NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerWith more than 20,000 veterans in Citrus County and 111,000 in Congressional District 11, U.S. Rep. Richard Nugent, R-Brooksville, hopes to hear from them all, or at least as many as will write, call or email him their opinions, comments and/or suggestions about local Veterans Affairs (VA) medical services. Years ago, we had a meeting with (then Congresswoman) Ginny Brown-Waite about the VA clinic in Lecanto, which was just a little house, said local veteran Chris Gregoriou, who recently spoke to Congressman Nugent about VA inefficiencies. We (veterans) formed a coalition and got the veterans organizations together in uniform and went to the county commission and told them they needed to buy the Brown School, renovate it and get the VA clinic moved in there, which they did. We were successful with that, and now here we go again. Gregoriou is referring to problems he and other local veterans encounter trying to get timely medical care. For example, he said, if a veteran needs an X-ray, he or she is sent to The Villages or Gainesville often a full days trip if the veteran goes as part of a group on the DAV MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS State Rep.

Justice follows winding path following troopers 1973 murder in county MIKEARNOLD ChronicleOne of the more widereaching and disturbing chapters in Citrus Countys history occurred a little over 40 years ago on a secluded side road off U.S.19 near the Levy County line. The story stretches from Oklahoma to Miami and back to Citrus County. Floridas Legislature and Supreme Court are involved and so is the Federal District Court of Appeals in Atlanta. The current governor of Massachusetts even had a role in the outcome. Lives were lost, humble men became reluctant heroes and historical legal precedents were set. Its December 1973, and the story begins in Oklahoma, where two small-time criminals, Carl Ray Songer and Ronald Jones, walk away from a work-release program. High on drugs and booze, the pair head to Miami in a 1965 twodoor Chevy Impala. Eventually Songer and Jones, weary of the partying road trip, turn back toward Oklahoma. Out of gas and exhausted, they pull onto a Citrus County dirt road off U.S.19, two miles south of the Cross Florida Barge Canal Bridge. My God, theyre shooting himRichard Clark Starling and Ralph Morris, whove been tracking deer on their hunting trip, stop to look for their dogs. They spot Florida State Trooper Ronald Gordon Smith approaching a blue car parked along the side road they are traveling. Smith approaches the vehicle cautiously with holster unsnapped and right hand resting on his pistol. He taps on the passenger side window. A head pops up and the trooper motions for Jones, 20, to exit the car. Smith takes Jones to the back of the car, checks his identification and asks him to move away from the vehicle while he heads Richard NugentU.S. representative.

WeeklyROUNDUP Week in state government: The inevitable battle begins BRANDONLARRABEE The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE With the unofficial beginning of campaign season just around the corner, Florida voters headed to the polls this week to choose their nominees for governor and seats in the Legislature. Or, at least, to finish the predetermined coronations in many of those races. There never seemed to be any real danger that either of the leading gubernatorial candidates would lose their primaries. And virtually every incumbent on the ballot Tuesday was still standing on Wednesday. But the election wasnt the only battle that moved into a new phase. As candidates began to turn their attention to the broader electorate, opponents of the states de facto school-voucher program were going from the court of public opinion to the actual courts. Almost four months after the Legislature followed through on a promise to expand eligibility for the voucher program, groups opposed to the move filed a lawsuit that could lead to the entire system being overturned.NOW FOR THE MAIN EVENTFor the most part, there were few surprises in the primaries Tuesday night. Republican Gov. Rick Scott and former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist, now a Democrat, cruised through primaries against lesser-known candidates. Crist easily defeated former Senate Minority Leader Nan Rich and was officially welcomed by his new party as its nominee. Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a congresswoman from Broward County, praised Crist and runningmate Annette Taddeo as working-class champions. Charlie and Annette have embraced policies that will help Floridas middleclass families, a stark contrast to the current governor, Republican Rick Scott, who is beholden to special interests and radical tea party ideology, she said in a statement. Scott handily defeated two obscure GOP opponents, Yinka Abosede Adeshina and Elizabeth CuevasNeunder. But the Scott teams primary focus has long been on Crist. The next few months are about talk versus action, Scott said. That means Florida will have a choice between a governor who sent our state into a tailspin and a governor who gets results. In a marginally competitive statewide race, former Department of Children and Families Secretary George Sheldon beat House Minority Leader Perry Thurston in the Democratic primary for attorney general. I believe the attorney general is the peoples lawyer, not the governors lawyer, and not the Legislatures lawyer, Sheldon told supporters during a victory party at the Wine Loft Wine Bar in Tallahassee. Help me give Pam Bondi the job she really wants, as an anchor on Fox News. Bondi wasted little time in both congratulating Sheldon and challenging him to a debate. The voters will have a clear choice between candidates in this election, and they deserve to hear directly from us on the distinct difference in visions and leadership that each candidate will offer to the attorney generals Office, Bondi said in a prepared statement. Races in the House provided the sole state-level incumbent to go down and the usual bit of Florida elections drama. In Central Florida, Rep. Ricardo Rangel, D-Kissimmee, was defeated in his bid for a second term by John Cortes, vice chairman of the Democratic Hispanic Caucus of Florida. State Democratic Party Chairwoman Allison Tant seemed just fine with Cortes beating the incumbent. From his time as a police officer to his extensive work as an activist in Osceola County, John has always put his fellow community members ahead of himself, Tant said in a statement. I look forward to working with John to ensure that the residents of District 43 continue to have representation that puts the middle class first this fall. Meanwhile, the costly and bitterly fought Republican primary in Duval Countys House District15 turned into a nailbiter between Jay Fant, a tea partystyle candidate, and Paul Renner, who had much of the local establishment behind him. Fant, who loaned his campaign $375,000, ended up with a two-vote margin of victory after a manual recount and is now almost certain to replace Rep. Daniel Davis, R-Jacksonville.SCHOOLING THE ELECTORATEScott didnt wait until he had officially dispatched his challengers to start rolling out what will clearly be one of the central themes of his campaign. He unveiled an education agenda Monday that included promises to review the number of tests being administered to Florida students and to take further steps to rein in the cost of college if he wins a second term in November. We want to make sure that our students have every opportunity to succeed in the classroom and in their careers, and we want to make sure our teachers have every tool they need to make that possible, Scott said. The call for an investigation of standardized testing is noteworthy, given that Republicans interested in education reform have long looked at assessments as a way to judge how well schools are educating children. In 2011, Scott signed a bill that more closely tied teacher pay to student performance on standardized tests. A brochure outlining Scotts proposals seemed to place the blame for the amount of testing on local school districts. But Kathleen Oropeza, co-founder of the advocacy group Fund Education Now, said blaming local school districts was disingenuous, because many of the tests they require are tied to state laws. Districts will have to create tests for some courses under the teacher-pay law that Scott signed, Oropeza said. On higher education, Scott said he would push for a requirement that colleges outline the costs of textbooks and other materials before students register for classes. In his official capacity, the governor joined Education Commissioner Pam Stewart on a jaunt across the state to welcome students back to school.

For information, call 352746-8400.BradentonOfficials name deputy involved in shootingAuthorities have named the Tampa Bay-area deputy who fatally shot a man who was wielding a samurai sword during a domestic battery call. The Bradenton Herald reported 32-year-old Sgt. Brady McGabe, a 12-year veteran of the Manatee County Sheriffs Office, was identified by the sheriffs office. McCabe works in the patrol division. He remains on paid administrative leave during the investigation. Authorities said that deputies responded to a Bradenton home Thursday after a woman called authorities claiming that her son had attacked her. As deputies approached the home, officials say 31year-old Terry M. Sellars Jr. came out the front door and charged them with a large sword over his head. McGabe fired at Sellars several times. Sellars was declared dead at the scene.Orlando Two killed, six injured in crashTwo people are dead and six more were taken to a hospital following a morning crash between a passenger van and a semi-truck. Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Wanda Diaz said in a statement the agency responded to the crash on Interstate 95 in Ormond Beach Saturday morning. The two fatalities were both adults. The six people injured were taken to Halifax Hospital. From staff and wire reports Page A3SUNDAY, AUGUST 31, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Special to the ChronicleCitrus Memorial Health System, Local 4562 Professional Firefighters of Citrus County and the Citrus County Sheriffs Office are gearing up for the fifth annual 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb and Fitness Challenge. This years event will be at Citrus Memorial hospital on Sunday, Sept. 14, with registration beginning at 7 a.m. The event is held each year to honor the 343 firefighters, 60 law enforcement officers, eight emergency medical technicians and 125 military personnel who perished in the World Trade Center Towers and Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001. Participants in this grueling fitness challenge are tasked with climbing 110 flights of stairs to symbolize the floors of the World Trade Center towers. Many firefighters who participate will have the added challenge of completing the climb in full gear. The Professional Firefighters of Citrus County are putting on this athletic challenge to bring awareness to the profession of first responders and firefighters, as well as memorialize those lost on 9/11, said driver engineer Nicholas Faso of the Citrus County Sheriffs Office Fire Rescue Division. Were thankful to community members who have participated alongside us in years past and look forward to an even bigger and better event this year as we climb what is essentially a very emotional vertical 5K. Members of the community and fitness enthusiasts are encouraged to participate in the climb alongside emergency personnel or cheer from the sidelines to motivate participants. During the climb, families can enjoy refreshments, fire apparatus displays, health information and a free Kids Firefighter Challenge where children will have the opportunity to compete in an obstacle course and complete their own combat challenge. The Kids Firefighter Challenge includes an inflatable obstacle course, firefighter sled and an opportunity for kids to save a victim with the help of a local firefighter. All participants will receive a childrens firefighter helmet, wristband and event sticker. Registration for the climb begins at 7 a.m. and the event starts at 8 a.m. with a group photo, dedication and prayer, followed by a brief moment of silence. Additional moments of silence will be observed during the event at 8:46 a.m., 9:03 a.m., 9:37 a.m. and 10:03 a.m. to remember those who lost their lives during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Theres no doubt this event is strenuous even for those in peak physical condition, said Citrus Memorial spokeswoman Katie Mehl. The event is both physically and emotionally taxing; participants will leave with a renewed admiration for our first responders. As they trek up the equivalent of 110 flights, climbers will carry a picture tag of one of the 343 fallen firefighters with them. Water, towels and fruit will be available at various intervals and an auxiliary rest area will be located at the mid-point of the climb. Those interested in participating can register online at www.imathlete.com/events/citrusfitnesschallenge for a $35 registration fee, which includes a donation to the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation, commemorative T-shirt, wristband, event patch and sticker. Day-of registration will be $45. Special to the ChronicleDo you have a safety concern regarding a particular Citrus County intersection or roadway? Do you see a possible need for new or replacement lighting, striping or signs on a particular street to improve pedestrian or bicycle safety? If the answer to any of those questions is yes, or if you are interested in hearing about traffic safety initiatives in the county, you are invited to attend the next meeting of the West Central Community Traffic Safety Team (CTST) from 1 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 10, at the Sheriffs Emergency Operations Center in Lecanto. The teams are multidisciplinary, integrating the efforts of the four E disciplines that work in highway safety: engineering, enforcement, education/public information and emergency services. By working together with interested citizens and other traffic safety advocates within their communities, the CTSTs help to solve local traffic safety problems related to drivers, vehicles and roadways. One common goal of each Community Traffic Safety Team is to reduce the number and severity of traffic crashes within its community. The West Central Florida CTST conducts education and enforcement campaigns involving red-light running, driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs and traffic safety. It also participates in Buckle Up Florida and You Drink, You Drive, You Lose sustained enforcement efforts. All interested persons are welcome to attend. To be included on the agenda or for more information, email Rhonda Grice at Rhonda.grice@dot.state.fl.us, or contact Sue Littnan at 352-563-9939, ext. 235, or slittnan@elc-naturecoast.org.

HIP TO BE ON THE SQUARE STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the Chronicle Associated PressORLANDO The latest data on home prices is a mixed bag for Florida. A report released by the research firm RealtyTrac shows that while Miami had some of the biggest increases in home prices, other parts of Florida had among the highest rates of distressed sales. Median home prices in Miami were up 19 percent in July compared to a year ago. However, Lakeland and the Fort Myers area had among the highest rates of distressed and short sales. The rate was 30 percent in Lakeland and almost 28 percent in Fort Myers. A property sale is distressed if it involves foreclosure, and a short sale occurs when a home is sold for less than the amount owed on the property. Latest home price data a mixed bag for Florida

Or it could have been Michael Bays sequel-reboot hybrid Transformers: Age of Extinction, the lone movie to even approach $1 billion globally. But really, the movie of the summer was Star Wars: Episode VII. Even though its not due in theaters for more than a year, no other film captured the popcorn-hunger of moviegoers quite like J.J. Abrams resurrection of George Lucas space opera. As the blockbuster-tocome went into production over the summer, every bit of casting news was eagerly consumed; every hint of its plot was carefully parsed. Nothing can stop it, not even the broken leg of an aged Hans Solo ( Harrison Ford), at the mercy of a mechanical door on his trusty Millennium Falcon, no less. The rabid interest for Star Wars is good news for Hollywoods 2015. No so much for its 2014. When the season sputters to a close on Monday, the summer box office regardless of whatever is added to the coffers by weekend front-runner Guardians will be about 15 percent down from last years summer, making it Hollywoods worst summer in at least seven years. Why did this summer fail to ignite at the box office? Here are some take-aways: THE MOVIES SIMPLY WERENT GOOD ENOUGH: Maybe we had a lot of titles that looked good on paper, says Dan Fellman, head of domestic distribution for Warner Bros.The self-mocking Guardians, starring Chris Pratt, and the operatic apocalyptic tale Dawn of the Planet of the Apes won the most cheers from moviegoers and critics alike. SEQUELS DIDNT POP: Make no mistake about it: Sequels still rule the summer. Of the top 10 films at the box office, how many do you think were original? Zero. The most popular original movie was the Seth Rogen comedy Neighbors, in 11th place. But many sequels also showed growing audience fatigue. THE CENTER IS SHIFTING: Two of the top movies of the year (Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The LEGO Movie) were released in spring. The studios are starting to realize: Lets take advantage of the soft spots in the calendar, says Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak. Not only that, theyre also increasingly focusing overseas. Transformers was launched not in North America but in China, where it was also partially shot. And it was rewarded for it: The film made more money in China than in North America.Comedian Morgan still struggling after crashTRENTON, N.J. An attorney for Tracy Morgan says the former Saturday Night Live actor is having a tough time recovering from a June accident on the New Jersey Turnpike that left a fellow comedian dead. Attorney Benedict Morelli tells The Star-Ledger newspaper Morgan relies on a wheelchair and it may be months before he can fully walk again.Chocolate Factory draft releasedLONDON An unused chapter of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has been released 50 years after Roald Dahls childrens novel was first published. The fifth chapter, from a 1961 draft, describes an extra room in the factory called the Vanilla Fudge Room. The draft also showed Charlie originally went into the factory with his mother, not his grandfather. The chapter was published in the Guardian newspaper Saturday.

Members of the public wishing to attend the rally can get more information at www.charliecrist.com/ bill-clinton-sept5.Historic ship to become museumJACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville City Council has agreed to allow an historic U.S. Navy guidedmissile destroyer to be moored on the banks of the St. Johns River, where it will be used as a maritime museum. The Florida Times-Union reported that the council voted 16-1 to allow the Downtown Investment Authority to move the USS Adams to town. The ship will be moored by the vacant Maxwell House plant. Joe Snowberger, commodore of the Jacksonville Historic Ship Association, says the Navy should turn the ship over within six months. The group will then work to refurbish the vessel with the goal of displaying it on the river by the end of 2015. Floral City, where the twolane road meanders through farmland, an occasional development and scant businesses. Sure, Smith says, that may be the case today. But decades from now, he believes, the potential exists for residents and business to swarm to Citrus from the south but they wont if the roadway isnt ready. Smith, in a guest column appearing in todaysChronicle, calls for the state to immediately study widening U.S.41 between Brooksville and just south of Inverness. He also said the study should include bypasses for both Brooksville and Floral City. Im kind of pushing a vision of balancing of economics to the east side of both counties, Smith said Friday. I want to make sure the horse is actually in front of the cart. Smith wrote that he read recently that many residential transplants to Citrus County are coming from South Florida. He said Citrus and Hernando counties could benefit from a stronger road system on U.S.41, and that the discussion should start now. All these things need to be discussed now before theres a need, he said. The Hernando-Citrus Metropolitan Planning Organization, or MPO, placed the Floral City bypass last on a list of 13 projects it wants funded in Citrus County. Officials said they wanted it on the list to make it eligible for a state planning study, which is scheduled for 2017 at a $1million cost to the state. Smith said the MPO should make the Floral City bypass No.1 on its list so it receives the study sooner. The MPOs No.1 project is continuing the Suncoast Parkway through Citrus County. No.2 is widening U.S.41 from State Road 44 in Inverness halfway to Hernando. Josh Wooten, president and chief executive officer of the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce, was surprised to hear Smith is angling for more attention on U.S.41 south of Inverness than north of Inverness. Im all for proper planning, but we have issues within our own borders right now that need to be taken care of promptly, he said. If the state has money for a study on U.S.41 south, it should be redirected for the construction of road widening between Inverness and Hernando. Incoming Citrus County commissioner Scott Carnahan, whose district includes Floral City, adamantly opposes a Floral City bypass study. Jimmie T. Smith is out of his mind! Carnahan said Friday. I dont think the residents of Floral City want that.Smith: Lets have some visionSmith would not say if he favors road-widening on U.S.41 between Brooksville and Inverness before widening the same road north of Inverness. He said once the study concludes, its up to local officials who make up the MPO to decide priorities. If I had my druthers, I would have it towards the top of the list, he said. Current traffic patterns show a significant difference between U.S.41 south and U.S.41 north. According to county traffic counts from 2012, the most recent data available, about 9,000 U.S. vehicles pass daily through the intersection at County Road48 in Floral City and only 3,100 daily vehicles cross the Citrus-Hernando county line. U.S.41 north of Inverness, however, shows about 14,600 to 16,600 vehicles a day traveling between S.R. 44 and Independence Boulevard. And C.R.491, which is scheduled for widening between S.R. 44 and C.R.486, has nearly 15,000 vehicles a day. Wooten said chamber members are consistent in their road priorities: Suncoast Parkway; U.S.41 between Hernando and Inverness; C.R.491 widening in Lecanto; slowing traffic through Floral City. As for Smiths concerns that Citrus and Hernando counties will be caught off guard if not preparing U.S.41 south for growth, Wooten said thats not how business leaders look at it. Im not feeling it and Im not hearing it, Wooten said. Told that Smith said a study would gather residents opinions, Carnahan said he could do that himself. I need to set up a town hall meeting in my district and get the opinions of the people there, he said. Carnahan said Smith is using the U.S.41 issue to help with his 2016 state Senate campaign. Smith has already announced hell run to replace Sen. Charlie Dean, who is being forced out due to term limits. Hes running for senator and coming out with these big ideas, Carnahan said. He needs to think about what the people want and not what he wants. Smith, however, said leadership is planning for years ahead. Lets have some vision, he said. Its going to happen. You cant stop growth. My job is to provide a vision to get us going.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014 A5 Do you want to have gorgeous, straight teeth in just 6 months?

Mackie, who celebrated her 100th birthday earlier this year, was born Feb.16, 1914, in Winchester, New Hampshire, to Ruth and Arthur Smith.

SANDYSTRICKLAND The Florida Times-UnionJACKSONVILLE Her mother was the hardest one to do. Connie Jones went through a box of tissues as she styled her silver hair and deftly applied makeup. What normally would have taken her 20 minutes took two hours. She cried, reached for a tissue, cried some more, reached for another tissue and talked to her as she worked. It was her final gift to her 83-year-old mother. She had been very ill, but she looked absolutely stunning, Jones said. Jones has made thousands of others look their best before being laid to rest. For almost 30 years, she worked in a profession that required skill, sensitivity and steely nerves. She was a hairdresser and makeup artist for many of Jacksonvilles funeral homes until her recent retirement. The 66-year-old saw it as a calling. God gave me this gift, and the last thing you can do for people whove passed is to make them beautiful, Jones said. At first, the funeral director went into the preparation room with her. Eventually, she was comfortable enough to go in alone. I got to the point that I could probably sleep in the funeral home, Jones said. The person is not going to scare you. You are going to scare yourself. I got through it, and the good Lord was right there with me. The Jacksonville native has been a hairdresser since 1968 when she went to work for Ginos Hair Fashion in the Gateway Shopping Center. Her husband, John Thornton, a Marine, was killed in Vietnam in 1970. At the time, their daughter Shelly was 18months old, and she decided to open her own salon, Styles by Shell, at 63rd and Main streets in 1971. George H. Hewell Sr. handled the arrangements for her husbands funeral and occasionally asked if she would do someones hair. Friends frequently asked her to work on their relatives. Meanwhile, she still had her shop and put in long hours doing both. Around 1985, Hewell asked her to become full time. George Hewell Sr. taught me so much, she said. Then I got into doing not only hair but funerals and visitations. I learned how to fold flags. I drove the hearse. I really enjoyed all aspects of the business. She closed her salon in 1987, but still worked for a friend a couple of days a week. Her reputation spread among funeral directors, and Corey-Kerlin hired her, as well. A few years later, Jacksonville Memory Gardens did the same. Then it was Hardage-Giddens, and she was traveling to 17 funeral homes from Orange Park to Arlington to the Northside. Jones, who stopped doing live clients in 1995, was on call seven days a week and never knew from day to day which funeral home would need her. Before she began, the bodies were embalmed and the hair washed. If still wet, she blew it dry. She used a curling iron, gels and spray to style the hair. If need be, she touched up the color or dyed it all over. Some family members gave her recent pictures to work from, some 50-year-old ones and some a verbal description of what they wanted. Since theyre lying down, the back of the hair isnt styled. When I get to heaven, I hope all these people arent going to be mad at me because I couldnt do the back of the head, she said in jest. Jones said elderly women were her specialty and the easiest to do, usually wanting a side bang curled toward the face and only light makeup. Ill never forget one of the first little ladies that I did, she said. She had a box that she wanted buried with her containing letters from her son in Vietnam, and that touched my heart. I just cried. Linda Gail Bubbles Stewart has known Jones for years and admired the work she did on her mother, two sisters and a nephew. Both of Stewarts sisters died of cancer, and with artful application of makeup, Jones lessened the visual impact of the disease. She truly cares about people, and shes very talented, Stewart said. Shes got a good sense of humor about everything that makes it comfortable. It helps ease the pain when families see their loved ones looking so wonderful, especially when they have suffered a long illness. Even men and children need a little makeup and lip color, she said. Though Jones never had a deceased person that she couldnt work on, children were the most poignant. Children got to my heart, she said. It was just heartbreaking because you dont bury your children. The reward came when family members saw their loved ones looking as good as they did in life, some even younger. Each one was special, she said, from friends she went to school with to Jacksonville pioneers to former Mayor Jake Godbolds wife, Jean, whose hair she styled in life and death. Dennis Johnston, a funeral director at Corey-Kerlin, said it takes a special type of person to do what Jones does. And she had the talent, vibrant personality and energetic, upbeat attitude to do the work. Even if she didnt have instructions from the family, she could walk into the prep room, look at the body a few seconds and know what she was going to do, he said. And she was so good that it didnt take her a lot of time. Probably the most important thing is she was always following up behind herself, said Johnston, who worked with Jones for 20 years. After the family had the opportunity to see their loved one, she would call me to see how they felt and if she needed to come in and make any adjustments. He recalled how impressed he was when Jones worked on his wifes sister, who died of leukemia in 2006 and had a lost a lot of hair to chemotherapy. Family members discussed getting a hairpiece or wig. Jones, a lifelong friend of his sister-inlaws, asked to try her hand first. She took a little bit of hair and made it look like she had a wonderful hairdo, he said. At the service, everyone said, Look at her hair, and Connie took pride in that. Johnston also was struck by the number of deceased Jones knew or was acquainted with a family member or a friend who knew them. Jones even met her present husband through her funeral home connections. When hired by Hardage-Giddens, she became friends with the Giddens sister who worked on the business side and her husband. When she died, Jones eventually fell in love with her widower, Frank Jones, a man she describes as her soulmate. They married in 2008. Its been a good career and a conversation starter, with people expressing surprise at her occupation, said Jones, whose blonde hair is softly coiffured and makeup tastefully applied. When she wanted a vacation or weekend off, a friend, Pam Belger, stepped in for her. Now that shes retired, Belger has replaced her. Jones said she will reciprocate when Belger wants time off and will still take requests from friends to do their loved ones. Johnston said Jones always made them happy. The only time she didnt make us happy, he said, was when she retired. A8SUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE STATE THERES RETIREMENT. AND THEN THERES Providence Independence.

Floridians should not be fooled by Rick Scotts shameful, taxpayerfunded campaign events this week, spokesman Brendan Gilfillan said in a statement. Scotts backto-school tour should be an apology tour for the $4.8 billion he wanted to cut and the $1.3billion he did cut from education.WERE NOT GONNA TAKE ITThats all I can stands; I cant stands no more, the cartoon character Popeye used to say and a coalition of groups including the states largest teachers union essentially said the same thing this week in launching a legal assault on Floridas de facto school-voucher program. The lawsuit comes after the Legislature approved a bill this spring that would expand eligibility for the program and increase the value of scholarships given to participating students. While one of the central claims of the lawsuit that the program gets in the way of the states responsibility to provide a quality education to all children could have been made for years now, those filing the challenge said the expansion forced their hand. Ron Meyer, an attorney for the groups, said while education advocates were willing to allow the program to go forward initially, this has become an industry. Its a money-maker for scholarship-funding organizations, Meyer said. And its a program that we think is a dereliction of the constitutional requirement (to provide public education). The Tax Credit Scholarship Program, which could raise as much as $357.8million this year, provides tax credits to companies that donate money to nonprofit entities that pay for children to go to private schools. Without the scholarship program, critics say, those tax dollars could be used to help fund public education. But supporters say the program provides better opportunities for lowor middle-income children trapped in failing public schools. Republicans, who led the charge to institute and then broaden the voucher program, saw things a bit differently. Those attacking the scholarships were actually the special interests. This lawsuit is just the latest attack on parental choice by an entrenched education establishment more concerned about protecting the status quo than providing families the opportunities afforded by a great education, said former Gov. Jeb Bush, who signed the legislation creating the program and is still an influential figure in the states education debates. STORY OF THE WEEK: Primary elections cleared the way for general elections, including the long-awaited battle between Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Charlie Crist for control of the governors mansion. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Were not the Rick Scott campaign. We cant go whenever and whatever we want on TV. We have to make choices. So why would we make the choice to go spend a bunch of money in a primary that we know were going to win?

toward the drivers side. As he reaches in, shots ring out 11 in a matter of 8 seconds. Songer fires his single-action, 22-caliber magnum Ruger five times into Smith; two bullets hit him in the chest, another in his neck, a fourth in the arm and the other in his leg. My God, theyre shooting him, Starling says. No pulse. No heartbeat.Trooper Ronald Smith, 28, has a big day ahead of him. Its Sunday, Dec.23, and hes planning to drive to Tallahassee in a few hours once his shift ends to meet with his wife and his nearly 2-year-old daughter Alicia. They have just bought a place in Crystal River and, with any luck, will be in their new home by Christmas. Smith has been with the Florida Highway Patrol for eight months, but is no rookie to law enforcement. He previously served with the Tallahassee Police Department, where his father was a captain. Smith spots a blue Chevy off the side of the road and investigates. With hand on pistol, he speaks with Jones and returns to check on the man asleep in the back seat. Songer, who is not sleeping, ambushes him. Mortally wounded, Smith somehow fires off six shots of his own. Three hit the car, but the others scatter wildly as he staggers 15 to 20feet back and collapses to the ground. Songer sees the deer hunters, who have witnessed the murder, and fires once before he and Jones attempt to speed off in the Impala. Morris returns fire, shooting out the rear tires and gas tank. Songer and Jones flee the vehicle. Jones takes off toward a wooded area, but Morris shoots him. The bullet goes completely through his left foot and nearly blows off his right foot. Morris draws down on Songer and begins counting to 10. Songer gives up at the count of eight, throws out his gun and crawls on his hands and knees over to Jones, who is screaming for God to help him. The hunters turn their attention to Trooper Smith, but its too late. There was no pulse. No heartbeat. Nothing, Morris would later say.Indefinite stay of executionIts Tuesday, Feb.5, 1985, and Carl Songer sits in his cell on death row in Floridas state prison in Starke. In 24 hours, he has a scheduled date with the electric chair. In Atlanta, his defense team is feverishly working every angle to have his execution stayed. Songer has faced death in the electric chair twice before, and both times his execution was stayed and then later reaffirmed. A week earlier, Ronald Smiths now-13-year-old daughter Alicia watches as a final appeal of execution is denied in an Inverness courtroom. Alicia leaves court thinking that after 11 years of courtroom wrangling, her fathers killer will finally receive his ultimate punishment. Since her fathers killing, tragedy has revisited the Smith family twice in the year following his death, Smiths father committed suicide, and several years later his mother died of a heart attack. With the future governor of Massachusetts, Deval Patrick, representing him, Songer again wins his third stay of execution and this time its an indefinite one.Horrible nightmareThe Florida Supreme Court reviews an appeal by Songers attorneys asserting their clients sentence is disproportionate to others imposed because the mitigating circumstances far outweigh the aggravating circumstances surrounding the crime. The sole aggravating circumstance the justices consider is Songer walking away from a work detail while incarcerated in Oklahoma. The mitigating circumstances are: Songer committed the crime while under extreme emotional and mental disturbance; he was impaired and could not comprehend his actions; and he was only 23 at the time of the murder. Songers attorneys also argue their client is sincerely remorseful, he has engaged in selfimprovement while in prison, he had an emotionally impoverished upbringing and he has developed spiritual and religious standards while in jail. Its been 15 years since a Citrus County court found Songer guilty of murder and originally sentenced him to die in the electric chair, but on May25, 1989, the justices unanimously agree with Songers appeal and set aside the death sentence. They order the court to impose a life sentence. Songer will be eligible for parole in 1999. Six weeks later in a Sumter County courtroom, an attorney for Alicia Smith reads her letter to the court admonishing the Florida legal system. Throughout my life, I have only been able to recognize my natural father through pictures and talks with my mother, she writes. The only hope we had for an end to this horrible nightmare was seeing Songer executed. But now it will remain a haunting memory that will help go down in the history of the law to help others get off of death row.Not forgottenAlicia (Smith) Hayes, now 39, with sons Rhett, 10, and Cole, 16, by her side, fights back tears as she cuts the ribbon officially marking the renaming of the U.S.19 barge canal bridge, near where her father was killed. The Trooper Ronald Smith Memorial Bridge serves as a lasting memory of the tragedy that occurred nearly 361/2 years earlier. Months earlier, in October 2010, the local National Association of Retired Law Enforcement Officers erects a monument in Smiths honor at the intersection of U.S.19 and Basswood Drive in Crystal River, the location where the fatal shooting took place. Its an honor, Hayes says during the bridge dedication. Its nice to know people dont forget. There has been so much negative. This is a positive.A case with tentacles Songers legal case spans 40-plus years, led to the changing of wording in the Florida Constitution and makes an appearance in Anton Scalias opinion in the Supreme Court case Hitchcock v. Dugger. Deval Patricks opponent in the 2006 Massachusetts gubernatorial race, Kerry Healey, used Patricks involvement in the case as negative campaign material. Songer himself made history as the first person in Florida to receive three stays of execution. Even the dedication of the Trooper Ronald Smith Memorial Bridge hit a roadblock when former State Rep. Ron Schultz, R-Homosassa, failed to sponsor a house bill to rename the bridge in 2009. Schultz, citing a communication error, sponsored a companion bill to State Sen. Charlie Deans bill in 2010. The bridge was dedicated July 19, 2011. On Jan. 7 of this year, the Florida Department of Corrections denied Songer parole for a third time.Mike Arnold is the editor of the Citrus County Chronicle.

The trial judge denied the motion, but the Supreme Court of Florida stayed his execution two days later. It was the first of three stays of execution Songer would receive.

Associated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio Millions of students will sit down at computers this year to take new tests rooted in the Common Core standards for math and reading, but policymakers in many states are having buyers remorse. The fight to repeal the standards has heated up in Ohio, with state Rep. Andy Thompson, a Republican, saying its kind of creepy the way this whole thing landed in Ohio with all the things prepackaged. Its playing out in Louisiana, where GOP Gov. Bobby Jindal is in a nasty feud involving his former ally, Education Superintendent John White. Jindal has sued the Obama administration, accusing Washington of illegally manipulating federal grant money and regulations to force states to adopt the Common Core education standards. The standards were scrapped this year in Indiana and Oklahoma. Governors in North Carolina, South Carolina and Missouri have signed legislation to reconsider the standards, even though they still will be used in those three states this fall. Like many critics, Thompson and Jindal base their opposition on federal support of the standards. But states led the Common Core movement that really took off in 2009, and that effort was voluntary. The administration offered incentives to states to adopt college and career-ready standards, and Common Core fit the bill. The incentives included cash grants and permission to ignore parts of the much-maligned No Child Left Behind law. The standards emphasize critical thinking and spell out what reading and math skills students should grasp at each grade level, while leaving how those skills are mastered up to districts and states. The hope was that higher standards shared across state lines would allow for shared resources, comparable student performance measures and smoother school-to-school transitions for children who move, such as military kids. Nearly every state adopted the standards.DEBATE SPREADSThe debate over Common Core has spilled into the national political realm. Among potential GOP presidential candidates in 2016, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush supports the standards; Jindal, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul do not. Teachers unions, historically aligned with the Democrats, endorsed the standards and helped develop them. But they now complain about botched efforts to put them in place and say its unfair to use Common Core-based assessments in new teacher evaluation systems rolling out in much of the United States. The issue has gotten pulled into a general anti-testing backlash in parts of the country. To ease the testing concerns, Education Secretary Arne Duncan recently said he would allow states to delay using students test scores in teacher evaluation systems. What really has happened is that this has become a politicized issue and its become an ideological symbol, interestingly, on both sides, said Patrick McGuinn, a political science professor at Drew University. He said the standards and the assessments designed under them are generally considered acceptable or of high quality.CLASSROOMS PREPAREFar from the political discourse, American classrooms continue to be transformed by the use of the standards, with new curricula developed and teachers trained. Some parents are perplexed by the new ways their children are completing their lessons. Supporters like former Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue, a Republican who helped lead the governors group that identified the goals set by Common Core, say politics and mistruths have hijacked a needed and effective education overhaul. The standards were a response from governors in a defensive mode to keep the federal government out of education, Perdue said, and he supported the changes out of concern for U.S. students global competitiveness. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is among backers. Its just a situation that I dont think should have become political, which has become politically toxic and I dont really know how to decontaminate that, Perdue said.SHIFTING PUBLIC OPINIONA PDK/Gallup Poll released Aug. 20 found a dramatic change in the number of people aware of the standards. Last year, twothirds of those surveyed said theyd never heard of the standards. This year, 81percent said they had and 6 in 10 said they oppose them. Daniel A. Domenech, executive director of the national organization representing school superintendents, said polling provides more evidence its important to slow down to get it right. This school year marks a milestone. This coming spring, roughly 11million students in more than half the states are expected to take new computerbased assessments aligned with Common Core standards that were developed by two groups of states to replace the standardized tests that had been used. States can choose the assessment to be used, but those decisions have not been without controversy. Some states, including Georgia and Michigan, that originally joined the consortiums, have dropped out and opted for different tests.AWAITING RESULTSThe rollout of Common Corebased tests will be watched closely for computer glitches and other problems, as well as to see how well students perform. The ambition of Common Core is quite broad, said Jonathan Supovitz, co-director at the Consortium for Policy Research in Education at the University of Pennsylvania. He said the standards have the potential to bring new tools and technologies into classrooms and lead to greater student mastery of subjects, but it will take time. This is not going to happen overnight. Its going to take lots of resources and lots of teacher exposure to new ways of doing things and were just at the beginning of that process, Supovitz said. Many state lawmakers arent willing to wait.STATE PUSHBACKJindal initially supported Common Core. He said thats because the standards were first presented as a bottoms-up approach, but the reality is what it has become is another tool for the federal government to try to dictate curriculum. He suspended contracts that the state Department of Education planned to use to buy testing material aligned with the standards. White and education board leaders say the governor overstepped his legal authority, and they sued. A state district judge has since said the governors actions were harmful to parents, teachers and students and he lifted Jindals suspension of the contracts. The decision allows White to move ahead with Common Core-tied testing plans until a full trial is held later over the legality of Jindals executive orders against the standards. At the same time, 17 state lawmakers who oppose the standards have lodged their own legal challenge, but lost their first round in court. Education Secretary Arne Duncan has criticized the Jindals opposition to Common Core as politically driven. In a June interview with CBS This Morning, the secretary said of Jindals switched position: Its about politics, its not about education. In Ohio, some teachers have raised concerns about how the standards came out, Ohio Federation of Teachers president Melissa Cropper said, but most largely support them. Some of the states largest urban districts, such as Cleveland and Columbus, have spent two years and lots of money preparing for the rollout that started this school year, she said. Cropper urged state lawmakers to stay the course with the standards, which were adopted in 2010. All that time, energy and resources would be wasted, Cropper said. I think it will absolutely throw our districts in chaos. State Rep. Thompson, whose wife is a Spanish teacher, isnt convinced. He says Ohio and other states adopted the standards in the wake of the economic downturn because they were in desperate need of money. When you take federal leverage, it affected peoples behavior, Thompson said.OTHER VOICESParents and educators opposed to the standards in Ohio were allotted three full days of hearings in mid-August to discuss the merits of replacing Common Core. Defenders of the standards were relegated to holding news conferences. Lincoln Bramlage, a father of three from Ottawa-Glandorf in northwest Ohio, said the standards are hardly relevant. He added: We need to fight for the teachers and the kids. This is not education. Its indoctrination. Carrie Moenster, a parent and teacher, said shes seen her fourth-grade students in tears because they couldnt understand math standards that she called abstract and developmentally inappropriate. One child who was once very confident comes up to our desks repeatedly while working on an independent assignment because he doesnt trust his own mind and judgment anymore, she said.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014 A13 We are here to help, specializing in memory care.

COMMON CORE IN FLORIDA Florida officials tweaked the standards among a growing backlash. Beginning the fall, the Florida standards will be used in state classrooms. While some have asked GOP Gov. Rick Scott and legislators to jettison the standards, high-ranking Republicans have tried to tamp down the controversy in other ways. For example, legislators passed a measure that repealed more than 30 mentions of Common Core that were placed into state law just a year ago. Scott initially backed Common Core standards, but after complaints from grassroots conservative groups and activists, he called for public hearings and set the groundwork for the state to pull out of a consortium developing a national test to see if school children are meeting the new standards.ON THE NET Common Core: www. corestandards.org

Associated PressMIAMI When El Corral Burgers opened its first U.S. restaurant near Miami last year, Colombian-Americans came in droves to get a taste of home. They had missed the chains 20 different recipes of freshly made burgers, which back in the South American country are frequently recommended by proud locals to foreign visitors. An average of 620 Colombians and others showed up each day during the first six weeks. We had lines longer than Disneyland. Some came from Tampa and Orlando, says Juan Mario Patino, a vice president of 4JS Management, the companys U.S. franchisee. El Corral is among a growing number of South American restaurant chains that are using South Florida as the gateway to the U.S. market. Juan Valdez, a Colombian company named after the fictional coffee farmer used in the countrys ads, plans to open 60 franchised cafes in South Florida in the next five years in a fresh attempt to challenge Starbucks on its home turf. Giraffas, the Brazilian secondlargest fast-food chain, opened its first U.S. restaurant in North Miami three years ago and has launched 10 more since. With Americas fast-food and fast-casual restaurants generating a combined $231 billion annually in sales, these companies and others are hoping to get a small but growing bite. They bring to the table flavors of a different variety. Americans are always interested in something new and different, says Warren Solochek, a restaurant analyst at market research firm NPD Group. If you have a new sort of restaurant that is coming into an area, people are always going to be interested in trying it out to see if fits their needs. In the last five years, cities like Miami, Boston and New York have seen an influx of European and Latin American brands looking to test the U.S. marketplace, according to Darren Tristano, executive vice president of Technomic, a food industry researcher. Given that its population is two-thirds Hispanic, MiamiDade County is preferred by South American companies because they are familiar to many residents. The companies rely on the role of their fellow countrymen as U.S. ambassadors of their brands. I tell all my friends they should come here, says Colombian-born Andres Lopez, 24, at the El Corral restaurant in Brickell, the financial district of Miami. The quality of their meat is the best. But the companies say they are aware that to grow they need to appeal to a broader clientele, not just expatriates. We dont want to be the brand of Hispanics, says Alejandra Londono, the vice president of international business at Juan Valdez. The company is targeting coffee lovers and is looking to differentiate itself with varied offerings that include beans from different regions of Colombia and artisanal methods of preparation. We want the experience of drinking coffee to be authentic, Londono said. El Corral and Giraffas are aiming to position themselves in the fast-casual sector, which promises higher quality of food for an affordable price. In 2014, this sector, which includes companies like Panera and Chipotle, is expected to grow 10 percent. Giraffas, whose menu features steaks and burgers with a Brazilian twist, was listed among the top 25 movers and shakers in 2013 and 2014 by the website Fastcasual.com. By 2020, Giraffas wants to have between 100 and 150 U.S. stores. To make a difference in the U.S. you have to have hundreds of locations, says Joao Barbosa, the CEO of Giraffas USA. The real litmus test for these companies is the expansion beyond cities with a large Hispanic population, says Joseph Ganitsky, the director of the University of Miamis Center for International Business Education and Research. They are national champions but if they do not have an aggressive strategy and connect with the national trend, they will not get very far, says Ganitsky. An example for these companies might be the rapidly growing Spanish chain 100 Montaditos, which entered the U.S. in 2011 through Miami and already has brought 17 of its tavern-style restaurants to four other states: New York, Maryland, Virginia and Iowa. Its CEO in the U.S., Francisco Javier Cernuda, said the brand has had a good reception in the non-Hispanic majority areas where it has already opened stores, such as Manhattan; Davenport, Iowa or West Palm Beach, Florida. Our restaurant is so unique that people accept it very well, said Cernuda. Guatemalan fried chicken chain Pollo Campero also targeted its countrymen when it entered the U.S. through California in 2002. It has since expanded to 55 locations across the country. But regardless of whether the companies will expand beyond Florida, they also see their presence here as a showcase to the rest of the world. Barbosa says that since Giraffas started operations in South Florida, the company has received dozens of requests from companies all over the world showing interest in licensing the brand. With our 11 locations here, we make much more noise in the world than with the 400 we have in Brazil, Barbosa said. If you reach success in the U.S. the chances to go global are easier. Then you have to wait for the doctor here to get the results and give you an appointment, he said, adding that it would be much more efficient if the local clinic had its own X-ray machine or even was able to outsource simple diagnostic procedures to local medical facilities and get results the same day. The most important insight I get is from the people on the ground, Nugent told the ChronicleFriday. If you want to know how the VA is performing, ask a veteran; dont ask the PR department at VA headquarters. So when I hear that specific needs arent being met, thats something specific that I can take back to Washington and push for. He said that the VA has considerable funding appropriated each year. It just changes who gets to decide where specific dollars go, he said. So if local needs arent being met, then we push the VA to allocate their resources in such a way that the needs are being met. Nugent stressed the importance of hearing directly from veterans, so he can reach out and put pressure directly on the VA. Their budget comes from Congress and they need to be allocating those resources the right way, he said. Contact U.S. Rep.

Associated PressNAPA, Calif. Napa Valleys seismically reinforced winery buildings generally held up to the largest earthquake to hit Northern California in a quarter-century, but the precious wine piled inside often did not. In winery after winery, oak wine barrels stacked high and weighing more than a quarter-ton each came cascading down, renewing worries about a lightly regulated threat to safety in fault-riddled wine country. Vintner Richard Ward, in his south Napa Valley winery in the hours after the Aug.24 magnitude-6.0 quake to help workers restack barrels, was one of many to say the time of the quake 3:20a.m. limited casualties. Authorities say falling debris seriously injured three people, none apparently at wineries that were then mostly unstaffed. Had the quake happened one day later, Ward said, gesturing as workers used forklifts to right toppled empty barrels at his Saintsbury vineyard, this place would have been full of people working on this years harvest. Napa Valleys roughly 500wineries still are compiling financial estimates for the quakes impact, spokeswoman Cate Conniff of the Napa Valley Vintners trade group said. The most commonly reported damage was the fallen stacks of wine barrels. The barrels each hold the equivalent of 25cases of wine. At some wineries and wine-storage centers after the quake, spilled wine from broken barrels pooled over workers feet and ran under doors to puddle on streets and sidewalks. Wine barrel storage sites, which can hold thousands of barrels belonging to many owners, said they too were still assessing the loss, but numerous full wine barrels had spilled to the ground in some. Beyond general worker safety rules, state officials say there are no specific regulations addressing wine barrel stacks, which a 2004 report by the Oakland-based Earthquake Engineer Research Institute said pose significant threats to life and property. In a few wineries with tasting rooms among the barrel stacks, tourists could have been in harms way, as well. Materials in workplaces are supposed to be secured, but there are no specific state laws or regulations covering wine barrel stacks, said Peter Melton, a spokesman for the California state division of occupational safety and health. OSHA inspectors tended to see such stack collapses as inevitable in a large temblor, Melton said, and no wineries have been cited in the latest quake. I dont think they (barrel racks) were designed for an earthquake, he said. Beyond the economic losses of wine, the bigger issue is the risk to life safety is profound if it happens during the day, said Joshua Marrow, an earthquake safety specialist who has written on easing the dangers of the stacks for more than a decade. Wineries typically use two-barrel racks to hold barrels, stacking them up to five or six high, well overhead. After a 2006 fire heavily damaged Napa Valley Silver Oak family winery, CEO David Duncan said he heeded seismic studies written by Marrow and rebuilt winery buildings to incorporate a seemingly simple change switching to steadier four-barrel racks, even though that required buying bigger forklifts to move them. At Silver Oak during the latest quake, the towers of wine barrels stood, although three barrels in partially full racks fell. Every single photograph Ive seen of collapsed barrel stacks elsewhere in wine country were all on two-barrel racks, Duncan said. For Silver Oak, each full barrel that stayed put and didnt break represented upward of $32,500 in wine saved. For wine-industry colleagues who hesitate at the expense of retooling for different racks, I tell them its not as big an investment as having your barrels fall and crack open, Duncan said. The danger of wobbly barrel stacks in earthquake areas has come up before, said Marrow, including after a 6.5magnitude quake on Californias Central Coast in 2003 and after a 5.2magnitude quake in Napa County in 2000. Some Central Coast vintners began using shorter barrel stacks as a result of the 2003 quake, said Chris Taranto, spokesman for a vintners association there. The recession dissuaded many vintners from spending to switch to steadier stacks, however, Marrow said. Beyond recommending four-barrel racks, Marrow and other winery seismic safety experts have pointed to ways to better hold barrels in place, such as gates added to the front of them. Wineries also can build sturdy steel cages in rooms where barrels are stacked, so workers have someplace to run for protection if a quake starts, he said. Shorter stacks of barrels are safer than ones that reach toward the ceiling, he added. Vintners probably would be looking at lessons learned from the Napa quake after cleaning up damage and harvesting this years grape crop, said Michael Kaiser of the WineAmerica national trade group. The issue isnt going to go away, Marrow said, given that the majority of Californias vineyards lie in active seismic areas. Rolling vineyards generally were created by earthquake faults, he said.

EU leaders pick Italian as blocs new top diplomatBRUSSELS European Union leaders on Saturday picked Italian Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini to become the 28-nation blocs top diplomat for the next five years. The decision comes as the crisis at the EUs eastern border pitting Ukraine against Russia poses one of the biggest foreign policy challenges for the bloc in decades. Federica Mogherini will be the new face of the European Union in our day-today dealings with our partners in the world, outgoing EU summit chairman Herman Van Rompuy said. Incumbent EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, whose term ends in October, has been a frequent interlocutor for U.S. secretaries of state and chairs the negotiations on Irans nuclear program. Mogherini, a 41-year-old center-left politician, has been Italys foreign minister only since February, drawing criticism that she lacks experience. A first attempt to secure Mogherinis nomination in June failed amid resistance from eastern European leaders. The highly visible job as EU foreign policy chief entails flying across the world and hobnobbing with the great and powerful to deal with anything from the fighting in eastern Ukraine to the crises in the Middle East. However, the EUs top diplomat often has had little leeway because the blocs member nations jealously guarded foreign policy as a national matter, leaving the foreign policy chief the role to hammer out compromise positions.Missing British boy with tumor found in SpainLONDON A critically ill 5-year-old boy who was taken out of a British hospital against doctors advice has been found in Spain, police said Saturday. An international search began Thursday for Ashya King, who has a severe brain tumor, after his parents removed him from a hospital in the southern English city of Southampton for unknown reasons. British police said earlier that a European arrest warrant was issued for the boys parents, Brett and Naghemeh, both Jehovahs Witnesses. The family had last been seen traveling on a ferry to France. Police said late Saturday that officers are questioning the couple, and are waiting to hear on Ashyas condition. They did not specify where in Spain the family was found.8 foreigners among 10 killed in Bolivia bus crashLA PAZ, Bolivia Bolivian police say eight foreign tourists are among the 10 people killed when a bus returning to La Paz from the Salar de Uyuni salt flats ran off the highway and crashed. Police Capt. Gonzalo Carrasco said another 24people, most of them foreigners, were injured and being treated in hospitals in Oruro, the closest big city. Carrasco said the accident occurred Saturday about 180miles south of the capital. He said the foreigners included an Australian, two Swiss, two Italians and a Peruvian and that two of the foreigners could not immediately be identified. The Bolivian fatalities included the bus driver. Carrasco said the injured included Germans, Italians, Swiss, Canadians, Chileans, Peruvians and an Indian. He said the cause of the accident was under investigation.Tunisia recovers bodies of Syrian boat migrantsTUNIS, Tunisia Tunisian authorities say the countrys coast guard has recovered at least 41 bodies of migrants, mostly Syrians, who drowned trying to sail to Europe. Mustapha Abdel Kebir, mayor of Ben Guerdane, a border town with Libya, said identity papers recovered from the bodies Saturday indicate that most were Syrian and the dead include women and children. Abdel Kebir said the boat most likely sailed from Libya and the currents washed the bodies up on Tunisian shores. He added that fishermen reported seeing many more bodies in the sea in the past days. With the breakdown in security in neighboring Libya, it has become a major jumping off point for boats carrying Syrian and sub-Saharan African refugees seeking a better life in Europe.Pakistan protesters march on PMs residenceISLAMABAD Pakistani police charged with batons and fired tear gas and rubber bullets at thousands of protesters marching toward the prime ministers official residence and the adjacent parliament building in Islamabad on Saturday, blanketing the route with clouds of white smoke and scattering demonstrators. Nearly 125 people were injured in the clashes between police and demonstrators demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Scores of protesters, mainly women carrying hammers and iron rods, broke down a fence outside the parliament building, enabling hundreds of people to enter the lawns and parking area, according to an Associated Press photographer at the scene and Pakistani television reports. Islamabad police chief Khalid Khattak said the protesters were armed with big hammers, wire cutters and axes, and even had a crane. Defense Minister Khwaja Mohammad Asif said police later managed to clear most of the protesters from the parliament buildings parking area and lawns. Now only women and children are there, and they can take shelter there as long as they want.Rebuilding Gaza will take 20 years, group saysJERUSALEM An international organization involved in assessing post-conflict reconstruction says it will take 20 years under current levels of restrictions to rebuild the Gaza Strips battered and neglected housing stock following the war between Hamas and Israel. Most of the new building would be to make up for the current housing deficit, rather than to address damage from fighting between Israel and Palestinian militants. Meanwhile, appearing in a round of postwar interviews on Israeli TV channels, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel was not ready to return to the negotiating table with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas unless he distances himself from Hamas militants. Hamas and Abbas Palestinian Authority have a unity government in Gaza. Netanyahu has regularly condemned the formal Abbas-Hamas relationship. The housing assessment by Shelter Cluster, chaired by the Norwegian Refugee Council with the participation of the U.N. refugee agency and the Red Cross, underscores the complexities involved in an overall reconstruction program for the Gaza Strip, which some Palestinian officials have estimated could cost in excess of $6 billion. It is based on the current level of goods permitted to be moved from Israel to Gaza a level that could easily be expanded, which would shorten the time needed to address the territorys housing needs. Any effort to rebuild Gaza will be hindered by a blockade imposed by Egypt and Israel since the Islamic militant group Hamas seized power in 2007. Israel has severely restricted the import of concrete and other building materials into Gaza, fearing that militants will use them to build rockets and reinforce cross-border attack tunnels.A16SUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWORLD 000J6UU 158-0831 SUCRN Ebola takes big toll on already poor health care Associated PressFREETOWN, Sierra Leone When the dreaded Ebola virus began infecting people in the Sierra Leone town of Kenema, Dr. Sheik Humarr Khan and his team were on the front lines. After stepping out of his protective suit following hours on a sweltering ward, he would jump on the phone to coordinate with the Ministry of Health, to deal with personnel issues and tend to hospital business. He was jovial but forceful. When he walked into a room everyone looked to him for direction and he gave it decisively, said Daniel Bausch, an American doctor who worked with Khan. But then Khan tested positive for Ebola at the end of July and died soon after. He is one of at least two leading doctors in Sierra Leone who have died in the outbreak, which has also hit Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Senegal. The World Health Organization says it has sickened a higher proportion of medical staff than any other on record, with 240 contracting Ebola and more than half of them dying. The toll on health workers was felt immediately by grieving and frightened colleagues and by patients who had fewer people to attend to them, and it will likely set back health care systems poorly equipped amid rampant poverty to begin with for years to come. These are people who were the backbone of efforts to improve struggling health systems, said Bausch, a professor of tropical medicine at Tulane University. Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are trying to dig themselves out of years of stalled or retrograde development and making some progress. This is setting them back immeasurably. Khan had been an expert in Lassa, which like Ebola is a hemorrhagic fever, meaning he brought tremendous expertise to the current outbreak. He was also key to improving Sierra Leones health system in general. The regions weak health system infrastructure, along with poverty, helped fuel Ebolas spread. Modupeh Cole, a top physician at Connaught Hospital in Sierra Leones capital, Freetown, also died of Ebola. He was one of only three senior doctors who supervised junior doctors at the hospital, said Dr. Oliver Johnson, a British doctor who has worked there for two years as part of the Kings Partnership Sierra Leone. Coles death will hobble the hospital and might render it unable to offer postgraduate specialist training, Johnson said. The loss of senior doctors makes a huge impact because there are so few of them. Liberia has only one doctor for every 100,000 people, while Sierra Leone has two, according to World Health Organization statistics. In comparison, the U.S. has 245doctors for every 100,000 people. Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are some of the worlds poorest countries and have histories of coups or civil war. Many of their brightest citizens, including medical professionals, had abandoned their countries and governments struggled to provide even the most basic services. Even before the outbreak, it was common for family members of patients in a Sierra Leonean hospital to be asked to supply basic equipment themselves, popping out to a pharmacy to buy gloves for the doctors, syringes and over-thecounter pain-killers. In Liberia, the governmentrun hospital in most counties is lucky to have one surgeon, on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, according to Dr. Frank Glover, an American medical missionary who has worked extensively in Liberia and who founded SHIELD in Africa, which is dedicated to improving health care. Most county hospitals do not have ambulances, Xray machines or a lab to do blood work, he said. Since the outbreak, many hospitals and clinics in Freetown and Liberias capital of Monrovia that are not involved in Ebola care have closed, as staff and patients fled out of fear they would get the virus. Liberia and Sierra Leone have seen health workers walk off the job to demand hazard pay and safer working conditions. That means malaria, typhoid and cholera cases are going untreated a situation Doctors Without Borders called an emergency within the emergency. Bausch recently found himself on an Ebola ward in Sierra Leone with only one other doctor and 55 patients because the nurses were all on strike. When we went in that day, it was a very emotional experience to try to meet the needs of so many people, he said. Theres people saying, you know, Doctor, Im hungry, I dont have food, or, Im thirsty, I dont have water. Bausch believes he was working with Khan around the time that the Sierra Leonean doctor became infected and for Bausch there was no aha moment. The mistake can be so small, no one sees or remembers it. Bausch said the single most important thing the outbreak needs is more people and not necessarily experts but people to clean wards and do laundry and help medical staff ensure theyre using their protective gear properly. Thats the best way to ensure patients are being taken care of and that health workers arent becoming so exhausted that theyre making the kinds of mistakes that can lead to infection.

Favela debutante ball in Brazil Associated PressA teenage girl from the Santa Marta favela slum puts on a pair of high heels Friday for a group debutante ball organized by the Pacifying Police Unit from her neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Associated PressNEW YORK Janice Moreno graduated from college with a degree in English literature, but never landed a job paying more than $12 an hour. Now, at 36, shes back in the classroom in safety glasses and a T-shirt learning how to be a carpenter. I believe its going to pay off, she said amid instruction in sawing techniques. If Morenos six-week training program in New York City leads to a full-time job, shell have bucked long odds. On this Labor Day weekend, ponder the latest federal data: About 7.1 million Americans were employed in construction-related occupations last year, and only 2.6 percent were women. That percentage has scarcely budged since the 1970s, while women have made gains since then in many other fields. Why the low numbers, in an industry abounding with highpaying jobs that dont require college degrees? Reasons include a dearth of recruitment efforts aimed at women and hard-toquash stereotypes that construction work doesnt suit them. Another factor, according to a recent report by the National Womens Law Center, is pervasive sexual harassment of women at work sites. Its not surprising that the construction trades are sometimes called the industry that time forgot, said Fatima Goss Graves, the centers vice president for education and employment. Its time for this industry to enter the modern era to expand apprenticeships and training opportunities for women, hire qualified female workers and enforce a zero-tolerance policy against sexual harassment. Efforts to accomplish those goals are more advanced in New York than in many parts of the country, with pledges by unions, employers and city officials to boost womens share of construction jobs. One key player is Nontraditional Employment for Women, or NEW, a nonprofit which offers training programs such as the one taken by Moreno. The organization has arrangements with several unions to take women directly into their multiyear apprenticeships at a starting wage of around $17, plus benefits once they complete the program. After four or five years, they can attain journeyman status, with hourly pay of $40 or more. Kathleen Culhane, NEWs interim president, said more than 1,000 graduates have obtained apprenticeships since 2005, and 12 to 15 percent of the apprentices with some leading unions are women. NEW covers all costs for its students, who must be able to carry 50-pound loads. Beyond learning job skills, the students do role-playing to get ready for future challenges. Among the topics, Moreno said, is how to distinguish between flagrant sexual harassment that should be reported, as opposed to less egregious behavior. They want us to be prepared for the possibility we wont be liked, or well be the only woman on the job, Moreno said. If young women considering a construction career are in search of a role model, Holley Thomas might fit the bill. She took up welding at a community college in Alabama, landed a job in 2009 with construction giant KBR Inc., and in 2010 became the first woman to take first place in welding at the Associated Builders and Contractors National Craft Championships, a competition launched in 1987. Thomas, 29, is now supervising a 10-worker crew at a KBR project in Florida. She speaks occasionally to high school girls, who are impressed by her paycheck that averages more than $2,000 a week. The biggest issue is getting through to the parents of the kids, the counselors at the schools and making clear that construction is a viable career, Thomas said. Mary Battle also has succeeded with a construction career, although she says it required unwavering toughmindedness. Now 50, Battle has been working in cement masonry for 30 years and in 2012 became the first woman elected business manager of Plasterers and Cement Masons Local 891 in Washington, D.C. Under her leadership, the number of women in the local has risen from five to 12, but she says sexist attitudes persist in the industry. Men dont perceive of women as someone coming to work, they perceive of women as a sex object, Battle said. For younger women considering a construction career, Battle tells them: No matter how much negativity you get, keep on the job and dont quit. A mother of six, Battle credits a devoted baby sitter with helping her handle long work hours. Many construction jobs start in early morning, complicating child-care arrangements for some single mothers. Another challenge for women is to get their fair share of working hours, according to Elly Spicer, a former carpenter who is now director of training at a technical college affiliated with New York City carpenters unions. Youll find, unquestionably, that women get access to less hours than men, said Spicer. You cant do this working six months of the year. The management side of the industry insists it would welcome more women. Most of our members are desperate to hire people, said Brian Turmail, public affairs director for the Associated General Contractors of America. Theyre looking for any candidate whos qualified to come and join the team women, minorities, veterans. Turmail suggested that most women arent tempted by construction careers, while those who are interested might be hampered by cutbacks in schoolbased vocational programs. The Labor Department plans to award $100 million in grants this year for apprenticeship programs that expand opportunities for women and minorities. The reality is that the face of apprenticeship in the construction industry has been white male, Labor Secretary Thomas Perez said in an interview. Were working to ensure the future reflects the face of America. A crucial step, Perez said, is to highlight the successes of women who have thrived in construction. Women are good at this, he said. Theyve punched a ticket to the middle class and speak with great pride of the barriers theyve overcome. Regarding sexual harassment, the Labor Departments Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs has pledged to crack down on contractors who fail to prevent serious abuses. Earlier this year, the office determined that three female carpenters with a Puerto Rico firm were sexually harassed and denied work hours comparable to those of male workers. At times, the company failed to provide the women with a restroom, and they had to relieve themselves outdoors, the office said. Under a conciliation agreement, the company agreed to pay $40,000 to the three women.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014 A17 000IWLU For women, some hope for a Rosier future Associated PressFelicia Zerilli gazes at conduit Aug. 14 in New York while walking down a hallway at a construction site where she works as a shop steward.

California lawmakers have approved a measure that would make the state the first to impose a statewide ban on single-use plastic bags. SB270 cleared the Senate on a 22-15 vote Friday and sent to Gov. Jerry Brown. It was approved by the Assembly a day earlier. The bill by Democratic Sen. Alex Padilla of Los Angeles would prohibit singleuse plastic bags at grocery stores and large pharmacies in 2015 and at convenience stores in 2016. It includes $2 million in loans to help manufacturers shift to producing reusable bags and lets grocers charge 10 cents each for paper and reusable bags. For years, a statewide ban has been an elusive goal for lawmakers trying to reduce the buildup of plastic waste in oceans and waterways that costs millions of dollars to clean up.Corvette Museum to fill in sinkholeA massive sinkhole that swallowed eight sports cars wont be a permanent attractionat the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky.

Associated PressMANILA, Philippines The Philippine military chief says more than 70 Filipino peacekeepers have escaped from two areas in the Golan Heights that came under attack by Syrian rebels. Gen. Gregorio Pio Catapang said Sunday in the Philippine capital, Manila, that the Filipino peacekeepers separately moved to positions that were safely away from any further threat. According to Catapang, the Filipinos were surrounded by the rebels and had to return fire in selfdefense before managing to escape after a sevenhour siege. Catapang says: We may call it the greatest escape. The clashes came after Syrian rebel groups, including the Nusra Front, overran the Quneitra crossing on the frontier between Syrian and Israeli controlled parts of the Golan on Wednesday, seizing 44 Fijian peacekeepers. Other U.N. peacekeepers were able to flee from a different encampment that that was also surrounded by rebels of the Nusra Front, al-Qaidas Syrian affiliate, they said. The Nusra Front also surrounded the nearby Rwihana and Breiqa encampments, where other U.N. peacekeepers were holed up. The gunbattle began early Saturday at the Rwihana base some 1.5 miles from Quneitra, where 40 Filipino peacekeepers were surrounded by Nusra fighters who were ordering them to surrender, said Rami Abdurrahman of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The Philippines Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin gave a similar account but did not name the armed group. Abdurrahman, whose information comes from a network of activists throughout Syria, said he was not aware of any fatalities among the 40 Filipino peacekeepers in the Rwihana encampment as sporadic fighting continued throughout the day. A Philippine military spokesman, Lt. Col. Ramon Zagala, also said there were no casualties. The 35 Filipino U.N. peacekeepers at the Breiqa encampment were extracted on Saturday morning, with the assistance of Irish peacekeepers who rushed to the scene, said officials. The Irish U.N. peacekeeper battalion, which is tasked with emergency responses, evacuated all the Filipino U.N. peacekeepers on Saturday morning, said a military official who spoke on condition that his name and country of origin not be revealed, citing army policy. He said there was no shooting involved, and no injuries. He said that the Irish battalion also evacuated another base on Friday but provided no further details. An Israeli military spokesman confirmed a number of U.N. peacekeepers entered Israel. He spoke on condition of anonymity.

Syrian rebels attack peacekeepers in Golan Heights Associated PressBRUSSELSThe European Union on Saturday warned that the apparent incursion of Russian troops on Ukrainian soil pushes the conflict closer to a point of no return, with new economic sanctions being drawn up to make Moscow reconsider its position. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, who briefed a summit of the 28-nation EUs leaders in Brussels, said a strong response was needed to the military aggression and terror facing his country. Thousands of the foreign troops and hundreds of the foreign tanks are now on the territory of Ukraine, Poroshenko told reporters in English. There is a very high risk not only for peace and stability for Ukraine, but for the whole peace and stability of Europe. French President Francois Hollande and Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt said upon their arrival for the summit in Brussels the leaders will make a political decision and then ask the EUs executive arm to finalize the fine print of new sanctions. However, because several EU nations fear the fallout of sanctions on their own economies, it wasnt immediately clear whether the required unanimity would be reached for immediate punitive measures, or whether the leaders would set Russia another ultimatum. But Lithuanian leader Dalia Grybauskaite insisted Russias meddling in Ukraine, which seeks closer ties with the EU, amounts to a direct confrontation that requires stronger sanctions. NATO estimates that at least 1,000 Russian soldiers are in Ukraine even though Russia denies any military involvement in the fighting that has so far claimed 2,600 lives, according to U.N. figures. British Prime Minister David Cameron also warned that Europe cant be complacent about Russian troops on Ukrainian soil. Conceding ground in the face of a reinvigorated rebel offensive, Ukraine said Saturday that it was abandoning a city where its forces have been surrounded by rebels for days. Government forces were also pulling back from another it had claimed to have taken control of two weeks earlier. The U.S. and the EU have so far imposed sanctions against dozens of Russian officials, several companies and the countrys financial industry. Moscow has retaliated by banning food imports. Grybauskaite said the EU should impose a full arms embargo, including the canceling of already agreed contracts. France has so far staunchly opposed that proposal because it has a $1.6 billion contract to build Mistral helicopter carriers for Russia. Russia is the EUs No. 3 trading partner and one of its biggest oil and gas suppliers. The EU, in turn, is Russias biggest commercial partner, making any sanctions more biting than similar measures adopted by the U.S. Associated PressRIYADH, Saudi Arabia The king of Saudi Arabia has warned extremists could attack Europe and the U.S. if there is not a strong international response to terrorism after the Islamic State group seized a wide territory across Iraq and Syria. While not mentioning any terrorist groups by name, King Abdullahs statement appeared aimed at drawing Washington and NATO forces into a wider fight against the Islamic State group and its supporters in the region. Saudi Arabia openly backs rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar Assad, but is concerned the breakaway al-Qaida group could turn those very same weapons on the kingdom. If neglected, I am certain that after a month they will reach Europe and, after another month, America, he said at a reception for foreign ambassadors Friday. Official Saudi media carried the kings comments early Saturday. These terrorists do not know the name of humanity and you have witnessed them severing heads and giving them to children to walk with in the street, the king said, urging the ambassadors to relay his message directly to their heads of state. The Islamic State group has been fighting moderate rebels, other extremists and Assads forces in Syria for nearly three years. Iraq has faced an onslaught by the Sunni extremists and their supporters since early this year, and the country continues to be roiled by instability. Meanwhile Saturday, police in Iraq said a suicide bomber drove his explosivesladen car into an army checkpoint in the town of Youssifiyah, killing 11 people, including four soldiers, and wounding at least 24 people. Youssifiyah is 12 miles south of Baghdad. Hours later, a bomb targeting an army patrol killed two soldiers and wounded five in Latifiyah, a town 20 miles south of Baghdad.

After a brief hiatus, they appear weekly in the Chronicle Excursions section.Day 26Day 26 is Valentines Day and the only day so far with no scheduled events. After a month on board, we are well aware of the various options of onboard activities. We choose to make this day a day of leisure, spending time at the pool, seeing a movie in the afternoon and having lunch in the aft buffet, which is one of our favorite locations on the ship. I spent some time on the scrap heap challenge designing and building the ships hull. I chose cardboard which I scrounged from the gift shop.

With its original geometrical layout and high topiary walls, its a rare example of an early baroque garden style. And its now reclaiming the unique features it had when it was completed in 1675, including fountains, sculptures inspired by Greek and Roman mythology, a Dutch bulb garden, citrus trees, fishponds and a rabbit hill.

A20SUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: This is about Worried Grandma, who suspected child abuse. As a retired elementaryschool counselor, I worked with many children who had to visit a noncustodial parent. Many times, these people did not know how to love or parent the child, but wanted to own the child anyway. They claimed the child when it was convenient for them. Your suggestion of supervised visitation and parenting classes was right on target. In Virginia, school teachers and counselors are mandated abuse/neglect reporters. I learned to document in writing any report given to me by a child, family member or neighbor. Then I called Child Protective Services. Your readers should know that unrealistic expectations (a small child using a lawn mower) and isolation (not eating at the table with the family) could be emotional abuse to a 5-year-old. These incidences are hard to prove, but they should be investigated. Sometimes what you observe is just the tip of the iceberg. People should also know that failure to treat a sick child can be medical neglect. Over a three-month period, I repeatedly phoned the mother of a child with a bad cough. He was never taken to the doctor despite promises to do so, and I reported that. Later, the mother was arrested for making methamphetamine in the home. There may or may not be abuse in this case, but people should report any suspected abuse to the National Child Abuse Hotline (childhelp.org) at 800-4A-CHILD. That will guarantee an investigation.

RISAK CorrespondentLike so many Americans, Florence McCann couldnt wait. So she lied.McCann was 18 and, after graduating from South Hills High School and receiving a vocational school diploma outside of Pittsburgh, she wanted to get involved in the war effort. The year was 1943 and McCann had her sights set on becoming part of the WAVES, or Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service, a newly formed division of the U.S. Navy. They started the WAVES in McCann said. I wanted to get away from where I was, which was Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I was an orphan from the time I was 11. McCann was raised by her stepmother, a contentious relationship she wanted to end. To join the WAVES, you had to be 20 with parent or guardian consent, 21 without, she said. So I found a baptismal certificate and changed my birth date. Her reason for joining: I saw the ad for Join the Navy. It wasnt to see the world because we werent allowed out of the country. But I just needed to get away from here and do something with my life. It was just let me see what I can do to help, she said. We needed people to take over jobs so the men can go and fight. I thought, OK, Ill do that if I can. McCann would go through a similar type of training that men endured, including boot camp at Hunter College in the Bronx, New York City. From boot camp I went to Oklahoma A&M, which is now Oklahoma State, McCann said, with the idea to learn to do office work the Navy way. Now 90 and living in Inverness, McCann would spend nearly three years in the WAVES, serving her entire enlistment in Washington, D.C. As well as her various office duties, she was often called upon to join her fellow WAVES for inspection drills, marching for such dignitaries as Eleanor Roosevelt. I was in the Bureau of Ships Research Development Office, she said. I did have to take dictation. My commander would come and say I want a letter written to so-and-so, saying such-andsuch. I would type it up and give it to him for his signature. It wasnt until 1942 that the U.S. military had evolved at least somewhat to involve women in their ranks, with the creation of both the WAVES and the WACs (Womens Army Corps, originally known as the WAACs, or Womens Auxiliary Army Corps). By the end of World War II, nearly 90,000 women volunteered for duty with the WAVES and another 150,000 would serve with the WACs. Both units served with distinction and capably fulfilled their duties, which included take over jobs so men can go and fight. Indeed, Gen. Douglas MacArthur referred to the WACs as my best soldiers, adding that they worked harder, complained less and were more disciplined than men. The WAVES were officially disbanded in 1948, when they were absorbed into the regular Navy. The WACs would stick around until 1978, when women finally became a part of the Army. Still, being in any branch of the military service as a woman in the 1940s had its stereotypes. When people hear I was in the service, they automatically say, Nurse? McCann said. The only nursing I ever did (in the WAVES) was after the service. Although recognizing the necessity of allowing women into the service, the Navy in the early stages of World War II was not yet equipped to handle the situation. They (housed) us at the Navy Receiving Station in Anacostia, she said. This was a row of barracks that went off a main hallway. We were in the last one down, the rest were all guys. There was no covering on the windows, it was one big room and there were bunk beds. The only thing they did (for privacy) was, dumb, on the last male building they put Bon Ami on the inside of the windows to cover them up. Trying to cloud the vision in the mens barracks next door by using a household cleanser was not a viable solution, particularly since that temporary covering could easily be removed with a fingernail. The problem was resolved when the Navy took over portions of hotels throughout D.C., with McCann and many of her fellow WAVES bunking at one of those. She would also be housed for a time at American University. We had an officer in charge, we had a curfew, she said. We had everything you had in the regular Navy excepting if it was a room for one, there were two people in it. Thats the way they doubled up and everything. There was also a lack of adequate office space at the start of the war. We were bused in at night, she said. Where people worked during the day, we would work at night. The Navy Department had buildings set up next to the Washington Monument; McCann would walk past the White House every day on the way to work. She met husband Bob when he was on leave from his aircraft carrier, the Block Island, in January 1944. McCann would later have six sons and a daughter, and she remains active in several veterans associations, including the American Legion and the Veterans of Underage Military Service (VUMS). In October 2013, McCann would take a trip back to D.C. on the Honor Flight. To see the people who came out to honor us, it was really awesome, she said. It was an honor that was well earned. As McCann said, the work she and the rest of the WAVES did was imperative. It was necessary, she said.

The Flower Garden was created near an archbishops chateau, but it proved so difficult and expensive to maintain that it was neglected. Ironically, that neglect allowed it to survive for centuries mostly unchanged, though some features disappeared or suffered damage over time. Restoration efforts began in the 1950s, and the Flower Garden was added to UNESCOs World Heritage list in 1998 together with the chateau and another garden on its grounds. The European Union is now funding restoration of about a third of the Flower Garden, using copper engravings from 1691 as a guide for what it once looked like. Here, time has stopped, somehow, said Lenka Kresadlova from the National Heritage Institute. As it served as a kitchen garden, most of its artistic features, including the topiary, were preserved. It was a fortunate coincidence that allowed this garden to be preserved in its original authentic shape, when all other gardens created in the era ceased to exist. Thats why we are so unique. Kresadlova said the projects goal is to give the visitors a chance to relive the atmosphere. We might not be faithful to every single detail but the whole atmosphere and the spirit of the place should return to the early baroque time. Here are some of the restored features from the Flower Garden that offer visitors a glimpse of a 17th-century world.Dutch GardenGrowing bulbs called Dutch flowers was a prestigious activity among the upper class in the 16th and 17th centuries. These spring-blooming flower beds have been restored with 20,000 bulbs of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and Kaisers crown (or crown imperials). The Dutch Garden also includes a fountain with the original statue of a water god, and is considered one of the Flower Gardens most authentic spots.Orange GardenOriginally, this area had three rows of citrus trees. It formed a very prestigious part of the garden because only the richest people could afford citrus trees in Central Europe due to the severe weather. In winter, the area was covered with a wooden shelter and heated, but the structure was difficult to maintain and did not survive. In the 18th century, it was replaced by an orangery, but that, too, did not survive. Its also not known what the wooden structure looked like, so the citrus trees that are there today were planted in wooden barrels and will be placed in glasshouses in winter.Trout PondsTwo square pools with fountains in the middle survived as ruins. They reclaimed their original look, including stone balustrades. Despite being called trout ponds, they never housed trout, just carp, and the new ponds will get some fish.Rabbit HillRabbits lived in a series of burrows in an artificial hill with a statue of Diana, goddess of the hunt, placed on the top. The hill disappeared over time but has been rebuilt. The statue survived.AviaryA large baroque enclosure for birds with 10 huge windows, located in the middle of a pool on an island, survived to the 20th century in poor condition and was not much improved by a partial reconstruction in the 1960s. The aviary and pool have now been completely renovated.HistoryKromeriz was once a summer seat of bishops and archbishops from the nearby city of Olomouc. The Flower Garden was commissioned by Bishop Charles II Lichtenstein-Castelcorn, designed by architect Filiberto Lucchese and completed after Luccheses death by Giovanni Pietro Tencalla in 1675. Its a rare example of an early baroque style that combined an Italian Renaissance garden with a newer French baroque approach typical of the period of Louis XIV, the Sun King.Original LayoutThe space is divided by a network of paths with a central rotunda, with labyrinths, fountains and a colonnade with 44 sculptures inspired by Greek and Roman mythology. knife I borrowed from the buffet. I assembled the hull and used multiple layers of duct tape to give the ship strength and make it completely waterproof. The rest of our group are constantly patrolling the ship looking for anything that might be incorporated into our design. The ship has gone all out creating a special Valentines dinner and everyone at table 49 agrees that this is the finest dinner so far. At the end of the day, we have traveled 8,708 miles since we left Fort Lauderdale.Day 27Day 27 is another at sea day. I attend another lecture by John Maxton Graham, who then follows with an open-floor question-and-answer period. Once again, Mr. Graham is impeccably dressed and the classic example of a British gentleman. I began the questioning by asking for a brief summary of his life starting from birth. John explained that there were economic problems in England and his parents moved to the United States to escape them. Then he dropped the bomb: John was born at Margaret Hague Maternity Hospital in Jersey City, New Jersey, the same place I was born. He was raised in Montclair, New Jersey, and attended New Jersey schools. He eventually moved to New York City and thats where he lives today. Wow! My shining example of the perfect British gentleman turns out to be a Jersey guy. I mean no offense by this, I was just so surprised; he is still among the most interesting people Ive ever met in my life and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with him. At the end of the day, we have now traveled 9,029 miles since we left Fort Lauderdale.Day 28Day 28 does not dawn. During the night we crossed the International Date Line and Day 28 disappeared.

Sam Franklin returned an interception 76 yards for a touchdown on the last play of the game to lead Citrus High School to a 6-0 win over No. 10-ranked Springstead High School. It was only the second time in school history Citrus has defeated a ranked opponent. Jeremiah Lucas scored three times, twice on touchdown pass receptions and once on a 75-yard kickoff return in Lecanto Highs wild 49-42 loss to Umatilla High. Lucas also returned another kickoff 50 yards to set up a score. Backup quarterback Khyrel Harvey threw a 31-yard touchdown with time expired to lead Crystal River High to a 26-21 win over Nature Coast. Harvey, who had never played a game at quarterback, also threw another 17-yard touchdown pass and finished the night 5 of 7 for 69 yards. Keshon Hopkins caught two touchdowns of 17 and 31 yards (the latter the game-winner) and scored on a 58-yard double reverse in Crystal River High Schools 26-21 win over Nature Coast. He accounted for three of Crystal Rivers four scores. Harvick dominates to win in AtlantaHAMPTON, Ga. Kevin Harvick led the final 159 laps to beat Joey Logano and win an unusually wreck-free NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Harvick, who will start from the pole Sunday night in the NASCAR Sprint Cup race, took the lead on the 37th lap and ruled the 1.54-mile tri-oval for his third win of the season in 11 races. Kyle Larson, who started second, finished third. Kyle Busch was fourth. There was only one lead change, no crashes and two yellow flags, including one after light rain began to fall on Lap 121. Cars ran 13 laps under caution before the race resumed.

Silencing the Finns in the second quarter on the scoreboard and in the stands, where their rabid fans filled an entire side of the arena, the Americans allowed just a pair of free throws in the period, outscoring their overmatched opponents 29-2. The U.S. will play Turkey on Sunday.From wire reports Associated PressSerena Williams reacts Saturday after a shot against Varvara Lepchenko during the third round of the U.S. Open in New York. Associated PressTampa Bay Rays catcher Ryan Hanigan hits an RBI sacrifice fly off Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Allen Webster during the second inning Saturday in St. Petersburg. Rays first baseman James Loney scored on the play. Associated PressNEW YORK Once again, John Isners trip to Flushing Meadows ended in the third round. Once again, it happened with a loss to Germanys Philipp Kohlschreiber at that stage. And once again, there are zero American men in the U.S. Opens round of 16 something that had never happened until it did last year at the countrys tennis championship, which was first played in 1881. On a windy, cloudy evening, the 13th-seeded Isner hit 42 aces, saved all five break points he faced and yet it wasnt enough. Unable to capitalize on plenty of openings, and surprisingly outplayed in a trio of tiebreakers, Isner lost to the 22nd-seeded Kohlschreiber 7-6 (4), 4-6, 7-6 (2), 7-6 (4). Its disappointing for me personally not for America as a whole, Isner said. It was the third straight year that these two men faced each other in the third round in New York, and Kohlschreiber won them all. He eliminated the big-serving, 6-foot10 Isner in five sets in 2012, and in four sets in 2013. Isner only converted 1 of 12 break points he accumulated. Got a little tight, to be honest, and didnt move my feet on some points that I really needed, Isner said, resting his chin on his left fist. I had chances. I just didnt convert. Isner loses to Kohlschreiber in third round See OPEN/ Page B5 Odorizzi stellar as Tampa Bay evens series at one apiece Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Jake Odorizzi and two pitchers combined on a one-hitter as the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Boston Red Sox 7-0 on Saturday night. Coming off a start Monday night in which he gave up a career-high eight runs over four innings in a 9-1 loss at Baltimore, Odorizzi (10-11) allowed a fourth-inning single to Will Middlebrooks, three walks and struck out seven over seven innings. Jeff Beliveau and Kirby Yates completed the one-hitter. Tampa Bay set a single-season team record with its 18th shutout this year. Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia was shaken up and removed from the game in the second inning. It appeared Pedroia was struck in the head by the arm of Logan Forsythe as the Rays infielder was sliding headfirst into second while advancing on a flyball. No additional details about Pedroias injury were immediately available. James Loney had an RBI double during a three-run second off Allen Webster (3-3) that put the Rays ahead 3-0. Ben Zobrist made it 4-0 on his second run-scoring grounder of the game in the fourth. Tampa Bay went up 7-0 with a three-run fifth. Two runs scored when catcher David Ross was charged with an error for an off-target throw to first on Brandon Guyers bunt single. Webster gave up six runs and five hits over four-plus innings. The Red Sox loaded the bases with two outs in the seventh when Odorizzi walked three consecutive batters, but worked out of trouble by getting a pop fly from Xander Bogaerts. The start of the game was delayed 12 minutes after a series of stadium lights at Tropicana Field went out during a thunderstorm just before the scheduled first pitch. The Rays said the problem was caused by lightning striking a nearby electrical substation. TRAINERS ROOM: Bogaerts was activated from the seven-day concussion list. He missed six games after being hit in the head by a pitch from Seattles Felix Hernandez August 22. Rays CF Desmond Jennings was out of the lineup for the second straight game due to a sore left knee. UP NEXT: Red Sox RHP Clay Buchholz (5-8) and Rays RHP Alex Cobb (9-6) are the scheduled starters Sunday. Cobb is 7-0 with a 2.14 ERA over his last 11 starts.RAYS TEE OFF ON RED SOX

Associated PressTORONTO Drew Hutchison pitched seven shutout innings, Jose Bautista homered for the fourth straight game and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the New York Yankees 2-0. Mark Teixeiras fourth-inning double was the only hit allowed by Hutchison (9-11), who walked two and struck out nine. Aaron Sanchez retired all six batters he faced for his first major league save as the Blue Jays improved to 8-17 in August and, at 6867, avoided falling below .500 for the first time since May 14, when they were 20-21. Bautista hit a two-out, two-run homer off Michael Pineda (3-3) in the first. Its the second time in his career Bautista has connected in four consecutive games. He also did it from Sept. 28 to Oct. 2, 2009.AMERICAN LEAGUE White Sox 6, Tigers 3 (Game 1)CHICAGO Chris Sale overcame a shaky start to strike out a seasonhigh 13, beating Max Scherzer in a matchup of All-Star aces and leading the Chicago White Sox past the Detroit Tigers 6-3 in the first game of a day-night doubleheader. Adam Dunn hit a two-run homer and Tyler Flowers also went deep against Scherzer (15-5), who fanned 11 in 6 2/3 innings. But he was touched up for six runs, five earned, and nine hits. Sale (11-3) struck out at least 10 for the 17th time in his career, tying Hall of Famer Ed Walsh for the franchise record. The left-hander allowed three runs and six hits in seven innings. Jake Petricka pitched the ninth for his 10th save.Orioles 3, Twins 2BALTIMORE Chris Davis hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the seventh, Jimmy Paredes homered and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Minnesota Twins 3-2 on Saturday night.

Paredes, who was called up from the minors Thursday, went 2 for 4 with his first homer and had two RBIs. Davis is batting just .188, but has five RBIs in his past two games. Zach Britton pitched a perfect ninth for his 30th save the 10th different Orioles to record that many saves. Danny Santana had two hits for the Twins and has 40 for the month, most among all rookies. Minnesota went 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position.Astros 2, Rangers 0HOUSTON Scott Feldman pitched a three-hitter and the Houston Astros beat the Texas Rangers 2-0 Saturday night. Feldman (8-10) struck out five and walked one in his second complete game this month. He also had one Aug. 3 against Toronto, yielding one run and eight hits in that game. The three hits allowed matched a career best for Feldman, who also threw a three-hitter against San Diego on May 1, 2013. His previous shutout was Sept. 6, 2013, against the Chicago White Sox. Held hitless for the first five innings by Robbie Ross Jr., the Astros scored twice in the seventh off reliever Phil Klein (0-2). Carlos Corporan doubled to put runners at second and third, and Jake Marisnick had an RBI infield single. Corporan scored on Kleins throwing error to first.Tigers 8, White Sox 4 (Game 2)CHICAGO Kyle Ryan pitched six scoreless innings in his major league debut, and the Detroit Tigers salvaged a split of Saturdays doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox with a potentially costly 8-4 victory. Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera pulled up lame while running out a grounder in the fourth inning, forcing him from the game. The All-Star has been dealing with a sore right ankle. Ezequiel Carrera, Don Kelly and Ian Kinsler each had three hits for Detroit in the nightcap. Ryan allowed five hits and walked two.NATIONAL LEAGUE Cubs 5, Cardinals 1 (Game 1)ST. LOUIS Starlin Castro hit one of Chicagos three solo homers and Felix Doubront pitched seven strong innings in his National League debut, sending the Cubs to a 5-1 victory over the slumping St. Louis Cardinals in the opener of a day-night doubleheader. Logan Watkins and Chris Valaika also connected for Chicago in the makeup of a May 14 rainout. The lastplace Cubs hit four home runs Friday, giving them seven in two games against the Cardinals. St. Louis has lost four in a row for the second time this season. The Cardinals began the day one game ahead of Atlanta and 1 1/2 up on Pittsburgh for the second NL wild card. The Cubs have won nine of 13.Pirates 3, Reds 2PITTSBURGH Neil Walker hit a three-run homer in the first inning and the Pittsburgh Pirates made it hold up behind starter Vance Worley, beating the Cincinnati Reds 3-2 for their fourth straight victory. Walkers 18th home run put the Pirates ahead 3-0 against Alfredo Simon four batters into the game. Pittsburghs winning streak matches its longest of the season. Worley (6-4) allowed two runs one earned and three hits in 6 1/3 innings to snap a career-worst, threestart skid. Mark Melancon pitched a perfect ninth for his 26th save after Justin Wilson and Tony Watson combined for 1 2/3 scoreless innings. Despite retiring 12 batters in a row between the third and sixth, Simon (13-9) fell to 1-6 since pitching in his first All-Star game last month. Todd Frazier homered for the Reds.Marlins 4, Braves 0ATLANTA Jarred Cosart pitched seven effective innings, and the Miami Marlins beat the Atlanta Braves 4-0 to stop a three-game losing streak. Cosart (3-1) allowed seven hits, struck out five and walked one. The right-hander, who was acquired in acquired in a July 31 trade with Houston, is 3-0 with a sparkling 0.65 ERA in his last four starts.

Atlanta had won three in a row. Aaron Harang (10-9) yielded four runs, three earned, and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings.Phillies 7, Mets 2NEW YORK Ryan Howard drove in three runs, Marlon Byrd homered and the Philadelphia Phillies defeated the New York Mets 7-2.

Olympic sprinter Jeff Demps and veteran safety Major Wright are among the final cuts for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Coach Lovie Smith trimmed the roster to the 53-player limit Saturday, releasing Wright and defensive lineman Ronald Talley and waiving Demps, quarterback Mike Kafka and four other players. Demps made his NFL debut last year, appearing in two games after joining the Bucs following the close of his track and field season. He was a member of the 2012 U.S. Olympic 4x100 relay team that won a silver medal at London, and initially entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with New England. Unable to obtain a full-time commitment from Demps, the Patriots traded him to Tampa Bay in exchange for LeGarrette Blount in April 2013.

Penn State won 26-24. Penn State, UCF give Irish eyes a treat Knights lose on last-second FG Associated PressDUBLIN UCF might have found its replacement for Blake Bortles. Unfortunately, the Knights didnt find him until the second half Saturday in a heartbreaking 26-24 loss to Penn State in Ireland. Second-string quarterback Justin Holman accounted for all three UCF touchdowns, one in the air and two on the ground. His 6-yard run with just 1:13 left put the Knights ahead for the first time, 24-23, in front of a raucous 55,000strong crowd in Dublins Croke Park, a stadium that normally hosts Gaelic football matches, not American football games. Those 73 seconds proved to be just enough time for Penn States sophomore sensation, Christian Hackenberg, to drive the Nittany Lions 55 yards in eight plays for a game-winning 36-yard field goal. Coach George OLeary spoke bluntly at times defensively when questioned afterward about why he started redshirt freshman Pete DiNovo instead of the more athletic Holman, only to bench DiNovo halfway through his first start after he went just 3 for 8 for a paltry 18 yards. Holman finished 9 of 14 for 204 yards. Asked whether Holman had ever showed signs of Saturdays performance in earlier practice sessions, OLeary snapped back, If he did, I would have been playing him. Hackenberg capping a 32-for-47, 454-yard performance coolly directed a seven-play drive to set up Sam Fickens fourth successful field goal as the Penn State bench swarmed the field. Saturdays win was the first for new Penn State coach James Franklin. On the field, Penn State players received the Dan Rooney Trophy, a football made of ancient Irish bog wood and specially commissioned for the game. Associated PressArkansas running back Jonathan Williams is tackled by Auburn linebacker Cassanova McKinzy on Saturday during the first half in Auburn, Ala. Auburn won 45-21. Top 25ROUNDUP Associated PressAUBURN, Ala. Jeremy Johnson passed for 243 yards and two touchdowns in the first half and Nick Marshall returned from suspension with a 19-yard scoring run to lift No. 6 Auburn to a 45-21 opening victory over Arkansas on Saturday. The Tigers scored the final 24 points after the Razorbacks managed to force a halftime deadlock. The game was delayed 1 hour, 28 minutes due to lightning in the area during the fourth quarter. Marshall, who led Auburn to the SEC title last season and national championship game, started the second half after serving his punishment for getting ticketed in July for possession of a small amount of marijuana. Junior college transfer Dhaquille Williams supplied the most electrifying performance with nine catches for 154 yards in his debut. Cameron Artis-Payne rushed for a career-high 177 yards. Jermaine Whitehead returned an interception 33 yards for a touchdown.No. 2 Alabama 33, West Virginia 23ATLANTA Blake Sims was good enough to finish his first start at quarterback for Alabama, getting plenty of help from Amari Cooper, T.J. Yeldon and Derrick Henry, and the second-ranked Crimson Tide held off West Virginia 33-23 Saturday. Sims was 24-for-33 for 250 yards and added 42 running, playing the entire opener at the Georgia Dome. The fifth-year senior beat out Florida State transfer Jake Coker for the start. Tide coach Nick Saban had suggested both quarterbacks would play, but Sims never came out. Yeldon (126 yards rushing and two touchdowns), Henry (113 yards rushing and a score) and Cooper (12 catches for 130 yards) provided plenty of support.No. 5 Ohio State 34, Navy 17BALTIMORE Redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett threw for 226 yards and two touchdowns in his college debut, and the Buckeyes got their 25th consecutive regular-season victory. Elevated into a starting role after senior Braxton Miller injured his right shoulder on Aug. 18, Barrett went 12 for 15 including an 80-yard TD pass to Devin Smith that put the Buckeyes up 20-14 with 4:10 left in the third quarter. Ohio State (1-0) won despite allowing Navy (0-1) to gain 370 yards on the ground. Barrett became the second freshman since 1950 to start an opener at quarterback for Ohio State. He ran nine times for 50 yards, did not throw downfield often and relied heavily on a ground game that finally wore down the Midshipmen in the fourth quarter. After Navy closed to 20-17 with 13:54 remaining, the Buckeyes launched a 10-play drive that featured just one pass. Ezekiel Elliott converted a fourth-and-1 from the Navy 45 and Barrett threw a 19-yard completion before Elliott ran in from the 10. Barretts 9-yard touchdown pass to Mike Thomas made it 34-17 with 2:09 left.No. 7 UCLA 28, Virginia 20CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. UCLA scored three defensive touchdowns before Brett Hundley led them on a critical secondhalf scoring drive and the Bruins escaped Virginia. Hundley, widely regarded as one of the nations top quarterbacks, was harassed all day by Virginias pressure defense, and made the biggest play of the day for UCLA with his feet. It came on a 6-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter when he overpowered safety Quin Blanding on a 6-yard TD run. The Cavaliers, 21-point underdogs, trailed 28-20 and had a first down at the Bruins 19 late in the game, but three consecutive running plays netted just two yards and irritated the fans, and linebacker Myles Jack disrupted Matt Johns fourth-and-8 pass to Doni Dowling and it fell to the ground. UCLA led just 21-17 and had not scored an offensive touchdown when it took over at its 34 late in the third quarter, but thats when Hundley finally put a drive together against the Virginia defense. The Cavaliers sacked him five times and held him to 39 rushing yards, but couldnt shut him out.No. 11 Stanford 45, UC Davis 0STANFORD, Calif. Ty Montgomery returned his first career punt for a touchdown and caught five passes for 77 yards and another score, and the Cardinal tuned up for a date with No. 15 Southern California next week. The All-American kick returner, who was cleared by team doctors to play earlier this week, looked ready to be the Cardinals do-it-all playmaker again. He ran his first punt back 60 yards for a TD and lined up all over the field, including once as a wildcat quarterback.No. 12 Georgia 45, No. 16 Clemson 21ATHENS, Ga. Todd Gurley ran for 198 yards and three touchdowns, returned a kickoff 100 yards for another score, and No. 12 Georgia gained some early style points in the national race with a 45-21 victory over No. 16 Clemson. Gurley made the most of his limited touches on a sweltering night, averaging 17.2 yards every time he got his hands on the ball. He set a school record for all-purpose yards with 293, breaking the record of 290 set by Rodney Hampton in 1987. Georgia (1-0) broke open a game that was 21-21 at the half, shutting down Clemson (0-1) and an offense that didnt look nearly as effective without Tajh Boyd and Sammy Watkins.No. 17 Notre Dame 48, Rice 17SOUTH BEND, Ind. Everett Golson threw touchdown passes of 75 and 53 yards and ran for three more scores in his return after missing the 2013 season for academic impropriety. Golson was 14 of 22 passing for 295 yards and ran for 41 yards on 12 carries. He also had two near-misses on long pass attempts. He scored on an 11-yard run on a planned keeper, a 14-yard scramble and a 4-yard run on a blown handoff.No. 22 Nebraska 55, Florida Atlantic 7LINCOLN, Neb. Ameer Abdullah ran for a career-high 232 yards and Tommy Armstrong Jr. passed for a career-high 271 yards and two TDs. The Cornhuskers rushed for 498 of their 784 total yards and won their 29th straight opener, the longest streak in the nation. Florida Atlantic was paid $1 million to visit Lincoln and will get another $1 million for playing at No. 2 Alabama next week. The Owls went 75 yards on their first series to tie it at 7, but they gained just 51 more before Nebraskas defense began freely substituting after the third quarter.

SPORTSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014 B5 LARRYBUGG CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER Jerry Gisclair earned the right to flash the ivories Saturday morning. The 42-year-old Tampa resident won not one but two races in the Crystal River Labor Day Sprint No. 3 Triathlon. He won the regular race with a 1:03:32 clocking. He also won the mens series with a time of 3:13:48.6. I feel proud to win at this age, Gisclair said. I have never won this race before. I prepared a lot more. I took the lead in cycling. I had a good run. I was ahead 3 minutes going in (on the bike). It really was a beautiful day. I have been doing this race since 2010. Its flat and fast. Great race director. He does an exceptional job. Second place went to Nicolo Pavolino of Rome, Italy. He had a 1:07:16. He was recruited by John Hovius of Clermont and is highly ranked in Italy. He does not speak English. Gainesville resident Cillian Martin is only 13, but he took fifth with a time of 1:09:52. He may be a future triathlon star. He started competing when he was 8. He is in a swim club and is an eighth-grader. Tarpon Springs resident Celia Dubey, 42, warmed up for her own triathlon by winning the womens race with a 1:09.17. She owns Total Fitness Gym and brought 25 competitors to the race. The Tarpon Springs Triathlon will be Saturday, Sept. 6, at Fred Howard Park. Dubey sponsors it. It is a fundraiser for college scholarships and she is the volunteer race director. I love this race, Dubey said. Perfect conditions. He (race director Chris Moling) has perfected this race. It is so well-run. I have done the race a dozen times. I have been doing this race since 2000. Hudsons Sherrie Mauzy was the womens series winner with a 3:57:38. Lecantos Bob Brockett was not only named one of Citrus Countys Healthcare Heroes, by the Chronicle, but took eighth in the race. The 59-year-old oral surgeon has found a son-in-law he doesnt have to drag kicking and screaming to the triathlon: Benjamin Fletcher, 24, took third with a time of 1:08.44. He ran with his bride Calli and beat dear-old dad in the race. Fletcher is a nurses assistant in Gainesville. The conditions were great, Brockett said. No wind. He (Fletcher) passed me on the turnaround and buried me. We are starting a tradition. He has been in four races and hadnt lost in his age class. Its really fun to watch this. Im very surprised, Fletcher said of his success. Its nice. Its a family event, Calli said. He is just naturally good at everything. Crystal River High School business teacher Laura Wingate ran in the Chicago Triathlon this summer and is trying to start a triathlon club at Crystal River High School. There were 16 attending a tri club meeting. The current was amazing, said Wingate, 49. The bike was fast and furious. The run was good. It wasnt as hot as I thought it would be. It was great. People are awesome. The women pros were there (Chicago). I did Olympic-level. It was hard. I gained some on the bike and run. I did a sprint up in Travers City in Michigan. There were about 200 athletes registered for the race. We are happy, Moling said. We have great weather. We are happy to have a good, safe race.

After a two-hour lightning delay the same conditions that caused last weeks preseason game to be canceled Dunnellon soon wished the game against the Wolf Pack never happened. The team was out of tempo all night, with overthrown passes, costly penalties and unrecovered fumbles. While the team put together a few drives that got the Tigers deep into West Port territory, they had to settle for a pair of Zachary West field goals after failing to get the ball into the end zone. Three hundred fifty yards of offense, youve got to get the ball in the end zone, head coach Price Harris said afterward. You have to finish drives. Indicative of how the night would go, Dunnellon received the opening kickoff and put together a nearly 6minute drive and moving the ball to the West Port 30. Then a false start, unsportsmanlike conduct and offensive offside penalty cost field position and took away momentum. West came up short on his subsequent 43yard field-goal attempt. On numerous drives, quarterback Kobie Jones had wide-open receives but put overthrew the ball, while a few catchable passes went through receivers hands. The Tigers defense didnt fare much better, with missed tackles resulting in gained yardage by Wolf Pack running backs, and a few forced fumbles defenders couldnt pounce on in time. Referees didnt help matters, with Dunnellons Rudy Sinflorant ending up at the bottom of a pile with a ball ruled recovered by West Port. The Wolf Pack benefitted from a strong running attack on rain-slicked fields, with Kameron Duncan carrying the ball 12 times for 155 yards. Quarterback Ian Guthrie completed 8 of 9 passes with a touchdown, also running one in for a score. Jones finished with seven completions on 18 attempts for 88 yards. Wide receiver Matthew Livermore said afterward his team wasnt mentally prepared, and that at practice there would be no more playing around. Tigers fall to Wolf Pack in opener Associated PressFor the first time in his career, Champ Bailey was told he isnt good enough. Jettisoned by the New Orleans Saints after a difficult training camp, the 12-time Pro Bowl cornerback was the most notable name when NFL teams trimmed their rosters to 53 active players Saturday. A close second was Rams rookie Michael Sam, the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team. The seventh-round draft pick, watched as closely as any rookie in the league this summer, couldnt make a team stacked with pass-rushers. He still has a chance to get picked up by another team or to make the Rams practice squad. Players with fewer than four seasons in the league are subject to waivers. Those who clear waivers and have practice-squad eligibility can sign Sunday when teams fill out their 10member developmental units. Vested veterans who were released this weekend are free agents who can sign with anybody. But some might have to wait to get scooped up because their full 2014 salaries are in effect guaranteed if theyre on a roster in Week 1. It just might be the end of a stellar career for Bailey, who said after the Super Bowl that he wouldnt retire because I still know I can play this game. Only seven players in NFL history have more Pro Bowl selections than Bailey, who signed with the Saints following his release from the Denver Broncos in the spring. Other notable players who were either waived or released this weekend included:Jets WR Stephen Hill, a 2012 second-round draft pick out of Georgia Tech who failed to follow in the footsteps of fellow alumnus Demaryius Thomas and Calvin Johnson. He finished the past two seasons in IR.Bengals RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis, the teams top rusher the past two seasons who was made expendable when the team drafted LSUs Jeremy Hill in the second round.Jets CB Dimitri Patterson, ending a bizarre week that began when he left the team before its preseason game against the Giants on Aug. 22, leading to a suspension. Also Saturday, the Bills lured Kyle Orton to Buffalo to back up secondyear starter EJ Manuel in their latest QB shuffle. Orton, who backed up Tony Romo in Dallas the past two seasons, could be in line for significant playing time in Buffalo. Sam, Bailey top list of NFL cuts SEAN ARNOLD/For the ChronicleRookie Hornets driver Tammy Armstrong, of Wildwood, lost control of her car Saturday night during her feature race at the Citrus County Speedway in Inverness. The car went over the wall on the second turn. Don Grinde, track medical official first on the scene, said she was unconscious when medical first arrived, but was awake and able to move all her extremities when she was taken away following the incident and airlifted to Ocala Regional for precautionary reasons. We took precaution as we do for any accident, Grinde said. There was medical and fire staff on site, and the response was very fast. She had the best of care from the moment she went over the wall. No other vehicles were involved in the incident. Rookie driver injured in wreck at Speedway The 29-year-old Isner is best known for winning the longest match in tennis history, an 11-plushour marathon spread over three days that ended 70-68 in the fifth set at Wimbledon in 2010. Currently, he is the only U.S. man ranked inside the top 45, and has made clear he does not necessarily enjoy that distinction. Fans at Louis Armstrong Stadium tried to boost their guy with chants of Lets go, John! And they roared throughout the fourth set, especially when Isner would edge ahead within a game. But this one mainly came down to the tiebreakers, usually a strong suit for Isner: He entered the day 37-17 in set-deciders this season, while Kohlschreiber was 9-11. He was just better, Isner said. Ive got to be better. I know I can be. Just not showing it. Earlier Saturday, 57thranked Sam Querrey entering the day, the only other man from the host country remaining of the 12 originally in the draw put up little resistance while bowing out against No. 1 Novak Djokovic 6-3, 6-2, 6-2. Kohlschreiber now will face seven-time major champion Djokovic in the fourth round. Other fourth-round matchups: No. 3 Stan Wawrinka, the Australian Open champion, against No. 16 Tommy Robredo or 19-year-old Nick Kyrgios; 2012 U.S. Open champion Andy Murray against No. 9 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga; No. 5 Milos Raonic against No. 10 Kei Nishikori. Wawrinka advanced when Blaz Kavcic withdrew because of pain in his right foot. Given Isners history against Kohlschreiber at the U.S. Open, its tough to call that result surprising, even if the American is ranked higher and is 4-0 against the German everywhere else theyve played. Instead, look to the women for the Did that really happen? results. In the latest of a series of stunners, fourth-seeded Petra Kvitova who won her second Wimbledon title last month was sent home with a 6-4, 6-4 defeat against Aleksandra Krunic, a 21-year-old qualifier from Serbia who is ranked 145th. That means that the women seeded 2, 3 and 4 behind No. 1 Serena Williams are all gone before the end of Week 1. Im an outsider, Krunic said. I honestly didnt know what to expect from myself at all. You know, I dont know my limits. Of the top eight women, only Williams, No. 5 Maria Sharapova and No. 7 Eugenie Bouchard remained and Bouchard still had to play her match. Williams, the two-time defending champion, is the last American singles player left; there were 17 in the womens draw, and shes beaten three, including a 6-3, 6-3 victory against occasional practice partner Varvara Lepchenko. Williams meets 50thranked Kaia Kanepi of Estonia, who knocked out No. 15 Carla Suarez Navarro 7-5, 6-0. Other womens fourth-round matchups: No. 11 Flavia Pennetta against No. 29 Casey Dellacqua, and Krunic against two-time U.S. Open runner-up Victoria Azarenka. Its been an unusually difficult Grand Slam season for Williams, who lost before the quarterfinals at each of the years first three majors. OPENContinued from Page B1 Associated PressNORTON, Mass. With an orange ribbon on his hat and nine birdies on his card, Matt Kuchar pulled within a shot of the lead Saturday in the Deutsche Bank Championship. Not that he needed a reminder, but a message posted on the scoring table spoke to his emotions. Players were offered a chance to donate to a trust fund for the 4-yearold daughter of Lance Bennett, his caddie. Bennetts wife, Angela, died of a seizure Wednesday. Kuchar decided to play to raise awareness and get the tour involved in helping the family. His performance certainly helped. Ryan Palmer overcame a rocky start for an even-par 71. Jason Day struggled at the end for a 68. They were tied for the lead on the TPC Boston going into the third round of a FedEx Cup playoff event that ends on Labor Day. Kuchar was a shot behind after a 66 that featured six consecutive birdies around the turn. On his bag is Brian Reed, a friend who introduced Kuchar to Bennett several years ago. Kuchar was overcome by emotion Friday when he saw caddies and even some players wearing a black hat with the orange ribbon in honor of Bennetts wife. Palmer, who started with a 63, made birdie on his first hole and thought he was off to the races. He followed with a double bogey, a bogey and then tried to hang. A birdie on the final hole put him at 8-under 134. Day looked as though he might pull away. Day ran off five birdies on the front nine for a 31 to build a two-shot lead, only to drop four shots coming in.Durant, Daley split lead at Shaw Charity ClassicCALGARY, Alberta Bob Tway shot a 7-under 63 for a share of the secondround lead with Joe Durant and Joe Daley in the Champions Tours Shaw Charity Classic. Durant and Daley shot 68 to match Tway at 10-under 130 at Canyon Meadows. The 55-year-old Tway is winless on the Champions Tour after winning eight times on the PGA Tour, including the 1986 PGA Championship. He had an eagle, seven birdies and two bogeys. Gary Hallberg, Mark McNulty and David Frost were 9 under. Hallberg shot 65, McNulty 66, and Frost 68. Bernhard Langer topped the group at 8 under after a 65. Tom Pernice Jr. and Bart Bryant, tied for the first-round lead after matching the course record of 62, struggled in the second round. Pernice had a 70 to drop into a tie for seventh at 8 under, and Bryant shot 71 to finish at 7 under.Knost leads in Fort WayneFORT WAYNE, Ind. Colt Knost shot his third straight 5-under 67 to take a one-stroke lead in the Hotel Fitness Championship, the first event in the Web.com Tour Finals. Knost, the 29-year-old former SMU player who won the 2007 U.S. Amateur, had three birdies and eagled the par-5 12th at Sycamore Hills to reach 15 under. He was fourth last week in the Portland Open to finish 34th on the Web.com Tours regular-season money list. Nos. 26-75 on Web.com money list and Nos. 126-200 in the PGA Tours FedEx Cup standings are fighting for 25 2014-15 PGA Tour cards based on earnings in the four-event series. The top 25 players on the Web.com money list earned PGA Tour cards last week. They are competing against each other for PGA Tour priority, with regularseason earnings counting in their totals and the final leader getting a spot in The Players Championship. Second-round leader Sam Saunders and Englands Greg Owen were a stroke back. Saunders, Arnold Palmers grandson, had a 70, and Owen shot 68. Saunders finished 45th on the Web.com money list, and Owen was 27th.Otto holds two-stroke lead at Italian OpenTURIN, Italy South Africas Hennie Otto shot a 1-under 71 to take a twostroke lead into the final round of the Italian Open.

Section CSUNDAY, AUGUST 31, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW Ihad written a really nice column after the election results Tuesday congratulating commissioner Scott Adams on defeating one of his fellow incumbents. But I killed it before deadline. It has been widely reported that Adams business partner Charlie Strange has been behind the $90,000 slash-and-burn campaign to oust J.J. Kenney from the commission and rout the return of former commissioner Winn Webb. Regardless of the brutal attack ads employed by Strange, they succeeded with their strategy. The ends justify the means in politics. But I killed the congratulatory column because on Thursday Scott Adams proved he couldnt be a good winner he had to continue his schoolyard bullying tactics. Adams and Kenney were sitting next to each other at a meeting, and neither realized the recording devices had already been activated. Instead of being gracious in victory, Adams proceeded to torment Kenney after his re-election loss. When Kenney admitted to Adams that he might apply for a veterans service job in another county, Adams told him: Ill talk to the senator and try to stop it. He was of course referring to Sen. Charles Dean of Inverness, his business partner in the Sumter County landfill. But when contacted by a Chroniclereporter later that same day, Adams who is always pounding his chest telling folks he only tells the truth said he was referencing not Sen. Dean, but that other senator whats his name? Bill Nelson. Really? Thats the truth? Adams told the Chroniclereporter he wasnt threatening Kenney, he was just fighting against him using insider trading to find another job. Scott Adams just cant stop being a bully See WINDOW/ Page C6 Mike ArnoldFROM THE EDITORS DESK We have some of the most astute readers in the country, especially when it comes to tracking weather. About a month ago, a reader called to point out some discrepancies with our rainfall totals listed under the Almanac heading on Page A4, both daily and year-to-date. They rightly noted we had a significant amount of rain that day in Inverness, which our local weather watcher reported in his daily entry. However, the almanac only reported a trace of rain. While investigating, we discovered the service we use to generate the weather data had been using erroneous data for the Inverness area. In fact, we found there is no weather station in Inverness reporting daily rainfall totals. We asked the service to find an area in Citrus with a weather station, and they discovered Crystal River Airport has a reporting station. We began using their weather stations numbers about two weeks ago. This created another issue for readers. Those who have been following the almanac realized the totals and yearly average had suddenly changed. This prompted a number of emails and phone calls, most of whom were curious about the change, while a few others taught me several new vocabulary words that I cant reprint here. They, of course, were right, and we apologize for the inconvenience. After discussion with readers and among ourselves, we decided to see if there was another way to provide credible data for precipitation. The local water district provides daily and monthly rainfall totals, but those figures are based on a weighted average and would always be a day or two behind because they report through midnight, which is after our deadline. If readers have suggestions, or if there are Nice weather were having, wouldnt you say? See WEATHER/ Page C5 Recently, I have spoken to leaders in Citrus and Hernando counties about many things in regard to both counties, as the district I represent actually covers both.The key points of my recent conversations have been focused on roads and the future of the counties. I have long been known to be a supporter of the Suncoast Parkway and an advocate for projects that are working to clean our waters, and have supported those in the community that are leading this charge. What many havent known is that at the same time I have been suggesting a strong leveling of the counties when it comes to infrastructure, economic growth and the counties as a whole. That leveling effect will start when we as a state start to have a better understanding of the needs of the Nature Coast.

Page C2SUNDAY, AUGUST 31, 2014 Help available for Parkinsons sufferersAs a Citrus County resident diagnosed and living with Parkinsons disease (PD), the news surrounding Robin Williams diagnosis has hit close to home, as does the speculation in the media regarding the disease, its medications, depression and suicide risk. According to the Parkinsons Disease Foundation (www.pdf.org), depression is very common in people with PD. It may occur early or late in the course of the disease, and may wax and wane in severity. A person with Parkinsons, or his or her caregiver or physician, may at first dismiss the signs of depression because they assume that it is Parkinsons that is causing the problem or because they assume it is normal to be depressed when faced with this illness. There is no clear answer as to what causes depression in PD, but most specialists agree that it is probably a combination of living with the stress of a progressive chronic disease and the anticipated loss of mobility and quality of life, along with changes in the neurochemistry of the brain that accompanies this disease. Many of the areas of the brain that are affected by PD are also important in controlling mood. If you are concerned that you or a loved one with Parkinsons may be depressed, you should talk with your doctor. In most cases, it can be successfully managed. Awareness about Parkinsons disease and its motor and nonmotor symptoms need to be raised among people with PD, caregivers, health care professionals and the community. It is more than a movement disorder. Current research shows that it affects many aspects of life, including sleep, anxiety, memory and concentration. Each person will have a unique journey with the disease and its symptoms. But there are places to turn for help. If you or a loved one with PD experiences symptoms of depression, talk to your doctor and take advantage of the many resources that are available. One such resource is the Parkinsons Disease Foundation (PDF). You can visit their website at www.pdf.org, call their National HelpLine at 800-4576676, or email them at info@pdf.org.Margaret Hoffmann Parkinsons Disease Foundation (PDF) research advocate Hernando SeaWorlds stock took a dive last week in the backlash against its treatment of captive killer whales. The company reported that attendance at its marine theme parks fell 4.3 percent during the first half of the year, and predicted revenue will continue to drop substantially in the coming months. In the entertainment business, this is known as a wake-up call. Its time for SeaWorld to quit using orcas like trained poodles and think up a new act. The companys headaches began last summer with the release of a powerful documentary called Blackfish, which chronicles the exploitation of killer whales beginning with the first specimens that were herded up and taken from their family pods in the late 1960s and early s. Some of the footage is sickening to watch, and it doesnt get much easier as the film goes on. By the time its over, youre disgusted, angry and in no mood to take your family to see orcas doing tricks for a bucket of dead fish. Unfortunately for SeaWorlds shareholders, Blackfish came out in July 2013, only three months after the company went public. The documentary was widely aired on CNN, and provoked such a strong public reaction that Willie Nelson, Heart and other popular music groups canceled scheduled performances at SeaWorlds Orlando park, home to the troubled orca featured in Blackfish. Weighing 6 tons, Tilikum is believed to be the largest male killer whale in captivity. Hes also a basket case, depressed and unpredictable after a long, tedious life of swimming circles in concrete pools. No killer whale in the wild has ever attacked a human, but Tili has been involved in the deaths of three persons most recently that of SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau, thrashed and drowned in February 2010. That incident, recorded on tourists videos, is the heartbreaking focus of Blackfish. Afterward, SeaWorld officials actually blamed Brancheau, speculating her ponytail had incited the whale. That was a clear signal that the company would stoop to any tactic in order to protect its lucrative performingmammal franchise. It didnt work. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) ruled that SeaWorld put its trainers in dangerous situations, and ordered the company to install barriers separating the orcas from employees. A federal judge agreed with OSHA, but SeaWorld vigorously appealed, saying that contact with killer whales is essential to the product.... In other words, customers wont line up merely to observe one of the planets most spectacular, intelligent animals you gotta make them critters do some stunts! Like swim round and round with a full-grown human balancing on their nose yeehaw, thats educational. And also the highlight of any whales day. But not so fast. In April, a U.S. appeals court ruled 2-1 that SeaWorld had exposed its trainers to recognized hazards while they interacted with orcas. The decision allows OSHA to set stricter rules for contact. SeaWorld, which owns 11 theme parks in the United States, said it has already enacted new safety measures, including removing trainers from the water during the killerwhale performances. Still, California is debating a proposed ban on keeping any orcas in captivity. The publicity has hurt business at SeaWorlds San Diego park, and was a factor in the companys stock dropping last week. Back in Orlando, moody Tilikum is still on display. Despite his history of attacks, the SeaWorld empire highly values his stud service. Because its now illegal to take killer whales from the sea, captive breeding is the only source of fresh talent for the companys product. Tilikums sperm is priceless, having produced more than 20 baby orcas. For older whales that were snatched from the wild decades ago such as Tilikum, and Lolita at the Miami Seaquarium a return to freedom could be perilous. They dont know how to hunt for fish, and nobodys going to toss them a mackerel for doing somersaults in Puget Sound. If they cant safely be released, theres got to be a better future. Rodeo horses get more space to roam than captive orcas. SeaWorld says they look forward to their daily tricks, which is another way of saying theyre bored stiff most of the time. If only the company cared about the whales as much as the staff that works with them do. For the past year, SeaWorld has blasted Blackfish as inaccurate and misleading, yet the credibility of the experts and former trainers interviewed in the documentary holds up. See for yourself. You can order the film from Netflix, iTunes or other sites. Everybody should watch it parents, kids and especially investors considering SeaWorld stock.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Scott Carnahans victory over former county commissioner Winn Webb, and Ron Kitchens defeat of Commissioner John JJ Kenney reflect the electorates discontent with the path the commission has taken in recent years. Carnahan has no general-election opposition, so has secured his seat on the board; Kitchen will face noparty-affiliation candidate Michael Joey White in the general election. Its understandable that some will bemoan well-financed attack-ad and robo-call strategies; that there was an orchestrated, behind-the-scenes effort to defeat Webb and Kenney; that voter turnout could always be better. But, those factors mean little at the end of the day. The fact is, the voters want change and made that loud and clear at the polls. Congratulations go to Scott Carnahan and Ron Kitchen for offering a new direction to the county and stepping up to be advocates for change. Most on the current commission have had their sights set on long-term plans with a belief that they can facilitate projects that will nurture the growth of business and the economy. The most obvious two examples: Port Citrus and the medical corridor. Kitchen and Carnahan have a more pragmatic approach and feel initiatives such as the port and corridor are fine for the private sector but not the role of government. To that end, the commissions attraction to public/ private partnerships can be expected to skid to a halt. Efforts of the commission, in conjunction with the Economic Development Council, to actively court new businesses to the community will fade. Its safe to anticipate tourism development being put on the back burner; momentum for a new animal shelter to wane; funding for community centers to be reconsidered; and, possibly, the pursuit of grant dollars to be passed over. Whether all that is good or bad or somewhere in the middle is up to individual interpretation, but if its the will of the people then our representative democracy is working well. The voters have spoken and it is time for change. THE ISSUE:Impact of election on county commission.OUR OPINION:The will of the voters will bring change.

Please bring your pets inside if at all possible. And if you cant, then you shouldnt have a dog. Also, lets get this dog kennel built. Im 100 percent behind JJ Kenney. Lets get this dog kennel built, some air conditioning for these animals. Lets get going. Pretty soon its going to be winter and if I was an animal, I dont know whether Id want to be cold or hot. I think Id probably want to be hot, but colds not good either, especially for an old dog thats not used to it. All right, so take care of your pets.Dogs > peopleI just came back from (a store). I have cancer, Im taking chemo and my red count is down, my immune system. But here comes a woman with a dog in and that dog isnt anything but a mutt. And I asked the lady why they let it in I could get a disease from it and she said they would be fined $5,000 if they asked if it was a service dog or not. So here we go. Animals are more important, dogs are more important than people are.Prestigious parkI would like to say congratulations to the Homosassa Wildlife Park for being the National Gold Medal Winner for Florida State Parks for the third time in a row. Congratulations, park.Release the pantherI take great offense and objection to the article on the Florida panther in the wildlife park. The reason I object is they had this healthy animal in a small cage and if you go there, you can see that it has dug big grooves walking back and forth like a prisoner in our worst jails. If a panther takes 50-mile range, according to game wardens, to hunt, that small space is not good. They should release the panther in the wild. They always give the objection that they cannot forage for itself. I doubt that, as it is one of the most intelligent animals on Earth. Also, I object to keeping manatees in the wildlife park. It gives the state a large revenue. However, they would be much happier loose in the wild. They always say it could not forage for itself because it would be not trained by its mother. Youre telling me an animal related to the dolphin is not smart enough to eat when it was released?Take responsibilityCalling the Chronicle in reference to the Have a heart call in Sound Off (Aug. 23), where they say that they cant afford to have their pet spayed or neutered, so this is why a lot of dogs and cats end up at the facility. Its called responsibility. If you know your animals in heat and its your responsibility to protect that animal, then keep it away from other animals until its out of heat. THE CHRONICLEinvites you to call Sound Off with your opinions about local or statewide subjects. You do not need to leave your name, and have less than a minute to record.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014 C3 There is something worse than a bad hair day Abad hair day? The idiom has come to mean any day on which nothing goes right and everything goes wrong. The very worst day of my life was the day on which I fell ill with spinal meningitis: Jan. 13, 1966. It started out bad and got worse a bad hair day deluxe. Nowadays, sometimes I awake in the morning feeling a little bit blue, but when that happens, all it takes to lose the blues is to go and find Cheryl. Once I make my way to where she is, without fail, Im greeted by her lovely smile and with a cheery good morning and then everything is OK. The mental bad hair day doesnt stand a chance against my Cheryl. In the most literal sense, a bad hair day is a day on which ones hair is unusually difficult to manage. Today, I had one of those days. My hair was not behaving at all. It was waving off course and there were three tufts extending in three different directions. When I was a little fellow and my hair would be difficult, my mothers answer was to paste it down in a most disgusting way. Ill spare you gentle readers the details. This morning, I stood in front of a mirror with comb in hand, trying to get the stubborn stickups to stay down. I dabbed those tyrannical tufts with tap water to try to tame them. There is a reason mothers use what they use it is stickier than tap water. In the end, my hairdo just sort of looked rumpled. It then dawned on me that anyone who knew my father would have given high odds against my having any hair whatsoever by this time. I fooled them. I still have enough hair for it to aggravate me. And, friends, therein lies a victory. There is something worse than a bad hair day a no-hair day!Fred Brannen, an Inverness resident, has been a Chronicle columnist since 1988 and is the author of the recently published novel, At the Bottom of Biscayne Bay. He may be contacted at fbrannenjr@ gmail.com or via brannenbooksllc.com. Fred BrannenA SLICE OF LIFE Letters to THE EDITOR Living in a divided countryRecent events have clearly shown how far apart large segments of our country really are. Consider the conflict between Israel and Hamas and the treatment of Christians in regions controlled by ISIS and Boko Haram. Many on the left believe its always preferable to settle disputes among groups, classes and nations by discussion, negotiation, and compromise, not by conflict, coercion or war. Those on the right agree but only when there are shared interests and ideas. Disputes arising over a clash of basic interests and opposition of root ideas must be settled by power, coercion and sometimes war. Those on the right want educational expenses of all elementary and secondary students paid for by tax revenue. Presently, those who choose not to attend tax-supported public schools must pay twice for their education. The left refuses to change this. Pro-life advocates believe the moment of conception is the beginning of human life and life must be protected from that moment on. Pro-abortion advocates disagree or express uncertainty. They believe a woman must have unrestricted access to abortion at any time, preferably paid for by our taxes. Can these views ever be reconciled? I think not. How do both sides view taxation and the role of government? The left has historically pushed high progressive income taxes; they feel the government has the responsibility to ensure everyone has enough food, clothing, shelter, education, security against unemployment, and illness. The right believe in small government performing clearly defined functions well and low taxes. Only in extreme cases should government intercede, rather it should maintain the conditions so citizens, individually or collectively, can make their own arrangements as they see fit. Think of the IRS hearings. The president was originally outraged but months later theres not a smidgen of corruption. Meanwhile Lois Lerner refuses to testify, her emails have vanished and the Administration doesnt want to grant outside computer experts access. Witnesses constantly revise their stories as Democrats call everything a witch hunt and a waste of money. Republicans say its a serious violation of law and a blow to free speech. The House is suing the president for exceeding his authority and usurping the duties and responsibilities of Congress. In a recent Wall Street Journalarticle by attorneys David Rivkin and Elizabeth Foley, they quote the words of Articles I and II of the Constitution and conclude what the president did was an obvious overreach. The lawsuit protects the separation of powers and individual liberty. They quote Supreme Court decisions which held power to execute doesnt include power to revise clear statutory terms. In 2013 Mr. Obama expressed that same view during a question and answer period. Heres the main point in a nutshell. If consensus cant be reached it doesnt mean Congress is broken. It simply means the country is badly divided and until compromise is reached the status quo is the correct path. When Congress makes a law and the president executes it as written citizens will know whom to reward or punish in the next election. Unconstitutional action using a pen and a phone merely allows the president to avoid potential political damage in an upcoming election. Democrats have essentially rejected every one of these points and yes, were in for tough time ahead.Joseph P. Ryan HomosassaFundraiser response overwhelmingI think you might be interested in learning about the overwhelming response we have had for the upcoming Susan Mitchell Fundraiser Auction. The fundraiser will be from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 7, at the Homosassa Museum Cafe. You have probably seen various notices about the event being held to honor and also to raise money for Susan. This woman has given so much to the community and now needs our help since being diagnosed with ALS in 2012. This energetic and generous woman now has the use of just her right arm and hand, and yet she maintains her positive attitude and communicates via a note pad or her computer. Her love of music and support of local musicians will be a focus of the event, which she will be attending. Live music will be performed all day. So many musicians and groups have volunteered, that each one gets just 15 minutes to perform! But I am not writing you just to highlight her plight. I want to give credit to the overwhelming community and business response to our call for items to be auctioned. In addition to the numerous donations from individuals, we have had great donations from local business owners. Id like to publicize some of the terrific items that have been donated from our local business community. Plantation on Crystal River: Two-day/one-night stay plus two rounds of golf, including cart. Lakeside Golf and Country Club: Two rounds of golf. Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park: Two gift certificates for park entrance two adults and two children. Sunflower Springs Assisted Living: Gift basket. Superior Residences of Lecanto: Gift basket. Outback Steakhouse: Gift certificates. Burkes of Ireland Pub: Gift certificate. Will Construction Corp.: gift certificates. Sauced Hogs BBQ: Gift certificate. Salon 211 Hair Design: Gift certificate. Blueberry Hill Riding Stables: Gift certificate. Also donating auction items: Franklin Anderson Gallery, Homosassa Frame and Art Gallery and Virgillio Insurance. Of course, we also want to let the public know about all the amazing items (approximately 100) in the auction, so they can come with a check book and ready to get some great values. For more information about the event, or for tickets, call Linda at 352-746-0655 Thanks so much for your help.Bonnie Schirmers coordinator of the auction for the Susan Mitchell charity fundraiserDont buy into free-money miracleDouglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift left me speechless with their column in the Aug. 26Chronicle. They describe what they call Americas free-money miracle. They say there is nothing wrong with the Fed printing all the money we need as long as it doesnt cause inflation. Like all the past failures of socialism, they dont seem to recall history which says that printing money to pay for things you cant afford has never worked. They see no problem in piling on the debt, now scheduled to reach $24 trillion by the time Obama leaves office. They compare todays 1.5 percent interest rate to the 6.4 percent during Reagans day and point out that we arent paying all that much more in total interest. They cant even remember back to 2008 when the economy nearly spun out of control. What makes them so sure the Fed can maintain a 1.5 percent interest rate? If the interest rate was 6.4 percent during Reagans time, what keeps it from returning to that rate? The CPI is low but the true inflation rate is much higher, approaching 5 percent when you include fuel and food which the CPI doesnt. People who shop for their own groceries and pump their own gas know inflation is accelerating. The liberal elite who dont have to bother with those chores have no idea what the impact of that is on working America. They say we should take advantage of the low rates and continue borrowing, its like free money. If we had a balanced budget or were running a surplus that would be closer to the truth, but we are still running $500 billion deficits. Our national debt now increases $1 trillion every two years instead of every year as it did during Obamas first term. We are paying $300 billion in interest on the national debt. If interest rates should return to the average of the last 100 years our interest payments would jump to $900 billion and if it returned to the rates during the Reagan years, our yearly payments would be $1.2 trillion. Part of their confusion is they dont understand the concept of cyclic phenomena. They only understand linear trends. Its a degree warmer over the past 150 years so that must mean that trend will continue. Interest rates have been moving downward the past 20 years so they will continue to remain low. If you show these people a graph of the mean global temperature over the last 5 million years, their eyes glaze over. Its the same for a graph of interest rates over the past 100 years. They deal in sound bites, not numbers and facts, but I have to confess that Americas freemoney miracle is an absolute hoot. Its just fantasy, not fact, but Im sure most liberals will buy into it.Harley Lawrence Homosassa Hard workers are Americas backboneLabor Day reminds us that the reward of idle hands is an empty stomach, but work provides us with food and shelter and puts socks and shoes on our childrens feet. Labor is important, because without labor we would be perpetually hungry, filthy, ignorant, and naked. Together with sleep it occupies two-thirds of our life. Now, think about this: Labor and sleep are like the two sides of a coin. Sleep makes labor possible and labor makes sleep necessary. Good health requires a careful balance between the two. The robust men and women who preceded us started out with nothing. They never wavered in the face of adversity. It is their unrelenting grit and elbow grease that has brought us some measure of stability, comfort, leisure and, yes, joy and love. So labor, properly understood, is industry of mind and body. If you place a small child on a stool in a bare room he will quickly and bitterly complain that he has nothing to do. This shows that spirit and body are inextricably joined together. Every ordinary task that is carried out with meticulous care is transformed into a work of art. And this is true for women as well as for men. The value of the labor performed by women must be universally recognized as equal to that performed by men. Indeed, a woman who puts her heart into her work is every bit as much an artist as the Italian guy who painted the Mona Lisa. My old boss, Henry Ford, once said, The man who does not get a certain satisfaction out of his days work is losing the best part of his pay. I myself am now 85 years old and not a day of my life has passed that I have not witnessed change. While change now occurs rapidly in every sphere of human endeavor, honest, hard-working men and women still constitute the backbone of society. They know firsthand there is nothing in all this world that tastes so sweet as the fruit of ones own labor.Franklin Aretz Beverly HillsThank you, Susan Gill and staffI would like to thank Susan Gill and the staff of the Supervisor of Elections Office for a wonderful experience in understanding all it takes to complete the functions of her office. This election was not just about the people who ran for office, but also all the new equipment needed to make the process a more efficient and less costly means of bringing the results to us in a fast manner. I took notice of the new slide machines that were used to ID the voter with their drivers licenses during the early voting process. Hopefully this will be adopted at the precinct polling places in the future. Ms. Gill has even tuned up her website during the mail-in and early voting process to inform us how many people turned out and mailed in their votes. I have nothing but praise for her and her staff for being very cool and kind under such great pressure. They took all calls and answered them with great patience and kindness which shows that we have professionals doing a thankless job. On Election Day I drove around to just a few of the polling precincts and would like to thank all of you good volunteers who were very kind and helpful to all the voters and made it a pleasant experience in processing our vote. You are just amazing. To all citizens who voted, thank you for taking time to let your voices be heard.Charles Knecht Sr. Dunnellon Local flair a pleasant surpriseThis letter is not only to the editor but to all residents and readers of the Chronicle. I moved here Aug. 1. I love the people and place. A free copy of the Chroniclewas delivered today. I read it and was impressed. The national news and international news was wellcovered, but what impressed me the most was the local flavor of the newspaper. I know you can get most of the news from the Chronicleonline, but did you know that a group is looking for pinochle members or Meals on Wheels is looking for volunteers? And having a newspaper in your hand is analogous to reading a book. It is just not the same on a Kindle Fire. So I am going to subscribe, and I urge you to tell your friends to do so also. To the editor and staff: Great job!Gerald Childers Beverly Hills

Cents & nonsensePlease someone tell One penny wont kill you that its not 1 cents on every item you buy. He needs to learn how to do mathematics. Its 1 percent. One percent, not 1 cents. So on $100 youre talking about $1. On $1,000 its $10. So he needs to do his math before he starts commenting and being critical of people who dont want to pay 1 percent more on their tax, period.Editors note:To clarify, the call referenced above which appeared on Page C3 Sunday, Aug. 24 did not claim the tax proposalwas a single cent on each purchased item. Furthermore, because a dollar is comprised of 100 cents, 1 cent on each dollar is the same as 1 percent of each dollar.Marions tax rateGet your head and the rest of yourself out of the sand. Marion County has a 6 percent sales tax, not 7 percent. If you like paying taxes, go to California.Editors note:According to the Florida Department of Revenue (FDOR), Marion County has a total sales tax rate of 6 percent. They at one time had a 7 percent sales tax rate, which expired at the end of 2009. FDOR reports show 12 counties, including Citrus, have sales tax rates of 6 percent. The other 55 Florida counties have some type of surtax ranging between an extra half-percent to 1.5 percent added to the 6 percent. Locally, Hernando County has a 6.5 percent sales tax; Levy and Sumter counties have 7 percent sales taxes. Hernando Countys extra .5 percent will expire at the end of the year. The counties with the highest surtax of 1.5 percent (total of 7.5 percent sales tax) are: Calhoun, Escambia, Gadsden, Jackson, Leon, Liberty, Madison, Monroe and Walton. The average sales tax rate for all Florida counties combined is 6.8 percent. Wasting tax moneyRegarding the TRIM notices and the absolute absurdity of our county commissioners, who tell us our taxes are lower than theyve ever been, got this to say: My taxes went up again this year. They went up last year $50 on each of the bills for fire services, but yet you look in the itemized taxes, you already pay for fire service. Whats going on? Duke Energy gave us money. We supposedly lease the hospital. Theres a lot of new construction. Why do these commissioners keep raising our taxes? All theyre doing is spending money trying to make this a major metropolitan area so that they can touch more money. Help for fixed incomesI was looking at todays paper (Aug. 21) at the Sound Off and someone was looking for assistance on a fixed income and I am also on a fixed income, but I get Social Security disability and theres a lot of things that I need to have taken care of and I wish I could be looking for assistance also. So if you could, if you know of a place or whatever, can you put it in the paper so we people who are on fixed income, like Social Security disability or Social Security, can have some? Because we dont get much money and we have to try to make it stretch the whole month, which is not easy. So if you could do that, I would really appreciate it and the rest of us would also.Falling through the cracksIm a 51-year-old female who does not qualify for Medicaid because I dont have any children. I do not qualify for Social Security because Im only in my 50s. I broke my arm. I cannot work. Ive had no income since July 4 and I can find no help. I will be homeless soon. Is there any help out there for people in my situation? If there is, somebody please let me know in the Chronicle.Help needed to repair roofI read in the paper about someone inquiring about help with a new roof and I am on SSI. Im 69 years old. My roof is leaking and has been for about three years. I was wondering if you could please print where I can inquire about help with payment of a new roof also. I cant do it on my own and Im going to have the whole thing falling on me one of these days. If you could please print it in Sound Off, I would appreciate it and Im sure that the other people will appreciate it also.

Yes, it is true the vets need to lower their prices in order for the animals to be spayed or neutered, but these animals need to be in an air-conditioned facility. Im all for the new facility and the jailbirds taking care of them. No, theyre not going to be in there 24 hours a day with the dogs, hogging up the air conditioning. Jails are airconditioned, for heavens sake. Theres people in there that freeze, from what Ive heard. So why not give the animals some air conditioning?Looking for missing road moneyI think I finally figured out where the road money has gone. First there was Port Citrus, whose cost well never know ... then there was Ottawa Avenue, then there was the Meadowcrest Taj Mahal, then there is the almost $3 million for an animal shelter, which does not include human or poor people, and now we have over $3,000 for the hiring of a veterinarian who was not from the United States even though we had several candidates who were. Im also beginning to understand this BOCC will never, ever bother to listen to what the voters say.Enforce 10-ton ruleState Road 44 and Rock Crusher Road is a road that goes through Crystal Oaks subdivision straight through to U.S. 19. At both ends of the road is a big sign that says No trucks over 10 tons. Every day many, many trucks go through Crystal Oaks subdivision. Ive seen the deputies pull over many a passenger car for speeding. Ive never seen them pull over any trucks for violating the rules of the road indicating that theyre over 10 tons and they should not go through Crystal Oaks subdivision. The roads are in bad enough condition as it is. With them not enforcing the law, the roads are going to be a lot worse.Check it out yourselfAll these people that are against the animal shelter getting a new building, they need to go down to the old one and see the dogs that are crammed into the cages and see how depressing it is. And spaying and neutering is not expensive. For people that dont have the money, there is ways to do it. And if you cant afford that, then you shouldnt have a dog or a cat because they are expensive. And it seems like they just like them when theyre puppies and then theyre all stuck in cages after that. But as far as this new building; yes, they do need a new building. And as far as inmates someone wrote they should be out (cleaning) the streets yeah, they should be out (cleaning) the streets. But they could put some in the shelter, too. So anybody that has negativity for this animal shelter, they dont have a heart. Stub-out saga ridiculousThe Oak Village Boulevard stub-out saga continues to wane on. It is getting to be ridiculous and I certainly hope that the residents of Sugarmill Woods are not paying to continue to defend Oak Village extension. It has gotten to be ridiculous. Two lawsuits going on and one of which has now named our entire community. I am very concerned about this. I think its time to reset and I think that the rest of the community needs to stand up and say, Are you kidding me? This has gone too far. The Oak Village Boulevard stub-out is getting to cost more.Why hire outside county?Id like to know why we are spending all this money to have a veterinarian from out of the country when we had three applications and two of them were from Citrus County. Do we have that kind of money to waste? Remember, voting is coming around the corner and believe me, if you cant give a good explanation of why youre doing this, then I dont think youre going to get voted in. We have no money to waste on people that are not our citizens. Lets put these men to work that live in Citrus County and keep Citrus County going. What is wrong with you people? Be safe or be scabiedThis is for all nursing homes and hospitals to make sure people come in with no scabies. This is very important for people to know what itis or what its all about. Go on to Healthline.com for scabies and it will tell you what its all about. What is it? And its very, very, very, very important for everybody (to) know about scabies. I just let everybody, everybody know what its all about. Its very, very important. Its for health.True customer serviceIm calling the Chronicle in reference to having my car repaired at Georges Tire. Let me tell you something: They went out of their way. I want to thank Vinny, Jimmy and especially Mike. They drove to my house, which is 7 miles away, to pick me up so I can go pick up my car because I had no way of getting there to get it. It was very nice of a business to go out of their way to pick up their customers and help them pick up their vehicle. Really, again, Georges Tire, all the guys, Vinny, Jimmy and especially Mike, who picked me up. Thank you very much. That is true service to a customer. Thank you.Dont overturn our votesVoted all my life. Will continue to vote. I vote in the primaries. I vote in major elections. But the people of the state of Florida have voted for no, absolutely not, same-sex marriage. The people in Florida will vote down the marijuana, legalization of medical marijuana. But my point is, the Supreme Court or the federal judges dont agree with what the people want to do. We voted against gay marriage and they overturned it. So what is the sense of people voting? I voted all my life and I believe in the system, but Im really turning against it now. If you vote for something, it should stand. No one should be able to turn it around. SOUND OFFCALL563-0579

I am specifically talking about U.S. 41 from Brooksville through Floral City and Inverness through Hernando. Each of these areas has been struggling to recover from the recession, even as we know the whole of the county is as well. In these areas, the recovery seems to be much slower. The beauty of the Nature Coast that we live in isnt just the coast, it is the aspect of Old Florida that we have on the east side of the county that is a gem as well. We have lakes, historic old towns and a trail system that people have flocked to on an ever-increasing level. This gem can be a strong and consistent economic driver if we support it. But first you have to understand how this is an economic driver. In 2013, Travis H. Brown wrapped up many years of economic research in a book titled How Money Walks. This book examined how money moved from one area to another over 15 years by looking at the IRS returns of individuals. The state of Florida has had a growth of people moving here that totaled $86.4 billion during the 15year period from 1995-2010. In the research Brown did, he also developed a website so anyone can see where the money is coming from and going to. I was quite surprised when I found where money that has moved into this county came from: $91.39 million: Pinellas County $62.81 million: Broward County $49.20 million: Suffolk County, New York $43.84 million: Miami-Dade County $33.77 million: Palm Beach County Now some may not exactly believe this because this information comes from the IRS, yet from the years 1995 to 2010, this is exactly what happened. What would cause the many millions to come from one area in the Sunshine State to the Nature Coast? A great part of it is the coast, the other part is the many fairs, festival, antique stores, cafs and just the basics of what we have in the way of Old Florida on the east side. At the same time, this gem has a problem: We lack a true vision for the future of the east side of the county in a way that truly connects it to the region. U.S. 41, which connects Brooksville to Citrus and then allows for commerce to travel into the town of Hernando and then on to Marion County, needs to be four lanes and bypasses for Brooksville and Floral City are vital to that vision. I am suggesting to those involved in transportation to support the required studies for a bypass of both Brooksville and Floral City, to move them to the top of the list that is provided as a priority for the Department of Transportation. Doing both will allow for the studies to be expedited and the muchneeded bypasses to be able to become actual projects on the list, which will then allow for us to prioritize the needed spending to then build the bypasses. At the same time, we would only do the entirety of the project justice if we can continue to move to have U.S. 41 fully four-laned. This will allow for more people from the other counties to come and visit, to move and retire here as well as fall in love with Rails to Trails, our stores and our incredible restaurants and spend their money. This long-term vision will eventually grow the economy on the east side of the counties and allow for this area to have economic stability while still having the ability to keep our Old Florida history. Is there a guarantee to success? No, sadly there isnt, but this is what I am suggesting as a vision of the future of the county as far as the state roads, the Rails to Trails and the kind of economic future we want. We must continue our efforts on the Suncoast and other projects as well, but it is now time to provide balance and build the economy for the east side. In the end, we must remember that the beauty of the Nature Coast isnt just the coast. Thank you for your consideration in this matter.Jimmie T.

I dont believe in any favoritism. Its wrong, said Adams. At another point in the meeting, away from the recordings, Adams also got combative with Commissioner Joe Meek and told him he was next on the list of politicians to be attacked by Strange and his team. Adams also said that Sheriff Jeff Dawsy and state representative Jimmie T. Smith are on the list. Even if you dont like J.J. Kenney and what he did as a county commissioner or as the countys veteran service officer before that, is that really how we treat people? Scott Adams is going to use his political muscle and connections to stop an out-of-work guy from finding employment someplace else? I have maintained this criticism from the start and will continue: We should not permit any politician to bully people. Scott Adams actually has some good ideas about making government smaller. But he does not demonstrate the ability to work within our process of debating issues and treating people with respect. I do have confidence that the winners in the Tuesday primary Scott Carnahan and Ron Kitchen do not share the same bullying philosophy. While they might agree with Adams on issues, they will not resort to his abusive attacks on others. Voters get to make the final choice, and they decided to change things up on Tuesday. Thats how our system works. But voters did not send an endorsement that bullying is the way to get the job done. A side drama in the final weeks of the election sucked me into the fray for more than the Chroniclesposition on the candidates. I was criticized as a puppet of businessman Steve Lamb because I went on vacation with him earlier in the summer. I was featured in television commercials sponsored by Strange claiming I was a puppet. For the record, I have vacationed with Steve on probably a half-dozen occasions over the past 30 years weve been friends. We first met in the early 1980s, when we helped create the United Way of Citrus County, and weve been involved in a lot of other projects over the years. But guess what? We dont always agree on political issues and we never will. My wife doesnt even agree with me half the time, and thats the way it should be. I feel poorly that I put him in a position of getting publicly criticized because he had the nerve to support candidates he liked and hang around with me at the same time. This is also a good time to admit that I vacationed last year in Montana with a group of guys from Inverness. Some of the members of that group are key supporters of Scott Adams and were very close to his campaign. In both cases we talked about Citrus County politics, but not much. I go on vacation to get away from local politics and would prefer to talk about beer and whats for dinner. But as Strange and his group proved in the elections, instead of debating the actual issues, they will go after whatever they can to discredit individuals who disagree with them. Citrus County voters are being manipulated by a cynical group of political hacks. It is a distressing trend that will serve as a barrier to good and decent people getting involved in our local political process.Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle.

Section DSUNDAY, AUGUST 31, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Bruce WilliamsSMART MONEY DEAR BRUCE: My husband and I have allowed our daughter, who is a single mother of two (with a deadbeat husband), to live in a home we own without paying rent. There is still a mortgage on that home. Can it be transferred to her and placed in her name? She cannot qualify for the loan, but we want to give her a sense of ownership. As a side benefit, it might force her to take over payments. Is this legal? Reader DEAR READER: There is absolutely no reason for the home to be transferred to her and placed in her name. You mentioned you want to give her a sense of ownership. That may very well be, but no one is going to give her a mortgage for the very reasons you outlined. Hoping that as a side benefit it might force her to take over payments is a pie-in-the-sky dream. All she has to do is stop making the payments and eventually the bank will foreclose. Whether you want your daughter to continue to stay in the house is up to you, but there is no value in putting it in her name, unless you pay off the entire mortgage, which would not be to your advantage. DEAR BRUCE: I had my first car repossessed last year. I am 35 years old, recently lost my job and couldnt afford the payments of $400. How long will this stay on my credit report? Frank DEAR FRANK: Unfortunately, there is no set answer for this. The fact that you had your car repossessed is going to sit on your report for some time. The company that owns that liability will probably sell it to another company, and that company in turn will try to collect. Because the second company paid less for your debt, it can offer you a lower settlement payment and still come out ahead. As to how long this stays Transfer of home the wrong way to help daughter See MONEY/ Page D4 Associated PressNEW YORKIs it time to cash out of stocks? The market has nearly tripled in a little over five years, and with each record close, the temptation grows to take your winnings and flee. If only you had done that in the crashes that began in 2000 and 2008, you might be a lot richer. Plenty of experts think stocks are about to drop. But many others offer compelling arguments for the rally to continue for years. The bulls point to a strengthening U.S. economy that will help companies generate big profits. They also like that companies have plenty of money to keep buying back their own stock, a big force pushing up prices. The bears argue that, with the Standard and Poors 500 index closing above 2,000 on Tuesday, stocks already reflect years of future profit gains. And that forecast is suspect anyway given that so many economies around the world are stumbling. They also worry that U.S. interest rates could rise fast soon, one of the surest ways to kill a rally. The important thing to remember is that even the best investors, Warren Buffett included, find it nearly impossible to time the market to catch the lows and highs. The bull and bear cases in detail:THE BULL CASEA STRONGER ECONOMYFour of the past five bull markets have ended with investors selling in a recession, or bailing out because they anticipated one. The odds of a downturn anytime soon? Not very high, at least based on the latest economic reports and forecasts. The U.S. economy is expected to grow 1.5 percent this year, then 3.4 percent in 2015, according to Congressional Budget Office estimates released Wednesday. One reason is companies are hiring at the fastest pace in eight years. More people working means more paychecks and money to spend. And the good news can feed on itself. People who never lost jobs but were worried about layoffs might start spending more, too. Consumer confidence has hit its highest point in nearly seven years. All this makes it more likely that companies will keep posting higher earnings. This recovery will last several more years ... and earnings will grow, says Jim Paulsen, chief investment strategist at Wells Capital Management. There is a lot of room on the upside. Financial analysts expect earnings from companies in the S&P 500 to rise 8 percent this year, then 12 percent in 2015, according to S&P Capital IQ, a research firm. A double-digit gain would be the biggest in four years.LOW INTEREST RATESInterest rates are low, and thats been great for stocks. They help lower borrowing costs for consumers and businesses, which boosts profits. And they hold down interest payments on bonds, making stocks look more attractive to investors by comparison. Many investors expect the Federal Reserve to start raising the short-term rates it controls in the middle of next year. If the Fed keeps the hikes small, the stock market might shrug it off. Thats what happened in the last round of Fed hikes, in 2004. The S&P 500 gained 9 percent that year. Torsten Slok, chief international economist at Deutsche Bank Securities, isnt worried. He notes that the short-term rates that helped drag stocks down at the end of the last seven bull markets were all higher than 4 percent. With the Fed holding those rates near zero now, a record low, it could take many hikes and a bit of time for borrowing costs to rise enough to damage the economy and markets. We should expect the expansion to continue for several more years, Slok says.BUYBACK BOOMOne of the biggest forces in the stock rally so far is companies buying back their own shares. Companies in the S&P 500 have spent $1.9 trillion on buybacks since the bull market began in March 2009, according to Howard Silverblatt, a senior index analyst at S&P Dow Jones Indices, a research firm. By creating more demand for stocks, buybacks have kept prices rising even as others sell. Mutual funds, investment brokers, foreigners and pension funds have all been net sellers of stocks over most of the last five years, according to the Fed. Companies have pulled back sharply from their near-record buying in the first quarter, but their buybacks are still pushing up prices. And companies have plenty of money to continue buying. Those in the S&P 500 have more than $1.1 trillion in cash, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices. Says Silverblatt, Companies are buying themselves a tail wind.THE BEAR CASESTOCKS NOT CHEAPIts fine to forecast big profit gains well into the future, but what if prices fully reflect expected gains? Thats what many bears think. They cite a widely used gauge of stock value called the priceearnings ratio, or the price of a stock divided by its earnings per share. If a share costs $100 and financial analysts expect the company to earn $5 per share in the coming year, the P/E ratio is 20. The key here is that low P/Es are considered a better deal. Each dollar you spend on a stock buys you many dollars of future earnings. High P/Es buy you fewer future earnings. The S&P 500 now trades at 15 times what companies in the index are expected to earn over the next 12 months, according to FactSet, a data provider. That is slightly above the 10-year average of 14.1 times. Stocks are not cheap, said Aaron Jett, head of stock research at Bel Air Investment Advisors. But were not in bubble territory. The problem is, P/Es are often not reliable gauges of stock value. They are based on just one years earnings. Those can surge due to a pickup in the economy or collapse during a slowdown. Many experts believe a better P/E is a cyclically adjusted one, which is championed by Yale economist Robert Shiller. And that is showing that stocks are overpriced. The cyclically adjusted ratio averages annual earnings of companies over 10 years to remove Associated PressTrader Edward McCarthy works on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange on Aug. 21.

Associated PressKUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia Malaysia Airlines will cut 6,000 workers as part of a $1.9 billion overhaul announced Friday to revive its damaged brand after being hit by double passenger jet disasters. The staff reduction represents about 30 percent of its current workforce of 20,000. A search for a new CEO is underway but there is no move to change the airlines name, which some branding experts had said was necessary for a successful makeover. Khazanah Nasional, the state investment company that owns 69 percent of the airline, said the overhaul includes the establishment of a new company that will take over the existing Malaysia Airlines business and its reduced staff. The revamp and new investment in the carrier will cost about $1.9 billion. Analysts say the substantial staff cuts suggest the airline will reduce flights to Europe and China. The twin disasters and ongoing financial woes created a perfect storm for the restructuring to take place, said Khazanah Managing Director Azman Mokhtar. We need to have a fresh start. The airline will be removed from the Malaysian stock exchange and taken completely under the wing of the government. Khazanah, which previously announced that it plans to take 100 percent ownership, aims to restore Malaysia Airlines to profitability by the end of 2017 and then relist its shares on the stock exchange by the end of 2019. A substantial revamp has long been on the cards for Malaysia Airlines, which was struggling with financial problems even before it was hit by disaster this year. Investigators continue to scour the southern Indian Ocean for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 which veered far of course while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8 with 239 people on board. In July, 298 people were killed when Flight 17 was blasted out of the sky as it flew over an area of eastern Ukraine controlled by pro-Russian separatists.D2SUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEBUSINESS 2014 the best & the worst the best & the worstchronicleonline.com/tattoo tattoo art by tattoo art byWIN $250 credit toward tattoo correction or a new tattoo plus other cool prizesWIN $250 credit toward tattoo correction or a new tattoo plus other cool prizes New boarding facility offers creature comfortsCome see the all-new Stay & Play Pet Getaway boarding facility located at 1305 E.

Each month hospital associates are chosen in a process that involves nominations and voting by their peers, patients, patient families, and physicians. This months Oak Hill Hospital Stars are: Peggy OReilly-Berry, RN/C, case manager Peggy joined Oak Hill Hospitals second floor in December 2011. She is a case manager and views her job as the person who intervenes for patient advocacy for nurses, managers, and the discharge plan. She and her husband, Kevin Berry, live in Spring Hill with their two furry children Anjer Noel, 7, and Princess, 10. Peggys nomination came from a colleague who praised her caring attitude toward patient care which she regards as exceptional. As Peggy states, my clients are No. 1 priority. Peggy realizes that patients can be frightened, scared, and definitely need assistance. She says she loves being a case manager, but praises the staff that she works with on the second floor, in particular the other case managers. I am proud to work with them. Victoria Wetherbee, pre-op nurse Victorias nomination came from a patient who had what some might regard as minor surgery but it was not minor to her. Although it was a small procedure I was very apprehensive about undergoing general anesthesia, I had even called the hospital a few times prior to the day to ask questions about it. I also did my own online research but was still left feeling worried. Vicki was calming and paid me great attention. I appreciate the level of interest. I am glad that I had the anesthetist and Vicki two great people on my team.Lorenzo appointed to Seven Rivers staffOn July 15, Alberto P.

BUSINESS DIGEST Special to the Chronicle Peggy OReilly-Berry Victoria Wetherbee Alberto Lorenzo Associated PressWASHINGTON The Environmental Protection Agencys staff has concluded the government needs to tighten smog rules by up to 20 percent. In its final recommendation in a 597-page report, the agency staff agrees with EPAs outside scientific advisers that the 6year-old standard for how much smog is allowed needs to be stricter, saying it will save a significant number of lives and cut hospital visits. An earlier version of the report came to a similar conclusion. Industry representatives criticized the recommendation as way too costly, while environmental activists hailed it as a public health measure. Since 2008, the standard has allowed up to 75 parts of ozone per billion parts of air. The staff report recommends between 60 and 70 parts per billion. The report says it will provide more health protection for higher risk populations, including the elderly, very young, outdoor workers and people with asthma and lung disease. And it estimated that there are tens of millions, if not more than 100 million people, in that at-risk category. When the agency tried to make a similar rule a few years ago, it estimated it would cost up to $90 billion a year, making it one of the most expensive environmental regulations ever proposed. After industry and Republicans in Congress criticized it, President Barack Obama withdrew it in 2011. A 2011 EPA study looked at the history of air pollution regulations and found that the benefit of clean air in better health and reduced deaths vastly exceeds the costs of air pollution rules going back to 1990. It said that by the year 2020, overall costs of air pollution rules would be $65 billion a year, while savings would be worth almost $2 trillion a year. Federal law requires that air quality rules be updated every five years. A federal judge ordered the EPA to have a new rule by December after environmental groups sued to get the government to tighten existing rules. EPA staff says agency needs to be tough on smog Malaysia Airlines to cut 6,000 staff in overhaul Associated PressDETROIT U.S. investors should soon be able to buy stock in Chrysler for the first time in seven years. Italys Fiat and Chrysler are merging to form Fiat Chrysler Automobile. Fiat said in a statement Friday that an ongoing tally of investors suggests there is not enough opposition to derail the deal. Earlier this month, Fiat shareholders approved combining the companies. But Italian law gives dissenters the right to cash out. Fiat has said that if investors offered more than $650 million in shares, the merger would be off. The combined company would move its tax headquarters to London and list its shares on the New York Stock Exchange. The merger could be completed by mid-October. Fiat SpA will announce the final tally by Sept. 4. So far the maximum number of shares to be cashed is below the cap, the automaker said. Shares of Chrysler havent been publicly traded since 2007 when it was still combined with German automaker Daimler. Fiat-Chrysler stock set for return to market

distortions from surges and drops. It is currently 26. Thats much lower that it was during the late 1990s dot-com bubble when the ratio peaked at 44. But its still very high. Since the end of World War II, and the average is 18.3. Go back a century, and the average is 16. Make no mistake this is an equity bubble, and a highly advanced one, wrote economist and fund manager John Hussman last month in one of his weekly commentaries to investors.THOSE COMING RATE HIKESThe Fed may be able to raise rates slowly without damaging the economy and stock markets. But its record isnt entirely reassuring. Three of the past five bull markets ended after the Fed increased rates. If the central bank finds itself scrambling to contain inflation and has to raise rates quickly and sharply, stocks could fall 20 percent, the official threshold for the beginning of a bear market. Inflation doesnt appear to be a problem right now. The consumer price index is up 2 percent in the past 12 months, roughly equivalent to the Feds target. But that could change fast if the economy heats up.STRUGGLING ECONOMIES ABROADU.S. companies rely more than ever on foreign economies remaining healthy. Unfortunately, many of those economies are stumbling. The 18 countries that share the euro, a region that accounts for nearly a fifth of global output, didnt grow at all in the last quarter. China, the worlds second-largest economy, is slowing rapidly. And Japan, the third largest, shrank 7 percent compared with a year earlier. Most economists expect the U.S. to shrug off the troubles abroad and for growth to pick up. But not everyone. David Levy, an economist who oversees the newsletter The Levy Forecast, predicted the last U.S. recession with uncanny precision. He says another one is coming next year. The cause: Downturns elsewhere, not domestic trouble. Even if hes wrong and the U.S. continues to grow, slowing economies overseas will make it harder for companies to post higher profits. Companies in the S&P 500 generate nearly half their sales abroad.D4SUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEBUSINESS DONT WALL YOUR BUSINESS OFF FROM YOUR CUSTOMERSFor more information on how to keep your business in front of your customers, call 352-563-5592. www.aaaroofingflorida.com LIC./INS.

Its too difficult to get the weeks we want. V.R. DEAR V.R.: No matter where you live, getting out from under a timeshare is extremely difficult. You say its not paid for, therefore, you still have payments to make, and the timeshare company is going to do everything it can to hold you to that. If you send the company a letter saying you are turning the balance of the mortgage over to it, it may accept that, and that would be the end of it. But the company could write back and say thats not satisfactory. Then you may have to try legal action, but even that is weak. Youll find that the contract is very difficult to break. You can try giving it to charity. Unfortunately, timeshares are, by and large, lousy propositions for the buyer. DEAR BRUCE: My husband and I are both over 65. He suggested that since we are exempt from paying taxes under $65,000, we should request that instead of the state taking taxes out of our pension checks, we should put the money into a savings account. He also suggested that we might want to file taxes separately because one might have more liability than the other. What is your opinion? W.Y. DEAR W.Y.: I dont understand why you are necessarily exempt from paying taxes under $65,000, but I will accept that for the moment. Take whatever amount that is and invest it however you choose, but a savings account is not the place. It would be better in a small stock account, invested in one or two select companies. I doubt if filing taxes separately would be to your advantage. In almost every instance, there is more liability and more taxes to pay. Of course, you will want to explore this with a tax preparer first.Send questions to bruce@brucewilliams.com. Questions of general interest will be answered in future columns.

BUY OR SELLContinued from Page D1 MONEYContinued from Page D1 Associated PressNEW YORK A developer and city officials say some changes have been negotiated in a plan for a so-called poor door for less-affluent residents of a Manhattan skyscraper. People who live in the pricey condos will still enter through the front lobby. But the Wall Street Journalreported residents of the buildings affordable portion will now get shared access to a courtyard and a roof deck facing the Hudson River. Executives from developer Larry Silversteins company and its partner said theyll position that entrance to face a planned 4-acre public park. It also will feature custom wood and a lobby with a glass facade. City officials call the project a model for integrating affordable and market-rate apartments. But theyre also hoping for changes in the law to forbid separate entrances. Poor door plan gets tweaks

Gypsys Two Cents: Ahh, a simple life eat, sleep, play. Play requires a toy collection, and I hide them everywhere. I hear squeak in the middle of the night and know my blind dad found one. Customers find one, recognize its value and quickly ask, is this for sale? I respond, sorry, not for sale, but humans only hear a growl.Isuppose it can be dog toys, but collecting can be addictive. So many interests and options. Art, jewelry, Lionel trains, Depression glass, rock n roll, pottery the list goes on and on. No matter what your interest, collecting can be loads of fun. We all go places mentally that are not a very good use of our time. Our desire to acquire takes time and money, though for many its timeormoney. Both can be difficult to manage. Time spent can be searching or researching, driving, or that wasteful state of day dreaming. If totaled up, I suspect the time spent adding to a collection would surprise us all. Typically, collectors will pay more for items than dealers at shops, auctions or markets. When time and money is available, the collector is like a dog with a bone. Satisfying that desire always brings a smile. One way to control the desire is to create a list. Mental lists are quickly and easily modified by giving in to impulse buying. Written lists and the discipline to stick with them can assist with the many temptations. Of course, you could always leave the list in your pocket. I personally have collected very little through the years: 150 vintage tennis racquets, Bev Doolittle art, a few old radios and I love games in tennis. Do potato chips and ice cream count? This months story by Cindy DeVries: Collecting is a joy, but when ones done with a collection, it doesnt mean you have to stop. One just moves on to something new. Case in point: One year for Christmas, my sister-in-law asked the family for our favorite recipes, but they had to be handwritten. One can find recipes in books, magazines and of course the internet, but handwritten recipes are a dying art form, especially when written in cursive. I have since gone through Grandmas and Moms recipes and pulled out the handwritten ones, and now Im always on the lookout for handwritten recipes. But you see, its not my fault its my sister-in-laws!Steve Barnes owns and, along with his shop dog Gypsy, operates Olde Inverness Antiques.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014E15 E2SUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OUR MISSION To be the worldwide real estate leader, achieving our goal by helping others achieve theirs.

leaves, pairs of pollen sacs are pulled free and are carried to the anther slits of a different flower to ensure pollination. On all Milkweeds, the characteristic small, fivepetal flowers reflex downward surrounding a central waxy corona. The Australian/Asian Hoya plants have similar flowers. Tropical Milkweed, Asclepias curassavica,from South America, zones 9-12, is commonly called Bloodflower. It is readily available in local nursery outlets. This perennial has deep tuberous roots and grows, about 3 feet tall and is evergreen in South Florida. It dies to the ground in central Floridas cooler winters. Loose clusters of a few flowers are usually red and orange, although there is a yellow, weaker selected variety. There are at least 20 species of Asclepias native to Florida, but few are commercially available. The most widespread Milkweed in the United States is A. tuberosacommonly named Butterfly Milkweed, which grows in zones 4-10. It grows naturally in about 40 lower states but not in the Pacific Northwest or the Canadian maritime provinces. Its northern limit is about latitude 48. The plant grows 2 to 3 feet tall from a deep, underground rhizome. It is prevalent in dry sandhills, woodland edges, roadsides and any well-drained, fullsun site. It does not tolerate root disturbance, wet soils or excessive irrigation. Large clusters of bright orange flowers top sturdy stems that range from 6 to 12 inches high in younger plants to 36-inch stems in an older specimen. This long-lived perennial is the host plant for Monarch Butterfly caterpillars. Adult Monarch females lay eggs the size of a pinhead on the alternate, lance-shaped leaves. Tiny caterpillars hatch after three or four days and munch the milkweed leaves for about two weeks before going into a chrysalis, where they change into adults. Milkweed seedpods are elongated, paper-thin pods called follicles. When mature, they dry and split open to reveal rows of overlapping black seeds attached to silky floss called pappus. The seeds are wafted away on the filament-like parachutes to germinate and grow far from the parent plant. The second most common Milkweed is A. syriaca,growing naturally in about 39 states and six provinces, but not in Florida, the southwestern states, or Idaho and Washington. Flowers are clustered in a round globe atop 3-foot tall stems. Heat zone 10 in Florida is too hot for this species to survive. Milkweed is a colorful and useful plant in wildflower meadows and butterfly gardens throughout Florida. Companion plants include Black-eyed Susan, Rudbeckia; Purple Coneflower, Echinacea; Blazingstar, Liatris; and the evergreen flowering vines Carolina jessamine,Gelsemium sempervirensand Coral Honeysuckle,Lonicera sempervirens.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant.

DEAN FOSDICK/Associated PressA bumble bee searching for nectar from a rosemary plant near Langley, Wash. Honeybees are irreplaceable as pollinators,but you can somewhat offset their loss by attracting beetles, butterflies and moths, dragonflies, feral bees, bumblebees and wasps, among others. DEANFOSDICK Associated PressThe dramatic loss of honeybees to changing land use, viruses and pesticides is alarming, and they are irreplaceable as pollinators. But you can somewhat offset their loss by attracting alternative pollinators, such as beetles, butterflies and moths, dragonflies, feral bees, wasps and flower flies. Attracting these beneficial insects requires a long-term landscaping commitment, however. They need a wide variety of forage plants along with protected nesting sites to thrive. The plant community and the bee community are intimately related, said David Gordon, an associate professor of entomology at Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas. Habitat is everything to pollinators. Start by observing, protecting and enhancing whats already on your property. Know whats out there in the way of beneficial insects and forage plants, Gordon said. If you have some bees present, you can generally increase their numbers by providing them the resources they need to proliferate. The smaller the size of your operation, the more likely that such a strategy will be successful and in a shorter time, he said. Eric Mader, assistant director of The Xerces Societys pollinator program and lead author of its new guide, Farming With Native Beneficial Insects (Storey Publishing), says, Honeybees always will be needed for almonds and larger, industrial-size agriculture crops. Theyll always be part of the equation. But for many crops native to the United States, like blueberries and pumpkins, that evolved prior to the introduction of (European) honeybees, native bees do a perfectly adequate job pollinating these plants, he said. Syrphid flies are a good honeybee alternative. These so-called flower flies superficially resemble bees, Mader said. Theyre predatory insects as larvae, primarily feeding on aphids. Then they become important pollinators as adults. Munn hits new high for 2014ERA American Realty & Investments is proud to announce the latest production level achieved by one of its agents.

Not only should we watch our use of nitrates and pesticides like everyone else, but we also have charge of a small stretch of waterfront that needs special attention. Currently, the planned development of Hunter Springs Park involves a living shoreline which, with property owners help, will extend from the park into Kings Bay. For everyone on the water, your charge is to keep as much undeveloped as possible. A living shoreline leaves between 10 and 30 feet undeveloped. No mowing, no fertilizing, no nitrates, and no dumping of grass clippings. This gives wildlife a place to flourish. This doesnt mean that those who dwell on the shoreline cant pull up a noxious weed or two. My particular enemy is water hemlock, a weed that is poisonous to most creatures and that can crowd out more beneficial growth, said one member of the Waterfront Advisory Board. So those of you who live on the water, it all boils down to this: let the good stuff grow, and weed out the bad by hand and stay away from chemicals of any kind. Special to the ChronicleIf you live on the water, do your part by leaving part of your shoreline undeveloped, to promote a living shoreline. The Waterfront Advisory Board would like to hear what you have done to protect our springs, our rivers, our bays, and our water supply. Please send any suggestions you may have to lketchum@crystal riverfl.org, so that we can publish them in the monthly Do One Thing article in Homefront. Do one thing: Create a living shoreline

Associated PressA containerpondput together using a planter on a patio in San Francisco. The next most important are solitary wasps, he said. These are docile, gentle animals. They can be very small. Crop-pollinating native bees and other beneficial insects have three basic habitat needs, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture: Plant variety. Provide forage plants with overlapping blooming times so that flowers are available to provide pollen and nectar throughout the insects flight season, or from early spring until late fall. Native bees and other pollinators come in many sizes, so it also is important to provide flowers of various sizes, shapes and colors, the USDA said in a fact sheet. Nesting sites. Many bees nest underground, in tree cavities or snags often clumps of leaves, branches and fallen grass. That makes them vulnerable to deep soil tillage or tree removal, the agency said. Protection from indiscriminate pesticide use. Insecticides are primarily broad-spectrum and are therefore deadly to bees. Herbicide use also can remove many of the flowers that bees need for food, the USDA said. The goal should not be to eliminate your use of honeybees but to diversify and reduce your dependence upon them, Gordon said.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014E5 E12SUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE BRING YOUR FISHING POLE!

It was brimming with elegant plants, fish and its own ecosystem. So they built not one but two new ponds, this time city-style: one for their balcony overlooking San Francisco and the other for their leafy entryway. If you have limited space or want an interesting water feature ... patio or container ponds are an easy option, and the only limits are your creativity, said Marc Hachadourian, Director of the Nolan Greenhouses for Living Collections at the New York Botanical Garden. The Gages assembled their container ponds using large planters, which they made water-tight by caulking any drainage holes. Then they added gravel and a few larger rocks, and filled the container with water. They added an electric a bubbler and filter, to make the fish happy. Next came a few floating aquatic plants, which they harvested from a pond in the area, and finally a variety of rescue fish from a pet store. We have a really small space and Ann said, wouldnt it be cool to have a pond here? It couldnt have been easier, said Glen Gage. Its way less work to maintain than a big aquarium no cleaning the tank or syphoning out the dirty water and theres a relaxing zen quality to the gently bubbling water and swimming fish. Maintenance involves only refilling the container to replace water lost to evaporation. Although some people put mosquito-killing tablets in the water, experts say a few small fish are sufficient to take care of insect larvae. You can go crazy with really fancy fish, but our local pet store is super nice and they just let us reach in for feeder fish and choose some Even a small patio can have a fish pond Clever use of containers can provide aquatic habitat for finned friends See PONDS / Page E7

For example, while army eagles look to the left, those on German Navy cap badges look the other way. So there is no easy test for this. Because it looks to the right, we can probably rule out military vehicles. It would not have graced the entrance to a building, because those would have had a painted emblem on an enamel sign, or in the case of an important office, something carved in stone. So I am sorry to leave you with a mystery. In terms of its value, because of its small size I am going to say around $300. I hope this helps a bit. G., Internet Dear G.: My personal thanks for your time and expertise, you are a gentleman and a scholar. Dear John: My uncle was in the Army in World War II. After the war, he was stationed in Japan and sent back a set of china. I only have this one photo of a creamer. I wonder if there is any interest in this type of china. M.R., Internet Dear M.R.: You have Geisha Girl porcelain. It was made in Japan in large quantities for export to the United States, England, and other countries during the early to mid-20th century. It typically depicted young women wearing kimonos in everyday scenes of life. Collectors are generally interested in the porcelain figurines and have very little interest in the dinnerware. So when dinnerware sets come up for sale, prices are very low. Dear John: Here is a photograph of a bronze statue. It is 16 inches tall. There is a signature on the base of W. Boehm. We purchased the bronze at an auction a few years ago. The auctioneer was not familiar with it and said it came out of a private collection in Miami. What can you tell me about it? I paid $250 for it and just after the auction, a dealer offered me $500 for it. He had arrived too late and said he was willing to pay that price. Should I have sold it? What do you think? Any information will be appreciated. R.M., Internet Dear R.M.: You have a lovely bronze bust likely depicting one of the beauties of the era. I am not sure who she is. The style of the bronze is Art Nouveau, created by the French during the late 19th century. The style spread throughout Europe, England, and America. The height of the period was 1890 to 1910. The Art Nouveau style influenced all the decorative arts, paintings, and furniture. Art Nouveau has been a category of collecting for decades. I was not able to find any information about the signer of your bronze. I think the piece is a reproduction made within the last fifty years. Potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac also said Thursday that the average for a 15year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, rose to 3.25 percent from 3.23 percent. At its 52-week low of 4.10 percent, the rate on a 30-year mortgage is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Federal Reserve has been trimming its monthly bond purchases, which are intended to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The purchases are set to end in October. The low rates appear to have boosted U.S. home sales. Data released Thursday showed that more Americans signed contracts to buy homes in July. The National Association of Realtors said its seasonally adjusted pending home sales index rose 3.3 percent to 105.9 last month. Still, the index remains 2.1 percent below its level a year ago. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was 0.5 point, unchanged from last week. The fee for a 15-year mortgage remained at 0.6 point. The average rate on a five-year adjustable-rate mortgage rose to 2.97 percent from 2.95 percent. The fee stayed at 0.5 point. For a one-year ARM, the average rate edged up to 2.39 percent from 2.38 percent. The fee was stable at 0.5 point. Nazi emblem likely not military, but origin uncertain Dear readers: The following information comes from a specialist in Nazi memorabilia, Professor Giles, whom I wish to thank for the help. The original question was about a metal Nazi eagle emblem. Dear John: I am afraid I cannot come up with a definitive identification of this metal eagle-and-swastika emblem, which the owner thought, I believe, might have come from an automobile. I am not sure that that is the case. A Nazi Party official would have had a pennant flying rather than something like this. The size you give would make it approximately 23 by 19 centimeters, which is smaller than other examples I have seen. Most commonly, these emblems were used on the sides of railroad cars, and several of those have sold recently at auction in Germany. In 2007, one with a size of 90 by 40 centimeters sold for 1,100 euros, or about $1,485 at the then-exchange rate, and another sized 69 by 35 centimenters sold for 1,300 euros, or about $1,755. Last month, a similar one sized 60 by 34 centimeters sold for 750 euros about $1,185. However, it is important to note that the detail in the design of each of those is much finer and sharper than the somewhat crude casting of the emblem in your photograph. Then there is the question of what sort of eagle it is. The rule of thumb often quoted is that a state or government eagle looks to the left, while a Nazi Party eagle looks to the right. Yours looks to the right. But this does not always hold true. John SikorskiSIKORSKIS ATTIC Inside...

Paula Fuhst 352-613-7553 Associated PressA containerpond put together using a planter, floating aquatic plants and a mix of goldfish on a patio in San Francisco. Thepondcontains a bubbler, a filter, and an Asian ceramic ball as a decorative element. with pretty markings that make them look unique. Its like going to the pound. You feel like youve done something really good. Theyre basically just goldfish and are pretty hardy, Gage said. Although the patio ponds can look and feel like miniature koi ponds, koi experts strongly suggest goldfish as the better choice. Unlike koi, which grow large and need plenty of oxygen and moving water to thrive, goldfish and some other smaller fish are hardier and better suited to patio ponds. Putting a koi in a little container pond would be like trying to raise a German Shepherd in a box, said Don Chandler, chairman of Koi USA, based in Costa Mesa, California. The smallest possible koi pond would be a 600or 800-gallon pond. Thats more than most people are ready for on their patio. The International Water Garden Society is a good resource when deciding on varieties of aquatic plants. Hachadourian recommends miniature water lilies like dauben, which has a light blue flower and tolerates shadier conditions. Plants like water lettuce and water hyacinth float on the surface, control algae and help filter the water. Aquatic grasses, irises and tarrow are also good choices, he said. When deciding where to put a patio pond, first consider how much weight your floor or terrace can handle. Even the lightest container is heavy when filled with water, which weighs just over 8 pounds per gallon. Its not what youd want on a rickety porch, Hachadourian said. Ponds also need a good amount of light and work best outdoors. Indoors, they would work in a greenhouse-type area; otherwise they generally require additional lighting. Although container ponds work year-round in warmer climates, they are more challenging where winters are harsher. Hachadourian said most container ponds, or at least the fish residing in them, need to be moved to a warmer area in winter. A lot of people treat patio ponds a bit like annuals and restart their ponds every spring. They just transfer the fish to an indoor aquarium in winter and drain the container pond. In the spring, fast growing aquatic plants are installed, the fish are put back in the pond, and youre all set for the warmer part of the year, he said.

If the dog isnt in Tanners room, shes at the front window watching for him. Side effects for anxious dogs dont stop at whimpering. Some dogs refuse to eat when their owners are gone, experts say. There will be an exuberant greeting when you do come home, one that can last several minutes and be completely crazy, then the dog will run to the food bowl, Dodman said. Nearly half the anxious dogs have noise phobias, so if a storm hits while they are in an empty house, they can panic. A really insecure dog might become clingy and follow their owners around. Besides recommended independence training, there are some things owners can do to ease their dogs blues. Dodman suggests: Make your departure a happy time with toys and treats. Create a place in the house where the dog feels safe. Start the new routine before school begins. Dont indulge behavior with baby talk or sympathy. See a vet if it doesnt improve. To cope with separation, firstgrader Harry Williams of Kanab, Utah, takes the family dogs, Flora and Gandalf, to the bus stop each morning to get a bit more time with them. He is sad to leave them and hugs them like 10 times before he gets on the bus. Usually Flora whines when the bus pulls away, mom Jill Williams said. But the dogs mostly sleep while the youngster is at school. Honestly, they dont really seem fazed by it other than when Harry gets on and off the school bus, Williams said. For those whose dogs have more serious problems, other more expensive options include pet sitters, dog walkers and doggy day camp. For the young Grimmett sisters in Edmond, Oklahoma, their dogs, an English setter and a Yorkshire terrier, got plenty of attention and outdoor playtime over the summer, but the dogs dont throw a fit when 10year-old Willow and 5-year-old Coral go to school, which started this month. The dogs welcome the girls home with unconditional love and affection and no criticism, said mom, Dr. Danel Grimmett of the Sunset Veterinarian Clinic. Yes, they miss their girls, but they seem to understand she said. And all the time away during the day disappears as soon as the girls return.

More than 100 perennial Milkweed species in the Asclepias genus originated in the Americas. Similar African plants with inflated prickly seed pods were recently reclassified into the Physocarpus genus. Acslepias was the mythical Greek god of healing. Parts of some milkweeds have been used in folk medicines. Milkweeds contain the chemical oleandrin, a cardiac glycoside. The sap is a milky, acrid latex containing alkaloids which may irritate the skin in some people. Monarch butterfly caterpillars ingest the toxins, making them distasteful to birds and other predators. Nectar in Milkweed flowers attracts pollinators bees, wasps, butterflies, moths and hummingbirds. Milkweed pollen is not a single grain or tetrad, but grouped in complex sacs called pollinia. The feet or mouthparts of pollinators become stuck in any of the 5 slits between the flower anthers. The pollinia thus mechanically attach to the pollinator.

Pooches used to months of constant playtime can get upset when their best buddies disappear with the dog days of summer. Many dogs whine and wait eagerly at the front door but eventually adjust to the absence of their young owners when they are in class. But millions of dogs can feel abandoned, sad and unable to cope and they look for ways to lash out. Many of the nations 80 million dogs have separation anxiety, Dr. Nick Dodman, of Tufts Universitys Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in Massachusetts, said citing studies. Dogs with separation anxiety will bark, howl or whine; destroy something, leaving behind scratched doors, damaged blinds or torn curtains; or have accidents, Dodman said. Dianne Larson of Santa Clarita, California, has seen it firsthand. School started two weeks ago, and year-old Ruby, a black Lab, still searches for Larsons son Tanner, 14, when hes gone. She stays in his room. If his door is closed, she will whine to get in, Dogs can get lonely when kids head back after summer See DOGS/ Page E10Tanner Larson with his dog Ruby. School has been in session for two weeks, but Rubys still searches for Tanner when hes gone.DIANNE LARSON/ Associated Press Perennial Milkweed and Butterfly Milkweed Special to the ChronicleThe most widespread Milkweed in the United States is A. tuberosa commonly named Butterfly Milkweed. The plant grows 2 to 3 feet tall from a deep, underground rhizome. Large clusters of bright orange flowers top sturdy stems that range from 6 to 12 inches high in younger plants to 36-inch stems in an older specimen. This long-lived perennial is the host plant for Monarch Butterfly caterpillars. Jane WeberJANES GARDEN See JANE/ Page E14

Pooches used to months of constant playtime can get upset when their best buddies disappear with the dog days of summer. Many dogs whine and wait eagerly at the front door but eventually adjust to the absence of their young owners when they are in class. But millions of dogs can feel abandoned, sad and unable to cope and they look for ways to lash out. Many of the nations 80 million dogs have separation anxiety, Dr. Nick Dodman, of Tufts Universitys Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in Massachusetts, said citing studies. Dogs with separation anxiety will bark, howl or whine; destroy something, leaving behind scratched doors, damaged blinds or torn curtains; or have accidents, Dodman said. Dianne Larson of Santa Clarita, California, has seen it firsthand. School started two weeks ago, and year-old Ruby, a black Lab, still searches for Larsons son Tanner, 14, when hes gone. She stays in his room. If his door is closed, she will whine to get in, Dogs can get lonely when kids head back after summer See DOGS/ Page E10Tanner Larson with his dog Ruby. School has been in session for two weeks, but Rubys still searches for Tanner when hes gone.DIANNE LARSON/ Associated Press Perennial Milkweed and Butterfly Milkweed Special to the ChronicleThe most widespread Milkweed in the United States is A. tuberosa commonly named Butterfly Milkweed. The plant grows 2 to 3 feet tall from a deep, underground rhizome. Large clusters of bright orange flowers top sturdy stems that range from 6 to 12 inches high in younger plants to 36-inch stems in an older specimen. This long-lived perennial is the host plant for Monarch Butterfly caterpillars. Jane WeberJANES GARDEN See JANE/ Page E14

Paula Fuhst 352-613-7553 Associated PressA containerpond put together using a planter, floating aquatic plants and a mix of goldfish on a patio in San Francisco. Thepondcontains a bubbler, a filter, and an Asian ceramic ball as a decorative element. with pretty markings that make them look unique. Its like going to the pound. You feel like youve done something really good. Theyre basically just goldfish and are pretty hardy, Gage said. Although the patio ponds can look and feel like miniature koi ponds, koi experts strongly suggest goldfish as the better choice. Unlike koi, which grow large and need plenty of oxygen and moving water to thrive, goldfish and some other smaller fish are hardier and better suited to patio ponds. Putting a koi in a little container pond would be like trying to raise a German Shepherd in a box, said Don Chandler, chairman of Koi USA, based in Costa Mesa, California. The smallest possible koi pond would be a 600or 800-gallon pond. Thats more than most people are ready for on their patio. The International Water Garden Society is a good resource when deciding on varieties of aquatic plants. Hachadourian recommends miniature water lilies like dauben, which has a light blue flower and tolerates shadier conditions. Plants like water lettuce and water hyacinth float on the surface, control algae and help filter the water. Aquatic grasses, irises and tarrow are also good choices, he said. When deciding where to put a patio pond, first consider how much weight your floor or terrace can handle. Even the lightest container is heavy when filled with water, which weighs just over 8 pounds per gallon. Its not what youd want on a rickety porch, Hachadourian said. Ponds also need a good amount of light and work best outdoors. Indoors, they would work in a greenhouse-type area; otherwise they generally require additional lighting. Although container ponds work year-round in warmer climates, they are more challenging where winters are harsher. Hachadourian said most container ponds, or at least the fish residing in them, need to be moved to a warmer area in winter. A lot of people treat patio ponds a bit like annuals and restart their ponds every spring. They just transfer the fish to an indoor aquarium in winter and drain the container pond. In the spring, fast growing aquatic plants are installed, the fish are put back in the pond, and youre all set for the warmer part of the year, he said.

If the dog isnt in Tanners room, shes at the front window watching for him. Side effects for anxious dogs dont stop at whimpering. Some dogs refuse to eat when their owners are gone, experts say. There will be an exuberant greeting when you do come home, one that can last several minutes and be completely crazy, then the dog will run to the food bowl, Dodman said. Nearly half the anxious dogs have noise phobias, so if a storm hits while they are in an empty house, they can panic. A really insecure dog might become clingy and follow their owners around. Besides recommended independence training, there are some things owners can do to ease their dogs blues. Dodman suggests: Make your departure a happy time with toys and treats. Create a place in the house where the dog feels safe. Start the new routine before school begins. Dont indulge behavior with baby talk or sympathy. See a vet if it doesnt improve. To cope with separation, firstgrader Harry Williams of Kanab, Utah, takes the family dogs, Flora and Gandalf, to the bus stop each morning to get a bit more time with them. He is sad to leave them and hugs them like 10 times before he gets on the bus. Usually Flora whines when the bus pulls away, mom Jill Williams said. But the dogs mostly sleep while the youngster is at school. Honestly, they dont really seem fazed by it other than when Harry gets on and off the school bus, Williams said. For those whose dogs have more serious problems, other more expensive options include pet sitters, dog walkers and doggy day camp. For the young Grimmett sisters in Edmond, Oklahoma, their dogs, an English setter and a Yorkshire terrier, got plenty of attention and outdoor playtime over the summer, but the dogs dont throw a fit when 10year-old Willow and 5-year-old Coral go to school, which started this month. The dogs welcome the girls home with unconditional love and affection and no criticism, said mom, Dr. Danel Grimmett of the Sunset Veterinarian Clinic. Yes, they miss their girls, but they seem to understand she said. And all the time away during the day disappears as soon as the girls return.

For example, while army eagles look to the left, those on German Navy cap badges look the other way. So there is no easy test for this. Because it looks to the right, we can probably rule out military vehicles. It would not have graced the entrance to a building, because those would have had a painted emblem on an enamel sign, or in the case of an important office, something carved in stone. So I am sorry to leave you with a mystery. In terms of its value, because of its small size I am going to say around $300. I hope this helps a bit. G., Internet Dear G.: My personal thanks for your time and expertise, you are a gentleman and a scholar. Dear John: My uncle was in the Army in World War II. After the war, he was stationed in Japan and sent back a set of china. I only have this one photo of a creamer. I wonder if there is any interest in this type of china. M.R., Internet Dear M.R.: You have Geisha Girl porcelain. It was made in Japan in large quantities for export to the United States, England, and other countries during the early to mid-20th century. It typically depicted young women wearing kimonos in everyday scenes of life. Collectors are generally interested in the porcelain figurines and have very little interest in the dinnerware. So when dinnerware sets come up for sale, prices are very low. Dear John: Here is a photograph of a bronze statue. It is 16 inches tall. There is a signature on the base of W. Boehm. We purchased the bronze at an auction a few years ago. The auctioneer was not familiar with it and said it came out of a private collection in Miami. What can you tell me about it? I paid $250 for it and just after the auction, a dealer offered me $500 for it. He had arrived too late and said he was willing to pay that price. Should I have sold it? What do you think? Any information will be appreciated. R.M., Internet Dear R.M.: You have a lovely bronze bust likely depicting one of the beauties of the era. I am not sure who she is. The style of the bronze is Art Nouveau, created by the French during the late 19th century. The style spread throughout Europe, England, and America. The height of the period was 1890 to 1910. The Art Nouveau style influenced all the decorative arts, paintings, and furniture. Art Nouveau has been a category of collecting for decades. I was not able to find any information about the signer of your bronze. I think the piece is a reproduction made within the last fifty years. Potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can. One way or the other, I think you paid a fair price; the dealer may have thought it was an original. John Sikorski has been a professional in the antiques business for 30 years.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac also said Thursday that the average for a 15year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, rose to 3.25 percent from 3.23 percent. At its 52-week low of 4.10 percent, the rate on a 30-year mortgage is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Federal Reserve has been trimming its monthly bond purchases, which are intended to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The purchases are set to end in October. The low rates appear to have boosted U.S. home sales. Data released Thursday showed that more Americans signed contracts to buy homes in July. The National Association of Realtors said its seasonally adjusted pending home sales index rose 3.3 percent to 105.9 last month. Still, the index remains 2.1 percent below its level a year ago. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was 0.5 point, unchanged from last week. The fee for a 15-year mortgage remained at 0.6 point. The average rate on a five-year adjustable-rate mortgage rose to 2.97 percent from 2.95 percent. The fee stayed at 0.5 point. For a one-year ARM, the average rate edged up to 2.39 percent from 2.38 percent. The fee was stable at 0.5 point. Nazi emblem likely not military, but origin uncertain Dear readers: The following information comes from a specialist in Nazi memorabilia, Professor Giles, whom I wish to thank for the help. The original question was about a metal Nazi eagle emblem. Dear John: I am afraid I cannot come up with a definitive identification of this metal eagle-and-swastika emblem, which the owner thought, I believe, might have come from an automobile. I am not sure that that is the case. A Nazi Party official would have had a pennant flying rather than something like this. The size you give would make it approximately 23 by 19 centimeters, which is smaller than other examples I have seen. Most commonly, these emblems were used on the sides of railroad cars, and several of those have sold recently at auction in Germany. In 2007, one with a size of 90 by 40 centimeters sold for 1,100 euros, or about $1,485 at the then-exchange rate, and another sized 69 by 35 centimenters sold for 1,300 euros, or about $1,755. Last month, a similar one sized 60 by 34 centimeters sold for 750 euros about $1,185. However, it is important to note that the detail in the design of each of those is much finer and sharper than the somewhat crude casting of the emblem in your photograph. Then there is the question of what sort of eagle it is. The rule of thumb often quoted is that a state or government eagle looks to the left, while a Nazi Party eagle looks to the right. Yours looks to the right. But this does not always hold true. John SikorskiSIKORSKIS ATTIC Inside...

Associated PressA containerpondput together using a planter on a patio in San Francisco. The next most important are solitary wasps, he said. These are docile, gentle animals. They can be very small. Crop-pollinating native bees and other beneficial insects have three basic habitat needs, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture: Plant variety. Provide forage plants with overlapping blooming times so that flowers are available to provide pollen and nectar throughout the insects flight season, or from early spring until late fall. Native bees and other pollinators come in many sizes, so it also is important to provide flowers of various sizes, shapes and colors, the USDA said in a fact sheet. Nesting sites. Many bees nest underground, in tree cavities or snags often clumps of leaves, branches and fallen grass. That makes them vulnerable to deep soil tillage or tree removal, the agency said. Protection from indiscriminate pesticide use. Insecticides are primarily broad-spectrum and are therefore deadly to bees. Herbicide use also can remove many of the flowers that bees need for food, the USDA said. The goal should not be to eliminate your use of honeybees but to diversify and reduce your dependence upon them, Gordon said.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014E5 E12SUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE BRING YOUR FISHING POLE!

MUSTANG 3/3/3 712618 $369,900 POLLINATORSContinued from Page E3 Associated PressWhen Ann and Glen Gage downsized from their expansive home and garden in Switzerland to a San Francisco town house, one of the things they missed most was the koi pond theyd built and tended for years. It was brimming with elegant plants, fish and its own ecosystem. So they built not one but two new ponds, this time city-style: one for their balcony overlooking San Francisco and the other for their leafy entryway. If you have limited space or want an interesting water feature ... patio or container ponds are an easy option, and the only limits are your creativity, said Marc Hachadourian, Director of the Nolan Greenhouses for Living Collections at the New York Botanical Garden. The Gages assembled their container ponds using large planters, which they made water-tight by caulking any drainage holes. Then they added gravel and a few larger rocks, and filled the container with water. They added an electric a bubbler and filter, to make the fish happy. Next came a few floating aquatic plants, which they harvested from a pond in the area, and finally a variety of rescue fish from a pet store. We have a really small space and Ann said, wouldnt it be cool to have a pond here? It couldnt have been easier, said Glen Gage. Its way less work to maintain than a big aquarium no cleaning the tank or syphoning out the dirty water and theres a relaxing zen quality to the gently bubbling water and swimming fish. Maintenance involves only refilling the container to replace water lost to evaporation. Although some people put mosquito-killing tablets in the water, experts say a few small fish are sufficient to take care of insect larvae. You can go crazy with really fancy fish, but our local pet store is super nice and they just let us reach in for feeder fish and choose some Even a small patio can have a fish pond Clever use of containers can provide aquatic habitat for finned friends See PONDS / Page E7

Not only should we watch our use of nitrates and pesticides like everyone else, but we also have charge of a small stretch of waterfront that needs special attention. Currently, the planned development of Hunter Springs Park involves a living shoreline which, with property owners help, will extend from the park into Kings Bay. For everyone on the water, your charge is to keep as much undeveloped as possible. A living shoreline leaves between 10 and 30 feet undeveloped. No mowing, no fertilizing, no nitrates, and no dumping of grass clippings. This gives wildlife a place to flourish. This doesnt mean that those who dwell on the shoreline cant pull up a noxious weed or two. My particular enemy is water hemlock, a weed that is poisonous to most creatures and that can crowd out more beneficial growth, said one member of the Waterfront Advisory Board. So those of you who live on the water, it all boils down to this: let the good stuff grow, and weed out the bad by hand and stay away from chemicals of any kind. Special to the ChronicleIf you live on the water, do your part by leaving part of your shoreline undeveloped, to promote a living shoreline. The Waterfront Advisory Board would like to hear what you have done to protect our springs, our rivers, our bays, and our water supply. Please send any suggestions you may have to lketchum@crystal riverfl.org, so that we can publish them in the monthly Do One Thing article in Homefront. Do one thing: Create a living shoreline

leaves, pairs of pollen sacs are pulled free and are carried to the anther slits of a different flower to ensure pollination. On all Milkweeds, the characteristic small, fivepetal flowers reflex downward surrounding a central waxy corona. The Australian/Asian Hoya plants have similar flowers. Tropical Milkweed, Asclepias curassavica,from South America, zones 9-12, is commonly called Bloodflower. It is readily available in local nursery outlets. This perennial has deep tuberous roots and grows, about 3 feet tall and is evergreen in South Florida. It dies to the ground in central Floridas cooler winters. Loose clusters of a few flowers are usually red and orange, although there is a yellow, weaker selected variety. There are at least 20 species of Asclepias native to Florida, but few are commercially available. The most widespread Milkweed in the United States is A. tuberosacommonly named Butterfly Milkweed, which grows in zones 4-10. It grows naturally in about 40 lower states but not in the Pacific Northwest or the Canadian maritime provinces. Its northern limit is about latitude 48. The plant grows 2 to 3 feet tall from a deep, underground rhizome. It is prevalent in dry sandhills, woodland edges, roadsides and any well-drained, fullsun site. It does not tolerate root disturbance, wet soils or excessive irrigation. Large clusters of bright orange flowers top sturdy stems that range from 6 to 12 inches high in younger plants to 36-inch stems in an older specimen. This long-lived perennial is the host plant for Monarch Butterfly caterpillars. Adult Monarch females lay eggs the size of a pinhead on the alternate, lance-shaped leaves. Tiny caterpillars hatch after three or four days and munch the milkweed leaves for about two weeks before going into a chrysalis, where they change into adults. Milkweed seedpods are elongated, paper-thin pods called follicles. When mature, they dry and split open to reveal rows of overlapping black seeds attached to silky floss called pappus. The seeds are wafted away on the filament-like parachutes to germinate and grow far from the parent plant. The second most common Milkweed is A. syriaca,growing naturally in about 39 states and six provinces, but not in Florida, the southwestern states, or Idaho and Washington. Flowers are clustered in a round globe atop 3-foot tall stems. Heat zone 10 in Florida is too hot for this species to survive. Milkweed is a colorful and useful plant in wildflower meadows and butterfly gardens throughout Florida. Companion plants include Black-eyed Susan, Rudbeckia; Purple Coneflower, Echinacea; Blazingstar, Liatris; and the evergreen flowering vines Carolina jessamine,Gelsemium sempervirensand Coral Honeysuckle,Lonicera sempervirens.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant.

DEAN FOSDICK/Associated PressA bumble bee searching for nectar from a rosemary plant near Langley, Wash. Honeybees are irreplaceable as pollinators,but you can somewhat offset their loss by attracting beetles, butterflies and moths, dragonflies, feral bees, bumblebees and wasps, among others. DEANFOSDICK Associated PressThe dramatic loss of honeybees to changing land use, viruses and pesticides is alarming, and they are irreplaceable as pollinators. But you can somewhat offset their loss by attracting alternative pollinators, such as beetles, butterflies and moths, dragonflies, feral bees, wasps and flower flies. Attracting these beneficial insects requires a long-term landscaping commitment, however. They need a wide variety of forage plants along with protected nesting sites to thrive. The plant community and the bee community are intimately related, said David Gordon, an associate professor of entomology at Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas. Habitat is everything to pollinators. Start by observing, protecting and enhancing whats already on your property. Know whats out there in the way of beneficial insects and forage plants, Gordon said. If you have some bees present, you can generally increase their numbers by providing them the resources they need to proliferate. The smaller the size of your operation, the more likely that such a strategy will be successful and in a shorter time, he said. Eric Mader, assistant director of The Xerces Societys pollinator program and lead author of its new guide, Farming With Native Beneficial Insects (Storey Publishing), says, Honeybees always will be needed for almonds and larger, industrial-size agriculture crops. Theyll always be part of the equation. But for many crops native to the United States, like blueberries and pumpkins, that evolved prior to the introduction of (European) honeybees, native bees do a perfectly adequate job pollinating these plants, he said. Syrphid flies are a good honeybee alternative. These so-called flower flies superficially resemble bees, Mader said. Theyre predatory insects as larvae, primarily feeding on aphids. Then they become important pollinators as adults. Munn hits new high for 2014ERA American Realty & Investments is proud to announce the latest production level achieved by one of its agents.

Gypsys Two Cents: Ahh, a simple life eat, sleep, play. Play requires a toy collection, and I hide them everywhere. I hear squeak in the middle of the night and know my blind dad found one. Customers find one, recognize its value and quickly ask, is this for sale? I respond, sorry, not for sale, but humans only hear a growl.Isuppose it can be dog toys, but collecting can be addictive. So many interests and options. Art, jewelry, Lionel trains, Depression glass, rock n roll, pottery the list goes on and on. No matter what your interest, collecting can be loads of fun. We all go places mentally that are not a very good use of our time. Our desire to acquire takes time and money, though for many its timeormoney. Both can be difficult to manage. Time spent can be searching or researching, driving, or that wasteful state of day dreaming. If totaled up, I suspect the time spent adding to a collection would surprise us all. Typically, collectors will pay more for items than dealers at shops, auctions or markets. When time and money is available, the collector is like a dog with a bone. Satisfying that desire always brings a smile. One way to control the desire is to create a list. Mental lists are quickly and easily modified by giving in to impulse buying. Written lists and the discipline to stick with them can assist with the many temptations. Of course, you could always leave the list in your pocket. I personally have collected very little through the years: 150 vintage tennis racquets, Bev Doolittle art, a few old radios and I love games in tennis. Do potato chips and ice cream count? This months story by Cindy DeVries: Collecting is a joy, but when ones done with a collection, it doesnt mean you have to stop. One just moves on to something new. Case in point: One year for Christmas, my sister-in-law asked the family for our favorite recipes, but they had to be handwritten. One can find recipes in books, magazines and of course the internet, but handwritten recipes are a dying art form, especially when written in cursive. I have since gone through Grandmas and Moms recipes and pulled out the handwritten ones, and now Im always on the lookout for handwritten recipes. But you see, its not my fault its my sister-in-laws!Steve Barnes owns and, along with his shop dog Gypsy, operates Olde Inverness Antiques.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014E15 E2SUNDAY, AUGUST31, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OUR MISSION To be the worldwide real estate leader, achieving our goal by helping others achieve theirs.
