Associated PressFORT LAUDERDALE Expanding Medicaid to an additional 1million Floridians under President Barack Obamas new health law is turning into one of the biggest issues of this years gubernatorial race. Former Gov. Charlie Crist brings up the topic on most campaign stops and says one of the first things hell do if elected is call a special session to expand Medicaid. His opponent, incumbent Republican Gov. Rick Scott, seems to be waning in his support. Scott says hes open to taking roughly $51 billion over the next decade from the federal government, but only as long as Florida taxpayers arent left with the bill. In a surprise move two years ago, Scott made an emotional speech, saying that Medicaid expansion was a compassionate, common-sense choice. But he never put his full political weight behind the issue and the Legislature rejected expansion under the Affordable Care Act. Scott has since backed away from his position, telling MSNBC earlier this year: I said while the federal government is going to pay 100percent, I wont stand in the way of ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerFive dealerships, seven dealers and one campaign.

Rake meets Lyngbya MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleBrad Knoll pulls a pontoon boat loaded with Lygnbya algae toward the shoreline Friday morning in Kings Bay on the Crystal Rive r. He and two other workers wrestled with the slimy aquatic weed throughout the morning. Algae fighters count tons of muck removed through years of hard labor A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerIt is perhaps one of the cases where the moniker of a project fits aptly with the reality of what is being done. The One Rake at a Time project has employed a rake, an army of volunteers and some paid professionals to scrub the sandy floors of Kings Bays coves and other shoreline crevices for nearly three years now to rid it of a mucky, acrid and filamentous algae called Lyngbya. The work entails soggy, backbreaking labor to restore the luster of the bays white-sand bottom and to unclog some of the spring vents bubbling with fresh water. The causes of the Lyngbya infiltration are not settled yet, but officials believe a combination of pollutants collude to let the algae thrive. And then the unsightly algae ran into the persistence and imagination of Art Jones in 2009 a then-recent transplant to the city.

Orlando standoff lasts 11 hoursORLANDO Central Florida authorities evacuated nearly two dozen homes after a suspect wanted for attempted murder barricaded himself inside a home, leading to an 11-hour standoff. Orange County Sheriffs deputies arrived at an Orlando area home Friday to serve James Hubert Stewart with an arrest warrant. When deputies arrived, two people outside the home ran inside. Multiple subjects were inside the residence. Authorities evacuated dozens of homes as they tried to coax 29-yearold Stewart outside of the home. Eventually, everyone left the house except Stewart. Authorities said they eventually found him hiding in an air handler inside the home.Disney worker charged with sexual batteryORLANDO A Walt Disney World custodian has been arrested on a sexual battery charge after a coworker said he attacked her in a closet at work. Authorities said Friday that the attack by Gideon Hunte on an Epcot worker occurred Thursday while the theme park was open. WFTV in Orlando reported that the woman told investigators that she yelled and resisted Hunte until he let her ago. She then ran to a supervisor who called authorities. Hunte was being held without bail at the Orange County Jail. A Disney spokeswoman didnt return an email inquiry but said in a statement to WFTV that Hunte has been placed on unpaid leave. The statement said Disney has zero tolerance for such behavior.19-year-old fatally shot outside apartmentDANIA BEACH Authorities are searching for a suspect after a 19-year-old was fatally shot and another man was injured outside a South Florida apartment building. Broward Sheriffs authorities say they responded to an apartment building in Dania Beach on Friday night after reports of gunshots. They found Brandon Jones, of Fort Lauderdale, and another victim on the ground in front of the building. Both had been shot. Jones was later pronounced dead. The unidentified victim was hospitalized and is expected to recover. Detectives are temporarily withholding his name and location for his protection. Detectives are looking for the shooter. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 954-493TIPS (8477) or go online at browardcrimestoppers.org. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $3,000 for information that leads to an arrest.911 call released in Jupiter childs killingWEST PALM BEACH Authorities have released a 911 call made in the case of a Jupiter woman accused of killing her ex-partners 2-yearold daughter. Kimberly Lucas appeared in court Friday. The 40-yearold woman is accused of firstdegree murder in the death of the girl and attempted first-degree murder of the childs 10year-old brother, who police say was drugged. The 911 call was placed by the boy, who can be heard crying on the tape. He tells dispatchers he took a pill to help me sleep and that he feels dizzy. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Lucas, who was considered a second mother to the children. She remains held without bond. The Palm Beach Post reported shes next due in court in November.Arbitrator: Deadly shooting justifiedMIAMI An arbitrator said a Miami police officer who fatally shot an unarmed man in 2011 used justifiable force and should be reinstated. Reynaldo Goyos was fired in 2013 after the Miami Police Departments Firearms Review Board issued its finding. The shooting happened in 2011 as Goyos and a multiagency task force targeted gang members. According to reports, Goyos approached the suspects vehicle and opened fire after seeing a black object on Travis McNeil. McNeil died and Kareem Williams was injured. It was the seventh fatal shooting of a young black man over an eight-month period, raising tensions in inner-city neighborhoods. A review board found Goyos used unjustified deadly force at the time. But the Fraternal Order of Police sent out a statement Saturday noting the state attorney has since found the officers actions legally justified. An independent arbitrator concurred and ruled Goyos should be reinstated.From wire reports Associated PressROMULUS, Mich. A 78-year-old Florida woman tried to fly on an international trip from Detroit Metropolitan Airport with almost $41,000 in cash hidden inside her girdle, bra and carry-on bag, federal authorities said. A complaint filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Detroit said the Clearwater woman was trying to board a flight April 2 to the Philippines with her daughter. She initially said she had $200 in cash but submitted a form declaring she had $1,200, prompting questions. During a search, Customs and Border Protection officers found $8,000 in wallets in her carry-on bag, $4,000 sewn into a cloth pouch and nearly $1,000 in envelopes, according to the complaint. She then told them she had $3,000 in her blouse and $2,000 sewn into the strap of her bra. Officers continued to search and said they found about $21,000 in her girdle. The woman told authorities she recently sold her home for $120,000, wired some money to the Philippines and had planned to carry a portion of the money with her. She stated that she did not wire the proceeds to the Philippines this time because she thought it was safer to carry the money, according to the complaint. Federal law requires travelers to declare if they are carrying more than $10,000. The woman hasnt been charged, but the government in the forfeiture complaint said it wants to keep the money.The Detroit Newsreported details of the request Friday. Federal court records dont list a lawyer for the woman. The Associated Press left a message Saturday seeking comment from her at a telephone listing in Florida.A2SUNDAY, AUGUST10, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESTATE The patient and any other person responsible for payment has a right to refuse to pay, cancel paymen t or be reimbursed for payment for any other service, examination or treatment which is performed as a result of and within 72 hours of respondin g to the advertisement for the free, discounted fee, or reduced fee service, examination or treatment. *Codes 0210 & 0272 are chargeable codes & eli gible from insurance cleaning. 352-684-1274 7425 Spring Hill Dr., Spring Hill 352-794-6139 6824 Gulf to Lake Hwy., Crystal River WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SERVING YOU AT ANY OF OUR LOCATIONS. 000IWXK Now Offering: Coupon Required.

PATFAHERTY Staff writerSalt air, wild scenery, fishing smells, conversations and the hum of boat motors still fill the air at Twin Rivers Marina. The business has been a Citrus County landmark and community for boaters for nearly half a century. Located where the Salt and the Crystal rivers meet, the marina is conveniently remote. It lies at the end of North Seabreeze Point, a short scenic drive off Fort Island Trail. The site maintains its aura of the areas pre-development past and remains a testament to the local importance of saltwater recreation. But with a new owner, the marina is being positioned to better serve the needs of todays busy boaters. And convenience is at the top of the list. Area businessman Joe Brown bought the business in February, cementing his decades-long love affair with Crystal River and boating on the Gulf of Mexico. Weve already started some major improvements around here, said bookkeeper Amanda Baldwin. We redid all the concrete and are looking to more upgrades. We offer boat storage, we have wet slips, the inside dry and the outside, she said, noting the lines of trailers for the nearby public ramps. You dont have to fight the boat ramps and we have quick access to the channel. You can store your boat here, you dont have to haul it, she added. Once an owner trailers their boat in, the marina staff takes over, putting it in and taking it out of the water as needed with one of the forklifts. Its an aspect that Brown, a longtime customer of the marina and part-time local resident, plans to build on, while maintaining the friendly ambiance regular users have come to enjoy. Ive been coming to this marina since the s, he said. We are very sensitive to our unique surroundings. My intent is to maximize the marina experience and minimize its impact. Brown is an avid angler who made news two years ago when he rescued four crewmembers when their boat overturned about 75 miles out in the gulf in 6to 10-foot waves. He envisions the marina customer experience for someone who stores a boat as being able to call up ahead of time, have their craft in the water, oil checked and fuel topped off, with bait, ice and refreshments on board ready to go. Baldwin, who too has a family history of using the marina, pointed out Twin Rivers has a 35-ton travel lift, four grades of fuel, a ships store, bait, a full service department and security cameras. She said they have rental boats available that can be taken out to the Gulf. The marina is home dock to several tour companies and an ice cream boat, and is a popular spot for watching sunsets. It also sponsors an annual fishing tournament and a youth soccer team. For more information, visit www.twinriversmarina.com. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924.

PETERSBURG A toddler is recovering in the hospital from severe wounds after authorities say he was bitten by the family dog. St. Petersburg Police say the family was staying at a hotel Friday night when their 11-year-old mixed-breed Husky attacked their 18-month old son, severely biting him in the face. The child is hospitalized in stable condition, but has significant facial wounds. The dog has been place in the custody of Pinellas County Animal Control. The disposition of the dog will be handled by animal control officials. The family told police the dog is a longtime family pet and has never shown any aggressive behavior toward the child before. The family is from Massachusetts, but is staying at a hotel while they purchase a home in Florida.Men struck by cars while lying in roadwayTAMPA One man has died and another is seriously injured after authorities say they were struck by two cars while lying in the middle of a southwest Florida road. Florida Highway Patrol officials said Stacey Arthur Butcher, 42, of New Port Richey and Christopher Momier, 24, of Gibsonton, were lying on an unlit road Friday night wearing dark clothes.

And Daniel Radcliffe braced himself once again. The 25-year-old British star faces consistent and persistent questions from fans and the press about whether hell return to the character that he spent much of his childhood playing. Rowlings story of a 34-year-old Potter posted online was not going to help matters. I go, OK, thank you Jo. Ill be answering questions about this, Radcliffe said in a recent interview. She cant help it. She wrote me 10 years older and people are still asking me if Im going to be doing it. Hes 10 years older than I am in this story, so its really not even a hypothetical at the moment. I would obviously never say never, because thats a foolish thing to say, but I would have to think long and hard before I ever went back to anything. Radcliffe was at Comic-Con International in San Diego promoting one of his two upcoming films, the darkly comic horror tale Horns. In it, he plays a man accused of killing his girlfriend who grows horns that prompt people around him to reveal their darkest secrets. The actor is used to hearing unexpectedly personal stories from strangers. Fans tend to overshare some of their troubles when they get a chance to meet the man who played the famously scarred boy wizard in eight movies from 2001 to 2011. Being a celebrity who is associated with something that was very much part of peoples childhoods and very close to a lot of peoples hearts, yeah, you get people who do come up to you, he said. And Im always happy to talk to people. I never mind hearing something deeply personal, but I always do think, Should you be telling me this? Radcliffe notes that soap opera actors face a similar phenomenon, since theyre in the homes of audiences so regularly. Still, he doesnt want to be the sole person hearing about tough times. I often say, you should talk to somebody else who you can have regular conversations with about this, Radcliffe said. Horns, directed by Alexandre Aja, is set for release Oct. 31. Radcliffes other new film, the romantic comedy What If, opened this weekend.

year, we have a campaign chair. Its usually just one person or a married couple. They rally the community together to get people involved and encourage people to find their place in supporting this initiative. They are a cheerleader for us. Meek said it takes a community uniting together to make a difference in the daily lives of residents. We had a woman call the other day to say that she is completely off of food stamps, Meek said. How awesome is that? With that, the idea of Driving Change Together with competitive professional car dealers serving at the campaign chairs was born. They have a lot of respect for each other, which is neat to see, Meek said. Most of the time you think of car dealers as supremely competitive, but they really respect each other. And above all, they love this community and their hearts lie here. They want to help people in a powerful way, she continued. It is so great to see such competitive people willing to put all of that aside. That just tells a lot about their compassion for the community. Why have they linked arms? They tell the community its for you:Jewel and Steve Lamb, owners of Crystal AutomotiveRallying all of the automobile dealers together is exciting. There is just a lot of support for our community with us joining together, Steve Lamb said. The aura of competitiveness is more a myth than anything. Its the competitive spirit that makes us who we are. Thats why we like being involved in the community. We like getting stuff done. For us to get together as a group to get stuff done is very exciting.Shane Bryant, vice president of Nick Nicholas Ford-LincolnI have lived here since I was 8 years old. The dealership I have been a part of for 20-something years. And I see a lot of the needs throughout our community and county, Bryant said. United Way is a good way to see that those needs are addressed. They arent just one entity but they help support so many entities and that allows us to be involved with all of them in one way or another. Each one of us has been in the community our whole lives. Yes, we might be competitors on a business level, but this is not business, we want to help the community. We are joining forces on a personal level. We think if we put all of our forces together we could do well for our residents.Paul Arduser, service manager of Citrus KIAWe believe in the cause and want to join in to help, and hopefully this will inspire other local businesses to do the same, Arduser said. We want to show everyone that not only do we compete as retail competitors, but we can all unite and come together as one for this cause.Chad Halleen, vice president of Love HondaUnited Way has been a part of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County and I knew I wanted to be a part of the campaign chairs group. It was an automatic Yes when I was asked, Halleen said. We just want to move forward with the community. All the dealers have one goal for the community: To make it better. If the community doesnt grow ... then we arent going to grow. We all have the same goals of improving our community for our residents. April Phillips and Russ Baldner Eagle Buick GMCWe are so privileged to stand alongside our fellow dealers as a united team, Phillips and Baldner wrote in a United Way brochure. The United Way sets an example for all of us; working together can bring about real change.

Associated PressMIAMI Henry Stone, a fixture on the R&B and disco scene who was instrumental in the careers of Ray Charles, James Brown and KC & the Sunshine Band, has died. He was 93. Stone, a co-founder of the famed TK Records, died Thursday of natural causes at a Miami-area hospital, the funeral home Riverside Gordon Memorial Chapels confirmed. Stone opened up a recorddistribution business and recording studio in South Florida in 1948 and within a few years recorded his first artist, a pianist-singer from the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind who would later become the legendary Ray Charles. Stones hits were on TK Records, which he co-founded with Steve Alaimo in 1972, and similar labels he founded. They included: Get Down Tonight, Thats the Way (I Like It), Shake, Shake, Shake (Shake Your Booty), Im Your Boogie Man for KC & the Sunshine Band and Ring My Bell for Anita Ward, The Miami Heraldreported. Stone released Otis Williams and the Charms No. 1 R&B hit, Heart of Stone, in 1954. He was also instrumental in signing James Brown and the Famous Flames, earning the hit, Please, Please, Please, which topped the R&B in 1956. TK went bankrupt in 1981, but Stone pursued his passion with other production companies.

And he says if he wins, the public shouldnt expect an Adams clone on the county commission. Ive been successful at making my own decisions in life and being a leader, not a follower, he said. Kitchen, who is taking a second shot at county commission after losing to incumbent Dennis Damato two years ago, told a reporter he didnt appreciate innuendo that he is colluding with anyone. Im an honest person, Kitchen, the former Crystal River mayor, said. I get sick of getting my credibility maligned over and over and over. Carnahan called on Strange to stop the negative campaign against Webb and Kenney. He needs to stop and get positive, Carnahan said. Would I like him to stop? Yes, I would. Thats not who Scott Carnahan is. Adams didnt return a phone call seeking comment. Strange, who has previously hung up on a reporter calling about his involvement in the campaign, didnt return a phone call, either. Grant said he supports both Carnahan and Kitchen because they oppose the same things he opposes the fire services fee, Port Citrus and additional taxes. Im out telling everyone I can to vote for Scott Carnahan and Ron Kitchen, he said. As for some grand conspiracy, its not happening. Citrus County Hospital Board chairwoman Debbie Ressler is another supporter of Carnahan and Kitchen, with financial contributions to both from her husband, Tom. They both are very strong businessmen, very successful, Ressler said. They believe government should be run like a business and I believe government should be run like a business. Kitchen is owner and president of Barbaron Inc., which designs and builds golf courses, including projects at Skyview in Citrus Hills and in Black Diamond. Carnahan owned a building supply company that carried his name, which he sold in 2011. Today he is a business consultant. Ressler and Grant both said the first time they met Carnahan was at a fundraising event for the candidate. Ressler said she spoke with people in Crystal River who know Carnahan and liked what she heard. She has a connection with Carnahan and Adams in one respect: Ressler is an administrator on their Facebook pages, though both the commissioner and candidate say they approve everything before it appears online. Im a Facebook guru, Ressler said. Kitchen raised a little more than $7,000 for his campaign two years ago. As of Friday, he had raised $25,195, thanks in large part to a new law that bumps the maximum individual contribution from $500 to $1,000. He has 13 contributions of $1,000, and every single one also gave a like amount to Carnahans campaign, although Carnahan has 19 $1,000 contributors. Grant and his law firm combined for $3,000 in contributions to each candidate. One of his clients, Realtor Diana Marcum, donated $4,000 in individual and corporate contributions to both Carnahan and Kitchen. Marcums contributions came in June just days after she and Grant attended a county commission meeting when commissioners voted to ban automobile tent sales. Grant, who spoke unsuccessfully on Marcums behalf before the commission, said he had nothing to do with Marcum choosing to support Carnahan and Kitchen. Marcum, who owns vacant property behind the Olive Garden restaurant on S.R.44 and leases it to out-of-town automobile dealers, said in a brief phone interview that she has known Carnahan for years and supports both candidates because of their business background. She hung up when a reporter asked about the timing of the contribution coming close to the county commission vote that went against her. Carnahan is convinced Marcums contributions were based on the reasoning she stated. Ive been doing business with Diana for years, he said. My relationship with Diana Marcum is through Scott Carnahan and not through Bill Grant, I promise you that. Strange and Commissioner Adams are onagain, off-again business partners. Together they once owned the property on County Road486 near Croft Avenue that sports the sign which reads, Eternity in hell is a long time. As for Grants relationship with Adams, a few months ago he told county commissioners that he was representing Adams in the Oak Village stub-out issue. Grant said he wanted to make sure Adams was able to vote on the residents request to vacate public ownership of the stubout, which Adams did. Asked the impact that Adams, Strange and Grant have had on his campaign, Kitchen said: None. As for Strange, whose Save Citrus County political committee has sponsored the ads targeting Webb and Kenney, Kitchen said he knows nothing about it. My personal opinion is they, in some way or another, think theyre helping me, Kitchen said. I know Mr. Strange appears to not like these two people. As for the ads themselves, Kitchen said: If its perceived to be negative advertising, Im not crazy about negative advertising. I would always rather see positive things than negative. Carnahan said Stranges campaigning strategy does not reflect his values. I would not do that to anybody. Thats just not who I am, he said. Stop doing it. Let the voters decide on the records that are out there.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.A6SUNDAY, AUGUST10, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Thursday, Aug. 14, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. Ocala Quality Inn 3434 SW College Rd.

and I just want to work, Jones said. He said it was during a Leadership Citrus session in 2009 that he suggested the idea of using a rake and pure grit and determination to begin lifting tons of Lyngbya from the bay bottom. I just like doing things. People were saying They ought to come in here and fix this and I said, Why dont we do it? Thats leadership, right? Initially Jones said he began by just raking the area of the bay near his home, but the idea grew and, in 2011, One Rake at a Time was born after the Kings Bay Rotary Club adopted it as one of its projects. Thus began a flurry of volunteer clean-up efforts in the Hunters Spring, Cedar Cove (the area near Charlies restaurant), Stoney Point and Three Sisters Springs. To date, Jones said 2,500 tons of Lyngbya has been removed from the bay by his project, and with some intermittent aid of a mechanical harvester. Hand-raking has been very effective against Lyngbya. Look at all the nice vegetation that is coming back after we pick up all this mucky, nasty stuff, Jones said recently during a cleanup at Cedar Cove. On that day, Jones, along with a young crew of paid workers, floated two pontoon barges laden with Lyngbya to be loaded on a truck belonging to Jake Muetzel to be ferried to a nearby dump site. I pay them $200 for a full barge, but the grant money that has been paying for this is running out next week and unless we get more funding, the paid cleanup will have to stop. We have been here every week since 2011 removing Lyngbya, Jones added. Jones work has been lauded and recognized by state and national officials and at least another spring shed area Weeki Wachee has been replicating similar work. In the Hunters Spring and Cedar Cove areas, years of the algae removal are becoming evident. The shimmer of the bays bottom and crystal-clear waters have returned in spots. Here in Cedar Cove, when we started, the water was so dark you couldnt see anything. Now, the tour boat operators are bringing their groups here and for the children to swim. That is nice, Jones said. The area near Hunters Spring Park is also noticeably clearer. Muetzel said that used to be the case all over the bay when he was growing up. Ten years ago, at the main vent at King Spring, there is a plaque there that is like 20feet down, but you could read it. Now you cant see anything, Muetzel said. I just want to see this place cleaned. I want clear water and I will do whatever to help, he said.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com.

the Legislature wanting to do more. But the Legislature made the decision ... not to go forward. A spokesman for Scott said Saturday that the governors position has not changed, but emphasized he believes Florida should only expand Medicaid if it does not cost state taxpayers. The governor often thinks about Florida families who deal with the challenges his family faced growing up ... Gov. Scott wants to provide the most people possible with access to high quality, affordable care, Scott spokesman Greg Blair said in a statement. Earlier this week, Crist, a Republican-turnedDemocrat, said he would work with the GOP-controlled Legislature and urge them to forget about the party affiliations and do whats right for our fellow Floridians ... we can get it done and we owe it to them. Crist also said hed use any tools at his disposal, adding hes not afraid to use the budget line-item veto if necessary. Expanding Medicaid has also been politically divisive between the Sunshine State and the federal government. Scott needed approval from federal health officials to expand a Medicaid privatization program. Lengthy negotiation ensued. Some experts predicted that if the feds approved the program that Scott would come out in favor of Medicaid expansion a tenet of Obamas health law. The feds approved statewide privatization, a victory for state Republicans, but Medicaid expansion was virtually a non-starter during this past Legislative session. Scotts spokesman lauded Floridas Medicaid privatization program as historic and said Medicaid grew at three and a half times our general revenue and Charlie Crist did nothing to help make it more sustainable when he was in office.A8SUNDAY, AUGUST10, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESTATE 000IX6H Minimum charges apply.

Associated PressSTOCKLAND, Ill. A nofrills concrete bridge on the edge of Stockland, Illinois, represents just the kind of headache the nations soybean farmers hope a multimilliondollar campaign and a little creative thinking will cure. The 50-foot concrete span and hundreds like it in soybeangrowing states cant handle the weight of fully loaded grain trucks thatll be bringing an expected record harvest to grain elevators this fall. That means those who use the often small, obscure bridges will have to make more trips and spend more money. Hauling soybeans to Stockland Grain Co. from the west means crossing the Stockland bridge. Its restricted to 29 tons, or 58,000 pounds; a fully loaded grain trucks weighs 80,000 pounds. Basically, its probably doubling the freight (cost), Stockland Grain owner Sonny Metz inger said from his business about 100miles south of Chicago. Since farmers profits are dropping this year alongside crop prices, infrastructure needs have come into sharper focus. Most soybeans wind up on a rail car or barge to reach their ultimate destination, but just about all of them leave the farm in trucks that roll over small bridges. This matters a lot all of the sudden, said Scott Irwin, a professor of agricultural marketing at the University of Illinois. Soybeans are one of the countrys largest and most valuable crops $41.8billion in 2013 and are grown in about 30 states for animal feed, food additives and other uses. That money is of particular importance in rural counties in states such as Iowa and Illinois, the two largest producers. But those counties have small, often dwindling populations and the bridges are lightly used outside of hauling crops to market, which makes them a tough sell to state and local policymakers. National and state soybean trade groups are spendingmillions $1.5million in Illinois over three years, for example to make their case and present solutions beyond asking government agencies in charge of the bridges for money that they often dont have. The reality is we dont have the funding available to upgrade every single mile of that infrastructure and every single one of those bridges, said Mike Steenhoek, executive director of the Soy Transportation Coalition, a national soybean group based in Iowa thats working on the initiative. The trade groups believe a bridges importance shouldnt be measured by how many vehicles use it but by the value of the product they carry. Even at Fridays depressed price of less than $11 a bushel, a full truckload of 900 bushels of soybeans would sell for close to $9,900. But, according to Irwin, cutting the weight a farmers truck can carry by 25percent per load might mean spending an extra $1,300 on fuel per 1,000 acres of crop. The Illinois Soybean Association is working to pick a handful of bridges in each county to focus attention and resources on and, it hopes, present creative potential solutions, according to Scott Sigman, who works on transportation issues for the association. Peoria County board member Sharon Williams believes association-funded traffic pattern studies will help. Which bridges are critical, how far in the future (do) we need to replace bridges? It gives us a clear look, she said. The county has an urban area with about 200,000 people and beyond that tens of thousands of acres of farmland. Priorities in those two areas can widely vary, county Engineer Amy McLaren said, and the county has limited money about $2million a year for its almost 200 bridges, any one of which could run up to $1.5million to replace. Steenhoek is optimistic some of the farmers wishes can be granted by removing what he says may be unneeded weight limits. The Soy Transportation Coalition recently covered part of the Iowa Department of Transportations $35,000 cost for relatively new technology to check bridge capacities. Three bridges with weight limits were found to be strong enough for the department to lift those limits, Steenhoek said. The bridge-testing technology, which Steenhoek said his group will help finance in other states, is an improvement on traditional inspections, according to John Frauenhoffer, a veteran inspector and director of the American Society of Civil Engineers Board of Direction. You may wire up a bridge and find out that (the weight restriction) is true, he said. But then again, you may find out that it has a much higher capability. Wayne Humphries has avoided a bridge in southeast Iowa that cant handle heavy farming equipment for 40 years. It will soon be replaced at a cost of $897,000, according to Louisa County Engineer Larry Roehl.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST10, 2014 A9 Discover Photo Contest We are looking for your exciting, interesting and unique Citrus County photos.

The U.S. produced 3.3billion bushels of soybeans in 2013. The following is breakdown of the major soybean-growing states, their 2013 production in bushels and where the bulk of their crops are transported to (inor out-of-state use or foreign exports): Illinois: 460,600,000, in-state use.

Associated PressArmy Staff Sgt. Travis Mills and his team from the 82nd Airborne were checking out reports of improvised explosive devices in Afghanistan when one detonated underneath him. His right arm and leg disintegrated. His other leg dangled and his remaining wrist was shredded. Mills eventually lost all four limbs. These days, hes making it his mission to help other wounded warriors, hosting a camp for them in Maine and traveling the country as a motivational speaker. Hey, Im wounded. I have scars. But I dont need a violin playing behind me with sad music to make me feel like a sob story, he said. Get on with life. On Saturday, Mills showed hes getting on with his life in a big way by jumping from an airplane along with the wife of Maine Gov. Paul LePage, first lady Ann LePage, with a parachute team to raise money for a veteran center and museum in Fort Kent. Mills said he wants to help others, especially veterans whove suffered debilitating injuries. Thats the reason for the camp, the fundraiser and his visits with injured veterans and victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. He doesnt dwell on the day he nearly died, but he isnt shy about discussing it. He and fellow soldiers re-enacted the scene for a documentary, Travis: A Soldiers Story. Mills, who was on his third deployment, said April 10, 2012, started as a routine foot patrol. The area had been checked twice for land mines, but the improvised explosive device buried in the ground was made from glass and plastic instead of metal to evade detection. It exploded when he dropped his backpack. Conscious of his injuries, he barked at a medic to help others, thinking he was a goner, before he was eventually sedated. He awoke four days later on his 25th birthday to learn he had no limbs. The former 6-foot-3, 230pound athlete spent 19 months in rehabilitation, and his recovery has been remarkable. Hes been snowboarding and skiing in Colorado. He jumped previously from an airplane with the Army Golden Knights parachute team. He drives a Ford F-250 truck. The Vassar, Michigan, native is also building a new life in Maine with wife Kelsey and daughter Chloe. Next month, a new home adapted to meet his needs will be finished in Manchester. Its being built by a foundation established by Hollywood actor and director Gary Sinise. Ann LePage met Mills after learning of his efforts to create a camp for wounded veterans and their families. She said she couldnt turn Mills down when he challenged her to join him on the jump even though shes afraid of heights.A10SUNDAY, AUGUST10, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE NATION ADVERTISING For information about how your business can advertise on this page please call 352-563-5592.

Associated PressALBANY, Ga. Jurors at the nations first federal criminal trial stemming from a deadly outbreak of foodborne illness are learning a disconcerting fact: Americas food safety largely depends on the honor system. Witnesses say Stewart Parnell and others at Peanut Corporation of America knowingly shipped salmonella-tainted products, and that they sent customers lab results from other clean batches rather than wait for tests to confirm their products were free of deadly bacteria. Defense lawyers correctly noted for the jurors that salmonella tests arent even required by federal law. Parnell and his two codefendants face long prison sentences if convicted of knowingly shipping the contaminated peanut productsli nked to a nationwide salmonella outbreak that killed nine people and sickened 714 across 43 states in 2008 and 2009. Their plant in rural Blakely, Georgia, was shut down and the company went bankrupt. Long after consumers ate contaminated peanut butter, ice cream, energy bars and other products, the outbreak prompted one of the largest food recalls in U.S. history. But Stewart Parnell, his brother and food broker, Michael Parnell, and quality assurance manager Mary Wilkerson arent charged with killing anybody. In fact, prosecutors agreed not to mention the death toll to the jurors. The 76-count indictment instead accuses the Parnell brothers of defrauding customers that used Peanut Corporations contaminated products as ingredients. Stewart Parnell and Wilkerson are charged with concealing information from federal investigators. Only some customers such as Kelloggs required the plant to ensure its shipments were salmonella-free. If they didnt require it, it did not get tested, Samuel Lightsey, who managed the Georgia plant during the outbreak, told jurors Friday. Food and Drug Administration investigators ultimately discovered that lab tests had showed contamination in the plants chopped nuts, peanut butter or peanut paste 12 times during the two years before the outbreak. FDA inspector Janet Gray walked the jury through documents showing at least eight of those salmonella-tainted lots were shipped to customers anyway. There is no legal requirement for testing at all for salmonella, Tom Bondurant, Stewart Parnells defense lawyer, told jurors during opening statements Aug. 1. There wasnt then, and theres not now. Thats true and it could be a problem for prosecutors in the case, said Jaydee Hanson of the Center for Food Safety. But defense lawyers have a problem of their own and that goes back to the honor system. The problem is that the company committed bigtime fraud, Hanson said. Public outcry over the peanut case and several other outbreaks of food borne illness led Congress to pass the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2011, which was supposed to give the FDA more resources and enforcement power. Three years later, most of its rules have not been published, and the FDA still doesnt require that products be free of salmonella when shipped, said Hanson. His organization sued the FDA and won a federal consent decree ordering the agency to implement the law by next year. Meanwhile, the FDA lacks the resources to regularly inspect food producers, and when outbreaks happen, they largely depend on their goodwill to find the source. FDA investigator Bob Neligan testified that when he first arrived at the Georgia plant on Jan. 9, 2009, he immediately asked for any information or records related to positive salmonella tests. Lightsey told inspectors that the plants only brush with salmonella had turned out to be a false-positive test, Neligan said, and Stewart Parnell offered no further information. Records are voluntary, Neligan told the jury. It has been my experience in my 25 years (with FDA) that, when there is a concern regarding a nationwide food-borne illness, a firm is usually more than willing to hand over as many records as they can to resolve the issue quickly. But in this case, it took five days of pressing before Lightsey said there had been three confirmed tests for salmonella, Neligan said, and only when investigators repeatedly asked for more information did he reveal two others. He said it took a rare FDA order demanding two full years of production, shipping and microbial testing records within 24 hours to come up with the rest. Wanted: Robber with fondness for hatsMINEOLA, N.Y. Police in New York are on the hunt for a prolific bank robber who wears many hats. Police say the man donned a range of wacky headpieces as he committed eight bank robberies in Nassau County over the course of 2 1/2 months ending July 23. Surveillance photos show the robber wearing a floppy white hat at one bank. At another, he accessorized with a baseball hat that had a picture of President Barack Obama on it. And at another, he decided on a hat with a long wig attached. They say the stickup artist typically gives tellers a note threatening violence and demanding cash.Police arrest winner of eating contestELIZABETH CITY, N.C. A North Carolina man celebrated out-eating some police officers, only to find out that he couldnt outrun them. The Camden County Sheriffs Office had been looking for 24-year-old Bradley Herbert Hardison of Elizabeth City in connection with two break-ins. Authorities arrested Hardison on Wednesday, one day after he won the adult division of a doughnut-eating contest at the Elizabeth City Police Departments National Night Out Against Crime. Hardison ate eight doughnuts in two minutes, beating a group that included local police officers and firefighters. Hardison is also charged in Pasquotank County with felony larceny and breaking and entering.Bots flagged Ebola before authoritiesBOSTON The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is focusing a spotlight on an online tool run by experts in Boston that flagged a mystery hemorrhagic fever in forested areas of southeastern Guinea nine days before the World Health Organization formally announced the epidemic. HealthMap uses algorithms to scour tens of thousands of social media sites, local news, government websites, infectious-disease physicians social networks and other sources to detect and track disease outbreaks. Sophisticated software filters irrelevant data, classifies the relevant information, identifies diseases and maps their locations with the help of experts. It shows some of these informal sources are helping paint a picture of whats happening thats useful to these public health agencies, HealthMap co-founder John Brownstein said HealthMap is operated by a group of 45 researchers, epidemiologists and software developers at Boston Childrens Hospital. The tool was introduced in 2006 with a core audience of public health specialists, but that changed as the system evolved and the public became increasingly hungry for information during the swine flu pandemic. HealthMap generates information that includes locations of specific outbreaks and tracks new cases and deaths. The system is also capable of logging public sentiment.From wire reportsNATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST10, 2014 A11 DUNNELLON 489-7353 I INVERNESS 860-1037 I CRYSTAL RIVER 795-8600 I HOMOSASSA 621-7700 000IXE2 $ 100 OFF Termidor Treatment with 10 Year Warranty Restrictions may apply.

In Hawaii, a tale of two islandsHONOLULU Tourists in Oahu and other popular parts of Hawaii got back to their beach vacations and residents lined up to vote in primary elections Saturday, a day after Tropical Storm Iselle swept through the islands without widespread disaster. But a large, rural swath of the Big Island has spent more than 24 hours without electricity and is struggling with downed trees blocking roads. Iselle made landfall early Friday over the lower Puna region in the isolated southeastern part of the island, bringing down heavy rain, unleashing violent winds and toppling trees as Hurricane Julio lingered hundreds of miles off the coast. The storm was expected to pass roughly 160 miles northeast of the islands at its closest point early Sunday and linger near the state into Monday.Teen arrested in 6-year-olds deathBREMERTON, Wash. A 17-year-old was arrested Saturday in the death and sexual assault of a 6-yearold girl whose body was found near the Washington state mobile home park she vanished from last weekend, authorities said. The boy was arrested without incident by deputies and FBI agents at his home in the same Bremerton-area mobile home park, Kitsap County sheriffs Detective Earl Smith said at a news conference. The Washington state crime lab made positive confirmation of the suspect through forensic evidence. Earlier in the week, the sheriffs office had collected DNA cheek swabs from dozens of nearby residents. Smith said Saturday that the boy was being interviewed and will be booked with second-degree murder, manslaughter and rape in the girls death. The FBIs Specialty Search Dogs Unit discovered the body of Jenise Wright on Thursday amid thick brush in a wooded area near the trailer park. Volunteer canine search teams had previously reported that their dogs had showed interest in a particular area. Jenise was last seen when she went to bed on the night of Aug. 2. Her parents waited a day before calling for help because they say the girl had wandered around the Steele Creek Mobile Home Park on her own in the past. Officials have said that there were no signs of forced entry at Jenises home and no indication she was taken from her room. Hundreds of people, including officers from 15 law enforcement agencies, searched for Jenise, went door to door at the mobile home park on the west side of Puget Sound, across from Seattle.

Anger grows over Ebola outbreakMONROVA, Liberia Riot police raced to quell a demonstration blocking Liberias busiest highway Saturday as an angry crowd protested the governments delays in collecting the bodies of Ebola victims. In Guinea, where the deadly Ebola outbreak emerged in March, health officials announced Saturday the country was closing its land borders with Liberia and Sierra Leone two of the countries where the killer virus has now spread and where deaths are mounting. The growing unease in Liberia, where nearly 300 people have died from the gruesome disease, raises the specter of social unrest. Several bodies had been lying by the roadside for two days in the central town of Weala, and no government agency had picked them up, residents said. The Ebola virus spreads through the bodily fluids of its victims and many in West Africa have fallen ill after touching corpses.Tour bus plummets into valley, killing 44BEIJING A tour bus on a highway in Tibet fell off a 30-foot cliff after crashing into an SUV and a pickup, killing 44 people and injuring 11 others, Chinas state media reported Sunday. The bus was carrying 50 people when it careened in mountainous southern Tibet on Saturday, the Xinhua News Agency said. Most of the passengers were from four Chinese provinces. There were four people in the SUV and a truck driver, but their condition was unclear. Tourism has been on the rise in the scenic Tibetan Plateau, where mountain roads are often treacherous, particularly in the summer rainy season. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressDisplaced boys from the Yazidi community wait Saturday at the entrance of the camp of Bajid Kandala as they look for family members they became separated from at Feeshkhabour town near the Syria-Iraq border in Iraq. The displacement of at least tens of thousands of Yazidis Kurdish speakers of an ancient Mesopotamian faith means yet another Iraqi minority has been peeled away as extremists continue their sweep of Iraq. Associated PressJERUSALEM Egyptian-brokered talks between Israel and Hamas on a new border deal for Gaza were thrown into doubt Saturday after senior officials said an Israeli team would not rejoin negotiations in Cairo unless rocket fire from Gaza stops. A day after the end of a temporary truce, crossborder attacks continued Saturday, though at a lower intensity than on most days in the past month of fighting. Gaza militants fired 28 rockets at Israel, the army said, while Israel struck about 50 targets in Gaza that it said were linked to militants, including mosques and homes. The indirect talks in Cairo which began earlier in the week with Egyptians shuttling between the Israeli and Palestinian delegations were meant to produce a sustainable cease-fire and new border arrangements for Gaza. Israel and Egypt have severely restricted trade and movement in and out of Gaza since the Islamic militant group Hamas seized the territory by force seven years ago. However, the gaps are wide, making it unlikely the two sides can reach a comprehensive deal envisioned by the international community, including an opening of Gazas borders and arrangements for the war-battered territorys reconstruction. Israel has said it will not open Gazas borders unless militant groups, including Hamas, disarm. Hamas has said handing over its weapons arsenal, which is believed to include several thousand remaining rockets, is inconceivable. Instead, one proposal circulated by the Egyptian mediators offered a minor easing of some of the restrictions, according to Palestinian negotiators who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not allowed to discuss internal deliberations with the media. It was not clear if this was an Egyptian or an Israeli proposal. The Palestinian negotiators said they rejected the ideas, insisting on a complete end to the blockade. The Palestinian team includes Hamas officials and representatives of Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, from whom Hamas had taken Gaza in 2007. The delegation agrees on the broader demands, despite some disagreements over tactics, such as whether to extend a three-day truce earlier this week, participants said. After the truce expired Friday morning, Gaza militants from factions other than Hamas resumed rocket fire. The Israeli delegation left Cairo on Friday morning, while the Palestinian team remained in the Egyptian capital. Palestinian negotiators had expected their Israeli counterparts to return Saturday evening, after the end of the Jewish Sabbath. However, senior Israeli officials said this was unlikely because of the rocket attacks from Gaza on Saturday. Associated PressSmoke rises in Gaza City on Saturday after an Israeli airstrike. A day after the end of a temporary truce, crossborder attacks continued Saturday. Gaza militants fired 28 rockets at Israel, the army said, while Israel struck about 50 targets in Gaza that it said were linked to militants, including mosques and homes. Gaza talks on hold; Israeli delegation stays home Associated PressKHAZER CAMP, IraqPresident Barack Obama justified the U.S. militarys return to fighting in Iraq Saturday by saying America must act now to prevent genocide, protect its diplomats and provide humanitarian aid to refugees trapped by Islamic State militants on a mountain ridge near the Syrian border. This is going to be a long-term project that wont end and cant succeed unless Iraqis form an inclusive government in Baghdad capable of keeping the country from breaking apart, Obama said at the White House. U.S. planes and drones launched four airstrikes on Islamic State forces Saturday as the militants fired indiscriminately on Yazidi civilians taking shelter in the Sinjar mountains, U.S. Central Command said. The strikes, which were spread out during the day, destroyed armored carriers and a truck, according to the Central Command statement. It was the third round of airstrikes against Islamic State forces by the U.S. military since they were authorized by Obama on Thursday. The military support also has been helping clear the way for aid flights to drop food and water to thousands of starving refugees in the Sinjar area. But the help comes too late for many of the religious minorities targeted for elimination by the Islamic State group, which swept past U.S.-trained and equipped Iraqi government forces in recent weeks and now controls much of Iraq. A delayed response by the Shiiteled government in Baghdad left Kurdish forces struggling to contain the Sunni extremists advances. With nowhere to go but uphill, Kurdish-speaking Yazidi refugees sought shelter in the mile-high Sinjar mountains. U.S., Iraqi and British cargo planes dropped tons of food, water, tents and other equipment to the refugees Friday and Saturday. Iraqs defense ministry released a video showing people in the Sinjar mountains rushing to collect food and water as the Iraqi governments fleet of C130 cargo planes dropped 20 tons of aid at a time. But at least 56 children have died of dehydration in the mountains, UNICEFs spokesman in Iraq, Karim Elkorany, told The Associated Press on Saturday. British officials estimated Saturday between 50,000 and 150,000 people could be trapped on the mountain. And Juan Mohammed, a local government spokesman in the Syrian city of Qamishli, told the AP that more than 20,000 starving Yazidis are fleeing across the border, braving gunfire through a tenuous safe passage that Kurdish Peshmerga forces are trying to protect. Other Yazidis have settled in refugee camps in Syria: so awful is their situation, they have sought safety in a country aflame in a civil war. Associated PressDONETSK, Ukraine Ukraines rebels are surrounded and ready to agree to a cease-fire to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe, the insurgents new leader said Saturday as conditions deteriorated in the rebel stronghold of Donetsk, artillery thundering through deserted streets. There was no immediate government response to the cease-fire statement. His motive for offering a cease-fire was not clear, but his comments could be aimed at increasing the pressure on Ukraine to allow in a Russian aid mission. Russia, which the Ukrainian government in Kiev and Western countries allege is supporting the rebels, has called repeatedly for a humanitarian mission into eastern Ukraine. But Kiev and the West suggest that could be just a pretext to send Russian forces into the region and say about 20,000 of them have gathered just across the border. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko issued a statement late Saturday saying that Ukraine is prepared to accept humanitarian assistance in eastern Ukraine. But he said the aid must come in without military accompaniment, it must pass through border checkpoints under Ukrainian control and the mission must be international in character. Artillery reverberated Saturday across Donetsk, home to nearly 1 million people before 300,000 fled the conflict. At least one person was killed and 18 wounded in shelling that hit about 30 apartment blocks Saturday in Donetsk, Donetsk city council spokesman Maxim Rovinsky said, adding that about 2,000 residential buildings had no electricity. City streets were nearly empty of cars and pedestrians and most stores were closed. Explosions were also heard near Donetsks airport.

Ploetz traveled the length of the river and created a Facebook page, called Paddle Off The War, to mark his trip and raise awareness of post-traumatic stress disorder.

GERALD HERBERT Associated PressVENICE, La.Two tours in Afghanistan took a toll on Joshua Ploetz. The former Marine was injured in a roadside bomb. He lost friends in combat, and later, to suicide.When the Winona, Minnesota, resident returned from the war eight years ago, he was coping with post-traumatic stress disorder, known as PTSD, the fallout from a minor stroke and other injuries. Adapting to civilian life proved difficult. Relationships failed, employment was hard to come by and, Ploetz said, he had an overwhelming feeling of being lost. This summer, Ploetz, 30, found direction and became an inspiration paddling a canoe the length of the Mississippi River. He launched on May 19 in Lake Itasca, Minnesota, where the river begins as a narrow creek lined with tall trees and bald eagle nests. The trip to the Gulf of Mexico would take him 71 days, about 49 of them spent paddling and the remainder resting. Ploetz said he needed every inch of the rivers more than 2,300 miles to paddle away the demons of war, or at least calm them a bit. It slows life down so you can appreciate things in life, he said. All you have to do is think about things that you may not want to think about, things that just appear or things that you should think about, and you kind of work things out in your head. The idea of the river journey was set in motion years ago by a chance encounter in a bar with Matthew Mohlke, author of Floating Down the Country, who told Ploetz about his book describing his solo canoe journey paddling the Mississippi in 1999. The seed was planted for his own river experience. He created a Facebook page, Paddle Off The War, to mark his trip. One of the most memorable moments was a riverside greeting by about 100 uniformed Marines and a live band when Ploetz rounded a bend in New Orleans. He made friends along the way, including Aleks Nelson, a kayaker from Duluth, Minnesota, who joined Ploetz about 10 days into the trip and paddled alongside him to the end. Ploetz brought a baton made from the handle of a stretcher that carried wounded troops in Afghanistan, which Ploetz called a symbol of hope for struggling veterans. He said he knows his own battle with PTSD isnt over, and may never be, but the river taught him how to cope. Youre going to have your troubles on the river, but just keep paddling, he said. Youll make it through it. His last morning on the river, he read scripture beneath a rainbow that peeked through puffy white clouds overhead. As he paddled his way into the Gulf of Mexico on July 28, he lifted his baton in triumph. The finish, he said, was bittersweet: I want to be done, but I want more river to paddle.

A14SUNDAY, AUGUST10, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: I have a dear friend who means a lot to me. Sherri moved in with her boyfriend, and as their relationship began to spiral downward, they started seeing other people while still living together. Some of this was done without the others knowledge, although each of them has been caught by the other on several occasions. Sherri has been pressuring her boyfriend to stay faithful to her and cease contact with his other girlfriends. But at the same time, she confides in me about her ongoing intimate relationships with several other men in her life, for which she feels no remorse or guilt. This is my problem: While she is sharing her happy escapades with me and admitting she has no intention of ending her other relationships, she asks me almost daily for advice on keeping him in line and making him stop seeing other girls. I have managed to remain diplomatic with my responses, saying, You both need to decide what works for you individually, and either agree to an open relationship or part ways. But she still bombards me daily for advice. She doesnt seem to grasp that relationships are a two-way street. I do not want to ruin an otherwise wonderful friendship by saying, Dont ask him to stop cheating if you are not willing to do the same, which is what I really want to say. Any suggestions on how to reply to her constant nagging for support and advice? Trying To Be a Good Friend Dear Friend: You dont ruin a friendship by being honest, as long as you arent unkind. When Sherri asks how to get her boyfriend to stop cheating, ask her whether she is willing to do the same. If she says no, tell her maybe this guy isnt the best match for her.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar.

After a volunteer has been with the Florida State Parks long enough to achieve 500 hours of volunteer service, they are awarded a Special Volunteer Annual Pass which will admit them and their family to any park in the state of Florida for a period of one year. Rails to Trails of the Withlacoochee, which is the support group for the Withlacoochee State Trail, had a total of seven volunteers that qualified for the award for the term of June 2014 to June 2015. They are Don Eastman, Al Harnage, Linda Harriman, Louis Nipper, Dennis Reiland, Rich Roussel and Heather Nagy. There were a few more that just missed the magic number, but they will get the pass next year if they continue working with us. Our thank-you goes out to all of these volunteers for such a great job. If you would like to become a volunteer and work toward this goal, please give me a call. I was working at the kiosk, installing the Adopt-A-Trail plaque at the Apopka Trailhead the other morning, when two ladies stopped to ask me if I was the one who writes the articles for theChronicle. They said they read them each month and that they walk the trail nearly every day. They further stated that, as they walked the trail, they always pick up trash if they see it. They related the story that as they walked south going toward Cooter Pond one day, they had to wait for an alligator to cross the trail to go into the woods on the other side. I have since learned there was an alligator nest in the woods there. I personally have never seen an alligator on the trail, but there have been others who have seen them in the lakes. You never know what you might see! If you are looking for someone to ride the trail with, then contact the Withlacoochee Bicycle Riders. They usually ride on Tuesdays and Thursdays in all different places with trips varying in distance and location. For more information, call Susan Staley at 262844-8469 or email her at 77@hotmail.com. You can also be put on the list and receive advance information on ride dates and length of rides. Be a friend on Facebook and follow on Twitter. This is a nice bunch of people to know and ride with. Our Wednesday work crew has been trimming and chipping for the past several weeks. With all of the rain, it is really hard to keep up with. The thing that we have the most trouble with is the vines. It is unbelievable how fast and thick they can grow. The crew has also been cutting and chipping up quite a few trees that were blown down. Maintenance of this type is a year-round job. Here is some safety information: 1) Remember that lightning and thunder can be very dangerous. Dont get caught out where you cannot get protection. 2) The weather is still hot and you should always have drinking water with you at all times. There are locations along the trail to stop and buy items, but it is always best to be prepared to make yourself safe. Thank you for all of comments and questions. I can be reached at 352527-3263.

Rails to Trails longtime volunteers earn passes Al HarnageRAILS TO TRAILS OF THE WITHLACOOCHEE Associated PressSAINT-JUST-LUZAC, France One sons conquering a waterslide. The others at the soccer pitch leading French, British and Dutch teammates to victory. Moms getting a massage. Dads poolside chatting to his new European neighbors and plotting a barbecue. You might not recognize this as a typical holiday in France. But this is how French families celebrate summers at 10,000 campsites nationwide, half of Europes total. Its rural France at its most flexible and relaxed. Options range from frugal to fabulous. Pack a tent, fly into any French airport, rent a car and head out. Dont like roughing it? Neither do most Europeans, who bring their designer dogs and satellite dishes and choose hard-roofed accommodation from mobile homes to fairy-tale cottages. The most exclusive options are booked months in advance. Ive gone the scruffy, improvised tentin-suitcase route three times, sampling sites from Normandy to the Pyrenees. This summer I took my partner and sons, aged 4 and 16, to three five-star camps. DOMAINE DES ORMES, Brittany, northwest France How flashy is this mega-camp? The resident owner takes helicopter day trips from his medieval chateau. Des Ormes (The Elms) has an 18-hole golf course, hotel with spa, equestrian center, three restaurants, pub, three pools (two outdoor with wave pool and slides, one indoor with steamy jungle plants), playgrounds, turf field for sports, lakes with fishing and paddle boats, and a treetop adventure course featuring log bridges and zip lines. Youd need a week to do it all, never mind nearby attractions like the Mont Saint-Michel monastery, walled pirate city of Saint-Malo and D-Day sites. Activities for young and old run several times daily. On our last night, hundreds gathered at the poolside amphitheater for a camp-produced film featuring time-traveling knights. The heroes found themselves in modern-day Les Ormes defending their castle, the owners residence and appeared live at the pool, with dozens of extras, to duel the villain. Amid eyebrow-singeing blasts of fire, the bad guy got chestkicked into the water. Fireworks ran 15 minutes. The boy on my shoulders loved it. Everyone else was impressed it happened at all. SUNELIA INTERLUDE, Ile de Re (Ile de Re), mid-Atlantic Coast A four-hour drive south, the Ile de Re feels exclusive, starting with a 16 euro ($21.50) bridge toll. Re is best seen by bicycle. The island, 30 kilometers (20 miles) long and 5 kilometers (3 miles) wide, is flat as a pancake with one of Europes most extensive bicycling networks. Paved paths run through salt beds and vineyards. Haggle at rental bike shops in one of the 10 villages, not at the campsite, to save money. Bikes can include child seats or canopied two-wheeled chariots for infants and pets. We camped beside the beach on Res sandy south coast. Nature here is schizophrenic: At high tide, the sands been swallowed up; six hours later, you can walk a quarter-mile (half kilometer) into the Atlantic, in bath-like calm, before your feet leave the muddy sand. Hundreds of parked bicycles and zero cars mark the beach entrances, flanked by surf schools and catamaran clubs. But the Interlude campsite, run by the Sunelia chain, proved a letdown despite its five stars. Its indoor complex of water-jet pools was overrun by children and had only one toilet. Its playground and sports facilities were cramped, some pathways were crumbling my younger boy got bloody knees falling in a pothole and its too-formal restaurant had short hours and extortionate prices. We stuck to ice cream and pizzas from the overpriced convenience store. Fortunately, three nearby villages of whitewashed homes with pastel shutters Le Bois Plage, with a daily market and old-school amusement rides, fortress-enclosed Saint Martin de Re, and yacht-filled port of La Flotte offered buckets of atmosphere, seaside dining and competitive superstores. Wildlife around our tent included feral kittens, rock-hopping lizards, and a praying mantis. We fed spiders to the ruthless, muscle-armed mantis and took it home as a prized family pet. SEQUOIA PARC, Poitou-Charente, southwest France An hours drive south past La Rochelle and Rochefort lies the oyster capital of France and, inland, one of the finest family campsites, Sequoia Parc, on the grounds of a grand chateau. A four-pool complex offers water slides for every age, even toddlers; a lazy river; and sundeck with non-alcoholic bar. At the camps mini-zoo, my younger son loved visiting goats, chickens, geese, a sheep, badger and alpaca. There are pony rides and weekly visits from a traveling circus featuring acrobats, jugglers, camels and stunt cats, including one who escaped under the bleachers. Nighttime entertainment beside a barnyard-converted pub and restaurant included a laughably unfunny mime and a live Shrek show that mesmerized my 4-year-old. His big brother bonded with other boys playing basketball, tennis and soccer, then hit the pools with his gaggle of Euro-lads. My partner indulged in massages, 60 euros ($80) an hour, while I enjoyed simple things: an herb garden for cooking, starling nests inside tropically gardened shower blocks, and chatting with neighbors over candlelit Bordeaux or Cognac. One warning: Sequoia Parc is flanked by marshland. If mosquitoes find you delicious, youre doomed.

Special to the ChronicleOn June 27, Citrus Countys nonprofit volunteer organization, Operation Welcome Home (OWH), joined nearly 200 military veterans, private citizens and family members at VFW Post 4252 in Hernando to honor two U.S. Army soldiers returning from service with Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. Sergeant Ryan Williams, a graduate of Crystal River High School, served with the 4th Infantry Division as a military policeman during two combat tours of duty and Spc. Chris Dryden served with the 101st Airborne Delta Company, 159th Combat Aviation Brigade and is also a graduate of Crystal River High School. Numerous veterans organizations and private citizens presented items to the soldiers as appreciation for their service. OWHs president and local veteran support advocate, Barbara Mills, presented a large basket filled with gift cards and other items that had been locally donated or purchased from fundraising activities. I am so fortunate to have this opportunity to honor these heroes, said Mills. But, let us not forget the families here tonight who suffered so much during the long deployments. They, too, are heroes. Retired Air Force Chief Master Sgt. John Stewart served as master of ceremonies for the event and noted an unusual situation throughout the nearly three-hour dinner and ceremony. Due to an equipment malfunction, there was virtually no air-conditioning in the facility despite outside temperatures approaching 96 degrees, said Stewart. Despite this unfortunate condition, I saw very few of those in attendance depart because of it and, in fact, the VFW post broke all recent records for the number of meals being served at similar functions. Of particular note, Stewart said, were some special citizens remaining during the unbearable heat, including local physician Dr. Jeremiah Hubbard with his family, the family of Dr. William Stalcup, Florida Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, Citrus County Commissioner Scott Adams and several candidates for local offices in upcoming elections. They are citizens completely devoted to the support of our veterans and it was very much appreciated. The public is invited to attend the next ceremony; details about future events can be found at www.operationwelcomehomeveterans.org. Also, OWH needs gift cards and monetary donations to allow the organization to continue its program. For more information, call Mills at 352-422-6236, or email Stewart at cornhusker69@yahoo.com.

Page A17SUNDAY, AUGUST 10, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE VETERANS C.J. RISAK CorrespondentTrying to explain why something happens to someone, and then attempting to clarify why it happened at that particular moment, often ends up as an exercise in abject futility.Sam Shotwell knows this all too well, having been a witness to both ends of the equation. A longtime Inverness resident who now resides in the Brentwood Assisted Living and Retirement Community in Lecanto, the 91-year-old Shotwell was fortunate enough to survive one of the bloodiest battles of World War II. He saw plenty of others who werent so lucky. Shotwell actually joined the U.S. Marine Corps seven months before Pearl Harbor was bombed. Logic would seem to dictate that Shotwell, who was in the infantry, would be among the first Americans to see action. But he wasnt. Shotwell would remain stateside, performing his duties as corporal of the guard at various Marine bases, until 1945. I knew it was coming, he said of his eventual combat duty, but I wasnt going to volunteer for it. When it did come and he finally did get shipped overseas, he would be involved in the bloodiest battle in the Pacific Theater during World War II Okinawa. More than 77,000 Japanese were killed or committed suicide (kamikaze attacks became prevalent during that period), while the Allies suffered in excess of 65,000 dead and wounded. Shotwell was one of those casualties. He received a Purple Heart after a mortar round exploded near him, wounding him in the chest and left arm. He remembers the details leading up to his injury all too well. His platoon, part of the Sixth Infantry Division, went into Okinawa on the second day of the invasion. Part of the reason for their delay was what was occurring on Iwo Jima, the island invaded by the Allies just prior to Okinawa. The reason we sat there all that time, they were waiting to see if theyd need us for Iwo Jima, Shotwell said. None of us knew that at the time, we found out later. So they got it under control and they sent us to Guadalcanal for more training for the next engagement, which turned out to be Okinawa. According to Shotwell, the real action on Okinawa didnt start until the troops reached the southern end of the island. He had been there for nearly two weeks when he embarked on that fateful patrol near a place called Sugar Loaf Hill. We started moving out and we were in these rice paddies, Shotwell said. The (Japanese) knew we were coming. They started firing at us, so we just fell down. It was wet and everything, but we didnt care. The shells started falling everywhere, mortar shells basically. So, we were laying there and I got to thinking, why arent we moving forward? I got up on my left arm just to take a look, to see if my squad leader was signaling to move. When I did, I got shrapnel here and here (in the chest and arm). The squad leader came over real quick and gave me some morphine and he told me to get back to the rear. Not realizing the extent of his wounds, Shotwell initially resisted. But once he did go back for treatment, he was introduced to some others who had been fighting on the island. There were these two guys in the amphibious vehicle that was taking us back, he recalled. One guy had half his leg shot off and the other was wounded pretty bad and they were talking, and you know what their conversation was? Hey, Joe, were lucky, looks like we can go home now, we made it. Yeah Bill, it sure is, now we can go. I just thought, those poor guys, wounded so bad but happy to be able to go home. It was that kind of vicious fighting on Okinawa, much of it hand-to-hand and in close quarters. There were caves all over the island, particularly in the south, Shotwell said, offering natural cover for the Japanese. His wounds were severe enough to get him evacuated to Guam for further treatment. Shotwell received a Purple Heart; that was the end of his combat duty in World War II, but not the end of his tour with the Marines. Shotwell was part of the unit sent to Tsingtao in China to help keep U.S. supplies from falling into Communist hands once the war with the Japanese ended. He was there for 13 months, finally getting discharged in April 1947. Former Marine shares memories of battle STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleWorld War II veteran Sam Shotwell recounts some of his exploits while serving in the Marines. Shotwell served six years, from 1941 to 1947. Wounded in an Okinawa rice paddy, he felt his wounds were minor compared to those of his fellow infantrymen.

He would work for the Internal Revenue Service for 25 years in Washington, D.C., before moving to Inverness. On Sept. 9, Shotwell will do something else hes never done before: Hell take an Honor Flight back to Washington, D.C., sponsored by Honor Flight of West Central Florida. These free flights provide World War II veterans the opportunity to see the memorial erected in their honor. As for the intervention of fate and his good fortune Shotwell noted if he had been turned slightly in a different direction when he was hit by the shrapnel, he wouldnt be here there was another example that was lodged in his memory. My sister-in-law, she was staying with my wife and my son, he said. She had been dating this Marine, and hed been to Guadalcanal and on a couple of other invasions. So he went out with the boys one night, and he fell off a balcony and killed himself. I thought to myself, heres a guy who dodged all the bullets in the world and everything else, and he falls and kills himself. I just thought, well, if its going to be, its going to be. Shotwell was fortunate. His fate did not end in World War II. WORDSContinued from Page A17 SundaysPUZZLER Puzzle is on Page A14. Alex J. PersavichAir Force Airman Alex J.

The 2009 Lecanto High School graduate has been through three knee surgeries, the death of his head coach Mike Wyatt at Oklahoma Panhandle State University, and, after his sophomore season, a transfer from OPSU to Friends University of Kansas. On the cusp of his senior season, Allan is enjoying better times and gaining recognition for the work hes put in. The offensive tackle was one of eight FU players to make the preseason Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference AllConference team, and hes an honorable mention for the USA College Football Preseason NAIA All-American squad. He was also picked as an All-American honorable mention by the CDFL (Collegiate Development Football League), which hosts the annual FCS Division II vs. NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) Challenge in December. While thinking about the last five years, Allan can hardly believe his journey. Its crazy to look at what I came from a 1-9 senior season at Lecanto, an injury at Panhandle and then coming out here after the death of my head coach, Allan said. Now Im starting to get some recognition. Its nice. All this hard work is starting to pay off. Rays blank Cubs Associated PRessCHICAGO Jake Odorizzi struck out nine in six scoreless innings and combined with two relievers on a five-hitter to lead the Tampa Bay Rays to a 4-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday. Evan Longoria drove in a run and scored two. Yunel Escobar added two hits and three RBIs. Ben Zobrist had two hits and scored twice for the Rays, who improved to a major league-best 15-6 since July 12. They will try to complete the three-game sweep on Sunday. Odorizzi (8-9) gave up three hits and didnt walk anyone. The right-hander came within two strikeouts of his career high after getting hit hard in a loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday. Chicago starter Edwin Jackson (6-12) allowed four runs three earned and five hits in six innings. He is 1-5 in his past nine starts. Cubs prized prospect Javier Baez doubled but had a tough day overall, going 1 for 4 and committing his first error. He had three strikeouts after whiffing four times Friday in his Wrigley Field debut. The second basemans error came when he dropped a throw from Luis Valbuena after the third baseman made a diving stop on a ball hit by Longoria with a runner on first in the sixth inning. Jackson then walked Matt Joyce to load the bases, and Escobar made it 4-0 with a two-run single. The Rays also scored two in the fourth when Longoria doubled in a run and came around on Escobars base hit. Kirby Yates pitched two perfect innings in relief. Jake McGee gave up back-to-back, two-out singles in the ninth to Anthony Rizzo and Starlin Castro before Valbuena struck out to end the game. The Rays took a 2-0 lead in a fourth inning that featured some unusual plays. Zobrist led off with a groundrule double to the right-field corner off Justin Ruggianos glove that stuck in the ivy. He moved up when center fielder Arismendy Alcantara dove to his left to snag James Loneys liner and came around on Longorias double. Escobar added a two-out RBI single that Ruggiano, apparently unaware of the runner headed home, fielded nonchalantly before making a flat-footed throw to the infield. Leading the pack Associated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. Rory McIlroy celebrated his final birdie with a smile and a slight pump of his first, knowing that 8-foot putt gave him the outright lead Saturday in the PGA Championship. Its a great position to be in, he said. Hes just not used to it being so crowded at the top. McIlroy has won all three of his majors with the lead going into the final round by eight shots at the 2011 U.S. Open, three shots at the 2012 PGA Championship, six shots last month at the British Open. Now comes another major test for Boy Wonder a Sunday shootout. More rain in the morning at Valhalla allowed for a deluge of birdies in the lowest scoring round in PGA Championship history. Six players had a share of the lead at some point. McIlroy could see it on the leaderboard. He could hear it on a golf course resounding with cheers from every corner. The 25-year-old from Northern Ireland found an extra gear, closing with three birdies on the last four holes for a 4-under 67 and a one-shot lead over Bernd Wiesberger. Right behind were Rickie Fowler and Phil Mickelson. Still very much in the picture were Jason Day, Henrik Stenson and Louis Oosthuizen. Tomorrow standing on the first tee is going to feel different than how it felt a month ago at Hoylake because you dont have that ... it is going to be a shootout, said McIlroy, who was at 13-under 200. You know the conditions are soft. Guys are going to make birdies. And you know that youre going to have to make birdies as well. He did his part late in the round, rolling in a 20-foot birdie putt on the 15th hole, hitting 9-iron from 172 yards that landed with a splat next to the hole for an easy birdie on the 16th hole, and getting up-and-down from a bunker on the final hole. Its not the biggest lead Ive ever had, McIlroy said. But Im still in control of this golf tournament.

Associated PressNEW YORK Corey Kluber pitched four-hit ball for a superb six innings Saturday and Jose Ramirez hit his first career homer as the Cleveland Indians ended a four-game skid with a 3-0 victory over the New York Yankees. Michael Brantley also homered and had three hits for Cleveland, which won at Yankee Stadium for the first time in eight games. Ramirez hit a two-run drive in the second inning and had three hits. Derek Jeter had an infield single in the sixth inning to pass Honus Wagner for sixth on the career list with No. 3,431. But New York was 0 for 9 with six strikeouts with runners in scoring position in losing for just the second time in eight games. Kluber (13-6) did not allow a hit until Jacoby Ellsbury doubled with one out in the fourth. He struck out 10 to beat New York for the first time in three tries. The right-hander has allowed only one earned run since the ninth inning of a win against Detroit on July 19. He has won five straight decisions.AMERICAN LEAGUE Blue Jays 3, Tigers 2, 10 inningsTORONTO Nolan Reimold hit a game-winning double in the 10th inning and the Toronto Blue Jays rallied past the Detroit Tigers 3-2, spoiling Max Scherzers bid to become the first 14-game winner in the American League. Danny Valencia singled off Joba Chamberlain to begin the 10th and Reimold followed with a double to the wall in left-center as Valencia scored without a play. Scherzer allowed one run and four hits in eight innings. He walked none and struck out 11, two shy of his season high. Chamberlain (1-5) came on to start the 10th after Joakim Soria, who finished the ninth, appeared to suffer a back injury while warming up before the inning. Aaron Loup (4-3) worked one inning for the victory.NATIONAL LEAGUE Padres 2, Pirates 1PITTSBURGH Eric Stults got his first road win of the season, going 6 1/3 innings as the San Diego Padres beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-1. Stults (5-13) gave up one run and seven hits, struck out six and walked none. He entered the game with an 0-9 record away from Petco Park. The Padres scored both runs in the first inning off Francisco Liriano (3-8). San Diego loaded the bases with no outs and scored on Jedd Gyorkos RBI single and Yasmani Grandals sacrifice fly. Pittsburgh answered in the home half when Josh Harrison led off with a single, stole second and scored on Russell Martins RBI single. After the first inning Liriano retired the next 17 batters he faced before walking Grandal with two outs in the seventh. He gave up three hits and a walk in seven innings.Brewers 4, Dodgers 1MILWAUKEE Mike Fiers held the Los Angeles Dodgers to three hits in his first big league start in more than a year, and Khris Davis and Carlos Gomez homered to give the Milwaukee Brewers a 4-1 win. Fiers (1-1) struck out five in eight strong innings, filling in for injured veteran Matt Garza. The Dodgers mustered only a solo homer by Adrian Gonzalez into the second deck in right field. Fiers outdueled former Brewers pitcher Zack Greinke (12-8), who gave up Gomezs homer off the left-field foul pole that made it 3-1 leading off the sixth. The Dodgers brought the tying run to the plate in the ninth with two outs against Francisco Rodriguez, but the closer got Matt Kemp to ground out for his 35th save.INTERLEAGUE Orioles 10, Cardinals 3BALTIMORE Caleb Joseph homered in his fifth consecutive game, Nelson Cruz hit his 30th and Delmon Young also went deep as the Batlimore Orioles beat John Lackey and the St. Louis Cardinals 10-3. All three home runs came with a man on against Lackey (1-1), making his second start since coming from Boston in a July 31 trade. The righthander gave up nine runs and 13 hits in five-plus innings to fall to 14-8 lifetime against Baltimore. The Orioles have hit nine homers in winning the first two games of the three-game set by a collective 22-5 score. Baltimore has won seven straight series and leads the AL East by six games, its largest margin since September 1997. Joseph, a rookie, had three homers in first 48 games before his recent power surge. The club record for homers in successive games is six, by Reggie Jackson and Chris Davis.Royals 5, Giants 0KANSAS CITY, Mo. James Shields threw a four-hitter and Alex Gordon homered as the Kansas City Royals won their sixth straight, beating the San Francisco Giants 5-0. The Royals have won nine of 10 to move with 1 1/2 games of AL Centralleading Detroit. The Royals, who have not made the playoffs since beating St. Louis in the 1985 World Series, are in second place in the AL wild card standings. Shields (11-6) gave up three singles in the first four innings. He allowed only two Giants to reach second base. He walked Joe Panik in the fifth and he moved to second on a wild pitch with two outs, but was stranded. Panik doubled in the eighth. It was Shields ninth career shutout, his first since Sept. 9, 2012. Tim Hudson (8-9) gave up a home run to Gordon to lead off the fifth inning.

On top of everything else, Allan, who thrives as a pass-protector, had to adjust to blocking in a run-heavy system at FU. It was also a tough transition moving from center, where he played at LHS, to left tackle. To his credit, hes made the adjustment to become a more well-rounded player, said Monty Lewis, the charismatic head coach of the Falcons who boasts a 77-36 record and three KCAC championships in 11 seasons at the school. That meant adding a little bit more bulk and a little bit more strength, and thats what hes done. I couldnt be more thrilled with what hes done. Hes done it the right way the way that itll stick. We dont want him to be somebody that weighs 350 pounds, Lewis continued. We want our linemen to be physical, but theyve got to be able to move. Jake has outstanding feet for his position. Weve always taken great pride knowing we got that kind of guy on the blindside of our quarterback. Constantly meeting a weight target is one of the most demanding parts of being a lineman. Allans weight has fluctuated from around 240 pounds to upwards of 350 pounds. The 6-foot-7 senior says hes around 280 pounds right now. Gaining weight is the hardest part, he said. I can lose it like nothing. I dropped from like 340 to 250, and they were like, No, you need to gain some more weight. With three knee surgeries, its been an everchanging process since I got to college. Beyond the individual accolades, Allan, who was named to the KCAC All-Conference team at the end of last season, has high expectations for his Falcons this year. They missed the FAIAs 16-team national playoff by one position in the polls in 2013. During the regular season, FU beat eventual KCAC champion Sterling College 31-0 on the road, holding them to three first downs. With 16 starters back on offense and defense, they head into the fall campaign at No. 19 in the NAIA preseason rankings. Three KCAC teamsTabor College, Ottawa University and Sterlingare ranked in the top 15. Ive seen more guys in the weight room this summer than Ive seen the past three years, Allan said. The new guys coming in are hungry for it, and the old cats that have been there are ready to go out on a high note. We lost three games that we could have won last year. Lewis is confident Allan can help the team accomplish its unfinished business. I know hes chomping at the bit. I know we can count on him. Hes going to have a great year. We should make a legitimate run. We were on our way last year. Injuries, for the first time in 30 years, probably cost us a ring. But, shoot, theyre part of the game. You just swallow hard and go. FU finished seventh in rushing offense in 2013. Allan is one of two Falcon offensive linemen to make preseason All-Conference. As an offensive lineman, you dont get stats, Allan said. So stats like that are where you pull your pride from. Allan played for his father Ron Allan at Lecanto, where the latter is currently athletic director. Lewis says its obvious Allan is a coachs son. Hes been around it his whole life, and you can easily see it, no question Lewis said. Jake sat in the spring so that we could meet the 10 semester limit rule, but, he was Coach Allan, if you will. He put his efforts in being around the guys and talking them through, and helping the guy that was playing his position. Allan says the level of play at the NAIA level is comparable to that at the FCS (Football Championship Subdivision) Division II level, where his former school OPSU competed. Looking back at when I was at Panhandle state, the level of competition and players Ive seen at NAIA is comparable, if not better, in some aspects, he explained. A couple of my friends (at FU) committed to Oregon out of high school, and when (OU) had a coaching change, they had their letters pulled. They were stranded that season and ended up here. Allans happy to be recognized nationally, but considers the conference honor a more special feat. To be one of the five offensive linemen named to the preseason All-Conference, I feel like thats cooler.

TRAINERS ROOMRays: Outfielder Wil Myers (broken right wrist) was scheduled to start a rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A Durham and serve as the designated hitter. Cubs: Manager Rick Renteria said newcomer Felix Doubront looked good during a bullpen session but had no word on a possible rehab assignment. The left-hander, acquired from Boston before the July 31 trade deadline, is working his way back from a strained left calf.ON DECKRays: Right-hander Alex Cobb (7-6, 3.52 ERA) looks to continue his strong stretch as the Rays wrap up their three-game series against the Cubs. He has allowed two runs or fewer in five straight starts. Cubs: Left-hander Travis Wood (7-9, 5.08) looks for his first victory in nearly two months. An All-Star last season, Wood is 0-4 with a 6.10 ERA in nine starts since a win at Philadelphia on June 15. ALLANContinued from Page B1 RAYSContinued from Page B1 Sunday is shaping up as a thriller, typical of the final major of the year. Wiesberger closed with three straight birdies the three putts were a combined 3 feet, 6 inches for a 65. Playing in only his sixth major championship, the 28-year-old Austrian now gets to play in the final group at a major with the No. 1 player in the world. Ive not been in a contention in a major championship, so I dont know how its going to turn out, Wiesberger said. Im just trying to enjoy it as I did today. ... From now on, its just a bonus, really. Fowler, a runner-up in the last two majors and the first player since Tiger Woods in 2005 to finish among the top five in all three of them, gets one last crack. He played bogey-free for a 67 and was two shots behind. Fowler will be playing in the penultimate group with Mickelson, the fivetime major champion who turned his game around with strong finish. Right when he looked to be fading from contention, Lefty turned it on with a long birdie putt on the 14th hole, two more birdies, and then he narrowly missed an eagle putt on the final hole. He had a 67 and was three shots behind. That birdie putt on 14 was really the one that got me going, because I needed to finish strong to get back in it, Mickelson said. Mickelson was at 10-under 203 with Day, who played in the final group with McIlroy on Saturday and had to settle for a 69. The PGA Championship does not bill itself as the toughest test in golf. It assembles the best field of the majors and lets them slug it out over four days. Add a super soft course from morning showers, and cheers rained down from every corner. The average score was 69.57, though it felt easier to former Masters champion Adam Scott, one of nine players with a 66 or better. Doesnt get any easier, said Scott, who was six behind. Seems like 4 or 5 under is about even par today. For all the birdies, two pars early in the round were important. Day hooked his tee shot so badly on the second hole that it cleared the stream and landed in a bog. It eventually was found in knee-high vegetation. Day had to remove his shoes, roll up his pants and wade across the stream to get there. He blasted across the fairway into the rough, hit wedge onto the green to 8 feet and made it. The tee was moved forward on the par-4 fourth hole, making it play 292 holes. Seven players made eagle. McIlroy was not one of them. He hooked his tee shot into the woods and had to take a penalty drop to get a clear look at the green. McIlroy made a 12-footer for par to stay in the lead, and he made birdie on the next hole. Back and forth it went all day. Fowler, Day, Wiesberger and even Ryan Palmer and Jim Furyk took turns joining McIlroy atop the leaderboard. Through it all, Boy Wonder never fell back. And thats what makes it hard on everyone else chasing him Sunday. McIlroy is coming off a wire-to-wire win at the British Open and rallied to win a World Golf Championship in his next start. He goes after a third straight victory from a familiar position in the lead. Unlike his other three majors, he has hardly any margin for error and a lot more players chasing him. Ill take a win any way it comes, McIlroy said. If that means having to scrap it out with a couple people coming down the stretch, of if I can give myself some sort of lead going down the back nine ... I dont think it would give me extra satisfaction winning by one or two or scrapping it out.Inbee Park leads MeijerBELMONT, Mich. Inbee Park made two long birdie putts on the back nine Saturday and finished with a 3-under 68 to remain a stroke ahead after the third round of the Meijer LPGA Classic. The third-ranked South Korean player holed a 25-footer from the fringe on the par-3 14th, bogeyed the par-4 15th after missing a 3-foot par try and rebounded with a 35-foot birdie putt on the par-4 16th. Park had a 13-under 200 total at Blythefield Country Club. South Korean rookie Mirim Lee was second after a 67. Norways Suzann Pettersen was another stroke back after a 69.

Starting in mid-October, a panel of 13 football experts will begin meeting once a week to determine the four teams who will compete for the national championship in the very first College Football Playoff. Their goal is to choose the four best teams in the nation at the end of the regular season. But how does someone answer a question for which there will almost always will be more than one correct answer? We need both faith and reason, said committee member and West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck. We have to use our logical skills and the deductive skills that the people in that room have. But the college football world needs a little bit of faith that we all check our pasts at the door and we go about this in a very straightforward and honest manner. Where the College Football Playoff has the Bowl Championship Series beat is simply the number four. Twice as many teams will now enter the postseason with a chance to win the national championship. Most fans agree this is progress over an old system where deserving teams were left out. How will the new panel decide on top teams? Will so-called great teams still be left out? As its first season unfolds, the group could create an all-new set of questions about whether the process works.THE HUMAN ELEMENTThe biggest change in the process is that people not computer rankings are solely in charge of teams fates. So the panel will have to learn how to effectively debate, compromise and even account for bias. This small number of human beings sitting across the table from each other can evaluate nuances to a much greater degree than the old system could, said Bill Hancock, the executive director of the College Football Playoff. There can be give and take. There can be questions and answers. That element just wasnt a part of the old system. The downside of that is with so few people, if there is bias in the room it can have a greater impact on the final decision. If someone consistently overrates the importance of offense over defense, for example, that can affect the process moreso than when the teams were chosen by more than 100 voters in Harris and coaches polls. With 13 people, if somebody really has it in their head that no matter what South Carolina is not that good, if one person votes them No. 15 even if everybody else has them around the top four, theyre probably not going to get in, said Bill Connelly, a writer for SB Nation whose statistical rating system called F+ can be found at football outsiders.com. On Oct. 21, the committee will release its first weekly rankings, a top 25 that will allow fans to see what the panel is collectively thinking down the stretch of the season. Hancock has said the weekly rankings were a nod to college football tradition, and transparency. The rankings give fans a way to assess to some degree where teams stand in the championship race and they shine light on the process. Maybe a little too much light? The obsession with transparency drives me crazy, Connelly said. I get the idea that its good to know how somebody came up with what they come up with, but they have gone overboard. Its going to make it a far more painful process for them. Dave Bartoo, a data analyst, consultant and founder of www.cfbmatrix .com, said he anticipates the selection committee will rank teams similarly to other poll panels. Traditionally, college football poll voters tend to create tiers based on the number of loses and wins and adjust the teams within those tiers, making some alterations to account for perceived schedule strength. I feel thats what should happen because they (the committee) dont have enough information to do any better than the people who have been doing it, Bartoo said.STRENGTH OF SCHEDULEThe committee has been instructed to place an emphasis on strength of schedule, head-to-head matchups and conference championships. Strength of schedule has become a particular buzz phrase this offseason, with coaches and conferences already touting the virtues of their lineup. Bartoo said its misguided to emphasize strength of schedule because calculating it accurately is not possible, no matter how its done. A lot of people want to believe that strength of schedule is a valid stat for separating teams, he said. Its not the best one or the worst one. They are all about a coin flip. There are not enough data points in college football to make a good sample size to study strength of schedule because teams play so few games and the best teams rarely play each other, Bartoo said.ANALYZING THE DATAThe committee will have a virtual bank vault full of data at their fingertips, provided by a company called SportsSource Analytics, to help them judge teams. Bartoo is concerned about information overload and the committee using numbers that have not been properly vetted. Who is helping with oversight on that? he said. Can the playoff committee call me? We think this metric is valuable, can you back test it for that? The BCS taught college football fans there is no perfect way of picking the best teams. That wont change with the College Football Playoff. They will do the best they can and Im confident theyll pick the best four teams, Hancock said. Some other group of 13 people might come up with different teams, but our group will spend a season evaluating teams unlike any other group with fall. More time watching video and analyzing data than any other group. But I certainly know that another group of 13 might come up with something different. How will college football panel pick top teams? Associated PressWATKINS GLEN, N.Y. With The King atop the pit box at Watkins Glen International, Marcos Ambrose wasnt about to disappoint. The aggressive Australian dueled early with Kyle Busch to fall off the pace in the NASCAR Nationwide race, then was flawless the rest of the way Saturday, holding off a hard-charging Busch at the end to win the race for the fourth time in his last four starts. Its just something special. Im just so thrilled for the guys, Ambrose said. I had my tongue hanging out the whole day. There was nothing left. I tried to hold him back. Another lap and I would have been in trouble. Ambrose raced to three straight victories at the track from 2008 to 2010, then missed the 2011 to 2013 events after failing to find a sponsor. Ambroses future in NASCAR with Richard Petty Motorsports remains in doubt, and he desperately needs a victory in Sundays Sprint Cup race to have any chance of making the Chase for the championship. Theres a lot at stake, a lot of stuff going on in my mind, Ambrose said. If I can repeat my performance today, Ill be happy. At least Ambrose will start from the front row alongside Jeff Gordon, so the catbird seat will be up for grabs as soon as the green flag waves. Maybe this will give him a little more incentive, Petty said. Hes just unreal. Hes doing his job, for dang sure. Joey Logano finished third, followed by Penske teammate and polesitter Brad Keselowski. Matt Kenseth was fifth as Sprint Cup drivers dominated on the speedy 2.45-mile road course. Points leader Chase Elliott finished sixth, Ty Dillon was eighth, and Regan Smith had a difficult race and came home 17th. That boosted Elliotts lead in the standings to 12 points over Smith and 13 over Dillon and Elliott Sadler, who was seventh. Ambrose led 48 laps of the 82-lap race for his fifth Nationwide victory, all on road courses and a series record. The race became intense early when Busch and Ambrose, who started together on the second row, tangled in the chicane, or inner loop, on the sixth lap. Busch drove inside of Ambrose entering the quick four-turn section, a move reminiscent of one Ambrose made when he stunned Busch in the same place in the 2009 event and went on to win the race. I looked up halfway down the back straight, he was close and he ducked out late, Ambrose said. I turned in late because I was very committed. He bumped my left rear. It wasnt intentional. He was trying to get out of the way. No harm, no foul. Just hard racing. Both spun out into a big runoff area after the contact, dropping several spots in the running order as the Penske duo of Logano and Keselowski took control. I knew it wasnt over, thats for sure, said Ambrose, his young daughters smiling as they watched in the media center. The moment I spun out, I tried 110 percent the rest of the way. It just goes to show you these races are never over. You cant quit. A decisive moment came just past the midpoint of the race. Logano pitted after Ambrose and zoomed onto the track as Ambrose came streaking by. Both ran side-by-side through the first two turns and into the uphill section until Ambrose edged ahead. Super important, Ambrose said. If I hadnt cleared him right there, he would have been gone. It would have been hard to pass him. That was definitely a key moment, Logano added. If I could have gotten out front of him there, I felt like if I got clean air and ran hard, I could gap him. It would have been close. Im not going to say I would have won the race, but if I didnt run so hard and burn off the tires, would it have been enough to beat him? I dont know. When the race restarted with 20 laps to go after the fifth caution, the four cars that began the race in the first two rows were still there, just in a different order. Ambrose cleared Logano when the green flag flew, with Busch and Keselowski right behind. Busch challenged Keselowski for third entering the chicane, and Keselowskis defensive move sent him spinning off course, grass and dirt flying as he dropped to sixth. Logano stalked Ambrose as the two front-runners pulled away from Busch by over two seconds as Keselowski tried to rebound from his mistake. Busch began to close, passing Logano with less than five laps to go but never got to Ambroses back bumper. Ambrose wins Nationwide race at Watkins Glen Associated PressMarcos Ambrose celebrates in Victory Lane Saturday after winning the Nationwide race at Watkins Glen International in Watkins Glen, N.Y. Manziel solid in debut, Browns fall to Lions 13-12DETROIT Johnny Manziel showed off some of his fancy footwork, and the Cleveland rookie looked sharp with his arm too in his preseason debut, although the Browns lost to the Detroit Lions 13-12 on Saturday night. Manziel entered the game as a backup in the middle of the second quarter, and although he couldnt take his team to the end zone, he did go 7 of 11 for 63 yards, completing one more pass than starting quarterback Brian Hoyer. Manziel also ran for 27 yards on six carries, including a 16-yard scramble in the third quarter. Matthew Stafford led the Lions to a field goal on his only drive of the game. Star receiver Calvin Johnson didnt play.OBannon ready to keep fighting after trialLAS VEGAS Ed OBannon knows its not over, far from it. Hes ready for the appeals, and welcomes a challenge to the ruling that could change big-time college sports forever. After five years of battling the NCAA, OBannon isnt about to back away from the fight. Not when he is such a believer in the cause. OBannon said Saturday that was prepared to go to the Supreme Court. The former UCLA basketball star and face of the lawsuit that has shaken the NCAA to its core could have been out celebrating, a day after a federal judge issued an injunction paving the way for future college football and basketball players to receive payments for service to their schools. Instead, he was headed back to the auto dealership in a suburb of Las Vegas where he sells cars.Venus tops Serena in semifinalMONTREAL Venus beat Serena in an all-Williams semifinal in the Rogers Cup.

Section CSUNDAY, AUGUST 10, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW The Chronicleis the oldest business in Citrus County. On Friday, the newspaper officially turned 120 years old. To celebrate that grand occasion, we put out another newspaper because thats what we do. I was in charge of getting the birthday cake, but it didnt happen. There were just too many other things on the priority list. The Chroniclehas grown along with this community and has had many of the same ups and downs as everyone else. What we have done is produce a newspaper on schedule since 1894. The paper started in Mannfield, the first county seat of Citrus, and later moved to the Courthouse Square in Inverness, where we have remained for many decades. The ownership of the paper has changed more than a dozen times over those 120 years as editors and owners have lived and died. In the early years, the paper carried the serialized writings of Mark Twain on the front page because there really was not that much happening each week in a county with fewer than 3,000 residents. Very few businesses other than the Chronicleand Brannen Bank continued through the Depression years and came out the other side. During the 1930s, many readers bartered with the editor for the newspaper. Fresh eggs in the morning or a cord of wood in winter was as good as cash. It wasnt until the 1970s that Citrus County and theChroniclebegan the boom years. Under the leadership of then-owner David S. Arthurs, the Chronicleexpanded its reach throughout the county. In the 1970s, the countys population increased by 177 percent, and so did the size of the newspaper. In 1980, David sold the Chronicleto Landmark Communications and we began to expand the From Twain to Twitter, weve been there See WINDOW/ Page C3 We are witnessing the evolution of a process which appears to address some of the acute problems at hand, but questions about effectiveness of the remedies remain. From all appearances, efforts by the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) to restore the Chassahowitzka River have failed. Is the SWFWMDs definition of restore functional and effective? Basin Management Action Plans under development by the FDEP for impaired waters in the state and Citrus County are, for the most part, voluntary programs and require participation by all parties to the affair if they are to be effective. This includes the residents, business owners, agricultural interests and, not in the least part, the Citrus County Commission. To be frank, we are responsible for the current state of affairs, so it seems reasonable that the burden of resolution rests on our shoulders. The state did not cause these problems; it is only the messenger. Nonetheless, spin masters from our state government have coined a phrase that, from all appearances, is intended to deflect responsibility for our current state of affairs: legacy nutrients. It is an odious term which implies that problems besetting our waters are the responsibility of prior generations or residents. Well, we did inherit some of this problem, but every time you use water, another page of your legacy is added to the journals of history. Think about it next time you shower, fertilize and water your lawn or flush the toilet. Collectively and individually, we can do better. Recent news in the Chronicleabout efforts by M&B Dairy to address such issues illustrates methodologies which can have a positive impact on water-quality problems. More importantly, they show that some of us will step forward without MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle fileLeon McClellan explains the process M&B Dairy will use to recycle animal waste once it has been flushed from the barn. A large, wedge-shaped, concretelined pond holds a 30-day supply of water, which is used for irrigating the feed crops. Dan Hilliard applauds the efforts of the McClellan family to explore methodologies that can have a positive impact on water quality. A LEGACY THAT CAN BE FIXED On the topic of polluted state and local waters, heritage and legacies bequeathed to future generations, where does the dialogue start? More importantly, where does it end? With all of the coastal rivers and a number of lakes in Citrus County formally listed as impaired by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), concerned citizens are speaking out, and in return receive carefully crafted responses from FDEP and the water districts. prodding by the law to do things that need to be done. Mr. McClellans actions to recycle animal waste are to be applauded, even as they begin to incrementally reduce the workload of the One Rake project and SWFWMD. Kudos to you, Mr. McClellan! So, when are the rest of us going to step forward and do what needs to be done? When will we, the all inclusive we, step forward to change the legacy presented to future generations of residents in Citrus County? Is it possible that we could do such things that our example might be held as a statewide model which reverses decades of abuse and short sighted policies which led us to this nexus? I think so. As the jurisdiction overseeing the largest number of first-magnitude springs on Earth, is it in our interest to do so? You betcha! Citrus County is at a crossroads. Our Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Code were formulated at the behest of the states now-defunct Department of Community Affairs. For better or worse, DCA was dismantled by the administration of Gov. Rick Scott, leaving our destiny in our hands. The structure of the current Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Code appears to have been predicated on the cheapest methodologies with intent to develop a destination for retirees. We have limited wastewater and municipal water-supply infrastructure. Lacking such infrastructure, we rely heavily on private wells and residential septic systems. It may seem like the most cost-efficient method, but it is not. The era of cheap water and shortsighted wastewater disposal died an unnatural death many years ago, and today we are looking at a rather unsavory menu of choices: 1) We can let our springs-fueled economy die; 2) We can roll up our sleeves and reach for our collective wallets to fix these problems, and finally; 3) We can let our Board of County Commissioners know they are the key to success. None of these options are cheap or easy. The question I pose to you is this: If we remove the worth of springs and coastal waters from our economic base and quality of life due to nutrient pollution, what is Citrus County?

Page C2SUNDAY, AUGUST 10, 2014 For roads, tax or spendCitizens of Citrus County, once again we are asked to cast our vote on an issue to raise the sales tax from 6 cents to 7 cents because of the shortage of revenue that comes from the 6-cent gas tax already in place for roads. After reading most of the objection in the Chronicleof July 28, I would like to make a comment for the record. I drive around this county daily, and my wife, being a rural postal worker, has to deliver mail daily, so we know the conditions of most of the roads here in Citrus County. The roads are in very poor shape and need to be repaved. Now with that said, we have two choices to solve this problem. Remember this. It was you the citizen who complained to the BOCC about the conditions of your roads. We can raise the sales tax 1 cent or we can elect to have more MSBUs to do the job. These are the two choices. Now, do any of you really know the cost to pave roads? If you do the math, you will find out that a 1-cent sales tax is far cheaper then any MSBU. The county commission gave you an opportunity to vote on this issue by placing it on the ballot. It is your choice. If you vote no, then get ready for more MSBUs to repave your roads. Now let me tell you about the cost of a special assessment or an MSBU. I just finished payingtwo special assessments for a water line that passes by property I own. The total was $5,100, plus another $2,500 to hook up one house. Folks, that is a total of $7,600 in special assessments, and thats just for water. Now, I own the same property when it comes to frontage for roads. I checked with a road construction company to find out the cost for repaving my road, and believe me, I would have to sell my home before I could afford another MSBU for this. Special assessments are non ad-valorem taxes or fees that place liens on your property until they are paid off. Those liens hurt any sale of your property if you are trying to sell. As a property owner here, I will vote yes on this issue. I would rather pay 1 cent than another special assessment with liens attached. Its going to happen one way or the other.Charles Knecht Sr. Dunnellon Back when he first ran for governor of Florida as a self-styled outsider, Rick Scott lambasted his opponent in the Republican primary for taking campaign money from U.S. Sugar, one of the worst corporatepolluters of the Everglades. Scott indignantly squeaked that Bill McCollum had been bought and paid for by U.S. Sugar. He said the companys support of McCollum was disgusting. I cant be bought, Scott declared. Seriously, thats what the man said. Stop gagging and read on. Four years later, the governors reelection campaign is hungrily raking in money from U.S. Sugar, more than $534,000 so far. Exactly when Scott overcame his disgust isnt clear, but in February 2013 he and undisclosed others jetted to the King Ranch in Texas for a hogand deer-hunting junket on U.S. Sugars 30,000-acre lease. Apparently this has become a secret tribal rite for some top Florida Republicans. Exposed last week by reporters Craig Pittman and Michael Van Sickler of the Tampa Bay Times, the politicians ran like jackrabbits for the hills. All questions were redirected to the state Republican Party, which couldnt get its story straight. Fundraising wound up as the official explanation for the free pig-shooting sorties. Scott refused to field questions about the King Ranch shindig. A spokesman said the governor covered his own air flight and hunting license. Days later, a bit more information: Scott shot a buck on the trip, his flack said, and paid the taxidermist out of his own pocket. What a guy! A month after his secret safari, the governor appointed an executive of King Ranchs Florida agricultural holdings to the board of the South Florida Water Management District, the agency supposedly supervising the Everglades cleanup. The inner circle, you see, goes unbroken. Florida Agriculture Secretary Adam Putnam was so mortified to be asked about his King Ranch excursions that he slithered behind a door that was then shut in a reporters face. Slick move. Putnam is the same social butterfly who once criticized the state law forbidding elected officeholders from accepting gifts like free trips, booze and meals. Putnam lamented that the ban was a disincentive for fellowship. Thwarting the statutory gift ban has been accomplished by letting the political parties operate as money launderers for special interests. U.S. Sugar, for example, gives tons of cash to the Republican Party of Florida, which then spreads it around to Scott, Putnam and other candidates for purported political expenses. The King Ranch, which has its own sugar and cattle holdings in Florida, has also hosted GOP House Appropriations Chair Seth McKeel and Dean Cannon when he was House Speaker. The current House Speaker, Will Weatherford, and the incoming speaker, Steve Crisafulli, have both received Texas hunting licenses, although they wont say if theyve been to the King spread. Florida has an abundance of deer and wild hogs, but an outof-state safari offers the appeal of seclusion and anonymity. Interestingly, no Republican senators or Democratic leaders appear to have participated in the King Ranch flyouts. Former Gov. Charlie Crist, Scotts likely opponent in November, has taken contributions from Big Sugar, but said hes never been to the ranch. Buying off politicians with hunting and fishing trips is an old tradition in Tallahassee, interrupted by the occasional embarrassing headline followed by flaccid stabs at reform. Nobody believes the absurd GOP party line saying that the King Ranch hunting jaunts are fundraisers. Theyre just free (or heavily discounted) vacations. You really cant blame Big Sugar or its lobbyists. They know who and what theyre dealing with; the only issue is the price. The company has given more than $2.2 million to Republican candidates in the 2014 election cycle, and theres no reason to believe it wont get its moneys worth. Taxpayers, not the sugar tycoons, remain stuck with most of the cost of cleaning up the Everglades. Every time someone tries to make the polluters pay a larger share, the idea gets snuffed in Tallahassee. Meanwhile the politicians who could make it happen are partying in Texas with the polluters shootin at critters, smokin cigars, sippin bourbon around the fire. Hell, maybe theres even a steam bath. These are the people controlling the fate of the Everglades. Theyve been bought and paid for, just like Rick Scott said four years ago. Now hes one of them. His staff wont say why he changed his mind about taking Big Sugars money. It also wont say where he put the stuffed head of that buck he killed at the King Ranch. The bathroom wall would be a fitting place, hanging right over the toilet where he flushed his integrity.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

H.L. MenckenThere are welldocumented problems at the local animal shelter. It is old, overcrowded, lacks air conditioning and proper facilities for separating healthy animals from the sick. It is also largely staffed by volunteers, and many feel it is not adequately staffed with professionals. The former head veterinarian and shelter director recently took a similar job in another county, and the job of shelter director has been split between a temporary vet and the county Housing Services Operations Manager. Beginning tomorrow, the shelter will have a new permanent director who has experience in managing animal shelters. During the past year, there has been considerable discussion about building a new shelter to relieve the physical problems of the existing one, but these have not generally gone beyond the discussion phase. The county has $4 million in its five-year capital plan, but no specific plans for building a shelter. Earlier this summer, there was discussion of possibly enlisting various animal protection groups to help put together a united fundraising effort. Given the multiple issues facing the current shelter, the recent proposal by the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) to build an animal shelter on county-owned land near the county jail seems like a reasonable option, at least on the surface. The proposal calls for the Nashville, Tenn.-based corporation that runs the county jail to build the shelter at a cost of approximately $2.8 million, which the county would repay either by an increase in the daily rate paid for jail prisoners or by monthly payments. Aside from the county not having to put up immediate cash, the proposal also has the benefit of placing the shelter in more centrally located place, and also near the jail so that inmates could help care for shelter animals. Since the shelter would be built by a private corporation using its own funds, there would not be a requirement for competitive bids for construction. But the situation at the animal shelter is not simply a case of inadequate facilities. It involves not only the physical facility, but staffing, funding, and the philosophical matter of how operating the shelter fits in with other county priorities. Before allowing a private company to build a shelter and sell it to the county, the county should do a needs assessment to identify the specific problems confronting the existing shelter and what can be done to solve them. With a new permanent shelter director coming on board, his input should be part of the final decision process. The CCA proposal also calls for the county to pay the company for the shelter either through higher per diem prisoner fees or direct monthly payments. This means that the public would ultimately pay for the cost of this facility. Since the public would pay, it seems reasonable for the county to solicit bids to assure the price proposed is fair and reasonable. When all of the necessary homework has been done, it may turn out that the CCA proposal is the best way to move forward and resolve problems with the existing shelter. But without a full needs assessment and competitive bids for a new shelter, there is no way to really know. For these reasons, we recommend the county answer some fundamental questions about the current situation at the existing shelter before making any commitment to a solution.

COMMENTARYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST10, 2014 C3 frequency of publication. In 1983, we began publishing three days a week, and in 1986 turned the paper into a six-day daily. The seventh day was added in 1989. The St. Petersburg Times,Tampa Tribuneand Ocala Star Bannerall had Citrus County editions at the time, with offices and many staff members located here. Each of the urban dailies felt they could become the dominant newspaper in Citrus, but first they had to get past theChronicle. Landmark pumped millions of capital investment into the newspaper, and our strong staff fought hard to win the loyalty of local readers and advertisers. Eventually, each of the other daily newspapers stepped away from our local newspaper war and theChroniclegrew its daily and Sunday readership. I am not so arrogant to believe that everyone loves theChronicle. People in every town in America tell their local newspaper editor or publisher at least once a week that your newspaper isnt good enough to wrap fish with. Humility is good for the soul. And there are a lot of people in Citrus County who are doing their part to keep me humble. But if I can speak for those who came before me and I have to regularly remind my staff of this we are not here to be loved by everyone. Yes, we have a pro-Citrus County bias in what we promote and get involved with. But not everyone will agree with those decisions or our efforts to hold elected officials accountable for what they do. We are not here to be loved; were here to do a job. The newspaper business has become more complicated over the past 25 years as the Internet revolution has changed the way people consume information. Chronicleonline.com is now the largest and most active in Citrus County. Thousands of people get their information each day visiting Chronicleonline.com on their desktop, laptop or mobile device. The revenue generated from advertising has always been the main source of funding for the newspaper. In recent years, many of the traditional brick-andmortar stores that once sat on Main Street have been replaced by online stores. Right here in Citrus County we have seen Sears, Belk and J.C. Penney close up shop and leave town. Each of those stores had healthy advertising budgets now its all gone. Our industry is going through dramatic changes just like every other business in town. While we live through this change today and complain, I am pretty darn sure living through the Depression was even more difficult. And World War II was no cakewalk. And neither was the Great Recession of 2008. The Chroniclehas served Citrus County for 120 years. I promise I will get a birthday cake next week and make sure we take the time to celebrate that accomplishment. And then we will get right back to work, because we have another paper coming out tomorrow.Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle. Email him at gmulligan@ chronicleonline.com. Just sound the alarm, sweetheart. Ill be there in a flash! Cheryl tried all sorts of logic to get me to agree to use hearing aids. She worked for years, but I wouldnt budge. I knew I couldnt hear nearly as well as I should, and my hardheadedness wasnt due to vanity concerning hearing aids making me look old (there were a lot of other things that already made me look old), it was the simple fact that I didnt have faith that theyd work for me. Finally, she used her version of the nuclear option. She cried. Tears formed in her eyes as she explained that since we were both getting older, in-home accidents were more possible and that she was concerned that due to the size and configuration of our house, she might need me and I wouldnt be able to hear her. I was fitted for hearing aids and realized that I really love them. They have indeed greatly expanded my world. And, yes, I can now hear her wherever she may be, but sometimes I cant tell exactly what the circumstance is. More than once, I have set out in a gallop, but never yet have I found her to be in any real trouble. Case in point: A few days ago, I heard a loud yelp from the master bath. It was followed by a loud cry, Oh, no! To set the stage for this adventure, I need to draw a mental picture for you. The area of our master bath, which contains sinks, also has a built-in bureau where Cheryl sits to comb her hair and put on her face. Not that she needs to do all of that primping to impress me, but she seems to think other folks dont see her as I do, so she spends a considerable amount of time doing her home work. Anyway, on the counter adjacent to all of her makeup material is a small TV set. Yes, there are some of us who have a TV set in our bathroom. Are you beginning to get the picture? I ran at full speed into the bathroom, expecting to see my love on the floor, thinking my next move would be to call 911. It wasnt that way at all. There she sat, in her bureau chair, teasing her hair. I excitedly asked, Are you all right? What happened? She explained that she was watching The Price is Right and some dear contestants Plinko chip had made an erroneous turn and ended up in the zero slot instead of the $10,000 one. No matter. Just sound the alarm, sweetheart. Ill be there in a flash.Fred Brannen, an Inverness resident, has been a Chronicle columnist since 1988 and is the author of the novel At the Bottom of Biscayne Bay. Fred may be contacted at fbrannenjr @gmail.com or via brannenbooksllc.com. Fred BrannenA SLICE OF LIFE WINDOWContinued from Page C1 Letters toTHE EDITOR An open letter to Chairman KenneyThe most mandatory benchmark for you as a commissioner must always be simply, How does a contemplated expense, benefit all the taxpayers, who ultimately pay its cost? The countys infrastructure is, unquestionably, first. Issues such as those relating to water, roads, maintenance or the environment must be of dominant importance. Commissioner, you must ask yourself if building a new animal shelter is preferential, compared to what other essential need? Would taxpayers prefer new road construction instead of a shelter? Would they prefer replacement or repair of existing ones instead of a shelter? How about new sources of potable water instead of a shelter? Or the maintenance of hygienic conditions of lakes, rivers and other bodies of water instead of a shelter? Would you require only pet owners and not all taxpayers, to pay for this new shelter? Wouldnt they reluctantly reply, I already pay a pet expense at home. Perhaps a few may offer a pittance for the general welfare of pets. My research indicates a shelter should never be a county expense, because it then becomes a death chamber (as it is now) where animals are euthanized if not adopted expeditiously. In many states of our nation, special private humanitarian organizations as (ASPCA) run these shelters where they seldom exterminate animals. These private run organizations are kind, compassionate and rely on charitable collections to offset maintenance and salary expenses. Having the construction of a shelter paid by CCA, which then demands repayment of the $2.8 million, to me borders on a subterfuge scheme to outwit taxpayers. Your personal wishes or desires to build a new shelter facility, which have been reported on several occasions in the Chronicleover the past few months, are unwise unless you personally underwrite this extraordinary expense for which all Citrus County taxpayers. Peter Monteleone Pine RidgeSales tax a nightmareThe 1-cent sales tax will turn out to be a nightmare created by the county. What to do with the incorporated cities, Crystal River and Inverness? The presentation to the Inverness council identified a problem with how much money it should receive from the tax to pave its municipal streets. Thesame question can be asked of Crystal River: How much will it get? Whatever is left is what the county keeps. No matter who gets what, it will turn out to be a problem in the future. Will the cities be responsible for paving their city streets? Will the county be responsible for paving all the county highways and all streets that are not in the cities except for state highways and private streets? These are all questions that will have to be answered, and there is no easy answer. Lets throw another one into the mix: How would it work out if the county kept all the tax money and paved all the streets and roads except for the state and private roads? Then what happens to the cities? Do they just go out of business and have nothing to do with anything? It seems like our county commissioners cant identify their responsibilities for county and municipal functions and separate them from the cities as required. It wouldbe nice if our commissioners would start acting like a county government should and stop acting like a country club. This 1-cent tax and the thinking that endorsed it is just completely out of order. It just cant work out where everyonewould be satisfied and all the problems would work out. Dont think about a MSBU, either. If the residents of the cities paid for the repaving the city streets and the county paid for repaving the county streets, then I guess that the respective parties would have to pay their own bills, right? But what happens to residents who live in private communities? They have to pay to take care of their private roads and streets themselves.W ill they be expected to pay the city or the county to have those streets paved, also? I hope clearer thinking prevails. It is going to be on the ballot in November, and I hope it is soundly defeated.Alfred E. Mason Crystal RiverTips are gifts, not requirementsThose who own a business offering service normally set their fee to cover the job. This includes labor, insurance, licensing and maintenance costs incurred (i.e. vehicle upkeep, travel time, etc.) Recently, I have faced costly repairs at my home: a new roof will cost $7,000, drainfield, $2,300, dead tree removal, $1,300, to mention only a few of Julys catastrophes. I cant wait for next month! Each of these costly services will require heavy lifting, expensive equipment, manpower and professional skills. The hired workers will not get rich, but hopefully, they will be able to adequately care for themselves and their families. I do not feel obligated to tip any of these workers, and Im quite sure they dont expect extra money to do work they are contracted to perform. The Sound Off caller who owns or drives for a transport company is wrong to complain that all customers dont tip. A tip is given as a token of thankfulness, without obligation. Those who are insulted, or angered when their normal-performance jobs arent padded with extra money (tips) should look for other work. They should be grateful to have a job and, if not, give it to someone else. I have owned and worked for several companies over the years, including driving commercial vehicles (hauling freight over the road, driving a 48-passenger tour bus, and the short-term experience of insanity when driving a school bus!) I am a licensed beautician/barber, was a beekeeper who collected swarms when panicky people called, and owned a small engine and lawnmower shop. I was even a waitress for five days! Never did I expect a tip and always, I was grateful to those who generously gave one. Some people cannot afford to give one; others dont want to. Remember: A tip is a gift, not a requirement. Its a token of appreciation for service extended graciously, above and beyond the norm, and, oftentimes, a heartfelt thank you is all someone can give.Joanie Welch InvernessSupport H.R. 2417Currently H.R. 2417, the Shield Act, is sitting in committee in Congress. This is a bill to harden our power grid against an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) attack. Both Russia and China have hardened their electric grids and are rumored to have given EMP technology to rogue nations (Iran and North Korea) who could use the technology against the United States. We need to contact Congress and get them to pass this bill to protect America against this possible threat. In addition, Congress needs to establish an agency to protect the U.S. power grid. I know, more federal agencies is not something I normally advocate, but this is an exception. No agency in the federal government has responsibility for the electric grid, and the majority of our senators and representatives do not take the threat of an EMP attack seriously. Also, we need to re-establish our manufacturing of transformers and other equipment needed to keep our grid up and running and not depend on acquiring these materials from other countries, some of which may be actively hostile. We need to encourage our states to have independent electric grid capability. Texas has an independent grid. There is no reason states cannot step up and protect their citizens from such a threat. This is not a conspiracy theory. It would only take one scud missile launched from a vessel in the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic Ocean to wreck havoc on America. Within one year of an EMP blast, approximately 50 percent of the U.S. population would be dead. The infrastructure would be set back 100 years and the country would not be able to protect itself from hostile invasion. And the cost? It will cost approximately $500 million to protect our electric grid. Congress wastes more than this amount monthly, if not weekly. There is absolutely no reason for Americas power grid to be vulnerable. Please contact your representatives and senators to support this bill and whatever else is necessary to protect our electrical power grid and thereby our country and its citizens.Dorothy Woodworth Homosassa

C4SUNDAY, AUGUST10, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLECOMMENTARY EndorsementLETTERS Elect McPheeters to BOCCAs a longtime resident of Citrus County, I highly recommend voting for Renee Christopher-McPheeters to be Citrus County Commissioner, District 2. I am in my 80s, and Renee has always been helpful, as I do not drive. Also, Renee has been working to get my road, North Reynolds Avenue, paved. Lets get on the right track and elect Renee ChristopherMcPheeters as county commissioner.Joyce Hall Crystal RiverRe-elect Powers to school boardAs a recently retired 30-year Citrus County teacher, for the past 10 years I have observed behind the scenes, and I know that Linda Powers is tireless, relentless, focused, and above all, she now has 10 years of experience on the board! She is a no-nonsense go-getter and never fails to work above and beyond what is required when it comes to addressing the needs of our students. I have personally seen her bristle, yet stay calm and professional but forceful when she sensed the danger of any learning opportunities for our students possibly getting overlooked. Linda is very focused and down to earth in her approach to education and she does not suffer any political illusions about what works and what does not. Linda Powers was the major force and proponent behind acquiring the International Baccalaureate Program in Citrus County. She heard the requests from parents, did the research, and recognized the need. She steadfastly continued to campaign for the support of the program which took years of planning, work, and support to implement. Now, due to her hard work, and the dedication of the staff and teachers it is a thriving and successful program to challenge our students and in which they can be very proud of their achievements. This program can open many doors of opportunities for our students. Linda is also well known and well regarded for her passion for education in our community. She stays involved in organizations always focused on connecting with opportunities for Citrus County students. As a strong advocate for the Arts in education, she has been a member of the Art Festival Committee for several years as the liaison for the schools. When she saw the school art exhibits exposed to the sun, wind, and rain, she became the force behind acquiring the tents to shelter the students work and for acquiring the School Zone banner. Linda was recently recognized by the Florida Art Educators Association as a Friend of the Arts. These are only examples of her accomplishments and Linda Powers is not ready to quit now. She loves working for our students and still has a lot she wants to give. With her record and her experience, I hope everyone will join me to vote for her to return to our school board.Connie Phillips Crystal River How does it stay running?Im reading in this mornings paper (July 21) that somebody thinks Sheriff (Jeff) Dawsy should buy one of these three-quartermillion-dollar anti-mine vehicles. My thoughts are: Did the government buy 400 million or 500 million of these things? I doubt it. So what Im wondering is, where do you find spare parts for a vehicle like that with a limited production? I doubt if you can go up to your local Chevy dealer and buy parts. So, youve got a $2,000 vehicle thats going to sit in your backyard and rust out for the next 100 years because you dont have parts to keep it running. Eh.Looking for mosquito truckIm just wondering if the Citrus County Mosquito Control is on vacation, if theyve been defunded or run out of money because in Sugarmill Woods, we havent seen them in over a month and the mosquitoes are just terrible and were concerned. ... Hopefully, sooner or later we can get the Mosquito Control back out into Sugarmill Woods. Last year they did an excellent job. Say no to negative campaigningWouldnt it be nice if one election time we could have whoevers running for governor, mayor, president, talk about the good things that theyre going to do and not spend all their time talking and digging up the bad things the other guy is doing? You get so tired of listening to them, you dont even want to vote. I think I would vote for the guy at the gas station. He always has a big smile on his face and something nice to say about everybody.Careful what you wish forThis is in reference to the goodol-boy club. In the paper today (July 24), the article on the front page, Adams pal targets Webb, Kenney. And I hope that the folks, all the voters in Citrus County, uses their head and doesnt go on emotions when it comes time to vote in or to be voting for our commissioners. I know taxes have gone up. I definitely dont like that, either. But if you recall, Scott Adams always said, Weve got to break up this goodol-boy club. And what are we going to do? Were going to put two of his people that Strange is backing so they can have the good-ol-boy club again and thats what Adams kept trying to go after. He didnt want to improve (County Road) 491 unless they took out the medical corridor. Straightening the stub-out The person who wrote in to Sound Off this morning (July 24) about selling the stub-out at the end of South Oak Village Boulevard in Sugarmill Woods is misinformed. First, Citrus County vacates rights-of way many times. Why is this person not upset with those vacations? It is a lawful procedure. Second, and most importantly, the stub-out at the end of South Oak Village Boulevard is not large enough to be considered a sellable lot. I do not understand why the Chronicle did not footnote that Sound Off opinion with the correct information. You often do informative footnotes that help explain things for your readers. Why not this time?Letter shows common senseI just read in the Chronicle today, Thursday, July 24, on page A10, letter to the editor, Time to live within budget, written by Frank Heath. This is an outstanding letter with good common sense. Thank you, Frank, for taking the time to write this letter. I certainly appreciate it and we are on the same page. Amen and goodbye.Diversity needed on boardI hope voters remember that we need diversification on the board of county commissioners, not a group of likeminded candidates who have a mutual agenda. U.S. 19 not county issue The median on U.S. 19 is a disaster. Nobodys maintaining it, cutting the weeds. Theyre very tall. You have to wonder, why cant we maintain our existing roads, especially the one that runs through the center of Citrus County and presents the county in either a good light or a bad light when they waste all this money on the medical corridor? Poor use of our taxpayers money, not maintaining existing assets and spending money on new, useless assets.Editors note:Your blame is misplaced. U.S. 19 is a state road and its up to the Florida Department of Transportation to maintain it. The county has no role.Voting against negative campaigningWell, me and the missus have made up our minds; were going to vote for the candidates being attacked in the negative mailer put out by Scott Adams pal.Call, they will comeI dont mind you talking about the government, but dont talk bad about Mosquito Control. I have never called them and they didnt come. They advertise in the local paper. People write in saying they dont know what to do. Go read your paper. They advertise in the paper to call them if you have mosquitoes. So, Sugarmill Woods, if they called and they havent come, I find that hard to believe. So just wake up and call them.Observe safety on the waterWeve lived on the water for 30 years in Crystal River and we see so often when we go out with our pontoon boat, so many adults that are letting their children ride on the front of the boat. These people cant see the child. It only takes a half a second for that child to fall into the water and be seriously injured by the motor, especially people with pontoon boats. They cannot see these children. Weve wished so many times that we had the authority to stop them and either give them hell or issue a citizens arrest ticket. Please, adults, watch your children on these boats. Dont let them ride in the front. SOUND OFFCALL563-0579 Letters toTHE EDITOR Tired of negative campaigningI received a robocall recently which sickened me with the disparaging, negative and untrue comments made regarding Commissioner J.J. Kenney and Mr. Winn Webb. This call made me decide not to sit idly by, but instead write this letter in an effort to inform my fellow Citrus County citizens of the desire of a few disrespectful political operatives who without facts denigrate these two gentlemen. I am a retired naval officer (10 years enlisted) 35 years and have lived in Citrus County for 14 years. I have volunteered for the Citrus County Clerk of Courts as well as being the president of the Beverly Hills Recreation Association and President of the Beverly Hills Civic Association. I assiduously watch BOCC meetings and continue to be appalled at some of the divisive actions by one of the commissioners toward his fellow commissioners. Commissioner Kenney and ex-Commissioner Webb both served their country and their county for many years; I reiterate both their country and county in a professional and honorable manner. Their views are well known and available to every citizen of Citrus County by providing them publicly in various public forums as well as most | recently in response to questionsof the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce to all of the candidates. I urge my fellow Citrus County citizens to think long and hard on who they vote for in this upcoming election. Those who will work together to continue to improve the future of Citrus County or those who desire take it down for their own benefit? Fred Hale Beverly HillsSpreading godless paranoiaMr. Gerald Scott Antley is entitled to his opinions under our U.S. Constitution. However, dont presume or present opinion as fact. Mr. Antley combined his opinions of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, Thomas Jefferson, American humanists, Jeffersons and Christianity and the godless agenda conspiracy. Americans United for Separation of Church and State is a nonpartisan educational organization dedicated to preserving the constitutional principle of church-state separation as the only way to ensure religious freedom for all Americans. The Rev. Barry W. Lynn, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, and civil liberties lawyer serves as its executive director. During Colonial-era Virginia, the state had established religious and mandatory support, through church taxes, for the Anglican faith, regardless of personal religious belief or non-belief. We all owe a debt of gratitude to that Virginia General Assembly which preserved that fundamental liberty by passing the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom. Our Founders took the statute as a model for the principle of religious liberty in the Bill of Rights, when five years latter, the First Amendment of our Bill of Rights followed the Virginia statutes model, stating, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. In a Jan. 1, 1802, letter, President Thomas Jefferson wrote of the intended relationship between religion and government: I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibit the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between church and state. That right in the United States Constitution has preserved religious freedom for both believers and nonbelievers for over 200 years. Jeffersons wall of separation between church and state was first noted by the Supreme Court in an 1878 opinion by Chief Justice Morrison Waite. Justice Hugo Black later reaffirmed the walls significance in the landmark case Everson v. Board of Education (1947). Black wrote In the words of Jefferson, the clause against establishment of religion by law was intended to erect a wall of separation between church and state. The wall forbids government to actually or effectively favor one religion over another, favor religion over nonreligion and vice-versa. In 1816 Jefferson constructed his own Bible, The philosophy of Jesus of Nazareth by removing miracles, angels, prophecy, the trinity and the divinity of Jesus. He also excluded sections of the four gospels which include the resurrection. It would appear that Mr. Jefferson was a deist, and not a Christian by todays standard of Christian beliefs. As for humanism, it is a rational philosophy informed by science, inspired by art, and motivated by compassion. Affirming the dignity of each human being, it supports liberty and opportunity consonant with social and planetary responsibility. Free of theism and other supernatural beliefs, Humanists believe true moral and ethical behavior is not contingent upon fear of punishment in hell, or expectation of a reward in heaven. A 2012 Pew study found 12 percent of Americans have no religious affiliation. Of those, 6 percent are atheists or agnostic. Isnt wonderful that we all (minority and majority) have equal protection under the First Amendment of our Constitution. Since none of the 545 members in the three branches of U.S government have admitted to being godless, this may alleviate the paranoiaof the misinformed. Augie Nero InvernessTime to give back to taxpayersRight now we are paying Duke Energy a tax on our electricity usage. To not build a new power plant. Also we bailed out big banks to the tune of billions. We the people should mandate the banks to supply low-interest loans for the installation of solar tiles or panels on our buildings. Any electricity fed back to Duke Energy would be reimbursed to the ratepayer at a rate that would repay the loan. Its past time for the corporations that have fouled our air and water and caused the Great Recession to pay for their greed and misdeeds.Robert Husted Hernando

Vote Webb for commissionWe find ourselves facing the need to replace the leadership in the county government again. Many things have to be considered; not least of these is integrity. A candidates life must be looked at as a guideline for the future. Did the candidate try to lead in a positive way by participating in civic or fraternal organizations? Did the candidate serve his country at peril to his life? Did the candidate work with youth programs, serve on PTO boards, or work with youth safety programs? Winn Webb did. Positive leadership comes in as a close second. Did the past find the candidate working to learn positive leadership skills and were there events in the candidates life that would have enhanced positive leadership skills? Webb has served in the U.S. Navy, earning the rank of E-5 and retired as a deputy sheriff of Citrus County. Winn Webb is the last living charter member of The Herbert Surber American Legion Post 225 of Floral City and is a member of the Citrus County Veterans Coalition. Winn serves on the Floral City Heritage Council board of directors and is a member of the National Association of Retired Law Enforcement as well as Agriculture Alliance. As a county commissioner, Webb has graduated from the academy as a certified county commissioner as well as the advanced county commissioners program. Winn served on the Withlacoochee Regional Planning Council, the Transportation Planning Organization, the Withlacoochee Regional Water Supply Authority, the Small County Coalition and the Florida Association of Counties, and was chairman of the Transportation Disadvantaged Coordinating Board. Just for good measure, Winn represented Citrus County on the 5th Judicial Medical Examiners board. Winn Webb served with honor on the board proving to be a fiscal conservative and a rational chairman. There will be no learning curve for this candidate.Fred Daniels Floral CityElect Howard to school boardThirteen years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Beverly Howard. At the time I was serving as assistant principal at Citrus Springs Elementary School where Bev was applying for a first-grade teaching position. My principal, Lane Vick, and I offered her the job and soon she began her first teaching position in the Citrus County School System. It so happened that my office was right across the hall from Bevs classroom. I spent a lot of time watching her and how she was transforming that classroom into an amazing learning place. She radiated her love of learning and her little 6-yearold students were mesmerized by her enthusiasm and sheer joy as she taught them. Those little ones and so many that followed thrived and began their own journey of life-long learning. Bevs peers also recognized her as an amazing teacher and a few years later selected her to be the Citrus Springs Elementary Teacher of the Year. A few years after that she was once again selected to be a Teacher of the Year, this time by the staff of Homosassa Elementary School. That year Bev was selected to be the Citrus County Teacher of the Year. This says volumes about the kind of extraordinary teacher that she is. Bev went on to work at the county level as a social studies specialist. During that time she gained tremendous insight into the operation of the district. She worked in all of the schools and learned about the bigger picture of running a school system. She retired last May and soon decided that she was not finished. She had so much more to offer to help make our schools the best they can be. She threw her hat into the ring for the District 4 school board position. I feel strongly that the excellence that Bev has displayed as a teacher can translate into being a vital part of our school board. We all know that there are many challenges facing our school system. We must have people in service on the school board that have the knowledge and skills to take our schools to the next level. Bev brings strong knowledge of curriculum and instruction. She understands the standards and assessments. Even more important she knows how to use them. She can be a part of a team that will bring about a school system where all students thrive and leave school prepared to enter the world of work as productive citizens. As a school board member she will ask the hard questions to make sure priorities are in the right order. She will make sure that tax dollars are spent wisely to ensure a wellrun system. She will spend time in our schools and listen intently to all stakeholders. Bev Howard has the knowledge, energy and true grit to get the job done. Join me in casting your vote for the very best district 4 candidate.Cicely Thomas Retired principal HomosassaVote Dodd for school boardDoug Dodd has my vote for Citrus County School Board, District 3. He has the educational background, experience, integrity and commitment to serve as an outstanding member of the school board. With a masters degree in education and bachelors degrees in criminal justice and business administration, Doug has a diverse and valuable background of education to offer in service as a school board member. He would bring valuable experience and proven leadership if he is elected to the Citrus County School Board. In his over 26 years of service in law enforcement in Citrus County, including 10 years as a school resource officer, Doug has been an exemplary leader and public servant. He has served in leadership capacities in many areas during his career with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. At a time when partisan politics and self-serving political agendas are common place in many levels of government, I am confident that Doug would serve with integrity and a commitment to the public trust that an elected official should always demonstrate. His priorities would be service to students, staff members, school communities, and the citizens of Citrus County. Doug has conservative values and would be diligent in effectively and efficiently managing tax payers dollars as a Citrus County School Board member. He has shown a commitment to youth through coaching at the high school level and in youth leagues, by teaching Sunday School in the Youth Department at Cornerstone Baptist Church, and in coordinating leadership development programs for middle and high school students. Doug has a genuine interest in people and is an excellent communicator. He would be a school board member who would stand strong on principles and values while working very effectively as a team member with the other school board members and the Superintendent of Schools. With his professional experience, training, proven leadership and successful career in law enforcement, Doug is an ideal candidate for school board. His choice to run for the Citrus County School Board is because he has a heart and commitment to public service in Citrus County. Doug is devoted to his family and is a lifelong resident of Citrus County. He has demonstrated a personal interest in our youth and the future of our community. I strongly believe Doug will serve as a Citrus County School Board member with diligence, excellence, and integrity. He will always seek to make the right decisions for the right reasons. Doug has my support and I hope the voters will give him the opportunity to continue in public service by voting for him on Aug. 26 for School Board District 3.Jim Hughes InvernessRe-elect Kennedy to school boardThis recommendation is on behalf of Mr. Thomas Kennedy. Mr. Kennedy is the incumbent in District 1 school board race. As a 24-year veteran Citrus County educator, I feel privileged to write on his behalf. Thomas is very involved in the daily activities of the school system. He is well aware of the challenges teachers and students face in todays classroom due to his frequent visits in classes in the county schools. I have been engaged in teaching a lesson when I suddenly realized that Mr. Kennedy was sitting in the room with my students. He relates well to the students and focuses on their everchanging and -challenging educational world. Mr. Kennedy accepts his role of chairman of the school board very seriously. He leads the board by focusing on the impending needs of our students. Citrus County has recently been ranked as one of the top 10 districts in the state of Florida. It is refreshing that Mr. Kennedy is asking for improvement, not change. Being one of the top 10 of the 67 Florida school districts indicates that we are on the correct path. As a classroom teacher, I feel that Citrus County excels because of the unique, hardworking individuals who make up our district from our top leadership, school board members, administrators, teachers, staff and students who unite to make our school system outstanding. On a personal level, I am endorsing Thomas Kennedy because he is a conscientious and empathetic individual who has worked diligently to overcome his personal dyslexia learning disability. He is a great example to students that the stars are your limits and that anything can be accomplished through hard work. Thomas Kennedy is without a doubt the person most capable of addressing Citrus Countys academic needs.Tracy Rash Crystal RiverVote for proven leadershipFor those Citrus County residents who still care about our county and the direction its future may have, please pay close attention to the commercial about Winn Webb and J.J. Kenney showing how they should be run out of town. Dont be fooled! The group that ran this ad should be the ones to keep out of any county commissioners business. These two great men dont deserve this comment against them. Y ou have Winn Webb, who worked for Citrus County sheriffs office and is a lifelong resident and a past commissioner and a veteran who served in the Navy for our country. And J.J. Kenney, who is a present commissioner and has devoted his life to serving in the military. Be careful on Aug. 26 when you vote who we put in District 2 and 4. Our county is in bad shape. We need good leadership, not a group of good ol boys who are only for their own personal welfare.Mary White HomosassaCOMMENTARYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST10, 2014 C5 Celebrity Pet Paw ty Tickets: Call Lois at (352) 382-0777 For information: Call Mary Lee (352) 503-3237 Tickets: Call Lois at (352) 382-0777 For information: Call Mary Lee (352) 503-3237 Celebrity Bartenders: Jewel Lamb and Maggie Hypes & Celebrity Pet Photo Contest Monday, August 1 1, 2014 5:30pm 7:00pm at Fat Cat Grill in Crystal River 000ISDZ Thursday, August 14, 2014 CITRUS COUNTY AUDITORIUM DOORS OPEN: 6PM FORUM STARTS AT 7PM Meet the local candidates and hear their positions.

Elect Jane DoeRecently, the Sound Off section of the Chroniclefeatured a call titled, Landmark idea commendable lauding the visions of the founder and developer, Sam Kellner of Beverly Hills and the pioneers who contributed so much to Citrus County. I was at the same meeting that Renee Christopher McPheeters discussed her dream and desires for a landmark to Mr. Kellner and the wonderful people that homesteaded the houses that Sam built. Her wishes at this presentation were that her name not be used, as these thoughts were from the heart and not for campaigning. Sorry, Mrs. McPheeters,but the Sound Off call credited the female who is a candidate for County Commission District 2. Thats you. The dream that came to fruition by Mr. Kellner provided reasonable, affordable housing for retirees who wanted to settle down in a Little Mayberry where there are places of worship, veterans organizations, recreation, a park and a civic center, along with the beautiful Nature Coast to enjoy in their later years. The pioneers contributions to the community were and still are exemplary. They formed any club that you can think of including political and community assistance. They volunteered for everything to the betterment of all Citrus County. Her comments about the vacant houses and the memories they hold are nostalgic. These folks came down from up north and other places, bought furniture, cars and attracted doctors, fueling the countys economy and way of life. She appeared very sad about remembering Lou and Mary and others who are now with their Lord. They, and the other pioneers, should be remembered when you look at these homes today. She also went on to say other developments, e.g. the Highlands, Sugarmill Woods, and the list goes on and on, that provided and still provide the economic and social stimulus to prosper as a community. They too, have their pioneers. After listening to Ms. McPheeters, I came away with the in-depth feeling for her compassion about Citrus County and its citizens. If you are looking to elect a smooth-talking politician, a brain surgeon or a big-money candidate, dont vote for Renee McPheeters. She is just a plain Jane Doe. You can believe in what she says. You can believe she will do what she says for you and me. I still strongly believe her idea of a landmark to Sam Kellner and the pioneers who have passed on is more than warranted. Yes, it is commendable.Tom Cooper LecantoElect Dodd to school boardDoug Dodd is the clear choice for the School Board District 3 seat. And why, you ask? Well, I met then Lt. Doug Dodd in 2006 when he led the Sheriffs Office Citizens Academy. I learned a great amount and Doug did his usual magnificent job with the class. People who have attended the Citizens Academy know that he is a great communicator and teacher. Soon after, it was my good fortune to collect Doug as a personal friend. Even though I live in Sugarmill Woods and Doug lives in Inverness, we continue to keep in touch. Doug has demonstrated quality leadership throughout his stellar career. He has significant experience in dealing with people, something essential to a qualified member of the school board. Our countys school budget is more than $210 million annually. I would like a new set of eyes looking at this budget and I trust Doug to make wise financial decisions. He is someone we can count on to ask tough questions and discover new solutions. Doug has developed budgets and written grants, and he even has a bachelors degree in business administration and a masters degree in education. What a natural fit for the Citrus County School Board! Doug is pleasant to be around, hes a husband and father of the first order, and is a well-respected professional with a desire to serve. This is why he is the clear choice for the School Board District 3 seat on Aug. 26, 2014.Terry Balderson HomosassaElect McPheeters to BOCCAs a prior Air Force medic, I came to Citrus County one year ago. Renee Christopher-McPheeters, candidate for County Commissioner District 2, went above and beyond to provide transportation imperative to my getting to VA appointments. There has been innumerable ways and services provided to me due to Renees commitment to vets. I highly endorse Renee ChristopherMcPheeters to be elected Commissioner District 2 of Citrus County.Susan Aquila Crystal RiverRe-elect Kennedy to school boardI am writing to endorse Thomas Kennedy for reelection to the Citrus County School Board. Thomas is a passionate supporter of public education and has a comprehensive understanding of all of the students needs. He is open-minded and has always listened to each voice and opinion of others. He respects the difficulties teachers face in the classroom and strives to ensure they have the necessary tools so that each student may succeed. Thomas has developed a strong working relationship with legislators by understanding why policies are created and where resources should be allocated. He has also created an education blog www.ThomasTalks.org that he spends countless hours on to keep each parent up-to-date and informed on school affairs and other areas of their childs education. Thomas has a keen awareness of the problems and challenges adolescents face in their teenage years. He uses this awareness when making decisions that affect each student. He will continue to be a strong and vibrant advocate for programs and policies that benefit all of the children and young adults in our public schools. Thomas has been highly active and visible in our schools and communities. He is passionate about our children and our community as he has shown time and time again through not just words but his actions. Please vote for Thomas Kennedy in the election on Aug. 26.Paula Lee Crystal RiverSupport Webb for BOCCOn Aug. 14, the Citrus County Chroniclewill host a political forum at the county auditorium. The forum setting allows the public to meet, see and listen to the various candidates as they respond to questions and make their own presentations. Of the various political races in contention, one in particular, the District 4 County Commission race, with only two candidates, has generated considerable public interest. Candidate Winn Webb, a former county commissioner, stands out. His commitment to Citrus County and its citizens will be readily apparent at the forum. A native of the county, he served many years as a deputy sheriff and was very popular as county commissioner. He is well known throughout Citrus County. The acrimony and discord within the present county commission has been apparent to most county residents. The commission, among the many responsibilities it is charged with, has to deal with many issues ranging from mundane to complex requiring thorough study and considerable discussion. Ideally, the county commission candidate has to be highly competent, qualified, fiscally responsible, dedicated to the preservation of the countys resources and quality of life for its citizens and conscientious by nature. These qualities and traits define Winn Webb and make him the standout choice. Additionally, he can add a no nonsense presence to the commission. On Aug. 26, the primary will be held. The District 4 commissioner will be decided on that date. It is important to have a large voter turnout to ensure the best candidate is selected. Vote for Winn Webb, a Republican. Remember, any registered voter can vote in the District 4 commission race.James Griffin InvernessVote McPheeters for BOCCI plan on voting for Renee ChristopherMcPheeters to be my county commissioner, District 2. Renee is concerned for the welfare of seniors on fixed incomes, and that includes myself.

Passion for primary care BUSINESSSection DSUNDAY, AUGUST 10, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleDr. Ghassan Hasan has recently been named chief of medicine at Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center. MEGANCARELLA CorrespondentIn his role as newly appointed chief of medicine for Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center, Dr. Ghassan Hasan serves as an advocate for members of the medical staff to the hospital administration. He extols the high quality of the physicians he represents and appreciates the support the hospital provides to its physicians. Hasan is passionate about the United States and medicine, especially his chosen specialty of family medicine. Growing up in his native Syria, he dreamed of emigrating to the United States to study and practice medicine. He took advantage of an opportunity to attend medical school in Cuba. My father said Cuba is close to the United States; its a good first step, he said. Hasan realized his dream when he was accepted to a family medicine residency program at the University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine. He worked as a primary care physician in Broward County and earned his board certification in family medicine before relocating to Citrus County in 2012. If you go into the field of medicine, the kind of personality you have matches the specialty, he said. You have to do what you like. Thats why I chose medicine, especially primary care. Primary care physicians family medicine, general and internal medicine and pediatric specialists are crucial to any health system, said Hasan, adding that studies have shown that an adequate number of primary care practitioners in a community can improve health outcomes and reduce healthcare costs. We focus on patients and their families as whole and social beings, he said. The primary care doctor becomes like the father of the patient, you know your patients from head to toe. You know all about them, family status, work conditions, what stress they have in their lives. You have to know when to send your patient to a subspecialist. Hasan says he has no concerns about quality when he refers a patient to a local specialist. As chief of medicine, I also represent eye doctors, neurologists, infectious disease specialists, gastroenterologists, pulmonary doctors, many specialties, he said. We have some of the best specialists Ive ever worked with. They are excellent, super-qualified. Hasan chose to establish a family medicine practice in Citrus County after visiting a friend here. I loved the place, he said. I wanted to get away from traffic and crowds. Its safer here and the climate here is very nice. An avid hunter, he appreciates being close to good hunting sites. But the main draw for him was having access to waterways. I was born on the Mediterranean Sea. If I dont see the water, I feel like something is missing in my life, he said. It is the practice of medicine that gives him the most satisfaction, however. I chose medicine because work is a contribution. When you contribute to the individual and the community you gain so much, he said. There is nothing more rewarding and satisfying than the challenge of helping other human beings. Dr. Ghassan Hasan is new chief of medicine at Seven Rivers New adviser may bring new ideas DEAR BRUCE: Im in my mid-80s. I have 86 percent of my investments in stocks and mutual funds. My broker does not think bonds are a good investment. I have $260,000 in a portfolio and $100,000 in an annuity. Do you think he has me very overboard in stocks for my age? Is it much of an expense to go to a new adviser? O.Z. D EAR O.Z.: I happen to share your brokers point of view, but it seems to me that you are far too heavily invested in stocks and the annuity. You can always go to see a new adviser and ask, What can you do for me? Tell him or her what you have, etc., and you may be impressed with the new advisers advice and wish to switch. I do believe that you should be in stocks and very selective mutual funds, as many of the funds are paying minuscule returns. I agree that bonds are a poor investment right now, but as interest rates start to crawl up they may look more attractive. D EAR BRUCE: I am a 90year-old widow who owns her home. My only income is Social Security. I fear I might outlive the money I have left in my IRA ($83,000) and a couple of small savings accounts totaling $25,000. I have become very frugal and have a great deal of pride. Today I called my bank and asked them to send me paperwork for opening a savings account and an IRA transfer. I expect to transfer only $10,000 to the savings and accept a penalty for the IRA transfer. When my IRA matured, the $200-a-month interest income became $11; the interest had been 3 percent and now its 0.02 percent. I no longer have any CDs. When they matured, I put the money into my savings account. What is your opinion? M.P D EAR M.P .: With your modest income, I dont see any reason for you to completely close out your IRA since the tax advantage would be modest. When your IRA matured, the $200a-month interest became $11 because the IRA is paying almost no interest. You mentioned you put your money into a savings account when your CDs matured. That is a self-defeating proposition. I would be interested to know what a stock broker could do with your $100,000-plus investment. A broker should easily be able to find a very conservative 4 percent to 5 percent return. Frankly, I think he could do even better. I realize this still is going to give you only $5,000 a year, but that is certainly a lot more than the couple of pennies you are receiving on savings accounts and/or mutual funds. D EAR BRUCE: There is a modest estate ($200,000) with five children as equal heirs. One of the children refuses to sign paperwork to settle the estate because he thinks that he deserves more than the others. As a result, he is demanding that his siblings pay him $2,500 among the four of them in exchange for his signature. This is likely less than it will cost to litigate, which he has threatened. Some want to do it for the sake of resolution, whereas others disagree because its extortion and blackmail. What do you think? W.K. D EAR W.K.: You say this is extortion and blackmail? Of course it is! You didnt indicate why he feels he deserves more, but the reality is that the $10,000 would likely be less than it would cost to litigate, so it would be cheaper to get the thing settled. I think the answer, unfortunately, is to swallow hard and pay. D EAR BRUCE: I am the primary cardholder on several of our credit card accounts, with my husband being secondary. Should I die first, will he have any problems using the cards? D .P D EAR D .P.: If you should die, theoretically the accounts should be closed. The reality is as long as your husband keeps making the payments in a proper fashion, the likelihood is no one would ever notice that you are no longer in the picture. You didnt mention your ages, but if you are long in years as long as the payments continue to be made, its no sweat. If your husband is a young man, it would be better for him to notify the card companies and change the account to his name, or alternatively, put the account in his name now.Send questions to bruce@ brucewilliams.com.

D2SUNDAY, AUGUST10, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEBUSINESS BUSINESS DIGEST Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop donations JOAN McCULLOUGH/Special to the ChronicleThree area women came to the attention of the Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop ladies recently and were presented checks on June 30. Mandy Benzing is a single mother with two children living at home and had big hopes of beginning a service dog training business. It was becoming a reality, but on the very day she and her business partner, Amy Derry, received their nonprofit status she was given the news she had acute myeloid leukemia. The Thrift Shop women voted to give her $1,000 toward medical expenses. Pictured, from left, are: Thrift Shop volunteers Barbara Hayes and Karen Keen, president, presenting the check to Mandy Benzing and sons Gabriel and Armand. JOAN McCULLOUGH/Special to the ChronicleThe second Dunnellon Thrift Shop recipient is well known in the Dunnellon community, having worked at the Chamber of Commerce for a few years. Mitze Robinson has a rare disease called sceromyxedema (only 30 known cases in the country), which has made it very difficult to get financial assistance. She and husband Jerry received a $500 gift toward her expenses. Pictured, from left, are: Thrift Shop volunteers Jan Salter and summer intern Olivia Pryor presenting a check to Mitze and Jerry Robinson. JOAN McCULLOUGH/Special to the ChronicleThe third Dunnellon Thrift Shop donation recipient of $1,000 is Elizabeth Rezack, mother of two little boys, who has recently undergone surgery to remove arteriovenous malformations discovered after two emergency room visits for intense headaches and a referral to Shands in Gainesville. There, she underwent two procedures which left her with seizures and the inability to speak. Treatments are continuing at Shands, which means her partner, William Warner, is juggling trips to Gainesville while making certain the children are looked after. Pictured, from left, are: Thrift Shop volunteers Jan Pinkerton and Betty Poole presenting a check to Elizabeth Rezack, William Warner and sons William and Jeffrey.

Dianna and Jim McLean Clayton Jeck Not so golden: Wealth gap lasting into retirement MICHAEL HILL Associated PressWilliam Kistler views retirement like someone tied to the tracks and watching a train coming. Its looming and threatening, but theres little he can do. Kistler, a 63-year-old resident of Golden, Colorado, has been unable to build up a nest egg for himself and his wife with his modest salary at a nonprofit. He has saved little in a 401(k) over the past decade, after spending most of his working life self-employed. That puts him far behind many wealthier Americans approaching retirement. There is not enough to retire with, he said. Its completely frightening, to tell you the truth. And I, like a lot of people, try not to think about it too much, which is actually a problem. With traditional pensions becoming rarer in the private sector, and lower-paid workers less likely to have access to an employer-provided retirement plan, there is a growing gulf in the retirement savings of the wealthy and people with lower incomes. That, experts say, could exacerbate an already widening wealth gap across America, as more than 70 million baby boomers head into retirement many of them with skimpy reserves. Because retirement savings are ever more closely tied to income, the widening gulf between the rich and those with less promises to continue and perhaps worsen after workers reach retirement age. That is likely to put pressure on government services and lead even more Americans to work well into what is supposed to be their golden years. Increasingly, financial security for retirees reflects how much they have accumulated during their working career things like 401(k) accounts, other savings and home equity. Highly educated, dual income couples tend to do better under this system. The future looks bleaker for people with less education, lower incomes or health issues, as well as for single parents, said Karen Smith, a senior fellow at the Urban Institute, a Washington think tank. We do find rising inequality, said Smith, who added that its a problem if those at the top are See WEALTH/ Page D4

The eight-week program does not require a physician referral. Under the direction of Amy Freeman, Citrus Memorials certified diabetes educator, the course will cover the following topics: Detecting fat and calorie intake; how to plan a healthful meal;jump-starting your metabolism; talking back to negative thoughts; managing stress; and staying motivated. Classes meet in the Citrus Memorial Auditorium at 402 W. Grace St., Inverness. Classes are scheduled from 4:30to 5:30 p.m. The cost is $10 per class. Those interested may preregister by calling the Citrus Memorial Diabetes Center at 352-341-6110. Get Serious Citrus classes begin in September Early voting dates for the primary election is Aug. 15 to 23, including Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Early voting will take place at four sites in the county, the Central Ridge Library, the Crystal River Elections Office at Meadowcrest, the Homosassa Public Library and the Inverness City Hall. Any eligible registered voter may vote at any of the early voting sites. Vote-bymail ballots can be turned at any early vote site, during the early voting period. Know where your polling place is located. Some changes have occurred that affect voters in precincts 301 and 305. The polling place for precinct 301 has moved from the National Guard Armory, 8551 W. Venable St. to St. Timothys Lutheran Church, 1070 N. Suncoast Blvd. in Crystal River. The armory is undergoing repairs and is unavailable for voting this election cycle. The polling place for precinct 305, formerly named the Christian Center Church, has been changed to the Apostolic Christian Center; the address remains the same, 7961 W. Green Acres Street in Homosassa. The polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day. Florida is a closed primary state. This means that voters are limited to choosing candidates in their own party in the primary election; however, in the race for County Commissioner District 4 between Scott Carnahan and Winn Webb, both of the candidates are in the Republican Party. Therefore, the race becomes a universal primary and will be decided in the primary election. The race for County Commissioner District 4, will be on all ballots, allowing all voters to vote in this election. Florida law requires that you show photo and signature ID (valid Florida driver license or Florida identification card) when you vote at an early vote site or at the polls on Election Day. Sample ballots are being mailed to voters who have not made a request for a vote by mail ballot. Mark the sample ballot and use it as a guide when you go to vote. If you would like extra copies of the sample ballot, call the elections office at 352-341-6740, or visit the Supervisor of Elections website at www.votecitrus.com. Name and out of county address changes must be submitted on a voter registration application in writing, which requires your signature, date of birth or voter registration number. Vote by mail continues to be a popular method of voting. Therefore, your signature becomes even more important. Your signature on the mail ballot envelope must match the signature on file at the elections office. Signatures change over time for many reasons, so now is the time to make sure an updated signature is on record. The primary election is Tuesday, Aug. 26.

D4SUNDAY, AUGUST10, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEBUSINESS seeing disproportionate gains from economic growth. Incomes for the highestearning 1 percent of Americans soared 31 percent from 2009 through 2012, after adjusting for inflation, according to data compiled by Emmanuel Saez, an economist at University of California, Berkeley. For everyone else, it inched up an average of 0.4 percent. Researchers at the liberal Economic Policy Institute say households in the top fifth of income saw median retirement savings increase from $45,539 in 1989 to $160,000 in 2010 in inflation-adjusted dollars. For households in the bottom fifth, median retirement savings were down from $8,433 in 1989 to $8,000 in 2010, adjusted for inflation. The calculations did not include households without retirement savings. Employment Benefit Research Institute research director Jack VanDerhei found that in households where annual income is less than $25,000, nine in 10 saved less than $10,000, up slightly from 2009. For households with six-figure incomes, 42 percent saved at least $250,000, up from 34 percent five years earlier. The days of retirees being able to count on set monthly payments from pensions continue to fade among non-government workers. Only 13 percent of private-sector workers now participate in defined benefit plans, compared with a third of such workers in 1985. Theyve been eclipsed by defined contribution plans, often 401(k)s, in which employers match a portion of employee contributions. Americans know they need to save for retirement. The trick for many is actually doing it. Its estimated that about half of private-sector workers dont take part in a retirement plan at their current job. Over the years, all Ive been able to do, especially as a single parent, is just pay your bills every month, said Susan McNamara, a 62-year-old adjunct professor from the Boston area. Anything thats left over is used up when your car breaks down or when the furnace breaks down. ... Theres never anything left over, ever. McNamara is divorced and her son is now grown. But she has had heart issues linked to cancer in 2004 and related financial worries. She sold her home to meet expenses. McNamara has a defined contribution plan from past stints as a full-time professor, but its balance is under $50,000. Or consider Kistler, who makes $41,000 a year working as a benefits counselor for a nonprofit health care provider. He has no substantial savings beyond the 401(k) worth roughly $19,000, and he has debt. He plans to keep working. Kistler is philosophical about being on the short end of a retirement gap, though he wonders what will happen when boomers in his financial situation begin retiring by the millions. This next 10 to 15 years is going to be quite interesting, he said. EBRI, a Washingtonbased nonpartisan research group, projects that more than 55 percent of baby boomers and the generation that follows them, Generation X, will have enough money to last through retirement. But EBRI also found the least wealthy boomer and Gen X households are far more likely to run short of money in retirement. Under some models, 43 percent of those in the lowest quarter run short of money in the first year of retirement. VanDerhei, EBRIs research director, said members of that group are relying mostly on Social Security and lacked consistent access to retirement plans over their careers. Many of those retirees will find that it wont be enough, David John of AARPs Public Policy Institute said, noting the average monthly Social Security retiree benefit last year was about $1,300. In the long run, if we have significant numbers of people retiring on Social Security and very little else, theres going to be a tremendous pressure on state and local governments for additional services, ranging from health to housing to libraries, John said. Theres going to be significant pressure on the national government to provide additional support. John said a good first step would be to ensure more workers have the ability to save through employer-sponsored retirement plans. For many, it will mean working to a later age and cutting back. In Brooklyn, 60-year-old Madeline Smith is already thinking about a modest future. While she has no illusions about living the little fairy tale of a cushy retirement, she also is confident she can get by, maybe working part-time, living simply or even renting out her house. Sometimes you have to learn to be a little bit more conservative, she said. I think a lot of people are learning that now as they get older. WEALTHContinued from Page D2 Special to the ChronicleTroy L. McNichols, AT&T Florida regional director, left, presented a check for $1,000 recently to United Way of Citrus County President and Chief Executive Officer Amy Meek and President-elect Dr. Vernon Lawter, vice president of the College of Central Florida Citrus Campus. AT&T donates to United Way Rules for seeking employment have changed Recently, a very nice person Ive known for some time remarked how great it is that we have one-stop career centers where job seekers may go for help. So far, so good. But then the individual expressed the opinion that these centers are a necessary resource because too often the unemployed are lazy and expect jobs to come to them. Insert sound of screeching brakes. As politely as possible, I said that lazy is not a term Id use to describe the job seekers with whom Ive been associated. Frustrated? Yes. Worried? Undoubtedly. Motivated? You betcha once they are empowered with tools and support. Frustrated because being out of work for any amount of time is difficult enough, yet Florida remains at the epicenter of longterm unemployment with the average length at 48.2 weeks; 35 percent are out of work a year or more. Worried because, even if they collect unemployment compensation and only an estimated 25 percent do the insurance benefits are stop-gap at best. Florida ties with Tennessee for the fifth-lowest maximum benefit in the nation at $275 a week, with an average weekly benefit of $232, and provides 16 weeks of coverage, one of just seven states offering fewer than 26 weeks. Remember, those receiving unemployment compensation do so because they were displaced through no fault of their own. The $4,400 maximum benefit is hardly a windfall, and equates to just 12 percent of the countys average annual wage of $35,472. But what do you do when those benefits run out or if you never collected them in the first place? Consider this: There are 4,061 unemployed in Citrus County; of those, an estimated 1,066 have been out of work 52 weeks or more and do not collect unemployment benefits. Given our previous discussion (see frustrated and worried), that can certainly lead to motivation. By definition, in order to be counted as unemployed, you have to be both jobless and actively seeking work. To be sure, not everyone who believes they are actively seeking employment is doing so effectively. This is because the labor market has changed so dramatically that what may have worked just a few years ago wont even get a foot in the door. How has it changed? Let me count the ways. 1. Job applications are 99.9 percent electronic though it is still advisable to bring printed copies of your resume to job fairs and actual interviews that means your resume and cover letter must be formatted to be read on screen. 2. Before it is going to be read by a hiring manager, your resume will likely be scanned for keywords by screening software that means your resume and cover letter must also be keyword rich, but only if relevant to the position and you possess the required skills. 3. If you make it through the screening process, a real-live person will spend less than 30 seconds on your resume, so gone are the one-size-fits all, its got to be targeted to that employer. 4. Hiring managers Google job applicants and search for social proof testimonials, endorsements and recommendations about abilities that appear on social networks. By the same token, objectionable behavior and language found on social profiles can also rule out otherwise qualified candidates. 5. Before you get a sit-down interview, you may likely get a screening phone call these can last 30 minutes and more, and the hiring process may very well entail candidate assessments to determine if you have the skills you say you have. You may be interviewed by panels as well as by individuals and, depending on the job, you may have to complete assignments in addition to providing work samples. 6. Before all this, youd better develop a personal brand that sets you apart from every other job candidate and you need to network with a purpose relationships, they say, have nearly replaced the resume. While there are always exceptions, anyone who throws a resume up on an online job board and expects offers to come flooding in will probably be disappointed. So, it is indeed great that the CareerSource Florida network of workforce development regions, which includes CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion, has nearly 100 one-stop career centers throughout the state. Ours are in Lecanto, Chiefland and Ocala; here are some fee-free ways our staff can help activate your job search: Upcoming workshops cover everything from computer basics to strategies to Nail That Interview to mastering the essentials of the Employ Florida Marketplace. A perfect place to start is with Navigating the New World of Work, which covers identifying employment abilities and transferable skills, job search strategies, targeted resume development and interviewing skills and follow-up tips. Participants also learn how to work more effectively with their Employment Consultant/Placement Specialist. Staff-assisted services match you with a placement specialist who will work with you oneon-one throughout your entire re-employment journey. Specialty programs assist job seekers with specific needs, including displaced professionals transitioning back into the workplace (Professional Networking Group), postsecondary students (Patriot Job Connection), disabled veterans, youths and those with barriers to employment such as background issues. Resources, resources, resources. Youll find everything you need in our Resource Rooms to help anytime you need access to computers and office equipment. Assessments are available whether you want to take an interest survey, find out how your skills may transfer to other occupations, or demonstrate to employers that you have the skills needed for the job. Does all this make a difference? Yes, when we work together. We closed out the fiscal year ending June 30 with 13,410 job placements for the region, an average of 1,118 a month, up from 10,782 the previous year. And thats a good thing because jobs are rebounding. In June, Citrus County had 147 employers registered with CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion and 353 posted jobs, a 17 percent increase over the month during the traditional summer slump no less and a 50 percent increase in open positions compared to June 2013. Regionally, 541 employers posted 1,720 jobs. If youd like one of those jobs, drop by our career center at 683 S.

Associated PressIts not just national monuments like Mount Rushmore than could benefit from a good power wash every now and then. Is there grime on your siding that good old-fashioned elbow grease wont take away? Stains on your concrete driveway? Is the deck looking dirty? Power washing or pressure washing the terms are used almost interchangeably might be an option. People find it so powerful, said Ken Collier, editorin-chief of The Family Handyman magazine. Its so fast and its so liberating. You can hire a pressurewashing company, or do it yourself. Machines come in electric and gas models, and can be rented or purchased. Are there risks? Too much pressure on vinyl siding or stucco can cause damage to the surface, said Doug Rucker, owner of Clean and Green Solutions in Kingwood, Texas, near Houston. The same thing with concrete cleaning. Similarly, excessive pressure on a deck can tear up the wood. When were cleaning wood decks, were using what we call low pressure, he said. When youre cleaning the exterior of the house, window and door seals need to be protected to prevent leaks. Windows could also break if you inadvertently hit them with the same pressure youre using for the rest of the house. And, theres always the risk of working on ladders with a machine that has recoil.

With 67 condo towers being built in South Florida, a pace not seen since the housing crash of 2007, such a payday seems more than possible to Grandys students, despite competition so intense that many of them will leave their new career without completing a single sale. If you are aggressive, you can do extremely well, he said during a break from his class at Gold Coast Schools of Real Estate in Doral, a Miami suburb. Low interest rates, foreign buyers and a gradual end to the foreclosure crisis are driving the modest turnaround in the nations housing market, but there might be no better evidence of it than the number of people hoping to become brokers. In Florida, where housing prices dropped by about half when the recession hit, the number of applications for real estate licenses has almost doubled from 23,863 in 2010 to 40,901 last year. In California too, the number of people taking the license exams has doubled since 2012, respectively. Even Nevada, another hard-hit state, saw a 23 percent bump in prospective licensees last year. The National Association of Realtors, which has more than a million brokers, salespeople, appraisers and other real estate professionals among its members, added 42,000 agents to its ranks in 2013, the first increase in seven years. The workforce in this field tends to expand and contract violently, mirroring the booms and busts that shock the housing market and the economy as a whole. Gold Coast Schools of Real Estate, which has five South Florida campuses, saw its enrollment fall 70 percent during the housing collapse, director John Greer said. But enrollment was up 20 percent last year, driven by students dazzled by the chance at fat commissions like the kind attached to every deal on TVs Million Dollar Listing. The income is going to be great and Im going to have my own schedule, said Katherine Sanchez, a 34-year-old nutritionist and a student in Grandys class. One reason many turn to real estate is that its not a difficult field to enter: while each state has different requirements, it generally takes little time and money to get a license. On average, Gold Coast students spend two months preparing for the Florida sales associate exam and spend less than $1,000 in tuition and licensing fees. It can be done even faster. Students in Grandys crash course cram 575 pages in one week before taking the state exam, which tests their knowledge of real estate law, practice and procedures, and math. Florida says 51 percent of students pass on their first try. But selling real estate is a difficult job with long hours. Studies show that most new agents quit with no or few sales. The Realtors association said the median gross annual income of its broker and sales agent members nationally was $47,700 in 2013, up from $43,500 in 2012. Jovita Martnez, 36, who got her license a year ago, says she earned about $20,000 working full time, often seven days a week. She turned to real estate when she found herself unemployed after she married a U.S. citizen and moved from Spain to Miami. Soon after getting her license, she realized the business is not as easy as she expected. It is hard because I am not from Miami and do not know anybody out of the circle of my husband, she said. Still, Martnez says her clientele is growing and she enjoys her new job. A social worker in Spain, she likes being self-employed. Either you sell or you dont make money. As simple as that, she said.

Associated PressStart with amenities like a monster TV or fire pit, add a never-ending supply of munchies and a relaxed attitude toward your kids bringing home a friend or five and you may just find that your place has become THE place where the tweens and teens want to be. A hangout house is often the first spot kids think to gather to work on a school project or binge on the latest Xbox game or silly YouTube videos. There are some houses that are sort of like magnetic, says Dana Points, editor-in-chief of Parents magazine. A hangout house is well-stocked, welcoming, casually decorated and not too fussy, and where theres an adult present, but on the periphery. Sure, with more kids around you can count on some extra cleanup or home repairs, a louder-than-usual roar, and the expense of keeping kids in chips, cookies and (maybe even) baby carrots. But parents who open their doors to the masses say the upsides are being able to keep tabs on their kids, getting to know their friends well and gaining a peek into their tender worlds. I have girls, so its very important to have them here, said Tammy Smith, 48. I felt safer with them being here. The best way to keep your kids and their friends where you can see them is to own a pool and a pool house. Seven years ago, she and Plants have been given individual species names, similar to human first names. Species do not normally interbreed with another species. Plants with very similar characteristics are grouped into a genus sort of like a human family. There may be many different species within a genus. Several genera with related features are classified into families. For example, the pretty native garden perennial purple coneflower is in the aster family, Asteracea, genus Echinacea, and specifically the species purpurea (always lowercase). Another plant commonly called coneflower could be the native annual wildflower Rudbeckia hirta, or the perennial R. fulgida. Both are also called black-eyed Susan. Common names can be confusing: scientific names accurately identify one specific species of plant or animal. Most gardeners call plants by a common name their grandparents used that they learned as a child. People of similar age and background would understand which plant was meant. Modern DNA proves the exact identification of every plant and animal now known to man. In the past few decades, common names have been dropped in favor of more accurate scientific ones. Some species have been reclassified into different genera and even different families after DNA proved an error had been made in classification. Younger people learn more accurate information about taxonomy than older generations had access to. Chinaberry also goes by the common names Persian lilac, bead tree, rosary tree and white cedar. It originated in Asia from Iraq to Japan and spread south to Australia before humans. There is no other plant like it, so it has a genus all to itself, Melia. Melia is a Greek word for ash, the Fraxinus genus with similar pinnate or doubly pinnate leaves. Melia azedarach, called Chinaberry locally, develops thousands of waxylooking, round fruits in June and July. Up to an inch diameter, they look as though made of china. The seeds inside each have a hole through the middle, convenient for stringing into bead necklaces, religious prayer beads and rosaries. Every mature seed is viable and will sprout a new tree if it lays on the ground. Huge numbers of large sprays of spring flowers, small and delicately scented, perfume the air like lilac in May. The fragrant white wood is brittle. It can be cut, dried and used like cedar for furniture, but is not hard or long-lasting. The dark green leaves are compound, with pairs of opposite leaflets along the leaf center stem. Melia grows very quickly, reaching about 30 feet tall with a 6to 8-inch diameter trunk within 10 years. It starts to flower only a few years after sprouting. Melia has been listed as a Category 1 invasive species since the FLEPPC (the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council, pronounced Flep-cee) first began in the 1990s. Although formerly used as a fastgrowing shade tree and widely installed for street planting, Melia is continually being removed with taxpayer dollars by municipal, county, state and federal crews. It costs millions of dollars every year just to try to keep up with this aggressive exotic pest plant. Every homeowner needs to be on the lookout for Melia. Recently, volunteer Friends of Dunnellon Public began the ongoing removal of Melia seeds and seedlings on the 11acre library property. A chainsaw makes quick work to lop off sapling Melia trees. To discourage sprouting, stumps should be painted with a 4 percent solution of the non-restricted herbicide Triclopir, available at Tractor Supply Co. but not at many other retail outlets. Always read and follow the label directions. By common name or scientific name, Melia is actively spreading on its own. This alien invasive is disrupting natural plant communities by displacing native species and the wild life that depend on them for existence. Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant. Semi-retired, she grows thousands of native plants. Visitors are welcome to her Dunnellon, Marion County, garden. For an appointment, call 352-249-6899 or contact JWeber12385@gmail.com.

Workers were in the midst of a five-week-long project to clean dirt and lichen from the presidential faces. something where ladder safety is very important, Collier said. Homeowners also need to be aware of overhead power lines. Still, many people decide to do the work themselves. Home supply stores offer an array of pressure washers; prices range from about $100 to more than $1,000. Collier said most of the skill in using a power washer lies in applying the right pressure and tip. Its like anything else you have to learn how the tool operates, he said. Gas pressure washers tend to be more powerful, noisier, heavier and more expensive than electric ones. Manuals that come with the units should explain what types of job theyre good for. If you decide to rent a powerwashing machine, Collier advised, Have a job in mind, ask what tip you need and if theres an additive that will help with the cleaning. And dont forget the prep work. The finished product is only going to be as good as the preparation you did, said John Nearon of Exterior Wood Restoration in Cicero, Indiana. People unaccustomed to such work might be advised not to try it themselves, Collier cautioned. Lots of people do it themselves, but its also something that for most people it would be a hire and done, he said. Hiring a contractor to power wash a home could cost 12 cents to up to 20 cents per square foot, depending on the location and surface, according to Rucker, who also provides training for power washers. Before hiring, ask questions:Insurance. Is the contractor insured to cover any damage or injury that might occur when cleaning? Dont be afraid to ask for a copy of their insurance certificate binder, Rucker said.Training. Do workers get continuing education to keep their training up to date?The process. Talk to them about how theyre going to clean it, what kind of process theyre going to use, down to the products theyre using, he said. In the Southeast, for example, he said bleach is used to kill mold and mildew and keep it away longer.Safeguarding landscape. What will they do to protect trees, shrubs or other plants around the house or property being cleaned? Rucker said that wetting down plants and keeping them watered is important. If you cover them, he said, do it only for minutes at a time. Power washing isnt just for big projects; it also can be used for things like patio furniture and cars. Collier likens the experience of using a power washer for the first time to switching from a hand lawnmower to a gas, self-propelled one. Its kind of a momentous thing, he said. You cant say the same thing about most tools. WASHINGContinued from Page E3 Hangout house: Why some homes become teen central See HANGOUT / Page E7

Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday the nationwide average for a 30-year loan inched up to 4.14 percent from 4.12 percent last week. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, rose to 3.27 percent from 3.23 percent last week. Mortgage rates are below the levels of a year ago. They have fallen in recent weeks after climbing last summer when the Federal Reserve began talking about reducing the monthly bond purchases it was making to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The Fed issued a statement last week suggesting that it wants to see further improvement in the economy before it starts raising its key short-term interest rate. The central bank offered no clearer hint of when it will raise that rate, which is at a record low near zero. At 4.14 percent, the rate on a 30-year mortgage is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Fed has been trimming its monthly bond purchases. The purchases are set to end in October. Home prices rose in June by the smallest year-over-year amount in 20 months, data released Tuesday showed, slowed by modest sales and more properties coming on the market. Data provider CoreLogic said prices rose 7.5 percent in June compared with 12 months earlier. Thats a solid gain but less than the 8.3 percent year-over-year increase in May and a recent year-to-year peak of 11.9 percent in February. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was 0.7 point, up from 0.6 point last week. The fee for a 15-year mortgage declined to 0.6 point from 0.7 point last week. At any price, costume jewelry not a bad buy Dear John: I have the pieces in the enclosed photo. They are obviously costume jewelry and have no marks on them. Each piece is 1 1/2 inches across at the widest and about the same high. They have a clip to attach them. I picked them up at a thrift store a couple of years back, just because I liked them. I paid $5 and still like them, though I have never used them. Can you tell me anything about them? L.R., Internet Dear L.R.: Yes, the pair is costume jewelry, which is a large category of collector interest. Readers should be aware that some costume jewelry can be quite valuable. The two Art Deco chevrons were likely made in the United States between World War I and II. I think they are lapel points. Perhaps someone will be able to identify them, for sure. Since they are generic and not marked, potential dollar value is nominal. Your $5 was well spent, just to add the look of emeralds and diamonds. Dear John: I have attached photos of two ashtrays I bought at a Chinese auction. Are these of any value, because they seem to be old and in great shape. The green one does have a marking of AB 75 and the other with the too cute little man on it has no markings under it. I am thinking these may have been made by someone in a ceramic class back in the day, due to the colors and the style they do seem to be old fashioned. With the 75 marking, I think maybe from 1975. Is there a market for this type of things? I am having a yard sale and thinking of selling them. B.S., Pine Ridge Dear B.S.: Smoking memorabilia is a large category of collecting. I think the one with the little boy sitting on the edge was made in Japan. The other ashtray was possibly made in Germany. Both are low on the totem pole of collector interest. Potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can. Dear John: We acquired this doll in a storage shed. I have been told it is a1890s doll and worth a lot of money. Please tell us your opinion. S.S., Internet Dear S.S.: I do not recognize your doll. Since you have been told John SikorskiSIKORSKIS ATTIC Inside...

Costume jewelry is a category with a lot of interest among collectors. A tapered table lamp like the Melrose from Crate & Barrel provides midcentury flair. (www.crateand barrel.com) Conical, brushedaluminum sconces and pendants have space-age style. And for a luxe look, think about acrylic and crystal lamps. (www.rejuvenation.com) Chandeliers get freshly interpreted at Restoration Hardware. A rustic iron Foucaults orb encircles an ornate crystal fixture; tiny ball chains veil the crystals like the fringe on a flappers dress. (www.restorationhardware.com)COLOR CORNERPlay with color, Kushnick urges. There are some gorgeous grays and subtle greens out this fall, and 2014s radiant orchid and coral add a lush pop almost anywhere, she says. You can make a big splash just by updating a wall color or bringing in a few vibrant accent pieces. Youll also see carrot, purple, lemongrass, ocher, clove, molasses and olive in throw pillows, bedding and upholstery. Homegoods has a butterscotch leather ottoman, a pretty pink side chair, and a peagreen accent table in its fall collections. (www.homegoods.com)PATTERN PLAYOmbre, tile, ziggurat, cinquefoil and filigree patterns grace lampshades, rugs and drapery. Nave woodland motifs and s-era kitchen prints dress wall art and napery. The newest geometrics and traditional prints are overscale. Responding to the midcentury trend, Ethan Allen has released a collection of Modern Art Master lithographs, including ones by Chagall, Miro, Matisse and Calder. (www.ethanallen.com) Kushnick is enjoying wallpapers comeback. The new temporary wallpapers are a great option for apartment dwellers, she says. Chasing Papers has hip versions of geometrics, animal prints and florals. (www.chasingpapers.com) And big, bold geometrics highlight Tampabased designer Given Campbells Andover collection. (www.given campbell.com)STYLE SIGNPOSTSAfter a few seasons in a supporting role, midcentury modern takes the lead this fall and winter. Accent chairs are armless or lower-profile, and furniture has either a California-chic or Danish-modern vibe. New York furniture studio Miles & May has a collection of dressers and cabinets at West Elm in walnut veneer, and that finish is also on the Grasshopper office desk. (www.west elm.com) Upholstered furniture gets its shirt tucked in. No more slouchy, sloppy slipcovers the newest pieces tend toward trim and tight, but in comfier, softer fabrics. Were seeing a lot of side and coffee tables with metal legs. West Elms Waldorf coffee table is a slim rosewood slab perched on skinny brass legs. Cyan Designs Portman end tables are lacy, laser-cut iron drums. Youll see faceted pieces across the accessory spectrum, in mirrors, containers and trays. Pop culture from the s and s shows up in vibrant retro-print pillows, furniture and accents. Check out Jonathan Adlers sherbet-hued Brigitte chair and Holli Zollingers upbeat woven rugs for Deny Designs. (www.jonathanadler.com and www.denydesigns.com) Global tribal motifs maintain a powerful presence, with India, the Americas and Africa strongly represented. World Markets got a collection of well-priced round, carved tribal tables. (www.worldmarket.com) In bedding, drapery, rug and upholstery fabrics, look for more new woodblock, paisley and medallion prints. Ikat, kantha print and medallions grace textile collections at Pottery Barn, and there are Mexican tile print ceramics there too. (www. potterybarn.com) Accessories like carved animals, woven art, sculpted paper and ceramic vases, and ironwork and glass items draw from distant cultures. Vintage-style globes, steamer trunks, map art and travel advertising continue to interest home decorators. Theres herringbone, tweed, plaid, Fair Isle knit patterns and lots of new takes on faux fur Nordic and Danish designs in textiles as well as kitchen and dining items. The rustic romantic look also has staying power, with outdoorsy pursuits informing everything from art to dishware. Native American motifs have graphic style; DGoods crafts a trio of wood nesting tables with a design reminiscent of a Navajo blanket.

stag is silkscreened onto hemp and backed in velvet to make a pillow at Pendleton-USA.com. The retailer also has some porcelain mugs and dessert plates in a jaunty tartan. Materials associated with Scottish style have patina and a sense of age about them. Think heritage woods mahogany, chestnut and oak. Warm bronze and pewter. Candlesticks and vases with Celtic designs. (www.scotweb.co.uk ) Leather and faux leather accessories are a good way to introduce a bit of the Scottish manor look without investing in a large piece of furniture. Check Homegoods for small storage boxes and trunks clad in faux leather, or spend a brisk fall Sunday prowling a good antiques market for items with provenance. Pat Renson is an interior designer based in Auchterarder, near Scotlands famed Gleneagles golf course. She puts tartan and plaid on modern sofas and chairs.

Phil Phillips 352-302-3146 Associated PressA stone fireplace with masonry fireplace insert by Isokern in the sitting area of the Smith hangout house by the pool is pictured in Trussville, Ala. Two years ago, Tammy Smith and her husband added a $115,000 open-air pool house, decked out with fireplace, large TV, refrigerator, two grills and couches to make the pool area attractive year round. Their daughters hung out there with friends, watching TV and making smores. her husband built an 8,000-squarefoot home on nearly 13 acres in Trussville, Alabama, so they would have room for a heated pool and hot tub. After Friday night high school football games, her daughters would often pile in with eight or nine girls (plus boys who were eventually sent home) for a swim or sleepover. Besides swimming, the kids could play ping pong, pool or video games. Two years ago, the Smiths added a $115,000 open-air pool house, decked out with fireplace, large TV, refrigerator, two grills and couches, to make the pool area attractive year-round. Its nice to know theyre safe because theyre outside with music on, plenty of food and drink versus a movie theater parking lot, Smith said, adding that now, at ages 19 and 24, her daughters still regularly invite friends over. Another hangout-house parent, Jeff Kasky, says its not necessarily whats in his five-bedroom home that makes it a draw; its his relaxed yet not overly permissive approach. A father of boys ages 12, 13 and 16, Kasky resides on a kid-filled cul-desac in a gated community in Delray Beach, Florida, with his fiancee, who has a 7-year-old daughter. The four kids enjoy having friends over, especially the two older boys. Kids play on gaming systems or watch football on the 120-inch, highdefinition TV with surround sound, enjoy the fire pit, practice musical instruments and just lie all over the place on couches and recliners. They know when they come over to our house, theres no pretense, Kasky says. They can just have a good time. Its good, clean fun. Since Kasky is, in his own words, a fairly immature 46-year-old, he gives his kids leeway to get a little rowdy as long as the antics stay positive. Im not going to tell them to keep their voice down for no reason, he said. Supervision is crucial during the teen years, when kids may try to sneak sips of a Bud when the lights are low during a movie. Parents can subtly remind kids of their presence by throwing in a load of laundry or offering snacks. There are parents who, in order to be the cool house, have had to relax that rule and say as long as you are in the house you can have a drink, Kasky said. Thats not acceptable to me for teenagers. Samantha Leggat describes her home in Livermore, California, as a playground, with lots of activities for kids, like skateboarding or playing Xbox or Wii. Sometimes, when its just her boys, ages 12 and 14, they cant figure out what to do until a friend comes over. Thats how Leggat prefers it, so she knows theyre not making bad choices or in an unsupervised home.

DECORContinued from Page E9 Wayfairs Borghese table lamp, with a retro yet graphic vibe that fits the style brief for fall 2014.Associated Press Associated PressAre you a fan of midcentury modern? Drawn to classic elegance? Does the handcraft of global dcor grab you? There was an era when experts said to pick just one, but now we can mix and match or go all in. Each season brings updated versions of successful pieces, plus an interesting array of new looks. This falls no exception. Keep an eye out for versatile accent pieces, the kind that can work in a myriad of places, and consider material and color combinations, says Beth Kushnick, set decorator for CBS The Good Wife. These are some of the easiest ways to refresh any space, and theres a ton of stylish options out right now at a range of price points. After her sophisticated sets drew an online following, Kushnick has created her own furnishings line, which debuts this fall. She says fall 2014 is about finding pieces that provide maximum impact without a lot of effort. Some themes this season:TOUCH OF FALLLook for texture-rich accessories like a box with stone inlay or a wooden sculpture that add an element of nature to your space. Mix in a variety of metals to add a sense of luxury, Kushnick advises. Says Los Angeles-based designer Trip Haenisch: Im seeing a lot of fabrics with luxe textures this season. Linen velvets and woven fabrics are really in. You can quickly and inexpensively incorporate texture into your space through the use of pillows and throws. (www.triphaenisch.com) At fall previews, retailers were showing soft throws shot through with metallic threads or embroidered with subtle sequins. Rose gold is the ingnue on the metallics stage; its soft, pink-tinged finish looks new, and youll see it on tabletop accessories, lamps, even silverware. Warm brass continues to play a big role, trimming tables, embedded in wooden trays, formed into curvy or linear vases and lamps. It picks up the midcentury vibe but suits traditional spaces, too. Chrome and acrylic hit contemporary high notes. On ceramics, youll find reactive and dip glazes, and more matte finishes than ever before. Mercury glass, a dcor darling for the past few seasons, gets a few tweaks with etched patterns and added color.LIGHT IT UPHigh-end lighting design has found its way into the mid-range market, which means pricier styles at mass-market retailers. Look for shades with crisp geometrics, nubby textures and crewelwork patterns to update lamps for not much money. (www.target.com) Pierced metal is showing up in many accents, including lighting. Milky glass pendants look countrymodern. Youll also find matte-finish shades with foil interiors that catch light dramatically; Ikea has table and floor lamps with coppery lining. (www.ikea.com) This photo provided by HomeGoods .com shows an accent table with a Scandinavian cottage vibe, in a rich green that provides a pop of color and some handy storage in a variety of room settings.

Graham & Browns version comes in several different colors.Associated Press Associated PressWhere fashion goes, decor follows. And this fall, the fashionistas are inspired by Scotland. Plaid capes, kilts and coats hit the fall 2014 catwalk for Saint Laurent and Stella McCartney. Marchesa showed tartan-printed lace, argyle and fur, and deconstructed kilt patterns into a dress collection. Brazilian label Animale used Celtic and druid patterns, and shot their ad campaign against a rocky, Braveheart-esque background. Maybe its Scotlands referendum on independence thats drawn designers attention. If youre ready to add a little Highland fling to your living space this season, there are lots of options. Rich woods, squooshy sofas, rubbed bronze and landscape prints evoke the Caledonian country manor. The look, traditional and tasteful, can be dressed up or down. And modern interpretations also abound, with oversize or edited classic patterns, layering of aged items with new, and playful versions of iconic Scottish elements. Scottish style is rich with clan tartans and evocative motifs drawn from a long and tempestuous history. The color palettes equally rich: deep lichen greens, rainy grays, cranberry, moat blue, malt and butterscotch. In paints, check out Devine Colors Oat, Thunder and Juniper; Sherwin Williams Loch Blue and Salute; Farrow & Balls Pigeon. (www.devine color.com; www.sherwinwilliams.com; and http://us. farrow-ball.com ) Look for archetypal patterns like herringbone, plaid, tweed, lace and argyle.

Graham & Browns version comes in several different colors.Associated Press Associated PressWhere fashion goes, decor follows. And this fall, the fashionistas are inspired by Scotland. Plaid capes, kilts and coats hit the fall 2014 catwalk for Saint Laurent and Stella McCartney. Marchesa showed tartan-printed lace, argyle and fur, and deconstructed kilt patterns into a dress collection. Brazilian label Animale used Celtic and druid patterns, and shot their ad campaign against a rocky, Braveheart-esque background. Maybe its Scotlands referendum on independence thats drawn designers attention. If youre ready to add a little Highland fling to your living space this season, there are lots of options. Rich woods, squooshy sofas, rubbed bronze and landscape prints evoke the Caledonian country manor. The look, traditional and tasteful, can be dressed up or down. And modern interpretations also abound, with oversize or edited classic patterns, layering of aged items with new, and playful versions of iconic Scottish elements. Scottish style is rich with clan tartans and evocative motifs drawn from a long and tempestuous history. The color palettes equally rich: deep lichen greens, rainy grays, cranberry, moat blue, malt and butterscotch. In paints, check out Devine Colors Oat, Thunder and Juniper; Sherwin Williams Loch Blue and Salute; Farrow & Balls Pigeon. (www.devine color.com; www.sherwinwilliams.com; and http://us. farrow-ball.com ) Look for archetypal patterns like herringbone, plaid, tweed, lace and argyle. Pottery Barns Alana lace printed bedding; Targets Threshold Paisley print lampshade; Missonis tweed pouf; and Graham & Browns argyle wallpapers are at AllModern.

Materials associated with Scottish style have patina and a sense of age about them. Think heritage woods mahogany, chestnut and oak. Warm bronze and pewter. Candlesticks and vases with Celtic designs. (www.scotweb.co.uk ) Leather and faux leather accessories are a good way to introduce a bit of the Scottish manor look without investing in a large piece of furniture. Check Homegoods for small storage boxes and trunks clad in faux leather, or spend a brisk fall Sunday prowling a good antiques market for items with provenance.

Phil Phillips 352-302-3146 Associated PressA stone fireplace with masonry fireplace insert by Isokern in the sitting area of the Smith hangout house by the pool is pictured in Trussville, Ala. Two years ago, Tammy Smith and her husband added a $115,000 open-air pool house, decked out with fireplace, large TV, refrigerator, two grills and couches to make the pool area attractive year round. Their daughters hung out there with friends, watching TV and making smores. her husband built an 8,000-squarefoot home on nearly 13 acres in Trussville, Alabama, so they would have room for a heated pool and hot tub. After Friday night high school football games, her daughters would often pile in with eight or nine girls (plus boys who were eventually sent home) for a swim or sleepover. Besides swimming, the kids could play ping pong, pool or video games. Two years ago, the Smiths added a $115,000 open-air pool house, decked out with fireplace, large TV, refrigerator, two grills and couches, to make the pool area attractive year-round. Its nice to know theyre safe because theyre outside with music on, plenty of food and drink versus a movie theater parking lot, Smith said, adding that now, at ages 19 and 24, her daughters still regularly invite friends over. Another hangout-house parent, Jeff Kasky, says its not necessarily whats in his five-bedroom home that makes it a draw; its his relaxed yet not overly permissive approach. A father of boys ages 12, 13 and 16, Kasky resides on a kid-filled cul-desac in a gated community in Delray Beach, Florida, with his fiancee, who has a 7-year-old daughter. The four kids enjoy having friends over, especially the two older boys. Kids play on gaming systems or watch football on the 120-inch, highdefinition TV with surround sound, enjoy the fire pit, practice musical instruments and just lie all over the place on couches and recliners. They know when they come over to our house, theres no pretense, Kasky says. They can just have a good time. Its good, clean fun. Since Kasky is, in his own words, a fairly immature 46-year-old, he gives his kids leeway to get a little rowdy as long as the antics stay positive. Im not going to tell them to keep their voice down for no reason, he said. Supervision is crucial during the teen years, when kids may try to sneak sips of a Bud when the lights are low during a movie. Parents can subtly remind kids of their presence by throwing in a load of laundry or offering snacks. There are parents who, in order to be the cool house, have had to relax that rule and say as long as you are in the house you can have a drink, Kasky said. Thats not acceptable to me for teenagers. Samantha Leggat describes her home in Livermore, California, as a playground, with lots of activities for kids, like skateboarding or playing Xbox or Wii. Sometimes, when its just her boys, ages 12 and 14, they cant figure out what to do until a friend comes over. Thats how Leggat prefers it, so she knows theyre not making bad choices or in an unsupervised home.

DECORContinued from Page E9 Wayfairs Borghese table lamp, with a retro yet graphic vibe that fits the style brief for fall 2014.Associated Press Associated PressAre you a fan of midcentury modern? Drawn to classic elegance? Does the handcraft of global dcor grab you? There was an era when experts said to pick just one, but now we can mix and match or go all in. Each season brings updated versions of successful pieces, plus an interesting array of new looks. This falls no exception. Keep an eye out for versatile accent pieces, the kind that can work in a myriad of places, and consider material and color combinations, says Beth Kushnick, set decorator for CBS The Good Wife. These are some of the easiest ways to refresh any space, and theres a ton of stylish options out right now at a range of price points. After her sophisticated sets drew an online following, Kushnick has created her own furnishings line, which debuts this fall. She says fall 2014 is about finding pieces that provide maximum impact without a lot of effort. Some themes this season:TOUCH OF FALLLook for texture-rich accessories like a box with stone inlay or a wooden sculpture that add an element of nature to your space. Mix in a variety of metals to add a sense of luxury, Kushnick advises. Says Los Angeles-based designer Trip Haenisch: Im seeing a lot of fabrics with luxe textures this season. Linen velvets and woven fabrics are really in. You can quickly and inexpensively incorporate texture into your space through the use of pillows and throws. (www.triphaenisch.com) At fall previews, retailers were showing soft throws shot through with metallic threads or embroidered with subtle sequins. Rose gold is the ingnue on the metallics stage; its soft, pink-tinged finish looks new, and youll see it on tabletop accessories, lamps, even silverware. Warm brass continues to play a big role, trimming tables, embedded in wooden trays, formed into curvy or linear vases and lamps. It picks up the midcentury vibe but suits traditional spaces, too. Chrome and acrylic hit contemporary high notes. On ceramics, youll find reactive and dip glazes, and more matte finishes than ever before. Mercury glass, a dcor darling for the past few seasons, gets a few tweaks with etched patterns and added color.LIGHT IT UPHigh-end lighting design has found its way into the mid-range market, which means pricier styles at mass-market retailers. Look for shades with crisp geometrics, nubby textures and crewelwork patterns to update lamps for not much money. (www.target.com) Pierced metal is showing up in many accents, including lighting. Milky glass pendants look countrymodern. Youll also find matte-finish shades with foil interiors that catch light dramatically; Ikea has table and floor lamps with coppery lining.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday the nationwide average for a 30-year loan inched up to 4.14 percent from 4.12 percent last week. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, rose to 3.27 percent from 3.23 percent last week. Mortgage rates are below the levels of a year ago. They have fallen in recent weeks after climbing last summer when the Federal Reserve began talking about reducing the monthly bond purchases it was making to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The Fed issued a statement last week suggesting that it wants to see further improvement in the economy before it starts raising its key short-term interest rate. The central bank offered no clearer hint of when it will raise that rate, which is at a record low near zero. At 4.14 percent, the rate on a 30-year mortgage is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Fed has been trimming its monthly bond purchases. The purchases are set to end in October. Home prices rose in June by the smallest year-over-year amount in 20 months, data released Tuesday showed, slowed by modest sales and more properties coming on the market. Data provider CoreLogic said prices rose 7.5 percent in June compared with 12 months earlier. Thats a solid gain but less than the 8.3 percent year-over-year increase in May and a recent year-to-year peak of 11.9 percent in February. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was 0.7 point, up from 0.6 point last week. The fee for a 15-year mortgage declined to 0.6 point from 0.7 point last week. At any price, costume jewelry not a bad buy Dear John: I have the pieces in the enclosed photo. They are obviously costume jewelry and have no marks on them. Each piece is 1 1/2 inches across at the widest and about the same high. They have a clip to attach them. I picked them up at a thrift store a couple of years back, just because I liked them. I paid $5 and still like them, though I have never used them. Can you tell me anything about them? L.R., Internet Dear L.R.: Yes, the pair is costume jewelry, which is a large category of collector interest. Readers should be aware that some costume jewelry can be quite valuable. The two Art Deco chevrons were likely made in the United States between World War I and II. I think they are lapel points. Perhaps someone will be able to identify them, for sure. Since they are generic and not marked, potential dollar value is nominal. Your $5 was well spent, just to add the look of emeralds and diamonds. Dear John: I have attached photos of two ashtrays I bought at a Chinese auction. Are these of any value, because they seem to be old and in great shape. The green one does have a marking of AB 75 and the other with the too cute little man on it has no markings under it. I am thinking these may have been made by someone in a ceramic class back in the day, due to the colors and the style they do seem to be old fashioned. With the 75 marking, I think maybe from 1975. Is there a market for this type of things? I am having a yard sale and thinking of selling them. B.S., Pine Ridge Dear B.S.: Smoking memorabilia is a large category of collecting. I think the one with the little boy sitting on the edge was made in Japan. The other ashtray was possibly made in Germany. Both are low on the totem pole of collector interest. Potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can. Dear John: We acquired this doll in a storage shed. I have been told it is a1890s doll and worth a lot of money. Please tell us your opinion. S.S., Internet Dear S.S.: I do not recognize your doll. Since you have been told John SikorskiSIKORSKIS ATTIC Inside...

You can make a big splash just by updating a wall color or bringing in a few vibrant accent pieces. Youll also see carrot, purple, lemongrass, ocher, clove, molasses and olive in throw pillows, bedding and upholstery. Homegoods has a butterscotch leather ottoman, a pretty pink side chair, and a peagreen accent table in its fall collections. (www.homegoods.com)PATTERN PLAYOmbre, tile, ziggurat, cinquefoil and filigree patterns grace lampshades, rugs and drapery. Nave woodland motifs and s-era kitchen prints dress wall art and napery. The newest geometrics and traditional prints are overscale. Responding to the midcentury trend, Ethan Allen has released a collection of Modern Art Master lithographs, including ones by Chagall, Miro, Matisse and Calder. (www.ethanallen.com) Kushnick is enjoying wallpapers comeback. The new temporary wallpapers are a great option for apartment dwellers, she says. Chasing Papers has hip versions of geometrics, animal prints and florals. (www.chasingpapers.com) And big, bold geometrics highlight Tampabased designer Given Campbells Andover collection. (www.given campbell.com)STYLE SIGNPOSTSAfter a few seasons in a supporting role, midcentury modern takes the lead this fall and winter. Accent chairs are armless or lower-profile, and furniture has either a California-chic or Danish-modern vibe. New York furniture studio Miles & May has a collection of dressers and cabinets at West Elm in walnut veneer, and that finish is also on the Grasshopper office desk. (www.west elm.com) Upholstered furniture gets its shirt tucked in. No more slouchy, sloppy slipcovers the newest pieces tend toward trim and tight, but in comfier, softer fabrics. Were seeing a lot of side and coffee tables with metal legs. West Elms Waldorf coffee table is a slim rosewood slab perched on skinny brass legs. Cyan Designs Portman end tables are lacy, laser-cut iron drums. Youll see faceted pieces across the accessory spectrum, in mirrors, containers and trays. Pop culture from the s and s shows up in vibrant retro-print pillows, furniture and accents. Check out Jonathan Adlers sherbet-hued Brigitte chair and Holli Zollingers upbeat woven rugs for Deny Designs. (www.jonathanadler.com and www.denydesigns.com) Global tribal motifs maintain a powerful presence, with India, the Americas and Africa strongly represented. World Markets got a collection of well-priced round, carved tribal tables. (www.worldmarket.com) In bedding, drapery, rug and upholstery fabrics, look for more new woodblock, paisley and medallion prints. Ikat, kantha print and medallions grace textile collections at Pottery Barn, and there are Mexican tile print ceramics there too. (www. potterybarn.com) Accessories like carved animals, woven art, sculpted paper and ceramic vases, and ironwork and glass items draw from distant cultures. Vintage-style globes, steamer trunks, map art and travel advertising continue to interest home decorators. Theres herringbone, tweed, plaid, Fair Isle knit patterns and lots of new takes on faux fur Nordic and Danish designs in textiles as well as kitchen and dining items. The rustic romantic look also has staying power, with outdoorsy pursuits informing everything from art to dishware. Native American motifs have graphic style; DGoods crafts a trio of wood nesting tables with a design reminiscent of a Navajo blanket.

Associated PressStart with amenities like a monster TV or fire pit, add a never-ending supply of munchies and a relaxed attitude toward your kids bringing home a friend or five and you may just find that your place has become THE place where the tweens and teens want to be. A hangout house is often the first spot kids think to gather to work on a school project or binge on the latest Xbox game or silly YouTube videos. There are some houses that are sort of like magnetic, says Dana Points, editor-in-chief of Parents magazine. A hangout house is well-stocked, welcoming, casually decorated and not too fussy, and where theres an adult present, but on the periphery. Sure, with more kids around you can count on some extra cleanup or home repairs, a louder-than-usual roar, and the expense of keeping kids in chips, cookies and (maybe even) baby carrots. But parents who open their doors to the masses say the upsides are being able to keep tabs on their kids, getting to know their friends well and gaining a peek into their tender worlds. I have girls, so its very important to have them here, said Tammy Smith, 48. I felt safer with them being here. The best way to keep your kids and their friends where you can see them is to own a pool and a pool house. Seven years ago, she and Plants have been given individual species names, similar to human first names. Species do not normally interbreed with another species. Plants with very similar characteristics are grouped into a genus sort of like a human family. There may be many different species within a genus. Several genera with related features are classified into families. For example, the pretty native garden perennial purple coneflower is in the aster family, Asteracea, genus Echinacea, and specifically the species purpurea (always lowercase). Another plant commonly called coneflower could be the native annual wildflower Rudbeckia hirta, or the perennial R. fulgida. Both are also called black-eyed Susan. Common names can be confusing: scientific names accurately identify one specific species of plant or animal. Most gardeners call plants by a common name their grandparents used that they learned as a child. People of similar age and background would understand which plant was meant. Modern DNA proves the exact identification of every plant and animal now known to man. In the past few decades, common names have been dropped in favor of more accurate scientific ones. Some species have been reclassified into different genera and even different families after DNA proved an error had been made in classification. Younger people learn more accurate information about taxonomy than older generations had access to. Chinaberry also goes by the common names Persian lilac, bead tree, rosary tree and white cedar. It originated in Asia from Iraq to Japan and spread south to Australia before humans. There is no other plant like it, so it has a genus all to itself, Melia. Melia is a Greek word for ash, the Fraxinus genus with similar pinnate or doubly pinnate leaves. Melia azedarach, called Chinaberry locally, develops thousands of waxylooking, round fruits in June and July. Up to an inch diameter, they look as though made of china. The seeds inside each have a hole through the middle, convenient for stringing into bead necklaces, religious prayer beads and rosaries. Every mature seed is viable and will sprout a new tree if it lays on the ground. Huge numbers of large sprays of spring flowers, small and delicately scented, perfume the air like lilac in May. The fragrant white wood is brittle. It can be cut, dried and used like cedar for furniture, but is not hard or long-lasting. The dark green leaves are compound, with pairs of opposite leaflets along the leaf center stem. Melia grows very quickly, reaching about 30 feet tall with a 6to 8-inch diameter trunk within 10 years. It starts to flower only a few years after sprouting. Melia has been listed as a Category 1 invasive species since the FLEPPC (the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council, pronounced Flep-cee) first began in the 1990s. Although formerly used as a fastgrowing shade tree and widely installed for street planting, Melia is continually being removed with taxpayer dollars by municipal, county, state and federal crews. It costs millions of dollars every year just to try to keep up with this aggressive exotic pest plant. Every homeowner needs to be on the lookout for Melia. Recently, volunteer Friends of Dunnellon Public began the ongoing removal of Melia seeds and seedlings on the 11acre library property. A chainsaw makes quick work to lop off sapling Melia trees. To discourage sprouting, stumps should be painted with a 4 percent solution of the non-restricted herbicide Triclopir, available at Tractor Supply Co. but not at many other retail outlets. Always read and follow the label directions. By common name or scientific name, Melia is actively spreading on its own. This alien invasive is disrupting natural plant communities by displacing native species and the wild life that depend on them for existence. Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant. Semi-retired, she grows thousands of native plants. Visitors are welcome to her Dunnellon, Marion County, garden. For an appointment, call 352-249-6899 or contact JWeber12385@gmail.com.

Workers were in the midst of a five-week-long project to clean dirt and lichen from the presidential faces. something where ladder safety is very important, Collier said. Homeowners also need to be aware of overhead power lines. Still, many people decide to do the work themselves. Home supply stores offer an array of pressure washers; prices range from about $100 to more than $1,000. Collier said most of the skill in using a power washer lies in applying the right pressure and tip. Its like anything else you have to learn how the tool operates, he said. Gas pressure washers tend to be more powerful, noisier, heavier and more expensive than electric ones. Manuals that come with the units should explain what types of job theyre good for. If you decide to rent a powerwashing machine, Collier advised, Have a job in mind, ask what tip you need and if theres an additive that will help with the cleaning. And dont forget the prep work. The finished product is only going to be as good as the preparation you did, said John Nearon of Exterior Wood Restoration in Cicero, Indiana. People unaccustomed to such work might be advised not to try it themselves, Collier cautioned. Lots of people do it themselves, but its also something that for most people it would be a hire and done, he said. Hiring a contractor to power wash a home could cost 12 cents to up to 20 cents per square foot, depending on the location and surface, according to Rucker, who also provides training for power washers. Before hiring, ask questions:Insurance. Is the contractor insured to cover any damage or injury that might occur when cleaning? Dont be afraid to ask for a copy of their insurance certificate binder, Rucker said.Training. Do workers get continuing education to keep their training up to date?The process. Talk to them about how theyre going to clean it, what kind of process theyre going to use, down to the products theyre using, he said. In the Southeast, for example, he said bleach is used to kill mold and mildew and keep it away longer.Safeguarding landscape. What will they do to protect trees, shrubs or other plants around the house or property being cleaned? Rucker said that wetting down plants and keeping them watered is important. If you cover them, he said, do it only for minutes at a time. Power washing isnt just for big projects; it also can be used for things like patio furniture and cars. Collier likens the experience of using a power washer for the first time to switching from a hand lawnmower to a gas, self-propelled one. Its kind of a momentous thing, he said. You cant say the same thing about most tools. WASHINGContinued from Page E3 Hangout house: Why some homes become teen central See HANGOUT / Page E7

Associated PressIts not just national monuments like Mount Rushmore than could benefit from a good power wash every now and then. Is there grime on your siding that good old-fashioned elbow grease wont take away? Stains on your concrete driveway? Is the deck looking dirty? Power washing or pressure washing the terms are used almost interchangeably might be an option. People find it so powerful, said Ken Collier, editorin-chief of The Family Handyman magazine. Its so fast and its so liberating. You can hire a pressurewashing company, or do it yourself. Machines come in electric and gas models, and can be rented or purchased. Are there risks? Too much pressure on vinyl siding or stucco can cause damage to the surface, said Doug Rucker, owner of Clean and Green Solutions in Kingwood, Texas, near Houston. The same thing with concrete cleaning. Similarly, excessive pressure on a deck can tear up the wood. When were cleaning wood decks, were using what we call low pressure, he said. When youre cleaning the exterior of the house, window and door seals need to be protected to prevent leaks. Windows could also break if you inadvertently hit them with the same pressure youre using for the rest of the house. And, theres always the risk of working on ladders with a machine that has recoil.

With 67 condo towers being built in South Florida, a pace not seen since the housing crash of 2007, such a payday seems more than possible to Grandys students, despite competition so intense that many of them will leave their new career without completing a single sale. If you are aggressive, you can do extremely well, he said during a break from his class at Gold Coast Schools of Real Estate in Doral, a Miami suburb. Low interest rates, foreign buyers and a gradual end to the foreclosure crisis are driving the modest turnaround in the nations housing market, but there might be no better evidence of it than the number of people hoping to become brokers. In Florida, where housing prices dropped by about half when the recession hit, the number of applications for real estate licenses has almost doubled from 23,863 in 2010 to 40,901 last year. In California too, the number of people taking the license exams has doubled since 2012, respectively. Even Nevada, another hard-hit state, saw a 23 percent bump in prospective licensees last year. The National Association of Realtors, which has more than a million brokers, salespeople, appraisers and other real estate professionals among its members, added 42,000 agents to its ranks in 2013, the first increase in seven years. The workforce in this field tends to expand and contract violently, mirroring the booms and busts that shock the housing market and the economy as a whole. Gold Coast Schools of Real Estate, which has five South Florida campuses, saw its enrollment fall 70 percent during the housing collapse, director John Greer said. But enrollment was up 20 percent last year, driven by students dazzled by the chance at fat commissions like the kind attached to every deal on TVs Million Dollar Listing. The income is going to be great and Im going to have my own schedule, said Katherine Sanchez, a 34-year-old nutritionist and a student in Grandys class. One reason many turn to real estate is that its not a difficult field to enter: while each state has different requirements, it generally takes little time and money to get a license. On average, Gold Coast students spend two months preparing for the Florida sales associate exam and spend less than $1,000 in tuition and licensing fees. It can be done even faster. Students in Grandys crash course cram 575 pages in one week before taking the state exam, which tests their knowledge of real estate law, practice and procedures, and math. Florida says 51 percent of students pass on their first try. But selling real estate is a difficult job with long hours. Studies show that most new agents quit with no or few sales. The Realtors association said the median gross annual income of its broker and sales agent members nationally was $47,700 in 2013, up from $43,500 in 2012. Jovita Martnez, 36, who got her license a year ago, says she earned about $20,000 working full time, often seven days a week. She turned to real estate when she found herself unemployed after she married a U.S. citizen and moved from Spain to Miami. Soon after getting her license, she realized the business is not as easy as she expected. It is hard because I am not from Miami and do not know anybody out of the circle of my husband, she said. Still, Martnez says her clientele is growing and she enjoys her new job. A social worker in Spain, she likes being self-employed. Either you sell or you dont make money. As simple as that, she said.

G16Sunday, August 10, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE ELECTION2014 Citrus CountySunday, August 10, 2014 000IUOG inn Webb believes that strong leadership can make a difference in meeting the human needs of Citrus County residents, from jobs for the young working families, to protecting retirees on fixed incomes from runaway tax increases and bloated government. As your County Commissioner, Winn Webb will continue, as he has in the past, to consistently vote to reduce taxes and reduce government spending. From 2008 to 2012, Winns conservative leadership style was instrumental in reducing the county budget by approximately $48 million, with little or no loss of service. Winn Webb is the only candidate for District 4 County Commission with a proven record as a fiscal conservative. He is a proven leader who can hit the ground running from day one. With good leadership, Citrus Countys best days are ahead of us. W Top Priorities To keep taxes low and stable in order to protect the large population of senior citizens who are on fixed incomes and young working families who are struggling in the current uncertain economy. To improve on the attractiveness of Citrus County to new business and economic development. To bring and create new jobs to Citrus County. Provide stability and civility to the BOCC.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESunday, August 10, 2014 G15 ELECTION2014 G2Sunday, August 10, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE ELECTION2014 Fifth Judicial Circuit Court Judge Age: 59 Town: Belleview Party: Non partisan office Occupation: Incumbent circuit court judge Education: Bachelor of arts in Criminal Justice, University of Florida; juris doctorate, Stetson Law School. Civic Involvement: Inns of Court Issue No. 1: Experience Issue No. 2: Qualifications Age: 47 Town: Inverness Party: Non partisan office Occupation: Attorney Education: Bachelor of science and arts in Accounting from Troy State University; juris doctorate, University of Florida, College of Law Civic involvement: Rotary Club of Inverness; Boys & Girls Club. Issue No. 1: Judicial dockets in Florida have been increasing steadily over the last five years without a concurrent increase in court funding. Like the private sector, the courts have to learn to do more with less. Judges need to continue to find creative ways to serve those who find themselves in the court system without creating more costs and expenses for litigants. Issue No.2: All parties to court proceedings should be treated with dignity and respect. I believe there is currently a lack of dignity and respect shown in court proceedings. I will strive to instill a feeling and expectation of dignity and respect in the courtroom. Age: 47 Town: Ocala Party: Non partisan office Occupation: Attorney Education: Bachelor of science, University of Central Florida; Juris Doctorate, Oklahoma City University School of Law. Civic Involvement: Knights of Columbus; Shriners. Issue No. 1: The main issue is to provide the best judge for the citizens of this circuit. The fact that 12 judges were up for election this term and all got elected to office unopposed, except for this judge, speaks volumes as to this judicial seat. Bo will treat everyone with respect and uphold the rule of law. Issue No. 2: Fairness and courage to make the right decision. Age: 53 Town: Bushnell Party: Non partisan office Occupation: Attorney Education: Bachelor of arts, University of Tampa; juris doctorate, Stetson University College of Law. Civic Involvement: Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida Issue No. 1: Judicial candidates are unable to comment on any issues pursuant to Canon 7 of the Code of Judicial Conduct. Issue No. 2. See above. WHAT: Circuit Court Judge COVERS: All Citrus County, plus Hernando, Lake, Marion and Sumter counties TERM: 6 years PAY: $146,080 WHO: Mary Hatcher, incumbent Sandy Kautz, Denise Dymond Lyn and Bo Samargya ON THE BALLOT: Aug 26 open primary. Top two votegetters are in Nov. 4 General Election OR top primary winner is elected with at least 50 percent plus one of the voteGet out and vote on Aug. 26, 2014I would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to Get Out and Vote on Aug. 26, 2014! Elections are always important, exciting and have consequences. This year is no different. All voters will be able to vote in the race for County Commission District 4. The race is a universal primary contest because there is no general election opponents in that race. The winner will be decided in the primary election. Therefore, the republican race will be on the democratic and non-partisan ballots as well as the republican ballot giving all voters the opportunity to vote for the next County Commissioner in District 4. The non-partisan races for Circuit Judge, 5th Judicial Circuit and School Board Seats 1,3,4 and 5 are on all ballots and will potentially be decided in the primary election. In the non-partisan races, the winner must receive 50 percent plus one vote in order to win. This means that in the non-partisan races with more than two candidates, if the top vote getter does not receive 50 percent plus one vote, then the two candidates with the most votes will go to the general election where the race will be decided. This law governs nonpartisan races only. The republican primary ballot will have a race for Governor. The democratic ballot has races for the Governor and Attorney General. These are all important races for Citrus County voters to be participating in the process of elected officials on the State level. This election cycle we have an unprecedented number of absentee ballot requests. Nearly 20,000 voters have requested an absentee ballot! Laws changed and voters requesting an absentee ballot in 2012 have a request good for two election cycles unless they told us differently. Early Voting is available for nine days for the primary election and 10 days for the general election. With all these opportunities to cast your ballot, we still are amazed that the highest percentage of voters voting in the primary election in recent history is 30 percent! Lets hope this year is different.

Precinct 301 and 400 polling spots moveThe polling place for precinct 301 has moved. Precinct 301 formerly located at the National Guard Armory, 8551 West Venable St., has been relocated to St. Timothys Lutheran Church, 1070 North Suncoast Blvd., Crystal River.The First United Methodist Church (Precinct 400 ), 3896 South Pleasant Grove Road, Inverness has moved to the First Baptist Church of Inverness, 550 Pleasant Grove Road. Because of complications related to a lightning strike, First United Methodist is unavailable for voting this election cycle.Only voters who reside in Precincts 301 and 400 will be affected by this changeIf you need directions to the new polling place, please contact the elections office at 352-341-6740 or visit our website at www.votecitrus.com and click on Voter Information then select Precinct Finder. Polls are open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Election Day. The primary election is Aug. 26. The general election is Nov. 4. You may choose to vote-by-mail or at an early voting site. Please remember the law requires that you provide photo and signature ID (current Florida drivers license or Florida ID) when voting at the polls or early voting site. If you have any questions, please call the Supervisor of Elections Office. Voter registration at Crystal River MallThe League of Women Voters of Citrus County will register voters from noon to 3 p.m. the second and fourth Saturdays each month through September at the Crystal River Mall on U.S. 19.

District 4 is universal primaryIn the Aug. 26 primary election, there will be a universal primary election in the race for Citrus County Commission, District 4. Florida is a closed primary state. That means voters are limited to choosing candidates in their own party in the primary election. However, in the District 4 race between Scott Carnahan and Winn Webb, both are in the Republican Party. Therefore, the race becomes a universal primary and will be decided in the primary election. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the Supervisor of Elections Office at 352-341-6740.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESunday, August 10, 2014 G3 ELECTION2014 G14Sunday, August 10, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE ELECTION2014 Age: 65 Town: Homosassa Party: Non partisan office Occupation: School teacher, Citrus County School District. Education: Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education, Samford University, Birmingham, Ala.; masters in instruction and curriculum, Grand Canyon University, Phoenix, Ariz. Community involvement: Daughters of the American Revolution. Issue No. 1:.Expand relationships with parents, guardians, and community groups. If elected, I will place a strong focus on reaching out to parents, guardians, and community groups and organizations who are dedicated to providing resources to enhance the quality of education in Citrus County. Issue No, 2: I am committed to supporting a rigorous curriculum and providing teachers with the tools and resources that they need to meet the needs of all level learners. Age: 56 Town: Lecanto Party: Non partisan office Occupation: School board incumbent since June 2013. Education: Bachelors in Elementary Education, St. Leo University; masters in Educational Leadership, University of South Florida. Community involvement: College of Central Florida board trustee. Issue No. 1: We are losing instructional, leadership and support staff, with proven records of success who possess deep levels of intellectual capital, at an alarming rate. Our students are seeing more and more fulltime substitutes teaching in our classrooms. We must prioritize spending, evaluate needs and qualify our budgeting based on how the expenditures impact student achievement. Issue No. 2: Meeting the challenges of development, implementation, maintenance of technology and funding of infrastructure needed to administer assessments online and provide instructional materials in digital format, as well as the cost of providing lap tops for every student. Age: 70 Town: Inverness Party: Non partisan office Occupation: Incumbent school board member Education: Bachelor of arts in English, Jacksonville University; masters of arts, English Education, Florida State University; masters of science in Guidance and Counseling, Rollins College. Community involvement: Salvation Army; Family Resource Center. Issue 1: Striving for educational excellence is the number one goal. And, this is not a finite goal limited to increasing academic skills alone. It involves working with each student to secure the knowledge, direction, and interpersonal skills needed for the chosen career path and for his part in the entire fabric of the community. Issue 2: After educational excellence as the priority goal, the prevalence of school, community and parental teamwork to reach goals is vital. Students do not learn and are not taught in a vacuum. Teachers, community members, students and parents benefit by working together to reach their goals. We can do more by communicating and partnering with one another to reach mutually beneficial goals. Age: 42 Town: Hernando Party: Non partisan office Occupation: Administrative secretary, Academy of Environmental Sciences Education: High school diploma Community involvement: Disaster relief committee, Inverness First United Methodist Church Issue 1: It is often said that school attendance is both a right and a responsibility. Many students have lost sight of that concept and we as a community have allowed it to happen. Currently, our students do not have accountability with their attendance. Having a very clear plan in place holds students accountable for coming to school, and for being on time as well. Issue 2: Envision schools, staff, families, and our community working as a team. Standing together as one, will build stronger relationships, between our schools, homes, and community. This can be accomplished simply through proper communication.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESunday, August 10, 2014 G13 ELECTION2014 G4Sunday, August 10, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE ELECTION2014 Age: 59 Town: Floral City Party:Non partisan office Occupation: Teacher, Sumter County School District. Education: Bachelors in English Literature, University of South Florida. Community involvement: curriculum mapping committee; Citrus County School Board member 1994-98. Issue No. 1: Prioritizing is paramount to getting the most from tax dollars. Making well thought out decisions about the long term effects of what might appear to be prudent could go a long way toward preventing shortfalls in the future. Issue No. 2: The implementation of Common Core is going to create a shortfall of millions of dollars in testing, textbooks, professional development, and technology. Age: 68 Town: Inverness Party: Non partisan office Occupation: Semi-retired, home maintenance/repair, independent insurance claims adjustor. Education: High school diploma Community involvement: None. Issue No. 1: Back to basics of education. We can maintain state standards while still establishing a FIRM expectation of the students responsibilities. Insist on student performance. I believe if a child knows what is expected of them, in most all cases, they will rise to the challenge. Issue No. 2: Complete review of budget line by line and not a general look at departments. With a budget of $220 million, even just a 1 percent reduction would result in over $2 million in savings. School Board District 3 WHAT: Citrus County School Board District 3 COVERS: All Citrus County TERM: 4 years PAY: $33,282 WHO: Doug Dodd, Quinton Herrin Jr. and Sheila Whitlaw. Race is nonpartisan. ON THE BALLOT: Aug 26 open primary. Top two votegetters are in Nov. 4 General Election OR top privary winner is elected with at least 50 percent plus one of the vote. Age: 44 Town: Crystal River and Floral City Party: Republican Occupation: Owner, Diamond C Ag Services Inc. Crystal River Education: High school graduate Civic involvement: Crystal River Little League; Player Agent Dixie League of Citrus County. Issue No. 1: We need to have in place an executive who is willing to make the tough decisions and begin the process of getting our fiscal house in order. Too many times we have all been witness to a decision or series of events, which many of us know and believe would have never been tolerated in our given professions. It is my responsibility to see that we re-establish a level of trust with the community which has been lost. Issue No. 2. The second issue facing the county today is our continual failure to follow our own Administrative Regulations (AR's). We have in place, generally speaking, a set of rules which are designed to guide us through our every day decision making, yet we (county) continually fail to follow them. The solution to all of this is simple, follow the rules. If the rules are incorrect or ineffective then amend the rules, but do not blatantly violate them. Age: 64 Town: Floral City Party: Republican Occupation: Retired from sheriffs office Education: High school graduate Civic Involvement: American Legion Post 225, charter member; NARLEO; Ag Alliance of Citrus County; Floral City Heritage Council. Issue No. 1: Protecting our large population of senior citizens on fixed incomes and young working families from drastic tax increases. By encouraging new businesses and industry to come here, we will broaden the tax base and remove the need to raise the tax base. More businesses, means more jobs and in turn, more people earning wages and paying taxes. Issue No. 2: It really is not necessary to reinvent the wheel. By looking at our neighboring counties, who are ahead of us, we can learn a lot. Marion County recently spent millions of dollars to develop an inland port that now features UPS as a tenant. Sumter County is developing over 1,200 acres of inland port space off I-75 and S.R. 44 near the Wildwood exit. Hernando County has mile after mile of paved roads and available buildings in their industrial park adjacent to the Brooksville Airport. We can, and should, learn from our neighbors.

Education: Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Florida Southern College; bachelor of arts in Criminal Justice, St. Leo University; masters in education; University of Southern Mississippi, Community involvement: Friends of Fort Cooper State Park. Issue No. 1: The changing standards, curriculum, and graduation requirements and how the board manages these changes while making sure they serve our students' best interest. Graduation requirements continue to change and our schools must be ready to guide students through this process preparing them to graduate on time. In the midst of navigating these changes, we must make sure our students are learning and are ready for a productive lifestyle ahead. Issue No. 2: With a slow recovering economy and declining student enrollment, funding issues will continue into the next several years. The school budget reserves are at minimum levels and there is little room to meet a large financial crisis. My degree in business administration and my experience in public budgeting and personal finance give me an advantage in this area.

Education: High school diploma Community involvement: Career & Technology Education Task Force chairman; LifeSouth Community Blood Centers Advisory Board. Issue No. 1: Continue to support engaging and relevant technology and curriculum to students to better prepare them for their future college and career paths. Because the state's legislative mandate on transitioning from print to digital curriculum was just accelerated this last legislative session, it is critical that our schools, teachers and most especially students have the necessary individual digital student devices (a.k.a. tables, iPads etc.). Issue No. 2: I am opposed to the overemphasis of high-stakes testing; I am against these tests being used punitively against our students and teachers.

Age: 71 Town: Beverly Hills Party: Non-partisan office Occupation: Teacher, Citrus County School District Education: Bachelor of science in criminal justice, Rutgers University. Community involvement: Citrus County Education Association Issue No. 1: The most important issue in Citrus County Schools is finance. A shrinking tax base, reduction in student population, sluggish commercial growth, and of course the ever present inflation all combine to reduce monies available for education. The first step in solving the problem is to do a zero based budget exercise. Prioritize every element of the budget and justify expenses. Issue No. 2.

Education: Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Florida Southern College; bachelor of arts in Criminal Justice, St. Leo University; masters in education; University of Southern Mississippi, Community involvement: Friends of Fort Cooper State Park. Issue No. 1: The changing standards, curriculum, and graduation requirements and how the board manages these changes while making sure they serve our students' best interest. Graduation requirements continue to change and our schools must be ready to guide students through this process preparing them to graduate on time. In the midst of navigating these changes, we must make sure our students are learning and are ready for a productive lifestyle ahead. Issue No. 2: With a slow recovering economy and declining student enrollment, funding issues will continue into the next several years. The school budget reserves are at minimum levels and there is little room to meet a large financial crisis. My degree in business administration and my experience in public budgeting and personal finance give me an advantage in this area.

Education: Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education, Samford University, Birmingham, Ala.; masters in instruction and curriculum, Grand Canyon University, Phoenix, Ariz. Community involvement: Daughters of the American Revolution. Issue No. 1:.Expand relationships with parents, guardians, and community groups. If elected, I will place a strong focus on reaching out to parents, guardians, and community groups and organizations who are dedicated to providing resources to enhance the quality of education in Citrus County. Issue No, 2: I am committed to supporting a rigorous curriculum and providing teachers with the tools and resources that they need to meet the needs of all level learners. Age: 56 Town: Lecanto Party: Non partisan office Occupation: School board incumbent since June 2013. Education: Bachelors in Elementary Education, St. Leo University; masters in Educational Leadership, University of South Florida. Community involvement: College of Central Florida board trustee. Issue No. 1: We are losing instructional, leadership and support staff, with proven records of success who possess deep levels of intellectual capital, at an alarming rate. Our students are seeing more and more fulltime substitutes teaching in our classrooms. We must prioritize spending, evaluate needs and qualify our budgeting based on how the expenditures impact student achievement. Issue No. 2: Meeting the challenges of development, implementation, maintenance of technology and funding of infrastructure needed to administer assessments online and provide instructional materials in digital format, as well as the cost of providing lap tops for every student. Age: 70 Town: Inverness Party: Non partisan office Occupation: Incumbent school board member Education: Bachelor of arts in English, Jacksonville University; masters of arts, English Education, Florida State University; masters of science in Guidance and Counseling, Rollins College. Community involvement: Salvation Army; Family Resource Center. Issue 1: Striving for educational excellence is the number one goal. And, this is not a finite goal limited to increasing academic skills alone. It involves working with each student to secure the knowledge, direction, and interpersonal skills needed for the chosen career path and for his part in the entire fabric of the community. Issue 2: After educational excellence as the priority goal, the prevalence of school, community and parental teamwork to reach goals is vital. Students do not learn and are not taught in a vacuum. Teachers, community members, students and parents benefit by working together to reach their goals. We can do more by communicating and partnering with one another to reach mutually beneficial goals. Age: 42 Town: Hernando Party: Non partisan office Occupation: Administrative secretary, Academy of Environmental Sciences Education: High school diploma Community involvement: Disaster relief committee, Inverness First United Methodist Church Issue 1: It is often said that school attendance is both a right and a responsibility. Many students have lost sight of that concept and we as a community have allowed it to happen. Currently, our students do not have accountability with their attendance. Having a very clear plan in place holds students accountable for coming to school, and for being on time as well. Issue 2: Envision schools, staff, families, and our community working as a team. Standing together as one, will build stronger relationships, between our schools, homes, and community. This can be accomplished simply through proper communication.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESunday, August 10, 2014 G15 ELECTION2014 G2Sunday, August 10, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE ELECTION2014 Fifth Judicial Circuit Court Judge Age: 59 Town: Belleview Party: Non partisan office Occupation: Incumbent circuit court judge Education: Bachelor of arts in Criminal Justice, University of Florida; juris doctorate, Stetson Law School.

Issue No. 1: Judicial dockets in Florida have been increasing steadily over the last five years without a concurrent increase in court funding. Like the private sector, the courts have to learn to do more with less. Judges need to continue to find creative ways to serve those who find themselves in the court system without creating more costs and expenses for litigants. Issue No.2: All parties to court proceedings should be treated with dignity and respect. I believe there is currently a lack of dignity and respect shown in court proceedings. I will strive to instill a feeling and expectation of dignity and respect in the courtroom. Age: 47 Town: Ocala Party: Non partisan office Occupation: Attorney Education: Bachelor of science, University of Central Florida; Juris Doctorate, Oklahoma City University School of Law. Civic Involvement: Knights of Columbus; Shriners. Issue No. 1: The main issue is to provide the best judge for the citizens of this circuit. The fact that 12 judges were up for election this term and all got elected to office unopposed, except for this judge, speaks volumes as to this judicial seat. Bo will treat everyone with respect and uphold the rule of law. Issue No. 2: Fairness and courage to make the right decision. Age: 53 Town: Bushnell Party: Non partisan office Occupation: Attorney Education: Bachelor of arts, University of Tampa; juris doctorate, Stetson University College of Law.

WHAT: Circuit Court Judge COVERS: All Citrus County, plus Hernando, Lake, Marion and Sumter counties TERM: 6 years PAY: $146,080 WHO: Mary Hatcher, incumbent Sandy Kautz, Denise Dymond Lyn and Bo Samargya ON THE BALLOT: Aug 26 open primary. Top two votegetters are in Nov. 4 General Election OR top primary winner is elected with at least 50 percent plus one of the voteGet out and vote on Aug. 26, 2014I would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to Get Out and Vote on Aug. 26, 2014! Elections are always important, exciting and have consequences. This year is no different. All voters will be able to vote in the race for County Commission District 4. The race is a universal primary contest because there is no general election opponents in that race. The winner will be decided in the primary election. Therefore, the republican race will be on the democratic and non-partisan ballots as well as the republican ballot giving all voters the opportunity to vote for the next County Commissioner in District 4. The non-partisan races for Circuit Judge, 5th Judicial Circuit and School Board Seats 1,3,4 and 5 are on all ballots and will potentially be decided in the primary election. In the non-partisan races, the winner must receive 50 percent plus one vote in order to win. This means that in the non-partisan races with more than two candidates, if the top vote getter does not receive 50 percent plus one vote, then the two candidates with the most votes will go to the general election where the race will be decided. This law governs nonpartisan races only. The republican primary ballot will have a race for Governor. The democratic ballot has races for the Governor and Attorney General. These are all important races for Citrus County voters to be participating in the process of elected officials on the State level. This election cycle we have an unprecedented number of absentee ballot requests. Nearly 20,000 voters have requested an absentee ballot! Laws changed and voters requesting an absentee ballot in 2012 have a request good for two election cycles unless they told us differently. Early Voting is available for nine days for the primary election and 10 days for the general election. With all these opportunities to cast your ballot, we still are amazed that the highest percentage of voters voting in the primary election in recent history is 30 percent! Lets hope this year is different.

As your County Commissioner, Winn Webb will continue, as he has in the past, to consistently vote to reduce taxes and reduce government spending. From 2008 to 2012, Winns conservative leadership style was instrumental in reducing the county budget by approximately $48 million, with little or no loss of service. Winn Webb is the only candidate for District 4 County Commission with a proven record as a fiscal conservative. He is a proven leader who can hit the ground running from day one. With good leadership, Citrus Countys best days are ahead of us. W Top Priorities To keep taxes low and stable in order to protect the large population of senior citizens who are on fixed incomes and young working families who are struggling in the current uncertain economy.
