County staff bucking the trend of obese firefightersA.B. SIDIBE Staff writerLECANTO According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 70percent of firefighters are obese. And, the study said, nearly half of all deaths of on-duty firefighters are due to cardiovascular events. The study also revealed an increased risk of job-related disabilities spawned by obesity. Citrus County seems to be bucking that trend. Since the merger of the Citrus County Sheriffs Office and fire rescue in the fall of 2011, Sheriff Jeff Dawsy reorganized the training process, making it more rigorous. A Fire Rescue Agility Test (FRAT) is the new standard, according Curt Clendenney, fire rescue training coordinator at the Citrus County Fire Training Center in Lecanto. We currently have an 18-month breaking-in period and then it becomes punitive. But every combat firefighter has to pass the FRAT and to successfully complete it in 8minutes and 56 seconds or less, PATFAHERTY Staff writerIf your next handyman project calls for a crane, power plant components or hand tools, Duke Energy has a deal for you. The company will try to auction off more than 1.3million individual items from the retired Crystal River Nuclear Plant (CR3). The public auction will consist of a two-day preview and inspection opportunity followed by a three-day live and webcast auction, Sept.22 to 26, which is about five years since the plant quit producing power. It was retired last year. According to Duke, proceeds from the sale of the assets will reduce future customer power bill charges related to the nuclear plant. The company contracted Heritage Global Partners, an asset valuation and auctioning services firm based in San Diego, California, to market and auction assets no longer needed at the plant due to its decommissioning Individuals or companies may view and inspect the tools and equipment from 9a.m. to 4p.m. Sept.22 to 23 at the Crystal River Energy Complex, at 15760 W. Power Line Street off U.S. 19 north of Crystal River. Participants are required to pre-register and submit an access form by 3p.m. Sept.18.

The public has absorbed images of heavily armed police, snipers trained on protesters and tear gas plumes. Against that backdrop, Attorney General Eric Holder said that when police and citizens need to restore calm, I am deeply concerned that the deployment of military equipment and vehicles sends a conflicting message.

Setup for the communitys first One Rake at a Time-inspired cleanup will begin at 8a.m. Saturday, Aug.23, with work running from 9to 11a.m. Volunteers are sought to assist Rotarians in the effort. Volunteers are asked to park at the back entrance of the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park off West Fishbowl Drive. From the parking lot, volunteers can walk to the double gate on the left of the West Entrance Caf. This cleanup is in response to the successes of the Kings Bay and Hunter Springs Park cleanups, initiated by Crystal River Rotary under the direction of Art Jones, who pioneered the One Rake at a Time project.

ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerAn act of kindness in the remembrance of 9/11 is bringing the community together to support the children of Citrus County. As a tribute to those who were lost in the terrorist attacks on 9/11, Sept.11 has been designated a National Day of Service and Remembrance. Collecting new tennis shoes and socks for local children in need is the countys Nature Coast Volunteer Center and Retired and Senior Volunteer Programs way of serving the community through the 13th annual Two Good Soles drive. We do the shoes and socks drive to benefit the children in need, said Laurie Diestler, Nature Coast Volunteer Center supervisor. The goal is to help hundreds of children. Twenty collection boxes are set out throughout the county, and will accept donations through Sept.11. The shoes and socks will be distributed Sept.11 to different organizations at a 9/11 remembrance ceremony, Diestler said. We have invited the commissioners, state representatives, fire rescue, sheriffs office, Nature Coast EMS and diverse dignitaries. Last year, they collected 4,080 pairs of shoes. We always hope that we reach that amount, Diestler said. We dont go into the drive with a goal set. We just hope that the community would come together. School Student Services told me that they had a student who benefited this year from what we collected last year, she said. On the first day of school this year, they replaced his shoes because his shoes were way too small. He wasnt even wearing socks. The public is invited to participate in this years service project by donating new shoes and socks, or by sponsoring one pair of shoes by making a monetary donation to the Friends of the Nature Coast Volunteer Center, which will then purchase shoes and socks for the drive. Checks may be mailed or delivered to the Nature Coast Volunteer Center, 2804 W. Marc Knighton Court, Key No. 4, Lecanto, FL 34461. At noon on Sept.11, all the shoes will be picked up by volunteers and taken to the county resource center, where they will be counted and divided among local participating nonprofit organizations to distribute to children. A ceremony with local dignitaries will take place at 2:30 p.m. Organizations benefiting from the shoe drive include: The Citrus Abuse Shelter Association, the district Student Services department, Daystar Life Center, Citrus United Basket, Family Resource Center, the SPOT Family Center and the Mission in Citrus. I have always felt that when students are in school and have worries with their daily life, taking one of their concerns away is pertinent in their educational learning, Diestler said. One pair of shoes makes a difference in one childs life. I think that is very important. For information, call 352-249-1275.

Around theCOUNTY Waters Week planning meeting setThe Citrus 20/20 Inc. Save Our Waters Week Committee will meet at 10 a.m. Monday, Aug. 18, in Room 219 of the Lecanto Government Center, 3600 W. Sovereign Path, off County Road 491. The purpose of the meeting is to plan and coordinate activities for Citrus Countys 19th annual Save Our Waters Week, Sept. 20 to 27. All interested organizations and individuals are welcome to attend and encouraged to participate. For information, call Lace Blue-McLean at 352-2010149. Gardening workshop TuesdayCitrus County FloridaFriendly Landscaping is offering a free pestmanagement workshop from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 19. Gardening practices such as seasonal scheduling, catch-can calibration and selection of plant materials tolerant of droughty conditions are essential to creating a sustainable landscape. Thorough and infrequent watering produces a plant with deeper roots, promoting drought tolerance and hardiness during the cooler seasons. Overwatering is not a beneficial practice and often inhibits a successful lawn or garden. Classes are at the Citrus County Extension Service, 3650 W. Sovereign Path, Lecanto. Call Steven Davis at 352-527-5708 to confirm participation. For more information about Florida-Friendly Landscaping, visit tinyurl.com/flfriendly.Precinct changes announcedThe Citrus County Supervisor of Elections Office wants to alert the public to voting precinct changes.

SIDIBE Staff writerNancy Patat, 70, and her friends Marie Cohen and Linda Chapell were en route to a clairvoyant for a reading when what they couldnt see coming happened a wrong turn left their vehicle stuck in sugar sand in a patch of woods in Dunnellon. Only one of their cellphones had reception in the area and, worse, they had no clue where they were during the sweltering late July morning. One of the women was on oxygen and another walks with the aid of cane. Enter two veteran law enforcement officers: Citrus County Sheriffs Office Deputy Tim Horton and an agency public service officer and supervisor, Sgt. Bob McIntosh. We used GPS to locate them in the area off Dunklin Street in Dunnellon. It is pretty wooded there and they were stuck in the sand, Horton said. When we got there, we couldnt drive to their location, so we walked about 300 to 400 yards to get to them, Horton said. He said they found the trio not really dehydrated, but needing water. The two officers went to work by calling fire rescue to bring the women some water, and also called a tow truck. Horton and McIntosh also offered comfort to the women. They were so nice and wonderful. They checked on us, told us help was on the way and one of them even gave us gum to chew because it was so hot and we were so thirsty, Patat said. They are our heroes. I just wanted these officers recognized for the nice things they did for three women who were stuck in the woods. They deserve the credit, Patat added. Horton, however, said what they did is part of the job. I am sure Sgt. McIntosh will say the same thing: This is what we do. We are here to help people, and I got into law enforcement to help people. I would do the same for any citizen that needs my help, said Horton, who is a sevenyear CCSO veteran who has been in law enforcement for 22 years. McIntosh echoed Hortons sentiments. Just putting those people at ease made it all worth it, McIntosh said. McIntosh and Horton stayed with the women for more than two hours before their vehicle was removed from the sand. I dont know why the psychic didnt predict we were going to get stuck, but thank God for those heroes and their help we got saved, Patat said.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Officers lauded for rescue of stranded women NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESSSince 1947, Griffs Bar has been an Inverness landmark, perhaps the oldest bar still in business in Citrus County. In a few months, however, this institution is scheduled to be torn down and a two-unit retail building built in its place. Recently, owner Willy McClain sold the property, but not the business, to Win-Development, of Belleair, for $800,000. They just wanted my dirt, McClain said. Im still keeping my liquor license and everything else. McClain has owned the landmark bar named for her former father-in-law and original owner, Griffin McClain, for the past 18 years, having purchased it from Harold Grumbling, who also owned it for 18 years. Originally, it was across Main Street in front of where Heidis Restaurant is now when the Heidis building was a lawnmower store. The building where Griffs is now, at 825 W. Main St., was a furniture store for 30 years. In 1984, they moved the bar across the street all in one night, McClain said. They got a bunch of customers to help carry pool tables and everything across the street and they opened here the next day, never missing a beat. McClain bought the bar in 1994, a few years after she and Griffin McClains son were divorced. Its been a great business, she said. McClain also said she is well acquainted with the bars reputation as a rough place, and hasnt been able to change it. They call it a gun and knife club, and we had some drug problems in the past, but that was years ago. That crowd has been long gone, she said. Its been remodeled twice, but it still has that reputation. The sale came as a surprise earlier this year, with the development company approaching her with an offer. McClain said it will be sad to see the building demolished, and that she plans to watch it go down. Theres a lot of history here, she said. As for the future, shes not sure yet what she wants to do. She owns property in Inverness north on U.S. 41, and may open up a smaller Griffs. It will always be called Griffs, she said. I would never call another place anything else. On Friday, ChronicleFacebook friends posted their thoughts about Griffs. Heres what a few of them said: Griffs provided an income for my family and me. I met the love of my life there who is also a staff member. Ive also met some of my greatest friends there. To say that Ive seen many interesting things and had been put in situations Ive never encountered my whole life is an understatement thankfully more good than bad. Ive had many, many great memories such as birthday parties, costume parties or even just a great girls night out. Lauren Hewes Its been a fantastic mecca for Free Poker on Tuesday and Friday nights for the past eight years and will continue until the last day! Friendliest bar in town, no question. I also met the woman of my dreams and some lifelong friends there. Bryan Frechette We had a GREAT time there celebrating my granddaughters 21st birthday and first bar experience at 2 a.m. Lynn Dragoun Always memories with the most amazing friends. My husband threw my 40th birthday party at Griffs. We also had a event for a friend when her house was taken by fire. Tammy Tuffy-Mullis I played dart tournaments in this bar great times, sorry to see it go. Linda Demers NANCY KENNEDY /ChronicleWilly McClain has owned Griffs Bar for the past 18 years.

Crist on Friday received more than $474,000 when he received his second check of public matching funds. He has now received slightly more than $1 million in state money to assist his campaign. Crist is not the only politician getting taxpayer help. Former state senator Nan Rich has received slightly less than $200,000. So far this year, the state has paid out $2.4 million to candidates, including more than $420,000 to Attorney General Pam Bondi, more than $343,000 to Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater and $360,000 to Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam.

Holding flickering candles, fans of Elvis Presley made a slow, nighttime walk past his gravesite at Graceland on Friday, marking his death 37 years ago. Fans strolled quietly through the Mediation Garden at Presleys longtime Memphis, Tennessee, home. Presleys grave is in the garden, and his mother, father and grandmother are buried there. The home is now a museum and a centerpiece of the Graceland tourist attraction that draws about 500,000 fans each year from around the world. The scene is repeated each year on the anniversary of the death of the King of Rock n Roll. Presley died at age 42 on Aug. 16, 1977, of a heart attack, shocking and saddening his fans worldwide. Mark Summers 31, said it was his first time attending the vigil. Summers, of Birmingham, England, is an Elvis tribute artist who performs theater shows across Europe. Summers wore a black shirt, black pants and a hairstyle shaped like a pompadour, just like his idol. He said no other performer could touch the charisma he had on stage. Summers said he admired Presley not only for his music and his act, but also for his good qualities as a person. Presley was known for giving money to charities and cars to fans. The vigil is a highlight of Elvis Week, an annual celebration of Presleys career and his life. This year, other Elvis Week events have included an auction of authenticated Presley artifacts which included a 1977 Cadillac Seville used by Presley and the groundbreaking of a planned 450-room hotel at the Graceland tourist attraction.Mr. T pities criminals as he awaits jury dutyROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. Lawrence Tureaud, better known as Mr. T, was in true form as he waited outside a suburban Chicago courthouse to be called for jury duty. Sporting his usual Mohawk and wearing an FBI sweatshirt and hat, but not a gold chain, the star of TVs The A-Team signed autographs and made his feelings known. He said, I pity the criminals today, as he explained he had been designated a potential juror for a trial scheduled for Friday. The Daily Herald in Arlington Heights reports the 62-year-old Tureaud said he never considered playing hooky after receiving the jury summons. Mr. T said he understood his duty and said its not his style to shirk responsibilities. Tureaud wasnt picked as a juror.SNL alumnus Kattan gets probationLOS ANGELES Chris Kattan has been sentenced to three years probation for driving under the influence and crashing his Mercedes into a Department of Transportation vehicle on a Southern California freeway earlier this year. The Los Angeles Times reports the former Saturday Night Live star was also ordered Thursday to pay $500 fine and attend an alcohol education program. A restitution hearing will be held next month to determine how much Kattan owes the state for damage to the DOT vehicle. The 43-year-old was arrested in February after he struck the vehicle that belonged to a crew conducting maintenance on a guardrail. Kattan, who was on SNL from 1996 to 2003, is best known for the character Mango. He also starred with Will Ferrell in A Night at the Roxbury.

responses like that in Ferguson have become the problem instead of the solution. Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., said he will introduce legislation to reverse police militarization. Sen. Carl Levin, DMich., chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said his committee will review the program to determine if the Defense Departments surplus equipment is being used as intended. One night after the violence that accompanied the presence of militarystyle equipment in Ferguson, tensions eased when a police captain, unprotected and shaking hands, walked through a crowd in a gesture of reconciliation. The contrast added to perception that the tanks and tear gas had done more harm than good. As the country concludes its longest wartime period, the military has turned over thousands of surplus weapons and armored trucks to local police who often trained alongside the military. A report by the American Civil Liberties Union in June said police agencies had become excessively militarized, with officers using training and equipment designed for the battlefield on city streets. The report found the amount of goods transferred through the military surplus program rose from $1 million in 1990 to nearly $450 million in 2013. Every police force of any size in this country has access to those kinds of weapons now, said David Harris, a police expert at the University of Pittsburgh law school. It makes it more likely to be used (and) is an escalation all by itself. In Louisiana, masked police in full body armor carrying AR-15 assault rifles raided a nightclub without a warrant, looking not for terrorists but underage drinkers and firecode violations. Officers in California train using the same counterinsurgency tactics as those used in Afghanistan. Theyre not coming in like were innocent until proven guilty, said Quinn Eaker. SWAT teams last August raided his organic farm and community, the Garden of Eden, in Arlington, Texas. Theyre coming in like: Were gonna kill you if you move a finger. Police found no drugs or weapons and filed no charges after their search, which authorities said followed standard procedure. In 1990, Congress authorized the Pentagon to give surplus equipment to police to help fight drugs, which then gave way to the fight against terrorism. Though violent crime nationwide is at its lowest level in generations and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have largely concluded, the military transfers have increased. Police say the equipment, which includes free body armor, night vision goggles and scopes, keeps officers safe and prepares them for the worst-case scenarios. The U.S. has provided 610 mine-resistant armored trucks, known as MRAPs, across the country, nearly all since August 2013, including at least nine in Los Angeles County, according to Michelle McCaskill, a spokeswoman for the Defense Logistics Agency.LOCAL/NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST17, 2014 A5 MANAGERS SPECIALS 000IWSS Hwy. 44 W.

This years event will be at Citrus Memorial hospital on Sunday, Sept.14, with registration beginning at 7a.m. The event is held each year to honor the 343 firefighters, 60 law enforcement officers, eight emergency medical technicians and 125 military personnel who perished in the World Trade Center Towers and Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001. Participants in this grueling fitness challenge are tasked with climbing 110 flights of stairs to symbolize the floors of the World Trade Center towers. Many firefighters who participate will have the added challenge of completing the climb in full gear. The Professional Firefighters of Citrus County are putting on this athletic challenge to bring awareness to the profession of first responders and firefighters, as well as memorialize those lost on 9/11, said driver engineer Nicholas Faso of the Citrus County Sheriffs Office Fire Rescue Division. Were thankful to community members who have participated alongside us in years past and look forward to an even bigger and better event this year as we climb what is essentially a very emotional vertical 5K. Members of the community and fitness enthusiasts are encouraged to participate in the climb alongside emergency personnel or cheer from the sidelines to motivate participants. During the climb, families can enjoy refreshments, fire apparatus displays, health information and a free Kids Firefighter Challenge where children will have the opportunity to compete in an obstacle course and complete their own combat challenge. The Kids Firefighter Challenge includes an inflatable obstacle course, firefighter sled and an opportunity for kids to save a victim with the help of a local firefighter. All participants will receive a childrens firefighter helmet, wristband and event sticker. Registration for the climb begins at 7a.m. and the event starts at 8a.m. with a group photo, dedication and prayer, followed by a brief moment of silence. Additional moments of silence will be observed during the event at 8:46a.m. (World Trade Center North Tower), 9:03a.m. (WTC South Tower), 9:37a.m. (Pentagon) and 10:03a.m. (Flight 93) to remember those who lost their lives during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Theres no doubt this event is strenuous even for those in peak physical condition, said Citrus Memorial spokeswoman Katie Mehl. The event is both physically and emotionally taxing; participants will leave with a renewed admiration for our first responders. As they trek up the equivalent of 110 flights, climbers will carry a picture tag of one of the 343 fallen firefighters with them. Water, towels and fruit will be available at various intervals and an auxiliary rest area will be located at the mid-point of the climb. Those interested in participating can register online at www.imathlete.com/events/ citrusfitnesschallenge for a $35 registration fee, which includes a donation to the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation, commemorative T-shirt, wristband, event patch and sticker. Day-of registration will be $45. GEARContinued from Page A1

Clendenney said. He said the tests are administered quarterly. Clendenney said the agency has some firefighters who have done all the new tasks in less than 4minutes, while other have struggled to meet the standard. Personally, my time is 5:05, every time I do it, he said. Clendenney said the new standards have made a difference and that fire rescue is actually gearing up for health assessments for personnel sometime in October. The tasks involved in FRAT are grueling. First the firefighter has to don about 70pounds worth of gear, including an oxygen tank and full-face mask. Then the trainee must pick up a hose weighing about 74pounds and sling it across a shoulder and begin to climb three flights of stairs making sure to use every step. That is followed by a series of tasks including a descent down the same flights of stairs and dragging a 165-pound rescue dummy 50feet. The tasks also include a simulation of carrying two 46-pound buckets of foam another 50feet. FRAT is very tough, but more than likely these are some of the conditions a firefighter would encounter at a real combat situation, Clendenney said. I have to say things have improved since we started doing these tasks in 2012, he added. Firefighters Ryan Blevins and Shaun Busbee of Engine71 recently demonstrated some of the tasks at the training facility. Blevins and Busbee seemed to have paced themselves, and completed their tasks in less than 6minutes. I love doing this, Busbee said as he was shedding his gear. When I first started working here (two and a half years ago) we didnt have this kind of training. It was a lot easier, but I love this because it will keep me in shape, he added. The training center has been a state-certified facility since 1999. Facilities operated by state-certified instructors include multiple classrooms, a four-story training tower, a 1,200square-foot burn building, a two-story maze, a vehicle extrication pad and simulated propane props. The burn building can have real fires to be extinguished with water from fire hoses. The maze and the tower can be fogged with smoke to restrict visibility in rescue exercises. Students learn how to release victims trapped in wrecked vehicles and the best way to deal with a flaming propane tank.LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST17, 2014 A7 000IYB8 The First United Methodist Church (precinct 400) 3896 South Pleasant Grove Road in Inverness has moved to the First Baptist Church of Inverness, 550 Pleasant Grove Road.

Special to the ChronicleThe 2014 Truth In Millage (TRIM) notices were mailed on Friday, Aug.15, according to Citrus County Property Appraiser Les Cook. The TRIM notices contain proposed taxes and values and are now available online at the appraisers website. After receipt of proposed millage rates from each taxing authority, the Property Appraisers Office reports the proposed property taxes on behalf of the taxing authorities. The TRIM notice contains important information including the following: Page 1 has three column sections that show your taxes and tax rates: column1, last years amounts; column2, if no budget change is made; and column3, if the present proposed budget change is adopted. Dates and times of budget hearings for each taxing authority are listed along with the phone numbers for inquiries concerning tax rates and tax amounts. Please remember that millage rates and tax levies are the responsibility of each of the taxing authorities. Certain non-ad valorem assessments are indicated at the bottom of the page. The fire services MSBU that was included on your tax bill last year will appear on the TRIM notice this year. Anyone with questions regarding the fire services MSBU fee should call 352-527-2151. The solid waste fee that has typically been $25 per year was reduced for 2014 based upon ordinance 90-733 (a)(2). Unfortunately, this was not approved by the Board of County Commissioners in time to make any changes to the TRIM notices. However, the reduced solid waste fee will be reflected on tax bills mailed out in November 2014. On Page 2, market, assessed, exemption and taxable values are calculated along with a list of the assessment reductions and exemptions that apply to your property. Market value is the primary value established by the local Property Appraisers Office. These values were established as of Jan.1, 2014, based on the prior years sales and other relevant information and factors. If you do not see an exemption shown that you believe you applied and qualified for, you should contact the appraisers office at 352-341-6636 or 352-564-7136. As values began to stabilize, and in some areas increase, more homestead properties are once again benefiting from the protection of the Save Our Homes amendment that caps assessed value. When there has been no physical improvements, changes in ownership or exemption status to a property for this year, assessment changes are capped at 1.5percent. The number of potentially protected properties increased from 9,500 in 2013 to 21,644 in 2014. Your value questions can be answered by a trained staff appraiser by calling the phone number located midway on Page 2 of the TRIM Notice. The Property Appraisers Office is here to serve the public, and we work hard to establish fair and equitable values based on current market conditions, Property Appraiser Les Cook said in a news release. I encourage property owners to contact the office early by phone, email or in person with their value concerns so that we may offer explanations, exchange information and work toward a resolution. We are committed to taking the time to try to work with property owners. While in some cases we will have to agree to disagree, often the facts will dictate a solution that all parties can agree upon. Anyone with a difference of opinion that cannot be resolved within the 25-day period may further preserve their right of a formal appeal by filing a petition to the Value Adjustment Board, on or before Sept.9, 2014.

JAKECOYLE AP film writerNEW YORK Jamie Masada, the owner of the fabled Los Angeles-based comedy club the Laugh Factory, vividly remembers a warm exchange with comic Richard Jeni of the two sharing words of encouragement and gentle ribbing. The next day I heard he put a gun in his mouth and blew his head off, recalled Masada of Jenis 2007 suicide. At that point I said, God, could I do something to somehow prevent that? A few years later, having watched his family continuously depleted, Masada did do something. He began having a psychologist at the club several nights a week, offering stand-ups the opportunity for free sessions. Robin Williams, a frequent Laugh Factory performer who committed suicide Monday, marked only the latest comic genius to be plagued by demons of depression and addiction. But seldom has the gulf between the bright buoyancy of the performer and the inner pain of the man seemed greater or more unfathomable. How did someone who suffered such demons summon such starbursts of generosity and glee? Like countless others this week, Conan OBrien remembered Williams great capacity for thoughtfulness and kindness. When OBrien was feeling down during the Tonight Show debacle, a bike arrived out of the blue from Williams, outfitted for maximum ridiculousness. Said OBrien: Its particularly courageous for someone to be that generous of spirit in the face of that kind of depression. Such tales dont make it any easier to reconcile Williams life with his sad fate. The magnitude of the shock over Williams death has been matched only by the outpouring of grief for his loss. Ill never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, said his 25-year-old daughter, Zelda Williams. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. Williams publicist has said he had recently fought severe depression. Williams himself had occasionally spoken about his struggles (Do I get sad? Oh yeah. Does it hit me hard? Oh yeah, he told Terry Gross in 2006) and funneled his fights with alcoholism and addiction into his act. He largely won his battles with substance abuse, save for several relapses quickly followed by rehab, including a stint at Hazelden in Minnesota last month. His widow, Susan Schneider, added Thursday that Williams also was suffering from the early stages of Parkinsons disease. Those factors along with his heart surgery several years ago offer a slightly deeper understanding of Williams mental state in recent days and weeks. But his death also reinforces the long-held stereotype of the sad clown, the tortured funnyman. Comedian Jim Norton responded to Williams death with an essay titled Why the Funniest People Are Sometimes the Saddest in which he noted that in his 25 years of performing stand-up, he knew eight comics who killed themselves. When I find a comedian I admire, my first thing is: Whats wrong with this person? Norton says. Guys that Ive admired the most always had that cloud. And it wasnt a purposeful or a pseudo-artist thing. It was a real thing that they were constantly combating. It was kind of a way to keep sadness or depression off of you, to be funny. Particularly since the likes of Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor made stand-up into a more personal kind of truth-telling, many comedians have been drawn to the profession as a means for catharsis. Comedian Tig Notaro pushed stand-up perhaps further in this direction than ever before in a famous set in 2012. Days after being diagnosed with breast cancer, she hit the stage: Hello. I have cancer. How are you? Nowhere has the intersection between comedy and psychological pain been more thoroughly plumbed than on Marc Marons podcast, which Maron began after he had suicidal thoughts. In lengthy, candid interviews with fellow comics, Maron has explored the often-troubled psychology that drives people to bare themselves before crowds night after night, feeding off the laughter. Marons conversation with Williams from 2010 is one of his most naked interviews. In it, Williams called stand-up the one salvation and commented: How insecure are we, how desperately insecure that (it) made us do this for a living? He even riffed on his suicidal urges, doing a two-man routine between himself and his consciousness. Replaying the episode this week, Maron reflected: He was a person with his own problems that he carried with him. And I think part of his genius came from the struggle with those problems. Studies have shown a correlation between creative minds and such problems. Nancy Andreasen, a leading neuroscientist and psychologist, co-wrote the first empirical study that proved the increased likelihood of mood disorder in creative people. There really is no question that theres a statistical correlation of mental illness in highly creative people, said Andreasen, who chairs psychiatry at the University of Iowa. She stressed, though, that mental illness is usually treatable Its not a lifetime sentence, she said and that treatment does not diminish their creativity. The great misfortune is that mental illness is still so stigmatized, said Andreasen, la menting the lack of care for the mentally ill. This probably could have been prevented, and its a terrible misfortune that it wasnt. A recent study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry found that comedians are both highly extroverted and highly introverted and that they even show lower levels of traits associated with psychosis. Humor often requires the ability to think outside the box or see unusual connections where others dont, and this reflects, in a more muted form, the thought process and pattern seen in psychosis, Victoria Ando said in an email. But depression also doesnt care what you do for a living. It can strike anyone, any time, regardless of success, income or fame. In The Noonday Demon, an awardwinning, multi-disciplinarian atlas of depression, author Andrew Solomon wrote that his own depression hit hardest when his life was most in order: All the excuses for despair had been used up, he wrote. Solomon says he hopes Williams tragic end serves as a wake-up call. We have to recognize that if you have depression and enormous wealth and success, the love of most of the people in America you can have all of those things and still be subject to the ravages of depression, Solomon said. The tragedy is that he didnt have any place to turn. Improv and sketch comic Chris Gethard has been particularly vocal about his own struggles with depression with the hope of helping others. Following Williams death, he posted a picture of himself taken after an earlier day spent crying in bed, labeling it: This is the face of my mental illness. All kinds of people get depressed comedians just happen to be people that professionally deal with the manipulation of happiness, laughter and other positive emotions, so maybe it stands out more or gets more pronounced, Gethard said. The live auction will occur Wednesday through Friday, Sept.24 to 26, starting each day at 10a.m., and consist of a webcast. Individuals or companies may place bids in real time online or in person in the Magnolia Room at the Plantation on Crystal River, 9301 W. Fort Island Trail. Online or in-person registration is required for the live auction. Hosting a worldwide auction is just one of several methods we have used to sell CR3 assets, Duke spokeswoman Heather Danenhower said. The auction is marketed internationally, gives us worldwide exposure and enables us to capture the highest possible market price for the tools and equipment. We believe the competitive nature of an auction environment could produce higher returns for these types of assets than traditional bid events, which involve sealed bids. The tools and equipment will be arranged in bundles, called lots. Approximately 100 lots will be sold each hour. Because a third party is hosting the auction, Duke Energy employees with the exception of those directly involved with the auction may place bids on the items, she said. In most cases, we will allow the market to determine the sell price for the items with the highest bidder winning. However, certain auction items may have a minimum reserve price. We typically call 100 lots per hour at a live sale, sometimes more or less depending where we are at in the catalog and its sequence, explained David Barkoff with Heritage Global. Larger items of higher value may take longer. We stratify all lots in the catalog by asset class so, for example, bidders may see a run of pumps, or motors, or electrical gear, and so on in a sequence. This style of stratification is so bidders for specific assets within the catalog say pumps know generally when those given lots will be called. While we cant guarantee how fast or slow we go, we encourage all bidders to stay and enjoy the event; we do a few unique things including stratifying some key assets or marquee pieces throughout the catalog and day.

Laura Ingalls Wilder penned one of the most beloved childrens series of the 20th century, but her forthcoming autobiography will show devoted Little House on the Prairie fans a more realistic, grittier view of frontier living. Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography Wilders unedited draft that was written for an adult audience and eventually served as the foundation for the popular series is slated to be released by the South Dakota State Historical Society Press nationwide this fall. The not-safe-forchildren tales include stark scenes of domestic abuse, love triangles gone awry and a man who lit himself on fire while drunk off whiskey. Wilder and her daughter Rose Wilder Lane, herself a well-known author, tried and failed to get an edited version of the autobiography published throughout the early 1930s. The original rough draft has been preserved at the Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum in Mansfield, Missouri, for decades but hadnt been published. The childrens series never presented a romanticized version of life on the prairie in Little House in the Big Woods, Laura and her sister Mary gleefully help dissect the family pig before bouncing its inflated bladder back and forth in the yard. But the series also left out or fictionalized scenes that Wilder deemed unsuitable for kids, including much of the time the family spent in Burr Oak, Iowa, and Walnut Grove, Minnesota, according to Pamela Smith Hill, a Wilder biographer and the lead editor on the autobiography. So you can read Pioneer Girl as nonfiction rather than fiction and get a better feeling of how the historical Ingalls family really lived, what their relationships were and how they experienced the American West, she said. Wilder details a scene from her childhood in Burr Oak, in which a neighbor of the Ingalls pours kerosene throughout his bedroom, sets it on fire and proceeds to drunkenly drag his wife around by her hair before Wilders father Pa in the childrens books intervenes. Scenes like that make Wilders memoir sound like its filled with scandal and mature themes, which isnt exactly true either, according to Amy Lauters, an associate professor of mass media at Minnesota State University-Mankato. Its just that that first version was blunt, it was honest. It was full of the everyday sorts of things that we dont care to think about when we think about history, said Lauters, who has read the original manuscript and also is writing a book on Rose Wilder Lane. And its certainly not the fantasized version we saw on Little House on the Prairie the television show. Wilders story will likely do well in South Dakota, since the author moved to De Smet in the late 1870s with her family, eventually meeting her future husband there. For fans, the autobiography is chance to see from where Wilder drew her inspiration, said Sandra Hume, a Wilder aficionado who published an internationally distributed newsletter for 10 years and now helps manage Laurapalooza, a conference dedicated to all things Wilder. Delays for SC nuclear plant pressure industry Associated PressATLANTA Expensive delays are piling up for the companies building new nuclear power plants, raising fresh questions about whether they can control the construction costs that crippled the industry years ago. The latest announcement came this week from executives at SCANA Corp., which has been warned by its builders the startup of the first of two new reactors in South Carolina could be delayed two years or more. SCANA Corp. and plant co-owner Santee Cooper have not accepted that timeline from the companies designing and building the reactors, nor have they accepted responsibility for additional costs. That announcement may well foreshadow more delays for a sister project in eastern Georgia, and they have caught the attention of regulators and Wall Street. Delays generally cause cost increases, and the question becomes, Whos going to bear the costs? said C. Dukes Scott, executive director of the South Carolina Office of Regulatory Staff, a watchdog agency that monitors SCANA Corp.s spending. None of this is helpful for the nuclear power industry, which had hoped its newest generation of plants in Georgia and South Carolina would prove it could build without the delays and cost overruns so endemic years ago. When construction slows down, it costs more money to employ the thousands of workers needed to build a nuclear plant. Meanwhile, interest charges add up on the money borrowed to finance construction. A single day of delay in Georgia could cost $2million, according to an analysis by utility regulators. Utility consumers often end up paying for these extra charges in the form of pricier electricity bills, unless the government intervenes and forces shareholders to absorb all or some of the losses. Despite previous delays and problems, regulators in both states have previously said finishing the nuclear plants is cheaper than stopping and building gas-fired power plants. People take it seriously because really the operative word is uncertainty, said Paul Patterson, an analyst for Glenrock Associates. This is a large and complicated project and any significant delay has the potential to raise expenses. Originally, the first of SCANA Corp.s two new reactors was supposed to start commercial operation in April 2016. The company later moved that target startup date to early 2017. SCANA Corp. senior vice president Stephen Byrne said contractors now say that date could stretch to late 2018, if steps are taken to speed up construction. Without speeding up work, the first plant would be finished during the first half of 2019. The second of its new reactors would come online one year later. So far, the consortium building and designing the plant Westinghouse Electric Co. and Chicago Bridge & Iron have not told SCANA Corp. how much the schedule change might cost. My general experience with contractors though is the first number they hit you with has a lot of shock value in it, and you end up negotiating something more reasonable from there, Byrne said. Meanwhile, Southern Co. subsidiary Georgia Power and its co-owners are building two of the same reactors at Plant Vogtle. Historically, construction schedules in Georgia and South Carolina move roughly in tandem because they are building the same reactors, rely on the same contractors and get their parts from the same suppliers. Georgia Powers first new reactor was supposed to start operating in April 2016, with the second starting a year later. Associated PressThe working nuclear reactor is shown April 9, 2012, at the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station in Jenkinsville, S.C. The delays in the nuclear industry are adding up, adding hundreds of millions of dollars to already expensive projects. The latest announcement came from SCANA Corp., which expects a year-long delay in the completion of its two reactors under construction in South Carolina. Associated PressJudy Thompson illustrated the cover of Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography. The original version of the autobiography that Wilder likely wrote in the late 1920s was written on tablet paper with lead pencil. The South Dakota State Historical Society Press plans to publish an annotated version of the work this fall.

Pair may have plotted more kidnappingsCANTON, N.Y. A couple accused of kidnapping two young Amish sisters were prowling for easy targets and may have also planned to abduct other children, a sheriff said Saturday. Stephen Howells Jr., 39, and Nicole Vaisey, 25, were arrested Friday on charges they snatched the 7-yearold and 12-year-old girls from a roadside farm stand in front of their home near the Canadian border. Howells and Vaisey were arraigned late Friday on charges of first-degree kidnapping with the intent to physically harm or sexually abuse the victims.Taxpayers on hook for $6.5M in scandalTRENTON, N.J. New Jersey taxpayers are on the hook for more than $6.5 million to the law firm Gov. Chris Christie hired to represent his office in the George Washington Bridge laneclosing scandal. The state attorney generals office released recent bills from Gibson Dunn & Crutcher on Friday. The law firm represents Christies office in the state and federal investigations into last Septembers lane closures. Gibson Dunn earlier this year agreed to reduce its rate from the original agreement of $650 per hour to $350. The Record reported that taking into account Fridays released bills, the total tab for taxpayers for Christies office, his staff and those working for the legislative committee investigating the lane-closing scandal is $7.87 million so far.Woman reported dead still aliveSTERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. A woman who city officials said died in massive flooding this week in the Detroit area has a message to share. Im alive, Jena David said. Warren Fire Chief David Frederick had said someone pulled a Sterling Heights woman from her car Monday and carried her into a nearby business. She was unconscious when firefighters arrived and placed her in an emergency vehicle. City officials said the woman died. But, as it turns out, David, 30, regained consciousness in her hospital bed. Doctors discharged the Wayne State University psychology student, and her father drove her home. David saw a news report about a 30-year-old woman who had died after being carried into a Buddys Pizza location by an unknown man. Then, it dawned on her: Theyre talking about me. Everyone thinks Im dead, she told The Detroit News David said she would like to meet the man who possibly saved her life.

Report: Germany spied on US officialsBERLIN Germanys foreign intelligence agency eavesdropped on calls made by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and his predecessor Hillary Clinton, German magazine Der Spiegel reported Saturday. The respected news weekly reported that the agency, known by its German acronym BND, tapped a satellite phone conversation Kerry made in 2013 as part of its surveillance of telecommunications in the Middle East. The agency also recorded a conversation between Clinton and former U.N. SecretaryGeneral Kofi Annan a year earlier, Der Spiegel claimed. The magazine didnt give a source for its information, but said the calls were collected accidentally, that the three officials werent directly targeted, and the recordings were ordered destroyed immediately.Pope beatifies Korean martyrsSEOUL, South Korea Pope Francis beatified 124 Korean martyrs on Saturday, telling hundreds of thousands of people who turned out for his open-air Mass that their ancestors willingness to die rather than renounce their faith two centuries ago was a model for Asian missionaries today. The streets leading up to Seouls iconic Gwanghwamun Gate were packed with Koreans honoring the lay Catholics who founded the church here in the 18th century. Koreas church was founded not by foreign missionary priests, but by members of Koreas own noble classes, who learned of Christianity by reading books about it. Police in Seoul declined to give an estimate of the crowd size, but the Vatican said about 800,000 people had turned out. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressAn Iraqi Yazidi woman gestures Saturday during the visit of Cardinal Fernando Filoni, special envoy to Iraq, at a school that was turned into a shelter for displaced Christians and Yazids in Mangesh in northern Iraq. Islamic extremists shot 80 Yazidi men to death in Iraq, lining them up in small groups and opening fire with assault rifles before abducting their wives and children, officials and eyewitnesses reported Saturday. Associated PressFERGUSON, Mo. MissouriGov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency and imposed a curfew Saturday in a St. Louis suburb where police and protesters have clashed in the week since a black teenager was shot to death by a white police officer. Nixon said that though many protesters were making themselves heard peacefully, the state would not allow looters to endanger the community where 18year-old Michael Brown was shot in a street. The curfew will run from midnight to 5 a.m. Sunday. I am committed to making sure the forces of peace and justice prevail, Nixon during at a news conference that was interrupted by people objecting to the curfew and demanding the officer who shot Brown be charged with murder. We must first have and maintain peace. This is a test. The eyes of the world are watching, Nixon said. We cannot allow the ill will of the few to undermine the good will of the many. Nixons curfew announcement came after tensions again flared in Ferguson late Friday night. Earlier that day, local police identified the officer who shot Brown as Darren Wilson and released documents and video footage alleging that Brown had robbed a convenience store just before he was shot. Police said Wilson was unaware Brown was a suspect when he encountered him walking in the street with a friend. Nixon said the U.S. Department of Justice is beefing up its civil rights investigation of the shooting. Missouri State Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson, who is in charge of security in Ferguson, said 40 FBI agents were going door-to-door in the neighborhood starting Saturday, talking to people who might have information. Johnson assured those at the news conference that police would not enforce the curfew with armored trucks and tear gas but would communicate with protesters and give them ample opportunity to leave. But they were interrupted repeatedly. Why is the focus on security and not getting justice? Why is there not an arrest? one women yelled. Browns death had already ignited several days of clashes with furious protesters. On Saturday, some residents said it appeared the violent acts were being committed by people who came from other suburbs or states. On Friday night, Greg Thomas didnt see the familiar faces of protesters who have taken to the streets each night this week. Instead, he saw new people, younger, more eager for a confrontation with police. The 28-year-old former Marine said he left as quickly as he could when he heard people talking about getting their handguns. Theres three agendas out there, Thomas said. People who want to party, people who want to be martyrs and get killed by police, and the people here to protest. Associated PressPeople gather around a makeshift memorial for Michael Brown on Saturday at the site where Brown was shot by police a week ago in Ferguson, Mo. Browns shooting in the middle of a street following the suspected robbery of a box of cigars from a nearby market has sparked a week of protests, riots and looting in the St. Louis suburb. Missouri governor declares emergency, sets curfew Associated PressIRBIL, IraqIslamic extremists shot scores of Yazidi men to death in Iraq, lining them up in small groups and opening fire with assault rifles before abducting their wives and children, according to an eyewitness, government officials and people who live in the area. A Yazidi lawmaker on Saturday cited the mass killing in Kocho as evidence that his people are still at risk after a week of U.S. and Iraqi airstrikes on the militants. Meanwhile, warplanes targeted insurgents around a large dam that was captured by the Islamic State extremist group earlier this month, nearby residents said. In a statement, U.S. Central Command said the airstrikes Saturday were launched under the authority to support humanitarian efforts in Iraq, as well as to protect U.S. personnel and facilities. Central Command said the nine airstrikes conducted so far had destroyed or damaged four armored personnel carriers, seven armed vehicles, two Humvees and an armored vehicle. The U.S. began airstrikes against the Islamic State extremist group a week ago, in part to prevent the massacre of tens of thousands of Yazidis in northern Iraq. They fled the militants by scrambling up a barren mountain, where they got stranded. Most were eventually able to escape with help from Kurdish fighters. Islamic State fighters had surrounded the nearby village 12 days ago and demanded that its Yazidi residents convert or die. On Friday afternoon, they moved in. The militants told people to gather in a school, promising they would be allowed to leave Kocho after their details were recorded, said the eyewitness and the brother of the Kocho mayor, Nayef Jassem, who said he obtained his details from another witness. The militants separated the men from the women and children under 12 years old. They took men and male teens away in groups of a few dozen each and shot them on the edge of the village, according to a wounded man who escaped by feigning death. The fighters then walked among the bodies, using pistols to finish off anyone who appeared to still be alive, the 42-year-old man told The Associated Press by phone from an area where he was hiding. He spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing for his safety. They thought we were dead, and when they went away, we ran away. We hid in a valley until sundown, and then we fled to the mountains, he said. A Yazidi lawmaker, a Kurdish security official and an Iraqi official from Sinjar gave similar accounts. It was not clear precisely how many men were killed. Iraqi and Kurdish officials said at least 80 men were shot. Yazidi residents said they believe the number is higher. Associated PressMONROVIA, Liberia Liberian authorities expanded Ebola treatment centers in the capital Saturday to cope with increasing numbers of patients, while two more airlines announced they were halting flights to the capitals of Liberia and Sierra Leone amid the deepening crisis. Kenya Airways and regional carrier Gambia Bird join a number of other airlines in temporarily canceling flights to avoid transmitting the disease beyond the four countries already affected. The Kenya Airways flights will stop as of midnight Tuesday, said Titus Naikuni, chief executive officer of Kenya Airways. The decision was made with guidance from the countrys health ministry, Naikuni said. Gambia Bird said it had stopped flying to Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria. Health experts have warned that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa may last another six months. At least 1,145 people have died across Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria, and that may vastly underestimate the magnitude of the outbreak, the World Health Organization says. New figures released on Friday showed that Liberia now has recorded more deaths 413 than any of the other affected countries. On Saturday, a newly expanded, 34-bed Ebola treatment center was opened at the John F. Kennedy Memorial Medical Center in Monrovia, health officials said. Assistant health minister Tolbert Nyenswah told the Associated Press the new center will start admitting patients this evening or Monday. Another treatment center in the southeastern outskirts of Monrovia was expanded from 80 to 120 beds. That center will eventually be further expanded to take 300 patients.

EXCURSIONS Page A13SUNDAY, AUGUST 17, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE BUSTERTHOMPSON ChronicleOn July 16, my parents and I traveled a little over 3,000 miles from the United States to England for our traditional, biennial journey back to my birthplace of Eastbourne in Sussex County. For three weeks we would reunite with family, old friends and rediscover the refreshing scenery of Britains southeastern countryside. Our arrival at London Gatwick Airport was met with a surprisingly courteous customs officer, and a record two hours wait for a rental car. Sitting in the passenger seat, located on the left side of the car, I was careful not to criticize my fathers driving down the M23 motorway, as he slowly accustomed himself to driving on the left side of the road. Over a quarter of the world drives on the left side of the road, yet the reasons for why its still in effect spans back to the times of kings and knights. According to locals, when medieval travelers walked down a road, they made sure their dominant sword arm was between them and a passing stranger on their right. Jousters also fought by dueling on their opponents right side. The first of the numerous pubs we would indulge in was called The Tiger; the same pub my parents frequented when they lived overseas back in 1990. Inside, the pub was filled with relics of fox hunting, quotes from Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw and other writers, and dogs resting near water dishes after a long hike on the downs with their masters. A stuffed tigers head also overlooked the bar with an open mouth and bloodstained teeth. After a large lunch of various cheeses, breads and chutneys, we were bound for The Grand Hotel, a Victorian-style hotel constructed in 19th century, which overlooks the English Channel. Eastbourne has alwaysbeen our home away from home. For as long as I could remember our routine summer trips, this ever-growing town of over 100,000 people has always alluded my appreciation until now. It was founded and developed in 1800 by landowner William Cavendish, also known as the Duke of Devonshire. With a Napoleonic era fort on the seafront, a 1,000-foot pier, and modern buildings, Eastbourne truly represents a part of England that has transitioned well with the times. Eastbourne was one of many defenses along the south coast to protect against invaders, including Napoleon Bonapartes armada and Adolf Hitlers Third Reich. During the early 1940s, the town was the unfortunate target of leftover bombs from the Luftwaffe returning home from their missions in London and Coventry. Bomb craters could still be seen at Beachy Head, located a little west of Eastbourne. Even the hotel we stayed at was the base of operations for the Royal Air Force (RAF) during wartime. We didnt spend all our time in the almost isolated Eastbourne. For one day, we ventured by train to London. London rivals only New York in being the most compacted and most chaotic city to exist. Just like the yellow taxis flooding the streets of Manhattan, black, beetle-like taxis squeeze through alleyways, in between double-decker buses and the ever-daring cyclists. The city was infinite. One day could not come close to allowing the experience of even a fraction of the everlasting London. I accompanied my parents to a restaurant called Simpsons on the Strand. Beginning as a prominent and luxurious chess club, Simpsons hosted some of the most intense chess matches in history, including a nation match between England and France: the oldest rivals known to man. Carts holding half a cow were being wheeled in between tables, as carvers, with surgical precision, sculpted and excavated the most perfect slice of meat in town. As a young man, I never take a good slice of meat for granted. My emotional tie to England, specifically Eastbourne, was always questioned by me. Ive lived in the United States since the early 1990s, more than any other country I resided in. The U.S. is my home, but every time I return to my birthplace, I feel like Ive never left. As the weeks passed, I began to entrench myself more and more in Eastbourne, like a British Tommy gazing over the Channel behind his machine gun. Eastbourne became an equal to Citrus County in regard to the affect it had on my history. I was distraught when the Eastbourne pier caught fire on July 30. For hours, over 85 firefighters tackled the blaze as it consumed two-thirds of the 140-year-old structure. Shop owners watched from the beach as their uninsured stores were being burnt down. After a million (a little over $3 million) pledge from PM David Cameron, and over a thousand pounds in donations, the pier is expected to be repaired next year. Our three-week trip of nostalgia and reunion seemed like any other family get together: hellos, laughter, arguments, eating, copious amounts of drinking and tearful goodbyes. I saw members of my family I havent seen in years, the hospital I was born in 22 years ago and a town thats changing constantly. Although I never fully considered myself a British citizen, even with the passport, I will always treasure the privilege of having the best of both worlds coursing through my veins.

A14SUNDAY, AUGUST17, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: My husband and I used to be close to my mother-in-law. We took trips together and enjoyed one anothers company. But since our oldest child was born, things have changed. Even though she has an open invitation, Mom rarely comes around. Mom says because we wont let her babysit her grandchildren, she has no interest in seeing any of us. Annie, we have used babysitters maybe twice in the past six years. We have told her we would love to spend time with her as a family, and she says that will never happen. When my husband tries speaking to her in person, she gets angry. A few years ago, she was constantly buying expensive toys for our oldest child. We kindly asked that she stop, except for birthdays and Christmas. This upset her, and as a result, none of us gets any cards or gifts for anything, even though we continue to buy presents for her. A few years ago, we borrowed money from Mom for some home repairs and have been paying her back monthly, according to the terms. Shes never cashed one of our checks. We dont know why or whether we should just give her a cashiers check for the remainder and be done with it. Mom refuses to come to our house and will only meet us in a restaurant, where she seems pleasant. Then she says shes going to the bathroom, and we see her walking out the front door without saying goodbye. We are baffled and not sure what to tell our children, who are starting to notice. My husband says this is how she has always been, shutting him out whenever he wanted to get close. His father died when he was a child, and he feels like an orphan. Frustrated and Hurt Dear Frustrated: Your mother-in-law needs to control your lives. The more she keeps you wondering about her next step the more control she has.

Veterans share with students their firsthand military experiences and travels while serving in uniform around the world in peace and war. The model Veterans in the Classroom program was recognized in 2008 with a Florida Education Foundation award.

Page A16SUNDAY, AUGUST 17, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE VETERANS C.J. RISAK CorrespondentRichard Grier missed his flight. It was a fortunate turn of events for him.A sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps, Grier was then on what he calls a routine mission, although few missions while stationed 60 miles outside of Da Nang, Vietnam in 1968 could be referred to as routine. As an RPS (registered publications system) clerk, one of Griers responsibilities was maintaining the cryptology gear and issuing the key lists, used to decipher coded messages, to the marine units stationed in the area. Grier was on one of those monthly missions when he was delayed. It was the closest call I had, or the most guilty feeling I had, Grier said. A New Jersey native, Grier now lives in Homosassa. I was up in Dong Ha with some gear to deliver, and I wanted to deliver this gear and get my butt back to my outfit, he said. But there was a delay; these guys were handling hundreds of thousands of messages a month. I had a twoor three-hour delay just to have this lieutenant come out and sign for this stuff. I was getting aggravated, I was getting annoyed; you know, just come out and get this stuff. Anyway, he finally comes out and signs for it, and I get a ride back to the airstrip, and I see this big helicopter taking off. I tell them Im here for my flight and this guy says, Sorry, Sarge, youre late. Youll have to spend the night. I was real happy about that. So I spent most of the night in a bunker, dodging rockets. The next morning I catch another helicopter back to Da Nang and my base. I walk in and this guy says Grier, what are you doing here? You better check with the first sergeant, theyre starting to inventory your gear. You were supposed to be on that helicopter that went down last night. It took two weeks to get a recon patrol in there where the chopper went down. Im thinking, I was pissed off at this lieutenant because he wouldnt come out and sign for this stuff so I could get my flight. Unknowingly, he saved my life. Grier joined the Marine Corps Reserve his senior year in high school and then, knowing that sooner or later he would be drafted, he joined the Marines shortly after graduation in 1955. Re-enlisting a couple of times, he would stay in the Corps until 1977. During his tenure in the service, he would be stationed in Japan and in Okinawa, with a couple of tours in Vietnam. In fact, when a large segment of the U.S. population was viewing Vietnam with distaste, Grier was trying to get sent back there. When youre in the military, its what you train for, its what you do, he said. After retiring from the Marines, Grier became a corrections officer in New Jersey, eventually rising to the rank of captain. He remained with that department for 25 years. And although he had several close calls during firefights in Vietnam, Grier said his memories of the time he spent in the Marines would always be fond ones. It played a good role in my life, Grier said. It gave me a sense of responsibility. Marine veteran Master Sgt. Richard Grier shows off the gift from his children on his 65th birthday. Grier served from 1954 to 1977, including two tours and a month in Vietnam. STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleMarine veteran Master Sgt. Richard Grier recounts a close call when delivering some equipment and paperwork to a northern outpost in Vietnam. The helicopter that was to take him back to base left without him, but it never made it back. I never found out if it was mechanical failure or if it was shot down, but he says that, although he feels bad about the 41 Marines who died, he was certainly glad he got held up at the outpost. Missed helicopter proves lucky for Marine Name: Richard Grier Rank: Master sergeant (E8) Branch: U.S. Marine Corps Dates served: 1955-77 Locations: Parris Island, S.C.; New River, Ga.; Camp Pendleton, Calif.; Okinawa; Tokyo, Japan; Camp Fuji, Japan; Da Nang, Vietnam; Newark, N.J.

KRISTI EATON Associated PressSANTORINI, Greece Whitewashed houses stacked like sugar cubes on the cliffs. Colorful sunsets and black-sand beaches. Donkeys, windmills and a local winemaking tradition that goes back to ancient times. These are some of the things that stood out on a visit to the Cyclades, a Greek island chain in the Aegean Sea. Little wonder the place draws gaggles of visitors enough to make even crowd-loving extroverts long for a peaceful island paradise. Oh, wait thats why we were there. And thats why, whenever we could, we avoided busy town centers in favor of lying in the sun with a lazy glass of wine. First stop was the island of Mykonos. My boyfriend and I arrived by ferry from Athens, then took a bus to the islands center of activity, the town of Mykonos, also known as Chora. Its a busy place: long lines, picture-taking galore and overpriced trinkets bulging from store shelves. I was glad wed opted to stay in another village, Ornos, about 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) away, in a hotel five minutes from the beach and a handful of restaurants. There we soaked up the sun by the sea and by the pool, drank wine and met some British travelers who also treasured the calm and quiet. Early morning turned out to be a relatively tranquil time to see Chora even if the walk there from Ornos meant dodging cars on the sometimes-minuscule shoulder of the road. We spotted a donkey on the way, and in town, with the few other tourists there that early, we admired large windmills on hilltops that are among the islands most photographed and visited features. Windmill construction on the island dates to the 16th century. Then it was off to the winding roads of the Little Venice neighborhood to get lost amid the whitewashed buildings with their colorful balconies. Going early also offered a chance to see a bit of local life behind-the-scenes: shopkeepers mopping up concrete slabs outside their storefronts and arranging their merchandise before the busy day began. We also stopped by to see the ancient urns and memorial statues at the Archaeological Museum. Mykonos is known for its nightlife, and we had every intention of experiencing it at least once. But staying in laidback Ornos with a glass of wine at a restaurant each night proved too appealing. Next we visited the island of Santorini. Our hotel was in the village of Perissa, known for its black-sand beach but far less crowded than we expected. One morning, we got a cliff-top view of the island after a hike up Mesa Vouno mountain to Ancient Thira, the site of an excavated city dating to the ninth century B.C. Later on, we decided for once to brave the crowds and visit the town of Oia, known for its dramatic sunsets. The town is located on steep cliffs offering a panoramic view of the Santorinis caldera, a volcanic crater thats partly under the sea. We headed to find a good vantage point with thousands of other visitors eager to watch the sun dip down to the horizon. A sliver of rail space at a parking lot was as good as we could get. But it didnt matter. The sunset was so glorious, I didnt mind the crowds. If You Go... CYCLADES: Greek island chain in the Aegean Sea. Visit www. visitgreece.gr/en/greek_ islands/cyclades.

DANICA KIRKA Associated PressLONDON A blood-red sea of ceramic poppies is spilling from the Tower of London to commemorate British and Commonwealth soldiers killed in World War I on the 100th anniversary of its start. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined Prince Harry on Tuesday to symbolically plant poppies in the dry moat surrounding the Tower to honor the military dead. The installation, called Blood Swept Lands And Seas Of Red, is at the moment made up of 120,000 ceramic poppies, a carpet of crimson. The red tide will widen in the coming months until there are 888,246 poppies one for each of the British and Commonwealth soldiers killed in the war. The project is meant to convey an army not as a faceless machine but as individuals, unique and special in their own right. Im literally trying to represent people because a number is a number, but if you see it all like this it is a visual idea of how many people were there, said its creator, Paul Cummins. Poppies became a symbol of war dead after the crimson flowers sprang up across the battlefields of Belgium where hundreds of thousands of soldiers died in World War I. The poem In Flanders Fields, written by a Canadian doctor who ran a field hospital during the war, begins with the famous line, In Flanders fields, the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row. Poppies were later adopted as a symbol of remembrance and are often sold on holidays honoring veterans to benefit soldiers charities. The installation will continue through Nov. 11, the day World War I ended in 1918. Each of the poppies in the Tower of London moat took three days to make. They will later be sold for 25 pounds ($42) each, and sent to the buyers after Armistice ceremonies in November. The money will go to British charities such as the Royal Legion and Help for Heroes, which serve British veterans. Some 8,000 volunteers will be placing the ceramic flowers that are attached to sticks and placed in the ground. One of them was 72-year-old Joan ClaytonJones, whose great-uncle was killed, as was her husbands grandfather. I have a photograph of my great-uncle in my bag today, she said.

TheDolphinstook advantage of a mistake by Bucs rookie Mike Evans. Evans, the Bucs firstround pick from Texas A&M, caught a short pass from Mike Glennon in the second quarter and after breaking a tackle, sprinted down the sideline toward a 42-yard touchdown which could have given the Bucs a 14-3 lead. After a review of the original touchdown call, however, it was ruled that Miami cornerback Brent Grimes had punched the ball out of Evans hands just before Evans crossed the goal line. The fumble went through the end zone, giving the Dolphins(1-1) the ball. Moore drove theDolphins71 yards to a touchdown in the final 1:41 of the first half, completing 6 of 8 passes including a 9-yard touchdown pass to Rishard Matthews that gave Miami a 10-7 lead over the Bucs (0-2) with 8 seconds left in the half. Packers 21, Rams 7ST. LOUIS Aaron Rodgers and Sam Bradford each threw a touchdown pass in their preseason debuts and played into the second quarter in the Green Bay Packers 21-7 victory over the St. Louis Rams. Michael Sam played in the second half and got his first sack of the preseason, dropping Matt Flynn for a 10-yard loss in the fourth quarter to force a 49-yard field goal by Mason Crosby. Sam had a tackle earlier in that series. Rodgers was 11 for 13 for 128 yards and a 3-yard score to Randall Cobb in a no-huddle offense on the opening series. Bradford showed plenty of mobility in his first action since season-ending left knee surgery last November. He was 9 for 12 for 101 yards and an 11-yard touchdown pass to Lance Kendricks. Eddie Lacy had five carries for 25 yards on the Packers 12play, 86-yard drive to start the game.Jets 25, Bengals 17CINCINNATI Andy Dalton completed all eight of his passes and led the Bengals to a pair of touchdowns and a field goal during three impressive series before the New York Jets reserves rallied for a 25-17 preseason victory. It was Daltons first game at Paul Brown Stadium since his turnover-filled 27-10 loss to San Diego in the opening round of the playoffs. Also, his first home game since he signed a six-year contract extension. He went 8 for 8 for 144 yards, one touchdown and a perfect passer rating of 158.3. The Bengals (0-2) rolled up 173 yards while he was in the game. Associated PressMiami Dolphins defensive tackle Randy Starks, right, sacks Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon Saturday during the second quarter of a preseason game in Tampa. Kelly: No change needed in how Notre Dame recruits Associated PressSOUTH BEND, Ind. Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly on Saturday dismissed talk that he needs to do a better job of recruiting players who are better students to avoid the academic problems that have plagued the football program for the past 15 months. I think weve brought in the right young men, he said. I think we have to continue to do a better job educating them. We have to do a better job of providing the resources. The news conference was the first time Kelly talked to the media since the university announced a day earlier that starting cornerback KeiVarae Russell, leading returning receiver DaVaris Daniels, defensive end Ishaq Williams and backup linebacker Kendall Moore were being withheld from practices and games until the university completes an investigation into whether papers and homework they turned in were completed by others. Kelly said none one involved in the investigation has asked to talk to him or his staff. He cautioned against assuming the players are guilty, saying the investigation is ongoing. Kelly said its his job as head coach to create an environment where players know they cant cut corners. If you let your players do whatever they want and they feel like theyre not accountable, then I dont think you should be a head coach, he said. I think if you create an environment and you lay out the expectations of your program and their not met, then they should be held accountable. Look, this is never a onesided issue. We have to internally look at providing our student-athletes all of the resources necessary that, if in fact if they took shortcuts, that they dont. We have to look hard at that, he said. Rays get a taste of Captain Clutch in loss Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Derek Jeter hit a tiebreaking single in the ninth inning and the New York Yankees ended a five-game skid with a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday. Brett Gardner opened the ninth with an infield single off Jake McGee (3-1) and advanced to second on a throwing error by second baseman Logan Forsythe. After failing to lay down a sacrifice bunt, Jeter put New York ahead with a single to right-center on a 2-2 pitch. Dellin Betances (5-0) worked a perfect eighth before David Robertson got the final three outs for his 32nd save. Rookie Shane Greene allowed two runs, seven hits and struck out a career-high 10 in six-plus innings. The Yankees took a lead in the second when Chase Headley drew a two-out walk on a full-count pitch and Martin Prado homered on an 0-2 offering from Drew Smyly, making his first home start since being acquired in a trade that sent ace David Price to Detroit on July 31.

Associated PressATLANTA Chris Johnson drove in two runs with three hits, Julio Teheran threw six strong innings and the Atlanta Braves edged the suddenly struggling OaklandAthletics4-3 on Saturday night. The As, who began the day with the best record in the majors, matched their worst skid of the season by losing four in a row. Theyve dropped six of seven overall. Teheran (11-9) gave up two runs on four hits and three walks. The Braves had lost 12 of 15 before winning the first two games of the series. Craig Kimbrel got his 36th save in 40 chances. Sonny Gray (12-7) allowed four runs in 5 1/3 innings in his fourth straight defeat. There was a brief delay in the bottom of the sixth when a nude man ran onto the field. He was quickly tackled by security officers and taken off the field. AMERICAN LEAGUE Tigers 4, Mariners 2DETROIT David Price pitched eight innings of one-run ball, and the Detroit Tigers snapped Seattles fivegame winning streak with a 4-2 victory over Felix Hernandez and the Mariners. Price allowed three hits, struck out seven and walked three in his first game at Comerica Park since he was acquired in a trade with Tampa Bay last month. Joe Nathan worked the ninth for his 25th save, yielding Endy Chavezs RBI single. It was Nathans first appearance since making a profane gesture at Tigers fans on Wednesday, and he received a mixture of cheers and boos when he was introduced. Hernandez was hit on the leg by a hard ground ball in the fourth. He worked the fifth before departing after 92 pitches.Twins 4, Royals 1MINNEAPOLIS Phil Hughes threw seven sharp innings, Kurt Suzuki hit his third homer of the season and the Minnesota Twins beat first-place Kansas City 4-1 to snap the Royals three-game winning streak. Hughes (13-8) allowed one run, seven hits and struck out six to outlast hard-throwing rookie Yordano Ventura (9-9), who threw six innings of one-hit ball before the Twins broke through in the seventh. With runners on second and third, Ventura threw a 99-mph fastball that shattered Danny Santanas bat but Santana reached base when Billy Butler tried to throw out Suzuki at home. Catcher Salvador Perezs tag was late, allowing the Twins to tie it. Brian Dozier followed with his 25th double of the season to score pinchrunner Eduardo Escobar and put the Twins ahead for good.BlueJays6, White Sox 3CHICAGO Melky Cabreras tworun double in the seventh inning lifted the TorontoBlueJaysto a 6-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox. TheBlueJays, who snapped a four-game losing streak, scored three runs in the seventh to retake the lead after the White Sox tied it with three runs in the sixth. Avisail Garcia went 2 for 4 with a double for the White Sox in his first game since April 9 after recovering from shoulder surgery. Brett Cecil (1-3) got two outs both by strikeout to earn the win. Casey Janssen worked one inning to earn his 19th save in 22 opportunities. Former White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle allowed three runs in 5 2/3 innings in his first start as a Chicago visitor and third game against his former team. He has one victory in his last 13 starts. RedSox10 Astros 7BOSTON David Ortiz hit a pair of two-run homers, including his 400th in aRedSoxuniform, and drove in a career high-tying six runs to power Boston past the Houston Astros 10-7. Big Papi joined Hall of Famers Ted Williams and Carl Yastrzemski as the only players to hit 400 homers while playing with theRedSox. Ortiz did it with his shot into the first row of the center-field seats in the third inning. Ortiz hooked his other around the Pesky Pole in right in the fifth. He has 459 home runs in his career, which started with Minnesota. Ortiz added a two-run double in the eighth. He left to a standing ovation for a pinch-runner, tipping his helmet as the crowd gave him a curtain call. Williams hit 521 homers and Yaz had 452. Both spent their entire careers with theRedSox. NATIONAL LEAGUE Giants 6, Phillies 5SAN FRANCISCO Gregor Blanco hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the eighth inning, helping the San Francisco Giants rally for a 6-5 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. Michael Morse had two doubles and a triple as San Francisco won for the second time in three games following a five-game skid. Blanco went 2 for 2 with two RBIs.

Sergio Romo got the final two outs for his 23rd save.Marlins 2, Diamondbacks 1MIAMI Henderson Alvarez made a successful return to the mound after missing two starts, pitching seven strong innings and leading the Miami Marlins to a 2-1 win over the sloppy Arizona Diamondbacks. Alvarez (9-5) allowed one run and five hits. He struck out six after missing time with right shoulder inflammation. He lowered his home ERA to a National League-best 1.46 among qualifiers. Steve Cishek pitched the ninth for his 31st save in 34 opportunities. The Diamondbacks made five errors, their most since recording six on July 3, 2010, against the Dodgers. Wade Miley (7-9) struck out nine in seven innings for Arizona. He allowed two runs one earned and four hits.Nationals 4, Pirates 3WASHINGTON Wilson Ramos ground-rule double drove in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning, after Adam LaRoches two-run homer tied it in the eighth, and the Washington Nationals came back to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3. Ramos hit off Justin Wilson (3-3) sailed over right fielder Gregory Polancos head and bounced into the home bullpen, scoring Bryce Harper from second base. Harper led off the ninth by drawing a walk one pitch after he initially thought hed earned a free pass and advanced on a wild pitch. Matt Thornton (1-0) earned the win with a 1-2-3 ninth, getting a pair of strikeouts on 96 mph fastballs. Pittsburgh led 3-0 entering the eighth, but reliever Tony Watson gave that away on Kevin Frandsens RBI single and LaRoches 18th homer.Mets7, Cubs 3NEW YORK Wilmer Flores provided a spark with his bat and glove, leading Jonathon Niese and the New YorkMetsto a 7-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Juan Lagares drove in two runs and reliever Vic Black escaped a major jam unscathed to keep New York in control after Niese (7-8) exited. Star third baseman David Wright also was removed in the seventh, one inning after he was hit in the upper back by an 88 mph fastball from Dan Straily. TheMets, outhit 7-4, said Wright was lifted with a sore left shoulder. The 23-year-old Flores, a touted hitting prospect trying to show he can play an adequate shortstop in the majors, followed Lagares RBI double with a two-run single in the second.

Kelly said he doesnt have any more information about the investigation than what the university announced at the news conference Friday, saying as a coach he will be on the outside looking in. He said his reaction to the news was shock and disappointment. But Kelly said hes proud that Notre Dame has high standards, saying its one of the reason he accepted the job. We dont look the other way, he said. The players were informed Friday about the investigation and Kelly said he hasnt talked with them since. The Irish, who open the season against Rice on Aug. 30, have faced other academic problems. Starting quarterback Everett Golson missed last season because of academic impropriety and Daniels sat out the spring semester. Kelly described them as good kids who made bad decisions. If the players arent allowed to return this season as a result of the investigation, it will be difficult to overcome, Kelly said. As players, you dont replace KeiVarae Russell. Hes one of the best corners weve had here in some time. But well find a way, he said. You dont replace a guy like that. Replacing Daniels also will be a challenge, but Kelly said the Irish have depth at receiver. Were going to have to count on other players to step up and do the job for us, he said. Kelly said hes not worried about Notre Dame possibly having to vacate some past victories, including possibly from the 2012 season when the Irish went 12-1 and their lone loss was to Alabama in the national title game. He said it wouldnt change his view of that season. Ive never really counted my victories, he said. Its not something I really spend much time thinking about. Its been a tumultuous time at Notre Dame since Kelly arrived following the 2009 season, with a student manager killed when the scissor lift he was on toppled in high winds in 2010, several high-profile players being arrested and the academic troubles. Kelly was asked whether those issues reflected on his leadership. This isnt the time to have a debate on what my leadership or lack thereof is. My focus is on my football team and getting this team ready. Theres a time and place for that. People have their opinions and certainly theyre entitled to them. Im going to focus on this football team and getting it ready for two weeks for Rice. NOTRE DAMEContinued from Page B1 Smyly gave up two runs and four hits over seven innings. Price is scheduled to pitch against Tampa Bay for the first time Thursday in the finale of a three-game series in Florida. After Yunel Escobar had a sixth-inning RBI single, Tampa Bay tied it at 2 on Ben Zobrists run-scoring grounder in the seventh. The Rays extended their clubrecord streak of allowing three runs or less to 12 consecutive games, but have gone just 7-5 over the stretch. Tampa Bay had become the fourth team ever in the majors to get back to .500 after being at least 18 games under the break-even point with a 5-0 victory Friday night over the Yankees that gave them a 61-61 record.TRAINERSS ROOMYankees: RHP Masahiro Tanaka (right elbow) threw 25 pitches during his first bullpen session since going on the DL July 9. C Brian McCann (concussion) might return Sunday. Rays: OF David DeJesus (left hand) went 0 for 1 with a walk in his first Gulf Coast League game.UP NEXTYankees RHP Hiroki Kuroda (7-8), 0-3 in his last four starts against Tampa Bay, and Rays RHP Jeremy Hellickson (1-1) are Sundays scheduled starters. RAYSContinued from Page B1 The Jets (2-0) got drubbed 49-9 in Cincinnati midway through last season Dalton threw a career-high five touchdown passes in that one. Their injury-depleted secondary made it easy for Dalton on Saturday night.Ravens 37, Cowboys 30ARLINGTON, Texas Deonte Thompson returned a kickoff 108 yards for a score after Dallas Tony Romo threw a touchdown pass in his first game since back surgery last season, and Joe Flacco led three scoring drives in Baltimores 37-30 preseason victory over the Cowboys on Saturday night. The Ravens (2-0) also got a 26-yard fumble return for a touchdown when Courtney Upshaw picked up a botched handoff from Romo and stayed on his feet while Romo tried to drag him down by his jersey. Romos final play was a 31-yard touchdown pass to Dez Bryant midway through the first quarter. Baltimore led 14-7 before Flacco took the field for the first time. He threw a 19-yard scoring pass to Torrey Smith for a 24-10 lead late in the first half. Dallas is 0-2.Steelers 19, Bills 16PITTSBURGH Ben Roethlisberger threw two touchdown passes in less than a half of work and the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Buffalo Bills 19-16. Roethlisberger hit Antonio Brown for a 76-yard score on Pittsburghs second play from scrimmage and found Markus Wheaton for a 16-yard strike to help the Steelers (1-1) won a preseason game for the first time in nearly two years. Roethlisberger finished 8 of 11 for 128 yards and the two scores. Shaun Suishams 20-yard field goal as time expired ended Pittsburghs five-game losing streak in exhibitions. EJ Manuel completed 17 of 27 passes for 148 yards and an interception while playing the entire first half for Buffalo (1-2), but the Bills starting offense failed to reach the end zone for the third straight game. Bills rookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins left early in the first quarter with a rib injury and did not return.Giants 27, Colts 26INDIANAPOLIS Ryan Nassib led the New York Giants to two touchdowns in the final four minutes, completing a huge fourth-quarter comeback with a 27-26 victory. New York trailed 26-0 early in the fourth, but the Colts couldnt hold on. Former Indy quarterback Curtis Painter finally got New York on the board with a 3-yard TD pass to Kellen Davis. Sixteen seconds later, Spencer Adkins recovered a Colts fumble in the end zone to make it 26-14. Michael Cox then scored on a 2-yard run with 3:59 to go, and Nassib hooked up with Corey Washington on a 6-yard TD pass with 55 seconds to go. Indy (0-2) had a chance to win it with Pat McAfees 64-yard field goal with 5 seconds left, but the kick went wide left. Andrew Luck was 12 of 18 for 89 yards. Eli Manning was 1 of 6 for seven yards for New York (3-0). NFLContinued from Page B1 Bills rookie Watkins leaves with rib injuryPITTSBURGH Buffalo Bills rookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins left Saturday nights game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first quarter due to a rib injury. Watkins, the fourth overall pick in the draft, walked off the field clutching his side during Buffalos initial drive of the game after Pittsburgh linebacker Ryan Shazier went over his back during a pass play. Watkins spent a few minutes on the sideline before being taken to the locker room for further evaluation. Watkins sparkled in Buffalos joint workouts with the Steelers during the week, routinely getting the better of whomever Pittsburgh lined up to cover him during drills.X-rays on Raiders QB Derek Carr negativeALAMEDA, Calif. Oakland Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr avoided a serious rib injury from a hard hit that knocked him out of an exhibition game against the Detroit Lions. Coach Dennis Allen said Saturday that X-rays on Carrs ribs were negative. Carr also suffered a concussion on the hard hit by Larry Webster on Friday night and must pass the league protocols before he is able to return to practice this week. Carr played well in his second pro game, completing 9 of 16 passes for 109 yards and a touchdown. He even got one series with the first-team offense, but Allen says Matt Schaub will get most of the time with the starters in the dress rehearsal game at Green Bay on Friday.Bears, Santonio Holmes agree to dealCHICAGO Former Super Bowl MVP wide receiver Santonio Holmes signed a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears on Saturday. A first-round draft pick by Pittsburgh in 2006, Holmes was the Super Bowl MVP in his third year. But he was traded to the New York Jets the following offseason after the Steelers tired of his legal troubles. The Jets released the 30-year-old Holmes in March after he had 23 catches the second-lowest total of his career for 456 yards in 11 games. He missed five games midway through the season with a hamstring injury. Holmes was limited to just four games in 2012 and was sidelined for several months after suffering a career-threatening foot injury.From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

Section CSUNDAY, AUGUST 17, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW We love to hate the people we elect to public office. Or at least, some of us do. This is the political season in Citrus County, and we are rushing toward the Aug. 26 primary elections that will help us decide the future direction of both our county and school governments. The Chronicleheld its annual political forum on Thursday evening and more than 500 citizens showed up to listen to the candidates discuss their positions on the issues. It was for the most part refreshing to hear an intelligent discussion. One of the refrains you heard time and again during the forum was from candidates who said if you dont like the direction government is going, then elect me and I will make changes. For the record, almost no one likes the direction government is going on the local, state or federal level. Ever. Most human beings me included are incredibly arrogant. Deep down we each believe we are smarter, betterlooking and more alert than the next guy. I admit that I sit and watch my favorite quarterback looking over the heads of those four 350-pound linemen charging at him and complain that he failed to throw the ball to the open receiver downfield. Somehow, in my arrogance, I believe I would have gotten the ball to the open man. In reality, if those linemen came charging at me, I would have sunk to the ground in a whimpering mess and most likely soiled myself. But sitting in the comfortable living room watching things on the big-screen TV, I cant understand why my quarterback didnt get the job done. The same is true in politics. We all sit back and criticize actions taken by those caught up in the moment. It is a good process to sit back and analyze what our With replay, its a lot easier to see that open man See WINDOW/ Page C3 If you are still waiting on the sidelines and thinking the primary election is not of any interest or consequence to you, then you are missing the boat. The excuses are myriad. You dont vote because you have no interest in politics, think your vote will not make a difference, are too busy, dont think the issues matter, find its too hard, dont know where or when or dont have enough information. Every one of these excuses can be argued and rebutted. The single notion is that by not voting you are, in essence, voting. You have given up your right to vote and let someone elses vote count. It doesnt matter to what party you belong; the turnout is abysmal for both Democrats and Republicans, and nonpartisan voters hardly show up at all. Studies show that early voting helps, but not all that much. Mail-in ballots dont help that much. Various tactics are employed to get the vote out, and yet the turnout has not been impressive, and in some cases has decreased. While its getting easier and easier to vote, turnout continues to decrease. Let us count the ways your vote matters: Politics relates to the actions and policies of a government, a group of people who control and make decisions for a country, state, etc. Your vote is for the people making decisions for you. One vote may seem like a drop in the ocean, but how many drops does it take to fill a bucket? Whose drop do you want in that bucket? Our lives are affected by many governmental issues from local property taxes to state sales taxes and federal income taxes (just a few of the issues that may matter to you). Early voting is being held at several locations in Citrus County: Central Ridge Library, Supervisor of Elections Meadowcrest Office, Homosassa Library or Inverness City Hall, and has been extended for nine days prior to Election Day, with extended hours from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. If No excuse not to exercise your right to vote See VOTE/ Page C3 League of Women VotersGUEST COLUMN DIDITANG Associated PressBEIJING After getting a glimpse of the endless cramming for Chinas grueling college entrance exams from the seniors in his high school, 16-year-old Zhang Kaisheng decided to take a different path. Like a growing number of Chinese teenagers, Zhang plans to enroll this fall in a private U.S. high school where he and his parents hope he will get a more well-rounded if far more expensive education. Tuition, room and board can cost around $40,000 three to four times more than an elite private school in China. I feel like the U.S. education fits me better and will allow me to do things I like to do, said Zhang, who loves playing basketball. Associated PressLisa Li, a high school student at the U.S. prep school Lawrence Academy in Groton, Mass., poses for a photo outside the Stephen Robert Campus Center on the Brown University Campus in Providence, Rhode Island. High schoolers want to escape the rat race in China, where students often study late into the night with little opportunity for extracurricular activities. They also believe studying in the U.S. will help them snag coveted spots at more prestigious American colleges. Li said she felt like a failure if she didnt get the top test score in her class in Beijing. Her academic work in the U.S. is also rigorous, but she says she doesnt feel the same kind of pressure, and is now encouraged to explore other interests, like music composition.IN AMERICA, AN ANSWERWith more than 333,000 of its students in U.S. colleges and graduate schools, China has long been the top feeder of international students in America. Now Chinese high school students are following suit in astonishing fashion: Last year U.S. schools welcomed 50 times more of them than they did just eight years earlier. The high schoolers want to escape the rat race at home, where students often study late into the night with little opportunity for extracurricular activities. They also believe studying in the U.S. will help them snag coveted spots at prestigious American colleges. The competition has grown fiercer, and there has been pressure to go to U.S. high schools to gain an edge, said Xu Yi, who runs a tutoring and consulting agency for Chinese students called Focus Education. Though international surveys have shown that Chinese students perform well ahead of their American peers in subjects such as math and reading, top-level U.S. schools remain highly regarded among educated Chinese for developing critical thinking and communication skills. China boasts solid elementary and secondary education, especially in math, but it lacks innovation, said Wang Huiyao, president of Beijing-based Center for China and Globalization.

Page C2SUNDAY, AUGUST 17, 2014 Barriers eyesores and unsafeI hesitated to write this, but now that the Sound Off of Friday, Aug. 1, has brought this to light, I must speak up. The barriers at city hall in Inverness are not only an eyesore. First, has anybody on the city council realized you just blocked off a driveway to a public building? Second, in case of fire or a medical emergency, there is only one way in or out. And Pine Street from Main Street is one way in front of Subway. No way back to Main Street. You have to go around the block. Third, the city is telling only half the truth. Big trucks do cut through the parking lot, but its at 5 a.m. to service downtown merchants. Lastly, if I may offer a logical solution: Take down those ugly barriers and place two signs at each entrance saying No through traffic. Because at one time there was a sheriffs sub station at city hall, having a sheriffs car backed into a parking space would not be out of place. When they cut through, write them up. In a small town like this, word will get out fast. And if you want to put a double whammy on them, place a second sign saying, Pedestrian crossing, 2 mph, strictly enforced. Big, black pipe barriers blocking off a driveway to city hall are embarrassing and not a welcome picture in front of a city hall.Charles Shinsky Inverness Judging by the way he holds his cards so close to his vest, President Obama must be an awfully good poker player. Here we are halfway through his second term, and few observers can claim to know with any precision exactly what he thinks about critical matters of war and peace. Or what he might do if push came to shove, an eventuality he appears entirely determined to avoid. Obama often appears disdainful of the theatrical aspects of the presidency. He avoids playing dress-up. No aircraft carrier landings or make-believe ranching for him. Pretty much all the time, the president carries himself as the middleaged husband, father, former law professor and professional politician that he is. He avoids confrontation whenever possible. Even when he speaks out on issues of critical national importance, Obama can sound kind of dorky. Witness last weeks qualified endorsement of CIA Director John Brennan. Brennan had been forced to apologize to Congress because (apparently unknown to him) agents spied on Senate Intelligence Committee staffers investigating what the Bush administration euphemistically called enhanced interrogation. Even before I came into office, Obama said, I was very clear that in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, we did some things that were wrong. We did a whole lot of things that were right, but we tortured some folks. We did some things that were contrary to our values. We tortured folks? Mr. President, you invite folks to picnics or welcome them to Jimmy Buffett shows. You torture terrorist suspects, prisoners, or captives. Calling them folks makes it sound like no big deal. Which may be exactly what Obama intended. Because the other folks he talked about were the CIA agents who did the waterboarding. Its important for us not to feel too sanctimonious in retrospect about the tough job that those folks had, the president said. A lot of those folks were working hard under enormous pressure and are real patriots, but having said all that, we did some things that were wrong. Just not wrong enough to get too upset about. Even Obamas closest aides, it appears, often cant tell what hes thinking. According to David Remnicks vivid New Yorker account of Vladimir Putins metastasizingauthoritarianism, former U.S. ambassador Michael McFaul still cant figure out if the presidents a realist or an internationalist in foreign policy. That is, should the United States favor national selfinterest or promote democratic values around the world? Both, basically. Obama gives ringing speeches endorsing democracy, but in practice acts with cool calculation. McFaul himself made a show of meeting publicly with anti-Putin activists. He lasted only two years in Moscow. Another example: A while back, the president explained to CBS This Morning why arming moderates in Syrias civil war was a bad idea. When you get farmers, dentists and folks who have never fought before going up against a ruthless opposition in Assad, he said, the notion that they were in a position to suddenly overturn not only Assad but also ruthless, highly trained jihadists if we just sent a few arms is a fantasy. Folks again. But almost cynical this time. Then soon afterward Obama asked Congress for $500 million to arm and train appropriately vetted Syrian rebels. So was the president craftily calling Republicans bluff, as hed done by asking Congress permission to bomb Bashar alAssads regime in 2013? Permission Obama didnt really want and knew he couldnt get, given public resistance to yet another Middle Eastern war. If so, why repeat the gesture? Could Obama be hearing footsteps, as they say in the NFL? That is, listening to the rising chorus from New York Timescolumnist Maureen Dowd to Darth Cheney that wants a manly, decisive president whos more enthusiastic about starting wars? Indeed, before that drunken cast of Dostoyevsky characters under Putins sponsorship shot down a Malaysian passenger jet in eastern Ukraine, murdering 298 innocent civilians, it had become common to hear GOP partisans wish we had a president more like the virile Russian. Putin decides what he wants to do and does it in half a day, Rudy Giuliani declared. He makes a decision and executes it quickly and everybody reacts. Thats what you call a real leader. Dowd even wrote a snarky column about Obama the girlyman based on a remark hed made about hitting singles and doubles in foreign policy instead of more masculine (to Dowd) three-run home runs. She appeared not to grasp the metaphor: Like baseball, foreign policy requires patience. Nobody can hit three-run bombs unless somebody gets on base. The problem, of course, is that foreign policy isnt poker, football or baseball, and it has a definite theatrical aspect whether Professor Obama likes it or not. Perceptions of character have a way of becoming reality; the perception of weakness can become the most dangerous reality of all.Arkansas Times columnist Gene Lyons is a National Magazine Award winner.

Of those three, one, Denise Dymond Lyn, has the qualifications, track record of community service and theChroniclesnod as the best candidate to be the next Fifth Judicial Circuit Judge. Kautz, of Belleview, is taking a low-key approach to campaigning, saying the demands of the job limit time to stump. Also, she is not seeking or accepting campaign contributions, preferring instead to see what happens in the Aug. 26 primary election. The two top vote-getters in the primary will advance to the Nov. 4 general election unless one of the four receives 50 percent, plus one, of the vote in the primary. Ive already put in the work. As a judge, I dont have time to campaign, said Kautz, who threw her hat in the ring after seeing others were running for the seat. Unfortunately, between a sense of indifference toward getting re-elected and turmoil during her time on the bench, the voters would be better served by electing a candidate with a clean slate and greater passion. The turmoil, in short, includes: Kautz signing a stipulation before the Judicial Qualifications Commission that resulted from an investigation of allegations made against her. Those complaints, loosely, related to expressing frustration and anger in the course of her duties; and, issuing rulings where it appeared she wasnt clear on the law or chose not to apply it. The JQCs findings now rest with the state Supreme Court, which will weigh the appropriateness of a reprimand. In addition, in 2012, Kautz made an appearance in court on her sisters behalf, violating the Code of Judicial Conduct. The challengers for the five-county circuit which includes Citrus, Hernando, Lake, Marion and Sumter are Dymond Lyn of Inverness, Mary Hatcher of Bushnell and Bo Samargya of Ocala. While Mary Hatchers professional background appears sufficient to make her a contender, her reluctance to articulate approaches toward enhancing efficiencies, saving money, or considering when there are mitigating circumstances that allow for sentencing options, make the other candidates much more appealing. While discussing the particulars of specific cases is not allowed, Mary Hatcher believes Canon 7 of the Code of Judicial Conduct prevents her from commenting on the business of being a judge and her philosophy toward the application of the law. Given that her challengers and others who have run for, and been elected to judgeships disagree, is reason for voters to narrow their considerations to Lyn and Samargya. Dymond Lyn and Samargya are both suited to serve as judge professionally and from a personal disposition standpoint. After rehashing interviews with the candidates, a majority ofChronicleeditorial board members agreed Dymond Lyn deserves the endorsement. Both are articulate and have well-rounded legal backgrounds. Dymond Lyn, however, has a wealth of experience in family law, which is whats most needed in this position, whichis based in Citrus County. Both know that the job is to apply the law fairly, but that if presented with mitigating factors such as mental health issues there are instances in which a judge can deviate from sentencing guidelines. Samargya, who has a strong background in criminal law, sees the potential for efficiencies and cost savings in the scheduling of hearings. Simple cases, he said, could be scheduled on a next-day basis. He believes the courtroom at the county jail in Lecanto could be used for cases involving existing inmates, rather than transporting them to court in Inverness. And, Samargya believes a judge should weigh sentencing options for juveniles if theres a probability alternative sentencing could put them on a positive track which, in the long run would save taxpayers money, he said. Dymond Lyn sees duplication of services as an area to target for cost savings. Streamlining proceedings would benefit the budgets of both those appearing in court and the judicial system itself, she said. Proceedings relating to families should be coordinated so all concerned are scheduled together, she added. Dymond Lyn believes all parties in a case deserve ample opportunity to present their evidence and she feels all should be treated with respect which is something, she said, thats been lacking. While the public and the judicial system would be well served by either Dymond Lyn or Samargya, its the depth of experience in family law that tips the scales toward Dymond Lyn in this race.

But its also important to remember that Monday-morning quarterbacking is a lot easier than the real thing. The real measure of an effective leader is whether they can make decisions in the heat of the moment and get most of them right. No one gets them all right. We can only hope they get most of them right. Once we elect folks to public office, there is a group of citizens who immediately believe that all of those elected become corrupt and spend their time stuffing their pockets with cash. Some politicians do, but most dont. And all of them are human, so they all make mistakes. Most of us can get it right when we watch the instant replay. Only a very few are willing to get on the football field or on the election ballot to publicly take the risk of doing things in real time. We can all show our appreciation by participating in the Aug. 26 primary. And on Aug. 27, we can get back to watching the game and yelling our loudest about the open receiver downfield.Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle. Email him at gmulligan@ chronicleonline.com. this is still not an option, you can request an absentee ballot. In 2012, there were several amendments on the ballot that were so complex in language that even those proficient in legalese would have found them hard to decipher. Fortunately there were resources available to clarify what a yes or no vote would mean, including the League of Women Voters Florida guide. Again this year, the Voter Guide to the General Election will be available in early September to help you make your decisions. While the League does not support or oppose any candidate, we do request that each candidate provide a biographical and political statement for inclusion in the Voter Guide. The League of Women Voters wants every voter to be an informed voter. The Leagues Voter Guides provide information that has been gathered to provide the voter with an unbiased, nonpartisan source of information on the candidates and the amendments on the ballot. By the time this is printed, it will be too late to register to vote in the local primary, but the upcoming election in November is still within your reach. You can still register to vote in that. Your right to vote is the single most important part of our democracy. The blood, sweat and tears that the patriots of this nation have shed for this right should be enough to convince you to get out to vote. Honor them by exercising your right. If you need help in finding your polling place for the primary Election Day, Aug. 26, or the general Election Day, Nov. 4, contact the Supervisor of Elections Office at votecitrus.com. The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government and works to increase understanding of major public policy issues through education and advocacy.

Chinese students may be able to memorize formulas, but they lack soft skills such as people skills and the ability to communicate with global language and culture. Young Chinese with U.S. college degrees usually can expect broader career prospects, as China has become increasingly globally minded, with more opportunities for foreigneducated youth. Last fall, the U.S. issued 31,889 F-1 student visas to Chinese youth planning to attend American high schools, up from just 639 in 2005. China also has overtaken South Korea as the No. 1 origin country of students to U.S. high schools, with its elite families leading the way as their children are vying for spots in prestigious U.S. preparatory schools. Chinas rising financial might is fueling the rise. Chinese families did not have the choices in the past, and they did not have the financial means, but with the rise of the middle class, Chinese families now can scour worldwide for schools, Wang said. Chinese parents see the hefty cost of private U.S. high schools as a worthy investment. If he can develop a multitude of skills and be a well-rounded person, it would be money well spent, said Zhang Kaishengs mother, Wang Lihong, the president of a state bank branch in Beijing. For many students, the chance to study in the U.S. opens up new opportunities. Riley Peng, the daughter of a successful entrepreneur, disliked the emphasis on rote memorization in China, and now is engaged in a variety of classes and extracurricular activities at Choate Rosemary Hall in Wallingford, Connecticut, including running on the cross-country team. There are many things I now get to experiment with, she said. Pengs friend Lisa Li, who attends Lawrence Academy in Groton, Massachusetts, said she felt like a failure if she didnt get the top test score in her class in Beijing. Her academic work in the U.S. is also rigorous, but she says she doesnt feel the same kind of pressure, and is now encouraged to explore other interests like music composition. It is so worth it, although it is highly challenging, Li said. U.S. prep schools are demanding intellectually, but they also emphasize creativity. It has helped me find my direction turning the impossible into possibilities. Her mother, Jin Min, is pleased. Now she has creativity, instead of being a copying machine of knowledge, or an encyclopedia, she said. It helps that teens from affluent Chinese families are often well versed in English and American culture. Chinese students usually are required to demonstrate English proficiency before attending American high schools, although some U.S. schools offer remedial courses. In any case, its a big adjustment to study far from home. Experts warn parents to think twice before sending their children abroad and urge them to find proper guardianship or choose reputable boarding schools. Keith Hernandez, vice president of the consulting company Duewest Education, also cautions that an American high school education might not help Chinese students get into the top U.S. universities. Sometimes, too much U.S. experience could hurt an applicants chances if admissions officers are seeking more diverse backgrounds, he said. They are better prepared, but its not going to be easier, Hernandez said. Still, the rising demand is creating new opportunities for American schools and enterprising educators. In Pennsylvania, Chinese investor Jiang Bairong has bought the grounds of an old school and opened the new Princeton International School of Mathematics and Science miles away from Princeton University in a partnership with the High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China, an elite school in Beijing. Principal Max McGee said he had about 30 students last fall and that the goal is to have 250 students in five years. Half would be international students mostly from China. The students are immersed in English, and they learn how to write better, McGee said. Even after one year, they have become accomplished writers, and they can present with eloquence, power and selfconfidence. American public schools also are jostling for a slice of the cake. In Michigan, the public Lake Shore High School in the Detroit suburb of St. Clair Shores gets about 90 Chinese students each year, all from the Beijing Haidian International School. The students pay tuition and living expenses to spend 11th grade at Lake Shore High along with American students. A once-abandoned elementary school has been converted for use as a dormitory. Unlike private schools, U.S. public school districts cannot enroll foreign students for more than one year because of federal restrictions, though a bipartisan bill in Congress seeks change that. Sponsored by two New York congressmen, Democrat Bill Owens and Republican Chris Gibson, the bill proposes to remove the one-year restriction on foreign students attending U.S. K-12 public schools as long as they pay the full, unsubsidized per-person cost of attending the school district. In a written statement, Owens said the change would help public schools improve their bottom line at the time of flagging enrollment. Lake Shore Schools Superintendent Christopher Loria said his districts program benefits both American teenagers, who get a better view of the world, and Chinese students, who get a taste of American culture. They absolutely love it here. Many will comment that theyd rather stay here sometimes, Loria said. Obviously they dont, but most of them will come back and go to a college in the U.S. To ensure that the Chinese students will be able to pass high school graduation exams back home, the Haidian school sends its own teachers to Lake Shore High to provide tutoring classes on math, physics and chemistry. It also provides English tutoring, said Wang Yingkun, a Haidian principal. Marcus Barnett, a Lake Shore graduate now studying engineering at University of DetroitMercy, said Chinese students helped raise the academic bar at his old school. They go above and beyond when it comes to studying, he said. I came to the realization I needed to do the same thing. Barnett began taking Mandarin Chinese in seventh grade, traveled to China three times and has gained several Chinese brothers students his family has hosted. The experience has helped him understand the importance of being competitive in school and in life. Theyre coming here to go to (college) here. Could that have been my spot if I tried harder? he said. On a higher level, what happens after you graduate college? Those same people might want the same thing you want. Every student should have at least one Mrs. Hancock Our grandchildren either have begun, or will soon begin, a new school year. Time just continues to rush right on along. From top to bottom, Ariana Brannen is a senior in high school, Emily Lasse is a junior, Kaylee Brannen is a sophomore, Ashley Evans is a freshman, Eric Lasse is in sixth grade and both Joy Evans and Fred Brannen 4 are in fifth. It has been exciting watching them be excited about their new school clothes, new schools and all of the things that go with growing up and moving on down the road. For me, watching them fosters memories of my school days, and today, while talking with Joy about beginning fifth grade, I began to recall my personal experiences in the fifth grade. Honestly, I think that the fifth grade was probably my most meaningful school year. Why? The teacher. My fifthgrade teacher was Mrs. Zeru Hancock. Yes, thats right, Zeru. Its not a typo. What was so special about her that is, in addition to her name? When she would read or tell about foreign lands, lands Im reasonably sure she had not seen and would never see, she was still able to make you feel as though you were right there. She made history come alive. It wasnt just some boring recitation of dates and events, when she told us about the past, it became real. She displayed all of the hallmarks of an excellent educator, but she was more. She wasnt just an educator, she was an encourager. She was the first person to make me believe that my artistic efforts were worthwhile and that I should pursue them. She read the prose of a 10year-old boy, and made me believe that I could become a meaningful storyteller, maybe even another Mark Twain. I suppose thats really it in a nutshell: She helped me believe in me. I still paint and sometimes Im pleased with the results; and, as is obvious, I still write certainly not as Samuel Clemens wrote, but I string words together to entertain readers. In recent years, Cheryl and I have seen many of the places Mrs. Hancock told me about while I was in fifth grade. The reality has been wonderful, but so were the mental pictures given to me in the fifth grade. Seeing my paintings displayed at the Florida Artists Gallery and Caf and having the showing combined with a book signing for my recently published novel a few months ago is memorable, but so is every compliment that was given to me by Mrs. Hancock. Every student should have at least one Mrs. Hancock.Fred Brannen, an Inverness resident, has been a Chronicle columnist since 1988 and is the author of the recently published novel, At the Bottom of Biscayne Bay.

Like a growing number of Chinese teenagers, Zhang plans to enroll this fall in a private U.S. high school. Letters toTHE EDITOR Tired of seeing endorsement lettersWhy does the Chronicleprint all those endorsement letters? Does anyone read them? Does anyone care? Save the trees, print less. Dont we get enough trash through the mail, radio, and TV. Oh, and by the way, I hope they do not build the medical freeway. Why ruin a perfectly good two-lane, 55-mph road with a dual lane, divided, 45-mph highway, the way they did with County Road 486.Lloyd Beasley LecantoSetting the record straightOn July 15, I was interviewed by theChronicleconcerning my desire to (be) elected to the School Board of Citrus County. Imagine my dismay when, in the published interview on July 26, I was incorrectly quoted as saying, I was a good ol boy, who wanted to return to the good ol days. This is quite the opposite. When I asked for a clarification that was published on July 30, the clarification also mischaracterized me. The term good ol is not generally part of my lexicon, especially when referring to myself. I am not a good ol boy/guy who wants to return to the good ol days. What I said was, I was an old guy who wanted to return to the old days of teaching the basics of education. I believe that education is being replaced by ideological indoctrination and, for the most part, the problems of today are caused by the attempt to solve nonexistent problems of yesterday. I hope these misquotes were simply a misunderstanding of what you thought I said, or perhaps an editorial interpretation, and nothing more.Quinton Herrin Jr. candidate for Citrus County School Board, District 3

C4SUNDAY, AUGUST17, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE COMMENTARY Support McPheetersI endorse Renee ChristopherMcPheeters to be Citrus County Commissioner District 2 and wife Cheryl and I will be voting for her. Renee is for the people and looking out for our tax dollars. She is a real Republican with patriotic and moral values and ethics. As assistant to the town leader of the Republican Committee of Babylon, New York, I have the experience to know a great Republican candidate who deserves everyones vote for Citrus County Commissioner District 2 Renee ChristopherMcPheeters.Jeff Mintz Beverly HillsCommon-sense governmentA few years ago I attended a meeting and one of the gentlemen on the panel really impressed me. This man was different. He listened attentively and responded with common sense suggestions and alternatives. He was genuinely concerned with solving problems, not pleasing any special interests. This is the sort of person who should be elected to represent Citrus County and its citizens. This man is Ron Kitchen.Roger Dobronyi InvernessRe-elect Powers to school boardLinda Powers has been a valued member of our school board for two and a half terms. Her qualifications for this position are impressive, with her experience spanning nearly every level of education. Combined with her calm demeanor, sincere desire to advocate for students, and ability as an excellent problem solver, she is truly deserving of re-election. Those who have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Mrs. Powers are aware of her unique ability to cut to the heart of the problem and define a solution. She will never quit until that problem is solved. Having a person of this caliber willing to serve our community is an opportunity for all citizens. I urge you to cast your vote for Linda Powers, candidate for the Citrus County School Board, District 5.Nancy B. Fitzpatrick InvernessVote McPheeters BOCC seat 2The citizens should know the candidate for Citrus County Commission District 2, Renee Christopher McPheeters, is the only candidate who supported the Crystal River Mall by attending all of the permitting meetings of the Crystal River Planning Board and Crystal River City Council, speaking favorably at both meetings for permitting acceptance of Rural King. To myself as manager of the Crystal River Mall, this speaks volumes as to why Renee should be our commissioner as she will promote business in Citrus County, and she does have business experience. A vote for Renee is a vote for business and a more prosperous Citrus County.Millie Bresnahan Crystal River Mall Manager Crystal RiverSupport Powers for school boardLinda Powers has been outstanding in the Citrus County school system for many years. She is also a wonderful mother and grandmother. Vote for her for the school board.Rona Cooper InvernessVote McPheeters for BOCC seatOur residence is in the interlocal sewer area 112 and during the battle with BOCC to stop the projectfrom going forward, Mrs. Renee McPheeters was extremely helpful by getting involved speaking at BOCC meetings, writing letters to the editor and providing general support. We lost that battle and hopefully we will lose all of the commissioners involved. Seventy-three percent of the residents sent registered letters objecting to the project to no avail. Many homes have since been abandoned because the previous owners could not afford the sewer money grab. Two of Mrs. McPheeters opponents were elected officials who voted for the sewer atrocity. We will be voting for Renee Christopher-McPheeters who respects the citizens rights and encourage all to do the same.Glen Nail Joe Perruccio Crystal River Support McPheetersI have lived in Citrus County for 88 years, having been born here so I take the cake on knowing about Citrus County. As the very first Republican elected Commissioner in Citrus County in 1972, I worked hard for the betterment of our county and feel that standing for Republican values is of utmost importance. This is the reason I am endorsing Renee ChristopherMcPheeters to be our Citrus County Commissioner, District 2. My wife and my whole family will be voting for her. I am a disabled veteran and Renee has been working hard to help veterans; she is also for all citizens welfare and will not waste our tax money. Please vote for Renee on or before Aug. 26. I thank you in advance for voting for Renee.David L. Dick DeBusk InvernessVote Dodd for school boardWhen you vote, please vote Doug Dodd for school board. When you exercise your freedom to vote, I am confident that you desire to vote for the candidate that will provide the best service to the people of Citrus County. Vote Doug Dodd. In this case, I am confident that you also want to provide our students the best education possible. Vote Doug Dodd. Also, I am sure that you would feel good as a voter if you could help all the students in Citrus County graduate fully prepared to make a positive contribution in our county and to our world. Vote Doug Dodd. As a voter you would be even happier if you knew that our students were prepared academically, socially, physically and mentally when they departed our schools. Vote Doug Dodd. Can Doug really help in these matters? You better believe it. Please help us promote, encourage, support and elect Doug Dodd. He will make a difference. Doug Dodd is prepared to make a significant contribution to our school system. This is his time. We need him as a school board member. Do not miss this opportunity to make a difference in our schools. Vote Doug Dodd. Doug has prepared himself for this hour. He will lead us to have safe and drug-free schools. He will work to efficiently manage our tax dollars. His goal will be to make all our students and schools academically successful. Have you ever had the urge to do something significant for our kids, for our schools, for our community and for our country? Vote Doug Dodd. Has there ever been a time in our life when voting for the right person was more important? Vote Doug Dodd for school board. Did you ever want to just get in there and change things? Vote Doug Dodd. Did you ever really feel the urge to get on the ol soapbox and really tell it like it is? Vote Doug Dodd. Voters. Did you ever want to be proud and tell everyone who you voted for and give the reasons? Vote Doug Dodd. I have known Doug Dodd for many years and highly recommend him to fill this school board office for District 3. His educational background, his experience on the job, his experience with the youth, his work in our schools and his work and dedication to our community certainly set him apart to serve. I urge you to vote Doug Dodd and give him the opportunity to go to work for our students and for our Citrus County Schools.J. Casey Kearse InvernessBalfour has my voteI am a retired teacher originally from Wisconsin, and I volunteer at Homosassa Elementary School. Last fall I had some concerns, especially with Common Core. I emailed all the members of the Citrus County School Board and only received a reply from Sandy Balfour. She visited the classroom in which I was working, and we also talked at length afterwards about various school concerns. I think this is very telling as to her interest and dedication as a board member. Please vote for Sandy. She will always be available to discuss issues with parents and anyone else who wants to offer their input or suggestions regarding the education of our public school students.Marlene Frey HomosassaElect McPheeters to commissionIt is imperative that the citizens of Citrus County have Renee Christopher-McPheeters as a county commissioner of District 2. I am a senior citizen and Renee has shown her concern for not only myself, but others in the community. She is an example of the good Samaritan and we can all use more help. I have also discussed with her the political scenario that would be much improved with Renee on the BOCC (Board of County Commissioners)! Please show her your support as she is truly worthy of this position and will work hard on issues that are important to District 2 andCitrus County as a whole. Please remember to vote for Renee on Aug. 26 or before. Thank you.Peggy Friend, CMA Crystal RiverFletcher deserves school board seatI would like to formally endorse Donna Fletcher for Citrus County School Board District 5 seat. I have had the wonderful pleasure of working with Donna in a number of settings. Her heart and compassion for our students, teachers and education system is strong and steadfast. Donna Fletcher has showed on numerous occasions that she is ready and equipped to tackle challenges that our education system faces. I would love to see all of Citrus County to get out and vote, and I would encourage you to vote for Donna Fletcher for District 5 School Board.AJ Glenn Beverly HillsKeep Kenney on BOCCI am writing to express my support for the re-election of Commissioner JJ Kenney. He has shown leadership without a personal agenda. He is a calming voice of reason. We need Commissioner Kenneys sound and thoughtful approach to our countys current problems and its bright future opportunities. He served our country with 23 years of military service, including being a Vietnam veteran, then he came to Citrus County and served as our Veterans Service Officer working for the betterment of all local servicemen and women. As chairman of the commissioners, voted by his peers, the county has stabilized its budget, rebuilt the countys reserves and helped us maintain an AA bond rating in a difficult local market. He is very accessible to all citizens, open to suggestions and criticism, then he makes the best decision for the majority. I ask all voters to help us keep JJ Kenney, commissioner, as a voice for all the people!Michael Stokley HomosassaHerrin best choice for boardIve known Quinton Herrin for over 10 years now, and I was very happy to see him run for school board. Quinton has a lot of new ideas to get our school system back to, again, educating our kids. Seems like the things Quint wants to make policy are really simple, but they will make a big difference. As a retired air traffic controller, the mans got a sharp mind. Ive been around Quint long enough to believe that he is the kind of leader the school board needs, a stand-up man who will not be afraid of defending his position and will not be bullied into compromising his principles. Quinton is also the kind of guy who doesnt beat around the bush, and when he tells you something, you know it is not spin. I asked him a question one day and two days later he brought me three pages of research. Said he didnt want to guess, so he looked it up. And that is exactly what kind of person this county needs.Steve Spurlock Homosassa EndorsementLETTERS Well said, KatieI am calling in reference to the letter Katie Lucas of Beverly Hills wrote in the Chronicle today, July 31. It is titled, Do homework before voting. Right on, Katie. We all have a responsibility to do this and thank you for your encouraging letter. I believe that voting is a responsibility as well as a privilege, but we cannot just throw a dart at our ballot.Driving lessonsThis is for all drivers: Please do not use your cellphones for calling or picking up or texting. That can wait. And if you want to talk to somebody, please pull over to a parking lot. And plus, all the drivers, please do not tailgate me, because that is a ticket. Shouldve gone soonerTo the person who wrote in about the so-called Speckled Butterbean restaurant over by Wildwood thats been closed: They wrote that they really miss it and it was a great place to eat. According to the editors note, its been closed for several years. So obviously they couldnt have missed it too badly to realize that its been gone and another thing had moved in and they since have gone. So obviously that love for that restaurant wasnt very strong if its that long before it was realized that it was gone.Long-distance bluesI live in Citrus County in Citrus Springs, to be exact. When I make a phone call, it is not long distance to call Ocala, but I cant even call the Chronicle without it being long distance. I dont understand why in a county you cant call countywide and have it not be a toll charge. I hope some other people think about that too.No industry hereThis is for the person that wants industry in Citrus County, more industry, born here: Well, I was born here, too, and raised here. I dont want any industry. Go, move to Tampa, find a phosphate mine. Illinois, North Dakota, New Jersey, Ohio, Texas, Louisiana, Georgia has some really crappy towns that are belching out paper mills. I like Citrus County the way it is. The thing is, maybe you should move and let the rest of us stay here. Im 54. Im no old fogey, but Im no young squirt, either. I like Citrus County.Forum for usWill the Chronicle be sponsoring a candidate forum at the new Citrus County center in Beverly Hills? The forum that you are now having in south Inverness is quite far away. Be wonderful to have one in the center of our county at our new facility.Editors note:The Chronicle hosts two forums every election year. One for the Primary Election, which is at the Fairgrounds; and one for the General Election, which will be at the College of Central Florida. For the comfort of our guests, we attempt to host our forums at facilities large enough to hold between 300 and 500 people.The real good ol boysIm calling regarding Gerry Mulligans column last Sunday (July 27) when he spoke about the real good ol boys in Citrus County. He hit the nail right on the head. Ive been saying that forever that Charlie Dean and his puppets in the county commission and all are the real good ol boys and they just like to point back at others and call them the good ol boys. So great job, Gerry.Great serviceIm calling about our pharmacy, Dunnellon Pharmacy. These people are the most helpful, smart people Ive ever met. Theyre very helpful. I havent met one of the gentlemen or women in that pharmacy that wasnt sweet and real helpful. Very seldom do you wait more than five minutes.Donations for DozerRegarding a recent Sound Off relating to a shelter dog named Dozer that required surgery for his hip injuries: Since the Chronicle editor took the time to get a response from the county, its too bad it wasnt clarified that any county money spent for this dogs surgery would have actually come from money that was donated by citizens to the shelters special needs fund. The county doesnt budget adequately to staff its shelter. It would never take money for its own budget to afford surgery from an outside veterinarian. It is due to the kind donations from our county citizens and hard work of our various nonprofit animal welfare organizations that any type of surgery from an outside veterinarian is afforded for our county shelter animals.Dixon wrong on taxI totally disagree with Dr. Dixons recent editorial saying that one little tax increase for Citrus Memorial wont hurt us financially and its the right thing to do. Nonsense. Most of us dont enjoy Dr. Dixons retirement income and I personally am appalled by the actions of both the board and the foundation over the last several years. These good citizens have managed to squander our tax dollars for their own petty grievances and in the process have made two local lawyers wealthy in the process. Their actions demonstrate their total incompetence with regard to money management and the public trust. Ill bet they even have the gall to think theyve done a good job for the people of Citrus County. I say no to any more of our money going to this fiasco and let HCA take the deal as is. Mudslinging wrongThank you for your piece today, Sunday, Aug. 3, page C2, in the Opinion section. Yes, it appears to be a hostile takeover. I called Sound Off yesterday and reported my thoughts and your article adds to my suspicions exactly. Please, voters, we all need to do our homework and see this scam for what it is. Yes, I said scam. Please take your vote very serious, locally, statewide and nationally. Voting is a privilege. I do not want to lose it do you? Mudslingingis a form of bullying. This has to stop. This practice is wrong, very wrong. Wake up, voters, and vote responsibly. The wealthy ruleI rarely disagree with Gerry Mulligan, but I believe he is way off base if he thinks this country has the best form of government on the planet. The United States is no longer a democracy. We have become an oligarchy. The wealthy rule. They own the majority of the elected officials and the situation will continue to deteriorate locally, and even more so on the national level, until we have an election reform beginning with a constitutional amendment to drastically limit campaign spending.Cassette manI am trying to track down the fellow that put an ad in Sound Off to convert cassette tapes into CDs for music. He said he knew how to do it and I could find nobody else and Id sure appreciate if you could locate this fellow. The ad was in the paper about five weeks agoEditors note:Here is the Sound Off: I can transfer cassettes to CDs and I charge $5 a CD. My number is 352-6132034. Help the homelessIf we can build an animal shelter for $2.8 million, can we spend a few dollars on showers for the homeless? I remember in the s and s in the Army, there was always a shower tent on bivouac and the equipment was portable. If we could do that 55 years ago, surely we can do it now.Looking for Lt. Gov.I just received my sample ballot and I see that the governors are all listed and the lieutenant governors not yet designated. I hope that when the real ballot comes out, we will have a designation of who may be our governor later on after the election because something could happen to the governor and wed have somebody come in that nobody knows or had anything to do about electing. If they cant decide whos going to be with them, they shouldnt be running. SOUND OFFCALL563-0579

Support Powers and KennedyLinda Powers and Thomas Kennedy are dynamic and caring school board members who have provided successful leadership to our students, teachers and educational community. In my prior role as a school psychologist, I have presented programs and information to the school board on numerous occasions and have always been impressed by the insightful questions and support provided by these two individuals. Although I am recently retired after 34 years of practice, my daughter is a Citrus County teacher, and two of my grandchildren attend primary school in our district. I have always felt that our school system is highly responsive to the needs of our community, and that school system stability is created when intelligent and proactive board members are able to continue to function in their elected positions. Mrs. Powers has an extensive background in the fields of mental health and education. Prior to being elected to the school board, she served our community as a licensed mental health counselor and school guidance counselor. Lindas teaching experience at the middle, high school and community college levels have provided her with a broad perspective on a myriad of educational issues and she truly believes that education is a life time journey. In addition to her teaching experience, Linda has also served as assistant principal and acting principal. In addition to her role as a school board member, she was instrumental in our school districts development and establishment of several crisis-intervention procedures as well as the International Baccalaureate Program. Linda is dedicated to strengthening our community and has previously served as a board member for numerous state/county organizations (Florida School Board Association, Legislative committee, Withlacoochee Regional Planning Council, Citrus County Family Visitation Center, Habitat for Humanity, Salvation Army, Eckerd Youth Camp ENini-Hassee and the Citrus Education Foundation). This wide range of leadership experience combined with her calm/analytical approach to complex problem solving situations has positively impacted our community. Mr. Thomas Kennedy is always striving to find innovative ways to support classroom instruction, and is able to blend his strong business background and personal experiences with input that he constantly seeks from a wide range of our school districts stakeholders. His blog serves as an excellent communication tool, and Thomas truly enjoys talking directly with students, school board employees and parents. He is passionate about his position on the school board and is a strong advocate for children with special needs. He is a ubiquitous presence at student award ceremonies and is quick to offer his praise and encouragement for continued success. Thomas business acumen makes him acutely aware of the fiscal realities inherent in school system budgeting as he carefully considers the financial impact of each boards decision on the well being of our students and taxpayers. John F. Kennedy once said that Children are the worlds most valuable resources and its best hope for the future. It is my strong belief that Linda Powers and Thomas Kennedy are our best hope for the future of children in Citrus County Schools.Dr. Andy Nott, NCSP School psychologist InvernessVote Powers for school boardI am writing to encourage my community to support the return of Linda Powers to the Citrus County School Board for another term. She has been an effective member since 2004. She is already trained in the letter of the law governing our fine schools. Lindas background in teaching and counseling all grades from elementary through college gives her a great working knowledge of what the needs are for each and every student. I have witnessed her research efforts to bring everything she has to help her community, and I am very proud of her work. It is much easier for our teachers, students and parents to sleep at night knowing that Linda is working on their behalf. Since any school board has to be a complaint department, we all want a great communicator with compassion and intelligence, and Lindas masters degree in counseling sure does fit the bill. As a resident of Citrus County for over 30 years, I want her to stay right where she belongs. She has the insight we all want for our children and grandchildren. Please join me and my family in supporting the return of Linda Powers to the Citrus County School Board.Dianne Brashear InvernessVote for McPheetersMy wife and I have supported and voted for Renee Christopher-McPheeters to be our commissioner since Renee first ran for county commissioner, as it was clear she is a fiscal conservative and not beholden to special interests. We encourage everyone to vote on or before Aug. 26, for Renee ChristopherMcPheeters to be our Citrus County Commissioner, District 2 or suffer higher taxes and wasted spending.Pat Havey Beverly Hills EndorsementLETTERSCOMMENTARYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST17, 2014 C5 0 00H90Y_2x1 000H90Y_2x4 Dont Miss Out!

Elect BalfourThe time has come in the education of all our children for them to have a solid, knowledgeable voice on the school board. The time has come for all board members to not only talk the talk but to walk and live it as well. The time has indeed come for Sandy Balfour. As a retired teacher and current Citrus County substitute, I know Sandy recognizes the challenges that students and staff are facing. She encourages others to share their ideas for improvements and can be trusted to listen and most importantly, hear concerns from students, parents, staff and community members. Sandy is a former businesswoman. When her boys were starting school, there were elements of their education that troubled her. Sandys solution was to become a teacher and really learn how to help her boys. Very quickly, it became apparent to her that other children needed a voice as well. Someone to make their educational experience all that it could be. Sandy Balfour doesnt just pay lip service to the educational process. She has devoted her life to making students life long learners. Sandy has brought her passion and considerable talents to every level of education. Board membership is so much more than a job. School board members should come to this position with a heartfelt conviction to take action for the betterment of all the children they serve. I believe the basis of that conviction has to have its roots in the best possible educational process. There can be no personal agendas. Our children are the only agenda when it comes to education. We are at a time in our history when it is more important than ever before to enhance our childrens education not dummy it down. Sandy Balfour sets a high bar for her students and herself, as well. Raise the bar and others will strive to meet it. Lower it, and watch others cease to care. Raise the bar with Sandy Balfour on the Citrus County School Board.Ann Krukowski Beverly HillsElect FletcherMrs. Donna Fletcher is a perfect candidate for Citrus County School Board not only because she works at the Academy of Environmental Science controlling the finances, but also because she is also a wonderful mom who has a son in second grade and knows all the current issues firsthand. I had the pleasure living with her and her amazing family as an exchange student during the past school year. She was always pushing and encouraging me and changed my way of thinking so much. I know firsthand she works hard for everything she wants to achieve in life, like running for school board and so many other things. Citrus County needs a fresh, young face on its school board. She is so dedicated to giving her son and your children the best possible education. I remember when I said: I love American high school, because its so easy, its not challenging me at all and I just go there to hang out with my friends. She wasnt surprised. We got to know each others cultures very well during the time I was staying at her house and she was aware of foreign countries being way ahead in education. She knows changes have to be made within the system. She feels like she owes it to her son. I believe what most parents want for their children is them having a bright and successfulfuture. In order for us children to achieve this goal, it is very important to give us the education we need. Donna Fletcher can turn those visions into achievements.So please, dont forget to vote for her, whether in an absentee ballot, early voting or in the primary election on Aug. 26. Donna Fletcher makes changes for good.Shirlin A. Maar HernandoElect DoddI am writing this letter in support of one of the finest people I know, Doug Dodd. He is an excellent choice for our school board and possesses all of the qualities needed to be a superb member. Doug has integrity, compassion, good judgment and is completely fair in his analytical abilities. I have known Doug through his work with the Citizens Academy and the Citizens Academy Alumni Association. I must say, Doug has a heart for kids, and this is why he developed a high school Citizens Academy program. The students who attend this high school academy learn not only about our criminal justice system, but also about different career opportunities. They also learn about our county and state government. It is a great program! With Dougs education and background of 26 1/2 years with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office he would also have the safety of our children utmost in his mind. We need a professional like Doug Dodd to offer a different perspective and fresh dimension to our school board. For all of the reasons mentioned above, he definitely has my vote. Doug Dodd is an excellent choice for school board District 3!Jonna Wing InvernessSupport PowersWe have had the pleasure of meeting and knowing Linda Powers for many years. She has the experience of being on the school board for 10 years. She has worked tirelessly for the students of this county. She was instrumental in getting the IB program, which has benefited our children. In the past, parents had to take their children to Ocala, which was extremely hard and disruptive to their busy schedules. We have personally known a few families who had to endure the hardship. Linda is a very dedicated individual who has been involved in bringing recognition to Art Education and Citrus County, attaining an A grade for the last seven years. She has also been instrumental in the expansion of Technical Education and the installation of safety traffic signs in our schools. Linda supports strong basics in curriculum and fiscal responsibility at all levels in the school system. Linda brings tremendous knowledge as a school board member due to her experience as a teacher, instructor, counselor and administrator in primary and secondary schools and in community college. She has also served on the State Educational Panels Regional Planning Council. She was recognized in 2013 as a friend of Art Education by the Florida Art Education Association, as well as being recognized as the most Admired Educator in 1998. Linda is very active in our community. She has worked closely with local civic groups such as Habitat for Humanity, Salvation Army, Withlacoochee Regional Planning council, Citrus County Fair, Leadership Citrus 2005 and Eckerd Youth Camp. We need board members like Linda Powers to take our schools to the next level. We strongly believe in her experience, integrity and proven leadership skills to achieve this goal. We support her in her endeavor to serve again on the school board. We urge everyone to do the same.Dr. Parmanand and Jaya Gurnani InvernessVote FletcherI would like to take the opportunity to recommend Donna Fletcher to serve on the Citrus County School Board. Over two years ago we were interviewing different schools for our grandsonto attend. At that time, we were not sure which to choose. One evening, that all changed. My husband and his guest attended a dinner for AES and had the privilege of having Donna Fletcher, who worked for the Academy, sit at their table. Donna talked about her pride for the school, the students and the incredible staff she worked with. It was obvious that the positions she served in, was more than a job to her it was a place where she could use her abilities and talents to serve the parents, students and school. It was clear that she left no stone unturned in making each day a better one. Among her many skills, she has worked in finances, bookkeeping, registrar, guidance counselor and on a daily basis communicates with the students and their parents. She has and continues to help each student prepare the way for not only academic success, but has been a model to them to do their best. Donna has grown up and attended school in Citrus County and now her 8-year-old son is attending school in Citrus County. She has a vested interest in making education and the curriculum the best it can be. Her goal is to use all her talents and abilities to create an environment that will benefit each individual student to help them become the very best they can be. She has already affected the lives of many students and parents at AES and with the opportunity to be a part of the board she can expand and continue her great influence to others as well.Helen Widman Dunnellon EndorsementLETTERSC6SUNDAY, AUGUST17, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLECOMMENTARY August 19 6PM City of Crystal River Music in the Park Kings Bay Park Bandshell Contact Phone: 795-4216 August 30 9:00 AM Citrus County Craft Council 25th Annual Harvest Moon Craft Show Citrus County Auditorium Contact Phone: 352-503-6329 September 6 Driving Change Together United Ways Annual Campaign Kick-Off Plantation on Crystal River $75.00 per person purchased online at www.citrusunitedway.org or by calling the office 352-795-5483 September 6 Citrus County Veterans Foundation (CCVF) 10th Annual Citrus County Veterans 4 Person Scramble Citrus Hills Golf and Country Club Check in; 7:30 a.m.; Shotgun start: 8:30 a.m. Entrance Fee: $55.00 Contact Phone: 352-382-3847 September 13 Citrus Springs Civic Association Kids Garage Sale Citrus Springs Community Center Contact Phone: (352) 465-5920 September 20-27 Citrus 20/20 Inc, Save Our Water Week (SOWW) Nineteenth Annual Save Our Waters Week Contact Phone: 352-382-3847 Sept 20 City of Inverness Farmers Market featuring Cooking Demo with Chef Kulow Downtown Inverness Contact Phone: 352-423-4408 Sept 20 6:00 AM Citrus 20/20, Inc.

Section DSUNDAY, AUGUST 17, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Bruce WilliamsSMART MONEY DEAR BRUCE: I am 70 years old, and my wife is 68. I am finally in a position to buy a house. I have $500,000 in an IRA and $100,000 in liquid assets. We have no bills, and my credit rating is 800. My rent is $1,150 a month plus utilities. I have a yearly income of $72,000. Im hoping you can give me some advice on pros and cons about buying a house at our ages. W.F., Oxnard, California DEAR W.F.: There is no right or wrong here. If you have set your mind on buying a house and can find one at the right price, go for it. The question is, what is the right price? But given the fact that you have $100,000 in liquid assets, no bills and excellent credit rating, I dont see any reason at this point to purchase. The amount of money you are spending for rent right now certainly is doable, and you have none of the headaches that a homeowner has. If you really want to own a house, I wouldnt spend much more than $150,000 to $200,000, and in your part of the world, that may be a difficult goal to meet. DEAR BRUCE: My fiance filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy several years ago before we got together. A year after the wedding will be five years since he filed. Can you give me an idea what effect that may have on my credit rating? E.M. DEAR E.M.: The fact that your fiance filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy before you met should not affect you in any way. The five years will be over, and hopefully the matter will be put aside. It would have no effect on your credit rating as long as you keep your affairs separate, which I would suggest that you do. DEAR BRUCE: We had three children. One of my daughters passed away suddenly last year. Our desire is that when we are gone, our two surviving children each Going from renting to buying at age 70 See MONEY/ Page D4 Dr. Ferderick Herzog, Ph.D.NONPROFIT BRIEFS Most sacred to a nonprofit organization is its purpose and mission. Equally important are the federal and state tax exemptions available to nonprofits. Governmental agencies involved in nonprofit regulations and oversight provide financial benefits via tax exemptions not available to the forprofit business community. Tax exemptions allow a nonprofit optimal utilization of its revenue streams. Eliminating the cash drain of paying taxes is akin to earning money. Nontaxed revenue received by a nonprofit is a considerable benefit that preserves cash. It allows a nonprofit the financial capacity to continue supporting its mission. Nonprofits that receive the exemption benefit have an obligation to identify their sources of revenue on the Annual Information Return. Should this annual return indicate some revenue outside the organizations purpose and mission, UBIT (Unrelated Business Income Tax) may apply.UBITIdentifying and documenting sources of revenue requires appropriate IRSsuggested bookkeeping practices. If one or more revenue streams record earnings not within the scope of a nonprofits acceptable sources of revenue, UBIT may apply. Unrelated Business Income Tax is a liability that nonprofits pay should they unfairly compete with the for-profit businesses that pay tax on net income after expense. For-profit businesses generate revenue, deduct the cost of doing business expenses, pay shareholder dividends and finally income tax on net earnings. This is the cost burden that exists for the for-profit business entity. At the other end of this revenue/taxation spectrum is the nonprofit organization. They generate revenue and enjoy tax exemptions on income as long they do not compete directly with the Nonprofit revenue compliance concerns, Part 3 See NONPROFIT/ Page D4 MEGANCARELLA For the ChronicleAdesire to return to smalltown Florida brought Adnan Mohammadbhoy, D.O., to Citrus County in 2011. Known by one and all as Dr. Mo, the Florida native is the new chief of surgery for Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center, where he performs a wide range of surgical procedures using traditional and minimally invasive techniques. As chief of surgery, Mohammadbhoy works closely with hospital administration to bridge gaps between the surgeons and administration. He serves as part of the hospitals quality-control team, making sure physicians paperwork, education and other credentials are up to standards and meet statemandated requirements. Medicine is the family business for Mohammadbhoy. His father is an OBGYN in their hometown of Arcadia, so becoming a doctor was always on my mind, he said. But a traumatic experience in college led Mohammadbhoy to pursue surgery as a specialty. I was in a car accident as an undergrad. I had to miss a few semesters of school and needed surgery, he recalled. Seeing surgeons in action made me feel like I wanted to be on the other side. Mohammadbhoy earned his medical degree from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Erie, Pennsylvania. He completed a rotating internship and his general surgery residency at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Philadelphia. He practiced in Philadelphia, Maine and Washington state before he and his wife, also from Arcadia, decided to return home to Florida. Knowing they wanted to raise their two daughters in a small community, they took two years investigating opportunities before choosing Citrus County. For Mohammadbhoy and his family, its been the perfect move. We have access to the water and great public schools, he said. And even though this is a smaller community, there are so many activities available for the kids. In Philadelphia, everything was so busy and hectic. Here, I can do the work I love but still manage to coach my daughters sports teams and make it to their dance or music performances. Board-certified in general surgery, Mohammadbhoy mends hernias, removes gallbladders and performs appendectomies, cancer and emergency surgeries and other procedures. The technological advances in surgical techniques have allowed him to provide a range of minimally invasive surgeries which result in less pain and a shorter recovery time for his patients. STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleDr. Adnan Mohammadbhoy is the new chief of surgery at Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center. Dr. Mohammadbhoy is a board-certifi ed general surgeon with a private practice on Gulf-to-Lake Highway in Crystal River. He assumed his new position with Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center effective June 1. New chief of surgery at Seven Rivers finds Citrus a comfortable fit See DR. MO/ Page D4 Associated PressWASHINGTON The federal panel that sets sentencing policy announced Thursday that it plans in the coming year to consider changes to sentencing guidelines for some white-collar crimes. The U.S. Sentencing Commission, which earlier this year reduced guideline ranges for drug crimes, unanimously approved its latest set of priorities. The top priority will be continuing to work with Congress on reducing the scope and severity of mandatory minimum penalties, but another goal will be evaluating the fairness of sentences for economic crimes like fraud, the commission said. The panel had been reviewing data for several years, but plans to hear more from judges, victims and others to decide whether there are ways the economic crime guidelines could work better, the commissions chairwoman, Patti Saris, a federal judge in Massachusetts, said in a statement. Defense lawyers who long have sought the changes say a window to act opened once the sentencing commission cut sentencing guidelines for drug crimes, clearing a major priority from its agenda. Its unclear what action the commission ultimately will take, especially given the public outrage at fraudsters who stole their clients life savings and lingering anger over the damage inflicted by the 2008 financial crisis. But the discussion about tweaking sentences for economic crimes comes as some federal judges have chosen to ignore the existing guidelines in some cases and as the Justice Department, which has said it welcomes a review, looks for ways to cut costs in an overpopulated federal prison system. Sentencing guidelines are advisory rather than mandatory, Economic crime to get fresh look from sentencing panel See CRIME/ Page D5

Meeting at the recent Southeast Building Conference (SEBC) in Orlando, the Florida Home Builders Association (FHBA) has endorsed Gov. Rick Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi and Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam in their re-election bids. I think everyone would agree that when you have a winning team, it doesnt make sense to change the players, said FHBA President Ron Lieberman, a longtime Citrus County homebuilder. Clearly, thats the consensus of the Florida Home Builders Association and its Political Action Committee with respect to Governor Rick Scott and the members of his Cabinet. Bondi and Putnam actually attended the SEBC and Scott called into the FHBA Governmental Affairs Committee meeting to tout his jobs-generating agenda. Speaking at the conference, Bondi thanked the association, its local builders associations and members for promoting economic growth and prosperity. I am honored to receive support from the Florida Home Builders Association, Bondi said. The industry is extremely important to Floridas economy and in helping families realize the American Dream of homeownership. In addition to the two Cabinet members, the SEBC was attended by Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera, who toured the exhibit hall and gave an inspiring message to high school students involved in the Future Builders of America program.

He is also trained in robotic surgery and takes full advantage of Seven Rivers Robotic Surgery Center. When I explain the benefits of robotic surgery to my patients, they seem very comfortable with it, he said. Afterward, most of them tell me they never want surgery any other way. Along with the high-tech surgery center, its the smalltown atmosphere Mohammadbhoy appreciates. Theres camaraderie here; I have a close relationship with the other physicians and the hospital staff,he said. Just being comfortable working with everybody ina team approach makes things go well. Things go smoother and thats always better for our patients. for-profit firms that carry the tax liability. Once a nonprofit competes directly with a for-profit business by offering the same product or service, that action creates an unfair business environment. Industry executives, through their elected officials, made this point of unfair competition very clear. Regulatory law and IRS monitoring of nonprofits income ensued.The Annual Information ReturnAs a nonprofit grows its revenue base, the importance of the Annual Information/tax return becomes more extensive. The sources of revenue streams must be listed and, to be sure, IRS will actively scrutinize for possible taxable income where UBIT applies. Years ago, large nonprofits that enjoyed huge streams of income from trade shows, magazine advertizing and other revenues IRS labeled as taxpaying nonprofits. Since they competed with for-profit companies in certain income areas, they were required to pay taxes on net income after expenses, retaining only revenue allowable from their nonprofit status.The bottom lineThere are basic revenue-earning considerations for nonprofits. Keep an accurate set of books. Retain all original source documents for at least seven years. Show and identify all sources of revenue. Indicate income and expenses resulting from new revenue streams. Comply with on-time reporting to IRS and your state of incorporation, county and local municipalities where required. Dr. Frederick J.

Our bank accounts and annuities have our names on them and the names of our two children. Our home is in our names only. We have completed a will. Our two surviving children know about the will and what our wishes are. We have done everything we think is right to ensure our wishes are properly carried out. We firmly believe our children will do the right thing, but would like to know if our will protects them all, especially the three children of our deceased daughter. A.T. DEAR A.T.: It seems to me that you thought this out very carefully. First you say, Our bank accounts and annuities have our names on them and the names of our two children. Why would their names be on your bank accounts and annuities? Those things should be in your names as well as your home. If the will is completed and witnessed, it should do the job. You say your two surviving children know about the will and your wishes. Given the fact that you trust your surviving children and you have a will that clearly states who gets what, I think you are in good shape. DEAR BRUCE: I dont believe there is any such thing as a no-load mutual fund, or anything noload. For any company to function, there have to be employees and everything to support it. Mutual funds are extremely complex, and tracking the right kind of stocks in the right kind of sectors takes time, effort and lot of money. So they hide the costs. The important thing to look for is the bottom line and what the return is at the end of the year. Noload does not mean anything except to make the fund a crooked fund to hide the cost. S.P DEAR S.P .: I agree with much of what you said until the end, when you said, No-load does not mean anything except to make the fund a crooked fund to hide the cost. Thats just not true. Some companies charge you up front, and others are no-load, where there is no upfront commission. That is one major variable to consider when choosing a fund, but there are others. If the no-load fund is set up so it doesnt hide anything, but merely spreads the cost over a longer period of time, there is nothing wrong with that. There are some fine load funds and also equally fine no-load funds. The choice is yours. Send questions to bruce @brucewilliams.com. Questions of general interest will be answered in future columns.

MOContinued from Page D1 Associated PressNEW YORK Europe appears on the brink of another recession. Islamic militants have seized Iraqi territory. Russian troops have massed on the Ukraine border, and the resulting sanctions are disrupting trade. An Ebola outbreak in Africa and Israels war in Gaza are contributing to the gloom. Its been a grim summer in much of the world. Yet investors in the United States have largely shrugged it off so far, at least. A big reason is that five years after the Great Recession officially ended, the U.S. economy is showing a strength and durability that other major nations can only envy. Thanks in part to the Federal Reserves ultra-low interest rates, employers have ramped up hiring, factories have boosted production and businesses have been making money. All of this has cushioned the U.S. economy from the economic damage abroad. And investors have responded by keeping U.S. stocks near all-time highs. Not even reports Friday of a Ukrainian attack on Russian military vehicles unnerved investors for long, with blue chip stocks regaining nearly all their midday losses by the close. Were in a much better place psychologically, says Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moodys Analytics. And its allowing us to weather the geopolitical threats much more gracefully. Still, the global turmoil comes at a delicate time. China, the worlds second-biggest economy, is struggling to contain the fallout from a runaway lending and investment boom thats powered its growth since before the 2008 financial crisis.

but judges still rely heavily on them for consistencys sake. Advocates arguing that whitecollar sentencing guidelines are mixed up and crazy could weaken support for keeping them in place, said Ohio State University law professor Douglas Berman, a sentencing law expert. The commissions action to soften drug-crime guidelines is a signal that the time is ripe, defense lawyers say. The commission this year agreed to reduce guideline ranges across drug types and then apply that change retroactively to the current inmate population, a move that could permit tens of thousands of drug-dealing felons to seek an early release. The commission says no inmate would be freed early under the change unless a judge determined that the release would not jeopardize public safety. Just as drug sentences historically have been determined by the amount of drugs involved, white-collar punishments typically are defined by the total financial loss caused by the crime. Advocates hope the commissions decision to lower sentencing guideline ranges for drug crimes, effectively de-emphasizing the significance of drug quantity, paves the way for a new sentencing scheme that removes some of the weight attached to economic loss. A 2013 proposal from an American Bar Association task force would do exactly that, encouraging judges to place less emphasis on how much money was lost and more on a defendants culpability. Under the proposal, judges would more scrupulously weigh lessquantifiable factors, including motive, the schemes duration and sophistication, and whether the defendant actually financially benefited or merely intended to. The current structure, lawyers say, means bit players in a large fraud risk getting socked with harsh sentences despite playing a minimal role. Its real easy to talk about 10, 15, 20 years, but when you realize just how much time youre talking about ... its too much, said Washington defense lawyer Barry Boss, an ABA task force member. No one is talking about leniency for imprisoned financier Bernie Madoff, whos serving a 150-year sentence for bilking thousands of people of nearly $20 billion, or fallen corporate titans whose greed drove their companies into the ground. But defense lawyers are calling for a sentencing structure that takes into account the broad continuum of economic crime and that better differentiates between, for example, a thief who steals a dollar each from a million people versus $1 million from one person. Any ambitious proposal will encounter obstacles. Its virtually impossible to muster the same public sympathy for white-collar criminals as for crack-cocaine defendants sentenced under old guidelines now seen as excessively harsh, which took a disproportionate toll on racial minorities. The drug-sentencing overhaul also was promoted as fiscally prudent, because drug offenders account for roughly half the federal prison population. Tea party conservatives and liberal groups united behind the change. In comparison, the clamor for changing white-collar guidelines has been muted. The Justice Department, already criticized for its paucity of criminal prosecutions arising from the financial crisis, has said its open to a review but has not championed dramatic change. I dont think theres a political will for really cutting back or retooling the guidelines, Columbia University law professor Daniel Richman said.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, AUGUST17, 2014 D5 Fax: (352) 563-5665 l Toll Free: (888) 852-2340 l Email: classifieds@chronicleonline.com l website: www.chronicleonline.com To place an ad, call563-5966 Chronicle ClassifiedsClassifieds In Print and Online All The Time699186 EXP.

CRIMEContinued from Page D1 It might not take much an oil-price spike, a prolonged recession in Europe, a plunge in business or consumer confidence to derail the global economy. Heres a look at the strengths and weaknesses of the U.S economy and others, and why the calm in markets may or may not last:MORE JOBSHiring in the United States has surged in the first seven months of this year. Monthly job gains are averaging a solid and steady 230,000, based on government figures. Thats roughly an average of 35,000 more jobs each month compared with last year. Fewer people are applying for unemployment benefits. And fewer new hires are working as temps. Both trends suggest stronger job security. Economists say the cumulative effect of all those additional paychecks should propel growth and help insulate the U.S. economy from trouble abroad. Though low-paying industries account for much of the hiring, many economists foresee more jobs coming from higher-wage industries such as construction, engineering and consulting. Zandi expects monthly job growth to accelerate to an average of 275,000 sometime next year.RECORD PROFITSEarnings at companies in the Standard and Poors 500 index are on track to jump 10 percent in the second quarter from a year earlier, according to S&P Capital IQ, a research firm. That would be the biggest quarterly gain in nearly three years. That news has helped the S&P 500 index climb nearly 6 percent this year, extending a bull market into its sixth year. The gains have been remarkably steady, too. The stock market hasnt suffered a correction a drop of 10 percent in nearly three years, twice as long as is typical. Still, some markets outside the U.S. are falling. Japans benchmark Nikkei 225 is down 6 percent this year. Germanys DAX has lost nearly 5 percent, and Frances CAC 40 is down 3 percent. At the same time, global investors have been pouring money into U.S. Treasurys, long seen as a safe bet in troubled times. The yield on Treasury notes maturing in 10 years, which falls when demand rises, hit 2.3 percent on Friday, its lowest level in more than a year. Christine Short, a director at S&P Capital IQ, worries that more grim news from abroad could send U.S. stocks tumbling. Markets are ripe for correction, she says. The only question is, What is the catalyst?HELP FROM CENTRAL BANKSThe Fed has been paring its pace of bond purchases and will end them altogether this fall. The purchases have been intended to hold down longerterm rates and prod consumers and businesses to borrow and spend. But the Fed has stressed that it will keep short-term rates at low levels even if unemployment reaches a level usually linked to rising inflation. Many economists project that the Fed wont lift short-term rates until mid-2015. Another plus for economies, at least in the short-term: The Feds lowrate policies have influenced other central banks. The Bank of Japan is buying bonds to stimulate growth and the European Central Bank is facing calls to do so itself.FOREIGN EXPOSUREThough the U.S. economy has managed so far to withstand the economic and geopolitical turmoil abroad, it isnt immune to it. And the bad news kept coming this past week. The 18-country eurozone, a key region that emerged from recession last year and accounts for nearly a fifth of global output, failed to grow at all in the second quarter of the year. The European recovery is faltering, said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at BMO Private Bank. Escalating tension between the West and Russia isnt helping. Exports from the eurozone to Russia account for less than 1 percent of the regions economic output. But Germany, Europes largest economy, is vulnerable. The German economy contracted 0.2 percent in the second quarter compared with the previous quarter. And business confidencein Germany is plummeting. Nearly half of revenue in the companies in the S&P 500 comes from selling abroad. And exports contributed 14 percent of U.S. economic output last year, up from 9 percent in 2002.WHERE ARE THE SHOPPERS?Retail sales stalled in the United States last month. Wage growth has failed to surpass inflation, leaving many consumers unwilling or unable to spend more. Sales at auto dealers and department stores fell in July. Walmart this week cut its profit outlook. Macys trimmed its sales forecast. Its not just U.S. consumers who are spending less. Japans economy cratered in the AprilJune quarter, due to a sales tax hike. The economy there shrank 6.8 percent from a year earlier. And shoppers face another sales tax increase in October 2015.OIL SPIKEWill fighting in Iraq and Ukraine upend global energy markets, and raise the cost of filling your gas tank and heating your home? Europe is worried because it gets much of its natural gas from Russia. And Iraq is the secondbiggest OPEC oil producer. Before dropping last month, crude oil prices hit a 10-month high in June on news of victories by Islamic State fighters. UNSHAKABLEContinued from Page D4

T omika Spires-Hanssen 352-586-6598 REDUCED REDUCED and eliminates the need for a weed whacker. Shed leaves can be blown or raked onto the tree ring as decorative top mulch. Hand gathered pine needles are excellent to deter weed seeds from sprouting. For the first few years of a saplings life, always prune off lower branches while they are small so the tree will grow taller faster. The resulting canopy will be higher. Prune at the thickened branch collar and leave no stubs. The tree will heal over quickly from the undamaged collar. Prune annually until the first branch is at least 10 feet high. Branches need to be kept above foot and vehicle traffic. Keep in mind that branches sag with age. As trees mature and provide a wide shady canopy, grass below will die due to lack of sunlight. Weeds may invade the surrounding ring. These can be pulled while young or killed with a 3 percent to 5 percent glyphosate solution, a non-restricted herbicide. An alternate solution is to install shade-tolerant plants. Study the base of the tree trunk to see where thick roots are radiating. Try probing with a spike to find spaces between the large anchoring roots where small potted plants could be planted. Choose three to five shrubs that will mature to about 3 to 5 feet diameter. Shrubs planted 3 feet from the trunk should have enough space and light to thrive. Be aware the established tree roots will be absorbing the rain water and nutrients. You may need to irrigate understory plants and supply time-released fertilizer annually. Azaleas can flower in shady tree rings. Study the internet then choose Encore azaleas with the fixed mature height and diameter you want. After selecting the appropriate height, then decide on a color. Patented Encores are worth the extra money, as they repeat-bloom from September to March rather than the three to four weeks of older varieties. Beneath a River Birch planted to shade the west wall and roof of my garage, I planted an Autumn Cheer and three Autumn Angle Encore Azaleas. Both will mature only 3 feet high and about 3 feet diameter. The little azaleas are 3.5 feet apart. In the spaces between are Queen Mum agapanthus bulbs which will also flower in shade, but not until June or July. Florida violets and native rain lilies are filling in as a selfseeding ground cover. Coonties, Zamia pumila, a native cycad, grow well in tree rings. Coonties tolerate full sun in winter and dense shade in summer beneath shade trees. Volunteer Friends of Dunnellon Public Library recently planted 40 mature male coonties in 12 tree rings scattered around the parking lot. After the first month, Coonties need only a quart of water weekly as they become established.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant. Semi-retired, she grows thousands of native plants.

Today Grumette spends half the year in Pittsboro and half the year in India, where he has a 7-year-old boy named for the spiritual master Meher Baba, who said he was the avatar, or God in human form. On his website Baba.com, Grumette explains that his work is aimed at making people happy, doing good for both the client and the world and for celebrating all he holds beautiful. We try to uphold the values that would please Meher Baba, Grumette said. Honesty and integrity. We have never had a board sent back. Sammy Ortiz started working at his uncles company 17 years ago, not long after finishing at UNC-Wilmington, and he, too, started out taking down barns with a crowbar. Now he runs the mills daily operations as a vice president with a T-shirt, ball cap and thick beard, his hands stained brown from work. One quality that immediately sets Babas wood apart from a lower-end board is its size, 12 to 18 inches wide and an inch thick. If it didnt come from a barn itself, it might come from old growth wood stored inside the barn, maybe only 50 years old but just as thick. These farmers saved everything, Ortiz explained. Another feature is the woods surface. Baba doesnt plane the surfaces, cutting only from the bottom until it gets to the right length. The tops of boards are each hand-sanded, then fumed with ammonia to pull out tannic acids and darken the wood. If you took a piece of regular oak and let it sit 100 years, Ortiz said, thats what were doing with this fuming process. After that, all the knotholes and other imperfections are stuffed with round plugs and rectangular chunks called splines. That way, Baba can use longer boards without having to cut around the holes. If a high heel can go in it, its too big, said Ortiz, explaining the rule. All around him, the lumber sits stacked 15 feet high, bygone barns waiting their turn. Among its references, Baba lists the owners of Starbucks and Chanel. Bunny Williams, celebrated interior designer, endorses their floors. Ronald S. Lauder, billionaire son of the Estee Lauder cosmetics family, wrote this letter: Dear Jonathan, I should have told you long before now how much Jo Carole and I love the floors. They add so much to the wonderful feeling of the rooms, and they fit into the dcor as though they have always been there. But Grumette still calls his turn in reclaimed wood a happy accident, a chance to turn the unused into something vital, the unwanted into treasure. Clients dont just want it to look pretty. They want it to tell a story. That was the case for a top executive at Costco. When Baba put in his floors, Ortiz said, the curious client asked exactly where it came from. He enjoyed hearing of its history as a tobacco warehouse, and just for an extra kick, Ortiz told him what now stands in its place. Its a Costco now, he said. He was tickled by that.

Raindrops bead on the green leaves of thousands of young plants in the shade nursery at the Great Mississippi Tea Co. in Brookhaven, a glistening endorsement of Jason McDonalds plan for land where cattle once roamed. Healthy little plant, tea consultant Nigel Melican observes, picking one up for a closer look. In two years, youll be plucking that for tea. A steaming cup of comfort from these leaves is still a bit down the road, but thats the goal Mississippi-made specialty tea, an agritourism draw and a crop that wont get wiped out by a hurricane. Tourists, too, are still a year or two away, McDonald says. McDonalds family has been timber farming since the early 1980s on north and central Walthall County farmland thats been in the family since the 1800s. When Katrina came through, we lost about 75 percent of the acreage. Were just now recovering on the timber farm, nine years later, he said. We wanted to find something that would recover quickly or not be damaged at all. Melican said, Ive never heard of anyone losing tea with a typhoon in China. McDonalds May 2012 visit to a tea farm in Charleston piqued his interest, as soon as he heard the tea plant was a camellia. High heat, humidity, acidic soil and plenty of rain, well, thats pretty much a match with conditions back home. It went from, Gee, lets see if we can do this, to reaching out to people like Nigel for a plan to take this crazy idea to a model and successful fruition. The tea farm is destined for the family homestead in Lincoln County on land once used for cattle production. Teacraft Ltd. managing director Melican, from England, has worked in 26 different tea countries, helping growers improve production, optimize factories and troubleshoot problems. The opportunity to help a new tea grower in the states was one that was too good to miss. If you throw money at tea, you make it grow almost anywhere, he says. But Americas high labor cost, far above that of India, China and countries in Africa, is a hang-up, and the international tea industry has been slow to mechanize. But Japan, which has mechanized, provides a model. Melican said, Id like to make it clear, Im not just throwing money at tea ... Its guided throwing, Melican clarifies, with mechanization and the specialty market as key, suiting the trend for quality specialty teas of known origin, with a good story, sustainably produced. The BMW and Mercedes end of the tea market. McDonald illustrates the target with a tray of top-flight teas in tins, their aroma an inviting tease. Melican describes the potential. Itll be a tea which, first of all, you will buy to indulge as a luxury. Youll buy it to impress your friends. Youll fall in love with it, he says. Youll drink it when youre feeling low and you want to cheer yourself up. ... Then of course, you will start to drink it more often, and it will become a habit. A lot of tea is sold on its story. McDonalds is steeped in history, with family ties stretching back to Daniel Boone and John C. Calhoun, vice president to John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson, and live oaks on the site that came from seedlings grown from Beauvoir oaks. The boutique tea farm or tea garden, as that size is known will have some commodity tea (secondary grades) as well, for bulk tea and ready-to-drink sweet tea. In addition to specialty markets, McDonalds plan includes a shop on the farm, with tea sold, too, through the website, www.greatmsteacompany. com. Tea fans can keep up with developments there and on its Facebook page. At present, hes got about 30,000 Mississippi tea garden in the works Grower eyeing upscale specialty market See TEA / Page E5 WOODContinued from Page E10 One quality that immediately sets Babas wood apart from a lower-end board is its size, 12 to 18 inches wide and an inch thick. If it didnt come from a barn itself, it might come from old growth wood stored inside the barn, maybe only 50 years old but just as thick. News notes tend to run one week prior to the date of an event. During the busy season, expect notes to run no more than twice.

DEANFOSDICK Associated PressSmoothies are a nutritious way to stir things up in the kitchen, especially if the ingredients come from your garden. Few drinks are as refreshing as fresh or frozen fruits and syrups mixed with milk and yogurt. Many people also add greens. Follow the harvest and work with whatever is ripening, said Nan Chase, who with DeNeice Guest wrote the new Drink the Harvest (Storey Publishing). We get into canning. The starting point is with the juices. Smoothies are easy to make. All thats required is a blender, some liquid (milk, juices or water), ice cubes (or ice cream), yogurt, fruits and greens. Strawberries, blueberries, peaches and blackberries are great smoothie ingredients because they have a long shelf life when preserved, Chase said.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, AUGUST17, 2014E13 E4SUNDAY, AUGUST17, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE CENTURY 21 J.W.

plants, with about 200 in the ground. This fall, hell plant 3 acres, following with another 4 acres the next spring. About 170 acres (4,000-5,000 plants an acre) are needed for the factory (three years out, timed with the first harvest). They projected first sales of selected small amounts in 2017, with full production in 2020-21. All tea green, black, white, oolong comes from the camellia sinensis species. Its just a matter of how its processed. Others are interested, too, particularly with plants survival after one of the coldest winters in memory. That always was the question of a crop grown in tropical areas surviving the cold, and they pulled right through, McDonald says. Research on tea farming in Mississippi, supported by Mississippi State University and a grant from Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce through USDA Specialty Crop Program, is in progress; McDonalds farm and Teacraft are industry collaborators in the effort. We really dont know what insects might feed on the tea; we dont know what diseases might arise, says Judson LeCompte, MSU graduate research assistant. Weve just got to find those issues and find those cultivars that work best here. With similar growing conditions, it might be a good fit for our blueberry growers as well. Already 400-500 plants and about five years into that exploration is J&D Blueberry Farm in Poplarville. Partner Donald van de Werken, spurred by mention on horticulturist Felder Rushings radio show, followed up with his own research via Google. The issue here now is, I still dont know how to process it correctly, says van de Werken, who met recently with the Great Mississippi Tea Co. and MSU for advice, inviting other blueberry growers along. Hes propagating and collecting seed; next step is to set aside more acreage. His aim, too, is to turn it into an agritourism operation and commercial venture. It sounds viable, van de Werken says. Camellia bushes grow here like nothing. Were excited about it. And, it can take several cuttings. It gives some sustainability for us as growers. The farmers in Mississippi can grow anything. Its just the art of learning how to make that tea.

Ron McEvoyRE/MAX Realty One. We can use them any time of year, she said. Syrups are a big component of what you can do with the juices. You gain a lot from a little when blending syrups into smoothies, Chase said. We find that you get a significant amount of concentrated flavor and you dont need an 8-ounce glass. Just a quarter cup can provide the necessary (daily) nutrient load for fruit. Some suggestions from Colorado State University Extension for enhancing the flavor and nutritional punch of smoothies: Boost the amount of dietary fiber by leaving on the fruit skins (except bananas). Nuts and seeds, along with nut and seed butters (like peanut butter), contribute protein, fiber, antioxidants, nutrients and heart-healthy unsaturated fats. Try green smoothies for variety. You can use raw, leafy garden vegetables like kale, spinach, collard greens and Swiss chard. Avocados, parsley, fennel, broccoli, carrots, radishes or celery can be added to fruit smoothies for an enriched natural sweetness. Go organic with your gardening and wash all produce thoroughly to help prevent food-borne illnesses. Use whatever is in your herb garden, Chase said. Bay leaf and basil can infuse drinks (when boiled down) with a smoky flavor. They give drinks just a little depth without being overpowering. If you dont have a garden, try a farmers market for fresh ingredients, or do some foraging outdoors. You can come home with a lot of different kinds of produce if you take a container along while hiking, Chase said. We actually like prickly pear cactus juice.

Many homeowners like to plant shade trees as specimens in lawns, to frame a home and to shade buildings. New trees are usually small plants in easy-to-handle pots. Careful consideration should be given to the mature size of the tree species, its brittleness, wind resistance and if it is evergreen or deciduous in winter. A clump of River Birch, Betula nigra,with three to five trunks eventually reaches 40 to 80 feet tall with a 20 to 40 foot spread. If planted to shade a building, it should be 6 to 10 feet away. Rain runoff from the roof will provide extra water, so River Birch can grow more than 25 feet tall in just four years. Branches will have to be eliminated on the building side until 10 feet above the roof eaves. As this species sheds its leaves for winter, the weaker winter sun can warm the building. In summer, River Birch can provide dense shade over walls and roofs. Trees planted as lawn specimens should have at least 3 feet of grass-free ground surrounding the trunk.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday the nationwide average for a 30-year loan slipped to 4.12 percent from 4.14 percent last week. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, fell to 3.24 percent from 3.27 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. Mortgage rates often follow the yield on the 10-year Treasury note. The 10-year note traded at 2.42 percent Wednesday, brushing its low for the year of 2.41 percent and down from 2.47 percent a week earlier. It fell to 2.38 percent in trading Thursday morning. At 4.12 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, which are intended to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The purchases are set to end in October. 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 0.6 point, down from 0.7 point last week. The fee for a 15-year mortgage was unchanged at 0.6 point. The average rate on a five-year adjustable-rate mortgage edged down to 2.97 percent from 2.98 percent. The fee remained at 0.5 point. Both painting, edition of Playboy of interest to collectors Dear John: Does this painting, photos attached, by French artist Charles Cobelle have any value? I have been told that it is an original painting. I doubt if this next piece has any value, but today while going through stored boxes I found a 1985 last stapled issue of Playboy magazine. It still is in the original mailing wrapper. R.M., Citrus Springs Dear R.M.: Charles Cobelle, 1902-94, was a prolific French artist who produced a wide range of paintings, original prints, and watercolors of landscapes, Paris street scenes, circus subjects, harbor, marine scenes and more. His paintings have sold as high as $2,500; most sell in the mid-hundreds. If your woodland landscape picture is a painting, it would sell below $500 currently. There is a good chance interest in his pictures will increase over time. Playboy magazines are a category of collector interest. It is good the issue is still in the wrapper; it will make a difference relative to potential dollar value in the future. Keep it safe for now. Dear John: I bought the pitcher in the attached photo last year on a trip to Amsterdam. It is 8 inches high and 7 inches across the widest part. On the bottom it says Bergen. The antiques dealer said it was about a hundred years old and made in Holland. I think it has an Art Deco feel to it and the colors are really vibrant. I thought it made a perfect souvenir.

No matter what, I will always love it, but did the dealer tell me the truth? What can you tell me about it? L.F.R., Internet Dear L.F.R.: Yes, your attractive Art Deco pitcher is close to if not 100 years old. It was likely made in the Gouda area of The Netherlands. From the 17th to well into the 20th century, Dutch potters produced brightly decorated hollowware that has been a category of interest for a long time. Stylized florals, birds, and geometrics were popular subjects. To get such a decorative piece for less than $100 was a good buy and a real Dutch souvenir. Dear John: I have a painting given to me about 10 to 15 yearsago and would like to know if it has any particular value. I am not good at reading signatures. A short while ago you suggested I send a photo, I hope this helps. The frame has a stamp, Hecho en Mexico. The painting is 20 by 24 inches. I am downsizing and would like to sell it if there might be a market for it. B.S., Internet Dear B.S.: I was not able to interpret the signature on the painting. Impressionist French paintings of street scenes are popular. I think the one you have was produced within the past 40 to 50 years, long after the original period. Potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can. Dear John: My husband and I have been reading your column in antiques and collectibles for a long time. We recently sold our homestead in Ohio and moved some things down here to Crystal River. After opening one of the boxes, we discovered several pieces of jewelry purchased on a visit to Taxco, Mexico. My husband seems to recall that you have mentioned Mexican-made sterling silver jewelry in one of your articles, or perhaps it was on your radio show. Anyway, we wonder if you can tell us if there is any interest or not. N.M., Internet Dear N.M.: Quite a few years back I spoke about the future potential interest in Mexican-made sterling silver jewelry. Since then, the collecting interest has continued to increase. Most of the jewelry is marked and often signed by the designer. I would be glad to help you further.

Springsteen contacted him through an architect, who asked that the travel-averse Grumette come personally to New Jersey. When Grumette backed off, the countrys most famous rock star called him personally, telling him, Jon, youre the mystery floor man. You need to come up here. He packed his bags. He was a very nice man, Grumette, 69, said. He said, We just want to do something beautiful. Grumettes mill at Baba sits on a 90-acre patch of woods outside Pittsboro a slowly created campus that calls to mind, on a smaller scale, the private think tanks of 19th-century inventors: Thomas Edisons Glenmont or Frank Lloyd Wrights Oak Park. Coming in the driveway, you pass a pair of giant granite boulders Grumette had moved to the entrance, one on each side. Further in on the campus, a large lake sits on the left with a fishing pier. Grumette had that dug, and he imagines floating a houseboat there one day. Then the mill itself appears, an open-air shelter the size of a high school gymnasium, slabs of wood stacked 15 feet high. The scent of freshly cut wood hangs in the air, drawing wasps and hornets. Until recently, Babas planer dated to 1934, a green model from Boston with The Planers of the Woods stamped on its side. Its modern replacement is only 10 or 12 years old. Babas office consists of a single rectangular room walled with floorto-ceiling glass, floored with unfinished heart pine planks 21 feet long. A boulder serves for a step at the door. Down a trail through the woods, Grumette constructed his bathroom by the same design: floorto-ceiling glass on three sides, open air on the fourth, facing the lake. We tried to create an atmosphere so people would say they love to come work, and they do, said Grumette, who employs about 18 people. Theres never any backbiting. His sales and marketing representative, Myra Hogan, found her way to Babas campus after working for a competitor in Los Angeles and losing a sale to the strange little company in Pittsboro. When she moved to the area, she came asking around, curious. They seemed like neat people, she said. Grumette came south from Philadelphia in 1972, an architect with a pair of Ivy League degrees. He followed his first wife in her social work career and started out building hand-crafted homes until a friends phone call changed his life. This friend called to say he knew where to get a load of antique heart pine lumber in South Carolina, cheap. Did Grumette have any money? Well, said Grumette, then a young man. I can get $6,000 off a MasterCard ... They drove south, picked up the wood and unloaded it quickly. This was the thick heart pine that went inside the brownstones of Brooklyn, that helped build the Brooklyn Bridge harvested so extensively that it has practically vanished. We made $50,000 in one week, Grumette said, chuckling. And it never happened again. So we got suckered in. Now oak is the favored wood, and occasionally chestnut. Grumette doesnt fetch it himself any more, relying instead on two main suppliers in Virginia and a string of smaller ones in North Carolina. In the old days, farmers were happy to have their hulks hauled off for free. Now they charge up to $10,000. And while that $50,000 week might have qualified as beginners luck, Baba is thriving as a high-end supplier of original surface wood flooring, selling for as much as $40 a square foot. We deal with really rich people, Grumette said. Houses with two people in it and five or six laundry rooms, six or seven washers. The idea is you dont ever have to wait for a second load. But very nice people. And though Manhattan forms the core of his clientele, you can see Baba flooring locally, particularly at the Oakleaf restaurant in Pittsboro. Built inside the mill that once made silk labels, Oakleafs floors are tobacco barn heart pine from Durham. Im standing on it right now, chef Brendan Cox said. This product is some of the best Ive seen, and theyre local. So it was a no-brainer for us. WOODContinued from Page E8 See WOOD/ Page E14 Investors Realty of Citrus County, Inc.

Hed pull them down with a crowbar, and sometimes the old wrecks would collapse around his head. Other times, he would breathe enough bat guano to choke. Every time, he came home filthy, covered in dust, for the sake of his prize. I got farmers lung one year, he explained. It was dirty, dangerous work. Thirty years later, Grumette finds himself in the Chatham County woods, working inside a glass cube, selling antique wood floors to well-to-do customers including Bruce Springsteen. At Baba, the company he named after the Indian spiritual master he follows, the recycled wood is hand-sanded and fumed to deepen its color. Grumettes oak and pine boards deck the penthouses of Manhattan, the tech-money mansions of Seattle and the homes of Hollywood big shots, all of it culled from empty tobacco barns and mills gone dormant. Grumettes story speaks to the worlds unlikely curiosities: Americas richest now line their floors with pieces of the countrys agricultural past, much of it collected on North Carolina back roads.

Hed pull them down with a crowbar, and sometimes the old wrecks would collapse around his head. Other times, he would breathe enough bat guano to choke. Every time, he came home filthy, covered in dust, for the sake of his prize. I got farmers lung one year, he explained. It was dirty, dangerous work. Thirty years later, Grumette finds himself in the Chatham County woods, working inside a glass cube, selling antique wood floors to well-to-do customers including Bruce Springsteen. At Baba, the company he named after the Indian spiritual master he follows, the recycled wood is hand-sanded and fumed to deepen its color. Grumettes oak and pine boards deck the penthouses of Manhattan, the tech-money mansions of Seattle and the homes of Hollywood big shots, all of it culled from empty tobacco barns and mills gone dormant. Grumettes story speaks to the worlds unlikely curiosities: Americas richest now line their floors with pieces of the countrys agricultural past, much of it collected on North Carolina back roads.

No matter what, I will always love it, but did the dealer tell me the truth? What can you tell me about it? L.F.R., Internet Dear L.F.R.: Yes, your attractive Art Deco pitcher is close to if not 100 years old. It was likely made in the Gouda area of The Netherlands. From the 17th to well into the 20th century, Dutch potters produced brightly decorated hollowware that has been a category of interest for a long time. Stylized florals, birds, and geometrics were popular subjects. To get such a decorative piece for less than $100 was a good buy and a real Dutch souvenir. Dear John: I have a painting given to me about 10 to 15 yearsago and would like to know if it has any particular value. I am not good at reading signatures. A short while ago you suggested I send a photo, I hope this helps. The frame has a stamp, Hecho en Mexico. The painting is 20 by 24 inches. I am downsizing and would like to sell it if there might be a market for it. B.S., Internet Dear B.S.: I was not able to interpret the signature on the painting. Impressionist French paintings of street scenes are popular. I think the one you have was produced within the past 40 to 50 years, long after the original period. Potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can. Dear John: My husband and I have been reading your column in antiques and collectibles for a long time. We recently sold our homestead in Ohio and moved some things down here to Crystal River. After opening one of the boxes, we discovered several pieces of jewelry purchased on a visit to Taxco, Mexico. My husband seems to recall that you have mentioned Mexican-made sterling silver jewelry in one of your articles, or perhaps it was on your radio show. Anyway, we wonder if you can tell us if there is any interest or not. N.M., Internet Dear N.M.: Quite a few years back I spoke about the future potential interest in Mexican-made sterling silver jewelry. Since then, the collecting interest has continued to increase. Most of the jewelry is marked and often signed by the designer. I would be glad to help you further. Take good, clear photos and make sure to examine the back side of each piece and include all the information you find.John Sikorski has been a professional in the antiques business for 30 years.

Springsteen contacted him through an architect, who asked that the travel-averse Grumette come personally to New Jersey. When Grumette backed off, the countrys most famous rock star called him personally, telling him, Jon, youre the mystery floor man. You need to come up here. He packed his bags. He was a very nice man, Grumette, 69, said. He said, We just want to do something beautiful. Grumettes mill at Baba sits on a 90-acre patch of woods outside Pittsboro a slowly created campus that calls to mind, on a smaller scale, the private think tanks of 19th-century inventors: Thomas Edisons Glenmont or Frank Lloyd Wrights Oak Park. Coming in the driveway, you pass a pair of giant granite boulders Grumette had moved to the entrance, one on each side. Further in on the campus, a large lake sits on the left with a fishing pier. Grumette had that dug, and he imagines floating a houseboat there one day. Then the mill itself appears, an open-air shelter the size of a high school gymnasium, slabs of wood stacked 15 feet high. The scent of freshly cut wood hangs in the air, drawing wasps and hornets. Until recently, Babas planer dated to 1934, a green model from Boston with The Planers of the Woods stamped on its side. Its modern replacement is only 10 or 12 years old. Babas office consists of a single rectangular room walled with floorto-ceiling glass, floored with unfinished heart pine planks 21 feet long. A boulder serves for a step at the door. Down a trail through the woods, Grumette constructed his bathroom by the same design: floorto-ceiling glass on three sides, open air on the fourth, facing the lake. We tried to create an atmosphere so people would say they love to come work, and they do, said Grumette, who employs about 18 people. Theres never any backbiting. His sales and marketing representative, Myra Hogan, found her way to Babas campus after working for a competitor in Los Angeles and losing a sale to the strange little company in Pittsboro. When she moved to the area, she came asking around, curious. They seemed like neat people, she said. Grumette came south from Philadelphia in 1972, an architect with a pair of Ivy League degrees. He followed his first wife in her social work career and started out building hand-crafted homes until a friends phone call changed his life. This friend called to say he knew where to get a load of antique heart pine lumber in South Carolina, cheap. Did Grumette have any money? Well, said Grumette, then a young man. I can get $6,000 off a MasterCard ... They drove south, picked up the wood and unloaded it quickly. This was the thick heart pine that went inside the brownstones of Brooklyn, that helped build the Brooklyn Bridge harvested so extensively that it has practically vanished. We made $50,000 in one week, Grumette said, chuckling. And it never happened again. So we got suckered in. Now oak is the favored wood, and occasionally chestnut. Grumette doesnt fetch it himself any more, relying instead on two main suppliers in Virginia and a string of smaller ones in North Carolina. In the old days, farmers were happy to have their hulks hauled off for free. Now they charge up to $10,000. And while that $50,000 week might have qualified as beginners luck, Baba is thriving as a high-end supplier of original surface wood flooring, selling for as much as $40 a square foot. We deal with really rich people, Grumette said. Houses with two people in it and five or six laundry rooms, six or seven washers. The idea is you dont ever have to wait for a second load. But very nice people. And though Manhattan forms the core of his clientele, you can see Baba flooring locally, particularly at the Oakleaf restaurant in Pittsboro. Built inside the mill that once made silk labels, Oakleafs floors are tobacco barn heart pine from Durham. Im standing on it right now, chef Brendan Cox said. This product is some of the best Ive seen, and theyre local. So it was a no-brainer for us. WOODContinued from Page E8 See WOOD/ Page E14 Investors Realty of Citrus County, Inc.

Many homeowners like to plant shade trees as specimens in lawns, to frame a home and to shade buildings. New trees are usually small plants in easy-to-handle pots. Careful consideration should be given to the mature size of the tree species, its brittleness, wind resistance and if it is evergreen or deciduous in winter. A clump of River Birch, Betula nigra,with three to five trunks eventually reaches 40 to 80 feet tall with a 20 to 40 foot spread. If planted to shade a building, it should be 6 to 10 feet away. Rain runoff from the roof will provide extra water, so River Birch can grow more than 25 feet tall in just four years. Branches will have to be eliminated on the building side until 10 feet above the roof eaves. As this species sheds its leaves for winter, the weaker winter sun can warm the building. In summer, River Birch can provide dense shade over walls and roofs. Trees planted as lawn specimens should have at least 3 feet of grass-free ground surrounding the trunk.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday the nationwide average for a 30-year loan slipped to 4.12 percent from 4.14 percent last week. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, fell to 3.24 percent from 3.27 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. Mortgage rates often follow the yield on the 10-year Treasury note. The 10-year note traded at 2.42 percent Wednesday, brushing its low for the year of 2.41 percent and down from 2.47 percent a week earlier. It fell to 2.38 percent in trading Thursday morning. At 4.12 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, which are intended to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The purchases are set to end in October. 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 0.6 point, down from 0.7 point last week. The fee for a 15-year mortgage was unchanged at 0.6 point. The average rate on a five-year adjustable-rate mortgage edged down to 2.97 percent from 2.98 percent. The fee remained at 0.5 point. Both painting, edition of Playboy of interest to collectors Dear John: Does this painting, photos attached, by French artist Charles Cobelle have any value? I have been told that it is an original painting. I doubt if this next piece has any value, but today while going through stored boxes I found a 1985 last stapled issue of Playboy magazine. It still is in the original mailing wrapper. R.M., Citrus Springs Dear R.M.: Charles Cobelle, 1902-94, was a prolific French artist who produced a wide range of paintings, original prints, and watercolors of landscapes, Paris street scenes, circus subjects, harbor, marine scenes and more. His paintings have sold as high as $2,500; most sell in the mid-hundreds. If your woodland landscape picture is a painting, it would sell below $500 currently. There is a good chance interest in his pictures will increase over time. Playboy magazines are a category of collector interest. It is good the issue is still in the wrapper; it will make a difference relative to potential dollar value in the future. Keep it safe for now. Dear John: I bought the pitcher in the attached photo last year on a trip to Amsterdam. It is 8 inches high and 7 inches across the widest part. On the bottom it says Bergen. The antiques dealer said it was about a hundred years old and made in Holland. I think it has an Art Deco feel to it and the colors are really vibrant. I thought it made a perfect souvenir.

About 170 acres (4,000-5,000 plants an acre) are needed for the factory (three years out, timed with the first harvest). They projected first sales of selected small amounts in 2017, with full production in 2020-21. All tea green, black, white, oolong comes from the camellia sinensis species. Its just a matter of how its processed. Others are interested, too, particularly with plants survival after one of the coldest winters in memory. That always was the question of a crop grown in tropical areas surviving the cold, and they pulled right through, McDonald says. Research on tea farming in Mississippi, supported by Mississippi State University and a grant from Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce through USDA Specialty Crop Program, is in progress; McDonalds farm and Teacraft are industry collaborators in the effort. We really dont know what insects might feed on the tea; we dont know what diseases might arise, says Judson LeCompte, MSU graduate research assistant. Weve just got to find those issues and find those cultivars that work best here. With similar growing conditions, it might be a good fit for our blueberry growers as well. Already 400-500 plants and about five years into that exploration is J&D Blueberry Farm in Poplarville. Partner Donald van de Werken, spurred by mention on horticulturist Felder Rushings radio show, followed up with his own research via Google. The issue here now is, I still dont know how to process it correctly, says van de Werken, who met recently with the Great Mississippi Tea Co. and MSU for advice, inviting other blueberry growers along. Hes propagating and collecting seed; next step is to set aside more acreage. His aim, too, is to turn it into an agritourism operation and commercial venture. It sounds viable, van de Werken says. Camellia bushes grow here like nothing. Were excited about it. And, it can take several cuttings. It gives some sustainability for us as growers. The farmers in Mississippi can grow anything. Its just the art of learning how to make that tea.

Ron McEvoyRE/MAX Realty One. We can use them any time of year, she said. Syrups are a big component of what you can do with the juices. You gain a lot from a little when blending syrups into smoothies, Chase said. We find that you get a significant amount of concentrated flavor and you dont need an 8-ounce glass. Just a quarter cup can provide the necessary (daily) nutrient load for fruit. Some suggestions from Colorado State University Extension for enhancing the flavor and nutritional punch of smoothies: Boost the amount of dietary fiber by leaving on the fruit skins (except bananas). Nuts and seeds, along with nut and seed butters (like peanut butter), contribute protein, fiber, antioxidants, nutrients and heart-healthy unsaturated fats. Try green smoothies for variety. You can use raw, leafy garden vegetables like kale, spinach, collard greens and Swiss chard. Avocados, parsley, fennel, broccoli, carrots, radishes or celery can be added to fruit smoothies for an enriched natural sweetness. Go organic with your gardening and wash all produce thoroughly to help prevent food-borne illnesses. Use whatever is in your herb garden, Chase said. Bay leaf and basil can infuse drinks (when boiled down) with a smoky flavor. They give drinks just a little depth without being overpowering. If you dont have a garden, try a farmers market for fresh ingredients, or do some foraging outdoors. You can come home with a lot of different kinds of produce if you take a container along while hiking, Chase said. We actually like prickly pear cactus juice.

DEANFOSDICK Associated PressSmoothies are a nutritious way to stir things up in the kitchen, especially if the ingredients come from your garden. Few drinks are as refreshing as fresh or frozen fruits and syrups mixed with milk and yogurt. Many people also add greens. Follow the harvest and work with whatever is ripening, said Nan Chase, who with DeNeice Guest wrote the new Drink the Harvest (Storey Publishing). We get into canning. The starting point is with the juices. Smoothies are easy to make. All thats required is a blender, some liquid (milk, juices or water), ice cubes (or ice cream), yogurt, fruits and greens. Strawberries, blueberries, peaches and blackberries are great smoothie ingredients because they have a long shelf life when preserved, Chase said.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, AUGUST17, 2014E13 E4SUNDAY, AUGUST17, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE CENTURY 21 J.W.

Sammy Ortiz started working at his uncles company 17 years ago, not long after finishing at UNC-Wilmington, and he, too, started out taking down barns with a crowbar. Now he runs the mills daily operations as a vice president with a T-shirt, ball cap and thick beard, his hands stained brown from work. One quality that immediately sets Babas wood apart from a lower-end board is its size, 12 to 18 inches wide and an inch thick. If it didnt come from a barn itself, it might come from old growth wood stored inside the barn, maybe only 50 years old but just as thick. These farmers saved everything, Ortiz explained. Another feature is the woods surface. Baba doesnt plane the surfaces, cutting only from the bottom until it gets to the right length. The tops of boards are each hand-sanded, then fumed with ammonia to pull out tannic acids and darken the wood. If you took a piece of regular oak and let it sit 100 years, Ortiz said, thats what were doing with this fuming process. After that, all the knotholes and other imperfections are stuffed with round plugs and rectangular chunks called splines. That way, Baba can use longer boards without having to cut around the holes. If a high heel can go in it, its too big, said Ortiz, explaining the rule. All around him, the lumber sits stacked 15 feet high, bygone barns waiting their turn. Among its references, Baba lists the owners of Starbucks and Chanel. Bunny Williams, celebrated interior designer, endorses their floors. Ronald S. Lauder, billionaire son of the Estee Lauder cosmetics family, wrote this letter: Dear Jonathan, I should have told you long before now how much Jo Carole and I love the floors. They add so much to the wonderful feeling of the rooms, and they fit into the dcor as though they have always been there. But Grumette still calls his turn in reclaimed wood a happy accident, a chance to turn the unused into something vital, the unwanted into treasure. Clients dont just want it to look pretty. They want it to tell a story. That was the case for a top executive at Costco. When Baba put in his floors, Ortiz said, the curious client asked exactly where it came from. He enjoyed hearing of its history as a tobacco warehouse, and just for an extra kick, Ortiz told him what now stands in its place. Its a Costco now, he said. He was tickled by that.

Raindrops bead on the green leaves of thousands of young plants in the shade nursery at the Great Mississippi Tea Co. in Brookhaven, a glistening endorsement of Jason McDonalds plan for land where cattle once roamed. Healthy little plant, tea consultant Nigel Melican observes, picking one up for a closer look. In two years, youll be plucking that for tea. A steaming cup of comfort from these leaves is still a bit down the road, but thats the goal Mississippi-made specialty tea, an agritourism draw and a crop that wont get wiped out by a hurricane. Tourists, too, are still a year or two away, McDonald says. McDonalds family has been timber farming since the early 1980s on north and central Walthall County farmland thats been in the family since the 1800s. When Katrina came through, we lost about 75 percent of the acreage. Were just now recovering on the timber farm, nine years later, he said. We wanted to find something that would recover quickly or not be damaged at all. Melican said, Ive never heard of anyone losing tea with a typhoon in China. McDonalds May 2012 visit to a tea farm in Charleston piqued his interest, as soon as he heard the tea plant was a camellia. High heat, humidity, acidic soil and plenty of rain, well, thats pretty much a match with conditions back home. It went from, Gee, lets see if we can do this, to reaching out to people like Nigel for a plan to take this crazy idea to a model and successful fruition. The tea farm is destined for the family homestead in Lincoln County on land once used for cattle production. Teacraft Ltd. managing director Melican, from England, has worked in 26 different tea countries, helping growers improve production, optimize factories and troubleshoot problems. The opportunity to help a new tea grower in the states was one that was too good to miss. If you throw money at tea, you make it grow almost anywhere, he says. But Americas high labor cost, far above that of India, China and countries in Africa, is a hang-up, and the international tea industry has been slow to mechanize. But Japan, which has mechanized, provides a model. Melican said, Id like to make it clear, Im not just throwing money at tea ... Its guided throwing, Melican clarifies, with mechanization and the specialty market as key, suiting the trend for quality specialty teas of known origin, with a good story, sustainably produced. The BMW and Mercedes end of the tea market. McDonald illustrates the target with a tray of top-flight teas in tins, their aroma an inviting tease. Melican describes the potential. Itll be a tea which, first of all, you will buy to indulge as a luxury. Youll buy it to impress your friends. Youll fall in love with it, he says. Youll drink it when youre feeling low and you want to cheer yourself up. ... Then of course, you will start to drink it more often, and it will become a habit. A lot of tea is sold on its story. McDonalds is steeped in history, with family ties stretching back to Daniel Boone and John C. Calhoun, vice president to John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson, and live oaks on the site that came from seedlings grown from Beauvoir oaks. The boutique tea farm or tea garden, as that size is known will have some commodity tea (secondary grades) as well, for bulk tea and ready-to-drink sweet tea. In addition to specialty markets, McDonalds plan includes a shop on the farm, with tea sold, too, through the website, www.greatmsteacompany. com. Tea fans can keep up with developments there and on its Facebook page. At present, hes got about 30,000 Mississippi tea garden in the works Grower eyeing upscale specialty market See TEA / Page E5 WOODContinued from Page E10 One quality that immediately sets Babas wood apart from a lower-end board is its size, 12 to 18 inches wide and an inch thick. If it didnt come from a barn itself, it might come from old growth wood stored inside the barn, maybe only 50 years old but just as thick. News notes tend to run one week prior to the date of an event. During the busy season, expect notes to run no more than twice.

T omika Spires-Hanssen 352-586-6598 REDUCED REDUCED and eliminates the need for a weed whacker. Shed leaves can be blown or raked onto the tree ring as decorative top mulch. Hand gathered pine needles are excellent to deter weed seeds from sprouting. For the first few years of a saplings life, always prune off lower branches while they are small so the tree will grow taller faster. The resulting canopy will be higher. Prune at the thickened branch collar and leave no stubs. The tree will heal over quickly from the undamaged collar. Prune annually until the first branch is at least 10 feet high. Branches need to be kept above foot and vehicle traffic. Keep in mind that branches sag with age. As trees mature and provide a wide shady canopy, grass below will die due to lack of sunlight. Weeds may invade the surrounding ring. These can be pulled while young or killed with a 3 percent to 5 percent glyphosate solution, a non-restricted herbicide. An alternate solution is to install shade-tolerant plants. Study the base of the tree trunk to see where thick roots are radiating. Try probing with a spike to find spaces between the large anchoring roots where small potted plants could be planted. Choose three to five shrubs that will mature to about 3 to 5 feet diameter. Shrubs planted 3 feet from the trunk should have enough space and light to thrive. Be aware the established tree roots will be absorbing the rain water and nutrients. You may need to irrigate understory plants and supply time-released fertilizer annually. Azaleas can flower in shady tree rings. Study the internet then choose Encore azaleas with the fixed mature height and diameter you want. After selecting the appropriate height, then decide on a color. Patented Encores are worth the extra money, as they repeat-bloom from September to March rather than the three to four weeks of older varieties. Beneath a River Birch planted to shade the west wall and roof of my garage, I planted an Autumn Cheer and three Autumn Angle Encore Azaleas. Both will mature only 3 feet high and about 3 feet diameter. The little azaleas are 3.5 feet apart. In the spaces between are Queen Mum agapanthus bulbs which will also flower in shade, but not until June or July. Florida violets and native rain lilies are filling in as a selfseeding ground cover. Coonties, Zamia pumila, a native cycad, grow well in tree rings. Coonties tolerate full sun in winter and dense shade in summer beneath shade trees. Volunteer Friends of Dunnellon Public Library recently planted 40 mature male coonties in 12 tree rings scattered around the parking lot. After the first month, Coonties need only a quart of water weekly as they become established.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.
