PATFAHERTY Staff writerDr. Ravi S. Chari, vice president of clinical excellence with Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), will be the keynote speaker at the annual Economic Development Council Awards Luncheon on Friday. HCA is scheduled to sign a 50-year lease this month giving it control of Citrus Memorial hospital. The company is comprised of locally managed facilities that include about 165 hospitals and 115 freestanding surgery centers in 20 states and England and employs approximately 204,000 people. While Chari has a background in surgery, he also holds a masters degree in business administration. He started with HCA in 2008 as chief medical officer at the companys flagship hospital in Nashville, Tennessee. He was promoted to his current position in 2011 to lead the corporate-wide Clinical Excellence initiative. Prior to joining HCA, he was a professor of surgery and cancer biology and chief of the Division of Hepatobiliary Surgery and Liver Transplantationat V anderbilt University Medical Center. The Chronicle recently had the opportunity to ask Chari a few questions about the forthcoming change in ownership. Here are his answers: CHRONICLE: If you were addressing an audience of potential patients in a new All health care is local, says HCA care chief Dr. Ravi S. Charivice president of clinical excellence, HCA. See HCA/ Page A10 MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerLori Greene has big plans. The owner and operator of Elite Services & Events LLC of Homosassa is staging the Great Florida Yard Sale the second weekend in November. Its a 15-mile series of yard sales over three days on U.S. 19 between U.S. 98 in Chassahowitzka and the Crystal River Mall. The idea is to copy much larger highway yard sales that have captivated regions of the country. The longest one goes through 20 states and has been going on over 20 years, Greene said. Thats a very long sale. This is probably one of the smallest. They probably all started this small. Greene is selling space at $30 a pop to vendors, who will sell their wares in participating business parking lots along the route. She said 90 percent of the vendor rentals will go to two local veterans organizations. But she has run into some roadblocks, including: Greene repeatedly told a reporter that the yard sale was reviewed by county permitting officials and approved. However, county spokeswoman Tobey Phillips said just the opposite. She said Greene has refused to provide details about the yard sale to the countys Huge yard sale draws ire, scrutiny Billed as vets fundraiser, event rankles organizers of annual festival and may lack necessary permit Special to the ChronicleThe Great Florida Yard Sale is billed as a fundraiser for two veterans organizations, but the promoter has neither a county business license nor permit to stage the event.

The house, now a store, is a landmark in the Crystal River community. Today, its Heritage House Gifts from the Heart. However, for Laura Lou (Tolle) Fitzpatrick, its the place where her grandmother, Edna Mae, and greataunt, Ada B, grew up. But even before that, the house goes back to Beulah Miller Willis Eubanks, Edna and Adas mother. Her first husband, M.P. Willis, built the house in the 1880s. Willis died in the 1890s and Beulah married J.K. Eubanks. Eubanks was a businessman in the growing town of Crystal River. As a road contractor, he built the old highway between Crystal River and Yankeetown. He was a cattle rancher, had an orange grove, ran a seafood business on Millers Point, directly across from Petes Pier, and is Heritage is its hearth Editors note:This is part of an occasional Then and Now series spotlighting historic buildings around Citrus County.

Special to the ChronicleToday has been proclaimed Ronnie and Sherry Reid Day in the city of Crystal River. The proclamation came on Monday, Sept. 22, at the Crystal River City Council meeting and was issued by Mayor Jim Farley to the Reids. As onlookers watched, it became obvious that the longtime Crystal River Church of God pastors were completely surprised as Farley read through the proclamation, announcing that Oct. 5 would bear their names in honor. As the mayor finished, he invited Pastor Ronnie, as he is affectionately known by his congregation, to speak. We are so humbled. We were asked to come here tonight, and told that it had to do with our upcoming Pastor Appreciation service. We are so honored to be remembered this way, Reid said. We love Crystal River and being a part of this community. For the past five years, Reid has been the lead organizer for the National Day of Prayer for the west side, reaching out to other ministers and hosting the event behind Crystal River City Hall in the park. Over the years, he has been very supportive, opening the church as a polling location, hosting a YMCA camp and providing meals for student athletes. Each year the Church of God hosts several family-friendly events, including the baccalaureate service for Crystal River High School seniors and families, along with their annual Fall Festival, which is held each year on Oct. 31. We will continue each year to hold this event on Halloween, because we want to make sure that the community has a safe place for the kids to have fun, Reid said. The pastor was recently recognized for his 25 years of ministry with the Church of God, and currently serves as the regional bishop to more than 14 churches in Florida. He has frequently been invited to minister across the United States, as well as countries including Uruguay and Ecuador. His wife Sherry is also a sought-out speaker for ladies conferences, and has served on the State Womens Ministries and the Heart of Florida Youth Ranch boards. They have two daughters, Jillian and Lauren, who are both graduates of CRHS. Opening their doors and their hearts to the community is what the Reids said they envisioned when they first came to Crystal River in 1993. The church has partnered with many local agencies and organizations, such as the Health Department, the Community Alliance, The Spot Family Center and many more. However, they are known for ministering to those who are less fortunate through their ElShaddai Food Pantry, a partner of the Community Food Bank, which currently feeds 400 families each month. Under Pastor Ronnie and Sherrys leadership, the Crystal River Church of God has grown from 45 to more than 800 congregants who call the church their home. This morning, at both the 8:30 and 11 a.m. services, Ronnie and Sherry Reid Day will be celebrated at the church, with a dinner reception to follow for those who have secured tickets.A2SUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE LOCAL 527-0012 72 HOUR BLIND FACTORY BLINDS BLINDS 1657 W.

Jennings was supposed to have been with Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. The Big Bopper Richardson when the crooners were killed in a 1959 plane crash that became known as The Day the Music Died. Two decades later, members of Hollys band, the Crickets, tracked down the red Ariel Cyclone and gave it to Jennings as a birthday gift that he kept in his living room until he died in 2002. The bike is among thousands of items that Jennings estate is putting on the auction block Sunday online and at the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix. Jennings, known for his black cowboy hat, recorded 16 No. 1 country singles over his decadeslong career. His hits include the theme from the Dukes of Hazard, a television show that he also narrated, and the Willie Nelson duet Mammas Dont Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys. Something literally connected to Nelson also will be up for sale: his braids. The signature locks were presented in 1983 as a gift to celebrate Jennings sobriety at a party thrown by Johnny Cash, said Arlan Ettinger, co-founder of Guernseys, the New York City-based auction house running the sale. Jennings teamed with Nelson, Cash and Kris Kristofferson to form the country super group the Highwaymen. Their original contract, signed by all four members, is also up for sale. Ettinger wouldnt estimate how much the items would go for. Its very hard to say, particularly when something is made valuable by virtue of its history, Ettinger said. But the motorcycle, I certainly think its going to bring hundreds of thousands of dollars. Jennings widow, singer Jessi Colter, who lives in Arizona, provided the items for sale, which also include guitars, handwritten song lyrics, a letter signed by John Lennon and a boxing robe worn by Muhammad Ali, Ettinger said. The singer lived in suburban Phoenix when he died in 2002 at age 64. Ettinger said he had considered holding the auction in Nashville, but Colter said her husband loved Arizona more than most places. Some auction proceeds will benefit Phoenix Childrens Hospital per Colters wishes.Keillor announces another Joke ShowMINNEAPOLIS Get your knock-knock jokes ready.

Associated PressPORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti Jean-Claude Duvalier, who presided over what was widely acknowledged as a corrupt and brutal regime as the selfproclaimed president for life of Haiti until a popular uprising sent him into a 25-year exile, has died. He was 63. Duvalier died Saturday from a heart attack at the home of a friend in Port-auPrince, said his lawyer, Reynold Georges, and several officials in the impoverished nation. The former leader, known as Baby Doc, made a surprise return to Haiti in 2011, allowing victims of his regime to pursue legal claims against him in Haitian courts and prompting some old allies to rally around him. Neither side gained much traction, however, and a frail Duvalier spent his final years quietly in the leafy hills above the Haitian capital. Haitian President Michel Martelly expressed his condolences to the former dictators family, making no mention of the widespread human rights abuses that occurred under Duvalier and his notorious predecessor and father, Francois Papa Doc Duvalier. Papa Doc tortured and killed political opponents, relying on a dreaded civilian militia known as the Tonton Macoutes. In 1971, Francois Duvalier suddenly died of an illness after naming his son to succeed him. At 19, Jean-Claude Duvalier became the worlds youngest president. Jean-Claude Duvalier ruled for 15 years, retaining the Tonton Macoutes and the brutality of his fathers regime. The sons administration was seen as less violent and repressive than that of the father, though it perhaps was more corrupt. Duvalier is survived by his ex-wife, Michele, and two children.

Associated PressJEFFERSON CITY, Mo. In a rush to keep electronic cigarettes out of childrens hands while the federal government creeps forward with a proposed national ban for minors, experts say that many states are passing laws that could mean fewer restrictions on the nicotine devices later. Lawmakers last month made Missouri the 41st state to outlaw selling e-cigarettes to minors. Age restrictions have wide support, but Gov. Jay Nixon and public health advocates opposed a piece of the legislation that prevents tobacco taxes or regulations from being imposed on the electronic devices, which heat liquid nicotine into an inhalable vapor. E-cigarette makers have been in a tugof-war with state and federal governments since the devices first were sold in the U.S. in 2007. A 2009 law gave the U.S. Food and Drug Administration the power to regulate a number of aspects of tobacco marketing and manufacturing. It said it planned to assert authority over e-cigarettes in 2011, but it hasnt yet done so. In April, the FDA for the first time proposed a set of regulations for e-cigarettes, including banning sales to minors and requiring health warning labels, as well as approving new products. The agency has said its proposal sets a foundation for regulating the products, but the rules wouldnt immediately ban the wide array of flavors of e-cigarettes or curb marketing on places like TV. Scientists havent finished much research on e-cigarettes, and the studies that have been done have been inconclusive. The government is pouring millions into research to supplement independent and company studies on the health risks of e-cigarettes and other tobacco products as well as who uses them and why. Most lawmakers, as well as e-cigarette manufacturers, agree that they dont belong in childrens hands. Yet as states enact age restrictions, experts say lawmakers could also be making it more difficult to regulate and tax e-cigarettes down the road if the FDA determines theyre unhealthy. Of the states that have banned e-cigarette sales to minors, 31 have specified that e-cigarettes are alternative nicotine or vapor devices, not traditional tobacco cigarettes, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Some lawmakers say these definitions would prevent e-cigarettes from later being treated as a tobacco product, but others disagree. Missouris law apparently is the first to explicitly state that ecigarettes cant be regulated or taxed as a tobacco product, said Michael Eriksen, dean of the School of Public Health at Georgia State University. Laws skirting those restrictions have the blessing of e-cigarette companies, which contend that the devices arent the same as regular paper-and-tobacco cigarettes and dont pose the same public health risks, so taxing and regulating them the same way doesnt make sense. Development Services Department and is only permitted to place signs in the road rights of way in the days leading up to the event. It may be too late to get a permit. Phillips said county ordinances require an event of this size receive county commission approval 45 days beforehand. If that stands, the deadline has passed. Greene raised the ire of Homosassa Seafood Festival planners, who wonder why she chose the weekend of the 40th annual festival to have the yard sale. Greene, who has lived in the Homosassa area off and on since 1982, said she didnt know the festival was the same weekend. She said shes never attended the Homosassa Seafood Festival and that a county tourism official incorrectly told her in May that there was no competing event the weekend of Nov. 8 and 9. Jim Bitter, vice president of the Homosassa Civic Club, which conducts the seafood festival, doesnt buy it. The sole purpose for choosing that weekend was to draw on the traffic coming into Citrus County for the seafood festival, he said. Thats the only logical reason they would pick that weekend. Greene said she wanted those dates because they precede Veterans Appreciation Week. Elite Services was incorporated in 2011 but does not have a county business license. Greene said she doesnt need one. A spokeswomanat the Citrus County Tax Collectors Office said all corporations must pay the $25 annual tax. Greene has never organized a yard sale of this type. Her only other Citrus County promotion, she said, was a consignment sale at the National Guard Armory in 2010. Mike Klyap, who heads one of the two veterans organizations that will benefit from the yard sale, shrugged off any concerns. I have faith in her that shes doing the right thing, he said. Much of Greenes promotional experience is in Tyler, Texas, about 100 miles from Dallas, where she owns Elite Concierge Unlimited, and Elite Services. Greene said her events have drawn thousands of people to convention centers. The All About Events Expo, scheduled for Jan. 3, 2015, at the Harvey Convention Center in Tyler, lists Elite Services as a sponsor and Greene as one of three contacts for vendors. Greene said she lived years ago in Homosassa and that her son attended Citrus County schools. The family moved to Massachusetts and then to Texas, and then returned to Florida in 2009. Other than the 2010 consignment sale, Greene said she hasnt done any promotions or events in Citrus County or Florida. She got the idea of the Great Florida Yard Sale after attending other highway yard sales, including the Historic U.S. 80 Hi-Way Sale thats been in existence for 25 years and started in east Texas. The twice-a-year sale stretches through Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. Greene also said she wanted to do something for veterans groups, noting that her son was in the military. She sought out Crystal Rivers Veterans Economic Development Center Inc., which helps companies owned by disabled veterans receive training and government contracts. Both the VEDC and Mission in Citrus veterans homeless shelter will benefit from the yard sale. Three hundred spaces are available, though Greene said she only expects 100 to sell. Greene promises 90 percent of her revenue to the two veterans organizations. Its not a money-making thing, she said. Theres potential to make money, but theres no money to make here. These two charities are working hand in hand with me. Greene sought participation by businesses along U.S. 19 with parking lots large enough to hold vendors and vehicles. She said none of the vendors will be along the rights of way and that someone from the Department of Transportation told her a state permit wasnt necessary. Greene asked for financial assistance from the Citrus County Tourist Development Council, which agreed to reimburse her up to $2,500 if she can provide hotel records showing overnight stays by vendors or visitors to the yard sale. In an interview, Greene acknowledged that will be difficult to do. That wont cover the gas of me driving up and down 19, she said. Klyap, president of the Veterans Economic Development Center, gives Greene credit for trying. Anybody whos willing to help the veterans, Im all for it, he said. Greene said shes heard rumblings of people who question her motives. Its something new for this area and people just dont see the vision for it, she said. This is something that builds. Sometimes I dont get why people dont see it.A8SUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL /NATION HOW TO PURCHASE: GO TO WWW.CHRONICLEONLINE.COM/CLICKANDSAVE CLICK GET DEAL CREATE AN ACCOUNT PLACE THE ORDER PRINT YOUR VOUCHER AND REDEEM IN THE STORE *Deals may only be purchased through chronicleonline.com/clickandsave This ad is not a redeemable co upon.

Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS The parents of an Indiana man threatened with beheading by the Islamic State group are pleading with his captors to free him, saying in a video statement Saturday that their son has devoted his life to humanitarian work and aiding Syrias war refugees. Ed and Paula Kassigs video was released a day after the Islamic State groups online video threatened to behead 26-year-old Peter Kassig next following the beheading of British aid worker Alan Henning. That video was a heartbreaking development for Kassigs family and friends, who had stayed silent since his capture while working to secure his release. In the familys video, Ed Kassig says his son, who now goes by the first name Abdul-Rahman after converting to Islam during his captivity, was captured on Oct. 1, 2013, in Syria, where he was providing aid for refugees fleeing that countrys civil war. He says his son has grown to love and admire the Syrian people, after growing up in an Indianapolis family with a long history of humanitarian work and teaching. Our son was living his life according to that same humanitarian call when he was taken captive, says Ed Kassig, a teacher. The family says Kassig, a former Army Ranger, formed the aid organization Special Emergency Response and Assistance, or SERA, in Turkey to provide aid and assistance to Syrian refugees. He began delivering food and medical supplies to Syrian refugee camps in 2012 and is also a trained medical assistant who provided trauma care to injured Syrian civilians and helped train 150 civilians in providing medical aid. His work in Lebanon led to his capture, after which SERA suspended its aid efforts. Paula Kassig, a nurse, sits next to her husband on a couch in the couples three-minute video, wearing a head scarf and holding a photo of her son as she speaks directly to him. Most of all, know that we love you, and our hearts ache for you to be granted your freedom so we can hug you again and then set you free to continue the life you have chosen, the life of service to those in greatest need, she says. We implore those who are holding you to show mercy and use their power to let you go. community, how would you define HCA? DR. CHARI: HCA is committed to the care and improvement of human lives, and we strive to provide high-quality care, cost-effective care in the communities we serve and we have a long history of doing of that. Were really built on the foundation of our mission and values. And we put our patients first; we work to constantly improve the care we give. We have sophisticated data systems, we take measurements, we support our caregivers and we make sure that patient safety and patient care is the highest quality in our system. We have a long history of investing in our communities, and thats really important to us. We make sure that our facilities are well-equipped and we have the right staff and the right support for our physicians to deliver the highest quality care. CHRONICLE: Given the long, tumultuous process that has led up to this transition, what would you tell residents to make them feel more comfortable about HCA? DR. CHARI: I would go back to a lot of what I said in the previous question. We have a long track record of being committed to the care that we deliver in our communities. Our history is replete with examples of our commitment to providing the highest-quality, cost-effective health care in the communities we serve. CHRONICLE: Will Citrus Memorial hospital and clinic patients realize any actual immediate benefits from this transition? DR. CHARI: I think for us when we look at facilities the things that we have that we really leverage to maybe see an immediate impact is our way of evaluating facilities, ensuring that we have the right management systems and structures in place and ensuring that we have the right way of measuring care; right from our timely delivery of emergency care to ensuring that we have some of the highest performance of core managers and the lowest risk in terms of patient safety. CHRONICLE: On the topic of your speech, Primum non nocere (First do no harm): Healing the Patient andthe System, can we expect a local focus or a more global perspective? DR. CHARI: When I mention that HCA is really committed to care and providing that care, we really understand that all health care is local. So on one side of course there are macros in the health care industry that affect local care and the delivery of health care. Alternatively, theres a flavor of how the delivery is executed and how that affects the local health care market. When we talk about the idea of first do no harm and healing the patient and the system, we really talk about what are the key elements that we see from a health care system standpoint that we feel increase the way that value is delivered in a health care system. CHRONICLE: What are a couple of things you see that need to happen in the coming year to improve Citrus Memorial, particularly the clinics? DR. CHARI: I really think the changes that youll see are changes across all of health care and especially all of our system within HCA that were really committed to changing. What does that mean? It really comes down to two focus areas for us. One is about data and the transparency of our performance data right now on how health care is delivered. What we need to meet our external performance expectation and our standards that we can create because were as large as we are and can get some real understanding of what is truly possible in health care. Were large enough that we can ensure that we understand best practice across our system as well as understand best practice in evidence-based medicine. So that transparency of data is one real element. The second element that were looking at in terms of ensuring that were delivering the highest-quality care is formulating the idea of a high-performing clinical team where each person involved in that team is important and understands that they are there to ensure the highest integrity of care and take ownership and are accountable for delivering that care. CHRONICLE: Any other areas you would like to cover? DR. CHARI: As I mentioned, HCA has a long history of commitment to care and the breadth of experience across 20 different states in 42 markets. We can help shape health care because of our size.

Associated PressMORTON, Ill. Every year between August and early November, Steve Beuttel eats a lot of pumpkin pie. I try to make it every day, and Im usually pretty good at it it being what he calls quality control. Beuttel is the operations manager for the Libbys pumpkin cannery thats at the epicenter of the canned-pumpkin world: the small central Illinois town of Morton. For 13 or so weeks, a seemingly endless line of big rigs delivers pumpkins millions of them thatll become countless pies and loaves of sweet, fresh-baked pumpkin bread. Somewhere between 80 and 85 percent of all the canned pumpkin consumed in the United States comes from this cannery, owned by parentcompany Nestle USA. That gives Morton a pretty good claim to the title it embraces, Pumpkin Capital of the World. And in a good year with a cool Midwestern summer like this one, Libbys has the cannery running day and night. No place else grows the pumpkins the cannery needs, so a bad year in Mortons pumpkin fields can mean pumpkin panic. That happened in 2009, when wet weather meant a small crop as many pumpkins were left to rot in muddy fields. About 10 days before Thanksgiving that year, we put out an alert, Nestle spokeswoman Roz OHearn said. You better buy it when you see it because weve had to suspend the harvest. ... We had reports that people were going into their local supermarkets and, where they would see it, people would like sweep the shelf (of cans). Pumpkins arent quite everything in Morton, but they mean a lot to the former farming town providing an annual festival, about 150 seasonal cannery jobs and another 50 or so year-round in this town of 16,000. Pumpkins give Morton an identity beyond being a bedroom community for nearby Peoria, said John Ackerman. He grows 30 acres of pumpkins for Nestle and another 30 to sell from his farm. Were the people that have pumpkin pancakes at our Pumpkin Festival, he said. Its fun. We understand just how much Midwest Americana that is. We enjoy it. Other than the arrival of Interstate 74 in the 1960s, no other event quite defines Morton as much as the beginning of pumpkin canning in the 1950s, according to Mary Lynn, curator of the history room at the Morton Public Library. The freeway connected Morton to Peoria, where many residents now work. And the cannery, formerly used for a range of canned vegetables, helped claim the pumpkin-capital title, something that had been pinned on another small town about 16 miles away, Eureka. Several thousand acres around Morton are now planted every year with pumpkin seed provided by Nestle. The company checks the land of contract farmers more than 200 in some years for production potential. Beuttell wont say exactly what the company looks for, but in general, Good pumpkin soil drains well, has a good nitrogen content, (and) has a little bit of sand in it, actually. The company has high standards, Ackerman said. They have to test their soils to a high degree, he said, adding that his squashes are regularly tasted. The pumpkins Nestle wants arent the pretty varieties prized for carving. Theyre Dickinsons: beige, oblong, thin-skinned and grown lying on their sides. What matters is whats inside, a thick layer of rich, brightorange meat, Beuttell said. When the plant is canning, there are two dominant smells: pungent pure pumpkin, not too different from any steamed vegetable, Beuttel said, and the pie and pumpkin bread mixes, laced with nutmeg and cinnamon. It fills the air, most definitely, he said.A12SUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION 000JBQH 000JG51 Pulmonary Group Of Central Florida Dr. Jose Diaz, M.D. Accepting New Patients Call Sandy at 352-201-8448 Participating with most insurance plans 000JF47 000JG72 6575 W.

Associated PressTUCSON, Ariz. North of the U.S.Mexico border, a relatively barren stretch of an Arizona highway is lined with road signs that tell drivers how many kilometers they are from their destination not how many miles. The markers from Nogales to Tucson are a relic of a failed Carter administration pilot program that aimed to convince Americans to adopt the system of measure in use across much of the rest of the world. The roughly 60-mile stretch (or about 100 kilometers) is the only continuous highway in the U.S. with metric signs, and its the subject of a long-simmering spat over whether they should be changed back to the standard system. When Im driving, I definitely cant do that math, said Nick Rodriguez, a 24year-old who lives in Rio Rico. Some who agree with Rodriguez took a shot at changing the signs four years ago when the state, which oversees them, received $1.5 million in federal stimulus funding. The Arizona Department of Transportation at the time said the signs were outdated and needed to be replaced with ones that are brighter and easier to read. You get wear and tear on them. Obviously, theyre out in the heat in Arizona. Eventually were going to have to replace those signs, spokesman Dustin Krugel said. They also said the new signs would be in miles. The plan sparked vocal opposition that helped stall the replacement project. Area business owners said new signs in miles would change the exit numbers they advertise. The highway is measured in kilometers, so road markers and exit numbers would change, they said. It had a lot of opposition because people felt it was something that relates to tourism, Jim DiGiacomo, president of the Green Valley-Sahuarita Chamber of Commerce, said. The hotels and businesses would have to change all of their info. Mexico also uses the metric system and many in the area consider the signs a hospitality measure for Mexican tourists who visit Tucson and Phoenix. The Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce said in August that Mexican nationals spend about $1 billion each year in shopping and tourism in Pima County. The need to change approximately 400 signs still stands, but the state doesnt have the funds to replace them, Krugel said. Next time around, however, the department plans on seeking public comment before deciding whether the new signs will still be in kilometers or miles. There likely will be a significant group that urges keeping things around I-19 just as they are. Personally, I think its neat that my guests ask me why (the signs) are in metric, said Jim Green, owner of The Inn at San Ignacio in Green Valley. All of the tourists were talking to, theres never been an instance where they were bothered because they werent in miles.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014 A13 000JH82 Minimum charges apply.

While checking Cannon for possible weapons, approximately 0.9 grams of methamphetamine and a glass pipe were found in his possession. Cannons bond was set at $3,000. Citrus County Sheriffs Office Burglaries A vehicle burglary was reported at 6:22 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 2, in the 5100 block of S. Castlelake Ave., Floral City. A vehicle burglary was reported at 11:05 a.m. Oct. 2 in the 6700 block of S. Merleing Loop, Floral City. A commercial burglary was reported 11:43 a.m. Oct. 2 in the 3700 block of E. Ming Court, Inverness. reported to have owned the first automobile in Crystal River and gave people rides for a small fare. Eubanks and Beulah had one daughter, Edna Mae. Ada Bs father was M.P Willis. Edna Mae married Hugh Barco. Their daughter was Kay Barco, who married Ed Tolle, a former Crystal River city councilman. Kay Tolle died in 2012. The Tolles daughter is Laura Lou Fitzpatrick. My roots run deep in Crystal River, she said. Ada B and my grandmother were sisters, Fitzpatrick said. The front room of this house was a bedroom, and thats where my grandmother was born. Ada B, who was 15 years older than Edna Mae, married Harvey Edwards, and together they owned and ran the Dixon Hotel, which was located where the parking lot for Crackers Bar & Grill sits now. When Ada B and Uncle Harvey sold the Dixon Hotel, they moved here, Fitzpatrick said. They still had people who liked to come to Crystal River to visit, so they made guest quarters upstairs and turned the porch into a bedroom. My mom used to say when she was a little girl and she stayed over, they had to go outside to go (upstairs) to bed. Ada B became well known around Crystal River as a music teacher. She taught piano and voice, Fitzpatrick said. When I was a child, of course I was expected to take piano lessons; my brother, too. Back then, she also taught etiquette. Piano recitals were here in the house we still have the folding chairs that we put out. These were special events, she said. We dressed formal, and the dining table thats in our green room now was where wed all have punch and finger sandwiches. Aunt B and Uncle Harvey didnt have their own children, and this is where I spent a big part of my childhood. Fitzpatrick grew up in Tropic Terrace, off Ozello Trail, but visited Ada B and Harvey often. Ada B died Oct. 31, 1973, at age 83. In later years, her piano was donated to the Coastal Heritage Museum, where its still on display, along with photos, music books, newspaper clippings and recital programs. Edna Eubanks Barco, a former Citrus County deputy clerk of the circuit court, chief deputy tax assessor and tax assessor, died July 23, 1995, at age 93.In the years after Ada B and Harvey died, the house sat empty for a number of years. In 1982, Kathy Tolle, Fitzpatricks sister-in-law, turned it into Heritage House Country Collectibles. After that, it left the family and was rented out to different people, Fitzpatrick said. It was a quilt shop and then Dot Kohler had Cobblestone Alley (Antiques); it was Mary Beths Bridal and All About Nature, but then when the economy got bad in 2008, the house was empty again. We were concerned, because Heritage House is really the heart of Heritage Village. Thats when I decided to invite some friends to join me and we created Heritage House Gifts from the Heart. Today, Fitzpatrick and three other women buy and sell gifts and merchandise in one eclectic shop. Heritage House is also the hub of the annual Scarecrow Festival each October. That started 27 years ago as an old-fashioned carnival and to help nonprofits raise money, Fitzpatrick said. Today its also the home of Market Day with Art on second Saturdays, and this year will host a Get Shipwrecked event in conjunction with the Stone Crab Jam Nov. 1, benefitting local Rotary clubs and One Rake at a Time.The house at 657 Citrus Ave. hasnt changed all that much in 100-plus years. There used to be a stairwell inside that was removed by Ada B and Harvey. The floors are all original, as is the beadboard on the walls and the ceilings. Its bones are the same. Im always tempted to change the color of the house, but its always been this color (white) ever since I can remember, Fitzpatrick said. We try to keep it as close to the original as we can, and to change it, that wouldnt seem right. Its not right to change our heritage.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy@ chronicleonline.com.A14SUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL 000JEZP DRYER VENT CLEANING DONT LET YOUR DRYER START A FIRE!

Dawn Marie Hays, 42, and Charles M. Roberts, 30, were arrested Thursday and charged with aggravated child neglect with failure to provide care and child abuse with infliction of physical and/ or mental injury. Both were denied bond. According to Roberts arrest affidavit, a school resource officer was told by one of the children that Roberts was beating him. The child stated that Roberts often punished him and the other two children with a belt. The child said he is to put his body in a seated position without a chair and is forced to arch his back for the beatings. Upon investigation, multiple bruises were found around the childs upper thighs and lower back. While investigating Roberts case, officials learned Hays failed to provide another child with the necessary care to cure head lice, resulting in the child having sores on her scalp. A witness advised the child had to use ice packs at night to help stop the itching. The affidavit stated the girl said she is only allowed to shower once or twice a week. She was covered with untreated flea bites and had to walk on feces and urine from eight dogs in her home. According to the report, the home has no toilet or shower facilities. The three children were removed from the home. When Roberts was interviewed, he admitted to the abuse, according to the CCSO report. Hays and Roberts were arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility. HERITAGEContinued from Page A1 C.R. pair face child abuse charges Dawn Hays Charles Roberts For theRECORD

Associated PressDALLAS His week began thousands of miles away with a frantic bid to save a life. It was Monday, Sept. 15, and Ebola, a terrifying disease, was ravaging West Africa, filling morgues and hospitals to capacity. In Monrovia, Liberia, the virus was about to claim one more person. Marthalene Williams, seven months pregnant, had been diagnosed with low blood pressure when she was brought to a clinic, desperately ill. Soon after coming home, she began convulsing. Thomas Eric Duncan, assisted by her family and others, lifted his neighbor into a taxi that rushed to a hospital maternity ward, where she was turned away. The 19-year-old woman returned to her house, where she died hours later. That Thursday, Sept. 19, Duncan arrived at Roberts International Airport in the capital of Monrovia. He was about to embark on a three-leg journey, traveling from Africa, through Europe and into the United States. He would travel more than 8,000 miles before arriving at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport in the early evening of Sept. 20. His temperature, taken before he boarded the plane in Monrovia as part of precautionary government measures, had been below normal. But when he walked out into the steamy Texas night, he carried with him one of the deadliest diseases known to medicine. Ten days later, hed become the first person diagnosed in America with Ebola. The same day that neighbors say Duncan carried his dying neighbor back into her home, the U.S. was calling for an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council to address the growing Ebola crisis. The worst Ebola outbreak in history has swept through Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, and has stretched into Nigeria and Senegal. Nearly 7,500 people are believed to have been sickened by the disease and more than 3,400 have died, according to the World Health Organization. Liberia has been hardest hit, with more than 3,800 cases and slightly more than 2,000 deaths. But even those ghastly numbers likely underestimate the scope of the disaster and the true toll may never be known. The World Health Organization has noted that in the notoriously overcrowded slum of West Point, in the capital, bodies are just tossed into the river. Liberia is woefully lacking beds in isolation units needed to care for people. Doctors Without Borders has described the heartbreaking act of turning away people who seek treatment at their centers in Monrovia. The horrifying impact of Ebola can be seen and heard throughout Liberias capital, from corpses on the street, men pushing the sick in wheelbarrows and the constant wail of ambulances. Even a public service phone message warns Ebola is real before a call comes through. At the airport, nurses wearing white lab coats, face masks and gloves take the temperatures of departing passengers. There are giant dispensers with chlorinated water and buckets for hand-washing. When Duncan arrived Sept. 19, his temperature was taken and recorded on a passenger screening form. It was 97.3. Citing the Ebola outbreak, the form notes: We need your help to prevent the spread of this disease. Ebola is transmitted through direct contact with saliva, sweat and blood. It is not contagious until the symptoms begin. The form asks travelers if they have any of 10 listed symptoms among them, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain and fatigue. Duncan answered no to all. He also was asked if hed taken care of an Ebola patient or touched the body of anyone whod died in an Ebola-stricken area in the last 21 days the incubation period. He answered no to both questions as well. Its unclear if Duncan knew he may have been exposed to Ebola when he boarded his plane. While he had close contact days before with the pregnant woman, who neighbors now believe died from Ebola, she was never tested. It was initially suspected she had died of complications from her pregnancy. This past week, however, Liberian authorities announced plans to prosecute Duncan when he returns, accusing him of lying on the questionnaire. Once in Dallas, Duncan settled in at the Ivy apartment complex in the northeast part of the city, which is home to thousands of immigrants, many of them poor. This melting pot where dozens of languages are spoken is less than a five-minute drive from some of the toniest sections of Dallas. Duncan was staying in a second-floor apartment with Louise Troh, her 13year-old son, Duncans distant cousin and a family friend. On Sept. 25, Duncan was feeling sick enough that he went to the emergency room at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. He was reported to have a fever, headache and abdominal pain, but no diarrhea or vomiting. The hospital said he told them hed recently arrived from West Africa, but that he denied having been around anyone sick. He was released. By Sunday morning, Duncans condition had worsened. Youngor Jallah, 35, the daughter of Louise Troh, went to her mothers apartment to check on him. Hed been vomiting and had diarrhea the previous night. When she arrived with crackers, Gatorade and tea, Duncan was too sick to come out for breakfast. After she found him fully dressed with socks, shivering in bed under a thin polyester blanket, Jallah drove to a Wal-Mart to buy the warmest blanket I could find. When she returned, she noticed red in his eyes. Jallah, a nurses assistant, took his temperature and blood pressure both of which were unusually high and called an ambulance. When it arrived, she warned the staff this man is from a virus country. They returned in protective gear and gloves. Now Jallah is in self-imposed quarantine with her partner, Aaron Yah, and four children in their modest two-bedroom apartment. Shes wracked with regret for not taking precautions. Im having all those bad feelings, she told The Associated Press. Im just doubting myself every minute. Im trying to take my mind off it, but I cant do it. She doesnt kiss or hug her children, ages 2, 4 and 6, or her live-in partners 11-year-old son or share dishes with them. She says she and Yah, also a nurses assistant, often work nights, and had left the children with her mother and Duncan every night of his stay. Yah says he knows his active, affectionate children probably came in close contact with Duncan, but adds: I know that with God, everything is possible, so I am just praying that nothing happens to them. Duncan remains in isolation. He was listed in critical condition Saturday. At the end of the week, Texas health officials said they had narrowed to about 50 the group of people they were monitoring who had some exposure to Duncan. All are having their temperatures taken daily. So far, none have shown symptoms of the virus. Nine people who are considered to be at higher risk are being watched more closely. Duncan has remained in contact by phone with some relatives, including Josephus Weeks, a nephew living in Charlotte, North Carolina. Duncans mother is staying there. It can be scary sometimes and it can be uplifting sometimes, Weeks says of their conversations. The days when Im able to get him to smile, to laugh, those days are good. That means that hes feeling good and hes got a little more strength to fight.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014 A15 000IZQT 000ISE2 000JEGB 776 N.

Associated PressIRAZOLA, Peru In his run for governor of a rough Peruvian jungle state, Manuel Gambini has repeatedly cited his plaudits from the U.S. government for promoting the cultivation of cocoa beans over coca leaves in this cocaine-producing hotspot. But the man the U.S. Agency for International Development held up as recently as 2012 as a dynamic new partner is now under investigation for money laundering, having amassed a curious-sized fortune despite a small mayoral salary. Gambini is among hundreds of candidates in Sundays local and state elections suspected of being bankrolled by drug trafficking, a phenomena that threatens to hijack democracy in a country that became the worlds top cocaine producer two years ago. The infiltration of drug money in Perus politics has become so brazen and widespread as to draw comparisons with the conditions in Colombia and Mexico that preceded major political bloodletting. We are now a despicable reflection of what Colombia was and what Mexico is today, said Sonia Medina, Perus public prosecutor for drug enforcement. Peru is far less violent, but drug-related murders have been on the rise since the mid-2000s, when Colombian and Mexican traffickers began arriving in greater numbers. One of every three Peruvian voters lives in a region with candidates under investigation, on trial or previously convicted of drug-related crimes. Medina said her office has identified 700 such candidates. Gambini, a 43-year-old former coca farmer, is among at least seven gubernatorial candidates in a quarter of Perus 24 states under investigation for drug trafficking or related crimes. A separate narco candidate list compiled by the interior minister names 124 electoral hopefuls, including two current governors. Of note is an incumbent mayor, Silvia Cloud, whose husband is a fugitive drug boss in the Upper Huallaga Valley, cradle of the global cocaine trade. In Irazola, one of Gambinis associates, a convicted cocaine trafficker, is running for mayor. He has been the districts treasurer since 2009. And in the state of Huanuco, Luis Picon is running for re-election even though he faces probes for money laundering, drug trafficking, embezzlement, tax evasion and illegal enrichment. A report by financial investigators details questionable deposits of $4 million mostly in cash made to companies he and two of his brothers own. Picon, who hails from the heart of coca country, denied Medina*s claim that his companies dont make a profit and are propped up by illicit income. We are more than happy to cooperate in this kind of investigation, he told The Associated Press when questioned after a campaign rally last weekend just outside Huanuco, eponymous capital of the state he governs. He said the unusual cash deposits should be investigated scientifically. But Medina says Picon has resisted cooperation at every turn in the moneylaundering probe, which was opened in 2010 and which a local prosecutor tried to shelve last year. That happens to her all the time, Medina says. Picon could soon find resistance more complicated. He has just been ordered to appear Tuesday before a judge after a prosecutor requested he be jailed preventively on charges of allegedly embezzling $50 million from overvalued public works projects, said Christian Salas, Perus anti-corruption public prosecutor. Gambini entered the governors race in adjacent Ucayali state after a money laundering probe made national headlines, sidelining the incumbent. As two-term mayor of Irazola, a poor farming district where the Andes meet the Amazon, Gambini enriched himself as well as relatives and associates closely tied to drug trafficking, according to an eight-page order for a money laundering probe issued Aug. 29 and obtained by AP Supporting documents say Gambini personally acquired more than 38 square miles of land, some of which may have coca fields, has two homes worth $180,000 and is now president of the soccer club based in the regional capital of Pucallpa, whose monthly payroll exceeds $50,000. As mayor, he earns less than $2,000 a month. Since Gambini first entered office in 2007, the order said, he apparently hid his wealth through his brother and several associates, transforming simple farmers into economic potentates with multiple properties, late-model SUVs and heavy trucks. At a political rally last week that featured free beer on ice, Gambini denied the accusations, calling them lies fabricated by political foes. He said that his land holdings amount to half-a-square mile and that he owned a saw mill before being elected mayor. He gave up growing coca in 2003 at the encouragement of USAID, he said. Critics say Perus lawmakers have intentionally made its political system fertile ground for dirty money through inaction or intentional legal loopholes. Gambini, for example, does not mention his earnings or holdings in the official biography submitted to the National Electoral Commission and posted online. It is not required. Of the roughly 126,000 candidates, only 11 percent filed such disclosures, according to the independent watchdog group Transparencia, which partnered with news website Utero.pe to compare official bios with various public databases. They discovered 1,395 convicted criminals, including 13 drug traffickers. In Peru, convicted criminals are not barred from elected office as long as theyve been rehabilitated by court order. Ricardo Soberon, a former drug czar, said institutions tasked with fighting illicit activity are, at best, indifferent. Politics has lost all ethical sense. Now, its just about being a pickpocket, he said. Take campaign finance law. The penalty for failing to report a campaign donation is the loss of public financing. But there is no public financing. It was authorized in a 2003 law but the Finance Ministry has yet to free up any money. Perus banking secrecy law is no better. Reports of suspicious financial operations are up 30 percent to 40 percent this year, said Sergio Espinosa, director of the countrys Financial Investigations Unit. Yet his office cant widen probes to include other banks and tax records without a prosecutors approval. And he is barred by law from sharing suspicious activity reports with police. Peru has had fewer than 20 money laundering convictions, by Espinosas estimate, and none involving a politician. All of which helps make political campaigning a noholds-barred affair in places like Huanuco, which straddles the Andes ridge. While one cant legally buy a house in Mexico or Colombia with a bag of cash, it is common in Peru. Luis Picon and his brothers bought 21 properties from 2003 to 2012, all with cash, according to the financial investigations report. A decade after USAID approached Gambini and other local farmers about planting cacao and African palm instead coca leaf, Irazola is a top cacao producer and Gambini has gotten much of the credit. In 2008, the U.S. government agency paid his way to Miami for a conference of mayors from across the Americas. In March 2011, Gambini attended a meeting with then-U.S. Ambassador Rose Likins and the Ucayali governor as USAID renewed its commitment to the region. An embassy press statement said USAID had invested more than $50 million in the region over the past 15 years. A year later, a USAID report highlighted Gambini as a dynamic new partner who helped transform Irazola into a model for alternative development. But back home, local activists filed legal complaints against Gambini for alleged embezzlement and fraud. They say he awarded contracts to cronies for projects that were never finished or poorly executed. In one case, Gambini plowed more than $4 million of public money into providing electricity, water and sewers to the 400-family community of Neshuya. He then helped arrange the sale of the land to a close associate, residents claim, who then began selling people the parcels beneath their homes at inflated prices. Gambini denies the accusations. But the communitys former leader, Eugenio Longa, said those abuses led residents to publicly denounce him. The U.S. Embassy in Lima said in a written response to AP questions that it had requested a background check on Gambini before the 2008 trip to Miami. It did not say who performed the check, what it found, or how much USAID assistance went to Irazolas district government.

Associated PressDONETSK, Ukraine Despite a cease-fire declared a month ago between the Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian rebels, the biggest city in eastern Ukraine remains embroiled in fighting that includes daily artillery and rocket barrage hitting residential areas. The fighting focusing on the airport of the rebelheld city of Donetsk shows the difficulties of enforcing a truce that has held in most other areas of eastern Ukraine since it was declared on Sept. 5. Day after day, artillery shells and rockets fly overhead. Many explode in densely populated residential areas as the rebels have fought to dislodge Ukrainian government forces from the Donetsk airport just north of the city. Nine civilians were killed Wednesday, and a Red Cross staffer was killed Thursday. They were among scores killed and wounded since the fighting was supposed to have stopped. All windows in our house were shaking, I was sitting on my bed and I had to hold tight not to fall, said Valentina Ryabchevskaya, a Donetsk resident, describing a recent shelling near her home. Windows were shaking, doors in cabinets opened. Its terrible how they treat people. The barrage has intensified this week, with shells hitting apartment buildings, a school, a bus stop, and the Red Cross office. The United Nations and the European Union voiced concern about the fighting that threatens to derail a fragile truce that has held in most other areas in eastern Ukraine since it was declared on Sept. 5. Negotiators representing Russia, Ukraine, proRussian rebels and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe tried to consolidate the cease-fire with a follow-up agreement to create a buffer zone that requested each party to pull its artillery 9 miles back from the frontline. The deal has helped reduce hostilities, but fighting has continued at a few strategic locations. Donetsk, home to a million people before the conflict, has remained the main flashpoint. The rebels have shown no inclination to pull their forces back from their biggest stronghold, and the Ukrainian forces have been equally reluctant to relinquish what they see as a key strategic asset. For Ukraine, the airport has become a symbol of its military valor, and losing it would be certain to fuel public anger against President Petro Poroshenko, who has faced criticism for caving in to Russia by accepting a truce. A retreat from the airport would undoubtedly put the Ukrainian leader in more trouble ahead of Oct. 26 parliamentary elections, which he hopes will help cement his grip on power. More than 3,500 people have been killed in fighting between the pro-Russia rebels and government troops since the mutiny in eastern Ukraine erupted in April following Moscows annexation of Crimea. The Ukrainian forces appeared close to defeating the rebels in late August, but a rebel counter-offensive swiftly turned the tide against the government. Ukraine and the West have accused Russia of backing the rebels with troops and weapons, claims the Kremlin has denied. Poroshenko has defended the truce and a recent law granting broad autonomy to the rebellious east, saying that an exclusive reliance on military force would only provoke Russia to send even more troops in to prevent the rebels defeat. The airport is a thorn at the rebels side, a key bridgehead from which the Ukrainian forces could target rebel positions in Donetsk. Andrei Purgin, a rebel leader, said that the government forces must be pushed at least 9 miles back from the airport to make the city safe. Fighting for the airport and a few other areas has continued because the frontline is uneven and chaotic and each side wants to carve it to its advantage before moving any forces back. The airport was rebuilt to modern standards a couple of years before the conflict. The new glassand-steel main terminal is now a hulking ruin, but the airports 2.5-mile runway could receive large cargo planes with supplies potentially a major asset for the region that so far has relied exclusively on truck convoys bringing aid from Russia. The rebels have repeatedly tried to capture the facility. They suffered a particularly painful defeat in May, losing dozens of men when Ukrainian forces pummeled them with fighter jets, helicopter gunships and artillery. The insurgents have since become more cautious, periodically probing the airports defenses and firing artillery at Ukrainian positions. Rebel chiefs say it has been challenging to storm the airport because Ukrainian forces have relied on a sprawling maze of tunnels and bunkers dating from Soviet times. During the week, the rebels made some gains around the airport, seizing a few buildings on the perimeter that allowed them to target the government forces with higher precision. During Fridays fighting, an AP reporter saw rebel tanks firing salvo after salvo at the main terminal as snipers shots rang across the area. Throughout the fighting, government forces and rebels have regularly used heavy artillery and rockets, catching Donetsk residents in crossfire. The Soviet-era Grad (Hail) systems used by both sides are capable of hurling unguided rockets to the distance of up to 12 miles with devastating effect but little precision, and have inflicted particularly heavy damage to residential areas. Amid the constant thud of artillery, classes began in Donetsk schools Wednesday a month later than usual. One school was hit by shells on the opening day, killing a teacher and two parents. At least 70 children were in school the school and took shelter in the basement, according to the citys administration. Amnesty International this week strongly warned the Ukrainian government and the rebels that using indiscriminate weapons against populated areas may amount to a war crime. Ukrainian government forces must immediately stop firing on residential areas in Donetsk, John Dalhuisen, Amnesty Internationals Europe and Central Asia Director, said in a statement. By carrying out military operations in the neighborhood, rebel forces share responsibility for these latest attacks with the Ukrainian forces. There have been claims that the warring parties could resolve the airport deadlock by trading territory. Donetsk region Gov. Serhiy Taruta said this week that Ukrainian and rebel representatives were considering a compromise, under which the airport could be exchanged for some areas controlled by the rebels. Both the Ukrainian government and the rebels have quickly dismissed Tarutas claim.WORLDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014 A17 000JAVQ The Sgt. Dennis James The Sgt.

Associated PressWASHINGTON For months, Islamic State militants rampaged across Syria and Iraq, seizing cities, taking hostages and terrorizing all who dared to confront them. The tide began to turn in mid-August, when U.S. airstrikes pushed them from key Iraqi battlegrounds. Then, on Aug. 19, the group released a video that showed the beheading of American freelance journalist James Foley. The pattern continued. Within days of a military defeat, the group would release images of more beheadings at least nine over six weeks of Western journalists, aid workers and Muslim soldiers. The tactic signals that even as the Islamic State group suffers battlefield losses, it is holding on to its edge in the propaganda war. U.S. officials say thats the only way the militants can continue to maintain support and attract new recruits. On Friday, the Islamic State group released a new video showing the beheading of British aid worker Alan Henning after nearly two straight weeks of daily airstrikes against their fighters. Certainly since the bombing campaign, the reverses, theyre no longer boasting of taking places because theyre not taking places. Theyre losing places, Alberto Fernandez, who heads the State Departments office for counterterrorism propaganda, said in a recent interview. So what do they do? They boast about cutting peoples heads off. Theyre trying to substitute that for military victory. That may be some propaganda by the U.S itself. But the trend still is frightening, considering the Islamic State group is holding what U.S. intelligence officials believe are as many as 20 hostages, including at least two Americans. This past week, the militants suffered a series of setbacks, with U.S. and allied airstrikes Friday hitting Syrian oil refineries and a training camp. Earlier strikes pushed militants back from some of their positions in Iraq. But the Islamic State group this past week also besieged the Iraqi town of Hit and ambushed an Iraqi army unit north of Ramadi, kept its tight grip on Fallujah, and closed in on the Syrian town of Kobani. In the video of Hennings beheading, a masked militant warns the U.S. that the gruesome attacks on individuals will continue as long as the airstrikes do. He also threatened that an American hostage, identified as Peter Kassig, would be next. It is only right that we continue to strike the neck of your people, masked militant said. Violence has been a focal point of Islamic State group propaganda, to show the militants might and recruit the thousands of foreign fighters who have rushed to join them. When they captured Mosul, Iraq, in June, they beheaded security forces, raped women and terrorized residents into following an extreme form of Islamic law known as Sharia. But the group had held Western hostages for months and, in some cases, even years. Not until the airstrikes began, weakening the groups momentum, did the extremists start beheading the white Westerners. In the Foley video, an unidentified fighter warned that American journalist Steven Sotloff would be next if the U.S. campaign did not stop. The airstrikes continued, and Sotloff was beheaded in a video released Sept. 2. From Sept. 7 to 9, U.S. airstrikes pounded militant positions around Haditha, Iraq. On Sept. 11, British Prime Minister David Cameron announced that his government was considering using air power against the Islamic State group in Syria. On Sept. 13, the Islamic State group released a video of the beheading of British humanitarian aid worker David Haines. The unidentified killer said Haines was paying the price for Britains decision to supply weapons to Kurdish peshmerga fighters, and he mentioned the Haditha strikes. The group has released videos or pictures of beheadings of Kurdish fighters, including several recently captured in clashes near the SyriaTurkey border. All the images came out after the Islamic State group was attacked or suffered setbacks in Kurdish areas in northern Iraq and Syria. The group wants to create the impression of victory and demoralize its Kurdish enemies, the Clarion Project, a Washington-based organization that tries to counter Islamic extremism, said in an Aug. 28 alert about the beheading of a Kurdish soldier. The militants also claim to have beheaded two Lebanese soldiers kidnapped during a raid of the Lebanese border town of Arsal in August. One of victim was a Sunni Muslim; thats important because it belies Islamic State propaganda that it is creating a religious empire, or caliphate, for faithful Sunnis. The group is trying to turn some of its tactical defeats into strategic victories. By highlighting the airstrikes reported civilian casualties, the militants are trying to rally Syrian Sunnis who have suffered during the civil war. Much of the Islamic State propaganda notes that the United States and the West have not helped Sunnis in Syria or in Iraq, where they were sidelined from power and in some cases targeted by the Shiite government of former Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. Juan Zarate, a deputy national security adviser on counterterrorism to President George W. Bush, said it was a very difficult balance for the U.S. and its allies as they weigh the safety of their kidnapped citizens against continued attacks on the militants. What you try to do is find ways to accelerate potential releases, or acquisition of where (the hostages) are, and have that as part of your battle plan considerations, Zarate said. But once youve made the decision to engage the enemy, and they have your citizens, youre taking a risk. And lives are going to be lost.A18SUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION/WORLD Meet the local candidates and hear their positions.

Associated PressCHICAGO Its one of the most famous Abraham Lincoln photographs, largely because no one knew the picture of the dead president lying in an open coffin existed for nearly a century until a 14year-old boy found it. On Tuesday, Ronald Rietveld the boy who made the discovery and is now a retired historian will donate his original notes about the picture to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield. The photo marks one of the last chapters of a story that began in April 1865, just days after Lincoln was assassinated in Washington. On a stop in New York City, one of a number of places Lincolns remains were displayed while being taken by train to Springfield for burial, a photographer was allowed to take a picture of the president in an open coffin. Lincolns secretary of war, Edwin M. Stanton, apparently heard about the photograph and ordered it and all prints and negatives destroyed. All were, except for one sent to Stanton. Rietveld enters the story in the early 1950s when, as a teenager fascinated with Lincoln, he attended the dedication of a collection of Lincoln-related items at the University of Iowa. Harry Pratt, the state historian of Illinois and a Lincoln scholar, was so impressed with Rietveld that he invited him to Springfield to see the 16th presidents home and tomb. Pratt also let Rietveld look through papers of John Nicolay and John Hay, who were White House secretaries when Lincoln was president. Hays daughter donated the papers to the Illinois State Historical Library in 1943. Rietveld came upon an envelope sent to Nicolay in 1887 by Stantons son, who explained that hed found some of his fathers papers and thought Nicolay might want them. Then I opened up the folded sheet of plain stationery and there lay a faded brown photograph, Rietveld wrote in an article that appeared in Abraham Lincoln Online. At first he didnt believe what he was seeing. My first reaction was, This cant be because I knew Lincoln photography well enough to know there were no photographs of Lincoln in the coffin, there were no such pictures, period, Rietveld, now 77, said in a phone interview Saturday. Pratt told Rietveld to keep quiet about the photo until he could determine its authenticity. Rietveld boarded a bus with his secret and returned home to Iowa where he didnt say a word to anyone, including his mother. On the morning of Sept. 14, 1952, his mother shook him awake and told him that his grandfather had just called with news that a picture of Lincoln was all over the front page of the Des Moines newspaper, with Rietvelds name front and center. She wanted to know what I had done wrong, said Rietveld, chuckling at the memory. I told her I didnt do anything wrong, Id found the photograph during the summer in Springfield. The AP (Associated Press) had put my name all over the country. Associated PressSCRANTON, Pa. The suspect in a deadly ambush on two state troopers said in a text message that all is good less than five hours before he allegedly opened fire outside their barracks in northeastern Pennsylvanias Pocono Mountains, according to court documents. Eric Freins longtime friend received a text from the suspect around 6:15 p.m. on Sept. 12, The Times-Tribune of Scranton (http://bit.ly/1Edv1EG ) reported Saturday, citing a search warrant affidavit filed in the case. Frein is charged with ambushing the Blooming Grove barracks shortly before 11 p.m. that night. One trooper was killed and a second wounded. Authorities have been looking for Frein described by authorities as a survivalist with a grudge against law enforcement in the woods around his parents home in Canadensis. The manhunt entered its fourth week Saturday. Authorities said Friday they have found caches of supplies in the rugged, heavily wooded search area. Tuna fish, ramen noodles and other food was recovered along with clothing and 90 rounds of ammunition from a campsite where police previously said they found two pipe bombs, according to investigators. Court documents said Freins wrote in his text message that he had stayed at the friends apartment in East Stroudsburg the previous night. The friend was in Virginia at the time of the shooting, the affidavit said. Freins text also said he was heading back to Delaware, and that he would return the following week, the affidavit said. Police have said Frein lied to relatives and other people that he was working in Delaware so he could prepare for the ambush. Police obtained a search warrant for the apartment and recovered several boxes of ammunition and 10 dirty guncleaning patches, according to a document listing the items seized by police. The friend is not charged in connection with the ambush and police have said Frein acted alone.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014 A19 www.chronicleonline.com/nxtticketgiveaway 000JG1A www.chronicleonline.com/nxtticketgiveaway TICKET GIVEAWAY!

A pair of deadly nighttime crashes only hours apart in Southern California each killed five people, including a group of teenagers returning from an amusement park who were burned beyond recognition, officials said Saturday. The 16-year-old driver was the lone survivor of the crash of a BMW sedan at 2:15 a.m. Saturday carrying six teens returning from Knotts Berry Farm amusement park in Buena Vista. About five hours earlier on Friday night, three vehicles collided on an isolated two-lane road on the edge of Chino, a city east of Los Angeles in San Bernardino County. Authorities were working to identify the dead and determine the cause Saturday afternoon, police spokeswoman Monica Gutierrez said.Blown tires stop takeoff at LAXLOS ANGELES A pair of tires blew out on an Aeromexico jetliner carrying 129 passengers and six crew members as it was getting ready to take off from the Los Angeles airport early Saturday, forcing the pilot to stop the plane but causing no injuries. No one was injured and all were safely taken off Aeromexico flight 18 and boarded onto buses to the terminal, where they took other flights bound for Mexico City. National Transportation Safety Board officials do not plan any further investigation, spokesman Peter Knudson said. A preliminary report from the Federal Aviation Administration said the left landing gear had collapsed. The NTSBs Knudson said the blown tires were discovered later. The incident happened at about 6:30 a.m. Saturday and the runway was briefly shutdown until the aircraft was removed.Flag from 9/11 lost in memorial fireSHANKSVILLE, Pa.

Mujahid later sent a tweet Saturday describing the location leak as an enemy plot. He also offered his Afghan telephone number to confirm his identity and wrote: With full confidence, I can say that I am in my own country. Twitter says such geolocation data is based on latitude and longitude data or other information provided by users at the time of their message.

Associated PressSYDNEY After a four-month hiatus, the hunt for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is about to resume in a desolate stretch of the Indian Ocean, with searchers lowering new equipment deep beneath the waves in a bid to finally solve one of the worlds most perplexing aviation mysteries. The GO Phoenix, the first of three ships that will spend up to a year hunting for the wreckage far off Australias west coast, is expected to arrive in the search zone Sunday, though weather could delay its progress. Crews will use sonar, video cameras and jet fuel sensors to scour the water for any trace of the Boeing 777, which disappeared March 8 during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. The search has been on hold for months so crews could map the seabed in the search zone, about 1,100 miles west of Australia. The 23,000-square mile search area lies along what is known as the seventh arc a stretch of ocean where investigators believe the aircraft ran out of fuel and crashed, based largely on an analysis of transmissions between the plane and a satellite. Given that the hunt has already been peppered with false alarms from underwater signals wrongly thought to be from the planes black boxes to possible debris fields that turned out to be trash officials are keen to temper expectations. Were cautiously optimistic; cautious because of all the technical and other challenges weve got, but optimistic because were confident in the analysis, said Martin Dolan, chief commissioner of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, the agency leading the search. But its just a very big area that were looking at. That area was largely unknown to scientists before the mapping process began in May. Two ships have been surveying the seabed using on-board multibeam sonar devices, similar to a fish-finder. The equipment sends out a series of signals that determine the shape and hardness of the terrain below, allowing officials to create three-dimensional maps of the seabed. Those maps are considered crucial to the search effort because the seafloor is riddled with deep crevasses, mountains and volcanoes, which could prove disastrous to the pricey, delicate search equipment that will be towed just 330 feet above the seabed. Two of the search ships will be using underwater search vessels worth around $1.5 million each. The terrain isnt the only challenge. The area is prone to brutal weather, and is so remote that it takes vessels up to six days to get there from Australia. Water depths are also tricky: They range from 2,000 feet to 4 miles. Thats about the deepest the sonar equipment can go. In all sorts of ways were operating towards the limits of the technology that is available, Dolan said.

After a four-month hiatus, the hunt for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is about to resume in a desolate stretch of the Indian Ocean. With search area mapped, MH370 hunt resuming Associated PressBEIRUTSyrian President Bashar Assad made a rare public appearance on Saturday by attending prayers for a key Muslim holiday at a mosque in the capital, Damascus, hours after the U.S.-led coalition carried out new airstrikes against Islamic State group militants in Syria. The airstrikes targeted the militants positions on Friday night in the eastern town of Shaddadeh, a stronghold of the Islamic State group in the northeastern Syrian province of Hassakeh, according to activists. The airstrikes caused casualties, the activists said, with one group saying as many as 30 Islamic State fighters were killed. It was the first time Shaddadeh was struck since the U.S.-led campaign began nearly two weeks ago. There was no immediate confirmation from Washington. The United States and five Arab allies launched an aerial campaign against Islamic State group in Syria on Sept. 23 with the aim of rolling back and ultimately crushing the extremist group, which has created a protostate spanning the Syria-Iraq border. The militants have also massacred captured Syrian and Iraqi troops, terrorized minorities in both countries and beheaded two American journalists and two British aid workers. About 30 explosions were heard in and near Shaddadeh on Friday night, according to an activist in Hassakeh province, who added that the targets included several buildings occupied by Islamic State fighters. There were deaths for sure, said the activist who goes by the name of Salar al-Kurdi. He spoke over Skype. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which relies on a network of activists around Syria, said as many as 30 fighters from the Islamic State group were killed in the airstrikes on Shaddadeh. It said all the dead were foreign fighters. Meanwhile, intense fighting continued on the outskirts of Kobani on the Syrian-Turkish border, where Islamic State fighters have been trying to capture the town to open a direct link between their positions in the Syrian province of Aleppo and their stronghold of Raqqa, to the east. Kobani and its surrounding areas have been under attack since mid-September, with militants capturing dozens of nearby Kurdish villages. The assault, which has forced some 160,000 Syrians to flee, has left the Kurdish militiamen scrambling to repel the militants advance into the outskirts of the town, also known in Arabic as Ayn Arab. The Observatory said fighting was focused Saturday on the southwestern edge of the town, adding that members of the Islamic State group were shelling Kobani. From across the border in Turkey, sounds of heavy machine gun fire could be heard coming from Kobani. It was not immediately clear if the Islamic State group had entered the town. Associated PressHONG KONG Prodemocracy protesters were defiant in the face of attacks by opponents and warnings by the Hong Kong government to clear the streets, staging a massive rally Saturday evening in the downtown business district theyve occupied for a week. Democracy now! Democracy in Hong Kong! thousands chanted as speakers from the movement seeking wider political reforms for this former British colony urged them to persist in their campaign. The rally lasted hours, with participants at times clapping and cheering as a stream of speakers and singers addressed them and performed popular songs. We are not seeking revolution. We just want democracy! said Joshua Wong, a 17-year-old student leader. We hope there will be no violence, he said. It would be unfortunate if this movement ended with bloodshed and violence. After the rally ended, people grew nervous due to rumors that police would act to clear out the protesters in the middle of the night. But big crowds still filled the protest area after midnight. Standoffs between the protesters and their antagonists grew ugly during the day, as the two sides traded insults and at times taunted police. The citys leader said streets occupied by the protest must be opened back up by Monday. Although the mostly student-led protesters have stuck to their pledges of nonviolence, some shouted abuse at people who gathered to challenge their occupation of a major street in the gritty, blue-collar Mong Kok district, which is home to many migrants from the Chinese mainland. Minor skirmishes broke out constantly, broken up by police or bystanders. Adding to the disorder, some residents dumped water from their apartments onto the people below.

EXCURSIONS Page A21SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE JOURNALOFAJOURNEYPeter Graulichs ongoing travel series will return Oct. 12. AMANDAMIMS CorrespondentIts the quintessential Florida outdoor experience a plunge into a spring that appears from under a cave and gushes into a perfectly clear, perfectly cold run lined with mammoth, pockmarked rocks.Dappled sunlight peeks through the treeline of towering palms, oaks with limbs stretching out on all sides and swaying Spanish moss. The current races over rocks and open spaces at the top of the run, taking bathers along with it, but the pace soon slows to an amble. A short distance downstream, the water flows into a big, blue spring bowl. Its a scene that looks like it could have been dreamed up by Disneys best designers, except this isnt Disney World. Its the real thing the lazy river ride that water parks aspire to, but will always fall short of. If any fault can be found with Rock Springs and the run that shares its name, its that they are hardly a secret. The spring at Orange Countys Kelly Park in Apopka is a mere 20 miles north of Orlando, and the park often fills to capacity early in the day during summer months. The good news is the park isnt quite as busy during non-summer, non-weekend days. If you visit Kelly Park, you might find that one day just isnt enough. In that case, pack some camping gear or bring the RV and stay at the campground not far from the springs. Near Kelly Park, Rock Springs Run which is 9 miles long and flows into the Wekiva River passes through Rock Springs Run State Reserve. Although swimming is not allowed there, 17 miles of trails offer biking, hiking and horseback riding opportunities through pristine pine woods and along the water. There are no facilities to launch a canoe or kayak within the reserve, but visitors can launch from the nearby Wekiwa Springs State Park and paddle into the reserve. DAY TRIP AMANDA MIMS/For the ChronicleThe current takes swimmers from the headsprings downstream to the main swimming area, and visitors can rent tubes to float down the length of the spring run. See a little bit of paradise, and dont forget to bring the bikes, kayaks and hiking shoes IF YOU GOWHAT: Kelly Park/Rock Springs WHERE: 400 E.

A22SUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: My 84year-old mother had a stroke several months ago. Her insurance covers hospitalization, doctor visits, prescriptions and therapists, but I have to cover the co-pays. Mom now resides in a group home, and I am also paying the difference between the cost of the home and what Moms pension covers. Mom can barely speak, so I handle everything for her. This has made me think. I am 54 and single. I have no children, and although I have two siblings, we are not close. What would happen to me if I were in the same position as Mom? I am not a member of a church. My friends are people I know from work, and we rarely socialize outside of the office. I have long-term care insurance, but if I become incapacitated, who would write the checks? Who would find a group home where I can reside? Who would handle co-pays for doctor visits and medications? I know I am not the only person for whom this could become a reality. Please help us out. Being Prepared Dear Prepared: These are excellent questions, and we are certain many of our readers would like similar assistance. Some of this preparation you can do in advance. For those who dont plan ahead, the court will appoint someone, but if you prefer to select your own handlers, there are professionals who can help. You might consider joining a church or synagogue in order to develop a supportive community. You also can work on warming up the relationship with your siblings or getting closer to your nieces and nephews. Otherwise, please find an attorney or accountant who would be willing to take on some of these duties, particularly the financial ones. We also recommend geriatric care managers (caremanager.org), who are trained to handle such details. You can inquire about appointing any of these professionals as your health care proxy should you become incapacitated. And check to see whether your state offers a Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment Paradigm form (polst.org). Even if you have a DNR, advanced directive or living will, a POLST form offers more specific instructions regarding life-sustaining treatment.

Special to the ChronicleEveryone is invited to join the Citrus Garden Club on its holiday season trip to St. Augustine on Dec. 7. The tour is a major fundraiser for Citrus Garden Club. Participants will visit six private homes in the Historic Downtown, dating from the 1800s. This will be the 46th Christmas Tour of Homes called Christmas in the Ancient City. The selfguided walking tour begins at noon. Tickets will include a complimentary all-day pass for the Old Town Trolley (marked Christmas Tour of Homes) and more. The bus departs from the Wal-Mart parking lot (State Road 44 in Inverness) behind Wendys at 7:30 a.m., with departure at 7:45 a.m. Participants will return to the dropoff location at 4:30 p.m. and depart at 4:45 p.m. The bus will arrive back by 8 p.m. at the Wal-Mart parking lot. The bus can accommodate wheelchairs or walkers, but you must be able to board the bus without assistance. Lunch will be on your own. Reservations must be made by Wednesday, Oct. 8, and tickets sell out quickly each years. For ticket price and other information, call 352-249-6970. Send reservations checks made payable to Citrus Garden Club to Pamela Noel, 3339 Axelford, Hernando, FL 34442. The reserve allows limited primitive camping and primitive equestrian camping, which is a much more rugged experience than camping at Kelly Park. There are two primitive campsites on Rock Springs Run that are accessible only by canoe or kayak.

Fort Cooper will have its Living History Days open to secondand fourth-grade students on Nov. 6 and 7. Living History Days is a program designed to educate students about the lives and customs of people who walked the land of the Florida territory before us in the 1830s and 1840s; the program also meets the Sunshine State Standards of Education for these grades. Students participating in the program will have the opportunity to visit numerous stations at which Living Historians will demonstrate different trades and crafts while talking about what it would have been like for the people of the 1830s and 1840s. Students will also interact with the Living History demonstrators while taking part in hands-on activities. The concluding goal of this program is for the younger generation of Florida to have a better understanding and appreciation of what life was like for Floridians of the past. Preregistration is required for this event, and there is a fee of $4 per student. Preparations are being made for upcoming fall and winter events by the Friends of Fort Cooper, a not-for-profit volunteer group. Anyone interested in volunteering must contact the park for further information. The crisp air and scent of fall is slowly creeping up on Citrus County, and it is becoming more of a pleasure to spend time outdoors in the cool breeze, rather than being stuck inside with the air conditioning on full blast. Not many county residents are aware of the 710-acre Fort Cooper State Park that lies right off of U.S. 41 on South Floral City Road in Inverness. Fort Cooper provides a cool, shady getaway to all, complete with extensive nature trails of more than 5 miles and plenty of relaxing places to picnic. Think about choosing Fort Cooper when you need a little R&R time this fall season. There are great ways to get involved with the park whether it is learning its history, volunteering or just spending a relaxing day there.High school student Jade Bittenbender contributes to publicity for Fort Cooper State Park.

Page A24SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE VETERANS C.J. RISAK CorrespondentIt was mid-November in 1948, and Robert Bruce then a radarman third class aboard the destroyer USS MacKenzie and most of his shipmates were asleep when a commotion on deck awakened them. They were being boarded.It was 3 a.m. and their ship was moored in Valletta harbor on the island of Malta, located near Sicily in the Mediterranean Sea. It was a place known throughout its history to be a haven for pirates. But as Bruce quickly discovered, they werent under attack by pirates. They were being taken over by joyfilled Englishmen, celebrating the birth of Prince Charles of Wales. We had three American destroyers, so there must have been just a hoard of them, in the hundreds, Bruce recalled. The just ran around the ships and went everywhere, down into the sleeping compartments, banging and whooping and hollering. It was one of many memorable moments Bruce spent in the Navy. We went with them and had grogs of rum, he would write later about that night in Malta. I had never had rum before, but it flowed freely. Raised by his great grandparents in Bangor, Maine, Bruce now 87 and living in Beverly Hills wanted to get into the Navy during the height of World War II. I had wanted to join, Bruce said. Its hard to imagine now, how people felt aboutthe war then. The country was absolutely united, everybody wanted to go, and as a young kid in high school I wanted to go. However, his great grandparents wouldnt allow it. They said, Youve got to finish high school, Bruce said. So I finished high school in June of and on July 5, I joined the Navy. Bruce originally wanted to be a pilot, but when it was discovered he was partially color blind, those hopes ended. That left him with two choices, quartermaster school or radar school. There was just a two-week wait to be assigned to a ship after radar school, so Bruce chose that endeavor. It proved to be a wise selection. In his four-plus years in the Navy, Bruce would visit every continent including a four-month cruise to Antarctica with legendary Admiral Richard Byrd. That would last from December 1946 to April 1947, when he was aboard the U.S.S. Mount Olympus, one of 15 ships involved. It would serve as Byrds flagship. It was interesting, Bruce said of that voyage, the largest of Byrds Antarctic exploration fleets. He would make five such trips; this was his fourth. After leaving Panama and the canal, we went 28 days without seeing land, Bruce said. If I remember right, the warmest it got was 28 (degrees) above zero, and the coldest it got was 28 below. Antarctica is dry, its the driest continent on earth. It didnt snow that much, but the snow blows and it hardly melts. It was light for a period of two months, the sun only going down to the horizon. But it never got dark. Asked about Byrd himself, Bruce said, I met him on a couple of occasions. He would come into CIC (Command and Information Center), which is where the radar was, and he would talk to anybody. Thats the way it is, the higher your rank the more accessible you are. There were other adventures awaiting Bruce, including a trip to Palestine when he was aboard the MacKenzie. That country was becoming a hotspot after World War II, with the Jews claiming it as their homeland. After Malta, we took 120 Marines to Palestine, they were taken over to protect American interests in Jerusalem, he explained. In late 1948 and early 1949, the country was devastated, with half of Haifa, located in northern Israel, destroyed, its Arab population relocating. The Jewish population did not want the five-ship convoy, which sailed under the United Nations banner, there at all, according to Bruce. They would send representatives to them daily, asking them to leave or to at least relocate their ships. Their requests were denied, even though Egyptian planes used the ships as landmarks during their bombing missions to Jerusalem. The MacKenzie spent three weeks in Palestine. Most of the remainder of his enlistment was aboard that ship, cruising around the Mediterranean Sea. He would be discharged in September 1949. Bruce attended Michigan State University, graduating in 1953. He and his wife moved to New York City, where he worked mainly for Standard and Poors. He retired in 1989 and they moved to Beverly Hills. He has vivid memories of his time in the Navy, and one that still resonates was that night in Malta. Asked if anyone ever got into trouble for their partying with the English sailors in Valletta, Bruce could only say, No, no, no, at least not that I knew. It was explainable. CLOCKWISE, FROM TOP LEFT: Robert Bruce, U.S. Navy retired. Rear Admiral Richard Cruzen, left, who led Task Force 68 during Operation Highjump, shakes hands with Admiral Richard Byrd, the organizer of the operation. This photo taken during Admiral Richard Byrds fourth trip to the Antarctica between December 1946 and April 1947 was shot from the stern of the Coast Guard cutter Northwind. The ships following the Northwind are the USS Yancey, the USS Merrick and the flagship of the operation, the USS Mount Olympus.

NFL/B2 Scoreboard/B3 Lottery, TV/B3 College football/ B4, B5 Baseball playoffs/ B6 Golf/B6 FSU defense gets it together, beats Wake Forest./ B4 SPORTS Section B SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2014 CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Early deadlines Due to early deadlines, certain content lotter y numbers and some sports coverage will not appear in Fridays edition. 000JGV3Division still wide open in NFC South Associated PressNEW ORLEANS In a search for evidence that things could get better quickly coach Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints had to look no further than their next opponent. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who visit New Orleans today, looked like a lost cause during a humiliating, mistake-filled 56-14 pummeling at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons in a Thursday night game to open Week 3. They responded in Week 4 with a stirring 27-24 comeback victory at Pittsburgh. So as the Saints got back to work after their own prime-time embarrassment a 38-17 loss at Dallas last Sunday night they were comforted, somewhat, by Tampa Bays example of how fast fortunes can change in the NFL. At times in this league, scores can be overrated. No one wants to get blown out ... but you dont want to see a score and jump to conclusions, Saints center Jonathan Goodwin said. In this league, everybodys good, everybodys capable of winning. Its just about getting in that groove where youre doing way more things right than youre doing wrong. Payton pointed out that while Tampa Bay is 1-3, the Buccaneers have been competitive in 75 percent of their games. If you look at their three losses, one of them obviously was a big differential but the other two werent, Payton said. They played some pretty close games to start the year and just didnt come up on the winning end. Thatll sound familiar to Saints fans. New Orleans (1-3) had leads in the final 10 seconds of each of its first two road games, only to lose both by a field goal or fewer. The Saints broke into the win column with a 20-9 victory over undermanned Minnesota in Week 3 before falling flat in Dallas. Fortunately for New Orleans and Tampa Bay, no one is showing signs of separating themselves in the NFC South. Carolina and Atlanta both lost last week to fall to 2-2, meaning the Saints and Bucs are just one game out of first place with 12 games left, despite their disappointing starts. This week is a big week for both us and New Orleans, Bucs quarterback Mike Glennon said. Whoever wins will be 2-3 and could end up at the end of week being tied for first place in the division. Here are some things to know about the Bucs visit to New Orleans.WRECKED RYANRob Ryan was celebrated like a hero during his first season in New Orleans. His second hasnt gone so well. The Saints defense, which finished 2013 ranked fourth in the NFL, ranks 29th through the first four games this season. Theyre allowing 396 yards per game, 90 more yards, on average, than last season. New Orleans is struggling to get pressure on quarterbacks, with only five sacks so far, and turnovers have been hard to come by as well, with no interceptions and one fumble recovery.Stakes high for Saints, Bucs See BUCS/Page B3 TONY CASTRO CorrespondentSHADY HILLS Citrus County harriers returned home sans any team trophy hardware following Saturdays 18th annual Gator Invitational Cross Country meet at Crews Lake Park. For the second consecutive weekend on the boys side in Pasco County, the rugged Class 2A, District 5 Ocala-Vanguard Knights swept the team competition stacking four runners among the meets initial 10 finishers. The Knights, with 37 points, easily dispatched of 4A-6s Tampa-Sickles (84 points). Sickles James Sentmeyer collected medalist honors behind a 16:03.40 3.1-mile clocking. Citrus County harriers were paced by Lecantos fifth-place finish in the 32-team, 212-runner field. Mackenzie Woods was the initial Panther to solve the 3.1-mile course placing fifth overall in 17:05.00. LHS senior Sam Alford followed in 17th place in 17:34.90. There was a huge pack in the beginning of the race, said the 17-year-old Alford, who is also a standout tennis player. The course was nice, but there were a lot of people. I came in shooting for a 17:00 flat. Our boys ran well, summed up LHS mentor Roselle Lattin. We tried to concentrate on our district opponents. We did a real good job of passing some Belleview runners. Id say were improving week-toweek. On the race, Most of the kids love this course, Lattin said. Panther boys, Lady Pirates finish top 10 See CROSS COUNTRY/Page B3 Associated PressKNOXVILLE, Tenn. Florida relied on some unlikely stars to continue its decade-long mastery of Tennessee in an improbable manner. Austin Hardin made his first field goal of the season a 49-yarder with 6:20 remaining as Florida erased a nine-point, fourth-quarter deficit Saturday to beat Tennessee 10-9 for its 10th straight victory in this annual series. Florida staged the comeback behind freshman quarterback Treon Harris, who led both the Gators scoring drives after replacing an ineffective Jeff Driskel late in the third quarter. It wasnt always pretty, Florida coach Will Muschamp said. We did the things we had to, especially down nine on the road in the fourth quarter. You make a quarterback change, and our guys didnt blink. They responded to it. Muschamp praised Harris composure in leading the comeback but wouldnt indicate who would start at quarterback next week against No. 16 LSU. Harris entered the game after Driskel went 11 of 23 for 59 yards with three interceptions. We wont make any decision on whos going to start our next ballgame today, Muschamp said. It was a very emotional win. Were going to go home, were going to watch the film, were going to see why were not offensively doing some things we feel like are there. It wasnt all on Jeff. Matt Jones rushed for 114 yards and had a 32-yard run to set up Hardins winning kick. Tennessee drove into Florida territory in the final minute before Keanu Neal sealed the victory by intercepting a Justin Worley pass at the Florida 23 with 51 seconds left. Aaron Medley kicked three field goals for Tennessee, which lost for the third straight time.Florida rallies late to beat Tennessee 10-9Annual beatingAssociated PressLEFT: New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees prepares to pass Sept. 28 during warm ups before playing the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, Texas.

B2 r If the Cincinnati Bengals and Arizona Cardinals, the NFLs only remaining un beatena, are true championship contend ers, they can make a very loud statement this weekend. The Cardinals are at Den ver and the Bengals visit New England. The Bengals have been abysmal in na tionally televised night games, including 3-12 on Sunday night. Theyve been told about it as they head to Foxborough for the prime-time matchup with the strug gling Patriots. Some of the people keep saying we havent played well in night games, prime time, whatever it is, quarterback Andy Dalton says. But were setting out to win this game. Were not worried about the past and what weve done here, its about what were doing now. So were excited about getting the opportunity to play Sunday night against a good team and to really show what this teams made of. Arizona gets a similar opportunity and against, what is right now, a much stron ger opponent. The Broncos fell at Seat tle in their last game before a bye, and beat Indianapolis and Kansas City be fore that. Its a big road game against a team that went to the Super Bowl last year and is going to be a playoff team this year, coach Bruce Arians says. Its a good barometer for us on the road. ... We didnt play any slouches so far. There are no slouches in this league. This is a really good ballclub with an outstanding defense and kicking game, and a crowd. All the factors that go into playing at Denver are a huge advantage (for them). The Week 4 action began Thursday night with Green Bays 42-10 rout of Min nesota. The game never was close. Ju lius Peppers returned an interception 49 yards for a touchdown, and Aaron Rodgers threw for three scores. Green Bay is 3-2, Minnesota 2-3. Off this week are Miami (2-2) and Oak land (0-4), which just fired coach Dennis Allen. Cincinnati (3-0) at New England (2-2) The Bengals have been all about defense 33 points allowed and protecting the ball. Dalton has thrown one interception, they havent fumbled, and they have a plus-six turnover differential. Contrast that with whats going on with the Patriots, who come off a 41-14 defeat at Kan sas City, cant protect Tom Brady (10 sacks) and rank 30th in passing. I dont think we should feel sorry for our selves. said Brady, who needs 60 yards to reach 50,000 passing for his career, but ranks sixth from the bottom in passer rating. Weve always found a way to kind of grind our way through tough times. Losing on the road on a Monday night is always tough, but obviously were not doing good enough, so weve got to work harder. Weve got to understand what we need to do better individually so it helps each other collectively. Arizona (3-0) at Denver (2-1) Both teams are rested coming off byes, but the Cardinals have quarterback concerns with Carson Palmers shoulder issues. Then again, Drew Stanton has stepped in and won his two starts. The Cardinals defense must remain stingy 45 points allowed thus far, none in the fourth quarter and thats a prodigious chal lenge against Peyton Manning, who already has thrown for eight TDs. He needs one more for 500, a number only Brett Favre has reached. Houston (3-1) at Dallas (3-1) For the Lone Star state title, but more im portantly, the winner solidifies its standing in its division. The Texans lead the AFC South and the Cowboys are tied atop the NFC East, both surprising developments, although it is early. Perhaps the two most valuable players through one month will be on the field: Tex ans DE J.J. Watt and Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray, the leagues leading rusher. Kansas City (2-2) at San Francisco (2-2) Each team comes off an impressive win, and the spotlight surely will be on Chiefs QB Alex Smiths return to the Bay Area. The top overall draft pick in 2005 by the 49ers got his career on track under Jim Harbaugh in 2011, then lost the job to Colin Kaepernick after Smith sustained a concussion. He landed in Kansas City and guided the Chiefs to the playoffs last year. No bitterness at all, Smith says. What happened there the end of the (2012) year, losing my job, you get to that point and I say this a lot, worrying about anything that was outside your control and dwelling on any of that stuff is only going to have a negative impact. Chicago (2-2) at Carolina (2-2) Each team comes off a forgettable loss. Chicago malfunctioned after halftime at home against Green Bay, and its depth is being tested by a slew of injuries. But the Bears are 2-0 on the road. Something has gone terribly wrong with Carolinas defense, which looked strong for the first two games, but has plummeted to 23rd overall. The fearsome pass rush isnt so fearsome without Greg Hardy. Baltimore (3-1) at Indianapolis (2-2) The fact the Colts once called Baltimore home rarely gets mentioned these days. But the Ravens have never won at Indy (0-4), and this is the start of a lengthy road stretch of four out of five games. Colts coach Chuck Pagano spent four sea sons coaching defense on Baltimores staff under John Harbaugh. But its Indys offense, led by Andrew Luck, which has been the mainstay. The Colts lead the NFL in points with 136 and yards passing with 1,304. Seattle (2-1) at Washington (1-3) As if the talent level on these two teams isnt disparate enough, the Super Bowl cham pion Seahawks also own the leagues best Monday night winning percentage (20-8, .714) and have outscored opponents 208-65 in their past eight appearances, winning all of them with three shutouts. They are 10-1 in prime time under coach Pete Carroll. The Redskins have lost six straight in prime time and are 4-14 on Monday nights since 2000. Yet, the Seahawks have lost six consecu tive regular-season matchups with Washington. St. Louis (1-3) at Philadelphia (3-1) Can the Eagles be more confounding than they were in the loss to the Niners? After three weeks of falling into holes and then ral lying to win, they blew a big lead at San Fran cisco. Their vaunted offense couldnt get out of its own way until the fourth quarter. But their special teams were superb, and its a good sign when your strongest unit struggles and you almost win anyway. St. Louis might be the most injured team in the league; at least it comes off a bye and healed up a bit. New York Jets (1-3) at San Diego (3-1) Through one-quarter of the schedule, the Chargers Philip Rivers has been the NFLs best quarterback. He has a 114.5 rating built on nine TD passes, one interception and a 70.1 completion percentage rate. Now Rivers faces a secondary filled with holes. Unless New Yorks pass rush over whelms San Diegos blockers, the Jets will need a lot of points Sunday. One thing in New Yorks favor is its running game and the fact the Chargers rank 31st in rushing. Pittsburgh (2-2) at Jacksonville (0-4) After handing away last weeks game to the Buccaneers, an angry bunch of Steelers takes on another winless Florida opponent. If they dont cut back on the penalties, though, the Steelers could wind up losing to a weaker foe again. Blake Bortles had his moments in his first pro start at San Diego, and the Jaguars get receiver Ace Sanders back from a four-game suspension. Every little bit helps. Atlanta (2-2) at New York Giants (2-2) Even when relatively healthy, the Falcons were awful on the road. Now that their offen sive line has been jumbled by injuries they lost starting left tackle Sam Baker and backup Mike Johnson in the preseason, the team on Tuesday placed right tackle Lamar Holmes (foot) and center Joe Hawley (right knee) on IR. So thats three starters lost off the offen sive line. Another starter, left guard Justin Blalock, also left last Sundays game with a back injury and didnt return. New York has forced nine turnovers in the past two games, both wins. Larry Donnell has become a force with a career-high three touchdowns catches against Washington, the first Giants tight end to do that since Joe Wal ton in 1962. Buffalo (2-2) at Detroit (3-1) A QB change to veteran Kyle Orton was the big news in Buffalo. Orton is a rarity: a ca reer backup who has managed to get starts in all four of his previous NFL stops. Detroits defense has been much sharper than expected, ranking first overall and sec ond against the pass. Its offense has been functional with Calvin Johnson hobbled; Mat thew Stafford has found another favorite tar get in free agent signee Golden Tate. Cleveland (1-2) at Tennessee (1-3) Now that Brian Hoyer has given the Browns life and hope at quarterback, maybe he can help fix a horrendous road record: 3-22 over the past three seasons. Hoyer is 4-2 in six career starts and has pushed Johnny Football backstage. Hes also getting help from Terrance West, who leads NFL rookies with 204 yards rushing. After a nice opening win, the Titans have been outscored 100-34. Prove it NFC Quarterbacks Att Com Yds TD Int A. Rodgers, GBY 147 98 1155 12 1 R. Wilson, SEA 87 60 651 6 1 M.

LOTTERY r B3 FOOTBALL And the weather was pretty good. I like coming here. Coach (Doug) Kep pel always does a great job of running this meet. Weve got three weeks left before districts and weve still got a lot of work to do. On the girls side 2A-5 Ocala-Van guard made five wins in five week ends by crushing the assembled 23-team field. The Lady Knights crushed run ner-up 2A-10 Tampa-Academy of the Holy Names by 72 points, 29-101. For the second straight weekend in Pasco County, Lady Knight Audrey Carpenter paced the 185-runner field to the 3.1-mile finish line in 19:03.60. Two Citrus County thinclads fin ished among the top 10. Lecantos Claire Farnsworth, who placed fourth overall in 19:27.50, en abled the Lady Panthers to finish 12th overall. I had a good day, but a few others had a little better day, assessed the 15-year-old Farnsworth. The course was fine. Its one of the better ones around. I felt pretty good, but not as well as I did at Crystal River a few weeks ago. This isnt a real speed course, added Farnsworth. Im looking to break 19 minutes when I race at McKethan Lake. We did OK today, described vet eran LHS mentor Dan Epstein. The kids came here and did their best. Crystal River just killed us, but Claire had one of her best races. Leading the way for the Lady Pi rates eighth-place finish was CRHS frosh Jillian Felton. Felton finished 10th overall in 20:36.50. I like the cooler weather we had a couple weeks ago at Crystal River, pointed out the 14-year-old Felton. It was a little hotter today. I did like the course, especially the trails and hard surfaces. It was kinda fun going back and forth. I wish I could have run a little faster, she added. I worked really hard prior to the race, but this isnt what I wanted.

CROSS COUNTRY Continued from Page B1 TIMELY RETURN With Bucs rookie WR Mike Evans sta tus up in the air because of a groin injury, Louis Murphy could play a key role against the Saints. Murphy, who also played for Oakland, Carolina and the New York Giants during a six-year career, was released after the final preseason game but re-signed on Sept. 28. Five days later, he had six catches for 99 yards in his Tampa Bay debut at Pittsburgh, including a 41-yarder that to set up Glennons game-winning TD pass to Vincent Jackson. GOOD COOKS One area in which the Saints continue to be exceptional is the passing game, which has been aided by the addition of first-round pick Brandon Cooks. His 23 catches lead all rookies. He has 199 yards and one TD receiving. Hes been really productive, quarterback Drew Brees said. We can line him up all over the field. Cooks, along with star tight end Jimmy Graham, are the main reasons Brees ranks third in the NFL with 1,203 yards passing. REJUVENATED D LINE Improving the pass rush was one of Tampa Bays top priorities during the off season, and Bucs coach Lovie Smith is beginning to get some results for the ef fort. In addition to Pro Bowl tackle Gerald McCoy returning to the lineup after miss ing one game because of a broken left hand, the teams big catch in free agency end Michael Johnson also played a key role last week after sitting two weeks with an injured ankle. The tandem set the tone for the defense against the Steelers, sacking Ben Roethlisberger on the first two plays, with Johnson forcing a fumble that led to an early touchdown. Another lineman slowed by injury, DaQuan Bow ers also had one of the teams five sacks of Roethlisberger. HOME COOKING While the Saints have started the sea son 0-3 on the road, theyll be looking for their 19th straight win in the Superdome, including playoffs, with coach Sean Pay ton on the sideline (Payton was sus pended in 2012). The last team to beat Payton in the Superdome? Tampa Bay, on the final day of the 2010 regular season. BUCS Continued from Page B1 Im not going to make any ex cuses, Tennessee coach Butch Jones said. We didnt get it done. Case closed. Tennessee led 9-0 when Jalen Tabor started Floridas comeback by sacking Worley, knocking the ball loose and recovering the fumble at Tennessees 30. That turnover led to Jones 2-yard touchdown run with 13:40 left. Worley was 26 of 39 for 205 yards for Tennessee, but he also threw two interceptions and lost a fumble. Bryan Cox Jr. had three of the Gators six sacks as a Florida defense that had yielded 645 yards in its last game a 42-21 loss to No. 3 Alabama two weeks ago kept Tennessees of fense out of the end zone all day. We had two weeks to prepare, so were not the Bears, lets dont jump to any conclusions here, Mus champ said. We have a long way to go, but like I said before the season, athletically I think were going to be fine (on defense). Floridas comeback stunned a young Tennessee team that had rea son to believe it finally would end its history of frustration in this series. The Vols were favored over the Ga tors for only the second time since this drought began, and the sense of Tennessee optimism was evident in the pregame fanfare. About 400 for mer players joined Tennessees cur rent roster in running through the T before the game. The scoreboard flashed a videotaped pregame pep talk from rapper Lil Jon, who would exhort the crowd again in third-down situations as a remixed version of his song Turn Down For What played over the loudspeaker. Entire sections of the early-arriving Neyland Sta dium sellout crowd wore either white or orange, giving the stands the same checkerboard effect as the end zones. Neyland was definitely rocking, Tennessee linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin said. The checker board, it looked great. It was a great environment, but we didnt get the job done. That crowd stayed in a festive mood for most of the first three quar ters as Floridas offense couldnt get out of its own way. Medleys first two field goals came after interceptions by Cameron Sutton and Todd Kelly Jr. The Vols led 9-0 before Tabors take away and Harris entrance brought Florida back to life. Florida still trailed 9-7 and faced fourth-and-3 from the Tennessee 32 when Muschamp turned to Hardin, who had attempted only one field goal all year. Hardin, the Gators des ignated kicker for longer field-goal attempts, had missed from 52 yards out against Kentucky on his only pre vious try. His 49-yarder in this instance split the uprights to put Florida ahead for good, capping a comeback that taught the Gators a lesson they can carry for the rest of the season. No matter how backed up we are, Cox said, Weve just got to keep fighting. GATORS Continued from Page B1

B4 r TALLAHASSEE The Florida State defense had not looked capable of keep ing the top-ranked Seminoles in conten tion for a realistic shot at a national title through the first four games. Turnovers have been absent and FBS opponents had been racking up the points. Until Saturday, when Wake Forest traveled to Tallahassee. The FSU defense ruled the day as the Seminoles eased to a 43-3 victory over the Demon Deacons. Totally dominated the game, Flor ida State coach Jimbo Fisher said. De fense got some turnovers, which weve been waiting on. Everybodys been asking that ques tion, so you can quit asking that question. A lackluster effort from quarterback Jameis Winston and the offense allowed kicker Roberto Aguayo and the defense to star. Winston threw for 297 yards with a touchdown and an interception while Aguayo kicked a career-high five field goals in a single game. The reigning Lou Groza Award winner also set a school record with 21 consecutive field goals. I didnt know (about the record) until after the game, Aguayo said. I did think about it three weeks ago ... but I didnt think about it coming into this game. The FSU defense simply overmatched the Demon Deacons (2-4, 0-2 ACC) and held them to 126 offensive yards, includ ing 40 rushing. Linebacker Reggie Northrup had the highlight of the day when he forced and recovered a fumble and ran it 31 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter. That put FSU up 30-3. It was the first time the Seminoles held a team to three points or less since a 59-3 win against Syracuse on Nov. 16, 2013. Ive got to get us going, Ive got to get us started fast, Winston said. At the end of the day, thats what weve got that defense for. Sometimes theyve got to have our backs. Sometimes weve got to have their back. At the end of the day when Florida State starts playing Florida State foot ball and defense and offense is all on the same cylinder, were going to be fun to watch. Wake Forest quarterback John Wol ford was held to 58 yards passing and an interception. The game took its toll on Florida State (5-0, 3-0) as leading receiver Rashad Greene (concussion) and starting center Austin Barron (arm) both left and did not return. Defensive lineman Derrick Mitchell Jr. and linebacker Terrance Smith did not play due to injuries. When our offense struggles a little bit, we definitely come in strong, FSU cornerback P.J. Williams said. We know we have to make a play for them so they can get back on the field. Freshman defensive end Lorenzo Featherston was a surprise star for the Florida State defense after making his first career start. He posted seven tack les, including 2 1/2 for loss and a fumble recovery. Wake Forest could not block him early in the first half. Wake Forest entered as the worst of fense in the ACC and one of the worst in the country and that was exactly what Florida State needed to work out some bugs. The Seminoles missed more than 30 tackles last week and had allowed 300 yards passing in two of three games against FBS opponents this season. That didnt happen at all in 2013. We played well enough on defense and created some plays to stay in the football game, Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson said. Were struggling on of fense. Weve struggled all year. Florida State has some talented kids up front. We struggled to block them and when we blocked them we struggled to get open. Again, its not for a lack of ef fort. The Seminoles were their own worst enemy in the first half as the offense racked up the yards, but failed to capi talize at the end of drives. The turnovers didnt help, either. Winston tried to force the ball into tight coverage on Nick OLeary and safety Thomas Brown tipped the ball to corner Merill Noel, who recorded his second interception of the game. Wake Forest quickly gave the ball back when Mario Edwards forced a fum ble by Wolford that was recovered by Featherston. Four plays later, FSU run ning back Karlos Williams gave it back on a fumble. The Demon Deacons responded with their only score of the first half as Mike Weaver finished the seven-play drive with a 36-yard field goal with 1:20 left in the first quarter. Those were the first points Wake Forest has scored in Talla hassee since 2008. Florida State dominated the rest of the day despite a clunky effort by the of fense. The floodgates opened in the sec ond half as Mario Pender punched in a three-yard touchdown and freshman Travis Rudolph caught a 59-yard touch down from Winston. rff Noles defense makes up for flat offense in win Associated Press rffrrnrtrbrnnrrrrrrbrrfn bfn No. 25 TCU 37, No. 4 Oklahoma 33 FORT WORTH, Texas Paul Dawson returned an inter ception 41 yards for a touchdown, TCU made a huge fourth-and-1 stop with just over 3 minutes left and the No. 25 Horned Frogs remained unde feated with a 37-33 victory over No. 4 Oklahoma on Saturday. Oklahoma (4-1, 1-1 Big 12) had the ball after the two teams had three turnovers in a span of four plays another inter ception by Trevor Knight be tween two fumbles by TCU. On fourth down from the TCU 22, Samaje Perine was stuffed by linebacker Marcus Mallett for no gain. Officials confirmed on a replay review that Perine, who had three TD runs in the game, was stopped short of a first down. Dawsons big pick for TCU (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) came with 14:12 left. He reached up with both hands to grab the ball and raced untouched for a score to make it 37-31. No. 7 Baylor 28, Texas 7 AUSTIN, Texas Shock Linwood ran for 148 yards and the clinching touchdown and No. 7 Baylor overcame a rare off day by quarterback Bryce Petty and the nations No. 1 of fense to beat Texas 28-7. With Petty misfiring, the Bears (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) won with tough defense, two big plays on special teams and a power running game that wore down Texas (2-3, 1-1) in the second half. Terrell Burt scored Baylors first touchdown with a 62-yard return after a blocked field goal in the first quarter. A fake punt in the third set up Pettys touch down pass to Antwan Goodley. Linwood put it away with a short touchdown run in the fourth. Texas held Baylor to 390 total yards, but only narrowly avoided its first shutout at home since 1976. Longhorns quarterback Tyrone Swoopes had three turnovers, including a fumble at theBaylor 1 just be fore halftime. No. 13 Georgia 44, Vanderbilt 17 ATHENS, Ga. Hutson Mason threw two touchdown passes to Chris Conley, Todd Gurley ran for 163 yards with two scores and No. 13 Georgia beat Vanderbilt 44-17 on Saturday. Georgia (4-1, 2-1 Southeast ern Conference) used Gurleys scoring runs of 4 and 14 yards and Masons first touchdown pass to Conley to take a 21-0 lead in the first quarter. Vanderbilt (1-4, 0-4) re mained winless in the SEC. Gurleys first touchdown run, a 5-yarder, was out of the wild cat formation. He added a 14-yarder later in the opening quarter for a 14-0 lead. Another direct snap to Gur ley in the second quarter pro duced a twist. Instead of keeping the ball for a run as Vanderbilts defense expected, Gurley stopped and threw a wobbly left-handed pass to tight end Jeb Blazevich, who was wide open for the 50-yard completion. It was Georgias longest completion of the season. From wire reports TOP 25 BRIEFS STARKVILLE, Miss. Dak Prescott took the snap and saw nothing but empty field between him and the goal line. Instead of handing off the ball, the Missis sippi State quarterback decided to take care of it himself, doing just a little bit of a high step as he went into the end zone. With about 10 minutes left, it was over for Texas A&M. Prescott threw two touchdown passes, added three Tebow-style TD runs, and No. 12 Mississippi State overwhelmed No. 6 Texas A&M 48-31 on Saturday as a new contender emerged in the SEC West. A Mississippi State-ment, Prescott said. The first of two on Saturday as No. 11 Mississippi followed with a 23-17 victory against No. 3 Ala bama in Oxford. The Bulldogs (5-0, 2-0 South eastern Conference) jumped out to a 28-7 lead in the first half and never let Kenny Hill and the high-scoring Aggies (5-1, 2-1) get close enough to threaten the lead or quiet the Bulldogs fans and their clanging cowbells at Davis Wade Stadium. Hill threw for 365 yards and four touchdowns, but was picked off three times by linebacker Richie Brown, who matched a school record. They just beat us, Hill said. They had a great game plan and just stomped us. Credit them. Prescott first plowed into the end zone for two short TDs and pretty much sealed the deal with an 11-yard draw to make it 48-17 in the fourth quarter. Right there was kind of the nail in the coffin, Prescott said. The junior finished 19 for 25 for 259 yards, ran for 77 yards and caught a pass for 11. Prescott entered this season as a fringe Heisman Trophy candi date, but is way more than that now. Hes going to get a lot more at tention now with his perfor mance, Bulldogs coach Dan Mullen said. But as Ive told ev eryone, thats what we expect from him. Prescott wears the same No. 15 Tim Tebow did at Florida, runs the same offense and plays for the same coach Mullen who was offensive coordinator for the Gators. Prescott even got to hang with Tebow some this weekend. The 2007 Heisman winner was in town with the SEC Network and interviewed Prescott. I asked for No. 15 when I first came to Mississippi State be cause of Tim Tebow, Prescott said. Our games are kind of sim ilar, but Im a different player. I have my own type of game, but I want to mimic him in a way. Mississippi State has only won the SEC West once and spent far more time near the bottom of the division than the top over the years, but Mullen has an experi enced and talented team around a spectacular quarterback in his fifth season in Starkville. The Bulldogs showed beating LSU for the first time in 15 years a couple weeks ago was no fluke. For the first time, Mississippi State has beaten two top-10 teams in the same season. Sweet! Mullen said when he found out about that. The Bulldogs dominated A&M in almost every way. Josh Robin son ran for 107 yards and two scores and linebacker Be nardrick McKinney helped ha rass Hill. Hail State, indeed. When the new AP Top 25 comes out Sunday, Mississippi State will likely be in the top 10 for the first time since 1999. A&M scored on its first offen sive series, zipping down the field with ease to make it 7-0 on a 13yard pass from Hill to Josh Reyn olds. Mississippi States response was the games next four touch downs. The clanging cowbells might have been loud enough to hear 90 miles up the road in Oxford, where Alabama and Ole Miss were the second game of the Mag nolia States monster twin bill. It had been almost 28 years since Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville was the site of a top-15 matchup. That one didnt go too well for the Bulldogs (Auburn 356). This time the partying that started pre-dawn in Starkvegas because of the 11 a.m. local kick off never stopped. We feed off that, said center Ben Beckwith, who moved over from his usual left guard spot to replace the suspended Dillon Day. I know a bunch of them were probably a little woozy after last night. Prescotts 2-yard bull rush in the third quarter made it 34-10. A&M blocked the point after kick and then responded with a touch down by Speedy Noil to cut the lead to 34-17 with 3:33 left in the third. Just when it looked as if A&M might have some life, Mississippi State unleashed another Dak at tack. Prescott zipped a deep out to ward the sideline for Fred Brown, who slipped a tackler and went 51 yards for the score to make it 41-7. Theres half a season to play and a bunch of huge games still to play in the SEC West, starting next week when Auburn comes to Starkville. But for now Mississippi State is a contender, Prescott is a Heisman candidate and the col lege football world is about to hear a lot more cowbell. A Mississippi State-ment ntbtrf

r B5 Northwestern 20, No. 17 Wisconsin 14 EVANSTON, Ill. Godwin Igwebuike had three interceptions and Justin Jackson rushed for 162 yards, helping the resurgent Wildcats upset Melvin Gordon and No. 17 Wisconsin 20-14 on Saturday. Trevor Siemian threw for a touchdown and also had a key block on Miles Shulers 16yard TD run as Northwestern (3-2, 2-0 Big Ten) earned its third consecutive win. The Wildcats also had a nice day on spe cial teams, with Jack Mitchell kicking two short field goals and punter Chris Gradone handing over poor field position to the Bad gers for much of the afternoon. Gordon had 27 carries for a career-high 259 yards and a touchdown, but Tanner McEvoy and Joel Stave combined for just 138 yards passing on a cold, damp afternoon at Ryan Field. Wisconsin (3-2, 0-1) had scored at least 20 points in 17 consecutive games for the sec ond-longest such streak in school history. No. 20 Ohio State 52, Maryland 24 COLLLEGE PARK, Md. Ohio State marched up and down a field it had never seen before as if it owned the place, scoring on one quick drive after another as the No. 20 Buckeyes piled up 533 yards Saturday and spoiled Marylands Big Ten home debut with a 52-24 win. J.T. Barrett completed 18 of 23 passes for 267 yards and four touchdowns and also ran 16 times for 71 yards and a score. Ezekiel El liott rushed for 139 yards on 24 carries, and the defense had four interceptions to hush the first sellout crowd at College Park in nearly six years. The 51,802 fans, at least those rooting for the home team, mustve wondered what their great conference shift had wrought. Ohio State scored on drives lasting 3:01, 3:27, 1:18, 1:46 and 0:05 to take a 31-10 halftime lead. The Buckeyes (4-1, 1-0) have scored 168 points in three wins since losing to Virginia Tech. No. 21 Oklahoma St. 37, Iowa St 20 STILLWATER, Okla. Desmond Roland ran for 95 yards and two touchdowns and Tyreek Hill returned a kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown Saturday to help No. 21 Okla homa State defeat Iowa State 37-20. Brandon Sheperd caught a career-high eight passes for 91 yards and Jhajuan Seales added four catches for 75 yards and a score for the Cowboys (4-1, 2-0 Big 12). Hill had 148 yards in kickoff returns and 46 yards in punt returns. Daxx Garman passed for 271 yards and a touchdown and Ben Gro gan made three field goals for the Cowboys. The score was 6-6 when Roland scored as time expired in the first half. Hills kickoff re turn pushed the Cowboys lead to 20-6 in the opening seconds of the third quarter. Sam B. Richardson passed for 200 yards and threw two touchdown passes to E.J. Bibbs. The Cyclones (1-4, 0-3) were held to 322 total yards. No. 22 East Carolina 45, SMU 24 GREENVILLE, N.C. Shane Carden threw for 410 yards and four touchdowns to help No. 22 East Carolina beat SMU 45-24 in its American Athletic Conference debut Sat urday. Justin Hardy had three first-half touchdown catches for the Pirates (4-1, 1-0 AAC), who were playing with a national ranking for the first time in six years. Carden became the programs career passing leader midway through the third quarter while ECU finished with 581 yards. Still, it wasnt the kind of performance coach Ruffin McNeill wanted from his team coming out of a bye week. The Pirates ran out to a 21-0 lead before the offense looked as though it took its foot off the gas, while the defense never looked sharp against an SMU offense that had man aged one touchdown all year. The Mustangs (0-5, 0-1) finished with a season-high 390 yards and nearly made it a one-possession game early in the fourth. No. 5 Auburn 41, No. 15 LSU 7 AUBURN, Ala. Nick Marshall passed for 207 yards, ran for 119 and accounted for four touchdowns to lead No. 5 Auburn to a 41-7 blowout of No. 15 LSU on Saturday night. Auburn (5-0, 2-0 Southeastern Confer ence) dominated from the start on a week when No. 2 Oregon, No. 3 Alabama and No. 4 Oklahoma were upset. The 41 points equaled Auburns highest total in the rivalry set with the same margin in the 1999 game. LSU (4-2, 0-2), which turned to freshman quarterback Brandon Harris, has dropped its first two SEC games for the first time in coach Les Miles decade-long tenure. Harris completed 3 of 14 passes for 58 yards before getting replaced late in the third quarter by Anthony Jennings. With Marshall playing again like the Heisman Trophy candidate many expected him to be, Auburn could rise to the No. 2 spot it held after last season. From Wire reports TOP 25 BRIEFS OXFORD, Miss. Brushing aside a carnival-like atmosphere and Ala bamas potent defense, Mississippi quarterback Bo Wallace bounced around in the pocket and threw one perfect pass after another, willing the Rebels downfield in the fourth quarter. Two touchdown passes and one stun ning comeback later, No. 11 Mississippi had a 23-17 victory over No. 3 Alabama on Saturday and asserted itself as a true contender in the Southeastern Conference Western Division. We worked hard for this moment, said Ole Miss receiver Laquon Tread well, who caught a touchdown pass. And as (the final seconds) happened, I thought This isnt the end of it all. Its just the beginning. Wallace threw for 251 yards and three touchdowns, including a go-ahead 10-yarder to Jaylen Walton with 2:54 re maining. It capped a methodical, nearly flaw less fourth quarter for the Rebels (5-0, 2-0 SEC), who have won five games to start the season for the first time since 1962 and ended a 10-game losing streak against the Tide. When it was over, drinks flew into the air and students rushed the field in dis belief, celebrating what may be the big gest win for Ole Miss in a generation. It also capped a stunning day for the Mag nolia State No. 12 Mississippi State beat No. 6 Texas A&M 48-31 earlier Sat urday in Starkville. The Rebels trailed 17-10 midway through the fourth quarter, with a bru tally efficient Alabama offense con trolling the tempo. But Ole Miss pulled even on Wallaces 34-yard touchdown pass to Vince Sanders with 5:29 remain ing. On the ensuing kickoff, Alabamas Christion Jones fumbled and Ole Miss Kalio Moore recovered, giving the Reb els great field position at the Alabama 31. Channing Ward forced the fumble. A few plays later, Wallace found Wal ton in the end zone for the lead. Alabama (4-1, 1-1) still had a chance to win, driving the field quickly in the final minutes, but Senquez Golson in tercepted a pass from Blake Sims in the end zone with 37 seconds remaining. Golsons interception was an acro batic catch in the back of the end zone after the long heave by Sims. He was originally ruled out of bounds, but re plays showed he cradled the pass with his left hand and landed just inside the end zone. The feeling is indescribable right now, Golson said. After the call was confirmed by the officials, a euphoric stadium erupted. Students hung from the goal posts after the game and eventually pulled one down, carrying it across the field in ju bilation. Wallace completed 18 of 31 passes, saving his best for last. The confident sometimes even brash senior has often had a gunslingers reputation in the past, mixing great passes with inexplicable interceptions. But he kept mistakes to the minimum Saturday, coolly leading the Rebels when they needed him most. He made some big-time plays, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said. He just played so solid. On that last touchdown, that ball was right where it needed to be for us. It was a surprise ending to a game Al abama controlled most of the day. The Rebels won despite being outgained 396 to 323. T.J. Yeldon rushed for 123 yards on 20 carries. Amari Cooper caught nine passes for 91 yards. We did not finish the game like we needed to, Alabama coach Nick Saban said. I think the question for our team is, How do you respond to a loss? Sims was coming off a 445-yard, four-touchdown performance against Florida two weeks ago, but couldnt provide any heroics on Saturday. It was an electric atmosphere before the game. Ole Miss was hosting ESPNs College Gameday for the first time in school history and the schools famed tailgating area the Grove was over flowing with fans anticipating the big gest game on campus in more than a decade. Even pop star Katy Perry made an appearance on a gorgeous, sunny day in north Mississippi. But eventually, the party had to move to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. And somehow, it became even wilder. Ole Miss jumped out to a 3-0 lead by the end of the first quarter, but Ala bama responded with a 12-play, 68-yard drive midway through the second quar ter that ended with Sims 1-yard touch down run on fourth down. But Alabamas biggest play by far came a few minutes later. Cyrus Jones stripped the ball from Ole Miss running back ITavius Mathers, scooped it up and ran 13 yards untouched for a touchdown and a 14-3 lead. Television replays showed Jones grabbing Mathers face mask on the play, but it was a non-reviewable call so the touchdown call was allowed to stand. An angry stadium showered the officials with boos going into halftime, but the damage was done. The no-call hurt the Rebels, but so did an ineffective offense. Ole Miss gained only 105 yards in the first half as the Alabama defense stuffed the Reb els at almost every turn. That changed in the second half. The Ole Miss defense came into the game giving up just 8.5 points per game and played well again, keeping it close until the comeback began. The Tide lost running back Kenyan Drake to a leg injury in the second quarter. Saban said they believe the leg is broken and Drake has already been taken back to Birmingham, Alabama. rfn Storm the field SOUTH BEND, Ind. Ev erett Golson spotted tight end Ben Koyack alone in the back of the end zone just in time. On fourth-and-11 from the 23 and trailing 14-10, Golson dropped back to pass and managed to avoid the Stan ford rush just long enough to find Koyack as two Cardinal defensive backs tried to re cover from the blown assign ment. Koyack caught the pass as he fell out of bounds, while safety Jordan Richards dove to try to break it up, and scored the winning touch down with 61 seconds left to give the Irish the 17-14 vic tory on a cold, rainy Satur day. I went to my first read and it wasnt there and I needed to begin improvising a little bit, Golson said. I guess they busted the cover age a little bit and I found Koyack in the back of the end zone. Koyack said he broke off his route when he saw the coverage and hoped Golson would see him. He did, he said. It felt like the ball was in the air for about an hour. Stanford coach David Shaw was asked what cover age the Cardinal were in on the play. There was no coverage on Notre Dames touchdown pass, he said. That sounds sarcastic but he was wide open. There was nobody on him. Richards said Koyack got behind the Cardinal de fense. I was just trying to head over there as fast as I could but I just couldnt do it, he said. Golson struggled with ac curacy at times and threw an interception and had a fum ble that was hard to over come, but still managed to pull it out. Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly called Golson a winner, pointing out he is 15-1 as a starting quarterback. That 93.8 percent winning per centage is the best in school history. The kids a winner and he keeps competing and he keeps playing, Kelly said. And he has a bunch of win ners around him. So you never feel like youre out of it. You just keep playing and keep giving it a shot. The Fighting Irish im proved to 5-0 for just the third time since Lou Holtz left in 1996 and the second time in three seasons. The Cardinal (3-2) have two losses this early in the sea son for the first time since opening 1-2 in 2008 in Jim Harbaughs second season as coach. Golson also threw a 17yard TD pass to Chris Brown and Notre Dame amassed 370 yards of total offense against the nations top de fense. The game wasnt as exciting as Notre Dames 20-13 overtime victory two years ago on a goal-line stand, but it was close. The Irish defense held the Cardinal to 139 yards total offense and just 47 yards rushing. Stanford receiver Ty Montgomery, who entered the game averaging 69 yards a game receiving, was held to four catches for 12 yards. But he did have a 42-yard kickoff return that helped set up a Stanford touchdown late in the fourth quarter. Shaw was disappointed the Cardinal defense couldnt hold on. We had a chance to seal it and we didnt, he said. Stanford entered the game giving up 198 yards a game total offense and had given up only two runs of 25 yards or more. The Irish had 192 yards total offense at half time and Golson had a ca reer-long 33-yard run to set up a touchdown and C.J. Pro sise had a 26-yard run that set up a scoring chance. Amir Carlisle had a 26-yard catch. Golson was 20-of-43 pass ing for 241 yards with one interception and a fumble a week after having four turn overs against Syracuse. Kevin Hogan was 18 of 36 for 158 yards with two intercep tions for Stanford. Notre Dame had a chance to take the lead with 12 min utes left in the game, but holder Hunter Smith bun gled the snap on a 27-yard try. Notre Dame kicker Kyle Brindza kicked the ball into the line and Stanfords A.J. Tarpley returned it 39 yards to the Stanford 44. The Irish also had a failed field goal attempt in the first quarter when Smith bobbled another snap and Brindza missed wide right on a 41-yard at tempt. But Smith got the ball down for a 45-yard field goal midway through the fourth quarter after putting gloves on. Kelly sarcastically called putting gloves on the holder a revolutionary idea that will probably be now the big gest thing in college foot ball. Kelly said he was pleased with how the Irish, who were pushed around by Stanford his first year at Notre Dame, were able to compete de spite being young. You bring the next batch of guys in and theyre physi cally able to compete with arguably one of the more physical teams in college football, he said. Thats where you want your pro gram to be after five years. Golson rallies Irish to 17-14 win over Stanford Associated Press rfntbt f

Old Mill Tavern FDS Tally Ho/Educational Tours Hometown Values 000J7JV ST. ANDREWS, Scotland Oliver Wilson of England closed in on a maiden European Tour title when he moved three strokes clear of the field in the third round of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on Saturday. Wilson, playing with an invite as he lost full playing rights on tour in 2011, shot a 7-under-par 65 on the Old Course at St. Andrews to tally 15under 201. On his tail at 12 under were four players: World No. 1 Rory McIlroy (64), Englands Tommy Fleet wood (62), and the French pair of Raphael Jacque lin (69) and Alexander Levy (68). Heavy overnight rain caused an hours delay to the start of play, and officials adopted the pre ferred lie rule, meaning Fleetwoods and Louis Oosthuizens 10-under 62s werent counted as tying the Old Course record. Before he lost his card, Wilson, a 2008 Ryder Cup player, was runner-up nine times on tour, in cluding here in 2009. This is his 229th tour event. There is a long 18 holes still to go, so it will be a long day, but to win would mean a lot to me, said Wilson, ranked 792. I just love coming to play golf here on the three courses, and that walk up the 18th on the Old Course is pretty cool. He also wasnt fazed when McIlroy surged on the front nine to tie him briefly. McIlroy birdied five straight holes and made the turn on 30. But he hit into a bunker on the 16th, took two shots to get out and bogeyed the hole he eagled the day before. He finished with a 64, one off his best on the course. That was mission accomplished, McIlroy said. The last four holes wasnt really what I wanted but any time you shoot a score like that around St. Andrews, you have to be happy. Got myself into contention going into tomorrow, and Dad and I are going to get to play St. Andrews on his birth day tomorrow which will be a huge treat for both of us. Fellow Ryder Cup teammate Stephen Gallacher (69) at 9 under was five shots under the cut. But their other teammates Victor Dubuisson (75) at 1 under, and Martin Kaymer (71) at 1 over missed out.Lewis, Hedwall share lead at ReignwoodBEIJING Swedens Caroline Hedwall made five birdies on the back nine to shoot a 5-under 68 Saturday and grab a share of the lead with Stacy Lewis after the third round of the Reignwood LPGA Classic. The top-ranked Lewis started the day with a twostroke lead over fellow American Brittany Lang, but fell back with three bogeys through the 11th hole. She then made three straight birdies from the 13th before closing with a birdie on the 18th to regain a share of the lead with a 72. Hedwall and Lewis were at 13-under 206 at Reign-wood Pine Valley. Lang stayed in contention with a 72. She was tied for third with South Koreas Mirim Lee (68) at 11 under.Wilson regains lead at Dunhill by 3 shots KANSAS CITY, Kan. Kyle Busch raced his sixth NASCAR Na tionwide Series victory of the year Saturday, making a late pass on Kevin Harvick and holding on at Kansas Speedway. Busch, also the winner last week at Dover, extended his series-re cord victory total to 69 with his first win of the year on a 1.5-mile track. Harvick pulled away in his Chev rolet at the final restart with 40 laps to go, but Buschs Toyota got around him with 20 to go and won by 0.767 second. Ryan Blaney was third in a Ford after starting on the outside of the front row. Rookie Chase Elliott tightened his hold on the points lead with four races to go, finishing 10th after avoiding a collision with Jamie Dick shortly after the three-quarter mark in the 200-lap, 300-mile race. That padded his lead to 38 points. Regan Smith, who came into the race 26 points behind JR Motor sports teammate Elliott, crashed in practice Saturday morning and finished 22nd in a backup car. Paul Menard was fourth, fol lowed by pole winner Ty Dillon, Matt Kenseth, Elliott Sadler, Trevor Bayne, Brian Scott and Elliott. The race was marred by nine cautions for 42 total laps, and by the midpoint of the race only 22 drivers remained on the lead lap. With 50 laps remaining, that number had dropped to 11 and 12 drivers were out of the race. The dropouts included rookie Chris Buescher, who started third and led 20 of the first 90 laps before a collision with Kyle Larson with 110 laps remaining. Larsons car got loose and then drifted across the track into Bueschers path, the col lision peeling away the right-side panels of Bueschers Ford. He went behind the wall for emergency re pairs and was 49 laps down when he returned, finishing 28th and 51 laps down. But the day was roughest on Smith. Smith, who signed an extension Wednesday through 2015 with JR Motorsports, qualified 24th and then had to start at the rear after his crash in practice. He was well back in the pack when a swaybar arm fell of his car with just over 50 laps to go, forcing him behind the wall, and he finished seven laps down.

CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLEPage C1SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2014 Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW Iwas discouraged to find out recently that Oreo cookies are not part of a healthy diet. After 50 years of eating an Oreo every day, I was advised by a doctor friend that the old saying was An apple a day keeps the doctor away, and that Oreo can not be interchanged at will. I must have missed that story, because I swear it was Oreos. Anyway, the advice got me thinking that just maybe I should work more fruit into my diet. So a few weeks back I went on a diet that included a daily intake of oranges, apples, grapes, raisins. Better late than never, I concluded. Fruit would be good for me. I would have more energy. Play better tennis and probably be a nicer person, to boot. Tennis is one of my main ways of staying active. Several times a week after work I will meet with some friends at the local tennis courts to play. My problem has been that after working for nine or 10 hours and then going off to the tennis courts, I would often lose energy in the middle of the match. For many years I had been bringing along a few Oreo cookies, but they no longer seemed to be working. Fruit was the obvious answer. I had to slip some fruit into my tennis bag each morning to give me some extra energy halfway through my two-and-halfhour tennis match. I first tried to bring a banana, but I soon discovered that if you let a banana sit in trunk of a car in the hot Florida sun for nine hours most of its nutritional value turns to mush. Raisins seemed like the obvious answer. They come in a nice package and are already dried up and wrinkled. So earlier this week I went off to the tennis courts with a package of raisins in the bag. Now, mind you, I dont Get the scientists to whip me up an Oreo tree See WINDOW/ Page C3 As former Florida Supreme Court Justices, we once took an oath to protect the Constitution of the State of Florida. Today, we call on all Floridians to protect it by voting no on Amendment 2. This amendment, promoted as a compassionate effort to legalize marijuana for medical purposes, should be rejected, regardless of ones position on the issue of medical marijuana. Why should those who are both for and against medical marijuana vote no on Amendment 2? We offer five reasons. First, the amendment is so broadly cast and vague, it will open the door to the general use of marijuana, not the carefully regulated medical use of a drug for those truly suffering. When proposed amendments are placed on the ballot, voters only see a ballot title and ballot summary written by the amendment sponsors. Most voters dont have the time or inclination to read the full text of the actual amendment, much less study its impact. We have read the amendment and studied its impact and we are troubled by what voters are being told about Amendment 2. Voters are led to believe that medical marijuana could only be used for debilitating diseases. But the full text of the amendment allows the use of marijuana for virtually any medical condition at the discretion of any recommending physician, and no actual prescription is required. Former Fla. Supremes say no to Amendment 2 See NO/ Page C4 For almost 200 years, most people thought tomatoes were poisonous. Its not clear how this misconception began or why no one would listen to the small minority who ate them. According to a story recovered from an old farm journal, on Sept. 26, 1830, Col. Robert Gibbon Johnson stood on the steps of the courthouse in Salem, New Jersey, with a basket full of potentially toxic fruit (tomatoes). Despite warnings that the poison would turn his blood into acid, he told several hundred cheering spectators that he planned to eat the entire basket. Well, he did, and now we enjoy tomato slices in our salad and tomato paste on our pizza. Cannabis (marijuana) has been around for centuries. Its been used medically by the Chinese, Greeks and Arabic countries since recorded history. Before it was outlawed in the United States, there were 280 companies selling remedies based on cannabis. Then in the 1930s it began to get a bad reputation because of its association with Mexican immigrants, blacks and jazz musicians. The movie Reefer Madness came out in 1936 to propagandize the moral depravity and violence attributed to it. Later, cannabis became a target of the Nixon administration, which viewed it as central to the hippie and the anti-war movement. In 1970, the FDA classified it as a Schedule I drug (meaning it is highly addictive and has no medical use), along with heroin and LSD. Scientists and people who were familiar with cannabis knew this was not based on facts, but by then it had been demonized by political and business forces. Contrary to popular misconception, cannabis is not a narcotic. It is not physically addicting like Oxycontin, Xanax, Klonopin, hydrocodone, Dilaudid or Associated PressMedical marijuana clone plants grow at a medical marijuana dispensary in Oakland, Calif.

There has never been a single death directly related to using cannabis. However, 160,000 Americans die every year from prescription drugs. Millions are addicted to drugs they got as legal prescriptions for chronic pain and anxiety. Even Tylenol kills an estimated 980 people a year, according to the FDA. Cigarettes kill 480,000 Americans a year, alcohol 88,000, and according to Harvard researchers, sweetened beverages are linked to 25,000 deaths a year. There have been remarkable historical and scientific reports of cannabis effectiveness in treating glaucoma, epilepsy and ALS, also known as Lou Gehrigs Disease. In the 21 states where it is legal now, many physicians are using it with great success to treat chronic pain syndromes, cancer pain, nausea, poor appetite and mood disorders. As a physician, I deal with large numbers of patients addicted to Oxycontin, Percocet, Xanax, Klonopin, methadone and Valium. I would much favor substituting cannabis over these traditional drugs because it is safer and physically nonaddicting. I have personally seen it used by two of my family members with terminal disease with great effectiveness when no other medicines would work. Some have argued that legalizing medical marijuana will mean that it might be misused. Maybe people will fake symptoms or kids might get a hold of it. Well, its already being used by lots of people, adults and kids. I dont know what will change in that arena.

Page C2SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2014 POA should have sought input on fenceMy wife and I purchased our property in 1999 and still live in our home that was constructed that year. We enjoy Pine Ridge and the equestriantype area that resembles a horse ranch. Even though our home is not located in that area, it enhances the value of all of the homeowners properties within the subdivision. In 2013, the Pine Ridge Homeowners Association (POA) requested the county install a fence to separate our community from County Road 486. There has, since installation, been some vandalism of the fence. Acting on the POA request, the county modified the original agreement so that the fence now belongs to the county instead of Pine Ridge. This has created a dilemma, as the initial cost of construction and installation was paid for by all county taxpayers. The county modification of the agreement will also shift maintenance cost to all county taxpayers, unless amended. Since this fence was requested by the POA on behalf of Pine Ridge Estates property owners, the POA should maintain the fence. Apparently there was not a prior meeting between POA board of directors and appropriate county department personnel to evaluate an estimated cost of construction and maintenance of said fence. This should be a lesson for the POA board of directors; analysis and an estimated evaluation of project cost should be conducted and the proposal should be reviewed with the homeowners association before making a decision to implement.Darrell W. Weston Beverly HillsSomething to remember this monthOctober begins Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As a breast cancer survivor, I would like to share a few things that I have learned. If you have been told that you have dense breasts, please request more than a mammogram. Dense breasts make it difficult to read your mammogram; even tumors that are quite large can be missed. Mine was missed, and I should have asked for a more thorough screening. I relied on the mammogram and was not aware of the mammograms shortcomings. A team approach to the treatment of cancer gives you more confidence. A Stage 4 diagnosis in some cases can be treated for quite a long time. It did not mean that I would die right away. Hope you have good insurance; it is an expensive disease.Barbara Bradway Inverness The season of sleaze is in full bloom. More than 4,000 times, Gov. Rick Scott has broadcast a campaign commercial featuring an unnamed Floridian with a tale of woe. The poor fellow claims to have been fleeced by convicted Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein and also former Gov. Charlie Crist, Scotts Democratic opponent in the gubernatorial race. While governor (and a Republican), Crist took campaign money from Rothstein. Now weve learned theres a good reason why the aggrieved citizen in Scotts TV commercial wasnt identified. He is Dean Kretschmar, a wealthy Republican whose attorney is also a GOP activist and donor to Scott. It gets even muckier. The attorney, William R. Scherer, was once described as a mentor by Rothstein himself, the same low-life with whom Scott is trying to smear Crist. Scherer even attempted to get Rothstein a lighter prison sentence for the $1.4 billion swindle. It didnt work out; Rothstein was sentenced to 50 years, which he is now serving. Scotts ad doesnt tell you about Scherer. All you see is a downcast Kretschmar saying things like, I got swindled by both Rothstein and Charlie. Never does he add: Oh, by the way, my lawyers a big pal of Rothstein, too. Nor does Kretschmar reveal that he recovered most of the $8 million that hed given Rothstein to invest. Crist wasnt named in Kretschmars lawsuit, or any of the Rothstein litigation. The Scott commercial repeats a sworn claim by Rothstein that he was able to buy Florida judgeships in exchange for contributions to Crists political campaign. In 2010, that accusation was investigated by federal officials, who said no evidence supported it. That isnt to say Crist doesnt look bad for taking Rothsteins hefty donations, appointing him to a judicial nominating commission and posing for dorky birthday photos with the man. But Charlie wasnt the only one who didnt question the source of Rothsteins wealth, or his avid generosity. At the height of his Ponzi dealing, the Fort Lauderdale lawyer and his firm donated exorbitantly to politicians, mostly Republicans, including the presidential campaign of John McCain. Crist sheepishly returned the money soon after Rothstein was exposed, whereas McCain had already spent the funds. (Video clips showing McCain at functions with Rothstein were used to embarrass the Arizona senator during his re-election bid in 2010.) At the time of Crists Rothstein infatuation, Rothsteins reputation was intact and he hadnt yet been implicated in any crimes. A politician would have to be nuts to take a campaign check from somebody after that person had been charged, convicted and sent away, right? Yep but it almost happened. Back in 2008, a big South Florida real-estate developer named James Batmasian went to federal prison for cheating the government out of $253,000 in unpaid taxes for his employees. Batmasian served about eight months, and his law license was suspended. All these facts are in the public record, easily accessible online. The case had been reported in the media. Yet earlier this year, astoundingly, the bright bulbs who are running Scotts re-election campaign decided it would be a swell idea for Batmasian to host a $10,000-per-ticket fundraiser for the governor. The shindig was all set for June 6 at Batmasians very nice, very large house in Boca Raton. Then the left-leaning magazine Mother Jones published an online article about it, which tickled Democrats and elicited the following grim response from Scotts office: This event has been canceled. Probably a smart idea. Batmasian is now the defendant in a nasty sexual-harassment lawsuit. His former chief financial officer is suing him, too, alleging illegal business practices that Batmasian denies. Even in Florida, where crooks permeate politics, Scotts Batmasian bungle is extraordinary. Either he didnt know who the guy was, or he did know and just figured nobody would find out about their get-together. Charlie Crist might be a little goofy and naive, but during his four years as governor he never once planned a fundraising event at the home of a convicted felon. Gov. Scott has refused to talk about his connection to Batmasian. It would be a good topic for Crist to bring up during the debates, and an even better topic for a new campaign commercial.

We agree. Last month, former Commissioners Gary Bartell, Jim Fowler, Vicki Phillips, Brad Thorpe and Josh Wooten sent a letter to the county commission asking that the Fort Island Beach pier be named after former Citrus County Commissioner Roger Batchelor, who died Sept. 11. We urge commissioners to grant the request a fitting tribute to a man who was the embodiment of a true public servant. Batchelor, an avid fisherman, spearheaded the effort to have the public pier built at Fort Island Beach. Interestingly, as a fishing guide, Batchelor made a living chartering fishing trips on his boat. Building a public pier allowing free access to fisherman would have been in direct competition with Batchelors guide business. Batchelor felt the communitys needs were greater than the individual and championed the project. He believed even people without boats should have an opportunity to fish. Batchelor served eight years on the Citrus County Commission (District 1) from 1996 to 2004. His service to the community was genuine and ran deep. He was a member of Sertoma for 40 years and served several terms as district governor. While working at Florida Power, Batchelor was known as the go-to guy and worked tirelessly providing support for a number of community events throughout the county. Citrus County Chamber CEO Josh Wooten, who served with Batchelor on the county commission, said what stood out to him about his fellow commissioner was his compassion for others. He cared about the less fortunate, and not just during his time on the commission, Wooten said. That spanned throughout his whole life. Former County Commissioner Jim Fowler echoed those sentiments. He was a good man, Fowler said, a very loyal, faithful person. He was always involved with doing something good in the community, usually behind the scenes. Citrus County is fortunate to have had such a dedicated community servant as one of its commissioners and residents. Commissioners should bestow this fitting tribute upon Batchelor, a man who loved fishing and who loved doing things for his community, and rename the Fort Island Beach pier in his honor. THE ISSUE:Campaign to name pier after Roger Batchelor.OUR OPINION:Wonderful tribute to a true public servant.

We need a public accounting for these funds. In nine years they say they took in $67.5-plus million and spent $34.6 million on maintenance and supposedly $19.8 million on repaying a loan. That leaves $13.1 million in the account. Wheres that money? They said $7 million is set aside for (County Road) 491. That leaves $6 million unaccounted for. Please tell me where this money is.Does punishment fit? I just read in the paper today in the crime report that a man was arrested.

COMMENTARYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014 C3 Perfect? Not quite, but 47 out of 48 isnt bad If all goes according to schedule, this column will appear on Sunday, Oct. 5, but today as I string the words together, it is Sept. 25. Yesterday, Cheryl and I celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary. A 48th wedding anniversary is not a milestone, and in todays world, in comparison to many of the announcements I see, we are still relatively newlyweds. Ive seen 60, 65, 70 and even 75 years recognized. Even so, I found that our day was really a very special day after all. We received cards and telephone calls. Also, not really knowing what I was doing, I shared the Facebook notification of a life event our wedding anniversary. Cheryl and I have had no less than 150 complimentary comments and/or thumbs up. This outpouring has made our hearts glad and very thankful. We have both noted the number of folks who referred to us as a perfect couple with the perfect marriage. Wish it was true. Dont get me wrong, I am quick to agree that ours is about as good as marriage can get. We have been and remain happy beyond words. We have been and remain blessed beyond measure. But it hasnt been perfect, not quite. Did I actually say that? I try to portray our world from the most positive vantage point possible, emphasizing the good and avoiding the bad. So much so that from time to time Cheryl and I are chided about being Ozzie and Harriet. The illustrative thought that has entered my mind as I write this is an incident from several years ago. Cheryl and I were enjoying our 30th anniversary dinner with our children. I think Becky might have already been married, but for this particular event, I only recall it being Cheryl, Beth, Becky, Fred 3 and me. As the dinner progressed, Becky spontaneously gushed, wonderful years! Cheryl replied, Beth protested, I was 29 a few weeks ago, it has to be 30! Cheryl smiled as she countered, Weve been married for 30 years, 29 of them have truly been wonderful, but one of them wasnt. She was right, of course, and we both still know very well which year it was and why it wasnt wonderful. Please dont read too much into this, but the circumstances we endured that year were very trying. At such a time is when Gods love, the husbands and wifes love for each other, and perseverance can and do bring a couple through. It is not something to dwell on, but it is also something best never fully forgotten. And Cheryl and I both are ever so thankful 47 out of 48 isnt bad.Fred Brannen, an Inverness resident, has been a Chronicle columnist since 1988 and is the author of the novel, At the Bottom of Biscayne Bay. He may be contacted at fbrannenjr@gmail.com or via brannenbooksllc.com. Fred BrannenA SLICE OF LIFE play tennis with a bunch of wimpy guys; were pretty serious about our sport. One of my opponents, Jerry Boley of Inverness, is an official over at the federal prison in Sumter County. He hangs out all day with murderers, kidnappers and the occasional terrorist, so he has been known to occasionally have a bad attitude about losing. I had to quell a riot in A Block today and then tell a murderer that his 14th request for early release had been denied, Boley would say. What did you do at work? Hmmm. I went to a meeting and got barked at by Scott Adams, I replied. My day didnt seem to match up in the tough-guy category, but what the heck. So that brings me to the raisins at my Tuesday night tennis match. About half way through the match, I was running out of steam and went to my bag for my secret weapon. I popped out the raisins, took a handful and tossed them in my mouth. I tried to look tough, but thats difficult with raisins. After walking back onto the court and munching my raisins, I got a strange feeling on my hands and arms. I looked down and there were hundreds of raisins running up and down my arms. After a closer look, and a few bites, it became obvious that the raisins had somehow become ants. Ive never had this problem with Oreos. While I continued to munch the raisins in my mouth, I threw my tennis racket to the ground and begin to wildly wipe the ants off my hands and arms. I may or may not have squealed like a 9year-old. Did I mention that I was still chewing? About that time my tongue began to send signals to the brain which said WARNING! WARNING! My tongue was on fire and a thousand ants impersonating raisins were feasting on the inside of my mouth. For the uninitiated, tennis has a lot of rules. If you violate the rules, you lose a point. If you violate more rules, you lose the game. I began spitting and barfing up the mouth invaders while I rolled around on the court and occasionally said bad words. All of these actions are against the rules, but my life was in the balance and I didnt care. It took 10 minutes of rinsing my mouth with water and spitting to be rid of the intruders. My hands and arms were covered with bites. My mouth was still on fire as I sat on the bench trying to regain enough composure to continue to play. Prison guy Boley walked over and very empathetically said: I stopped a riot in A Block today. Get out here and play more tennis. My fruit campaign has ended. My tennis bag will only carry Oreos going forward.Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle. Email him at gmulligan @chronicleonline.com. WINDOWContinued from Page C1 Cause of overcrowdingIm calling (about) the article in Sundays paper (Sept. 28) about dogs and air conditioning. Im a dog lover also, but if these people own dogs and they want a shelter built and air conditioning for these animals, let them pay for it themselves. I dont have a dog and I feel as a taxpayer that I shouldnt have to pay for it. So this is my opinion and if these people dont take care of their animals and let them breed, this is why we have a situation of overcrowding in the shelter.People shelterSomething is very wrong here. We have homeless people living in the woods some of them with children. Is the county going to build them a shelter? Yet the countys going to build a shelter for the animals that dont even want to be in a shelter.Thanks for dog parkI just want to take the opportunity to thank the people involved who put in the doggie play area on Bluebird Lane off from Yulee Drive in Citrus County. That place is awesome. You did a lot of work. It looks very nice. And for the people that use it: Please appreciate it along with your animal and please pick up afterwards. Thanks again. Well get a lot of enjoyment out of it. Zoey.Our bad roadsIts about time someone was heard about Citrus Springs because I have been calling every other week and bothering the road maintenance people, telling them about the holes, especially on North Citrus Springs Boulevard the main road into and out of (Citrus Springs). Its like driving over railroad tracks, its so bad. And theres constantly holes popping up and you cant even do the speed limit. Youve got to do like 15 and thats even pushing it because your car ends up having to have a front-end alignment. These roads in Citrus Springs are disgusting, and they are very familiar with me because, like I said, I call all the time. Hopefully something will get done.Asking for adsThe people of this county need to know that when you apply for an absentee ballot, the commissioner of elections gives your email address to all the candidates. The result is youre going to have your email box filled up with campaign advertising.Thanks for lunchA special thank you for the personnel providing my lunch at Codys Sunday (Sept. 28). Remember, our Father blesses those who bless others.Thanks for vets infoI just wanted to thank you for all the veterans information you had in Sundays paper (Sept. 28). I was wondering if there is any group that visits veterans in nursing homes to take them to lunch or just have a chat with them. There are some who have no extended family here and I was just curious about that.Silly to want A/C for animal shelterYou know, you people that want a new animal shelter and air conditioning for all the cats and dogs that are within there, you really do sound silly. If you would only think of all the problems that we have in Citrus County and youre worried about air conditioning for animals. How silly can a person get. I mean just think about it. Tired of machinesThis is about the VA clinic in Lecanto. I never had a complaint until now. But you call them at (4:20 p.m.) to ask them a question or cancel an appointment and they have an answering machine on that said this answering machine person is away from the phone or some other thing, but then they said to leave a message and then you cant get the message recorder. It just keeps saying over and over and over and they just keep passing on to somebody else on a machine. So you spend an hour or half hour trying to get through and you cant. Its all automated from that time (4:20) and the office hours are until 4:30. Somebody should be answering the phone until 4:30. Somebody just neglected to do their job and I think thats wrong.Commissioners not listeningA comment on a letter to the editor in todays paper (Sept. 30, titled Commissioners not listening) from Gail Jannarone. She or he hit the situation right on the head with the commissioners. Ive been preaching this for I dont know how long and I cannot believe that more and more people dont get behind this thing. Im starting to wonder what the connection is between the county commissioners and the Chronicle. Letters toTHE EDITOR Figuring out the fenceI am a resident of Pine Ridge and I do not know the history of fence that was installed as part of the four-lane widening of 486. What I do know is that it is common practice when road improvements of this scale are done noise abatement to existing residential neighborhoods is considered. If this fencing was installed for the purposes of noise abatement, then it should be the countys responsibility to maintain. The argument that it only benefits Pine Ridge is no different that suggesting a sidewalk put in only benefits those that use it; so they should maintain it. The fact of the matter is that road improvements go well beyond the concrete or asphalt surface we drive on. As for the fencing, it is an eyesore and will get worse over time. If the fence was installed for noise abatement, it can be argued it is not the right material for the purpose, especially considering the long-term maintenance cost. If the fence was installed for any purpose other than noise abatement, it should have never been installed at taxpayers expense. Today, there are less than a half dozen homes within 200 feet of the fence. I do not want to suggest noise abatement should not have been considered for these residents. What I do suggest is that the fence has limited to no impact on the traffic noise heard at these homes. This fencing appears to be standard fencing and not that designed to absorb or reflect noise. Generally, noise abatement fencing or walls are taller than the fence installed. Assuming the fencing does not improve noise levels at the nearby homes or was not installed for noise abatement, I am all for having it removed. If it is for noise abatement, the county needs to step up to maintaining their noise abatement fence. If it is removed, I suggest the county look at predefined fencing needs. If a predefined need exist, move the fence. If none exists, the county should ask neighboring communities, governmental agencies, parks or not-for-profit organizations if they will remove the fence at their expense in exchange for the fence.Gilbert Johnson Pine RidgeAn argument in favor of 1-cent taxThis editorial comment will attempt to differentiate the cost to the public via the one cent gas option verses the MSBU option for providing the needed county road maintenance. The front-page article in the newspaper on Sunday Sept. 28 was very well done and the information provided regarding use of taxes on road works was very definitive. I wish there would have been more information regarding MSBU fees that would be assessed for maintaining the county roads. I envision three scenarios. The first, and the most costly, is providing a new asphalt road where the road is presently sand or lime rock. The second most expensive is resurfacing an existing paved road with asphalt. The third and least expensive maintenance is applying a micro-emulsion surface to a road in order to seal the existing asphalt or oil/rock road. These three processes are obviously different in cost, thus under the MSBU strategy the property owner adjacent to the road could be assessed one of three different fees dependent upon the needs for the road in front of their property. So far no specific information has been provided by the county or the newspaper. In the article published on Sunday, the least cost presented for road maintenance is $100,000 per mile of road. With a mile being 5280 feet, this translates to a cost of $18.40 per linear foot. Therefore under an MSBU strategy the property owner would be assessed $18.40 for every foot of road on their property line. This translates to $1840 for 100 feet of road frontage, $2760 for 150 feet of frontage, etc. Now remember, I stated this is the lowest cost revealed in the article. I am sure the cost would be significantly more for the more costly construction or maintenance processes. Now if you recall, about two months ago there was an interview with County Commissioner Joe Meek that revealed that if we added a 1 cent to our present 6-cent sales tax, the extra 1 cent would be used for county road maintenance. The advantage to this approach is that everyone who uses the roads would be paying for the road maintenance, not just property owners. And of course, the big plus is that the snowbirds would be providing about 40 percent of the sales tax that would be used for the road maintenance. To me this is a no-brainer. As a property owner who has in the past had to pay the MSBU fee to have my road paved, I know that it is a much lesser burden on me and other property owners to pay an additional 1 cent in sales tax than to have to deal with another MSBU assessment. I do wish that the Chronicleand the county would get together and provide the public in a newspaper article what the actual cost per linear foot to the property owners would be for the various maintenance processes if the MSBU is utilized to recover costs. That way any property owner can calculate what the MSBU fee would be for his/her parcel of land. I would not be surprised if there are more maintenance scenarios than what I have described. My vote will be yes for the referendum providing a 1-cent addition to the sales tax provided that these monies are specifically designated to be used for county road maintenance. I think that all who use our roads and expect decent roads should be responsible for paying for the road maintenance as needed, not just the property owners.Dan Groner Lecanto SOUND OFFCALL563-0579

make is that legalizing medical marijuana may lead to the decriminalization or legalization of it. In my opinion, yes, it might. Alcohol was banned in the 1920s and s, but it certainly didnt go away. Instead, we got gangsters financed by illicit liquor cartels, moonshiners pedaling lead-poisoned corn liquor and what seemed to be a big upswing in the consumption of alcohol. The Roaring Twenties! Similarly, this prohibition on cannabis has done little to stop people from using it, but its caused a huge drug war in Mexico, turned many of our young people into criminals (America has by far the largest proportion of its citizens in prison compared to all other countries) and drained money into the black market that could have been taxed. Meanwhile, we have wasted $1 trillion fighting the War on Drugs initiated in 1971. This is modern prohibition. Why, then, is there so much opposition to medical marijuana? Mostly, I think, people just dont know much about it and have been taught to categorize it like the other illegal drugs. Their arguments are circular: Marijuana is bad because its illegal. Marijuana is illegal because its bad. Some still see it as a symbol of the counterculture and oppose it on those grounds. Another major hurdle to the legalization of medical cannabis has to do with self-serving lobbying efforts. Just follow the money. Pharmaceutical companies dont want any competition from a nonpatentable drug that they cant profit from. The criminal justice system, which more and more is using for-profit, private prisons, has much to lose if cannabis is decriminalized. Politicians pander to their constituents cognitive biases and vocally oppose it if they think it will get them more votes. There are some who believe police like marijuana laws because they allow them to easily target minorities. Physicians are not fond of losing the power of the prescription pad to a natural remedy and are also influenced by pharmaceutical companies. As far as Rep. Smiths assertion about the FMA being against Amendment 2, the FMA represents only about half of Florida physicians. I am a member of the FMA but I respectfully disagree with its position. Heck, I remember seeing some old TV advertisements showing that more doctors prefer Camel cigarettes than any other brand YouTube it. Look up the history of cannabis. Do your own research, and be an informed voter. Vote yes on Amendment 2 on Nov. 4. Disclaimer: I do not personally use cannabis or any mind-altering substance. My opinions are based on my own research.Bob Goethe is an anesthesiologist in Citrus County. He lives in Crystal River. Second, Amendment 2 endangers Floridians by granting broad immunity from criminal and civil liability to virtually everyone involved in the chain of custody of marijuana. Today our criminal and civil justice systems protect citizens from harmful acts and compensate victims and families in cases of medical malpractice and negligence. But under Amendment 2, those providing and using medical marijuana, including every certifying physician, would be immune from basic enforcement and accountability that protect our safety. This would make marijuana the only drug under Florida law for which providers, caregivers and users would be absolved from liability if someone is harmed from its use. Third, Amendment 2 creates a right to use marijuana, coupled with a right to privacy for medical marijuana users, without regard to age. This could be construed to allow minors to obtain marijuana for purported medical reasons without the knowledge or consent of their parents. Fourth, Amendment 2 creates the role of medical marijuana caregiver. There is only one requirement to be a caregiver be at least 21. Amendment 2 requires no medical expertise, training or background checks for caregivers, who would have the authority to provide marijuana to multiple individuals. This caregiver provision could be used as a legal shield to protect drug dealers from prosecution. The Florida Department of Health estimates that if Amendment 2 passes, there will be approximately 250,000 caregivers and nearly 1,800 pot shops that would dispense marijuana. This calls into question the states ability to adequately regulate the distribution of marijuana, since it would not be obtained from traditional pharmacies, but from shops run by the marijuana industry. Fifth, if Amendment 2 is approved, it would be almost impossible to fix its many flaws because it would be enshrined in the Constitution, rather than being a general law that can be changed or improved as needed to respond to inevitable problems. Whether marijuana should be legalized for medical purposes is an issue about which reasonable people disagree and more study is needed. But anyone who reads the full text of Amendment 2 should readily agree that it is plagued by loopholes and vagueness that would lead to a myriad of unintended and undesirable consequences. Amendment 2 doesnt belong in Floridas Constitution. As former Florida Supreme Court Justices who love Florida and its great Constitution, we urge voters to protect Floridas Constitution by voting No on Amendment 2.Parker Lee McDonald, Chief Justice 1986-1988, Justice 1979-1994; Leander J.

Section DSUNDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Bruce WilliamsSMART MONEY DEAR BRUCE: When our children were born, we started purchasing Series EE bonds to have for their education. Once the 529 plans came into existence, we stopped purchasing bonds and put our funds into the 529 plans. My oldest son has completed his freshman year of college and the funds in the 529 plan were applied for his entire first year. We now want to use the bonds to pay for his next semester. I have always heard that if they are used for education, there should be no or very little tax implications of cashing them in. They are in my wifes and my sons names as her or my son. Most all have matured. Can you shed any light on the tax implications of doing this? J.M. DEAR J.M.: If the money is being used for educational purposes, there will be no taxes due upon cashing in the bonds. As they are in your wifes name or your sons, you should have no difficulty. The best place to begin is with your local bank. It can take care of this for you, although, it doesnt have any obligation to help you, as it once did. DEAR BRUCE: Does the government insure money market funds or does the broker/investor? Reader DEAR READER: Some money market funds are invested in ways that are insured by the federal government, but there are many exceptions, so be certain you know what the exceptions are. By and large, it should be very clear, and it will be made clear by the seller of the funds, who is responsible in case things go bad. DEAR BRUCE: Can I claim relocating expenses paid by my employer when tax time comes around? Harry DEAR HARRY: Your notion is an interesting one claiming expenses paid by your employer to get a tax refund. The only problem EE series bonds help aid college funding See MONEY/ Page D4 Dr. Frederick Herzog, Ph.DEXPERIENCE MATTERS At the Sept. 24 monthly membership meeting, Chairman Bob Braatz facilitated his final meeting as president and chairman of Citrus County SCORE. Executive leadership now transfers to the newly elected president and chairman, Peter Kranker. He formally assumed his responsibilities effective Oct. 1, the first day of SCOREs fiscal year. Under recently revised bylaws, the chairmanship is a minimum two-year term. A brief SCORE ceremony known as the Passing of the Gavel symbolized this leadership change. Going forward, Kranker will bring his wide range of experience and leadership skills to SCORE Citrus.INTRODUCING PETER KRANKERPeter Kranker brings a world of experience and lifelong accomplishments to Citrus County SCORE. Peter is originally from California, where he attended high school and played football. He earned his bachelors degree in business from the University of Oklahoma and played football during his undergraduate years. While in graduate school at Troy University, Kranker received his MBA in accounting. COL. KRANKERKranker, a colonel in the Marines, was a jet fighter pilot. Because of his overall fitness, he was offered the opportunity to train on different aircrafts, 17 in all. He flew for the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps. His training included helicopters. Kranker enhanced these unique experiences by his attendance at the Air War College and Naval War College. Kranker reached a high level of military competence, which qualified him as a commanding officer. After military service, Peter flew for Eastern Airlines as a commercial pilot.HUSBAND, FATHER, BUSINESS OWNER AND SAILORPeter and Julie Kranker SCORE Citrus welcomes new chapter president See HERZOG/ Page D4 Associated PressSunbathers walk along a badly eroding patch of resort-lined crescent beach Sept. 14 in Negril in western Jamaica. Some sections of the beach are barely wide enough for a decent-sized beach towel, and the Jamaican National Environment and Planning Agency says the sands are receding at a rate of more than a yard per year. BYE-BYE BEACHES? BYE-BYE BUSINESS Associated PressNEGRIL, Jamaica Tourists from around the world are drawn to a stretch of palm-fringed shoreline known as Seven Mile Beach, a crescent of white sand along the turquoise waters of Jamaicas western coast. But the sands are slipping away and Jamaicans fear the beach, someday, will need a new nickname.Each morning, groundskeepers with metal rakes carefully tend Negrils resort-lined shore. Some sections, however, are barely wide enough for a decent-sized beach towel and the Jamaican National Environment and Planning Agency says sand is receding at a rate of more than a yard a year. The beach could be totally lost within 30 years, said Anthony McKenzie, a senior director at the agency. Shrinking coastline long has raised worry for the areas environmental and economic future. Now, the erosion is expected to worsen as a result of climate change, and a hint of panic is creeping through this laid back village, one of the top destinations in a country where a quarter of all jobs depend on tourism. If the water takes over this beach, well, thats the end of the tourists, Lyn Dennison said as she tended to her beachside stand selling jewelry and wooden statues of roosters, horses and other animals. For much of its history, Negril was an isolated fishing outpost. In the late 1960s, it began to draw American hippies lured by the scenery and cheap marijuana. As its fame grew, its charms were discovered by hard-partying spring breakers and more sober-minded visitors. Resorts such as Sandals and the Grand Lido went up and the number of annual visitors grew from about 40,000 in 1980 to more than 400,000 in 2012. Fearful of losing their main draw, some alarmed hoteliers are pressing the government to refill the beach with dredged sand, a pricey step many experts say is a temporary fix at best. Jamaica is readying plans to build submerged breakwaters it hopes will absorb wave energy and slow loss of shoreline, using an initial $5.4 million in grants from a U.N. climate change convention. The breakwater project in Negril, which one study says could cost as much as $77 million over the course of 80 years, offers a glimpse of what may lie ahead for other coastal towns. Caribbean islands, many already heavily in debt, will be faced with the choice of trying to armor shores with seawalls and breakwaters, or conducting a costly retreat from seas that the U.N.backed Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says could rise by nearly a yard by the end of the century. Beaches across the region are being transformed by a variety of factors: shoreline development; surges from increasingly intense storms; coastal pollution that affects marine life; coral reefs crumbling in warmer waters. The changes are particularly worrisome for the Caribbean because of its dependence on seaand-sand tourism. In addition, roughly 70 percent of the Caribbeans people and much of its essential infrastructure are situated along coasts. The region is facing an existential threat, said Ulrich Trotz, science adviser for the Caribbean Community Climate Change Center, which provides policy advice and guidelines to more than a dozen member nations and territories. We dont have much time. Action now is imperative if the Caribbean is to survive as we know it, Trotz said in a phone interview from Antigua. According to the World Bank, some areas of the island of St. Vincent have lost up to 30 yards of beach over the last nine years.

Dinglers attend conference on hearing, brain connectionDenny and Bonnie Dingler of Professional Hearing Centers in Inverness recently joined more than 275 leading hearing care professionals from across the U.S. attending the 2014 Human Link Conference on Hearing Care is Health Care. Participants discussed the growing body of research exploring the connection between hearing health and brain health. Hearing starts in the brain, Bonnie Dingler said. The brain processes and interprets the sounds the ears detect. When hearing is compromised, such as with hearing loss, the sound signal that the brain is accustomed to processing is different and it takes more effort to fill in the blanks. This is why hearing loss can be so tiring and can drain the energy people need for everyday activities.

BUSINESS DIGEST Special to the ChronicleSweet Swing Driving Range. Gregory Perrone Associated PressLOS ANGELES New details on a cyberattack against JPMorgan Chase & Co.s computer servers this summer add to increasing doubts over the security of consumer data kept by lenders, retailers and others. The New York-based bank disclosed Thursday that the breach compromised customer information pertaining to roughly 76 million households and 7 million small businesses. Among the customer data stolen were names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses, though only customers who use the websites Chase.com and JPMorganOnline and the apps ChaseMobile and JPMorgan Mobile were affected, the bank said. JPMorgan stressed that theres no evidence that the data breach included account numbers, passwords, Social Security numbers or dates of birth. It also noted that it has not seen any unusual customer fraud stemming from the data breach. The server breach follows data thefts that have hit financial firms and major retailers this year, adding to consumer concerns over the risk of identity theft and fraud. The Chase heist is even more disturbing than the recent retail breaches because banks are supposed to have fortress-like protection against intruders, said Gartner security analyst Avivah Litan. This is really a slap in the face of the American financial services system, Litan said. Honestly, this is a crisis point. JPMorgan Chase, the nations biggest bank by assets, has been working with law enforcement officials to investigate the cyberattack. The bank discovered the intrusion on its servers in mid-August and has since determined that the breach began as early as June, spokeswoman Patricia Wexler said. We have identified and closed the known access paths, she said, declining to elaborate. She also declined to comment on whether JPMorgan has been able to determine who was behind the cyberattack on its servers. In response to the data breach, the company has disabled compromised accounts and reset passwords of all its technology employees, Wexler said. In a post on its Chase.com website, the bank told customers that it doesnt believe they need to change their password or account information. It also noted that customers are not liable for unauthorized transactions when they promptly alert the bank. The breach is yet another in a series of data thefts that have hit financial firms and major retailers. Last month, Home Depot said that malicious software lurking in its check-out terminals between April and September affected 56 million debit and credit cards. Michaels and Neiman Marcus also have been attacked by hackers in the past year. A data breach at Target in December compromised 40 million credit and debit cards. TJX Cos.s theft of 90 million records, disclosed in 2007, remains the largest data breach at a retailer. Chases assurances that it hasnt found any evidence of the personal data being misused shouldnt be misinterpreted as a reason to rest easy. The information still could be used in a variety of ways to rip off people in the months and years ahead. That means consumers and business owners need to be more vigilant than ever, making sure to pore over their financial statements each month for any sign of suspicious activity. People also should be more JPMorgan breach heightens security doubts See BREACH/ Page D4

Associated PressHONG KONG Shops in Hong Kong have closed and the local stock market has plunged but protesters are gambling their agitation for greater democracy will pay off by preserving institutions that made this former British colony a profitable asset to China. The impact on Hong Kongs key industries of finance and trade is limited so far. But economists warn Hong Kongs appeal to global companies might erode if they start to think protests will become more frequent or if they end in a violent crackdown. In the latest blow, mainland authorities on Wednesday suspended group tours to Hong Kong, cutting a critical source of revenue to its growing travel industry. Protests erupted after the communist Beijing government announced candidates in the first direct election of the territorys chief executive in 2017 would have to be approved by a panel dominated by business leaders allied with the mainland. That fueled unease Hong Kong is losing its special status despite a promise of a high degree of autonomy when the colony returned to Chinese sovereignty in 1997. Protesters also are frustrated at the growing income gap between ordinary people and a wealthy elite. I hope that the Hong Kong people could understand that sometimes we need short-term disturbances to draw attention from the government to solve some very serious, deep-seated problems with society, said Chan Kin-man, an organizer of the pro-democracy movement Occupy Central with Love and Peace, in an interview. Without a fair system, the election system, I dont think we can have long-term harmony, he said. Packed with skyscrapers and shopping malls, Hong Kong has thrived as a trading port and service provider as China grew to become the worlds No. 2 economy. But that prosperity depends on an independent, Western-style legal system and civil liberties Beijing promised to preserve through 2047. This territory of 7 million serves as a jumping-off point for mainland companies, many of them stateowned, to do business in global markets. The strong reputation of its regulatory and legal systems have helped them raise billions of dollars through its stock market from foreign investors. Business also might be hurt if Beijings response to the protest erodes rule of law, transparency and the freedoms that make Hong Kong a global center, said Tony Nash, a vice president at Delta Economics. It is that infrastructure that makes Hong Kong exceptional, he said. Tens of thousands of protesters have camped out in shopping and business districts for nearly a week. A two-day holiday on Wednesday and Thursday brought more residents into the streets to show solidarity with younger protesters. I dont worry about the economy, said Goria Ho, a 39-year-old administrator. I think democratic reform is more important than the economy now. Some schools and businesses have closed. But demonstrators cleared lanes for emergency vehicles to get through, cleaned up and sorted rubbish for recycling and avoided rowdy behavior. The local stock market benchmark, the Hang Seng index, has tumbled more than 9 percent since hitting a six-month peak in September. Banks closed 44 branches due to the protests, according to the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, the territorys central bank. It issued a statement assuring investors financial markets were operating normally. Business and investors are increasingly building in higher operational risks, fearing that future protests could escalate and turn more frequent, said Citigroup economist Adrienne Lui in a report. A question for investors is whether the territory can resolve its political issues so that we have a government that commands basic popular consent to implement economic and structural policies, said Andrew Colquhoun, head of AsiaPacific ratings for the Fitch ratings agency, in a report. Hong Kongs growing tourist trade relies on mainland visitors, and this weeks National Day holiday is one of the biggest shopping periods of the year. Last year, Hong Kong saw 41 million visitors from China. Thats a very big part of the economy so it will have an impact, even if its just for several weeks, said Rajiv Biswas, an economist for IHS in Singapore. Some local residents expressed consternation over protesters rejection of calls by Leung and other officials to quiet down and go home. But many were sympathetic, judging from the piles of donated water, umbrellas and other provisions in protest areas. The movement may affect the economy a bit, but not too much, said Pierre Wong, 36, who works in information technology. From an outsider perspective, the movement seems chaotic, but weve been fighting for democracy for a long time, said Wong. Its time for a change.D4SUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEBUSINESS 000J7JP Sponsorship and Vendor Opportunities Still Available is, it doesnt work that way.

It means that a living trust has been established, but you can revoke it at your pleasure. Whether or not this is a viable approach for you is another matter. I have talked to several people who assure me that its a generally good notion.

Building seawalls to protect from an encroaching sea, an approach that has seen limited success in places like California, has been one response on the island of Barbados. But in many cases, scientists say allowing shores to retreat or bolstering beaches with vegetation and restoring wetlands could be smarter. Last year, Cuba razed seaside buildings to restore shorelines to something approaching its natural state. For many beaches, adaptation measures such as bringing in sand and creating seawalls will only slow the inevitable, and at a significant and continual financial cost, said Jason Spensley of the U.N. Climate Technology Center and Network. Environmental experts and civil planners say leaders across the region need to adapt for the long term. City developers could adjust how they zone, improve enforcement of marine regulations and better plan water systems, for example. Beachfront developers could be encouraged to protect dunes and anchoring vegetation such as seagrasses, better manage coastal runoff pollution and push construction farther back from the sea. We just dont seem to be prepared to do any of it. Its as if we do not see what Negril has become, what the dangers to its future are, said Diana McCaulay, CEO of the nonprofit Jamaica Environment Trust. But Shelia McDonaldMiller, program manager for the governments breakwater project, said she is confident the offshore structures of boulders will slow Negrils erosion. She expects construction to start next year. Simon Mitchell, a geologist at the islands University of the West Indies, says governments need to think further ahead. In low-lying Negril, for example, there is no doubt that hotels perched along the beach will be deluged in coming decades, he said. We need to be looking 50 years into the future, he said. We cant keep going into places with pristine beaches, immediately put in hotels and then end up with the same problem in 10 years time because those beaches are eroding away.

You have to be paranoid now. You cant slack off, Litan said. There is no such thing as data confidentiality anymore. Everything is out there. Jamie Dimon, the banks CEO, said in this years annual report that despite spending millions on cybersecurity, JPMorgan remained worried about the threat of attacks. By the end of this year, the bank estimates that it will be spending about $250 million annually on cybersecurity and employing 1,000 people in the area. In August, the FBI said that it was working with the Secret Service to determine the scope of recent cyber attacks against several American financial institutions. Last month, JPMorgan began notifying customers that it would reissue credit or debit cards in the wake of the data breach at Home Depot. Wexler said the bank doesnt plan to reissue cards as a result of the breach of its servers, noting that customer account information was not stolen.

Associated PressWASHINGTON U.S. construction spending fell in August, the second decline in the past three months, with housing, non-residential and government projects all showing weakness. Construction spending dropped a seasonally adjusted 0.8 percent after a 1.2 percent increase in July, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday. The July increase followed a 1.6 percent June decline. The weakness was apparent in all sectors. Housing construction declined 0.1 percent, reflecting a big drop in spending on remodeling. Non-residential construction fell 1.4 percent while spending on government projects dropped 0.9 percent. In addition to the August decline, the government revised lower its estimates for activity in the previous two months. While this could call into question expectations that building activity will support economic growth in the second half of the year, economists at Barclays said they were leaving their forecast for third quarter growth unchanged at 3 percent. Barclays economist Michael Grapen said while the report signaled a softer start to the third quarter, he was still encouraged with gains shown in single-family and apartment construction. Overall construction spending totaled $960.96 billion at a seasonally adjusted annual rate in August, 5 percent higher than a year ago. Spending on housing totaled $351.7 billion at an annual rate in August, 3.7 percent higher than a year ago. The August decline versus July reflected a big drop in home remodeling work which offset small Construction spending declined in August Commerce Dept. also revises downward estimates from previous months See CONSTRUCTION / Page E7

Associated PressWASHINGTON Advertised as a path to an affordable retirement, federally insured reverse mortgages are showing signs of a rebound, drawing the scrutiny of regulators seeking to reduce historically high default rates that have cost the government billions. Industry analysts expect strong growth as the housing market improves, particularly in once hard-hit Sun Belt areas including Phoenix, Miami and San Diego, California, and aging Americans find value in growing old in their homes. They are also being boosted by high-appreciation, gentrifying neighborhoods in older cities such as New Yorks Brooklyn borough. Analysts say they expect continued interest as the leading edge of 78 million baby boomers approach 70, the age when a person typically begins to consider a reverse mortgage. A poll by Gallup in April found that 68 percent of Americans ages 50 to 64 said they were very or moderately worried about having enough money in retirement. A reverse mortgage allows borrowers 62 or older to receive a line of credit or lump-sum or monthly cash payments off the accumulated equity in their homes. The loan comes due when the borrower dies, moves or sells the house. The borrowers heirs are not liable if the loan balance exceeds the value of the home FHA covers the risk. Reverse mortgages have been pitched in slick TV ads featuring actor Henry Winkler and former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson. Philadelphia, where many families have lived in the same close-knit neighborhoods for generations, has ranked at the top for reverse mortgages awarded since 2011, according to an analysis of Federal Housing Administration data for The Associated Press by Reverse Market Insight, a California-based company. This year, Philadelphia was followed by Los Angeles, Washington and Chicago. After retiring from his newspaper ad sales job two years ago, Myles Griffin and his wife took out a reverse mortgage in May to supplement their Social Security income. The couple took out loans worth nearly $30,000 on the home they have lived in for 40 years in a working-class neighborhood of northeast Philadelphia to help pay off credit card bills and remodel their kitchen leaving open the option to tap into some of the remaining equity later if needed. We had a look at whether we wanted to move into a senior living facility, but that was more expensive, so we decided to stay with the house, Griffin said. We like our neighbors very much so this was the best way to go. Reverse mortgages havent always worked well. After the housing boom, many Americans took advantage of flexible lending terms to quickly draw large amounts of cash, later falling into financial trouble during the extended economic downturn. To cover projected losses of $70 billion over a 30-year period, FHA was forced last year to receive a $1.7 billion emergency cash infusion from the Treasury, due in large part to losses from reverse mortgages during the downturn. The total projected losses, the most recent available, dont reflect recent home-price increases, decreasing losses on its portfolio and other changes. Congress last year gave the agency new authority to tighten lending rules. In the coming weeks, FHA, a division of the Housing and Urban Development Department, is expected to finalize its proposed rule requiring loan applicants to undergo a detailed financial assessment. Its aimed at reducing a current default rate of 10 percent, roughly double the level of regular mortgages. The agency also has limited the amount of upfront payments a borrower can receive and recently reissued stern guidance to lenders to curtail deceptive marketing of reverse mortgages. LEEREICH Associated PressThe edges of woods in eastern North America are occasionally redolent with a sweet aroma reminiscent of jasmine. Wild grapes, dangling in ripe clusters from low-hanging vines, are what perfume the air. That scent begs a taste which you quickly discover pales by comparison with the perfume. Wild grapes are downright sour. Now go to your grocers shelf and take a deep whiff of the grapes there. Hardly a hint of aroma, unless the grapes happen to be Concord, a commercial variety that captures the essence of our wild grapes. And Concords berries are much larger and sweeter that their wild counterparts.Foxy grapesConcord is not the only grape variety that captures that unique aroma known as foxiness of wild grapes. But it is the most common one. With its tough skin that slips off to release a layer of sweetness, its jellied flesh and its foxy flavor, Concord is the archetypal American grape. Contrast it with Thompson Seedless, whose mild flavor, sweetness, and crunchy flesh are characteristic of European, or vinifera, grapes. No one is quite sure how the strong flavor of grapes like Concord came to be called foxy.

Associated PressWASHINGTON U.S. home prices in July increased at the slowest pace in 20 months, reflecting sluggish sales and a greater supply of houses for sale. The Standard & Poors/CaseShiller 20-city home price index rose 6.7 percent in July from 12 months earlier. Thats down from an 8.1 percent gain in June and the smallest increase since November 2012. Sales of existing homes have been weak for most of this year. They picked up over the summer but then fell in August and are 5.3 percent lower than a year ago. The slowdown has occurred partly because investors are pulling back from the housing market. Meanwhile, many would-be buyers are unable to obtain a mortgage, particularly firsttime buyers. Nineteen of the 20 cities in the index reported lower annual gains than in June. And a new broader index of nationwide home prices compiled by S&P rose just 5.6 percent. The Case-Shiller 20-city index covers roughly half of U.S. homes. The index measures prices compared with those in January 2000 and creates a three-month moving average. The July figures are the latest available. Even cities that have seen the biggest price gains are cooling off. Las Vegas 12.8 percent price increase from a year ago was the highest of the 20 cities tracked by CaseShiller. But thats down from a nearly 30 percent jump last year. The second-largest increase was in Miami, where home prices rose 11 percent from a year earlier, and the third-largest was in San Francisco, with a 10.3 percent climb. Nineteen of the 20 cities reported higher prices in July from June. Costs fell 0.4 percent in San Francisco that month. A larger number of homes for sale is helping slow price gains. Last fall, bidding wars emerged in many cities as buyers chased after an unusually low housing inventory. There are 2.3 million homes on the market nationwide, according to the National Association of Realtors. Thats about 4.5 percent higher than a year ago. In many states, the supply growth has been bigger. And unlike earlier in the recovery, they arent dependent on foreclosures. More homes are being listed for sale by regular homeowners, many of whom were likely drawn into the market by last years big price increases. The number of homes for sale has jumped 46 percent in Nevada, according to Michelle Meyer, an economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

signified a certain earthy aroma, or it might be that fox grapes were called that because foxes enjoyed them. The chemical responsible for the aroma methyl anthranilate is also found in such fragrant flowers as black locust, tuberose, orange and, yes, jasmine. Commercially, it has been used as a natural bird repellent. And yes, the birds are leaving my Concord grapes alone. The man we have to thank for Concord grapes is Ephraim Bull, a retiring soul who resided in Concord, Massachusetts, from his birth in 1805 until his death in 1895. He planted the seed that was to become Concord in 1843; the vine bore its first fruits in 1849. That fruit was exhibited before the Massachusetts Horticultural Society in 1852, was introduced by a nursery in 1854. The rest is history. By 1865, Concord was awarded a prize by the American Institute of the City of New York as the best grape for general cultivation. Horace Greeley, donor of the prize, declared Concord the grape for the millions. And planted by the millions it was. Among Concords qualities is its adaptability to varying soils and climates. Youll find its vines growing in almost every state, even California, where European grapes thrive. For that matter, youll even find Concord planted in Europe, as a backyard variety. And while we may poohpooh those sweet wines made from Concord, they are popular in Italy even though, or perhaps because, it can be illegal there to sell Fragolino, as wines made from American-type grapes are called. Concord and some other American grapes got a foothold in Europe after diseases and insects almost wiped out the European grape industry. These pests actually came from here, hitch-hiking over on American grapes that were being tried out in Europe beginning about the middle of the 19th century. This highlights another quality of Concord: its relative resistance to insect and disease pests. Add to this list of qualities its relatively late blossoms, rarely nipped by late spring frosts; the fruits ability to hang well, and the rich, deep color the berries develop. Its true some people just dont like that foxy flavor. But for an adaptable, flavorful and useful grape, plant Concord. Eat the fruit fresh, squeeze it into juice, ferment it into wine. Let the ripening berries perfume the air in your backyard. You will have no trouble finding a place to buy a Concord vine, for its still one of the most widely sold grape varieties. handy for travel or car errands. And at home, carpeted or upholstered portable pet stairs can be positioned wherever a pet needs to go up or down. Look for ones that sit firmly on the ground, with a good wide stair base. Many come in a range of materials to coordinate with your decor. (www.wayfair.com) Pets with hip or back problems might appreciate having their food bowl raised up off the floor. Raised dishes in frames made of metal, wood, plastic or ceramic ease the strain on aging necks. Some can be height-adjusted.Better boxesAging cats might need bigger litter boxes or ones with lower sides for better access and aim, says Dr. Louise Murray, vice president of the ASPCA Animal Hospital in New York City. Lucky Champ, for instance, has a roomy one with a low entry ramp. (www.luckychamp.com) Shojai suggests a plastic, lowsided, shirt-box storage container. And add an extra potty or two; ensure at least one is on each side of the house or floor. You can find dog and cat diaper pants and pads at www.senior petproducts.com if incontinence is a problem.Body temperatureHeating pads and beds soothe achy arthritis and help older pets become more flexible, says Shojai. A heating pad slipped underneath the small pets regular bed or blanket may do the trick. The Lectro Kennel electric pad can be temperature adjusted. (www.petco.com) If overheating is the issue, consider the Cool Pet Pad. Its gel-filled and activated by the animals weight, staying cool for three to four hours. You can place it in a crate or car, on the floor, or on a bed to help ease overheating or inflammation. (www.allmodern.com)Sleep tightMemory-foam mattresses and pillows have been a boon to pets. Six inches of foam covered in microfiber and fleece makes a cozy snooze spot in the Great Paw Triple Support Orthopedic Pillow. (www.allmodern.com) Kohls stocks the Happy Hounds dog bed, capacious enough for large breeds but easily accommodating two or three diminutive friends on a soft, Sherpa-fleece-covered mattress. (www.kohls.com) For pets having trouble climbing onto anything, including a thick pet bed, a lower-to-the-floor sleep zone may be the answer. Homegoods has less dense yet still comfy dog beds in faux furs. (www.homegoods.com)Keep them sippingOlder pets especially cats dont always drink as much water as they should. Pet water fountains that aerate the water make it taste better and encourage water intake, Shojai says. Major pet chains stock several varieties.Cruise controlOlder pets can still enjoy fresh-air outings with the help of some clever transport devices. Shojai says a big beach towel can be employed as a sling to help a dog from a prone position, but she also likes the range of available locomotion assists. Adjustable wheelchairs and body harnesses are available at www.k9carts.com.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday the nationwide average for a 30-year loan slipped to 4.19 percent from 4.20 percent last week. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, was unchanged at 3.36 percent. The 30-year rate is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Federal Reserve has been trimming its monthly bond purchases, which are intended to keep longterm borrowing rates low. The purchases are set to end next month. Mortgage rates often follow the yield on the 10-year Treasury note. The 10-year note traded at 2.41 percent at midday Thursday, down sharply from 2.57 percent a week earlier. The decline in the 30-year rate comes after sales of existing homes fell in August. Investors retreated from real estate and first-time buyers remained scarce, according to a report last week from the National Association of Realtors. And fewer Americans signed contracts to buy homes in August, suggesting that sluggish sales could continue. The Realtors group said Monday that its seasonally adjusted pending home sales index fell 1 percent. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage fell to 0.4 point from 0.5 point last week. The fee for a 15-year mortgage remained at 0.5 point. Watercolor is work of noted artist; old newspapers Dear John: More 40 years ago, I acquired a watercolor by Mahonri M. Young. It is 12 1/4 inches wide by 13 3/4 inches high. A friend recommended that I contact you to determine how to sell it and what it might be worth. S.H., Internet Dear S.H.: Mahonri Young was born in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1877 and lived until 1957. He was a sculptor, painter, and print maker. He worked in various styles including Impressionism, Realism, Naturalism, and the graphic arts. Young was a member of numerous art societies, including the American Watercolor Society, National Academy of Design, National Sculpture Society and more. His bronze sculptures sell for the highest prices. The watercolor you have would likely sell in the range of $1,000, perhaps more on a lucky day. Dear John: I had a gentleman ask me about the value of two vintage newspapers he had that are preserved in leather binders. I have attached pictures of them along with certificates and pictures of the binders. When he asked me, I thought of you first. D.M., Internet Dear D.M.: The N.C.S.A., Newspaper Collectors Society of America, produces a really great website. It is educational as well as just fun to surf through. It explains all the reasons for collecting newspapers and what influences dollar values. The site is www.historybuff.com The two newspapers the gentleman owns are low on the totem pole of collector interest and of very little dollar value. Dear John: I am sending you photos of two items recently purchased. The horn appears to be brass and it carries a sound. There are no dents just tarnish. The bicycle is 2 feet high and appears to be handmade. The attached tag states Sculpture, Lewk, Jim Bicycle. Any information that you cangive me would be greatly appreciated.

through traffic on weekends, says landscape designer and builder David Veron, owner of The Veron Company in Marlborough, Massachusetts. People want to stay home and make the most of their time there. Making outdoor spaces usable in chillier months, Veron says, requires only that they are comfortable (i.e. warm), safe and pleasing to the eye. Features that lend themselves to an activity cooking in an outdoor pizza oven, sipping wine next to an outdoor fireplace or watching the kids play, for instance are a plus. If youre warm and the space is visually appealing, thats great. But what are you doing out there? Veron says. You could easily spend tens (even hundreds) of thousands of dollars on such projects how about that three-sided kitchen with heated floors and ceilings? but there are also cost-efficient ways to make outdoor space usable year-round. If youre a hockey fan, putting in a nice ice rink (which costs around $400) and fire pit (which start at about $500), is absolutely a home run, Veron says. Youve just bought another season. Mike Marler, general manager of Outdoor Solutions, a Jackson, Mississippi-area company that specializes in creating outdoor living areas, says there are also ways to warm up structures. Most of the structures his company builds include some sort of roof or walls pavilions, pool houses or outdoor kitchens, for example. Installing roll-up shutter or louvered doors helps keep the chill out, especially in a relatively mild place like Mississippi, where winter temperatures rarely dip below the 20-degree mark. Were not trying to climatecontrol those spaces as much as make them comfortable, he says. And when building a new space, features that make it usable in winter in-floor heat, lighting, fireplaces should be included from the get-go. You have to design it for summer first, Veron says. But then you look at how we can take that outdoor space and try to stretch it into three or four seasons. And you dont need a lot of acreage. Veron says hes created winter-worthy spaces in small backyards that abut neighbors, as well as full-blown, heated kitchens along snowmobile or ski trails. Its about the experience, he says. Thats what Vanderwiel has been enjoying since installing her fire pit three years ago. We really enjoy our time, and find gazing into the fire, the smell of the burning fire and the crackling sounds very relaxing, she says. We are very happy. gains in single-family construction and apartment construction. Spending on non-residential projects totaled $333.3 billion, 9.2 percent higher than a year ago. In August, spending on office buildings, shopping centers and hospital construction all declined from July. Government building projects totaled $253.4 billion, just 1.9 percent higher than a year ago. Construction activity at all levels of government has been held back by tight budgets. For August, state and local construction spending was down 0.9 percent versus July while federal projects dropped 1.9 percent. The overall economy went into reverse in the first three months of the year, shrinking at an annual rate of 2.1 percent, in part because of weakness in construction. Housing construction was contracting at a 5.3 percent rate in the first quarter, one of a number of sectors that were hurt by the unusually severe winter. The economy rebounded in the April-June quarter, growing at an annual rate of 4.6 percent, the best showing in more than two years. Part of the rebound reflected a recovery in residential construction, which grew at an annual rate of 8.8 percent in the spring, the first positive growth after two quarters of declines. Economists are hoping that construction will continue to grow in the July-September quarter and that will provide support for the overall economy. Economists are forecasting growth of around 3 percent in the gross domestic product for the third quarter but the recent weakness in construction spending could cause revisions in those estimates.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014E7 E10SUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE C ARL M ANUCCI 352-302-9787 S USAN M ULLEN 352-422-2133 000JFWI Terms 6 Months or More Social Membership included with all Rentals Terra Vista & Brentwood Rentals!

There is no specific collector interest. Potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can. The metal sculpture is by Jim Lewk. He is a metal sculptor living in Miami and still producing interesting works in non-metallic metal. Most of his works depicting a high wheel bicycle have a male rider holding balloons made of glass. I think your piece is missing the male rider. For more information, Google Jim Lewk, sculptor. Dear John: I really enjoy listening to your show and reading the column. My mother recently gave me two pieces of Fenton glass and I was wondering if there were any resources, as in collectors groups or books that I could use, to find out more about them. One is a white hobnail barbers bottle without a stopper and the other is a small aqua hobnail vase. I have attached photos for you to see. M.L., Internet Dear M.L.: Barbers bottles have been a category of collecting for decades. Fenton barbers bottles like the one you have were produced in large quantities, so it is likely you can find a replacement stopper. Replacements Ltd. in Greensboro, North Carolina may have one. The phone number is 1-800-REPLACE (737-5223). The website for the Fenton Glass Collectors Club is www.fentonartglass.com/clubs.

Each pretty flower blooms for only a day, but is followed by others in succession. The genus has about 300 species, mostly twining vines and shrubs from tropical and warm temperate climates. A staple food, sweet potato Ipomoea batatasoriginated in Central America and was likely a canoe plant taken across the Caribbean and Pacific by voyagers. This perennial climbing vine has either white or orange-fleshed nutritious tubers. Funnelshaped flowers of five fused segments have lavender to purple tubes, which are darker on the inside. Leaves are light green, with three lobes. Edges can be toothed in some cultivated varieties. One delicate-looking vine twining over my crape myrtle trees has fernlike leaves with nine to 19 alternate linear leaflets that resemble those of cypress trees hence its common name, Cypress Vine. Its unique scientific binomial is Ipomoea quamoclit. Originally from tropical South and Central America, it thrives in cold zones 8-12. Cypress Vine flowers are deep crimson red with five distinct, starshaped petal tips that fuse into a half-inch long tube. The tube is pale pink to white. From the flower tube, five fine filaments tipped with white pollen anthers protrude around a longer style topped with a white stigma. Nectar feeders carry pollen from flower to flower to fertilize the female stigma. Seeds develop in the ovary below the style. As cypress vine is frost-tender, it is an annual in north central Florida. Seeds overwinter to germinate readily next spring. Scarlet Morning Glory, Ipomoea coccinea,a tropical flowering vine, is naturalized throughout Florida and much of the lower 48 states. It has scarlet-orange tubular flowers from late summer through fall. In Florida, it intertwines with Cypress Vine along roadsides, fencelines and in untended naturalistic gardens like mine. Frost kills both plants in central Florida. Seeds overwinter and readily sprout from spring to fall. Scarlet Morning Glory leaves are light green on top, paler underneath, with smooth edges. The variable leaf has three distinct pointed lobes like a maple leaf, sometimes with two more points at the sides of the bottom rounded lobes. Flowers are open at dawn but often close up by afternoon. The fivetipped corolla, about a half-inch diameter, tapers into an inch-long tube. Nectar at the bottom attracts Rubythroated Hummingbirds and butterflies. A forth pan-tropical vine, zones 10-12, popular in Florida gardens is Beach Morning Glory also called Railroad Vine, I. pescaprae.It usually grows prostrate along the ground, reaching 30 feet from the original central root. It often sends down roots at the leaf nodes. Alternate along the stems, leaves are large and leathery, light green, with two distinctive rounded lobes and smooth margins. Flowers grow on stems from the leaf axils. Each spectacular flower is bright pinkish-purple and can be more than three inches in diameter. The center tube is usually white, blushed pollen-yellow toward the bottom. This Florida native species likes well-drained soil of beaches, sand dunes and sandhill gardens. Frosttender, it will die after a hard freeze in north central Florida. Some roots may survive in protected microclimates to re-sprout in spring. Cuttings can be rooted and grown indoors over winter for planting once danger of the last frost passes in March. A few self-sown seeds may overwinter and sprout in spring. Store dry seeds in a paper envelope for winter. Gently file them and soak overnight to aid hydration and germination in spring.Ipomoeavines are a welcome addition to naturalistic gardens and feed some of the creatures that share Florida with us.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant.

through traffic on weekends, says landscape designer and builder David Veron, owner of The Veron Company in Marlborough, Massachusetts. People want to stay home and make the most of their time there. Making outdoor spaces usable in chillier months, Veron says, requires only that they are comfortable (i.e. warm), safe and pleasing to the eye. Features that lend themselves to an activity cooking in an outdoor pizza oven, sipping wine next to an outdoor fireplace or watching the kids play, for instance are a plus. If youre warm and the space is visually appealing, thats great. But what are you doing out there? Veron says. You could easily spend tens (even hundreds) of thousands of dollars on such projects how about that three-sided kitchen with heated floors and ceilings? but there are also cost-efficient ways to make outdoor space usable year-round. If youre a hockey fan, putting in a nice ice rink (which costs around $400) and fire pit (which start at about $500), is absolutely a home run, Veron says. Youve just bought another season. Mike Marler, general manager of Outdoor Solutions, a Jackson, Mississippi-area company that specializes in creating outdoor living areas, says there are also ways to warm up structures. Most of the structures his company builds include some sort of roof or walls pavilions, pool houses or outdoor kitchens, for example. Installing roll-up shutter or louvered doors helps keep the chill out, especially in a relatively mild place like Mississippi, where winter temperatures rarely dip below the 20-degree mark. Were not trying to climatecontrol those spaces as much as make them comfortable, he says. And when building a new space, features that make it usable in winter in-floor heat, lighting, fireplaces should be included from the get-go. You have to design it for summer first, Veron says. But then you look at how we can take that outdoor space and try to stretch it into three or four seasons. And you dont need a lot of acreage. Veron says hes created winter-worthy spaces in small backyards that abut neighbors, as well as full-blown, heated kitchens along snowmobile or ski trails. Its about the experience, he says. Thats what Vanderwiel has been enjoying since installing her fire pit three years ago. We really enjoy our time, and find gazing into the fire, the smell of the burning fire and the crackling sounds very relaxing, she says. We are very happy. gains in single-family construction and apartment construction. Spending on non-residential projects totaled $333.3 billion, 9.2 percent higher than a year ago. In August, spending on office buildings, shopping centers and hospital construction all declined from July. Government building projects totaled $253.4 billion, just 1.9 percent higher than a year ago. Construction activity at all levels of government has been held back by tight budgets. For August, state and local construction spending was down 0.9 percent versus July while federal projects dropped 1.9 percent. The overall economy went into reverse in the first three months of the year, shrinking at an annual rate of 2.1 percent, in part because of weakness in construction. Housing construction was contracting at a 5.3 percent rate in the first quarter, one of a number of sectors that were hurt by the unusually severe winter. The economy rebounded in the April-June quarter, growing at an annual rate of 4.6 percent, the best showing in more than two years. Part of the rebound reflected a recovery in residential construction, which grew at an annual rate of 8.8 percent in the spring, the first positive growth after two quarters of declines. Economists are hoping that construction will continue to grow in the July-September quarter and that will provide support for the overall economy. Economists are forecasting growth of around 3 percent in the gross domestic product for the third quarter but the recent weakness in construction spending could cause revisions in those estimates.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014E7 E10SUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE C ARL M ANUCCI 352-302-9787 S USAN M ULLEN 352-422-2133 000JFWI Terms 6 Months or More Social Membership included with all Rentals Terra Vista & Brentwood Rentals!

He is a metal sculptor living in Miami and still producing interesting works in non-metallic metal. Most of his works depicting a high wheel bicycle have a male rider holding balloons made of glass. I think your piece is missing the male rider. For more information, Google Jim Lewk, sculptor. Dear John: I really enjoy listening to your show and reading the column. My mother recently gave me two pieces of Fenton glass and I was wondering if there were any resources, as in collectors groups or books that I could use, to find out more about them. One is a white hobnail barbers bottle without a stopper and the other is a small aqua hobnail vase. I have attached photos for you to see. M.L., Internet Dear M.L.: Barbers bottles have been a category of collecting for decades. Fenton barbers bottles like the one you have were produced in large quantities, so it is likely you can find a replacement stopper. Replacements Ltd. in Greensboro, North Carolina may have one. The phone number is 1-800-REPLACE (737-5223). The website for the Fenton Glass Collectors Club is www.fentonartglass.com/clubs.

signified a certain earthy aroma, or it might be that fox grapes were called that because foxes enjoyed them. The chemical responsible for the aroma methyl anthranilate is also found in such fragrant flowers as black locust, tuberose, orange and, yes, jasmine. Commercially, it has been used as a natural bird repellent. And yes, the birds are leaving my Concord grapes alone. The man we have to thank for Concord grapes is Ephraim Bull, a retiring soul who resided in Concord, Massachusetts, from his birth in 1805 until his death in 1895. He planted the seed that was to become Concord in 1843; the vine bore its first fruits in 1849. That fruit was exhibited before the Massachusetts Horticultural Society in 1852, was introduced by a nursery in 1854. The rest is history. By 1865, Concord was awarded a prize by the American Institute of the City of New York as the best grape for general cultivation. Horace Greeley, donor of the prize, declared Concord the grape for the millions. And planted by the millions it was. Among Concords qualities is its adaptability to varying soils and climates. Youll find its vines growing in almost every state, even California, where European grapes thrive. For that matter, youll even find Concord planted in Europe, as a backyard variety. And while we may poohpooh those sweet wines made from Concord, they are popular in Italy even though, or perhaps because, it can be illegal there to sell Fragolino, as wines made from American-type grapes are called. Concord and some other American grapes got a foothold in Europe after diseases and insects almost wiped out the European grape industry. These pests actually came from here, hitch-hiking over on American grapes that were being tried out in Europe beginning about the middle of the 19th century. This highlights another quality of Concord: its relative resistance to insect and disease pests. Add to this list of qualities its relatively late blossoms, rarely nipped by late spring frosts; the fruits ability to hang well, and the rich, deep color the berries develop. Its true some people just dont like that foxy flavor. But for an adaptable, flavorful and useful grape, plant Concord. Eat the fruit fresh, squeeze it into juice, ferment it into wine. Let the ripening berries perfume the air in your backyard. You will have no trouble finding a place to buy a Concord vine, for its still one of the most widely sold grape varieties. handy for travel or car errands.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday the nationwide average for a 30-year loan slipped to 4.19 percent from 4.20 percent last week. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, was unchanged at 3.36 percent. The 30-year rate is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Federal Reserve has been trimming its monthly bond purchases, which are intended to keep longterm borrowing rates low. The purchases are set to end next month. Mortgage rates often follow the yield on the 10-year Treasury note. The 10-year note traded at 2.41 percent at midday Thursday, down sharply from 2.57 percent a week earlier. The decline in the 30-year rate comes after sales of existing homes fell in August. Investors retreated from real estate and first-time buyers remained scarce, according to a report last week from the National Association of Realtors. And fewer Americans signed contracts to buy homes in August, suggesting that sluggish sales could continue. The Realtors group said Monday that its seasonally adjusted pending home sales index fell 1 percent. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage fell to 0.4 point from 0.5 point last week. The fee for a 15-year mortgage remained at 0.5 point. Watercolor is work of noted artist; old newspapers Dear John: More 40 years ago, I acquired a watercolor by Mahonri M. Young. It is 12 1/4 inches wide by 13 3/4 inches high. A friend recommended that I contact you to determine how to sell it and what it might be worth. S.H., Internet Dear S.H.: Mahonri Young was born in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1877 and lived until 1957. He was a sculptor, painter, and print maker. He worked in various styles including Impressionism, Realism, Naturalism, and the graphic arts. Young was a member of numerous art societies, including the American Watercolor Society, National Academy of Design, National Sculpture Society and more. His bronze sculptures sell for the highest prices. The watercolor you have would likely sell in the range of $1,000, perhaps more on a lucky day. Dear John: I had a gentleman ask me about the value of two vintage newspapers he had that are preserved in leather binders. I have attached pictures of them along with certificates and pictures of the binders. When he asked me, I thought of you first. D.M., Internet Dear D.M.: The N.C.S.A., Newspaper Collectors Society of America, produces a really great website. It is educational as well as just fun to surf through. It explains all the reasons for collecting newspapers and what influences dollar values. The site is www.historybuff.com The two newspapers the gentleman owns are low on the totem pole of collector interest and of very little dollar value. Dear John: I am sending you photos of two items recently purchased. The horn appears to be brass and it carries a sound. There are no dents just tarnish. The bicycle is 2 feet high and appears to be handmade. The attached tag states Sculpture, Lewk, Jim Bicycle. Any information that you cangive me would be greatly appreciated.

Associated PressWASHINGTON U.S. home prices in July increased at the slowest pace in 20 months, reflecting sluggish sales and a greater supply of houses for sale. The Standard & Poors/CaseShiller 20-city home price index rose 6.7 percent in July from 12 months earlier. Thats down from an 8.1 percent gain in June and the smallest increase since November 2012. Sales of existing homes have been weak for most of this year. They picked up over the summer but then fell in August and are 5.3 percent lower than a year ago. The slowdown has occurred partly because investors are pulling back from the housing market. Meanwhile, many would-be buyers are unable to obtain a mortgage, particularly firsttime buyers. Nineteen of the 20 cities in the index reported lower annual gains than in June. And a new broader index of nationwide home prices compiled by S&P rose just 5.6 percent. The Case-Shiller 20-city index covers roughly half of U.S. homes. The index measures prices compared with those in January 2000 and creates a three-month moving average. The July figures are the latest available. Even cities that have seen the biggest price gains are cooling off. Las Vegas 12.8 percent price increase from a year ago was the highest of the 20 cities tracked by CaseShiller. But thats down from a nearly 30 percent jump last year. The second-largest increase was in Miami, where home prices rose 11 percent from a year earlier, and the third-largest was in San Francisco, with a 10.3 percent climb. Nineteen of the 20 cities reported higher prices in July from June. Costs fell 0.4 percent in San Francisco that month. A larger number of homes for sale is helping slow price gains. Last fall, bidding wars emerged in many cities as buyers chased after an unusually low housing inventory. There are 2.3 million homes on the market nationwide, according to the National Association of Realtors. Thats about 4.5 percent higher than a year ago. In many states, the supply growth has been bigger. And unlike earlier in the recovery, they arent dependent on foreclosures. More homes are being listed for sale by regular homeowners, many of whom were likely drawn into the market by last years big price increases. The number of homes for sale has jumped 46 percent in Nevada, according to Michelle Meyer, an economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. It has risen 38 percent in California and 33 percent in Arizona. That has helped slow price gains in those markets. Meyer forecasts annual price increases will decelerate to 3.9 percent by the end of the year.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014E5 E12SUNDAY, OCTOBER5, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE See Vi rtual Tours @ www .resalehomes4u.com GAIL COOPER Always There For You REALTY Multimillion Dollar Realtor (352) 634-4346 Office : (352) 382-1700 000JGRQ 10906 W.

Cats love high spots to snooze and lounge, but may not be able to manage the leap. Move a chair or even a cardboard box close to a window or bed to give them a leg up. Ramps and stairs make it easier for older pets to access beds, sofas, countertops and window seats. There are folding, carpeted ramps that can go in the car or be easily stored.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Advertised as a path to an affordable retirement, federally insured reverse mortgages are showing signs of a rebound, drawing the scrutiny of regulators seeking to reduce historically high default rates that have cost the government billions. Industry analysts expect strong growth as the housing market improves, particularly in once hard-hit Sun Belt areas including Phoenix, Miami and San Diego, California, and aging Americans find value in growing old in their homes. They are also being boosted by high-appreciation, gentrifying neighborhoods in older cities such as New Yorks Brooklyn borough. Analysts say they expect continued interest as the leading edge of 78 million baby boomers approach 70, the age when a person typically begins to consider a reverse mortgage. A poll by Gallup in April found that 68 percent of Americans ages 50 to 64 said they were very or moderately worried about having enough money in retirement. A reverse mortgage allows borrowers 62 or older to receive a line of credit or lump-sum or monthly cash payments off the accumulated equity in their homes. The loan comes due when the borrower dies, moves or sells the house. The borrowers heirs are not liable if the loan balance exceeds the value of the home FHA covers the risk. Reverse mortgages have been pitched in slick TV ads featuring actor Henry Winkler and former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson. Philadelphia, where many families have lived in the same close-knit neighborhoods for generations, has ranked at the top for reverse mortgages awarded since 2011, according to an analysis of Federal Housing Administration data for The Associated Press by Reverse Market Insight, a California-based company. This year, Philadelphia was followed by Los Angeles, Washington and Chicago. After retiring from his newspaper ad sales job two years ago, Myles Griffin and his wife took out a reverse mortgage in May to supplement their Social Security income. The couple took out loans worth nearly $30,000 on the home they have lived in for 40 years in a working-class neighborhood of northeast Philadelphia to help pay off credit card bills and remodel their kitchen leaving open the option to tap into some of the remaining equity later if needed. We had a look at whether we wanted to move into a senior living facility, but that was more expensive, so we decided to stay with the house, Griffin said. We like our neighbors very much so this was the best way to go. Reverse mortgages havent always worked well. After the housing boom, many Americans took advantage of flexible lending terms to quickly draw large amounts of cash, later falling into financial trouble during the extended economic downturn. To cover projected losses of $70 billion over a 30-year period, FHA was forced last year to receive a $1.7 billion emergency cash infusion from the Treasury, due in large part to losses from reverse mortgages during the downturn. The total projected losses, the most recent available, dont reflect recent home-price increases, decreasing losses on its portfolio and other changes. Congress last year gave the agency new authority to tighten lending rules. In the coming weeks, FHA, a division of the Housing and Urban Development Department, is expected to finalize its proposed rule requiring loan applicants to undergo a detailed financial assessment. Its aimed at reducing a current default rate of 10 percent, roughly double the level of regular mortgages. The agency also has limited the amount of upfront payments a borrower can receive and recently reissued stern guidance to lenders to curtail deceptive marketing of reverse mortgages. LEEREICH Associated PressThe edges of woods in eastern North America are occasionally redolent with a sweet aroma reminiscent of jasmine. Wild grapes, dangling in ripe clusters from low-hanging vines, are what perfume the air. That scent begs a taste which you quickly discover pales by comparison with the perfume. Wild grapes are downright sour. Now go to your grocers shelf and take a deep whiff of the grapes there. Hardly a hint of aroma, unless the grapes happen to be Concord, a commercial variety that captures the essence of our wild grapes. And Concords berries are much larger and sweeter that their wild counterparts.Foxy grapesConcord is not the only grape variety that captures that unique aroma known as foxiness of wild grapes. But it is the most common one. With its tough skin that slips off to release a layer of sweetness, its jellied flesh and its foxy flavor, Concord is the archetypal American grape. Contrast it with Thompson Seedless, whose mild flavor, sweetness, and crunchy flesh are characteristic of European, or vinifera, grapes. No one is quite sure how the strong flavor of grapes like Concord came to be called foxy.

Real EstateDIGEST Douglas LindseyTropic Shores Realty. Ellie SuttonRE/MAX Realty One. David IvoryRE/MAX Realty One. Associated PressWASHINGTON U.S. construction spending fell in August, the second decline in the past three months, with housing, non-residential and government projects all showing weakness. Construction spending dropped a seasonally adjusted 0.8 percent after a 1.2 percent increase in July, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday. The July increase followed a 1.6 percent June decline. The weakness was apparent in all sectors. Housing construction declined 0.1 percent, reflecting a big drop in spending on remodeling. Non-residential construction fell 1.4 percent while spending on government projects dropped 0.9 percent. In addition to the August decline, the government revised lower its estimates for activity in the previous two months. While this could call into question expectations that building activity will support economic growth in the second half of the year, economists at Barclays said they were leaving their forecast for third quarter growth unchanged at 3 percent. Barclays economist Michael Grapen said while the report signaled a softer start to the third quarter, he was still encouraged with gains shown in single-family and apartment construction. Overall construction spending totaled $960.96 billion at a seasonally adjusted annual rate in August, 5 percent higher than a year ago. Spending on housing totaled $351.7 billion at an annual rate in August, 3.7 percent higher than a year ago. The August decline versus July reflected a big drop in home remodeling work which offset small Construction spending declined in August Commerce Dept. also revises downward estimates from previous months See CONSTRUCTION / Page E7
