Judicial candidates take varied paths MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerDenise Dymond Lyns uphill battle begins with a handshake. Mary Hatcher, on the other hand, continues the status quo. Both candidates for 5th Judicial Circuit court judge have far different strategies in the hopes of winning the Nov.4 election. The incumbent, Sandy Kautz, is out, having finished last in a four-way primary race. Hatcher, a Bushnell attorney, easily won the primary with 46percent of the vote. Dymond Lyn, an Inverness attorney, finished second with 21percent. The primary finish means nothing, as the general election is a new slate. Still, Dymond Lyn knows she has much ground to cover. I dont have the funding level that my opponent has, Dymond Lyn said. My alternative is a grassroots method of getting out and shaking as many hands as possible. Staff reportThe Citrus County Chroniclewill have its general election candidates forum on Tuesday, Oct.21 at the College of Central Florida on County Road491 in Lecanto. The forum begins at 7p.m.; doors open to the public at 6 p.m. Candidates for circuit court judge, county commission District2 and U.S. House of Representatives District11 will speak. Mosquito Control Board candidates will not speak; however, they will have tables set up to meet with voters and will be introduced by ChroniclePublisher Gerry Mulligan.Chronicle Forum set Tuesday Making a name MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleWithlacoochee Technical College Automation Production Technology instructor Laurie Newkirk, along with student Logan Clark, 20, and Denise Willis, WTC director, watch a robotic arm Clark programmed pick up and place an object in a predetermined spot. The name of WTC was changed last week and it is now a college. Withlacoochee changes terminology, not focus on career education ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerINVERNESS Students at Withlacoochee Technical Institute are now in college. As of Tuesday nights Citrus County School Board meeting, WTI shall now be called Withlacoochee Technical College. Denise Willis, director of WTC, and approximately 50students, instructors and citizens crowded the district board room seeking approval to change the name of their institution. The rationale to rename Withlacoochee Technical Institute is focused on increasing student access, increasing interest and increasing enrollment in our career and technical education programs, Willis said. Which would increase the number of program graduates earning an industry certification, enabling them to enter high skill, high wage careers in and around Citrus County. Willis said the name change for the career and technical college began last fall when Florida Tech Center Directors developed a language for a bill to address the need to become technical colleges. The bill passed in the House; however, it failed in the Senate. When this happened, the directors continued the discussion with legislative staff and ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerFor old-timers, Withlacoochee Vocational Technical School or Withlacoochee Technical Institute may still roll off of the tongue. But now you are going to have to catch yourself and replace these names with Withlacoochee Technical College when referring to the career and technical institution in Inverness. With a unanimous vote Tuesday, Citrus County School Board changed the name of the technical center to Withlacoochee Technical College. The opinion among high school students, staff and parents is that college is a more acceptable postsecondary educational option than attending a vocational technical school/center/institute, said Denise Willis, WTC director. The term vocational is viewed negatively, as well as the name technical institute. So, what does the new name mean for students, staff and parents? Willis sat down with a Chronicle reporter Wednesday to discuss the change. CHRONICLE: Many residents can rattle off a couple of different names that they are familiar with. What do you want them to say? WILLIS: I would like for people to refer to it as a technical college. We are very proud of our career and technical education programs.

MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS The bad news: Attorney General Pam Bondi will not issue a formal opinion on the Citrus Memorial hospital transaction. The good news: Theres no bad news probably. Hospital Corporation of America has decided to hire its own attorney to determine whether the $127 million transaction meets a new and untried state law regarding the sale or lease of public hospitals instead of relying on an attorney generals opinion. Citrus County Hospital Board attorney Bill Grant told trustees at their meeting Friday night that HCA expects an answer from its attorney on Monday. The possible answers: Yes, the transaction is legal; no, its not; or, more time is needed to research. One of those three things theyll tell us on Monday, Grant said. Grant added that he believes the answer will come back that the transaction does fit the state law. Now the balls in HCAs court, board chairwoman Debbie Ressler said. HCA had initially requested opinions from both the CCHB and Citrus Memorial Health Foundation, which holds the current hospital lease with the hospital board. The company then said it wanted a formal opinion from Attorney General Pam Bondi because the Citrus Memorial lease is the first transaction under the state law governing the sale or lease of public hospitals to for-profit companies. HCA had made that opinion a necessity before closing on the 50-year lease contract. The CCHB, foundation and Citrus County Board of County Commissioners all signed a request for a formal opinion. Bondis office, however, had indicated in recent weeks it was reluctant to answer the myriad questions raised by HCA and the three government agencies. Grant said Bondis office informed him this week the attorney general wouldnt be issuing an opinion. Oct. 31 is still the closing target date.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. Grant: HCA doesnt need AGs opinion Bill Grantexpecting to hear from HCA on Monday. Special to the ChronicleDid you know that garbage could have another life? That when you recycle a plastic bottle it could become a park bench, a cereal box a board game? That a food can could become a bike? The public is invited to learn more by participating in a guided tour of the recycling facilities in the county from 9:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 7. Keep Citrus County Beautiful is offering this tour to celebrate November as National Recycle Month and to provide a way to discover how recycling helps conserve our natural resources, reduce waste and make the community a great place to live. The tour will begin at 9:45 a.m. in the southeast corner parking lot of the Inverness Walmart on Gulf-to-Lake Highway (closest to Wendys). Climb aboard a bus and then head first to the county landfill to see the recycling opportunities provided by the county, tour the landfill to learn how different types of material are managed and how nonrecyclable items are disposed. The tour will continue on to Technology Conservation Group (TCG) to see how electronics are recycled, materials are recovered and the potential reuses of the recovered materials. The tour continues at Single Stream Processors Inc. to view the sorting process of single-stream recyclables and to view postconsumer products. Registration is required. Space is limited; call 352-201-0149 to reserve a seat. Be sure to wear closed-toe shoes and bring a hat. A $10 donation is suggested to help cover transportation costs. Tour of recycling facilities focuses on education ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerHERNANDORita Bosse stood quietly in the Old Hernando Elementary School on Saturday. She stared from one empty wall to another empty wall, reminiscing about the days when her children attended the historic school. To her, it seemed like yesterday. One of my favorite memories was being a room mom and stringing popcorn, she said before turning to look at the stage. And I remember looking at my son (now Homosassa Elementary School Principal Christopher Bosse) as he stood on that stage during his sixthgrade graduation. Now all she has is fond memories, which reinforce her beliefs in the need to restore the historic school. She joined hundreds Saturday at the 2014 Southern Heritage Festival and Cracker Cattle Drive, a fundraiser for the restoration of the Colonial Revivalstyle historic school and re-enactment of how life was in early Florida. Cattlemen would let pigs and cows roam. Then they would gather them and take them on a cattle drive to Tampa to sell, explained attendee Myron Lamb. Cattle, horses and riders began their two-day trek Friday morning near the Marion County line and camped out. After breakfast Saturday morning, they continued their drive toward Hernando before closing down the intersection of County Road 486 and U.S. 41 around 1:30 p.m. Look mommy, here they come! screamed 7-year-old Ashleigh Hall. Focused on the finish line, the cattle crossed the intersection nearing the historic Hernando School fundraiser. The Hernando Heritage Council of the Citrus County Historical Society hopes to one day convert the schoolhouse into a multifaceted community center.Contact Chronicle education reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-563-5660, ext. 1334, or eworthington@chronicleonline.com.

Meteorologists with the South Florida Water Management District say that the regions daily sea-breeze cycle wet-season rains ended Oct. 4. Officials said the seasonal rainfall left water levels in good condition in many areas, which will give water managers more flexibility with the water supply during the dry season. The dry season typically runs from mid-October through mid-May with about 18 inches of rain on average. South Florida remains under the districts year-round landscape irrigation rules that limit residential and commercial landscape watering.CDC sets Ebola training call for state hospitalsTALLAHASSEE Officials from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will hold a conference call on Ebola preparedness and training with Florida hospitals. Gov. Rick Scott said Saturday that the call scheduled Monday afternoon will provide guidance for proper use of personal protective equipment, safe handling of medical waste and effective clinical strategies within hospitals. Late Friday, the CDC approved a request from state health officials to redirect $7 million from federal grants to buy full-body suits for health care workers who may have contact with any potential victims of the virus. Scott has been critical of the CDCs response.Windsurfing races moved from Israel begin in FloridaCLEARWATER An international windsurfing competition that had to be moved from Israel because of a war began Saturday along Floridas Gulf Coast. The RS:X Youth World Windsurfing Championship will continue through Oct. 25 in Clearwater. Nearly 100 aspiring Olympians aged 18 and younger from 20 countries are participating in the races. Israel was going to host the tournament this year, but a war there over the summer prompted organizers to change the venue.

Birthday This will be a year of activity, not reflection. Everything you do will affect your future success, so keep the momentum going. Stay up to date with the latest trends in your field. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Opt for a change of scenery. A residential move may not be practical, but a short getaway to a national park or scenic destination can revive and rejuvenate you. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Practicality comes first. If you put your personal and financial matters in order, youll keep your day free of stress. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Dont let the advice of a critic or a disparaging remark cause you to give up on your dreams. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You will crave new ideas and stimulation. If you resolve to try something new, you wont be sorry. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Legal documents should be your focus. Taking care of small but tedious tasks will set your mind at ease. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) You will feel better about a troubled relationship once you get your feelings out in the open. Dont make accusations or ultimatums. Aries (March 21-April 19) Its a good time to complete unfinished projects and flesh out ideas that youve been contemplating. Get all your materials in order ahead of time to avoid scrambling. Taurus (April 20-May 20) You may feel like you are in a rut, but if you make personal changes that perk you up, it will give you enough incentive to get moving in a positive direction. Gemini (May 21-June 20) You will be dismayed by whats going on in your community. If you keep your plans in place, everything will turn in your favor, regardless of what develops. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Let the company of friends and pleasant surroundings help to elevate your mood. You need a break from the problems youve been faced with lately. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Reconnect with someone from your past. Its possible that you have more in common now than you did before. A stroll down memory lane is likely to bring fond recollections. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You may be confused about a current personal situation. Try not to dwell on negative happenings. Be patient and let things develop naturally. A new hobby will distract you.

One of the worlds most famous motorcycles the star-spangled Captain America chopper from Easy Rider is hitting the auction block. Or not. As the skeptical Billy from the 1969 counterculture cult film might have asked: Whats the reality, man? The red, white and blue, chromed-out Harley-Davidson to be auctioned off late Saturday in Calabasas comes with certificates of authenticity, according to the auction house, Profiles in History. More than one version of the bike was built for the movie, but according to the auction catalog, the one for sale is the only one that survived. According to the catalog, it was used in the climactic crash sequence at the end and restored by Dan Haggerty, who had a bit part in the film and vouched for its authenticity. Peter Fonda, who played Wyatt and rode the bike in the movie, also vouched for its authenticity, according to the auction house. The seller, Michael Eisenberg, also has a letter from the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa, which displayed the bike for 12 years, saying Eisenbergs is the only surviving Captain America bike. But another collector, Gordon Granger of Texas, says he owns the authentic chopper and also has a certificate signed by Haggerty to prove it. Haggerty acknowledged to the Los Angeles Times this week that he authenticated and sold two Captain America bikes. Now Haggerty says just one of the bikes is legitimate, and its Eisenbergs the one going up for sale with a $1 million minimum. The dust-up could affect the auction price, Eisenberg said. Im concerned. If you throw enough rocks at something, it casts a shadow of a doubt about something, he told The Associated Press. Im damaged. For his part, Fonda says he has no idea which bike is the real one. Theres a big rat stinking someplace in this, the 74-yearold actor, who co-wrote Easy Rider, told the Times. Eisenberg, a Los Angeles real estate agent and collector of Hollywood memorabilia, bought his chopper earlier this year from John Parham, a Midwestern motorcycle parts magnate who had purchased the bike from Haggerty 12 years earlier. Haggerty did not deny that he also signed Grangers authenticating documents. He now says he signed something that simply was not true. That was my mistake, Haggerty said. Its not the real bike.Medical examiner: Body that of missing actressSEATTLE The King County medical examiner has confirmed that a body found in a ravine in the Seattle suburb of Auburn is that of missing actress Misty Upham, known for her roles in August: Osage County, Frozen River and Django Unchained. In a statement, the medical examiners office said the 32year-old woman died Oct. 5. Thats the day her family told police the Native American actress was suicidal. Relatives reported her missing the next day. The medical examiner said the cause and manner of death are pending investigation. Foul play is not suspected. From wire reports Associated PressA vintage Easy Rider Captain America motorcycle is pictured Sept. 4 at Profiles in History auction house in Calabasas, Calif. Its principal authentication comes from Grizzly Adams actor Dan Haggerty, who had a bit part in Easy Rider and claims to have taken possession of the only bike that survived the filming of the druggy road movie. But Haggerty said this week that he has authenticated and sold two of the bikes.

Brenda Buzby (buzby1@gmail.com): Being from a family of Virginia sharecroppers and West Virginia family of coal miners, I totally understand the value of a dollar and yet was taught not to worship that dollar. I understand the difference in needs and wants. I started my interest in mosquito control as a fog truck driver in the late 1980s. I also served 16years as a past board member. I have a proven track record of standing up to the plate and making the tough decisions. Im very conservative and believe in accountability. Thats the life I lead and expect the same from others. If one talks the talk, they must walk the walk. Daniel Hafner (dhafner@inbox.com): I will not make any promises in an attempt to become elected other than a promise to put forth my best effort if I succeed in this election. I was born and raised in Chillicothe, Ohio. I graduated from Chillicothe High School in 1968 and moved to Citrus County in 1972. All of my children have graduated from high school in the Citrus County school system. I have an associate of science degree from Central Florida Community College in radiation protection, which I received in 1982. I worked at the Crystal River Unit3 nuclear facility from 1980-99. I worked as a health physics technician for 16 of those 19years. I do not seek contributions for this election because I do not plan to purchase any political signs or any type of ads. For me, its word of mouth only. Michael Dias (mdias2112@gmail.com): As a fifthgeneration resident of Citrus County I bring my love of this community to the board. Additionally, as a father of four, I see the need to safely control the mosquito population. My family loves to spend time outdoors in this beautiful county of ours. Using best practices for mosquito control while being fiscally responsible with the tax dollars we are trusted with will be my priorities. Bob Milan (rmilan1@aol.com): The qualities I bring to the board include, but are not included to, 24years of experience in pest and mosquito control. I am the only candidate that is certified in all categories of pest control by the state of Florida. I have an understanding of the important health issues, which includes disease prevention from mosquitoborne illnesses. There is a new disease that has swept through the Caribbean and has taken hold in the U.S., which we are in the forefront of education and making the citizens aware of prevention methods. I have a degree from Florida Atlantic University and as a consultant, vast experience in management, budgeting and finance. In my almost four years representing the citizens of Citrus County on the board through policies I initiated, we have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars with the help of my fellow commissioners, and have complete modernized our ability to make the Citrus County Mosquito Control the best mosquito fighting program in Florida. Janet Barek (janet.barek @yahoo.com): My working experiences taught me to control my temper and to think before I speak; how to be polite with frustrated people and that I am part of a team so what I do affects others. A person must be accurate, paying close attention to details, and working within given parameters was important. As a teacher, I used my skills to motivate students to succeed. My husband and I have been married for 44years, we have three grown children. Over my married life I practiced knowing when to give and when to take and how to budget. My life evolves around my passion to do for others, so before making the decision to run for office, I began attending mosquito control board meetings. I feel I am capable of giving Citrus County residents my best and watching their tax dollars be spent getting the best bang for their bucks. Leon McClellan (leon@ mbproducts.com): I feel my professional background uniquely qualifies me for a position on the mosquito control board. As managing partner of M&B Dairy Farm in Lecanto, I have experience working with pesticides, insecticides and fungicides. I also understand budgeting. Environmental stewardship at M&B is a priority and we have been recognized locally, statewide and nationally for best management practices. I am also very active in our community. I serve on several agricultural boards as well as the Citrus County chamber board. I am a Mason and a Shriner. I support and raise money for numerous local nonprofits. My goal is to utilize best management practices to ensure the health and welfare of our residents. I will work toward fiscal responsibility and efficiency. I will work with other agencies such as the sheriffs office, county aquatics department and the Department of Health to enhance services, while keeping it affordable to or citizens. Bill Murray (murraychar@ hotmail.com): Perhaps the most unique quality I would bring to the mosquito control board is my previous experience serving as an elected official on the Citrus County School Board. This experience gives me insight into the complexities of an elected board, including state statutes, policy, procedures, compromise and teamwork. During my eight-year tenure on the school board, many complicated and challenging issues were received through a cooperative effort with my colleagues. I believe this experience will enable me to work effectively and efficiently with fellow commissioners on the mosquito control board.

Judges need to continue to find creative ways to serve those who find themselves in the court system without creating more costs and expenses for litigants.Issue No. 2: All parties to court proceedings should be treated with dignity and respect. I believe there is currently a lack of dignity and respect shown in court proceedings.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014 A7 000JFSD A Message from Sheriff Jeff Dawsy SHERIFF J EFFREY J. D AWSY OCTOBER 2014 VOL. 8 NO. 4 Behind the BADGE Hot Topics Thank You PSOs . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Page 2 Know Your Neighbors . . . . . . . . . Page 3 Time to TestFire Prevention . . . Page 3 When to Call an ACO . . . . . . . . . . Page 4 October is Crime Prevention Month . . . . . . . Page 4 Color Citrus Purple . . . . . . . . . . . . Page 4 In 2010, the Sheriffs Office implemented a new way to fight crime called ILP (Intelligence Led Policing). As Ive written about before, ILP was essentially a paradigm shift within this agency. We let go of the old way of doing business, like measuring success based on arrest numbers or traffic tickets. Instead, we embraced the well known fact that a large percentage of crime is done by those who have committed crimes before. With ILP, we focus most of our attention on active and repeat offenders. Initially, we began the ILP focus with our intelligence and tactical impact units, gradually rolling it out to patrol deputies and major crimes. Although we started to notice immediate successes, the implementation didnt happen overnight. It took a few years before everyone really understood the new concept and embraced it. 2011, 2012 and 2013 brought further tweaking and improvements to the program, and we saw reductions in crime that we didnt think were even possible in this day and age. In 2014, I challenged my staff to take ILP to the next level by implementing it in our Judicial Services Division. This division consists of the Duty Office, Civil Unit, Court Security Unit and Prisoner Transport/GPS Monitoring Unit. The Court Security Unit, housed at the Inverness courthouse, is responsible for all courthouse security. Anyone who enters the courthouse can be assured of their safety thanks to deputies who have been specially trained to manage all facets of courthouse security. From metal detectors to mail processing, courtroom security to handling crowded Board of County Commissioner meetings, the security team in place has successfully kept disruptions to a minimum. Thanks to the cross-training of sworn personnel as firefighters and paramedics they have even saved a few lives in the process. Now, in addition to regular duties, deputies at the courthouse are making an even bigger impact on crime. Just like patrol deputies, bailiffs (who also serve as security officers) at the courthouse have the opportunity to run into criminals on a daily basis. The only difference is these criminals are going to court. JUDGMENT DAY JUDICIAL SERVICES DIVISION INTEGRATES INTELLIGENCE LED POLICING See MESSAGE page 2

A8SUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 2 BEHIND THE BADGE 000JFSC Since the 2014 implementation of ILP in judicial services, courthouse and civil personnel have been especially tuned into those who have outstanding arrest warrants. Just since April of this year, the security unit has arrested 21 people with outstanding warrants and one person on probable cause. This doesnt include the number of arrests that civil deputies are making when they discover someone has a warrant while serving civil papers. In addition, personnel have provided over 100 important ILP updates to intelligence personnel. These enhancements of ILP have made a huge difference in putting our offenders behind bars again. Although statutorily this agency is only required to provide security for the judges, magistrate and anyone holding a court session, Im proud to say the BOCC has entrusted the entire security of the building to my staff. Obviously, they take their jobs very seriously and we should all commend them for it. So, even though you may not see these badge-wearing heroes patrolling the streets in your neighborhood, each and every one of them is making a difference in our community every day. If youd like to learn more about the Judicial Services Division, or any of the different facets of the Sheriffs Office, I invite you to attend our free Citizens Academy. Simply visit our website at www.sheriffcitrus.org. MESSAGE from page 1 THANK YOU, PSO s The Citrus County Sheriffs Office Public Service Officers (PSOs) are a team of 21 members who handle calls for service that do not require law enforcement authority. They volunteer thousands of hours in their quest to ease the workload of our patrol deputies. These non-paid employees are never satisfied with the status quo. Since their inception, they have always sought out additional duties to help their patrol partners with the day to day calls for service. The PSOs are not limited to just the patrol division but also help out in the Judicial Division handling civil process service as well as the marine patrol unit and the Crime Prevention Unit. From investigating crashes, vandalisms, and thefts, to recently being trained to process minor crime scenes, our PSOs are an extremely valuable and trusted partner in making Citrus County a safe place where citizens and members of the Sheriffs Office unite to respond to the needs of our community. PSO Bob McIntosh assists at the scene of a vehicle crash. PSO Carey Mandell & PSO Bob McIntosh pose for a picture during a Cognitive Training class.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014 A9 000JFSB Its Time to Test. Its Time to Test. October is National Crime Prevention Month and unfortunately no neighborhood is completely immune to crime. But do you know the people that live around you? Do you know their children or what they do for a living? You and your family can certainly be in tune with things happening in your neighborhood if you just reach out and get to know the people that live near you. A cohesive neighborhood is a great tool in protecting against property crime. Neighbors that band together can help each other keep property crimes down. Neighborhood watch groups are one of the most proven long lasting crime prevention tools that are in the country. The reason that it works is because neighborhood watch is dependent upon people who live in a small geographic area to be alert and aware of each other and of things that are suspicious. Law enforcement is not the first defense against crime, its really the citizens, and so we work with many of you on a daily basis and help push that crime out. Neighborhoods gain reputations amongst criminals as either safe havens or high risk. If you have the type of neighborhood that looks out for one another and calls the police every time you see anyone suspicious around, the chance of being caught in a crime goes up drastically. The idea of the watch is neighbors being observant of their home surroundings, and that they have a means of communicating with each other and with law enforcement when needed. Some simple but effective tips used in the Neighborhood Watch program include: Know the names and faces of your neighbors on all sides of your home (including the children). Be familiar with the cars your neighbors drive. Be aware of your neighbors landscaper, pool cleaner and housekeeper if they use a regular service. Dont ignore a neighbors burglar alarm and presume that it sounded in error; make a phone call to the neighbor or police. The Citrus County Sheriffs Office has many ways to help you and your family or your neighborhood fight crime. All you have to do is visit www.sheriffcitrus.org. BEHIND THE BADGE 3 COMMANDERS CHALLENGE: Know Your Neighbor! You and your family can certainly be in tune with things happening in your neighborhood if you just reach out and get to know the people that live near you. COMMANDER BUDDY GRANT More than one-third (37%) of home fire deaths resulted from fires in which no smoke alarms were present at all. NATIONAL FIRE PROTECTION ASSOCIATION STUDY 2007-2011 Three out of fivehome fire deaths resulted from fires in properties w ithout working smoke alarms, according to the National Fire Protection Association study from 2007-2011. The study continued to reveal, More than one-third (37%) of home fire deaths resulted from fires in w hich no smoke alarms were present at all. One-quarter (23%) of the deaths were caused by fires in properties in which smoke alarms w ere present but failed to operate. The statistics are disturbing. Deaths could be prevented by maintaining smoke alarms and practicing fire evacuation drills in the home. The first defense of escaping an uncontrolled house fire is to install, maintain, and regularly test smoke alarms. Smoke alarms should be tested and maintained in accordance with the manufacturers recommendations to ensure the alarms will operate during a fire. Some recommendations are to test monthly, replace batteries every six months, and replace the smoke alarm every 10 years. Smoke alarms provide a mechanism to wake a sleeping person. They are not effective unless the occupant is awakened and recognizes the need to escape. When awakening from a deep sleep a person is confused and may be unaware of their surroundings. This process takes precious time that is necessary to escape a fast moving fire. How do we overcome the time factor? Practice fire escape plans and have regular fire drills! Simple tips for escaping a dangerous fire: 1. Know two ways out of every room, especially bedrooms or other sleeping areas. Windows should be considered for a means to escape. Verify that windows are functional and easy to operate. 2. Since hot or warm smoke rises, remain low when escaping a smoke filled room. 3. Feel closed doors with the back of the hand to assure it is safe to open it. If it is hot, seek another exit. If not hot, open the door slowly. If smoke is in the next room, seek another exit. If its not smoky, continue to the outside. 4. Establish a meeting place that is a safe distance from the home and away from traffic areas. This will be a location where everyone meets after their escape. 5. ONCE OUT, STAY OUT! DO NOT go back in the burning building for any reason. Immediately notify the responding firefighters of anyone that may be missing. REMEMBER: Insta ll, maintain, and test smoke alarms as recommended by the manufacturer. Also, establish a fire evacuation plan and PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE escape plans!

NANCY SUTO, CRIME PREVENTION National Crime Prevention Month is a time to reinforce the importance of community safety. Effective crime prevention and community safety always begin with partnerships between the community and the Sheriffs Office. This year the National Crime Prevention Council developed and selected a theme for each week in October. Each topic focuses on a specific crime trend and is designed to give preventative tips to keep you from becoming a victim. The themes and weeks are as follows: Week 1: Community Engagement Week 2: Neighborhood and Home Safety Week 3: Personal Safety Week 4: Cyber Safety Here are a few suggestions on how you can help strengthen our crime prevention partnership. When we work together we can reduce crime. COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT Join your neighborhood watch program. Attend or host a Crime Prevention presentation at your next homeowners association meeting or club event. Organize a safe neighborhood event for Halloween. NEIGHBORHOOD AND HOME SAFETY ALWAYS lock your doors. Call the Sheriffs Office at 352-7463484 to place a vacation watch on your home while youre out of town. Call 911 if you see any suspicious activity in your neighborhood. Keep an eye out for neighbors and let them know if you see anything unusual. Call Deputy Nancy Suto at 352-5273703 for a FREE residential or commercial security survey. PERSONAL SAFETY Always be alert and aware of your surroundings. If possible-dont walk alone. When returning to your car, have keys in hand. Only park in well lit area. CYBER SAFETY Dont give out personal information. Only friend people you know. Scams/fraud: If it seems too good to be true, it is. Dont post vacation pictures until AFTER your return. The month-long commemoration reinforces the fact that crime prevention pays off, helps keep local communities safe and reduces the opportunity for crime to occur. Look for the Crime Prevention table at community events throughout the month of October. Additional information on all of this years themes will be available. You may also call Crime Prevention at 5273703 to schedule a free security survey. Questions frequently arise about animals in Citrus County.

As a Citrus County business owner for over 26years with a degree in business, I will use my business background and education to reduce and stabilize taxes by cutting wasteful spending and increase efficiency.

WYKE will be on hand to broadcast the event. The Chroniclewill announce broadcast dates. The format is for judicial candidates Denise Dymond Lyn and Mary Hatcher to give speeches. There will not be questions for the judicial candidates. County commission and U.S. House races, however, will be set up in a debate format. County commission candidates Ron Kitchen Jr. and Joey White will each have opening remarks. A question-and-answer period will follow and then both candidates will have time for a closing statement. The same format is for U.S. House candidates Rich Nugent and Dave Koller. Attendees will be encouraged to write out questions for the candidates that will be considered by the moderator. The moderator will not take questions directly from the audience. We ask that questions stick to issues that both candidates can answer, as opposed to questions directed toward one candidate only. Attendance is free and candidates are not charged a fee to participate. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County will be on hand selling refreshments. While Hatcher has more campaign donations from attorneys and others than Dymond Lyn, she also is contributing heavily to the campaign with her own money. Reports show Hatcher contributing $69,000 toward an $88,000 total. Dymond Lyn, on the other hand, has $17,039 collected, including $3,000 of her own. Hatcher has put much of her money into billboards and direct mail pieces, hoping to get the word out to a vast circuit that covers five counties. I have confidence in my ability to serve the folks in the circuit, Hatcher said. When candidates invest in themselves, they believe its time to serve their community. Hatcher said shes not leaving the entire campaign up to billboards and mail pieces. Im at forums and events throughout the circuit, she said. Its a little bit geographically challenging. In the primary, Dymond Lyn defeated Hatcher in Citrus County but lost the other four counties by significant margins. Dymond Lyn said shes hoping to make up ground by reaching out to community leaders. It comes down to the grassroots effort to reach out to community leaders where Im not as well known, she said. Align yourself with those community leaders and their issues. Thats what Ive been doing a lot of. She hopes that face-to-face contact with voters will resonate on Election Day. Well have to see, Dymond Lyn said. Im hoping.

another college in Citrus County? WILLIS: We are operating in two different systems. College of Central Florida has given up some of the courses that we offer. A lot of times, we are the only game in town for some of the career and technical programs. We dont overlap in missions at all. Our programs are career and technical programs and adult education. We dont offer English, math, science, social studies, etc. ... That is not our mission. Thats the mission of the College of Central Florida. We are clock-hour certificate programs. CHRONICLE: Does your accreditation change? WILLIS: We are accredited by the Council on Occupational Education (COE) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. We did not change our accreditation. The only thing we need to do is send a change-of-name application to the council so that all of our certificates will reflect the new name. CHRONICLE: Will there be a fee increase since it is now a college? WILLIS: There will be no fee increase. Our tuition and fees are regulated by the Legislature. CHRONICLE: Do students receive certificates or diplomas? WILLIS: Students completing a program of study currently receive a certificate of completion. The certificate will read Withlacoochee Technical College. It is the same certificate and clock-hour certificate. None of that is changing. CHRONICLE: How do clock hours work? WILLIS: When potential students meet with our counselors and our financial adviser during the admissions process, they will explain to the students that we do not award credits for the courses completed by WTC. They will, however, explain that our programs are articulated with several colleges and the college can award credit. They can also receive credit based on their earning of an industry certification as per the statewide articulation agreements. CHRONICLE: What was the feeling this morning when your students found out that they are now going to college? WILLIS: Just this morning I had a student stop me and say, Im in college. He was so happy. That is what this is all about. An institute does not do this place justice. CHRONICLE: And how did you celebrate last night? WILLIS: I went home and had a bowl of cereal. the Florida Department of Education. Staff members pointed out there was no statue that prohibited technical centers from changing their name to technical colleges, Willis said. Three technical centers in Broward County, followed by Lake Technical College, First Coast Technical College and Pinellas Technical College, piloted the movement. At the local level, Willis surveyed staff, students and student advisory enhancement council members on their desires. It is where we want to be and what we have always talked about since I have been here, Willis said. Across the state, I think it is going to give us the recognition that tech centers deserve. The name change support group joined Willis in applause Tuesday while they lifted their signs that read We are going to college when the CCSB unanimously approved the name change. Anything that we can do to help students be successful is really what we want, said school board member Pat Deutschman.Contact Chronicle education reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-563-5660, ext. 1334, or eworthington@chronicleonline.com.

Associated PressWEST PALM BEACH Medical marijuana supporters have had a singular focus in making their case to voters across Florida: sick and suffering patients. Many backers also see the money at stake in the debate over Amendment2. Thousands have attended workshops about how to start marijuana businesses. Farmland filled with tomatoes, lettuce and cucumbers awaits the possibility of being replanted with a new leafy green. And entrepreneurs ready to offer everything from legal services to cannabis-infused chocolate-covered pretzels stand by for a chance to expand into the fourthlargest state. Millionaires are going to be made, said Steven Siegel, CEO of Fort Lauderdale-based BioTrackTHC, which offers an inventory-control system and other services to marijuana businesses. Siegel has been seeing month-over-month growth of about 30percent and expects $8million in revenue by years end in states where some form of marijuana legalization has already taken place. Though he hears from many aspiring entrepreneurs who want to open dispensaries, Siegel says there is money to be made in countless ancillary services, from lab testing to fertilizer to delivery services. Like all statewide ballot measures, Amendment2 will require 60percent support in the Nov. 4 election to pass. To obtain marijuana, a patient would have to get a doctors certification of their condition, which in turn would qualify them for a patient ID card they can use at licensed dispensaries. Ata Gonzalez, a Florida native who is now CEO of California-based GFarmaLabs, believes passage would further open his companys potential to become a national brand for its various marijuana products, including dozens of different chocolate bars, truffles and other candies. Because of federal drug laws, companies such as Gonzalezs arent able to centralize production and ship marijuana-infused products from state to state. Gonzalez envisions entering partnerships in which his company teaches other business how to create GFarmaLabs products, providing everything but the marijuana. Florida has needed something for many years now to bring them back into the economy, he said. The enthusiasm has fueled attendance at marijuana business seminars. Roadside billboards promise a new industry is coming to Florida. Any industry will depend in large part on the Department of Health. If Amendment2 passes, the agencys regulations would determine the ease of opening a dispensary, and as a result, could dictate the ultimate size of the economic impact. The health agencys analysis of Amendment2 gives a glimpse at what could happen with passage: an estimated 1,789 treatment centers serving 417,252 patients; sales totaling anywhere from $331 million to $5.6 billion; and sales tax revenues of about $19.9 million up to $338 million. Additional tax revenues could be generated from property taxes on dispensaries and other businesses. The real ballot headscratcher isnt usually whos running for state or local office, but the question of voting yes or no on retaining district appellate court justices. In Florida, we dont elect district judges. They are appointed by the governor. Voters, however, get to decide if they stay in office. So, every six years, their names appear on the ballot for us to give a thumbs up or thumbs down. Unless you have personal experience with an appeals justice, or some major case captures the headlines, most people wouldnt know an appeals justice if he/she walked into the room. The Florida Bar, however, provides biographical information on all the appeals court judges and explains the merit retention process at its website, www.florida bar.org. The 5th District Court of Appeals justices on the ballot are: Wendy Berger, Kerry Evander, Charles Alan Lawson, Richard Orfinger, William David Palmer, Thomas Sawaya and F. Rand Wallis. Here is some information about the ballot amendments, plus the countys 1-cent sales surtax for road resurfacing:AMENDMENT 1What the ballot says: Dedicates funds to acquire and restore Florida conservation and recreation lands.What it does: Dedicates 33percent of the state documentary tax over 20years to purchase and restore state wetlands, forests, wildlife habitat lands and land protecting fresh water sources. This the tax paid on property transactions.What it doesnt do: Raise taxes. The documentary tax stays the same; its a portion of that revenue that would go for the land program.Whos behind it: An environmental group called Floridas Water and Land Legacy, a coalition of organizations, led by former governor and U.S. Sen. Bob Graham. Graham highlighted a Speak up Homosassa Springs event in September at the state wildlife park to draw attention to the amendment.Whos against it: Florida Chamber of Commerce, which opposes any amendment that directs how revenue is spent rather than leaving that decision up to the Legislature. On the Web for: www.voteyes on1fl.orgOn the Web against: www.flchamber.com.AMENDMENT 2What the ballot says: Use of marijuana for certain medical conditions.What it does: Allows the medical use of marijuana for patients with debilitating diseases as defined by a doctor.What it doesnt do: Legalize marijuana for recreational use.Whos behind it: High-profile Orlando attorney John Morgan is the face and finances behind Amendment 2. Morgan said patients with debilitating diseases, such as his brother Tim, who is paralyzed, should have access to medical marijuana to ease their nausea and fight weight loss.Whos against it: The Florida Medical Association opposes the amendment, along with law enforcement and many members of the state Legislature, including State Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, R-Inverness. Smith and Morgan debated the issue Wednesday night in Inverness.On the Web for: www.unitedfor care.orgOn the Web against: www.voteno2.orgAMENDMENT 3What the ballot says: Prospective appointment of certain judicial vacanciesWhat it does: Requires the governor to fill prospective vacancies on the district courts of appeal or state Supreme Court when the judge reaches mandatory retirement age or does not qualify for ballot retention, or is not retained by voters. Currently the governor cannot fill an expected vacancy until the judges term of office ends.What it doesnt do: Affect local judicial vacancies. Whos behind it: The Legislature placed this measure on the ballot (unlike Amendments 1 and 2, which were citizen-driven).Whos against it: Several newspaper editorial boards, who say the amendment is a backhanded way for the next governor or Rick Scott in a second term to name replacements for three Supreme Court justices who retire in January 2019 at the same time as the start of a new governors term. The governor could appoint three new justices just as his term is ending.On the Web for: No organized effort promoting the amendment.On the Web against: No organized effort opposing the amendment.CITRUS COUNTY REFERENDUMWhat the ballot says: Sales surtax for roadway maintenance and resurfacing within Citrus County. What it does: Increases the sales tax from 6percent to 7percent and uses the additional funds to resurface all county-owned residential roads over a 20-year period. Crystal River and Inverness will share in the surtax as well.What it doesnt do: Build new roads, pave private roads or repave major roads.Whos behind it: The county commission voted 4-1 to place this measure on the ballot. Commissioners Scott Adams voted against it. Whos against it: While several people spoke against the surcharge at county commission meetings, there is no organized opposition. Incoming county commissioner Scott Carnahan is against the sales tax increase.On the Web for: www.bocc. citrus.fl.usOn the Web against: No organized effort against the referendum.Mike Wright/staff writerA14SUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEELECTION2014 000JBQH 000JGM3 Specialty Gems 600 SE Hwy. 19, Crystal River 795-5900 www.specialtygems.net Est. 1985 Exceptional Jewelry Custom Designs Quality Repair Personalized Service WE BUY GOLD!

Associated PressA county bus is stranded Saturday on Highway 11 in Naalehu, Hawaii, where heavy rains from Hurricane Ana flooded the road. Hurricane Ana was on course to miss Hawaii by more than 100 miles, but was generating high waves, strong winds and heavy rains. Friends, relatives mourn Ebola victimSALISBURY, N.C. Thomas Eric Duncan was remembered Saturday as a big-hearted and compassionate man whose virtues may have led to his infection with Ebola in his native Liberia and subsequent death as the first victim of the disease in the United States. About 40 friends and family members collected inside the 100-seat church and listened as speakers remembered Duncan. His weeping mother sat in the front row. Duncan left Ivory Coast and learned auto mechanics and welding at a United Nations school for refugees in Ghana, relatives said. He came to the United States hoping to work multiple jobs, save money and build a future, said his relative, Harry Korkoya of Woodbridge, Virginia. Duncan is also survived by four children, none of whom could attend the memorial service. The four people living in the Dallas apartment where Duncan stayed are due to leave quarantine next week after the end of a 21-day incubation period for the disease.Pit bull vote aims to settle disputesENGLEWOOD, Colo. Sharee Talbot wants her dog back. For now, though, she has to drive out of town to visit Buddy because the 2-year-old pit bull isnt allowed in her hometown of Aurora. Talbot had to give up Buddy last year after an Aurora animal control officer seized him for violating citys ban on pit bulls. Voters will consider repealing their 9-year-old pit bull ban on November ballots. Auroras vote, the first in the nation on a generalelection ballot, could presage other public votes on so-called breed-specific legislation, laws that either ban some types of dogs or require they be sterilized. Aurora is a rarity for putting the question to a public vote. Aurora officials sent the question to voters after years of fielding complaints that its pit bull ban is unfair and punishes dogs instead of negligent owners.Ambush suspect sighting reportedCANADENSIS, Pa. A rifle-toting man with a mudcovered face who was spotted in Pennsylvanias Pocono Mountains is believed to be the suspect who has spent more than five weeks on the run after a deadly ambush at a state police barracks, officials said Saturday. A woman out for a walk Friday night spotted the man shortly after 9 p.m., state police Lt. Col. George Bivens said. Police believe the man was Eric Frein, an expert marksman who has eluded capture despite an intense manhunt. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS ...and to the east Associated PressWorkers use a chainsaw to remove an uprooted tree from a street in downtown Saturday after hurricane Gonzalo hit the island in Hamilton, Bermuda. The hurricane crushed trees and flattened power lines during an hours-long battering. The storms center crossed over Bermuda Friday night and its winds and heavy surf continued to whip at the island early Saturday as Gonzalo quickly moved northward over the Atlantic. Canada will send experimental Ebola vaccine to WHOOTTAWA, Ontario The Canadian government said it will start shipping its experimental Ebola vaccine to the World Health Organization on Monday for possible use in the West African countries hardest hit by the outbreak. The government said in a news release Saturday that the Public Health Agency of Canada is supplying the vaccine to the U.N. agency in Geneva. The WHO is the international coordinating body for battling the Ebola outbreak which has killed more than 4,500 people in West Africa. The news release said Canada will send 800 vials of its experimental vaccine in three separate shipments.Container ship adrift againPRINCE RUPERT, British Columbia A disabled Russian container ship carrying hundreds of tons of fuel is adrift again, but officials said Saturday there is no immediate risk of it reaching shore, hitting rocks and causing a spill. Royal Canadian Navy Lt. Greg Menzies said a tow line from the Coast Guard ship Gordon Reid got detached, but noted the vessel is now 24 nautical miles away from shore. Menzies said efforts are under way to get the line re-attached. The Canadian Coast Guard vessel Sir Wilfrid Laurier and the U.S. Coast Guard cutter Spar were also on to assist if needed, while an ocean-going tugboat was expected to arrive in the area late Saturday. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressThick smoke from an airstrike by the U.S.-led coalition rises in Kobani, Syria, on Saturday while fighting continued between Syrian Kurds and the militants of Islamic State group, as seen from Mursitpinar on the outskirts of Suruc, at the Turkey-Syria border. Kobani, also known as Ayn Arab, and its surrounding areas, has been under assault by extremists of the Islamic State group since mid-September and is being defended by Kurdish fighters. Associated PressWASHINGTON For the third straight year, millions of Social Security recipients, disabled veterans and federal retirees can expect historically small increases in their benefits come January. Preliminary figures suggest the annual cost-ofliving adjustment, or COLA, will be less than 2 percent. That translates to a raise of about $20 a month for the typical Social Security beneficiary. The government is scheduled to announce the COLA on Wednesday, when it releases the latest measure of consumer prices. By law, the COLA is based on inflation, which is well below historical averages so far this year. For example, gas prices are down from a year ago, and so is the cost of clothing. Prices for meat, fish and eggs are up nearly 9 percent, but overall food costs are up less than 3 percent, according to the governments inflation report for August. Medical costs, which disproportionately affect older people, are only 1.8 percent higher. But good news at the pump means bad news for benefit increases. Many older people who rely on Social Security are feeling the pinch of tiny benefit increases year after year. You lose that increase, not only in the short-term, you lose the compounding over time, said Mary Johnson of The Senior Citizens League. For the middle class, for people that dont qualify for lowincome programs, they are dipping into savings or they are borrowing against their homes. The Senior Citizens League projects the COLA will be 1.7 percent, which is in line with other estimates. Economist Polina Vlasenko, a research fellow at the American Institute for Economic Research, projects the COLA will be between 1.6 percent and 1.8 percent. Congress enacted automatic increases for Social Security beneficiaries in 1975, when inflation was high and there was a lot of pressure to regularly raise benefits. For the first 35 years, the COLA was less than 2 percent only three times. If the COLA is less than 2 percent next year, it would be the fifth time in six years. This years increase was 1.5 percent, the year before it was 1.7 percent. More than 70 million people receive benefits affected by the annual COLA. The average monthly payment is $1,191. A 1.7 percent raise would increase the typical monthly payment by about $20. The COLA also affects benefits for about 4 million disabled veterans, 2.5 million federal retirees and their survivors, and more than 8 million people who get Supplemental Security Income, the disability program for the poor. The COLA is calculated by comparing consumer prices in July, August and September each year with prices in the same three months from the previous year. If prices go up over the course of the year, benefits go up. NOTE: The 1983 adjustment was delayed until January 1984; there were no increases in 2010 and 2011.

The airstrike targeted a distribution station in the town of Khasham in the oil-rich province of Deir el-Zour late Friday, Deir el-Zour Free Radio, an activist collective, said on its Facebook page. The collective named four of those killed and said another four charred bodies were placed in a nearby mosque. It said the slain men were mostly fuel tanker drivers. Another activist group, the Deir el-Zour Network, described long tongues of flames from the strike. The incident was also reported by the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which relies on a network of activists inside Syria. The U.S.-led coalition has aggressively targeted IS-held oil facilities in Syria, which provide a key source of income for the militants. But such strikes also endanger civilians, which could undermine long-term efforts to destroy the group. Other airstrikes late Friday targeted oil wells in the Deir elZour province, the activists said. There was no immediate comment by the U.S. military. The U.S.-led coalition began a bombing campaign against the IS group in Syria in late September after striking at the extremists in neighboring Iraq, where they also hold swaths of territory. In recent days, much of the coalitions strikes have focused around the Syrian border town of Kobani, also known as Ayn Arab, which IS militants have been trying to seize since mid-September. On Saturday, Islamic State militants fired a barrage of mortar rounds toward Kobani, focusing their efforts near the border crossing with Turkey. Some of the shells landed in Turkish territory, but did not cause any damage. As gun and mortar fire in the town echoed across the border, at least five coalition airstrikes sent plumes of black smoke into the sky. Idriss Nassan, a senior Kobani official, said the airstrikes had helped halt the advance of the militants. But he said the Kurdish fighters defending Kobani would need more weapons and ammunition to save the town. Airstrikes are not enough, said Nassan. Its reduced ISIS, but its not enough to defeat them, he said. The Kurdish forces efforts to rearm have been stymied by Turkey, which has long viewed the main Kurdish fighting force in Kobani the Peoples Protection Units, or YPG with suspicion over its links to the Kurdish PKK insurgent group operating in Turkey. Turkey has also demanded that the coalition widen its campaign against the IS group by providing greater aid to Syrian rebels, who are battling both the extremist group and President Bashar Assads forces. Associated PressVATICAN CITY Catholic bishops scrapped their landmark welcome to gays Saturday, showing deep divisions at the end of a two-week meeting sought by Pope Francis to chart a more merciful approach to ministering to Catholic families. The bishops failed to approve even a watered-down section on ministering to homosexuals that stripped away the welcoming tone of acceptance contained in a draft document earlier in the week. Rather than considering gays as individuals who had gifts to offer the church, the revised paragraph referred to homosexuality as one of the problems Catholic families have to confront. It said people with homosexual tendencies must be welcomed with respect and delicacy, but repeated church teaching that marriage is only between man and woman. The paragraph failed to reach the two-thirds majority needed to pass. Two other paragraphs concerning the other hotbutton issue at the synod of bishops whether divorced and civilly remarried Catholics can receive Communion also failed to pass. It appeared that the 11862 vote on the gay section might have been a protest vote by progressive bishops who refused to back the watered-down wording. The original draft had said gays had gifts to offer the church and that their partnerships, while morally problematic, provided gay couples with precious support. Francis insisted in the name of transparency that the full document including the paragraphs that failed to pass be published along with the voting tally. The document will serve as the basis for future debate leading up to another meeting of bishops next October that will produce a final report to be sent to Francis.

After a brief hiatus, they appear weekly in the Chronicle Excursions section.Day 42Day 42 finds us traveling north through the Coral Sea. This is yet another at-sea day; however, everyone has by now settled into their At Sea Day Routine. The ship is running smoothly as we all seek out our destinations for the day. I attend another lecture by John Maxton Graham. This is a little different than his previous lectures in that it is not about ships. Mr. Graham tells us the story of four ancient obelisks which were removed from Egypt in the late 19th century using only manual labor. One of the obelisks, named Cleopatras needle, wound up in New York City after being loaded onto a ship. When the ship arrived in New York, the obelisk was removed and traveled on horse-drawn carts through the city to Central Park, where it was erected just west of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Feb. 22, 1881. The world cruise is divided into four segments. Travelers can choose any number of segments to join or choose all four for the full trip. On our trip, 410 passengers were doing the full trip. The remaining 300 came and went throughout the cruise as we periodically picked up and dropped off passengers. Each segment includes both a Welcome Aboard and Farewell party. Later in the day, we attend a segment welcome aboard party hosted by our captain, after which we went to dinner. Vicki, one of our table mates, invites one of the ships officers to join us for dinner. Arturo, a very entertaining Italian, sits next to me. We started exchanging travel information, me on my trips to Italy and he on his trips to the United States. Arturo told me that he used to visit his grandmother in Philadelphia and spent his summers at the New Jersey shore. He knew all about hoagies and pretzels and we exchanged stories about our Boardwalk days. It certainly is a small world in spite of our 107 days to travel through it.Day 43Day 43 finds us at sea approaching Papua, New Guinea. Its another routine sea day as we anticipate our arrival in the morning. Seeing active volcanoes in New Guinea Story and photos by Peter Graulich See JOURNEY/ Page A22 EXCURSIONS

A18SUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: Looking at me now, you would never think I struggled with mental illness. I am a second-year graduate student studying counseling psychology, and I spend my free time as a competitive equestrian, teaching therapeutic riding, practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu and helping with at-risk youth therapeutic groups. The truth is, as a young teenager I battled depression, anxiety, PTSD and self-injury. When these issues first started occurring, I had no idea what depression was, what mental health issues were or how to fix them. At one point, my self-injury became so serious that I required medical attention. I knew then that I needed help. This is when I was diagnosed with depression and generalized anxiety disorder. It was almost a relief to be told I had a disease. I always thought I was being weak and would get down on myself for not just snapping out of it. With therapy and the support of my family, I was able to get better. I want people to know that these mental illnesses are real and treatment is available. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, one in five people ages 18 to 25 experienced a mental illness in the past year, and more than 66 percent did not receive treatment. These reports highlight the need for young adults to recognize the symptoms of depression and anxiety in themselves and others and seek treatment. October is Depression Awareness Month, which is a great time to reach out for help. I encourage everyone to visit HelpYourselfHelpOthers.org and take an online depression screening. The screenings are free, easy and anonymous and provide resources that allow people who may be struggling with depression to take a first step toward healing. Like many physical illnesses, the earlier depression treatment begins the more effective it is likely to be.

RISAK CorrespondentThere really wasnt any question to consider. When George Ron Wilcox graduated from Clearwater High School in 1945, he would enlist in the U.S. Army.Why? The war in Europe was already over, and the war against Japan would end in a few months. Because my brothers had done it, Wilcox said. Everett was in the field artillery at the Battle of the Bulge, David was in the Signal Corps, Norman was in the Air Corps. I just joined the infantry. The Wilcox family, he explained, has a lengthy lineage in the Tampa/Clearwater area. Ron Wilcox, now 86 and living along the Withlacoochee River in northern Citrus County, was the youngest of seven children. His three brothers served in World War II. And although the war ended with the signing of the peace treaty aboard the USS Missouri in September 1945 in Tokyo Harbor, President Harry S. Truman didnt issue an official declaration of the wars termination until Dec. 31, 1946. Which is why Wilcox is considered a veteran of the war. In September, he was part of the latest Honor Flight excursion that flew from St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport to Baltimore for a trip to Washington, D.C. It was a day filled with memories. They visited many of the memorials there, including those from World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. After six weeks of basic training at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, in 1946, Wilcox shipped out to Japan. He would serve most of his 16 months in the Army in Japan as part of the Army of Occupation. I landed in Yokohama, Japan, he said. They first sent me by electric train to Kyoto they were having their first elections, so what we did was ride around in Jeeps and check these election stations to see that everything was going all right. After about a month, they sent me to join the Osaka Military Government team. Luckily, they had USO shows there, tennis courts we could use. I had a lot of good friends there. Being part of an occupying army following nearly four years of a nasty conflict can certainly be hazardous. But for Wilcox, it wasnt. Ill tell you what, to me, it was very pleasant, he said. I had an interpreter, an American-born Japanese who knew English and Japanese. We rode around in a Jeep and inspected munitions factories, shipyards, we were right next to Kobe, a shipyard and a major port. They treated us first rate. Of course, there were some GIs over there who were disreputable bastards, theyd march along on the sidewalk and make the old people walk out in the street. But they were in the minority. The people were as nice to us as could be. Surprisingly, there was no ill will displayed against the Americans. We didnt feel that at all (hard feelings toward us), Wilcox said, displaying a gold-trimmed vase he received as a gift from an armaments factory operator. In Kyoto, we were inspecting election stations. In Osaka, we were inspecting munitions factories and shipyards and that type of thing. Really, I enjoyed my time over there. People were friendly. After his discharge, Wilcox would return to Florida and attend the University of Florida to become a pharmacist. He married his wife, Jackie, in June, 1949; she passed away this past May. Wilcox and his wife would operate a pharmacy in Indian Rocks Beach from 1952 until selling it in 1981. They did a lot of traveling after that, throughout the U.S. (including Hawaii and Alaska) and overseas, visiting England, Greece and other spots. Wilcox had his son along with him on his Honor Flight trip, and it was a day he treasured and honored, wearing the shirt and cap presented to him as a memory of the trip. The wall commemorating World War II was a particularly unforgettable monument, filled with countless gold stars. Each of these stars represents a certain number of men who didnt make it back, he said, showing a photo of himself in front of the wall. Theyre gold stars when a parent was notified that their child was missing or dead, they hung a gold star in the window. That wall represented it.

At the end of the day. we have traveled 13,592 miles since we left Fort Lauderdale.Day 44Day 44 begins with a gasp. I open the drapes, slide the glass door open and step out onto our balcony. Right in front of me is an active volcano. I am watching steam and ash spew out of the volcano. I would guess that the volcano is about 500 yards away. Welcome to Papua, New Guinea. After breakfast we depart the ship, walk a short distance into town and hire a van to give us a tour of the island. The island itself is mostly jungle covered with volcanic ash. The volcano, Tavurvur, erupted in 1994, completely destroying the city. The eruption shot thousands of feet into the air and when it settled down most of the buildings in the city collapsed from its weight. Very little was salvaged. The remaining town is dirty, hot and humid. The locals speak English and are very friendly. As a matter of fact, we are quite surprised how friendly people are, constantly waving at us, smiling all the time. We begin our trip by traveling to a lookout point about 800 feet above the city. From here we have an excellent view of Simpson harbor, our ship and the volcano. We then move on to the Japanese tunnels. The island was captured during World War II by the Japanese in 1942 and was a main base for war activities. The tunnels which were built by POWs were used to hide ships, aircraft and supplies. The tunnel that we visit contained the remains of five military vessels. We then travel to the new town of Kokopo, created after the 1994 eruption. We visit the museum, which is filled with mostly leftover junk from the war. We stop in the new town, which is fairly modern and walk around mingling with the people. Once again, everyone is smiling and friendly. However, up close we notice that everybodys lips and tongue are red. We later find out that the population consumes a great deal of the local fruit known as beetle nuts that contains a narcotic. So, you may always be assured of a friendly welcome when you come to Papua, New Guinea. We travel down to the location of the old town which is covered by 13 feet of ash. A few of the buildings are still standing and one of the Japanese bunkers is still available. While our guide was pointing out various things to see he mentioned that we were standing over the old City Hall which was 13 feet below us under the ash. We head back to the ship late in the afternoon. This is one of the most interesting places that I have ever visited. We are also looking forward to crossing the equator tonight; however, without the ceremony and party. At the end of the day we have traveled 13,819 miles since we left Fort Lauderdale. Next up: Guam.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.A22SUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEEXCURSIONS 000JK0N DRYER VENT CLEANING DONT LET YOUR DRYER START A FIRE!

duct 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. Persian Gulf, Afghanistan, Iraq, Air Force, National Guard and women veterans are especially needed as participants.

Forget it, the San Diego Chargers say. They wont be paying more attention to next Thursday nights matchup with the Bron cos than they will be to Sun days game against Kansas City. Should the Chargers (5-1) get by the Chiefs (2-3), theyll bring the AFC West lead into Denver, not to mention the conferences best record. Its going to be a tough, tough division game, cornerback Brandon Flowers said of Kan sas City. Every team can be dangerous in this league, as you saw last week. He referred to San Diegos 31-28 squeaker over winless Oakland. A record doesnt matter, Flowers added. I played on a Kansas City team and we were 4-12, but we felt like we had ath letes and the skill level to play anybody. That was one of the years we beat Green Bay when they were undefeated. Kansas City comes off a bye, which makes it even more of a threat: coach Andy Reid is 13-2 in the game following a week off. Ive been asked that ques tion a little bit. I dont know the reason why weve had success, said Reid, who got those victo ries with the Eagles. I was in volved with some pretty good football teams and thats how it works. The schedule, all those things go into that. Were not fo cused on that, either. NFL action began Thursday night when New England (5-2) beat the New York Jets 27-25. Tom Brady threw for three touchdowns in a sixth straight loss for New York after an opening win. On Monday night, its Hous ton at Pittsburgh. Off this week are Philadel phia (5-1) and Tampa Bay (1-5). Chargers wont go easy on Chiefs See NFL/Page B3 NFL Noles escape rfntrb b tt t r t tb GAINESVILLE Marcus Murphy scored three touch downs, including two on special teams, and Missouri embar rassed Florida 42-13 Saturday night. The Tigers (5-2, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) scored on a kickoff return, a punt return, a fumble return and an intercep tion return. They managed just seven first downs and 119 yards of offense, including 20 passing, and essentially let the Gators self-destruct in nearly every way imaginable. And they did. Mizzou bounced back from a shutout loss at home to Georgia, remained in the hunt in the muddled Eastern Division and extended their road winning streak to eight. The Gators (3-3, 2-3) lost for the second time in eight days, fueling speculation that Will Muschamp has coached his final game in Gainesville. Fire Mus champ chants broke out in third quarter and could be heard throughout an emptying Florida Field. Florida has dropped 12 of its last 19 games and trails the divi sion-leading Bulldogs by two games with three remaining. Athletic director Jeremy Foley said in September that he wouldnt make any decisions about Muschamps future until after the season finale. But he also has said repeatedly over the years that if something must be done eventually, it must be done immediately. The Gators could be 0-5 in conference play. They eked by Kentucky in triple overtime and edged Tennessee 10-9 two weeks ago. Their latest setback was their worst home loss since falling 37-7 to rival Florida State last season. So questions surrounding Muschamp have lingered and may have reached an apex Sat urday. Missouri led 20-0 at half time despite gaining just 99 yards, and Florida looked like it had no idea how it wanted to use a two-quarterback system featuring Jeff Driskel and Treon Harris. With a bye week on tap and Georgia up after that, few would be surprised to see Foley make the move today Then again, there doesnt seem to be a num ber of strong candidates out there for the choosing.Gators get swamped Associated Pressrrtt tttrrt trff ntbn

B2 or cl TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Blake Sims passed for 268 yards and three touchdowns and scored on a 43-yard run while leading No. 7 Alabama to 35 sec ond-quarter points and a 59-0 pum meling of No. 21 Texas A&M on Saturday. The Crimson Tide (6-1, 3-1 South eastern Conference) shut down the nations No. 4 offense and dominated a game that had produced two straight thrillers. Led by Sims, T.J. Yeldon and Amari Cooper, Alabama outgained the Aggies 602-172. Texas A&M (5-3, 2-3) has lost its past three games, all to teams now ranked in the top 10. Alabama set a school record for most points in a quarter and matched the second-most scored in a half while racing to a 45-0 halftime lead. Yeldon had 114 yards and two touch downs on 13 carries, all in the first half. Cooper gained 140 yards on eight catches with a pair of touchdowns.West Virginia 41, No. 4 Baylor 27 MORGANTOWN, W.Va. Clint Trickett threw three touchdown passes and West Virginia surprised sloppy No. 4 Baylor 41-27. The Mountaineers (5-2, 3-1 Big 12) earned their first win over a top five oppo-nent since the Fiesta Bowl after the 2007 season. West Virginia sacked Baylors Bryce Petty four times and limited the Bears to one touchdown after halftime. Baylor was penalized 18 times for a Big 12-record 215 yards. Seven were for pass interference. Trickett went 23 of 35 for 322 yards, his eighth straight 300-yard game going back to last season. Baylor (6-1, 3-1) couldnt overcome a double-digit deficit as it did in a 61-58 vic-tory against TCU last week.No. 3 Mississippi 34, Tennessee 3OXFORD, Miss. Bo Wallace threw two touchdown passes and No. 3 Missis-sippi had another dominating defensive performance in a 34-3 victory over Tennes-see. Ole Miss (7-0, 4-0 Southeastern Confer-ence) fell behind 3-0 early in the second quarter, but scored the next 34 points. With a relatively easy win, the Rebels continued their best start since 1962. Wallace completed 13 of 28 passes for 199 yards, throwing touchdown passes to Vince Sanders and Evan Engram. Sanders had 108 yards receiving. Ole Miss came into the game giving up just 11.8 points per game, which ranked first in the SEC and second in the country. The Rebels lived up to those numbers, stuffing Tennessees running game and ha-rassing quarterback Justin Worley nearly every time he tried to throw. Worley threw three interceptions and the Volunteers (3-4, 0-3) also lost a fumble.No. 8 Michigan St. 56, Indiana 17BLOOMINGTON, Ind. Connor Cook threw three touchdown passes, Jeremy Langford ran for three more scores and No. 8 Michigan State scored the final 35 points in a 56-17 rout at Indiana. Cook finished with 332 yards, Langford and Nick Hill each topped 100 yards on the ground and Tony Lippett had 123 yards re-ceiving as coach Mark Dantonio moved into a tie for second on the schools all-time victory list with No. 70. The Spartans (6-1, 3-0 Big Ten) have won five straight overall, 13 consecutive games over conference foes and tied the school record with an eighth straight road win in league play. The Hoosiers (3-4, 0-3) also had a scary moment when left tackle Jason Spriggs was carted off the field with 4:54 to play and taken to away in an ambulance. Team officials didnt have an immediate update on the injury.No. 10 Georgia 45, Arkansas 32LITTLE ROCK, Ark. Nick Chubb ran for 202 yards and two touchdowns and No. 10 Georgia dominated on the road for the second straight week, beating Arkansas 45-32 on Saturday. The Bulldogs (6-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference), playing their second straight game without suspended running back Toddy Gurley, led 38-6 at halftime. They were sparked by a defense that followed up its shutout of Missouri by forcing three first-half turnovers. Chubb had a pair of first-half touch-downs, including a 43-yard sprint, and Hunter Mason added 179 yards on 10-of17 passing. Georgia has won five straight following a loss at South Carolina on Sept. 13. Jonathan Williams had 108 yards rush -ing to lead the Razorbacks, (3-4, 0-4). They have lost 16 straight SEC games. rfntb Associated Pressrfntbr nfnrrnnffTide drowns Texas A&M NORMAN, Okla. Michael Hunnicutt missed a 19-yard field goal late as No. 14 Kansas State held off No. 11 Oklahoma 31-30 on Saturday afternoon. Oklahoma, trailing by a point in the fourth quarter, drove to the Kansas State 1-yard line, but couldnt punch the ball in. Hunnicutt then missed the short field goal that would have put the Sooners ahead with 3:53 remaining. Kansas State (5-1, 3-0 Big 12) took possession and ran out the clock. Hunnicutt, touted as an All-America candidate before the season, missed a total of two short field goals and had an extra point blocked. Jake Waters passed for 225 yards and two touchdowns for the Wildcats, who defeated the Sooners 24-19 two years ago on their previous trip to Norman. Oklahomas Sterling Shepard tied a school record with 15 catches for 197 yards and Trevor Knight passed for 318 yards and three touchdowns for Oklahoma (5-2, 2-2).No. 12 TCU 42, No. 15 Oklahoma St. 9FORT WORTH, Texas Trev-one Boykin threw for a career-high 410 yards with three touchdowns, two on long plays to Josh Doctson in the first quarter, and No. 12 TCU emphatically bounced back with a 42-9 victory over No. 15 Oklahoma State. Doctson had seven catches for 225 yards, a yard short of TCUs school record even with the scores of 77 and 84 yards. B.J. Catalon ran for 102 yards and two scores for the Horned Frogs (5-1, 2-1 Big 12). Oklahoma State (5-2, 3-1), which had won five in a row, was out-gained 676 to 258 and held without a touchdown for the first time since a 27-0 loss to Oklahoma in the 2009 regular season finale. TCU quickly erased any notion of a hangover effect from its wild 61-58 loss at Baylor a week earlier, jumping ahead 21-3 on Doctsons early touchdowns.No. 13 Ohio St. 56, Rutgers 17COLUMBUS, Ohio J.T. Barrett completed his first nine passes, ran for 107 yards and two touchdowns and threw for three more scores to lead No. 13 Ohio State past Rut-gers 56-17. The Buckeyes (5-1, 2-0 Big Ten) have averaged 56 points in a fourgame win streak since losing at home to Virginia Tech. Eli Apple, a New Jersey native, added a fumble return for a score. The victory was Ohio States 18th in a row in the Big Ten, draw-ing within two of tying the confer-ence mark set by the 2005-07 Buckeyes. It was the worst loss in 12 years for Rutgers (5-2, 1-2), which had a three-game winning streak end. The Scarlet Knights played before their largest crowd ever (106,795).No. 22 USC 56, Colorado 28LOS ANGELES Cody Kessler set a school single-game record with seven touchdown passes, throwing five in the first half of No. 22 Southern Californias 56-28 vic-tory over Colorado. Nelson Agholor caught three TD passes from Kessler, who broke the mark previously held by Matt Bark-ley. He passed the record on a 24-yard TD pass to Steven Mitchell, who made a diving catch in the third quarter of a blowout victory for the Trojans (5-2, 4-1 Pac-12). Kessler also became the first Pac-12 quarterback to throw seven TD passes in the first three quarters of a game, and the junior tied the conference record for TD passes in a non-overtime game. He finished 17 of 24 for 318 yards. Nelson Spruce and Shay Fields each caught TD passes for Colo-rado (2-5, 0-4).No. 24 Clemson 17, Boston College 13BOSTON C.J. Davidson ran for a 32-yard touchdown with 9:35 to play and No. 24 Clemson stopped a Boston College drive in the final minutes to beat the Eagles 17-13. Cole Stoudt completed 29 of 45 passes for 285 yards, and the Tigers (5-2, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Con-ference) got help from a missed BC extra point. The Eagles (4-3, 1-2) moved to the Clemson 29, con-verted a fourth-and-1 and then Tyler Murphy found an open receiver streaking for the end zone. But Tyler Rouse couldnt hold onto the ball, and Clemson took over on downs and ran out the clock. Murphy ran for 55 yards on 13 carries and also completed 8 of 19 passes for 108 yards.No. 25 Marshall 45, FIU 13MIAMI Rakeem Cato set an NCAA record by throwing a touch-down pass for the 39th straight game, finishing with four scoring tosses and No. 25 Marshall remained unbeaten by topping FIU 45-13. A Miami native, Cato broke a tie with Russell Wilson for the Football Bowl Subdivision mark, connecting with Ryan Yurachek for the re-cord-breaking score with five sec-onds left in the first quarter for Marshall (7-0, 3-0 Conference USA). Devon Johnson caught two touchdown passes, finishing with 117 yards rushing and 79 more re-ceiving for the Thundering Herd. Corey Tindal ran an interception back for a score and Angelo JeanLouis had a scoring catch for Mar-shall, which was playing as a ranked team for the first time since 2002. Alex McGough had a 1-yard touchdown run for FIU (3-4, 2-3), which fell to 0-9 against Top 25 opponents.K-State stuns Sooners in heartbreaker t f Associated Pressfnnfrfnfnfnn fnrffffnrnfnn f USF 38, Tulsa 30TULSA, Okla. Mike White threw three unan-swered touchdown passes to Andre Davis in the second half and South Florida overcame a 20point deficit to defeat Tulsa 38-30. White and Davis connected twice on 15-yard TD catches. For their third strike, White faked a screen to the left, and then hit Davis in stride at the 50 and he ran untouched for an 85-yard touchdown to give the Bulls their first lead, 35-30, with 6:13 remaining. After Tulsa lost 7 yards and punted on its next series, South Florida an-swered with Marvin Kloss kicking a 28-yard field goal to stretch the lead to 38-30 with 2:33 left. Tulsas last drive stalled at its own 33. Marlon Mack added 130 yards rushing and two touchdowns for South Florida (3-4, 2-1 American). Dane Evans threw for 314 yards and a touchdown to lead Tulsa (1-6, 1-2).UCF 20, Tulane 13ORLANDO UCFs defense came up with a pair of late fourth down stops, helping the Knights hold on for a 20-13 American Athletic Conference victory over Tulane. The Knights (4-2, 2-0 AAC) survived four turn-overs and late penalties to preserve the win. Both sides were sloppy on offense, combining for six turnovers. UCF quarterback Justin Holman had a 45-yard touchdown pass in the third quar-ter, but was intercepted twice by Tulane (2-5, 1-2). It was enough for UCF coach George OLeary to pull him in favor of Nick Patti in the second quarter. The change lasted three series, before Holman was reinserted to begin the second half. In his second straight start at quarterback, Tu-lanes Nick Montana finished 18 for 42 for 147 yards and two interceptions.FAU 45, W. Kentucky 38BOCA RATON Jaquez Johnson connected with Lucky Whitehead on a 61-yard pass play with 1:23 left and Florida Atlantic rallied for a 45-38 victory over Western Kentucky. The Owls (3-4, 2-1 Conference USA) trailed 38-28 entering the fourth quarter but Greg Jo-seph kicked a field goal after missing two previ-ous tries and Greg Howell scored his first touchdown of the season on 4-yard run with 2:18 left to tie the game. Johnson, who also ran for a score, was 23-of34 passing for 325 yards and three touchdowns, two to Whitehead, the conferences all-purpose yardage and receptions leader coming in. White-head had 125 yards receiving. Brandon Doughty was 28 of 44 for 335 yards with three scores and an interception for the Hill-toppers (2-4, 0-3).

LOTTERY r B3 San Francisco (4-2) at Denver (4-1) The 49ers and Broncos meet for the first time since a London game nearly four years ago, when neither team was the powerhouse it has become. Now it is a potential Super Bowl preview. Peyton Manning needs three TD passes to break Brett Favres mark (508). Hes averaging three a game this season. Its not something we talk about as an offense, said tight end Julius Thomas, who already has nine TD catches. Peyton doesnt talk about it. We just keep playing football. The Niners started 1-2, but have begun to play some impressive football, too. They understand the chore ahead in trying to stop Manning. Whenever he takes the field, hes just great all the time and that speaks volumes for the player that he is and continues to be, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said. Just keeps doing it and doing it and doing it. Great. Great with a capital G at the high est level. Carolina (3-2-1) at Green Bay (4-2) Coming off the first tie in team history, the Panthers are showing a better passing offense than anticipated. Cam Newton looks healthy and strong and has found a comfort zone with tight end Greg Olson and rookie wideout Kelvin Benjamin, who leads rookies with 416 yards receiving. The defense hasnt been as stout as expected, though, and that never bodes well when facing Aaron Rodgers at Lam beau Field. Rodgers 111.2 passer rating in October tops quarterbacks with at least 300 attempts since 2008, when Rodgers became a starter. Cincinnati (3-1-1) at Indianapolis (4-2) The Bengals are reeling and the Colts are rolling. Cincinnati comes off a blowout loss at New England and then a tie yes, one of those against Carolina. The Bengals stuck by kicker Mike Nugent, who has been streaky this year and missed a 36-yarder at the end of overtime last week. Andrew Luck leads the league with 1,987 yards passing and 17 touchdowns. T.Y. Hilton comes off a career game with 223 yards on nine catches. New York Giants (3-3) at Dallas (5-1) Eli Manning won his first four starts at AT&T Stadium, including the first regu lar-season game in the building in 2009, before losing in 2013. But the Giants come in without their two top offensive op tions sidelined with knee injuries: WR Vic tor Cruz, out for the season, and RB Rashad Jennings. New York must find a way to shut down DeMarco Murray, who could break Jim Browns mark of six 100-yard rushing games to start a season. Murray leads the NFL with 785 yards rushing and six touch downs. Theres no emergence, hes been a heck of a football player for all of the years that Ive been around watching him, Gi ants coach Tom Coughlin said. Arizona (4-1) at Oakland (0-5) Carson Palmer came to the Cardinals from the Raiders and has performed well for Arizona. He has not been picked off all season; actually, no Arizona QB has been. The Cardinals also have a find at place kicker: rookie Chandler Catanzaro has made all 14 field goals. At least the Raiders, who have lost 11 straight and seek to avoid starting 0-6 for the first time since losing their first 13 in 1962, might have found a quarterback. Derek Carr became the sixth rookie since 2000 with four TD passes in a game last week against San Diego. Seattle (3-2) at St. Louis (1-4) The Seahawks are feeling mighty or nery following a home loss to the Cow boys and just might take it out on the Rams. They do that quite a bit, having won 16 of 18 in the series, and with the Rams showing no pass rush (one sack), Russell Wilson could have a big bounceback game. Injury-ravaged St. Louis is 0-3 at home and inexperienced quarterback Austin Davis has a real challenge against Seat tles Legion of Boom secondary. Davis has thrown four interceptions and saw three returned for TDs. Atlanta (2-4) at Baltimore (4-2) The Falcons are a mess on defense, ranked 31st, and Baltimores offense has come alive. Atlantas vaunted wideouts, Julio Jones and Roddy White, are strug gling, while the Ravens Steve Smith Sr. and Torrey Smith have been sensational of late. For the Falcons to break their threegame slide, they probably need Jones and White to have an impact against an opponent that has yielded only nine TDs all season. Miami (2-3) at Chicago (3-3) With starting RB Knowshon Moreno out for the season, Miami needs Lamar Miller to step up as a regular. Hes already aver aging 5.2 yards a carry, but now has the weight of the running game on his shoul ders. Chicago has looked much better away from Soldier Field; it was upended by the Bills and Packers in its only two home games. If Jay Cutler is careful with the ball, the Bears have a shot; they are 3-0 in games he was not picked off, and he has thrown two interceptions in each of their three losses. Matt Forte tops the NFL with 46 recep tions and is third in total yards from scrim mage (399 rushing, 376 receiving). New Orleans (2-3) at Detroit (4-2) Drew Brees is 4-0 against Detroit, in cluding a home playoff victory. He has a 133.8 passer rating in those games, with 14 TDs and one pick. Hell be challenged big time by the Lions, who rank first overall in defense and in pass defense and have 20 sacks. The Saints also have only two take aways this season, fewest in the NFL, while Detroit has nine, including seven interceptions. Lions RB Reggie Bush plays his first game against the team he helped win a Super Bowl. Houston (3-3) at Pittsburgh (3-3), Mon day night Houston entered Week 7 tied with the Patriots for the NFL lead with 14 take aways and the Steelers had just six. But Pittsburgh is 8-0 at Heinz Field in Monday night games. Steelers WR Antonio Brown has caught at least five passes for 50 yards in 22 straight games, an NFL record, and top the league with eight receptions of 25 yards or more. Pittsburgh needs the long ball because it is 31st in red zone touch down percentage. Cleveland (3-2) at Jacksonville (0-6) Browns QB Brian Hoyer looks like a contender for Comeback Player of the Year. Showing no signs of the knee prob lems that cut short his 2013 season, hes also had a solid running game to rely on. After scoring four TDs rushing in 2013, the Browns lead the NFL with eight. Its a three-pronged rushing attack of veteran Ben Tate and rookies Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell. Jacksonville is the fourth team in NFL history to lose its first six games in con secutive seasons. Tennessee (2-4) at Washington (1-5) Opponents control the ball well against Tennessee, which has yielded 151 first downs, the most in the league. If the Ti tans can get their offense on track they hope to have starting QB Jake Locker back from a thumb injury they might be able to change time-of-possession woes. The Redskins skid is at four. Kirk Cous ins eight INTs lead the league and Wash ington is minus-9 in turnover differential, as bad as anyone. Minnesota (2-4) at Buffalo (3-3) Minnesotas passing game has shut down and ranks 30th, without a TD pass for 19 quarters. Top pick Teddy Bridgewa ter strives to change that in his first road start. Buffalos run game has stagnated, quite a surprise with Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller on hand. But the switch to QB Kyle Orton has boosted the air attack, and Orton has thrown for 607 yards in two starts. The Vikings have trouble in pass pro tection and Buffalo already has 19 sacks.

Ben Martin takes Las Vegas lead LAS VEGAS Ben Martin birdied five straight on the back nine and finished with a 9-under 62 to take a twostroke lead in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Winless in 55 career starts on the PGA Tour, the 27-yearold former Clemson player matched his best score on the tour set last year in the Zurich Classic to get to 17under 196 at TPC Summerlin. Martin had four birdies and bogey on the front nine, bird ied No. 10 and took the lead with his birdie run on Nos. 13-17. Luiten, Stenson reach semis WASHINGTON The Capi tals scored on all three shots in the shootout, and Justin Peters made 20 saves in his start this season to lift Washington over the Florida Panthers 2-1 on Sat urday night. Jason Chimera scored his first goal of the young season for the Capitals (3-0-2), who im proved to 10-0-1 in their last 11 meetings against their former division rival. Brad Boyes power play goal for Florida (1-3-1) tied the game early in the third period. Each team scored on its first shootout attempt, and Nicklas Backstrom then put the Capi tals ahead 2-1. After Peters stopped Jussi Jokinen, Alex Ovechkin scored the clincher for Washington. In a matchup of backups, Pe ters outdueled Al Montoya. The Panthers have scored five goals in five games. Washington out shot Florida 28-21 overall. Bruins 4, Sabres 0 BUFFALO, N.Y. Niklas Sved berg made 32 saves in his first NHL shutout, and the Boston Bruins beat the Buffalo Sabres 4-0. It was just the third career start for Svedberg, who replaced Tuukka Rask in the third period of Bostons loss Thursday at Montreal. Dougie Hamilton, Zdeno Chara, Torey Krug and Carl Soderberg scored for the Bruins (3-4). All four goals came at even strength, and three were scored against Buffalos top line. The Sabres (1-5) were shut out in consecutive games for the first time since October 2003. Buffalo went 0 for 7 on the power play, fall ing to 0 for 18 on the season. Jhonas Enroth made 31 saves. Penguins 3, Islanders 1 PITTSBURGH Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist scored pow er-play goals 55 seconds apart in the second period, and the Pitts burgh Penguins gave the New York Islanders their first loss of the sea son, 3-1. The Islanders (4-1) had been the NHLs last unbeaten team. Hornqvist, who assisted on Malkins goal, added an empty-net tally with 1:20 left to seal the Penguins win. Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby had two assists, in cluding the 500th of his career. Marc-Andre Fleury made 30 saves in the win. Thomas Hickey staked the Is landers to a 1-0 lead in the first pe riod, but New York failed to post its first 5-0 start. Jaroslav Halak stopped 35 shots. Canadiens 3, Avalanche 2 MONTREAL P.K.

The Avalanche turned to Pickard after Semyon Varlamov aggravated a groin injury and backup Reto Berra was hurt in Thursday night in a 5-3 loss to Ottawa. Senators 3, Blue Jackets 2 OTTAWA Mike Hoffman made up for missing a penalty shot by scoring the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period to give the Ottawa Senators a 3-2 victory over the Columbus Jackets. David Legwand and Erik Karls son also scored and Robin Lehner stopped 38 shots to help Ottawa get its fourth straight win after los ing its opener. Nick Foligno and David Savard scored for the Blue Jackets. Curtis McElhinney allowed two goals on 16 shots before being replaced by Sergei Bobrovsky, who gave up one goal on 18 shots. With the score tied 2-2, Hoffman who had been a healthy scratch the past two games used his speed to get to the net and beat Bobrovsky on the backhand at 9:38 of the third. Red Wings 1, Maple Leafs 0 DETROIT Henrik Zetterberg scored with 9.9 seconds left in over time to give the Detroit Red Wings a 1-0 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs and a sweep of the teams home-and-home series. Zetterburg streaked down the right side and sent Niklas Kro nwalls centering pass over Jona than Berniers shoulder. Detroits Jonas Gustavson made 30 saves for his sixth career shut out while Bernier stopped 31 in his third loss of the season. Tomas Tatar almost ended the game 80 seconds into overtime but his shot past a distracted Bernier nicked the left post and zipped away. The Red Wings won 4-1 a night earlier in Toronto but the Original Six rivals treated a boisterous crowd there were plenty of blueand-white jerseys in the stands to a much more dramatic show in the rematch.

B6 or cl 000JLTG 000JLTG TAMPA Danny Lan sanahs journey back to the NFL is a tale of hard work and perseverance that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker shares with a smile. The Bucs (1-5) are off to another slow start; how ever, Lansanah has gone from not playing in the league for nearly five years to starting. His un likely story is a reminder of the things that can be accomplished when peo ple refuse to give up. Tampa Bay used part of this weeks bye to brush up on fundamentals and make adjustments in the wake of a 48-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Play ers departed for a long weekend break after re ceiving a simple message from Coach Lovie Smith: The season is still young, and there is plenty of time for the struggling team that ranks 29th in offense and 32nd in defense to not only get on track, but climb into playoff contention. Lansanah, meanwhile, is a little-known player whos worked his way into the lineup. He leads the team with two inter ceptions, returning both for touchdowns to join Houstons J.J. Watt as the only NFL players whove scored a pair of defensive TDs this season. But just the fact hes even in the league is rea son to revel. Lansanah originally en tered as an undrafted free agent with Green Bay in 2008. He appeared in five games with the Packers as a rookie, but by his own admission took playing in the league for granted and wound up being cut in training camp the following year. He later spent time on the practice squad with the Dolphins and Lions, and played three seasons in the United Football League with the Hartford Colonels and Las Vegas Locomotives. He got his next big break in 2013 while working as a coun selor and mentor in a rehabilitation program for troubled teens in his hometown of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The New York Jets, who saw him in a UFL game, invited him for a tryout. He signed with them, spending 10 weeks on the practice squad but never appearing in a regu lar-season game before being released and signed by Tampa Bay last December. He made his debut for the Bucs in the 2013 season finale at New Orleans, notched his first NFL tackle since 2008 in this years opener, and his role has continued to ex pand. Now, hes determined to make the best of a second chance. Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier stressed that Lansanah has earned it. Hes a guy who hasnt given up. Hes bounced around a little bit and hes kind of found a home. Early on, he wasnt one of those guys we were counting on, Frazier said. We didnt have him in the starting lineup, and hes kind of worked his way there by making plays, both in practice and in games to the point where its going to be hard for us to take him off the field. 000JK0R 9301 W.

Section CSUNDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW Ican get excited about things pretty easily. Good things. Funny things. Interesting things. But there are some things I cant get excited about. For one, I have a hard time caring about who becomes the next governor of Florida. Gov. Rick Scott has been mediocre about some things and just plain bad about others. He appears to read the partisan platform and just stand rigid on all issues. Theres nothing he individually brings to the table. I dont feel the leadership. Sure, there has been job growth. But jobs have been growing all over the country as we climb out of the miserable recession. Neither political party can take credit for the recent job growth unless they first take responsibility for the job loss that came as part of that same recession. And through that same filter, I cant get excited about Charlie Crist once again becoming our governor. Crist is a friendly and engaging person, but he cares more about getting elected to something important than he seems to care about the issues facing the state. Im not sure either candidate wants to lead in a direction Im interested in going. I have also had a hard time getting worked up over the medical marijuana amendment. Whats the big deal? Doctors should be able to dispense marijuana to patients if they believe it will help ease pain or have positive impact on a patient outcome. We trust doctors to prescribe much more dangerous and addictive drugs than marijuana to patients every day of the week. So why get worked up over marijuana? Well, for the most part, it seems to me that many of the recreational pot users of Florida think that by making marijuana legal for medical Hard to get motivated about gubernatorial race See WINDOW/ Page C3 Dan HilliardGUEST COLUMN Editors note: Withlacoochee Area Residents President Dan Hilliard recently submitted the following comments to the Southwest Florida Water Management District regarding its 2015 Minimum Flows and Levels (MFL) priority list update process. His comments are being published here with his permission.Original legislation related to MFL rule development required that rules be in place before water-use permit issuance. Because of the problematic nature of such regulation, the state allowed permitting to continue if a priority list for implementation was published. Forty-two years after promulgation of the original statute, groundwater supply/demand projections for parts of Central Florida indicate a shortfall of supply by the year 2035, and MFL rule development remains incomplete. Comments rendered in this document are framed within this context as well as the following observations: 1) Projected schedules for the 2015 priority list extend to the year 2023; thus, before some water bodies are protected by rule development, 51 years will have passed since the initial legislative mandate was passed. 2) Projected schedule for the Withlacoochee River system is extended from 2016 to 2020. The technical review for this water body began on or before 2010. 3) Throughout Florida, waters of the state are directly stressed by consumptive use, or indirectly by pollution resulting from such use. 4) Florida taxpayers are burdened with the prospect of great expense associated with the restoration of lakes and riverine systems. 5) State water district Areas of Responsibility (AOR) appear to be internally conflicted.

The coming of the Holocaust and World War II pushed increasing numbers of refugeesto Palestine. This triggered a civil war that pitted the mostly Arab population against the growing number of Jews escaping Central Europe. Begin and Sadat were greatly differing personalities who rose to power through very different circumstances. Sadat was a soldier who supported Gamal Abdel Gamal Abdel Nassers 1952 military coup. After Nassers assassination in 1970, Sadat took over leadership of the Egyptian government. He was not democratically elected and presided as an autocrat over a country plagued by poverty. Thirteen Days in SeptemberLawrence Wright New York, Knopf, 2014 343 pages, $27.95.REVIEW: PEACE FAILS TRIUMPHANTLY IN THIRTEEN DAYS TAL SHABTAI/ Wikimedia CommonsPrime Minister Menachem Begin, U.S. President Jimmy Carter and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat after the signature of the Israel-Egypt peace treaty in Washington.Begin was Polish Jew whose life was strongly influenced by his religious beliefs. Most of his family members were victims of the Holocaust and he barely escaped death. Eventually, he made it to Palestine and became a terrorist seeking an independent Jewish state. In 1946, Begin was part of a group which dynamited the King David Hotel in Jerusalem an event that contributed to driving the British out. He was, the author states, a racist who hated the Arabs. Then, quite unexpectedly, he came to power when the three major parties reached a stalemate. He viewed the Israeli state as the fulfillment of Gods promise to save the Jewish people and proudly proclaimed that he would make no concessions to the Arab Palestinians. Sadat hoped to protect the Arabs who still lived in the Palestinian area and were being displaced by new apartment buildings for the continuing influx of Jews from abroad. Furthermore, more land was taken Thirteen Days in September is a highly readable chronicling of two weeks in September of 1978 when then-President Jimmy Carter convinced Menachem Begin, the prime minster of Israel, and Anwar Sadat, the president of Egypt, to come to the presidential retreat of Camp David to negotiate a Middle East peace settlement. Carter felt that if the leaders could meet in private away from the critics they could more easily agree to a settlement that would benefit both sides. See REVIEW/ Page C3 Michael FrancisBOOK REVIEW

Page C2SUNDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2014 Roads to nowhereI am writing about the story by Mike Wright on Sunday, Sept. 28 (Cents for gas, Page A1). This story was about the countys referendum to pay for residential road resurfacing. It included interviews with acting County Administrator Jeff Rogers. Specifically the 1-cent sales tax would provide funding for resurfacing and maintenance of all county-maintained paved residential roadways. I am amazed by the inadequacy for forward thinking by Citrus County. In most counties/ cities, they have long-range plans for development, roads, etc. This county doesnt seem to have anything as far as where it is are going, how it is going to spend tax money, etc. In the question-and-answer section on Page 2, the question is asked, If the sales tax passes, how will the county prioritize resurfacing roads? Answer: That hasnt been finalized yet, but Rogers believes it should be worst to first, meaning roads in the 8 percent considered critical receive first consideration even if no one lives on those roads, which in this case in several Citrus Springs areas. All of you who live in Citrus Springs like I do know there are dozens if not hundreds of miles of roads here that have no houses on them. Most roads on the northwest side of Elkcam and North Citrus Springs Boulevard are totally uninhabited and never used. Who would drive down a bumpy, unpaved road when there is a wellpaved or less bumpy road they can use? North Citrus Springs is an access road to many homes both north and south of it, but it is in deplorable condition until you cross Elkcam. If this is the way things are going to go, with wasting our tax money on uninhabited neighborhoods, then we are just going to get more of what weve been getting. You cant expect different results if you keep doing the same thing. The citizens of Citrus County will be asking again, Where did our tax money go? and not get satisfactory answers. It doesnt take a genius to understand that Citrus County has no direction. I realize Rogers is the acting county administrator; I just hope and pray that when the new board is seated, we get some forwardthinking people to lead this county and know where and why they are spending our tax dollars.Linda Kearce Citrus Springs American leftists liberals, progressives, call them what you will have worked for 60 years to remake this country in the likeness of the failing European welfare states. Blinded by their desire for the utopian society that should be, ignorant of history and basic economic behavior, these leftists have succeeded in turning our country from the path of continued prosperity and individual freedoms to the paths of proven economic and social collapse. So dense is their ignorance, they cannot even recognize the results of their own failed policies, calling instead for more of the same. Our progressive president is an inexperienced, incompetent young man more adept at campaigning and fundraising than governing. He has used a corrupt IRS to silence those dissenting from his policies, used the Environmental Protection Agency to override Congress to benefit his green anti-growth agenda and used the Justice Department to bury a number of embarrassing scandals. Using unconstitutional (as the courts have ruled) executive orders, he has changed immigration policies and the laws of his health care program. He is jeopardizing our Constitution and the rule of law. The generation of Americans that fought World War II to preserve our liberties and capitalist economic system passed on the protection of the country to my generation. We have failed them. Most of us knew that individuals work harder to benefit themselves or their families than they do when forced to share rewards with a larger group. We knew they produce more, discover more and add more to the general societal wealth. Sharing the results of ones labor with others, we knew, was actually a disincentive to hard work. But we let left-leaning schools and media convince our children that people working to benefit themselves were greedy and that working to benefit the group, the collective, was the right and intelligent way. Most in my generation believe in the greatness and overall goodness of America. We honor our flag and our national anthem, and we think death in the service of our nation is tragic but honorable. We know our Constitution is the best such document in history, that it protects our freedoms from enemies abroad and oppressive government at home and that it guarantees opportunity to all citizens. When the left gained control of the universities and the media in the late 1960s, they told our kids that America was an oppressor of other nations, that our wars were all about economics and not principles. They said we oppressed blacks and Native Americans and that we were no better than other nations. They taught our kids that all cultures were of equal value, that none provided more freedoms and benefits than others for their peoples, that all nations were essentially equally good and bad. They told our university students that patriotism and nationalism were evils, reserved for ignorant fools. When they lied to our young people, my generation did not do enough to counter them. When the left advised young black Americans, struggling for equal rights and equal economic opportunity, to create a separate black identity, a culture and language apart from the American mainstream, most of us knew that would not work. To succeed in Rome, one does as the Romans do. The obvious failures of the lefts solutions were easy to predict, but we lacked the courage to speak out lest they label us racist. My generation had little personal experience with the welfare state before President Lyndon Johnsons Great Society and War on Poverty. Most of us wanted to help our fellow Americans suffering from financial mishaps or serious health problems. We agreed with the left that some sort of social net was needed. We should have paid attention to those who reminded us at the time that, as governments grow larger, they always become more costly, corrupt, less efficient and repressive. My generation was too busy, too lazy, self-centered and unconcerned about where the left was taking America. It is too late now for us to change the countrys direction. The best we can do is speak out in support of candidates who seek to reduce the size of government, reduce regulations and increase individual freedoms. But we can quit complaining and we can apologize for a government that is, after all, a product of our own making.William Dixon is a graduate of Columbia University, New York Medical College and the USF College of Business Administration.

That was the unanimous sentiment of the Board of County Commissioners on Tuesday when it passed into local law an ordinance that regulates fertilizers much in the same way a dog regulates its emotions: Barely, and only at the behest of its master. By a riskless 5-0 vote, commissioners adopted the Citrus County Ordinance for Florida-Friendly Use of Fertilizer on Urban Landscapes, a law long of tongue but short of tooth. Its worth noting, lest you be unduly encouraged by the commissions uncharacteristic unanimity, that the ordinance is based on draft legislation mandated and provided by the state. In approving the ordinance, commissioners enthusiastically adopted the bare-minimum standard required by the Florida Legislature. It was the least they could do. Under the measure, application of fertilizers is restricted within the first month of seeding or sodding and prohibited when the ground is saturated and the fertilizer contains phosphorus or nitrogen. It requires all commercial applicators of fertilizers to undergo a sixhour training course and outlines penalties for violation the county admits will be all but impossible to enforce. The ordinance also creates 10-foot fertilizer-free zones around most waterways, but lets be realistic: Kings Bay is not choking on Lyngbya because roving bands of neerdo-wells are standing at the shoreline maniacally emptying canisters of Miracle-Gro. What the law doesnt bother doing is limiting the content of fertilizers sold in the county or creating fertilizerfree months on the calendar, steps which have been taken to absolutely no detriment by counties in the state more concerned than ours. Commenting on the measure, a majority of the commission agreed to revisit the matter at some point in the undefined future and adjust it as necessary after somehow measuring its progress and impact. Well save them the time: Youll see no improvement, and you dont need to wait for the state. Do more now. Fast-release fertilizers are a known and significant contributor to the contamination of the waters we play in and drink, and thats not news. Nineteen years into Save Our Waters Week, were finally seeing the first toddle toward sensibly regulating them. Will it be another 19 before we take our next baby step? In a moment of stinky juxtaposition, the commission Tuesday also voted to seek grants from the Southwest Florida Water Management District to fund, among other things, continued removal of Lyngbya from Kings Bay by One Rake at a Time volunteers. There you have it: Collectively, we would rather spend local and state tax dollars pulling crud out of our waterways than preventing it from getting there in the first place. That is not to besmirch the good and necessary work of the One Rake at a Time effort, but we think the county and its waters would be better served by measures that lead us swiftly closer to the day when Art Jones can hang up his rake.

It does my heart good to see the success in these young peoples lives and the scholarships theyre getting and continuing on with their lifes dreams. I especially want to give a shoutout. I think its great. Im reading about Kristen Bullock today (Oct. 8). Way to go, KFC, but more especially to Kristen Bullock. Thats wonderful that you have a goal and I wish you much success on it. And believe me, if you want to put up a Popeyes in Inverness, I will be your best customer. Congratulations to everyone, every week, on a good job. It shows that young students have dreams and goals just like we had at one time and I wish them every success.Help for the homelessMy name is John Young. Ive been a homeless advocate in Citrus County and throughout the state of Florida for the past 25 to 30 years.

If whoever made this comment would contact me at 352-628-4357, perhaps we may be able to plug them in for what might be available here locally, OK? So there is help for people who are homeless and who have animals.

COMMENTARYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014 C3 Im a little deflated, but the roast was fantastic Im not disillusioned about my appearance. Im not a piece of beefcake cute, maybe, but Im not handsome and Im not macho. If I stretch as high as I can, Ill get up to 5 feet, 6 inches. I spent my early years being unusually small. During my time as an Army reservist, Cheryl sewed buttons on the inside of my uniform pants and put buttonholes in the shirts. The problem was that even when I pulled my belt tight, I had no hips or buttocks to stop the trousers from slipping down. The buttons and the button holes allowed me to button in and keep it all together. During the past several years, things have changed. Im still short, but instead of being short and thin, Ive become short and round. I do the Pillsbury Doughboy look very well. Except for the one who continues to love me all of me the one who has been with me through thick and thin, I couldnt imagine my ever making a womans heart go pitterpatter. That is, until an incident at church a few years ago. Ive cooked seriously since I was 10 years old, and I have a system for most things, a system that works. Early one Sunday morning, prior to going to church, I put a pork roast in the oven. After proper seasoning, I cooked it for a couple of hours at medium heat and then, just before leaving, I turned the oven down to a lower temperature. I expected to be home around 12:30. I would take out the roast, which would by then be falling off of the bone. Id put the drippings into a large saucepan and cook rice in the scrumptious au jus. Id warm up a pot of collard greens cooked the previous day. For color, Id slice up some fresh tomatoes. Then, Cheryl and I, along with some of our children and grandchildren, would enjoy! I know better than to make precise plans depending on church services being finished on my schedule. Sure enough, that morning it became apparent that timing would become an issue. I checked my watch and squirmed. Finally, to my shame, I slipped out. As I walked across the parking lot, a lady I didnt know approached me. She said that she had come to pick up a friend and asked if I knew when church would be over. In my haste, I politely responded that I wasnt sure and explained Id left early to take a roast out of the oven. She looked at me from top to bottom and blurted out, Are you married? More than a little embarrassed, thinking shed found me irresistible, I quickly replied that I was indeed married and gave details including number of years as well as number of children and grandchildren. What happened next brought me back to the real world and made her true interest painfully clear. As I began to walk away, she sighed wistfully, What kind of roast is it?Fred Brannen, an Inverness resident, has been a Chronicle columnist since 1988 and is the author of the recently published novel, At the Bottom of Biscayne Bay. Fred may be contacted at fbrannenjr @gmail.com or via brannenbooksllc.com. Fred BrannenA SLICE OF LIFE purposes, it brings it one step closer to being legal for everyone. And why put it in the state constitution? When you put something in the constitution, its really hard to tinker with it. In my view, the constitution should be amended for issues like civil rights, womens voting rights and pigs. Thats right Floridians supported a constitutional amendment in 2002 to protect pregnant pigs. In the constitution! I personally think its dumb for marijuana to be illegal and for us to spend so many millions of tax dollars to keep it that way. Its a fight weve been paying for over the past half century, and were not any closer to winning it than we were during the Nixon administration. I also have a hard time with our local debate about dogs, cats and air conditioning at the county pound. This is Florida. It gets so hot in August that even the bugs are hiding. We, the more intelligent species, have done such a poor job taking care of our pets that they run all over the place and create new unwanted pets. Then we gather them all up, send them to the pound and terminate those who are not adopted. What a great plan. And now we dont want to pay a few extra bucks so they can have air conditioning? Is this really the issue we need to keep arguing about? It always amazes me what triggers public interest. When former Gov. Crist and Gov. Scott debated earlier this week, it was Charlies fan that got all the attention. Weve got so many important issues in the great state of Florida and were all focused on the fan. I admit, there is a lot of hot air that needs to be moved around. But it would be nice if we could deal with improving our schools, cleaning up the environment and solving our health care woes.Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle. Email him at gmulligan@ chronicleonline.com. of any legal basis for providing priority to water supply at the expense of the remaining three AORs. Lacking balance in administrative priorities, the resource has been substantially degraded in context of both remaining supply and quality. 6) Because neither WUP application review nor MFL rule technical analysis effectively incorporates regulation of nonpoint source pollution, current methodology fails to prevent the cause(s) of degradation and impairment of Floridas waters to a very broad degree. 7) More than 80 percent of Floridas waters are listed as impaired (303d). 8) MFL rules are reviewed on a periodic basis. It is imperative that MFL rule development be expedited to the full extent of the capabilities of the Southwest Florida Water Management District. This is said due to the uncertainty attendant to long-range planning for water supply, water quality and protection of natural systems as rules are slowly promulgated. See the Withlacoochee Regional Water Supply Authority Water Plan: www.wrwsa.org/wrwsa_ mas_plan.htm. In the span of time since the legislation was passed requiring MFL rules, most of the states waters have been listed as impaired. Future supply source is problematic and, with certainty, more expensive. The proposed 2015 priority list extends this process to a time span exceeding 50 years since inception. This is a travesty and an insult to the citizens of Florida. It is recommended that the SWFWMD adopt MFL rules for all water bodies on the priority list en masse, and in so doing set a zero percent standard in reduction of levels or flows. Such action will assist in stabilizing circumstances previously described and minimize repetitive agency review. The action will promote greater efficiency of use and innovation by end users. The individual rules may be modified during subsequent review as appropriate and amendmentsbalanced by fidelity to all district AORs. The priority, if any, should be directed at those resources judged to be the most likely economical long-term (20plus years) source of water supply based on reasonable demand forecasts. There is nothing to preclude the setting of a short review term for these waters. We appreciate the opportunity to provide input to the process.Dan Hilliard a director with Withlacoochee Area Residents Inc., which was organized in 1984 in response to quality of life threats posed by activities that have a high potential to degrade groundwater and surface water quality. by Israel in the 1967 war, which gave the Israeli state more land and put the holy places of Judaism and Islam in Jerusalem and Bethlehem into the hands of the Tel Aviv governments soldiers. Begin scorned the very idea of the conference but, fearing an end to the large flow from America of money and military equipment, he gave into domestic and international pressure to participate in the Camp David talks. On the other hand, Sadat hoped that Washington might increase its assistance to Cairo if he showed a genuine desire for a peace settlement. Most of his advisers wanted to Sadat to make no concessions, but he ignored their advice. In the Israeli delegation, Begins advisers were much more ready to make concessions than the prime minister was. And so, in the glare of global television, the document was signed by both sides. Carters efforts to have an agreement seemed fulfilled, and he smiled happily as the signing ceremony took place. Certainly Carter deserved his shining moment, because he was the one who had forced their hands by implying threats if they didnt make progress. At the public signing, Begin appeared sullen and detached. Upon returning to Israel, he completely rejected the Camp David agreement (although the Israeli Knesset did approve some parts of the agreement). Sadat and Begin won Nobel Peace Prizes in 1978 for their efforts. In 2002, Carter also won the prize for his efforts in office and afterward. Perhaps if Begin had been more flexible, the efforts would have been fruitful. Carters chances for re-election floundered in part because he was unable to free the U.S. Embassys personnel in Iran who were imprisoned by students protesting Americas support for the Shah. By negotiated arrangement, they were released when Ronald Reagan was sworn into the presidency. Sadat returned to Cairo, where triumphal crowds acclaimed him, but his days in power were numbered. Sadat was assassinated in 1981 at a parade by an Egyptian soldier the same fate Nasser met 11 years earlier. Perhaps if Begin had been more flexible, other agreements could have been reached over time that would have prevented the Islamic extremism we face today. However, Begin and many others who immigrated to Israel had seen the face of evil in the Holocaust and it was asking too much of them to trust the Arabs. Initially, I was reluctant to read this book. I had earlier read and admired The Looming Tower, the authors volume on the rise of Islamic extremism. But how interesting can a rehash of a 1978 conference that was a failure be? But my opinion changed as I went along. There are many vivid moments at Camp David. This book is about much more than those 13 days as the author manages to skillfully write an account that describes and explains an important period in Middle East history.Michael Francis is a Sugarmill Woods resident who taught international relations at the University of Notre Dame for 39 years.

HILLIARDContinued from Page C1 REVIEWContinued from Page C1 WINDOWContinued from Page C1 Letters to THE EDITOR Were sinking by the bowNancy Nehrings provocative response to my letter certainly requires some answers from me. First of all, Nancy, I never said the sky was falling and I never said people will starve. As a child of the Great Depression, I witnessed firsthand businesses failing, taxes rising and massive unemployment. So we know that it can happen. We also know that throwing money at the problem throughout the 1930s didnt work. FranklinRoosevelts massive government spending programs and high taxes on the rich helped very little. World War II pulled us out of the Depression. As for your accusation that I am stuck in the s, Im certainly happy to plead guilty to being stuck in the s and being influenced by the teachings of Econ 101. Unfortunately, we have abandoned these good, commonsense rules and we are now over $17.5 trillion (with a t) in debt. The government is subsidizing close to half the population with food stamps and other benefits. The stock market is being propped up by monthly infusions of cash by the Fed. The Treasury continues to print money and flood the system in order to pay off its commitments. The current administration is cooking the books on unemployment and cost of living measures and like the Titanic, the U.S. of A. is sinking by the bow. Since Lyndon Johnson declared his War on Poverty some 50 years ago, we have spent some $13 trillion (with a t) on that program, which is three times as much as we spent on all the wars in this country since the Revolution, and we still have the same rate of poverty that we had in the 1960s. Redistribution of wealth does not work. It never has and it never will. Did we not learn anything from the 2008 economic collapse? Lets look at Ms. Nehrings argument in favor of raising the minimum wage. She uses Walmart as an example. She argues that Walmart employees can all be given an extra $10,000 a year and no one would suffer. What she is suggesting is exactly what the steel industry did back in the 20th century, i.e. plow all extra monies into increasing labor rates and benefits, as opposed to using at least some of the profits for reinvestment in new facilities, equipment, technology, etc. Please go see the communities of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and Sparrows Point, Maryland, and take a good look at two dying communities that demonstrate what happens when we do something as she is suggesting. It took the better part of 100 years, but it was a major factor in killing our segment of the worlds steel market. Weve made similar mistakes in the automotive and rubber industries. Please dont try to sell that stuff at my house. Ive lived too long and remember too much. Ive worked for minimum wage at $.50/hr. and Ive worked at a number of jobs for less. I have no complaints, because by the time I retired I was making a great deal more than minimum wage, but that was because someone thought my services were worth it, not because they wanted to throw more money into the system to boost my buying power. If we are ever to get out of the mess we are in, were going to have to stop doing things like what Nehring is suggesting, and return to the principles of Econ 101 that she condemns.Dave Groff HomosassaVote for Amendment 1Contrary to popular rhetoric, more development means higher taxes. This is easy to validate. The standard of economic principles is supply and demand. More supply for a given demand means lower pricing. Every newly plotted lot decreases the value of existing parcels. Every new house built decreases the value of existing homes. Amendment 1 can put downward pressureon taxing trends and help make every existing home and parcel more valuable. Vote for lower taxes and higher home values. Vote for Amendment 1.Steve Kingery Crystal River

Is survey legit?Can someone let me know if this American Community Survey that appears to be coming from the U.S. Department of Commerce U.S. Census Bureau is actually from them? They seem to be asking for a lot of personal information from how much your mortgage payment is and all. It just seems like its just kind of personal for the real U.S. Census Bureau, but maybe it is. And before I fill it out and send it in, I was wondering if this can be verified whether or not this is really from the Census Bureau.Editors note:You can call the Census Bureau at 800-354-7271. Couldnt leave messageTo the gentleman who made the remark about the call to the VA: Im the person who called and could not get a hold of the VA or even leave a message. I started calling actually about 4:10. I started keeping track of the time about 4:20. It was about almost 4:45 and still nobody answered. You couldnt leave a message because the machine kept repeating back the same remark, same remark. It never stopped to let you leave a message.Thanks, Lt. EllisId like to thank Lt. Greg Ellis from Crystal River Fire Department. He helped me with my trailer on Rock Crusher Road when it lost a wheel. He went to the station, got a jack and got me on my way.Yard sale a bad ideaIm calling to congratulate the commissioners on another terrible decision and to tell them that theyve just shot down a 40-year-old tradition by allowing a woman to stage a 15-mile-long so-called yard sale on the same weekend as the Homosassa Civic Clubs annual event. The Arts, Crafts and Seafood Festival is the event. Not only that, but this yard sale is to take place on U.S. 19. This is the bigger problem. The only way to get in or out of Homosassa is on U.S. 19. Believe me, more traffic is not necessary, and its not needed. The people who are involved in the festival are pretty concerned, and theyre upset and theyre angry. They really did not need this very new problem. Obviously no one on the BOCC has ever been to the Homosassa Seafood Festival, or they would realize that theyve made a stupid mistake.All blather, no substanceFor some time now, Ive watched the two major candidates for governor crucify one another on television, yet not once have I heard either one say what they would do if they were elected. Id like to know what they would champion.Roads need resurfacingThere are many roads in Citrus County that need badly to be resurfaced. Weeds (are) growing through cracks in the roads. Potholes along lime-rock roads like mine are unhealthy, dusty and need constant repairs. I suffer from COPD along with countless others. Property maintenance seems to be last to get any funds for resurfacing. We all drive cars on these roads. Public safety should be uppermost than saving one penny for Citrus. Pie-in-the-sky projects like Citrus Memorial hospital, Duke gas plants, are in the future. For now we need help fast. Splitting hairsWhere does the Chronicle come from? Talk about being in lockstep with the commissioners and the government. The Tourism Development Councils efforts are not funded by local taxpayers a statement you made. Sounds like what the Tourism Development Council says. When we charge 3 percent sales tax on a RV lot or room, or room we rent or any motel room, somebody pays it. And thats the people you see walking around American people, citizens of this county, visitors to this county. If the hotel didnt have to charge 3 percent more, maybe they could give a 3 percent raise to their employees. Maybe they could do their own advertising with that extra 3 percent that they collect but dont get to keep. So, yes, that tax money is paid for by local citizens. Our boat ramps are choked, our rivers are being degraded, traffic is heavy everywhere. Why do we need to be attracting more tourists here? Who will really benefit? A few people. The county will grow. This county will be visited without a government agency spending money to promote it. Do away with the TDC. Editors note:Obviously, some of bed tax revenues collected in Citrus County comes from local residents, but the majority are from visitors; thus the conclusion that the bed tax revenues come primarily from people outside the county. The TDC was formed to attract more visitors, so they would spend money with local businesses where local people earn their living.Dont vandalize signsI notice there are a couple of signs around town that say Vote Democratic Enough is Enough. One is out by Walmart and theres another one down the road from there and some out by Cowboy Junction and someone scratched out the Vote Democratic. And you know what? That is just hateful. And on top of being hateful, its illegal. So I dont know whats wrong with these people around here.Shelve the mothballsSpreading mothballs to ward off snakes and varmints is not a good idea because they are poisonous to your dogs or any other critters that might eat one. It would be best to put out rags soaked in ammonia.C4SUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLECOMMENTARY 000HQOE Community Happenings Community Happenings 000JAVQ The Sgt.

Cake and charityWe attended a Grannys Attic sale at St. Timothys Lutheran Church, U.S. 19, Crystal River. It was on Friday and Saturday (Oct. 10 and 11) on the grounds and inside the fellowship hall. The sale was held to provide financial help to Hospice, Mission in Citrus County and the Key Training Center. There were homemade baked goods, handwork, tools, plants, etc. We even found a rhubarb cake delicious. These church members gave many days of their time preparing and staffing this event and for a worthy secular charity in our county. Thank you all.No bailout pleaseIts Sunday, Oct. 12. Im reading that a private business wants Citrus County to bail them out. Citrus County does not have an income per se. That translates to the citizens of Citrus County, the taxpayers, having to pay for this lovely idea. This smacks of some of the other less desirable things the county taxpayers have had to pay for. If we the taxpayers go along with this scheme and it is a scheme then all other businesses in Citrus County should be afforded the same privilege. A county referendum should be passed that everything that smacks anything that smacks of this private enterprise and the county going jointly to benefit private enterprise be put up for a vote of the residents of Citrus County, not the county commissioners. For instance, Meadowcrest purchase: private business profited, not the county.Educate yourself Im calling regarding the medical marijuana issue. I just wanted to state that I had a diagnosis of neuropathy in both of my feet, of unknown origin. And nobody knew how to treat it. I went to various different doctors and a year ago I went to visit relatives in a state that has medical marijuana and I put cream on my feet, both feet, both for 10 nights and for a whole year now, Ive had no pain in either foot. So I just wanted to say that medical marijuana is not about getting high; its about getting cured. I could take all sorts of pharmaceutical drugs to cure my feet but all it took was a cream on my feet and I havent had pain in a year. No pain, no problem. So I think people need to get educated about what this is about.Being positiveThank you, Gerry Mulligan, for your excellent column on Sunday, Oct. 12, reminding us of all the positive things that are going on in Citrus County. Sometimes we forget how fortunate we are to be living here. So thank you for keeping us informed.Stop bullyingThis is for the whole school: They should wear blue to stop being bullied in every school in Florida. This is very important for the kids not to have bullies going after kids. This is very important. Again, please wear blue to stop the bullies. This is very important for all kids.Thanks, CCSOI would like to give a shout out to the (sheriffs) department, Citrus County (sheriffs) department. They were wonderful. They saved my life two weeks ago. More Sound Off!In todays Sundays (Oct. 12) paper, I read a nice article in the paper (about) what most people I would say 90 percent of the people in this county talk about your newspaper and the main thing that they read it for is the Sound Off column. Thats the main thing I read it for. Anyway, why dont you print more Sound Off in there? You average two or three little articles about Sound Off when Im sure you get hundreds a day. And you can give a lot of free publicity to the politicians in this county, so why cant you give something to the people of this county what they deserve? They enjoy the Sound Off. Print more of it.Drug war a shamThe war on drugs in this country is like most things our government gets involved in. Its a sham. It doesnt seem to work very well, but it sure has created a lot of jobs.Any carolers?Now that it is fall, are there any groups who plan on Christmas caroling? It would certainly give the mall a festive atmosphere. Years ago I remember hearing the delightful music of carolers. I was not askedIn regards to the fence on (County Road) 486: My property backed up to the fence, and, flimsy as it was, it still reduced the traffic noise by at least 60 percent. I liked the fence. No one asked me if I wanted the fence taken down and it was on my property. Now that (C.R.) 486 has been expanded, now I get to listen to all the noisy traffic facing the Walmart, and thats just lovely. Thats just what I wanted to hear.COMMENTARYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014 C5 000HQOE Community Happenings Community Happenings Sponsored by: The BFF Society presents the $25.00 per person Includes: Lunch and Fashion Show For more information, call Sylvia at 352-563-1606 or Alica at 352-564-2336 Proceeds go to Pat Woessner Scholarship/Education Fund Changing Lives Through Education 7th Annual Pat Woessner Fashion Extravaganz a Citrus Hills Golf & Country Club Saturday, November 15 10:30am to 2:00pm (Shopping 10:30am to 11:30am) 000J7RE The BFF Society, Inc. is a Not for Profit Organization with a 501C3!

Henry Ford the socialist?I wonder what todays GOP would think of Henry Ford, premier U.S. capitalist. They would probably dub him a socialist, Marxist or worse. Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success, said Ford. If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself. Henry Ford was noted for introducing the assembly line to the automotive industry. He not only revolutionized manufacturing, but he also practiced unique labor policies. Controversial at times, teamwork was the underlying concept behind Fords human resource policies. By eliminating inequalities among his workers, Ford created an environment where innovation was encouraged and individual accountability was paramount. The GOP would probably be up in arms about the high wages Ford paid workers. His employees were paid twice the average rate. He believed higher wages were good for his company and for his country. Paying high wages is behind the prosperity of this country, said Ford. Ones own employees ought to be ones own best customers. Investing in the United States and its people should be the No. 1 priority for all Americans, but to the GOP thats socialism.Kathy Dobronyi InvernessIm voting against Amendment 2It was quite a debate recently between state Rep. Jimmie T. Smith and super attorney John Morgan. Morgan referred to Smith as Jimmie Ray until someone corrected him. Rather than just letting it go with a simple apology, Morgan said he thought everyone in this area had names like Jimmie Ray, John Boy and Billy Bob. Wonder if Morgan thinks we are all illiterate hillbillies in Citrus County? This debate was not about whether medical marijuana should be legalized, but rather about whether this should be a constitutional amendment. Morgan, an extremely skilled attorney, continued to misdirect the discussion into whether marijuana should be legalized. Much as Jimmie T. attempted to return to the real question of whether this should be part of the Florida Constitution, Morgan continued to make it appear that Smith was against helping those who needed this help. That was not the question at all, as Smith is in favor of legalizing medical marijuana but not as an amendment. Morgan made it seem that Smith was totally against medical marijuana. Outside the auditorium was John Morgans 45-foot luxury motor home with a huge sign down the entire side exhorting everyone to vote yes on Amendment 2. Tally up what he is paying his entourage, the cost of the motor home, fuel, food, etc. for his traveling attempt to push through Amendment 2, one must ask why. Who is financing this effort? Why is someone attempting to sway Florida voters into amending our constitution? Why is Morgan disguising the real question, which is whether we should amend our constitution, not whether medical marijuana should be made legal? He is one slick lawyer, thats for sure! Medical professionals, legislators, even theChroniclehave come out against Amendment 2. Only people who have been fooled by a slick lawyer are for it. Me? I am voting against Amendment 2.Harry Cooper HernandoWe love you just the way you areThe discussion topic was love and got this AA thinking. Last nights topic at the meeting was love. People had many different descriptions and definitions. The way I see it, in our AA program, love is the same as grace. Some find grace in the eyes of God, some in their spouse, and others, like myself, find grace in the members of Alcoholics Anonymous. Grace to me means loving someone even when I think they dont deserve it. I find that some of our members are harder to love than others. If you think you love everyone, maybe youre not going to enough meetings. Youll never find more of a mixed breed of Gods children than you will in the rooms of AA. We in AA love one another in a special way. Some have said that there are three different stages of love: eros love, based on strong feelings toward another; philos love, based on friendship between two people; and agape, which is totally selfless. In the latter, a person gives out love to another person even if this act does not benefit her/him in any way. I think most of the love that I express for my fellows is of the philos, or friendship, variety. For a few, agape love applies. And as for the other type of love, we wont go there in this article. Shaking hands and hugging is a way of letting others know that we are here as one family in sobriety. We in AA are not concerned what you have done or where you have been. We love you just the way you are. We are not here to fix any medical, family or legal issues. Our job is to help you help yourself. Just know that when we say we love you, it may not be the same as we love our children or spouse, but nonetheless there is a brand of love which applies and if you will let us, we can love you into sobriety. That is love as I see it.Ernie Porter InvernessC6SUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLECOMMENTARY 000JD2V 000ISE2 CITRUS COUNTY RECYCLES Meet at 9:30am in the Inverness Walmart parking lot (southeast corner closest to Wendys) Hosted by Keep Citrus County Beautiful, Inc.

Section DSUNDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Bruce WilliamsSMART MONEY DEAR BRUCE: My granddaughter is married to a man who will be in prison for the rest of his life. He worked at the same place for over 10 years and has a 401(k), which no one can get to. He refuses to sign the papers. She is the one who put him in prison, and it is unlikely he ever will sign. She needs the money desperately for the children. Other than hiring a highpriced attorney, is there any way she can get this money? He refuses to have any contact with her. M.B. DEAR M.B.: Youre going to have to consult an attorney. Whether the price is high is another matter, and even then, there are no guarantees that this man can be compelled by the courts to turn that money over to your granddaughter. You can understand why hes not cooperating with her. There is no question of her need for the money, and I could give you a number of things to try, but they wouldnt do you any good. I am sorry, but you will have to consult an attorney. Good luck. DEAR BRUCE: What do people do who do not have enough finances to afford retirement? I will be lucky to have $1,000 from Social Security, and with a late start on my IRA account, I will be 72 before I can tap into it. Are there places where I can live and volunteer my time for living expenses and low-cost medical care? Linda DEAR LINDA: I certainly can understand how a person can fall on hard times. There may be someplace that you can volunteer your time in exchange for medical care and living expenses, but I have not been able to find even one. That having been said, your best shot is to consult the Internet for this type of activity. I wouldnt hold out any strong hope for an outcome of a positive nature, but you have nothing to lose by trying. Please let me know how you make out. Man and his savings both locked up See MONEY/ Page D4 Dr. Frederick Herzog, Ph.DNONPROFIT BRIEFS IRS requires charitable nonprofits to operate within the scope of certain parameters based on the particular IRS tax code for which the nonprofit originally applied. Nonprofits receive tremendous benefits with respect to income and sales tax exemptions. Coincidentally, public inspection of certain documents is required by IRS. However, at the same time, there are defined limitations on which documents and when and how they can be inspected by the public. For-profit businesses do not enjoy the benefit of tax exemptions nonprofits are granted. They pay taxes on their net income after legitimate expenses are taken. The net profit after taxes can be paid as the reward owners and shareholders enjoy for their investment and the potential business risks they assume. Nonprofit officers, directors and other volunteers do not enjoy this profit incentive because they are not shareholders or owners in the traditional sense. The nonprofit organization receives the exemptions because it ministers to unmet community needs. PUBLIC INSPECTION OF DOCUMENTSPublic charities must make certain documents available for public inspection. Much of the documentary information about nonprofits already exists in state and federal documents. Therefore, the right of public inspection is not overwhelmingly intrusive, as most of the information is out in the public domain. In its wisdom, the IRS has set reasonable conditions as to just how, when and at what cost a public inspection may occur. Nonprofits may charge reasonable copying costs and postage when documents are requested to be sent. They can also make information available by the use of email. Another option is posting the documents on a website. If the nonprofit has an office, inspection may take place there, but at reasonable times. Nonprofit disclosure matters, Part 5 See HERZOG/ Page D5 Associated PressBenoit Fauve, a speech scientist with ValidSoft, points to a screen displaying the voice biometric features of a telephone call on Sept. 15 during a demonstration at the companys office in central London. An AP survey of the market found that more than 65 million people worldwide have had their voiceprints taken. And an Associated Press investigation has found that two of Americas biggest retail banks, Chase and Wells Fargo, are quietly taking some callers voiceprints to fight fraud. MEET THE VOICE HARVESTERSRAPHAELSATTER Associated PressLONDONThis call may be monitored.You hear it every time you phone your bank about a lost credit card or an unexpected charge. You may realize your bank is recording you, but did you know it could be taking your biometric data, too? An Associated Press investigation has found that two of Americas biggest retail banks JPMorgan Chase & Co., and Wells Fargo & Co. are quietly recording the biometric details of some callers voices to weed out fraud. The technology, sometimes called voiceprinting, is aimed at bad guys rather than legitimate customers, but legal and privacy experts alike still have reservations about the practice. Reducing fraud is a good thing, said Jay Stanley, an analyst at the American Civil Liberties Union. But he warned that we cant anticipate what bright new uses this database will be put to in the future. Blacklists help banks by alerting them to repeat calls from clever crooks who try to break into peoples accounts armed with personal data gleaned from credit bureau reports or stolen in high-profile cyberattacks like the ones that have rocked Target and other major U.S. retailers. Mark Lazar, a vice president at Verint Systems Inc., said that when combined with other fraud detection techniques, voice biometric blacklists were effectively blocking the bad guys from banks call centers. Within a few months, we see a 90 percent reduction in the types of calls these fraudsters are making, he said. The technology is winning converts fast. Avivah Litan, an analyst with technology research firm Gartner, estimates that by next year, 25 major U.S. call centers will be using some form of voiceprint technology, a five-fold increase over last year. As it stands, seven major American financial institutions are already using blacklists or have run pilots, said Shirley Inscoe, an analyst with the Aite Group, a research and advisory firm. Inscoe declined to identify the institutions, but said they largely saw them as a quiet and effective way of dealing with fraud. Its in the background. It doesnt affect the call in any way, said Inscoe. Nobody even knows its happening. Many governments and businesses use voiceprinting openly. A recent AP survey of 10 leading voice biometric vendors found that more than 65 million people worldwide have had their voiceprints taken, and that several banks, including Barclays PLC in Britain and Minneapolis-based U.S. Bancorp, are in the process of introducing their customers to the technology. But fighting fraud happens more discreetly. One person familiar with Verints deployment said that the companys technology has been at work at Chases credit card arm since last year, when Verints predecessor, Victrio, was helping screen roughly 1 million calls a month. Two people familiar with how the technology is being used at Wells Fargo said the San Francisco-based bank struck a deal for a similar voice biometric blacklist provided by Israelbased NICE Systems Ltd. NICE and Verint declined to comment on their customers. Chase and Wells Fargo declined to comment in any detail on their fraud prevention strategies. Chase spokeswoman Patricia Wexler said the company was exploring many types of biometric authentication, but did not use voice biometric technology with customers. She declined to say whether the company was using the technology to screen calls for suspected criminals. At Wells Fargo, spokeswoman Natalie M. Brown said ... sharing any information about our fraud prevention measures would jeopardize their effectiveness. Banks may run into trouble when they deploy voice biometric technology secretly, legal experts See VOICE/ Page D5

DEAR BRUCE: My 97-yearold aunt is staying at an assisted living place for $2,200 a month. She is out of money and has no estate left except a life insurance policy to cover her funeral. Im cashing in another of her policies for $7,000 and moving her to a cheaper room to extend her stay there another seven months. She has a monthly income of $1,200 in Social Security and $300 from her pension. My sisters and I have been paying the extra $1,000 a month to keep her where she is instead of moving her to the indigent wing. When she dies, will I need to hire an attorney to settle her estate, or lack of estate? K.E. DEAR K.E.: I sympathize with your situation. Have you consulted with Medicaid to see if there is some assistance there? In most cases, there should be, if she exhausted all of her assets and is willing to contribute the biggest part of her Social Security and monthly pension. As to needing an attorney to settle the lack of her estate, I dont see any reason for that. At the very most, it may take a couple of hours of an attorneys time to be sure everything is in order. DEAR BRUCE: My wife and I have $548,000 in mutual funds; 21 percent of them are large value investments, 19 percent in large blend and 27 percent in large growth. The remaining 33 percent is in medium REIT funds, and 11 percent of the large funds are in IRAs. All dividends and capital gains are being reinvested. Our monthly income, including my pension, Social Security and IRA withdrawals of $551, is $5,906. At the current rate of withdrawal, our IRAs should last another 10 years. We have no mortgage and no debt. We own the house where we live and have just sold another house with the result that we have over $100,000 to invest. I have been considering putting the money into such mutual funds as Fidelity Fourin-One Index, Vanguard High Dividend Yield, Vanguard Long-Term Tax-Exempt Bond and Vanguard European Stock Index, but with various financial columnists warning of an impending downturn in the stock market, I wonder if there might be a safer alternative. B.C. DEAR B.C.: You have provided a rather lengthy explanation of your investments, and I think you have done well. You also mentioned you have an additional $100,000 that has resulted from the sale of a house. Cutting through all the baloney, as you point out, many financial columnists are warning of an impending downturn. If you believe thats the case, the answer is clear: Get out now! There is no question the markets lost a good deal of value in the last month or so. On the other side of that, what goes down will eventually go back up, but if you cant sleep at night because of the rather large swings in the market, at least convert two-thirds of your savings to cash. In my opinion, if the market does sink rather considerably (10 percent to 15 percent is not unheard of), I believe it will recapture if you sit tight. This is coming from personal experience, but I am not suggesting that this is right for you. You have to make the decision, and its a tough one. Send questions to bruce@brucewilliams.com.

Stocks dont come with guarantees, but health care stocks have held up better than others during past downturns. People get sick regardless of the economys strength, after all, and an aging population around the world means more demand for prescription drugs and hospital care. That has brought more attention to health care stock funds, as worries about a weak global economy have sent stocks sinking in recent weeks. Health care stock funds have returned an average of 19.1 percent annually over the last five years, more than any of the other 101 fund categories tracked by Morningstar. The strong returns are luring more dollars: Investors put more into health care funds last month than they pulled out, contrary to the trend for stock funds in general. But its important to keep in mind that conditions are much different for the sector than they were five years ago. Heres a look at some questions to consider before buying a health care fund.ARE HEALTH CARE STOCK FUNDS REALLY SAFER?Everything is relative, but they have been in the past. Were investing in demand for health, and that comes in drugs, devices and hospital services, says Jean Hynes, manager of the Vanguard Health Care fund (VGHCX), whose $40.9 billion in assets makes it the largest fund in the category by far. Demand for those tends to be more stable than it is for, say, electronics or other non-essentials. Consider how the financial crisis dragged the Standard & Poors 500 index to a loss of 37 percent in 2008, even after factoring in dividends. That year, health care stock funds lost an average of 23.4 percent. Many of the big pharmaceutical companies and insurers in the sector also pay dividends, which can help offer a smoother ride. Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer and Merck are the three largest health care stocks in the S&P 500, and all have a higher dividend yield than the index.WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR IN A HEALTH CARE STOCK FUND?Even within the health care sector, some types of stocks are safer than others. On the more volatile end are biotechnology stocks, which can be boom-or-bust investments depending on how much excitement their drugs under development are generating. Puma Biotechnology, for example, has more than doubled this year, but that includes some extreme swings. This summer, it posted a one-day loss of 25.3 percent and a one-day gain of 295.4 percent. Investors hoping for a smoother ride should look for funds with a smaller percentage of their assets in biotechnology stocks, says Eddie Yoon. He manages the Fidelity Select Health Care Portfolio fund (FSPHX), which has a four-star rating from Morningstar. Yoon has been paring back on biotech stocks: They make up 25 percent of his funds assets, down from 28 percent two years earlier. Thats even as surging prices for biotech stocks have made them a bigger part of the sector: They make up 22 percent of the index that Yoon benchmarks his fund against, up from 16 percent two years earlier.WHY DID HEALTH CARE FUNDS DO SO WELL OVER THE PAST FIVE YEARS?Health care funds were available at bargain prices five years ago. Thats when Congress was debating how to reform the health care system, and some investors worried that new regulations could hurt profits. Pharmaceutical stocks were hurt by worries about a slowdown in government approvals for new drugs. There were also concerns that a raft of patent expirations for high-profile drugs would send profits for large drugmakers off a cliff. Fast forward to now, and we have a system where we at least understand what the system is going to look like, Hynes says. Companies have gotten through the patent cliffs in a way that was very predictable, and we are in a new and exciting product cycle. The Affordable Care Act has meant more people have health insurance, which analysts expect will lead to higher demand for health care. Health care stocks in the S&P 500 trade at 20 times their earnings per share over the prior 12 months. Five years ago, they had a price-earnings ratio of 12.SO THE NEXT FIVE YEARS WILL BE JUST AS GOOD, RIGHT?Unlike five years ago, health care stocks are no longer cheap. Many are close to their average price-earnings ratios over the last few decades. Biotechnology stocks in particular can look expensive, as demand for their strong potential growth has inflated price-earnings ratios. That makes it tougher for health care funds to replicate their returns. But prospects for companies earnings look better today than five years ago, Hynes says. Demand for health care tends to spike once a person gets past the age of 70. A similar leap occurs when someone enters the middle class. Both trends are occurring around the world, as the Baby Boom generation enters retirement and developing economies in China and India vault millions of families into the middle class. Can health care stock funds stay on top?

With few exceptions, normal business hours are reasonable. Asking to view documents on a weekend day or after business hours is not considered reasonable. Nonprofits may also direct the inquiries to government websites where the majority of these basic documents are displayed. DOCUMENTS THE PUBLIC MAY INSPECTThe two main documents reserved for public inspection are the exemption applications and the annual information returns. The exemption application, with any supporting documents, is historically the most extensive. The annual information return includes income and expenses in a consolidated format. Donation amounts are listed, but donor names and addresses are not required to be listed or disclosed. The Social Security numbers of the officers and directors are also never disclosed on either of the documents the public may inspect. As a general rule, only the three most current years of the annual information return may be viewed by the public. Publicly available information may always be obtained directly from the IRS for a fee. PENALTIES FOR NONDISCLOSUREPenalties for withholding legitimate requests can be imposed on a responsible person denying the request. There is a penalty of $20 per day for as long as the refusal continues. A $10,000 maximum penalty applies for a failure to provide an information return. There is no maximum penalty applied to application requests.Dr. Frederick J Herzog is the Founder and Executive Director of the NonProfit Resource Center in Citrus County, Florida.

Thats because some states, such as Illinois and Texas, restrict the collection or sharing of biometric data. A confidential company memo obtained by the AP provides some insight into companies attempts to build legal cover for their work. The document, dated Aug. 1, 2013, lays out NICEs plans for the creation of a blacklist shared across a consortium of different companies. It carries advice from NICE to U.S. banks suggesting that they deal with issues of consent by changing the traditional message at the beginning of each call to say: This call may be monitored, recorded and processed for quality assurance and fraud prevention purposes. Creating a voiceprint from the call falls under processing, the memo explains. Sharing the voiceprints within the consortium is for the purposes of fraud prevention. Tech and privacy lawyer David Klein, the managing partner of New York-based Klein Moynihan Turco, said he had doubts about whether playing a canned message to callers counted as getting consent to gather biometric data. Its at best a passive, assumed consent that theyre obtaining from the calling party, he said. It isnt clear that banks are using the suggested language. A recent call to Chases credit card support number was met with a recorded message saying: This call will be monitored or recorded. Nearly identical language played during a call to a Wells Fargo number. Neither Wells Fargo nor Chase responded to questions specifically addressing the legality of their voice harvesting. NICE confirmed that the memo was genuine. It said the purpose was merely to suggest new language for telephone calls and did not constitute legal advice. Industry observers said that, regardless of the legal issues, few would raise a fuss over the collection of biometric information from suspected criminals. Banks truly are trying to protect legitimate customers, said Inscoe. She said the blacklists had to be seen in the context of organized gangs that call banks repetitively to try to break into accounts. The ACLUs Stanley said he understood the anti-fraud argument, but worried about where the technology could lead. Collection of information about people always starts with narrow purposes that nobody objects to, he said. But then it broadens from there and thats where the trouble can start. VOICEContinued from Page D1 Associated PressLONDON Over the telephone, in jail and online, a new digital bounty is being harvested: the human voice. Businesses and governments around the world increasingly are turning to voice biometrics, or voiceprints, to pay pensions, collect taxes, track criminals and replace passwords. We sometimes call it the invisible biometric, said Mike Goldgof, an executive at Madrid-based AGNITiO, one of about 10 leading companies in the field. Those companies have helped enter more than 65 million voiceprints into corporate and government databases, according to Associated Press interviews with dozens of industry representatives and records requests in the United States, Europe and elsewhere. Theres a misconception that the technology we have today is only in the domain of the intelligence services, or the domain of Star Trek, said Paul Burmester, of London-based ValidSoft, a voice biometric vendor. The technology is here today, well-proven and commonly available. And in high demand. Dan Miller, an analyst with Opus Research in San Francisco, estimates that the industrys revenue will roughly double from just under $400 million last year to between $730 million and $900 million next year. Barclays PLC recently experimented with voiceprinting as an identification for its wealthiest clients. It was so successful that Barclays is rolling it out to the rest of its 12 million retail banking customers. The general feeling is that voice biometrics will be the de facto standard in the next two or three years, said Iain Hanlon, a Barclays executive. Vendors say the timbre of a persons voice is unique in a way similar to the loops and whorls at the tips of someones fingers. Their technology measuresthe characteristics of a persons speech as air is expelled from the lungs, across the vocal folds of the larynx, up the pharynx, over the tongue, and out through the lips, nose and teeth. Typical speaker recognition software compares those characteristics with data held on a server. If two voiceprints are similar enough, the system declares them a match. The Vanguard Group Inc., a Pennsylvania-based mutual fund manager, is among the technologys many financial users. Tens of thousands of customers log in to their accounts by speaking the phrase: At Vanguard, my voice is my password into the phone. Weve done a lot of testing, and looked at siblings, even twins, said executive John Buhl, whose voice was a bit hoarse during a telephone interview. Even people with colds, like I have today, we looked at that. Activists worry that the popularity of voiceprinting has a downside. Its more mass surveillance, said Sadhbh McCarthy, an Irish privacy researcher. The next thing you know, that will be given to border guards, and youll need to speak into a microphone when you get back from vacation. Voiceprints being harvested by the millions Associated PressAn Israeli man speaks on the phone Sept. 14 next to the NICE Systems buildings in the city of Raanana, Israel. Businesses and governments around the world are increasingly turning to voice biometrics, or voiceprints, to replace passwords and fight fraud.

(http://www.isavea2z. com/easy-halloween-craftideas-milk-jug-ghosts) Take discount-store glow sticks to a party-supplies store and ask the clerk to insert them into yellow or white balloons before inflating the balloons with helium.

MLS #713649 $119,900 NEW LISTING Light up Halloween night with homemade luminaries JENNIFERFORKER Associated PressThis Halloween, lighten things up with luminaries. There are lots of quick, do-it-yourself projects to make the flickering lights that welcome partiers or trick-or-treaters. Besides their welcoming glow, luminaries can add sophistication or fun to a sidewalk, staircase, fireplace mantel or front stoop, says Eddie Ross, East Coast design editor for Better Homes and Gardens. And you can make them from a variety of everyday objects, from milk jugs to glass jars to paper bags. Ross has a slew of illuminating ideas at bhg.com, and there are more at Pinterest.com/Halloween and other websites. Just insert one or more batteryoperated votives or a string of 25 holiday lights into any of these DIY projects:SOPHISTICATED Drill holes any size into a real or fabricated gourd or pumpkin. Use patterns or lines, or try monogramming your initial. For a pumpkin, cut an access hole at the bottom and clean out the goo from there. Ross recommends using a white or sugar pumpkin. The latter are used for baking; grocery stores sell them. Drizzle fake blood down the outside of a clear-glass cylinder, then wrap it with parchment paper and secure with double-stick tape. It looks like something you see when youre putting slides under a microscope, says Ross. Its sophisticated and pretty but creepy, too. Remove labels from empty steel cans and punch holes in them with an awl and hammer, either randomly or with a design. From the blog Making Lemonade: Wrap a glass vase in vellum or freezer paper, both of which are translucent; cut the paper to fit the vase. Add stickers to the unpatterned side of the vellum or the waxy side of the freezer paper, then rewrap and tape the paper sticker side on the inside to the vase with clear tape. (http://making lemonadeblog.com/diy-halloweendecor-witch-luminaries)FUN Decoupage the outside of any glass jar in orange tissue paper and add a pumpkin face using whatever is on hand a permanent black marker, stickers or googly eyes. For a mummy look, wrap a glass jar with gauze bandages and glue on two googly eyes, or wrap black-paper facial features beneath vellum or masking tape for a similar look. Using an orange paper bag (similar in size to paper lunch bags and available at most discount stores), cut out a pumpkin face from one side. Insert a smaller yellow or white paper bag with the votives inside. From the blog Family Corner: Paint the outside of a glass jar with white acrylic paint, let it dry completely, and then draw on a ghostly face using a permanent black marker. Fill it in using black acrylic paint. Use different base colors orange, red, green, purple to create monsters.

as many as six. Mature seeds readily detach and cling to clothing, fur and feathers. They germinate well and quickly on the ground as soon as soil temperatures are suitable in spring or between frosts. Dry seeds can remain viable for several years. The University of Florida website has an information publication, No.SP37, about Bidens at edis.ifas.ufl/fw005. It includes pictures. It outlines how to control the weeds. If you have time, patience and diligence, hand-pull plants and seedlings regularly as part of your routine garden maintenance. Those along grassy roadsides and in lawns can be mowed frequently. UF suggests spraying with a broadleaf herbicide such as 2,4-D, dicambra, triclopyr or glyphosate. These are systemic herbicides without soil activity, meaning they will not control sprouting seedlings. Since the thousands of seeds germinate from spring right through to mid-winter, a pre-emergent herbicide can be used. UF recommends Aminopyralid herbicide (sold commercially as Milestone) that has both pre-emergent and post-emergent activity and provides residual control for about four months after application. Landscape supply warehouses may carry it, or you can hire a licensed, professional pest control company. Always read and follow the label directions. The naming within this genus is chaotic. Both common names and the botanical names are used as synonyms for each other. Some Bidenswere formerly thought to be Cosmos, a related aster. By any name, they contain nectar that attracts honeybees and butterflies. The leaves are a host plant for moth and butterfly caterpillars, including the Dainty Sulphur butterfly larva.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant. Semiretired, she grows thousands of native plants. Visitors are welcome to her Dunnellon, Marion County, garden.

Its just that in summer, when the plants go dormant, the plant has nothing at all to show no leaves or flowers. Hardy cyclamens are as easy to grow as florists cyclamens and need pretty much the same conditions: perfectly drained soil and shallow planting. Tubers should sit with their tops just slightly below soil level. My plants have flowered indoors at east windows and outdoors on the shaded, north side of the house.GETTING STARTEDHardy cyclamens are generally available from specialist nurseries (such as Sunfarms, www.sunfarm.com), but once you have some plants, new ones are easy enough to propagate. Sometime after bloom, surely while the plants are dormant, youll note seed capsules, each about the size of a small marble, lying on the soil surface. These seed capsules, like the flowers, are still tethered to the soil, this time by stalks now coiled like springs. The seeds would likely selfsow, but to multiply your holdings more deliberately, pop the seeds out of the dry capsules. Books and seed catalogs offer elaborate instructions for germinating cyclamen seeds, detailing planting depth as well as sequential requirements for both warm and cool temperatures. Ive followed such directives and gotten the seeds to germinate. Then again, Ive also just sowed the seeds shallowly in pots, kept the soil moist and waited eventually they seem to germinate no matter what you do. What is important is to keep the young seedlings growing continuously through their first year. Theyre not old enough for their summer dormancy until their second year, at which time they generally start to flower.

See DIGEST / Page E4 Cyclamen kin are dainty but hardy LEEREICH Associated PressFor the past few weeks, dainty pink or white butterflies have been hovering above the bare soil in some of my clay flowerpots. Theyre not really butterflies, actually: They are cyclamen blossoms held aloft on thin flower stalks. These are not the cyclamens you typically find offered in florist shops, those plants with bold flowers and lush foliage. My cyclamens are among the few species of so-called hardy cyclamens (Cyclamen hederifolium, for example). They differ from florists cyclamens not only in their diminutive leaves and flowers but also in their ability to live outdoors year round, even in cold climates. My cyclamen plants are still leafless, the flowers being their first sign of life as they awaken from their summer dormancy. These blossoms will hover in place for weeks to come.THE SHOW GOES ONEven after the blossoms finally fade and drop, the show will not be over. Soon to begin is the leafy show. The leaves are heart-shaped, but rounded rather than pointed at the end, with silvery mottling painted over the dark green background. The silvery design differs from one plant to the next. The leaves last for weeks, perhaps all winter if temperatures are not too frigid. So theres really no time of year LEE REICH/Associated PressThe dainty flowers of hardy cyclamensgrowing in a pot in New Paltz, New York. GARDENContinued from Page E7

Choosing the right generator Associated PressAs storms have become more severe in many parts of the country and power outages more frequent, home generators have gone from luxury items to mainstream ones. Prices have come down, thanks to growing demand and cheaper technology. But the idea of buying and installing one can still be daunting, mainly because there are so many variables to consider. Much depends on how much you want the generator to do. A look at some generator basics:BUILT-IN OR PORTABLEThe biggest question is whether to buy a built-in generator, which has to be professionally installed and runs on natural gas, or a portable unit, which is cheaper and runs on gasoline. The built-in kicks in automatically in a power outage; the portable has to be started manually. Built-in generators look similar to air conditioners, usually sitting on the side of a house. They are more expensive than portables; installation could run $1,500-plus. But they have one big advantage, says Ken Collier, editor-in-chief at The Family Handyman: Once a built-in generator is put in place, you dont have to touch it again. They are a great choice for people for whom spending a few thousand Agents achieve production milestones ERA American Realty & Investments is proud to announce the latest production levels achieved by its agents year to date.

lesser powered machine cost 20 years ago, Minick says. A portable generator, which runs on gasoline, costs about half that.THE BIGGER PICTUREOf course, buying a generator is just one piece of being ready for a power outage, Collier notes. Gassing up your car is crucial in storm preparedness, since it can provide everything from heat and a radio to a place to charge your phone when power goes out. Having modern flashlights ones with LED lights and lithium batteries is another priority, Collier says. They use little energy and are powered by batteries that last for years. bucks for the security of having power is worth it, Collier says. Portable generators, on the other hand, can be powerful enough to do the trick. But they have to be started manually, and you must have gasoline on hand before any storm. You cant have the gasoline so long that it becomes unusable: Collier says gasoline goes stale after about a month. In addition, turning on a portable generator often requires several steps, which isnt necessarily easy in stormy, dark conditions. There are safety concerns, too. Because they are powered by gasoline, portable generators emit carbon monoxide, so they must be set up away from the home and windows.HOW MUCH POWEROnce youve decided what kind of generator to get, you need to determine how powerful it should be. Do you want to just keep the fridge and a few lights running, for instance, or do you want to light up the whole house? Russ Minick, vice president of the countrys largest home-generator manufacturer, Generac, recommends buying a generator with at least 5,000 watts, which he says is the minimum needed to power just a refrigerator and lights. Running air conditioning or heat requires more powerful units, he says. Generac has a sizing calculator on its website, generac.com, to help people decide how powerful a unit they want. The bigger the generator, the more it costs. Generac recently debuted a baseline built-in generator for less than $2,000 a far cry from the $8,000 aCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014E5 E12SUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE www.FloridaSho wcasePr operties.com SERVING ALL OF CITRUS COUNTY 000JLBF PINE RIDGE 1481 W.

The Haviland Company produced china in large quantities for various retailers, jewelers, department stores, etc. Often the retailers name appears without the Haviland Company mark. M & CL was most likely the seller of your pieces. White china tableware like yours was manufactured in massive quantities by numerous manufacturers, often without any information. Dear John: I need help in order to dispose of approximately 2,500 collector plates. My husband purchased them planning to sell them at the flea market, but that idea fell by the wayside. He has since passed away, and now I am in a dilemma as to how to dispose of these plates. There are far too many of these plates to deal with on eBay or Craigslist, and more importantly, I do not wish to get involved in that scenario. I am hoping that somehow, some way, a person interested would purchase the whole lot. Some noted designers of these plates areNorman Rockwell, Red Skelton (all of his plates are signed by him), and other well-known names. Additionally, in this entire collection are pure copper Norman Rockwell plates. Would it be possible for you to steer me in the right direction as to how to dispose of this collection? Be advised that my husband purchased these plates from an elderly lady who needed money to satisfy her debts, and she was paid $8,000. I am very well aware that I will not be able to receive anywhere near that amount of money. I do not wish to leave these plates for someone else to worry about after my demise. The elderly ladys husband had passed away very suddenly, and it was his hope that he could sell these plates in order to supplement his retirement. After his death, she moved from Texas to Inverness, and this entire collection was moved to Inverness as well. The poor lady had no idea what to do with these plates. Your advice would be sincerely appreciated. J.L., Internet Dear J.L.: There is no specific collector interest in the collector plates you have. The secondary market is also at a low point as well and will likely not recover for a long, long time. If you end up with more than ten cents on the dollar, it will be a lucky day. I suggest you contact Replacements Ltd. in Greensboro, North Carolina at 800-REPLACE (7375223). Good luck. John Sikorski has been a professional in the antiques business for 30 years.

Halloween creep PAGE E8 Jane Weber PAGE E7 Real Estate Digest PAGE E3 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Average US 30-year mortgage rate at 3.97percent Associated PressWASHINGTON Average U.S. mortgage rates tumbled this week. The 30year loan hit its lowest level since June 2013 as Treasury bond yields marked new lows amid concern over global economic weakness. It was the fourth straight week of declines for mortgage rates, 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 dipped to 3.97percent from 4.12percent last week. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, fell to 3.18percent from 3.30percent. Mortgage rates often follow the yield on the 10year Treasury note. The 10-year note traded at 2.13percent Wednesday, down from 2.34percent a week earlier. It traded at 2.11percent Thursday morning. Bond yields rise when bond prices fall. Treasury yields have dropped sharply on expectations that the worlds economic sluggishness could force the Federal Reserve to delay interest rate increases. The deepening concern over the health of the world economy, and worries that global weakness could slow the U.S. economy and hurt corporate profits, played into the dizzying swoon Wednesday on Wall Street. Investors See RATES / Page E7 Saltcellars, butter pats appear similar in cut glass Dear John: I am hoping you can be of help with a couple of questions concerning china, which belonged to my great grandparents. The first picture is of three heavy glass saltcellars, which I know were in use before 1900. I suspect the china may be from about that same time period. In the picture with the glass saltcellars are some small china dishes about 27/8inches across, which I first assumed were saltcellars. However, I have never seen saltcellars this shallow, so I am wondering if they might have been meant for butter? My second question has to do with the logos stamped on the china. The small salt or butter pieces say Haviland France. The next photo shows one of the pieces, which is obviously the same pattern, with slightly raised decor around the scallops, yet the sauce dishes say M & C L France. Packed in the same box were dinner and luncheon plates which are a similar pattern but not identical, and they say Leonard Vienna. The cups and saucers are plain, with no scallops at all, and they are stamped Leonard Vienna. Every piece except the cups seems to also have an indented number or logo of some kind on the bottom. They are obviously parts of different sets, but I can find no clear information about any of these logos and am especially curious about different stamps on the pieces, which match exactly. By the way, all of the china pieces, especially the cups and saucers, are almost translucent. Anything you can tell me will be of interest. L.K., Beverly Hills Dear L.K.: Saltcellars were produced in a variety of materials and are a specific category of collector interest. The two you have appear to be made of cut glass in America during the late 19th to early 20th century. The two small china dishes are butter pats, sometimes called butter chips. The typical size runs from 11/2inches to 3inches in diameter. They are a category of collecting. Special to the ChronicleThese saltcellars are apparently made from cut glass and appear to be from the late 19th or early 20th century. Saltcellars are a category of collecting.

So is the calendar just one big holiday now? You know it really is, Schlegel laughed. People will take a tree that size and decorate it all year round for the seasons and different holidays.PEEPSTrick or Peeps! The sugary, marshmallow chicks once the delight of Easter alone have been reinvented for just about every occasion, including Halloween. One box of five green chicks comes with a plush, five-inch witch chick with a black hat. Orange pumpkin Peeps can be had as singles or in a 24-count tray, along with white ghostshaped Peeps. There are chocolate-covered Peeps and cats in the flavor of chocolate mousse, said Matt Pye, vice president of corporate affairs for Just Born, the company that owns Peeps and is based, where else, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 460 points in afternoon trading, all three U.S. stock indexes were in negative territory for the year, and the so-called fear index spiked. Mortgage 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. At 3.97percent, the 30-year rate is down from 4.53percent at the start of the year and at its lowest point since the week of June 20, 2013, when it was 3.93percent. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac sur veys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was unchanged from last week at 0.5 point. The fee for a 15-year mortgage also remained at 0.5 point. The average rate on a five-year adjustable-rate mortgage dropped to 2.92percent from 3.05 percent. The fee was steady at 0.5 point. For a one-year ARM, the average rate fell to 2.38percent from 2.42percent. The fee held at 0.4 point. RATESContinued from Page E6 Beggars tick proves prolific, pesky weed Beggars tick, Bidens alba,and Spanish Needles or Hairy Beggars tick, Bidens pilosa, are naturalized, not native plants. Although some people consider them a natural part of Florida, they apparently appeared after Europeans colonized Florida. Both range throughout Florida, west to Louisiana and north to the Carolinas. There are about 200 species of Bidens,most originally from Mexico, Central and/or South America. In the aster family, all Bidenshave erect, leafy stems that branch like a bush. The weeds are now pan-tropical having hitchhiked around the world to most countries with tropical to warm sub-tropical climates. Frost kills annual Beggars ticks and Spanish Needles, but thousands of seeds will quickly sprout in warm soil. The University of Florida reports a single plant can produce up to 1,205 seeds. Bidenscannot survive hard long freezes or months of snow cover. The genus does not spread in northern regions. Some species are perennial in the tropics. Bi means two, dents are teeth, and alba is white. Pilosa refers to the hairy undersides of the leaves. In Florida, no nurseries sell these weeds. Disturbed places, roadsides, fields and gardens can become monocultures infested by these prolific weeds. Neither B. albanorB. pilosahave been put on the prohibited, noxious ors invasive species lists. The composite flowers of these two pest plants have tiny, central, yellow disk flowers surrounded by four to eight petal-like, white ray flowers, very pretty and daisy-like. These weedy flowering plants bloom year-round in Central and South Florida. Only one seed is produced from each disk flower. The dry, black seed case is angular, four-sided, spindleshaped and topped by hooked projections called pappi. There are usually two pappi, but there can be See GARDEN/ Page E14 Jane WeberJANES GARDEN TRICKContinued from Page E9 A 5,000-square-foot home that a Missouri couple built along the Atlantic Ocean is shown in Flagler County.

Six months after the custom house was built along the Atlantic Ocean near Palm Coast, Mark and Brenda Voss learned its on the wrong lot in the gated Ocean Hammock community. Mark Voss told the Daytona Beach News Journaltheyre in total disbelief. The couple own 18 other residential lots in the community. They bought the lot in question in 2012 and hired Keystone Homes to build a threestory, 5,000-square-foot vacation rental. But it was instead built on the lot next door, which is owned by a North Carolina couple. The Vosses hired a lawyer, and Keystone vice president Robbie Richmond said the company is trying to negotiate a settlement between the lot owners and other parties.

UGLY SWEATERSThe folks at Festified.com are thinking, hey, why not Halloween? Theres a sweater dress there, a vest and leggings in orange stripes with pumpkins and bats. Mike Golomb, owner of Uglysweaterstore.com, is not only all about ugly sweaters for Christmas, Halloween and just about every other occasion but he sells only VINTAGE ugly sweaters that he buys by the 1,000-pound bale. For Halloween, theres a black sweatshirt that has a pumpkin exploding with fireworks, and a vest with smiley pumpkins and candy corn. Christmas is still our biggest holiday, but we have Easter sweaters, Halloween sweaters, sweaters for teachers with apples and pencils on them, said Golomb, in St. Louis. Weve seen increased sales in all the sweaters, especially any holiday. Golomb sells his ugly sweaters for $30 to $300 each. To us, the tackier the better, he said. Sometimes, I think Halloween sweaters are more tacky than the Christmas sweaters, with the candy corn and bats and everything.HALLOWEEN EGGSThe Easter tradition of decorating eggs in pretty pastels has morphed into spooky or playful takes for Halloween. Consider this pumpkin egg project that landed on a 2004 cover of Martha Stewart Living magazine: A centuries-old Ukrainian dying technique called pysanka was used to draw a design with wax. The eggs were then dipped in dye and held close to a flickering flame so the wax melts away to reveal the decoration. The little pumpkins were placed in a cozy nest of hay and twigs. Decorating eggs is most definitely not just for Easter anymore, said Hannah Milman, the editorial director of crafts and holidays at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. Iconic imagery like an egg, a tree, things that are very familiar to people, are very easy to translate into another holiday by changing the color, she said. The egg is an everyday object that everyone has. Everyone can buy one. I think its a love of the shape of natural things.HALLOWEEN TREESThese days, Christmas trees arent just for Christmas, or even Hanukkah for that matter. Look no further than the Halloween display at Bronners Christmas Wonderland, which touts itself as the worlds largest Christmas store. Founded by Wally Bronner in 1945, Halloween and the fall harvest mark the official start of the holiday season at the store in Frankenmuth, Michigan. The store has a 98,000-squarefoot sales floor nestled on 27 acres in the states Little Bavaria region. A religious man, Bronner wasnt one for ghouls and goblins, but Halloween is hard to get around these days. In the past few years weve gotten more and more Halloween ornaments and trims. People love Halloween. Its a tremendous holiday, said Sarah Schlegel, Bronners decorating coordinator. Her staff decorated a 4-and-a-halffoot tree with round orange pumpkin and white spiderweb ornaments.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014E9 E8SUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000JL2M 5569 W.

The blending of holiday traditions think Hanukkah bush now kicks off with Halloween in a variety of ways. Heres a peek at the holiday bleed:ELF ON THE SHELFThat little guy in the Santa suit comes with a rhyming book. Hes a stuffed scout elf that mysteriously moves around the house and cant be touched as he reports on whos naughty and whos nice between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. Kids are encouraged to name their elves. Well, meet the new Switch Witches of Halloween. Theyve got their own kit with a rhyming book and a black-hatted witch doll. Not-so-oddly, the rhyming structure is a la Twas the Night Before Christmas, and kids have a little space in the back where they can name their witch. The book, Switchcrafted: The Story of the Switch Witches of Halloween, instructs kids to leave the witch their candy hauls in exchange for a healthier toy. Unlike the elf, Switch Witches can be touched and theyre not spies, said cocreator Audrey Kinsman, a mom of two boys in Denver. Absolutely, she said when asked if the elf inspired the Halloween newcomer, which costs $29.99 and was launched a month ago. We have the elf and we love our elf. Kinsman has Celiac disease, and she has a 4-year-old with a severe milk protein allergy. Candy isnt all that fun, but Halloween is just as magical as Christmas, she said. There are no strict rules, she said of the witch. The Switch Witch goes to the grocery store and takes the kids to school and sits in our kitchen. My boys play with her and hang her from the light fixtures and wrap her onto my dogs collar. Its supposed to be more interactive.

The blending of holiday traditions think Hanukkah bush now kicks off with Halloween in a variety of ways. Heres a peek at the holiday bleed:ELF ON THE SHELFThat little guy in the Santa suit comes with a rhyming book. Hes a stuffed scout elf that mysteriously moves around the house and cant be touched as he reports on whos naughty and whos nice between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. Kids are encouraged to name their elves. Well, meet the new Switch Witches of Halloween. Theyve got their own kit with a rhyming book and a black-hatted witch doll. Not-so-oddly, the rhyming structure is a la Twas the Night Before Christmas, and kids have a little space in the back where they can name their witch. The book, Switchcrafted: The Story of the Switch Witches of Halloween, instructs kids to leave the witch their candy hauls in exchange for a healthier toy. Unlike the elf, Switch Witches can be touched and theyre not spies, said cocreator Audrey Kinsman, a mom of two boys in Denver. Absolutely, she said when asked if the elf inspired the Halloween newcomer, which costs $29.99 and was launched a month ago. We have the elf and we love our elf. Kinsman has Celiac disease, and she has a 4-year-old with a severe milk protein allergy. Candy isnt all that fun, but Halloween is just as magical as Christmas, she said. There are no strict rules, she said of the witch. The Switch Witch goes to the grocery store and takes the kids to school and sits in our kitchen. My boys play with her and hang her from the light fixtures and wrap her onto my dogs collar. Its supposed to be more interactive.

The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 460 points in afternoon trading, all three U.S. stock indexes were in negative territory for the year, and the so-called fear index spiked. Mortgage 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. At 3.97percent, the 30-year rate is down from 4.53percent at the start of the year and at its lowest point since the week of June 20, 2013, when it was 3.93percent. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac sur veys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was unchanged from last week at 0.5 point. The fee for a 15-year mortgage also remained at 0.5 point. The average rate on a five-year adjustable-rate mortgage dropped to 2.92percent from 3.05 percent. The fee was steady at 0.5 point. For a one-year ARM, the average rate fell to 2.38percent from 2.42percent. The fee held at 0.4 point.

Although some people consider them a natural part of Florida, they apparently appeared after Europeans colonized Florida. Both range throughout Florida, west to Louisiana and north to the Carolinas. There are about 200 species of Bidens,most originally from Mexico, Central and/or South America. In the aster family, all Bidenshave erect, leafy stems that branch like a bush. The weeds are now pan-tropical having hitchhiked around the world to most countries with tropical to warm sub-tropical climates. Frost kills annual Beggars ticks and Spanish Needles, but thousands of seeds will quickly sprout in warm soil. The University of Florida reports a single plant can produce up to 1,205 seeds. Bidenscannot survive hard long freezes or months of snow cover. The genus does not spread in northern regions. Some species are perennial in the tropics. Bi means two, dents are teeth, and alba is white. Pilosa refers to the hairy undersides of the leaves. In Florida, no nurseries sell these weeds. Disturbed places, roadsides, fields and gardens can become monocultures infested by these prolific weeds. Neither B. albanorB. pilosahave been put on the prohibited, noxious ors invasive species lists. The composite flowers of these two pest plants have tiny, central, yellow disk flowers surrounded by four to eight petal-like, white ray flowers, very pretty and daisy-like. These weedy flowering plants bloom year-round in Central and South Florida. Only one seed is produced from each disk flower.

Six months after the custom house was built along the Atlantic Ocean near Palm Coast, Mark and Brenda Voss learned its on the wrong lot in the gated Ocean Hammock community. Mark Voss told the Daytona Beach News Journaltheyre in total disbelief. The couple own 18 other residential lots in the community. They bought the lot in question in 2012 and hired Keystone Homes to build a threestory, 5,000-square-foot vacation rental. But it was instead built on the lot next door, which is owned by a North Carolina couple. The Vosses hired a lawyer, and Keystone vice president Robbie Richmond said the company is trying to negotiate a settlement between the lot owners and other parties.

The Haviland Company produced china in large quantities for various retailers, jewelers, department stores, etc. Often the retailers name appears without the Haviland Company mark. M & CL was most likely the seller of your pieces. White china tableware like yours was manufactured in massive quantities by numerous manufacturers, often without any information. Dear John: I need help in order to dispose of approximately 2,500 collector plates. My husband purchased them planning to sell them at the flea market, but that idea fell by the wayside. He has since passed away, and now I am in a dilemma as to how to dispose of these plates. There are far too many of these plates to deal with on eBay or Craigslist, and more importantly, I do not wish to get involved in that scenario. I am hoping that somehow, some way, a person interested would purchase the whole lot. Some noted designers of these plates areNorman Rockwell, Red Skelton (all of his plates are signed by him), and other well-known names. Additionally, in this entire collection are pure copper Norman Rockwell plates. Would it be possible for you to steer me in the right direction as to how to dispose of this collection? Be advised that my husband purchased these plates from an elderly lady who needed money to satisfy her debts, and she was paid $8,000. I am very well aware that I will not be able to receive anywhere near that amount of money. I do not wish to leave these plates for someone else to worry about after my demise. The elderly ladys husband had passed away very suddenly, and it was his hope that he could sell these plates in order to supplement his retirement. After his death, she moved from Texas to Inverness, and this entire collection was moved to Inverness as well. The poor lady had no idea what to do with these plates. Your advice would be sincerely appreciated. J.L., Internet Dear J.L.: There is no specific collector interest in the collector plates you have. The secondary market is also at a low point as well and will likely not recover for a long, long time. If you end up with more than ten cents on the dollar, it will be a lucky day. I suggest you contact Replacements Ltd. in Greensboro, North Carolina at 800-REPLACE (7375223). Good luck. John Sikorski has been a professional in the antiques business for 30 years.

Halloween creep PAGE E8 Jane Weber PAGE E7 Real Estate Digest PAGE E3 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Average US 30-year mortgage rate at 3.97percent Associated PressWASHINGTON Average U.S. mortgage rates tumbled this week. The 30year loan hit its lowest level since June 2013 as Treasury bond yields marked new lows amid concern over global economic weakness. It was the fourth straight week of declines for mortgage rates, 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 dipped to 3.97percent from 4.12percent last week. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, fell to 3.18percent from 3.30percent. Mortgage rates often follow the yield on the 10year Treasury note. The 10-year note traded at 2.13percent Wednesday, down from 2.34percent a week earlier. It traded at 2.11percent Thursday morning. Bond yields rise when bond prices fall. Treasury yields have dropped sharply on expectations that the worlds economic sluggishness could force the Federal Reserve to delay interest rate increases. The deepening concern over the health of the world economy, and worries that global weakness could slow the U.S. economy and hurt corporate profits, played into the dizzying swoon Wednesday on Wall Street. Investors See RATES / Page E7 Saltcellars, butter pats appear similar in cut glass Dear John: I am hoping you can be of help with a couple of questions concerning china, which belonged to my great grandparents. The first picture is of three heavy glass saltcellars, which I know were in use before 1900. I suspect the china may be from about that same time period. In the picture with the glass saltcellars are some small china dishes about 27/8inches across, which I first assumed were saltcellars. However, I have never seen saltcellars this shallow, so I am wondering if they might have been meant for butter? My second question has to do with the logos stamped on the china. The small salt or butter pieces say Haviland France. The next photo shows one of the pieces, which is obviously the same pattern, with slightly raised decor around the scallops, yet the sauce dishes say M & C L France. Packed in the same box were dinner and luncheon plates which are a similar pattern but not identical, and they say Leonard Vienna. The cups and saucers are plain, with no scallops at all, and they are stamped Leonard Vienna. Every piece except the cups seems to also have an indented number or logo of some kind on the bottom. They are obviously parts of different sets, but I can find no clear information about any of these logos and am especially curious about different stamps on the pieces, which match exactly. By the way, all of the china pieces, especially the cups and saucers, are almost translucent. Anything you can tell me will be of interest. L.K., Beverly Hills Dear L.K.: Saltcellars were produced in a variety of materials and are a specific category of collector interest. The two you have appear to be made of cut glass in America during the late 19th to early 20th century. The two small china dishes are butter pats, sometimes called butter chips. The typical size runs from 11/2inches to 3inches in diameter. They are a category of collecting. Special to the ChronicleThese saltcellars are apparently made from cut glass and appear to be from the late 19th or early 20th century. Saltcellars are a category of collecting.

lesser powered machine cost 20 years ago, Minick says. A portable generator, which runs on gasoline, costs about half that.THE BIGGER PICTUREOf course, buying a generator is just one piece of being ready for a power outage, Collier notes. Gassing up your car is crucial in storm preparedness, since it can provide everything from heat and a radio to a place to charge your phone when power goes out. Having modern flashlights ones with LED lights and lithium batteries is another priority, Collier says. They use little energy and are powered by batteries that last for years. bucks for the security of having power is worth it, Collier says. Portable generators, on the other hand, can be powerful enough to do the trick. But they have to be started manually, and you must have gasoline on hand before any storm. You cant have the gasoline so long that it becomes unusable: Collier says gasoline goes stale after about a month. In addition, turning on a portable generator often requires several steps, which isnt necessarily easy in stormy, dark conditions. There are safety concerns, too. Because they are powered by gasoline, portable generators emit carbon monoxide, so they must be set up away from the home and windows.HOW MUCH POWEROnce youve decided what kind of generator to get, you need to determine how powerful it should be. Do you want to just keep the fridge and a few lights running, for instance, or do you want to light up the whole house? Russ Minick, vice president of the countrys largest home-generator manufacturer, Generac, recommends buying a generator with at least 5,000 watts, which he says is the minimum needed to power just a refrigerator and lights. Running air conditioning or heat requires more powerful units, he says. Generac has a sizing calculator on its website, generac.com, to help people decide how powerful a unit they want. The bigger the generator, the more it costs. Generac recently debuted a baseline built-in generator for less than $2,000 a far cry from the $8,000 aCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014E5 E12SUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE www.FloridaSho wcasePr operties.com SERVING ALL OF CITRUS COUNTY 000JLBF PINE RIDGE 1481 W.

Choosing the right generator Associated PressAs storms have become more severe in many parts of the country and power outages more frequent, home generators have gone from luxury items to mainstream ones. Prices have come down, thanks to growing demand and cheaper technology. But the idea of buying and installing one can still be daunting, mainly because there are so many variables to consider. Much depends on how much you want the generator to do. A look at some generator basics:BUILT-IN OR PORTABLEThe biggest question is whether to buy a built-in generator, which has to be professionally installed and runs on natural gas, or a portable unit, which is cheaper and runs on gasoline. The built-in kicks in automatically in a power outage; the portable has to be started manually. Built-in generators look similar to air conditioners, usually sitting on the side of a house. They are more expensive than portables; installation could run $1,500-plus. But they have one big advantage, says Ken Collier, editor-in-chief at The Family Handyman: Once a built-in generator is put in place, you dont have to touch it again. They are a great choice for people for whom spending a few thousand Agents achieve production milestones ERA American Realty & Investments is proud to announce the latest production levels achieved by its agents year to date.

as many as six. Mature seeds readily detach and cling to clothing, fur and feathers. They germinate well and quickly on the ground as soon as soil temperatures are suitable in spring or between frosts. Dry seeds can remain viable for several years. The University of Florida website has an information publication, No.SP37, about Bidens at edis.ifas.ufl/fw005. It includes pictures. It outlines how to control the weeds. If you have time, patience and diligence, hand-pull plants and seedlings regularly as part of your routine garden maintenance. Those along grassy roadsides and in lawns can be mowed frequently. UF suggests spraying with a broadleaf herbicide such as 2,4-D, dicambra, triclopyr or glyphosate. These are systemic herbicides without soil activity, meaning they will not control sprouting seedlings. Since the thousands of seeds germinate from spring right through to mid-winter, a pre-emergent herbicide can be used. UF recommends Aminopyralid herbicide (sold commercially as Milestone) that has both pre-emergent and post-emergent activity and provides residual control for about four months after application. Landscape supply warehouses may carry it, or you can hire a licensed, professional pest control company. Always read and follow the label directions. The naming within this genus is chaotic. Both common names and the botanical names are used as synonyms for each other. Some Bidenswere formerly thought to be Cosmos, a related aster. By any name, they contain nectar that attracts honeybees and butterflies. The leaves are a host plant for moth and butterfly caterpillars, including the Dainty Sulphur butterfly larva.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant.

Its just that in summer, when the plants go dormant, the plant has nothing at all to show no leaves or flowers. Hardy cyclamens are as easy to grow as florists cyclamens and need pretty much the same conditions: perfectly drained soil and shallow planting. Tubers should sit with their tops just slightly below soil level. My plants have flowered indoors at east windows and outdoors on the shaded, north side of the house.GETTING STARTEDHardy cyclamens are generally available from specialist nurseries (such as Sunfarms, www.sunfarm.com), but once you have some plants, new ones are easy enough to propagate. Sometime after bloom, surely while the plants are dormant, youll note seed capsules, each about the size of a small marble, lying on the soil surface. These seed capsules, like the flowers, are still tethered to the soil, this time by stalks now coiled like springs. The seeds would likely selfsow, but to multiply your holdings more deliberately, pop the seeds out of the dry capsules. Books and seed catalogs offer elaborate instructions for germinating cyclamen seeds, detailing planting depth as well as sequential requirements for both warm and cool temperatures. Ive followed such directives and gotten the seeds to germinate. Then again, Ive also just sowed the seeds shallowly in pots, kept the soil moist and waited eventually they seem to germinate no matter what you do. What is important is to keep the young seedlings growing continuously through their first year. Theyre not old enough for their summer dormancy until their second year, at which time they generally start to flower.

See DIGEST / Page E4 Cyclamen kin are dainty but hardy LEEREICH Associated PressFor the past few weeks, dainty pink or white butterflies have been hovering above the bare soil in some of my clay flowerpots. Theyre not really butterflies, actually: They are cyclamen blossoms held aloft on thin flower stalks. These are not the cyclamens you typically find offered in florist shops, those plants with bold flowers and lush foliage. My cyclamens are among the few species of so-called hardy cyclamens (Cyclamen hederifolium, for example). They differ from florists cyclamens not only in their diminutive leaves and flowers but also in their ability to live outdoors year round, even in cold climates. My cyclamen plants are still leafless, the flowers being their first sign of life as they awaken from their summer dormancy. These blossoms will hover in place for weeks to come.THE SHOW GOES ONEven after the blossoms finally fade and drop, the show will not be over. Soon to begin is the leafy show. The leaves are heart-shaped, but rounded rather than pointed at the end, with silvery mottling painted over the dark green background. The silvery design differs from one plant to the next. The leaves last for weeks, perhaps all winter if temperatures are not too frigid. So theres really no time of year LEE REICH/Associated PressThe dainty flowers of hardy cyclamensgrowing in a pot in New Paltz, New York. GARDENContinued from Page E7

strings of white holiday lights, or connect three or four jugs with one long string of lights. On a flat, clean side of each jug, draw a ghost face. (http://www.isavea2z. com/easy-halloween-craftideas-milk-jug-ghosts) Take discount-store glow sticks to a party-supplies store and ask the clerk to insert them into yellow or white balloons before inflating the balloons with helium. Or buy a small helium tank; they range from $40 to $50 at party stores. Use a permanent black marker to draw spooky faces on the balloons. Stop there or go one step further and cover each balloon with cheesecloth. It will make them glow, says Ross, who recommends lining a sidewalk or front porch with these.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014E15 E2SUNDAY, OCTOBER19, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 2421 N.

MLS #713649 $119,900 NEW LISTING Light up Halloween night with homemade luminaries JENNIFERFORKER Associated PressThis Halloween, lighten things up with luminaries. There are lots of quick, do-it-yourself projects to make the flickering lights that welcome partiers or trick-or-treaters. Besides their welcoming glow, luminaries can add sophistication or fun to a sidewalk, staircase, fireplace mantel or front stoop, says Eddie Ross, East Coast design editor for Better Homes and Gardens. And you can make them from a variety of everyday objects, from milk jugs to glass jars to paper bags. Ross has a slew of illuminating ideas at bhg.com, and there are more at Pinterest.com/Halloween and other websites. Just insert one or more batteryoperated votives or a string of 25 holiday lights into any of these DIY projects:SOPHISTICATED Drill holes any size into a real or fabricated gourd or pumpkin. Use patterns or lines, or try monogramming your initial. For a pumpkin, cut an access hole at the bottom and clean out the goo from there. Ross recommends using a white or sugar pumpkin. The latter are used for baking; grocery stores sell them. Drizzle fake blood down the outside of a clear-glass cylinder, then wrap it with parchment paper and secure with double-stick tape. It looks like something you see when youre putting slides under a microscope, says Ross. Its sophisticated and pretty but creepy, too. Remove labels from empty steel cans and punch holes in them with an awl and hammer, either randomly or with a design. From the blog Making Lemonade: Wrap a glass vase in vellum or freezer paper, both of which are translucent; cut the paper to fit the vase. Add stickers to the unpatterned side of the vellum or the waxy side of the freezer paper, then rewrap and tape the paper sticker side on the inside to the vase with clear tape.
