Woman fatally shot after threatening deputies with weaponA Homosassa woman died Saturday evening following an altercation with law enforcement officers. According to a report from the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, just before 6p.m. Saturday, deputies were dispatched to South Alita Terrace in Homosassa in reference to a woman threatening suicide. The woman, identified as 49-year-old Kela Souter of Homosassa, reportedly had already discharged her weapon. Another person in the house was escorted out of the residence by deputies. Deputies made entry into the home in an effort to get the Souter to put down her weapon. She then pointed her weapon at a deputy, the report states, at which point he fired his weapon, hitting her. Souter was transported to Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center, where she later died. Next of kin has been notified. Its never an easy situation when a life is lost, Sheriff Jeff Dawsy said in a news release. This is a terrible event that unfolded. It appears that the officers acted appropriately and were justified in their actions. We send our condolences to the family during this difficult time. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement was at the scene and working with CCSO on the investigation. The news release stated deputies involved in the incident will be placed on administrative leave, which is standard operating procedure. A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerWater district officials are getting set to run through 19 scenarios they recently unveiled regarding the health and management of one of this states iconic rivers the Withlacoochee. The 160-mile-long river flows northward from its source in the Green Swamp near Orlando, through berms, ditches, dams, the Tsala Apopka Chain of Lakes, and the Lake Rousseau Reservoir before it flushes out into the Gulf of Mexico. For nearly 200 years, the natural flow of the river has been significantly altered by natural and manmade events. The Green Swamp is designated by the state as an area of critical concern. The rest of the basin has had bouts of water flow issues, low water levels, pollution and floods. Southwest Florida Water Management District officials came up with the scenarios after a more than decade-long series of studies and outreach initiatives for stakeholder input and developed a comprehensive computer model of the river and its source, the Green Swamp near Orlando. Modeling like this is unprecedented, said Mark Fulkerson, senior professional engineer in SWFWMDs water resource division. It gives us a tool to look at the entire watershed and the alterations that watershed experienced historically and what could be the best methods to manage it and engage in restoration work where it SEPTEMBER 21, 2014Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best CommunityVOL. 120 ISSUE 45 $1 CITRUS COUNTYFootball: No. 3 Bama rolls past Gators /B1 IN THEIR WORDS:TrailblazerVietnam veteran Joe Ponds talks about his experience as a pilot. /Page A14www.chronicleonline.com Annies Mailbox......A12 Classifieds................D5 Crossword..............A12 Editorial....................C2 Entertainment..........A4 Horoscope................A4 Lottery Numbers......B3 Lottery Payouts........B3 Movies....................A12 Obituaries................A6 Together..................A18 Veterans . . . .A14 INDEX NEWS BRIEF HIGH88LOW70Partly cloudy, 30% chance of storms.PAGE A4TODAY& next morning SUNDAY AIR CONDITIONING AND APPLIANCE, INC.

I have no legs, what do you want me to do? Young said. If you could see someone is disabled, why not give them a parking permit? When renewing his disability parking decal in person at the Citrus County Tax Collectors Office in Inverness on Monday, Young was informed by staff he would have to acquire a certificate from his physician proving that he is disabled. Young is a veteran and regarded as a local champion for the homeless and those seeking employment. In December 2008, Young was admitted to a VA medical center where, after nine months of intensive care, he had to See TAG / Page A8 Law requires physicians note MORE INSIDE Save Our Waters Week events./ P age A7 Annual cleanup a success./ P age A3 SOWW guest columns./ Commentar y From staff reports INSIDE

The Lakeland Ledger reported that the 38-foot-tall, 50-ton, Tudor-style mansion will be relocated today using an 18-wheeler truck. Workers estimate it will take about three hours to move the home to a new location about a mile away. From staff and wire reports Page A3SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerOf the 22,000 calls Nature Coast EMS responds to each year, 18 percent are from falls. In dollars and cents, that accounts for $59 million in medical costs related to falls (hospital, rehab, etc.) in Citrus County every year. Falling is a serious health concern in Citrus County. To help combat this, Nature Coast EMS, Audibel Hearing Centers and Tuscany on the Meadows is offering a Strong Today, Falls-Free Tomorrow event from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on National Falls Prevention Day, Tuesday, Sept. 23, at Tuscany on the Meadows inside the Quality Inn & Conference Center at Citrus Hills. From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., seniors are invited to take advantage of free health screenings blood pressure, blood sugar levels, hearing, vision, hypertension, balance and coordination and others. Pharmacists will be on hand to talk about medications and a representative from the Citrus County Sheriffs Office will be accepting old medications for safe and legal disposal. Then from 1 to 3 p.m. seniors can take part in a Matter of Balance presentation. Refreshments will be available during the event. Admission is free. We are all about improving the health of our community, said Katie Lucas, Nature Coast EMS spokeswoman. We started Matter of Balance classes sponsored through Elder Options and funded through Elder Affairs, but those classes are limited to only 14 people and run for eight weeks. So, when we found out about National Falls Prevention Day we thought what better time to offer free health screenings for things that are related to falls and a brief Matter of Balance presentation. Lucas said the Matter of Balance program has been extremely popular and successful. Also, since November, the Mobile Integrated Health Care Program has monitored calls for service, flagging frequent calls from people and then sending a community paramedic to visit in the home to look at peoples medications and look around the home to detect reasons they might be falling. Since weve been doing that, the 18 percent falls calls have dropped to 15 percent, Lucas said. Thats 300 fewer falls and $10 million saved. For information, call 352-249-4730. Event focuses on fall prevention for seniors PATFAHERTY Staff writerA convicted sex offender caught in a 2010 multiagency undercover sting operation and sentenced to state prison may be headed back to Citrus County Circuit Court. Matthew Pirie, 29, was one of 22 men arrested during Operation Grim Reaper in October 2010. The sweep targeted people who used the Internet to solicit sex from children He was 25 at the time and a resident of Beverly Hills. Pirie was arrested on charges of traveling to meet a minor to engage in unlawful sexual activity with a child, use of the Internet to seduce, solicit, lure or entice a child to engage in unlawful sexual activity and use of the Internet to seduce, solicit, lure or entice a parent or guardian of a child to consent to unlawful sexual activity with the child. He was convicted in July 2011 and received a 12year sentence. Pirie has filed at least two appeals with the Florida Fifth District Court of Appeals. His most recent was for postconviction relief, defined as challenging a judgment of conviction. In an opinion filed last month, three appeals court judges upheld one of Piries claims, which concerns an alleged double jeopardy violation, being prosecuted or punished twice for the same offense. It sent the claim back to Judge Richard Howards court for reconsideration. However, Wednesday, Pirie filed a motion to have his appeal reconsidered by the entire court. A decision on the motion is pending. A lawsuit in U.S. District Court-Middle District of Florida against the Citrus County Sheriffs Office is still active with a time extension on a plaintiffs motion, which was set to expire this past week. The suit concerns a shooting incident in March 2012 when Nicholas D. Dinovo was shot by a Citrus County deputy. According to reports, when Deputy Lauren Newton responded to a house after a 911 call, she found Dinovo in the driveway with a handgun. Authorities said Dinovo ignored Newtons verbal commands and instructions, and she shot him. He was hospitalized and charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer. He was convicted last year and sentenced to state prison. Dinovo, 33, filed the handwritten lawsuit in January as a complaint under the Civil Rights Act naming Newton and Sheriff Jeff Dawsy as defendants. The suit charges he was unlawfully shot four times and grievously wounded. The suit is demanding a jury trial and seeking $2 million for medical expenses and $5 million in punitive damages. However, Dinovo, who is currently incarcerated, had trouble serving papers on the defendants as required. He filed a motion requesting additional time to serve Newton and Dawsy and on Aug. 20 was granted a 30day extension.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924. Operation Grim Reaper conviction under appeal CourtDIGEST ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerCitrus County is a little cleaner today, thanks to 41 groups and hundreds of dedicated volunteers who sprawled out across the Nature Coast removing waste from local waters. The national effort is in conjunction with Citrus 20/20 Incs 19th annual Save Our Waters Week Sept. 20 to 27 during which diverse activities, fundraisers, tours and workshops educate the public on how to enhance conservation. Saturdays event, the 25th annual Lakes, River and Coastal Cleanup, was not focused directly on any humans but instead marine life. People really seem to be enjoying themselves, because they are finding so much trash and they know that they are making a difference, said Colleen Fail, third-grade teacher at Crystal River Primary School. The school had the most registered volunteers with 168; the Citrus County Airboat Alliance followed with 107. We come down here and swim quite often and want to help clean up the environment. It aggravates us when we see garbage floating around in the water, said Sharon Grizler, mom of CRPS second-grader Nicholas Peavy. We found foam cups, rolls of duct tape, a small dead snake and lots of cigarette butts. Last weekend, we saw a duck that had a soda can tab stuck to its neck. It was very depressing that we couldnt help. Fail said CRPS volunteers were covering blocks surrounding Hunter Springs Park in Crystal River. The popular items found were bottle caps, takeout containers, pony tail holders and balloons, but manly cigarette butts. Participants throughout the county wore rubber gloves, water shoes and white T-shirts as they loaded trash bags with garbage. All debris found Saturday was recorded on an Ocean Conservancy form. The organization will compile and analyze the national data and then publish an item-by-item, location-by-location report of findings. STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleVolunteer Clay Goetzner, holding a trash bag at left, finds some trash off of Ozello Trail on Saturday during the Adopt-A-Shore/Coastal Cleanup Program while Daiki Yamaguchi takes a photo as fellow group members look on.

However, the VR company still isnt ready to release a consumer edition. The hew headset intended for creators of VR experiences is nicknamed Crescent Bay and features a higher resolution and refresh rate, integrated headphones and 360-degree head tracking. That was not easy, Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe told the audience Saturday at the companys first-ever developers conference. Its still not perfect. None of this is perfect yet, but its much, much better. Oculus headset covers a users eyes and can create immersive worlds that react to head movement. The original prototype of the Oculus Rift headset was unveiled in 2012 and has received considerable attention from film and video game makers. Oculus released a second prototype headset to developers earlier this year. Iribe said 100,000 development kits have been shipped to 130 countries. The Irvine, California-based Oculus VR Inc. was acquired by Facebook earlier this year for $2 billion. Oculus recently teamed up with Samsung to introduce Gear VR, a $200 headset with a slot for using the Galaxy Note 4 smartphone as a VR display. Iribe reiterated several times during his talk at the Oculus Connect conference that creating a sense of presence would be integral for the widespread adoption of VR technology, which continues to leave some users feeling queasy despite Oculus strides in creating lower latency and more realistic imagery inside the goggles.Ferguson plays it loose with new game showLOS ANGELES Craig Ferguson approached his first TV game show hosts job with a subversive attitude. Then came the simple matter of his wardrobe for Celebrity Name Game. I thought, Im not going to wear a suit. Im going to break that rule, Ferguson said. Wrong decision, he quickly realized, after taping the first few episodes of the syndicated daytime show debuting Monday. When I watched the shows back, I couldnt tell who was in charge, he said. On came the business suit, fitted over the sly, irreverent style that his nighttime fans know from CBS The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. He wouldnt have tackled a game show without the opportunity of making it his own, he said. I liked this one because the format was loose and it left a lot of room for playing around and improvisation, he said. And its a new format, which meant that people werent in love with the game itself and wouldnt get mad at me if I started messing around with it. The challenge, Ferguson said, is to mess around while still observing the rules of the game. Hes getting the hang of it as he tapes 180 episodes in a threemonth production window, with hopes that the show is renewed so he can do more mischief. Courteney Cox is confident hes right for the job. The Cougartown and former Friends star is an executive producer on the show along with her ex-husband, David Arquette. Craig is the perfect host, Cox said. He is hilarious, irreverent and so spontaneous. He is unflappable and really enjoys himself, which is contagious for everyone around him. The show, based on the board game Identity Crisis, pairs celebrities with contestants to figure out using improvised clues the names of actors, singers, athletes, politicians and other famous folk. Celebrity guests include Sheryl Crow, Vivica A. Fox, Billy Gardell, Lisa Kudrow and Mena Suvari. Cox and Arquette also step in front of the camera.

is needed, Fulkerson said. The project is called the Withlacoochee Watershed Initiative. Fulkerson said his agency seeks use the information gathered via the modeling and match it with the real impact on communities and the river basin. He said the results will probably not fit everyones recipe for a solution, but that the scenarios were born out of exhaustive scientific study and analysis. Fulkerson said the initiative was initially begun by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 2000 and that his agency took it over in 2006. The majority of the 19scenarios fall within the boundaries of Citrus County and include some of the following: Wysong Chronically low water levels in the Tsala Apopka lake system have suggested that the Wysong-Coogler Water Conservation Structure should be raised higher. The model will assess the regional impacts of raising the structure. State Road 200 Capturing excess water near S.R. 200 may help alleviate flooding during high water events and provide available water for public supply. The model will simulate a storage reservoir near S.R. 200 and assess regional water level differences. Entire river Water levels throughout the watershed are critical for comparing scenario results with current conditions. The model will simulate statistical storm events with higher starting water levels for additional comparisons to specific model scenarios. Tsala Apopka Existing berms in the Flying Eagle Preserve may affect water levels in the Tsala Apopka lake system. The model will simulate the interaction between Tsala Apopka and the Withlacoochee to better understand the berms significance. Green Swamp Railroad berms and drainage ditches in the Green Swamp, built decades ago to support logging and other industries, may have significantly altered the direction and amount of water flow through the Green Swamp. The model will simulate their removal. Green Swamp Bridge pilings from old railroad trams have created logjams across the main channel of the Withlacoochee River in the Green Swamp. The model will simulate their removal and compare river flows and water levels with and without these log jams. The results of the modeling will then be presented to the public and stakeholders at workshops. Chester Bradshaw, a retired Dade City rancher and environmental activist, isnt quite convinced about the plan. Dont get me wrong, I am glad they came up with these scenarios, but what I dont like is the approach they are taking to fix the problems, Bradshaw said. Bradshaw is an advocate of an approach he calls repair, replace and rebuild everything naturally. Something similar to the rice paddies in Southeast Asia a process where restoration emphasis begins in the Green Swamp, increasing water flow and step-by-step, letting the river naturally flow downstream to its terminus in the gulf just like it used to be before people started manipulating it. Bradshaw said this also would ensure better recharge and surface water storage. He advocates returning the river to its natural sheet flow by reintroducing rocks that were removed decades ago and restoring the Green Swamp. Bradshaw said doing those things in addition to removing of the manmade structures in the Tsala Apopka lake chain should allow for a natural flow of the river from the Green Swamp to the Gulf of Mexico. Bradshaw said he has been working on ways to restore the Withlacoochee basin for 25years and is glad that a lot of his ideasLOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, SEPTEMBER21, 2014 A5 Blackshears II Aluminum 795-9722 Free Estimates www.blackshears.com Licensed & Insured RR 0042388 Years As Your Hometown Dealer 000J4SZ HWY. 44 CRYSTAL RIVER Rescreen Seamless Gutters Garage Screens New Screen Room Glass Room Conversions 2014 2014 2014 2014 527-0012 72 HOUR BLIND FACTORY FAUX WOOD BLINDS, TOP TREATMENTS DRAPERY, SHADES, SHUTTERS VERTICALS B LIND S 1657 W.

The Withlacoochee River is appro ximately 160miles long and originates in the Green Swamp, extending northward through eight counties before eventually discharging into the Gulf of Mexico near Yankeetown. The river is designated as an Outstanding F lorida Water by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Approximately 80percent of the Green Swamp, a designated Area of Critical State Concern because of its ecological and hydrological importance, lies within the headwaters of the watershed. Historical alterations due to na vigation, logging, mining and ranching have occurred as far back as the 1800s in the Withlacoochee River watershed. In addition to these alterations, the system has experienced extreme high and low conditions in recent decades due to natural fluctuations in rainfall and groundwater levels.Source: Southwest Florida Water Management District.

Associated PressNEW YORK Emmywinning actress and singer Polly Bergen, who in a long career played the terrorized wife in the original Cape Fear and the first woman president in Kisses for My President, died Saturday, according to her publicist. She was 84. Bergen died at her home in Southbury, Connecticut, from natural causes, said publicist Judy Katz, surrounded by family and close friends. A brunette beauty with a warm, sultry singing voice, Bergen was a household name from her 20s onward. She made albums and played leading roles in films, stage musicals and TV dramas. She also hosted her own variety series, was a popular game show panelist, and founded a thriving beauty products company that bore her name. In recent years, she played Felicity Huffmans mother on Desperate Housewives and the past mistress of Tony Sopranos late father on The Sopranos. Bergen won an Emmy in 1958 portraying the tragic singer Helen Morgan on the famed anthology series Playhouse 90. She was nominated for another Emmy in 1989 for best supporting actress in a miniseries or special for War and Remembrance. Talking to women in a business group in 1968, she said her definition of success was when you feel what youve done fulfills yourself, makes you happy and makes people around you happy. Bergen was 20 and already an established singer when she starred with Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis in her first movie, At War With the Army. She joined them in two more comedies, Thats My Boy and The Stooge. In 1953, she made her Broadway debut with Harry Belafonte in the revue John Murray Andersons Almanac. In 1957-58 she starred on the musical-variety The Polly Bergen Show on NBC, closing every broadcast with her theme song, The Partys Over. Also during the 1950s, she became a regular on the popular game show To Tell the Truth. Bergen published the first of her three advice books, The Polly Bergen Book of Beauty, Fashion and Charm, in 1962. That led to her own cosmetics company, which earned her millions. Bergen became a regular in TV movies and miniseries, most importantly in the 1983 epic The Winds of War and the 1988 sequel, War and Remembrance. She appeared as the troubled wife of high-ranking Navy officer Pug Henry, played by Robert Mitchum. Mitchum also had the key role in the landmark 1962 suspense film, Cape Fear, as the sadistic exconvict who terrorizes a lawyer (Gregory Peck) and his wife (Bergen) and daughter because he blames Peck for sending him to prison. The film was remade in 1991 by Martin Scorsese. In 1964s Kisses for My President, Bergen was cast as the first female U.S. president, with Fred MacMurray as First Gentleman. (In the end, the president quits when she gets pregnant.) When Geena Davis portrayed a first woman president in the 2005 TV drama Commander in Chief, Bergen was cast as her mother. Among her other films was Move Over, Darling (1963) with Doris Day and James Garner, Susan Seidelmans 1987 Making Mr. Right, and John Waters 1990 Cry-Baby, with Johnny Depp. Ingeborg Buonomo, 90LECANTOIngeborg Inge Buonomo, 90, of Lecanto, Florida, died Tuesday, Sept.16, 2014.

and environmental groups and said he voted for what he thinks is a good purchase and will eventually end up paying for itself after 25,000 additional square feet of space is rented out. Since the election, the man who defeated Kenney in the primary, Ron Kitchen, and others have been calling for a freeze in all big-ticket spending items until two incoming commissioners are seated in November. Commissioner-elect Scott Carnahan won his primary outright and does not have an opponent in the fall. Kitchen is facing no-partyaffiliation candidate Michael Joey White. Last week, when Kenney was asked if he was interested in heeding Kitchens and others suggestion to desist from voting on major spending items, his reply was: I was elected by the people of this county to be their commissioner and work on their behalf. Just because I lost does not mean I stop being commissioner or doing the work I was elected to do. I will continue to function as commissioner until that time when I leave office. He said he still believes the extra space in the building will be rented and believes it will bring in revenue. Its a good plan, Kenney added. Damato said his stance about the purchase remains the same and believes it is of great value to the citizens. Have you seen the place? It is very, very busy with citizens. They like the place and it is convenient for them. The citizens are being serviced, Damato said Friday. For me, its all about the citizens and they seem to like it and they are being serviced there, Damato added. The building was rented and serves as satellite office space for four constitutional officers: property appraiser, clerk of court, tax collector and supervisor of elections. The buildings owner, Gulf to Lakes Associates Ltd., reduced the initial price from $4.05million to $3.3million. Interim County Administrator Jeff Rogers said if the purchase is approved, the deal is expected to close Sept.30. Also on Tuesday, commissioners will: Vote on a final budget for fiscal year 2014-15. That vote is expected at 5:01p.m. as per state law. Provide staff and Tindale-Oliver & Associates direction regarding the 10 fiscal assumptions for the 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). And have a public workshop (information only) on the County Road 491 Overlay Land Development regulations. and suggestions for restoring the river have been incorporated into the scenarios plan, but he is still insisting on his position of natural restoration. Dont spend money buying rebar or concrete; use what is already there. You can bring back the rocks and it will do the same thing and get you the type of flow you want, he said. Restore natural systems through historical information of science and biology, Bradshaw added. He also is suggesting the water district rank the 19 scenarios according to priority in order to gain more value for the restoration process. I am just afraid that if they dont rank them and they get started on restoration, the money will be wasted on projects that need to be addressed, but not right now, he said.

CARRIESEIDMAN Sarasota Herald-TribuneSARASOTA On a blazing summer afternoon, cars vied for the few shaded parking spots outside Radiance of Sarasota, a storefront in a small strip mall billed as a wellness and inspiration center. Visitors, mostly aged 50-plus, entered the centers cool, dimly lit quarters, where theyre invited to help themselves to tea, pastel-colored pastries, glutenfree brownies and a seat within a large circle of chairs. They are not necessarily seeking radiance, wellness or inspiration. They are here to participate in a frank, openended discussion about lifes grand finale at the monthly Sarasota Death Caf. The idea? To provide a casual, comfortable space for people to discuss everything from the practical (legal documents and right to die legislation) to the ethereal (near-death experiences and the great Whats next?). The free gathering is based on the writings of a Swiss sociologist who believed talking openly about death could lead to a fuller, richer, more conscious life. If that sounds a little morbid, a growing number of people would disagree. Death cafs are just one of the ways a subject once taboo or at least uncomfortable is coming out in the open. Over the past year, Sarasota, with one of the oldest demographics in the country, has joined other communities across the nation in embracing frank discussions about the end of life everything from how to avoid dying in the hospital to advancing legislation in favor of physician-assisted suicide. A public lecture at the Selby Library by the president of the World Federation of Right to Die Societies in February drew a capacity crowd and went an hour overtime to accommodate questions. Two panel discussions with end of life experts sponsored by the Herald-Tribunein March following its publication of Dorothys Choice, the story of one elderly womans choice to end life on her own terms, were standing-room only. A 9 a.m. weekday screening in July of Consider the Conversation, an award-winning documentary that encourages people to plan ahead for their deaths, had to be moved to a bigger Lakewood Ranch theater to meet demand. And the Sarasota Death Caf, begun in May, tripled in size from the first meeting to the third. Even parents and children are more frequently broaching the once-taboo subject, though Joelle Angsten, chief medical officer of Tidewell Hospice, doesnt endorse the frequent suggestion to have the conversation over Thanksgiving dinner. Id recommend while youre in a car on a long trip, she said, only half in jest. That way you dont have to look at each other, but you cant escape. As the aging but fiercely independent baby boomers effort to control their own destinies clashes with modern medicines ability to sustain life to extremes, a backlash is building. This generation is determined to rewrite the script on dying, much as they have altered social acceptance of living together without marriage, nursing babies in public or samesex unions. But it wont happen, they say, unless we talk about it. No previous generations have had to figure this out, Angsten said. So theres no role model. But weve adopted so many things that support social change like maternity leave, for example. Wouldnt it be great if we could figure out how to do that at the other end of life? The first official death caf was organized by a 40-ish father of two, Jon Underwood, who hosted the initial gathering at his home in East London in September 2011. Underwoods mum, a psychotherapist, helped to facilitate. Theyre not being morbid, Underwood said at the time of the original participants. These are people who want to live more fully. The more we talk about dying and what it means about ego and self, the more we add to life. After he created a website, deathcafe.com, with instructions on how others could start their own chapters, the idea proliferated into a global movement. The first death caf in the United States was held in Columbus, Ohio, in 2012; there are now hundreds of regular gatherings in this country and more than 1,000 meetings have taken place around the world. The cafs which have no set objectives, agendas or themes, nor any profit motives reached Florida during the past year, with sessions held in Tampa, Naples, Gainesville and Ocala, as well as Sarasota. Not every death caf takes place in a public place. In Ocala, monthly meetings that began last October were moved from Mojos Grill, which proved too hot, noisy and distracting, to the comfortably middle-class living room of Teddy Laury. Jovial and direct, Laury is a native of the Netherlands, the first country to legalize physician-assisted suicide in 2001 and the catalyst for starting this first death caf in Florida. She is not accustomed to holding back her opinions on death or anything else, for that matter; the back of her SUV bears bumper stickers with environmental, political and religious slogans. Holland has always been a refuge for people persecuted for every reason, she said, with a gutteral accent. In the Netherlands, we talk about everything. So does this group of eight people plus one dog and two cats who met on the last Monday evening of July in a cramped circle, perched on an assortment of overstuffed chairs and furniture dragged in from the nearby screened porch. Donna Wright and her friend, Lee Hansen, arrived a few minutes late after the 30-minute drive from their home in Cross Creek. Wright promised her late husband she would not allow him to suffer during his death from cancer; Hansen worked for many years in hospice. Diane Podkomorski is an administrator at an assisted-living center looking to open peoples eyes to the fact that you cant wait until the last minute to make your plans. Don and Dave Laury, Teddys brothers-in-law, sat mutely on the couch; they were there because they are Laurys health care surrogates. At a previous meeting the group watched a Dutch documentary about assisted suicide. But at this one, like most, there is no visual or verbal prompt, just friendly, like-minded chat about what Hansen called our death-denying, death-defying world. Laury said she sees that attitude as particularly American. This country is all about winning and American doctors feel like they have to win the fight, she said. Whereas our doctors in Holland look much more at the quality of life. have both legs amputated due to complications with diabetes. According to assistant tax collector Barbara Good, this renewal process is a result of legislation adopted in October 2012 and enforced by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. This two-year-old subsection requires that any person issued a blue, permanent disabled parking permit renew the decal every four years and provide a certificate of disability approved by an appropriate physician within the past 12 months. While she questions logic behind the redundant process of reapplying for the parking permit, Good said her office has to follow the law, although it has requested an exemption. We feel terrible about it, but it was out of our hands, Good said. A statement by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles states the law was intended to prevent abuse of the application process: While a persons disability might be obvious in some instances, thats not always the case, said the release. Requiring that a doctors certification be presented when renewing a disabled parking permit is intended to protect the rights of those who are truly disabled and require special parking accommodations. John Young plans to get the certificate of approval from his doctor, but will continue to fight and relay his disapproval of this law to legislators, including state Sen. Charlie Dean, RInverness. This is ridiculous, Young said. They should be treating this on an individual basis.A8SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER21, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESTATE\LOCAL License #DN 17606 HONEST PROFESSIONAL COMPASSIONATE HONEST PROFESSIONAL COMPASSIONATE HONEST PROFESSIONAL COMPASSIONATE If you have been to If you have been to another dentist and another dentist and would like a second would like a second opinion about your opinion about your treatment, bring your treatment, bring your xrays and I will do a xrays and I will do a complete evaluation complete evaluation and develop a and develop a treatment plan treatment plan with you that fits with you that fits you and your needs. you and your needs.

Associated PressCANADENSIS, Pa. The suspect in the deadly ambush at a state police barracks in a remote part of northeastern Pennsylvania remained at large for an eighth day Saturday as police appeared to have narrowed their search, largely shutting down the area where he lived with his parents but leaving neighbors with few answers about whats going on just outside their front doors. With a helicopter flying overhead, law enforcement officers wearing bulletproof vests and armed with rifles continued their hunt for Eric Frein, 31, now on the FBIs Most Wanted list. Our troopers are determined to find him and bring him to justice, state police spokeswoman Maria Finn said. Police released few details about their search of the heavily wooded community in the Pocono Mountains, saying only that they were exercising extreme caution. Authorities say Frein used a high-powered rifle to open fire from the woods near a state police barracks on Sept. 12, killing Cpl. Bryon Dickson a married ex-Marine with two sons and wounding Trooper Alex Douglass. Frein described by authorities as a self-taught survivalist with a grudge against police has been on the run ever since, authorities said. But some who know him said he has not always played the loner, and the reason for his hatred of police remained a mystery. Frein belonged to the rifle team at Pocono Mountain High School, and as an adult joined a group that performed military re-enactments based on Cold War battles in Eastern Europe. He even played a small role in a 2007 movie about a concentration camp survivor earning him a mention in the movie database IMDb and helped with props and historical references on a documentary about World War I. He was a very friendly guy to me, said Jeremy Hornbaker, who hired him for the documentary. We left on very good terms. Freins father, retired Army Maj. E. Michael Frein, told police that he had taught his son to shoot. He doesnt miss, the father told state police during a search of the family home, when he also disclosed that an AK-47 and a .308 rifle with a scope were missing. Lars Prillaman, who manages a small farm in West Virginia, knew Frein briefly from their time as military re-enactors. He said Frein was a different person eight years ago. The FBIs Most Wanted poster describes him as 6-foot-1, 165 pounds. State police said he cut his hair into a wide Mohawk in preparation for the attack. Police did not say how bigof an area they are combing, whether they believed they had F rein surroundedor how much longer it would be before residents could move about freely. A police dispatcher said there was a report of gunfire Friday night, but investigators released no information.NATION/WORLDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, SEPTEMBER21, 2014 A9 FREE ADMISSION Sponsored by InGrannyDFootsteps.org which is endorsed by Common Cause, Move On, Move To Amend, and Public Citizen.

A nurses aide from Denver. The owner of a pizza-and-wings joint from upstate New York. Except for their embrace of Islam, theres no common profile for the 100-plus Americans who have traveled to Syria to join Islamic fighters or are accused of supporting them from the United States. Their reasons for joining an extremist cause a half-world away are as varied as their geography and life stories. Some seek adventure and camaraderie. Others feel a call to fight perceived injustice. But a common strain of disaffection, a search for meaning, seems to emerge, at times stronger than any motivation tied to religious devotion. What unifies all these folks is a desire to be recognized, a desire to find a cause that they can mold their life to, said Evan Kohlmann, who tracks terrorists with Flashpoint Global Partners. Foreign fighters from dozens of nations are pouring into the Middle East to join the Islamic State group and other terrorist organizations. U.S. officials are putting new energy into trying to understand what radicalizes people far removed from the fight, and into trying to prod countries to do a better job of keeping them from joining up. On Wednesday, President Barack Obama will lead a meeting of the 15-member U.N. Security Council as part of the effort to stem the flow of foreign nationals. Next month, the White House will hold a conference on the radicalization of Americans. Its an increasingly urgent matter now that the U.S. and allies are directly attacking Islamic State fighters. There are concerns of blowback that encourages more terrorism at home. Just last week, a post on a top jihadi forum urged American Muslims who cant reach the battlefront to wage an aggressive and sustained campaign of lonewolf attacks locally, according to the SITE Intelligence Group. As well, there are worries that fighters with U.S. passports will return home to carry out attacks in America or with airplanes headed to the U.S. The transition from everyday American to foreign fighter for a group that trumpets the beheading of its enemies may start with concern that fellow Muslims are being killed abroad. It often includes Internet chatrooms and online conversations with extremists. It may involve knowing someone whos radicalized. Many cite the teachings of radical U.S.born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen in 2011 but whose words are still influential. Moner Mohammad Abusalha, 22, who grew up playing basketball in Vero Beach, Florida, described his journey to jihadism in a video before he killed himself and 16 others in a suicide bombing in Syria last May. He mentioned both the teachings of al-Awlaki and the influence of friends. The college dropout, whose father was Palestinian and mother was Italian-American, said of his life as a Muslim in America: This never was a place for me. ... I was always sad and depressed. Life sucked. I want to rest in the afterlife, in heaven, he said. Heaven is better. Shannon Conley, 19, a nurses aide from suburban Denver, wanted to marry an Islamic extremist fighter she met online and thought she could use her U.S. military training to fight a holy war overseas. Conley pleaded guilty to trying to help Islamic militants and is awaiting sentencing. In the most recent case, 30year-old Mufid Elfgeeh, a pizza and food mart owner from Rochester, New York, was indicted last week for trying to help three people travel to Syria to join extremist fighters. A naturalized citizen from Yemen, Elfgeeh was arrested this year for buying guns as part of a plan to kill U.S. service members. Elfgeeh has pleaded innocent. While the ranks of foreign fighters from America include both naturalized citizens and the native-born, Kamran Bokhari of Stratfor global intelligence said second-generation Muslim Americans trying to balance two cultures could be particularly vulnerable. For all the concern about Americans who support Islamic militants, terrorism experts say the problem is much worse in Europe, where Muslims are not as wealthy or assimilated. Several hundred people from Britain have traveled to Syria, according to official estimates, and France and Germany have estimated a combined 1,300 of their citizens have joined the fight. Aaron Zelin, an expert on jihadi groups at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said roughly half the Americans who have joined the Islamic State group are converts to Islam. I would argue that they converted to jihadism, not necessarily mainstream Islam, he said. U.S. officials point to recent success at preventing major terrorist attacks, but Kohlmann said it would be overly optimistic to think the government can closely monitor every American who joins extremist causes. While the Islamic militants chief focus remains in Syria, he said there is plenty of rhetoric exhorting sympathizers to target Westerners. Take these people at their word. Because they mean it. Associated PressMufid Elfgeeh is taken out of federal court Thursday in Rochester, N.Y. Elfgeeh, accused of plotting to kill members of the U.S. military and others, pleaded not guilty Thursday to new federal charges that he tried to aid the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq.

Intruder makes it into White HouseWASHINGTON The Secret Service chief has stepped-up security outside the White House after a man who jumped the fence made it into the presidential residence before being apprehended, the Secret Service said Saturday, as President Barack Obama insisted he still has confidence in the beleaguered agency. Director Julia Pierson ordered enhanced officer patrols and surveillance just after the incident on Friday evening, which triggered a rare evacuation of the White House as well as renewed scrutiny about the agencys ability to protect the president and his family. The Secret Service said Pierson had also ordered a comprehensive review of what happened. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just left the White House by helicopter on Friday evening when the Secret Service says 42-year-old Omar J. Gonzalez scaled the fence, darting across the lawn and through the North Portico doors before officers finally tackled him.Ship runs aground by Statue of LibertyNEW YORK A 120-foottall schooner ran aground and got stuck in shallow waters near the Statue of Liberty on Saturday afternoon, officials said. No injuries were reported and the 121 tourists on board were ferried in small boats to a lower Manhattan marina. The Clipper City, a 158foot-long steel-hulled boat that has six sails, two topsails and two steel masts, hit something soft, like mud or a shoal and ran aground off Liberty Island just after 1 p.m., said Thomas Berton, owner of Manhattan by Sail, which operates the tall tourist ship. The Clipper City didnt take on any water and there were no reports of pollution, said U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Frank Iannazzo-Simmons.Teams assess damage as fire ragesPOLLOCK PINES, Calif. Assessment teams hoped to get an idea Saturday of just how many structures have been damaged or destroyed by a massive wildfire that threatens thousands of homes in Northern California. While officials confirmed that several structures have been lost in what is being called the King Fire, dangerous conditions have prevented them from determining an exact number, fire spokesman Mike McMillian said. Although record amounts of retardant have been dropped on the fire thats about 60 miles from Sacramento, the blaze spread another 6 square miles overnight. Nearly 5,000 firefighters from as far as Florida and Alaska are helping California crews battle the blaze. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS Unhand me!

In a statement, Pakistans National Disaster Management Agency said about two dozen people were killed in the past 24 hours in the eastern Punjab province, raising the death toll from rains and flooding to 346. It said flood waters wreaked havoc in Punjab province and were now passing through remote areas in the southern Sindh province, but so far no deaths had been reported there.Yemen sets curfew to stem fightingSANAA, Yemen Yemens top security body has imposed an overnight curfew in restive areas in the capital, Sanaa, after Shiite rebels took over the state TV building amid heavy clashes. The Supreme Security Commission said Saturday the curfew was being imposed in the north and west of the capital. Mohammed AbdelSalam, the spokesman of Shiite rebels known as Hawthis, said in a statement posted on his official Facebook page that his group took over the TV building after a heavy exchange of gunfire with troops guarding the building. All three state TV networks went off the air, and witnesses say the building was on fire. Days of clashes between Hawthi rebels and Sunni militiamen have left more than 140 dead and prompted thousands to flee. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressSyrian refugee women and children gather at the border Saturday in Suruc, Turkey. Several thousand Syrians, most of them Kurds, crossed into Turkey on Friday to find refuge from Islamic State militants who have barreled through dozens of Kurdish villages in northern Syria in the past 48 hours. Associated PressWASHINGTON The political parties, their campaign committees and some of their super PACs faced a Saturday deadline to disclose how much donors gave and how much operatives spent in August. Highlights from the filings:BILLIONAIRES STILL OPENING WALLETSHedge fund executive Tom Steyer continued to funnel cash from his personal fortune to his proenvironment super PAC, NextGen Climate Action. Steyer in August wrote his federal committee a $15 million check as it ramps up a political operation to help candidates who pledge to back legislation fighting climate change. Steyer has now given $26.6 million this cycle to his efforts, bankrolling it almost entirely on his own. NextGens next largest donor in August was a strategic adviser from Berkeley, California, who wrote a $2,500 check. Democrats bid to keep their majority in the Senate also got a boost from Chicago billionaire Fred Eychaner. He wrote Senate Majority PAC a $1 million check, taking his giving to the committee to $5 million. Senate Majority PAC raised close to $6 million last month from donors who face no limits to what they can give. The group, which has deep ties to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, has raised $39 million so far and spent $36 million of it to try to keep Democrats in control of that chamber. Senate Majority PACs sister committee, the House Majority PAC, raised $3.9 million.RNC BEATS DNCThe Republican National Committee again outraised its Democratic rival last month and is sitting on a $3 million lead. The RNC raised $10.1 million in August and has $14.5 million in the bank to pay for polling, data and get-outthe-vote efforts for Novembers elections. The filing also shows the RNC spent heavily last month, unleashing almost $9.5 million in spending.DEMS BEST GOP PANELSSenate Democrats campaign arm, defending a narrow majority heading into Novembers elections, spent more than $14 million last month. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee raised $7.7 million in August and spent almost twice that amount. Despite the aggressives pending, the group still has more than $25.3 million to unleash on ads against Republican candidates who are trying to pick up six seats needed to tip the chamber into GOP control. The National Republican Senatorial Committee raised $6.1 million in August and spent almost $13 million. The panel still has close to $20 million ready to spend, mostly on negative ads against a handful of endangered Democratic incumbents.

Filings show war chests growing as elections near Associated PressBEIRUTHundreds of Kurdish fighters raced from Turkey and Iraq into neighboring Syria on Saturday to defend a Kurdish area under attack by Islamic State militants. As the fighting raged, more than 60,000 mostly Kurdish refugees streamed across the dusty and barren border into Turkey, some hobbling on crutches as others lugged bulging sacks of belongings on their backs. The large-scale displacement of so many and the movement of the Kurdish fighters into Syria reflected the ferocity of the fighting in the northern Kobani area, which borders Turkey. Militants of the extremist Islamic State group have been barreling through the area for the past three days, prompting Kurdish leaders to plead for international help. Civilians seeking safety began massing on the Turkish border on Thursday. Turkey did not let them in at first, saying it would provide them with aid on the Syrian side of the border instead. By Friday, it had changed its mind and started to let in several thousand. The numbers grew quickly as more entry points opened, and by late Saturday afternoon, more than 60,000 had poured across the frontier, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said. Even by the standards of Syrias bitter war, it was unusual for so many refugees to flee in such a short time. Their numbers add to the 2.8 million Syrians who have become refugees in the past three years, and another 6.4 million who have been displaced within their own country nearly half of Syrias pre-war population of 23 million. Many of those who came across Saturday cradled young children or carried them on their shoulders. Kurtulmus said some refugees were staying with relatives, while others took shelter in schools or tents. Kobani is facing the fiercest and most barbaric attack in its history, said official Mohammed Saleh Muslim, head of Syrias powerful Kurdish Democratic Union. The groups members dominate the Syrian Kurdish group known as the YPK, which is fighting the Islamic State militants. On Friday, the president of Iraqs largely autonomous Kurdish region, Masoud Barzani, warned that the militant groups attacks on the Kobani area threaten the whole entirety of the Kurdish nation. The battle over Kobani is part of a long-running fight between the Islamic State group and Syrias Kurds that has raged across a band of Syrian territory stretching along the Turkish border from the north to the far northeast, where large numbers of Kurds live. The YPK is viewed with suspicion by many Syrian rebels and their Western supporters because of perceived links to President Bashar Assads government. That may be changing, however, as Kurdish fighters battle alongside some Syrian rebel groups against the Islamic State in northern and eastern Syria. Associated PressANKARA, Turkey Turkish authorities say they have freed 49 hostages from one of the worlds most ruthless militant groups without firing a shot, paying a ransom or offering a quid pro quo. But as the men and women captured by the Islamic State group more than three months ago clasped their families Saturday on the tarmac of the Turkish capitals airport, experts had doubts about the governments story. The official explanation sounds a bit too good to be true, said Sinan Ulgen, a former Turkish diplomat who chairs the Istanbulbased Centre for Economics and Foreign Policy Studies. There are some very legitimate and unanswered questions about how this happened. The hostages were seized from the Turkish Consulatein the northern Iraqi city of Mosul after the Islamic State group overran the city on June 11. How they traveled from Mosul to T urkey and why the Islamic State would relinquish such a useful bargaining chip remained unclear. Turkish leaders gave only the broadest outlines of their rescue Saturday. Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said the hostages release was the work of the countrys intelligence agency rather than a special forces operation. After intense efforts that lasted days and weeks, in the early hours our citizens were handed over to us and we brought them back, Davutoglu said. One former hostage, Alptekin Esirgun, told the state-run Anadolou Agency that militants held a gun to Consul General Ozturk Yilmazs head and tried to force him to make a statement. Yilmaz told NTV television Saturday the hostages were forced to watch videos of the beheadings of other hostages. Two U.S. journalistsand a British aid worker were recently beheaded by the Islamic State group. Turkish hostage rescue raises doubts Kurdish fighters head to Syria to face militants

That settled it for me, Im in. We share a taxi with another couple from the ship for the 45-minute ride out to the preserve. Two admissions and 2 pounds of food and we are good to go. Apparently, the animals are happy we are there, also, as they begin following us around and sniffing our pockets for the food. We are able to mingle with a wide assortment of wildlife. We interact with kangaroos, ostrich, llama, mules, rabbits, fish, cockatoos, wallabies, wombats and the crowning finale: Tasmanian devils. We return to downtown in mid afternoon do a little shopping, including a visit to Kmart where I bought a belt which broke the following day. We wander down to the waterfront and have fish and chips for lunch (the first of many). We take the shuttle back to the ship and arrive late in the afternoon.

HARPAZ AP Travel EditorNEW YORKFall used to be off-peak for tourism everywhere except New England and other fall foliage destinations. But autumn tourism is rising, with traditional summer hotspots increasingly busy September through November.For empty-nesters, baby boomers and others oblivious to school calendars, the appeal of a fall vacation includes hotel and airfare bargains, fewer crowds because kids are back in school and mild weather with the exception of the occasional hurricane. Lara Berdine and Mark Petrella, New Yorkers in their 40s, visit Italy each fall because its cheaper, the weather is cooler and we can see the country as it really is, rather than in high season when its inundated with tourists, said Berdine. You find people are more relaxed in stores and everyone is in a better mood. Ive been to Rome in the dead of summer and it was hell. Hilarye Fuller, a Knoxville, Tennessee, mom who writes a travel blog at DottingtheMap.com, figured a summer trip to Disney World in Florida would be miserably hot and supercrowded, so shes going in October. With kids ages 1, 3 and 5, We dont have to worry about school. Scott Berman, who analyzes the hospitality and leisure industry for PricewaterhouseCoopers, said September and October, when schools back in session, have historically been a slower period for leisure destinations. Not only are there fewer crowds, but its more economical. And not just for U.S. travel: You can fly to Paris for less than you would in July or August and get to see the Mona Lisa without crowds. But even traditional fall destinations see the season is getting busier. Autumn tourism increasing in popularity MARK PETRELLA/Associated PressThe church of San Biagio, outside Montepulciano, in Tuscany, Italy. Mark Petrella took the photo on a trip he took to the region with Lara Berdine on whats become an annual autumn vacation in Italy. Like a lot of travelers who are not tied to the school calendar, they like traveling that time of year because the weather is cooler, there are fewer crowds and its cheaper. See AUTUMN/ Page A13

A12SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER21, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: Has good taste gone out the window? I recently received an invitation to a baby shower. The invitation asks me to bring a gift, of course, but instead of a card, to also bring a book. I have never met any of the people involved in this shower, including the parents of the new baby or the woman hosting the party. I barely know the woman who is the new grandmother, and thats only because she lives in our subdivision. These blanket invitations went out to many women in the neighborhood. It is less an invitation to celebrate than it is a request for gifts from total strangers. Please ask your readers to limit these gift-giving invitations to friends and family. After all, gifts are expressions of love and have no meaning if they are from total strangers. Stunned in Texas Dear Stunned: You are right that shower invitations should go only to friends and family. Anyone who wants to meet the neighbors can invite them to a backyard barbecue. But as with any invitation, you can decline. (We do, however, like the idea of giving books.) Dear Annie: I take exception to your advice to Concerned Grandparent, who complained that people drank beer from their cars after Little League games. What has happened to being social and getting to know the other parents? It is far better than rushing the kids home to sit in front of the computer. Our children need more direct social interaction, not less. Just because someone enjoys beer doesnt mean he is a drunk. Lighten up. If you want to scurry away from the event with your child, that is fine, but let other people live their lives. Fed Up to Here with P.C. Dear Fed Up: Why must parents drink beer during a childrens sporting event? Have an ice cream party. Bring soft drinks. Save the beer for adult time and instead demonstrate that socialization doesnt require alcohol.Email anniesmailbox @comcast.net, or write to: Annies Mailbox, c/o Creators Syndicate, 737 Third St., Hermosa Beach, CA 90254.

Everything used to close on Columbus Day, and now the weekend after is one of the busiest, with the help of group tours trying to get foliage into their itinerary but at a little bit of a lower rate, said Jayne OConnor, president of the White Mountains Attractions Association in New Hampshire. Between Halloween events in October and Christmas-themed attractions opening in November, many attractions are now staying open straight up until the ski areas open. Fall on the beach Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, just launched a campaign called The Secrets Out: 60 More Days of Summer to attract visitors in September and October when we still have summerlike conditions very warm air temperatures and the water is still beautiful, said Scott Schult, executive vice president of the Myrtle Beach Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. One reason some folks like the beach in fall? Dogs are allowed! The dogs think theyre in heaven. You can even throw tennis balls in the water for them, said Craig Conroy, 69, who lives near Pittsburgh and vacations every September on Assateague Island in Maryland and Virginia. He loves dining out in the area, too: You get much better service because they assume youre a native, not a tourist. The tickytacky carnival things on the Ocean City boardwalk might be closed, but what they dont have open are things you dont really want. Florida also reports more fall tourists, especially among overseas visitors, who increased 20 percent October to December between 2011 and 2013. Panama City Beachs lodging revenue is up 56 percent for September and October since 2009. And while Labor Day in early September used to signal the end of Panama Citys tourist season, festivals from beach concerts to pirate-themed parties now attract visitors every fall weekend. National parks and the West Wildlife-viewing, foliage and cooler hiking weather have always fueled autumn tourism in the West, but some destinations report more fall visitors than ever. Yellowstone National Park had more than 500,000 September visitors for the first time in 2010, but theyve topped 500,000 every September since. Regional fall attractions include trout fishing and the Rendezvous Royale, a September festival in Cody, Wyoming. At the Zion Lodge in Utahs Zion National Park, tourism used to slow by mid-October, but now its strong into November, according to lodge general manager Daisy Hobbs. An annual outdoor arts event, In the Footsteps of Thomas Moran, is part of the draw. In New Mexico, September is nearly as strong as August, according to state tourism spokeswoman Jolene Mauer. The International Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque brings another spike in October. Colorados golden aspens and elk-mating have long drawn fall visitors, but as elsewhere, the season keeps getting longer. A half-dozen years ago, luxury guest ranch Vista Verde near Steamboat Springs closed in late September, but this year theres enough demand to stay open until Oct. 19. Americans at home and abroad Increased fall tourism is part of a larger recovery by the travel industry as the recession recedes. Hotel occupancy rates have inched up every September, October and November for the past four years, according to data from STR, which tracks hotel industry data. The U.S. Travel Association said the percentage of trips taken during fall has steadily increased from 23 percent in 2008 to 26 percent in 2012. Fall trips to Europe and group tours are up, too. U.S. Tour Operators Association said some members report double-digit growth over last fall, like luxury operator Abercrombie & Kent, with sales up 25 percent this September to November compared with 2013. David Rosner, co-CEO of smarTours, said the companys busiest months are September, October and November. More U.S. citizens have flown to Europe from the U.S. in September than in August for each of the past four years. Travel from the U.S. to Europe also increased each of the past four Octobers, according to Trans-Atlantic, an industry newsletter. Five years ago, Oceania Cruises ran its last trips in Europe at the end of October, but this year theyll have ships there through midNovember. Barbara Golden of St. Augustine said she was disappointed when booking her fall trip to the Rocky Mountains to find few bargains in hotels and car rentals. I guess, she said, the secrets out.

Page A14SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE VETERANS C.J. RISAK CorrespondentEven coming out of high school, Joe Ponds now known as Dr. Joe to many of those he taught after receiving his Ph.D. had a sharp sense of what was right. And what was wrong.When he got involved in the military in 1965, serving in Vietnam in 1969-70, he experienced some of both. Ponds grew up in Baltimore and, after graduating from high school, joined the ROTC while attending Morgan State College (now University). The U.S. involvement in Vietnam was escalating, and Ponds knew that by joining the ROTC he would likely see action there. It wasnt something he took lightly. I was committed to serve this country, do what I was supposed to do, Ponds said. It was my obligation. When I put that uniform on, when I signed those papers, I meant it. Ours was not to question why, we had to trust that our government had honorable intentions; that they were doing their best to keep us safe and to keep our country safe, and to do what they were elected to do, he said. We had to believe in that, we had to trust in that, because we were putting our lives on the line, thats what it was costing us. After completing his first two years of ROTC training, Ponds moved up to advanced ROTC where he found out about the Flight Instruction Program, which would give those interested a chance to get aviation training. However, there was a catch: Once the aviation training was completed, the pilot would have to add an additional year to the two years of active duty hed already committed to. Ponds signed on and began training as a helicopter pilot. After basic training at Fort Benning, Georgia, he was shipped to Fort Wolters, Texas, for four-and-a half months of basic helicopter training; then he went to Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, Georgia, for four-and-a-half more months of advanced helicopter training. By that time, Ponds had already experienced what large segments of the country were protesting against in the 1960s. He was the only black man in his aviation class, and the racism that plagued the country also invaded the military. A particular instance bothered Ponds. After completing all his basic training programs, he was due to get a 35-day leave before shipping out. But it didnt happen; Ponds, whose wife was expecting their first son, had his leave trimmed to 22 days. When they cut my leave, I was angry, he said. I felt like I was being disrespected, the way I was being treated, because of my race. Men of color always fought two battles, in all the wars we fought in. One was the enemy overseas, and then, secondly, there was racism at home in America. Im going to be putting my life on the line, but at the same time I still dont have the privilege of eating in public restaurants. These were situations that were prevalent, particularly in the South at that time, and Ponds experienced them while stationed in Georgia and, later, in Alabama. But when he got overseas, it became readily apparent that others would have to depend on him, and he was going to have to depend on them. Basically, we were part of a team, we all needed each other, he said. There were still some whites who were of the mindset that there was no way that a man of color was an aviator. They resented that. Pilots were already considered by many as something special, a designation sometimes given to them, sometimes awarded to themselves. But for a black pilot, often serving on a base without any other black pilots, it could be a lonely experience. We had to overcome that; we were by ourselves, Ponds said. We had to watch our own backs. A lot of them (whites) didnt think we were supposed to be there (as aviators) to begin with. Life as a helicopter pilot in Vietnam was never easy. Ponds flew the main troop transport the Bell UH-1 Iroquois, commonly known as a Huey. But despite some armament (most Hueys were equipped with two 60mm machine guns), pilots often felt like they were wearing targets. To fly a helicopter, you have to have two good hands and two good feet (for the controls), Ponds said. I was committed to serve this country, do what Iwas supposed to do. It was my obligation. When I put that uniform on, when I signed those papers, I meant it. MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleJoe Ponds served many years as a helicopter pilot in both the United States Army and United States Coast Guard.

So, basically, your hands and feet are occupied all the time. When you go into a landing zone, all you can do is sit there and pray that the enemy doesnt shoot you, because theres nothing you can do. he said. Youre responsible for one thing, and that is controlling that aircraft. Thats it. Every time we went into an area, whether it was putting troops in or taking them out, we were sitting ducks. Sometimes you could see where the fire was coming from, where the enemy positions were, and it was nothing for your helicopter to get shot up. And sometimes helicopters got shot down. Ponds, a captain when he left the Army, served in several units while stationed in Vietnam. He started at Dong Tam in the Mekong Delta flying combat missions, then served in the battalion operations center helping plan missions. He also served as a liaison officer between a South Vietnamese army unit and a U.S. aviation battalion, helping coordinate missions. After completing his tour of duty in Vietnam in April 1970, Ponds remained in the Army in various capacities until 1975. After having accepted positions with the National Guard in Kentucky and the Kentucky State Police, he was informed he had been awarded a direct commission as a lieutenant junior grade, to fly helicopters for the U.S. Coast Guard. I was one of six chosen among applicants from across the United States, and I was the first black to receive a direct commission as an aviator in the U.S. Coast Guard, Ponds said. I was only the third black pilot in U.S. Coast Guard history. Offered a choice where he wanted to be stationed, Ponds selected Florida. He would fly search and rescue missions out of Air Station Clearwater until 1980, when he became responsible for Coast Guard recruiting in the southeastern district (covering Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands). He would remain with the Coast Guard until 1986. VETERANSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, SEPTEMBER21, 2014 A15 DUTYContinued from Page A14 JOEPONDS Special to the ChronicleFor more than 44 years I had assumed that one of my flight school classmates, Bob Poland, had perished in an automobile accident following his tour of duty in Vietnam. Last year, April 2013, I was delighted to learn that I had been terribly mistaken and Bob was indeed alive and well. I was able to obtain his telephone number from the Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association (VHPA), call him and leave a message on his home telephone numbers voicemail. Approximately 30 minutes later, Bob returned my call. So, after having not seen nor spoken to each other since our tour of duty in Vietnam, we had a great time on the phone for the better part of two hours. We agreed to meet at the 30th VHPA Reunion in San Francisco (July 2013) to catch up after more than 44 years. Bob is a VHPA Life Member, but I had not joined as of then; so, in 2013, I became a VHPA life member and attended my first reunion. Of course, the war stories we shared were nonstop, but one of the most memorable was FlipFlops and Boxer Shorts.Flip-Flops and Boxer ShortsWhile in flight school, our instructors would often tell us that unless we paid close attention to what they said and did exactly as they instructed us, we would die in Vietnam. Well, since nobody wanted to die in Vietnam, they had our full and undivided attention. In order to make a point in the lesson, they would then tell us a story or give an example from their experiences in Vietnam. As Bob and I both remembered, the flight school topic under discussion was the importance of being always prepared to fly any mission, at all times and under any circumstance or conditions. The instructor then told us about a certain airfield in Vietnam that came under enemy mortar and rocket attack late one night, and the pilots and crew members quickly took shelter in the bunker. They were then immediately commanded to fly the helicopters to a safe location away from the airfield, so that the aircraft wouldnt be destroyed by enemy fire. All the helicopters were flown out without incident; however, one aircraft experienced mechanical failure and went down in the jungle. So, there was the flight crew, on the ground in the jungle at night, and with the exception of flight helmets, wearing nothing but flip-flops and boxer shorts! It was a very bad situation to be in, and we (flight students) were told to never, ever, ever allow ourselves to get into that kind of predicament. Before retiring for the night, we were to ensure that our flight suits, boots, personal weapon, etc., were stacked close to our bed in case we had to run to the bunker and subsequently be called upon to take flight. Bob and I arrived in Vietnam the same day and were assigned to the same unit. We were told that the place was called Dong Tam and its nickname was The Mortar Metropolis of the Delta because the Viet Cong (VC), our enemy, loved to attack our airbase with mortar rounds and rockets day and night. Sure enough, during our first night on base, the VC attacked as usual and as anticipated. When the first mortar round struck the base, a very loud and deafening sound from a siren began blasting, causing me to sit straight up in my bed (actually a cot). Bob and I had been told during our initial briefing (unit orientation) that we should run for safety inside the bunker whenever we heard the warning sound from the siren. Having internalized the Flip-flops and Boxer Shorts lesson from flight school, I was fully prepared at the first blast of the siren. I immediately jumped into my flight uniform which had been strategically placed near my cot, quickly pulled my boots on, strapped on my personal weapon (.38 caliber revolver), grabbed my flight helmet and away I ran to the bunker. Bob and I arrived at the bunker about the same time, and it just so happened that we were also the first to arrive. While we were waiting for the others to arrive, Bob shared that he had noticed that as we moved rapidly to the bunker, there were some guys on the second level (sun deck) drinking beer and yelling. We later found out that they were members of gun platoon (which Bob became assigned to later), and they were booing the incoming enemy rocket/mortar attack and cheering the outgoing counter rocket/mortar fire. So, there we stood in the middle of the bunker, smiling a little and feeling rather proud that we had each remembered the lesson about flip-flops and boxer shorts and thinking how proud our flight instructors would be to know how very well prepared we were at that moment. After several minutes went by, with the siren still blasting and the sound of Special to the ChronicleABOVE, LEFT: Joe Ponds with local friends in Vietnam.

mortar rounds exploding, we looked at each other, wondering if we were in the right location and why we were the only ones in the bunker. A few guys entered the bunker, followed by a few more and still others until all the pilots were assembled. Some came in dragging a bedsheet behind them, while others were half-wrapped in a poncho liner and collapsed in chairs that had been spaced around the inside of the bunker. All of the guys seemed to be quite angered and upset because their sleep had been disturbed by the mortar/rocket attack. Then it happened! First there was light chuckling, along with some very noticeable whispers, and then a loud roar of laughter broke out throughout the bunker because someone had noticed and began pointing to the two FNGs (funny new guys) standing in the middle of the bunker, fully clothed in flight gear while everyone else was clad in flipflops and boxer shorts!

The couple were married at Lutheran Epiphany Church in Detroit, Michigan, on Sept. 18, 1954. They met on a blind date set up by a cousin of Carolyns and a best friend of Claudes. Carolyn is a former double gold medal figure skater and toured the U.S. with the Skating Vanities. She also worked as a Fort Lauderdale AAA travel counselor for 10 years. Claude is a World War II Air Corps veteran, a retired sheet metal journeyman and did refrigeration in Saudi Arabia. He also holds a pilots license. The Millses moved from Farmington, Michigan, to Fort Lauderdale in 1968, where they lived for 21 years. They moved to Citrus Springs in 1989 and were very involved with Yankee Air Force at Dunnellon Airport for 10 years. Carolyn was the coordinator for bringing in the Collings Foundation World War II bombers a B17, B24 and B25 for seven years. They currently are involved as supporters of the Military Order of the Purple Heart Aaron Weaver Chapter 776 and American Legion Post 225 in Floral City, where Carolyn makes dog tags on a World War II dog tag machine. Claude is also a member of the VFW Mens Auxiliary 4864 in Citrus Springs.

Freshman Jillian Felton took third (20:51) and senior Alexis Ulseth took ninth (22:21) as the Pirates won their own meet with 54 points. Ulseth improved from the previous meet despite sand playing a factor at the course she said. Lecanto, led by junior Claire Farnsworths first-place individual win (19:40) took second. Seven Rivers Christian was fifth with 129 points and Inverness Citrus was sixth with 184 points. The Tampa Freedom boys won the team title with 43 points. Brooksville Nature Coast was second with 46, while the Pirates took third with 87 points. Inverness Citrus was sixth with 177 points. Dunnellon was seventh with 182 points. Seven Rivers Christian was 10th with 257 points. Nature Coasts Trevor Foley won the boys race with a 16:41 clocking. We knew that it was going to be close, Crystal River girls coach Deirdra Byrne said. I had my freshmen and my sophomores step up to the plate. Lexi Ulseth, my senior, took off another minute since last meet. Jillian had an okay race. It wasnt a fantastic time. It was muddy, cool, no sun. We had a great race. Lecanto girls coach Dan Epstein was happy with his teams efforts as well. They looked good, he said. Claire did a good job. She had a really good race. 19:40 is good for this time of the season. Obviously, its a fast course. This is one of the better courses around. There are no hills. Were getting there. The girls are improving each week. For the Crystal River boys, Caleb Russo had the best finish in eighth place with a time of 18:16, leading the team to third place. I was hoping for second, Pirates Pirates coach Tim Byrne said.

Pirates boys squad finishes third as girls take first at Crystal River Inivitational See PIRATES/ Page B3 Associated PressTUSCALOOSA, Ala. Neither Floridas defense nor Alabamas mistakes could contain Blake Sims and Amari Cooper. Sims threw for 445 yards, the secondbest passing performance in school history, and Cooper scored three touchdowns as the third-ranked Crimson Tide overcame a sloppy performance to beat the Gators 42-21 on Saturday. The Tide (4-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) committed 11 penalties for 80 yards and four turnovers that turned into 21 points for the Gators (2-1, 1-1), who still couldnt handle Sims and the prolific passing connection. Sims threw touchdown passes of 87 yards to Kenyan Drake on the opening play and 79 to Cooper later in the first quarter. Still, 400 yards for an Alabama offense known more in the past for bruising running games? I didnt think it was possible, Sims said. I just try to take what I take and what the defense gives me, and just try to trust my guys that theyre going to be there. Cooper, who came in leading the nation in receptions, caught 10 passes for 201 yards and three touchdowns. He broke Dennis Homans 47-year-old record of 18 career touchdown catches. Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Nick Franklin hit his first home run with Tampa Bay and Chris Archer pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning, leading the Rays to a 3-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday night. Franklin connected against Hector Noesi in the second inning, belting a drive to right after a leadoff double by James Loney. Franklin had to wait 79 seconds for a replay review to determine if it was fair after it hit off a catwalk at Tropicana Field. Franklin was acquired from Seattle in the three-team trade that sent David Price to Detroit on July 31. He was playing in his fourth game for the Rays, having been recalled from Durham on Monday. It was Franklins first homer since Aug. 29, 2013, with Seattle. Archer (10-8) allowed two hits and walked four in 6 1/3 innings. The right-hander is 2-0 with a 1.83 ERA in his last three starts. Marcus Semiens pinch-hit single off Jake McGee in the ninth, Chicagos only hit after the fourth, drove in the only run for the White Sox. McGee finished the inning for his 18th save. The Rays, who were eliminated from playoff contention Friday night, were seeking their 22nd shutout. Their current total is the most by any American League team in the 41 seasons of the DH era. Ben Zobrist had two hits for Tampa Bay, including an RBI single in the fifth. Noesi (8-10) gave up three runs and six hits in six innings. He is winless in four September starts.

DAngelo Roberts scored on a 3-yard touchdown run with 22 seconds remaining and Nate Sudfeld passed for 252 yards and a touchdown to help Indiana upset No. 18 Missouri 31-27 on Saturday. After giving up 10 consecutive points to Missouri in the fourth quarter, the Hoosiers (2-1) traveled 75 yards on six plays to reclaim the lead. Tevin Coleman ran 44 yards to the Missouri 15-yard line to setup the game-winning score. Coleman finished with 132 yards on 19 carries. Maty Mauk completed 28 of 47 passes for 326 yards and two touchdowns and Russell Hansbrough gained 119 yards on the ground for Missouri (3-1). The Tigers play at South Carolina next week to start a stretch of eight consecutive games against Southeastern Conference opponents.No. 13 Georgia 66, Troy 0ATHENS, Ga. Sony Michel ran for 155 yards and three touchdowns to highlight a big day for freshmen in No. 13 Georgias 66-0 win over Troy. Michel, playing behind Todd Gurley, had a 75-yard gain to set up his second touchdown. Among other standout freshmen for Georgia (2-1) were receiver Isaiah McKenzie, who scored on a 52-yard punt return, and Bryce Ramsey, who threw his first career touchdown pass. Dontreal Pruitt started at quarterback for Troy (0-4) as Brandon Silvers was held out after leaving last weeks loss to Abilene Christian with a concussion. The Trojans last 0-4 start was in 1982.No. 19 Wisconsin 68, Bowling Green 17MADISON, Wis. Melvin Gordon rushed for career highs of 253 yards and five touchdowns, and No. 19 Wisconsin ran for a Big Ten-record 644 yards to trample Bowling Green for a 68-17 victory. Gordon had 179 yards and four scores by halftime alone before dashing for a 69-yard touchdown on his first carry of the second half. He silenced any doubters worried about his 38-yard outing the previous game. The Badgers (2-1) forced two turnovers on back-to-back possessions by the Falcons (2-2) in the first half to break open a close game. Gordon capitalized each time with scores before closing the half with a 21-yard touchdown run for the highlight reel. The team rushing total was the most in the Big Tens modern era, dating back to 1946.No. 21 BYU 41, Virginia 33PROVO, Utah Taysom Hill threw for two touchdowns and rushed for another to lead No. 21 Brigham Young to a 41-33 comeback win over Virginia. The Cougars (4-0) trailed 16-13 at the half and lagged behind the Cavaliers in almost every statistical category but turned the game around with two third-quarter touchdowns. Adam Hine sealed the victory for BYU with a 99-yard kickoff return in the final quarter. Hill, averaging nearly 230 yards passing and 130 yards rushing per game, completed 13 of 23 for 187 yards and rushed for another 72 on 17 carries. He had only 29 yards rushing in the first half. Virginia (2-2) had to settle for four field goals by Ian Frye field on four possessions that went deep into BYU territory. The Cavaliers had 519 total yards to BYUs 332 and doubled the Cougars in time of possession. Hoosiers stun Mizzou with seconds left Louisville 34, FIU 3MIAMI James Quick caught two touchdown passes from Will Gardner 45 seconds apart late in the first half, Gerod Holliman ran one of his two interceptions back for another score and Louisville topped Florida International 34-3 on Saturday night. Quick finished with 174 yards 111 of them on the TD grabs on seven catches for the Cardinals (3-1), who got a touchdown run from L.J. Scott. Gardner threw for 295 yards, but he and Scott both left the game with injuries. Louisville led 28-0 late in the half, giving the Cardinals what was 100 unanswered points in the series after topping FIU 72-0 last season. Austin Taylor kicked a 28-yard field goal for FIU (1-3). Starting quarterback Alex McGough left in the third quarter after his third turnover of the night. Kickoff was delayed 1 hour, 5 minutes because of severe weather in the area.UCF 41, Bethune-Cookman 7ORLANDO Justin Holman threw a pair of touchdowns passes and Central Florida survived a slow start to run past BethuneCookman 41-7. The Knights (1-2) trailed 7-3 late in the first quarter before ending the game with 38 straight points. It was their seventh consecutive win over the Wildcats. UCF is now 20-0 against FCS foes since moving up to FBS in 1996. Bethune-Cookman (2-1) was trying to become the first Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference team to defeat two FBS schools in the same season. But the Wildcats offense struggled from the second quarter on, converting on just 3 of 13 attempts on third down, and giving up six sacks. They also were plagued by a seasonhigh 17 penalties.Wyoming 20, Florida Atlantic 19LARAMIE, Wyo. An 88-yard pass from Colby Kirkegaard to Dominic Rufran set up Stuart Williams 18-yard field goal with 15 seconds left to lift Wyoming to a 20-19 win over Florida Atlantic. Leading 19-17, Florida Atlantic was deep in Wyoming territory after the Cowboys failed to convert a fourth down with just over 2 minutes to play. But Jaquez Johnson fumbled after a hit by Mark Nzeocha and teammate Jordan Stanton recovered at the Wyoming 8. On the next play, Kirkegaard found Rufran wide open near the Cowboys 30 and the receiver raced all the way to the Owls 4 to set up the gamewinning kick. Shaun Wick had 111 yards on the ground for the Cowboys (3-1), while Jay Warren had 108 yards rushing for the Owls (1-3). D.J. Mays 5-yard scoring run to start the fourth quarter put Wyoming up 17-16 before Greg Josephs fourth field goal gave Florida Atlantic the lead back with 8:14 left. Johnsons 14-yard keeper, one play after a 65-yard punt return by Lucky Whitehead, gave Florida Atlantic its first lead, 13-10, with 8:56 left in the third quarter. Josephs 43-yard field goal upped the margin to 16-10.From wire reports Associated PressBATON ROUGE, La. Dak Prescott highlighted a dynamic performance with two touchdown passes and 56-yard scoring run, and Mississippi State held off a wild rally by No. 8 LSU for a 34-29 victory Saturday night that snapped the Bulldogs 14-year losing streak in the series. MSU led 34-10 in the fourth quarter, but LSU scored three late touchdowns. That set up a last-second desperation heave by LSU backup quarterback Brandon Harris, which was intercepted by Will Redmond at the goal line. Prescott, a Louisiana native, finished with 268 yards passing and 105 yards rushing while helping the Bulldogs (4-0) not only beat LSU (3-1) for the first time since 1999, but win in Tiger Stadium for the first time since 1991 about two years before Prescott was born. His touchdown passes went for 74-yards to Jameon Lewis and 9 yards to DeRunnya Wilson. Josh Robinson rushed for 197 yards and a touchdown.No. 6 Texas A&M 58, SMU 6DALLAS Kenny Hill had 322 yards of total offense playing only the first half, Jeremy Tabuyo turned two short passes into touchdowns and sixth-ranked Texas A&M rolled to a 58-6 victory Saturday at SMU.

Hill, the thrilling sophomore who succeeded 2012 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel as the starting quarterback, completed 16 of 22 passes for 265 yards with two touchdowns and his first interception at Texas A&M. His 58-yard run set up another touchdown as the Aggies built a 38-3 halftime lead in SMUs home opener. Tabuyo had a 30-yard TD from Hill, and a 50-yarder from Kyle Allen in the third quarter.No. 11 Michigan St. 73, E. Michigan 14EAST LANSING, Mich.

Alabamas 645 total yards was the most the Gators have allowed. The previous high was Nebraskas 629 yards in the 1996 Fiesta Bowl. Sims was 23-of-33 passing with four touchdowns, and was already up to 335 by halftime. That placed him a yard shy of the Tides Top 10 passing games. People have to respect his passing, Tide coach Nick Saban said. He has made too many plays for people not to respect him as a passer. Derrick Henry gained 111 yards on 20 rushes. Sims deflected much of the credit, saying that when you have Alabamas offensive line, receivers and tailbacks, Youre bound to have a good game. The Gators offense wasnt much more successful than its defense. Floridas Jeff Driskel was harassed and ineffective passing. He was 9-of28 passing for 93 yards and was intercepted twice while the offense produced just 200 yards. Driskel did run for 59 yards, but it got so bad that Florida legend Emmitt Smith called for the quarterbacks benching on Twitter. Demarcus Robinson, who had 15 catches in an overtime win over Kentucky, was held to two receptions for 14 yards. Florida failed in its bid for a statement-making performance after a 4-8 season and to perhaps lift coach Will Muschamp, whose mentor Saban was on the opposite sideline, from the hot seat. The Tides blunders kept the game from being even more lopsided. We had our chances and we didnt do it, Muschamp said. Thats the frustrating thing. It was all Alabama after Driskels 14-yard touchdown run tied the game at 21-21 early in the third quarter. That came two plays after Neiron Ball got his left hand on a Sims throw at the line and Antonio Morrison scooped it up for a 20-yard return. All three of the Gators touchdowns came after turnovers. Obviously everybody that watched the game could tell that there were some things that we did extremely well and some things (that) were pretty sloppy, Saban said. But I thought in the second half we really controlled the game. Alabama answered the tying score with a 16-play drive sustained despite two penalties and a sack. Henry dodged a couple of defenders for a 29-yard catch on third-and-23 and scored on a 3-yard run on the next play with 5:27 left in the third quarter. We didnt make the plays and they did, Driskel said. We didnt get it done. Its a matter of execution. It was a game of big plays. Alabama had a lot more than us. The Tide did get a scare when Sims went to the locker room after getting hurt on a 24-yard run late in the third quarter. He appeared to be clutching his right shoulder on the sideline but played again. Sims returned shortly after backup Jake Coker hit Cooper for a 4-yard touchdown and received a big ovation as he sprinted across the field to the sideline and congratulated Coker with Alabama having just extended its lead to 35-21. Saban said Sims had a bruised right shoulder, but the Tide has an open date next week to heal.

Associated PressNEW YORK Jose Bautista hit his eighth homer of the year against New York, Marcus Stroman pitched six gritty innings and the Toronto Blue Jays ended a season-worst six-game skid to beat the Yankees 6-3 and keep their faint playoff hopes alive. With eight games to play for both teams, Toronto is 5 1/2 games back for an AL wild card and the Yankees are 4 1/2. Danny Valencia hit a go-ahead, two-run double, helping hand the Yankees their first loss of Derek Jeters final homestand after two wins over Toronto. With most of the 47,292 fans at Yankee Stadium standing and chanting Der-ek Je-ter! his every at-bat, the retiring captain doubled and singled for his third straight multihit game. He also scored his 1,920th run to pass suspended teammate Alex Rodriguez for ninth place on the career list.AMERICAN LEAGUE Orioles 7, Red Sox 2BALTIMORE Adam Jones hit a pair of two-run homers and the Baltimore Orioles received another steady performance from right-hander Chris Tillman in a 7-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox. The AL East champion Orioles moved within two games of the Angels in the race for home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, pending Los Angeles late game against Texas. Tillman (13-5) gave up two runs and five hits in seven innings. He has allowed three runs or fewer in 20 consecutive starts, tied with Steve Barber for the second-longest such run in Orioles history behind Dave McNally (25). Jones connected against Rubby De La Rosa (4-8) in the third inning and Heath Hembree in the fifth.Astros 10, Mariners 1HOUSTON Chris Carter and Alex Presley hit two-run homers and the Houston Astros connected five times in all, routing Seattle 10-1 and preventing the Mariners from moving up in the playoff chase. The Mariners stayed one game behind AL wild-card leader Oakland and a half-game in back of Kansas City for the second slot. The As and Royals both lost earlier in the day. Matt Dominguez and Carlos Corporan added back-to-back solo shots and Jake Marisnick hit a three-run homer in the seventh inning as the Astros snapped a four-game skid. Chris Young (12-9) was tagged for seven runs in three-plus innings. Dallas Keuchel (12-9) pitched eight strong innings, striking out eighth. He also reached 200 innings in a season for the first time in his career.Tigers 3, Royals 2KANSAS CITY, Mo. Max Scherzer and the Detroit Tigers won their appeal on a wild play, and Joe Nathan escaped a ninth-inning jam to hold off the Kansas City Royals 3-2 and boost their AL Central lead. The Tigers increased their edge to 2 1/2 games over the Royals. Kansas City fell into a tie for the second wildcard spot with Seattle, which played later at Houston. Detroit, seeking its fourth straight division title, has won 13 of 18 against the Royals this year, including eight of nine at Kauffman Stadium. Scherzer (17-5) outpitched James Shields (14-8). The Royals put two runners on against Nathan, but he retired Nori Aoki and pinch-hitter Raul Ibanez on grounders for his 33th save in 40 tries. It was 1-all in the sixth when a line drive and a wild throw led to an appeal toss and a pair of umpire discussions that wound up ruling a Royals runner had left third base too soon.NATIONAL LEAGUE Rockies5, Diamondbacks 1DENVER (AP) Eddie Butler pitched six solid innings for his first major league win and the ColoradoRockiesbeat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-1. Corey Dickerson and Josh Rutledge homered for theRockies, who have won five straight for the first time since June 11-15. Butler (1-1) made his debut against the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 6 and went on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation the next day. He made nine minor league rehab starts before getting the ball Saturday.Cubs 8, Dodgers 7CHICAGO Chris Coghlan hit two homers, including the go-ahead tworun drive off Brian Wilson in the eighth inning, and the Chicago Cubs rallied to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-7. The Dodgers were looking to build on a 3 1/2-game lead over San Francisco in the NL West after clinching a playoff spot for the fifth time in nine years on Friday. Instead Los Angeles blew a five-run lead and wasted a pair of homers and five RBIs by Adrian Gonzalez. The Dodgers were up 7-2 in the seventh, but the bullpen couldnt hold the lead. J.P. Howell gave up an RBI single to Anthony Rizzo and a three-run homer to Arismendy Alcantara, making it a one-run game. Wilson (2-4) came on in the eighth and things just got worse from there.Mets 4, Braves 2ATLANTA The slumping Atlanta Braves were shut down by Jonathon Niese and lost 4-2 to the New York Mets, damaging their flickering playoff hopes. Atlanta has lost seven of eight to drop to 4-13 in September. Any combination of two Pittsburgh wins or Atlanta losses will eliminate the Braves from the NL wild-card race. Niese (9-11) allowed two runs and seven hits in 7 1/3 innings. The lefthander also struck out five and walked one while improving to 1-1 with a 2.14 ERA in his last three starts. Dilson Herrera and Curtis Granderson homered for New York, which has won three of four. The Braves (76-78) fell two games under .500 for the first time since they were 2-4 on April 12, 2012.Cardinals 8, Reds 4ST. LOUIS Tony Cruz hit a threerun homer and the St. Louis Cardinals connected three times, beating the Cincinnati Reds 8-4 and moving closer to their fourth straight playoff berth. The Cardinals cut their magic number to one for clinching a postseason berth. The magic number is six for their second NL Central title in a row. Kolten Wong and Randal Grichuk also homered as St. Louis won for the seventh time in eight games. Cincinnati has lost six in row and been outscored 30-8 in that stretch. Jason Motte (1-0) needed just three pitches and one out to earn the win. Mike Leake (11-13) took the loss.Nationals 3, Marlins 2MIAMI Ryan Zimmerman had two hits, including an RBI triple, in his return to the lineup and the Washington Nationals beat the Miami Marlins 3-2. Zimmerman, who missed 55 games because of a hamstring injury, had his run-scoring triple to key Washingtons three-run seventh inning. Asdrubal Caberas RBI triple tied the score at 2-2 and chased Miami starter Jarred Cosart, and Denard Spans single off reliever Mike Dunn put the Nationals ahead. Washington starter Jordan Zimmermann (13-5) gave up two runs and five hits over six innings. He struck out four and stayed in the game and finished the inning despite getting hit by a line drive from Casey McGehee to start the sixth. Second baseman Cabrera retrieved the ball and threw McGehee out. Drew Storen got the last three outs for his ninth save in 12 chances.INTERLEAGUE Phillies 3, Athletics 0OAKLAND, Calif. Jerome Williams beat the Athletics for the third time this season with three different teams, and Oakland missed an opportunity to extend its lead in the AL wildcard race with a 3-0 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. Freddy Galvis hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning against Dan Otero (8-2). Marlon Byrd added an RBI single in the eighth. The As remained a half-game ahead of Kansas City for the top wildcard spot. The Royals lost 3-2 at home to Detroit earlier Saturday. Williams (4-2) allowed four hits, struck out three and walked one in seven innings. He snapped a two-start skid with his first victory in five starts.

For more information contact Mary Ellen McCoy call 382-0577 501(c) 3 000J7JV Associated PressThose sputtering machines in New Orleans and Indianapolis had better fire up soon. Like now. Its somewhat stunning that the Saints and Colts, favorites to win their divisions, are 0-2. At least Indy fell to a pair of top teams, Denver and Philadelphia. The Saints lost at Atlanta, blowing a big lead, and then at Cleveland both on late field goals. With Carolina already 2-0 in the NFC South and Houston at 2-0 in the AFC South, well, gentlemen, start your engines. We are trying to make sure we uncover every stone and look closely at how we can find ways to make the corrections and hopefully we can get that done this weekend, Saints coach Sean Payton said. We just have to find a way to play our best game this weekend. Its important we do that, especially coming home. All hope is not lost at 0-2, of course. Last year, the Panthers dropped their first two games and then won the division, even earning a first-round playoff bye. Three teams have won the Super Bowl after going 0-2. And since 1990, 23 teams lost their first two matches and wound up in the postseason. You can point out every week if we did this, this and this wed be 2-0, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. We have 14 games left and the only thing that matters right now is Jacksonville. ... The record is the record. Were not going to sit there and dwell on anything other than Jacksonville. Week 3 began with an absolute rout in Atlanta, where the Falcons (2-1) beat Tampa Bay (0-3) 56-14. Matt Ryan threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns, Julio Jones hauled in nine passes for 161 yards and a pair of scores, and Devin Hester set an NFL record with his 20th return for a TD. Hesters runback of a punt covered 62 yards. The spotlight game in Week 3, naturally, is the Super Bowl rematch between Denver and Seattle at CenturyLink Field. Bring your ear plugs. Also Sunday, its San Francisco at Arizona, San Diego at Buffalo, Green Bay at Detroit, Pittsburgh at Carolina, Baltimore at Cleveland, Washington at Philadelphia, Tennessee at Cincinnati, Oakland at New England, Houston at the New York Giants, Dallas at St. Louis and Kansas City at Miami. On Monday night, Chicago is at the New York Jets.Minnesota (1-1) at New Orleans (0-2)With Adrian Peterson inactive and the Vikings ranking last in passing offense, the Saints can have some confidence they will get off the schneid. But they need to show their defense can make plays down the stretch; it also ranks last against the pass.Indianapolis (0-2) at Jacksonville (0-2)Give Indy credit for being competitive. Now, it must close the deal. To do so, it might turn to Ahmad Bradshaw, who has had some strong moments at running back. And like the Saints, the Colts struggled stopping the pass. Jacksonville, of course, has the NFLs lowest-ranked attack, playing directly into Indianapolis hands.Denver (2-0) at Seattle (1-1)The first redux of the previous Super Bowl since the 1997 regular season and only the sixth ever. Peyton Manning once again is on a hot streak his four consecutive games with at least three TD passes and no interceptions ties Tom Bradys mark and he gets back Wes Welker from a drug suspension. Denver has had close contests in its first two wins, and gets a Seahawks bunch that was beaten by a super-aggressive San Diego last week. But that was on the road, and no team has a bigger home-field edge than the champs.San Francisco (1-1) at Arizona (2-0)A victory by the Cardinals would stamp them as a true contender in the NFLs toughest division. The Niners have won the past four meetings and nine of 10, but come off blowing a big lead against Chicago and might be without tight end Vernon Davis. Arizona beat the Giants with backup QB Drew Stanton. The 49ers arent the Giants, and Carson Palmers status is iffy.San Diego (1-1) at Buffalo (2-0)Teams traveling from the West Coast to the east tend to struggle, especially for 1 p.m. kickoffs. The one semi-exception is San Diego, which is 17-18 in such scenarios in the past 10 years. The Chargers come off a huge emotional victory against Seattle and tight end Antonio Gates looks unstoppable. This isnt the usual visit to Buffalo and come away successful deal, though. The Bills have been more impressive than anyone expected, and with their sale soon to be approved, optimism reigns in Western New York.Green Bay (1-1) at Detroit (1-1)Detroit went from sensational to awful in a span of a week. Green Bay went the other way but only after falling into a big hole against the Jets in Game 2. The Pack has won five of the past six meetings and has lost in Detroit only twice in the past decade. This is the first of three straight division games for Green Bay, a chance to make some real early progress in the NFC North.Chicago (1-1) at N.Y. Jets (1-1), Monday nightWhen the Jets let off the gas after a 21-3 lead at Lambeau Field, they probably doomed themselves. Now they get a Bears team coming off an impressive upset win at San Francisco with a rally similar to the Packers charge. Chicago is banged up, but if it can get the right matchups for Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery against New Yorks sieve of a secondary, watch out. New York owns an odd double, leading the league in both rushing offense and rushing defense.Pittsburgh (1-1) at Carolina (2-0)The Steel Curtain has moved to Charlotte. Carolina has yielded 21 points so far, and the way the Panthers shut down the Lions was impressive. Linebacker Luke Kuechly might be the best player in the NFL right now on either side of the ball. Pittsburgh, meanwhile, has been leaky on D and not nearly as efficient in its speedier offense as it hoped for. Opponents are running at will against the Steelers, which has to make Mean Joe Greene and Jack Lambert shudder.Baltimore (1-1) at Cleveland (1-1)The gutsy performance by the Browns, and particularly homegrown QB Brian Hoyer, in last weeks last-second victory over New Orleans drew plenty of attention. A victory in this one would be their second straight over the Ravens following an 11-game slide. Baltimore knows the specter of the Ray Rice domestic violence case wont fade for a while. But the Ravens did come through last Thursday in the midst of the turmoil, beating archrival Pittsburgh.Washington (1-1) at Philadelphia (2-0)Everyone associated with the Redskins expects WR DeSean Jackson to play, though he left early last week against the Jaguars with a shoulder issue. Jackson certainly doesnt want to miss a matchup with the team that released him last March. Coach Jay Gruden is hopeful. Hes a reckless player, a fast player, and if hes not 100 percent hes not worth being out there, Gruden said. But hes a tough kid. I think hell get it right. Robert Griffin III wont be around after dislocating his left ankle. Kirk Cousins, strong in relief last week, will start. Philly has gotten it right in the second half of both its victories, the first team to rally from 14 points behind in each of its first two games to win. Coach Chip Kellys emphasis on speed and conditioning has shown.Tennessee (1-1) at Cincinnati (2-0)Despite a rash of injuries in Week 2, the Bengals easily handled Atlanta. A key here could be if star receiver A.J. Green is recovered from a toe problem. Andy Dalton has not been sacked and not thrown a pick in backto-back games for the first time. The Titans got manhandled by Dallas, and Cincinnati is even more physical. Tennessee must find a way to slow a versatile Bengals running game.Oakland (0-2) at New England (1-1)Tally Ho! Well, not quite yet. First the Raiders are heavy underdogs in New England, where they havent won in 20 years. Remember the Tuck Rule playoff game in the 2001 season? Then Oakland heads to London to, uh, host Miami. The Patriots want to spread the ball more in the passing game. Considering Tom Brady has Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman as his favorite targets, the alternative isnt bad.Houston (2-0) at N.Y. Giants (0-2)The Giants have looked even worse at times in this slow start than they did in going 0-6 a year ago. With an inconsistent offensive line in front of an up-and-down Eli Manning, New York could use more from its running game, defense and special teams. Hasnt happened so far. Lots of good things are happening thus far for Houston, but be wary: The Texans were 2-0 in 2013 and then lost 14 straight. They could have a big edge here because of their strong pass rush.Dallas (1-1) at St. Louis (1-1)If the Cowboys can run the ball with DeMarco Murray, theyll keep their mediocre defense off the field and have a chance. It worked great last week at Tennessee. Injury-ravaged St. Louis is down to thirdstring QB Austin Davis. But he was solid in beating Tampa Bay.Kansas City (0-2) at Miami (1-1)The Chiefs also are dealing with more than their share of injuries, and unlike 2013, they arent forcing turnovers as in zero so far. Losing Knowshon Moreno could stagnate Miamis run game, which means more burden on quarterback Ryan Tannehill and an unproductive passing attack. Time to play for real All isnt lost for the Saints, Colts at 0-2; the division favorites could use a W, though Associated PressNew Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is sacked by Cleveland Browns linebacker Karlos Dansby on Sept. 14 in the fourth quarter in Cleveland. Division favorites, the Saints ended up losing on a late field goal to the Browns and now sit at 0-2 this season.

Section CSUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW In my view, two of the greatest community achievements in Citrus County over the past 25 years involved saving important property from condominium development. The Homosassa Springs state park and Three Sisters Springs in Crystal River were both once slated for highdensity condo development. In both cases it took a public outcry and a lot of public dollars to stop the destruction of these incredible community assets. In Homosassa, citizens pushed county government to step in and take a leadership role in saving the property. A public referendum was held and citizens said hell yes spend our tax dollars and save that property. Today, Homosassa Springs state park is one of the most popular in all of Florida. The county got paid back all local funds spent to step in and protect the park. Hundreds of thousands of visitors come each year to see the greatest collection of native Florida animals at home in our gorgeous Homosassa Springs. The economic impact of the tourists is counted in the tens of millions of dollars each year. It was just five years ago that the same thing happened with Three Sisters Springs in Crystal River. With Crystal River city government in the lead, every government entity imaginable joined with environmental groups, civic clubs, churches and regular people to put enough money together to save the property from development. Mark my word: Even though the community is struggling through some growing pains in the effort to organize public use of Three Sisters, this site will one day be as important as the Homosassa Springs state park. Those are two excellent reasons why the voters of Citrus County should join with citizens around the state to approve Constitutional Amendment 1 on this Make preserving our natural assets a priority See WINDOW/ Page C3 SAVE OUR WATERS WEEK XIX The citizen who thinks he sees that the commonwealths political clothes are worn out, and yet holds his peace and does not agitate for a new suit, is disloyal; he is a traitor. Mark Twain, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthurs CourtGov. Scott, a few questions, if you dont mind. We all know you were once involved in the health care industry. You must have at least a cursory knowledge of health care and attendant statistics, no? Are you aware of the support displayed by Floridians for our waters in repeated media polls? As our governor, you are surely aware that your priority list of duties includes oversight of the health, safety and welfare of residents and visitors here in the Sunshine State, no? Microcystis aeruginosa ring a bell? Cylindrospermopsis? In case not, they are bluegreen algae abundant in eutrophic waters. They are a genus of the cyanobacteria, which produces a peptide toxin, microcystin, that causes acute liver necrosis. They may or may not, at any given location or time, present danger to humans; this is dependent upon a number of variables. Kings Bay may be the largest estuarine body of water in the country, and possibly the world, that derives its fresh water sources entirely from springs. There are 41 documented springs in Kings Bay/Crystal River, and its possible there are more that have yet to be discovered. The springs host a wide variety of fish and wildlife including, of course, our world-famous manatees. They also provide a wide variety of recreational opportunities for residents and visitors alike. Our springs are portals to the aquifer, which is the major source of our drinking water. They form when the groundwater of the aquifer is under pressure and is forced up through an opening called a spring vent into the bay or river. But our springsheds are under attack from a number of enemies: exotic plants such as hydrilla and Lyngbya; excessive fertilizing; failing septic tanks; highway runoff; groundwater withdrawal; increases in salinity; reductions in discharge; and more. Crystal River is at the forefront in the effort to protect our irreplaceable water resources. Recall that Crystal River was the leader in the joint effort of many KARI TEDRICK/Special to the ChronicleKari Tedrick of Gospel Island captured the simplistic beauty of a fisherman casting his net silhouetted against the glistening waters of Fort Island Trail Beach, earning second-place honors in the annual Save Our Waters Week photo contest. Jim GoodworthGUEST COLUMN Most people dont give much thought to their fire department until theyre in an emergency and need help. When that time comes, the citizen dials 911 and they have certain expectations of the fire department. Citizens expect the fire department to be on scene quickly and firefighters to be well trained and equipped to handle every emergency. As your fire chief, I want to make sure that we not only meet but exceed these expectations. Now that the proper funding mechanisms are in place, we have the benefit of having a costeffective and financially stable means of funding the department not only for today, but into the future. One of my first tasks after being given the honor of leading the fire service was to develop a comprehensive long-range strategic plan addressing the priority needs of the department. The first priority was to redistribute our current staff in order to provide protection to areas of our county that had little to no fire protection, such as Floral City, Sugarmill Woods and DeRosa. These stations had a limited number of available volunteers. Other priorities included hiring additional staff, apparatus replacement, equipment replacement and upgrades to our stations. In regard to staffing, the Municipal Services Benefit Unit, or MSBU, has allowed us to hire career firefighters to make up for the decline in volunteer ranks. Over the past decade there has been a significant reduction in volunteer firefighter recruitment, not only in Citrus County but nationwide. One of the contributing factors to this reduction is the time and training it takes to become a certified volunteer. This training has increased dramatically. Currently volunteers are required to have more than 250 hours of training before they are certified. Federal How your fire tax dollars are being spent See GOODWORTH/ Page C6 By doing Just One Thing, you can help Governor, we are curious Dan HilliardGUEST COLUMN See HILLIARD/ Page C5 Although an accurate world inventory is not available, it seems that Floridas major springs exceed in number and in quantity of water discharged those of other states or nations.

Page C2SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2014 NATO must respond rapidly to PutinGeorge Will has a point when he describes ISIL as a nasty problem and Putins fascist revival as a crisis. Defeating ISIL will cost us in the short term and without assistance from neighboring states may make it near impossible. But the Ukraine situation has the potential to destabilize Europe well into the future. Putin has his sights on territorial and economic expansion even if he cannot afford to recreate the USSR. The U.S. is doing all it can even as our European allies look for reasons to equivocate on meaningful sanctionsto halt Putins aggression. John Mearsheimer, who teaches at the University of Chicago, states in a recent essay that the Ukrainian situation is the fault of the West. He is partially right. NATOs rapid eastward expansion fed Russian paranoia and trampled on an understandingbetween former USSR President Mikhail Gorbachev and Western leaders when the USSR crumbled. If NATO is to remain relevant, it needs to follow through quickly on creating a rapid deployment force and station troops (including U.S.) in Poland and the Baltic states. This breaks other prior agreements but is justified given Putins actions. We also need to infuse capital into Ukraines broken economy, and soon. The Eropean Union needs energy to fuel its factories, but energy diversification that does not depend mostly on Russia. Among other actions, EU countries must increase their defense budgets and provide better cohesion against this threat. Tall tasks all, but necessary. They dally at their own peril.Wayne Logsdon HernandoWorld must band together to fight ISISIn the 1940s the world came together to fight pure evil. The evil was named the Nazi Party. Today the world is facing a new brand of pure evil. This evil is named ISIS. If ever there was a time to put national differences aside once again and join forces to eradicate this new evil from the planet, it is now. ISIS must be tracked down wherever it rears its ugly head, and that head must be severed from the body just as it does to people who dont follow its creed of barbaric hatred. Secret operations to hunt down and eliminate ISIS agents until this scourge is completely eliminated must be the top priority of all nations. ISIS has made it clear that it will not negotiate: You either convert to its beliefs, or you are murdered. The cry after World War II was never again, and it is my hope that the world will stand together and prove that this is not just a slogan, but a battle cry against the same evil we defeated in 1945.Evlyn M. Skurow Crystal River The general election this November will have three amendments for voters to consider. Voting should be easy and voters should be informed. Following is a brief description of the amendments and how a your vote will affect them. Amendments to the Florida Constitution are simply changes to rules and rights provided by the constitution. An amendment must receive 60 percent of the votes to become law. Amendment 1, the Water and Land Conservation Initiative, dedicates funds to acquire and restore Florida conservation and recreation lands. It requires 33 percent of the net revenue collected from the documentary stamp tax (mostly from real estate transactions) over the next 20 years to go toward the Land Acquisition Trust Fund. It ensures that funding will not be diverted to other areas of the budget. A yes vote would provide for long-term funding for environmental conservation without a new tax; remove the reliance on annual reviews of legislative funding for water and land conservation projects; and promote the enhancement of publicly-held recreational lands and possibly contributing to economic growth through increased ecotourism. A no vote would continue to keep the funding for environmental conservation dependent on the Legislatures ability to make budgetary decisions affecting water and land on a yearto-year basis; and not place language in the Florida Constitution relating to environmental conservation, where it would be difficult to modify or remove. The League of Women Voters of Florida has studied the impact of this legislation and endorses a yes vote on Amendment 1. Amendment 2, the Right to Medical Marijuana Initiative, allows individuals with debilitating diseases, as determined by a licensed Florida physician, to purchase and use medical marijuana. It enables physicians to authorize medical marijuana to their patients; allows caregivers to assist patients medical use of the drug; requires the Department of Health to register and regulate centers that produce and distribute medical marijuana; requires issuance of identification cards to patients and caregivers; and only applies to Florida residents. A yes vote would provide for the legal use of medical marijuana; continue to prohibit recreational use; and require the Department of Health to monitor the industry, as well as issue ID cards to patients and caregivers. A no vote would not affect the current prohibition on marijuana use in the state of Florida; continue to maintain the enforcement of marijuana laws currently on the books; and not place language in the Florida Constitution relating to medical marijuana, where it would be difficult to modify or remove. The League has not taken a position on Amendment 2. Amendment 3, Prospective Appointment of Certain Judicial Vacancies, has the unique distinction of being placed on the ballot by the Florida Legislature. While Amendment 1 and 2 were placed on the ballot in response to citizen initiative, collecting signatures from 8 percent of the number of voters who cast ballots in the most recent presidential election (683,149 signatures were required), Amendment 3 was proposed by joint resolution and passed by three-fifths of each chamber of the Legislature. Amendment 3 would require a governor to prospectively fill vacancies on the Florida Supreme Court or a district court of appeal when a judge retires, fails to qualify for retention election or fails to secure a majority of votes during his or her retention election. A yes vote would invalidate the Florida Supreme Courts interpretation of Floridas Constitution as to who has authority to fill judicial vacancies; enable an outgoing governor to make appointments to the Florida Supreme Court or a district court of appeal; and possibly shorten the time that a judicial appointment is vacant. A no vote would maintain the current system that requires the newly sworn incoming governor to fill judicial vacancies; continue to allow judicial vacancies to exist for up to 120 days, possibly creating workload issues within the court; and not place language in the Florida Constitution relating to judicial appointments, where it would be difficult to modify or remove. The League of Women Voters of Florida opposes this amendment and endorses a no vote. With the general election less than 60 days away, the League encourages you to become informed so that you can make your vote count. Our mission is to provide you with the information you can use for decision making. Please contact us for more information at lwvcc2013@gmail.com or visit us at lwvcitrus.org The League has made it easy to obtain election information in one place: desktop, mobile and app for Android platforms: bereadytovote.org and vamosavotar.org.

There is no arguing with the pretenders to a divine knowledge and to a divine mission. They are possessed with the sin of pride, they have yielded to the perennial temptation.Walter Lippmann, The Public Philosophy, 1955 A primer on the amendments CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M.

The $6 million dollars sent the countys way will be matched by money set aside in the countys Comprehensive Improvement Plan. The money will be used to help upgrade the wastewater plant in Sugarmill Woods and work with Southern Woods and Sugarmill Woods golf and country clubs to pipe wastewater to those facilities for irrigation. Its been a long time coming, but it appears the Florida Legislature, with $37 million last year and another $55 million this year, is finally putting some dollars toward springs restoration and it cant come at a better time. Floridas springs are under attack and Citrus County, with a handful of first-magnitude springs and numerous other large springs, is fighting an uphill battle to protect those water bodies. While Citrus County is fortunate to receive a sizeable chunk of funding, luck really has nothing to do with it. The county has an engaged citizenry willing to fight and support numerous efforts to clean up its waterways. A number of well-publicized projects, from Art Jones One Rake At a Time grassroots effort to Southwest Florida Water Management Districts failed dredging of Chassahowitzka to Crystal Rivers coastal sewer project, should help move Citrus County to the top of any type of state list of projects that will be funded in the future. Another benefit is having state Sen. Charlie Dean, who this past legislative session, championed a sweeping 38page senate bill that would have created the Springs and Aquifer Act and required DEP to delineate the springs protection and management zonefor each outstanding spring. While his bill failed to pass this year, there is strong support and all indications are Dean and his cohorts will get the bill through in the coming year. Additionally, environmentalists have placed Amendment 1 on the November ballot, which dedicates a funding source to protect critical water supply areas and restore degraded natural systems. The amendment seeks to set aside 33 percent of the states documentary stamp tax revenues for 20 years. The revenues also will be used to acquire conservation and recreation lands and manage existing lands. The amendment, which requires approval from 60 percent of voters to pass, could generate $10 billion over the course its life. With so much money beginning to flow toward springs protection, Citrus County leaders should begin now lining up their projects to be funded, because the iron is hot. For now, the $6 million allotted by the state provides a huge lift and is a tremendous help. THE ISSUE:County in line for $6 million for springs.OUR OPINION:Great news for the county.

COMMENTARYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, SEPTEMBER21, 2014 C3 After nine times, Im finally putting moving to bed As a married couple, Cheryl and I have had eight different addresses. That means, counting moving into our first home, we have moved eight times during the past 48 years. Fifteen years ago, we moved into our present abode. Ours is a very lovely home built especially for us within the city of Inverness. Cheryl and I both really enjoy it, including the location, which makes us close to those things we want to be close to: our church, our favorite grocery store, numerous restaurants, the grand old town area, all of our doctors and the hospital. When we moved in, I averred that I would never move again. I was wrong. We recently moved. No, we have not changed addresses. We are still in our home and we are still right where we want to be, but we still moved. When you begin to get older, things change. Your body simply does not continue to be as kind to you as it was in your younger years. It begins to hurt more than it used to and it has a mind of its own concerning how much you squirm while sleeping. Flopping around isnt such a big deal if you are sleeping alone, but together my sweetheart and I found ourselves feeling imprisoned once we crawled between the sheets on our king-sized bed. It was a combination of each being awakened and also each of us worrying about awakening the other. But neither of us liked the idea of having separate bedrooms. Voila! Twin beds! Based on the mushiness of some of my writings, Ive been accused more than once of living in an Ozzie and Harriet world. It dawned on Cheryl and me that to imitate the married folks in 1950s TV might be the way to go. Simple answer, but not so simple putting it into effect. Bedroom No. 1, the master suite, had a very nice kingsized fourposter bed. Bedroom No. 2, the official guest room, had a very nice queen-sized fourposter bed. Bedroom No. 3, the grandkids sleepover room, had a serviceable double bed. Operation Musical Bedrooms: Bed in Bedroom No. 3 was moved out into the garage for giveaway; bed in Bedroom No. 2 was moved into Bedroom No. 3; bed in Bedroom No. 1 had to be moved into Bedroom No. 2; and, finally, newly purchased twin beds were delivered and set up in Bedroom No. 1. No big deal, you say? Pictures, plants, bedclothes all had to be reconfigured to give each bedroom its best possible appearance. We used what we had as far as possible, but certain things, such as sheets for the new twin beds, had to be purchased. And when you move things around, you will find places that must be respackled and touched up with paint. Yes, we moved. It took days of hard labor. And, I am never, ever doing it again!Fred Brannen, an Inverness resident, has been a Chronicle columnist since 1988 and is the author of the recently published novel, At the Bottom of Biscayne Bay. He may be contacted at fbrannenjr @gmail.com or via brannenbooksllc.com. Fred BrannenA SLICE OF LIFE Novembers ballot. The amendment requires that 33 percent of the net revenues raised from existing documentary stamp taxes be used to purchase, conserve and maintain public lands. The amendment will set aside money to purchase places like Homosassa Springs and Three Sisters Springs for future generations. This is not a new tax. Doc stamp taxes already exist on real estate transactions. The amendment simply requires that one third of the existing taxes be used for this important public purpose. Former Gov. Bob Graham visited Homosassa Springs two weeks ago to urge Citrus residents to join with him and support the amendment. When Gov. Graham was in office, we had a public funding program for conserving lands. But every time the Florida Legislature runs into a financial problem, the first thing they do is raid the trust funds established to protect land and the environment. By putting this law into the Florida Constitution, voters will be telling the Legislature that this is an important priority that they shouldnt try to mess with. Sen. Charlie Dean, R-Inverness, joined with Gov. Graham at Homosassa Springs to voice his bipartisan support of the amendment. We really are only given one chance to preserve the most beautiful parts of our state for our children and future generations. By supporting Amendment 1, you can help make sure that conserving and maintaining Floridas greatest assets is always a priority.Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle. Email him at gmulligan @chronicleonline.com. groups and individuals to purchase Three Sisters Springs, saving it from such potentially devastating proposals as a water bottling plant, and later, proposed timeshare condos. As part of the project, a wetland treatment system is being constructed on the property that will reduce much of the nutrient loading and contaminants from highway stormwater runoff. Much of the citys efforts are educational. The city has a Waterfronts Advisory Board that has been proactive in developing educational programs as well as securing grants. One program that has been well received in the community is called Just One Thing. As the name implies, it asks people to do something, if only one thing, in their home or yard to reduce the amount of water consumed or lessen the flow of nitrates or other pollutants into our waters. Here are some of the things board members have done that they recommend to others: Instead of using the garbage disposal, save vegetative scraps for a compost pile (or barrel) that can later be used to fertilize flowers. Fertilize only plants in pots so no chemicals get into the soil or aquifer. Wash only full loads in the washing machine and dishwasher. Install low-flow toilets. Empty melted ice from coolers on plants. Install rain barrels and use the captured rain water to irrigate plants. Waterfronts Advisory Board Chair Phyllis Rosetti offers these additional suggestions. If you must use fertilizer, use only the slow-release kind. Do Floridafriendly landscaping. Dont let your water hose leak. And dont wash dishes by hand. The city of Crystal River has obtained several significant grants for waterways clean-up projects. The city and Kings Bay Rotary received a $100,000 Beaches and Mines grant sponsored by state Sen. Charles Dean, and a $38,000 grant from the NOAA Coastal Partnership is being implemented by Kings Bay Rotary. The city recently broke ground on a project to pump treated wastewater (reclaimed) to Duke Energy for its air pollution control devices. This will significantly reduce Duke Energys withdrawal of ground water and reduce nutrient loading in Kings Bay by 17 to 20 percent. More gallons of treated wastewater will be sent to Duke than the gallons of potable water removed from the aquifer every day for all city residents. In July, the citys sewer grant project was completed, replacing 500 to 600 septic tanks with sewer hookup. The completion of this project removes the threat of leeching septic systems, which posed a significant threat to our Kings Bay springshed. By now most people in Citrus County are familiar with the One Rake at a Time project started by city resident Art Jones. This rapidly growing grassroots movement has drawn volunteers from all walks of life who have removed literally tons of the blue-green algae known as Lyngbya uncovering some spring vents in the process. As the officials and residents of Crystal River have shown, each of us can make a difference if we make up our minds to do so. It doesnt have to be a lot if each of us do Just One Thing.Jim Farley is the mayor of Crystal River and the citys liaison to the Waterfronts Advisory Board.

Honest, accountable and transparent government. 3. Maintain Citrus Countys natural resources. 4. Government that works for the peoples best interest. 5. Affordable living by keeping government responsible and limiting its growth when necessary. 6. Having good future planning (roads, jobs, etc.) at a pace the taxpayer can afford based on population growth. We will sell no wine before its time. This mission statement was first done when I took office at eight months and now two years. Our mission statement has run into much resistance from Commissioners Joe Meek, Dennis Damato, JJ Kenney, and Rebecca Bays that protects certain sacred cows or should I say special interests. We can make this mission a reality in the upcoming election. These principals will benefit all taxpayers and be businessand job-friendly. It takes true public servants with no special agendas to make this happen. Lets be clear: We are fighting for the right future of Citrus County. I am honored to be one of your county commissioners. As my father used to say, You cant fix the problem with the same people who created it. Its not in their best interest.

Adams: Im fighting for the future of the county Scott AdamsGUEST COLUMN Letters toTHE EDITOR Anything but ground forcesDear members of Congress: I heard the Obama speech and many, many of the arguments concerning theterrorist group ISIS.In my opinion, the presidents strategy is about the right application, given the madness that isthe Middle East. I am a Vietnam veteran (1964), and I closely followed both Bush 1s and Bush 2s Iraq wars. Old Bush had it right: Defeat the Iraqis but do not occupy. Bush 2? We all knew did we not? that when occupying American troops eventually left Iraq, Iraq would perform about like its performing today. And we now know dont we? thatthe result would be the same if we occupied Iraq for hundreds of years. It just might be that various anti-American Middle East tribes and sects tacitly hope well invade and occupy, because it will eventually destroy our economy, what with high costs of wars and occupations. Moreover, when wars are done, costs continue.After every war, American taxpayers are left with the cost of maintaining veterans for scores of years, to the point that that financial burden could surpass the cost of the wars themselves. Bomb the terrorists; snipe them using drones; Special Ops them; destroy their infrastructure; advise and financially support inhabitants who will fight the worst of the terrorists; confiscate terrorist assets; but please, let us not again introduce combat and occupying troops into the mad Middle East.James McIntosh LecantoYoure a lunch ingredientWith the new school year, parents attention is turning to school lunches. Traditionally, USDA had used the National School Lunch Program as a dumping ground for surplus meat and dairy commodities. Children consumed animal fat and sugary drinks, to the point where one-third have become overweight or obese. Their early dietary flaws became lifelong addictions, raising their risk of diabetes, heart disease and stroke. In recent years, several state legislatures asked their schools to offer daily vegetarian options, and 64 percent of U.S. school districts now do. Moreover, hundreds of schools and school districts, including Baltimore, Buffalo, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami-Dade, Oakland, Philadelphia, and San Diego have implemented Meatless Mondays. A New York City school went all vegetarian last year. Current USDA school lunch guidelines, mandated by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, require doubling the servings of fruits and vegetables, more whole grains, less sodium and fat, and meat-free breakfast. The challenge is to get students to eat the healthier foods. Parents should work with school cafeteria managers to encourage consumption of healthy foods. Initiatives could include student recipe or poster contests, student garden and/or Meatless Mondays.

This is definitely wrong.Mow the grassIts a shame driving through Citrus Hills and seeing grass along the sides of the roadways of empty lots growing up to 4 feet. Evidently the property owners dont care how this degrades their own property, but no one seems to complain.Excellent letter, HarryI thought Harry Coopers letter to the editor in (the Sept. 7) newspaper was excellent. Gerry Mulligan does pick on Scott Adams and I think Scott is trying to do a good job. Give him a chance, Gerry.Already taxed for fireBoy, when the MSBU talks come out and we have a county commission that finally will repeal that disgraceful tax on everybody, our good sheriff comes out and speaks all good about it. If the Chronicle reports honestly, when the sheriff took over the fire department, it was not supposed to cost any more. It was supposed to be reorganized for efficiency. Well, within four weeks the county commissioners granted the sheriff $1 million in additional funds and he reorganized the firehouses. We pay taxes for fire on all of our property. We already pay taxes. Now we have an MSBU, which is just a tax on top of a tax.Has the beagle been found?Could somebody please tell me if that beagle in Citrus Springs in the Pine Ridge and Beverly Hills area has been found? Im seeing signs up all over that say Found dog. Is it the same dog? Has the beagle been found? Too many crybabiesIm calling in reference to the article (Sound Off Sept. 13), Comments show lack of understanding. How incredibly well put. It is a shame there are so many insensitive, cruel people in this world today. I am not a pet owner because I am too old to commit to a long-term responsibility. I have a very small pension $744 a month. And I pay little to no taxes none on my pension just like many others that are making such a fuss over such a needed service in a civilized community. I have never seen so many crybabies as I have seen since moving to this area.Do a little researchTo the person complaining because they had no Publix or Winn-Dixie on (State Road) 200. My question is: Why didnt you look into that before you moved there? Whether youre renting a place or buying a place, you always check out that area for its distance to stores, hospitals, doctors offices, schools, etc. This is called planning. If you cant take the time to check these things out, then dont complain after you move there about whats missing in that neighborhood. You think you can move there and then have the city or town cater to your every little whim, only it doesnt work that way. SOUND OFFCALL563-0579

C4SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER21, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLECOMMENTARY On Sept. 22, the final approval of the Riverwalk will be finalized by the city council of Crystal River. The project, which is located on the pristine waters of Crystal River, has been in planning for the past 20 years. The Community Redevelopment Agency will be spending tax dollars to plan and construct this project in the waterfront district, and for the first time we will see a partnership between the private and public sectors. Spending taxpayer money always gets our citizens excited, some in a good and some in a bad way. But before we become negatively charged around this project, lets first make sure we have a clear understanding of what the CRA is and from where its funds originate. The Riverwalk project is slated to be built in what is known as the Community Redevelopment Area, otherwise known as the CRA district. Under Florida law (Chapter 163, Part III), local governments are able to designate geographic areas as Community Redevelopment Areas when certain conditions exist. Examples of CRA-funded projects are streetscapes and roadway improvements, building renovations, new building construction, flood control initiatives, water and sewer improvements, parking lots/garages, neighborhood parks, sidewalks and streetscaping. Where does funding for the CRA come from? Tax Increment Financing, also known as TIF, is a tool available to cities for redevelopment activities. It is used to leverage public funds to promote privatesector activity in a targeted area. All funds used in financing CRA activities are locally generated. The dollar value of all real property in the CRA is determined at a fixed date, also known as the frozen value. Taxing authorities, which contribute to the tax increment, continue to receive property tax revenues based on the frozen value. These frozen-value revenues are available for general government purposes. However, any tax revenues from increases in real property value, referred to as an increment, are deposited into the CRA trust fund and dedicated to the redevelopment area. Do we have funds and will the Riverwalk create wealth for the community? Yes, funding currently exists, and the CRA will collect $500,000 or more per year for the next 25 years. The development of the Riverwalk will create economic growth for the community. Remember when President Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Father of the Interstate System, signed the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1956 on June 29, 1956. The record $33 billion road-building program faced controversy, but the end resulted in the birth of the richest nation in the world. Also note the quote from Thomas H. Macdonald, chief of the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads, who stated We were not a wealthy nation when we began improving our highways ... but the roads themselves helped us create a new wealth, in business and industry and land values. So it was not our wealth that made our highways possible. Rather, it was our highways that made our wealth possible. The present activity of the CRA is to develop the Riverwalk, designated parking areas, infrastructure and roadways that will help connect the waterfront business district, downtown Crystal River and the Three Sisters Springs Park. This will not only help revitalize our city, but will also retain existing businesses, promote expansions, attract new business development and create job growth, leading to a revitalized economy for the city of Crystal River. So lets work together and help our community grow. Dr. Paresh G. Desai is a former CRA board member and resident of Crystal River. How the Riverwalk project will better our community Dr. Paresh DesaiOTHER VOICES A government against its peopleWhen I first came to a BOCC meeting some years ago, it was to see what was happening here on a Tuesday afternoon while taxpayers were at work. I spoke about being ignored by people who were friendly to me every four years when they would shake my hand and kiss my baby. What did shock me at that time was the total untethered attitude toward spending. It was as if there were no shortage of dollars and the tax money were theirs to buy whatever they felt they could to make government bigger in the name of the citizens best interest. This practice has accelerated by extorting from the government-controlled property owner through fees, fines and liens. The administrator controlled the strings of his marionette board members by convincing them to spend more on his winwin scenarios. Now, the people are about to see their taxes squandered on a boat ramp. Certainly not for the likes of me. When I first retired to this place I found a wave runner at a yard sale. Last year, I paid to register it as dictated by government allowing me to use it under their control, but could not afford the gas to even take it out of the driveway. This year, I dont have the money to register the vessel and I will try to get something for it through Craigslist to pay the delinquent property taxes. I must cut back and go with out so this government does not have to, whether I like it or not. I and the termites share a trailer with a patched roof and only a fan to cool in the summer and a space heater in the winter. We go with rotting teeth, but I will do my part so the poor cats and dogs of this county should be comfortable in their new airconditioned facility. No, Im not complaining. Ill do without so government doesnt have to. We have a rogue commissioner; a unique individual who thinks outside the board of county commissioners box. He has the outward appearance of someone who relates well and represents the working person who cannot be there on Tuesdays. If he can hold on and not become a typical bureaucrat the elected morph into, the people might see the hand of this bloated, overreaching government slapped. I would note though, that I have not received any response to my last two emails to Mr. Adams. We can only hope that this is not a sign he has become one of the condescending elite of the government. I read in the paper a short time back there was negative growth in this county while neighboring counties were gaining people; and it seemed the elite were pondering as to why this might be. Are these people that naive? Are they that stupid? Are they in denial? Or will they just tax the poor property owners who are left so they can continue the frivolous spending this county is accustomed to. This government just keeps growing and growing, more laws and rules, more spending, more enforcement and government employees, more departments, taxes, citizen control, and for what? More government, less rights and less freedoms. This is government is not for the people. It is a government against the people, but for their own good.C.W. Krantz Floral CityWhy Benghazi mattersAddressing one of the myriad of lies repeated ad infinitum by the administration, by Obama and ersatz Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, I recall recently watching a 1-hour program by Bret Baier of Fox News. First I must regress many decades: As a combat veteran of Korea, I have had gettogethers with veteran comrades of both Korea and World War II, also telephone and email contacts. In all cases, battle-hardened veterans, when recalling past experience among others of their kind, often pause, take deep breaths, look down, cover their eyes and sometimes even weep openly. The Fox program hours at Benghazi had three young men, former members of the Annex Security Team, survivors of the pitched battle there. I noted as they talked they exhibited the same symptoms as the aforementioned veterans certain proof that they had lived what they were describing. They sat facing Baier at a table and between was a large, detailed aerial photo of the entire arena of action. They described in great depth the various buildings, their positions and movement during the battle, times when they received wounds and the tending of each others wounds as the fighting continued! They describe using their weapons firing singly, rather than full automatic for accuracy and to conserve ammunition, further relating Jihad terrorists that they killed. Even now as I relate this I tear up, and aver that any combat veteran that I know would have been proud to have fought beside these younger fighters. Their story answers the cold, mindless question Clinton posed, What does it matter? It as well piles more evidence of the monstrous lie perpetrated by the entire Obama administration, There was no stand-down order. Each affirmed they received that order not once, not twice, but three times! Each ignored the order and went into action defending the people and territory, and absorbed wounds doing it. The U.S. soldier at his heroic best.Fred Miller HernandoJoin Girl Scouts to inspire future leaders Members and adult volunteers alike benefit from their Girl Scout experiences. How does a girl accomplish her goal of learning about robotics? Or defy gender stereotypes and become a firefighter, leading a team of other heroes? Or set in motion her dream of becoming a leader when opportunity seems like only a buzzword to her? How? Its simple: Girl Scouts. How can you gain valuable job experience, hone leadership skills, participate in your community, and introduce girls to new experiences that show them theyre capable of more than they ever imagined? How? Again: Girl Scouts. Whether you sign your daughter up for a troop or sign yourself up as a volunteer, Girl Scouts offers a wide range of opportunities to brighten a girls future. Whether camping, traveling, running a business through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, or providing service to make our world a better place, Girl Scouts benefits are impactful. In fact, recent Girl Scout research shows that 94 percent of Girl Scout volunteers and 97 percent of girl members believe Girl Scouts provides them with new, fun, and exciting experiences. At Girl Scouts of West Central Florida, we serve nearly 21,000 girls in Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Marion, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sumter counties. We want to reach more girls than ever before but to do that, we need more volunteers. Lets get more girls in west central Florida exploring, imagining, and shining.

There are many organizations who offer assistance to pay bills. Here are two offering aid for medical expenses: Patient Access Network, http://www.panfoundation.org Patient Advocate Foundation, http://www.patient advocate.orgCaryn Harmon Beverly HillsHealthy choices yours to makeI work with patients that have heart disease and many times we request and urge them to lose weight and exercise for a longer and healthier life. Some come back for a follow up with a few pounds lost but most do not, complaining of how hard it is to stop eating bread or pasta and refuse to exercise due to fatigue or age. I look my patients in their eyes and I tell them the story of my 8-year-old son who wanted to play football with kids his age but was overweight. He was given the choice to move up and play with the big boys, but we knew that meant he would have to go up against kids that have much more experience and knowledge of the game. They also could be up to 11 years old and weigh up to 110 pounds. That just wasnt an option for an 8-year-old with only one year of football under his belt. He needed to lose several pounds to play with children at his level and age. As a mother, I only saw a sweet boy that maybe was a little bigger than most boys his age. To think of putting him on a diet was an outrageous thought and only for the extreme. I didnt know how we would manage to get him to a healthy weight without damaging his spirit and mind. I spoke to him and let him know what the options were and my son made that choice on his own. He wanted to play at his age level so he put down the bread, the pasta, the ice cream, cookies. You name it, he said no. He ate plenty of veggies, fruit, fish and chicken with salad and always drank water before his meals. He showed up for practice every day with bells on in hopes to play with that team. He even exercised with his Granny in the mornings before school. And not one single complaint. He didnt whine or give excuses. My wonderful son managed to lose the weight and weighed in under the 90-pound limit for his first game. He went from being a thick, 98-pound, 8-yearold boy to a healthy 87-pound football player who just got named the MVP for his second game played this year. I always hope this is a story my patients will listen to and I hope they think that if a child can choose to be healthy just to play then they should always choose to be healthy just to live.Tina Cantrell InvernessWhere is the outrage?Thank you for the hilariously funny cartoon Sunday (Sept. 1) with the black kid asking for the target tattoo birth mark to be removed from his chest. The rest of this letter is equally hilarious. Will you print it or is this too racially divisive? Does anyone remember Detective Melvin Santiago? He was a Jersey City police officer who was shot to death just a month ago, on July 13. Santiago was white. His killer, Lawrence Campbell, was black. Does anyone recall Obama appearing before national television and calling for justice for Detective Santiagos family? Does anyone recall Eric Holder rushing to Jersey City to see that justice was done? How about Officer Jeffrey Westerfield? He was a Gary, Indiana, police officer who was shot to death last month on July 6. Westerfield was white. His killer, Carl LeEllis Blount Jr. was black. Where was Obama? Where was Holder? Or Officer Perry Renn? He was an Indianapolis, Indiana, police officer who was shot to death just last month on July 5, the day before Officer Westerfield was killed. Officer Renn was white. His killer, Major Davis, was black. I dont recall any mention by Obama about the untimely death of Officer Renn. And, I doubt that Eric Holder rushed to Indianapolis to make sure justice was done. Or, maybe I just missed it. Vermillion Parish Deputy Sheriff Allen Bares was gunned down by two men just last June 23 in Louisiana. Deputy Bares was white. His two killers, Quintlan Richard and Baylon Taylor, were black. Was Obama outraged? Did Eric Holder rush to Louisiana to make sure that the family of Deputy Bares found justice? In Texas, Detective Charles Dinwiddie of the Killeen Police Department was murdered by Marvin Lewis Guy, a black male. Officer Dinwiddie was white. This happened on May 11, just over two months ago. I dont even recall seeing anything about that on the news. Certainly, the white citizens in Killeen didnt take to the streets to loot and burn businesses. Again, I dont recall any mention by Obama or Holder. Then, there is Officer Kevin Jordan of the Griffin, Georgia, police department. He was gunned down just two months ago on May 31. Officer Jordan was black. His killer, Michael Bowman, was white. This was a white man murdering a black police officer. Where was Jesse Jackson? Where was The Rev. Al Sharpton? Was there looting and burning on the streets of Griffin, Georgia? No. In fact, I dont recall hearing about this one in the news, as well. Why? You can draw your own conclusions. Over the past 60 days, there have been five reported deaths of police officers by gunshot in the U.S. Of those, four were white officers who were murdered by black men. Blacks complain that white officers threaten black men more aggressively on the street. You can draw your own conclusions on that one, as well.Doug Oxford Beverly Hills Letters toTHE EDITOR

Whether or not they produce dangerously high levels of toxins that can result in severe illness or death, one clear thing is the operative word eutrophic. That is Greek for well fed, as in nutrient pollution. This leads to two questions: If you are aware of this, why has the state response been so laggardly? If you are not aware of this, would you please take a moment for home study? Dr. Ed Phlips is a professor at the University of Floridas Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences (IFAS) program and might help in understanding the issues a little better. Could you visit his website at http://lakewatch .ifas.ufl.edu/ToxicAlgae/ ToxicAlgae.htm? Well, ever the pest, there are more questions regarding your new found predilection for saving our waters. Early in your term, you slashed the budgets and staffing of our state water management districts and Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), thus sharply curtailing their ability to carry out legislated mandates. You disposed of an enormous amount of institutional knowledge with the stroke of a pen, even as our problems with pollution and heavy demand on the resource spiraled upward. Now, it seems you have set about restoring a limited portion of those funds. Have you suffered an electioncycle epiphany? The water districts regulating central and north Florida have told us that we will no longer have sufficient supplies of ground water to provide for growth in the region after 2035. What do you intend to do that will allow Florida to meet that challenge? During the last legislative session, the Florida Senate passed by unanimous consent a springs protection bill that would have provided a first step in rectifying some of the problems we face. The Florida House declined to debate the legislation. Why did you remain silent on this very important issue? Robbing Peter to pay Paul has been standard political modus operandi for many years. It is not going to be a successful strategy in the very serious world of water resource management. Our future well-being (health and safety) and prosperity (welfare) is almost entirely grounded on the available supply and quality of our water resources. The Senate took a bold step in the framework of the bill it passed in requiringthat no harm befall our springs by virtue of permitting processes. Have a little faith in our ingenuity, sir: Help get this legislation passed. Our state has a long history of rising to meet challenges when it is required of us. It is the American way! While youre at it, would you talk to our legislators about restoring funding as originally proposed in the Senate bill? You are surely aware of the disaster last year in the Indian River Lagoon and the chronic recurrence of red tides along the southwest Florida coast. Did you ever have the pleasure of fishing in Florida Bay before it died? Did you ever see Lake Okeechobee when the water was clear and fish camps hummed with activity? Governor, our waters define this state; they are our brand. It is not the concrete core of Tampa, Jacksonville, Miami or Orlando that defines us. Before you became governor, the 2008 FDEP Integrated Water Quality Assessment proclaimed that inland and coastal inshore waters contributed over $600 billion per year to Floridas annual gross product. Do you think that is worth protecting? Do you know how far down the ladder second place resides? Sir, curious minds want to know.Dan Hilliard is a native Floridian and the president of Withlacoochee Area Residents Inc.COMMENTARYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, SEPTEMBER21, 2014 C5 000J8EX Tickets $100 per person [entry to hangar and drawing] Tickets available at: bgccitrus.org Regions Bank (Crystal River) Crystal River & Inverness Chamber offices Or through any board member Citrus 95.3 The Fox 96.7 Sheldon-Palmes Insurance of Hernando, Inc.

and state standards enacted to save firefighters lives have unintentionally created a barrier to volunteer service. Citrus County is comprised mostly of senior citizens, and as our volunteer firefighters have retired, there are fewer young people here in the county to take their place. Since implementing the fire MSBU, Fire Rescue has made significant improvements which have enhanced the service to the citizens and improved the safety of our firefighters. In looking at the first five years of the strategic plan, weve developed a comprehensive budget which determined the necessary rates for the fire MSBU in order to address the deficiencies within the department. It is important for citizens to know how their money is being spent. In the first year of the additional funding, we have purchased two new fire engines that replaced a 19-year-old engine and a 20-year-old engine. We have added additional personnel, allowing us to staff the Citrus Springs fire station with career firefighters, and added three firefighters to the Inverness station. We have been able to replace the firefighters bunker gear that was expired. We are also updating the equipment that is carried on our engines, along with upgrading some of our stations that are more than 50 years old and were not designed to staff firefighters for 24-hour coverage. Our firefighters put their lives on the line each day protecting the citizens of this great county; they deserve to have the proper equipment and resources to fulfill their mission. Although the fire MSBU may not have been popular to some, it was necessary in order for us to meet citizens expectations and provide adequate public safety. We have assured the citizens we will be fiscally responsible with their tax dollars. Since the inception of the fire MSBU, we have rolled back the millage rate on the ad valorem fire tax from .8014 to .6926, which equates to a savings of approximately $1,720,207 returned to the taxpayers. I would also like to share the costs our surrounding counties pay for their fire MSBUs. As you can see in the accompanying chart, the citizens of Citrus County pay much less for fire protection than our surrounding counties in terms of fire MSBU assessment rates. The fire MSBU is necessary in order for us to meet citizens expectations and provide the highest level of public safety. We will continue to ensure that all residents receive outstanding fire services within Citrus County. Your support is greatly appreciated by those who work in Fire Services.Chief Jim Goodworth has spent the last 31 years serving the citizens of Citrus County. He began his career with CCEMS in 1983 as a field paramedic, eventually becoming EMS chief. In 2006, he was hired as deputy fire chief and in 2012 was appointed fire chief.

Section DSUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Bruce WilliamsSMART MONEY DEAR BRUCE: When a spouse gets a percentage of her husbands Social Security while he is still living, how do they figure that out? Marlene DEAR MARLENE: You would have to discuss this in person with the Social Security Administration. There is a complicated formula. You must claim on your own Social Security account until that is exhausted, and if there is a credit coming from your husbands, it will be established. I really dont know how they come up with the formula, but I would sit down with a representative and discuss these questions thoroughly. You will note I said sit down: Make an appointment at your local Social Security office, take notes and ask a lot of questions. DEAR BRUCE: Our family has established a scholarship fund in memory of our father. We hold a major fundraising event each year to raise money for the fund with the goal of awarding a $1,000 scholarship annually, which we have done for two years. We want to invest the current fund amount of $22,000 so that we can get 5 percent interest and not have to continue the fundraising events each year. Do you have any suggestions on how to best invest the principal we currently have? K.P DEAR K.P .: What a lovely thought. I wish you well. I can appreciate how you dont wish to continue fundraising every year as that can become difficult. You should be able to get a 5 percent return and not have to continue fundraising if you invest in conservative, dividend-paying stocks. These should be established companies that have been around for a long time and are likely be around. Start by educating yourself in the stock market, and make things as simple as possible. Investigate two or three different types of companies, such as utilities, Face-to-face meeting will clear up any questions See MONEY/ Page D2 Dr. Fred HerzogNONPROFIT BRIEFS While the IRS may not mandate particular management structures, operational or administrative practices, it does expect 501(c)3 public charities to advance thoughtful governance practices. The IRS also expects nonprofits to set appropriate policies and conform to required tax law. What IRS does want is sound management and observance of tax laws that impact to profits. It is important to understand that the IRSs use of the term public charity means that a nonprofit supports an unfilled community need and uses donations and grant money to pay the expenses. IRSs expectation in granting federal income tax exemption is based on this practice. MISSION STATEMENT & ORGANIZATION DOCUMENTSNonprofits are encouraged to adopt and regularly review their mission statement and purpose. This is a prime test to determine if mission creep exists. The purpose/mission of a nonprofit should be publicly articulated backed by best practices to generate positive public awareness. This reinforces credibility, donations and grant awards to support the work of the organization.THE GOVERNING BODYAn informed board of directors should be actively engaged in the mission and purpose of the organization. Mission success results when best management practices are utilized in the operational aspect. Attending to the organizations financial condition is equally as important. Changes that significantly alter mission and purpose must be commuted to the IRS. Misuse of the organizations assets or revenue emanating from insider Nonprofit Governance & Practice, Part 4 See BRIEFS/ Page D2 Associated PressFruit is on display Thursday as hundreds of community members turned out to support local farmers and craftsmen at the Night Market at the Kalamazoo Farmers Market in Kalamazoo, Mich. Associated PressWASHINGTON The government will rewrite sweeping new food safety rules after farmers complained that earlier proposals could hurt business, the Food and Drug Administration said Friday. The FDAs new proposals would allow farmers to meet water quality standards more easily and to harvest crops sooner after using raw manure as fertilizer. The FDA offered the revised rules Friday, and the final rules are due next fall. The FDA has been haggling over how to write them since Congress passed a food safety law in 2010. Regulators say balancing the need for tighter food safety standards after major outbreaks in spinach, eggs, peanuts and cantaloupe against the needs of farmers who are new to such regulations has been a challenge. Michael Taylor, FDAs deputy commissioner for foods, says the agency is trying to achieve the goal of food safety in a practical way. The rules are new terrain for the agency, he says. The rules proposed last year would require farmers to take new precautions against contamination, making sure workers hands are washed, irrigation water is clean and that animals stay out of fields, among other things. Food manufacturers would also have to submit food safety plans to the government to show they are keeping their operations clean. Those changes would in many cases require new equipment, paperwork and record-keeping. None of those priorities would change in the revised rule. But after complaints from farmers big and small who said the rules were too burdensome, the new proposal would lower some standards for the amount of bacteria that can be found in irrigation water and reduce the frequency with which it is tested, in some cases. The proposal also reduces the amount of time required between fertilizing crops with raw manure and harvest and allows farmers to hold produce in a packing house without further regulations. The smallest farms would continue to be exempted from many of the rules. The organic industry had expressed concerns about the rules, especially because many organic farmers use raw manure as fertilizer and try to treat irrigation water with fewer chemicals. This approach has less potential to impose economic hardship on organic farmers, while at the same time supporting the safest food supply in the world, said Gwendolyn Wyard of the Organic Trade Association. The rules would mark the first time the FDA would have real authority to regulate food on farms. The agency said when it proposed the rules that they could cost large farms $30,000 a year. The food safety law was passed by Congress at the end of 2010, weeks before Republicans assumed control of the House. Since then, many GOP lawmakers have said the rules are too burdensome for farmers. Some Democrats advocating for organic farmers have also been critical, saying small farms cant afford the new standards. Supporters have said the new laws are needed after several high-profile foodborne illness outbreaks. While many farmers and food manufacturers already follow good food safety practices, the law would aim to ensure that all of them do. Government inspectors have pointed to dirty equipment, unsanitary conditions and animal feces as likely causes for salmonella, E. coli and listeria poisonings that have sickened hundreds in some of the recent outbreaks. There are an estimated 3,000 deaths a year from foodborne illness. The rules governing produce are already somewhat tailored to make the changes easier on farmers. They would apply only to certain fruits and vegetables that pose the greatest risk, like berries, melons, leafy greens and other foods that are usually eaten raw. A farm that produces green beans that will be cooked and canned, for example, would not be regulated. In addition to regulating farms and food manufacturing facilities, the food safety law authorized more inspections by the FDA and gave the agency additional powers to shut down facilities. The law also required stricter standards on imported foods. The new proposal will have a 75-day comment period. The FDA is legally required to finalize the rules by next year after they were sued by an advocacy group last year for missing deadlines. FARMERS, FDA CONTINUE TO JOUST OVER SAFETY RULES

decisions, document retentionand financial inurnment. When an organization has affiliates or federated chapters, consistency of operations is suggested. If potential for abuse or possible whistleblower claims occur, steps for immediate correction take precedence.FINANCIAL STATEMENTSBoard members are ultimately responsible for the finances and informational returns. The corporate secretary traditionally has responsibility for periodic review. Assignment of a registered agent (RA) acting as a compliance manager is highly recommended. The RA will receive all government requests and is obligated to alert the corporate officers accordingly. In the for-profit business, and now moreso in the nonprofit business, the RA plays an important role. When the annual budget is large enough to support an independent auditor, one should be hired. Accounting, recordkeeping and reporting are different for nonprofits with tax exemptions. Hire a professional who has direct experience in these matters. Transparency in the well-managed nonprofit earns public respect and support. An educated public responds to donations and grant requests.IRS RULES: THEORY AND PRACTICEIn the last four columns, Nonprofit Briefs has covered a myriad of suggestions and requirements to which nonprofits are expected to comply. The content has been gleaned and paraphrased from IRS publications currently in force. Over the past two to four years, the IRS has made many changes. Applications for various permissions and exemptions have been simplified and made more user-friendly. Political and congressional pressures have pushed and probed these processes to make work in this specialized field easier, with faster results. Therein are many voiced and concerned opinions. Deep controversy over recent changes has been voiced by experienced professionals in law, accounting, nonprofit management and high-ranking IRS officials. Changes made to simplify and quicken nonprofit applications open many opportunity for fraud and misrepresentation. Informed leadership should always seek professional advice. This practice must continue today in light of recent changes creating the uncertainty and ambiguity. neglect or abuse is to be strictly avoided. The board should seek to avoid dominance by one or more directors or staff. Decisionmaking should be balanced so operations are well-orchestrated. MANAGEMENT POLICIESManagement policies need to be spelled out and reduced to writing. A code of ethics should be established which is clear relative to conflicts of interest, investment of funds, fundraising, documentation of governance drug manufacturers, etc., that meet the criteria I established. Look for companies that have been around for a good many years, paying dividends, and over a period of time have risen in value by 2 percent to 5 percent a year. A good broker should be able to help, too, if you decide to go that path.Send questions to bruce @brucewilliams.com. Questions of general interest will be answered in future columns.

Mark Fallows, MD, pain management specialist, is offering targeted drug therapy for pain control. On Friday at 12 p.m., Dr. Fallows presents Targeted Drug Therapy for Chronic Pain 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. Space is limited; registration is required. Call 352-795-1234. Oct. 4 Floral City Bikes & BBQ. A fun-filled day in Floral City!

The Womens HEALTH and FITNESS Expo, hosted by the Business Womens Alliance of the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce, will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sept. 27 at the Crystal River Mall in the former Belk space. There will be activities throughout the day including talks, demos, screenings and opportunities to speak one on one with experts in a range of health, wellness and fitness fields. The Business Womens Alliance appreciates its major sponsors for the Womens HEALTH and FITNESS Expo, including presenting sponsor Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center, plus Advanced Urology Institute, Citrus Memorial Health System, Oak Hill Hospital, TobaccoFree Florida at the Citrus County Health Department, the Citrus County Chronicle Citrus 95/Classic Hits the Fox, Healthy Living Magazine and Publix. The Expos purpose is to educate women and those around them about their health, fitness and wellness.

Proceeds from last years Expo helped to fund 12 scholarships for young women of Citrus County. The experts at Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center, the BWA Womens HEALTH and FITNESS Expo presenting sponsor, remind you to Think F.A.S.T. when it comes to recognizing the symptoms of stroke. Stroke is a brain attack, and its an emergency. F.A.S.T. stands for FaceArms-Speech-Time. Face: Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop? Arms: Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward? Speech: Ask the person to repeat a simple phrase. Is the speech slurred or strange? Time: If you observe any of these signs, call 911 immediately. Recognizing the signs of stroke and seeking immediate treatment saves lives and prevents long-term disability. Learn more about stroke prevention, risks and treatment at the SRRMC booth at the BWA Womens HEALTH and FITNESS Expo. The SRRMC team members pictured here remind everyone to Think F.A.S.T.

Having been involved with the Governmental Affairs Committee of the Citrus County Builders Association for the past several years, it occurs to me that most people really dont understand what we are all about with the exception, of course, of those in county staff and local government who we deal with on a very regular basis. Our GAC is one of the only and longest running governmental watch-dog groups in Citrus County. We meet on a weekly basis to discuss issues that affect the citizens, taxpayers and business people of our county. Often, we have either elected officials or county staff as invited guests to discuss a multitude of issues that affect our community. As a melting-pot of builders, trades people and business people of all types, we offer a broad and diverse perspective on issues ranging from regulation to taxation. Our opinion is often sought and more often given on issues such as the permitting process, MSBUs and especially impact fees, as well as many others. We have made a difference on many of the ordinances, regulations and policies of this county over the past 20-plus years by being a vigilant overseer of the entire process. I would like to take this opportunity to invite all of our members to consider joining us at one of our meetings at noon Mondays. Your experience and participation would be welcomed.

Captains Mike Baize and Jody Johnson help us by taking some of the Aaron A. Weaver Chapter 776 Military Order of the Purple Heart veterans out fishing for a day. The Tournament Committee gives them each a free boat entry so that the captains and the veterans can participate in the tournament and the captains donate their time, supplies and services. Each captain donated each day to a different angler for a total of four veterans who were able to fish over two days. Additionally, Captain Baize donated his time, on Friday night, to help us with the Youth Captains Meeting for the Aaron Monier Memorial Youth Tournament, as well. The Fishing Tournament Committee is honored to know and thank these two fine men for their contribution to our cause: Captain Mike BaizeHome: 352-503-7458 Cell: 352-697-1811 Captain Mike is a good ole boy from Kentucky whose personality will keep you entertained throughout your fishing adventure. He moved to the Nature Coast Area 15 years ago and has been fishing the local Gulf flats from Crystal River to Chassahowitzka ever since. Capt. Mike guides from a 21-foot Carolina Skiff with a 115 horsepower Yamaha that will accommodate up to four anglers. The skiff has an 82-pound thrust motor guide trolling motor to target the elusive redfish. His specialty is fishing for redfish, trout and great times. Capt. Mike also offers sightseeing tours and scallop trips in season. Capt. Mikes boat is Coast Guard certified and is equipped with a cellphone and VHF radio. Give Capt. Mike a call and let the fishing adventure begin!Captain Jody JohnsonPhone: 352-247-0475 Jody was born and raised in Old Homosassa and has been around fishing since he was big enough to hold a rod. The past several years, he has spent an enormous amount of time fishing for huge trophy snook. He also enjoys fishing for reds and trout. Jody fishes from a 21-foot Carolina skiff powered by a 115 horsepower Mercury Outboard. Capt. Mike Baize Capt.

HOME AND GARDEN:CANDLESTICK PLANTS, E9

PAGE 40

Special to the ChronicleThis picture of a young girl with eggs she has collected from a chicken is likely an enlargment of an image from an advertising poster. my mother and her mother did in the past. I have enclosed two photos of the charming print featuring a lovely young girl sitting on a chicken crate, surrounded by hay in a barn, with a white rabbit munching on lettuce in the foreground. Beneath the rabbit is the word five, referring to the number of eggs she has collected from the hen in the crate beneath her. There is no signature that can be seen, perhaps there is one under the frame? This framed picture is backed with wood paneling; it has not been touched, that is, it is in the same condition it has been in for many years, at least 80. It hung in my grandmothers living room in Cazenovia, New York, until she passed away and left it to my mother, who in turn left it to me. I would appreciate any info you might have regarding this item. Thank you for your attention. D.I.M., Internet Dear D.I.M.: What a charming picture. I suspect it is an enlarged version of an advertising poster. The time of production is likely early 20th century. It would be wise to replace the wood panel on the back with acid-free heavy paper stock. There could be information about the image on the back of the picture. Potential dollar value is $150 to $300. Dear John: I am curious about the age and value of this trunk. I believe it is somewhere between mid1800s and early 1900s, but I would like to see what you have to say. I am not sure if my relining the inside reduces the value. What would be the value as-is and after it has been refurbished? I only oiled the wood and cleaned up the leather and relined the inside. The other parts I left as-is. It has both its side leather handles, is on four little caster wheels, has a storage tray, no key, and canvas on the outside. Considering its age, I would say this trunk is in excellent condition. There are no other markings that I can tell other then the lock. M., Internet Dear M.: Your steamer trunk was likely produced during the last quarter of the 19th century. Current interest in steamer trunks has disappeared, leaving potential dollar value at the catch-as-catch-can level. Do with it as you please; decorators often add a glass top and use it as a coffee table and conversation piece. Dear John: We have some family heirlooms and cannot seem to find them listed in any books to determine their value. The lamp looks like a form of milk glass or maybe even stone. Attached is a picture of the chandelier. R.H., Internet Dear R.H.: I think your ceiling lampshade was made between World War I and II. It has the look of art glass shades made in Europe during the mid-19th century. I think it was made in America of molded glass, perhaps by the Consolidated Glass Company of Ohio.

microfiber mite-proof covers from a reputable company, such as Mission: Allergy or National Allergy Supply, and linens and stuffed animals should be washed weekly, allergists say. The temperatures and detergents used are much less important than the regularity of washing, Sublett said. 4. Opt for smooth. Smooth surfaces that can be wiped clean are generally better for allergy-sufferers than more porous upholstered surfaces on couches, chairs and even car seats, Sublett said. 5. Clear and clean the air. To help keep indoor allergens of any kind at bay, homes should be smoke-free and pets should be kept out of the bedroom. For the very allergyprone, use a HEPA air filter in the bedroom with a CADR (clean air delivery rate) adequate for the size of the room. Install MERV 11 or 12 disposable, high-efficiency filters in the furnace and air conditioning system that can be changed every few months, according to Sublett. 6. Check the units. Allergists suggest that to minimize indoor allergens, heating and air conditioning units be cleaned and serviced every six months, and that gas appliances and fireplaces be vented to the outside and regularly maintained. spared throughout the rest of the house to show off the models potential for a spacious luxury lifestyle. Architectural details define the high ceilings. The model has hickory floors with large windows to take advantage of Black Diamonds famous golf course views from all through the house. The Burnham is located on the Highlands course with views of three holes. All the homes sold will have golf course views, as well. The model with a two-car garage and a golf cart entrance also shows off an optional swimming pool and spa. Rosselet said the model tries to reflect all possible upgrades to give buyers a feel for their homes potential. The Burnham is priced at $399,000 and for a limited time the golf course lot is included. And while Black Diamond is synonymous with golf, Rosselet emphasized that golf membership is not mandatory and residents can opt for a social membership. She said the gated, secure community attracts people for other reasons, including its convenient location, beautiful surroundings and of course the luxury homes. With 1,200 rolling acres, Black Diamond has more than 500 homes and three Tom Fazio-designed golf courses; the iconic Quarry Course, the Range Course and the Highland Course. The clubhouse, known for its stone columns, soaring ceiling and patio views, has been remodeled. There is a new visitors center and more developer lots are available. For more information or to visit the Burnham Model House, call Rosselet at 252-453-5473 or Charlene Angelo at 352-746-7400. green plant parts, such as tomato stalks, vegetable waste from the kitchen and grass clippings, as well as manures. Nitrogen fertilizers are concentrated sources of nitrogen, and are the active ingredient of commercial compost activators. As autumn approaches, an excess of compostable materials rich in carbon build up, so the way to speed up composting of piles built in the next few weeks is to add supplemental nitrogen. No need to balance nitrogen and carbon materials exactly, because microorganisms will eventually do it for you, albeit slowly if the excess is of carbon foods. Also, theres more at play than just carbon and nitrogen ratios. Particle sizes, for instance. Chopping the raw materials gives microorganisms more surface area to chew on initially. A machete is a handy, cheap and satisfying tool for this job. Another frequent cause of a sluggish compost pile is insufficient moisture. Sun and wind dry out piles that are free-standing or enclosed by wire mesh. A solid-walled bin speeds things along by holding in moisture and generated warmth. Theres often not enough water when you gather together quantities of dry materials, such as autumn leaves. The cure, of course, is to add water, and an effective way to do this is by adding raw materials in layers, watering each layer as the pile grows. The opposite condition, too much water, also slows composting. And soggy ingredients lead to another common composting problem a pile that gives off offensive odors or attracts flies. When too much water gets into a compost pile, air is displaced and a new set of microorganisms go to work, ones that work slowly and malodorously. The cure for a waterlogged pile is aeration, accomplished either by stirring the pile, or by turning and rebuilding it. Rotating drum bins make it especially easy to stir ingredients. Odors due to poor aeration also result when piles contain too many dense, succulent, raw materials, such as grass clippings or kitchen waste. These materials compound the odor problem because they are rich in nitrogen, which is vented off as ammonia. In this case, turning the pile and adding some fluffy, high-carbon material, such as straw, puts things in order. To monitor compost progress beyond what your nose or time will tell you, slide the long probe of a compost thermometer deep into a pile. Temperatures in a pile thats been built quickly in warm weather can soar to 140 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. No heat indicates insufficient moisture, nitrogen or air, or too small a pile. No matter what though, any pile of living or once-living materials will eventually turn to compost, and a few benchmarks signal when. Take the piles temperature: It has cooled down. Look at the pile: Its mostly a dark brown, crumbly fudge. Smell it: Finished compost has a pleasant, woodsy aroma.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER21, 2014E3 E14SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER21, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE See Vi rtual Tours @ www .resalehomes4u.com GAIL COOPER Always There For You REALTY Multimillion Dollar Realtor (352) 634-4346 Office : (352) 382-1700 000JBYV 6 BALSAM DRIVE Custom home 3/2.5/2 2090 sq. ft. living Gas fireplace in Great Room Glassed Florida room private views Well for outside irrigation AC/heat new in 2008 Dual paned windows New roof / skylights in 2005 Seller is original owner #711742 $149,900 E-mail me: homes4u3@mindspring.com 40 CHINKAPIN CIRCLE Custom home with golf course views Solar and gas heated pool/spa 4/3/2 2845 sq. ft. of living Gorgeous hardwood flooring AC/ heat new in 2010 Roof replaced in 2005 Well for irrigation Home warranty for the buyers #712350 $229,000 CENTURY 21 J .W.

Associated PressA builder works on theconstructionof new homes in Belmar, N.J. Associated PressWASHINGTON U.S. home construction plunged in August, led by steep decline in the volatile apartment category. But single-family house construction, a larger and more stable portion of the market, fell only modestly. Construction fell 14.4 percent in August to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 956,000 homes, the Commerce Department said Thursday. This reverses the sharp gains in July when the rate of new construction rose to 1.12 million homes, the highest annual rate since 2007. Last months decrease primarily came from builders starting fewer apartment complexes, which plummeted 31.5 percent compared to July. Apartments have propelled much of the growth in residential construction over the past year, but the pace has been volatile from month to month. Apartment starts surged 51 percent in July.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER21, 2014E13 E4SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER21, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000JC3G 5569 W.

Mike McHale 352-302-3203 Jane Weber PAGE E9 Real Estate Digest PAGE E3 Associated PressWASHINGTON Average long-term U.S. mortgage rates surged this week, marking their largest one-week gain this year. Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday the nationwide average for a 30-year loan jumped to 4.23 percent from 4.12 percent last week. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, rose to 3.37 percent from 3.26 percent. At 4.23 percent, the rate on a 30-year mortgage is at its highest level since the week ended May 1, though it is still at a historically low level. Mortgage rates often follow the yield on the 10-year Treasury note. The 10-year note traded at 2.62 percent Wednesday, up sharply from 2.54 percent a week earlier. It was trading at 2.63 percent Thursday morning. Bond yields rise when bond prices fall. The increase in the yield on the benchmark Treasury bond was stoked by speculation in financial markets that the Federal Reserve might abandon its nearly 6-year-old policy of keeping short-term rates at record lows. But at their meeting this week that ended Wednesday, Fed policymakers decided to keep the low rates, at least for a few more months. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was unchanged from last week at 0.5 point. The fee for a 15-year mortgage also remained at 0.5 point. The average rate on a five-year adjustable-rate mortgage rose to 3.06 percent from 2.99 percent. The fee was stable at 0.5 point. Engraved stock certificates: Theyre not just for investors Dear John: Here is a copy of the original excellent document I found in a thrift shop 10 years ago. I held onto the document in hopes of passing it on to a family member, but I just do not know where or how to start. This share certificate is dated 7/21/1923. I would think a family member might want this. What are your thoughts and ideas? B., Homosassa Dear B.: Stock and bond certificates are a specific category of collecting within the big collecting category of Paper Ephemera. In the early 19th century, as engraving and printing techniques developed, the vignettes used on stock certificates became very decorative. There are a number of reasons for collecting stock and bond certificates; highest on the totem pole are the beautiful engraved vignettes. The highest prices paid are for certificates printed prior to 1900, especially pre-1850s. The one you have issued in 1923 would sell in the $5 to $10 range. Dear John: I enjoy your weekly article in the Citrus County Chronicleand would like to find out about what l think is called a print, which was handed down to me about 10 years ago.

Some residents choose to maintain their own lawns, while others hire a lawn maintenance service. Whether you care for your landscape or hire a company to maintain your yard, its important to follow these recommended tips to protect our water resources. Everything you (or your landscape company) put on the landscape could potentially have negative effects on our water quality if not done correctly. Pollutants such as fertilizer, pesticides and grass clippings that wash into storm drains, retention ponds, or directly into water bodies can cause poor water quality, fish kills and green murky water. Whether you live directly on the water or twenty miles inland your fertilizer practices can affect our aquifer, lakes, springs and rivers. By following the tips below and asking your landscape professional to do the same, you can do your part to ensure pollutants stay out of water bodies and protect our water resources for generations to come. Fertilizer should not be applied by either professional applicators or homeowners within 10 feet of a bay, lake, stream, canal, wetland pond or any water body. Waterfront property owners should establish a six-foot maintenance or no mow zone adjacent to water bodies to reduce the potential for fertilizer residuals entering bodies of water. Keep grass clippings, vegetative material and debris away from storm drains, ditches, water bodies and roadways. Never hose down chemical spills. Keep absorbent materials such as kitty litter onsite for spill cleanup. Select landscape plants that are well adapted to your site and have low water requirements. Treat specific weedy areas rather than resorting to general weed and feed mixtures. Read and follow the instructions on the fertilizer bag. Never overfertilize. Repeatedly using large amounts of nitrogen fertilizer can increase lawn pests and environmental stress problems. Use slow-release fertilizers that make nutrients available to plants for a longer period of time. Use iron instead of nitrogen if you want to green up your lawn during the rainy season. Never apply fertilizer before a heavy rain. Rain can wash fertilizer into roadways, drains and water bodies, which can cause pollution. Avoid excessive watering-in of fertilizer. Many granular fertilizers specify a quarter -inch of irrigation per zone, or about 15 minutes of watering, which gets the product to the root zone and keeps it out of the aquifer. Always use a deflector shield on broadcast spreaders to avoid fertilizer directly hitting water or surfaces where it can be washed away. Only fertilize during the growing season. When grass is dormant, fertilizer is not absorbed and seeps into our aquifer. Protect our water resources Tips for eco-friendly use of fertilizer Pollutants such as fertilizer, pesticides and grass clippings that wash into storm drains, retention ponds, or directly into water bodies can cause poor water quality, fish kills and green murky water.

quantities in the fertilizer and are used in very small quantities by trees. These elements used to be referred to as secondary elements because they are in addition to the nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium numbers found on the fertilizer label. However, these elements are often critical for plant biology and are equally as important as the big three. They are, however, needed in much smaller quantities by the plant, often in parts per million, and each one generally comprises only several percent, and often a fraction of a percent, of the total pounds of fertilizer. These micronutrients consist of the elements iron, boron, zinc, nickel, molybdenum, copper and manganese. Each one is important to aid in plant processes such as photosynthesis, respiration, movement and metabolism of sugars, root growth, cell wall formation and other functions. Soils are often deficient in one or more of these micronutrients, and their deficiency is manifested as one or more plant symptoms. For example, a boron deficiency shows up as twisted and stunted new growth; iron deficiency as yellowing between the veins of a leaf; and manganese deficiency as frizzled new growth, particularly on palm trees. More often than not, nutrient deficiencies are caused by soil pH which is either too low or too high, rendering these nutrients unavailable. The ideal soil pH for most plants in our area is 5.5 to 6.5. If you suspect a nutrient deficiency, take a soil sample to the Citrus County Extension office for a pH and nutrient test. Nitrogen is generally the Cadillac of elements, and is responsible for vegetative growth of plants. Trees and plants which appear very green and healthy likely have sufficient nitrogen. Nitrogen can appear in several forms in fertilizer, and plants make no distinction between organic (animal and vegetable matter) and inorganic (synthetic or mineral based) fertilizers. Therefore, it is the personal choice of the user as to whether to use inorganic or organic fertilizers. Inorganic fertilizers have a higher analysis of N-P-K (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium) nutrients. Inorganic fertilizers, such as cow manure, fish meal, bone meal, or sludge, have a lower analysis, such as 2-2-2, but fish meal or blood meal can be as high as 10 to 12 percent N. Organic fertilizers depend upon microbial activity to break down in the soil and thus last longer than inorganic fertilizers, usually four months or longer. However, they may not release enough nutrients to provide plants and trees a sufficient quantity of the nutrient. In cooler weather, this microbial breakdown takes even longer. Some inorganic fertilizers contain both water-soluble and water-insoluble (slow release) nitrogen. Ideally, the fertilizer you purchase should contain approximately 50 percent water-insoluble nitrogen. This is nitrogen in a form which does not dissolve in the soil as quickly as other forms; sulfur coated urea or IBDU are two examples of water insoluble nitrogen. These products contain nitrogen which is coated, resulting in a slower release of nitrogen which may last almost as long as organic fertilizers. Fertilizers, particularly inorganic or synthetic, have a tendency to produce salts in the soil. Too much salt accumulation can be detrimental to plants. Therefore, it is best to avoid fertilizers that contain potassium nitrate, potassium chloride, urea, ammonium nitrate and sodium nitrate. These have what is known as a high salt index, which can burn plants, particularly newly established trees and shrubs. One final thought: As we approach cooler weather, plants begin to slow their production of vegetative (foliar) growth. Therefore, it is best not to apply a high nitrogen fertilizer in the fall and winter months to avoid a flush of winter growth which may be sensitive to a frost. However, to encourage overwintering root growth, use a low-N fertilizer with a higher P and K analysis, such as 5-10-10. The higher phosphorous and potassium will aid the plants and trees into root formation and growth, the breakdown and metabolism of starches that are stored in the roots, and improves winter hardiness. Starch is a result of photosynthesis, and is the energy source for green plants. Thus, more root formation and stored energy during the winter results in better growth in the spring. As you can see, there is a lot to the understanding and proper use of fertilizers. I recommend purchasing fertilizers at a garden center or farm supply store where knowledgable personnel are available to answer any questions. Purchasing the proper fertilizer and applying it at the appropriate times is important in tree and plant maintenance.Eric H.

Applications for building permits, a sign of future activity, dipped 5.6 percent to an annual rate of 998,000. Apartment construction has surged 19.2 percent in the past 12 months. Meanwhile, single-family starts have risen just 4.2 percent. The shift among builders to increased apartment building is a sign that a rising share of Americans will be renters, rather than homeowners. Jed Kolko, chief economist at the real estate firm Trulia, said that builders are already constructing too many single-family houses. The vacancy rate for these homes was 10.7 percent in 2013, compared to 7.4 percent in 2000, according to the Census. Were still building single family homes faster than we can fill them, said Kolko, saying that builders will need to place a greater emphasis on apartments. Changes in starts for multi-unit homes such as apartments influence the monthly construction totals, but the category accounted for just 32 percent of starts in August. Thats up slightly from 29 percent in August 2013. The growing preference for rentals likely reflects the sluggish, five-year economic recovery. Most incomes remain below their pre-recession levels, making it harder for families to save for a down payment and qualify for a mortgage. The Census Bureau said this week that median household incomes were $51,939 in 2013. Adjusting for inflation, thats 8 percent lower than in 2007, when the recession began. Still, solid job growth for much of 2014 has increased the total number of paychecks in the economy. When more people are working, that should provide a boost for home construction. One measure of building confidence has been steadily improving for the past four months. The National Association of Home Builders/Wells F argo builder sentiment index rose in September to 59, the highest reading since November 2005. Readings above 50 indicate more builders view sales conditions as good rather than poor. Builders see sales activity and traffic from would-be buyers as improving. Still, interest from firsttime buyers continues to lag historical averages. New homes are selling for an average price of $339,100, according to the Commerce Department. Those prices, coupled with weak wage growth, have made affordability a problem for potential buyers seeking a new home. But economists are still looking for a rebound heading into the tail end of the year. Job gains through August have averaged more than 215,000 a month this year. Associated PressAlthough the thought of sleeping with millions of dust mites microscopic arachnids that feast on flakes of skin is just plain gross, its something most people can handle without worry. After all, our bodies are inhabited by multitudes of bacteria, to which we seldom give a thought. For the many people who suffer from allergies, though, the allergens in dust-mite feces and body parts can lead to chronic sinus problems and coughing, among other symptoms. If gone untreated, the problem can escalate to eczema and asthma, particularly in children, according to James Sublett, presidentelect of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. The sooner you intervene, the less likely the problems are to escalate, he said. Luckily, homes can be made more livable for allergy-sufferers and less amenable to dust mites in just a few steps. About a quarter of Americans suffer from some sort of allergy and of those one-half to twothirds are sensitive to dust-mite allergens, according to Sublett, making it one of the most common causes of allergies. Around the world, dust mites are the most common indoor allergen, said Robert Wood, director of the pediatric allergy and immunology division of Johns Hopkins University. If dust-mite allergies are suspected, the first step is to get tested by an allergist. While periodically replacing all your bedding might seem to make sense, experts say its unnecessary for those without allergies and insufficient for allergy sufferers. Instead, these tips from allergists can help make any home friendlier to those with indoor allergies, dust mites included: 1. Keep It Dry. One of the biggest and most common mistakes people make is to install vaporizers and humidifiers, Sublett said. Moisture can and does cause all kinds of problems. Dust mites cant survive in less than 50 percent humidity, so buy a humidity meter and, if needed, a dehumidifier to keep humidity to between 35 percent and 50 percent. Just three hours above that level of humidity, though, is enough to keep the dust mites alive, he said. 2. Rip out the rugs and ditch the drapes. Carpet and heavy drapes are a reservoir for allergens like dust mites and should be removed, particularly in bedrooms. If removing them isnt an option, the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology recommends frequent vacuuming using a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter. Those with allergies should stay away or wear an N95 particulate mask during and immediately after vacuuming, since particles can remain airborne for up to two hours. 3. Just Encase. All mattresses, box springs, pillows and comforters should be encased in well-sealed, tightly woven, Tips to help allergy sufferers indoors See ALLERGY/ Page E14 HOMESContinued from Page E4 TREESContinued from Page E3

Weeds grow tall and take over an untended garden when homeowners are away on summer vacations. On returning home from a six-week trip to Canada last weekend, I was welcomed by a large bush, covered in delightful bright yellow spikes of foottall flower clusters that had grown on a roadside pile of finely-milled mulch. The alien weed resembled ahuge candelabra. It was swarmed by pollinating insects ants, bees, beetles, lovebugs and butterflies all feeding on the sweet nectar and being dusted with golden-yellow pollen which they carried to the next flower. Caterpillars were eating leaves, buds and flowers.Senna alatais a larval host plant for three Florida butterfly species Cloudless Sulphur, Orange-barred Sulphur and Sleepy Orange caterpillars. Adult female butterflies lay tiny eggs singly or in clusters. A few days later, one baby caterpillar emerges from each egg to eat its host plant. As the caterpillar instar outgrows its skin it sheds the old, tight one and fills a new, bigger skin. This weed is commonly called candlebrush, candlestick plant and candelabra bush. Formerly thought to be in the Cassiagenus, it is now correctly known as Senna alata. There are about 250 species of Sennas from warm tropical and sub-tropical regions around the world. Most originated in the Americas. Further south Senna alataremains evergreen in cold hardiness zones 10-12 where it can be a perennial shrub up to 30 feet tall. Frost-tender, it will be killed dead by a hard freeze and not regrow the following spring. If winter is mild in our tri-county region, Candlebrush can resprout. Cut off dead branches after the last frost in March. In north central Florida gardens, candlestick bush usually grows from seed annually and reaches 5 to 8 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet in diameter. Leaves are compound pinnate with seven to 21 pairs of opposite leaflets. There is with no single leaflet at the top. Color is light green. Edges are smooth, not toothed. Stems are green and fleshy but not easily broken by wind. Flowers bloom in late summer to early fall, September to October, followed by long green beans containing the seeds for next years plants. Seeds sprout readily in various welldrained, humus-rich to sandy soil. Candlebrush needs no supplemental irrigation or fertilizer to prosper. Gather a few dry seed pods in late fall to plant in spring. I plan to prune off dead flowers so the plant will not set seeds to proliferate rampantly in my neighborhood. A similar, but more frost-hardy senna, S. bicapsularis, flowers later from November to December and is commonly called Christmas senna. Its stems become woody with age and it overwinters well locally in Citrus Countys zones 9a and b and colder 8b north of the Withlacoochee River. Stems can reach 12 feet tall and will fall over if not staked. Its leaves have just three pairs of opposite leaflets. There are several highly invasive Sennas, including S pendula, more prevalent in South Florida. S. pendulahas leaves with four to seven pairs of opposite leaflets. Check to be sure you are not buying an invasive plant listed by the Florida Exotic Plant Pest Council, FLEPPC. Freezes in North Central Florida will kill this invasive, but seeds could overwinter to create disturbances in natural habitats.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant.

quantities in the fertilizer and are used in very small quantities by trees. These elements used to be referred to as secondary elements because they are in addition to the nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium numbers found on the fertilizer label. However, these elements are often critical for plant biology and are equally as important as the big three. They are, however, needed in much smaller quantities by the plant, often in parts per million, and each one generally comprises only several percent, and often a fraction of a percent, of the total pounds of fertilizer. These micronutrients consist of the elements iron, boron, zinc, nickel, molybdenum, copper and manganese. Each one is important to aid in plant processes such as photosynthesis, respiration, movement and metabolism of sugars, root growth, cell wall formation and other functions. Soils are often deficient in one or more of these micronutrients, and their deficiency is manifested as one or more plant symptoms. For example, a boron deficiency shows up as twisted and stunted new growth; iron deficiency as yellowing between the veins of a leaf; and manganese deficiency as frizzled new growth, particularly on palm trees. More often than not, nutrient deficiencies are caused by soil pH which is either too low or too high, rendering these nutrients unavailable. The ideal soil pH for most plants in our area is 5.5 to 6.5. If you suspect a nutrient deficiency, take a soil sample to the Citrus County Extension office for a pH and nutrient test. Nitrogen is generally the Cadillac of elements, and is responsible for vegetative growth of plants. Trees and plants which appear very green and healthy likely have sufficient nitrogen. Nitrogen can appear in several forms in fertilizer, and plants make no distinction between organic (animal and vegetable matter) and inorganic (synthetic or mineral based) fertilizers. Therefore, it is the personal choice of the user as to whether to use inorganic or organic fertilizers. Inorganic fertilizers have a higher analysis of N-P-K (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium) nutrients. Inorganic fertilizers, such as cow manure, fish meal, bone meal, or sludge, have a lower analysis, such as 2-2-2, but fish meal or blood meal can be as high as 10 to 12 percent N. Organic fertilizers depend upon microbial activity to break down in the soil and thus last longer than inorganic fertilizers, usually four months or longer. However, they may not release enough nutrients to provide plants and trees a sufficient quantity of the nutrient. In cooler weather, this microbial breakdown takes even longer. Some inorganic fertilizers contain both water-soluble and water-insoluble (slow release) nitrogen. Ideally, the fertilizer you purchase should contain approximately 50 percent water-insoluble nitrogen. This is nitrogen in a form which does not dissolve in the soil as quickly as other forms; sulfur coated urea or IBDU are two examples of water insoluble nitrogen. These products contain nitrogen which is coated, resulting in a slower release of nitrogen which may last almost as long as organic fertilizers. Fertilizers, particularly inorganic or synthetic, have a tendency to produce salts in the soil. Too much salt accumulation can be detrimental to plants. Therefore, it is best to avoid fertilizers that contain potassium nitrate, potassium chloride, urea, ammonium nitrate and sodium nitrate. These have what is known as a high salt index, which can burn plants, particularly newly established trees and shrubs. One final thought: As we approach cooler weather, plants begin to slow their production of vegetative (foliar) growth. Therefore, it is best not to apply a high nitrogen fertilizer in the fall and winter months to avoid a flush of winter growth which may be sensitive to a frost. However, to encourage overwintering root growth, use a low-N fertilizer with a higher P and K analysis, such as 5-10-10. The higher phosphorous and potassium will aid the plants and trees into root formation and growth, the breakdown and metabolism of starches that are stored in the roots, and improves winter hardiness. Starch is a result of photosynthesis, and is the energy source for green plants. Thus, more root formation and stored energy during the winter results in better growth in the spring. As you can see, there is a lot to the understanding and proper use of fertilizers. I recommend purchasing fertilizers at a garden center or farm supply store where knowledgable personnel are available to answer any questions. Purchasing the proper fertilizer and applying it at the appropriate times is important in tree and plant maintenance.Eric H.

Applications for building permits, a sign of future activity, dipped 5.6 percent to an annual rate of 998,000. Apartment construction has surged 19.2 percent in the past 12 months. Meanwhile, single-family starts have risen just 4.2 percent. The shift among builders to increased apartment building is a sign that a rising share of Americans will be renters, rather than homeowners. Jed Kolko, chief economist at the real estate firm Trulia, said that builders are already constructing too many single-family houses. The vacancy rate for these homes was 10.7 percent in 2013, compared to 7.4 percent in 2000, according to the Census. Were still building single family homes faster than we can fill them, said Kolko, saying that builders will need to place a greater emphasis on apartments. Changes in starts for multi-unit homes such as apartments influence the monthly construction totals, but the category accounted for just 32 percent of starts in August. Thats up slightly from 29 percent in August 2013. The growing preference for rentals likely reflects the sluggish, five-year economic recovery. Most incomes remain below their pre-recession levels, making it harder for families to save for a down payment and qualify for a mortgage. The Census Bureau said this week that median household incomes were $51,939 in 2013. Adjusting for inflation, thats 8 percent lower than in 2007, when the recession began. Still, solid job growth for much of 2014 has increased the total number of paychecks in the economy. When more people are working, that should provide a boost for home construction. One measure of building confidence has been steadily improving for the past four months. The National Association of Home Builders/Wells F argo builder sentiment index rose in September to 59, the highest reading since November 2005. Readings above 50 indicate more builders view sales conditions as good rather than poor. Builders see sales activity and traffic from would-be buyers as improving. Still, interest from firsttime buyers continues to lag historical averages. New homes are selling for an average price of $339,100, according to the Commerce Department. Those prices, coupled with weak wage growth, have made affordability a problem for potential buyers seeking a new home. But economists are still looking for a rebound heading into the tail end of the year. Job gains through August have averaged more than 215,000 a month this year. Associated PressAlthough the thought of sleeping with millions of dust mites microscopic arachnids that feast on flakes of skin is just plain gross, its something most people can handle without worry. After all, our bodies are inhabited by multitudes of bacteria, to which we seldom give a thought. For the many people who suffer from allergies, though, the allergens in dust-mite feces and body parts can lead to chronic sinus problems and coughing, among other symptoms. If gone untreated, the problem can escalate to eczema and asthma, particularly in children, according to James Sublett, presidentelect of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. The sooner you intervene, the less likely the problems are to escalate, he said. Luckily, homes can be made more livable for allergy-sufferers and less amenable to dust mites in just a few steps. About a quarter of Americans suffer from some sort of allergy and of those one-half to twothirds are sensitive to dust-mite allergens, according to Sublett, making it one of the most common causes of allergies. Around the world, dust mites are the most common indoor allergen, said Robert Wood, director of the pediatric allergy and immunology division of Johns Hopkins University. If dust-mite allergies are suspected, the first step is to get tested by an allergist. While periodically replacing all your bedding might seem to make sense, experts say its unnecessary for those without allergies and insufficient for allergy sufferers. Instead, these tips from allergists can help make any home friendlier to those with indoor allergies, dust mites included: 1. Keep It Dry. One of the biggest and most common mistakes people make is to install vaporizers and humidifiers, Sublett said. Moisture can and does cause all kinds of problems. Dust mites cant survive in less than 50 percent humidity, so buy a humidity meter and, if needed, a dehumidifier to keep humidity to between 35 percent and 50 percent. Just three hours above that level of humidity, though, is enough to keep the dust mites alive, he said. 2. Rip out the rugs and ditch the drapes. Carpet and heavy drapes are a reservoir for allergens like dust mites and should be removed, particularly in bedrooms. If removing them isnt an option, the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology recommends frequent vacuuming using a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter. Those with allergies should stay away or wear an N95 particulate mask during and immediately after vacuuming, since particles can remain airborne for up to two hours. 3. Just Encase. All mattresses, box springs, pillows and comforters should be encased in well-sealed, tightly woven, Tips to help allergy sufferers indoors See ALLERGY/ Page E14 HOMESContinued from Page E4 TREESContinued from Page E3

Mike McHale 352-302-3203 Jane Weber PAGE E9 Real Estate Digest PAGE E3 Associated PressWASHINGTON Average long-term U.S. mortgage rates surged this week, marking their largest one-week gain this year. Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday the nationwide average for a 30-year loan jumped to 4.23 percent from 4.12 percent last week. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, rose to 3.37 percent from 3.26 percent. At 4.23 percent, the rate on a 30-year mortgage is at its highest level since the week ended May 1, though it is still at a historically low level. Mortgage rates often follow the yield on the 10-year Treasury note. The 10-year note traded at 2.62 percent Wednesday, up sharply from 2.54 percent a week earlier. It was trading at 2.63 percent Thursday morning. Bond yields rise when bond prices fall. The increase in the yield on the benchmark Treasury bond was stoked by speculation in financial markets that the Federal Reserve might abandon its nearly 6-year-old policy of keeping short-term rates at record lows. But at their meeting this week that ended Wednesday, Fed policymakers decided to keep the low rates, at least for a few more months. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was unchanged from last week at 0.5 point. The fee for a 15-year mortgage also remained at 0.5 point. The average rate on a five-year adjustable-rate mortgage rose to 3.06 percent from 2.99 percent. The fee was stable at 0.5 point. Engraved stock certificates: Theyre not just for investors Dear John: Here is a copy of the original excellent document I found in a thrift shop 10 years ago. I held onto the document in hopes of passing it on to a family member, but I just do not know where or how to start. This share certificate is dated 7/21/1923. I would think a family member might want this. What are your thoughts and ideas? B., Homosassa Dear B.: Stock and bond certificates are a specific category of collecting within the big collecting category of Paper Ephemera. In the early 19th century, as engraving and printing techniques developed, the vignettes used on stock certificates became very decorative. There are a number of reasons for collecting stock and bond certificates; highest on the totem pole are the beautiful engraved vignettes. The highest prices paid are for certificates printed prior to 1900, especially pre-1850s. The one you have issued in 1923 would sell in the $5 to $10 range. Dear John: I enjoy your weekly article in the Citrus County Chronicleand would like to find out about what l think is called a print, which was handed down to me about 10 years ago. I have it hanging in my front hall and enjoy it, as John SikorskiSIKORSKIS ATTIC Inside...

They also form a large category of collecting; most collectors are chiefly interested in the beautiful engravings. Certificates issued prior to 1900 fetch the best prices. This example from 1923 would likely sell for $5 or $10.Special to the Chronicle Special to the ChronicleMaintaining an attractive landscape is important to many. Some residents choose to maintain their own lawns, while others hire a lawn maintenance service. Whether you care for your landscape or hire a company to maintain your yard, its important to follow these recommended tips to protect our water resources. Everything you (or your landscape company) put on the landscape could potentially have negative effects on our water quality if not done correctly. Pollutants such as fertilizer, pesticides and grass clippings that wash into storm drains, retention ponds, or directly into water bodies can cause poor water quality, fish kills and green murky water. Whether you live directly on the water or twenty miles inland your fertilizer practices can affect our aquifer, lakes, springs and rivers. By following the tips below and asking your landscape professional to do the same, you can do your part to ensure pollutants stay out of water bodies and protect our water resources for generations to come. Fertilizer should not be applied by either professional applicators or homeowners within 10 feet of a bay, lake, stream, canal, wetland pond or any water body. Waterfront property owners should establish a six-foot maintenance or no mow zone adjacent to water bodies to reduce the potential for fertilizer residuals entering bodies of water. Keep grass clippings, vegetative material and debris away from storm drains, ditches, water bodies and roadways. Never hose down chemical spills. Keep absorbent materials such as kitty litter onsite for spill cleanup. Select landscape plants that are well adapted to your site and have low water requirements. Treat specific weedy areas rather than resorting to general weed and feed mixtures. Read and follow the instructions on the fertilizer bag. Never overfertilize. Repeatedly using large amounts of nitrogen fertilizer can increase lawn pests and environmental stress problems. Use slow-release fertilizers that make nutrients available to plants for a longer period of time. Use iron instead of nitrogen if you want to green up your lawn during the rainy season. Never apply fertilizer before a heavy rain. Rain can wash fertilizer into roadways, drains and water bodies, which can cause pollution. Avoid excessive watering-in of fertilizer. Many granular fertilizers specify a quarter -inch of irrigation per zone, or about 15 minutes of watering, which gets the product to the root zone and keeps it out of the aquifer. Always use a deflector shield on broadcast spreaders to avoid fertilizer directly hitting water or surfaces where it can be washed away. Only fertilize during the growing season. When grass is dormant, fertilizer is not absorbed and seeps into our aquifer. Protect our water resources Tips for eco-friendly use of fertilizer Pollutants such as fertilizer, pesticides and grass clippings that wash into storm drains, retention ponds, or directly into water bodies can cause poor water quality, fish kills and green murky water.

Associated PressA builder works on theconstructionof new homes in Belmar, N.J. Associated PressWASHINGTON U.S. home construction plunged in August, led by steep decline in the volatile apartment category. But single-family house construction, a larger and more stable portion of the market, fell only modestly. Construction fell 14.4 percent in August to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 956,000 homes, the Commerce Department said Thursday. This reverses the sharp gains in July when the rate of new construction rose to 1.12 million homes, the highest annual rate since 2007. Last months decrease primarily came from builders starting fewer apartment complexes, which plummeted 31.5 percent compared to July. Apartments have propelled much of the growth in residential construction over the past year, but the pace has been volatile from month to month. Apartment starts surged 51 percent in July.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER21, 2014E13 E4SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER21, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000JC3G 5569 W.

microfiber mite-proof covers from a reputable company, such as Mission: Allergy or National Allergy Supply, and linens and stuffed animals should be washed weekly, allergists say. The temperatures and detergents used are much less important than the regularity of washing, Sublett said. 4. Opt for smooth. Smooth surfaces that can be wiped clean are generally better for allergy-sufferers than more porous upholstered surfaces on couches, chairs and even car seats, Sublett said. 5. Clear and clean the air. To help keep indoor allergens of any kind at bay, homes should be smoke-free and pets should be kept out of the bedroom. For the very allergyprone, use a HEPA air filter in the bedroom with a CADR (clean air delivery rate) adequate for the size of the room. Install MERV 11 or 12 disposable, high-efficiency filters in the furnace and air conditioning system that can be changed every few months, according to Sublett. 6. Check the units. Allergists suggest that to minimize indoor allergens, heating and air conditioning units be cleaned and serviced every six months, and that gas appliances and fireplaces be vented to the outside and regularly maintained. spared throughout the rest of the house to show off the models potential for a spacious luxury lifestyle. Architectural details define the high ceilings. The model has hickory floors with large windows to take advantage of Black Diamonds famous golf course views from all through the house. The Burnham is located on the Highlands course with views of three holes. All the homes sold will have golf course views, as well. The model with a two-car garage and a golf cart entrance also shows off an optional swimming pool and spa. Rosselet said the model tries to reflect all possible upgrades to give buyers a feel for their homes potential. The Burnham is priced at $399,000 and for a limited time the golf course lot is included. And while Black Diamond is synonymous with golf, Rosselet emphasized that golf membership is not mandatory and residents can opt for a social membership. She said the gated, secure community attracts people for other reasons, including its convenient location, beautiful surroundings and of course the luxury homes. With 1,200 rolling acres, Black Diamond has more than 500 homes and three Tom Fazio-designed golf courses; the iconic Quarry Course, the Range Course and the Highland Course. The clubhouse, known for its stone columns, soaring ceiling and patio views, has been remodeled. There is a new visitors center and more developer lots are available. For more information or to visit the Burnham Model House, call Rosselet at 252-453-5473 or Charlene Angelo at 352-746-7400. green plant parts, such as tomato stalks, vegetable waste from the kitchen and grass clippings, as well as manures. Nitrogen fertilizers are concentrated sources of nitrogen, and are the active ingredient of commercial compost activators. As autumn approaches, an excess of compostable materials rich in carbon build up, so the way to speed up composting of piles built in the next few weeks is to add supplemental nitrogen. No need to balance nitrogen and carbon materials exactly, because microorganisms will eventually do it for you, albeit slowly if the excess is of carbon foods. Also, theres more at play than just carbon and nitrogen ratios. Particle sizes, for instance. Chopping the raw materials gives microorganisms more surface area to chew on initially. A machete is a handy, cheap and satisfying tool for this job. Another frequent cause of a sluggish compost pile is insufficient moisture. Sun and wind dry out piles that are free-standing or enclosed by wire mesh. A solid-walled bin speeds things along by holding in moisture and generated warmth. Theres often not enough water when you gather together quantities of dry materials, such as autumn leaves. The cure, of course, is to add water, and an effective way to do this is by adding raw materials in layers, watering each layer as the pile grows. The opposite condition, too much water, also slows composting. And soggy ingredients lead to another common composting problem a pile that gives off offensive odors or attracts flies. When too much water gets into a compost pile, air is displaced and a new set of microorganisms go to work, ones that work slowly and malodorously. The cure for a waterlogged pile is aeration, accomplished either by stirring the pile, or by turning and rebuilding it. Rotating drum bins make it especially easy to stir ingredients. Odors due to poor aeration also result when piles contain too many dense, succulent, raw materials, such as grass clippings or kitchen waste. These materials compound the odor problem because they are rich in nitrogen, which is vented off as ammonia. In this case, turning the pile and adding some fluffy, high-carbon material, such as straw, puts things in order. To monitor compost progress beyond what your nose or time will tell you, slide the long probe of a compost thermometer deep into a pile. Temperatures in a pile thats been built quickly in warm weather can soar to 140 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. No heat indicates insufficient moisture, nitrogen or air, or too small a pile. No matter what though, any pile of living or once-living materials will eventually turn to compost, and a few benchmarks signal when. Take the piles temperature: It has cooled down. Look at the pile: Its mostly a dark brown, crumbly fudge. Smell it: Finished compost has a pleasant, woodsy aroma.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER21, 2014E3 E14SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER21, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE See Vi rtual Tours @ www .resalehomes4u.com GAIL COOPER Always There For You REALTY Multimillion Dollar Realtor (352) 634-4346 Office : (352) 382-1700 000JBYV 6 BALSAM DRIVE Custom home 3/2.5/2 2090 sq. ft. living Gas fireplace in Great Room Glassed Florida room private views Well for outside irrigation AC/heat new in 2008 Dual paned windows New roof / skylights in 2005 Seller is original owner #711742 $149,900 E-mail me: homes4u3@mindspring.com 40 CHINKAPIN CIRCLE Custom home with golf course views Solar and gas heated pool/spa 4/3/2 2845 sq. ft. of living Gorgeous hardwood flooring AC/ heat new in 2010 Roof replaced in 2005 Well for irrigation Home warranty for the buyers #712350 $229,000 CENTURY 21 J .W.

Special to the ChronicleThis picture of a young girl with eggs she has collected from a chicken is likely an enlargment of an image from an advertising poster. my mother and her mother did in the past. I have enclosed two photos of the charming print featuring a lovely young girl sitting on a chicken crate, surrounded by hay in a barn, with a white rabbit munching on lettuce in the foreground. Beneath the rabbit is the word five, referring to the number of eggs she has collected from the hen in the crate beneath her. There is no signature that can be seen, perhaps there is one under the frame? This framed picture is backed with wood paneling; it has not been touched, that is, it is in the same condition it has been in for many years, at least 80. It hung in my grandmothers living room in Cazenovia, New York, until she passed away and left it to my mother, who in turn left it to me. I would appreciate any info you might have regarding this item. Thank you for your attention. D.I.M., Internet Dear D.I.M.: What a charming picture. I suspect it is an enlarged version of an advertising poster. The time of production is likely early 20th century. It would be wise to replace the wood panel on the back with acid-free heavy paper stock. There could be information about the image on the back of the picture. Potential dollar value is $150 to $300. Dear John: I am curious about the age and value of this trunk. I believe it is somewhere between mid1800s and early 1900s, but I would like to see what you have to say. I am not sure if my relining the inside reduces the value. What would be the value as-is and after it has been refurbished? I only oiled the wood and cleaned up the leather and relined the inside. The other parts I left as-is. It has both its side leather handles, is on four little caster wheels, has a storage tray, no key, and canvas on the outside. Considering its age, I would say this trunk is in excellent condition. There are no other markings that I can tell other then the lock. M., Internet Dear M.: Your steamer trunk was likely produced during the last quarter of the 19th century. Current interest in steamer trunks has disappeared, leaving potential dollar value at the catch-as-catch-can level. Do with it as you please; decorators often add a glass top and use it as a coffee table and conversation piece. Dear John: We have some family heirlooms and cannot seem to find them listed in any books to determine their value. The lamp looks like a form of milk glass or maybe even stone. Attached is a picture of the chandelier. R.H., Internet Dear R.H.: I think your ceiling lampshade was made between World War I and II. It has the look of art glass shades made in Europe during the mid-19th century. I think it was made in America of molded glass, perhaps by the Consolidated Glass Company of Ohio. Potential dollar value is less than $100.John Sikorski has been a professional in the antiques business for 30 years.
