The country was still grieving the death of President John F. Kennedy. His successor, President Lyndon B. Johnson, launched an investigation into the assassination of the 35th president. That was the same year President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. received the Nobel Peace Prize. Those significant events in American history, however, coincided with the phenomenon that became known as pop culture. Among those considered the fashionistas of the era were Jayne Mansfield, Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, Sophia Loren, Doris Day and Annette Funicello. Fashion designers Andr Courrges and Mary Quant introduced JULIE MANCINI/Special to the ChronicleCecil McLeod stands next to his 1966 Mustang convertible.

Golden pony: Mustang enthusiasts celebrate 50 years Resident played minor roll in Mustang designJEFFBRYAN Riverland NewsIt was the early 1960s. President Kennedy was determined to put a man on the moon as the space race between the United States and Russia was in full swing. A sense of enthusiasm and optimism swept across America. In Detroit, Ford Motor Company was reeling from the disastrous launch of the Edsel, which failed to live up the hype Ford executives had ginned up. The car was a monumental flop, costing the automaker hundreds of millionsSee DESIGN/ Page A8 See MUSTANG/ Page A5 A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerThere are more than 150springs within the boundaries of the Southwest Florida Water Management District, but three of the five magnificent, firstmagnitude natural wonders are located in Citrus County. Combined, the five first-magnitude springs are said to discharge more than a billion gallons of water per day. Each first-magnitude spring can discharge 64.6 million gallons of water per day. The five are: Crystal River/Kings Bay, Homosassa River, Chassahowitzka River, Weeki Wachee River and Rainbow River. A complex combination of manmade and environmental factors have placed a lot of stress on these springs, and all are considered impaired by state officials. The springs are sort of the window into the vast expanse of the Floridan Aquifer, the underground ocean of fresh water that also serves as the main source of potable water for Big names come to support springsERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerHOMOSASSAThe message Saturday at the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park: Utilize real estate taxes on preserving land acquisition and management. Many of our thousands of springs that we have in Florida are in serious trouble, said Bob Graham, the former governor of Florida and U.S. senator. Either they have a decline in their water flow or have been heavily polluted or both. We need to commit ourselves to an effort to stop the deterioration of our springs and begin to do those things that will return them closer to their natural function and beauty for our future generations. He proposes Amendment 1, which would put a third of taxes on real estate documents toward buying lands and managing them to protect some of the states more sensitive habitats and natural water resources. Like its predecessors, this is not a new tax, Graham See SPRINGS/ Page A7 See STATE / Page A8 For first-magnitude springs, first-magnitude problem STEPHEN E.

CHADGILLIS The News-PressFORT MYERS Thousands of hunters are plying Florida waters every night this time of year, searching the swamps for a prize alligator to take during the states annual 11-week public hunt. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission issued nearly 6,000 permits to the public this year, with each permit allowing a hunter to take two alligators from an assigned waterway. Private hunts on farms and managed lands occur yearround, but between now and Nov. 1 the public gets its chance at gator glory. Driven by TV reality shows like Swamp People and Gator Boys which feature Louisiana alligator hunters and nuisance trappers in the Miami area the sport has grown four-fold in the last decade, from 2,164 hunters in 2002 to 8,103 in 2011. The popularity of such shows has boosted the number of hunters as well as increased demand for alligator products and meat. Every little restaurant wants to serve alligator, said Kelvin Townsend, an alligator farmer and processor in LaBelle. And now that theyve seen the TV shows, everyone wants to kill an alligator. Alligators taken during the public hunt go from the swamp marshes to various markets leather goods, preserved heads and feet to be sold at gift shops, and as different meat products. All the work that goes into the process, and the number of people involved, make the meat and leather expensive. Cutlet and ribs go for about $18 a pound online and at specialty meat markets and delis. Hunters can make several hundred dollars during the public hunt, recouping their $272 harvesting permitting with pocket change to spare. The amount paid is based on the size of the alligator and the quality of its skin. Hunters can take their alligator to a processing facility like Townsend and Sons in LaBelle, keep the meat for themselves and sell the hide. Hunters also sell to middlemen buyers, companies that wait at public boat ramps, buy alligators from hunters and then take them to processing facilities. Processing facilities must be certified by the USDA in order to legally sell meat to the public or restaurants. Securing the certification which allows USDA to conduct random testing at meat plants is not the only challenge. The smell produced when skinning and processing alligator meat is somewhat gamey somewhere between a fish market and a pile of hamburger meat. The blood holds a certain smell on your hands, Shawn Townsend, of Townsend and Sons, said while sorting packages of gator sausage in a carsized freezer. When asked if he eats alligator, he said: We call it gator Jell-O. If you havent skinned an alligator, its good to eat because you dont know that smell. Im just glad I dont cut up lobster and steak. Its a relatively new business model, creating a demand for alligator leather products made in the United States, but Brian Wood, owner of All American Gator in Hollywood, says he sees great potential. European fashion designers buy alligator skins for a few hundred dollars and transform them into jewelry and clothes that sell for tens of thousands of dollars. Wood wants to see that business model on a more local level either cut off the Guccis of the world or at least give them competition for leather products that originally come from states such as Florida and Louisiana. Hes shown his alligator leather goods and product as the International Boston Seafood show for the past 16years. He also travels to Las Vegas in hopes of building American brands that will, one day, sit alongside Prada and other European labels. Ive branched out into the leather because thats where the money is, said Brian Wood, owner of All American Gator. We do belts and purses, jackets, briefcases. We did a $36,000 three-piece couch. I just got two motorcycle seats in. Its the most expensive leather in the world, Wood said. Its just a unique leather, and it takes so much to get it to the market. From the marsh to the market, a lot of people are handling it. It has to go up in price with each person, but once Gucci gets it the price goes through the roof.A2SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER7, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESTATE Service Above SelfWorking HARD to raise money for OUR COMMUNITY and having FUN while doing so!Rotary Youth ExchangeOne Rake at a Time ProjectCentral FL College RotaractNature Coast RotaractShelter Box USA2013 Dictionary ProjectSADD Club at Crystal River HighUpward BoundBoy Scouts of America, Gulf Ridge CouncilHonor Flight of West Central Florida, IncChildrens Christmas ShoppingStop Hunger NowSeminar for Tomorrows LeadersMarine Science StationPolio Plus Purple Pinky DaysPaul Harris FellowshipsRotary International Grant/ScholarshipNature Coast Young MarinesYMCABoys & Girls ClubsGuardian Ad LitemCASAUnited Way of Citrus CountyKey Training CenterRotary Camp FloridaCitrus County Veterans CoalitionDaystarCollege & High School ScholarshipsFamily Resource CenterCitrus County BlessingsHospice of Citrus County & the Nature CoastHabitat for HumanityThe MissionCitrus United BasketSave Kings BayCitrus High, Crystal River High, Seven Rivers Presbyterian School, Lecanto High: InteractTownsend Girl ScoutsCCC Business Leaders for TomorrowVoices for ChildrenNARLEOBSA Venture Crew 370Crystal River Pilot ClubLecanto and Crystal River FFARotary6950.org StoneCrabJAM.com facebook.com/pages/Rotary-Club-of-Kings-BayHope to see you soon!2013-14 Community Contributions fromPROCEEDS OF LAST YEARSSTONE CRAB JAMand other fundraising eventsTOTALING OVER $67,700!!Wednesday Lunch Meeting at 12:15pmSeminole Club Building, Crystal River135 NE 3rd Street, Crystal River Mark Your Calendar!The 7th Annual Stone Crab Jam is Saturday, November 1, 2014 NEW TIME! 3PM-10PMDOWNTOWN CRYSTAL RIVER SPONSORSHIP APPLICATIONS AVAILABLE VIP TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

From staff and wire reports Page A3SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Special to the ChronicleTo take advantage of the PACE program and continue to accomplish the objectives of the Floral City 2020 Vision Plan, UTOPIA has scheduled a community-wide workshop for the residents of Floral City. This initial workshop will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 23, in the cafeteria of Floral City Elementary School, on Marvin Street at Old Floral City Road. As a follow-up to the community meetings related to PACE (Protocol to Access Community Excellence) in Environmental Health that Will Bryant of Citrus County Environmental Health has been conducting, the Floral City community is resurrecting the 1999 adhoc group known as UTOPIA. UTOPIA stands for Under The Oaks People In Action, and came together to plan the 1999 Floral City 20/20 Visioning Workshop that resulted in the Floral City 2020 Vision Action Plan. At the workshop, residents will be able to share their needs, desires and ideas for the infrastructure of Floral City. Special attention will be placed on the flow of people in and through the village. This will include the roads, sidewalks, the Withlacoochee State Trail, parking, transportation modes, vehicle speed, crosswalks, streetscapes and, depending on interest, possibly power, water and sewer services. The geographic area to be discussed is the Floral City Historic Overlay District, but all residents with the Floral City ZIP code are invited to help brainstorm at the workshop. Small working groups will be formed to assure all have an opportunity to participate. If you are unable to attend Oct. 23, UTOPIA wants your thoughts and ideas to be considered: email them to floralcityutopia@gmail.com, including your ZIP code. Your name, address and phone number are optional. Pick up a flier promoting the UTOPIA workshop at the Floral City Library, Aunt Marthas Market, The Florida Art Gallery and Caf, Hamptons Edge Trailside Bicyles, The Red Brick Place or the Heritage Hall Museum. The flyer contains three questions that all residents are asked to answer by Oct. 13 for the workshop. Interested parties can also take the preworkshop survey at surveymonkey.com/s/WRRWX9X. UTOPIA asks that all who wish to attend register now so adequate spaceand facilitators can be provided. Call 352726-7740 or email floralcityutopia @gmail.com by Monday, Oct. 13. Special to the ChronicleThe Citrus County Tax Collectors Office is sponsoring a fundraiser from Sept 12 through Oct. 10 to support the Car Seat Safety Program at the Early Learning Coalition of the Nature Coast. Staff at the Meadowcrest and Inverness offices of the tax collector will accept donations to help support this program, which provides safe, new car seats at a low cost for families experiencing financial hardship. It also offers free car seat inspections for all community residents. The fundraiser will help this injury-prevention program in the effort to ensure that all children in Citrus County have a safe and appropriate car seat or booster seat, regardless of family income. We are grateful to Tax Collector Janice Warren and her staff for supporting this program that will assist children throughout the county, said Sonya Bosanko, executive director of the program. Along with individual donations, we greatly appreciate contributions from community agencies and businesses countywide since this is a program that benefits all of Citrus County.

For every $5 you donate at the Tax Collectors Office, you will receive one ticket toward winning this travel system. The winner will be contacted after Oct. 15. Tax collectors office locations are: West Citrus Government Center, 1540 N. Meadowcrest Blvd., Crystal River; and the Courthouse Annex, 210 N. Apopka Ave., Inverness.

Floral City visioning committee resurrected; workshop planned Tax collector sponsoring car-seat fundraiser CSES celebrates Grandparents DayERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerCITRUS SPRINGSSeven daughters. Eighteen grandchildren. How do Michelle and David Carufel remember everyones name or find time to attend their school activities? He is our life, Michelle Carufel said. We always wanted a little boy. We have seven daughters, and when we found out we were going to have a grandson, we were just ecstatic. Huddled together, oblivious to anyone around them, the Carufels and grandson Jaidyn Nilsen worked diligently on completing a booklet supplied for the Grand Morning celebration at Citrus Springs Elementary School on Friday. Today is National Grandparents Day, a secular holiday celebrated in the United States since 1978. Principal Alice Harrell explained that the occasion was just a time for grandparents and grandchildren to enjoy doing what they do best: love each other. Students were happy, Harrell said. This wasnt a time for our school to have anything. We werent putting on a program; it was time for the grandparents to spend time with their grandchildren and doing something fun like having some cookies and milk. Life gets busy. Kids are in sports and lots of different activities. This was time for them just to enjoy. I will take overcrowded any day of the week to see that bond between grandparents and grandchildren. With well over 300 people attending, PTO president Tara Donnelly said the grandparent turnout was larger than expected, but their involvement was warmly welcomed. The cafeteria was filled to capacity, and many found themselves moving to the stage, teacher lounge and courtyard. There are close to 300-something grandparents here, which is close to half of our student body, Harrell said. With that many grandparents involved in their grandchilds life, that just means these children are on the right road. They have the support structure to be successful in life. Harrell also offered an opportunity for those grandparents with extra love to share: We have volunteer and mentor programs for you to come into the school and get involved, she said. You can make a difference in so many kids lives. Fourth-grader Ella Sandstrom quickly gave her grandmother Judy Sandstrom a bear hug before rushing off for her spelling test. Ella and Judy enjoy baking and coloring together. ERYN WORTHINGTON/ChronicleBeing one of 18 grandchildren, first-grader Jaidyn Nilsen soaked up every second of attention from his grandparents Michelle an d David Carufel on Friday morning at the Grand Morning celebration of Grandparents Day. He says his favorite things to do with h is grandma and grandpa are sing songs, dance and beat Grandpa on Xbox. Have a grand day

Selznick was trying to figure out how to get the movie past Hollywoods morality censors by tamping down the novels racist overtones while portraying the South in the Civil War. Thousands of fans sent letters about wanting to play Scarlett, and the Ku Klux Klan offered to serve in an advisory role on the film. Black activists implored Selznick not to make the movie, with the African Youth Congress calling it un-American, anti-Semitic, antiNegro, pro-KKK and a glorification of Southern lynch society. Of course, Selznick pressed on and made one of the most popular films in history. And on Tuesday, hundreds of items he saved, including dresses worn in the film, scripts, story boards and other things, will go on display at the University of Texas Harry Ransom Center as part of a 75th anniversary tribute, The Making of Gone With the Wind. The exhibit, which runs through Jan. 4, takes visitors on a journey from the 1936 purchase of movie rights through production and the films eventual premiere. It examines the casting of the movie and the decision to remove any mention of the Klan from the screenplay and avoid the use of racial slurs, which Margaret Mitchell used throughout her novel. Selznicks insistence on barring racial slurs likely saved the movie, said Steve Wilson, the Ransom Centers film curator. If that word had stayed in, it would probably have been so offensive we wouldnt even be watching it anymore, he said. Censors also warned Selznick not to include scenes depicting rape or even the pain and trauma associated with childbirth. Much of the exhibit is dedicated to the casting of Scarlett and the rumors that swirled about the candidates from Bette Davis to Katherine Hepburn before Selznick finally settled on British actress Leigh. Theres something in this character that really grabbed people, Wilson said. A lot of women feel they are right to play the part because theyve had the same kind of romantic problems Scarlett had. More often it seems theyve had the hardships Scarlett survived. In one telegram, the United Daughters of the Confederacy noted that the group would protest vigorously against any other than a native born Southern woman for the part.

Better a foreigner than a Yankee, Wilson said.Toronto Film Festival holds Bill Murray DayTORONTO The Toronto Film Festival turned its second day into a very welcome new holiday, Bill Murray Day, an honor the comedian received, naturally, with bemusement. I get to park wherever I want, said Murray, appearing for a Q&A following a screening of Ghostbusters. Friday was officially dubbed Bill Murray Day by the festival. Fans turned out outfitted in costumes of beloved Murray characters. They were all topped by a baby dressed as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters. Said Murray: That is one good-looking baby. Though Bill Murray Day was planned to last 24 hours, many were hoping it would like Groundhog Day reset Saturday. From wire reports Associated PressActor Bill Murray sings to the crowd Friday at a screening of the original Ghostbusters film during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. The festival turned its second day into a very welcome new holiday: Bill Murray Day, where three of Murrays classics Stripes, Groundhog Day and Ghostbusters were screened ahead of the premiere of Murrays latest, the next-door-neighbor comedy St. Vincent.

There was the music of the decade. The Beatles arrived in America, sparking the British Invasion, making their debut on the Ed Sullivan Show in February 1964. The Fab Four scored four No.1 songs on the Hot Billboard 100 that year. In addition to the Beatles mark on American culture, Youve Lost That Lovin Feelin was first performed by the Righteous Brothers. The song has received more airplay on radio and television than any other song in the past 50 years, according to Broadcast Music Inc. And, of course, who can forget the cars of the 1960s maybe none more iconic than the Ford Mustang. Fifty years later, Americans havent lost that lovin feelin for the sports car, which debuted on showroom floors across the country in April of 1964. Known by Mustang enthusiasts as the 19641/2 model, Ford often refers to it as the 1965 model despite its debut in mid-April. I think it takes you back to a better time when people went out car cruising, said Beth Wear, who along with husband, Michael, owns a 1996 Mustang and a 2002 Mustang. Its that nostalgia. Dunnellon area resident Ray Shelton, whose wife and family inherited a 19641/2 model after the death of her uncle, credits movies such as Bullitt, featuring Steve McQueen in the 1960s, and Gone in 60Seconds, starring Nicholas Cage in the early 2000s, as bolstering and reinvigorating the alreadyundeniable popularity of the Mustang. In 1968s Bullitt, McQueen drove a 1968 Mustang fastback, highlighted by a car chase, which established new standards for such scenes in films. In the remake of Gone in 60 Seconds, Cages character was known for boosting cars, including the 1967 Mustang Shelby GT. His character was also known for having difficulties in successfully boosting said model, referred to as Eleanor in the film. When I take the car into Walmart, I get a lot of people who approach me asking if they can take pictures or look at it, Shelton said. Shelton said the feel of the Mustang harkens back to a more innocent era in America. I guess a lot of people have an affinity for the Mustang the look, the design, the nostalgia, he said. You feel like this is a special vehicle, you need to preserve this car. I dont drive it that much any more. I put it on trailer and haul it covered when I take it to shows. Its really the way people view it. Rainbow Springs resident Dick Levine believes the older Mustangs designs are what still hold the fascination of young and old alike. I think its the styling, because when you get underneath, its really just a Ford Falcon with a 289engine, which is a highperformance engine, said Levine, who purchased a 1966 candy-apple red Mustang in 1989 while on a business trip in the Seattle area. As a young man, Levin said, he owned a 1966 Mustang fastback, which was a V6. Levine said hell watch car auctions on television and be awestruck by the prices people will pay for a Mustang compared to other classic American cars. Ed Starling said when he rolls through town or to the golf course in his 1965 Mustang, it brings plenty of attention from other motorists and the guys at the course. I just really enjoy driving it, Starling said the Mustang hes owned since 1967. Everywhere you go, whether youre stopping for gas or driving through town, it gets attention. I have people get their checkbooks out on the spot and want to write me a check. For Gene and Donna Harvey, the appeal of the Mustang is simple. Theres just something satisfying about it, Donna Harvey said about the couples 1968 mint-green convertible. It just makes you feel good about riding in a car thats in such good shape after so many years. The Harveys purchased their car approximately 18years ago from the same couple they had bought a ModelA Ford from. Initially, Gene Harvey said, he was interested in the Mustang but chose to purchase the ModelA instead. Several years had passed when the wife of the owner had called, telling the Harveys her husband had died and asked if they were still interested in the Mustang. I went over and bought it, Gene Harvey said about the car, which has 45,000 original miles on it. We brought it home here. Neither of them we use every day. They are strictly collectors items. Stu Bollen hasnt owned a Mustang in more than 20 years, but the native of England fondly recalls the first American sports car he purchased after arriving in the United States. Familiar with the brand name Ford, he preferred sporty cars. He admits he didnt know much about American cars at the time, but he liked the style of the Mustang. The reason I bought the Mustang, coming from England, the other cars just seemed so huge, he said, noting the Ford Galaxy and the Chevrolet Impala. I just found them to be much bigger than my needs. (The Mustangs) didnt seem to have a whole lot of leg room, it was more like an English car, and I like sporty cars. Ive always liked sporty cars. His first Mustang was a 1967 model, candy-apple red, stick shift, because he didnt know how to drive an automatic. He paid upward of $1,750 for the car, which had 10,000 miles on it at the time. It just suited my needs perfectly, he said, noting he had the car for five years and put more than 100,000 miles on it. When I sold it, the engine was still great, it just purred. The elements were starting to get to it. To do this day, the Mustang remains one of his favorite vehicles. I think it started the revolution of muscle cars, said Bollen, who last owned a Mustang in the early 1990s. I still think its being copied, everybody copied it. The Mustang was the first of its era, then you had the Camaro, which was the knockoff of the Mustang. It was a sporty, reasonably priced, attractive-looking car. It had what you needed. Cecil McLeod, a Rainbow Lakes Estates resident, has owned his 1966 Ford Mustang convertible since 1970. It has almost 300,000 miles on it, he said, noting he purchased the car in California and traveled coast to coast in it. And its seen a lot of travel time on Interstate75, where hes traveled from Indiana to Key West in the car. From the day I bought it, it started increasing in value, he said. They were one of the first cars with a long hood and a short trunk. It wasnt meant to be a family car; you cannot put suitcases in that trunk. As to why the Mustang caught on so quickly and the classic version remains so popular among car enthusiasts, McLeod said, Its just one of those things, it just caught on. I used to drive Lincolns, he said. No one ever game me a thumbs-up when I was driving (a Lincoln). But with the Mustang, I get a lot of thumbs-up or waves when people drive by. McLeod has a hard and steadfast rule for bringing his Mustang out. I dont drive it unless I can put the top down. If I have to have a roof over me, Ill drive my truck. They just look good, said Joe Lourenco, who purchased his second-ever 1971 Ford Mustang a year and half ago. Overall, this is the third Mustang Lourenco has owned over the past 50years. As a young man, he owned a 1965 model, then a 1971 model he sold many years ago. He attributes the success and longevity of the Mustang to its sleek, sporty style. I think that started it, he said of the sports-car era. A lot of people got hooked on Firebirds and Camaros. But the Mustang, I think people enjoyed its style. Dick Levine jokingly said you have to pay close attention to the gas gauge. The main thing is a V-8 with dual exhaust, you get that rumble when you start it ... he said of the highperformance engine. Its nice to start one up, but even Lourenco admits he has to be cautious when driving it because the sound of the engine attracts folks, most notably law enforcement. They think youre going faster than what you are, he said with a laugh. Theres no way to appropriately describe the feeling of climbing into the seat, sliding the key in the ignition and turning the engine over, Ray Shelton said. Its pretty crazy, it has a tremendous amount of power, Shelton said. You just feel like youre back in that time. Im 64 myself, those were the cars back then. The special cars are the fastbacks. The car sounds so beautiful, its really spectacular. Even at the golden age of 50.

Doctor helps soldier who lost hair in bomb attackAUDRAD.S. BURCH Miami HeraldMIAMI Army veteran Joseph Jones looked in the mirror at his swollen face and the patches that would eventually become his eyebrows and beard. Still numb, he gently patted the tiny hair follicles that had been planted in arcs above his eyes and along his jawline. He looked side to side in the mirror, taking in all the rows, as the first hint of smile began to form. It looked to him like the beginnings of a pine tree forest sprouting from his face. But soon enough, he hoped, he would look like the Jones he knew well before the explosion. For the first time in more than a decade, Jones 35 years old, married, former soldier, war survivor would have his eyebrows and beard back, their absence the collateral damage of a roadside bomb during the Iraq war. For the first time in more than a decade, Jones could recognize traces of his old self. After the IED blast, my hair would not grow on my face. I dont have eyebrows, eyelashes or a beard. I looked odd and sometimes people would stare at me, said Jones, who lives in Youngstown, Florida, near Tallahassee, with his wife and daughter. I feel like I lost a part of my identity when I lost my hair. Recently, a Miami-Dade plastic surgeon worked to restore what Jones had lost. Dr. Jeffrey Epstein performed hair-transplant surgery on Jones, harvesting about 3,000 hair follicles from a donor site on the back of his head and replanting them on his face. The eight-hour procedure in Epsteins South Miami office, donated by the doctor, was performed as part of the Faces of Honor program, a national initiative by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and its foundation to help Iraq and Afghanistan veterans injured in the line of duty. Jones procedure would ordinarily cost about $16,000. We are trying to make these veterans look whole. There is a difference between healed and whole, said Dr. Charlie Finn, the humanitarian chair of the plastic surgery academy. The program, launched in 2009, coordinates the academys plastic surgeons, who donate their services. Only a handful of procedures have been performed so far, including treatment for burns and scar revisions, because the program is not well-known. Two years ago, Finn repaired the nose of a soldier injured in a Taliban attack in Afghanistan. Considered elective and mostly aesthetic, the services often complement the care already provided by the Veterans Affairs health care system. To qualify, veterans must have a combat injury in Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom and an honorable discharge. The surgical procedures are as much about psychological healing as looks or function. The facial hair loss for Jones raises the memories of what was a trauma, said Epstein, a surgeon with offices in Miami and New York who has specialized in hair restoration since 1994. The beard and facial hair will put him in harmony with how he feels. Its going to make a difference. For Jones, military service was his chosen career path since age 8, when he was awed by the movies Top Gun and Iron Eagle. His grandfather, father and an uncle had been Army men. He enlisted in his hometown near Jackson, Mississippi. When I saw those movies, I knew that was my course in life, he said. I knew I wanted to serve my country. Jones deployed to Iraq in 2004, early in the U.Sled invasion. In March of that year, Jones and four others were in a Humvee delivering food to fellow soldiers in a convoy traveling through southern Iraq. Then, a small blast. No one was seriously injured. Jones injuries were superficial, relatively painless and, it turned out, deceptive. What Jones didnt know at the time: The heat of the flames probably deadened the hair follicles on his face and damaged the pigment of his skin. It was almost like a grease fire like you see in the kitchen, but it took off my eyebrows and eyelashes. When I was receiving treatment, the doctors told me everything would grow back. But it never did, he said. I can grow a goatee, but only because it was covered during the blast by my chinstrap. Eight months later, Jones was in a second roadside explosion just outside Najaf, Iraq, wrecking his left knee and right ankle when the truck he was riding in rolled over onto him. Jones returned to the States with a limp, no eyebrows, eyelashes or beard and posttraumatic stress disorder. He left the service, eventually settling in a tiny, unincorporated corner of northern Bay County in the Panhandle near Panama City. He took medication to calm the memories of war, but he still struggled at times. He had a brush with the law. He and his first wife, with whom he has three children, divorced. In 2007, Jones remarried and now sports a tattoo of his second wifes lips on the side of his neck. Jones said he hasnt been able to find steady work because of his PTSD. But it is the hairless face, the eyes without cover, that bother him most. A couple of times, insensitive people had even called him Powder, an albino character in the 1995 movie of the same name. Its about Jeremy Powder Reed, who has supernatural powers and lacks the ability to grow hair. Jones had resigned himself to living without facial hair until earlier this year, when he heard about the Faces of Honor program through a veterans organization. On Aug. 6, Jones made the eight-hour drive to Epsteins office on Sunset Drive, the first step toward becoming whole. Jones was the doctors first patient in the program, though he has performed similar pro bono procedures for victims of domestic violence. During the consultation, Jones envisioned the 5 oclock shadow worn by actor Jason Statham, or, if he were really lucky, a thick hipster beard like that of Jason Jase Robertson of the Duck Dynasty reality show. For the eyebrows, he was less specific, simply strips of hair that would help to reframe his face and, he hoped, stop the probing questions. The hair is a way for me to feel better about yourself, he said. To prepare for the transplant procedure, a technician shaved the bottom third of Jones hair on the back of his head, an area called the donor site. That area is used for transplants because it grows hair genetically resistant to balding, the reason balding men often retain a wreath of hair on the sides and back. Before the operation, Epstein drew the outline of eyebrows and a beard on Jones face with a blue marker, drawing the beard thinner than Jones originally wanted to make sure enough follicles on the donor site were available. Once grafts are removed, the hairs in the donor site would not grow back, so Epstein made sure to spread out the harvested area. For the eyebrows, he drew arcs that were symmetrical but not perfect. Jones would go from a small goatee to a full beard, Epstein explained as he drew. Of course, the sideburns are a key for him. For the eyebrows, I am just filling in, which will make a big difference. He has performed more than 9,000 hair procedures over two decades: For eyebrows, women want nice, sculpted looks. Guys generally just want hair. When it was over, Jones was swollen, bruised, bloodied but pleased. The newly planted hairs looked like stubble after shaving. After 10 years and eight hours on a Wednesday, the promise of facial hair was real. The newly implanted hairs began to fall out within two weeks. They will regenerate in about four months, growing into full eyebrows and a beard. For now, he is hairless again. Some people might look at me and say I dont need hair, he said. But this is important to me. I want to look normal. Florence Becker, 89BEVERLY HILLSFlorence M. Becker, 89, of Beverly Hills, died Friday, Sept.5, 2014, at the Hospice House of Citrus County.

said. There has been a tax in existence for many years on real estate transactions. When you sell your house or property, there is a small tax that goes into a designated fund. One-third of that fund will be committed to land acquisition and land management purposes. I think the jewels of Florida ought to be preserved for our children, grandchildren and their grandchildren, he added. This is certainly a key piece of that necklace of jewels in Florida. According to Graham, the Florida Conservation Coalition (FCC) aims to restore funding for the protection of Floridas natural resources through a decades-old method of funding similar to Amendment1. If you think that effort has been success, come to Homosassa Springs to see how successful it has been, Graham said. We need to continue this for the 20million people who call themselves Floridians and the estimated double of that population between now and the end of the 21st century. The Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park was purchased through Amendment1 programs during the 1980s. If passed in November, Amendment 1 would be the successor for the next 20years of state effort, according to Graham. Voters will decide the fate of Amendment1 on Nov.4. And so the FCC brought in heavy hitters Saturday to attend a major jamboree at the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park in efforts of showcasing the park and preserving area springs natural beauty. Speakers at the Speak Up Homosassa Springs event included Graham; Dudley Calfee of Ferris Farms; former Citrus County administrator Gary Kuhl; and Florida Springs Institute director Dr. Bob Knight. In addition, 25 environmental exhibitors decorated the park and admission was free. Its great to see folks here interested in our waters and springs, including our state leaders, Kuhl said. The fact that these people of this stature are concerned and want to do something to help Florida is a good commentary on their character. And we can all do simple things to help. Simple things like not overdoing the fertilizers and turning off the water when brushing your teeth add up. State Sen. Charlie Dean spoke of his childhood at the park before it was a state park. I have seen that bottom white, clean, he said, pointing to the bottom of the Homosassa River. I want to be able to see the sand bottom again. I would like to see the engagement of the right kind of activity to preserve and enhance the ecosystems of every county. We are so blessed. We want to maintain the integrity of the ecosystem and at the same time maintain it at a better fashion than what we have done in the past. If you havent enjoyed and you dont understand what Citrus County is all about, get out of your recliner and easy chair and come walk, see, visit our parks and springs and enjoy, Dean continued. They are Gods gifts and we need to do a better job maintaining them.

of dollars in losses. The American car market was changing: the buyers were younger, with money and a desire for something other than the majority of vehicles aimed at families. A team of young, up-and-coming executives led by Lee Iacocca knew Ford Motor Company needed to spark a revolution of sorts within the country. Gene Niedzwiecki wasnt one of those up-andcoming executives destined to change the path of Ford Motor Company for the latter part of the decade. The 38-year employee of Ford Motor Company was part of one of many design teams, an apprentice tasked with making bucket seats work in a vehicle at time when bucket seats were relatively unheard of. In addition, the team Niedzwiecki was assigned to also had to make sure the sleek, extended hoods on Fords innovative design gave the Mustang the sporty appearance executives were aiming for at the time. At that particular time, bucket seats were, for the most part, unheard of in cars, said the 83-year-old Niedzwiecki, a 1949 graduate of the Henry Ford Trade School. The team I was on, wed mainly just worked with bench seats. Thats what they wanted in cars, because vehicles were geared toward families. Additionally, Iacocca and other executives were attempting to fast-track the design and production of the Mustang, then referred to as the Cougar. Officials were forced to change the name at the last minute because another company owned the rights to that specific vehicle name. Years later, though, Mercury would develop a Cougar. Still, when the conceptual plans for the Mustang were unveiled in 1962, executives wanted the first model to debut within the second quarter of 1964. Typically, Niedzwiecki explained, new vehicles took upwards of five to six years to implement because of the time needed to design, build and tweak along the way. But Iacocca and others were going against the grain and taking parts of other vehicles, engines and parts already in the companys wide inventory to cut back on costs. (Iacocca) would, every now and then, come into the design center to talk with the folks about the car, the design and such, said Niedzwiecki, who spent four years in the U.S. Air Force in the 1950s. I never had any personal one-on-one interaction with him. No one within the Ford Motor Company realized the Mustang would be as successful as it was, and to this day, remain a popular vehicle. In the first year of its release, Ford sold 418,812 Mustangs. It earned a then-staggering profit of $1.1billion in the first two years the company released the model. It was such a radical design for that time, but the people accepted it, said Niedzwiecki, who owned a late-1960s model, which he presented to his daughter for her 18th birthday in 1971. Throughout the years, the design from the body style to the engines has changed drastically, Niedzwiecki said. But the one constant is the logo of the Mustangs namesake, the galloping horse. People see it and they immediately know what it is, said Niedzwiecki, who prefers the newer versions of the Mustang to the classic style, because of comfort and safety. Still, 50 years after the birth of one of the most iconic sports cars in American history, the longtime Ford Motor Company employee takes solace in his small part in its development. Im just happy so many people liked the car, Niedzwiecki said, and that I was a part of the team that had a small role in helping with the development and design.

However, human activities such as the overuse of fertilizer, septic tanks, stormwater runoff, and what some are calling the excessive withdrawals of groundwater are conspiring to pollute and stanch the flow of springs. This is how the water district, which is the scientific agency charged with restoring the impaired springs, describes some of the challenges facing all five first-magnitude springs: Crystal River/Kings Bay: Extensive dredgeand-fill activities beginning in the 1960s altered much of Kings Bay and portions of the Crystal River shorelines. Numerous sea walls and deadend canals were created to provide waterfront residential and commercial real estate. These activities changed water circulation and reduced the amount of natural wetlands. Although nitrate levels are relatively low, portions of Kings Bay are dominated by unhealthy Lyngbya algae. Large amounts of algae growth can cause reduced water clarity and extreme fluctuations in dissolved oxygen, which is stressful to aquatic life. Chassahowitzka River: The ecological shifts in the river are caused by sea level rise, coupled with the decline of spring discharge primarily due to a long-term decrease in rainfall. Overall, the tidal river is in good condition with a submerged aquatic vegetation community that can fluctuate in response to salinity changes. While the river is relatively healthy, the springs that make up the headwaters and the upstream canal system are in poor condition, with significant sediment accumulation and unhealthy Lyngbya algae. Homosassa River: The river has numerous canals and seawalls that have had a negative impact on water clarity and habitat. Rainbow River: Although Rainbow Springs has some of the healthiest submerged aquatic vegetation, it has one of the highest nitrate levels among the West Central Florida spring systems. Excess nitrate levels in water can be harmful to aquatic insects, amphibians and fish. If algae have an unlimited source of nitrates, excess growth may occur. Large amounts of algae growth can cause reduced water clarity and extreme fluctuations in dissolved oxygen, which is stressful to aquatic life. In addition, unhealthy Hydrilla and Lyngbya dominate at the lower portion of the river. Weeki Wachee: The headspring is home to Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, which features a water park and the famous underwater mermaid show. The lower section of the river has been dredged and channelized with canals for riverfront homes and businesses. The slightly brackish canals and lower portion of the river are tidally influenced by the Gulf of Mexico. Like many springs in thestate, Weeki Wachee Springs and its river have elevated nitrate levels and some problems with filamentous Lyngbya algae growth. Excess nitrate levels in water can be harmful to aquatic insects, amphibians and fish. If algae have an unlimited source of nitrates, excess growth may occur. Large amounts of algae growth can cause reduced water clarity and extreme fluctuations in dissolved oxygen, which is stressful to aquatic life.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Its not easy to prevent the Supreme Court from deciding an issue once the justices have agreed to hear a case. But over the past two years, civil rights advocates have managed to do just that by coaxing settlements in a pair of high-profile housing discrimination cases weeks before the court was set to hear oral arguments. The advocates goal was to remove any chance that court conservatives might undermine a powerful legal doctrine the Obama administration and others have used increasingly to enforce the Fair Housing Act. While those last-minute settlements pushed the issue down the road, the Supreme Court could decide as early as this month whether to take up yet another case challenging so-called disparate impact lawsuits. In disparate-impact cases, plaintiffs rely on statistics to show that seemingly neutral housing or lending practices can disproportionately harm racial minorities, even if there is no proof of intent to discriminate. The theory has been used for years to show bias in employment cases, but Texas officials are urging the justices to find that it doesnt apply in housing discrimination cases. The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs is seeking to overturn a lower court ruling that found disparate impact could be used to show the agency illegally steered lowincome housing into mostly black neighborhoods. If the high court doesnt take up the Texas case, at least two other cases are also moving through federal courts challenging the Department of Housing and Urban Developments adoption last year of regulations that specifically recognize disparateimpact claims in housing cases. It became clear early on in the (Chief Justice John) Roberts court era that the best way for liberal groups to win before the Supreme Court on issues aside from gay rights is not to play, said Rick Hasen, a professor at the University of CaliforniaIrvine School of Law. But Hasen said he doesnt expect the game of keep-away to last on the housing issue because opponents keep bringing legal challenges and the justices clearly are interested. Disparate impact has been used for more than four decades since the Supreme Court embraced it in a landmark employment discrimination case in 1971. But the theory has emerged in recent years as a centerpiece of the Justice Departments effort to crack down on illegal housing practices. In 2011, the government won a record $335 million settlement from Bank of America to resolve allegations that its Countrywide unit discriminated against black and Hispanic customers by charging them higher fees and steering them into higher-risk subprime loans. The lawsuits have drawn the ire of banks and mortgage companies, which contend that federal housing laws should punish only intentional acts of discrimination. Civil rights groups say the disparate-impact argument is needed to counter forms of discrimination that are less overt but still have the effect of hurting racial minorities. In the Texas case, a fair housing group alleged that the states system for handing out lowincome housing tax credits had a disparate impact on racial minorities. A federal appeals court agreed that the group could use statistics to show the state was approving more low-income housing in black neighborhoods than in white areas. Such policies perpetuate segregated neighborhoods, fair housing advocates say. The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs says allowing disparate-impact claims would open nearly every housing decision, from zoning rules to use of credit scores, to potential litigation. The agency also says it puts housing officials in the awkward position of seeking out race-neutral results without actually taking race into account. In 2012 the justices were poised to take on the housing issue in a Minnesota case questioning whether the city of St. Pauls aggressive enforcement of housing code violations in lowincome properties disproportionately affected black residents. But Justice Department lawyer Thomas Perez, now labor secretary, persuaded the city to drop its appeal. Perez has said the case, Magner v. Gallagher, contained bad facts because landlords of rundown apartments were trying to use the law to keep their tenants in squalor. Critics suggested the case revealed the flaws of disparate impact, making it a perfect vehicle to overturn use of the theory in housing cases. Last year, the court was set to hear another disparate-impact case from New Jersey in which residents of a mostly black and Hispanic neighborhood sued the township of Mount Holly over a redevelopment plan that would have forced them to move. A lastminute settlement resulted in the case being dismissed. There is no indication so far of any settlement talks in the Texas dispute, though that could change if the Supreme Court decides at its Sept. 29 conference to hear the case. The Obama administration has not weighed in on the case. Gordon Anderson, spokesman for the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, referred questions to the state attorney generals office, which declined comment. Betsy Julian, president of the Texas-based Inclusive Communities Project Inc., which brought the case, also declined comment. In court filings, the group says the court should wait for one of the other cases challenging the new HUD regulations. While the court often takes up cases where there is a split among appeals courts, every appeals court to address the issue has held that the housing law does allow disparate impact claims. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Mortgage Bankers Association and other groups representing the finance and lending industry have urged the justices to take up the Texas case. Lenders dont want to face the risk of being sued, said Paul Hancock, an attorney who filed a friend of the court brief on behalf of the business groups.

Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Working with Ebola patients in Liberia, American pediatrician Alan Jamison treated as many people as he could as the country slipped into chaos. Each day, more patients showed up at the hospitals doors. The deadly virus wasnt the only danger: Ebola was causing such fear that some Liberians were threatening to burn down the isolation unit with doctors and patients inside. His medical missionary group pulled him out early as a precaution. Still, the 69-year-old retiree says hed return. This is where the need is, Jamison explains. This is my calling. Jamison isnt alone even after three American aid workers fell sick, many other doctors, nurses and other health care volunteers are on their way to West Africa, helping to staff hospitals and clinics and screen travelers to slow the epidemics spread. Why are so many willing to put themselves in harms way? Its a call, a zeal, a devotion. Its an acceptance of a professional life outside the ordinary, with an element of adventure, said William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. Hospital volunteer Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly were already in Liberia when the outbreak began, and decided to stay at the charity-run ELWA hospital in Monrovia to help. Richard Sacra, a 15-year ELWA veteran, immediately volunteered to leave his family in suburban Boston and return to the hospital when Writebol and Brantly got sick. Jamison also worked there. All are committed to their cause. Like Jamison, Nancy Writebol and her husband, David, told The Associated Press that theyd consider going back. Brantly said he couldnt return just yet, but would keep campaigning to end Ebola. Sacra also had no regrets, his wife said as the doctor was evacuated to the isolation unit in a Nebraska hospital. Once you go and you see the Lord at work, I mean, theres nothing else that you want to do, Nancy Writebol said. These volunteers are passionate, but theres also a cold logic to their commitment: This epidemic that has killed more than 2,000 people and sickened 3,900 in five West African nations wont end unless more experienced health care workers confront it directly. Ebola is being spread by people, in hospitals, homes and funerals. People catch the virus when they have direct contact with the blood or bodily fluids of those who are sick and dying, or already dead. At ELWA, Jamison trained workers how to protect themselves and the wider population. The hospital in Monrovia is operated by Charlotte-based SIM USA, and includes more than 200 beds as well as the 50-bed isolation unit for Ebola patients. Keeping those populations separate is essential, Jamison said, but is no simple matter. He trained workers to wear a mask and gloves and screen new patients from several feet away before they were allowed to enter. When patients showed signs of Ebola, a worker wearing a protective suit would be summoned to bring them to a holding area for evaluation and then to the isolation unit if necessary. But the screeners have to ask the right questions to suss out the truth in such a fearful environment, Jamison said. And if anyone masking Ebola symptoms is allowed inside, they could expose many more people who dont routinely wear full-body protective suits. Sometimes I felt safer in the Ebola unit than in the hospital, Jamison said. Most international aid organizations are quite familiar with the risks of sending health care workers into terrain plagued by war, political turmoil and disease. But this Ebola epidemic has posed serious and unique challenges. Were balancing tre men dous need in a risky environment, said Joe DiCarlo, a vice-president at Jamisons sponsor, the Portland, Oregon-based MedAssociated PressPYEONGTAEK, South Korea More than 70 aging women live in a squalid neighborhood between the rear gate of the U.S. Army garrison here and half a dozen seedy nightclubs. Near the front gate, glossy illustrations posted in real-estate offices show the dream homes that may one day replace their one-room shacks. They once worked as prostitutes for American soldiers in this camptown near Camp Humphreys, and theyve stayed because they have nowhere else to go. Now, the women are being forced out of the Anjeongri neighborhood by developers and landlords eager to build on prime real estate around the soon-to-beexpanded garrison. My landlord wants me to leave, but my legs hurt, I cant walk, and South Korean real estate is too expensive, says Cho Myung-ja, 75, a former prostitute who receives monthly court eviction notices at her home, which she has rarely left over the past five years because of leg pain. I feel like Im suffocating, she says. Plagued by disease, poverty and stigma, the women have little to no support from the public or the government. Their fate contrasts greatly with a group of Korean women forced into sexual slavery by Japanese troops during World War II. Those so-called comfort women receive government assistance under a special law, and large crowds demanding that Japan compensate and apologize to the women attend weekly rallies outside the Japanese Embassy. While the camptown women get social welfare, theres no similar law for special funds to help them, according to two Pyeongtaek city officials who refused to be named because of office rules. Many people in South Korea dont even know about the camptown women. In the decades following the devastation of the 1950-53 Korean War, South Korea was a poor dictatorship deeply dependent on the U.S. military. Analysts say the South Korean government saw the women as necessary for the thousands of U.S. soldiers stationed in the South. Some of the women went to the camps voluntarily; others were brought by pimps. In 1962, the government formalized the camptowns as special tourism districts with legalized prostitution. That year, some 20,000 registered prostitutes worked in nearly 100 camptowns, and many more were unregistered. The women who became prostitutes saw few other options, but the work made them social pariahs, unable to live or work anywhere else, says Park Kyung-soo, secretary general of the National Campaign for the Eradication of Crimes against Korean Civilians, a group that tries to uncover and monitor alleged U.S. military crimes against South Koreans. Pockets of former camptown women exist throughout South Korea. Now in their 60s, 70s and 80s, the women of Anjeong-ri mostly live alone in tiny homes, struggling to pay for food and rent on a monthly government stipend of 300,000 to 400,000 won ($300 to $400). Activists say most of the women are in danger of losing their homes. Im so worried that I cant sleep, says a camptown woman who will only give her surname, Kim, because shes ashamed of her past. The 75year-olds landlords have told her she has a month to leave, and she looks nearly every day for a new home. The camptown womens predicament began when Washington and Seoul agreed in 2004 to relocate the sprawling Yongsan U.S. base, which takes up 620 acres of prime real estate in the center of wealthy Seoul, to the base in Pyeongtaek, 45 miles from the capital. The deadline, originally set for 2012, is now tentatively 2016. At the end of the move, Camp Humphreys will have tripled in size and house more than 36,000 people, including troops, their family members and civilian staff. Investors are eyeing the Pyeongtaek land in anticipation of homes for U.S. military families and sites for businesses that will cater to the new flood of people and wealth. Piles of rubble from demolished homes sit next to new villas. A few blocks from some of the remaining shacks, a partially built apartment building rises to the beating of hammers and whirring of drills. Landlords eager to capitalize on rising land prices are trying to force the women out with pressure and eviction orders, and have more than quadrupled the monthly rent, from 50,000 won ($50) to 200,000 won ($200), said Woo Soon-duk, director of the Sunlit Sisters Center, a local non-governmental organization dedicated to the women. Many of the women want the government to take greater responsibility for their well-being and financial stability. They believe they played an important role for South Korea. In June, 122 former camptown prostitutes sued the South Korean government. Theyre each seeking 10 million won (about $9,870) in compensation. A court date has not been set. Activists and lawyers for the women say police prevented prostitutes from leaving; that the government forced the women to undergo tests for sexually transmitted diseases, then locked them up if they were sick; and that officials from the U.S. military and South Korean government regularly inspected the prostitution operations. The government saw the camptowns as a way to regulate prostitution, bring in much-needed money and keep the U.S. soldiers happy. It was also worried about a rising number of sex crimes committed against South Korean women by U.S. soldiers in the 1950s and s, Park says.A10SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER7, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION/WORLD Organization: Mailing Address: Description of participation for parade & fair (indicate no. & length of vehs/tris) Please attach se parate sheet if necessary: Contact Name (Print): Phone: We, the above, release Citrus Publishing Inc. and the Veterans Appreciation Ad Hoc Coordinating Comm ittee from any liability that may be associated with Veterans Appreciation Week events.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Congress returns to work Monday with a basic task act fast to keep the government open and then race home to campaign. After a five-week summer break, lawmakers face a shortened September session with a tight must-do list: Pass a temporary spending bill to fund federal departments and agencies through midDecember and extend the freeze on taxing access to the Internet. Votes also are set on largely futile measures designed to pack a political punch eight weeks before an election that will determine control of Congress. Wasting no time, the House is scheduled to vote Thursday on the spending bill. Several lawmakers have clamored for giving President Barack Obama new authority to use military force against Islamic State militants who have seized parts of Iraq, terrorizing religious minorities and threatening the central government in Baghdad. The militants beheaded two American journalists in Syria, prompting calls for military airstrikes in that country. But the Obama administration has not indicated it wants a congressional vote and there is little consensus in Congress on any legislation, or even whether its necessary. Sen. Jeff Sessions, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said Obama can use force against the militants in Iraq or Syria based on the military doctrine that if someone is attacking you or your ally you can respond. The president ordering airstrikes or taking other military steps without a vote is within the realm of his power, Sessions, RAla., said in an interview. Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, the top Republican on the committee, has drafted a resolution authorizing Obama to use military force against Islamic State militants in Iraq, Syria and wherever else they threaten U.S. interests. Some Republicans are reluctant to give the president any new powers in the absence of a detailed strategy. Obama has pledged to degrade and destroy Islamic militants but has not come out with a strategy for dealing with the group. Republicans and some Democrats have seized on that concession, with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., alluding to it in a campaign ad. Committee hearings and briefings from administration officials will be part of the September agenda, starting Tuesday when Obama plans to welcome the four bipartisan congressional leaders to the Oval Office for a meeting. During the week of Sept.15, Secretary of State John Kerry is set to testify before Congress about the Islamic threat. That same week, administration policies will receive further scrutiny as a special House committee investigating the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, holds its first public hearing. The high-profile session will focus on whether the State Department has put in place recommendations for improving security at U.S. embassies and diplomatic outposts worldwide. With an eye toward the midterm elections, House Republicans have scheduled a vote this coming week on a resolution that condemns Obama for failing to notify Congress in advance about the May swap of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, held prisoner in Afghanistan for five years, for five Taliban leaders. Congressional investigators said last month that the administration broke the law with the deal. The administration has defended the swap and its decision to keep Congress in the dark, saying concern about Bergdahls health and safety required speedy action. Faced with fast-moving crises overseas, leading Democrats and Republicans have called for the U.S. to arm Ukraine as it struggles with Russian aggression, but it is unclear whether Congress will act. The House has scheduled just 12days in Washington. The Senate plans to stay until Sept.23. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who told the rank and file that the agenda will be brief, but busy, said lawmakers will vote on legislation that will paint a stark contrast with the Democrats who control the White House and Senate. House votes are planned on health care, energy and the economy in political messaging ahead of the Nov. 4 election when the GOP hopes to increase its majority. In the Senate, Majority Leader Harry Reid, DNev., is determined to spare his most vulnerable Democrats from Arkansas, Alaska, North Carolina and Louisiana from tough votes and give them plenty of political fodder for the fall campaign.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, SEPTEMBER7, 2014 A11 The patient and any other person responsible for payment has a right to refuse to pay, cancel paymen t or be reimbursed for payment for any other service, examination or treatment which is performed as a result of and within 72 hours of respondin g to the advertisement for the free, discounted fee, or reduced fee service, examination or treatment. *Codes 0210 & 0272 are chargeable codes & eli gible from insurance cleaning. 352-684-1274 7425 Spring Hill Dr., Spring Hill 352-794-6139 6824 Gulf to Lake Hwy., Crystal River WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SERVING YOU AT ANY OF OUR LOCATIONS. 000J5TU Now Offering: Coupon Required.

The recall covers Hondas GL-1800 motorcycles for model years 2001-2010 and 2012. A problem with the secondary brake master cylinder can cause the rear brake to drag, potentially leading to a crash or fire. Honda had received 533 complaints through July 24, including reports of eight small fires. There have been no reports of crashes or injuries as a result of the problem. Honda originally recalled the motorcycles in December 2011 but continued to receive complaints. Honda will send a letter to each motorcycle owner explaining how to look for the problem.Carey offers reward in bucket prankBAY VILLAGE, Ohio Comedian Drew Carey is offering to help police find those involved in dumping a bucket of urine and feces on a special-needs teen in Ohio who was reportedly told the prank was part of the Ice Bucket Challenge. The Cleveland native posted on his Twitter account Saturday that hes willing to donate $10,000 if police in suburban Bay Village want to start a reward fund. The 14-year-old boys mother found a cellphone video of teenagers dumping the bucket on her autistic son. Bay Village High School organized a vigil for the teen before a football game on Friday and school officials have condemned the prank. Carey is the host of the popular game show The Price is Right and starred in the comedy The Drew Carey Show.County sending its message by horseELKO, Nev. A rural Nevada county will send a message the old-fashioned way to Washington about what it calls federal overreach on public lands: by horseback. Elko County Commissioner Grant Gerber said riders will begin the 2,800-mile ride at Point Reyes, California, around Sept. 26 and reach the U.S. Capitol about 20 days later. Multiple riders covering 5 miles each at a time will carry the commissioners resolution touching on various issues including livestock grazing, water rights and wild horses. The theme of the Cowboy Express ride is regulation without representation is tyranny, he said, and commissioners hope its outcome will be an increase in local voices on public land decisions. Its extremely serious, but were trying to make it fun as we go, Gerber told the Elko Daily Free Press From wire reports Nation BRIEFS Rock lobster Associated PressA festivalgoers dresses in a lobster suit Saturday at Bestival at Robin Hill on the Isle of Wight, England.

Al-Shabab names new leaderMOGADISHU, Somalia Somalias Islamic extremist rebels, al-Shabab, named a new leader Saturday after confirming the killing of their previous leader by a U.S. airstrike, a commander of the group said. The Somali militants unanimously selected Ahmad Umar, also known as Abu Ubaidah, at a meeting in an undisclosed location in Somalia, said rebel commander Abu Mohammed. Al-Shabab also stated that it remains aligned with al-Qaida, according to the Site Intelligence Group, that monitors statements by Islamic militant groups.Disappearing debris thwarts searchKINGSTON, Jamaica Rescue crews searching off Jamaicas coast on Saturday said they could no longer see debris spotted earlier, stymieing efforts to solve the mystery surrounding a small plane carrying a prominent upstate New York couple that went on a ghostly 1,700-mile journey after the pilot was apparently incapacitated. Jamaican officials said that possible wreckage from the single-engine turboprop Socata TBM700 was sighted Friday evening by a military aircraft flying off the islands northeast coast, drifting roughly 24 miles off the coastal town of Port Antonio. We would have to assume it may have sunk, Jamaica Coast Guard Commander Antonette Wemyss-Gorman said. The area where the private French-made plane went down has depths of more than 6,500 feet, according to Leroy Lindsay, director general of Jamaicas civil aviation authority. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressThis image posted by the Raqqa Media Center of the Islamic State group, a militant extremist group, which has been authenticated based on its contents and other AP reporting, shows cars that were burned after a Syrian government airstrike Saturday in the northeastern city of Raqqa, Syria. Associated PressKIEV, Ukraine Witnesses in the Ukrainian port city of Mariupol reported sustained explosions outside the city and a volunteer battalion of Ukrainian fighters said Grad rockets were fired at its positions late Saturday, little more than a day after Ukraine and Russianbacked separatist rebels signed a cease-fire following more than four months of fighting in the countrys east. The cease-fire had largely appeared to be holding during much of the day. But late Saturday, witnesses in Mariupol told The Associated Press by telephone that heavy explosions were coming from the citys eastern outskirts, where Ukrainian troops retain defensive lines against the rebels. The volunteer Azov Battalion said on Facebook that their positions were hit by Grad rockets, but did not give details. Mariupol is a port city of about half a million on the coast of the Sea of Azov. Rebels recently opened a new front on the coast, leading to fears that the separatists were trying to secure a land corridor between Russia and the Crimean Peninsula, which Russia annexed in March. Earlier Saturday, the presidents of Ukraine and Russia said the cease-fire was mostly holding, but the truce still appeared fragile as both sides of the conflict claimed violations. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenkos office said he and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed steps for giving the cease-fire a stable character in a telephone conversation Saturday. But, it said, both leaders assessed the cease-fire as fulfilled as a whole. A Kremlin statement about the call said, There was a mutual satisfaction with the fact that the sides of the conflict were overall observingthe cease-fire regime. Col. Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for Ukraines national security council, told reporters rebels fired at Ukrainian forces on 10 occasions Friday after the cease-fire took effect. In Donetsk, the largest city controlled by the Russian-backed separatists, the night passed quietly. But Alexander Zakharchenko, the top separatist leader from Donetsk, told the Russian news agency RIA Novosti the cease-fire had been violated with two rounds of shelling in the town of Am vrosiivka, about 30 milessoutheast of Donetsk. At this time the ceasefire agreement is not being fully observed, he said. He didnt say when the supposed breach occurred. Lysenko said Ukrainian forces were strictly observing the cease-fire and suggested Zakharchenkos claim was a provocation. Meanwhile, the International Committee for the Red Cross said on its Twitter account that its workers had tried to deliver food aid to the city of Luhansk, but turned back after shooting northeast of the city. It did not give further details. Associated PressA burned Ukrainian army tank sits Saturday near a destroyed kindergarten in the village of Kominternove, Ukraine. After four months of war, eastern Ukraine began the first full day of an uncertain cease-fire on Saturday. The truce agreement calls for an exchange of prisoners and establishment of humanitarian corridors. Apparent shelling heard outside Ukrainian port Twenty civilians reportedly slain Associated PressBEIRUTSyria launched a series of airstrikes targeting a stronghold of the Islamic State extremist group on Saturday, killing at least 29 people, most of whom died when one of the missiles slammed into a crowded bakery, activists said. The eight airstrikes smashed parts of buildings, set cars alight and crushed people under rubble in the northeastern city of Raqqa, which is ruled by the extremist group, according to video of the aftermath uploaded to social media networks. At least 20 civilians were killed, alongside nine Islamic State fighters, said the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. Most of the civilians were killed after at least one strike hit the Andalous bakery on a busy street, and the death toll was likely to rise, said the Observatory, which obtains its information from a network of activists on the ground. The airstrikes were also reported by an activist who uses the name Abu Ibrahim and is a member of a media collective called Raqqa is being silently slaughtered. He fled Syria fearing for his safety and asked that his current place of residence remain anonymous. Another group, the Raqqa Media Center, uploaded video of the aftermath, which appeared to be genuine and was consistent with AP reporting of the event. Abu Ibrahim said the local morgue was packed with charred bodies, making identification difficult. He and the Observatory said at least eight members of one family were killed. Other strikes hit a government finance building that the Islamic State used as its headquarters and another building used as a jail, Abu Ibrahim said. It has been virtually impossible for journalists to visit Raqqa, a city of some 500,000 people on the banks of the Euphrates River, since the town fell to the Islamic State group earlier this year. The group routinely abducts reporters and recently beheaded two American journalists. The Syrian government strikes were part of an uptick of military action against the Islamic State group since it swept into neighboring Iraq, seizing northern and western swaths of that country and declaring a proto-state straddling the border. Syrian President Bashar Assads government has also suffered heavy losses against the Islamic State group, which killed hundreds of soldiers and pro-government fighters in recent months as it overran oil fields and military bases. In a separate incident, a Syrian military helicopter dropped a barrel bomb on a bus station in a rebel-held neighborhood of the northern city of Aleppo on Friday, killing at least 15 people, according to the Observatory and Aleppo-based activist Zein alRifai. Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan Radicals backing Afghan presidential candidate Abdullah Abdullah could foment postelection violence if he isnt given an equitable share of power, his spokesman warned Saturday ahead of a meeting with his rival aimed at resolving a monthslong election dispute. The camps of the two candidates former Foreign Minister Abdullah and former Finance Minister Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai said the two were expected to meet late Saturday or Sunday to negotiate a final deal on what powers should be given to a proposed chief executive position, the final sticking point of a national unity government. Ominously, a spokesman for Abdullah insinuated that the election could still end violently. In what appearedto be either a threat or a negotiating tactic, the spokesman said Abdullahs powerful factional supporters are pressuring their candidate to not cede any power to Ghani Ahmadzai. If we agree and the terms of the agreement are providing an equal opportunity for both camps and defuses that tension, it might reduce the prospect of violence, Mujib Rahman Rahimi, an Abdullah campaign spokesman, told The Associated Press. But imagine if you have an agreement that insults one side and promotes the other side and each side firmly believes he is a winner that could be a recipe for radicals to reemerge and challenge the leadership and say this is not acceptable, he said. Abdullah won the elections first round in April but did not secure enough votes to avoid a June runoff. A preliminary count showed Ghani Ahmadzai winning the second round, but both sides alleged widespread fraud. Abdullahs camp says it believes some 2.5 million votes out of a total 8 million cast were fake. A new warning of unrest in Afghanistan Syrian strikes on ISIS stronghold kill 29

EXCURSIONS Page A13SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE JOURNALOFAJOURNEY Editors Note: This is the next installment in a continuing series of articles from the travel journals of Peter and Leslye Graulich. After a brief hiatus, they appear weekly in the Chronicle Excursions section.Day 29Day 29 begins with a smile as we realize that we have almost completed our transit of the Pacific Ocean. Everyone seems cheerful and smiling this morning, as we are all looking forward to some onshore exploration. We spend a few hours in the morning working on our boat. According to the rules, the boat is to be selfpropelled for the length of the pool, which is approximately 60 feet. There is no way to propel the boat with duct tape and there is no place to appropriate a motor on the ship. So, we try some chemical experiments with whatever we can find and work with. We fill a 1-liter soda bottle with vinegar and baking soda after cutting a small hole in the cap. That resulted in a huge mess of foaming vinegar and no propulsion at all. We decide that we will use the duct tape to tape a string to the bow of the boat and manually pull it through the pool. We then attend the first Concorde lecture titled A Day in My Office at 60,000 Feet. Very interesting and I am looking forward to the rest of lectures. At the end of the day, we have traveled 9,285 miles since we left Fort Lauderdale. Next up: what everyone is waiting for, LAND HO! Spending the day in Auckland, New Zealand Looking toward the waterfront of Auckland, New Zealand, while docking on our Princess Cruise ship. Story and photos by Peter Graulich See JOURNEY/ Page A15 PATRICKWHITTLE Associated PressYORK, MaineLighthouses for sale! Actually, lots of lighthouses for free.Technological advances and a desire to purge unneeded properties have paved the way for the federal government to get rid of more than 100 lighthouses over the last 14 years, and it intends to keep selling and giving them away. The sold lighthouses, located on both coasts and in the Great Lakes states, have become everything from museums to bed-and-breakfasts. Dave Waller, who purchased the Graves Island Light Station in the mouth of Boston Harbor for a record $933,888 last year, is retrofitting the turn-of-the-century lighthouse into a private home that can double as a vacation rental. Hes trying to fashion a bedroom as far as possible from the foghorn a challenging feat in a building with about 750 feet of livable space. It just seemed like a chance to have something a little more independent and on your own, Waller said. Sixty-eight of the lighthouses have gone for free to preservationists while 36 others sold at public auction thanks to the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act of 2000, which allows the government to dispose of federallyowned lighthouses. The act turns 14 next month. The Coast Guard, which maintains lighthouses, has 71 other lighthouses queued up to go through the transfer process, and four are at auction now. The Coast Guard owns 254 light houses, officials said. The question is more about which ones it will keep than which ones it will eventuPlenty of light Federal government selling off lighthouses This 2014 photo provided by Dave Waller shows the Graves Island Light Station on the outermost island of the Boston Harbor Islands. Waller bought the lighthouse at auction in 2013 for $933,888 and wants to convert it into a second home and vacation rental.Associated Press See LIGHT/ Page A15

A14SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER7, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: When my mother died, my two siblings and I inherited 24 large boxes of photographs. These include pictures Mom inherited from her parents and grandparents. Many are of distant relatives and acquaintances we do not recognize. They also include hundreds of travel photographs, which I am sure brought back fond memories to my parents, but have no special meaning to us. What should we do with them? I favor sorting out the ones we want, making copies for any family member who wants one, and then tossing the rest. My brother disagrees. He thinks it would be disrespectful to throw away pictures that have, in some cases, been kept in the family for four generations. He says the family collection should be preserved. But he lives in a small apartment and cannot keep them himself. Meanwhile, these 24 boxes are taking up space in my garage. The last thing I want is a family rift over this. Is it disrespectful to pare down the collection to only those pictures that have meaning to us and toss the rest? How do we resolve this fairly? Inherited Photographs Dear Photographs: It does seem a shame to get rid of photographs that have been in the family for generations. First check with other relatives and ask whether they can identify those you cannot, and whether any of them are interested in keeping some pictures. You also can check the nearest historical society and ask whether these pictures are of any local interest and then donate them. A last resort would be to scan all images to a computer, tag them and toss the actual photos. If your brother insists on keeping the collection, box it up appropriately and suggest he put the photos in storage. To avoid acrimony, the three of you might offer to split the cost, which should make it affordable. For all of our readers: Please write on the back of all photographs who is in them and the date the picture was taken, along with any other identifying details. Your descendants will thank you.

Day 30Auckland New Zealand Day 30 begins at 7 a.m. with our rival in Auckland, New Zealand. We docked at the edge of the city. Most of the stops we visit from here on are places we have not yet visited. So, we head to the tourist office. After exchanging some money, we purchase Hop On Hop Off bus tickets. Some of the more experienced travelers that we met on the ship recommended this as a great way to get acquainted with the city. Boy, was it ever. We boarded the bus and it takes us just about everywhere through the city, down to the waterfront, past shopping areas and out to the residential areas and then out of the city up into the mountains and down into the valleys. At various stops we got off the bus, visited a museum or shop and boarded the bus and continued on the entire day. This was the first time we had ever encountered Hop On Hop Off buses; however, it was not the last. We also stopped at a food store and stocked up on some essentials and brought them back to our cabin. Later, we left the ship again and took the Hop On Hop Off bus to a local restaurant recommended to us. We had a fabulous dinner and had the first of many local foods we will encounter during the rest of the voyage. Auckland is a large city with a mostly younger population. The people are very friendly and helpful and certainly not shy. We really enjoyed the stop. Next up: on the way to Tasmania.Peter Graulich first left the country in 1961 for six weeks, travelling Europe and the United Kingdom with his family, returning on the S.S. United States. He has since gathered more than 300 days of cruising with Princess Cruises. Since then, he has visited 97 countries, every state in the United States and every national park. Peter and his wife, Leslye, both originally from New Jersey, came to Florida after he retired from the Camden, New Jersey, police department and she retired as the office manager for a urology practice in Philadelphia. They live in Celina Hills, Inverness, 3 miles from Petes best friend from high school.EXCURSIONSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, SEPTEMBER7, 2014 A15 GREAT GETAWAY (352) 527-8855 3557 N.

The administration is nearing the end of an online auction for the 76-foot-high lighthouse, with a half dozen bidders and a high bid of more than $200,000. ally sell, said Jeff Gales, executive director of the non-profit U.S. Lighthouse Society. There is an end in sight, Gales said. Theres a limited number of lighthouses. The federal General Services Administration, which sells the lighthouses, does not have a target number of how many lighthouses it would like to sell and give away, but the Coast Guard is always looking to shed excess lighthouses that are often no longer critical to the guards work, said Patrick Sclafani, a spokesman for the agency. Buyers and preservationists typically allow the Coast Guard access to the lighthouses so it can maintain the lights, all of which are automated. The administration is the nearing the end of an online auction for the Halfway Rock Light Station off of Harpswell, Maine. The lighthouse is attracting interest, with a half dozen bidders and a high bid of more than $240,000. Thats a good figure for a lighthouse that is only accessible by boat, a feature that frequently drives bidders away, Gales said. Some of the lighthouses typically those that are easily accessed on land are transferred swiftly to historic preservation groups, while others that are off-shore or in need of heavy maintenance languish on the auction block with no interested bidders. Still others attract the eye of private investors, such as Bostons Waller. Officials say the GSAs Boston office has been responsible for about 80 percent of lighthouse conveyances and those transfers have netted $3.35 million for the Coast Guard. That office closed out an auction of New Englands tallest lighthouse, the Boon Island Light Station off of York, Maine, in August with a top bid of $78,000 out of 12 bidders. Winning bidder Art Girard of Portland, Maine, will inherit the 133-foot lighthouse and a challenge: it is located on an isolated, rocky island six miles off the Maine coast, barely salient from Cape Neddick in York. The government also is currently auctioning lighthouses in Massachusetts, Michigan and Wisconsin. Fort Cooper State Park: Fill your day with fun and great memories as you stroll through one of the hidden gems of Citrus County. My name is Jade Bittenbender and I am on a mission to inform Citrus County about the happenings at Fort Cooper State Park. I am a sophomore at Citrus High School, where I was given the opportunity by Friends of Fort Cooper, the volunteer group within the park, to write articles concerning everything Fort Cooper has to offer. Now, let me give you the reasons why I love to spend time at Fort Cooper. The park offers great activities that will please every member of your family. Recreational activities include playing volleyball, walking or running trails, bird watching, playing on the playground and primitive camping, which is camping in a tent without the conveniences of electricity, running water and sewer/septic. There is also a spooky bat house and much more. Lets face it, the sun in Florida can be blinding. Fort Cooper provides a covered pavilion and picnic tables under shady trees where you can gather your family and friends for a lunch date while surrounded by the parks beautiful atmosphere. If you love the sun, there are picnic tables available close to the shores of Lake Holathlikaha. While the park offers many great recreational activities, it is centered on a very rich history. Stop by and take a look at the historic fort site or the first kiosk of the Seminole Heritage Trail. Even though the Seminoles are long gone from Fort Cooper, their story lives on through the trail. The trail will include four kiosks spread throughout the park describing the history of the Seminoles in the area and the conflict that occurred within Fort Cooper. Kiosks two, three and four are coming soon. There is a small fee for admission to the park, but it really makes for a great day. Hours are from 8 a.m. until sunset. Mans best friend is also welcome! The dogs leash must be no longer than 6 feet, and the only places they are prohibited from is the beach area, in the water and on the primitive campground. With a historic yet modern landscape right next door to home, there is no better way to spend the day. Jade Bittenbender provides news from Fort Cooper State Park the first Sunday of teach month.

RISAK CorrespondentIt really started when he was still in school, this fascination with flying. I learned to fly when I was a junior in high school, Scott Bouldin said, noting that when he went into the military he probably had 40 or 50 hours in the air. The attraction has continued throughout his life. Even now, for the past three years on his birthday, Bouldin, who lives in Inverness, charters a small plane and with a trained pilot along, goes flying. Which wouldnt seem so unusual if he wasnt 92. But then again, Bouldin never seemed to be a crowd-following type of guy. He graduated from high school in Portsmith, Ohio, in June 1940 and tried to join the Army Air Corps, but couldnt get in. He had to wait until January 1941, to make it and that was nearly a year before the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, when the U.S. armed forces were relatively small and the antiwar sentiment was great. But his desire to fly was that strong. That, combined with the chance to go to college on the G.I. Bill (No one in my family had ever been to college), were good enough reasons to join. But even then, he found he didnt have the qualifications to become a pilot. I couldnt fly when I went into the service because I was too young and hadnt been to college, he said. I was 18. So he trained in various other duties, from radio operator to gunner, at Moffett Field in Sunnyvale, California, with his tent next door to a more famous recruit actor Jimmy Stewart, who shared Bouldins love of flying (Stewart would earn his wings and fly missions captaining a B-17 over Europe). Unfortunately for Bouldin, who was assigned to the 14th Airdrome Squadron, his hopes of becoming an Army Air Corps pilot seemed stalled. Finally, I told my commander, Hey, I got to get out of here. Get me on a bomb squadron so I can fly on a bomber. His request was granted, in a circuitous manner. He was sent to a facility in Wisconsin for a month of training in how to survive in jungle warfare, then took a train back to an air base outside San Francisco. Until then, Bouldin believed hed be part of the great air war over Europe. The trip back to the west coast altered that. Thats when we knew were going to go the other way, were going to the Pacific, he said. He would end up with a squadron of B-24s operating out of the Solomon Islands, where the Army and Marines battled it out, hopping from island to island. A sergeant, Bouldin was stationed at both Guadalcanal and at Munda Point on New Georgia. His job, he summarized, was to build airstrips after the Marines had taken an island. Construction battalions, known as CBs, would put in the runways and theyd do the rest. Our job was to establish an air base after the infantry and Marines took the island, he said. The CBs came in and built runways, then we came in and put an airport there so you could fly airplanes out a control tower, telephones strung all over the place, radio repair shops. We hopped from island to island doing that. But that wasnt all he did. Bouldin and the others who worked on the airstrips were part of the reserve corps if someone on a B-24 were injured or incapacitated for any reason, one of the trained reserve would replace him. I flew 15 or 18 missions with about four or five squadrons, he said. If someone was needed permanently, the next reserve in line (by seniority) gets permanent placement. I flew three or four with the Snooper Squadron, probably a half dozen with the one that was hitting Rabaul, and another four or five at Buka on the northern tip of Bougainville. These missions, on which Bouldin doubled as radio operator and waist gunner, were different than those flied in Europe. Bouldin recalled one such mission. One day we were on a mission to Buka, and the difference between this theater of war and in Europe was there, you fly over the English Channel and youre immediately in battle, he said. Here, you might fly 700 miles over water before we saw another airplane. Anyway, we got over Buka and the fighters swooped in and were firing (our guns), and all of a sudden the guy behind me gives a yip! I heard what I thought was a thud behind me, and I turn around and hes laying on the floor and hes holding his shoulder, and its bleeding in his hand. I get the first aid kit, I saw he wasnt hurt that bad, just tore a little cloth off and some skin and a little piece of bone. So I taped it up good, made sure it wasnt bleeding, and when I was finished he stood up and started firing again, and I went to my side and started firing. After we got home we started looking around and we saw, there were no holes on my side of the airplane, and there were no holes on his side of the plane around the window, where either one of us had been. Nobody put any holes through the fuselage, so the bullet that hit him in the shoulder in the back mustve gone through the window on my side and just missed my head. Well, he got a Purple Heart for it, and we kidded him about it, and he would say, I took a bullet for you, Bouldin and I would say, Yeah, and you got my Purple Heart. Then hed say, If you had gotten this Purple Heart, youd be dead. Hard to argue with that. Bouldin would spend 10 months on islands in the southwest Pacific before eventually becoming an air cadet. He was training in the U.S. when the war ended; to get his wings, he would have had to re-enlist, but he chose to go to college instead. He would attend Ohio State and get his degree. His job after the war with Howard Industries would keep him traveling overseas, including visits to Japan. But he knows how fortunate he was just to survive the war. You know when you go up on a mission, you might not come back, he said. But you get accustomed to that feeling and you figure youre going to come back. I was in the service for approximately five years. During that time I shot at, was shot at, bombed and was bombed, and I never got hurt. So I came out of it fine, I havent anything to complain about. Except he never got his wings, although he did a lot of flying. And a moment he wont forget is the reception he received when he went to Washington, D.C., on the Honor Flight. It was a well-deserved and overdue tribute.

LARRYBUGG CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER Crystal River High School head football coach Nate Varnadore saw the kind of team he wants Saturday. That team was the South Sumter Raiders. South Sumter (2-0), ranked No. 1 in Class 5A, beat the Pirates 42-6 Saturday in a game that was postponed Friday night due to a muddy field. Raiders running back J.T. Taylor had 10 carries for 148 yards, scoring on a 63-yard run and a 65-yard punt return. Taylor helped contribute to a total of 282 rushing yards for the Raiders, while the Pirates had just 37 yards. Crystal Rivers attempts through the air werent much better, attempting five passes all incomplete. Theres a reason that South Sumter is No. 1 in the state, Varnadore said. They are an all-around great program. That is the kind of program we want to have. We have a lot to work on. South Sumter first scored on a 1-yard run by Isial Flowers with 9:38 left in the first quarter. Taylors big punt return came with just a minute in the quarter. Flowers scored on a 7-yard run with 6:55 left in the half. Taylor scored his second touchdown a couple of minutes later. South Sumter quarterback Reace Kinley hit Andrew Hamilton for a 41-yard touchdown pass. Bokeyon Rice then ran 2 yards for the score with 1:46 left in the half. In the first half, South Sumters Taylor had eight carries for 121 yards along with his two touchdowns, helping the Raiders to a 35-0 lead at the half. Flowers scored on a 1-yard plunge with 8:01 left in the third quarter. Crystal River scored when freshman Tyrek Scriven ran a punt back 55 yards on the final play of the third quarter. The mercy rule running clock was in use during the entire second half. Rays top Orioles in ninth./B2 SPORTSSection BSUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE 000J7VR Associated PressGAINESVILLE Jeff Driskel threw for 248 yards and a touchdown in his return from a broken leg and Florida ended a seven-game losing streak with a 65-0 victory over Eastern Michigan on Saturday. The Gators won for the first time in 11 months and looked sharp in the process. Florida finished with 655 yards, 27 first downs and its most points in coach Will Muschamps four-year tenure. It was the programs highest scoring output since beating Citadel 70-19 in 2008. Yes, it came against a directional school that won two games a year ago. But it was just what the Gators (1-0) needed to regain a little confidence after last years injury-fueled debacle. Muschamps team finished 4-8 in 2013, the programs worst record since 1979, and lost its final seven games. Driskel broke his right leg in the third game, and the Gators were unprepared to play without him. Muschamp fired two assistants a day after the season, hired Dukes Kurt Roper to revamp a stale offense and vowed to compete for the Southeastern Conference title. Florida had hoped to get back to its winning ways a week ago, but the season opener was postponed because of lightning and heavy rain and eventually canceled. So the Gators had to wait another seven days to end their losing streak 336 days in all. They wasted little time putting this one away. Florida scored on its first five possessions against the Eagles (1-1), which got $850,000 for the pay-day game. Driskel looked comfortable in Ropers uptempo, spread offense. The offensive line, which was often criticized last year, opened up huge holes in the running game. And maybe most importantly, the Gators showcased a number of playmakers. Kelvin Taylor scored on a 31-yard run. Matt Jones topped that with a 40-yard scamper. Freshman Brandon Powell made it 24-0 with his 12-yarder early in the second quarter. The Gators even made all their field goal, which was a huge problem in 2013. Frankie Velez hit from 33, 36 and 29 yards. Associated PressTAMPA Two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Gerald McCoy stood in a corner of the locker room sizing up the challenge the Tampa Bay Buccaneers face opening the season against Cam Newton and the defending NFC South champion Carolina Panthers. The Bucs havent made the playoffs since 2007, a drought thats prompted three coaching changes in five years, including the hiring of Lovie Smith last winter. The Panthers, meanwhile, won 12 games to match a franchise record, with an improved Newton re-establishing himself as one of the NFLs up-and-coming stars. Carolina dominated Tampa Bay twice along the way, and McCoy hasnt forgotten. Right now our identity is were a 4-12 team. Until we change that, thats who we are, McCoy said. Until somebody changes who Carolina is, theyre the division champs. The task begins Sunday. The notion of going from worst to first in the NFC South isnt farfetched. Its happened six times since the division was formed in 2002, and the Bucs, Panthers, Falcons and Saints have all finished first three times. Interestingly, no team has won titles in consecutive years. Not that the Panthers fancy themselves as history buffs. Our goal is the same as it is every year, and thats to go out and win the division. I dont think it really matters if were supposed to win or if were not supposed to win. ... The mindset is to go out there and win the division, Carolina linebacker Luke Kuechly, the 2013 NFL defensive player of the year, said.

Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Yunel Escobar scored on Nick Hundleys passed ball with two outs in ninth inning Saturday, giving the Tampa Bay Rays a 3-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles. Escobar reached first on a throwing error by shortstop Ryan Flaherty leading off the ninth, took second on Kevin Kiermaiers sacrifice bunt and advanced to third on Curt Casalis fly ball. After Ben Zobrist was intentionally walked by Brad Brach (5-1), Andrew Miller relieved and threw a ball to Ryan Hanigan as Zobrist moved up on defensive indifference. Miller then threw an outside pitch that glanced off Hundleys glove and rolled to the backstop as Escobar sprinted home. It was the first time Tampa Bay ever won on a game-ending passed ball.AMERICAN LEAGUE Yankees 6, Royals 2NEW YORK Brandon McCarthy won for the second time in six starts, and the New York Yankees feasted on Kansas Citys bullpen in a 6-2 win after Royals starter Danny Duffy left because of an injury after just one pitch. A night after a 1-0 loss in the series opener dropped them 4 1/2 games back for the ALs second wild card, the weak-hitting Yankees scored as many as six runs for the first time since Aug. 29. McCarthy (6-4) allowed two runs and six hits in 6 2/3 innings with four strikeouts and a walk. He was 3-10 with a 5.01 ERA in 18 starts before the Yankees acquired from Arizona on July 6. Shawn Kelley, Dellin Betances and David Robertson combined for hitless relief. New York relievers have thrown 11 innings of scoreless, three-hit relief in their last four games with 14 strikeouts and no walks.Athletics 4, Astros 3OAKLAND, Calif. Jed Lowrie hit a game-ending RBI single in Oaklands three-run ninth inning, sending the Athletics to a 4-3 victory over the Houston Astros. Lowrie, Josh Reddick and Coco Crisp had two hits apiece as Oakland snapped a three-game losing streak. The Athletics were six games back of the AL West-leading Angels coming into the day, but were also on top of the wild-card standings. Reddick hit a two-run double off Chad Qualls (1-5) before Lowrie drove him in with a single to left. Oakland is hitting .571 (16 for 28) against Qualls this year. Luke Gregerson (4-3) pitched a scoreless inning for the win.Indians 3, White Sox 1CLEVELAND Corey Kluber pitched a five-hitter to win for the first time in a month, rookie Jose Ramirez hit a go-ahead triple in a two-run seventh inning and the Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago White Sox 3-1. Kluber (14-9) allowed an unearned run, struck out eight and walked none in his third big league complete game all this season. He had been 0-3 in four starts since winning at the New York Yankees on Aug. 9 and in his previous start allowed a career-high three homers in a 12-1 loss to Detroit on Monday. Third-place Cleveland closed within five games of first-place Kansas City in the AL Central. The Indians are four games back of Seattle, which played later Saturday, for the ALs second wild card.NATIONAL LEAGUE Braves 4,Marlins3MIAMI Evan Gattis hit a leadoff homer in the 10th inning to give the Atlanta Braves a 4-3 victory over the MiamiMarlins. Gattis drove the first pitch from Bryan Morris (7-1) to the top of the wall in center. Gattis motored into third with a triple when the ball was originally ruled in play, but a replay review showed it hit the wall above a yellow line for his 22nd homer. David Carpenter (6-3) pitched 1 2/3 innings for the win and Craig Kimbrel finished for his 43rd save in 47 opportunities. Pirates 5, Cubs 3, 11 inn.CHICAGO Josh Harrison hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the 11th inning, and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Chicago Cubs 5-3 in the conclusion of the series opener that was suspended due to rain. Harrison finished with four hits and two RBIs, but the All-Star infielder limped off the field after making an over-the shoulder catch in short center field in the bottom of the 11th inning. He appeared to have injured his left leg. The Pirates snapped a four-game losing streak, while the Cubs lost for the first time in four games. Fridays series opener was suspended with the game tied at 3 after a second rain delay with one out in the top of the seventh inning lasted 1 hour, 52 minutes.Reds 2,Mets1CINCINNATI Todd Frazier and Chris Heisey homered, and Johnny Cueto went seven innings, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 2-1 victory that ended the New YorkMets winning streak at three games. Fraziers second homer in two days tied it in the sixth against Dillon Gee (6-7). Heisey pinch-hit for Cueto with two outs in the seventh and broke the 1-all tie with his eighth homer. It was Heiseys fourth pinch-hit homer of the season. Aroldis Chapman relieved and got the last four outs for his 30th save in 32 chances, escaping a threat in the ninth with the help of a replay. Curtis Granderson singled was replaced by Eric Young, Jr. Dilson Herrera walked. The runners pulled off what was initially ruled a double steal, but the replay showed Young took his foot off third base after he slid and was tagged out. Pinch-hitter Eric Campbell struck out to end it.Phillies3, Nationals 1WASHINGTON A.J. Burnett allowed one run in seven innings, Ryan Howard had two RBIs and the lastplace PhiladelphiaPhilliesbeat Washington 3-1 to secure their first winning season against the Nationals since 2010. Dominic Brown homered for thePhillies, who have won their last five games against the NL East leaders and hold a 10-8 advantage in the series that ends Sunday. The 37-year-old Burnett (8-15) gave up six hits, walked two and struck out four. Half his victories this season have come against the Nationals, against whom he is 4-2 with 3.57 ERA. Ken Giles worked a perfect eighth and Jonathan Papelbon got three outs for his 35th save. Cardinals 5, Brewers 3MILWAUKEE Matt Adams and Oscar Taveras homered, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-3 to open a four-game lead in the NL Central. Lance Lynn pitched six effective innings as St. Louis won for the seventh time in its last eight games. Trevor Rosenthal got three outs for his 43rd save in 48 chances.

All of the talk outside of the team, and all of the other stuff is just talk. With Newton leading the way, the Panthers swept the season series a year ago by a combined 58-19. The young quarterback threw for two touchdowns and ran for one in each game. He got comfortable. Hes not a guy you want to get comfortable, McCoy said. Hes one of the best escape artists we have in this league. If you give him too much time, hell kill you with his feet or his arm. Weve got to be all over him. Newton had ankle surgery during the offseason and has been slowed the past two weeks by a rib injury hes said will not stop him from playing. Im being optimistic about this whole thing, and I have no other choice but to feel that way, Newton said. I dont want to ever put this team or myself in jeopardy that Im just stressing to hurry up and get out there and Im not able to be what makes me me. In their debut under Smith, the Bucs have been challenged on defense to outplay Carolinas highly regarded unit. The Panthers led the league with 60 sacks and ranked second in total defense in 2013. Under Smith, who coached the Bears from 2004-12, the Bucs have switched to a version of the Tampa-2 scheme they popularized during a decade of success under Tony Dungy and Jon Gruden. With McCoy anchoring the defensive line, and linebacker Lavonte David making play after play, Smith feels he has the makings of another dominant unit. Potential is nothing, you can say anybody has potential. Everybody has got potential to do something, McCoy said. Its about getting it done. Driskel joined the TD party in the third quarter with a 4-yard pass to Jones. Taylors second score made it 44-0, and Duke Dawson returned an interception for a touchdown that pushed the lead to 51-0. Driskel completed 31 of 45 passes both career highs and wasnt sacked. Taylor finished with 68 yards on the ground. Jones added 65, and Mack Brown chipped in 58. Backup quarterback Treon Harris completed his first two passes for touchdowns, connecting for 70 and 78 yards. The only negatives for Florida were a pair of key injuries, one seemingly much worse than the other. Tight end Jake McGee was carted off the field in the second quarter with a lower leg injury. Trenton Brown, a 360-pound offensive tackle, rolled up on McGees left ankle and leg. McGee pulled off his helmet in obvious pain as trainers rushed to place his lower leg and ankle in an air cast. He was then carted to the locker room. McGee earned his undergraduate degree this summer at Virginia and transferred to Florida for graduate school. The 6-foot-6, 245-pound McGee led the Cavaliers with 43 receptions for 395 yards last season and was expected to provide Roper with a versatile threat in the passing game and a seasoned veteran in the locker room. Now, he might be out for the season. Left tackle D.J. Humphries also left the game with a left ankle injury. Eastern Michigan had little go right in the rout, finishing with 125 yards, seven first downs and five turnovers. GATORSContinued from Page B1 BUCSContinued from Page B1

After falling behind 27-18 early in the third quarter, Oregon scored four unanswered touchdowns, including on a pair of runs by freshman Royce Freeman, who finished with 89 yards rushing on 13 carries. The loss snapped an 11-game winning streak for the defending Big Ten and Rose Bowl champion Spartans, who went 13-1 last season. Connor Cook threw for 343 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.No. 1 Florida State 37, Citadel 12TALLAHASSEE Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston threw for 256 yards and two touchdowns as the top-ranked Seminoles cakewalked to a 37-12 victory over FCS opponent The Citadel. The 18th consecutive win set a FSU school record. Winston completed 22 of 27 passes and the offense scored touchdowns on all four first-half drives and field goals on his two third-quarter drives. The Heisman winner sat down with a 34-0 lead. The Citadel quarterback Aaron Miller completed 3-of-11 passes for 46 yards and a touchdown and ran for 61 yards.

The Seminoles (2-0) host Clemson on Sept. 20, the same day Citadel travels to Charleston Southern.No. 2 Alabama 41, FAU 0TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Blake Sims had 214 passing yards and Jake Coker threw for 202 to lead No. 2 Alabama to a 41-0 win over Florida Atlantic in a game halted by lightning. Both quarterbacks got a chance to stake a claim to the starting job for the Crimson Tide (2-0) in a one-sided game. Both schools agreed to end the game with 7:53 left. Sims passed for two touchdowns and ran for a third in his second straight start and didnt play in the fourth quarter. He was 11-of-13 passing. Coker went 15 of 24 with a touchdown in his first significant action but the Florida State transfer missed some open receivers downfield.

Alex Ross ran for 90 yards and a touchdown, Keith Ford ran for 87 yards and two scores and Blake Bell, a converted quarterback who now plays tight end, caught his first career touchdown pass for the Sooners (2-0). It was Oklahomas sixth straight win overall and eighth in a row in the series against Tulsa. It came with a cost star cornerback Zack Sanchez left the game in the second quarter after injuring his right shoulder and did not return. Tulsa quarterback Dane Evans passed for 204 yards and Keevan Lucas caught 10 passes for 84 yards for the Golden Hurricane (1-1).No. 5 Auburn 59, San Jose State 13AUBURN, Ala. Cameron Artis-Payne ran for three touchdowns, all in the first half, and No. 5 Auburn used a dominant ground game to beat San Jose State 59-13. Auburn (2-0) had six touchdowns and 358 yards on the ground, including 112 from Artis-Payne. Quarterback Nick Marshall, making his first start of the season, ran for 103 yards, including a 27-yard touchdown on his final drive late in the third quarter. Artis-Payne, a senior, had his first career game with more than one touchdown for the Tigers. Blake Jurich threw a 75-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Ervin in the opening quarter but had two first-half interceptions for San Jose State (1-1). Quan Bray scored on a 55yard punt return as Auburn led 38-10 at halftime.No. 10 Baylor 70, N.western State 6WACO, Texas Baylor backup quarterback Seth Russell threw for 438 yards and five touchdowns while playing only the first half, freshman KD Cannon caught three of those scores and No. 10 Baylor overwhelmed FCS team Northwestern State 70-6. Cannon went streaking past the secondary for TD catches of 50, 81 and 42 yards in the first quarter for the Bears (2-0) He finished with six catches for 223 yards, the second-most in school history. Senior quarterback Bryce Petty, the reigning Big 12 offensive player of the year, didnt play a week after cracking two small bones in his back on the first series of the season opener. The Bears were also without several top receivers, but still won their 12th straight home game, scoring at least 69 points for the sixth time in that streak. Northwestern State (0-2) has lost 17 games in a row against FBS teams.No. 12 LSU 56, Sam Houston St. 0BATON ROUGE, La. Anthony Jennings threw three scoring passes to Travin Dural, running back Leornard Fournette scored his first touchdown, and 12th-ranked LSU overwhelmed Sam Houston State 56-0. All three of Durals catches went for touchdowns, including a 94-yarder on the first offensive play LSU (2-0) ran. Fournette carried 13 times for 92 yards, highlighted by a 40-yard run. The highly hyped freshman struck a Heisman Trophy-like pose after his 4-yard touchdown reception, drawing a stern lecture from coach Les Miles. LSU freshman quarterback Brandon Harris ran for a 46-yard score and threw his first touchdown pass to fellow freshman Malachi Dupre. Jared Johnson completed only 8 of 25 passes for 142 yards for Sam Houston (1-2), which plays in the secondtier Football Championship Subdivision. Johnson threw two interceptions twice, the second picked off by Rickey Jefferson at the LSU 2. Associated PressSTANFORD, Calif. Andre Heidari kicked a career-long 53-yard field goal with 2:30 remaining, J.R. Tavai forced a fumble to end Stanfords comeback bid and No. 14 Southern California held off the No. 13 Cardinal 13-10 Saturday. With Stanford threatening to tie or take the lead, Tavai came from Kevin Hogans blindside to jar the ball loose. Scott Felix recovered at the Trojans 26-yard-line with 19 seconds to play, sealing new coach Steve Sarkisians first major victory at USC. Javorius Allen ran for a career-high 154 yards, and Nelson Agholor had a career-high nine receptions for 91 yards to help the Trojans (2-0, 1-0) do just enough on offense to win at Stanford Stadium for the first time since 2008. Heidari also kicked a 25-yard field goal in the third quarter.No. 15 Mississippi 41, Vanderbilt 3NASHVILLE, Tenn. Bo Wallace threw for 320 yards and a touchdown, and the 15thranked Mississippi Rebels opened their Southeastern Conference schedule by routing Vanderbilt 41-3 in the league opener for both teams.

Ole Miss scored on seven of its first eight possessions with the shortest drive covering 67 yards. Jaylen Walton started the scoring with a 20-yard TD, and ITavius Mathers and DeVante Kincade also ran for TDs. Wallace put the Rebels up 20-0 with a 20-yard TD pass to Cody Core, and he was sacked as the first half ended with Ole Miss threatening to score again. The Commodores (0-2) still are searching for first-year coach Derek Masons inaugural win, but at least got their first offensive points with a field goal.No. 16 Notre Dame 31, Michigan 0SOUTH BEND, Ind. Everett Golson threw three touchdown passes and No. 16 Notre Dame said so long to Michigan on Saturday night with a 31-0 victory, the Fighting Irishs most dominant performance in the historic rivalry thats now about to take a hiatus. Game No. 42 between in a rivalry that has been off-and-on for more than 100 years is the last scheduled. Notre Dame broke off the series a couple years ago to make room on its schedule to accommodate its new arrangement with the Atlantic Coast Conference. Michigan didnt take it well. But with a chance to take a parting shot at the Irish, the Wolverines got hit with a haymaker and were handed their most lopsided loss in the series. And they were shut out for the first time since 1984, snapping an NCAA record streak of 376 games.No 17 Arizona St 58, New Mexico 23ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. Taylor Kelly threw for two touchdowns and ran for another and D.J. Foster rushed for a career-high 216 yards on Saturday night as No. 17 Arizona State beat New Mexico 58-23.

Jordan, in his first game action, finished with 130 yards passing.No. 18 Wisconsin 37, Western Illinois 3MADISON, Wis. Tanner McEvoy overcame a slow start to throw for three touchdowns and run for another, and No. 18 Wisconsin pulled away from second-tier Western Illinois to win its home opener 37-3. Melvin Gordon ran for just 38 yards on 17 carries with the Fighting Leathernecks (1-1) consistently stacking the box against one of the countrys best rushers. McEvoy shook off a couple bad throws early to finish 23 of 28 for 283 yards with one interception. Leading just 9-3 at halftime, the Badgers (1-1) opened things by throwing on first down and using more play-action. McEvoy hit fullback Austin Ramesh on fourth-and-2 for a 3-yard touchdown pass with 9:18 left in the third quarter before connecting with Gordon on an 8-yard scoring pass three minutes later for a 20-point lead.No. 19 Nebraska 31, McNeese St. 24LINCOLN, Neb. Ameer Abdullahs jawdropping 58-yard touchdown after a short pass from Tommy Armstrong Jr. broke a tie with 20 seconds left and allowed No. 19 Nebraska to beat FCS McNeese State 31-24. McNeese State erased a 10-point deficit to tie Nebraska (2-0) at 24-all with 4:21 to play. The Huskers winning possession started with 1:14 to play, and they were facing third-andsix when Abdullah made the play of his career. After catching a pass short of the first-down marker, he first made McNeese States Bo Brown miss. Then he rammed into a pack of three Cowboys defenders, bounced off Aaron Sam and then zoomed past Brent Spikes on his way to the end zone.No. 20 Kansas State 32, Iowa State 28AMES, Iowa Jake Waters ran for an 8yard touchdown with 1:30 left and 20th-ranked Kansas State rallied past host Iowa State 32-28. Waters threw for 239 yards and ran for a career-high 138 yards for the Wildcats (2-0, 1-0 Big 12). They trailed by as much as 28-13 late in the first half before Waters rescued them on a game-winning drive. Waters followed a key 23-yard completion to Tyler Lockett with a 25-yard run with just under two minutes left. Waters then capped an 80-yard drive that took just 1:31 with his second touchdown run of the day.No. 23 Clemson 73, South Carolina State 7CLEMSON, S.C. Cole Stoudt completed 22 of his 31 passes for 302 yards and No. 23 Clemson scored its highest point total in 33 years in a 73-7 win over South Carolina State. The Tigers (1-1) gained 735 yards against the outmatched FCS Bulldogs (1-1), who were held to 44 yards. The 73 points were the most scored by the Tigers since an 82-24 win over Wake Forest in 1981 and it was their biggest margin since beating Presbyterian 67-0 in 1957. The Tigers are now 29-0 against FCS teams. Clemsons goal in this one was simple get the offense and defense back on track after a disastrous second half in last weeks loss to Georgia with No. 1 Florida State up next in two weeks.

Billy Horschel made a 32-foot birdie putt to close out a 7-under 63 and take a three-shot lead over Ryan Palmer into the final round of the BMW Championship. Horschel, who had a chance to win the Deutsche Bank Championship before chunking a 6-iron from the 18th fairway on Monday, birdied 14 and 15 to take the lead. His birdie on 18 left him at 13-under 197. A few minutes later, Palmer answered with a 30-footer on 18 to draw within three. U.S. Open champion Martin Kaymer shot a 64 to get within five, tied with Masters champion Bubba Watson (66) and one shot ahead of Rickie Fowler (66). Second-round leader Sergio Garcia faded, shooting 72 to fall seven behind.Esteban Toledo takes Champions Tour leadQUEBEC CITY Defending champion Esteban Toledo shot a 6-under 66 to take a one-stroke lead over Brad Faxon in the Champions Tours Quebec Championship. The 51-year-old Toledo, the only Mexican winner in the history of the 50-and-over tour, had a 10-under 132 total at La Tempete in the first PGA Tour-sanctioned event in the area since the 1956 Labatt Open at Royal Quebec. He won the thenMontreal Championship last year at La Vallee du Richelieu for his second Champions Tour victory. Faxon had a 68. Loren Roberts was third at 8 under after a 69. Jay Haas, Scott Simpson and Wes Short Jr. were 7 under. Simpson and Short shot 68, and Haas had a 69. Two-time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen, making his Champions Tour debut, was tied for seventh at 6 under after a 67. He turned 50 last week. First-round leader Chip Beck followed his opening 65 with a 75 to drop into a tie for 23rd at 4 under.Storm leads at European MastersCRANS-MONTANA, Switzerland Graeme Storm of England fired a hole-in-one in his third-round 6-under 64 to lead the European Masters. Storms 16-under total of 194 was one stroke clear of Englishman Tommy Fleetwood, who shot 63 on the sunbathed, 6,848-yard Severiano Ballesteros course. Using a 6-iron in thin Swiss Alps air, Storm aced the 217-yard par-3 11th to win a car worth $186,000. Brooks Koepka of the United States trailed Storm by two after making double-bogey on the par-4 18th, his only dropped shots in a 66. Another American, David Lipsky, shot 66 to be three strokes off the lead in fourth.

Associated PressNEW YORK Roger Federer could not pull off another big escape at the U.S. Open, losing 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 in the semifinals Saturday against Croatias Marin Cilic. It was the second significant surprise of the day, coming after Novak Djokovic was beaten 6-4, 1-6, 7-6 (4), 6-3 by Japans Kei Nishikori, who became the first man from Asia to reach a Grand Slam singles final. Instead of the No. 1-seeded Djokovic against the No. 2seeded Federer who have combined to win 24 major championships in Mondays final, it will be No. 10 Nishikori against No. 14 Cilic, neither of whom has ever appeared in a Grand Slam title match. Thats going to be a sensational day for both of us, said Cilic, who at 25 is a year older than Nishikori. For the first time in nearly a decade since Marat Safin beat Lleyton Hewitt at the Australian Open in January 2005 a mens final at a major tournament will be contested without at least one of Federer, Djokovic or Rafael Nadal, the 2013 U.S. Open champion who did not attempt to defend his title because of a right wrist injury. That trio won 34 of the past 38 Grand Slam trophies, including two months ago at Wimbledon, when Djokovic edged Federer in a five-set final. In the quarterfinals at Flushing Meadows on Thursday night, Federer dropped the first two sets against 20th-seeded Gael Monfils and wound up facing two match points, but managed to sneak away with a victory. There would be no such comeback this time against Cilic, who was forced to sit out last years U.S. Open while serving a doping suspension. Cilic had only played one previous major semifinal, at the 2010 Australian Open, while this was Federers 36th. And Cilic came into the day with an 0-5 head-to-head record. But on this particular day, Federer never was able to solve the big serves and substantial wingspan of his 6-foot-6 opponent. Cilic hit serves at up to 132 mph and finished with 13 aces, including three in the final game. That he would serve effectively was no surprise. What truly stood out, though, was the way Cilic managed to hang with Federer in exchanges from the baseline. The start of Federer-Cilic was delayed for about an hour because of rain; the whole match only took 1 hour, 45 minutes, making it the fourth-fastest Grand Slam loss in Federers long and distinguished career. Just an amazing day for me. I feel amazing, Cilic said. To be able to play like this, I never dreamed of. Cilic is the first man from Croatia to get this far at a major since his coach, Goran Ivanisevic, won Wimbledon in 2001. Thats nothing compared to Japans wait. As it is, Nishikori was the first man from his country to reach a Grand Slam semifinal since 1933. Now he made it a step further. Very happy to make history, Nishikori said. He weaved his way through a pair of five-setters totaling more than 8 1/2 hours in the previous two rounds beating No. 5 Milos Raonic, then No. 3 Stan Wawrinka yet appeared to be much more lively than Djokovic, a guy widely considered as fit as they come in mens tennis these days. Just wasnt myself, Djokovic said.

Section CSUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW Some 30 years ago, I traveled to St. Petersburg with Norm Swetman, a veteran Chroniclereporter, so we could visit his mother. I sat on a park bench on a city street while Norm went to get him Mom from her apartment. We were going to take a walk to lunch. Sharing the bench with me was an elderly gentleman, and we both said hello. In less than 60 seconds, he fell asleep. Norm told me the same guy came out every day and fell asleep on the bench. As we walked through downtown St. Pete, there were other retirees sitting on benches. Some were sleeping. Some were just staring off into the distance. St. Petersburg felt like a city in decline. Or at least asleep. The place was dominated by old hotels, closedup shops and just looked tired. I was back in downtown St. Pete earlier this week and the difference could not have been more startling. St. Petersburg is a thriving city with a bustling downtown. The downtown is home to dozens of hotels, restaurants, bars, museums, theaters and businesses. There were people walking all over town enjoying life in a small Florida city. Its now a city with a spark. No one was sleeping on the benches. The improvements happened because government and business leaders got together and made things happen. They worked together for years to build success. That got me thinking about downtown Inverness and the transformation many of us have seen over the past 25 years. Under the leadership of city manager Frank DiGiovanni, Inverness has made an impressive transformation. The city was once a dying downtown filled with boarded-up buildings and a doubtful future. Crystal River gets ready to take a step forward See WINDOW/ Page C4 Joe MeekGUEST COLUMN Now that the primary election is over, I would like to take this opportunity and congratulate the winners of the election and also recognize and thank all the individuals who stepped up to run for office. Specifically, I want to congratulate District 4 Commissioner-elect Scott Carnahan. I look forward to working and serving with Commissioner Elect Carnahan, and also the general election winner for District 2. After the general election in November, we will have two new members seated on the Board of County Commissioners. Change is happening, and should be viewed as an opportunity to hear new ideas, discuss and debate projects and initiatives to benefit our community and re-energize your local government to work on your behalf. Its no secret that in this past election, there were hotly debated issues and strong opinions about the direction the community is headed. While there may be significant differences of opinion on certain policies or projects, knowing the new member elected, and those on the November ballot, I believe we all want Citrus County to be successful and will work tirelessly to make that happen. It is that common thread and the understanding that we work for the people of Citrus County that will make this new Board of County Commissioners successful. Since the first time I ran and was elected to the office of county commissioner in 2008, and then re-elected in 2012, I have tried to focus my efforts on three main areas: Working to find ways to reduce government spending and improve efficiency, bringing long-term plans and initiatives to our county and finally focusing on economic-development initiatives and policies. On a macro level, those are all areas where I believe we can work together as a Time to come together and improve community See MEEK/ Page C4 PAULCASH Guest columnMy family and I were fortunate enough to travel to Hawaii last month. Of course, it was the political season there, as well. One thing struck my wife Wendy and I: None of the political ads were negative. All of them were positive and only focused on what the candidate hoped to accomplish. Even the political action committee commercials were positive. Perhaps this phenomenon rests in a theme we kept seeing, Practice Aloha. Or perhaps, as one former Democratic elected official told me, There were no Republicans in those races. I actually hadnt thought of that (I am a registered Republican, by the way). Touch! Of course, coming back to the mainland we found this positive, fact-based discourse in short supply. It used to be that we only observed negative ads in statewide or national elections. Over the years, though, it seems that our local elections have fallen prey to this political style. I was recently disheartened by a particular mailer that came in our mailbox. Reading through the flier, I asked myself, Do people really buy this? Sadly, the answer is probably yes. My plea to my fellow Citrus Countians (and America, while were at it) is to take time and really think about, logically, what is being said. When you do, I think youll come to realize just how ridiculous some of the claims sound. I am purposely writing this after the primary election. I am not writing in support of any candidate or policy, nor am I speaking in opposition to any candidate or policy. I am writing this in support of sanity! The front of this flier featured pictures of John JJ Kenney and Winn Webb. Imagine my dismay to learn that Winn Webb was delinquent on child support surely his bank accounts are about to be frozen and criminal charges are pending! Oh, but wait, this occurred in the 1970s. Yes, 40 years ago. Technically, you are delinquent if you are We must change the tone of our discourse See CASH/ Page C3 Associated PressSalafists hold posters showing Osama bin Laden on March 2, 2012, during a demonstration near the U.S. embassy in Tunis, Tunisia. Mosques are being closed down, local organizations banned and at least 1,000 have been arrested as Tunisia carries out a wide-ranging crackdown against those suspected of sympathizing with radical Islamists. While still one of the only democracies to emerge from the Arab Spring uprisings, Tunisias battle against terrorism is raising fears that it might be returning to its bad old days of political repression. The subtitle of this book accurately describes its contents: How the Millennial generation is challenging the Middle East. The author frequently appears on television as an expert on the region. He teaches history at the University of Michigan and has a popular blog on Middle Eastern and world affairs at juancole.com. His book examines recent developments in three countries: Egypt, Tunisia and Libya. He focuses on the events that led to the overthrow of their dictatorships during the past five years. Cole describes how the growth of the Internet radically impact politics in the area. Two factors are central: first, the high percentage of the populations under 25; and second, how the coming of the communications revolution facilitated organizing demonstrations, anti-government blogs and strategic options. This was a new political force against the entrenched traditional elites. Egypt is the most important of the three countries due to its large population, the Suez Canal and its warm relationship with Washington. By 2010, the collapsing economy under Hosni Mubaraks dictatorship stirred up protests. The police and army tried to quell dissent, which was behind the scenes coordinated through laptops. This ability to organize without actually physically meeting was a new political development. Washington and many in the Egyptian military were fearful of the possible rise of the fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood, which had been forced into hiding by the government. The military lost confidence in its leader and supported a coup that toppled him. A free and open election of a new parliament followed. Helped by President Mohamed Morsi, the frag-DICTATORSHIP IN THE AGE OF THE INTERNET Michael FrancisBOOK REVIEW mented opposition was outmaneuvered, and most power fell into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood, which had the largest number of votes (25 percent). At that point, the military took over the government and threw out Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood supporters. As it stands today, a new presidential election will be held. How open and legitimate that ballot will be the military seems confident its candidate will win, meanwhile the youths are back on their computers trying to organize an opposition. Tunisia is a much smaller country (population of less than 10 million), which had been a French colony. It has a relatively high (70 percent) literacy rate. Its politics were dominated by a small group of wealthy business leaders with the support of the military and police forces. There was little evidence of their wealth trickling down to the masses. The press and TV were controlled by the government. Rampant public corruption, with law enforcement officers routinely demanding bribes, was standard practice. Then a single dramatic event rocked the country: In December of 2010, a young man had his fruit pushcart taken by the police because he had no money for bribes. Having lost his source of income, he protested by dousing himself with gasoline and setting himself aflame. This striking act of suicide electrified the Tunisian public because it vividly illustrated the governments corruption and its treatment of its citizens. Despite efforts to dampen the impact of this event, the Web took on the voice of the publics anger. Coalitions of women, workers, students and the silent majority rose to such an extent that those in power fled the country. Elections were organized and held. The old guard had been toppled by a movement glued together by the Internet. Information and debate triumphed. A new government was elected and assumed control.

Page C2SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2014 Out-bullying a bullyScott Adams is still a bully at least, that is what Gerry Mulligan stated in his column in todays (Aug. 31) Chronicle. But gee, Gerry, you are the publisher of the only newspaper in the county and you buy how many thousands of barrels of ink each year? You control what is said in the paper and Scott Adams cannot defend against what you write about him? There is an old adage that you never cross swords with a guy who buys ink by the barrel. So Gerry, you take one heck of a shot at Scott Adams in the newspaper that you control and Adams has no way to defend. Wouldnt that be considered being a bully? Perhaps you will allow Adams to have the same amount of column-inch space for a rebuttal? I bet that wont happen. It is quite obvious that you did this column while you were still angry, and that can be a huge mistake. Maybe you are angry that your favored candidates were not successful. That is why we have elections so the voters, not the publisher of the local newspaper can decide who is put into what office. You can be unhappy with the results you can even be madder than hell but to use the power of the press to let off personal steam? That will bite you in the butt almost every time. Is it possible that your fishing trip with Steve Lamb being highlighted is also a cause of your ire? Who cares who a person goes fishing with? But when you are strongly pushing certain candidates, then you are noted on a vacation flying in a private jet, whether your intentions and motives are clean as the driven snow, it is possible that you can be perceived as playing favorites or that you can be bought. I am not saying this is the case, but it can be construed by some that way. Nice choice of words when you describe J. J. Kenney as an unemployed veteran. That is a real tear-jerker, but if I remember correctly, he is a retired warrant officer from the United States Marine Corps, and so being, he gets a nice pension. He earned it and God bless him for serving, but Gerry, you probably shouldnt attempt to portray him in that manner. Unemployed maybe, but with a very nice pension. Whoever said that the pen is mightier than the sword was absolutely correct, but to use your pen to out-bully a guy you call a bully just doesnt look right. A long time ago I learned a valuable lesson from a former secretary one day when I was hopping mad at someone for something and dictated a letter that would breathe fire. When I was done dictating, she told me that whenever I was that angry I should write the most hostile, horrible, nasty, angry letter I felt should be written then stick it in my desk drawer. She said I should read it after 24 hours and see if I really wanted to send the letter. She said sending a hostile letter without holding it for 24 hours would make it the best letter that I ever regretted sending. And so Gerry, Im betting that you are going to get a lot of unpleasant comments; that you are regretting the tone of your column; and that you wish you had read it over a few times before inking it. Just some constructive comments from an old guy who has shot himself in the foot figuratively a few times.Harry Cooper HernandoA place to worshipRecently a piece appeared and the writer was looking for a church and was frustrated by the entertainment in the place of worship. It seems that everywhere churches are trying to provide a one-stop shop for everything needed in life. I wouldnt be surprised if someone were to somehow combine a theme park or a supercenter with worship. There are still those of us out there who want to stick a lot more closely to the Bible pattern. I dont really like the term fundamentalist because it has taken on such a mindless, radical bent in recent years. Back to basics might be a better way I would want to describe my preference, and that of those who worship with me and my family. Worship God and give Him and His son Jesus the glory instead of people for their entertainment skills. We attend the Church of Christ in Inverness, 5148 S. Live Oak Lane, about a mile north of Kmart on U.S. 41. My name is Darryl A. Cope and my phone number is 352-697-1679. I am the minister there.Darryl A. Cope Hernando Today is Grandparents Day. For most of us, no one provided a more vital link to our heritage and family history than our grandparents. Wherever they were from, and no matter their background, our grandparents provided a first-person connection to our past. Whether by birth or through adoption, grandparents are treasures deserving of honor and respect. Like all of us, none were perfect, but most were there for us when we needed them most. The wisdom of our elders is irrefutable. I distinctly remember so many ways my elders, especially my dear Grandma Minnie, influenced me by example. Here are a few life lessons I learned at Minnies kitchen table: Love knows no boundary. Keeping close to the people you love, and learning to love them without having to love everything they do, is the key to family strength. You dont have to be perfect to be loved. Minnie held tight to those she needed and those who needed her. An open door is an open heart. Minnies kitchen table was a place where others came to eat and be fed spiritually. If a neighbor or their family had a problem, she was there for them. If I needed them, Id hope for the same treatment.The golden rule does not tarnish. Waste not; want not. Finishing our meals or saving leftovers for another time is one of the most compelling constants for our elders. Many remembered the pangs of deprivation, so therefore valued the food on their plates and the treasure of having enough to eat for everyone. Minnie always made a little extra, just in case an unexpected visitor came for dinner. Cleanliness is next to godliness. A clean home is the symbol of how we should conduct our lives in the sight of others. Minnie swept the sidewalk in front of her house almost every day. When our guests come to our door, they should have a clear and welcoming path. Picking up after ourselves so those who follow us have a clean path is a great lesson personally and environmentally. If theres a problem, try to fix it. Minnie knew that youll sit a long time with your mouth wide open before a roasted chicken will fly in. Ignoring a problem is neither smart nor sensible. Even a failed attempt at solving the problem is better than not doing anything. Dont leave politics up to someone else. As an immigrant girl, Minnie felt the sting of discrimination and injustice. She was a suffragist as a young woman, and upon becoming a naturalized citizen, she voted for the first time in 1920. Minnie celebrated that right by never missing an election in her life. Even into her 90s, when she had to helped into the voting booth, she did her duty with dignity. Power is not given, its won with courage and hard work, she said. Im not alone in receiving the gift from my elders life treasury. Family history is a living legacy. Its not only the story of who our elders were, but it defines in many ways who we are.

Williamson You may differ with my choice, but not my right to choose. David S. Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARDGerry Mulligan ....................................publisherMike Arnold ..............................................editorCharlie Brennan ........................managing editorCurt Ebitz ..................................citizen memberMac Harris ................................citizen memberRebecca Martin ........................citizen memberBrad Bautista ....................................copy chief BY ANY OTHER NAME A different idea for the barge canal First of all, we need to stop calling the plans in northwest Citrus County on the barge canal Port Citrus. In the traditional sense of the word, there will not be a commercial port constructed on the Cross Florida Barge Canal. We believe it was practical to look at the option again to see if a port was a viable concept, but it is not. There are not enough raw products or manufactured goods produced in this region nor a private developer who is willing to finance the project to make this happen. The county began looking at the commercial port concept a few years back and joined the state port authority, but the idea of big commercial transport ships using the barge canal will not happen. Duke Energy is not interested in a port on their property. The mining company that now operates on the north side of the barge canal through a lease with the Hollins family has adequate shipping facilities to handle their materials. Citrus County does have a Port Authority and the lameduck commission voted last week to move ahead with a project to build boat ramps at the site. The boat ramps are for use by recreational boaters who want to use the barge canal to gain quick access to the Gulf of Mexico for fishing purposes. Boat ramps do not make a commercial port. It is true that by being a Port Authority in Florida, certain state grant funds can flow to the county. The commission/port authority is also looking at the possibility of locating a private marina on the property to service the recreational boats that would use the facility. Boat ramps and a private marina on the property would appear to be a good and consistent use. Lets not let the unpopular industrial port idea get in the way of expanding recreational boater access to the Gulf of Mexico. The existing county boating access areas in Crystal River, Ozello and Homosassa are overcrowded and have very limited parking for trailers. Moving some of the river boat traffic to the 17-acre barge canal site would reduce the current problem and make things safer for the manatee. Hundreds of manatee crowd into the warm springs at Crystal River and Homosassa during the winter months. A few manatees may occasionally wander into the barge canal, but those numbers are no where near what takes place in the river. Opponents to the county creating a commercial port are now lining up in opposition to developing recreational opportunities because there is a fear the improvements might benefit private land owners. We urge commissioners and citizens to take a deep breath and consider the possibilities. Port authorities, the Department of Transportation, the Southwest Florida Water Management District and the Department of Environmental Protection each have grant possibilities that could help Citrus County expand its recreational infrastructure for taxpayers. Protecting the manatee and expanding recreation offerings improves tourism and the economy. And taking some boat traffic out of the rivers makes life safer for manatees. Whats not to like? Maybe if we can all agree to stop calling it Port Citrus, we can judge the idea without a lot of emotion. THE ISSUE:The port.OUR OPINION:Stop calling it Port Citrus.

He was very compassionate with me and other veterans and fought for us like a bulldog. He is one of the most experienced service officers I have ever been to maybe one of the best in the state of Florida. But the veterans in Pasco County will not reap the benefits of having his skill because of Scott Adams and the senator. We know its not Bill Nelson; its Charlie Dean.

one day late. So because someone was possibly late one day on their child support 40 years ago, they are not fit to hold office? Of course, now my question is (quite cynically), what if we were to look at what some of the other candidates were doing 40 years ago? OK, some of the candidates are younger, but you see what I mean? Is this fair game now? Would we find things more problematic than being a little late on child support? I understand that our past decisions can shed light on who we are and, in some cases, be relevant, but lets at least find something relevant. For heavens sake, a country that forgave a president for lying about extracurricular activities in the Oval Office cant forgive a guy for child support checks coming late four times in his life over 40 years ago? Oh, and Winn Webb as a double-dipper who cashed in for years at taxpayers expense? He was a police officer. So that disqualifies him? Under that logic, Doug Dodd was not fit to run (by the way, I can emphatically say that I totally supported Dougs candidacy. He is a class act and will serve with distinction). Hopefully you see my point. Kenney and Webb are also career politicians, according to the flier, which apparently means having served one term. By this definition my son is a career student at Florida State University. Kenney and Webb spent more time in the Marines and the Navy, respectively, than they did in politics. Webb spent years on the police force. I would say that makes them career public servants. According to these smear campaigns, Kenney and Webb both took developer money to ruin your life. Lets go back to the last presidential election. A TV commercial ran in which a man, curiously bearing a resemblance to Paul Ryan, pushes a poor old lady in her wheelchair off a cliff. This ad was actually saying that Paul Ryan and his Republican cohort actually wanted to kill your grandma. Thank God they lost the election otherwise Citrus County would have experienced a major population decline. Citrus County and America: Reject this! The Republicans dont hate old people (most of them in power are old so they would in essence have to hate themselves.) They dont hate minorities or only care about the superrich. I also dont subscribe to the belief that President Obama hates America, that he is a closet Muslim and that Democrats will not rest until we are a Marxist/socialist country. We can talk all day long about how a certain policy can jeopardize our economy and international interests, but do we have to ascribe to the notion that the other guys opinion on how to make our community or country great is evil and really based on a fundamental desire to screw me over? I understand what special-interest groups are. But the Lambs? Come again?! According to the illogical logic of smearcampaign tactics, we are to believe that only those who gave to the opposing candidate have a special interest. Really? So everyone on your guys donor list is above reproach? They have no other motive for contributing to your campaign? They expect nothing in return? Everyone is expecting something from the candidate they endorse typically that they will follow through with the platform upon which they ran. Chances are, if a candidates mom financially supports her kids campaign, she might really be hoping the potholes in her street get fixed. Curse those special-interest groups! Dear friends, must we be so extreme in our discourse? Lets debate the pros and cons, but can we please stop with the theyare-all-crooks-and-wantto-ruin-you fear tactics? If you disagree with the other guys solution, offer another and convince me why it makes the most sense. Beating the other guy down with accusations and hearsay will only get you so far. As we have all seen, the political winds change; what you are accusing others of doing may be leveled against you the next time (remember, it only takes one term to be a career politician.) Im sorry, but if all you can do is verbally abuse the other guy, that just tells me you have nothing real to offer. We have all seen the how our national politics is in constant gridlock. It seems that the only point Washington politicians want to make is how the other guy is out to ruin your existence. So now we have constant stalemates. Do we really want this in our community? Do you really think a guy is going to want to work with you after you call him a crook and accuse him of being on the take? Yes, there are crooked politicians who are have been indicted and are serving time. But most of what Ive seen in our community (including social media) does not seem to hold much weight. How many state attorney investigations have we had? How many actually resulted in anything? The answer is none. Guess what? You paid for that. And is our community better off for the experience? In the coming months there will be issues to discuss. Some of them may have clear-cut answers (Port Citrus is either a good idea or its not). Most issues, I think, are not so cutand-dry. How involved should government be in economic development? Should the private sector be left totally alone? The answers to some of these questions lie in the middle. We can disagree, but lets endeavor to not attribute the other guys opinion to some nefarious motive. Lets avoid such extremes. If were going to be extreme in anything, lets be extreme in our devotion to our families, to the poor, to our beautiful community and to each other. These are things we can all agree on. I humbly suggest that if you really want to clean up muck in our community, grab a rake and visit Art Jones on Kings Bay. These types of political attacks will only stop when we speak out. If youre Republican and your candidate is spewing this ridiculous nonsense, call him on it. Dont just stand back because you want him to win. The same holds true for my Democrat friends. When you get one of these mailers or email links, just take two seconds and think about what it actually being said. When you do, refuse to take part in slanderous propaganda. Maybe we can come up with our own slogan, but for now, lets just Practice Aloha.Paul Cash is a CPA from Crystal River who holds leadership positions in numerous nonprofit organizations in Citrus County including the food bank, the YMCA and Rotary. COMMENTARYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, SEPTEMBER7, 2014 C3 000IZ68 The Moammar Gadhafi dictatorship in Libya was rooted in a similar small, corrupt business elite. The lucrative oil profits flowed into the leaders family, which used it to purchase art treasures in Europe, lavish homes near luxurious gambling spas, etc. Gadhafi was known for his erratic behavior and sexual excesses. He also had been responsible for the mid-air explosion of a passenger jet over Scotland in 1988. Ostracized by the West, he then tried to open more friendly relations with America and the European Union. It was too late. With the backing of the United States, NATO used air power to increase the pressure on him. Meanwhile, the dictators opponents received funds and weapons from abroad. Young people used the Internet to coordinate anti-government ground attacks. The bizarre tyrant met his end in a drainage ditch while trying to rally his few remaining supporters. A legislative body was founded and a national election was successfully held. However, the problem which has now arisen is that the various leaders of armed gangs which were essential to toppling the Gadhafi regime have been ignoring the elected central governments orders with impunity. At this point, thuggish violence weakens hopes of producing an effective national government that could use the oil monies for the public good. What will happen next in Libya is hard to predict. These three cases show the possibility of the Internet coordinating resistance to the areas dictatorial states dependent on the military to keep the population in line. Professor Cole admits he doesnt know how this new political power will be used in the future, but he leaves the readers with some interesting concluding observations.

Pastor Larry Powers: Giving honor to whom honor is due Afew days ago, I read Nancy Kennedys article regarding the retirement after 37 years of the beloved pastor of the Inverness Church of God, Larry Powers. I would never try to add to or amplify Nancys work; she is incomparable and she certainly doesnt need my help. But I feel compelled to say words of my own. I want to share a few personal thoughts on the Rev. Bishop Larry Grant Powers. No, he doesnt use his full title and would much rather be known just as pastor or at most, Pastor Powers, but out of respect, at least this one time, I wanted to use it all. He has been my pastor for 32 of the aforementioned 37 years. I became a member of the Church of God 60 years ago when I was only 9 years old. During that time, Ive been a member of four different local churches the Lacoochee Church of God, the Longwood Church of God, the Tallahassee Church of God and the Inverness Church of God. Neither Pastor Powers nor I ever seem to forget our first meeting. Back in November 1982, I came to Inverness to work a few months before I was able to bring Cheryl and our family here. While scouting out the area, I decided to check on what was to be our church. There was no question that it would be the Church of God, but I had no idea what to expect. When I found it, I was very impressed with a modern, spacious, stateof-the-art facility. Not being shy, I walked right in and began to look it over. It is simple fact that a member of the Church of God anywhere is a member of the Church of God everywhere. Soon, a young man came out and asked how he could help me. I gave a brief explanation, including that it was my belief that this was where my family and I would attend church once they were able to join me. He introduced himself as Pastor Powers. Again, not being shy and also being experienced in church financial matters, I said rather bluntly, This is an extremely nice facility. How much do you owe on it? Without pride, but with thankfulness, he corrected me as he answered, WE owe nothing. It was paid off 18 months after it was completed. He and I have laughed often about this first encounter. Some of the times it has been when I have again unthinkingly called it HIS church and he has reminded me that it is not his church, but Gods and that, whatever the circumstances, WE are in it together! Pastor Powers and I are the same age. He has been my pastor and my friend since we were both 37 years old and, at our next birthdays, we will both be 70. I have always admired him not just his unfailing fidelity to his calling, but his unsurpassed ability to manage the business of the church. Nonetheless, Im glad to see him retire. Im glad for his sake. Today, I have one final, heartfelt thought: Render to all what is due them ... honor to whom honor (is due). Romans 13:7, KJV. Well done, pastor. Well done.Fred Brannen, an Inverness resident, has been a Chronicle columnist since 1988 and is the author of the recently published novel, At the Bottom of Biscayne Bay.

Fred BrannenA SLICE OF LIFE CASHContinued from Page C1 REVIEWContinued from Page C1 Hot Corner:BOCC Ramp does not make senseThank goodness enough voters finally saw the light and cleared house in the recent BOCC elections. Id like to know when they can start ending the wasteful spending. An example is the new boat ramp on the Withlacoochee River they are willing to spend money building. There already is a ramp under the (U.S.) 19 bridge that crosses the Withlacoochee River. Its hardly used, I might add. And there is also another ramp at the mouth of the Withlacoochee River entering the Gulf. Doesnt make financial sense to build a third ramp.Say no to port authorityTo me its absolutely amazing that we just voted, we the people just voted to replace two county commissioners and yet theyre still going ahead with a port authority. I guess its time to really, really consider replacing the last two, Damato and Meek.Time to get in lineWhy do they not do anything for the people who live here? Its always spending millions of dollars for some project for people that dont live here. Thats not the county commissions job. All of my taxes went up this year like they have every year, but they say they went down. No, they didnt go down, they went up. So anybody that voted for Ottawa Avenue ... needs to pack up and leave. Restrain yourselvesUp until now at election time, the vote on the county commission has been automatically 4-1. But with the new commissioners going onboard, I can see a vote of 3-2 in favor of things. Or even Meek might get onboard and make it 4-1 again in a different direction. I certainly hope so because the citizens of this county could use a little restraint on some of the spending this current commission has been doing. SOUND OFFCALL563-0579

board. What the specifics of each area are and how to move forward on them can, should and will be debated. It is my belief that we must continue to find ways to do more with less and focus on ways to do that through our budget. Further streamlining of services, partnerships with constitutional offices and further internal improvements can facilitate making that happen. On long-term planning and initiatives, water quality and environmental restoration should be paramount to any discussion we have. The continued removal of septic tanks from environmentally sensitive waterways should continue. A concerted, planned approach to cleaning up Kings Bay should be a priority. The state government is going to be putting a substantial focus and funding on water quality and restoration projects and initiatives in the next legislative session, and Citrus County must have its house in order to ensure we will be a part of that discussion. We are blessed to have many groups, agencies and individuals that are each working on making that happen. We as a county commission should focus on bringing those groups together and leverage the opportunity that we have to clean up Kings Bay. On economic-development initiatives and policies, I believe we must focus on working with the private sector to create an environment that encourages and helps growth and investment. This area has been one of the most debated and talkedabout issues of the campaign season. Thats a good thing, and a focus on our economy and ways to improve it is great. Obviously, each commissioner has their own ideas on how to do that, and what we should focus on. It is an area that generates debate and strong opinions on policy. I recognize that one of the major critiques has been the countys focus on certain specific projects and the role that government should play in our economy. Thats a good debate to have, and as a new board Im sure we will have a lot discussion on that issue, but I strongly believe this: Doing nothing should not be an option. I believe our focus on our economy should be on infrastructure investment and ensuring our transportation network is conducive to growth and investment. That means a focus on widening certain roads like County Road 491, working with the state to move forward on the construction of the Suncoast Parkway, and ensuring our road network is in a good and sustainable working condition. I also believe as a local government we should ensure that our regulatory conditions are not hampering growth and investment. In other words, our rules and regulations should not be excessive, and things like impact fees, our Land Development Codes, and Comprehensive Plan should not be too restrictive, where it becomes harder to do business in Citrus County than in other locations. Finally, we must be proactive with regards to encouraging the diversification of our economy and develop policy that helps the private sector make that happen. We have seen the negative effects of what single-industry economies can do to our community, with the downfall of the construction industry and then the power generation industry. We must encourage and become engaged in working with the private sector to invest and grow their businesses in our community. These are just some of my thoughts on issues we face as a community, and once the new membersof the county commission are seated, we can start the discussion on moving forward with their new ideas and ways to positively impact our county as a Board of County Commissioners. While there may be disagreement on ideas or policy, I do look forward to working with the new and existing members of the board to make our community better. Citrus County is a wonderful county, and together as a community, our best days are ahead of us.Joe Meek represents District 3 on the Citrus County Commission. But DiGiovanni and the city council worked handin-hand with business owners to develop an infrastructure in the old downtown that attracted investment. Some might remember that there was a time when county government wanted to get out of Inverness and move everything to Lecanto. That crisis created a new unity in purpose. The city, through creative use of grants and tax dollars, began the process of reinventing itself. Today Inverness is filled with quaint shops, professional offices, government buildings, restaurants, bars and businesses. County government is still based in town and the city is growing. Tourists are attracted through a progressive plan of community events and sponsorships that guarantees there is always something going on in the county seat. Crystal River has been working in the same direction, and an important hurdle will be faced on Monday night at a council meeting. The proposal to build a Riverwalk along the Kings Bay commercial hub will be brought before the board. The countys second city has been slow to redevelop its downtown area. Crystal River has faced the same issues as Inverness parking, older buildings, and a centralized approach have all been difficult. But under the leadership of recently retired city manager Andy Houston, the city began to take important steps forward. Houston understood it takes a combined approach of government and business to get things done. The new city manager, Dave Burnell, is now leading in the same direction. Laura Lou Fitzpatrick has been the business sparkplug behind Heritage Village on Citrus Avenue for more than 20 years. As more businesses have begun to populate Citrus Avenue on both sides of U.S. 19, the area has started to become a destination. The city decided that more parking and infrastructure will be needed. The city purchased the Petrella property at the southeast intersection of Citrus and U.S. 19 for future development. Recently the council voted to purchase the Chamber building and use it as an entry to a municipal parking area between Citrus Avenue and the Riverwalk on Kings Bay. To support development of some of the property along the bay, the city is in the process of adopting changes that will permit greater use of the expensive waterfront land. Key to the changes is a city-led effort to have a community approach toward stormwater retention. On Monday evening, the council will be given a new letter from all of the property owners along the bay indicating their willingness to move forward with the Riverwalk. Much of the money for the Riverwalk has been raised through the taxes paid by residents and businesses in the Community Redevelopment Area. Its just been a long and difficult road to get to the point where the Riverwalk can happen. And like St. Petersburg and Inverness, this project can become the catalyst for moving Crystal River in a new and more prosperous direction.Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle.

Section DSUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Bruce WilliamsSMART MONEY DEAR BRUCE: My son just graduated from college. I told him he needs to start paying rent each month to learn responsibility before he gets his own place. He currently is seeking a job in his field of choice and working 30 hours a week at a car wash making $8 an hour. How much should I charge him a month? Diane DEAR DIANE: I think the idea of charging your son a modest rent is absolutely a requisite. There is no reason for him to live at home for free once he graduates from college. I certainly wish him well trying to find a job in his field of choice, but that may be some weeks or months away in todays world. At least he is showing ambition by working for little hourly pay its more than nothing an hour, and a lot of kids would turn it down. As to charging him, its more of a token than it is income for yourself. You could charge him $20 a week and put into a separate account, then when he gets established, give it to him. The biggest gift is teaching him responsibility, which is what youre doing. DEAR BRUCE: I am being encouraged to switch my IRA from mutual funds into annuities. I know nothing about annuities and wondered if you might give me a few suggestions as to which annuities might be desirable. V.K. DEAR V.K.: You mean encouraged by an annuity sales person. While there are some decent annuities, the overwhelming majority are not to your advantage. You didnt mention your age, but the IRA is already giving you tax advantages. I would be very cautious in switching from a mutual fund to an annuity. On the other side of that, mutual funds are not doing well right now, and you may consider switching your mutual fund investments into conservative stocks.

XcelIT seeks to address the needs of rural communities that can benefit with its cooperative programs encompassing associate degrees, credit and noncredit certificate courses and soft-skills training. SCOREs approach to business education has been to bring the experience of successful businesspeople into the mentoring process. Traditional mentoring has been directed at new business startups and growing existing business.

Khalatbari also runs Denver Relief Consulting, which assists current and would-be marijuana-related businesses around the country, as well as owning a chain of pizza restaurants in Denver. Associated PressNEW YORKLegal or not, the business of selling weed in the U.S. is as wacky as ever.The tangle of rules and regulations that govern whether and how it can be grown, bought and sold create complexity and ambiguity that cause major headaches for marijuana businesses and enticing opportunities for those who want to exploit it. Its a gray-market industry, thats just how it is, said Kayvan Khalatbari, who owns a marijuana dispensary and a chain of pizza restaurants in Denver. The big issue: the nation hasnt decided whether marijuana is a dangerous illegal drug or not much worse than tobacco or alcohol. According to federal law, it is an illegal narcotic like heroin, with no currently accepted medical use. But recent legalization pushes have made it legal for medical use in 23 states and Washington D.C. In Colorado and Washington state, it can be bought just for fun. Entrepreneurs and investors have to navigate laws that are different from state to state and sometimes from county to county. That has given rise to a bumper crop of consultants promising to show the way to success, while shady public companies spin visions of fat profits. Consumers now have an array of new pot-related products to choose from, many of far higher quality than whats offered on the corner. But they must also discern truth from hope in the many claims about all the supposedly wonderful things pot can do.ENTREPRENEURSKhalatbari started his first pizza restaurant with a small business loan from a bank. To raise money to build a marijuana-growing facility, a bank loan wasnt an option. Almost all banks avoid working with pot businesses because pot is illegal federally, and banks want to avoid running afoul of anti-trafficking laws. Also, residency restrictions in Colorado prevent raising money from out-of-state investors in exchange for a share of the company, which is exactly what most investors want. So, to build a 40,000 square-foot growing facility, Khalatbari teamed with an out-of-state investor who paid for construction while trying to establish residency in Colorado. When that comes through, the investor could get an ownership stake in the facility. Khalatbari said theres plenty of investor money sloshing around, looking to fund marijuana businesses, but the terms are expensive because of the risk and the restrictions. Its almost impossible not to get funding, he said, but its not going to be on the terms you want.ITS NOT EASY SELLIN GREENEven where pot is legal, budding business models still adapting to regulatory morass See GREEN/ Page D2

D2SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER7, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE BUSINESS Once up and running, entrepreneurs face more twists. Khalatbari kept his bank account in the name of a management company instead of his marijuana dispensary, called Denver Relief. He was careful not to pay pot-related vendors out of the account, instead using cash, which is common in the pot business. And he didnt make cash deposits over $10,000 in order to avoid triggering suspicious activity inquiries. Still, three successive banks dropped him after learning the management company had ties to pot. We cant be honest and open about where we can put our legal money, he said. They are pushing us underground. He has recently found an unidentified bank that will work with him and a few other pot businesses. Khalatbari cant write off certain expenses the way most businesses can. The Internal Revenue Service prohibits deductions for expenses incurred while selling what the federal government considers to be an illegal drug. That makes his profit lower than it otherwise would be. It also encourages him and other sellers to designate, for tax purposes, only a small portion of their stores as having anything to do with selling pot. These conditions can help a business flourish once its open, however. Wouldbe competitors face the same hurdles to getting started local zoning rules, state regulations, financing complexity or a slow bureaucracy so it can often be some time before the established business faces a real challenge. California rules are relatively lax, and there are believed to be at least 500 dispensaries just in Los Angeles. But Connecticut has approved only six dispensaries. The first opened last month without pot two years after getting approval. Illinois growing facilities must put up a $2 million surety bond to get approval. Washington has awarded 43 licenses to sell marijuana for recreational use and just one in Seattle, called Cannabis City. Khalatbari has plenty of competition, but the profit margin at his marijuana dispensary is 60 percent higher than at the pizza restaurants. Even after the legal headaches, its easier to make a profit selling the bud of a plant for $200 an ounce than it is selling a meat lovers pizza (pepperoni, spicy sausage, Canadian bacon and mozzarella) for $19.99. Its much higher-risk, he said of the marijuana business. But the reward is much greater.CONSULTANTSEveryone wants to be in the weed business, said Adam Bierman, managing partner at a marijuana consulting company based in Culver City, California, called the Med Men. That suits Bierman just fine. Dozens if not hundreds of consultants like Bierman have popped up, feeding off the complexity of the marijuana business and the desire of so many to make it big in pot. Some act as matchmakers, promising to connect investors with entrepreneurs looking for money. Others sell help navigating the licensing process, tips on how best to grow marijuana, or advice about how to manage a startup that must operate outside of the banking system. But many of these consultants have little or no experience in the business. Bierman acknowledges he didnt when he started six years ago. We got our teeth kicked in, he said. Now his firm knows the ropes, he said, but the industry is crawling with people who dont. There are a lot of opportunistic people coming into this industry from every angle, he said. And unfortunately we are part of that. We are one of the companies Im blasting, and I hate that. In February, PetroTech Oil and Gas a drilling services company announced it was establishing a management company in Colorado and Washington to help pot growers. Trading volume in the tiny companys stock rose 13-fold and the penny stock rose to 7 cents per share over three weeks. The Securities and Exchange Commission suspended trading in the stock in March over questions about the accuracy of the information about the companys operations.INVESTORSInvesting in the pot business seems like it should be as easy as printing money. The products millions of users are so dedicated that theyve been willing to risk arrest to get it. To reach them, all businesses have to do is grow a weed and sell the flowers. Pot investing is treacherous, though, even for professionals. There are a lot of large egos and puffery in this industry, said Brendan Kennedy, a former Silicon Valley banker who helped found Privateer Holdings, a marijuana-focused private equity firm. It takes a lot of time and energy to sort through the hyperbole and find the right, legitimate opportunities. Every new pot company thinks it has the best growing technique or marijuana strain, Kennedy said, but few have worked out a long-term business plan that coldly assesses the market and the risks. Growing plants for profit isnt quite so simple. Ultimately its a crop, its a commodity, not very different from a lot of agricultural products that are out there, Kennedy said. Would you invest in a winery? Or a strawberry grower? Investing in pot stocks is even scarier, because nearly all of them are so-called penny stocks, like PetroTech, that trade outside of major exchanges. There are now a couple dozen of these companies, often with names that play on marijuanas scientific name, cannabis sativa, such as Advanced Cannabis Solutions or Cannabusiness Group. But many have tenuous ties to the marijuana industry, regulators say. Canadian regulators issued a warning about marijuana-related stocks in June, following similar alerts from the U.S. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority last year and one from the SEC in May. Five times this year, the SEC has suspended trading in shares of companies claiming to be in the marijuana business. Kennedy said the penny stock companies are full of charlatans and hucksters, who are purely playing on the desire of Main Street investors to get into the industry. One of the companies targeted by the SEC, called GrowLife, makes urban gardening equipment and trades under the ticker symbol PHOT. An October report designed to look like it was issued by a Wall Street firm suggested the companys stock was poised to rise nearly 300 percent. But that research was actually paid for by GrowLife a detail found only in the reports fine print. GrowLifes shares soared 900 percent, to 60 cents from 6 cents, between October and early April, when trading was halted by the SEC. In June the company revealed that the $37 million loss it reported for the first quarter was actually double that, $74 million. GrowLife shares have since fallen back to 7 cents. GrowLife CEO Marco Hegyi said the report was never intended to boost the stock and that legalization efforts boosted shares of GrowLife and other marijuana companies. Hegyi, who became CEO in March, said the company is working to improve its financial reporting. Were more on top of our business, he said.CONSUMERSA decade ago, pot consumers risked jail time by buying pot of uncertain origin and quality in back-alley deals. Now, in many states, they can shop openly for a wide variety of strains with different levels of potency. Pot can be bought in lotions, foods and drinks with precise doses. But buyers still need to beware. Companies are using pots new legitimacy to try to equate getting high with taking care of your body or curing any number of ailments, making extraordinary health claims about pot to push their products. Because its a drug that makes people feel good, marketers want to put medical claims on it, said Bill London, a professor of public health at California State University in Los Angeles and a health claim watchdog. London has no problem with legalization, but said many medical claims for marijuana are false or exaggerated and should not be tolerated. The website Cannabis.org, started by GrowLife and carries the tagline Cannabis is Medicine, lists 17 major diseases that cannabis can treat, including Alzheimers, cancer and diabetes. Some of the chemicals in marijuana have been tested thoroughly and found to effectively treat some conditions, such as reducing nausea and stimulating appetite in patients undergoing chemotherapy. These or other chemicals in pot may someday be found to be effective in treating other diseases or they could be found to be dangerous in ways not yet understood. Scientists simply dont know yet. A Colorado company called Dixie Elixirs sells pot in pill form called scrips short for prescription. These pills allow users to manage both their ups and downs, despite the same amount of pot in each pill, with additives like ashwagandha root. Awakening Scrips are said to provide a stimulating sensation, while Relaxing Scrips are said to reduce mental and physical stress and promote relaxation. Joe Hodas, chief marketing officer at Dixie Elixirs, said the company is careful to not make specific medical claims about its products. Its the regulatory framework that forces businesses to sell (marijuana) as medicine because thats the only way its legal (in most states), he said.

Stephens, whose real estate sales career spans four decades, first worked for the Villages of Citrus Hills in the 1980s as general manager. During his career, Stephens has managed sales efforts at some of the finest, high-end developments on the East Coast. The Welcome Center for the Villages of Citrus Hills is located at 2400 N. Terra Vista Blvd. More information is available at CitrusHills.com. BUSINESS DIGEST Scott Stephens Associated PressWASHINGTON The Internal Revenue Service has lost emails from five more employees who are part of congressional probes into the treatment of conservative groups that applied for tax-exempt status, the tax service disclosed Friday. The IRS said in June that it could not locate an untold number of emails to and from Lois Lerner, who headed the IRS division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. The revelation set off a new round of investigations and congressional hearings. On Friday, the IRS issued a report to Congress saying the agency also lost emails from five other employees related to the probe, including two agents who worked in a Cincinnati office processing applications for taxexempt status. The disclosure came on the same day the Senates subcommittee on investigations released competing reports on how the IRS handled applications from political groups during the 2010 and 2012 elections. The Democratic report, released by Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan, said both liberal and conservative groups were mistreated, revealing no political bias by the IRS. The Republican report, issued by Sen. John McCain of Arizona, said conservative groups were clearly treated worse. The IRS inspector general set off a firestorm last year with an audit that said IRS agents singled out tea party and other conservative groups for inappropriate scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status. Lerners lost emails prompted a new round of scrutiny by Congress, the Justice Department, the inspector general and at least two federal judges. The IRS blamed computer crashes for all the lost emails. In a statement, the IRS said all the crashes happened well before Congress launched its investigations. The IRS first told Congress in June that other employees involved in the probe also had computer problems. At the time, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen promised lawmakers a report on whether any had lost emails. The report was issued Friday. IRS says it has lost emails from five more employees Associated PressNEW YORK Instead of lending to just the government or some faceless corporation, what if your bond mutual fund also helped to vaccinate kids around the world? Or helped finance a cleanwater project or solarenergy farm? More mutual fund managers are seeking out bonds that not only do well but also promote a positive impact on the environment, society and corporate governance. Its a concept called socially responsible investing, and its long been dominated by stock mutual funds. But a proliferation of green bonds, whose proceeds go toward projects with environmental benefits, and similar investments mean more bond funds are using a socially responsible lens. Fund managers arent selfless, of course. They wont buy a bond unless they believe its potential return will more than make up for its risk, no matter how noble its purpose. Thats because managers want investors to use their funds as the core of a bond portfolio, and they know that wont happen unless they deliver equivalent or better returns versus competitors. That will be the best way to start the virtuous cycle, said Stephen Liberatore, who oversees about $5.7 billion in socially responsible bond-investing strategies for TIAA-CREF. His main goal is to deliver better returns than the Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond index, a widely used benchmark. His TIAA-CREF Social Choice Bond fund (TSBRX) met that goal last year and is doing so this year. In a virtuous cycle, Liberatore hopes to deliver strong returns, which will draw more investors. That will give him more money to invest, and the increased demand for those socially responsible bonds will mean lower interest rates for the bond issuers, enabling them to do more work. Liberatores fund owns everything from Treasurys to mortgage-backed securities, and it targets keeping 10 percent or more of its portfolio in bonds that it calls proactive social investments. As part of that strategy, he bought a bond issued by Washington, D.C.s, water and sewer authority this summer the proceeds are helping to reduce sewer overflows into the citys waterways. TIAA-CREF launched its Social Choice Bond fund in late 2012, more than six years after it offered a similar stock fund. Its a familiar picture acrossthe mutual fund industry: Socially responsible stock funds are more entrenched than bond funds. Of the 181 mutual funds Morningstar classifies as socially conscious, 110 focus on only stocks. Thats partially because socially responsible investors long thought they could have a bigger impact because they would have a voice at annual shareholder meetings. Back in the day, the logic was that if you couldnt vote a proxy, it was hard to engage with companies, said Cathy Roy, chief investment officer for fixed income at Calvert Investment Management, which manages more than $13.5 billion. In recent years, socially responsible investors have been presented with more opportunities with the growth of green bonds. The flow has been strong enough that Barclays and MSCI are developing a Green Bond index. A group of investment banks early this year also came together to publish guidelines for green bonds. The approach to sustainable investing has also evolved, Roy said. In the past, potential investments were screened as either good or bad depending on the data in their spreadsheet. Roy says investors now take a more nuanced look, measuring how much a company limits its emissions relative to others in the industry, for example. They lay that on top of weighing a bonds yield against its risk. For many, noble bonds gaining appeal

DEAR BRUCE: Can you explain the difference between a home equity loan and a line of credit? I want to make some major home repairs and need to borrow $20,000, but I am confused. Reader DEAR READER: There both differences and similarities between these two instruments. The choice depends somewhat on the measure of what you will be eligible for. If you want to borrow $20,000, you must consider whether you have enough equity in the house to justify that kind of borrowing. Also take into account the amount of money you are paying on your present loan and other obligations you have to determine if you can afford to take on more debt. Whether its considered a home equity loan, which is a straight second mortgage, or a line of credit against the house, there is little difference. The thing you should be concerned about is how much it will cost and for how long a period of time. A line of credit may not require a second mortgage, but the cost may be considerably higher. DEAR BRUCE: I am afraid that after being laid off from the factory job I worked at for 15 years and going through all my savings, I cant afford to pay for my home anymore. I owe $75,000 and the house is probably valued at $50,000. I have no income or savings left. Should I walk away and let them foreclose or try to go to a credit counseling agency? Jim DEAR JIM: I sympathize that you worked hard, but unfortunately, you are so far in the hole that there isnt much you can do. You should go to the lender and suggest a voluntary foreclosure. That means the lender will accept whatever it can get for the house. In the event that the lender cannot or will not accept that, then you might wish to explore voluntary Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Otherwise, $25,000 or more will be hanging over your head forever. The Chapter 7 bankruptcy can eliminate this obligation. I wish you luck.Send questions to bruce @brucewilliams.com.

Associated PressBERLIN Visit any tourist destination, and youre bound to see individuals and groups taking photos of themselves for sharing on social media. Its a declaration to the world that they were there. Pop stars such as Rihanna and Justin Bieber have helped popularize the trend, too, by posting stylized selfies to their leagues of followers. Even politicians are taking selfies with ordinary folks these days as a way of showing how close they are to voters. So it was only a matter of time before tech companies responded with phones and apps specifically designed to help people take more and better selfies. Several phones unveiled at the IFA tech show in Berlin this week sport higher-resolution front cameras, so selfies will come out sharper. Some even have apps that let you use the rear cameras, too. That means even clearer photos and the use of the flash, if you need it. Promoting new phones as the perfect selfie camera is a natural move for manufacturers scrambling to stand out. The selfie phone race resembles the megapixel race for cameras on the back of the phone, said Gerrit Schneemann, an analyst at research firm IHS. Handset makers try to satisfy a specific-use case by including more powerful features in the front camera. One of the phones Microsoft announced Thursday, the Lumia 730, has a 5 megapixel front camera and software to help users touch up their image after taking it. For even better shots, itll be possible to take selfies with the 6.7 megapixel camera on the rear. Users wont be able to see themselves on the screen, but an app called Lumia Selfie will use face-detection technology and beep to tell users where to hold the camera. With a starting price of $258 before taxes, the phone is likely to be particularly attractive to younger buyers and aspiring middle classes in developing countries. It also fits neatly with Microsofts stated strategy of prioritizing mobile phones and Internetbased services. The phones come with sizeable online storage space on Microsofts OneDrive, where users can back up their photos or share them with friends. Microsofts announcement follows Samsungs new Galaxy Note phones unveiled Wednesday. The Note 4 and the Note Edge come with a special wideangle option, which allows users to fit more people into their selfies by stitching multiple images together. Not to be outdone, PCmaker Lenovo launched its Vibe Z2 and Vibe X2 phones, with 8 megapixel and 5 megapixel front cameras, respectively. The phones will also have a feature that triggers the camera to snap the shot by smiling, blinking or making a V gesture. But some are wondering whether users will really embrace the idea of capturing themselves in high resolution. Im not sure people want selfies to be very sophisticated to start with, said Steve Jones, a professor of communications at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Theres something to be said about having selfies be kind of the modern-day version of the Polaroid instant, but it has its own look and had its own style. For users who dont want to send around highresolution images of themselves without a bit of prior enhancement, Microsofts selfie app offers tools that let them make tired eyes bigger, whiten their teeth and slim down like airbrushed models on magazine covers.

LEEREICH Associated PressIs it a weed or a garden plant? Garlic chives are among those plants paulownia tree, Jerusalem artichoke, mint and anise hyssop are others that can parade under either guise. Garlic chives come from a good enough family, the onion family. There is one definitely weedy member in this family, wild garlic, but many other kin are valuable garden plants. Star-of-Persia, giant onion and lily leek are among those that light up flower gardens with starbursts of blossoms. And the wide, purple, mottled leaves of Turkestan onion add as much to a flower garden as the flowers themselves do, clustered together like fuzzy tennis balls above the leaves. Onions of many kinds, leeks, shallots, garlic and chives all provide delectable fare. As its name indicates, the flavor of garlic chives is more robust than that of chives. In China, garlic chives leaves that are blanched from sunlight for a couple of weeks before harvest beneath an overturned flowerpot are a delicacy over fried noodles. Besides good flavor, theres no question as to garlic chives beauty. The thin leaves rise from the ground in clumps like those of chives, but garlic chives leaves are flattened Shemet scores again for EXITEXIT Realty Leaders would like to congratulate Pam Shemet for being No. 1 agent in sales for the month of August, with five closed deals.

EMILYHEMPHILL Beatrice Daily SunBEATRICE, Neb. A renovation project is chugging along at the Gage County Museum in Beatrice. The Gage County Historical Society recently received a $10,000 grant from the Martha and Margaret Thomas Foundation to renovate the 1887 caboose outside the museum. The society will add $1,000 to the amount and will pay for anything beyond the $11,000 needed to complete the renovation, the Beatrice Daily Sunreported. Research began about three months ago when local resident Marvin Kenfield started looking at old train cars. Kenfield has traveled Nebraska and other states researching appropriate paint colors, dcor and structure for Chicago, Burlington and Quincy drover cars like the one at the museum. Everything was just mismatched and mashed in here, Kenfield said about the caboose. Gage County Historical Society Director Lesa Arterburn said she and Kenfield determined the original paint color of the cars interior from the back of a box used to hold emergency flares. They are now trying to track down the code for that particular color, called Gold Okra, to see if their paint manufacturer can replicate it. The window trim inside and the exterior of the car will remain red. Every step of the way, between Marv and I, we check and recheck to make sure were doing it right, Arterburn said. The two are using a book titled, The Burlington Waycars by Randall Danniel, Marian Reis and Joseph Douda, to piece the original details of the caboose together. The authors donated a copy of the 768-page book, valued at $125, to the society to use in its research. According to the historical society, the car was built in December 1887 in Galesburg, Ill., and given the identification number CB&Q-205. It was refurbished between 1904 and 1906 and given a new number, 14581. The caboose was updated again in the 1920s and once more in the 1960s. In 1975, railroad enthusiast Mark Heinz noticed the caboose sitting in Lincoln and convinced Burlington Northern to give it to the museum. The Thomas sisters father, Dr. C.W. Thomas, was appointed as the railroad surgeon for C.B. and Q in Wymore in 1927, making the renovation of the caboose a cause dear to the family. Arterburn said the historical society was only going to repaint the caboose and spruce it up a bit, but the grant allowed them to expand the project. (The Thomas Sisters) made it possible for us to do the details, she said. The historical society is focusing on restoring the train car back to its 1906 glory, the same year the passenger station housing the museum was built. At that time, the caboose was used as a way car or drover car for cowboys and horsemen to ride in. They would drive cattle to market with horses and then catch a train back, Kenfield said. The car originally was equipped with six bunks, storage space for bedrolls and saddles, a small table and icebox, a sink and a bathroom. The society is looking for a sink, dated to 1906, to place inside the caboose, as well as two lanterns from the era to hang on the walls. Kenfield said the project should be complete within the next two months, depending on the weather. He is working on restoring the inside of the caboose, while Marvin Camacho-Cook is working on the exterior of the car, adding a rubberized roof and replacing old boards. Once complete, the caboose will serve as a classroom for students to learn about way cars and railroad history. Its an evolving process. The caboose will grow with time, Arterburn said. Note from Leslie: Hello Chroniclereaders, and welcome to the Gardener Gal column. Im excited to be of help to all my new gardening friends and neighbors. While Im committed to answering your questions as accurately as possible, my other goal is make this column laid back and fun to read. Hope you enjoy!Dear Gardener Gal: I have gardened all my life, but since coming to Florida I have had very poor results with both my vegetable garden and with flowers. I know many other people who have the same complaint. What is the trick to gardening here in Florida? Ready To Buy Plastic FlowersDear Ready To Buy Plastic Flowers: First off, please dont go the faux flower route. There is a better way! It is important to understand our 9A planting zone. Here, we gardeners must deal with freezing temps in winter, hot, humid summers and, in many yards, sandy soil. That said, you really can still have a beautiful garden. The trick is to roll with our conditions and stop trying to recreate the gardens you had back home. The most important Florida gardening principle is to choose the right plant for the right place. This will save you lots of time and money. Be warned just because a plant is sold locally doesnt mean it will thrive under our conditions. Do your homework when selecting plants and research the best time to plant them. The University of Florida has great publications allowing you to check a plants requirements and final size. They also have an excellent vegetable gardening guide. Other helpful tricks include raised planting beds, amending the soil, proper garden location, etc. You really wont need to reinvent the wheel. If you were a good gardener back home, you will be one here in Florida as well. Remember, your UF/IFAS Extension Office is always ready to help. Dear Gardener Gal: Im having a problem with mushrooms in my lawn. They are large, white and seem to be growing in circles. My main concern is for my dogs. Im afraid they will eat the mushrooms and be poisoned. My wife thinks we should spray a fungicide. I think digging them out is the answer. Please settle this for us, as full rights to the TV remote for the weekend are hanging on your answer. Thanks in advance. Ray RemoteDear R.R.: Wow. Pressure Not sure if this bet will be completely settled after my answer, but here goes: Neither of you is 100 percent correct, but you are much closer to the correct, and easiest answer. A fungicide will not work well on the mushrooms. The thing to keep in mind is the part of the mushroom appearing in your yard is only the fruit of a muchCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER7, 2014E13 E4Sunday, September 7, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE C ARL M ANUCCI 352-302-9787 S USAN M ULLEN 352-422-2133 000J7M3 TERRA VISTA & BRENTWOOD Rentals Needed (T ERMS 6 MONTHS OR LONGER ) DETACHED VILLA, 3 BED, 2 BATH, 2-CAR Open & bright definitely describes this beautifully updated villa located on a cul-de-sac in Brentwood.

shades of orange and turquoise. The result: playful but not immature. Another approach: Red, white and blue has become a modern classic forboys and girls, Flynn says. For a masculine touch, Im a fan of sticking with rich navy and fire-engine red. Girl spaces are an excellent fit for more muted blues such as robins egg or sea foam, and more poppy shades of red such as cherry, he says. What if your kids have their hearts set on colors you think wont work? Respect their input, Burnham says, but adjust the shades as necessary: Its your house, too. If you dont want a school-busyellow wall, what can you live with? Maybe a dijon, or maybe the school-bus yellow is his bedside lamp. If your daughter wants purple, maybe its a gray lavender, she says, or another shade of purple that she wont get sick of in six months. For walls, tweens andteens tend to favor bold patterns, and find wallpaper cool due to its vintage, retro appeal, Flynn says. If wallpaper is too much of a commitment, he adds, consider a graphic treatment on the walls with paint. Stripes are classic and gender-neutral, plus theyre not too difficult to paint. Toys, trophies, books, papers and a whole lot of electronics: Kids have an awful lot of stuff. Burnham suggests choosing a wall that can accommodate 18 inches of depth or 22 inches of depth, and have built-in cabinets and shelves installed. Built-in cabinetry is so very handy in a tween room, agrees Workman. It allows an easy transition to a teenage space because youre not dealing with furniture that the child may no longer like. Custom carpentry can be expensive, but its an investment in your homes value. You can save money by using less expensive wood or MDF (medium-density fiberboard manufactured to look like wood). And dont be afraid to use Ikea as a resource for inexpensive cabinetry that can be given a built-in look by adding crown molding and baseboards, Workman says. For free-standing storage pieces, Flynn suggests hitting a flea market or garage sale: This way, the tween hassomething cool that becomes a huge part of their rooms design, but also is packed with practicality. Some of my go-toitems are Danish modern desks with sleek drawers, rustic metal lockers and three-drawer dressers to use as nightstands. Tweens are still finding themselves, so its tricky to decorate their rooms with one particular style, Flynn says. His preferred style for tweens? Eclectic. Workman agrees that vintage pieces especially those already banged-up and scratched to perfection are perfect for older kids bedrooms. Vintage chairs can be recovered in fresh fabrics, and antique furniture can shine with a new coat of glossy paint. I like to use vintage items, and industrial style for a tween boys bedroom, Workman says. I created a huge lighted sign out of tin letters that spelled out the boys name. There was a definite cool factor to this, and its the type of ornamentation that wont be too baby later on. To tie disparate flea-market finds together, keep the color scheme consistent. And to protect the tops of desks, dressers and tables, Burnham advises having a piece of glass cut to cover them. I am a real believer in creating a kids/tween/teen room that utilizes classic adult fabrics and furnishings, Workman says. I had a client that had no fear using antiques in her childrens rooms, and those children had a deep respect not only for their own space but for the rest of the home as well. She never had to redecorate those rooms, because they went from child to adult with only a change from stuffed animals and toys to guitars and drums.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER7, 2014E5 E12Sunday, September 7, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE CALL Roy Bass TODAY (352) 726-2471 CALL Roy Bass TODAY (352) 726-2471 After Hours (352) 302-6714 All Citrus Realty INC All Citrus Realty INC Email: roybass@tampabay.rr.com www.allcitrusrealty.com 000J8C4 OPEN LAKEFRONT-HERNANDO FL 1/2 acre on the lake.

All major categories of construction showed gains in an encouraging sign that spending on building projects will help boost the economy in the second half of this year. Construction spending rose 1.8 percent in July, the biggest onemonth gain since May 2012, the Commerce Department reported Tuesday. It followed a 0.9 percent decline in June, the largest setback in a year. That decline had been blamed in part on soggy weather which depressed construction activity in many parts of the country. The July rebound pushed total construction to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $981.3 billion, the highest level since December 2008. Spending on housing, non-residential and government projects all increased. Construction spend is now 8.2 percent higher than it was a year ago as it continues to advance following a deep plunge during the Great Recession when builders sharply cut back because of a glut of unsold homes. Housing construction was up 0.7 percent in July to an annual rate of $358.1 billion after two months of declines. Spending on single-family homes rose 0.5 percent and is 9.4 percent higher than a year ago while apartment construction rose 0.2 percent and is 41 percent higher than a year ago. Spending on non-residential projects increased 2.1 percent to an annual rate of $343.6 billion with the strength led by gains in hotel construction, electric power transmission and manufacturing. Spending on government projects rose 3 percent, the largest gain since October. Spending on state and local projects was up 3.4 percent, offsetting a 1.1 percent drop in federal construction spending. A slump in construction in the winter contributed to the economy, as measured by the gross domestic product, shrinking at an annual rate Construction spending up 1.8 percent in July Associated PressAconstructionworker is seen on a 36 floor high rise condominium in Miami.

Saw Palmetto, armed with saw teeth on the leaf stems. The dwarf sabals have smooth leaf stems and underground trunks so appear as a oneleaf-tall clusters of fronds. Etonia sheds long filaments from the edges of its frond segments, while S. minorrarely has such filaments. Long flower stalks in June and July are below the leaves in etonias,but stand erect above the fronds ofS. minor. The green-colored Saw Palmetto generally has prostrate trunks simple plump stems created as old leaves are shed. Occasionally a Saw Palmetto in a wind-protected location will have an arborescent form with an erect trunk. Palms do not have woody trunks with growth rings like trees. Rather, their stems are full of long, vascular bundles. Silver Saw Palmetto is a recent development, and one of the fastest growing palms Ive seen. Originally occurring on the east Florida coast near Palm Beach, it is now popular in gardens from Key West to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It has been extensively propagated for its lovely silver-blue color and fast growth in nurseries and gardens. Beware: Silver Saw Palmetto can spread 15 feet in diameter in about 15 years. Central Ridge Library in Beverly Hills had many Silvers planted too close to the entry walk in its original landscape design. They had to be removed as they grew too big and too fast. Dunnellon Public Library has recently added slow-growing Sabal etonias to the entry beds flanking its front doors. Volunteer Friends of Dunnellon Library planted green and Silver Saw Palmettos in the native buffer screen along the east property line where the plants will have room to grow to maturity. The fifth native palm of Central Florida is Rhapidophylum histrix, Needle Palm. It is a slow-growing, cluster palm which sprouts baby suckers radiating from the base of the parent. After several years, the whole cluster could be lifted and well-rooted offsets surgically removed with their attached roots to propagate new plants. Leaves are palmate like a hand, with no midrib. There are long, black, needle-like spines clustered around the base and lower stem to deter foraging wildlife seeking to eat the palm seeds. Needle Palm eventually grows a stout trunk. Snowbirds, tourists and homesteading residents love to see tropical palms. The pan-tropical Coconut Palm, Cocos nucifera, can produce up to 60 huge nuts a year. These tasty, useful nuts are the biggest seed in the world. They are used for food, drink, candles, wax, soap, oil, thatched roofs, woven mats, hats and more. Although a true tropical, it can be grown in warmer protected spots as far north as Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic Coast. Inland and once the warming Gulf Stream is pushed offshore by Cape Canaveral, central and north Florida are too cold for Coconut Palm. The exotic Sago cycads King, Queen, Prince and Emperor Sagos have cones like pines, not flowers like palms. To see examples of the five native palms, visit Dunnellon Public Librarys rejuvenated planting beds. As funds become available, the Friends hope to install name and information signs on dozens of native plants in the park-like landscape. With careful forethought as to a plants mature size, any home garden can have a selection of maintenance-free palms.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant. Semi-retired, she grows thousands of native plants. Visitors are welcome to her Dunnellon, Marion County, garden.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac also said Thursday the average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, slipped to 3.24 percent from 3.25 percent. At its 52-week low of 4.10 percent, the rate on a 30-year mortgage is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Federal Reserve has been trimming its monthly bond purchases, which are intended to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The purchases are set to end in October. The low rates appear to have boosted U.S. home sales. Also, moderating increases in home prices such as occurred in July should help support sales by making homes more affordable. Real-estate data provider CoreLogic reported Tuesday that home prices rose in July but at a slower rate compared with earlier this year. Greater affordability has helped the housing market recover over the spring and summer after sales and construction fell earlier this year. Sales of existing homes rose for a fourth straight month in July to their strongest pace in nine months. And a measure of signed contracts also increased in July, suggesting that final sales will rise further in coming months. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was 0.5 point, unchanged from last week. John gives his opinion on antique furniture pieces Dear John: We have some family heirlooms and cannot seem to find them listed in any books to determine their value. The rocker, we believe, is more than 100 years old. Can you tell us anything about its history and value? R.H., Internet Dear R.H.: Your demiarm carved rocker was made in America. The time of production is late 19th century. Rockers like this were manufactured in large quantities and often marketed through mail order catalogs like Sears & Roebuck, Montgomery Ward, etc. Potential dollar value is less than $100. Dear John: I hope you can tell me what my pretty vase is worth and how old it might be. All I know is what my grandmother told me. She said it was made in England by a famous company. There is some information on the bottom, which I have put on the back of the photographs. It is almost 12 inches tall. There are no cracks or chips anywhere on the vase. Thank you for helping with this request. R.R., Internet Dear R.R.: You are correct, the porcelain vase is very attractive. It was made by Royal Worcester in England. Royal Worcester is recognized worldwide by collectors as one of the premier porcelain manufactories in England.

There are many species of palms that can be grown in Florida, but only 12 are native to our subtropical Sunshine State. With an average of 250 sunny days per year, about 50 inches of rainfall, warm, humid summers and mild winters, Florida is an ideal place to grow palms. There are far more exotic palms from Asia, Africa and South America than native palms in Florida gardens. Of the 12 Florida palms, five occur naturally in the tricounty area of Central Florida in cold zones 8-9. Floridas state tree is theSabal palmettoor Sabal Palm, formerly prepared and eaten like cabbage. Cutting out the heart of a Sabal palmetto for palm hearts kills the tree, as it is a monocot having only one growth point. Sabal Palm is naturally resistant to hurricane force winds. It withstands flooding and inundation after summer storms. Once mature, it needs no pruning. Old, dry fronds hanging down from the canopy are favorite roosts and nurseries for bats. Bats in turn consume thousands of pesky insects, like mosquitos, every night. Three other native palms that grow in Marion, Citrus and Levy Counties are dwarf, trunkless species: Sabal etonia, Scrub Palmetto; Sabal minor, Blue-stem Palmetto; and the widespread Serenoa repens, of 2.1 percent in the January-March quarter. That was the biggest plunge in GDP since the first quarter of 2009 during the depths of the Great Recession. But the economy rebounded sharply in the April-June quarter, growing at an annual rate of 4.2 percent. Economists think economic growth will continue at a solid pace in the second half of this year although an initial forecast of 3 percent growth in the July-September quarter may be trimmed following a report Friday that consumer spending fell in July. Economists remain optimistic that Americans will resume shopping in coming months, helped by rising employment and stronger consumer confidence. larger organism underground. This organism is busy decomposing organic matter in your yard, giving you better soil. Actually, mushrooms can be considered a sign of a healthy little ecosystem. Your idea of digging them out is on the right track, but a bit over the top. Rather than digging holes in your lawn, just kick the little buggers over, retrieve them and throw them away. Always think safety first and wash hands after handling (or wear gloves) and check the yard for new shrooms daily before releasing your pups.

Dear John: Here is a photograph of my china cabinet, full of treasures. We used to live in Michigan, now we live in Hernando and enjoy reading your articles in the Citrus County Chronicle. A friend asked me to tell you that they enjoy the column especially because of your straightforward responses to readers questions. Anyway, I am curious about the age and value of my china cabinet. It is made of oak and has removable oak shelves. The glass panels on the sides are beveled but the front door glass is not. I was told a couple of years back it was worth $1,250 what do you think? J.F., Internet Dear J.F.: The china cabinet was made in America, likely in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The time of production is late 19th to early 20th century. They were produced in large quantities by numerous furniture companies. Oak china cabinets were selling for much higher prices in the 1990s; then reproductions entered the scene, and prices dropped. It would be a lucky day to get $1,250 for it due to a lack of interest in the style currently. Dear John: My aunt left me her button collection. There are 200 carded pages of buttons nicely displayed with short comments alongside each button. Then there are shoeboxes full of loose buttons. We knew she collected buttons, but had no idea of the size of her collection. No one in the family wants the collection. What do you suggest we should do with it all? C.E., Internet Dear C.E.: Since no one in the family wants the button collection, it would be best to get in touch with a collecting club. The National Button Society has been around since the 1930s. I suggest you contact them about the collection. The website is www.nationalbuttonsociety.org. Good luck.John Sikorski has been a professional in the antiques business for 30 years.

And rather than being topped by fuzzy, pink heads, like chives, garlic chives flower stalks are capped by small, star-shaped, white flowers clustered together to create a larger star. Garlic chives flowers over a long period in late summer, and are also decorative dried. Those flowers are followed by seeds, and thats when garlic chives show a troublesome side: The plant unabashedly spreads its seeds everywhere. No problem, you may remark: Cilantro and dill also are prolific self-seeders. Yes, they are. And you can easily yank out the excess or errant seedlings of those two herbs. A quick tug removes any problem plant, roots and all. Give garlic chives a similar yank, though, and the strappy leaves either slip through your fingers or snap off. The thick roots which also spread, but nothing like the seedlings remain in the ground to re-sprout. I planted garlic chives a number of years ago and became uneasy when it started to spread around the garden willy nilly. V isions of my garden given over to this plant prompted me to weed out every last trace of it. The plant then showed up a hundred feet from the original planting. At this site, though, against a rock wall and beneath some dense shrubs, its spread is kept in check. And a sweep of garlic chives there looks pretty. If you are bold enough to grow garlic chives, promise to rigorously cut back spent flowers before they mature seeds if you want to contain growth. Beyond that, garlic chives are an easy and pretty plant to grow for the flower, vegetable or herb garden. Like other members of the onion family, it thrives best in full sun and moderately rich soil. One way to start a planting of garlic chives is to beg a division from a friend or neighbors clump. Dig up a section, replant it and keep it moist until established. Seed is another way to begin a planting. As you might guess, the seed sprouts readily in about a week.

But decorating a bedroom for a tweenage child is more complicated. Its a great place to give growing adolescents some creative freedom. But will they reject at age 12 the color palette and furniture they begged for when they were 10? Kids grow up fast enough that parents may not want to rush the process by removing all childhood whimsy from their rooms. But we also dont want to redecorate each time our kids get just a bit more mature. So were left walking the line between playful and Mom-Icant-believe-you-bought-me-thisfurniture. Here, designers Michelle Workman of Michelle Workman Interiors, Brian Patrick Flynn or Flynnside Out Productions and Betsy Burnham of Burnham Design offer advice on designing a tween bedroom that has ample storage, homework space and enough cool style to keep kids happy year after year. Kids love color, but its practical to start with a neutral base. Flynn suggests going all-white on walls and ceiling but adding texture to keep all-white from reading flat or sterile. I use 1-inch-by-10-inch pine planks on the walls and install it horizontally, he says, then have it all whitewashed or painted solidly. This brings architecture to the room and also creates alinear backdrop for showcasing favorite things. Workman recently designed a bedroom for a 10-year-old boy with gray walls and cabinetry. Gray allows you to layer either cool or warm colors on top, she says, whereas beige tends to only work with warm colors, and then the room becomes too warm. She added a navy leather sofa (a pullout for sleepovers, she says, and leather only gets better with age), plus a rug, throw pillows, an ottoman and chairs that included Associated PressDesigner Betsy Burnham recommends having a sheet of glass cut to fit the top of a childs desk, as she did for the bedroom pictured here, in order to protect the furniture from wear and tear. Red, white and blue can be the perfect color palette for a preteens bedroom, according to interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn. Decorating bedrooms for older kids can be a balancing act, designers say See DILEMMA/ Page E12 A preteen girls bedroom designed by Burnham Design, where books, trinkets, trophies and keepsakes are all displayed and stored neatly thanks to built-in bookshelves.

But decorating a bedroom for a tweenage child is more complicated. Its a great place to give growing adolescents some creative freedom. But will they reject at age 12 the color palette and furniture they begged for when they were 10? Kids grow up fast enough that parents may not want to rush the process by removing all childhood whimsy from their rooms. But we also dont want to redecorate each time our kids get just a bit more mature. So were left walking the line between playful and Mom-Icant-believe-you-bought-me-thisfurniture. Here, designers Michelle Workman of Michelle Workman Interiors, Brian Patrick Flynn or Flynnside Out Productions and Betsy Burnham of Burnham Design offer advice on designing a tween bedroom that has ample storage, homework space and enough cool style to keep kids happy year after year. Kids love color, but its practical to start with a neutral base. Flynn suggests going all-white on walls and ceiling but adding texture to keep all-white from reading flat or sterile. I use 1-inch-by-10-inch pine planks on the walls and install it horizontally, he says, then have it all whitewashed or painted solidly. This brings architecture to the room and also creates alinear backdrop for showcasing favorite things. Workman recently designed a bedroom for a 10-year-old boy with gray walls and cabinetry. Gray allows you to layer either cool or warm colors on top, she says, whereas beige tends to only work with warm colors, and then the room becomes too warm. She added a navy leather sofa (a pullout for sleepovers, she says, and leather only gets better with age), plus a rug, throw pillows, an ottoman and chairs that included Associated PressDesigner Betsy Burnham recommends having a sheet of glass cut to fit the top of a childs desk, as she did for the bedroom pictured here, in order to protect the furniture from wear and tear. Red, white and blue can be the perfect color palette for a preteens bedroom, according to interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn. Decorating bedrooms for older kids can be a balancing act, designers say See DILEMMA/ Page E12 A preteen girls bedroom designed by Burnham Design, where books, trinkets, trophies and keepsakes are all displayed and stored neatly thanks to built-in bookshelves.

There are many species of palms that can be grown in Florida, but only 12 are native to our subtropical Sunshine State. With an average of 250 sunny days per year, about 50 inches of rainfall, warm, humid summers and mild winters, Florida is an ideal place to grow palms. There are far more exotic palms from Asia, Africa and South America than native palms in Florida gardens. Of the 12 Florida palms, five occur naturally in the tricounty area of Central Florida in cold zones 8-9. Floridas state tree is theSabal palmettoor Sabal Palm, formerly prepared and eaten like cabbage. Cutting out the heart of a Sabal palmetto for palm hearts kills the tree, as it is a monocot having only one growth point. Sabal Palm is naturally resistant to hurricane force winds. It withstands flooding and inundation after summer storms. Once mature, it needs no pruning. Old, dry fronds hanging down from the canopy are favorite roosts and nurseries for bats. Bats in turn consume thousands of pesky insects, like mosquitos, every night. Three other native palms that grow in Marion, Citrus and Levy Counties are dwarf, trunkless species: Sabal etonia, Scrub Palmetto; Sabal minor, Blue-stem Palmetto; and the widespread Serenoa repens, of 2.1 percent in the January-March quarter. That was the biggest plunge in GDP since the first quarter of 2009 during the depths of the Great Recession. But the economy rebounded sharply in the April-June quarter, growing at an annual rate of 4.2 percent. Economists think economic growth will continue at a solid pace in the second half of this year although an initial forecast of 3 percent growth in the July-September quarter may be trimmed following a report Friday that consumer spending fell in July. Economists remain optimistic that Americans will resume shopping in coming months, helped by rising employment and stronger consumer confidence. larger organism underground. This organism is busy decomposing organic matter in your yard, giving you better soil. Actually, mushrooms can be considered a sign of a healthy little ecosystem. Your idea of digging them out is on the right track, but a bit over the top. Rather than digging holes in your lawn, just kick the little buggers over, retrieve them and throw them away. Always think safety first and wash hands after handling (or wear gloves) and check the yard for new shrooms daily before releasing your pups.

Dear John: Here is a photograph of my china cabinet, full of treasures. We used to live in Michigan, now we live in Hernando and enjoy reading your articles in the Citrus County Chronicle. A friend asked me to tell you that they enjoy the column especially because of your straightforward responses to readers questions. Anyway, I am curious about the age and value of my china cabinet. It is made of oak and has removable oak shelves. The glass panels on the sides are beveled but the front door glass is not. I was told a couple of years back it was worth $1,250 what do you think? J.F., Internet Dear J.F.: The china cabinet was made in America, likely in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The time of production is late 19th to early 20th century. They were produced in large quantities by numerous furniture companies. Oak china cabinets were selling for much higher prices in the 1990s; then reproductions entered the scene, and prices dropped. It would be a lucky day to get $1,250 for it due to a lack of interest in the style currently. Dear John: My aunt left me her button collection. There are 200 carded pages of buttons nicely displayed with short comments alongside each button. Then there are shoeboxes full of loose buttons. We knew she collected buttons, but had no idea of the size of her collection. No one in the family wants the collection. What do you suggest we should do with it all? C.E., Internet Dear C.E.: Since no one in the family wants the button collection, it would be best to get in touch with a collecting club. The National Button Society has been around since the 1930s. I suggest you contact them about the collection. The website is www.nationalbuttonsociety.org. Good luck.John Sikorski has been a professional in the antiques business for 30 years.

And rather than being topped by fuzzy, pink heads, like chives, garlic chives flower stalks are capped by small, star-shaped, white flowers clustered together to create a larger star. Garlic chives flowers over a long period in late summer, and are also decorative dried. Those flowers are followed by seeds, and thats when garlic chives show a troublesome side: The plant unabashedly spreads its seeds everywhere. No problem, you may remark: Cilantro and dill also are prolific self-seeders. Yes, they are. And you can easily yank out the excess or errant seedlings of those two herbs. A quick tug removes any problem plant, roots and all. Give garlic chives a similar yank, though, and the strappy leaves either slip through your fingers or snap off. The thick roots which also spread, but nothing like the seedlings remain in the ground to re-sprout. I planted garlic chives a number of years ago and became uneasy when it started to spread around the garden willy nilly. V isions of my garden given over to this plant prompted me to weed out every last trace of it. The plant then showed up a hundred feet from the original planting. At this site, though, against a rock wall and beneath some dense shrubs, its spread is kept in check. And a sweep of garlic chives there looks pretty. If you are bold enough to grow garlic chives, promise to rigorously cut back spent flowers before they mature seeds if you want to contain growth. Beyond that, garlic chives are an easy and pretty plant to grow for the flower, vegetable or herb garden. Like other members of the onion family, it thrives best in full sun and moderately rich soil. One way to start a planting of garlic chives is to beg a division from a friend or neighbors clump. Dig up a section, replant it and keep it moist until established. Seed is another way to begin a planting. As you might guess, the seed sprouts readily in about a week.

Saw Palmetto, armed with saw teeth on the leaf stems. The dwarf sabals have smooth leaf stems and underground trunks so appear as a oneleaf-tall clusters of fronds. Etonia sheds long filaments from the edges of its frond segments, while S. minorrarely has such filaments. Long flower stalks in June and July are below the leaves in etonias,but stand erect above the fronds ofS. minor. The green-colored Saw Palmetto generally has prostrate trunks simple plump stems created as old leaves are shed. Occasionally a Saw Palmetto in a wind-protected location will have an arborescent form with an erect trunk. Palms do not have woody trunks with growth rings like trees. Rather, their stems are full of long, vascular bundles. Silver Saw Palmetto is a recent development, and one of the fastest growing palms Ive seen. Originally occurring on the east Florida coast near Palm Beach, it is now popular in gardens from Key West to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It has been extensively propagated for its lovely silver-blue color and fast growth in nurseries and gardens. Beware: Silver Saw Palmetto can spread 15 feet in diameter in about 15 years. Central Ridge Library in Beverly Hills had many Silvers planted too close to the entry walk in its original landscape design. They had to be removed as they grew too big and too fast. Dunnellon Public Library has recently added slow-growing Sabal etonias to the entry beds flanking its front doors. Volunteer Friends of Dunnellon Library planted green and Silver Saw Palmettos in the native buffer screen along the east property line where the plants will have room to grow to maturity. The fifth native palm of Central Florida is Rhapidophylum histrix, Needle Palm. It is a slow-growing, cluster palm which sprouts baby suckers radiating from the base of the parent. After several years, the whole cluster could be lifted and well-rooted offsets surgically removed with their attached roots to propagate new plants. Leaves are palmate like a hand, with no midrib. There are long, black, needle-like spines clustered around the base and lower stem to deter foraging wildlife seeking to eat the palm seeds. Needle Palm eventually grows a stout trunk. Snowbirds, tourists and homesteading residents love to see tropical palms. The pan-tropical Coconut Palm, Cocos nucifera, can produce up to 60 huge nuts a year. These tasty, useful nuts are the biggest seed in the world. They are used for food, drink, candles, wax, soap, oil, thatched roofs, woven mats, hats and more. Although a true tropical, it can be grown in warmer protected spots as far north as Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic Coast. Inland and once the warming Gulf Stream is pushed offshore by Cape Canaveral, central and north Florida are too cold for Coconut Palm. The exotic Sago cycads King, Queen, Prince and Emperor Sagos have cones like pines, not flowers like palms. To see examples of the five native palms, visit Dunnellon Public Librarys rejuvenated planting beds. As funds become available, the Friends hope to install name and information signs on dozens of native plants in the park-like landscape. With careful forethought as to a plants mature size, any home garden can have a selection of maintenance-free palms.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac also said Thursday the average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, slipped to 3.24 percent from 3.25 percent. At its 52-week low of 4.10 percent, the rate on a 30-year mortgage is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Federal Reserve has been trimming its monthly bond purchases, which are intended to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The purchases are set to end in October. The low rates appear to have boosted U.S. home sales. Also, moderating increases in home prices such as occurred in July should help support sales by making homes more affordable. Real-estate data provider CoreLogic reported Tuesday that home prices rose in July but at a slower rate compared with earlier this year. Greater affordability has helped the housing market recover over the spring and summer after sales and construction fell earlier this year. Sales of existing homes rose for a fourth straight month in July to their strongest pace in nine months. And a measure of signed contracts also increased in July, suggesting that final sales will rise further in coming months. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was 0.5 point, unchanged from last week. John gives his opinion on antique furniture pieces Dear John: We have some family heirlooms and cannot seem to find them listed in any books to determine their value. The rocker, we believe, is more than 100 years old. Can you tell us anything about its history and value? R.H., Internet Dear R.H.: Your demiarm carved rocker was made in America. The time of production is late 19th century. Rockers like this were manufactured in large quantities and often marketed through mail order catalogs like Sears & Roebuck, Montgomery Ward, etc. Potential dollar value is less than $100. Dear John: I hope you can tell me what my pretty vase is worth and how old it might be. All I know is what my grandmother told me. She said it was made in England by a famous company. There is some information on the bottom, which I have put on the back of the photographs. It is almost 12 inches tall. There are no cracks or chips anywhere on the vase. Thank you for helping with this request. R.R., Internet Dear R.R.: You are correct, the porcelain vase is very attractive. It was made by Royal Worcester in England. Royal Worcester is recognized worldwide by collectors as one of the premier porcelain manufactories in England.

shades of orange and turquoise. The result: playful but not immature. Another approach: Red, white and blue has become a modern classic forboys and girls, Flynn says. For a masculine touch, Im a fan of sticking with rich navy and fire-engine red. Girl spaces are an excellent fit for more muted blues such as robins egg or sea foam, and more poppy shades of red such as cherry, he says. What if your kids have their hearts set on colors you think wont work? Respect their input, Burnham says, but adjust the shades as necessary: Its your house, too. If you dont want a school-busyellow wall, what can you live with? Maybe a dijon, or maybe the school-bus yellow is his bedside lamp. If your daughter wants purple, maybe its a gray lavender, she says, or another shade of purple that she wont get sick of in six months. For walls, tweens andteens tend to favor bold patterns, and find wallpaper cool due to its vintage, retro appeal, Flynn says. If wallpaper is too much of a commitment, he adds, consider a graphic treatment on the walls with paint. Stripes are classic and gender-neutral, plus theyre not too difficult to paint. Toys, trophies, books, papers and a whole lot of electronics: Kids have an awful lot of stuff. Burnham suggests choosing a wall that can accommodate 18 inches of depth or 22 inches of depth, and have built-in cabinets and shelves installed. Built-in cabinetry is so very handy in a tween room, agrees Workman. It allows an easy transition to a teenage space because youre not dealing with furniture that the child may no longer like. Custom carpentry can be expensive, but its an investment in your homes value. You can save money by using less expensive wood or MDF (medium-density fiberboard manufactured to look like wood). And dont be afraid to use Ikea as a resource for inexpensive cabinetry that can be given a built-in look by adding crown molding and baseboards, Workman says. For free-standing storage pieces, Flynn suggests hitting a flea market or garage sale: This way, the tween hassomething cool that becomes a huge part of their rooms design, but also is packed with practicality. Some of my go-toitems are Danish modern desks with sleek drawers, rustic metal lockers and three-drawer dressers to use as nightstands. Tweens are still finding themselves, so its tricky to decorate their rooms with one particular style, Flynn says. His preferred style for tweens? Eclectic. Workman agrees that vintage pieces especially those already banged-up and scratched to perfection are perfect for older kids bedrooms. Vintage chairs can be recovered in fresh fabrics, and antique furniture can shine with a new coat of glossy paint. I like to use vintage items, and industrial style for a tween boys bedroom, Workman says. I created a huge lighted sign out of tin letters that spelled out the boys name. There was a definite cool factor to this, and its the type of ornamentation that wont be too baby later on. To tie disparate flea-market finds together, keep the color scheme consistent. And to protect the tops of desks, dressers and tables, Burnham advises having a piece of glass cut to cover them. I am a real believer in creating a kids/tween/teen room that utilizes classic adult fabrics and furnishings, Workman says. I had a client that had no fear using antiques in her childrens rooms, and those children had a deep respect not only for their own space but for the rest of the home as well. She never had to redecorate those rooms, because they went from child to adult with only a change from stuffed animals and toys to guitars and drums.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER7, 2014E5 E12Sunday, September 7, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE CALL Roy Bass TODAY (352) 726-2471 CALL Roy Bass TODAY (352) 726-2471 After Hours (352) 302-6714 All Citrus Realty INC All Citrus Realty INC Email: roybass@tampabay.rr.com www.allcitrusrealty.com 000J8C4 OPEN LAKEFRONT-HERNANDO FL 1/2 acre on the lake.

All major categories of construction showed gains in an encouraging sign that spending on building projects will help boost the economy in the second half of this year. Construction spending rose 1.8 percent in July, the biggest onemonth gain since May 2012, the Commerce Department reported Tuesday. It followed a 0.9 percent decline in June, the largest setback in a year. That decline had been blamed in part on soggy weather which depressed construction activity in many parts of the country. The July rebound pushed total construction to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $981.3 billion, the highest level since December 2008. Spending on housing, non-residential and government projects all increased. Construction spend is now 8.2 percent higher than it was a year ago as it continues to advance following a deep plunge during the Great Recession when builders sharply cut back because of a glut of unsold homes. Housing construction was up 0.7 percent in July to an annual rate of $358.1 billion after two months of declines. Spending on single-family homes rose 0.5 percent and is 9.4 percent higher than a year ago while apartment construction rose 0.2 percent and is 41 percent higher than a year ago. Spending on non-residential projects increased 2.1 percent to an annual rate of $343.6 billion with the strength led by gains in hotel construction, electric power transmission and manufacturing. Spending on government projects rose 3 percent, the largest gain since October. Spending on state and local projects was up 3.4 percent, offsetting a 1.1 percent drop in federal construction spending. A slump in construction in the winter contributed to the economy, as measured by the gross domestic product, shrinking at an annual rate Construction spending up 1.8 percent in July Associated PressAconstructionworker is seen on a 36 floor high rise condominium in Miami.

EMILYHEMPHILL Beatrice Daily SunBEATRICE, Neb. A renovation project is chugging along at the Gage County Museum in Beatrice. The Gage County Historical Society recently received a $10,000 grant from the Martha and Margaret Thomas Foundation to renovate the 1887 caboose outside the museum. The society will add $1,000 to the amount and will pay for anything beyond the $11,000 needed to complete the renovation, the Beatrice Daily Sunreported. Research began about three months ago when local resident Marvin Kenfield started looking at old train cars. Kenfield has traveled Nebraska and other states researching appropriate paint colors, dcor and structure for Chicago, Burlington and Quincy drover cars like the one at the museum. Everything was just mismatched and mashed in here, Kenfield said about the caboose. Gage County Historical Society Director Lesa Arterburn said she and Kenfield determined the original paint color of the cars interior from the back of a box used to hold emergency flares. They are now trying to track down the code for that particular color, called Gold Okra, to see if their paint manufacturer can replicate it. The window trim inside and the exterior of the car will remain red. Every step of the way, between Marv and I, we check and recheck to make sure were doing it right, Arterburn said. The two are using a book titled, The Burlington Waycars by Randall Danniel, Marian Reis and Joseph Douda, to piece the original details of the caboose together. The authors donated a copy of the 768-page book, valued at $125, to the society to use in its research. According to the historical society, the car was built in December 1887 in Galesburg, Ill., and given the identification number CB&Q-205. It was refurbished between 1904 and 1906 and given a new number, 14581. The caboose was updated again in the 1920s and once more in the 1960s. In 1975, railroad enthusiast Mark Heinz noticed the caboose sitting in Lincoln and convinced Burlington Northern to give it to the museum. The Thomas sisters father, Dr. C.W. Thomas, was appointed as the railroad surgeon for C.B. and Q in Wymore in 1927, making the renovation of the caboose a cause dear to the family. Arterburn said the historical society was only going to repaint the caboose and spruce it up a bit, but the grant allowed them to expand the project. (The Thomas Sisters) made it possible for us to do the details, she said. The historical society is focusing on restoring the train car back to its 1906 glory, the same year the passenger station housing the museum was built. At that time, the caboose was used as a way car or drover car for cowboys and horsemen to ride in. They would drive cattle to market with horses and then catch a train back, Kenfield said. The car originally was equipped with six bunks, storage space for bedrolls and saddles, a small table and icebox, a sink and a bathroom. The society is looking for a sink, dated to 1906, to place inside the caboose, as well as two lanterns from the era to hang on the walls. Kenfield said the project should be complete within the next two months, depending on the weather. He is working on restoring the inside of the caboose, while Marvin Camacho-Cook is working on the exterior of the car, adding a rubberized roof and replacing old boards. Once complete, the caboose will serve as a classroom for students to learn about way cars and railroad history. Its an evolving process. The caboose will grow with time, Arterburn said. Note from Leslie: Hello Chroniclereaders, and welcome to the Gardener Gal column. Im excited to be of help to all my new gardening friends and neighbors. While Im committed to answering your questions as accurately as possible, my other goal is make this column laid back and fun to read. Hope you enjoy!Dear Gardener Gal: I have gardened all my life, but since coming to Florida I have had very poor results with both my vegetable garden and with flowers. I know many other people who have the same complaint. What is the trick to gardening here in Florida? Ready To Buy Plastic FlowersDear Ready To Buy Plastic Flowers: First off, please dont go the faux flower route. There is a better way! It is important to understand our 9A planting zone. Here, we gardeners must deal with freezing temps in winter, hot, humid summers and, in many yards, sandy soil. That said, you really can still have a beautiful garden. The trick is to roll with our conditions and stop trying to recreate the gardens you had back home. The most important Florida gardening principle is to choose the right plant for the right place. This will save you lots of time and money. Be warned just because a plant is sold locally doesnt mean it will thrive under our conditions. Do your homework when selecting plants and research the best time to plant them. The University of Florida has great publications allowing you to check a plants requirements and final size. They also have an excellent vegetable gardening guide. Other helpful tricks include raised planting beds, amending the soil, proper garden location, etc. You really wont need to reinvent the wheel. If you were a good gardener back home, you will be one here in Florida as well. Remember, your UF/IFAS Extension Office is always ready to help. Dear Gardener Gal: Im having a problem with mushrooms in my lawn. They are large, white and seem to be growing in circles. My main concern is for my dogs. Im afraid they will eat the mushrooms and be poisoned. My wife thinks we should spray a fungicide. I think digging them out is the answer. Please settle this for us, as full rights to the TV remote for the weekend are hanging on your answer. Thanks in advance. Ray RemoteDear R.R.: Wow. Pressure Not sure if this bet will be completely settled after my answer, but here goes: Neither of you is 100 percent correct, but you are much closer to the correct, and easiest answer. A fungicide will not work well on the mushrooms. The thing to keep in mind is the part of the mushroom appearing in your yard is only the fruit of a muchCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER7, 2014E13 E4Sunday, September 7, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE C ARL M ANUCCI 352-302-9787 S USAN M ULLEN 352-422-2133 000J7M3 TERRA VISTA & BRENTWOOD Rentals Needed (T ERMS 6 MONTHS OR LONGER ) DETACHED VILLA, 3 BED, 2 BATH, 2-CAR Open & bright definitely describes this beautifully updated villa located on a cul-de-sac in Brentwood.

LEEREICH Associated PressIs it a weed or a garden plant? Garlic chives are among those plants paulownia tree, Jerusalem artichoke, mint and anise hyssop are others that can parade under either guise. Garlic chives come from a good enough family, the onion family. There is one definitely weedy member in this family, wild garlic, but many other kin are valuable garden plants. Star-of-Persia, giant onion and lily leek are among those that light up flower gardens with starbursts of blossoms. And the wide, purple, mottled leaves of Turkestan onion add as much to a flower garden as the flowers themselves do, clustered together like fuzzy tennis balls above the leaves. Onions of many kinds, leeks, shallots, garlic and chives all provide delectable fare. As its name indicates, the flavor of garlic chives is more robust than that of chives. In China, garlic chives leaves that are blanched from sunlight for a couple of weeks before harvest beneath an overturned flowerpot are a delicacy over fried noodles. Besides good flavor, theres no question as to garlic chives beauty. The thin leaves rise from the ground in clumps like those of chives, but garlic chives leaves are flattened Shemet scores again for EXITEXIT Realty Leaders would like to congratulate Pam Shemet for being No. 1 agent in sales for the month of August, with five closed deals.
