Federal health officials said the entry screenings, which will expand to four additional U.S. airports in the next week, add another layer of protection to halt the spread of a disease that has killed more than 4,000 people. Already there are 100percent of the travelers leaving the three infected countries are being screened on exit. Sometimes multiple times temperatures are checked along that process, Dr. Martin Cetron, director of the Division of Global Migration and Quarantine for the federal Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, said at a briefing at Kennedy. Cetron added, No matter how many procedures are put into place, we cant get the risk to zero. The screening will be expanded over the next week to New Jerseys Newark Liberty, Washington Dulles, Chicago OHare and Hartsfield-Jackson in Atlanta.

Koller: Get peoples voice back in govt MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerDave Koller knows the odds. Its your proverbial David and Goliath, he said. Koller, a Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives District11 race, is hoping to unseat Republican incumbent Rich Nugent in a district that sways heavily Republican. That hasnt stopped Koller, who lives in Ocala and owns a company that trains people with developmental disabilities to become employed. Theres a whole portion of our district not being represented, Koller said. We need to get the peoples voice back in our government. This is Kollers first try at public office. He said hes taking the plunge because he hears constantly from people who fell disenfranchised by the See KOLLER/ Page A9 Nugent: Reaching out to stakeholders MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerU.S. Rep. Rich Nugent doesnt claim to have all the answers. But he knows one thing: One party trying to go it alone doesnt work. For example: Nugent, along with every other Republican in Congress, voted against the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare. Nugent, RBrooksville, would like the law repealed and replaced. But even if Republicans gain the upper hand in the U.S. Senate in November, Nugent believes whatever follows Obamacare should have support from all sides. You need to have Democrats support what you do, Nugent recently told theChronicleEditorial Board.

Recycler seeks county partner MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerLECANTO Recycling these days is easy. The chore of sorting plastic containers, steel cans and newspapers is no more. Now it all goes into one container and taken to a facility where machines and workers separate the materials for sale. In a state where a law wants communities recycling 75percent of their waste by 2020, single-stream processing is the perfect system. Except for one thing: For Citrus Countys lone recycling company, its a money loser. FDS Disposal Inc., the countys largest garbage hauler, subsidizes its company, Single Stream Processing, or SSP, because there isnt enough money on the market to maintain on its own. The markets are horrible, SSP vice president and co-owner William Ray said. But hes also very aware of the state law that, while not a mandate, sets the 75percent recycling goal for counties to meet MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleFDS Disposal worker Philip Norman unloads a container of residential recyclables Wednesday morning in the Crystal River neighborhood of Copeland Park. FDS, which has a contract with the city, plans to stop recycling glass beginning in January and the company is approaching county government with a partnership proposal.

New $3.7B gas line proposed for Ala., Ga., Fla.ATLANTA A proposal to build a $3.7 billion pipeline carrying natural gas from Alabama into Florida is raising protests from Georgia landowners. Spectra Energy Partners LP and NextEra Energy Inc. want federal permission to build about 600 miles of pipeline carrying natural gas from Alabama, across southwest Georgia and toward gas-fired power plants in Florida. The firms hope to get the necessary approval in late 2015 or early 2016. The pipeline would start operating in mid-2017. Residents near Albany are protesting the plan because it would require building a pollution-emitting compression station near their homes. Media mogul Ted Turners company is opposing the plan. Former U.S. Sen Bob Grahams family is fighting plans to have the pipeline cross its cattle farm.Officers pepper spray women in hair-weave meleeORLANDO Orlando police officers used pepper spray on a crowd of women outside a beauty supply store after the women started pushing and shoving in an attempt to get inside. Police officers were called to the Beauty Exchange store Friday after a crowd outside the store grew to several dozen women. Orlando television station WKMG reported that the store was giving away free hair extensions that normally sell from $55 to $100. Surveillance video shows two police officers shooting the pepper spray at the crowd after the women ignored orders by the officers to back up. Some customers said the officers overreacted. A police spokeswoman said the pepper spray was used to gain control of the crowd.A2SUNDAY, OCTOBER12, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL/STATE 000JJ44 776 N.

TDC hosting workshops to explain tourist tax ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerCombat-wounded veterans, please park front and center designated spaces will soon be waiting for you at local businesses around the county. One hundred 12by 18inch parking signs are in the midst of being installed throughout Citrus County, thanks to Lecanto Middle School eighthgraders. Pay it forward, Citrus County, to our veterans, said American history teacher Carol Nicholas. This is our simple, quiet way to say thank you to those that have served so bravely for our freedoms. Soon, we could possibly have more than 500 signs dotting our county. As a class assignment, Nicholas and her students reached out to the Wounded Warrior Family Support Foundation and Col. John Folsom for the donation of the signs. Nick Nicholas Ford sponsored the cost of shipping for the signs. Signs that read Reserved Combat Wounded were installed by the Aaron A. Weaver Chapter 776 Military Order of the Purple Heart, veterans, students and community members Monday at Nick Nicholas Ford in Inverness, Tuesday at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Inverness and Thursday at West Coast Metal Fabricators in Crystal River. We have handicapped parking spots. Why cant we have one for combatwounded? I think everyone should have one, said Lorra Hauter, vice president of West Coast Metal Fabricators. We have a lot of veterans who were injured in the war. They have a hard time getting around and possibly are handicapped. They served our country. Why shouldnt they have their own parking spot? The Citrus County School District and Citrus County Sheriffs Office are the first Purple Heart organizations in the nation. Therefore, Nicholas said, she hopes the designated parking spaces will be of value to those who served. I thought, Why dont we have them. We should, she said. They are for anyone combat-wounded. It is going to be based on an honor system. Who would park there unless they deserve to park there? And her students hope that not only can they pay tribute to local veterans, but veterans nationwide. It is great for our county, and I hope it spreads nationally, said student Elisabeth Smith. Nicholas class has been invited to attend the Nov. 4 Citrus County Board of County Commissioners meeting. There they will formally place signs in local county and government parking spaces. For more information or to make a donation to defer shipping costs, email Nicholas at nicholasc@ citrus.k12.fl.us. ERYN WORTHINGTON/ChronicleLecanto Middle School eighth-grade students installed one of the signs Thursday at West Coast Metal Fabricators in Crystal River. Their teacher, Carol Nicholas, said approximately 100 signs will be posted around Citrus County for combat-wounded veterans. Thanks to students, wounded vets get special spot Scarecrow Fest returns to C.R.ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVERSmall ones, tall ones, young ones and seasoned ones, children of all ages enjoyed the kick-off of fall festivities Saturday at the 27th annual Scarecrow Festival in Crystal River. It may have been hot outside, but fall was in the air as sounds of laughter and excitement radiated from attendees playing old-fashioned games, eating fall foods, riding ponies and choosing pumpkins from the pumpkin patch. We enjoy attending all of the fall festivals that Citrus County offers every year, said Marilyn Bradwick of Hernando County. The Scarecrow Festival is like the beginning of it all. Then you have the Cooter Fest, Homosassa Seafood Festival and so on. I bring my grandkids with me to all of them and we just have that family time that is so important. The festival offered nonprofit groups an opportunity for fundraising and educational groups a chance to spread their messages. I picked up a voter registration form to fill out, said Jaquanda Lewis. I know it is too late for this year, but I want to make sure I am ready for the next election. And she wasnt alone in her browsing and shopping spree. Jaclynn Aubuchon began her Christmas shopping. Christmas is only 11 weeks away, she said. Why waste my time on Black Friday shopping when I can get great gifts at local festivals while supporting local merchants and Citrus County?

Todays Highlight in History: On Oct. 12, 1964, the Soviet Union launched a Voskhod space capsule with a three-man crew on the first mission involving more than one crew member (the flight lasted just over 24 hours). On this date: In 1492 (according to the Old Style calendar), Christopher Columbus arrived with his expedition in the present-day Bahamas. In 1870, General Robert E. Lee died in Lexington, Virginia, at age 63. In 1942, during World War II, American naval forces defeated the Japanese in the Battle of Cape Esperance. Attorney General Francis Biddle announced during a Columbus Day celebration at Carnegie Hall in New York that Italian nationals in the United States would no longer be considered enemy aliens. In 1984, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher escaped an attempt on her life when an Irish Republican Army bomb exploded at a hotel in Brighton, England, killing five people. In 1994, the Magellan space probe ended its four-year mapping mission of Venus, apparently plunging into the planets atmosphere. In 2000, 17 sailors were killed in a suicide bomb attack on the destroyer USS Cole in Yemen. In 2002, bombs blamed on alQaida-linked militants destroyed a nightclub on the Indonesian island of Bali, killing 202 people, including 88 Australians and seven Americans.

A provocative art exhibit featuring Barbie fashion dolls as religious figures such as the Virgin Mary and her boyfriend Ken as a crucified Jesus Christ has been canceled amid complaints and threats by angry believers, the artists behind the collection said Friday. The exhibit by Emiliano Paolini and Marianela Perelli, called Barbie: The Plastic Religion, had been scheduled to open Saturday at the POPA gallery in Buenos Aires. But the pair said they decided not to put on the show of pop surrealism or lowbrow art so as not to offend people. The 33 pieces in the collection include Barbie dolls dressed as the Virgin of Guadalupe patron saint of Mexico, and Joan of Arc, as well as a blue Kali, the extra-armed Hindu goddess of destruction. Along with Christ on the cross, Ken is also portrayed as Buddha, St. Sebastian and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We have received threats from various parts of the world, Paolini said by telephone. Its crazy ... they have misinterpreted our work. He said he and Perelli chose the popular fashion doll for the project because religion always represents Virgins with the most beautiful women; today the most beautiful woman is Barbie. The prevailing concept of beauty is often reflected in portraits of the Virgin Mary, who was portrayed with a more robust figure in Michelangelos time, and a more stylized one during the Middle Ages, the artists said. Paolini said they were baffled by the response, and insisted they themselves are religious: He has the word Dios God tattooed on his hand, and she wears a necklace featuring the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe. We have a sanctuary in the kitchen that has more saints than the Vatican, Paolini said.New documentary details Snowden leakNEW YORK With an uncommon view of history in action, a new documentary captures Edward Snowden s leak of NSA documents as it unfolded in a Hong Kong hotel room. Laura Poitras highly anticipated documentary Citizenfour premiered Friday night at the New York Film Festival. The one-of-a-kind film presents a remarkably intimate portrait of Snowden, including his first meetings with the journalists with whom he shared thousands of documents revealing the previously undisclosed collection of Americans phone and email records by the National Security Agency. Initially communicating under the alias citizenfour, Snowden reached out to Poitras, a hybrid journalist-documentarian, and Guardian reporter Glenn Greenwald. The film shows their very first meeting with Snowden and the days that followed as his revelations made international news. Snowden was charged with three felonies under the Espionage Act: unauthorized communication of national defense information, theft of government property and willful communication of classified communications intelligence to an unauthorized person. He is currently living in asylum in Russia. Members of Snowdens family attended the screening, which was received with an emotional standing ovation. His father, Lonnie Snowden told the crowd: The truth is coming and it cannot be stopped. Citizenfour will be released Oct. 24. From wire reports Associated PressPieces from the exhibit called Barbie: The Plastic Religion, by Emiliano Paolini and Marianela Perelli, stand on a table Friday in the artists workshop in Rosario, Argentina.

Associated PressPORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti Hundreds of people attended the funeral of former dictator JeanClaude Baby Doc Duvalier on Saturday, displaying lingering respect for a man who was widely reviled for repression and corruption during his 15 years in power. Mourners paused to pay their respects in front of Duvaliers coffin draped with Haitis redand-blue flag before greeting his partner Veronique Roy, his exwife Michele Bennett and their two children. Members of Haitis elite and former officials of Duvaliers regime arrived in luxury SUVs, joining more humble citizens in ill-fitting suits, and quickly filled the chapel on the grounds of the Saint-Louis de Gonzague school in the Delmas district of Port-au-Prince. Representatives for President Michel Martelly and Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe attended, as did former President Boniface Alexandre. Lamothe was out of the country, while Martelly, whose administration is considered to be close to Duvalier, was in Haiti but did not attend the funeral. After the service ended, former members of the military under Duvaliers regime carried his coffin from the chapel while a crowd chanted Long live Duvalier! Hes not dead! Jean Ronald Lerison, 20, said he attended the service at the request of his ailing father. He asked me to come, to pay respects to JeanClaude Duvalier, Lerison said, adding that his father had told him that crime was rare under Duvaliers regime and that people could sleep with their doors unlocked. Many had wondered whether the self-proclaimed president for life would receive a state funeral following his death last Saturday from a heart attack at age 63, but Duvaliers attorney announced late this week that friends and family would arrange a simple and private funeral. Duvalier became president in 1971 at age 19 when his father, dictator Francois Papa Doc Duvalier, died from a sudden illness. Baby Doc presided over a regime widely acknowledged as brutal and corrupt until he was ousted by a popular uprising in 1986. As many as 30,000 Haitians were killed, many by execution, under the regime of the two Duvaliers, according to the New Yorkbased Human Rights Watch. Marguerite Walter, 72INVERNESSMarguerite Pullen Walter, 72, peacefully passed away Thursday, Oct.9, 2014, with her family by her side. Born June 17, 1942, in Allentown, New Jersey, to Byron Bud and Marguerite Flock, Rita was very active in the Allentown High School Marching Band as a firetwirling majorette. In fact, it was at one of the football games where she met her future husband, Robert Bob Pullen Sr. The two were married in June of 1960 and had two children, Robin (Michael) Crocker of Redondo Beach, California, and Robert, and his partner Luke Frazier, of Washington, D.C. She also has two grandchildren, Benjamin and Joshua Crocker. When Bob died in 1999, Rita relocated to Inverness, Florida, and later remarried Kenneth Walter, who was a loving and compassionate partner throughout their 12 years of marriage. Rita was predeceased by her parents, siblings, Byron Flock and Betty Lou Johnson, and many family members and friends. She is survived by her brother, Jeff Flock of Chicago, as well many brothers and sisters-in-laws, nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her best friends, and the godparents of her children, Frank and Patricia Pullen. A celebration of life will be held in November at the Victory Baptist Church of Inverness, Florida. As Rita was an avid lover of music and the arts, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a scholarship being created in her name, details forthcoming in connection with Allentown High School.

federal government. I dont expect this to be an easy task, he said. Thats not a reason not to try. Koller said people want Congress to deliver a jobs bill that boosts employment. They want a higher minimum wage. Military veterans, he said, dont get services that Nugent says he can deliver. I dont believe theres a true representative there, he said. Theres a lot of lip service. Koller said he would propose a decompression boot camp for returning soldiers to help ease them back into the work place. Its a boot camp to become civilian again, he said. Its about being proactive rather than reactive. Koller says Congress keeps reinventing the same problems with the same unworkable solutions. These are not new problems. Were not facing anything new, he said. Its all politics. On the militarys role in Syria, Koller said Congress should have a say. Theres a role for us to play. We should be strengthening a coalition over there, he said. I dont think we should go into Syria without congressional approval. Its not a single mans decision. On issues specific to Citrus County, such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlifes protection of manatees or use of Three Sisters Springs, Koller admitted he wasnt up to speed. Im not as well versed as Id like to be, he said. If elected, he promised to listen to peoples concerns. I wish to be a statesman, he said, more than a politician.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright @chronicleonline.com. House. His opponent is Dave Koller, an Ocala Democrat. Nugent, who was taken back by the partisan bickering when he first arrived in Washington, said hes learned the value of broad support. He said he sponsored a mental-health spending bill with U.S. Sen. Al Franken, a Minnesota Democrat known for his liberal leanings. And he believes bipartisan support is needed to solve the nations biggest issues, from keeping Social Security solvent to fighting terrorists in Syria. Nugent also sees issues closer to home. He says hes working to find easier health care access for veterans. Nugent said hes finding answers from military vets themselves. Weve really been reaching out, asking what are the problems? Nugent said. Nugent said hed like to see Congress allocate money for rural communities to attract and keep VA doctors. A lot of rural communities are in the same position, he said. The Department of Veterans Affairs, he said, has the funding to open clinics and bring in doctors, but its bureaucracy keeps that from happening. We need a real good audit of the VA to determine strengths and weaknesses, he said. Most of the weaknesses are on the administrative side. Closer to home, Nugent urges the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to consider views of Citrus County residents before enacting rules for manatee protection or the use of Three Sisters Springs. My job is to get the federal government to listen to people and talk to the stakeholders, he said. You cant just come up with rules and ignore everybody who has a stake in it.WORLD/LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, OCTOBER12, 2014 A9 000IYXH Saturday October 25, 2014 Southern Woods Golf Club, Homosassa 9am Shotgun Start GOLFING FOR KIDS GOLF TOURNAMENT $60 Individual ~ $200 Foursome Includes green fees, cart and lunch.

That pledge from the International Monetary Funds policysetting committee comes after a week of stomach-churning swings in the financial markets triggered by growing fears that parts of Europe could be in danger of slipping into another recession. The 188-nation IMF called increasing economic growth an utmost priority and pledged to make the necessary structural changes that would stimulate greater growth. However, finance leaders have made similar promises in the past, only to fall short when trying to follow through. The commitments came in a closing statement from the IMFs steering committee at the fall meeting of the IMF and World Bank. Officials also endorsed the IMFs efforts to support three West African countries battling the Ebola crisis. Managing Director Christine Lagarde said at a news conference that the IMF has made $130million available to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, and that the IMF and other international agencies stood ready to do more. If more is needed, it will be there, Lagarde said. In addition to the $130million in interest-free loans being provided by the IMF, the World Bank is providing $400million for the Ebola efforts. In its closing statement, the World Bank policy committee said that swift and coordinated action and financial support are critical to contain the Ebola crisis. World Bank President Jim Yong Kim said that a Thursday meeting sponsored by the bank to highlight the funding needs was useful, but he stressed that the situation remained critical. We call on all countries that are watching. If you have any sense that you want to help with this epidemic, do it now, Kim told reporters at a closing news conference. International relief agencies stressed that time was critical. The speed and amount of governments pledges will make the difference between Ebola containment or pandemic, said Nicolas Mombrial, an official with Oxfam. The IMF and World Bank meetings were preceded by talks among finance ministers and central bank presidents of the Group of 20 nations, which comprise 85percent of the global economy. Those discussions focused on the recent growth slowdown and troubling signs that some countries in Europe could be close to another recession. In a comment clearly aimed at Germany, Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew told finance ministers that European countries with external surpluses and fiscal flexibility needed to do more to address weakness in demand that was holding back growth. Germany, Europes largest economy, ran a large trade surplus last year. Lew also called on China, now the worlds second-largest economy, and Japan, No. 3, to make the necessary policy adjustments to increase their own growth. A string of weak reports on economic activity in Germany, the largest economy in Europe, jolted financial markets this past week. U.S. stocks ended their worst week since May 2012, and the market turbulence served as a backdrop for the finance meetings.

Customs officials say about 150 people travel daily from or through Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea to the United States, and nearly 95percent of them land first at one of the five airports. Passengers arriving at Kennedy said the process of taking people aside for screening was orderly. They asked us a few questions, if we had been sick in the past few days, said 14-year-old Johnson Nellon, who flew from Liberia with his 17-yearold brother. One man said his temperature was taken even though his country, Niger, does not have an Ebola outbreak. They checked everything and everything was fine, Moussa Halidou said. Public health workers use no-touch thermometers to take the temperatures of the travelers from the three Ebola-ravaged countries; those who have a fever will be interviewed to determine whether they may have had contact with someone infected with Ebola. There are quarantine areas at each of the five airports that can be used if necessary. There are no direct flights to the U.S. from the three countries, but Homeland Security officials said last week they can track passengers back to where their trips began, even if they make several stops. Airlines from Morocco, France and Belgium are still flying in and out of West Africa. A traveler from Nigeria, which has been lauded for its successful effort to contain Ebola, said she was screened twice in her native country: once in Lagos and again in the capital, Abuja, where she had a connecting flight. Nobodys panicking in Nigeria right now, the woman, Nonye Ike, said. Everybody that has any fever or something, youll just be isolated. Im so grateful. President Barack Obama has said the new screening measures are really just belt and suspenders to support protections already in place. Border Patrol agents already look for people who are obviously ill, as do flight crews. Health officials expect false alarms from travelers who have fever from other illnesses. Ebola isnt contagious until symptoms begin, and it spreads through direct contact with the bodily fluids of patients. Cetron said more than 36,000 travelers leaving West Africa have been screened for Ebola in the last two months and none was infected with Ebola. The extra screening at U.S. airports probably wouldnt have identified Thomas Eric Duncan when he arrived from Liberia last month because he had no symptoms while traveling. Duncan, the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S., died Wednesday in Dallas. Experts say the federal government has broad authority to screen passengers and quarantine them if necessary. The CDC cited as legal authority the Commerce Clause of the Constitution, under which the government regulates trade with foreign countries. The 1944 Public Health Service Act also allows the federal government to take action to prevent communicable diseases, which include viral hemorrhagic fevers such as Ebola, from spreading into the country.A10SUNDAY, OCTOBER12, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE NATION/WORLD ADVERTISING For information about how your business can advertise on this page please call 352-563-5592.

Temperature checks of passengers arriving from three West African countries experiencing the Ebola outbreak, along with other screening measures, will begin Saturday at New Yorks John F. Kennedy International Airport and expand over the next week to four other major American airports. The measures may seem intrusive, but are legally permissible because of the governments broad authority in matters of public health and border control, experts say. Its really not different in kind to security screenings you have to go through at the airport, said Michael Dorf, a Cornell University constitutional law professor. If somebody doesnt like being screened for weapons and they sue, theyre going to lose. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cite as legal authority the Commerce Clause of the Constitution, under which the government regulates trade with foreign countries. The 1944 Public Health Service Act also allows the federal government to take action to prevent communicable diseases such as Ebola from spreading into the country and between states. One can argue whether the Obama administration waited too long, but I think it would be irresponsible for the administration not to use its legal authority to protect the health of the public, said Peter Jacobson, a University of Michigan professor of health law and policy. Otherwise, why bother? Beyond the airport precautions, the government has wideranging authority to order people into isolation or quarantine when necessary, as happened with several individuals who shared an apartment in Texas with Thomas Eric Duncan, the only person to die from the disease in the U.S. The Constitution affords state governments inspection powers, and a significant 1824 U.S. Supreme Court opinion, Gibbons v. Ogden, specifically references state authority to enact quarantine laws. In addition, states have public health codes that grant authority to issue quarantine or isolation orders, though specifics vary, and governors typically have the ability to declare a public health emergency in the event of, for instance, a bioterrorism attack, Jacobson said. The CDC has said it issues a few isolation orders a year which separates sick people from those who arent ill and usually for individuals arriving from other countries with infectious tuberculosis. A federal quarantine, which separates people exposed to a communicable disease but who arent showing symptoms, is very rarely used. Theres very little in the way of strong limits against issuing the orders, except for the advice and best judgment of government public health experts, said Wendy Mariner, a Boston University health law professor. When were thinking of these issues, we use them as a prevention measure of last resort, Mariner said. And thats because they would only be useful in a situation where there is a very dreadful disease that is very easily transmitted and for which we have no vaccine or treatment. A U.S. citizen who presents a heightened risk of disease upon arrival in the United States has a legal right to re-enter the country and be safely quarantined, said Lawrence Gostin, a public health law expert at Georgetown University. That same guarantee would not apply to non-U.S. citizens, but as a practical matter, giving them immediate care might be safer than turning them away and putting them on a plane back home. Still, theres no question that the airport screening taps into a broader debate about balancing the governments authority to protect public health against the obligation to uphold civil liberties especially if the measures were made more intrusive, such as drawing blood. Those issues do surface occasionally in the courts, as in a U.S. Supreme Court decision last year that said police usually must try to obtain a search warrant before ordering blood tests for drunken-driving suspects. Jacobson, at the University of Michigan, said that though he believed the screening measures were justified, it was imperative that U.S. citizens maintain the right to challenge quarantine or isolation orders in court.

in just six years. So Ray has an idea. Hes suggesting that SSP and the Citrus County government form a public-private partnership to expand recycling, which in turn will help meet the recycle goal and at the same time extend the life of the landfill. We want to keep this thing alive and we need their support, Ray said. Ray hasnt given the county any formal proposal and he is meeting this week with acting County Administrator Jeff Rogers to discuss the idea. However, based on county emails, SSP is proposing the county buy the equipment it needs to expand recycling services. Based on some estimates, the cost of those upgrades could go as high as $2million to $3million. Ray said nothing yet is on the table. What we have to offer are ideas for a publicprivate partnership, he said. Commissioner Scott Adams, who co-owns a garbage hauling business that competes with FDS, said he doesnt think partnering with Rays company is a good deal for county residents. Sounds like a bailout to me, he said. Ray said that isnt the case. Were not looking for a handout, he said.County: SSP losing moneyFDS, the county landfills biggest customer, started Single-Stream Processing Inc. in September 2009. Of its 35,000 customers, 16,000 are using the SSP recycling services, including residents and businesses in the city of Crystal River. SSP also accepts recycling materials brought from other haulers, including Waste Pro Inc., which has the county contract to service the 16 drop-off recycling sites throughout the county. Ray said he invested more than $5million into the facility. But much of the equipment, he said, was already old when he bought it. We started small, dealing with a small amount of volume, he said. Weve outgrown the equipment that we have. According to county emails, SSP government affairs director Randy Messer met with county solid waste director Casey Stephens in August and presented a request that included a $256,000 bailer that the company had already purchased but was hoping for county reimbursement. Stephens, in an email to acting public works director Larry Brock, said SSP was eager to work out an arrangement with the county. ... SSP Single Stream Processors has been lobbying for some county help with respect to their recycling business, Stephens wrote. According to sources with SSP, they have been in operation for 43months and have not turned a profit in any month. In a separate email, Stephens told Brock that SSP was looking for the county to purchase various pieces of equipment, including sorting screens, front-end loader and two forklifts. It suggested the county buy 2acres of adjacent land for expansion, and purchase 45,000 65gallon curbside recycling carts. In return, the landfills life would be extended because less garbage is being deposited in it. Plus, expanding recycling would help the county reach the state 75percent recycling goal by 2020. Ray said both objectives are advantageous to the county. He said since SSP began operating, 15,723 tons of garbage have been diverted from the landfill to recycling. About 13tons of material a month is recycled through his facility, he said. Market prices have dropped. Plastic bottles go for about $300 a ton. It used to be in the thousands, Ray said. Fiber materials in paper, cardboard and cartons make up 40percent of his materials. When SSP first started operating, it received $125 a ton for fiber. Now its $60 a ton, Ray said. The biggest sellers are milk and laundry detergent jugs, but they comprise a small amount of his materials. County Commissioner Joe Meek said he wants to hear details of Rays proposal, but he wont support something unless theres an obvious return to the county. We should always be open to new ideas, Meek said. Ray said hes only offering the county an option. If they say no, he said, well continue doing what were doing.LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, OCTOBER12, 2014 A11 000JESP 000JGIQOctober 30 & 31, 2014(Thursday & Friday evening only)at the Crystal River Preserve State ParkCall about Jack-O-Lantern Contest!

William Ray, vice president and co-owner of Single Stream Processing Inc., or SSP, said the commodity for glass has all but disappeared. I cant give it away, he said. Hes also had workers compensation issues with employees who, though they wear protective gloves, are cut from shards of glass while separating materials. SSP and the county had an arrangement for the company to provide fine crushed glass to use as road bed material within the lined areas of the landfill to avoid heavy equipment getting stuck in mud. However, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection told county officials it wouldnt consider the use of crushed glass toward the 75percent recycling goal, according to a memo Stephens sent Brock on Thursday. Still, glass is on the list of materials the state wants recycled. Ray said he and Stephens agreed to make a joint announcement this month to ban glass from recycling bins. Ray sent a notice in September to the city of Crystal River, where FDS has the hauling contract, saying that the recycling trucks would no longer pick up glass after Oct.1. He rescinded that notice and now is saying the ban will take effect in January. County officials say they havent decided yet what to do about glass. FDS jumped the gun a little bit, county spokeswoman Tobey Phillips said. There is no timeline. FDS DISPOSAL RECYCLING RULESThe FDS website, fdsdisposalinc.com, says it will no longer recycle glass or plastic grocery bags. Materials it will take include: Aluminum cans and baking pans.

Associated PressNEW YORK Even as they celebrate epic victories in the push for marriage equality, gay-rights activists acknowledge that other difficult issues remain on their agenda. Theres the persistent high rate of HIV infections, the struggles to expand transgender rights, and the striking fact that even in some states allowing same-sex marriage, people can lose their job for being gay. For many activists, the top priority after marriage is federal legislation that would outlaw a broad range of discrimination against lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender people. Theres no such federal law now, and more than half the states do not ban discrimination by employers or public accommodations based on sexual orientation. Theres absolutely no good reason if you can get married why you should be denied a hotel room or a job, said Fred Sainz, a vice president of the Human Rights Campaign. There will be a fair number of states where you can get married and be fired the same day for having gotten married. Anti-LGBT discrimination is among several issues likely to gain more attention following the Supreme Courts Oct. 6 decision to turn away appeals by five states seeking to preserve their bans on same-sex marriage. The number of gay-marriage states previously 19 is expected to nearly double soon, and continue growing toward what many Americans now assume is inevitable expansion to all 50 states. As a whole, the LGBT population is elated by the expansion of gay marriage. Yet according to a 2013 Pew Research Center survey, about 40percent of LGBT adults arent interested in getting married, compared to 24percent of the general public. And nearly 40percent of the LGBT respondents said the marriage issue had drawn too much attention away from other concerns. A look at some of the challenges that remain: HIV/AIDS While marriage developments have kindled joy in the gay community, news regarding HIV and AIDS is sobering. According to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, gay and bisexual men, who represent about 2percent of the U.S. population, accounted for 62percent of new HIV infections. Each year, about 50,000 new infections are tallied. A CDC report last month said only about half of gay and bisexual men diagnosed with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, received continuing treatment for the virus. Many AIDS activists and health professionals hope the infection rate can be slashed through wider use of Truvada, a drug that has proven effective in protecting uninfected men who engage in gay sex. The CDC has endorsed the preventive use of Truvada; so have many big-city health departments. Progress has been slow, said Scott Schoettes, HIV Project director for the LGBT-rights group Lambda Legal. He said some health care providers refuse to prescribe Truvada even when a patient requests it. Its a misplaced perception that anyone who wants it must be promiscuous and taking risks that they shouldnt be taking, Schoettes said. A few vocal critics notably the Los Angelesbased AIDS Healthcare Foundation argue that preventive use of Truvada is misguided. In an ad campaign launched in August, the foundation says many gay men fail to adhere to Truvadas once-aday regimen and described government promotion of the drug as a public health disaster in the making. NON-DISCRIMINATION For all their advances, activists remain deeply frustrated by the lack of federal legislation barring discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. A long-sought bill called the Employment Non-Discrimination Act finally passed the Senate last November, with 10 Republicans joining majority Democrats in a 64-32 vote. But GOP leaders in the House have not taken up the measure. Rep. Jared Polis, DColo., has been trying to orchestrate a discharge petition that would force the bill to the floor for a vote. It would need nearly 20 GOP votes as well as solid Democratic backing. We should have a federal statute, said Polis, who is gay. You shouldnt be able to be fired based on who you love. Gay-rights groups are looking ahead to the next session of Congress. Sainz of the Human Rights Campaign said there will be an aggressive push for a comprehensive LGBT civil rights bill that would seek anti-bias protections even beyond the workplace in realms such as housing and access to credit. Outside of Congress, activists will keep pressing for state and local anti-bias laws. Only 21 states have employment non-discrimination laws that cover sexual orientation; 18 also cover gender identity. TRANSGENDER RIGHTS Transgender-rights activists view their own array of causes in a good-news, bad-news context. Theres relief over some recent legal victories for people who lost jobs because they were transgender. And theres encouragement over the positive portrayals of transgender characters on TV shows such as Orange is the New Black and Transparent. Theres definitely more visibility than ever, and thats wonderful, said Masen Davis, executive director of the Californiabased Transgender Law Center. But a minority of Americans know a transgender person, and that makes us somewhat vulnerable. Davis said negative stereotypes are still widespread, and violence persists notably attacks on black and Hispanic transgender women. Another problem, he said, is that many transgender people have difficulty getting needed health care. Among the groups expanding work on transgender issues is the National Center for Lesbian Rights. It has represented many transgender students who felt their rights were infringed at school, and is promoting transgenderinclusive policies for student athletes. Shannon Minter, the centers legal director, said the breathtaking progress on marriage equality shouldnt weaken the broader drive for LGBT rights. Every day, LGBT people are fired from their jobs, kicked out of families, and stigmatized in their communities, Minter said. Our future work must assure that every LGBT person, no matter who they are or where they live, enjoys equality, dignity and justice.A12SUNDAY, OCTOBER12, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION 000JAXJ Festival of the Arts43rd Anniversary Fine Arts Crafts Juried Art Show Student Display Food Refreshments Free Parking Free Admission 000J7K4 This fashion show is a fundraising event ot benefit local charities and fund the numerous scholarship programs for Citrus County students supported by The Women of Sugarmill Woods FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2014 Silverthorn County Club Spring Hill TICKETS: $35.00 Includes a delicious lunch, great live entertainment, fashion show, silent auction share-the-pot drawings, and other prizes.

Associated PressCHULA VISTA, Calif. For a company that booked $12million in annual sales importing snacks like chileand lime-flavored chips from Mexico, Baja Distributors Inc.s offices were oddly quiet. There were no signs outside. Its small warehouse was almost empty. Phones went unanswered. Investigators say there was a reason for the anonymity: The business was laundering money from Mexican drug traffickers. Baja Distributors, whose executives denied laundering drug money, brought more than $17million from Mexico in 18months. U.S. front companies for cartels arent new, but U.S. officials say they took a more prominent role after Mexico capped dollar deposits in cash at $7,000 a month for businesses in 2010, later raised to $14,000. As a result, they say, cartels sought companies to deposit money in American banks and wire it back in pesos under the guise of international trade. San Diego, the largest American city on Mexicos border, became a magnet for cash coming to the country from Mexico, according to an Associated Press analysis of customs declarations since 2009. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto lifted the restrictions last month, saying the anti-money laundering measure harmed honest businesses. The move sparked concern among some U.S. officials that cartels may go back to walking into Mexican banks to deposit sacks of drug-tainted dollars. If one day you have a restriction and the next day that restriction no longer exists, one would think logically that it now becomes easier, said Joseph Burke, head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcements National Bulk Cash Smuggling Center. Pena Nietos move came two days after U.S. agents raided businesses in downtown Los Angeles fashion district that were suspected of funneling drug money to Mexico and seized $70million in cash. Drivers have always stuffed trunks with cash from drug sales in the U.S. and gone to Mexico undetected. Thats never changed but, with Mexican banks out of the picture in 2010, cartels needed other ways to convert profits to pesos to fund their operations and luxurious lifestyles. Couriers brought dollars back to the U.S. and often declared them to customs officials, as required for any amount of $10,000 or above, U.S. officials say. The Treasury Department imposed additional reporting requirements on armored car services at San Diego border crossings in August, calling it a response to Mexicos regulations. U.S. border inspectors have little power to stop cash, and money laundering charges are difficult to prosecute, which leads some to believe the scheme will continue even without Mexicos restrictions. Investigators say bringing money back and forth across the border makes it more difficult for either country to track. There was $3.73billion declared at U.S. ports of entry from Mexico last year, up from $3.15billion in 2009, the year before Mexican regulations took effect, according to the APs analysis of customs declarations. Declared money from Mexico totaled $3.96billion during the first eight months of this year. At San Diegos Otay Mesa border crossing, declared cash soared from $10.6million in 2009 to $1.17billion in 2011 and $1.78billion last year. Its unknown how much of that was legitimate trade, but the U.S. Senate Caucus on International Narcotics Control reported last year that couriers were bringing a significant amount of drug dollars to the U.S. through land crossings with Mexico. In Calexico, a border city east of San Diego, couriers came from Mexico with sacks of dollars after Mexicos regulations took effect, some on scooters, said Vince Piano, a Phoenix police lieutenant and executive director of the Southwest Border Anti-Money Laundering Alliance, a group of law enforcement officials.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, OCTOBER12, 2014 A13 000JGQQ OCTOBER 15 & OCTOBER 22 10am Tuscany on the Meadows Quality Inn 350 E.

Beverly Hills 270-8873 Pig farms rebound from virus; meat prices may drop DAVIDPITT Associated PressDES MOINES, Iowa A virus that killedmillions of baby pigs in the last year and led to higher pork prices has waned thanks to warmer weather and farmers efforts to sterilize their operations. And as pigs numbers increase, sticker shock on things like bacon should ease. Already, hog supplies are on the rise, with 5.46million baby pigs born between June and August in Iowa, the nations leading producer the highest quarterly total in 20 years and a record 10.7 surviving pigs per litter, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture report. Its a significant turnaround from a year ago when the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus was wiping out entire litters. Since the virus first showed up, the federal government rushed to give conditional approval for a vaccine and those in the industry began taking precautions, such as disinfecting trucks, equipment and clothing. Weve gotten better at managing biosecurity and establishing health protocols, said Greg Lear, a producer near Spencer, Iowa, who lost more than 800 baby pigs last December. I think Mother Nature helped us with sunshine. It doesnt like sunshine and warmer temperatures. Its clear the industry is managing the virus, but its far from eradicated. Two new cases were confirmed by South Dakota veterinary officials in the past week, bringing the states total to 38 farms. And theres reason to be cautiously optimistic, Lear said, as the virus thrives in colder, wetter environments like those found in fall and winter. Im very fearful in my mind whats coming with winter again, Lear said. As baby pigs died across the country, pork supplies dropped and prices rose, setting a monthly average retail record of $4.20 per pound the week of Aug.14 an 11percent increase over the $3.76 per pound a year earlier, the USDA said. Consumers didnt seem to be scared by the high prices, either, as demand dropped only about 3percent in the most recent quarter compared with a year ago, the USDA said. Weve been talking for some time about consumers starting to push back and we have seen that in certain degrees but not maybe what we had expected, said Lee Schulz, a livestock economist and assistant professor at Iowa State University. From a pure price standpoint, its a bit surprising that weve seen such robust demand. This years anticipated record-breaking corn and soybean harvests are playing a role in increased producer profits as well, because of a drop in the cost of feed. U.S. producers will end 2014 with an average profit of about $60 per animal, by far the best year ever, Purdue University ag economic professor Chris Hurt said. Over the past 25years, average profits have been $10.50 per animal, Hurt said. Producers are hoping to cash in by raising more hogs. Missouri reported 40,000 more sows, Iowa added 30,000, and Texas, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana and Oklahoma each added thousands, the USDA said in a Sept.29 report.

Second day of protests take shapeST. LOUIS More than 1,000 people gathered Saturday for a second day of organized rallies to protest Michael Browns death and other fatal police shootings in the St. Louis area and elsewhere. Marchers started assembling in the morning hours in downtown St. Louis, where later in the day the Cardinals were set to host the San Francisco Giants in the first game of the National League Championship Series. The crowd was larger than the ones seen at Fridays protests. The main focus of the march, scheduled to wind through downtown streets for several hours, was on the recent police shootings. The four-day event called Ferguson October began Friday afternoon with a march outside the St. Louis County prosecutors office in Clayton and renewed calls for prosecutor Bob McCulloch to charge Darren Wilson, a white Ferguson officer, in the Aug. 9 death of 18-year-old Brown.Spiders force family from upscale homeWELDON SPRING, Mo.

Brian and Susan Trost bought the $450,000 home overlooking two golf holes at Whitmoor Country Club in Weldon Spring in October 2007 and soon afterward started seeing brown recluse spiders everywhere, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. The couple filed a claim in 2008 with their insurance company, State Farm, and a lawsuit against the homes previous owners for not disclosing the problem. At a civil trial in St. Charles County in October 2011, University of Kansas biology professor Jamel Sandidge estimated there were between 4,500 and 6,000 spiders in the home. The jury awarded the coupleslightly more than $472,000, but the former owners declared bankruptcy, the insurance company still didnt pay and the couple moved out two years ago. The home, now owned by the Federal National Mortgage Association, was covered with nine tarps this week and workers filled it with a gas that permeated the walls to kill the spiders and their eggs. Therell be nothing alive in there after this, said Tim McCarthy, president of the company hired to fix the problem.

Car bombs kill 38 in BaghdadBAGHDAD A series of car bomb attacks in Iraqs capital killed 38 people in Shiite areas Saturday, authorities said, after Islamic militants killed a journalist working for a local television network in a Sunni province. Police officials said the first bombing happened Saturday night when a suicide bomber rammed his explosive-laden car into a security checkpoint in Baghdads northern district of Khazimiyah, killing 13 people, including three police officers, and wounding 28. The second car bombing, targeting a commercial street in Shula district in northwestern Baghdad, killed seven people and wounded 18, police said. The blast damaged several shops and cars. Also in Shula, police said a suicide car bomb attack on a security checkpoint killed 18 people and wounded dozens others.In Spain, three more under Ebola watchMADRID Three more people were under observation for Ebola in a Madrid hospital, boosting the number being monitored for symptoms to 16. A nursing assistant infected with the virus remained in serious but stable condition Saturday. The latest three are a nurse who came into contact with nursing assistant Teresa Romero, a hairdresser who attended to her and a hospital cleaner, all of whom were admitted to Madrids Carlos III hospital late Friday. A government statement said none of the 16 in quarantine, who include Romeros husband, five doctors and five nurses, have shown any symptoms.

Associated PressMIAMI Over scrambled eggs and croquettes, Andres Malave gave a lastminute pep talk to about a dozen volunteers in a Cuban restaurant before they left to meet voters. Dont just deliver a message, he said before beginning his own 3 1/2hour shift knocking on doors. Try to get them engaged. Its a strategy playing out in New England diners, Midwest truck stops and West Coast cafes: conservative organizers train and send out thousands of volunteers holding an iPad and an interest in helping fellow activists shift Americas politics to the right. They are the backbone of Americans for Prosperity, the flagship organization of the political network backed by industrialist billionaires Charles and David Koch. While the groups spending in Senate races has attracted national attention, its these less noticed field efforts that could have greater impact and help reshape the Republican Party heading into the 2016 presidential election. The organization has more than 500 paid workers in 35 states and has become one of the conservative movements best organized, most powerful outside groups. Building on the communitybased approach President Barack Obama used successfully in 2008 and 2012, it now has a political footprint unmatched among GOP-affiliated operations and is racking up legislative victories. The group scuttled efforts to raise taxes to build a downtown campus for the well-regarded zoo in Columbus, Ohio, and derailed plans in Floridas Legislature to subsidize improvements to the Miami Dolphins football stadium. It helped fend off a recall effort against Gov. Scott Walker, R-Wis., and pushed pro-business workplace laws in Michigan and Indiana. It didnt shy away from going after traditional allies, as was the case when Gov. Rick Scott, R-Fla., briefly considered expanding Medicaid, a core component of Obamas health care law. Americans for Prosperity mobilized supporters, the Republican-led Legislature quickly rejected the idea and Scott dropped his proposal. Potential presidential contenders have taken notice. GOP Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas spoke at the groups annual summit in August. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., headlined the Koch brothers seminar for major conservative donors this year. Americans for Prosperity sprung up in 2004 but has gained heft during the past two election cycles. Its budget has grown from less than $3 million in 2004 to more than $130 million for the 2012 election cycle. In many places, the group has more trained and paid operatives than the traditional political parties have. Nowhere is this more obvious than Florida, where the group has 10 offices, its single largest field operation. Associated PressAndres Malave walks the street of a west Miami neighborhood on Aug. 12. He started the day huddled with about a dozen volunteers in a Cuban restaurant, offering them a lastminute pep talk before they went out to meet with voters.

Americans for Prosperity builds political machine Associated PressBAGHDADOn the western edge of Iraqs capital, Islamic State group militants battle government forces and exchange mortar fire, only adding to the sense of siege in Baghdad despite airstrikes by a U.S.-led coalition. Yet military experts say the Sunni militants of the Islamic State group, who now control a large territory along the border that Iraq and Syria share, wont be able to fight through both government forces and Shiite militias now massed around the capital. It does, however, put them in a position to wreak havoc in Iraqs biggest city, with its suicide attacks and other assaults further eroding confidence in Iraqs nascent federal government and its troops, whose soldiers already fled the Islamic State groups initial lightning advance in June. Its not plausible at this point to envision ISIL taking control of Baghdad, but they can make Baghdad so miserable that it would threaten the legitimacy of the central government, said Richard Brennan, an Iraq expert with RAND Corporation and former Department of Defense policymaker, using an acronym for the Islamic State group. The siege fears in Baghdad stem from recent gains made by the Islamic State group in the socalled Baghdad Belt the final stretch between Anbar province, where the group gained ground in Janaury, and Baghdad. The group has had a presence in the Baghdad Belt since spring, Iraqi officials say, but recent advances have sparked new worries. Last week, Islamic State group fighters seized the towns of Hit and neighboring Kubaisa, sending Iraqi soldiers fleeing and leaving a nearby military base with its stockpile of weapons at risk of capture. The U.S.-led coalition recently launched two airstrikes northwest of Hit, U.S. Central Command said Saturday. Perhaps most worrying, Islamic State group fighters now battle Iraqi forces in Abu Ghraib, the town home to the infamous prison of the same name thats only 18 miles from the Green Zone, the fortified international zone protecting Baghdad-based embassies and government office. To the south of Baghdad, security forces fight to hold onto the town of Jurf al-Sukr, and to the north, one Sunni tribe has held onto the town of Duluiyah despite an Islamic State groups onslaught. However, Islamic State group fighters have taken over a number of towns in Diyala province, east of Baghdad. Yet authorities believe an assault to take Baghdad remains unlikely. An Iraqi military and intelligence official each told the AP that as many as 60,000 government security personnel, including soldiers and police officers, are currently in position outside the city along the Baghdad Belt. A plot by the Islamic State group to enter Baghdad in September through the Shiite alKazimiyah neighborhood was foiled, the officials added. Associated PressSURUC, Turkey Kurdish militiamen are putting up a fierce fight to defend a Syrian town near the border with Turkey but are struggling to repel the Islamic State group, which is advancing and pushing in from two sides, Syrian activists and Kurdish officials said Saturday. The battle for Kobani is still raging despite more than two weeks of airstrikes by the U.S.-led coalition targeting the militants in and around the town. The strikes, which are aimed at rolling back the militants gains, appear to have done little to blunt their onslaught on Kobani, which began in mid-September. Just outside the Turkish town of Suruc, across the border from Kobani, some 200 people gathered at a cemetery Saturday to bury two Kurdish fighters who died in the fighting. The Syrian Kurdish border town is the latest focus of the Islamic State group, which has rampaged across northern Syria and western and northern Iraq since the summer. On Friday, the militants seized the so-called Kurdish security quarter an area in the towns east where Kurdish militiamen maintain security buildings and where the police station, municipality and other local government offices are located. A senior Kurdish official, Ismet Sheikh Hasan, said clashes were focused in the southern and eastern parts of the town. He said the situation was dire and appealed for international help. We are defending (the town) but ... we have only simple weapons and they (militants) have heavy weapons, he said in a call Friday night with The Associated Press. They are not besieged and can move easily. U.S. Central Command said it conducted airstrikes north and south of Kobani over Friday and Saturday using fighter jets and bombers Kurds struggling to defend town Worried Iraqi capital sees militant push

EXCURSIONS Page A15SUNDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE JOURNALOFAJOURNEY Editors Note: This is the next installment in a continuing series of articles from the travel journals of Peter and Leslye Graulich. After a brief hiatus, they appear weekly in the Chronicle Excursions section.Day 39Day 39 finds us at sea traveling north toward Cairns, Australia, the Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. Most passengers are excited about this stop as the reef is huge, about 133,000 square miles, the worlds largest coral reef, teeming with marine life in some of the most pristine waters on earth. Our lectures for the next two days all concern the reef. Our first lecture is an overview of the Great Barrier Reef divided into two parts and our second lecture is composition of the reefs. After crossing the Pacific Ocean, we have all developed our at-sea schedules and everyone is pretty well settled into the routines. The time that we have spent together with the other passengers on the small ship has allowed us to develop more friendships and acquaintances than is normally possible on the mega ships. After dinner and a movie, we take our evening walk under the stars and retire.Day 40Day 40 is, not surprisingly, very similar to day 39. After breakfast we attend the final two lectures about the reef. We also attend a lecture of various options for visiting the reef, diving, fishing etc. there are many, many tours available and the choices are nearly unlimited. Leslye and I have chosen to spend the morning in the city of Cairns and to travel out to the reef later in the day. Day 40 ends with us having traveled 12,681 miles since we left Fort Lauderdale.Day 41On the morning of day 41 we arrive at the harbor in Cairns. We wander into town to have a look around and find a very clean, friendly Colorful group of Austrailian residents of the deep. Beautiful underwater visit in Australia Story and photos by Peter Graulich See JOURNEY/ Page A17 Associated PressBENTONVILLE, Ark.Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art opened in 2011 in Wal-Marts hometown, Bentonville, Arkansas, with a respectable collection of work by famous artists from Norman Rockwells Rosie the Riveter to a George Washington portrait by Gilbert Stuart.But the museum has just opened a massive exhibition of contemporary art called State of the Art that could be a game-changer. The museum is sometimes mocked by critics from outside the region for its location and Wal-Mart connections its permanent collection was funded by Wal-Mart heiress Alice Walton but the new show represents a serious effort to introduce contemporary art to a mainstream audience far from the rarefied galleries of hipster neighborhoods and urban centers. State of the Art showcases more than 200 works by 102 artists from around the country. All the works were created since 2011, and the show resulted from a 100,000-mile road trip by museum president Don Bacigalupi and curator Chad Alligood to discover underrecognized artists. Crystal Bridges has already established itself with a major national presence due to the quality of its collection of American art from colonial times to the present day, said Alligood in an interview. What State of the Art does is extend that story. Many of our audience members come from around here. For many of them, this is their first time having an experience in an art museum. Were introducing contemporary art to this audience. The works are engaging, surprising and memorable. They include Lowrider Pinata, a life-size car made from colorful pinata-style paper and cardboard, by Justin Favela; Delita Martins The Dream Keeper, which brings elements of magical realism to a portrait of a black figure in work clothes, a bird perched on one hand; and Alberto Aguilars Sensitive Equipment, which invites visitors to hit a balloon back and forth using melodic hand-bells as bats. Associated PressThis September 2014 photo provided by Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art shows visitors at the opening of the museums contemporary art exhibit State of the Art in Bentonville, Ark. The installation shown is one of more than 200 pieces in the show. The textile piece by Jeila Gueramian is called Its You and includes crocheted quilts.

A16SUNDAY, OCTOBER12, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: I am desperate for advice about my husbands lies. We have been together for 27 years. From the beginning, he knew that complete honesty is very important to me. I told him about my past relationships, and he told me about his. In all of our time together, he has maintained the same stories, but with enough variation to make me question which parts of these stories are true. Heres the whopper: He told me he had five children with five different women, two of them sisters. As far as I know, he has never been in contact with any of them. Now that we are getting older, I cant help but wonder about these children and any possible grandchildren. I worry that one of them might need medical information or possibly a transplant one day. Now my husband says he made up the story about being with two sisters. He claims it never happened and that he only said it to make himself seem more experienced in my eyes. So which is the lie? I am having a difficult time trying to deal with this new information. I have even suggested we get counseling together, but he refuses. Have I been living a lie for all these years? Old Married Lady in Lodi Dear Lodi: We have no problem believing that your husband made up at least some of the stories about all those other women. But abandoning ones children is hardly a reason to boast unless, of course, there are no children at all. The problem is, you dont know, so your trust in him is unmoored. This is more serious than he realizes. Trust comes from honesty, and this is the foundation of the relationship. Tell him he owes years of back child support and you expect him to do the honorable thing and pay up. Offer to contact these various women, which will help determine the truth of his stories. Then get some counseling for yourself, with or without him. You could use some guidance on how to proceed.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar.

Susie J. Lees silent video portraits of the faces of workingmen, called Fracking Fields, offer mesmerizing closeups of faces in real time as their emotions wordlessly register. John Salvest stacked secondhand romance novels so that the book bindings, organized by color, spell out FOREVER in giant letters. Ghosts of Consumption, by Pam Longobardi, features man-made debris from the ocean. Jeila Gueramians textile piece, Its You, creates a ceiling of colorful crocheted blankets. And the show opens with the Mom Booth, by Andy Ducett, in which real moms who are local volunteers sit at a table wearing aprons, knitting and dispensing hugs and advice. Reviews of the show have been mixed. TheWall Street Journalcalled it PG-13, suggesting that its so accessible, it rules out art with provocative themes. Blair Schulman, a Kansas City-based art critic who contributes toThe Huffington PostBlog, said he loved the works, but took issue with how it was curated. It was a lot of good work in a very large space. ... If they broke it into smaller exhibitions over a few years, it would have better represented what the artists were making. But Alligood says Crystal Bridges didnt create this show for critics. We expressly went into this project to shake up the paradigm of contemporary art that its somehow not of the realm of everyday experience, that its inaccessible or disengaged from our lives or that its inexplicable. In fact, artists across this country are engaged in conversations in ways that welcome the viewer in. Admission to Crystal Bridges is free, and the museum is drawing more than 500,000 visitors a year, 60 percent from Arkansas. At the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, 30 miles away, art department chairwoman Jeannie Hulen says the museum has changed our students lives. Its completely changed the way we teach. It has upped the game and given them a wider, more worldly view of what art is. As for State of the Art, she says, Its a positive show, its a very optimistic show, its a big show. Its important for them being a new museum to be thinking about contemporary art. It is accessible, but there is a conversation about accessibility thats happening in the art world now, that art is not just for artists, its not just for the elite. Its for people. The curators, she said, chose artists that want the viewer to leave with something they could understand. I dont think thats wrong. We finally acquired all of the material needed to replace the east side railing on the trestle. All of this work has been done by our Wednesday work crew. The work crew worked from boats and from the trail itself to remove the old wooden upright supports and railing, then replaced them with modern recycled plastic. They worked with the Park Service staff on the design and logistics. As of now, all of the work has been completed and it looks great. Thanks, crew! At our regular Rails to Trails meeting on Sept. 13, several of the items that were discussed included the need for replacement of several old pieces of equipment. We have a small generator that is no longer fixable and needs to be replaced. There is also a need for a bigger and better chainsaw to be able to work on larger trees and limbs. It seems lately all of the trees that need to be worked on are the much larger ones. We also need a larger pruner to tackle those vines that grow like wildfire and seem to clump together. Harry Mitchell, Fort Cooper State Park manager, requested a new blower to expedite the blowing of the Trail at a greater speed and efficiency. The old blower has been repaired repeatedly and cannot work anymore. With all of the wind that we have, the Trail has to be blown more often. Our Floral City bathroom project has hit a snag and is on hold for the present time. Dont look for it by years end as mentioned before. Mr. Mitchell announced that the restroom project in Floral City is on hold because construction and engineering costs were underestimated by $40,000. The request for additional funding has been forwarded to Don Forgione, director of Florida Recreation and Parks. News flash! Don Forgione, director of Florida Recreation and Parks attended the 20th annual Rails to Trails Bike Ride and he told us that the funding for the restroom in Floral City had been found and the project would be going forward.

Lots of interesting things in the stores and considering we are halfway around the world many of those interesting things come from places we have not heard of. We travel to the information center and discover that the boat ride out to the reef is approximately 3 Hours Each Way and it is now almost noon. We sign up for a brief trip with a helicopter ride out to the reef and the boat back. Leslye chooses a guided snorkel trip of the reef and I choose scuba. We board the helicopter and fly about 20 minutes and land on a pontoon barge somewhere out on the reef. We transfer over to the dive boat and get our gear, suit up and enter the water. I have made many dives in my life, beginning with my first in 1962 while I was in the United States Army. I dont believe I have ever seen more beautiful water anywhere in the world than what I observed on the Great Barrier Reef. The reef is relatively shallow, the water temperature perfect, and the visibility unlimited and marine life is everywhere. Leslye snorkels down to a giant clam, about 5 feet in diameter and touches it and receives a response. After about three hours on the reef we pack up our gear, have an Aussie barbecue lunch and rode the boat back to shore. I have now taken 1,540 photographs and we have traveled 1,592 miles since we left Fort Lauderdale. Next up: Rabaul, Papua New Guinea.Peter Graulich first left the country in 1961 for six weeks, travelling Europe and the United Kingdom with his family, returning on the S.S. United States. He has since gathered more than 300 days of cruising with Princess Cruises. Since then, he has visited 97 countries, every state in the United States and every national park. Peter and his wife, Leslye, both originally from New Jersey, came to Florida after he retired from the Camden, New Jersey, police department and she retired as the office manager for a urology practice in Philadelphia. They live in Celina Hills, Inverness, 3 miles from Petes best friend from high school. Special to the ChronicleThis is known as an iron ranger. It was thought that if there was a way for trail users to make a donation to the Trail, this would enable it to happen. This was requested by Fort Cooper State Park Manager Harry Mitchell and Trail Specialist Diane Otten, and was approved by the board and membership. It is installed in concrete in front of the restrooms. Most parks charge an entrance fee to support upkeep and amenities, but there is no fee to use the Withlacoochee State Trail.

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

All interested veterans are encouraged to call Mac McLeod at 352-746-1384, email cmcleod670@earthlink.net, or call Bob Crawford at 352-270-9025 or email baddogusmc@tampabay. rr.com.

I think hes handled himself very well. I think hes gone in there and done a lot of good things, just watching from afar, Flacco said. I think the team has oper ated very well when hes been in there. Hes come into a situa tion that hasnt necessarily been incredible and hes han dled himself very well and led that team. On Sunday, Flacco will get his first close-up view of the second-year pro, whos trying to make the most of another opportunity to prove hes the Bucs QB of the future. The Bucs (1-4) havent made the playoffs the past six seasons and have changed coaches three times in five years. Glennon started 13 games as a rookie, going 4-9 but not dis playing enough to convince incoming coach Lovie Smith that the answer to improving the leagues least productive pass ing attack was already on the roster. Instead, Smith signed career backup Josh McCown in free agency and made him the starter. Glennon will make his third straight start this week against the Ravens (3-2), filling in for the 35-year-old McCown, who sprained his right thumb during Tampa Bays 56-14 loss to At lanta three weeks ago. The 2013 third-round draft pick responded by throwing a game-winning touchdown in the closing seconds of a road victory over Pittsburgh two weeks ago. He played well again last Sunday in New Orleans, when Tampa Bay squandered an 11point, fourth-quarter lead be fore losing to the Saints in overtime. The Bucs dont have much to Ravens defense next test for Glennon See BUCS/ Page B3 Associated Presstrbfrbtfrbnnrrnbrbnnt Out of the way rfnSYRACUSE, N.Y. Distractions? What distractions? Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston ignored the controversy from a sexual assault allegation swirling around him and responded with a nearly flawless performance Saturday, throwing for 317 yards and three touchdowns as the top-ranked Seminoles beat Syracuse 38-20. He just played ball, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said. Did he ever. Winston, who scooted out of trou ble when necessary to extend plays, finished 30 of 36 and earned his fifth 300-yard passing game on the road. Its not about distractions, Winston said. Its about Florida State football. Mario Pender scored twice, on a 12-yard run to open the scoring in the first quarter and a 4-yard reception in the second as the Seminoles built a 24-6 halftime lead. Tight end Nick OLeary had a ca reer-high eight catches for 97 yards and one touchdown, while Rashad Greene returned from a concussion and caught six passes for 107 yards, becoming the schools all-time re ceptions leader. When you have multiple guys making multiple catches, thats doing what we got to do, Winston said. People cant game-plan us for one person. Florida State (6-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) has won a school-record 22 straight games, the longest streak in the nation, and 19 in a row in the conference. The Orange (2-4, 0-2 ACC) lost their fourth straight, again saddled by too many failures in the red zone, scoring one touchdown in four trips inside the Florida State 20 behind two rookie quarterbacks who pro duced 412 yards offensively but combined to throw three intercep tions. To beat the No. 1 team in the country is a very difficult task, Syr acuse coach Scott Shafer said. I really believed that we could beat this team and we didnt get that done. I saw some good things that were encouraging. The game came a day after Flor ida State University decided to pub licly detail its own timeline of See FSU/ Page B3

B2 Associated Press rffrnftfbffnfttffbf Week 7: Survival STARKVILLE, Miss. Dak Prescott ran for two touchdowns and threw for an other, leading No. 3 Mississippi State to a 38-23 victory over No. 2 Auburn on Satur day. Mississippi State (6-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) has won nine straight games going back to last season. Auburn (5-1, 2-1), the defending SEC champion, lost for the first time since last seasons na tional championship game. The Bulldogs took a 21-0 lead in the first nine minutes, but Auburn pulled to 28-20 in the third quarter. The Tigers couldnt complete the comeback, though, undone by Ricardo Louis fumble in the fourth quarter, untimely penalties and an inconsistent offense. Prescott completed 18 of 34 passes for 246 yards and ran for 121 yards. He threw two interceptions. Prescott had lots of help. Josh Robin son ran for 97 yards and two touchdowns, DeRunnya Wilson had four receptions for 72 yards, including a 34-yard touch down catch. And the defense bailed out the offense with redzone stops following turnovers. Auburns Nick Marshall threw for 209 yards, two touchdowns and two intercep tions. He ran for 100 yards. No. 5 Baylor 61, No. 9 TCU 58 WACO, Texas Chris Callahan kicked a 28-yard field goal as time expired and Baylor wiped out a 21-point deficit in the final 11 minutes to beat TCU. Bryce Petty threw six touchdown passes for the Bears (6-0, 3-0 Big 12), in cluding a 25-yarder to Corey Coleman with 4:42 left in the fourth that tied it at 58. Petty passed for 510 yards and threw two interceptions. TCU moved to midfield and faced fourth-and-3 from the Baylor 45 with 1:17 left in the fourth. Instead of punting, the Horned Frogs elected to try to keep the ball and end it in regulation. Trevone Boykin tossed a sideline fade toward Josh Doctson that the receiver couldnt come up with. TCU was looking for a pass interference call on Ryan Reid but didnt get it and Baylor took over with 1:11 left. No. 6 Notre Dame 50, North Carolina 43 SOUTH BEND, Ind. Everett Golson threw three touchdown passes to over come his three turnovers that led to North Carolina scores and Notre Dame remained unbeaten. North Carolinas Marquise Williams threw two touchdown passes, ran for an other score and caught a 23-yard TD pass from receiver Quinshad Davis late in the third quarter to give the Tar Heels a 36-35 lead. But a roughing-the-center penalty against the Tar Heels (2-4) kept alive a Notre Dame drive that led to a 9-yard TD pass from Golson to Tarean Folston. Then, Irish cornerback Cole Luke inter cepted a pass to set up Folstons third touchdown. Williams threw an 18-yard TD pass to Mack Williams with 47 seconds left, but North Carolina failed to recover the on side kick. The Irish (6-0) are at No. 1 Florida State next week. No. 7 Alabama 14, Arkansas 13 FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. Blake Sims threw two touchdown passes and No. 7 Alabama narrowly avoided its second straight Southeastern Conference loss with a 14-13 victory at Arkansas on Satur day night. The Crimson Tide (5-1, 2-1 SEC), a week after a 23-17 loss at Mississippi, struggled for much of the game fum bling four times. However, despite being outgained 335227, Sims put Alabama up with a 6-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth quar ter. Alabama hasnt lost two straight SEC games since the 2007 season, Nick Sa bans first year as coach. The loss is the 15th straight in SEC play for the Razorbacks (3-3, 0-3), who have yet to win a conference game under second-year coach Bret Bielema. Brandon Allen was 21 of 40 for 246 yards for Arkansas. No. 8 Michigan State 45, Purdue 31 WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. Connor Cook threw three touchdown passes, Nick Hill ran for two scores, and Darien Harris had a late interception return for a touchdown to help Michigan State hold off Purdue. Michigan State amassed 532 total yards. The Spartans (5-1, 2-0 Big Ten) have won four straight overall, including seven straight conference road games. Purdues Akeem Hunt scored on runs of 52 yards and 3 yards in the fourth to make it 38-31. But Harris closed out the last chance for the Boilermakers (3-4, 1-1) with his 15-yard interception return. No. 11 Oklahoma 31, Texas 26 DALLAS Alex Ross had a 91-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, Zack Sanchez scored on a 43-yard interception return and Oklahoma held on for another bounce-back victory under coach Bob Stoops, beating Texas in the Red River rivalry. Oklahoma (5-1, 2-1 Big 12) used those big returns to go ahead to stay despite only 29 total yards in the first half. Trevor Knight threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard, and Samaje Perine had a 13-yard TD run the final 20 min utes. The Sooners were coming off a loss last week at TCU. Tyrone Swoopes threw his second touchdown pass to John Harris and ran 12 yards for a score for the Longhorns (2-4, 1-2) in a span of 3 1/2 minutes in the fourth quarter. No. 12 Oregon 42, No. 18 UCLA 30 PASADENA, Calif. Marcus Mariota ran for two touchdowns and passed for 210 yards and two more scores to help Oregon rebound from its first loss. Royce Freeman rushed for 121 yards and two touchdowns for the Ducks (5-1, 2-1 Pac-12), who havent lost consecutive games since 2007. Thomas Tyner and Pharaoh Brown caught TD passes as Or egon built a 42-10 lead early in the fourth quarter. A week after a 31-24 home loss to Ari zona, Oregon had little trouble in its sixth straight win over the Bruins (4-2, 1-2), who are probably out of the national title race after back-to-back defeats. Brett Hundley passed for 216 yards and ran for a score for the Bruins, who followed up their last-minute loss to Utah by falling into a huge early hole. Paul Perkins rushed for 190 yards and Jordan Payton caught two fourth-quarter TD passes for UCLA. No. 13 Georgia 34, No. 23 Missouri 0 COLUMBIA, Mo. Hutson Mason completed 22 of 28 passes for 156 yards and a touchdown and ran for another score in Georgias first game without sus pended running back Todd Gurley. Freshman Nick Chubb rushed 38 times for 143 yards and a touchdown as Geor gia (5-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) wore down the Tigers (4-2, 1-1) early. Gurley was suspended indefinitely Thursday while the school investigates an alleged violation of NCAA rules. It was a stunning blow for Gurley, who had been making a strong case for Heisman contention. The reason for the investiga tion hasnt been disclosed, but SI.com reported that Gurley allegedly received $400 to sign 80 pieces of memorabilia on the Georgia campus. No. 16 Oklahoma State 27, Kansas 20 LAWRENCE, Kan. Tyreek Hill re turned a kickoff 99 yards for a fourth-quarter touchdown, and Okla homa State held on to beat Kansas. Daxx Garman threw for 161 yards with a touchdown an interception, and Des mond Roland ran for 87 yards and an other score as the Cowboys (5-1, 3-0 Big 12) were nearly caught looking ahead to next weeks showdown with ninth-ranked TCU. Michael Cummings threw for 288 yards and ran for a touchdown in his first start for Kansas (2-4, 0-3) since 2012. Corey Avery also ran for a score for the Jayhawks. Oklahoma State led 20-7 at halftime, but the Jayhawks rallied to tie it at 20 late in the fourth quarter in their first home game under interim coach Clint Bowen. Duke 31, No. 22 Georgia Tech 25 ATLANTA Anthony Boone threw for 123 yards and a touchdown, Josh Sneed ran for 102 yards and a score, and Duke snapped a 10-year losing streak against Georgia Tech. Backup quarterback Thomas Sirk had a couple of short TD runs for the Blue Devils (5-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Confer ence), who won in Atlanta for the first time since 1994 and showed they arent going to give up their Coastal Division title without a fight. Duke took advantage of three huge sec ond-half turnovers by the Yellow Jackets (5-1, 2-1). Justin Thomas threw a pair of interceptions one deep in Duke terri tory and Zach Laskey fumbled. No. 19 East Carolina 28, South Florida 17 TAMPA, Fla. Shane Carden led three long second-half touchdown drives and No. 19 East Carolina shrugged off a slow start to come back and beat South Florida 28-17 on Saturday night. The Pirates (5-1, 2-0) overcame a 10point halftime deficit to remain unbeaten in American Athletic Conference play and are off to their best start since 1999. USF (2-4, 1-1) faded in the second half against a ranked team for the second straight game. The Bulls were tied 3-3 at the half before losing 27-10 at Wisconsin. Carden completed 13 of 15 passes for 134 yards while leading scoring drives of 84, 86 and 79 yards on East Carolinas first three possessions of the second half. Marquez Graysons 24-yard TD run trimmed USFs lead to 17-14 late in the third quarter. Breon Allens 4-yard scor ing run put ECU ahead 21-17 early in the fourth. rfrfntb MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. It was a banner day for Carter Hucks. Thats what mattered to the Miami Hurricanes. Duke Johnson became Miamis career leader in all-purpose yards, Brad Kaaya threw three touchdown passes plus ran for another, and the Hurricanes piled up 621 yards on the way to defeating Cincinnati 55-34 on Saturday. Johnson gave the game ball afterward to Hucks, an 8-yearold who suffers from a rare blood disorder called fanconi anemia and spent most of the week around the Hurricanes. So on a day where a banner flew pregame calling for Miami coach Al Goldens firing, and another was unfurled during the game urging the ouster of defensive coordinator Mark DOnofrio, the players had plenty of perspective. He uplifted us, said Phillip Dorsett, who caught three passes for 143 yards, two of those grabs going for Miami touchdowns. He helped us at tack this game the way we did. And they did attack, with five touchdown plays of 25 yards or more, one of them an intercep tion return by Tyriq McCord. Johnson finished with 162 rushing yards on only 10 carries and Joe Yearby added 113 on eight carries for Miami (4-3), giving the Hurricanes two 100yard runners in the same game for the first time since 2003. Gus Edwards added 85 yards on the ground, including had a 40-yard touchdown run with 9:02 re maining. Playing with bruised ribs, Gunner Kiel completed 31 of 57 passes for 355 yards and three touchdowns for the Bearcats (2-3), but was also intercepted three times. Carter Jacobs had a 27-yard fumble return for a late score for Cincinnati, which got three touchdowns in the first 11 minutes of the fourth quarter. Miami got points on nine of its first 13 possessions and aver aged 11.9 yards per run and catch, the most by the Hurricanes since a win in 2000 over McNeese State. Hurricanes blow past Bearcats 55-34

The woman mak ing the accusation is considering a lawsuit. Winston wasnt charged in the case. The school also is investigating Winston for a possible code of conduct violation involving the alleged sexual assault, and the Depart ment of Education is investigating the univer sity on how it handles reports of sexual assault as a result of the case. The Heisman Trophy winner hasnt let it affect his game halfway through his second college season. This was status quo for what weve been doing and we knew this was coming, Fisher said. Our guys eliminate those things, control what they can control, and thats playing ball. Greene passed Ron Sellers (1966-68) for most career receptions at Florida State. Greenes fourth reception was a 9-yarder that set up Winstons 7-yard touchdown pass to Jesus Bobo Wilson midway through the third quarter. It was his record-setting 213th catch. The Orange were up against it from the start, playing with a quarterback making his first college start and a new offensive coordi nator. Quarterbacks coach Tim Lester re placed George McDonald as offensive coordinator early in the week and backup quarterbacks Austin Wilson and A.J. Long took over for injured starter Terrel Hunt, out 4-6 weeks with a broken calf bone. Long was 16 of 27 for 167 yards and two touchdowns to Steve Ishmael, 22 yards in the third quarter and 35 in the fourth. Long also made a rookie mistake, throwing an intercep tion deep in Florida State territory late in the third. The pick by Nate Andrews at the FSU 8 came after Wilson mishandled a punt and Sam Rodgers recovered for Syracuse at the Florida State 21. Wilson was 5 of 9 for 89 yards before leaving the game with an injury. I was happy with the way they played, Lester said. They played like I thought they would. You never know how its going to play out. Id still love to have those first-half, redzone opportunities back. Looking back now, thats all I think about. Winston guided the Seminoles to a 7-0 lead on the games opening drive, completing all five of his passes for 38 yards before Pender scored. The Orange responded with a solid drive as Wilson looked calm in his first college start. He hit Jarrod West for 13 yards, Ben Lewis for 15, and Adrian Flemming for 12 as Syracuse moved deep into Seminoles territory. The drive ended abruptly when Jalen Ram sey intercepted Wilson on the left side at the 12-yard line and returned it 27 yards. Long, a freshman who had never taken a snap in a college game, then took over and guided the Orange to a 21-yard field goal by Cole Murphy. It could have been more, but the Orange of fense, which had scored only one touchdown in the two previous games despite seven forced turnovers by the defense, again failed to punch it in. The Orange entered the game with only nine touchdowns in 19 trips inside the 20 and the trend continued after the defense forced yet another turnover. After Syracuses John Raymon recovered Penders fumble at the FSU 16, a dropped pass and an incompletion forced Syracuse to settle for Murphys 32-yard field goal midway through the second.

B4 Associated Press rfntntbfn nnfnfnfnbf NAPA, Calif. Bae Sang-moon took the lead early and expanded it late Saturday in the Frys.com Open, closing with three big putts for a 7-under 65 and a four-shot lead going into the final round. The final three holes at Silverado changed every thing. They enabled Matt Kuchar and Brooks Koepka to get back into the hunt, but only briefly because of the great finish by Bae. The South Korean was on the verge of making a sloppy bogey on the par-5 16th. Leading by two, he went into a hazard, hit a poor chip that barely got onto the fringe and then holed the 15-footer to save par. With the tee moved for ward on No. 17 to make it play about 292 yards to an elevated green, Bae hit drive to just inside 6 feet and holed that for eagle, and then made a 15-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole. He was at 16-under 200, four shots clear of PGA Tour rookie Zach Blair, who made a late birdie for a 69. Kuchar hit driver to 5 feet on the 17th for an eagle and shot a 66, put ting him in the penulti mate group and still with a shot of winning just two weeks after the Ryder Cup. Koepka had a bird ie-birdie-birdie finish with his power, he only needed a 3-wood on the 17th to reach the green and shot 67. They were at 11-under 205, along with Scott Langley (69) and Martin Laird (71). Phatlum leads by three in Malaysia KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia Thailands Pornanong Phatlum birdied seven of the first 10 holes and finished with a 6-under 65 to take a threestroke lead in the LPGA Ma laysia. Phatlum, winless on the LPGA Tour, had a 14-under 199 total at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club. Japans Ayako Uehara was second after a 69. South Koreas So Yeon Ryu, the second-round leader, had double bogeys on Nos. 17 and 18 for a 72 to drop into a tie for third at 10 under with compatriot Chella Choi (68), Chinas Shanshan Feng (69) and New Zealands Lydia Ko (70). The 17-year-old Ko can take over the No. 1 ranking from Stacy Lewis if she wins and Lewis ties for 12th or worse. Lewis, the first-round leader after a 65, had a 72 to fall into a tie for 20th at 5 under. She had a double bogey at the par-3 seventh, where she also dropped a shot in the second round. Triplett up by two at SAS CARY, N.C. Kirk Triplett holed out from 143 yards for eagle on the par-4 18th hole to take a two-stroke lead in the Champions Tours SAS Championship. Triplett, the ACE Group Classic winner in February for his third victory on the 50-andover tour, finished with a bo gey-free 9-under 63 to reach 11-under 133 at Prestonwood. Paul Goydos and Tom Leh man were tied for second. Goydos, the Hawaii Champi onship winner last month for his first senior title, had a 67. Lehman shot 68. First-round leader Guy Boros was tied for fourth at 11 under, following a 66 with a 70. Fred Funk also was 11 under after a 64. Boros faltered with bogeys on 14 and 15, while Funk bird ied five of the last eight holes. Boros is making his second tour start after turning 50 last month. Levy leads by three in Portugal VILAMOURA, Portugal Frances Alexander Levy had a three-stroke lead in the Por tugal Masters after the com pletion of the second round in the event cut to 54 holes be cause of rain. Levy shot a 10-under 61 on Friday, while most of the play ers finished the second round Saturday. He had an 18-under 124 total at Oceanico Victoria. Belgiums Nicolas Col saerts was second after a 67. He opened with a 60. Sang-moon leads by four strokes in Napa Associated Press bnnfnn nnnn nff nn BALTIMORE Following an other successful road show, the Royals are heading back to Kansas City with momentum and history on their side in the AL Championship Series. Alcides Escobar doubled in the go-ahead run in the ninth inning, Mike Moustakas extended his home run-binge and the Royals remained perfect in the playoffs, beating the Baltimore Orioles 6-4 Saturday for a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven matchup. Lorenzo Cain had four hits, scored twice and drove in a run for the wild-card Royals, who are 6-0 in the playoffs this year, including 4-0 on the road. Kansas City was 47-34 in away games during the regular season. Moustakas homered for the fourth time in five games as the Royals won their ninth straight in the postseason, a string dating way back to the 1985 World Series. Game 3 is Monday at Kauffman Stadium. Former Oriole Jeremy Guthrie will start for the Royals against either Wei-Yin Chen or Mi guel Gonzalez. Manager Buck Showalters team has lost two in a row at Camden Yards for the first time since June 28-29, and now the Orioles must buck history to earn its first pen nant since 1983. No club has ever won a best-of-seven LCS after drop ping the first two games at home. After squeezing out an 8-6 win in 10 innings on Friday night, the Roy als again took apart the Baltimore bullpen with a late uprising. With the score tied at 4 in the ninth, Omar Infante beat out an in field roller off Darren ODay, the losing pitching for the second straight day. Zach Britton entered, and Mous takas laid down a bunt that moved pinch-runner Terrance Gore to sec ond. Alcides then sliced an oppo site-field grounder inside first base to bring home Gore. Two batters later, Cain hit an RBI single. For the second time in two games, Wade Davis earned the win and Greg Holland got three outs for the save. Holland struck out Steve Pearce with a runner on to end it. Moustakas, the No. 9 hitter in the lineup, hit a solo homer that put Kansas City up 4-3 in the fourth. Al though he homered only once in the last 49 games of the regular sea son, Moustakas now stands tied with Willie Aikens for most homers by a Royals player in a single post season. Neither starter figured in the decision. Baltimores Bud Norris allowed four runs and nine hits in 4 1/3 in nings. Royals rookie Yordano Ven tura left in the sixth with tightness in his right shoulder after giving up four runs and six hits. Kansas City used three straight hits, the last a two-run bloop single by Eric Hosmer, to go up 2-0 in the first inning. In the second, three walks and a sacrifice fly by Caleb Joseph netted Baltimore a run without benefit of a hit. The Royals made it 3-1 in the third on an RBI double by Billy Butler, but Game 1 star Alex Gor don looked at a third strike with two outs and two runners in scoring position. For the day, Gordon struck out four times and stranded four run ners in scoring position. The Orioles tied it in their half if the third when Adam Jones hit his first career postseason homer after Alejando De Aza doubled. Baltimore loaded the bases with one out in the seventh before Pearce hit a short fly to left and J.J. Hardy flied out. Cruz had his sixth consecutive multihit game, the longest streak in postseason history. The run began in 2012. Also, Joseph snapped an 0-for-33 skid with his first hit since Sept. 10. Royals roar ahead rfntb RIO DE JANEIRO LeBron James scored seven points while playing only 20 minutes against his former team, and the Cleveland Cavaliers went on to beat the Miami Heat 122-119 in overtime Saturday in an exhibition game in Brazil. Kevin Love, who was acquired by Cleve land a month after James left the Heat to return to Ohio, finished with 25 points in an entertaining game in the beachfront city that will host the 2016 Olympics. Chris Bosh led Miami with 19 points. The Cavaliers are 2-0 in the preseason and the Heat fell to 0-3. The HSBC Arena, which will be used for gymnastics during the Olympics, had a sold-out crowd of 15,411, with the top ticket advertised at $350 and green and yellow Brazilian flags adding to the color. James shook hands with the Heat start ers at the tipoff, but made little eye contact. James said in practices in Rio there was no bad blood, which was confirmed by former teammates Dwyane Wade and Bosh. Hes on another team, Bosh said Fri day. I think hed understand that. I under stand that. Well have plenty of time to talk in the summer, and thats how it is now. The real tension between the Heat and Cavs comes on Dec. 25, when the teams meet for the first time in the regular season. James struggled in the first half and played little after that, but his new team carried him. James shot only 1 of 6, missed his only 3-point attempt and his first three free throws. According to a report this week by Forbes, James overtook Tiger Woods as the most marketable athlete in the world. It was the Cavaliers 32-year-old Brazil ian center Anderson Varejao who got the loudest applause, upstaging James when the teams were introduced. Varejao left Brazil at 19 to begin playing abroad. Ive been waiting my entire life for this, Varejao said from an on-court microphone. I hope you enjoy it. They did. James missed the first shot of the game, a fall-away jumper from the left wing. Mo ments later Varejao scored the first points of the game on the Cavs second trip down the floor. He finished the first quarter with eight points as the Cavs led 27-21. Miami trailed by 20 points, but rallied against the Cavs reserves to tie it at 105 and force overtime. Cleveland stretched the lead to 122-119 on two free throws by Joe Harris with 13 seconds left. Miamis Shabazz Napier missed two 3-point attempts in the final seconds. The Cavs played without guard Kyrie Ir ving, who sprained his right ankle before the team left the United States. Cavaliers beat Heat in Rio as LeBron faces former team PHILADELPHIA Tues day remains the deadline to opt out of the NFLs class-ac tion settlement of concussion claims after a judge denied requests by former players for an extension. Lawyers for the family of the late Chicago Bears safety Dave Duerson and others had asked for a delay until after objections are weighed at a Nov. 19 fairness hearing. They believe the deal re mains shrouded in secrecy. However, Senior U.S. District Judge Anita Brody denied their request on Thursday. The lead lawyers who ne gotiated the minimum $765 million deal oppose the delay. They argue that many of the nearly 20,000 former players need the money quickly. The proposed plan would pay $1 million or more to re tirees with the most severe neurological problems, such as Parkinsons disease. They are a small fraction of the cases. The average award for Alz heimers disease or moder ate dementia is expected to be about $190,000. The NFLs actuaries expect approxi mately 6,000 men or 28 percent of all retired players to be diagnosed with seri ous enough cognitive prob lems to qualify for an award. The settlement may not be finalized by years end. Brody will take written briefs on the objections raised through Dec. 11. The NFL, with $10 billion in annual revenues, has agreed to pay at least $765 million into the fund over 65 years, and more if needed. The settlement addresses thousands of lawsuits that claim the NFL failed to prop erly treat on-field concus sions for many years. Current players are not included in the litigation. Objections have been raised by some retirees likely to miss out or have their awards reduced because, they say, they did not get a diagnosis when their symp toms first appeared, or suf fered other medical conditions that affect award calculations. Some leading brain trauma experts have also criticized the plan because it does not compensate men who exhibit mood swings, aggression and other behavioral problems they link to repetitive brain trauma. Duerson, who committed suicide in 2011 at age 50, is one of dozens of former NFL players diagnosed posthu mously with the brain decay known as CTE, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy. The settlement includes baseline testing and monitor ing for former players with out neurological symptoms. Judge: NFL concussion opt-outs due by Tuesday

The Patriots Even though the Pegu las just bought the Buffalo Bills, everyone in Western New York knows who really owns them: the Patriots. New England has won 20 of the past 21 matchups, and when it journeys to Buffalo on Sunday, it will face a festive atmosphere. The folks up there have been busy celebrating the $1.4 billion sale of the franchise to Terry and Kim Pegula, who also own the NHLs Sabres. The Pegulas are keeping the team in the area. It would be quite a start for the Bills to actually knock off the Patriots, per haps the NFLs biggest party poopers. Im sure its going to be rowdy, Patriots quarter back Tom Brady says. The fans are going to be into it. Its going to be a great at mosphere. If you love foot ball, then one oclock Sunday in Orchard Park is where you want to be. Brady says he is happy that the Bills will remain in Buffalo, and why not considering his mastery of them? Absolutely. Its a great rivalry, he says. Its a his toric franchise. Theyve had so many great players. You see it in the Ring of Honor that they have. That Ring of Honor in cludes, of course, Ralph Wilson, the Bills only owner until he died in March. This will be the first matchup in which some one else owns the team. Elsewhere Sunday, its Dallas at Seattle, the New York Giants at Philadel phia, Denver at the New York Jets, San Diego at Oakland, Green Bay at Miami, Carolina at Cincin nati, Baltimore at Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh at Cleve land, Washington at Ari zona, Chicago at Atlanta, Detroit at Minnesota, and Jacksonville at Tennessee. On Monday night, San Francisco is at St. Louis. The weekends action began with Indianapolis taking sole possession of first place in the AFC South by beating Houston 33-28. The Colts (4-2) won their fourth straight with a third consecutive intradi vision victory. They built a 24-0 lead and held on. Andrew Luck threw for 370 yards and three touch downs, with T.Y. Hilton making nine receptions for 223 yards with one TD. That was enough to beat Houston (3-3), even though defensive end J.J. Watt scored his third touch down of the season, re turning a fumble 45 yards. Off this week are Kansas City (2-3) and New Orleans (2-3). Dallas (4-1) at Seattle (3-1) What the Cowboys have done, especially with a banged-up defense minus any star players, has been impressive. Beating the defending Super Bowl champs in Seattle would be stupendous and stamp Dallas as a surprise title contender. Theyre good as a test and were going to face them, QB Tony Romo said. Itll be a great atmosphere and itll be great to get there and play against them. Brave words. Dallas DeMarco Murray is the first running back to rush for at least 100 yards in each of the first five games of a season since O.J. Simpson in 1975. Get ting there against the Sea hawks stingy and physical defense that leads the NFL in stopping the run would be another huge achievement. Seattle needs to clean up the flags: 13 penalties vs. Washington. New York Giants (3-2) at Philadelphia (4-1) After dropping their first two, the Giants stopped being so generous turning over the ball, and began grasping the offense new coordinator Ben McA doo brought from Green Bay. This is the first of six successive games against teams with winning re cords for New York. This is also Eli Month: Giants QB Manning is 30-7 in October. Philly has been dynamic on special teams, with four TDs, and also has three defensive touchdowns. After having to rally to win their first three games, the Eagles have jumped in front the past two, which they split. San Francisco (3-2) at St. Louis (1-3), Monday night Injuries have sunk the Rams, whose four games were outside the leagues toughest division. Now they dive into the NFC West for four of their next five, including two with the Niners. San Francisco has won six in a row on Monday nights, outscoring oppo nents 164-49. QB Colin Kaepernick is 3-0 on Mon day nights with six TDs, no interceptions. Although the Niners have, by far, the better Super Bowl history, St. Louis will be remember ing its past in prime time: The Rams will don throw back uniforms worn by their 1999 Super Bowl championship team, the Greatest Show on Turf. Denver (3-1) at New York Jets (1-4) Denver does not have pleasant memories of MetLife Stadium. The Broncos played a certain game there last February and got pummeled by the Seahawks. A little thing called the Super Bowl. Peyton Manning needs five TD passes to tie Brett Favres record of 508. See ing how the Jets second ary has performed this season, he might get it Sunday and still sit out the fourth quarter. After WR Eric Decker left Denver for the Jets as a free agent, the Broncos signed Emmanuel Sand ers. He has three consecu tive games with 100 yards receiving, and could be come the first Broncos player with four straight. San Diego (4-1) at Oakland (0-4) Oh, for the days when this rivalry had some juice. While these Raiders re semble everything theyve been since winning the AFC crown in 2002 that is, all bad the Chargers are a pleasant surprise power. San Diego has won four in a row and the only loss was by one point at Ar izona. Philip Rivers has a passer rating of at least 120 in four straight games, tied with Kurt Warner and Johnny Unitas for the lon gest streak in NFL history. Oakland puts together different kinds of strings, such as losing 10 in a row dating back to last season. That got Dennis Allen fired as coach during the bye week, and Tony Sparano takes over. Green Bay (3-2) at Miami (2-2) Green Bay has not had much success in South Florida, going 1-6. But the only victory came in 2006, Mike McCarthys first year as coach. McCarthy goes against his former offensive coor dinator, Joe Philbin. Miami will need to take care of the ball; the Pack ers lead the league with a plus-6 turnover margin. The Dolphins defense leads the NFL with aver ages of 4.7 yards per play, 5.3 per pass and 9.9 per completion. Carolina (3-2) at Cincinnati (3-1) The Bengals came crashing back to Earth in Foxborough, so how they react to their first defeat will be of high interest. Theyve won their past seven regular-season home games by at least 14 points, but are bothered by some key injuries, includ ing to wideout A.J. Green and LB Vontaze Burfict. Carolinas best player, linebacker Luke Kuechly, grew up in Cincinnati and played a high school game at Paul Brown Stadium in 2008. It was one of those things, any time you can come and play in your hometown, itd be a neat experience, Kuechly says. You grow up watch ing the Bengals and every one around Cincinnati loves the Bengals, it wouldve been cool (play ing for them). My parents would have loved it too, because Id be close to home. Thats where hell be on Sunday. Pittsburgh (3-2) at Cleveland (2-2) The Dawg Pound will be barking as loud as ever be cause theres life in these Browns. They showed it with the greatest come back by a road team in NFL history in their 29-28 victory at Tennessee. And now they face their most hated rival. Also the rival that domi nates them. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is 18-1 against the Browns; the Ohio native is 9-1 in Cleve land. Pittsburgh has swept the two-game season se ries 10 times since 2000 and won the 2014 season opener at home. The Steelers are 26-5 against the Browns since 1999. Washington (1-4) at Arizona (3-1) Washington has owned this series in recent years, with eight straight wins dating back to 2000. But the Redskins have lost 12 of their past 13 overall, and have looked sloppy through most of their five games in 2014. They do have the NFLs sacks leader in Ryan Kerrigan. Which quarterback he will be trying to sack is un certain with starter Car son Palmer still battling shoulder woes, and re placement Drew Stanton is undergoing the leagues concussion protocol. Rookie Logan Thomas could wind up starting. Chicago (2-3) at Atlanta (2-3) Should be a fun one for Devin Hester, who set re turn records for the Bears through eight seasons be fore signing with Atlanta as a free agent. In Chicago, Hester tied Deion Sand ers NFL record with 19 return touchdowns, and he broke that with a punt return TD against Tampa Bay in Week 3. Atlanta is a totally dif ferent team at home, going 2-0, averaging 46.5 points and 528 yards. The Bears are a totally different team after halftime, being out scored 34-3 in their past two losses. Detroit (3-2) at Minnesota (2-3) Minnesota hopes firstrounder Teddy Bridgewa ter can get back in the lineup after missing last week with a sprained left ankle. Hed be facing the top-rated overall defense, but could be helped by a running game that hasnt suffered much despite Adrian Petersons absence. The Lions are worried about star receiver Calvin Johnson (right ankle), but they might have fixed their kicking game. Their previ ous kickers, rookie Nate Freese and then veteran Alex Henery, were awful. So Matt Prater, one of the leagues best while in Den ver, was signed after he came off the substance abuse suspension list. Jacksonville (0-5) at Tennessee (1-4) For the few people actu ally watching this one, consider that Jacksonville has the worst-ranked de fense and next-to-worst offense. The Jags are start ing seven rookies, includ ing QB Blake Bortles. Tennessee blew a big lead to Cleveland last Sunday and has dropped four in a row. Starting quarterback Jake Locker probably wont go with a damaged thumb. Associated Press fffffnfff rfffnn

LARRY BUGG INVERNESS Second place really wasnt too bad Saturday for the Crystal River High girls and the Lecanto High boys cross country teams. The Pirates, led by freshman Jillian Feltons second-place finish, took second in the Whispering Pines Invitational team race with 99 points. Tavares won with 87 points. Alexis Ulseth helped, taking 18th with a time of 22:42. Lecantos Claire Farn sworth won the girls race with a time of 19:31. Felton ran a 19:51. Farnsworth impressed her coach. She did really well, coach Dan Epstein said. This course is slowing you down just slightly be cause of the hills. She is going to look really good at Lake McKethan, where ev erybody is running their fastest. I think all my girls had PRs (personal re cords) today. Overall, they did very well. I am very pleased. Citrus High senior Al yssa Weber was fifth with a 20:48 in her final trek around the Pines. Lecantos boys rode the third-place finish of senior Sam Alford to second place. They had 55 points and were just three be hind the winning Bel leview team. Crystal River was sixth with 192 points. Citrus was ninth with 219 points. Seven Rivers was 13th with 369 points. Felton was enjoying her highest place of the year. This is the first time I have been out of the 20s, Felton said. I like the course. I am happy about this. The girls had a break out race, said Crystal River assistant coach Brennan McNally. Jillian ran aggressive. Lexi came through. We couldnt ask for anything more from our girls. They have been training hard, so they deserve it. Weber is enjoying her final-year cross-country tour. She has made it to state every year and wants to reach Tallahassee again in November. It kind of hit me, like, Oh wait, this is my last race, Weber said. I would like to run in col lege. The weather was nice. It was cool. This is home. I thank my team and my family for support ing me. I feel really excited about Alyssa, said Citrus girls coach David Assump cao. She sees what it takes to get to 19. I really believe she can get to state if she gets better in the next three or four races. Alford was third with a 16:55. I felt a lot better (about his run), said Alford. I started out faster and I kept it going. I run here a lot. The team had a great run. Everyone ran really well, said Lecanto boys coach Roselle Lattin. Our top five pretty much had season bests. Great course. I am exceptionally proud of my three, four and five this week. I want to make sure that I thank the commu nity, said Citrus boys coach James Martone. Great turnout today.

Section CSUNDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW It is not newsworthy when I jump in the river and swim around to cool off. It is newsworthy when I jump in the river to cool off and a 6-foot tarpon swims up to me to determine whether I am edible. (For the record, I am not). Bad stuff becomes news. The good stuff often gets overlooked because were too busy covering the bad stuff and trying to figure out whether tarpon bite. But there are some good things going on in Citrus County right now, and we shouldnt let them be obscured by the bad stuff. To start, the final resolution of the hospital mess in Inverness will result in an improvement in health care and a reduction in taxes and stress. Citrus Memorial, our county public hospital, is about to be taken over by HCA, the nations largest health care provider. While lots of people and businesses have been negatively impacted by the five-year controversy, its the employees at CMH who have suffered the most. The stress has worn lots of folks down, and the HCA takeover will be cause for celebration. At least everyone will know what the future looks like. The medical community has also been in limbo for years, making investment and growth almost impossible. That uncertainty will now come to an end. The city of Crystal River is moving ahead with plans to build a Riverwalk around Kings Bay and create a new tourism destination for the county. After years of talking about building the Riverwalk, the council and city are getting ready to move forward. That means more businesses, more jobs and more places to enjoy. The YMCA is going full speed toward building the very first Y facility in Citrus County.

In order for you to understand why, I need to offer some background. I first became aware of politics in the 1950s, Dwight Eisenhower was president, and I learned to see him as the standard of what a president should be. Still too young to vote, I joined the Young Republicans club and attended the meetings. The president of the club was a young Bill Young, who recently passed away after 40 years in Congress. When I came of age, I registered as a Republican. Much to the consternation of my Democratic and Catholic parents, I supported and voted for Richard Nixon. I attended various meetings sponsored by the Pinellas Republican Executive Committee. There I was told that Eisenhower was a dedicated tool of the international Communist movement. I also was told that the social sciences were communisms plan to capture our children In order to increase economic growth and employment, the Economic Development Council (EDC) is supposed to assist in bringingnew industry and expanding existing businesses. For years, this has been a difficult task in our county because of the limited resources and poor infrastructure. Citrus Countys EDC took a unique, two-pronged approach in order to be successful. It continues to solicit new industries from outside of Citrus County while encouraging local entrepreneurs and innovators by sponsoring events such as Fire Up Citrus. Fire Up Citrus took place Thursday, Oct. 2, at the Quality Inn Banquet Hall in Citrus Hills. Over 100 citizens attended and 11 innovative business plans were presented. This year was special, not because many young entrepreneurs participated in the event, but because we saw organic growth through innovative business ideas from our local Inverness Middle School students.

It is a story about our collective failure as a society. The Spirit family was vulnerable and Don Spirit was a very troubled man. While his acts were deplorable and defenseless, he was only the most recent personification of all that is wrong in our communities, in our state and in our society as a whole. The Spirit case was not simply the result of a singular case of child abuse that went unchecked. Unfortunately, tragedies of this magnitude arent born of a few mistakes; they result from festering sores left unchecked for decades. How many opportunities were there to intervene in Don Spirits life long before he finally cracked? Was he abused as a child? Did he struggle in school and drop out in frustration when help wasnt there? Was he a juvenile delinquent who received punishment rather than education and treatment? As an adult felon, was he denied treatment and job training that would have enabled him to better provide for himself, his daughter and her children? We may never know those answers, but how many more troubled individuals will the system fail before we learn? It is unrealistic to expect that a single agency could make up for widespread societal dysfunction. If we truly want to prevent more senseless tragedies, prevention at all levels must become a priority for every individual, from neighbors and family members to child welfare professionals, law enforcement and policy makers.

Page C2SUNDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2014 Highway yard sale should be stoppedRe: Competing event stirs controversy by Jim Bitter, Letters to the Editor, Page A12, Thursday, Sept. 25. Editors note: Between the submission and publication of this letter, the county issued a permit for the Great Florida Yard Sale. For more, see County OKs big yard sale, Page A1, Thursday, Oct. 9.I read Mr. Bitters letter with interest, and then thought to myself, Why is this happening? Who is taking the responsibility for this and who issues a permit for this? Well, no one has issued a permit for this and one will not be issued according to the county. The county also plans on citing any property owner who allows this to happen. Then we come to tourism, and there is $2,500 grant tied to hotel rentals associated with this garage sale. Why would we give a grant to this and not to the Homosassa Civic Club for its event, which brings money directly into the county and is spent here on things like a fire house in Homosassa? U.S. 19 is considered one of the most if not the most dangerous highway in Florida. The county controls the rights of way on that stretch of U.S. 19, and the code says that you must be 20 feet from the edge of the highway (county code) or behind the fence or tree line (state code). Who is going to pay for all the cleanup and any damage don, and who is paying for the increased police during this event? What type of insurance does this lady have who is putting this on? Does it cover someone if they get killed from an accident related to this event? Do all these people have sales tax numbers? Where are they going to park, and how much are they paying her to set up on public rights of way? Several of us think this needs to be stopped before it gets any farther. Its time for the county commissioners to step up and ask the county attorney to file for an injunction to stop this, and some serious questions need to be asked of Rebecca Bays about why they got this grant from the TDC. This event can do more to hurt the county than help it if people come and the county is out writing citations to property owners and people are trying to park in private lots and being towed. There are a lot of unanswered question here, and they need to be answered before this goes any farther. If you agree that this is a bad idea, maybe we need to let the board know by phone calls, emails and showing up at the next board meeting to put pressure on them to act. Something smells here when you schedule something like this when you have an event like the Homosassa Seafood Festival already scheduled for that day. Is someone trying to hurt the seafood festival for some reason?Ray Speerly Inverness Would you pay $6.50 for a gallon at the gas pump? Youd have to if it were dispensing Florida orange juice. Florida OJ has long cost more than gasoline, but in the past decade it has spiked to nearly twice the price of the lowestoctane fuel. This despite the fact that its a home-grown health drink whose price is far less impacted by Middle East cartels, revolutions and terrorism than that of oil. A grove disease called citrus greening isnt the only cause of rising juice prices, but its a central contributor. First, greening has brought either biological or economic death to so many trees since its arrival in 2005 that Florida has lost 30 percent of its commercial citrus acreage in less than a decade. Thats a land loss equivalent to 60 percent of all of Citrus County. Fewer oranges generally mean more expensive oranges. Second, growing fruit is much more expensive in the era of citrus greening. Growers can still produce healthy fruit in an infected grove for a time, at least. But its often done through expensive means pesticides, more nutrients, more water, more labor, more replaced trees. Managing citrus greening and citrus canker doubled production costs from 2002-03 to 2010-11, according to figures from the University of Floridas Citrus Research and Education Center in Lake Alfred. Again, the price on the supermarket shelf reflects that. This is unfolding at a time when consumers are in the drivers seat as never before in terms of what they eat and drink. Floridians should continue to have the choice to go local with their juice, to help their neighbors prosper and to reduce the distance groceries travel from grove to supermarket checkout conveyor belt. Citrus greening doesnt just affect you in the grocery store. Its effects spread far beyond groves to the police cruiser, the firehouse or your childs classroom. There are places in Florida where 20 percent of the entire property tax base comes from citrus groves. That means growers support 1 in 5 sheriffs deputies, firefighters and teachers. And that doesnt even take into account packing houses. Losing a grove doesnt take the land off the property tax rolls. But its a significant hit, because fallow land is valued much lower than a thriving grove. That translates into fewer taxes collected. There are only two ways I know of to make up the difference reduce spending on public services or raise taxes. Citrus is a $9 billion industry in Florida. It employs not only pickers and packers but scientists, managers, marketers and exporters. It fuels sales of tractors, insurance, equipment, cars, horses, homes in short, just about anything an orange grower uses. It keeps processing plants humming, trucks rolling, ships launching. So please consider a fresh look inside your supermarkets refrigerator case. Its an opportunity to buy local. Every sale is a lifeline to growers struggling to stay in business as researchers at UFs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (which, in full disclosure, I lead), the Florida Department of Citrus, U.S. Department of Agriculture and commercial farms race to find a way to check citrus greenings destruction. Every dollar invested in agricultural research yields at least a 20-fold return, according to agricultural economics experts from three states. Right now the return is in time an extended life for the Florida citrus industry as researchers find promising but short-term strategies to keep groves producing while they seek a way to wipe out greening. At least some investors see enough promise in the industrys future that theyre buying groves, like the Frostproofbased company that recently spent more than $12 million to acquire nearly 1,500 acres of orange groves in Charlotte County. Meanwhile, UF/IFAS has an army of entomologists, engineers, plant pathologists, horticulturalists, geneticists and breeders enlisted in the fight to sustain the states iconic citrus industry. Think of the grocery case as the place you can buy a war bond and fuel your day with a vitamin-packed drink.Jack Payne is senior vice president for agriculture and natural resources at the University of Florida and head of UFs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.

Laplant has promised a return in 2015 and is currently working toward salvaging some dates in the 2014 season. The Citrus County Speedway has been part of the community for 50 years. For some, racing is in their blood, so much so that drivers from across Central Florida pack up their cars, trucks, trailers and entourage 30-plus weeks out of every year to make the trek to the 3/8-mile asphalt track on the Citrus County Fairgrounds property just south of Inverness on U.S. 41. Prior to the 2007-08 Great Recession, racing flourished at the speedway. Most classifications were filled with cars and drivers, and local advertising covered the walls, grandstands and race cars. When the recession hit, many of the track supporters construction companies and tradesmen were forced out of business or left town as the housing market crashed. Car owners were forced to finance their own racing teams or park their cars. Most had to park their cars. Laplant, the latest promoter who has tried to make a go of returning the speedway to its vibrant past, has struggled. As a long-distance, hands-on track promoter, Laplant has faced health and financial setbacks. The reasons for the financial problems are complicated, and in many cases out of Laplants control. This has been an especially wet year on the east side of the county, with nearly 80 inches of rain falling in the Inverness area. Cars cannot race on wet tracks, so Laplant has had to cancel a number of events. Drivers are still struggling to find regular sponsors to help fund the expensive hobby, and the track needs drivers to be successful. The more drivers in each class, the more fans in the stands, the more beer, fries and hamburgers sold in the concession and the more revenue for the track. Health and finances are not the only issues. As with any competitive endeavor, there will be hard feelings, especially when new rules are set to govern how drivers race and set up their cars. Laplant has acknowledged the dissatisfaction by some, who in the new world of social media feed on each others complaints. Regardless of all the problems the race track faces, the local community of race car drivers in Citrus County and throughout Central Florida deserve to have a viable local track. The issues at the speedway are temporary. Laplant has repeatedly said he loves racing and is working to get back on track. If he is not successful, local drivers will face a new promoter with a whole new set of rules, or worse, the permanent closure of the track, which would be devastating for the local racing community. We urge all those with a vested interest in racing to support the track and whoever its promoter might be. The local racing community deserves nothing less.

If you watched the game, which I did, they pretty much almost lost it til the very end, and Tennessee was very close to scoring again, and they made an error. And thank God they won because of the errors made by Tennessee, not because of how Florida played. Floridas past record has been so great. Now with this coach theyve got in there now, theyre basically squeaking by. And the way theyre going, theyre never going to make it anywhere to any championship games, because they dont have the strength. They dont have the coaching ability. They lack a lot of assets that previously was there. And I think its time they get rid of dead wood and start putting people in there who make it worthwhile for the school to have a winning football team.Kudos to countyIve lived in this area of Leisure Acres, Green Acres, etc., for 25 years. Off and on from time to time, I call the road department about a little hole or a little, you know, something a little wrong. They have always responded and took care of the problem. I dont know what some of these people think they want. Do they want another highway 44 running through Leisure Acres and Green Acres over to Homosassa? They need to get over it.

COMMENTARYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, OCTOBER12, 2014 C3 Thanks, Fred? No, thank you, stranger Iabsolutely love theChroniclesSound Off section. I usually read it first. I enjoy what readers have to say. I dont always agree with all of them. How could I? These snippets usually cover all takes on a subject, and there is always more than one opinion. It gives me faith in the American way of life to observe these diverse statements and to see all of them on one page of newsprint. Thank God and the drafters of our Constitution for the First Amendment. I not only like to read Sound Off, I like to call in. Quite often my call-ins never make it into print, so if that happens to you, dont think its personal. I say things to Sound Off that I would never, ever put in a letter to the editor and most certainly not in one of my columns. When I dial 563-0579, Im just venting and it feels good! I dont take offense when someone calls in and says they think my stuff is too sweet or perhaps even unbelievable. I assure you, everything I write is based in fact. There are no made up incidents. Embellished? Maybe. Made up? No. And it does my heart more good than a visit with my cardiologist to see a comment such as the one I saw in the Friday, Oct. 3, edition: Thanks, Fred. Ive never taken much time to read the editorials in the Sundays papers until today (Sept. 28). Ive noticed Sound Off comments in the past and thought I would go ahead on a rainy, dreary day and read the editorial section. What a dear, sweet, kind, loving man Fred Brannen is. What a king of men his wife has. What a beautiful message. Thank you for reminding me what love is all about. It is probably inappropriate on oh so many levels for me to quote the above, but I thank theChroniclefor allowing me the privilege of writing words that will encourage. Im not a journalist; perhaps, after 26 years of trying, maybe Im a columnist, but what I really am, always and foremost, is a storyteller. It is not my job to cover tragic events or write about the dismal parts of life which all too often invade our world. My calling is to look for and tell about the things which will bring smiles to readers faces while they are drinking their second cups of coffee on Sunday mornings. As to the callers comments on Oct. 3: Thanks, Fred? No. Thank you.Fred Brannen, an Inverness resident, has been a Chronicle columnist since 1988 and is the author of the novel At the Bottom of Biscayne Bay.

Fred BrannenA SLICE OF LIFE largest in the history of this community is moving close to its goal, and construction of the Y is expected to begin in 2015. Duke Energy is moving forward with its plan to build a new gas plant at the energy site north of Crystal River. This $1.2 billion project will bring jobs and more stability to the tax base. The state of Florida is moving ahead with land purchases for rights of way to extend the Suncoast Parkway through Citrus County. This is more than just talk; the state is spendingmillions of dollars purchasing the property for the parkway. The countys lack of an interstate has always been a major barrier to job expansion and commercial growth. Our public school system is an A district. That means Citrus County is performing at a high level in educating and training our children. We are one of the top districts in the state of Florida and should be proud of what has been accomplished. At the same time, so many other school districts in Florida faced financial turmoil during the recent recession; our district maintained its conservative spending philosophy and avoided trouble. Good schools and a good price thats a winning combination. We are doing solid things to clean up the environment. The sewer project around Kings Bay has been constructed, and most of the homes with old septic tanks are no longer dumping nitrates into our bays and rivers. A joint project by Crystal River, Duke Energy and the Southwest Florida Water Management District is almost complete and will move all of the treated water from the city sewer plant up to the energy site north of town. Now treated water will be used to cool the towers at the plant instead of fresh water pumped out of the aquifer. County government is considering piggybacking on the project so that more of its treated water can be disposed of in a more environmentally friendly way. Three Sisters Springs is about to open to the public. Its been three years since the property was purchased and now all the planning is just about done. Citrus County is going to have one of the most incredible public preserves right in the middle of an urban area. The investment of Citrus County is going to pay off. So its true, there are bad things going on in our community, but there are also plenty of positive trends that we need to remember. They dont always make the headlines, but they are the events that improve the quality of life in our community. Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle.

The United States Census Bureau found those businesses that are less than five years old accounted for the majority of new jobs in the country. Additionally, startup companies were the major source of innovation. Consequently, new small businesses are critical for the growth of the economy, and startup companies lead the way in creating new jobs and products. New products ultimately help to lift the economy by encouraging collateral growth of sister companies. Steven Johnson cites a perfect example of this in his book How We Got to Now: Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press, which not only resulted in the spread of knowledge, but also resulted in a revolution of lens technology. This, ultimately, led to the desire for people to read. Better lenses led to the invention of powerful microscopes and telescopes, which subsequently led to the progress in medical science and the discovery of new planets in our galaxy. This eventually led to our present generation of fiber-optic cables, which are used in telecommunications and modernday surgery. This is the hidden power of events such as Fire Up Citrus. We must thank Ardath L. Prendergast, manager of Economic Development & Projects, and Don Taylor, executive director of the EDC, for bringing this innovative program to Citrus County. Hopefully next year we will see more elected officials and government leaders join in to help Citrus Countys young businessmen and businesswomen to be the entrepreneurs of our future!Dr. Paresh G. Desai is a member of the Citrus County Economic Development Council. health services, substance abuse treatment, sexual abuse prevention, child abuse prevention and expanded availability of affordable childcare all play a role in systemic prevention. The 2014 Florida Legislature took steps in the right direction by increasing funding for mental health services, substance abuse treatment and Healthy Families Florida, a highly successful home-visiting program proven to prevent child abuse and neglect in high-risk families. Strengthened with recent legislation aimed at enhancing child welfare, Floridas Department of Children and Families is working tirelessly to adapt and improve services for our states most vulnerable children and families. But it alone cant turn the tide. I am encouraged that state Rep. Gayle Harrell and the Healthy Families subcommittee she chairs will continue to examine the entire child welfare system and offer legislative solutions where needed. But in the long run, the entire community must take responsibility for creating healthy and nurturing environments in which to raise our children. Do your part. Learn about the needs of children and families in your community. Get involved in their lives and speak up on their behalf. While we mourn for the victims of the Bell tragedy, we must move forward to insist and ensure that it doesnt happen again. Together, we can build a bright and prosperous future for Florida one child and one family at a time. T. Wayne Davis serves as chairman of the board of the Ounce of Prevention Fund of Florida.

But it alone cant turn the tide. BELLContinued from Page C1 As a rule of thumb, rejecting all proposed constitutional amendments would save money, reduce the power of bureaucrats to regulate our freedoms and deprive special interest groups of power over the citizenry. The embarrassment of humane treatment of pigs would not be enshrined in the Florida Constitution, nor would costly and ineffective class-size limits. Left-leaning interest groups would not have been able to force a judge to demand new electoral districts be drawn up to favor Democratic and minority politicians. On the November ballot, Amendment 1 is a fine-sounding proposal to protect the states environment and its waters by dedicating a portion of an existing tax for that purpose. Bureaucrats will implement the law and determine where and how the money is spent on beaches and shores; outdoor recreation lands, including recreational trails, parks, and urban open space; rural landscapes; working farms and ranches; historic or geologic sites; together with management, restoration of natural systems, and the enhancement of public access or recreational enjoyment of conservation lands. In other words, the money will be spent on almost anything special interests might desire. And make no mistake: The money diverted to this environmental slush fund will have to be made up from additional revenues (taxes) to compensate the loss. Amendment 1 is best thought of as a hidden tax to give environmentalists and their bureaucrat friends greater control over state lands and resources. We elect representatives to sort out all of the states needs on a priority basis. Why would we want to transfer this power to unresponsive bureaucrats? Amendment 2 medical marijuana is not needed. Actually, almost anyone who needs marijuana can get it for medical usage with little fear of prosecution. The issue here is not marijuana a substance less harmful than tobacco so much as the unintended consequences of a poorly written law. To help perhaps 20,000 to 30,000 Floridians who derive some medical benefits from smoking marijuana, the remaining 19 million of us are being asked to authorize the poorly controlled, highly permissive sales of medical marijuana on every street corner. Our elected representatives can authorize medical marijuana or even make it available for recreational use withoutamending the constitution. Amendment 3 is just politics. If a judge failed to be approved by voters for retention in office, it permits the current governor to make an appointment to be effective immediately upon the vacation of the judgeship. Doing so avoids a vacancy and possible case backlog. The issue is that the governor making appointments in November would appoint justices sharing his political philosophy and not the philosophy of a newly elected governor who would make appointments the following January. Amendment 3 does not resolve a critical problem. Lastly, the governors race. Gov. Scott is not a friendly, likable guy who can win converts with smooth talk. But he has done what he promised the voters, reducing taxes and regulations and helping to create jobs. He brings fiscal conservatism and the efficiency of his business background to the office, if not slick political skills. In comparison, former Gov. Charlie Crist is the type of politician most of us disrespect: He is dishonest, untrustworthy and completely self-serving. He has said and done everything he could to deny his Reagan conservative former self in order to promote his candidacy to Democrats. That Crist is getting so much support speaks volumes about Democratic voters. One shining light in the political arena is U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent. He is a citizen legislator true to the constitution and his conservative local roots. We will be fortunate to retain his service.

Section (5)(c) of the ordinance reads: The board may modify the use of the transportation surtax subsequent ordinance. This should not be in this ordinance as per Ms. Parsons statement in explaining it to the people at a recent board meeting. I go to many board meetings, and this is the first time I caught this change at the last minute. I am asking all citizens of Citrus County to vote no on this referendum. What we really wanted has been ruined once again by people who we elected into office. We want our roads paved and we will never get it done by this sitting board. Once again they failed us by adding this language to the ordinance. Thank you for ruining any chance this Cent for Citrus has of being passed.Charles Knecht Sr. DunnellonStop Ebola spreadI think we would all like to know why the airlines did not stop the run back and forth to these countries in Africa that has the Ebola outbreak. Now we have to deal with that person who showed up in Texas with Ebola. The CDC says we have nothing to worry about. Yes! We should be worried. Only now the airlines are saying they will not fly to and from those infected countries in Africa. It is a little late. So now we have a chance of more people coming down with Ebola. He came to Texas to visit his family. The family has to be watched to see if they come down with the virus. Is this country ever going to learn to take charge before things happen? We all better pray the Ebola virus will be stopped. Wake up airlines. No flying to and from these countries until all this is over. Anna DeRose LecantoThank you, HPHMy wife and I recently lost a very special member of our family. Genevieve (Frenchie) was 92 years old. In the last weeks of her life on Earth, she was under the care of one of the finest organizations I have ever known. Words are not adequate to describe the compassion, care and heartwarming affection Frenchie received prior to her passing on to eternal peace. The entire staff, volunteers, nurses, nurses aides, etc., were simply extraordinary to both Frenchie and my wife and I. They helped us cope with this loss and their concern for our loved one was so touching and genuine. HPH Hospice is a very special organization, and we will always be grateful. Genevieve Frenchie is gone, but she will not be forgotten, and neither will be the wonderful care and compassion she received at HPH Hospice.Patrick Shipman Crystal RiverListen to votersI had intended to be at the BOCC meeting to suggest the vote to purchase the Meadowcrest building be deferred until the new commissioners are sworn in, which would have been the honorable thing to do. Knowing the voting record of some of the commissioners, this request would have fallen on deaf ears and, as the headline in the Sept. 24Chronicleshows, it was a waste of time to make this request. We must remember that some commissioners seem to be as hooked on the power to spend taxpayers money. They spent our money like the proverbialdr unken sailor. The only difference is when the sailor runs out of money, he is forced to stop spending, while certain commissioners just constantly raise taxes or invent creative MSBUs with apparently no regard for the pain suffered by the average citizen and obviously no regard for their own political future. Voters essentially fired Commissioner JJ Kenney. The citizens he swore to serve were displeased that he was doing exactly the opposite of what the people wanted. Commissioners Joe Meek and Dennis Damato wont be re-elected in two years unless they come to realize this. The reason quite simply for the end of the political careers of four commissioners is simple. The four in question could always be counted on to spend and spend and spend then raise taxes and invent more creative ways to tax without calling them taxes, all the while looking bored to indifference at BOCC meetings and repeatedly ignoring input from citizens. When commissioners constantly and predictably go against the majority of those who put them in office, they learn the hard way that they can be removed from office.Harry Cooper Hernando

that those are what we were warned against in 2 Timothy 2. Over in the Democratic sphere, there was a Florida Senate committee led by the pork chop Charley Johns. His committee had hearings around the state to root out communists, homosexuals, integrationists and teachers of evolution from our universities. At that point, I became politically uninvolved. After graduating from college, getting married and returning to Clearwater, I became involved with the Pinellas Democratic Executive Committee. Some years later, I was seeking a subject for a doctoral dissertation and became interested in the measurement of equity in tax rolls. I got a consulting contract with Pinellas County Schools to measure relative equity in Hernando, Hillsborough and Pinellas counties. I then became the University of South Florida staffer who was contacted by the press whenever a question about the tax roll came up. In 1976 I ran for and was elected property appraiser in Pinellas. The 1976 election was a backlash against the tragedy of the Nixon presidency. Jimmy Carter had significant coattails, and brought a lot of Democrats into office. Between the election and my swearing-in, the incumbent property appraiser passed away. I was then appointed by Gov. Reubin Askew to fill out his term. I was reelected twice, serving 12 years. In 1988, amid a Republican sweep, I lost the election by a few hundred votes. I was, therefore, the last countywide elected Democrat in Pinellas. At the behest of former Citrus County Property Appraiser Charles Allen, my wife and I eventually made the decision to move to Citrus County with the intention of taking over for Allen, who was battling cancer. Allen explained that I would have to register as a Republican in order to get the appointment. Gov. Bob Martinez was a mainstream Republican politician and I knew and had worked with many members of his administration. I was comfortable with their policies and agreed to register. Allen then told me he would stay in office until I could arrange the appointment. In 1992, Martinez lost his re-election bid. About two weeks before the end of his term, his chief of staff phoned me and said tell him to resign, which Allen did. I was then appointed by Gov. Martinez. My appointment was probably the last of his administration. When Diann and I showed up for the event, the governors office was full of packed boxes waiting for the movers. I was then elected in 1996 and subsequently, retiring in 2010 after 14 years in office. Although the property appraiser is elected as a member of a political party, the duties of the office are strictly apolitical and nonideological. Diann and I enjoyed a couple of years of retirement, and then state Rep. Charlie Dean decided to run for the state Senate and resigned his House seat. I felt that I was not yet ready to stay out of things, so I chose to run for the seat. I was elected as the state representative from District 43 and re-elected, serving three years in the Legislature. During my 30 years in county government, I believed and practiced the concept that an elected official had a responsibility to the public as a whole. It took me a while to recognize that as a legislator, the expectation was that your first duty was to conform to the values and ideology of that small portion of the public that elected you and that the general welfare was clearly secondary. During my time in the Legislature, I made some votes that were not partisan and proved definitely unpopular with the leadership. During my three years in the House, the institution moved strongly to the right, adopting the philosophy of the upstart tea party. At the same time, the Citrus Republican Executive Committee became an arm of the Tea Party Patriots. With opposition from both Tallahassee and the local organization, I was defeated in the Republican primary, the only incumbent Republican House member to go down that year. I remained a Republican and campaigned for some local and state nominees. The November election resulted in the election of a Republican governor and a Legislature that was overwhelming Republican. The next two years, at the national, state and local levels, the definitive political issue was repeal and replace as the Affordable Care Act became the centerpiece in the plan to defeat President Barack Obama in his quest for a second term. In Florida, we also rejected the federal offer to build a highspeed rail line, since it was part of the Democratic stimulus effort. With the re-election of President Obama, the game plan to limit him to one term was shown to be ineffective. Nevertheless, for two years, and two sessions of the Legislature, Tallahassee has ignored the needs of some 800,000 Floridians for Medicare expansion, an expansion that would bring about 15 billion federal dollars (over three years) and add over 60,000 jobs to Florida (data from the Tampa Bay Times/Miami HeraldTruth-o-Meter, Sept. 30, 2014). This past year I found that I could no longer support a Florida Republican Party with an ideology that leads to political decisions that deny routine medical care to many of our citizens as well as providing additional job opportunities and a massive stimulus. These decisions, I believe, are morally despicable and economically stupid. I therefore have once again registered as a Democrat. Ron Schultz served 14 years as Citrus County property appraiser and three years as District 43 state representative.

Five. Thats the number who found themselves added to the ranks of Citrus Countys unemployed in August a very slight increase over the previous month to be sure, but nothing shy of monumental for those joining the 4,394 others making up the countys 8.1percent unemployment rate. I know it seems odd to be talking about the August unemployment rate when here we are in the middle of October, but the data is always released a month after the fact and we wont get the September numbers until Friday. In the meantime, no one is sitting around waiting for those numbers to improve on their own. If you need a job, you can do something about it in a big way by attending the third annual Citrus County Fall Job Fair on Wednesday, Oct.15. The job fair takes place from 9a.m. to 1p.m. at the College of Central Floridas Learning and Conference Center in Lecanto. The event is free and open to any job seeker. Frank Calascione, our business de vel opment manager in Citrus County, said that for job seekers the job fair is a great way to meet employers who are hiring and to apply for jobs on the spot. Calascione said that employers find job fairs to be a fast, efficient and a cost-effective way to connect with qualified, skilled talent. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. Last years fall job fair set a record for attendance topping 200 job seekers and 18 local employers. In May, that was eclipsed when 325 job seekers showed up to meet with 33 employers. At last count, more than two dozen employers registered to attend Wednesdays job fair, including the U.S. Army; AT&T Inc.; Avante at Inverness; BScada; Caregiver Services; Childhood Development Services; Citrus County Public Schools Transportation; Citrus County Sheriffs Office and Fire Services; Community Housing Partners; Dash Express; Enterprise Rent A Car; Experience Works; Family Life Care; FastTrack Staffing; FDS Disposal; Hospice of Citrus County; Interim Healthcare Staffing; Key Training Center; Maxim Healthcare; New Horizon Village; Nick Nicholas Ford and Ford Lincoln; ResCare HomeCare; Rural King; SGN Wireless, LLC; Spherion Staffing; and Western & Southern Financial Group. As we did with the spring job fair, we offered Job Fair 101 prep workshops at our one-stop career center earlier this month. If you were unable to participate, you can still maximize your time at the job fair with a little preparation.

We pay taxes on the earnings each year. What would be the tax liabilities to us were we to give some of the stocks to our children and/or grandchildren? Would there be immediate tax liabilities to them upon receipt? S.B. DEAR S.B.: Theres nothing to complain about if youre paying taxes every year because you made money in stocks. You asked about liabilities if you were to give some of the stocks to your children. Each year, you could give up to $14,000 per person and there will be no tax liability to you or to the children who receive the stocks. After that, taxes on any money earned from those stocks would be their responsibility, and I hope that they have to pay a lot of taxes because that means they are making money. Any money you wish to give above the legal amount in any calendar year would be subject to the appropriate gift taxes. DEAR BRUCE: Since interest rates have been so low, I have left my IRA money in an IRA money market account hoping things would turn around. I dont plan on using the money and am now thinking of putting it in an annuity (Knights of Columbus) or a life insurance policy. But Ill have to pay a huge amount of money to the government (around 25percent) if I put it in a life insurance policy. This really bothers me since it goes against the idea of an IRA, but the return is so much more for my beneficiaries (almost double) if I pass as early as the first year. What do you think? C.L.

ROSENBERG AP business writerNEW YORKIts not just big businesses such as JPMorgan Chase, Target and Home Depot that get hacked. Small companies suffer from intrusions into their computer systems, too.The costs associated with computer and website attacks can run well into the thousands and evenmillions of dollars for a small company. Many small businesses have been attacked 44percent, according to a 2013 survey by the National Small Business Association, an advocacy group. Those companies had costs averaging $8,700. JPMorgan Chase said the attack on its computer servers this summer compromised customer information from about 76million households and 7million small businesses. Target Corp., Michaels Stores Inc. and Neiman Marcus have also reported breaches of their computer systems in the past year, as did Home Depot Inc., whose customers include small contracting companies. Typically, businesses must have a computer expert find the source of the attack and systems have to be purged of harmful software like viruses. When websites are shut down, revenue can be lost. Making matters worse, if customer data was breached, companies often must pay to notify each person or business affected. In some states, theyre encouraged to pay for credit report monitoring for customers, says Matt Donovan, head of technology insurance underwriting for the insurer HiscoxUSA. In almost every state, companies must notify people when information has been breached, said Samuel Cornish, a commercial law attorney with Genova Burns Giantomasi Webster in Newark, New Jersey. Companies can also be liable for damages in lawsuits brought by customers, he said. Small businesses are particularly vulnerable to attacks because many owners believe they dont have the time and money to invest in software programs or consulting services to make systems more secure. Many businesses are ignorant of risks they face or possible solutions, said Jeff Foresman, a consultant with Rook Security, an Indianapolis-based computer security company.

For example, a perfectly normal-looking email from a friends computer that was attacked without the owners knowledge could lead to trouble. They dont know what they dont know. They dont understand the sophistication of these attacks, Foresman said. Berkeley Varitronic Systems bank account was hacked earlier this year and $50,000 was taken, CEO Scott Schober said. He got the money back, but considers the incident a lesson. He had already invested $50,000 in security for his own systems and plans to add another $20,000. Schober believes his Metuchen, New Jerseybased company was attacked via its bank because its business is computer security. We are a target. Thieves like to send that message, he said. No system is hacker-proof, but there steps, some of them inexpensive, businesses can take to shore up defenses and mitigate damage from attacks that get through: Hire computer security consultants to evaluate computers and websites and suggest ways to protect them. Buy insurance to cover financial losses. Premiums can be as low as $1,000 a year for $1million in coverage. Install free antivirus and anti-malware software available online. Also add firewalls, which block attempts to access, said Joe Caruso, CEO of Global Digital Forensics, a computer security company based in New York. Make sure email is secure by using an email provider that has proper security systems, Caruso said. Avoid having customers credit card information stolen by using a separate company to process orders. The company should guarantee that its systems are secure. Use a service that helps weed out fraudulent credit card transactions, said Jason Opdyke, director of online commerce for Berkeley, California-based BearExtender, which sells Wi-Fi equipment.

Roofers think pink Rexall sponsors team BUSINESS DIGEST Debbie Muir Associated PressNEW YORK Sears Holdings Corp. announced late Friday that it detected a data breach at its Kmart stores that started last month and that certain customers credit and debit card accounts have been hacked. The data theft at Kmart is the latest in a string of incidents that have hit several big retailers, including Target, Supervalu and Home Depot. For the Hoffman Estates, Illinois-based parent company, however, the breach comes at a time when its struggling with losses and sales declines as it fights to stay relevant with shoppers. Sears Holdings, which also operates Sears stores, said that Kmarts information technology department detected on Thursday that its payment data systems had been breached. But it couldnt provide the number of affected cards. However, it said that it was able to remove the malware. It also noted that based on a forensic investigation to date, no personal information, debit cards, PIN numbers, email address and Social Security information were obtained by the hackers. And theres no evidence that Kmart.com shoppers were affected. Sears said Kmart immediately launched a full investigation and is working with a leading security firm. It added that its also working closely with federal law enforcement authorities and banking partners in this ongoing investigation. Kmart is also implementing further advanced software to protect customers information. The company said that it will be providing free credit monitoring protection for those customers who shopped with a credit or debit card in its Kmart stores during the month of September through Thursday. It also emphasized that customers have no liability for any unauthorized charges if they report them in a timely manner, according to the policies of most credit card companies. Sears said that the most up-to-date information will be available on its website, kmart.com and customers can contact its customer care center at 888-488-5978. The announcement comes a few weeks after Home Depot, the nations largest home improvement chain, said that a data breach that lasted for months at its stores in the U.S. and Canada affected 56 million debit and credit cards. Thats far more than a pre-Christmas 2013 attack at Target Corp., which compromised 40 million credit and debit cards. The size of the theft at Home Depot trails only that of TJX Companies heist of 90 million records disclosed in 2007. Targets high-profile breach pushed banks, retailers, and credit card companies to increase security by speeding the adoption of microchips in U.S. credit and debit cards. Supporters say chip cards are safer, because unlike magnetic strip cards that transfer a credit card number when they are swiped at a point of sale terminal, chip cards use a one-time code that moves between the chip and the retailers register. Data thieves hit Kmart Associated PressMicrosoft CEO Satya Nadella speaks to students Sept. 30 at the Talent India 2014 program in New Delhi. Nadellas foot-in-mouth statement that women shouldnt ask for raises echoed throughout the tech industry and beyond Thursday, earning him quick derisions on social media and leading to a later apology. Associated PressNEW YORK Dont ask for a raise. Keeping quiet will give you superpowers that will translate into employer trust and other good karma that will eventually come back around to your purse. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella was widely derided Thursday for his foot-in-mouth statement at an event celebrating women in computing. During his stage interview, Microsoft director Maria Klawe asked Nadella to give advice to women who want to advance their careers but are uncomfortable asking for promotions and raises. His pearl of wisdom? Just trust that the system will reward you as you go along. He didnt say if he has employed that philosophy during his decadeslong career at Microsoft. He later apologized. Men are eight times more likely than women to negotiate salary when taking a job, according to a study by Linda Babcock and Sara Laschever for their 2007 book Women Dont Ask: The High Cost of Avoiding Negotiation and Positive Strategies for Change. So hows that good karma working out?On average, women in the U.S. working full time were paid 78 cents for every dollar that men earned in 2013, according to Census figures.WHERE YOU LIVE MATTERSLouisiana has the nations largest gender pay gap women make about two-thirds of what men are paid. The District of Columbia has the narrowest, with women averaging 91 percent of mens salaries. This likely has to do with the types of jobs available. Washington boasts highly paid jobs going to a highly educated workforce. In Louisiana the more lucrative jobs are in the oil and gas industries, which employ mostly men.YOUR TECHNOLOGY JOB IS CUTTING-EDGE YOUR PAYCHECK ISNTWomen in the computer technology industry earn an average of $6,358 a year less than men, factoring in education, age, region and occupation differences. Thats according to a recent study by the nonprofit American Institute for Economic Research. Youre a mom too? The child penalty will cost you $11,247 a year.Most of the technology companies that have revealed diversity figures this year say women comprise less than one-third of their workforce. At Microsoft Corp., women make up 29 percent of employees.Facebooks Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg continues to publicly champion women in the workplace with her Lean In book and campaign. But women make up only 31 percent of Facebook Inc.s total workers and only 15 percent of its tech employees, mainly in engineering.Thirty percent of people who work at Google Inc. are women, but when it comes to leadership positions, the number drops to 21 percent.WANT TO WORK ON WALL STREET? STAY SINGLEThe pay gap is even bigger in the financial services industry, where women earn $14,067 a year less than men, says the American Institute for Economic Research. Brides earn $16,491 less than single ladies and all men.Just 6 percent of partners in U.S. venture capital firms are women, according to a recent study from Babson College. Thats down from 10 percent in 1999. Unequal pay: Must be a lot of good karma out there

Eric McGarvey, 40, said he considers Olive Gardens food to be American Italian and likes the consistency it provides. I found the food to be tasty too, if basic. My main complaint is that the noodles are on the soft side, but others might not prefer their pasta al dente. The bigger issue is nutrition; My go-to dish of corkscrew pasta with meat sauce and meatballs probably wasnt the best option. The dish is 920 calories. Olive Garden did add a Lighter Italian Fare two years ago with options that include a chicken breast served with potatoes and spinach at 550 calories. But those arent part of the pasta promotion. That does, however, bring me to another problem Olive Garden has: an overwhelming number of options. Executives acknowledge the need to simplify the menu, which has been criticized for mushrooming to nearly 100 items, including burgers. Still, Darden president Eugene Lee recently said its hard deciding what to get rid because everybody has their favorite.THE PRICESThe other common complaint among my companions was that the prices are too high, with dishes like Fettuccine Alfredo costing $18 in New York City. A steak and potatoes dish cost $30. Olive Garden notes prices vary by market but that in most places, those dishes cost $9.49 and $19.99, respectively. Still, Olive Garden acknowledges it needs to get better at offering value. In fact, the Pasta Pass was intended to promote its Never Ending Pasta Bowl, which lets people eat as much pasta as they want in one sitting for $9.99. That promotion has run every year since debuting in 1995. Like other aspects of its business, though, Olive Garden has acknowledged that it hasnt been as effective as it could be. As a result, the promotion was pushed to late September this year, instead of early August. Jay Spenchian, Olive Gardens executive vice president of marketing, said Olive Garden realized the idea of a hot bowl of endless pasta isnt as appetizing when its hot out. The Never Ending Pasta Bowl is Olive Gardens most popular deal, but I never saw it advertised in the restaurants. Thats likely because the chain doesnt want to distract customers who are likely to pay more for something on the regular menu. While it may make sense from a business perspective, it was inconvenient and confusing. I had to look up the options for pasta, sauce and toppings available on my phone or ask the waiter. Another problem? The Never Ending Pasta Bowl made Olive Gardens regular prices in New York seem more inflated. Just a single plate of pasta and meat sauce costs $17 on the regular menu. A waiter told me on one visit that a man at a nearby table was on his seventh bowl, so maybe he got his moneys worth. But Olive Garden said about a third of people dont even ask for a second plate. CANDICECHOI Associated PressNEW YORK The Never Ending Pasta Pass card from Olive Garden not only promised weeks of unlimited pasta, but a look into why the chain is fighting to hold onto customers. The Italian-themed chain sold the $100 card last month that allowed 1,000 people to dine on endless pasta, breadsticks, soup and salad for 49 days. The passes sold out in less than an hour, with some turning up on eBay for hundreds of dollars. It was a successful publicity stunt for Olive Gardens parent company, Darden Restaurants. But the companys troubles arent over: Its fighting to hold onto customers, with sales at its flagship chain declining for each of the past three years. On Friday, activist investor Starboard Value succeeded in its bid to replace all 12 of Dardens board seats with its own slate of nominees. Starboard said its looking forward to working with Dardens management to improve results for shareholders. Darden had already been making changes to turn around business. That includes modernizing its menu with small plates like crispy risotto bites and updating its marketing. To get a firsthand look at Olive Gardens troubles, I paid for a Pasta Pass. I mostly enjoyed my meals, but the reactions of my companions shed some light on why the chain is struggling. Some think the menu is overwhelming and the service is slow. Others feel bad about eating all the empty calories. And one colleague who ordered the meat lasagna said: I can make this at home.THE FOODOlive Garden has become a punchline in some circles that dont see it as serving authentic Italian food. One night, I asked my fellow diners what they thought about the criticism.D4SUNDAY, OCTOBER12, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEBUSINESS Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge Day Saturday, October 25, 2014 9:00 AM: 00 PM At Three Sisters Springs 000JH8W FREE FREE www.friendsofcrystalriver.org www.friendsofcrystalriver.org Park at Kings Bay Plaza Right behind Sonic Free Shuttle to Property Photo by Tracy Colson Call (352) 563-2088 for more info. 000J7JV 000JBBO THE 2014 SOUTHERN HERITAGE FESTIVAL & CRACKER CATTLE ROUNDUP!

You mentioned putting money into an annuity with a specific organization or a life insurance policy. I have no problem with the organization, but I do have every problem with many types of annuities. You also say you will have to pay a huge amount to the government if you put the money in a life insurance policy, but I have no idea how that can be. If you want to drop me another note and explain, I would be very happy to comment. DEAR BRUCE: Eight years ago I fell off the roof and broke my neck. We were told I would never recover. My wife then took it upon herself to divorce me and manipulate things to put me into great debt. I am trying to put all that behind me. I have recently started looking for a house. My credit score is in the 670 range, but I have three judgments against me. With the judgments, I find I cant get a traditional mortgage. I have found a home where the previous owner is willing to hold the mortgage. What caution should I take in proceeding with this? D.M. DEAR D.M.: You have certainly had your share of bad luck, and I sympathize. I hope that you are now on your way to both physical and mental recovery. You mentioned your wife took it upon herself to put you in debt. I would be curious to know how she did that, but first, with all the judgments, you must ask yourself if it is wise right now, while you are trying to get back on your feet, to purchase a home. I think the answer to that is no. You will be much better off to find a modest home/apartment/condo to rent for the next few years until you get your credit score built up, satisfy the judgments, and get yourself in a much stronger position than you are now. I wish you all the luck in the world. DEAR BRUCE: I am a 55-year-old single woman with no kids. Ive been renting with a roommate for about 15 years and am now thinking about life without a roommate. But I dont know if at my age it would be wise to buy a townhouse or condo. I have about $20,000 in a traditional IRA, $20,000 in a Roth IRA, and about $50,000 in a deferred compensation plan through work. I am not sure what the rules are for using the money for a down payment. I earn about $80,000 a year. With no down payment, I shudder at what the payments would be. I plan on working for at least another 10 years. Also, I live in Southern California where the cost of living is ridiculous! It just seems like having a mortgage and owning a home is not the retirement vehicle it used to be, especially at this age. Am I right? J.W. DEAR J.W.: Its true that the cost of real estate is high in parts of California. On the other hand, other parts of the real estate market are in the tank! First, you have to determine why youre buying a condo or a townhouse. You say you have less than a $100,000 in savings, and you are flirting with putting your money into an investment that, at your age, in my opinion, is not the smartest thing to do. However, if this is a dream of yours, by all means investigate. Regarding the question about payments, if you are not putting any money down, I think you are making a major mistake. I dont know what the cost might be across the board, but you certainly want to put at least 20 percent down. The idea of living without a roommate sounds very attractive. Good luck.

DIGEST DEADLINES Submit information for the Real Estate Digest by 4 p.m. Thursday for publication Sunday. Dear Gardener Gal: This might be more of a Miss Manners question than a Gardener Gal question, but here goes: My husband and I live just a few doors down from my in-laws. We help each other out all the time, but I suspect one bit of helping is killing my lawn. My father-in-law insists on mowing our front lawn when he does his own. Sounds nice, but he mows too short. Sometimes he is out there mowing our lawn and we had just done it the day before! He says you should mow real short so you dont have to do it as often, but isnt this bad for the grass? BTW, his lawn looks terrible ... We dont want any hurt feelings, but we dont have the money to replace the grass. Help! What To DoDear What To Do: I had to wear two different hats to help you with this one. First, I put on my Master Gardener hat: You didnt say what type of turf you have, but no problem, since recommended mowing heights for the two most popular are essentially the same. Both St. Augustine and Bahia should be mowed to a height between 3 and 4 inches. Mowing shorter than this on a regular basis is very hard on the grass, and it will suffer. No more that a third of the grass blade should be removed with each mowing. OK, here comes my Miss Manners hat: Over a cup of coffee, share the UF/IFAS article Bahia for Florida Lawns (or the article on St. Augustine) with your father-inlaw and tell him you would like to thank him for all his hard work by helping him improve his lawn. Share your research and then take him to see some healthy lawns cut at the proper height. Hopefully, he will see his own lawn in a new light and be open to change. Mowing season is almost over, so you have all winter to work on him. If all else fails, offer to mow both lawns. Yes, really. Good luck. Dear Gardener Gal: I am worried about my Crape Myrtle tree. Its trunk and branches are covered by a mossy type plant. What can I spray to kill this invader? Worried About My TreeDear Worried: Worry no more! Thanks in part to your clear photo, I can tell you the plant covering your Crape Myrtle is a lichen and it will NOT harm your tree. Lichen is not a parasite. It takes nothing from the tree or shrub upon which it grows. Lichen is often blamed for killing trees simply because it is only noticed as a trees decline draws attention and owners do Help with lawn might be hurting it Leslie DerrenbackerGARDENER GAL See GARDENER / Page E7 GOT A NEWS TIP?

The best way to help plants survive the winter is to select the right varieties to begin with, she said. Buy the most cold-tolerant varieties you can find. I pick the hardiest available rated with a USDA zone that is two zones colder than my zone, Ophardt said. Some plants genetically are more perennial than others. Woody plants like shrubs, for example, usually are more cold-hardy than are soft-stemmed herbaceous perennials. Many techniques have evolved to help potted plants survive the winter. Several of the most common:Use bigger containers. Larger root masses and soil volumes are less susceptible to winter injury, said Hannah Mathers, an Ohio State University professor who specializes in commercial nursery and landscape extension.Dig them into the ground. Dig a pit and cover with poly (plastic sheeting) and straw to over-winter some smaller containers, Mathers said. Trapping the heat from the earth is an ideal way to overwinter plants.Group them. Less troublesome that digging can be grouping and placing them in a protected spot on the ground, such as an alcove or corner, and mulching them with compost or straw, Ophardt said.Bring them indoors. Anyplace cool but that will stay above freezing, Ophardt said. Most often an unheated garage meets this criterion. Potted plants should be prepared if theyre to be over-wintered in unheated structures, Mathers said. Watering should be reduced in late September and early October to help the plant acclimate, she said. Fertilizer should be stopped in early September to reduce lush growth and again allow for acclimation. Over-wintering perennials gives you a running start for the next growing season, especially if youre a fan of mixed container gardening. It supplies nearly filled containers that need only a few annuals to complete. Associated PressEdgar Allan Poe and Halloween are enmeshed like cobwebs on a lamppost. In classics like The Cask of Amontillado, The Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Masque of the Red Death and more, the master of horror fiction gave us imagery sinister masquerade balls, mysterious catacombs, menacing city streets that have long inspired Halloween aficionados and lovers of all things spooky. Retailers have plenty to offer for scary decorations or a Poe-inspired Halloween party:The RavenPerhaps the most iconic Poe symbol, the raven is easy to spot around Halloween. You can find large and small decorative versions of black birds that can be placed on buffet tables, bookshelves and front porches. Pottery Barns got metal crows for outdoor display; faux crows for indoor use have real feathers. (www.potterybarn.com) At Crate & Barrel, there are plates and napkins with an all-over raven graphic, as well as string lights and carved wooden ravens. (www.crateandbarrel.com) A black feather wreath makes a dramatic statement on a mantel. Or run a black boa down the length of a serving table. Youll find both in many Halloween dcor stores, but you can make your own, too. HGTV.com has instructions for creating a wreath using a straw form, and a black feather trim and boa from a crafts supply store. (www.hgtv.com) Raven masks will turn even a noncostume dinner party into something intriguingly chic. Find versions both simple and elaborate crafted of paper, leather, lace or felt on Etsy.com.Style with a storyPoe-themed decor also might include a touch of the literary: a long white glove with ink stains on it, vintage books stacked haphazardly, a tatteredCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER12, 2014E13 E4SUNDAY, OCTOBER12, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE C ARL M ANUCCI 352-302-9787 S USAN M ULLEN 352-422-2133 000JI3V Terms 6 Months or More Social Membership included with all Rentals Terra Vista & Brentwood Rentals!

Edgar AllanPoeand Halloween are enmeshed like cobwebs on a lamppost.Associated Press See POE / Page E7 PLANTSContinued from Page E5 KIMCOOK Associated PressFans of crisp, modern architecture and clean-lined shapes will love one of this falls strongest style trends: faceted dcor. For those who feel that the whole bold, geometric-pattern thing is nearing overexposure, faceted furniture and prints make sense, according to New York designer Elaine Griffin. Purer and streamlined, the faceted silhouette is the stylistic descendent of geometrics think geometrics deconstructed, she says. The style, says Griffin, can be modern (the faceted Hearst Tower in New York City oozes architectural chic), primitive (think Grand Canyon) and vintage (Art Deco and the Cubists). Faceted shapes are intrinsically more visually appealing because, whether theyre mirrored or not, they reflect more light, she says. A faceted element in a piece adds a stylish, decorative layer of dimension and surface interest without crossing over into the fussy, frilly or overdone. The gemstone shape is especially attractive in reflective materials mirror, glass, shiny metallics where light plays off the planes. The look is clean, contemporary and luxe. Yet in ceramic, wood or fabric, the polyhedron shape looks appealingly organic, as in honeycombs and cellular structures. Wayfairs got faceted dcor from several sources.

will be appreciated. V. & F., Internet Dear V. & F.: The sculptures are interesting and decorative with a fantasy look. I was not able to find any information or track record of sales for Ronell LaLonde or any collector interest. The price you paid, $100 each, seems fair enough. All I can say at this time is potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can. Dear John: We are hoping you may be able to help us identify this set of four prints acquired during our garage sale excursions. We are not sure if they are original ink drawings or prints. They appear to have been done during the 1950s or so. They are nicely matted and framed, the drawings themselves measure about 4 inches by about 5.5 inches. Including the frames, the total size of each piece is 8.5 inches by 10 inches. There is no signature that we could find on the prints. We listen to your show regularly, and look forward to your response. Many thanks. K. & P ., Internet Dear K. & P .: I do not recognize your pictures. I see the retail store tag they were sold through is on the back side; perhaps the store is still in business something you might pursue. Open the backs and see if there are any notations about the image or perhaps the artist. Let us know if you find anything; if not, potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can. Dear John: I am attaching eight photographs of a mahogany bookcase that I have had for well over 65 years. My parents bought it for me from the estate of an elderly couple, and it has always been my understanding that it had been in their possession for more than 50 years. The fact that the backside of the bookcase is unfinished would seem consistent with cabinetmaking practices in the late 1800s. The wood appears to be natural mahogany. The sides, top, and bottom are solid boards. The back is made of thinner panels in either a tongue and groove or overlap arrangement. Can you give me some idea of its potential value? R.J.G., Internet Dear R.J.G.: Yes, you are correct about the time of production. The style of your bookcase is Renaissance Revival. It was manufactured in America during the last quarter of the 19th century, possibly in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Potential dollar value is in the $100 to $200 range, perhaps more on a lucky day. Dear John: We recently moved to Crystal River and have found your very helpful column on antiques. We have three pieces of Lalique glass and wonder who we should contact about their value. Our kids have no interest in them, so we are thinking of selling them. Any help will be greatly appreciated. T.D., Internet Dear T.D.: The French artist Ren Lalique produced a large body of decorative glass. His works are sought after by collectors worldwide. I would be glad to help you with potential dollar value and how best to sell the pieces. Take several good, clear photographs of each piece. Make sure to include the signatures on each piece as well.

DEANFOSDICK Associated PressIn simpler times, container gardening was small-scale landscaping using flowering annuals. Enjoy their color for one season and go with something new the next. But shifts toward food production and mixed container planting perennials with annuals have changed all that, creating the need for over-wintering. Many more people have limited or no garden space (and) as a result are doing their food gardening in containers, said Marianne Ophardt, an extension horticulturist with Washington State Universitys Benton County office. Cultivating small (perennial) fruit like raspberries, strawberries and blueberries is one way for these gardeners to grow their own fruit, and its fun. Ignore the rules about hardiness zones if youre trying to over-winter perennials in pots. All bets are off when containers are exposed to dehydrating winds and seasonal freeze-dry cycles. When we put woody or perennial plants in pots above the soil, they have lost the insulation provided by the soil and are exposed to potentially tissuekilling temperatures, Ophardt said. As a general rule, the least hardy parts of woody plants are the roots.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER12, 2014E5 E12SUNDAY, OCTOBER12, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000JJ2B Lic. #CBC1252474 www.exitrealtyleaders.com 2013 2013 2013 2013 2012 2012 2012 2012 352-794-0888 352-527-1112 352-447-4594 Realty Leaders 2011 2011 2011 2011 000JIYX 3 LOCATIONS TO SERVE YOU!

Faceted decor PAGE E13 Jane Weber PAGE E9 Real Estate Digest PAGE E3 Associated PressWASHINGTON Average U.S. mortgage rates fell for the third straight week, making it more affordable to borrow to buy a home. Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday that the nationwide average for a 30-year loan fell to 4.12 percent from 4.19 percent last week. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, also declined to 3.3 percent from 3.36 percent. The 30-year rate is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Federal Reserve appears set at the end of this month to end its monthly bond purchases, which are intended to keep long-term borrowing rates low. Yet Fed officials have indicated that they will continue to hold shorter-term rates at near-zero levels until there are signs of rising inflation. Fed actions often influence the yield on the 10-year Treasury note, which affects mortgage rates. The 10-year note was trading at 2.32 percent at midday Thursday, down sharply from 2.41 percent a week earlier. Mortgage rates are falling as the housing market has cooled off. Average price growth has slowed, rising just 6.4 percent in August compared with a year ago, according to real estate data provider CoreLogic. Thats down from annual average gains of as much as 12 percent toward the end of last year. Similarly, sales of existing homes also declined in August. Fewer investors bought properties, and first-time buyers have yet to return to the market, according to the National Association of Realtors. Sales of new homes shot up in August, yet it remains below historic averages, according to Commerce Department data. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week.

They make such a beautiful impact, really popping with color, Kleinhelter says. If youve got space, an outdoor fireplace will allow you to host guests and also take in the amazing foliage, says Flynn. I have an outdoor fireplace in my own mountain house, and I deck it out in fall tones each year and just escape outside all day long. Outdoor cushions in summery colors can be replaced with warmer, autumnal shades. And Burnham suggests using clusters of scented candles outside in cinnamon, clove or other seasonal fragrances. Depending on your climate, Flynn even suggests hosting Thanksgiving dinner outside. Space heaters and a roaring fire can keep guests warm in most parts of the country, even on a November evening. And candlelight on the table adds to the drama. If youve got an outdoor spot thats covered and has a great view, Flynn asks, why not take the biggest dinner of the year outdoors?Choose the right shadesAll three designers are fans of white gourds and white pumpkins. We use them every year one way or another, Kleinhelter says. Grouping them on table settings or outside in multiples by the door is an easy arrangement. You can decorate with gourds and pumpkins without adding that crazy pumpkin orange to your homes exterior, Burnham says. Instead, pick other shades of orange and yellow that feel seasonal but arent quite so bright. Orange and yellow are the two colors most associated with fall style, Flynn says. But to get these tones right, youve got to stick with those that have just the right amount of brown in them. Otherwise the intended look will end up being somewhat childish or even summery. Stick with mustard tones rather than canary yellow, and as far as orange goes, its best to use burnt pumpkin tones rather than red oranges or yellow oranges. You can also mix in neutral shades of tan and soft brown. And I always like to throw my own spin on it all, Flynn says, by incorporating black.Use what you haveI dont think you need to go buy a new themed look for a season, Kleinhelter says. Take something you already have and rethink it, like the natural elements in your yard, and come up with a creative yet simple way to use them. White lights you bought for Christmas decorating can be just the thing to make fall outdoor decorating look special. We have jumbo vine balls we are going to wrap in lights and scatter in the yard, Kleinhelter says, in a pop art kind of way. Burnham agrees: You can never go wrong with white lights, she says. You can do a lot with just framing your door with really beautiful white lights, perhaps woven through twigs or vines. The look is glamorous, and also practical: If youve lined your front door with white lights woven through twigs in the fall, simply add some pine or holly branches to the mix when its time to decorate in December.

To enhance fall style, Flynn changes up throw pillows in October by swapping summer tones pillow cases with those more suited forautumn.

JANE WEBER/Special to the ChronicleThere are 17 Ragweed species in North America. The most common species have pollen so similar they are almost indistinguishable from each other to pollen counters. Ragweed pollen is a major cause of hay fever, sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes and coughing. they will re-sprout. Tender new shoots and leaves can be sprayed with systemic herbicide. The second allergy culprit is Ragweed, in theAmbrosia genus.It flowers at the same time as pretty Goldenrod and smelly Dog Fennel. There are 17 Ragweed species in North America. The most common A. artemisiifolia,A. trifida,andA. psilostachya have pollen so similar they are almost indistinguishable from each other to pollen counters. Hence, all ragweed counts are combined in one category. Ragweeds lacy leaves are deeply divided into many raggedy lobes. Stems are branched, sticky and hairy and tipped with long spikes of minute, greenish flowers. Wind-borne Ragweed pollen is a major cause of hay fever, sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes and coughing. Minute flowers bloom and pollen develops when temperatures dip below 60 degrees. Annual ragweed, Ambrosia artemisiifoliai,grows from seed each year. It reaches up to 6 feet tall in Central Florida and generally has one branched main stem. The root burrows deep into the soil and is more difficult to pull up than Dog fennel. A gardeners spade will be needed to dig and pry up Ragweed. Problem plants and alien invasives can be killed with a 3 percent solution of glyphosate herbicide. Always read and follow the label instructions. This readily available chemical enters green leaves, travels through the plants system to the roots and after about three days begins to kill the sprayed plant. As green plants absorb all the spray and lock it in their tissue, the short-lived chemical does not leach deep to the aquifer. Glyphosate has no residual soil activity. Never spray near springs, rivers or water. That is a job for a licensed, well-trained professional, state and county crews or the Department of Environmental Protection.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant.

Also, a tree with health issues will often have fewer, or smaller leaves and this extra sunlight on truck and branches will encourage more lichen to grow. Deciduous trees (those that lose their leaves in winter) like your Crape Myrtle make a good home for the lichen for the same reason. If your tree looks otherwise healthy my advice is to relax, grab a magnifying glass, and take a minute to enjoy this invader for the attractive and interesting plant it is.Gardener Gal Leslie Derrenbacker is a Master Gardener and Native Floridian.

Two noxious plants, Ragweed and Dog Fennel, are aggressive, herbaceous plants that flower prolifically in fall about the same time as showy Goldenrod. The large, heavy pollen on Goldenrod, a Solodagospecies, falls to the ground and does not remain airborne. The fine pollen from Dog Fennel and Ragweed drifts for days on the slightest breeze and is a serious allergen. All three can grow up to 6 feet tall. Perennial Dog Fennel, Eupatorium capillifolium,ranges throughout the southeastern U.S. from Florida west to Texas and Oklahoma and north to Virginia and Pennsylvania in zones 6 to 10. It proliferates in pastures and along unmowed roadsides. It is among 25,000 species in the Aster family, Asteracea. Globally, there are other unrelated plants commonly called Dog Fennel. Thick stems grow from a large, central root system. Alternate hair-like leaves are finely dissected. When crushed, leaves and inconspicuous flowers have a pungent, unpleasant smell. Flowers emit pollen from September until frost in late November locally, causing sensitive people to suffer allergic reactions. The nectar is attractive to butterflies. Dog fennel spreads by seeds and roots. This pesky plant contains distasteful pyrrolizidine alkaloids that can damage the liver if ingested. It can cause contact dermatitis in humans. Cattle avoid eating Dog Fennel and leave it untouched as they graze around the plants. Control this plant by mowing before it flowers to prevent pollen drift and seed set. Spray re-sprouting mowed plants with non-restricted, systemic herbicide like glyphosate or triclopyr. Both disrupt only plant systems and have no residual soil activity. Hand-weeding is time consuming, hard labor. To pull out Dog Fennel, grasp a single stem and pull toward the center of the clump. It pulls out with some roots attached. Pull all stems individually.

JANE WEBER/Special to the ChronicleThere are 17 Ragweed species in North America. The most common species have pollen so similar they are almost indistinguishable from each other to pollen counters. Ragweed pollen is a major cause of hay fever, sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes and coughing. they will re-sprout. Tender new shoots and leaves can be sprayed with systemic herbicide. The second allergy culprit is Ragweed, in theAmbrosia genus.It flowers at the same time as pretty Goldenrod and smelly Dog Fennel. There are 17 Ragweed species in North America. The most common A. artemisiifolia,A. trifida,andA. psilostachya have pollen so similar they are almost indistinguishable from each other to pollen counters. Hence, all ragweed counts are combined in one category. Ragweeds lacy leaves are deeply divided into many raggedy lobes. Stems are branched, sticky and hairy and tipped with long spikes of minute, greenish flowers. Wind-borne Ragweed pollen is a major cause of hay fever, sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes and coughing. Minute flowers bloom and pollen develops when temperatures dip below 60 degrees. Annual ragweed, Ambrosia artemisiifoliai,grows from seed each year. It reaches up to 6 feet tall in Central Florida and generally has one branched main stem. The root burrows deep into the soil and is more difficult to pull up than Dog fennel. A gardeners spade will be needed to dig and pry up Ragweed. Problem plants and alien invasives can be killed with a 3 percent solution of glyphosate herbicide. Always read and follow the label instructions. This readily available chemical enters green leaves, travels through the plants system to the roots and after about three days begins to kill the sprayed plant. As green plants absorb all the spray and lock it in their tissue, the short-lived chemical does not leach deep to the aquifer. Glyphosate has no residual soil activity. Never spray near springs, rivers or water. That is a job for a licensed, well-trained professional, state and county crews or the Department of Environmental Protection.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant.

Also, a tree with health issues will often have fewer, or smaller leaves and this extra sunlight on truck and branches will encourage more lichen to grow. Deciduous trees (those that lose their leaves in winter) like your Crape Myrtle make a good home for the lichen for the same reason. If your tree looks otherwise healthy my advice is to relax, grab a magnifying glass, and take a minute to enjoy this invader for the attractive and interesting plant it is.Gardener Gal Leslie Derrenbacker is a Master Gardener and Native Floridian.

Faceted decor PAGE E13 Jane Weber PAGE E9 Real Estate Digest PAGE E3 Associated PressWASHINGTON Average U.S. mortgage rates fell for the third straight week, making it more affordable to borrow to buy a home. Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday that the nationwide average for a 30-year loan fell to 4.12 percent from 4.19 percent last week. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, also declined to 3.3 percent from 3.36 percent. The 30-year rate is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Federal Reserve appears set at the end of this month to end its monthly bond purchases, which are intended to keep long-term borrowing rates low. Yet Fed officials have indicated that they will continue to hold shorter-term rates at near-zero levels until there are signs of rising inflation. Fed actions often influence the yield on the 10-year Treasury note, which affects mortgage rates. The 10-year note was trading at 2.32 percent at midday Thursday, down sharply from 2.41 percent a week earlier. Mortgage rates are falling as the housing market has cooled off. Average price growth has slowed, rising just 6.4 percent in August compared with a year ago, according to real estate data provider CoreLogic. Thats down from annual average gains of as much as 12 percent toward the end of last year. Similarly, sales of existing homes also declined in August. Fewer investors bought properties, and first-time buyers have yet to return to the market, according to the National Association of Realtors. Sales of new homes shot up in August, yet it remains below historic averages, according to Commerce Department data. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week.

They make such a beautiful impact, really popping with color, Kleinhelter says. If youve got space, an outdoor fireplace will allow you to host guests and also take in the amazing foliage, says Flynn. I have an outdoor fireplace in my own mountain house, and I deck it out in fall tones each year and just escape outside all day long. Outdoor cushions in summery colors can be replaced with warmer, autumnal shades. And Burnham suggests using clusters of scented candles outside in cinnamon, clove or other seasonal fragrances. Depending on your climate, Flynn even suggests hosting Thanksgiving dinner outside. Space heaters and a roaring fire can keep guests warm in most parts of the country, even on a November evening. And candlelight on the table adds to the drama. If youve got an outdoor spot thats covered and has a great view, Flynn asks, why not take the biggest dinner of the year outdoors?Choose the right shadesAll three designers are fans of white gourds and white pumpkins. We use them every year one way or another, Kleinhelter says. Grouping them on table settings or outside in multiples by the door is an easy arrangement. You can decorate with gourds and pumpkins without adding that crazy pumpkin orange to your homes exterior, Burnham says. Instead, pick other shades of orange and yellow that feel seasonal but arent quite so bright. Orange and yellow are the two colors most associated with fall style, Flynn says. But to get these tones right, youve got to stick with those that have just the right amount of brown in them. Otherwise the intended look will end up being somewhat childish or even summery. Stick with mustard tones rather than canary yellow, and as far as orange goes, its best to use burnt pumpkin tones rather than red oranges or yellow oranges. You can also mix in neutral shades of tan and soft brown. And I always like to throw my own spin on it all, Flynn says, by incorporating black.Use what you haveI dont think you need to go buy a new themed look for a season, Kleinhelter says. Take something you already have and rethink it, like the natural elements in your yard, and come up with a creative yet simple way to use them. White lights you bought for Christmas decorating can be just the thing to make fall outdoor decorating look special. We have jumbo vine balls we are going to wrap in lights and scatter in the yard, Kleinhelter says, in a pop art kind of way. Burnham agrees: You can never go wrong with white lights, she says. You can do a lot with just framing your door with really beautiful white lights, perhaps woven through twigs or vines. The look is glamorous, and also practical: If youve lined your front door with white lights woven through twigs in the fall, simply add some pine or holly branches to the mix when its time to decorate in December. FALLContinued from Page E8 BRIAN PATRICK FLYNN /HayneedleTo take advantage of the gorgeous autumnweather at his mountain house, the designer Flynn added a modern fireplace. To enhance fall style, Flynn changes up throw pillows in October by swapping summer tones pillow cases with those more suited forautumn.

will be appreciated. V. & F., Internet Dear V. & F.: The sculptures are interesting and decorative with a fantasy look. I was not able to find any information or track record of sales for Ronell LaLonde or any collector interest. The price you paid, $100 each, seems fair enough. All I can say at this time is potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can. Dear John: We are hoping you may be able to help us identify this set of four prints acquired during our garage sale excursions. We are not sure if they are original ink drawings or prints. They appear to have been done during the 1950s or so. They are nicely matted and framed, the drawings themselves measure about 4 inches by about 5.5 inches. Including the frames, the total size of each piece is 8.5 inches by 10 inches. There is no signature that we could find on the prints. We listen to your show regularly, and look forward to your response. Many thanks. K. & P ., Internet Dear K. & P .: I do not recognize your pictures. I see the retail store tag they were sold through is on the back side; perhaps the store is still in business something you might pursue. Open the backs and see if there are any notations about the image or perhaps the artist. Let us know if you find anything; if not, potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can. Dear John: I am attaching eight photographs of a mahogany bookcase that I have had for well over 65 years. My parents bought it for me from the estate of an elderly couple, and it has always been my understanding that it had been in their possession for more than 50 years. The fact that the backside of the bookcase is unfinished would seem consistent with cabinetmaking practices in the late 1800s. The wood appears to be natural mahogany. The sides, top, and bottom are solid boards. The back is made of thinner panels in either a tongue and groove or overlap arrangement. Can you give me some idea of its potential value? R.J.G., Internet Dear R.J.G.: Yes, you are correct about the time of production. The style of your bookcase is Renaissance Revival. It was manufactured in America during the last quarter of the 19th century, possibly in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Potential dollar value is in the $100 to $200 range, perhaps more on a lucky day. Dear John: We recently moved to Crystal River and have found your very helpful column on antiques. We have three pieces of Lalique glass and wonder who we should contact about their value. Our kids have no interest in them, so we are thinking of selling them. Any help will be greatly appreciated. T.D., Internet Dear T.D.: The French artist Ren Lalique produced a large body of decorative glass. His works are sought after by collectors worldwide. I would be glad to help you with potential dollar value and how best to sell the pieces. Take several good, clear photographs of each piece. Make sure to include the signatures on each piece as well.

DEANFOSDICK Associated PressIn simpler times, container gardening was small-scale landscaping using flowering annuals. Enjoy their color for one season and go with something new the next. But shifts toward food production and mixed container planting perennials with annuals have changed all that, creating the need for over-wintering. Many more people have limited or no garden space (and) as a result are doing their food gardening in containers, said Marianne Ophardt, an extension horticulturist with Washington State Universitys Benton County office. Cultivating small (perennial) fruit like raspberries, strawberries and blueberries is one way for these gardeners to grow their own fruit, and its fun. Ignore the rules about hardiness zones if youre trying to over-winter perennials in pots. All bets are off when containers are exposed to dehydrating winds and seasonal freeze-dry cycles. When we put woody or perennial plants in pots above the soil, they have lost the insulation provided by the soil and are exposed to potentially tissuekilling temperatures, Ophardt said. As a general rule, the least hardy parts of woody plants are the roots.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER12, 2014E5 E12SUNDAY, OCTOBER12, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000JJ2B Lic. #CBC1252474 www.exitrealtyleaders.com 2013 2013 2013 2013 2012 2012 2012 2012 352-794-0888 352-527-1112 352-447-4594 Realty Leaders 2011 2011 2011 2011 000JIYX 3 LOCATIONS TO SERVE YOU!

The best way to help plants survive the winter is to select the right varieties to begin with, she said. Buy the most cold-tolerant varieties you can find. I pick the hardiest available rated with a USDA zone that is two zones colder than my zone, Ophardt said. Some plants genetically are more perennial than others. Woody plants like shrubs, for example, usually are more cold-hardy than are soft-stemmed herbaceous perennials. Many techniques have evolved to help potted plants survive the winter. Several of the most common:Use bigger containers. Larger root masses and soil volumes are less susceptible to winter injury, said Hannah Mathers, an Ohio State University professor who specializes in commercial nursery and landscape extension.Dig them into the ground. Dig a pit and cover with poly (plastic sheeting) and straw to over-winter some smaller containers, Mathers said. Trapping the heat from the earth is an ideal way to overwinter plants.Group them. Less troublesome that digging can be grouping and placing them in a protected spot on the ground, such as an alcove or corner, and mulching them with compost or straw, Ophardt said.Bring them indoors. Anyplace cool but that will stay above freezing, Ophardt said. Most often an unheated garage meets this criterion. Potted plants should be prepared if theyre to be over-wintered in unheated structures, Mathers said. Watering should be reduced in late September and early October to help the plant acclimate, she said. Fertilizer should be stopped in early September to reduce lush growth and again allow for acclimation. Over-wintering perennials gives you a running start for the next growing season, especially if youre a fan of mixed container gardening. It supplies nearly filled containers that need only a few annuals to complete. Associated PressEdgar Allan Poe and Halloween are enmeshed like cobwebs on a lamppost. In classics like The Cask of Amontillado, The Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Masque of the Red Death and more, the master of horror fiction gave us imagery sinister masquerade balls, mysterious catacombs, menacing city streets that have long inspired Halloween aficionados and lovers of all things spooky. Retailers have plenty to offer for scary decorations or a Poe-inspired Halloween party:The RavenPerhaps the most iconic Poe symbol, the raven is easy to spot around Halloween. You can find large and small decorative versions of black birds that can be placed on buffet tables, bookshelves and front porches. Pottery Barns got metal crows for outdoor display; faux crows for indoor use have real feathers. (www.potterybarn.com) At Crate & Barrel, there are plates and napkins with an all-over raven graphic, as well as string lights and carved wooden ravens. (www.crateandbarrel.com) A black feather wreath makes a dramatic statement on a mantel. Or run a black boa down the length of a serving table. Youll find both in many Halloween dcor stores, but you can make your own, too. HGTV.com has instructions for creating a wreath using a straw form, and a black feather trim and boa from a crafts supply store.

Edgar AllanPoeand Halloween are enmeshed like cobwebs on a lamppost.Associated Press See POE / Page E7 PLANTSContinued from Page E5 KIMCOOK Associated PressFans of crisp, modern architecture and clean-lined shapes will love one of this falls strongest style trends: faceted dcor. For those who feel that the whole bold, geometric-pattern thing is nearing overexposure, faceted furniture and prints make sense, according to New York designer Elaine Griffin. Purer and streamlined, the faceted silhouette is the stylistic descendent of geometrics think geometrics deconstructed, she says. The style, says Griffin, can be modern (the faceted Hearst Tower in New York City oozes architectural chic), primitive (think Grand Canyon) and vintage (Art Deco and the Cubists). Faceted shapes are intrinsically more visually appealing because, whether theyre mirrored or not, they reflect more light, she says. A faceted element in a piece adds a stylish, decorative layer of dimension and surface interest without crossing over into the fussy, frilly or overdone. The gemstone shape is especially attractive in reflective materials mirror, glass, shiny metallics where light plays off the planes. The look is clean, contemporary and luxe. Yet in ceramic, wood or fabric, the polyhedron shape looks appealingly organic, as in honeycombs and cellular structures. Wayfairs got faceted dcor from several sources. Stacked, smoky, etched-glass facets make a smartlooking Borghese table. Imaxs lemon-yellow ceramic Chantal vase has a chic modern look. Three simple, faceted crystal blocks anchor Safaviehs Cube fixture, creating a simple yet elegant table lamp. Arteriors antiqued-brass faceted table lamp on an iron base has presence and personality. (www.wayfair.com) At Z Gallerie, cowhide is crafted into a faceted Odyssey rug in tones of gray and black. Here, too, a glamorous faceted mirrored table and the Portico mirror. (www.zgallerie.com) Faceted candlesticks from Godinger stack like crystal jewelry and would dress up a dining table. (www.lampsplus.com) At Target, a faceted cotton lampshade is available in sea blue, black and white. A silvery, faceted-glass column anchors a table lamp in the Xhilaration collection. (www.target.com) Designer Jason Phillips takes the motif into a different material, carving acacia wood into 3D faceted wall art at Crate & Barrel. (www.crate andbarrel.com) Lacquered aluminum provides the medium for a cool light fixture from Netherlands-based studio Sander Mulder. Their Carat lamp, available in graphite, jade, chrome or gold, features 36 facets sculpted into a pendant. (www.sandermulder.com) Capiz shells are hand-cut into facets and fitted into a wire frame to create a drum pendant lampshade available from West Elm. An angular side table is layered with antiqued mirror, making a useful little piece that could suit a formal or rustic space. (www.westelm.com) Israeli designer Mika Barrs Ori table lamp is a cloud of faceted cotton lighting perched on a paper clip style metal base. Theres a fluidity to the fixtures shape, and you can machine-wash the cotton shade. (www.touchofmodern.com) Dutch designer Marcel Wanders has created a line of unusual faceted tiles for Bisazza. Named Frozen Garden, the glossy black or white ceramics are available with a whimsical daisy motif, if desired. (www.bisazza.it) Wanders Stone stool for Kartell has a faceted hourglass shape, and comes in red, black, smoke, blue, amber or clear polycarbonate. Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola has designed a chunky, faceted acrylic vase, also for Kartell. Available in several soft hues, the Jelly vase could also hold a flameless candle.

DIGEST DEADLINES Submit information for the Real Estate Digest by 4 p.m. Thursday for publication Sunday. Dear Gardener Gal: This might be more of a Miss Manners question than a Gardener Gal question, but here goes: My husband and I live just a few doors down from my in-laws. We help each other out all the time, but I suspect one bit of helping is killing my lawn. My father-in-law insists on mowing our front lawn when he does his own. Sounds nice, but he mows too short. Sometimes he is out there mowing our lawn and we had just done it the day before! He says you should mow real short so you dont have to do it as often, but isnt this bad for the grass? BTW, his lawn looks terrible ... We dont want any hurt feelings, but we dont have the money to replace the grass. Help! What To DoDear What To Do: I had to wear two different hats to help you with this one. First, I put on my Master Gardener hat: You didnt say what type of turf you have, but no problem, since recommended mowing heights for the two most popular are essentially the same. Both St. Augustine and Bahia should be mowed to a height between 3 and 4 inches. Mowing shorter than this on a regular basis is very hard on the grass, and it will suffer. No more that a third of the grass blade should be removed with each mowing. OK, here comes my Miss Manners hat: Over a cup of coffee, share the UF/IFAS article Bahia for Florida Lawns (or the article on St. Augustine) with your father-inlaw and tell him you would like to thank him for all his hard work by helping him improve his lawn. Share your research and then take him to see some healthy lawns cut at the proper height. Hopefully, he will see his own lawn in a new light and be open to change. Mowing season is almost over, so you have all winter to work on him. If all else fails, offer to mow both lawns. Yes, really. Good luck. Dear Gardener Gal: I am worried about my Crape Myrtle tree. Its trunk and branches are covered by a mossy type plant. What can I spray to kill this invader? Worried About My TreeDear Worried: Worry no more! Thanks in part to your clear photo, I can tell you the plant covering your Crape Myrtle is a lichen and it will NOT harm your tree. Lichen is not a parasite. It takes nothing from the tree or shrub upon which it grows. Lichen is often blamed for killing trees simply because it is only noticed as a trees decline draws attention and owners do Help with lawn might be hurting it Leslie DerrenbackerGARDENER GAL See GARDENER / Page E7 GOT A NEWS TIP?
