Thats even how she signs her correspondences as vice president branch area manager at Brannen Bank where she has worked for 32 years: Carol Recanzone Bold and Sassy. Shes not shy about talking about her prosthetic breast, her boob in a box as she calls it, or about not having hair. Heres a Hallmark moment for you, she said. Its well known that Im a slob when I eat, and I always wear a bib. I even had a wedding bib when I got married. So, heres my Hallmark moment: my grandson and I eating together wearing bibs, both with bald heads. Having gone through surgery, gone through chemo, still going through radiation every day, she laughs, and says she has to in order to get through it. But she also cries. This is her second go-around with breast cancer. This time its more aggressive. This time she lost her entire breast and not just a part of it. Shes still upbeat and positive, but this time, shes also angry. When youre told you have cancer, you go through stages, Recanzone said. Even before that, you procrastinate. You put off going to the doctor. Life is busy; youre taking care of your family, you dont think about yourself. My sister got sick in 2008 and died of ovarian cancer within 10 weeks. She was 57. When your sister dies, its MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleCarol Recanzone receives radiation treatment at Robert Boissoneault Oncology Institute.

Recanzone is dealing with her second bout of breast cancer, yet lives life with a positive spirit. Local banker keeps a positive attitude despite a second go-around with breast cancer See SURVIVOR/ Page A5 Study: Vitamin D helps in breast cancer survival PATFAHERTY Staff writerVarious studies have focused on the role of Vitamin D in the health and treatment of breast cancer survivors, and local cancer experts have their own views. A study out in March by the researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, suggests breast cancer patients with high levels of Vitamin D in their blood are twice as likely to survive the disease as women with low levels of this nutrient The study came out of previous studies by Dr. Cedric F. Garland, a professor in the Department of Family and Preventive Medicine, that showed low Vitamin D levels were linked to a high risk of premenopausal breast cancer. It appeared in the March issue of Anticancer Research. In the schools news release, Garland said that study prompted him to question the relationship between 25-hydroxyvitamin D, which is produced by the body from the ingestion of Vitamin D, and breast cancer survival rates. Vitamin D metabolites increase communication between cells by switching on a protein that blocks aggressive cell division, Garland said. As long as Vitamin D receptors are present, tumor growth is prevented and kept from expanding its blood supply. Vitamin D receptors are not lost until a tumor is very advanced. This is the reason for better survival Fear of recurrence always there after beating breast cancer Body changes a constant reminder of the diseaseERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerLisa Sperry knows herself better than anyone else does. She knew a biopsy was essential. She knew she had a rare form of breast cancer. And she knew that fighting for her life was her only choice. Her worst fears were discovered in 2006 after a scalloping trip. We had been scalloping, and I had red spots on my breast. I thought it was from being in a wet bathing suit, Sperry said. I used ointments like I would any rash, but it didnt work. Then I went to my sisters house, and she showed me a video about inflammatory breast cancer. After convincing the doctors of her findings, the 40-year-old Citrus High School 2003 Teacher of the Year heard the ringing diagnosis: inflammatory breast cancer, a rare and aggressive form of cancer. MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleCitrus High School ESE staffing specialist Lisa Sperry was diagnosed with cancer eight years ago. Following successful treatment, she has been cancer-free since.

The Tourist Development Tax is a local option tax levied by Citrus County at a current rate of 3 percent. This tax is levied on all short-term residential rental charges, which includes all residential rentals for a period of six months or less. Examples would be an apartment, bed and breakfast, campground/RV park, condo, cottage, hotel/motel, mobile home park, rooming house or single-family dwelling.

All members of the public are invited to attend and learn the taxcollection process. If you have any questions, email to adam.thomas@visit citrus.com, or call 352-6289305. It was the week of her 41st birthday. I was upset, but I was also thinking, Wow, this is a way to start my sons years in high school. I was worried, like any parent would be, about what was going to happen to my child if I am not here, Sperry said. She started treatment immediately and discovered that she inherited the gene BRCA2 positive from her father. A double mastectomy followed in March and concluded with daily radiation for weeks. Now, she is celebrating eight years as a survivor, but the fear of recurrence is a constant thought. I have a double birthday every year, Sperry said. But it is something that you think about every single day of your life. She is reminded of her life-altering diagnosis every time she looks at her body. I use to have to pluck my eyebrows regularly, Sperry said. Now, I draw them in, as they never came back completely. I have a vitamin deficiency that I have to take supplements for. I have dry mouth. I have dental issues from radiation and chemotherapy. And when lymph nodes are removed, the arm pit is shaped differently. Shaving there is different. But she is optimistic that she can overcome these daily challenges. After all, she beat cancer. You just figure out different ways to do everyday things, Sperry said. Positive thinking goes a long way. When she couldnt think positive, support was her medicine. Seek support whether it is professional or through others who have experienced it, Sperry said. You think you are strong to handle it. But what you experience not only affects you but those surrounding you.Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-563-5660, ext. 1334, or eworthington@ chronicleonline.com. CANCERContinued from Page A1 STATISTICS FROM THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY WEBSITE, www.cancer.org: Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death of women, behind lung cancer The chance that breast cancer will be the cause of death for a woman is one in 36, or a bout 3 percent. Death rates have declined since 1989, particularly for woman under 50. That is attrib uted to earlier screening and better treatment. There are more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S. The rate of women having mammograms increased from 29 percent in 1988 to 67 per cent in 2010. Breast cancer death rate dropped 34 percent since 1990, due to early detection and better tr eatment.

SIDIBE Staff writerOne of the Chroniclessignature annual events aimed at fighting cancer went off with aplomb over the weekend. Dubbed the night out with girls, the second Diva Night and Sassy Cups event was infused with a lot of sass Saturday night and the best bra was crowned by popular vote. Sassy Cups was designed to bring community members from various walks of life together through creative and whimsical decoration of bras. Proceeds from the fundraiser will be donated to the local cancer charity Citrus Aid Cancer Foundation. Voters chose from four categories of submitted designs and monikers ranging from the festive Passion of Mardi Gras which mimicked the masks worn during the festival to the whimsical Raise a Glass, which was adorned with grapes and a mini wine bottle. Voting fees were: $5, five votes; $10, 10 votes; $15, 20 votes; $20, 30 votes; and $25; 40 votes. The categories and winners were: Business: Waverley Florist, first place for Star Gazing For A Cure; the second and third place vote-getters were NAPAs Racing for the Cure and Passion of Mardi Gras by Jazzercise. Individual: Busty Peacock by Theresa Martinson. Nonprofit: First place, Simply Pink by the Rotary Club of Inverness and second place, Treasure Your Chest, Take The Test by the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce. Judges choice: Be A Super Hero In The Fight Against Cancer by Sisto Plastic Surgery. It was a great event and its for a great cause, said Michael Gaouette, coowner of Waverley Florist. It was a lot of fun and we wanted to get involved in the community, said Gaouette, who co-owns the business with his wife, Cheryl. Cheryl Gaouette, along with Linda Allen, Kelly Green and Elena Ruggiero, helped design the winning business bra.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com.

ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerScarves and hats often cover Donna Toscanos new head of hair. But it was only months ago that these head pieces joined her wardrobe. When I first went down to Moffitt (Cancer Center), I saw little hats and scarves in a basket. I wondered who they were for, Toscano said. Once I got into the chemo part and started losing my hair, I realized what they were for. Her stage 3 breast cancer journey began November 2013 when her husband noticed Toscanos breasts didnt look right. But she had had a mammogram every year since she was 50. She thought nothing off it until two weeks later, when he insisted there was a noticeable difference. On Nov. 15, 2013, I went to my gynecologist and he sent me to Citrus Diagnostics Center and they did a mammogram and an ultrasound. They immediately called another doctor at Seven Rivers hospital, she explained. A biopsy was done there, at which time I sort of already knew. You can never get into a doctors office on the same day. For them to send me from one place to another, I just knew something was wrong. Her fears were confirmed and she spent four months undergoing chemotherapy, followed by 36 treatments to destroy the 9.2-centimeter mass, a mastectomy and removal of 36 lymph nodes. When she had her grandchildren shave her head, Toscano began making scarves to pass the time. I started making them while I was in chemo and placed them in the basket. As fast as I put them in the basket they disappeared, she said. It was funny walking around with no hair but flinging the scarf around and off my shoulder. It helped me get through. The 24-year Citrus County Craft Council member is now living by her beliefs. For every scarf I sell, I donate an extra scarf to someone at Moffitt, Toscano said. That way others can feel like they are doing their part and giving to someone going through breast cancer. To those newly diagnosed, she says to fight. Fight. Fight like you have never fought before in your life and win that battle, Toscano said. Think of all of the things in your life that you want to do. Think of your family and friends. I have a bucket list now. I plan on checking them off. Like my grandson said, You are the little engine that could, grandma, she said with a warm smile. As of Aug. 27, Toscano has been declared cancer-free. She will follow up with doctors later in October. Survivors scarves offer hope MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleDonna Toscano knits a scarf in her Homosassa home last week and discusses her battle with cancer. For each scarf she creates to sell, she knits one to give to cancer patients at Moffitt Cancer Center. CRAFT SHOWSCitrus County Craft Council upcoming shows: Nov. 8 and 9 at the Homosassa Seafood Festival. Nov. 22 at Belk location in the Crystal River Mall. Donna Toscanos hands keep busy with brightly colored material from which she creates scarves. A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerINVERNESS The tiny cottage at 208 Grace St., on the campus of Citrus Memorial Health System, is still being discovered by county residents ailing from cancer and dealing with the added stresses of hair loss. But not fast enough for volunteer Ann Possinger. Last year, the American Cancer Society opened what it calls a resource room at the site offering free wigs, turbans, scarves and bras to uninsured and underinsured patients. The room is operated two mornings a week Mondays and Wednesdays and is manned by volunteers like Possinger. I am the Monday person, she said. Possinger would like to see more volunteers sign up so the resource room can be open every day and she is eager for word to spread about their mission. She points to a display of wigs and stacks of medical bras waiting to be put into good use and improve a recovering patients outlook and esteem. If people come in and get free bras, it just makes me feel good because you can see their moods just pick up, Possinger said. Some of the volunteers like Possinger are themselves cancer survivors and are familiar with the stresses that come with losing hair during chemotherapy and, therefore, make it a point to impart empathy and provide comfort to those who come to the room. Possinger, 79, of Hernando, said she was diagnosed with cancer about a decade ago and lost her hair to chemotherapy, too. I never thought I would still be alive, she said. She is currently cancerfree and sports a tattoo of a frog on her right forearm with the word FROG written underneath it. Possinger said her husband, Cliff, urged her to get the tattoo as a reminder of what is important what the frog stands for Forever Rely On God. She sees herself as an embodiment what it means to endure the trauma of cancer. Her 56-year-old daughter Roann Adams succumbed to the disease two years ago and she said many of her relatives died at relatively young ages battling some form of cancer. Its really a miracle that I am still here, but that is what I try to convey to the people who come in here. We have a saying here called look good ... feel better. Looking good can really make you feel better and put a smile on your face, Possinger said. Possinger said the resource room could use more volunteers to expand its hours of operation. Presently, it is open from 8 a.m. to noon on Monday and 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday. Anyone who would like to volunteer or to be helped by the program should call 352637-5577.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com.

Debuting Wednesday, this AHS chapter set in Jupiter, Fla., in 1952 revolves around one of the last touring companies of physically different humans. The attraction includes a bearded lady, a woman with two heads and another with three breasts. The problem is that business is bad, forcing owner Elsa Mars (portrayed by Jessica Lange) to go to great lengths to assure that the show goes on. The shows co-creator Ryan Murphy said Lange came up with the concept. I think back in season one, she said, Weve got to do carnival, freak shows, and she kept sending me books, he said. With his creative partner Brad Falchuk, Murphy eventually embraced the idea. He wanted the show to imbue a spooky, early 1950s sci-fi feel, and he wanted to give Sarah Paulson an impossible role. She plays the characters of Bette and Dot Tattler, conjoined twins who may be the star attraction that Elsas show desperately needs. Paulson called the roles the most difficult thing Ive ever done in my life. She said the characters heads cant turn to look into each others eyes. And thats a hard thing to do, to act with yourself, Paulson explained. I like to act looking at others faces, like Kathy Bates The premiere attracted almost all members of the large AHS ensemble, including cast members who are physically different in real life. They include the 2-foot tall Jyoti Amge, the worlds smallest living woman, and Erika Ervin, who, at 6-feet 8-inches, is dubbed the worlds tallest professional model by Guinness World Records.Downey screens new movie at Ohio military baseDAYTON, Ohio Actor Robert Downey Jr. made a surprise appearance at an Ohio Air Force base for a screening of his new movie. Approximately 900 military personnel and friends cheered when Downey walked into the packed theater Sunday at WrightPatterson Air Force Base near Dayton. He was there to screen his new movie, The Judge, which doesnt open until Friday. The Dayton Daily News reported that Downey said he wanted to stop at the base because hes always been drawn to all things military. He said its just a way of reminding myself that there are people out there who put their lives on the line so I can go out and make movies. In The Judge, Downey portrays a Chicago lawyer who confronts his past in his rural Indiana hometown.Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett set for new years duetLAS VEGAS Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett are set to take the stage at The Cosmopolitan casino on New Years Eve for their first show together in the U.S. since they released a joint album late last month. The Las Vegas Strip resort announced Monday that the 28-year-old pop superstar and the 88-year-old jazz crooner will ring in the new year with jazz standards from their album Cheek to Cheek. I cant wait to kick off 2015 cheek to cheek with the legendary Mr. Tony Bennett, Lady Gaga said in a statement. New Years celebrations are about cherishing family, friendship, and the future three things this man has taught me much about.

Everything was fine, but her mammogram was inconclusive. She was called back for an additional six tests, including ultrasounds and two stereotactic biopsies. I had no lumps, bumps, symptoms or signs, but for some reason divine intervention they never stopped looking, she said. The cancer was lodged deep underneath her breast and would have gone undetected if local doctors had written it off. On Oct. 3, 2008, she had a lumpectomy followed by 10 months of chemo and radiation treatment. When they tell you youve got cancer, you go into denial and are numb, she said. Ive never been sick I dont know how to be sick. Im not a patient, so I had to learn how to be one. Then you go into a depression, and thats where some people stay. Eventually, you accept it. Im the kind of person that Im not about to let this take me over. Thats her bold and sassy spirit However, after reaching the five-year cancer-free mark, earlier this year when she was told the cancer had returned, her sassiness turned to anger. What do you mean I have cancer again? I did everything I was supposed to do, and it came back, in the same damn place? Not only that, it came back with a vengeance, in my chest wall, she said. That meant a mastectomy and no reconstructive surgery, and it meant doing it right away. I was angry, and I was filled with self-pity, she said. Losing a boob is losing part of your womanhood, and everybody can see it. Its slice and dice, right there for everyone to see. On the day of her surgery, her daughter took out her phone to take a picture, one last cleavage. Just retelling that part of her story caused tears to flow. I couldnt say it then, but I can now: Id rather lose a boob than a limb, she said. Ive got my arms and legs, and now Ive got my boob in a box. For Recanzone, losing her hair has been the hardest part of her whole ordeal. The first time, I lost my hair two days after chemo started, she said. It felt like my head was burning. I had gone on a girls weekend and got myself some turbans and cut my hair real short to prepare myself, but youre never really prepared when my husband got out the clippers, we both cried. The first time she wore a Marilyn Monroe wig, but this time shes wearing turbans. I work with the public, so theres the issue of appearance, she said. Here you are, you dont have any more eyebrows or eyelashes, youve got a bald head, and you look sick, even though you feel not too bad. So, now you have to think about how can I spruce myself up a bit to come to work? Shes not a bling person, she said, but she has had to wear longer earrings, fancy hats and remember to grab her hat on the way out the door in the morning. The thing about cancer, it completely takes over your life, she said. Everything revolves around it, going for tests, treatments, doctors appointments. You cant schedule a vacation. And it inconveniences everyone around you, too. Plus, it labels you. Im the lady with cancer. Still, cancer hasnt stopped Carol Recanzone. She goes to work every day, smiles, laughs, talks about her boob in a box. Work is important, its vital that I be here, she said. Ive gotten more cards and flowers and hugs lots of hugs, and Im on everyones prayer list. This is where theres good. Theres so much bad in the world, and if I stayed home and watched the news, Id be depressed. But I come here and realize there are good, kind, compassionate people out there, and this is a tremendous part of my healing. Shes also an inspiration to those she works with. Shes so strong, said co-worker Michelle Poydack. She comes to work every day. Its her therapy. Watching her, weve learned to be strong, said co-worker Casey Cook. You cant let things take over your life. She has cancer, but shes still out running 5Ks, doing Zumba, swimming. Nothing stops her.

in patients whose Vitamin D blood levels are high. Garland recommended randomized controlled clinical trials to confirm the findings but suggested physicians consider adding Vitamin D into a breast cancer patients standard care now, and then closely monitoring the patient. There is no compelling reason to wait for further studies to incorporate Vitamin D supplements into standard care regimens, he said. Garlands 2011 study found that a certain level of Vitamin D is associated with a 50 percent lower risk of breast cancer. Vitamin D is also being studied for its role in breast cancer treatment. The Stanford University School of Medicine is currently setting up a clinical trial to help determine if Vitamin D administration might be beneficial for women suffering bone loss and related symptoms as a result of their treatment with Aromatase inhibitors, a class of drugs used to treat breast cancer. I think there is a role for any that will make a womans or a mans, for that matter bones stronger because breast cancer, for example, is very related to hormone balance, said Dr. Gustavo A. Fonseca, a physician at Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center, Florida Cancer Specialists and Research Institute in Lecanto. He explained it is very likely in breast cancer treatment they will be using inhibitors, which block the effects of estrogen. And one of the beneficial effects of estrogen is precisely to make the bones stronger. There are a lot of very good studies that have shown that Vitamin D and calcium in conjunction with physical activity is very important for the bones, he said. So the utilization of Vitamin D as a complement or supplement for women who want to prevent bone disease is definitely well established, and I endorse it 100 percent. He emphasized that for a breast cancer survivor, exercise, increased physical activity, Vitamin D and calcium are vital. But he noted that, unfortunately, sometimes people will use the pills in lieu of the other components, such as physical activity. The truth of the matter is that physical activity, sun exposure thats how we get the Vitamin D is really the magical key, he said. Its doing something outdoors, several hours a week, and we dont do that. Vitamin D is part of the treatment, but not instead of natural Vitamin D from exposure to the sun, he said. Being in Florida, we have no excuse. We know sun exposure is good, but we just want to take the pill. We know that a lot of cancers are related precisely to diabetes, obesity and a sedentary lifestyle, and genetics, which are exactly the same things that have been associated with low levels of Vitamin D. It is definitely a solid component of the recovery, he said, and I do encourage patients to be as active as possible. However, Dr. Fonseca said it has not been established whether taking a Vitamin D supplement is going to prevent the cancer. He added there are concerns of too much Vitamin D causing kidney stones in a small subgroup of people, because their calcium goes up. But he said if they are physically active with weight-bearing exercises, that calcium will be driven into their bones. The research really is mixed, said Dr. Angela Watt, a radiologist at Citrus Memorial hospital and Associated Radiologists of Inverness. Indeed, it looks like Vitamin D can reduce the rate of cancer cells growing in the lab and also has been shown that it can decrease growth of blood vessels that supply the cancer cells. There have been a bunch of studies, and again, these experts do not agree. She cited an analysis that looked at the six largest studies up to that point in time and, based on that, found it had not been shown that Vitamin D decreases the risk of breast cancer. And regarding the recent University of California study, I think the jury is still out, she said. These researchers led to the recommendation that women who are breast cancer survivors should be receiving the appropriate RDA (recommended daily allowance) of Vitamin D. But she cautioned it is possible to have too much Vitamin D, it is fat soluble, meaning it doesnt just pass out of your system if you take too much; it can be stored in your body and it can be toxic. Her recommendation for all women is to take the recommended amount and no more. She said we get Vitamin D through sunlight and diet, but sunlight is tricky. Part of the problem in researching Vitamin D is intake is hard to measure, she said. Thats why sometimes these studies are very hard to interpret. It is very hard to objectively measure how much Vitamin D a person is taking, especially with sunlight. Even with diet, many things in our diet that have Vitamin D also have calcium. Calcium has been associated with lower cancer rates, but how do you separate the two? We have studies that say it matters and studies that say it has no effect, she said. But seeking the recommended amount per day would not hurt you and certainly would help your bones. Women have only to benefit from taking the recommended amount and there may be as-yetunproven benefits from Vitamin D. She said Vitamin D supplements can be used since the sun is not the most efficient way and not everyone does get or can get the Vitamin D they need in their diets. She said Vitamin D levels can be measured with a blood test and people should always talk with their doctor before taking any new supplements.

NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS People come in and out of our lives for a reason. Sometimes the reasons arent known, and sometimes, like the friendship between Hazel Alcorn and Jennifer (not her real name), its to pass on lessons learned. Jennifer has been gone 20 years, having suffered breast cancer that reoccurred and metastasized into other parts of her body, but Alcorn has never forgotten her friend. Two years ago, Alcorn, a part-time Inverness resident, wrote a book and study guide about Jennifers breast cancer experience, We Shared the Time of Her Life, published through Amazons CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform under the pen name Anna Lynn. The book is from my perspective as her friend and also from her husbands perspective I tell his story, she said. He talked about his feelings and emotions, a real behind-closed-doors look, and he was very transparent and honest about some of the things he felt. One of the things he said was, I wish I couldve read a book telling about the experiences we were going through. That wouldve helped me. So, he was willing to be transparent because there might be another guy out there whose wife has cancer and wasfeeling the same things he felt and feeling guilty and that hes the only one who ever felt that way. The book also talks about what Jennifer considered helpful and nothelpful, where friends were concerned. Some of the things she said surprised me, Alcorn said. For example, when she learned her cancer was terminal and people started bringing food to her house for her family, she understood why people wanted to do that, but to her, she felt it took away from her role as a wife and mother. She worked hard to prepare her family to go on without her, and that meant teaching them how to cook, Alcorn said. Shed say, Are these people going to continue bringing food for the rest of their lives? Alcorn also learned that wellmeaning friends could be intrusive and ill-timed with their questions. If she had a doctors appointment and people knew about it, they would immediately call and ask, Whats going on? What did the doctor say? She said if it was bad news, she needed time to process it, Alcorn said. Alcorn said she also learned that her friend believed in self-fulfilling prophesies, that if she focused on what was bad, she would feel worse. So, even when she knew she was terminal, even if she felt bad, she would say, Im doing good. Im OK. She told me, Im not trying to be deceptive. It helps me to say Im doing well. She didnt want her focus to be on what was wrong, but what was good, and there was good, Alcorn said. Alcorn said she wrote the book and study guide to share Jennifers courage and humor and her husbands candor, as well as her own thoughts about what it means to be a friend to someone going through any difficult time, not just cancer. In the study guide, I take Jennifers story and make the transition to the readers life, Alcorn said. Its about how to be a friend. The book, We Shared the Time of Her Life and study guide by Anna Lynn are available at Amazon.com. LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, OCTOBER7, 2014 A9 000JHOE Minimum charges apply.

Homosassa resident Donna Toscano, a stage 3 breast cancer patient in remission, wants to share her belief in Knitted Knockers Charities Inc. with fellow breast cancer patients locally. Knitted Knockers Charities is a nonprofit corporation that exists to raise awareness and help mastectomy patients regain a sense of self by receiving free Knitted Knockers, prosthetic breasts made by volunteers, according to Knitted Knockers website. There are people out there that cannot afford the prostheses, Toscano said. It was easy and slipped right into my bra. It stayed in position and I was able to wear it up until a month ago. Toscano described the knitted prosthetic breasts as formfitting, 100 percent cotton, machine washable and made by non-smokers, which she said was essential for patients undergoing treatment. Y ou cant get an allergic reaction from it, Toscano said. Recipients will receive a knitted breast in any color, rounded or flat with a nipple and in cup sizes from A to DD based on request. Toscano received her free prosthetic breast from a knitter in Indiana. It is something that somebody out there is doing that will help someone else, Toscano said. She sent a thank-you card with a pay-it-forward donation back to the sender and vowed to advocate for the cushioned device that helped lift her spirits. Over 4,000 Knitted Knockers have been donated to women throughout all 50 states. For more information on Knitted Knockers, visit knittedknockers.info.

PATFAHERTY Staff writerThere is a special connection between breast cancer survivors and the sport of dragon boat racing. When paddlers hit the water Nov. 15 for the Lake Hernando Dragon Boat Festival, one of the return entries will be the Pink Dragon Ladies, a team of breast cancer survivors from Tampa Bay. Between now and then, team members will have experienced the 2014 International Breast Cancer Paddlers Commission (IBCPC) Dragon Boat Festival in Sarasota. The Pink Dragon Ladies are co-hosting the Oct. 24 to 26 event with Save Our Sisters, another team of cancer survivors from Miami. Lim Bonomo, president and co-chair of the event, said they will host more than 3,000 survivors and their supporters from 10 countries. The international festival is held every four years, but this is first time in the United States. Team members have been getting ready for the event for the past year, which is a progression of a health innovation for breast cancer survivors. The first breast cancer dragon boat was launched in Vancouver, Canada, in 1996 by Don McKenzie, a sports medicine physician at the University of British Columbia, explained Jane Frost, IBCPC president. Don wanted to testhis theory that a moderate exercise routine for people treated for breast cancer would not cause lymphedema, a painful swelling of the arm after treatment. Don asked for 24 volunteers and I was one of those women, she said. We went to the gym for three months and then started paddling. We had the time of our lives and formed a team called Abreast In A Boat, now a Canadian legend and one that launchedthe international movement. The sport caught on and grew with the realization it could be used to raise awareness of breast cancer and the ability of survivors to lead normal lives. She said IBCPC now has 140 member teams in 12 countries Breast cancer dragon boat paddlers are now on the forefront of awareness advocacy, encouraging women of all ages to get mammograms and perform self-examinations. The Pink Dragon Ladies were formed in 2004 as the first cancer survivor dragon boat team in Florida. They compete in a 42-foot-long pink canoe called the The Dragon Lady. In the 2005 international festival, the team was the 10th fastest out of 77 entries. However, member Sylvia Moss does not think this years team is quite as strong. And one team member has gone to a hospice. Thats part of it, we lose them occasionally, said Moss, 77, the oldest team member. Our numbers fluctuate.

Surviving together BUSTERTHOMPSON Staff writerINVERNESS For loved ones battling cancer, the fight is rarely fought alone. Sandi Phillips has been diagnosed with three different forms of cancer, three separate times in the past 20 years. She was diagnosed with breast cancer this past September and is still fighting alongside her caregiver and husband of almost 50 years, Larry Phillips. When I was in really, really bad chemo, he was everything, Sandi Phillips said. He did the laundry, he did the floors, and he took me to my treatment, sat there and waited for me everything that I couldnt do because I was laying on the couch or in bed. She survived kidney cancer 20 years ago and melanoma eight years ago, each time with her husband by her side. Theres not much I can do because shes in pain, and I cant help, Larry Phillips said. Day to day is the same, and we just fight along, Sandi Phillips had a double mastectomy in January and received 52 chemotherapy treatments since March, with six more months to go. Each day comes something different, and some days I would be able to smile at him, and some days I couldnt even be around people because I would be so sick, she said. The Phillipses moved to Inverness in 1993 from Cadillac, Michigan, and have volunteered at Citrus Memorial hospital for almost 20 years. Sandi Phillips is currently in her second term as president of the volunteer auxiliary and is chairwoman of the information desk. Her husband is a volunteer transporter for diagnostic imaging, moving patients throughout the hospital in wheelchairs and beds some also receiving treatments for cancer. I try to make everything light, so they dont get shook up, Larry Phillips said. Every one of them has something different. He doesnt say much, but Larry Phillips doesnt have to when his physical compassion and caring demeanor speak for him in the presence of other patients. (Volunteering at the hospital) just brought him out so much, Sandi Phillips said. I see him standing in the hallway talking to people in wheelchairs. Other hospital volunteers have also showed their support by letting the Phillipses know theyre there every day, at every opportunity. The volunteers themselves are wonderful people, Sandi Phillips said. They brought us food after surgery, cards and hugs they supported me and helped me up, so I cant let them down. Every summer, the Phillipses venture up north to Michigan to stay in their fifth wheel set up in the resort community of Cadillac a break from the day to day but not from each other. Hes just there day after day doing whatever needs to be done, Sandi Phillips said. Our feelings for each other havent changed; we love each other more as we get older. For now, the Phillipses will continue volunteering at the hospital theyve loved for almost 20 years, hoping they can be there for as long as possible. I dont know what the future will be, Sandi Phillips said. I want to live out the rest of my life and I dont want to cut it short Ive beat it twice, Im going to beat this one. For Larry, he will continue to be there for the woman hes loved for almost 50 years. I put my faith in God and let him take care of it, he said. Its the best we can do, we try to keep a smile and keep going. One partner sick, the other becomes caretaker BUSTER THOMPSON/ChronicleLarry Phillips visits his wife, Sandi, at the front desk inside Citrus Memorial hospital, where theyve both volunteered for almost 20 years. Sandi Phillips has been receiving treatments since March for breast cancer, diagnosed in September of last year.

Associated PressANKARA, Turkey The NATO alliance has drawn up a strategy to defend Turkey if it is attacked along its border with Syria, a Turkish official said Monday. Defense Minister Ismet Yilmaz, whose country is a NATO member, said the alliance did that at his governments request as Islamic State militants, who have captured a large swath of Iraq and Syria, are trying to take the Syrian town of Kobani near the Turkish border. If there is an attack, NATOs joint defense mechanisms will be activated, Yilmaz told reporters. From the moment the incidents relating to Syria first started, we asked NATO to prepare for possibilities to make plans. NATO prepared a plan taking various alternatives into account. Therefore, he said, if there is an attack on Turkey, NATO will bring about the provisions of Article 5 of the Washington Convention. Article 5 states that an attack against one NATO member shall be considered an attack against all members. NATOs new secretary general, Jens Stoltenberg, appeared to confirm what Turkey was saying during a news conference in Warsaw, Poland, on Monday. After expressing concern about the violence in Syria and the fact that it has spilled over into Iraq, he said: The main responsibility for NATO is to protect all allied countries. Turkey is a NATO ally and our main responsibility is to protect the integrity, the borders of Turkey, and thats the reason why we have deployed Patriot missiles in Turkey to enhance, to strengthen their air defense of Turkey. And Turkey should know that NATO will be there if there is any spillover, any attacks on Turkey as a consequence of the violence we see in Syria. Kurdish forces are defending Kobani, but two banners of the Islamic State group were raised over a building and a nearby hill on Monday, suggesting that the militants may have broken through the Kurdish perimeter.WORLDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, OCTOBER7, 2014 A13 Patient and any other person responsible for payment has a right to refuse to pay, cancel payment, or be reimbursed for payment for any other service, examination, or treatment that is performed as a result of and within 72 hrs of responding to ad for the free, discounted fee, or reduced fee service examination, or treatment. 000JHOZ Join us for exclusive specials and your chance to win prizes at our upcoming event!

Associated PressHONG KONG The students whose calls for democratic reforms sparked the most dramatic challenge to authorities since Hong Kong returned to Chinese control are vowing to keep up the fight. But as the numbers of protesters dwindled Monday from tens of thousands into the hundreds, it was unclear where the tumult of the past week would lead. Schools reopened and civil servants returned to work after protesters cleared the area outside the city government headquarters, a focal point of the demonstrations that began Sept. 26. Crowds also thinned markedly at the two other protest sites, and traffic flowed again through many roads that had been blocked. In the Mong Kok district, the site of weekend clashes in which mobs tried to drive the demonstrators out of the intersection they were blocking, hundreds of curious onlookers surrounded the remaining protesters Monday evening, taking pictures. The threats in Mong Kok have passed, and now people are just curious about the sit-in, said 36year-old Anita Lee, a resident. Thats why there are more onlookers than protesters. Many in Hong Kong are wondering if the protest movement may have run its course and whether the students have a clear strategy for pressing their demand that all candidates for the citys top leader, or chief executive, not be screened by a pro-Beijing committee. They cant sustain attendance in protests if it goes on and on, said Michael Davis, a professor at Hong Kong University. They need some strategy where they can withdraw the crowds so they can say to the government that if they are not sincere, they will mobilize crowds back on the streets. Disagreements were evident after the students and the government began preliminary talks. Lau Kong-wah, the undersecretary of constitutional affairs, said late Monday that the government and students had agreed on terms for the talks, including that the two sides would be on an equal footing. Lester Shum, a leader of the Hong Kong Federation of Students, confirmed the agreement, but said they had not discussed or reached a consensus on the agenda. Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, who has rejected the protesters calls for him to resign, said in a TV address Monday that the government would seek a sincere dialogue on political reform. At the same time, Leung reiterated that everyone should go home and stop blocking the streets. There are lots of teenagers and students with passion who love Hong Kong in various assemblies. However, some of them are aggressive and use violence. No matter what your attitude is toward Occupy Central, the police will firmly take enforcement action to those who use violence, he said. The students say they would walk away from the talks if police, who fired tear gas and pepper spray on unarmed protesters Sept. 28, use force to clear away the remaining demonstrators. The police violence and attacks by mobs drew huge crowds in a massive show of support. Its up to the government now. This is the first step, but the pressure has to continue, said Alex Chow, one of the student leaders. Questions surround Hong Kong protests Momentum begins to fade Associated PressPolice officers stand guard Monday at a main road in the Mong Kok area in Hong Kong. Turkey: NATO will help defend country Islamic State forces drawing close to border Associated PressSAO PAULO Aecio Neves surprisingly strong showing in the first round of Brazils presidential election has turned the nations politics on its head and put him within striking distance of incumbent Dilma Rousseff, but the former governor still faces a heavy task if he is to unseat her. The business-minded Neves came within 8 percentage points of Rousseff in Sundays vote and has momentum and a strong central-right party on his side. The challenge for Neves, who was born into affluence and political power, will be to connect with Brazils poor, millions of whom have directly benefited from Rousseffs policies. He needs a more popular dialogue to build a bridge to those voters, said Mauricio Moura, a Brazilian pollster and professor of political strategy at George Washington University. The 54-year-old economist has three weeks to do it. Neves defied expectations in Sundays first-round vote, finishing second with 34 percent to Rousseffs 42 percent. Socialist Party candidate Marina Silva, who at one point led Rousseff in polling, finished third at 21 percent and will not advance to the Oct. 26 runoff. Voters now have a clear choice: Reelect the left-leaning Rousseff and endorse her protectionist trade stance or move to the right with Neves, who has promised to cut government spending, open infrastructure to the private sector and pursue direct trade deals with Europe and the United States. They are positions certain to be attacked by Rousseff now that Silva is out of the race. Silva, a popular former environment minister, drew huge support after she was named to replace Eduardo Campos, her partys initial candidate who died in a plane crash in August. But her appeal waned after Rousseff launched an aggressive campaign to discredit her, including negative ads that portrayed Silvas plans to loosen control of the business sector as a threat to the social gains made under 12 years of Workers Party rule. Aecio hasnt been under much scrutiny in the past month given Marinas surge. But now he is going to be the center of attention for the PTs (Workers Party) machinery, said Joao Augusto de Castro Neves, Latin America director for the Eurasia Group consulting firm. Associated PressAecio Neves, presidential candidate of the Brazilian Social Democracy Party, PSDB, smiles as he arrives Monday for a press conference in Sao Paulo, Brazil. President Dilma Rousseff piled up more votes in Sundays election than any challenger, but it wasnt enough to avoid a runoff. Neves, a center-right former governor and senator, came in second. Surprise contender in Brazil election runoff Associated PressBUENOS AIRES, Argentina Argentinas former Economy Minister Domingo Cavallo was absolved by a local court on Monday in a case over the 2001 debt swap ahead of the countrys worst economic crisis. Cavallo, 68, had faced charges of illegal negotiations in the hiring of banks to carry out the $30 billion swap. A Buenos Aires court said that he didnt commit any crime in the failed operation aimed at preventing the country from going into default. Details of the court ruling will be released Oct. 14. Prosecutors had requested a three-year jail sentence for Cavallo and a lifetime ban from holding public office. They maintained that Cavallo had favored some banks during the swap and harmed the government by charging a commission for the deal. But Cavallo always denied any wrongdoing, saying he was a scapegoat for Argentinas worst economic crisis. Argentinian court absolves former Economy Minister

Dottie Polk 000J36Z KATIEHENDRICK CorrespondentFor breast cancer patients in remission, there is no magic diet that will keep you cancer free, but watching what you eat certainly matters. Its very individual, said Dr. Vipul Patel, a hematologist and oncologist with Florida Cancer Specialists in Inverness. It doesnt matter so much what you eat, just that you maintain a healthy weight. Two studies from The National Cancer Institute The Womens Interventional Nutrition Survey and The Womens Healthy Eating Study examined diets link to breast cancer treatment by comparing the outcomes of women who adhered to a low fat (fewer than 20 percent of daily calories) and high vegetable diet to those in a control group who ate whatever they wanted. In The Womens Interventional Nutrition Survey, the healthy eaters felt better and had a lower rate of recurrence. In the second study, there was no effect. The difference? No one lost weight in The Womens Healthy Eating Study, Dr. Patel said. According to the National Cancer Institute, women should keep their body mass index (BMI) below 30 to reduce the risk of recurrence of breast cancer. A BMI under 25 is ideal, Dr. Patel said. Leaner women tend to do better with chemotherapy, he said. Achieving a healthy BMI has many factors, including genetics, but certain lifestyle choices have generally positive results. Dr. Patel and the American Cancer Society recommend reaching for foods high in nutrients and low in calories, such as whole fruits and vegetables (versus canned), minimizing consumption of saturated and trans fats, drinking 2.7 liters of water a day to stave off dehydration, and getting a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week. Theres also some data suggesting spices cumin, garlic, ginger and turmeric might have a positive impact, he said. The thinking there, he said, is that spices add flavor to food without adding calories. One much-maligned ingredient patients frequently ask Dr. Patel about is sugar. Sugar does not feed cancer, he said. But, it adds calories, which can lead to weight gain, which increases the risk of recurrence. The only ingredient known to have an adverse impact on breast health: alcohol. There have been many studies that show heavy alcohol consumption, which is about three glasses of wine a day, increases the risk of breast cancer by 11 percent, Dr. Patel said. He advises his patients to abstain from alcohol during their treatment and to keep drinking to a minimum when theyre in remission. Norma Reynolds, a dietician with Citrus Memorial Health System, explained the reasons heavy drinking is dangerous, particularly for breast cancer patients. Alcohol consumption can increase blood levels of estrogen, a sex hormone linked to the risk of breast cancer, Reynolds said. It also impairs the bodys ability to break down and absorb a variety of nutrients such as Vitamins A, B complex, C, D, E and carotenoids. Reynolds also addressed the other side to weight maintenance: not eating enough. To combat weight loss and fatigue, side effects for many undergoing cancer treatment, its important to eat whenever youre hungry, regardless of time of day, Reynolds said. Whole grains can help offset peaks and valleys of energy. To get adequate nutrients, Reynolds recommends a diet rich in lean meats, fish, poultry, whole grains, legumes, dairy, cheese, soy products and mushrooms. Protein, which helps repair body tissue and keeps the immune system healthy, is very important, she said. Good examples of this include applesauce, bananas, oatmeal, cream of wheat, Jello, nuts, peanut butter and cottage cheese. Finally, cancer patients should be extra vigilant in avoiding raw and undercooked foods. (A safe temperature is 165 degrees or higher, she said.) Cancer and its treatments can weaken the immune system, making you more susceptible to many types of infections, including those brought on by disease-causing bacteria and other pathogens that lead to food-borne illnesses, she said. Those undergoing cancer treatments are more likely to have lengthier illnesses, undergo hospitalization or die, should they contract a food-borne illness.

Associated PressDENVER Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush hasnt said whether hes going to run for president in 2016, but hes going on the air in three races this year in Spanish. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce on Monday released Spanish-language ads Bush filmed for three Republican candidates: Rep. Cory Gardner in Colorado, who is running for U.S. Senate; embattled Rep. David Valadao in California; and Martha McSally, who is trying to oust Democratic Rep. Ron Barber in Arizona. Bush is President George W. Bushs brother and many Republican power brokers favored 2016 candidate. He is bilingual and supports immigration reform. But that position could make it challenging for him to win a Republican primary if he runs. Jeb Bushs intercession comes in three of the few races where Republicans need Hispanic voters this cycle. In Colorado, where 14 percent of voters are Hispanic, Gardner has become more in favor of an immigration overhaul. Valadao is one of two Republicans who signed a petition to force a vote on a Senate immigration bill that died in the House. McSally is running in a district with a sizeable Hispanic population. Associated PressORLANDO Floridas Republican Attorney General Pam Bondi and Democratic challenger George Sheldon clashed with each other and with Libertarian Bill Wohlsifer on Monday, tackling issues such as medical marijuana and samesex marriage during the first and only debate in the race for Floridas top legal job. Bondi said she worries a ballot initiative legalizing medical marijuana will allow the drug to fall into the hands of young teens, but Sheldon said he trusts doctors to prescribe it if the measure passes. Bondi said she doesnt want to hurt Floridians with terminal illnesses but she said Floridas young teens could get their hands on the drug as an unintended consequence of the initiative. The proposal would allow marijuana to be prescribed to people with debilitating diseases. I think were going to have a pot clinic on every corner, Bondi said. The doctors who prescribe it would have full immunity from the civil bar. But Sheldon said it would be no different from any other drug prescribed by doctors and that law enforcement would crack down on any abuse. Wohlsifer said the ballot measure doesnt go far enough. On same-sex marriage, Bondi recited a statement she has often repeated: She has sworn to uphold the Florida Constitution, including an amendment passed by Florida voters six years ago banning gay marriage. On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear appeals from five states seeking to prohibit gay and lesbian unions, clearing the way for an immediate expansion of samesex marriage. Bondi called it a tremendous win for supporters of same-sex marriage. She said her office would review how they should respond. Sheldon said the high courts decision not to take up any of the same-sex marriage cases showed the justices didnt think there was a wide disagreement among the various court circuits. Government ought to get out of the business of telling people who they can love, Sheldon said. Judges in four Florida counties Palm Beach, Monroe, Miami-Dade and Broward have overturned Floridas ban on same-sex marriage. But Bondis office has appealed the rulings and asked judges to stop ruling on same-sex marriage cases until the U.S. Supreme Court decides whether states can ban gay marriage. During Mondays debate, when asked if she would cease defending the marriage ban, Bondi said other same-sex marriage cases are pending in other court circuits and she wants to see what happens to them before taking action. Sheldon accused Bondi of not intervening sufficiently in utility rate cases. Bondi defended her record, saying she pushed for one of Floridas largest power companies, Duke Energy Florida, to give back $54 million it collected from ratepayers to pay for a failed nuclear plant.STATECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, OCTOBER7, 2014 A15 000JEHNP Dr. Richard C.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Vice President Joe Bidens biggest mistake in accusing U.S. allies of supporting extremists in Syria may be that he said publicly what Obama administration officials have long preferred to say only privately. Biden apologized over the weekend to Turkey and the United Arab Emirates after saying they had a role in allowing foreign fighters, weapons and money into Syria to bolster groups fighting Syrian President Bashar Assad. He also made similar statements about Saudi Arabias role in aiding extremists. The diplomatic scramble that followed underscores the Middle Easts tangled alliances and the murky sources of support that have helped Syria become a hotbed for extremists. While Bidens comments were in line with some of what U.S. officials have been saying for months, they also have the potential to complicate administration efforts to keep those same counties in the coalition fighting the Islamic State, one of the most violent groups that have taken hold in Syria. Even after Bidens backto-back apologies, the White House was still in clean-up mode Monday. Officials made clear that Biden had erred in his public comments, but stopped short of declaring them inaccurate. He himself wishes he had said them a little differently, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said in response to one of several questions on the matter in his daily briefing for reporters. WHAT DID BIDEN SAY? Biden, during a question-and-answer session at the Harvard Kennedy School on Thursday, said that one of the biggest challenges for the U.S. in identifying a moderate opposition to Assad was that U.S. allies were helping strengthen groups with extremist tendencies. The Saudis, the Emiratis, etc. What were they doing? They were so determined to take down Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war, Biden said. What did they do? They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands of tons of weapons in to anyone who would fight against Assad. The problem, the vice president continued, is that the money and weapons ended up in the hands of the al-Qaida affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra and now the Islamic State group. Biden also singled out Turkey for allowing foreign fighters to flow across its border into Syria. In describing a phone call he had with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan last week, Biden said the Turkish leader had told him, You were right. We let too many people through. So were trying to seal the border. WHAT ARE THE FACTS? The facts about the flow of weapons, money and fighters into Syria are murky, though U.S. officials and regional experts largely agree that there are points of origin in countries including Turkey, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Qatar. There is no doubt that Turkey for a long time let fighters get into Syria, said Marina Ottaway, a senior scholar at the Wilson Center, a Washington-based think tank. They were determined to get rid of Assad so they were allowing people to go through. Ottaway said there was also certainly money going from Saudi Arabia, there was money going from Qatar. While President Barack Obama and other senior administration officials have talked broadly about the need to limit regional support for extremist groups in Syria, theyve stopped short of calling out specific countries and governments by name. A key question about the source of the support for extremist groups is whether the regional governments explicitly facilitated the flow of money, weapons and fighters, or just turned a blind eye to the actions of wealthy and well-connected individuals within their country. Biden appeared to suggest a more direct government role than other U.S. officials have. WHY DID BIDEN APOLOGIZE? The timing of Bidens remarks created a diplomatic headache for a White House that has spent months trying to convince powerful regional players to join the fight against the Islamic State group. Thus far, Obama has had surprising success in garnering their support. Five Arab nations have joined the U.S. in the bombing campaign against the militants in Syria, including Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Turkeys parliament also approved a motion giving the government powers for military operations across the border in Syria and Iraq and for foreign troops to use Turkeys territory. The swiftness of Bidens personal apologies to Turkeys president and Prince Mohamed bin Zayed, the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, reflect the degree to which the White House wants to keep those partnerships in place. Still, the White House readouts of both apologies were carefully crafted. Officials said Biden apologized to Erdogan for implying that his country had intentionally supplied or facilitated the growth of the Islamic State or other extremist groups in Syria. The White House said Biden similarly told the crown prince of Abu Dhabi that he had not meant to imply that the Emirates had facilitated or supported extremists.A16TUESDAY, OCTOBER7, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION If you are not completely satisfied, the aids may be returned for a full refund within 45 days of t he completion of fitting, in satisfactory condition.

Associated PressSEATTLE The Seattle City Council is replacing Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day in the city. The resolution that passed unanimously Monday celebrates the contributions and culture of Native Americans and the indigenous community in Seattle on the second Monday in October, the same day as the federally recognized Columbus Day. Tribal members and other supporters say the move recognizes the rich history of people who have inhabited the area for centuries. This action will allow us to bring into current present day our valuable and rich history, and its there for future generations to learn, said Fawn Sharp, president of the Quinault Nation, a tribe on the Olympic Peninsula, who is also president of the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians. Nobody discovered Seattle, Washington, she said to a round of applause. Several Italian-Americans and others objected to the change, saying Indigenous Peoples Day honors one group while disregarding the Italian heritage of others. Columbus Day is a federal holiday that commemorates the arrival of Christopher Columbus, who was Italian, in the Americas on Oct. 12, 1492. We dont argue with the idea of Indigenous Peoples Day. We do have a big problem of it coming at the expense of what essentially is Italian Heritage Day, said Ralph Fascitelli, an Italian-American who lives in Seattle, speaking outside the meeting. This is a big insult to those of us of Italian heritage. We feel disrespected, Fascitelli said. He added, America wouldnt be America without Christopher Columbus. Seattle Mayor Ed Murray is expected to sign the resolution, his spokesman Jason Kelly said. The Bellingham City Council also is concerned that Columbus Day offends some Native Americans. It will consider an ordinance Oct. 13 to recognize the second Monday in October as Coast Salish Day. The Seattle School Board decided last week to have its schools observe Indigenous Peoples Day on the same day as Columbus Day. Earlier this year, Minneapolis also decided to designate that day as Indigenous Peoples Day. South Dakota, meanwhile, celebrates Native Americans Day. Seattle councilmember Bruce Harrell said he understood the concerns from people in the ItalianAmerican community, but he said, I make no excuses for this legislation. He said he co-sponsored the resolution because he believes the city wont be successful in its social programs and outreach until we fully recognize the evils of our past. Councilmember Nick Licata, who is Italian-American, said he didnt see the legislation as taking something away, but rather allowing everyone to celebrate a new day where everyones strength is recognized. David Bean, a member of the Puyallup Tribal Council, told councilmembers the resolution demonstrates that the city values tribal members history, culture, welfare and contributions to the community. Associated PressHARRISBURG, Pa. Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett said Monday he supports a bill designed to prevent offenders from causing their victims mental anguish, a proposal launched after a Vermont college choose a convicted cop killer as a commencement speaker. Corbett spoke at a Capitol event one day after Mumia Abu-Jamal gave a recorded address to about 20 graduates at Goddard College in Plainfield. Nobody has the right to continually taunt the victims of their violent crimes in the public square, Corbett said. He called the schools choice of Abu-Jamal unconscionable. The bill that advanced out of a House committee Monday would allow victims to go to court for an injunction against conduct which perpetuates the continuing effects of the crime on the victim. Abu-Jamal is serving life in prison for killing Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981. In the recorded remarks, he encouraged the students to think about the myriad of problems that beset this land and strive to make it better.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, OCTOBER7, 2014 A17 WE ACCEPT MEDICARE AND MEDICAID FOR MOST MEDICAL EQUIPMENT 609 SE U.S. HWY. 19 CRYSTAL RIVER (352) 564-1414 Life just got a little easier Quality Mobility $ 159 AND UP In Stock 4-Wheel Walkers 000JGAN 8303 S.

Associated PressWEST POINT, N.Y. Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was honored Monday at West Point with the U.S. Military Academys annual Thayer Award. The award is given to a U.S. citizen for outstanding service in the national interest that illustrates the academys motto of Duty, Honor, Country. For more than three decades and during some of Americas more trying times, she has participated in shaping our Nations development and implementation of foreign policy and national security strategies, according to Rices award citation. Interspersed with government service, Dr. Rices contributions within Americas academic, corporate, and social spheres have been far-reaching and, at times, groundbreaking. Rice, 59, is a professor at the Stanford University Graduate School of Business and a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution. She was President George W. Bushs secretary of state from 2005 to 2009 the first African-American woman in that position. She previously had been a special assistant to the director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, lead Soviet and East European affairs adviser on the staff of the National Security Council and National Security Advisor. Rice also advocates after-school academic enrichment programs and is an author, musician and trustee of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The award is named for Col. Sylvanus Thayer, West Points fifth superintendent and known as the Father of the Military Academy. Last years honoree also was a former secretary of state: Madeleine Albright, who served during President Bill Clintons second term.A18TUESDAY, OCTOBER7, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION 352-628-1400 Toll Free: 1-877-647-1400 email@example.com At Triton Lumber We Now Carry .

Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO Personal computer sales have been in a slump for years, as customers flock to increasingly powerful smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. Now Hewlett-Packard, the Silicon Valley stalwart that was once the worlds biggest seller of personal computers, is splitting off its PC and printing businesses. Its the latest shakeup in a tech industry thats being reshaped by the mobile revolution. IBM sold its PC business years ago. Dell took its struggles private. Can an HP spinoff focused on personal computing thrive? Theres a significant transformation going on in that industry, and maybe now HP can make its move, said Forrester tech analyst Peter Burris, one of several analysts who say the iconic tech giant will need to get better at building and selling mobile gadgets if it wants the new spinoff to succeed. HP has stumbled in previous efforts to sell those devices. HPs split is a sign that CEO Meg Whitman sees more growth and profit opportunity in selling commercial tech products, including data-center hardware, business software and cloud services, some analysts say. Thats the business she plans to lead, as chief executive of a new company dubbed HewlettPackard Enterprise. That puts more pressure on the HP Inc. spinoff, which will be led by current PC and printing executive Dion Weisler as CEO. Though it was once the world leader in both segments, HP is now No.2 to Chinas Lenovo in PC sales. Tablets now out-sell laptop computers. And no other major U.S. tech company is focused on selling only PCs. Apple Inc.s growth in recent years has been fueled by the phenomenal success of its iPhone and iPad devices. Dell also sells commercial computer hardware and software. Even Lenovo is purchasing IBMs server business and taking over the Motorola smartphone division from Google Inc. PC sales arent going away entirely, to be sure. There are still some cases where PCs are more useful than smaller-screen devices, especially in the workplace, said Bob ODonnell of TECHnalysis Research. The industry sold more than 310million desktop and laptop computers last year, and one out of six were sold by Palo Alto, California-based HP. But global sales fell 10percent in 2013 and are likely to fall another 4percent this year, according to the IDC research firm. PC sales should level off in 2015, forecasts ODonnell. They can be profitable, he said, but its a stable, flat kind of market. Printer ink has been a major source of profit for HP in years past. But printing also is a stagnating business, as more people store photos and files online and view them primarily on their phones and tablets. Even so, tying the printing business to PCs should provide a stable source of revenue for HP Inc. for some years to come, said tech analyst Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights and Strategy.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, OCTOBER7, 2014 A19 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,800 1,850 1,900 1,950 2,000 2,050 AMJJAS 1,920 1,960 2,000 S&P 500Close: 1,964.82 Change: -3.08 (-0.2%) 10 DAYS 16,000 16,400 16,800 17,200 17,600 AMJJAS 16,640 16,940 17,240 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 16,991.91 Change: -17.78 (-0.1%) 10 DAYSAdvanced1542 Declined1585 New Highs43 New Lows72 Vol. (in mil.)3,261 Pvs. Volume3,483 1,773 1,728 857 1807 30 117 NYSE NASD DOW 17099.3916930.3816991.91-17.78-0.10%+2.51% DOW Trans.8545.678382.238384.63-97.36-1.15%+13.30% DOW Util.558.78553.14555.34-0.15-0.03%+13.20% NYSE Comp.10704.9010611.2310647.51+12.02+0.11%+2.38% NASDAQ4496.264444.104454.80-20.82-0.47%+6.66% S&P5001977.841958.431964.82-3.08-0.16%+6.30% S&P4001370.191358.021360.55-3.85-0.28%+1.34% Wilshire 500020815.0220607.7420665.04-50.49-0.24%+4.87% Russell 20001108.001093.771094.65-10.09-0.91%-5.93% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

After opening higher, stocks gave up their early gains and alternated between small gains and small losses. The markets bull run has faltered in recent weeks and the Standard & Poors 500 index logged its biggest monthly drop since January last month. Stocks rebounded from that slump on Friday after a report showed a pickup in hiring last month, but many investors remain uncertain about the outlook for stocks as the Fed nears the end of its bond-buying stimulus program and considers raising rates. The tug of war between the bulls and the bears is ongoing now, said Quincy Krosby, a market strategist at Prudential Financial. The S&P 500 fell 3.08points, or 0.2percent, to 1,964.82. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 17.78points, or 0.1percent, to 16,991.91. The Nasdaq composite fell 20.82points, or 0.5percent, to 4,454.80.

OPINION Page A20TUESDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2014 Go through governorI have been out of town for the past two weeks. When I came home, I saw the editorial regarding a disabled veteran and his plight to get his license plate. It surprised me, as I thought this would have been an issue addressed many years ago, as I did as a state legislator in New Hampshire in 1999. At the time in 1999, my telephone number was, as it always was, in the local telephone book, and I got a couple of calls from disabled veterans asking me if I could help them. I met with them, both World WarII veterans, who told me that they had gone to get their disabled veteran license plates, and were told they needed a doctors note to prove to the Department of Motor Vehicles that they were disabled. They were taken aback, since both of them were determined to be permanently disabled and receive veterans benefits for their disability from the Veterans Administration in Washington. I told them I would bring in legislation to correct the situation. Needless to say, my bill HB 92 flew through the New Hampshire House and Senate and was signed into law by the governor. This act exempted permanently disabled veterans from the requirement of reestablishing their disability status for the Department of Motor Vehicles every 4 years to prove eligibility for special license plates. It was clear to me that the sacrifice they endured was significant and the state DMV was adding insult to injury asking them to go through yet another hoop when they were already designated as our clearly courageous veterans. It was an easy fix to the problem. I am taken aback that the Florida Legislature has taken so long to catch up to New Hampshire. The language of the simple fix has been sent to both state Sen. Charlie Dean and state Rep. Jimmie Smith to file to help correct this issue for both the individual affected and for all permanently disabled veterans across our state of Florida. I believe our local DMV in Citrus County called Tallahassee to seek an exemption for that individual, but was unable to prevail. My recommendation to anyone who is elected would be, since the Legislature is in recess, to ask the governor to issue an executive order to enable that individual to receive his license plate as a permanently disabled veteran without having to go to their physician to get a doctors note to prove their disability once again, until the newly legislation is introduced and passed.Suzan Franks Hernando SHAWNEE, Kan.Tacked to the wall of Greg Ormans campaign office is a print of a John Steuart Curry painting, Tragic Prelude, that hangs in the capitol in Topeka. It depicts John Brown of Osawatomie, 39 miles south of here, as what he was, a deranged product of bleeding Kansas, the Civil Wars overture. Today, Orman, who is as calm as Brown was crazed, is emblematic of fascinating Kansas. Orman wants to deny Pat Roberts a fourth Senate term, thereby ending a congressional career that began in 1981 with 16years in the House. Orman, who favors term limits and pledges to serve only two terms, is running as an independent. The Democrats nominee has dropped out of the race, so Orman, 45, or Roberts, 78, will be a senator come January. Sensible Kansans have a problematic choice to ponder: Electing Orman would deepen the Senates pool of talent, but it might thwart Republican efforts to control the Senate. Kansas has not elected a Democratic senator since 1932 and has voted Republican in 12 consecutive presidential elections. It has, however, had Democratic governors during 28 of the past 50years, and its Republican senators have often had Bob Doles collaborative (Ormans approving word) style. Orman has made campaign contributions to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Harry Reid, and voted for Obama in 2008 but favored Romney in 2012. Orman discusses policy problems with a fluency rare among Senate candidates and unusual among senators. From his firmly Republican father, who owns a small furniture store in Stanley, Kansas, Orman acquired an animus against the beehive of regulations: One regulation is a pinprick but cumulatively regulations are akin to falling into a beehive. He is reading Paul Ryans new book, and shares Ryans anxiety about how nearly 60percent of the federal expenditures are not subject to annual appropriations. He also shares Ryans dismay that a single mother earning about $20,000 can pay, in effect, a marginal tax rate twice as high as the 39.6percent top statutory rate on the affluent because she can lose government benefits and incur expenses when she increases her earnings. Orman is anxious about the deficit explosion that will occur when the cost of government borrowing doubles, as surely it will. (Deficits are nothing more than deferred taxes.) But when asked about even such a minor change in entitlement spending as the chained CPI recalculation of inflation, he is noncommittal. Independent politicians are politicians, too. In high school, Orman became national president of Boys Nation, which earned in 1986 a Rose Garden ceremony with Ronald Reagan. In 1988, while at Princeton, he did some work for George H.W. Bushs presidential campaign. That year, Orman says, a sight on New Yorks subway two children clinging to their father, who did not seem to feel safe quickened his interest in politics, which has occupied more of his life since business success made him wealthy. In Ormans office here, Princetons 1991 yearbook is open to the page with his picture. Next to it is a pungent quotation he chose from Ross Perot (The wimps are us), who a year later as an independent presidential candidate would receive 19percent of the popular vote, including 27percent in Kansas. Orman, who says he will caucus with whichever party is clearly in the majority next year, has a month to clarify clearly. If in January there are 51 or more Republican senators and 48 Democrats (counting the two independents who caucus with them), Orman would join the Republicans. If there are 50 Republicans and 49 Democrats, would Orman conduct an auction: What problem-solving agenda would each party outline to engage him to give it control? (Democrats have Vice President Biden as a tiebreaker.) Ormans clearly might indicate his understanding that a narrow Republican majority won in 2014 might evaporate in 2016, when Republicans will be defending 24seats rather than this years 15. The Senates intellectual voltage would be increased by Ormans election. But improving 1percent of the Senate is less important than taking 100percent of Senate control from Harry Reid, who has debased the institution to serve Barack Obama, whose job approval among Kansans is just 40percent. Some Kansans will try to calculate whether they can send Orman to a Senate that will be clearly controlled by Republicans. So, this campaign is a prelude to a wager with national consequences.

County residential road resurfacing stopped in 2012, when Duke Energy refused to pay the amount of property taxes levied by the county. But the need for repaving has not gone away. According to county officials, about half of the 1,600 miles of residential roads in the county are ready for resurfacing, while only a third of residential roads are considered to be in good shape. The current commissions proposal for raising the money for residential road repaving is an additional 1 cent sales tax, which county officials call Cent for Citrus. This new tax is on the November ballot. This is an idea that was proposed in 2009, but never made it to the ballot, and from the time the current sales tax proposal was announced, it has stirred opposition. This opposition has come from some commissioners, from the public through letters to the editor and Sound Off comments, and now comes from the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce, which says the new tax is unnecessary and would cause a burden for taxpayers. Chamber officials say that with the revenue coming from the planned Duke Energy generating plant and from taxes paid by Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) on the Citrus Memorial hospital deal, the new tax is not necessary. With a proposal that is unlikely to be passed by taxaverse voters, and the odds of a new commission majority who have said they are against the idea, it appears highly unlikely that road paving money will come from the proposed sales tax increase. However, the need will not go away with defeat of a tax proposal. Roads in need of repair do not heal themselves. They continue to get worse, and fixing them costs money. What this means for the new commission is that many residential roads either go without repaving or the commission will have to come up with funds for paving, either from general county revenue, from the gas tax or from levies on individual property owners whose roads are repaved. This will be a test of whether the new commission can address real problems in the community and still hew to the lower taxes and reprioritizing of spending themes that have been popular refrains this year. We hope they are successful, because many of the countys roads need repaving, and the commission will be responsible for deciding how to fund this work.

I live in Citrus Springs, and every year theres been an MSBU on mine for Citrus Springs and its a $25 cost. And also, I have the solid waste of $25 and obviously the fire thing that was on there last year. So Im just wondering, you know. Theyre talking that if we dont do this 1 cent tax, theyre going to end up, were going to have to petition the county to fix our roads. But here we already pay taxes to the county for this kind of stuff, so now were going to end up paying tens of thousands of dollars. And this is what people really need to listen to. ... If this does happen, I was very, very, very much behind our commissioners Joe Meek, especially but if this does go through and theyre going to end up making us petition to get our roads fixed, I will vote, myself will vote to get rid of every commissioner that is in there right now so we can get some people that have got some sense.Please vote for Joey WhiteI do not know Joey White, I have not met Joey White, I have never seen Joey White, but I heard his commercials on the radio and did a little research and the man seems like hes pretty qualified to be a commissioner. Since Scott Adams is so smugly laughing at the fact that Ron Kitchen is a shoo-in in the November election, I would love to encourage Democrats and independents alike to vote for Joey White and deny Mr. Adams his ridiculous attitude on a majority on the county commission.

Citrus County is not a country clubReading the different articles about the road tax of one penny and the MSBU for fire department services makes me wonder what kind of thinking takes place on the part of our commissioners and department heads. Both of these taxes will take money from us and have it set aside (saved) until the project identified needs the money. Both will be collecting money before it is needed or definite plans are made and approved. This is no way to run the county finances! This is not the way a county government should operate. When a plan for a project has been prepared, submitted and approved it should include the type of financing that will be required. Usually this requires bonding, which is the correct way to finance large or capital expenditures. For example, road paving. The project for the year would be identified. A bond would be issued for the amount of money required, say $10million at 3percent interest for one year. The interest of $300,000 would be paid off as a part of the operating budget for that year, leaving the principal of $10million. The second-year project would be identified at, say, $10million again and the next bond would be issued for $20million at 3percent interest again for one year. $10million to pay off the first bond and $10million for the second years work. Again, the interest on this bond of $600,000 would be paid off monthly as a part of the years operating budget. The third year would be the same as year two and so forth until the last year of the program. The last year would require a longer term to actually pay off the bond, say 10 or 20years. By using the bonding program, the cost to the taxpayers would be deferred over many years and only interest on the bonds would be paid out of taxpayers pockets until the last year when the principal amount would need to be retired. I think that this would be much preferred over a one-cent tax. A similar type of bonding program should be used for the fire departments future expenditures such as purchasing land and building fire houses and only when definite plans for projects including costs and financing have been submitted and approved by the commissioners. You and I can set our money aside and save it for, perhaps, years when there is something big that we want to buy and own. A country club could also operate this way. But this is not the way a county government should be operating and that is why the bonding system is available to them and this is what they should be doing. When what we want to own is too large to save for, such as a car or house, then we borrow money and pay off the loan for years. This is exactly what the county should be doing for the road and fire house program borrow the money and then pay it off. I wonder if the commissioners have a threshold for money expenditures as to when the expense should be a part of the operational budget or when bonding is required for capital or large repair expenses. If they dont have a threshold, they should. Come on commissioners, start acting like a government should and stop acting like you are running a country club.Alfred E. Mason Crystal River Shoe, sock drive enormously successfulThe Nature Coast Volunteer Center of Citrus County and the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program are grateful for the socks and shoes donations received from the community during their annual Two Good Soles Shoes & Socks Drive. Through the efforts of wonderful and dedicated volunteers, we were able to collect 2,553 pairs of new socks and shoes for children in need. Donation boxes were located throughout the county at various locations, and we came together as a community to give back in honor of those who gave their lives and service to others on 9/11. We would especially like to thank all who donated monetarily to the program. The Mens Auxiliary of VFW Post 10087, the Ladies Auxiliary of VFW Post 10087, and the general membership of VFW Post 10087 contributed significantly to the success of this program. We would also like to thank John Garvey of VFW Post 10087 for presenting the colors at the 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony. In addition, wed like to thank James and Wanda Reynolds, Jadem Padem, Helen McNabb, Mary Ivey, and Christopher Venuto for their generous donations. Our programs would also not be successful without the participation of our RSVP volunteers. Without their tireless efforts of delivering donation boxes, picking up the shoes & socks, counting and sorting each pair, and displaying at our 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony, we could not have accomplished this feat.

Even a coroner gets surplus guns Associated PressBATON ROUGE, La. Doug Wortham used a Defense Department giveaway program for law enforcement to stock his office with an assault rifle, a handgun and a Humvee even though the people in his custody are in no condition to put up a fight. Theyre dead. Wortham is the Sharp County, Arkansas, coroner. He said the Humvee helps him navigate the rugged terrain of the Ozarks foothills, but he struggled to explain why he needs the surplus military weapons he acquired more than two years ago. I just wanted to protect myself, he said. His office isnt the only government agency with limited policing powers and a questionable need for high-powered weaponry to take advantage of the program. While most of the surplus weapons go to municipal police departments and county sheriffs, an Associated Press review shows that a diverse array of other state and local agencies also have been scooping up guns and other tactical equipment no longer needed by the military. Military-grade weapons have gone to government agencies that enforce gaming laws at Kansas tribal casinos and weigh 18-wheelers in Mississippi, to the Wyoming Livestock Board and the Cumberland County Alcoholic Beverage Control Board in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Other military surplus items have been bestowed on an animal control department in Cullman County, Alabama; a harbormaster in Dartmouth, Massachusetts; and the California Assemblys Sergeant-atArms. The Pentagons 1033 Program has been controversial; the White House ordered a review of it and similar programs in August after a deadly police shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, led to clashes between protesters and officers decked out in combat gear. Under the 1033 Program, thousands of lawenforcement agencies have acquired hundreds of millions of dollars in weapons and other military castoffs. Among them were dozens of fire departments, district attorneys, prisons, parks departments and wildlife agencies that were eligible to join the program because they have officers or investigators with arrest powers. Guns, armored vehicles and aircraft only account for a fraction of the equipment up for grabs. Several agencies surveyed by the AP said they never asked for any weapons and only enrolled in the program to get free office equipment and other common items that wouldnt be deployed on any battlefield. The agencies receiving firearms are difficult to pinpoint because the federal agency overseeing the program only releases county-level data on weapons transfers, citing security concerns. But some participating agencies or state officials who coordinate the program were willing to disclose their inventories. Wortham was qualified to enroll in the 1033 Program because Arkansas coroners have arrest powers. Elected to his first term as coroner in 2010, he obtained a .45-caliber pistol and an M16 rifle in 2012 after getting a Humvee the previous year. He said he is trying to arrange for a local police department to take the two weapons. Ebola Associated PressA hazardous material cleaner removes a wrapped item from the Dallas apartment where Thomas Eric Duncan, the Ebola patient who traveled from Liberia to Dallas, stayed last week. New Ebola concerns spread WASHINGTON Raising fresh concern around the world, a nurse in Spain on Monday became the first person known to catch Ebola outside the outbreak zone in West Africa. In the U.S., President Barack Obama said the government was considering ordering more careful screening of airline passengers arriving from the region. In dealing with potential Ebola cases, Obama said, we dont have a lot of margin for error. Already hospitalized in the U.S., a critically ill Liberian man, Thomas Duncan, began receiving an experimental drug in Dallas. But there were encouraging signs for an American video journalist who returned from Liberia for treatment. Ashoka Mukpo, 33, was able to walk off the plane before being loaded on a stretcher and taken to an ambulance, and his father said his symptoms of fever and nausea appeared mild. In Spain, the stricken nurse had been part of a team that treated two missionaries flown home to Spain after becoming infected with Ebola in West Africa. Medical workers in Texas were among Americans waiting to find out whether they had been infected by Duncan, the African traveler.VA fires four senior executives WASHINGTON The Veterans Affairs Department has fired four senior executives as officials move to crack down on wrongdoing following a nationwide scandal over long wait times for veterans seeking medical care and falsified records covering up the delays. The dismissals are the first since Congress passed a law this summer making it easier for veterans to who experience delays to get care outside VAs nationwide network of hospitals and clinics. The law also made it easier for the agency to fire senior officials suspected of wrongdoing, shortening their appeals process to 28 days. Among those fired are a top purchasing official at the Veterans Health Administration, directors of VA hospitals in Pittsburgh and Dublin, Georgia, and a regional hospital director in central Alabama.New York cancels phone booth planNEW YORK New York City is scuttling a project that would have installed in payphone booths thousands of transmitters that could track peoples movements. A private company named Titan had received city approval to install the beacons, which emit signals that are picked up by smartphones. It has put in 500 of them. The beacons could be used to send advertising onto peoples cellphones. And they could be used to track the movements of the cellphones owners. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A22TUESDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Nobel Associated PressNorwegian scientists May-Britt and Edvard Moser, pictured when they received the Fernstrom award in 2008, will share the Nobel Prize for Medicine 2014 with the U.S.-British John OKeefe. Nobel Prize for work on brainSTOCKHOLM How do we remember where we parked the car? And how do we figure out a shortcut to work when theres a big traffic jam? The brain, it turns out, has a GPS-like function that enables people to produce mental maps and navigate the world a discovery for which three scientists won the Nobel Prize in medicine Monday. Husband-and-wife scientists Edvard Moser and May-Britt Moser of Norway and New York-born researcher John OKeefe were honored for breakthroughs in experiments on rats that could help pave the way for a better understanding of human diseases such as Alzheimers. We can actually begin to investigate what goes wrong in Alzheimers, said OKeefe, a dual BritishAmerican citizen. He said the findings might also help scientists design tests that can pick up the very earliest signs of the mind-robbing disease, whose victims lose their spatial memory and get easily lost. The Nobel Prizes will be handed out Dec. 10, the anniversary of prize founder Alfred Nobels death in 1896. This years Nobel announcements continue today with the physics award, followed by chemistry, literature and peace later this week. The economics prize will be announced next Monday.Islamic State hits Syrian border townMURSITPINAR, Turkey Islamic State fighters backed by tanks and artillery pushed into an embattled Syrian town on the border with Turkey on Monday, touching off heavy street battles with the towns Kurdish defenders. Hours after the militants raised two of their Islamic State groups black flags on the outskirts of Kobani, the militants punctured the Kurdish front lines and advanced into the town itself, the Local Coordination Committees activist collective and the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. Since it began its offensive in mid-September, the Islamic State group has barreled through one Kurdish village after another as it closed in on its main target the town of Kobani, also known as Ayn Arab. The assault has forced some 160,000 Syrians to flee and put a strain on Kurdish forces, who have struggled to hold off the extremists even with the aid of limited U.S.-led airstrikes. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said about 20 Islamic State fighters managed to sneak into the eastern part of Kobani overnight, but were ambushed and killed by Kurdish militiamen. World BRIEFS From wire reports Supreme Court starts session Associated PressWASHINGTON The Supreme Court unexpectedly cleared the way Monday for a dramatic expansion of gay marriage in the United States and may have signaled that its only a matter of time before same-sex couples can marry in all 50 states. Rejecting appeals from five states seeking to preserve their bans, the Supreme Court effectively made such marriages legal in 30 states, up from 19 and the District of Columbia, taking in every region of the country. Challenges are pending in the other 20 states. Almost immediately, exuberant couples began receiving marriage licenses previously denied to them. This is the dream day, said Sharon Baldwin, a plaintiff in a challenge to Oklahomas ban, as she and her partner got their license in the Tulsa County Clerks Office. Directly affected by Mondays orders were Wisconsin, Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah and Virginia. Officials in those states had appealed lower court rulings in an effort to preserve their bans. Couples in six other states Colorado, Kansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia and Wyoming should be able to get married in short order since those states would be bound by the same appellate rulings that have been on hold. While county clerks in a number of states quickly began issuing licenses to gay and lesbian couples, in some other states affected by the courts action officials did not sound ready to give up the fight. However, their legal options are limited. Mondays terse orders from the court were contained among more than 1,500 rejected appeals that had piled up over the summer. The outcome was not what either side expected or wanted. Both gay marriage supporters and opponents had asked the court to resolve whether the Constitution grants same-sex couples the right to marry nationwide. The justices did not explain why they decided to leave that question unanswered for now. They may be waiting for a federal appeals court to break ranks with other appellate panels and uphold state laws defining marriage as between a man and a woman. Or they may see little role for themselves as one court after another strikes down state marriage bans. GM uses Facebook, calls to get recalled cars fixed Associated PressDETROIT Eight months after General Motors began recalling more than 2million cars because of a deadly ignition-switch defect, less than half the owners have gotten their vehicles fixed. At first, the problem was a shortage of parts. But now the problem is people. Despite the heavy publicity surrounding the scandal, many drivers evidently havent heard of the recall or havent grasped how serious the defect is because it hasnt given them any trouble. As a result, GM has been forced to go beyond the usual ominous-sounding recall letters. It has sent out Facebook messages and made phone calls to owners of the cars, mainly Chevrolet Cobalts and Saturn Ions. CEO Mary Barra has even sent a personal letter urging people to get the switches replaced. In some cases weve gone to the owners home and gotten the vehicle, gave them a loaner, and are working to fix it, Barra said last week. GM announced in February and March that it was recalling the cars after taking more than a decade to disclose the defect, now linked to at least two dozen deaths. The switches can slip out of the run position, causing the engine to shut off. That can knock out powerassisted steering and disable the air bags. Despite recall letters that bluntly warn that the defect can lead to injury and even death and despite five congressional hearings and thousands of news stories about the furor only about 1.16million of the 2.36million affected vehicles still on the road have been bought in for repairs. Because the recalled cars are no longer produced, parts supplier Delphi Automotive had to bring machinery out of mothballs to start cranking out replacement switches. Repairs finally began in April when the replacement switches started to arrive at dealers. Last Wednesday, GM announced that Delphi had made enough to fix all the cars. Military surplus Associated PressKim Clark, senior investigator for the Wyoming Livestock Board, shows off his Colt .45 semi-automatic pistol on Thursday in Cokeville, Wyo.

Harris was banned from all team activities by the football program while authorities investigate sexual assault allegations made against him. The school said Harris has been accused of sexually assaulting a female student around 3 a.m. Sunday hours after he helped Florida rally to beat Tennessee 10-9 in Knoxville at an on-campus residence hall. The University Police Department is investigating the alleged assault and working with the Gainesville Police Department to assist with collection and analysis of fo rensic evidence. A GPD forensics crime unit truck was parked outside the residence hall Monday afternoon. We have no tolerance for sexual assault on our cam pus, university President Bernie Machen said in a statement. The university is committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for every member of the UF community. We must strive to protect all of our students from sexual harassment and assault, and do everything in our power to promote a safe learning environment. Harris, a 5-foot-11, 190-pound Miami native, has not been arrested. His attorney, Huntley Johnson, said he doesnt expect his client to be, either. We are cooperating with the investigation, Johnson said. And I would be surprised and disappointed if he ends up being prosecuted. UPD said the incident report was still being finalized and would be released in the next day or so. Ice tilted to the West in NHL Hockey is a booming business right now. After an attention-grabbing Olym pic trip and an exciting postseason for the scandal-free NHL, revenue and tele vision ratings have risen to record levels across a largely healthy, happy league. Yet the NHL ice is tilted decidedly to the West, and the continental divide might even grow this season. A few months after Chicago and Los Angeles staged an epic conference finals won by the Stanley Cup champion Kings, nearly every team on the Western side of hockeys unbalanced standings made significant offseason additions to chase the leagues twin postseason powers. Anaheim added Ryan Kesler. Dallas snared Jason Spezza and Ales Hemsky. St. Louis signed Paul Stastny. Minnesota snagged Thomas Vanek. Colorado got Jarome Iginla and Daniel Briere. Even Chicago picked up Brad Rich ards. Only the champs essentially stood pat, daring the West to catch them. It seems like the West is loading up again, Kings center Anze Kopitar said. But at the end of the day, I dont think its going to matter too much what the other teams do. Its going to matter what we do. The Blackhawks and the Kings each have two titles in the last five years, and theyre both the widely considered favorites to play for the Stanley Cup again. But when Los Angeles beat the New York Rang ers in five games in the Stanley Cup finals last year, many prog nosticators scoffed that five West teams could have beaten any East representative and the theoret ical math appears much the same this fall. The West is such a grind, Ducks defenseman Ben Lovejoy said. Theres C.J. RISAK The match-ups for the upcoming district tournaments will be de cided by weeks end. Three of these matches are criti cal, and Seven Rivers Christian will be involved in two of them. To night, the Warriors host Leesburg First Academy, a team they lost to in straight sets in the first week of the season. There are only three teams in 2A-3, with Ocala St. John Lutheran having already locked up first place with a 3-0 mark the Saints lost for the first time this season last Tuesday at Ocala Trinity Cath olic, making them 18-1 overall. First Academy is next at 1-2 (14-3 overall), followed by Seven Rivers at 0-2 (14-6 overall). There are no weak links in this district, as the teams overall re cords will attest. Certainly the War riors have improved since the seasons initial week, but theyll have to prove how much. The district race is decided, with St. John having clinched the top spot and the opening-round bye in the district tournament that goes with it. That means whatever hap pens tonight, First Academy and Seven Rivers will have a rematch, with the winner advancing to the 2A-3 final against St. John. So this is actually a statement match. A win would give Seven Riv ers the momentum going into dis tricts, but to accomplish that the Warriors will need what every team needs at this time of year defense and good passing to set up kill opportunities for Alyssa Gage, Julia Eckart and Michaela Wallace. The Eagles attack goes through Emma Gray and Victoria Gause, which means Seven Rivers de fense will be tested, particularly since blocking shots at the net is not a team strength. That means digging up kill attempts and con verting them into scoring chances, which is a formula that has worked all season for the Warriors. VOLLEYBALL NOTEBOOKDecisive week in districtsSee NOTEBOOK/ Page B3 f rnrtb C.J. RISAK Its been a long time since Shannon Fer nandez and Olivia Grey didnt play on each others volleyball team. This season, Lecanto is reaping the benefits of that relationship. Since the second semester of eighth grade, weve been playing club together, said Grey. Not surprisingly, there isnt a single ability that makes either of them stand out. And thats what defines Lecantos team this season several key players who can, and do, fill a variety of roles. That the teams two captains are at the top of that list shows how valuable such players are to the team. Their time spent playing together increases their value. Theyre almost like twins, they can read each other, said Lecanto coach Alice Christian. Theyre very aware of each other on the court. Theyre both skilled, they both set very well, they both hit very well, they both serve very well, and they can play any position. As all-around good players, theyre there. Their experience playing together not only knowing what to expect before it happens, but also knowing when your teammate needs a mental boost is a message both girls are trying to send to their teammates. In 2013, mental lapses were costly for the Panthers. I think our girls have a lot more experience this season, Fernandez said. Last season was more of a rebuilding season. This season weve jelled more to gether, were able to capitalize more on our strengths. We look to each other, we hold each other up.

The Yankees won 3-2 at Cincinnatis Crosley Field. 1984 The San Diego Padres won the National League pennant with a 6-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs in the final game of the playoffs. The Padres won three straight after dropping the first two games. 1995 Edgar Martinez of the Seattle Mariners hit a tie-breaking grand slam in the eighth inning and drove in seven runs most in a postseason game to lead the Mariners past the New York Yankees 11-8 and send the AL playoff series to a decisive Game 5. 1998 Chuck Knoblauch argued for an interference call at first base instead of picking up the ball while Enrique Wilson rounded the bases and scored to break a 1-all tie in the 12th inning of the Cleveland Indians 4-1 victory at New York in Game 2 of the AL Championship Series. 2003 Florida and the Chicago Cubs set several NLCS records in Marlins 9-8, 11-inning win. The teams combined for a record seven home runs. The Marlins Ivan Rodriguez, Miguel Cabrera and Juan Encarnacion all homered in the third inning, the first time an NL team has hit three homers in one inning. And the Cubs nine extrabase hits also was an NLCS record, as were the 17 total extra-base hits. 2013 Jose Lobaton hit a solo home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and Tampa Bay staved off elimination again by beating the Boston Red Sox 5-4. Lobatons solo homer off Koji Uehara landed into the giant fish tank beyond the center-field wall. The Red Sox closer didnt allow a home run in his last 37 regular-season appearances.

One by one, the camera panned over the faces of the Kansas City Roy als, who had lined up along the first-base line for introductions before Game 3 of their AL Divi sion Series. When it settled on Brandon Finnegan, the crowd roared just a little bit louder. On one hand, it made perfect sense. Finnegan has been down right stellar in the playoffs, pitching four sharp innings and earning a win. Hes provided the power left-handed arm out of the bullpen that the Royals knew they would need if they were to make a deep run. On the other hand, it made lit tle sense at all. This is a guy that few fans knew anything about six weeks ago, and virtually no body knew anything about six months ago. Its definitely a shock to me, said Finnegan, who began the year leading TCU to the College World Series and could end it by leading the Royals to a very dif ferent World Series. Its been a whirlwind, Fin negan said, but its been a blessing and a lot of fun. The 21-year-old first-round pick could be a poster child for rousing rookies taking the base ball playoffs by storm this year. On the Royals alone, hes joined by young flamethrower Yordano Ventura, infielder Christian Colon and speedy utility man Terrance Gore. With the exception of Ventura, none of them played much in the regular season. Giants reliever Hunter Strick land, who skipped Triple-A on his way to the big leagues, and struck out Washingtons Ian Des mond on a 100 mph fastball with the bases loaded to end the sixth inning Friday. While he gave up two solo homers in the seventh, the Giants still hung on for a 3-2 victory in their NL Division Se ries opener. Stricklands 23-year-old team mate, Joe Panik, had five hits in his first 10 playoff at-bats. He made his major league debut in May and batted .305 in 73 games. In the other National League series, St. Louis outfielder Ran dal Grichuk homered off the Dodgers Clayton Kershaw in his first postseason plate ap pearance on Friday. His 22-yearold teammate Marco Gonzales earned the win when the Cardi nals held on, 10-9, in Game 1. When it comes down to it, it is the same game, Panik said. You have to be more fine with the little things. When the pres sure gets on you, tell yourself to stay within yourself. He did that sublimely in Game 2 on Saturday night. San Francisco was trailing 1-0 with two outs in the ninth in ning, and Nationals starter Jor dan Zimmermann had retired 20 batters in a row. Panik came to the plate representing either the tying run or final out, and he worked a walk to extend the game. He later scored to force extra innings, and the Giants ulti mately won 2-1 in 18. Its fun to watch a guy whos confident in himself, said Gi ants catcher Buster Posey, no stranger to doing big things at a young age. He understands what type of player he is. It looks to me like hes got one of those swings thats just extremely con sistent. Youre going to see a lot of line drives and base hits. Hes been huge for us. So many young players have been huge in so many situations over the years. Relief pitcher Trevor Rosen thal helped the Cardinals to the postseason as a wide-eyed rookie two years ago, and was dynamic in helping them to the World Series last season. Another reliever, Francisco Rodriguez, had never won a major league game before win ning five of them in the 2002 playoffs, helping the Angels win the championship. Tigers ace David Price made his big league debut on Sept. 14, 2008, as a reliever for Tampa Bay. He would later be the win ning pitcher in Game 2 of the AL Championship Series, and then pitched 3 1/3 innings of relief against Philadelphia in the World Series. On that same Rays team was current Royals ace James Shields, who happens to see a little bit of similarity between Price and Finnegan in their late-season successes. Finnegan has done a phe nomenal job, Shields said. Just the composure he has on the mound and the fire he has out there, and it definitely reminds me a lot of David Price when he came up. David always had that competitive attitude and never wanted to lose. Turns out that is an attitude shared by a lot of rousing rookies. Its tough enough to make your big league debut, Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer ex plained, but to be fresh for a month a month fresh in the big leagues and come into a playoff situation, a do-or-die situation like that, it shows a lot. Associated Press rfntb b rfnt br SAN FRANCISCO Doug Fister pitched seven shutout innings and the Washington Nationals took advantage of Madison Bumgarners one off-target throw, staving off elimination in the NL Division Series with a 4-1 win against the San Francisco Giants on Monday. Fister dazzled again in San Francisco, helping the Nationals cut their deficit to 2-1 in the best-of-five series and ending the Gi ants 10-game postseason winning streak that started with Game 5 of the 2012 NL Champi onship Series against St. Louis. Washington scored two runs on Bumgar ners throwing error in the seventh inning to end the aces 21-inning scoreless streak. Bryce Harper punctuated the victory with a solo homer in the ninth. Really it came down to every pitch, Fis ter said. Fortunately a ball bounced our way. Drew Storen allowed the first two batters to reach in the bottom of the ninth but shook off his postseason struggles, allowing a run in closing it out as Washington forced a Game 4 tonight. Now, the 96-win Nationals will send lefthander Gio Gonzalez up against San Fran cisco right-hander Ryan Vogelsong. On a day Bumgarner had been nearly un touchable, his 21-inning postseason score less streak ended on his own miscue. Now, the Giants must wait another day to try to eliminate the Nationals. Bumgarner fielded Wilson Ramos twostrike sacrifice bunt between the mound and the first-base line and fired to third rather than going for the sure out at first. Bumgarners throw sailed wide of Pablo Sandovals outstretched glove and bounced all the way to the tarp along the left-field wall before rolling over the bullpen mounds where two relievers were warming up. Sandoval nearly did the splits trying to make the play and stayed down in pain as the two runs scored. Trainers checked on the third baseman and he remained in the game. Asdrubal Cabrera followed with an RBI single. He spent the final eight innings watching the Giants 2-1, 18-inning victory Saturday night after his ejection for arguing a called third strike. Fister outpitched Bumgarner at AT&T Park for the second time in four months after a June gem, leaving behind the fright ening memory of his October outing here in Game 2 of the 2012 World Series. Fister took a line drive to the right side of his head that day while also opposing Bumgarner but stayed in the game and carried a shutout into the seventh before Detroit lost 2-0 and was swept. Fister hardly needed that Japanese good luck figurine that appeared in the NL East champions dugout Monday morning cour tesy of backup catcher Jose Lobaton. The right-hander, who grew up about two hours away in the Central Valley city of Merced, gave up four hits, struck out three and walked three. Storen, the beleaguered closer who gave up the tying run in Game 2, allowed Bran don Crawfords sacrifice fly in the ninth be fore finishing the 2-hour, 47-minute game for his first save. It was a far cry from Game 2, which took a postseason record 6:23. Harpers three postseason homers are the fourth-most before age 22 behind Mickey Mantle, Miguel Cabrera and Andruw Jones, all with four. Associated Press f rrfb Dodgers to go with Kershaw on short rest in Game 4 ST. LOUIS The Los Angeles Dodgers will go to ace Clayton Kershaw on three days rest in tonights Game 4 of their NL Di vision Series against the St. Louis Cardinals.

All these huge, physi cal teams that skate very well. We can have another great regular season, and it wont matter if we dont have the toughness to win in the playoffs. The Western Conference has won six of the last eight Cups, and the two East winners were stretched to a full seven games in the finals. Although Boston, Pittsburgh, Montreal and Tampa Bay return strong clubs, league MVP Sidney Crosby and the rest of the Easts stars realize theyll have to go West to win a title. The West is where its at right now, and it runs in spurts, Buffalo general manager Tim Murray said. The West ern teams are good teams. Theyre big. Theyre strong. Someone is going to have to dethrone L.A. to say the West is not the best. While the other 29 teams get to work on that project, there are plenty of in triguing subplots to the season. With labor peace and no momentum-killing Olympic break, the NHL is back on a normal schedule this winter. Many players believe the qual ity of games will rise with fewer back-to-back sets and less disruption. Six teams have new head coaches, with Peter Laviolette taking over in Nashville for Barry Trotz who moved to Washington and Willie Desjardins helming Vancouvers re building project. The highest-profile job belongs to Pittsburghs Mike John ston, a 57-year-old NHL coaching rookie who must gain the trust of Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to spur the underachieving Penguins back into Cup contention. The NHL reduced its slate of out door games from six to two this sea son, hitting only Washington, D.C., and Californias Bay Area, while adding an old-fashioned indoor All-Star weekend for Columbus in January. The league and the players union also are inching toward reviving the World Cup of Hockey, likely celebrat ing a 2016 return for the summer showcase event. The league made some minor rule tweaks, notably banning the spin-orama move on penalty shots and shootouts a huge disappointment for the few players capable of doing it effectively. The NHL also instituted slightly bigger fines for players caught diving and for their coaches, who will be charged for repeat offenders on their rosters. The AP Top 25 Team Recor d Pts Pv 1.

Now for 5A-6, which will feature the match that will decide the framework of the district tournament when Crys tal River hosts Lecanto. On Sept. 16 at Lecanto, the Pan thers handed Crystal River its only district loss in three straight sets. The Pirates will try to even that score and the standings atop 5A-6 at 6 p.m. tonight. In 2013, Citrus, Crystal River and Lecanto tied for first in the district standings at 4-2. The Pirates should be inspired to attain that goal again. This shapes up as a match-up of strength against strength. Both teams boast two of the areas strongest out side hitters Cassidy Wardlow for Crystal River, Annalee Garcia for Le canto and both are solid at the net, offensively and defensively. The districts top setters will also be present, the Pirates Kaite Eichler and the Panthers Shannon Fernandez. Bottom line: This could go either way. Lecanto has a marginal edge in experience, Crystal River has the home-court advantage. Emotion could be decisive, who can use it and control it the best. Area leaders TEAM RECORDS: Lecanto, 12-4 overall, 5-0 in 5A-6; Crystal River, 13-7 overall, 4-1 in 5A-6; Citrus, 6-10 overall, 1-4 in 5A-6; Seven Rivers Christian, 14-6 overall, 0-2 in 2A-3.

NOTEBOOK Continued from Page B1 Its unclear how long the investiga tion will take, but it almost certainly means Jeff Driskel will start Saturday nights game against LSU. Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was not charged after a woman said he sexually assaulted her in December 2012. It took several months for the State Attorneys Office to complete its investigation before an nouncing the Seminoles QB would not be charged because a lack of evidence. Prosecutors cited inconsistencies in the evidence and the womans story. Winston continued to play during the investigation. Florida suspended Harris almost immediately Monday after the allega tion was made. Harris was in position to be named the starter Monday, but Florida can celed its weekly media available with coach Will Muschamp because of the investigation. Driskel hasnt played turnover-free football since the season opener and really struggled the last two games. The fourth-year junior completed 39 percent of his passes for 142 yards, with a touchdown and five intercep tions against Alabama and Tennessee. Muschamp benched Driskel near the end of the third quarter against the Volunteers, and Harris led the Gators (3-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) to 10 points on his first two possessions. Florida held on to win, extending its winning streak in the series to 10. Muschamp declined to name a starter after the game and suggested he could use two quarterbacks the rest of the season. Harris surely would have been the popular pick. He has completed 4 of 6 passes this season for 165 yards and two scores, showing pocket presence and more mobility than Driskel. HARRIS Continued from Page B1 to Olivia to help me back up. Were very encouraging toward each other. We feel a lot of responsibility, being seniors, so close to being district champs, we really need to support each other to help support the team. And theres no doubting their min imum objective for the season: I think our goal this year definitely is to be district champs, Grey said. Since weve been here, our sopho more year we were runners-up to West Port. Then districts got rear ranged and now its more of a true county district. It was our goal last year too, but I think this year its much more attainable. They also know saying what they want and obtaining it are very differ ent, with plenty of formidable obsta cles along the way. That, too, was an unneeded and unwanted lesson learned last season when they tied for first in 5A-6 during the regular season, but failed to reach the dis trict final in tournament play. So is vengeance a motivational fac tor? I think a little bit, they an swered in unison, both of them smiling. The skills on the Lecanto team, currently 12-4 overall and 5-0 in 5A-6, are present. Focusing them to enable the team reach its goals is their job. Theyre very positive, very en couraging, on and off the court, which makes a big difference, Christian said. They help jell the team. They take their responsibilities se riously. Asked what her teams strengths were, Grey replied, Our closeness on the court, how well we work together. I think individually you have a lot of very good skill sets that, as a team, makes us much stronger than we have been in the past. A lot of us have played club before, and thats really improved our skills, so we have a much stronger team. There have been sacrifices that needed to be made. For one, Fernan dez has evolved into the teams pri mary setter. It was a little difficult, because usually Im more of a hitter and this year Ive hardly been hitting at all until recently, she said. But it defi nitely keeps me moving on the court more than hitting does. Its a much more challenging position. But then again, making such sacri fices is hardly surprising consider ing whos making them. After all, thats what has given Lecanto at least a tie for the regular season dis trict title once again.

Jaxson de Ville held one of Pittsburghs famed yellow Terrible Towels next to a homemade sign that read TOWELS CARRY EBOLA during Sundays game. Team president Mark Lamping said the Jaguars had no prior knowledge of the sign and will handle the matter internally. Lamping said improvisa-tion and humor have both been key elements to the character of Jaxson de Ville, especially when he performs at home games. On Sunday, the person who has played Jaxson de Ville over the past 20 seasons made an extremely poor decision in that regard. Lamping added that, We extend our sincerest apologies to anyone who was offended. Curtis Dvorak has worn the cat costume since the mascots inception in 1996.Dolphins Shelby suspended in wake of arrestDAVIE Miami Dol-phins defensive lineman Derrick Shelby has been suspended indefinitely in the wake of his arrest on misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest and tres-passing at a nightclub. Shelby was suspended hours before Mondays practice for conduct detri-mental to the team. The Dolphins will gather more information on the arrest before making a final de-termination on disciplinary action, coach Joe Philbin said in a statement. Shelby was arrested around 2 a.m. Saturday at a Fort Lauderdale club after refusing to leave, po-lice said. He was released from jail on a $100 bond. Shelbys attorney said his client is innocent. A third-year veteran, Shelby has played in all four games as a reserve this season.Cardinals Dwyer pleads not guilty to hitting wifePHOENIX Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer pleaded not guilty to charges that he assaulted his wife during two arguments in July at their Phoenix apartment. Dwyer appeared at an arraignment hearing Mon-day in Maricopa County Superior Court. He is charged with felony aggra-vated assault and eight misdemeanors, including assault. Investigators say Dwyer broke his wifes nose with a head-butt during a July 21 argument and engaged in a dispute the following day in which he punched his wife and threw a shoe at his 17-month-old son, who wasnt injured.Police used stun gun on Vikings DT JohnsonMINNEAPOLIS A po-lice report shows Minneap-olis officers used a chemical spray and a stun gun on Vikings defensive tackle Tom Johnson after he refused to leave a downtown club.

He was charged with misdemeanor counts of trespassing and disor-derly conduct. From wire reports NFL BRIEFSNo. 1 FSU could be down three starters TALLAHASSEE Topranked Florida State could be missing three starters when the Semi noles play at Syracuse on Saturday. Coach Jimbo Fisher an nounced Monday center Austin Barron is out with an arm injury and will be replaced by redshirt freshman Ryan Hoefeld. Leading receiver Rashad Greene suffered a concus sion in last weekends 43-3 win against Wake Forest and has not been cleared to return. Run ning back Karlos Williams injured his ankle during the game and is in a walking boot. Redshirt sophomore Mario Pender would re place Williams if he is un able to play and freshman Dalvin Cook would be the primary backup. Pender and Cook have run for a combined 382 yards and five touchdowns. If I had to give a per centage, I would say yes Williams will miss the game, Fisher said. But its how guys heal and where theyre at. Sophomore Jesus Bobo Wilson could start in place of Greene, but freshman Travis Rudolph is also a candidate. Greene is four receptions from setting the school re cord for career catches. The Seminoles could also be a play away from an emergency situation at quarterback. Backup Sean Maguire is out after injuring his hand against Wake Forest. Fisher said Jameis Winstons backup would either be redshirt freshman John Franklin or walk-on redshirt fresh man Troy Cook. Neither has ever thrown a collegiate pass and Franklin has spent much of the season working as a receiver. The Seminoles have had a variety of shortterm ailments keep play ers out of games this season after being rela tively injury free during the title run. Starting defensive end and Pender both missed the N.C. State game with concussions. Nose tackle Niles Lawrence-Stample is out for the season with a torn pectoral muscle. His replacement, Derrick Mitchell, Jr., missed last week with a knee prob lem and cornerback P.J. Williams has missed a game with a hamstring issue. Youre always con cerned, but ... theyre not pulls and tears, Fisher said. When you run a bunch of big guys into each other, things break sometimes. Thats just ball. You get a bunch of bodies fall ing around out there, that happens. ... Sometimes the gods smile on you, sometimes they dont. That doesnt mean you still cant have success. Youve got to have a plan.Associated Pressrfnf tbfr btt tnntnt trbnt Dolphins may get back six DAVIE Healthier than theyve been since the season began, the Miami Dolphins should benefit from a wave of reinforcements Sunday against Green Bay. As many as six players might rejoin the starting lineup, and all practiced Monday when the Dol phins reconvened fol lowing their bye week. Running back Know shon Moreno practiced for the first time since he was sidelined by an elbow injury in Week 2. Also back are two start ers expected to play Sun day for the first time this season, safety Reshad Jones and Pro Bowl cen ter Mike Pouncey, whose comeback could involve a switch to guard. Others returning from injuries are middle linebacker Koa Misi (ankle), defensive tackle Randy Starks (back) and guard Shelley Smith (knee). The bye came at a pretty good time, re ceiver Mike Wallace said. Its going to be good for our team. We havent seen these guys to gether like this in a long time. Im excited; I know our whole team is excited. Absent on Monday was reserve defensive line man Derrick Shelby, suspended indefinitely in the wake of his weekend arrest on misdemeanor charges of resisting ar rest and trespassing at a nightclub. Cornerback Cortland Finnegan and receiver Brandon Gib son also sat out. Even so, there was a dramatic net gain in manpower, which is es pecially welcome as the Dolphins (2-2) prepare for perhaps their tough est opponent so far. Green Bay (3-2) has won its past two games by a combined score of 80-27. The reinforcements mean lots of depth-chart reshuffling this week. You want to get these guys up to speed as quickly as you possibly can, coach Joe Philbin said. Some look great, some not so much. Weve got to see where they are and how much they can be used in a game. Moreno practiced with an elbow brace and said hell wear it in a game if necessary. His return buoys a ground game that has been a strength even in his absence. It felt good to get out there on the field and work out a little of the rust, he said. Moreno led the NFL with 134 yards rushing in Week 1. Pouncey, returning from hip surgery in June, should help an offensive line that is much im proved over last season. His replacement, Sam son Satele, has played well enough to prompt speculation hell remain at center while Pouncey moves into the lineup at guard. Whatever position Im playing, its going to be for the better of the team, Pouncey said. Well see. Its coach Philbins decision. Pouncey played mostly guard for the Florida Ga tors but has been at cen ter since being drafted by the Dolphins in 2011. Guard is my posi tion, Pouncey said. I was kind of forced to play center when I got drafted here. The defense is getting a boost with the return of Misi, Starks and Jones, who was suspended for the first four games for violating the NFL policy on performanceenhancing substances.

Inside:Best Foot Forward/C2 Ear, Nose & Throat/ C3 Navigating Cancer/ C4 000J8DT MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleDynabody Fitness Club aqua-aerobic instructor Vickie Reed leads her class Monday morning at the club in Inverness. Reed, diagnosed with breast cancer three years ago, says she has benefitted greatly from exercise during her recovery. MEGANCARELLA CorrespondentFitness instructor Vickie Reed never expected a breast cancer diagnosis three years ago. With no family history and a very healthy lifestyle, breast cancer was the last thing on the then 54-year-olds mind. A mammogram and then a biopsy indicated stage 1 cancer. A lumpectomy and radiation therapy followed. Reed believes in the power of exercise. As an instructor at Dynabody Fitness Club in Inverness since 2004, shes seen firsthand the benefits for her clients of all ages and health conditions. Reed teaches water aerobics, Pilates, strength training and Silver Sneakers classes designed for senior citizens. After her surgery, she was determined to get back to exercise, and work, as quickly as possible. She began as a student three weeks post-surgery, taking Silver Sneakers classes while sitting in a chair. From no weights to light weights, she began to build strength and endurance. At home, she did basic stretching and tried other techniques to regain flexibility in her left arm and shoulder. I would take my fingers and walk them up a wall, she said. Each day Id get a little higher. Her doctors were impressed with her methods and her rapid improvement. Five weeks after surgery, she was back to teaching her classes, with some modifications. She continued her teaching schedule through her entire sixweek radiation therapy regimen. Research supports Reeds instinct regular exercise during breast cancer treatment can reduce depression, lessen fatigue and improve quality of life. It can also help to prevent the cancer from recurring. The American Cancer Society recommends that women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer exercise for about four hours each week, not only to improve quality of life, but also to lower the risk of breast cancer recurrence and the development of other cancers. Exercise improves blood flow, which has a lot to do with healing, said James Lapid. A physical therapist at Seven Rivers Outpatient Rehab, Lapid has treated many breast cancer patients during his 20-year career. Exercise helps reduce the pain and inflammation that can follow breast cancer surgery, he said. With a mastectomy, many women also have muscle and lymph nodes removed, causing pain and swelling. After surgery, a woman still needs to comb her hair, get dressed and do the normal activities of daily living. Exercise can improve a persons outlook and general well being so she feels more able to cope with treatment and recovery. Some patients also experience nerve pain known as allodynia. In these cases, patients feel pain from simple sensory stimulation that normally wouldnt cause pain. A light touch or movement, for example, can be interpreted by the brain to be painful. These factors can cause a patient to experience fatigue in three ways, said Lapid: physical fatigue, which has to do with muscles; neurological fatigue, which is unexplained discomfort, or allodynia; and mental fatigue. Mental fatigue is the major thing here, said Lapid. You cant sleep; do daily activities, hobbies, sports. Plus, youre cooped up at home. Physical therapy and exercise can improve all three factors. Just going out to PT or exercise, having that interaction helps, he said. Early physical therapy and exercise helps in other important ways, said Lapid. Post-surgery, the body develops scarring and adhesions in soft tissue and connective tissue, which can cause pain and discomfort. We can use techniques to break down the scarring and focus on stretching exercises and moderate to intense strengthening. Exercise during chemotherapy and radiation has benefits as well, he added. Chemo and radiation attack healthy cells as well as cancer cells. Exercise assures that the body will have proper nutrients because of improved blood flow. This adds healing elements and when theres healing, strength returns, along with function and activity. When Lapid first started treating breast cancer patients, such exercise wouldnt have been possible. But advances in surgical techniques and pain management have improved things immensely. Because of early detection and minimally invasive procedures, patients can actually exercise with minimal to moderate intensity quite soon after surgery, he said. Back in the day, a woman who had a mastectomy would be in a sling for a couple of weeks. By that time, the scar tissue had already invaded. Exercise improves a womans self-image as well. Exercise and activity are good for mental health, he said. People know they arent dealing with this on their own, that there is help and support out there. Reed agrees. Exercise kept me strong and positive. It got me out of my own head. After my surgery, part of me wanted to just curl up and be alone and protect my left side. But youve got to get back out and live your life. Dont stay home. Get active. Post-surgery exercise a boon to improvementActive recoveryA
The lymphatic system is the part of the circulatory system that helps transport lymphocytes to fight infection and filter intracellular fluid that escapes from and returns it to the circulatory system. Compromise to the lymphatic system can lead to edema known as lymphedema. Edema is a general term describing a build up of fluid outside our cells and circulatory system absent of any lymphatic damage or compromise. The lymphatic system can become compromised primarily through inherited characteristics or secondarily due to injury or stress, or as a side effect of medical therapy. Secondary lymphedema of the upper extremity can be a side effect of breast cancer treatment from insult of the axillary lymph nodes that may be removed or damaged as a result of biopsy or surgical insult from lumpectomy, mastectomy or metastasis, and radiation therapy. Swollen, puffy fingers, forearms, or the entire upper extremity may be a result. Physical therapy with manual lymphedema therapy, compression gradients and positioning techniques are some treatments for upper extremity edema. Swollen, achy, tender, stiff legs, ankles and feet are classic signs of lower extremity edema. Lower extremity edema can be a result of compromised vein circulation, blood pressure medication, thrombus or blood clot, heart disease and kidney failure to name a few. Chemotherapy treatment, hormone replacement therapy and steroids used in treatment of breast cancer can result in edema in the lower extremity, as well. Docetaxel (Taxotere, Docefrez) is an anti-mitotic intravenous agent used in the treatment of breast, prostate, ovarian and some lung cancers. This agent interferes with microtubular function within cancer cells leading to their death. Use of this agent may lead to the development of temporary edema in the lower extremity, also. Development of edema in the lower extremity should be relayed to your oncologist. Treatments for lower extremity edema can be suggested after your oncologist establishes the edema is a side effect of treatment and not due to another serious issue, such as renal or cardiac compromise. Proper diet and nutrition can play a role in reducing edema in the extremities. Avoid cooking with salt or MSG. Try to get some aerobic exercise if you are able and advised by your oncologist. Elevate the legs when resting. Try to avoid sitting for long periods with the legs dependent. The use of medial grade support or compression stockings can help a great deal if indicated. Stockings are not a favorite of patients because they can be hot, uncomfortable and difficult to don and doff; however, stockings are the best treatment for edema, in my opinion. Pneumatic compression pumps are another option, but they are time consuming and must be used consistently. Diuretics or water pills can be used to encourage the kidneys to spill more water into the urine, reducing the fluid in the body. This would then pull excess water from the legs, thus reducing edema. Diuretics, though convenient in a pill form, make a nearby bathroom an inconvenient necessity as they increase urinary output. If you experience any symptoms of lower or upper extremity edema, consult with your oncologist, of course.David B.

The public is welcome. Caring for an individual with a developmental disability (DD) will always present its own unique challenges, but most families, teachers and other caregivers will agree that behavioral problems cause more concern and stress than almost any other disabling condition. And, for those caring for DD individuals, the behavioral problems often come in addition to an intellectual disability, autism, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, or any combination thereof. Teaching appropriate behavior is not just a concern for parents of young children, but for caregivers of adults. Other rapidly expanding areas of concern are aging populations with behavioral problems linked with dementia, and dually diagnosed individuals, those with both a developmental disability and a diagnosed mental illness. The presentation will be followed by a short meeting of the Key Center Family Connection. The CCLEC is at 5521 Buster Whitton Way, on the Lecanto campus of the Key Training Center.

The passing of the comedian Joan Rivers has grabbed our attention. Headlines in the newspaper and on TV have likely also stirred some fears and concerns about safety of outpatient surgery. First of all, with regard to Rivers passing, it is too early to say what exactly occurred during her endoscopy. Im sure that information will be made public, as there is an ongoing investigation. Let me also say that that day during that week when Joan Rivers had surgery, there were many successful and safe outpatient surgeries which occurred in New York and elsewhere in the United States. As an ear, nose and throat surgeon, the majority of my cases and procedures are performed in the office or ambulatory surgery centers (otherwise known as outpatient surgery centers). Endoscopy is a common procedure and has increased during the past 20 to 30 years and the percentage of procedures being done in this setting is increasing. The majority of surgical procedures are done in the outpatient setting with a great deal of success and safety. There are a number of reasons why patients select the outpatient surgery setting for their procedure. Privacy, ease, efficiency and cost are some of the reasons. But, admittedly, there are patients who are better suited for the hospital setting. Those would be people who have complicated medical histories and would be at more risk. The hospital setting provides them a safe environment where they can get immediate care. That being said, surgery centers are not unsafe at all. They are accredited by organizations that accredit hospital operating rooms and they are equipped to handle cardiac emergencies. The difference is they would have to transfer a patient to a hospital should an event occur, like what happened to Joan Rivers. The typical outpatient surgery setting center usually starts the day at 7 a.m. and most patients are home by noon, and all are usually completed by 5 p.m. More personalized attention, one-on-one with nurses, convenience of a flexible schedule and a decreased exposure to hospital-based infections are some of the other benefits from a surgery center. Since outpatient surgery centers are not exactly new, there are many years of data and studies in research that suggest the complication rates are very low, if the procedure is done in a properly accredited facility. Currently, we have two hospitals in our county with outpatient surgery departments and several freestanding facilities in the center of the county. Types of anesthesia, performed at these facilities, includes local anesthesia or numbing the area to be treated, as well as conscious sedation, which involves an IV administered intravenous medication that can be combined with local anesthesia, as well. Deeper sedation including general anesthesia, which means the patient is asleep, is also used in these facilities. Typically, the anesthesia decision is made by the anesthesiologist as well as the surgeon, taking into account the patients age and medical condition to make sure that it is safe. Orthopedic and eye doctors use block procedures, which can be used to completely numb an extremity or the eye to be worked on. I can assure you the tragedy of Joan Rivers will not undo the surgery center and its ability to deliver safe and effective care. There have been and there will always be a majority of surgical cases that will do well and patient outcomes will be fine. But there is always a degree of risk undergoing any type of procedure, whether it is in the hospital or the outpatient facility. If you are contemplating surgery, discuss your concerns with your surgeon and your anesthesiologist. Do a little research to make sure your facility is certified by an accreditation group such as JCAHO, which is a nationally recognized entity used by hospitals and surgery centers. There is no 100 percent guarantee you cant have a complication or problem, particularly if there are other medical issues going on, but you can make the procedure less risky by making sure you have the right surgeon, the right facility and the right care, do your homework and dont be afraid to ask a few questions.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

This week, we will mention and discuss in some detail the more common types of brain tumors. Tumors that begin in the brain tissue are known as primary brain tumors. This distinguishes them from secondary tumors, or those which metastasize from other parts of the body to the brain. Primary tumors of the brain are typically classified based on the type of tissue in which they begin. The most common types of brain tumors are gliomas, which begin in glial tissue. Glial tissue is basically the supportive tissue of the brain. There are many different types of gliomas. The most common gliomas are known as astrocytomas. Astrocytomas arise from very small cells known as astrocytes, and can grow anywhere in the brain or the spinal cord. In adults, the astrocytomas typically begin in the cerebrum, which is the larger, more superior portion of the brain. In children, gliomas more often occur in the brain stem or the lower portion of the brain where it tapers to form the spinal cord. They can also be seen in the cerebrum and the cerebellum of children. A very aggressive or poorly differentiated form of an astrocytoma is known as a glioblastoma multiforme. Another type of glioma is known as an ependymoma. Ependymomas usually develop in the lining of a portion of the brain known as the ventricles. The ventricles house the spinal fluid which circulates to and from the brain to the spinal cord. Ependymomas can also develop in the spinal cord, and these tumors can develop at any age. They are, however, most common in childhood and adolescence. A third common type of glioma is known as an oligodendroglioma. Oligodendrogliomas arise in cells which produce a chemical known as myelin. Myelin is a fatty type chemical which covers and protects the nerves of the brain. These types of tumors typically arise in the upper portion of the brain known as the cerebrum, and they tend to grow very slowly. Most often, they do not spread to involve the surrounding brain tissue. Oligodendrogliomas are extremely rare, and they occur most often in middle aged adults, but have been noted in all age groups. Another common tumor of the brain which is seen most often in children is known as a medulloblastoma. Medulloblastomas develop from very primitive nerve cells which for some reason or another remain present long after birth when they should not. Most medulloblastomas arise in the lower portion of the brain known as the cerebellum, and are most often seen in children, with a frequency higher in boys than in girls. Another type of brain tumor which begins in the lining of the brain is known as a meningioma. These tumors grow from the meninges, which are a fibrous type of lining of the brain. Most often, meningiomas are benign and grow very slowly. It is not uncommon for these tumors to obtain a great deal of size before they cause symptoms. Meningiomas are most often seen and are more common in women than men between the ages of 30 and 50. This basically gives you an overview of the more common types of tumors seen in the brain. There are several other types which are seen with a very low frequency. Next week, we will discuss the generalized approach of the treatment of brain tumors.Dr. C.

NOTESContinued from Page C3 A75-year-old woman was referred to me for persistent elevation of white blood cells or WBCs. She had several blood counts or CBCs done over the past few months and all showed increased WBCs. WBCs fight against infections and so it can increase when there is an infection such as pneumonia. But if it is high for a few months without any evidence of infection, the doctor needs to look for other reasons. I examined the patient and found that her spleen was mildly enlarged. I advised a bone marrow biopsy. It was done in my office. She tolerated it well. The results were diagnostic. She has CML, or chronic myeloid leukemia. Leukemia is a cancer of the blood. Leukemia begins when normal blood cells change and grow uncontrollably. It can be chronic or acute. Usually, acute leukemia is fast growing and requires more aggressive therapy. Chronic leukemia is slow growing and requires less aggressive therapy. Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a cancer of the bloodforming cells, called myeloid cells, found in the bone marrow (the spongy, red tissue in the inner part of large bones). CML most often causes an increase in the number of white blood cells (neutrophils or granulocytes that normally fight infection). The cause of CML is not known, though researchers now understand how the disease develops from genetic changes in the myeloid cells. Environmental factors account for only a small number of CML diagnoses, and family history does not appear to play a role in the development of CML. Patients with CML have specific genetic mutation. In CML, part of chromosome 9 breaks off and bonds to a section of chromosome 22, resulting in what is called the Philadelphia chromosome or Ph chromosome. This creates one fusion gene called BCR-ABL. It is found only in the blood-forming cells, not in other organs of the body. The BCR-ABL gene causes myeloid cells to make an abnormal enzyme that allows white blood cells to grow out of control. Thus, the target is the unique protein called the BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase enzyme. There are now five different drugs available which hit this target. This targeted drug work wonders in patients with CML. I started my patient on one of these drugs called Gleevec. It is taken as a pill a day. Usually, it is well tolerated. My patient is tolerating it well. Most patients respond well and they go into complete remission. As per one study, these patients tend to live normal lives and most of them do not die due to the disease. In short, CML is becoming more like a chronic illness like diabetes. We may not cure them, but we can put it in remission and keep it under control for life.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER7, 2014 C9CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Henry Ford said, If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself. That applies to bridge partners. And for declarer, when the dummy comes down in a suit contract, it is so important that he start moving forward by counting his losers. Assuming his hand has at least as many trumps as the dummy, he looks at his own 13 cards and takes dummys high cards into account. Then, if the loser count is not too high, declarer should draw trumps as quickly as possible. But if the loser count is too high, declarer must work out how to eliminate the excess. In this deal, how many losers does South have in four hearts, given that West leads the club queen? How should he plan the play? The bidding was straightforward, North jumping to game with opening count when he found a 4-4 major-suit fit. South starts with at least five losers: two spades, one heart or two, and two clubs. But he has discards coming on dummys diamonds. Declarer takes the first trick with dummys club ace, plays a diamond to his ace, leads a heart to dummys ace, and shakes his club losers on the diamond king-queen. Then he plays a spade to his ace and leads another spade. Suppose West returns a club. South trumps, ruffs a spade in the dummy, leads a trump to his king, and plays on spades to land an overtrick. West makes his trump winner whenever he likes. Notice the commonplace concepts of discarding losers from hand and ruffing losers in the dummy.

PG-13 Manhattan Dear Annie: My daughter is getting a divorce and moving into an apartment that allows her to have two cats. The problem is, she has four cats. She asked whether I would take two of them. I live in another state. It would be difficult to get the cats here, and I dont think I can handle them. The idea of cat hair everywhere, smelly litter boxes, clawed furniture and finding cats in my bed when Im sleeping is just too stressful. And frankly, I dont want to be tied down. My husband and I are retired and travel a lot. How do we tell our daughter that we cant take her cats without causing her grief? I only want to make her happy. Love Cats, But Not Here Dear Love Cats: We know you want to please your daughter, but this request is unfair to you, as well as to the unwanted cats. You have to say no. Does she have any friends in her town who might take one or both of the cats? Is there a no-kill shelter where she could leave them for adoption or an animal rescue that could help find a foster home? Can she find another place to live where there is no restriction on the number of cats or offer her landlord a larger security deposit to cover the extra cats? Please remind yourself that the cats would not be better off with you, and then inform your daughter of your decision. Dear Annie: My father recently passed away. In his will, he left some money to my disabled daughter. My husband and I are her legal guardians and plan to put this money in a special needs trust per my fathers request. My sister feels I should share this money with her and her son, even though Dad left my sister a substantial amount of money. While we control how our daughters money is spent, we dont feel it is ours to give away. But should we give some to my sister to keep the peace? Inheritance Dilemma Dear Inheritance: If the bequest to your daughter was in your fathers will, you probably do not have the legal right to alter the terms. Since your sister has already received a substantial sum from Dads estate, we find it rather greedy that she wants to take money specifically designated for your daughters long-term care. Have the executor of the will (or a lawyer) explain to Sis that this is not possible. If it comes from a professional, it will help. Dear Annie: The letter from In Pain struck a chord with me. He said his wife refuses intimacy and wont discuss it. He says he helps around the house, makes her coffee, takes her out to dinner, sends her flowers and keeps himself in shape. Over the past few years, I have heard the same complaints from my husband. Heres whats going on in our house: My husband works a high-stress job, and even the smallest things set him off. I hear about these things all day long through his text messages, phone calls and in conversation after we both are home from work. What he doesnt realize is that these conversations have an effect on me. After listening to him vent and complain (with anger and swearing), the last thing I want to do at the end of the day is be intimate with him. All I want is a break from the stress that he passes on. I have tried to talk to him about this, but he responds with anger and frustration, and the conversations resolve nothing. I love my husband and have no intention of leaving, but there are limits to what I can tolerate. In Pain should examine whether anything has changed in his behavior. He may be unknowingly pushing his wife away. While spouses should support each other, there are still limits. We shouldnt use our loved ones as emotional dumping grounds.
