Officers say surveillance video from a northern New Mexico police station captured a strange image a ghost. KOAT-TV reported Espanola police officer Karl Romero said he saw a phantom-like being this past Saturday move across a screen that was monitoring a fortified sally port. According to the surveillance video, a blurry bright, white figure is seen walking across the secured area at night. Romero said he immediately reported the sighting to his supervisors, who did not find anyone near the gate. Police said there is no way in or out of the secured area without the gates opening and an alarm sounding. From staff and wire reports Cents for gas For example: Gas taxes were never meant for residential road resurfacing, despite public belief otherwise. The county collects about $7.4 million annually in gas tax revenue. Even though county officials give the impression revenue is dropping significantly, its stayed fairly steady. About half of 1,600 miles of residential roads are ready for resurfacing today. One-third, though, are in fine shape. Most of the worst residential roads are in Citrus Springs, where the developer built roads with an inferior cement base. Resurfacing costs about $100,000 a mile; higher if the road is in poorer shape. Gas taxes also fund road maintenance, including pothole repairs, intersection improvements, mowing, culvert replacements and striping. $2.2 million a year pays for two C.R. 486 bonds. $7 million is set aside for the C.R. 491 project. The county expects to borrow $18 million for C.R. 491 widening (total cost of the project estimated at $43 million); the annual payment would be $1.45 million. So, with that, here are common questions and answers about the gas tax, how its spent, why there isnt enough for residential road resurfacing, and how the Cent for Citrus sales tax would work. Q: Where does my gas tax money go? A: Heres a long answer to a short question: Bonding for projects, such as the C.R. 486 widening; bridge repair; road resurfacing; local match for state-funded road projects; traffic signals; intersection improvements; road maintenance; and drainage. Q: How much gas tax is collected for Citrus County? A: 15 cents per gallon for motor fuel; 7 cents per gallon for diesel fuel. Of that, amount, 12 cents are controlled directly by the county; the other 3 cents MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle fileMuch of the gasoline tax revenue collected in Citrus County goes toward big projects, such as widening County Road 486. The county pays $2.2 million annually for debt on the $8.5 million widening project. A referendum is on the November ballot for a new tax to pay for residential road resurfacing. BRIAN LaPETER/Chronicle fileThe Ottawa-to-Quartz connector project in Citrus Hills cost $3.6 million, including $2.9 million to buy the roadway. The money came from gasoline tax revenue. MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerConfused about the countys referendum to pay for residential road resurfacing? So were we, so we asked. Through public records and interviews with acting County Administrator Jeff Rogers, we learned quite a bit. ABOUT THE GAS TAXFifteen cents per gallon of motor fuel and 7 cents per gallon of diesel fuel is used for county roads. Heres what each tax category means, as the government refers to them: First local option: Countywide tax of 6 cents per gallon for motor and diesel fuels. County gets 91 percent of revenue; Crystal River and Inverness split 9 percent. Second local option: Countywide tax of 5 cents per gallon for motor fuel. Took effect January 2006. County gets 91 percent of revenue; Crystal River and Inverness split 9 percent. Ninth cent: countywide tax of 1 cent per gallon for motor fuel and diesel fuels. Took effect January 2006, not sure why its a 9th cent when there is no 8th cent. Fifth and 6th cent: Referred to as the Constitutional Fuel Tax, its 2 cents for motor fuel. Set by the state, used for debt service on road and bridge projects. 20 percent of remaining goes back to county for buy, build or maintain roads. Could also be used for matching grants. Approved by voters in 1943, part of the state constitution. Seventh cent: Referred to as County Fuel Tax, though it is set by the state, its 1 cent for motor fuel only. Intended to reduce reliance on property taxes. Source: Citrus County Department of Management and Budget. See TAX / Page A2

are state taxes that in some form are returned to the county. Q: How much is set aside for resurfacing of roads in my neighborhood? A: That amount varies from year to year. This year its $1 million. Some years its been between $2 million and $3 million. Q: I thought when the county commission added 6 cents to the gas tax in 2006 that money was supposed to go for residential road resurfacing. A: We thought so, too, but the public record doesnt bear that out. Minutes of board meetings show that the county commissioners express idea was to use the revenue to borrow money for major road construction projects. Q: Did that happen? A: Yes, especially for the C.R. 486 widening project. The county has two bonds that require annual payments of about $2.2 million. The county also plans to borrow $18 million for the C.R. 491 widening project, at an annual repayment of $1.45 million. Q: Are all road projects bonded? A: Major road projects are bonded when they get to the construction stage. County records also show gas tax payments for projects such as intersection improvements on Croft Avenue and C.R. 486, buying property for an eventual Croft Avenue widening; drainage projects; and the Ottawa Avenue-Otis Avenue connector. The county paid cash for those projects. Q: Is the county still resurfacing residential roads? A: No. That stopped in November 2012 during the Duke Energy tax crisis. When Duke refused to pay its full tax bill, the county found itself with an immediate $8 million shortfall. One of the measures it took to reduce that deficit was to move $1.7 million from road resurfacing into the road maintenance fund, which saved that same amount in property taxes. Q: Theres been no road resurfacing since then? A: Yes, there has, but not on local roads. The county spent $80,000 in a cooperative effort with the city of Inverness to resurface North Apopka Avenue as part of a bicycle trail project, and spent $142,535 resurfacing roads in Crystal River neighborhoods that were damaged by installation of sewer lines. Q: How were roads resurfaced in the past? A: Complaint-driven, primarily. Residents called to complain about the condition of their roads. The county sent an inspector to make sure that (a) its a public road and (b) the roads condition was deficient to the point that it needed resurfacing. Each year the county ranked roads based on need and the amount budgeted for resurfacing. Q: The Cent for Citrus plan says all roads in the county will be resurfaced in 20 years. Is that really necessary? A: The county believes so. Of about 1,600 miles of neighborhood county roads, roughly 56 percent are in need of resurfacing today, according to county inspectors. Another 8 percent are in critical condition. Officials believe allowing roads to continue to deteriorate only increases the cost of repaving them later. Q: Where are most of the poor roads? A: Citrus Springs, where the developer built roads with an inferior cement base. Nearly all of the roads in critical condition are in Citrus Springs. Q: Doesnt the Citrus Springs MSBU pay for fixing those roads? A: The Citrus Springs MSBU would allocate about $300,000 to $400,000 annually to the countys public works department to contract for the resurfacing of roads in their community, so actually many of the poorly built roads have been repaired to county standards. When the county stopped residential road resurfacing in 2012, the Citrus Springs MSBU stopped contracting for projects in that community. Q: If the sales tax passes, how will the county prioritize resurfacing roads? A: That hasnt been finalized yet, but Rogers believes it should be worst to first, meaning roads in the 8 percent considered critical receive first consideration even if no one lives on those roads, which is the case in several Citrus Springs areas. Q: How does the county know which roads are worse than others? A: When the county commission first started talk a year ago of finding alternative ways to pay for road resurfacing, it sent inspectors out to every neighborhood road to rate it. Q: How can I find out where my street rates? A: Go to the countys web site, www.bocc.citrus.fl.us, and click on the Cent for Citrus link. Then click on the map and look for your street. Q: I live on a dirt road that needs paving. Will the sales tax pay for that too? A: Its important to note that this program is only for county roads that are accepted for perpetual maintenance. People who live on private roads or public roads not accepted for maintenance would still need to pay for road paving or resurfacing through special assessments or MSBU. Q: The county says that gas tax revenue is falling. Is that the case? A: Not according to the countys figures. Gas tax revenue has fallen slightly since 2007, when revenue was $8 million. Last fiscal year (Oct. 1 to Sept. 30) the county collected $7.5 million, and its projected to collect about the same this year. However, officials say gas tax revenue hasnt kept up with population increases during that same period. Q: What happens if the sales tax doesnt pass? Will roads never be resurfaced again? A: Thats the big unknown.

Special to the ChronicleThe Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FREC) is currently reviewing comments and concerns expressed by the public and other sources about a proposed multi-billion dollar, 650-mile natural gas pipeline project that would cut through Sumter County in its projected route from Alabama to Orlando. The Sabal Trail Project is currently under review by the FREC, the lead federal agency for conducting the environmental review of the project. The agency is planning to prepare an environmental impact statement about the proposed project. Since the public meetings earlier this year, FREC has received more than 250 comment letters about the proposed pipeline. Additionally, about 200 individual comments at 13 public meetings about the project are being considered. With the company expected to submit an application for the project next month, it is likely to take another year to 18 months before the commission would vote on it. After they apply, there will be more opportunities for more public comments, said Tamara YoungAllen, FREC spokesperson. This is still very early in the process. Earlier this year, the developer of the gas pipeline met with Sumter residents to discuss proposed changes in the 36-inch pipeline project. It was the third proposed route that Sabal Trail representatives had displayed during a series of open house meetings in the county. While other routes would take the pipeline along a southeasterly path west of Lake Panasoffkee, much of the Gum Slough Alternative presented at that meeting passes between the lake and the Wildwood area. Most of the route is adjacent to an existing high-capacity electric transmission line. The latest changes would take the pipeline away from more populated areas, but still has potential impacts for a number of rural residents. In particular the south west portions of the Royal Community along County Road 231, the northern portions of the Wildwood Ranch community and some areas along County Road 702 near the Lake County line appear to potentially be effected. From staff reports Plans for Sabal Trail pipeline under review PATFAHERTY Staff writerThe upcoming Lake Hernando Dragon Boat Festival has added Friday evening activities. The second festival of 2014 is scheduled for Nov. 14 and 15 with a full day of dragon boat racing and related activities. There will be a large kick-off concert on the lake on Friday, Nov. 14, said Andy Smith event coordinator. It will be a free concert open to the public. He said event features are the band, 4 PLAY, a cash bar and an optional Italian diner. The activities on Friday will run from 5 to 9 p.m. There will be an Italian dinner available between 6 and 7:30 p.m. for anyone who is interested, $10 for adults, $7 for children. Race entry registration is still open, along with opportunities for sponsors, commercial and nonprofit vendors as well as artists and crafters. We are still looking for teams to participate, he said. Anyone can form an 11or 21-person team. Large teams will race the standard boats with 20 paddlers and a drummer, while the smaller teams race the mini boats with 10 paddlers and a drummer. Interested individuals can also be placed on a team. Smith shared the experience of Lynda Occhiuzzo, one of the team captains at the last race for the Hunt Club team from Terra Vista. She recalled hearing about the dragon boat races last February and helping organize a community team for the March race. That event attracted 40 race teams, and this time, event coordinator Andy Smith is hoping for 55 entries. The Hunt Club Rowing Thunder Dragon Boat team members were truly amazing, she said. The majority of team members had never participated in a Dragon Boat Race. But what this team lacked in experience, they more than compensated with their tremendous enthusiasm and esprit de corps. After a shaky practice session on the water, the team held an additional dry practice session to try and master the sport. Overall, the Hunt Club team finished second its division and placed first in the costume contest. On Saturday, in addition to the races, the Chamber of Commerce sponsored festival will include a kids zone, food area, beer and wine, expanded arts and crafts area and entertainment throughout the day. There is no admission charge, but a $3 donation is requested for parking. Event charities are Feeding America Tampa Bay and Community Food Bank of Citrus County.

Dragon Boat Festival adds more events Special to the ChronicleOrganizers have added a free kick-off concert to the list of activities slated for the upcoming Lake Hernando Dragon Boat festival. LARRYBUGG CorrespondentINVERNESSIt was a special day for Citrus County Sheriff Jeff Dawsy. Saturday, it was like the 58year-old chief law enforcement officer was grinning and celebrating a victorious election, a birthday and Christmas all in one. Actually, it was the 18th annual Beat the Sheriff 5K Race. There were 376 participants and about $10,000was raised for Jessies Place, a child advocacy center. The center is dear to Dawsy, as it memorializes Jessica Lunsford, a 9-year-old Homosassa girl who was slain in 2005. Ninety-four people managed to beat the sheriff, but the fit 58-year-old, however, ran a 26:05 and said he plans to run a marathon when he is 60. Im very happy, Dawsy said. I didnt hurt myself. It (the race) started with me. I have two more. The last one I am going to run with my grandson. This is the most important thing I do and the sheriffs office does. Were involved with kids that are abused. We have over 500 a year in our county that are sexually, physically and mentally abused. All the money we raise goes to that (Jessies Place). We thank you so much for the citizens. This is the longest road race in Citrus County. Rachel Warner was the lead person. She coordinated and did a great job. We look forward to it next year. Its one of the highlights of my year. It was a joyous occasion for others, also. Joel Rich, 45, came here from Gainesville, winning with a time of 18:21. Rich took second last year, and said he likes beating the sheriff. It was a little humid, but not bad, Rich said. As the years go by, Im just enjoying it. Nice course. Caleb Russo, 15, prepared for the race by staying up late at the Crystal River High homecoming dance and tumbling out of bed to run an 18:45 and take second place. Russo is the top runner on the Crystal River High boys cross country team. Inverness resident Cindy Carver was the top female and was third overall with an 18:57. She beat a number of teenage girls to take third. Citrus High senior Alyssa Weber, a three-time state competitor, was 14th with a time of 20:48. It may be her final Beat the Sheriff, as she wants to find some snow when she goes off to college in 2015. It feels good (to beat the sheriff), Weber said. I love this race. It has plenty of hills to keep me going. It was a good time. I hope so (going up north to college). Running in snow. Crystal River High business teacher Laura Wingate loved zipping past Dawsy. She finished 73rd with a time of 25:17. I beat the sheriff! she yelled. I did it, and thats what I came to do. Crystal River High cross country runner Marin Williams, 17, said that running with the sheriff helped her get her personal best. I did beat the Sheriff, she said. I was pretty excited. I am a senior. It makes me feel better. It was a race for both the young and the young at heart. Five-year-old Kayli Schaak of Beverly Hills was the youngest competitor. The oldest was Augie Jackson, 86, of Inverness. I walked, Jackson said. I have done all the races. I love to race. I like the fact that it supports a good cause.2014 Beat the Sheriff resultsMale Overall Winner: Joel Rich, Gainesville 18:21 Female Overall Winner: Cindy Carver, Inverness 18:57 1.

TodaysHOROSCOPES Today is Sunday, Sept. 28, the 271st day of 2014. There are 94 days left in the year. Todays Highlight in History: On Sept. 28, 1787, the Congress of the Confederation voted to send the just-completed Constitution of the United States to state legislatures for their approval. On this date: In 1066, William the Conqueror invaded England to claim the English throne. In 1542, Portuguese navigator Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo arrived at present-day San Diego. In 1850, flogging was abolished as a form of punishment in the U.S. Navy. In 1939, during World War II, Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union signed a treaty calling for the partitioning of Poland, which the two countries had invaded. In 1994, an Estonian ferry capsized and sank in the Baltic Sea with the loss of 852 lives. Ten years ago: An earthquake measuring magnitude 6.0 rocked central California. Five years ago: Iran tested its longest-range missiles and warned they could reach any place that threatened the country, including Israel, parts of Europe and U.S. military bases in the Mideast. Todays Birthdays: Actress Brigitte Bardot is 80. Rock musician George Lynch is 60. Actress Mira Sorvino is 47. TV personality Moon Zappa is 47. Actress Naomi Watts is 46. Country singer Karen Fairchild (Little Big Town) is 45. Rapper Young Jeezy is 37. World Golf Hall of Famer Se Ri Pak is 37. Actress Hilary Duff is 27. Thought for Today: To fight oppression, and to work as best we can for a sane organization of society, we do not have to abandon the state of mind of freedom. If we do that we are letting the same thuggery in by the back door that we are fighting off in front of the house.

Clooneys water taxi was the last of a procession of a dozen that brought guests including Cindy Crawford, her husband Randy Gerber, Bill Murray and Matt Damon from the five-star Cipriani hotel opposite St. Marks Square up the Grand Canal to the luxury Aman Hotel. Crawford wore a purple floor-length halter dress; the men were all dressed in tuxedos. The star maintained his everrelaxed demeanor and waved to hundreds of people who crowded the arched Accademia bridge, canal banks and passing water taxis to see the Hollywood star before he took the plunge he long vowed never to take. There were no signs of his bride, human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, who was last seen publicly on Friday riding a watertaxi down the Grand Canal with Clooneys arm resting comfortably around her. The bride, wearing a bold black-and-white striped Dolce & Gabbana dress, beamed. Clooney, 53, and Alamuddin, 36, who were engaged in April, have not publicly divulged details of the weekend-long celebrations. Clooney had long vowed he would never marry again following his 1989-93 marriage to Talia Balsam He dated a series of models and actresses that made his love life tabloid fodder, until meeting his match in Alamuddin.BTKs daughter breaks silence to criticize KingWICHITA, Kan. The daughter of the BTK serial killer has criticized Stephen King for writing a screenplay partly inspired by the Wichita, Kansas, case in the first public comments from a member of Dennis Raders family since his 2005 conviction. Hes exploiting my fathers 10 victims and their families, Kerri Rawson told the Wichita Eagle for a story published Friday. Rawson said that Kings upcoming movie, A Good Marriage, prompted her to break a selfimposed nine-year silence. She sent letters to King and local media outlets, saying that her family also feels exploited and that King should not profit from the grief her father caused. King has said in media interviews that the movie adapted from one of his short stories about a wife who suddenly discovers her husband is a serial killer was inspired by Rader and his family. A Good Marriage is a story in the collection Full Dark, No Stars. King said Friday in an emailed statement to The Associated Press that he doesnt think Raders daughter has to worry about her father being flattered by his portrayal in the film as a banal little man. He said that and none of the murders are shown and that the independently financed film is not expected to bring huge returns. The story isnt really about the killer husband, he added, but about the mans brave and determined wife. I maintain that the theme of both the novella and the movie how some men are able to keep secrets from even their closest loved ones is valid and deserves exploration, he said. Rader was arrested in February 2005 and confessed to 10 killings in the Wichita area between 1974 and 1991. He called himself BTK, which stood for bind, torture, kill. Rawson told the newspaper that her family didnt know that her father was BTK until the Federal Bureau of Investigation told her in February 2005, shortly after his arrest. Her mother wouldnt have raised her and her brother with Rader had she known, she said.

National Estuary Day celebratedERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Anyone who wants to know about animals that call the estuary home needs to ask 6-year-old Jack Suter. He and his sister Paige Suter, 8, spent Saturday afternoon playing with fish, sea creatures and even a king snake at the second annual National Estuaries Day celebration. They had a good time, said Brian Suter, Jack and Paiges dad. They got to pet fish, play with sea urchins and climbed the tower at the science station. We tried to climb it twice and got rained on both times. It was a very educational time. Florida Coastal Offices St. Martins Marsh Aquatic Preserve partnered with the Citrus County School Districts Marine Science Station to bring awareness and education to the public about the areas aquatic preserve. St. Martins Marsh Aquatic Preserve is one of the 41 aquatic preserves in the state. St. Martins ranges from the Homosassa River at its south and is bordered by the Crystal River to the north. The public in general is not aware that when they are out there, they are in the aquatic preserve, said Jamie Letendre, environmental specialist. Its an area that we cant have signs announcing it. But it is public land. It is used for fishing, scalloping, the whole nine yards. It is a very productive ecosystem. Being that it is an estuary, approximately 70 percent of all commercial and recreational species in the marine industry come and use the sea grass beds some point in their life. To demonstrate the aquatic preserve and highlight the estuary, boat rides were given from the Marine Science Station. Once guests arrived, they explored the grounds and had an opportunity to climb the tower for a birds-eye view of the expansive estuary system. National Estuaries Day is a big deal for local ecosystems, being that we are a coastal community, Letendre said. We partnered with the Marine Science Station so that they have the opportunity to do an open house as well. Seven vendors joined the efforts of public awareness and celebration of National Estuaries Day. The take-home message for National Estuaries Day is awareness and the importance of the resource, Letendre said. The estuary is the nursery of the sea. Its that brackish water where the river meets the sea where a lot of organisms use the area for a nursery. We need to get the education out there.

Associated PressCLEVELAND James Traficant, the colorful Ohio politician whose conviction for taking bribes and kickbacks made him only the second person to be expelled from Congress since the Civil War, died Saturday. He was 73. Traficant was seriously injured Tuesday after a vintage tractor flipped over on him as he tried to park it inside a barn on the family farm near Youngstown. He died four days later in a Youngstown hospital, said Dave Betras, chairman of the Mahoning County Democratic Party. The Democrats expulsion from Congress in 2002 came three months after a federal jury in Cleveland convicted him. Prosecutors said he used his office to extract bribes from businesspeople and coerced staffers to work on his farm and his house boat on the Potomac River in Washington. He also was charged with witness tampering, destroying evidence and filing false tax returns. He spent seven years in prison. Traficants notoriety was rivaled only by his eccentricity. He loved to play the buffoon during his 17 years in Congress. He got plenty of notice within the staid, buttoned-down Capitol and airtime on CSPAN for his messy mop of hair revealed to be a wig when he went to prison his typical wardrobe of cowboy boots, denim or polyester suits, and his bombastic speaking style. His made-for-TV rants on the House floor invariably ended with the signoff Beam me up, which Traficant borrowed from Star Trek to show his disgust or bemusement at whatever he found particularly outrageous. Traficant was born May 8, 1941, in Youngstown and was a quarterback for the University of Pittsburgh, where he played with future NFL coaches Mike Ditka and Marty Schottenheimer. He worked as a drug counselor for 10 years before running for Mahoning County sheriff at a colleagues suggestion. He endeared himself to voters in the early 1980s by defying the courts and going to jail for three nights rather than foreclose on the homes of workers laid off from the citys dying steel industry.

Instead of catching up on reading or connecting with caffeine the two strap on their jumping stilts and bound around campus. Theyre a lot of fun, Odom said. Its a great way to interact, have fun, get people smiling. In addition to walking, running, skipping and jumping, the two friends often toss a flying disc across the courtyard of NWF States main campus in Niceville. So was it like, OK, stilts are cool, how do I one-up that? fellow student Joe Wilmoth said as he passed them in the courtyard. The freshman said since he first spotted them on the stilts, he sees them everywhere on them, but enjoys it. In general, people arent shy when they notice the two. Some openly take pictures of Odom and Fife, others try to be subtle about it. Either way, the two are happy. The SWIFF Brothers, as they call themselves, arent just wearing the stilts for fun. Theyre also hoping to start a positive trend with their generation with the SWIFF acronym: sobriety, wisdom, integrity, faith and focus. They already have Tshirts and encourage students to say SWIFF in place of words like awesome or cool. Weve got a lot of interest, Fife said. Weve got 30 to 40 people saying it. Theyve established a Facebook pageand will bring their message, and stilts, out into the community. Hopefully the younger generation will see that and take that on, Fife said. And (have) those codes sobriety, wisdom, integrity, faith, focus and use it in their everyday life. Associate PressNathan Fife visits with some fellow students Wednesday as he walks on stilts through the campus of Northwest Florida State College in Niceville. Fife and fellow student Zac Odom are using stilts as an attention-getter to promote their message of SWIFF sobriety, wisdom, integrity, faith and focus to other students. Chronicle

Tired and hungry, the firefighters head to the kitchen to chow down on shrimp tacos cooked up by colleagues. But dinner has to wait. The stations alarm system blares. The crew members some of whom still are chewing abandon their plates on the table and quickly slide down a nearby pole before making their way to their truck. While dinnertime may sound a little chaotic, thats life for the firefighters and paramedics of the firehouse, which was recently ranked as the busiest station in the nation by Firehouse Magazine. Last year, Station 2s seven units two engines, two rescue trucks, a ladder truck and two vehicles for chiefs responded to more than 25,000 calls, ranking it above Los Angeles at No.2 and Baltimore at No.3. You have to be ready for anything, said Lt. Mike Hicks, who is assigned to Engine8, which is the 10th busiest engine in the nation. You get used to it. It being interruptions. Thats the nature of the business, Hicks said. The 24-hour shift starts at 8 a.m. when everyone is given their assignments for the day. Bags are dropped in the dorms on the second floor of Station 2, 528 NW Second St., and the waiting begins. Station 2 is in densely populated downtown Fort Lauderdale. Units are sent to scenes based on location and circumstance. If there is a high-rise fire, the ladder truck is often dispatched. Fort Lauderdale is just a very busy city as a whole, said Deputy Fire Chief Timothy Heiser. A lot of people come into the city during the day. With a $78 million budget, Fort Lauderdales Fire Department has 11 stations and about 455 employees, including ocean rescue. About 15 firefighters and paramedics are assigned to each of the three shifts at Station 2. The annual survey is compiled by New YorkBased Firehouse Magazine. In January, departments are asked to fill out a form with their busiest station. This year about 250 departments responded. The idea is to give people a better feel for where they stand, said Kevin Roche, who compiled the results. Its also a little about bragging rights. On this particular day at Station 2, two rookies are on duty. One is assigned to Engine 2, the other to Engine 8. You are in for a busy day, Hicks said to Kris Boszko, who joined the department after working for the Marathon Fire Department in the Keys. On any given day there can be as many as 30 to 35 calls in a shift per truck. It doesnt take long for the first call to come, activating the stations alarms and lights. The crew of Engine 8 is off to an unresponsive homeless man in front of a car dealership. We get these calls all the time, says firefighter Jeremy Vaughn as he puts on white medical gloves. Boszko follows Vaughns lead. The driver, Tom Major, easily weaves the truck through traffic, getting through intersections, occasionally blowing the airhorn to warn morning rush-hour drivers to get out of the way. After a quick check of the man, paramedics take him to the hospital. The next call: a flaming roll of toilet paper at Dillard High School. When the truck arrives, the fire is out and the charred paper sits in the hallway. Meanwhile, back at the firehouse, menu-planning for the days meals begins. Everyone chips in and a designated crew heads to Publix. But if a call comes in, the groceries have to wait. People have the perception that thats all we do, but thats not the case, Hicks says of the shopping, cooking and eating. Its up to the rookies to clear the table and help with the dishes. The veteran firefighters also use down time to drill the newbies on how to hold a fire hose and get suited up in two minutes. This morning is a little slower than usual, but no one gets too comfortable. Firefighters say they have tricks for being ready. If they go for a shower, their clothes sit nearby. Same thing with sleeping. Most wear shoes with elastic or zippers. Very rarely do we get to just sit around, Major said as he talks to fellow firefighters about life, football and country music. Not every call is major though. The firefighters of Station 2 often gear up to find only a false alarm. Switching gears becomes second nature for the firefighters. One minute they are assisting someone who cant breathe, the next they are shoring up a building hit by an SUV. Its now 6 p.m. and a driver has lost control of his Ford Explorer and plowed through The Plant Boat, 1130 S. Federal Highway. When Engine 8 arrives, the crew joins several other fire trucks and rescuers already there. The firefighters sweep through the building to make sure no one is inside. Making their way through the shattered glass and cracked concrete, firefighters quickly realize that the building is structurally unsafe. Crews use a hydraulic pole system to shore up the building, while police shut down busy Federal Highway. Its surprising no one was hurt, Hicks says. As soon as Engine 8 gets clearance to leave, the crew is sent to the next call. A man calls 911 after smelling something burning in his attic. The rookie is a little too tall for the space, so Hicks hoists himself up until his legs disappear. Nothing is hot, but Hicks tells the man there are issues with the air conditioner. Dont hesitate to call again if you smell it, he said. Associated PressFirefighters Kris Boszko and Ralp Edo treat Mary Mathews in her apartment for respiratory problems in Fort Lauderdale. Fort Lauderdales Station 2, which covers the middlle northwest, the middle southeast and downtown, was ranked as the busiest station in the United States by Firehouse magazine, in front of the second busiest Los Angeles. After sabotage, air travel system slowly recovers Associated PressCHICAGO The nations air travel system slowly began to recover Saturday after an alleged act of employee sabotage at a large regional air traffic control center brought Chicagos two international airports to a halt. At the height of the travel misery Friday, more than 2,000 flights in and out of OHare and Midway airports had been canceled. Authorities said a contract employee started a fire Friday morning in the basement telecommunications room of a control center in the Chicago suburb of Aurora and then attempted to commit suicide by slashing his throat. Brian Howard, 36, of Naperville, was charged with destruction of aircraft or aircraft facilities, a felony. The FBI said Howard remains hospitalized. As of late Saturday afternoon, total Chicago flight cancelations for the day stood at more than 780 still a damagingly high number, but an improvement. Southwest Airlines, the dominant carrier at Midway, had hoped to resume a full flight schedule Saturday, but had to cancel all flights between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. NIH to treat US doctor exposed to Ebola Associated PressWASHINGTON The National Institutes of Health is preparing to care for an American doctor who was exposed to the Ebola virus while volunteering in Sierra Leone. Out of what the agency called an abundance of caution, the physician is expected to be admitted to the special isolation unit at the NIHs hospital near the nations capital as early as Sunday, for observation. NIH infectious disease chief Dr. Anthony Fauci wouldnt discuss details about the patient but said that in general, an exposure to Ebola doesnt necessarily mean someone will become sick. When someone is exposed, you want to put them into the best possible situation so if something happens you can take care of them, Fauci said. NIH is taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our patients, NIH staff and the public, said an agency statement.

Softball players killed in collisionA North Texas community college brought in counselors to comfort grieving students Saturday and canceled athletic competitions after four womens softball players were killed when an 18-wheel truck veered into oncoming traffic on a major interstate highway and crashed into the side of their team bus. The collision near Davis, Oklahoma late Friday badly damaged the drivers side of the North Central Texas College team bus driven by a coach with 15 players aboard as they returned from a scrimmage against Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, Oklahoma. In addition to the deaths, two team members remained in hospitals Saturday, one in critical condition. The other nine players were treated and released, along with the coach. A woman who answered the phone at the coachs home on Saturday said he was not going to talk about the accident now. The four players killed were identified by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol as Meagan Richardson, 19, Brooke Deckard, 20, Katelynn Woodlee, 18, and Jaiden Pelton 20. The women all were from small North Texas towns near the campus. It was not clear why the northbound 18-wheel tractortrailer lurched across the median into the southbound lanes. Police said they would investigate the accident as if it were a homicide.Chelsea Clinton gives birthWASHINGTON Former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said they are blessed, grateful and so happy to become grandparents. Their daughter, Chelsea, gave birth Friday night to her first child, Charlotte. Chelsea Clinton announced the news on Twitter and Facebook early Saturday, saying she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are full of love, awe and gratitude as we celebrate the birth of our daughter, Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky.Thirteen escape detention centerNASHVILLE, Tenn. Security upgrades at a troubled youth detention center in Nashville were not enough to prevent 13 teenagers from escaping Friday, the second major breakout from the facility this month. Tennessee Department of Childrens Services spokesman Rob Johnson said several teens overpowered a guard at the Woodland Hills Youth Development Center about 11 p.m. Friday. They took the guards radio and keys and let themselves out of a dormitory. All but one were recaptured within hours. The breakout was the latest in a series of problems that have alarmed Tennessee authorities, including a mass breakout by 32 teens on Sept. 1. The state has since begun conducting a review of youth detention security in the state. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS Ash blast KYODO NEWS/Associated PressDense white plumes spew from Mt. Ontake on Saturday as the volcanic mountain erupts in central Japan. The eruption has covered surrounding areas in ash and trapping more than 250 climbers. Seven missing, 40 injured in eruptionTOKYO A volcano in central Japan erupted in spectacular fashion on Saturday, catching mountain climbers by surprise and stranding at least 40 injured people in areas that rescue workers have been unable to reach. Another seven people were missing. The injured, unable to descend 10,062-foot Mount Ontake on their own, are staying in mountain lodges, said Sohei Hanamura, a crisis management official in Nagano prefecture. Thirty-two people had serious injuries, including at least seven who lost consciousness. Police, fire and military rescue workers were planning to try to reach the area on foot after daybreak Sunday, after deciding that the ash in the air made it too dangerous to use helicopters.Catalonia calls for independenceBARCELONA, Spain The president of Spains powerful northeastern region of Catalonia on Saturday formally called an independence referendum, the latest secession push in Europe and one of the most serious challenges to the Spanish state in recent years. Catalan leader Artur Mas signed the decree to call the referendum in a solemn ceremony in the regional government headquarters in Barcelona, flanked by most of the regions political leaders who support the vote. Two hours after Mas spoke, Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria said the Spanish government will hold an emergency cabinet meeting within days so the referendum can be challenged before Spains Constitutional Court. Pro-independence sentiment in the economically strong region has surged in recent years. The announcement came a week after Scotland voted against breaking away from Britain. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressA Turkish Kurd tries to remove the barbed wire at the Turkey-Syria border Friday near Suruc, Turkey. Attacks by the Islamic State group on the Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani have caused a mass exodus from the town. On Saturday, coalition warplanes struck at the militants in an attempt to wrest control of the area from the fighters. Associated PressCHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. With a suspect in the abduction of an 18-year-old woman back in the state, a search and rescue team worked with canine units Saturday trying to find the University of Virginia sophomore who vanished more than two weeks ago. We already have boots on the ground working, said Mark Eggeman, search and rescue coordinator for the Virginia Department of Emergency Management. We have maintained a presence on the scene searching every day since this happened. We have not stopped searching. Hannah Graham was reported missing Sept. 14, the day after the northern Virginia woman was captured by surveillance videos as she walked unaccompanied in Charlottesvilles Downtown Mall. Police have identified Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr., a hospital worker, as the last person to be seen with Graham early on the morning of Sept. 13. Matthew was returned from Texas late Friday after he was found on a beach near Galveston. He is being held without bond at the CharlottesvilleAlbemarle Regional Jail. Matthew, 32, is expected to make his first court appearance on Thursday to face a charge of abduction with intent to defile or sexually molest. While Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo has encouraged residents of his city of 40,000 and beyond to be aware of any sign of Graham, the team directed by Eggeman brings special skills in its search for her. They are trained, for instance, to detect signs of human movement. Youre looking for signs of passage, youre looking for the very subtle things that most people who are not trained to do this will walk right past, Eggeman said. The team includes volunteers often called in by the state to look for lost hunters or wayward elders. Others taking part include members of the Albemarle County Sheriffs Office. The searchers number about 20 and include about half as many canine units. Eggeman said the focus of the search is based on investigative leads. He declined to state precisely where searchers were looking Saturday other than to say south of the city in Albemarle County. Last weekend, more than 1,200 volunteers searched Charlottesville. The search area has widened to the rolling hills outside of Charlottesville. To supplement the professional searchers, Longo has encouraged area residents to search their property for any signs of Graham. He also asked real estate agents to search vacant properties. Longo acknowledged that hope of finding Graham dims the more time passes, but he said he remains hopeful. As for Eggeman, he too remains hopeful as leads continue to pour into Charlottesville investigators. Longo has said more than 1,600 tips have come in. Associated PressOfficials escort Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr., second left, on Friday during extradition to Charlottesville, Va.

Search continues for Va. student who vanished Associated PressBEIRUTU.S.-led coalition warplanes struck Islamic State fighters in Syria attacking a town near the Turkish border for the first time Saturday, as well as positions in the countrys east, activists and a Kurdish official said. The Islamic State groups assault on the Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani has sent more than 100,000 refugees streaming across the border into Turkey in recent days as Kurdish forces from Iraq and Turkey have raced to the front lines to defend the town. Nawaf Khalil, a spokesman for Syrias Kurdish Democratic Union Party, or PYD, said the strikes targeted Islamic State positions near Kobani, also known as Ayn Arab, destroying two tanks. He said the jihadi fighters later shelled the town, wounding a number of civilians. The United States and five Arab allies launched an aerial campaign against Islamic State fighters in Syria early Tuesday with the aim of rolling back and ultimately crushing the extremist group, which has created a proto-state spanning the SyriaIraq border. Along the way, the militants have massacred captured Syrian and Iraqi troops, terrorized minorities in both countries and beheaded two American journalists and a British aid worker. The latest airstrikes came as Syrias Foreign Minister Walid alMoallem told the Lebanon-based Al-Mayadeen TV that airstrikes alone will not be able wipe out the Islamic State group. Speaking from New York where he is attending the U.N. General Assembly, al-Moallem said in remarks broadcast Saturday that the U.S. should work with Damascus if it wants to win the war. They must know the importance of coordination with the people of this country because they know what goes on there, al-Moallem said. The U.S. has ruled out any coordination with President Bashar Assads government, which is at war with the Islamic State group as well as Western-backed rebels. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the coalitions strikes near Kobani came amid heavy fighting between the Islamic State group and members of the Kurdish force known as the Peoples Protection Units, or YPK. The Britain-based group, which relies on activists inside Syria, had no immediate word on casualties from Saturdays strikes. The Observatory reported Friday that 13 civilians have been killed by the strikes since they began. The fighting around Kobani sparked one of the largest single outflows of refugees since Syrias conflict began more than three years ago. The Syrian Kurdish forces have long been one of the most effective fighting units battling the Islamic State, but the tide has turned in recent weeks as the Islamic militants have attacked with heavy weapons likely looted from neighboring Iraq. Associated PressHONG KONG Leaders of a Hong Kong pro-democracymovement kicked off a long-threatened mass civil disobedience protest early Sunday to challenge Beijing over its recent decision to rule out genuine democratic reforms for the former British colony. Organizers of Occupy Central with Love and Peace said that an occupation of the streets outside government headquarters has officially begun. The movement had originally planned a mass sitin to paralyze the Asian financial hubs central business district on Wednesday, but organizers made the surprise move in an apparent bid to harness momentum from a student-led demonstration outside the government complex that has attracted thousands of supporters over two nights. Pro-democracy supporters are demanding that Chinas Communist leaders allow fully democratic elections in 2017. China, which took control of the former British colony in 1997, has promised that Hong Kongs top leader can be chosen through universal suffrage. But tensions over the Asian financial hubs political future boiled over after Chinas legislature last month ruled out letting the public nominate candidates, instead insisting they be screened by a committee of Beijing loyalists similar to the one that currently picks the citys leader. The organizers of the nonviolent protest movement said they want Beijing to abandon its decision and the Hong Kong government to resume political reform consultations. The courage of the students and members of the public in their spontaneous decision to stay has touched many Hong Kong people, the group said in a statement. Yet, the government has remained unmoved. As the wheel of time has reached this point, we have decided to arise and act. Occupy Central protest starts in HK US-led planes strike fighters attacking town

Plaster peels from the walls. Broken porcelain light fixtures hang haphazardly above where beds once stood. The low clanging of boats and the splash of waves on the breakwater drift in through cracked windowpanes that showcase a resplendent view of the Statue of Liberty. This is where the sickest immigrants came on their final days. If you found yourself in this room, you were either too sick to survive or too sick to stay, tour guide Jessica CameronBush said. And this was your last view the Statue of Liberty. The historic complex, where 1.2 million immigrants received medical care between 1901 and 1954, is opening to the public on Wednesday for the first time in 60 years. The complex of 29 unrestored buildings is located across the ferry slip from the fully-restored immigration museum. As part of the tour opening, an exhibit by artist JR titled Unframed Ellis Island, will be on display throughout the abandoned complex. The exhibit uses life-size historic photographs of immigrants and others that have been superimposed on walls and other parts of the buildings. The effect is eerie. Round a corner, and come face-to-face with the eyes of children staring out from busted windows. Enter a sterilization room and see the doctors who once washed up before surgery. The photos are designed to fade away with time. For the volunteer tour guides and historians, walking through the hospital complex is a dream. To see the photos come to life, it really is so unique. I cant wait for more people to come and see this, said CameronBush, who is the educational director of Save Ellis Island Inc., a nonprofit that raised funds along with the National Park Service to partially restore several of the hospital building complexes. The 90-minute tours, run by Cameron-Bush and others, will take place four times a day and will be limited to 10 people per tour, ages 13 and older. The tickets are offered on a reserved basis by Save Ellis Island and cost $25. Proceeds will go toward the continued preservation and restoration of the complex. Jan Calella, president of the nonprofit, said the idea to open the crumbling buildings to the public came up after Superstorm Sandy, which ruined the exhibit about the hospital that previously was used to teach schoolchildren. It seemed like an opportunity we could not pass up, she said. It gives the public a glimpse of history, but also were able to show them what happens to historic buildings when they dont get the care they deserve. In its day, the complex was the largest U.S. Public Health Service institution. Sick and pregnant immigrants were treated before they were allowed to enter the country or were sent back to their native land. The facility included wards for contagious diseases, mental health and obstetrics. The laundry facility housed giant washers; a massive autoclave sterilized beds.

See ELLIS/ Page A15 NYC tour guide license test: Its no Facebook quiz BETHJ. HARPAZ AP Travel EditorNEW YORK How well do you know New York City? Im not just talking Grand Central and the Brooklyn Bridge. Do you know where Jackie O lived and how to reach the Bronx Zoo by subway? Do you know the difference between Peter Minuit and Peter Stuyvesant? This is no Facebook quiz. These questions are from the ultimate test of New York knowledge: the citys test to license sightseeing guides. I took the test cold, on a lark, with no advance prep. As a native New Yorker whos written about tourism for more than a decade, I figured it would be a breeze. I also volunteer with an organization called Big Apple Greeter, taking visitors on informal walks through my favorite neighborhoods. But the tour guide test is no walk in Central Park not to mention Prospect Park (and if you dont know where that is, youd never pass). After laboring for nearly two hours over 150 questions on everything from Greek Revival architecture to why the Staten Island ferry is orange, I was humbled (and Im sure I got the ferry question wrong). Sure, I know the best place in Manhattan to see Picassos, but I have no idea which bridges and highways allow buses. I guessed right on whether the Bronx is the size of London or Paris, but Im terrible with pop culture: Just where was the Huxtables house on The Cosby Show? Some things, you pick up living here questions on Harlem, Greenwich Village, the Brooklyn Bridge, Grand Central seemed doable. For more obscure things, a personal connection helped. I nailed the question about a Yiddish theater on the Lower East Side because my seventhgrade best friend lived next to the site. But I never could keep those old Dutch guys straight Minuit and Stuyvesant. Pity the test-taker whos not up on immigrants, tenements and water towers. If you dont know that stuff, hit the books before putting down $100 in test and liAssociated PressThe Tribute in Light rises Sept. 10 behind the Brooklyn Bridge and buildings adjacent to the World Trade Center complex in New York. The tribute, an art installation of 88 searchlights aiming skyward in two columns, is a remembrance of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The New York City licensing test for sightseeing guides includes questions about the bridge and the trade center. See TEST/ Page A15

A12SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER28, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: When my daughter graduated high school, my husband and I agreed that she could live with us for free because she was paying college tuition. Norma is now 21 and has her degree. She still refuses to pay any kind of rent, although she takes care of her car, phone and insurance. She does not help out around the house. She says she wants to save at least $5,000 before she moves out. I am embarrassed to have people over, because Normas bathroom is also our guest bathroom, and its disgusting. When I get sickened enough by it, I go in with a gallon of bleach. Norma also has a boyfriend she refuses to let us meet, even though theyve been dating for months. We suspect she doesnt want him to see what a slob she is, but she claims we are not respecting her choices and shouldnt enforce any rules, because she is 21. We raised her to be neat, kind and respectful. We dont want her out on the streets. What do we do? Ready To Empty Nest Dear Ready: Norma is an adult with a college degree. She is also taking advantage of her overly indulgent, kindhearted parents. You are doing this girl no favors by allowing her to be an irresponsible child. She will grow up only when forced to do so, and you certainly dont want to have this same problem in five years. Tell Norma she has three months to find another place to live, and then help her pack. Dear Annie: Having been through the same embarrassing problem as Too Old, I finally listened to my urologist and tried a vacuum therapy system for my erectile dysfunction. The results solved the problem of impotence completely. It could also enable Too Old to satisfy the unfulfilled needs that produced his problem with Jane.

Vets sought for classroom talksThe Veterans Appreciation Week Ad Hoc Coordinating Committee will conduct its annual Veterans in the Classroom program, Nov. 5 to 14, as part of its 22 annual Veterans Appreciation Week activities. Coordinated by the Citrus County Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), the Veterans in the Classroom program brings living history to the classrooms of the countys public and private schools, as well as homeschool groups. Veterans share with students their firsthand military experiences and travels while serving in uniform around the world in peace and war. The model Veterans in the Classroom program was recognized in 2008 with a Florida Education Foundation award. The programs success has generated the need for additional veterans to share their experiences with students. Persian Gulf, Afghanistan, Iraq, Air Force, National Guard and women veterans are especially needed as participants.

Page A14SUNDA Y, SEP TEMBER 28, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE VETERANS C.J. RISAK CorrespondentHow many times has it been said War is hell. Not nearly enough to match the number of times that emotion deserved.George Castner was involved in the Battle of the Bulge, often referred to as Americas greatest challenge, and victory, of World War II. He witnessed the horror first hand. Castner grew up in Dearborn, Michigan, located just outside of Detroit. He was drafted in 1942. A friend of mine and I wanted to join the Marines, but my mother, she was a single mother and she wouldnt sign off on me, he said. So he joined and I was drafted later. Castners first stop was Fort Dix, New Jersey. He was then assigned to Camp (now Fort) Polk, Louisiana, to train on tanks with the 11th Armored Division. I was a loader, I put the shells in the cannon, Castner, who currently lives in Dunnellon, explained. But when he first arrived in France, he was a clerk and a reserve replacement for a tank; injuries and accidents got him assigned to a crew. Later in the war he would become an assistant driver. A corporal, Castner was one of thousands of soldiers who served as crew members on the Allies main battle tank of the war, the M4 Sherman. Its been described as a reliable and extremely mobile medium tank, but it was also outmatched by the heavier German vehicles, in particular the Panzerkampfwagen VI, or Tiger, tanks which were more than twice its weight and featured far deadlier armament. That made life inside a Sherman following the invasion of France, and certainly during the Battle of the Bulge, precarious at best. Castner experienced it first hand. Thats it, the Battle of the Bulge, he said of his initial action of the war. He landed in northern France at Cherbourg, traveling west as part of General George S. Pattons Third Army to Reims, southwest of the Belgian border. After Christmas we moved up there, Castner said. We were destined for there. One memory that lingers involved the loss of his tanks commander and the breakdown of another crew member during a clash in which his tank was destroyed. A mortar shell hit on the door, he said, and (our commanders) body was blown away, all the way to the beltline, half way down. He would Riding the Sherman tank into battle STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleGeorge Kastner, U.S. Army veteran of World War II holds some of the medals from his service in the 11th Armor Division. Serving from 1942 to 1946, Kastner was an assistant tank driver in Sherman M4A4 tanks. He saw combat at the Battle of the Bulge and Colmar Pocket. Name: George Castner Rank: Corporal Branch: U.S. Army Units: Third Army, 11th Armored Division, 42nd Armored Battalion When served: 1942-45 Where: Landed in Cherbourg, France, and traveled to Reims; served in the Battle of the Bulge, and in Belgium and Germany Jobs: Castner was as a loader for the main weapon on an M4 Sherman medium tank, as part of General George S. Pattons Third Army, which was instrumental in relieving the besieged forces at Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge. See BULGE / Page A16

The complex, which will be opened to the public on Oct. 1, 2014, stopped operating in 1954. old morgue, an angled room with a stadium seat so doctors could watch autopsies performed. About 3,500 people died at Ellis Island 1,400 were children felled by scarlet fever, tuberculosis and other illnesses rampant in years past. Its gloomy now and has a romantic feeling, but this was not the way it was when it was opened, historian Barry Moreno said. It was very clean, hygienic and state-of-the art. Visitors will wear hard hats as they wander through broken glass, into rooms without electricity and across overgrown grass strewn with refuse. The areas where the public will go have been tested and cleaned, but nothing has been actually restored. We want people to see it, said volunteer tour guide Susan Kaufman. If they see it, theyll want to preserve it. ELLISContinued from Page A11 cense fees. Blue Guide New York, a cultural guide covering art, history and architecture, is recommended test prep. The New York City Department of Consumer Affairs, which administers the test, also offers a study guide online. A passing score is 97 out of 150. Despite the challenges, I got 113 correct, but fell short of the 120 required to pass with distinction. Last year, 399 of 432 who took the test passed. City law says anyone who guides or directs people to a place or point of interest here must have a license. If youre hiring a guide and want to check, ask to see the official sightseeing guide photo ID, or search for the name on the Consumer Affairs website. Licensed guides complain theyve witnessed unlicensed guides leading tours. Some wonder whether the credential matters. I dont think Im any better at what I do now that I have my guide license than I was before, said Tony Muia, who offers A Slice of Brooklyn pizza tours and Christmas Lights & Cannoli tours. Ive never had anybody check it. Why must we spend the time and money to get it? Justin Ferate, who wrote the sightseeing test for Consumer Affairs and is a guide himself, offering tours of neighborhoods around the city, says the license is one level of quality control. Is it a perfect measure? No. But it is a process which basically declares the person has a module of knowledge. You want to know the person who is in front of you is speaking with some level of authority. It is a difficult test for many people, and passing it adds a certain gravitas. For sure, even those who pass find it tough. For me, the only easy questions were about food. Any self-respecting New Yorker I daresay, any self-respecting foodie knows the difference among baba ganoush, kimchi and a bialy. Bagels versus bialys? Thats harder. But it wasnt on the test. TESTContinued from Page A11 Cycling Frances Loire Valley KAREN SCHWARTZ Associated PressCHAUMONT-SUR-LOIRE, France There are hundreds of miles of bike trails through the chateaux towns of the Loire Valley and thats what tripped us up. Wed been trying to cycle the 17 miles (27 kilometers) from Chenonceaux to Chaumont, but kept getting lost. We even asked directions from a passing motorist who was certain she knew which way the bike route went, then sent us to the wrong town. Now we were at a Y-intersection on the outskirts of Chaumont; facing two green-and-white bike path signs mounted on the same post, but pointing in opposite directions. Perplexed, we took a guess and went right, eventually reaching our bed-and-breakfast from the back of town. Perhaps the other fork would have led to the front. Perhaps not. Despite the misadventures, cycling in the Loire Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is thoroughly enjoyable. With 500 miles (800 kilometers) of bike routes, there are countless options depending on interest and ability. Our five-day trip took us through farmers fields where we helped ourselves to fresh peas, and through shaded forests that surprised us with deer. We cycled along mostly flat pathways, paved roads, cobblestones and occasional gravel. While the biking wasnt nearly as challenging as the navigation, that isnt why one cycles the Loire. Its about the food, the wine, the scenery and the history. Indeed, the easy riding and fairytale castles make this an ideal trip to take with older children and teens. Each town we visited Amboise, Chenonceaux, Chaumont, Chambord and Blois was built around an ancient chateau. Although few were ever fully inhabited and all were emptied during the French Revolution, they are architecturally interesting and historically intriguing. Our favorite was the Chateau de Chenonceau and its beautiful gardens. It has not only been refurnished, but the wing built spanning the river Cher has been turned into a gallery that recounts the 16th century love affair between King Henri II and his much older mistress along with the revenge his wife, Queen Catherine de Medici, eventually enjoyed. It was also the site of our best meal, on the terrace of our hotel, La Roseraie, a simple 18th century inn that claims it has hosted Eleanor Roosevelt, Harry Truman and Winston Churchill among others. We planned our self-guided trip with the help of Maggie LaCoste, who runs ExperienceFranceByBike.com. In Amboise, we passed two group cycling trips, one run by Backroads and the other by Butterfield & Robinson. They both offer six-day guided trips, but visit different towns. Any feeling of superiority I had as we passed the riders in matching jerseys on those organized trips quickly vanished after a few wrong turns. Still, I liked the spontaneity of not keeping to a fixed schedule, and at one point, we hopped the train to Blois with our bikes and checked out a bustling Saturday market. Spring and fall are the most popular cycling times as summers can be hot. Our trip in June coincided with several festivals, including a popular music event held outside the massive Chateau de Chambord, one of the biggest and most striking chateaus in France, and a garden festival on the castle grounds in Chaumont that continues until Nov. 2. We rented our well-maintained Trek hybrids from a chain called Detours de Loire because it offered a network of drop-off options, allowing us to pick up our bikes in Amboise and leave them in Blois. There is an additional fee for this seasonal service, which varies with distance between locations. We also hired Detours de Loire to drive our luggage from one hotel to the next for about $50 per transfer. We sometimes arrived before our bags, and on our last day, the driver forgot completely. It took several frantic phone calls to get them delivered in time to catch our train. I later noticed ads from a similar service, Bagafrance, which appeared to charge a little less. We encountered several cyclists who rode with panniers and carried their own gear, but I felt the baggage transfer was a worthwhile luxury. With no worries about securing personal items, it was easy to lock up the bikes and explore with only a water bottle and lunch in hand. And, as we racked up extra miles looking for the correct path, it was nice not to have the extra weight. That said, there is one item Ill be sure to keep close on my next Loire cycling trip: a GPS navigation system. If You Go...

stand in back of the gunner so he can stand up and look out the door to the turret. He got killed when a mortar shell hit with that door to the turret open. Then he slumped down into the tank, and the force of the blow forced him over the shoulder guard of the cannon. The rest of the crew exited the tank safely, but by then his detachment was under heavy German fire. The gunner, he lost his head, Castner said. He was running around there, so I tackled him and held him down, told him he had to calm down a bit. The minute I got off him, he got up and did the same thing again, and I had to tackle him again, with all this stuff going on. We had three (of five) tanks lost on the first day. The tank gunner would be relieved of duty and hospitalized. Castner would get another tank and ride it into Germany. Do you want some humor? Moving across Germany, we moved into a town and we went into a peripheral position at this place, it looked like a farm, Castner recalled. The barn-like structure they were encamped near had no windows and was bordered by a picket fence. That night, the crew took two-man shifts on guard duty, one manning the Shermans turret-top machine gun and the other serving as the challenger on the ground. It became foggy, a real thick fog, and they told us the enemy is right out there., he said. They began to hear noises which they later discovered was caused by the moisture-drenched trees and it was all around them. These things would sound like things crawling up on you, this water dripping from tree leaves, he said. So we called Halt! and the things were still going, so we started firing the guns. The fence, located just a short way off, was soon shot to pieces. When the other two crew members relieved Castner and his partner, They did the same thing. The next morning, that fence post was whittled to a stick. After the war, Castner would take a job in Chicago, where he would remain until retiring and moving to Dunnellon.A16SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER28, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEVETERANS 000IZ5V FLORAL CITY MERCHANTS ASSOCIATION F L O R A L C I T Y S 4 T H A N N U A L F L O R A L C I T Y S 4 T H A N N U A L F L O R A L C I T Y S 4 T H A N N U A L SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2014 000JAVQ The Sgt.

No matter whom the fourthyear defensive end stands next to in the huddle today when the Pittsburgh Steelers (2-1) face the staggering Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-3), the way the Steelers go about their business will not change. Sure, injured linebackers Jarvis Jones (wrist surgery) and Ryan Shazier (knee sprain) will be missed. It doesnt mean defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau is going to hit delete on his playbook and start from scratch for replacements Arthur Moats and Sean Spence, who filled in capably during the final 25 minutes of last Sundays surprisingly easy 37-19 win over Carolina. Its going to definitely be different, Heyward said. But thats just part of the game. Youve got to be ready for it. ... Were definitely not going to shorten the package for them. We fully expect them to step in and play. The game will cap an emotional comeback for Spence, who spent two years slowly recovering from a grisly left knee injury at the end of the 2012 preseason that threatened to end his career. The painful rehab from two torn knee ligaments and extensive nerve damage took its toll on his body and his mind. The moment he runs out of the tunnel at Heinz Field as a starter, he can finally close the page on 25 months that derailed him but did not define him. Spence believes hes as quick as he was before that awkward step against Carolina in August 2012. He believes hes smarter too thanks extensive work in the film room, where he absorbed everything he could from veterans Lawrence Timmons and Larry Foote. Spence is eager to reward the Steelers for their patience. Some teams might have moved on when his recovery slowed to a crawl. Not Pittsburgh. I appreciate that, Spence said. Its time to give it back. Things to look for as the Steelers try to move to 3-1 for the first time since 2010 while the Buccaneers look to avoid a second straight 0-4 start. HUMBLED BUCS: Whatever optimism surrounding Tampa Bay under new coach Lovie Smith vanished during a 56-14 loss to Atlanta last week. Only a pair of meaningless scores in the fourth quarter allowed the Buccaneers to avoid the worst loss in the franchises 38-year history, which is saying something. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin believes Smith will be energized by his teams struggles. Smith prefers to think hes even-keeled, but allows theres only one way to go. Associated PressTampa Bay Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey rushes for yardage Sept. 14 during the second half against the St. Louis Rams in Tampa. Steelers hoping new defense bodes well vs. Bucs See BUCS/ Page B3 Oh captain, my captain JAMESBLEVINS CorrespondentAfter three years of varsity swimming (and a fourth year under way), senior Abigail Swartz has learned a thing or two about competitive water sports at Lecanto, and isnt shy about sharing those lessons with her underclassmen to the benefit of her Panther team. Swartz was recently honored by her team and coaches with the distinction of being named team captain for the 2014-15 season, and she fits the role famously. It really means a lot, Swartz said. Ive been around the team for so long its really become a second family to me. Head coach Matt Bouthillier weighed in on what makes Swartz such a good captain after three years of development on varsity. I think Abigail has the attitude and the leadership qualities that really allowed her to kind of step into that role this year. Bouthillier said. I see a lot of maturity out of her over the last year or two, and it seems like shes ready for this. Shes ready to be responsible and make good decisions and look out for her team. Born in South Carolina, Swartz moved to Citrus County when she was 5 and started swimming when she was 10. Surrounded by swimming from an early age, it became a forgone conclusion that she would take to the pool in high school and swim for the Panthers. Ive just been doing it for so long; all of my siblings have always done it and Ive grown up around the team, Swartz said. Im just trying to continue the legacy. Swartz swims the 50 freestyle, the 100 backstroke, the 200 freestyle relay and the 200 medley relay. She qualified for regionals last year in both her relays and individually in the 200 freestyle. The 50 freestyle is a new event for Swartz, but shes very familiar with the distance due to her role in the relay. Im kind of branching out a bit with the 50 free, Swartz said. Ive been doing (that distance) for a while now in the relays, but Ive been really getting into the individual event side of it. Lecanto was runner-up to Land O Lakes last year in District 2A-6. Lecanto senior captain Swartz leads team looking for more postseason glory MATT PFIFFNER /ChronicleLecanto senior swimmer Abigail Swartz goes through a workout during a recent practice at Bicentennial Pool in Crystal River. The Panther captain swims the 50 freestyle, 100 backstroke, 200 freestyle relay and 200 medley relay. See CAPTAIN/ Page B3 Abigail Swartz SWIMMING NOTEBOOKJAMESBLEVINS CorrespondentPirates unblemishedThe Crystal River swimming and diving teams have made some big statements at several dual meets early this season. On Sept. 18, the Pirate boys team made easy work of Tavares, 122-37. The Pirate girls team made similar work in the pool, winning the meet 94-73. Anna Lane and Ethan Kennedy both won two events. Lane took the 200 freestyle (2:13.41) and the 500 freestyle (5:51.53) while Kennedy won the 200 freestyle (1:57.65) and the 500 freestyle (5:16.62). Amelia Price placed second in the 200 freestyle (2:21.87) behind Lane, but won the 100 freestyle in a time of 1:02.96. Michelle Bilby won the 50 freestyle (31.78) while teammate Renee Henry won the 100 butterfly (1:24.31). In the 100 backstroke, Jordan Collins won in a time of 1:17.50, while Jacob Penn took the boys race in 1:10.94. Angela Byrne won the 100 breaststroke in a time of 1:24.00. Crystal River won the girls 400 freestyle relay (Leah Knack, Samantha Lee, Henry, Lane), boys 200 freestyle relay (Kennedy, Steven Penn, Jacob Penn, Quynn Sisto), girls 200 freestyle relay (Jordan Collins, Byrne, Henry, Price), and the girls 200 medley relay (Price, Byrne, Collins, Lane).

B2SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER28, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLECOLLEGEFOOTBALL Associated PressRALEIGH, N.C. Jameis Winston threw for 365 yards and four touchdowns in his return from a suspension, helping No. 1 Florida State rally from 17 down to beat North Carolina State 56-41 on Saturday night. The Heisman Trophy winner directed four straight second-half touchdown drives to help the reigning national champions fight through and extend the nations longest active winning streak to a program-record 20 games. Rashad Greene hauled in 11 passes for 125 yards and the go-ahead score for the Seminoles (4-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), while Karlos Williams ran for three scores the last with 2:07 left to seal it. Winston was suspended for making an obscene public comment on campus last week, then watched backup Sean Maguire lead FSU to an overtime home win against Clemson. He shook off a third-quarter interception to keep the Seminoles pushing forward against the Wolfpack (4-1, 0-1) and quarterback Jacoby Brissett.No. 5 Auburn 45, Louisiana Tech 17AUBURN, Ala. Nick Marshall threw three touchdown passes and rushed for 105 yards to lead No. 5 Auburn to a 45-17 victory over Louisiana Tech. Marshall completed 10 of 17 passes for 166 yards for the Tigers (4-0), who produced an array of big plays to spark an offense that otherwise sputtered at times. Next up: No. 17 LSU visits to start a stretch against six straight ranked Southeastern Conference teams. Quan Bray caught a 44-yard touchdown pass and returned a punt 76 yards for another score in a 53-second span of the fourth quarter. Those plays turned a competitive game into a route against the Bulldogs (2-3), who have also lost to No. 4 Oklahoma. Cameron Artis-Payne rushed for 116 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries for the Tigers. Auburn starting linebackers Kris Frost and Cassanova McKinzy both left the game with unspecified injuries.No. 6 Texas A&M 35, Arkansas 28, OTARLINGTON, Texas Kenny Hill threw for 386 yards and four touchdowns, with a 25-yarder to Malcome Kennedy on the first play of overtime, and sixth-ranked Texas A&M rallied from a two-touchdown deficit to beat Arkansas 35-28. The Aggies (5-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) trailed 28-14 going into the fourth quarter before Hill threw two long scoring passes 86 yards to Edward Pope and 59 yards to Josh Reynolds, the later with 2:08 left only two plays after Arkansas missed a field goal. After Hills quick strike in overtime, Arkansas faced fourth-and-1 when a handoff went to Alex Collins, who finished with 131 yards rushing. But Collins was stuffed at the line by defensive end Julien Obioha to end the game. Hill completed 21 of 41 passes. Texas A&M is 5-0 for the first time since 2001. Arkansas (3-2, 0-2) has lost 14 consecutive SEC games.No. 9 Michigan State 56, Wyoming 14EAST LANSING, Mich. Michigan States record-setting offense was at it again in a 56-14 rout of Wyoming in its final tune-up before the Big Ten season. Jeremy Langford rushed for 137 of the No. 9 Spartans 533 total yards and his 3-1 team completed its most explosive prolific four games in school history with a 50.3-point average. Connor Cook was 6-for-8 through the air for 109 yards and two touchdowns, helping Michigan State score more than 50 points in backto-back games for the first time since 1978. The Spartans have scored 174 points in three home games heading into a visit from unbeaten No. 21 Nebraska next Saturday night. Tony Lippett had four catches for 76 yards and a touchdown, and Keith Mumphery scored on a run and a reception vs. the Cowboys (3-2).No. 16 Stanford 20, Washington 13SEATTLE Kevin Hogan ran for a 5-yard touchdown with 4:29 remaining, and No. 16 Stanford took advantage of a poorly timed fake punt to hold off Washington 20-13. Hogan and the Cardinal (3-1, 1-1) avoided a potentially costly 0-2 start in Pac-12 play after already losing at home to Southern California. Stanford dominated statistically, but was still tied midway through the fourth quarter because of continued problems in the red zone. That's when Washington coach Chris Petersen took a gamble running a fake punt on fourthand-9 at its own 47. The play was stuffed and Hogan scored on the ensuing possession. Associated PressATHENS, Ga. Todd Gurley ran for a career-high 208 yards and two touchdowns, including a 51-yarder in the fourth quarter, as No. 12 Georgia bounced back from an early 10-0 deficit and held off gritty Tennessee 35-32 on Saturday. The lackluster Bulldogs (3-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) struggled with the Volunteers for the second year in a row. Tennessee (2-2, 0-1) wouldnt quit, even after Jalen Hurd fumbled a handoff and Josh Dawson fell on it in the end zone for a Georgia touchdown. Tennessee (2-2, 0-1) has lost 21 straight road games against ranked teams. The Vols might have pulled off the upset if senior quarterback Justin Worley had not been sidelined for part of the second half with an apparent elbow injury. Gurley had another brilliant performance, scoring on a 1-yard leap in the second quarter before breaking straight up the middle for a TD with 9 1/2 minutes remaining.No. 19 Wisconsin 27, South Florida 10MADISON, Wis. Melvin Gordon rushed for 181 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 19 Wisconsin overcame a sluggish start to hold off South Florida 27-10. Gordon scored on carries of seven and 43 yards on the Badgers first two drives of the second half after running room finally opened up for the star tailback. The Bulls (2-3) put up an admirable effort in their first road contest of the year, getting to within 17-10 midway through the third quarter on Rodney Adams 26-yard touchdown run off a reverse. South Floridas defense had held Gordon to 50 yards in the first half. But Wisconsin (3-1) inched away in the final 20 minutes to extend their nonconference winning streak at home to 32 games.No. 22 Ohio St. 50, Cincinnati 28COLUMBUS, Ohio J.T. Barrett passed for 330 yards and four touchdowns and Ezekiel Elliott ran for 182 yards and a score to lead No. 22 Ohio State past Gunner Kiel and Cincinnati 50-28. Kiel, the acclaimed passer for the Bearcats (2-1), completed 21 of 32 passes for 352 yards and four scores in a game of wild momentum swings before a stadium-record crowd of 108,362. The Buckeyes (3-1), who won their 40th consecutive game over an in-state opponent, totaled 710 yards. But their defense couldnt stop the Bearcats, who had wide-out Chris Moore catch three passes for 221 yards and three TDs. Not until Barrett hit Devin Smith with a 29-yard scoring pass early in the fourth quarter was it clear the Buckeyes would survive.No. 25 Kansas State 58, UTEP 28MANHATTAN, Kan. Charles Jones ran for three touchdowns, Tyler Lockett returned a punt for another score and No. 25 Kansas State romped to a 58-28 victory over UTEP. DeMarcus Robinson and Jake Waters also had touchdown runs, and Waters threw for 209 yards and another score as the Wildcats (3-1) finished non-conference play by taking out their frustrations from a close loss to fifth-ranked Auburn on the hapless Miners. UTEP (2-2) managed one first down and 23 yards of offense in the first half, when Kansas State raced to a 31-0 lead. Running back Aaron Jones, the nations second-leading rusher, was held to 47 yards all but nine of them after halftime. Jameil Showers threw four TD passes for the Miners, all with the game well out of reach. Associated PressFlorida States Cameron Erving hoists Rashad Greene following Greenes touchdown against North Carolina State on Saturday during the second half in Raleigh, N.C. Florida State won 56-41. No. 1 Noles nearly escape heartbreak on the road in win over Wolfpack FIU 34, UAB 20BIRMINGHAM, Ala. Richard Leonard and Demarkus Perkins returned interceptions for touchdowns as big plays and turnovers helped FIU climb out of an early hole to beat UAB 34-20 in a Conference USA opener. The Panthers (2-3, 1-0) tied a school record, forcing six turnovers, including two pick-sixes. UAB (2-2, 0-1) needed just 84 seconds to take a quick, opening lead and were driving in the second quarter when Leonard picked Jeremiah Briscoe and raced 25 yards to tie, 7-7. Demarkus Perkins also intercepted Briscoe for a 31-yard TD. Briscoe and Cody Clements were each picked off twice. FIUs Alex McGough completed only 9 of 24 passes for 204 yards most of those on scoring tosses of 75 and 85 yards to Jonnu Smith and Glenn Coleman.

Trailing 37-27, the Owls (2-3, 1-0) stormed back as Johnson connected with Lucky Whitehead for a 21-yard touchdown with 4:10 remaining. FAU forced a punt, and Johnson engineered a 9-play, 93-yard drive capped by his strike to Terry. UTSA (1-3, 0-1) wasnt finished as Kam Jones returned the ensuing kickoff to the FAU 13 with 7 seconds left, but Tucker Carters pass was broken up by Crevon LeBlanc as time expired. Johnson threw for 295 yards and three touchdowns and ran for a 24yard score in the second quarter.

I think thats what Mike is saying. Yes, our football team is anxious to play better and see what it feels like to win a football game. FAMILIAR FACES: Tampa Bay should get some needed reinforcements from running back Doug Martin and defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, who watched the debacle against the Falcons in street clothes due to injury. Martins knee appears to be healthy while McCoy practiced with a protective covering over his injured right hand. Though Smith declined to speculate on their availability, the Steelers remain wary. (Martin) is a quality runner, a onecut, small and tough target, Tomlin said. I think they call him the muscle hamster. I dont know what that is but it sounds appropriate. FAMILIAR FACES 2.0: The Steelers brought five-time Pro Bowl linebacker James Harrison out of a brief 18-day retirement this week to address the loss of Jones, who is out at least eight weeks. The 36-year-old Harrison estimated he could see the field for -3 plays against Tampa Bay, but stressed hell need time to get back in football shape. Im going to rewrite the ending (of my career), Harrison said. Lets just see what happens. Well see if the ending is a good one or not. Just being here is good. Lets see if we can make it better. ONE-TWO PUNCH: Pittsburgh has the NFLs top rushing offense behind LeVeon Bell and LeGarrette Blount. Both backs topped 100 yards against the Panthers, the first time two Steelers have done that in the same game in 28 years. Bell, who leads the league in yards from scrimmage, has become an expert at setting up his blockers. Hes been a smart runner since Ive been associated with him, Tomlin said of Bell. I think some of the things he does, he does innately. SHUFFLED DECK: Buccaneers quarterbacks coach Marcus Arroyo will take over the game planning and play calling full time while offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford takes a leave of absence to deal with a health issue. Tampa Bay is 29th in scoring, averaging just 15.8 points a game. Mike Glennon will likely start at quarterback while Josh McCown deals with a hand injury. Once you get that first win, things kind of get rolling, Glennon said. And I think thats the mindset were taking again this year and well work ourselves through it. Its a long season; 13 games left in the season. Ten weeks from now, we wont even remember this. Besides participating in swimming, Swartz competes in weightlifting and flag football for the Panthers and is interested in pursuing a career in veterinary medicine. In regards to her personal goals, Swartz hopes to perform at her best, if only so the team can be successful the mark of a true captain. I want to try and do as well as I can to get the team to place as high as possible at districts. I want us to qualify for regionals, Swartz said. I want to basically work as hard as possible to achieve as much as I can. (I hope) to get personal bests in every (event), win districts as a team, which would be amazing, and just have as many people succeed as possible at regionals, Swartz added. When asked what being a captain means to her, Swartz was clear what role she plays in the team dynamic and how important it is that she sets the right examples. Its all about motivating people to do their best and setting good examples on and off the pool deck academically and athletically, Swartz said. (Youre) guiding people to make the right decisions and make swimming a great thing to be involved in and work really hard. And just how great a thing isswimming for the young captain to be involved in? Swimming definitely builds a lot of character, Swartz responded. It taught me a lot of things about myself that I didnt know I could do. It definitely teaches dedication and commitment, gives you a sense of teamwork and you get to have another family. At Oak Hall on Sept. 16, Crystal River won both the boys and girls meets, but it was a lot closer. The boys team won 98-81, while the girls team prevailed 95-88. Kennedy won a freestyle double of the 200 (1:55.24) and the 500 (5:11.45), while taking a leg in the 200 medley relay along with Sisto, Hunter Morrison and Jacob Penn to win in a time of 1:57.62 for the Pirates. Kennedy also had a role to play in the Pirate win in the 200 freestyle relay (1:44.11), along with Morrison, Penn and Sisto. Leach Knack won the 200 individual medley in a time of 2:49.22. Quynn won the 200 individual medley (2:15.05) and the 100 breaststroke (1:08.22). Price won the girls 100 freestyle in a time of 1:04.85. Lane won the 500 freestyle in a time of 5:54.37. Penn took home first in the 50 freestyle by clocking a time of 26.31. Michael Lewis won in one-meter diving with a score of 130.25. The Pirate girls won the 200 medley relay (Price, Byrne, Collins and Lane) and the 200 freestyle relay (Collins, Samantha Lee, Price and Lane). Panthers marching onLecanto currently holds a 5-0 record through the first two weeks of the season and is looking to continue such success through October. The Panthers recently swept Tavares on Sept. 23 116 in the girls meet; 102 in the boys meet). Lauren Macaisa, Abigail Swartz, Jordan Gangi, Aditi Kumar and Cassandra Swartz all nabbed first-place finishes for the girls team, while Lane Ramsey and Andy Machin took home some first-place finishes for the boys. Lecanto also won dual meets on Sept. 11 against Nature Coast (boys 138-35; girls 143-30) and on Sept. 18 against district opponent Weeki Wachee (boys 126-47; girls 135-45) with standouts Macaisa, both Swartzs, Brittany Gleason, Gangi, Kumar, Maureen Gillespie, Caleb Heinzman, Justin Sarris and Brady Walters taking multiple first-place finishes home. On the horizonCitrus hosts Hernando on Sept. 30 before facing Lecanto for the first time in 2014 at Bicentennial Pool on Oct. 2. The Canes then must deal with Nature Coast on Oct. 7.

Two-time defending champion Kirk Triplett was 2 under after a 72 at Pebble Beach.NFL commissioner visits domestic violence hotlineAUSTIN, Texas NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is in Texas visiting the headquarters of the National Domestic Violence hotline. Goodell and several league officials walked into the Austin office about 7:15 p.m. Saturday for what was expected to be a private two-hour meeting. He and the league have been heavily criticized for how they handled the recent suspension of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, who punched his then-fiancee in the face. Asked for comment, Goodell only said hes doing the work, as they say and that he was invited to visit the hotline. The hotline was founded in 1996 and is housed in an unmarked building. Goodell met with 11 former players earlier this week and was told the league must act immediately when someone is accused of domestic violence.Kyle Busch wins Nationwide race at DoverDOVER, Del.

Associated PressCLEVELAND Alex Colome and three relievers combined on a five-hitter as the Tampa Bay Rays blanked the Cleveland Indians 2-0 on Saturday night Colome (2-0) allowed four hits in 6 1/3 innings. Jake McGee struck out the side in the ninth for his 19th save. The Indians, who were eliminated from playoff contention Friday, got only two runners to second base. They committed two more errors, raising their major league-leading total to 116. Carlos Carrasco (8-7) allowed one earned run and four hits while striking out 10 in 7 2/3 innings. Indians All-Star left fielder Michael Brantley collected his 200th hit of the season with a fourth-inning single.AMERICAN LEAGUE Red Sox 10, Yankees 4BOSTON Derek Jeter went 1 for 2 with an infield single and left for a pinch hitter in the fifth inning. Even he wasnt going to pull the Yankees out of this hole in the next-to-last game of his career. Boston chased Masahiro Tanaka during an eight-run second inning that backed Joe Kelly, and the Boston Red Sox beat New York 10-4. After sitting out Friday nights series opener following his emotional Yankee Stadium finale the previous night, Jeter returned to his usual second spot in the lineup but as the designated hitter, not the shortstop. He received standing ovations before each at bat as fans chanted De-rek Je-ter! De-rek Je-ter! With the loss, the Yankees (83-78) ensured they will have declining wins totals in three straight seasons for the first time since 1986-90.Blue Jays 4, Orioles 2TORONTO Jose Reyes had two hits and two RBIs, J.A. Happ won consecutive starts for the first time since late May and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the AL East champion Baltimore Orioles 4-2. Happ (11-11) allowed two runs and four hits in 6 1-3 innings for his first winning streak since posting three straight victories from May 15 to May 25. Happ left after walking J.J. Hardy in the seventh. Aaron Sanchez walked pinch-hitter Steve Clevenger on four pitches, induced an inning-ending, double-play grounder from Caleb Joseph, who is in an 0-for-30 slide. Casey Janssen got three outs for his 25th save in 30 chances. With Kansas City clinching at last a wild-card berth, Toronto becomes the team with the longest playoff drought, which extends to the Blue Jays second straight World Series title in 1993.Twins 12, Tigers 3DETROIT Eduardo Escobar had a homer, four hits and a career-high six RBIs, and the Minnesota Twins ensured that the AL Central race will come down to the very end with a 12-3 rout of the Detroit Tigers. Detroit entered the night with a onegame lead over second-place Kansas City, but the Tigers fell short of clinching. Minnesota scored six runs in the fifth. Escobar and Eric Fryer both hit two-run singles during that big rally, and Escobar added a three-run homer in the eighth. Rookie Kyle Lobstein (1-2) allowed six runs in 4 2/3 innings for the Tigers. Ricky Nolasco (6-12) allowed two runs and five hits, including a solo homer by Detroits Nick Castellanos in the second. The Tigers have secured a postseason spot, but the division will still be in doubt when they send David Price to the mound Sunday against Minnesota in Game 162.NATIONAL LEAGUE Pirates 3, Reds 1CINCINNATI Travis Snider and Andrew McCutchen hit consecutive run-scoring doubles in the eighth inning, and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Cincinnati Reds 3-1 on Friday night to keep the pressure on NL Central-leading St. Louis. The Pirates have won five of six and 17 of 21 overall. They have already clinched a wild card and began the day just one back of St. Louis for the division lead. The Cardinals played the Diamondbacks on Friday night. Mike Leake struck out eight in seven solid innings in his last start of the season for Cincinnati. The righthander allowed one run Gaby Sanchezs homer on the first pitch of the fifth and three hits with two walks. Leake also helped himself in the fifth. He doubled with two out and then ran through third base coach Steve Smiths stop sign on Kristopher Negrons single to center, beating McCutchens throw with a slide that made it 1-1.Nationals 5, Marlins 1WASHINGTON Stephen Strasburg took over the league lead in strikeouts and gave up only two hits through six scoreless innings in his final tuneup start ahead of his first postseason, helping the NL East champion Washington Nationals beat the Miami Marlins 5-1. With shadows stretching across the field after the 4:07 p.m. first pitch, Strasburg (14-11) spotted his fastball at 97 mph and mixed in breaking balls that confounded a Marlins lineup missing the injured Giancarlo Stanton. Strasburg finished with seven strikeouts giving him 242, three more than Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers and one walk. It continued a vibrant finish to the regular season: In his last six starts, Strasburg went 4-1 with a 1.13 ERA, 40 strikeouts and three walks.Giants 3, Padres 1SAN FRANCISCO Brandon Crawford hit a two-run single with two outs in the eighth inning, leading the San Francisco Giants over the San Diego Padres 3-1. San Francisco (87-74) already has clinched a playoff berth and will play at Pittsburgh or St. Louis in the onegame, wild-card playoff on Wednesday. The winner advanced to face Washington in a best-of-five division series. Crawford, one of just two Giants regulars in the starting lineup, was hitless in three at-bats until his brokenbat single to left off Dale Thayer (4-5) broke a 1-all tie, driving in Matt Duffy and Brandon Belt. San Diego had walked Andrew Susac to load the bases, and Thayer struck out pinch-hitter Pablo Sandoval before Crawfords hit. Hunter Strickland (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings for his first decision in nine big league appearances. Santiago Casilla worked a perfect ninth for his 19th save in 23 chances.Brewers 2, Cubs 1MILWAUKEE Jonathan Lucroy set a major-league record for doubles in a season by a catcher, and Francisco Rodriguez moved into 10th place on baseballs career saves list in the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 win over the Chicago Cubs.

Just like at Medinah, the final match in the Ryder Cup on Saturday gave Europe another big boost of momentum going into the last round. Only this time, Europe didnt really need it. Rose capped off a remarkable Saturday for himself and his team. That 6-foot putt on the 18th hole at Gleneagles was enough to give Rose and Martin Kaymer a half-point, giving Europe a 10-6 advantage and leaving it on the cusp of another Ryder Cup victory. That was the same score two years ago, except that Europe was in dire need of a comeback. Now it is worried about complacency. This job is far from finished, Europe captain Paul McGinley said. Rose teamed with Henrik Stenson to make a record 12 birdies in 16 holes in fourballs. Equally important was getting something even a half in foursomes against Americas refreshing rookie tandem of Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed. Any glimmer of momentum that they had say they win that match they take something with them into the locker room, Graeme McDowell said. And thats what happened to us at Medinah. Thats why that putt for Justin was so huge, because it gave them nothing to take away this evening. U.S. captain Tom Watson walked away only with a lot of questions he couldnt answer. He was criticized for playing Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley a second time on Friday, and it was even more peculiar when he didnt play them at all on Saturday. It was the first time Mickelson sat out an entire day in his two decades playing the Ryder Cup. Instead, Watson sent out Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker for a fourth straight match, even though their previous games all went to the 18th hole and ended in a draw. The fatigue was evident, particularly with Walker, who shanked a shot from the third fairway. They didnt stand a chance against McDowell and Victor Dubuisson. It may have been a mistake that I put Jimmy and Rickie out for four matches, Watson said. I thought they could handle it. Watson was the last American captain to win on European soil in 1993, just two months after Spieth was born and before Mickelson completed his first full season on the PGA Tour. He has called the shots and tried to make pairings based on performance and his gut feeling. Ultimately, he put the onus on his players. Its up for the actors to go out there and act, he said. They havent acted well enough to get that standing ovation at the end in the last two Ryder Cups. Thats the way I look at it. Watson wasnt about to give up on this one. His best hope is to get American red on the scoreboard early, and he loaded the front with his best players. The first two are rookies the 21-yearold Spieth and 24-year-old Reed, the only unbeaten Americans at Gleneagles. Spieth faces McDowell, who has won both of his matches this week. Reed plays Stenson, who is 3-0 and sat out Saturday afternoon with a tender back. You might think that its a given that the Europeans are going to win, Watson said. But I sure as hell dont. It wasnt quite as convincing as Ben Crenshaw wagging his finger and saying, I have a good feeling about this like he did at Brookline in 1999 when the Americans rallied from a 10-6 deficit before a boisterous crowd outside Boston. Europe needs only four wins out of 12 singles matches to retain the cup, and an additional halve to win outright. The European comeback at Medinah began Saturday evening when Ian Poulter birdied his last five holes for an unlikely win that closed the gap to 10-6, and Europe rode that spark to the greatest rally by a visiting team in Ryder Cup history. Poulter finally delivered, even if it was only a half-point. Poulter and McIlroy were headed for defeat in fourballs against Walker and Fowler, on the verge of going 2 down on the 15th hole when Poulter chipped in across the green for birdie, and then made a 20-foot birdie on the next hole to square the match. Poulter came into this Ryder Cup with the highest winning percentage 12 wins in 15 matches of anyone who has played multiple times. He has played only twice this week, and Europe still has a 10-6 lead. This is more than a one-man team, McGinley said. Ian Poulter has been a colossus in the Ryder Cup. He played a massive role today. Europe, as always, was best at the end. For the second straight day, the Americans rallied in the morning by winning 2 1/2 points in fourballs. For the second straight day, Europe answered in the afternoon by going unbeaten (3W-0L-1D) in foursomes. Were in a tough position, Walker said. But I feel like we can dig ourselves out of the hole. Watson still confident as US digs big hole Associated PressRickie Fowler misses a putt on the 18th green Saturday during the fourball match on the second day of the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, Scotland.

Section CSUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW Here are all the things that must happen before Citrus County voters will approve increasing the local sales tax from 6 to 7 cents for neighborhood road paving: 1. The Tampa Bay Bucs will have a winning season. 2. County Commissioner Scott Adams will make a motion to rehire Brad Thorpe as county administrator. 3. Motorists in Citrus County will all use their turn signals when changing lanes on State Road 44. 4. Martians will land in Homosassa Springs and begin construction on a new Dollar General. There is a referendum on the November ballot asking county voters to voluntarily increase local taxes so that neighborhood roads can be paved. If approved, the tax increase would start immediately. Under the specifics of the program if approved your neighborhood road might not be paved for 20 years. Talk about delayed incentives. No one really expects voters to approve a tax increase. The real wager here concerns how badly the referendum will fail. Will 90 percent of county voters reject the tax hike, or will the rejection hit the 95 percent level? (My personal bet is yes). The tax increase is a bad idea that has virtually no official or unofficial support. Everyone thinks its a bad idea, and its a waste of money to even put it on the ballot. Even the acting county administrator Jeff Rogers whose job it is to communicate the value of the plan blushes when he has to talk about it in public. When the referendum is rejected, county commissioners are going to have to develop a real plan to repave and improve neighborhood roads. For the record, the county has done a very good job of For referendum, all roads lead to rejection See WINDOW/ Page C5 Talking about sex brings up our cultural values. It can also be embarrassing. However, we owe it to our young people to give them up-to-date, medically accurate information. And they need it now, for their future. We owe them this information, whether they are sexually active or not. In the Sept. 14 Chronicle, Susan Pratt discussed the River Project, which provides the only sexual health information to our public school children. Pratt revealed that the River Project utilizes the WAIT Training/Get Real curriculum from the Center for Relationship Education. These abstinence-based programs impose a narrow, moralistic view about sex and sexuality on young people, assuming that what they dont know wont hurt them. Deliberately withholding vital information that affects their health does affect them, and is not what we want for our teens. In fact, these programs lost federal funding after many independent studies proved that ASPIRE and WAIT were not workingand taxpayer money was being wasted. Since WAIT and ASPIRE lost federal funding, they have modified their programs to include some information on family planning, but 80 percent is focused on healthyrelationships, building personal power and self-regulation. These are good goals, but insufficient to supply teens with information to prevent pregnancy and STDs. Since ASPIRE is the home of the River Project, the project is based on curricula found to be inadequate. More complete information and better referral services must be added. Professionals from the fields of education, medicine, youth services and sexuality education have studied programs like River and have concluded that they present a religiously conservative belief that abstinence before marriage is the expected standard for all. These beliefs ignore the reality of sexual activity among youths, ignore the fact that marriage is being delayed The River Project is not enough to protect teens See PROTECT/ Page C3 Citizens for Informed TeensGUEST COLUMN Two important mosquitoes for this time of year, Mansonia dyari and Aedes albopictus, are on the wing and in record numbers. Mansonia dyari is a severe pest mosquito associated with rivers and wetlands. In Australia, Mansonia is known to spread Rift Valley fever. This fever is not currently found in the United States, but last year Chikungunya, another mosquito-borne disease never found in America, was literally continents away. Eight months later, there are over 750,000 cases in the Americas, with almost 200 cases in Florida. Nothing stays the same. Mansonia dyari are directly associated with water lettuce plants, which are abundant on the Withlacoochee River. Water lettuce is an invasive plant species that the Southwest Florida Water Management District is responsible for controlling on the Withlacoochee. Mansonia mosquitoes thrive while attached to water lettuce roots, which provide a source of air and protection for the developing larvae. A single plant may harbor thousands of larvae just waiting to hatch and fly off for an early morning meal of children at a bus stop or dad walking the dog at dusk. The best control for these pests is to eliminate the water lettuce. No plants, no problem. Mosquito Control is not permitted to fog for mosquitoes over state lands where they frequently hatch off. Our only course of action is to attack them when they cross into populated non-state lands, but by then its a game of too little, too late. Next, Aedes albopictus, the dreaded Asian tiger mosquito, is our femme fatale of mosquitoes. This one is a regular homebody. She may be found in any container that can hold water. Around the house, anything from an old bucket to a crumpled plastic bag can provide a breeding site. This bug can pack a punch. Aedes albopictus has the potential to transmit dengue and Chikungunya fever. These diseases, although not frequently fatal, may be debilitating for years after the infection. Since June, more than 33 percent of all mosquito control inspections have found Aedes albopictus breeding in containers. One hundred percent of these discoveries have been around homes where people were complaining about bad mosquito problems. This bug is a real threat. Aedes albopictus will fly over a half mile looking for a blood meal. With both dengue fever and Chikungunya currently active in South and Central Florida, everyone should be looking around their yard and over the neighbors fence for any containers holding water. The best control for this mosquito is to eliminate all water-holding containers around your and your neighbors houses. If you wish to keep a bird bath or a kiddie pool, you must flush them out every three to five days. There is no other way. Mosquito Control could fog your street every night of the week and still not eliminate this mosquito. Source reduction is MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle fileWater lettuce is known to grow abundantly along the Withlacoochee River. Small flecks of water lettuce can be seen in this photo mixed in with other aquatic vegetation. A single plant may harbor thousands of mosquito larvae just waiting to hatch. FALLING LEAVES AND FLYING PESTS Now that fall has arrived and the evening temperatures are cooling, one might think the mosquito season would be over. In a perfect world, maybe in Citrus County, not yet. Persistent rains and warm nights have created conditions mosquitoes are thriving in. JOELJACOBSON Special to the Chronicle See PESTS/ Page C3

Page C2SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2014 To my elected federal legislatorsIt is a sorry, sorry, sorry shame that President Obama and his advisers do not know which side their bread is buttered on. Lets take a simple example of corporate and shareholder income and the taxes that are levied by the IRS. Lets say that a corporation has an after-expense profit of $1,000 and that the IRS taxes that at 35 percent, so the U.S. government gets $350 and leaves the company with $650. Now the corporation pays the $650 to the shareholders, who are in turn taxed on the dividends that they receive at 15 percent. The IRS gets an additional $97.50 from the shareholders, leaving the shareholders with $582.50. This means that the U.S. government received $417.50 of the $1,000 profit of the corporation, which comes out to be an effective tax rate of 41.5 percent. Does the government talk with forked tongue or what? Its a shame that the government is so greedy! Its a shame that the owners of a company, the shareholders, have to pay a second tax on the earnings of the company that they own. This is money that should be considered as a return on their investment and not considered as income to the owner. Then when the owner goes to spend the earnings on his investment he is taxed again, at various amounts depending on what product or service he is buying, on the amount that he spends. Dont forget the state, county and municipality that also taxthe expenditure and the tax on real estate that he owns. If a foreign corporation does business in the United States, it is taxed by the IRS on their after-expense profit and then they can take their money back to their home country. If a U.S. corporation makes money in a foreign country, they pay the tax necessary to that country and then they can bring their money back to the United States and be taxed 35 percent, and then the owners another 15 percent when they get their dividend. This is wrong and just plain greedy! This is the reason why more than $2 trillion is sitting in foreign banks. These are the reasons that U.S. companies are relocating their headquarters out of the United States. When is my our government going to wise up and become more interested in growth and employment in the U.S. and stop chasing companies out of the country? Every time one leaves or doesnt bring its money home, it hurts our economy. It is my hope that you will revise the tax code now! That you will encourage employment and growth and be more business-friendly. There are two ways to start right now. Stop wasting and stop giving away money. The single most important thing is for you to admit that there is a problem and then to take positive steps to resolve the problem. You can do it, so why dont you?Alfred E. Mason Crystal River As Election Day nears, there is an issue that I want to make sure people know my position on, and that is Amendment 2 (the supposed medical marijuana amendment). During the 2014 session, the Florida Legislature passed a bill that legalized the use of medical marijuana yes, we already have, in Florida statute, legal medical marijuana and I have supported that. Sadly, it has caused some confusion as to my views on the Amendment 2 issue up for a vote this year. This amendment will basically legalize recreational use of marijuana for everyone, and that includes minors who arent even old enough to buy cigarettes. So let me make this very clear: I support real medical marijuana like the Legislature passed and I do not support Amendment 2, which is a backdoor way to legalize recreational marijuana. Now, my reasons for standing against Amendment 2 are simple. The amendment talks about it being for people with a debilitating ailment, the definition of a debilitating ailment can mean a lot. As a veteran, I have been diagnosed with medical issues (jumping out of planes is fun but it hurts) and there are days when the pain can literally keep me from having full range of motion and/or causes enough pain that I have to take some kind of medicine. I asked doctor friends of mine: If you claim to have pain (something that cannot truthfully be measured) that is debilitating, could they write a recommendation for pain killers? The answer is yes, and all someone has to do is be able to describe how it is debilitating (without evidence). Please also note that the Florida Medical Association is against this amendment. This is an obvious loophole that unscrupulous people will take advantage of to gain access. Next, if a minor goes to a doctor for any reason, that doctor doesnt have to have an adults permission to treat and prescribe medicine, that minor (possibly your child) could then complain about health issues (claim them as debilitating) and be recommended marijuana and there is nothing you the parent could do about it! Is that really what we want our state constitution to stand for? Instead of freedom and rights, its as a loophole for people to gain access to a drug. Yet another issue I have is the very vague term of caregiver, this is simply someone over the age of 21, could be a convicted felon and doesnt need any medical training. Today we call someone who hands out drugs like that a drug dealer, if Amendment 2 passes, they will have a more official title, caregiver! Lastly, what is medical marijuana? In the legislation that we passed that created real medical marijuana, we put limits on the amount of THC (the part that gets people high) and it is restricted to the point of not enough to become intoxicated and that it has enough for it to function as a medicine. The current Amendment 2 would allow for any and all strengths and would not require a purity and you could find additives that could make it even worse and, because it is a Constitutional amendment, we cant legislate it. People have said tax it, but we dont tax medicine in Florida and so would get no revenue ($0) from the sale of it. In the end, let me be very clear. I am absolutely in support of what we have already passed into law and is referred to as real medical marijuana. I am not a supporter in any way, shape or form of this sham that is Amendment 2 and being called medical marijuana. It is dangerous, it is not about medicine and it will show to have long-term negative effects on our already struggling society.Jimmie T. Smith is Floridas state representative for District 34.

Unfortunately, the Florida statute requires a certificate from a physician to receive a disabled parking decal. Obviously, the rules were put in place to keep decals from going to people who would fraudulently claim disability. In Mr. Youngs case, his disability was visually apparent, but he still needed to provide the necessary physicians documentation. First, the employee and the Citrus County Tax Collectors Office are not to blame. They must follow state statutes or bear the consequences for not following the rules. Mr. Young is also not at fault. The rules were put in place in October 2012 and the parking decals can be issued for up to four years, so it is likely others may not be aware of the new regulations. If we are looking for someone to cast blame on, we should start with our state legislators, who make up the rules. State statutes are written and revised every year, usually as a response to a problem that has arisen in the past, or as a response to a request by a powerful lobbyist (but that can hold for another editorial). At some point, someone circumvented the rules to acquire a disabled parking decal when they in fact were not disabled. Weve received enough Sound Offs over the years complaining about the use of disabled parking decals to believe this may be the case. When this happened, the state decided to tighten its procedures, which has the negative effect of creating another layer of bureaucracy for citizens to jump through. Unfortunately, the unintended consequences of the new rules mean Mr. Youngs life was made more difficult as he now has to arrange transportation and spend money on a doctors visit to prove what is readily apparent to any one with sight. Also, the tax collectors office and its employees were subjected to an unnecessary and embarrassing situation. The tax collectors office realizes the law is redundant, but must follow the rules. To their credit, they have requested an exemption. Mr. Young plans to voice his concerns to legislators; lets hope they are listening.

COMMENTARYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, SEPTEMBER28, 2014 C3 until later and later, and overlook the needs and questions of LGBT students. The River Project does discuss important topics such as the influence of media, drugs and alcohol and sexual abuse. But it does not spend enough, if any, time on reproduction, puberty, contraceptive options, sexual health care and sexual orientation. The teaching assumption is that the student body is heterosexual and not sexually active. But nearly half of teens are sexually active. Sexually transmitted disease and effective use of condoms are glossed over in favor of discussions and exercises about character and selfcontrol. Parents send their children to school to learn how to lead successful and productive lives. This will not be achieved if the students education, career and life are interrupted by unplanned child rearing or STDs. We agree that abstinence is the best option for teens. But abstinence fails more than any other method. Since many students do not abstain from sex, we must help teens understand the risks and responsibilities that come with sex. Survey after survey indicates that adolescents have a tremendous unmet need for information related to sexuality, contraception, STDs and making sexual decisions. One of the myths about sex education is that teaching kids about sex and providing information about contraception gives them a license to do it. Years of taxpayer-funded research proved this fear to be unfounded; yet it remains the cause of controversies in communities like ours. River Project representatives depend on sexually active students to ask for help before they can be referred to the health department for more information. However, sexually active students are naturally reluctant to ask, and miss needed information such as safer sex practices, contraception, the legal right to health care and ways to access health services, including STD testing. According to the Florida Health Department statistics, about half of all births in Citrus County are to single mothers younger than 19. Eighty percent of these teens do not have a personal physician, so prenatal care is at risk. In addition, mothers in Citrus Country are more likely than state average to have babies less than 18 months apart, another prenatal risk. Seventy percent of Citrus County births are paid for by Medicaid and 1 out of every 4 sexually active teens has an STD. Health care providers and health educators have ethical obligations to provide accurate information in our schools. Dont limit student knowledge because of the instructors values. Students have a right to receive the most accurate and complete information. We want the schools to provide information based on public health, not ideology.

PESTSContinued from Page C1 PROTECTContinued from Page C1 She was smiling, lovely and we were happy as larks While rummaging through our travel photo albums a few days ago, I spent a bit of time revisiting Greece. In doing so, on the very first page, I came across a particular picture from September 2006 of Cheryl and me atop the acropolis, with the Parthenon in the background. I know it sounds like a perfect photo opportunity, and it was, except that it was taken on our first full day in Athens and Cheryls luggage had not yet arrived. Not being one to allow a minor misfortune to dampen her spirits, Cheryl put on some of my clothes and faced the world absent her makeup or hairspray. But those outer trappings made no difference at all to her or to me. Her smile can brighten any day regardless of the circumstances. And, as she put it at the time, I am with my sweetheart. We are celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. We are together in Greece. We are on the acropolis, in front of the Parthenon. What right do I have to complain? It took two days before the airline found her stuff and got it to her. During that time, she was able to find a few things to buy. That was the biggest problem, finding the things she needed. But she was not able to get herself back to perfect until her baggage finally found its way to our hotel room. After Cheryl was able to dress in her own very becoming wardrobe, fix her hair and make her face, one of the other ladies in our tour group made a totally obtuse comment. She said, and no doubt intended as a compliment, Cheryl! You are actually very pretty! As is her way, my wife accepted the compliment graciously, and I bit my tongue. I quickly looked at a number of the other pages and the pictures from a marvelous adventure which was comprised of a week-long tour of the mainland and an Aegean Sea cruise across to Kusadasi, Turkey, with stops at a number of the picturesque Grecian Isles including Mykonos, Rhodes and Patmos. Then I came back to the picture which was taken on that first day with Cheryl in one of my shirts, in a pair of my blue jeans cinched tight enough to keep them up and wearing my sneakers. I think it is my favorite in the entire album. She was smiling, she was lovely and we were as happy as larks.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.

Fred BrannenA SLICE OF LIFE Animals should not be abusedI just read in the Citrus Chronicle Wednesdays Sound Off (Sept. 24), Make do with what we have. That person is correct. The Lord did make animals to survive outside. However, he didnt make animals to be abused by humans, neglected by humans and forced to live in an animal shelter. I dont see what is so wrong with giving these animals air conditioning. What is wrong with you people that think this new animal shelter or taking care of these animals properly in a shelter is so wrong? I dont get it. I just dont get it. I just hope to God that none of you people have animals.Caller does not careThis call is in regards to the Sound Off, Make do with what we have, today, Wednesday, Sept. 24, the lady calling in that animals dont need air conditioning. Well, she probably doesnt have one and if she does, she probably doesnt care if her dog lays in pens and is hot.Animal shelter too hotThis mornings paper (Sept. 24) Sound Off says Make do with what we have, talking about the animal shelter, with the air conditioning being a big waste and air conditioning is for humans. They should have been around whenever I was a child here in Crystal River living in an old cracker shack. We didnt always have air conditioning. Human beings didnt have air conditioning prior to 60 years ago. Its asinine for anybody to make a comment that animals cant use air conditioning or dont need air conditioning. The poor animals over at that animal shelter in Inverness, if they would go over and visit once in awhile, they would know just how hot it is in those shelters. Yeah, we need a new shelter and we need air conditioning in it.Explain thisIm calling the Chronicle about your call in Sound Off, Make do with what we have, where the person complains that the Lord made animals to survive outside and they dont need air conditioning, people need air conditioning. Well, if the Lord put animals outside, didnt he put man and woman outside too? They didnt have air conditioning then, so explain the difference.People used to live outsideThis is in reference to Make do with what we have. The caller stated that the Lord made animals to survive outside. Well, if the caller thinks about it, the Lord made people to survive outside originally. So I guess the people wouldnt need air conditioning, either.Try living in a cageIm calling in regards to the person who called the Make do with what we have, the animals, he thinks, or they think, the animals dont need air conditioning. I know we had a lot of things on that in last week, but I have to respond on the one today. This is what I would like to say to him or her or them: Lets put you in one of thosecages on the hottest, hottest, highest humidity day of they ear and lets see how well you do.These are pets, not wild animalsThis is in reference to the Sound Off in todays paper. It says Make do with what we have, about the animal shelter not needing air conditioning. Maybe we should go to your house, take out the air conditioning and see how you like it. Have you been down to the animal shelter and seen how hot it is in there? And they are packed. And have you seen how the volunteers are working their butts off to help these dogs and cats? Animals, yeah, they will survive outside. Well, guess what? Those are wild animals. These are not wild animals. So you gotyour information wrong, whoever put this in here. Maybe you can donate your air conditioner to the animal shelter if you dont think its necessary.Dogs belong outsideI didnt want to get into this dog thing, but here it is again in Wednesday mornings paper. So I just wanted to say that Ive had dogs all my life, Ive lived in Florida all my life and I never had a dog inside my house. Thats why God gave us the ability and the brains to be able to build us a home so we didnt have to live with animals. No A/C for animals or meAnimals have been on this planet for millions of years and air conditioning has been in use for only 112 years. So go figure it out. You dont see deer, bears, cows, squirrels needing air conditioning. Humans didnt until they got spoiled. In 60 years I never had air conditioning. Whats your problem? Hot Corner:MAKING DO Letters toTHE EDITOR The case against raising the minimum wageCurrently the minimum wage stands at $7.25/hour and is generally regarded as compensation for entry level, unskilled positions. Unfortunately, some empty-headed politicians feel the country and our economy would be greatly enhanced by raising the minimum wage to $15/hour. Aside from the intuitively obvious stupidity of such a move, it might be well to try a revolutionary new approach to the issue and think, at least a little bit, before we plunge off this economic cliff. Following is a list of the consequences of this unwarranted rewarding of mediocrity: 1. Every privately owned business forced to comply will ultimately be forced to raise prices or to close. (See the results of the presidential executive order issue last February forcing all businesses on military bases to comply. Many are already closing. Any wage increases for federal workers caused by this will appear to have little effect because the hapless taxpayers will have to foot the bill and the current administration uses the federal budget as its own private piggy bank to spend as it sees fit.) 2. Fast-food restaurants such as McDonalds, Wendys, Burger King, will be the first to go, along with millions of entry level jobs. Eventually Applebys, Olive Gardens, etc. will be gone, again with millions of entry-level jobs. 3. Government subsidies for the unemployed will skyrocket. 4. People on fixed incomes, particularly the elderly will lose their ability to dine out. Initially they wont be able to afford it because of the price increases and later because all of the eateries will disappear. This isnt rocket science. Most sixth graders could figure this out. Unfortunately neither the politicians nor the pundits are that smart. The politicians, of course, are buying votes. Its what they do best, i.e. use the taxpayers to fund something that will help to get the votes necessary to get them re-elected. Think about it. The average congressman or senator has an income of close to $200,000 a year, plus perks. He or she doesnt have to worry about the cost of meals; they eat in the congressional cafeteria, subsidized by the taxpayers. In their pleas for public support to raise the minimum wage, writers always ask the question. Why is it a great challenge to improve income equality through a minimum-wage increase? The answer lies in the harm that such a measure will accomplish. First of all, do we really want to incentivize individuals to stay in minimum-wage jobs? Particularly the skilled individuals and the college graduates that are there now should be encouraged to seek better positions. Second, please consider what happens to the rest of the workforce, i.e. those that are making $8, $9 $10/hour and beyond? Does everyone get a pay increase? If not, then why not? What happens to those individuals on a fixed income? Since minimumwage employees and anyone else receiving this largesse work for companies who supply products and services, wont those costs all go up? Or, if as the proponents say, we take the wage increases out of company profits, then what happens to the shareholders of those companies? Do they settle for reduced dividends? Many of those shareholders are retired, and on fixed incomes? The result of that little trick is dividends drop, stock prices fall and yes, the companies could go out of business. People need to understand that there is no free lunch when it comes to wages and the economy. There is no such thing as a living wage.Dave Groff HomosassaSome things require tax moniesIn cities stray cats and dogs are captured by animal con trol, which is either an agency run by the city, or if an SPCA does this job, the city gives it funding. If strays were not captured, there would be thousands of starving animals running loose. (Detroit has an estimated tens of thousands of stray dogs.) Animals are usually kept for 10 days in shelters to allow sufficient time for owners to come to the shelter looking for lost pets. Surrendered animals are often adopted by people who want a pet. That incident of a child being mauled by two family dogs is very tragic. So are stories (not rare) of children playing with daddy or mommys gun. One child aims, followed by a bang, and falls down. A short time later their playmate says, Get up, games over. He cant understand why his playmate wont get up and crying goes to get an adult. By now you know why. Then there are pool gates left unlocked with dire results. As far as hobbies, sex could be considered one. It is not lifethreatening if unavailable thats how babies are made. How about having a sense of responsibility on that subject and not having the attitude the public can pay for my hobby. Children come with an 18-year responsibility tag. There are cases where children and families are unfortunate victims and need and are deserving of help through no fault of their own. But there are many instances when people dont worry the government will pay. There should be a reasonable amount of money from the taxpayer that provides for a new animal shelter if necessary; also, help for needy children and adults.Margo B. Blum Homosassa

One down, a bunch to goThis morning (Sept. 19) in the Sound Off, I see a reply in regards to the road conditions in Green Acres area. After 15 to 25 letters to the commissioners and the same amount to the newspaper, I finally got somebody to step forward. Its going to take a heck of a lot of us to step forward to get these problems solved.Making it harder to recycleI live in Citrus Springs. The closing of the Citronelle recycling center has resulted, due to the recommendation in the paper to use Citrus Springs, has resulted in the Citrus Springs facility doubling up on the mess thats created and will probably result in closing the Citrus Springs facility. This is a sad state of affairs. I dont know what to do about it. I guess were going to have to try to establish house-to-house recycling for the county.Shame on youThis message is about John Young, the double amputee. All I have to say is I understand theres rules, but shame on Citrus County. Hes a double amputee. They should give him a lifetime handicapped sticker. Do you ever think that hes not going to become disabled? Hes going to be disabled for the rest of his life. Shame on Citrus County. I mean why should he have to go spend money on a doctors bill just to get authorization to prove that hes, you know, disabled? Get with the program. Go after the real people who arent disabled.Who represents District 5?I was reading today (Sept. 21) about Adams: Im fighting for the future of the county, and he says he represents District 5. Well, he lives in District 4, never moved to District 5 and claims homestead in District 4 on his beautiful mansion of a house. Now who represents us in District 5? Does County Commissioner Carnahan represent us in District 5 when he lives in Crystal River? So who do we have as a county commissioner in District 4? What is going on?This is in regards to the article on the front page of Sunday mornings paper, Sept. 21, Amputee denied renewal of disability parking tag. He has no legs and they denied him his renewal of his parking tag? Are we for real here? But yet if you have a guy or a woman thats 200 or 300 pounds overweight when they should walk from the back of the parking lot, youre going to give them a disability tag. What the heck is going on? Its his style, not substanceWhen, dear God, will people understand that we do not pick on Scott Adams for his ideas. Some of them are very good. Some of them I dont agree with, but thats the way it is. We are not arguing about his ideas and what he wants to do and plan for this area. What we object to is his behavior. Hes acting like a 5-year-old on the playground. He is bullying. He is threatening people. That is what we object to, not his ideas for the city and the county. Can you please print this and let people know? The bullying is what we object to, not his ideas.Wheres your head?I probably called in about this issue before property taxes. I reiterate: I lived in Jersey, inherited my house. Its paid for here in Inverness. Three bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, two-car garage, 1/4 acre, $650 a year property tax. If this house I own was put up in the town I love, West Milford, N.J., it would be $6,500 or more property tax for the same land. So you people complaining about property taxes around here, I dont know what situation theyre in I think its nonsense. I dont get where these peoples heads are.Shutting down landfillCommissioner Scott Adams says that he wants to cut taxes, but at the same time he is trying to take business away from the Citrus County landfill. The latest example is the school board trash that he proposes being sent to his landfill in Sumter County. As much as he attacks the Citrus County Landfill, it looks like he wants to shut it down and send it off to Sumter.Bring your own moneyI have been coming to Florida since 1932 and I have heard the statement that, If you want to live in Florida, bring your money with you. Florida is a retirement state, not a state to expect to make a fortune in. That statement is the same today. The natural parts of Florida are fantastic. The living is great. Making money? Forget it.Talking trashMonday, Sept. 22, Citrus County has headlines in the Chronicle about garbage and OTC medications. So thats what were talking about. Now is that the best headlines? Im wondering who pays for all these board meetings and discussion about garbage.Love it hereI would like to comment on the statement in the paper there on today, Sept. 22, about the younger people not liking Citrus County. Well, Ive lived here for 19 years and I love it. All I can say is hop on the bus, Gus.Kind gestureJust want to say thank you to the couple at Moschellos in Homosassa on Thursday, Sept. 18, at lunchtime for paying (for) our meal. Your kind gesture as strangers will last a lifetime. Again, thank you. Acting like a bullyThis is just an observation of Scott Adams at a recent August commission meeting. Observing his actions and his speaking, he comes across as (a) spoiled brat who sulks and uses others to get his way. When confronted, he acts like a bully, threatening to use whatever means necessary for him to prevent what he doesnt want from happening. Scott Adams is a manipulative, pushy whiner who, regardless of who is affected, uses people to his advantage and attempts to rationalize the situation as best for everyone, but the only one Scott Adams is looking out for is Scott Adams.Welcome to LevyShame on you, nonvoters. At the board of county commissioners meeting today, Sept. 23, Commissioner Adams wants to shut every project down. He claims the new board will be shutting everything down. Be careful what you wish for. Now that the three will be in, we wont have anything. Welcome to Levy County. His way or the highwayIts extremely amazing to me that Scott Adams already knows what the make-up of the new commission is going to be before the election occurs in November. His column in Sept. 21s newspaper was astonishing how much he patted himself on the back for doing nothing. I would certainly like to see the one or two things hes accomplished as a commissioner. Please. Mr. Kitchen, all the rest of you, watch out. The Scott Adams train is on the track, rolling down the road and its about his attitude and about his appreciation of each others opinions. This commission needs to have an agreement of approach. And Scott Adams wants it to be Scott Adams way or the highway.Wheres the common sense?Im reading in the Sunday (Sept. 21) Chronicle about John Young of Homosassa, who is a double amputee. He went to get a disability parking tag renewed and they told him no, he needed a doctors note. Im sorry, common sense should play some part of this. If you see he is a double amputee, why does he need a physicians note? Thats ridiculous. What has happened to common sense? God help us if these people dont have any. This is a disgrace.Puppy returnedTo the Chronicle: We would like to say thank you for printing Bring puppy home. And we would like to thank the gentleman in the blue Ford Ranger for bringing my granddaughters pug home. Thank you all for a very happy ending and I hope everybody has a wonderful day.

Look at it deeperWell, there it is; I give you kudos for printing it, Chronicle. The man that took out his family and grandkids, he did have problems and one of them was the fact that he had a felony conviction over marijuana. Thats the problem right there. And then he got in trouble because he had a felony conviction. He was out hunting and somehow had an accident and his son got killed. But it stems from a felony conviction of marijuana.Who are we?A vet who has no legs was denied a handicapped parking per mit because he didnt have a doctors note? What have we become? A bunch of automated people who think they have authority who cannot think? No common sense.Good readI just finished reading the column in Sundays paper, Sept. 21, by Dan Hilliard, Governor, we are curious. What a fantastic column. If you didnt read it, get a copy. improving and expanding major highways. When the Duke nuclear tax disaster erupted three years ago, the county continued to improve the major roads, but stopped all funding of repaving neighborhood roads. Taxpayers hate it when the roads in front of their houses have potholes. They hate it. Once the referendum is rejected by voters, the county is going to have to figure out how to use some of the existing gas tax dollars to pave neighborhood roads. That means going slower on funding the huge projects and spending more in neighborhoods. It will take many, many years to address all of the needs, but the work needs to begin. Even with the gas tax, there are not enough dollars available to repave every road. But we can address the most severe needs and make some progress. Citrus County has accepted thousands of miles of neighborhood roads from Citrus Springs to Homosassa without a solid plan on how to maintain those roads. Despite the criticism, our property values and tax rates are low in Citrus compared to other places in Florida and up North. But there is no willingness on the part of the citizenry to increase taxes to pay for these improvements. So if youre going to be a county commissioner in Citrus, youre going to have to figure it out within existing resources. Maybe the Martians have a few ideas.

Turn negatives into positivesRe: With shelters, too, it takes a village by Jack Taeff, Letters to the Editor, Sept. 12.It is important to provide a healthy atmosphere for the welfare and temporary protection of animals. It is the right thing to do. God created animals before He put man on Earth; man created existing problems, including overpopulation of domesticated animals. Animals have no voice in the matter and it is selfish and inhumane to deny any living creature a bit of comfort while they sit and wait each confusing hour of every day for their demise. Comparing humans to animals, as Mr. Taeff repeatedly does, is absurd. Getting married, having children, buying a car, taking a vacation, and owning a pet are all voluntary, and humans make the choice. I dont understand the reference to injured and killed children by their family pets when we are talking about having a decent animal shelter. There is no relationship here none, and its like comparing a Cadillac to a turnip! One day, when those who live in a pet-free, gloomy, and detached world look to society for help and sympathy, they shouldnt be surprised when people turn their backs, walk away, refuse to assist and simply stop caring. Those who are riled over the shelter improvement issue should put all their negative energy toward a positive attitude. Instead, volunteer or donate funds and amenities, it may smooth those ruffled feathers. If the hundreds of pets at shelters, foster homes and rescue facilities had owners, there obviously would be no need for a shelter in the first place. I wonder what Mr. Taeffs solution would be other than what sadly occurs: continuous euthanization of innocent creatures.Joanie Welch InvernessThink about November choicesDemocrats often call themselves pro-choice. Republicans defend freedom. Unfortunately, neither party really believes in letting individuals do what we want. When Democrats say they are pro-choice, they are talking about abortion. Some act as if a right to legal abortion is the most important freedom in America. But Democrats arent very enthusiastic about other kinds of choice. They dont want you to have the right to choose your kids school, work without joining a union, buy a gun, pay people whatever you contract to pay them if they choose to work for you, buy things you want to buy without regulations constantly interfering and so on. Liberals such as Alan Colmes say individualism is not enough, though he says Collective sounds like communism, (yes, Alan, it does), but we do work and live in a society where there is a collective well-being. He thinks we should be grateful for regulations that limit access to guns and that force people to negotiate via labor unions instead of individual contracts. But if we were really grateful, it wouldnt be necessary to force us to abide by those rules. Democrats constantly increase limits on individual choice. President Obama wont let people work in unpaid internship, and health officials in liberal cities ban trans fats from restaurants. I like the way Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) summarized liberals love of crushing choice: Its light bulbs. Its toilets. Its cars. You name it. Your freedom of choice is gone. For a party that says they are the prochoice party, this is the most anti-choice administration weve seen in a lifetime. Republicans have their own list of ways in which they want to control us. Many are not just anti-abortion (as is Sen. Paul); theyre also antigay marriage, anti-drugs, anti-gambling and, in a few cases, anti-free speech. Tony Perkins, president of the conservative Family Research Council, says most of these rules are needed to protect society as a whole. He says These consequences are paid for by the broader society and cites when he was a police officer he had to go into homes, such as in one case where there was an infant that was on the mothers body, and the mother was dead from an overdose. I had to wait for child protection to come. And that child became a ward of the state, which we all pay for. The neglect of that child is a terrible thing, but where does this logic lead? While Perkins worries that controlled substances like smoking and drugs can be habit-forming, I worry about people becoming habituated to being controlled. I wonder just how many things social conservatives would outlaw if they thought the public would accept the bans. Perkins doesnt approve of gambling, gay marriage, plural marriage, sex work or making a political statement by burning a flag. And some of those things can harm people. But shouldnt we use law to punish those who harm others, not to micromanage their lives? Meanwhile, liberals keep adding new things to their own list of items to control: wages, hate speech, high-interest loans, plastic shopping bags, large cars, health care, e-cigarettes, taxis and more. One choice America needs urgently is an alternative to politicians who constantly want to ban more things and what they really mean when they say they fight for the people. Think about this as you go to the polls.Gerard Del Vecchio HernandoGreat care for wifeAbout four weeks ago, my wife fell and broke her hip. She went to Citrus Memorial hospital. The surgical and medical and physical therapy staff who took care of her were the most kind and caring people one could ask for. They deserve a lot of credit. Then she went to Citrus Health and Rehabilitation Center. I cant say enough of the staff there, from housekeeping, laundry, nursing and physical therapy. They were so friendly, kind and understanding. They deserve a lot of credit for the care they give the patients and visitors. I know why they call them angels of mercy. God bless them.Ernest Porter InvernessC6SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER28, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLECOMMENTARY Where Theres A WILL Theres A WAY Lets Build A Cure . www.BeautifulResultsNow.com 352-628-2291 VIRGINIA WILL State Certified Building Contractor Certified Graduate Remodeler Graduate Master Builder ADDITIONS GARAGE BATHS KITCHENS 4 POINT INSPECTIONS DRYER VENT CLEANING WIND MITIGATION INSPECTIONS CBC1252474 2014 2014 2014 2014 17 Years Go to www.chronicleonline.com/divanight Vote for your favorite Sassy Cup and Help... 000JEDU Beautiful Results...

Section DSUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Bruce WilliamsSMART MONEY DEAR BRUCE: I will be selling my home next year to take a better job. Do I have to use a real estate agent to sell my home? Reader DEAR READER: Absolutely not! You can handle the transaction completely yourself and save yourself a commission that can amount to thousands of dollars. On the other side of that, it may well be that the market is a little tight where you are, and you can use the professional help. You can switch over from selling it yourself to using a Realtor at any time. DEAR BRUCE: My son is 18 years old and enrolled in college. He currently plays an online game where he makes about $1,500 a week through streaming. Family and friends have told him that he has to go to college and study accounting because he needs skills to make money, and he needs to socialize with other college kids and grow. Online gaming wont last forever. It usually fades out by age 26. Should he go to college and try to do the online game part-time, or should he hold off on going to college and build his savings? Reader DEAR READER: Stop right there! If what you say is possible, for goodness sake, why in the world would you stop him? In the event that he is making $1,500 one week and losing $500 the next, thats a different matter all together. I am taking you at your word that he is consistently knocking out $1,500 a week. Thats impressive! You mentioned his family and friends have told him to study accounting because he needs skills to make money. I dont know if that is true, but there is no reason he cant go to college. I am not sure what you mean by online gaming wont last forever. There are many online gaming opportunities that will take a little different form House can be sold without a real estate agent See MONEY/ Page D2 Associated PressMonty Hagler, President and CEO of RLF Communications, poses for a photo Sept. 19 at his offices in Greensboro, N.C. Hagler has joined a growing number of small business owners who are forgoing health coverage and paying staffers more to compensate for the lost benefits. Jason Prosser looks on Sept. 18 as his son Zachary, 3, gets a snack as he is picked up from day care, in SeaTac, Wash. Prosser and his wife are one of many middle-class couples struggling with accelerating costs for critical services such as health care and housing. At the same time, their income has been stagnant for the past three years.Associated Press He considered a variety of plans from different carriers, but they were too expensive or bare-bones. Unless we dramatically changed our plan and went with the most basic plan, I said, This is not sustainable, said Hagler, owner of RLF Communications, a Greensboro, North Carolina-based marketing company. So Hagler told his 12 staffers he would give them money starting in May to buy their own insurance, coverage likely to be better than what he could offer. He joined a growing number of small business owners who are forgoing coverage and paying staffers more to compensate for the lost benefits. Health insurer Wellpoint said last month its roster of small businesses has shrunk by 12 percent so far this year. Nearly 3 percent of 1,600 small businesses surveyed by the Society for Human Resource Management plan to give employees subsidies next year so they can buy their own coverage on private insurance exchanges.LOSING COVERAGE AT WORKInsurance brokers are getting more inquiries about individual coverage, a sign to them that many people are losing coverage at work. The brokerage HealthMarkets Inc. has had a 40 percent pickup in applications for individual insurance since the open enrollment period for insurance ended March 31. Spring and summer are normally a slow period for policy purchases. Were seeing this happen with increasing frequency and were believing well see it with greater frequency this fall, said Ken Fasola, CEO of HealthMarkets, based in North Richland Hills, Texas. If policy cancellations do rise this fall, it would likely be due to the fact many small businesses renewed their coverage before Jan. 1, 2014, when policies were required to comply with the health care law. As those policies come up for renewal, owners will have to decide whether to buy the new insurance. Owners like Hagler arent required to offer insurance. The health care law exempts companies with fewer than 50 workers. But many of these owners provided coverage because insurance is a benefit that helps retain staffers and recruit top talent. But workers may get a better deal on government-run health insurance exchanges, especially if they qualify for government subsidies that will lower premium costs for individuals and families. The government will subsidize coverage on the exchanges for individuals earning up to $45,960. The income limit for a family of four is $94,200. About half of Haglers employees bought their insurance on the North Carolina exchange, while others got insurance through their spouses plans or bought it privately. Associated PressWASHINGTON Three years ago, Jason Prosser was stunned to discover the cost of child care for his newborn son so much so that he and his wife postponed having a second child. The day care center they found near their Seattle home tops $10,000 a year. Next year, their son, now 3, can attend a Catholic preschool less than half as costly. Itll be nice to have enough relief next year, Prosser said. Its just funny that the relief will be a private school. He and his wife are among legions of middleclass families who are straining under the weight of accelerating costs for a range of essential services from day care to health care. And now a study by the Center for American Progress shows just how heavy the burden has grown: For a typical married couple with two children, the combined cost of child care, housing, health care and savings for college and retirement jumped 32 percent from 2000 to 2012 and thats after adjusting for inflation. Compounding the pain is that average pay for Americans is barely topping inflation. The figures help explain why many Americans feel stressed even as the economy has strengthened and why some feel bewildered to hear that overall inflation in the United States is, if anything, too low. From TVs, computers and cellphones to clothing and cars, many goods have dropped in price in the past decade. Those declining prices have helped Middle-class squeeze: From day care to health care See SQUEEZE/ Page D4 Associated PressNEW YORKWhen Monty Hagler learned his employee insurance premiums could rise as much as 38 percent, the small business owner decided he couldnt afford coverage that complies with the health care overhaul.DROPPING COVERAGESome small businesses finding it cheaper to offer employees money rather than health care See COVERAGE/ Page D2

from time to time, but the basic skills necessary to come out on top remain constant. At $1,500 a week, I wouldnt hold off a day. There is no reason why he cant go to school, too, earn a degree and hopefully pick up an education. DEAR BRUCE: How do you know who to trust, where to buy, and whether its even worthwhile having life insurance? Reader DEAR READER: Lets start out with the premisethat there are many good, well-intentioned individuals selling insurance who will be happy to point out what they believe are the strong points. Is life insurance worth it? Yes and no. You have to start by considering the individual who is buying insurance and for what reasons. For example, for a young couple, age 35 years, with kids and no savings, life insurance is a must! I am talking about term insurance, not whole life insurance, and be prepared to shop around to get the best possible return. The hypothetical person of 35 should be able to pick up $500,000 of coverage for less than $25 a month for 10 years. The question is, should the term be for 10 or 20 years? Usually, if you buy a longer term, it will cost more money per month, but over the first years the net cost will be lower. By the time you are 55, many of the reasons for having insurance go away. As to who to trust, make inquires with several insurance brokers. When you are talking to them, make notes and ask specific questions about the true costs involved and whether their recommendations accomplish your goals. DEAR BRUCE: In 1999, I filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. It was discharged in 2001. In 2005, the city of Baltimore came after me for taxes on one of my homes, which was included in my bankruptcy. We went back and forth with documents in court. I didnt hear anything until I moved to Arizona and tried to purchase a home, only to find out a judgment had been placed on my credit report in 2008. Ive sent documents to the credit bureaus and all but one have deleted the wrongful information. Any suggestions? James DEAR JAMES: There is no reason you shouldnt be able to solve a problem like this. Frequently, it requires the expertise of an attorney who deals with these matters on a regular basis, and it seems to me that this is one of those circumstances. A decent attorney should not have too much trouble getting this item deleted under the current statutes. The city may put you as an individual on the back burner, for whatever reason, and eventually defeat you if only by using the passage of time. This is a long way of saying, get yourself a decent attorney who specializes in these matters, and I think you will find that he or she will make this go away.Send questions to bruce@brucewilliams.com.

Im tickled that he still helps me. Most employers dont in this day and time, she said. Giving workers extra compensation to help buy insurance can result in higher income tax for the employees, and it can also mean employers will owe payroll tax on the money. Benefits attorneys and accountants recommend owners talk to a tax professional to see what their options are.A BETTER DEAL?Some owners bring in insurance brokers or benefits consultants to help workers find new insurance. We explained to them, you probably are going to come out ahead. You will get a stipend and a subsidy and coverage will be better than what you were going to get with the group plan, said Ashley Hunter, owner of HM Risk Group, an insurance brokerage based in Austin, Texas. The coverage now available to individuals in Texas is more comprehensive than the insurance Hunter provided her own staffers under a group plan. And its cheaper. Hunter paid 80 percent of premiums under the plan she dropped as of this month. Under the plan, an employee paid $140 a month. But with the stipend and government subsidy, the employee is paying $24.12 a month, Hunter said. Many of Hunters small business clients are also dropping coverage for their workers. Workers can do better on their own because they have more options than businesses, said John ODonnell, president of Insurance Consultants of Central Florida, a broker based in suburban Orlando, Florida. Small groups have to pick from two or three plans, whereas employees can go to the individual market, exercise more flexibility and have more autonomy, ODonnell said. He estimates 10 percent of his companys small business clients have ended insurance and given their workers money for coverage or are seriously considering it. Laura Adamski was looking at a nearly 30 percent increase for a policy that was up for renewal Sept. 1 and also chose to end her coverage. Shes still working with her accountant on a plan to compensate the 12 employees of her Aurora, Illinois-based advertising and design business, Cygnet Midwest. Right now shes not sure how those payments will be structured. Its hanging over me, she said. I have the three months to work on that. MONEYContinued from Page D1 COVERAGEContinued from Page D1 Associated PressWASHINGTON Aiming to restrict lenders who prey on members of the military, the Obama administration on Friday moved to close legal loopholes that have placed hundreds of thousands of service members at risk of excessive payday and other short-term loan fees. The Defense Department proposed new rules to toughen a 2006 law that limits interest rates for certain types of credit available to service members and their dependents. Under current law, lenders cannot charge members of the military more than 36 percent interest. But the loans covered by the law are so narrowly defined that lenders, many of them located near military bases, can make simple adjustments to get around its provisions. The proposed rules would broaden the definition of consumer credit so that more loans would fall under the provisions of the 2006 law. Final rules likely wont take effect until next year; the public and interest groups have 60 days to comment on the plan. Currently, transactions covered by the 36 percent cap on interest are limited to payday loans of $2,000 or less with terms of no more than 91 days, loans that are secured by a personal vehicle with terms of no more than 181 days, and tax refund anticipation loans. But the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Pentagon have found that in some cases lenders slightly altered the loans, adding $1 to the loan or one day to the terms to bypass the interest cap. In testimony to the Senate Commerce Committee last year, Holly Petraeus, the head of the Consumer Finance Protection Bureaus office for service member affairs, recounted instances in which service members from North Carolina and Delaware who each took out loans at an annual percentage rate of nearly 585 percent. The 36 percent cap did not apply because the loans were structured as open-end lines of credit. We have seen firsthand how lenders use loopholes in the rule to prey on members of the military, said Richard Cordray, the director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. They lurk right outside of military bases, offering loans that fall just beyond the parameters of the current rule. The new rules would still not apply to residential mortgages and credit for personal property purchases, such as a car loan. Moreover, the 36 percent cap would apply to all interest and fees associated with a loan, and creditors would have to disclose more information about the loan and its terms to military borrowers. In responses to an advance notice of the Pentagons proposal last year, financial industry representatives warned that the changes could reduce the availability of short-term credit for service members. We want to ensure that there are no unintended consequences from this rulemaking that would prevent credit unions, particularly those operating on military installations, from providing the safe consumer friendly products the men and women of the armed services have come to depend on, Carrie Hunt, senior vice president at the National Association of Federal Credit Unions, said in a statement. The Pentagon estimates that the first-year cost to lenders of complying with the new rules would be $96 million, but officials said that figure would be exceeded by the potential savings from reducing the number of service members who leave the military due to financial distress. Pentagon wants tighter loan protections for soldiers

Yet when you consider that average health care and college costs rocketed more than 80 percent from 2000 to 2012, its easier to understand why many families feel they are struggling. An overseas colleague characterized the situation well: America is a place where the luxuries are cheap and the necessities are expensive, said Joseph Cohen, a sociology professor at Queens College in New York. The squeeze is making it harder for middle-income families to build savings. The median net worth of families in the middle 20 percent of incomes fell 17 percent from 2010 to 2013, according to the Federal Reserves Survey of Consumer Finances. People feel greater anxiety because their pay is stagnating, their costs have gone up, and they feel like they are running in place or even falling behind, said Neera Tanden, the CAPs president. Cohen said its hard to foresee an end to the squeeze. There is every reason to believe that a country with an aging population and an economy that is increasingly reliant on highskilled workers will continue to face pressuresto spend on health care and education, he wrote in a study earlier this year. More Americans are paying higher health care costs in the form of premiums and deductibles. Stephen Tarkowski has noticed the change. When Tarkowski, 38, of Chilton, Wisconsin, first started working, if you had health insurance, you didnt have to worry about co-pays, you didnt have to worry about anything. But now, I cant afford to increase my own savings, when my health care costs are increasing at the same time, he said. Tuition and fees at four-year public colleges soared 86 percent, adjusted for inflation, from 2000 to 2012 far above the 52 percent increase of the preceding 12 years, according to data from the College Board. State aid to higher education has fallen in the past decade, thereby requiring students to bear more of the cost. Child care costs for a family of four have soared an average of 37 percent in the past 12 years, according to the data compiled by the CAP, and now exceed the typical cost of renting in every state. Those costs may be pricing some women out of the workforce, according to a Pew Research Center report. Pew found that the percentage of mothers who stay at home reached 29 percent in 2012, the highest level in two decades. So why are the costs of such critical services rising, even as many other goods and services become cheaper each year? Economists offer several explanations. Justin Wolfers, a fellow at the Brookings Institution, notes that manufactured goods have become less expensive as factories have become more efficient and automated. Manufacturers have also used cheaper overseas labor to control costs. By contrast, in-person services like education, health care and child care still require labor that cant be outsourced. Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office, also notes that colleges and hospitals unlike, say, auto makers rarely compete on price. Both receive extensive government subsidies, which reduce their incentives to cut costs. A survey by Pew this year found that 57 percent of Americans felt their income was trailing the cost of living the same proportion who felt so in October 2008 when the Great Recession was raging. Just before the recession began, the figure was 44 percent. The sensation of being squeezed persists even though the consumer price index, the most widely followed inflation gauge, has risen less than 2 percent a year since the recession ended. One reason for the disconnect is that the CPI is weighted more heavily toward things people frequently buy food and gasoline, for example. While child care can be a huge expense for families with young kids, not everyone faces it. So it makes up just 0.7 percent of the consumer price index. Its a much bigger bite in the Prosser household, however. We used to go out, we used to go to the opera, Prosser said. But now, between mortgage, bills and the child care payment, thats pretty much everything.D4SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER28, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE BUSINESS LICENSED & INSURED 000IMLQ www.michaelsfloorcoveringinc.net FLOORING WHERE QUALITY AND VALUE COME TOGETHER 685 E.

A petition for administrative hearing must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received) with the Agency Clerk in the Office of General Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, MS 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, Agency.Clerk@dep.state.fl.us, before the deadline. The failure of any person to file a petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that persons right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Permitting Authoritys action is based must contain the following information: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agencys file or identification number, if known; (b) The name, address, any email address, telephone number and any facsimile number of the petitioner; the name, address, any email address, telephone number, and any facsimile number of the petitioners representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioners substantial interests will be affected by the agency determination; (c) A statement of when and how each petitioner received notice of the agency action or proposed decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the agencys proposed action; (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agencys proposed action including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and, (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action the petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agencys proposed action. A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the Permitting Authoritys action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Permitting Authoritys final action may be different from the position taken by it in this written notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Permitting Authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation: Mediation is not available in this proceeding. Published September 28, 2014 395-0928 SUCRN Elig.

Failure to file a request for hearing within this time period shall constitute a waiver of any right such person may have to request a hearing under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Districts final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice of final agency action.

from a public library before deciding which to buy. Check out the Floridas Fabulous series. Because I travel around North America, my preference is National Geographics Field Guide to the Birds of North America costing under $30 and weighing 32 oz. National Geographics Birds of Eastern North America weighs just 22 oz. Birding binoculars with good optics have become lighter and less expensive. A good binocular with 8Xmagnification and a lens diameter of 42mm, called 8x42, can cost just $150 online with free shipping. Try Eagle Optics for information and pricing. Many brands are made in Asia. Drop in to Citrus County Audubon Societys monthly meeting. The calendar is online at citrus countyaudubon.com. Join their free guided bird walks where avid birders willingly let novices try out binoculars and spotting scopes. Dunnellon Public Library is hosting my informative presentation on local birding on at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4. Geared to local birding for casual, beginning and intermediate birders, my photos were all taken with a pocket camera. There will be a slide show, handouts, door prizes and a question-andanswer session. This is entertainment for seniors, children, teens and adults. Professional photographer Virginia Saltzman of Blue Cove, Dunnellon will have prints for purchase during the presentation. All October the librarys lobby display features bird books, curios and paraphernalia. Come and see, learn, and enjoy the afternoon with fellow nature lovers.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant. Semi-retired, she grows thousands of native plants.

Dear Gardener Gal: Im hoping you can help me in selecting the right tree for my yard. Ive done my homework and the perfect tree choice for the conditions in my yard would seem to be a Crape Myrtle. The problem is that these trees seem to demand a lot of pruning, and Im simply not able to do this at my age. Can you suggest another flowering tree that doesnt require so much work? Flowers Yes, Pruning NoDear FY/PN: Im glad you wrote to me instead of asking me this question in person. This way, you dont have to see a very frustrated Master Gardener. This persistent and damaging myth about Crape Myrtles makes all knowledgable gardeners go crazy! The truth is, while no tree is perfect, in the right place and with some thought as to final size, the Crape Myrtle is mighty close. The heavy pruning you have seen your neighbors and, sadly, some professionals do is called Crape Murder. Who started this practice, I have no idea, but it is both unnecessary and harmful to the tree. The University of Florida has an excellent publication titled Stop Crape Murder and another on basic care, complete with a chart to help you choose the right Crape Myrtle based on final size and color of blooms. Your local UF/IFAS Extension Office would be happy to send you a copy or help you find it online. Once you have a beautiful, healthy tree you can help spread the word with your own signature Flowers Yes, Pruning No! Dear Gardener Gal: I really enjoy watching the birds visiting my feeders, but the squirrels are ruining the fun. They not only eat most of the seed, but also chase the birds away. A neighbor suggested putting out peanuts for the squirrels so theyd leave the birdseed alone, but wont that just encourage the little buggers? AntiSquirrel AliceDear Anti-Squirrel Alice: Squirrel Frustrationitis is familiar to all bird lovers and gardeners. While one or two are cute and fun to watch, two dozen digging up your bulbs, upending newly planted annuals and hogging the feeders not so cute. Youre correct in assuming peanuts will draw even more of them to your yard. Actually, one of the quickest ways to discourage squirrels is to switch to a seed not on their wish list. Try Safflower seed. Cardinals, Tufted Titmouses, Chickadees and even some woodpeckers will still come to your free buffet, but the squirrels dont seem to care for it. This seed does cost more per pound than a basic seed mix, but when you factor in what the squirrels have been stealing and possible waste from the birds picking out only their favorites, you actually save money. Some folks have also had good luck with weightsensitive type bird feeders. Feel free to call your local UF/IFAS Extension Office for more suggestions, but hopefully Ive helped put the fun back in your bird watching.Gardener Gal Leslie Derrenbacker is a Master Gardener and Native Floridian.

Special to the ChronicleThis antique Ciro-flex camera dates from the Korean war. and was in business from the 1850s to the 1940s. Collectors refer to your clock as an Ogee clock case. Ogee is a wave-like molding with one convex side and the other concave, shaped like the letter S. They were manufactured by many clock companies in massive quantities. Your Waterbury Ogee clock was made during the last quarter of the 19th century. After repair, the clock should keep pretty good time. I suggest you contact Gordon Lambert to have the clock repaired. The phone number is 352591-1729. Dear John: This camera is an item I am considering selling. Attached are a couple photos of it, and I have more photos if need be. My father purchased it during the Korean War. M.A.C., Dunnellon Dear M.A.C.: In the vintage 20th century film camera category, your Ciro-flex camera is low on the totem pole of collector interest. Now is likely not a good time to sell it. To investigate further, check the website www.collectiblecameras. com. Dear John: We have two Rembrandt Masterpiece lamps made from glass and brass. We estimate their age to be perhaps 50 years old. They are in excellent condition, with the exception of the base on the taller lamp, which appears to have been painted and is flaking. The smaller is 29 inches tall, and the larger lamp is 38 inches tall. We would like to sell them and would appreciate your estimate of their value. C.H., Internet Dear C.H.: There is no specific collector interest in the two lamps. If you like them, it would be better to keep them. Potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can.

Joy Holland 352-464-4952 DEANFOSDICK Associated PressMaybe its time to rethink the way we landscape using tulips. True, the familiar, large, gobletshaped blooms make a colorful springtime splash grouped in beds and pots. But those hybrids are softies compared to their wild ancestors species tulips growing in unforgiving sites from Algeria to China. They thrive in problem areas. Tulips are not native to Holland, but growers there over the past 400 years have built an industry around developing hybrids for the commercial trade. Their classic tulips perform best with fertile soil and an ample moisture supply. Thats not the story, however, with clones of the botanical or species tulips. Those you can plant and forget. Neglect them. Sear them under the sun. Simply scratch the small bulbs into some gravel or tuck them into rocky crevices and theyll survive that austerity just as they have the harsh, hardscrabble mountain conditions of Afghanistan, Switzerland, Kazakhstan, Turkey or Mongolia. Wild tulips are better adapted to difficult conditions, said Christian Curless, a horticulturist for the flower bulb company Colorblends.com. Theyre happiest with parched conditions in summer places where the grass dries up, he said. These are the kinds of flowers you can plant in a rock garden or elevated a little bit for good drainage. Botanical tulips differ visibly from their hybrid progeny. They tend, in general, to be smaller finer in flower and in foliage, Curless said. They have more of a starry-eyed look to them. Wild tulips have been trendy in Europe since they were introduced by botanical expeditions in the early Wild tulips a good choice for early color Associated PressTulipa polychroma, a wildtulip, in a remote unforgiving native habitat in the Sahand Mountains of northwestern Iran. The fragrant blooms begin to emerge as soon as the snow melts. Bumblebees rely on the nectar from these low-lying flowers to survive in early spring.

ATTICContinued from Page E6 Bird watching is a popular hobby enjoyed by gardeners, seniors, outdoor enthusiasts, young people and children everyone with a curiosity about nature. Anybody can fill a seed feeder on a pole or an artificial nectar container close to a window and be entertained by garden birds. Even casual observers recognize an eagle, robin, woodpecker, crow, red cardinal or blue jay. Florida has 516 species of birds. Some live here year-round; others are winter residents or transients. Transient birds fly the length of the Florida peninsula en route to northern breeding grounds during spring migration or southern winter homes during fall migration. The American Bird Conservancy estimates there are about 10 billion birds in the U.S. during spring migration and as many as 20 billion during fall migration. In the tri-county area (Citrus, Marion and Levy), more than 250 bird species can be observed. Citrus County alone has over 26 easily reachable birding sites. Pick up a free guide to the western section of the Great Florida Birding Trail at tourist information centers, state parks and national wildlife refuges. Different types of birds depend on different habitats to feed and breed. Songbirds visit garden feeders and can be seen in forests and fields and along roadsides. Gulls, terns and other seabirds cruise the coasts and rest on beaches. Sandpipers and plovers are among shorebirds which search for food on tidal mudflats and beaches. Longlegged waders, like herons and egrets, eat frogs, fish, insects, reptiles and small birds in wetlands and fields. Waterfowl, including pelicans, ducks, geese and swans dive, dabble or upend in search of food. Eagles, falcons, hawks, osprey and owls are birds of prey which catch and eat fish, birds, insects, rodents and other meat. A keen desire and a camera or cellphone is all beginning birders need to get started. Just making a list of the birds you see and can recognize is an excellent start. Visit the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park to take digital pictures of their collection of birds. Read their information signs to learn about the birds that share Florida with us. When you get home, look on the Internet or in a bird book to read a brief paragraph about each species you have photographed.

Janice AyersERA Suncoast Realty. Bill MooreERA Suncoast Realty. Dawn TherouxERA American Realty. Gypsys Two Cents: Time to eat, time to sleep and time to poo. My internal clock is more accurate than weights and gears. My only trouble is getting Dad to hear my alarm.Tempus Fugit is Latin for time flies and can be found on the face of many clocks. The clock is one of the oldest human inventions, meeting the need to consistently measure intervals of time shorter than the natural units: the day, the lunar month and the year. Horology: The science of measuring time. Ed Kendrick, horologist. Antique clocks are popular area of collecting; they are not only beautiful but functional as well. I can only hope they would be used and not just sit on the mantel. There are many types of clocks: mantel, grandfather, grandmother, kitchen, wall, case, marine, cuckoo, banjo, longcase, atmospheric the list goes on. Some quality manufacturers would be Seth Thomas, Howard Miller, Waltham, Chelsea, Ansonia, Gilbert and Ingraham. Prices can range from $50 for a cuckoo to hundreds of thousands for an authentic Simon Willard. (We dont carry that one.) We are most fortunate to have Ed Kendrick as our clock dealer. Ed rents space, sells clocks and makes customer repairs. Being in Eds booth on the hour can be the ultimate multitask challenge; with all the ticktocks, chimes, bells, gongs and cuckoos going off simultaneously, one can get lost. My wife stands in this booth when the clocks are wound down hoping time has stopped.Clackity, clickity, jerks Parts ofclocks with quirks withpivots and gears and springs and tears I put it together and it works??On occasion I have watched Ed perform his magic and some things have rubbed off. Clocks must be balanced, but leave your level in the tool box. Listen to the clock: If you hear TICK-tock or tick-TOCK, its off balance. Work with a penny to balance on one side until its a smooth tick-tock. In many old homes, a kitchen clock was the only clock in the house. The manufacturers made it an annoying loud gong to be heard anywhere in the house and many had alarms to wake the neighbors. This months story is from Ed Kendrick, but Ill leave you with this thought: Time flies like an arrow and fruit flies like a banana. One of the interesting options of any hobby is how close to carry it near business level. As a retired individual, I think most hobbies stand up to the want to do and not the have to do in order to continue from day to day. So, as clocks continue to be my hobby, and in doing what I want to do, I come across some very interesting and fascinating people. Some will call me and tell me the clock I fixed doesnt work at all I get to their house (on the double) and find out it was not wound up. Others just want me to come back and check the clocks and continue the discussions. This is amusing, to say the least, and from a business point of view, time unproductive, but I do remember that any boss in business must have caring leadership to be successful. As a hobby I can take the time to sit and have coffee or tea and laugh about the forgetfulness with someone and discuss solving the worlds problems or simply what is going on in Citrus County. It makes all the difference in the world because the time spent with others in a relaxed and no-hurry atmosphere gives me a perspective on life that is received in no other way. It exemplifies the art of listening that I try to develop. The wisdom shared when someone is casual is priceless often, no bill is given but thank you is quite sufficient, and I leave with a call me if you need me.

response for discussing or solving issues, which is really a cold and noncompassionate manner. I dont have text and only a flip phone and am so glad, as I turn it off in the car and it privileges me with time to think (quietly and uninterrupted thought) and rehearse in the car my next want to do job. I would consider it a real shame if I missed the personal moments of kindness exchanged by looking in the eyes of people and noticing the silent body language of how someone reacts to what was said. It seems to me there is not enough time in the day to enjoy the simple, compassionate and relaxing times with others.

Also, in the U.S.A., they have been popular since the 1960s and s when large numbers became available from nurseries in Holland, he said. Like most spring-blooming bulbs, species tulips should be planted in the fall. Get them in the ground early enough so their roots can develop before the soil freezes. Skip the fertilizers and go easy on the watering. Moisture can be a problem, Curless said. Too much love. Species tulips arent perennials but they do live longer than the familiar standard varieties, with bulbs producing blooms through at least several seasons. Their bloom period ranges from early spring well into June. They perform best in USDA Zones 3 to 7. Shop for labels specifying the genus Tulipa, about 100 species of which have been cloned for domestic use. Look to the low-growing Tulipa tarda for white flowers with a yellow eye. It naturalizes somewhat and tolerates black walnut trees. The Tulipa bakeri has lilac-colored petals with yellow centers, and partners well with dwarf daffodils. Tulipa kaufmanniana is said to resemble a water lily when fully open and is among the first to flower in spring. The Tulipa turkestanica delivers fragrant white petals having orange centers, and is a repeat bloomer. One caution: Although species tulips are better at handling harsh growing conditions than are most modern-day tulip hybrids, theyre just as vulnerable to predation. In my (Connecticut) garden, chipmunks devastate them, Curless said. So will deer, voles and squirrels if they know where they are.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday that the nationwide average for a 30-year loan eased to 4.20 percent from 4.23 percent last week. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, slipped to 3.36 percent from 3.37 percent. At 4.20 percent, the rate on a 30-year mortgage is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Federal Reserve has been trimming its monthly bond purchases, which are intended to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The purchases are set to end next month. Last week, the average rate on the 30year loan jumped to 4.23 percent from 4.12 percent a week earlier, amid market speculation that the Fed might abandon its nearly 6-year-old policy of keeping short-term interest rates at record lows. But at their meeting that ended last Wednesday, Fed policymakers decided to keep the low rates, at least for a few more months. Fewer Americans bought homes in August, as investors retreated from real estate and first-time buyers remained scarce, data released Monday by the National Association of Realtors showed. By contrast, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday that sales of newly constructed homes surged in August, led by a wave of buying in the West and Northeast. It was the fastest sales pace since May 2008. It was seen as a clear sign of improvement for a real estate market that has been muddled in recent months, as the rebound in home sales that followed the housing bust began to slow. Chest, clock both built during the late 19th century Dear John: I live in Dunnellon and have a few things that may have some value. If I wished to sell them, how would I get an honest selling price on them? One of the things I may want to sell is this chest. I have been told it may be an antique. Do you think it could have any value? M.A.C., Internet Dear M.A.C.: Your chest of drawers was made in America during the last quarter of the 19th century. The style is Eastlake. Market interest is very soft currently for this type of furniture. If you were to sell the chest, it would be a lucky day if you got $100 for it. Dear John: A neighbor who very much enjoys your column said that you might help me find a person to get this old clock running again. The case and glass inserts are in lovely condition, but the pulley strings have been broken and retied in two places. I have done a bit of research concerning the Waterbury Company but lack the skill to delve into the mysteries of pulley and lever clocks. I would much appreciate the name and phone number of someone who might be able to help me. L.D., Internet Dear L.D.: The Waterbury Clock Company is widely recognized by clock collectors.

The style is known as Eastlake; current market interest is very soft.Special to the Chronicle Editors note: Lisa Russell has spent 30 years training dogs. Look for her bi-monthly column in Homefront.There is no question that acquiring a new dog is an exciting and unforgettable event in our lives. Most of us can remember when we got our first pet. However, after the newness wears off, generally in just days, its time to get back to our daily routines with one addition: our new dog. A big payoff comes to the owner who takes the time to teach their new dog what the family and household rules are, and if needed, get help quickly if a problem behavior starts to develop. Dear Lisa: About three months ago, my husband and I adopted a very sweet 3-year-old Lab mix. He gets along well with our 9-year-old cat too, a big plus. Our biggest problem is that when we are gone, he has figured out how to get his two front feet up on the countertops and steal the bread or whatever is in his reach. How do we stop this? Robin from Crystal RiverDear Robin: Teaching new pets the family house rules may take a little time, especially for the newest member who is trying to adjust and learning new things like rules. I would suggest that, for now, make it a priority to remove what is motivating your dog to counter surf. A suggestion would be to temporarily keep all food items out of reach of the dog by placing them in the pantry or cabinet or a bread box, until he has a better understanding of what he can and cannot do. Dear Lisa: We just picked up our 12week-old Jack Russell puppy. Our kids decided to name him Whirly because he does this cute spinning-around in place, which makes everybody laugh. My concern is about his other behavior. A couple of times a day he gets really out of control and starts running all through the house like hes a crazed dog and we have a very hard time getting him to stop. Should I be concerned? Ann from InvernessDear Ann: Congratulations on your newest family member. This behavior is quite normal for our canines from young to old; just make sure nothing is being destroyed in the process and the dog does not cause any harm to himself. Many dogs can have pent-up energy that needs to be expended or released sometimes often, depending on the breed. On occasion, excitement can induce the same behavior. Whats interesting about this behavior is many of the dogs will run the same pattern each time. Generally, most pet owners establish an exercise program for their dog, like long walks or taking their dog to dog parks for play with fellow canines. Some owners use swimming as means to provide exercise for their dog. A new and up-coming sport called canine dock diving is areally impressive sight to see the name describes it all. The dogs speedily run to the end of a dock, leaping as far as they can into the air and landing in an above-ground pool of water. They love it. Who knew dogs swimming in pools would develop in to a sport? Lisa Russell has been training dogs for more than 30 years, starting in 1979with the USAF Patrol/ Detector Dog program. In 1984 she opened her first dog training business in Jacksonville, where she has worked with thousand ofdogs andowners, teachingowners how to correct their dogs problem behaviors. She has trained dogs for the show Americas Most Wanted and has made guest appearance on radio and TV. She currently is the co-owner of the Citrus County Dog Training Center in Crystal River, where she lives with her three dogs. Email questions to l.a.russell19@gmail.com.

kids will be more productive and efficient when they can see clearly. The more easily you can read something, the more easily you can learn it, said Dr. Pamela Gallin, a pediatric ophthalmologist at NewYorkPresbyterian Hospital. Good light will help you learn more easily. Light should be bright enough to be comfortable; if kids are moving away from it or squinting, its likely too bright. It should not cast distracting shadows, and should illuminate an area beyond the work at hand, rather than serving as a high-contrast spotlight, Gallin said. The ideal is a well-lit room with extra light at the homework page, she said. You dont want an island of light in a sea of dark. However, the age-old way to sneak in just a few more pages before bedtime wont hurt them. If theyre reading a book under the blanket with a flashlight, theyre not doing any harm, Gallin said, although not being able to see clearly or straining to see could cause a headache. Without good light, youre not causing physical harm, she said, but youre not at tiptop productivity, either. Stebbins says that layering the light that is, using more than one light source in a room boosts the aesthetics and functionality of a space. In a childs bedroom or playroom, she likes to use a flush or semi-flush ceiling fixture or recessed lighting to evenly light the room and eliminate high-contrast areas bright and dark spots in a room. Then, she illuminates the space where a child is working with a lamp. Layered light adds to overall ambiance and warmth of the room, said Stebbins. If your child sits at a desk, look for a lamp with at least 60 watts of light and tall enough to cover a wide-enough area to avoid the spotlight effect, Gallin said. Lamps for the floor and the desk are commonly turned out with metal shades, but Stebbins prefers paper and linen shades because they lower the contrast by diffusing the light. If your kids study or read on the floor or couch, try parking a floor lamp behind them to wash their textbooks in light. If youre not sitting at a desk or flat surface, then you want over-your-shoulder light, Gallin said. As with a desk lamp, the scale of a floor lamp is important. If a child is reading while lying on the carpet or plopped in a beanbag chair, the light shouldnt be too far from the floor. You want to keep the light directed within 24 inches of those pages, Stebbins said. If her knees are the surface, you might be looking for a floor lamp that has multiple bulbs you can direct around. With so many kids using computers for school, parents should take extra care to keep the contrast low in the homework space. The environment should be as soft and evenly lit as possible so the high contrast on the screen isnt exaggerated by a high-contrast light in the room, Stebbins said. Associated PressIf you cant imagine how your kids can possibly see well enough to do their homework as they sprawl out on the floor, their beds or the couch; fear not: Though good lighting for the homework hour (or hours) is often forgotten, it is simple to achieve. Sometimes we get so focused on making the room look cute, we can overlook the importance of the spaces having to function well, says Chicago designer Ruthie Stebbins. Lighting options are plentiful at any budget, and online shopping can help you narrow the options. (You) can always find something pretty at any price point, said Stebbins, of RHS i + d.

grass-fed sheep and sells handmade cheese. Hewes, who has a night job as a firefighter, works about 100 acres of land with Percheron and Suffolk draft horses and mules pulling implements for haymaking, compost spreading, snow-plowing and log-hauling. Horse-powered farmers cite a number of reasons for eschewing engines. For example, horses dont use fossil fuels, their manure contributes to the farms fertility, and they cost less than tractors. As president of Draft Animal Power Network, Hewes is dedicated to mentoring and sharing experiences with other farmers who want to work with horses. Young people are starting organic vegetable farms, realizing theres an opportunity to make healthy food for local markets, Hewes says. A segment of that movement is finding out about draft animal power. Thats creating new demand for horse-powered equipment, and Amish businesses are responding to making equipment thats smaller and more accessible to beginning farmers. Dalton, Ohio-based Pioneer Equipment, an Amish manufacturer of horse-drawn farm implements, recently came out with the Homesteader for small farms. It has interchangeable parts for plowing, harrowing, discing, planting, cultivating and harvesting row crops such as carrots, onions and potatoes. Its hard to quantify how many horse-powered farmers there are. Stephen Leslie, who runs a horse-powered dairy and vegetable farm in Hartland, Vermont, says he has seen a big increase since he and his wife started Cedar Mountain Farm 20 years ago. When we started it was hard to find anyone with knowledge or equipment, says Leslie, whose book, The New HorsePowered Farm, was published in 2013. Now, the networking is incredible. Leslie says horse-powered farm equipment manufacturers, most of which are Amish, all report increasing sales and a growing number of non-Amish customers. Thats one way to gauge the health of horse farming, he says. The Draft Animal Power Network has grown to 400 members since it was formed in 2010, Hewes says. Weve had draft animal field days in the Northeast five out of the last seven years, and attendance keeps growing. There were over 1,000 last year at the event in Barton, Vermont. When people want to get into this, I really encourage them to look for some mentorship so they can have safe beginnings, Hewes says. That can be a challenge, because most of the oldtimers who were born to farming with horses are gone. Today, its up to people like me to fill the gap and provide mentorship. Thats something I really enjoy.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER28, 2014E9 E8SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER28, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE C ARL M ANUCCI 352-302-9787 S USAN M ULLEN 352-422-2133 000JDXC Terms 6 Months or More Social Membership included with all Rentals Terra Vista & Brentwood Rentals!

He readily admits that horse-powered farming takes more time and effort than tractor farming. But as one of a growing number of small-scale farmers dedicated to keeping alive the art of the teamster, hes fine with that. People always want to know how many dollars an hour can I make, and can I really profit from farming with horses, says Hewes. We can, but to me, thats the wrong question. I benefit in so many ways. I benefit from working with young stock, building fertility for the farm, and all the time I get to spend enjoying doing what Im doing. Hewes and his wife, Maryrose Livingston, own Northland Sheep Dairy on a hilltop in central New York, 40 miles south of Syracuse.

grass-fed sheep and sells handmade cheese. Hewes, who has a night job as a firefighter, works about 100 acres of land with Percheron and Suffolk draft horses and mules pulling implements for haymaking, compost spreading, snow-plowing and log-hauling. Horse-powered farmers cite a number of reasons for eschewing engines. For example, horses dont use fossil fuels, their manure contributes to the farms fertility, and they cost less than tractors. As president of Draft Animal Power Network, Hewes is dedicated to mentoring and sharing experiences with other farmers who want to work with horses. Young people are starting organic vegetable farms, realizing theres an opportunity to make healthy food for local markets, Hewes says. A segment of that movement is finding out about draft animal power. Thats creating new demand for horse-powered equipment, and Amish businesses are responding to making equipment thats smaller and more accessible to beginning farmers. Dalton, Ohio-based Pioneer Equipment, an Amish manufacturer of horse-drawn farm implements, recently came out with the Homesteader for small farms. It has interchangeable parts for plowing, harrowing, discing, planting, cultivating and harvesting row crops such as carrots, onions and potatoes. Its hard to quantify how many horse-powered farmers there are. Stephen Leslie, who runs a horse-powered dairy and vegetable farm in Hartland, Vermont, says he has seen a big increase since he and his wife started Cedar Mountain Farm 20 years ago. When we started it was hard to find anyone with knowledge or equipment, says Leslie, whose book, The New HorsePowered Farm, was published in 2013. Now, the networking is incredible. Leslie says horse-powered farm equipment manufacturers, most of which are Amish, all report increasing sales and a growing number of non-Amish customers. Thats one way to gauge the health of horse farming, he says. The Draft Animal Power Network has grown to 400 members since it was formed in 2010, Hewes says. Weve had draft animal field days in the Northeast five out of the last seven years, and attendance keeps growing. There were over 1,000 last year at the event in Barton, Vermont. When people want to get into this, I really encourage them to look for some mentorship so they can have safe beginnings, Hewes says.

kids will be more productive and efficient when they can see clearly. The more easily you can read something, the more easily you can learn it, said Dr. Pamela Gallin, a pediatric ophthalmologist at NewYorkPresbyterian Hospital. Good light will help you learn more easily. Light should be bright enough to be comfortable; if kids are moving away from it or squinting, its likely too bright. It should not cast distracting shadows, and should illuminate an area beyond the work at hand, rather than serving as a high-contrast spotlight, Gallin said. The ideal is a well-lit room with extra light at the homework page, she said. You dont want an island of light in a sea of dark. However, the age-old way to sneak in just a few more pages before bedtime wont hurt them. If theyre reading a book under the blanket with a flashlight, theyre not doing any harm, Gallin said, although not being able to see clearly or straining to see could cause a headache. Without good light, youre not causing physical harm, she said, but youre not at tiptop productivity, either. Stebbins says that layering the light that is, using more than one light source in a room boosts the aesthetics and functionality of a space. In a childs bedroom or playroom, she likes to use a flush or semi-flush ceiling fixture or recessed lighting to evenly light the room and eliminate high-contrast areas bright and dark spots in a room. Then, she illuminates the space where a child is working with a lamp. Layered light adds to overall ambiance and warmth of the room, said Stebbins. If your child sits at a desk, look for a lamp with at least 60 watts of light and tall enough to cover a wide-enough area to avoid the spotlight effect, Gallin said. Lamps for the floor and the desk are commonly turned out with metal shades, but Stebbins prefers paper and linen shades because they lower the contrast by diffusing the light. If your kids study or read on the floor or couch, try parking a floor lamp behind them to wash their textbooks in light. If youre not sitting at a desk or flat surface, then you want over-your-shoulder light, Gallin said. As with a desk lamp, the scale of a floor lamp is important. If a child is reading while lying on the carpet or plopped in a beanbag chair, the light shouldnt be too far from the floor. You want to keep the light directed within 24 inches of those pages, Stebbins said. If her knees are the surface, you might be looking for a floor lamp that has multiple bulbs you can direct around. With so many kids using computers for school, parents should take extra care to keep the contrast low in the homework space. The environment should be as soft and evenly lit as possible so the high contrast on the screen isnt exaggerated by a high-contrast light in the room, Stebbins said. Associated PressIf you cant imagine how your kids can possibly see well enough to do their homework as they sprawl out on the floor, their beds or the couch; fear not: Though good lighting for the homework hour (or hours) is often forgotten, it is simple to achieve. Sometimes we get so focused on making the room look cute, we can overlook the importance of the spaces having to function well, says Chicago designer Ruthie Stebbins. Lighting options are plentiful at any budget, and online shopping can help you narrow the options. (You) can always find something pretty at any price point, said Stebbins, of RHS i + d.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday that the nationwide average for a 30-year loan eased to 4.20 percent from 4.23 percent last week. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, slipped to 3.36 percent from 3.37 percent. At 4.20 percent, the rate on a 30-year mortgage is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Federal Reserve has been trimming its monthly bond purchases, which are intended to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The purchases are set to end next month. Last week, the average rate on the 30year loan jumped to 4.23 percent from 4.12 percent a week earlier, amid market speculation that the Fed might abandon its nearly 6-year-old policy of keeping short-term interest rates at record lows. But at their meeting that ended last Wednesday, Fed policymakers decided to keep the low rates, at least for a few more months. Fewer Americans bought homes in August, as investors retreated from real estate and first-time buyers remained scarce, data released Monday by the National Association of Realtors showed. By contrast, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday that sales of newly constructed homes surged in August, led by a wave of buying in the West and Northeast. It was the fastest sales pace since May 2008. It was seen as a clear sign of improvement for a real estate market that has been muddled in recent months, as the rebound in home sales that followed the housing bust began to slow. Chest, clock both built during the late 19th century Dear John: I live in Dunnellon and have a few things that may have some value. If I wished to sell them, how would I get an honest selling price on them? One of the things I may want to sell is this chest. I have been told it may be an antique. Do you think it could have any value? M.A.C., Internet Dear M.A.C.: Your chest of drawers was made in America during the last quarter of the 19th century. The style is Eastlake. Market interest is very soft currently for this type of furniture. If you were to sell the chest, it would be a lucky day if you got $100 for it. Dear John: A neighbor who very much enjoys your column said that you might help me find a person to get this old clock running again. The case and glass inserts are in lovely condition, but the pulley strings have been broken and retied in two places. I have done a bit of research concerning the Waterbury Company but lack the skill to delve into the mysteries of pulley and lever clocks. I would much appreciate the name and phone number of someone who might be able to help me. L.D., Internet Dear L.D.: The Waterbury Clock Company is widely recognized by clock collectors. The company was one of the largest clock manufacturers in America John SikorskiSIKORSKIS ATTIC Inside...

Look for her bi-monthly column in Homefront.There is no question that acquiring a new dog is an exciting and unforgettable event in our lives. Most of us can remember when we got our first pet. However, after the newness wears off, generally in just days, its time to get back to our daily routines with one addition: our new dog. A big payoff comes to the owner who takes the time to teach their new dog what the family and household rules are, and if needed, get help quickly if a problem behavior starts to develop. Dear Lisa: About three months ago, my husband and I adopted a very sweet 3-year-old Lab mix. He gets along well with our 9-year-old cat too, a big plus. Our biggest problem is that when we are gone, he has figured out how to get his two front feet up on the countertops and steal the bread or whatever is in his reach. How do we stop this? Robin from Crystal RiverDear Robin: Teaching new pets the family house rules may take a little time, especially for the newest member who is trying to adjust and learning new things like rules. I would suggest that, for now, make it a priority to remove what is motivating your dog to counter surf. A suggestion would be to temporarily keep all food items out of reach of the dog by placing them in the pantry or cabinet or a bread box, until he has a better understanding of what he can and cannot do. Dear Lisa: We just picked up our 12week-old Jack Russell puppy. Our kids decided to name him Whirly because he does this cute spinning-around in place, which makes everybody laugh. My concern is about his other behavior. A couple of times a day he gets really out of control and starts running all through the house like hes a crazed dog and we have a very hard time getting him to stop. Should I be concerned? Ann from InvernessDear Ann: Congratulations on your newest family member. This behavior is quite normal for our canines from young to old; just make sure nothing is being destroyed in the process and the dog does not cause any harm to himself. Many dogs can have pent-up energy that needs to be expended or released sometimes often, depending on the breed. On occasion, excitement can induce the same behavior. Whats interesting about this behavior is many of the dogs will run the same pattern each time. Generally, most pet owners establish an exercise program for their dog, like long walks or taking their dog to dog parks for play with fellow canines. Some owners use swimming as means to provide exercise for their dog. A new and up-coming sport called canine dock diving is areally impressive sight to see the name describes it all. The dogs speedily run to the end of a dock, leaping as far as they can into the air and landing in an above-ground pool of water. They love it. Who knew dogs swimming in pools would develop in to a sport? Lisa Russell has been training dogs for more than 30 years, starting in 1979with the USAF Patrol/ Detector Dog program. In 1984 she opened her first dog training business in Jacksonville, where she has worked with thousand ofdogs andowners, teachingowners how to correct their dogs problem behaviors. She has trained dogs for the show Americas Most Wanted and has made guest appearance on radio and TV. She currently is the co-owner of the Citrus County Dog Training Center in Crystal River, where she lives with her three dogs. Email questions to l.a.russell19@gmail.com.

response for discussing or solving issues, which is really a cold and noncompassionate manner. I dont have text and only a flip phone and am so glad, as I turn it off in the car and it privileges me with time to think (quietly and uninterrupted thought) and rehearse in the car my next want to do job. I would consider it a real shame if I missed the personal moments of kindness exchanged by looking in the eyes of people and noticing the silent body language of how someone reacts to what was said. It seems to me there is not enough time in the day to enjoy the simple, compassionate and relaxing times with others. I guess the easier you go the more quality time you enjoy; my goodness, how time flies.Steve Barnes owns, and along with his shop dog Gypsy, operates Olde Inverness Antiques.

Also, in the U.S.A., they have been popular since the 1960s and s when large numbers became available from nurseries in Holland, he said. Like most spring-blooming bulbs, species tulips should be planted in the fall. Get them in the ground early enough so their roots can develop before the soil freezes. Skip the fertilizers and go easy on the watering. Moisture can be a problem, Curless said. Too much love. Species tulips arent perennials but they do live longer than the familiar standard varieties, with bulbs producing blooms through at least several seasons. Their bloom period ranges from early spring well into June. They perform best in USDA Zones 3 to 7. Shop for labels specifying the genus Tulipa, about 100 species of which have been cloned for domestic use. Look to the low-growing Tulipa tarda for white flowers with a yellow eye. It naturalizes somewhat and tolerates black walnut trees. The Tulipa bakeri has lilac-colored petals with yellow centers, and partners well with dwarf daffodils. Tulipa kaufmanniana is said to resemble a water lily when fully open and is among the first to flower in spring. The Tulipa turkestanica delivers fragrant white petals having orange centers, and is a repeat bloomer. One caution: Although species tulips are better at handling harsh growing conditions than are most modern-day tulip hybrids, theyre just as vulnerable to predation. In my (Connecticut) garden, chipmunks devastate them, Curless said. So will deer, voles and squirrels if they know where they are.

My internal clock is more accurate than weights and gears. My only trouble is getting Dad to hear my alarm.Tempus Fugit is Latin for time flies and can be found on the face of many clocks. The clock is one of the oldest human inventions, meeting the need to consistently measure intervals of time shorter than the natural units: the day, the lunar month and the year. Horology: The science of measuring time. Ed Kendrick, horologist. Antique clocks are popular area of collecting; they are not only beautiful but functional as well. I can only hope they would be used and not just sit on the mantel. There are many types of clocks: mantel, grandfather, grandmother, kitchen, wall, case, marine, cuckoo, banjo, longcase, atmospheric the list goes on. Some quality manufacturers would be Seth Thomas, Howard Miller, Waltham, Chelsea, Ansonia, Gilbert and Ingraham. Prices can range from $50 for a cuckoo to hundreds of thousands for an authentic Simon Willard. (We dont carry that one.) We are most fortunate to have Ed Kendrick as our clock dealer. Ed rents space, sells clocks and makes customer repairs. Being in Eds booth on the hour can be the ultimate multitask challenge; with all the ticktocks, chimes, bells, gongs and cuckoos going off simultaneously, one can get lost. My wife stands in this booth when the clocks are wound down hoping time has stopped.Clackity, clickity, jerks Parts ofclocks with quirks withpivots and gears and springs and tears I put it together and it works??On occasion I have watched Ed perform his magic and some things have rubbed off. Clocks must be balanced, but leave your level in the tool box. Listen to the clock: If you hear TICK-tock or tick-TOCK, its off balance. Work with a penny to balance on one side until its a smooth tick-tock. In many old homes, a kitchen clock was the only clock in the house. The manufacturers made it an annoying loud gong to be heard anywhere in the house and many had alarms to wake the neighbors. This months story is from Ed Kendrick, but Ill leave you with this thought: Time flies like an arrow and fruit flies like a banana. One of the interesting options of any hobby is how close to carry it near business level. As a retired individual, I think most hobbies stand up to the want to do and not the have to do in order to continue from day to day. So, as clocks continue to be my hobby, and in doing what I want to do, I come across some very interesting and fascinating people. Some will call me and tell me the clock I fixed doesnt work at all I get to their house (on the double) and find out it was not wound up. Others just want me to come back and check the clocks and continue the discussions. This is amusing, to say the least, and from a business point of view, time unproductive, but I do remember that any boss in business must have caring leadership to be successful. As a hobby I can take the time to sit and have coffee or tea and laugh about the forgetfulness with someone and discuss solving the worlds problems or simply what is going on in Citrus County. It makes all the difference in the world because the time spent with others in a relaxed and no-hurry atmosphere gives me a perspective on life that is received in no other way. It exemplifies the art of listening that I try to develop. The wisdom shared when someone is casual is priceless often, no bill is given but thank you is quite sufficient, and I leave with a call me if you need me. Seems a far cry from the text Tempus Fugit when youre having fun Steve BarnesTIME WILL TELL See TIME / Page E5

Special to the ChronicleThis antique Ciro-flex camera dates from the Korean war. and was in business from the 1850s to the 1940s. Collectors refer to your clock as an Ogee clock case. Ogee is a wave-like molding with one convex side and the other concave, shaped like the letter S. They were manufactured by many clock companies in massive quantities. Your Waterbury Ogee clock was made during the last quarter of the 19th century. After repair, the clock should keep pretty good time. I suggest you contact Gordon Lambert to have the clock repaired. The phone number is 352591-1729. Dear John: This camera is an item I am considering selling. Attached are a couple photos of it, and I have more photos if need be. My father purchased it during the Korean War. M.A.C., Dunnellon Dear M.A.C.: In the vintage 20th century film camera category, your Ciro-flex camera is low on the totem pole of collector interest. Now is likely not a good time to sell it. To investigate further, check the website www.collectiblecameras. com. Dear John: We have two Rembrandt Masterpiece lamps made from glass and brass. We estimate their age to be perhaps 50 years old. They are in excellent condition, with the exception of the base on the taller lamp, which appears to have been painted and is flaking. The smaller is 29 inches tall, and the larger lamp is 38 inches tall. We would like to sell them and would appreciate your estimate of their value. C.H., Internet Dear C.H.: There is no specific collector interest in the two lamps. If you like them, it would be better to keep them. Potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can.

Joy Holland 352-464-4952 DEANFOSDICK Associated PressMaybe its time to rethink the way we landscape using tulips. True, the familiar, large, gobletshaped blooms make a colorful springtime splash grouped in beds and pots. But those hybrids are softies compared to their wild ancestors species tulips growing in unforgiving sites from Algeria to China. They thrive in problem areas. Tulips are not native to Holland, but growers there over the past 400 years have built an industry around developing hybrids for the commercial trade. Their classic tulips perform best with fertile soil and an ample moisture supply. Thats not the story, however, with clones of the botanical or species tulips. Those you can plant and forget. Neglect them. Sear them under the sun. Simply scratch the small bulbs into some gravel or tuck them into rocky crevices and theyll survive that austerity just as they have the harsh, hardscrabble mountain conditions of Afghanistan, Switzerland, Kazakhstan, Turkey or Mongolia. Wild tulips are better adapted to difficult conditions, said Christian Curless, a horticulturist for the flower bulb company Colorblends.com. Theyre happiest with parched conditions in summer places where the grass dries up, he said. These are the kinds of flowers you can plant in a rock garden or elevated a little bit for good drainage. Botanical tulips differ visibly from their hybrid progeny. They tend, in general, to be smaller finer in flower and in foliage, Curless said. They have more of a starry-eyed look to them. Wild tulips have been trendy in Europe since they were introduced by botanical expeditions in the early Wild tulips a good choice for early color Associated PressTulipa polychroma, a wildtulip, in a remote unforgiving native habitat in the Sahand Mountains of northwestern Iran.

ATTICContinued from Page E6 Bird watching is a popular hobby enjoyed by gardeners, seniors, outdoor enthusiasts, young people and children everyone with a curiosity about nature. Anybody can fill a seed feeder on a pole or an artificial nectar container close to a window and be entertained by garden birds. Even casual observers recognize an eagle, robin, woodpecker, crow, red cardinal or blue jay. Florida has 516 species of birds. Some live here year-round; others are winter residents or transients. Transient birds fly the length of the Florida peninsula en route to northern breeding grounds during spring migration or southern winter homes during fall migration. The American Bird Conservancy estimates there are about 10 billion birds in the U.S. during spring migration and as many as 20 billion during fall migration. In the tri-county area (Citrus, Marion and Levy), more than 250 bird species can be observed. Citrus County alone has over 26 easily reachable birding sites. Pick up a free guide to the western section of the Great Florida Birding Trail at tourist information centers, state parks and national wildlife refuges. Different types of birds depend on different habitats to feed and breed. Songbirds visit garden feeders and can be seen in forests and fields and along roadsides. Gulls, terns and other seabirds cruise the coasts and rest on beaches. Sandpipers and plovers are among shorebirds which search for food on tidal mudflats and beaches. Longlegged waders, like herons and egrets, eat frogs, fish, insects, reptiles and small birds in wetlands and fields. Waterfowl, including pelicans, ducks, geese and swans dive, dabble or upend in search of food. Eagles, falcons, hawks, osprey and owls are birds of prey which catch and eat fish, birds, insects, rodents and other meat. A keen desire and a camera or cellphone is all beginning birders need to get started. Just making a list of the birds you see and can recognize is an excellent start. Visit the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park to take digital pictures of their collection of birds. Read their information signs to learn about the birds that share Florida with us. When you get home, look on the Internet or in a bird book to read a brief paragraph about each species you have photographed.

from a public library before deciding which to buy. Check out the Floridas Fabulous series. Because I travel around North America, my preference is National Geographics Field Guide to the Birds of North America costing under $30 and weighing 32 oz. National Geographics Birds of Eastern North America weighs just 22 oz. Birding binoculars with good optics have become lighter and less expensive. A good binocular with 8Xmagnification and a lens diameter of 42mm, called 8x42, can cost just $150 online with free shipping. Try Eagle Optics for information and pricing. Many brands are made in Asia. Drop in to Citrus County Audubon Societys monthly meeting. The calendar is online at citrus countyaudubon.com. Join their free guided bird walks where avid birders willingly let novices try out binoculars and spotting scopes. Dunnellon Public Library is hosting my informative presentation on local birding on at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4. Geared to local birding for casual, beginning and intermediate birders, my photos were all taken with a pocket camera. There will be a slide show, handouts, door prizes and a question-andanswer session. This is entertainment for seniors, children, teens and adults. Professional photographer Virginia Saltzman of Blue Cove, Dunnellon will have prints for purchase during the presentation. All October the librarys lobby display features bird books, curios and paraphernalia.

Dear Gardener Gal: Im hoping you can help me in selecting the right tree for my yard. Ive done my homework and the perfect tree choice for the conditions in my yard would seem to be a Crape Myrtle. The problem is that these trees seem to demand a lot of pruning, and Im simply not able to do this at my age. Can you suggest another flowering tree that doesnt require so much work? Flowers Yes, Pruning NoDear FY/PN: Im glad you wrote to me instead of asking me this question in person. This way, you dont have to see a very frustrated Master Gardener. This persistent and damaging myth about Crape Myrtles makes all knowledgable gardeners go crazy! The truth is, while no tree is perfect, in the right place and with some thought as to final size, the Crape Myrtle is mighty close. The heavy pruning you have seen your neighbors and, sadly, some professionals do is called Crape Murder. Who started this practice, I have no idea, but it is both unnecessary and harmful to the tree. The University of Florida has an excellent publication titled Stop Crape Murder and another on basic care, complete with a chart to help you choose the right Crape Myrtle based on final size and color of blooms. Your local UF/IFAS Extension Office would be happy to send you a copy or help you find it online. Once you have a beautiful, healthy tree you can help spread the word with your own signature Flowers Yes, Pruning No! Dear Gardener Gal: I really enjoy watching the birds visiting my feeders, but the squirrels are ruining the fun. They not only eat most of the seed, but also chase the birds away. A neighbor suggested putting out peanuts for the squirrels so theyd leave the birdseed alone, but wont that just encourage the little buggers? AntiSquirrel AliceDear Anti-Squirrel Alice: Squirrel Frustrationitis is familiar to all bird lovers and gardeners. While one or two are cute and fun to watch, two dozen digging up your bulbs, upending newly planted annuals and hogging the feeders not so cute. Youre correct in assuming peanuts will draw even more of them to your yard. Actually, one of the quickest ways to discourage squirrels is to switch to a seed not on their wish list. Try Safflower seed. Cardinals, Tufted Titmouses, Chickadees and even some woodpeckers will still come to your free buffet, but the squirrels dont seem to care for it. This seed does cost more per pound than a basic seed mix, but when you factor in what the squirrels have been stealing and possible waste from the birds picking out only their favorites, you actually save money. Some folks have also had good luck with weightsensitive type bird feeders. Feel free to call your local UF/IFAS Extension Office for more suggestions, but hopefully Ive helped put the fun back in your bird watching.Gardener Gal Leslie Derrenbacker is a Master Gardener and Native Floridian.
