Coming up with a strong common brand to market the county to potential visitors has been priority of the Tourist Development Council (TDC) for the past two years. Previous discussion has been critical of the countys existing logo for being too cluttered and without a clear destination message for tourists. Several earlier attempts faltered, so the council went out for proposals in June with a $60,000 budget to have an outside company take on the job, subject to approval by the county commission. The Zimmerman Agency, an advertising and public relations firm, was ranked highest among the six companies that responded. Proposals were scored by five evaluators working independently, with price being the mostweighted category. Zimmerman came in the lowest at $55,000. They are going to rebrand Citrus County, said Adam Thomas, interim director of the countys Visitors and Convention Bureau. They will do a whole campaign for the county.

In the past 10 years, the event has raised more than $825,000 to support the fight against cancer, including $72,000 last year. However, fundraising to fight cancer hasnt ceased in Citrus County, it will just be different, said Theressa Foster, 2014 Citrus County Cattle Barons Ball chairwoman. Theres been a change in the whole environment of giving to not-for-profits in Citrus County, she said. Its all about staying local.

Local churches try to create a feeling of belonging for elderly members who may be disconnected from family up north. Lawyers and accountants make house calls like doctors. Elderly residents get ferried to stores by a fleet of county minivans. Welcome to Citrus County, Florida, where more than a third of residents are senior citizens, one of the highest rates in the nation. The county isnt simply a stereotype of Florida, where in just 15 years, one in four residents will be 65 or older. Its a peek into the not-too-distant future of the nation, where the number will be one in five. In Citrus County, health care dominates the labor force. Residents prefer to get their news from a newspaper. Strip malls have an unusually high number of hearing aid businesses. The library offers Medicaid planning seminars. Voters turn out in large numbers, albeit often by absentee ballot. Having such a high concentration of elderly citizens has its trade-offs. You get an engaged citizenry with high voter turnout and volunteerism, but also an economy based on lowskill jobs such as healthcare aides, retail clerks and food service workers. Senior citizens who move into an area generally arent eager to fund schools, research shows, whereas those who remain in the communities where they worked and raised their families tend to support education and other public spending that doesnt benefit them directly. Citrus County voters lived up to that thesis as recently as two years ago when they decisively rejected a referendum to raise property taxes to fund schools. The countys elderly makeup sometimes has made it difficult to attract workers with young families to fill those service jobs, said Tobey Phillips, a county spokeswoman.

The company is expected to make a presentation at the November TDC meeting with the actual branding process taking six to nine months. The council voted unanimously to proceed. The bureau is also planning to expand its marketing efforts in the coming fiscal year by increasing its online content and contracting for a Bright House Weather Cam, which would be located in Crystal River. The two-year agreement at $75,000 annually includes the camera, which will be show images from Crystal River during weather broadcasts, plus online and television advertising using both Bay New 9 and News 13 in Orlando. Similar Bright House cameras are used at Tarpon Springs, St. Pete Beach and Tampa International Airport. The Plantation on Crystal River has a sky cam with WFLA NBC 8 of Tampa, which general manager Michael Mancke said has contributed to the resorts growth. Its a great idea, he said. What this area needs is eyeballs and awareness. Lets start telling them where we are TV does get you the most eyeballs. The TDC voted to approve the increased advertising budget. To help attract more international visitors, Adams and staff member Tara Tufo plan to attend the World Travel Market in London from Nov. 3 through 6 and the international tourism convention in March in Berlin.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty @chronicleonline.com. the money is staying local, especially with an event that raises six figures. Money raised locally for the American Cancer Society (ACS), including money raised for Relay for Life, goes to the national American Cancer Society, and funds are funneled to Citrus County as needed by local residents. In that way, local residents are not limited by locally raised funds and no one is denied help. We do have resources from ACS here; we have the office at CMH (Citrus Memorial hospital) and theres help for people needing transportation, Foster said, but Hope Lodge is not local, and with initiatives like the YMCA building a center here and the United Way keeping their funds here its very competitive for not-for-profits. Jewel Lamb, a longtime supporter of local nonprofit initiatives, including the Cattle Barons Ball, said people in the community like herself and her husband, Steve, want to know where their donated dollars are going and how theyre being used. With this economy, people are being better stewards of their donated dollars, Lamb said, adding that they support the Citrus Aid Cancer Foundation, founded by Dr. Joseph Bennett, a local oncologist, to help Citrus County cancer patients. Bennett said the Cattle Barons Ball in the past brought together a lot of people to support the American Cancer Society, but that ACS has shifted its focus more toward using funds for research. Thats not a bad thing, but we need help for our local patients, he said. So, seeing the void, I founded the Citrus Aid Cancer Foundation. Many of the individuals and businesses that supported the Cattle Barons Ball have now turned their support to Citrus Aid, and we are raising money that stays right here in the county to help our neighbors as they battle cancer. Foster said its time for the local ACS fundraising effort to take a new direction. Instead of a gala event where the sponsorships start at $10,000 and tickets are $150, perhaps there will be a Crush Out Cancer concert at Rock Crusher Canyon next year something completely different. Hernando and Pasco counties have also dissolved their Cattle Barons Ball, Foster said. Were trying to reinvent our event so the ticket prices arent so high and we can open the door for more people, while still being able to keep the same level of giving, Foster said. Plus, the ACS is still partnering with local oncologists, and now we have a local representative here in Citrus, which we havent had in quite a few years. And we have events for the two Relays for Life going on, as well as the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk in October, so were still raising money to fight cancer. That hasnt changed.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy @chronicleonline.com. aggravated battery. According to Lucas arrest report, a neighbor was awakened by the 37year-old victim wearing only her underwear early Sunday morning, asking him to drive her to her mothers house. The victim informed her neighbor that Lucas allegedly assaulted her sexually after he struck her when returning home with the defendant, according to the report. The neighbor reportedly observed several abrasions on the womans body and notified the womans mother of what her daughter told him. The victims mother also disclosed to authorities that she also noticed bruises on her daughter when they arrived at her house that morning. While interviewing the victim, investigators revealed that Lucas and the woman returned home and began to argue early Sunday morning. During the argument, the victim stated that she reportedly escaped the house after Lucas allegedly struck her repeatedly and sexually assaulted her.

Child car seat inspections available at two locations Special to the ChronicleThis is Child Passenger Safety Week, the goal of which is to make sure all parents and caregivers are properly securing all children in the right car seat or booster for the age and size of the child. Although parents want to keep their children safe at all times, keeping them safe in vehicles isnt as easy as it might appear, since an average of 4 out of 5 car seats are not used correctly. A childs vulnerability in avehicle crash is greater than that of most adults. In fact, motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of death for children ages 1 to 13 in the United States, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. From 2006 to 2010, there were 4,028 children age 12 and younger killed in car crashes as occupants, and about 660,000 were injured. That is why safety events like Child Passenger Safety Week, Sept. 14 to 20, are so important to help parents and caregivers learn how to choose the right type of car seat and how to use and install it correctly. For a car seat to best protect your child, it must be one that fits your child, fits your vehicle and is one you will use correctly every time you travel in your vehicle. So, where do parents and caregivers go for help to be sure they have it right? Citrus County now has two car seat inspection stations: one at the Early Learning Coalition of the Nature Coast near Crystal River and a second station in Whispering Pines Park, at the Sheriffs Community Resource Office. Car Seat check-ups are provided at no cost and by appointment. Certified child passenger safety technicians are available to provide hands-on car seat education and inspec tions. A 20-minute car seat check-up is painless, the advice and instruction are free, and it can save a childs life, said Sue Littnan, child passenger safety instructor at the Early Learning Coalition. During Child Passenger Safety Week, parents are urged to take the time to have their childs car seat checked. Parents and caregivers can also visit www. safercar.gov/therightseat for car seat tips and how-to videos for car seat installation, along with recommendations and recall information. To make an appointment for a car seat checkup or for more information, contact Sue Littnan at the Early Learning Coalition, 352-563-9939, ext. 235, or Michele Tewell at the Inverness Community Resource Office, 352560-6024. TDCContinued from Page A1 Inspector blasts asteroid program Associated PressCAPE CANAVERAL NASAs effort to identify potentially dangerous space rocks has taken a hit. On Monday, the space agencys inspector general released a report blasting NASAs Near Earth Objects program, which is meant to hunt and catalog comets, asteroids and relatively large fragments of these objects that pass within 28 million miles of Earth. The purpose is to protect the planet against their potential dangers. Most near-Earth objects harmlessly disintegrate before reaching Earths surface. But there are exceptions, like the nearly 60-foot meteor that exploded over Russia in 2013. In a 44-page report, Inspector General Paul Martin said the Near Earth Objects program needs to be better organized and managed, with a bigger staff. NASAs science mission chief, former astronaut John Grunsfeld, agreed and promised the problems will be fixed. For nearly a decade, the report noted, NASA has been tracking near-Earth objects bigger than 460 feet across. The goal was to catalog 90 percent by 2020. The program has insufficient oversight, Martins office concluded, and no established milestones to track progress.

From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A new report says a rising concentration of income among the nations richest households is a problem for Florida because it is one of 10 states most dependent on sales taxes. Florida has no state income tax and its major source of revenue is a 6 percent sales tax. The report by credit ratings agency Standard & Poors notes that the annual growth rate in the states sales tax has dropped dramatically over the last three decades. The annual average rate was 11.25 percent in the 1980s, but it has dropped since then and is averaging just below 2 percent since 2009. Most economic activity comes from consumer spending, a key driver of growth. But consumers have become increasingly reluctant to spend as median incomes have barely increased over three decades and remain lower than they were in 2007 when the Great Recession began. Floridas median family income, according to recent U.S. Census data, is about $46,000 a year. By contrast, the top 1 percent of earners has prospered for more than 30 years. Adjusted for inflation, their average incomes have nearly tripled to $1.26 million since 1979, according to the IRS. But S&P notes that wealthier individuals tend to spend less of their money, meaning that states are unlikely to see much of an increase in sales tax collections. The top 5 percent in Florida have an average income of nearly $307,000. Floridas own economists, however, continue to predict steady and sustained state revenue growth in the next several years. More recent numbers show that state taxes are now growing between 4 percent and 5 percent annually. They also say that the state is shielded because state coffers are dependent on tourists and a continued influx of retirees moving to the state. A new three-year financial outlook predicts that state legislators will have enough money to pay for schools and health care and still have a small surplus. Amy Baker, the coordinator of the states Office of Economic and Demographic Research, notes that as much as 15 percent of the states sales tax collections come from tourists. Florida economists also say that the wave of baby boomer retirements that began earlier this decade will also have a positive impact on the states coffers. Baker said that there will be a surge in spending as they move to the state. The state used to tax some of the wealth accrued by its residents. But that changed under former Gov. Jeb Bush, who served from 1999 to 2007. Bush eliminated the states intangibles tax, which placed a levy on stocks and other investments. Special to the ChronicleCitrus Countys Supervisor of Elections Susan Gill has announced that voter registration drives will take place at area high schools to register students and prepare first-time voters for the Nov. 4 general election. The schedule is as follows: Monday, Sept. 22 at Citrus High. Tuesday, Sept. 23 at Lecanto High. Wednesday, Sept. 24, at Crystal River High. During lunch period, students who are age 18 may register to vote and students who are 17 and 16 may pre-register. Students will learn how elections are conducted in the county; learn how they can vote by mail, early voting, and at the polls; learn when elections will take place; learn that you must be registered 29 days before an election to be eligible to vote (Oct. 6 is the deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 4 general election); and, learn how they can be a part of the elections process. Gill is encouraging students and school personnel to participate in this registration drive and take advantage of an exciting way to get registered to vote. Citrus 95 FM Radio has partnered with the elections office since 2006 to conduct the voter registration drives and help get the message out to students on the importance of voting. For more information call the elections office at 352-341-6740. Special to the ChronicleInterim County Administrator Jeff Rogers has announced that there will be five public workshops in October for the general public regarding the Cent for Citrus referendum on the Nov. 4 ballot. The 1 percent sales tax increase, if approved by voters, would provide funding for resurfacing and maintenance of all county-maintained, paved residential roadways. These workshops will provide citizens with information to make an informed decision. County staff will be at each meeting to answer questions and maps will be displayed to show recent road evaluations. 3 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 1 at Lake Region Library in Inverness. 2 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 8 at the West Citrus Community Center in Meadowcrest, east of Crystal River. 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 16 at Coastal Region Library, Crystal River. 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 22 Citrus Springs Community Center. 1 to 3 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 30 Central Ridge Community Center.

High school students: Get out, register to vote Cent for Citrus workshops slated PATFAHERTY Staff writerWe thought bigger was better, said Kylie Philipps, a senior at Citrus High School, as she surveyed the giant papiermch pig, still under construction. Hopefully, that will work to our advantage. Larger than many compact cars, the porcine replica is actually a functioning piggy bank to help raise money for St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital. Philipps is leading the local piggy bank project, part of a national effort by World Changers, an organization working to engage young people in leadership through social involvement. The piggy bank project began last year to raise funds and awareness of St. Jude hospital. A large bank was built and is touring to country to raise a penny a mile. Subsequently, students from across the country are being challenged to construct their own fundraising piggy banks. The entries will be judged in November on a variety of criteria including fundraising and community involvement with a $5,000 cash prize. What to do with the prize, should she win, is a no-brainer for Philipps shed donate it to St. Jude hospital. Mike Scott Plumbing helped out with materials and construction for the underlying invisible frame, which had to be strong enough to support the pig but light enough to move around. And to help give it a hide, Philipps turned to the students at Pleasant Grove Elementary, her old school. Last Wednesday, she transported the pig in progress out to the playground. During the day, various classes used their recess break to get pictures taken with the pig and each student got to lay on some papier-mch. And even more important, Philipps said, she got the opportunity to tell each class the purpose of the pig, what the Memphis, Tennessee-based hospital does and why constant fundraising is necessary. She also answered questions about the project and the pig itself. The students will also be involved with the fundraising. Principal Lynne Kirby explained that every year the school tries to select an area or something to help with a penny drive. This year those pennies will go into the pig. In addition to more layers of paper, the pig will get a final coating of pink paint, some sort of tail and be mounted on a cart. It will visit some other schools and make appearances at various community events. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Authorities have said the man suffered a deep cut which required 10 stitches. Jones said Daviss three-year sentence will be served concurrently with a 39-month federal firearms sentence he was given in August.

DAVIDCRARY AP national writerNEW YORK While many liberal policy goals have proved elusive during Barack Obamas presidency, there have been dramatic advances for two causes that once seemed quixotic the legalization of same-sex marriage and the decriminalization of marijuana. Neither cause was embraced by Obama during his first term. Yet he is now a fervent supporter of marriage equality and has said it is important that Colorado and Washington state be allowed to proceed with their pioneering laws, approved by voters in 2012, that legalize marijuana. For both issues, the pace of change has been striking. There are now 19 states that allow gay marriage, compared to two in 2008. Bans in the remaining states are being struck down by federal judges at a rapid rate that could presage a Supreme Court ruling legalizing it nationwide. As for marijuana, in November voters in Oregon, Alaska and the District of Columbia will weigh in on ballot measures that would emulate Colorado and Washington by legalizing recreational use of pot by adults. A ballot measure in Florida could add that state to the 23 others which have legalized medical use of marijuana, including 10 in the past four years. Whats distinctive about the marriage and marijuana campaigns is that theyve been able to proceed at the state level, unencumbered by the paralyzing gridlock in Congress. In contrast, efforts by Obama and his Democratic allies to overhaul the immigration system, tighten gun control laws, raise the federal minimum wage and combat climate change have run aground in the partisan divides on Capitol Hill. The paramount Obama initiative that did clear Congress his health care overhaul remains entangled in various controversies and its longterm legacy is uncertain. On immigration and many of the other issues, hes resorting to unilateral executive action, often angering his critics on the right while failing to fully satisfy activists on the left. Given those realities, Richard Socarides, a former Clinton White House adviser on gay rights, makes a case that same-sex marriage and other gayrights advances represent a singular achievement for progressives during the Obama presidency. Barack Obama has accomplished more progressive social change on gay rights than anything else, Socarides said. During his first term, Obama helped change military policy so gays could serve openly, but said his views on same-sex marriage were still evolving. Under constant pressure from gay-rights activists, he endorsed it in 2012, and since then his administration has moved aggressively to maximize federal recognition of married gay couples even in states that ban same-sex marriage. The reason why he has that record now is because, publicly and privately, we really held his feet to the fire, said Socarides, referring to the activists pressure. Obamas stance on marijuana is far more nuanced. Marijuana remains illegal under federal law, and the White House-run Office of National Drug Control Policy opposes its legalization whether for medicinal or recreational use. Yet in August 2013, addressing the developments in Colorado and Washington, the Justice Department said it would allow legalization efforts to proceed as long as states followed strict guidelines, including keeping pot away from minors. Obama, an acknowledged pot smoker in his younger days, subsequently told The New Yorker magazine that he doesnt view marijuana as any more dangerous than alcohol and explained his acceptance of the Colorado and Washington initiatives. Its important for it to go forward because its important for society not to have a situation in which a large portion of people have at one time or another broken the law and only a select few get punished, he told the magazine. Ethan Nadelmann, executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance and a leading critic of the socalled war on drugs, said such comments coupled with the Justice Departments 2013 memo have put Obama out in front of most congressmen and governors. I wouldnt call it bold, but it is significant, Nadel mann said of Obamas stance, which has paved the way for other states to consider joining the legalization movement. Nadelmann drew a contrast between the marijuana movement which he predicted would gain increasing bipartisan support and issues such as immigration and gun control where partisan divides are pronounced. Marijuana lies at a unique intersection, he said. Its a civil rights/civil liberties cause, and at the same time theres the emergence of a legal market that could be worth tens of billions of dollars. Neera Tanden of the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank, said the changes unfolding at the state level on marriage and marijuana reflect evolving public opinion and the growing influence of 18to 29-year-olds. Among millennials, support for gay marriage and legalized pot is stronger than for other age groups. You have a country that is diversifying, and at same time you have a House of Representatives that is kind of a block against the wishes of the rising majority, said Tanden, the CAPs president. Immigration reform passed the Senate, then hit a wall on the steps of the House. Renee BrittINGLISRenee Diane Britt, of Inglis, died Sept.3, 2014, under the care of Citrus Hospice.

Love & miss you Ann, Keith II & Wayne Statehood hearing for DC Associated PressWASHINGTON Congress is dusting off the notion of statehood for the District of Columbia for the first time in 21 years, but that doesnt mean residents of the nations capital are any closer to gaining representation on Capitol Hill. District leaders submitted glowing testimony in support of transforming most of the nations capital into the state of New Columbia at a hearing Monday afternoon. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid supports statehood for the District, and President Barack Obama said recently, Im for it. The Homeland Security Committee chairman who called the hearing, Democratic Sen. Tom Carper of Delaware, has secured 18 Senate co-sponsors for the bill. But he doesnt appear to have enough support from Democrats on his own committee to bring the bill to the Senate floor for a vote, and no further action on the bill is planned. My goal for this hearing is to educate a new generation of people about this injustice and restart the conversation about finding a more thoughtful solution, Carper said. Some Democrats who havent signed on are running for re-election in swing states, including Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana and Sen. Mark Pryor of Arkansas. In a political climate when coziness with Washington can lead to political defeat, vulnerable Democrats may not want to speak out on the statehood issue. In the Republican-led House, the issue is a non-starter. GOP statehood opponents often point out that the nations founders preferred keeping the nations capital as a federal district. But theres also an unavoidable political reality: Three out of four registered voters in the District are Democrats, while Republican registration languishes at 6 percent. Republicans arent likely to hand Democrats two new senators and an additional seat in the House. Here we are again debating this issue even though it has no chance of success in this chamber and is dead on arrival in the House, said Sen. Tom Coburn, an Oklahoma Republican, who added that a constitutional amendment would be necessary to correct the injustice of the lack of representation for District residents. Despite such opposition, District boosters said the hearing was a positive step and that the city is in a strong position to push for statehood. The fast-growing District has 646,000 residents more than Vermont or Wyoming a booming economy and a municipal government that, while still plagued by corruption, has delivered nearly 20years of balanced budgets. The effort to give the District full representation in Congress has moved in fits and starts over past four decades. In 1978, Congress approved a constitutional amendment, but it was ratified by only 16 states. The last time a statehood bill came up for a vote was 1993, when it was defeated in the House, and momentum for the issue stalled. Since then, Washington has enjoyed population growth, plummeting crime and surging property values. Associated PressDistrict of Columbia Mayor Vincent C. Gray prepares to testify Monday before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs at a hearing onstatehoodfor the of Columbia on Capitol Hill in Washington.

for almost a third of all jobs in the county. Its kind of a Catch-22, Phillips said. We need people to be working in these industries, but we cant get them here sometimes because its primarily an elderly community. Employers see that every day. Mike Arthur, who runs a staffing service that provides health care workers for institutions and individual homes, said he looks for workers who are compassionate and patient when hiring, given the elderly makeup of his clientele. Maureen Locher makes sure there are plenty of homemade cookies, fresh coffee and cheese spread at the hearing aid center she runs. The local First Presbyterian Church has struggled to maintain membership as congregants either die or move back north to spend their last years near relatives. Changes that might attract younger families for the almost 500member congregation often meet resistance. One term that has been used for a church like ours is a hospice church, and thats a pretty bleak deal but may be realistic, said Jim Capps, interim pastor. Its not bad thing, but the problem with that is youre facing extinction. Baby boomers and other coming crops of seniors will be more tech-savvy. But at the library in Citrus County, large-print books are popular, and library staffers have become the de facto tutors on new technology. The library offers classes on basic software such as Microsoft Word and Excel and is developing a social media class after getting requests for it, said Eric Head, director of library services. Citrus County became a retirement mecca in the 1980s with the development of the Beverly Hills and Citrus Hills housing communities in former citrus groves. Marketing of the developments was geared toward empty nesters from the Northeast. Boston Red Sox legend Ted Williams came to Citrus Hills in the late 1980s and was known to fish regularly in the nearby Gulf of Mexico. They came down here when they were maybe in their late 50s, and now theyre in their 80s and 90s, said Pat Coles, who runs county services for seniors. Citrus County is one of eight counties stretching round the Orlando and Tampa metro areas in a band that might be called the Gray Belt. It has among the oldest populations in the nation, not to mention in Florida, which has long had the highest rate of seniors in the nation, and will for decades yet. The others include Marion, Martin, Indian River, Highlands, Sarasota, Charlotte and Sumter counties, the last of which is home to the largest concentration of seniors of any county in the nation thanks to the retirement community called The Villages, northwest of Orlando. By 2030, seniors in these counties, which are overwhelmingly white, will make up anywhere from a third to half of the residents. North Dakota, Texas and Michigan have pockets of seniors on par with the Gray Belt counties in Florida. But unlike the Florida counties, which have grown from the migration of new seniors, they have gotten grayer as a result of younger residents leaving. The demographic makeup of these eight Florida counties contrasts starkly with the states younger and more diverse major metro areas, such as South Florida, Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville, and the interests of Gray Belt residents will diverge politically, socially and economically from Floridas more youthful cities. Residents in the younger areas will want state investments in education, transportation and infrastructure. Not so much for residents in the Gray Belt, said University of Florida economist David Denslow. Senior citizens arent going to care quite as much about education. Theyre not going to care quite as much about congestion in rush hour, Denslow said. Its going to make it harder for local governments and the state to fund things. Since voting power will tilt in favor of the older residents because of their higher voter-participation rates, the key to keeping both sides happy is to devolve all kinds of governmental decisions on taxes, planning and education from the state level to the local level so that residents in areas with both high and low concentrations of seniors will feel like their voices are being heard, Denslow said. Id rather have some portions of the state in places that are younger able to set their own path and not have it set for them by retirees, Denslow said. It would be good to let these cities where the need for public spending is greater go their own way.

Judge: Lawsuit in Petraeus scandal can proceed Associated PressWASHINGTON A federal judge ruled Monday that a Florida woman can pursue her lawsuit alleging the government invaded her privacy in the scandal over former CIA director David Petraeus. U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said Jill Kelley of Tampa can move ahead with claims that the FBI and Defense Department violated her privacy when officials leaked information about her to the news media. The ruling does not deal with the merits of the case, but as the lawsuit proceeds, it could reveal more about the role various government agencies played as the scandal unfolded two years ago. In 2012, Kelley complained to the FBI when an unknown person sent her harassing emails. Her complaint triggered a criminal investigation that led agents to Paula Broadwell, who was Petraeus biographer and had been having an affair with him. Kelleys name and some of the harassing emails were leaked to the news media amid the sensational disclosures about Petraeus, a former Army general. The leaks also linked Marine Gen. John Allen, the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, as being under investigation for allegedly inappropriate communications with Kelley. According to court filings by Kelleys lawyers, the government falsely told one news outlet the emails between Allen and Kelley were the equivalent of phone sex. The lawyers argued that given the prurient nature of the investigation and the other woman narrative propounded by the leakers, it was likely that Kelleys treatment was motivated by sexual discrimination. The Pentagons inspector general exonerated Allen, who subsequently retired. Jackson on Monday threw out more than a dozen allegations in the lawsuit filed by Kelley and her husband, Scott, but allowed a single claim to move forward a charge that the FBI and Defense Department violated the Privacy Act. The act is a post-Watergate law designed to protect people from unwarranted invasions of privacy by federal agencies that maintain sensitive information about them. Providing information to the media is not among the list of permissible disclosures listed in the Privacy Act, Jackson wrote. While it may prove to be the case that the media sensationalized the facts and seasoned its coverage of these events with sexual innuendo on its own, plaintiffs do point to several press accounts that identify the sources as unnamed government or military officials. Among the claims tossed out were allegations against individual officials including then-defense secretary Leon Panetta, former deputy FBI director Sean Joyce and two FBI agents. In a statement, Kelley said she and her husband are pleased with the judges decision. We have asked our attorneys to move forward quickly with discovery, to uncover the relevant facts and motivations from all the government officials involved, she said. Justice Department spokeswoman Nicole Navas declined to comment. In court papers, Justice Department lawyers said Kelley has failed to present any facts suggesting the FBI and the Pentagon flagrantly disregarded her privacy rights. Associated PressU.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said Jill Kelley can press her claim that the FBI and Defense Department violated her privacy when officials allegedly leaked information about her to the news media.

New Yorks attorney general filed a federal lawsuit Monday seeking to stop a manufacturer from discontinuing its drug widely used to treat Alzheimers patients, arguing the company is illegally driving patients to its newer patented drug to avoid losses from cheaper generic alternatives coming out next year. Attorney General Eric Schneiderman alleges antitrust and state law violations by Dublin-based Actavis PLC and New York subsidiary Forest Laboratories, which Actavis recently acquired for $28 billion. The company said its new drug which is taken once daily instead of twice is better, that a majority of caregivers surveyed recommend it and that demand has been growing. Asked about the lawsuit, spokesman David Belian said the company doesnt comment on pending litigation. The manufacturer has announced plans to withdraw Namenda, which generated $1.5 billion revenues in its most recent fiscal year. The company said in June that it had already convinced 40 percent of patients and prescribing physicians to switch to the newer Namenda XR. However, Schneiderman said the company is manipulating vulnerable patients to mainly protect profits. His lawsuit seeks an injunction to stop their unlawful scheme, disgorgement of related profits, plus penalties and legal costs. The manufacturers exclusive right to sell the earlier drug in the U.S. expires in July. State officials expect the $8 to $10 daily cost will drop by about 80 percent then but say patients switching now to the new daily drug are less likely to switch to cheaper twice-daily generics next year. Unfortunately, schemes to block competition, without considering the consequences to patients, are a growing trend in the health care industry, Schneiderman said. By standing up to Actavis, were sending a clear message to all pharmaceutical companies: Prioritizing profits over patients rights will not be tolerated. Alzheimers disease affects more than 5 million Americans. Common symptoms are memory loss, difficulty doing familiar tasks, disorientation and mood swings. Symptoms often progress and theres no known cure, though the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved five drugs that may alleviate symptoms memantine, marketed as Namenda, a receptor antagonist, and four others that function differently and can be taken along with it. Purely to squeeze every last dollar out of their Namenda franchise, and with no concern about the effects that its forced switch could have on the highly vulnerable Alzheimers patient population, defendants are substituting their own, profit-driven motives for the judgment of physicians and patients, the court complaint said.
Minecraft could boost Microsofts mobile reachNEW YORK Microsofts decision to spend $2.5billion for the creator of the hit game Minecraft could help the Xbox maker grab attention on mobile phones, a new priority for the company. But the move carries risks, as gamers can be fickle. Although the Lego-like multiplayer game is currently the top paid app for the iPhone and Android devices in the U.S., todays popular hit could be tomorrows dud. The maker of the much obsessed-over Candy Crush Saga, for example, rode the games popularity to go public this year, only to see its stock falter.GM expert says 19 deaths eligible for compensationDETROIT The death toll tied to faulty ignition switches in General Motors small cars has risen to 19, according to a compensation expert hired by the company. The number is likely to go higher. Kenneth Feinberg said Monday that he has determined that 19 wrongful death claims are eligible for payments from GM. General Motors estimate of deaths has stood at 13 for months, although the automaker acknowledged the possibility of a higher count.Once-troubled reverse mortgages poised for reboundWASHINGTON Advertised as a path to an affordable retirement, federally insured reverse mortgages are showing signs of a rebound, drawing the scrutiny of regulators seeking to reduce historically high default rates that have cost the governmentbillions. Industry analysts expect strong growth as the housing market improves, particularly in once hard-hit Sun Belt areas including Phoenix, Miami and San Diego, California, and aging Americans find value in growing old in their homes. They are also being boosted by high-appreciation, gentrifying neighborhoods in older cities such as New Yorks Brooklyn borough.Speculation swirls over Fed language on rate hikeWASHINGTON When the Federal Reserve issues a policy statement after it meets this week, the financial world will be on high alert for two words: Considerable time. The presence or absence of that phrase will trigger a rush to assess the likely timing of the Feds first increase in interest rates since it cut them to record lows in 2008. The Feds recent statements have said it expects to keep its key short-term rate near zero for a considerable time after it stops buying Treasurys and mortgage bonds. Those bond purchases have been intended to keep long-term rates down to support the economy. But the purchases are set to end in November, so the Fed may soon see the need to use some phrasing other than considerable time to signify when it might start raising rates. It could sub out that phrase in this weeks statement. Or it could wait until its next meeting in October.Why hire? French confront reasons for malaisePARIS Marc Winocour and his two sons have enjoyed some success transforming the family farm into a field-to-table company that includes bread ovens, delivery trucks and a boutique. Revenues are climbing more than 50percent a year. But even as customer interest grows, adding new employees to their team of 10 is a decision of last resort. For French business owners like them, the financial risk is too great and the governments promises to lighten the highest labor costs in the world and overhaul 3,000 pages of work rules are too remote. President Francois Hollandes Socialist government has a plan to lower such payroll charges, cut red tape and make it easier to hire.Eurozone economic growth forecast cutFRANKFURT, Germany A major international organization has cut its growth forecast for the countries that use the euro and says the troubled currency union needs even more stimulus from the central bank and governments. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, a think tank dealing with the worlds developed countries, cut its forecasts for the eurozone this year to 0.8percent from 1.2percent in its May assessment. The Paris-based OECD also cut its growth forecasts for the U.S. and several other large economies but said the global economy overall was continuing a moderate if uneven recovery. The outlook for the U.S. was cut to 2.1percent from 2.6percent and for Japan to 0.9percent from 1.2percent. Italy, one of the more troubled economies in Europe, was downgraded from 0.5percent to minus 0.4percent.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, SEPTEMBER16, 2014 A11 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,800 1,850 1,900 1,950 2,000 2,050 MS AMJJA 1,960 2,000 2,040 S&P 500Close: 1,984.13 Change: -1.41 (-0.1%) 10 DAYS 16,000 16,400 16,800 17,200 MS AMJJA 16,920 17,060 17,200 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 17,031.14 Change: 43.63 (0.3%) 10 DAYSAdvanced1060 Declined2070 New Highs28 New Lows78 Vol. (in mil.)2,721 Pvs. Volume3,133 1,900 1,729 636 2091 30 88 NYSE NASD DOW 17051.8516951.3817031.14+43.63+0.26%+2.74% DOW Trans.8546.928502.818521.15-31.13-0.36%+15.14% DOW Util.553.47549.41551.28+1.64+0.30%+12.38% NYSE Comp.10925.9310881.0510909.32-2.08-0.02%+4.89% NASDAQ4567.474506.734518.90-48.70-1.07%+8.20% S&P5001987.181979.221984.13-1.41-0.07%+7.35% S&P4001422.451413.081415.87-6.19-0.44%+5.46% Wilshire 500021041.4320933.1520978.92-62.51-0.30%+6.46% Russell 20001160.061144.411146.52-14.09-1.21%-1.47% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Interestrates Stocks mixed ahead of Fed Associated PressNEW YORK Investors played it safe on Monday ahead of a potentially pivotal Federal Reserve meeting. While large company stocks ended the day little changed, smaller, riskier stocks slumped. Fed policy makers start a two-day meeting on Tuesday and many investors expect the central bank to indicate that it is moving closer to raising its key interest rate as the economy strengthens. The Fed has held the rate close to zero for more than five years, and stocks have surged against that backdrop. Reading the tea leaves, it seems that investors are trying to position themselves for a more aggressive Fed, said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at BMO Private Bank. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 43.63points, or 0.3percent, to 17,031.14. The Standard & Poors 500 index dropped 1.41, or 0.1percent, to 1,984.13. The Nasdaq composite fell 48.70points, or 1.1percent, to 4,518.90. The Russell 2000 index, an index of small company stocks, slipped 14.09points, or 1.2percent, to 1,146.52. Higher interest rates mean that companies and consumers have to pay more to borrow, leaving them with lower profits and less money to spend. Smaller-company stocks are more vulnerable to a sell-off because their valuations have become more stretched as the stock market has rallied, BMOs Ablin said. The average price-earnings ratio, a measure of a companys stock against next years earnings, has climbed to 15.5 from 12.6 at the start of 2013 for S&P 500 companies. For companies in the Nasdaq composite that ratio has risen to 19.8 from 14.9 in the same period. Among individual stocks, Molson Coors was the biggest gainer in the S&P 500 on Monday. The brewers stock rose $4.20, or 5.9percent, to $76, after touching an all-time high. The brewers stock jumped on merger news in the beer industry. Heineken said late Sunday that it rejected a takeover bid by rival SABMiller, the worlds second-largest brewer. Reports said that SABMiller tried to buy Heineken as a defense against an acquisition bid from Anheuser-Busch InBev, the industry leader. The news on the economy on Monday was mixed. U.S. manufacturing output declined in August for the first time in seven months, reflecting a sharp fall in production at auto plants. Output at manufacturing plants fell 0.4percent in August after a 0.7percent rise in July, the Federal Reserve reported. On the other hand, a gauge of manufacturing in New York state jumped to 27.5 in August from 14.7 in July.

OPINION Page A12TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2014 Cancer Society announces end of Cattle Barons BallThe American Cancer Society would like to extend our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the Citrus County community for supporting our Cattle Barons Ball for 10years and raising more than $825,000 to support the fight against cancer. This gala event has been an important staple within the Citrus County community for many years, and we are so grateful for the many volunteers that have donated countless hours to make Cattle Barons Ball a success. As we look to 2015, the Society has made the very difficult decision to transition out of Cattle Barons Ball. While we are saddened to see this event end, we know that the legacy of Cattle Barons Ball will live on in Citrus County through the important work the American Cancer Society and its volunteers continue to do each day. The American Cancer Society remains committed to supporting every cancer patient and survivor in Citrus County throughout their cancer journey. We help people in this community take steps to prevent cancer or detect it at its earliest, most treatable stage by developing guidelines for recommended cancer screenings, proper nutrition and physical activity. We are here for the community around the clock to guide them through their cancer experience, whether they need the latest information and resources available to guide them through their cancer diagnosis, rides to treatment through our Road To Recovery program, or free lodging at one of our Hope Lodges when they need to travel far from home for treatment. The Society is also finding cancers cures and causes through groundbreaking research. We are the largest nonprofit funder of cancer research, contributing to nearly every major cancer research breakthrough in recent history, including confirming the link between cigarette smoking and lung cancer, establishing the link between obesity and multiple cancers, and developing drugs to treat leukemia and advanced breast cancer. But we dont just fight back in the laboratory we also advocate for smoke-free laws, increased cancer research funding, and improved access to quality health care on the local, state and national levels. With your support, we are doing the most to fight cancer today so we can end the disease tomorrow. Our progress would not be possible without the fierce dedication and tireless passion of our volunteers you! The Citrus County community has a vibrant philanthropic spirit, and we hope to continue working with you side-by-side to fight back against cancer. There are many ways you can continue supporting the American Cancer Societys lifesaving work. Join us at our Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk this October (makingstrides walk.org), or form a team to participate in our local Relay For Life events in Crystal River and Inverness (relayfor life.org) in 2015. We are committed to working together to finish the fight once and for all! Thank you for your continued support.Theresa Foster chair, 2014 Citrus County Cattle Barons Ball American Cancer Society Kim Azar-Anderson senior director, Distinguished Events American Cancer Society One Rake at a Time has proven to be the key to success in restoring Citrus Countys springs back to a healthy balanced ecosystem. In the five years I have been working on the cleanup of Lyngbya from our springs, I have seen the incremental improvements take hold each and every week. Now there is a white sand beach again at Hunter Springs Park in Crystal River, and the park is packed with people once again enjoying the fresh, cool spring waters in the summer. Cedar Cove has new life returning and spring vents re-opened. There are now One Rake projects in Weeki Wachee and Homosassa Springs. We have reopened spring vents by hand raking, and they have stayed open because we maintain the areas we have cleaned. Sort of like brushing your teeth: You have to do it every day, because think of what would happen if you stopped brushing for months or years on end. Until we are able to stop the vast majority of the pollutants coming into our springs, we will need to keep on raking, cleaning out the build up from under docks, along the shoreline, from the deep crevices until we restore the habitat for good beneficial submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) that can outcompete the Lyngbya. The more we help Mother Nature regain a foothold again in our spring systems, the more nature will help us restore balance. There is an end in sight, and it is when crystal-clear waters and eel grasses once again dominate the spring systems. Hand raking compliments mechanical harvesting. Hand raking can get where no machine can go and get large piles of the legacy nutrient pollution that is locked up in the Lyngbya found along our shorelines and under docks. Also, careful hand raking removes cans, bottles, tires and other garbage from our springs. I believe there is not a better way to clean up our springs than having paid hand raking lead the way. It is the most efficient way next to the harvester machines currently being used. Dredging projects come and go, costing great amounts of money and sometimes not resulting in long-term solutions. If you dredge a deep spring vent without cleaning out all the shallow areas, the Lyngbya tends to slide back into the deeper areas. The paid hand raking is like putting a bounty on Lyngbya. Young people from our communities are able to get jobs and learn that hard work does pay off and are able to earn a decent dollar based on production. There is no overhead to paid hand raking except insurance costs; now all the money goes directly to the people doing the work. With a large dredging project, you have upper-management costs and profits being added to the cost of each cubic foot of Lyngbya removed. As we hand rake our springs clean, we see the good SAV come in behind us naturally taking root again once the benthic mats of Lyngbya are out of the way. Sometimes the simplest methods are the most effective. Dredge projects come and go. When the contract is completed, the contractors pack up and leave. Not so for hand raking. We are relentless and we will not walk away from what we have worked so hard to clean up, because we live here this is our home. There have been people who have told me that hand raking cannot clean up our springs. I say hand raking is the only thing that is cleaning up our springs, one rake at time, methodically, efficiently and for the long term. As we do the hard, backbreaking work to reclaim our springs, a new generation will be able to say we inherited a mess, and as we cleaned it up, we modified our behavior that was making the mess, and now we pass it on to the next generation better than we found it. Shallow men believe in luck. ... Strong men believe in cause and effect.Ralph Waldo Emerson, The Conduct of Life, 1860 Hand-raking Lyngbya yields improvements CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M.

Itd be strange if customers using the selfcheck-out lanes at department stores were charged more for their items than those who use a cashier. And it is weird that Citrus County Utilities (CCU) charges those who pay their bills via the Internet more than customers who cut a check and drop it in the mail. Generally, the convenience factor is a two-way street, so the logic of penalizing customers with an up-charge needs to be rethought. Case in point: How many banks encourage customers not to bank online? Citrus County Utilities is hearing from perplexed customers, curious why the company that does the billing thinks those who pay online should get charged more for the convenience. Those whose bills are $50 or less pay an additional $2 if paying online. If the bill is $41 to $100, theyre hit up for $2.95; and, if the bill is in the hundreds of dollars, the charge is $2 per $100. County water resources director Ken Cheek is working with the billing company to see what can be done. The lump-sum amount has been requested by the county, with the thought that if the portion that results from online charges is modest, the county may be able to absorb cost. If not, an option could be to spread the cost among all CCU customers. Apparently the company has never had a request for a lump-sum amount in the past and, as of earlier this month, had yet to work up the numbers. In the end, it could be that those who pay online continue to pay the additional fee. Thats yet to be seen. Should that be the case, a stamp, envelope and a goodold everyday check may well make more sense for utility customers. And thats less convenient for all concerned.

I was at Walgreens in Homosassa and this very nice man stepped forward to pay for my stuff because I had forgotten my EBT card. What a blessing this fellow was to us. I truly appreciate him. I wish I knew his name, but thank you very much to the kind gentleman.Lesson in etymologyVegan is an Indian word. It means lousy hunter.Editors note: To head off any phone calls, vegan is a term used to describe a person who does not consume animals or animal products, including foods such as egg and cheese. Missing big pointThis is in reference to the headline today, Duke billing gets Deans attention. I think its very ironic that a billing error gets Deans attention but were OK to be billed for a nuclear plant that was never repaired and were also paying for a nuclear plant that is never going to be built. Amazing.What deal?It was my understanding a few months ago after reading the Chronicle, that JJ Kenney, county commissioner, had negotiated a deal with the city of Inverness to make the countys back payments in support of the park that was in dispute. And now I understand that that ... was never a deal and that no payment has been made to Inverness and that the payment due on the countys part for the park is still years past due. Is this the case? If so, please publish something in the newspaper to clarify this confusing issue. Editors note:The issue is far too complex to completely explain in an editors note. The city of Inverness made the latest overture in June, presenting the county a nine-point agreement that included an agreed-upon amount for parks. The county has yet to formally accept the agreement.Graphite trumps siliconIm calling the Chronicle in reference to this modern age where computers are real smart and they do everything for us and everythings a computer. I think we need to go back to the old-fashioned way. Lets go back to pens and paper and do it the right way. Because think about it; the computers do everything and know everything, but yet they have computer repair stores. But you dont see pencil repair stores.

Consider best use of barge canalI suggest, if you want the best use of the barge canal, consider the following: 1. The leak under the Rousseau Dam puts huge quantities of fresh water into the Gulf every hour of every day. 2. The lower river, by virtue of undersized feed through the by-pass canal, is dying from a lack of proper flow. 3. Dam the canal creating a freshwater lake that could be used for a consistent water supply, recreation and flood control. 4. Reconnect the lower river and save a very deservingly designated Outstanding Florida Waterway. 5. Examine the saving from implementation of this plan to what the Southwest Florida Water Management Districts plans are for future water supply for the area.Dave Berkley YankeetownPublic-private partnerships can be successfulMuch has been said lately about publicprivate partnerships. Several, including my opponent, have said they are a bad thing, and it is only our government picking winners and losers, and they shouldnt be doing that, and that it does nothing but waste taxpayer money. Hearing that, I would like to point out a few partnerships that have many benefits and try to show how important these partnerships are to the taxpayer. The first example is our own hospital. This is a public-private partnership. The entire hospital and its offsite services have been funded by taxpayers, or at least the funding has been backed by the ability to raise funds from the taxpayer. One can look at the hospital and know what a benefit it is to our community. Modern, state-of-the-art health care, jobs, employees that give back to the community through charities, etc. None of this could have happened without a partnership. The second example is our jail. The jail was built with taxpayer money, and we have a partnership with Corrections Corperation of America to run the jail. This partnership allows us to have a very safe community at an affordable price. CCA has expanded the facility, added upgrades and modernized the jail at their expense while saving the taxpayers millions. The third example is the new public/private partnership with the city of Crystal River and Duke Energy. This is a pipeline that is costing the taxpayers millions but is very beneficial and will save millions on the back end and creates a huge benefit to our environment. It is a win, win, win, win for the city, Duke, the taxpayer and the environment. It ships wastewater from the city to Crystal River Units 4 and 5, saving the taxpayers from having to have and maintain an expensive spray field and it saves Duke from having to pump 1.5 million gallons a day of groundwater. Everybody wins. The final one is a result of the previous one. Crystal River no longer needs to own and maintain an expensive spray field, so the opportunity to partner with a company to build a biomass plant has presented itself. This could be a potential win for everybody, again. The environment benefits because we do not need as much fossil fuels, creating less air pollution. The city gets revenues from it, and the taxpayers get more revenues, jobs, etc. These are just four of the public-private partnerships we have locally. There are many, with charities and corporations. This country was founded on public-private partnerships. Think back, it was tax dollars that funded exploration and the founding of this great nation. Think about NASA, a huge publicprivate partnership that has resulted in many benefits to the taxpayer (satellite TV, for instance). Think about all the companies that partner with state universities to develop products that help us and the environment. Partnerships can be very beneficial. However, I am not saying all of them are. To make this county into something more beautiful, we need to cut costs and move forward with some projects. We need to balance protecting the environment with job growth. To do this we need to rebuild the broken relationships with our city governments, charities, state officials, constituents and private enterprise if we are to accomplish these tasks, reduce our budget, protect the environment, and our bucolic way of life. I am sure it will once again be necessary to partner with various entities mentioned above in order to do that. All I ask is that you keep an open mind to the possibility.

State Sen. resigns after voter fraud caseSACRAMENTO, Calif. State Sen. Rod Wright submitted his resignation Monday after he was sentenced last week to three months in jail for lying about where he lived when he ran for office. Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg accepted Wrights one-sentence letter, which stated his resignation is effective Sept. 22. Jennifer Hanson, a spokeswoman for Wright, confirmed the senator submitted the letter. Wright, a Democratic from Los Angeles County, was convicted of perjury in January for lying about his residence and later was suspended with pay from the Senate.Teen accused in California bank heistSTOCKTON, Calif. A 16-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of moving what had been an intended getaway car two days after a deadly Northern California bank robbery, police said Monday. The teen was taken into custody on Thursday and booked on suspicion of being an accessory after he tried to cover up or move evidence. The robbers took three hostages and carjacked one of their vehicles instead of using the car that was later moved. Two of the suspected robbers and a hostage, 41-year-old customer Misty Holt-Singh, were killed during an exchange of gunfire with police after the robbery.Victims family praying for girl in range accidentPHOENIX The family of an Arizona shooting-range instructor who was accidentally shot and killed by a 9-year-old girl with an Uzi said theyre praying for her.

Sierra Leone: WHO too slow to help docFREETOWN, Sierra Leone Sierra Leone accused the World Health Organization on Monday of being sluggish in facilitating an evacuation of a doctor who died from Ebola before she could be sent out of the country for medical care. Dr. Olivet Buck died Saturday, hours after the U.N. health agency said it could not help evacuate her to Germany. Buck is the fourth Sierra Leonean doctor to die in an outbreak that has also touched Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Senegal. The West African outbreak has been blamed for more than 2,400 deaths, and experts say it is out of control. At a heated news conference Monday, a Sierra Leonean government official read a statement saying that the Buck is the second doctor from that country to die because negotiations on evacuation had dragged on. Dr. Sheik Humarr Khan, the countrys top Ebola expert, was being considered for evacuation when he died of the disease in July.Six killed, 15 wounded in east Ukraine cityKIEV, Ukraine Shelling killed six people and wounded 15 others in the rebel stronghold of Donetsk, the city council said Monday the worst reported violence since a cease-fire between Russian-backed rebels and Ukrainian troops took effect on Sept. 5. Fighting around the eastern citys government-held airport has left its northern neighborhoods in the crossfire. Two northern neighborhoods were shelled heavily Sunday, leading to the casualties and damaging both homes and offices, the city council said. Loud blasts could be heard from the direction of the airport all day Monday, and gunfire intermittently rang out downtown in the afternoon. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressWASHINGTON Two Vietnam War soldiers one still living, one killed in action received the Medal of Honor in a White House ceremony on Monday, nearly 50 years after they threw themselves into harms way to protect their brothers in combat. President Barack Obama praised the soldiers as patriots whose sacrifices had never been fully realized by a nation divided over the legacy of the Vietnam War. Army Command Sgt. Maj. Bennie G. Adkins survived his injuries. Army Spc. Donald P. Sloat did not. It took an act of Congress to allow each to receive the medal so many decades after the fact. Over the decades, our Vietnam veterans didnt always receive the thanks and respect they deserved. Thats a fact, Obama said. But as we have been reminded again today, our Vietnam vets were patriots and are patriots. Drafted into the Army at age 22 from his home in rural Oklahoma, Adkins was deployed three times to Vietnam with the Special Forces. He was already being recognized for actions during his second combat tour when, in 1966, a large North Vietnamese force attacked his camp. For 38 hours, Adkins fought in close combat against enemy forces, dodging exploding mortar rounds as he dragged wounded soldiers to safety. When the order was finally given to evacuate camp, Adkins refused to leave comrades behind. By the time he and his group made its way to the extraction point, the last evacuation helicopter had left. So Adkins led his fellow soldiers into the jungle, where they evaded enemy soldiers and even a tiger before being evacuated 48 hours later. Adkins, visibly older and walking with a cane, stood tall in his blue uniform and epaulettes, saluting fellow troops after Obama draped the medal around his neck. Adkins now lives in Opelika, Alabama. This Medal of Honor belongs to the other 16 Special Forces soldiers with me, Adkins said after the ceremony. Sloat, of Coweta, Oklahoma, was 20 years old when his squad was patrolling a stretch of territory known for frequent North Vietnamese and Viet Cong activity. Unwittingly, the soldier at the head of the pack triggered a tripwire, detonating a booby-trap set there by enemy forces. The grenade rolled down the hill toward Sloat, and when he picked it up, he realized it was too late to throw it out of harms way. So with the explosion imminent, Sloat held on to the grenade, pulling it close and bending over so that his body would shield his fellow soldiers from the blast. Sloats brother, William, accepted the medal from the president. Two awarded Medal of Honor Both were soldiers in the Vietnam War; one killed in action Associated PressGLASGOW, Scotland Across Scotland, dinner table talk is getting heated as families argue over how to vote in Scotlands independence referendum. A generation gap has opened up, with younger voters more inclined to back independence and their elders tending to say they want to remain in the United Kingdom. Support for the status quo is strongest among the over-60s, who worry about the consequences that breaking free would have on pensions, health care and savings; the pro-independence movement is largely being driven by under40s. Neck-and-neck in the polls, the rival campaigns have called on core supporters to make a last ditch attempt to swing the vote by making the debate a family affair. The young have been urged to visit parents and grandparents to explain why they should support separation. The No camp has launched a counteroffensive by asking seniors to win young hearts and minds with their wisdom. I was so proud of my grandpa when he told me he was voting Yes that I burst into tears, said 23-year-old Miriam Brett, a campaigner for Generation Yes. A Yes vote means so much to my generation. We want to let all our grandparents know that their future is secure in our hands, and with a Yes we can build a better future for ourselves and for our children. Some polls suggest the No camp is trailing in every age group except the over-60s. Opinion surveys indicate more than 63 percent of that age group is expected to vote in favor of the union. As older people are more likely to be on the electoral roll, there has been a huge drive to get younger people engaged in the Yes campaign. Interest in the referendum is sky high. A total of 4,285,323 people, or 97 percent of the voting-age population, have registered to vote in the referendum. Thats an increase of 300,000 compared to registration figures in 2012. The turnout for Thursdays ballot could exceed 85 percent, compared to the just over 50 percent who voted in the last Scottish Parliament elections in 2011, and the 63.8 percent who turned out for the 2010 British parliamentary election. Generation gap Associated PressBobby Docherty, a supporter of Scottish independence, demonstrates Sunday outside the BBC building in Glasgow, Scotland. Throughout the country, houses are divided over the issue of separation from the UK, with younger voters more inclined to back Yes and the older generation in favor of the union in Thursdays landmark vote. Support for keeping the UK together is strongest among the over-60s who are worried about pensions, health care and the value of their savings while much of the pro-independence movement is being driven by the under-40s.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry ruled out any military coordination with Iran. That doesnt mean that we are opposed to the idea of communicating to find out if they will come on board, or under what circumstances, or whether there is the possibility of a change, Kerry told a small group of reporters. France and Iraq see Shiitepowerhouse Iran as an interlocutor who could bring its influence to bear in the region against the Sunni extremists of the Islamic State group, but some Arab states, like Saudi Arabia, disagree. The U.S. opposed a place for Iran at the conference. But Tehran, which has political and military influence with its neighbor Iraq, still managed to be part of the conversation. The absence of Iran underscored the conflicting sensitivities and complex politics in the region as Western countries seek to battle the Islamic State group, which has taken control of large parts of Iraq and Syria. The meeting of foreign ministers from Asia, the Middle East and the West was a first step toward deciding who does what in a multilayered offensive against the Islamic State group. As envisioned by France and Iraq, the effort would include intensifying airstrikes, cutting off financing, and helping Baghdad cope through humanitarian aid and reconstruction. There would be no troops on the ground, however. Kerry: US open to talks with Iran to counter Islamic State
Baseball/ B2 Scoreboard/B3 Sports briefs/ B3 Lottery, TV/B3 Football/B4 Nationals, Orioles need one more win to clinch East titles./B2 SPORTSSection BTUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Zobrist delivers in ninth as Rays edge Yanks New Yorks postseason chances take hit in 1-0 loss Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Ben Zobrist hit a gameending single with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, lifting the Tampa Bay Rays over the New York Yankees 1-0 on Monday night. With the Baltimore Orioles 5-2 win over Toronto, the Yankees were eliminated from AL East title contention in Derek Jeters final season. Mired in an 0-for-24 slump, Jeter was given the night off. Logan Forsythe got the Rays third hit of the game, a one-out single in the ninth off Shawn Kelley (3-6) and went to second on James Loneys single. After pinch-hitter David DeJesus struck out and pinch-hitter Matt Joyce walked, Zobrist lined his hit to right. Joel Peralta (3-4) walked one while pitching the ninth to help Tampa Bay get its 21st shutout of the season. The Rays became the first team since the 1973-75 Boston Red Sox to beat the Yankees 10 or more times in three straight seasons. Alex Colome, recalled from Triple-A Durham by Tampa Bay before the game, allowed six hits over 6 2/3 innings in his second big league start this season. Chris Capuano gave up two hits and four walks in six innings. The left-hander lasted just onethird of an inning in his previous start Wednesday, allowing four runs, four hits and two walks in the Yankees 8-5 come-from-behind victory over the Rays. Chase Headley was ejected by plate umpire Marty Foster in the seventh for arguing a called strike. Dominant start for SEC West Associated PressOutside of the Southeastern Conferences footprint, its become commonplace to hope for stumbles by college footballs most dominant league. Theres only one problem with that. The conference at least its West division just doesnt lose all that often. Led by Arkansas dismantling of Big 12 Conference member Texas Tech in a 49-28 win on Saturday, the SEC West turned in its second straight undefeated weekend in the seasons third week. Five of the divisions seven teams are ranked in this weeks Associated Press Top 25 poll, and all seven teams received votes. More impressively, the teams are a combined 19-1 overall with the only loss coming by the Razorbacks in an intra-divisional matchup with No. 5 Auburn. The Wests nearly flawless record will be tested this week by several difficult out-of-division matchups, including the Tigers at No. 20 Kansas State, Florida at No. 3 Alabama and Northern Illinois at Arkansas. Also, divisional matchup Mississippi State at No. 8 LSU will add at least one loss. VOLLEYBALL NOTEBOOKC.J. RISAK CorrespondentThis week could be pivotal. Its only mid-September, but by the end of the week the four teams that comprise 5A-6 will have each played each other, which means the district season will be half over. Same holds true in 2A-3: Seven Rivers Christian hosts Ocala St. John Lutheran Thursday, marking the halfway point for the Warriors district season. Thus far, there have been a couple of surprises, while others have followed their predicted paths. Question is, how much will change by weeks end? And also, if venturing further into the future, how much can change by seasons end? BIGGEST SURPRISES: First place on this list belongs to Seven Rivers Christian. The Warriors have been superb for the most part, having won nine of 10 matches. They hosted Citrus, Crystal River and Lecanto and won all three in straight sets, then met both Citrus and Crystal River last weekend at the Bishop McLaughlin Tournament in best-ofthree matches and again won in straight sets. Seven Rivers has proven to be a scrappy type of team thats strong defensively and passes well. It also has a fairly strong attack, led by Alyssa Gage, Julia Eckart and Michaela Wallace. But as strong as the Warriors have performed, their one loss is notable: It came Sept. 4 against 2A-3 rival Leesburg First Academy, when they were swept in three sets. Which means when they play that very strong St. John Lutheran team Thursday, a loss would leave them in last place and winless in district play. Strange and unforeseen circumstances, indeed. The other big surprise is Citrus. Last season, the Hurricanes boosted themselves to the 5A-6 championship, their first district title in 19 years. They have not followed that script this season. Citrus has struggled, failing in some basic areas like passing and communication, which has resulted in breakdowns in things it should do well, like attacking.A week to make your moveSee NOTEBOOK/ Page B3 MATT PFIFFNER /ChronicleLecanto senior Morgan Christian gets in position to receive serve during a straight-set victory over Citrus on Sept. 11 in Lecanto. Christian added to an already strong game in the offseason and has helped lead the Panthers to a 4-2 start to the season. Lecantos Morgan Christian emerging as a team leader C.J. RISAK CorrespondentIn 2013, Lecantos volleyball team struggled at times. The Panthers did tie Crystal River and Citrus for the 5A-6 regular-season title, but they couldnt prolong their season. They lost to Citrus in their first-round district match and that was that. The inconsistency of their play was a mystery one moment it seemed they could beat anyone, the next they couldnt earn a point. What apparently was lacking was a leader, and not just an inspirational talker, but someone to rely on when a play oncourt needed to be made. There may be several players who could fill that role this season, and in last Thursdays straight-set win over Citrus several of them surfaced. One whose play statistically may escape notice, but whose on-court presence has been instrumental, is Morgan Christian. All around, was how Lecantos coach and Morgans mother Alice Christian described her play. Shes very good at placing the ball. Shes a very smart court player. Shell see the court, she knows when she doesnt have to hit. She knows when she has to drop to a corner or a side, and shes usually very accurate with her placement. Against Citrus, many of Morgans qualities were readily evident. A senior, she tied for the team lead in both kills with six and digs with 15. Defense has always been one of her strengths, but her hitting this season has emerged and given the Panthers another weapon. Im playing more aggressive rather than timid like last year, Morgan See PRESENCE/ Page B3 Tampa Bays Ben Zobrist hugs teammate Curt Casali after his walk-off single during the ninth inning against the New York Yankees in St. Petersburg.

Associated PressATLANTA Stephen Strasburg threw seven scoreless innings to end a long run of frustration against Atlanta, and the Nationals beat the struggling Braves 4-2 on Monday night to move to the verge of the NL East title. The Nationals can clinch the division by beating the defending champion Braves tonight. Strasburg (12-11) ended a streak of eight winless starts against Atlanta since 2012. He had been 0-3 with a 7.17 ERA against the Braves this season, including a 6-2 loss at Washington last Wednesday. Wilson Ramos hit his 11th homer in the fifth. The Nationals led 4-0 before the Braves scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth. Washington left fielder Bryce Harper left the game in the fourth inning after feeling light-headed. The Braves (75-75) have lost four straight to fall to .500 for the first time since they were 1-1. They trail Pittsburgh by 4 1-2 games for the second NL wild-card spot. Washingtons Craig Stammen pitched a scoreless eighth before Rafael Soriano gave up Justin Uptons run-scoring double in the ninth. After Soriano walked Chris Johnson, Drew Storen gave up Christian Bethancourts single up the middle to drive in Upton. Storens wild pitch left runners on second and third, but B.J. Upton grounded out to end the game. Storen earned his sixth save. Ervin Santana (14-9) allowed two runs and only three hits, including Ramos homer, in six innings. The frustration for the sagging Braves showed when Freddie Freeman was ejected for arguing following his strikeout to end the sixth. Freeman slammed his bat to the ground before leaving the field. Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez took over the argument, kicked Freemans broken bat, and was tossed by home-plate umpire Tim Timmons. Strasburgs seventh-inning single off Luis Avilan drove in Asdrubal Cabrera, who doubled with two outs. The Nationals took a 1-0 lead in the third. Ramos led off with a walk, moved to second on Strasburgs sacrifice, and scored on Denard Spans double into the right-field corner. With two outs in the fourth and Jayson Werth on third following a leadoff double, Nate Schierholtz struck out as a pinch-hitter for Harper. The Nationals provided no further update on Harpers condition. Schierholtz had a run-scoring single off Gus Schlosser in the eighth. Strasburg pitched out of fifthinning trouble caused in part by his throwing error. Jason Heyward led off with a single to right and moved on third on Strasburgs wild pickoff throw to first base. Heyward was stranded on third as Strasburg recorded three straight outs, two on strikeouts of Johnson and B.J. Upton. Strasburgs last win over the Braves came on Aug. 21, 2012.AMERICAN LEAGUE Orioles 5, Blue Jays 2BALTIMORE The Baltimore Orioles moved to the brink of claiming their first AL East title in 17 years, using a resilient pitching performance by Wei-Yin Chen to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2. Baltimore can clinch the division crown with a win over Toronto today. That would assure the Orioles their second playoff berth in three years following a run of 14 consecutive losing seasons. Baltimore (90-60) leads the AL East by 12 1/2 games, its biggest advantage since 1979. Chen (16-4) allowed two runs on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings to become the first Orioles lefty to win 16 games since Jimmy Key in 1997 the year Baltimore last won the AL East. Although he yielded at least one hit in every inning but the second, Chen improved to 13-2 in 23 starts since May 9. Zach Britton worked the ninth for his 35th save in 39th opportunities.Astros 3, Indians 1HOUSTON Jose Altuve had three hits to give him 209 this season and drove in two runs, leading the Houston Astros to a 3-1 win over the Cleveland Indians. The major league hits leader is just one hit shy of tying the franchise record of 210, set by Craig Biggio in 2008. Clevelands wild-card hopes continue to fade with a fourth straight loss. They entered the night five games back for the second AL wild card. The Astros trailed by one in the third inning with runners at second and third when Altuves single scored them both to put Houston up 2-1. Houston starter Collin McHugh (10-9) allowed five hits and one run none earned in 6 2/3 innings, to extend his career-long winning streak to six games. He left after taking a comebacker to his left arm in the seventh.NATIONAL LEAGUE Marlins 6, Mets 5NEW YORK Jacob deGrom struck out his first eight batters to match a major league record before the Miami Marlins finally started making contact and rallied late for a 6-5 victory over the New York Mets. Adeiny Hechavarria hit a two-run single and Jeff Mathis put Miami in front with an RBI single that capped a three-run eighth inning. But with both teams under .500 with two weeks left in the season, it was deGrom who provided the excitement early on. On a night when New Yorks goofy mascot, Mr. Met, wore a shaggy wig to mimic deGrom, the rookie finished with 13 strikeouts in seven innings. He whiffed eight consecutive Marlins to begin the game, tying a mark set by Jim Deshaies of the Houston Astros against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sept. 23, 1986. Deshaies and deGrom are the only pitchers to accomplish the feat since 1900.Cubs 1, Reds 0CHICAGO Anthony Rizzo capped his return to the Cubs lineup with a walk-off home run in the ninth inning that gave Chicago a 1-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds. Rizzo had missed the last 18 games due to a back problem but drove a pitch from Pedro Villarreal (0-1) over the wall in center field. Rizzos homer was his 31st of the season and gave Hector Rondon (4-4) the win after he tossed a scoreless inning of relief. Travis Wood didnt get any run support and couldnt earn his ninth win of the season despite producing one of his best outings of the year. Wood threw six scoreless innings, allowed only three hits, and lowered his ERA to 4.86. Cincinnati starter Alfredo Simon gave up five hits in seven innings.

His hits included two home runs. 1960 Warren Spahn, 39, pitched a no-hitter and set an all-time Braves record with 15 strikeouts. Milwaukee beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-0. 1965 Dave Morehead of the Boston Red Sox pitched a 2-0 no-hitter against the Cleveland Indians at Fenway Park. 1975 The Pittsburgh Pirates routed the Chicago Cubs 22-0 in Wrigley Field the most one-sided shutout since 1900. Rennie Stennett had seven hits, including two two-hit innings. 1987 Joe Carter of the Cleveland Indians became the ninth major leaguer to hit 30 home runs and steal 30 bases in the same season when he stole his career-high 30th base in the fourth inning of a 5-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners. 1988 Cincinnatis Tom Browning pitched a perfect game, and the Reds beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 1-0. 1993 Dave Winfield of the Minnesota Twins became the 19th player in major league history to get 3,000 hits with a single off Oaklands Dennis Eckersley. 1996 Paul Molitor got his 3,000th career hit, becoming the 21st major leaguer to reach the mark and the first to do it with a triple. 1997 Philadelphias Curt Schilling struck out nine in the Phillies win over the New York Mets to become the 13th pitcher since 1900 with 300 strikeouts in a season. 2000 Chicagos Sammy Sosa became the third player to hit 50 home runs in three seasons, joining Babe Ruth and Mark McGwire. Sosa homered in the Cubs 7-6 loss to St. Louis, joining McGwire as the only players to hit 50 in three straight years. 2006 Washingtons Alfonso Soriano became the fourth player in major league history with 40 home runs and 40 stolen bases in a season in an 8-4 win over Milwaukee. The others are: Jose Canseco (Oakland, 1988), Barry Bonds (San Francisco, 1996) and Alex Rodriguez (Seattle, 1998). 2006 Chone Figgins hit for the cycle in the Los Angeles Angels 12-6 loss to the Texas Rangers. 2007 Jim Thome became the 23rd player and third this season to reach 500 home runs. The slugger hit a two-run shot in the bottom of the ninth inning off reliever Dustin Moseley to give the Chicago White Sox a 9-7 victory over the Los Angeles Angels.
SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Regardless, the SEC West is alive and well with no weak link having shown itself yet. Heres a look at some of the other notable performances from the third week of the college football season: RESURGENT RAZORBACKS: Sticking with the SEC West, the divisions worst team from a season ago appears to have turned the corner under second-year coach Bret Bielema. Arkansas was 3-9 last year in Bielemas first season, but it was tied with Auburn at halftime before falling and has reeled off two dominating wins since. After a 438-yard rushing performance against the Red Raiders, the Razorbacks led by the running back duo of Jonathan Williams and Alex Collins are third nationally with an average of 362 yards per game on the ground. Williams is averaging 9.8 yards per carry, and he and Collins have combined for 11 touchdowns exactly the style Bielema hoped to bring when he left Wisconsin. AIR RAID WEST: Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday topped the 500-yard passing mark for the second time in three games this season with his 544-yard, six-touchdown performance in a 59-21 win over Portland State on Saturday. The senior leads the nation with 1,465 yards passing through three games, and hes improved his quarterback rating from 126.5 last year to 155.2. BEAR MARKET: Baylor freshman wide receiver KD Cannon leads the nation in receiving yards after his second straight dominating performance, a sixcatch, 189-yard effort in a 63-21 win over Buffalo. The 6-foot, 170-pound Cannon now has 471 yards receiving through his first three collegiate games, and hes averaging 33.6 yards per catch for the Bears who lead the country with an average of 59.3 points per game. RUNNING MINER: A week after nearly leading Texas-El Paso to a win over Texas Tech, Miners running back Aaron Jones continued his torrid start to the season with a 25-carry, 168-yard rushing effort in a 42-24 win over New Mexico State on Saturday. The sophomore leads the country with 552 yards rushing after three games, and hes already closing in on last years total of 811 yards rushing. EFFICIENT EFFORT: Duke running back Shaun Wilson led the nation in rushing last week, rushing for 245 yards on just 12 carries an average of 20.4 yards per rush. The freshman had three touchdown runs of 45 yards or longer, including 69and 68-yard scoring bursts as the Blue Devils improved to 3-0 with a 41-3 win over Kansas.

In each, they seemed to get weaker as the match progressed. Coach Sandra VanDervort was hopeful last weekends McLaughlin tournament would help get things sorted out. They host Dunnellon tonight before going on the road to play Belleview Wednesday and Crystal River Thursday; a win over the Tigers would help get things started, particularly in 5A-6. NOT SO SURPRISING: Lecanto and Crystal River have each been as strong as predicted through the seasons first three weeks. Of the countys three 5A-6 squads, Lecanto had the strongest nucleus returning, and the Panthers 4-2 start combined with their 3-0 triumph over Citrus confirmed they will be in the district title hunt all season. The talent is there. Lecanto has a strong net presence with Dedra Magee, DeeAnna Moehring, Olivia Grey and Annalee Garcia, and solid all-around play from Morgan Christian and Shannon Fernandez. Defense and passing will be key elements if this is to be a successful season for the Panthers. So will attitude. Letdowns last season often led to losses in what could have been wins. Something similar happened last Monday when Lecanto allowed Belleview to battle back and steal a victory. But to the Panthers credit, they didnt dwell on the defeat, instead taking command in their district opener and dispatching Citrus. Crystal River didnt boast the kind of returning experience Lecanto did, but the Pirates have still emerged as a team to be reckoned with in 5A-6. Cassidy Wardlow, one of their senior captains, remains a top-notch outside hitter, and theyve bolstered their strength at the net with a pair of dominant sophomores, Abby Epstein and Kaylan Simms. Defense has been a longtime staple for Crystal River, but the back row had to be rebuilt after last season. If that segment of the Pirates game, together with the development of sophomore setter Kaite Eichler, continues to progress, this team will be a contender. BIG MATCH OF THE WEEK: Its at 6 p.m. tonight, when Crystal River plays at Lecanto. It should be a match of strength vs. strength, both teams possessing strong attackers and good net defense. That means the team that defends and passes the best should emerge. However, dont expect a three-set sweep by either side.Volleyball statisticsTEAM RECORDS: Seven Rivers Christian, 9-1 overall, 0-1 in 2A-3; Crystal River, 8-4 overall, 1-0 in 5A-6; Lecanto, 4-2 overall, 1-0 in 5A-6; Citrus, 3-6 overall, 0-1 in 5A-6.

NOTEBOOKContinued from Page B1 said. But, not surprisingly, she insisted that wasnt her offseason focus as she prepared for this campaign. Her answer when asked what she felt she had to do better: My back row, my passing. The mental part of the game is something both Alice and Morgan Christian have made a focal point this season. What made Thursdays victory over Citrus more impressive was what happened to the Panthers three days earlier. They took on a strong Belleview team and won the first two sets handily, then built a sizable lead in the third. But thats where the tide changed the Rattlers bounced back to win the next three sets and the match. A defeat like that could have lingered with Lecanto. It didnt. Everyone has their bad days, Morgan said. We fought in Belleview, but we really fought today because it was Citrus and we really wanted to win. Still, she didnt discount what that loss could mean to Lecanto. I think it was a turning point, Morgan said. I just think we had a bad game and that was one of them, but we can learn from it. Learning not just how to win, but how to rebound from setbacks will be imperative lessons for Lecanto. Morgan knows it. I think we have it, it just depends on attitude, she said. We all have pretty great attitudes to be honest, so I think we all should be good at bringing each other up instead of down. And the talent, in all phases of the game, is there, too. I think we have a lot of strong points, Morgan said. Especially our front row, we have a lot of front-row players who are really good at tipping and finding the open spots. And definitely Erin (Smilgen) in our back row, being our libero. Lecanto has won four of its first six matches, and it will have two more 5A-6 encounters this week. Just how far the Panthers have progressed when they reach that midpoint of their district season will then be palpable. PRESENCEContinued from Page B1 Pirates top SharksThe Crystal River volleyball team dropped the first set at home Monday night to Nature Coast Tech, but rallied to take the next three for a 21-25, 25-18, 25-17, 25-21 non-district victory. Kaite Eichler passed out 37 assists and had 14 digs for the Pirates. Cassidy Wardlow added 15 kills, 26 digs and five aces, Abby Epstein had 10 kills, two blocks and two aces, Myrcia Powell had eight kills and Mercedes Scott and Haley Coleman added 14 digs each. The Pirates (9-4, 1-0) return to district play tonight at 6 p.m. at Lecanto.NFL, union close to finalizing new drug policyNEW YORK The NFL and the players union are close to finalizing the drug policy changes they tentatively agreed upon last week.

Associated PressCORAL GABLES The last two games have turned into easy wins for Miami. The level of difficulty is about to rise considerably, with no end in sight to that trend, either. Out of the 125 teams at the highest level of college football, only 34 are still undefeated and seven of those teams are among the nine left on Miamis schedule. The Hurricanes (2-1) visit No. 24 Nebraska (3-0) on Saturday, a nationally televised matchup and a rekindling of what was once one of the sports top rivalries. A crowd of more than 90,000 is expected, meaning the game should easily become one of the top-10 most-attended in Miami history. Any big win like that would elevate our program, Miami center Shane McDermott said after practice Monday. Nebraska has a great defense. Were getting ready to go up there, give them our all. To beat any big program like that, of course, that would be a very big deal. Its still mid-September, and plenty of teams on Miamis schedule have feasted on overmatched opponents so far. So have the Hurricanes, who followed the season-opening loss at Louisville with easy and largely predictable wins over Florida A&M and Arkansas State. But no one can argue that most of the teams left for Miami this season are off to flying starts. Talented football team, Nebraska coach Bo Pelini said Monday of the Hurricanes. Should be a fun weekend. ... We need to have a great week of preparation to get ready for this football team. The combined record of Miamis remaining opponents right now is 21-2, with Duke (3-0), Georgia Tech (3-0), Cincinnati (1-0), North Carolina (2-0), No. 1 Florida State (2-0) and Pittsburgh (3-0) still unbeaten. The only remaining Hurricane regular-season foes that have been beaten so far are Virginia Tech (2-1) and Virginia (2-1). Plus, eight of those nine remaining teams went to bowls last season. Its a challenging schedule, Miami coach Al Golden said Monday, repeating something hes said at other points this season. Golden is also very quick to say that, for now, no other game besides Nebraska matters to Miami. Its the first meeting between the schools since the Hurricanes easily defeated the Cornhuskers 37-14 in the Rose Bowl, a victory that gave Miami the 2001 national championship the schools fifth and most recent title. Its a one-game mission, Golden said. We came over here with a good attitude and put our ego down and learned from our mistakes in the game the other day. Were still at a point where we have numerous mistakes that we have to correct in all three phases. I thought we did that today. Obviously we got better and we have to have a great practice tomorrow.B4TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER16, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFOOTBALL 2014 the best & the worst the best & the worstchronicleonline.com/tattoo tattoo art by tattoo art byWIN $250 credit toward tattoo correction or a new tattoo plus other cool prizesWIN $250 credit toward tattoo correction or a new tattoo plus other cool prizesVOTE!!

NFL BRIEFSRedskins optimistic RG3 will returnASHBURN, Va. Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden is optimistic Robert Griffin III will return this season. Gruden said Monday that an MRI shows no broken bones in Griffins injured left ankle. He said the quarterback will be in a cast for a few weeks, and then the team will have an idea when Griffin could return. Gruden said theres no consideration at this point of putting Griffin on season-ending injured reserve. The quarterback dislocated his left ankle in the first quarter of the Redskins win Sunday over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The injury is often accompanied by a fracture that requires seasonending surgery. Without the need for surgery, Griffin could perhaps return in about two months.Adrian Peterson sorry for hurting childEDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Adrian Peterson has issued a statement after being charged with child abuse and says he is sorry about the hurt I have brought to my child. Peterson issued his statement on Monday a few hours after the Minnesota Vikings reinstated him to the team. Peterson was charged last weekend after he struck his 4-year-old son with a tree branch as a form of discipline earlier this summer. Peterson said he has met with a psychologist and I have to live with the fact that when I disciplined my son the way I was disciplined as a child, I caused an injury that I never intended or thought would happen. Peterson said hes not perfect, but also said without a doubt I am not a child abuser.Jags Lewis out 6 to 8 weeks with injuryJACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without versatile tight end Marcedes Lewis for six to eight weeks because of an ankle injury. Coach Gus Bradley announced the extent of Lewis injury Monday, a day after the Jaguars lost 41-10 at Washington. Lewis suffered a highankle sprain on the first play of the third quarter and did not return. Bradley said Lewis could end up on the injured reserve/ designated to return list. The Jaguars hope to have several injured starters back this week, including right tackle Austin Pasztor, who has been out for a month with a broken hand. Bradley said receiver Cecil Shorts III ran some Monday and could be back Wednesday, and safety Johnathan Cyprien remains in the NFLs concussion program and has not been cleared for contact.Moreno out a month; Dolphins re-sign ThomasDAVIE Miami Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno is expected to be sidelined for at least a month with a left elbow injury, and the team has re-signed Daniel Thomas to shore up the position. Moreno, the NFLs leading rusher in Week 1, was hurt in the first quarter of Sundays loss at Buffalo. On Monday, the Dolphins signed Thomas, who spent his first three NFL seasons with them before being released in August. A second-round draft pick by the Dolphins in 2011, Thomas has a career average of 3.6 yards per carry with 11 touchdowns. From wire reports COLLEGE FOOTBALL BRIEFSMiami backup QB Olsen faces chargesMIAMI University of Miami backup quarterback Kevin Olsen has been arrested on charges of driving under the influence and possession of a fake or stolen drivers license. Miami-Dade County jail records show Olsen was booked at 4:11 a.m. Monday and was released on $6,000 bail. Police said Olsen failed field sobriety tests and had five different drivers licenses on him. Athletic Director Blake James said Olsen was suspended indefinitely from the team pending further review. The 19-year-old redshirt freshman from Wayne, New Jersey, was suspended for two games earlier this season for violating team rules. Olsen is currently fourth on the Hurricanes quarterback depth chart.No. 1 Florida States injured starters returnTALLAHASSEE Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said starting defensive tackle Eddie Goldman would practice Monday after suffering an ankle injury against The Citadel in the Seminoles home opener. Starting nose guard Nile Lawrence-Stample and defensive lineman Justin Shanks will both be limited in practice, but are close to returning after suffering lower leg injuries in that Sept. 6 game. Fisher announced the injury updates during his Monday press conference. Starting cornerbacks P.J. Williams and Ronald Darby also practiced after dealing with nagging hamstring injuries. From wire reports The reserve curse Bucs have lost at home to a pair of backup QBs Associated PressTAMPA Austin Davis felt right at home making his first NFL start. A third-stringer in training camp, Davis threw for 235 yards without an interception Sunday to lead the St. Louis Rams to a 19-17 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Theres always a lot of pressure, but the ability to stay calm and execute the plan is what allowed us to be successful and eventually get a win, the second-year pro out of Southern Mississippi said. You really just try not to think about it. Greg Zuerleins fourth field goal, a 38-yarder with 38 seconds remaining, won it. Davis threw 13 yards to Lance Kendricks on third-and-1, 15 yards to Brian Quick on second-and-9, and 27 yards to Austin Pettis on third-and-9 to set up the winner. I cant say enough about Austin. ... I felt like hed be OK because of the entire weeks worth of preparation, coach Jeff Fisher said. He was very poised. ... Nothing overwhelming to him. He made really good decisions against a good defense, an injurydepleted defense, but a good defense. Davis completed 22 of 29 passes for 235 yards with no interceptions. Zac Stacy had a 2-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, and Zuerlein also made field goals of 36, 35 and 46 yards to help the Rams (1-1) rebound from a lopsided season-opening loss to Minnesota. Davis made his debut in that game after Shaun Hill was injured, throwing for 192 yards but also having an interception returned for a touchdown. The Bucs (0-2) lost to a reserve quarterback at home for the second straight week. Carolina backup Derek Anderson beat them in the season opener, but at least hes a 10-year veteran with more than 40 career starts under his belt. Bobby Rainey, standing in for the injured Doug Martin, rushed for 144 yards for Tampa Bay. Quarterback Josh McCown scored on runs of 1 and 5 yards, and Patrick Murray kicked a 36-yard field goal for a 17-16 lead with 5:15 to go. In the end, the Bucs fell short in part because of a blocked punt that led to a St. Louis field goal, as well as an interception and a blocked field goal that denied them oppotunities to score more points. McCown also had them on the move in the closing seconds for a possible game-winning field goal, when the game ended abruptly after rookie Mike Evans was slow getting up after a 29-yard reception to the St. Louis 32. Officials stopped the clock with 8 seconds remaining and Evans was eventually helped off the field, But by rule, an injury timeout in that situation requires a 10-second runoff, and the remaining time was wiped off the clock. Unfortunately he just took a hard hit. Mike was just trying to find his bearings, I think, and so the refs blew (the whistle for an injury timeout), I guess. Its unfortunate because I felt like we were getting to the spot where we wanted to let (Murray) take a swing at it. The injury-depleted Bucs dont have much time to prepare for their next game, which is Thursday night at Atlanta. After that, they go on the road again to face Pittsburgh. Challenging part of Miamis schedule arrives Associated PressTampa Bay Buccaneers outside linebacker Jonathan Casillas (52) attempts to block a pass Sunday by St. Louis Rams quarterback Austin Davis during the fourth quarter in Tampa.

Inside:Best Foot Forward/C2 Ear, Nose & Throat/ C3 Urology Today/C4 CARLYZERVIS Chronicle correspondentNobody would argue that that time of the month isnt annoying at best and miserable at worst, affecting mood, daily activities and comfort. But sufferers of endometriosis experience different, more extreme levels of discomfort and more serious health consequences as a result of their monthly cycle. Endometriosis is a chronic disease in which, during the routine shedding of the endometrium (uterine lining), the body retains some menstrual fluids, which then abnormally implant in areas outside the uterus. No definitive cause is known, but according to the Endometriosis Foundation of America, stem cells, genetic factors, problems with immune response and environmental factors may all influence the onset of the disease. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has also suggested the disease may be more likely to occur in relatives of those who have been diagnosed with the disease. Once implantation has occurred, material accumulates generally on the bladder, bowel, ovaries and other nearby organs. This leads to the development of adhesions, or scarring and invasive nodules due to accumulation. The main symptoms of endometriosis are painful periods, fatigue, infertility, pain during intercourse, chronic pelvic pain, urinary and rectal pain and gastrointestinal problems like diarrhea, constipation and nausea, according to the Endometriosis Association. Diagnosis is usually made using laparoscopy, using one or more small incisions in the abdominal or pelvic areas to gain access with a small camera to inspect the areas of concern. Local obstetrician and gynecologist Dr. Scott Redrick of Suncoast Obstetrics and Gynecology has years of experience treating patients with endometriosis. Endometriosis has to be diagnosed with surgery, laparoscopy, he said. Sometimes you do a biopsy, if theres a question. Unfortunately, due to the nature of its symptoms, endometriosis is often misdiagnosed as pelvic congestion or pelvic inflammatory disease and in some cases, also as appendicitis, ovarian cysts, colon cancer, fibroids, irritable bowel syndrome or diverticulitis, says the Endometriosis Foundation of America. Women sometimes spend years managing their discomfort and other symptoms with painkillers and hormones without a firm diagnosis. The foundation also claims while the average sufferer is 27 when she is first A painful, sometimes misdiagnosed condition See PAINFUL/ Page C3 Q.I read your article in the newspaper, and I wanted to ask you a question. I have a large tori on the roof of my mouth. I was told that it would have to be removed in order to get dentures. I was just wondering if you knew of any alternatives. I would appreciate a short reply if you had the time.A.This is a great question that has come up so many times in my office. As usual, it is hard to answer it completely without seeing you; however, I will give you my thoughts on it. A tori is an overgrowth of bone and can be seen either in the upper jaw the maxilla, or the lower jaw the mandible. These tori can pose a problem for both a full denture and a partial denture. The main factor in whether or not it needs to be removed is how big it is and, in the case of the lower, where it is in relationship to where the lower denture will lie. I have seen many dentures successfully made over the tori. In some cases the same acrylic used for a regular denture is used, while in other cases a cast metal palate is made. I have also made a few with a horseshoe-shaped palate, avoiding covering the tori completely. The latter is the most common way for me to deal with it when a patient refuses to have the tori removed. It actually works quite nicely, as long as the patient understands the shortcomings of handling it this way. Another option is to have implants placed and use them to hold your denture in. Doing this keeps any restorative material of the denture away from the tori. My suggestion is to sit down and talk to your dentist about your scenario. When you sit down face to face and talk about what the goals are I have found that a good compromise is usually found. I hope things go well for you.Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S.

M.D. to discuss targeted drug therapyChronic pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. Approximately 100 million American adults are affected by chronic pain. For many, oral pain medications, such as opioids, are a mainstay in the legitimate treatment of their chronic pain. But oral pain medications can have negative side effects and are widely misused and abused. In response to growing concerns about oral pain medicine use, Dr. C. Mark Fallows, pain management specialist, will present Targeted Drug Therapy for Chronic Pain at noon Friday, Sept. 26, at Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center. People with chronic pain (pain that lasts longer than six months) are invited to learn more about targeted drug therapy as an alternative to traditional pain management options. Targeted drug therapy uses an implanted pump to release pain-relieving medication directly into the fluid surrounding the spinal cord where pain signals travel. Targeted drug therapy enables the physician to control the precise amount and incidence of pain medication available through the device. The patient can also manage pain levels using the devices handheld patient programmer. Space is limited; registration is required. Call 352-795-1234.

Sept. 17 Yoga Class 10a.m. Sept. 19 Smoking Cessation Class noon to 2p.m.C2TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER16, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE HEALTH& LIFE Q.Is it OK to continue my walking for exercise even with my plantar fasciitis?A.Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of a strong band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot. It helps to maintain arch height, absorb shock and increase the mechanical efficiency of the foot. The plantar fascia attaches to the heel at one end and the ball of the foot with slips to all the toe joints at its other end. It is very strong, but is also vulnerable to injury with direct trauma, overuse or in individuals with tight calf muscles. Heel pain due to plantar fasciitis generally occurs when the plantar fascia ligament begins to become inflamed and fail at its attachment point on the heel. The inflammation results in tissue softening or weakness, and the fascia is slowly pulled off the heel due to increased tension on the ligament. This pulling or tearing of the fascia off the heel bone not only produces pain when first stepping down, but also results in bleeding at the tear site and calcification of the attachment as the condition progresses. Pain in the heel upon first standing after a period of rest is a cardinal symptom of plantar fasciitis. Radiographs may reveal a bone reaction or puffiness of the bone, or a distinct spur formation. Contrary to popular belief by many patients, the spur itself is rarely the cause of any pain, but simply an indication that the fascial attachment point at the heel is moving in response to the abnormal tension. Stretching exercises are a mainstay in trying to accelerate this process of plantar fascia stretching. The faster the attachment point at the heel relieves tension, the sooner the pain will resolve. That is why stretching exercises for the plantar fascia and calf muscles are an integral part of any treatment plan. Activities such as walking, yoga, golf and water aerobics will also help to treat this problem by gently stretching the fascia and calf muscles. So you can certainly continue your walking for exercise, as this helps to gently stretch the fascia. In contrast, I usually advise patients to refrain from activities such as step aerobics, tennis, running or climbing ladders or stairs as these activities may either stretch the fascia too quickly or simply add to the inflammation by beating up the heel.David B.

HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, SEPTEMBER16, 2014 C3 diagnosed with the disease, most women with endometriosis have pain and symptoms for up to a decade before their diagnosis is confirmed. Fortunately, once the diagnosis is confirmed, treatment with laparoscopic excision surgery held up as the gold standard of endometriosis treatment by the Endometriosis Foundation of America is often very successful. The Endometriosis Foundation of America claims that the surgery removes all forms of the disease, restores normal organ placement and function and eliminates symptoms, including pain, and can often resolve infertility, as well. Unfortunately, there are few qualified professionals in the country who perform the surgery. Most people are diagnosed in their 20s and 30s. It affects about 6 to 10 percent of the population, said Redrick. Treatment varies widely depending on their age and what they want to do as far as fertility goes. The most definite treatment is a complete hysterectomy. If a patient wants to preserve their fertility, they are generally treated with medications such as various forms of birth control and anti-inflammatory medications. Other treatments include other laparoscopic surgeries such as ablation, cauterization and vaporization through the laparoscope; these are forms of incomplete removal and offer at least temporary relief. Some patients symptoms may be at least partially relieved with diet changes. Hormonal treatments other than birth control are also available, such as aromatase inhibitors, which are designed to temporarily suppress estrogen levels. Hormonal treatments only provide relief while the drugs are taken, however, and recurrence after the drug therapy is stopped is common. PAINFULContinued from Page C1 As we know there are many super bugs that have developed through the years as a result of indiscriminate antibiotic use and bacteria becoming resistant. Years ago, we were concerned about methicillinresistant staph aureus also known as MRSA. Lately, weve even been scared by the ebola virus, although its not a problem in the United States. A new super bacteria called CRE is starting to become a problem like the MRSA bacteria. CRE which is short for carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae is in a group of bacteria that seems to have become resistant to antibiotics, even the strong ones. Just like MRSA, which seem to be initially very highly concentrated in the southeastern U.S., this super bacteria called CRE is also starting to show up. I can assure you it wont take long before this is a national problem. It first surfaced and came up on the radar to authorities in 2008 and over a four-year period there has been a fivefold increase in the number of reported cases. Some experts feel this is grossly underestimated. Right now, this bacteria mainly affects the elderly, the weak and the ill, as well as hospitalized patients or patients in extended-care facilities like nursing homes. But if it follows the course of other bacteria, it wont be long before it is in the general population. Some of the reasons it can spread out into the community is the fact there are some lapses in infection control at hospitals and extended-care or long-term-care facilities and some doctors are too quick to prescribe antibiotics in response to a patients insistence that something be done for a cold, sore throat or cough. Most of these are viral in nature and will resolve on their own, but patients want a quick fix and dont want to be ill. They do not understand they may be harming themselves long term. The thought of this bacteria spreading is very scary. In 2001, there was one facility where the bacteria was isolated; as of 2013 it has spread to 46 states. We are currently in what has been dubbed the post-antibiotic period. What that means is weve developed antibiotics and now were ending this period of development of newer and stronger antibiotics, which makes this super bacteria even more scary. Remember: Wash your hands frequently and dont be so quick to pressure your doctor for an antibiotic, as you may be creating a bigger problem down the road.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River. Call him at 352-795-0011 or visit CrystalCommunityENT.com. Dr. Denis GrilloEAR, NOSE & THROAT New super bacteria causing concern Recently, a reader contacted me regarding the topic of bone cancer. She was concerned so many people she knew seemed to have cancer of the bone, and was interested in obtaining more information about this topic. Today, we will cover a cancer that is actually extremely rare. When I say that cancer of the bone is rare, I mean those cancers that actually begin in the bone. It is certainly not unusual for cancers from various locations such as the breast, lung and prostate, to spread from those parts of the body to the bone. This, however, is not truly bone cancer, but is metastatic cancer from another site which has spread to occupy certain areas of the bone. A true cancer of the bone is a tumor which originates within the bone from cells of that bone. In the human body, there are 206 bones which serve many different purposes. They support our body, they protect our internal organs and they serve as anchoring locations for the muscles of our body to allow movement. The bones also serve as a storage location for the bone marrow, which is the soft, spongy portion in the center of many bones which manufactures and stores many of our blood cells. When a cancer begins in the bone, it is called a primary bone cancer. Every year in the United States, only 3,000 people are diagnosed with a primary bone cancer. These can occur in any bone in the body; however, they are much more commonly seen in the arms and legs. Children and young adults are much more likely to develop bone cancers than are older adults. Cancers which begin in the bone are referred to as sarcomas. There are several types of sarcomas which can develop, and each type begins in a different type of bone tissue. Three of the most common types of bone sarcomas are called osteosarcoma, Ewings sarcoma and osteosarcoma is the most prevalent type of bone cancer diagnosed in young people. It is most commonly found between the ages of 10 and 25, and seems to affect males more often than females. It is generally found to involve the long bones of the body, mainly the arms or legs. It generally forms at the beginning. A second type of primary bone cancer is called a Ewings sarcoma. It, again, is generally found in young people between the ages of 10 and 25 years of age affecting teenagers most often. This tumor is much more common in the hip bones and the long bones of the thigh and upper arm region, but can also be seen with relative frequency in the ribs. In comparison to an osteosarcoma, this cancer generally forms in the middle. The third most common type of primary bone tumor is known as a chondrosarcoma. This type of tumor actually forms in the cartilage found in and around the bones, which is generally associated as being the rubbery tissue around the joints themselves. This type of tumor is found mainly in adults. There are some other types of primary bone cancers which are quite rare, but can be seen, and these are known as fibrosarcomas, malignant giant cell tumors, and chordomas. These rare cancers more commonly affect adults older than 30. The most common symptoms of bone cancer depend upon the type of cancer, the location and the size of the tumor. The symptoms related to a bone cancer tend to develop very slowly over time, with pain being the most frequently described symptom. Sometimes a firm, tender lump on the bone can be felt through the skin. Also, occasionally, bone cancer can weaken a bone and lead to a fracture, which may be the initial reason for diagnosing an abnormality. Numerous tests such as plain X rays, CT scans and MRI scans are utilized in the diagnostic workup of a cancer and eventually a biopsy of the lesion must be obtained to determine the proper diagnosis. Bone cancer, depending upon the type, is then treated with surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy or a combination of those. Surgery is part of the treatment for the majority of bone cancers. In the past, amputations were quite common; however, with the advent of advancements in radiation therapy and chemotherapy, we are often able to do limited surgical resections and then supplement the treatment with radiation therapy and chemotherapy to prevent an amputation. While you can see that primary cancers of the bone are quite rare, it is not uncommon to find other types of cancer which spread to the bone. When dealing with a cancer which spreads to the bone from another site, the treatment of that cancer will depend upon where the primary cancer originated.Dr. C.

Alcoholics Anonymous: If you drink, The management of prostate cancer has changed considerably during the past 20 years. Active surveillance (AS) or observation is an increasingly used management strategy for low-risk prostate cancer in selected individuals. When patients are diagnosed with prostate cancer, their urologist evaluates the risk of disease progression based on factors including their PSA (prostate-specific antigen) level, microscopic appearance of their cancer in the prostate biopsy (Gleason score 6 to 10), and the findings of the prostate digital examination (that determines the stage of the disease). The age of the patient at the time of diagnosis and patient preference are also important factors in decision making. Patients with low PSA levels (below 10), low Gleason score of 6 and involvement of only a small area of the prostate (stage T1 or T2a) are classified as having low-risk prostate cancer. Low-risk prostate cancer has low risk of progression to lifethreatening disease. Patient with such cancers may be offered watchful waiting as an option in addition to surgery, radiation or cryotherapy (freezing) of the prostate. Recently, molecular genetic tests that provide additional information about the aggressive nature of the cancer have become available. PTEN and ERG are genes that have been found to be associated with prostate cancer. The PTEN gene is found in normal cells and helps suppress prostate cancer. Loss of the gene can lead to uncontrolled growth of prostate cancer cells. Deletion or amplification of the ERG gene may indicate a more aggressive prostate cancer. Studying the molecular nature of the prostate tissue is giving clinicians additional information to individualize the treatment for patients with prostate cancer. PTEN and ERG prognostic biomarker tests are done on the same samples taken from the prostate at the time of biopsy. Additional sampling is not required. These tests are particularly useful in patients with certain prostate cancers (Gleason scores 6 and 7) and help guide the urologist in recommending whether watchful waiting is a good option for that particular patient. For example, a normal ERG and PTEN result denotes low aggressive nature, while 2-plus ERG indicates poor prognosis and treatment is recommended. Not all patients with a diagnosis of prostate cancer require aggressive treatments. With advancing cancer research, we are able to personalize the treatment of prostate cancer. During the next few years, we expect further refinements in individualizing the treatment for patients with kidney, prostate and bladder cancers. Udaya Kumar. M.D., FRCS Urol, Dip.

HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, SEPTEMBER16, 2014 C5 Cancer of the colon and rectum is the third most common cause of cancer in the U.S. It affects roughly 140,000 men and women every year. It is a highly preventable cancer. Colorectal cancer most often begins as a polyp, a noncancerous growth that may develop on the inner wall of the colon or rectum, as people get older. If not treated or removed, a polyp can become a potentially lifethreatening cancer. Recognizing and removing precancerous polyps can prevent colorectal cancer. Therefore, our goal should be to detect and remove polyps and early cancer of the colon. This can save many lives. For this, a colonoscopy is the best test. Unfortunately, it requires cleaning of the whole colon. Lots of people hate it with a passion and dont undergo this lifesaving test. Another alternative option is testing the stool for blood. It is easy, but less effective. Recently, the FDA approved a new test called Cologuard. This test analyzes stool specimens to detect hemoglobin, DNA markers and the total amount of human DNA contained in cells shed by colorectal cancer or advanced adenomas into the colon. A positive result may indicate the presence of CRC or advanced adenoma and should be followed by diagnostic colonoscopy. Cologuard is indicated to screen adults of either sex, 50 years or older, who are at typical average risk for CRC. Cologuard is not a replacement for diagnostic colonoscopy or surveillance colonoscopy in high-risk individuals. The safety and effectiveness of Cologuard was established in a large clinical trial that screened almost 10,000 individuals and compared the performance of Cologuard to the fecal immunochemical test (FIT), a commonly used noninvasive screening test that detects blood in the stool. Cologuard proved superior to FIT in accurately detecting cancers and advanced adenomas. Cologuard detected 92 percent of colorectal cancers and 42 percent of advanced adenomas, as compared with FIT screening, which detected 74 percent of cancers and 24 percent of advanced adenomas. However, Cologuard was less accurate than FIT at correctly identifying patients who were negative for colorectal cancer or advanced adenomas. In other words, positive Cologuard tests are more accurate than negative tests. This test is new armamentarium for detection of early colon cancer or polyps and can save lives. This is not meant to replace colonoscopy. This test should be done in addition to colonoscopy. Since it is easy, it may be done more often than colonoscopy. At the same time, this is likely to be more expensive than FIT and so will be done less often than FIT.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Dr. Sunil GandhiCANCER & BLOOD DISEASE New test for colon cancer can help save lives September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month. As an ovarian cancer survivor, I decided to share some prevention tips and my story. Ovarian cancer is known as the silent killer, as there are few symptoms such as bloating, heartburn and some pelvic discomfort. This is difficult to detect or question, as women have these symptoms often. There are two tests for prevention. One is a vaginal ultrasound, the other is a blood test, CA125. I experienced exceptional care from Shands in Gainesville. Their team is renowned for gynecology oncology. Please take the time to have preventative testing. I was 29 years old and had emergency surgery for a 14-centimeter borderline serous carcinoma tumor with no history in my family. I followed up with Moffitt Cancer Center; they wanted to immediately remove the other ovary. Statistics prove that if you had the cancer, even borderline in one ovary, you are most likely to have it in the other one. Considering my age, I chose a second opinion at Shands. Dr. Linda Morgan was an angel sent from heaven. She personally accepted me as a patient into her private practice, even though she was not accepting any new patients. She told me if I wanted another child, she would personally care for me. I now not only have Hannah, but another beautiful, gifted daughter sharing the name Morgan after this precious soul. Dr. Morgan took excellent care of me and delivered Morgan in 2002. She is very proud to have a child named after her. She told me to have the other ovary removed within a few years. Life is busy. Nobody wants to have preventative surgery, so we tend to avoid these issues. I continued with my yearly exams and was reminded every year of Dr. Morgans order. Finally, 10 years later, the order for surgery became a demand. Even though my test results were normal, I proceeded to have the other ovary removed as a preventative measure. During surgery, the biopsy showed results of borderline serous carcinoma ovarian cancer. Upon recovering, I was informed of the results and immediately started crying, giving thankful prayers. My advice to all is to never be too busy for such important matters in life; also, listen to your oncologists, as they only have our best interests at heart. May a cure be found for cancer and may God strengthen all of those who suffer. If you have any questions, need a friend or complimentary services during chemo, please message me.Lillian Yai Yai Knipp has 20 years of international hairdressing experience and has been a Citrus County business owner since 1996.

NEWS NOTES Webster defines parody as a counter-song: a literary or musical composition imitating the characteristic style of some other writer or composer. Audience of One is a Christian parody band that performs songs from the 1950s to the s top hits with a spiritual slant at the Holy Grounds Caf and Coffee Shop at Calvary Chapel in Inverness. Last weeks concerts opening act was Shades of Gray from Crystal River, featuring Tom Gray and John Mulkey, vocalists and guitarists, singing uplifting, contemporary and original music. Their set included an original piece, Michael and Sandra, about a boat captain and a massage therapist. Holy Ground followed about the miracles it implies. First Light assured us that faith over worries works every time. Time You Hope challenged us to embrace the power within us and call it our own, to make our memories today and be all that we can be. They closed out their set with an Elton John piece, Do You Know What I Mean? with lines like, Love is the key you must turn, and Freedom is love and the reason we are here, sharing with those we hold dear. The Audience of One parody band featuring lead singer Paul Giglio, an acoustic group of guitarists, sax and bead board artists, wowed the gathering of fans with their parodies of all the classic favorites. Opening with a surprise guest whistler, 83-year-old Ormie Benson, a local care center resident, who whistled Yellow Bird perfectly, garnering thunderous applause. Listening to All You Beautiful People was the bands first number. Then Trustin in Jesus featured Mark Taylor, soloist. With Hebrews 3:15 in mind, Giglio sang Say Yes Today and Just Believe to the tune of the Beatles Yesterday. There was a parody of the Doobie Brothers hit as it became Jesus is Alright With Me. A beautiful Byrds Turn, Turn, Turn was meaningfully parodied next. The all-time favorites continued with the Monkeys Im a Believer and the Platters Only You, each with a powerful message. Alabamas Play Me Some Mountain Music and Willie Nelsons On the Road Again became I Cant Wait to Get on My Knees Again. The Long Black Train featured Frank Miller on sax with Victory in Jesus as the meaningful parody. The Rascals Ive Changed was next followed by Ole Time Rock and Roll as Ole Time Religion, also featuring Miller. The powerful voice of Giglio shone with the Everly Brothers Let It Be Me as it became He Set Me Free. Michael Jacksons Ill be There became Just Call His Name and Hell be There. The Rascals Good Lovin became All I Need is Gods Love. Whitney Houstons dynamic hit, The Greatest Love of All became The Greatest Love of All is Jesus Christ in Me. With this song, Giglio possibly broke the worlds record for holding the closing single note. The Eagles Take it Easy was a crowd pleaser as the groups harmony shone with The Sweet, Sweet, Sweet Spirit will never let me down. The Roy Orbison standout hit Pretty Woman became: Pretty woman wont you pray for me, Godly woman, wont you live Gods way ... Sinatras and Elvis My Way became: Jesus did it thy way. The record shows He took the blows and did it thy way. The closing set featured audience participation with the popular, spirit-filled songs, Ill Fly Away and Theres Power in the Blood. Giglios testimony was followed by his signature song, I Can Only Imagine. The concerts are free. The next two will be Oct. 3 and Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. It was a thoroughly entertaining evening blending the classics with the spiritual, evoking reflection and contemplation.Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community.

Thompson, now retired, has been an educator for 30 years, teaching at all levels from kindergarten to college. She also was a principal and served in school administration. Civil dialogue seems to be a dying skill.

Special to the ChronicleLocal attorney Marie Blume of Inverness will discuss all aspects of guardianship and financial planning at a public presentation at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 17, at the Chet Cole Life Enrichment Center (CCLEC) at the Key Training Center. Planning for the future is important to everyone, but caregivers to those with developmental disabilities face problems most people cannot imagine. A loved one may only need financial help, or may need physical assistance in every aspect of life. Other aspects of planning include whether a caregiver will need to continue making medical decisions or to make decisions about family planning or interactions with the justice system. Planning for a crisis is insurance that a loved one will not have to handle it alone. Most of us are happy to care for our children, whatever their needs, but we all worry about the future. How do we plan? The important decisions include whether to seek guardianship of a child and, if so, what kind. (And remember, a child becomes an adult at age 18, no matter what the degree of disability or situation.) Guardianship can range from managing banking services to Power of Attorney up to full (plenary) guardianship. The CCLEC is at 5521 Buster Whitton Way, on the Lecanto campus of the Key Center. For more information, call Stephanie Hopper at 352-344-0288. Blumes session will be followed by a short meeting of the Key Center Family Connection (KCFC).

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER16, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Trent Reznor, a singer-songwriter, composer and record producer, said, Being a rock and roll star has become as legitimate a career option as being an astronaut or a policeman or a fireman. That is an interesting list of comparisons when you contemplate the various incomes from those professions. In this deal, though, the key word is option. Which option should South choose? He is in three no-trump. West leads the heart jack and East plays his seven. How should South continue? West has a textbook weak two-bid, North has a textbook takeout double, and South has a clearcut jump to three no-trump. It is just a pity that the contract isnt laydown. South has only eight winners: four spades, one heart (trick one) and three diamonds. He has to establish a club trick, but that will involve losing the lead twice and will give the defenders a chance to run the heart suit. If West has a high club, the contract is unmakable. So South must assume that East has the club ace and king. However, if declarer takes the first trick and immediately plays a club, East will get in and return his second heart. Then South will go down three, losing five hearts and two clubs. South has another option at trick one: Let West take the trick. Now the contract makes; declarer will lose only two hearts and two clubs. You will often have two options at the bridge table, whether in the bidding or play.

(N) (Live) ParksParks Dear Annie: My best friends husband is having an affair with his sister-in-law. I have firsthand knowledge of this and also heard it through several different, unrelated sources. They are pretty blatant about being seen together. My friend needs to get rid of this creep. I believe hes a serial cheater who thinks he can get away with anything. Why else would a reasonably intelligent man risk losing everything, including his home and children, over this? I want to tell her, but dread hurting her. If she doesnt believe me, it could end our friendship. But we live in a small town, and its only a matter of time before she finds out. Then shed be angry because I kept the information from her. Keeping this to myself feels as if I am betraying her, and its getting harder and harder for me to be around her. This friendship is important to me. What do I do? Tell her or wait for the hammer to fall? Best Friend in Trouble Dear Friend: There is another possibility: that your friend already knows and has chosen not to deal with it. But in a small town, you are right that she will find out. You can express your concern without accusing her husband directly. Simply point out that he seems to be spending a lot of time with his sister-in-law, and if he were your husband, youd check it out. Then leave it alone. Dear Annie: My friend asked me to be her maid of honor and then drove me nuts. She had crazy ideas and didnt consider anyone elses financial situation. It was all about her. She ordered dresses for us that were hideous and arrived with only a week to spare. The other bridesmaids and I convinced her to look for another dress, but although we shopped an entire day, she found nothing she liked. I found a dress on my own, but she didnt approve of it. Finally, I sent her an email saying that I no longer had time to find an appropriate dress that was to her liking, and I would not be upset to be removed from the wedding party. I asked whether it was still OK to attend the rehearsal dinner and help out. My friend never responded, and then she made an announcement at the rehearsal dinner that she had chosen someone else as her maid of honor. She claimed I didnt want to give a speech and thats why I bowed out. I was hurt that she would announce this in front of everyone and then lie about the reason. She told me afterward that she still wanted me in the wedding party and another girl would get me the dress. So I ended up purchasing three dresses for her wedding that I could illafford. I left the wedding early because I was so hurt. She later sent me an email saying she did what she thought best. She never apologized. Is this a good friend? Did I do anything wrong? Disappointed Dear Disappointed: You expected to be dealing with a friend, but you got stuck with Bridezilla. This is not uncommon. Some brides become so selfishly focused on their own desires that they feel entitled to demand any sacrifice. The good news is, this phase usually passes in time. But if you believe this selfishness is simply your friend letting her true colors show, you are better off without her. Dear Annie: Thank you for running the letter from Up Close and Personal, who tried chlorophyll tablets for bad breath. I had a similar problem. No matter how many times I brushed my teeth and tongue, I still had a terrible taste in my mouth. Since that letter appeared, I have been taking two chlorophyll tablets every day, and I feel so much more confident.
