Citrus County voters elected Scott Carnahan to the county commission in District 4 while Republicans knocked board Chairman John JJ Kenney out of office in favor of former Crystal River mayor Ron Kitchen, who faces no-party affiliation candidate Michael Joey White in the November election. School board incumbents Thomas Kennedy, Sandy Balfour and Linda Powers all were elected to office. Kennedy finished with enough votes in the three-way race to avoid a November runoff. Former Citrus County sheriffs captain Doug Dodd did the same, elected to District 3 on the school board with 57 percent. In the 5th Judicial Circuit judicial race, incumbent Sandy Kautz was knocked from office. Mary Hatcher was by far the top vote-getter in the five-county circuit and will face Denise Dymond Lyn in the Nov. 4 general election. Voter turnout was 37 percent for Republicans, 28 percent for Democrats and 28 percent overall.

With 59 percent of the vote Balfour, 56, of Lecanto, was elected to the District 4 seat. Balfour, who was unsuccessful in a 2012 bid for superintendent of schools losing to the incumbent was appointed to the school board in June 2013 by Gov. Rick Scott after freshman board member Susan Hale ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerTen-year Citrus County School Board incumbent Linda Powers said she wasnt going to retire until her to-do list was complete and she wont have to. With 56 percent of the vote, Powers, 70, of Inverness, was reelected in the District 5 race for the third term against her challenger, Donna Fletcher, who received 44 percent of the vote.

Carnahan, a lifelong Citrus resident and Crystal River High School graduate, received 53 percent of the vote in District 4 to join his friend Scott Adams on the county commission. Words cant describe it, Carnahan said Tuesday night while enjoying a cold beer outside Coachs Pub & Eatery in downtown Inverness. Im humbled to know residents voted for me. Both Carnahan and former Crystal River mayor Ron Kitchen, who won the Republican primary in District 2 (see related story), were buoyed by a $79,684 campaign against Webb and board Chairman John JJ Kenney funded by Charlie Strange, a friend and business associate of Adams. Carnahan said he didnt think the outside help made any difference in his race. People just wanted a change, he said. Webb, who served four years on the commission before embarking on an unsuccessful run for sheriff in 2012, said he couldnt overcome Stranges Save Citrus County mail pieces and other advertising. A lot of people believe what they get in the mail, he said. I didnt have the money to counter it. It was all I could do to raise $30,000. Webb said he believes Carnahan will be a twin to Adams MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS What didnt happen two years ago for Ron Kitchen Jr. happened Tuesday. Kitchen, the former Crystal River mayor, easily topped the pack of four candidates to win the Republican primary for county commission District 2. In doing so, he knocks board Chairman John JJ Kenney off the county commission. He also could join Dennis Damato, the senior commission member, who defeated Kitchen in 2012. Im overwhelmed, to tell the truth, Kitchen said Tuesday night. Im humbled that voters have given me their trust. Its still sinking in. I have a big job to do. The first thing Kitchen must do is win the November election. He faces no-party affiliation candidate Michael Joey White. Kitchen said he already is receiving phone calls from people wanting to donate to his campaign. Kitchen received 46 percent of the vote. Kenney was a distant second with 31 percent. Kenney, the former Citrus County veterans service office, said he believed the driving force was the $79,684 attack campaign waged by Charlie Strange, a friend and business associate of Commissioner Scott Adams. Kenney said he never attempted to counter the attack ads and mail pieces. We can walk away with our Scott Carnahandefeated former commissioner Winn Webb in District 4.

For theRECORD Associated PressFORT LAUDERDALE Former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist won the Democratic primary to challenge Republican Gov. Rick Scott on Tuesday, marking another step in an unlikely political comeback four years after leaving the GOP Crist defeated Nan Rich, a former Senate Democratic leader who has been campaigning for governor longer than Crist has been a Democrat. He is the first person in Florida to win the nomination for governor as a Republican and a Democrat. With 39 percent of the precincts counted, Crist had 75 percent to 25 percent for Rich. He now faces Scott and Libertarian Adrian Wyllie in a race thats already been highly negative. Scott anticipated a Crist victory and has already spent millions of dollars in ads attacking him for political flip-flops, supporting President Barack Obamas health care overhaul and his decision to run for Senate instead of a second term as governor as the states economy tanked. Congratulations! Its a wonderful night! Crist said as he hugged his running mate, Annette Taddeo, after Rich called Crist to concede the race minutes after the polls closed. Crist said the strong showing is a sign that Democrats believe in him despite the fact that hes new to the party. Frankly, I think I was on their side when I was in the other party, Crist said as he prepared for his victory speech. He said a friend once told him, Charlie, youve been a Democrat your whole life, you just didnt know it. Well now I know it. Crist was also focused on Scott leading up to the primary, refusing to debate Rich while reminding voters that Scott is a former hospital chain CEO who ran a company that paid a $1.7 billion settlement for Medicaid fraud. Crist, 58, has won three statewide races as a Republican, and it wasnt that long ago that he called himself a Ronald Reagan/Jeb Bush Republican. He was once considered a potential running mate for 2008 Republican presidential nominee John McCain. He also had the backing of GOP leaders in a 2010 bid for the U.S. Senate until Marco Rubio used an image of Crist hugging President Barack Obama to chase Crist from the primary. Crist lost an independent bid for the seat Rubio now holds. After campaigning for Obama in 2012, Crist completed his political transition later that year by posting a photo of his voter registration card on Twitter during an event at the White House. He now hopes he can inspire Democratic voters who have opposed him in five statewide races. As a Republican, Crist was elected education commissioner in 2000, attorney general in 2002 and governor in 2006. He lost a U.S. Senate race as a Republican in 1998 and as an independent in 2010. In her concession speech, Rich said she told Crist that she wants to make sure her progressive values will have a place in his campaign and said shell work to help elect him. I entered this race to defeat Rick Scott and to get Florida back on the right track, and that is the goal that I remain committed to, she said. Crist said he welcomes her help. The issues shes passionate about, Im passionate about, too. Obviously that includes women and children and education, Crist said after the phone call. Despite initially campaigning as a strong conservative in the 2010 Senate race, Crist was widely considered a moderate Republican governor supported by some Democrats. He vetoed an abortion bill and a teacher merit pay bill that were priorities for Republicans in 2010 and was a leader on climate change issues as governor. Crist wins Democratic primary for governor Associated PressFormer Republican Gov. Charlie Crist, now a Democrat, made a campaign stop Tuesday at a Boynton Beach phone bank. Associated PressFlorida Gov. Rick Scott and his wife, Ann, greet supporters Tuesday as they arrive at a phone bank field office in Orlando.

ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerCitrus County wants a parents voice on the Citrus County School Board. Incumbent Thomas Kennedy, of Beverly Hills, won the District 1 seat with 64percent of the votes against his opponents Tom Corkery, with 13percent of the votes, and Dean Morrison, with 23percent of the votes. I am extremely honored, Kennedy said. I love this community and I am very grateful that the voters have given me an opportunity to continue to serve for four more years and to represent our community on the school board. Kennedy won his current position in 2010 after defeating incumbent Lou Miele. I think and hope that the voters saw the love that I have with the kids in our community, he said. Perhaps I am somebody who they can see as accessible and wants to make a positive impact in our community. Corkery wishes the best for Kennedy, but hopes he still recognizes the working facets in the education system. I just hope that the newly elected (Kennedy) keeps striving for those trade schools I helped champion, Corkery said. Good luck to him. Morrison also wished victor Kennedy the best, but will be anxious for the next election. First of all, congratulations to Thomas and his family; I didnt expect the gap to be so wide, but thats what the voters decided, Morrison said. I wish him the best in the next four years, but Ill also be watching him during those four years because I expect to run again. Kennedy will be keeping his eyes on technology. We have a lot of work to balance, Kennedy said. One of the things is technology and vocational options in our high schools. That will continue to be the two things that I continue to focus on. And I want to make sure that students with learning disabilities, like myself, continue to have positive options where they can be mainstreamed and apart of school system. MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleJimmy Hughes, a former superintendent of schools, holds a sign for school board candidate Doug Dodd outside the First Baptist Church of Crystal River on Crystal Street on Tuesday morning. The primary election concluded Tuesday night, with precincts closing their doors at 7 p.m.STATE& LOCAL Page A3WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Thomas Kennedyincumbent to remain on school board. Incumbent out of judicial race A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerVoters in the 5th Judicial Circuit, Group3, race appear to have ditched incumbent judge Sandy Kautz and the election is now headed for a two-way battle in November between two of her challengers. According to unofficial results in the four-person judicial race, Mary Hatcher of Wildwood received 46.52percent of the five-county vote, followed by Denise Dymond Lyn of Inverness with 21.34percent. The runoff between Hatcher and Dymond Lyn will be decided in the Nov. 4 general election. Kautz received 15.71percent while another of her challengers, Bo Samargya, garnered 16.42 of the vote. I cant tell you how thankful I am. I have always said I am the most experienced candidate in this race and I think the voters looked at my record and decided to vote that way, Hatcher said. She said she will continue spreading the same message going into the fall election against Dymond Lyn. Dymond Lyn also thanked voters and added she is extremely pleased for going through to November. There are differences between Mary (Hatcher) and me and now that the focus is narrowing from four candidates to two, I think the voters will have a clear choice, Dymond Lyn said. Efforts to reach Kautz and Samargya before press time were unsuccessful. Kautz, who is nearing the end of her first six-year term as judge, had said she would not campaign nor accept funds to do so. She said, instead, she asked voters to come see for themselves her performance in the courtroom. However, Kautz is facing a possible reprimand from the Florida Supreme Court and his challengers pounced on that issue during the campaign and insisted she had to go. Last December, Kautz signed a stipulation before the Florida Judicial Qualifications Commission, which was investigating allegations against the judge. The commission then recommended a public reprimand of Kautz. The matter is pending before the Supreme Court. An investigative panel, held in April 2013, found that probable cause existed for several formal charges, according to commission records. Kautz was charged with expressing anger and frustration in a series of cases involving individuals seeking assistance through the court system. The report also states Kautz made rulings that made it appear she either did not know the law or chose not to apply the law. The panel also said that as a new judge in the 2010 when some of the allegations reportedly happened, Kautz failed to appreciate the input from other stakeholders in the court system. Although the panel thought her actions were without any improper purpose, they did have the consequence of undermining the publics confidence in the judiciary. And a third charge was linked to 2012 court appearance she made on behalf of her sister resulting in a violation of the Code of Judicial Conduct. Kautz reportedly accepted full responsibility for her actions, admitted it should not have occurred, apologized and has taken steps to prevent a reoccurrence. The commission concluded that while the judges conduct was misguided, it was not illintentioned. Dymond Lyn, 47, who ran against Kautz during the 2008 election, emphasized her ties to Citrus County during the campaign. Voters in the county rewarded her with their votes by handing her 35.92percent of the vote. Hatcher came in a close second in the county with 32.15percent of the vote while Kautz and Samargya polled 14.59percent and 17.35percent respectively.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Stalwart supporter Sheldon wins Democratic primary for Florida AG GARYFINEOUT Associated PressTALLAHASSEE George Sheldon, a onetime top official in the Obama administration, easily defeated state Rep. Perry Thurston on Tuesday in the Democratic primary for attorney general. Sheldon moves on to the November ballot where he will challenge Republican incumbent Pam Bondi and Libertarian candidate Bill Wohlsifer. With 45percent of precincts reporting, Sheldon led Thurston 62 to 38percent. The 67-year-old Sheldon has had several stints in state government, including spending time working under Bob Butterworth, who was the last Democrat to hold the position of attorney general. He was also secretary of the Department of Children and Families under former Gov. Charlie Crist. But he could have an uphill battle against Bondi whose campaign and political committee has already raised more than $3.5 million. Sheldon raised slightly less than $500,000 for her primary campaign but spent nearly all of it in his quest for the nomination. Bondi, who has is well-known in conservative circles due to her unsuccessful legal campaign against President Barack Obamas health care overhaul, will likely get extra help from the Republican Party of Florida. She plans to emphasize her work against prescription drug abuse The Democratic primary was a lowprofile campaign where the two rivals largely refrained from criticizing each other directly. Instead, they were united in their unfailing criticism of Bondi and the job she has done since taking office in 2011. Both Sheldon and Thurston sharply criticized her for opposing a medical marijuana amendment on the November ballot as well as her fight to retain the states ban on same-sex marriage. Sheldon has faulted Bondis decision to refrain from getting actively involved in utility rate cases a turnaround from the practice that was common among previous attorneys general including two Republicans. My view of the office of attorney general is that it really ought to be the peoples lawyer not the governors lawyer or the Legislatures lawyer, Sheldon said. This is Sheldons second run for statewide office. He lost to Crist in the 2000 election for education commissioner, which was an elected position at the time. George SheldonDemocratic candidate now faces incumbent Pam Bondi. 5TH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT JUDGE WHAT: 5th Judicial Circuit Judge. COVERS: All Citrus County, plus Hernando, Lake, Marion and Sumter counties. TERM: 6 years. PAY: $146,080. ON THE BALLOT: Mary Hatcher and Denise Dymond Lyn are in Nov.4 general election. Denise Dymond Lyn Mary Hatcher Kennedy wins re-election Dodd wins election to school board ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerThroughout his campaign Doug Dodd touted his local school safety background as a reason why he should be elected as the District3 Citrus County School Board member. And the community agreed. With 57percent of the vote, Dodd was elected to fill the seat that retiring board member Pat Deutschman has held for the past 16 years. He retired from the Citrus County Sheriffs Office as a captain in February after 26 years on the job. He also helped start the School Resource Officer program and was an SRO for 10 years. I think that the voters liked my philosophy of safe schools, fiscally sound schools and academically successful schools, Dodd said. Its a simple, positive message. I think the people are putting their trust in me to act in the best interest of the kids. One opponent, Quinton Herrin Jr., received 10percent of the vote. He was disappointed in the results, but wished those in the Citrus education system the best. Well its just unfortunate that Citrus County doesnt want to change and that they want business as usual, Herrin said. God bless our children. The other opponent, Sheila Whitelaw, received 33percent of the vote. Dodd said his campaign wasnt about negativity. I ran a campaign that was about building things up. I am not about tearing things down, Dodd said. I hope that I will be an encouragement and I want people to know that I am a decisionmaker, hard worker and I am going to work hard as a school board member. Thank you for putting your faith and trust in me. I will uphold that faith and trust. SCHOOL BOARD DISTRICT 3 WHAT: Citrus County School Board District3. COVERS: All Citrus County. TERM: 4 years.

Npad2611-00-ee-st 11/12 Do you have ringing in your ears? Tinnitus is a perception of sound even though no sound is present. Researchers have found that 50 million people suffer from tinnitus that is 1 out of 5 people. This ringing that you hear is not a sign of anything serious although it may bother you or interfere with daily activities. It can cause problems like understanding speech, lack of sleeping, depression, headaches to name a few. Patients may hear the noise as a ringing, buzzing, low tone, high pitch, or sound like a train. They also hear it at different volumes as well. These are some common questions patients ask: 1. Can tinnitus cause a hearing loss? No it cannot. It is a symptom not a cause of a problem. 2. Where did this ringing come from? There are several different possible causes of tinnitus but the common ones are noise induced trauma (gun shot, loud music), ototoxic drugs, and head trauma. 3. Is there a cure for my ringing? There is no cure for tinnitus but we have a couple of options that can help relieve the tinnitus. One would be to get a hearing test and if you have a hearing loss then treat the loss, this will bring in sounds that can mask the ringing. A second option is sound therapy. Tinnitus masker is a form of sound therapy. It is a device that will play a variety of sounds to distract your mind from the ringing. If you have ringing in your ears you dont have to suffer anymore. Let us help you, see our specialist today. Tinnitus

Burger King plans expansion of Tim HortonsMIAMI The fight for the coffee and breakfast crowd is heating up, both at home and abroad. Burger King said Tuesday it will buy Tim Hortons in an $11billion deal that would create the worlds third largest fast-food chain. The company is hoping to turn the coffeeand-doughnut chain into a household name outside Canada and give itself a stronger foothold in the booming morning business. Alex Behring, Burger Kings executive chairman, said the new company would be one of the fastest-growing fastfood chains in the world. The international ambitions for Tim Hortons echo the strategy Burger Kings owner, 3G Capital, has applied to Burger King since buying the hamburger chain in 2010. Given Burger Kings struggles in the U.S., the investment firm has focused on opening more locations in countries including China and Russia by striking deals with local franchisees. Last year, for example, 3G accelerated expansion and opened 670 Burger King locations. Burger King now has nearly 14,000 locations globally, but the company has noted thats still far less than the more than 35,000 McDonalds restaurants around the world. In the U.S., Tim Hortons could also give Burger King another way to tap into the attractive coffee and breakfast markets, which have been dominated by players including McDonalds, Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks. Marc Caira, the CEO of Tim Hortons, noted the Canadian chains recent efforts to make a bigger push into the U.S., including updated store designs that feature couches and fireplaces.GM likely to announce SUVs, jobs at Tenn. plantDETROIT General Motors and government officials are expected to announce new vehicles and jobs Wednesday at a sprawling factory complex in Spring Hill, Tennessee. An announcement is scheduled for Wednesday morning at the plant, which is likely to get new Cadillac and GMC crossover SUVs in addition to its current product, the Chevrolet Equinox. Neither GM nor Gov. Bill Haslams office would comment ahead of the announcement, but the state said in a July11 news release that a nearby company was expanding to make parts for new GMC and Cadillac vehicles at Spring Hill. ABC Group plans to invest $25.5million in its Gallatin, Tennessee, plant, adding 180,000 square feet and creating 230 jobs. The expansion will increase capacity to build consoles, interior trim and floors for new GMC and Cadillac vehicles to be made at Spring Hill, said the news release from the state Department of Economic and Community Development. GM is reworking the Equinox and its sister vehicle, the GMC Terrain. The Equinox went on sale in 2009 as a 2010 model and has done well, but its competing against newly redesigned crossover SUVs such as the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. Its also possible that GM is reworking the Cadillac SRX crossover.AP survey: Feds outlook correct, but not solutionWASHINGTON Economists appear to be of two minds about the Federal Reserve. They agree with the Fed that the job market still isnt healthy. Yet the latest Associated Press survey of economists finds that most fear the Fed will wait too long to raise interest rates and thereby risk stoking inflation or creating asset bubbles. The duality of their views underscores the perils of the Feds policymaking. Most economists accept that theres still significant slack in the job market. By that they mean that millions of people the unemployed as well as part-time workers and people whove stopped looking for work and arent counted as unemployed would likely take jobs or work more hours if they could. Still, theyre concerned that Janet Yellens Fed wont raise rates soon enough. I agree with her diagnosis; I even like what she has in mind, said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moodys Analytics. But Im skeptical that shell be able to pull it off. The AP surveyed three dozen private, corporate and academic economists from Aug. 13 to19. In follow-up interviews, several said they feared that by waiting too long to raise rates, the Fed could ignite inflation or may already be feeding speculative bubbles in assets such as stocks or high-yield bonds. Yellens much more concerned about the Feds employment mandate than inflation, said David Shulman, an economist at UCLAs Anderson School of Management, referring to the Feds drive to lower unemployment. Theyll risk financial bubbles. Lynn Reaser, a professor at Point Loma Nazarene University, agrees with Yellen that if the economy were nearing full health, workers pay would be rising faster, fewer people would be unemployed for more than six months and many part-timers who want full-time jobs would manage to find them. But by the time we hit that situation, there may already be pressures on the inflation front or significant bubbles in various asset markets, Reaser said. To play catchup at that point may require large increases in interest rates, which could be very damaging to the economy. S&P 500 closes above 2,000 for first time Associated PressIt was a big round-number day for the stock market. The Standard & Poors 500 index closed a hair above 2,000points Tuesday, 16 years after it finished above 1,000 for the first time. The move extended the stock indexs recordshattering run this year. The latest milestone comes as investors see new signs that the economy is strengthening, a driver of stronger company earnings. Theres perhaps a small psychological boost when you get over such a significant price level, said Cameron Hinds, regional chief investment officer at Wells Fargo Private Bank. U.S. stocks, in the midst of a five-year rally, have surged in the final weeks of the summer after dipping earlier this month on concerns about geopolitical tensions in Ukraine and the Middle East. U.S. stock futures pointed to a higher opening in premarket trading Tuesday. That trend held as investors began to digest the latest positive economic news. The Conference Board said Tuesday that its consumer confidence index rose this month to the highest point in nearly seven years. A separate report showed that orders of durable manufactured goods surged by a record 22.6percent in July, thanks to a jump in aircraft sales. A third report showed U.S. home prices rose in June, although at a slower pace. Stocks opened slightly higher and remained up the rest of the day. The S&P 500 ended up 2.10points, or 0.1percent, to end at 2,000.02. Seven of the 10 sectors in the index rose, led by energy stocks. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 29.83points, or 0.2percent, to 17,106.70. The Nasdaq composite gained 13.29points, or 0.3percent, to 4,570.64. The Dow is 32points shy of its own record closing high set July 16. The Nasdaq is still well below its dot-com era record. Major U.S. indexes are riding a three-week streak of weekly gains and are up for the year. The S&P 500 index, a widely followed barometer of the stock market, has closed at a new high 30 times this year.

Page A12WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2014 Dixon speaks the truthFirst, Id like to thank theChroniclefor its recent column regarding the problem of lying in politics. Not only is lying a problem in the political arena, it is a self-perpetuating curse on our society in general. After all, a good liar can reach incredible heights in America, be they in sports (drugs), politics, business, whatever. In that regard, I thank the editor for including Dr. William Dixon as a guest columnist. Yesterday (Sunday), Dixon spoke to the violent culture at the root of the riots in Missouri. In his cogent column, Dixon invoked the teachings of Thomas Sowell, a brilliant black man who is often verbally attacked (or ignored) simply because he and other black conservatives speak the truth regarding race in America. Unfortunately for us all, there are far too many leaders in this country who arent interested in the truth, who dont want the truth or, as Jack Nicholson said, who Cant handle the truth! The reasons are varied, of course, but primarily because the truth does not benefit them, nor does it achieve their personal and selfishgoals. Dividing us serves them much better, or so they think. Dixon is absolutely right and truthful, so likely he will also be attacked by those who are not interested in the truth. The fact is, far too many black people are blindly following leaders (Al Sharpton come to mind?) who want them to blame white people for all their problems, and they ultimately come to hate all white people for it. The riots in Missouri are a case in point. Does anyone believe there would be riots or outrage in Missouri (or Sanford) if the shooters had been black? Anyone? No, because there is nothing in it for Sharpton and his ilk to gain. He cant profit when thousands of black men are killed each year by other black men, but find him a white shooter, regardless of the circumstances, and he comes running. And, sadly, useful idiots in the white media jump aboard his hate train. Our leaders, and the media, need to talk about this openly and honestly, and not under the threat of being called racist, but I dont see it happening any time soon. I truly appreciate Dixon being unafraid to start the ball rolling in this regard. An occasional column by Thomas Sowell would be another step in the right direction. Sam Nall Homosassa This is a tale of two cities. Murrieta, in Southern California, attracted a lot of TV cameras recently when protestors blocked three busses carrying illegal immigrants to a processing center. The crowds bristled with racially tinged hostility. What kind of criminality will happen? demanded a demonstrator. One woman wore a shirt bearing the legend, If You Cant Feed Them Dont Breed Them. Another carried a homemade sign blaring, Send Them Back With Birth Control. Utica, an aging industrial center in upstate New York, takes exactly the opposite approach. It welcomes immigrants, especially refugees from political persecution in countries like Burma and Bosnia. The immigrants have been an economic engine for the city, The New York Timesreported, starting small businesses, buying and renovating down-at-the-heels houses and injecting a sense of vitality to forlorn city streets. Both storylines reflect our history. Americans have always embraced immigrants and resented them at the same time. Signs urging Send Them Back are as familiar as the poem on the Statue of Liberty that reads, Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me. Washington has totally failed to confront the immigration issue because nativist Republicans in the House have adopted the send them back mindset and blocked every effort at reform. As a result, 11 million undocumented immigrants still lack legal status. Employers cannot find enough fruit pickers or software designers. Other countries are courting our best foreign-born grad students because we make it so hard for them to stay and work here. But in the end, the optimism of Utica is stronger than the fear of Murrieta. Immigrants have always injected our national life with a sense of vitality, and while Washington abdicates, cities across the country are begging newcomers to move there. A good example is St. Louis, which created a civic campaign called the Mosaic Project to attract new residents. The effort is based on a study by Jack Strauss, an economics professor at Saint Louis University, who wrote: There is one clear and specific way to simultaneously redress the regions population stagnation, output slump, tepid employment growth, housing weakness and deficit in entrepreneurship. Immigration. One part of the campaign: putting signs on the citys buses and trains in 17 languages. Were talking about how (to) look and feel more welcoming, the projects director, Betsy Cohen, told the St. Louis PostDispatch. Signs on the bus are a very tangible thing that help people understand were a globally welcoming community. A similar effort called Global Cleveland is using social media and online messages to reach potential recruits. Its really going to be a one-stop shop: Everything Id want to know about what life here is like, said Joy Roller, the groups president. Richard Herman, co-author of the book Immigrant, Inc., emphasizes the benefits of job creation. This demographic has demonstrated their over-performance in entrepreneurship, whether thats a neighborhood bodega or a big tech company, he told Cleveland.com. Economics is driving the whole piece. Were basically talking about welcoming immigrants to grow the economy. Philadelphia suffered decades of decline before initiating the Welcoming Center for New Pennsylvanians. We had 60 years of losing population, and if hadnt been for immigrants, it would have been 65, said Amanda Bergson-Shilock, the outreach director. The key, she told thePost-Dispatch, is tapping into the immigrant grapevine and generating word-of-mouth advertising. If someone moves to Philadelphia and someone helps them build a life here, other people will hear about it, she says. We both know firsthand the value of new immigrants. Cokie grew up in New Orleans, a city founded by French traders in the 18th century that has always thrived on the energy and innovation of a widely diverse population. Steves hometown of Bayonne, New Jersey, was once dominated by immigrants from Europe, including his own grandparents. Today, the stores on Broadway are run by Indians, not Jews. The old Catholic churches that once offered masses in Italian and Polish have been joined by the True Light Korean United Methodist Church and the Arabic Assembly of God. But the spirit of Utica is not just about creating commerce; its about creating a culture. I think the main point is to respect each other, Ahmedin Mehmedovic, imam of a mosque converted from a Methodist church, told theTimes. If you respect me as a Muslim and as a good man, Ill respect you too. In Utica, there is a big harmony between different religions and different congregations. Two towns. One stands for turmoil, the other for tolerance. Well take tolerance.Steve and Cokie Roberts can be contacted by email at stevecokie@gmail.com.

Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARDGerry Mulligan ....................................publisherMike Arnold ..............................................editorCharlie Brennan ........................managing editorCurt Ebitz ..................................citizen memberMac Harris ................................citizen memberRebecca Martin ........................citizen memberBrad Bautista ....................................copy chief Trails plan means bucks and bikes alike About a year ago, Florida was the only state in the union to turn down funding through the nationwide Recreational Trails Program, one of the top funding sources for bike trails and other recreational pathways. At the time, though, Florida Department of Transportation Secretary Ananth Prasad said FDOT sees the value in recreational trails and is committed to them. This year, things are looking much better, with the state supporting some major trails projects and providing $16 million in funding to start making them happen. Thats why it was a good step recently when the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) approved the proposed Multi-Use Trails Master Plan as an amendment to our countys Comprehensive Plan. Now it goes to Tallahassee for multiple-agency review. They have 30 days to comment to the county before the BOCC sets a final public hearing. Why is all this important? Incorporating the trails master plan into the Comprehensive Plan allows the county to get its projects on priority lists for funding through the state and other sources. The social, health and especially the positive economic effects of trails are being recognized statewide; there has never been a better time for public support of trail development. As one county commissioner noted, if we dont get in line for available funding, it will be awarded to another county. The countys trails project began in early 2013 with a presentation to the BOCC on a proposed trails network. Between then and now, a detailed county and regional trails inventory was completed, county planning staff invited comment and collaboration with the cities of Inverness and Crystal River, they have established relationships with the state Office of Greenways and Trails as well as the FDOT, and they have presented the plan to the countys Planning and Development Commission. Citrus County is fortunate to already have big sections of a trail network in place. The premier trail is, of course, the Withlacoochee State Trail on our countys eastern side. We also have a portion of the Florida National Scenic Trail (one of 11 nationally designated trails) that meanders through the Withlacoochee State Forest and Whispering Pines Park in Inverness. The city of Inverness adopted a Bicycle Master Plan in 2009 and has been working steadily on trail connections in the city. Paved trail sections were included in the State Road 44 and County Road 486 roadway projects. In northwest Citrus County, we have the Withlacoochee Bay Trail, plus the access to Levy Countys Inglis Island Trails. Crystal River has paved trails along sections of U.S. 19 and Cutler Spur Boulevard in addition to the Crosstown Trail, and plans to connect it to a possible Suncoast Parkway 2 trailhead. Weve heard a lot recently about plans to connect the north end of the Withlacoochee State Trail and the Dunnellon trailhead, a project that was already presented for addition to the regional transportation priorities list. County residents who arent familiar with our trails should put exploration and enjoyment of them on a to-do list. And we all should continue to support the BOCC in developing the trails network that enhances our quality of life and is such a strong tourism draw. THE ISSUE:Citrus Countys trails master plan passes another milestone.OUR OPINION:A good step in the right direction.

He is a great one for blaming the victim. He always does that and I think he ought to walk for one day in the shoes of someone living in Ferguson and find out what kind of harassment theyve had throughout their entire life. His writings literally make me ill. I think he should go back to work as a doctor and forget writing about politics because he doesnt know what hes talking about. Just saying.Shame on both of youI dont even know if I should waste my breath, my energy, calling in because it doesnt seem to do anything about Dr. Dixon and his spouting out his own violent culture, his own violent take on things. Hes no expert and doctor of culture or doctor of environment or doctor of politics. The ultimate is this column today (Aug. 24) in the Chronicle about Violent culture at the root of riot. Thats a slap in the face to the intelligence of the people of Citrus community. I am a white person. Im not a black person. You know what I am? Im a human being.

Balfour competed against Bev Howard, 65, of Homosassa, to win election to the final two years of the four-year. I feel that it has been a very positive race and I have been focused on making sure it was, Balfour said. Im just very appreciative and thankful for my supporters and voters. Bev is a very nice lady and I have a lot of respect for her. I wish she had been running for a different seat. I would have loved the opportunity to work with her on the board. Howard, who received 41 percent of the vote, was thankful for meeting voters during her campaign. I know I finished well, Howard said. Im very thankful for all the people that supported me. Im very disappointed that I didnt win, but I worked hard to the very end. Balfour said a top priority is finding an agreeable solution to both parents and the state on the rigid requirements for over-thecounter medication in schools. Right off the bat, we as a team, we need to get a focus on the over-thecounter medication, she said. We need to collect more information to streamline it so that it is more palatable for parents, students and staff. We need to be able to comply with state statutes but we need to be realistic on dayto-day operations, too. And she hopes to continue offering a positive voice in the district. I want to thank every voter that voted for me, Balfour said. For those who didnt, I hope that I prove myself.

She said she will be getting right back to work. I am just thinking about what we can start on tomorrow to get things done for more successes in our district, Powers said. I want to strengthen our vocational problems within the schools high school, middle school and even reaching into the elementary schools, so that they are aware of whats available for jobs. That is the number one priority for me. And then when WTI comes into the picture, I want to work on strengthening the industry certifications, she said, referring to Withlacoochee Technical Institute. I want to work with Legislature in Tallahassee to focus on this. I feel strongly about this and it is going to start tomorrow. She said she promised the voters that she would concentrate on jobs and vocational education and said Tuesday evening she is going to keep her promise. Thank you and I appreciate your support and I will work as hard as I can work for the next four years to get things accomplished, Powers said. The district has done so well for so many years that there is no need to turn around and do something else. We need to keep being successful. Donna Fletcher was unavailable for comment by deadline Tuesday night. POWERSContinued from Page A1 Group files petition to idle nuke plant Associated PressLOS ANGELES An environmental group asked federal regulators Tuesday to idle Californias last operating nuclear plant to review whether its reactors can withstand strong shaking from nearby earthquake faults. Friends of the Earth, an advocacy group critical of the nuclear power industry, filed a petition with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission asking for a hearing on seismic risks at the Diablo Canyon plant. The group says the plant is violating its federal operating license. Neighboring faults, one about 650 yards from the plant, pose a serious safety risk to the public and the environment, the 92page petition said. The NRC, which oversees the nations commercial nuclear power industry, and Diablo Canyon owner Pacific Gas and Electric Co., have said the nearly three-decade-old reactors, which produce enough electricity for more than 3 million people annually, are safe and that the facility complies with its operating license, including earthquake safety standards. A statement from NRC spokeswoman Lara Uselding said the agency would review the petition. PG&E spokesman Blair Jones said the environmental group is mischaracterizing the facts. The plant was built with seismic safety in mind ... and is designed to withstand the largest potential earthquakes that could occur in the region, Jones said. Major components can continue to perform their safety functions during and after a strong earthquake. The petition was filed after The Associated Press disclosed Monday that a senior federal nuclear expert is urging the NRC to shut down the seaside plant until it can determine whether the twin reactors can withstand shaking from any of several nearby faults. Michael Peck, who for five years was the NRCs lead inspector at the plant, says in a 42-page, confidential report that the NRC is not applying the safety rules it set out for the plants operation. The document, which was obtained and verified by AP, does not say the plant itself is unsafe. Instead, according to Pecks analysis, no one knows whether the facilitys key equipment can withstand strong shaking from those faults the potential for which was realized decades after the facility was built. The petition echoes those concerns. The group argues the reactors located between Los Angeles and San Francisco should remain closed until a rigorous safety review is completed and PG&E amends its license. Following the AP report, the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee announced it would hold hearings into how the NRC has handled Pecks recommendation, which was filed in July 2013. The conflict between Peck and his superiors stems from the 2008 discovery of the Shoreline fault, which snakes offshore about 650 yards from the reactors. A larger crack, the Hosgri fault, had been discovered in the 1970s about 3 miles away, after the plants construction permits had been issued and work was underway. Surveys have mapped a network of other faults north and south of the reactors. According to Pecks filing, PG&E research in 2011 determined that any of three nearby faults the Shoreline, Los Osos and San Luis Bay is capable of producing significantly more ground motion during an earthquake than was accounted for in the design of important plant equipment. Associated PressMichael Peck, a senior federal nuclear expert, is urging regulators to shut down California's last operating nuclear plant, the Pacific Gas and Electric Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant in Avila Beach, Calif., until they can determine whether the facility's twin reactors can withstand powerful shaking from any one of several nearby earthquake faults.

Honored Associated PressThis undated photo from the Wisconsin Historical Society shows First Lt. Alonzo Cushing, a Union Army lieutenant killed at Gettysburg, Pa., during the Civil War. Medal of Honor for Civil War soldierWASHINGTON A Civil War soldier is to be honored with the nations highest military decoration 151years after his death. The White House announced Wednesday that President Barack Obama will give the Medal of Honor to Alonzo H. Cushing. His descendants and Civil War buffs have been pushing for the Union Army lieutenant killed at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to receive the award. Cushing, who was from Wisconsin, commanded a force to the front lines on the last of a three-day battle at Gettysburg and was killed by a Confederate bullet to the head. Confederate soldiers eventually retreated in the battle, and the South never recovered from the defeat. The White House said Obama also will award the medal to two Vietnam War soldiers in a ceremony Sept.15.UN panel reports global warming WASHINGTON Global warming is here, humancaused and probably already dangerous and its increasingly likely that the heating trend could be irreversible, a draft of a new international science report states. The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change on Monday sent governments a final draft of its synthesis report, which combines three earlier, gigantic documents by the Nobel Prize-winning group. There is little in the report that wasnt in the other more-detailed versions, but the language is more stark and the report attempts to connect the different scientific disciplines studying problems caused by the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, oil and gas. The 127-page draft, obtained by The Associated Press, paints a harsh warning of whats causing global warming and what it will do to humans and the environment. It also describes what can be done about it.City declines anti-pot campaignBOULDER, Colo. A provocative anti-marijuana campaign aimed at Colorado youths has angered marijuana activists for its tag line, Dont Be a Lab Rat. Now a Colorado city is holding off on displaying a human-size cage used in the campaign after a school district raised concerns. The city of Boulder said Tuesday it is holding off on the campaign. The Daily Camera reported the city is delaying installation after the Boulder Valley School District said the display was a bad prop for 12to 15-year-olds. The 12-foot-long, 8-foothigh cage attracted vandals and jeers in its run at two different Denver locations, the public library and the downtown skate park.

Presidents meet for bilateral talksMINSK, Belarus The presidents of Russia and Ukraine met late Tuesday for their first bilateral talks at a much-anticipated summit in Minsk, which many voiced hopes may help bring an end to fighting between Kievs forces and pro-Russian separatists in east Ukraine. Vladimir Putin and Petro Poroshenko met in the Belarusian capital, the first such meeting between the countries heads of state since Ukraines proRussian ex-president was ousted from power in February, according to the Twitter account of the Ukrainian presidential administration. The meeting, which had not been previously announced by either side, was also confirmed by Kremlin.Mayan centers studied in MexicoMEXICO CITY Archaeologists in Mexico have found an ancient Maya city in the state of Campeche and rediscovered another forest-covered site that first was stumbled upon in the 1970s. The National Institute for Anthropology and History said the discoveries will help archaeologists study the cultural and political histories of an area known as the Central Lowlands of the Maya region. The first site, known as Tamchen, features plazas, palatial buildings and a 45foot-tall pyramid. Its name means deep well, and comes from a collection of underground water tanks. The second, known as Lagunita, was first discovered 40years ago by American researcher Eric von Euw. His sketches of various monuments, including a faade representing the jaws of a reptile, were used to relocate the ruins.Report: 1,400 UK kids exploitedLONDON About 1,400 children were sexually exploited in a northern England town, a report concluded Tuesday in a damning account of collective failures by authorities to prevent victims as young as 11 from being beaten, raped and trafficked over a 16-year period. Report author Alexis Jay cited appalling acts of violence between 1997 and 2013 in Rotherham, a town of some 250,000. The independent report came after a series of convictions of sexual predators in the region and ground-breaking reports in the Times of London Reading descriptions of the abuse make it hard to imagine that nothing was done for so long. The report described rapes by multiple perpetrators, mainly from Britains Pakistani community, and how children were trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten and intimidated. The report's author took great pains to make sure the identities of the children were not revealed, but offered a general description of the cases showing the victims were between 11 and 16 years old. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressGAZA CITY, Gaza Strip Israel and Gazas ruling Hamas agreed Tuesday to an open-ended cease-fire after seven weeks of fighting an uneasy deal that halts the deadliest war the sides have fought in years, with more than 2,200 killed, but puts off the most difficult issues. In the end, both sides settled for an ambiguous interim agreement in exchange for a period of calm. Hamas, though badly battered, remains in control of Gaza with part of its military arsenal intact. Israel and Egypt will continue to control access to blockaded Gaza, despite Hamas long-running demand that the border closures imposed in 2007 be lifted. Hamas declared victory, even though it had little to show for a war that killed 2,143 Palestinians, wounded more than 11,000 and left some 100,000 homeless. On the Israeli side, 64 soldiers and six civilians were killed, including two killed by Palestinian mortar fire shortly before the cease-fire was announced. Large crowds gathered in Gaza City after the truce took effect at dusk, some waving the green flags of Hamas, while celebratory gunfire and fireworks erupted across the territory. Mahmoud Zahar, a senior Hamas leader, promised to rebuild homes destroyed in the war and said Hamas would rearm. We will build and upgrade our arsenal to be ready for the coming battle, the battle of full liberation, he declared, surrounded by Hamas gunmen. The Israeli response was more subdued. This time we hope the ceasefire will stick, said Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev. He portrayed the deal as one Hamas had rejected in previous rounds of negotiations. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faced some criticism from hard-line critics and residents of Israeli communities near Gaza who said the deal failed to defuse the threat from Gaza militants. IG: Shoddy care by VA didnt cause veterans deaths in Phoenix Associated PressWASHINGTON Government investigators found no proof that delays in care caused veterans to die at a Phoenix VA hospital, but they found plenty of problems that the Veterans Affairs Department is promising to fix. Investigators uncovered large-scale improprieties in the way VA hospitals and clinics across the nation have been scheduling veterans for appointments, according to a report released Tuesday by the VAs Office of Inspector General. The report said workers falsified waitlists while their supervisors looked the other way or even directed it, resulting in chronic delays for veterans seeking care. Inappropriate scheduling practices are a nationwide systemic problem, said the report by Richard Griffin, the VAs acting inspector general. These practices became systemic because (the Veterans Health Administration) did not hold senior headquarters and facility leadership responsible and accountable. The report could deflate an explosive allegation that helped launch the scandal in the spring: that as many as 40 veterans died while awaiting care at the Phoenix VA hospital. Investigators identified 40 patients who died while awaiting appointments in Phoenix, the report said, but added: While the case reviews in this report document poor quality of care, we are unable to conclusively assert that the absence of timely quality care caused the deaths of these veterans. Nevertheless, top VA officials said the reports findings were troubling. Im glad that veterans didnt die because of delays in care, or at least they werent able to conclude that they did, Deputy VA Secretary Sloan Gibson said in an interview. But the fundamental issue is, veterans are waiting too long, and thats the problem weve got to face. Congress approved $10billion in emergency spending over three years to pay private doctors and other health professionals to care for veterans who cant get timely appointments at VA medical facilities, or who live more than 40miles from one. The new law includes $5billion for hiring more VA doctors, nurses and other medical staff and $1.3billion to open 27 new VA clinics across the country. The legislation also makes it easier to fire hospital administrators and senior VA executives for negligence or poor performance. Judges blast gay marriage bans Associated PressCHICAGO Federal appeals judges bristled on Tuesday at arguments defending gay marriage bans in Indiana and Wisconsin, with one Republican appointee comparing them to now-defunct laws that once outlawed weddings between blacks and whites. As the legal skirmish in the United States over same-sex marriage shifted to the three-judge panel of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago, more than 200 people lined up hours before to ensure they got a seat at the much-anticipated hearing. While judges often play devils advocate during oral arguments, the panels often-blistering questions for the defenders of the same-sex marriage bans could be a signal the laws may be in trouble at least at this step in the legal process. Attorneys general in both states asked the appellate court to permanently restore the bans, which were ruled unconstitutional in June. Its ruling could affect hundreds of couples who married after lower courts tossed the bans and before those rulings were stayed pending the Chicago appeal. Gay marriage is legal in 19 states as well as the District of Columbia, and advocates have won more than 20 court victories around the country since the U.S. Supreme Court ordered the federal government to recognize state-sanctioned gay marriages last year. The Supreme Court has yet to take up a case, but Utah and Oklahomas cases were appealed to the high court and Virginias attorney general also has asked the justices to weigh in. Appeals court rulings are pending for Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee, while appellate court hearings are scheduled next month for Hawaii, Oregon and Nevada; and expected soon in Texas. Richard Posner, who was appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1981, hit the backers of the ban the hardest. He balked when Wisconsin Assistant Attorney General Timothy Samuelson repeatedly pointed to tradition as the underlying justification for barring gay marriage. It was tradition to not allow blacks and whites to marry a tradition that got swept away, the 75year-old judge said. Prohibition of same sex marriage, Posner said, derives from a tradition of hate ... and savage discrimination of homosexuals. Cease-fire in Gaza Associated PressA ball of fire rises from an explosion Tuesday following an Israeli air strike on the house of Nafez Azzam, a leader for Islamic Jihad leader, one hour before the announcement of the cease-fire between Palestinians and Israelis, in Rafah refugee camp, in the southern Gaza Strip. Israel, Hamas truce open-ended, but puts off tough issues BAN CHALLENGES State bans on same-sex marriages have been f alling around the country since summer 2013, when the Supreme Court ordered the federal government to recognize state-sanctioned gay marriages. The remaining state bans all face legal challenges, and the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago heard arguments Tuesday on cases from Indiana and Wisconsin. Gay couples can marry in 19 states and the District of Columbia. In Florida, A federal judge last week declared the state s ban unconstitutional, joining state judges in four counties. He issued a stay delaying the effect of his order, meaning no marriage licenses will be immediately issued for gay couples.

Nelson Cruz had two hits and drove in a run for the AL Eastleading Orioles, who improved to 10-4 against Tampa Bay. Baltimore relievers gave up one hit over the final 4 1/3 innings. Evan Longoria had two RBIs for the Rays, who have lost seven of 10 since reaching the .500 mark on Aug. 15. Tampa Bay stranded nine and had two runners thrown out at the plate. With the game tied at two in the sixth, Schoop delivered a two-out RBI single off Grant Balfour (1-6). Balfour signed with Baltimore in January, but the contract was voided when he failed the physical. One night after hitting five home runs, the Orioles totaled nine hits eight singles and an RBI double by Cruz that made it 4-2 in the seventh. Baltimore is 12-28 when it does not homer. Brad Brach (5-0) got four outs in relief of starter Wei-Yin Chen and Zach Britton, the fourth Orioles reliever, worked the ninth for his 28th save. Alex Cobb gave up two runs, three hits and three walks in four innings for Tampa Bay. Cobb is unbeaten since June 23 and has a franchise-record streak of nine starts allowing two runs or fewer. The Rays got six hits in the first two innings but scored only one run, on a first-inning RBI single by Longoria. In the third inning, the umpires called for a crew chief review of a walk. After home plate umpire Pat Hoberg awarded Nick Markakis first base, a replay of the at-bat revealed the count was full. Markakis then took a third strike. Baltimore went up 2-1 in the fourth. With two out and runners on second and third, Joseph hit a sinking liner to center that ticked off the glove of a diving Desmond Jennings. A two-out double by Longoria tied it in the fifth and ended Chens shortest outing since June 28.

Orioles: 3B Manny Machado left the team for California to have season-ending surgery on his right knee today. Associated PressTAMPA The Tampa Bay Buccaneers upgraded their struggling offensive line, trading for six-time Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins instead of offering a contract to free agent Richie Incognito. That doesnt mean, however, that the Bucs have closed the door on the prospect of giving one of the players at the center of the Miami Dolphins bullying scandal a chance to resume his career. After acquiring Mankins in exchange for second-year tight end Tim Wright and an undisclosed draft pick on Tuesday, coach Lovie Smith and general manager Jason Licht said Incognito remains an option if they decide to make more changes to an overhauled line that will begin the regular season with four new starters. We try to not to talk about putting a period behind many things. Everything is ongoing. If a player is available out there, theres still possibilities, Smith said. But we like our football team where we are right now. Weve made a lot of improvements. We feel like were in pretty good shape going into the season. The deal came less than 24 hours after the Bucs met with Incognito to try to determine if the 31-year-old whos coming off serving a suspension for his role in last seasons bullying scandal might be an answer to their problems at guard. Pirates cant keep pace C.J. RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO Put it this way: Both Seven Rivers Christian and Crystal River won their season-opening volleyball matches. Unfortunately for Crystal River, their opener came Monday, when the Pirates edged The Villages in five sets. On Tuesday at Seven Rivers, Crystal River could not keep pace with the Warriors, who won in straight sets, 25-20, 25-22, 25-17. We played as a team, Seven Rivers coach Wanda Grey said. Our philosophy this week was no ball hits the floor unless youre on the floor. Thats what we said in the locker room before coming out and thats what they did. Going into the season, both coaches thought defensive development could decide their teams fate. Tuesdays match seemed to indicate Seven Rivers has traveled a bit further along that road. To be fair, that five-set win over The Villages Monday seemed to drain Crystal River a bit in this match. A few Pirate breakdowns allowed the Warriors to take control of the match in the second and third sets. Theyre a solid defensive team, Crystal River coach Mike Ridley said. We struggled at some points, and there were some serving errors, some hitting errors, some mistakes on serve receive that cost us. The defensive intensity that needs to be there all the time, thats where we really need to get better at, thats something we need to focus on. I think at times we matched their intensity, in particular their defensive intensity, and at other times we didnt. That lack of consistency was evident in the final two sets. Neither team was able to open up more than a three-point lead in the second set, but after the score was tied at 15, Crystal River never again led in the game.

Associated PressDETROIT Rick Porcello pitched eight impressive innings, and the Detroit Tigers snapped New Yorks five-game winning streak Tuesday, beating the Yankees 5-2. Porcello (15-8) joined teammate Max Scherzer as the American Leagues only 15-game winners, allowing two runs and nine hits. The 25-year-old right-hander threw a shutout in his previous start against Tampa Bay, and he blanked the Yankees until Jacoby Ellsburys homer in the fifth. Ellsbury added another solo shot in the eighth. Brandon McCarthy (5-3) dealt with some uncharacteristic control problems in the second, and he ended up allowing five runs and nine hits in 6 1/3 innings. Joe Nathan pitched a perfect ninth for Detroit for his 28th save in 34 chances. First baseman Miguel Cabrera made two nice plays to close out the win. J.D. Martinez had three hits for the Tigers.AMERICAN LEAGUE Royals 2, Twins 1KANSAS CITY, Mo. Alex Gordon hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning, giving Kansas City a 2-1 win over the Minnesota Twins and helping the Royals avoid their first three-game skid since mid-July. The Royals had been shut down all night by the Twins Ricky Nolasco, who scattered three hits over seven innings. But after going quietly in the eighth, the AL Central leaders managed to break through against closer Glen Perkins (3-1) in the ninth. Alcides Escobar led off the inning with a blooper to shallow right for a single, and Gordon followed by swatting the second pitch he saw over the right-field wall for his 10th homer of the season. Wade Davis (7-2) earned the win with a perfect ninth inning in relief.Astros 4, Athletics 2HOUSTON Chris Carter hit his 32nd homer, a three-run drive in the eighth inning that lifted the Houston Astros over the Oakland Athletics 4-2. Oakland starter Jason Hammel had retired 10 straight batters when he was replaced by Luke Gregerson (3-3) for the eighth inning. Robbie Grossman reached on an error by first baseman Stephen Vogt with one out and Gregerson hit Jose Altuve with a pitch. Carter then launched a 90 mph fastball onto the tracks atop the wall in left field to put Houston on top. Josh Fields (4-6) pitched a scoreless eighth for the win and Chad Qualls did the same in the ninth for his 15th save. The As began the day tied with the Angels for the AL West lead.NATIONAL LEAGUE Phillies 3, Nationals 2PHILADELPHIA Freddy Galvis and Darin Ruf homered and Carlos Ruiz drove in go-ahead run with an eighth-inning sacrifice fly to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 3-2 victory over the Washington Nationals. Ken Giles (3-1) struck out the side in a scoreless eighth to help the Phillies to their fifth win in six games. Asdrubal Cabrera homered for the Nationals, who lost consecutive games for the first time since Aug. 4-5. Cole Hamels took a lead into the eighth before giving up a leadoff homer to Cabrera. The left-hander was lifted for Giles after that batter, finishing with three runs allowed on eight hits with five strikeouts and a walk. Gio Gonzalez (6-10) gave up three runs on six hits in six innings to extend his winless streak to nine starts. Jonathan Papelbon pitched a 1 2/3 ninth for his 33rd save in 35 chances.Mets 3, Braves 2NEW YORK Juan Lagares hit a two-run homer and ran down one ball after another in center field, sending Dillon Gee and the New York Mets to a 3-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves. Gee stopped the longest losing streak of his career at five games, outpitching Alex Wood in the opener of a three-game series. Lagares, rated one of the best defensive outfielders in baseball, scurried from gap to gap and finished with seven putouts. One of them was spectacular he robbed Wood of a base hit with a diving, tumbling grab in shallow center to end the third inning. Lagares also began the game by running a long way to track down consecutive fly balls, and he made all three putouts in the sixth.Pirates 5, Cardinals 2PITTSBURGH Pinch-hitter Ike Davis launched a tiebreaking, threerun homer off Seth Maness in the eighth inning, lifting the Pittsburgh Pirates over the St. Louis Cardinals 5-2. The Pirates won after reigning NL MVP Andrew McCutchen left in the fifth inning because of discomfort in his left ribs. Recently on the disabled list because of a rib problem, the center fielder ran into the wall earlier in the game. Davis sent a 2-2 pitch from Maness (5-3) deep over the fence in right-center for his ninth home run of the season and his third as a pinch-hitter. Tony Watson (9-1) couldnt protect an early lead after six-plus dominant innings by starter Gerrit Cole, but picked up the win. Mark Melancon worked the ninth for his 23rd save.Cubs 3, Reds 0CINCINNATI Travis Wood pitched six innings of two-hit ball against his former team for his first win in two months, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 3-0 victory over Johnny Cueto and the Cincinnati Reds.

Eric van den HoogenON TENNIS JCT series on the horizon Smith described Incognitos visit as informative, adding that the 2012 Pro Bowl selection with the Dolphins was able to answer all of the questions I had in the face-to-face meeting. While its unclear what will happen with Incognito moving forward, Smith and Licht stressed they felt fortunate to be able to add a player the caliber of Mankins. He has a history of a certain type of play in the league, Smith said, adding that the 10th-year pro will bring leadership on and off the field. We got better, kind of simple as that, the coach added. I like the direction our football team is heading. Mankins was a first-round draft pick of the Patriots in 2005 and has been selected for the Pro Bowl each of the past five seasons. He appeared in two Super Bowls and started all 130 regular season games and 17 postseason games hes played in during a nine-year stay with New England. Its very sad. Hes been here for a long time, Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis said. Ive only been here for a couple of months, but Mank is known around the league as being one of the best offensive linemen in the game, the cornerback added. Hes proven that, and hes done it for a long time. Revis played with Tampa Bay last season, so hes familiar with what New England is getting in return. Wright joined the Bucs as an undrafted free agent in 2013, starting eight games and finishing with 54 receptions for 571 yards and five touchdowns. Despite a productive rookie year, Wright became expendable after the Bucs signed veteran tight end Brandon Myers in free agency and then selected Austin Seferian-Jenkins in the second round of the draft. Hes great, man. He started for us down in Tampa Bay. ... Were getting a solid player who can catch, who can run and run great routes, Revis said. He was a wide receiver coming in and they switched him to tight end. He has a lot of speed at the tight end position. The Bucs will enter the season with at least four new starters on the offensive line, including both guards. Oniel Cousins and Patrick Omameh were listed as the starters before the trade for Mankins. Tackle Anthony Collins and center Evan Dietrich-Smith joined the team in free agency. BUCSContinued from Page B1 Growing up, he was my big sporting idol, Federer said. Having him here is unbelievably special. Aside from the Williams sisters, American tennis fans have not had much reason to cheer for their own in the latter stages of major tournaments in recent years. Thats why the occasional run by a young U.S. player think Melanie Oudin, wearing Believe on her sneakers in 2009 stirs interest at Flushing Meadows. Believing was the No. 1 thing that I had to do today, said Bellis, whose nickname CiCi is derived from the initials of her first and middle names, Catherine Cartan. Thats what my coach told me before the match also: Just go out there and believe that you can win. Bellis is still young enough that she plans on playing in the junior tournament in New York. She lost in the third round of that event a year ago; she lost in the first round of the Wimbledon girls tournament last month. But on Tuesday, there she was in front of a supportive, overflowing crowd on Court 6 at Flushing Meadows, taking it to Cibulkova, the runner-up at the Australian Open in January. I went into the match thinking it was going to be such a great experience, said Bellis, whose rapid-fire sentences tend to finish with a gurgle of laughter, but I never thought I would come out on top winning. Neither did her parents. Her mother, Lori, didnt attend the match because she gets too nervous watching in person, Gordon Bellis said. So Lori stayed at their hotel, getting updates via text from Gordon. She asked how bad it was going in the first set. And so I told her (CiCi) actually won the first set. She couldnt believe that, Gordon said. We were just thankful that she didnt get double-bageled. That was the first objective. After trailing 3-1 in the third set kind of a bummer, Bellis would say later she came back to even things, and then broke the 25-year-old Cibulkova in the final game. When it ended, Bellis crouched at the baseline and pumped her fists, then ran over to the stands for congratulatory hugs. I didnt expect her to play so aggressive today. I thought shes kind of a player whos just putting the ball back and running around, Cibulkova said. That didnt happen today. She was really aggressive on the court and that maybe surprised me in the first set. Bellis was making her main-draw tour-level debut, having earned a wild-card invitation from the U.S. Tennis Association by winning the USTA Girls 18s National Championship, the youngest to do since Lindsay Davenport also won it at 15 in 1991. Not since Anna Kournikova was 15 in 1996 had someone so young won a match at the U.S. Open. And not since Mary Joe Fernandez was that age in 1986 had an American done it. Now its time for her to refocus, not get too excited about this first round. Just get back to business, said Fernandez, an ESPN analyst. Next up for Bellis is a second-round match against 48th-ranked Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan. And Gordon Bellis said Lori might decide to attend that one. No word on what sort of rules Mom will have to follow. OPENContinued from Page B1 We worked very hard on improving our confidence, that no ball hitting the floor, so to me that was the big thing that stood out, Grey said. Our first pass following the serve we did excellent on, and our net, we worked very well at the net. As far as blocking, both teams were working very hard defensively and it usually came down to who was playing better at the net. Three consecutive service aces by Julia Eckart lifted Seven Rivers to a 6-2 advantage in the third set, but the Pirates battled right back to knot it at 6-all on Haley Colemans serve. It remained a tight set until three-straight Crystal River errors, two of them on kill attempts, allowed the Warriors to go up 16-12. The Pirates got no closer than three after that. Alyssa Gage paced Seven Rivers with a solid allaround performance, totaling eight kills, five blocks, 11 assists and 14 digs. Eckart added six kills and five service aces, Kim Iwaniec collected two kills, 13 assists, 11 digs and two aces, Tessa Kacer had nine digs, and Michaela Wallace got three kills and 10 digs. Cassidy Rash was tops for Crystal River with 11 kills, 11 digs and three aces. Other top performers for the Pirates included Abby Epstein with four kills and five blocks, Mercedes Scott with 10 digs, Olivia Townsend with nine digs, and Kaite Eichler with 14 assists and eight digs. On Thursday, Crystal River travels to Leesburg while Seven Rivers hosts Lecanto. PIRATESContinued from Page B1

Senior Kyle Kidd, a talent that has many Division I schools looking his way, led a Pirates team that finished the day with a 151. Nature Coast trailed with a 183 while Dunnellon finished with a 212. Kidd shot a 34, tied with Sharks leader, senior Jake Arnett, who enters his final season with Nature Coast as a threetime All County golfer in Hernando. Behind Kidd for the Pirates, junior Tyler Bertoch and fellow senior Kyle Velasco chipped in with a 38 each. Senior Matt Allen finished the day with a 41. Crystal River will take to the course again Thursday when it hosts Springstead.Quinn cut by DolphinsDAVIE Quarterback Brady Quinn says he has been released by the Miami Dolphins. Quinn announced the move Tuesday afternoon on Twitter, about an hour before the Dolphins had to meet an NFL deadline and officially pare their roster down to 75 players. They started the day with 88 spots on the roster. The Dolphins signed Quinn on Aug. 12. He completed all four of his pass attempts for 22 yards in his lone preseason appearance for Miami. The move essentially ensures that Matt Moore will be the backup to Ryan Tannehill when the season begins Sept. 7 against the New England Patriots.All-women sports show to launchNEW YORK CBS Sports Network will air an all-women sports show starting next month.

ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerEditors note: Parents, do you remember classes when you were in school? The curriculum and way of learning has changed. This story is part of an ongoing series where we take a look into diverse classes in Citrus County and what students are learning in the 2014-15 school year. CRYSTAL RIVER Who is Anna Garcia? How did she die? Thats what Crystal River High School freshman biomedical science class wants to know. Their science class is not the science class of 1980. No, they are part of a Project Lead the Way curriculum funded by a Race to the Top grant. According to instructor Marissa Balls syllabus, PLTW, offers a different approach to learning and teaching. Through activity-, projectand problem-based curriculum, PLTW gives students in kindergarten through high school a chance to apply what they know, identify problems, find unique solutions and lead their own learning. For teachers, our engaging, rigorous professional development model provides a tool to empower students and transform the classroom into a collaboration space where content comes to life. And the classroom comes to life two classrooms down as there is a young woman in her pink silky pajamas lying face down. Pills are scattered on the floor, an orange-red liquid is spilled and blood is splattered. Was she murdered? Who is responsible? Or did she die from natural causes? Thats the continuous question that Balls student medical examiners are trying to figure out through the fictional mannequin Anna Garcia. They have one semester to dissect and investigate her cause of death. They will examine fingerprints, blood, hair, shoeprints, fingerprints, drugs and various other typical crime scene scenarios. At the end they take all of the information they have documented in their computers and do a post analysis with a presentation on Annas cause of death, Ball said. The rigorous and relevant four-course PLTW Biomedical Science sequence allows students to investigate the roles of biomedical professionals as they study the concepts of human medicine, physiology, genetics, microbiology, and public health. Students engage in activities like investigating the death of a fictional person to learn content in the context of real-world cases. With this real-world knowledge, Ball hopes that her students will return to Citrus County with a broad range of medical careers. I want them to know that there are a multitude of opportunities out there for them within the medical fields besides the ones that they see on television, Ball said. They can take the information that they learned in this class and use it for an overarching goal to continue to work hard in high school and use it to better their lives and be successful and bring it back to Citrus County. We are an amazing county. I wish people could come inside our classrooms and see just how hard they work and how brilliant our students are, she continued.Contact Chronicle education reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-563-5660, ext. 1334, or eworthington@chronicleonline.com.

The new uniform policy adopted this year came after deliberation and communication with parents and faculty.

As football season heats up, The Mini Page takes a close look at how this popular American sport is played. Use this issue to guide you as you watch a game.What is football? Football is a complex team sport played in every corner of the United States. It is played by kids and adults alike. Many people begin playing football as kids and later play in high school. Thousands of athletes receive scholarships* to play in college. Many U.S. colleges and universities, large and small, have football programs that represent their schools. Is there is a college team near you?Footballs origins The first football games were played in the mid-1800s by a number of colleges in the United States and Canada. These versions of the game were often similar to soccer or rugby. There was no passing, only running and tossing the ball. In 1880, a coach and former player, Walter Camp, helped to set up many of the rules that are still a part of the sport today, including 11 men on the field, taking turns on offense, first downs and the line of scrimmage. About 25 years later, the forward pass was added to the game. Professional football soon became popular in many larger towns and cities, but college football was popular throughout the nation.*A scholarship is an amount of money given to pay for a students education. Some scholarships cover all costs of school, while others pay for only part of them. The football is an ovalshaped ball filled with air. Even though it is made of cowhide leather, a football is often referred to as a pigskin. Footballs have a set of laces sewn in to make them easier to grip and throw. The 1914 Washington & Jefferson College football team played against Rutgers University at the Polo Grounds in New York City on Nov. 28, 1914. Notice their uniforms. How are they different from todays uniforms? These players might have worn helmets, but they were not required for college players until 1939.photo courtesy Library of Congress Walter Camp played football at Yale University in Connecticut. Early players didnt use helmets or pads. Hundreds of players were killed playing the sport, and it was nearly outlawed. Camps rules helped make it safer for players.Following FootballAre You Ready? from The Mini Page 2014 Universal Uclick Mini SpyMini Spy and Alpha Mouse are enjoying a great football game!

The junior quarterback for the University of Oregon Ducks achieved many feats in his first two seasons, including twice winning first-team allleague honors from the Pacific 12 Conference. In 2013, Marcus became the first Duck to amass 4,000 yards of total offense in a single season. His 77 career touchdowns at Oregon are tied with the schools all-time mark. In just two seasons, this mighty Duck already owns the programs record for most rushing yards by a quarterback, with 1,467. For his hard work on the field and off, Mariotas Oregon teammates voted him the teams most inspirational player. More awards and honors likely await Mariota as his junior campaign gets underway. He is considered an early front-runner for the Heisman Trophy, college footballs highest individual award.

The defense tries to prevent the offense from doing so. To move closer to the end zone, a team has four chances, or downs, to move the ball 10 yards. If the offense moves the ball at least 10 yards, it gains a new set of downs. The line of scrimmage (SKRIHmej) is an imaginary line where the football is placed. The offense lines up on one side, and the defense is on the other. the ball into the end zone again for 2 extra points, instead of kicking it.

Offense: The offense tries to get the ball into the end zone for a touchdown. Defense: The defense works to stop the other teams offense. Special teams : These units come on the field for kicking plays: kickoffs, punts and field goal attempts. There are always 22 players on a football field at once 11 for each team. Each player has a specific job to do. In a game program, players names may be followed by abbreviations for their positions. Some abbreviations may be used for several players. For example, OL means offensive lineman and DL means defensive lineman.By the numbers A college football players number may help you identify his position. Professional numbering is similar. 1-49: Backs (quarterback, running back, wide receiver, cornerback, safety, linebacker) 50-59: Centers 60-69: Guards 70-79: Tackles (offensive tackle, defensive tackle) 80-99: Ends (tight end, defensive end) 40s and 90s: Kickers and puntersDefense Tackle (DT, DL) two tackles line up to the left and right of the football; they rush the quarterback, knock down passes or try to slow down a running back. Ends (DE, DL) two ends line up outside the defensive tackles; they rush the quarterback and try to force runners to the middle of the field. Linebacker (LB) inside or middle linebackers are behind the linemen; outside linebackers move beyond the ends; they may blitz, or run, into the backfield to disrupt the offenses play; also defend short passes. Cornerback (CB) two cornerbacks defend the left and right edges of the defensive formation; usually responsible for guarding the wide receivers. Safety (S) one or two safeties are the last line of defense; free safeties guard areas down the field against long passes and running plays; strong safeties cover tight ends and help stop runners.Wh s Wh on the FieldOffense Center (C, OL) the first person to touch the football; hikes, or snaps, the ball through his legs to the quarterback; blocks defensive linemen. Guard (G, OL) left and right guards block defensive linemen to protect the quarterback and create holes for running backs to run through. Tackle (OT, OL) left and right tackles block defenders for running backs; also responsible for protecting the quarterbacks blind side an area behind the thrower where he cant see. Tight end (TE) blocks like an offensive lineman on running plays; can also catch passes. Wide receiver (WR) often very fast and able to catch passes far down the field. Running back (RB) takes a hand-off from the quarterback, or may go out for a pass. Quarterback (QB) the leader of the offense; takes the snap from the center and may hand off the ball to a running back or throw a pass; may also run with the ball. Place kicker (PK) kicks the ball off a tee to begin the game or after a score; also kicks an extra point after a touchdown, or a field goal for 3 points. Punter (P) kicks the ball to the other team on fourth down if the offense fails to get a first down and the ball is too far away to try for a field goal.Special teams positions do special jobs Next week, The Mini Page finds out all about 3-D printing.

NEWS NOTES Special to the ChronicleThe Citrus County Board of County Commissioners proclaimed September as National Sewing Month in Citrus County. Many sewing organizations across the country offer classes, special sales events and participate in special sewing projects for charity events, bringing awareness to the community and its many needs. For several years, Citrus County sewing groups have donated items of clothing to the less fortunate schoolchildren. The Nature Coast Chapter of the Florida Sewing Sew-Ciety has participated in the Two Good Soles since its inception, and done work for area homeless missions. September was designated as National Sewing Month in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan. Pictured with members are Carol Jewell, Dee Cornell, Jan Squires and Carole Antis, who represent the American Sewing Guild, Florida Sewing Sew-Ciety and Cracker Quilters. National Sewing Month Special to the ChronicleThe Citrus County Board of County Commissioners recognized two Public Works employees at its regular meeting on Aug. 12 for their work in Santa Rosa County in May. Rod Worthington and Kenny Stark, both with the Division of Road Maintenance, were deployed to Santa Rosa County after Citrus County received a Mutual Aid Request for disaster recovery during springtime flooding. The two-man crew worked long hours in adverse conditions, maintaining numerous storm pumping stations; reports indicated they both performed their assigned duties in a very professional manner and represented Citrus County well. The Board of County Commissioners is appreciative of the hard work and dedication exhibited by both individuals. Pictured, from left, are BOCC commissioners Scott Adams, Joe Meek and Dennis Damato, Kenny Stark, Rod Worthington and commissioners Rebecca Bays and John JJ Kenney.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST27, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Tom Hodgkinson is a British writer who has a relaxed approach to life, letting it come to him. He said, We no longer sing and dance. We dont know how to. Instead, we watch other people sing and dance on the television screen. Christmas, which was once a festival of active enjoyment, has turned into a binge of purely passive pleasures. Do you agree with that? This week we are comparing active and passive defense. The bidding is the first piece of evidence. In todays deal, look at the auction and Wests hand. What should West lead against four spades? Norths three-heart response was a transfer bid, showing five or more spades and at least zero points. His three-no-trump rebid offered a choice of games. Here South would have done well to settle for three no-trump, which has nine top tricks. But it was normal to bid four spades with such weak clubs and the potential blockage in spades. It is very dangerous to lead around to a big balanced hand. West ought to select a trump. (A club is safe here, but I dislike leading from a jack.) South can make his contract if he plays with mirrors, catching West in a red-suit endplay. The curious may work out the details. But declarer is likely to use his two club entries to dummy to try each red-suit finesse and go down when they both fail. He would lose one heart, two diamonds and one club. However, if West leads actively, picking the heart four, he concedes the contract immediately.

We were not perfect parents, but consider ourselves to have been pretty good. Our kids grew up in a nice home where friends were welcome, and they were involved in church and extracurricular activities. Now that they have their own homes, my wife and I continue to help by babysitting and lending a hand when needed. But as we find ourselves aging and occasionally needing help from them, no help is forthcoming. Why? What makes adult children tune out the needs of aging parents? We feel hurt by their lack of caring. Confused Mom and Dad Dear Mom and Dad: Have you asked your children for specific help? Sometimes parents expect the children to know what they need, but the kids can be oblivious, assuming their parents are as competent and capable as they always have been. Also, some parents expect grown children with family obligations of their own to do chores that would consume every weekend, when the parents are perfectly able to hire someone to do these jobs. Kids resent this. Otherwise, please be direct. Say, We are finding it difficult to change the light bulbs in our house because we are unsteady on the stepladder. Could you come by one day this week and take care of that for us? Wed truly appreciate it. Most kids will step up when asked. Dear Annie: My 77-year-old grandmother is an incredibly caring and loving woman, and she expresses this through cooking. Granny cooks large meals every day, and if youre around, theres no chance to escape without eating at least one plateful. Dropping hints or saying you just ate, are on a diet or arent hungry doesnt work. She says, Eat it while its hot! or Its not that filling, and suddenly two more scoops of potato salad have appeared on your dish. I feel trapped. I dont want to hurt her feelings, because I know she does it out of love and because when she was growing up there wasnt always food in the house. But its no good gorging until I feel sick. It feels like shes trying to feed me to death. Help! Stuffed in Pennsylvania Dear Stuffed: You are right that Granny shows love through food, and it also gives her pleasure to see you gorge. But no matter how much food Granny puts on your plate, you are not obligated to finish it. Practice saying no sweetly but more convincingly. Spend some time taking one bite and pushing food around on your plate, and then sit back and say, Im stuffed! I cant eat one more thing. Shell insist. Youll repeat. Shell cajole. Youll repeat. Shell act hurt. Youll repeat. Ask whether you could take the food home (where you can do with it whatever you like). Tell her you love her. Ask her to talk to you about her day. But under no circumstances do you have to eat everything she puts in front of you. Dear Annie: This is for Mother in Iowa, whose daughter falsely accused her of physical abuse. What a child interprets as physical abuse may be different from what Mom recognizes. My mother thought it was OK to pull down my panties and spank me with a paddle in front of my father. I am sure neither she nor my father considered that physical or sexual abuse, but I do. She also bit my finger so hard one time that the teeth marks lasted for days. While I bear the scars, I do not think of her as an abuser, because I am sure she felt her behavior was sanctioned by the Bible and by society. Mother in Iowa may think what she did was normal, while her daughter may view it differently.

What has been the most rewarding or what has given you the most joy in what you do? There are so many working with FCA several years ago, being the director at the Citrus County Visitation Center, tutoring at IPS or teaching Sunday School at First Baptist I dont want to take the whole paper filling the many joys Ive had working with children and families through the years! I would have to say, though, that the work at the Visitation Center brought me the most joy,as I would see parents do what they needed to do to be reunited with their children and know our work there had been instrumental in that process.We often had time to listen and work with the case managers, the court system and the Guardian Ad Litem program to encourage these parents and love their children as they (the parents) cooperated with those who wanted to see them succeed.Who or what has had the greatest impact on how youve lived your life?Becky Mauney she lived in Marion, North Carolina, where I moved after I was married to Alan Woody in 1976. She was 63years old, but had more faith, more boldness than any person Id ever met!She was fiercely optimistic, fireyin spirit and had endless energy.She went into jails, juvenile centers and any place she felt she could share the gospel or help people. I wanted to learn from her, emulate her attitude and have that boldness in every situation.What are some funny or inspiring things that happened along the way? Some of the things my son said to me, such as when a friend and I had a huge disagreement and I guess I had said some things that my son took quite literally. I called the friend and asked her to come over so we could talk this out and get it settled. When she came to the door, my son called to me, Mom, Miss Evelyn is here and her mouth is not half as big as you said it was! Another time he told a nosy neighbor when she asked what I was doing (I was trying to get the last bit of ketchup out of the bottle) and he told her, Mom is in the kitchen hitting the bottle! Ive been inspired just this week as I worked at Vacation Bible School at church. I had the honor of working with two teenage girls who absolutely did an outstanding job teaching the children. They were enthusiastic, creative and displayed great leadership qualities. I was so encouraged as I watched our replacements,because they are dynamite!What words of wisdom do you have for other women on similar journeys? Wonderful words of encouragement from the Bible in Galatians 6:9: And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. From the old s quote: Keep on keepinon! Was there anyone special who helped mold you? What did you learn?My mother, Eva Marie Long.She instilled in me determination, optimism and humor. In spite of her circumstances, she was always happy.One of her best pieces of advice to me was:You are only as big as what it takes to bring you down. When I would tell her some of the circumstances I was facing, she would remind me Jo, I dont think thats big enough. When I encounter a situation to this day, with Gods help and my moms advice, Ive found that nothing is that big!CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWednesday, August 27, 2014 G19 WOMENOFIMPACT G2Wednesday, August 27, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE WOMENOFIMPACT 000J3HN Sending my sincere gratitude to every former and present client who have supported our salon.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWednesday, August 27, 2014 G3 WOMENOFIMPACT G18Wednesday, August 27, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE WOMENOFIMPACT What do you do? I am continuing the ministry my husband began in 1973 Mission Possible Inc.What was your reaction when you were notified about being chosen?Very surprised and delighted!How has your lifes path brought you to where you are today? Like most of us, I can look back now and be very grateful for the circumstances good and bad that shaped my life.Some of the good ones were great Christian teachers and schoolteachers who took the time to listen and advise me when they knew they could help. The bad circumstances served as teaching instruments and made me stronger,as I depended on my faith and believe that God is the master of circumstances in our lives.What challenges have you faced, and how did they influence the path youve taken?I grew up in a home with a parent who was an alcoholic and we were very poor.For many years,I didnt see this challengeas something I could ever benefit from. I also lost a child at birth, went through a divorce not long after that loss and had a 1-year-old son I raised as a single mom. All of these challenges benefited me,as I worked with hundreds of troubled teens and adults who needed to know that we do not live under our circumstances,but use them as stepping stones to climb over them as we rely on our faith in God. 2014 Women of Impact Jo Anna Woody Whats your name? Nickname?Jo Anna Woody (Jo)Where do you live? InvernessHow long have you been in Citrus County? Since 1981 See WOODY/ Page G19 000J34I As General Manager of our two popular local Radio stations, Citrus 95 and FOX Classic Hits 96.7 Laura Grady has worked extremely hard and has become an integral part of the community. Although the stations have been under the same ownership since 2000, Laura was the first General Manager to understand and implement our philosophy towards the community. That philosophy is to be a resource a nd asset in the community and to hold all employees to a high standard of integrity and professionalism Laura started in Radio with our company almost 9 years ago, rising through the ranks to become the stations top salesperson, and in 2012 was promoted to General Sales Manager and then General Manage r of Citrus 95 and The Fox 96.7 FM. One of Lauras greatest strengths has been mentoring our staff to enable them to grow and excel in t he challenging Broadcast Industry. Under Lauras leadership the station has experienced phenomenal growth, allowing us to relocate to a new 4500 square foot state of the art broadcast facility in Lec anto. Laura is active in the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce, and numerous charitable and business organizations working to improve the quality of life in Citrus County. Beyond her business accomplishments, Laura is an involved Mom, with a daughter in college, and a daughter in high school who has just left the country to participate in a Rotary Youth program in Croatia. I couldnt think of anyone that could represent our company better than Laura, and were proud that youve recognized her as one of the most admired women in our community.

What do you do? Im a job coach for the Citrus County School System. My position is within the Exceptional Student Education Department. Im currently assigned to CREST School, working in the Community Based Instruction Program. I travel daily with high school students to the Citrus County Chronicle. While at the Chronicle, students work on goals set by their Individualized Education Plan. Through coaching and mentoring, students gain work maturity skills that will increase their successful transition into employment after high school. Some examples of these skills include: social skills, time management and various workplace job skills. Because of this collaborative effort, these youths are given a positive atmosphere to learn and develop skills that I hope will give them confidence and knowledge to apply in their future endeavors.What was your reaction when you were notified about being chosen?My first thought was Really me? When the realization finally sank in, I became overwhelmed with emotion. Im so appreciative for the nomination and truly love my job and my co-workers! How has your lifes path brought you to where you are today? Through my career Ive always worked in public service. Most of my professional career I worked as a victim advocate a truly rewarding job. I like to believe I was given a gift of compassion to help others during struggles in their life. After starting a family I decided to become a stay-at-home mother. Around my sons second birthday, he was diagnosed with several special needs. I knew that when I returned to work I wanted to change my occupation and help children who faced similar challenges. I was lucky to fulfill that dream several years ago and now work at CREST.What challenges have you faced, and how did they influence the path youve taken?My biggest challenge is balance of work and family. I love to work, but my family has always come first. I left the CCSO after the adoption of my oldest son, Ethan (May 2004), and the surprise birth of our second son, Landon (September 2004), to become a stay-athome mom. After three years as a domestic engineer, I missed working and returned two nights a week at a local domestic violence shelter as a victim advocate.

Nickname?Angela Vincent (Angel)Where do you live? Citrus SpringsHow long have you been in Citrus County? 23 years See VINCENT/ Page G5always think of others. Always wanting to give back, I felt that 100 percent of my volunteer time,no matter where,was more valuable than writing a check to that same group.I also gained many leadership skills during my 18-year involvement with the Florida Dental Hygiene Association. What challenges have you faced, and how did they influence the path youve taken?In 1971, a car hit me as friends and I were walking home from a Young Life meeting.The driver of the car, a friend of mine, was also coming from the same meeting and he had a carload of other friends.I went flying into a grape vineyard post.My left leg was broken in four places and I had a gash in my head that required 13stitches. The way my small town reacted amazed me, and the way my spirit buoyed during that time was a lifechanging experience.I had to forgive my friend for the accident;after all, it was not intentional and I learned the power of love over ill will at Young Life.Who or what has had the greatest impact on how youve lived your life?The answer to that will always be my father.I was Daddys girl and we did everything together.We hunted, walked through the woods,ice-skated,slept under the stars, rode bikes together you name it,we did it together. Most importantly, though, Dad taught me to always look for the positive of each life experience, be it good or bad, and move forward with that positive lesson. Because of his age, 47 when I was born, I believe the wisdom he shared with me always had a true grounding that has carried me throughout mylife.What has been the most rewarding or what has given you the most joy in what you do? As founder and president of the Nature Coast Friends of Blues, the pure joy was feeling like the community benefitted from many afternoons of quality music and many local childrens organizations benefited from our annual donation. In dentistry,the joy I felt helping organize a free day of dentistry in a Crystal River dental office was overwhelming.We helped 97 people that day, and being part of that day of giving back still brings me joy today.Was there anyone special who helped mold you? What did you learn?Thelma Jerry was my boss and my friend for five years. Thelma and I would talk for hours about what life had to offer if you were willing to set achievable goals and reach them.She was an amazing woman and I loved her deeply for the time she took to guide me along lifes course. She was a notary and performed our marriage ceremony on May 23, 1981.What are some funny or inspiring things that happened along the way? In a local dental office where I worked, my boss allowed me to hang one of my artist husbands paintings on the wall.At the time, I had a painting of the back of a woman in a wooden tub pouring rinse water from a wooden bucket over her shoulder. The patient who inspired me and made me laugh was a retired physician who was living in a local nursing home.When he saw that painting, he wanted a closer look, so I handed it to him. After studying it for a while, he turned it over and told me my husband did not finish the painting,jokingly referring to the lack of the front of the woman on the back!We both got a good laugh out of that! Unfortunately, his oral care was not good.Knowing the nursing home where he lived,I was inspired to put together an evidencebased program on dental health to present to the CNAs who worked there. I kept doing this as time allowed at other local nursing homes. What words of wisdom do you have for other women on similar journeys? Always look forward with goodness in your heart and think of others and their needs.Recognize your own skills,whether from work, church or school,and put those skills to work.Go out there, make a difference and do it with passion MITCHELLContinued from Page G16 208 W.

He was diagnosed with autism in 2006 and a brain tumor in 2008. Im proud to say hes doing amazing! My personal experiences have helped mold me into being a more compassionate and patient person in my current job. I strive to help these youths believe that they can achieve anything despite their challenges!Who or what has had the greatest impact on how youve lived your life?My mother has been my greatest role model and made the most impact my life as a mother. Growing up, my father served in the military. We were proud of his service and grateful for the sacrifices he made to support our family to serve our country. Yet, the challenges my mom faced every day raising myself and my siblings was, and is, an inspiration to me. For months, she had to become the chauffer, handyman, chef and referee for our family. In addition, each of us suffered from health problems. For her relentless love, guidance and support she will always be the person that has had the most impact on my life.What has been the most rewarding or what has given you the most joy in what you do? Every day is a rewarding day at my job. My students enjoy going to the Chronicle and take great pride when working on the daily assignments given to them. Its amazing to watch these youths learn new things, gain confidence and build relationships that I know will benefit them in life. Was there anyone special who helped mold you? What did you learn?My husband, David, has been my greatest support and helped mold me into who I am today. We met when we were 18 and have been married more than 20 years! His constant love and support has allowed me to always follow my heart in life even when it didnt make much sense to him. Every decision he has made in his own career has been to solely benefit our family, especially our children. The strength of our marriage and his dedication to build a solid foundation for our family has given me the courage and strength to become the person I am today. What are some funny or inspiring things that happened along the way? My students inspire me every day. I love to watch their self-confidence grow and their enthusiasm to make the most of every day. I love sharing new experiences with them. One example: the students were asked to paint a platform to be used by veterans for an event but none of them had painted before. They worked hard on this job to make the staff proud and took pride in their finished project. On a funny note, my students like to play practical jokes on me! They know I get scared easily and I have to be very cautious when walking around work and not get a surprise scare from the students!What words of wisdom do you have for other women on similar journeys? Follow your heart! Ive found in life that your mind and your heart can work against each other. Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day. Life isnt about finding yourself, its about creating yourself. I work every day to better myself try to laugh in the confusion, smile through the tears and know that everything happens for a reason. My favorite quote, by an unknown author, is: Look at the past as a road of great memories and the future as untraveled dreams. VINCENTContinued from Page G4How long have you been in Citrus County?

What was your reaction when you were notified about being chosen?I felt blown away, stunned and very humbled. The variety of things I did to receive this award were because of my passion for helping others, not for my own gain.How has your lifes path brought you to where you are today?

I am the president and executive director of the We Care Food Pantry.What was your reaction when you were notified about being chosen?I was surprised and honored when I received the call that I was among those chosen for this award.How has your lifes path brought you to where you are today? I moved from New York to Florida to care for my ailing parents. I took care of them for 14 years, until they passed. The week after my mother died, I got a vision to get up and feed people, and that is just what I did. I assembled a core group of likeminded individuals, located food, formed a corporation and began my mission. I wish I could solve the problem and work myself out of a job, but that doesnt look likely in my lifetime.What challenges have you faced, and how did they influence the path youve taken?Raising awareness has always been a problem. People have a tendency to look at the less fortunate as lazy.I often hear people say, Let them get a job. My response to that has always been, Do you have a job for them? If so, I will get you a line of people to apply for it. Many labels are attached to the less fortunate, like those people. They are not those people, but our friends and neighbors wholife slapped in the face. Raising money will always be a serious challenge.The We Care Food Pantry is unfunded and run entirely by volunteers. No one takes a pay check. We also do not sell food.We raise money to run our programs and give the food away freely.Who or what has had the greatest impact on how youve lived your life?God is my pilot.

I am the general manager of Citrus 95 and FoxClassic Hits radio stations.What was your reaction when you were notified about being chosen?At first, not knowing what to expect, I was nervous because I am more of a behind-the-scenes person. Then I felt incredibly honored to be a part of such a prestigious group of women.How has your lifes path brought you to where you are today? I have tried many things over the years,including wine sales, the restaurant industry, real estate and massage therapy.Raising two children on my own was difficult, working and at the same time being a good parent. My company offered me a sales position that allowed me to make the income I needed to raise my children,as well as have a chance to work a schedule that allowed me to be there for my family. A great side benefit is that I have come to know and love my community because of the opportunities my career has brought to me. Now that I am in the position of general manager for my company,I feel I am able to make a difference with charities and nonprofit groups in the community by creating public service announcements and getting the word out about what is happening or needed in the community to solve a problem.What challenges have you faced, and how did they influence the path youve taken?I faced the challenges ofgetting my degree, raising my children as a single mother and trying to work and be a good parent. All of this gave me the will and desire to pursue my current position as a general manager of a great company.Was there anyone special who helped mold you? What did you learn from her?My older sister Karen has always been a great role model. She works as a chemical engineer and has risen to a top management position in tough industry. She is always there for me with words of wisdom and I learn what works by watching how she handles her work and home life. She has given me the best management advice and has been a mentor when I have challenges.Who or what has had the greatest impact on how youve lived your life? My parents. They have always been there for me. I am so lucky to have a loving and close relationship with them,as well as their guidance.What has been the most rewarding or what has given you the most joy in what you do? I have found it incredibly rewarding to help businesses grow and prosper. Another rewarding area is working with my staff. I strive to treat my employees as I would like to be treated. Its been both a challenge and a great learning experience working with different personalities and growing their abilities so everyone works together as a cohesive team. Another really important area is helping the different nonprofits and the amazing things we have been able to help and partner on. Its so rewarding when we can help them achieve their goals and give back. I also love that we entertain and reach so many people with radio. Its very rewarding to get letters and phone calls from our listeners. When they come out to our remotes and tell us how they love our stations and what we do it makes my job feel incredibly worthwhile.What are some funny or inspiring things that happened along the way? I work with a very creative staff and it takes some interesting personalities to handle the challenges of the radio industry. Every day there is something to enjoy and laugh about. What words of wisdom do you have for other women on similar journeys? My advice is to work hard, learn to recognize opportunities, surround yourself with good people, make goals for your personal and professional life and strive to find balance between your career and your home life. Help where you can,when you can,and know it is always returned tenfold. 2014 Women of Impact Laura Grady Whats your name? Nickname?Laura GradyWhere do you live?

If you ever have time, I will tell you about the miracles I have been blessed to be a part of.What has been the most rewarding or what has given you the most joy in what you do? Many of our volunteers are also clients and Ienjoy seeing everyone coming together for a common cause. I enjoy helping people regain their dignity and improve their living conditions and life. It is exciting when I hear that because a client received food, she could put gas in her neighbors car and get a job. Helping hungry children is critical. When a child is only thinking about an apple for lunch, it affectstheir cognitive ability in school.Senior citizens are also hard-hit by a lack of food.Many times they must choose between food and medicine.Weprovide pet food so our clients do not have to share their food.I could go on and on, with the homeless and the people who work but cannot earn a living wage.We try to offer a hand up, not a hand out.Was there anyone special who helped mold you? What did you learn?The people I am helping changed me.The more involved I become in their lives, the more I understand the magnitude of the problems they encounter.I realized that cooperation among the existing services is necessary to truly help a person.Food is only one link in a chain of events that is necessary to change a life. That is why we partner with other agencies to expand our programs, like the Health Department to provide a dental and medical bus.What are some funny or inspiring things that happened along the way? I have been blessed to witness miracles.Let me recount a story that I tell everyone. We currently feed approximately2,600 people every month thats 1,000 families.Last year, we brought in 2.6 million pounds of food. I knew we needed a central warehouse to store and process everything, sowe started looking. We narrowed our search to 13 properties, but for some reason none of the buildings worked out.I became discouraged and one night I just plain yelled at God: I told him that He got me into this mission and where was He? After I got over my fit of anger, I just went to bed. The next day I pulled myself up and went to work. A woman I knewwalked into my office and asked me if I found the land for my warehouse yet. I told her no, but I told her that I yelled at God last night and He will direct me to do something. She asked me if I yelled at God around 4 p.m. I was stunned and said yes. She said that she heard me!She told me she had a piece of property and had a closing on it that morning in two hours. She said she was told not to sell it, but to donate it to me for the new food bank and asked if I wanted the property. We immediately went to look at the property and who wouldnt want a fiveacre parcel that was perfect? She went to her closing and the purchaser needed more time to come up with the closingmoney.Needless to say, she transferred the property to the We Care Food Pantry by 1 p.m. that day. That was the first of many miracles.What words of wisdom do you have for other women on similar journeys? Find a cause you really believe in andbe prepared to be changed by your journey. TOTOContinued from Page G6What do you do? Mary Kay Cosmetics Senior Sales Director since 1977What was your reaction when you were notified about being chosen?It is a thrill and honor to be recognized in such a meaningful way a very humbling experience.How has your lifes path brought you to where you are today? I always wanted to be an entrepreneur and Mary Kay Cosmetics presented that opportunity in 1977. I am fortunate to have found success and am still with Mary Kay. We migrated from Jamaica, West Indies,to New York. When my husband retired in 2003, we relocated to Citrus County. Being new in the county, I was encouraged to join the Chamber of Commerce. I became a Chamber Ambassador soon thereafter and made key friendships and acquaintances through the Chamber. I currently am chair for the Ambassador program and a Chamber board member. The African-American Club also provided a great opportunity to meet and greet others, while holding several key positions and helping the club to grow. Currently, I am the president of the group of approximately 100 members and was instrumental in developing the countys first Kwanzaa celebration, realized last December.What challenges have you faced, and how did they influence the path youve taken?Operating a home-based business and having two small children took commitment and discipline. My husband was very supportive and helped whenever and wherever he saw the need.Who or what has had the greatest impact on how youve lived your life? Having the pleasure of seeing my children grow up to be responsible adults and work to enrich the lives of others is an immeasurable reward in my life.What has been the most rewarding or what has given you the most joy in what you do? We should all express appreciation and gratitude for what we have family, health, the beauty of life and remember that the best of us should help the rest of us succeed. I am on the scholarship committee of the Chambers Business Womens Alliance. We encountered a need for additional resources to use for nontraditional education opportunities. The Penny Harvest Fund was started to assist girls from Camp E-NiniHassee, but has been expanded. Penny Harvest monies support continuing education for Citrus County womenwith small, one-time grants to qualify for employment, further career education or to achieve a career boost. To date,that fund has garnered in excess of $5,000 pennies pack power! Living in Citrus County for the past 11 years has been a joy-filled experience. No matter how hectic my day has been, I find comfort in the peace and serenity of home, my various gardening attempts and meaningful conversations with family, friends and neighbors.Was there anyone special who helped mold you? What did you learn?My parents, of course, were my biggest examplemy father being an entrepreneur himself and my mother a stay-at-home mom with eight children!It was instilled in us to always conduct ourselves with dignity and treat others with respect. I also thank the many loyal friends who gave their unendingsupport; I value the many life lessons along the way.What are some funny or inspiring things that happened along the way? Upon relocating to Citrus County,I had to learn to adjust to the leisurely pace of life, to which I was unaccustomed, and learn to fill up the car at the gas station. I used whatever methods I could to have my husband use my vehicle when it needed filling up;however, he soon caught on. I realized that if I did not learn to do it myself, and quickly, Id surely have to learn to push. That was an awakening!What words of wisdom do you have for other women on similar journeys? If you want to live your dreams, first decide what you want, then take action, even small steps daily. Dont let fear stop you;you will make mistakes,but use them as stepping stones to fail forward to your desired level of success. 2014 Women of Impact Lillian Smith Whats your name?

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWednesday, August 27, 2014 G13 WOMENOFIMPACT G8Wednesday, August 27, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE WOMENOFIMPACT What do you do? I retired from banking after 25years in the profession. I am a community volunteer now.What was your reaction when you were notified about being chosen?Wow! This award belongs to so many. I will accept it on behalf of all the volunteers who help with our Blessings program. How has your lifes path brought you to where you are today? During my professional career, it was an expectation to be a part of your community. In my 20s and 30s, I headed up United Way campaigns for the bank I worked for and was active in the Chamber and many other organizations, as they related to my career. In my 40s and 50s, I began to be a bit more selective in the things I became involved in because I wanted the work to be more meaningful to the things that were near and dear to my heart. When I left the banking industry in 2005, I knew why I was leaving. I wanted to pursue those things that would benefit my community and be helpful to those in need as it relates to hunger and homelessness. Those were my passions. Little did I know, I would soon be influenced by NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness),our local organization and its members. Hunger, homelessness and mental illness are many times related, and therefore my path has led me to seek out individuals and organizations that can help those suffering in these areas. 2014 Women of Impact Debby Lattin Whats your name? Nickname?Debbie Lattin (Deb)Where do you live? InvernessHow long have you been in Citrus County? 32 years See LATTIN/ Page G9community needsis definitely a challenge for most women;it was andisfor me. Getting out of ones comfort zone can be daunting. Having loving friends and family who are aware of our weaknesses and mistakes and who firmly, but gently, point out ways that we can correct our mistakes can influence us to grow. It could be in ways we may not particularly want, but were veryglad when the growing has taken place.Who or what has had the greatest impact on how youve lived your life?Religion, family, reading and travel come to mind because they are intricately intertwined in helping me deal with the ups and downs of life.What has been the most rewarding or what has given you the most joy in what you do? Being able to share seems to give mea lot of fun and joy. Helping with the planning for the rejuvenation of Floral Citys library and Linear Park and seeing the positive difference thathas come about,knowing that because of Citrus County Blessings children will be able to eat on the weekends, and that my part, although small, is making a difference. Being able to see the oldest residence in the county,as well as knowing it is being restored to be an example of how the early settlers of this county lived brings me joy. Working with garden club members who arehelping bring more flowers to Floral City and seeing more flowers as a result brings me joy. Walking into the new library and seeing childrens programs going on, with some working on computers or displayingtheir artwork in the library, brings me joy.The Friends of the Library work helps provide books/ materials the wonderful librarians utilize to make our library a marvelous activity center for ourvillage.Was there anyone special who helped mold you? What did you learn?Because Ive lived in several places,there have been many who have taken me, I think, as a project and helped me with whatever I needed at that particular time. I learned perseverance and patience fromseveral including my grandmother, mother, mother-in-law(from Floral City), Biblical women and our two daughters. Women are strong,but often dont want to make mistakes.I learned from some of these women to learnfrom my mistakes and gain resolve and tenacity, which certainly helps when working to complete a municipal or other project.What are some funny or inspiring things that happened along the way? Everywhere I see people going on with their daily lives in a positive manner, despite all sorts of calamities that have befallen them, inspires me.They are daily heroes. The serendipity of meeting people you know, or even relatives in places where they are unexpected,puts a smile on my face. One example is when my husband and I had just moved to the town that we eventually lived in for 40 years, and I went to a bakery. Because it was a very popular place,there was a line to pay for the items.I was standing in line when the man behind me asked if I used to be Lynn (my maiden name). I replied that I still was,but gave him my married name. He then said who he was and he had been in college with me in Mississippi more than 10 years before.That sort of thing I really enjoy.What words of wisdom do you have for other women on similar journeys? Pray a lot, read the Bible and help wherever you can. BASSETTContinued from Page G12 Visit Our Website at: tammyyoungtax.net 7888 W.

What challenges have you faced, and how did they influence the path youve taken?The biggest challenge I have faced is my own fear of the work to be done and how to overcome such overwhelming emotions. Tapping into the things I learned in banking and the people I knew from that career path, I knew to surround myself with folks who were smarter than me, cared about their community and would make a commitment to do the work necessary to change the lives of people in need and give them hope for their future. Who or what has had the greatest impact on how youve lived your life?My parents. They would do anything for anyone. I grew up in a large family..5 brothers and a sister. We didnt have diddly squat but we knew we were loved and we knew we could count on each other. Seeing how my parents treated everyone equally and took in friends of my siblings who had fallen on hard times or fed them if they were hungry or whatever really had an impact me. The message was always to help those in need if you could.What has been the most rewarding or what has given you the most joy in what you do? The most rewarding thing about the work I do is working with volunteers. The work that has been completed by so many hands has taught me so much. Working with the local chapter of NAMI in 2005 to bring LightHouse to our community was an eye-opener. LightHouse is a facility that works around a 9-to-5 day and allows its members who are 18 and older with a diagnosed, severe and persistent mental illness to go and rebuild their lives, become active and participating members of their community and gives them hope for a better life. Working with this organization to bring this type of facility here, I saw first-hand how the stigma of mental illness and living with a family member or having the illness yourself impacts society and those around you The LightHouse is a treasure in our community and has helped so many rebuild their lives. Working with the small group of individuals that led to our Community Food Bank becoming a reality in Citrus County gives me great joy. A committee of 5 turned into a community workforce of 50 and from there a Board of Directors to lead the charge for finally getting the job done. There was much collaboration needed by many organizations and individuals and leadership made it happen. We should all be very proud to have such a state of the art facility in our county. And finally, the Citrus County Blessings program has brought joy to children who are hungry on the weekends when not in school to participate in the federally funded meal program. Hopefully, these children come to school on Monday morning ready to learn because they are not as hungry as they might be otherwise without the food provided by this program. This gives each and every volunteer who works with our Blessings program a sense of accomplishment and joy. It just doesnt get any better than that. Was there anyone special who helped mold you? What did you learn?I cant say there was any one person who molded me. You learn from observing people you respect in business and elsewhere and try to lead by their examples they have shown you. What are some funny or inspiring things that happened along the way? Oh my gosh, we would be here forever if I began to tell you about those things. I will tell you this, whenever something funny or inspiring happens, we share it immediately. That is what keeps folks engaged, inspired and committed.What words of wisdom do you have for other women on similar journeys? I have been blessed to be able to give back to my community because I have a family that loves me no matter what challenge I bring to the table for us to become involved in. I couldnt do this work without their support, financial and other. When I was working with NAMI, a fellow Board member and I were reflecting on our lives now and when we were pursuing our careers. He said, Remember the three stages of life: Survival, Success and Significance. I have passed this forward as often as I can. When youre in your 20s youre struggling to survive; when youre in your 40s and 50s, you are, hopefully, reaping the rewards of a successful career; and when you get to be my age, you get to do the things that are really significant and meaningful to you. You have to know who you are & what is important to you. Hopefully, all things will fall in place for you.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWednesday, August 27, 2014 G11 WOMENOFIMPACT G10Wednesday, August 27, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE WOMENOFIMPACT What do you do? I am the school crossing guard at the corner of Main Street and Line Avenue in Inverness.What was your reaction when you were notified about being chosen?I did not know what to say at first. I know my husband said something to me about the contest and a friend of ours asked me a few questions but nothing more was said. I really did not believe it would amount to much. Was I wrong! I think of it as a great honor.How has your lifes path brought you to where you are today? I retired in Sumter County from more than 40 years of driving a school bus. We moved to Citrus County and I heard about a job opening as a crossing guard. I did not think about the heat, rain, cold and etc., just that I would be working with students again. It is, however, a very enjoyable job.What challenges have you faced, and how did they influence the path youve taken?I cannot think of any real challenges other than the ordinary ones of everyday life. I enjoyed driving the school bus and working as a crossing guard. I feel very lucky and am happy with the life I have had.Who or what has had the greatest impact on how youve lived your life? Was there anyone special who helped mold you? What did you learn?In answer to both questions, my grandparents. I lived with them as a child while my father was in the service. I was in school and did not want to travel with my parents. My grandma was a stern but loving person who taught me household chores, the respect of people and animals and the love of God. My grandpa was a kind and loving man who taught me how to garden and harvest what we grew. A very happy time in my life.What has been the most rewarding or what has given you the most joy in what you do? The respect, laughter and love of life the students have given me through the years. I work with a great group of people who see to the safety of the students, the buses and the traffic. At the end of the day when everyone is home and safe is a joyful reward.What are some funny or inspiring things that happened along the way? Most of the funny things that happened to me involved the students. One was a couple of years ago. Some of the band members crossed the street in front of the Taco Bell. There was one band member at the corner waiting for the light. I told him to tell the others that if they did it again I was going to see the band leader. A while later they came back to cross the street. When they got to the corner,they said they were going to do penance. All 12 of them flopped down on the sidewalk and started doing pushups. I looked around and wondered what people were thinking. After five pushups I told them to get up. I have many memories of funny things that have happened.What words of wisdom do you have for other women on similar journeys? My grandma had a saying: The only person who never makes a mistake is the person who is doing nothing. I have always remembered that and I believe that if you want to do something badly enough, give it a try. Learn from your mistakes and try again. 2014 Women of Impact Happy Hammond Whats your name?

I was a young mother who, after some years,found herself a single mom raising two children alone. I worked sometimes two jobs and went to school at night. I wanted to move to Florida years before I did, but when I found out I was going to be a grandmother, I felt I was needed there.Going through struggles and hard times helped me want to help others.What challenges have you faced, and how did they influence the path youve taken?Being brought up mostly by my grandmother in a three-generational home and being a single mother and trying to juggle work, school and children helped me to want to become someone who could help other people.A couple of life experiences that otherwise could have had a negative effect, I used to be a positive influence.Who or what has had the greatest impact on how youve lived your life? My husband, Jeff.He has given me the confidence to follow my dreams.He lets me be myself and he understands me.He gets me and makes me feel special.He is my rock and my strength and he keeps me sane and grounded. Meeting him is one of the best things that has happened in my life and marrying him is one of the best decisions I have made in life.What has been the most rewarding or what has given you the most joy in what you do? The ability to help people whether it is with a kind word or smile, rides to a doctor, help with a computer, at work or in everyday life.Doing a little extra to help someone in need, to make their day better is reward.It is a win-win for me and for them.What are some funny or inspiring things that happened along the way? When I moved to Florida and began looking for a church, I happened upon a Congregational Church which is where I went up north. Unfortunately or fortunately, I didnt have the service time right and showed up at the end of the service. I was greeted by such a friendly group of ladies that I knew I had to go back and so I did.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWednesday, August 27, 2014 G13 WOMENOFIMPACT G8Wednesday, August 27, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE WOMENOFIMPACT What do you do? I retired from banking after 25years in the profession. I am a community volunteer now.What was your reaction when you were notified about being chosen?Wow! This award belongs to so many. I will accept it on behalf of all the volunteers who help with our Blessings program. How has your lifes path brought you to where you are today? During my professional career, it was an expectation to be a part of your community. In my 20s and 30s, I headed up United Way campaigns for the bank I worked for and was active in the Chamber and many other organizations, as they related to my career. In my 40s and 50s, I began to be a bit more selective in the things I became involved in because I wanted the work to be more meaningful to the things that were near and dear to my heart. When I left the banking industry in 2005, I knew why I was leaving. I wanted to pursue those things that would benefit my community and be helpful to those in need as it relates to hunger and homelessness. Those were my passions. Little did I know, I would soon be influenced by NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness),our local organization and its members. Hunger, homelessness and mental illness are many times related, and therefore my path has led me to seek out individuals and organizations that can help those suffering in these areas. 2014 Women of Impact Debby Lattin Whats your name?

InvernessHow long have you been in Citrus County? 32 years See LATTIN/ Page G9community needsis definitely a challenge for most women;it was andisfor me. Getting out of ones comfort zone can be daunting. Having loving friends and family who are aware of our weaknesses and mistakes and who firmly, but gently, point out ways that we can correct our mistakes can influence us to grow. It could be in ways we may not particularly want, but were veryglad when the growing has taken place.Who or what has had the greatest impact on how youve lived your life?Religion, family, reading and travel come to mind because they are intricately intertwined in helping me deal with the ups and downs of life.What has been the most rewarding or what has given you the most joy in what you do? Being able to share seems to give mea lot of fun and joy. Helping with the planning for the rejuvenation of Floral Citys library and Linear Park and seeing the positive difference thathas come about,knowing that because of Citrus County Blessings children will be able to eat on the weekends, and that my part, although small, is making a difference. Being able to see the oldest residence in the county,as well as knowing it is being restored to be an example of how the early settlers of this county lived brings me joy. Working with garden club members who arehelping bring more flowers to Floral City and seeing more flowers as a result brings me joy. Walking into the new library and seeing childrens programs going on, with some working on computers or displayingtheir artwork in the library, brings me joy.The Friends of the Library work helps provide books/ materials the wonderful librarians utilize to make our library a marvelous activity center for ourvillage.Was there anyone special who helped mold you? What did you learn?Because Ive lived in several places,there have been many who have taken me, I think, as a project and helped me with whatever I needed at that particular time. I learned perseverance and patience fromseveral including my grandmother, mother, mother-in-law(from Floral City), Biblical women and our two daughters. Women are strong,but often dont want to make mistakes.I learned from some of these women to learnfrom my mistakes and gain resolve and tenacity, which certainly helps when working to complete a municipal or other project.What are some funny or inspiring things that happened along the way? Everywhere I see people going on with their daily lives in a positive manner, despite all sorts of calamities that have befallen them, inspires me.They are daily heroes. The serendipity of meeting people you know, or even relatives in places where they are unexpected,puts a smile on my face. One example is when my husband and I had just moved to the town that we eventually lived in for 40 years, and I went to a bakery. Because it was a very popular place,there was a line to pay for the items.I was standing in line when the man behind me asked if I used to be Lynn (my maiden name). I replied that I still was,but gave him my married name. He then said who he was and he had been in college with me in Mississippi more than 10 years before.That sort of thing I really enjoy.What words of wisdom do you have for other women on similar journeys? Pray a lot, read the Bible and help wherever you can. BASSETTContinued from Page G12 Visit Our Website at: tammyyoungtax.net 7888 W.

It is exciting when I hear that because a client received food, she could put gas in her neighbors car and get a job. Helping hungry children is critical. When a child is only thinking about an apple for lunch, it affectstheir cognitive ability in school.Senior citizens are also hard-hit by a lack of food.Many times they must choose between food and medicine.Weprovide pet food so our clients do not have to share their food.I could go on and on, with the homeless and the people who work but cannot earn a living wage.We try to offer a hand up, not a hand out.Was there anyone special who helped mold you? What did you learn?The people I am helping changed me.The more involved I become in their lives, the more I understand the magnitude of the problems they encounter.I realized that cooperation among the existing services is necessary to truly help a person.Food is only one link in a chain of events that is necessary to change a life. That is why we partner with other agencies to expand our programs, like the Health Department to provide a dental and medical bus.What are some funny or inspiring things that happened along the way? I have been blessed to witness miracles.Let me recount a story that I tell everyone. We currently feed approximately2,600 people every month thats 1,000 families.Last year, we brought in 2.6 million pounds of food. I knew we needed a central warehouse to store and process everything, sowe started looking. We narrowed our search to 13 properties, but for some reason none of the buildings worked out.I became discouraged and one night I just plain yelled at God: I told him that He got me into this mission and where was He? After I got over my fit of anger, I just went to bed. The next day I pulled myself up and went to work. A woman I knewwalked into my office and asked me if I found the land for my warehouse yet. I told her no, but I told her that I yelled at God last night and He will direct me to do something. She asked me if I yelled at God around 4 p.m. I was stunned and said yes. She said that she heard me!She told me she had a piece of property and had a closing on it that morning in two hours. She said she was told not to sell it, but to donate it to me for the new food bank and asked if I wanted the property. We immediately went to look at the property and who wouldnt want a fiveacre parcel that was perfect? She went to her closing and the purchaser needed more time to come up with the closingmoney.Needless to say, she transferred the property to the We Care Food Pantry by 1 p.m. that day. That was the first of many miracles.What words of wisdom do you have for other women on similar journeys? Find a cause you really believe in andbe prepared to be changed by your journey. TOTOContinued from Page G6What do you do? Mary Kay Cosmetics Senior Sales Director since 1977What was your reaction when you were notified about being chosen?It is a thrill and honor to be recognized in such a meaningful way a very humbling experience.How has your lifes path brought you to where you are today? I always wanted to be an entrepreneur and Mary Kay Cosmetics presented that opportunity in 1977. I am fortunate to have found success and am still with Mary Kay. We migrated from Jamaica, West Indies,to New York. When my husband retired in 2003, we relocated to Citrus County. Being new in the county, I was encouraged to join the Chamber of Commerce. I became a Chamber Ambassador soon thereafter and made key friendships and acquaintances through the Chamber. I currently am chair for the Ambassador program and a Chamber board member. The African-American Club also provided a great opportunity to meet and greet others, while holding several key positions and helping the club to grow. Currently, I am the president of the group of approximately 100 members and was instrumental in developing the countys first Kwanzaa celebration, realized last December.What challenges have you faced, and how did they influence the path youve taken?Operating a home-based business and having two small children took commitment and discipline. My husband was very supportive and helped whenever and wherever he saw the need.Who or what has had the greatest impact on how youve lived your life? Having the pleasure of seeing my children grow up to be responsible adults and work to enrich the lives of others is an immeasurable reward in my life.What has been the most rewarding or what has given you the most joy in what you do? We should all express appreciation and gratitude for what we have family, health, the beauty of life and remember that the best of us should help the rest of us succeed. I am on the scholarship committee of the Chambers Business Womens Alliance. We encountered a need for additional resources to use for nontraditional education opportunities. The Penny Harvest Fund was started to assist girls from Camp E-NiniHassee, but has been expanded. Penny Harvest monies support continuing education for Citrus County womenwith small, one-time grants to qualify for employment, further career education or to achieve a career boost. To date,that fund has garnered in excess of $5,000 pennies pack power! Living in Citrus County for the past 11 years has been a joy-filled experience. No matter how hectic my day has been, I find comfort in the peace and serenity of home, my various gardening attempts and meaningful conversations with family, friends and neighbors.Was there anyone special who helped mold you? What did you learn?My parents, of course, were my biggest examplemy father being an entrepreneur himself and my mother a stay-at-home mom with eight children!It was instilled in us to always conduct ourselves with dignity and treat others with respect. I also thank the many loyal friends who gave their unendingsupport; I value the many life lessons along the way.What are some funny or inspiring things that happened along the way? Upon relocating to Citrus County,I had to learn to adjust to the leisurely pace of life, to which I was unaccustomed, and learn to fill up the car at the gas station. I used whatever methods I could to have my husband use my vehicle when it needed filling up;however, he soon caught on. I realized that if I did not learn to do it myself, and quickly, Id surely have to learn to push. That was an awakening!What words of wisdom do you have for other women on similar journeys? If you want to live your dreams, first decide what you want, then take action, even small steps daily. Dont let fear stop you;you will make mistakes,but use them as stepping stones to fail forward to your desired level of success. 2014 Women of Impact Lillian Smith Whats your name?

I am the president and executive director of the We Care Food Pantry.What was your reaction when you were notified about being chosen?I was surprised and honored when I received the call that I was among those chosen for this award.How has your lifes path brought you to where you are today? I moved from New York to Florida to care for my ailing parents. I took care of them for 14 years, until they passed. The week after my mother died, I got a vision to get up and feed people, and that is just what I did. I assembled a core group of likeminded individuals, located food, formed a corporation and began my mission. I wish I could solve the problem and work myself out of a job, but that doesnt look likely in my lifetime.What challenges have you faced, and how did they influence the path youve taken?Raising awareness has always been a problem. People have a tendency to look at the less fortunate as lazy.I often hear people say, Let them get a job. My response to that has always been, Do you have a job for them? If so, I will get you a line of people to apply for it. Many labels are attached to the less fortunate, like those people. They are not those people, but our friends and neighbors wholife slapped in the face. Raising money will always be a serious challenge.The We Care Food Pantry is unfunded and run entirely by volunteers. No one takes a pay check. We also do not sell food.We raise money to run our programs and give the food away freely.Who or what has had the greatest impact on how youve lived your life?God is my pilot.

I am the general manager of Citrus 95 and FoxClassic Hits radio stations.What was your reaction when you were notified about being chosen?At first, not knowing what to expect, I was nervous because I am more of a behind-the-scenes person. Then I felt incredibly honored to be a part of such a prestigious group of women.How has your lifes path brought you to where you are today? I have tried many things over the years,including wine sales, the restaurant industry, real estate and massage therapy.Raising two children on my own was difficult, working and at the same time being a good parent. My company offered me a sales position that allowed me to make the income I needed to raise my children,as well as have a chance to work a schedule that allowed me to be there for my family. A great side benefit is that I have come to know and love my community because of the opportunities my career has brought to me. Now that I am in the position of general manager for my company,I feel I am able to make a difference with charities and nonprofit groups in the community by creating public service announcements and getting the word out about what is happening or needed in the community to solve a problem.What challenges have you faced, and how did they influence the path youve taken?I faced the challenges ofgetting my degree, raising my children as a single mother and trying to work and be a good parent. All of this gave me the will and desire to pursue my current position as a general manager of a great company.Was there anyone special who helped mold you? What did you learn from her?My older sister Karen has always been a great role model. She works as a chemical engineer and has risen to a top management position in tough industry. She is always there for me with words of wisdom and I learn what works by watching how she handles her work and home life. She has given me the best management advice and has been a mentor when I have challenges.Who or what has had the greatest impact on how youve lived your life? My parents. They have always been there for me. I am so lucky to have a loving and close relationship with them,as well as their guidance.What has been the most rewarding or what has given you the most joy in what you do? I have found it incredibly rewarding to help businesses grow and prosper. Another rewarding area is working with my staff. I strive to treat my employees as I would like to be treated. Its been both a challenge and a great learning experience working with different personalities and growing their abilities so everyone works together as a cohesive team. Another really important area is helping the different nonprofits and the amazing things we have been able to help and partner on. Its so rewarding when we can help them achieve their goals and give back. I also love that we entertain and reach so many people with radio. Its very rewarding to get letters and phone calls from our listeners. When they come out to our remotes and tell us how they love our stations and what we do it makes my job feel incredibly worthwhile.What are some funny or inspiring things that happened along the way? I work with a very creative staff and it takes some interesting personalities to handle the challenges of the radio industry. Every day there is something to enjoy and laugh about. What words of wisdom do you have for other women on similar journeys? My advice is to work hard, learn to recognize opportunities, surround yourself with good people, make goals for your personal and professional life and strive to find balance between your career and your home life. Help where you can,when you can,and know it is always returned tenfold. 2014 Women of Impact Laura Grady Whats your name? Nickname?Laura GradyWhere do you live?

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWednesday, August 27, 2014 G5 WOMENOFIMPACT G16Wednesday, August 27, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE WOMENOFIMPACT job coach was influenced by the challenges my son Landon had to deal with as a young boy. He was diagnosed with autism in 2006 and a brain tumor in 2008. Im proud to say hes doing amazing! My personal experiences have helped mold me into being a more compassionate and patient person in my current job. I strive to help these youths believe that they can achieve anything despite their challenges!Who or what has had the greatest impact on how youve lived your life?My mother has been my greatest role model and made the most impact my life as a mother. Growing up, my father served in the military. We were proud of his service and grateful for the sacrifices he made to support our family to serve our country. Yet, the challenges my mom faced every day raising myself and my siblings was, and is, an inspiration to me. For months, she had to become the chauffer, handyman, chef and referee for our family. In addition, each of us suffered from health problems. For her relentless love, guidance and support she will always be the person that has had the most impact on my life.What has been the most rewarding or what has given you the most joy in what you do? Every day is a rewarding day at my job. My students enjoy going to the Chronicle and take great pride when working on the daily assignments given to them. Its amazing to watch these youths learn new things, gain confidence and build relationships that I know will benefit them in life. Was there anyone special who helped mold you? What did you learn?My husband, David, has been my greatest support and helped mold me into who I am today. We met when we were 18 and have been married more than 20 years! His constant love and support has allowed me to always follow my heart in life even when it didnt make much sense to him. Every decision he has made in his own career has been to solely benefit our family, especially our children. The strength of our marriage and his dedication to build a solid foundation for our family has given me the courage and strength to become the person I am today. What are some funny or inspiring things that happened along the way? My students inspire me every day. I love to watch their self-confidence grow and their enthusiasm to make the most of every day. I love sharing new experiences with them. One example: the students were asked to paint a platform to be used by veterans for an event but none of them had painted before. They worked hard on this job to make the staff proud and took pride in their finished project. On a funny note, my students like to play practical jokes on me! They know I get scared easily and I have to be very cautious when walking around work and not get a surprise scare from the students!What words of wisdom do you have for other women on similar journeys? Follow your heart! Ive found in life that your mind and your heart can work against each other. Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day. Life isnt about finding yourself, its about creating yourself. I work every day to better myself try to laugh in the confusion, smile through the tears and know that everything happens for a reason. My favorite quote, by an unknown author, is: Look at the past as a road of great memories and the future as untraveled dreams. VINCENTContinued from Page G4How long have you been in Citrus County?

What was your reaction when you were notified about being chosen?I felt blown away, stunned and very humbled. The variety of things I did to receive this award were because of my passion for helping others, not for my own gain.How has your lifes path brought you to where you are today?

What do you do? Im a job coach for the Citrus County School System. My position is within the Exceptional Student Education Department. Im currently assigned to CREST School, working in the Community Based Instruction Program. I travel daily with high school students to the Citrus County Chronicle. While at the Chronicle, students work on goals set by their Individualized Education Plan. Through coaching and mentoring, students gain work maturity skills that will increase their successful transition into employment after high school. Some examples of these skills include: social skills, time management and various workplace job skills. Because of this collaborative effort, these youths are given a positive atmosphere to learn and develop skills that I hope will give them confidence and knowledge to apply in their future endeavors.What was your reaction when you were notified about being chosen?My first thought was Really me? When the realization finally sank in, I became overwhelmed with emotion. Im so appreciative for the nomination and truly love my job and my co-workers! How has your lifes path brought you to where you are today? Through my career Ive always worked in public service. Most of my professional career I worked as a victim advocate a truly rewarding job. I like to believe I was given a gift of compassion to help others during struggles in their life. After starting a family I decided to become a stay-at-home mother. Around my sons second birthday, he was diagnosed with several special needs. I knew that when I returned to work I wanted to change my occupation and help children who faced similar challenges. I was lucky to fulfill that dream several years ago and now work at CREST.What challenges have you faced, and how did they influence the path youve taken?My biggest challenge is balance of work and family. I love to work, but my family has always come first. I left the CCSO after the adoption of my oldest son, Ethan (May 2004), and the surprise birth of our second son, Landon (September 2004), to become a stay-athome mom. After three years as a domestic engineer, I missed working and returned two nights a week at a local domestic violence shelter as a victim advocate.

Always wanting to give back, I felt that 100 percent of my volunteer time,no matter where,was more valuable than writing a check to that same group.I also gained many leadership skills during my 18-year involvement with the Florida Dental Hygiene Association. What challenges have you faced, and how did they influence the path youve taken?In 1971, a car hit me as friends and I were walking home from a Young Life meeting.The driver of the car, a friend of mine, was also coming from the same meeting and he had a carload of other friends.I went flying into a grape vineyard post.My left leg was broken in four places and I had a gash in my head that required 13stitches. The way my small town reacted amazed me, and the way my spirit buoyed during that time was a lifechanging experience.I had to forgive my friend for the accident;after all, it was not intentional and I learned the power of love over ill will at Young Life.Who or what has had the greatest impact on how youve lived your life?The answer to that will always be my father.I was Daddys girl and we did everything together.We hunted, walked through the woods,ice-skated,slept under the stars, rode bikes together you name it,we did it together. Most importantly, though, Dad taught me to always look for the positive of each life experience, be it good or bad, and move forward with that positive lesson. Because of his age, 47 when I was born, I believe the wisdom he shared with me always had a true grounding that has carried me throughout mylife.What has been the most rewarding or what has given you the most joy in what you do? As founder and president of the Nature Coast Friends of Blues, the pure joy was feeling like the community benefitted from many afternoons of quality music and many local childrens organizations benefited from our annual donation. In dentistry,the joy I felt helping organize a free day of dentistry in a Crystal River dental office was overwhelming.We helped 97 people that day, and being part of that day of giving back still brings me joy today.Was there anyone special who helped mold you? What did you learn?Thelma Jerry was my boss and my friend for five years. Thelma and I would talk for hours about what life had to offer if you were willing to set achievable goals and reach them.She was an amazing woman and I loved her deeply for the time she took to guide me along lifes course. She was a notary and performed our marriage ceremony on May 23, 1981.What are some funny or inspiring things that happened along the way? In a local dental office where I worked, my boss allowed me to hang one of my artist husbands paintings on the wall.At the time, I had a painting of the back of a woman in a wooden tub pouring rinse water from a wooden bucket over her shoulder. The patient who inspired me and made me laugh was a retired physician who was living in a local nursing home.When he saw that painting, he wanted a closer look, so I handed it to him. After studying it for a while, he turned it over and told me my husband did not finish the painting,jokingly referring to the lack of the front of the woman on the back!We both got a good laugh out of that! Unfortunately, his oral care was not good.Knowing the nursing home where he lived,I was inspired to put together an evidencebased program on dental health to present to the CNAs who worked there. I kept doing this as time allowed at other local nursing homes. What words of wisdom do you have for other women on similar journeys? Always look forward with goodness in your heart and think of others and their needs.Recognize your own skills,whether from work, church or school,and put those skills to work.Go out there, make a difference and do it with passion MITCHELLContinued from Page G16 208 W.

I am continuing the ministry my husband began in 1973 Mission Possible Inc.What was your reaction when you were notified about being chosen?Very surprised and delighted!How has your lifes path brought you to where you are today? Like most of us, I can look back now and be very grateful for the circumstances good and bad that shaped my life.Some of the good ones were great Christian teachers and schoolteachers who took the time to listen and advise me when they knew they could help. The bad circumstances served as teaching instruments and made me stronger,as I depended on my faith and believe that God is the master of circumstances in our lives.What challenges have you faced, and how did they influence the path youve taken?I grew up in a home with a parent who was an alcoholic and we were very poor.For many years,I didnt see this challengeas something I could ever benefit from. I also lost a child at birth, went through a divorce not long after that loss and had a 1-year-old son I raised as a single mom. All of these challenges benefited me,as I worked with hundreds of troubled teens and adults who needed to know that we do not live under our circumstances,but use them as stepping stones to climb over them as we rely on our faith in God. 2014 Women of Impact Jo Anna Woody Whats your name?

What has been the most rewarding or what has given you the most joy in what you do? There are so many working with FCA several years ago, being the director at the Citrus County Visitation Center, tutoring at IPS or teaching Sunday School at First Baptist I dont want to take the whole paper filling the many joys Ive had working with children and families through the years! I would have to say, though, that the work at the Visitation Center brought me the most joy,as I would see parents do what they needed to do to be reunited with their children and know our work there had been instrumental in that process.We often had time to listen and work with the case managers, the court system and the Guardian Ad Litem program to encourage these parents and love their children as they (the parents) cooperated with those who wanted to see them succeed.Who or what has had the greatest impact on how youve lived your life?Becky Mauney she lived in Marion, North Carolina, where I moved after I was married to Alan Woody in 1976. She was 63years old, but had more faith, more boldness than any person Id ever met!She was fiercely optimistic, fireyin spirit and had endless energy.She went into jails, juvenile centers and any place she felt she could share the gospel or help people. I wanted to learn from her, emulate her attitude and have that boldness in every situation.What are some funny or inspiring things that happened along the way? Some of the things my son said to me, such as when a friend and I had a huge disagreement and I guess I had said some things that my son took quite literally. I called the friend and asked her to come over so we could talk this out and get it settled. When she came to the door, my son called to me, Mom, Miss Evelyn is here and her mouth is not half as big as you said it was! Another time he told a nosy neighbor when she asked what I was doing (I was trying to get the last bit of ketchup out of the bottle) and he told her, Mom is in the kitchen hitting the bottle! Ive been inspired just this week as I worked at Vacation Bible School at church. I had the honor of working with two teenage girls who absolutely did an outstanding job teaching the children. They were enthusiastic, creative and displayed great leadership qualities. I was so encouraged as I watched our replacements,because they are dynamite!What words of wisdom do you have for other women on similar journeys? Wonderful words of encouragement from the Bible in Galatians 6:9: And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. From the old s quote: Keep on keepinon! Was there anyone special who helped mold you? What did you learn?My mother, Eva Marie Long.She instilled in me determination, optimism and humor. In spite of her circumstances, she was always happy.One of her best pieces of advice to me was:You are only as big as what it takes to bring you down. When I would tell her some of the circumstances I was facing, she would remind me Jo, I dont think thats big enough. When I encounter a situation to this day, with Gods help and my moms advice, Ive found that nothing is that big!CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWednesday, August 27, 2014 G19 WOMENOFIMPACT G2Wednesday, August 27, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE WOMENOFIMPACT 000J3HN Sending my sincere gratitude to every former and present client who have supported our salon.
