowl being settled on Auburns final-play, 109yard return of a missed field goal? Auburn came back and was competing for a national championship, Florida cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III said. You never know whos going to be the best, and thats why the SEC is the best conference in college football. But the best team belonged to Florida State, which ended the SECs seven-year national title streak with a 34-31 win over Auburn at the Rose Bowl. For all the SECs player turnover, there is stability on the sidelines. The only new coach is Vanderbilts Derek Mason. Still, maybe its the year for Mississippi to break through or Florida to make a dramatic rebound like Auburn did a year ago after an 0-8 SEC season. Or maybe Alabama, with three national titles in five seasons, returns to the top. It certainly wouldnt be a big surprise for Steve Spurrier to lead South Carolina to its first SEC championship. The Gamecocks have posted three straight 11-2 records and are coming off a No. 4 final ranking. Nobody picked Missouri and Auburn to win the divisions last year, Spurrier said. Thats why we play the game. We dont know whos going to win em. Here are 5 things to watch during the upcoming SEC season: CHANGING QBS: Seven of the top eight passers from last season are gone, including Texas A&Ms Manziel, Alabamas McCarron and Georgias Aaron Murray. Only six teams have returning starters and one of those, Tennessee, carried over the competition into preseason camp. Freshmen are in the mix at Texas A&M, Kentucky and LSU, and Florida State transfer Jacob Coker is the odds-on favorite to win the Crimson Tides starting job. Plus, Auburn will start Jeremy Johnson in the opener against Arkansas after Nick Marshalls offseason citation for marijuana possession.

Associated PressNEW YORK Brandon McCarthy won his fourth start in a row with a gritty effort, and the New York Yankees took the first of three straight matchups against Detroits Cy Young Award winners, beating Max Scherzer and the Tigers 2-1 Monday night. Brian McCann hit an RBI single and Jacoby Ellsbury had a sacrifice fly in the third, an inning in which the Tigers saved several runs with fine fielding. McCarthy (4-0) allowed five hits and an unearned run in 5 2/3 innings. The Yankees have won each of his five starts since being acquired from Arizona. He threw a season-high 116 pitches and struck out eight, including all three in the second when Victor Martinez led off with a double and Detroit loaded the bases. David Robertson was perfect in the ninth for his 30th save. Scherzer (13-4) gave up nine hits over seven innings in losing for the first time since June 17, a span of eight starts. The reigning AL Cy Young winner yielded two runs in the third, but it couldve been much worse. With the bases loaded, Ellsbury sent a deep drive to center field. Ezequiel Carrera, promoted from Triple-A last week after Austin Jackson was traded in the deadline deal that sent David Price to Detroit, made a long run before diving back toward the wall. Fully extended, Carrera made the catch and slid on his stomach onto the warning track. Carrera was making his first start in center field for Detroit. Ian Kinsler made two nice plays at second base in the third and had an RBI single in the fifth after Eugenio Suarez reached on third baseman Martin Prados throwing error.

This Date In BaseballAug. 5 1921 Pittsburgh radio station KDKA and announcer Harold Arlin provided listeners with the first broadcast of a major league game. The Pirates beat the Philadelphia Phillies 8-5. 1932 Detroits Tommy Bridges lost his bid for a perfect game on a bloop single by the 27th Washington batter, pinch-hitter Dave Harris. The Tigers beat the Senators 13-0. 1940 John Whitehead of the St. Louis Browns pitched a rain-shortened, six-inning nohitter for a 4-0 victory over the Detroit Tigers in the second game of a doubleheader. 1969 Pittsburghs Willie Stargell became the only player to hit a ball out of Dodger Stadium. Stargells shot off of Los Angeles Alan Foster cleared the right-field pavilion and landed 506 feet from home plate. Stargell hit the rightfield pavilion roof on May 8, 1973, off Andy Messersmith. 1973 Phil Niekro of the Atlanta Braves pitched a 9-0 no-hitter against the San Diego Padres. 1984 Cliff Johnson of the Blue Jays hit his 19th career pinch homer to set a major league record as Toronto beat the Orioles 4-3 at Memorial Stadium. 1999 Mark McGwire became the 16th member of the 500-home run club, hitting two homers Nos. 500 and 501 in the St. Louis Cardinals loss to San Diego. McGwire reached the 500-homer mark in the fewest at-bats doing it in his 5,487th at-bat. Babe Ruth held the previous mark, having done it in 5,801 at-bats. 2001 The Cleveland Indians tied a major league record and became the first team in 76 years to overcome a 12-run deficit to win, defeating the Seattle Mariners 15-14 in 11 innings. Jolbert Cabreras broken-bat, one-out single in the 11th, the 40th hit of the game, scored Kenny Lofton from second with the winning run to end the 4-hour, 11-minute game. The Indians, who fell behind 12-0 after three innings, trailed 14-2 when they batted in the seventh. 2005 Albert Pujols became the first player in major league history to hit 30 home runs in each of his first five seasons, helping the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Atlanta Braves 11-3. Pujols hit a two-run shot in the first for his 190th homer since breaking in with the Cardinals in 2001. 2006 Trevor Hoffman set a major league record with his 11th 30-save season and the San Diego Padres defeated the Washington Nationals 6-3. 2007 Tom Glavine earned his 300th victory in an 8-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs. The 41-year-old left-hander became the 23rd pitcher with 300 victories and only the fifth lefty to win 300. 2011 Colorado pitcher Juan Nicasio as struck in the second inning by a ball off the bat of Washingtons Ian Desmond. The ball slammed into the right side of Nicasios head and caromed away, rolling over the first-base line.

Ryan Brauns 65-game suspension last month and previous punishments bring to 18 the total number of players disciplined for their relationship to Biogenesis of America, a closed anti-aging clinic in Florida accused of distributing banned performing-enhancing drugs.

He followed up with a career-high 78 receptions for 1,224 yards and seven TDs a year ago, when Tampa Bay began the season with eight consecutive losses and finished 4-12. When Smith replaced former coach Greg Schiano in January one of his first orders of business was hiring Jack Tedford as his offensive coordinator. The former Cal coach installed an up tempo style of offense that Jackson says will provide plenty opportunities for him, running back Doug Martin and others to contribute. Im excited. ... Training camp is obviously a time for us to clean up, sharpen everything weve worked on this offseason, said Jackson, who spent the first seven years of his career with the San Diego Chargers. Now its time to really crank it up, start defining different positions, getting guys in locations where we have (matchup) advantages and getting in a good rhythm, he added. Im excited where were at right now. I think were ahead of the curve for being a new offense with a lot of new guys together. Besides signing McCown, a career backup coming off his best year, the Bucs used their entire draft on offensive reinforcements, beginning with the top three picks receiver Mike Evans, tight end Austin SeferianJenkins and running back Charles Sims. McCown threw for 13 TDs and just one interception while filling in for an injured Jay Cutler in Chicago last year. Josh is a big, strong physical guy. He can make every throw, said Jackson, whose big contract was done in all fives in honor of former Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman. Freeman lost Tampa Bays starting job and subsequently was released early last year. Jacksons production didnt suffer much with Mike Glennon running the offense the final 13 games, and it hasnt taken the fivetime 1,000-yard receiver long to build a nice rapport with McCown. I think a lot of it just has to do with his savviness on the field. Hes a very smart guy. He understands space and location and separation on routes and the way the dimensions of a defense work, Jackson said. We spend a lot of time off the field away from this facility, going to high schools and just spending time talking through some things, running some basic routes and getting a feel for each other, he added. I think that relationship is only going to continue to grow. BUCSContinued from Page B1 I told him hes competing for a job just like the other 14 offensive linemen, Philbin said. While Satele lined up with the first team some on Monday, Pouncey worked on the side Monday and looked good high-stepping during one rehabilitation drill. But Pounceys expected to miss at least a couple of games and perhaps more while he recovers from hip surgery in June. Ive got a good opportunity to start a couple of games here before big boy Mike comes back, Satele said. The offense continued to sputter in practice, as it has done for much of camp. There were three false-start penalties by the first team, and Ryan Tannehill threw two interceptions returned for touchdowns. At least there were no fumbled snaps. Satele said his head was spinning Sunday as he tried to learn the offense, but he predicted hell be ready for Fridays exhibition opener at Atlanta. Its not my first rodeo, Satele said. Today wasnt as good as I wanted it to be, but tomorrow will be better, and Wednesday will be better. Sateles old enough that he refers to the 26-year-old Tannehill as Kid. The only players who were with the Dolphins during Sateles last goround with Miami are Garner, defensive tackle Randy Starks, long snapper John Denney and punter Brandon Fields. So what does Satele remember about his rookie season with the worst team in Dolphins history? It was all a blur, Satele said with a chuckle. I dont want to remember that. DOLPHINSContinued from Page B1 Associated PressNEW YORK David Stern remembers the days when an NBA staff that numbered about two dozen was just trying to keep some teams in existence long enough to get them on national TV. Now the former commissioner looks at a league whose 1980 championship series was not broadcast live but now has games televised around the world, whose players average more than $5 million a year in salary as the highest-paid team athletes in sports, and sometimes cant believe he and his colleagues pulled it off. You cant even do justice to everything that everybody has done, Stern said in a phone interview. All you can do is focus on small chunks of it, but its great fun to contemplate how the NBA family has pulled together to be at a place where our players are now at the top of the celebrity period. Pretty, pretty amazing and great. It helped to have marketable stars like Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan. But now comes an honor for the person most responsible for it. Stern will be enshrined Friday in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, part of a 2014 class that includes former players Alonzo Mourning and Mitch Richmond, along with NCAA championship-winning coaches Nolan Richardson and Gary Williams. Stern ended his run as commissioner after exactly 30 years on Feb. 1 he wont say retired, because hes still working and once thought he would wait five years for induction, same as players. Officials from the NBA and Hall of Fame persuaded him otherwise, and nobody is arguing that he belongs immediately. It would be hard to overstate the impact I think David has had on the game of basketball. Admitting that Im prejudiced toward basketball, David Stern could go down in our era as the greatest commissioner of all-time in all sports, said former NBA coach and ESPN analyst P.J. Carlesimo. For Stern, it will be the first official basketball function hes attended since leaving the commissioners office in the hands of Adam Silver. Hes remained busy advising some communications companies and technology startups, giving speeches and traveling on behalf of the league, and is anxious to catch up with the growing list of supporters he has learned will be in Springfield, Massachusetts. Its very nice and very enjoyable, Stern said, and the Hall of Fame is always a kind of reunion in any event. And so this will be just one more, which is great. Inducted in the contributor category, Stern is mostly being recognized for his accomplishments as commissioner. But things like free agency and the merger with the ABA came much earlier, when he was working with the league as a lawyer, before he joined the NBA as its general counsel in 1978. Some of those advances are the ones that occasionally come to mind when hes talking with old co-workers. It was a great run, he said. We had a lot of fun together and the success was as a result of the efforts of an extraordinary number of people. Stern talks often with Silver and is impressed with the way his successor has handled a number of challenges in his first six months, most notably the Donald Sterling controversy. Yet it would be hard for Silver or anyone else to ever match the career of Stern, who oversaw the addition of seven teams, the creation of the WNBA and NBA Development League, and the growth of revenues to about $5 billion annually. You just look at where the game is today, and his fingerprints are all over that. My dad tells me stories all the time of how the league used to be it was great but nothing compared to what it is now, said Golden State AllStar Stephen Curry, whose father, Dell, started his 16-year career in 1986. When it comes to how much presence we have across the globe, playing conditions, how the league has expanded, hes had every part in leading the charge. Stern calls his induction a group award, citing the efforts of owners, players, referees and league employees, and jokes that I havent bought the napkin yet on which he would write his acceptance speech. But the honor is Sterns, and hes excited to accept it. To me, its a very important award, a recognition by your peers in a sport where you spent your adult life working, he said, adding its at the top of the chart in terms of the way it makes you feel and the recognition of it. David Stern set to enter basketballs Hall of Fame David Stern Associated PressBEREA, Ohio Josh Gordon got back on the field before the NFL stopped him. Gordon returned to training camp and practiced Monday as his appeal hearing with the NFL took place for a second day in New York. The Pro Bowl wide receiver ended his workout earlier than his teammates so he could participate in the hearing via teleconference with his legal team, which fought his potential one-year suspension for violating the leagues substance-abuse policy. Gordons hearing carried into Monday after the sides met for nearly 10 hours on Friday in Manhattan. Gordons lawyer, Maurice Suh, contends that the 23year-old, who has a history of drug issues, tested positive for marijuana because of secondhand smoke. The hearing wrapped up shortly before 3 p.m. League spokesman Greg Aiello said he did not expect an immediate resolution and did not know when there will be a ruling on Gordons case. Until hes told otherwise, Gordon intends to keep practicing. He missed two workouts last week as well as Saturdays scrimmage in Akron, where Clevelands offense struggled without him. For now, hes free to play and the Browns are hoping that continues. Its always special to have Josh out there, cornerback Joe Haden said. When Josh is out there, its like LeBron came back. Hes a big, big part of our offense and a really, really special player. Gordons situation has hung over the Browns for months, but there at least seems to be an ending in sight. Because hes in Stage three of the leagues substance program, Gordon could receive a one-year suspension and would then have to apply for reinstatement with Commissioner Roger Goodell. Theres a chance Gordon could get a reduced suspension, and he could be helped by the recent public outcry over the leagues handling of the case involving Baltimore running back Ray Rice, who was given a two-game suspension for domestic violence. When he was in Canton last week for Pro Football Hall of Fame festivities, Goodell said he was not currently involved in Gordons case. At some point in time, I may have an opportunity to be involved, Goodell said. When I am, I look forward to meeting with him. The Browns are eager for a final answer regarding their top playmaker. Gordon emerged as one of the leagues biggest game-breaking threats last season. Despite being suspended two games and playing with three quarterbacks, Gordon still led the league with 1,646 yards receiving. He scored nine touchdowns and became the only player in league history to record consecutive 200-yard games. Hes a playmaker, a difference maker and the Browns are hoping to have No. 12 at their disposal for as long as possible. Browns wide receiver Nate Burleson said football is providing Gordon with a needed outlet during a difficult time. Gordon needs the Browns as much as they need him. Its kind of a sanctuary for him, Burleson said. He had a smile on his face and he cracked some jokes. I just like seeing him on the field. There are certain guys that the league needs to have on the field and hes one of them. Hes one of the more premiere talents in the NFL, so I hope that hes in a Browns jersey this year. Cornerback Joe Haden, who is close with Gordon, said his younger teammate has been trying to stay upbeat. Hes doing the best he can, Haden said. Hes staying positive. At the same time, he has the support of us, his teammates. Were like his family, so anything he needs he knows weve got him. Hes just trying to keep it as positive as he can.

B4TUESDAY, AUGUST5, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLECOLLEGEFOOTBALL California and Oakland Raiders head coach Lane Kiffin to run an offense thats loaded at running back and wide receiver. Georgia lured Jeremy Pruitt away from national champion Florida State to improve a defense that was middle of the pack. The Bulldogs also have replaced the other three defensive assistants. FLORIDAS HOPES: Coach Will Muschamp acknowledged at SEC media days that there will be a lot of chatter about hot seat business after Floridas first losing season since 1979. Chances are there wont be a repeat of the injury-plagued 2013 season, though. And quarterback Jeff Driskel returns from a broken leg with a new offensive coordinator in Kurt Roper, who came over from Duke. The Gators could be the SECs most likely candidate for a big turnaround a la Auburn. FRESH FACES: All those early departures for the NFL gives more freshmen shots at making early impacts. LSU tailback Leonard Fournette was the nations consensus top prospect, and figures to carve a significant role in the backfield. Top quarterback prospect Kyle Allen could claim Texas A&Ms starting job. At Alabama, Cam Robinson is the frontrunner to start at left tackle and Tony Brown is competing for one of the cornerback spots. EARLY SHOWDOWNS: Opening week could give a pretty fair idea of where teams stand. Texas A&M and South Carolina get the SEC season started on Aug. 28 in what gives the SEC Network a splashy debut. Theyve never played each other before. Alabama opens against West Virginia two days later, when Georgia also faces Clemson, LSU plays Wisconsin and Mississippi goes against Boise State. Predicted order of finish: EAST 1. South Carolina; 2. Georgia; 3. Florida; 4. Missouri; 5. Tennessee; 6. Vanderbilt; 7. Kentucky WEST 1. Alabama; 2. Auburn; 3. LSU; 4. Mississippi; 5. Mississippi State; 6. Texas A&M; 7. Arkansas Title game winner: Alabama SECContinued from Page B1 Pac-12 is packed with QB talent, title contenders Associated PressLOS ANGELES Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota is honored to be considered a strong candidate for the Heisman Trophy, and he would love to lead the Ducks to a national championship this fall. As a Pac-12 quarterback, Mariota realizes his immediate goals must be a bit smaller. Were just trying to win the North first, Mariota said, referring to the Ducks division in the powerful conference. Indeed, the Pac-12 is packed yet again with elite quarterback talent, up-and-coming coaches and inventive offensive schemes. The West Coasts power conference was ranked as the nations best top-to-bottom league last year, and its even more stacked this fall. The Pac-12 is better than its ever been, Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez said. And its not going backwards. Its forcing all of us to keep making sure that were pressing the envelope to keep our program up. Whether its perennial power Oregon, two-time champion Stanford, up-and-coming power UCLA or a surprising contender, the Pac-12 is primed to crown a powerful champion. Mariota and UCLAs Brett Hundley lead a group of returning veteran quarterbacks that might be the most impressive in this conferences stellar history at the position. The Pac-12 might even have a chance to break the Souths grip on the national title in the new playoff system, but thats all a postscript to whats certain to be a compelling run to the league title game at Levis Stadium in December. Here are 10 things to watch while the Pac-12 prepares for another season: QB CENTRAL: The Pac-12 has a whopping 10 returning quarterbacks, and at least seven are among the nations best at the position, all short-listed for awards and targeted for NFL shots: Washington States Connor Halliday, Stanfords Kevin Hogan, Arizona States Taylor Kelly, USCs Cody Kessler and Oregon States Sean Mannion along with Hundley and Mariota, who both delayed their NFL dreams to lead their schools pursuit of a national title. BRUISING BRUINS: During coach Jim Moras first two seasons, UCLA seized Los Angeles supremacy from USC. While the Trojans rebuild, the Bruins are loaded for a run at the league title as the Pac-12 Souths preseason favorites. Hundleys steady veteran leadership is the biggest reason, but Mora has a wealth of young talent led by Myles Jack, who starred as a linebacker and a tailback as a freshman. PETERSEN ARRIVES: When Steve Sarkisian returned home to Southern California, Washington pried coach Chris Petersen out of his comfortable job at powerhouse Boise State. The Huskies are eager to see whether Petersens system will succeed at the sports highest level. DUCK SPOTLIGHT: After nearly three decades in Eugene, Don Pellum has the unenviable task of succeeding retired Nick Aliotti as Oregons defensive coordinator. The Ducks former linebackers coach isnt overhauling Aliottis schemes, but his biggest task might be slowing down Stanford after two straight losses to the powerful Cardinal. LEACHS BREAKTHROUGH?: In the past year, Mike Leach co-authored a book on Apache leader Geronimo, caught a 350-pound sturgeon in the Snake River and got Washington State into its first bowl game in a decade. The veteran coach is showing progress in Pullman, but he knows the next step is tougher as the Cougars attempt to join the Pac-12s elite. STALWART STANFORD: Coach David Shaw isnt insulted by the preseason projections showing his Cardinal behind Oregon in the Pac-12 North race. After four straight BCS bowl games and two straight league titles, Shaw is confident Stanfords system will produce another power particularly with Hogan back for another year behind center. BIG GAMES: A few dates for the calendar: USC visits Stanford on Sept. 6; Oregon travels to UCLA on Oct. 11; Utah faces Oregon State on Oct. 16 in a rematch of their 2013 thriller; Stanford visits Oregon on Nov. 1; and Stanford plays at UCLA on Nov. 28, one day before USC hosts Notre Dame in a huge Thanksgiving weekend in Los Angeles. LEVIS FIT: The Pac-12 will play its title game at the San Francisco 49ers new stadium after holding it on the higherseeded teams campus in previous years. Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott calls it a move for the fans, even if last-minute travel to the Bay Area doesnt sound terribly fan-friendly. NETWORK WOES: The Pac-12 Networks are in their third year, and they still dont have a distribution deal with DirecTV, Verizon FiOS, Charter Communications or Cablevision, leaving millions of fans unable to watch every game. Scott again preaches patience, claiming the network is steadily moving toward success. COMEBACK KIDS: California and Colorado finished at the bottom of their respective divisions last season, and theyre picked to finish last again in the preseason media poll. The two former powerhouses still have a reserve of optimism heading into the second seasons for coaches Sonny Dykes and Mike MacIntyre, but its tough to rebuild quickly in the Pac-12. Predicted order of finish: NORTH 1. Oregon; 2. Stanford; 3. Washington; 4. Oregon State; 5. Washington State; 6. California SOUTH 1. UCLA; 2. USC; 3. Arizona State; 4. Arizona; 5. Utah; 6. Colorado Title game winner: Oregon Associated PressArizona head coach Rich Rodriguez takes questions at the 2014 Pac-12 NCAA college football media days in Los Angeles on July 23. Rodriguez is among many football minds who believe the Pac-12 has never been better. The West Coast's top conference is stacked with elite quarterbacks and top-level coaching talent yet again this fall, and it might even be primed to crown a powerful champion with a chance to break the South's grip on the national title in the playoff. Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said he read books written by former NBA coach Phil Jackson in an attempt to discover the secrets of winning multiple championships. Jackson led teams to three consecutive titles on three separate occasions. Fisher is just focused on capturing backto-back championships. The fifth-year coach routinely lists Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird as inspirations, but also mentioned Miami Heat president Pat Riley, former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Chuck Noll and former Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson on Monday. The key to all of them was how they related and got the message over to their players to make sure that they stayed hungry, Fisher said. One of the keys to all those things was that it was serious, it was work, but at the end of the day they still enjoyed playing the game. We can get so caught up in not trying to lose instead of winning and playing good football. ... What I dont want us to do is create a culture where were worried about losing. Florida State, the defending BCS champions, held its first preseason practice Monday afternoon. The Seminoles ended a string of seven consecutive titles won by Southeastern Conference teams with a perfect 14-0 record. While the Seminoles have some offseason issues Heisman trophy winning quarterback Jameis Winston was cited for shoplifting and receiver Jesus Wilson is suspended indefinitely for the theft of a motor scooter they have enough talent to make another run. The Seminoles return 15 players who started in the championship game. Winston served a three-game suspension during baseball season and Fisher spoke with Wilson on Monday to discuss his status. Wilson continues to practice with the team after he pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors stemming from the theft last week. Fisher had no timetable for his return. Wilson was originally charged with a felony. Fisher has refused to refer to his team as the defending champions a habit he began immediately after winning the title in January. He wants the focus on the future and what it will take to reach the top again. Fisher, however, has constantly looked back to previous two-loss and four-loss seasons. Once youre up on that podium, do you really want to walk off? Fisher said. How important is it to stay on that podium? We talk about that. Well throw those flashes up there to remind them of, youre either going to walk off that podium or youre going to stay on that podium. The Seminoles first practice was well attended as each freshman signee was academically eligible and there were few injuries. Defensive tackle Nile Lawrence-Stample was limited with a shoulder injury and linebacker Ukeme Eligwe remains out with a foot injury. Running back Karlos Williams said there is a different kind of hunger after putting a championship ring on their fingers. We want to be the first ones (to win the college football playoffs), Williams said. A brand new pair of (Jordans) come out, you want to be the first person to get a brand new pair. We want to be the first one to get that trophy. We were the first team to win the BCS and the last team to win the BCS. We want to be the first team to win the college football trophy. Senior receiver Rashad Greene, who could break three major school receiving records this season, said the team has the confidence of knowing how to win a title, but has be humble enough to go through the process again. We just cant get complacent, safety Tyler Hunter said. I think we have a bigger edge now, just knowing that teams are going to come at us even harder being No. 1. The team returned to a new locker room that was part of a $4.25 million facility upgrade, new student apartments, a redesigned logo plastered all around the facilities and new national championship paraphernalia all around the athletic buildings. The team also sported new practice jerseys designed as a replica to the new game day versions. Who doesnt love brand new stuff? Williams asked. I remember my freshman year, Terrell Buckley said that to us, you look good, you feel good, you play good. ... Were going to play good.

MEGANCARELLA CorrespondentChances are well live longer than our ancestors did, thanks to advances in medicine and other factors. But whats the best way to enjoy good quality in that longer life? Preventive medicine is a big part of the answer. Maintaining or improving your health helps keep the quality of life high. Focusing on regular preventive care, such as routine checkups and screenings, can help you avoid serious health problems or catch those problems when they are more easily managed. The goal of preventive care and the annual checkup is to maximize the patients well-being and minimize suffering, said Margie Leturno. A certified family nurse practitioner, Leturno is director of the Transitional Care Center at Citrus Memorial Health System. Transitional care helps keep patients healthy after discharge from the hospital by providing follow-up medical care to patients who do not have access to a primary care physician. Research supports the value of preventive care, said Leturno. Preventive measures are based on helping us be healthier humans. The recommended tests and screenings are targeted at specific populations based on research. Preventive care includes visiting a health care provider on an annual basis, even if you are healthy, said Leturno. The purpose of these visits is to: Screen for diseases such as high blood pressure or diabetes Look for future disease risks, such as high cholesterol and obesity Discuss alcohol use and safe drinking and tips on how to quit smoking Encourage a healthy lifestyle, such as healthy eating and exercise Update vaccinations Equally as important, regular checkups help you to maintain a relationship with your doctor so he or she knows you and you feel comfortable asking questions. Another part of preventive health is learning to recognize changes in your body that may not be normal. Despite insurance coverage for annual checkups and most screenings, many adults dont visit a health care provider on a regular basis. Leturno sees patients at the Transitional Care Center who, until their hospitalization, hadnt seen a physician in more than 25 years. There are many reasons for this lack of care. Sometimes its generational or gender based women are more apt to go to the doctor regularly, for example, she said. But theres a cultural gap, too, families that were taught you only use it when you need it. They are the hardest to drag into office unless they think its necessary. We try to educate patients about the value of prevention and early detection of disease, but some people have a hard time seeing it, Leturno said. They say things like youve got to die of something. I tell them that sometimes youre not lucky enough to die quickly smoking, for example, can lead to lung, throat or mouth cancer or emphysema. These can be lingering, painful diseases that are very preventable. Leturno sees a change in attitude about regular preventive care, however, especially among younger generations. People ages 55 to 75 arent as concerned about health as they should be and thats generally when the disease shows up, she said. Younger people seem more in touch with their health. In the same way that they are more conscious of the environment, they also are more conscious of their health. America is amazing in that we are so regimented with newborn, infant and child care, she said. Our pediatricians and school systems enforce immunizations and regular physicals. For the first 18 years, we get great preventive care. Women tend to keep it up until around age 40. Men tend to fall off the radar when it comes to preventive care. We need to continue the care our parents started for us, Leturno said. An annual visit to a health care provider doesnt always include a blood draw or other tests. Its important to go to the doctor and not have the invasive tests. Going for regular physicals and keeping in touch with your primary care provider may limit and decrease your exposure for the future pokes and prods.

Q:I have been a denture wearer for more than 30 years. I am having a lot of trouble with my lower denture staying in place. I have been to my dentist and had only minor success. I went to someone else and was told I needed mini implants. I have had friends tell me not to mess with the mini implants and go right for the real implants. I am so confused. I love your article and wondered if you could help me make my mind up. Thanks so much.A:This is a good question. It is actually on a subject I hear about regularly in my office. As always, I will give you my thought on this. The first thing I would do in this situation is make sure that there was nothing that can be done to make your existing dentures work better for you. At the same time, I would be evaluating to see if any changes in a new set might make a difference. Depending on your goals, this approach might work. What I have found is that most people who have worn dentures as long as you have are usually happy with some minor improvements to their existing dentures. They usually want to avoid the surgery of implant placement, whether it is for mini implants or conventional ones. There are many cases when a reline, along with some adjustments, is just what is needed. If this is not the case with you, implants can be the answer. I personally prefer conventional implants placed by a surgeon and not a general dentist. I believe you get the best of both worlds when a surgeon does what he or she does best and a general dentist does the same. Conventional implants allow for multiple attachment apparatuses and have more flexibility for procedures down the road. They tend to be more costly; however, I feel it is well worth the investment over ones lifespan. Please know that this is my personal opinion and that you will get different answers from any dentist you ask. In summary, if you are sure that nothing can be done with your existing dentures or with a new set, you have no choice but to learn more about the implant route. Discuss the pros and cons of both the mini implants, as well as conventional ones with your dentist. If he or she does not do either of these procedures, make sure you go to someone qualified to educate you. Once you have all the data you need to make a decision, I am confident you will make the right choice for yourself. Please know that what may be right for one patient is not necessarily right for another. I wish you well with this.Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa.

Special to the ChronicleNature Coast EMS develops and provides specialized training programs that reach beyond Citrus County. As a small not-for-profit organization, Nature Coast EMS provides huge impacts across the nation in specialized field training programs for medical personnel. Following one of Citrus Countys most significant boating accidents in the summer of 2011, Ron Bray, paramedic lead instructor with Nature Coast EMS, began to examine how Citrus County responders in general deal with a situation of such magnitude in and around the water. His research led him to determine there was no real pattern or scope of understanding to follow when an event of this nature occurred. Responses to accidents in and around the water were, more often than not, searches by divers for the victims. It was also determined Citrus County Emergency Services were responding to water-related emergencies ill prepared and underequipped for surface water mitigation. Bray developed the Nature Coast EMS Surface Water Rescue Training program and equipment needs assessment and partnered with the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Navy and other state and national agencies. He had the forethought to also include area boat captains from across Citrus County as on-call standby vessels for responders in case a water rescue response was necessary. This program training is for responding personnel to mitigate emergency medical services. They are able to provide a surface water rescue while preventing further injury to the patient and keeping themselves safe at the same time. Currently, 23 percent of all Nature Coast EMS field team members have completed training. Agencies from outside of Citrus County and the state of Florida, have also come to Nature Coast EMS to complete training, including the Dunnellon Police Department, firefighters with Marion County Fire Department and as fire departments from Clearwater, Baltimore and Boston. The New York Port Authority has also been looking to schedule future classes. Now in its third year, The Rescue Swimmer program at Nature Coast EMS has been designated as the southeast region provider of surface water rescue by the PSDA, (Public Safety Dive Association).

During summer in Florida, a lot of people are hitting the beaches, going out on their boats, golfing, playing tennis, etc. Sun is very good for us; it provides vitamin D, but it also can harm our skin in excess. Each year thousands of Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer. Most of these could be prevented if identified early and also if preventive measures are in place, such as use of sunblock and cover-up clothing. Skin cancer is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the layer of the skin, and there are three types of skin cancers mainly basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and the dreaded malignant melanoma. Their names are derived from the layers of the skin that the cancer growth starts. Anybody at any age can get skin cancer. There are several groups who are prone to this problem fair-skinned individuals of Northern European descent, individuals with blond hair or red hair. Even eye color can give us an idea who is prone to get sunburn and get skin cancers. As we all know the causative factor of sunburn and skin cancers are the suns ultraviolet rays. Contrary to common myths, going out and getting a burn early in the season will not protect you throughout the season, nor will tanning to protect or prevent a sunburn or skin cancer. Essentially, all color changes to the skin (i.e., sun tanning) are a form of damage from the suns UV rays. Here are some things to think about before you go out of doors: limit the amount of time that you are outdoors at one time, avoid peak periods of the day (a few hours before noon and a few hours after noon), think about going out early in the morning and coming in and doing other activities and then going out later in the day. If you are outdoors, do not forget sunblock with an SPF of at least 30. It filters out both the UVA and UVB rays that damage the skin, burn the skin and cause long-term wrinkling and spots. Make sure your sunscreen is water resistant and do not think just applying once a day is adequate. Remember to reapply multiple times a day. When you apply it, make sure you are coming out of a shower and have removed all the oils from your skin. Apply in a setting where it is cool and dry and allow about 15 to 30 minutes absorption time before you go outside. Do not be fooled if it is a cloudy day and think you are not going to get burned. A majority of the suns UV rays can penetrate clouds. When you are out on the water, there is extra reflection, so you should be particularly diligent in using an SPF. Be aware that sunblock products have an expiration date printed on the tube or bottle make sure what you use is fresh, otherwise it is not effective. Protective clothing is also a good option: There are some incredibly good products available through sporting goods and fishing supply stores that have a filtering quality and block the UVA and UV light and are cool to the skin and allow air to flow. Never pre-tan with a tanning bed. The tanning beds are 12 times more powerful in UV light and are not recommended at any point in time. If you do get sunburned, obviously, immediately seek cover. The sunburn will take days to heal. Applying moisturizers and creams may ease the discomfort. It is okay to use aspirin or nonsteroidal anti inflammatories to give you some relief, but they will not necessarily shorten the recovery period. Drink lots of water so that you are hydrated and avoid alcohol so you do not become dehydrated. We live in a beautiful state. There are a lot of great things to do outside. There is always plenty of sun. Be careful and enjoy yourself, and you can avoid a sunburn or skin cancer and still have great fun.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

C4TUESDAY, AUGUST5, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEHEALTH& LIFE Isaw a 96-year-old white female. She was diagnosed with myelodysplasia almost five years ago. At the time of diagnosis, she presented with anemia. In patients with myelodysplasia, bone marrow does not work well. Bone marrow makes blood cells. This is more common in senior citizens. These patients bone marrow makes fewer cells. The first cell line to be affected is usually red blood cells or RBCs. Therefore, the patient becomes anemic. The usual complaint is feeling tired or weak. There is a natural substance the kidneys secrete called erythropoietin. This substance stimulates bone marrow to make more RBCs. In patients with myelodysplasia, they need more erythropoietin than what the kidneys can make. Therefore, it is given as an injection once a week or less in my office. My patient was started on this five years ago. She initially responded well. Her blood count improved and she felt a lot better. She continued to respond for almost two years, but unfortunately, she failed to respond after that. She started requiring blood transfusions. I had a long discussion with the patient and her family. Her choices were to continue status quo or consider a low dose of chemotherapy with Vidaza. At the time of this discussion, she was 93. Obviously, this was not an easy decision. After a long discussion, both family and patient decided to try Vidaza. This is a chemotherapy that we give in the vein for seven days in a row and repeat it every four to five weeks. Many people are scared of chemotherapy. People think all chemotherapy drugs are the same; they cause nausea, vomiting and hair loss. We all have seen in real life or in the movies, young women who have lost all their hair due to chemotherapy it is a scary feeling. We need to realize there are approximately 100 different kinds of chemotherapy drugs and more are invented every year. Not all drugs are alike. Some are more toxic than others; some patients tolerate these drugs better than others. Do not rule out chemotherapy drugs just because of fear or hearing about some friends experience. My patient was started on chemotherapy, she is tolerating it very well and she is still taking the treatment, even at the age of 96. She has not lost her hair and she does not have any significant side effects. On the contrary, she is not requiring blood transfusions and she is feeling very well. Her quality of life is good. In short, do not be scared of chemotherapy. Talk to your cancer doctor about it. Unfounded fear can hurt and even cost your life.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Age is no bar in cancer treatment Dr. Sunil GandhiCANCER & BLOOD DISEASE There is a nice group of what I will call experienced men who get together once a week to ride their bicycles from Inverness to Floral City and back on the trail. Several members of this group are good friends, and one contacted me and asked me to touch on the subject of whether or not riding a bicycle increases ones chances of developing prostate cancer, and also, does riding a bicycle have any relationship to erectile dysfunction. Through the years, several different studies have tried to address this situation, and now a new study fuels the ongoing debate about the health risks of bicycle riding for men. In a recent study, researchers found that cyclists who bike more may face a higher risk of prostate cancer, but not a greater chance of infertility or erectile dysfunction. The study appeared in the July 11 issue of the Journal of Mens Health. In this study, researchers surveyed more than 5,000 male cyclists from 2012 to 2013. Eight percent of the men reported erectile dysfunction problems; however, the incidence of erectile dysfunction was the same between men who rode a bike a lot and those who did not ride very much. The investigators did find links between erectile dysfunction and three factors high blood pressure, smoking and older age. Secondly, the researchers didnt find any link between more cycling and more cases of infertility, which 1 percent of the men reported. Finally, just less than 1 percent of the men overall reported being diagnosed with prostate cancer. Those who biked the most, more than 8.5 hours a week, were much more likely to have prostate cancer than the other men. Of the 498 men who biked the most, 17 said they had prostate cancer (3.5 percent). Of those who biked the least, three out of 511 (0.5 percent) said they had prostate cancer, the findings showed. So, what does this mean to those of you who like to ride a bicycle? In my opinion, absolutely nothing. This type of study is called a retrospective study, a questionnaire of what you have done during the past several years or decades. It relies on a memory of what you did years ago and is often subject to exaggeration by the survey participants. In comparison, a prospective study would follow a group of participants for the next five to 10 years with good documentation and determine the outcome while knowing a great deal more about all the participants before the study starts. Overall, the findings are far from being written in stone and more important, they conflict with previous research on impotence and infertility. The benefit of riding a bike and participating in a regular exercise program will far outweigh any possible link to prostate cancer, so if you have that bike and like to ride it, then keep on going. And if you see a group of experienced men riding the trail, thank them for the question, and see if you can beat them to Floral City and back. If you do, make them buy breakfast.Dr. C.

HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, AUGUST5, 2014 C5 0 00H90Y_2x1 School starts tomorrow and all of us at Nature Coast EMS remind you that more traffic on the road leads to more delays and, unfortunately, sometimes more accidents. Look and listen. Know the rules of the road concerning school bus stops and watch for children. The first and easiest law to remember; if you are behind a school bus and it stops to pick up or drop off students, you must stop, and no, you cannot pass it. Secondly, on a two-lane highway, both directions must stop. Thirdly, if you are on a four-lane highway with a turn lane in between, both directions, (all four lanes), must stop. And finally, if you are on a four-lane highway with an actual median separation, only the vehicles behind the bus must stop; however, if you are in one of the lanes opposite the bus, you should still use caution. School traffic hours are roughly 7 to 9:30 a.m. and 2 to 4 p.m., so I recommend leaving the house earlier than normal to allow extra time for school traffic. Emergency vehicles While were talking look and listen, Nature Coast EMS reminds you to move over for emergency vehicles. Every minute counts in an emergency, so if you hear a siren, you should pay attention to see if you can determine which way the sound is coming from. If you see it, stop and pull over. No questions. Too often I have seen my team delayed through an intersection because drivers didnt stop or pull over. Slow down, move over As you approach emergency vehicles you are required by law to move out of the lane closest to the emergency vehicle and slow down. The law was created because there are a lot of accidents and injuries on the side of Florida highways and roads. The Move Over Law is designed to protect Florida police, fire and other emergency workers when they are on roads and highways. As you approach emergency vehicles you must move out of the lane closest to them if the road has two or more lanes traveling in your direction. Not only must you move over, but you must also slow down. The law states that you must slow down 20 mph less than the posted speed limit. So, for example, if you are on the Suncoast Parkway and the speed limit is 70 mph, you must slow down to 50 mph as you approach and pass emergency vehicles. Nature Coast EMS team members all too often see accidents that could have been avoided, so watch your speed, look out for children and be aware of the school buses. Best wishes to students, faculty and staff in Citrus County for a safe and happy school year.Katie Lucas is the public information officer at Nature Coast EMS.

But, did you know non-native plants can be equally as destructive? Some invasive plants may be attractive (often why they were imported in the first place), but their beauty does not outweigh the damage they do. In addition to their environmental damage, they cost millions of taxpayer dollars each year as we try to control them. There are steps you can do to help protect our native habitats (both plants and animals). The first step is to learn to identify what these invasive plants are. The schedule for the August free plants seminars is: 2 p.m. today, Aug. 5, at Homosassa Library 2 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 6, at Floral City Library 1:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 8, at Coastal Region Library 1 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 12, at Lakes Region Library 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 13, at Central Ridge Library 1 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 20, at Citrus Springs Library Master gardener volunteers will be available to discuss this topic, answer questions, identify plant problems and offer solutions to problems. Gardeners can also contact the Citrus County Extension anytime during business hours at 352-527-5700 (ask for Extension Director BJ Jarvis or any on-duty master gardener) to have your questions addressed, or email a master gardener at Masterg1@bocc.citrus.fl.us.

TUESDAY, AUGUST5, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Bob Hope said, If you watch a game, its fun. If you play it, its recreation. If you work at it, its golf. As you watch the cards closely, you play well and find bridge to be fun. The work is training your partner also to pay close attention. Todays deal can either be a 50-50 bet or a sure thing, depending upon the skill level of East and West. How should they card to defeat three no-trump? West leads the spade five. Declarer takes Easts king with his ace and attacks diamonds. North added one point for his decent fivecard diamond suit and raised to three notrump. South starts with only five top tricks: two spades (given the first trick) and three clubs. However, four more winners are readily available from the diamonds. So, if East has the diamond ace, the contract is guaranteed. If West has that ace, maybe he will not find a heart shift; or if he does, it will not prove lethal. Here, though, as you can see, if West leads the heart jack, then when he gets in with his diamond ace, the contract can be defeated. But how does West know to lead a heart rather than a club? West should duck the first diamond to get some help from his partner. East should play first the two to show an odd number. But on the second round, he could play either the eight or the three. By following suit with the eight, the higher card, East is expressing interest in the higher-ranking of hearts and clubs, the two unplayed suits. This points West in the right direction if he is watching.

R Manhattan Manhattan Dear Annie: My mother has always had a rocky relationship with her sister, Josie, for many reasons. The final straw came after Josie stole money from my mother seven years ago. They havent spoken to each other since. I understand that my aunt hurt my mother badly and what she did was unforgivable. I know Josie doesnt deserve another chance, but I wish my mother would give her one anyway. Josie has changed her ways over the past seven years and now lives a very stable life. I dont think shes the same person. No one in my family (including me) will ever trust Josie because of the things shes done. But I wish my mother would call her sister and say that she loves and forgives her. My siblings and I have talked to Mom about this, but she always brushes us off. I know this is between the two of them, but they arent getting any younger, and they dont have an eternity to reconcile. I dont want my mother or Josie to have any regrets. Is there anything we can do? Worried Daughter and Niece Dear Daughter: You are kind, forgiving and understanding to want your mother to reconcile with her sister before its too late. Unfortunately, until your mother reaches the same conclusion, there is little you can do. You say Josie has changed, but at the same time, you will never trust her. Its difficult to forgive someone who has repeatedly broken your trust and hurt you, and not all reconciliations are beneficial if the behavior continues. But you can ask your mother what Josie would need to do to get back in her good graces and then see whether Josie is up to the task. Beyond that, please let your mother decide how much pain she is willing to risk to have her sister back in her life. Dear Annie: I read your columns about babies crying in church. I have a different issue. What about parents who completely ignore what their children do in church? Last Sunday, there were two children, a boy and a girl, about 7 or 8, who spent the entire service crawling under the pews, lifting up the kneeler, playing catch, kicking and shoving each other and completely destroying my ability to concentrate on the mass. The parents did absolutely nothing. The father fell asleep, and the mother never looked at her kids, not even when they bumped against her. Right before communion, they started pinching each other and whimpering in pain. By then I couldnt take it anymore. I told them to knock it off. They stopped and put their heads on their parents shoulders. The parents glanced at me with astonishment. Meanwhile, in the row behind me was a single mom with four kids who left twice with the baby for 10 minutes and left the rest of her little kids alone. Parents seem to think that their children have the right to do anything they want whenever they want. Then they wonder why the kids get into trouble. Fed-Up Grandma in Chicago Dear Grandma: Parents often dont realize that discipline makes children feel secure and loved. When kids are allowed to run wild, they dont know what the boundaries are, and they keep pushing until they do. But we also understand that parents of young children can be exhausted. We admire those who are kind enough to engage the children in some quiet activity and give the parents a break. Dear Annie: I never had a weight problem until I was older. When I read about Concerned Old Man in West Hills calling his niece fat, it reminded me of a T-shirt I once saw. It said, I may be fat, but you are ugly, and I can diet.
