The chambers government affairs committee met recently with acting County Administrator Jeff Rogers to discuss the Cent for Citrus referendum on the Nov. 4 ballot. The full board of directors then decided to not support the tax. If voters approve the referendum, money collected from the additional 1 percent sales tax will be used to resurface all county residential roads over the next 20 years. Chamber officials say the tax request is poorly timed, considering the county is undergoing an impact fee study and could benefit from tax support from the Duke Energy natural gas plant. There are too many moving pieces to the puzzle, said Josh Wooten, chamber president and chief executive officer. We felt they didnt give it enough time to sell it. They didnt give the public much time to absorb it. According to a chamber of commerce letter to county officials, the sales tax might not be necessary for resurfacing neighborhood roads because of additional property tax revenue Mailer goofs with absentee ballot infoA committee associated with Gov. Rick Scotts re-election campaign sent out mail pieces telling voters to hurry up and mail back their absentee ballots for the Nov. 4 election. The problem is, the supervisors of elections had not sent out absentee ballots until today. Citrus County Supervisor of Elections Susan Gill said her office received more than 70 calls from confused voters Monday morning who had received the Lets Get to Work mail piece and wondered why they didnt yet have an absentee ballot. Gills employees told callers the mail piece was incorrect and that absentee ballots would begin being mailed out on Tuesday, the earliest date set by state law. Gill emailed the mail piece to the Florida Division of Elections. Assistant Director of Elections Gary Holland sent an email to Lets Get to Work coordinator John French, calling his attention to the error. If you can do something to correct the misstatement in the mailer, Holland wrote, it would be appreciated. Mike Wright/ staff writer Josh Wootenchamber president and CEO said the tax is poorly timed. Dennis Damatocommissioner said the chamber makes some good points. Group says the 1 percent for road resurfacing would create an undue burden See TAX / Page A7 NEW BRIEFS Savoring freedom, decades later News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE State utility regulators would have to give formal approval before Duke Energy Florida or any other power company could again hike customer bills through a temporary billing-cycle extension, under a measure being worked on by state Sen. Charlie Dean, R-Inverness. Deans office announced Monday that the senator is planning a pair of utilityrelated proposals for the 2015 legislative session, including one that would require approval by the state Public Service Commission before the start of any billing-cycle extensions that are not emergency related. The current proposal in drafting will require any pre-approval except for issues related to a state of emergency issued by the governor, Deans legislative assistant Chase Daniels said in an email. Deans bill is being crafted because of the nearly completed effort by Duke Charlie Deanstate senator. Dean seeks to rein in utility-bill extensions JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDoris Ingersoll pins the Prisoner of War Service Medal on World War II veteran Ralph Lamb on Sept. 19 at The Ride Home ceremony in Americus, Georgia. Lamb and his unit were captured by the German army during the Battle of the Bulge. Lamb was a POW for 144 days during his service in the U.S. Army. Standing behind Lamb is Kathy Kat McLaughlin. Man recalls days as a WWII POW JEFFBRYAN Riverland NewsRalph Lamb doesnt boast about his time in the U.S. Army during World War II, but no one could blame him if he did. After all, the now95-year-old served in the famed 3rd Armored Division, which was led by both Gen. George S. Patton and at times Gen. Omar Bradley, if Gen. Patton had drawn the ire of his superiors, which was often. I never saw either one of them, said Lamb, who has lived in Lake Tropicana near Dunnellon for nearly 30 years. Patton was a wild man. Every other word out of his mouth was typically a swear word, while Bradley was a church guy. They were two different styles of men, but they got the job done. Lamb recalls the first battle he and his unit were involved in, a few months after D-Day, the well-chronicled invasion of Europe on June 6, 1944. Lamb said the 3rd Armored Division was slugging it out with the Germans in France. During the skirmish, six tanks were lost in the fray, prompting Pattons supervisors to show their displeasure. I remember they wanted him out of there, Lamb said. Still, Pattons tactical JEFFBRYAN Riverland NewsAMERICUS, Ga. The surprise was evident on Ralph Lambs face on Sept. 19 when he walked into the Storm Dome at Georgia Southwestern State University for The Ride Home, an annual event celebrating National POW/MIA Recognition Day. There to greet Lamb were his son, Ralph Buddy Lamb, and his granddaughter Debbie Marshall. That was just the beginning of the surprises in store for Lamb, who served in the U.S. Army from 1942 to 1945 was captured by German forces in December 1944. Little did Lamb know he would be asked to take center stage for a long-overdue medal presentation for the 95-year-old former prisoner of war (POW), as Kathy Kat McLaughlin had learned in the past few months Lamb had never been presented with his POW Service Medal. McLaughlin quickly went to work to remedy the situation. McLaughlin, an officer with the Florida chapter of The Ride Home, reached out to U.S. Rep. Ted Yohos office and explained Lambs situation in detail with members of the Senator preparing pair of proposals for 2015 See DEAN/ Page A2 See MEDAL/ Page A2Veteran receives long-overdue medal See POW/ Page A10

They went to work just as quickly, making sure Lamb wouldnt be denied his medal. The process went smoothly, and the congressman had a member of his office personally deliver the medal to McLaughlin the day of the event. So, with the evenings festivities well underway, McLaughlin took the stage to share Lambs story about his capture during the Battle of the Bulge. Thats when she also shared that the World War II veteran had yet to receive his POW Service Medal. But the 69-year, 4month and 13-day wait was about to end for Lamb. According to records shared with Yohos office, a spokeswoman said Lamb is the oldest surviving POW to be awarded this medal. As Lamb was escorted to the stage, the thunderous applause from the more than 200 in attendance shook the rafters above. Lamb showed he still has plenty of spunk. Now, theres no cotton pickin way Im the oldest, he told the crowd, who responded with laughter and applause as his medal was pinned on his jacket. Lamb said he hopes hes able to attend at least five more of The Ride Home events. I think it would be enjoyable to celebrate the big 1-0-0 here, he said, holding his hand up to show the number five. If the good Lord allows me, I plan on being here. Following the medal presentation, Lamb was given an American flag on behalf of Yoho as well as a proclamation thanking the veteran for his service during World War II. Lamb was taken aback by the attention. Im very surprised, very surprised, said Lamb, also a Purple Heart recipient. MEDALContinued from Page A1 Energy to remap its meterreading routes. A commission rule allows Duke to extend monthly billing cycles while the utility changes meter-reading routes and billing dates. We look forward to reviewing Senator Deans proposed legislation once it is filed, Duke spokesman Sterling Ivey said in an email Monday. Since May 2013, Duke has been revising the routes for meter readers from Orlando to just outside of Tallahassee. The rerouting has resulted in about 208,000 Duke customers getting higher-than-usual monthly bills because extra days of standard electricity use were added to a single bill. Duke customers are charged $11.34 for every 100 kilowatt hours of use up to 1,000 kilowatt hours. The rate jumps to $13.70 for each 100 kilowatt hours after the 1,000 kilowatt mark. The temporary increase has so far averaged $5.62 for those hit with a higher monthly bill, ranging from a low of 2 cents to a high of $23.60, according to Duke Energy figures. An outcry about the billing change erupted in August as the rerouting reached the TampaSt. Petersburg region. The outcry, which drew the attention of Sens. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, and Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, resulted in Duke announcing it would credit those customers impacted by the extended billing cycle. Through early September the company has credited approximately $1.3 million to Florida customers, Ivey said in the email. On Sept. 4, Dean, whose sprawling, largely rural district has about 125,000 Duke customers, offered to carry legislation for state utility regulators to prevent utilities from again simply using the existing state rule. Instead, members of the Public Service Commission decided to hold a workshop early next year to determine if they think a rewrite is needed.

EDC spotlights local industry Road work begins MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleWork is slowly starting on a $1.7 million resurfacing project on State Road 44 from just west of County Road 581 to Cherry Avenue in Inverness. The work officially started last week and is expected to conclude in spring 2015. Around that same time next year, the state Department of Transportation is expected to begin a similar resurfacing project from Cherry Avenue to U.S. 41 at State Road 44 East. BUSTERTHOMPSON Staff writerScammers will do almost anything to con people theyll even use voice recordings of a relative, supposedly in danger, to collect money from a frantic family member. Jim Schidner was working on a recent morning on his antique car when he heard the phone ring. It was the voice of his grandson telling him he ran into some trouble and needed money or else he would be going to jail. Schidner would later discover it was a recording of his grandsons voice being played on the other line. It was one of my grandsons, definitely, no question about it, Schidner said. I tried to talk to him, and he wasnt hearing me, but I heard him perfectly. A few minutes later the phone rang. This time the caller said he was an attorney representing Schidners grandson. The lawyer gave Schidner a false name and informed him his grandson went to a friends funeral in Las Vegas where he was later arrested because he crashed his car while driving under the influence of alcohol. Hes never had any problems, hes been a great guy, Schidner said about his grandson a thirdyear law student at Florida State University. Schidner was given directions about how to wire money via a telegram to an address in the Dominican Republic, being told to do so in the next two hours or else his grandson would go to jail. He almost had me believe him, he was a good salesman, Schidner said. The time difference is what gave me doubts. Las Vegas is three hours behind, making it about 6:30 a.m. Pacific Time when Schidners supposed grandson called. Schidner managed to get in touch with his son, the father of his grandson, who told him that his son was on a plane to Tallahassee. When Schidner did contact his grandson, the law student passed on his grandfathers encounter to his employer, the Florida Attorney Generals Office. Schidner also called the Citrus County Sheriffs Office and reported the scam. Officials with the sheriffs offices Seniors vs. Crime office a Beverly Hills-based organization designed to combat scams and fraudulent companies have seen this method before but still question how a voice recording or something similar can be obtained. It puts the person in a state of fear, senior affairs coordinator Lee Alexander said. Its never actually the real voice. Alexander advises those who receive such calls to write down any phone number and names associated with the call and immediately contact the family member whos purportedly in danger before sending any money. Schidner is still unsure how his grandsons voice was recorded, but is glad he didnt fall for it. They definitely had a recording of my grandson, they have this ability, Schidner said. They had a sales pitch, though.Contact Chronicle reporter Buster Thompson at 352-564-2916 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Workshop slated for transportation plans Long-range goals to be focus Associated PressBELL Floridas child welfare agency was warned in 2013 that a man should be kept away from the daughter and six grandchildren whom he later killed, Alachua Countys sheriff told a newspaper. Last year, three of the six children killed were interviewed by a child protection team that warned Floridas Department of Children and Families that Don Spirit should have no contact with his grandchildren, Sheriff Sadie Darnell told The Gainesville Sun.On Sept. 18, Spirit shot 28-year-old Sarah Spirit, and her six children: Kaleb Kuhlmann, 11; Kylie Kuhlmann, 9; Johnathon Kuhlmann, 8; Destiny Stewart, 5; Brandon Stewart, 4; and Alanna Stewart, who was born in June, in Bell before killing himself. Darnell said DCF was warned during the 2013 child abuse investigation by a University of Florida child protection team. And DCF was advised (for the children) not to have contact with the grandfather, Darnell said. State officials refused to confirm to the newspaper that they interviewed the children, citing confidentiality laws. The child protection team responded after Spirits ex-wife, Christine Jeffers, called authorities in an attempt to protect her grandchildren, telling a deputy that Don Spirit suffered from bipolar disorder. At the time of the shooting, Don Spirit was well-known to local authorities: He had a previous felony conviction related to the accidental shooting of his son during a hunting trip. In 2008, Sarah Spirit had filed a police report claiming he hit her while she was pregnant. In the Alachua County sheriffs report of the 2013 child abuse interview, Sarah Spirit told a deputy she had seen guns in her fathers possession. As a former felon, he was not legally allowed to have firearms. It is unclear what, if anything, DCF did in response to the warning.

Associated PressNEW YORK When the economy tanks, women have fewer babies. But what happens in the following years, when conditions improve? A massive new study suggests that for some U.S. women, living through a recession can mean they will never have children. In fact, the authors project that among women who were in their early 20s in 2008 early in the so-called Great Recession about 151,000 will forgo having any children as a result, at least by age 40. Overall, the lingering impact of that recession may ultimately mean some 427,000 fewer children being born over the course of a couple of decades, the authors say. On a societal level these effects are small. The projected number of childless women is a tiny fraction of the 9million women in that age group, 20 to 24. The drop-off in births isnt much for a nation that produces around 4million babies a year. But the results still show a pretty profound effect on some womens lives, said study author Janet Currie, a health economist at Princeton University. Currie and colleague Hannes Schwandt present their analysis in a paper released Monday by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. Past studies have generally shown women cut back on having babies when unemployment rises. In fact, tough economic conditions including the Great Recession are blamed for a five-year drop in the number of babies born in the U.S., starting in 2007. The idea is that during such times, many couples feel they cant afford to start or add to a family. The births decline ended with a slight increase last year. For the new study, researchers used birth records and census data to track the reproductive histories up to age 40 for every woman born in the U.S. from 1961 to 1970. Thats about 18million people. To look for an effect from the economy, researchers compared the timing of when babies were conceived to unemployment levels at that time. Only conceptions that led to live births could be tracked. They looked for evidence that women who defer having children during tough times make up for it later on, ending up with the same number they would have had otherwise. We were just trying to measure how much catchup there was, Currie said in a telephone interview. When the research showed a shortfall for women who experience those tough times at ages 20 to 24, we were surprised. Currie said many women at that age are at a crossroads in deciding whether to get married and have children. Poor economic times may discourage many women from doing so, and once the economy improves and the women have gotten older, they may be less likely to go ahead, she speculated. Other studies show that men who take a first job during a recession often get locked into lower earnings for the rest of their lives, so maybe those potential mates become less attractive to women, Currie said. No long-term effect on childbearing appeared for women of other ages. Dan Black, an economic demographer at the University of Chicago who had no role in the new study, said the finding of an effect on childlessness makes sense to him. If a recession derails a womans plans to have children in her early 20s, the prospect may become less appealing later because of things like career considerations or a breakup with her romantic partner, he said. Things happen in life. Life can evolve in very complicated ways, he said. John Casterline, an Ohio State University professor who studies childbearing patterns, said the long-term effect of the Great Recession on births is small but still remarkable. The train leaves the station. If youre not on it, youve missed your chance, he said. This is a pretty amazing result. William Gunn, 55William James Gunn,55, went to be with his Lord on Sept.26, 2014. William was born Sept.12, 1959, in Jacksonville, Florida, to the late Artis Gunn Sr. and Geneva (Moore) Gunn Savage. He served our country in the U.S. Army. William was a gifted music writer and composer, playing the guitar and performing in the Brevard Theater and the performing arts community. He dearly loved the Lord and his ministry was performing for the residents of many local nursing homes. He worked at the Washington Square Convalescent Home in Titusville and the Key Training Center in Lecanto. He was dearly loved by his family and friends and will be deeply missed by all whose lives he touched. Left to cherish his memory is his soul mate, Shirley Bohn; brother Artis Gunn Jr. (Cheri), Titusville; sisters Janice (David) Warren, Crystal River, and Elizabeth (Calvin) Canada, Mims; stepmother JoAnn Gunn; and stepsiblings Roland Benoit, Lee B. Johnson, Annette (Alan) ScottWatson, Lynne Mularkey, Lori-Jean Nenson; his aunt, Clematis Clark; and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, greatnephews and cousins.

TAXContinued from Page A1 USDA tells Panhandle zoo to make improvements Associated PressCRESTVIEW Authorities are warning the caretakers of a Florida Panhandle zoo to obtain proper permits and make significant improvements for its animals. The Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge took over the aging Crestview zoo in 2012. Board chairman Matt McGee said the zoo came with a lot of problems. The Northwest Florida DailyNews reported that an inspection last month by the U.S. Department of Agriculture noted that while improvements are being made, deficiencies remained. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission also has threatened to take action against the zoo if a permit issue isnt resolved soon. A permit held by the zoos former owner expired in May. According to a USDA veterinarian, the design of some enclosures prevented zookeepers from getting close enough to administer treatments to some animals, including two wolves and a baboon that need treatment for worms. The USDA report also noted that the tails of two primates had to be amputated because the animals suffered frostbite when they were let out of their cages in below-freezing temperatures in February. Zoo officials told the newspaper that the USDA inspector did recognize the improvements made since 2012, when its former owners acknowledged they were overwhelmed. He said from his perspective we took a zoo from being a terrible, derelict structure and brought it up. He said we were doing an outstanding job, said the refuges assistant director, Susan Laveille. He said, As long as we know what youre doing for these animals well work with you. For example, a black bear named Alfred that hadnt had grass or soil in its enclosure for more than 20 years now has a new shelter, dirt to sprawl in and a female bear companion. New exhibits also have opened for the zoos wallaby and its wolves, and exhibits for otters, lemurs and Patas monkeys are in progress. More zookeepers and trainers also are working with the animals, including two tigers and a lion named Levi. State BRIEF Florida education board wants hike for schoolsTAMPA The state board that oversees Floridas schools wants a boost in school funding for 2015. The State Board of Education voted Monday to ask state legislators to approve a $19.6 billion budget for Floridas public schools. The increase includes a $232 increase in perpupil funding to match what Gov. Rick Scott has already proposed on the campaign trail. The budget proposal also mirrors Scotts push to double the amount spent on digital learning initiatives. State legislators will consider the request during the 2015 session that starts next spring. The boost in school funding, however, would require more money coming from local property taxes in order to pay for the request. The proposal would require local school districts to collect an additional $382 million in property taxes. From wire reports

Associated PressWASHINGTON Once shunned by the United States, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi rode a wave of enthusiasm and popular support Monday to the White House, where he kicked off a two-day visit with President Barack Obama. The two leaders sought to put a brave face on the relationship despite widespread concerns that U.S.-Indian ties have frayed in recent years. Modis visit started with a private dinner with Obama on Monday evening, the day after thousands of IndianAmericans flocked to New Yorks Madison Square Garden for a rare chance to see the new leader of the worlds largest democracy. The dazzling Bollywood-style dancers and dozens of U.S. lawmakers that took part in that event highlighted the rock star welcome that Modi is enjoying on his first official visit to the U.S. since being elected in May. It wasnt always so. When Modi requested a visa to visit the United States nearly a decade ago, Washington said no. That rejection came three years after religious riots killed more than 1,000 Muslims in the state of Gujarat, where Modi was the top elected official. Another potential wrinkle in Modis visit: A human rights group is offering $10,000 to anyone who can serve Modi with a summons issued by a federal court in New York to respond to a lawsuit the group filed accusing him of serious abuses. The lawsuit is on behalf of two unnamed survivors of the violence. Modi has denied involvement in the violence and Indias Supreme Court has said there was no case to bring against him. As a head of state, Modi has immunity from lawsuits in U.S. courts. And White House officials said they doubted the issue would cloud the visit. Whether its security and counterterrorism or strengthening the economy or a host of other regional issues, there is a broad framework where India and the U.S. work closely together to advance our shared interests, said White House spokesman Josh Earnest. Obama and Modi broke the ice over dinner Monday as they sought to reinvigorate soured relations between their countries. Joining them in the Blue Room was Vice President Joe Biden, who also attended a State Department lunch with Modi and Secretary of State John Kerry earlier in the day. But there was one small issue: Modi is fasting to honor the Hindu goddess Durga and is consuming only water or lemonflavored water. The White House said Modis dietary needs would be accommodated, but offered no details. During their talks, Obama and Modi will focus on economic growth and cooperation on security, clean energy, climate change and other issues, the White House said. They will also address regional concerns, including Afghanistan, where the U.S. is wrapping up its 13-year military involvement, and Syria and Iraq, where the U.S. is ramping up its military engagement as Obama builds an international coalition to target Islamic State militants operating in the both countries. Obama visited India in 2010 and held up the U.S.India relationship as the defining partnership of the 21st century. But the relationship has been lukewarm at best. While military cooperation and U.S. defense sales have grown, the economic relationship has been rockier, with Washington frustrated by Indias failure to open its economy to more foreign investment and address complaints over intellectual property violations. A major aspect of this weeks visit is the chance for Obama and Modi to begin building rapport, administration officials said. Obama was among the first Western leaders to telephone Modi with congratulations after his Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party swept into power after Mays landslide vote.WORLDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, SEPTEMBER30, 2014 A9 000J54E License #DN 17606 General & Cosmetic Dentistry HONEST PROFESSIONAL COMPASSIONATE General & Cosmetic Dentistry General & Cosmetic Dentistry HONEST PROFESSIONAL COMPASSIONATE HONEST PROFESSIONAL COMPASSIONATE Experience the Difference Whether youre looking for a smile makeover or a cleaning our friendly staff will make you feel comfortable without the sales tactics or the lecture.

As a boy growing up in post-war Germany, Klaus Menkes father did as most German fathers did when a son reached a certain age. Back in those days when I grew up, you only went to school for eight years, and you graduated when you were 14 or 15, Menke said. About a year prior to your graduation, your dad would pull you aside to talk to you about the birds and the bees. At the same time, it was time to decide what youre going to do with your life. When his time came, Menke chose to become a butcher. The rule over there was you had to learn a trade, he said. You were a baker or plumber or mason. You learned the entire trade from the ground up, and by age 18 you have a profession under your belt you know what youre doing. Menke, 71, who owns Klaus Deutsche Korner inside Eyepoppin Cheesesteaks & Hoagies in Inverness, still has his 1955 trade manual, his butchers bible. First thing you learn is the bone structure of all the different animals lambs, sheep, cows and all the different breeds, he said. You learn about animal diseases, about every piece of equipment. After the first year you learn meat processing. Menke said in the U.S., butchering is a dying trade, although its still being taught in Germany. Today, supermarkets employ meat cutters, but not necessarily butchers. A butcher knows the animal from the time its born until its salami hanging from a hook, Menke said. tn-tffrAsk for the Butcher Our Own Homemade Sausage....(asst. flavors) $4.19 lb.Ground Chuck...........................................................$4.19 lb.Pork Steaks or Country Pork Ribs..................$3.09 lb.Frozen New Zealand Goat Meat (Cut for Curry)$3.99 lb.Frozen Precut Oxtail..............................................$5.19 lb.Gator Tail Meat (chunks, frozen) ......................$14.99 lb.

skills on the war front were needed, said Lamb, who worked in anti-aircraft artillery, mostly 50-caliber machine guns. When he arrived at the 3rd Armored Division, most of the 50caliber guns were installed on halftracks. I could take them apart, fix them and put them back together in a matter of minutes, he said.BADBREAKTo this day, Lamb can still remember how he broke his leg in December 1944. The then-private along with his unit were scrambling to avoid a barrage of mortar fire when he and several of his comrades scaled a 7foot wall and leapt to the ground, with a full field pack and a gun. A week removed from breaking his right leg, doctors sent Lamb back to the front line, despite the then-25-year-old questioning how he could walk with a broken leg and severely swollen ankle. I told the field doctors I couldnt walk, and they just asked me, How do you know if you dont try? he recalled about the December 1944 conversation with the field doctor. The doc said I was OK, so I went back to my outfit with a broken leg. Lamb regrouped with his unit, which was part of the 3rd Armored Division, to find out they were preparing to provide support to the 101st Airborne in the Ardennes Forest during the Battle of the Bulge. As Lambs unit made its way into Belgium, they were overrun by a division of Germans and taken as prisoners a week after his return to the front line. Along with his unit, Lamb and his broken leg were forced to make a twoweek, 579-mile march from Belgium to Neubrandenburg, Germany. Lamb knew better than to attempt to address his injury with the German army. During his time as a POW, Lamb was held at Stalag XII-A in Hesse, Germany. Shortly after arriving at Stalag XII-A, Lamb was one of 100 men selected to help repair a railroad bed located in Werdau, Germany. He would spend his remaining time as a POW there. All told, Lamb spent 144 days as a POW during World War II. You didnt complain when you had a gun pointed at your head, Lamb said of the journey into Germany, noting it wasnt the last time a German would point a weapon at either him or other members of his unit. During his time in Werdau, Lamb and the others chosen to work on the rail bed were forced to work Mondays through Fridays in a cotton mill; then on Saturdays and Sundays, they worked to help repair a much-needed rail bed for the German army. Food was just as scarce in the POW camp as it was during their forced march into Germany, Lamb said. We worked for this old German in that mill, we werent working for the army, Lamb said. So we complained one day about not being given enough food to eat. That old man pulled out a gun and pointed it at us. We couldnt understand what he was saying, but we got the message loud and clear. We went back to work. There was no use arguing when you had a gun pointed at your head. Because there was no breakfast, except a single cup of coffee Lamb described as miserable, or lunch, he and his fellow POWs made do with what they were given, which was very little. Typically, the Germans provided a bushel of either potatoes or turnips for the 100 men to share. We made soup, if thats what you want to call it, Lamb said, explaining how they stretched their food. I can tell you I didnt eat any turnips when I returned to the States.FREEDOMIt wasnt until late April when Lamb and the other members of his unit were liberated from their POW camp in Werdau. The Germans were leaving in a hurry, he said. Our guys came in, provided aid and left us there. With no means to defend themselves, Lamb said he and the other men remaining at the camp broke into city hall to find whatever weapons, ammunition and other supplies they could to defend themselves.STATESIDERETURNAfter the war ended, Lamb opted to not return to his native Pennsylvania, settling in Orlando with his wife and son, Ralph Buddy Lamb, who hed last seen prior to his deployment to the European Theater. Lamb secured a job with the city of Orlando as a plumber, having worked for the city until his retirement in 1985. He remembers his first months working for the city when he had to ask his supervisor to send him to a different job site. I had a hard time adjusting when I got back, he said, noting eating turnips wasnt the lone problem. The first job site I was on, the supervisor was a big German. He had a very, very thick accent. I came back and asked the supervisor in the office not to send me back to that site, to send me elsewhere, because if he sent me back, I told him I was going to kill that guy with a shovel. Now that was right after I had returned. You begin to lose that animosity after a few years. You learn to live with whoever youre around, but it takes a little time. Lamb does not consider himself a hero despite his service during World War II. The true heroes are the ones who didnt make it back, he said. They are the real heroes.

Football commands highest TV ad pricesNEW YORK Pro football pays the bills in prime-time television. NBCs Sunday Night Football charges $627,300 for a 30-second advertisement, more than any other program in prime-time broadcast television, according to a survey by Advertising Age. On its heels is CBS new Thursday night football telecast, being shown this fall for the first time, at $483,333. Televisions top-rated comedy, The Big Bang Theory, is the scripted show with the priciest ads, at $344,827, Advertising Age said. Otherwise, ad prices dont always mesh with the Nielsen companys measurements of which programs get the biggest audience. Thats because advertisers pay a premium to reach a younger audience For instance, CBS NCIS is often televisions most-watched scripted show each week, certainly the most popular drama. But with an ad price of $170,948, it didnt make the top 10 of Advertising Ages most expensive shows in which to buy commercial time. NBCs The Black List, a hit in its second season, is the priciest drama with an ad price of $285,975. NBCs The Voice on Monday night gets $274,157 per 30-second spot.Fed report: IRS bungles hunt for unpaid taxesWASHINGTON The IRS failed to take all required steps for collecting unpaid taxes from people it cant locate in over half the cases that investigators studied, according to a federal report released Monday. The study does not estimate how much money that costs the government overall. But it says that in 2012, the IRS declared $6.7billion in unpaid taxes to be uncollectable involving nearly 483,000 tax returns because it couldnt find the taxpayer. Of that total, the investigators estimated that $1.9 billion was in returns on which agency workers failed to conduct all the required probing to find the people who owed the money. In tracking down those with overdue bills, IRS workers are supposed to take up to 10 actions like tracing postal, motor vehicle, court and other records. But in a study of 250 cases involving self-employed people and small businesses, investigators said that 57percent of the time, they found no evidence that agency workers had completed all required research before declaring the money uncollectable. In addition, 7percent of the cases lacked a required, public warning that the government was putting a lien on a taxpayers property, according to the report. The report was written by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, which audits the IRS. IRS officials said that they generally agreed with the report but contested some of its findings. They took issue with investigators estimate of the value of some of the unpaid taxes, saying it overstates the amount of potential unprotected revenue when lien notices are not filed, they said Monday.Ford shares fall as company lowers Europe outlookDEARBORN, Mich. Ford shares tumbled Monday after the automaker said it will fall short of its full-year profit goals. At a conference for investors, the automaker said it expects a pretax profit of around $6billion this year, down from the $7billion to $8billion it previously forecast. Chief Financial Officer Bob Shanks said record profits in North America arent enough to offset trouble in South America, where Ford expects to lose $1billion this year, and Russia, where falling sales and the rapid deterioration of the ruble took the company by surprise. Warranty costs including a $500 million charge for last weeks recall of 850,000 vehicles for defective air bags are also higher than expected. We know this year is going to be short of plan, but we also have to keep an eye on the future, Shanks said. Shanks said Ford expects a pretax profit of $8.5billion to $9.5billion in 2015, based partly upon an expected recovery in South America and improvement in warranty costs. The company also plans fewer vehicle introductions in 2015, which will cut costs. Ford is introducing 23 vehicles worldwide this year; next year, it plans to introduce 16.ATM fees keep climbing, survey saysLOS ANGELES The penalty for using an ATM that is not affiliated with your bank rose 5 percent over the past year. The average fee for using an out-of-network ATM climbed to a new high of $4.35 per transaction, according to a survey released Monday by Bankrate.com. That figure includes $2.77 that banks charge non-customers and $1.58 that banks levy against their own customers for using an outside ATM. Overdraft fees also surged, rising on average over the past 12 months to $32.74. Thats the 16th consecutive record high, the firm said. Checking account fees have been increasing as lenders adjust to federal banking laws and regulations enacted after the 2008 financial crisis.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, SEPTEMBER30, 2014 A11 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,800 1,850 1,900 1,950 2,000 2,050 S AMJJA 1,960 2,000 2,040 S&P 500Close: 1,977.80 Change: -5.05 (-0.3%) 10 DAYS 16,000 16,400 16,800 17,200 17,600 S AMJJA 16,920 17,140 17,360 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 17,071.22 Change: -41.93 (-0.2%) 10 DAYSAdvanced1297 Declined1834 New Highs29 New Lows178 Vol. (in mil.)3,015 Pvs. Volume2,860 1,655 1,576 1180 1499 37 131 NYSE NASD DOW17107.6916934.4317071.22-41.93-0.24%+2.98% DOW Trans.8506.568392.188498.08+13.17+0.16%+14.83% DOW Util.551.11544.37550.79+2.84+0.52%+12.28% NYSE Comp.10766.1310687.9310749.05-49.83-0.46%+3.35% NASDAQ4515.244464.444505.85-6.34-0.14%+7.88% S&P5001981.281964.041977.80-5.05-0.25%+7.00% S&P4001385.191373.401383.40-2.76-0.20%+3.04% Wilshire 500020885.6720688.4620842.01-43.66-0.21%+5.76% Russell 20001120.551107.811117.91-1.42-0.13%-3.93% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Dacie Point, Lecanto Hwy. 491 Next To Suncoast Dermatology 746-3420 US stocks head lower Associated PressNEW YORK Concerns over high stock prices and global politics continued to plague markets Monday as major stock indexes ended with slight losses in another day of choppy trading. Prodemocracy protests in Hong Kong, a major world financial center, added to the host of political concerns on investors minds. It could have been worse. The Dow Jones industrial average sank 178points in the opening minutes, a sudden drop of 1percent, but then it climbed back. You have a ton of risks that have brought back in the markets focus, said Brad McMillan, chief investment officer for Commonwealth Financial in Waltham, Massachusetts. Theres just a heck of a lot of uncertainty right now. The Dow lost 41.93points, or 0.2percent, to 17,071.22. The Standard & Poors 500 index lost 5.05points, or 0.3percent, to 1,977.80. The Nasdaq composite slipped 6.34points, or 0.1percent, to 4,505.85. DreamWorks Animation, the studio behind Shrek and Madagascar, soared 26percent following reports that Japans SoftBank Corp. is in talks to buy the company. DreamWorks gained $5.82 to $28.18. The market has turned choppy in recent weeks, flipping between solid gains and steep losses. Since hitting a record on Sept. 18, the S&P 500 has slipped 1.7percent. Coming after a calm summer, the slide has set off a flurry of worried calls to brokerages. John Canally, chief economic strategist at LPL Financial in Boston, said many investors think the market has gone too long without a major fall. I cant tell you how many calls were getting now asking, Is this it? Is this the big one? he said. One reason for the recent turbulence is that the stock market appears priced for perfection, McMillan said. Its an increasingly common saying among investors, and it means the S&P 500 is so high that corporate profits and the economy have to keep improving just to sustain current prices. Good news isnt enough. The price of oil rose amid signs that U.S. refineries are demanding more crude oil to boost output of gasoline. Benchmark U.S. oil gained $1.03 to $94.57 a barrel. Gasoline futures increased 3.44 cents to $2.696 a gallon.

OPINION Page A12TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2014 Commissioners not listeningAt two BOCC meetings, the citizens begged the commission not to vote in favor of purchasing the building at Meadowcrest, giving intelligent fact-filled reasons. Yet, once again, Damato, Meek and Kenney did not listen to the people they were supposed to represent. Why are we not surprised? This has become the norm for this commissions majority. They think they know better than the people, that our knowledge of county issues is inferior to theirs. Their special interests have stuck us with the financial disasters of Port Citrus, a medical corridor, the fire MSBU to name a few, and now Meadowcrest. The county taxpayers cannot afford these mistakes. We cant expect miracles when the new commissioners are seated as it will take time to correct so many hits on our financial status, but at least, there will be a glimmer of hope for 2015. We know they will listen (three of them, anyway), and that will make a huge difference. It will be so great to go to a BOCC meeting and walk out at the end with a smile on our faces. Damato once said that he was elected to think for us. He didnt have that right then and he certainly doesnt now. It will be good to have people up on that dais who actually not only listen to the people, but hear what we are saying. November cant come soon enough.Gail Jannarone Crystal River CHICAGOThe trains still screech on the elevated tracks of the Loop. The crowds still gather along the packed streets outside the iconic popcorn and nut outlets. The sweet-cheese pierogi and the borscht still are crowd favorites in the citys Polish restaurants. Chicago never felt so normal as it did last week. This is the paradox of our time: The United States is in a war, but Americans arent at war. We are speaking, of course, of the American initiative against the Islamic State, different not only from the American conflicts in the two World Wars and the two major Asian wars of the last century, but also different from the American wars in Iraq and Afghanistan of this century. And we are using the word war because the Obama administration, in a subtle but important rhetorical adjustment, abruptly substituted at war for counterterrorism a few days ago. In the military actions in both Iraq and Afghanistan, the foes after the initial engagements were rebel groups or terror cells without traditional national status. That, of course, is true with the struggle against the Islamic State. But while American presidents sent American troops onto foreign soil in Iraq and Afghanistan, no American GIs will be on the ground in Syria or in the parts of Iraq occupied by the Islamic State. None, at least, for now unless the situations worsen. There have been other occasions when the United States was in a war without Americans being at war. That is probably true of the Mexican-American War and the Spanish-American War, but of hardly any other conflict. Those two wars involved American soldiers fighting in isolated locales for relatively short periods of war during which there were limited privations at home and, in fact, little evidence of war at home besides, of course, the isolated homes where families mourned their wartime losses. Not so in almost every other major American military engagement. The Revolutionary War was fought on the East Coast, and the War of 1812 endangered the ports of New England, the capital at Washington and the Great Lakes region. The Civil War had both military and civilian fronts, especially in the border states and in the South, where the devastation was the most severe. Both World Wars were such monumental efforts that virtually every family was affected, either by war work or by virtue of having brothers, sisters, fathers or mothers actually deployed abroad or in support roles domestically. The same was true in the conflicts in Korea and Vietnam. Even the so-called Indian wars of the 19th century exposed American civilians, on the frontier at least, to danger and perhaps death, and the target of those military engagements were, by many definitions, Americans. The current war involves the vast majority of Americans only if and this is what the struggle against the Islamic State is designed to prevent our terrorist foes bring the battle to our shores. They might, of course, and that is part of the risk of engagement, and maybe even a greater risk of not engaging. But at least when this column was typed, we are speaking of a fight on a distant continent, which is the way we like our wars. Until terrorist groups intruded, that was the prerogative of a superpower: away games only, no home engagements. Despite the implicit threat to what is now called the American homeland, the conflicts in the Middle East and central Asia seemed like affairs faraway. On many days, when principally clandestine American forces were at work, they seemed almost like ramped-up analogues to United States involvement in the coups in Iran in 1953 and Guatemala in 1954. But the terrorist attacks of 2001 changed more than our outlook; they changed our vocabulary, as well. Until 2001, that evocative word homeland was customarily applied in the Western Hemisphere to the countries of Americans immigrant forebears, rarely to the United States itself, and it was employed far more in fiction than in fighting. It was more appropriate to the novel A Tree Grows in Brooklyn than to the notion that a military commitment was growing in central Asia. A peculiar case of congressional disengagement only underlined that unsettling quality. Though there were debates and votes on Capitol Hill last week, the lawmakers were dealing with authorization for the training of Syrian rebels. The president still has vast latitude in his fight against the Islamic State, in part because that fight right now seems popular and urgent. Even so, a Congress that has held more than 50votes on Obamacare efforts to repeal or de-fund the measure have become routine in the House seems uneasy with intruding on White House prerogatives in national security affairs. That may change after this autumns midterm congressional elections. But until and unless that happens, congressional uneasiness actually has given the president freer reign, in effect affirming the presidents views of what those White House prerogatives are. There are two ironies here, both with important constitutional implications. One is that Congress, especially the House, is content to let Obama expand the powers of the presidency even as it seeks in other realms to thwart his will and block his priorities and appointments. One day the House Republicans sue the president for overreaching, another day they expand his reach. The other is that by inaction or even inattention, Congress seems willing to grant the president broad flexibility in interpreting the authority it has granted earlier. In another case of Obama leaning on the very pinions of Bush administration policy that he deplored in order to win the White House some of the others were in economic affairs the presidents implicit legal defense of his actions has rested on authorizations Bush won more than a decade ago to battle al-Qaida and invade Iraq. Those authorizations were far more narrow in reality than they are in memory. But, then again, a sense of unreality cloaks everything about America at war in the 21st century.David M.

During budget discussions last year, the county commission passed a fire services MSBU that charges residential customers $54 a year, and businesses a fee based on their square footage. The purpose of the additional charge is to upgrade and improve fire services equipment and facilities. However, when the idea was presented to Inverness residents in a city council meeting earlier this year, the county proposal was called bullying and disrespectful, and numerous residents urged the city council to not approve Inverness being a part of the MSBU. So far this has been the citys position, leading City Manager Frank DiGiovanni to enter into discussions with Crystal River and Dunnellon about starting a joint fire department with the existing fire departments in Crystal River and Dunnellon joining with a newly-formed Inverness fire department and sharing equipment and training costs. While this idea has not gone beyond the discussion stages, it is a clear indication of the attitude of the town toward joining the county MSBU. In response to Inverness concerns, earlier this month Sheriff Jeff Dawsy proposed a negotiated one-year agreement that would exempt city residents from the county fire tax and MSBU in exchange for a fixed fee contract for fire services. This proposal will be on the city council agenda for Oct.7, but it is not expected to generate much enthusiasm. DiGiovanni told theChronicleeditorial board his advice will be to avoid entering a contract because the funding mechanism for fire services could change after the new county commission is seated following the November elections. Commissioner Scott Adams has said he is against the fire MSBU and wants it repealed, Scott Carnahan has said he is against the fee, so the winner of the District4 race between Republican Ron Kitchen and no-party candidate Joey White could create a majority on the commission opposed to the MSBU. Elections have consequences, and one of the consequences of this years elections could be changes in funding for fire services. Given this fact, Inverness officials seem unlikely to do anything immediately, preferring to wait and see what the fire services landscape looks like after the elections are over. Only time will tell if this strategy is a benefit or a disservice to Inverness residents. THE ISSUE:Sheriff Dawsy offers to negotiate fire services contract with Inverness.OUR OPINION:Not likely to happen.

LETTERto the Editor Moderate temperaturesIn todays paper (Sept.23), I am glad to see in the Hot Corner regarding animals that there are so many people that agree with me that animals were not chosen and cannot speak for themselves. They need to be in air conditioning. I have six dogs and one cat and my animals are in great shape because I have air conditioning. I keep it at 78, which is not highly too cold or too warm. And in the winter I do 68, just like Duke Energy says. So, to the people who think animals dont need air or heat: Theyre full of baloney. They probably dont even like animals themselves.His name was BillI just wanted to thank a young man. His name is Bill. He works for the Public Works Department.

The watchdog has been chainedNewspapers used to be a great place to work and do good things like ferret out corruption and political scandals. With constant changes of ownership and management, layoffs, and everdwindling staff and budget, newspapers are going the way of all journalism and that isnt reporting the news. Most people now get their news on the Internet and what appears in print is a re-hash of what appears on the net. When have we recently had any real investigative journalism and stories like that reported by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, even with all the scandals revealed in the Obama administration? In the field of investigative journalism, the Holy Grail might be the taking down of a president, but when it comes to proving a guilty man innocent or vice versa, its the investigative reporter who is king. Its kind of interesting whats going on in Ferguson. The police officer may not have been judged guilty of anything yet, but in the media he has been condemned. When was the last time someone admitted that the police got it right and that their son or husband or their boyfriend is guilty of the charges? No one calls the newspapers from jail to say they did it. Everybody is innocent and the police are tried, sentenced and found guilty in the press and by overzealous politicians calling it one more symptom of racism in America and the police department. Yet they do nothing whenever blacks are killed by gangbangers in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles or Washington, D.C. Where was Sharpton, Jackson, the NAACP and ACLU when the slaughter in Chicago over the past month resulted in scores of dead and wounded black youngsters? The reality is that these people and groups are opportunistic weasels who really arent standing up for the community, but just standing up for themselves to further serve their celebrity and the benefits it brings. This begs the question, Whos investigating these people and groups? The Department of Justice? The newspapers are supposed to be the communitys watchdog. However, with all the changes and their biased ownership setting the parameters of what they can say about the Obama administration, newspapers are not pit bull watchdogs but untrained puppies. Think about all the great journalism weve seen in our lifetimes. The corruption exposed and the public benefit that resulted. Where is that focused and pit bull investigative reporting going to come from now with puppies re-hashing what theyve read on the net. From the government? TV? The blogs? Forget it. With puppies following the party line, corruption as weve seen, is the new growth industry without the newspapers watching and reporting and exposing it.Gerard Del Vecchio HernandoDont discount Clintons abilitiesA recent letter writer cries for all the victims of 9/11 and wonders where honesty in government has gone. She must be referring to the lies that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, was importing uranium ore from Africa and that Saddam Hussein was responsible for 9/11. Did she forget that prior to 9/11 FBI offices in Minneapolis and Phoenix reported that Middle Eastern men were taking lessons on flying airliners, but didnt want to know how to land or take off? At the same time, Kenneth Clarke, the chief terror official, resigned because the Bush administration was ignoring serious threats. She goes on to say that if Hillary Clinton is elected president all is lost. Clinton, like all Democrats, will ensure the continuity of Social Security, health care for all, unemployment compensation, food stamps for those in poverty, increasing the minimum wage and equal rights for women and all Americans. She would continue to support Obamas policy of a strong military and to provide arms, intelligence, training and air and missile support. All ground troops must come from the countries at risk. If they arent motivated to save their country, no one can do it for them. We have seen that in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.Stan Clewett HomosassaClimate change begins at homeLast Sunday, hundreds of thousands marched throughout the world demanding action on climate change. World leaders, 120 of them, gathered in New York for the United Nations Summit on Climate Change. What can we do? A 2006 U.N. report estimated that meat production accounts for 18percent of man-made greenhouse gases. A 2009 article in the respected World Watch magazine suggested that the contribution may be closer to 50percent. The meat industry generates carbon dioxide by burning forests to create animal pastures and by combustion of fossil fuels to confine, feed, transport and slaughter animals. The much more damaging methane and nitrous oxide are discharged from digestive tracts of cattle and from animal waste cesspools, respectively. In an environmentally sustainable world, wind, solar and other pollutionfree energy sources must gradually replace polluting fossil fuels. Similarly, vegetables, fruits, nuts and grains must replace polluting meat and dairy products. The large variety of widely available plant-based entrees, lunch meats, veggie burgers, cheeses and ice creams can certainly help. Our next trip to the supermarket is a great opportunity to start the transition to a sustainable world.

Suit up Associated PressAn MSF (Medecins Sans Frontieres) nurse gets prepared Monday before entering a high risk zone of MSFs Ebola isolation and treatment center in Monrovia, Liberia. United NationsIceland to host men-only meeting on womens rightsIceland is announcing a U.N. conference on women and gender equality and only men and boys are invited. The countrys foreign affairs minister told the U.N. General Assembly of world leaders on Monday that the January barbershop conference will be unique, as it will be the first time at the United Nations that we bring together only men leaders to discuss gender equality. Gunnar Bragi Sveinsson said the conference convened by his country and Suriname will be an exceptional contribution to events marking the 20th anniversary of a landmark U.N. conference on women in Beijing. We want to bring men and boys to the table on gender equality in a positive way, Sveinsson said. He said the meeting will have a special focus on violence against women.Madrid, SpainCourt prevents vote on Catalonia independenceAn independence vote set for November in Spains powerful Catalonia region was halted Monday by the nations constitutional court after the central government mounted a legal case saying the planned referendum would be illegal. The courts unanimous decision to hear the governments case automatically suspended the Nov. 9 vote from going forward until the court hears arguments and makes a decision, a court statement said. That process could take months or years. Spains central government contends that the vote approved Saturday by Catalan regional leader Artur Mas is unconstitutional.Sao Paulo, BrazilCandidates anti-gay remarks spark angerA minor character in Brazils election faced a firestorm of criticism from activists on Monday after saying during a presidential debate that the country needs to stand up against gay people who should receive psychological help far away from the general population. The comments by presidential candidate Levy Fidelix, who has the support of less than 1 percent of potential voters, drew no reaction from the leading candidates during the nationally televised debate late Sunday. But online and on social media, tens of thousands of people denounced Fidelix as homophobic and hateful. Gay rights activists urged people to file complaints against Fidelix and asked that TV stations remove him from the final presidential debate on Thursday. From wire reports World BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A14TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Associated PressWASHINGTON The intruder who climbed a fence made it farther inside the White House than the Secret Service has publicly acknowledged, a Republican congressman said Monday. The disclosures came on the eve of a congressional oversight hearing with the director of the embattled agency assigned to protect the presidents life. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, who chairs a House subcommittee on national security oversight, said whistleblowers had informed his panel that Omar J. Gonzalez had made it far beyond the front doors of the White House, despite what the Secret Service had said in the hours after the incident. Chaffetz criticized the Secret Service and its leadership for not doing more to stop the suspect earlier. I have deep concerns that the president is not as safe as we want and need him to be, Chaffetz said on CNN. In the hours after the Sept. 19 fence-jumper incident, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan told The Associated Press that the suspect had been apprehended just inside the North Portico doors of the White House. The Secret Service also said that night that the suspect had been unarmed an assertion that was revealed to be false the next day when officials acknowledged Gonzalez had a knife with him when he was apprehended. Senate Judiciary Committee staffers who were briefed about the investigation by the administration a week after the incident were never told that Gonzalez had made it deep into the building, said a congressional official who wasnt authorized to discuss the investigation and requested anonymity. The official said the committee later was told that the suspect had, indeed, made it far beyond the front door. Citing multiple unnamed sources,The Washington Postreported that Gonzalez ran past the guard at the front door, past a staircase leading up to the Obamas living quarters and into the East Room, which is about halfway across the first floor of the building. Gonzalez was eventually tackled by a counter-assault agent, the Postsaid. White House intrusion was serious Secret Service admits incident was worse than officials originally acknowledged Associated PressWASHINGTON Scientists looking at 16 cases of wild weather around the world last year see the fingerprints of manmade global warming on more than half of them. Researchers found that climate change increased the odds of nine extremes: Heat waves in Australia, Europe, China, Japan and Korea, intense rain in parts of the United States and India, and severe droughts in California and New Zealand. The California drought, though, comes with an asterisk. Scientists couldnt find a global warming link to an early South Dakota blizzard, freak storms in Germany and the Pyrenees, heavy rain in Colorado, southern and central Europe, and a cold British spring. Organized by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, researchers on Monday published 22 studies on 2013 climate extremes in a special edition of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society. Its not ever a single factor that is responsible for the extremes that we see, said NOAA National Climatic Data Center director Tom Karl said. Natural variability is always part of any extreme climate event. For years, scientists said they could not attribute single weather events like a drought, heat wave or storm to man-made global warming. But with better computer models and new research, in some cases scientists can see how the odds of events increase or not because of climate change. Other researchers question the usefulness and accuracy of focusing on single extreme events. The editors of the 108-page compilation of studies wrote that people and animals tend to be more affected by extreme weather than changes in averages, so they pay attention to it. The public often connects extreme events to climate change, sometimes wrongly, so scientific analysis like this can help inform the publics understanding of our changing environment. The report seeks to find how much and how man-made warming has influenced the weather, said NOAA research meteorologist Martin Hoerling, an editor of the report. The influence on Australias hottest year in more than a century is glaring, the reports editors said. Its almost impossible to explain Australias hot 2013 without climate change, said Peter Stott of the United Kingdoms meteorology office, another report editor. The most complicated issue is the California drought, the only extreme that has continued into this year. Three teams studied that states record drought in different ways. Two teams couldnt find a link to global warming and water and air temperatures, but the third from Stanford University looked at high pressure patterns in the air and found a connection. Ready for confrontation Associated PressA student pro-democracy protester covers his face in plastic Monday to guard against pepper spray in a standoff with police in Hong Kong. Protesters expanded their rallies throughout Hong Kong, defying calls to disperse in a major pushback against Beijings decision to limit democratic reforms in the Asian financial hub. Scientists blame global warming for weather NationBRIEFS Detroit, Mich.Judge wont stop water shutoffsThe judge overseeing Detroits bankruptcy refused Monday to stop the city from shutting off water if people cant pay their bill, saying theres no right to water and the law doesnt give him the power to keep the taps open anyway. Judge Steven Rhodes gave critics of the shutoffs a twoday hearing last week. He said their arguments were interesting and creative but couldnt trump the legal standard under bankruptcy law or constitutional law or the potential harm to Detroits perilous finances. Detroit cannot afford any revenue slippage, the judge said. It cannot be doubted that water is a necessary ingredient to sustaining life, said Rhodes, but that doesnt mean there is an enforceable right to free and affordable water. Nearly 22,000 homes lost water due to shutoffs from March through August, according to the water department, though 15,251 had service restored in that same period.Houston, TexasDoctor sentenced for poisoning loverA jury on Monday sentenced a Texas cancer researcher to 10 years in prison after she was convicted of poisoning her colleague, who was also her lover, by lacing his coffee with a sweet-tasting chemical found in antifreeze. Dr. Ana Maria GonzalezAngulo, 43, a breast cancer doctor based at Houstons famed Texas Medical Center, had been involved in a sexual relationship with her fellow researcher, Dr. George Blumenschein. Prosecutors said the affair turned into a fatal attraction, and she poisoned him with ethylene glycol after Blumenschein spurned her in favor of Evette Toney, his longtime live-in girlfriend with whom he was trying to start a family. Blumenschein survived the 2013 poisoning. A jury on Friday convicted Gonzalez-Angulo, who is originally from Colombia, of aggravated assault.Boston, Mass.City council weighs $25K pay raiseBoston City Council members kicked off a discussion Monday on possibly giving themselves each a $25,000 raise to bring their salaries more in line with their counterparts in New York and other major U.S. cities, even as questions arise over whether the proposal violates Massachusetts law. The full-time council has not had a pay raise since 2006, and City Council President Bill Linehan, who introduced the proposal earlier in September, said it is long overdue. The proposal calls for a nearly 29 percent pay hike, from $87,500 a year to $112,500 roughly the same salary as council members in New York, the nations most populous city with about 8.4 million residents. Boston has a population of about 645,000.Lebanon, Ore.Cologne leads cops to suspectOfficers in western Oregon said a suspect they tried to collar at a traffic stop drove too fast for pursuing officers, but eventually he was just too fragrant. The Albany Democrat-Herald reported that the driver gave officers in Linn County the slip in a high-speed chase before dawn Sunday, doing better than 100 mph in a red Honda Prelude whose hood flew off. But Lebanon police later saw the car parked and launched a search by foot. Thats when officers caught a strong scent of cologne in the darkness and soon found their suspect hiding in shrubbery. Thirty-five-year-old Charles V. Agosto was jailed on charges including probation violation and trying to elude officers. Officers said he told them he regretted using the cologne. It was unclear if he had a lawyer. From wire reports
TAMPA Lovie Smith wasnt ready Monday to deal with the inevitable questions about his start ing quarterback. On the day after his first victory as coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he certainly said noth ing to rule out Mike Glennon. He who threw for 302 yards Sunday, 46 of them in the final 40 sec onds of a 27-24 win at Pittsburgh. You do judge quarterbacks on what they do late, Smith said, and he was at his best at the end, right up until the last throw. Starting in place of the injured Josh McCown, Glennon completed a five-yard touchdown pass to Vincent Jackson for the game-winning TD with seven seconds left. McCown broke his right thumb during a 56-14 loss at Atlanta on Sept. 18, Tampa Bays third straight loss. He is not likely to be ready to play Sunday at New Orleans, so Smiths decision will be postponed. I look at whos available at the time and at who gives us the best chance to win at all posi tions, he said. Well do the same when Josh gets back. Hes not back yet, though. Glennon started 13 games as a rookie last Baseball/ B2 Scoreboard/B3 Sports briefs/B3 Lottery, TV/ B3 Football/B4 SEC West teams prepare for historic Saturday. / B4 S PORTsS Section B TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2014 c Bucs Glennon makes his case Work in progress C.J. RISAK Time for some midseason anal ysis or what each county vol leyball team must do to make a run to the next level of the state tournament. Lets start with the three 5A-6 teams. Two of the three will make a trip to the regionals, that much seems assured, since Dunnellon has yet to win a set in four district matches. The question is: Which two? Lecanto is on top at the moment, the Panthers unbeaten in 5A-6 play. They have displayed crisp passing led by Shannon Fernan dez and Morgan Christian, solid defense paced by Erin Smilgen and Olivia Grey, and all-around strong play at the net from An nalee Garcia, DeeAnna Mohering and Dedra Magee. All those elements were on dis play in Lecantos straight-set vic tory over Citrus last Tuesday and the Panthers run to the finals at the Fivay Classic last weekend. They finished 4-1 for the tourna ment, losing to Riverview in the final. They dont have to change anything, just refine it; if Lecanto maintains its focus, it can win. But Crystal River certainly cannot be ruled out in the district title race. Prior to Mondays match at St. Francis Catholic, the Pirates had won 12 of 18 matches thanks to the all-around superb play of Cassidy Wardlow. Their size at the net, notably Aspen Epstein and Kaylan Simms, has made them dangerous. If their defense contin ues to develop, they could make a regional run. Now for Citrus, the defending district champ. The Hurricanes are trying to replace eight gradu ated seniors, and it hasnt been easy. There are only two seniors on the current team, making it VOLLEYBALL NOTEBOOK ST. PETERSBURG The Tampa Bay Rays are no lon ger accustomed to playing meaningless games, so the past week or so has been espe cially tough on a team that began the season with expectations of contending for a World Series berth. Instead of making a fifth trip to the playoffs in seven years, disappointed players and manager Joe Maddon are getting an early start on their offseason after posting the clubs first losing record since 2007 the final year they were known as the dreadful Devil Rays, perennial losers who would have welcomed a 77-85 finish. Fourth-place in the AL East would have been progress, even acceptable, for the old Devil Rays. But thats no longer the case. Since 2008, when the franchise adopted new colors, changed uniforms and dropped the Devil from its name, the Rays have played a total of 21 games after being math ematically eliminated from postseason contention, includ ing eight this year. Its just a sickening feeling to go into late Septem ber, and watching teams start celebrating, and watch ing postseason commercials on TV and knowing youre not going to be part of it, pitcher Alex Cobb said. Its a feel ing we dont want to have to repeat next year. Maddon, whos guided the franchise to six winning records, four playoff berths, two division titles and one AL pennant in nine seasons, agreed. I wont be able to watch playoff games. Ill shut down after this because I just cant, the manager said. I really believe that we should be there, and we did not get it done. ... I just need to put it down for a bit.

Think again. There is plenty of postseason action, beginning today. See Page B2 for a wealth of playoff information.District races taking shapeSee NOTEBOOK/ Page B3 C.J. RISAK It hasnt been easy. Thats one way to summarize the way the season has gone for Jordan Josey and her Citrus volleyball teammates. One season after the school claimed its first district title in the sport in 19 years, its been a struggle. Lots of players graduated from that squad. One who didnt is Josey, who led the Hurricanes in kills as a junior. As the only senior on this seasons team who started last year, Josey was chosen to help keep her team on course. But the wins have been difficult to come by. She gets frustrated, said her coach, Sandy VanDervort. She gets frustrated when we send over free balls because she knows her ability at the net and she does not get the opportunities. She makes very few mistakes. If we can feed her the ball, she will get the team going. She will side-out points and she will get us points when we have the serve. Its just a matter of us getting her the ball. That hasnt been so easy, which was evident in last Tuesdays three-set loss to Lecanto. Josey finished with five kills, but she had just six chances. She ranks second on the team in kills with 53. Asked what could be done to rectify the problem, Josey said, We just need to talk more and get more comfortable with each other as a team. Last year we operated as all one unit. This year were kind of split because no one knows each other. That lack of familiarity has been a lingering problem, one that has kept Josey and her coaches searching for solutions.

have fired man ager Ron Gardenhire after 13 seasons that included at least 92 losses in each of the last four years. The move was made Mon day, ending the second-longest active tenure in the major leagues behind Mike Scioscia of the Angels. Gardenhire played an inte gral role in the franchises re naissance, guiding the Twins to their first of six American League Central division titles in 2002 in his first season on the job. But Gardenhires teams only got out of the first round once in those six trips. Gardenhire had one year left on his contract. Marlins give Redmond extension to 2017 WASHINGTON On the same day the Marlins ended their 2014 season by getting no-hit by Jordan Zimmermann of the Washington Nationals, Miami began looking ahead by giving manager Mike Redmond a two-year contract extension. Redmonds deal, which runs through 2017, was announced Sunday by team president David Samson during Miamis 1-0 loss to NL East champion Washington. The centerpiece of Miamis rebuilding is outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, who led the NL with 37 homers despite missing the final 17 games after getting hit in the face by a pitch. Hes the franchises first home-run champion. Mike Hill, the clubs presi dent of baseball operations, said that when Stanton gets back from vacation, the Marlins will begin negotiating a longterm contract for the slugger. Girardi: A-Rod has to show he can still play NEW YORK Alex Rodri guez will have to show in spring training that he can still play third base for the New York Yankees. Rodriguez served a season-long suspension for vi olations of baseballs drug agreement and labor contract. The three-time AL MVP turns 40 on July 27. Weve got to see where hes physically at, and if he can play the field, how many days he can play the field and how many days he needs to DH, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said at a news conference Monday as he turned his attention to next sea son. I dont think really many of us know about him until we ac tually get him into games in spring training. New York missed consecu tive postseasons for the first time since 1992 and and at 84-78 has had declining wins totals in three straight seasons for the first time since 1986-90. The Yankees scored 633 runs, 13th among the 15 AL teams, and their .307 on-base percent age was ahead of only Seattle. While Derek Jeter is retiring, Rodriguez plans to come back. A-Rod is signed for three addi tional seasons for a total of $61 million, part of his record $275 million, 10-year contract. AJ Hinch hired to manage Astros HOUSTON A.J. Hinch has been introduced as the new manager of the Houston Astros. Hinch takes over for Bo Por ter, who was fired on Sept. 1 in his second year. Tom Lawless ran the team for the rest of the season on an interim basis. The Astros finished 70-92 and fourth in the AL West. Hinch managed Arizona from May 2009 until July 2010, when he was fired after a 31-48 start. He was the vice president of professional scout ing for San Diego from 2010 until August. The 40-year-old is a former catcher who spent seven sea sons in the majors with the Athletics, Royals, Tigers and Phillies. From wire reports BASEBALL BRIEFS A fresh look rr fn So, is this the year of Buck Showalter, Bryce Harper and a Beltway Series? Or perhaps Al bert Pujols, Yasiel Puig and a Freeway Series? Maybe a Bay Area matchup or something from the Show Me State. Plenty of World Series possibil ities this year. And a lot to enjoy way before we get there, now that the playoff brackets are set. It took Game 162 to settle three races Sunday, a final afternoon that featured Derek Jeters fare well and Jordan Zimmermanns no-hitter. A look ahead: FRESH FACES: Mike Trout, Stephen Strasburg and Adam Dunn all get their first playoff chance. Favored for the AL MVP after two near-misses, the 23-yearold Trout can boost his stature even more when the Angels host the AL wild card in the best-offive division opener Thursday. Strasburg is rarin to go after Washington held him out of the 2012 postseason because of a pitch limit, a decision that still rankles some in D.C. the Nats host the NL wild card Friday. Dunn has played 2,001 games, the most by any active big leaguer never in the playoffs. The slug ging DH tries to help Oakland ad vance in the AL wild-card game tonight at Kansas City, while the Royals make their first playoff ap pearance since 1985. LATE LIFTS: Jon Lester, David Price and Huston Street each got traded in midseason, deals de signed with big games in mind. Price delivered the AL Central crown to Detroit on Sunday, and will pitch again when the Tigers take on Baltimore. Lester tries to extend his postseason brilliance when he starts for the As against James Shields in the wild-card game the former Boston lefty is 3-0 vs. the Royals this season. Street has smoothly fit into the closers role for the Angels. MOST VALUABLE PLANS: Buster Posey and Andrew Mc Cutchen split the last two NL MVP awards, but the San Fran cisco catcher has a couple of things the Pittsburgh center fielder really wants namely, a pair of World Series rings. By Wednesday night, only one of the stars will have a chance to earn the jewelry this year. Posey and the Giants visit McCutchen and the Pirates in the NL wild-card Wednesday night, with San Fran ciscos Madison Bumgarner set to start against Edinson Volquez. BANGED UP: Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw and St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina each spent time on the disabled list this year. Healthy now, they meet in a neat Game 1 Friday in Los Angeles itll be 20-game winner Adam Wainwright vs. Kershaw, fresh off becoming the first pitcher to lead the majors in ERA for four straight years. Kershaw first to lead MLB in ERA four straight years NEW YORK Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Ker shaw became the first pitcher to lead the major leagues in earned run average in four straight years, and Houstons Jose Altuve and Colorados Justin Morneau won their first batting titles. Kershaws 1.77 ERA was the lowest in the Na tional League since Greg Madduxs 1.63 for At lanta in 1995. Im not really thinking about that right now, said Kershaw, who went 21-3 to lead the major leagues in wins and already has turned his tunnel-vision focus toward the postseason. Kershaw became the first to lead the NL in ERA in four con secutive seasons since the Dodg ers Sandy Koufax strung together five years in a row from 1962-66. It says a lot about his work ethic and not being satisfied, said Magic Johnson, one of the Dodgers owners. Seattles Felix Hernandez won his second AL ERA title, pitching 5 1/3 scoreless innings against the Los Angeles Angels and leaving about 10 minutes after the Mari ners were eliminated from play off contention by Oaklands win at Texas. Hernandez started the week end with a 2.34 ERA but it dropped to 2.18 Saturday when Major League Baseball Execu tive Vice President Joe Torre changed a hit to an error in Her nandezs previous start against Toronto, making four runs un earned. Hernandez finished at 2.14, besting Chris Sale of the Chicago White Sox (2.17). I was disappointed in my last start against Toronto, Hernan dez said. Today I had a different mind to go out there and do what I was capable to do, just throw strikes. Originally left out of the start ing lineup by the Astros on Sun day, Altuve talked his way in and went 2 for 4 against the New York Mets to win the AL batting title at .341. Altuve began the day with a three-point lead over Detroits Victor Martinez, who went 0 for 3 and wound up at .335. Altuve became Houstons first batting champion, leaving the Se attle Pilots-Milwaukee Brewers, Arizona and Tampa Bay as the only teams without at least one. I think this is way better than just sitting on the bench and wait ing for something, Altuve said. If you want to win something, youve got to win it on the field. Morneau, who sat out Saturday, pinch-hit in the eighth inning and grounded out, leaving him at .319 the lowest average for a batting champion in either league since Tony Gwynn hit .313 for San Diego in 1988. Pittsburghs Josh Harri son was second at .315 following an 0-for-4 day against Cincinnati. Im most proud that I was con sistent all season, Morneau said. Sometimes you get hot for a while and hit .450, but I think I was consistent all season and I focus and concentrated on that. Playing home games in Den vers thin mile-high air, Colorado won its second straight batting title and ninth in 22 years. Andres Galarraga (1994), Larry Walker (1998, and ), Todd Helton (), Matt Holliday (), Carlos Gonzalez () and Michael Cud dyer () also won batting titles with the Rockies. A year after serving a 50-game suspension for violating the major league drug program, Nel son Cruz hit 40 home runs for Baltimore and won his first AL home run title and the Orioles second straight following Chris Davis 53 long balls last year. Gi ancarlo Stanton topped the NL with 37 despite missing Miamis last 17 games after he was hit on the face by a pitch. Mike Trout of the Angels had 111 RBIs, the fewest for an AL leader in a non-shortened season since Baltimores Lee May had 109 in 1976. The Dodgers Adrian Gonzalez led the NL with 116. Milwaukees Jonathan Lucroy set the season record for doubles by a catcher with 46, one more than Texas Ivan Rodriguez in 1996. With 53 doubles overall, Lu croy became the first player who was primarily a catcher to lead his league. Detroits David Price struck out eight in the Tigers AL Central-clinching win over Min nesota on Sunday to lead the AL with 271, two more than Cleve lands Corey Kluber. Cincinnatis Johnny Cueto struck out seven against the Pirates on Sunday to tie Washingtons Stephen Stras burg for the NL lead at 242. Kluber and the Los Angeles Angels Jered Weaver shared the AL wins lead at 18 with Detroits Max Scherzer, who led the ma jors in 2013 with 21. Dee Gordon of the Dodgers led the NL with 64 steals and Altuve topped the AL with 56. Seattles Fernando Rodney had a major league-high 48 saves. Atlantas Craig Kimbrel had 47, the fourth straight year hes topped the NL or shared the lead.

even more difficult, but not impossible. There is talent, starting with senior middle hitter Jordan Josey and the currently injured Kayla King. If Citrus can correct its communication difficul ties and improve in some of the basic elements of the game, like serve recep tion, it could make a regional run. After all, it only takes one win to make it. Now lets get to 2A-3 and what must be the most surprising team in the area, Seven Rivers Christian. The War riors had a great deal of experience returning in Alyssa Gage, Tessa Kacer, Kim Iwaniec and Julia Eckart, but there were still questions, starting with an overall lack of size. The Warriors proved that to be in consequential when they displayed their ability to dig up just about every thing as they swept every set in their matches against county rivals. Com peting in a three-team district, it seemed quite likely they would ad vance past 2A-3 play. But thats when the second surprise set in. Seven Rivers was upset by dis trict foe Leesburg First Academy, then lost to perennial 2A-3 rival Ocala St. John Lutheran. That means the Warriors, 13-5 over all, are winless in district play. Two more matches with those two teams remain, but their fate is likely already decided. Theyll have to play a district tournament semifinal match, almost assuredly against First Academy. Seven Rivers knows what it must do to win try to keep its opponents at tack off-balance by continuing to dig everything up, then finish its own at tack opportunities. The Warriors host First Academy next Tuesday (Oct. 7), and that should be interesting to say the least. MATCH OF THE WEEK Citrus hosts Crystal River at 6 p.m. tonight while Dunnellon plays at Le canto. Citrus did beat the Pirates once this season at the Bishop McLaughlin Tournament, but that was with King. Its uncertain if shell return to play tonight. If she does, the Hurricanes have a good chance to make a statement here with a win that would tie them with Crystal River for second place in 5A-6. But theyll need more than King to accomplish that. The Pirates have made steady prog ress all season and theres no reason to think that will change here. Ironically, the team that would ben efit most from a Citrus victory would be Lecanto. If the Hurricanes do win and the Panthers top Dunnellon as an ticipated, Lecanto would clinch the district title and the No. 1 seed in the 5A-6 tournament.

I dont have any regrets. We let things play out, Smith said. I tell guys you start off with a group and eventually, wherever you belong, thats where youll end up. When youre labeled the quarter back of the future, thats what youre supposed to do when you come out. The future was in front of us a little earlier than the initial plan, but you need to be ready at all times. How (Glennon) handled it right there at the end, having to make that final throw, kind of said it all. The return of defensive linemen Gerald McCoy and Michael Johnson were large factors in the Bucs 10-day turnaround from embarrassment to their first win, Smith said, and it left them with a different outlook. With 12 games left, they are one game out of the NFC South lead. Yes, 1-3 is disappointing, but in the big scheme of things there are a lot of disappointed teams in the league, Smith said. For us, were one game away and we have another chance to get a division road game. What better position for us to be in? Were getting some of our injured players back, and our guys can see where we can go. Safety Dashon Goldson left the Steelers game early with an ankle in jury and wide receiver Mike Evans left with an injured groin. Johnson re-injured his ankle in the game and McCoy was adjusting to playing with a cast on his broken left hand. McCown remains unable to grip on a football properly, which makes a quick return unlikely, especially after Glennons performance Sunday. As I look at quarterbacks, I look at decision-making, and he made good decisions throughout the day, Smith said. If he couldnt find a guy, he put the ball where no one could get it. Thats a good game to build on, but hell (Glennon) tell you theres a lot of plays he left on the field, and we left on the field too. NFL scores Thursdays Game N.Y.

I dont know my team mates as well. Last year I knew they were going to be there behind me, I didnt have to second guess it. This year, I dont really second guess it, but Im not sure. Also unlike last year, Josey is counted on to do more for her team, in all aspects of the game. I have to cover a lot more since I might be the only one blocking and I have to cover more of the floor in the front row, she said. Her efforts, in all areas, have not gone unnoticed. Her jump serve, when its on, that will usually get us a lot of points, VanDervort said. Certainly, her back row play has increased when she does have to serve and play the back row. She can read players pretty well and reacts pretty well. She is quick and she works on her placements. She works very hard on trying to read the other team and know where their holes are. It hasnt helped any that Kayla King, who leads Citrus in kills, has been out for two weeks with an ankle injury. She could return as soon as this week. It just takes one more person away that I was comfortable with, knowing she was going to have my back, Josey said. Her and Morgan (Cleary) were the only people I played with last year. So it just takes one more person away that I knew would be there, if I block to cover behind me, to be there to set or to have another person to hit. Roles were more defined last sea son. That process is still being deter mined this year. PROGRESS Continued from Page B1 Pirates swept by Wolves The Crystal River volleyball team stepped out of district play Monday night in Gainesville and was handed a 25-14, 25-13, 25-9 loss by St. Francis Catholic. Cassidy Wardlow had eight digs and five kills for the Pirates. Allie Whited added five digs and three kills, Mercedes Scott had a team-high 12 digs, Olivia Townsend added eight digs and Abby Epstein had four kills and four digs. The Pirates (12-7, 3-1) return to 5A-6 district play tonight in Inverness against Citrus. Charles sends Chiefs to 41-14 rout of Patriots KANSAS CITY, Mo. Jamaal Charles returned from an injury to score three touchdowns, Tom Brady was picked off twice and the Kansas City Chiefs beat New England 41-14 on Mon day night to hand Bill Belichick one of his worst losses as coach of the Patriots. Charles, who missed last weeks win in Miami with a sprained ankle, ran for 92 yards and a score. He also caught two short TD passes from Alex Smith, who finished with 248 yards and three touch downs through the air. The Chiefs (2-2) ended a four-game skid at Arrowhead Stadium by handing the Patriots (2-2) their worst loss since losing to San Diego 41-17 in 2005. Along with throwing two interceptions, one of which was returned for a touch down, Brady was strip-sacked by Tamba Hali to step up a field goal. Brady fin ished 14 of 23 for 159 yards. From staff and wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS which the Rays lost 14 of 15, saddled the Rays with the worst record in baseball on June 10. A major league-best 37-19 record from June 11 to Aug. 15 that enabled the team to climb from a season-low 18 games below .500 back to the break-even point with plenty of time left to chase a playoff spot. A 16-26 mark after Aug. 16, a slide that contributed to Tampa Bay being the only team in the majors with a losing record (36-45) at home, compared to a winning re cord (41-40) on the road. Despite some nice starting pitching, which remains the teams strongest asset, the hole the Rays dug in the first two months ultimately proved too big to escape. The pitching staff won six 1-0 games and finished with 22 shutouts, most by an AL team since 1973, the start of the designated hitter era. But the Rays also were blanked 18 times and offensively finished among the ALs worst in runs per game, batting average and on-base percentage. Injuries contributed to the struggles, and trading pitching ace David Price cer tainly didnt help. But more than anything, the Rays suf fered because they got less than expected offensively from key players such as Evan Longoria, Wil Myers, Desmond Jennings, Yunel Escobar and Ben Zobrist. They scored 612 runs, fewest in fran chise history, and hit 117 homers, second fewest in club history. RAYS Continued from Page B1
rfrThree teams from the Southeastern Confer ences powerful Western Division are finally going down. That much is assured on Saturday, when six teams ranked in the top 15 clash in an unprecedented day for any division in major college football. First, No. 6 Texas A&M visits No. 12 Mississippi State in what will be a sea of maroon and cowbells. Then the action heads 100 miles north to Oxford for an even bigger showdown: No. 3 Alabama at No. 11 Mississippi. Later that night, No. 15 LSU visits No. 5 Auburn. Its only the fifth time any division has had two games featuring Top 25 matchups on the same day, and the past two times it has featured SEC West teams, according to STATS. No division has ever had a trifecta of Top 25 matchups. Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban last week called it the Golden Age of our division in the West. SEC West teams have won five of the past seven national titles. The last time a confer ence had three ranked matchups was in the Big Ten on Oct. 18, 2003. It hasnt happened in the SEC since STATS began tracking rankings in 1993. Alabama safety Landon Collins watched Arkansas flirt with an upset of Texas A&M on Saturday and pretty much summed up whats ahead for the six legitimate contenders for the SEC West title. When I was watching the game, I just said, This is crazy. This is going to be a crazy season, Collins said. The historic day comes in a division that has a combined 28-4 record with three of those defeats coming in head-to-head matchups. Only Arkansas (3-2, 0-2) appears unlikely to contend, but it would be a feat for any SEC West team to emerge from the fray with a clean sweep of its division brethren. Heres a rundown of the three big matchups:No. 3 Alabama at No. 11 Ole MissOle Miss quarterback Bo Wallace acknowledges it is tough be a student these days. Youre sitting in class and youre trying to pay attention, but you know where your mind is at, Wallace said. Ole Miss (4-0, 1-0 SEC) is undefeated through four games for the first time since 1970 and now has a chance to end a decade of futility against the Tide. The Rebels have lost 10 straight in the series and were shutout 25-0 last sea son in Tuscaloosa. There are a myriad of intriguing matchups, in cluding one that features family ties. Alabama of fensive coordinator Lane Kiffin who has injected some style into the Tides usually straightforward offense will be trying to score points on his brother Chris, who is the defen sive line coach for the Rebels. Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze didnt know if the relationship would help or hurt his team on Satur day. He just knows Ala bama (4-0, 1-0) is really good once again. Hopefully our team plays its best game of the year, Freeze said. Its going to take that against a really superb Alabama team.No. 6 Texas A&M at No. 12 Miss. StateThe Bulldogs have al ready had one big victory this season, ending a 14-game losing streak against LSU thanks to a 34-29 win on Sept. 20. Now Mississippi State (4-0, 1-0) could really make things interesting in the West by beating the Aggies. To do that, the Bulldogs will have to slow down Texas A&Ms prolific of fense thats led by firstyear starting quarterback Kenny Hill. He led the Ag gies (4-0, 2-0) to a stunning comeback over Arkansas on Saturday. Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said Hill who is only a sophomore is playing like a veteran. Hes letting the ball go before receivers get in and out of breaks, Mullen said. Theres a lot of con fidence that goes with that. Mississippi State has a pretty good quarterback, too. Junior Dak Prescott has thrown for 964 yards and 11 touchdowns through four games.No. 15 LSU at No. 5 AuburnLSU (4-1, 0-1) could have no margin for error after its loss to Mississippi State. I dont think there is a person in our building thats not excited about the opportunity to go down and play very well at Au burn, LSU coach Les Miles said. LSU handed Auburn (4-0, 1-0) its only regular-season loss last season on the way to the national championship game. Auburn did rebound in the second half of that game after falling behind 21-0. Last year, that game re ally turned out heads, Au burn tailback Corey Grant said. It made us realize what we were capable of. Miles said LSU will start freshman quarter back Brandon Harris for the first time.B4 St cl 000JBL5 The Florida Council of the International Federation of Fly Fishers presents Florida 2014 featuring Bob Clouser & Wanda Taylor For more information, go to www.fff-florida.org at Plantation on Crystal River Friday & Saturday, Oct. 10 & 11, 2014 See the latest fly tackle & gear Clinics & workshops with IFFF certified casting instructors Fly tying demos & workshops with the southeasts top fly tiers Programs for Women & Kids Free programs & seminars Fri. reception & Sat. banquet Raffles, silent auctions, live auctions & much more.

Coach Doug Marrone announced Monday that Kyle Orton will start Sundays game against the Detroit Lions. Manuel was the Bills first-round draft pick in 2013 and had started 14 games over the past two seasons. Manuel had a season-low quarterback rating of 59.4 and threw an interception that was returned for a momentum-changing touchdown Sunday during the Bills 23-17 loss to Houston. Buffalo signed Orton on Aug. 30 to back up Manuel. Orton, a nine-year NFL veteran, spent the past two sea-sons in Dallas before being cut by the Cowboys in midJuly after he skipped the teams offseason workouts amid reports that he was considering retirement.NC State coach: Florida State faked injuriesRALEIGH, N.C. North Carolina State coach Dave Doeren said Florida State players faked injuries to slow the Wolfpacks offense over the weekend, a charge Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher denies. Doeren first raised the issue after Saturdays 56-41 loss to top-ranked FSU, then was asked about it Monday during his weekly news conference. Doeren said FSU defensive players would go down with an injury that stopped the clock, go to the sideline then immediately return to the game. Doeren said its happened multiple times to his team and isnt limited to Florida State, calling it unsportsmanlike behavior. Asked about Doerens comments, Fisher said Monday that he accused Doeren of not knowing what hes talking about and that we wouldnt do that.Hoke discusses Morris health amid criticismANN ARBOR, Mich. Michigan coach Brady Hoke said he has never kept a player in a game who he thought had a concussion and as far as he knew, quarterback Shane Morris had an injured ankle near the end of the Wolverines loss to Minnesota over the weekend. Morris stayed in Saturdays game for a play after taking a violent hit in the fourth quarter. The sophomore was then taken out, but went back in for another play and handed the ball off after quarterback Devin Gardners helmet had popped off, forcing him to take a play off. Hoke said Monday that as far as he knows, Morris hasnt been diagnosed with a concussion.Late Sunday Cowboys 38, Saints 17ARLINGTON, Texas Tony Romo threw three touch-downs passes two to Terrance Williams and DeMarco Murray ran for a pair of scores in another 100-yard game and the Dallas Cowboys beat the New Orleans Saints 38-17 on Sunday night. The Cowboys kept Drew Brees and the Saints (1-3) score-less in the first half after giving up an NFL-record 40 first downs in a 49-17 blowout loss in New Orleans last year. Brees led two scoring drives early in the fourth quarter to cut a 31-3 deficit in half before the Cowboys regained control. Dallas reached 3-1 for the first time under coach Jason Garrett after also starting 2-1 the three previous seasons. The Cowboys are tied with Philadelphia for the NFC East lead.

MEGANCARELLA CorrespondentThe recent death of celebrated actor/ comedian Robin Williams shines a spotlight on the tragedy of suicide. Here in Florida, media regularly report on completed and attempted suicides by the elderly, but military veterans and teenagers are at risk, as well. Its been said that suicide is a long-term solution to a shortterm problem. Experts believe that most suicidal individuals do not want to die. They just want to end the pain they are experiencing. When suicidal intent or risk is detected early, lives can be saved. Every 13.3 minutes, someone in the United States completes suicide, making it the 10th leading cause of death. A full 50 percent more people in the U.S. die by suicide each year than by homicide. Sadly, it is the second leading cause of death among 15to 24-yearolds. And although the elderly make up 13.3 percent of the population, they comprise 16 percent of all suicides. Thirty-eight thousand people complete suicide each year. Thats more deaths than in the last 10 wars combined, said Lt. Larry Engle, retired law enforcement official and trainer and CEO of Mental Health Advocacy and Training. Can you imagine the outrage if we had lost that many in a recent war? But with suicide, it barely gets mentioned. Engle recently conducted a Mental Health First Aid training program in Inverness for elected officials, school district personnel and mental health professionals from Citrus, Hernando, Marion and Pasco counties. Developed by Mental Health First Aid USA, the program works to teach community members how to respond in a mental health emergency and offer support to someone who appears to be in emotional distress. Education and training helps people to identify and treat mental health disorders and to better understand the challenges faced by the millions of Americans who live with such disorders. Thats why its important to know the warning signs of suicide and how to take action to provide help. According to Mental Health First Aid USA, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (www.nami.org) and the American Association of Suicidology (www.suicidology.org), some of the warning signs of suicide include: Threatening to hurt or kill oneself Looking for ways to kill oneself, seeking access to pills, weapons or other means Talking or writing about death, dying or suicide Expressing hopelessness Feeling rage or anger, seeking revenge Acting recklessly or engaging in risky activities, seemingly without thinking Feeling trapped, like there is no way out Increasing alcohol or drug use Withdrawing from friends, family or society Experiencing anxiety or agitation, being unable to sleep, or sleeping all the time Undergoing dramatic changes in mood Feeling no reason for living, no sense of purpose in lifeIts OK to talk about itAmong the myths surrounding suicide, the idea that talking about it plants the idea in a persons mind could be the most prevalent. If a person is suicidal, he or she has been thinking about it for a while, said Engle. Ask directly are you thinking about killing yourself? Dont avoid using the word and dont judge the person. Another myth is that people who talk about suicide dont attempt suicide. On the contrary, talking about it may indicate just how badly the person is feeling. How to help someone who is suicidalSuicidal thoughts are often a plea for help and a desperate attempt to escape from problems and painful feelings. To determine if the situation is serious, ask the person if they have a plan for suicide. Have they decided how and when to do it? Have they secured the means to carry out the plan? Even without a plan, all thoughts of suicide must be taken seriously, said Engle, but a higher level of planning indicates a more serious risk. To help a friend or loved one in such a crisis: Tell the person you care and that you want to help. Encourage him or her to do most of the talking. Express empathy and accept the persons feelings. Tell him or her that such thoughts are common and do not have to be acted on. Offer hope that alternatives are available. Do not leave the person alone. Do not use guilt or threats or lecture on the value of life. Just as we treat people with heart disease or diabetes, we should also treat people with mental health disorders, said Engle. Removing the stigma of mental illness and providing the help and support all our citizens need will greatly reduce the incidence of suicide.

To begin, one must distinguish tumors which occur in the brain from those which truly develop in the brain and those which spread from other sites of the body to the brain. These tumors which spread from other locations, such as the lungs, are actually metastatic lesions, and are not considered to be primary brain tumors. Each year in this country, roughly 23,000 people are diagnosed with a primary brain tumor. One must also distinguish between benign and malignant tumors of the brain. Benign brain tumors are basically simple overgrowths of normal tissue of the brain. When these tumors are looked at under the microscope, they do not contain characteristic cancer cells, and do not possess the ability to spread to other locations of the body. Malignant tumors, on the other hand, when viewed under the microscope do possess changes which are seen and represent cancer cells. They tend to grow much more rapidly, and actually invade into the healthy tissue around them. Unfortunately, however, even benign tumors of the brain can be life threatening. The bony skull basically does not allow for any expansion of the tissue within the head and if a benign tumor begins to grow, it can cause significant damage to the surrounding brain tissue simply by placing pressure upon it. Benign brain tumors can even lead to death if they are not properly treated. As with many types of malignancies, the cause of brain tumors is unknown. Brain tumors can occur at any age; however, studies have shown that they are most common in either children between the ages of three to 12 or in adults between the age of 40 to 70. Certain studies have shown risk factors associated with a greater chance of developing a brain tumor. These include people who have had exposure to certain industrial types of jobs such as oil refining, rubber manufacturing and drug manufacturing. Other studies have also shown that chemists and embalmers also have a higher incidence of brain tumors. A great deal of research is now going into whether or not viruses may contribute to the development of brain tumors. In most instances, however, there are no clear risk factors when talking to someone about a brain tumor. Brain tumors can present with many varied symptoms. These symptoms depend greatly on the size of the tumor and the location of the tumor within the brain. Symptoms can be related to pressure on the brain or by swelling that occurs as a reaction to the tumor, which is known as edema. The most frequent symptoms associated with brain tumors include headaches that tend to be worse in the morning and then ease up during the day, seizures, nausea or vomiting, weakness or loss of feeling in the arms or legs, a change in ones coordination which may lead to stumbling, abnormal eye movements or visual changes, drowsiness, personality and memory changes or changes in speech. If a brain tumor is suspected, a physician will typically order either a computer tomography (CT) scan or a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. These studies will allow the physician to determine the extent of the abnormality and also rule out other causes of mental status changes. Next week, we will discuss the more common types of brain tumors.Dr. C. Joseph Bennett is a board-certified radiation oncologist.

There are many types of syndromes in medicine. The one Im going to talk about today is called VIP syndrome. Its not a true syndrome, but it does occur and may be a factor in the recent passing of Joan Rivers. VIP syndrome is an occurrence thats defined by someone being well known, whether it is in the community or nationwide or worldwide, and when they seek medical attention they get extra care or different care that may actually put them in danger. Rich and famous people tend to be secretive, private for obvious reasons, and may want to have special care, but it is important that special care not be at the cost of their safety. An example would be the situation with Michael Jackson, where he had enough money to hire a private doctor who would prescribe any medications that Jackson wanted to rest, feel good and have no pain. Another example of VIP syndrome would be not telling the doctor certain important medical facts that might be crucial in delivering safe and healthy care. Cutting corners in the usual standards of care and protocol because someone is important or needs to get the treatment or a procedure done quickly might ultimately put them at risk. A patient might ask the doctor do we really need to do this, is this necessary? The answer is yes, whether youre a VIP or an average citizen, there are standards of care that needs to be followed. Pushing your doctor or nurse to do certain things might end up being counterproductive. Another factor with Joan Rivers is the fact that she was 81 years old and seniors who are ill and/or contemplating a procedure can potentially have complications at a higher rate than a younger patient. Yes, its true we all know she went through multiple cosmetic procedures previously without any problems, but that doesnt guarantee she was not going to have an issue. So, now you know a little bit about VIP syndrome, which can occur to everyone, not just VIPs. Its not a real medical syndrome and is not as scary as Ebola or breast cancer, but it can be very real. The takeaway from this is be truthful with your doctor, make sure he/she understands your medical history well and all your medications. Let them take care for you following triedand-true standards of medical care so you dont fall victim to the VIP syndrome.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

One of her friends noticed she was becoming pale. She went to see her family doctor. He ordered some blood tests and found she was very anemic. Anemia also can occur if your red blood cells dont contain enough hemoglobin. It is an iron-rich protein that gives blood its red color. This protein helps red blood cells carry oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. My patient noticed her pallor. If you have anemia, your body doesnt get enough oxygen-rich blood. As a result, you may feel tired or weak. You also may have other symptoms, such as shortness of breath, dizziness or headaches. If anemia becomes severe, it can precipitate a heart attack or other heart problems, too. This is an extremely common condition and many people ignore it by saying that I have been anemic all my life. This can be a huge mistake. My patient was admitted to the hospital and she required three units of blood transfusion. Anemia can be due to many different reasons. It is very important to find the exact cause of anemia. Treatment of anemia varies depending on the cause. Some people equate anemia with low iron. It is true that it is one of the causes of anemia, but there are many other causes. In my patient, there was no iron, B12 or folic acid deficiency. I advised a bone marrow biopsy. This is an outpatient procedure done in my office. It takes less than 10 minutes and is not a surgery. It showed that my patient has early myelodysplastic syndrome or MDS. In MDS, some of the cells in the bone marrow are damaged and have problems making new blood cells. Many of the blood cells formed by the damaged bone marrow cells are defective. Defective cells often die earlier than normal cells and the body also destroys some abnormal blood cells, leaving the patient with low blood counts because there arent enough normal blood cells. In my patient, she had severe anemia and so I started her on Procrit, or erythropoietin. It is a natural substance secreted by the kidneys and it stimulates bone marrow to make more RBCs or red blood cells. This is an injection that is given in my office once a week. She is responding well to her shots. She is feeling stronger and does not require any more blood transfusions. Remember, if you are anemic, do not ignore it. If you are getting tired of feeling tired, do something about it. Anemia is not normal and it should be appropriately treated. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Special to the ChronicleThe Citrus County Board of County Commissioners proclaimed Sept. 23 as Falls Prevention Awareness Day in Citrus County. One out of three adults age 65 and older will fall each year and this number increases to one in two by the age of 80. Falls are the leading cause of injury death and the most common cause of nonfatal injuries and hospital admissions for trauma. By the year of 2020, the annual direct and indirect cost of fall injuries in the United is expected to reach $67.7 billion. Older adults can remain independent and reduce their chances of falling through regular exercise, reviewing their medications with their health care provider, having their vision check annually and making their homes safer by installing safety devices.

Hope begins with a meal. 000HQOE Community Happenings Community Happenings Q.I broke a tooth a few weeks ago and went to the dentist for the first time in about six years. When the dentist looked at the tooth he said it was not too bad and the tooth could be saved with a crown. He also suggested I come back to make sure there were no other things going on. It made sense, so I made the appointment. Once the dentist was done with his exam and X-rays he told me I have some gum problems that can be addressed with deep scaling. This made sense as well, since it has been so many years. The thing I was confused about is he told me I had an abscess on my front tooth that has had a crown since I was a kid. I have no pain with this tooth and was so surprised to hear such a thing. When I asked about it he asked me about any trauma to the area. In fact, I was hit in that area as a child. That is why I have the crown on the tooth. The dentist told me that this is not usual and suggested I see a specialist for a root canal. I love your column and read it every week. Even though this all seems to make sense I thought I would ask you your opinion. Thanks for a great read every week.A.You have made things easy for me this week. Maybe I should say your dentist made things easy for me instead. Everything that you mentioned makes perfect sense to me. It sounds as though your dentist is on the right track. I like the idea that he suggested a crown for the broken tooth. A crown is the most predictable restoration for a broken tooth. There are cases where the break is not too bad and an onlay may be beneficial, as well. An onlay is a restoration that preserves as much natural tooth as possible, while still holding the tooth together. Your gum problem does not surprise me since you have been away from the dental office for a while. What he has suggested is the standard of care. In addition, it is very predictable. The situation with your front tooth also makes sense. It is very common to get an infection in the bone surrounding the tip of a root of a tooth that has had an episode of trauma, even years later. The best way to address it is through root canal therapy, though there are times that a surgical procedure may be necessary. This, too, is very predictable. I am glad to say that you are on the right track. There are so many times when people come to me for a second opinion when I do not get to say the same. It is refreshing to know that you have been handled so well. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S.

Some 450 gathered to begin the 2014-16 administration. With State President Carole Weavers two-year special project, Canine Companions For Independence, we brought donations of snacks for dog recipients and their families that are in training with their dog. The Juniors brought lightcolored pillowcases to decorate and donate to the Ronald McDonald House. Our featured speaker was First Lt. Jeffrey Adams, who lost his leg to a roadside bomb while stationed in Iraq. Life with his assistance dog, Sharif, has been made easier. He calls him his Battle Buddy. A Boeing Corp. employee and a resident of Alabama, Adams is an instructor who helps other wounded warriors learn to ski. Fall Boards Barktoberfest was the theme of the weekend. We left our fancy clothes at home, had a Doggies on Parade with board members dressed as the varied assistance dogs served by Canine Companions For Independence. There were Dog House Banks decorated by the district directors so we could vote for the best one and there was a prize given to the member who was wearing the most Florida pins. It was won by Doris Karlik, who proudly wore her 166 pins collected during her 43-year membership. During dessert we enjoyed the sidesplitting humor of Jeanne Robertson on PowerPoint. The Interaction Luncheon kept our thinking caps active and our Barktoberfest was made complete with Saturday nights German dancers performing and inviting us to join them in dancing to their native Austrian and German folk music. The Passing of the Hat dance brought continuous applause. In the Conservation Workshop we learned the serious need for water and land conservation and protection of our drinking water and that funding for Amendment One will allow the purchase of land for water resource management and scientific research, decisions about water conservation and preservation of our natural resources through dock stamp funding. Florida clubwomen support ACT, the planting of trees. Coastal cleanup is promoted as adopting, rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing wildlife, and Envirothons also has high school student participation. It was a great Fall Board of Florida Federated clubwomen sharing and learning ways we can reach out to others in our community, the district, the state and beyond in unity and diversity.Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community.

Special to the ChronicleCitrus County citizens who need financial help to get their dogs or cats spayed/neutered will be able to apply for assistance through Snippet Citrus at 352436-4268 starting Wednesday, Oct. 1. The group is partnering with PetLuv Spay and Neuter Clinic in Brooksville, which can provide services for the citizens in the south part of Citrus County. In the north section of the county, the partner is Dunnellon Animal Hospital and the central area is covered by Humanitarians of Florida. The recent Celebrity Pet Pawty winner was a rescue kitten named Krista. She was entered by The Hardin Haven Cat Rescue, which is affiliated with The Humanitarians of Florida in Crystal River. The Hardin Haven spays, neuters and vaccinates all kittens and cats they receive and then tries to find them their forever homes. They are a nonprofit and this is all done through private donations. They receive no government funding. Krista was lucky because someone found her and took her to Hardin Haven, where she was fostered by a loving employee until she was ready for adoption. Her foster mom, Kate, took the winning photo. Krista has found her new home with Lisa Davis and is now known as Tango. Her new family, also adopted another kitten from The Haven and her name is TuTu. Her watercolor portrait donated by Lorraine Clark, Pet Portraits and Suncoast Service Dogs will be on display at Fat Cat Grill in Crystal River during 2015.

Special to the ChronicleUF-IFAS Citrus County Extension Service October Plant Seminars will discuss protecting landscape plants from cold weather. Sometimes Mother Nature helps by acclimating plants to cold weather and dormancy. Most times, she does not. Plants have a better chance of withstanding the effects of cold weather if they are healthy and have acclimated and attained dormancy. Regardless, some plants may need protection. This seminar will discuss the best ways to provide cold protection. The schedule for the free plant seminars is: Oct. 1 (first Wednesday) at 2 p.m. at Floral City Library. Oct. 8 (second Wednesday) at 1:30 p.m. at Central Ridge Library, Beverly Hills. Oct. 10 (second Friday) at 1:30 p.m. at Coastal Region Library, Crystal River.

Specifically, GSWCF is in greatest need of troop leaders. These volunteers work with a group of girls throughout the year and mentor them as they make new friends and develop skills that will last a lifetime; essentially, they are the core of many girls experiences in Girl Scouting. At least two adult troop leaders are needed for a Girl Scout troop to form. In addition to troop leaders, GSWCF is seeking volunteers to fill a variety of other positions. Volunteers are needed to work behind the scenes to support troop leaders or to train other volunteers. Volunteers are also needed to work directly with girls as program facilitators or as camp facilitators at local Girl Scout camps. Got a knack for business? Volunteers are needed to help girls reach their goals as they run their very own business through the Girl Scout Cookie Program. For more information on how to join, volunteer, reconnect or donate to Girl Scouts of West Central Florida, visit www.gswcf.org or call 800881-4475. Girl Scouts need leaders, volunteers
C8TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER30, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Laurence J. Peter, who was a Canadian educator, said, If two wrongs dont make a right, try three. We have been looking at deals with two potential trump suits, not three. By far the best analysis of the subject was written by Albert Morehead for his book, Morehead on Bidding. This was updated by Alan Truscott and your Present Author under the title On Bidding. It was an easy job because it was such a good book. Sadly, it has been out of print for years, but maybe you can find a copy online. In todays deal, the problem is not locating the best trump fit, but landing in a game contract that can be made. North-South have only one eight-card fit. Five diamonds, though, can be defeated if East establishes his club trick quickly. Then the defenders will take two hearts and one club. Reaching a 4-3-fit contract is always difficult. Here, Souths three-heart cue-bid asks North to bid three no-trump with a heart stopper. When North cannot oblige, he shows three-card spade support. (With four spades, he would have raised on the previous round.) Then South, with such strong spades, goes with the 4-3 fit, the only game that cannot be defeated. West leads the heart three. East takes two tricks in the suit and best plays a third round. Ruffing this trick will be fatal unless the trumps are breaking 3-3. Instead, South discards a club. If East either plays a fourth heart or shifts to the club king, declarer can win, draw trumps and claim.

PGManhattan Dear Annie: I have been married to Phil for 15 years. Between the two of us, we have eight children. Our youngest is still in school. The problem is, Im not happy anymore. Ive made mistakes, stupid ones, including flirting with other men. Phil isnt completely innocent, either, but he claims if I werent talking to these other men, he wouldnt have approached other women. My oldest daughter takes Phils side and says I ruined the family. I dont think he should have been running to her to complain when she was only 16. Shes since moved out, and hes now telling our next oldest daughter, who is 14, about our problems. I think this is sick and immature. Phil recently told me he was giving me the opportunity to leave, although I dont need his permission. Im staying because I refuse to abandon my children. Ive admitted my wrongdoings. Ive also made it clear that Im staying only for the kids and dont love Phil anymore. I suspect neither one of us could survive on our own. Im tired of playing happy family, living with an obsessive man who refuses to understand that Im not the sole cause of our problems. Its both of us. Im not looking for another relationship. Im looking for some peace. Any suggestions? Miserable and Stuck Dear Miserable: Yes. Get counseling with or without Phil and find out how to cope with the situation. Married couples who are obviously miserable and sniping at each other but insist on staying together for the sake of the children are not providing the loving, stable environment that children need. And Phil should absolutely not be confiding in your teenage daughters about your marital difficulties. Its manipulative and inappropriate. Shame on him. Dear Annie: This is for my in-laws, who wonder why we dont have joint parties with both sides of the family: When your son and I married, I had the crazy notion that our families could get together with the expectation that everyone would get along and behave civilly. Apparently, you didnt share that idea. I remember the snide comments, the ridicule about my family and the hurtful jokes made regarding our nationality. You couldnt even be in the same room without saying something disrespectful. I tried for 10 years, and then I said never again. For the past 20 years, weve alternated holidays, and weve seen your family dwindle. This Thanksgiving, its my familys turn and your kids wont be around. Enjoy spending the holidays by yourself. Had It Dear Had It: Have you or your husband told your inlaws that the reason you no longer include them with your family is because they behave so disrespectfully? We cant guarantee that it would make any difference, but sometimes, given the opportunity and the understanding, people can learn to change their behavior especially if the alternative is so lonely. Dear Annie: I have a suggestion for Mom, whose daughters new college roommate wants her boyfriend to spend the night. The daughter should invite everyone on the floor to her dorm room for a popcorn party and make sure the roommate also helps make the popcorn. She can do this any night the boyfriend plans to sleep over. If she is having trouble finding enough friends to come over, she could take photos all over campus and invite people to come by to see them. Or ask other students about the best places to hang out or which classes to take. These things will help her make friends and also keep the dorm room too crowded for canoodling.
