BayAreaCool.com License# CACO10415 000J66Y 795-2665 Air Conditioning & Heating America deserves a raise Associated PressMILWAUKEE President Barack Obama renewed his push for Congress to raise the minimum wage Monday in a buoyant accounting of the economys revving performance, delivered on behalf of Democrats opening their fall campaigns for the midterm congressional elections. America deserves a raise, he told a union crowd in Milwaukee, vowing to keep a hard sell on Congress in much the way he once courted his wife. I just wore her down, he cracked. Timing his push to Labor Day, the traditional start of the autumn campaign, Obama aggressively drew attention to recent economic gains, setting aside past caution on that subject. By almost every measure the American economy and American workers are better off than when I took office, he said, rattling off a string of improving economic indicators even while acknowledging not all people are benefiting. The engines, he said, are revving a little louder. It was, at least indirectly, a pep talk for Democrats facing tough races in a nation still gripped with economic anxieties. The emphasis on the minimum wage is designed to draw campaign contrasts with Republicans, many of whom maintain that an increase would hurt small businesses and slow down hiring. No one expects Congress to act on it before the November elections. Despite the absence of a federal increase, 13 states raised their minimum wages at the beginning of this year. Those states have added jobs at a faster pace than those that did not raise the wage, providing a counterpoint to a Congressional Budget Office report earlier this year that projected that a higher minimum wage of $10.10 an hour could cost the nation 500,000 jobs. Until now, Obama and his White House aides had been reluctant to Associated PressPresident Obama hugs Chris Harris, vice president of United Steel Workers Local 2-209, after being introduced Monday at Laborfest 2014 at Henry Maier Festival Park in Milwaukee.

But to get in the saddle that was another thing. Then his children last year bought him a horse. Now Mallory is over his fear of horses and enjoys riding and caring for his horse. Its like a horse is a really big dog, he said, explaining the horses playful nature. I just think its really cool. Mallory doesnt back off from a challenge. Mallory, an 18-year veteran of animal services in Pasco County, including eight months as interim director, now has his first full-time directors job in Citrus. His job? Quieting concerns from pet advocates about shelter resources, or lack of them, that resulted in 1,863 cats and 468 dogs euthanized last year. Theres never a boring day, he said. Its always a challenge. I enjoy working with people. Mallory, who started work just three weeks ago, served 13 years in the Air Force. Upon retirement, he worked as a 911 dispatcher in Pasco County and then transferred to animal services as an animal control officer. He moved his way up the ranks to shelter supervisor and then interim director before taking the Citrus job. Mallory said he moved last year from Pasco to Bushnell, so the drive to and from Inverness is much shorter. Citrus Community Services Director Amy Engelken said Mallory brings much knowledge to the job. Kevins experience includes management of both community and field staff, budgeting, emergency management certifications and community partnerships with rescue groups, she said. The challenges in Citrus are nothing new. Any county facility has similar issues, he said.

After having reached the Florida Deferred Retirement Option Program (DROP) mandatory retirement date, DiGiovanni and the city contracted with SS Solutions, a staff leasing company based in St. Augustine, so DiGiovanni could continue in his role as city manager. Because SS Solutions generally only contracts with people for one year, as of Sept. 30, DiGiovannis contract with them ends. However, this doesnt mean ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerLECANTO The Centers Board of Directors had to look no further than their own campus to find the most qualified person to fill the vacant chief executive officer position. After an extensive nationwide search for the next CEO of the organization, the board of directors announced on Aug. 25 the selection of their Interim CEO Tim Cowart to fill the position. Cowart has been serving as interim CEO since March after the death of Charles Powell. Cowart served as second-incommand under Powells direction since 2013.

Party to benefit founder of local blues organization NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESSIt was April5, 1917, the eve of Americas entry into World WarI, when the Inverness Womans Club was founded. In 1937, for the clubs 20th anniversary, town poet laureate Phebe Kendrick Thompson wrote:Just 20 years ago, dear friends, some of us met and planned To sit no longer by the stream, nor longer idly stand, While world events were rushing by in a history-making race, So we organized our Womans Club and proudly took our place.The building the club occupied from the early 1920s until 2000, when longtime Inverness resident Linda Bega bought it for her Landmark Realty office, was originally occupied by the office of Superintendent of Schools R.L. Turner. He moved his office to the Historic Courthouse in 1917. It was a tiny building with angled sides, Bega said. Theres still part of that left here, and the back door is still its original angle. The building was enlarged in 1922, paid off in 1926 and became a library, as well as the meeting place of the Kiwanis Club. However, for more than 75 years, the building belonged to the women of Inverness. According to Hampton Dunns Back Home, as World War I raged overseas, the women of Inverness wanted to do their part for the war effort, as well as working for the betterment of the community. The Womans Club formed as a central group, combining several womens organizations, including the Inverness Village Improvement Society, which was responsible for planting many of the stately oak trees in the area, the Library Association and a standing committee for the Red Cross. Dunn wrote that in 1918, the Inverness Womans Club planted oak trees on the grounds of the grammar school and named each tree for an Inverness hometown young man who was in military service. During World WarI, club members met to roll bandages, knit sweaters and scarves for servicemen. Citrus High School used the building for its proms. Except for putting up portable partitions and walls to make a conference room, the building is the same as it was when Bega bought it, with its original wainscoting and hardwood floors and odd angles. Being right here on Main Street, so many people who have been here forever stop and tell me about coming to school dances here. Functions, graduations everything was held here at the Womans Club, Bega said. When we bought it, it still had a stage and the original stage lights, this galvanized trough with light bulbs in it. We havent really changed a thing. Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at352-5642927 or nkennedy@chronicle online.com. NANCY KENNEDY /ChronicleToday, the Inverness Womans Club building at 311 W.

Associated PressPLANT CITY Floridas two main rivals for governor kicked their campaigns into gear on Monday as both Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Charlie Crist lashed out at each other in an effort to ramp up enthusiasm among core voters. Scott, the Republican incumbent seeking a second term, started a two-week bus tour at stops in eastern Hillsborough County and Bradenton, where he derided Crist as a slick politician and smooth talker. Hes just like Barack Obama. He thinks money grows on trees, Scott said. Those two are exactly the same. They are in for big spending, more debt and higher taxes. Crist, who was elected as a Republican in 2006 but is seeking a second term as a Democrat, made his own effort to connect with Democratic voters by attending Labor Day picnics being put on by central Florida unions. He blasted Scott as a corporate governor who is crushing the middle class because hes allowing utility companies and property insurance companies to raise their rates. Crist scoffed at Scotts pledges to increase spending on the environment and education and said they were an election-year conversion intended to get people to forget Scotts record. Hes trying to be more like me, and I understand it because we do whats right for people and he does whats right for corporations, Crist said. Governors race heats up on Labor Day

The two-hour MDA Show of Strength aired Sunday on ABC, and the organization said it will continue accepting donations through Monday. A final tallys expected Tuesday. MDA President and CEO Steven M. Derks said it was inspiring to see so many celebrities, musicians and athletes join forces to help raise money for the treatment of muscular dystrophy and related diseases. Grammy-winner LeAnn Rimes, Rascal Flatts and hiphop star Jason Derulo were part of the shows lineup this year, along with other entertainers. The telethon was the fourth since comedian Jerry Lewiss 45-year role as host ended. The 2013 telethon raised more than $59 million.Jennifer Lawrence requests nude pics investigationLOS ANGELES A publicist for Jennifer Lawrence said the actress has contacted authorities after nude photos of her were apparently stolen and posted online. Intimate images of the Oscar winning actress began appearing online on Sunday and nude images purported to be of other female celebrities were also being circulated online. The source of the leak wasnt immediately known. Lawrences publicist Liz Mahoney calls the posts a flagrant violation of privacy. She said Lawrence, the star of The Hunger Games movies, has asked authorities to prosecute whoever is posting the photos. Mahoney declined to provide any further details.Celebrity chef charged with DUISOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. Celebrity chef Todd English who has opened restaurants around the country and written multiple cookbooks, was arrested Sunday on a charge of driving while intoxicated, authorities said. Police in Southampton said English was arrested Sunday morning on a county road on Long Island. He made a court appearance later in the day, and authorities said he posted $1,500 bail. The circumstances of the arrest were unavailable. Englishs lawyer, Edward Burke Jr ., said they adamantly deny the allegations and look forward to addressing this matter in a court of law. The chef, whose full name is William Todd English, is the creative force behind a number of restaurants around the country, including Olives, Figs and Fish Club. He also has been a regular on television programs including Iron Chef USA. English has written several cookbooks and has been honored by the James Beard Foundation for excellence and achievement in cuisine. In September 2009, his former fiance was charged with assault, and authorities accused her of hitting him with a metal wristwatch, leaving him needing multiple stitches. The couple had been scheduled to get married, but English called off the wedding. A judge in January 2010 closed the case without prison or probation based on her going through anger management and performing community service. From wire reports Associated PressDonnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy tied the knot Sunday in a ceremony outside Chicago, McCarthys publicist, Brad Cafarelli, confirmed. Its the second marriage for both 45-yearold Wahlberg and 41-year-old McCarthy. Wahlberg still performs with his boy band New Kids on the Block and also stars in the CBS police drama Blue Bloods.

CENTERSContinued from Page A1 take in more animals than you have room for. So the goal, he said, is to reduce the number of animals coming in and increasing the pet adoptions going out. The shelter has about 100 dogs and 75 cats and is overcrowded. Generally, he said, about half the animals are strays and the other half are surrendered by their owners. Its the second number he wants to target. Mallory said hes working on a plan to allow owners to drop off their dogs or cats only when the shelter has room to take them. He said pet owners could find other avenues friends or rescue organizations. Educating pet owners about the benefits of spay or neuter will reduce the animal population. He said Pasco County cut its incoming cat and dog population by 60 percent in 10 years by emphasizing a sterilization program. Mallory is working with volunteer groups and rescue organizations to find ways, within his means, of reducing the dog and cat population without euthanizing. I work well with these people generally, he said. Lets see what we can do to work through these issues. During his short tenure, Mallory has already seen things he likes. He said the shelters veterinarian, Dr. Danesh Ayromloo, has clinic hours on Thursday for residents to bring in their pets for vaccinations or heartworm tests. For a schedule of times and fees, see www.citruscritters. com. He also is impressed with the website, which not only shows photos of pets available for adoption, but also encourages residents to search the site for their lost pets. After five days in the shelter, dogs and cats not claimed are available for adoption. Responsibility rests with the pet owners, he said. They need to go looking for their animals, Mallory said. And he was surprised to see the Citrus shelter accepts livestock, such as chickens, rabbits and horses. One horse wearing a halter was found by someone who kept it a few days hoping its owner would show up. When that didnt happen, the quarter horse ended up at the shelter. This recent addition has Mallory baffled. How do you not know, he said, that your horse is missing?Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

At tonights regular city council meeting, council members will discuss creating a city employment contract with DiGiovanni. If they decide to work out a contract with me it will be very much akin to the one I used to have, and Ill remain with the city until 2016, DiGiovanni said.

Volusia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue Capt. Tammy Marris said the Boca Raton girl was body-surfing Sunday afternoon in New Smyrna Beach when she was bitten on the calf. Marris told The Daytona Beach News-Journal the girl was in waist-deep water.

The Clearwater Marine Aquarium was the location of the 2011 Dolphin Tale movie inspired by the real-life rescue and rehabilitation of Winter the dolphin, which was fitted with a prosthetic tail. A sequel scheduled to hit theaters this month focuses on another dolphin calf named Hope rescued in 2010. Aquarium officials said rehabilitation and marine rescues, not entertainment, will be the focus of the new $68 million downtown aquatic center. The aquarium cut the price tag for the new center by nearly $100 million by dropping typical entertainment facilities such as a dolphin stadium. Guests will be able to view staff working with animals from platforms and walkways. State BRIEFS From wire reports

economic trends, worried that some may prove illusory or that, even if they hold, many working Americans continue to live on the edge of poverty and take no comfort in the upswing. But in Milwaukee, Obama dared to say of the job picture, Were on a streak. White House aides still insist they are not declaring full victory over the lingering effects of a recession that ended five years ago. But White House officials believe it is time to highlight recent improvements, in part to strengthen a difficult political environment for Democrats and to counter public perceptions that are eroding the presidents public approval. Officials said Obamas most compelling case is to compare the economy now to what he inherited in 2009 in the aftermath of a near Wall Street meltdown. Obama, whose public approval is at about 40 percent, has also been cautious about making appearances in states with close midterm political contests and where his popularity might be even lower. But in coming to Wisconsin, he brought his Labor Day message to the state that was the epicenter of a fight over the collective bargaining rights of public employees. Labor Secretary Tom Perez and several national labor leaders came with him. In Wisconsin, Republican Gov. Scott Walker, who pushed through a law that stripped most public sector union members of their ability to collectively bargain, is now in a tight reelection campaign and has been mentioned as a potential GOP presidential candidate in 2016. Polls find that Walker and Democrat Mary Burke are deadlocked with the election just over two months away. Walker was at General Mitchell International Airport to greet Obama upon his arrival in Milwaukee. Walker also greeted the labor leaders accompanying Obama, including Mary Kay Henry of the Services Employees International Union and Leo Gerard of the United Steelworkers Union. The White House is encouraging Democrats to draw attention to the recovery as they head into the November mid-term elections. In an August memo to House and Senate Democrats, Obamas top two economic advisers underscored the positive news: more than 200,000 jobs created per month for six consecutive months, a sixyear high in auto sales, second-quarter economic growth that exceeded expectations and an expanding manufacturing sector. The unemployment rate stands at 6.2 percent, dropping 1.1 points over the past year, and the stock market has nearly tripled in five years.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, SEPTEMBER2, 2014 A7 000J711 Not a Chain Store No Salesmen 31 Years of Experience You Can Trust HEAR CLEARER NOW!

For the RECORD John Morgan: The man behind the medical pot drive Associated PressORLANDO The worst day of John Morgans life was when his brother snapped his neck diving into a Walt Disney World lagoon while working as a lifeguard. It left him a quadriplegic. That day also set Morgan, the man behind Floridas medical marijuana ballot initiative, on a course that would make him a wealthy and locally famous personal injury lawyer. Morgan, then an undergraduate student, watched as Disneys lawyers successfully fought his brother at every turn. When the case eventually boiled down to a workers compensation claim, even then the big corporation beat the little guy. Instead of settling, Disney said Tim Morgan could still work as a resort telephone operator on the graveyard shift. It was like, Weve crushed you. I was so frustrated. I knew what I was going to do, Morgan said he would get revenge against those who hurt his brother and those like them. And Ive never done anything else. Thats not quite true. Since then hes also wielded a lot of political influence; started an investment firm with retired NBA star Grant Hill; opened a crime museum in Washington, D.C., with Americas Most Wanted host John Walsh; built a string of science-themed attractions called Wonderworks; and spent $4 million to get the medical marijuana proposal on the November ballot an issue also inspired by his brother Tim, who smokes pot to help control muscle spasms he still suffers from his diving injury. John Morgan, 58, began Morgan & Morgan in 1988 with three lawyers. It now has 260 lawyers in 23 offices across six states, built in part by being a pioneer among personal injury lawyers who advertise on television and billboards. His ads blanket the state. Morgan counts presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton among his friends and former Gov. Charlie Crist, who is again running for governor, is an employee. Morgan is a huge political donor who has raised millions of dollars for candidates usually Democrats, but hes also written checks for Republicans. And his personality is as big as his law firm. Hes charismatic, with a sense of humor thats often sprinkled with profanity. He is not shy about his fondness for Tennessee whiskey, but after a 1997 DUI he said doesnt get behind the wheel if he has even a single drink. Instead he has a black limousine and a driver. Morgan doesnt hide his wealth, but he is generous with it. An Orlando food bank named its distribution center after his firm when he and his wife Ultima donated $2 million to the organization. He hands out large denomination bills when approached by the homeless and helps many others privately. He has a you-cant-take-it-withyou attitude about his millions. Ive been to a thousand funerals. Ive never seen a U-Haul hooked up to a hearse, Morgan, holding a whiskey on the rocks, told the Tampa Bay Young Republicans this spring while talking about the marijuana initiative. The GOP group took some heat for inviting Morgan to the event. Executive director Lacey Wickline acknowledged that many Republicans dont like Morgan because of his political stances and unapologetic style. But Wickline said Morgan is a huge Florida employer and investor and simply a nice guy who likes to help people. Hes kind of like Bill Clinton in that he makes you feel like the most important person in the room. He just has that much charisma and I think its absolutely genuine, she said. Hes worked his butt off. Hes built this empire and I just admire that regardless of what we disagree on politically. Those fighting him on the medical marijuana issue arent so positive about Morgan. Hes been very nasty and very unprofessional to the people debating him, said Calvina Fay, executive director of the Drug Free America Foundation. Morgan admits when challenged, he fights back hard. When somebody comes looking for a fight, I will take out my right hand with an open palm and slap them down to the ground, he said. Morgan is the oldest of five children born to alcoholic parents. His father had a hard time holding a job and his mother was an angry drunk. He remembers at 14 driving and with no drivers license packing his siblings into a car and checking into a motel to escape her. He said looking back now, its hard to imagine that was his life. We were dealing with the hellcat, he said. She was one of these that would wake up and just be coming at ya, belligerent as hell, just blind running drunk. So Morgan spent a lot of his time working. At 14 he was flipping burgers at a Dairy Queen. He said the job made him feel sky high and he liked the feeling of having money in his pocket. In college he worked at Disney as a costumed character, beginning as the The Jungle Book orangutan King Louie and later portraying Fiddler Pig and finally Pluto. John Morganspent $4 million to get the medical marijuana proposal on the November ballot.

OPINION Page A8TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2014 Supporters make a differenceLocal businesses do a lot to support nonprofit organizations throughout Citrus County, and many have asked me what they can do to help. Here at Mid Florida Homeless Coalition, our efforts to prevent and end homelessness constantly stretch our needs, time and resources to their limits. Without the support and kindness of these businesses, we would never see the kinds of growth and progress we have experienced in the past few years. This year, we are fortunate enough to have a dedicated office for the first time, giving us room for better management of time, volunteers and distribution of information. Of course, the facility also comes with the need for the basics. One of our key supporters is Smartphone Experts. They have been a supporter of Mid Florida Homeless Coalition over the years in many ways, from monetary holiday donations to guidance to website support. So when they heard that we were finally getting an office, they were the first to offer help. Just like when a person goes from a homeless shelter to a home and they are lacking the basic necessities, we were lacking basic office furniture. Smartphone Experts and Social Media Design (now both under one roof) came to our rescue with a donation of cubicles, chairs, bookshelves, tables, file cabinets and more. These gently used items are a blessing to our organization and will help make us even more productive in the future. Our thanks to these two local companies for their support, and to Diana Kingree for the mentoring she continues to provide.Barbara Wheeler Mid Florida Homeless Coalition Ionce knew a curmudgeonly physician whose wife practiced family therapy. In her off hours, she often counseled a small army of girlfriends through romantic entanglements. One evening at dinner, the grumpy doctor decided hed heard enough secondhand tales of woe. Look, he said. I know people have got to (bleep). It was covered in the medical school curriculum. But they certainly dont have to talk about it to the exclusion of all else, do they? Thats my attitude toward the 2016 presidential race. Im assuming that Hillary Clintons running because of how ostentatiously shes not made up her mind. By sitting tight, she basically freezes potential Democratic rivals in place, passively using her lead in opinion polls to prevent others from raising money. Otherwise, cant we please, please wait until 2016 to obsess about it around the clock? There will be three World Series, two NBA championships and a couple of NCAA football seasons between now and then. Politically speaking, well be in a different world. But no, were not going to get even an August recess if the Washington infotainment industry gets its way. Witness the recent stir over Clintons ill-advised interview with The Atlantics Jeffrey Goldberg, a colloquy quickly cartoonized into a rebuke of President Obama that never actually happened. For now, the only important thing is to recognize how these media quasi-events take shape. Guided by Goldberg, headline writers focused on a throwaway line characterized by the inimitable Maureen Dowd as a cheap shot at President Obama ... calling him a wimp just as he was preparing to order airstrikes against ISIS. Clinton said this: Great nations need organizing principles, and Dont do stupid stuff is not an organizing principle. Actually, President Obamas version of the slogan was earthier. However, turning Hillarys paraphrase into an insult required ignoring almost everything she said about his administrations foreign policy. Why had Obama used the phrase? I think he was trying to communicate to the American people that hes not going to do something crazy, Clinton said. Ive sat in too many rooms with the president. Hes thoughtful; hes incredibly smart, and able to analyze a lot of different factors that are all moving at the same time. I think he is cautious because he knows what he inherited, both the two wars and the economic front, and he has expended a lot of capital and energy trying to pull us out of the hole were in. So I think that thats a political message. Does that sound like a slam to you? Elsewhere, Clinton added, It was stupid to do what we did in Iraq and to have no plan about what to do after we did it. That was really stupid. Shed voted for the Iraq war, you may recall. Dowd certainly remembered. The erratic New York Timescolumnist bitterly blamed Hillary for the death of her friend Michael Kelly, the first embedded journalist to die there. Dowd neglected to mention Kellys own September 2002 column calling Al Gore wretched, vile, contemptible and worse for opposing the invasion. I guess she forgot. But did Hillary really argue that if Obama had armed Syrian moderates as shed recommended as secretary of state, that the United States wouldnt have to be bombing ISIS fanatics in Iraq today blowing our own tanks and APCs to smithereens that they captured from fleeing Iraqi soldiers? That was another headline take from The Atlantic interview. Once again, no, she did not. Indeed, she reminded Goldberg that the chapter on Syria in her recent book was entitled A Wicked Problem. I cant sit here today, Clinton said, and say that if we had done what I recommended, and what (then-U.S. Ambassador) Robert Ford recommended, that wed be in a demonstrably different place ... I dont think we can claim to know. Obamas position was that the idea of an effective fighting force of Syrian moderates is essentially a fantasy. He said exactly that to CBS Morning News last May, although hes since asked Congress for $500 million to help train and equip this fantasy army money hes unlikely to get. James Fallows argues that people who thought the U.S. could stage-manage the Syrian civil war were deluding themselves: Yeah, we should have done something in Syria to prevent the rise of ISIS. But the U.S. did a hell of a lot of somethings in Iraq over the past decade, with a lot more leverage than it could possibly have had in Syria. And the result of the somethings in Iraq was ... ? Well, it was the mad fanatics of ISIS. Actually, The Atlantic interview is fascinating, if not for the ballyhooed reasons. Hillary Clinton has provocative things to say about U.S. foreign policy some alarming, and others more about political positioning than anything else. Come 2016, there will be plenty of time to discuss them.Arkansas Times columnist Gene Lyons is a National Magazine Award winner. You can email Lyons at eugene lyons2@yahoo.com.

Save the date: Saturday, Sept. 20. Its Citrus Countys 19th annual Lakes, Rivers and Coastal Cleanup. Every year on the third Saturday of September, volunteers remove debris from shorelines, waterways and beaches of our lakes, rivers, bays and ponds. Previous participants know its like a very ugly treasure hunt. Last year, some 600 volunteers on 23 teams collected about 2,560 pounds of debris from our waters. The top three types of recovered trash were cigarette butts, plastic bags and bottles, and food wrappers and containers. Volunteers also found tires, furniture, appliances, diapers and more. This debris does not put itself into our waters. Be one of the local good guys and help to get it out. Save Our Waters Week (SOWW) runs from Sept. 20 through 27. It is led by the citizen group Citrus 20/20 in partnership with county government, the water management district and a range of community organizations. This years theme is Florida Springs A Treasure in Jeopardy. Participate in any of more than a dozen interesting activities, many of them free. Events range from such active pursuits as the countywide coastal cleanup and lyngbya algae cleanups at Hunter Springs and Three Sisters Springs (followed by a volunteer appreciation cookout), to sit-back-and-learn eco-tours of the Crystal River, the National Wildlife Refuge, Crystal River Preserve State Park, Kings Bay, and the Homosassa River.

OPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, SEPTEMBER2, 2014 A9 000J50B Vets share experience with local studentsEach year, Citrus County celebrates Veterans Day with a weeklong program featuring concerts, parades, military balls, memorial observances and other activities similar to those of many other communities. One especially popular activity is the Veterans in the Classroom (VIC) program, which has existed for nearly 20 years. Its origin stems from an ad-hoc committee established by county commissioners at the urging of a Navy veteran, Walter Gene Rudd, and with support from the Chronicle,to undertake certain veterans affairs activities. VIC became a sub-venture of the later established Citrus County Veterans Coalition Inc. (CCVC) and was delegated to be managed by the Citrus County Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) Chapter five years after its inception. MOAA continues this very popular program, serving one of Floridas most veteranfriendly school districts. This continuing partnership between the Citrus County school system, CCVC and MOAA was elevated to its prominence by the late Commander Bob Truax. Participating veterans served in all major conflicts dating back to World War II. Experiences are shared with youngsters who have little or no knowledge of the accomplishments and sacrifices made by approximately 28,000 veterans now living in their midst. Under the aegis of a very supportive Superintendent of Schools, Sandra Sam Himmel, and welcoming teachers in virtually every school, an informative dialogue occurs between veterans and youngsters during Veterans Week. In 2013, MOAA solicited the participation of 68 veterans fulfilling 168 speaking engagements in 19 schools throughout the county. The program has special meaning to both the students and the veterans. Students indeed have inquiring minds about the conflicts of the past of which they have only a vague understanding, if any at all. The younger students eagerly question the vets about things ranging from what they ate, where they slept, were they scared, how does a rocket launcher work and where were you? Mature students often delve into the reasons and results of the conflicts under discussion. Overall, the experience is beneficial for both younger and more mature students, as there are revelations generated not to be found in the available textbooks or included in the prevailing syllabi. Veteran participants feel rewarded by having the opportunity to enlighten youngsters about the things that needed to be done to defend and preserve the freedoms and opportunities enjoyed by youngsters today. Students and teachers enjoy the opportunity to see and hear an old soldier who survived the landing at Normandy, a Navy nurse who served offshore at the Inchon invasion, an admiral who was a key player in developing our naval nuclear program, a Marine who made it back from the Chosin reservoir, an Air Force pilot who flew many missions in Vietnam, the submariner who endured months under the sea, the Coast Guard member who served with the riverine force in the Mekong Delta, members of the local National Guard company deployed to Iraq/ Afghanistan and from others whose contributions would likely never be known to those in whom we entrust the future. Listen up! You can help! This year, Veterans Week is focused on those who courageously served in Vietnam. The opportunity is now for local Vietnam vets to help our future leaders understand and appreciate the challenges they faced. We also encourage the younger Iraq/ Afghanistan vets to join with us, as they can perhaps provide more recent accounts that are more meaningful to students by virtue of contemporary media coverage and family involvement.Robert Crawford member, Citrus County MOAA HernandoLooking for missing dollarsIts interesting that yesterday afternoon, Aug. 6, the headline on the Fox News website was that the Obama administration is missing $612 billion and cant account for it. Today the story is gone and there is no sign of it anywhere on the website. I also heard that CBS morning news was the only other news organization to cover it. Its nowhere in sight on their website, either. So what is going on here? I dont know, but Id like to know. I speculate that extreme pressure from the Obama administration resulted in the story being killed. The majority of this money is in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). More than $500 billion was unaccounted for in their budget. There is no record of where the money went or what it was spent on. In case you have a short memory, Kathleen Sebelius was the Secretary of HHS from 2009 to 2014. Prior to that she was governor of Kansas from 2003 to 2009 and had seven failed multi-million dollar projects there. Her major failure as secretary of HHS was the Obamacare website, but it appears she also spent taxpayers dollars on the pet projects of Democrats. You cant do that, and Ill explain why. The way our government works is Congress approves legislation that becomes law and then appropriates money to support the laws and distributes it to the departments in charge of executing the laws. Auditors discovered that HHS has routinely spent taxpayer money on projects that were not appropriated by Congress. Of course, the Obamas administration is violating the Constitution when it takes these actions. The Anti-Deficiency Act compels large fines and possible jail time for individuals within the administration who are caught spending money that has never been appropriated. It has not stopped Obama cronies from funding the Democrats pet projects in violation of the ADA. The HHS audit details that the HHS accounting system is totally inadequate for the load placed on it without beginning to consider Obamacare. It appears they just spent money willy-nilly on pet projects that were never authorized by Congress. In case you dont appreciate the seriousness of this situation, realize that $612 billion is 20 percent of the entire federal budget, and we dont know what it was spent on. Obama and the Democrats consider the Constitution to just be a speed bump in their race to socialism. Its time we took action to impress upon them that the Constitution must be honored, not ignored.Harley Lawrence Homosassa Letters to THE EDITOR OPINIONS INVITEDThe opinions expressed in Chronicle editorials are the opinions of the newspapers editorial board.Viewpoints depicted in political cartoons, columns or letters do not necessarily represent the opinion of the editorial board.

Six dead after car slams into tree in TexasDALLAS A speeding car slammed into a tree after losing control along a Dallas roadway, killing all six people inside, police said Monday The crash occurred Sunday night in a southeast Dallas residential area, said Dallas police officer Monica Cordova. The victims were two teenage boys, two men and two women ranging in age from 15 to 23. The Dallas school district said three of those killed were high school students. Speed was a major contributing factor in the crash, but not alcohol, Cordova said.Civil unrest expected in fast-food fightNEW YORK McDonalds, Wendys and other fast-food restaurants are expected to be targeted with acts of civil disobedience that could lead to arrests Thursday as labor organizers escalate their campaign to unionize the industrys workers. Kendall Fells, an organizing director for Fast Food Forward, said workers in a couple of dozen cities were trained to peacefully engage in civil disobedience ahead of this weeks planned protests. Fells declined to say what exactly is in store for the protests in around 150 U.S. cities. But workers involved in the movement recently cited sit-ins as an example of strategies they could use to intensify their push for higher pay and unionization.Louisiana obeys judges order on abortion lawBATON ROUGE, La. The Louisiana health department will follow a federal judges order and refrain from immediately penalizing doctors who are trying to comply with a new abortion law that requires them to obtain admitting privileges at a local hospital, a spokeswoman said Monday. U.S. District Judge John deGravelles issued a temporary restraining order late Sunday that blocked enforcement of the new law that took effect Monday. The law requires physicians at all five abortion clinics in Louisiana to obtain privileges to admit patients to a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic where the doctor works. State Department of Health and Hospitals spokeswoman Olivia Watkins told The Associated Press on Monday that the agency wont take action against any provider who shows he or she has applied for such privileges. It was not immediately clear whether doctors from all five clinics have applied for hospital privileges.

Jeffrey Fowle and Mathew Miller said they expect to face trial within a month. But they said they do not know what punishment they could face or what the specific charges against them are. Kenneth Bae, who already is serving a 15-year term, said his health has deteriorated at the labor camp where he works eight hours a day. The three were allowed to speak briefly with The Associated Press at a meeting center in Pyongyang. North Korean officials were present during the interviews, conducted separately and in different rooms, but did not censor the questions that were asked. Parents of ill UK boy fight extraditionLONDON The parents say they want to give their 5-year-old boy with a brain tumor the best chance to live with a revolutionary new treatment they learned about on the Internet. Their British hospital said the boy has a 70 percent to 80 percent chance of survival with the treatment it offers, and its the parents who are putting the child at risk. Britain has become riveted by the case of little Ashya King, whose parents plucked him from a hospital in southern England and fled to Spain amid a dispute over treatment with British justice close on the familys heels. Brett and Naghemeh King signaled Monday they would fight extradition, defying doctors and the legal system as a British court considers a ruling on forcing the family to come home. The Kings are seeking a new type of proton beam radiation therapy that typically costs at least $33,000. The Southampton General Hospital said that more conventional methods have a very high chance of succeeding. The family fled to Spain in hopes of selling a property to obtain enough cash for treatment in the Czech Republic or the United States. Ethicists said the case is unprecedented and has raised questions of how much power authorities should have in interfering with the will of parents in questions of life and death. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressMOSCOW Pro-Russian rebels softened their demand for full independence Monday, saying they would respect Ukraines sovereignty in exchange for autonomy a shift that reflects Moscows desire to strike a deal at a new round of peace talks. The insurgents platform, released at the start of Mondays negotiations in Minsk, the Belarusian capital, represented a significant change in their vision for the future of Ukraines eastern, mainly Russian-speaking region. It remains unclear, however, whether the talks can reach a compromise amid the brutal fighting that has continued in eastern Ukraine. On Monday, the rebels pushed Ukrainian government forces from an airport near Luhansk, the second-largest rebelheld city, the latest in a series of military gains. The peace talks in Minsk follow last weeks meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Ukrainian counterpart, Petro Poroshenko. The negotiations involve former Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma; Russias ambassador to Ukraine; an envoy from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and representatives of the rebels. Yet similar talks earlier this summer produced no visible results. Unlike the previous rounds, this time rebels said in a statement carried by Russias state-run RIA Novosti news agency that they are willing to discuss the preservation of the united economic, cultural and political space of Ukraine. In return, they demanded a comprehensive amnesty and broad local powers that would include being able to appoint their own local law enforcement officials. This deal is only for eastern Ukraine. There are no negotiations on handing back Crimea, the Black Sea peninsula that Russia annexed in March. Rebels shift gears Ukraine insurgents soften independence claims, ask for autonomy Labor Day parade Associated PressT.J. Thompson drives his 1960 Farmall 340 tractor Monday in the Labor Day parade in Catlettsburg, Ky. Associated PressCHICAGO Americans eating habits have improved except among the poor, evidence of a widening wealth gap when it comes to diet. Yet even among wealthier adults, food choices remain far from ideal, a 12-year study found. On an index of healthy eating where a perfect score is 110, U.S. adults averaged just 40 points in 1999-2000, climbing steadily to 47 points in 2009-10, the study found. Scores for low-income adults were lower than the average and barely budged during the years studied. They averaged almost four points lower than those for high-income adults at the beginning; the difference increased to more than six points in 2009-10. Higher scores mean greater intake of hearthealthy foods including vegetables, fruits, whole grains and healthy fats, and a high score means a low risk of obesity and chronic illnesses including heart disease, strokes and diabetes. Low scores mean people face greater chances for developing those ailments. The widening rich-poor diet gap is disconcerting and will have important public health implications, said study co-author Dr. Frank Hu of the Harvard School of Public Health. Diet-linked chronic diseases such as diabetes have become more common in Americans in general, and especially in the poor, he noted. Declining diet quality over time may actually widen the gap between the poor and the rich, Hu said. Harvard School of Public Health researchers developed the healthy diet index used for the study. It is similar to federal dietary guidelines but features additional categories including red and processed meats, sugar-sweetened beverages and alcohol. The study authors used that index along with government estimates on trans fat intake to evaluate information in 1999-2010 national health surveys that included interviews with people about their eating habits. The results are published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine. Hu said the widening diet gap reflects an income gap that deepened during the recent financial crisis, which likely made healthy food less affordable for many people. Study: Poor have worst diets Associated PressPORTSMOUTH, N.H. One set of elections ends in early November as another begins when presidential hopefuls cross the unofficial starting line in the 2016 race for the White House. Heres a look at potential 2016 candidates and what to expect this fall: HILLARY CLINTON: The former secretary of states every word will be parsed for her future plans. But Clinton has been offering plenty of hints that shes preparing for another campaign. Her allies are wary of a third Obama term label, so Clintons speeches and appearances offer a chance to distinguish herself from the president. JOE BIDEN: Vice President Joe Biden has not ruled out a third presidential bid and expects to be an active surrogate for Democrats this fall. Whether hed challenge Clinton remains the big question. OTHER DEMOCRATS: Several Democrats are building for a national campaign in case Clinton doesnt run or considering a longshot challenge. Maryland Gov. Martin OMalley has been the most active, raising money for candidates in Iowa and New Hampshire. Former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb recently traveled to Iowa. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent who caucuses with Democrats, plans to visit the Hawkeye State in midSeptember. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren would face pressure to run if Clinton doesnt. JEB BUSH: More than seven years out of office, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has been quieter than some of his GOP colleagues. He recently said hed begin a more aggressive schedule to help Republicans this fall. RAND PAUL: Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul has been perhaps the most aggressive prospective candidate. The ophthalmologist recently squeezed in a mission to perform eye surgeries in Guatemala between stops in Iowa and South Carolina. CHRIS CHRISTIE: Working to move past a bridge-clogging scandal that shadowed his plans, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie continues an aggressive travel schedule this fall as chairman of the Republican Governors Association. Having already visited New Hampshire, hes announced a trip to South Carolina, where hell have a chance to test his message with more conservative voters. RICK PERRY: Eyeing a second presidential bid, Texas Gov. Rick Perry was already facing challenges before his recent felony indictments. His advisers suggest the charges could actually help his political prospects, and he has pressed ahead with visits to Iowa, Washington, D.C., and New Hampshire. OTHER REPUBLICANS: The possible GOP field also includes Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker hopes to use his reelection test this fall as a springboard into 2016. Others must convince skeptics they have mainstream appeal including conservative firebrand Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and social conservative Rick Santorum. Focus shifting to 2016 Presidential hopefuls look beyond midterms

RISAK CorrespondentAfter just one week in the volleyball season, one fact is readily evident: This county has four pretty good teams. Of course, the obvious question is, how good each will be at seasons end? Growth, development and improvement will answer that query. Each team has shown the potential to go beyond being just pretty good, advancing into a higher realm, one that only teams with both ability and focus can attain. And that translates into a long run in the state tournament.Warriors send early messageTheres no denying that the team that has made the biggest impression thus far is Seven Rivers Christian. The Warriors have been perfect they have not only beaten two of their three county rivals (Citrus wont play Seven Rivers until Sept. 9), but they have dominated them. On Tuesday, Seven Rivers swept past visiting Crystal River, winning all three sets, and then on Thursday the Warriors repeated that result by dispatching Lecanto in straight sets. Which means they arent just 2-0 in matches played this season, they are 6-0 in games played against teams that tied for their regular-season district championship last season and are expected to challenge for the same title again this year. Granted, its only the seasons first week. Still, Seven Rivers has been impressive behind the play of do-everything standout Alyssa Gage and a defense that digs everything up. The Warriors have to, considering they have recorded just three blocks in their first two matches. But paced defensively by Kim Iwaniec, Michaela Wallace, Deanne St. Martin, Tessa Kacer and Gage, who each have more than 20 digs in the first two matches, the Warriors have battled and simply worn down their opponents.Pirates adjustingComing into the season, Crystal River coach Mike Ridley was concerned about the loss of so many veterans (six), most ofArea squads start seasonsSee NOTEBOOK/ Page B3 MATT PFIFFNER /ChronicleAlyssa Gage of Seven Rivers Christian returns a serve Aug. 26 in Lecanto during the Warriors three-set victory over in-county rival Crystal River. Gage and the Warriors are off to a 2-0 start to the season after a pair of straight-set victories. Warriors senior captain a leader on and off the volleyball court C.J. RISAK CorrespondentA year ago, Seven Rivers Christian won 19 volleyball matches and reached the regional round of play in the 2A-3 tournament. Alyssa Gage wasnt just a demon on the floor she led the county in kills and also ranked in the top three in kill percentage, blocks, assists and service aces she proved a valuable contributor off of it, serving as a team captain. She was just a junior then. Now, Gage returns for her senior campaign. Both her own and her teams encore performance got off to a rousing start last week with home matches against county rivals Crystal River and Lecanto. The Warriors dominated, sweeping past both in straight sets. Again, Gage was a team leader in each match. She currently tops the Warriors in blocks and assists and is tied for the team lead in kills, and shes averaging 11.5 digs per match. Taking all that into consideration, it would seem almost unfair to ask her coach, Wanda Grey, how Gage could have improved from last season. She brings power to the net, was Greys answer. Her athletic ability is amazing, she can go from one side of the court to the other quicker than other athletes you see. Grey didnt stop there. She also helps maintain energy on the team, she keeps them pumped up, keeps the intensity going. Shes definitely a leader, and thats why shes our captain. Perhaps Crystal River coach Mike Ridley said it best after last Tuesdays loss. Alyssa is obviously a very strong player, he said. Her team feeds off of her. Most of last seasons key players return this season for the Warriors, with a notable exception: One of the countys strongest players, 6-foot-3 Alexis Zachar, graduated. That meant the Warriors would be smaller this season, and not just due to the absence of Zachars height at the net. There are also just eight players on the varsity squad. That means even more will be expected of Gage officially listed as a 5-foot-10 outside hitter this season. Dizzy in heat at US Open No. 7 Bouchard out of upset-heavy grand slam Associated PressNEW YORK Bothered by the heat and stifling humidity, Eugenie Bouchard felt dizzy and her vision was blurry. She got her blood pressure checked. Plastic bags filled with ice were rubbed on her shoulders, arms and legs during a second-set medical timeout. Bouchard tried to carry on, but it was hardly an ideal time to try to win a tennis match. The No. 7seeded Bouchard became the latest top woman to bow out at this surprise-filled U.S. Open, beaten 7-6 (2), 6-4 Monday by 17th-seeded Ekaterina Makarova of Russia in the fourth round. It ended Bouchards streak of making at least the semifinals at each Grand Slam tournament this year. That included a runner-up finish at Wimbledon in July; the 20-year-old Canadian is only 4-4 since then. I definitely felt a lot of outside expectations and pressure to win matches. I felt more like its normal if I win and its a bit more of a disaster when I lose, Joyces RBI single in 10th lifts Rays past Red Sox Tampa Bay and Boston split four-game series Associated PressST. PETERBURG Matt Joyce had an RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning to help the Tampa Bay Rays salvage a split of a four-game series by beating the Boston Red Sox 4-3 on Monday. Ryan Hanigan opened the 10th with a double off Burke Badenhop (0-3), which withstood a replay review. Kevin Kiermaier was intentionally walked before Ben Zobrist had a sacrifice bunt. After Wil Myers was given an intentional walk, pinchrunner Sean Rodriquez, who ran for Hanigan, scored on Joyces hit to left. Grant Balfour (2-6) worked a scoreless inning for the win. He did give up a one-out single in the 10th to Christian Vazquez, but then picked off pinchrunner Jemile Weeks at first base. After Mike Napoli hit a solo homer in the fourth inning, Yoenis Cespedes got the Red Sox even at 3-3 with an RBI single off Steve Geltz in the eighth. Myers had an RBI double and Evan Longoria drove in two with a single off Rubby De La Rosa as the Rays took a 3-1 lead in the third. Myers, who entered hitting .143 (6 for 42 with 16 strikeouts) since returning from a broken right wrist, finished with three hits in four at-bats. Longoria has 34 RBIs in 41 games since the All-Star break. De La Rosa allowed three runs and six hits over 5 1/3 innings. Drew Smyly, who on Wednesday at Baltimore became just the second Tampa Bay pitcher to have consecutive starts of seven or more innings and two hits or less, gave up two runs and three hits in 5 2/3 innings. Mookie Betts put the Red Sox up 1-0 with a runscoring double in the third. The rookie had six RBIs, including a grand slam Friday night, in the four-game series.

Associated PressATLANTA Cole Hamels and three Philadelphia Phillies relievers combined to pitch a no-hitter Monday, beating the Atlanta Braves 7-0 and giving a last-place team a rare reason to celebrate. Hamels (8-6) was pulled after six innings and seemed fine with the decision. He struck out seven, walked five, hit a batter and threw 108 pitches on a hot afternoon at Turner Field. Relievers Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and closer Jonathan Papelbon each pitched a perfect inning to finish off the fourth no-hitter in the majors this season. Clayton Kershaw and Josh Beckett of the Dodgers and Tim Lincecum of the Giants each threw no-hitter earlier this year. Right fielder Marlon Byrd foiled the Braves best bid for a hit. With runners on second and third in the third inning, Byrd raced in and toward the line to make a diving catch on Chris Johnsons sliced liner to end the inning. Johnson came close again in the ninth with a grounder up the middle. Shortstop Jimmy Rollins ranged behind the bag to make the play. Phil Gosselin then lined out to first baseman Darin Ruf, who had taken over in the ninth for Ryan Howard, to end the game. This was the 11th combined no-hitter in major league history. Roy Halladay pitched the previous two Phillies no-hitters he threw a perfect game against the Marlins in 2010, then threw a nohitter the same year in the playoffs against Cincinnati. It was 12th no-hitter in Phillies history. The last pitcher to no-hit the Braves was Ubaldo Jimenez of Colorado in 2010.AMERICAN LEAGUE Twins 6, Orioles 4BALTIMORE Joe Mauer drove in four runs, Phil Hughes held Baltimore without an earned run over eight innings and the Minnesota Twins beat the Orioles 6-4 to avoid a four-game sweep. Nelson Cruz hit his major-league leading 36th home run and Nick Hundley had a three-run shot for the AL Eastleading Orioles. Hughes (15-9) gave up five hits, no walks and three unearned runs.Tigers 12, Indians 1CLEVELAND David Price bounced back from an alarming start and Miguel Cabrera homered twice, hitting one of Detroits three homers off Clevelands Corey Kluber, as the Tigers rolled to a 12-1 win to slow the Indians climb in the standings. Price (13-10) gave up one run and eight hits in seven innings. Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the first inning off Kluber (13-9) and Victor Martinez and J.D. Martinez connected for consecutive shots in the third. Cabrera homered again in the eighth off rookie Bryan Price.Athletics 6, Mariners 1OAKLAND, Calif. Adam Dunn provided instant pop for the struggling Athletics, hitting a towering, two-run homer in his first at-bat for Oakland to highlight a 6-1 win over the Seattle Mariners in a matchup of playoff contenders. Acquired a day earlier in a trade with the Chicago White Sox, Dunn became the 12th player in Oakland history to homer in his first at-bat with the team. Dunns 461st career home run tied him for 35th place all-time with Red Sox slugger David Ortiz.Royals 4, Rangers 3KANSAS CITY, Mo. Salvador Perez homered and drove in three runs, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Texas Rangers 4-3 to snap a three-game losing streak. Perez, who had three hits, went deep in the third with Alex Gordon aboard. His two-out double in the first scored Gordon, who had singled and swiped second. Yordano Ventura allowed three runs, two earned, and five hits in 6 1/3 innings for Kansas City. The righthander struck out seven and walked four. Greg Holland pitched the ninth for his 41st save in 43 chances.NATIONAL LEAGUE Marlins 9, Mets 6MIAMI Giancarlo Stanton hit his 34th home run and the Miami Marlins scored three runs in the eighth inning to beat the New York Mets 9-6. Miami took advantage of some wildness by Mets reliever Jeurys Familia (2-4) in the eighth. Familia had two throwing errors and a wild pitch, leading to the three tiebreaking runs as the Marlins snapped a five-game losing streak to the Mets. A.J. Ramos (6-0) pitched a scoreless eighth and Steve Cishek the ninth for his 32nd save.Cardinals 5, Pirates 4ST. LOUIS Matt Holliday had the go-ahead RBI single in the seventh inning after Kolten Wongs pinch-hit homer tied the score, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-4 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. St. Louis took sole possession of first place in the NL Central for the first time this season. Seth Maness (6-3) picked up win in relief. Trevor Rosenthal got the last three outs for his 41st save.Cubs 4, Brewers 2CHICAGO Welington Castillo homered and drove in three runs, Luis Valbuena also hit a home run and the Chicago Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2. Rookie sensation Jorge Soler had two doubles in his home debut for the Cubs and Jacob Turner (5-8) won in just his second start for Chicago after being acquired from Miami last month. The right-hander allowed just one run and five hits in 6 1/3 innings.

General manager Jeff Luhnow says the decision wasnt based on Houstons record but because we need a new direction in our clubhouse. The Astros entered Monday in fourth place in the AL West with a 59-79 record, second worst in the league. Bench coach Dave Trembley was also let go and Tom Lawless takes over as interim manager.From wire reports

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Bouchard said. But thats something that I need to block out. In muggy air, with the temperature in the high 80s, Bouchard began having trouble from the middle of the first set and was checked on by a trainer during the changeover after the second sets fifth game. During that delay, Makarova cooled down by putting ice bags on herself. Asked what went through her mind during Bouchards medical break, Makarova smiled. Well, actually, I thought, Thanks, because I also was tired, Makarova said with a smile. It was really (helpful) for me also. Li Na beat Dominika Cibulkova at the Australian Open in January; Li didnt even enter the U.S. Open because of a knee injury, while Cibulkova was stunned by 15-year-old American CiCi Bellis in the first round. Maria Sharapova edged Simona Halep at the French Open in June; Sharapova lost to Caroline Wozniacki in the fourth round in New York, and Halep went out in the third round against qualifier Mirjana LucicBaroni. Petra Kvitova defeated Bouchard at Wimbledon; Kvitova departed in the third round in Flushing Meadows against 145th-ranked qualifier Aleksandra Krunic. Two-time U.S. Open runner-up Victoria Azarenka returned to the quarterfinals by ending the surprising run of Krunic. The 16th-seeded Azarenka won four of the last five games to edge Krunic 4-6, 6-4, 6-4. The top-seeded man, Novak Djokovic, played mostly mistake-free tennis, making only 19 unforced errors and facing only two break points both saved in a 6-1, 7-5, 6-4 victory over 22nd-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany. Djokovic, the 2011 U.S. Open champion, earned a spot in the quarterfinals at the U.S. Open for the eighth year in a row and at a 22nd consecutive Grand Slam tournament overall. The last time Djokovic was eliminated before the quarterfinals at a major was a third-round loss to Kohlschreiber at the 2009 French Open. Djokovic now meets two-time major champion Andy Murray, who got past No. 9 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-5, 7-5, 6-4. In fourth-round mens matches Monday night, No. 3 Stan Wawrinka brushed off a tumble into the stands and beat No. 16 Tommy Robredo 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 (7), 6-2, and No. 5 Milos Raonic played No. 10 Kei Nishikori. Williams got to her first Grand Slam quarterfinal of 2014 by overwhelming 50th-ranked Kaia Kanepi of Estonia 6-3, 6-3 Monday. Williams has lost 17 games all told the eighth time shes made it to the U.S. Open quarterfinals dropping that many or fewer.

It showed in their loss to Seven Rivers the Pirates were good, but not quite as good as their opponents in keeping the ball in play. Certainly Crystal River has promise, featuring more size than last season with sophomores Kaylan Sims and Abby Epstein, and returning standout Cassidy Wardlow at outside hitter. But again, they have new setters and a rebuilt defense that will have to prove itself.Inconsistent start for PanthersLecantos loss at Seven Rivers is more difficult to comprehend. The Panthers didnt lose that many to graduation (three), with several of their top players returning. However, what also has resurfaced is the teams inability to handle difficult situations. Lecanto was 10-9 last season, at times displaying an ability to beat anybody. But then, the Panthers could also look like a team that anyone could beat. Its certainly frustrating to their coach, Alice Christian. Last Wednesday, Lecanto got hammered by The Villages in their opening set, then bounced back to win three straight and the match. Against Seven Rivers, it appeared the Panthers simply lost focus at times. Those lapses, often ignited by Lecanto errors, allowed the Warriors to string together several points in a row and turn a tight score into sizable cushion. Much of it was set up by Seven Rivers opening-set 28-26 comeback win, a game in which the Warriors didnt lead until the final points. If the Panthers are to become serious contenders in 5A-6, they must develop a mental toughness that will allow them to deal with adverse situations.Fine-tuning for CanesCitrus coach Sandy VanDervort said her team only needed to refine, not rebuild, after winning the Hurricanes first district volleyball title in 19 years last season. Eight players from that team are gone, which means theres still a lot of fine-tuning to come. Citrus split its first two matches, and one of those is worth noting. Like both Crystal River and Lecanto, the Canes dispatched The Villages, but they also lost in straight sets to Ocala St. John Lutheran the team that is always Seven Rivers biggest challenger in 2A-3. That result has a double meaning: First, how much fine-tuning remains for Citrus, and second, how much Seven Rivers needs to improve to be a 2A-3 contender.TEAM RECORDS Seven Rivers Christian, 2-0 overall, 0-0 in 2A-3; Crystal River, 2-1 overall, 0-0 in 5A-6; Citrus, 1-1 overall, 0-0 in 5A-6; Lecanto, 1-1 overall, 0-0 in 5A-6.

NOTEBOOKContinued from Page B1 And she plans to meet those lofty expectations. Asked what she could do better in volleyball this year she was selected as the Chronicles Athlete of the Year after being named all-county not just in volleyball, but also basketball and softball Gage replied, I improved my vertical (jump) by a couple of inches by weightlifting and conditioning, and its helped my hitting a lot. Gage knew that she would have to be even better this year. My blocking needed to improve, and my setting definitely, so we can get Julia (Eckart) hitting and so I can be an all-around distributor, she said. So far, so good. Her setting has enabled Eckart to become a power at the net shes tied with Gage for the team lead in kills (each has 15) and has a team-best kill percentage of .484. But Gage knew that alone would not be enough. She could never supply the net presence that Zachar gave, a presence that forced opponents to alter their attacks away from her. That meant the Warriors would have to be even better defensively. In their two victories theyve done just that: Five Seven Rivers players have more than 20 digs. But still, even that upgrade wont be enough. The Warriors will need to attack from all over the court, and Gage knows that if she isnt setting the ball, shell be pounding it. As much as her attack game was enhanced last season, shes gotten even better this year. Shes worked out over the summer and her power has improved, Grey said. When she makes contact with the ball, when she really makes contact, no ones going to dig it up. Gage still has loftier expectations for herself. I need to be a supporter, because we have some newer girls on the team, she said. Some girls just came up from JV and they need confidencebuilding. So is there anything else she can do? Shes digging the ball, shes hitting the ball, shes setting the ball, was Greys summary Shes definitely an all-around player. GAGEContinued from Page B1 Florida still working on suspended game Associated PressGAINESVILLE Florida expects to know what will happen with its postponed season opener in the next two days. The Gators dont need nearly as much time to decide what to do about the suspensions of receiver Demarcus Robinson and defensive tackles Darious Cummings and Jay-nard Bostwick. Florida coach Will Muschamp reinstated Robinson, Cummings and Bostwick on Monday, saying they would play Saturday against Eastern Michigan (1-0). So their punishment essentially lasted 10 seconds. Muschamp could have kept their suspensions in place against Eastern Michigan or said they would be suspended against Idaho if the game is rescheduled. He did neither. They will be back this week with us, he said. Not just as far as the suspension of a game, but theyve handled a lot of other things for me. Asked specifically if the players still would be suspended if the Vandals return to Gainesville, Muschamp responded, I cant even answer that question. No. 1, we dont know the situation of the game right now. The game was postponed Saturday night because of unsafe field conditions following heavy rain. Florida Field became unplayable after hours of downpours. The season opener for both teams started after a nearly three-hour lightning delay and then stopped after 10 seconds. Valdez Showers returned the opening kickoff 64 yards, giving Floridas offense the ball on the 14-yard line. But more lightning was detected around the stadium, and the game was halted for good. Game officials, athletic directors and the Southeastern Conference offered four possible outcomes: The teams could resume the game at a later date. They could end the game with a determined final score. They could forfeit the game. Or they could declare a no contest. Those are the things that are being discussed, Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said Monday. Theres a lot of things that go into football scheduling and whats in the best interest of your football team and your fans and the entire program. Thats how I work things around here. I like to get a lot of input from a lot of different people and then make a decision. Thats what were in the process of doing right now. Both teams have an open date on Saturday, Oct. 25. But its unclear whether they would be willing to play then. Especially Florida, which would be in the middle of a tough stretch of games in the Southeastern Conference. Louisville defeats Miami 31-13 in ACC debutLOUISVILLE, Ky. Dominique Browns 15-yard touchdown run in the third quarter and Gerald Christians 10-yard TD catch late in the fourth followed Louisvilles big defensive performance that helped beat Miami 31-13 Monday night. The victory provided a successful Atlantic Coast Conference debut for the Cardinals and to Bobby Petrinos second coaching stint at the school. Louisvilles new 3-4 defense provided many of the opportunities by forcing three takeaways, including one that followed a costly fumble by Cardinals quarterback Will Gardner inside his 15. After Louisville held Miami to a field goal following Gardners second fumble in the third quarter, Brown's TD provided a 21-13 cushion. Christians scoring pass from Gardner with 1:43 remaining sealed the win.From wire reports

B4TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER2, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEGOLF Celebrating 120 Years Thank You Team Chronicle 000J1KQ We couldn t have done it without you Kirk rallies, could make the captains cut Wins Deutsche Bank title by two strokes Associated PressNORTON, Mass. Chris Kirk picked up the biggest victory of his career Monday in the Deutsche Bank Championship. Still to be determined is just how big. Kirk closed with a 5-under 66 in another wild Labor Day finish at the TPC Boston, coming up with three big putts on the back nine to pull away for a two-shot victory. Along the way, he made a strong case to be one of the three Ryder Cup picks that will be announced today. Kirk played the final 36 holes with Rory McIlroy and outplayed the worlds best golfer. Of far greater importance was winning this FedEx Cup playoff event for his second victory this season. And he got it done with a bogey-free round. Its my biggest win ever, Kirk said. Billy Horschel had a chance to at least force a playoff and possibly win when he stood in the fairway on the par-5 18th hole with a 6-iron in his hand. Horschel chunked the shot so bad that it barely reached the hazard, and he made bogey for a 69. Horschel tied for second with 54-hole leader Russell Henley (70) and Geoff Ogilvy, who extended his unlikely run through these FedEx Cup playoffs. Ogilvy was the last of the 100 qualifiers for the Deutsche Bank Championship. He went 65-65 on the weekend without a bogey. The top 70 in the FedEx Cup advance to the BMW Championship in Denver later this week. Ogilvy went from No. 100 to No. 24, and now stands a reasonable chance of getting to the Tour Championship. Kirk won for the third time in his career, though never against a field this strong and never with this much riding on it. He was No. 14 in the Ryder Cup standings, five spots away from being an automatic qualifier. This victory could go a long way toward U.S. captain Tom Watson using one of his three selections on the 29-yearold from Georgia. Kirk was trying not to think about that, saying he already had plans to be at the Georgia-Tennessee game the weekend (Sept. 26-28) of the Ryder Cup. But he would gladly break those plans for a trip to Scotland for golfs version of the Super Bowl. I definitely put myself in contention for one, Kirk said. If I get picked great. If not, Im still happy with my win today. McIlroy, who started the final round only two shots behind on a course where he won two years ago, fell back with successive bogeys on the front nine, bounced back with a pair of birdies, and then fell out of the mix by missing two short par putts early on the back nine. He closed with a 70 and tied for fifth with John Senden (66). Kirk took the outright lead for the first time with a 25-foot birdie putt on the 13th hole. He escaped trouble from deep rough on the 14th hole with a shot that bounced onto the green for a two-putt par. And right when it looked as if he was struggling with his swing, he saved par from a bunker with a 15-foot putt on the 15th. On the next hole, he made a birdie putt from just over 12 feet that gave him a two-shot lead. He looked shaky over an 8-foot birdie putt on the 18th that might have clinched it. Kirk didnt make a birdie on any of the par 5s on Monday and finished at 15-under 269. That left it to Horschel, in prime position for at least a birdie. The worst swing Ive made all week, Horschel said. Horschel was at No. 82 in the FedEx Cup and began the week wanting to be among the top 70 to advance to Cherry Hills. He at least accomplished that much. Seven players moved into the top 70, though none was more surprising that Ogilvy. Just eight days ago, he was home in Arizona believing his season was over. But when Troy Merritt missed a 10-foot par putt and Brendon Todd made a 15-foot par putt on the 18th hole, that combination sent him to Boston. And now hes a decent week away from getting back into all the majors. Jerry Kelly, his back aching, hit a 3-wood to 6 feet for eagle on the 18th hole. That proved just enough two points to get the 70th spot and move on to Denver. Kirk takes over No. 1 in the FedEx Cup, giving him a clear shot at the $10 million prize. The question now is whether his season ends in two weeks at the Tour Championship, or whether he will be in Scotland playing in his first Ryder Cup.Deutsche Bank ChampionshipMonday, At TPC Boston, Norton, Mass., Purse: $8 million, Yardage: 7,216, Par 71, Final: Chris Kirk (2,500), $1,440,00073-66-64-66 269-15 Geoff Ogilvy (1,083), $597,33370-71-65-65 271-13 Russell Henley (1,083), $597,33370-66-65-70 271-13 Billy Horschel (1,083), $597,33369-66-67-69 271-13 Rory McIlroy (525), $304,00070-69-64-70 273-11 John Senden (525), $304,00069-71-67-66 273-11 Jason Day (438), $258,000 66-68-69-71 274-10 Martin Kaymer (438), $258,00071-66-70-67 274-10 Bill Haas (331), $185,143 67-69-70-69 275-9 Chesson Hadley (331), $185,14366-73-67-69 275-9 Carl Pettersson (331), $185,14367-73-69-66 275-9 Robert Streb (331), $185,14373-67-67-68 275-9 Jimmy Walker (331), $185,14370-70-68-67 275-9 Seung-Yul Noh (331), $185,14369-68-68-70 275-9 Webb Simpson (331), $185,14366-70-68-71 275-9 Jason Kokrak (260), $112,22968-72-70-66 276-8 Keegan Bradley (260), $112,22965-71-69-71 276-8 Zach Johnson (260), $112,22971-68-70-67 276-8 Ryan Palmer (260), $112,22963-71-71-71 276-8 Adam Scott (260), $112,229 73-68-68-67 276-8 Kevin Stadler (260), $112,22971-70-67-68 276-8 Brian Stuard (260), $112,22972-71-65-68 276-8 Rickie Fowler (235), $76,80070-69-67-71 277-7 Jim Furyk (235), $76,800 72-66-69-70 277-7 Ian Poulter (235), $76,800 67-73-71-66 277-7 Russell Knox (220), $61,600 67-70-71-70 278-6 Henrik Stenson (220), $61,60070-70-73-65 278-6 Kevin Streelman (220), $61,60073-67-65-73 278-6 Matt Kuchar (198), $50,867 69-66-73-71 279-5 George McNeill (198), $50,86773-68-72-66 279-5 Bubba Watson (198), $50,86772-71-69-67 279-5 Gary Woodland (198), $50,86771-70-73-65 279-5 Ben Crane (198), $50,867 69-68-70-72 279-5 Jordan Spieth (198), $50,86767-70-69-73 279-5 Jason Bohn (163), $36,950 74-68-69-69 280-4 K.J.

Today I will cover a topic which is occasionally seen in the treatment of cancer. This is known as the unknown primary tumor, or cancer of undetermined origin. Occasionally, patients will present with enlarged lymph nodes, usually in the neck and shoulder region, which upon surgical and pathologic evaluation reveal evidence of cancer which has spread to that site. While cancers such as lymphomas can certainly originate in the lymph nodes, other types of cancers generally do not start in the lymph nodes, and when they are seen there, they represent spread of the cancer from the primary site of the tumor, commonly known as metastasis. When this is seen, thorough physical and radiographic evaluations utilizing plain xrays and CT scans are performed to attempt to determine the primary site of the cancer. Over the past 20 years, with improvements in our ability to physically evaluate various areas of the body, and also with improvements in the radiographic imaging quality of CAT scans, PET scans, and MRIs, we are generally able to locate the origin of the cancer. Occasionally, however, a cancer will present which has metastasized to a lymph node, and despite a thorough evaluation, the primary site of the tumor cannot be identified. This represents the diagnosis of an unknown primary. When the primary tumor is not readily identifiable, the first step is to have a surgeon evaluate the most common sites of tumors under an anesthetic. This allows the physician to obtain a very good view of these areas without any discomfort to the patient. Random multiple biopsies are also generally obtained from the most common areas where these tumors would originate. Depending upon the location of the involved lymph nodes, one can estimate the most common primary origins of the tumor. When lymph nodes are involved in the upper portion of the neck, these cancers tend to originate in the mouth, upper throat region, and posterior nasal region of the head and neck. As they occur down lower in the neck and in the region just above the collar bone, they are more commonly found to originate in the lower portion of the throat, the lungs, or the intestinal tract. The location of the lymph nodes helps to guide the physician to the most common sites of primary tumor involvement. Despite all of our diagnostic abilities, occasionally we still are unable to truly locate the primary site of the tumor, and must proceed with treatment to the metastatic disease which has spread to the neck. The traditional treatment for unknown primary tumors which have spread to the lymph nodes of the neck is to first perform what is known as a neck dissection. This allows the surgeon to remove the majority of the lymph nodes from the area of involvement. This is traditionally followed by a course of radiation therapy to encompass the areas involved by the metastatic disease as well as the most likely areas of the primary tumor. With this treatment, most people will not experience any recurrence of their disease. The pathologic diagnosis assists us in many instances in determining the type of treatment. Certain types of tumors are known to originate from various parts of the body and can help you to focus in on the most likely area of the tumor. Occasionally, with lymph nodes in the lower portion of the neck involved, the tumor can actually originate from the chest or abdomen, and depending upon the type of tumor, chemotherapy may be added to the regime of surgery and radiation therapy. The prognosis of patients with this type of tumor depends on many different factors such as the type of tumor present, the extent of the tumor present, and the pathologic grade or aggressiveness of the tumor which is noted on the biopsy. The diagnosis of an unknown primary is made less often today than it was 10 or 20 years ago secondary to advances in our ability to diagnose the primary site of these lesions. It is still something, however, that is encountered on an infrequent basis in oncology, and the treatment for each individual case varies depending upon the many factors described above.Dr. Bennett is a board certified radiation oncologist.

HEALTH& LIFE Section CTUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE So you know: T he information contained in the Health & Life section is not intended to cover all possible directions, precautions, warnings, drug interactions, allergic reactions or adverse effects and is not intended to replace consultation with a physician. Dr. C. Joseph BennettNAVIGATING CANCER Inside:Ear, Nose & Throat/ C2 Special event Sept. 13/ C3 Achieving balance/ C4 KATIEHENDRICK CorrespondentHealth care costs and efficiency are among the most debated (and contentious) topics today in the U.S. The Emergency Department, in particular, often comes under scrutiny for overcrowding. A 2012 study, published in The Annals of Emergency Medicine, found that, across the country, ED visits grew 60 percent faster than the population, increasing by 1.9 percent annually from 2001 to 2008, and that the duration of time patients spend there (often waiting to be seen) grew by 3.1 percent during that same period. A major reason for those long waits is a lack of resources, particularly in staffing, said Patrick Jean, MD, an emergency medical doctor in Inverness. Another cause is the subjectivity of what constitutes an emergency and some peoples knee-jerk decision to come in for any malady. People choose to go to the ED depending on many factors, such as socioeconomic status, level of healthcare education and comfort zone, Dr. Jean said. Youll see inexperienced and nervous parents with a child with a cold, while an elderly person with an abdominal catastrophe might stay at home, he said. Setting rules on who should and should not visit the Emergency Department isnt easy. The fact is, we are the safety net for a huge population, he said. Instead, he offered guidelines to help those unsure whether they require immediate attention: Possible broken bones warrant a trip to the ED, but sprains or possible fractures that have no deformity or crookedness can wait a few days to see if they get better. Most injuries you can walk on arent too bad, he said. Go to the ED if you feel tightness or discomfort in the chest, especially if youre over the age of 40, you smoke, or have high blood pressure or diabetes. Get immediate attention if you have severe belly pain that last more than a few hours. Any sudden weakness or loss of function should prompt a trip to the ED. The ED is not the right place to go if you have a cold or upper respiratory illness, especially the flu. Youll simply spread your infection to others who may be even less tolerant of it. Very few healthy people with diarrhea should go to the ED. Home remedies and over-thecounter medication do the trick, he said. People should not seek treatment for chronic conditions in the ED. If you have had a symptom for years, it is unlikely to need acute care, he said. Children with fevers who can drink and/or eat and sit up do not need to come to ED. If youre worried about a symptom, Dr. Jean recommends calling your personal physician for advice. If you cant reach him or her, your insurance company likely offers phone consultations for possible emergencies. The health departments and urgent care centers are other alternatives. Advances in technology make diagnosis more acurate

Suncoast Blvd. Homosassa, Florida 34446 For more information visit floridaconservationcoalition.org 000J35M Let me start out by defining what perennial rhinitis is. Perennial is a term used for year round. Rhinitis is a general term describing all sorts of symptoms of the nose, including congestion, runny nose, sneezing, and a multitude of other problems. Put them together and you describe a nasal problem that is with us 365 days a year. Reading the general medical literature, it would suggest that this was an uncommon cause of problems in patients 65 years of age of older. However, in my patient population, which is primarily 65 years of age and older, this is not the case. Studies suggest that 20 percent of patients suffer with this problem who are 55 years of age and older. My findings suggest that it is closer to 50 percent. Proper identification of this problem is important to reduce the impairment that it can cause and increase the quality of life and also minimize associated problems such as sinus disease, asthma, and sleep disorders, which are also very common. As we age, all of the parts of our body change and that includes our nose. The mucous inside of our nose changes in quality that can leave you with a dry, yet drippy nose, which seems strange. Also, there can be increased airflow resistance, which leads to obstruction, which can be very uncomfortable and cause patients to seek out over-thecounter remedies such as pills and sprays in order to get relief. As we know, some elderly patients have co-existing conditions that may be complicated or worsened by the use of these medications. Common disorders that my patients suffer from include arthritis, high blood pressure and heart disease, to name a few, which can be adversely affected by the improper use of certain overthe-counter medications. Also, conversely, there are medications that my patients frequently take, including high blood pressure medications, which can aggravate nasal problems. These include ACE inhibitors and beta-blockers, which are frequently used to control blood pressure problems. In many instances, patients will seek out over-the-counter remedies, which include the first-generation antihistamines, which carry a greater risk for sedation, which could put the patient at risk for a fall and fracture. Also, dryness of the mouth and the eyes are very common associated with the use of these medications. Constipation, inability to urinate, and aggravation of glaucoma, which is a high pressure inside the eyeball, are also associated with these first-generation antihistamines. Oral decongestants also available readily over-the-counter can affect the heart, blood pressure, and aggravate prostate hypertrophy. As always, identification of the exact problem will lead to a better choice of treatment, which may include the use of internasal steroid sprays, which are less risky than overthe-counter sprays and can affectively control sneezing, nasal itching, runny nose, and nasal congestion. Newer-generation antihistamines are less likely to cause the problems mentioned previously by the first-generation antihistamines and at this point in time there is only one variety that is available overthe-counter and the remainder are prescription strength only. Two other medications, one used for asthma, show promise in treating nasal congestion and runny nose, and also there is a medication called an anticholinergic, which has been out for several years and shows very good control of runny nose problems. Lastly, immunotherapy or allergy shots may be considered, particularly if we are dealing with a complex case, which can include anything from an elderly patient on many medications to even transplant patients who are on transplant rejection medications and cannot afford mixing other unknown other medications at the risk of causing further more devastating problems. If you feel you have a problem or a potential safety concern mixing medications, the best resource is your primary care doctor or an ear, nose and throat doctor to answer these questions for you and seek out the best treatment choice for you.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

The next two months are extremely busy here at Nature Coast EMS. In addition to area community activities we are involved with, Nature Coast EMS has a few projects of its own. Nature Coast EMS developed a Mobile Integrated Health Care Program (MIHP) that has been in effect for almost a year now. Our team program providers (community paramedics) track the number of 9-1-1 calls made by an individual over a short period of time. They arrange to meet personally with these patients and initiate environmental assessments, conduct mobile diagnostics, provide medication reconciliation/instructions and provide protocol-driven medical treatments at patients homes. This program is sustainable and includes primary-care services and communitybased prevention services provided with the local public health department. This focused care is for specific populations discharged from the hospital with risk of readmission. We have invited area health care professionals to a second roundtable meeting this month to discuss the progress and direction of this program to help our community Right now, Im going to give you an astounding number: $59 million. This is the total cost of falls in Citrus County over a years time. Now, that total includes everything associated from emergency transportation to and including the hospital charges, facility rehab, home health, etc. Nature Coast EMS responded to over 22,000 9-1-1 calls last year with 18 percent of those being associated to falls. Part of our Mobile Integrated Health Care Program involves fall prevention. Now Im going to give you another number: $7 million. Nature Coast EMS MIHP program and our association with A Matter of Balance programs have dropped that percentage to 16 percent in just under 12 months, thus saving $7 million in health costs so far. The 23rd of this month marks National Falls Prevention Day. On this day we invite seniors to attend a free event that involves health screenings related to falls. Screenings will be provided from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and include blood pressure and oxygen levels, blood sugar levels, hypertension, vision, hearing, balance and coordination. Plus, pharmacists will be on hand to reconcile your medications and youre encouraged to bring old medications for safe disposal. The,n from 1 to 3 p.m., there will be an engaging presentation on A Matter of Balance and our Mobile Integrated Health Care program. Complimentary light refreshments will be served throughout the day.

C4TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER2, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE HEALTH& LIFE Our hormones are in a constant state of flux. A variety of factors affect them, such as stress levels, diet and exercise. Cortisol levels rise in the morning and fall before sleep. Human growth hormone rises during exercise and during fasting states of sleep. These patterns help us to function optimally. As we age, the sex hormones decrease and the signs of this ebbing are low libido, loss of muscle and memory, increased abdominal fat and depression. I recently wrote about sex hormone testing and balancing. Its now time to address how the other hormone levels affect us. We also have a decrease in dehydroepiandrosterone, which is a hormone produced by the brain and the adrenal gland. It is a precursor to other hormones, including the sex hormones. DHEA combats aging. The adrenal glands make cortisol as well as DHEA. When under stress, the cortisol production outweighs DHEA production. Prolonged stress and a lack of exercise, combined with a poor diet, result in chronically elevated cortisol levels and diminished DHEA production. Signs of this condition include suppressed thyroid function, inflammation, accelerated aging, mild memory loss and stomach ulcers. Your body is designed to maintain a delicate hormonal balance that usually self-regulates naturally according to your age and the stresses you face in life. Eventually the adrenal glands are not able to keep up with demand and become sluggish (hypoadrenia). Symptoms of overworked adrenal glands are a lack of energy, unexplained weight gain, poor mood, depression and insomnia. Some of the contributing factors can be a poor diet, lack of exercise and prolonged or excessive stress. If you are under constant stress, or always feel tired, weak, depressed, or have a low sex drive, then you may want to have your DHEA levels checked. The adrenal glands may be supported with whole food supplements and DHEA levels can be increased with supplementation. Chronic stress, a lack of exercise, weight gain and a high carbohydrate and a bad fat diet will trigger inflammation that spurs insulin resistance and leptin production. Insulin and leptin are hormones that respectively bring glucose into the cells and cause storage of fat. Insulin resistance allows harmful blood sugar increases. This is the problem with Type 2 diabetes. Leptin is made by fat cells and in the brain. It is part of the hunger-fat storage mechanism. Both of these hormone regulation processes are negatively affected by a slightly acidic environment in the body. A diet of fast food and junk food can cause this reaction. Acidic wastes accumulate in the pancreas, impairing its ability to produce insulin. The body creates fat cells to store acid away from the vital organs. When you change your nutrition to create a more alkaline body, your body will let go of fat. An alkaline diet will decrease inflammation and increase insulin receptivity, decrease leptin production and lower blood sugar, as well as lower body fat and blood lipids. This change can also decrease heart disease, kidney disease, cancer and other tumors, stroke, hypothyroidism and hypoadrenia. An alkaline diet consists of mostly green veggies, and includes some fruits, such as limes and lemons along with some olive, grape seed, flax, borage and primrose oils. A combination of massage and trigger point therapy work, Medi-wraps and these recommended dietary changes can reduce your toxic acidic buildup, as well as a natural detox weight loss program of organic plant based protein powder shakes and tablets. The tablets are small and easily swallowed, aid elimination, and support the liver and gallbladder to process the toxins released from your fat as you lose weight, while also supporting the adrenal glands. The trigger point therapy releases acid buildup from tissues. Mediwraps are in a salt solution that draws toxins out as it decreases cellulite. These natural holistic approaches to boosting the health of your endocrine system can help you to achieve better hormone balance for youthful vitality and better blood sugar levels, as well as weight loss. Chiropractic adjusting is not just about pain relief, but about helping your body to function better. An adjustment removes nerve interference and all of your organs are under the control of the nervous system. For best results, include regular chiropractic care, exercise and these dietary changes to help all of your organs function better.

NEWS NOTES Famed writer Erma Bombeck once wrote A Tribute to Volunteers. She wrote: Volunteers are like yachts. No matter where they are, they arouse your curiosity. Where do they come from? Why are they here? They could stay moored where its safe, but they choose to cut through the rough waters, ride out the storms and take chances. They have style. If you ask how much they cost, you cant afford them. They dont contribute to our civilization. They are civilization, reflecting this nations compassion, unselfishness, caring, patience, need and just plain loving one another. Maybe like the yacht, volunteers are a luxury, as the number of them is decreasing as more of them reflect upon their worth. Did we remember to say a word of encouragement, affirmation and appreciation? Did we say thank you for our libraries, scouting programs, the Key Center, Boys & Girls Clubs, community centers? Thank you for delivering Meals On Wheels, being a part of Welcome Home, for hugging the winners of Special Olympics, providing glasses to those who cannot afford them? The decrease in Lions Club membership in Florida has resulted in a redistricting from seven districts to four. Our area is District 35-0. Our first district meeting with District Gov. Carolyn Lloyd was hosted by the Homosassa Lions Club last week. Lions clubs around the world are celebrating 100 years in Lionism with a One Hundred Million Centennial Challenge with 100 million acts of service to others, beginning this month with an emphasis on youth-related programs such as reading programs in schools and mentoring. In November, the emphasis will be sharing the vision, all of the various screenings to eradicate blindness. The third three months will involve relieving hunger through food projects such as Citrus County Blessings and food pantry donations. The final three months of this administration will see an emphasis on protecting the environment with the planting of trees and flowers, recycling. Lions around the world will be logging all of their volunteer hours above and beyond those four emphasis areas in order to reach their 25 million hours per quarter goal. Its all about our motto: We serve. Its supporting our community. Its providing glasses for those among us who have fallen on hard times and cannot afford them. Its providing leader dogs for the blind, hearing dogs. Its the Conklin Center for the Multi-handicapped. Its engaging our youths with community service projects through LEO clubs. Its the diabetic screenings and the talking book project. In District 35-0s project Right to Sight, we average 30,000 pairs of glasses collected per year. Thirty-five percent of the used glasses collected stay in the U.S.. This years Peace Poster Contest theme is Peace, Love and Understanding (a childrens contest). Its disaster preparedness at home and abroad. Its providing scholarships to deserving youths. Its partnering with other like-minded organizations in service to others. In October, a new project will be implemented as a result of a diabetic retinopathy grant. It was a gathering of Florida Lions of District 35-0 challenging us to demonstrate our We Serve theme all around our community and beyond.Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community.

Apply now for special grant Old Florida Bank offers help to nonprofits Dirt Bike School Special to the ChronicleThis summer, the Inverness Elks Lodge sponsored its inaugural Elks Dirt Bike School with Filter Youth Development and Cornerstone Baptist Church in Inverness. Filter Youth Development has been working with children in Citrus County for more than eight years, offering hope and promising solutions for Citrus County children and families. Its desire is to teach children to be thriving members of the community with a sense of purpose and the skills necessary to achieve success. This is accomplished by instructing children in the safe operation of off-road vehicles and dirt bikes. They also infuse the sense of teamwork and responsible use of motorized equipment. Cornerstone Baptist Church has long supported Filters programs and loaned them a tract in the rear of its property for Filter to store a garage, trailer and a recently donated small school bus. Filter has also been given permission to use the massive grounds as a place to ride the dirt bikes and teach their courses. Participants in the first Dirt Bike School held in July, sponsored by the Inverness Elks Lodge 2522, were: Joshua Boyers, Kylie Smith, Jayson Gilmour, Stephanie Bryant, Taylor Carter, Reed Collins, Ceirra Jenkins, Nicole Beck, Ethan Hall, Adriana Allegretti, Joshua Bryant, Will Linhart, Jacorey Hartman, Harlley Fiorentino, Alexa Hall and Brandon Beebe. The Elks supplied safety equipment, as well as beverages and snacks.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER2, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.A.A. Milne wrote, Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day. Bridge players know that sometimes there is no hurry, but on other deals, speed is essential. Now look at todays deal. How would you analyze the auction? And what should West lead against three no-trump? Norths two-spade cue-bid, in the modern style, showed at least a game-invitational hand with diamond support. However, North should have made a negative double, to show his fourcard heart suit. We must check for major-suit fits before falling back on the minors. Here, if North had doubled, South might have rebid three diamonds. Then North could have cue-bid three spades to ask his partner to convert to three no-trump with a spade stopper. North, with an aceless wonder, should not be thinking about five diamonds unless South cannot bid no-trump. Note that after that auction, West, knowing dummy has heart length, would be likely to lead his fourth-highest spade. Then South hurries to take the first 11 tricks: one spade, six diamonds and four clubs. When North cue-bid two spades, South decided, debatably with such a good hand for diamonds, to rebid two no-trump. Then North cue-bid again to ask if South really could control spades. At the table, West led the spade seven, but he should have started with a high heart. He should have had a sense of urgency to take the first five tricks and here East-West could have won the first six: five hearts and one spade.

We met online, where I said early on that I was not interested in dating because of the age disparity. I simply told her that I liked the expression on her face in the posted photos. She is beautiful. But within a few months, we fell in love and became intimate. Jane realized it was a mistake and was quick to point it out. Aside from the age problem, I also suffer from impotence and the sexual dysfunction had too great an impact. Jane wanted a man who could provide for all her needs. Jane told me she wanted to stay friends, but I refused. I really fell for her and cannot tolerate the idea that she is sexually involved with another man. This woman is a complete 10 in her heart and soul. After we broke up, I went through months of feeling bad. I cried a lot. But heres the problem. Jane seems unable to let go of me. She told me once that she liked me more than anyone she had ever known, and she finds me endlessly interesting. Every month or so, she contacts me. If it happens when Im strong and happy, I reply, and we have a nice email chat. Of course, eventually she ends up accidentally mentioning her other men, and that caves me in. Jane would never try to make me jealous, but she has no appreciation for my inability to deal with this. I have tried to go cold turkey and dump her completely, but I seem too susceptible to the possibility that shell change her mind and want me as a sweetheart again. It would be easier if I had other romantic options, but at my age and selectivity, Im not hopeful. Jane was a mistake that got out of hand, and Im paying for it. Is there a way to build a strong and lasting friendship with Jane regardless of her involvement with other men? Too Old Dear Too: No matter how nice Jane is, we suspect she enjoys making you a wee bit jealous. Otherwise, she wouldnt mention her male friends. The age gap is not insurmountable, but if a romantic relationship isnt in the cards, it will take time before you can have the type of friendship you seek. Since you are so susceptible, it might help to distance yourself more thoroughly from Jane and send her emails directly to your spam file. Its hard to cool off when you both keep fanning the flames. Dear Annie: I recently took my 5-year-old son to a birthday party for a little girl who turned 7. We put together a birthday present of arts and crafts materials including stickers, stamps, Barbie coloring pages, glitter glue, etc. We thought it was a nice present. However, when the birthday girl opened it, she laughed, and the girls best friend commented, Who would give someone that? My son was oblivious, but I was offended. Should I have said something? Concerned Mom Dear Mom: No. Youre talking about a young girl who is still learning how to respond properly to gifts. We hope she said thank you, and we trust her mother will give her pointers on polite and appropriate things to say. The best friends response was rude, but again, little kids need time to learn. The important thing is that you didnt make a big deal out of it with your son. We think your gift was lovely. Dear Annie: Im responding to L.H. in Montgomery. I, too, am 82 years old and have been single for 23 years. A little over a year ago, I became reacquainted with a wonderful gentleman Id met at a church 40 years ago. We will be getting married this fall. Do not despair. There is always hope. In Love in SoCalAnnies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
