Tuesday, Marc Mediate, now 46, was back in Citrus County court in an attempt to have his sentence reduced. In April 1986, Mediate, 17, of Crystal River, and Edward J. Lindsay, then 24, of Inglis, were arrested and charged with the abduction and rape of an 18-year-old Citrus County woman.Chronicleaccounts reported the woman was acting as a Good Samaritan on Easter night when she stopped her truck for the two men near their disabled car on County Road 488. The woman was forced at gunpoint into her vehicle and the men took turns driving the truck while the other sexually assaulted her in the covered truck bed. Four hours later she was left tied and blindfolded at a cemetery in Taylor County. But before the men left, one of them fired a gun off near her head, warning her of her fate if she told authorities. The woman got loose and flagged down a motorist for help. Mediate and Lindsay were arrested the following day.

Council members who also serve as the CRA board agreed on the next stages of the project after Carol Kimbrough with the Crystal River Area Council presented a letter signed by property owners consenting for the project. I want to say wow, Vice Mayor Ken Brown said about the area councils handling of the Riverwalk informationgathering and property-owner acceptance. The CRA re-introduced the Riverwalk vision in 2008 as a way of connecting the Kings Bay waterfront to the rest of downtown. The project, although not definite in design, is anticipated to involve the construction of a walkway from a new parking lot off Northwest First Avenue to the seawalls of Charlies Fish House, Dockside Ice Cream, Bayview Apartments, Crackers Bar and Grill and ending at the Best Western Hotel. While nothing is finalized in regards to the actual design of the Riverwalk, some council members envisioned a project thats more than an extension of the seawall. We are not looking for cheap and quick, Councilwoman Paula Wheeler said. Were looking for quality and sustainability.

Robert Lee Murray, 32, was arrested Monday morning after the boat he allegedly stole in Fort Meyers broke down on its way to Petes Pier in Crystal River, according to the arrest affidavit. The Lakeland man was charged with the boat theft, along with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia after the Citrus County Sheriffs Office (CCSO) assisted the Coast Guard in validating and eventually impounding the stolen vessel. Murray and a passenger were on their way to Petes Pier in Crystal River, reportedly to recover $7 million that was left to the defendant from his deceased grandparents. The other individual on the boat was a mechanic provided by a friend of Murray after the vessel broke down on a previous voyage to Crystal River. A CCSO deputy was notified by Coast Guard officials that the boat they were towing was stolen from an owner in Fort Myers.

Man charged with sexual battery of 5-year-old girl BUSTERTHOMPSON Staff writerA 19-year-old Citrus County man was arrested Monday on charges of sexually battering a 5-year-old girl. William Edward Bubb, of Hernando, is accused of having intercourse with the child as her mother was sleeping on a couch in the same Inverness residence. A family member of the victim notified authorities after the child advised of inappropriate contact by Bubb, his arrest affidavit states. According to an interview conducted at Jessies Place Child Advocacy Center on Monday, the apparent victim disclosed to a child protection team that while her mom was sleeping on the couch of their home, the defendant had sexual contact with her in a separate room. A witness who lives at the residence also shared with an investigator that Bubb looked nervous and the victim appeared scared when she returned to the house on Saturday, according to the report. After Bubb left the house, the witness reportedly was told of the alleged sexual battery when she questioned the child. According to the witness statement to the investigator, the 5-year-old told her Bubb covered her mouth to prevent her from waking her mother. On Monday afternoon, a deputy arrested Bubb in Inverness and transported him to the Citrus County Detention Facility. During an interview with Bubb, he admitted to the allegations, was apologetic and said he has a drug problem. Bubb was charged with the felony offense of sexual battery against a person younger than age 12. No bond was set due to the seriousness of the charges. William Bubb CMHS celebrates volunteers 100th birthdayNANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS As Glen Bortell hugged the hundreds of people who packed Citrus Memorial Health System Share Club Auditorium to honor him on his 100th birthday Tuesday, his smile never left his face. Bortell, a hospital volunteer since he was a spry 89-year-old, has logged more than 6,000 hours transporting patients to and from diagnostic imaging. He was named Volunteer of the Year in 2012. You watch the news and this is bad and that is bad, but then you come to work and see Glen and you smile because hes always smiling, said Penny Zaphel, CMHS manager of volunteers and community services and organizer of the birthday event. We have a saying around here: We want to be Glen when we grow up. In Bortells honor, an American flag flew over the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday. Also, Gov. Rick Scott sent greetings and U.S. Rep. Richard Nugent recognized Bortell on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives Tuesday. He is a treasure for us and for our patients, said Sandy Phillips, president of the hospital volunteers. In 1914, Woodrow Wilson was president. Minimum wage at Ford Motor Company was $5 a day. Roast beef cost less than 20 cents a pound at the neighborhood butcher and people could buy eight rolls of toilet paper or seven bars of soap for a quarter. It was the year Superman George Reeves, Lone Ranger Clayton Moore, boxer Joe Louis, exercise guru Jack LaLanne and Yankee great Joe DiMaggio were born and Glen Bortell. Born and raised in Grinnell, Iowa, he and his late wife, Mary, came to Florida in 1985 and later to Inverness after they evacuated their mobile home in South Florida during Hurricane Andrew. They liked Citrus County and decided to stay. I spent two-thirds of my working years in the food business as a partner in 33 grocery stores in rural Iowa, he told the Chroniclein 2010. Then, I owned and operated a boys and girls summer ranch camp the last third. In between, in the 1970s, he was elected to the Iowa Senate and later served two terms in the state Legislature. Back then, state politics was more or less made up of farmers and regular people, he said. You felt it was your duty to serve if called on. Ronald Reagan was one of his favorite presidents they were friends in Iowa when Reagan was a sports announcer in Des Moines. Bortell bought his first car, a 1918 Model T Ford, for $10 when he was in high school. At that time you didnt need a drivers license. He started working at age 8 delivering laundry in a coaster wagon for a neighbor, had a paper route and delivered groceries with a wagon drawn by mules on Saturdays. He believes in hard work and keeping busy. As for living to be 100, Bortell said he stays youthful by always working with younger people, and always smiling.

BUSTERTHOMPSON Staff writerCITRUS SPRINGS All Citrus Springs Middle School students were accounted for after they were evacuated Tuesday morning when smoke was reportedly seen coming from air vents. Responding Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputies and Fire Rescue personnel received notice from school officials that all students and faculty members were evacuated after smoke from a recently constructed air handler was seen at approximately 8:30 a.m. The school did an awesome job at accountability, battalion chief Tom Bosley said about the schools procedures. The smoke ceased after power was shut off to the building and air conditioning units. The school was later searched for any residual gases and cleared the building of smoke, and students were allowed to re-enter after 40 minutes. According to the incident report, the fire was the result of paperwork being left too close to the air conditioner after it was constructed. Citrus Springs Middle School was advised by Fire Rescue to check all air units before resuming normal use. Citrus County Sheriffs Office Fire Rescue personnel responded to Citrus Springs Middle School on Tuesday morning in response to smoke coming from air vent. Special to the Chronicle Middle school evacuated after smoke sighted Citrus sheriffs office charges man accused of photographing child nude BUSTERTHOMPSON Staff writerCitrus County sheriffs deputies arrested Thomas Prater, 59, on Monday after investigating the Beverly Hills resident for allegedly taking nude photographs of a 12-year-old girl. According to Praters arrest affidavit, the child claimed to investigators from Child Protective Services that she was told by Prater multiple times to undress so he could take photographs of her. One incident allegedly occurred on Aug. 30 at a swimming pool at the childs residence, and a second incident is alleged to have occurred last Wednesday in the girls bedroom. According to the child, these were not the first incidents involving her and the defendant. After his arrest on Monday, Prater admitted to investigators that he did take photos of the 12-year-old at the pool and in her room in exchange for allowing her to use her computer and listen to music. Prater was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and child abuse with the infliction of physical and mental injury. No bond was set because the incident was domestic related. Thomas Prater State BRIEF State accuses sheriff of allowing prisoner furloughsTALLAHASSEE A state attorney said a sheriff in Gadsden County temporarily released dozens of prisoners including violent felons so they could visit family or have private encounters with women. State Attorney Willie Meggs petitioned a judge Tuesday to find Sheriff Morris Young in contempt of court for allowing furloughs without permission from a court. Meggs listed more than 100 examples in what he said wasnt a complete list. Young angrily denied any wrongdoing and said Meggs is trying to sabotage him because hes black. From wire reports

Lindsay took a plea agreement from the state and was sentenced to 14 years. Due to pretrial publicity, Mediates trial was moved to Lake County and he was convicted of kidnapping and four counts of sexual battery. On Oct. 14 of that year, Judge John Thurman imposed the life sentence, plus four 30-year terms, exceeding the state attorneys request for a sentence of 22 to 27 years. The judge cited the seriousness of the offenses and that Mediate was already under community control (house arrest) when the crimes were committed. Since Mediate was initially sentenced, there have been some changes in terms of sentencing minors to life in prison without the possibility of parole. And Mediate has used this change and other case law in appealing his sentence as illegal. In March his appeal was denied by the Fifth District Court of Appeal. On Tuesday he was represented by attorney James Dozier, who said he should be resentenced to nothing more than 40 years. However, since Dozier was new to the case and Mediate has acquired paralegal training in prison, he detailed his own motion, which he had written to correct an illegal sentence. Assistant State Attorney Rich Buxman cited the appellate court ruling and said the case has already been decided. We knew this sentence is not illegal, Buxman said. The defendants motion should be denied. Mediate refuted the states argument citing other cases. I am going to rely on the Fifth District Court of Appeal, said Judge Richard Howard. You have been denied relief before, and it has been reviewed by our appellate courts. He said the court has to follow the ruling on the case in the Fifth District and denied the motion on all grounds. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@ chronicleonline.com. America (HCA) appears to be coming to an end. The Citrus County Commission on Tuesday OKd proceeding with a plan to seek the state attorney generals opinion about the transaction. The commission also accepted the plan as written. In a 4-1 vote, commissioners accepted a plan presented by the hospital board attorney Bill Grant that would also dissolve the hospital foundation and replace it with a 12-person charitable trust. Commissioner Rebecca Bays voted against the measure. Bays expressed concern over what she called vague language about what percentage of the principal of hospital revenue can be protected from being spent in the future and making sure indigent health care services are guaranteed. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi will be asked: Can the CCHB use net proceeds of the transaction for a charitable trust and may HCA demolish useless or obsolete structures without violating state statute? (The agreement allows HCA to demolish structures not on the hospital grounds, such as off-site clinics.) Bondis opinion could be the final hurdle before the deal is closed Oct. 31. Grant said Bondis opinion is being sought to make sure the lease falls within the laws governing public hospitals. He said even though the AGs opinion is not binding, it lends assurance. The tentative terms of the lease-deal with HCA were agreed to at a special meeting Sept. 12, 2013, and includes: A 50-year lease worth $127 million. The hospital, Citrus Memorial Health System, would keep its name, but HCA could be added to it, according to Grant. HCA agrees to operate an acutecare hospital for at least 15 years. HCA will provide $45 million in capital improvements during the first five years of the lease. That does not mean, however, the money will be spent at the current hospital location. HCA could build another facility, so long as it is part of the Citrus Memorial Health System. It is a very good deal for what they are offering, Grant told commissioners. He asked for approval, saying the hospital is not financially sound and that the deal guarantees several financial benefits to the county, including an immediate infusion of more than $3 million in taxes that will be paid by HCA. He also acknowledged that legal fees associated with the long-running hospital saga, which began in 2009, have been about $13 million on both sides of the divide. Bays wanted to know if an operation like The Centers will have a seat on the new charitable trust board. She added she would like to nominate The Centers for a seat on the board because of all the important work the facility does with the indigent, drug addicts and the mentally ill. Commissioner Joe Meek said he also would like to see business represented on the new board and said he supported the plan because if the commission fails to back the plan it would be diluting the pot of money that is expected to flow into the new charitable trust. Members of the new charitable trust board will be drawn from stakeholders throughout the county including the cities of Crystal River and Inverness.

His last weeks were spent at home. This was made possible through the exceptional care provided by Citrus County Hospice. There, Paul was surrounded by his loving wife of 61 years, Dorothy, and his three daughters, Theresa (Welch) ONeil, Diane (Welch) McDonald and Laura (Welch) Wiemers, along with their spouses. In addition, Paul is survived by five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. His life began on June 22, 1929, in Detroit Michigan when he was born to Paul E. Welch Sr. and Anne Elizabeth Welch. Paul lived most of his life in Chicago, Illinois, leaving for just two years to serve his country with the U.S. Army in Japan. When he returned to Chicago in 1948, he enrolled at George Williams College to study physical education. While attending college, Paul met for the second time, a pretty 19 year old lady, Dorothy Cassidy, who he would marry one year later on July 10, 1953. Together they raised three children while working hard and having fun whenever the opportunities arose. The prospect of daily golf and great times brought the Welches to Beverly Hills, in 1995 for retirement. Together Paul and Dorothy lived a very active social life in their community, always involved in anything having to do with good friends and fun. Paul also had a serious side to him. He was civic minded and served his community, first, as a member of the Prince of Peace Catholic School Board for many years and later as a twice elected member of the Laurel Ridge Association Board. His lifelong hobbies were listening to good music, specifically opera, baseball and golf. As a boy he loved to play baseball. Pauls greatest desire was to be a major league pitcher when he grew up, preferably with his beloved Chicago White Sox. He lived and breathed baseball until he had an unfortunate sports accident that shut him out of the game and a professional baseball career. Paul never played much after that, but he sure loved to watch the game live, recorded or simply listen to it on the radio! Every morning he read all the baseball stats from the day before, examining the Sports Section first before reading the rest of the morning newspaper. Memorial Mass of remembrance for Paul will be held at 11a.m. Saturday, Sept. 13, 2014, at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church, 1401 W. Country Club Blvd., Citrus Springs. A luncheon will follow Mass at the church hall. Inurnment will be 11 a.m. Monday, Sept. 15, 2014, at Florida National Cemetery, 6502 S.W. 102nd Ave., Bushnell, FL. 33513. The family asks that in lieu of flowers and in Paul Welchs memory, donations be made to Citrus County Hospice, P.O. Box 641270, Beverly Hills, FL 34464, so that families can continue to receive the exceptional support and love that the Welch family received during their beloved husband and fathers final days.

approval of the six businesses affected by future Riverwalk, the Crystal River Area Council reemphasized the solutions for revising new stormwater treatment master plans and having adequate parking concerns that will be discussed in the future. Much of this agreement from the city and business owners along the bay comes from the citys hiring of Real Estate Research Analysis Inc. in 2013. The analysts provided the city and business owners with a Waterfront District Master Concept Plan, which lays out incentive-based polices and the sharing of construction costs between the city and the private businesses. City officials will be discussing the construction requirements stipulated by the affected property owners during the CRA meeting on Monday, Sept. 22, and will be motioning to schedule possible workshops to review the project at a later date. Council members also requested that a timeline be organized by the city and the CRA in order to guarantee progression for a project thats been on Crystal Rivers mind for more than 20 years. The city council also: Approved the purchase of two sewage pumps to replace broken pumps at lift station No. 38, at a cost of $13,174. Approved purchase of new playground equipment at Copeland Park, at a cost of $10,850.

After boarding a Florida Fish and Wildlife boat, the responding deputy intercepted Murrays boat being towed by Towboat U.S. at Shell Island. The stolen boat was then escorted to Petes Pier where Murray was reportedly arrested on an active Hillsborough County warrant. During an interview with the deputy, Murray stated that he was informed by his attorney handling his probate case that the boat was left to him by his deceased grandparents. According to the friend of Murray, who was also interviewed by CCSO investigators, he did not believe that the probate attorney even existed, but made it clear that he only knew that Murray owned the boat by his own claims and no legal documentation. A CCSO K-9 unit was called in due to the Coast Guard reporting that there might be drugs onboard. After a search of the vessel, the CCSO reportedly seized a digital weigh scale, three spoons and seven clear bags with heroin residue inside. Bond was set at $8,000.

Now, theyre trying to find someone to adopt the donkey theyve named Moses. The donkey was dropped off at the sheriffs office about three weeks ago after the person who found him said he became too expensive to feed. Since then, hes been living in a barn near the sheriffs headquarters. Deputy Tammy Henderson named him and has been feeding him every day. She told the Northwest Florida Daily News that Moses loves peppermints. Officials placed a legal ad, but no one claimed the donkey. And no one bought him at the auction. Spokeswoman Catherine Rodriguez said theyre just hoping to find someone to give Moses a nice home.Man arrested for pointing laser at aircraftTAMPA Air traffic controllers at Tampa International Airport were forced to change the landing and departure routes of commercial jet liners after police said a man on the ground aimed a laser lighting device at four commercial airplanes and a Tampa police helicopter.

new schools, buses, construction and renovation projects, as well as maintenance and repair expenses. District officials said the budget is balanced, thanks to a contract with a private company to operate the Renaissance Center, as well as a drop in enrollment. The savings is about $600,000 by contracting the Renaissance Centers operations to Marion County-based Silver Mentoring Institute, or SRMI. Cuts were also made with open positions only, which saved the district approximately $1 million.

Special to the ChronicleAccording to statistics released by the Department of Elder Affairs in 2013, Citrus County has the third-largest percentage of population over the age of 60 in the state of Florida a total of 41.4 percent. Experts at the Citrus Countys Division of Support Services and the Key Training Center understand that as life expectancy in this community continues to rise and this number increases, so will the need for specialized care and services that accompany each new candle added to the cake. Facing this demographic certainty and sharing the overall commitment for the well being and quality of life at all ages spurred both agencies to expand their resources. Pat Coles, director of Citrus Countys Support Services Division, said the county was recently awarded funding through Elder Options Local Services Program, which provides funding to expand long-term care alternatives enabling elders to maintain acceptable quality of life in their own homes and avoid or delay nursing home care. One of those services is adult day care. Adult day care centers are designed for older adults who can no longer manage independently, allowing them to socialize with others while still receiving needed care services. At the same time, these facilities can offer family and caregivers much-needed respite while knowing their loved one is in good hands. We had not applied for this particular funding before because there had not been a licensed adult day care agency in Citrus County that met the criteria until the Key Training Center opened its Key Care Club, Coles said. The Key Care Club opened its doors to the community in 2013, offering for the first time Key Center facilities, personnel, programs and expertise to individuals other than its own clients. It offers a structured and supervised setting in a pleasant and home-like environment with daily activities designed to promote independence and self esteem. Trained personnel offer assistance with personal care, provide hot meals and nutritious snacks, supervise self-administered medications and plan daily therapeutic activities. We are thrilled at the opportunity of making the Key Care Club available and affordable for more of those in our community needing this service, said Theresa Flick, Key Training Center director of program and services. We know from experience how successful this program is; now we can share it with others. The Local Services Program funding will be available to men and women who can benefit from the services and programs at the Key Care Club and meet the grant requirements. They must be over the age of 60 and not currently enrolled in any Medicaid longterm care program. Contact the Citrus County Senior Care Services at 352-527-5930 for more information.

Apple reveals larger iPhones and smartwatchCUPERTINO, Calif. For the first time in years, Apples iPhones werent the star of the show. Apple unveiled a smartwatch on Tuesday, a wearable device that marks the companys first major entry in a new product category since the iPads debut in 2010. The move is significant because of recent questions about whether Apple still has a knack for innovating following the 2011 death of co-founder Steve Jobs. The devices introduction upstaged the companys two new, larger iPhones, which wont just have bigger screens; theyll have a new, horizontal viewing mode to take advantage of the larger display. The iPhone 6 will have a screen measuring 4.7 inches, while the iPhone 6 Plus will be 5.5 inches. In both cases, app developers will be able to design apps that can be viewed differently when the phone is held horizontally. Apple also introduced a system for using the phone to make credit card payments at retail stores.Letting your car find a spot and park itselfDETROIT With a thumb swipe on a smartphone, your car one day will be able to drive into a parking deck, find an open spot and back into a space all by itself. Technology being honed by French auto parts maker Valeo uses a dozen ultrasonic sound-wave sensors, 360-degree cameras and a laser scanner to safely park within a few centimeters of other vehicles. Then, when youre done with dinner or a business meeting, the car will return to you after another swipe of the thumb. The potential benefits are plenty. More orderly parking means less congestion. Drivers are spared the time and frustration of the hunt for a spot. Parking lots can squeeze more vehicles into limited space.Economic forecast in much of world: Dim to gloomyWASHINGTON The Great Recession officially ended more than five years ago. Yet the feeling of many people around the world can be summarized in one word: Gloom. In a survey of 48,643 people in 44 countries out Tuesday, the Pew Research Center found that 60 percent say their own countrys economy is performing poorly. Dissatisfaction runs highest in the worlds most advanced economies, where 64 percent say conditions are bad. In the United States, 58 percent give the American economy poor marks. The deepest despair was recorded in countries hit hardest by the European debt crisis: 97 percent of Greeks, 96 percent of Italians and 93 percent of Spaniards said their economies were performing poorly. Unemployment rates are extraordinarily high in all three: 27 percent in Greece, 13 percent in Italy, 25 percent in Spain.US job openings stay near 13-year high; hiring upWASHINGTON The number of U.S. job openings remained near the highest level in 13 years in July, and companies also stepped up hiring that month to the fastest pace in nearly seven years, two signs the job market is slowly healing. The tally of available jobs ticked down 2,000 to 4.673 million in July, from 4.675 million in June, the Labor Department said Tuesday. Junes figure was the highest since February 2001. The drop was led by a decline in government job postings. Businesses actually advertised slightly more jobs. Total hiring, meanwhile, jumped 81,000 to 4.87 million, the highest level since December 2007, when the Great Recession began. That indicates companies are more likely to fill their open jobs. Still, that is below the prerecession average of just over 5 million hires a month.Trump casinos file Chapter 11; seek concessionsATLANTIC CITY, N.J. Trump Entertainment Resorts filed for bankruptcy Tuesday and threatened to shut down the Taj Mahal Casino Resort, which would make it the fifth Atlantic City casino to close this year. The company owns Trump Plaza, which is closing in a week, and the Taj Mahal, which has been experiencing cash-flow problems and had been trying to stave off a default with its lenders. The company said the Taj Mahal could close Nov. 13 if it doesnt win salary concessions from union workers. Its the fourth such filing for the struggling casino company or its corporate predecessors.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER10, 2014 A9 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,800 1,850 1,900 1,950 2,000 2,050 MS AMJJA 1,960 2,000 2,040 S&P 500Close: 1,988.44 Change: -13.10 (-0.7%) 10 DAYS 16,000 16,400 16,800 17,200 MS AMJJA 16,960 17,080 17,200 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 17,013.87 Change: -97.55 (-0.6%) 10 DAYSAdvanced713 Declined2418 New Highs66 New Lows37 Vol. (in mil.)2,803 Pvs. Volume2,730 1,913 1,633 635 2046 53 56 NYSE NASD DOW 17111.5516993.2917013.87-97.55-0.57%+2.64% DOW Trans.8569.358509.298514.67-59.52-0.69%+15.05% DOW Util.563.33556.47557.37-6.50-1.15%+13.62% NYSE Comp.10994.1510923.0010945.61-61.78-0.56%+5.24% NASDAQ4599.034544.444552.29-40.00-0.87%+9.00% S&P5002001.011984.611988.44-13.10-0.65%+7.58% S&P4001438.211426.361427.44-11.70-0.81%+6.32% Wilshire 500021221.9621038.2021075.32-146.64-0.69%+6.95% Russell 20001171.241157.851158.50-13.81-1.18%-0.44% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Interestrates 000J9T7 $ 9 98 $ 13 49 Associated PressNEW YORK Stocks fell for a second straight day Tuesday as investors were left unimpressed by Apples latest batch of product announcements. Negative news out of Home Depot and McDonalds also weighed on the market. The Dow lost 97.55 points, or 0.6 percent, to 17,013.87, its biggest one-day drop in a month. The Standard & Poors 500 index lost 13.10 points, or 0.7 percent, to 1,988.44 and the Nasdaq composite lost 40 points, or 0.9 percent, to 4,552.29. Investors had little in the way of economic data to digest, so trading was largely dominated by the news out of Apple. The California-based tech titan announced an updated version of its iPhone, a smartwatch as well as payment system to compete with traditional debit and credit cards. The iPhone 6 and its various iterations were well received by investors, as was the payment system, which would allow a shopper to purchase a product simply by holding his or her iPhone close to a sensor. Apple had been up as much as 4 percent after the products were unveiled. The smartwatch left some investors scratching their heads, however, and the Apple rally quickly faded. The watch doesnt come out until next year, costs $350, and would require an iPhone near it to work. It was hardly the new product category that investors had hoped it might be. I dont know if theyre swimming up the right river with this watch, said Dan Morgan, a senior portfolio manager at Synovus Trust Company, who has been a long-time investor in Apple shares. It looks like an addon product, not something that has the potential to be a phenomenon. At the end of the day, Apple fell 37 cents, or 0.4 percent, to $97.99. Apple is often volatile on days it announces products. Yet while the decline in Apples own stock was modest, its product news had ripple effects in various parts of the market. GPS device maker Garmin and watch company Fossil fell 3.5 percent and 2 percent, respectively. Both companies are looking to claim a stake in smartwatch industry, with Garmin heavily invested in watches used by athletes to track their performance. Fossil recently announced a partnership with Intel to develop smartwatches. Investors saw Apples payment system as a direct competitor to eBays PayPal division, causing eBay to fall sharply in afternoon trading. EBay closed down $1.50, or 3 percent, to $52.73.

OPINION Page A10WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2014 Road paving plan contains potholesThe November election is just around the corner and the decision over how to pay for road repaving and repairs must be made. Several things have happened lately that lead me to wonder if the county government is capable of doing this job efficiently, or effectively. A lease was discovered that had not been collected in 20 years. An employee was found to be embezzling money and had apparently been doing so for some time. No one seems to be responsible for minding the store. Our commissioners came up with a plan for a MSBU for additional fire protection equipment and personnel, but overlooked the contract the county had with Inverness for fire protection. Now it seems they can legally get out of being included in the MSBU. Slight oversight? You bet! I see from the Chronicle that the county has presented the new 1cent sales tax proposal to Inverness, so we shouldnt have that happen again. That same article stated that all 1,678 centerline miles of county-maintained and owned local residential paved roads will be resurfaced. What if the county doesnt own or maintain the road you live on today? What about the city streets in Crystal River and Inverness that have been maintained by those cities? There are also massive developments in the county that are sparsely built out, at best, and the streets have slowly deteriorated (see Citrus Springs). What is to happen to those streets? The owners of those empty lots dont even live here to pay sales taxes and the property taxes on the empty lots are near zip, if paid at all. If you live on a paved street that is not owned by the county, do you have to pay the new sales tax and then put together a MSBU to repave your street when its needed? Has anyone really given this any thought? Or, are we simply stumbling into another fiasco like the MSBU for fire protection? What happens on the 21st year, do we need to pass another 1-cent sales tax? The sales tax our county commissioners have proposed is projected to produce $11.6 million per year. The current gasoline tax produces $7.4 million now and only $1 million of that would be used for local road resurfacing. OK, so where does the remainder of the $7.4 million go? Please dont tell me, sidewalks to nowhere or bicycle paths. If you do the math, the 10 miles to be done next year would cost $100,000 per mile. However, the remaining 1,678 miles done over 20 years would cost $150,000 per mile to consume the tax revenue. Would the cost go up, sure, but 50 percent? Can you project the cost of paving over the next 20 years with any reasonable accuracy? Is there a paving plan for the next year, two years, five years, 10 years? If not, it will be a miracle if this money is spent on paving. Do we really need to pass this for 20 years? How about two and see how well its working? Where has the $7 million-plus gasoline tax gone for the last five years? How long has it been falling short of what is needed? Will the gasoline tax continue, and if so, where will it be spent? There just seem to be too many questions that may not have been addressed with this plan. The alternative, MSBUs for paving is even less attractive. With some thought and planning, the sales tax alternate may still be the most palatable.R.M. Sprott Crystal River WASHINGTONWestern leaders are gathering in Wales to consolidate NATO options as Russian forces secure their positions in Eastern Ukraine. Its a showdown of sorts, and Russian President Putin has the upper hand. Hes offering a ceasefire in Ukraine even as he says Russia is not a party to the conflict, one of the many games he plays as he taunts the West. Putin is clearly in charge of the ground game in Ukraine despite his denials. And now that he has effectively secured the two Eastern-most provinces of Luhansk and Donetsk, hes ready to negotiate. What terms will he demand? One, he wants autonomy for those two Eastern provinces where Russian speakers predominate, and where a sizeable portion of the population feels an affinity for the Russian Motherland. A greater measure of independence for Luhansk and Donetsk can be achieved with a rough federation, but Putin may have more in mind. He may intend to annex the provinces. The larger and more problematic demand Putin is likely to put on the table is a prohibition against Ukraine joining NATO and/or the European Union or signing trade pacts with the EU. He wants Ukraine to be included in his Collective Security Treaty Organization along with a half dozen other former Soviet Republics. On the face of it, that could be a non-starter for Ukraine, whose newly elected president, Petro Poroshenko, is scheduled to visit the White House and meet with President Obama on Sept. 18. Clearly, Poroshenko wants to cast his countrys lot with the West, but how much maneuvering room does he have? In a recent telephone conversation with a European Union leader, Putin boasted that his forces could take Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, in two weeks if he chose to do so. Theres no disputing the fact that the Russian Army is far superior to any forces Ukraine can muster, but Poroshenko may be betting that Putin really doesnt want all of Ukraine. After all, the country is an economic basket case and would be a drain on Russias resources. What Putin cannot tolerate is another country on Russias border tilting to the West, which is what he faces with the Baltic countries of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. Its worth remembering what set off this crisis. A series of protests in Ukraines dubbed Euromaidan called for the ouster of the pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych. Yanukovych fled to Russia, and Ukraine tilted to the West, seeking a trade pact with the European Union. Putin couldnt stand it, and threatened to cut off energy supplies to Ukraine and Europe. What followed was the Russian annexation of Ukraines Crimea region and the attempted secession of Donetsk and Luhansk. But the rebellion faltered, and Russian troops and equipment poured in to tip the balance in the rebels favor. Poroshenko has been pleading for help, but the U.S. and NATO are not going to engage Russia in a land war over Ukraine, and Putin knows it. Instead, the West has imposed a series of sanctions on Russia, so far to no avail. Putin is in the stronger position. First, the Ukrainian Army is no match for the Russian Army. Second, he has control over the natural gas that flows through pipelines in Ukraine that fuel Ukraine and much of Europe. Hes not likely to just shut it all off; after all he needs the revenue, but he can play off-and-on games with the supply. He can cut off Ukraine for a couple weeks, or even a couple days, and sit back and watch the havoc. He can yank around European leaders to his hearts delight. With winter approaching, the sheer uncertainty of knowing whether or not Russia will deliver the power they need creates hardship. In this scenario, Russian gas and the Russian Army are likely to trump Western sanctions. Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift author the Washington MerryGo-Round column, founded in 1932 by Drew Pearson.

The Coupons for Classrooms fundraiser is a nationally recognized 32-page, bound coupon book with nearly 400 coupons and close to $2,000 in local and national savings. The Citrus County Education Foundation and Citrus County School District believes this single fundraiser will raise more money and not be as labor intensive. Beginning Sept. 12, the books will be available in all district schools and in various businesses. The Marion County school district has been using the coupon book for three years and seen phenomenal success. The booklet costs $20 and the first coupon offered gives the purchaser $20 off their grocery bill, which essentially pays off the initial investment. Parents whove been bombarded by numerous fundraisers throughout the year can attest to the time and money spent on small fundraising efforts with minimal returns. Focusing the effort on one fundraising project with a more effective reach and better return makes sense and is worth trying out. Soon parents will see the books coming home with their students. For this to be successful, the schools will have to be very effective on the marketing end as it is a one-shot deal. Innovative ideas often lead to improvement; it is good to see the school district trying something different. Books will be going home with students on Sept. 12 through Oct. 3.

LETTERto the Editor Change is comingIt was a pleasure to see Mr. Carnahan and, hopefully in November, Mr. Kitchen will join Mr. Adams for the people, not tax and spend foolishly, wasting our road resurfacing dollars as the previous commissioners have done. Millions of dollars which could have gone for road repairs were wasted on pet projects, consultants and lawyers. We need a change for the people. Adams out for himself onlyI think it is time for Scott Adams to get out. He is feeling his oats by threatening people and there are many of us who dont like a dictator. For those of you who think he is on the side of the people, you are dead wrong. He is on his own agenda ... Wake up, Citrus County. THE CHRONICLEinvites you to call Sound Off with your opinions about local or statewide subjects. You do not need to leave your name, and have less than a minute to record. COMMENTSwill be edited for length, libel, personal or political attacks and good taste. Editors will cut libelous material. OPINIONS expressed are purely those of the callers. SOUND OFFCALL563-0579 Not good for CitrusThis is a two-part comment: first in todays Chronicle, Sunday, Aug. 31, Gerry Mulligan wrote a great column about Scott Adams. That was spot on. Good job, Gerry. Also, today, there is a comment by Mr. Carnahan about Jimmie T. Smith being out of his mind. My concern is Mr. Carnahan and Scott Adams appear to be just about the same caliber. This is not good for Citrus County at all.Disagree with last lineRegarding Mr. Mulligans column, Out the Window, on Sunday (Aug. 31): I have to disagree with the next-to-the-last paragraph of that article, Citrus County voters are being manipulated by a cynical group of political hacks. That is not true. Did it not occur to you, Mr. Mulligan, that the citizens of Citrus County can think, are intelligent and we know when were being sold a bill of goods? But we also know when we want a change and thats why the vote came out the way it did. The citizens want to be represented by people who are willing to listen and to act on what the citizens of the county want, rather than one or two individuals for their own betterment.Just let it goIt is getting so boring reading about Gerry Mulligans personal attacks on Scott Adams. Good Lord, let the man go. Just let it go. CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE OtherVOICES Hot Corner: GERRYS COLUMN
New name might get more supportYour Sunday editorial on the barge canal was so on the mark that it would be useful for our civic and policy organizations, as well as county staff, to read and discuss. The editorial correctly acknowledges the limitations and the potential of the canal. A new name reflecting scaled-back uses might help achieve community support. Linda Myers Pine RidgeTerm limits make senseAmericas infrastructure is crumbling, our borders are being overrun, veterans are not being taken care of, the middle class is being destroyed by jobs being sent overseas and corporations are using the practice of inversion as a loophole to avoid paying their taxes. With so many serious problems facing us, it is hard to determine which one should receive top priority. Republicans in Congress, however, have decided that their top priority is, Hey, lets sue the president for overstepping his authority. Does this mean the American people can sue Congress for not doing their job? I love the way politicians will start sentences with What the American people expect or What the Founding Fathers intended, and they proceed to do just the opposite. What the American people expect is a Congress that will put aside the partisan politics and work together for the good of the country. Is it any wonder that Congress now enjoys a favorable rating of less than 10 percent? If politicians really want to follow what the Founding Fathers wanted, they would resign after one or two terms. Our Founding Fathers stated that they felt any elected office should not be a career. It was a privilege to be elected to serve the people and should not be a lifelong job with incredible benefits. If we were to elect new people into office after one or two terms, it would insure that the people sent to D.C. would be one of us and know about the problems we face. They would not immediately spend most of their time working on their re-election campaigns they would work for us. Im not saying all politicians are corrupt. I am saying that most politicians, because they are lifers, have become so far removed from the average American that we can no longer expect them to relate to the day-to-day problems we face. Other than raising money, investigating everything and everyone, and spending more time fighting with one another than actually working, what exactly has this Congress done? Nothing! That means We the People must exercise our responsibility. If a politician will not voluntarily resign after one or two terms, we must vote them out of office and elect someone who will fight for us. Power of the people! Wow what a concept. Now that is something Im sure would be pleasing to our Founding Fathers.Evlyn M. Skurow Crystal RiverThrow out roadresurfacing rulesI just got another letter from some obscure agency that the Citrus County commissioners are trying to hide their duty that they were elected to do, which is to watch out for all Citrus County residents. Again, I focus on the horse trails that pass for roads in the Green Acres area. In case most people dont know, everyones gas tax is what pays for road repairs. Not just the affluent. But even there, I have not seen any sign of repairs. We can build sidewalks to go nowhere, fix swimming pools that serve maybe 50 people, widen seldom-used roads, buy a $3 million building that at the time of purchase has no use except as an edifice to one of them or a past member of their group. (Watch and see.) I beg you people to come into the 21st century. Even the forefathers left room in the Constitution to make changes, but you keep hiding behind a 50-year rule and regulation. Its time to step up and wake up to the needs of county residents that you represent.William R.

VA managers lied about delaysWASHINGTON Managers at more than a dozen Veterans Affairs medical facilities lied to federal investigators about scheduling practices and other issues, the departments inspector general said Tuesday. Richard Griffin, the VAs acting inspector general, said his office is investigating allegations of wrongdoing at 93 VA sites across the country, including 12 reports that have been completed and submitted to the VA for review. Fourth US aid worker with Ebola arrives in AtlantaATLANTA The fourth U.S. aid worker sickened with Ebola arrived in Atlanta on Tuesday, mirroring the carefully choreographed routine of the two Americans already successfully treated and released from Emory University Hospitals special isolation unit. The latest patient unidentified by hospital officials, who cited privacy restrictions arrived more than a month after missionaries Dr. Kent Brantly, 33, and Nancy Writebol, 59. All were flown in the same specially equipped medical plane from Africa to a military air base just outside Atlanta, then taken in ambulances with police escorts to the hospital. Helicopters buzzed above, and reporters and television cameras gathered in clusters along the street. The patients wore bulky, protective suits. On Tuesday, Emorys third patient walked from the ambulance, as Brantly did. Writebol was taken on a stretcher.New York police prepare for 9/11NEW YORK Air strikes in Iraq, ongoing unrest in Syria and the beheadings of two American journalists are casting a long shadow over the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. While there is no specific threat against New York ahead of the Thursday commemoration, the rising power of disparate militant groups around the world presents the most complex terrorism danger since the twin towers were destroyed, New York intelligence officials said this week. New York remains the top target, and that makes preparing for big events, including the U.S. Open tennis tournament, the United Nations General Assembly and the Sept. 11 commemoration, that much more critical, officials said. The White House said in a statement that Obama met Tuesday with senior administration officials to review security threats and preparedness ahead of the 9/11 anniversary. New York Police Commissioner William Bratton said the department is prepared. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A12WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Raging floods kill more than 440JHANG, Pakistan Raging monsoon floods sweeping across India and Pakistan have killed more than 440 people, authorities said Tuesday, warning hundreds of thousands more to be prepared to flee their homes as helicopters and boats raced to save marooned victims. Authorities in Pakistan said the floods, which began Sept. 3, are the worst since massive flooding killed 1,700 people in 2010. Pakistans minister for water and power, Khwaja Mohammad Asif, warned parliament that some 700,000 people have been told to leave their homes, which could be inundated in the next four days. Pakistani and Indian troops have been using boats and helicopters to drop food supplies for stranded families and evacuate victims. However, the challenge of the situation grows as more than 1.5 million people are now affected as the rushing waters have destroyed the homes of thousands of families.Australia may raise terror threatCANBERRA, Australia Australias domestic spy chief said the country may elevate its terrorism threat to the second-highest level within days because of the growing danger posed by Islamic State supporters. Australian Security Intelligence Organization Director-General David Irvine told Australian Broadcasting Corp. television in an interview late Tuesday that Australias terrorist threat level could be lifted from medium to high before he retires at the end of this week. He described the current threat as a very elevated level of medium. The Australian terrorist threat level has remained unchanged at medium since the four-tier National Terrorism Public Alert System was introduced in 2003. ASIO on Wednesday could not immediately provide information on whether the threat level had been higher than medium on the previous fivetier system that had existed since 1978.Syria insurgents to release peacekeepersSUVA, Fiji Fijis military chief said Wednesday that Syrian insurgents have agreed to release 45 United Nations peacekeepers later this week without conditions.

He didnt give a precise timetable or specifics of how the handover would take place. World BRIEFS From wire reports Airliner crash report inconclusive Associated PressHRABOVE, Ukraine A childs jump rope, its yellow handles blistered and charred. A burned book in Tagalog. Chunks of twisted fuselage. More than seven weeks after being shot from the sky, the wreckage from Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 still lay strewn Tuesday across the fields of eastern Ukraine. As evidence of the July 17 aviation disaster that killed all 298 people on board remained exposed to the elements, investigators hundreds of miles away in the Netherlands who have not yet visited the crash site because it is deemed too dangerous released a preliminary report that left key questions unanswered. The plane had no mechanical or other technical problem in the seconds before it broke up in the sky after being struck by multiple highenergy objects from outside the aircraft, the report said. There were multiple punctures in the cockpit and front section of the fuselage, it said damage that could be caused by a missile that detonates in front of its target and peppers it with small chunks of metal. However, investigators did not identify the source of the fragments or say who fired them. Although the report drew no conclusions about responsibility, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said the findings were consistent with our original assessment, that it was likely shot down by one of these surface-to-air missiles fired from separatist-controlled territory in eastern Ukraine.

Canadian scientists find ship lost 170 years ago in Arctic Associated PressTORONTO One of two British explorer ships that vanished in the Arctic nearly 170 years ago during a search for the fabled Northwest Passage has been found, Canadas prime minister announced Tuesday in a discovery that could unlock one of historys biggest mysteries and swell Canadian pride. Last seen in the 1840s while under the command of Rear Adm. Sir John Franklin, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror have long been among the most sought-after prizes in marine archaeology and the subject of songs, poems and novels. Prime Minister Stephen Harpers office said the well-preserved wreck of one of the vessels was found Sunday with the help of a remotely operated underwater vehicle. It was 11 meters below the surface, near King William Island, about 1,200 miles northwest of Toronto. Harper said that it is unclear which ship it is, but that sonar images yielded enough information to confirm it was one of Franklins. This is truly a historic moment for Canada, said Harper, who was beaming, uncharacteristically. This has been a great Canadian story and mystery and the subject of scientists, historians, writers and singers, so I think we really have an important day in mapping the history of our country. Harper said the discovery would shed light on what happened to Franklins crew. Franklin and 128 hand-picked officers and men disappeared after setting out in 1845 for the Northwest Passage, the longsought shortcut to Asia that supposedly ran from the Atlantic to the Pacific by way of the harsh, ice-choked Arctic. Historians believe the ships were lost in 1848 after they became locked in the ice near King William Island and the crews abandoned them in a hopeless bid to reach safety. Inuit lore tells of white men who were starving as late as the winter of 1850 on the Royal Geographical Society Island. For many years afterward, Franklin was celebrated as a Victorian-era hero. Dozens of searches by the British and Americans in the 1800s failed to locate the wrecks, and some of those expeditions ended in tragedy, too. But they opened up parts of the Canadian Arctic to discovery and ultimately spied a Northwest Passage, though it proved inhospitable to shipping because of ice and treacherous weather. Associated PressGENEVA Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere reached a record high in 2013 as increasing levels of man-made pollution transform the planet, the U.N. weather agency said Tuesday. The heat-trapping gas blamed for the largest share of global warming rose to global concentrations of 396 parts per million last year, the biggest year-to-year change in three decades, the World Meteorological Organization said in an annual report. Thats an increase of 2.9 ppm from the previous year and is 42 percent higher than before the Industrial Age, when levels were about 280 parts per million. Based on the current rate, the worlds carbon dioxide pollution level is expected to cross the 400 ppm threshold by 2016, said WMO Secretary-General Michel Jarraud. That is way beyond the 350 ppm that some scientists and environmental groups promote as a safe level and which was last seen in 1987. CO2 emissions are growing mainly in China and other large developing countries as their economies expand. So far developed and developing countries have failed to reach a binding pact that would curb emissions globally. The goal of U.N. climate talks is to deliver such an agreement next year. Concentrations of CO2 build up over time because it stays in the atmosphere for decades. So even if emissions stopped today it would take many years before concentrations dropped significantly. Top climate scientists are now becoming increasingly skeptical that countries across the globe will meet the voluntary goals they set at the 2009 Copenhagen climate summit of limiting global warming to about 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit above preindustrial levels. In a draft report last month, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said it is looking more likely that the world will shoot past that point and by mid-century temperatures will increase by about another 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit compared to temperatures from 1986 to 2005. And by the end of the century that scenario will bring temperatures about 6.7 degrees warmer, it said. We know without any doubt that our climate is changing and our weather is becoming more extreme due to human activities such as the burning of fossil fuels, Jarraud said. Time is not on our side, for sure. To address the challenge, U.N. SecretaryGeneral Ban Ki-moon has invited heads of state and other leaders to a Sept. 23 climate change summit in New York on the sidelines of the annual U.N. General Assembly. President Barack Obama has said he will attend to help spur new commitments from governments, industry and civil groups for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. UN: CO2 pollution levels at annual record high Associated PressA poor air quality sign is posted over a highway last year in Salt Lake City.

Baseball/ B2 Scoreboard/B3 Sports briefs/ B3 Lottery, TV/B3 Tennis/B4 Golf/B4 Rays edge out Yankees 4-3./B2 SPORTSSection BWEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Seven Rivers surges past Citrus, unbeaten in county C.J. RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO Perfect, thus far. Thats Seven Rivers Christians volleyball record, at least against Citrus County rivals. The Warriors completed a firstround sweep Tuesday when they cruised past Citrus 25-19, 25-17, 25-13. Seven Rivers improved to 3-1 this season with the win, while the Hurricanes slipped to 2-3. For Seven Rivers, punctuating its triumph is the decisive manner in which it was delivered. The Warriors have played their three county rivals once each and they have won all three, without losing a set. The formula used in subduing Citrus was similar to those used against Crystal River and Lecanto play sharp defense, keep moving and digging opponents shots, and take advantage of opportunities when they appear. We played well as a team, Seven Rivers coach Wanda Grey said. Weve been talking about playing smart, making the smart play when we get a good pass. It was a bit rough in the beginning, but I think we really came back and played solid as a team, utilizing everybody. Thats something weve definitely improved upon from last year. Against the Hurricanes, Seven Rivers simply wore them out, which was indicative in the set scores. In each set, the Warriors put together a string of points that Citrus couldnt match. In the first, it was knotted at 13-all before Seven Rivers pulled away with a 10-2 run. Julia Eckart and Michaela Wallace contributed a couple of kills apiece during Are the Gators SEC ready? Associated PressGAINESVILLE Floridas season opener went about as well as the Gators could have expected. The revamped offense totaled 655 yards and didnt have a turnover. The defense gave up 125 yards and posted a shutout. Special teams also were impressive. Together, the units gave the Gators their first victory in 11 months. Hammering Eastern Michigan 65-0 provided a much-needed boost for a team that lost confidence last year, which ended with the programs first losing season since 1979. Now, the Gators want a better test a Southeastern Conference opponent. Florida (1-0) opens SEC play Saturday against Kentucky, which has lost 27 in a row in the series. We put on a good show and that was something to applaud, but this is SEC ball now and we know the level of competition definitely steps up and takes another jump, offensive tackle Chaz Green said Tuesday. CROSS COUNTRY NOTEBOOKLARRYBUGG CorrespondentSeven Rivers Christian sophomore cross country runner Paige Eckart has threatened to get to the state meet in the past. She reached the regionals in both her eighthand ninth-grade seasons. She starts this season hoping to reach Tallahassee in November. She had a clocking of 24:13 for the best time by a Seven Rivers runner at the Lecanto Invitational on Saturday at Lecanto High. I think it was a good way to start the season, Eckart said. They (the competition) are very good. We have gotten better on the hills. Running for her is a mind-over-matter situation and she likes it. I like the mental aspect, she said. You can overcome your stomach and legs. She may need to boost her confidence level, however. I dont expect (to get to state), she said. She has a new coach in Alexandra Robison, who was a cross country runner in high school. Robison appreciates her top girl runner. Shes been running for years and she loves it, Robison said. She has a great attitude. She did a great job. She always has a smile on her face and finished strong. If Eckart can get to state in Tallahassee, both the runner and her coach should be wearing some broad smiles.Eckart seeking that trip to state Felton may be new bright star for Crystal RiverLARRYBUGG CorrespondentThe Crystal River High School girls cross country team used to be spoiled. Either the team or an individual would get to run at the state meet every year. Last year, the Pirates did not qualify anyone for the Tallahassee meet. This year, they look like they have at least one runner who could be Tallahasseebound. Freshman Jillian Felton ran her first varsity race Saturday and took ninth in the Lecanto Invitational with a time of 21:04.96. There were 30 teams competing and 186 competitors in the girls varsity race alone. Felton has the lean, athletic build and looks like a good bet for a state meet appearance this year or in the future. She did a great job, Crystal River coach Deirdra Byrne said. She has been running for years and loves it. She has a smile on her face and a good attitude. She finished strong. Felton may be the leader and strong runner that the Pirates can rally around. She also happens to be an A student. She may be threatening the local cross country queen by years end. Lecanto Highs Claire Farnsworth ran a 19:58 and took third in the meet. Farnsworth qualified for state last year and finished 40th. As a team, the Pirates were 12th out of 30 teams with 386 points at the Lecanto meet. Felton said she loves her coaches. Byrne is the head girls coach and Tim Byrne, her husband, is the boys coach. Tim Byrne coached a Lecanto boys team to a state title in 1995. I like it at Crystal River (High), Felton said. I love the coaches, too. They are so good.

Associated PressNEW YORK Left fielder Matt Joyce threw out Stephen Drew in the fifth inning when catcher Ryan Hanigan blocked the sliding runner, and the Tampa Bay Rays held on to beat the fading New York Yankees 4-3 Tuesday night. Hours after Major League Baseball gave teams and umpires new guidelines on what catchers can do under this years experimental rule designed to avoid collisions, the latest instructions were put to a test when Drew tried to score what would have been the tying run. Drew was on second when Jacoby Ellsbury singled sharply to left, and third base coach Rob Thomson waved Drew around. Joyce threw home, and Hanigan gave Drew no lane to the plate as he awaited the throw, which arrived in plenty of time. Hanigan tagged the sliding runner, and Drew was called out by plate umpire Vic Carapazza.AMERICAN LEAGUE Orioles 4, Red Sox 1BOSTON Alejandro De Aza hit two homers, Adam Jones added another and the Baltimore Orioles won for the 10th time in 13 games with a 4-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox. Chris Tillman (12-5) gave up one run in five innings, his 18th straight start in which he allowed three earned runs or fewer. Zach Britton pitched the ninth for his 34th save in 38 opportunities. The first-place Orioles maintained their 10-game lead in the AL East over the Toronto Blue Jays, who beat the Chicago Cubs 9-2. The New York Yankees fell 11 games behind Baltimore after losing to the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3. Last-place Boston is a season-high 22 1/2 games out of first one year after winning the World Series.Twins 4, Indians 3CLEVELAND Oswaldo Arcias two-run homer capped Minnesotas four-run fourth inning against Trevor Bauer, and the Twins dented Clevelands playoff hopes with a 4-3 victory. The last-place Twins won for just the fourth time in 16 games. Minnesota rookie Trevor May (2-4), who entered with a 9.38 ERA, limited the Indians to just two runs in five innings. Arcias homer off Bauer (5-8) made it 4-2, and the Twins hung on despite doing nothing else against the righthander.Tigers 4, Royals 2DETROIT Max Scherzer escaped a bases-loaded jam in the fifth, Rajai Davis and J.D. Martinez homered, and the Detroit Tigers beat Kansas City 4-2 to pull within percentage points of the Royals atop the AL Central. Scherzer (16-5) allowed a run and seven hits in 6 2/3 innings. Kansas City was down 3-1 in the fifth when Alex Gordons deep fly to right went just foul with two on. Gordon walked to load the bases with one out, but Salvador Perez lined out and Eric Hosmer struck out. Joe Nathan earned his 30th save in 36 chances, allowing two infield singles to start the ninth before ending it with two strikeouts sandwiched around a picked-off runner. Kansas Citys Jason Vargas (11-8) allowed four runs in 5 1/3 innings.NATIONAL LEAGUE Nationals 6, Braves 4WASHINGTON Adam LaRoche kept up his torrid stretch with two hits and two RBIs, and the Washington Nationals essentially put to rest any thought that there is still a serious race for the NL East title with a 6-4 win over the Atlanta Braves. Washingtons second victory in two nights over the Braves, gave the Nationals a nine-game lead over their second-place rivals with 19 to play. Atlanta was a regular nemesis for about a year and a half, but the Nationals have put the kibosh on that trend by winning five of the last seven meetings. Jordan Zimmermann (11-5) allowed four runs (two earned) with seven strikeouts and no walks in six innings. He hasnt lost a decision since July 11 and is 5-0 and the Nationals are 8-0 in his last eight starts.Reds 9, Cardinals 5CINCINNATI Devin Mesoraco homered and drove in three runs, and Mike Leake pitched into the seventh inning and doubled home a run, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 9-5 victory that ended their six-game losing streak against the St. Louis Cardinals. The NL Central leaders lost for only the second time in 11 games and maintained their 4 1/2-game lead over Pittsburgh. St. Louis is 10-4 against the Reds and 40-25 overall in the division. The Reds won for the third time in 11 games. They are 17-33 since the All-Star break, a slide that has dropped them out of contention. Leake (11-11) was coming off his worst start of the season, giving up a season-high seven runs and three homers during a 9-7 loss in Baltimore last Thursday. Against the Cardinals, Leake allowed three runs and eight hits.Phillies 4, Pirates 3PHILADELPHIA Maikel Franco hit a tiebreaking single in the seventh inning to lift the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Freddy Galvis homered, doubled and scored the go-ahead run after an infield single and a stolen base. Justin De Fratus (3-1) pitched a scoreless inning for the win. Jonathan Papelbon finished for his 36th save in 39 chances. The Pirates entered the night with a 1 1/2-game lead over Atlanta and Milwaukee for the second NL wild card. The last-place Phillies have won 10 of 15. Galvis led off the bottom of the seventh with a grounder to deep shortstop for a single off Justin Wilson (3-4). After a pair of strikeouts, Galvis stole second. He scored on Francos hit to right. Galvis hit a drive way out to right to tie it at 3 in the fifth.Mets 2, Rockies 0NEW YORK Jacob deGrom burnished his rookie of the year credentials by pitching three-hit ball for eight dominant innings, and the New York Mets held on to beat the Colorado Rockies 2-0 for their sixth win in seven games. Jeurys Familia got Wilin Rosario to ground out with the bases loaded for his fifth save. Mets closer Jenrry Mejia gave up two hits and a walk and got only one out before manager Terry Collins brought on Josh Edgin. The left-hander struck out slugger Corey Dickerson. The win came after the Mets learned captain David Wright would be shut down for the rest of the season because of inflammation in his left shoulder. The third baseman had an MRI on Tuesday and didnt play. Juan Lagares had an RBI single to help the Mets move to five games of .500 (70-75).INTERLEAGUE Blue Jays 9, Cubs 2TORONTO Jose Bautista hit a go-ahead, three-run double in the seventh inning and the Toronto Blue Jays rallied to beat the Chicago Cubs 9-2. Mark Buehrle (12-9) allowed two runs and 10 hits in seven innings to stop a six-start winless streak, helping the Blue Jays improve to 6-2 in September. Aaron Sanchez pitched eighth and Daniel Norris finished for Toronto, which came in five games out in the AL wild-card race.

The estate of late Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson has reached a definitive agreement to sell the franchise to Buffalo Sabres owners Terry and Kim Pegula. The announcement was made Tuesday afternoon in a four paragraph news release issued by the team. The deal was reached a day after the Pegulas were one of three groups to submit their formal bids. The sale is subject to being approved by a three-quarters majority of the NFLs 31 owners, which is expected to come at league meetings on Oct. 8. Though the sale price was not revealed, the Bills said the Pegulas will be the sole owners. Wilsons widow, Mary Wilson, credited the Pegulas for their commitment to keeping the franchise in western New York and carrying on her husbands legacy.US beats Slovenia 119-76 to reach semis at worldsBARCELONA, Spain Klay Thompson scored 20 points and James Harden had 12 of his 14 in the third quarter after a scoreless first half, helping the U.S. national team turn a close game into a 11976 rout of Slovenia on Tuesday in the quarterfinals of the Basketball World Cup. Kenneth Faried also had 14 for the Americans, who will play Lithuania on Thursday in Barcelona for a spot in Sundays gold-medal game in Madrid. Lithuania beat Turkey 73-61 earlier Tuesday. Derrick Rose finished with 12 points after coming into the game shooting 8 for 37 in the World Cup. Goran Dragic of the Phoenix Suns lead Slovenia with 13 points. The Americans led by only five points early in the third quarter before tearing off a 27-10 run. Harden and Stephen Curry finally got going after the All-Stars combined to miss all 12 shots in the first half.From staff and wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS RUNContinued from Page B1 Upcoming racesThis Saturday, the area teams will be scattered.

Chase Benoist, Lecanto 19:06.80 NOTEBOOKContinued from Page B1 The Wildcats (2-0) opened as a 17point underdog, which seems low considering Floridas average margin of victory in the last 10 meetings is 29.4 points. Then again, the Wildcats have outscored their opponents, Tennessee-Martin and Ohio, by 62 points this season and have several players Florida recruited. Regardless, the Gators realize this is an important step in bouncing back from last years debacle. Were really excited to get into the meat of our schedule, said quarterback Jeff Driskel, who recorded career highs in completion and attempts in Floridas new spread scheme. Obviously Kentucky is in the East, and thats a big game for us. We want to win every East game like every other game. Its one we need. To have a good year, well have to win this game. Well do everything in our power to do so. Florida was supposed to have two games two lopsided wins, really under its belt before playing Kentucky. But its original opener was canceled because of weather, leaving the Gators with just one tuneup before the Wildcats and just two games before what could be a critical SEC matchup at Alabama. So playing well against Eastern Michigan was important on many levels. You know we talked about it as an offensive staff that it would be nice to have some success early because then it does feed on itself, it does help, offensive coordinator Kurt Roper said. If you go out and have some successful plays, and Im talking truly about Saturday, go out in the first quarter and have some successful plays, it can keep growing. So you hope thats the case, you know, that our confidence keeps growing and we keep making plays. The Gators are making a few adjustments in the wake of injuries to tight end Jake McGee and left tackle D.J. Humphries. McGee, a fifth-year senior and graduate transfer from Virginia, broke two bones in his lower left leg Saturday, had surgery after the game and will miss the rest of the season. Without him, fellow senior Clay Burton and freshman DeAndre Goolsby will be more involved. Florida also will be without Humphries for at least two games, meaning he will miss games against Kentucky and Alabama. The Gators moved Green to left tackle and will start Rod Johnson in Greens usual spot at right tackle. It takes some adjustment, yes, Green said. But I think this week in practice is something that will be good for me to get back and work that side and get my technique back down. Given what Florida went through last year regarding injuries, losing McGee for the year and Humphries for at least two games were the only negative aspects of an opener that did all it could to help the Gators erase memories of last year and prepare for a schedule that includes eight consecutive SEC games. Its always good at the beginning when you start out putting up big performances, but things get tough down the road, Green said. Its a long season so it can definitely change. GATORSContinued from Page B1 that string, with Wallace and Amanda Zachar adding a pair of service aces. The second set was similar, with the score tied at 15-all before the Warriors took command with a 10-2 finishing run. Again Eckart contributed heavily, collecting a pair of blocks that resulted in points down the stretch for Seven Rivers. The Warriors took command in the third set earlier, pulling away from a 7-all tie to go up 20-9. Alyssa Gage did a lot of damage, getting three kills in that surge. Asked for her appraisal of her teams performance, Citrus coach Sandra VanDervort said, Not good. Weve got to work on our communication. We werent communicating at all, we werent finding their holes. Our serve reception was probably the best its been, but our offense hasnt been able to connect. They have a very good defense, I will give Seven Rivers credit, their girls move very well. They hit us a lot right on the back line. The numbers compiled by the Hurricanes were hardly imposing. Sydney Clark had a decent match, leading Citrus with six kills and three service aces. Alicia Breviario added nine assists. Gage topped Seven Rivers with 13 kills, 17 assists, 12 digs and three blocks, while Wallace finished with 10 kills and three service aces. Kim Iwaniec totaled 18 assists and 11 digs, Zachar had five aces to go with her two blocks and Eckart got six kills and six blocks. Citrus opens its 5A-6 season Thursday at Lecanto, then it will take on Seven Rivers again this weekend when both compete in the Bishop McLaughlin Tournament. SURGESContinued from Page B1 Associated PressNEW YORK The Tampa Bay Rays are ending Drew Smylys season after 153 innings. With the Rays out of contention, they told the 25year-old left-hander of their decision before Tuesday nights game at the New York Yankees. Smyly was 9-10 with a 3.24 ERA, including 3-1 with a 1.70 ERA since he was acquired from Detroit on July 31 as part of a threeteam trade that sent ace David Price from the Rays to the Tigers. Smylys previous high was 126 innings for Class A Lakeland and Double-A Erie in 2011. His 2012 season was interrupted by injuries and he pitched out of the bullpen last year. Rays manager Joe Maddon said a player likely would be brought up from the minors to take Smylys turn in the rotation Friday at Toronto. Rays end LHP Smylys season

EDUCATIONSection CWEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleForeign exchange student Jonas Bartholdi, right, works with fellow Citrus High School wrestler Mike Zuppinger last week during practice at the Inverness school. Bartholdi, a Denmark native, will attend CHS the entire school year. ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerEditors note: Citrus County has become home for hundreds of exchange students from diverse countries around the world. This story is part of an ongoing series that takes a look into the lives of exchange students, here and abroad, throughout their 2014-15 school-year experience.Sixteen-yearold Jonas Bartholdi has called Citrus County home since Aug. 2. When school started on Aug. 6, Bartholdi quickly had to become acquainted with Citrus County School Districts system of learning. I already felt comfortable with English, because we have to take 10 years of English in Denmark, Bartholdi said. However, I wasnt here very long before I had to start school, but it was OK. I like the school and the wrestling program is really good. A wrestler for the Citrus High School team, Bartholdi was ecstatic the first person he met from the United States was professional wrestler Hulk Hogan. He was able to take a selfie with Hogan on the airplane. To him, this was a sign his U.S. exchange experience was going to be unforgettable. You dont get to choose, which country you go to, Bartholdi said. But the United States was my first choice. When I heard I was going to Florida, I was excited. He loves math, language arts and sports. However, Bartholdi said even those subjects and extracurricular activities have been an adjustment for him, as Denmark does them in their own way. Bartholdi recently sat down with a Chroniclereporter and compared and contrasted Denmarks and Citrus Countys education systems. Every time I discover something new in the United States, it is different than what I am used to, he said, but added that isnt always a bad thing, either. School system is strict The school system is very strict in America. It is very free at home, Bartholdi said. We can eat whenever we want to in class. If the teachers have a problem with it, they really cant do anything about it because we dont care as much about what the teacher says. If the teacher gives you an order here you have to do it, he said. But in Denmark we dont. I knew how it was already, so I was prepared. I decided before I came I didnt want to take any of my behaviors in Denmark to the United States. Lesson system We dont have block systems, Bartholdi said. We have 45-minute periods. When our period is done, we stay in the classroom and a new teacher will come in. We dont switch classes. The teacher switches classes. I like the idea of standing up and walking around to get the blood circulation moving, he said. By third period in Denmark, you dont even want to listen anymore because you are tired. Transportation and roads Because of the size of America you need a car here, Bartholdi said. In Denmark, we have transportation buses that take us to the inner city. When I was emailing Doug (Lobel, Rotary Youth Exchange District 6950 chairman) before I came to the United States, I asked if I could take my bike to school, he said. He said it wouldnt be possible because of the distance. Also, in Denmark there is a road for the cars and then a road for the bikes. Education and Technology All education in Denmark is free, including college, Bartholdi said. We have had iPads in the schools for years now. I was kind of shocked that I had to do everything by hand here. I have done everything on computers in Denmark since the fifth grade. So, when I started having to use a pencil again, I hated it. Tobacco and Alcohol You can smoke in high school, Bartholdi said. You cant buy it until you are 18. But it is easy to get. The drinking age is 16 and we cant drive till we are 18. Drinking is considered more of a social acceptance and requirement. Drinking is also a part of the high school, he said. We have a bar at every high school. The teachers drink with the students after school on Fridays. Its meant for the teachers to socialize with the students. My mom is a teacher. She gets paid to go to the bar with the students. It is very important that the teachers get a social relationship with the students. Teachers will even bring students home and have a barbecue. We think the education works better when the teachers and students are close. Over-the-counter medications Our school system is so free, so there is no note for medications, Bartholdi said. We can take what we want at school. And we dont have to have a police officer at our schools, either. Graduation requirement High school is not a requirement in Denmark, Bartholdi said. You can learn a trade and still go to college without high school graduation. Positives In Denmark, we dont have sports attached to the school system, Bartholdi said. If you want to play soccer, you have to go to a private club. Schools and sports are separate in Denmark. Here, you mix it together and I think that is an important thing. Sports are important in the United States. I love that. Negatives None of the kids take showers after sports or gym, Bartholdi said. They will dress and go on to the next block. It is really strange to me. In Denmark, we are taught about maintaining proper hygiene. Polite community Everyone I have met has been very friendly, Bartholdi said. That is one of the things that I like the most since I have been here. You are so polite and interested. We are not like that in Denmark because we are very rushed. We dont give ourselves time to be polite.Contact Chronicle education reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-563-5660, ext. 1334, or eworthington@chronicle online.com. Danish student gets used to life at CHS ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerImagine being only 15, 16, 17 or 18 years old and traveling across the world to live with strangers. You know no one, their customs are different from yours and you are required to attend school. Welcome to the Rotary Youth Exchange program. Rotary is an all-volunteer organization, said Doug Lobel, Rotary Youth Exchange Florida District 6950 chairman serving Citrus, Pinellas, Pasco and Hernando counties. Rotary is one of approximately 27 exchange programs. However, it is the only program that is a true exchange: oneforone students. In most programs, parents pay $18,000 to $25,000 to have their child come to school in the United States. In the Rotary Youth Exchange program, the real cost to the parents is the cost of the airline ticket to and from and cost of a medical insurance policy while they are here. That is approximately $5,000 for the year. Room and board is provided by the Rotary Club. Students live with three families throughout the year. Culturally, each family is different, Lobel said. This is a cultural exchange. They come here for school, but typically they dont get any credit for it and neither do our students going to their country. If you were going to Denmark, how do you think you would perform in school when you dont know the language? For the first few months, you will be lost as you are trying to learn the language to compete in school. But it is required under the visa that you do attend school. Because the Rotary Club is a volunteer organization, exchange students are required to volunteer while in the United States. Denmark exchange student Jonas Bartholdi said he has to do community service at least one time per month. Recently, he spent time with the Rotary Club of Homosassa Springs cleaning up lyngbya from the coast of the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park for its first One Rake at a Time-inspired community project. Therefore, Lobel said, the exchange program is not for just anystudent. Students have to make decent grades and have the right mannerism to be able to attend an exchange in a foreign country and live with families that they have never met before. That is the real criteria, Lobel said. We also have to determine that the parents are supportive of when little Johnny is gone that they arent going to get upset and demand their students come home. We have had outstanding students that did not get selected because one of the parents showed that they were not going to be supportive. We cant afford to send the students and have them come back early. It is a bad reflection on the program and the United States. They are ambassadors of their country and our students areRotary program expands kids worlds Special to the ChronicleJonas Bartholdi takes a photo of himself and professional wrestler Hulk Hogan while traveling this summer.

ALS hit close to home last year for Seven Rivers when one of their teachers, Dr. Ken Wackes, was diagnosed with ALS. Wackes has dedicated his life to education by teaching and administrating in schools for more than 40 years, He has made a huge impact on the lives of students and teachers at Seven Rivers. The ALS ice water bucket challenge has gone viral in social media and we at SRCS think its a great way to show solidarity and donate funds to a very worthy cause, said Director of Advancement Wendy Cash. Part of the raised funds will go to the ALS Association and the other part will go directly to Dr. Wackes to aid in medical costs associated with his ALS treatment. The students and their families responded very generously, said Business Director Margaret Whitchurch. As of today, weve raised over $3,200, but donations are still coming in. Students, faculty take challenge for ALS, teacher diagnosed with disease RIGHT: Dr. Ken Wackes, a Seven Rivers teacher diagnosed with ALS, and Dana James, head of the school.

The series covers: the preamble, the seven articles and 27 amendments the big ideas of the document the history of its making and the signers In Star Trek, if the crew wanted anything blankets, a special meal, gemstones the replicator could just pop it out. A few years ago, this sounded like far-out science fiction. But today this technology, 3-D printing, is just around the corner. People are making houses, toys, jewelry, airplane parts and exact copies of dinosaur fossils with 3-D printers. NASA is running experiments on printing a moon base out of lunar soil, or any meal an astronaut wants. It is sending a 3-D printer to the space station to learn how astronauts can create replacement parts and tools. But the most exciting possibilities for 3-D printing are in medicine. Scientists are testing hundreds of different ways 3-D printing could help heal people. It could create exact artificial copies of a damaged arm or leg. It could copy cancer tissue so doctors could figure out the best way to kill it. Someday, we may even be able to re-create whole organs for people needing a new liver or heart. To learn more about this amazing new technology, The Mini Page talked with an expert on 3-D printing from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.Whats the difference? In 2-D printing, the letters or pictures are printed on a flat sheet of paper. They are in two dimensions: length and width. In 3-D printing, objects have a third dimension: depth. Objects printed in 3-D are more like sculptures. A 2-D printer receives computer commands telling it where to place tiny bits of ink. One by one, these ink drops create letters or pictures. A 3-D printer receives computer commands telling it where to place tiny bits of materials. The materials can be almost anything, from plastic, to living cells, to metal. The 3-D printer puts down the materials one layer at a time, building up the object. Adding layers Objects can be made in almost any shape. Because material is added in layers, this type of printing is also called additive manufacturing. The first 3-D printers came out in the 1980s, but in the last few years, the equipment has become much better and much less expensive. New, inventive ways to use this technology are being discovered all over.Science Fiction Turning Into FactPrinting the Future in 3-D photo courtesy Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative MedicineA 3-D printer at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, prints an experimental kidney. In 2000, a medical researcher, Thomas Boland, invented the first general bioprinter by remodeling a regular inkjet printer. He replaced the ink in the cartridges with living cells. When 3-D printing uses living tissue, it is called bioprinting The material used to print the living tissue is called bioink photo by David McNally, RDECOMA 3-D printer head drops bits of plastic to build layers of a tool. from The Mini Page 2014 Universal UclickArtificial body parts With 3-D printing, making prosthetics (prahs-THEH-tiks), or artificial body parts, is much cheaper. For example, with traditional manufacturing, a prosthetic childs hand might cost $25,000 to $50,000. As the child grows, the hand would have to be replaced over and over. This could get very expensive. With 3-D printing, a prosthetic hand might cost $5. Experts believe such inexpensive prosthetics will be easily available within 10 years. A 3-D printed part can be made to fit each persons body exactly. This means the body part will work better and be more comfortable. A part could be built in a day. Already, people are using 3-Dprinted hands, arms, hips, teeth, skulls, knees and ears. These prosthetics are not living. Printing live limbs is many years away. But prosthetic 3-D body parts that move well could be available in a few years.Printing with living ink It is much harder to print with living cells than with other material. Living material needs to be nourished and kept moist. Body cells act together in ways we dont always understand. Sometimes body parts are too complicated to print directly. For example, a blood vessel is hard to print. The printer makes a mold of the blood vessel first, then coats it with a special protein gel that needs to be kept alive. With this process, doctors saved a 2-year-old girls life by bioprinting a windpipe for her.From Plastics to Living Tissue Super models Doctors are printing exact copies of body parts to help them learn. For example, they feed images of an injured heart into a computer. It creates a 3-D model from the images and sends the data to the printer. Out comes an exact copy of the heart, letting the doctor practice on it without worrying about hurting the patient. This is especially valuable with unusual or tricky problems. photo by Rick Sargent of Sargent Illustration and DesignThis artist imagines a kidney being printed inside a special chamber on the left.

All Rights ReservedMoe: Millie: Because people milk them dry! from The Mini Page 2014 Universal UclickCopying a community Doctors hope to be able to perform tests on 3-D prints of living tissue. For example, they could run tests on copies of a cancer tumor to target the exact medicine for killing the cancer. For years, doctors have been able to grow many copies of the same cell. But every living tissue is made from many types of cells. Cells talk to each other. They influence one anothers actions. Testing just one type of cell does not give a complete picture. With 3-D printing, researchers can duplicate the actual cell community. Medicines are tested on animals before being given to humans. The ability to test drugs on exact tissue copies would lessen animal testing.Beyond testing We are probably more than 50 years away from being able to print whole organs. But we are nearly able to print pieces of organs. If we could implant those pieces into a patient, the body could often heal itself. For example, if a patient had an injured kidney, doctors could take a sample of the part that was still healthy and print 3-D copies of it. They then would attach, or graft, the printed tissue onto the kidney. After that, the body would be able to do the rest of the repairs itself. Transplants Transplanting copies of a persons own tissue is much safer than transplanting tissue from someone else. Your body wants to kill cells that arent part of you. But it would see 3-D tissue copies as being identical to its own parts. Doctors could transplant the new tissue with a catheter (KA-the-ter), or special tube. Within a few years, doctors will probably be transplanting 3-D prints of simple tissues such as cartilage to repair joints such as knees. Writing on the body The U.S. military and Wake Forest Institute are working to treat burn patients with bioprinting. Now, doctors treat burns by removing healthy skin from a patients body. They use that skin to cover the burn. This is painful, and when a patient is badly burned, it can be hard to find enough healthy cells to graft. With 3-D printing, the patient would need to give up only a small amount of healthy skin, about half the size of a postage stamp.Printing to HealMaking bioink To make bioink, scientists would take cells from a persons own body. They wouldnt need a lot of original body cells. The printer could make as many copies as needed. Our bodies have a great ability to regrow living tissue. In most cases, scientists wouldnt even need special cells such as stem cells. In fact, they would probably just use fat cells. As with other body cells, fat cells could grow into other types of cells. Few people would be sad if they lost some fat cells!

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER10, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Shoshana Zuboff, who recently retired from her post as the Charles Edward Wilson Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School, said, Activities that seem to represent choices are often inert reproductions of accepted practice. There are bridge deals that appear to fit a mold, but with careful analysis, one can see that they are not an inert reproduction of accepted practice. In todays deal, South is in two no-trump. How should he plan the play after West leads the heart queen and East signals with his nine? South starts with six top tricks: two spades, one heart and three diamonds. There are two routes to eight tricks: four spades, one heart and three diamonds; or two spades, one heart and five diamonds. Getting four spade tricks seems to require the finesse to work a 50 percent chance; while collecting five diamond winners is a 54 percent shot. So it seems right to play on diamonds. Here, though, when the diamonds break badly, South does not have a hand entry to take the spade finesse. He will cash the spade ace and king to drop the queen, but that only provides three tricks in the suit, not four. The right line, after winning with the heart ace, is to lead the spade jack to encourage West to cover if he has the queen. But after he plays low, declarer wins with dummys king and cashes the spade ace. When the queen drops, South leads a spade to his nine, then takes dummys three top diamonds and spade 10 for his contract. If the spade queen does not appear, declarer needs diamonds to run.

We were willing to overlook the reek of tobacco and the cigarette butts in our driveway. The cat droppings in our flower and vegetable beds were harder to take. The real problem is that their teenagers race up and down the street at all hours and then park in front of our house smoking and playing with their phones while revving their very loud engines, setting our teeth on edge. These folks have a two-car garage, a concrete parking pad and a long driveway. Why are they parking on the street, let alone in front of the neighbors? We wanted to like these people, but now we just wish they would move out. Any suggestions? Talking to them didnt help. Disappointed Neighbor Dear Neighbor: Are there ordinances in your town prohibiting noise after a certain hour or leaving garbage on your property? If so, call the police when necessary. Do you have a neighborhood association that mediates disputes? Sometimes these things can be worked out with a third-party mediator. In the meantime, put up fences, block your driveway with plastic cones, have fans to block the noise and do whatever you need to in order to protect yourself from these barbarians until one of you moves or the kids leave. Dear Annie: About a year ago, my very bright 16-year-old granddaughter was diagnosed with schizencephaly, a very rare disease, and she has had seizures. She was put on medications and then was free of seizures for eight months. But recently, she had another seizure, and her medication is being reconsidered. How can I find out how to be helpful and supportive? She lives two hours away, and I no longer drive. Is there an organization for this? Deeply Concerned Old Grandma Dear Grandma: Schizencephaly is a birth defect that is extremely rare and can cause delays in speech and language skills, some paralysis and seizures. Doctors believe the causes include exposure to toxins or medications during pregnancy. We found one support group at schizkidz buddies.com, and you also can get information through wearerare.org/support for those with rare diseases. Bless you for wanting to help your grandchild in any way you can. Dear Annie: I have a piece of advice for Red Hat Mama, who is still waiting for a guy to ask her out. There are a lot of men who are uncomfortable asking out women we see only at church. All of my lady friends are women who asked me first. I might appear to have no problem with a friendly conversation, but its not the same as asking someone for a date. Im debating wearing a button that says, Please Ask Me. Then when someone asks me what the button means, I can tell them that Im more than happy for new friends to ask me to join them for activities. Im not that interested in becoming intimate or getting married, but I find it tremendously difficult to embarrass myself by asking a woman to join me and possibly getting a negative response. Im not one of those men who can tell at a glance whether someone is interested in me. I have mild Aspergers, and I dont read people well. So, Red Hot Mama and all of your cousins, please feel free to ask me. We can have a soda, share a pizza, play cards or get together with other friends. But you need to do the asking. Please Ask Me JohnAnnies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Punt, Pass and Kick Special to the ChronicleThe August Students of the Month for Inverness Christian Academy were honored for their character trait of obedience. Front to back, from left, are: Joshua Wilson, Alexus Leonard, Serenity Smith, William Smith, Brianna Smith, Trevor Breedlove, Levi McCoy and Justin Rossi. Obedience has its rewards ambassadors of our country. Students begin training in January for the exchange program; however, they dont find out until mid June if they are actually jumping on plane. If they are not doing the work that we have assigned, we tell them they are not going to cut it, Lobel said. A lot of times it is maturity, because we are talking 15-, 16-, 17and 18-year -olds. Lobel said 19 students arrived in the three-county district this year and 10 departed. Three of these students were from Lecanto High School. Students may be leaving for a year, but it really looks good on college applications and employment applications, if a student can leave and go to another country for a year and learn the language. There must be something special about that student, Lobel said. But what he stressed the most was that host families are also touched. We now have 19 students, Lobel said. When I retired, I was managing a company of 500 employees. This is much harder than that. But it is a labor of love. The single most difficult thing for me is finding host families for three months. You get more out of it than you give, he said. It adds a level of excitement to your life. We become many students second families.
