Associated PressBEIRUT Islamic State extremists released a video Tuesday purportedly showing the beheading of a second American journalist, Steven Sotloff, and warning President Barack Obama that as long as U.S. airstrikes against the militant group continue, our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people. The footage depicting what the U.S. said appeared to be a sickening act of brutality was posted two weeks after the release of video showing the killing of James Foley and just days after Sotloffs mother pleaded for his life. Barak Barfi, a spokesman for the family, said that the Sotloffs had seen the video but that authorities have not established its authenticity. The family knows of this horrific tragedy and is grieving privately. There will be no public comment from the family during this difficult time, Barfi said. Sotloff, a 31-year-old Miamiarea native who freelanced for Time and Foreign Policy magazines, vanished in Syria in August 2013 and was not seen again until he appeared in a video released last month that showed Foleys beheading. Dressed in an orange jumpsuit against an arid Syrian landscape, Sotloff was threatened in that video with death unless the U.S. stopped airstrikes on the Islamic State. In the video distributed Tuesday and titled A Second Message to America, Sotloff appears in a similar jumpsuit before he is apparently beheaded by a fighter with the Islamic State, the extremist group that has conquered wide swaths SEPTEMBER 3, 2014Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best CommunityVOL. 120 ISSUE 27 50 CITRUS COUNTYC.R. boys golf tops Citrus to stay unbeaten /B1 HIGH92LOW72Partly cloudy with a 40 percent chance of rain.PAGE A4TODAY& next morning WEDNESDAY INSIDE INDEX Classifieds . . . .C10 Comics . . . . .C9 Community . . . .C7 Crossword . . . .C8 Editorial . . . . .A8 Entertainment . . .A4 Horoscope . . . .A4 Lottery Numbers . .B3 Lottery Payouts . .B3 Movies . . . . . .C9 Obituaries . . . .A6 TV Listings . . . .C8 No serious injuries: Polar vortex: Outside education:A pre-dawn crash snarled traffic in Inverness./A3 A new study links chills to melting ice./ A10 Students spend a lot of time in nature at the Academy of Environmental Science./ C1 Islamic extremists release video purporting to show beheading of US reporter Steven Sotloff Militants execute journalist AIR CONDITIONING AND APPLIANCE, INC.

LASKO/For the ChronicleObligations relating to Three Sisters Springs, as well as budget constraints, prompted U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials to request that another entity assume manatee watch responsibilities at the Blue Waters in Homosassa. Program volunteers will now wear Florida Park Service uniforms and officials with the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park will orchestrate their activities. Park Service will take over volunteer program in Homosassa from U.S. Fish and Wildlife A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerThe U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services more than decade-long partnership work with the manatee watch volunteer program at Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park is ending. But officials at the park said the program will continue uninterrupted and volunteers will now be donning Florida Park Service uniforms. The manatee watch program at the Blue Waters, springhead of the Homosassa River, was created in 2002 after two manatee sanctuaries were created in the area. Volunteers keep an eye on visitor interaction with endangered manatees and educate the public about proper conduct regarding the sea cows, especially during the busy winter season. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provided the training and the uniforms and the wildlife park worked on recruitment, scheduling, hour documentation, in-water training and handling complaints/reports. The arrangement worked until recently when, according Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge spokesman Ivan Vicente, his agency became overwhelmed with other projects and financial difficulties. It is not a divorce we wanted, because the wildlife park has been great partners with us, but with us getting ready to open public access to MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerThe entire Citrus Memorial hospital transaction and all it includes for the future of health care in Citrus County may well come down to the opinion of one person: Attorney General Pam Bondi. Attorneys involved in the transaction are finalizing a formal request for an opinion from Bondi to ensure the 50-year lease to Hospital Corporation of America passes muster of an untested state law. An attorney generals opinion doesnt carry the same weight as a judicial ruling, but its close. Governments rely on formal AG opinions to set policy, knowing they have the backing of the states top lawyer. The Citrus County Hospital Show is SaturdayPATFAHERTY Staff writerBuilding on last years success, the 2014 Citrus County Chamber of Commerce Business Expo will be bigger and better. Its the second annual opportunity for local businesses of all types to connect with local consumers. And the expo is designed as a family outing with a food truck, pet adoptions and project activities for children. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday in the Citrus County Auditorium as well as outside, on the accompanying county fairgrounds property, on U.S. 41 just south of Inverness. Parking and admission are free. This is Citrus County supporting Citrus County, said Jeff Inglehart of the chamber, who is coordinating the event. Its all local businesses and nonprofit organizations. He said it will be a diverse mix of all types of businesses and services. Annual business expo features 60 exhibitors Lawyers turn to Bondi for opinion on HCA deal Questions for Attorney General Pam Bondi regarding the Citrus Memorial transaction include: Can the CCHB use net proceeds of the tr ansaction for a charitable trust? May HCA demolish useless or obsolete structur es without violating state statute? (The agreement allows HCA to demolish structures not on the hospital grounds, such as off-site clinics).

Three Sisters Springs and other money issues, we asked if they could take over our role, Vicente said. We will still continue to work with the wildlife park in many other areas. We have a lot in common and we love the partnership weve had with them and will continue to have, he added. Vicente cited other logistical reasons for the parting of the ways. He said even though the Blue Waters sanctuaries are technically also under the purview of the feds, it was the Florida Fish and Wildlife Service (FWC) that set up the sanctuaries and agreed to provide law enforcement in the area since 1999. Vicente said volunteers were being trained according to a more stringent manateemanners regime, which exists in Kings Bay but does not apply to the Blue Waters. Vicente said unlike Kings Bay, where dive shop operators are required to get a rules-laden special-use permit, operators in the Blue Waters are not required to have permits. So there are lot of things that are not the same, and I think sometimes the volunteers get confused about what we do not permit in Kings Bay because its a refuge and what is allowed in Homosassa, Vicente said. Tricia Fowler, the volunteer coordinator at the wildlife park, said her office has already set in motion a new training program as required by state rules. We have a full plan in place, Fowler said, noting that training will soon begin. She said the training program is similar to what the feds have and will emphasize safety for the volunteers and the swimmers and that the educational component will teach volunteers how to answer questions visitors may have and instruct them about proper manatee manners. Fowler said there are currently 35 volunteers and that the program will now be fully run by the wildlife park. Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

In the video, the organization threatens to kill another hostage, this one identified as a British citizen. The SITE Intelligence Group, a U.S. terrorism watchdog, first reported about the videos existence. In Washington, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said U.S. intelligence analysts will work as quickly as possible to determine if the video is authentic. If the video is genuine, we are sickened by this brutal act, taking the life of another innocent American citizen, Psaki said. Our hearts go out to the Sotloff family. Psaki said it is believed that a few Americans are still being held by the Islamic State but would not give any specifics. The fighter who apparently beheads Sotloff in the video calls it retribution for Obamas continued airstrikes against the group. Im back, Obama, and Im back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State ... despite our serious warnings, the fighter says. So just as your missiles continue to strike our people, our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people. At the end of the video, he threatens to kill a third captive, a Briton, David Cawthorne Haines. It was not immediately clear who Haines was. Britains Foreign Office had no comment. The killer specifically mentions the recent U.S. airstrikes around the Mosul dam and the beleaguered Iraqi town of Amirli, making it unlikely that Sotloff was killed at the same time as Foley, as some analysts had speculated. Over the weekend, Iraqi government forces with help from U.S. airstrikes broke the Islamic States two-month siege of Amirli, a town where some 15,000 Shiite Turkmens had been stranded. In a sign of disorganization or perhaps dissension in the extremist groups ranks, it appeared that a faction of the Islamic State posted the video early, before it was supposed to be released. In a later Twitter message, those responsible apologized and asked fellow jihadis not to reproach them. Last week, Sotloffs mother, Shirley Sotloff, pleaded with his captors for mercy, saying in a video that her son was an innocent journalist and an honorable man who has always tried to help the weak. The Islamic State has terrorized rivals and civilians alike with widely publicized brutality as it seeks to expand a proto-state it has carved out on both sides of the border. In its rise to prominence over the past year, it has frequently published graphic photos and gruesome videos of bombings, beheadings and mass killings. Sotloff grew up in the Miami area, graduated from Kimball Union Academy, a prep school in New Hampshire, and then enrolled at the University of Central Florida. UCF spokeswoman Zenaida Gonzalez Kotala said Sotloff was a student majoring in journalism from 2002 to 2004. She said the school has no record of him graduating. Just how Sotloff made his way from Florida to Middle East hotspots is not clear. He published articles from Syria, Egypt and Libya in a variety of publications. Several focus on the plight of ordinary people in war-torn places. In a statement, Foreign Policy magazine said it was saddened by news of his death and called him a brave and talented journalist whose reporting showed a deep concern for the civilians caught in the middle of a brutal war. Time Editor Nancy Gibbs said Sotloff gave his life so readers would have access to information from some of the most dangerous places in the world. House Foreign Affairs Chairman Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif., said the new video demonstrates the Islamic States barbarity across the region beheading and crucifying those who dont share their ideology. He said the U.S. and allies need to step up military action against the group, including through airstrikes. At Sotloffs parents home in Pinecrest, Florida, two police vehicles blocked the driveway Tuesday and officers advised journalists to stay away. Friends of the family could be seen coming and going. Everyones been concerned. Everyone is grieving, neighbor Pepe Cazas said. Its terrible. Ive been praying for him.A2WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER3, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000IZRM Specialty Gems 600 SE Hwy. 19 Crystal River 795-5900 One of a Kind Sea Life Layaway Available 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime.

BUSTERTHOMPSON Staff writerINVERNESS Citrus County Fire Rescue personnel on Tuesday worked to free a vehicle on U.S. 41 after it became lodged underneath a tractor-trailer carrying sod. The collision occurred as the tractor-trailer was backing from the highway into Citrus Sod, off U.S. 41, Inverness, according to authorities. Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputies, Fire Rescue units and the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) responded to the crash, which occurred at approximately 6:30a.m. According to a FHP accident report, the driver of the semi was attempting to back into the entrance of Citrus Sod from the median lane while facing north. As the trailer carrying sod made its way across the northbound and southbound lanes of U.S.41, a white four-door Kia collided with the trailer, causing it to be wedged underneath. The driver of the Kia did not notice the trailer as it was entering the Citrus Sod entrance, according to the FHP report. Neither driver was seriously injured, but the driver of the Kia was transported by Nature Coast Emergency Medical Services to Ocala Regional Medical Center for non-incapacitating injuries and is expected to recover.

Speed trap scrutinized Infamous town investigated over ticketsJASONDEAREN Associated PressWALDO The north Florida town of Waldo has long had a reputation as a speed trap, and its no wonder. A small segment of highway that runs through Waldo requires drivers to speed up and slow down six times: 65mph becomes 55mph; 55 becomes 45; then goes back to 55; then back down to 45; to 55 again and eventually, 35mph. AAA named the tiny town between Jacksonville and Gainesville one of only two traffic traps nationwide and even placed an attention-getting billboard outside the limits of the town to warn drivers to slow down before entering. Now Waldo faces a scandal following allegations that the town victimizes motorists to turn a profit. Two police chiefs have been suspended, the police department has rebelled and the state is investigating possible wrongdoing. The situation simmered for years until this month, when Police Chief Mike Szabo was suspended Aug.12, apparently in response to an investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement into suspected improprieties in the way officers write tickets. The issue then burst into the open two weeks later at a Waldo City Council meeting, when a group of police officers said they had been ordered by Szabo to write at least 12 tickets per 12-hour shift or face repercussions. The officers also leveled allegations at the Aug.26 meeting against Cpl. Kenneth Smith, who had been picked to fill in for Szabo. The officers complained that Smith had, among other things, mishandled evidence. The city council then suspended Smith. Not surprisingly, things are tense at the tiny stucco storefront office that serves as Waldo City Hall. On Friday morning, Mayor Louie Davis and City Manager Kim Worley met in a small cluttered office to discuss the controversy, slamming a door shut with a no comment when a reporter walked in seeking information. Waldo has long had a reputation as a speed trap, but the allegations made by the police officers were particularly stunning since ticket quotas are illegal under Florida law. In 2013, Waldos seven police officers filed 11,603 traffic citations, according to records obtained by theGainesville Sunnewspaper. That compares with 25,461 citations in 2013 for much larger Gainesville, which has 300 officers and 128,000 residents, including thousands of college students. The fines paid by motorists are a big moneymaker. According to the citys 2013 budget, about half of its $1million in revenue came from court fines from tickets issued. After the council appearance, the officers filed a complaint with the Florida Inspector Generals Office seeking protection under the Florida Whistleblower Act. The officers said they were forced to go public because Worley failed to conduct an investigation after they told her about the quotas, the mismanagement of evidence and other problems, according to the complaint. City manager Worley broke the trust of the concerned members and went straight to Chief Szabo, the officers said in the complaint. Chief Szabo then took a retaliatory stance against the members for approximately six months. In a written statement released after the council meeting, Worley said the city takes the officers allegations seriously but will not comment further. She has requested that a commander from the Alachua County Sheriffs Office take over leadership of the department. The State Attorneys Office in Alachua County said it is waiting for the FDLE to finish its investigation of ticket quotas and other wrongdoing before deciding whether to file charges against either Szabo or Smith. The FDLE did not return a message seeking comment. The Florida Department of Transportation is in charge of setting speed limits, but says it did factor in requests from Waldo officials when setting up speed limits there. Because the stretch of highway with six different speed limits runs by schools and a popular flea market that draws many pedestrians, the department said the speed changes are legal. But enforcing speed limits is Waldos responsibility, said Tony Falotico, a traffic operations engineer at FDOT.

Brown pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault and was sentenced to time served. He spent two days in a District of Columbia jail in the case, one that further tarnished the image of the Grammy-winning singer. Brown, 25, admitted that he hit a man who tried to get in a picture the singer was taking with two women outside the W hotel a few blocks from the White House last October. The victim, Parker Adams, suffered a broken nose. At the time of the arrest, Brown was on probation in a felony assault case for attacking pop star Rihanna hours before the 2009 Grammy awards. The arrest led a judge in California to revoke his probation, and he was ordered in May to serve an additional 131 days in jail. He was released in June.Family: Joan Rivers on life supportNEW YORK Joan Rivers family is confirming that the comedian is on life support after going into cardiac arrest last week during a procedure at a doctors office.

Associated PressMIAMI More than 200,000 immigrants who bought insurance through President Barack Obamas health care initiative could lose their coverage this month if they dont submit proof this week they are legally in the country, but language barriers and computer glitches are hindering efforts to alert them. The government mailed letters in English and Spanish last month notifying about 300,000 people that if immigration and citizenship documents arent submitted by Friday, their coverage under the Affordable Care Act will end Sept. 30. However, few seem to be responding. U.S. Health and Human Services officials released information Tuesday showing that 239,000 of the original 300,000 were still receiving final notices. Immigration advocates say the notices in only two languages dont take into account the wide variety of immigrant languages. They say many who received the letters already have filed the documents either by mail or via computer, but the paperwork was not processed. And they fear most who havent responded dont understand the gravity of the situation or think they have already complied. A line at the bottom of the letter advises the recipients to call a phone number if they need the notice translated, said Amy Jones of the Southeast Asian Mutual Assistance Associations Coalition Inc. in Philadelphia. People do not know what they say or that theyre important. Many have been putting them aside or throwing them away, Jones said. Her agency, which has helped 450 immigrants sign up for health insurance under the new law, is calling enrollees to see if they received a letter and help them keep their coverage. Early on, some enrollment counselors said they did not input immigration or citizenship information to the glitch-plagued federal website so they could complete the applications. Later, they sent in the documents when the upload feature was working. Of the 8 million people who signed up for private coverage through the Affordable Care Act, about 1 million immigrants originally received notices asking for proof they are here legally and nearly 700,000 have been verified. Under the health care law, immigrants who are in the country illegally are not eligible for the program or to receive insurance subsidies. Florida and Texas have the largest numbers of immigrants whose immigration and citizenship information on file with the government conflicts with what they wrote on their health insurance applications. Nearly 100,000 in Florida received letters from the feds, yet two of the largest health advocacy groups in South Florida said theyve gotten very few phone calls seeking help. Vicki Tucci, an attorney with Legal Aid in West Palm Beach, said shes heard from fewer than 20 clients, despite meeting with thousands during open enrollment. A few thought the letter was a scam and ignored it, she said. Perhaps most frustrating, she said all but one of the letter recipients she spoke with had already sent in the documents. They had their certified mail receipt with them to prove that they sent it, Tucci said. However, even those who uploaded the documents by computer to must still call the governments helpline to see if they were received. Harry Kent Jr., 89BEVERLY HILLSHarry S.

Associated PressNEW YORK The Home Depot may be the latest retailer to suffer a credit card data breach. The Atlanta-based home improvement retailer told The Associated Press on Tuesday that it is looking into unusual activity and working with both banks and law enforcement. Protecting our customers information is something we take extremely seriously, and we are aggressively gathering facts at this point while working to protect customers, said Paula Drake, a spokeswoman at Home Depot, declining to elaborate. She said the retailer would notify customers immediately if it confirms a breach. Shares of Home Depot Inc. fell $1.88, or 2percent, to close at $91.15. Many retailers have had security walls broken in recent months, including Target, grocery store chain Supervalu, P .F. Changs and the thrift store operations of Goodwill. The rash of breaches has rattled shoppers confidence in the security of their personal data and pushed retailers, banks and card companies to increase security by speeding the adoption of microchips into U.S. credit and debit cards. Supporters say chip cards are safer because, unlike magnetic strip cards that transfer a credit card number when they are swiped at a point-of-sale terminal, chip cards use a one-time code that moves between the chip and the retailers register. The result is a transfer of data that is useless to anyone except the parties involved. Chip cards are also nearly impossible to copy, experts say. The possible data breach at Home Depot was first reported by Brian Krebs of Krebs on Security, a website that focuses on cybersecurity. Krebs said multiple banks reported evidence that Home Depot stores may be the source of a massive new batch of stolen credit and debit cards. Krebs said that the party responsible for the Home Depot breach may be the same group of Russian and Ukrainian hackers suspected in the Target breach late last year. Krebs broke the news of Targets breach.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER3, 2014 A7 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at 1,800 1,850 1,900 1,950 2,000 2,050 MAMJJA 1,960 2,000 2,040 S&P 500Close: 2,002.28 Change: -1.09 (-0.1%) 10 DAYS 16,000 16,400 16,800 17,200 MAMJJA 16,800 16,980 17,160 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 17,067.56 Change: -30.89 (-0.2%) 10 DAYSAdvanced1490 Declined1642 New Highs231 New Lows14 Vol. (in mil.)2,772 Pvs. Volume2,192 1,807 1,287 1602 1095 140 35 NYSE NASD DOW 17113.5117009.0717067.56-30.89-0.18%+2.96% DOW Trans.8519.648412.538516.25+108.23+1.29%+15.08% DOW Util.564.98556.23559.27-5.10-0.90%+14.00% NYSE Comp.11055.0211000.5111038.12-8.21-0.07%+6.13% NASDAQ4598.644576.814598.19+17.92+0.39%+10.09% S&P5002006.121994.852002.28-1.09-0.05%+8.33% S&P4001447.731437.481442.81+4.63+0.32%+7.47% Wilshire 500021277.5121162.9621244.43+10.54+0.05%+7.81% Russell 20001181.371173.061179.47+5.12+0.44%+1.36% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Crude prices sank 3percent, pulling down stocks of oil producers. Small companies, which have fewer ties to the world economy, made gains. Meanwhile, the dollar reached a one-year high against the euro. Its the picture of U.S. strength against the backdrop of global weakness, said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at BMO Private Bank in Chicago. The S&P 500 index slipped 1.09point, less than 0.1percent, to 2,002.28. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 30.89points, or 0.2percent, to 17,067.56. Market gauges that give greater weight to smaller companies fared better. The Nasdaq rose 17.92points, or 0.4percent, to 4,598.19. Two reports out Tuesday offered encouraging signs of U.S. economic growth. The Institute for Supply Management, a trade group, said its gauge of manufacturing reached 59 in August, the highest level since March 2011, buoyed by new orders for goods and increased production. Separately, the Commerce Department said that construction spending surged 1.8percent in July, the biggest increase in more than 2 years. Its clear we have a very solid economic expansion, but the stock market isnt buzzing much at all, said Anastasia Amoroso, Global Market Strategist at J.P Morgan Funds. U.S. government bond prices dropped, lifting long-term interest rates. The yield on the 10-year note rose to 2.41percent, up from 2.35percent late Friday. In metals trading, gold fell $22.40, or 1.7percent, to $1,265 an ounce. Silver slipped 34 cents, also 1.7percent, to $19.152 an ounce. Copper was flat at $3.155 a pound.

OPINION Page A8WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2014 Hospital board tax hike too high The 2014 Notice of Proposed Property Taxes shows that the tax rate for the Hospital Board if proposed Budget is adopted would increase from .2555 mils to 1.25 mils a 489 percent increase. I am confident that the taxpayers would be quite interested in the justification for such an increase. It would be a service to the public if theChroniclewere to run a story on the subject. My wife and I have been unable to find any information on that point. While taxes proposed for all other areas are reasonably stable (because of lower accessed values the dollar amount of taxes is generally down), the proposed hospital board assessment makes the total property tax bill higher than last year (in my case about 3.5 percent higher).Duane E. Hitz HomosassaEditors note: The story, which ran July 18, can still be accessed online at www. cchb-tax-rate-planning-future. Setting record straight on sales taxThose of us who write letters to the editor benefit from a veil of invisibility that shields us from instant criticism and direct confrontation. Abusing that privilege by misrepresenting facts, whether through careless research or by design, can do harm to worthy causes. Such is the case of the individual who wrote the errorladen letter to the editor opposing the 1 percent sales tax. Contrary to his claims, revenue derived from the tax can be used for no other purpose than road construction or repair. Only we voters can change the use of those revenues and then only by referendum. The tax will expire automatically in 20 years unless we voters approve an extension by referendum. We will pay tax on discretionary items only and because only the first $5,000 is subject to the tax, your $300,000 Lamborghini Gallardo will cost only $50 more. In case you are interested, tourists pay for the vast majority of discretionary items sold in this county. The tax is low. The tax is fair. Everyone benefits from decent roads, and those of us who buy things we really dont need to stay alive should pay for them. As long as low-income earners stick to food, medicine and gas, they will enjoy the roads at no additional cost. Its up to us. If we want decent roads, we have to do something about it. Our chance comes in November. Sounds simple enough.John McFadden Inverness WASHINGTONBarack Obama, presiding over an unusually dismal post-recession economy, might make matters worse with a distracting crusade against the minor and sensible business practice called inversion, more about which anon. So, consider his credentials as an economic thinker. Obama, who thinks ATMs and airport ticket kiosks cost America jobs, gave a 2013 speech regretting that Maytag workers in Illinois lost their jobs when the plant moved to Mexico, but rejoicing that more Honda cars are made in America than anyplace else and that Airbus is building new planes in Alabama. Maytag moved partly because in Illinois, which is not a right-to-work state, the price of unionized workers made Mexico a sensible choice. And Airbus is in right-to-work Alabama because capital, being mobile, goes where it is wanted and stays where it is well-treated. Alabama, and the Honda manufacturing states (Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Indiana and Ohio; all but Ohio are right-to-work), attracted these jobs by practicing entrepreneurial federalism, tailoring tax and regulatory policies to gain competitive advantages against other states. Progressives deplore this as a race to the bottom. Conservatives call it a rationality competition. Which brings us to inversions, whereby in the last decade approximately 50 U.S. companies have merged with foreign firms and located their headquarters overseas, becoming subject to that countrys lower corporate taxation. The U.S. system, unlike those of most major nations, taxes the profits that domestic corporations earn overseas, even though these profits are also taxed overseas. This double taxation is one reason approximately $2 trillion in U.S. corporate earnings are being kept abroad rather than brought home for domestic investment. Progressives say corporations using inversions are unpatriotic, which is amusing. When the Supreme Courts Citizens United decision stipulated that Americans do not forfeit their First Amendment right to political advocacy when they act together through corporations (including, and especially, incorporated nonprofit advocacy groups), progressives ridiculed the idea that corporations should be treated as people. Now, progressives charge that corporations resorting to inversion are not behaving like patriotic people. But Democrats believe in recycling even the rhetoric of John Kerry. Campaigning for president in 2004, Kerry denounced as Benedict Arnolds those American business executives who moved some operations overseas for competitive advantages. He did this among South Carolinians who work at Fujifilm, Michelin and BMW plants located there by executives who Kerry presumably thought should be despised as traitors by the Japanese, French and German publics. A publicly held corporations responsibility is to its shareholders; its fiduciary duty is to maximize the value of their holdings. If businesses supposedly have other responsibilities, who decides what they are? Presumably politicians such as Sen. Dick Durbin, the Illinois Democrat, who must have learned economics from the nursery story Rumpelstiltskin. When the Illinois-based Walgreens retail chain planned an inversion, Durbin sent the companys CEO a letter noting that its stores are a staple in our communities as though inversion would have closed the stores. Durbin warned that Walgreens financial success was built on programs and infrastructure provided by the U.S. government, particularly filling Medicare and Medicaid prescriptions. This is the progressive premise in action: Because government provides infrastructure (roads, etc.) affecting everyone, and because governmentdispensed money flows everywhere, everything is beholden to the government, and more or less belongs to the government, and should be subordinated to its preferences, which always are for more control of the nations wealth. Walgreens retreated, costing its shareholders, employees and customers billions. Inversions strengthen the U.S. economy by increasing the aftertax profits that U.S. corporations have for investment, by increasing the pool of profits available for the wages of U.S. workers, and by making the companies U.S. shareholders wealthier. Which is why the sensible corporate tax rate would be zero. This is so because corporations do not pay taxes, they collect them, necessarily passing on the burden as a cost of doing business. And studies suggest that corporations workers bear a significant portion of the burden. This should interest Obama and Durbin, who are nothing if not loquacious about wage stagnation, the suffering middle class, etc. But they actually are less distressed by the real distresses of others than they are delighted by the chance to be operatically incensed about the predictable consequences of a tax code they perpetuate. This illustrates the grandstanding frivolity of the political class. It legislates into existence incentives for what it considers perverse behavior, and then waxes indignant when businesses respond sensibly to the incentives.

Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) will become the new owner/operator of Citrus Memorial as a result of both the hospital governing board and foundation board giving final approval to a contract. HCA will pay $127 million up front for a 50-year lease of the property and have an option for another 25 years. The agreement protects the community and hospital employees from a looming financial disaster at the Inverness-based public hospital. In the contract, HCA agrees to operate the facility as an acute care hospital for at least 15 years and to employ current staff members for at least one year (unless they fail a drug test or cant meet HCA employment standards.) Obstetrics care will be continued for at least seven years. From the communitys standpoint, HCA will not receive any tax subsidy and instead will pay property taxes as a private business. An advisory board of citizens and medical staff physicians will be established by HCA to assist. The proceeds from the sale will eventually be funneled into a community trust foundation that will use proceeds from the investment of the principal to fund community health projects. By contract, those funds cannot be used to establish competitive businesses to the hospital. A foundation board will be established to allocate those funds and at least two members of that board will be elected by the voters of Citrus County. Both the governing board and foundation board also agreed that they will not do anything in the future to compete against HCA within 30 miles of the hospital. With that said, the debate over the policies and practices at Citrus Memorial will become mute. HCA is a private business and it will operate in a fashion that makes the most sense for its stockholders. HCA won agreement from both boards that future disputes will be settled through negotiations or arbitration as opposed to lawsuits. Officials with the private company recognize that Citrus County seems to have an unusual appetite for very expensive legal proceedings and they would like to do whatever they can to avoid that. The final agreement will come on Sept. 12 after details are worked out with the medical staff on bylaw changes and a new agreement with Citrus Cardiovascular Services Associates can be reached. Those issues are said to be in the works. The conclusion to this wild ride should come shortly. Millions of dollars have been wasted on legal fees and everyone has been distracted from the facilitys core mission of providing care to this community. Once completed, maybe some real healing can begin for all of the stakeholders at Citrus Memorial hospital. THE ISSUE:Hospital contract nears completion.OUR OPINION:Time to move on.

Public agencies including Citrus County Animal Services and the Citrus County Sheriffs Office will also be represented. Last years event was wildly successful, Josh Wooten, chamber president/chief executive officer, said. Its what businesses have told us they want, an opportunity to get their word out in a one-on-one setting. He said there will be at least 60 exhibitors. And this years expo will bring back the popular money machine where three lucky visitors will get the opportunity to step inside and grab as much cash as they can, within time constraints. The chamber is stocking the machine with $2,000. The countys animal adoption bus will return, hoping to top last years placement of four shelter dogs. The sponsors for the expo are: Awareness Marketing, Bailey Electrical Contracting, Mike Scott Plumbing, Citrus County Chronicle, Citrus 95.3 and 96.7 The Fox, BAAI-Florida Blue, Mike Bays Allstate Insurance,, Audibel Hearing Centers, Inverness Yoga & Wellness Center, Hometown Values, the Village Crierand Plantation on Crystal River.

Net proceeds will be given to a charitable trust to spend on health care needs of the countys indigent. CCHB attorney Bill Grant said the central question is whether the transaction lease, not sale meets criteria in the law that governs the sale or lease of public hospitals to private corporations. The legal difference between lease and sale is critical. A sale would require the proceeds be split: 50 percent to the county commission for health care economic development and 50 percent to the hospital board for low-income hospital care within the county. Grant said the CCHB would have to divide its split evenly with Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center and Citrus Memorial, meaning HCA would recoup a large chunk of the money it paid. The formal attorney generals opinion is considered the final hurdle of the HCA transaction, other than state regulatory approval and final signatures by all parties. The closing is scheduled for Oct. 31. Wanting to avoid a possible post-closing legal challenge, HCA asked attorneys for CCHB and the foundation to provide written opinions that the transaction follows state law. HCA then decided, instead, on an attorney generals opinion so that it, too, could make sure its possible plans for the Citrus Memorial Health Systems property would not violate the state law. The questions will be sent Thursday to Bondi. Meanwhile, Grant said he will ask the county commission on Tuesday, Sept. 9, for its support of the agreement with HCA and the charitable trust guidelines. County Commissioner Joe Meek, who meets regularly with Grant, foundation attorney Clark Stillwell and ChroniclePublisher Gerry Mulligan to discuss the trusts framework, invited Grant to make a presentation. He has asked Grant to provide the county with all documents and backup material for commissioners to review prior to Tuesdays meeting.

The Delta flight from New York to West Palm Beach was diverted on Monday night to Jacksonville, where the woman was removed and the citys Airport Authority investigated. Amy Fine, 32, of Boca Raton was resting her head on her tray table when the passenger ahead of her reclined the seat, according to the agencys report. The table hit Fines head, she told investigators, and witnesses said the two passengers began arguing.UF reports record donationsGAINESVILLE The University of Florida said it was given a record $215.3 million from donors in the last fiscal year. University officials said its the second year in a row that Florida was given cash and cash-equivalent donations in excess of $210 million. The fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30. Last year Florida launched a major fundraising push to raise $800 million over a three-year period to push up the universitys ranking among the nations best public research universities. It is the only Florida school that is a member of prestigious Association of American Universities. State BRIEFS From wire reports Scott calls militants evil in journalist killing Associated PressNAPLES Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Tuesday called Islamic State militants evil and demanded that President Barack Obama destroy them after a video surfaced purporting to show the beheading of freelance journalist Seven Sotloff who has ties to the state. Scott launched a two-week reelection bus tour on Labor Day and planned on Tuesday to hold his second political rally of the day at a hardware store. But during the stop Scott said he was canceling the event and instead asked supporters to give a moment of silence to Sotloff. The Republican governor then criticized Obama for not having a strategy to respond to the militants that he called immoral and barbarians. Hes got to start taking this seriously, we have got to destroy this evil, Scott said. Sotloff has ties to Florida. His mother lives in the Miami area, and he attended the University of Central Florida from 2002 to 2004. Sotloffs mother released a video statement last week begging the militants to release her son. He had been kidnapped over a year ago while working as a freelance reporter covering the Syrian conflict. UCF President John Hitt said Tuesday that university officials join millions of people around the world who are outraged at this despicable and unjustifiable act. Other Florida leaders on Tuesday also reacted to the news about Sotloff. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson said in a statement that the United States must go after the militants right away because the U.S. is the only one that can put together a coalition to stop this group thats intent on barbaric cruelty. He also said he is filing legislation to give Obama clear authority to carry out airstrikes against the militants. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio called Sotloff a man of enormous courage and decency. As Steven was a native of Florida, my office has been in contact with his family throughout their ordeal, and today my heart goes out to all who loved him as they make the painful transition from fear to grief, Rubio said in a statement. Rubio added that the Islamic State militants represented a threat to the American people, our allies, and the principles of freedom and human rights that we cherish. Rick Scottdemanded President Obama destroy Islamic State militants.


Study links chills to melting ice Associated PressWASHINGTON Remember the polar vortex, the huge mass of Arctic air that can plunge much of the U.S. into the deep freeze? You might have to get used to it. A new study states that, as the world gets warmer, parts of North America, Europe and Asia could see more frequent and stronger visits of that cold air. Researchers say thats because of shrinking ice in the seas off Russia. Normally, the polar vortex is penned in the Arctic. But at times it escapes and wanders south, bringing with it a bit of Arctic super chill. That can happen for several reasons, and the new study suggests that one of them occurs when ice in northern seas shrinks, leaving more water uncovered. Normally, sea ice keeps heat energy from escaping the ocean and entering the atmosphere. When theres less ice, more energy gets into the atmosphere and weakens the jet stream, the high-altitude river of air that usually keeps Arctic air from wandering south, said study coauthor Jin-Ho Yoon of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Washington. So the cold air escapes instead. That happened relatively infrequently in the 1990s, but since 2000 it has happened nearly every year, according to a study published Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications. A team of scientists from South Korea and United States found that many such cold outbreaks happened a few months after unusually low sea ice levels in the Barents and Kara seas, off Russia. The study observed historical data and then conducted computer simulations. Both approaches showed the same strong link between shrinking sea ice and cold outbreaks, according to lead author Baek-Min Kim, a research scientist at the Korea Polar Research Institute. A large portion of sea ice melting is driven by man-made climate change from the burning of fossil fuels, Kim wrote in an email. Sea ice in the Arctic usually hits its low mark in September and thats the crucial time point in terms of this study, said Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colorado. Levels reached a record low in 2012 and are slightly up this year, but only temporarily, with minimum ice extent still about 40percent below 1970s levels, he said. Traveling Associated PressPresident Barack Obama waves Tuesday as he boards Air Force One before leaving from Andrews Air Force Base, Md., for a trip to Estonia. Obama attends NATO summitWASHINGTON Confronted by a Kremlinbacked military offensive in Ukraine, President Barack Obama and Western allies will approve plans this week to position at least 4,000 troops and military equipment in Eastern Europe, bolstering NATOs security commitments to nervous member states near the Russian border. Ahead of a high-stakes NATO summit that begins Thursday, Obama will also make a symbolic show of solidarity with Eastern Europe when he visits Estonia for meetings with Baltic leaders. He was due to arrive in the Estonian capital of Tallinn this morning. Russias months-long conflict with Ukraine comes at a time when members of the NATO defense alliance have been cutting military spending and reassessing the organizations role after years of peace in Europe. While Ukraine is not part of NATO, alliance members in Eastern and Central Europe fear they could be Russias next targets, prompting the 28-nation bloc to seek a more robust response.Police: Teens slaying randomINDIANAPOLIS A 15year-old Indianapolis girl whose burned body was found over the weekend was likely abducted and killed by someone she didnt know, police and family members said Tuesday. Dominique Allens death was a homicide resulting from asphyxiation, Marion County Chief Deputy Coroner Alfarena Ballew ruled Tuesday. A man walking his dog found Allens body in his backyard on the citys near northwest side Sunday, police said. At this time, we believe it was random, Indianapolis Metro Police Detective Marcus Kennedy said, adding that Dominique Allen was dead before her body was burned.Autistic girls mom pleads guiltyTRAVERSE CITY, Mich. A northern Michigan woman accused of trying to kill her autistic 14-year-old daughter after describing in an online blog the familys struggles to raise her pleaded guilty Tuesday to first-degree child abuse. Kelli Stapleton, 46, entered the plea the day before she was scheduled for trial in Benzie County Circuit Court on a charge of attempted murder a year after police said she drove daughter Isabelle to an isolated spot, gave her sleepinducing medication and ignited charcoal in two grills inside a van, intending to kill both of them. Isabelle has recovered after suffering carbonmonoxide poisoning that left her in a coma for several days, county prosecutor Sara Swanson said. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A10WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Separatists rout Ukrainian troops NOVOKATERYNIVKA, Ukraine The ferocity of the attack on the fleeing Ukrainian troops was clear, days after the ambush by Russian-backed separatist forces. More than 30 military vehicles lay in charred piles Tuesday. Villagers said dozens were killed, and some remained unburied. One soldier was blown out of his armored vehicle apparently by a shell his body left dangling from power lines high above. The rout early Sunday near the village of Novokaterynivka marked a major intensification in the rebel offensive, one that the Ukrainian government, NATO and the United States say has been sustained by Russias direct military support. A leaked report said European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said President Vladimir Putin told him that Russia could take over Kiev in two weeks if it wished.US strike targets extremist groupMOGADISHU, Somalia U.S. airstrikes in Somalia may have killed the leader of the Islamic extremist group al-Shabab, with a militant commander saying Tuesday that he was in a car that was struck and that six people died. The leader, Ahmed Abdi Godane, has no heir apparent. If he has been killed, it would be a significant blow to al-Shababs organization and abilities, said U.S. Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby, a Pentagon spokes man, who confirmed the strikes targeting Godane. But Godanes death could also lead the group to ditch its association with alQaida and align itself with the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq, analysts said. Al-Shabab gained international notoriety a year ago this month when it attacked the upscale Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, killing at least 67 people.Group says world losing Ebola fightUNITED NATIONS The international group Doctor Without Borders warned Tuesday that the world is losing the battle against Ebola and lamented that treatment centers in West Africa have been reduced to places where people go to die alone. In separate remarks after a United Nations meeting on the crisis, the World Health Organization chief said everyone involved had underestimated the outbreak, which has now killed more than 1,500 people in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria. U.N. officials implored governments worldwide to send medical workers and material contributions. Meanwhile in Liberia, a missionary organization announced that another American doctor has become infected. World BRIEFS From wire reports Some fear auto industry returning to bad habits Associated PressDETROIT Big discounts. Sixor seven-year loans, in some cases to buyers who would have been turned down in the past. As the auto industry strives to sustain its post-recession comeback, car companies are resorting to tactics that some experts warn will lead to trouble down the road. Vehicle discounts have risen 5.5percent from a year ago. More than a quarter of new buyers are choosing to lease, a historically highpercentage. Auto company lending arms are making more loans to people with low credit scores. The industry is adding factory capacity. And the average price of a car keeps rising, forcing some customers to borrow for longer terms to keep payments down. Annual auto sales in the U.S. should top 16million for the first time in seven years. But the pentup consumer demand that has driven sales is ebbing. Sales are predicted to grow 5.5percent this year, the slowest pace since the financial crisis. The big discounts and other steps eventually should help push sales above 17million, most experts say. But Honda Motor Co. U.S. sales chief John Mendel last week scolded competitors for using short-term tactics such as subprime loans, 72-month terms and increased sales to rental car companies to pad their sales. We have no desire to go there, said Mendel, whose companys sales through July have fallen 1.3percent, trailing the industry. Some on Wall Street see a price to pay. It could be a disaster later on, says Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas. Were clearly robbing Peter to pay Paul. He sees sales growing to an annual rate of 18million in 2017 then sinking to 14million a year later. That will mean factory closings, restructurings, and thousands of job cuts just for companies to break even. Not all forecasts are that dire and no one not even Jonas is predicting a repeat of billiondollar losses and cars piling up on dealer lots. Automakers have cut costs and are better positioned to handle a downturn than they were in 2008 and 2009. All automakers report sales on Wednesday, and most analysts are predicting the numbers will be flatcompared to 2013. Thats still a strong month, with an annual sales rate of 16.5million or more. Its no longer safe to recline your airplane seat Associated PressNEW YORK Squeezed into tighter and tighter spaces, airline passengers appear to be rebelling, taking their frustrations out on other fliers. Three U.S. flights made unscheduled landings in the past eight days after passengers got into fights over the ability to recline their seats. Disputes over a tiny bit of personal space might seem petty, but for passengers whose knees are already banging into tray tables, every inch counts. Seats are getting closer together, said Sara Nelson, president of the Association of Flight Attend ants, which represents 60,000 flight attendants at 19 airlines. We have to de-escalate conflict all the time. There are fights over overhead bin space, legroom and where to put winter coats. We havent hit the end of it, Nelson said. The conditions continue to march in a direction that will lead to more and more conflict. Airlines today are juggling terror warnings in Britain, the Ebola outbreak in Africa and an Icelandic volcano erupting and threatening to close down European airspace. Yet the issue of disruptive passengers has captured the worlds attention. Its getting to the point where the pre-flight safety videos need an additional warning: Be nice to your neighbor. The International Air Transport Association calls unruly passengers an escalating problem, saying there was one incident for every 1,300 flights in the past three years. The trade group would not share detailed historical data to back up the assertion that this is a growing problem. Todays flying experience is far from glamorous. Passengers wait in long lines for security screening, push and shove at the gate to be first on board and then fight for the limited overhead bin space. They are already agitated by the time they arrive at their row and see how cramped it is. To boost their profits, airlines have been adding more rows of seats to planes in the past few years. Southwest and United both took away one inch from each row on certain jets to make room for six more seats. American is increasing the number of seats on its Boeing 737800s from 150 to 160. Delta installed new, smaller toilets in its 737-900s, enabling it to squeeze in an extra four seats. And to make room for a first-class cabin with lie-flat beds on its transcontinental flights, JetBlue reduced the distance between coach seats by one inch. Airlines say passengers wont notice because the seats are being redesigned to create a sense of more space.

RISAK CorrespondentINVERNESS The last time these two volleyball teams met in this gym, it required a major comeback by Gainesville Eastside to eke out a win. And Citrus suffered the consequences. Both teams have changed since then, each losing a large portion of their lineups from a year ago. But one thing hasnt changed: The result. In a rematch from last seasons regional playoff a match in which Citrus led by two sets and was ahead in the third before falling mistakes plagued the Hurricanes and aided a Rams team that didnt need any help. Eastside pulled away to a four-set triumph, 25-18, 16-25, 25-16, 25-16 Tuesday at Citrus. Its all about defense and we need to up our serve reception so we can run our offense, was how Citrus coach Sandy VanDervort described her teams performance. When we can run our offense, were successful. Not much did go well for the Hurricanes, who slipped to 1-2 for the season. In the opening set, once Eastside pulled away from a 4-4 tie to open up a 9-4 advantage, Citrus never caught up. Heather Page and Maggie Carnes did most of the damage for the Rams with their strong attacks and blocks at the net, something Citrus could not answer. Unlike last years regional showdown, there would be no comebacks this time.

What Monfils has never done, despite all his talent and in some cases, because he has appeared to value style over substance right there on court, in the middle of a point, preferring the spectacular to the sufficient is reach a Grand Slam final. He took a step closer Tuesday at the U.S. Open during a surprisingly matter-of-fact 7-5, 7-6 (6), 7-5 victory in the fourth round over No. 7-seeded Grigor Dimitrov, a man considered one of the sports up-and-comers. The 20th-seeded Frenchman will face Roger Federer for a spot in the semifinals. Federer advanced to the U.S. Open quarterfinals for the 10th time in 11 years by eliminating 17th-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 Tuesday night. Federer won the point on 35 of 52 trips to the net. The other quarterfinal matchup on that half of the draw will be No. 6 Tomas Berdych against No. 14 Marin Cilic. Berdych beat 20-year-old Dominic Thiem 6-1, 6-2, 6-4; Cilic was a 5-7, 7-6 (3), 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 winner against No. 26 Gilles Simon, who was treated for a back problem early on. In womens quarterfinals Tuesday, 39thranked Peng Shuai of China ended the precocious run of 17-year-old Belinda Belic of Switzerland 6-2, 6-1. Pengs next opponent will be No. 10 Caroline Wozniacki, the 2009 U.S. Open runner-up, who overwhelmed No. 13 Sara Errani 6-0, 6-1 in a wind-whipped match Tuesday night.

So I told them the story about last year and reminded them about what we came in and did to them, something to motivate them. So we just came in trying to work our hardest, we expected it to be a good match, we expected it to be our toughest match yet. I told them to work their hardest and wed make adjustments as we needed. That part of the match certainly favored Eastside, since there were no real adjustments the Hurricanes could do to offset the play of Page and Carnes. In the opening set alone, the pair combined for nine kills one strong reason Citrus never got closer than two after the Rams opening surge. Combined with eight errors on either serve receive, kills out of bounds or misplayed chances, it was difficult for Citrus stay in contention. But the Hurricanes did mount a second-set comeback, dominating play from nearly start to finish. Early runs on serves by Morgan Cleary and Alicia Breviario staked Citrus to a 7-4 lead, and this time it was Eastside that never caught up. With Ram errors to piling up, it was the Hurricanes turn to pull away. But Citrus could not maintain any momentum. In the third set alone, the Canes committed five service errors. It didnt improve any the fourth. At least it gave VanDervort something to concentrate on. We are going to work on our serve receive, she said. And I have to get my hitters to hit harder. Theyre good at hitting cross (court), but they need to hit harder. No time like the present for a crash course the 5A-6 season starts next Thursday. CITRUSContinued from Page B1 Its all right, he said. I am close. Its off the tee is my struggle. My scrambling, putting and short games are what save me. Off the tee, I have no idea where its going. I hit two fairways all day. I hold myself to high expectations. Its frustrating when I can do so much better. Kyle Velasco is stepping up huge with his first three matches. He is lights out. The Pirate coach was happy with this round. Kyle Velasco was under 40 for the third time in a row, Pirate coach Jere DeFore said. Kyle Kidd had another fine round today. DeFore didnt see the delay as a problem for his team. I dont think so, he said. They were pretty loose waiting. These kids all know each other. Citrus also found some positives Tuesday. Thats the lowest round that Brennen has ever shot, Citrus coach Larry Bishop said. He had a good day. Overall, we asked the kids to play around 180. We were at 184. We have a little work to do. We are on pace where we want to be. The Pirates will face Springstead High on Thursday at World Woods. Citrus will face South Sumter High in Sumter County. BOLTContinued from Page B1 Pirate spikers outlast Belleview in thrillerAn ace serve by Haley Coleman that hit the net and trickled over ended a thrilling five-set victory for the Crystal River volleyball team Tuesday night at Belleview. The Pirates raced out to a 2-0 lead with wins of 25-10 and 30-28 in the first two sets. The Rattlers rattled off game wins of 17-25 and 9-25 to send the match to a fifth and deciding game, where the Pirates prevailed, 15-13. Coleman also had 15 digs to go along with her winning ace. Kaite Eichler had 22 digs and 18 assists, Cassidy Wardlow added 10 kills, 12 digs and two blocks, Kaylan Simms had six kills, seven digs and an incredible 15 blocks and Abby Epstein chipped in eight kills, six digs, 10 blocks and four ace serves. The Pirates (3-1) return to action Thursday at home against West Port.A&M jumps, FSU, Bama lose support in AP pollNEW YORK Texas A&M makes a big jump in the AP Top 25 after the most impressive performance of the opening weekend of college football. Florida State and Alabama lost some support in the first poll of the regular season after close victories against heavy underdogs. The Aggies moved up 12 spots to No. 9 in the poll released Tuesday. Texas A&M began the post-Johnny Manziel era with a 52-28 victory at South Carolina. The loss dropped the Gamecocks from ninth to No. 21. The top four in the rankings are unchanged: Florida State, Alabama, Oregon and Oklahoma. Florida State went from 57 first-place votes to 46 after pulling out a 37-31 victory against Oklahoma State. Alabama dropped 44 points in the media-panel voting after beating West Virginia. The Tide has one first-place vote. Oregon has five and Oklahoma two.

Wes Welker is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFLs performance-enhancing drug policy, according to published reports. ESPN reported the violation had to do with amphetamines. The Broncos didnt immediately return a message from The Associated Press requesting comment Tuesday. NFL Media reported Welker was notified Tuesday he had lost his appeal, which was heard two weeks ago. Welker returned to practice Monday for the first time since suffering a concussion Aug. 23. It was his third concussion in 10 months.From staff and wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

Get Ten 18 Hole Rounds For Only $ 20 00 Get Ten 18 Hole Rounds For Only $ 20 00 000J6LK LocalLEADERS Associated PressNEW YORK U.S. captain Tom Watson went with experience and a gut feeling Tuesday night when he filled out his Ryder Cup team with Keegan Bradley, Hunter Mahan and Webb Simpson. Not so valuable was recent success. He left out Chris Kirk, who finished higher in the final Ryder Cup standings than Simpson, and who won the Deutsche Bank Championship a day earlier by going head-to-head with Rory McIlroy the final 36 holes. That was a snapshot, Watson said of his decision not to take Kirk. The other two choices were not surprising. Even though Bradley has not won a tournament in two years and missed out by three spots qualifying on his own, he has raw power suited for this event and won all three matches in a partnership with Phil Mickelson two years ago at Medinah. Mahan is the only pick who has been on a winning team, though he is associated more with the wrenching emotion that losing brings. Mahan was in the decisive match four years ago at Wales when Graeme McDowell made all the right shots in another European victory. Mahan was left off the 2012 team, even though he narrowly missed qualifying. Whomever he chose, Watsons message was clear. The Ryder Cup, to be played Sept. 26-28 at Gleneagles, is all about redemption. The Americans were poised to win at Medinah two years ago when they took a 10-6 lead into the final day, only for Ian Poulter, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia and Martin Kaymer to deliver key putts and big comebacks that allowed Europe to retain the cup. Europe has won seven of the last nine times, and it will be heavily favored in Scotland. Earlier Tuesday, at the European Tour headquarters in Wentworth, captain Paul McGinley selected Poulter, Lee Westwood and Stephen Gallacher, who will be 39 when he makes his Ryder Cup debut in his home country. Bradley said last week at the Deutsche Bank Championship there wasnt a moment that he was not thinking about the Ryder Cup. He feared being left off the team when he finished his round on Monday, and shared an emotional hug with his girlfriend when Watson gave him the good news. I made no secret how badly I want to go back and win the Ryder Cup, he said. This is a redemption year for a lot of guys who were on the team last year. Bradley and Simpson are among seven players who were on that U.S. team that was on the losing end of the Miracle at Medinah. The others are Jim Furyk, Zach Johnson, Matt Kuchar, Mickelson and Bubba Watson. The U.S. captain will be 65 when he leads his team, the oldest captain in history. Watson last was at the helm in 1993 at The Belfry, which is also the last time the Americans won the Ryder Cup in Europe. Tom Watson fills out his Ryder Cup team Hunter Mahan


EDUCATIONSection CWEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE JOE DUBE/Special to the ChronicleThe physical education course at the Academy of Environmental Science is not your typical high school class. Students take advantage of their surroundings and head outdoors to kayak, canoe, hike the marsh and much more. Academy of Environmental Science among best of Florida schools ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerNavigating 6 miles west on the winding Fort Island Trail, travelers are led to a marsh-like environment surrounded with tropical vegetation and brackish water. Nestled in this beauty is a unique,stilted school where local students think outside the box and use their scenic surroundings to better understand their academics. It is listed as the Academy of Environmental Science,but many call it home. We are a public charter high school tuition free,said administrator Ben Stofcheck. Students from grades nine through 12 attend our school and come from the other Citrus County high schools. However, when they get out here,they become a close-knit family. Not to be confused with the Marine Science Station, the AES is also sponsored by the Citrus County School District,but houses students for semesters at a time. The school started offering its in 1999. We have the same calendar, same holidays,Stofcheck said. We are employed by Citrus County School District. We follow all of their rules and guidelines. With 116 students currently enrolled, Stofcheck said there is a waiting listing of 50 to 120 kids every year. Just what makes the AES program so desirable and what contributes to its high ranking in the state? Stofcheck cited a number of factors. Student attraction For many students, the environment surrounding AES is an added advantage to their family-like school. The environment, setting attracts students here,Stofcheck said. Also, it is not overcrowded. We have a small teaching staff and they get to know each other real well. We focus on trying to make subject materials relevant and hands-on to the real world for the kids. They still have quizzes and tests. They get graduation credits just as if they were at their base high school. But the first thing kids will tell you is that they will miss the family. They get to know each other, help each other and work together as a family. Physical education The AES premise is too small for a gymnasium; therefore, students use their surroundings for physical education. To get physical education we do outdoor education, which gives them that physical education credit,Stofcheck said. That includes canoeing, kayaking, hiking in the marsh looking at the environment and more. All of our students taking physical education have a mesh bag downstairs where they have a change of clothes and shoes just in case they tip over in the kayaks or canoes,he said. We have some showers (so they can) rinse off and change clothes. Graduation rates Because we dont have enough facilities to offer all of the courses,we dont give diplomas,Stofcheck said. We give them a certificate of completion. However, they all graduate and walk back at their base high school. Our graduation rate is 100 percent. Lunch time Students have 30 minutes,Stofcheck said. We have a room that doubles as a lunchroom and cafeteria, when needed. There are microwaves and refrigerators. Most students bring their lunch; however, we do have students on freeor reduced-school lunches. They have the option of having their lunches delivered every morning from Crystal River High School by bus. Students are welcome to eat in the cafeteria; however, good weather days find them wandering outside to the picnic tables or the dock by the water. I tell the kids to relax and forget about school for a half an hour,he said. Go enjoy time with your friends and enjoy the gorgeous scenery. We have had dolphins and manatees that come up during lunch hour. And it is a privilege and they know that. If I see them feeding the animals or putting trash in the water they are going to lose that privilege. I have never had to take it away. Transportation Citrus County School District supplies buses, parents drop (them) off or some older students drive,Stofcheck said. There is limited parking out here. I wish I could let everyone park out here,but there is just no room for parking. Sports JOE DUBE/Special to the ChronicleOne of the top high schools in Florida, the Academy of Environmental Science in Crystal River is a charter school sponsored by the Citrus County School District. See OUTSIDE/ Page C2 AES was selected twice as one of the Best High Sc hools in the United States by U.S. News & World Report. Gov. Rick Scott sent a personal message to the sc hool congratulating them on ranking No. 2 out of 451 high schools and No. 4 out of 3,127 schools in Florida. During the 2012/13 school year, AES students wer e 100 percent proficient in biology; 90 percent proficient in algebra 1. At the 2012 Regional Science Fair, all 10 high sc hool projects selected for State Science Fair Completion were by AES students.AES FAST FACTS For more photos, click on this story at www.chronicle


C2WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER3, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE EDUCATION Sports Students arrive back at their base schools by 2:20 p.m. so they are able to ride buses home,he said. But this also allows them to play on athletic teams and participate in extracurricular activities. I have a couple of students right now playing on the Crystal River football team. It is a nice combination for the kids,as they dont have to give up all of the connections to come out here. Over-the-counter meds At our orientation we told the kids that if they wanted to be out on the water,then they needed to apply sunscreen before they leave home, Stofcheck said. We try to follow all rules of the Citrus County School District. Not the Marine Science Station Because we are a school and we have students, we earn FTE (full-time equivalent) funding from the state, he said. Marine Science does not,because they do not have students housed there on a permanent basis. Groups come out and do a lot of neat stuff and go back to their main school that evening. They are not housed there as a course. He emphasized that AES and MSS have a friendly relationship. Im glad it is open because there are so many kids in this county that have never been out on the water to have an appreciation for this environment,Stofcheck said. We are always working together. If they need a kayak for the day,we lend them ours. Or if we need one of their boats,they lend them to us. We have a great working relationship. Ideal student for AES We get students who love the outdoors and just dont feel comfortable in the larger settings of their base high school,he said. They feel comfortable here; like they belong. Also, with us being a small school it allows the teachers to have a more one-onone relationship with the students. We are here, come see us at open house (in the spring), check out our website and see if you are interested in attending the academy,he said. We are here, have been successful and we would love to have you.Contact Chronicle education reporter Eryn Worthington at 352563-5660, ext. 1334, or eworthington OUTSIDEContinued from Page C1 Special to the ChronicleThe Citrus Hi-Five Program is a partnership between Eckerd Youth Alternatives, Partners for a Substance-Free Citrus, Lecanto Middle School and Inverness Middle School, and will focus on addressing underage drinking and substance use through the provision of evidence-based substance abuse prevention curricula Too Good for Drugsand Too Good for Drugs and Violence. Designed to target all sixthgrade students at Lecanto and Inverness middle schools, the Citrus Hi-Five Program will deliver weekly classroom-based curriculum called Too Good for Drugsto an estimated 600 students in these two schools combined. In addition, students at greatest risk of underage drinking and other drug use will be selected to participate in smaller, more intensive group interventions utilizing the Too Good for Drugs and Violencecurriculum. The program will also work to increase parental awareness of the use/abuse of alcohol and other drugs by underage youths through the coordination and delivery of family workshops. In addition, Citrus Hi-Five will work with the Anti-Drug Coalition of Citrus to implement a proven social marketing plan called Friday Night Done Rightwhich provides positive messaging to youths for abstaining from alcohol and other drugs. The objective is to increase knowledge among youths of the dangers of alcohol and other drug abuse and to reframe a positive social norm of abstinence from substances. Special to the ChronicleThe summer reading program at the Citrus County Library System was a tremendous success. Throughout the course of the summer, children actually had one chance per week during an eight-week span to enter their names for a bike drawing that would be held at the end of the summer. Wal-Mart of Homosassa donated five bikes one for each of the branches. The summer reading program came to an end and the five winners were: Lila Ouellette, Central Ridge; Isabella Schultes, Coastal Region; Caleb Osborne, Floral City; Aliesah Velez, Homosassa; and Shaelin Ball, Lakes Region. Summer reading program winners Too Good for drugs, violence program targets students Special to the ChronicleDan Heavrin of Crystal River Beef OBradys awards a $500 check for the Citrus County Gator Clubs Scholarship Fund to club President Mike DeLucia and President-elect Bob Padgett. The Citrus County Gator Club is dedicated to awarding each year a $1,000 scholarship to a University of Florida-bound senior from each of Citrus Countys three public high schools. As part of its fundraising efforts, the Citrus County Gator Club hosts indoor tailgate parties at Beefs for away Florida football games. The fun begins Sept. 20, when the Gators play Alabama. The Gator bench displayed below the check will be raffled off during the football season. Raffle tickets can be purchased at Beefs. Gator Club Scholarship donation Enrollment is up for Citrus school district ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerEnrollment numbers are slightly up from projections for the school district and officials believe it proves to be a good start to a successful year. We are still enrolling kids, believe it or not, said Mike Mullen, assistant superintendent of school operations. From what we projected to what we have enrolled, we have about 30 more students from what we anticipated. We are off to a good start. Each year, Citrus County School District officials estimate the projected number of students that will be attending so they can set staffing plans. Trends, the economy and census date all come into play. Some of the new students that we enrolled were kids moving in with grandparents, Mullen said. But there isnt anything that we are aware of that is attracting new families to our area as far as career opportunities. BEHIND THE NUMBERS Citrus County School District officials projected 14,550 pupils for the 2014-15 school year. Three weeks after the first day of school, they are reporting 14,584 students have enrolled. Last year, at this time, 14,633 pupilswere enrolled in the CCSD.

A couple of elementary schools missed their mark, he said. We have had a lot of kindergartners show up at the last minute. No matter how much effort we put into getting parents to enroll their students early, there are always parents who wait until school starts. We try to go on past history, but kindergarten is the hardest grade level to project. But not every elementary school missed its projected mark. Mullen said there were a couple of schools with two or three more kindergarteners registered than permitted by state mandates. The state classroom size amendment sets mandatory maximum limits on classes. The limit is 18 in kindergarten through third grade, 22 students in fourth through eighth grade and 25 in high school. Therefore, officials are in the process of distribution of students and/or teachers. So, we have to look to whether we want to add another teaching unit when that number of students wont pay for another teacher. Or do we come up with another creative idea that would meet the mandate, Mullen said. Every situation is different. It all depends on the students that we have and what grade level we are in. There really is no magic formula. Whatever we do will be what is best for the kids. Nonetheless, Mullen is positive that the 2014-15 school year will be a successful year for Citrus County students. We feel like we got off to a pretty good start, he said. Other school districts are just starting. Some of us might hate to start early, but when you hear about other schools just starting you say, Gee, Im glad we have three weeks under our belts.

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

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

The defense tries to prevent the offense from doing so. To move closer to the end zone, a team has four chances, or downs, to move the ball 10 yards. If the offense moves the ball at least 10 yards, it gains a new set of downs. The line of scrimmage (SKRIHmej) is an imaginary line where the football is placed.

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

Roaring s come alive Special to the ChronicleA normal day at the Nature Coast Lodge is filled with bingo, exercise and relaxation but Friday, Aug. 15, was no ordinary day. On this afternoon, a professional casino company carried in its slot machines and gaming tables, a caterer filled the air with delicious smells and the sounds of smooth jazz poured out of the building, urging the flappers and gangsters lingering around the parking area to come in to play. The building filled with guys and gals dressed to a T, ready to bet against the odds all in the name of charity. Residents and guests alike laughed and played games. They even danced in the lobby while helping to raise more than $3,000 for The Alzheimers Family Organization. This event, hosted by Nature Coast Lodge and Shipp Shape Promotions, turned out to be not only a great fundraiser, but we were able to bring awareness to the community about all that our organization has to offer, said John Winans, community relations manager for the Alzheimers Family Organization. The Alzheimers Family Organization is a locally based nonprofit organization. All money donated to the cause will be used locally to provide respite care reimbursement, educational and support services. Guests were not treated to a special round of poker by local celebrity dealer, Leon McClellan, but they were given the opportunity to try and win raffle prizes such as a kayak donated by Sodium Fishing Gear, gift certificates from area restaurants, manatee tours, paddle board rentals and more. Casino Night was a huge success, said Susan Shipp, event chairperson. I had people asking me to do this every month. Shipp has agreed to organize the event annually to benefit various charities around the community, and the next charity has already been chosen. For 2015, Casino Night will benefit Hospice of Citrus and the Nature Coast.

C8WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER3, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Ernest Dimnet, a French priest, writer and lecturer who wrote The Art of Thinking and died in 1954, said, Education is the methodical creation of the habit of thinking. How true why didnt we think of that? When I teach a class, I try to get my students to think like bridge players, not to bid the first thing that comes into their minds or to play the card nearest their thumbs. This deal from a social game is instructive. What do you think of the auction? What should happen in four hearts after West leads the spade king? North was right to respond two clubs, Stayman. If South had replied two diamonds, North would have rebid two hearts, showing a weak major two-suiter with no game aspirations. When South bid two hearts, though, North should have passed. And South, with a minimum 15 high-card points, ought to have passed out three hearts. In four hearts, South probably has to play the trump suit without loss. To do that, he can either cash dummys ace, playing West for a singleton king, or lead his queen, hoping East has a singleton jack. They are mathematically equal, but leading the queen is better because West might fail to cover with king-doubleton. However, before that, South won the first trick and returned his second spade. Here, West defended perfectly, winning with his queen and shifting to a club. However, when declarer won with his ace and led the heart queen, West erred by playing low, so the contract made.

A lot of married people do, because marriage can become routine, and an old flame adds excitement. But you need to live up to the commitment you made to your husband to forsake all others. Having an affair would hurt him terribly and possibly lead to divorce. Put some of that extra energy into reigniting the passion in your marriage. If you cannot do that, please consider counseling so you can remember why you married in the first place. Dear Annie: Two years ago, my mother was diagnosed with cancer. Mom has spent her life doing whatever she wants, living wherever it suits her and treating people however she chooses, like it or not. She considers herself a free spirit. My brother resents the fact that Mom has hardly been a part of our lives since we were little kids. Mom recently moved in with an ex-husband because she doesnt like the available rental places. Shes spent her life manipulating people to get what she wants, and most of the family has distanced themselves from her. As a result, I feel guilty that shes so alone and send her money from time to time, whether or not I can afford it. Everyone asks why Im so susceptible to her manipulations, including my father, my brother and all of my friends. I am mad at myself, too, yet I just sent her more money because her new housemate mailed me a bill for $300 to help pay for their heat in August. This man has a long history of stealing from me even when I was a teenager. I think I may have simply paid for his propane gas for the winter. Should I just keep giving or let her lie in the bed she has made for herself like everyone I know has said I should? H. Dear H.: Please listen to your own feelings instead of the people around you. Giving her money makes you feel like a sap, but if you dont, you feel guilty. And with everyone telling you what an easy mark you are, it only compounds your confusion. We know you care about your mother in spite of her selfishness. This is actually less about Mom and more about you. If giving her money now and then makes you feel better about yourself, its fine to continue, but we dont recommend you advertise your generosity to your friends and family. And if you decide that your kindness is money down the drain and unappreciated, its OK to stop. Theres no reason to feel guilty when you are being taken advantage of. Dear Annie: This is in response to the letter from California, who claimed a felony could never be expunged under California law. This is not true. Many nonviolent felony convictions are subject to expungement, and it is a fairly easy process.
