Like some other Duke employees, Markham was there on his own time looking for possible good deals on stuff he can use. I like to shop, he said. With approximately $100 million worth of items ranging from household-size nuts, bolts and nails to a 35-foot enclosed trailer and 3-ton chain hoist, the Duke Energy auction goes live today. Prospective bidders have spent two days previewing the immense selection of tools, spare parts and various components from the retired Crystal River area nuclear plant. The assortment includes giant pieces of special-function equipment, work clothes and scores of electronics, valves, containers, pumps, fans, motors and gauges. Duke Energy spokeswoman Heather Danenhower said the event has attracted a wide range of interest from other utilities, construction companies and the general public.

SIDIBE Staff writerINVERNESS The Board of County Commissioners has approved one of the more politically contentious issues faced by the board the purchase of the WestCitrus Government Center in Meadowcrest, near Crystal River.

See PURCHASE/ Page A9 ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerCitrus County School District officials find themselves between a rock and a hard spot. Do they follow Florida School Health Administrative Guidelines and prohibit all medications without a doctors authorization? Or do they use common sense in allowing 14,000 students to utilize medications considered harmless, such as ChapStick? The Citrus County School Board is moving toward finding an agreeable medium for both state regulators and parents. The board on Tuesday discussed in a workshop revising a policy that includes an exception list of medications acceptable on campus. I totally understand where health services hands are tied, said school board Chairman Thomas Kennedy. What I am struggling with is common sense personal items. Why could we not draft an amendment or a change in policy that defines two levels of over-the-counter medications? One that is approved for students to have in their possession within the parents responsibility and one that includes all of the other ones that would be handled in the clinic. Over the summer, Citrus County School District officials learned they would have to require students to bring a signed doctors authorization for all over-thecounter medications including lip balm, cough drops and sunscreen before they could be administrated. The Citrus County Health Department rescinded protocols used in the school clinics to treat students, as the doctor in charge felt they were too broad and legally didnt feel like he could sign protocols for every student in the district. Tuesday, the board discussed adding obvious items like sunscreen and lip balm to the list of approved over-the-counter medications allowed to be in a students possession. I look back at when all of our kids were in school and I dont believe there was ever an issue with students leaving their cough drops in their purse or locker, said Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel. Elementary level may be different. But I think we need to get to the common-sense piece and not make it so ridiculous on our parents. Many of them are working two jobs and cant get to the doctor for a note. Board members agreed and requested that School Board Attorney Wes Bradshaw revise the policy to include an accepted list of medications to be allowed in a students possession. He is to word the policy revision to state that students would not be allowed to bring over-the-counter medications to school without doctors authorization except for items A, B, C and D. Parents would be taking on the responsibility of their child having these items at school. That policy will also go through a revision before returning to the school board for review and a vote.Contact Chronicle education reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-563-5660, ext. 1334, or eworthington @chronicleonline.com.

Around theSTATE Duke gas plant finds supportDescribing the project as the optimal option to meet future electricity needs, staff members of the state Public Service Commission this week backed a proposal by Duke Energy Florida to build a power plant in Citrus County, according to the News Service of Florida. Staff members on Monday recommended that the commission approve what is known as a determination of need, a critical step in the approval of new power plants. The commission is slated to take up the issue during an Oct. 2 meeting. Duke is seeking to build a 1,640-megawatt plant, which would start generating electricity in 2018, adjacent to its Crystal River complex. The $1.5 billion natural-gas plant is part of a plan that also involves shutting down two old coal-fired generating units.Ozello organization to meet on SaturdayThe Ozello Civic Association will host a public meeting of the Committee to Save Ozello at the community center at 9:30 a.m. Saturday.

From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Board looks at C.R. 491 standards MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS Citrus County commissioners on Tuesday began laying the groundwork for a medical and business corridor on County Road 491 complete with development standards. Four commissioners generally supported a consultants plan for creating land development standards for a C.R. 491 overlay, which was placed in the countys comprehensive plan in February. Commissioner Scott Adams, a vocal opponent of the medical corridor, said he doesnt support any plan that offers development incentives. Ive done things the oldfashioned way at my expense, he said. Its not governments job to pick whos going to be made millionaires. The proposed standards and incentives include: Giving developers a 20 percent discount on building application fees. The discount would not apply to impact fees. Requiring monumentstyle signs, architectural standards for buildings, no chain-link fences and landscaping. Commissioner Dennis Damato said he doesnt support portable signs for the corridor. Theyre tacky, he said. Way-finding signs along C.R. 491 for businesses that do not have highway frontage. Commissioners, other than Adams, showed solid support. Love it, love it, love it, Commissioner Rebecca Bays said. I would love to see these applied throughout our county. Tuesdays presentation was a public workshop with no vote. Consultant Ethel Hammer will present the proposed standards to the public at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 1, at the Lecanto Government Building. The schedule calls for commissioners to vote on the standards in January. Rebecca Bayswould like to see wayfinding signs throughout the county. Associated PressAmerican crocodile hatchlings leave their nest at Everglades National Park. A University of Florida study has found a record number of American crocodile hatchlings in Everglades National park this year, providing hope that restoration efforts are helping the once endangered species. Associated PressGAINESVILLE A record number of American crocodile hatchlings were counted in Everglades National Park this year, providing hope that restoration efforts are helping the onceendangered species, researchers said Tuesday. University of Florida researcher Frank Mazzotti has been monitoring the crocodiles since 1978, a few years after the reptile received federal endangered species status. He and a team of researchers caught 962 of the hatchlings this year in the park, nearly doubling the 554 found in 2013. The animals apparent rebound led to the governments reclassification of the species as threatened in 2007. The crocodiles decline is blamed on a network of canals dug into the Everglades in the early 20th century to drain marsh water for agriculture. The influx of saltier water increased salinity, which is harmful to the crocodiles. They otherwise can live for decades. Restoration efforts have plugged some of the holes in the park, allowing for better water quality. Mazzotti said that although there isnt definitive proof that restoration efforts and the latest count are correlated, it is a good indication. What we hope is the lesson is that ecosystem restoration efforts can work, Mazzotti said in a news release, adding that crocodiles are good indicators of waterway health.

State BRIEF FSU picks politician as next school presidentTALLAHASSEE Florida State University has chosen state Sen. John Thrasher as its next president despite significant campus opposition. The FSU board voted 11-2 Tuesday to hire Thrasher over three academics. Thrasher is an attorney and former state House speaker. He has longstanding ties to the institution and helped FSU gain a medical school. But his candidacy roiled faculty and some students who questioned how FSU can improve its standing nationally with someone who lacks experience in higher education. Thrashers supporters contend his political clout and business connections will help the university get the financial help it needs to grow. Student protesters began chanting FSU is not for sale after the vote. From wire reports

LOUELLIOTTJONES Chiefland CitizenSarah Lorraine Spirit and her six children were laid to rest in a private funeral service on Monday, but what may not rest are the questions of what motivated her father, Don C. Spirit, to shoot them on Thursday, then calmly call the Gilchrist County Sheriffs Office to say what he had done and how he planned to kill himself as well. On Tuesday morning, the Gilchrist County Sheriffs Office released the recording of the elder Spirits call to the 911 center. Yes, maam, I just shot my daughter and shot all my grandkids and Ill be sitting on my step and when you get here Im going to shoot myself, Spirit said to the woman who answered the 911call at about 4 p.m. Don Spirit told the unidentified woman at the call center who remainedcalm throughout the two-minute call that he would kill himself when the deputies arrived. Ill just shoot myself and (you) can figure it out, he said All the kids are dead in the house, he said when questioned. He said there were six kids and one adult dead, one of ems a baby. When they get here Im going to shoot myself on the back step, he told the 911 operator. As Spirit ended the call, the woman could be heard whispering to another person, I need help here. And when the first deputy arrived, he spoke to Spirit, who was true to his word. As the sirens of numerous emergency responders grew louder, the elder Spirit killed himself with a .45-caliber handgun in the back of the single-wide mobile home where the windows and door were covered in rusting sheet metal. In the yard was his daughter, Sarah, 28, and inside, throughout the home were her children Kaleb Kuhlman, 11, Kylie Kuhlmann, 9, Jonathan Kuhlman, 8, Destiny Stewart, 5, Brandon Stewart, 4, and Alana Stewart, born June 28. All were dead of gunshot wounds. The Gilchrist County Sheriffs Office said no clear motive has been determined. The latest release also said that an investigation by local, state and federal agencies is continuing into how the elder Spirit, a convicted felon who once served three years for illegal gun possession, came to be in possession of the handgun. Preliminary autopsy results indicate that all deaths were the results of gunshots from a .45-caliber handgun. A .45-caliber handgun was recoveredclose to the suspect. All of the childrens bodies were located in various locations inside the residence, while the bodies of the two adults were found outside the residence. The final autopsy report will not be complete for several weeks. The investigation has revealed that Don Spirit was a convicted felon, and federal, state, and local law enforcement authorities are investigating how he may have obtained the firearm. As stated before, this tragic and devastating event may never be fully explained. We would continue to ask everyone to keep the victims family, friends, classmates, and the community of Bell, Florida, in their thoughts and prayers. The murder-suicide rocked Bell, a town of 400 and home to Gilchrist Countys only stoplight. The county hasabout 16,000 residents.

supervisor of elections. The buildings owner, Gulf to Lakes Associates Ltd., reduced the initial asking price from $4.05 million to $3.3 million. The building currently has 25,000 square feet of space that is available for rent. The deal is expected to close Sept. 30. Interim County Administrator Jeff Rogers presented the plan by saying the board was choosing to exercise an option to purchase the building as per the lease agreement. A line of people expressed opposition to the plan, urging the board to nix the purchase and keep the lease in place. Crystal River City Manager Dave Burnell read a resolution from his city council urging the board to reconsider the Meadowcrest option in favor of moving the west-side services and office space back into the citys boundaries. The county moved the office space from that citys boundaries to its current location in 2011. Phil Jannarone, a Crystal River resident, also expressed his opposition to the purchase of the building, adding that members of the public expressed their feelings about this purchase during the primary election last month when Kenney was defeated. Local attorney Bill Grant said his objection is notwith the lease agreement, but that hewould like to see the purchase stopped. However, Damato, Kenney and Meek restated their support for the plan. Damato said the main function of the center is to provide services to citizens by the constitutional officers at a convenient, accessible location. He also introduced letters from the constitutional officers touting the benefits of the center and the volume of people they serve at the location. Let us all work together to make the home of that service a permanent one by the purchase of this property for the continued betterment of our county, Damato said. Meek said the purchase means the countys investment in the building will be protected in the long term and added it was a good deal. Kenney also expressed his support for the plan and said the previous location of the offices in Crystal River was deplorable and that they owed the public a better location and services, which was why they moved to the current location. Adams, who has been opposed to the plan from the beginning, also urged the board to postpone the vote until two new board members are sworn in in November. He said the results of the primary election clearly indicate the voters do not have much confidence in the current board, especially when it comes to handling fiscal matters. I dont know why they dont seem to get it. I do, Adams said. Bays said her opposition was based onherview that thecounty has a lack of a clear method of accounting for the impacts of its financial decisions. however, said the county offered to give FDS a $40-a-ton rate for the Inglis trash because the company wants to merge its recycling business with the county. Company general manager Randy Messer acknowledged that the company has that interest to offset losses in recycling commodities. Messer said a curbside recycling program could divert trash from the landfill, thereby extending its life. We would like to talk to you about what diversion is worth to the county, he said. Commissioners said any talk of recycling is not related to FDSs request to haul Inglis trash to the county landfill. Interim public works director Larry Brock said the board could allow outof-county trash at a disposal rate so long as it covers the actual cost of disposal, which he said is $34 a ton. Commissioner Joe Meek said the request seems reasonable. I do not see what the drawback is, he said. Inglis received informal bids from Waste Pro, which now has the contract, plus FDS and Good Fellas. It decided last week to seek formal bids. Also Tuesday, discussion on allowing Good Fellas to transport Citrus County School District trash to the companys landfill in Lake Panasoffkee was delayed a month because company president Charlie Dean Jr. was unavailable for Tuesdays meeting. In other business Tuesday, the board: Agreed with consultant W.D. Higginbotham to extend the county administrator application deadline to Nov. 21, with commissioners set to pick finalists for interviews at their Dec. 9 meeting. Higginbotham said extending the deadline until after the Nov. 4 election should encourage more applicants. It will enhance our recruitment, he said. Higginbotham said the job has attracted 49 applicants; of those, 22 meet minimum qualifications. Only two have county administrator experience, though not in Florida. Gave its backing for the Citrus County Fair Association to apply for a $550,000 state grant for upgrades at the county fairgrounds. The support does not include any local funding. Approved up to $20,000 to Save Crystal River Inc. for designing a Lyngbya removal pilot dredging project in Kings Bay.

detailed in a 173-page catalog. The items are spread over three warehouses and some outside space at the energy complex. Most of the items appeared new, though some are used and refurbished, and none of them have been contaminated by exposure to nuclear material. They were even dusted off for the occasion. There are different applications so there is interest in all the components from users, resellers and others, said Jeff LaPratt, project manager for investment recovery. He said going into the sale there was no specific goal; their challenge was to maximize what they can get and return the maximum amount they can to the ratepayers. We believe the competitive nature of an auction will produce higher prices, Danenhower said. Were going to let the market determine the best prices for these items.Customers to benefitMonths of planning have gone into the auction. Danenhower said proceeds from the sale of the assets will directly benefit Florida customers by reducing future billing associated with the nuclear plant. Even though the plant has been offline since 2009 and is now retired, Duke customers will continue to pay for a planned $617 million attempt to increase the plants power output. And some of the parts earmarked for that effort are now in the auction. On an average electric bill, Duke residential customers pay about $3.45 a month for costs associated with the plant. Duke is also in the process of selling off 76 unused nuclear fuel assemblies from the plant, which could benefit customers. As with the fuel assemblies, the numerous nuclear plant components can only be sold to benefit Florida customers, rather than just being shipped to another Duke operation. It will all get sold, said LaPratt, even if it ends up being sold for scrap. He is also optimistic about buyer turnout. He said working through Heritage Global Partners, which is handling the auction, they have reached out to an estimated 100,000 potential bidders from all over the world. Danenhower said results from the sale are expected to be available in November after all the transactions are finalized. Youll need more than a pickup truckBuyers will be responsible for picking up their purchases, which in many cases will require a crane or other equipment and professional movers. And LaPratt noted that much of the stuff cannot be transported over the road, but will have to go out by rail or barge. More than 270 potential bidders had registered by Tuesday to place bids online or in person from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today at the Plantation on Crystal River. The process is still open, but participants must register online at www.hgpauction.com or at the door.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty @chronicleonline.com.

US clampdown on tax maneuver leaves its markNEW YORK A handful of big companies pursuing overseas mergers to lower their tax bills came under pressure Tuesday after the U.S. unveiled rules to discourage them. The Treasury Department announced new regulations on Monday aimed at making these so-called inversion deals less lucrative. In a typical deal, an American company buys a foreign firm based in a country with a lower tax rate, then moves its headquarters overseas. Drug companies in Ireland and the U.K. have been popular targets. The pharmaceutical company AbbVie, based in Chicago, reached an agreement to buy Dublin-based Shire in July for $54 billion. Shares of both companies sank in Tuesday trading. AbbVie Inc. lost 2 percent in New York trading, while Shire sank 2 percent in London. Among other companies getting hit in Tuesday trading, Minneapolis-based Medtronic Inc., which plans to buy Dublin-based Covidien Plc., fell 4 percent. Covidien lost 3 percent. The British drugmaker AstraZeneca, still considered a likely takeover candidate after it successfully rebuffed overtures from Pfizer Inc. earlier this year, slumped 3 percent. About 50 U.S. companies have carried out inversions over the past decade, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service.FDA warns doctors to beware fake drug distributorsWASHINGTON U.S. health regulators are trying to help doctors spot counterfeit and unapproved drugs by raising awareness of illegal operations that peddle bogus drugs to health professionals. Federal prosecutors have recently uncovered rogue companies distributing foreign versions of Botox, fake cancer drugs and other unapproved or contaminated medicines in the U.S. Often those operations will entice physicians by faxing too good to be true flyers that offer 75 percent or more off pricey injectable drugs. They are targeting doctors and medical clinics and using these aggressive marketing tactics to offer medications at discount rates, said Ilisa Bernstein, acting director of the Food and Drug Administrations office of compliance. Beginning Tuesday the FDA will push back with its own educational campaign, faxing flyers to physicians across the country on how to recognize bogus offers and counterfeit drugs. Were fighting back with their own medicine, Bernstein said. One FDA flyer lists clues for spotting drugs that are not FDA-approved, including:Labels that are not in English.Unfamiliar dosing instructions.Missing safety information.A product name that differs from the name on an FDA-approved drug. The agency recommends doctors and purchasing administrators only buy drugs from wholesale distributors licensed in their states. Under a new federal law, all wholesalers must be state-licensed by the beginning of 2015. Counterfeit or foreign versions of drugs often enter the U.S. from overseas. The World Health Organization estimates that global sales of medicines that are fake, contaminated or otherwise illegal total $430 billion a year. In developing countries, up to 50 percent of the drug supply may be fake. Thats many times more than in developed countries, where most potentially dangerous fake drugs are sold through rogue Internet pharmacies. But counterfeit drugs are increasingly getting into doctors offices, pharmacies and hospitals.Russia proposes curbs for foreign media ownershipMOSCOW Russias parliament has given preliminary approval to a bill limiting foreign ownership in Russian media to 20 percent. The State Duma voted 434-1 to pass the first reading of the law. The bill can be amended in the second reading, and either adopted or withdrawn in the third. The bill has been seen as the Kremlins latest attempt to stifle media freedom. Many of Russias leading media outlets, including the Vedomosti daily and the Russian Forbes magazine, have foreign ownership. The proponents of the bill said it was crucial to introduce the curbs in the view of the information war waged on Russia because of the Ukraine crisis. Ukraine and Western countries claim that Russia has sent troops and equipment to aid separatist pro-Russia rebels in Ukraines east; Moscow denies those allegations. In the time of the information war, we must ensure our information security and protect our public opinion from actions of the enemy, said Roman Chuichenko, a parliament member from the United Russia party that is President Vladimir Putins power base.Proposal would send Wyoming wind energy to LALOS ANGELES Four companies proposed an $8 billion project Tuesday that within a decade could send wind energy generated on the plains of Wyoming to power-thirsty households in Southern California. The sprawling project if approved and financed would create one of the countrys largest wind farms 40 miles north of Cheyenne, a huge energy storage site inside caverns in a Utah salt formation and a 525-mile electric transmission line connecting them. This project would be the 21st centurys Hoover Dam, said Jeff Meyer of Pathfinder Renewable Wind Energy, one of the companies behind the plan, referring to the 726-foot high span across the Colorado River that for decades has produced hydroelectric power for Nevada, Arizona, and California.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER24, 2014 A11 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,800 1,850 1,900 1,950 2,000 2,050 MS AMJJA 1,960 2,000 2,040 S&P 500Close: 1,982.77 Change: -11.52 (-0.6%) 10 DAYS 16,000 16,400 16,800 17,200 17,600 MS AMJJA 16,920 17,140 17,360 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 17,055.87 Change: -116.81 (-0.7%) 10 DAYSAdvanced913 Declined2226 New Highs13 New Lows134 Vol. (in mil.)3,204 Pvs. Volume3,256 1,778 1,839 801 1884 23 132 NYSE NASD DOW 17171.8817055.8717055.87-116.81-0.68%+2.89% DOW Trans.8525.578445.078445.07-69.36-0.81%+14.11% DOW Util.553.55550.32551.00-1.59-0.29%+12.32% NYSE Comp.10889.5310815.4210815.42-77.22-0.71%+3.99% NASDAQ4536.034508.424508.69-19.00-0.42%+7.95% S&P5001995.411982.771982.77-11.52-0.58%+7.27% S&P4001401.111388.211388.21-11.75-0.84%+3.40% Wilshire 500021024.5720877.0020877.00-131.37-0.63%+5.94% Russell 20001131.631118.721118.72-10.64-0.94%-3.86% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

BRAYS PEST CONTROL We are now including: Associated PressNEW YORK Grim economic news from Europe and airstrikes in Syria rattled global stocks Tuesday. Most of the damage was felt in European markets, which fell sharply after a closely watched gauge of business activity for the region fell to a nine-month low. The disappointing news about Europes economy also weighed down Wall Street. The Dow Jones industrial average opened lower and finished the day with its second triple-digit loss in a row. Investors have been dealing with meager economic growth in Europe for months. The eurozone economy has been flat or barely growing since April, hobbled by the lingering effects of a debt crisis, uncertainty over a conflict in Ukraine and a lack of confidence among European consumers, businesses and banks. It has a very feeble recovery going on that is vulnerable to even the slightest external shock, said Jacob Kirkegaard, senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. The European Central Bank has announced a series of measures to jolt the economy, cutting interest and pumping money into the financial system by buying bonds backed by assets such as auto and credit-card loans. But it has yet to go as far as the U.S. Federal Reserve did, buying government bonds in an effort to push longterm interest rates lower. Carl Weinberg, chief economist at High Frequency Economics, is not optimistic: Recovery will take years. European market indexes sank after the economic news. Germanys DAX fell 1.6 percent, Frances CAC 40 fell 1.9 percent and the U.K.s FTSE 100 lost 1 percent. In U.S., the Dow slid 116.81 points, or 0.7 percent, to 17,055.87. The S&P 500 index lost 11.52 points, or 0.6 percent, to 1,982.77 and the Nasdaq composite fell 19 points, or 0.4 percent, to 4,508.69. The Dows triple-digit fall on Tuesday follows a 107-point stumble from the day before. The blue-chip index hasnt posted two losses of 100 or more points since June. Still, the outlook in the U.S. is far more positive than Europe. The economy has been gaining strength after getting off to a slow start this year. Growth reached a 4.2 percent annual pace from April through June. Unemployment has dropped to 6.1 percent in August from 7.2 percent a year earlier. Employers have been adding 215,000 jobs a month this year, up from 194,000 a month in 2013. Consumers are more confident and willing to take on debt. But individual countries economies cannot stand on their own in todays global economy. If Europe and Asian economies were to lose more traction, it could spill over into the U.S., traders say. Companies in the Standard & Poors 500 index, for example, generate nearly half their sales abroad. When it comes right down to it, U.S. companies do business globally, said Quincy Krosby, a market strategist with Prudential Financial. Unless global demand can keep up, its going to start hurting these companies. Global news drags down markets BusinessBRIEFS From wire reports
OPINION Page A12WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2014 Hold them accountableI see in the Chronicle(Sept. 18) that Dina Emmanuel, already in trouble for allegedly using a county credit card to fill her own gas tank, has now been arrested for allegedly scarfing up more than $100,000 county money. It is also interesting to note that AmeriGas, who didnt bother to pay rent to the county, suddenly folded their tents and left Citrus County. This whole mess smells bad, and it isnt the odor of propane lingering in the air. How did this county employee have the ability to embezzle all this money and nobody caught on? How much more money went her way? Who was watching the store? Obviously nobody watched what she was doing and that is incredible. Is anyone else in the county government lining their pockets? Who had the oversight and failed to do their job? This hasnt come out yet. It is almost inconceivable that anyone could have let this go on for so long unnoticed. A thorough investigation is in order over this scandal. Over the many decades Ive worked in the corporate world, I have never seen a company any company that had such lax or nonexistent checks and balances. If there was no oversight or procedures provided, those responsible for setting procedures should be fired pronto! If such oversight was in place but the responsible persons failed in their duty, they must be fired pronto! If investigation shows there was more to this than mere oversight, criminal charges must be filed. When we see all the money embezzled and not collected, it is harsh for this county in difficult times, but lets look more closely. This is my money! This is your money this money was stolen from every citizen in Citrus County and someone has to be held accountable. Fire anyone who failed to do their job and indict anyone with dirty hands.Harry Cooper HernandoThey do as adults doIm writing this letter to all the inconsiderate people around. Have you gone to a grocery store and seen people walk right past a cart outside, then go in and take a cart someone else brought in? Have you gone to a school performance, the adults talk all through it and the children too? No one gets up and asks the audience to be quiet. The children have practiced so hard for this performance. I picked up boxes of tissues that some inconsiderate man knocked over and just kicked them aside and walked away. When I said something to him, I got a nasty reply. Its no wonder children dont have manners. They do as the adults do, dont care.Lynette Gerard Lecanto WASHINGTONPresident Obamas vow not to put boots back on the ground in Iraq, or send them to Syria, has prompted some analysts to wonder what kind of footwear is worn by U.S. military advisors and the socalled black-ops personnel dispatched by the CIA. Maybe theyre in Gucci loafers. Washington is engaged in both the silly and the serious as the politicians and the pundits debate Obamas plan to defeat and ultimately degrade ISIS, the self-declared Islamic State. Obama wants to do it largely through air strikes. If boots on the ground become necessary, Obama says they will be somebody elses boots, not those belonging to U.S. combat soldiers. Testifying before Congresson Tuesday, Army General Martin Dempsey, who chairs the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he would not hesitate to recommend to the president the insertion of U.S. troops into the conflict if he thought that was necessary. It was really the only thing he could say in response to a question that sought to see if he had the backbone to stand up to the commander in chief should the situation warrant. Dempsey passed the test. Hes no yes man. But his definition of troops on the ground is much narrower than the Washington Post headlineon Wednesday, Combat role is not off table. The sub-head, Dempsey: Special Forces may be needed, offered essential context. For example, U.S. military advisors are already in Iraq serving as forward observers to call in air strikes. As Dempsey explained, he is consulting with Obama on a case-by-case basis whether small teams of U.S. advisers should accompany Iraqi soldiers in certain situations. The parameters of exactly what advisers deployed to Iraq will be doing is very much a focus of Congress as lawmakers prepare to fund the training of moderate Syrians battling ISIS in Syria. After the November election, Congress will likely debate additional authority for Obama to expand air strikes and counter-terrorism efforts into Syria. Obamas critics call his plan a house of cards because he has not yet secured commitments for ground troops from other countries in the region even though they have more at stake than the U.S. in this fight. Without ground troops, according to their argument, ISIS cannot be defeated. Air power alone cant do the job. Admittedly theres a lot thats unknown about the course Obama has chosen, but its not as dire as the critics suggest. The model for what Obama envisions is the way the Northern Alliance routed the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2003 with the assistance of the CIA and a small number of U.S. forces operating covertly. The Northern Alliance had some 20,000 fighters, not a big number, but its strength was magnified by U.S. air power. Skeptics should do the math. The troops for this collective effort against ISIS will come from the Kurdish forces in northern Iraq, known as the Peshmerga, and also from Kurdish forces in Northern Syria. Meanwhile, the Iraqi government is getting closer to forming a unity government under a newly elected prime minister, which should make it possible for Iraq to field a unified army with both Sunnis and Shiites. This would contrast with the Iraqi Army that dropped its American-supplied weapons and fled before the ISIS onslaught. Those soldiers felt no loyalty toward the Shiite-dominated government in Baghdad. There are also Shiite-led militias in Iraq. Once enemies of the U.S., they mobilized to stop ISIS short of Baghdad. And although proven fighters, their mere presence alienates Sunnis, who, in turn, might swing toward ISIS. How the militias can be incorporated into the Iraqi Army or controlled by the Iraqi government is an open question. In the end these militias represent a form of war lordism, as witnessed in Somalia and elsewhere. So, regardless of their military acumen, they cannot be allowed to act independent of the government. In this powder keg of religion and politics, the presence of either free-wheeling Shiite militias or regular U.S. ground troops would constitute a provocation and be a huge mistake.Clearly, boots on the ground come in many styles, and not all are appropriate for this fight. Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift author the Washington Merry-Go-Round column, founded in 1932 by Drew Pearson.

You should. By now, people all over the United States have seen a recent Associated Press story featuring Citrus County. We were characterized as the image of the future for an aging nation, based on our demographic of more than 34 percent of our population age 65 or older. For comparison, statewide only about 19 percent of the population is 65 or older, and nationwide the number is about 14 percent. Having a high concentration of mature adults in the community brings advantages and disadvantages. Among the positives older residents tend to be very engaged in the community, from voting turnout to volunteering. Many are small business owners, maybe on their second or third careers. Economically, the county relies heavily on its retiree population. We have a higherthan-state-average home ownership rate of about 83 percent (vs. 68 percent statewide) which supports a range of housing-related businesses. Active retirees thrive on Citrus Countys leisure opportunities, including golfing, boating, biking and others, constituting another big economic engine in the county. Retirement pensions and Social Security in Citrus County represent about 89 percent of income other than earnings, compared with 53 percent statewide and 46 percent nationally. So its understandable that we have such a strong focus on controlling public expenditures and keeping taxes low. Our large older population brings challenges, too. Its sometimes more difficult to attract businesses, families and younger workers. Many of the jobs that cater to an aging population including health and home care, among our biggest needs arent highwage positions. Theres opportunity in this graying trend, and the county needs to fine-tune its strategy to grab the advantage for the future. Thirty-five years ago private investors set in motion what has become todays reality, when they carved retirement developments out of Citrus Countys countryside. Today, Citrus County can take the lead in building a community that supports a high quality of life for all ages. We have first-hand knowledge of the needs of an aging population, and a wealth of experience among retirees from an impressive range of industries and careers. Lets harness our strengths to frame decisions on future infrastructure, transportation, and services of all types, public and private. We must refine our model to leverage what we have for economic and cultural prosperity. Maybe someday well see another national story featuring Citrus County, but this time as a trailblazer in developing communities for the new demographic.

Government hypocrisyThis is a comment about the guest column from Scott Adams in todays Sunday paper (Sept. 14) regarding cronyism and favoritism. I think its very hypocritical that he would talk about cronyism and favoritism when one of his first official tasks that he got done in Citrus County was to siphon off garbage business to his own personal business at the expense of the taxpayers of Citrus County. Very hypocritical.Make do with what we haveIt irritates the heck out of me that you people insist that the animal shelter needs air conditioning. That is the biggest waste that I have ever heard of in my life. The Lord made animals to survive outside. They dont need air conditioning. People need air conditioning. Dont put your needs in front of what you think the animals need. Its a totally different thing there and it irritates the heck out of me that you want air conditioning in the animal shelter.

I am addressing its remarks regarding the frequent and seemingly exclusive lauding of Mr. Art Jones and his One Rake at a Time movement. Granted, the Rake movement has made some people more aware of the pestilence of Lyngbya plaguing our waterways. However, it is my opinion that the board would be wise to remember in its own words, the county has an engaged citizenry willing to fight and support numerous efforts to clean up its waterways. That citizenry existed long before Art Jones and his rakes appeared on the scene, to wit: The 1980s saw the husband and wife team of Hank and Miriam Cohen galvanize the county environmental community into protection mode as the population grew from 12,000 in 1965 to to 93,500 in 1990. Hank, dubbed the first environmentalist commissioner by theSt. Petersburg Times, in the county, was elected in 1986. Is he our last? Withlacoochee Area Residents Inc. was organized in 1984 in response to the condition of the lower river. It was also a leader in having the Florida Legislature designate the Withlacoochee River an Outstanding Florida Waterway. Dan Hilliard, a Florida native and one who remembers the water ways of his youth as abundant and clear, is a frequent Chronicleguest columnist, has been the public voice and face of WAR for more than a decade. TOOFAR Inc. has been a force since 1991, focusing its attention primarily on Tsala Apopka chain of lakes, which members view as having been seriously mistreated over the last 50 years. TOOFAR was also instrumental in stopping the proposed pipeline from Citrus County to Tampa in the mid-1990s Water Wars, and provided active support to the Local Sources First law. Marco Wilson, Al Grubman, and Larry Hartman, one of the original 1991 members, have been the leaders of this environmental group during the past two decades. The Homosassa River Alliance has led the fight on our west side for the protection and restoration of our Gulf coastal rivers, springs sheds and wetlands for years. Jim Bitter has been on the side of the environment for over four decades. He is not alone; Ron Miller and Priscilla Watkins come to mind quickly. Former chairman of the Citrus County Councils Environment & Natural Resources committee Gus Krayer, a retired engineer, devoted over two decades of his retirement to monitoring water issues and spearheading citizen education efforts. He and Morris Harvey, a past president of the CCC, were early advocates of the Save Our Waters Week shoreline clean up activities. Helen Spivey continues to work on the forefront of water quality issues in her beloved Nature Coast. Brad Rimbey, a leader in the Save Our Springs Alliance, is an articulate and erudite advocate of our springs ecosystems. Tracy Colson, a Florida native and kayak guide, heads up a new group, Kings Bay Springs Alliance, a local affiliate of Dr. Robert Knights Howard T. Odums Florida Springs Institute. There are more who have carried the banner of waterways protection and restoration that I have not mentioned, and for that I offer my sincere apology. Yes, we Citrus Countians are an engaged citizenry who love, value, and are willing to go to extraordinary lengths to protect, preserve and restore our surface waters, springs and springsheds. Its too bad that when it comes to local water concerns, the Chronicleseditorial board sees one rake.Theodora Teddi Rusnak Hernando Letter to THE EDITOR
GUADALAJARA, MEXICOBurned bodies found in congressmans SUVTwo charred bodies were discovered Tuesday inside a burned-out vehicle in which a congressman and his driver were kidnapped at gunpoint the previous day, Mexican authorities said. Zacatecas state prosecutor Arturo Nahle said DNA testing was being done on the remains to determine whether they belonged to Gabriel Gomez Michel, a member of the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, and his driver.MOGADISHU, SOMALIAKidnapped reporter freedA German-American journalist who was kidnapped in Somalia more than two years ago was freed Tuesday, according to a Somali police official and a leader of the Somali pirates who had held him. The journalist, identified by the German weekly Der Spiegel as 45-year-old Michael Scott Moore, was immediately flown to Kenyas capital, Nairobi, after being freed, Somali police official Mohamed Hassan said by phone from the town of Galkayo in north-central Somalia.UNITEDNATIONSCountries, companies pledge to end deforestationMore than 30 countries are setting the first-ever deadline to halt deforestation by 2030 to curb global warming. The United States, Canada and the entire European Union were among 32 countries signing on to a declaration to halve forest loss by 2020 and stop it by 2030 at the U.N. climate summit Tuesday. But the enthusiasm for the pledge was tempered when Brazil, home to wide swaths of Amazon rainforest, said it would not join. If the goal is met, the U.N. said it would be the equivalent of taking every car off the road in the world. Associated PressWASHINGTON The one-two-three punch of American and Arab airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq was just the beginning, President Barack Obama and other leaders declared Tuesday. They promised a sustained campaign showcasing a rare U.S.-Arab partnership aimed at Muslim extremists. At the same time, in fresh evidence of how the terrorist threat continues to expand and mutate, the U.S. on its own struck a new alQaida cell that the Pentagon said was nearing the execution phase of a direct attack on the U.S. or Europe. This is not Americas fight alone, Obama said of the military campaign against the Islamic State group. Were going to do whats necessary to take the fight to this terrorist group, for the security of the country and the region and for the entire world. Obama said the U.S. was proud to stand shoulder-toshoulder with Arab partners, and he called the roll: Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Bahrain and Qatar. Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagons press secretary, said four of the five had participated in the strikes, with Qatar playing a supporting role. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Turkey, too, is joining the coalition against the Islamic State group and will be very engaged on the front lines of this effort. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in New York for U.N. meetings, said he was considering expanding support of NATO operations against the Islamic State to include military involvement. In all, Kerry said, more than 50 nations are allied in the fight. Monday night, in three waves of attacks launched over four hours, the U.S. and its Arab partners made more than 200 airstrikes against roughly a dozen militant targets in Syria, including Islamic State headquarters, training camps and barracks as well as targets of the rival Nusra Front, al-Qaidas branch within Syria. The first wave, conducted by the U.S. alone, focused mostly on a shadowy network of al-Qaida veterans known as the Khorasan Group, Nation BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A14WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE World BRIEFS From wire reports Leaders say airstrikes are just the beginning Associated PressThousands of Syrian refugees, mostly tired and devastated, enter Turkey at Yumurtalik crossing gate on Tuesday.

US, Arab partnership promises sustained campaign against ISIS Officials warn Ebola could infect 1.4M Associated PressNEW YORK U.S. health officials Tuesday laid out worst-case and best-case scenarios for the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, warning that the number of infected people could explode to at least 1.4 million by mid-January or peak well below that, if efforts to control the outbreak are ramped up. The widely varying projections by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were based on conditions in late August and do not take into account a recent international surge in medical aid for the stricken region. That burst has given health authorities reason for some optimism. Im confident the most dire projections are not going to come to pass, CDC chief Dr. Tom Frieden said in releasing the report. About 5,800 illnesses and over 2,800 deaths have been counted since the first cases were reported six months ago. But international health authorities have warned that the crisis is probably far worse in reality, with many corpses and infected people hidden or unreported. The CDC, for example, estimated that the real number of cases, reported and unreported, could reach 21,000 by Sept. 30 in just two of the hardest-hit countries, Liberia and Sierra Leone. In its worst-case scenario, the CDC said the number of illnesses in those nations could hit 1.4 million by Jan. 20. But the CDC also said that the epidemic in both countries could be almost ended by Jan. 20, by aggressively isolating the sick, either in hospitals or at home, and by taking steps to reduce the spread of the disease during burials. 130 Ebola cases found in lockdownFREETOWN, Sierra Leone Health teams that went doorto-door in Sierra Leone found 130 confirmed cases of Ebola during a nationwide shutdown to slow the spread of the disease, an official said Tuesday, as authorities consider repeating the unprecedented exercise. About 70 more suspected cases are still being tested, said Deputy Minister for Political and Public Affairs Karamoh Kabba. In addition, 92 bodies were found during the three-day campaign, during which teams handed out information about the disease to more than 1 million households. It is not yet clear how many of those bodies were positive for Ebola. Associated PressPeople protest the governments lack of help to the public with the Ebola virus in their communities, outside the Liberian House of Representatives on Tuesday in Monrovia, Liberia. Pastor: UPS gunman was troubled over work Associated PressBIRMINGHAM, Ala. The man who killed two former coworkers and then himself at a UPS shipping center on Tuesday had told some people that he was having problems at work but never suggested the situation might turn violent, his pastor said. A law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to release the information, identified the shooter as Joe Tesney of suburban Trussville. Tesney and his wife have two children, and theyve been members at NorthPark Baptist Church since 2003, said the churchs pastor, Bill Wilks. Wilks described the 45-yearold Tesney as being troubled over his work and financial situation. UPS spokesman Steve Gaut would not say what Tesneys job duties had been before his firing was finalized Monday. Court records showed a Birmingham business sued Tesney and UPS in 2010 claiming he had wrongly picked up a $4,000 radiator for shipment either intentionally or by mistake. The lawsuit went on for years before a judge ruled in favor of Tesney and the shipping company exactly one year ago Sept. 23, 2013. BATONROUGE, LA. Louisiana: Where politics and kegs mix quite wellPhotos of Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu assisting a constituent as he drinks beer upside down from a keg inspired some finger-wagging on social media. But in party-centric Louisiana, its not necessarily a liability. Most of the criticism came from outside the state. Even Landrieus Republican opponents, including Rep. Bill Cassidy, arent making a big deal of it. And Landrieu herself said her critics need to get a sense of humor. The photos raced around social media after she campaigned Saturday at Louisiana State University before a football game. Landrieu helped a 28-yearold do a keg stand, holding the beer spigot so the man could drink upside down. Landrieu, who has been attacked for being out of touch with her state, is one of the most vulnerable Democrats this election year.CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA.

RISAK INVERNESS Not much has changed in the 12 days between the last meeting of these two 5A-6 rivals: Lecanto remained the dominant force in the district with a second three-set sweep of Citrus, this one by scores of 25-17, 25-15, 25-17 Tuesday at Citrus. About the only thing that did change was the location, with Lecanto the visiting team this time. It didnt bother the Pan thers much they still dominated at the net, their serves still seemed to confuse the Hurricanes, and they still took advan tage of the points presented to them by Citrus errors. Not that Lecanto was mistake-free. I told the girls my expectations, and we had too many errors, said Lecanto coach Alice Christian, her team now 7-2 overall, 4-0 in 5A-6. I told them if they want to go forward, we cant have those errors. I told them theyre playing good, but I know this team and they can do better. This match was different in that there were no prolonged rallies by Lecanto that buried Citrus. It was rather methodical, Europe on a Ryder Cup rollRays strike late in Boston BOSTON Ben Zobrist had three hits and drove in Tampa Bays first two runs during an eighth inning rally for the Rays in a 6-2 win over the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night. Alex Cobb pitched seven strong innings and Matt Joyce added a solo homer in the ninth for the Rays in the series opener between the bottom two teams in the AL East. Cobb (9-9) allowed just one run on five hits, striking out three and walking one. Daniel Nava had an RBI double in the fourth for the Red Sox. It stood as the games only run until Tampa Bay got to Boston starter Clay Buch holz in the eighth. Buchholz (8-10) had a shutout going through seven, but a leadoff walk and hit batter cost him in the eighth when the Rays rallied for five runs with two outs. Zobrist doubled with two on to drive in the first two runs and scored on a single by David DeJesus. Buchholz hit Evan Longoria with a pitch and was replaced by Tommy Layne, whose wild pitch allowed both runners to advance and score easily when James Loney added a single. All five runs went to Buchholz, who allowed eight hits over 7 2/3 innings. He struck out six and walked one.UP NEXTRays: RHP Jake Odorizzi (11-12, 3.98 ERA) al lowed just one run over six innings against the Yankees on Wednesday in his last start. GLENEAGLES, Scotland Paul McGinley is not trying to reinvent the wheel at the Ryder Cup. He just wants to keep Europe rolling. The European captain spoke in mysterious terms Tuesday about a template his team has followed toward dominance in these matches. He didnt offer many details, though the recent record should be all the evidence he needs. Even though the teams are evenly matched, the powerful Americans have won only twice in the last 21 years. I dont see myself as a maverick, McGinley said. I see myself as a guy who has been very lucky to ride shotgun on a lot of success, both as a player and vice captain. Ive learned a lot from the captains. This is not a time for me or Europe to have a maverick captain. Its a time for me to go in, identify the template, en hance it and try to make it better, roll it out again and hopefully you hand it over to the next captain. McGinley speaks from experience. The Irishman has played a part in five of the last six Ryder Cup matches, all of them European vic tories dating to 2002 when McGinley made his debut by holing the win ning putt at The Belfry. So whats the secret? Matt Kuchar, one of nine Ameri can players who have only posed with the prized trophy during team photos, doesnt think there is one. Asked whether too much is made of European dominance because all but two of those victories came down to the wire, Kuchar suggested it was a coincidence. I cant put my finger on anything, so that would be random, Kuchar said. Even more aggravating for the Americans is that they have won the majority of the five sessions the last two times. Why do they keep winning? I dont know yet, Zach Johnson said. Other than the fact that theyve played well and won the tourna ment, I cant answer.

NEW YORK Nelson Cruz hit his major league-leading 40th home run and the Baltimore Ori oles pushed Derek Jeter and the Yankees to the brink of playoff elimination, beating New York 5-4 Tuesday night. The Yankees fell five games be hind for the second AL wild card with only five games left. Jeter extended his hitting streak to seven games, but struck out on three pitches with a runner on first to end it. The retiring cap tain has two more home dates scheduled. The AL East champion Orioles began the day 2 1/2 games behind the Los Angeles Angels, who played later at Oakland, for the best record in the league and home-field advantage for the en tire postseason. Cruz boosted his career high with a drive into the left-field seats to open the fifth inning, giv ing him 107 RBIs. He became the sixth Baltimore player to post a 40-homer season, topped by Chris Davis 53 last year. AMERICAN LEAGUE Royals 7, Indians 1 CLEVELAND Rookie Yordano Ventura blanked Clevelands punch less offense for seven innings as the Kansas City Royals kept pressure on first-place Detroit in the AL Central with a 7-1 win over the Indians. The hard-throwing Ventura (14-10) allowed four singles and threw a 100 mph fastball on his 104th pitch. Salvador Perezs two-out, two-run double off Danny Salazar (6-8) put the Royals ahead 5-0 in the fifth and they turned their attention to the left-field scoreboard to monitor the Tigers score. Kansas City entered one game out of first and with a grasp on one of the leagues two wild-card spots. The Royals are closing in on their first postseason appearance since 1985, when they won their only World Series title. Blue Jays 10, Mariners 2 TORONTO Dalton Pompey hit his first major league homer and the Toronto Blue Jays roughed up Felix Hernandez for a career worst-tying eight earned runs in a 10-2 victory over the Mariners that further dented Seattles fading wild-card chances. Edwin Encarnacion added a tworun shot and R.A. Dickey (14-12) al lowed two runs over seven innings to win for the fourth time in five starts. Seattle lost its fourth straight thanks to another poor effort by a starting pitcher. Mariners starters have failed to complete five innings in any of the past four games, allowing 27 earned runs over 14 2/3 innings in that span for an ugly ERA of 16.56. The Mariners fell three games out of the second AL wild-card spot with five games remaining. Despite the win, Toronto was elimi nated from playoff contention when Kansas City beat Cleveland. Tigers 4, White Sox 3 DETROIT Miguel Cabreras RBI single in the bottom of the ninth lifted the Detroit Tigers to a key 4-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox. The win kept Detroit a game ahead of Kansas City atop the American League Central and dropped their magic numbers to five for the division and two for the postseason. Ian Kinsler started the bottom of the ninth by bouncing a single over Conor Gillaspies head at third, and Jake Pet ricka (1-6) walked Torii Hunter. Cabrera then lined a single to left, with Kinsler scoring from second. David Price took a three-hit shutout into the ninth. Adam Eaton singled, Alexei Ramirez doubled and Avisail Garcia hit a two-run single with one out. Paul Konerko singled with two out, moving Garcia to third and Mar cus Semien followed with an RBI single. NATIONAL LEAGUE Pirates 3, Braves 2 ATLANTA Gerrit Cole retired the final 17 hitters he faced, and the surg ing Pittsburgh Pirates clinched a spot in the playoffs with a 3-2 win over the free-falling Atlanta Braves. The Pirates win combined with Mil waukees loss to Cincinnati assured Pittsburgh of no worse than an NL wild card. The Pirates wrapped up their berth exactly one year after clinching a place in the 2013 playoffs. They reacted to the final out on Tuesday with little emotion. The Pi rates exchanged high-fives in a line on the field before sharing hugs in front of their dugout. Marlins 2, Phillies 0 MIAMI Henderson Alvarez pitched into the eighth inning to out duel Cole Hamels and the Miami Mar lins beat the Philadelphia Phillies 2-0. Alvarez (12-6) gave up five hits and struck out two over 7 2/3 innings to lower his ERA to 2.70. Jeff Baker and Casey McGehee had RBIs for the Marlins in the 2-hour, 20-minute contest. Hamels (9-8) allowed seven hits and two runs in seven innings. He struck out four and walked one. Alvarez issued a two-out walk to Carlos Ruiz in the top of the eighth in ning, ending his night after 97 pitches as he was replaced by left-hander Mike Dunn. After Chase Utley singled, Dunn struck out Ryan Howard with runners on first and second to end the inning. Reds 3, Brewers 1 CINCINNATI Johnny Cueto kept his hopes of a 20-win season in play, and Todd Frazier and Devin Mesoraco hit back-to-back homers, sending the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-1 victory that pushed the Milwaukee Brewers to the verge of elimination from wild card contention. Cueto (19-9) gave up Carlos Go mezs homer over eight innings. Hell pitch Cincinnatis final game on Sun day against Pittsburgh at Great Ameri can Ball Park. The Reds havent had a 20-game winner since left-hander Danny Jack son in 1988. The last Reds righthander to win 20 games was Sammy Ellis in 1965. Milwaukee led the NL Central for 150 days, but fell apart at the end. Up by 6 1/2 games on June 28, the Brew ers have gone 29-45 and fallen far be hind Pittsburgh and San Francisco in the wild card race. Nationals 4, Mets 2 WASHINGTON Nationals center fielder Denard Span left in the third in ning after making a diving, tumbling catch, and NL East champion Wash ington went on to a 4-2 victory over the New York Mets. The win boosted the Nationals push for home-field advantage during the National League playoffs. They began the day three games ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers for the leagues best record with less than a week left in the regular season. Span is a key player for the Nation als. A strong defensive presence and their leadoff hitter, he entered with the clubs highest batting average at .298 and most stolen bases with 31. The player who replaced him, rookie Michael Taylor, doubled home Washingtons first run in the fifth.

opening tee shot Friday, which sets off three days of relentless action. U.S. cap tain Tom Watson began to tip his hand with some of the groupings, such as Kuchar playing with 21-year-old Jordan Spieth, and Jim Furyk with Ryder Cup rookie Patrick Reed. McGinley sent his players out in threesomes, a sign that he has plenty of options to mix and match. Watson has not been at any Ryder Cup since 1993, when he was captain of the last U.S. team to win on European soil, though he was quick to point out that Ive been there every time watch ing intently on TV. It has looked like a horror show at times, especially two years ago at Medi nah when the Americans squandered a 10-6 lead on the last day. Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose and Ian Poulter won the last two holes for 1-up victories in three pivotal matches. From Watsons viewpoint in front of a television screen, thats why Europe keeps winning. They have been able to pull it out a little better at the end than we have. Thats what Ive seen, Watson said. They have pulled it out. I cant explain why. I have to give credit to the Europe ans. They have played better at the end. Told about McGinleys secret tem plate, Watson smiled and said, Can you tell me what his template is? The Europeans always have been able to rally around some cause. They were regarded as underdogs even when they were winning regularly. The Ryder Cup was a chance for them to show their tour should not be por trayed as a second-class citizen in the world of golf, even though most play ers are joint members of the PGA Tour. One year, the Europeans were put off by promotional chatter that the Nationwide Tour (now the Web.com Tour) was the second-best tour in golf. Now they go into this Ryder Cup as favorites, and that has only embold ened the Europeans. We believe in each other. Twelve becomes one, said Thomas Bjorn, on the European team for the first time in 12 years after three stints as a vice captain. And I think thats the impor tance of the European team, that we have a strong belief in each other. We stand by each other all the way through the week, and we have that camaraderie throughout the year thats done us good when weve come in here. We believe in having fun and keep ing it light, and we never underesti mate what were up against. They kept it light during practice. From the back end of the 18th green, Rory McIlroy putted down a ridge and up the other side to the front pin posi tion. Sergio Garcia pulled out his sand wedge to show him another way he clipped the ball perfectly so as not to remove a divot, the ball check ing up near the hole. McIlroy went down into a collection area and tried to chip between two golf bags to where Garcia was hitting. It was fun. It was light. Is that part of this template? McGinley only laughed when asked why Europe keeps winning. Theres a number of reasons, and obviously I cant go into those, Mc Ginley said. I have views. Im not privy to what goes on in the American team room. Im only privy to what goes on in the European team room. And Im really concerned about get ting that template right again this time. Its not about changing it. Its about doing what weve always done.

We had to scramble a lot today. The short game was pretty good. It was just a tough day. The Lecanto coach knew his team did not play its best. My three and four played about their average, Lecanto coach Scott Roberts said. My one and two did not have their best days getting up and down. I dont think we were getting up and down. The scores were a little higher today, Crystal River coach Jere DeFoor said. I attribute some of that to a few missed shots and some balls we couldnt find. We played on a wet course. Still, the Pirates remain undefeated as they march toward districts, at tempting to defend the title they won last year.

That slowly expanded to a 20-12 advan tage, thanks in part to three Annalee Garcia kills. The second set was similar, although this time Lecanto never trailed. Their 5-1 start to the set was stretched to 14-7 and then to 19-12 before Olivia Grey stepped behind the service line. She served five straight points for Lecanto, two coming on Citrus return errors, to make it 24-12. It wasnt all doom and gloom for this very young Citrus squad, with just two seniors and three players with note worthy varsity experience. Attitudes were better, I have to say (than in the first meeting), said Citrus coach Sandy VanDervort, her team slip ping to 3-7 overall, 1-3 in the district. But yeah, its the same stuff. Serve reception is killing us. It all starts with the pass, and thats just not coming. Its something we have to keep working on. Were sending over way too many free balls. The third set was similar to the second, with Lecanto taking a 5-1 lead and build ing it into a 17-9 cushion. Citrus commit ted six errors in that span; the Hurricanes would make four more to aid Lecanto in scoring its final eight points. Christian was pleased with her teams overall focus. They kept their head in the game, but I said they have to finish all the way through, you have to work until the job is done, Christian said. Just because youre up two sets doesnt mean youre done with the game. Theres that last one you have to finish on. So that was our big thing, you have to finish on that third set. DeeAnna Mohering paced Lecanto with three blocks and seven kills, with Morgan Christian contributing seven kills and six service aces and Grey get ting five kills. Shannon Fernandez col lected 17 assists, Garcia had six kills, 11 digs and three service aces, and Erin Smilgin totaled 15 digs. There werent too many statistical standouts for Citrus, with Jordan Josey getting five kills with just one error and Natalie Dodd collecting nine assists. Lecanto visits Weeki Wachee at 7:30 p.m. tonight before playing at the Fivay Classic Friday and Saturday, while Citrus hosts Nature Coast at 7 p.m. tonight. LECANTO Continued from Page B1 RYDER CUP Continued from Page B1 Pirates remain undefeated Advancing to 3-0, the Crystal River girls golf team defeated Citrus 220-222 on Tuesday at Lakeside Golf & Country Club. Camrin Kersh was medalist for the Hurricanes with a 46. Katelin Clardy was the leader for the Pirates, carding a 53.

Bucs OC Jeff Tedford taking indefinite leave TAMPA The Tampa Bay Bucca neers say offensive coordinator Jeff Ted ford is taking an indefinite leave from the team, which is off to an 0-3 start in his absence. The former University of California coach underwent an undisclosed medi cal procedure on Aug. 25. He has worked part-time since, leaving game-planning to the remainder of the offensive staff and play-calling to quarter backs coach Marcus Arroyo. The Bucs did not reveal the exact na ture of the surgery when it was per formed. Coach Lovie Smith has said the offensive coordinator is getting better while also reiterating theres no definitive timetable for his return. Tedford, 52, coached at Cal from 2002-12. Hes in his first season with the Bucs. A brief team statement Tuesday said the coaching staff will continue to work collectively to fulfill Tedfords duties. From staff and wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

Deadline for signing up is Oct. 2. District sets schedule for FCAT retakes Denise WillisGUEST COLUMN Back in July July 10, to be exact Sens. Tim Kaine (D-VA) and Rob Portman (R-Ohio) introduced S. 2584 to the 113th Congress of the United States. The bill, the Educating Tomorrows Workforce Act of 2014, amends the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006. I applaud Sens. Kaine and Portman on their initiative to strengthen the components of Career and Technical Education. Their bill would require a nonduplicative sequence of secondaryand postsecondary courses that incorporate rigorous standards and multiple exit points with portable demonstrations of technical competencies. At the secondary level, the bill supports career academies that implement a collegeand career-ready curriculum that integrates rigorous academic, technical and employability skills through Career and Technical Education programs. The bill also addresses credittransfer agreements and partnerships with business and industry. Valid and reliable technical skills assessments to measure student achievement, such as industryrecognized certifications that can be used for college credit, are also addressed. Our students realize the importance of an industry certification, as evidenced by our students earning 491 industry certifications last school year. Plus, our teachers hold the appropriate industry certification or license for the occupation they are teaching. This demonstration of their expertise in the occupation, along with the extensive professional development program we offer our teachers, makes WTI the school that it is. This bill addresses all the key ingredients that make up a successful Career and Technical Education program. There is no question that when this bill is passed it will bring all the parties Planning for the future of workforce education See WILLIS/ Page C3 MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleFirst-grader Samantha Grant, left, and second-grade student Stella Fink play on a climbing rock on the new playground at Saint John Paul II Catholic School in Lecanto. ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerLECANTOThe slate has been wiped clean and the school is alive.Citrus Countys only Catholic school, which survived a permanent shutdown six months ago, has made a 180-degree turn. We look at it as, Out of something that looks so despairing, something beautiful can happen, said Jennifer Hewitson, parent and volunteer marketing coordinator. When we thought the school was closing, we all banded together and focused on how we could grow. No one wanted to give up. With everyones help and support, we were able to pull it off. It is really like the rebirth of the school. The school faced its darkest days in March, when the Diocese of St. Petersburg said the school would close permanently due to low enrollment, costly capital needs, and a diocese subsidy that Bishop Robert Lynch said was too high. Lynch gave the school six weeks to deliver a proposed plan for continued operation, and the prayers of parents, students, administrators and teachers were answered.For the longest time, we were one of the bestkept secrets in Citrus County. Christopher Meyer, principal of Saint John Paul II Catholic School Saint John Paul II Catholic School making the most of its second chance at life Cross-country runners Drew Petrella, 10, Ian Holzer, 12, Matthew Hewitson, 11, and Rosario Briercheck make their way along the newly completed cross-country course at the Saint John Paul II Catholic School in Lecanto. See SCHOOL/ Page C2
That plan has really become our blueprint for moving the school forward, said Principal Christopher Meyer. Our vision is a solid Catholic education in a positive environment. For the longest time, we were one of the best-kept secrets in Citrus County. Students, staff, administrators, community members and leaders joined together to ensure Saint John Paul II Catholic School became an energized and vibrant school. And it was a success. What we did over the summer really helped show the community that we are serious about being here and moving our academic program forward, Meyers said. We are here to stay and we mean business. This year 165 students are enrolled, which includes 50 new students. Even though the school year has started, tours havent stopped, Hewitson said. We are getting more students and people are still inquiring about the school. A few of our classes are on a wait list because they are at capacity. Recently, Meyer and Hewitson met with a Chroniclereporter and highlighted the schools new additions:EARLY CHILDHOOD PROGRAMWe are at full capacity with our Early Childhood program, Meyers said. We are up 125 percent from last year. Plus we have a waiting list for our 3-year-old class. We always knew we had a great Early Childhood program, but now that we can offer VPK, it has taken us to the next level.CURRICULUMThe school has all-new textbooks. We have a new curriculum teachers are implementing through the state and the University of North Florida, Meyers said. We upgraded our math and reading materials to make us Florida Core-compatible. We have three sets of standards that we follow. CROSS-COUNTRY A mile-long cross-country trail was built through the woods next to the campus. Cross-country was more almost more like a club last year than a sport, as it wasnt really well-attended, Meyers said. We have so much land and really wanted to do something new to expand the program. We had a connection with Kerri Kitchen, who has a lot of experience as a crosscountry coach. We convinced her to come and help us start our program. She has also got some of the public schools to agree to come and compete against us. And then our league season is in January, so we will get to compete twice a year.UPGRADED CLASSROOMSOne of the things that we decided last year was to upgrade the facilities, Meyers said. The teachers predominantly wanted their rooms painted and new carpet. All of the classrooms were painted and carpeted over the summer. We were able to let the teachers decide what colors they wanted.MOMMY & MEWe have two groups of children aged 2, 3 and 4 who come in for one hour, said Mommy & Me coordinator Angela Fisher. We do a half an hour of activities around a book in the classroom and then we go outside to play. It is like a mini-classroom day so that they get the feel of school while they are still with their caregivers. DUKE TIPS PROGRAMIt is an opportunity for students who are strong academically to take extra classes and take the ACT/ SAT in seventh and eighth grade. These opportunities allow them extra prep for college admission, Meyers said. We became involved with that last summer. Eligibility requires that you score 95 percentile or higher on the National Standardized Achievement and Abilities Test (ITBS, or Iowa Test of Basic Skills). We had 21 percent of our students qualify. We are very excited for our children, as this gives them the opportunity to enhance their learning.IB PROGRAMThe school is starting the application process for the International Baccalaureate program. If the process is completed, Saint John Paul II Catholic School would be the first middle school in Citrus County to implement the IB program, according to Hewitson. Lecanto High School has an IB program. We are doing a self-study this year in hopes of bringing the IB program in to our middle school, Meyers said. COMPUTER CODINGWe start computer science in kindergarten, said Maciek Mierzwinski, technology teacher. You see those little kids putting their first line of code together on the computer. Thats very impressive.MAPA PROGRAMScience is the perfect vehicle for cross-curricular instruction, said Liz Parrow, MAPA (Middle School Advanced Program for Achieversin science) founder and instructor. Students are required to pay attention to detail while reading experimental procedure followed by an immediate check on comprehension and recall as the students attempt to carry out the instructions. Saint John Paul II recognizes that student reciprocal teaching is an effective learning tool, and therefore utilizes this method. It is a program which utilizes STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics education and uniquely rewards students who try to achieve more, both as a student and as a leader, she said. There is advanced instruction, but there are no tests. Students accepted into this program have the opportunity to think and act briefly as a physical therapist, veterinarian, paramedic, an astronaut, etc. Robotics students meet once a month ...as they program their Mindstorms Robots for competition day. Field trips engage students in astronomical and engineering challenges at Kennedy Space Center, making environmentally sound decisions as land developers at Animal Kingdom, CPR instruction at Nature Coast EMS and chemistry at Epcot, to name a few. Students use stethoscopes as part of a health science lesson and engage in a mock first-aid challenge at an airplane crash site. Students are broken up into teams and challenged to splint and secure an assigned fracture while following specific instructions. We try to take a student and their imagination beyond the scope of conventional education to the realm of what if.C2WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER24, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE EDUCATION 000J7J3 Nineteenth Annual Save Our Waters Week September 20-27 Florida Springs A Treasure in Jeopardy Friday, Sept. 19, 6 p.m. CITRUS 20/20, INC.

All across the nation, nominees like Jerry Swiatek are doing some pretty amazing things to educate our children often under very difficult circumstances. Students are not the only ones who need validation.

We are delighted to be part of this collaborative, nationwide effort. Honorees will be announced Sept. 27 at a red-carpet event in Washington, D.C. Swiatek recently learned of his nomination. Im fascinated by the opportunities that technology offers our teachers and students, Swiatek said. The ease with which we can connect our classrooms with experts and other classrooms around the world amazes me. Technology, when used properly, can transform what we are doing in our schools countywide. Its an honor to be recognized nationally but its more of an honor to have the chance to work with the fantastic educators and students of the Citrus County Schools.

Roald (ROO-arl) Dahl wrote some of the worlds most-loved childrens books, including Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Witches and The BFG. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, his most famous book of all, was published 50 years ago, in October 1964. Many of his books and stories have been made into movies and TV shows. He wrote for adults as well as for kids. He also wrote poems and pamphlets and co-wrote a cookbook that featured chocolate. He wrote movie screenplays based on two books by his war buddy Ian Fleming: the James Bond movie You Only Live Twice, and the family movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. To learn more about this author, The Mini Page talked with his daughter, Lucy Dahl.Early school After kindergarten, Roald went to a harsh all-boys school in Wales. At that time, teachers in Great Britain were allowed to punish kids by hitting them with a cane. This was called caning Roald liked to play pranks. One time, he and his friends put a dead mouse into a jar of candy at a shop because they were mad at the crabby owner. The head of the school, or the headmaster, caned him hard while the candy shop owner watched. When his mom saw the bruises covering his body, she was furious. She pulled him from the school as soon as that school term was done.Celebrate Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryMeet Roald Dahl Early childhood Roald was born Sept. 13, 1916, in Llandaff, Wales, the youngest of five kids. Two younger sisters were born later. His parents were from Norway. Roald had some hard times. When he was only 3, his 7-year-old sister, Astri, died from a burst appendix. A few weeks later, their father caught pneumonia and died. His mother then had to take care of six kids on her own. She decided to stay in Wales rather than return to her home in Norway. She had friends in Wales, and Roalds father had wanted the children to go to English schools. (Wales and England are both part of Great Britain.) jacket art 1998 by Quentin Blake, published by Puffin BooksIn Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, a poor boy finds a golden ticket inside a candy bar and wins a tour of a fantastic chocolate factory.

When he was a teenager, he got a type of cancer called acute myeloid leukemia. For a time, he had to be isolated in the hospital because his immune system was so weak. He said, Music played a very practical part in my treatment. It helped him keep his spirits up so he could heal. After he got well, he earned a college degree in songwriting. He began writing and singing and started a band of musical puppets. The profits from all of his CDs and DVDs go to charities helping children and cancer patients. He is now cancer-free.

When Eddie was a teenager, his familys home was destroyed by flooding in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. After moving several times, they eventually settled in a nearby town. Eddies football abilities later provided him with new opportunities. He attended the University of Alabama, helping the In his final appearance with the Crimson Tide, Lacy was in a victory over Notre Dame. Eddie was drafted by Green Bay that spring, and won the starting job in his first season. The Packers lost starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers to slack. He rushed for 1,178 yards and scored 11 touchdowns on his way to being named NFL Rookie of the Year by The Associated Press. TMEddie LacyGus Goodsports SupersportHeight: 5-11 Birthdate: 6-2-1990 Hometown: Gretna, Louisiana from The Mini Page 2014 Universal UclickBoarding school When he was 9, Roald had to go to boarding school, where the boys lived in dormitories away from home. Lucy Dahl said: My father hated boarding school because he loved his mother and sisters very much and missed them terribly. In addition, teachers there caned students for breaking small rules, such as talking during study hall.Dealing with bullies When he was 13, Roald went to an even rougher boarding school. The headmaster gave painful canings. Younger boys had to do anything the older boys told them to do, or the older boys would beat them. Roalds worst task was to warm up the toilet seat for an older boy. The bully made Roald go to the outhouse in the winter and sit on the toilet seat to warm it. Roald carried a book to read while sitting in the outhouse.The chocolate factory Roalds idea for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory sprang from treats sent to his boarding school. Every so often, a nearby chocolate factory, Cadbury, sent chocolate bars for the students to test. experimental chocolate bars, each with a separate filling. Cadbury asked the boys to rate each type of bar and write comments about each. Roald realized chocolate makers had actual inventing rooms. He daydreamed of working in one someday. Later, he turned those dreams into Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Roald never lost his love for chocolate. When I was growing up, as a family, we never ate dessert, Lucy said. Instead, we brought out the chocolate box. We always ate chocolate after lunch and supper. As it was a usual occurrence, we always just had a bite or two of whatever we felt like that day.The Good, the Bad, and the Icky Roald loved photography. At his last boarding school, the art teacher let Roald set up his own darkroom. He learned how to print his own pictures. Students did not have film at the time. They had to print from big glass negatives. Photographers could not shoot as many shots as they can today. The teacher put on an exhibit of student work that featured Roalds photos. Throughout his life, Roald won several prizes for his photos.photo RDNL from The Mini Page 2014 Universal UclickCasey: How are the letter F and a cows tail alike?

He transferred to the Shell office in East Africa in 1938 and learned to speak Swahili. When World War II began a year later, he joined the British Royal Air Force, or RAF. Lucy Dahl said: My father loved the years of the war. He always told us they were the most exciting years of his life. Unfortunately, a year later, when Libya. He suffered serious injuries. Career changes After his recovery, the RAF posted Roald to the British Embassy in Washington, D.C., as assistant air attache (a-tah-SHAY) or specialist. He began writing about his war experiences. He wrote his first childrens book, The Gremlins.* Walt Disney once thought of making it into a movie.*Gremlins were legendary creatures RAF pilots blamed for mechanical failures.Bedtime stories Roald always made up bedtime stories for his kids, Lucy said. Every night we would get The BFG. This was before it was a book. Our BFG lived under a tree in our apple orchard and would blow dreams into our room every night. Therefore, whatever the weather, rain or snow, we always slept with our bedroom window open a crack. Within 10 minutes of our story ending, and lights out, a long bamboo (pole) would stick through the window and we would hear two loud puffs of dreams being blown into our room by our BFG. Their dad climbed a ladder to blow dreams through their upstairs window, just as the Big Friendly Giant might have done. I loved The BFG, as it was my childhood bedtime story, Lucy said. But I also love Fantastic Mr. Fox, as the Fox Tree was at the top of our orchard. It was fun to climb, knowing that the fox family were below.An Amazing LifeFamily joys and sorrows In 1951, Roald met his future wife, American actress Patricia Neal. They raised their kids, Olivia, Chantal (called Tessa), Theo, Ophelia and Lucy in Great Missenden, England. When Theo was only 4 months old, a taxi hit his baby carriage and he was seriously injured. Fluid built up inside his brain. Roald, an engineer friend and Theos surgeon invented a special valve to release the brain fluid. Theo recovered before the valve was built, but it later helped save thousands of childrens lives. None of the inventors took profits from the valve. When she was only 7, Olivia died from complications from measles. In 1965, Patricia suffered a series of strokes. Roald worked with her for months, helping her recover. In 1983, he and Patricia divorced. He married Felicity Crosland. After his death, Felicity set up Roald Dahls Marvellous Childrens Charity to help seriously ill children.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER24, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.We are looking at choosing between two fits, one balanced, in which the partners each have the same number of cards in that suit, and one unbalanced, in which one partner holds more cards than his partner. In general, the balanced suit will make the better trump choice. But what happens in a game-going deal when that is in a minor and the unbalanced is in a major? Then usually you select the major-suit fit because you need one fewer trick to collect the game bonus. In this deal, when North responded two hearts, a transfer bid showing at least five spades and any point-count, South might have rebid three spades, a superaccept, to indicate a good hand with four-card spade support and a doubleton somewhere. Then, when North rebid a natural and game-forcing three clubs, South was in a quandary. If North was thinking about a slam, clubs rated to be the better trump suit. But if North was not that ambitious, four spades would probably be preferable. Note that five clubs would have gone down two in jig time after East led the heart queen. Against four spades, West, with an unenviable lead, chose a trump. Declarer won, drew trumps, cashed all of the clubs ending in the dummy, and played a diamond. West took that trick and led his second diamond winner. What did South do? He calmly discarded a heart from the dummy, leaving West endplayed to open up hearts or concede a ruff-and-sluff.

But what happens in counseling? Can you explain how it helps? L. Dear L.: The point of counseling or therapy is to help you determine what it is you want to accomplish and how to get there. This could be a career goal, a marital dispute, a problem with family members or anything that is causing difficulty for you and that you cannot resolve on your own. A good counselor/therapist will help you set appropriate goals and work with you to achieve them. Counselors (e.g., psychologists, licensed social workers) are generally well trained and licensed. Therapists (e.g., psychiatrists and psychoanalysts) usually have additional training and can prescribe medication. When choosing someone to see, we recommend getting a referral through your physician, a friend or relative, or an accredited licensing association such as the American Psychiatric Assn. (psych.org), the American Psychological Assn. (apa.org) or the National Association of Social Workers (socialworkers.org). It may help to find one who specializes in your particular problem. Not all counselors will be a good match, and it may require a session or two before you decide whether you are comfortable with this person or need to find someone else. When you first see the counselor/therapist, you may be asked what you wish to accomplish or what you want to work on. Some problems can be resolved in a few sessions, but more complicated ones can take longer. It is important that you be totally honest with the counselor, as anything else is a waste of your time and money. And if the counselor makes suggestions, do the work. Nothing will change if you dont make the effort. Dear Annie: Our daughter is getting married soon. We have paid for all the usual services at a wedding, but we have a question about the photographer and the disc jockey. Both of these people own their businesses. These owners will be the ones providing the services at the wedding, with no other employees present. Some people say we should tip them for their time and services. We feel that since they own their businesses, their profit includes their tip. Right or wrong? To Tip or Not To Tip Dear Tip: You do not need to tip the owners of the photography studio or the disc jockey who is self-employed. They dont expect to be tipped. However, should they go above and beyond what you hired them for, you may wish to add a gratuity as a way of saying thanks. Dear Annie: The letter from Very Blessed, But Hurt expressed bewilderment that she was not named in her mother-in-laws will, despite she and her mother-in-law having a close and wonderful relationship. Im a retired lawyer who wrote many wills over the years. I hope this dear lady listens to your advice that she should not feel slighted. Her mother-in-laws will sounds pretty standard to me. The testatrix leaves her estate to her son and, should her son not survive her, then to the sons children. Most wills that I wrote went along those same lines. Perhaps Blessed herself comes from a family in which testators name everyone they love, but my own experience is that such a tradition would be far from the norm. Many people, when planning the disposal of their estates, work hard not to let emotions impinge on what they view as a simple business transaction, and they bequeath scrupulously equal amounts to both the faithful, favorite child and the black sheep who disowned the family decades ago.
