The extremists took captive hundreds of women from a religious minority, according to an Iraqi official, while thousands of other civilians fled in fear. Many of Americas allies backed the U.S. intervention, pledging urgent steps to assist the legions of refugees and displaced people. Those in jeopardy included thousands of members of the Yazidi religious minority whose plight trapped on a mountaintop by the militants prompted the U.S. to airdrop crates of food and water to them. The extremists campaign of terror against the innocent, including the Yazidi and Christian minorities, and its grotesque and targeted acts of violence bear all the warning signs and hallmarks of genocide, said U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. For anyone who needed a wake-up call, this is it. Underscoring the sense of alarm, a spokesman for Iraqs human rights ministry said hundreds of Yazidi women had been taken captive by the militants. Kamil Amin, citing reports from the victims families, said some of the women were being held in schools in Iraqs second-largest city, Mosul. We think that the terrorists by now consider them slaves and they have vicious plans for them, Amin told The Associated Press. We think that these women are going to be used in Associated PressWASHINGTON After years of resisting the pull of more Mideast conflicts, President Barack Obama has sent the military back into action in Iraq, where he once accused his predecessor of waging a dumb war. U.S. planes on Friday bombed Islamic militants who were towing artillery outside Irbil near U.S. personnel, the Pentagon said. The aggressive insurgency threatens to undermine Obamas legacy as the commander in chief who ended a long and unpopular war in which nearly 4,500 American troops died.Upheaval of Iraq threatens Obama legacySee OBAMA/ Page A5 See IRAQ/ Page A5 Americas allies pledge urgent steps to assist legions of refugees County lassos horse lovers Local group improves equine trailsPATFAHERTY Staff writerEasy to access, well-marked, mapped and maintained riding trails attract recreational horse riders with a subsequent economic benefit for Citrus County. The county has quietly emerged as a great place to ride horses, with opportunities for camping and horse-friendly communities to consider for fullor part-time residency. Plus, private horse ownership fuels regular spending for feed, veterinary care, tack, barn equipment and specialized vehicles. Florida Forever Back Country Horsemen has been a driving force in a local effort to maintain and preserve existing riding trails, creating new ones and expanding trail access. Club leaders are quick to point out, it is not a social group, but a boots on the ground working group and the work is never ending. The Citrus Tract of the Withlacoochee State Forest has been a focal point for the club, which started in 2007. The club, with about 45 members, has also worked in the Croom Tract in Hernando County. The clubs endeavors have been recognized by the Florida Forest Service and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Club efforts, aided by a grant, have resulted in a significant expansion of well-marked and mapped riding trails in the forest. In 2011, the club was awarded a $4,000 grant from Tractor Supply Co. through the American Quarter Horse Association. Funds were used to purchase trail signs and print maps. Along with trail signs, the club paints the trails with numerous blue confidence markers, the statewide system for informing horse riders they are on the trail or a turn is coming up. The club is responsible for adding about 25 miles of new trails and about 13 miles of neighborhood-access trails. One of the biggest changes, club president Sally McDavid. said, was the original 25 miles was just a big loop around the forest and now there is an actual trail system, with eight different trails.HORSECAMPINGThe clubs trail work has made Tillis Hill camping area in the Withlacoochee State Forest, off of County Road 480, an attraction for horse-riding visitors as well as residents. Incumbents re-elected in Inverness, CRBoth the cities of Crystal River and Inverness closed ballot-qualifying week with no one to oppose incumbents. That means neither city will have a municipal election this year. In Crystal River, reelected without opposition are Mayor Jim Farley and Seat 2 Councilman Mike Gudis. In Inverness, reelected without opposition are: Mayor Bob Plaisted, Seat 1 Councilman David Ryan, Seat 3 Councilman Ken Hinkle and Seat 5 Councilwoman Linda Bega. Mike Wright/ staff writer NEWS BRIEF SALLY McDAVID/Special to the ChronicleCalvin McDavid pauses his horse in a shady spot on one of the equestrian trails in the Citrus Tract of the Withlacoochee State Forest. Eight different trails Eagle Ridge, Dixie Land, Deer Haven, Middle Earth, Turkey Oak, Pine Valley, Thunder Road and El Dorado have been signed, mapped and maintained by the Florida Forever Back Country Horsemen. INSIDE MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleSally McDavid and her husband Cal are part of a large group that has been improving the expansive network of trails in the Withlacoochee State Forest, clearing and marking them for riders. See HORSES/ Page A2 Truck driver arrestedERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerAn occupied Citrus County school bus was rear-ended Friday, sending two students to the hospital, transportation director Marilyn Farmer said. The bus, carrying 34 Lecanto Primary School students, was making a routine stop on Cardinal Street and Rudolph Point in Homosassa at 8:34 a.m. when the accident occurred. The bus driver, Jamie Barton, 30, of Homosassa, was at a complete stop with her lights activated when a maroon 1990 Chevrolet pickup truck driven by Johnny Harless, 31, of Homosassa, came over a hill too fast, according to a Florida BUSTERTHOMPSON For the ChronicleBEVERLY HILLS Since May, residents of Beverly Hills who are customers of Rolling Oaks Utilities Inc. have seen an increase in their water and wastewater rates. According to John Patton, president of Rolling Oaks Utilities, residents rates have increased by 35 percent. Were not killing anybody here. Were just trying to run an efficient utility and, for the money we get, we do a good job. Patton said. Starting in November of 2013, Rolling Oaks began preparing a case for a rate increase, which was presented to Citrus County Water and Wastewater Authority and unanimously approved on April 7. For Patton, the increase shouldnt have been a surprise to consumers. When its coming out to the board, we do a mailer, Patton. We send a letter to every customer that says we have a rate case, and its coming out at this board meeting. Anybody who shows up has an opportunity to speak. According to Patton, only seven people showed up to the Rolling Oaks raises rates School bus accident injures two students See BUS/ Page A2 Special to the Chronicle The driver of a Chevy pickup rear-ended a stopped Citrus County school bus in Homosassa on Friday morning.

board meeting, with only one resident voicing complaints over audits and reviews committed by Burton & Associates, a consulting firm based in St. Augustine. During the interim between November and the approval by the county water authority board in April, Burton & Associates reviewed the original rate case proposed by the utility company. (Burton & Associates) reviews it for reasonableness, and compares our current numbers to historic records, Patton said. Some of the things they throw out, and some of the things they capitalize. Pattons original proposal recommended a 72 percent rate increase. This was decreased to 42 percent after being reviewed by Burton, and then to 35 percent during Aprils board meeting, according to county minutes. Rolling Oaks Utilities serves more than 5,700 water customers and almost 4,500 wastewater customers in the Beverly Hills area. Liane Peterson of Oakwood Village was one of those customers who received the recent rate increases. Peterson voiced concern that the rate hikes would be detrimental to those with fixed incomes. There was a lot of people over there. One woman was crying. She said, I cant even make ends meet now, said Peterson about customers she encountered outside the Rolling Oaks Utilities office. Frank DeGasperi, another Oakwood Village resident, feels that the rate increases punish those who are trying to conserve their water usage. According to DeGasperi, he used 8,000 gallons less water than in the previous billing cycle, when he used13,000 gallons, and only saved $6, when he expected to save up to $20. I talked to somebody when I paid the bill, and I got mostly doubletalk. Wheres the incentive to conserve water? DeGasperi said. Their trucks are running around with conserve water signs on them. According to Patton, 4.5 percent of the $10.66 base fee for water goes back to the county. This would also be the third time Rolling Oaks Utilities has increased its rates in 30 years. I cant tell someone how to budget their life, Patton said about reactions from residents. I have made it a point to go the board meetings, and I am here to provide safe drinking water for this community, but I need the money to do that. The utility company also plans to increase rates again in about two years. It would be a lot more modest, Patton said about the future increase. Highway Patrol report. Harless was said to be distracted by his radio, according to the FHP, and upon seeing the 2009 model year bus, slid 104 feet and crashed into the rear of the school vehicle. Initially, there were no reports of injuries. As law enforcement personnel arrived at the scene, however, one student complained of back pain and was transported by emergency medical services to Oak Hill Hospital for precautionary observation. Reportedly, as they were transporting students from one bus to another, a parent arrived on scene and his or her child also complained of an injury. She was transported to Citrus Memorial hospital by her parents for medical attention. No other injuries were reported. Farmer said as soon as students were cleared by law enforcement they were transported to school by the other bus. Officials contacted parents. Harless was arrested on charges of multiple drivers license suspensions and cited for careless driving and violation of a drivers license restriction for not wearing corrective lenses. Damages were reported as $20,000 for the car and $3,000 for the bus. Both drivers were reported to have been wearing seat belts. The incident remains under FHP investigation. This is our one campground in the Withlacoochee State Forest that is horse friendly, said Ranger Eddie Duval with the Florida Forest Service. In this part of the world you are very limited to where you can go to public lands, bring your horse and camp. A pair of barns on the edge of the campground has 28 indoor stalls that can be reserved with a campsite. Unlike other campgrounds in the state forest, reservations are required. Starting about late September and October, people just pile in, said McDavid. People also trailer their horses in for day trips. Duval said the site was once occupied by the fire tower that now sits off of County Road 581 and it remains one of few hills left on the Brooksville Ridge that has not been mined. The club has taken on responsibility for maintaining and replacing barn hoses and feed buckets. And just to the north at the Holder Mine Trailhead, the club volunteers spent a couple of work days putting in a parking area. We have such a great group of hard working people in this organization, she said.Everything that has been accomplished is the result of teamwork and participation of our members.OPPORTUNITYMcDavid views horse owners as an opportunity for the county in terms of attracting visitors as well as new residents who will make an ongoing contribution to the economy. People come to Tillis Hill from all over the state and Southeast to camp and enjoy the trails, she said. There are also a number of camping/boarding facilities in the area that cater to the snowbirds who might be here a few weeks to a few months. I can actually count five of our snowbirds, who used to camp locally until they purchased their own place. Real estate broker Terri Hartman, who specializes in rural property, agreed people do buy here to ride horses, bikes and motorcycles, with most of her customers coming from South Florida. She said houses and land adjoining the forest sell for more money because there is a lot of demand and not many properties available. A recent $365,000 home sale just south of C.R. 480 had listed riding the horse trails in the state forest as one of its attributes. As the new Rural King store in Crystal River was getting ready to open, store manager Steve Randall said the numbers of farms and ranches in the area are the main reason they selected this location.A2SATURDAY, AUGUST9, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL 000IX5J 527-0012 72 HOUR BLIND FACTORY FAUX WOOD BLINDS, TOP TREATMENTS DRAPERY, SHADES, SHUTTERS VERTICALS B LIND S 1657 W.

MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS The Citrus Memorial Health Foundation board could begin the process of dissolving as a corporation 14 months after Hospital Corporation of America starts its 50-year lease of Citrus Memorial hospital. A four-person committee comprised of members from both the foundation and Citrus County Hospital Board reached that conclusion Thursday night. The CCHB, during a Friday morning meeting, agreed with the dissolution plan, even though trustees had wanted the foundation to dissolve immediately after HCA takes control of the hospital. Foundation attorney Clark Stillwell recommended no dissolution action for at least a year to ensure the hospitals sovereign immunity continues through two significant medical malpractice lawsuits set for trial in November and December. Sovereign immunity protects government agencies from lawsuit damages above $200,000. The foundation has sovereign immunity because it operates the hospital on behalf of the CCHB. CCHB attorney Bill Grant said sovereign immunity for the foundation wouldnt change even if the corporation is dissolved. He said the issue is whether the hospital had sovereign immunity at the time of the incident for which the lawsuit is based. Stillwell said he didnt think Grants opinion was worth the risk for lawsuits that could cost the hospital $6million in punitive damages if sovereign immunity is removed. Its a safe haven, he said. Trustees had wanted the foundation to dissolve immediately after the HCA takeover to prevent the foundation from spending money for anything other than wrapping up business. Stillwell said a foundation resolution would solve the trustees concerns without dissolving the corporation. Trustee Dr. Mark Fallows said he doesnt agree with Stillwells assessment on the sovereign immunity issue, but said it wasnt worth jamming up the HCA deal. Im not willing to fight over this, he said. In other transaction-related business, the CCHB will consider asking the Legislature for a bill that eliminates the hospital boards existence seven years after the HCA lease is signed. Grant said liability for enforcing the HCA lease would be shifted to the county commission. He said seven years allows time for the statute of limitations for lawsuits against the hospital board to end. The CCHBs taxing authority ends after this year. The tax amount set in September will be the last.Around theCOUNTY CCC meeting at Old CourthouseThe Citrus County Council will present Citrus Countys colorful past at its next meeting, at 9a.m. Wednesday, Aug.13, at the old Courthouse Heritage Museum, 1 Courthouse Square, Inverness.

Legislative committees approve new districts Final vote to be next week Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida legislative committees on Friday approved a proposal to make slight changes to seven congressional districts to comply with a court order. Panels in both the House and Senate passed the new map altering the districts, which stretch from central to northeast Florida. A final vote in the full House and Senate on the new map is expected early next week. Leon County Circuit Court Judge Terry Lewis ruled last month the original maps passed by legislators in 2012 was intended to benefit Republicans, in violation of a constitutional amendment passed by voters in 2010. The ruling specified that Congressional Districts 5 and 10 were invalid. Republican legislative leaders defended their new maps as the best way to comply with the court order without disturbing other districts throughout the state while obeying the federal Voting Rights Acts prohibition against undercutting minority districts. I think we did an excellent job. Im very proud of it, said Rep. Richard Corcoran, R-Land OLakes. (Judge Lewis) clearly said legally why we had to be here. We addressed all of his legal concerns. But the League of Women Voters, which brought the lawsuit, contends that small changes to the map are not enough. The group takes particular issue with District 5, currently held by U.S.Rep. Corrine Brown, DJacksonville a skinny district running from Jacksonville to Orlando that was designed to produce a majority African-American district. The league prefers a district that runs west from Jacksonville to the heart of the Panhandle. Members of the House committee voted down an alternative proposal from Democrats along party lines that would have made changes to only three districts, but that lessened the black voting age population in Browns district from nearly 50 percent to 43.7 percent. Lewis has given lawmakers until next Friday to adopt new districts. He will conduct a hearing Aug. 20 to decide whether to conduct a special election after the Nov. 4 general election in districts affected by the changes in the new map. The Republicans argue that any changes should take effect in 2016. According to the Florida Department of State, 284,673 absentee ballots for the Aug. 26 primary election have already been cast statewide.

Watterson collaborated with Pearls Before Swine cartoonist Stephan Pastis for the three comic strips in June after a long absence from the funny pages. The strips will be sold Friday by Dallas-based Heritage Auctions, with each expected to sell for more than $10,000. Heritage said the three-strip arc follows Pastis alter-ego as he turns the drawing of the comic over to a second-grader. At Wattersons request, the artwork is being sold on behalf of Team Cul de Sac, a charity established in honor of cartoonist Richard Thompson who has Parkinsons. The proceeds will go to the Michael J.

Former Saturday Night Live cast member Victoria Jackson has lost her bid as an independent candidate for a seat on a county commission in Tennessee. Jackson, who calls herself a tea party conservative, moved to Thompsons Station last year and said she filed as an independent to run for the Williamson County Commission because shes very disappointed with the Republican Party. The Tennessean reported Jackson received 632 votes. Two others received more votes: Judy Lynch Herbert with 1,422 and Betsy Hester with 1,380. The county commission has two commissioners in each of its 12 districts. Jackson had made appearances at multiple political events in Middle Tennessee since making her home there.Allens handprints on Pawtucket walk of famePROVIDENCE, R.I.

Allen put his prints and signature into wet cement Thursday afternoon while filming in neighboring Providence. The panel will be installed later. Pawtuckets walk is outside a city diner and includes handprints from Dustin Hoffman and others from the movie American Buffalo, which was filmed in the blue-collar mill city in 1995.

demeaning ways by those terrorists to satisfy their animalistic urges in a way that contradicts all the human and Islamic values. For the U.S. military, which withdrew its forces from Iraq in late 2011 after more than eight years of war, the re-engagement began when two F/A-18 jets dropped 500-pound bombs on a piece of artillery and the truck towing it. The Pentagon said the militants were using the artillery to shell Kurdish forces defending Irbil, the capital of Iraqs autonomous Kurdish region and a base for numerous American personnel. Later Friday, the U.S. launched a second round of airstrikes against targets near Irbil, U.S. officials said. The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they werent authorized to discuss the strikes publicly, said unmanned aircraft hit a mortar and four Navy F/A-18 fighter jets struck and destroyed a seven-vehicle convoy Expanding from their stronghold of Mosul, the militants have captured a string of towns and Iraqs largest hydroelectric dam and reservoir in recent weeks. Ethnic and religious minorities, fearing persecution and slaughter, have fled as their towns fell. Many had taken refuge in the Khazer Camp, set up near Irbil, but it was empty Friday as nearby fighting prompted families to flee once again. Some made their way by car or on foot to Irbil; others were unaccounted for amid the sea of fleeing people. According to the U.N., more than 500,000 people have been displaced by the violence in Iraq since June, bringing the total this year to well over 1 million. In Irbil, hundreds of uprooted men crowded the streets of a Christiandominated neighborhood, expressing relief at the news of U.S. airstrikes. Nazar, one man lingering outside a barebones building-turnedshelter, fled his mainly Christian town of Hamdaniya on Wednesday, when their home began to shudder from the blast of nearby mortar fire. We want a solution, said Nazar, who spoke on condition he be identified only by his first name, fearing his familys safety. We dont want to flee our homes and jobs like this. What is our future? In contrast to Washingtons decision to invade Iraq more than a decade ago, both the airdrop and the authorization of military action against the Islamic State group were widely welcomed by Iraqi and Kurdish officials fearful of the militants advance. We thank Barack Obama, said Khalid Jamal Alber, from the Religious Affairs Ministry in the Kurdish government. In his announcement Thursday night, Obama had identified protecting the Yazidis and defending Americans as Iraq as the two objectives for the airstrikes. But on Friday, his spokesman, Josh Earnest, said the U.S. was also prepared to use military force to assist Iraqi forces and the Kurds peshmerga militia. While Iraqs military has proven unable in many cases to thwart the Islamic State forces capture of key Iraqi cities, Earnest called the peshmerga a capable fighting force that had shown an ability to regroup effectively. At a checkpoint about 23 miles from Irbil, Kurdish militiamen vowed fierce resistance to any further Islamic State advances, but they also remarked on the ferocity of their foe. Capt. Ziyran Mahmoud, 28, said Islamic State fighters wore suicide belts as they advanced in armored vehicles and would detonate them killing soldiers from both sides if Kurdish fighters came too close. They are ready to blow themselves up and die, Mahmoud said. But the peshmerga arent afraid. We are also ready to die for our homeland. The Islamic State group captured Mosul in June, and then launched a blitz toward the south, sweeping over Sunni-majority towns almost to the capital, Baghdad. It already holds large parts of western Iraq, as well as large swaths of neighboring Syria. Iraqi government forces crumbled in the face of the assault but have since been able to prevent the militants from advancing into Shiite-majority areas. In the north, the Kurds have been the main line of defense against the radicals, but their fighters are stretched over a long front trying to fend them off. U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, traveling in India, said if Islamic militants threaten U.S. interests in Iraq or the thousands of refugees in the mountains, the U.S. military has enough intelligence to clearly single out the attackers and launch effective airstrikes. He also said more than 60 of the 72 bundles of food and water airdropped onto the mountain reached the people stranded there. The International Rescue Committee said it was providing emergency medical care for up to 4,000 dehydrated Yazidis, mostly women and children, who survived without food or water for up to six days hiding in the Sinjar mountains before fleeing to a refugee camp in Syria, where a civil war is raging. Officials in Britain, Germany and elsewhere pledged financial aid to support humanitarian efforts in Iraq, and several top European officials expressed support for President Obamas decision to intervene with airstrikes. It also raises fresh questions about whether Obamas desire to end the war clouded his assessment of the risks of fully withdrawing U.S. troops, as well as his judgment about the threat posed by the extremists. Obama insisted the U.S. was not moving toward a protracted conflict. I will not allow the United States to be dragged into fighting another war in Iraq, he said late Thursday at the White House. He also said the U.S. had completed airdrops of humanitarian aid to Iraqi religious minorities who are under siege. The moves are, so far, more limited in scope than the invasion undertaken by President George W. Bush after the Sept. 11 attacks. The chief rationale for Obamas authorization for military strikes in Iraq was to protect American forces serving in Irbil. They include some of the forces the president sent in this summer to help train and assist Iraqs struggling security forces. In trying to help Iraq protect civilians, Obama said the U.S. has a responsibility to stop imminent massacres. Its an echo of the argument he used when the U.S. joined NATOs bombing campaign in Libya in 2010. Obama has not followed the same path in Syrias civil war, where more than 170,000 people have died. The conditions that returned the U.S. to military action in Iraq can be traced back months or years, as the presidents critics contend. As recently as January, Obama was dismissive of the al-Qaida breakaway Islamic militants. In an interview with the New Yorker magazine, he said comparing the group to the terrorist network established by Osama bin Laden was like comparing a junior varsity basketball team to an NBA squad. Yet U.S. intelligence and defense officials were warning about the potential threat from the Islamic State, which had strengthened in Syria. Obamas comments reflected his limited appetite for wading back into Iraq or starting a military engagement in Syria, where he authorized an air assault last summer but never gave the order to go ahead. Obamas critics draw a direct connection between that approach and his decision to withdraw all American troops from Iraq in late 2011. He did so in large part because Iraqs government refused to sign a security agreement providing U.S. troops immunity. But White House opponents say the president should have pushed harder for a deal in order to avoid the type of situation now unfolding. We are already paying a very heavy price for our inaction, and if we do not change course, the costs of our inaction will only grow, said Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. They called on Obama to extend his authorization of airstrikes against the Islamic State beyond Iraq and into Syria.

Associated PressDENVER His labor of love began with an effort to find the owner of a Purple Heart that was given to him as a gift. Since then, Zachariah Fike, a captain in the Vermont National Guard, has returned more than 100 Purple Heart medals, sometimes lost, sometimes stolen, to relatives of the original recipients. Most of those recipients were awarded the medal after being killed in combat. Its my mission. Its my ministry, if you will, Fike said this week at a Denver national convention of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, an organization of veterans wounded in combat. I cant keep up. Fike, who created Purple Hearts Reunited in 2012, has accumulated another 300 Purple Heart medals to deliver to families. The service members medals and other property often are lost in estate sales, found in basements and attics, or sometimes in pawn shops, antique stores or thrift stores if they are stolen. The medals keep coming at a rate of three to five per week. Fike, 33, of Georgia, Vermont, is a 16-year veteran and an antiques collector. He was born in Wiesbaden, Germany, to parents who both served as U.S.Army drill sergeants. His mother gave him a Purple Heart medal as a Christmas present in 2009. The medal had been awarded to Corrado Piccoli, a private killed on Oct.7, 1944, in Fremifontaine, France, near the border with Germany. I knew that medal didnt belong to me. And it sent me on a journey to find the family, Fike said. Before he could do so, Fike was deployed to Afghanistan as a logistics officer. He was wounded in a rocket attack at Bagram Airfield in September 2010 and was awarded his own Purple Heart. Back home, he found Piccolis family and learned how the medal ended up in an antique shop, where his mother bought it for $100. Piccolis nephew had been given the medal as a family heirloom and placed it in a storage locker when he joined the Navy. He shipped out in the mid-1970s and, while on tour, his property in the locker was auctioned off when he couldnt pay the rental fee. I saw something very special happen around that return, Fike said. After the servicemans death, the family kind of went on in their own direction. They all separated. Because of this medal return, I saw a family come together again for the first time. And they had their first-ever family reunion 65 years later. Piccoli had six surviving siblings. Fike returns Purple Hearts in a framed shadow box with supporting documentation, but he also works with the Defense Department to obtain all medals earned by the service member. Theyre presented in person in a ceremony that brings together friends and family. He also returns identification dog tags, canteens, pocket watches, cavalry swords and anything else that bears a service members name. Fike shrugs off suggestions that he simply mail the medals instead of arranging ceremonies for their return. Before Vietnam, the Purple Heart was sent via registered mail, Fike said. He said he wants to avoid the impersonal nature of that discarded procedure. He cites the case of Air Force 2ndLt. Thomas E. HadleyII, who was killed in action in Korea. Hadleys surviving sister, Connie Bachman of Lexington, Massachusetts, dressed up for a ceremony in which friends and family gathered to honor her brothers service. She died a month later. They saw her shine one last time instead of a funeral one month later, Fike said. To me, that meant something and I knew what we were doing was the right thing. And every story is like that. During the convention, the Military Order of the Purple Heart plans to absorb Fikes foundation, making it part of its mission to lobby on behalf of veterans health care and other benefits. Fike will continue his involvement. Roger Baillargeon, 87INVERNESSRoger Harold Baillargeon, 87, of Inverness, Florida, died on Aug.6, 2014, at his home.

Tina had been in the loving care of her family, especially her primary caregiver and son, Jonathan, for several months, assisted by the compassionate nurses of Citrus Hills Hospice. Tina was born July 30, 1923, in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and lived in the New Hampshire sea coast area for most of her life. Her parents were Italian immigrants although she spoke English by the time she entered first grade at St. Patricks School, it was a second language. She graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1942, and found work as an operator, then a supervisor, at New England Bell Telephone Co. She embarked on a 59year marriage for life to Robert V OBrien, DMD, in 1947, following his military service during World WarII. They raised three children in Rye, New Hampshire. Tina was the homemaker and sometimes office manager in her husbands dental practice. Tina was a special person to all who met her: lovely, vivacious, intelligent, playful. She was a devout Roman Catholic. A skilled gardener, her effect on plants paralleled her impact on people instilling life in abundance. She also perfected an American variant of Sicilian cuisine adapted from her mothers table, played a very competitive game of golf, and traversed the New England ski slopes right along with her children. Later in life, she and Bob wintered in Florida and shifted summer residency to Puget Sound, Washington, home to two of her children. Her good taste and style were reflected in her homes and her couture. She leaves us with sunny memories and warm hearts. She was predeceased by her husband, Bob; her parents, Rose and Frank Cacciatore; and brothers Stephen and Dominic. She is survived by her daughter, Kathyleen OBrien; sons, Robert Jr. and Jonathan; and grandsons, Ian Monahan, and Bobby, Connor and Anthony OBrien. The family is planning a mass and memorial service in Rye, New Hampshire in October 2014, with details to follow.

Knutson, 78, of Floral City, Florida, died July 29, 2014, at Citrus Hospice in Lecanto. He was born February 8, 1936 in La Crosse, Wisconsin. He is survived by longtime companion, Anne Morgan of Floral City; daughters, Barbara Malone of Lakeland and Deann Jacobson of Rapid City, South Dakota; and former wife, Joan Knutson of Brooksville.

Jerry was a Veteran and served in the US Army where he was one of the original Green Berets. After the service he completed an engineering degree and worked for IBM as a systems engineer in Rochester, Minnesota until he retired at age 47 to sail the world with a Coast Guard course on sailing and a $3 plastic sextant as he set off across the Atlantic. His life was full of adventure, great friends, and most of all fun and good times. He was a quiet, unassuming man who would help all who needed help. He was just the kind of person we all want and need as our friend. A special thanks to his local extended family from The Wishing Stone, IRRU, Macs Place and the Inverness VFW. They will give him a Norwegian sendoff in the Gulf at a date to be determined.

Interestrates Associated PressNEW YORK A burst of buying Friday in U.S. stocks defied slumps in other markets and offered hope for investors shaken by geopolitical turmoil. Major U.S. stock indexes closed up around 1 percent, buoyed by signs that tensions in Ukraine might be easing. The rally on Wall Street contrasted with price declines in European and Asian stock markets. Fear has been creeping into stock and bond markets around the world in recent weeks against a backdrop of escalating global conflicts. News Friday of U.S. fighter jets dropping bombs in Iraq and the end of a three-day cease-fire in Gaza weighed further on European markets. Asian markets also had a bad week, including a 5 percent drop in Japans benchmark stock index. As anxieties have risen in recent days, money has been flowing from around the world into U.S. Treasurys, the perennial safe haven for spooked investors. U.S. stock markets bucked the trend Friday as investors snapped up shares that had been beaten down in recent days. The buying surged late in the day on reports that Russia had ended military exercises near Ukraine. The Dow Jones industrial average surged 1.1 percent, its biggest gain since March. The index remains 3.4 percent below its record high set July 16. Jim Paulsen, chief investment strategist at Wells Capital Management, said he wasnt surprised by the Wall Street rally. The U.S. economy will grow at 3 percent or 4 percent for the rest of the year, Paulsen said. Are geopolitical risks really going to have an economic impact? Its a question thats been unsettling investors. In June and most of July, prices in major stock indexes in the United States rose even in the face of the widening conflicts around the world. Some experts warned markets had grown dangerously complacent. But then the West imposed increasingly crushing sanctions on Russia for supporting rebels in Ukraine. Israels bloody war in Gaza dragged on. And Sunni extremists made advances in northern Iraq. Prices then began a sustained decline, even in resilient U.S. markets. U.S. stocks in July posted their first monthly loss since January. The fear has driven up various government bond prices, too, and sent yields down. The yield on German government notes maturing in 10 years, for instance, hit an all-time low Friday. The yield on U.S. notes of the same maturity has reached its lowest level in about a year. Another sign of worry, the VIX, a gauge of expectation of future U.S. stock volatility, has climbed nearly 50 percent since early July. One fear is that Europe could fall back into another recession after having emerged from one last year. The economies of the 18 countries that share the euro currency are barely growing, and many of them depend on Russia for natural gas imports. Germany imports nearly all its natural gas from Russia. US stocks buck turmoil weighing on global markets BusinessHIGHLIGHTS Malaysia plans overhaul of national airlineKUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia Malaysias state investment company said Friday it plans to make Malaysia Airlines fully government owned, removing it from the countrys stock exchange before carrying out an overhaul of the carrier that is reeling from double disasters. Khazanah Nasional, which owns 69 percent of Malaysia Airlines, said it has proposed to the carriers board that it buy out minority shareholders at 27 sen (8 cents) a share, which is 29 percent higher than the airlines average share price over the previous three months. The takeover would cost 1.38 billion ringgit ($429 million). Malaysia Airlines has been hit by two major disasters this year, which added to its longstanding financial woes.US wholesale inventories rise 0.3 percentWASHINGTON U.S. wholesalers restocked their warehouses at a modest pace in June for a second straight month, a sign they may anticipate slower growth ahead. The Commerce Department said Friday that wholesale inventories rose 0.3 percent, the same as the previous month. Mays inventory gain was revised down from 0.5 percent. The slowdown in restocking likely reflects weaker wholesale sales. Sales grew just 0.2 percent in June, down from 0.7 percent in May. Slower rebuilding of inventories can drag on growth. Thats because it means fewer orders for factory goods.McDonalds sales hit by China scandal, US weaknessNEW YORK McDonalds said Friday that a global sales figure fell 2.5 percent in July, dragged down by persistent weakness in the U.S. and a food safety scare in China. The worlds biggest hamburger chain said that the decline included a 3.2 percent drop in the U.S. and a 7.3 percent drop in the unit encompassing Asia, the Middle East and Africa. The results reflect what is likely to be just the beginnings of the fallout from a Chinese food scandal late last month.Judge rejects $324.5M settlement of tech wage caseSAN FRANCISCO A federal judge rejected as too low a $324.5 million settlement of a class-action lawsuit alleging Google and Apple conspired with several other technology companies to block their top workers from getting better job offers. The Friday ruling by U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh concludes the more than 60,000 high-tech workers represented in the 3-yearold lawsuit deserve to be paid more money, based on the evidence indicating their earning power was undermined by the collusion among their employers. Koh estimated that the workers should receive at least $380 million.GM compensation fund gets claims in 63 death casesDETROIT Sixty-three death claims have been filed so far with the lawyer handling payments for those involved in wrecks caused by faulty General Motors ignition switches. A spokeswoman for compensation expert Kenneth Feinberg says he received 125 claims by Friday afternoon. Sixty-two others seek payments for injuries. Feinberg started taking claims Aug. 1. Spokeswoman Camille Biros says Feinberg still has to determine if the claims are eligible for payments. The number of claims filed does not equate in any way to the number that will ultimately be deemed eligible, she said in an e-mail message. With all of these compensation programs, you will receive many claims that cannot even get beyond the first test of eligibility.GM issues 6 more recalls covering 312,000 vehiclesDETROIT General Motors is issuing six more recalls totaling more than 312,000 vehicles as the company cleans up past safety issues. The recalls in North America pushed GMs total for the year to 66, covering just over 29 million cars and trucks. That beats the companys old full-year record and has pushed this total number for the industry this year to more than 40 million, also an annual record.US productivity recovers after steep Q1 fallWASHINGTON The Labor Department said Friday that that productivity increased 2.5 percent at a seasonally adjusted annual rate in the April-June quarter, after plummeting 4.5 percent in the first quarter. That was the steepest drop in 31 years, and reflected a sharp 2.1 percent contraction in the economy. Economists blamed most of that shrinkage on temporary factors, such as harsh weather and a cutback in stockpiling by businesses. Productivity measures output per hour of work. Greater productivity increases living standards because it enables companies to pay their workers more without having to increase prices, which can boost inflation.US cool to Argentina world court bid over defaultWASHINGTON An attempt by Argentina to sue the U.S. in the world court appears unlikely to get off the ground. Argentina had sought to bring the case to the International Court of Justice in the Hague after a series of rulings in U.S. courts forced the South American country into a default on its sovereign debt. The U.S. would have to agree to grant the international court jurisdiction for the case to proceed. A State Department spokesperson signaled Friday that the U.S. would not do so. The spokesperson said the world court is not an appropriate venue for the matter and that Argentina should negotiate with its creditors.Attorneys general want flavored e-cigarette banALBANY, N.Y. Attorneys general from more than two dozen states want federal regulators to impose restrictions on electronic cigarettes, including a ban on the more than 7,000 flavors now available. In a letter Friday to the Food and Drug Administration, they say limits on advertising and prohibiting flavors besides tobacco and menthol will help protect minors. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says that while they contain no tobacco, e-cigarettes have all the same addictive qualities as regular cigarettes. In April, the federal agency proposed treating e-cigarettes as tobacco products.Etihad buys 49 percent of loss-making AlitaliaROME Fast-growing Etihad Airways took effective control of Italys loss-making national carrier Alitalia on Friday, injecting $750 million in a deal that will see the Gulf airline gain access to one of Europes major markets. Etihad, which is buying a 49 percent stake in the Rome-based carrier, said Friday it will restructure Alitalia.One killed in blast at refinery in northern MexicoMEXICO CITY Mexicos state-owned oil company says one worker died when a gas leak caught fire and shout out flames at a refinery in the northern state of Tamaulipas. Petroleos Mexicanos, known as Pemex, said the blast Friday also injured 11 workers at the refinery in Ciudad Madero. The company said the blast happened at a coker plant that wasnt operating because of maintenance work being carried out at the time of the accident.From wire reports

OPINION Page A8SATURDAY, AUGUST 9, 2014 Re-elect Kennedy to school boardThomas Kennedy has done an excellent job in his first term of office as a Citrus County School Board member. He worked hard to learn the issues by going into the schools and talking to parents. He started a blog to engage the public which has been very well received. He spends immense time learning his job and does due diligence prior to board meetings so that he can make informed decisions. He exerts a great deal of effort advocating for our district and our children with our state officials in Tallahassee. He has been very proactive in finding reasonable areas to cut back in the school districts budget while still maintaining a highquality education for all our children. Thomas is honest and hardworking. His own children are students in our public schools which proves his true commitment to public education. He has particular sensitivity to exceptional education students as well. Rarely have I seen a school board member give so much of himself in order to serve all of our children. I support Thomas Kennedy wholeheartedly in his re-election bid for Citrus County School Board, District 1.Kathy Thrumston Floral CityVote McPheeters for BOCC District 2There is a wonderful lady named Renee ChristopherMcPheeters who is a candidate for Citrus County Commissioner District 2, who I will soon be voting for. This is an S.O.S. call to save Citrus County and vote for Renee to be elected commissioner. She will look out for us taxpayers.Don Storm Nina Farewell Crystal RiverVote Mulrain in BOCC District 2 raceWe believe Mr. Phillip Mulrain is the person to bring a new direction to the county commission, District 2, based on his longstanding residency in the county, his wide personal experience and his integrity. We have been personally acquainted with Mr. Mulrain a number of years, and know him to be a person willing to help and offer assistance both to neighbors and friends. We believe this would be reflected in his service on the commission as a commissioner who would remain in touch with the citizens of his district as well as the county as a whole. Mr. Mulrain has wideranging personal and business experience which we feel would provide a fresh perspective to the commission based on what is in the best interests of the citizens and the county.James E. Marcum Sandra E. Marcum Crystal River Even if it accomplishes nothing else, calling Vladimir Putin nasty names makes us feel a little better. Thug, megalomaniac, liar, war criminal, mass murderer those are just the printable ones. If only the Russian president cared what the rest of the world says (or thinks) about him. He doesnt, and why should he? Among global leaders, only President Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron and Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott have expressed anything that resembles outrage over the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 by pro-Russian rebels in Ukraine. Even in the Netherlands, which lost more than 150 citizens on that plane, the government continues referring to the missile strike as an aviation disaster instead of the reckless massacre it was. All across Europe, the politicians in power have stated their obligatory shock and dismay, but theres scant enthusiasm for enacting the sort of economic sanctions against Moscow that the United States initiated months ago. Foreign ministers who gathered last week in Brussels composed a wish list of prominent Russian individuals and companies for possible trade and banking restrictions, yet no action was taken. At this point its clear that the missile system used against the Malaysian aircraft was supplied by Russia, and that those who fired it were if not Russians themselves trained and coached by experts from that country. Intercepted communications from the self-proclaimed separatists suggest that the shootdown was a horrible screw-up, that the yahoos who had control of the missile launcher believed they were shooting at a Ukrainian military aircraft. That doesnt mean Putins hands are blood-free. But instead of apologizing to the families for Russias role in the tragedy, he continues to blame the Ukraine military and refuses to concede that the antiaircraft missile was one of his. Lies and disinformation are exactly what youd expect from an ex-KGB guy. Whats surprising is the limp response on the European continent, where its all about money and oil. Putin literally has much of the Western leadership over a barrel. Russian investors now own such a large chunk of London that Great Britain is, despite Camerons condemnation of the missile attack, unlikely to make any serious moves against the Putin government. Meanwhile, across the English Channel, France is moving briskly on schedule to complete construction of two helicopterbearing ships for the Russian military, and says the downing of Flight 17 will not delay (or make it reconsider) the delivery. The Russians have paid (for the ships), said President Francois Hollande, which was basically a shrug. Halting arms sales to the Kremlin would result in the loss of jobs at French weapons factories and damage the national economy, officials there said. Other countries fear that Russia would respond to sanctions by cutting their supplies of gas and oil, as is happening in Ukraine. The mood of morose resignation is most stark in Amsterdam, even as the bodies of the Flight 17 victims are finally being sent home. In recent years the Dutch have watched their trade with Russia grow rapidly, and both countries have billions of dollars at play in the other. Shell, the international energy giant, headquarters in the Netherlands and, according to the New York Times, is one of the biggest foreign stakeholders in the natural gas fields of Siberia. Penalties for trading with Russia could hurt not only Shell but many Dutch citizens whose pensions are heavy with the companys stock. Because of its enormous influence upon the Dutch government, no official denunciation of Russia is expected there. Back in the United States, polls in the aftermath of the airline tragedy show most Americans strongly disapprove of Obamas handling of foreign crises. Yet an even larger majority opposes increased U.S. involvement in Ukraine, Iraq or anywhere else. What people in this country seem to want most from the president is more emotion and tougher talk. While everybodys rightly infuriated that 298 souls were lost because Putin gave missiles to a bunch of goons, nobody sane believes war is the answer. Twisting the economic screws would definitely grab the Kremlins attention if our major allies agreed to sanctions, but right now the United States stands essentially alone. Obama could crack down more, but just wait until the blowback hits U.S. firms heavily invested in Russia. So, in the absence of an easy answer, we fulminate: Putin is a thug. Putin is a coward. Putin is whatever. And, after all is said, hes still there.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald. Readers may write to him at: 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132.

Its also something we see every 10 years, following the Census, when state and federal voting district boundaries are reassessed based on changing population patterns. This time, though, the group in power in Florida went too far and they got called on it. The League of Women Voters led a group in a 2012 lawsuit charging that the Florida Legislatures redistricting map illegally favored the Republican Party. The fight finally landed before Leon County Circuit Court Judge Terry Lewis, who about a month ago found Floridas congressional redistricting map to be unconstitutional and ordered that it be redrawn. As we go to press, legislators are in special session in Tallahassee to work out a new one. Several things are noteworthy. First, with passage of the Fair Districts amendments to the Florida Constitution in 2010, voters sent a clear message that this kind of political skullduggery is unacceptable. The amendments forbid drawing a plan with the intent to favor or disfavor a political party or incumbent. Also, districts are to be compact and where feasible use existing political and geographical boundaries. Judge Lewis said this case is of the highest importance, going as it does, to the very foundation of our representative democracy. He found that a group of Republican political consultants or operatives did in fact conspire to manipulate and influence the redistricting process. They made a mockery of the Legislatures proclaimed transparent and open process of redistricting He also said that they managed to taint the redistricting process and the resulting map with improper partisan intent. Sharp words, indeed. His opinion goes on to note that legislators and political operatives systematically deleted almost all of their emails and other documentation related to redistricting. There was no legal duty on the part of the Legislature to preserve these records, Judge Lewis wrote, but you have to wonder why they didnt. Litigation over their plans was a moral certainty, as their lawyers put it earlier in the case There was more in the judges opinion, touching on non-public meetings and blind-copy emails involving political consultants. The bottom line, though, is that the process didnt pass the ultimate smell test. Kudos to those who persevered with this lawsuit. While taxpayers are having to pay legal fees during the two years of the case, plus now a special session, we win in the long run. Voters made a fair redistricting law, and those who try to subvert it must be held accountable. THE ISSUE:Judge orders states congressional map to be redrawn.OUR OPINION:Hold legislators accountable for actions that dont pass the smell test. OPINIONS INVITED SEND LETTERS TO: The Editor, 1624 N.

Todays paper, Friday, Aug. 1, has said an animal shelter will be built near Lecanto Detention Center in order to allow inmates to train dogs as service animals and increase the rate for prisoners from $5.25 to $74.28 per month. Prisoners are allowed to train animals, yet a felon is not accepted as a volunteer at the existing animal shelter Makes me wonder at the wisdom of the higher-ups. An inmate is allowed, yet someone who served their time and did their thing but is considered a felon is not allowed for life to vote in Florida and yet they allow inmates to train animals for service animals. What is the wisdom here?Editors note: Two clarifications: The CCA is offering to build the animal shelter near the detention center, but a deal has not yet been struck. The CCA is expected to make a presentation at the commission meeting on Aug. 12. Convicted felons can have their voting rights restored in Florida. They must wait a prescribed amount of time and then apply for restoration to the clemency board. Refocus effortsNow that Mr. Strange has become the target of a backlash of angry voters who are now questioning his ethics and reputation, I hope he has a better understanding of the anguish he has caused the victims of his political character assassinations. It is, however, time for everyone to move on. Candidates, voters and Mr. Strange need to refocus on the crucial task at hand: choosing the most effective leadership to oversee the future prosperity of Citrus County. That way we all win.

Surfs up Associated PressTwo surfers head for the waves Friday in Honolulu. High surf was expected in some spots on Oahu due to Tropical Storm Iselle. Iselle came ashore early Friday as a weakened tropical storm, while Hurricane Julio, close behind it, strengthened and is forecasted to pass north of the islands. Ban is sought on helicopter toursHOBOKEN, N.J. Tourists who want a birdseye view of the New York City skyline might be out of luck. U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey joined local officials from both sides of the Hudson River in Hoboken on Friday to call for a ban on tourist helicopter flights. Interrupted repeatedly by the buzzing sounds of helicopters, officials said the flights are a threat to the quality of life and public safety of waterfront residents. Theres simply too much helicopter traffic and not enough oversight, said Menendez, who said the volume of flights has skyrocketed it recent years. A sightseeing helicopter and a small aircraft collided over the river in 2009, killing nine people. Another crash in 2011 killed an Australian tourist.NASA Mars test called success LOS ANGELES NASA engineers say an experimental flying device successfully mimicked the conditions of landing in Mars atmosphere, clearing the way for future tests with the device. At a news conference Friday, the engineers laid out what theyve learned in the six weeks since the $150 million test, which involved sending a saucershaped craft to 190,000 feet above the Earths surface. The high altitude simulates the low-density atmosphere around Mars. Principal investigator Ian Clark says two breakthrough technologies that were tested on the experimental flight showed promise, despite one of the technologies, a parachute, disintegrating the moment it deployed.Reagan aides death a homicideWASHINGTON A spokeswoman said a Virginia medical examiner has notified police that this weeks death of former White House press secretary James Brady has been ruled a homicide. Brady was shot in the head during the 1981 assassination attempt by John Hinckley Jr. of President Ronald Reagan. Brady lived through hours of surgery and further operations over the years, but he never regained normal use of his limbs. His family said he died Monday from a series of health issues.

UN to world: Help stop Ebola LONDON The World Health Organization urged nations worldwide to donate money and resources to stop the spread of Ebola as it declared the outbreak in West Africa to be an international public health emergency. The latest Ebola outbreak is the largest and longest ever recorded for the disease, which has a death rate of about 50 percent and has so far killed at least 961 people, according to the U.N. health agency. It emerged in Guinea in March and has since spread to Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria. Countries affected to date simply do not have the capacity to manage an outbreak of this size and complexity on their own, WHO chief Dr. Margaret Chan told a news conference Friday in Geneva. I urge the international community to provide this support on the most urgent basis possible. She added that the worlds collective health security depends on curbing the spread of the killer virus in West Africa, even as she acknowledged that many countries would probably not have any Ebola cases.Ukrainian rebels tap new leaderDONETSK, Ukraine A Ukrainian has replaced a Russian at the helm of the insurgency in eastern Ukraine and declared that he wants only moral support from Moscow, as the Kremlin apparently tries to rebut Western claims that it is calling the shots among the rebels. Many in the rebel ranks decry what they call Russias betrayal of their cause, but most vow to keep on fighting even as Ukrainian government troops close in on the main rebel stronghold, the eastern city of Donetsk. In an ominous sign that the fighting may escalate further, the new leader of the insurgency has boasted of hundreds of new recruits and said a lot of rocket launchers and tanks have been seized from a Ukrainian unit. Alexander Zakhar chen ko, a native of mostly Russian-speaking eastern Ukraine, took over late Thursday as prime minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk Peoples Republic, which has declared independence from the central government in Kiev. He succeeded Alexander Borodai, a Moscow political consultant who reportedly played a role in Russias annexation of Crimea in March before moving into eastern Ukraine. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressDES MOINES, Iowa A mild summer across much of the nations heartland has provided optimum growing conditions for the nations corn and soybean crops. Pair that with high-yield seeds and other new farming technologies, and the U.S. is looking at busting records come harvest time. The U.S. Department of Agriculture already has predicted a record soybean crop of 3.8 billion bushels. And the corn crop, it said in July, would be large but not bigger than last years record of 13.9 billion bushels. However, many market analysts and some farmers expect the USDA to revise expectations upward in a report based on field surveys thats due out Tuesday. Conditions look just fantastic across most of the country, Texas A&M University grain marketing economist Mark Welch said. In a typical growing season, at least some corn-growing states would have experienced drought or other production problems. But the 18 states that grow 91 percent of the nations corn have experienced nearly ideal conditions this year, as adequate rain fell when plants emerged and cooler summer temperatures minimized heat stress. Thats the case in Illinois, one of the nations top corn and soybean states. Illinois has largely been dealt to date pretty close to a royal flush on weather and Im sure that the yields are going to be very high here, said Scott Irwin, a University of Illinois professor of agricultural and consumer economics. The expected large harvest has driven corn and soybean prices significantly lower, but it isnt expected to make much of a shorttime difference in consumer food prices. However, since the grains are staples in livestock feed, lower prices could eventually lead to a decline in the cost of beef, pork, chicken and milk. Eventually, the economics will feed through, but I wouldnt expect much relief in 2015 yet. It just takes time to go through the systems, Irwin said. Weather doesnt deserve all the credit for the amount of grain farmers are getting from each acre this year. Agriculture companies have developed genetic characteristics in seeds that allow plants to be packed more densely per acre and arm them with resistance to drought, disease and pests. In addition, larger planters and tractors equipped with GPS programs can run at night if needed, helping farmers adjust planting when weather delays field work. When conditions are right, we have the ability to get in and get that crop established so much more quickly than we could in the past ... Welch said. Were just creating an environment that when the weather cooperates were capturing more of the potential and the possibilities genetically that are within that corn plant. During the lifetime of the average U.S. farmer, whos 58, corn yields have more than tripled from a national average of 44 bushels per acre in the 1950s to nearly 150 bushels per acre in recent years. Mainstream GOP upbeat Associated PressWASHINGTON Mainstream conservatives ran the table in Senate Republican primaries as tea party upstarts lost all six challenges to GOP incumbents, leaving the establishment upbeat about midterm elections and the insurgent movement beaten but unbowed. Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexanders narrow win Thursday night and Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts triumph on Tuesday dashed the tea partys last hopes of knocking out a sitting senator. Earlier this year, incumbents prevailed in Texas, Kentucky, South Carolina and Mississippi for a party intent on nominating viable candidates and winning Senate control in Novembers contests. Republicans need to net six seats for the majority. Democrats currently hold a 55-45 advantage. The last two cycles we nominated some people who were not the best candidates for the general election, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told reporters during a campaign stop in Hindman, Kentucky. In 2014, Im hard-pressed to think of a single state where we dont have the best nominee possible in order to do what this is all about, which is to actually get elected and make policy. We had a good cycle so far; it doesnt guarantee the outcome, he said. Republicans blame tea partyers and flawed candidates for squandering the partys shot at Senate control in 2010 and 2012, especially in Delaware, Nevada, Colorado, Missouri and Indiana. Months ago, McConnell vowed to crush tea party candidates, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee invested money, staff and time, including more than 40,000 phone calls in Kansas in the final three weeks of the campaign. Tea partyers and other outside groups acknowledged the beat down. If you kind of look at this like a baseball game, you guys totally struck out, done, youre gone, said Daniel Horowitz, a strategist who formerly worked with the Madison Project, one of several conservative groups that have spent money against GOP incumbents. Israel-Hamas truce collapses Associated PressJERUSALEM A three-day-old truce collapsed Friday in a new round of violence after Gaza militants resumed rocket attacks on Israel, drawing a wave of retaliatory airstrikes that killed at least five Palestinians, including three children. The eruption of fighting shattered a brief calm in the monthlong war and dealt a blow to Egyptianled efforts to secure a longterm cease-fire between the bitter enemies. A delegation of Palestinian negotiators remained in Cairo in hopes of salvaging the talks. But participants said the negotiations were not going well, and Israel said it would not negotiate under fire. The Palestinian delegation met again late Friday with Egyptian mediators. Azzam al-Ahmad, head of the Palestinian delegation, said the delegation would stay in Egypt until it reaches an agreement that ensures the rights of the Palestinian people. We told Egyptians we are staying, he told reporters. The indirect talks are meant to bring an end to the deadliest round of fighting between Israel and Hamas since the Islamic militant group seized control of Gaza in 2007. In four weeks of violence, more than 1,900 Gazans have been killed, roughly three-quarters of them civilians, according to Palestinian and U.N. officials. Sixty-seven people were killed on the Israeli side, including three civilians. The Palestinians are seeking an end to an Israel-Egyptian blockade imposed on Gaza after the Hamas takeover. The blockade, which Israel says is needed to prevent arms smuggling, has restricted movement in and out of the territory of 1.8 million people and brought Gazas economy to a standstill. Israel says any long-term agreement must include guarantees that Hamas, an armed group sworn to Israels destruction, will give up its weapons. In Cairo, Palestinian participants in the talks were pessimistic about the chances of a deal. They said Israel was opposing every Palestinian proposal for lifting the blockade. For instance, the Palestinians are seeking greater movement of goods through Israeli-controlled cargo crossings, while Israel wants restrictions on dual-use items that could potentially be used for military purposes, they said.

Desmond Jennings went 2 for 5 with a homer and Ben Zobrist went 3 for 5 as Tampa Bay won its second straight. Brad Boxberger (3-1) blew the save in the ninth, but pitched a perfect 10th to get the win. Hector Rondon (3-4) took the loss. Jennings started the game-winning rally with a one-out single and advanced to third when Zobrist singled. Kiermaier, who went 1 for 2, singled to center to score Jennings and break the 3-3 tie. In his Wrigley Field debut, touted Cubs prospect Javier Baez went 1 for 5 with a run scored and four strikeouts. Cubs starter Tsuyoshi Wada allowed two runs and four hits in six-plus innings, while Rays starter Chris Archer allowed two runs (one earned) and five hits in six innings. The Cubs took a 1-0 lead in the first when Starlin Castro singled to drive in Baez. Tampa Bay tied it on Jennings leadoff homer in the third. John Baker singled in a run in the fourth for a 2-1 Cubs lead. Following Jennings homer, Wada retired 12 straight batters before first baseman Sean Rodriguez led off the seventh with a triple down the right-field line. Manager Rick Renteria brought in right-hander Brian Schlitter to face Yunel Escobar. Associated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. Rory McIlroy is making this PGA Championship feel like 2000 all over again at Valhalla. Back then, it was Tiger Woods who was making the game look easy as he started to pile up majors. Now its McIlroy, the 25-year-old from Northern Ireland who produced superior shots with his long game and made all the right putts Friday for a 4-under 67 that gave him a one-shot lead over Jason Day and Jim Furyk. When Im playing like this, its obviously very enjoyable, McIlroy said. I cant wait to get back out on the course again tomorrow and do the same thing all over again. For Woods, such feelings are becoming distant memories. He missed two short putts early one for birdie, one for bogey and looked as if he should never have tried to play the final major of the year with a sore back. Two birdies on his last three holes only kept it from being worse. Woods shot another 74 and missed the cut in a major for the fourth time. I tried as hard as I could, Woods said. Thats about all I got. Oddly enough, McIlroy opened with the exact same scores (66-67) as Woods did 14 years ago at Valhalla, when he barely outlasted Bob May in a playoff for his third straight major of the season on his way to an unprecedented sweep of golfs biggest events. McIlroy, who was at 9-under 133, isnt nearly at that stage. And his competition going into the weekend is a little more experienced. Furyk, a former U.S. Open champion who was runner-up last year at the PGA, got upand-down from behind the green on the par-5 18th for birdie and a 68. Moments earlier, Day capped off the best round of a soggy day with a birdie on the 18th for a 65. Day has three runner-up finishes in the majors. Right behind were Ryan Palmer (70) and Rickie Fowler (66), a runner-up in the last two majors.

The third overall pick in this years draft completed 7 of 11 passes, including a 31-yarder down the middle of the field to Mike Brown to set up a 26-yard field goal that gave the Jaguars a 10-3 lead late in the third quarter. The Bucs were penalized for a late hit on the rookie from Central Florida, tacking on another 15 yards. Tampa Bay drove 85 yards to make it 10-10 on Mike Glennons 6-yard scoring pass to Tommy Streeter, but dropped its first game under coach Lovie Smith when a defense that had done a good job of keeping Jacksonvilles offense out of the end zone faltered in the fourth quarter. Denard Robinsons 23-yard TD run put the Jaguars ahead for good with under seven minutes remaining. Jacksonville also scored on Winston Guy Jr.s 68-yard interception return in the first quarter.

Detroit trailed 4-2 entering the ninth against Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen. J.D. Martinez started the inning with a double. After an out, Castellanos homered on the first pitch. Two pitches later, Suarez gave the Tigers their first lead with a drive to center. Janssen (3-1) was replaced by Aaron Loup after a two-out double by Ian Kinsler. The blown save was Janssens third in 21 chances. Al Alburquerque (3-1) worked 1 2/3 innings for the win and Joe Nathan finished for his 24th save in 29 chances, getting Josh Thole to foul out with the bases loaded.Yankees 10, Indians 6NEW YORK Carlos Beltran hit a grand slam and drove in five runs as the New York Yankees broke out to support improbable fill-in starter Esmil Rogers and beat the sloppy Cleveland Indians 10-6 night for their sixth win in seven games. Derek Jeter tied Honus Wagner with his 3,430th hit in a five-run first inning against Trevor Bauer (4-7) and Beltrans 11th career slam highlighted a five-run sixth. The Indians, who have the majors worst fielding percentage, prolonged both innings with errors in their fourth straight loss overall and seventh in a row in the Bronx. The Yankees walked seven times in moving seven games above .500 (61-54) for the first time this season. Picked up off waivers on July 31 after the Toronto Blue Jays cut him for the second time this season, Rogers (2-0) became the 12th player to make a start for New York. Pitching in place of David Phelps (elbow inflammation), he allowed one run and four hits over five innings in his first start since Sept. 25 for Toronto and threw 88 pitches 45 was his high this season coming in.NATIONAL LEAGUE Marlins 2, Reds 1CINCINNATI Nathan Eovaldi gave his second straight shutdown performance, holding Cincinnati to five hits over eight shutout innings, and Giancarlo Stanton hit his NL-leading 28th homer, powering the Miami Marlins to a 2-1 victory. The Reds fell to 8-13 since the All-Star break, a slide that has them stranded in fourth place in the NL Central. Eovaldi (6-6) got his first victory since June 23, ending a streak of three losses and four no-decisions. He was coming off what was his best performance of the second half of the season seven innings of one-run ball in a 2-1 win over the Reds last Saturday. He didnt get the decision in that one.Pirates 2, Padres 1PITTSBURGH Pittsburghs Gregory Polanco and Josh Harrison had three hits each and Vance Worley outdueled Ian Kennedy as the Pirates beat the San Diego Padres 2-1. The win moved the Pirates (62-53) a season-high nine games over .500. Worley (5-1) struck a season-high seven in seven innings and gave up one run, five hits and a walk. Kennedy (8-10) was pulled after six innings and allowed two runs one earned and seven hits he walked three and struck out five. Tony Watson preserved the one-run lead with a perfect eighth and Mark Melancon picked up his career-high 21st save by striking out the side in the ninth. San Diego scored in the first on Everth Cabreras leadoff double, a sacrifice and Seth Smiths sacrifice fly. Pittsburgh scored twice in the bottom of the inning. Harrison led off with a triple and scored on Polancos single. Polanco later scored on Russell Martins sacrifice fly. Pittsburgh loaded the bases with no outs in the third and San Diego did the same in the sixth.INTERLEAGUE Orioles 12, Cardinals 2BALTIMORE J.J. Hardy hit two of Baltimores season-high six home runs, and the Orioles cruised past the St. Louis Cardinals 12-2 to move a season-high 17 games over .500. On a night in which the team wore 1954 throwback uniforms to mark the 60th anniversary of its arrival in Baltimore, the Orioles administered an old fashioned whipping on the Cardinals, a franchise they shared a stadium with decades ago. Hardy hit a solo shot and a threerun drive for his 11th multihomer game. Manny Machado, Adam Jones, Chris Davis and Ryan Flaherty also connected as Baltimore (66-49) reached double figures in runs for the first time since April 24. Chris Tillman (9-5) gave up two runs and four hits in 6 2/3 innings.Royals 4, Giants 2KANSAS CITY, Mo. Billy Butler homered and drove in three runs and right fielder Nori Aoki threw out to runners in the same innings as the Kansas City Royals beat the San Francisco Giants 4-2 for their fifth straight victory. The Royals, who have not been in the playoffs since winning the 1985 World Series, hold a half game lead for the second AL wild card. Butler, who is hitting .423 in the past seven games, homered with two out in the first off Madison Burgarner (139). Butler singled home the go-ahead run in the two-run sixth, which was aided by throwing errors on Giants infielders Michael Morse and Matt Duffy. Alex Gordon had an RBI single. The Giants scored twice in the third on Joaquin Arias double and Matt Duffys single. Aoki prevented a bigger inning, throwing out Hunter Pence at third and Arias at home. The Giants out hit the Royals 12-7, but self-destructed with three errors and base running blunders. Bumgarner went the distance, allowing four runs on seven hits, while walking none and striking out five. His road scoreless streak was snapped at 17 innings.

Catcher Curt Casali, the next hitter, grounded out to shortstop, but this time Rodriguez broke for the plate and just beat the throw from Castro to tie the score. The Rays took a 3-2 lead in the eighth on a two-out pinch-hit by Matt Joyce, but the Cubs tied in the ninth when Ryan Sweeney singled to drive in Justin Ruggiano from second base with one out. TRAINERS ROOM Rays: Outfielder Wil Myers (fractured right hand) is expected to begin a minor league rehab stint this weekend. He has missed 60 games through Friday with the injury. Cubs: Right-hander Neil Ramirez (triceps soreness) is eligible to be activated from the 15-day disabled list on Sunday. ON DECK Rays right-hander Jake Odorizzi (7-9, 4.09) takes on Edwin Jackson (6-11, 5.66) in the second game of the series on Saturday. RAYSContinued from Page B1 Even so, McIlroy is dangerous when he gets in the lead, especially at a major. He learned his lesson at Augusta National in 2011 when he tried to protect a four-shot lead and wound up shooting 80. He bounced back for an eight-shot win at the U.S. Open, won the PGA Championship by a record eight shots a year later and only last month went wire-to-wire to win the third leg of the career Grand Slam at the British Open. My mindset has stayed the same since that day at Augusta, McIlroy said. If Im two ahead going into the weekend here, Im going to try to get three ahead. And if Im three ahead, Im going to try to get four ahead. ... Im just going to try to keep the pedal down and get as many ahead as possible. He didnt take his first lead until the par-5 18th hole, the midway point of his round. McIlroy blasted his driver and couldnt quite see where it went against a cloudy sky. Is it good? he asked caddie. Beautiful, was all J.P. Fitzgerald said. McIlroy hit 4-iron to the front of the green, and his eagle putt rammed into the back of the cup as if it had nowhere else to go. It was a moment where the No. 1 player in the world looked as if he had just seized control of the PGA Championship. Except it wasnt that easy. In sloppy conditions, McIlroy took bogey on the tough par-4 second hole, and then had to scramble for four straight pars. But on the par-5 seventh, after another big tee shot on the left side of the fairway, he hit a 5-wood over the water to 8 feet, a shot that reminded everyone why hes the class of golf. That was one of the few putts he missed he still made birdie and McIlroy finished with a 15-foot birdie on the final hole. When he hits the driver that straight and that long, and the short game is incredible, its very difficult to beat him, U.S. Open champion Martin Kaymer said. His iron shots, they are very solid. He doesnt miss many golf shots. So you just have to respect it a lot, how good he plays. Theres nothing wrong with his game. Fowler saw it during the final round at Royal Liverpool last month. He knows what kind of work is left for the guys chasing him. It can be done. But they might need some help from McIlroy. Hes the best player in the world right now, Fowler said. And I would say a lot of that is his confidence right now with the way hes driving the ball. If he continues to drive it, hes going to continue to be in contention at a lot of golf tournaments and win a lot of times. Maybe. But the final major is only at the halfway mark. Day has been battling injuries to his wrist ever since winning the Match Play Championship, and he was pleasantly surprised to be in the hunt at another major. He is explosive, much like McIlroy, minus the experience of winning. The Australian showed that on the final holes with a wedge to 6 feet on the 450-yard 17th hole, and a nifty up-and-down over a bunker on the 18th. Im clearly not the favorite, Day said. Its going to be tough to beat him. But then again, theres a lot of great golfers behind us that are in form, as well. Woods had a one-shot lead over Scott Dunlap going into the weekend at Valhalla in 2000. Of the dozen players behind him that year, only Davis Love III had won a major. This leaderboard is more compelling. It even includes Phil Mickelson, who made eagle on the last hole for a 67 and was three shots behind. It just doesnt include Woods, who ended a sixth consecutive season without winning a major. And lately, he hasnt even been close. PGAContinued from Page B1 Verdict in Pistorius trial scheduled for Sept. 11PRETORIA, South Africa The judge in the murder trial of Oscar Pistorius says she will give a verdict on Sept. 11. Judge Thokozile Masipa made the announcement on Friday after the prosecution and the defense ended final arguments in the murder case against the double-amputee, who shot dead girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentines Day last year. Pistorius said he mistakenly shot Steenkamp, thinking there was intruder in his home. The prosecution alleges the Olympic runner intentionally killed her after an argument.From wire reports Chad Henne started for the Jaguars and played four series before being replaced by Bortles, who has yet to take a snap with Jacksonvilles firstteam offense in training camp. The rookie received a nice ovation from the announced crowd of 59,100 at EverBank Field before completing his first pass for 24 yards to Allen Hurns. Two plays later, he rolled out of the pocket to his left and showed he has a sense of when he needs to take a little off his throws with a nice flip to fullback Will Taufoou for a 12-yard gain. Smith and first-year general manager Jason Licht spent in free agency to bring in four new starters for Tampa Bays defense and also rebuild an offensive line that did not protect McCown well Friday night. The 35-year-old quarterback, a career backup who began training camp as a projected starter for the time in a decade, was hurried into a couple of bad throws and also took a hard hit at the end of a 9-yard scramble. Henne, meanwhile, completed 4 of 7 for 30 yards. The Jaguars hurt themselves with a pair of bad snaps that sailed over the quarterbacks head in shotgun formation. The second one rolled 21 yards on fourth down, helping set up the 44-yard field goal for Tampa Bays first points of the game. McCown finished 2 of 4 for 20 yards with one interception. He rushed for 13 yards on two carries. The Jaguars played without starting running back Toby Gerhart and receivers Cecil Shorts III and Allen Robinson. Safety Dashon Goldson and cornerback Alterraun Verner, one of Tampa Bays key offseason acquisitions, did not dress for the Bucs.Falcons 16, Dolphins 10ATLANTA Miamis Ryan Tannehill and Atlantas Matt Ryan produced touchdowns on their only possessions, Sean Renfree led two field-goal drives in the second half and the Falcons held off the Dolphins 16-10 in the preseason opener for both teams. Rookie quarterback Seth Lobato led Miami to the Atlanta 5-yard line with less than 3 minutes remaining before fumbling a shotgun snap. Defensive end Nosa Eguae recovered for Atlanta. The only touchdowns of the game came on each teams first drive as the starting quarterbacks looked sharp. Tannehill was 6 for 6 for 62 yards, including a 6-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Gibson, to open the game. Ryan was just as strong, completing each of his seven attempts for 53 yards on Atlantas opening drive. Jacquizz Rodgers capped the drive with a 2-yard scoring run.Bills 20, Panthers 18CHARLOTTE, N.C. Anthony Dixon ran for a touchdown, Dan Carpenter had a pair of field goals and the Buffalo Bills defeated the Carolina Panthers 20-18 in a preseason game. EJ Manuel completed 9 of 13 passes for 96 yards but the Bills struggled to cash in on scoring opportunities for the second straight game. Buffalos first-team offense reached Carolina territory on its first three possessions but managed just three points. Rookie Kelvin Benjamin had no such problem finding the end zone. Carolinas first-round draft pick turned in the play of the game, thrilling fans with a stumbling, diving 32-yard touchdown reception in his NFL debut. Racing down the left sideline, Benjamin stumbled after contact with cornerback Stephon Gilmore but maintained his balance long enough to haul in a diving catch in the end zone from Derek Anderson. Anderson started for Cam Newton, who rested his recovering left ankle.Vikings 10, Raiders 6MINNEAPOLIS Matt Cassel led a crisp touchdown drive with Minnesotas first team offense, and the Vikings broke in their temporary new home stadium by beating the Oakland Raiders 10-6 in the exhibition opener. Teddy Bridgewater relieved Cassel at quarterback after two series, and the rookies first name was rhythmically chanted during his first two snaps by a crowd eager to see the first-round draft pick in action. Playing into the third quarter, Bridgewaters debut was mixed at best: 6 for 13 for 49 yards, two sacks and one fumble the Vikings recovered. Matt Schaubs first time in silver and black wasnt exactly smooth, either. The latest attempt by the Raiders to stop the quarterback carousel from spinning, Schaub finished 3 for 7 for 21 yards.

As meager car counts plagued local Legends Car events, the 19-yearold five-time go-kart champion from Mulberry found himself taking a break from racing over the past few months. Opportunity called, however, when promoters Kevin Williams and Brandon Thompson, in collaboration with the Citrus County, Auburndale, Showtime and Bronson Speedways, assembled the 2014 Sunshine State Legends/Bandoleros Touring Series. It kicked off its schedule with a 35-lapper in Inverness last Saturday. Adams proved he was ready, as he captured the feature win in wireto-wire fashion against a 13-car field, the most crowded the division has seen in at least two years at Citrus. It was our first race in four or five months, so it had been awhile, he said. We were doing real well before the break, but we struggled in practice. We threw some springs at it, threw some set up at it, and I guess you could say we got lucky. Unsurprisingly, Adams is eager to continue the series. Kevin (Williams) and Brandon (Thompson) shot my dad (Kevin Adams) an email and asked if I wanted to run the series. I said, Yeah, thatd be cool. Im in. Hopefully, it gets even better. Two or three years ago, we had 24 to 25 cars at every race. Car count is the biggest thing. Well probably be doing this pretty normal, so well probably be here about every time. The body shells on most Legends cars are 5/8-scale replicas of 1930s Ford coupes and sedans, and also include Dodge and Chevrolet models from the era. Adams black No. 5, with orange lettering, is a 1934 Ford coupe. Theyre powered by motorcycle engines. Legends racing emerged in the early 1990s as a costand maintenance-friendly alternative, largely resembling the prior existing Dwarf cars, but with added fenders over the tires. The uniform spec requirements and relative affordability help guarantee strong parity in the class, leaving it up to the drivers and lady luck to mostly determine the outcomes. The difficulty level helps enforce disciplined driving and superior car control, making it an effective gateway class to other levels of racing. Reed Sorenson, David Ragan, Joey Logano, and brothers Kyle and Kurt Busch are among current NASCAR drivers whove spent time in Legends racing. It took me about a year to get it down, Adams said. Theyre one of the hardest cars to drive. You can only do so much with the set up. Its all about how you drive it, hitting your marks every time. If you get good at a Legend, you can pretty much drive anything. Adams started racing go-karts at age 5, and continued until he was 14, winning multiple championships, including a couple in back-to-back seasons, in the World Karting Association and at the state level. Before Adams began racing, His uncle Jason Bennett raced in the Super Late Model class, and his father Kevin owned a couple go-karts. Adams was inspired to try out the Legends after watching them race at Auburndale Speedway. The backto-back championships were my proudest moments in racing, he said. Were going to see how this year goes, and hopefully we can add another highlight. Adams gets sponsorship support from Auto Tech Collision Center in Lakeland, Exclusive Creation Graphics, and L.J. Designs, which designed his teams T-shirts. He and his father are mostly involved in the maintenance of his racecar, and he also gets help from his mother, Christie, Wayne Morris, and Morris son Brandon Morris, who is best friends with Adams. Wayne Morris has won over 250 features as a racecar driver, and is crew chief for Brandon, a rising star in stock-car racing in the area. Adams has known Brandon since he was 5 years old, and the two attended Mulberry High School together. Both are trying to become sheriffs deputies in Polk County. Like Adams, Morris also started in go-karts at 5 years old, and is currently racing in the Sportsman class, where he claimed the Florida United Promoters Series title in 2013. On Twin Day (at MHS), Brandon and I wore our driving suits to school, Adams said. Everybody at school knew we were best friends, like brothers. Im at their house about every night. Brandons getting a Late Model, so Im going to be helping him out on that. Wayne Morris helps us out a lot on the car, he added. In a sport full of controversies and heated moments, Adams says he tries to stay eventempered. Thats my least favorite part of racing, just getting into it with people, he said. Im not the confrontational type. I hate controversy and I hate getting into it with people. Some people are like that, but Ive never been that kind of person. Ive lost my temper before everybody has. But after everything happens, when you settle down, thats when you think about it. Ill talk to those people in the aftermath, and apologize for what I said.

RELIGION BRIEFS Special to ChronicleBUENOS AIRES, Argentina An annual pilgrimage to a Roman Catholic shrine to the patron saint of work in Argentina drew thousands of people Thursday amid uncertain economic times in the country. The line of faithful to attend Mass and give thanks at the Church of San Cayetano in the capital Buenos Aires stretched for several blocks. Saint Cayetano, an Italian priest who died in the 16th century, is revered as the patron saint of wheat, prosperity and labor, and his name day resonates in a country that has undergone economic turmoil in recent years, most recently a default forced by a legal dispute with U.S. investors. Known in English as St. Cajetan, San Cayetano died in Naples in 1547. Among his works was the founding of a bank to help the poor and offer an alternative to loan sharks. When we have been going through complicated situations with a lot of economic adjustment ... God and the saint gives refuge to the people, offers them hope, said Jorge Torres, a priest in the parish. Many of the thousands of people visiting the shrine clutched stalks of wheat or carried pictures of Pope Francis, who is from Argentina and has presided over Mass on San Cayetano Day in the past. People use the occasion to pray for a good job for themselves or a family member or to give thanks for one. Argentina is in recession and has one of the worlds highest rates of inflation. Analysts have warned that the default triggered July 30 by the dispute with U.S. investors could further hurt the economy, among the largest in Latin America. Associated PressPeople attend Mass on Aug. 7 outside the San Cayetano Church in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Pilgrims flock to show their dedication to the saint widely known as San Ca the patron saint of labor and ask for three things in particular: bread, work and peace. Argentina Catholics celebrate patron saint of labor One night several weeks ago, my husband said good night, ran into the bedroom and locked the door something hes done dozens of times, always in a playful, good-natured way, always unlocking it within seconds. I usually laugh, except when I dont, like that one night several weeks ago. That night, for whatever reason, I decided to be Greatly Offended. Even though Barry had unlocked the door seconds after he locked it, as he always does, I didnt stick around long enough to open it. Instead, I grabbed a throw blanket and stomped into the spare room and prepared to sleep on the loveseat, which is not meant to be slept on by an adult, even a pint-size one like me. But because I was Greatly Offended, I was prepared to Suffer Greatly as we martyrs do. I didnt have my squishy feather pillow, only a hard throw pillow, causing my neck to crink. Plus, my legs, as short as they are, hung over the arms of the loveseat, causing bad words to form inside my heart. I also couldnt get to sleep. My mind wouldnt shut off because it was too busy multiplying my woeful woefulness. I couldve made a more comfortable bed on the couch in the living room, but that wouldve detracted from my Great Suffering. As my daughter said, Its good to know youre never too old to be immature. Meanwhile, my husband, assuming I was happily watching TV, had fallen asleep, oblivious to the drama going on in the room down the hall, which defeats the whole purpose of being Greatly Offended. It reminded me of the Mothers Day years ago when I ran away from home. Neither of my kids were home and Barry wanted to mow the lawn. He had given me a card and a cake, but I had wanted day-long servitude or something of that nature, which didnt include him mowing the lawn. So, as he worked in the yard, I got in my car and ran away to McDonalds. I nursed a cup of coffee along with all my grudges for about an hour until I thought he would be sufficiently sorry and frantic with worry at my disappearance. I imagined sheriffs cars in my driveway, all-points bulletins issued on my behalf, weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. Because thats the whole point of running away, at least when I do it. Its all about making others feel really, really bad. Its about the other persons remorse and repentance. However, I came home to none of that. When I drove up, Barry was still in the yard and didnt even know I had gone anywhere. As far as he knew, I had been taking a Mothers Day nap or watching a movie. Thats when I determined never to run away again without first making sure my absence would be (a.) noticed and (b.) sufficiently mourned and my return would be properly celebrated. Balloons would be a nice touch, dont you think? In the childrens book, Ill Fix Anthony, Anthonys little brother is ticked. Anthony wont read to him, play checkers with him, and even though the little brother lets Anthony wear his Snoopy sweatshirt, Anthony wont let him borrow his sword. So, the brother decides that when hes six hell fix Anthony and devises all sorts of evil that only a little brother can inflict on a big brother who stinks. We are all little brothers plotting evil, arent we? Were all Greatly Offended, and if you want to be honest, I imagine that you love to be offended as much as I do, although I think I may love it more than you do. As I started writing this, I asked God about it, about loving to be offended and wanting people to take notice and cater to my whims and such. Although I cant be sure it was Gods voice, Im pretty sure he said its caused by thinking of myself too highly and that it would go away when I stop. I told him I didnt think that would happen any time soon, if at all, and he said thats why Jesus died and that I was covered. Also that he would help me. Theres truly no hope without grace.

Just like everyone else, when I started The Path, I had preconceived ideas of homelessness. Without realizing what had happened, I was trained by our current TV programs. I saw in my mind pictures of people in the cities sleeping in cardboard boxes, pushing shopping carts and standing in soup lines for a daily meal. Dont get me wrong: Are people hungry when they check in? Sure, but they are not starving to death as you might see in a third world country. It still breaks your heart to hear that someone is hungry. The harder part to get your mind around is that almost all are suffering malnutrition from a lack of funds and having to buy cheap food. I lived in the shelter for the first four years The Path was open and I answered the intake calls. In a rural area, for several reasons, it was much better for the clients to call in first to make sure they understood the rules and to ensure we had space. The last thing we wanted was for our people to spend their last resources to get to us and find out the shelter was full. So, it did not take long to see how far off my perception was about homelessness in a rural county and to find out what Citrus County needed. Sure, we receive some of the transient population, but to this day, we still see most of our homeless population is comprised of our own residents in stress. In other words, every county in America has homeless; the question is how are we servicing them? Ninety percent what I call displaced by such factors as domestic violence, crime, jail, prison, alcohol, drugs, eviction, loss of jobs and more. All of these situations spell homelessness for us. From the beginning, we at The Path have recognized what comes with this type of check in: daily paperwork, birth certificates, probation, court, family visits, parenting courses, budgeting, job coaching, group counseling and one-onone counseling. Our case management now offers what we call full program. When my wife and I are giving tours, the phrase we often hear is I had no idea. Not only did the visitor not know what homelessness looks like, they had no idea the services being offered to change the circumstances right here in our own back yard. I encourage everyone to come and take a tour and see. I can almost guarantee your preconceived notions of homelessness will be altered.DuWayne Sipper is the executive director of The Path of Citrus County, a faith-based homeless shelter.Contact him at 527-6500 or sipperd@pathofcitrus.org.

SATURDAY, AUGUST9, 2014 C5CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Warren Spahn, a Hall of Fame pitcher who in 1957 won the World Series and Cy Young award playing for the Milwaukee Braves, said, Hitting is timing. Pitching is upsetting timing. What a simple way to sum up baseball. In bridge, timing can also be vital. In todays deal, how should South time the play to make four hearts after West leads the spade queen? Lets assume that declarer ducks (loses) the first trick and takes the second with dummys ace. That South hand is worth more than 18 points because of all those aces and kings. South needs to assume that the trumps are breaking 3-2; otherwise, the contract has no chance. But even then, declarer still has four potential losers: one spade, one heart and two diamonds. The major-suit losers are unavoidable. If the missing diamonds are 3-3, there wont be a problem. If, though, they are the more likely 4-2, declarer will have to ruff a diamond in the dummy. Suppose South cashes his top trumps, then plays three rounds of diamonds. West wins the third diamond, cashes his heart jack, and takes the diamond queen for down one. If instead South immediately plays three rounds of diamonds, West wins and plays a fourth diamond, which promotes a second trump trick for the defense. The correct timing is not obvious. South must duck the first round of diamonds. Probably East will win and play another spade. South ruffs, draws two rounds of trumps, then reverts to diamonds. Even if a defender could ruff a high diamond, the contract would still be safe.

A serious injury greatly reduced Dads mobility and caused chronic pain and hearing impairment. But he is mentally competent and able to live at home with some help. I live a couple of hours away, but I talk to Dad daily, supply nutritionally correct homemade frozen meals and make regular trips to help with house and yard work, minor repairs, appointments, errands and so forth. I also have a job and provide limited care for an in-law, as well, and my husband has serious chronic health issues that also require significant care. I am spread thin, and I am tired. The problem is my sister, who is single, retired, has no children and lives walking distance from Dad. She likes to play the martyr, insisting that Dads condition is far worse than it really is and that hes had dementia for 20 years. She claims to be his 24-hour caregiver. None of this is true. In fact, Dad tells me that my sister rarely calls him, and when she does, she is verbally abusive. Sis tells these lies to the extended family and friends, saying that Im unwilling to help with Dads care. I am not allowed to be a part of the family discussions about Dads needs. I am not allowed to be at family gatherings, as my presence would be too upsetting to my poor, longsuffering sister. She also tells the relatives not to call Dad because hes too incapacitated to know whats going on. It breaks Dads heart not to hear from anyone else. Dad wont correct this misinformation, because he doesnt want to embarrass my sister or have her yell at him. I have tried to hold my head up, ignore gossip and calmly give facts when confronted, but I am tired of being the villain. Above all, I am worried about Dad. How do I dig us both out of this mess? Vilified Sibling Dear Vilified: If your sister is verbally abusive, report it to your local Administration on Aging (aoa.gov). We also recommend you phone or email the relatives and ask them to call Dad because he is lonely and would appreciate hearing from them regardless of his condition. Then please contact the Family Caregiver Alliance (caregiver.org) and ask about respite care for yourself. You have your hands full. Dear Annie: I read the letter from Lonesome Okie, the widower who doesnt understand why women wont go out with him a second time. I am a senior lady who dates senior men. Here are some of the turnoffs: bad hygiene, dirty nails, sloppy clothes, bad table manners and expecting sex right away. Ive experienced all of these. Ladies get prettied up and smelling good, but end up with men who dont care how they look or smell and think its OK. Its not. N.C. Senior Dear N.C.: We heard from a great many women, most of whom wanted us to fix them up with Lonesome Okie. We dont provide that kind of service, sorry. Heres one more: Dear Annie: Single older women outnumber similar men by a tremendous number. In my Sunday school class alone, there are several women who would love to have a man ask them out to lunch or a movie, yet the one or two single men in the group seem to have no interest in doing so. I am a neat, clean, self-responsible Christian woman, with my own car and home. I can make easy conversation with men, but in my 10 years of widowhood, I have yet to be asked out even once. I am self-sufficient and lonely for male companionship, but dont want to get married again. I have many gal pals I travel with, but I miss having a guy around. Tell Okie not to give up.

BRIEFSContinued from Page C3 LUCAS L. JOHNSON II Associated PressNASHVILLE, Tenn. Its the Hollywood ending every studio wants: lowcost production and high returns at the box office. Filmmakers Alex and Stephen Kendrick seem to have the formula down grossing nearly $80 million on four films made for less than $4 million combined. Only thing is the Kendrick brothers work far from Hollywood and, outside the world of Christian-themed cinema, many have never heard of their films. That could change. Increasingly, major studios appear to be taking a leap for faith-based audiences with biblical epics such as Noah starring Russell Crowe, the planned December release of Exodus and a remake of Ben-Hur for early 2016. At one point in April, there were four faithbased movies in the Top 20 at the box office, including Heaven Is for Real, about a 4-year-old boys account of his trip to heaven. It has grossed more than $99 million on a production budget of $12 million by Sony Pictures. Hollywood has taken note, said DeVon Franklin, former Sony senior vice president of production, who oversaw Heaven Is for Real. The Kendrick brothers who just wrapped up filming their fifth project are making movies that could see wider release as distributors pay attention to the box office trends in the traditional Bible Belt and beyond. Their latest film, which has yet to have a title, centers on a family realizing the power of prayer. The point is not racing to see how many movies we can produce, said Alex Kendrick, in a telephone interview from Charlotte, North Carolina. The point is to take the time, in prayer and research, to make a solid film and get the most ministry out of it before moving to the next one. The Kendricks began with a tiny production company with their pastor at Sherwood Baptist, but decided to strike out on their own with their fifth film. The brothers say the separation was amicable and necessary for them to grow as filmmakers and recruit actors and crew nationwide. In previous movies, the brothers mostly used volunteers from their church though one of their more popular movies, Fireproof, did include Kirk Cameron, a veteran actor memorably known starting in the s for his youthful role in a popular TV sitcom, Growing Pains. The people weve gotten to meet who have expertise in areas that we have needed help have come to the table, said Stephen Kendrick. And were growing as filmmakers. Theyre also giving back. The brothers are using the fruits of their success to help up-and-coming filmmakers with projects, as well as mentor a younger generation of hopefuls. During their recent filming, they brought in about 20 interns from different universities who worked under professionals involved in the making of the film. We believe every generation needs to be pouring into and investing in the next generation, Stephen Kendrick said. Hopefully, theyll be able to stand on our shoulders one day and make even better movies. The Kendricks both ministers who sport saltand-pepper beards grew up in suburban Atlanta and now live in Albany in southwestern Georgia. They are still part of the ministry team at the Sherwood megachurch. Along with the churchs senior pastor, Michael Catt, they created Sherwood Pictures in 2002 and scraped together $20,000 to put out their first film, Flywheel, in 2003 about a dishonest used car salesman who learns integrity. With a budget of $100,000, the company released Facing the Giants in 2006. That film about having courage amid adversity ended up grossing more than $10 million, appearing in more than 400 theaters, primarily in the South. Then came Fireproof, a story about a couple struggling to make their marriage work. That movie was made with a budget of just $500,000 and grossed more than $33 million. That was what I would call the dawning of the new era of independent Christian films, said Ben Howard, senior vice president of Provident Films, a part of Sony Pictures that focuses on the Christian audience. Courageous, a film about fatherhood, was released in 2011 and made more than $34 million on a $2 million budget. The fifth Kendrick brothers movie is expected to cost at least $3 million. What people must understand is that Hollywood is a business, said Bishop T.D. Jakes, a megachurch pastor who produced Heaven Is for Real and other faithbased movies. And while we have a message that we want to convey, we are conveying that message to an idiom of thought that is controlled by businesses and budgets. The Kendricks marketing strategy, in particular, has become sort of a blueprint for other Christian filmmakers over the years. It involves prerelease screenings for community church leaders, who are encouraged to spread the word. 2 Bible Belt filmmakers expand box office horizons

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESaturday, August 9, 2014 G33 HEALTHCAREHEROES G4Saturday, August 9, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE HEALTHCAREHEROES Healthcare HeroesAdministrative Excellence There are administrators, and then there are Administrators. Gailen Spinka is the latter. Owner, with his wife and daughter, of Citrus Countys local Comfort Keepers branch, he is known throughout the area for the time and energy he donates to the community and brings to his various leadership roles. With these qualities in mind, he is the recipient of this years Administrative Excellence in Leadership award. Spinka and his family purchased a Comfort Keepers franchise in 2004. In his first career, he worked as a project manager, overseeing fire protection and prevention projects for nuclear power plants in the United States and Canada. But after 9/11 made flying much more stressful, he decided it was time for a change. He brought his organizational and analytical skills to bear, and assessed his and his family membersskills and passions. They decided they would be perfect as part of the home healthcare industry. They explored a wide variety of franchises, and found that Comfort Keepers was the best fit and promoted the highest quality of care. Spinkas wife,Deborah,had accounting experience and she became the office manager; daughter Lindsey had a passion for caregiving and became the care manager. Spinka himself, based on his years of experience as a project manager, took on the job of general manager. Spinka had personal experience with the negative impacts that being a sole caregiver can have on a spouse when his mother was ill, his father filled that role. Another reason we got into it is like when my mom was sick and my dad was taking care of my mom, my dad couldnt leave the house he was like a prisoner to my mother, because she needed 24-hour care, Spinkasaid. And so back then, there wasnt a service like this, and so it was friends, neighbors. And when we would go to help out, he wouldnt go anywhere because hed want to visit the family So now, this is exactly what we do. When one person is down, we take care of that person so that the other person can still sustain life. Doing what needs to be done and assuming leadership roles are constant themes in Spinkas life. Hes also a member of the Rotary Club of Inverness; a member of Suncoast Business Masters; the current president of Citrus County Continuity of Care; a graduate and leader of Leadership Citrus; and a member of the 2014 Board of Directors of the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce. Just this year, Comfort Keepers of Citrus County added private nursing duty services to its offerings and also acquired the Hernando County Comfort Keepers franchise. Networking is something of a passion for Spinka,as well. As an instrumental member and the current leader of the Citrus County Continuity of Care organization, he works to make various health care services in Carolyn Reyes Christine Reick Gailen Spinka Laura Sullivan Mary Alice Tillman Mathew Walters Melissa P. Rogers Terri DavisAdministrative Excellence in Healthcare NomineesGailen Spinka, Comfort Keepers See SPINKA/ Page G5was an orthopedic surgeon and he (the friend)was going to be an orthopedic surgeon, and Im pretty mechanical, and I thought well, I think if Im going to do something Im into sports and athletics and that kind of thing this would be a pretty good fit for me. He attributes some of the credit for his choice to his professors at Georgetown, as well. The school that I went to, Georgetown, we had a really good orthopedic department, and the professors there were really encouraging,Bendowski said. There were a couple of guys that really instilled more of that in me, so from there it was well, Im going to have to do orthopedics.And then after doing some of my rotations in medical school, through some of the other specialties, I thought this is probably the one thing I think I could do for 30or 40years and still be happy with it. Hes found both success and happiness in Citrus County. He has two children, Chelsea and Colton; Chelsea recently earned her masters degree and Colton is in college. Both graduated from Crystal River High School. And,after almost three decades in medicine, he still loves what he does. His favorite part of his day-to-day practice, he said, is the gratification of seeing somebody come in who was having a lot of problems and now theyre better. Being able to literally, in some cases turn somebodys life around, where they can do things that they werent able to do several months before. This drive to improve the lives of his patients, along with his dedication to medicine and to his community, has earned Dr. Thomas Bendowski this years Physicians Excellence in Healthcare award.

One of the things we do really well is continuum of care,Spinka said. We (Comfort Keepers)offer x amount of care, but its not everything people need. We need help. We need Medicare-based companies to come in and help take care of their clients; good doctors we oftentimes have to change doctors, things like that; we need rehab places, so when our clients do have an issue, we know where theyre going and that theyre going to be taken care of there are so many services that we support in the county and that support us. Continuity of Care is a bunch of competitors coming together, but why do we come together? Because we learn about each other, what makes us different, what people excel in, and so when my clients do need a service, were familiar. Spinka, his family and his company are clearly familiar and appreciated by many people in Citrus County. A submission nominating him for the Administrative Excellence in Healthcare award provided glowing praise of his community involvement: Gailen is a pillar of the community. He serves as the president of the Citrus County Continuity of Care group, a Chamber Ambassador, on the Leadership Citrus County board, as well as numerous other positions. He is always present at community events and donates his hard work and money to worthy causes. He does all of this while running a successful business in Ctirus County and now expanding into Hernando County. He is genuinely compassionate about the medical community and Citrus County as a whole. Its due to these qualities, beloved by his family and community alike, that Gailen Spinka was chosen as this years winner of the Administrative Excellence in Healthcare award. He will undoubtedly continue to be an asset to the seniors and citizens of Citrus County and soon to those of Hernando County,as well. SPINKAContinued from Page G4 Healthcare HeroesPhysicians Excellence The Physicians Excellence in Healthcare award honors a physician whose performance is considered exemplary by patients and peers. This years award goes to Dr. Thomas Bendowski, who was chosen from among 23nominations. Dr. Thomas Bendowski has performed four surgeries on my body both shoulders and both knees, his nomination reads. His work is excellent and I have never experienced a problem after the surgeries. He also makes sure that all details are handled efficiently. Because he possesses such good skills and because he is kind and considerate, he has the respect not only of his patients, but also of the medical profession in general. I have mentioned his name to numerous people (nurses, physical therapists, home health care workers, etc.) and always hear the same commentshe is a wonderful,caring doctor. The panel of health care professionals from all corners of the county tended to agree. He eats, sleeps and breathes his practice,said one judge. The guy is phenomenal,said another. A third chimed in: He always goes above and beyond for his patients.A fourth said he deserved the award for his dedication to his practice and his involvement with his community. At his practice in Crystal River, Gulf to Lake Orthopedics, Dr. Bendowski sees mostly joint problems. I do basically general orthopedics, but just by virtue of the population that we have here probably most of that I take care of are knee problems, shoulder problems and hip problems those are probably the three most common, that covers well over 90 percent of everything. Originally from Pennsylvania, Bendowski has lived in Citrus County for almost 23 years. It was quite a journey that brought him here, though. After earning his medical degree from Georgetown in Washington,D.C., he joined the military and spent five years in Hawaii doing his residency, and was transferred to Alaska. The day I got into Fairbanks it was around 32degrees, in July,Bendowski recalled. I had an aloha shirt on, coming from Hawaii, and said no, Im not staying here.After three and a half years in the frigid north, Bendowski moved to Florida. Florida may have been his home had he pursued his original path he started out intending to study marine biology. I went to a college that was really heavily pre-med, and I actually was planning to go into marine biology, he said. But the pre-med program kind of drew me in, and I thought well, I think that this is something Id like to do,so that got me along the medicine route. Choosing a specialty from the myriad options available to medical students can be a painstaking process, but Bendowski discovered orthopedics early on. When I got to medical school,he said, one of my best friendsfatherThomas Bendowski, Gulf to Lake Orthopedics See BENDOWSKI/ Page G33 000IU4S

Established Oct. 1, 2000, the organization is Citrus Countys only not-for-profit Advanced Life Support 911 emergency responder and medical transportation provider. Since its beginnings, Nature Coast EMS has provided not only ambulance services to Citrus County, but numerous educational opportunities and community services,as well. They offer emergency medical services training for healthcare professionals and the general public, including comprehensive training courses for paramedics, EMT certification, Critical Care Paramedic courses and a Pediatric Education for Prehospital Providers course as well as courses in Advanced Medical Life Support, International Trauma Life Support and Advanced Stroke Life Support. They are also an Emergency Care and Safety Institute Training Center and offer online programs in adult and pediatric CPR, AED and first aid; professional rescuer CPR, and lifeguarding, among others. And theyre an American Heart Association Training Center, too they offer all the AHA programs, including Healthcare Provider, Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support. In addition to all those courses and educational opportunities for health care professionals and members of the community, they offer a no-charge Citizens Academy, which educates participants about Nature Coast EMS, emergency medical services and skills useful in emergency situations. Attendees have the opportunity to ride along with paramedics and EMTs and take part in the work they do for patients every day. While the Citizens Academy is for those 18 years and older, Nature Coat EMSs Explorer Program is offered through the Boy Scouts of America and is geared toward young adults of high school age. A division of the Boy Scouts of Americas Learning for Lifeprogram, the Explorer program offers students a chance to learn valuable emergency and life skills, such as responsibility, time management, and teamwork. The program includes classroom instruction, skill lessons and ride-alongs with an ambulance crew. It is available to students between the ages of 14 and 20 who are enrolled in school and have completed the eighth grade. Nature Coast EMS has also recently begun focusing on identifying and preventing recurring issues in patientshomes. Through their community paramedic Brian Bentley, and the new Matter of Balance classes, they are working with people in our community to prevent falls in the home before they happen. We were at 18 percent of our total calls (being)falls,said Mike Hall, president and CEO of Nature Coast EMS. Twenty-two thousand calls: 18 percent of those were falls. Its a pretty big number. And so our goal Ben Lambright Craig Trippett Mended Hearts Chapter of Citrus County Nature Coast EMS Nature Coast MinistriesCommunity Outreach NomineesNature Coast EMSMichael Hall, president and CEO See EMS/ Page G7even though Ive done this 40years, theres never a substitute for education. While most people undoubtedly agree with that sentiment, Brooks co-workers, leaders and patients all also agree that she is a phenomenal nurse. In April, she was named as Seven Rivers Regional Medical Centers Employee of the Year for 2013. This award is the highest honor bestowed upon a hospital employee each year, read the press release from the hospital. Susan was chosen from among 460 employees for the honor.Employees are nominated for that award, much like this one, for their commitment to patient care, their professionalism and their contributions on the job. When questions arise, the release continued, it is Susans clinical expertise and bedside experience that make her a favorite resource for students, co-workers and leadership. She always goes the extra mile to help others without being asked,said Brooks manager, Carol DeFalco, in an interview for the press release. She is so in tune with her work environment and the needs of her co-workers. Her nomination echoed those sentiments, as did the judges who selected her for the Nurses Excellence in Healthcare award from among seven other submitted professionals. Healthcare is a calling to serve others,read the nomination, and I am so honored to have Susan Brooks on our team at Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center. One judge considered her to have just a phenomenal compassion for what she does,and another recalled that she goes above and beyond anything anyone would expect. (She)just has a tremendous amount of compassion and expertise. Brooks herself is very modest: I do this job because I want to do this job, and I like to do it. That quality along with her kindness, compassion, expertise, professionalism, skills and experience has earned Susan Brooks this years Nurses Excellence in Healthcare award.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESaturday, August 9, 2014 G7 HEALTHCAREHEROES G30Saturday, August 9, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE HEALTHCAREHEROES was, in a year, to get it to 15 percent. And in our first four months, we got it to 16 percent. Thats a decrease of 440 calls in four months. A reduction in calls mean a reduction in the number of hospitalizations, which is good for would-be patients as it improves their quality of life; it alsoreduces health care costs for both patients and providers. We started a program called Mobile Integrated Healthcare, said Hall. How can we take our staff that we have and help affect the healthcare? The only thing we had in our quiver was to take somebody to the hospital, and we know that isnt always the right thing we actually become an enabler we show up at somebodys house, we lift them back up, and then (they say) Im not going to the hospital.So we leave them. We help them, its a community service, but its not fixing the problem. It quickly became evident that many of the calls Nature Coast EMS received concerning falls were repeat occurrences.The Mobile Integrated Healthcare program is intended to provide advice for changes that can be made inside the home to prevent future falls before they happen. We identify the people we run reports every day or every few days and see how many people weve gone out on multiple times, and typically theyre falls. And our community paramedic calls them up and says OK, I noticed weve been out to your house several times can I come over there and follow up?Most people 95percent of the people say sure.So he goes over there and gets them better connected to their physician, better connected to somebody that can help them. Its more than just facilitating communication between alternative sources of aid, physicians and patients, though. Bentley also performs safety checks with the goal of eliminating fall risks within the home. When Brian goes out and works with these folks, he goes to their home and observes with their permission observes around their home to see what we can do to reduce the chances of them ending back up in the health care system, said Hall. We also do a CDC fall assessment to see what risk theyre at thats been proven, if you go to the home and you do this fall assessment and you coach the folks, you reduce the falls by around 50 percent. So thats really significant. Thats what were trying to accomplish, by doing some of that, and its been working out great. They also have begun offering a Matter of Balance class, a sixto eight-week class that educates members of the public about better balance, fall prevention and other home health care issues. Taught by local professionals from many different areas and specialties, it brings together fall and home crisis prevention, professionals and community members to reduce the number of home health emergencies and improve participants safety and quality of life. Nature Coast EMSs Mobile Integrated Healthcare program, along with myriad other educational and community involvement opportunities, has earned them this years Community Outreach award. It honors a company or organization that reached out of its normal sphere of operation to focus attention on a healthcare issue or help solve a community problem. Thats certainly what Nature Coast EMS and its leadership and staff strive to do every day. Hernando County,as well. EMSContinued from Page G6 Healthcare HeroesNurses Excellence The Nurses Excellence in Healthcare award honors a nurse working in Citrus County whose performance in considered exemplary by patients and peers whose work ethic, skills and passion for the job combine to make them outstanding in their field. Susan Brooks is, by all accounts, one of those nurses. Born and raised in Kentucky, Brooks retains a little bit of a comforting twang in her speech, although shes worked at Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center for 16years. Many members of her family also work in various healthcare fields adult members, that is. She also has six grandchildren. That is my focus (outside of work), Brooks said fondly, and I am a GREAT granny. They are a lot of fun. I have a little baby granddaughter now thats 18months old, and my oldest ones are 11. She always knew nursing was for her: Susan will tell you that from the time she was 6years old, she wanted to be a nurse, reads her nomination. She got her start 40years ago in a labor and delivery unit. It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed that work,said Brooks, but when I came here,they had no openings in that area.She now works in the medical-surgical department, and she loves that, too. It all still focuses on the patient care and the outcome. Brooks is a licensed practical nurse (LPN), a certification that generally requires two years of training and a passing score on the NCLEX-PN exam. She asserts that she isnt done with her education, though. Ive been an LPN for 40years,she said, and I can do other things, but I do this work because I want to. And I still aspire to further my education, to be a registered nurse. Shes currently beginning the process that will lead to her certification as a registered nurse (RN), which requires graduation with either an associate degree or a bachelors degree from a nursing program,in addition to passing the NCLEX-PN exam. Many times its just procedures, she said of the differences between an LPNs work and an RNs. But,nevertheless,theres a college education related to being a registered nurse, and of course theres never a substitute Dan Marinelli David Douglas Karen Boone Laura Harvey Laura Rhame Maryann Novak Susan BrooksNurses Excellence in Healthcare NomineesSusan Brooks, Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center See BROOKS/ Page G31

night went to Hospice of Citrus and the Nature Coast, in honor of Gelin. Its a great cause andits something that means a lot to Dr. Gelin and he means so much to us,said Vicky Overman, then Citrus Highs athletic director, in a 2007 interview. Its just a small way of saying thank you to him. He was also a significant part of Citrus Memorial Health Systems adoption of the Cerner program in 2013, which computerized many aspects of medicine that were formerly paper-based, such as admissions, discharges and prescriptions. Even though hed been doing things the old-fashioned way since he began practicing, he was enthusiastic about the possibilities that the new technology offered. If you can eliminate medical errors, thats one major advantage,he said in an interview at the time. Its cleaner. I dont have to read Dr. Xs writing and he doesnt have to read mine. This is the safe way to practice medicine. Gelinsstaff of four is around to make extra sure everything is done the safe way, too. His newest staff member, Debbie King, is in her ninth year with his practice, and the lady in charge, Thelma Cali, has been there for 23 years; receptionist Kay Wolf and registered medical assistant Phyllis Kelley have been with Gelin for 15and 17 years, respectively. I owe most of my successes to my ladies,said Gelin of his staff. Speaking of successes and ladies, Gelin met his wife, Granada,while they were both championing the adoption of the Cerner program. He has nine children from previous marriages six daughters and three sons, who have careers all over the map. We have a little bit of everything,said Gelin of his children. We have IT people, we have a football coach, we have a writer one, shes an executive at Universal I have a banker oldest son and youngest son both work for Apple oldest son is a lawyer, the assistant head of the legal department, and the youngest sells them at the Florida Mall. During his 43-year career here in Citrus County, Gelin has made an impact not only on his patients, but also on innumerable students, athletes, young baseball players, fans of high school football, Hospice patients, and other members of the community. He has ceaselessly given his time, experience, expertise and care to the residents of this area. The submission nominating him showed the depth of his attachments here: I was raised in this county with Dr. Gelins daughter, Julie, whom is also now a physician in this county,it read. Dr. Gelin never brings attention to himself but he has been a quiet force in this county for generations. My grandparents have been patients of his my current Director of Nursing is his patient and quite a few residents of Nature Coast Lodge are also his patients. I have never heard one cross word about him I would like to see Dr. Gelin get recognized for his outstanding service as one of our countys longest-standing physicians. For these and his other countless services, Dr. John Gelin is this years recipient of the Lifetime Achievement in Healthcare award.

It was good advice as Dr. Gelins generally is. After all, hes been practicing medicine in Citrus County for 43 years. Before arriving in Floral City, Gelin did his undergraduate studies in psychology at Johns-Hopkins and earned his medical degree from the University of Maryland School of Medicine. When he set up shop in Citrus, he said, he was one of eight doctors in the county five of them on this side of the county and three on the other side.While the healthcare industry in the area has expanded exponentially since the early 1970s, Gelin is still a busy and much-loved family doctor and member of the community. He does much more than see patients, write prescriptions and let his staff keep him in line, though. Hes also heavily involved in a variety of capacities throughout the county. I think the ability to do all the things that I get to do (is my favorite part of what I do), not just being a doctor,he said. Im the medical director of Hospice (of Citrus and the Nature Coast), an umpire of Little League, I announced the high school football games, Ive been the sports doctor for the high school (Citrus)for 43 years you know, in a big town you wouldnt get a chance to do all the fun things, and here you really get involved. Ive coached Little League all the way up to the state finals. Its fun to be a part of the community. His office is liberally decorated with plaques expressing gratitude for his coaching, medical services and time as Rotary president, among other honors too numerous to count. He was honored for his services to Citrus High School in 2007 during halftime at a Hurricanes game against the Hernando Leopards. Citruss head coach at the time, Rik Haines, said of Gelin: Hes like the mailman. Hes always there for us. Rain, sleet, snow, come high water, hes there for us always. Hes just a tremendous person.

Brockett has been practicing in Crystal River for 25years, but got his start in Ocala in 1985 with Dr. Ronald Caylor. He actually started this practice in 1976 or ,said Brockett. I actually bought this practice from him.The two are still close; Caylor will be helping Brockett with his practice while hes on a hard-earned vacation with his wife. When Brockett isnt working, hes often working out. An avid cyclist, swimmer and golfer, he frequently rides his bike to work (I put about two or three hundred miles a week on a bike,he said) and is currently training for a triathlon. July 14 was the anniversary of his first triathlon, in Clermont in 1994.Robert Brockett See BROCKETT/ Page G11 tional element to this that counts,he said. You have all the basic building blocks with the various professions, but you cant lose sight of where you want to go as an organization if you want to accomplish your goals. These three doctors have worked together the past several years to put into action a plan to increase Citrus Countys capacity to provide aboveaverage mental and general health care by beginning the process of creating a cloud-based system of information-sharing between health care professionals. Their prodigious efforts to do so have earned the Memory Enhancement Center this years Innovation in Healthcare award. MECAContinued from Page G26 000IX5J Dr. John Grace, psychiatrist

Callie recently began working with the state attorneys office in Gainesville, and was married two months ago to a wonderful guy,said Brockett, who did his first triathlon here with me. His younger daughter, Caroline, is a sophomore at Vanderbilt, in the School of Human and Occupational Development. She loves children,Brockett said.

Were trying to get recognized as the states, really,the states first rural memory-dedicated center, said Grace. And again, were not talking about being a new UF were talking about a model for other rural centers in how you take care of this population a little bit away from all the bells and whistles. Grace also envisions the Memory Enhancement Center and the cloud-based data sharing as enabling increased followup with dementia and Alzheimers patients. Any time you have a project like this, theres sort of new challenges that come up,he said, and one of the things that I think weve learned over the last six months is that you really need a lot more outreach with memory care patients. Its nice to have a wonderful place that people can come to, but the reality is that when it comes to memory care patients, if you dont reach out to them, youre going to lose a big portion of those patients.

Over the summer, she did some babysitting work for an associate of Dr. Andrew Petrella, of the Citrus Orthopedic and Joint Institute, who has twin boys and a newborn. Brockett will soon have a new partner himself Dr. Rushi Patel, who grew up in Citrus County, graduating from Lecanto High School in 2000. He graduated from dental school at the University of Missouri in 2006, attended a general dental residency at Columbia University, earned his Ph.D. in molecular cell biology from the University of Florida and was considering pursuing a residency in orthodontics. He said he was going to apply to orthodontic residencies, he was going to do orthodontics,Brockett said, and I said Rush, youre not that personality, you have a surgeons mentality. He would have been a wonderful orthodontist, very personable, but I knew that he would probably want the excitement, the difficulty, of reconstruction and trauma and pathology. Brockett felt confident in that statement because hes known Patel since he was a kid, growing up in Citrus County, winning science fairs and shadowing Brockett at his practice. He was 15 years old, looking over my shoulder, one of those bright high school students, said Brockett. And I kept seeing him, he kept coming back to visit, and I thought man, this kid is really something. After completing a four-year oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at the University of Florida, Patel agreed to join Brocketts practice. I feel very blessed I feel like one of my kids is coming back home, I really do,said Brockett. In a recent interview, Patel attributed his desire for a career in dentistry to his experiences with Brockett. Instantly,I fell in love with what he does the types of patients he sees and the interactions he has with his patients, said Patel. Because of him I went to dental school. Its one of those things thats your calling. You feel comfortable with it, you feel good about it and you can envision and see yourself doing it as a goal.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESaturday, August 9, 2014 G25 HEALTHCAREHEROES G12Saturday, August 9, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE HEALTHCAREHEROES BROCKETTContinued from Page G11 See BROCKETT / Page G13 population that really needs better coordination of care? Grace said. So thats kind of the thrust of it to take this vulnerable population and to find a way to connect all the dots in their healthcare using the Internet and cloud-based health care records. The idea of a collaborative approach to information sharing initially took hold in Dr. Paresh Desais mind. A local urologist, he wondered if there was a better way to connect not only a patients various doctors, but to connect mental health patients to the quality of care that they could receive in a large center such as those in Gainesville and Tampa. I have patients that are 80, 90years old and they have to go to Gainesville and they have to go to Tampa,said Desai. It did not make sense, because if they cannot drive, whos going to take care of them? So they are suffering at home, nobodys taking care of them, so I thought lets put the local neurologist, psychologist and local team members together. From that seed, and with the inclusion of Dr. Grace and several others, grew the Memory Enhancement Center. The Centers Board of Directors includes:Dr. John Grace, president, psychiatrist; Dr. John Rowda, secretary, opthamologist; and Dr. Paresh Desai, treasurer, urologist. Its directors include Dr. Frederick J. Herzog, clinical psychologist and nonprofit organization manager; Dr. Parmanand M. Gurnani, psychiatrist; Dr. Gopal Tatambhotls, neurologist; and Christina Martensson, a licensed clinical social worker. The group aspires to not only provide local residents with an increased quality of mental health care and better continuity of care, but to serve as a prototype for similar organizations in rural areas.

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons routinely perform wisdom tooth and other extractions, bone grafting, dental implants and remedial surgeries after minor and major trauma. A lot of this stuff is very painful,said Brockett, so we do things under anesthesia. We can offer far less anxiety. Anytime we do a surgery we sit and talk to the person beforehand and do a preoperative evaluation, and let them know that we can do this painlessly. Oral surgeons are trained in all aspects of anesthesia and anesthesia administration, and become experienced in its application during their intensive four-year residency. Thats probably the biggest thing that oral-maxillofacial surgery offers a pain-free experience, said Brockett. Number two, medically-compromised people if a tooth needs to be removed, your general dentist or a hygienist can do that. If somebody has had a heart transplant, somebody has severe asthma, somebody has severe medical issues that need to be maintained we can handle patients that have complex medical problems. Brockett has been employing his expertise and experience to provide dental services to the Key Center for 25years, as well as in his own practice. During those 25years hes spent in Crystal River, Brockett has embodied the concept of a professional, experienced, knowledgeable and reliable doctor to his patients and his community. His contributions, both professional and personal, and the trust and confidence his patients place in him make him an ideal winner of the award for Dental Excellence in Healthcare. BROCKETTContinued from Page G12 that since you dont have unlimited resources, you have to find a way to sort of connect all the resources that you have. Graces concept is that of a Citrus County in which all of a patients doctors and caregivers have up-to-the-minute information about that patient their medications, reactions, recent test results, notable behavioral changes, recent health incidents and much more.

According to those who know her, though, shes an invaluable member of the Citrus County healthcare scene, and they cant imagine HPH Hospice without her. Shes also this years winner of the Healthcare Humanitarian award, which recognizes a member of the health care system who goes above and beyond to improve the lives of those who cross their path. Sessler is a childrens bereavement counselor with HPH Hospice, and a driving force behind their Childrens Assistance Program (CAP). CAP provides services to children with a life expectancy of less than six months, including palliative care and support for relatives, friends and other loved ones. Saying she goes above and beyond is an understatement in my opinion, her submitted nomination read. Every week she drives between 400 and 600 miles going to schools, facilities and homes to visit and counsel as many of her young clients as she possibly can Regardless of the time of day, she doesnt hesitate to rearrange her entire schedule and drive an unexpected route when she gets an urgent request from someone worried about their child. Sessler grew up in Brooklyn and lived much of her life in Pennsylvania before moving to Florida. Once I came down here and I saw central Florida,she said, I really loved it. Its very beautiful. In Pennsylvania, she worked as an at-risk youth service provider, doing interventions, case management, crisis intervention and counseling. Her last job before moving to Florida was as a tobacco agent, doing tobacco prevention work for Penn State University in partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Health. What I found and this is why I was so happy to land on Hospice was that when I was doing the work for the youth mostly adjudicated youth or youth in danger of being removed from their homes due to family dysfunction was that many of them had been affected by death,she said.

Dr. Connors office since May. When she isnt working, she likes to kayak, read and ride her bicycle. I used to rollerblade, she said. I havent done that in a long time. But, she said, she doesnt resent working long hours. I enjoy being here, I enjoy what Im doing,she said. I dont feel like Im being deprived. She confessed that she didnt want to be a nurse when she was growing up. I wanted to be everything else a journalist, an archaeologist, and I remember telling my brother I never wanted to be a nurse or anything like that. But as she grew older and began to have more responsibilities, it became an attractive career. And then I got married and had kids, she said, and I thought well, nursing isfirst of all a practical profession. I thought that if I went to school I would be able to find work to support my family if I needed to, and I liked the idea of contributing in some way to the well-being to make my life worthwhile. And I like people, I like meeting people, talking to people thats a big part of the satisfaction in the work. She came to Florida from New York in 1985. She was a registered nurse at the time and worked at Citrus Memorial Hospital for a year, and then the Hernando County Health Department for a year before moving to the Citrus County Health Department. It was during her time with the Citrus County Health Department that she furthered her education; the Health Department sent her to Emory University to get training as a womens health nurse practitioner. Novak also earned her masters degree in public health, her masters degree in science and nursing as a family nurse practitioner, and a postmasters certificate as a psychiatric/mental health nurse practitioner. Thats in addition to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Bachelor of Arts in Psychology she earned while living in New York, from Herbert H. Lehman College and City College of New York,respectively. Throughout her career and continuing education, she has discovered the aspects of nursing that she particularly enjoys. Along with interacting with people and hearing her patientsstories, she enjoys the investigative, problemsolving aspects of health care. Some people are kind of like a puzzle,she said. So its like a mystery, like being a detective to try to figure out whats going on, and the best treatment for them. Novak also likes educating her patients about preventing health issues before they arise. I like the teaching aspects, she said. Preventative practices to prevent disease, things like that. Whether its teaching her patients about disease prevention, learning about their lives or figuring out the best course of treatment, Maryann Novak embodies the qualities for which the Healthcare Professional award is given: hard work and dedication on behalf of her patients, not just to improve their health,but to ensure that each one feels valued and respected.

One part of HPH Hospice and CAPs services for children is a quilt donation program, in partnership with Citrus County Cracker Quilters. Quilts are made and donated to HPH Hospice, which in turn gives them to children receiving their services, or whose family members are patients receiving hospice care. Weve been fortunate to receive quilts that Ive been able to give to children, and we on occasion, not all the time, but on occasion we have had the opportunity to provide very specific quilts for specific children, particularly those related to our patients SESSLERContinued from Page G14 See SESSLER/ Page G17 NOVAKContinued from Page G20 000IU4W Thank You For Your Continued Trust! 2014 2014 2014 2014 Independently Owned & Operated Office.

where the patient has been able to provide, lets say, the birth date and the birth weight and the colors, so that the child can have a remembrance once that person is dead,said Sessler. It (making a quilt to donate) was also special to the quilter. Theres a particularly beautiful thing that seems to happen that Ive been privileged to watch,where someone whos doing something for someone else totally altruistically just seems to enjoy it and get so much out of it. So it was a win-win. HPH Hospice and CAPs services for grieving children also include grief camps: a three-day camp in March for middle and high school students, and one-day summer camps for primary school children. The students get to express themselves not just in terms of expressing their emotions and telling their stories, they get to do drumming, they get to do creative work, they get to play together, they get to do challenges where they learn to trust each other, said Sessler, And all of that depends on our volunteers. They make it possible for us to do that, and its very transformative. Sessler herself leads much of the drumming and has a talent for using her music to connect with children and as a form of therapy for those who are grieving. In addition to caring, empathy and passion for her work and for helping children, modesty is another quality Sessler possesses in abundance. She speaks highly and at length of the volunteers and community members who support HPH Hospice and the Childrens Assistance Program. Im not a one-man show,she said. There are lots of people who are so involved in supporting children thats teachers and guidance counselors and principals, and our nurses and their parents, and sometimes aunts and uncles, and people in the community. Its a collaborative effort... and that includes church groups, she said. When children lose someone they love, their world falls apart. And no one person can put it back together again. Some people think oh, theres nothing I can do.But there is, even if its just a tiny little thing. Everybody does a little bit and those children are the better for it, and they are helped to heal. Congratulations, Nilda Sessler, for winning this years Healthcare Humanitarian award.

This award honors a healthcare professional whose patients, peers and leaders feel routinely goes above and beyond the expected duties of their position to serve patients. There are those that fulfill their job description and there are those who go above and beyond their required duties. Maryann Novak, NP-C, is one that goes above and beyond her required duties,her nomination read. During our conversations,I always sense that my health is paramount and that her goal is to assist me with my questions and eliminate my worry or concern. Novak was nominated in another category, as well Nurses Excellence in Healthcare, for which she was nominated by one of her children. My Mom was widowed while very young and never remarried,it began. Against all the odds, she managed to provide for me and my brother while continuing her education and working full time for the Citrus County Health Department. I can still recall the feeling of relief seeing her walk into the house after returning from Tampa (USF) usually around midnight in the middle of the work week. Although relieved at the time to see her, it wasnt until many years later that I began to understand the dedication required to take night classes at USF in Tampa working full time, and all the normal home-related chores. Maryann Novak is simply a person of angelic moral character, who has a great deal of integrity and an outstanding work ethic. That work ethic is in evidence at Dr. Tara Connors practice Novak confessed to working probably 11or 12hours a dayat the moment.

Dr. Connors office since May. When she isnt working, she likes to kayak, read and ride her bicycle. I used to rollerblade, she said. I havent done that in a long time. But, she said, she doesnt resent working long hours. I enjoy being here, I enjoy what Im doing,she said. I dont feel like Im being deprived. She confessed that she didnt want to be a nurse when she was growing up. I wanted to be everything else a journalist, an archaeologist, and I remember telling my brother I never wanted to be a nurse or anything like that. But as she grew older and began to have more responsibilities, it became an attractive career. And then I got married and had kids, she said, and I thought well, nursing isfirst of all a practical profession. I thought that if I went to school I would be able to find work to support my family if I needed to, and I liked the idea of contributing in some way to the well-being to make my life worthwhile. And I like people, I like meeting people, talking to people thats a big part of the satisfaction in the work. She came to Florida from New York in 1985. She was a registered nurse at the time and worked at Citrus Memorial Hospital for a year, and then the Hernando County Health Department for a year before moving to the Citrus County Health Department. It was during her time with the Citrus County Health Department that she furthered her education; the Health Department sent her to Emory University to get training as a womens health nurse practitioner. Novak also earned her masters degree in public health, her masters degree in science and nursing as a family nurse practitioner, and a postmasters certificate as a psychiatric/mental health nurse practitioner. Thats in addition to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Bachelor of Arts in Psychology she earned while living in New York, from Herbert H. Lehman College and City College of New York,respectively. Throughout her career and continuing education, she has discovered the aspects of nursing that she particularly enjoys. Along with interacting with people and hearing her patientsstories, she enjoys the investigative, problemsolving aspects of health care. Some people are kind of like a puzzle,she said. So its like a mystery, like being a detective to try to figure out whats going on, and the best treatment for them. Novak also likes educating her patients about preventing health issues before they arise. I like the teaching aspects, she said. Preventative practices to prevent disease, things like that. Whether its teaching her patients about disease prevention, learning about their lives or figuring out the best course of treatment, Maryann Novak embodies the qualities for which the Healthcare Professional award is given: hard work and dedication on behalf of her patients, not just to improve their health,but to ensure that each one feels valued and respected. Her efforts in every aspect of her nursing career and personal life make her an exemplary Healthcare Hero.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESaturday, August 9, 2014 G21 HEALTHCAREHEROES G16Saturday, August 9, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE HEALTHCAREHEROES 000IXWK V.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESaturday, August 9, 2014 G23 HEALTHCAREHEROES G14Saturday, August 9, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE HEALTHCAREHEROES Healthcare HeroesHealthcare Humanitarian Nilda Sessler isnt from around here. According to those who know her, though, shes an invaluable member of the Citrus County healthcare scene, and they cant imagine HPH Hospice without her. Shes also this years winner of the Healthcare Humanitarian award, which recognizes a member of the health care system who goes above and beyond to improve the lives of those who cross their path. Sessler is a childrens bereavement counselor with HPH Hospice, and a driving force behind their Childrens Assistance Program (CAP). CAP provides services to children with a life expectancy of less than six months, including palliative care and support for relatives, friends and other loved ones. Saying she goes above and beyond is an understatement in my opinion, her submitted nomination read. Every week she drives between 400 and 600 miles going to schools, facilities and homes to visit and counsel as many of her young clients as she possibly can Regardless of the time of day, she doesnt hesitate to rearrange her entire schedule and drive an unexpected route when she gets an urgent request from someone worried about their child. Sessler grew up in Brooklyn and lived much of her life in Pennsylvania before moving to Florida. Once I came down here and I saw central Florida,she said, I really loved it. Its very beautiful. In Pennsylvania, she worked as an at-risk youth service provider, doing interventions, case management, crisis intervention and counseling. Her last job before moving to Florida was as a tobacco agent, doing tobacco prevention work for Penn State University in partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Health. What I found and this is why I was so happy to land on Hospice was that when I was doing the work for the youth mostly adjudicated youth or youth in danger of being removed from their homes due to family dysfunction was that many of them had been affected by death,she said.

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons routinely perform wisdom tooth and other extractions, bone grafting, dental implants and remedial surgeries after minor and major trauma. A lot of this stuff is very painful,said Brockett, so we do things under anesthesia. We can offer far less anxiety. Anytime we do a surgery we sit and talk to the person beforehand and do a preoperative evaluation, and let them know that we can do this painlessly. Oral surgeons are trained in all aspects of anesthesia and anesthesia administration, and become experienced in its application during their intensive four-year residency. Thats probably the biggest thing that oral-maxillofacial surgery offers a pain-free experience, said Brockett. Number two, medically-compromised people if a tooth needs to be removed, your general dentist or a hygienist can do that. If somebody has had a heart transplant, somebody has severe asthma, somebody has severe medical issues that need to be maintained we can handle patients that have complex medical problems. Brockett has been employing his expertise and experience to provide dental services to the Key Center for 25years, as well as in his own practice. During those 25years hes spent in Crystal River, Brockett has embodied the concept of a professional, experienced, knowledgeable and reliable doctor to his patients and his community. His contributions, both professional and personal, and the trust and confidence his patients place in him make him an ideal winner of the award for Dental Excellence in Healthcare. BROCKETTContinued from Page G12 that since you dont have unlimited resources, you have to find a way to sort of connect all the resources that you have. Graces concept is that of a Citrus County in which all of a patients doctors and caregivers have up-to-the-minute information about that patient their medications, reactions, recent test results, notable behavioral changes, recent health incidents and much more. And so our idea is that can we somehow connect the resources that we have in a community through a cloud-based record system that will allow us to take better care of a MECAContinued from Page G23 See MECA/ Page G25 000IXS6 Expect More From Home Health Care, Choose The Best!

Over the summer, she did some babysitting work for an associate of Dr. Andrew Petrella, of the Citrus Orthopedic and Joint Institute, who has twin boys and a newborn. Brockett will soon have a new partner himself Dr. Rushi Patel, who grew up in Citrus County, graduating from Lecanto High School in 2000. He graduated from dental school at the University of Missouri in 2006, attended a general dental residency at Columbia University, earned his Ph.D. in molecular cell biology from the University of Florida and was considering pursuing a residency in orthodontics. He said he was going to apply to orthodontic residencies, he was going to do orthodontics,Brockett said, and I said Rush, youre not that personality, you have a surgeons mentality. He would have been a wonderful orthodontist, very personable, but I knew that he would probably want the excitement, the difficulty, of reconstruction and trauma and pathology. Brockett felt confident in that statement because hes known Patel since he was a kid, growing up in Citrus County, winning science fairs and shadowing Brockett at his practice. He was 15 years old, looking over my shoulder, one of those bright high school students, said Brockett. And I kept seeing him, he kept coming back to visit, and I thought man, this kid is really something. After completing a four-year oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at the University of Florida, Patel agreed to join Brocketts practice. I feel very blessed I feel like one of my kids is coming back home, I really do,said Brockett. In a recent interview, Patel attributed his desire for a career in dentistry to his experiences with Brockett. Instantly,I fell in love with what he does the types of patients he sees and the interactions he has with his patients, said Patel. Because of him I went to dental school. Its one of those things thats your calling. You feel comfortable with it, you feel good about it and you can envision and see yourself doing it as a goal.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESaturday, August 9, 2014 G25 HEALTHCAREHEROES G12Saturday, August 9, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE HEALTHCAREHEROES BROCKETTContinued from Page G11 See BROCKETT / Page G13 population that really needs better coordination of care? Grace said. So thats kind of the thrust of it to take this vulnerable population and to find a way to connect all the dots in their healthcare using the Internet and cloud-based health care records. The idea of a collaborative approach to information sharing initially took hold in Dr. Paresh Desais mind. A local urologist, he wondered if there was a better way to connect not only a patients various doctors, but to connect mental health patients to the quality of care that they could receive in a large center such as those in Gainesville and Tampa. I have patients that are 80, 90years old and they have to go to Gainesville and they have to go to Tampa,said Desai. It did not make sense, because if they cannot drive, whos going to take care of them? So they are suffering at home, nobodys taking care of them, so I thought lets put the local neurologist, psychologist and local team members together. From that seed, and with the inclusion of Dr. Grace and several others, grew the Memory Enhancement Center. The Centers Board of Directors includes:Dr. John Grace, president, psychiatrist; Dr. John Rowda, secretary, opthamologist; and Dr. Paresh Desai, treasurer, urologist. Its directors include Dr. Frederick J. Herzog, clinical psychologist and nonprofit organization manager; Dr. Parmanand M. Gurnani, psychiatrist; Dr. Gopal Tatambhotls, neurologist; and Christina Martensson, a licensed clinical social worker. The group aspires to not only provide local residents with an increased quality of mental health care and better continuity of care, but to serve as a prototype for similar organizations in rural areas.

Were trying to get recognized as the states, really,the states first rural memory-dedicated center, said Grace. And again, were not talking about being a new UF were talking about a model for other rural centers in how you take care of this population a little bit away from all the bells and whistles. Grace also envisions the Memory Enhancement Center and the cloud-based data sharing as enabling increased followup with dementia and Alzheimers patients. Any time you have a project like this, theres sort of new challenges that come up,he said, and one of the things that I think weve learned over the last six months is that you really need a lot more outreach with memory care patients. Its nice to have a wonderful place that people can come to, but the reality is that when it comes to memory care patients, if you dont reach out to them, youre going to lose a big portion of those patients.

Brockett has been practicing in Crystal River for 25years, but got his start in Ocala in 1985 with Dr. Ronald Caylor. He actually started this practice in 1976 or ,said Brockett. I actually bought this practice from him.The two are still close; Caylor will be helping Brockett with his practice while hes on a hard-earned vacation with his wife. When Brockett isnt working, hes often working out. An avid cyclist, swimmer and golfer, he frequently rides his bike to work (I put about two or three hundred miles a week on a bike,he said) and is currently training for a triathlon.

You have all the basic building blocks with the various professions, but you cant lose sight of where you want to go as an organization if you want to accomplish your goals. These three doctors have worked together the past several years to put into action a plan to increase Citrus Countys capacity to provide aboveaverage mental and general health care by beginning the process of creating a cloud-based system of information-sharing between health care professionals.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESaturday, August 9, 2014 G9 HEALTHCAREHEROES G28Saturday, August 9, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE HEALTHCAREHEROES Healthcare HeroesLifetime Achievement When Dr. John Gelin heard that hed won the 2014 Healthcare Heroes Lifetime Achievement award, he advised that whoever came to interview him bring extra notebooks. It was good advice as Dr. Gelins generally is. After all, hes been practicing medicine in Citrus County for 43 years. Before arriving in Floral City, Gelin did his undergraduate studies in psychology at Johns-Hopkins and earned his medical degree from the University of Maryland School of Medicine. When he set up shop in Citrus, he said, he was one of eight doctors in the county five of them on this side of the county and three on the other side.While the healthcare industry in the area has expanded exponentially since the early 1970s, Gelin is still a busy and much-loved family doctor and member of the community. He does much more than see patients, write prescriptions and let his staff keep him in line, though. Hes also heavily involved in a variety of capacities throughout the county. I think the ability to do all the things that I get to do (is my favorite part of what I do), not just being a doctor,he said. Im the medical director of Hospice (of Citrus and the Nature Coast), an umpire of Little League, I announced the high school football games, Ive been the sports doctor for the high school (Citrus)for 43 years you know, in a big town you wouldnt get a chance to do all the fun things, and here you really get involved. Ive coached Little League all the way up to the state finals. Its fun to be a part of the community. His office is liberally decorated with plaques expressing gratitude for his coaching, medical services and time as Rotary president, among other honors too numerous to count. He was honored for his services to Citrus High School in 2007 during halftime at a Hurricanes game against the Hernando Leopards. Citruss head coach at the time, Rik Haines, said of Gelin: Hes like the mailman. Hes always there for us. Rain, sleet, snow, come high water, hes there for us always. Hes just a tremendous person.

night went to Hospice of Citrus and the Nature Coast, in honor of Gelin. Its a great cause andits something that means a lot to Dr. Gelin and he means so much to us,said Vicky Overman, then Citrus Highs athletic director, in a 2007 interview. Its just a small way of saying thank you to him. He was also a significant part of Citrus Memorial Health Systems adoption of the Cerner program in 2013, which computerized many aspects of medicine that were formerly paper-based, such as admissions, discharges and prescriptions. Even though hed been doing things the old-fashioned way since he began practicing, he was enthusiastic about the possibilities that the new technology offered. If you can eliminate medical errors, thats one major advantage,he said in an interview at the time. Its cleaner. I dont have to read Dr. Xs writing and he doesnt have to read mine. This is the safe way to practice medicine. Gelinsstaff of four is around to make extra sure everything is done the safe way, too. His newest staff member, Debbie King, is in her ninth year with his practice, and the lady in charge, Thelma Cali, has been there for 23 years; receptionist Kay Wolf and registered medical assistant Phyllis Kelley have been with Gelin for 15and 17 years, respectively. I owe most of my successes to my ladies,said Gelin of his staff. Speaking of successes and ladies, Gelin met his wife, Granada,while they were both championing the adoption of the Cerner program. He has nine children from previous marriages six daughters and three sons, who have careers all over the map. We have a little bit of everything,said Gelin of his children. We have IT people, we have a football coach, we have a writer one, shes an executive at Universal I have a banker oldest son and youngest son both work for Apple oldest son is a lawyer, the assistant head of the legal department, and the youngest sells them at the Florida Mall. During his 43-year career here in Citrus County, Gelin has made an impact not only on his patients, but also on innumerable students, athletes, young baseball players, fans of high school football, Hospice patients, and other members of the community. He has ceaselessly given his time, experience, expertise and care to the residents of this area. The submission nominating him showed the depth of his attachments here: I was raised in this county with Dr. Gelins daughter, Julie, whom is also now a physician in this county,it read. Dr. Gelin never brings attention to himself but he has been a quiet force in this county for generations. My grandparents have been patients of his my current Director of Nursing is his patient and quite a few residents of Nature Coast Lodge are also his patients. I have never heard one cross word about him I would like to see Dr. Gelin get recognized for his outstanding service as one of our countys longest-standing physicians. For these and his other countless services, Dr. John Gelin is this years recipient of the Lifetime Achievement in Healthcare award.

And in our first four months, we got it to 16 percent. Thats a decrease of 440 calls in four months. A reduction in calls mean a reduction in the number of hospitalizations, which is good for would-be patients as it improves their quality of life; it alsoreduces health care costs for both patients and providers. We started a program called Mobile Integrated Healthcare, said Hall. How can we take our staff that we have and help affect the healthcare? The only thing we had in our quiver was to take somebody to the hospital, and we know that isnt always the right thing we actually become an enabler we show up at somebodys house, we lift them back up, and then (they say) Im not going to the hospital.So we leave them. We help them, its a community service, but its not fixing the problem. It quickly became evident that many of the calls Nature Coast EMS received concerning falls were repeat occurrences.The Mobile Integrated Healthcare program is intended to provide advice for changes that can be made inside the home to prevent future falls before they happen. We identify the people we run reports every day or every few days and see how many people weve gone out on multiple times, and typically theyre falls. And our community paramedic calls them up and says OK, I noticed weve been out to your house several times can I come over there and follow up?Most people 95percent of the people say sure.So he goes over there and gets them better connected to their physician, better connected to somebody that can help them. Its more than just facilitating communication between alternative sources of aid, physicians and patients, though. Bentley also performs safety checks with the goal of eliminating fall risks within the home. When Brian goes out and works with these folks, he goes to their home and observes with their permission observes around their home to see what we can do to reduce the chances of them ending back up in the health care system, said Hall. We also do a CDC fall assessment to see what risk theyre at thats been proven, if you go to the home and you do this fall assessment and you coach the folks, you reduce the falls by around 50 percent. So thats really significant. Thats what were trying to accomplish, by doing some of that, and its been working out great. They also have begun offering a Matter of Balance class, a sixto eight-week class that educates members of the public about better balance, fall prevention and other home health care issues. Taught by local professionals from many different areas and specialties, it brings together fall and home crisis prevention, professionals and community members to reduce the number of home health emergencies and improve participants safety and quality of life. Nature Coast EMSs Mobile Integrated Healthcare program, along with myriad other educational and community involvement opportunities, has earned them this years Community Outreach award. It honors a company or organization that reached out of its normal sphere of operation to focus attention on a healthcare issue or help solve a community problem. Thats certainly what Nature Coast EMS and its leadership and staff strive to do every day. Hernando County,as well.

Susan Brooks is, by all accounts, one of those nurses. Born and raised in Kentucky, Brooks retains a little bit of a comforting twang in her speech, although shes worked at Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center for 16years. Many members of her family also work in various healthcare fields adult members, that is. She also has six grandchildren. That is my focus (outside of work), Brooks said fondly, and I am a GREAT granny. They are a lot of fun. I have a little baby granddaughter now thats 18months old, and my oldest ones are 11. She always knew nursing was for her: Susan will tell you that from the time she was 6years old, she wanted to be a nurse, reads her nomination. She got her start 40years ago in a labor and delivery unit. It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed that work,said Brooks, but when I came here,they had no openings in that area.She now works in the medical-surgical department, and she loves that, too. It all still focuses on the patient care and the outcome. Brooks is a licensed practical nurse (LPN), a certification that generally requires two years of training and a passing score on the NCLEX-PN exam. She asserts that she isnt done with her education, though. Ive been an LPN for 40years,she said, and I can do other things, but I do this work because I want to. And I still aspire to further my education, to be a registered nurse. Shes currently beginning the process that will lead to her certification as a registered nurse (RN), which requires graduation with either an associate degree or a bachelors degree from a nursing program,in addition to passing the NCLEX-PN exam. Many times its just procedures, she said of the differences between an LPNs work and an RNs.

Established Oct. 1, 2000, the organization is Citrus Countys only not-for-profit Advanced Life Support 911 emergency responder and medical transportation provider. Since its beginnings, Nature Coast EMS has provided not only ambulance services to Citrus County, but numerous educational opportunities and community services,as well. They offer emergency medical services training for healthcare professionals and the general public, including comprehensive training courses for paramedics, EMT certification, Critical Care Paramedic courses and a Pediatric Education for Prehospital Providers course as well as courses in Advanced Medical Life Support, International Trauma Life Support and Advanced Stroke Life Support. They are also an Emergency Care and Safety Institute Training Center and offer online programs in adult and pediatric CPR, AED and first aid; professional rescuer CPR, and lifeguarding, among others. And theyre an American Heart Association Training Center, too they offer all the AHA programs, including Healthcare Provider, Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support. In addition to all those courses and educational opportunities for health care professionals and members of the community, they offer a no-charge Citizens Academy, which educates participants about Nature Coast EMS, emergency medical services and skills useful in emergency situations. Attendees have the opportunity to ride along with paramedics and EMTs and take part in the work they do for patients every day. While the Citizens Academy is for those 18 years and older, Nature Coat EMSs Explorer Program is offered through the Boy Scouts of America and is geared toward young adults of high school age. A division of the Boy Scouts of Americas Learning for Lifeprogram, the Explorer program offers students a chance to learn valuable emergency and life skills, such as responsibility, time management, and teamwork. The program includes classroom instruction, skill lessons and ride-alongs with an ambulance crew. It is available to students between the ages of 14 and 20 who are enrolled in school and have completed the eighth grade. Nature Coast EMS has also recently begun focusing on identifying and preventing recurring issues in patientshomes. Through their community paramedic Brian Bentley, and the new Matter of Balance classes, they are working with people in our community to prevent falls in the home before they happen.

In April, she was named as Seven Rivers Regional Medical Centers Employee of the Year for 2013. This award is the highest honor bestowed upon a hospital employee each year, read the press release from the hospital. Susan was chosen from among 460 employees for the honor.Employees are nominated for that award, much like this one, for their commitment to patient care, their professionalism and their contributions on the job. When questions arise, the release continued, it is Susans clinical expertise and bedside experience that make her a favorite resource for students, co-workers and leadership. She always goes the extra mile to help others without being asked,said Brooks manager, Carol DeFalco, in an interview for the press release. She is so in tune with her work environment and the needs of her co-workers. Her nomination echoed those sentiments, as did the judges who selected her for the Nurses Excellence in Healthcare award from among seven other submitted professionals. Healthcare is a calling to serve others,read the nomination, and I am so honored to have Susan Brooks on our team at Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center. One judge considered her to have just a phenomenal compassion for what she does,and another recalled that she goes above and beyond anything anyone would expect. (She)just has a tremendous amount of compassion and expertise. Brooks herself is very modest: I do this job because I want to do this job, and I like to do it.

One of the things we do really well is continuum of care,Spinka said. We (Comfort Keepers)offer x amount of care, but its not everything people need. We need help. We need Medicare-based companies to come in and help take care of their clients; good doctors we oftentimes have to change doctors, things like that; we need rehab places, so when our clients do have an issue, we know where theyre going and that theyre going to be taken care of there are so many services that we support in the county and that support us. Continuity of Care is a bunch of competitors coming together, but why do we come together? Because we learn about each other, what makes us different, what people excel in, and so when my clients do need a service, were familiar. Spinka, his family and his company are clearly familiar and appreciated by many people in Citrus County. A submission nominating him for the Administrative Excellence in Healthcare award provided glowing praise of his community involvement: Gailen is a pillar of the community. He serves as the president of the Citrus County Continuity of Care group, a Chamber Ambassador, on the Leadership Citrus County board, as well as numerous other positions. He is always present at community events and donates his hard work and money to worthy causes. He does all of this while running a successful business in Ctirus County and now expanding into Hernando County. He is genuinely compassionate about the medical community and Citrus County as a whole. Its due to these qualities, beloved by his family and community alike, that Gailen Spinka was chosen as this years winner of the Administrative Excellence in Healthcare award. He will undoubtedly continue to be an asset to the seniors and citizens of Citrus County and soon to those of Hernando County,as well. SPINKAContinued from Page G4 Healthcare HeroesPhysicians Excellence The Physicians Excellence in Healthcare award honors a physician whose performance is considered exemplary by patients and peers. This years award goes to Dr. Thomas Bendowski, who was chosen from among 23nominations. Dr. Thomas Bendowski has performed four surgeries on my body both shoulders and both knees, his nomination reads. His work is excellent and I have never experienced a problem after the surgeries. He also makes sure that all details are handled efficiently. Because he possesses such good skills and because he is kind and considerate, he has the respect not only of his patients, but also of the medical profession in general. I have mentioned his name to numerous people (nurses, physical therapists, home health care workers, etc.) and always hear the same commentshe is a wonderful,caring doctor. The panel of health care professionals from all corners of the county tended to agree. He eats, sleeps and breathes his practice,said one judge. The guy is phenomenal,said another. A third chimed in: He always goes above and beyond for his patients.A fourth said he deserved the award for his dedication to his practice and his involvement with his community. At his practice in Crystal River, Gulf to Lake Orthopedics, Dr. Bendowski sees mostly joint problems. I do basically general orthopedics, but just by virtue of the population that we have here probably most of that I take care of are knee problems, shoulder problems and hip problems those are probably the three most common, that covers well over 90 percent of everything. Originally from Pennsylvania, Bendowski has lived in Citrus County for almost 23 years. It was quite a journey that brought him here, though. After earning his medical degree from Georgetown in Washington,D.C., he joined the military and spent five years in Hawaii doing his residency, and was transferred to Alaska. The day I got into Fairbanks it was around 32degrees, in July,Bendowski recalled. I had an aloha shirt on, coming from Hawaii, and said no, Im not staying here.After three and a half years in the frigid north, Bendowski moved to Florida. Florida may have been his home had he pursued his original path he started out intending to study marine biology. I went to a college that was really heavily pre-med, and I actually was planning to go into marine biology, he said. But the pre-med program kind of drew me in, and I thought well, I think that this is something Id like to do,so that got me along the medicine route. Choosing a specialty from the myriad options available to medical students can be a painstaking process, but Bendowski discovered orthopedics early on.

Gailen Spinka is the latter. Owner, with his wife and daughter, of Citrus Countys local Comfort Keepers branch, he is known throughout the area for the time and energy he donates to the community and brings to his various leadership roles. With these qualities in mind, he is the recipient of this years Administrative Excellence in Leadership award. Spinka and his family purchased a Comfort Keepers franchise in 2004. In his first career, he worked as a project manager, overseeing fire protection and prevention projects for nuclear power plants in the United States and Canada. But after 9/11 made flying much more stressful, he decided it was time for a change. He brought his organizational and analytical skills to bear, and assessed his and his family membersskills and passions. They decided they would be perfect as part of the home healthcare industry. They explored a wide variety of franchises, and found that Comfort Keepers was the best fit and promoted the highest quality of care. Spinkas wife,Deborah,had accounting experience and she became the office manager; daughter Lindsey had a passion for caregiving and became the care manager. Spinka himself, based on his years of experience as a project manager, took on the job of general manager. Spinka had personal experience with the negative impacts that being a sole caregiver can have on a spouse when his mother was ill, his father filled that role. Another reason we got into it is like when my mom was sick and my dad was taking care of my mom, my dad couldnt leave the house he was like a prisoner to my mother, because she needed 24-hour care, Spinkasaid. And so back then, there wasnt a service like this, and so it was friends, neighbors. And when we would go to help out, he wouldnt go anywhere because hed want to visit the family So now, this is exactly what we do. When one person is down, we take care of that person so that the other person can still sustain life. Doing what needs to be done and assuming leadership roles are constant themes in Spinkas life. Hes also a member of the Rotary Club of Inverness; a member of Suncoast Business Masters; the current president of Citrus County Continuity of Care; a graduate and leader of Leadership Citrus; and a member of the 2014 Board of Directors of the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce. Just this year, Comfort Keepers of Citrus County added private nursing duty services to its offerings and also acquired the Hernando County Comfort Keepers franchise. Networking is something of a passion for Spinka,as well. As an instrumental member and the current leader of the Citrus County Continuity of Care organization, he works to make various health care services in Carolyn Reyes Christine Reick Gailen Spinka Laura Sullivan Mary Alice Tillman Mathew Walters Melissa P. Rogers Terri DavisAdministrative Excellence in Healthcare NomineesGailen Spinka, Comfort Keepers See SPINKA/ Page G5was an orthopedic surgeon and he (the friend)was going to be an orthopedic surgeon, and Im pretty mechanical, and I thought well, I think if Im going to do something Im into sports and athletics and that kind of thing this would be a pretty good fit for me. He attributes some of the credit for his choice to his professors at Georgetown, as well. The school that I went to, Georgetown, we had a really good orthopedic department, and the professors there were really encouraging,Bendowski said. There were a couple of guys that really instilled more of that in me, so from there it was well, Im going to have to do orthopedics.And then after doing some of my rotations in medical school, through some of the other specialties, I thought this is probably the one thing I think I could do for 30or 40years and still be happy with it. Hes found both success and happiness in Citrus County. He has two children, Chelsea and Colton; Chelsea recently earned her masters degree and Colton is in college. Both graduated from Crystal River High School. And,after almost three decades in medicine, he still loves what he does. His favorite part of his day-to-day practice, he said, is the gratification of seeing somebody come in who was having a lot of problems and now theyre better. Being able to literally, in some cases turn somebodys life around, where they can do things that they werent able to do several months before. This drive to improve the lives of his patients, along with his dedication to medicine and to his community, has earned Dr. Thomas Bendowski this years Physicians Excellence in Healthcare award.
