A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerThe tan serpentine fencing that hugs the contours of a stretch of County Road 486 near the entrances to the community of Pine Ridge is coming down. County officials acknowledge they received word from the Pine Ridge Property Owners Association to remove the fencing. We are looking at various ways to use the material after it is removed, said Larry Brock, the countys interim public works director, noting just when it will be removed is yet to be determined. The 6-foot-high PVC fence was installed in 2013 along the southern boundary of Pine Ridge and snakes on for 3,679 feet on C.R. 486 and was meant to offer residents a measure of privacy. The fence was part of a transaction between the county and the homeowners association when it acquired property from the association for right-of-way purposes. The fence cost $80,938 to build, Brock said. When work began to widen C.R. 486 to four lanes, most of the wooded buffer between the existing road and subdivision was reportedly cleared. The fence project paralleled work on the roadway. Work on the road and the fence were completed during the summer of 2013. As part of the deal with the county, the association also agreed to perpetually maintain the fence, Brock said.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS), in-car mobile services and mobile phone apps provide data about traffic conditions and travel time. A global mapper of traffic, a company called INRIX, analyzes this data to help transportation agencies find solutions for such problems as roads that are congested or bottlenecked, in addition to road planning. Pete Costello, a representative of INRIX based in Orlando, spoke Friday in Tampa to the staff directors of the metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) of West Central Florida, including Dennis Dix, Hernando/ Citrus MPO coordinator. Costello explained INRIXs data analytics toolset, which takes in real-time traffic information from drivers, who have become the firms network. Its app is available at www.inrix traffic.com.

Already out at least $40,000 in double payments on the Crystal River home that Gold Crest was building for his wife and him, Ready thought he was doing the right thing by sending in a formal complaint to the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, which oversees contractors in Florida. The agency responded in June, saying it was closing the case because Gold Crests owner, Michael Gilbert, had filed for bankruptcy. Ready wasnt happy about that, but at least he knew Gilberts contracting license would be expiring soon, ending chances of other customers ending up like he did. Then another former Gold Crest customer, who also had to pay thousands of dollars more for his home because Gilbert didnt pay the bills, informed Ready of the unthinkable: The DBPR had extended Gilberts contracting license another two years on Sept.1. The bottom line to all this is that the system is totally unfriendly to the average citizens that is trying to do the right thing, Ready wrote in an email to a Chroniclereporter. The system supports the criminal element in our society not the average citizen. Gilbert, despite having at least $120,000 in liens filed against him and former customers by subcontractors and suppliers, was able to extend his contractors license because the DBPR had neither convicted him of misapplying funds nor had it fined him, agency spokeswoman Chelsea Eagle said. The department has no official complaints on file.

AMANDALEEMYERS Associated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio One of the last times anyone ever saw Tommy Thompson, he was walking on the pool deck of a Florida mansion wearing nothing but eye glasses, leather shoes, black socks and underwear, his brown hair growing wild. It was a far cry from the conquering hero who, almost two decades before, docked a ship in Norfolk, Virginia, loaded with whats been described as the greatest lost treasure in American history thousands of pounds of gold that sat on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean for 131 years after the ship carrying it sank during a hurricane. On that day in 1989, Thompson couldnt contain a gap-toothed grin as a marching band played My Way and hundreds cheered his achievement. It was, indeed, monumental: the result of years of preparation, innovation, dogged single-mindedness and a belief that Thompson could not only find the gold, but also use the experience to track down other sunken treasure. We hope to be rich, he said then. But his victory was short-lived. Also in Norfolk that day were insurers laying claim to Thompsons gold. He would eventually win the legal nightmare that ensued, but those closest to him believe it was the beginning of the end. Soon another court fight began with investors who funded his dream but never saw a penny back, and Thompson grew increasingly private, transforming into a Howard Hughes-like recluse. Still, what came next was a surprise to all. Tommy Thompson disappeared. These days, off the South Carolina coast, a new expedition is underway to recover more treasure from the Ship of Gold, the sunken SS Central America. Inside the mess hall of the barge making the voyage hangs a Wanted poster of the man who first found the ship. The U.S. Marshals Service wanted the poster of Thompson displayed so the crew would recognize him in case he shows up, lured out of the shadows by the galling idea that someone else is collecting the gold he unearthed. Theyve awakened the sleeping beast, Marshals agent Mark Stroh said of the wave of publicity that has introduced the tale of the treasure and its fugitive discoverer to a new generation. Stroh and fellow agent Brad Fleming remain captivated by the man theyve pursued these past two years, since Thompson skipped a court date to explain whats become of the riches. Theyve done meticulous research on Thompson to better understand their target, splashed his face on electronic billboards and run down hundreds of tips from the public from the guy who thought he might have shared an elevator with Thompson at a Florida casino to a report that the name Tommy was signed on a memorial website for a dead friend of the treasure hunter. Nothing has panned out. I think he had calculated it, whatever you want to call it, an escape plan, a contingency plan to be gone, said Fleming. I think hes had that for a long time. As the agents shared Thompsons story, their mix of bewilderment and something akin to admiration for the treasure hunter was clear. Stroh likened Thompson to some of the greatest men in history. Christopher Columbus. Thomas Edison. He set out to find the Central America in the middle of a whole vast expanse of nothing and found it, and did it with relative ease, Stroh said, like he was trying to find a set of car keys he misplaced in his house, but the house is hundreds of miles of ocean. A person like that, the agent said, is not going to be pulled over for running a stop sign. As a child in his small hometown of Defiance, Ohio, Thompson displayed an intelligence that was as remarkable as his sometimes maddening refusal to do anything the normal way. His mother, Phyllis, described how her son took things apart and put them back together, just to understand how they worked. When he was 8, Thompson almost got his parents in trouble with the phone company for having two lines without paying for both. Turns out, the boy had split the wire, connected it to a jewelry box and built himself a telephone, according to author Gary Kinders Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea. Kinder said his book isnt really about a hunt for a shipwreck and its riches. Its about a guys brain and how it works, he said of Thompson. Theres something special about people like Tommy. Its someone ... who will not be put off by people telling him, This cannot be done. ... It requires a lot of faith in oneself, a lot of confidence, and slowly bringing people to share their vision. That talent was part of the reason Ohio businessmen got on board when Thompson set his sights on finding the Central America around 1983. In one of the worst shipping disasters in American history, the boat sank about 200miles off the South Carolina coast in September 1857; 425people drowned and thousands of pounds of California gold were lost, contributing to an economic panic. When Thompson, then 31, began approaching potential investors, he was an oceanic engineer at Battelle Memorial Institute, an international technology development group. In Columbus, where its headquartered, Battelles name is as synonymous with innovation and genius as MIT or Google. Thompson also had the backing of the dean of the mechanical engineering school at his alma mater, Ohio State University. Hes a very bright guy with lots of ideas, very creative and wild thinking, and just full of energy, said the dean, Don Glower, now 87 and retired. Glower and the schools head of fundraising arranged for Thompson to meet a group of wealthy Columbus-area businessmen who could finance Thompsons plans, with convincing.

Thompson led a group that recovered millions of dollars worth of sunken treasure, only to end up involved in court cases brought by dozens of insurance companies laying claim to the treasure. For more than two years, the U.S. Marshals Service has been on the hunt f or Tommy Thompson, an oceanic engineer and treasure hunter who is now a wanted federal fugitive. Here are five things to know about Thompson, the treasure he found and the disputes that followed. THE SHIP OF GOLD 1. The SS Central America, or so-called Ship of Gold, was a side-wheel steamship carrying passengers but also thousands of pounds of California Gold Rush gold when it sank in a hurricane 200miles off the South Carolina coast in 1857. The disaster killed 425people, and the golds loss triggered an economic panic. The shipwreck would sit nearly 2miles down at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean for 131 years. THE TREASURE HUNTER 2. Thompson, who grew up in Defiance, Ohio, and graduated from Ohio State University, is the oceanic engineer who found the SS Central America in 1988 and recovered about $50million worth of gold from the wreckage using technology he developed with a team of hand-picked experts. The discovery was a feat of engineering, and Thompson was hailed as a brilliant scientist. HUNTER BECOMES THE HUNTED 3. In 2012, an arrest warrant was issued for Thompson, and he has yet to be found. The treasure hunters friends and family believe he became a fugitive because court disputes regarding his search for the gold became too much for him. First, dozens of insurance companies sued for rights to the riches, a fight that lasted seven years before Thompson and his company were awarded 92percent of the treasure. Later, two investors who helped fund the treasure hunt and nine of Thompsons crew members also sued, saying they never saw a dime of returns even after Thompson sold the gold. Those two court fights are ongoing. SEARCH FOR THE SCIENTIST 4. Two U.S. Marshals Service agents based in Columbus are leading the hunt to find Thompson, who is wanted on a federal civil arrest warrant for failing to appear in court to provide a detailed accounting of what happened to the gold. In the past two years, they have done meticulous research on Thompson to better understand their target, splashed his face on electronic billboards in Ohio and Florida, where Thompson was last seen, and run down hundreds of tips from the public. NEW EXPEDITION 5. Even as the search for Thompson goes on, a new group of treasure hunters are bringing up gold from the SS Central America. Florida-based Odyssey Marine Exploration has recovered gold and silver bars and coins worth millions since first reaching the shipwreck in April, the first time anyone is believed to have visited the site since Thompson and his crew last did in 1991. The operation is being directed by a court-appointed receiver over two of Thompsons companies and could mark the first time investors who funded Thompsons dream see their share. FIVE THINGS TO KNOW A Gold Rush-era $20 gold coin recovered from the SS Central America, still with some Atlantic Ocean residue on it, is shown in September 2013 at a coin expo in Long Beach, Calif.

MUSIC AT THE MALL Associated PressORLANDO Buoyed by a significant cash advantage and polls that show Gov. Rick Scott either tied or leading, Florida Republicans on Saturday contended they are focused and ready for the November election. The Republican Party of Florida met at one of World Disney Worlds most expensive resorts for their annual fundraising dinner. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal was scheduled to be the keynote speaker. Just a few miles away, Democratic rival Charlie Crist campaigned and blasted Scott, saying he was a corporate governor who is more interested in helping out special interests, including insurance companies and utilities, that have aided the GOP and Scotts re-election campaign with campaign donations. Its not just about the 1 percent, Rick, its not just about your rich buddies, Crist said during a speech before the Florida Nurses Association. Scott has been harsh lately with his criticism of Crist, who was elected governor in 2006 as a Republican. Scott has insisted Crist is a slick politician who is too closely aligned to President Barack Obama. He has blamed Crist for tuition hikes and for raising fees and taxes while he was governor. The rising tide of negative comments from both sides is not surprising since Florida is a perennial swing state. Despite having a Republican governor, the states voters have backed Obama in the last two elections. Yet Democrats other than U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson have had trouble winning statewide elections during midterm elections, perhaps because turnout usually declines. Republicans, who said they had $18 million in the bank at the end of August, maintain that in a nonpresidential year they will have a better organization in place to inspire GOP voters to get to the polls. Since March, the state party, along with Scotts own political committee, has spent in excess of $30 million on television ads compared to roughly $10 million from Crists side. Many have been highly critical of Crist, including one ad that features a testimonial from a man who claims they were a victim of Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein and questions the friendship between Rothstein and Crist. The Republican Party has refused to identify the man or give any information to prove that the information in the ad is accurate. Crist maintained that turnout in November will be better than some are predicting for a midterm election. And he said that it may be due to the ads the Crist campaign is getting ready to release. The ads arent done, maybe they will inspire a little at the end, Crist said. Stay tuned. State GOP makes final push for Scott Associated PressGov.

On this date: In 1861, the first naval engagement of the Civil War took place as the USS Colorado attacked and sank the Confederate private schooner Judah off Pensacola, Florida. In 1901, President William McKinley died in Buffalo, New York, of gunshot wounds inflicted by an assassin; Vice President Theodore Roosevelt succeeded him. In 1944, the Great Atlantic Hurricane passed close to North Carolina and Virginia before heading up the northeastern U.S. coast; nearly 400 people died, most at sea. In 1964, Pope Paul VI opened the third session of the Second Ecumenical Council of the Vatican, also known as Vatican II. In 1975, Pope Paul VI declared Mother Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton the first U.S.-born saint.

The university also held a sing-along Friday, and the same day opened an exhibit on the national anthems cultural history. Events have been taking place across the state and country. Major festivities are happening in Baltimore, where Francis Scott Key wrote the lyrics on Sept. 14, 1814, during a pivotal War of 1812 battle.Pia Zadora badly hurt after golf cart fallLAS VEGAS Entertainer Pia Zadora has been hospitalized with serious head and leg injuries after a fall from a motorized golf cart driven by her teenage son near their northwest Las Vegas home. Zadoras husband, Mike Jeffries tells the Las Vegas Sun the singer-actress suffered a head injury and a compound ankle fracture in the Thursday evening accident. Shes recovering in intensive care at University Medical Center. Jeffries says Zadoras upcoming performances at Pieros Italian Restaurant in Las Vegas are canceled. Zadora was a child Broadway actress and appeared in movies before becoming a singer of popular standards. A Las Vegas judge last year ordered her to complete alcohol and impulse-control counseling after a domestic squabble involving spraying her teenage son with a hose to get him to go to bed.Simpsons toast 25 years with songs, starsLOS ANGELES Bart and Lisa Simpson, Chief Wiggum and son Ralph, bartender Moe and Apu from Kwik-E-Mart came to the Hollywood Bowl to celebrate 25 years of The Simpsons. Those characters are performed by three actors Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith and Hank Azaria who hosted the world premiere of The SimpsonsTake the Bowl at the legendary concert venue Friday. The program featured music, stars and reminiscences from TVs longest-running scripted show. The Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, which featured several members wearing tall, blue Marge Simpson wigs, performed as classic clips from the shows past 25 seasons played on big screens above them. The 26th season of The Simpsons begins Sept. 28. Oh yeah, The Simpsons will go on, long after the human race is gone, sang Weird Al Yankovic, who performed a little ditty about Homer and Marge to the tune of John Mellencamps Jack and Diane. At least 60 members of the Gay Mens Chorus of Los Angeles filled the stage for a soaring rendition of Spider Pig, the song Homer dedicated to his special pet pig in The Simpsons Movie. Then chorus members stripped off their robes to reveal sequined vests as they sang the Mr. Burns song about wearing puppy fur, See My Vest, which culminated with a Rockettesstyle kick line.

of a complaint unless there is a probable cause finding against the builder, Eagle said. It automatically extended the contractors license for two years after Gilbert paid a licensing fee and completed the required number of continuing-education hours, she said. Daniel Cramer, who also faced $25,000 in liens on a Pine Ridge home Gold Crest was building for him, was astounded to learn Gilberts license is good for another two years. I thought there would be no way possible that it would ever be renewed, Cramer wrote in an email to the Chronicle. Not only did he steal money from everyone involved, he delayed projects by years, and he did not correct any errors he made. Gilbert could not be reached for comment. Ironically, the phone number the DBPR has on file for him is disconnected.Customer: Contractor committed fraudGold Crest closed its Pine Ridge office shortly before the Chroniclefirst reported in April the cases of the Readys and Robert and Judi Meisel. The Readys, of Spring Hill, and the Meisels, of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, had each hired Gold Crest to build their retirement homes in Citrus County. Both couples, however, found themselves paying tens of thousands of dollars more on their homes, which were abandoned by Gold Crest owners Michael and Kathy Gilbert before they were finished. The couples received liens formal demands for payment from subcontractors and suppliers. Even though the Readys and Meisels paid Gold Crest for the work, Gilbert did not pay a host of subcontractors and building suppliers. Florida law places the burden of payment with the property owner, even though payment has already been received by the builder. To avoid foreclosure, the Readys said they paid about $40,000 in liens and the Meisels about $80,000. Plus, their homes were nowhere near completed when Gilbert closed the Gold Crest office on Pine Ridge Boulevard. State records show Gold Crest Homes Inc. still exists at the same address. However, Gilbert included a post office box number as the address on his renewed contractors license. In early April, Ready filed a complaint with the DBPR where he disclosed the liens, the fact that Gilbert had not worked on the house in three months, and that the contract required Gilbert to pay Ready $10,000 if the home was not completed on June1. He attached 49 pages of documents that, he said, proved Gilbert committed fraud and breach of contract. Ready said he had some communication by phone and email by the DBPR, and then was surprised to receive a letter on June26 from an attorney with DBPR saying the case was closed. The case is being closed because Mr. Gilbert has filed for bankruptcy, assistant general counsel Thomas Campbell wrote. After the bankruptcy is complete, the department may re-open the case if evidence warrants further review. Ready said the DBPR never said whether it investigated his allegations or found any of them true. And, he said, bankruptcy should have alerted state officials that the allegations had merit. The bankruptcy is just a confirmation that the money given to this contractor was misappropriated, Ready wrote to theChronicle.Eagle, the DBPR spokeswoman, said bankruptcy protection is a reason for closing a case where money or property is an issue. She noted she was not commenting on Gilbert specifically but agency investigations in general. Ready said he is unlikely to pursue allegations against Gilbert or Gold Crest with DBPR because it would require hiring an attorney. And suing Gilbert, he said, would lead nowhere because of the bankruptcy filing. Instead, he and his wife have decided to complete the home that Gilbert started in Crystal River. I am at a point that I just cannot afford to sink a lot of money in legal fees, especially if I already know the outcome in advance, he said. Basically, no matter which way I go, I lose.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.STATE\LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, SEPTEMBER14, 2014 A5 Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. The Villages Comfort Suites 1202 Avenida Central RESERVATIONS & INFORMATION: 1-888-685-1594 (toll free) www.LargoMedical.com Attend a FREE Seminar: KNEE PAIN? 000J6Z6 000J8N7 BUILDERContinued from Page A1 However, the association changed its mind and now wants it removed. Brock said he is unsure about the reasons for wanting it removed, but said he doesnt think its because of the cost of maintenance. You dont have to do much to it because it is vinyl, but I know there has been some vandalism. The fence is missing some panels and I dont know if people have been driving ATVs through the fence or just removing them, he said. Brock believes the association got tired of dealing with the vandalism, but now he is focused on trying to make good use of the fencing. Efforts to get comment from the property association were not successful. Brock said the county will work with the Department of Corrections to help with labor to remove the fencing and expects the cost of removal to be minimal. He said officials are entertaining suggestions about what to do with it once removed. One of the reuse ideas we are thinking about is to use it to conceal our wastewater lift stations, but, yes, we will welcome suggestions for other uses, Brock said. FENCINGContinued from Page A1 users, who can be state transportation departments, commercial fleet managers and individual drivers, among others. Costello said hed just returned from the 2014 World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) in Detroit. A new data source shown at the ITS event was the traffic camera feature launched earlier this year by Mercedes-Benz. You can find out whats the holdup ahead, Costello said. Live traffic snapshots will show traffic flow, accidents and weather conditions. Customers have access to almost 20,000 traffic cameras across the country. Were all responsible for a large network of roadways, Costello said, adding that the state of Florida contains more than 44,000 miles of roads. Theres now data coverage on those where are the problem areas, what was it like before, during and after a project? Asked if any state departments of transportation were adopting this toolset, Costello said, Absolutely. The states of Rhode Island, New Jersey, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Virginia, South Carolina and North Carolina. Certainly New Jersey is evaluating every one of their projects and doing a before-and-after study. They use that to form their capital program. Cities in the Northeast use the service to find solutions to congested corridors. There are a lot of states and DOTs and MPOs that are mainstreaming this for their performance improvement program, Costello said. As for the cost, Costello said, We would love to do a blanket license for all of Florida. An agency can share with other agencies. Likewise, multiple counties could also participate in a data-sharing agreement. As for costs, he said, In the Tampa Bay metropolitan area, its about 200 grand. Across the whole state, it would be over half a million (dollars) for every agency in the state. According to its website, the company has more than 200 customers and industry partners worldwide, including the Ford Motor Company, Map Quest, Microsoft, NAVIGON AG, TeleNav, I95 Corridor Coalition, Tele Atlas, deCarta, TCS and Telmap. On Friday, automobilemaker Porsche announced from Stuttgart that it had acquired about a 10percent stake in INRIX, motivated by its goal to transform from a traffic data company to a connected car and smart cities leader worldwide. Staff directors will report to their MPOs about Costellos presentation. TRAFFICContinued from Page A1 StateBRIEFS Law enforcement reviews diversityTAMPA Tampa Bay area law enforcement agencies are taking a hard look at the makeup of their forces in the wake of last months police shooting of unarmed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Most of the regions departments have far fewer black and Hispanic officers than the populations they serve, the Tampa Bay Times reported Saturday. Take the Tampa Police Department. The city is 46percent white, but at least 70percent of the departments force is. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office covers an area that is 55percent white, but white officers make up 70percent of its force. Tampa City Council member Frank Reddick recently requested a police diversity report following rumors of local protests in response to the Ferguson shooting. Brown was an 18-year-old unarmed man who was shot by a police officer. Brown was black, as is most of Ferguson. The officer was white, as is most of that citys police force. Tampa Bay area agencies said they are trying to bring in more minority officers. In Clearwater, police have created a detailed recruiting plan through which they have established connections with military bases in North Carolina and Kentucky. In Pinellas County, the sheriffs office created a council dedicated to minority affairs and hired a Hispanic recruiter. The force now closely mirrors the ethnicity and race of the populations it serves. Still, St. Petersburg Police Chief Tony Holloway, who is black, said recruiting minority officers is not easy. He said too few apply. There are a multitude of reasons, including lower high school graduation rates among minority youths and perceptions that the police forces are racist or worse. Experts say some fixes are easier than others. Putting questions related to an individuals race and ethnicity at the end of a law enforcement qualifying exam, rather than the beginning tends to improve the scores of minority applicants. Going to where minority applicants live, work and study, rather than waiting for them to apply, also helps. But as far as changing the image of law enforcement agencies in some minority communities, that will take more time and more community work, experts say. Activists demand manatee protectionST. PETERSBURG Environmentalists say the federal governments fast-track permitting process for Florida waterfront access means the already endangered manatee could be increasingly at risk. The Center for Biological Diversitys Florida office singled out the U.S Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Friday for not keeping track of how new watercraft permits for thousands of boat docks, piers and boat ramps are affecting the water mammals. The group has previously sued the federal government over endangered species, but declined to say whether it would do so this time. Boats killed a record 97manatees in Florida in 2009. That number declined to 73 last year. Federal officials have long promised to come up with a better management plan to monitor the impact of the growing number of docks.Walmart developer faces environmentalistsMIAMI The Palm Beach developer who wants to build a Walmart store on an area containing an endangered forest faced his opponents for the first time. Peter Cummings promised Thursday to make his project a model for environmentally sensitive development during a meeting of the Kendall Federation of Homeowners Associations. The Miami Herald reported Cummings told angry neighbors and environmentalists the four separate preserves planned for the 137-acre development could help scientists understand the disappearing Richmond pine rockland. Environmentalists said the planned 43-acre preserve, which would be divided four ways, doesnt do much. The store is slated for a corner of 2,200 acres near Miamis zoo. The area includes the largest remaining such forest outside Everglades National Park and is home to endangered bats and butterflies, among other species.Doral mayor: Miss Universe coming to South FloridaMIAMI Bring on the beauties. The Doral City Council is giving its stamp of approval to host the 2015 Miss Universe Pageant. On Friday, the council authorized a $2.5million stipend to host the event at the Trump National Doral Miami hotel. Mayor Luigi Boria said the beauty pageant will serve as an economic stimulator. Vice Mayor Christi Fraga cast the lone no vote of the four council members present. She said she supports hosting the event, but not using city funds for it. Boria said the city will provide $500,000, and private donors will later put up the rest. The Miss Universe pageant is owned by developer Donald Trump, whose name is also on the Doral hotel. NBC 6 South Florida reported that an official announcement is expected Tuesday. From wire reports

She married the late Everett Miller, where they both worked at General Motors for 31 dedicated years in Kokomo, Indiana. They retired and relocated to Homosassa, Florida, in 1985, where they lived until Everett passed away. The No Name Storm hit in 1993, where the home on the water flooded and she moved to a place in Beverly Hills to get away from being so close to the water. Evelyn met so many wonderful people throughout the years due to all of the extensive volunteer work she did. She always gave so much to everyone and rarely did anything for herself. Her well-known volunteer work was Meals on Wheels and scooping ice cream in the parlor at Life Care. Her past hobbies included clogging, volunteering, church, family and friends. We always said that she was a teenager at heart due to how she would stay up late at night watching David Letterman or Jay Leno then wake up early and be on the go all day long. Holidays she always cooked the meals and baked her well-known cookies, Chex mix, pumpkin bread and, ultimately, her famous mayonnaise cake. Evelyn is survived by Phyllis Hubbard of Greentown, Indiana; Mark Miller of Ocala; Kathy Miller of Beverly Hills; Linda Miller of Fort Wayne, Indiana; Ashley Fish of Lakeland; Kristen Miller of Jacksonville, North Carolina; Benjamin Newsom of Largo; Misti and Stormi Bousum of Hernando; Hayes Gray of Hernando; Chad Bousum of Watson, Texas; Devin Bousum of Unionville, Tennessee; Bailey Bousum of Columbus, Nebraska; Noelle Miller-Meagher of Fort Wayne, Indiana; Kyle and Casey Meagher of Fort Wayne, Indiana; Tiffany, Morgan and Regan Fridenmaker of West Lafayette, Indiana; Lisa, Kyleigh and Terianna Thomas of Fort Wayne, Indiana; and Brent, Caleb and Brock Miller of Shawano, Wisconsin.

salesman, said Glower, who was at that first meeting. He had me excited, but I didnt have any money. ... I thought it was probably a pie-in-the-sky type of thing. But I said, I think hes a very bright guy, and if anybody could find it, its him. And find it he did. It took an initial $12.7million from investors, a team of experts, competition from other treasure hunters, and the development of technology that allowed items to be retrieved unscathed from the deep ocean. Thompson described the moment, on Oct. 1, 1988, when he first gazed upon the gold. None of us ever thought that it would be so otherworldly in its splendor, he wrote in Americas Lost Treasure, a companion to Kinders book. Part of our American heritage, this was history in the form of a national treasure. And we had found it. His joy faded fast. Thirtynine insurance companies sued Thompson, claiming they had insured the gold in 1857. The treasure, they argued, belonged to them. For years, the court battle raged. In 1996, Thompsons company was awarded 92percent of the treasure, and the rest was divided among some of the insurers. Investors thought theyd finally see returns, too, but Thompson held them off, saying the gold had to be marketed just so. Finally in 2000, Thompsons company sold 532gold bars and thousands of coins to the California Gold Marketing Group for about $50million. But by 2005, Thompsons 161investors still hadnt been paid. Two sued a now-deceased investment firm president who put in some $250,000 and the Dispatch Printing Company, which publishes The Columbus Dispatchnewspaper and had invested about $1million. The following year, nine members of Thompsons crew also sued him, saying they also had been promised some proceeds. A new legal mess had begun. Thompsons personal life had suffered, as well. His father died months after he found the gold. And his obsession with the treasure contributed to his divorce in 1991, friends and family said. In 2006, Thompson went into seclusion, moving into a mansion called Gracewood in Vero Beach, Florida. He grew increasingly reclusive, and his behavior turned bizarre. Thompson refused to use his real name on his utility bills, telling realtor Vance Brinkerhoff that his life had been threatened and asking him, How would you like to live like that? Brinkerhoff recounted the exchange in a court deposition in the crew members lawsuit. Brinkerhoff said Thompson paid his $3,000 monthly rent in moldy $100bills. Because he didnt want Brinkerhoff coming to the house, Thompson insisted on meeting elsewhere. Once, when Brinkerhoff did go to the property, he found Thompson apparently living in a van outside. He shared with me that he contracted some kind of skin disease on some kind of a safari trip ... and he was very sensitive to different kinds of materials, Brinkerhoff said in court documents. In another deposition, maintenance worker James Kennedy recounted once going to the house to ask Thompson about rent and seeing him on the pool deck wearing only socks, shoes and dirty underwear. His hair was all crazy, Kennedy said. After that, me and (a friend) referred to him as the crazy professor because it just fit. All the while, the legal battles slogged on. Gil Kirk, who heads a Columbus real estate firm and is a former director of one of Thompsons companies, said he put $1.8million into the treasure hunt.He hasnt gotten any of that back, but he remains a supporter of Thompson and insists he never bilked anyone. Kirk said proceeds from the 2000 sale all went to legal fees and bank loans. He was a genius, and theyve stolen his life, Kirk said of those who sued. Steven Tigges, attorney for the Dispatch company and the other investorplaintiff, did not respond to requests for comment, nor did a number of the investors. The crew members lawyer, Mike Szolosi, asserted that hes seen records indicating Thompson took 500 gold restrike coins worth $2million and took potentiallymillions from his own company on top of his approved compensation. Presumably all of that is still somewhere with Tommy, Szolosi said. Attorney Rick Roble defended Thompsons company from the 1980s until he withdrew from the case last month. He maintains there is no proof that Thompson stole any money or gold. If he did take money, Roble said, where is the evidence of that? Its not clear exactly when Thompson disappeared. On Aug.13, 2012, he failed to appear at a court hearing, and a federal judge found him in contempt and issued an arrest warrant. At the hearing, Thompson attorney Shawn Organ told the judge his client was at sea and didnt know he was supposed to be in court. An arrest warrant also was soon issued for Thompsons assistant, Alison Anteiker, who also failed to appear in court and whom the Marshals agents believe is with Thompson. Not long after Thompson vanished, Kennedy returned to the Florida mansion and found it in a shambles cabinets falling off walls, rats running around. Pre-paid disposable cellphones and bank wraps for $10,000 bills were scattered about, along with a bank statement in the name of Harvey Thompson showing a $1million balance, Kennedy said in court records. Harvey, according to friends, was Thompsons nickname in college. Also found was a book called How to Live Your Life Invisible. One marked page was titled: Live your life on a cash-only basis. Then Kennedy spotted a copy of Kinders Ship of Gold and looked Thompson up on the Internet, discovering that he was a fugitive. He called the Marshals Service. As the hunt for Thompson and the court fights go on, so does the new expedition to the SS Central America. Since April, Floridabased Odyssey Marine Exploration has brought up millions of dollars in gold and silver bars and coins from the shipwreck. That work will continue indefinitely, an Odyssey spokeswoman said. The operation is being directed by Ira Kane, a court-appointed receiver over two of Thompsons companies. Kane will get more than 50percent of the recovered treasure, to be disbursed in part to Thompsons investors. Remember, only 5percent of this ship was excavated, Kane told The Associated Press in March. As to where Thompson, now 62, and his assistant might be, theories abound. Szolosi, the crew members attorney, suspects hes holed up in a safe house somewhere. Kinder, the author, said nothing in his time with Thompson gives him any insight. I dont know what it would entail to hide like that. Get your teeth fixed? Buy a blond wig? Do you fake a passport and go to Bolivia or something? I have no idea. Agent Fleming believes Thompson is likely still stateside, but because of his sailing experience, We definitely never rule out the fact that he may be abroad or at sea. If caught, Thompson would be asked to account for the missing coins and explain where proceeds from the treasures sale and other deals have gone. If he refuses, he could be jailed and face hefty fines. Thompsons family he has three grown children, three siblings and a 93-yearold mother just hope he is enjoying being free, said Milt Butterworth, his brother-in-law. The sadness for me is that I dont have him and the family doesnt have him, but the happiness for me is that he doesnt have to worry about this anymore. As for Kirk, Thompsons friend, the treasure hunter remains an American hero, like the Wright brothers, he said. Theres no telling what he would have done by now. The tragedy, as he sees it, is that Thompsons dream became his doom. Tommy used the word, whats the word? Kirk said. Plague of the gold.

Tony KidmanPSYCHOLOGISTSINGAPORE Actress Nicole Kidmans father, psychologist Tony Kidman, has died in Singapore, authorities said. Tan Tock Seng Hospital said Kidman was brought there Friday, but would not release any further details. The University of Technology in Sydney, where Kidman worked as a researcher and practitioner for 43 years, confirmed his death. He reportedly was in Singapore to visit his other daughter, Antonia, and her family. Singapore police did not identify him by name, but said in a statement that a man in his 80s was taken to the hospital and was pronounced dead.

Rains said Sample was a seminal figure in the transition from acoustic to electronic music in the jazz field in the late s and early s with his band, which later called itself The Crusaders. The group became a successful crossover act with such hits as the 1979 single and album Street Life. His songs were also sampled by hip-hop artists, including Tupac Shakur, who used Samples In All My Wildest Dreams on his Dear Mama. Leland Moore, 75Leland A.

JESSEWASHINGTON AP national writerWe only respond if theres video. Thats one lesson that can be drawn from the belated reaction to football player Ray Rice knocking out his fiance in an elevator. Rice was arrested back in February, and in July was suspended for two games. But once video of the actual punch surfaced this week, he was banned indefinitely. Time and again, we are informed of outrages Rices domestic violence; beheadings and rape by the fanatics calling themselves the Islamic State; Donald Sterlings racism; abuse of prisoners at Abu Ghraib but only grow outraged and force action when video or audio or images emerge. How many injustices get short shrift because nobodys recorder was rolling? Its frustrating, said Valenda Campbell, who is in charge of creating video and photo images for CARE, one of the worlds largest humanitarian organizations. Campbell and her colleagues at Atlanta-based CARE call it the CNN effect: when TV cameras arrive at a crisis, donations start pouring in. We have a responsibility to help one another. Every day we see these emergencies, and nobody seems to be aware of them, said Campbell, whose organization is now responding to humanitarian crises in South Sudan, Syria, the Central African Republic and Gaza. She has learned to work within this reality. Her job as senior manager for marketing and creative services is to document images of disaster and injustice and the healing that follows which help generate the funds CARE needs to provide assistance. It always goes back to the old adage that seeing is believing, Campbell said. We are visual beings, and more and more this is a visual culture, she continued. Seeing things provides more information and puts a human face on whatever the situation is, and helps people relate on a much more personal level to whats going on. In the Rice case, video was released Feb.19 of the Baltimore Ravens running back dragging his unconscious fiance, Janay Palmer, out of a casino elevator, after what police described as an altercation. Rice, who married Palmer the following month, was charged with assault, which carried a penalty of up to five years behind bars. Charges were later dropped when Rice entered a pretrial intervention program. The NFL suspended him for two games, there was widespread criticism of the penalty as too light and we moved on. Then TMZ.com released video from inside the elevator, of the knockout punch itself. There was an enormous uproar. The NFL suspended Rice and the Baltimore Ravens cut him from the team. Many predict he may never play in the NFL again. We saw video, and then we demanded justice, sports broadcaster Dan Patrick said on his program. Until you have that video, its Oh, really, that happened? Patrick said. A similar dynamic was recently evident concerning the Islamic State group, whose crimes were well documented yet provoked little international action until two videos were released of American journalists being decapitated. On Wednesday, President Barack Obama announced a military response that includes U.S. missile strikes and ground troops from other nations. It is very, very scary that we could go to war over two videos, said Robert Thompson, a professor of popular culture at Syracuse University. Words are abstractions, and pictures are a presentation of the thing itself, he said. On some level, we are probably wired to be much more responsive to something we see. Which can be a good thing, Thompson said, citing images that turned the course of Americas involvement in the Vietnam War and the 1960s civil rights movement Vietnam photos of an execution and a fleeing girl, her clothes burnt off by napalm, or film of black protesters being battered by fire hoses and bitten by dogs. There are stories that command attention without sensational video, such as Edward Snowdens leaked documents. There is national outrage over the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, though there is no video of the fatal shots. And when there is video, it can be interpreted in different ways, such as the Rodney King police beating tape. But television is the most popular way people get their news, followed by computers, according to a 2014 study by the Media Insight Project. On television, news can be elevated or ignored depending on how dramatic the video is regardless of whether or not the news itself is important. The exploding online culture, with its insatiable thirst for clicks, has magnified the value placed on images that hit an emotional nerve. The Rice video was in some ways the smoking gun, said Todd Boyd, a scholar of popular culture at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. Before the recording emerged of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling making racist remarks, Boyd had been blogging for 10 years about widely reported evidence of Sterlings racist behavior in his real estate business. Sterling settled a housing discrimination case with the government, but few protests were raised until the recording came out. A lot of these recordings, Donald Sterling, Ray Rice, in some ways its like evidence in a courtroom, Boyd said As citizens, were in the digital age now, so things are different. In previous generations, we didnt necessarily have access to this type of private information. Now there is so much available to the public, and we treat it like evidence. He said that people now expect to see some sort of evidence connected to a news story. This has become part of the experience, Boyd said. Wheres the tape?

Associated PressRusty races towards the finish line of the first heat of wiener dog races on Saturday at the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. Saratoga arrives in Texas to be scrappedBROWNSVILLE, Texas The decommissioned aircraft carrier USS Saratoga has arrived at its final destination in South Texas, where it will be scrapped. The Saratoga on Friday reached the Esco Marine ship recycling plant in Brownsville. The Navy is paying Esco Marine a penny to dispose of the Saratoga. It plans to make money by selling what it recovers from the ship. The vessel was commissioned in 1956 and completed 22 deployments before it was decommissioned in 1994. It was off the coast of Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis, off Vietnam during the Vietnam War and in the Persian Gulf during the first Iraq War.Ferguson video reveals new detailST. LOUIS Cellphone video that shows a witness raising his hands in the air immediately after the fatal shooting of a black 18-yearold by a white police officer in Ferguson appears to support previous accounts and could bolster arguments Michael Brown was surrendering when he was shot, legal experts said Friday. The video obtained by The Associated Press and first aired by CNN shows two landscapers who were working near the street where Brown was shot by officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9. In the video, a man can be heard saying, He had his (expletive) hands up, while one of the workers raises his own hands in the air. The man who took the cellphone video, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he feared for his safety, said the voice is that of the worker raising his hands, but that isnt clear on the video. The workers are not from Ferguson and were employed by a business from Jefferson County, south of St. Louis. They have not come forward publicly and the AP has been unable to reach them.County struggles with stinky buildingALAMOGORDO, N.M. A county government building in southern New Mexico stinks. And the Alamogordo Daily News reported that Otero County officials are deciding whether to relocate staff that can no longer put up with the putrid smell in the Administration Annex Buildings basement. Commissioner Ronny Rardin said Thursday hes worried about the staff since the offending scent is permeating the buildings substructure. He said the odor has been around since the county first moved into the building in 2008. Officials say the cause of the recurring smell is unclear. Otero County Assessor Donald Yee, who works in the building, said efforts to get rid of the stench have been unsuccessful. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS Smart art Associated PressAnett Taut works on her margarine Einstein sculpture on Saturday at the culinary art fair Inoga in Erfurt, central Germany. Video shows slaying of British aid workerBEIRUT Islamic State extremists released a video showing the beheading of British aid worker David Haines, who was abducted in Syria last year, and British Prime Minister David Cameron late Saturday condemned his slaying as an act of pure evil. Cameron confirmed Haines death in a statement posted on his official Twitter account after the British Foreign Office had said earlier that it was working urgently to verify the video. Haines is the third Westerner beheaded in recent weeks by the Islamic State group. Cameron is expected to chair a meeting of the governments emergency response committee early Sunday. Islamic State militants recently beheaded two American journalists, James Foley and Steven Sotloff, and posted the videos online after the U.S. began launchingairstrikes and humanitarian missions in August to aid waning Iraqi and Kurdish security forces in northern Iraq. The Islamic State group has also put out videos showing the beheading of Kurdish and Lebanese soldiers and the mass shooting of dozens of captured Syrian soldiers. At the end of the video showing the beheading of Sotloff, the Islamic State group threatened to kill Haines next and briefly showed him on camera. In the video showing Haines slaying, the group threatened to kill another British captive. The video was entitled A Message to the Allies of America. Haines killer, who appeared to be the same masked man speaking with a British accent and brandishinga knife as in the previous videos, tells the British government that its alliance with the U.S. will only accelerate your destruction and will drag the British people into another bloody and unwinnable war. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressRussian trucks, with Russian flags, carrying humanitarian aid for eastern Ukraine, are driven toward a border checkpoint Saturday in the town of Donetsk, Rostov-on-Don region, Russia. The second convoy of Russian trucks is reportedly filled with almost 2,000 tons of humanitarian aid. The sign at right reads Russia. Associated PressWASHINGTON While the Islamic State group is getting the most attention now, another band of extremists in Syria a mix of hardened jihadis from Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria and Europe poses a more direct and imminent threat to the United States, working with Yemeni bombmakers to target U.S. aviation, American officials say. At the center is a cell known as the Khorasan group, a cadre of veteran al-Qaida fighters from Afghanistan and Pakistan who traveled to Syria to link up with the al-Qaida affiliate there, the Nusra Front. But the Khorasan militants did not go to Syria principally to fight the government of President Bashar Assad, U.S. officials say. Instead, they were sent by al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri to recruit Europeans and Americans whose passports allow them to board a U.S.-bound airliner with less scrutiny from security officials. In addition, according to classified U.S. intelligence assessments, the Khorasan militants have been working with bomb-makers from al-Qaidas Yemen affiliate to test new ways to slip explosives past airport security. The Obama administration has said the Islamic State group, the target of more than 150 U.S. airstrikes in recent weeks, does not pose an imminent threat to the continental U.S. The Khorasan group, which has not been subject to American military action, is considered the more immediate threat. The Khorasan groups plotting with al-Qaidas Yemen affiliate shows that, despite the damage that years of drone missile strikes has done to the leadership of core al-Qaida in Pakistan, the movement still can threaten the West. It has been rejuvenated in the past year as al-Qaida offshoots have grown in strength and numbers, bolstered by a flood of Western extremists to a new terrorist safe haven created by Syrias civil war. That Yemen affiliate, alQaida in the Arabian Peninsula has been able to place three bombs on U.S.bound airliners, though none has succeeded in downing the aircraft. James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, first disclosed during a Senate hearing in January that a group of core al-Qaida militants from Afghanistan and Pakistan was plotting attacks against the West in Syria. But the groups name, Khorasan, or its links to alQaidas Yemen affiliate, which is considered the most dangerous terrorist threat to the U.S., have not previously been disclosed. Khorasan refers to a province under the Islamic caliphate, or religious empire, of old that included parts of Afghanistan. Many U.S. officials interviewed for this story would not be quoted talking about what they said was highly classified intelligence. The CIA refused to confirm the groups name or any details in this story. Associated PressPresident Barack Obama makes a statement to reporters Oct. 29, 2010, about the suspicious packages found on U.S.-bound planes. While the Islamic State group is getting the most attention these days, another band of extremists in Syria, a mix of hardened Jihadis from Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria and Europe, poses a more direct threat. Officials: ISIS may not be biggest threat to U.S. Associated PressLUHANSK, UkraineAconvoy of more than 200 white trucks crossed the Russian border to deliver humanitarian aid to a battered Ukrainian city on Saturday, a move made without Kievs consent yet met with silence by Ukraines top leaders. Early in the morning, we entered Ukraine to bring aid to Luhansk, said Yury Stepanov, a Russian who was overseeing the convoy. We came in around 215 vehicles, he added, as workers unloaded boxes into a local warehouse. The much-needed aid arrived as fighting flared again between pro-Russian rebels and government forces, further imperiling an already fragile cease-fire in the region. On Saturday, Ukraines military operation in the east said it had repelled a rebel attack on the government-held airport of Donetsk, which came under artillery fire from rebel positions late on Friday. Ukrainian authorities also admitted for the first time since the cease-fire started last week that they have inflicted casualties on the rebel side. Continuous rocket fire could be heard overnight in Donetsk. A statement on the city council website said that shells hit residential buildings near the airport, although no casualties were reported. A column of three Grad rocket launchers all its rockets still in place was seen moving freely through the rebel-held city on Saturday morning. In the other regional capital of Luhansk, one of the worst-hit cities where tens of thousands have been without water, electricity, or phone connections for weeks, the streets were calm as Russian drivers unloaded aid packages into local warehouses. Stepanov said the goods consisted mainly of foodstuffs rice, sugar, and canned fish and beef but also included medicine, technical equipment and clothes. The deliveries were in closed boxes, small enough to be easily carried by one person, but rice was seen spilling from a broken bag. Inside the warehouse, an Associated Press journalist saw water bottles carrying the logo of Russias LDPR party, led by virulent nationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky. While dozens of local workers unloaded boxes, several carloads of armed militiamen in camouflage arrived to inspect the scene. Stepanov said his team was responsible only for delivery, and distribution will be handled by local authorities which for now means the separatist leaders of the self-proclaimed Luhansk Peoples Republic. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europes observer mission to the RussianUkrainian border said Saturday that 220 trucks crossed into Ukraine, none of which were inspected by the Ukrainian side or accompanied by the ICRC. We were not officially notified of an agreement between Moscow and Kiev to ship the cargo, said Galina Balzamova, a representative of the ICRCs Moscow office. Associated PressBLOOMING GROVE, Pa. A late-night ambush outside a state police barracks in Pennsylvanias rural northeastern corner left one trooper dead and another critically wounded, and authorities scoured the densely wooded countryside and beyond on Saturday looking for the shooter or shooters. State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan said a very dangerous, armed criminal eluded quick capture. This attack was an ambush. Our troopers were ... shot without warning and really had no chance to defend themselves, Noonan told reporters Saturday afternoon. Its a cowardly attack. Its an attack upon all of us in society. The dead lawman was identified as Cpl. Bryon Dickson of Dunmore, a seven-year veteran who had transferred to the region from the Philadelphia barracks several months ago. Trooper Alex Douglass underwent surgery and was in critical but stable condition, Noonan said. He provided few details on the shooting but said the attack was directed at state police. Law enforcement installations throughouteastern Pennsylvania were put on high alert. The slain trooper was married with two young sons. He was described by friends as devoted to work and family. Police interviewed a man they called a person of interest, but Noonan said authorities are talking to hundreds of people as part of the investigation. He said the man is not a suspect. The troopers were ambushed around 10:50 p.m. Friday as one of them was leaving the barracks in Blooming Grove, Pike County, and another was arriving. The barracks is in a wooded area, surrounded by state game lands. Law enforcement officials from across the region descended on the Pocono Mountains to help with the search on foot and by helicopter.

A12SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER14, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: This is in response to A Fan of Your Work, the woman who wrote that her 5-year-old son sees spirits of dead relatives. I agree that he should be checked out medically for any physical or neurological cause, but I do not think it should end there. The fact that he is able to describe people who died before he was born sounds as if he may be one of the rare individuals with the gift of second sight. At least half of the population believes in life after death. Im surprised that ministers would be so quick to dismiss this. If the boy is given a clean bill of health, I would suggest his mother seek the advice of a paranormal research department in a nearby university. Believer in N.J. Dear Believer: It is not uncommon for young children to see things. Most outgrow this by puberty. While we appreciate our readers offers to take the boy to their favorite medium, we were surprised by how many were confused by our suggestion of a neurological exam. One of the symptoms of a brain tumor is hallucinations. It would be irresponsible of us not to make sure the boy is completely healthy before assuming its nothing to worry about. Then, the parents can determine how to proceed. Dear Annie: There is one subject in your column that always gets me: people who complain that they dont get thank-you notes. Well, boohoo. While I agree that saying thank you is appropriate, I dont agree that you should expect it. If I give a gift, I do so out of the kindness of my heart. If the receiver says thank you, great. Ill say, Youre welcome. If they dont, oh, well, Im still happy for the opportunity to give Happy Giver Dear Happy: You sound very kind. But its not always so simple. If you mail a gift or have one sent from a store, wouldnt you like to know that it was received? It is a simple courtesy to let the giver know that a present has arrived and was appreciated. We just dont think such courtesy should be discouraged.

U.S. Marine Corps Photos by Sgt. Frances JohnsonCpl. Alex Roberts, a turret gunner and weapons noncommissioned officer with Combat Logistics Battalion 7, makes final adjustments to his M240B machine gun in the turret of his Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle aboard Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan. Roberts, a native of Dunnellon, and his fellow turret gunners acted as the eyes and ears while being the guardian angels of each combat logistics patrol conducted during their deployment. Dunnellon native returns from Afghanistan JEFFBRYAN Riverland NewsThursday, the United States, if not the world, took time to remember the events of Sept. 11, 2001. Thursday, Alex Roberts planned to spend time with his 3-1/2-year-old son, family and friends, and enjoy a portion of his day on the Rainbow River. Whatever he opted to do, it was certainly a far cry from what he has done the past seven months.You see, for the better portion of the year, Alex Roberts wasnt spending his time on the river, or nearby lakes casting a line, nor was he on the beaten path riding four-wheelers, as he enjoys doing. No, Roberts was instead climbing inside an armored vehicle, onto the steps of a gun turret, his head peering over the top while serving as the eyes and ears of combat logistics patrols conducted by CLB-7 while deployed at Camp Bastion, Helmand province, Afghanistan. It was definitely different; you go through mixed emotions, said Roberts, a corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps. You just want to be up there and you dont want to do any less than the man before you. It was definitely something different. It was definitely interesting. Youre lying if you dont say youre not scared. Roberts, a 2011 Dunnellon High graduate, has been in the Marines for more than two years, but serving his country wasnt at the forefront of his mind throughout his senior year in high school. The birth of his son changed his mindset of going off to college to play baseball. I was thinking about more than myself, he said about one of his reasons for joining one of the many branches of the U.S. armed forces. The stability is there, its a good job, provides the benefits you need to provide for your family. I was going to join the Navy first, but the traditions of the Marines really impressed me. They really enforce a lot of the basics in your training. While his job in the Marine Corps isnt technically that of a gunner, it was a role he was required to serve during his tour in the Helmand province. Roberts descried the experience as eye-opening, from helping provide security for the convoys to experiencing the culture firsthand. Taking fire from the enemy happened a couple of times, said the 21year-old Roberts. Thankfully, no one from our unit or our platoon was injured. Roberts credited modern-day technology with being a tremendous asset. It helps us from using excessive force or measures, he said. The emotions of patrols and being away from home run the gamut, Roberts said. You definitely have mixed emotions, especially in front of your boys, who youve been living together with for seven months and been together with for two years, Roberts explained. Youve got to drain yourself, and you have to do whatever it takes for you to do it. If it helps you unwind, whether it was talking to family or friends back home. His routine was simple during his deployment, Roberts said. Youd wake up, go to the gym and then go to work. All you have is the gym, chow hall and Wifi when you got it, he said. Being able to have access to the Internet was definitely a moral boost when it was sorely needed. Seeing the support and encouragement they showed me was tremendous. It was just to go have that. Its crazy how many people care about you when you dont think they do. You feed off that support. It motivates you. During his deployment, Roberts said he and other members of his unit were able to witness much of the culture of the people of the region, including their religious beliefs. You have to experience being more than a soldier, because theres so much more to being there, Roberts said. You see the culture, what their religion is like. And, Roberts said, most of the people there are very appreciative of the efforts of the U.S. military. We had a lot of little kids who would wave at us, he added. They would come up to the trucks, curious, for the most part, to see what they were like. They are happy we came out and helped to rebuild their communities. We helped the area rebuild their military, too. It takes a toll on everyone out there. They know were not bad people. Weve been, from my point of view, there to help them out in many ways. Since enlisting and having served a tour overseas, Roberts believes hes matured well beyond his age of 21. Definitely, as a man, as a father and as a brother, he said. I feel I definitely got my head on my shoulders right. Cpl.

Youre going to hear negative feedback, but you dwell on the positive, he said. Theyre not in your boots, not in the line of fire. They dont know what youre going through. Honestly, you cant justify your beliefs if you havent even been through what I, or many others, have been through. Since his return to the states, Roberts said hes gained a renewed sense of appreciation for the freedoms Americans have. His first weekend back, he and several other members from his unit traveled to Palm Springs and went to a mall. Oh yeah, it was crazy, he said, noting it felt awkward not having to be on a heightened sense of alert. It feels like you just literally closed your eyes in Janurary and woke up in August. It doesnt even feel like I was there. You never want to complain, because you see how other people have it and theyre not complaining. These folks have it way, way harder. While he still has more than a year before his contract with the Marines expires, Roberts said hes already weighing his options, which include re-enlisting. Its always a possibility; I love what I do, he said. At the same time, I want to keep my eyes open. I would probably re-enlist, but Im also looking at other options.

Its history is steeped in the heritage of Greek immigrants who came to the city starting in the 1880s. The immigrants worked diving for sponges, which are still harvested and sold there today. Tourists enjoy shopping in the citys Sponge Docks District, and the area is famous for its traditional Greek restaurants. Tourists also frequent the city during its many festivals, several of them foodrelated. Upcoming events include Ocktoberfest next month, the Tarpon Springs Seafood Festival in November and the Chili & Chowder Festival in December. If you visit in January, plan to be there for the towns annual Epiphany celebration, which is celebrated by Orthodox Christians across the world and marks the baptism of Jesus Christ. The event draws tens of thousands of visitors to tarpon springs each Jan. 6. As part of the celebration, boys and young men age 16 to 18 dive into the Spring Bayou to retrieve a wooden cross. The tradition has been going strong there for more than a century, and visitors come to enjoy the festivities surrounding the event. Distance from Crystal River: 57 miles Info: www.spongedocks.net Day 32Day 32 finds us still cruising north through the Tasmanian Sea and looking forward to the scrap heap challenge race at 11:15 a.m. I sneak away for an hour to sit in on John Maxton Grahams lecture the Prince of Wales. The boat race is rescheduled to 5 p.m. due to heavy rain. (I found it ironic that we spent all this time building a seaworthy boat, only to have the race postponed due to rain). We went through our usual routine throughout the day until race time. Our boat successfully crosses the pool carrying a six pack of beer, only to be bested by another boat.Day 33Day 33 finds us still cruising north through the Tasmanian Sea. I am beginning to comprehend how much water is on the planet Earth. It seems never to end. I attend Capt. Les Evans lecture titled Disaster at Paris. He takes us through a very precise timeline of all of the events that led up to the fatal crash in 2000, which essentially killed the Concorde. In simple terms, a piece of metal fell off the plane that had taken off before the Concorde. The metal landed on the runway undetected and the Concorde ran over it at takeoff. The piece of metal was thrown into and pierced a gas tank, which started a fire and the plane eventually crashed. That was the final flight of the Concorde. We spent the rest of the day as we normally do attending lectures, playing games, visiting people and eating. Next up: Burnie, Tasmania.Peter Graulich first left the country in 1961 for six weeks, travelling Europe and the United Kingdom with his family, returning on the S.S. United States. He has since gathered more than 300 days of cruising with Princess Cruises. Since then, he has visited 97 countries, every state in the United States and every national park. Peter and his wife, Leslye, both originally from New Jersey, came to Florida after he retired from the Camden, New Jersey, police department and she retired as the office manager for a urology practice in Philadelphia. They live in Celina Hills, Inverness, 3 miles from Petes best friend from high school. As I write this article, our 20th annual Bike Ride is just three weeks away on Sunday, Oct. 5. The date to pre-register and be eligible for door prizes, has passed; however, you can go online at railstotrails online.com and register. Pay Pal is available as a way of paying the entry fee. Another option is to walk up on the day of the ride, sign up and pay there; however, there is no guarantee of a requested-size T-shirt. The earlier you sign up is the best way to go. This bike ride is a fun day for the entire family. Dont forget to bring the sunscreen. We can always use another volunteer on that day, so if you are interested, please give me a call at 352-527-3263 and we will find a job for you. One hundred percent of the proceeds of this bike ride, like all of those funds received in previous years, will go back into the betterment, new items on the trail, maintenance and improvement of the trail. Air potato vines As a follow-up to my recent article a few months ago on the invasive potato vines, Park Service employees have released 300 air potato leaf beetles on the trail. The Asian beetles, received from the Florida Department of Agriculture in Gainesville, lay their eggs on young leaves of the exotic, invasive air potato vine. When the larva hatches, they will skeletonize the large, heart-shaped leaves. This will never kill all of the vines, but will help along with herbicides to control the plant. We will see some results the first year, but as the beetle reproduces, expect to see more reduction in the plant. Extensive testing by the USDA demonstrated that the beetle will not complete its life cycle on any plant except the air potato vine. For additional information about the beetle and the vines, go to: http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/ Creatures/BENEFICIAL/BEETLES/air_ potato_leaf_beetle.htm. Time will really tell how it works, but studies show that it has been successful. Sprucing up An existing eyesore on the trail has been taken care of by the trail volunteers. I am speaking of the area where the trail runs under the U.S. 41 bridge (just north of the KMart/Sears Store in Inverness). The only thing necessary to remove graffiti, dirt, mold, etc., was to clean with a good cleaner, then use an undercoat of paint and finish with a coat of light brown paint. This location is the property of the state and since they did not have the money to make the changes, we got permission to do it at no cost to the state. We purchased sealer and paint and our great volunteers got the job done. This is another example of how our annual bike ride helps maintain the trail. Unfortunately, we were unable to reach the high areas; however, the portion attended to looks great. Our Wednesday work crew, with Don Z at the helm, went to the exercise area recently, just south of the Apopka Trailhead, to pick up branches, moss and trim low-hanging trees. They chipped them and then spread them around the areas that needed mulching. This area is used by a lot of trail people on a daily basis. Once again, I would like to thank you for your comments about the trail. You can reach me at 352-527-3263. The next Rails to Trails membership meeting will be at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 18, at the Lakes Region Library. Everyone is welcome. And, dont forget the bike ride on Oct. 5!

In the girls race, Pirate frosh Jillian Felton placed runner-up in 20:32.70 in the 58-runner field to NCT junior Amelia Schmits school record 20:15.81 clocking. Springstead snapped a 36-meet non-winning skein dating back to 2009 by finishing with 38 points followed by Mitchell (64), Crystal River (70), Lecanto-Seven Rivers Christian (93), Weeki Wachee (121), Brooksville-Hernando (137) and Inverness-Citrus (160). Veteran Pirate mentor Tim Byrne was upbeat following his teams 5K performances. The kids all did well, explained Byrne. All of my kids ran better this week than they did last week (at Lecanto). Were working on our No. 2 to be more aggressive in the middle of the race. We did pretty well even though our No. 4 was with family in Georgia, added Byrne. Both of these teams are extremely young. Hopefully, we can make a little noise next week at home. I felt pretty good today, described the 14-yearold Felton. I think I was strong along my first two miles, but I slowed down during the last mile. I really enjoyed the course, added Felton. I cut over 30 seconds from last weeks time. I want to do even better next week and break 20 minutes. Seven Rivers was paced by junior Paige Eckarts seventh-place time of 23:19.13. Today was a much easier course than last week (at Lecanto), noted the 15-year-old Eckart. I really pushed myself, especially along the last mile. Im very happy getting a PR (personal record) today. On the boys side, Crystal River sophomore Caleb Russo was the countys leading finisher, placing sixth in 18:43.70.

LEFT: The top finisher for the Crystal River boys Caleb Russo who finished sixth. Associated PressTAMPA When Jeff Fisher describes Lovie Smith-coached teams, one of the first things he mentions is their ability to impact games by causing turnovers. Their defense is always going to be very, very aggressive, the St. Louis Rams coach said. Theyre going to find ways to get the ball back. Indeed, thats an attitude Smith is trying to instill in his effort to transform the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers into winners. In nine seasons as coach of the Chicago Bears from 2004 to 2012, Smiths defenses led the NFL with 310 takeaways. They returned 34 of those turnovers for touchdowns, including 26 interceptions tied the most in the league during that stretch. The new coach of the Bucs understandably was disappointed when Tampa Bay turned the ball over three times and didnt generate any takeaways in a 20-14 season-opening loss to Carolina last week. Offseason free agent acquisition Josh McCown threw two interceptions, doubling his total for all of last season, when he was a part-time starter in Chicago. The Bucs (0-1) also fumbled in the closing minutes after trimming a 17-point deficit to three, then getting the ball back only needing a field goal to tie or TD to possibly win. That was out of character to say the least. Josh will tell you that. Hes a veteran player. He knows how important it is, to not turn the ball over, Smith said. Every meeting Ive had with our football team since Ive been the head coach here, Ive talked about the turnover ratio ... and how important is.

Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolinas maligned defense stood strong on a fourth-quarter goal line stand to topple No. 6 Georgia 38-35 on Saturday night. The Bulldogs (1-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) had a firstand-goal on the Gamecocks 4 down three points with 5:24 remaining. But Hutson Mason was called for intentional grounding to set Georgia back and the usually reliable Marshall Morgan missed a 28-yard field goal. Todd Gurley ran for 131 yards and a touchdown, yet the Gamecocks (2-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) kept the Bulldogs star from making a bigger impact. The victory was South Carolina coach Steve Spurriers 201st as a SEC coach, tying him for second all-time with Georgia great Vince Dooley. It put the Gamecocks back in the SEC East race.No. 2Oregon48, Wyoming 14EUGENE, Ore. Quarterback Marcus Mariota passed for 221 yards and two touchdowns and ran for two more scores and No. 2Oregonsurvived a slow start Saturday to beat Wyoming 48-14.

Most of Sims completions went to the nations leading receiver, Amari Cooper. Cooper had eight catches for 135 yards and a touchdown to tie DJ Halls school record of five consecutive 100-yard games set in 2006. Kenyan Drake scored three touchdowns and produced 59 yards on nine rushes. Sims also ran five times for 46 yards, including a 4-yard touchdown.

Receiver Travin Dural had 79 yards on six catches for the Tigers. Gamecocks upset Bulldogs 38-35 in key conference matchup Associated PressCHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. Greyson Lambert threw for one touchdown and ran for another and Ian Frye kicked a 42-yard field goal with 3:41 remaining, giving Virginia a 23-21 victory against No. 21 Louisville on Saturday.

Four plays later, Fryes third field goal of the game allowed the Cavaliers to end an 11-game slide against FBS-level competition. Louisville (2-1, 1-1) had tied the game midway through the quarter, but the Cardinals fourth turnover was too much for them to overcome. On the fumbled punt, Quick was bumped into by a teammate. The victory was the first for Virginia against a ranked team since a 14-13 triumph at Florida State on Nov. 19, 2011, and was their first in their last 11 games against ACC teams.No. 14 Mississippi 56, Louisiana-Lafayette 15OXFORD, Miss.

Terrance Broadway completed 15 of 30 passes for 129 yards and three interceptions.No. 15 Stanford 35, Army 0STANFORD, Calif. Kevin Hogan threw for 216 yards and four touchdowns, and No. 15 Stanford rebounded from a loss to Southern California with a 35-0 win over Army on Saturday. Devon Cajuste caught a careerhigh three touchdowns and finished with 52 yards receiving, and Ty Montgomery had two TDs to help the Cardinal (2-1) overcome a sluggish start on offense. Stanford led 14-0 at the half before overwhelming the Black Knights (1-1) in the final two quarters. The Cardinal outgained Army 415 to 207 yards. It was the second shutout for Stanfords defense in three games. The Cardinal beat UC Davis 45-0 to open the season before losing 13-10 to USC last week.East Carolina 28, No. 17 Virginia Tech 21 BLACKSBURG, Va. East Carolina quarterback Shane Carden threw three touchdown passes and scored a rushing touchdown with 16 seconds left to lead the Pirates to a 28-21 upset of No. 17 Virginia Tech on Saturday.

Quarterback Justin Holman threw for 209 yards and one touchdown in his first career start for Central Florida, which only had 134 yards in the second half. Missouri had five sacks and forced four turnovers in the final 30 minutes. Mauk entered the day tied for first nationally with eight passing touchdowns, and said this week that he likes to think aggressively on the field, even though sometimes it can be to the Tigers detriment.No. 22 Ohio St. 66, Kent St. 0COLUMBUS, Ohio J.T. Barrett matched a school record with six touchdown passes five in the first half to lead No. 22 Ohio State, rebounding from a loss to Virginia Tech, to a 66-0 victory over Kent State.

Hes confident his players are capable of becoming the type of turnover-generating ones hes accustomed to being around. Fisher just hopes its not this week, when his Rams (0-1) visit the Bucs. St. Louis lost starting quarterback Sam Bradford to injury in the preseason and also could be without his replacement, Shaun Hill today. Hill left last weeks 34-6 loss to Minnesota with a left quadriceps injury. If hes not able to play, Austin Davis will make his first NFL start. Davis replaced Hill against the Vikings, throwing for 192 yards and having an interception returned for a touchdown in his pro debut. He entered training camp as the fourth quarterback and has been with the Rams parts of three seasons. Itll be the second straight week the Bucs have faced a backup. Cam Newton sat out Carolinas opener with a rib injury, however Tampa Bay had few answers for his replacement, Derek Anderson. Regardless who starts for the Rams, defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier said its essential Tampa Bay play better. Weve got to be able to get those turnovers, those takeaways, no matter how the game is going, Frazier said. It really gives you a chance to be successful.

Associated PressTORONTO Adam Lind hit a tiebreaking two-run home run in the seventh inning, Edwin Encarnacion also went deep and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-3 on Saturday. Lind connected off Brad Boxberger (5-2) for his first homer since June 23 against the New York Yankees. He finished 2 for 3 with a walk and three RBIs. Encarnacion followed by driving the first pitch he saw from Steve Geltz into the second deck in left, the eighth time this season the Blue Jays have hit backto-back home runs. R.A. Dickey (13-12) allowed three runs and four hits in seven innings to win his fourth straight decision as the Blue Jays improved to 8-3 in September. Toronto came in four games out in the AL wild-card race. Brett Cecil worked the eighth and Casey Janssen finished for his 23rd save in 28 chances as the Blue Jays won for the fifth time in seven meetings with the Rays.AMERICAN LEAGUE Yankees 3, Orioles 2BALTIMORE Chris Young stole home in his latest surprising September performance, and the New York Yankees beat AL East-leading Baltimore 3-2, ending the Orioles longest winning streak of the season at six. The Yankees bounced back after being swept in a doubleheader Friday. New York stayed on the fringe of the wild-card race while Baltimores magic number for clinching the division remained at five. Cut by the New York Mets earlier this year as an extended slump, Young has seemed to deliver for the Yankees on a daily basis this week. Young added his to recent bunch of extra-base hits when he doubled during a three-run second off Miguel Gonzalez (9-8). Speedy Antoan Richardson followed with an RBI single and then took off for second, beating the throw while Young scampered home without a return toss. Shane Greene (5-3) improved to 4-0 in seven road starts this season, including a victory at Camden Yards in July. He allowed two runs and seven hits, striking out nine in 5 1/3 innings.Royals 7, Red Sox 1KANSAS CITY, Mo. Jeremy Guthrie retired the final 17 batters he faced, Omar Infante had three hits and drove in two runs, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Boston Red Sox 7-1. Manager Ned Yost overhauled his batting order and got immediate results. The Royals scored seven runs for the first time since Aug. 19, a span of 22 games. Nori Aoki, batting second for the first time this season, and Alex Gordon, who snapped an 0-for-22 skid, each had two hits, scored a run and drove in a run. Infante, who usually bats second, was dropped to seventh and responded with three singles, including an eighth inning single that scored Lorenzo Cain. He also drove in a run in the third with a fielders choice. Guthrie (11-11), who was roughed up for eight runs on 10 hits in 2 2/3 innings in a loss Monday at Detroit, allowed three hits and one unearned run in eight innings.NATIONAL LEAGUE Phillies 2, Marlins 1PHILADELPHIA Marlon Byrd hit an RBI double and threw out a runner at the plate, leading Kyle Kendrick and the Philadelphia Phillies over the Miami Marlins 2-1. Miami lost its fourth straight game and second minus star slugger Giancarlo Stanton, hit in the face by a fastball Thursday. Byrd and rookie Maikel Franco drove in runs in the first inning. Down by a run, the Marlins threatened in the seventh when Kendrick (9-12) gave up a pair of singles. He was pulled after striking out Jeff Mathis and Jake Diekman relieved. Pinch-hitter Reed Johnson singled to right for the 1,000th hit of his career, but Byrd kept Philadelphia in front by nailing Justin Bour at the plate with a strong, one-hop throw. Jonathan Papelbon pitched a scoreless ninth for his 37th save in 40 opportunities. Brad Hand (3-7) took the loss.Reds 5, Brewers 1MILWAUKEE David Holmberg pitched six effective innings, Billy Hamilton hit a two-run triple and the Cincinnati Reds beat Milwaukee 5-1, snapping the Brewers three-game winning streak. Holmberg (1-1) allowed two hits, including Aramis Ramirezs fourth-inning homer. The left-hander has yielded one earned run in 12 2/3 innings over three September appearances. The Brewers offense is struggling as it tries to keep pace in the National League playoff race. The Brewers entered the evening 1 1/2 games behind Pittsburgh for the second wild-card spot. Cincinnati scratched out two runs in the fourth on a bases-loaded walk and sacrifice fly off Yovani Gallardo (8-10). The speedy Hamilton broke open a one-run game with his triple to the gap in right-center in the seventh.Cardinals 5, Rockies 4ST. LOUIS Matt Holliday homered in the first inning for the second straight night and Shelby Miller pitched six solid innings and had an RBI double, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies. Matt Carpenter added a two-run homer in the second for the NL Central leaders, who have won 12 in a row at home in the final month of the season dating to last Sept. 14. Of their 10 runs in the first two games of this series, seven have come in the first two innings. The Cardinals are 9-4 this month and took a 3 1/2 game lead over Pittsburgh. Wilin Rosario, Josh Rutledge and pinch-hitter Michael McHenry had an RBI apiece in the ninth and the Rockies put the tying run on second before Pat Neshek got pinch-hitter Rafael Ynoa to fly out for his sixth save in nine chances.Cubs 6, Pirates 4PITTSBURGH Rookies Javier Baez and Matt Szczur homered, and the Chicago Cubs snapped a sevengame losing streak with a 6-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Baez connected for a two-run shot in Chicagos three-run third, and Szczur hit a leadoff drive in the eighth for his first career homer. It was Baezs second homer in two nights and No. 9 on the season. Felix Doubront (2-1) pitched six scoreless innings for the Cubs in his third start since he was acquired in a trade with the Boston Red Sox. Russell Martin hit a three-run double in the eighth for Pittsburgh, which had won seven of eight. The Pirates lead for the second NL wild card stayed at 1 1/2 games over Milwaukee, which lost 5-1 to Cincinnati.Nationals 10,Mets3NEW YORK Bryce Harper homered, Ian Desmond drove in three runs and the Washington Nationals moved a step closer to their second NL East title in three years with a 10-3 victory over the New YorkMets. Anthony Rendon added to his huge series with four hits as Washington reduced its magic number to six for clinching the division. Denard Span had a two-run homer in the ninth inning and scored three times. Doug Fister (14-6) was handed a 6-0 lead and breezed to his fourth win in four career starts against theMets all in the past 13 months. One night after their 12-game winning streak at Citi Field was snapped, the Nationals went right back to dominating New York on a dreary night in Queens. Harper homered off an ineffective Zack Wheeler (10-10) in the second. INTERLEAGUE Rangers 3, Braves 2ARLINGTON, Texas Rougned Odors go-ahead double gave fellow rookie Lisalverto Bonilla a win in his first major-league start, and the lastplace Texas Rangers beat Atlanta 3-2, handing the Braves another setback in their push for an NL wild-card spot. Atlantas Julio Teheran (13-12) took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before a one-out single from Luis Sardinas. An error by left fielder Jason Heyward kept the inning alive, and Odor took advantage by driving home Leonys Martin and Elvis Andrus for a 3-2 lead. Bonilla (1-0) was on a pitch count but still got through six innings on 78 pitches despite four walks. The Braves, who started the day three games behind Pittsburgh for the second NL wild-card spot, dropped to 2-6 on their nine-game road trip.

But with star running back Adrian Peterson not playing, New England's biggest worry will be slowing down wideout Cordarrelle Patterson, who had a huge game rushing and receiving at St. Louis.New York Jets (1-0) at Green Bay (0-1)The Packers have had plenty of time to prepare for the Jets, but also lots of time since Sept. 4 to stew about how poorly they performed at Seattle. Now, they get an opponent whose defense can play tricks on anyone. Green Bay faces another tough running game led by Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson after yielding 207 yards on the ground to the Seahawks.Philadelphia (1-0) at Indianapolis (0-1), MondayDont stray from the TV set for too long on this one, the way both teams move the ball and stress a quick tempo. Philly has won five straight road openers. But Indy has not lost backto-back regular-season games since coach Chuck Pagano and Luck arrived in 2012. Both teams have a former Browns head coach as an assistant: Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and Colts special assistant Rob Chudzinski.Chicago (0-1) at San Francisco (1-0)The biggest bust of the opening weekend had to be the Bears, who fell at home to Buffalo. To avoid an 0-2 start and a severe drop in the optimism they carried into the season, the Bears need to take better care of the ball. Santa Clara gets to host its first real NFL game at the new $1.2 billion Levis Stadium. The hosts assure everyone the grass field will be playable after twice being replaced.Seattle (1-0) at San Diego (0-1)How good did the Seahawks look against a seemingly solid Green Bay team? For now, theres little discussion who is the NFLs best.Detroit (1-0) at Carolina (1-0)Two teams that looked superior on defense, albeit against weak offenses. Linebacker Luke Kuechly, last years top defensive player in the league, was everywhere in the win at Tampa Bay. The Bucs had little chance to test Carolinas supposedly poor secondary because of the Panthers front seven. The Lions present a difficult matchup for that secondary with Calvin Johnson, whose 164 yards lead the NFL he also had two TDs against the Giants and newcomer Golden Tate.Kansas City (0-1) at Denver (1-0)Speaking of tough guys to cover, Broncos tight end Julius Thomas picked up where he left off last season with three TD catches against the Colts. Peyton Manning, who has beaten all 32 teams now, loves seeing KC: He is 11-1 with 3,530 yards passing and 24 TDs. Kansas City already has been ravaged by injuries, but it gets back wideout Dwayne Bowe from a onegame suspension.New Orleans (0-1) at Cleveland (0-1)The Saints seemed in control in Atlanta before flopping late. They gained 477 yards and Drew Brees passed for 333. He has 51,414 and needs 62 yards to pass John Elway for fourth on the career yardage list. Cleveland made a stirring comeback at Pittsburgh, then fell on the final play, 30-27. The Browns lost starting RB Ben Tate (knee) and have dropped eight consecutive home openers.Atlanta (1-0) at Cincinnati (1-0)Few teams were more impressive in opening road victories than the Bengals, who were 0-3 in Baltimore with Andy Dalton at quarterback. And when they blew a 15-0 lead, they responded. This is a matchup of superb receivers: A.J. Green on the Bengals, Julio Jones and Roddy White on the Falcons. Could be a shootout.Miami (1-0) at Buffalo (1-0)If you predicted these two would be spotless after their openers, please buy us some lottery tickets. Miami displayed a fierce pass rush that dumped Brady four times in the second half. Just as impressive was a rushing attack that overpowered the Patriots. Buffalo stunned everyone in Chicago, and a whole lot of folks back in western New York, with its overtime win. The victory offset all kinds of preseason turmoil for the Bills, and then there was more good news when the franchise was purchased by the Terry and Kim Pegula. They plan to keep it in Buffalo.Jacksonville (0-1) at Washington (0-1)No one can blame the Jaguars for wanting to remember the first half they played at Philadelphia, leading 17-0. As for the second half and the Eagles 34 straight points, theyre not erasing those thoughts as painful as they were coach Gus Bradley said. Washington didnt come close to a 60-minute performance in Houston.Arizona (1-0) at New York Giants (0-1)So the Cardinals have a short week and need to make a crosscountry trip for an early Sunday kickoff. Often that spells failure, but the Giants also played a Monday night opener. And New Yorks new offense was, well, offensive to the tune of being inept or invisible at Detroit. New York got off to an 0-6 start in 2013 and there already are rumblings in the Big Apple about another long season. Dallas (0-1) at Tennessee (1-0)What a nice debut for Ken Whisenhunt as coach of the Titans, who dominated the Chiefs in Kansas City. Jason McCourty had two interceptions, and the way Tony Romo was getting picked in the Cowboys dismal opener, McCourty and friends surely are thinking about more takeaways. Dallas was the only team with four giveaways in its opener.Houston (1-0) at Oakland (0-1)Already, the Raiders are at the bottom of the offense rankings. Yes, they played a pretty staunch defense in the Jets, managing a meager 25 yards on the ground and 176 overall with a rookie quarterback. Now, Derek Carr faces a better pass rush, led by end J.J.

Section CSUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW After watching the weather report concerning tropical storms bouncing around the Atlantic, I thought it made sense to clean out the storage area under the house. We live in a flood zone, so its important that if waters do rise, we dont contribute to the junk that ends up floating all over Crystal River. Underneath the house we have 10 years of paint cans that needed to be taken to the county landfill for proper disposal. I wanted to handle the effort correctly, so I pulled out the computer and went to the Citrus County landfills website. When I found paint disposal, the very first recommendation on the list reads: Avoid having leftover paint by only buying the amount that you need. Really? Thats the best advice our government can give us? Only buy the exact amount of paint you need for a job? I can see myself going into SherwinWilliams and telling them I only want three quarters of a gallon of paint to do the bathroom. I went back downstairs and found about 20 paint cans with varying amounts of gooey liquid inside. I was certainly a failure at guessing exactly how much paint I should have purchased. Advice item No. 2 from local government on what to do with your leftover paint: Paint a doghouse or other small structure with the leftover paint. I am not making this up. Its on the list. I dont have a doghouse. My dogs are treated like royalty and live inside the house. In fact, if it came down to a choice of who would live in a small, nonair-conditioned structure outside of the main living quarters and the choice was between me and the dogs, I am pretty sure I know who would be barking at the moon, and it wouldnt be the Yorkies. So painting a doghouse Official advice on how to get rid of your paint Scott AdamsGUEST COLUMN Mr. Mulligan, What I would like to point out is this has nothing to do with veterans. This is about cronyism and favoritism. Mrs. Pearson left Citrus County under a cloud and poor management style that she should have been fired for. Some of the issues under her watch are hundreds of thousands of theft in parks and rec, gas cards, and numerous other things I could mention. I believe this job offer to JJ Kenney in return is a clear message of the inbreeding that is going on in the bureaucracy. It was prior to his election loss and it was going to be held open while he finished his commission position. What I want to know is, how is this fair to all of the good veterans that have applied for this same job not knowing a deal has already been cut? This isnt a very transparent hiring process. Mr. Mulligan has lost sight of what a publisher should be doing for the citizens. You would think he would be complimenting me on many of the issues I have brought forward to the publics attention instead of beating me up while the existing politicians have tried to bury all these issues and refuse to acknowledge them like a duck with its head in the sand including himself. Maybe Mr. Mulligan needs to take a look at all of these boards he sits on with these folks.

It was a good group with good questions. At the end of the meeting, several people had questions regarding desalination, or the removal of the salts from sea or brackish water to provide drinking, irrigation and other fresh water needs. This process is often cited as a possible solution to our longterm water needs here in Florida. After all, we are surrounded by salt water no more than 60 miles from any location in our state.

Page C2SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2014 Adams off base on fire MSBUWatching the last county commission meeting from my computer, I was shocked to hear the argument of Commissioner Scott Adams about the response time in saving a life by the fire department as he debated the need for the MSBU with Sheriff Jeff Dawsy. Adams stated that When it is your time to die, nobody will be able to help you and death is assured. What ever happened to the saying, No one knows when the bell tolls? It seems to me that we now have a new prophet here in Citrus County. Mr. Adams must have an in with the Almighty that leaves all the rest of us wondering. The last time I read my Bible, it seemed perfectly clear to me that the Almighty gave us a free will and the choice was ours. What if we all stood around and did nothing while a house is burning with children inside? What if we all just decided that their is no hope for somebody that just got hit by a automobile and we dont bother calling 911? Too bad Adams doesnt attend the presentations of the Medal of Honor ceremonies at the White House and listen to the citations of brave men that gave their all so others may live. Our sheriff is responsible for the safety of the citizens of this county along with the fire chief. The deputies and firefighters risk their lives every day to keep us safe from all kinds of unknown incidents that fall upon us daily. Please stop playing the God card. Yes, death is assured and it is a part of the process of life. We are spiritual beings living in a mortal body. No one ever asked to be born into the flesh. It is a gift and a wonder to see how many people sacrifice their mortality for others in the belief of their spiritual nature that will live in eternity. Citizens of Citrus County, please support the formation of the fire departments (MSBU) and see that they have the proper equipment to save a life for that live they save could be you at the risk of theirs. I thank God that these young men are willing to sacrifice all to keep us safe, dont you think they deserve all that is needed to accomplish that mission.Charles Knecht Sr. DunnellonOur family thanks youDear caregivers and friends of Ena Janosko: During the past two years of our dear mothers life, during which she grew to need a little extra help day by day, we were fortunate to have all of you enter her world.

You gave our family great peace of mind knowing that she was being cared for by such special people.

With love and gratitude, Enas family.Sharon and Fred DeLong Carol and Jack Easton Michael and Sherry Janosko, and grandchildren Because nothing important is going on in the world right now, America is engaged in a fevered debate about airplane seats. Is there a God-given right to recline, even if it impinges on the kneecaps of the person seated behind you? Three recent in-air disputes have resulted in commercial flights being rerouted for unscheduled landings, and feuding passengers booted off. This trend, if it continues, can only add more thrills to the already-hectic air travel experience. The first and most publicized case involved the use of a device called a Knee Defender, which sounds like something youd find at an adult novelty store. Actually its a pair of plastic clips that lock onto the tray table at your seat, preventing the person in front of you from leaning back. A man on a United flight from Newark to Denver installed a Knee Defender, igniting an argument with the woman in front of him. According to the Associated Press, she threw a drink at the man. The pilot diverted to Chicago, where both passengers were removed. Later, the deployer of the Knee Defender, James Beach, said he was pretty ashamed of what had happened, and sorry for the harsh words hed unleashed on flight attendants. Across the cyber world, however, sympathetic passengers have rallied to Beachs defense. Others have sided with the woman with whom he quarreled, asserting that anyone who buys a ticket for a reclining seat has a right to lean back in it. Soon afterward, a flight from Paris to Miami was diverted after an altercation over seatreclining etiquette. Then a Delta flight from New York to West Palm Beach was rerouted to Jacksonville for the same stupefying reason. Friction among cramped airline travelers has been going for decades, but only now has it erupted into incidents that actually disrupt (and interrupt) flights. This can best be explained in evolutionary terms, the human race obviously in a fast backwards slide toward the primal ooze. Available online for $21.95, Knee Defender is marketed for tall men and women to defend the space you need when confronted by a faceless, determined seat recliner who doesnt care how long your legs are or about anything else that might be back there. A call to battle! Defend yourself against a faceless enemy! Of course the true enemy is the airline industry and its sardine-can engineering of passenger cabins. Rather than redesign the rows for more comfort, carriers now exploit customer misery by charging extra for seats with slightly more leg room. Its no wonder that portable hardware such as Knee Defender has caught on. In past days, a tall person seated in 12-C had only a few defensive options when the stranger in 11-C dropped his headrest on your legs. One effective tactic was a deep hacking cough, followed by a murmured, God, I hope its not pneumonia again. That usually produced a reaction known as the reverse jack-in-the-box, a swift and complete withdrawal by the encroaching passenger. Another old standby, when confronted with the unwanted intimacy of a rude recliner, was to fake an attack of airsickness. Honey, wheres the vomit bag? Hurry! you might cry, while fumbling dramatically in the seat pocket. Almost always the prone offender would launch himself forward, frantically seeking to remove himself from the likely spray pattern. No such theatrics are necessary in the era of Knee Defenders. Once those clasps are secured on the hinge of the tray table, your territory is boldly established. For customers leery of the gadgets passive-aggressive intent, the manufacturers extol a bonus medical benefit: Protection against blood clots. They say Knee Defender helps you keep the airplane legroom space you need to do in-seat exercises such as foot lifts, which can prevent a dangerous clotting condition called deep vein thrombosis. True or not, thats savvy marketing. Theres no guarantee that the passenger in front of you will buy the line about the blood clots, so you still might end up with a drink in your face. With mayhem and hatred boiling all over the globe, you wouldnt think wed be looking for something else to fight about, particularly at 32,000 feet. A scientific argument could be made that no truly advanced species would need a Knee Defender.

The Citrus County Commission wisely stepped to the plate this week and endorsed the Citrus Memorial hospital sale to Hospital Corporation of America (HCA). At the same time, the county agreed to partner with a request to Floridas attorney general to get a legal interpretation of the law used to handle the sale and/or lease of a public hospital to a private concern. Most importantly, commissioners made it clear they have no intention of putting any claim on the proceeds from the transaction and will permit all of the dollars to flow into a community trust. The county could have laid claim to a portion of the proceeds from a sale of the hospital, but that would have resulted in new lawsuits and all agreed the taxpayers of the community are tired of lawsuits. The hospital itself is being leased to HCA for 50 years for $127 million. Once pension funds are covered and existing bonds paid off, the remaining funds will be moved to a community trust. The community trust will use the proceeds from the investment of the remaining dollars to fund projects in Citrus County that benefit the public health. The new trusts bylaws will mandate that the principal never be touched and only 80 percent of the earnings will be distributed annually to the community. An independent community trust board will be established as part of the global agreement between the county, the CMH governing board and the CMH Foundation Board. The members of the trust will make the decisions on these future allocations. Two members of the 12member community trust board will be elected by county residents during regular elections. The other 10 members will represent various government, educational and medical institutions in the county. The membership of the trust board was still being debated to the end because some commissioners wanted to see representation from the nonprofit and business community. The community trust will operate in the sunshine and all documents will be considered public records. In the end, the commissioners decided to demonstrate support of the global agreement and pushed ahead. The requested attorney generals opinion will not be a barrier to the final signing of the documents with HCA, but will simply clarify an interpretation of a new law that has yet to be tried in the courts. There are still details to overcome, but taxpayers should feel comfort in that the best possible outcome of the HCA deal has been reached. A private company will take over CMH and stabilize a stressed-out public institution. Employees are guaranteed employment for at least one year and their pensions have been protected. Bonds will be paid off and a financial crisis averted for the countys largest and oldest hospital. The hospital property tax will disappear for good and the new operator of the hospital will become the second-largest property taxpayer in the county. (Duke Energy is the largest). In the end, the remaining value of the hospital will be moved to a community trust and the proceeds will be used to provide funds to worthy projects for decades to come. The journey is close to its conclusion. The county took the correct action in joining the Governing Board and Foundation Board. It is time to bring this issue to a conclusion.

COMMENTARYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, SEPTEMBER14, 2014 C3 colleagues in a bipartisan group to craft a comprehensive springs protection overhaul. Unfortunately, the bill did not succeed; however, it provided our springs with much-needed attention and we will continue to work on the legislation and offer it again next year. Although we were unable to reach our full goal, changes have been made throughout Florida. I have been pleased to see the return of community water projects, with the Legislature funding several of these projects throughout the state. These water projects have direct local impacts. For example, in Macclenny, which is in Baker County in my district, the Legislature appropriated funding this session to allow them to replace their sewer system. Without this replacement, sewage was part of the runoff during any rainstorm, as the sewer system was above ground and exposed in some locations. Another example is the cleaning of the muck in Chassahowitzka Springs in Citrus County, greatly improving the water quality. Other examples include the One Rake at a Time project led by Art Jones and the Kings Bay Rotary Club. I was proud to help provide them funding for their work to rake the bay clean of the algae that was clogging it. This has led to the revitalization of dozens of springs throughout Kings Bay, which are now coming to life as the Lyngbya is cleared from them. These are small but critically important steps, and we must continue them. As another example, the Legislature appropriated $10 million for springs projects across the state. With the buy-in of local governments and the water management districts, the state was able to parlay that $10 million investment into $37 million of local, shovelready projects. These are projects which, like the sewer system repairs in Macclenny and the raking of Kings Bay, will have immediate impacts on local springs and spring protection efforts. The success of these projects last year led the Legislature to appropriate $30 million this year, a figure I believe can be turned into nearly $100 million worth of projects with the buyin we saw last year from the local governments across the state. Though these are small steps, done together and in tandem across the state of Florida, they create a massive impact. We must continue with these efforts. Local efforts such as One Rake at a Time highlight the issues we are facing and their numerous volunteers give a face to these efforts. We must support our local efforts, which lead to attention at the state level. Our job is far from done, and I look forward to facing the challenges head on when I return to Tallahassee for next years legislative session. However, with the help of people across the state who love their springs and have memories just as I do, we can save these fragile treasures for future generations. I am committed to saving our springs so that future generations can dip their toes in the water of a cool spring on a summer day just as I was able to do. We must continue to do all we can to protect our endangered springs and to ensure our lakes and rivers are not forgotten. A native Floridian and Citrus County resident, state Sen. Charles Dean represents Florida Senate District 5 and is the chairman of the Florida Senates Committee on Environmental Protection and Conservation. each county and city receiving water from the utility. Often these representatives are county commissioners, city councilman or utility directors from the user groups. The operation of the facility is accomplished through a public/private partnership with a private company operating and the TBW overseeing the finances and management of the desal plant. The desal plant and a very large surface water reservoir were built in the early 2000s to accommodate the rapidly growing Tampa Bay area. It was realized for many years prior that the natural groundwater supply in the three-county area (Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco) could not sustain the freshwater needs of several million people without harming the natural environment, i.e. destroying wetlands, lakes, streams, rivers and springs. So why not build one of these desal facilities here in our area? There are at least two reasons. First, because there is still ample fresh groundwater to meet growing needs in our county that can be developed in an environmentally sustainable manner. The draft 2014 Withlacoochee Regional Water Supply Plan, states that for most of the fourcounty region, there is more than adequate groundwater to meet water use needs for the next 20 years, particularly when additional conservation and use of reclaimed water are considered. The exception to this statement may be in Marion County where many water managers are concerned that groundwater may not be a sustainable source for the long term. The second reason is that desalination of seawater is the most expensive option for water supply. In a January 2014 article of Money magazine, the cost of construction for a 50 million gallon per day (MGD) desal plant near San Diego was cited as being $1 billion yes, that is with a B. This desal plant is to be operational in 2016. Unless a desal plant here helped supply the Orlando area, a 50 MGD desal plant is likely much larger than our region would need. But the ongoing operational costs for a desalination plant are also higher than for any other source of water in this region. The bottom line is, a desal plant is a very expensive proposition. The same water supply plan mentioned above indicates that a desal plant operated here in Citrus County at the Duke Power facility near Crystal River, would likely cost users between $5.68 per 1,000 gallons and $11.42 per 1,000 gallons. The cost range is dependent on the desal processes available at the Crystal River site, including disposal methods for the waste concentrate produced by the desalination process. Groundwater resources today typically cost users between $1 and $2 per 1,000 gallons, significantly less than seawater desalination. Some have observed that in many Middle Eastern countries, desalination is the primary fresh water supply source. Just keep in mind that they have very few other sustainable sources of fresh water and they have large, cheap local supplies of oil based energy for the desal process. There is an alternative being discussed with state Rep. Jimmie T. Smith that would consider a desalination facility at the Crystal River Duke Power plant with a focused group of users along the U.S. 19 corridor in northwestern Citrus County. This idea might be a good desal project with the water users being located in an industrial park along the mentioned corridor. The project, if carried forward, may eliminate the need to install large water wells that would be subject to salt water intrusion in that location. This is an option that should be explored. Simple, straightforward, fair but firm fresh water conservation and water quality preservation legislation, along with springs and aquifer protection programs, could save us all from the need to consider expensive alternatives like desalination for general use throughout the region. Although the Florida Senate tried hard this past legislative session to enact meaningful legislation along these lines, House Speaker Weatherford said he didnt have time to read the proposed Senate legislation. Consequently, it never came before the House for discussion. How sad for our states future. Will our governor and the Florida House of Representatives wake up to the need for fair but firm water conservation and water quality prevention legislation before its too late?Gary W. Kuhl is a retired Florida professional engineer. After receiving his masters degree in environmental engineering, he worked in water resource management, public works and county administration over a 42-year career. with my leftover paint was out. I have occasionally thought about painting my neighbors car, but after reading about the arrest this week in Inverness of the man who painted his neighbors fence yellow, I figured the idea probably had some unpleasant consequences. I really just wanted instructions on how to safely get the paint cans to the landfill. The final recommendation from the official county website on what to do with your leftover paint jumped out at me: Give it to a friend. Brilliant! Instead of disposing of my paint at the landfill, Im going to load it up in a car and drop it off at the houses of friends around the county. Lets see, the half-can of Retirement Red can go to recently retired County Administrator Brad Thorpe. Im sure he has something to paint. My one-eighth of a can of Royal Blue could go to Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni. He is sometimes referred to as the King of Inverness, so I am sure he has a use for blue. The one-half can of FireEngine Red will be dumped in the garage of Sheriff Jeff Dawsy, because he is now in charge of all the countys fire trucks. On second thought, Sheriff Dawsy only enjoys buying new trucks, so he might not need the paint. The sheriff buys new trucks long before the old ones need painting. The one-tenth of a can of Diamond Blue will be dumped in the garages of attorneys Bill Grant and Clark Stillwell, because everything is diamonds with these guys after five years of collecting legal fees from the Citrus Memorial hospital debacle. And finally, the nearly empty can of Lavender Pink will go to county Commissioner Scott Adams garage because the experts say Lavender Pink has a calming effect on people and makes them say pleasant things to others. That would be nice. Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle. Email him at gmulligan @chronicleonline.com. Im glad nobody messed with Chimney Rock Back during the mid19th century, America was making a move westward. There were no four-lane highways and no road signs. There was little to guide these brave souls on their journey except the sun, the stars, a compass, and hopefully, a wagonmaster who knew his stuff, including the landmarks. Based on my limited research, Ive determined that one of the most significant landmarks during those days was Chimney Rock, a rock formation jutting straight up into the sky 2,280 feet above sea level. It could be seen for many miles in any direction. To oversimplify, folks heading west all pretty much followed the same route until they got to Chimney Rock. Then, if they wanted to go to Oregon, they turned to the right and if they wanted to go to California, they veered to the left. Landmarks. In eastern Citrus County, between Inverness and I-75, on a side street just off of State Road 44, there is an establishment that specializes in the most delicious fried chicken wings. In the days before our doctors told us that we should not eat these delicacies at all and certainly not often, my sweetheart and I were very familiar with how to get there. There was a landmark we knew well at the intersection where one must turn left to find the wings, a ramshackle convenience store you simply couldnt miss. A few nights ago, we were having a small family celebration. When asked what theyd like for supper, our progeny said wings. In spite of doctors orders, it was a done deal. Due to the size of our party, it was necessary to take two cars. The larger group headed out for the agreedupon destination. Cheryl and I followed minutes later, certain we knew where we were going. Cheryl was driving. She had no problem making it to S.R. 44 and we were zooming along enjoying a conversation, when I realized we were closing in on I-75! We had missed our left turn. I sounded the alarm. As soon as possible, Cheryl made a legal Uturn and we retreated back toward Inverness. I paid close attention and recognized the appropriate road once I saw the street sign. But our landmark is gone! The very recognizable convenience store had been replaced by a cookiecutter style mini-department store, one of those that looks just like the other dozen or so we must drive by regardless of where we are going. The good news is we had chicken wings a bit later than planned, nonetheless, but we still had em. And I couldnt help but think about those folks heading west 150 years ago. Im sure glad nobody messed with Chimney Rock.Fred Brannen, an Inverness resident, has been a Chronicle columnist since 1988 and is the author of the recently published novel, At the Bottom of Biscayne Bay.

Nugent and most Republicans have repeatedly voted down funding veterans issues. Ive had an appeal in with the VA that has dragged on for years. My primary care doctor at Lecanto VA Clinic referred me to a dermatologist to have skin tags removed. When I reported to the dermatologist in Gainesville, she inspected the growths, told me they werent cancerous and suggested I remove them myself with scissors. I guess I must have looked at her like shed grown another head. And after I told her I wasnt going to cut them off with scissors, she got out the liquid nitrogen and burned them off.

When I retired, it was my dream to bring happiness to people by singing and playing guitar. I have performed in most nursing and assistedliving facilities in Citrus County as well as other places. Because the music was coming from my heart, I named my business Richard Michael Reyes presents Music from the Heart. Perhaps now I should add Music from my Mended Heart! Once I realized that I needed heart surgery, I was faced with answering the questions of where to have it done and what doctor is qualified to do the surgery. Im so happy that I chose the Citrus Memorial Heart and Vascular Center Unit to perform the operation. Originally, I was admitted for a bicuspid aortic valve replacement,and then to everyones surprise, an aneurysm in the ascending aorta was found and repaired as well. Finding that now was truly a godsend! From the moment in pre-op when you placed your hand on my heart and said a prayer, I felt the spirit enter me and I was at peace with my decision. The cath unit, pre-Op, surgical staff, recovery nurses, and the 3rd floor CVPU were all wonderful! My sincere thanks from my heart to yours!Richard Michael ReyesProbably best they did not voteA recent Letter to the Editor expressed great dismay over the low voter turnout in our recent local election. May I suggest viewing it a bit differently? If an eligible voter has not taken the time to know the issues nor anything objective about the candidates and their positions, arent we all better off if they remain home on Election Day? Id rather these folks catch the latest Kardashian masterpiece than neutralize a vote from a well-informed citizen. We should be much more concerned about the quality of knowledge the voter brings to the booth rather than the raw quantity of those showing up. Personally, Id like to thank those who stayed home because they were not interested enough to adequately inform themselves or participate. Lastly, in fairness to all, candidates must accept some blame for voter nonparticipation. May I suggest for starters keeping your litter (placards) off our streets no sooner than a month prior to the election, focusing the campaign on the issuesand your solutions, using your television and radio spots judiciously, and stopping the robocalls? They just make us mad. Good luck to all of us we need it. Rick Wehrheim Sugarmill Woods

The RIVER (Reaching Intentional Victory, Expecting Reality) Project is currently the only classroom program that addresses both relationship education and sexual health issues to students of Citrus County. It is an interactive, riskavoidance program that encourages teens to make intentional, healthy decisions with regard to their goals, future, media literacy, sexual health and relationships with adults, peers, and potential dating partners. The programs mission is to equip students to stay clearheaded and intentional on the way to their future, staying away from the drama of drug use, unhealthy relationships and sex too soon. Rather than being a valuesand-morals curriculum, the curriculum is inclusive and evidencebased, delivering medically accurate information to students in sixth through ninth grades. Black Diamond Foundation (BDF) was the first to provide support for The RIVER Project in 2011 when federal funding for the program was cut. Two women in the local nonprofit field committed to saving this essential program in a county where 51 percent of the total births between 2008 and 2010 were to unwed mothers. Soon after, BDF was joined by the Citrus County Education Foundation. Together, the two foundations formed the financial bedrock for the program, assuring ninth-grade health students across Citrus County receive five sessions of instruction every fall at all three high schools. Successful fundraising activities, as well as donations from other private organizations and individuals, have helped to expand the program to provide eight sessions of instruction to ninth-grade students and five sessions to students in grades six through eight. Key fundraising events include an annual fall gala and the spring Walk & Roll event. Although the state does not require health education classroom instruction at any grade level in the public school system, Citrus County schools require a health education class in ninth grade. The RIVER Project is an essential part of the curriculum, supplementing and expanding the required information with interactive activities. In the middle schools, teachers give up instructional time in other subject areas to provide time for the vital program. The RIVER Project utilizes WAIT Training/Get REAL, an internationally recognized curriculum from The Center for Relationship Education in Colorado, which is approved at the local district level. The curriculum addresses teen sex and relationships from a holistic viewpoint, in that sex affects humans physically, intellectually, emotionally, socially and spiritually. This viewpoint is helpful when confronted with Citrus health statistics, most notably the elevated teen pregnancy rate, nonmarital birth rate, and number of births covered by Medicaid. Many teens have knowledge of and access to contraception, but because of unhealthy relationships and family issues, some teens become pregnant to fill an emotional void. Education about the reality of parenthood and importance of self-sufficiency is key. It is of note that the teen pregnancy rate is on the decline in Citrus County, suggesting that education and discussion about these topics is helpful. But there is more work to do: Students still struggle with depression, addiction and unhealthy dating relationships. The RIVER Project helps students to address some of the causes behind these issues, including violence, poverty and substance abuse. Tests and surveys are taken before and after the classroom instruction. Student knowledge test results indicate that knowledge on topics increases on average from 64 to 89 percent. Student attitude survey results indicate that the percentage of students who are undecided about early sexual activity dropped from 42 to 28 percent. The percentage of students who think it is best to postpone sex rose from 34 to 58 percent. According to public health data, the rate of births by mothers under 18 years of age dropped from 9.5 percent in 1997 to under 6 percent in 2013. Interestingly, although national teen pregnancy rates are at a historic low, teen STDs infection rates are increasing, proving that knowledge of and access to birth control cannot be the only preventative measure taken in reducing all the physical risks of early sexual activity. There has also been a rise in the countys graduation rate in recent years, up to 80 percent, which is 5 percentage points higher than the state average. The RIVER Project is a program of Aspire Relationship Center, a Florida nonprofit that operates solely in Citrus County. As the program grows, so does the need for funding. If you would like to know more about the efforts, or would like to financially support this effort, please visit riverproject.info or contact Program Manager Katie Neely at katie@riverproject.info.

Section DSUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Bruce WilliamsSMART MONEY DEAR BRUCE: I have been living in my apartment for five years. I pay my bills on time. Now my landlord is telling me I have to move. No reason from him at all. We have no contract, just month-tomonth. I finally said OK and asked for my security payment of $500, which I have in a signed contract. Is it worth it for me to file a paper at the courthouse or walk away? Fred DEAR FRED: It is not unusual to have a month-tomonth rental agreement. You can leave any time, giving a months notice, and your landlord can ask you to leave with a months notice. Youve agreed, and you are moving out within that 30day period. You have every right to inquire about your $500. There is no reason to file at the courthouse or walk away, at least at the beginning. If your apartment is reasonably maintained and left clean, there should be no reason the $500 shouldnt be returned to you. If your landlord refuses to return it or gives you a lower amount due to damage in the apartment, thats a different matter, but it can be a matter of negotiation. If the amount is not high, it is sometimes easier to pay and move on. DEAR BRUCE: What is the difference between a checking and a savings account? Jenny DEAR JENNY: A savings account is simply an account used to deposit money into an institution, usually a bank or credit union, with the idea that the money will stay there and earn interest. In todays world, I see no reason to have a savings account since it effectively pays no interest. A checking account is a different matter altogether. With a checking account, you are allowed to write checks for the amount of money on deposit at any given time. A check is simMonth-to-month rental can end at 30 days notice See MONEY/ Page D2 Laura ByrnesCAREER SOURCE Talk about a missed opportunity. For Renee Wilson, now global chief client officer for the MSLGROUP, it came years ago when she was a gung-ho intern with more awards already under her belt than most folks amass in a lifetime. She fully expected her exceptional talent, dedication, work ethic and enthusiasm to land her a dream job at the Manhattan firm where she had been slogging away for six months. It didnt. Understandably crestfallen when she got the news, Wilson left the building to cool off and read from her favorite book of corporate inspiration written by her idol, the companys owner. Stepping into the elevator to return to her office, Wilson was joined by a man who noticed her gloomy demeanor and the book she was still clutching. He said something to the effect that she really ought to smile. Wilson told him that she had nothing to smile about. In fact, she unloaded with all the ill-conceived candor of youth. At the end of her tirade, her elevator companion gestured to the photograph on the back of the book and said, Well, I still think you should smile, and Ill bet that guy does, too. And then the CEO of the company, bestselling author and Renee Wilsons role model stepped out of the elevator and out of her life. We all know, or should know, the importance of a good elevator speech your 30-second pitch that tells who you are, what you do and why they should continue the conversation once the elevator ride ends. It could be argued that what transpired between Renee Wilson and the corporate mogul was the exact opposite of what you want an elevator speech to accomplish. Can you imagine just how differently things could have turned out if, instead of expressing her anger and When opportunity introduces itself, say hello See BYRNES/ Page D2 Several new businesses opening within 5 miles of each otherROCHELLEKAISER ChronicleThe landscape in Homosassa is changing as a number of new businesses opening continues to grow by leaps and bounds. The majority of these new businesses are located within a five-mile radius of each other and each one is either already open or plans to open before the end of the year. For the past month residents have been welcoming four new businesses that have opened. A brand new Auto Zone, located on U.S. 19 just south of Halls River Road, replaced the old Misty River restaurant; The Dog House, located at the intersection of Yulee Drive and Fishbowl Drive in old Homosassa, has just opened in the former Taz Dogs n Scoops; the new HearUSA, located in the Shoppes of Sugarmill Woods shopping center behind Walgreens has recently opened as well as the new Watsons Art Gallery & Studio, located on Yulee Drive. This is just the beginning as residents anticipate the opening of several other new businesses in the next two months. After being a fixture in Crystal River for more than 25 years, Farmers Home Furniture will soon relocate into its newly remodeled store next to Tractor Supply. The furniture company is taking over the remaining vacant half of the former Walmart store. We are very excited and looking forward to moving into a nice new store, said Dee Teague, store manager. Teague is overseeing the remodel of the new store and expects to move in by late October. She said a grand reopening will probably be held near the end of November.

DEAR BRUCE: My dog is turning 11 years old and I am worried that I wont be able to afford all his future vet visits. What do you think about pet insurance? K.B. DEAR K.B.: You are wise to worry. As your dog gets older, the vet bills can increase geometrically. Having just gone through this with my second dog, I can assure you it can be very expensive. Whether or not youll be able to buy a policy on a dog as old as yours is another matter, but I would certainly inquire. You can also look at partial coverage as compared to whole coverage. If the insurance is available at a decent price, its something you should consider. DEAR BRUCE: I have been out of work for six months and cant seem to catch up on any of my bills. My credit cards are maxed out. My total debt with car, cards, etc., is around $32,000. My question is, if I file for bankruptcy, will I be able to keep my car? B.V. DEAR B.V.: You have a tough road ahead of you, and I have nothing but sympathy. The fact that you are $32,000 in debt doesnt sit well. The problem is, how much is the car worth? If its an expensive vehicle, you will most likely be directed to sell it. If its of modest value, the chances are you can keep the car and, of course, you will have to continue to make payments on the automobile. Should you continue to be out of work, I would seriously consider bankruptcy as an option. Send questions to bruce @brucewilliams.com.

Wilson said that, in retrospect, it all worked out for the best and shes glad she didnt get that job. She went on to become one of the foremost authorities in global brand and influencer marketing, and has worked in London, throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

In addition to its regular merchandise Dollar Tree will also offer all the wow stuff it offers at similar locations including helium balloons and greeting cards, two for $1. Its a family affair at The Dog House where hungry guests can enjoy their Nathans hot dogs in a variety of ways that includes chili, sauerkraut and cheese along with regular favorites such as onions, relish, mustard and ketchup. For dessert guests can indulge in some Blue Bell ice cream with several different flavors available. Eventually we would like to add burgers but were taking little steps as we start out. Right now we try to add something new each week, said owner Cheryl Martin. Formerly known as Taz Dogs n Scoops, several family members have joined togetherto take shifts through out the week. Martin says the drive-thru tends to stay busy but she expects the outside seating area will also become busy once the weather starts to cool off. Just down the street is the new Watsons Art Gallery & Studio owned by residents Gil and Wendy Watson. The family moved to Homosassa just over a year ago from Colorado. They happened to find Homosassa through the Internet and were so impressed they ended up purchasing their new home sight unseen. Soon after moving to Homosassa, the Watsons began their search for the perfect location to open an art gallery. Before their big move they sold all of their artwork, so once they secured a new location, they immediately began working day and night to produce enough pieces to open. The studio is now filled with original art work, sculptures and signs with space reserved for other artists to showcase their work. Weve had a tremendous response from the community, said Gil Watson. Watson is a master carver and offers several carved and sculptured pieces of various sizes. His most popular pieces are headboards for any size bed and fireplace mantels with intricate carvings. The art gallery has only been open three months and hes already been commissioned to do more headboards and mantels. The studio offers smaller individual rooms off of the main gallery. One room has been dedicated as a fun room. Its filled with popular signs with sayings on them and molded fish with unusual expressions. Much of this detailed work is done by Wendy. Id like to dedicate one of the rooms as a bedroom where Ill have a real bed with one of my carved headboards and maybe some other carved pieces. Sculpting and carving is my big forte, Watson said. We have other plans to include a coffee shop and maybe a wine bar. Id like to expand beyond visual arts to include music too. Watson has some very ambitious plans that include getting all of the artists together for a meet and greet. He would like to bring all of these creative minds together to offer demonstrations and other small functions on weekends. He also plans to go overboard with decorations during the holidays. He is looking at November to hold a grand opening. And a new Quick Care Med Walk-in Clinic will soon open in the Springs Plaza near Publix at the corner of Halls River Road and U. S. 19. This will be the fourth location locally owned and operated. The clinic will offer urgent care. The office will also provide physicals for work, school, workmans comp and DOT. The clinic can also take care of people with colds, lacerations, broken bones and other medical issues, said Charley Cook, office manager at the Crystal River location. Besides Crystal River and Homosassa, other Quick Care Med Clinics are in Inverness and Dunnellon. Staff at the clinic will include a doctor along with mid-level assistants. It will provide jobs for up to five people. Quick Care Med Walk-in Clinic is expected to open the beginning of October.

said. Theres a limited number of lighthouses. The federal General Services Administration, which sells the lighthouses, does not have a target number of how many lighthouses it would like to sell and give away, but the Coast Guard is always looking to shed excess lighthouses that are often no longer critical to the guards work, said Patrick Sclafani, a spokesman for the agency. Buyers and preservationists typically allow the Coast Guard access to the lighthouses so it can maintain the lights, all of which are automated. The administration is the nearing the end of an online auction for the Halfway Rock Light Station off of Harpswell, Maine. The lighthouse is attracting interest, with a half dozen bidders and a high bid of more than $240,000. Thats a good figure for a lighthouse that is only accessible by boat, a feature that frequently drives bidders away, Gales said. Some of the lighthouses typically those that are easily accessed on land are transferred swiftly to historic preservation groups, while others that are off-shore or in need of heavy maintenance languish on the auction block with no interested bidders. Still others attract the eye of private investors, such as Bostons Waller. Officials say the GSAs Boston office has been responsible for about 80 percent of lighthouse conveyances and those transfers have netted $3.35 million for the Coast Guard. That office closed out an auction of New Englands tallest lighthouse, the Boon Island Light Station off of York, Maine, in August with a top bid of $78,000 out of 12 bidders. Winning bidder Art Girard of Portland, Maine, will inherit the 133-foot lighthouse and a challenge: it is located on an isolated, rocky island six miles off the Maine coast, barely salient from Cape Neddick in York. The government also is currently auctioning lighthouses in Massachusetts, Michigan and Wisconsin.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER14, 2014E15 E2SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER14, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 2421 N.

Associated PressYORK, Maine Lighthouses for sale! Actually, lots of lighthouses for free. Technological advances and a desire to purge unneeded properties have paved the way for the federal government to get rid of more than 100 lighthouses over the past 14 years, and it intends to keep selling and giving them away. The sold lighthouses, located on both coasts and in the Great Lakes states, have become everything from museums to bed-and-breakfasts. Dave Waller, who purchased the Graves Island Light Station in the mouth of Boston Harbor for a record $933,888 last year, is retrofitting the turn-of-the-century lighthouse into a private home that can double as a vacation rental. Hes trying to fashion a bedroom as far as possible from the foghorn a challenging feat in a building with about 750 feet of livable space. It just seemed like a chance to have something a little more independent and on your own, Waller said. Sixty-eight of the lighthouses have gone for free to preservationists while 36 others sold at public auction thanks to the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act of 2000, which allows the government to dispose of federally-owned lighthouses. The act turns 14 next month. The Coast Guard, which maintains lighthouses, has 71 other lighthouses queued up to go through the transfer process, and four are at auction now. The Coast Guard owns 254 light houses, officials said. The question is more about which ones it will keep than which ones it will eventually sell, said Jeff Gales, executive director of the non-profit U.S. Lighthouse Society. There is an end in sight, Gales aquifer as it dissipates within a few days. Read and follow the label directions on any chemical. Responsible gardeners always monitor neighboring properties and nearby natural areas for stray alien plants that may grow to disrupt local ecosystems. Golden Rain Tree is not yet on the FLEPPC invasive list for Florida. If there is enough lawn and garden area to control the seedlings and the maintenance required is acceptable, this species is sometimes available from small private nurseries or from neighbors. The prolific seeding has made Golden Rain Tree less popular in the 21st century.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant. Semi-retired, she grows thousands of native plants.

DEANFOSDICK Associated PressCompetition and conflict have existed between people and animals since the first gardeners began sowing seeds on the ground. The critters just as quickly carried them away. But coexisting with wildlife in farm fields or gardens can be a winning proposition if youre willing to alter your habitat. Even nuisance animals can become plant partners with a little planning. You can steer your way around a lot of the usual wildlife-property owner confrontations, said Robert Pierce, an extension fisheries and wildlife specialist with the University of Missouri. Do some homework about animal behavior, Pierce said. Know where raccoons or deer traditionally utilize cover or use traffic lanes. Its common sense that you wouldnt want to plant gardens in those areas. And sharing property with wild birds and animals doesnt necessarily mean reducing the size of your harvest, said Tammi Hartung, author of the new The WildlifeFriendly Vegetable Gardener (Storey Publishing).CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER14, 2014E13 E4SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER14, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE CALL Roy Bass TODAY (352) 726-2471 CALL Roy Bass TODAY (352) 726-2471 After Hours (352) 302-6714 All Citrus Realty INC All Citrus Realty INC Email: roybass@tampabay.rr.com www.allcitrusrealty.com 000JAHO OPEN LAKEFRONT-HERNANDO FL 1/2 acre on the lake.

Invite animals that can do your pest management. That will actually increase your yields in many cases. Almost any wildlife species can become a nuisance, Pierce said. Canada goose droppings are messy and potential health hazards. Moles damage lawns. Squirrels eat freshly planted bulbs. Small rodents such as voles will strip the bark from grapevines. Feral hogs damage pastures. Tolerance levels var y, Pierce said. Lots of folks just enjoy wildlife and like having them around. Much depends upon whether you have the money to invest to keep them away from your plants. The most benign ways to keep wildlife away from the garden include repellents, frightening techniques, rotating crops, decoy plants, fencing, netting and other barriers. Consider:Being proactive. Before the raspberries ripen, put up some tape or nets so the birds will never taste them and wont know what theyre missing, Hartung said.Modifying food and cover We have 30 deer coming through our property every day, she said. The deer wouldnt leave my tulips alone, so I dont grow tulips anymore. I grow (deer-resistant) daffodils instead.Distractions. Parsley redirects rabbits from salad greens, Hartung said. Plant some sunflowers next to your berry patch. Many birds prefer their seeds to the fruit.Growing a surplus for sharing. Add hedgerows outside the garden that include fruiting trees and shrubs.The hose. We use a motiondetector apparatus that hooks up to a hose, Hartung said. It sprays water when it detects motion. When raccoons come at night, they get a hard spray of water. It doesnt do them any harm but they stay away. Wildlife-friendly gardening has its challenges, but you can co-exist for the most part, she said. Something like a bear may show up and youll have to deal with it, Hartung said. Maybe then its as easy as picking up some fallen fruit and discarding it someplace else. You dont really need to trap animals, use toxic chemicals or shoot them, she said. You can find other solutions. WILDLIFEContinued from Page E4 GOT A NEWS TIP? The Chronicle welcomes tips from readers about breaking news.

DEAN FOSDICK/Associated PressRabbits may make cute pets but many, like this cottontail one in a Langley, Wash., yard, can eat their way through flower beds and vegetablegardens. If fencing doesnt keep them out, then try distracting them. A row of parsley, for example, can redirect rabbits from a crop of salad greens.

large closet or dressing room. Install a shelving system; if moneys an issue, just outfit one long wall to achieve the purpose. Add a chair or ottoman and a large mirror, perhaps, so buyers can imagine a dressing room. If your home is short on storage, consider outfitting an under-stair niche or other dead space with shelving, and stock the shelves with smart-looking boxes and bins. But leave some empty space in a closet, too. Closets filled with items other than clothes send the message there isnt enough storage in the house, says Bartling.Make it creativeTransform a bedroom with a tiny closet into creative workspace. Suggest a craft or art studio with a table and some neatly displayed materials. Line up a series of identical bookshelves and make a small yet inviting library by adding a rug, a comfortable chair and a side table.Make it an officeReal-estate agents tend to prefer that bedrooms be staged as bedrooms, because buyers usually want lots of those. But depending on your market, it may pay off to stage one of those rooms as a home office. If youve got more than four bedrooms, Clark says, turn one into a home office. In a four-bedroom home, use the room farthest from a bathroom, she advises. Add a desk, chair and lamp, and lay down a fresh new rug in either a chic neutral hue or a style-savvy pattern that ties it into neighboring rooms.Make it a workout spaceEmpty nesters often have basements that once were playrooms. Clark suggests converting a space like that into a cozy TV room or gym. For a gym, you dont need a lot of fancy equipment, she says. A bench, some neatly stacked weights, a few ropes or bands hung on pretty hooks, a mirror and a mat can all easily be arranged to create a powerful visual effect.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER14, 2014E11 E6SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER14, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000JAG7 EVELYN SURRENCY REALTOR CELL 352-634-1861 OFFICE 352-795-0021 FAX 352-795-1323 evelyn.surrency49@gmail.com www.evelynsurrency.com EACH OFFICE IS INDEPENDENTLY OWNED AND OPERATED NATURE COAST 835 NE Highway 19, Crystal River, FL 34429 YOUR WATERFRONT DESTINATION 4 Homes t o Choose From MLS #711206 $695,900 MLS #712846 $253,500 MLS #704254 $295,000 MLS #712819 $195,000 C ARL M ANUCCI 352-302-9787 S USAN M ULLEN 352-422-2133 000J9DK TERRA VISTA & BRENTWOOD Rentals Needed (T ERMS 6 MONTHS OR LONGER ) DETACHED VILLA 3 BED, 2 BATH, 2 CAR POOL Malibu Model 3 bedroom 2 bath 2 car garage. 14 x 28 self cleaning POOL with pavers in the lanai.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac also said Thursday the average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, slipped to 3.24 percent from 3.25 percent. At its 52-week low of 4.10 percent, the rate on a 30-year mortgage is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Federal Reserve has been trimming its monthly bond purchases, which are intended to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The purchases are set to end in October. The low rates appear to have boosted U.S. home sales. Also, moderating increases in home prices such as occurred in July should help support sales by making homes more affordable. Real-estate data provider CoreLogic reported Tuesday that home prices rose in July but at a slower rate compared with earlier this year. Greater affordability has helped the housing market recover over the spring and summer after sales and construction fell earlier this year. Sales of existing homes rose for a fourth straight month in July to their strongest pace in nine months. And a measure of signed contracts also increased in July, suggesting that final sales will rise further in coming months. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was 0.5 point, unchanged from last week. The fee for a 15-year mortgage fell to 0.5 point from 0.6 point. Evaluating paintings; advice on auctioning jade items Dear John: We have the two paintings in the photos, given to us long ago. They are signed A.B. Brandies. What can you tell us about the artist and what they might be worth? A.S., Internet Dear A.S.: The artist A.B. Brandies was born in 1849 and lived until 1920. He is listed as Austrian Italian. He painted genre scenes, figures, and Italian scenes. I think your two paintings would sell in the $1,000 range each. Dear John: I often listen to your radio show on WUFT and enjoy your column. I have sent some photos of some things. I am in a bind as far as the value. As far as the jade pieces, they are all old. I am not sure how old, but likely 30 to 40 years old. What would be the value of these lovely jade fruits and flowers? They are mounted on blue thread-wrapped wire. I am not sure if they might have been a sort of arranged fruit display. I found this in a thrift shop. The store owner guessed them to be glass, but I was sure they were jade. Between $6 and $8 each is what I paid. I paid $200 for the Buddha way back in 1985. I do not know what the values are today, but I have heard that the Chinese are interested in buying and returning their art to their country. I contacted an auction company, but do not know their ethics. I am very grateful for any advice as to selling and dealing with these middlemen. I would like to contact a reputable auction house that will not sucker punch me! Thank you so much.

Golden Rain Tree,Koelreuteria paniculata, originally from China and Korea, zones 4-10, is a slowgrowing tree that can reach 30 to 50 feet tall, with a spread of 25 to 30 feet. It was a popular landscape plant back in the midto late-20th century. There are many fine examples in older neighborhoods of Beverly Hills, Citrus Springs, Rainbow Springs and Dunnellon. In September, Golden Rain Tree will burst into flower. Thousands of bright yellow blossoms cover the crown at a time few other flowering trees are in bloom. Like most plants, the flowering season lasts only three to four weeks. As flowers fade, the masses of flowers form thousands of pretty-colored pink, papery seed cases. Each contains many viable seeds that are not used as food by many native birds or wildlife. Seeds drop to the ground and are carried into natural areas nearby where they sprout by the thousands. The midgreen, pinnate leaves turn deep, golden yellow, then brown before falling off at about the same time as the flowers fade. The pink pods then become a prominent feature. The Koelreuteriagenus has only three species. Pride of China, also called Chinese Flame Tree, K. bipinata, grows in zones 8 to 11. The light yellowgreen bipinnate leaves darken to deep golden yellow in the fall. Flowers are bright yellow blotched with scarlet at the base. The inflated, papery seed pods are green at first then turn pink when ripe. They resemble Chinese lanterns and can be dried for flower arrangements. Flame Tree is not as common as Golden Rain Tree locally. Flamegold Tree, K. elegans, from Taiwan, zones 9-11, is more popular in subtropical South Florida. Growing 40 feet tall, it has a flat top and ferny compound leaves. Fall flowers are yellow in pannicles near the ends of the branches. The bladderlike seed pods have three sections, and are bright pink for about three or four weeks before turning brown. If one of these trees is used as a specimen in a tree ring surrounded by a wide lawn, the seedlings are easily mowed. Within a mulched tree ring, which protects the trunk and bark from mowers and weed string trimmers, seedlings can be sprayed with a 5 percent solution of glyphosate herbicide. Glyphosate is a nonrestricted herbicide that enters the plant leaves, relocates to the roots and kills most green plants. It does not leach into the subsoil or down into our Antiques Roadshow on PBS.

Dear John: Are you able to tell me the value of Limoges china? I just inherited it from my mother and know that it is antique, but have not been able to find out the value of it. I would like to sell it. I can submit a picture once I know you are able to assist me. S.B., InternetDear S.B.: There are numerous china manufacturers in Limoges, France. In order to help you, I need good, clear photographs of your china. On the back of each piece there will makers marks; make sure you include that information. Dear John: My uncle left me a coin collection. I have no interest in collecting coins. Almost all the coins are American. There are a lot of coin buyers in my area. I intend to sell the collection. Who do you suggest I speak with about selling the collection? I listen to your radio show and read your Sunday column in theChronicle. Thank you for your help. F.C.C., Internet Dear F.C.C.: I have no experience with buying and selling coins. A short while ago, one of our listeners called the radio show and recommended www.coinstudy.com, a website on coin collecting. I checked it out and it is an excellent site. This is where you should begin. The site will inform you about potential collector interest and dollar values. Then you will have a good idea of potential dollar value and can shop around to multiple coin buyers.John Sikorski has been a professional in the antiques business for 30 years.

GREEN CT. 3/2/2 712775 $169,900 Associated PressRALEIGH, N.C. A Superior Court judge saif Thursday a local board was wrong to halt construction of a modern home in a historic neighborhood in Raleigh. Architect Louis Cherry and his wife, Marsha Gordon, had nearly completed their 2,100-square-foot house in Raleighs Historic Oakwood District when the citys Board of Adjustment revoked their certificate of appropriateness in February. Real estate agent Gail Wiesner, who lives across the street, had filed a complaint saying the contemporary interpretation of a Craftsman-style house was garishly inappropriate for Oakwood. The case sparked national debate over the issue of new building in historic neighborhoods, and split the residents. Judge Elaine Bushfan wrote in a memo released Thursday that Wiesner had no standing to file the complaint in the first place. The board used the incorrect standard of review and reweighed the evidence and substituted their own judgment for that of the Raleigh Historic Development Commission, Bushfan wrote. Therefore, the BOA committed reversible error. Wiesner said she plans to appeal the decision despite being the target of ridicule. Im a grown-up. ... Im not the least bit influenced by things like that, said Wiesner, who argues that proper procedures were not followed when the construction was approved last September. Gordon and Cherry thanked those from all over the country who have offered their financial and emotional support during these months, and extended an olive branch to their neighbor. We can now move into a period of healing, they wrote in an email to The Associated Press. With this legal battle behind us, lets be good neighbors to each other and focus on the things that make Oakwood the dynamic, diverse, and wonderful neighborhood that it is. First developed following the Civil War, Oakwood is an eclectic mix of 19th and early 20th century architectural styles. Neighbors formed the historic district in the 1970s to fight a proposed highway.

Maybe we set it up with an air bed once in a while for guests, or shove out-of-season clothing boxes in there, or use it as a holding zone for stuff were not sure what to do with. But when your house is on the market, every room has a role to play to make the sale. Next to fixing whatevers broken, staging decorating rooms in an inviting way to help people imagine living in them is important. The purpose of home staging is to draw the buyers into the house emotionally so they say, Wow, we want to live here! says Melinda Bartling, a real-estate agent and home stager in Overland Park, Kansas. Buyers must be able to see themselves living in the house, not questioning why it looks the way it does. For example, if you use your finished basement as a catch-all, buyers will wonder whats wrong with the space. New York-based realestate agent Nathalie Clarks motto is minimalism with personality. The owners presence must be as discreet as possible, but the rooms have to feel inhabited and should clearly state their function, she says. Some ideas from stagers on what to do with an unused space:Make it a closetEveryone wants good storage. Turn a potential shortcoming into a valuable feature by transforming a small room into a See SPACE/ Page E10 A small closet usually says no storage, but if you show it as a childrens closet, youve created instant charm with a clever solution.

But when your house is on the market, every room has a role to play to make the sale. Next to fixing whatevers broken, staging decorating rooms in an inviting way to help people imagine living in them is important. The purpose of home staging is to draw the buyers into the house emotionally so they say, Wow, we want to live here! says Melinda Bartling, a real-estate agent and home stager in Overland Park, Kansas. Buyers must be able to see themselves living in the house, not questioning why it looks the way it does. For example, if you use your finished basement as a catch-all, buyers will wonder whats wrong with the space. New York-based realestate agent Nathalie Clarks motto is minimalism with personality. The owners presence must be as discreet as possible, but the rooms have to feel inhabited and should clearly state their function, she says. Some ideas from stagers on what to do with an unused space:Make it a closetEveryone wants good storage. Turn a potential shortcoming into a valuable feature by transforming a small room into a See SPACE/ Page E10 A small closet usually says no storage, but if you show it as a childrens closet, youve created instant charm with a clever solution.

Golden Rain Tree,Koelreuteria paniculata, originally from China and Korea, zones 4-10, is a slowgrowing tree that can reach 30 to 50 feet tall, with a spread of 25 to 30 feet. It was a popular landscape plant back in the midto late-20th century. There are many fine examples in older neighborhoods of Beverly Hills, Citrus Springs, Rainbow Springs and Dunnellon. In September, Golden Rain Tree will burst into flower. Thousands of bright yellow blossoms cover the crown at a time few other flowering trees are in bloom. Like most plants, the flowering season lasts only three to four weeks. As flowers fade, the masses of flowers form thousands of pretty-colored pink, papery seed cases. Each contains many viable seeds that are not used as food by many native birds or wildlife. Seeds drop to the ground and are carried into natural areas nearby where they sprout by the thousands. The midgreen, pinnate leaves turn deep, golden yellow, then brown before falling off at about the same time as the flowers fade. The pink pods then become a prominent feature. The Koelreuteriagenus has only three species. Pride of China, also called Chinese Flame Tree, K. bipinata, grows in zones 8 to 11. The light yellowgreen bipinnate leaves darken to deep golden yellow in the fall. Flowers are bright yellow blotched with scarlet at the base. The inflated, papery seed pods are green at first then turn pink when ripe. They resemble Chinese lanterns and can be dried for flower arrangements. Flame Tree is not as common as Golden Rain Tree locally. Flamegold Tree, K. elegans, from Taiwan, zones 9-11, is more popular in subtropical South Florida. Growing 40 feet tall, it has a flat top and ferny compound leaves. Fall flowers are yellow in pannicles near the ends of the branches. The bladderlike seed pods have three sections, and are bright pink for about three or four weeks before turning brown. If one of these trees is used as a specimen in a tree ring surrounded by a wide lawn, the seedlings are easily mowed. Within a mulched tree ring, which protects the trunk and bark from mowers and weed string trimmers, seedlings can be sprayed with a 5 percent solution of glyphosate herbicide. Glyphosate is a nonrestricted herbicide that enters the plant leaves, relocates to the roots and kills most green plants. It does not leach into the subsoil or down into our Antiques Roadshow on PBS.

I would like to sell it. I can submit a picture once I know you are able to assist me. S.B., InternetDear S.B.: There are numerous china manufacturers in Limoges, France. In order to help you, I need good, clear photographs of your china. On the back of each piece there will makers marks; make sure you include that information.

GREEN CT. 3/2/2 712775 $169,900 Associated PressRALEIGH, N.C. A Superior Court judge saif Thursday a local board was wrong to halt construction of a modern home in a historic neighborhood in Raleigh. Architect Louis Cherry and his wife, Marsha Gordon, had nearly completed their 2,100-square-foot house in Raleighs Historic Oakwood District when the citys Board of Adjustment revoked their certificate of appropriateness in February. Real estate agent Gail Wiesner, who lives across the street, had filed a complaint saying the contemporary interpretation of a Craftsman-style house was garishly inappropriate for Oakwood. The case sparked national debate over the issue of new building in historic neighborhoods, and split the residents. Judge Elaine Bushfan wrote in a memo released Thursday that Wiesner had no standing to file the complaint in the first place. The board used the incorrect standard of review and reweighed the evidence and substituted their own judgment for that of the Raleigh Historic Development Commission, Bushfan wrote. Therefore, the BOA committed reversible error. Wiesner said she plans to appeal the decision despite being the target of ridicule. Im a grown-up. ... Im not the least bit influenced by things like that, said Wiesner, who argues that proper procedures were not followed when the construction was approved last September. Gordon and Cherry thanked those from all over the country who have offered their financial and emotional support during these months, and extended an olive branch to their neighbor. We can now move into a period of healing, they wrote in an email to The Associated Press. With this legal battle behind us, lets be good neighbors to each other and focus on the things that make Oakwood the dynamic, diverse, and wonderful neighborhood that it is. First developed following the Civil War, Oakwood is an eclectic mix of 19th and early 20th century architectural styles. Neighbors formed the historic district in the 1970s to fight a proposed highway.

large closet or dressing room. Install a shelving system; if moneys an issue, just outfit one long wall to achieve the purpose. Add a chair or ottoman and a large mirror, perhaps, so buyers can imagine a dressing room. If your home is short on storage, consider outfitting an under-stair niche or other dead space with shelving, and stock the shelves with smart-looking boxes and bins. But leave some empty space in a closet, too. Closets filled with items other than clothes send the message there isnt enough storage in the house, says Bartling.Make it creativeTransform a bedroom with a tiny closet into creative workspace. Suggest a craft or art studio with a table and some neatly displayed materials. Line up a series of identical bookshelves and make a small yet inviting library by adding a rug, a comfortable chair and a side table.Make it an officeReal-estate agents tend to prefer that bedrooms be staged as bedrooms, because buyers usually want lots of those. But depending on your market, it may pay off to stage one of those rooms as a home office. If youve got more than four bedrooms, Clark says, turn one into a home office. In a four-bedroom home, use the room farthest from a bathroom, she advises. Add a desk, chair and lamp, and lay down a fresh new rug in either a chic neutral hue or a style-savvy pattern that ties it into neighboring rooms.Make it a workout spaceEmpty nesters often have basements that once were playrooms. Clark suggests converting a space like that into a cozy TV room or gym. For a gym, you dont need a lot of fancy equipment, she says. A bench, some neatly stacked weights, a few ropes or bands hung on pretty hooks, a mirror and a mat can all easily be arranged to create a powerful visual effect.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER14, 2014E11 E6SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER14, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000JAG7 EVELYN SURRENCY REALTOR CELL 352-634-1861 OFFICE 352-795-0021 FAX 352-795-1323 evelyn.surrency49@gmail.com www.evelynsurrency.com EACH OFFICE IS INDEPENDENTLY OWNED AND OPERATED NATURE COAST 835 NE Highway 19, Crystal River, FL 34429 YOUR WATERFRONT DESTINATION 4 Homes t o Choose From MLS #711206 $695,900 MLS #712846 $253,500 MLS #704254 $295,000 MLS #712819 $195,000 C ARL M ANUCCI 352-302-9787 S USAN M ULLEN 352-422-2133 000J9DK TERRA VISTA & BRENTWOOD Rentals Needed (T ERMS 6 MONTHS OR LONGER ) DETACHED VILLA 3 BED, 2 BATH, 2 CAR POOL Malibu Model 3 bedroom 2 bath 2 car garage. 14 x 28 self cleaning POOL with pavers in the lanai.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac also said Thursday the average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, slipped to 3.24 percent from 3.25 percent. At its 52-week low of 4.10 percent, the rate on a 30-year mortgage is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Federal Reserve has been trimming its monthly bond purchases, which are intended to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The purchases are set to end in October. The low rates appear to have boosted U.S. home sales. Also, moderating increases in home prices such as occurred in July should help support sales by making homes more affordable. Real-estate data provider CoreLogic reported Tuesday that home prices rose in July but at a slower rate compared with earlier this year. Greater affordability has helped the housing market recover over the spring and summer after sales and construction fell earlier this year. Sales of existing homes rose for a fourth straight month in July to their strongest pace in nine months. And a measure of signed contracts also increased in July, suggesting that final sales will rise further in coming months. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was 0.5 point, unchanged from last week. The fee for a 15-year mortgage fell to 0.5 point from 0.6 point. Evaluating paintings; advice on auctioning jade items Dear John: We have the two paintings in the photos, given to us long ago. They are signed A.B. Brandies. What can you tell us about the artist and what they might be worth? A.S., Internet Dear A.S.: The artist A.B. Brandies was born in 1849 and lived until 1920. He is listed as Austrian Italian. He painted genre scenes, figures, and Italian scenes. I think your two paintings would sell in the $1,000 range each. Dear John: I often listen to your radio show on WUFT and enjoy your column. I have sent some photos of some things. I am in a bind as far as the value. As far as the jade pieces, they are all old. I am not sure how old, but likely 30 to 40 years old. What would be the value of these lovely jade fruits and flowers? They are mounted on blue thread-wrapped wire. I am not sure if they might have been a sort of arranged fruit display. I found this in a thrift shop. The store owner guessed them to be glass, but I was sure they were jade. Between $6 and $8 each is what I paid. I paid $200 for the Buddha way back in 1985. I do not know what the values are today, but I have heard that the Chinese are interested in buying and returning their art to their country. I contacted an auction company, but do not know their ethics. I am very grateful for any advice as to selling and dealing with these middlemen. I would like to contact a reputable auction house that will not sucker punch me! Thank you so much.

Invite animals that can do your pest management. That will actually increase your yields in many cases. Almost any wildlife species can become a nuisance, Pierce said. Canada goose droppings are messy and potential health hazards. Moles damage lawns. Squirrels eat freshly planted bulbs. Small rodents such as voles will strip the bark from grapevines. Feral hogs damage pastures. Tolerance levels var y, Pierce said. Lots of folks just enjoy wildlife and like having them around. Much depends upon whether you have the money to invest to keep them away from your plants. The most benign ways to keep wildlife away from the garden include repellents, frightening techniques, rotating crops, decoy plants, fencing, netting and other barriers. Consider:Being proactive. Before the raspberries ripen, put up some tape or nets so the birds will never taste them and wont know what theyre missing, Hartung said.Modifying food and cover We have 30 deer coming through our property every day, she said. The deer wouldnt leave my tulips alone, so I dont grow tulips anymore. I grow (deer-resistant) daffodils instead.Distractions. Parsley redirects rabbits from salad greens, Hartung said. Plant some sunflowers next to your berry patch. Many birds prefer their seeds to the fruit.Growing a surplus for sharing. Add hedgerows outside the garden that include fruiting trees and shrubs.The hose. We use a motiondetector apparatus that hooks up to a hose, Hartung said. It sprays water when it detects motion. When raccoons come at night, they get a hard spray of water. It doesnt do them any harm but they stay away. Wildlife-friendly gardening has its challenges, but you can co-exist for the most part, she said. Something like a bear may show up and youll have to deal with it, Hartung said. Maybe then its as easy as picking up some fallen fruit and discarding it someplace else. You dont really need to trap animals, use toxic chemicals or shoot them, she said. You can find other solutions. WILDLIFEContinued from Page E4 GOT A NEWS TIP? The Chronicle welcomes tips from readers about breaking news.

DEAN FOSDICK/Associated PressRabbits may make cute pets but many, like this cottontail one in a Langley, Wash., yard, can eat their way through flower beds and vegetablegardens. If fencing doesnt keep them out, then try distracting them. A row of parsley, for example, can redirect rabbits from a crop of salad greens.

DEANFOSDICK Associated PressCompetition and conflict have existed between people and animals since the first gardeners began sowing seeds on the ground. The critters just as quickly carried them away. But coexisting with wildlife in farm fields or gardens can be a winning proposition if youre willing to alter your habitat. Even nuisance animals can become plant partners with a little planning. You can steer your way around a lot of the usual wildlife-property owner confrontations, said Robert Pierce, an extension fisheries and wildlife specialist with the University of Missouri. Do some homework about animal behavior, Pierce said. Know where raccoons or deer traditionally utilize cover or use traffic lanes. Its common sense that you wouldnt want to plant gardens in those areas. And sharing property with wild birds and animals doesnt necessarily mean reducing the size of your harvest, said Tammi Hartung, author of the new The WildlifeFriendly Vegetable Gardener (Storey Publishing).CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER14, 2014E13 E4SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER14, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE CALL Roy Bass TODAY (352) 726-2471 CALL Roy Bass TODAY (352) 726-2471 After Hours (352) 302-6714 All Citrus Realty INC All Citrus Realty INC Email: roybass@tampabay.rr.com www.allcitrusrealty.com 000JAHO OPEN LAKEFRONT-HERNANDO FL 1/2 acre on the lake.

Associated PressYORK, Maine Lighthouses for sale! Actually, lots of lighthouses for free. Technological advances and a desire to purge unneeded properties have paved the way for the federal government to get rid of more than 100 lighthouses over the past 14 years, and it intends to keep selling and giving them away. The sold lighthouses, located on both coasts and in the Great Lakes states, have become everything from museums to bed-and-breakfasts. Dave Waller, who purchased the Graves Island Light Station in the mouth of Boston Harbor for a record $933,888 last year, is retrofitting the turn-of-the-century lighthouse into a private home that can double as a vacation rental. Hes trying to fashion a bedroom as far as possible from the foghorn a challenging feat in a building with about 750 feet of livable space. It just seemed like a chance to have something a little more independent and on your own, Waller said. Sixty-eight of the lighthouses have gone for free to preservationists while 36 others sold at public auction thanks to the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act of 2000, which allows the government to dispose of federally-owned lighthouses. The act turns 14 next month. The Coast Guard, which maintains lighthouses, has 71 other lighthouses queued up to go through the transfer process, and four are at auction now. The Coast Guard owns 254 light houses, officials said. The question is more about which ones it will keep than which ones it will eventually sell, said Jeff Gales, executive director of the non-profit U.S. Lighthouse Society. There is an end in sight, Gales aquifer as it dissipates within a few days. Read and follow the label directions on any chemical. Responsible gardeners always monitor neighboring properties and nearby natural areas for stray alien plants that may grow to disrupt local ecosystems. Golden Rain Tree is not yet on the FLEPPC invasive list for Florida. If there is enough lawn and garden area to control the seedlings and the maintenance required is acceptable, this species is sometimes available from small private nurseries or from neighbors. The prolific seeding has made Golden Rain Tree less popular in the 21st century.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant. Semi-retired, she grows thousands of native plants.

said. Theres a limited number of lighthouses. The federal General Services Administration, which sells the lighthouses, does not have a target number of how many lighthouses it would like to sell and give away, but the Coast Guard is always looking to shed excess lighthouses that are often no longer critical to the guards work, said Patrick Sclafani, a spokesman for the agency. Buyers and preservationists typically allow the Coast Guard access to the lighthouses so it can maintain the lights, all of which are automated. The administration is the nearing the end of an online auction for the Halfway Rock Light Station off of Harpswell, Maine. The lighthouse is attracting interest, with a half dozen bidders and a high bid of more than $240,000. Thats a good figure for a lighthouse that is only accessible by boat, a feature that frequently drives bidders away, Gales said. Some of the lighthouses typically those that are easily accessed on land are transferred swiftly to historic preservation groups, while others that are off-shore or in need of heavy maintenance languish on the auction block with no interested bidders. Still others attract the eye of private investors, such as Bostons Waller. Officials say the GSAs Boston office has been responsible for about 80 percent of lighthouse conveyances and those transfers have netted $3.35 million for the Coast Guard. That office closed out an auction of New Englands tallest lighthouse, the Boon Island Light Station off of York, Maine, in August with a top bid of $78,000 out of 12 bidders. Winning bidder Art Girard of Portland, Maine, will inherit the 133-foot lighthouse and a challenge: it is located on an isolated, rocky island six miles off the Maine coast, barely salient from Cape Neddick in York. The government also is currently auctioning lighthouses in Massachusetts, Michigan and Wisconsin.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER14, 2014E15 E2SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER14, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 2421 N.
