But the sketchy details of how such quarantines will be handled drew sharp criticism from humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders while infectious disease experts said many of the logistics about enforcement are likely still up in the air. Kaci Hickox, a Doctors Without Borders nurse, remained isolated at a hospital Saturday, a day after she returned to the U.S. and the governors of New York, New Jersey and Illinois announced mandatory 21-day quarantines for arriving travelers who had contact with Ebola patients in West Africa.

Last week, for the eighth straight year, Ferris Farms in Floral City harvested the first commercial flat of strawberries in the state of Florida. The farm, which also produces citrus, blueberries and beef, is much smaller than its Plant City counterparts, which dominate Florida strawberry production. So getting to market first is a point of pride for the crew at Ferris, according STEVE LASKO/For the ChronicleDudley Calfee, general manager of Ferris Farms, walks through and inspects the strawberry plants just two days after the first harvest.

Dog fighting ring discoveredBARTOW Dozens of dogs and more than 200 cats were involved in two separate cases of alleged animal cruelty in Florida this week. The Polk County Sheriffs Office said a Crime Stoppers tip led them Wednesday to discover a dog fighting ring being run out of a former Bartow bar. The Ledger reported that many of the 69 dogs found at the bar and at a suspects home had scars and recent wounds from fights. Authorities say many of the dogs may be euthanized.Disney World to remove Sorcerers Hat displayLAKE BUENA VISA The sorcerers hat is coming down at Disneys Hollywood Studios in Central Florida. Disney officials said the giant Blue sorcerers hat display will be replaced in 2015. The hat greeted fans who entered the park and was inspired by a story in the classic 1940 Disney film Fantasia, in which sorcerer apprentice Mickey Mouse steals the hat and disaster ensues. Disney unveiled the hat in 2001 as the icon for the park in honor of the 100th anniversary of Walt Disneys birthday. Officials praise shark repellent developed in KeysKEY WEST Federal officials are praising a shark repellent developed at the Florida Keys Community College. The project was funded by a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration grant. In a recent report to Congress, NOAA officials highlighted the repellent among efforts in coastal communities to reduce the numbers of sharks caught in commercial seafood harvests. The Key West Citizen reported that the first batch of the repellent caused such a stench on the colleges Key West campus that it was moved to a storage locker several miles away. That batch was made from rotting shark carcasses, and it was tended by a research assistant with no sense of smell.A2SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL/STATE 000JFTD Allen Ridge Professional Village 525 North Dacie Point, Lecanto, Florida 34461 www.dermatologyonline.com To schedule your free skin cancer examination, please call the staff at Suncoast Dermatology and Skin Surgery Center at 746-2200.

Page A3SUNDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerA local refuge is flourishing with community support. Covenant Childrens Home (CCH), located near Dunnellon, is functioning at near capacity. This home has been servicing kids since 2009 and has never been shut down. We have had some periods where we have had very few kids or no kids, but we have always been in operation, said Tom McMurray, interim executive director of CCH. In 2013, we began an association with Kids Central Inc. Since that time, we have pretty much stayed full. CCH is a nonprofit corporation in partnership with Kids Central Inc. that supplies long-term care to children who have been relocated from their biological families and need a place to identify as home. They are good kids. Things just have happened in their life that is no fault of their own, said Gary Mock, board of directors treasurer. We are here to catch them and help them move on with their lives. Currently, the house located on 20 wooded acres is home to seven kids, both boys and girls, with house parents Jody and Debbie Davis. We are licensed to hold eight kids, McMurray said. However, we have one set of house parents and six or seven kids at a time. For us to expand, we need some additional help. Right now we are a co-ed operation, which makes things difficult, he continued. We are in the early stages of building a home, which we think we can do within two years. The family of nine does just that resides as a family unit. We are a family, McMurray said. If you were here in the evenings, you would see what every other family does sitting around the table, doing homework, eating dinner together, etc. We try to be as normal as we can be. The faith-based organization has one request. Help us love and care for our kids by donating, volunteering and praying for us, McMurray concluded. For more information, call 352-489-2565 or visit cchfl.org.

Beverly Hills resident Drucella Clausen welcomed the sight of volunteers Saturday as they spruced up her yard for the USA Weekend Make a Difference Day. This is the first year that I havent been able to do my own outside work, she said. It is wonderful that we have people like this in our community. They cleaned her flower beds, trimmed her trees, cleaned her windows and then spread the 10 bags of mulch that Clausen had bought. Clausen said they made a difference in her life. And thats exactly why Nature Coast Volunteer Center and Retired and Senior Volunteer Program chose this activity for their annual Make a Difference Day project. We are trying to make a difference in the lives of our seniors, said Laurie Diestler, supervisor of the Nature Coast Volunteer Center.It may not be seen by everyone as a giant program but it is making a difference to that person. It is important that our seniors live independently as long as they can. If they are comfortable and the worry of their lawn is eliminated it helps ensure that. Twenty volunteers made a difference at seven homes Saturday. The seniors in our community really appreciate the help of our volunteers, Diestler said. Also Saturday, the U.S. Postal Service Day of Caring on Make a Difference Day Food Drive collected nonperishable food donations for Citrus United Basket, Salvation Army, Daystar, Family Resource Center, We Care Food Pantry, Beverly Hills Community Church and Floral City Churches. United Way of Citrus County and residents walked 11 miles for its National Day of Caring. CEO Amy Meek said it was a day of raising awareness and empathy for what other people endure daily to make positive alterations to their life.Contact Chronicle education reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-563-5660, ext. 1334, or eworthington@chronicle online.com.

Last day to request mail ballots approaching StateBRIEFS Florida womans orchids donated to SmithsonianJACKSONVILLE A Florida womans collection of orchids are finding a new home at the Smithsonian Institution. Helen Hoffman tended to approximately 100 orchids in a greenhouse attached to her Jacksonville home. She told The Florida Times-Union that shes donating the collection because she cant take care of it now that shes in her 80s. She also is selling her home. Two orchid specialists from the Smithsonians gardens division drove to Hoffmans home this week with a moving truck to pack up the plants. Hoffman traces her orchid obsession to a dealer who refused to sell to her because she didnt know enough about how to care for them. She soon joined a local orchid society. Hoffman set aside a few of the orchids to take to her new retirement home.Immokalee groups fair food label debutsFOR MYERS The South Floridabased farmworker group the Coalition of Immokalee Workers has a new feather in its cap: the first ever national fair food label. The label was unveiled Friday and is similar to the cruelty-free and fair trade stamps on products like cattle to coffee. The fair food brands tomatoes picked by workers who are paid a premium and have basic guaranteed rights in the field. The Fort Myers News Press reported Saturday the label originated with the Coalitions campaign for Fair Food. The Coalition got its start two decades ago advocating to raise farmworker wages by a penny per pound of produce picked, and to reduce sexual harassment, and other labor violations and crimes. The coalition is the focus of a new documentary produced by Eva Longoria.From wire reports

Actor Bruce Willis, introducing Hancock at Friday nights concert, offered a glance at the future of jazz as he brought out 11-year-old Indonesian piano prodigy Joey Alexander to play a solo rendition of Thelonious Monks Round Midnight. When I was 8 years old, you heard me playing. You told me that you believed in me and that was the day I decided to dedicate my childhood to jazz, Alexander told Hancock, who was standing alongside him. After Alexander got a standing ovation, Hancock enthused, Wasnt it amazing? ... Hes taken my job away from me. Alexander will be releasing his debut recording for the Harlem-based indie Motema label next year. Hancock took the stage earlier to join an all-star combo that paid tribute to 93-year-old trumpeter Clark Terry with a performance of his tune Gingerbread Boy. The Great Night In Harlem concert raised funds for the JFA, which provides emergency financial assistance and free medical care to musicians facing illness, hunger or eviction. Questlove, of The Roots, took the stage to honor Earth, Wind & Fire founder Maurice White, saying the band changed the shape of R&B to come. Willis also showed his musical chops when he sang and played harmonica teaming with singerguitarist Susan Tedeschi on Got Love If You Want It.NBCUniversal settles with unpaid internsNEW YORK Nearly 9,000 unpaid interns stand to benefit from a $6.4 million settlement with NBCUniversal over back wages. Unpaid interns who worked on Saturday Night Live and other shows brought a class action suit last July in Manhattan federal court claiming NBCUniversal violated the law by classifying them as non-employee interns and paid them nothing or less than minimum wage, when they were actually doing employee work. NBCUniversal said in court documents that even though its settling the suit, it denies the allegations and doesnt admit any wrongdoing. The average amount that class-action members of the suit will receive is $505 before taxes, although the main plaintiffs will receive more.

Maj. Gen. Jeff Burton said the handful of military members could see fines, demotions or forced retirements when an investigation is complete. He said he knows who let the women and crew onto Camp Williams. A separate investigation shows a state police officer participating in the shoot was on duty at the time. Another officer is seen in uniform but wasnt on the clock. Department of Public Safety spokesman Doug McCleve also said three state-owned guns were used in the unsanctioned shoot.

Jack Bruce, bassist of 60s band Cream dies at 71 Associated PressLONDON British musician Jack Bruce, best known as the bass player and vocalist of the power blues trio Cream, died Saturday at his home, his family and publicist said. He was 71. Bruce was one of the top musicians of the late 1960s, when Cream played its unique psychedelic blues tunes to packed houses in England and the United States. The band widely cited as the original supergroup were known for hits such as I Feel Free and Sunshine of Your Love, which featured Eric Claptons innovative guitar riffs, and Bruces vocals and roaring bas, backed by Ginger Bakers explosive drumming. Bruce enjoyed a long solo career after that, and in 2005 he reunited with former Cream bandmates for concerts in London and New York City. Publicist Claire Singers said Saturday Bruce died at his home in Suffolk, England. A statement released by his family said the world of music will be a poorer place without him but he lives on in his music and forever in our hearts. It is with great sadness that we, Jacks family, announce the passing of our beloved Jack: husband, father, granddad, and all round legend, the statement said. Cream sold 35 million albums in just over two years and the band was awarded the worlds first ever platinum disc for their double album Wheels of Fire. Bruce wrote and sang most of the bands signature songs. The band started out playing traditional blues tunes, but added a psychedelic tinge that brought still more popularity at the height of the flower-power era. But they broke up with little warning, at the height of their commercial success. Clapton wrote in his 2007 autobiography that the band lost its direction musically and that any sense of unity had disappeared. We were also suffering from an inability to get along, he said. We would just run away from one another. We never socialized together and never really shared ideas anymore. Bruce went on to record the first of his solo albums, Songs For a Tailor. He also fronted many of his own bands. He was known for mixing rock, jazz and classical formats, and his songs were covered by many artists including Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie and Ella Fitzgerald. Bruce returned to the studio around 2000 to record his solo album Shadows in the Air, which hit No. 5 on the British jazz and blues chart. Bruce was born to musical parents in Glasgow, Scotland, on May 14, 1943. His parents travelled extensively in Canada and the U.S., and the young Bruce attended 14 different schools. He finished his formal education at Bellahouston Academy and the Royal Scottish Academy of Music, to which he won a scholarship for cello and composition. He left Scotland at the age of 16 and in 1962 joined his first important band, the influential Alexis Korners Blues Inc., in London. The band featured drummer Charlie Watts, who later joined the Rolling Stones. Bruce was playing and touring with his Big Blues Band until recently. In 2012 he played in Cuba, and performed in London at the famed bar Ronnie Scotts. His 14th solo album, Silver Rails, was released earlier this year. He is survived by his wife, Margrit, five children and a granddaughter. Funeral arrangements werent immediately announced. Associated PressBritish musician Jack Bruce performs Dec. 7, 2008, at the Zildjian Drummers Achievement Awards at the Shepherds Bush Empire in London. Bruce, best known as the bassist from the 1960s group Cream, has died.

Shady View Pt. Floral City (352) 613-2518 Richard Rudman Boat Covers Marine Upholstery Boat Tops 000J78Z to general manager Dudley Calfee. We plant a little bit earlier than Plant City, said Calfee. But I think more than anything it has to do with our location. The rich hammock soil that Dr. Ferris found here (Duval Island) was great for growing citrus trees and is good for growing strawberries, too, he said. I think the island environment and ecosystem makes things a little bit kinder to us up here. In addition to the growing conditions, Calfee and his staff have tapped into sound environmental practices and current agriculture research to enhance production. One result is the Ferris Berry, which he describes as sweeter with a much more aromatic strawberry flavor. Youll never taste a better strawberry, he said. About 10 to 12 percent of the berries are sold locally with the rest being shipped up North. In March, the Ferris Berry is the star of annual Floral City Strawberry Festival. That first flat of strawberries also marked the beginning of the farms busy season, from now into spring when the blueberries take over. Once the berries start, its a sevenday-a-week operation, he said. We work 5 to 9, not 9 to 5. Unlike many other fruits, strawberries go from field to consumer without processing, but with special attention to packaging and temperature control. For Floral City, the start of strawberry season means the annual reopening of Ferris Groves roadside retail store. The U.S. 41 landmark started more than 75 years ago as a fruit stand under a tent selling freshsqueezed orange juice. In addition to the Floral City location, Ferris built others, including an elaborate store on U.S. 19 in Crystal River. It has since been demolished and the site redeveloped. Now the Floral City store, which opens Monday, carries on the legacy. Under new store manager Kim Seal, it still features fresh-squeezed orange juice, seasonal fruit, jam and jellies, pecans, soaps, cheese, butter, sauces, local honey and citrusthemed gifts. The store also ships citrus, has gift baskets available and will soon have Ferris beef. And then there are the strawberry products; pies, tarts, ice cream and their famous fresh strawberry milkshakes, especially popular with people coming in off the Withlacoochee State Trail. A paved pathway connects the store to the trail and provides picnic tables. Seal, a longtime local resident, said the store hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 Sunday. Calfee said the store has a deep connection to historic Floral City, which he describes as a special community with its own unique spirit.

This is not a situation I would wish on anyone, and I am scared for those who will follow me, Hickox wrote in a column for the newspaper. Health officials said preliminary tests for Ebola came back negative for Hickox, but Newark University Hospital would not say if she would be released for the balance of the quarantine period or remain in the hospital. Doctors Without Borders executive director Sophie Delaunay complained about the notable lack of clarity from state officials about the quarantine policies. We are attempting to clarify the details of the protocols with each states departments of health to gain a full understanding of their requirements and implications, she said in a statement. The aid organization said Hickox has not been issued an order of quarantine specifying how long she must be isolated and is being kept in an unheated tent. It urged the fair and reasonable treatment of health workers fighting the Ebola outbreak. Indeed, health officials in all three states with quarantine policies did not return messages Saturday from The Associated Press seeking details about enforcement. Dr. Irwin Redlener, a Columbia University professor and director of the New York-based Director National Center for Disaster Preparedness, said the logistics of such a policy are a problem. The challenge now is how you translate this quarantine plan to operational protocol, said Redlener, who has been involved in discussions with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on who should be under home quarantine and how to monitor them. That could involve case managers who keep an eye on homebound people, Redlener said. Cuomo and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Friday imposed a quarantine of 21 days the incubation period of the deadly virus on travelers who have had contact with Ebola patients in the countries ravaged by the virus.

MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerHardly a county commission meeting goes by that officials dont get an earful from residents whose main worry is the dogs and cats at the Citrus County Animal Shelter. This Tuesday, those concernstake center stage as the commission will hear a detailed presentation about the shelter, its current problems, and two possible solutions. New Animal Control Director Kevin Mallory will suggest the county either renovate the shelter on Airport Road at a cost of about $784,000 over three years or take up the offer from Corrections Corporation of America for a new $2.8 million shelter near the county jail in Lecanto. The county commission meeting starts at 1 p.m. The animal shelter presentation is scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m. Mallorys presentation is loaded with statistics from the past year, including: The shelter housed 5,347 dogs, cats and other animals between Oct. 1, 2013, and Sept. 30, 2014. Of those, 2,051 were impounded strays and 1,587 were surrendered by their owners. In the same period, not including September, about 3,000 animals were either adopted or reclaimed by their owners. However, 1,712 animals were euthanized 85 percent of those were cats. There are six kennel technicians, or about four a day during a seven-day work week. National animal shelter standards call for technicians to spend 15 minutes per animal each day for basic feeding and kennel cleaning. In order to meet the standard based on the average number of animals at the shelter, the county should hire two additional kennel technicians. The report suggests increasing license fees to cover the costs of the new employees. Mallorys report lists a number of improvements needed at the shelter, including a new roof, air conditioning, a new medical building, relocating the parking lot, and a pole barn for livestock and converting the old administration building into a cat adoption center. While renovating the current shelter is less expensive, the report noted several areas of concern, including housing the animals while the shelter is being renovated. The Lecanto site, on the other hand, is a central location easily accessible by the public. Other items on Tuesdays agenda include: Attorney Dorothy Green of Orlando is expected to present her investigative report of former County Administrator Brad Thorpes allegations of work force harassment against Commissioner Scott Adams. The county had not yet received the report as of Friday. The presentation is under commission Chairman John JJ Kenneys agenda. A recommendation, on the consent agenda, to lease 34.5 acres of county land on County Road 491 to the Filter Youth Development Inc., which proposes to build a youth educational facility, including classrooms and a dirt bike track. The lease would be for $1 a year. A 2 p.m. public hearing on an ordinance to reduce the maximum grass height from 18 inches to 12 inches. The ordinance is designed to stop owners of vacant homes in developed communities such as Beverly Hills from allowing lawns to grow unsightly. A 5:15 p.m. public hearing on a lease-topurchase plan to replace emergency services radio equipment. While the purchase is for $6.2 million, documents that accompanied the agenda showed a 10-year lease with annual payments of $721,754. Discussion whether to allow Good Fellas Roll Off Waste Disposal Inc. to take garbage to the Heart of Florida landfill in Sumter County. Commissioner Scott Adams co-owns both companies, and he has abstained when the issue has come up. Good Fellas has the garbage-hauling contract with the Citrus County School District.

The Oviedo Challenge League cheerleader also has Down syndrome. She is one of a small but growing number of teens with Down syndrome who have won the title in recent years. The trend has coincided with the popularity of the character Becky on FOXs Glee, a sometimes devious teen with Down syndrome who made her fictional schools cheerleading squad and ran for prom queen.

While Gudi Davis was on the ground communicating with them with a hand radio, a Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputy noticed the plane in distress and called for emergency backup. They were doing the first flight in this aircraft, Gudi Davis said. Mr. Massey had just purchased the plane. He had not flown since 1987. But he wants to fly again. When they were coming in to land, they lowered the landing gear, she continued. Usually you get three green lights one for the left wheel, one for the right wheel and one for the nose. But they only got two. Then when they pulled the throttle back, they got a warning horn that they are not all three down. After 20 minutes of trying to find a way to lower the landing gear, the pilots decided they had to land the plane with skill and hope. I said a quick prayer, Lord help us, Massey said. I just knew we were going to be OK. Mr. Davis has more credentials then anyone I know. I never broke a sweat. Gudi Davis said they went through the emergency checklist and then waited for Citrus County Sheriffs Office Fire Rescue and Nature Coast EMS to arrive before attempting the belly landing. Massey said the aircraft slid and filled with a little smoke, but that he exited with only a scratch on his right arm. I told my girlfriend this morning that I felt good today about this flight, he chuckled. He is unsure of the newly purchased planes future, but plans to continue his lessons. This is the best airport in the nation. Citrus County should be proud of this jewel, Massey said. I came down here from Georgia just to fly with Tom Davis. And I met another guy from Tennessee that does the same.

Lava creeps toward road on Big IslandHONOLULU A growing lava stream threatening homes and inching closer to a rural road on Hawaiis Big Island oozed forward in fits and starts this week, frustrating some residents but giving officials a window of time to prepare. The narrow, leading edge of the lava flow is just 250 yards from the one-lane country road, which has been closed. Crews are working on an alternate route for remote communities in the Puna district in case the lava crosses a major thoroughfare. The lava has sped up recently, advancing nearly 460 yards from Thursday morning to Friday, but it has since slowed again, officials said. The flows fitful nature is taking a toll on some Big Island residents, who got a brief reprieve from the advancing molten stream only to have to raise their guard again. This stop-and-go its going to be very frustrating for our residents, said Darryl Oliveira, director of Hawaii County Civil Defense. It raises the anxiety level. It raises the concern. On the other hand, the sporadic suspensions in activity gave emergency crews time to work on building another road and deal with a recent tropical storm that swept by the island, Oliveira said. Crews near the leading edge have been wrapping power poles with concrete rings as a layer of protection from the lavas heat. The recent acceleration came when the lava reached a gully, allowing it to move more efficiently like rain in a gutter, Oliveira said. No evacuations have been ordered, and the residents of a home that is nearest to the flow already have left voluntarily. Hawaii County Civil Defense crews went door-todoor Saturday to about a dozen homes to find out how many people might need shelter if the eruption continues, and to find any obstacles like abandoned cars or hazards that could be in the lavas path. Oliveira said he would give residents three to five days notice before an evacuation order, and he stressed that the community is not yet at that point.Two being held in police slayingsSACRAMENTO, Calif. More than 100 law enforcement officers from across Northern California responded without being asked after hearing that one of their own had been killed at the start of a shooting rampage, a sheriffs spokeswoman said Saturday. Federal, state and local officers eventually swarmed six separate crime scenes across a 30-mile region encompassing two counties, Placer County sheriffs spokeswoman Dena Erwin said. It was an amazing response, Erwin said. We dont call for those people, they just show up on their own because they know a fellow officer has been shot. The officers from the state Department of Justice, FBI, U.S. Department of Homeland Security and other agencies will be questioned as part of the complex investigation into the attack on Friday that ended after two deputies were dead and two other victims were wounded. Two suspects were questioned for hours as authorities sought a motive for the shootings that began when Sacramento County sheriffs Deputy Danny Oliver, 47, was shot in the forehead with an assault rifle at close range as he checked out a suspicious car in a motel parking lot. Police suspect the shooter was 34-year-old Marcelo Marquez of Salt Lake City, who was being held on suspicion of two counts of murder, two counts of attempted murder and two counts of carjacking. A woman with him, 38-yearold Janelle Marquez Monroy, was in custody on suspicion of attempted murder and two counts of carjacking.From wire reports Islamic extremists on rise in GermanyBERLIN The number of Islamic extremists in Germany is growing rapidly, the head of the countrys domestic intelligence agency said Saturday. The agency estimates some 6,300 people in Germany are adherents of an ultraconservative strain of Islam known as Salafism, Hans-Georg Maassen told public broadcaster rbbInforadio. In Germany, all Salafis are considered Islamic extremists and on the radar of the security services, though other groups are also monitored if they are determined to be a threat. Maassen said the number of Salafis could rise to 7,000 by the end of the year, compared to about 3,800 three years ago. Extremist strands of Islam provide disaffected young people with a sense of belonging and purpose that allows them to hope, he said. Authorities have spoken of at least 450 Islamic extremists who have traveled from Germany to join extremists groups fighting in Syria and Iraq. German weekly Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung reported Saturday that the actual figure could be far higher. Citing unnamed security officials, the newspaper claimed German authorities calculate as many as 1,800 extremists may have left the country to join jihadi groups. An Interior Ministry official told The Associated Press that 450 remains the number Germanys security agencies are working with, but acknowledged there was an unknown dark figure of people the authorities might not yet be aware of. Associated PressMARIUPOL, Ukraine Ukraine braced for decisive parliamentary elections Saturday against the backdrop of unrest in eastern regions roiled by conflict between government troops and pro-Russian separatist forces. Campaigning material was being taken down across the country in line with election laws ahead of a vote Sunday that pollsters say will be dominated by President Petro Poroshenkos party. Parliament is seen changing composition completely with the former ruling party of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych, who was ousted by a street revolt in February, set to disappear from the legislature. Speaking in a televised address Saturday, Poroshenko said the election would lead to a full reset of power and enable the formation of a reformminded legislature. Parties expected to enter into parliament all broadly share a pro-Western line and are united in their calls to tackle rampant corruption and undertake root-and-branch economic reforms. Skepticism remains strong toward a political elite that many Ukrainians continue to see as selfserving. Shelling has continued in eastern Ukraine despite a truce being called early September, and in areas near the main focus of fighting the mood was subdued and turnout expected to be low. The east is where Yanukovych drew most of his support, and one worry is that the voice of the population in this region could go unheard. The mood is particularly tense in Volnovakha, which is 60 kilometers inland from Mariupol and on the very fringes of the rebel front. District election commission head Anna Yeremchenko said election workers were staying away out of fear, putting the vote at risk. On Saturday afternoon, the sound of artillery fire falling near the town could be heard for at least 30 minutes. Vyacheslav Kryazh, a deputy commander of the pro-government Kiev-2 battalion, said the chairwoman of an election commission in the area was abducted Saturday. Kryazh said his men later tracked down the kidnapper and detained him. Authorities have also received information that rebels will seek to provoke unrest on the election day, said Viktor Chelovan, who supervises the battalions operating under the Interior Ministry. They will use all means at their disposal to either derail the vote in the Donetsk or Luhansk regions or to cast a shadow over the legitimacy of the election, he said.NATION/WORLDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014 A13 864 NE 5th Street, Crystal River 000JILG 2014 2014 2014 2014 M-F 8:30am 7pm Sat 8:30am 5pm Thank You Pat Sparkman ...over 26 years in 3-dimensional, high-resolution breast scanning. 471 N.

Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said Saturday the reunion will have to wait until the dog is released Nov. 1 from a quarantine period. Jenkins said officials must make sure the dog is virus-free and cannot infect others. Pham is now immune. Jenkins said veterinarians are concerned that if Pham visits the dog, it might affect Bentleys behavior and make it harder to monitor for potential symptoms.Officers suspected of sharing nude photosMARTINEZ, Calif. A California Highway Patrol officer suspected of stealing nude and racy photos from the cellphones of women arrested on drunken driving charges sent the pictures to at least two fellow officers in what he called a game, according to court documents. Officer Sean Harrington, 35, confessed to investigators that he sent such photos at last six times over several years to colleagues, the Contra Costa Times reported Friday. Harrington has worked for the CHP for five years, and the newspaper reported that he is assigned to administrative duties pending the investigation. Contra Costa County prosecutors said they expect to announce if they will file criminal charges in the coming days. Officers Robert Hazelwood and Dion Simmons are named in an Oct. 14 search warrant affidavit, suspected of receiving the photos and exchanging banter with Harrington. Drunken driving charges against the woman have been dismissed in light of the investigation of Harrington, the newspaper reported.1930s alumni leave $1M to NY schoolPHOENIX, N.Y.

Two noisy marches crisscrossed the heart of the Italian capital, snarling traffic for hours. Demonstrators cheered as CGIL labor confederation head Susanna Camusso promised more protests and strikes unless Renzi abandons efforts to give employers considerably more leeway to fire workers. The center-left premier contends businesses fear hiring workers they cannot dismiss in case business sours, because current legislation makes it very hard to lay off employees. Renzi is confident the measure would help heal Italys recession-mired economy. Nationwide, unemployment tops more than 12 percent.

The attacker killed one girl on Friday and seriously wounded four others including two of his cousins before he died of what police said was a selfinflicted wound. However, it wasnt clear if the shooter committed suicide or if he accidentally shot himself in the struggle with the teacher. A school resource officer also ran to the scene, Davis said. The shooter was Jaylen Fryberg, a popular freshman at the school, a government official with direct knowledge of the shooting told The Associated Press. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. Students and parents said Fryberg was a member of a prominent family from the nearby Tulalip Indian tribes and a freshman who played on the high school football team. He was introduced at a football game as a prince in the 2014 Homecoming court. Fryberg left months of troubling messages on social media, and friends said hed recently been in a fight over a girl. Davis said he had spoken briefly with Silberberger, who was tramautized. The Marysville School District released a statement from her. While I am thankful and grateful for the support from everyone, at this time I am requesting privacy for myself and my family, Silberberger said. Students said the gunman stared at his victims as he fired. The shootings set off chaos as students ran outside in a frantic dash to safety, while others huddled inside classrooms. Authorities said a .40caliber handgun was recoveredat the shooting scene. Three of the victims had head wounds and were in critical condition Saturday. Two 14-year-old girls were at Providence Everett Medical Center, and were identified by the facility as Shaylee Chucklenaskit and Gia Soriano. Andrew Fryberg, 15, was at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, a hospital official said. Another victim, 14-yearold Nate Hatch, was listed in serious condition at Harborview, the hospital said. Family members told KIRO that Andrew Fryberg, Hatch and Jaylen Fryberg are cousins. Associated PressA young woman holds her head in her hands late Friday as she kneels before candles and flowers placed on the stage at the Grove Church in Marysville, Wash., after a memorial vigil held for people affected by a shooting at Marysville Pilchuck High School. It was reported Saturday that two of the students injured in the shooting were cousins of the shooter. Teacher tried to stop Washington school shooting Associated PressMURSITPINAR, TurkeyFighters from the Islamic State group launched Saturday a new offensive on the northern Syrian town of Kobani after shelling the area from their positions nearby, activists and a Kurdish official said. Heavy fighting took place in Kobani Saturday afternoon and many mortar shells were fired into the town. Machinegun fire could be clearly heard from inside the town where black smoke was billowing. The U.S. Central Command said an airstrike destroyed an IS artillery piece near Kobani. In the afternoon, warplanes of the U.S.-led coalition could be heard flying over Kobani. Idriss Nassan, a senior official in Kobani, said the fighting concentrated on the southern and eastern edges of the town, also known as Ayn Arab. They think they can enter the city and these are just dreams, Nassan told The Associated Press by telephone, adding that IS fighters have not been able to take Kobani despite more than a month of attacks. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the fighting concentrated on the eastern side of the town, surrounded on three sides by Islamic State fighters. It added that IS fighters were spreading news in areas under their control that they will take Kobani on Saturday. IS launched its offensive on Kobani in mid-September and captured dozens of villages before entering parts of the town. The fighting has forced 200,000 people to flee to neighboring Turkey. Earlier this week, the U.S. Central Command said its forces conducted more than 135 airstrikes against the militants in and around Kobani, killing hundreds of IS fighters. The Observatory and Aleppobased activist Ahamd al-Ahmad said that the area near the northern village of Handarat witnessed intense clashes between Syrian rebels and government forces. Government forces are trying to cut a main road linking rebelheld neighborhoods of Aleppo, Syrias largest city, with those in the countryside, Al-Ahmad said via Skype. The Observatory said the fighting near Handarat has left 15 soldiers and pro-government gunmen dead as well as 12 opposition fighters since the early hours of Saturday. Associated PressEDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. A Minneosta startup is using a 3-D printer to create custom urns shaped like objects that were important to the person whose remains they hold. The Eden Prairie-based Foreverence offers urns that are made with a ceramic material that looks different than the plastic material typically produced by a 3-D printer. The process takes a day, starting with about nine hours of printing, and then followed by several hours of touchups, the St. Paul Pioneer Pressreported. Each urn is unique and can take the form of just about anything, including ballet slippers, cars and instruments. It has even made an urn shaped like the signature hats worn by rock band Devo when co-founder Bob Casale died earlier this year. Foreverence offered Casales family the urn and ended up making two for them. Casales family told the company that it was the first joyous moment in a dark period of time for them, Saari said. Foreverence sells its urns, which typically cost thousands of dollars, through funeral directors.

EXCURSIONS Page A15SUNDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE JOURNALOFAJOURNEY Even more days on the high seas Editors Note: This is the next installment in a continuing series of articles from the travel journals of Peter and Leslye Graulich. After a brief hiatus, they appear weekly in the Chronicle Excursions section.Day 45What! Another at sea day? Yup. Is this the last one? Nope. Day 45 is yet another at-sea day. Todays activities include another lecture by John Maxtone Graham titled Queen Elizabeth 2: A Fond Retrospect, which was a complete history of one of the more famous ships. Leslye and I go through our morning routines. We meet up for buffet lunch on the aft deck, outdoors. At 1:30 in the afternoon we attend our second crossing of the equator party. This one is a little bit different than the last one, as the captain has volunteered to take part. When the party ended Leslye remarked that she was very happy she didnt have to do the captains laundry. At the end of the day I have taken a total of 1,789 photographs.Day 46Day 46 is another at-sea day and there are no scheduled activities. I spend the day reading, catching up on my diary, and sending e-mail. We attend the afternoon movie and meet up with our tablemates for dinner. Then its off to bed and a new place to visit tomorrow. At the end of the day, we have traveled 14,701 miles since we left Fort Lauderdale. 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. Fancy Fall foliage Fancy Fall foliage TRACEEM. HERBAUGH Associated PressJAFFREY, N.H. O On Mount Monadnock, hikers file up the 3,165-foot peak in lockstep, protected from drizzling rain by a luminous golden canopy of leaves. Theyre not just gazing at foliage theyre looking at cold, hard cash. Money really does grow on trees in autumn in New England, and all six states are raking it in. Officials say tourists will spend upward of $3 billion to catch a glimpse of the red, yellow and orange hues and the windfall is steadily rising as the economy regains strength. Every year, the radiance of fall draws nature-lovers to Monadnock State Park and countless other mountains, hills, scenic look-outs and shady country lanes by the droves. We wanted to get out in the fresh air and see the colors while its still warm, said Christopher LeBeau, who drove from Connecticut to hike Mount Monadnock. This is full peak here, and its amazing. Lingering warm weather is causing leaves to stay on the trees longer in New England. Some experts say 2014 could be an outstanding year for foliage, aesthetically and financially. The New Hampshire Division of Travel and Tourism Development projected the state would see 8.2 million visitors this fall, and theyre expected to spend $1.6 billion. In 2009, New Hampshire had 7.5 million fall tourists and spending totaled $1 billion. Vermont had 3.6 million fall tourists and $460 million in spending in 2011, the last year for which comprehensive figures were available, up from $331 million in 2009 with roughly the same number of people visiting. Visits to state parks in the Green Mountain State will surpass 950,000 this year, an increase of 8 percent and the highest visit count since 1989, tourism officials said. The fall season accounts for a quarter of annual tourist spending in Vermont. And with this autumn providing an exceptionally brilliant show, the state is seeing a strong turnout. The weather has been excellent this year, and were expecting a longer season, said Megan Smith, Vermonts commissioner for tourism and marketing. If we can show these colorful leaves are out, through our website or social media, then people will drive from Montreal. Theyll drive here from Boston. Smith said Vermont fall visits have grown between three and six percent every year since 2009, when the recession that hit in 2007 bottomed out. Though states calculate tourism spending using different metrics, two key factors are hotel bookings and money spent on restaurant meals. We were hit pretty hard and hotel rooms and meal taxes were off during the recession, said J. Gregory Gerdel, chief of research for Vermonts tourism division. In Maine, spending is up about $92 million since 2009, when autumn visitors brought in $489 million. Last year, they spent $581 million, according to state tourism department figures. Weather and foliage alike have been quite exceptional this year with vibrant color, said Carolann Ouelette, director of Maines office of tourism. Cruise ship traffic helps add to the numbers, and from what we have heard, fall events have seen strong numbers across the state. States have been devoting money and manpower to marketing campaigns in hopes that fall visitors who come for the foliage stay for some of their other attractions: craft beer tasting in Vermont, history in Connecticut and mansion tours in Newport, Rhode Island. In southern New England, where peak foliage generally lasts from late October until mid-November, Massachusetts has the regions largest market for fall tourism, with $2.8 billion in spending in September/October 2013 up from $2.2 billion in the same period in 2012 the state tourism offices research division said. Massachusetts officials dont distinguish how much of that money is spent by visitors drawn by the foliage as opposed to Boston or the Cape Cod beaches. Because of budget constraints, Rhode Island only tracks tourism spending on an annual not seasonal basis; and cash-strapped Connecticut is expected to release figures in December dating back to 2006, the last time it took a hard look at travel in the state. At Concord, Massachusetts historic Walden Pond, the inspiration for Henry David Thoreaus Walden, leaf-peepers took advantage of a long Columbus Day weekend, even though peak season was still a week off. I drove up here from New York to see the fall colors, and I chose Massachusetts because of all the historical sites here, said Glenn Cronick, of Staten Island. I havent been here in the fall before, so I had to see it. Associated PressA tourist photographs Crawford Notch in Carroll, New Hampshire, as foliage reaches peak in New Hampshires White Mountains.

A16SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: My husbands halfbrother is 59 and working as a custodian. John does not drink or smoke and can converse well, but has a learning disability and cannot read. He tried tutors, but made no progress. He did OK while his mother was alive, but she died, and then Johns wife died within the same year. John has four adult children. One has Down syndrome and lives in a group home. One lives three hours away. The other two are nearby, but the youngest also has some difficulties and is childlike in his perception of the world. John can be stubborn and will not take advice, even when he asks for it. Here is the problem: John and his youngest son both work for a man who pays them minimum wage. He takes out Social Security taxes, but then does not pay the government, which then comes after John to pay his taxes, so he ends up paying twice. When John needed a car to travel to various janitorial jobs, the boss began withholding $200 a month from his paycheck, which he claimed he would save so John could buy a better car. Now we hear that the boss is selling John his own used car for double the book price at 18 percent interest. John brought the written agreement to show my husband, but hed already signed it. I want to report this employer, but John is afraid he will lose his job. He has tried working with a lawyer to get disability, but fails to show up for appointments, partly because he cannot read his mail informing him when to be there. My husband has taken him to various agencies, but John doesnt follow through. What can I do? Disgusted with the Situation in Iowa Dear Disgusted: Johns employer is taking illegal advantage of him. Please talk to your husband and also to John about contacting Disability Rights Iowa (disabilityrightsiowa.org) to report the situation. Someone there can also help John deal with his fear of losing his job, which is part of the reason he doesnt follow through. (For those in other states, contact the National Disability Rights Network at ndrn.org.) You may need to enlist the help of his children or even a caregiver to go through his mail, drive him to appointments and make sure he does whatever is necessary to rectify this situation.

EXCURSIONSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014 A17 Little Dancer musical readies for opening BRETTZONGKER Associated PressWASHINGTON Little Dancer Aged Fourteen, a famous sculpture by Edgar Degas that can be seen in museums around the world, is coming to life in a new musical exploring the story of a mysterious 14year-old dancer and the artist who portrayed her. The production imagines the story of Marie van Goethem, a struggling dancer in the world of the Paris Opera Ballet in the late 1800s when dancing represented a chance at escaping poverty. Degas took an interest in dancers for his paintings and sculptures, leaving behind images of young ballerinas popular more than a century later. The $7 million Kennedy Center musical opens Saturday for previews and runs through Nov. 20 in Washington. Its the brainchild of the Broadway team of playwright and lyricist Lynn Ahrens, composer Stephen Flaherty and director and choreographer Susan Stroman. The show was born out of their love of dance and an interest in one of the most important sculptures at the National Gallery of Art. I would wonder about that little girl, Stroman said during a recent visit to the museum. Like, Who was she? Why did he choose her? She looked different from all the other ballerinas that he would paint, and you could tell that she had spirit, she had character. Degas, played by Tony Award-winning actor Boyd Gaines, made the wax-and-clay sculpture between 1878 and 1881 as his eyesight began to fade. The piece was cast in bronze and circulated widely after the artist died, making it a fixture in museums. Parts of the story are based on writings left by Degas and American artist Mary Cassatt, who collaborated with him and who figures in the story as a strong woman amid a rising feminist movement. When Degas exhibited his sculpture, critics disapproved, saying he created a homely specimen. Later, his young subject was fired from the ballet, though its not clear why. She disappears from the records, curators said. That gave Ahrens an opening to create the rest of Maries story. Stroman and Ahrens said they grew up seeing Degas images of dancers. Ahrens would pose like the Little Dancer as a girl. For every little girl, every dancer, everybody who loves art ... they know the face of that tough little girl, Ahrens said. But they dont know her name. The story is a unique concept, crossing art forms with a music-anddance-infused story inspired by a 130-year-old artwork that was inspired by the ballet. Its a risk for the Kennedy Center in seeking to draw a crowd and to recoup its costs from often disparate audiences for theater, dance and fine art. Stroman whose Broadway credits include The Producers, Contact and The Music Man said she is one of the few people bridging genres as a lover of both ballet and musical theater. But she hopes Little Dancer will appeal more widely. What Im hoping for is that someone who loves the ballet will want to come see a story about a ballet dancer in Paris and then someone who loves art will come to see the real story about the sculpture and then someone who loves musical theater will come because of that, she said. Tiler Peck, the New York City Ballet principal dancer who plays the young Marie, has visited the sculpture twice since rehearsals moved to Washington. I want to make sure I get it as perfectly as possible and to be as true to the sculpture as I can, she said. To be able to see exactly how her hands are clasped and what her hair looked like, where the ribbon was placed. The role is emotionally exhausting, Peck said, because Maries life was traumatic. She was a complete survivor, and shell do whatever she can to make her dreams of becoming a ballerina come true, Peck said. I feel like thats the one hope she has.

SUSANMONTOYABRYAN Associated PressLOS ALAMOS, N.M. From the snow-dusted peaks of Arizonas San Francisco Mountains to the fire-singed hillsides surrounding this northern New Mexico town, Mother Nature is signaling that fall is here. For Los Alamos, this year marks one of the first in which the aspens are big enough and bright enough to catch the attention of fall leaf peepers. The area was devastated in 2000 and again in 2011 by record-setting wildfires that wiped out entire mountainsides of old-growth ponderosa pine, fir trees and everything in between. Aspens and scrub oak have returned to some of the areas charred by the Cerro Grande fire after more than a decade. At the edges of the burn scar left by the more recent Las Conchas fire, aspens can be seen peeking out from behind charred stands of pine trees. Its all lit up right now, and its looking kind of neat, Mike Lippiatt, a Los Alamos resident, said of the fall foliage west of town. Well never see the pine trees again in our day, but at least well see the aspen trees come back. Its getting better. The West has been ravaged by wildfire in recent years, in part due to the combination of overgrown forests and worsening drought. While the flames have reduced the number of spots where Westerns can take in the fall colors, experts say some locations promise to be even brighter as vegetation recovers and aspens fill the void. Federal and state land managers say fall colors are at their peak in the high country around Flagstaff, along the Mogollon Rim and on Mt. Lemmon near Tucson. The lower elevations around Oak Creek Canyon and Sedona are expected to begin producing more golden canopies in the next week or so. In New Mexico, some spots in the far north are already past their peak thanks to cooler temperatures. Areas along the Rio Grande Valley and to the south are beginning to pop with splashes of yellow, red and orange as the aspens, oak and cottonwoods change color. Timing and intensity vary from year to year depending on the weather and how healthy the tree is heading into the season. Our fairly wet and not excessively hot summer may have aided leaf growth and production overall. Then there is the temperature component, which helps to initiate leaf color change in the fall, said Chuck Maxwell, a meteorologist with the interagency Southwest Coordination Center in Albuquerque. Another big factor in the Southwest is the wind. Maxwell said the viewing season can be stretched out as long as there are no strong wind events that strip the trees bare. Fall colors dot Arizona, New Mexico landscapes Staten Island wheel complex getting 4-D ride, camBETHJ. HARPAZ AP Travel EditorNEW YORK A thrill ride themed on the subway is planned for the Staten Island waterfront where a giant Ferris wheel will be built. New York Wheel CEO Rich Marin described the 4-D ride to tour operators Wednesday at the site for the planned 625-foot wheel. Marin said the thrill ride will simulate a ride in a subway car on an adventure through a fictional tunnel beneath the harbor. It will be called Time Train. Marin also said a webcam will be installed on an old lighthouse just offshore. Itll provide a 24-hour look as construction proceeds on the wheel near the ferry terminal. The New York Wheel is scheduled to open in 2017, with groundbreaking planned for 2015.

Army First Sgt. (E-8) Brian Allen Minor served one tour in Iraq and three tours in Afghanistan. He recently returned from an assignment with Alpha Company 206th Military Intelligence Battalion and is now stationed at Fort Hood, Texas. Army Specialist (E-4) Jared Todd assignments in Operation Enduring Freedom included over 500 combat patrols, training Afghan police outside the City of Kandahar and as personal security for an Afghan General officer. Specialist Todd remains in the Army Reserve and it was announced during the evening that he had been selected to enter training to become a Citrus County Veterans Service Officer. Army Sgt. (E-5) Anthony Brice served in Iraq with the 160th Special Operation Aviation Regiment (Airborne) where missions included insertion and extraction of Special Forces, including Navy Seal and Delta Force personnel, into remote combat regions. Injured during a Nightstalker parachute operation, he has since left the military and now resides in Inverness. In addition to veterans and private organizations honoring these three heroes, the ceremony was attended by numerous government representatives including Congressman Richard Nugent, Florida House Rep. Jimmie Smith and county commissioners Joe Meek and Scott Adams. Each spoke about the military service of the three veterans and offered personal appreciation for heroism in combat. Nugent, a father having sons that are also combat veterans, spoke about his firsthand knowledge of the difficulties of families at home that were not only concerned for their loved ones, but having to emotionally and financially deal with not having dad or mom in their lives during repeated deployments. Another Operation Welcome Home is being scheduled for Oct. 31 at VFW Post 4252 in Hernando for more returning heroes. Everyone is invited to be part of this program honoring those who serve America in uniform and to remember the families at home suffering through the absence of a father, mother, son or daughter. Come honor them for their sacrifices for our freedom.

Early deadlines Due to early deadlines, certain content lottery numbers and some sports coverage will not appear in Fridays edition. 000JGV3 JACKSONVILLE If the Miami Dolphins are going to be a playoff contender, they proba bly need to start stacking some wins together. It hasnt happened this season. The up-and-down Dolphins (3-3) will try to end the trend Sunday against the nolonger-winless Jacksonville Jaguars (1-6). Weve got to finish games bet ter, Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said. Certainly we havent done it yet, and until we do, its one of the challenges weve got to meet as a football team. Miami faded down the stretch in losses to Buffalo, Kansas City and Green Bay. The Dolphins rebounded from the last-second loss to the Packers and won at Chicago last week. How they handle another road trip to Jacksonville, which is coming off its first win since last Decem ber, might be a more telling sign of the teams makeup. Philbin didnt want to call it a trap game, but cornerback Cortland Finnegan said its human nature to overlook a onewin team like Jacksonville. I think you can, but weve only got three wins, Finnegan said. They dont care that we won last week and vice versa. I think theyre going to come out, theyre playing at home, theyre energetic, theyre young, theyre coached well. I think they are looking for the next opportunity to get a win, and we cant let our guard down. Jaguars coach Gus Bradley is concerned about how his young team will respond following its first victory. Jacksonville had its best defensive performance of the season in a 24-6 win against Cleveland, but rookie quarter back Blake Bortles threw a ca reer-high three interceptions. I talked to them about, Just because we had a win, theres something else missing, Bradley said. I think some of the guys felt like we didnt play our best. ... To me, thats victory and were striving to get everybody to be at their best, then the re sults will come. rffrnPhins, Jags: Battle in the Sunshine State See PHINS/Page B3Associated Pressrrffn ttbnntn r The attorney leading the NFL players union investigation into the Ray Rice domestic violence case told The Associated Press the league and the Baltimore Ravens have not been cooperating. Richard Craig Smith told the AP on Friday night that the NFL has not provided documents and wit nesses requested by the NFLPAs investigators, while the Ravens have refused any cooperation with similar requests. I am interested in the facts, and if we get cooperation from all the parties that were involved, we will have an understanding of what happened, Smith said. We can not accept public statements that call for transparency, candor and openness and then not allow the investigators to do their jobs. The unions investigation, like a similar probe organized by the NFL, isnt a law enforcement in quiry and the parties involved ar ent under any legal obligation to comply with requests. The league and the union, however, have each said separately that they wanted answers in the case. A spokesman for the NFL couldnt comment immediately when reached Friday night while a spokesman for the Ravens didnt immediately return a phone message. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Rice indefi nitely Sept. 8 for violating the leagues personal conduct policy, once video of Rice hitting his then-fiancee was released publicly. The players union hired Smith, a former federal prosecutor, one month ago to oversee its investiga tion into how the Ravens and the league handled themselves during the events that led to the suspension, as well as how the team handled issues like due process. Separately, the NFL hired former FBI director Robert S. Mueller III to conduct a probe into how the league handled evidence as it in vestigated the claims against Rice. NFL owners plan to make the findings of Muellers report public. Smith said the unions investiga tion is important to ensuring the process was fair, and that requires transparency.NFL, Ravens not helping union in Rice probe See RICE/Page B3 TAMPA Leslie Frazier has moved on since being fired in Minnesota, settling into a position with the Tampa Bay Bucca neers that hasnt allowed much time to ponder what went wrong in his old job. The former Chicago Bears star and long time NFL assistant spent seven seasons with the Vikings, the final three as head coach. He led them to the playoffs two years ago, but was dismissed last winter after a 5-10-1 finish. When his old team faces his new one today, the Bucs defensive coordinator in sists his lone objective will be helping struggling Tampa Bay (1-5) creep back into the NFC South race not gaining per sonal satisfaction by handing the sputter ing Vikings (2-5) a fourth consecutive loss. When youre sitting where were at as a team, 1-5 overrides everything, Frazier said. You look where our division is, and you realize this win could get us started. That really supersedes everything else. Our being able to get a win would be so good for our team and what were trying to get accomplished this season. Thats typical Frazier: polite, low-key and understated. Hes also right. Despite dropping five of their first six games and ranking 30th among 32 teams in offense and dead last in defense, the Bucs are very much alive in a division where none of their rivals has a winning record. The flip side is neither the defense, which was expected to be a strength, nor an offense thats been outscored 123-27 before halftime this season, showed indications of rebounding to rise above Caro lina (3-3-1), New Orleans (2-4) and Atlanta (2-5) to contend for a playoff berth. I look at the big picture, said coach Lovie Smith, in his first season of trying to turn around a franchise that hasnt earned a postseason berth since 2007. The big picture is the leader in our division has two more wins than we do. Theres so much football left to go. Thats a tune the Vikings can sing, too, although they enter today trailing NFC North co-leaders Detroit and Green Bay by three games. Overcoming their slow start will be dif ficult, too, especially with rookie quarter back Teddy Bridgewater playing earlier than first-year coach Mike Zimmer anticipated. The 32nd pick in the draft won his first start against the Falcons on Sept. 28. He tossed his first touchdown pass during last weeks 17-16 loss to Buffalo.tbrn Associated Pressfrrfttrn bnttf McCoy signs 7-year dealDefensive tackle Gerald McCoy has signed a seven-year extension with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers worth $98 million, making McCoy the highest-paid player at his position. McCoy, a 2013 All-Pro, will get $51.5 million guaranteed, the most ever given to a defensive tackle in NFL history. His new deal will average $14 million per year. Including his current salary for 2014, McCoy would make $111 million over the eight-year period. The deal was concluded Sat-urday by McCoys agent, Ben Dogra, and Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht. Dogra said, Gerald is ex-tremely excited to remain with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he is especially thankful to Bucs owners, coaches, and Jason Licht for working so hard throughout the process.

B2 r Theres only one zero remain ing in the NFL standings, right next to Oakland and on the wrong side of the ledger. The Raiders, as bad as any pro franchise over the last dozen years, head to Cleveland, where the Browns seemed to be in the midst of the leagues top feelgood story until they went to Jacksonville and promptly handed the Jaguars their first win. Oakland (0-6) has dropped 12 in a row going back to last year. Our concern is getting one win and winning the next game, said interim coach Tony Sparano, 0-2 since taking over for the fired Dennis Allen. That really has to be our focus, be cause if we look at the picture down the road right now, the pa rade might pass us by. That hap pened to a few teams this week in this league. Were not going to do that. But there needs to be a sense of urgency when the skid is at a dozen and counting. Sparano, who went 29-33 as Miamis head coach from 2008-11, recognizes that. You cant keep saying, Well get it next week; well get it next week. Thats not one of the things that works in this league, Sparano said. You have to get it when the opportunity is out there, and weve gotten opportu nities in the last two weeks. We put ourselves in position to win and we didnt win the football game. The Browns (3-3) didnt put themselves where they wanted and probably should have been by losing last week. All of that promising work that preceded the defeat now is being questioned. Maybe its good we lost last week, quarterback Brian Hoyer said, I dont think we underesti mated anyone, but I think now we see that no matter who were playing we have to be at our best and theres no excuses, and we have to go out and execute. The action began Thursday night with a terrific AFC West matchup in which Denver out scored San Diego 35-21. Peyton Manning threw for three more touchdowns, all to Emmanuel Sanders, as the Broncos im proved to 6-1. Juwan Thompson had two short scoring runs. The Chargers (5-3) got two TD catches from tight end Antonio Gates. Off this week are San Fran cisco (4-3) and the New York Giants (3-4). Philadelphia (5-1) at Arizona (5-1) A matchup of two superbly coached teams who have over come some key injuries. Philadelphias pass rush has come alive, with 16 of 19 sacks in the last three games. Arizona doesnt have nearly that forceful a rush. The Eagles also have seven touchdowns not scored by the offense, four on special teams, further displaying their balance. But the Cardinals are 10-2 with Carson Palmer at quarter back and their defense has not allowed an opponent to rush for 100 yards, the only team that can brag about that. They run a lot of different looks on the defensive side of the ball, so they can confuse you a little bit, Eagles coach Chip Kelly says. But also theyve got some really, really good football players on the defensive side of the ball. Washington (2-5) at Dallas (6-1), Monday night Only Denver and Oakland have faced off more times on Monday nights (17) than these two NFC East rivals, who go at it for the 16th time in the spotlight game. Washington cant be comfort able, though, having lost its last seven prime-time outings. Plus, the Redskins cant find a way to beat any division partner, losing all six last year and two this year. No team is more surprisingly successful so far than Dallas, led by DeMarco Murray, who broke Jim Browns mark by rushing for at least 100 years in the first seven games. Indianapolis (5-2) at Pittsburgh (4-3) The Colts are on a major role with five successive victories and the NFLs top offense. But their defense, which blanked Cincinnati 27-0 last Sunday, is coming on, too. They do a lot of blitzing, a lot of confusion, Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said. Outside, their defensive backs do a lot of press-man, holding, grabbing, just being physical. And it makes it tough to get a pass into them. Pittsburgh can move the ball, too. Antonio Brown leads the NFL with 719 yards receiving and RB LeVeon Bell is second in NFL in total yards (938). Bell has topped 100 total yards in seven straight games. Green Bay (5-2) at New Orleans (2-4) Four road games, four losses for the Saints. Two home games, two wins. Green Bay has won four straight, two on the road. The key here could be protect ing the ball. The Packers turn over margin is a league-best plus-10 and their four giveaways are as low as any NFC team. The Saints margin is minus-8 and their four takeaways rank worst in the conference. Seattle (3-3) at Carolina (3-3-1) Start the playoffs now and the Seahawks are watching from home. Theyve lost two in a row and have looked sloppy in both defeats. But they are headed to Char lotte for the third straight year and won the previous two trips. Despite sitting atop the weak NFC South, the Panthers have been outgained by six of their seven opponents. Their suppos edly strong defense has wilted and the Panthers have allowed 37 or more points in four of the last five games. Baltimore (5-2) at Cincinnati (3-2-1) These teams met to open the season and the Bengals won thanks to A.J. Greens juggling 77-yard TD catch late in fourth quarter. His toe injury has not only sidelined the star receiver but put a huge crimp in the Ben gals attack. Meanwhile, the Ravens are rolling. Baltimore has yielded only 14.9 points per game, few est in the NFL, with the 23 points against Cincinnati the most allowed. The offense has been pretty dynamic, too: Joe Flacco has thrown seven TD passes over the last two games. Chicago (3-4) at New England (5-2) The Bears probably are glad to get away from Soldier Field, where they are 0-3. Their best weapon, RB Matt Forte, leads the NFL with 52 receptions and is fifth with 448 yards rushing. Meanwhile, DE Willie Young is tied for the NFC lead with seven sacks. Slowing down Tom Brady, who has hit his stride recently, would be a good idea for Chicago. Brady has thrown for 914 yards, nine TDs with no interceptions in the last three games, all wins. St. Louis (2-4) at Kansas City (3-3) For the Governors Cup. Kansas City has won five straight in this series dating to Sept. 25, 1994, when the Rams were still in Los Angeles. But St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher is 4-0 against Chiefs coach Andy Reid from their days when Fisher was at Tennessee and Reid was in Philadelphia. Rams star DE Robert Quinn, who had 19 sacks last season, got his first this season in last weeks upset of the Seahawks. Kansas City LB Justin Houston has seven sacks, tied for second in the NFL. Houston (3-4) at Tennessee (2-5) The Texans thought they could contend with the Colts in the AFC South, but theyve dropped three in a row, includ ing losing to Indy. They hope to get top overall draft pick Jade veon Clowney back on defense. He hurt his knee in the opener. Tennessee starts rookie QB Zach Mettenberger for the first time. Knowing that might make Clowney even more eager to get back on the field. Buffalo (4-3) at New York Jets (1-6) The Bills lost their one-two punch at running back, C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, to in juries. So Brice Brown and An thony Dixon get the call against reeling New York, which has dropped six in a row for the first time in Rex Ryans tenure. The Jets added WR-KR Percy Harvin in a trade with Seattle, hoping he will boost their ane mic passing game and help spe cial teams. Detroit (5-2) vs. Atlanta (2-5) YAWN! No, no, we arent bored. Its just this game is starting at 9:30 a.m. and 6:30 on the West Coast. Make sure to get your fan tasy lineups set Saturday night. This experiment makes Li ons-Falcons a day match on the Wembley pitch. The last thing the Falcons needed to do, given their struggles on the road, is sacrifice a home game, but they have done just that. Moving the ball against the Lions has become problematic: Detroit ranks first in overall de fense, second against the run. Raiders try to erase only zero left rfntbbn Associated Press rfntbtn fnffbfft RENTON, Wash. One of the hall marks of the Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl run was the ability to wreak havoc on quarterbacks. Whether it was Cliff Avril, Michael Bennett or Chris Clemons to name a few the Seahawks were constantly put ting opposing quarterbacks under pressure. This season, Seattles pass rush isnt close to matching its effectiveness from last year. Its the combination of guys getting clean on their rushes off of play actions in the early downs, getting in the back field. Also, us covering a guy down, mak ing the quarterback hold the football for an extra beat so that works hand-inhand, Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. Just in general, we have not been as ef fective with the things that weve done to rush the passer and pressures and stuff like that. Seattle is tied for 27th in the NFL with just seven sacks through six games. Only Oakland and St. Louis have fewer sacks, but having Seattle near the bottom is sur prising after the Seahawks ranked in the top 10 last season. There are several reasons for the drop in Seattles sack numbers. Its also having a trickle-down effect on the number of turnovers Seattle has forced so far only five through six games. After six games last season, Seattle had 16 sacks and had forced 17 turnovers. If ever there was a week for Seattles pass rush to get healthy it would be today against Carolina. The Panthers are banged up on the offensive line and Car roll said there would be adjustments made to the pass-rush this week. Whether thats different rotations or more blitz packages remains to be seen. For us, when they do step back we have to make them pay, Avril said. The ball is coming out kind of quick, but for us we have to keep chopping away, keep getting better and everything will play itself out. Much of the burden has fallen on Avril and Bennett. Last season, Seattles de fensive line had enough depth that the playing time for both was decreased and the pair was able to stay fresher through out the season. Avril and Bennett are playing signifi cantly more snaps this season and Ben nett has yet to be as effective as an inside rusher. According to Football Outsiders, Avril has been in for 66.3 percent of Seat tles defensive snaps this season and Bennett is at 81.5 percent. Last season, Bennett played 57.5 percent of the snaps and Avril 52.3. If you watch film, weve hit the quar terback a few times, Avril said. We feel like we can get there. Its just not going that way right now. Well be all right. Offenses this season are also being smarter against what the Seahawks do so well. Instead of pushing the ball down field and challenging the likes of Earl Thomas and Richard Sherman, quarter backs are content to throw shorter, un derneath passes, especially when the Seahawks are playing zone coverage. That doesnt give Seattles pass rush an opportunity to get to the quarterback. So far this season, 31.6 percent of com pletions against Seattles defense have been thrown within 6 yards of the line of scrimmage, a percentage thats up slightly from last season. On top of that, Seattle is giving up more yards after the catch. This year its just a little different, Bennett said. Every year is a different dynamic. Were at the perfect part of the season to figure out where we want to be at as far as rushing. n n Sackless in Seattle Associated Press nnffnbfffb tnrfbfbnnffbn

LOTTERY FOOTBALL r B3 Here are some things to know about the Dolphins and Jaguars heading into todays game: GETTING DEFENSIVE Miami has played solid defense most of the year, with pass rushers Cameron Wake and Olivier Vernon leading the way up front, and corner backs Cortland Finnegan and Brent Grimes handling things on the back end. Jacksonville hasnt been nearly as stout in 2014, but the Jaguars have been at their best the last three weeks. Bradleys unit has given up two touch downs and allowed an average of 309 yards against Pittsburgh, Tennessee and Cleveland. The film says that this team is improving dramatically over the last three weeks that were playing, Philbin said. ADDITION, SUBTRACTION The Dolphins are expected to have defensive end Dion Jordan, the third overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft, ac tive after serving a six-game suspen sion for violating the leagues substance abuse policy. The Jaguars, meanwhile, could be down four de fenders. They lost starting linebacker Paul Posluszny (torn pectoral) for the season against Cleveland and defen sive end Andre Branch (groin) for at least six weeks. Alan Ball is highly unlikely to play because of a biceps injury, and fellow starting cornerback Dwayne Gratz left practice Thursday with a hip flexor tightness. BACKUP RBS Both teams will start backup run ning backs in Week 8, with the Dol phins turning to Lamar Miller to replace Knowshon Moreno following a season-ending knee injury, and the Jaguars switching to former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson after Toby Gerhart reinjured his right foot. Miller ranks sixth in the AFC with 391 yards rushing. Robinson is coming off a career game: He ran 22 times for 127 yards and a touchdown against the Browns. MOBILE QBS Miamis Ryan Tannehill and Jack sonvilles Bortles rank first and sec ond, respectively, in the AFC in yards rushing by quarterbacks. Tannehill has 150 yards on the ground more than any Jacksonville running back and Bortles has 143. Tannehills 40yard run against Green Bay is the teams longest of the season, and Bor tles 20-yarder against Indianapolis is tied for Jacksonvilles longest in 2014. NO POOLS Jacksonvilles two pools at Ever Bank Field will be covered up for Sundays game. Construction workers have begun installing temporary seat ing for the annual Florida-Georgia college football game played at the stadium. So instead of having a twostory party deck with the two wading pools and several high-priced ca banas, the Jaguars will have half-in stalled metal framing that will be used for extra bleachers. If the NFL is genuinely concerned about fixing the issues that led to an admitted mistake, then they should be honest and forthright about what they knew and when they knew it, Smith said. We want both our team and Bob Muellers team each to be able to con duct a thorough review of all the rele vant facts. Smith, the head of regulatory and governmental investigation for the law firm Norton Rose Fulbright, rep resented the union during the Saints bounty scandal that resulted in four players being reinstated from suspen sion through an appeal in 2012. Goodell originally suspended Rice for two games. Once the video became public, the Ravens cut Rice, and the league banned him indefinitely. The league considered the video to be new evidence, giving Goodell the authority to further suspend Rice. The players union appealed Rices suspension, saying he should not be punished twice. Former U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones was selected by the commissioner and the players union to hear the appeal. A person fa miliar with the case told the AP that Judge Jones told Goodell on Wednes day that he should testify at the hear ing, which will be held Nov. 5-6. The person, speaking on condition of anonymity because details havent been made public, said Adolpho Birch, the NFLs vice president for labor policy, league attorney Kevin Manara and security chief Jeffery Miller also are expected to testify along with Ravens President Dick Cass and general manager Ozzie New some. Rice plans to testify and his wife, Janay, might testify, the person said. Teddy has been a little bit up and down. ... Hes got a bunch of learning experiences. I really like this kid, his mentality, his toughness, really the way he throws the ball and the way he carries himself, Zimmer said. Were hoping that he continues on the track that we expect him to. Ideally, the Bucs would like to take advantage of the rookies inexperi ence. But with a pass rush that hasnt pro duced a sack in the past two games, and a banged-up secondary coming off an outing in which Baltimores Joe Flacco threw for five TDs in the first 16:03 of a 48-17 rout, Frazier cautions Tampa Bays focus has be on getting better not on any particular player on Minnesotas offense. Still, he likes what hes seen of Bridgewater. Hes handled situations pretty good his first few starts. Hes shown a lot of poise, a lot of composure, Fra zier said. He looks like a guy whos going to continue to grow and get bet ter. That being said, youd like to be able to find a way to rattle a young quarterback as much as you can. Meanwhile, several Vikings who played for Frazier said it will be good to see him again. It will be interesting. Obviously Ive been with the guy for a long time and I have a lot of respect for him as a man and as a coach. It will be fun to play against, to compete against him, linebacker Chad Greenway said, add ing that last week Minnesota faced Fred Pagac, now the linebackers coach in Buffalo. He holds a special place in my heart for sure, and Leslie is kind of the same way, Greenway added. You go with a guy for that long, youve been through some stuff. Things to watch when the Vikings and Bucs try to get their seasons on track: NO QB CONTROVERSY Even though Josh McCown re turned to practice this week, sec ond-year pro Mike Glennon is expected to make his fourth start of the season for Tampa Bay. McCown has been sidelined with an injured thumb on his throwing hand since Week 3. SPUTTERING VIKINGS If theres an offense that rivaled Tampa Bays offense this season, its Minnesota. The Vikings, whove had to play without the suspended Adrian Peterson, are 29th in yards per game at 309.1, just ahead of the Bucs 306.8. SOFT CHALLENGE ucs DT Gerald McCoy says the team has to get tougher, both physically and mentally, if its going to shed a soft image and turn its season around. START FASTER One of Tampa Bays priorities during last weeks bye was to explore ways to start games faster. The Bucs have scored 17 points in the first quar ter and just 10 in the second. YOUNG TEDDY Bridgewater has appeared in four games, starting three. Hes thrown for 812 yards, one TD and five intercep tions. Hes also been sacked 15 times.

B4 r LEXINGTON, Ky. Dak Prescott ac counted for three touchdowns, Josh Robinson rushed for two TDs and topranked Mississippi State beat Kentucky 45-31 on Saturday. Playing for the first time atop the rankings, the Bulldogs (7-0, 4-0 South eastern Conference) showed no rust coming off a bye. That was a good thing in a wild game that resembled a shootout at times, which Mississippi State won with timely touchdowns that held off the stubborn Wildcats (5-3, 2-3). Kentucky got within a touchdown four times, and Heisman Trophy hopeful Prescott and Robinson answered with TDs on three occasions. Prescott ran for TDs of 2 and 11 yards and hit Brandon Hill for an 8-yard TD. Robinsons 73-yard touchdown run early in the fourth for a 38-24 lead proved critical after Patrick Towles 4-yard TD dive with 2:31 remaining brought Kentucky within 38-31. Christian Holmes 61-yard kickoff re turn TD nine seconds later provided the Bulldogs final answer. Robinson, who rushed for 198 yards on 23 carries, capped Mississippi States opening drive with a 12-yard TD run. Prescott completed 18 of 33 passes for 216 yards with an interception and rushed for 88 yards on 18 carries. Missis sippi State outgained Kentucky 542-504 and needed every yard. Those big contributions helped Bull dogs win their 10th straight game dating back to last season. They also earned their sixth straight win over the Wildcats in tying the series at 21 wins each. But typical of a competitive series where four of the past six games have been decided by a touchdown or less, Mississippi State couldnt exhale until the final gun. Thats because Kentucky used big plays to stay close as Towles hit De marco Robinson for a game-tying 67yard touchdown in the first quarter and Javess Blue for a 58-yard TD late in the third. Towles 48-yard run in that quar ter set up his 10-yard run that brought the Wildcats within 24-17. Towles finished with 390 yards on 24of-43 passing and led Kentucky with 76 yards rushing on 23 carries. He was following the lead set early and often by Prescott. No. 11 Kansas State 23, Texas 0 MANHATTAN, Kan. No. 11 Kansas States rapidly improving defense pitched the first shutout of Texas in more than a decade in a 23-0 victory that kept the Wildcats un beaten in Big 12 play. Matthew McCrane kicked three field goals, and DeMarcus Robinson and Charles Jones each ran for a touchdown to lead the Wildcats (6-1, 4-0). Jake Waters threw for 224 yards, and Tyler Lockett had eight catches for 103 yards to climb another notch in the school record books. Tyrone Swoopes was just 13 of 25 for 106 yards for the Longhorns (3-5, 2-3), who were shut out for the first time since a 12-0 loss to Oklahoma on Oct. 9, 2004. The blanking came just one week after they put up 524 yards of offense in a 48-45 victory over Iowa State. No. 16 Nebraska 42, Rutgers 24 LINCOLN, Neb. Ameer Abdullah ran for 225 yards and three touchdowns and set a school record with 341 all-purpose yards, leading No. 16 Nebraska to a 42-24 victory over Rutgers. Abdullah surpassed 200 yards rushing for a nation-leading fourth time this season and fifth time in his career. He broke Roy Helu Jr.s record of 321 all-purpose yards with his 23-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. The Cornhuskers (7-1, 3-1) reached the halfway point of conference play tied with Minnesota for first in the West Division. Big Ten newcomer Rutgers lost 56-17 at Ohio State a week ago and has been out scored 98-41 in its past two games. The Scarlet Knights (5-3, 1-3) lost quarter back Gary Nova on the second-to-last play of the first half. Nova held his right knee after Maliek Collins brought him down as he got rid of the ball. Chris Laviano played the rest of the game. Miss. St. survives Kentucky FORT WORTH, Texas Trevone Boykin threw a school-record seven touchdown passes and No. 10 TCU showcased a new fast-paced offense by scoring the most points in its history in an 82-27 rout of Texas Tech on Saturday. The Horned Frogs (6-1, 3-1 Big 12) beat their previous scoring high of 69 in the spread attack directed in part by co-offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie, a former Texas Tech quarter back who spent the past four seasons as an assistant with the Red Raiders. Boykin had two scoring tosses each to Josh Doctson and Deante Gray, who had a 92-yarder about 2 minutes before Ty Slanina caught a 57-yard touchdown that gave TCU 61 points midway through the third quarter. Texas Tech (3-5, 1-4) rolled up 287 of the combined 512 total yards in the first quarter before fading with turnovers and special teams mistakes. Boykin was 22 of 39 for 433 yards while setting a career high in yards passing for the second week in a row, this time needing just three quarters before he was replaced by Matt Joeckel. The touchdown that put TCU over 70 points for the first time was a pitch from third-stringer Zach Allen to Trev orris Johnson for a 4-yard score two plays after Joeckel limped off the field. Johnson scored again to put the Horned Frogs over 80 with 1:16 remain ing a decade after Cumbie led the Red Raiders to a 70-35 victory over the Horned Frogs, the most points allowed in Gary Pattersons 15 seasons as coach. TCU, which beat New Mexico 69-0 in its previous highest-scoring game in 2011, topped the Red Raiders for the first time in three tries since joining the Big 12 in 2012 and reuniting the for mer Southwest Conference foes. It was TCUs first win over Tech since a 12-3 victory in 2006. The Horned Frogs set a series scor ing record against an opponent for the fourth straight week, yet another pay off for Patterson after hiring Cumbie and Doug Meacham in the offseason when he decided that he needed an of fense that could keep up in the fastpaced Big 12. Texas Techs Davis Webb kept pace early by throwing for 230 of his 300 yards in the first quarter before an in terception and two fumbles by the quarterback led to 13 first-half points for TCU. Webb was replaced by fresh man Pat Mahomes after he was slow to get up from a hit in the third quarter. Gray led TCU with 165 yards receiv ing on four catches, and Doctson added 76 a week after he missed the school record by a yard on a 225-yard day that included touchdowns of 77 and 84 yards. He had a 51-yarder this week. Aaron Green had a career-long run of 62 yards for TCUs first touchdown and finished with 105 for his first 100yard game. DeAndre Washingtons two-game streak of setting career highs in rush ing ended with the Texas Tech running back finishing with 77 yards, including a 48-yard run that set up a field goal for a 10-7 lead in the first quarter. After the last of four turnovers from the Red Raiders on an interception by Mahomes late in the third quarter, TCUs Chris Hackett and Texas Techs D.J. Polite-Gray received offsetting personal foul penalties and were ejected for throwing punches. They will have to serve one-game suspensions. TCU sets record in 82-27 rout of Tech EAST LANSING, Mich. Jeremy Langford ran for 177 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 8 Michigan State trounced rival Michigan again, 35-11 on Saturday. The Spartans (7-1, 4-0 Big Ten) have won six of their past seven games against the Wolverines, only the second time Michigan State has accomplished that in a series that dates to 1898. The Wolverines (3-5, 1-3) are in danger of missing the postseason in Brady Hokes fourth year at the helm, and this game did little to ease Michigans de scent in 2014. The Wolverines were held to zero yards rushing in the first half. Michigan State has won 14 straight against Big Ten opponents. The Spartans have next weekend off before hosting Ohio State in a rematch of last years con ference championship game. No. 25 UCLA 40, Colorado 37, 2 OT BOULDER, Colo. Quarterback Brett Hundley had an 8-yard touchdown run in dou ble overtime to give No. 25 UCLA a 40-37 vic tory over Colorado. UCLA (6-2, 3-2 Pac-12) squandered a 17-point lead in the fourth quarter as Colorado tied the game on a 35-yard field goal by Will Oliver with 36 seconds remaining. The teams traded field goals in the first OT. The Bruins then stopped the Buffaloes (2-6, 0-5) in the second OT and they settled for a 34-yarder from Oliver. Hundley faked a handoff and went into the end zone untouched for the winning score. The junior quarterback rushed for 110 yards. Hundley also threw for 200 yards and one TD pass, giving him 67 in his career and moving him one away from tying Cade Nc Nown for most in program history. No. 22 West Virginia 34, Oklahoma State 10 STILLWATER, Okla. Wendell Smallwood ran for a career-high 132 yards to help No. 22 West Virginia defeat Oklahoma State 34-10. Smallwood stepped in for Rushel Shell, who sat out with a foot injury suffered during a win over then-No. 4 Baylor last week. Clint Trickett passed for 238 yards and two touchdowns and Mario Alford caught seven passes for a season-high 136 yards for the Mountaineers (6-2, 4-1 Big 12), who won their fourth straight and beat the Cowboys for the second straight year. West Virginia won despite Kevin Whites off day. The nations leader in yards receiving per game was held to 27 yards on three catches. Daxx Garman passed for 242 and James Washington had five catches for 87 yards for Oklahoma State (5-3, 3-2).

r B5 HUNTINGTON, W.Va. Devon Johnson rushed for a school-record 272 yards and four touchdowns to lead No. 23 Marshall to a 35-16 win over Florida Atlantic on Saturday. Marshall (8-0, 4-0 Conference USA) overcame its first half time deficit of the season to extend its home winning streak to 12 games. Florida Atlantic (3-5, 2-2) fell to 0-5 on the road. Quarterback Rakeem Cato threw the go-ahead score late in the third quarter to extend his Bowl Subdivision record of consecutive games with a TD toss to 40. Johnson had touchdown runs of 58, 62, 66 and 7 yards. He broke the school record of 262 yards set by Ron Darby in 1988. The 240-pound Johnson needed just eight games to sur pass the 1,000-yard mark in his first season at the position. The junior had played backup tight end, linebacker and fullback earlier in his ca reer before winning the start ing running back job in August ahead of 2013 backups Steward Butler and Remi Watson. Marshall amassed 328 yards rushing. Florida Atlantic en tered the game 97th in the FBS against the run. Other than Johnson, Mar shall had trouble moving the ball against Florida Atlantic. The Thundering Herd man aged just 25 yards on the first three drives after halftime be fore Cato turned things around. Cato had completed only eight of his first 17 passes to that point. He then connected with Deontay McManus on a 39-yard pass to set up Catos 21yard scoring toss to Tommy Shuler for a 21-16 lead late in the third. Cato finished 13 of 24 for 218 yards. His completions and yards were both season lows. Florida Atlantic had little trouble moving the ball until it got inside the Marshall 20-yard line. Greg Josephs three first-half field goals help stake the Owls to a 16-14 halftime lead. Early in the fourth quarter, with Florida Atlantic drive to ward a potential go-ahead score, quarterback Jaquez Johnsons fourth-down pass from the 6 was batted down by Marshalls Darryl Roberts in the end zone. A few plays later, Devon Johnson went 66 yards up the middle to extend Marshalls lead to 28-16. He closed the scoring with his 7-yarder in the final minute. Jaquez Johnson went 19 of 37 for 179 yards, including a sec ond-quarter touchdown toss to Alex DeLeon. FAU cant hold on to lead in loss to Marshall ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. Will MacKenzie made a hole-in-one and finished with a birdie for a 5-under 65 and a share of the lead Saturday with Andrew Svoboda in the McGladrey Classic. Svoboda overcame a double bogey for a 66 and will have his best chance for his first PGA Tour win. They were at 12-under 198, though the final round at Sea Island still has the trappings of a shootout. Russell Henley, the 36-hole leader, made only one big mis take in the third round and it cost him. He hit his approach into the water on the par-5 15th for a bogey. Henley had a 68 and was one shot behind. Stewart Cink shot a 63 and was among those just three shots behind. Nine players were within four of the lead. Korda, Pace share lead in Blue Bay LPGA HAINAN ISLAND, China American Jessica Korda re bounded from an opening double bogey for a share of the lead Sat urday in the Blue Bay LPGA. Korda made seven birdies in a 14-hole stretch the last three on Nos. 14-16 and shot a 5-under 67 to match South Afri cas Lee-Anne Pace at 11-under 133. Pace had a 66. Rain washed out play Friday and forced officials to cut the event from 72 to 54 holes. Korda, the first-round leader Thursday after a 66, has two LPGA Tour victories this year. Pace, winless on the LPGA Tour, is coming off a playoff victory last week in the South African Wom ens Open. South Koreas Chella Choi was 10 under after a 66. Americans Michelle Wie and Brittany Lang and Chinas Shan shan Feng were 9 under. Olesen leads at Perth in third round PERTH, Australia Thorbjorn Olesens bunker shots and putting helped him grind out a 5-under 67 Saturday to lead the Perth Inter national golf tournament by three strokes after the third round. Olesen of Norway had six bird ies and a bogey to reach 16-under after three rounds, matching the score that won the inaugural tournament two years ago. He leads from South Koreas Sihwan Kim, who shot 69 to move to 13 under, a stroke ahead of En glands James Morrison, who also had 69 after Fridays course-re cord 63. American Peter Uihlein was the big mover Saturday, making seven birdies in an unblemished 65 to move up to outright fourth at 11-under. Former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel of South Africa (70) is seven shots off the pace entering Sundays final round. MacKenzie, Svoboda tied for lead at Sea Island Associated Press rrfnfftfbbffbrf tft ORLANDO Justin Holman passed for two touchdowns and William Stanback rushed for two more as UCF defeated Temple 34-14 on Saturday. The Knights never trailed and scored on their first three offensive possessions to build a 17-0 lead. The Owls got within 10 points late in the first half, but were held scoreless in the second half. It was the 11th straight Amer ican Athletic Conference win for the Knights. UCF (5-2, 3-0) is one of only two remaining unbeaten AAC teams, along with East Carolina. Temple (4-3, 2-2) started P.J. Walker at quarterback, but switched to Connor Reilly briefly in the third quarter. It proved to be ineffective, though, as the Owls managed just 182 yards of offense for the game. The Owls also turned it over four times. UCF came into the game hav ing scored just 16 first-quarter points in its first six games of 2014. But an inspired Knights of fense had 17 points by the end of the first 15 minutes on Saturday, and ran its lead to 27-14 at halftime against the Americans top scoring defense. The Owls defense entered the day allowing opponents only 17.2 points per game. UCF was also more balanced offensively than its been in sev eral games, using its rushing attack to open up passing lanes for Holman, who spread around 25 completions to seven differ ent receivers. The Knights 466 yards of total offense was their most since posting 556 yards in their Fiesta Bowl win over Bay lor last season. Holmans 336 yards passing was also a sea son-high. After relying almost exclu sively on the run during an 11-play, 58-yard drive to take a 17-0 lead, the Knights re sponded to Temples first score with a 54-yard touchdown pass from Holman to Breshad Perri man that stretched their lead back to 24-7. Temples special teams gave the Owls a little life and got it back to a two-score game a se ries later when Samuel Benja min came off the edge to block Caleb Houstons punt. Benja min scooped it up and ran it in for the touchdown. On the ensuing series, Hous ton had a second consecutive punt blocked this time by Temples Michael Felton.

Section CSUNDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW Ican manage a successful newspaper company and handle the stress of being barked at by politicians and newsmakers every morning of the week. But I cannot figure out where the soap comes from in the dispenser on my bathroom counter. There has always been soap in the dispenser. Press the top and out comes the liquid soap. The sun rises in the east, and soap comes out of the dispenser. Weve lived in the same house for 10 years and I have squirted soap from the same dispenser all these years. Clean hands are the key to healthy living. This week, the soap stopped. Squirting the dispenser with more muscle did not help. I stepped back from the counter and realized that I had no earthly idea of where the soap came from. I imagined my wife was involved in the process, but I had never seen it happen. I had never seen a big barrel of liquid soap anywhere around the house. Or a little barrel. I was without a clue. I went and told my wife about this great discovery, and she replied: You also dont have a clue on how to run the washing machine. Interesting point. The truth is, I dont know how many things work, and I just take them for granted. It could be considered a fault. The same is true for how we all look at complex issues such as health care, cleaning up the environment, educating our children or Gator football. We take them for granted. We expect them to work, just like my soap dispenser. We assume somebody really smart is in charge and making good decisions. Then we wake up one day to find the soap dispenser does not work and we have polluted the Crystal River; or it takes six hours to get service in the emergency room; or our kid doesnt get I promise to start paying more attention See WINDOW/ Page C3 The Chroniclewas kind enough to publish my Oct. 4 column Yes on 2, and heres why. I subsequently received personal stories on Facebook about how cannabis has helped family members with various problems such as epilepsy and cancer. I also received several comments which gave me references to some interesting things I didnt know. I will share some of them here. Its well known that John Morgan of the Morgan & Morgan law firm has largely financed the medical marijuana initiative, spending $4 million to get Amendment 2 on the ballot. His motivation, he says, is that he has seen the benefit cannabis had for his father when he was dying of cancer and his brother, rendered a paraplegic from a diving accident. Meanwhile, Las Vegas casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson opposes Amendment 2. So much, in fact, that he has contributed $4 million of his own money to defeat it. Why would a Las Vegas casino billionaire be so concerned about medical marijuana in Florida? Especially when you consider Adelson funds a medical research facility in Israel with his name on it which produced a study showing that marijuana may be useful for people with multiple sclerosis. According to a recent Vice.com article, this is the reason: Consider the fact that Adelsons casino company, the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, has desperately sought entry into Floridas lucrative table games market, which is currently controlled by the Seminole tribe of Florida. Adelsons company had lobbied furiously to build its own Vegas-style casino in Florida, but so far came up short. The Seminoles contract with the state expires next year, meaning whoever controls the governors office will have a great deal of sway in the decision. Rick Scott is firmly against Amendment 2, and a defeat of it represents a political win for him and a favor owed to Adelson. Oxycontin, one of the many legal medicines prescribed by doctors for pain, has made Purdue Pharmaceutical Company many billions of dollars since it was introduced in 1996. Drug addicts, including kids, soon discovered that crushing it and snorting it (or injecting it) produced a high similar to Profiles in hypocrisy: Amendment 2 and the paper trail Bob GoetheOTHER VOICES See GOETHE/ Page C4 Apparently we are not learning from lessons learned.Its been said that one of the definitions of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. On Dec. 17 of this year, the Harrison Act will be 100 years old. It was intended to regulate opiates and coca products. It started a drug war which is now 100 years old. It resulted in the murders of hundreds of thousands of people, millions of persons going to jail, hundreds of thousands of government employees bribed, thousands of state and local laws passed and challenged, thousands of trials and sentences. By the end of 2013 alone 111,000 were killed in the Mexico Drug War. In a 2012 column written by Richard Branson for CNN, he cited the following facts: If the global drug trade were a country, it would have one of the top 20 economies in the world;Taxing drugs would produce $46.7 billion in tax revenue; andLegalizing drugs in the U.S. would save about $41 billion a year in enforcement. Has enforcement reduced drug use? No. The United States is the No. 1 customer in illegal drug use. Wars on drugs dont work. Wars on alcohol dont work. Associated PressA dozen officers from the Vernon County Sheriffs department, West Central MEG Unit and Wisconsin DNR were involved in the investigation and bust of this La Farge, Wisconsin pot-growing operation. Some researchers believe it is far more costly to enforce drug laws than to prevent drug use. Anthony SchembriGUEST COLUMN Wars on prostitution dont work. Wars on gambling dont work. The police have been pushed into a war they did not start and cannot win. So what do we do? We throw more at it. More cops, more judges, more jails, longer sentences and more tax burdens. According to the Department of Justice, the United States has the largest prison population in the world, with about 2.3 million behind bars, with more than half a million incarcerated for drug offenses. The New York Timesreported on Oct. 16 that it now costs $100,000 per year to keep an inmate in jail in New York. More is the drug of choice and more is our response. We are doing the wrong thing with greater conviction. Is anybody taking the long view? Is there a practical solution to this war?

Page C2SUNDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2014 Our just dessertsThe president and Congress are convenient and justifiable targets for critics whether they be from right left or center. Some of us may remember a cartoon character named Pogo. One of his utterances that I remember was, We have met the enemy, and they are us. So before we get too carried away with our vitriol, let us remember who put the incompetents in office: we the people. Before we shudder about electing a leader who had absolutely no experience beyond a ward organizer, who promised transparency, who promised we could keep our doctors, remember who put him there: we the people. Before we indict the lameduck attorney general who stonewalled Congress about guns across the border, who refused to prosecute the Black Panthers for voter intimidation in Philadelphia and who has criminally ignored the constitution, remember how he got there: we the people. Before we wonder about a secretary of state who wants to be president, who lied about Benghazi and who totally bought into a failed foreign policy, remember how she got there: we the people. I could go on forever about the new welfare state, the gutting of the military, the imposition of socialized medicine, law by presidential edict, the cynical immigration tactics, the refusal to take action with the IRS, etc., but at the end of the list, I have to stop and remind myself about we the people. Until we the people demand term limits, no immunity laws for Congress, control of lobbyists and a reformed tax code, among many other things, we the people will get what we deserve.Phillip Vultaggio Hernando BYTHELEAGUE OFWOMENVOTERS OFCITRUSCOUNTYIn 1965, President Lyndon Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act (VRA) in response to widespread racial discrimination. The VRA applied to nine states, mostly in the South, and scores of counties and municipalities. It allowed for mass enfranchisement of racial minorities throughout the country; specifically, it outlawed literacy tests and other similar devices used to disenfranchise voters. It prohibited any state or local government agency from imposing any voting law that results in discrimination against racial or language minorities. Since 1965, Congress has enacted major amendments to the VRA originally set to expire in 1970. Congress expanded the VRA to explicitly ban any voting practice that had a discriminating effect. Two types of discrimination are vote denial and vote dilution. Denial of a persons right to vote is obvious, but dilution of the vote is more subtle. Vote dilution is described as the diminished strength or effectiveness of a persons vote. Gerrymandering redrawing district lines to favor one party or candidate is viewed as a method of diluting votes. In June of this year, the Supreme Court struck a major blow to a key part of the Voting Rights Act. It allowed nine states and those counties and municipalities enjoined by this act to change their election laws without advance federal approval. The main argument is that racial discrimination in voting is not a major current condition, as evidenced by the election of the first black president. Shortly after the decision, states began implementing voter identification laws and changes in voting procedures, including restrictions on early voting. Furthermore, redistricting maps would no longer need federal approval. Among the changes in those states bound by the VRA restrictions: Ohio decreased early voting days and reduced absentee balloting; North Carolina ended same-day registration, shortened early voting days, dispensed with Sunday voting and reduced funding to programs to preregister 16and 17-year-olds; Wisconsin Voter ID and residency restrictions have been implemented that cause confusion regarding voting eligibility; Texas passed one of the most restrictive voter ID laws, now being challenged in courts, which creates confusion for voters. In response to those changes, League of Women Voters of the United States President Elisabeth MacNamara had the following to say: Voter discrimination cannot be tolerated in the 21st century, and we will not remain silent as the voting rights of Americans everywhere are at risk. Thats why were pushing Congress to pass the Voting Rights Amendment Act, a flexible, modern answer to the problem of discrimination in voting. In Citrus County, early voting days have been shortened.

Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARDGerry Mulligan ....................................publisherMike Arnold ..............................................editorCharlie Brennan ........................managing editorCurt Ebitz ..................................citizen memberMac Harris ................................citizen memberRebecca Martin ........................citizen memberBrad Bautista ....................................copy chief ENDORSEMENT Crist gets nod in weak field The race for Florida governor presents voters with a difficult choice, with perhaps the weakest field of candidates in recent memory competing for the job and one of the nastiest, most personal political campaigns in the history of the state. The candidates on the ballot are incumbent Republican Gov. Rick Scott, former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist now running as a Democrat, Libertarian candidate Adrian Wyllie and two no-party candidates, Farid Khavari and Glenn Burkett. Since Wyllie is polling in single digits and the noparty candidates poll well below 1 percent, there is almost no chance any of them will be elected. This means that either Scott or Crist will become the next governor. Both men have experience in the office. Crist served one term as governor immediately before Scott was elected. Prior to being elected governor, Crist served in the Florida Senate, as education commissioner and Floridas attorney general. By contrast, Scott was elected governor with no political experience, having previously been in private business, including serving as CEO of Hospital Corporation of America, the largest private for-profit health care company in the country. Scott rode into office in the tea party wave of 2010, and once in office, began taking actions consistent with its conservative political philosophy, including rejecting $2.3 billion in federal funding for a high-speed rail project between Tampa and Orlando, signing legislation requiring that individuals applying for welfare submit to drug testing and declining to expand Medicaid coverage provided under the Affordable Care Act. Scott also took actions that have weakened enforcement of environmental laws and cut support for clean water and conservation programs. These actions include forcing the states five regional water management districts to significantly reduce their budgets, appointing a Jacksonville shipping executive as secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and asking the legislature for smaller budgets for DEP each year except this one. However, with time in office, Scott has seemed to become less rigid in his approach to matters such as education and the environment. Earlier this year, he announced a $1 billion environmental protection program, and he has supported teacher raises and more funding to make college more affordable for people from low to middle income families. Whether these represent a genuine change in priorities or an election-year conversion is open to debate. As a former businessman, Scott came into office seemingly focused primarily on cutting government costs and creating a positive climate for business. His administration has achieved some success in this effort. According to a recent survey of 356 corporate executives by Development Counsellors International, Florida ranks second only to Texas as having the best business climate. While Scott has modified some of his positions, Crists shifting positions on issues leave the impression that he has not established core principles, but rather is a populist who is adept at reading the political winds. After serving as Republican governor, he elected to run for the U.S. Senate rather than run for re-election. After initially leading in the race for the 2010 Republican nomination, he began losing ground to tea party favorite Marco Rubio, and in April 2010, he left the Republican party and ran for senate as an independent. He was defeated by Rubio in a three-way race, and in December 2012 Crist joined the Democratic Party. Crist has a history of supporting public education. He served as state education secretary under former governor and education reform proponent Jeb Bush, and as governor he took actions that promoted public education, though he also supported programs that funded charter schools. For example, in 2007, he proposed a 19 percent increase in education spending, and in 2010 Crist vetoed Senate Bill 6, which attempted to tie teacher compensation to student performance. However, he also signed legislation pushed by then-state Sen. Rubio that expanded tax credits to fund voucher programs. While Crist was governor, Florida moved up in K-12 education rankings, moving up from 14th to 10th place nationally based on financing and achievement. In this years campaign, he has made support for public education a key part of his platform, and said he would fight voucher expansion. The other key part of Crists 2014 platform is restoring funding for environmental programs such as Florida Forever that were cut under Scott, and reducing pollution from sugar cane growth and processing in the Everglades. As governor, he supported the purchase of large tracts of land from sugar producers to return it to a natural state and help clean up the everglades, and as candidate, he has vowed to address further everglades cleanup. While some of Scotts position on issues such as education and the environment have softened, Crist has more consistently supported education and environmental protection. Neither candidate is without significant flaws, but given the current challenges facing the state, in a narrow decision, the editorial board of theChroniclerecommends voters support Charlie Crist.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014 C3 Big ears? Thats not what I wanted to hear High school homecoming season is upon us once more, and were beginning to see some photos in theChronicleof members of the courts. The bright eyes and the big smiles on the faces of these young people always bring a smile to my face. I dont dwell on memories from high school, but once in a while, a catalyst such as the aforementioned pictures will spark a recollection. For a brief instant I might find myself again in the fall of 1962 standing at midfield as a member of the Pasco High School homecoming court. Self-analysis is that while my high school experiences were very pleasant, and at times exciting, they were lacking one major element Cheryl wasnt there with me. Our ages are such that she would have been a freshman when I was a senior, but geography placed us at different schools. When Cheryl was 11 years old, her family moved to Ridge Manor, which is in the southeast corner of Hernando County. I grew up in Lacoochee, which is in the northeast corner of Pasco County. Based on our places of residence, Cheryl attended schools in Brooksville and, after finishing my years at Lacoochee Elementary, I went to schools in Dade City. Cheryl and I lived within four miles of each other for more than six years without meeting. Sometimes, I lament this and express my thought as to how I believe it would have been love at first sight, even when she was 11 and I was 14. My sweetheart doesnt agree. Her take on it is that the timing for us was just as it should have been, and God, in His infinite wisdom, guided our steps away from each other until the time was right for us to come together. Shes probably right. She usually is. Back to the homecoming photos: Way back in 1962, a picture of the Pasco High School homecoming court appeared in the local newspaper. After we were married, while browsing through some scrapbooks, Cheryl spotted the clipping of that event. She smiled broadly and snickered, I remember this picture! We quickly established that she had noticed me before we met when she saw the picture in the paper. I waited for her to tell how handsome she had thought I was in my brand-new suit, but no, she said, I noticed your ears. My ears? She continued, I remember thinking what big ears that fellow has! That might have been a good line for Red Riding Hood while she was interrogating the wolf who was masquerading as her grandma, but I wasnt at all pleased. We laughed together, analyzed the picture and agreed on two things: the lighting did me no favors and my face needed to fill out some in order to accommodate my ears. As I said, Cheryl is usually right about such things, and no doubt she was right about when we were supposed to become a couple. After all, timing is very important, especially when you are hoping for love at first sight and you have big ears!Fred Brannen, an Inverness resident, has been a Chronicle columnist since 1988 and is the author of the novel At the Bottom of Biscayne Bay. He may be contacted at fbrannenjr@gmail.com or via brannenbooksllc.com. Fred BrannenA SLICE OF LIFE and Congress, authored in 2009 by the Criminal Justice Transition Coalition a collaboration between The Sentencing Project and 20 other prominent national organizations for the incoming Obama administration, contains comprehensive policy recommendations at every stage of the justice system. It states: Americans of all political stripes, and especially professionals with experience in every aspect of the criminal justice system, recognize that the system is failing too many, costing too much, and helping too few. This comes at a time when legislatures across the United States are beginning to regulate cannabis use. This may be in violation of the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution, which establishes that the U.S Constitution, federal statues and treaties are the supreme law of the land. Furthermore, the Supreme Court has declared that the states do not have the authority to nullify federal law. Apparently that has not been heard in Colorado and Washington. In his 2009 book Uncovering the Politics of the Poppy, Pierre-Arnaud Chouvy says: Dollar for dollar, providing treatment to drug users is 10 times more effective at reducing drug abuse than drug interdiction schemes and 23 times more effective than trying to eradicate coca at its source. One dollar spent on prevention saves $7 in crime cost. What does this mean? It means we should be helping people addicted to drugs break their habits rather than putting users in prison. The policy we should favor is the one that works. Instead, we do the opposite we support the policy that doesnt work. During the 1960s, as heroin use spread, arrests failed to curb drug sales and use. Punishment also fails as a deterrent. Studies in operant conditioning have established that punishment increases the power of resistance. Politicians afraid of being labeled soft on drugs vote for being smart on drug interdiction. Former San Jose Police Chief John McNamara, writing in the February 1996 National Review, said All the police, armies, prisons and executions in the world cannot impede a market with that kind of tax-free profit margin. Look at drug raids. They demonstrate to the public that law enforcement is doing its job. What is the result? Drug raids have an impact on supply and demand. The law of supply and demand tells us if a commodity is scarce, the price of that product increases. So a $15 bag of heroin will cost $20. Who does the same thing and expect different results? The average burglar commits 10 to 12 burglaries a day. They steal $1,000 to realize $200 from their fence. Now they have to steal $1,500 because the cost of the drugs has gone up. Street crime goes up, larcenies go up and theft goes up. So we need more, more police. One could reasonably argue that drug raids yesterday, today and 100 years from now will increase crime. Therefore, vigorous law enforcement means higher prices and higher revenues for drug dealers. I will quote from the logic of Tyler Cowen and Alex Tabarrok in Modern Principles of Economics: The more effective prohibition is at raising costs, the greater are drug industry revenues. So, more effective prohibition means that drug sellers have more money to buy guns, pay bribes, fund the dealers, and develop new technologies in drug delivery (like crack cocaine). It is hard to overcome an opponent that gets stronger the more you strike at it. The Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) program has been adopted by 80 percent of our nations schools. It impacts 36 million kids and cost $1.13 billion. Its not working. A 2003 report by the U.S. General Accounting Office, which studied six long-term studies on schools using the DARE program, found no significant differences in illicit drug use between students who received DARE in the fifth or sixth grade and students who did not. To continue to spend and waste precious drug prevention money on these kinds of programs without measuring outcomes is unconscionable. The politicians and law enforcement officials do not read the research, so we do the same thing with greater conviction. Who does the same things and expect different results? Instead, we have spawned a drug enforcement/treatment complex so hooked on government dollars that the anti-drug crusade has become a vested interest. We are working for a better yesterday. It is the illegality that permits the obscene markup, enriching drug traffickers, distributors, dealers, corrupt law enforcement, lawyers, judges, politicians, bankers, businessmen. It begs the question: How do we change this? The strongest force in government is inertia. In the Smart on Crime report, the Criminal Justice Transition Coalition included the following among its recommendations to overcome these challenges:Eliminate the crack cocaine sentencing disparity; Expand alternatives to incarceration;Fund prisoner reentry through the Second Chance Act; Extend federal voting rights to people released from prison; Restore welfare and food stamp eligibility to individuals with drug felony convictions; Analyze and reduce unwarranted racial and ethnic disparity in the federal judicial system. Smart on Crime goes on to state: Americans of all political stripes, and especially professionals with experience in every aspect of the criminal justice system, recognize that the system is failing too many, costing too much, and helping too few, said the report. The wealth of this country is not in its banks, its in its justice, its ethics and its integrity. The United States Drug Policy and does not mention the word corruption. I served as the deputy chief of the narcotics bureau in Brooklyn, New York, and went through Frank Serpico and the French Connection. I saw officers commit suicide and go to jail after I arrested them. Serving as the United Nations representative of the International Narcotic Enforcement Officers Association, I authored a treaty on drugs. I saw the deputy chief of the Mexico police build an $8 million home. It produced a heated exchange between me and the ambassador of Mexico. He said that when the mayor of Washington, D.C., uses cocaine on television, we should not criticize Mexicos. My experience earned me the right to comment on the future of drug trafficking. Branson took his business acumen recommendations to the drug war and said: In business, if one of the companies is failing, they take steps to identify and solve the problem. What they dont do is continue failing strategies that cost huge sums of money and exacerbate the problem. Rather than continuing on the disastrous path of the war on drugs, we need to look at what works and what doesnt in terms of real evidence and data. Perhaps we need the businessmen of this country to take on the drug problem. How would Lee Iacocca handle it? He fixed Chrysler. Perhaps criminologists should have a turn. We need alternative thinking. We need to hold up a mirror and look at what we are doing. You cant fix things by using the thinking that created it. Sometimes revolutions happen in one day; sometimes it takes decades. We are running to catch up instead of getting ahead of the curves. The future plans of world leaders change our culture. Evidence, something we should use for our opinions and decisions, demonstrates that it may be for the better. I have conflicting opinions. But I look at the prohibition of alcohol that made organized crime a fortune; now we have legal alcohol. I remember arresting gamblers in Brooklyn; now we have the lottery. I am reaching a conclusion based on evidence I dont like. But I end with a cautionary quote I learned in high school, attributed to Emile Durkheim: Mans appetite, freed from internal control, becomes insatiable. I do not advocate the legalization of drugs. I advocate looking at the research and using that to govern public policy. I advocate being smart on crime. I advocate measuring outcomes to see what works and what doesnt. Most of all, I wish stupidity caused pain. Anthony J. Schembri is a Sir Leon Radzinowicz professor of criminal law, criminology and police science at the University of Florida and former police commissioner of Rye, N.Y. and corrections commissioner of New York City. Special to the ChronicleAnthony Schembri, right, in the 1980s as police commissioner of Rye, New York, meets with U.N. SecretaryGeneral Javier Perez de Cuellar, left, and Andre Bossard, secretary-general INTERPOL to discuss global criminality issues such as drugs, prison conditions and terrorism. SCHEMBRIContinued from Page C1 accepted to the University of Florida. We have created a deep mat of pollution across the bottom of the Crystal River. Our public hospital is now being sold to the largest forprofit company in America because an internal dispute caused a major distraction. And the Gators cant even beat Missouri. We took for granted that bad stuff wouldnt happen, but it did. Unfortunately, there are no easy answers for the complex problems. (Although as a Gator fan, I do have a simple solution that would start us in the right direction.) During this election season, we often hear the politicians telling us that the solutions are simple and they hold the golden nuggets of truth in their brains. They dont. I cant fill the soap dispenser because I never paid attention where the soap comes from. Likewise, we cant quickly solve complex problems because we havent really paid attention for years. (Consider funding for paving neighborhood roads or keeping the county fire services running efficiently). I need to pay more attention. We all do.Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle.

heroin. It is so good that people addicted to it would turn to heroin as a cheaper substitute when they couldnt get it. Oxycontin has caused thousands of fatal drug overdoses, and contributed to the addiction of probably millions of people in the U.S. In 2007, the company was forced to pay $600 million for misrepresenting the drug with the intention of expanding its sales. Purdues three top executives were charged with felonies and paid fines of several million dollars each as well as forced to do 400 hours of community service in drug rehab clinics. Purdue Pharmaceutical continues to make billions of dollars a year producing and selling narcotics. Recently, Morgan debated Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd. Sheriff Judd is staunchly opposed to any marijuana decriminalization efforts. According to the Orlando Sentinel, since 2007, the Polk County Sheriffs Office has taken in over $1.2 million from seizing assets from people. The Federal Assets Forfeiture Law allows police to seize cars, money and houses just on the suspicion that crimes may have been involved in association with those assets. The police, even without any solid proof of a crime or conviction, can keep the assets. There are numerous substantiated cases of misuse of this questionable practice related to marijuana. Steve Oates, an Arizona man who was prescribed medical marijuana, had his house raided for possessing slightly more than his permit allowed. This resulted in having his house and bank accounts seized to the tune of $455,000. There is another story of a 69-yearold widow, Elizabeth Young, respected in her community and active in her church in Philadelphia. Her son was caught selling marijuana on her property and arrested. Even though she was not charged of any crime, her house was confiscated and she is now homeless. They also confiscated her car. Some argue that rather than legalizing medical marijuana, we should instead just let the pharmaceutical companies get involved. I give you two examples of that fallacy: Hepatitis C is a condition affecting about 3.2 million Americans. It is a chronic, progressive disease that can eventually lead to cirrhosis, liver cancer and death. In fact, it now kills more Americans than AIDS. Last year, a company called Gilead Sciences developed a pill that is 90 percent effective in curing hepatitis C with minimal side effects. Because the company holds the patent on this pill and the FDA has not released any similar drugs, the company set the price tag at $1,000 per pill. If you have hepatitis C and want an effective cure, it would cost $84,000 to $168,000 in this country! Another example is Marinol. This is a synthetic THC compound developed for nausea and poor appetite in AIDS patients. Many formulations were tested (there are many forms of THC) but were rejected because they had the side effect of causing euphoria and laughter. The present rendition is devoid of any of these undesirable side effects. Physicians I talk to are afraid to prescribe it. Patients I talk to tell me it doesnt work anyway, compared to the natural product. Floridians have good reason to doubt the motives behind political decisions and all the hidden agendas behind the scenes of an issue. Stay informed. When you see the anti-Amendment 2 ads appearing on TV, or hear that an organization does not support Amendment 2, just follow the money. Bob Goethe is an anesthesiologist in Citrus County. He lives in Crystal River. Dont pass medical marijuanaI would hope our electorate would not vote for the medical marijuana amendment. Theres no way that putting smoke into your lungs is any healthier. And also, the benefit from marijuana can be extracted and put into pill form. You can see the debacle in Colorado; now they are putting marijuana in candies for kids. They cant control it. Another thing this is going to benefit is the trial lawyers. It gives them one more avenue for lawsuits. And Morgan and Morgan, as we all know, is in the business of lawsuits. I would respect and feel sorry for the people that are in severe pain. But again, the benefits of marijuana can be extracted and put into a pill form. It does not need to be smoked and have smoke go into the lungs of our young people, who will get it because anybody can sell it. And if they cant sell it, theyll be giving it away. So vote no on the marijuana amendment.What are you afraid of?Marijuana is everywhere. People want it, whether its to smoke or for their pain, for medical use. The fact is, people want it. Weve got people dying every day from prescription drugs and from alcohol and were worried about some marijuana that has a track record of zero deaths in this whole country. What are people scared of?Marijuana a helpful drugIt was a pleasure to read the medical marijuana article regarding Mr. Hayden Fouke (Oct. 23, page A3). Hes an inspiration and hopefully he will also be an educator to people who dont understand that marijuana is not a bad drug. Its a helpful drug and it helps many, many, many people. Vote yes on Amendment 2Who are you to deprive someone elses right to access medical marijuana that alleviates pain without resorting to addictive and costly pharmaceuticals? People die from driving, smoking and drinking, but no one has died from marijuana use. Vote yes on Amendment 2.Marijuana has medical usesHere you go, Jimmie T. Smith and anybody else that doesnt want the medical marijuana: Here is ex-Gov. Gary Johnson; he is the CEO of Cannabis Sativa Inc., and he went, they brought him out and he says that marijuana will help, it has a positive effect against Ebola. And the story says they know hes trying to promote his own company, but hey, if you want to give these Ebola patients a chance to fight back, what the hell?Wont be controlledIts interesting to read about this Amendment 2 issue now where they want to make marijuana available for medicinal uses only. And if we think that people are going to be able to do this without any repercussions about people illegally getting a hold of it through pharmacies or through doctors. And we have seen in the past, there are lot of, there are many doctors out there who are interested in a dollar more than anything else and drugs are made available to a lot of people until theyre caught. Theres case after case in the paper over the past several years about doctors prescribing drugs illegally to people who were not in need of them. So this is going to be an issue, I think. Yeah, part of it is fine, you know, if it helps and its going to work. But tell me how its going to be controlled where somebody isnt going to start illegally selling it.Start doing your researchThis is in reference to the debate the other day with John Morgan and Rep. Jimmie T. Smith. I would just like to know where Jimmie Smith got his knowledge of the marijuana on Amendment 2. Ive helped out in crisis centers with mental health and drug evaluation and marijuana is not an addicting drug. Hed better start doing his research before he starts saying something. Marijuana, again, is not addictive.

Just keep spendingWith our country $17 trillion in debt and increasing with every passing day, our noble leaders in the White House continue to borrow more money from foreign countries with no worry or concern as to how the hell we will ever pay it back. Point made is the recent news out of the press that our secretary of state (John Kerry) just made a decision to give the government of Palestine $212 million to help rebuild that war-torn region. Note: That area was the recent area of war that the Israelis and Hamas (Palestinians) were shooting rockets at each others for over a month before the Israelis laid waste to that region in due cause protecting their own! Remember now that we had nothing to do with this war, but yet our leaders in the White House feel we are responsible to rebuild this area. I just dont get it! Even if we went to war with this country, why on Earth would we pay to rebuild what we did to win a war? Lets think about this for a moment. We had nothing to do with the war the Palestinians and the Israelis just fought, yet we are going to pay $212 million in aid to help the Palestinians to rebuild their destroyed country? I just dont get it! Seems we need to rethink our foreign policy and stop just giving our taxpayers dollars to countries that hate us. When was the last time a foreign country came to our time of need after any major damage from a hurricane, flooding, forest fires, etc.? We have unemployed, homeless, veterans needing medical assistance, etc. We need to take care of our own first and most before giving anything away to others. This White House thinks as if it was its own money it is giving away. I think any money given as foreign aid should first be approved by us taxpayers first after all we are paying for it!Tom J.

In 2014, we have a pig in a poke; Amendment 2, which makes access to medical marijuana a constitutional right. Medical marijuana is already Florida law. So why the rush to amend the Constitution? Look closely. Amendment 2 allows marijuana be given to anyone with debilitating medical conditions, like those associated with cancer. But also included are other debilitating conditions for which the physician believes that the medical use of marijuana would likely outweigh the potential health risks of the patient. After reading that over a couple of times, doesnt it appear that if physicians consider chronic back and shoulder pain or anxiety debilitating, the only barrier to physicians recommending pot would be the patients ability to tolerate it? If its to be medical marijuana, why not specify a low amount of THC and an elevated level of CBD, the component that relieves pain and nausea and allows you to drive to work? And when John for the people Morgan comes to Citrus County to debate the issue, why bring along a group of supporters from Orlando who prevent Rep. Jimmie Smith from telling Citrus County folks whats wrong with it? Is it even remotely possible that Amendment 2 is an underhanded attempt to legalize marijuana? And if thats true, doesnt putting it on the ballot turn out the liberal pro-Crist vote? And why be underhanded? Unless, of course, theres the possibility that Florida voters dont want to legalize the stuff. Now, what would make someone think that voters would be so foolish as to buy into all this? Did I mention the pregnant pig thing?

You report things; nothings done if its not in a big subdivision (such as) Beverly Hills, Green Acres, Meadowcrest or some of those other bigger areas. We like the old, small areas.God bless youMy sincere thanks to the lady that left money with the cashier to pay for my groceries in Save-A-Lot yesterday, Oct. 17. May the good Lord bless you for your kindness.Crists fan baseAfter reading about that debate the other night between Crist and Scott, I was really impressed to find out that Crist has at least one fan, so I think its pretty neat.Get involvedNow I have to laugh. The county took down the fence on County Road 486 and now all of a sudden you get individual crybabies saying that they were never asked. They have a homeowners association there. I dont live there; I live in Homosassa. But they have a homeowners association there. If you dont go to the meetings, then guess what? Your opinion doesnt count.Whats your plan?I appreciate the negative comments in Sound Off regarding problems and issues. I would also hope that you would share equal time with editorials outlying solutions and not just problems.Tick dilemmaI just read Jane Webers article (Oct. 19 HomeFront) on those horrible beggars tick weeds. They dont beg; they attack. If the roadsides would or could be mowed right now while the weed is in the flower stage, I believe it would save the hassle with those awful brown needle-like seeds. They are doubly bad getting on pets. And once the seed gets in your yard, its never-ending getting them out.Great job, KeyThis is about the Key Training Center. I would like to put in the paper that Key Training Center is not just a thrift store, but a great thrift store. I had the opportunity to have a tour of the Lecanto campus Friday and was so impressed with the employees, the buildings, the cleanliness and how everything is about making the mentally challenged happy and comfortable. It is a wonderful organization. They use your donations the way you would like to see them be used. I could see that everyone there is happy with their accomplishments and proud, as they should be. They do a great job and I would just like to say, Great job, Key! Calling for fiscal responsibilityI am calling about the 1cent sales tax increase that is on the ballot. Let me remind the voters that Citrus County already has levied a 12-cent-per-gallon fuel tax. This is the highest allowed by Florida statutes, which surpasses most counties in Florida. The 12-cent fuel tax that we currently pay for with every gallon of gas we pump provides the county with over $9 million until year 2040. If the county would use our money more wisely and stop hiring consultants for every small decision, stop installing inferior fencing on (County Road) 486, then ripping it out, we would have extra money to afford more road maintenance. Who authorized 72 streetlamps within one mile on Deltona Boulevard? There isnt even a house. On Pine Ridge Boulevard, there are many houses and they dont have a single lamp. We need some fiscal responsibility, not another tax.My apologiesI would like to apologize to a Jehovahs Witness representative that called here. He said they were reaching people by phone because they cant get around, you know, knocking on the door. Anyway, I was rather curt to him, and, as a Christian, I feel bad that I said, I go to church and Im not interested, and I hung up. So I would like to apologize to him. I assume he would read the paper. Thank you for your service that we can sound off about things like that. Someone should direct trafficIm calling the Chronicle in reference to Forest Ridge Elementary School. They had a ceremony there this morning and all these cars are parked on the side of the road and upon, I guess, leaving the ceremony, all these people are trying to back out into the road, walking along the road. You know, a couple of people almost got hit. Cars almost backed up into the road. Youd think the school would say, Look, were having a ceremony here. Call the sheriffs department to direct traffic and direct the people to stop, go, whatever. I mean its a madhouse. You mean to tell me the school, they cant use common sense and think, Hey, we have all these vehicles out there and we need someone to monitor the traffic. Like it like it wasIn the Saturday paper (Oct. 18). Thank you, Mr. McNulty, for your insights and your letter to the editor about watching for the Zimmerman Agency. Some of us have been here 30 or 40 years. We like it the way it was then and the way it still is. We had people in the county offices who could do the researches themselves. We had county commissioners who were local and cared and kept it the way it was. Not all people want it. The big subdivisions get everything now. We live on a deadend street in Old Homosassa. We cant get our roads repaired. People can move in, put their junkyards in our yards. County commissioners come out and look and nothings done. Neither deserves itIm calling about the debate yesterday about the governorship the other day between Crist and Scott there, about the he did this, about the he did that. But neither one of thems talking about (what) hes going to do. Neither one of them deserve the position, talking about he did this he did that, blah, blah, blah. None of them say what theyll get done with this state, none of them.Babies in chargeWe were watching the other night on the debate between Charlie Crist and Rick Scott. Well, that goes to show you we do have babies operating our country, especially when somebody throws a tantrum over somebody having a fan and he aint and said, I dont have one. Thats pretty low, Rick Scott. What a baby. A little fan.No longer neededThe two governors, the governor and ex-governor, last night really showed what politics really is. Its a nasty, worthless game of men and sometimes women. Do they really think thats what the people want is for them to get up there and act like that? Politics has outlasted its usefulness in this country.Not a fanIn the Rick Scott-Charlie Crist debate that was on TV, can you believe that Rick Scott would delay a talk because Charlie Crist had a fan, an electronic fan on there? If he can delay a debate and cry about it, whats he going to do in a real crisis? And people would vote for somebody like that?

Section DSUNDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Bruce WilliamsSMART MONEY DEAR BRUCE: I bought a used car from a dealership. Not long after I bought the car, the financial picture changed. I overpaid for a 3-year-old car with 30,000 miles on it, and I financed the car for $18,000. I am barely able to make the almost $400-amonth payment. Now I am trying to figure out a way to unload the car and get the $17,900 or so I still owe on it so I can pay off the bank, get out from under and regroup. What recourse, if any, do I have, or am I into this thing for the next six years, since that was the term of the agreement? What can I do short of a repossession, which I am reluctant to do because, unless I am mistaken, that would be a huge black mark against my credit. What are your thoughts on this? N.A. DEAR N.A.: I can sympathize with your situation, but how did things go so bad so quick? There are only one or two possibilities for you, and neither of them is particularly attractive. The first possibility is to let the car be repossessed and youre right, that is going to do a real number on your credit. I would think very carefully before I let it go on repossession. Second is to borrow money so you can make the payment, then pay the car off or sell it. This would be your best alternative. DEAR BRUCE: How can one determine if a dear friend has died? I lost contact with my friend years ago. His telephone and address are no longer current. He had a serious health problem and I fear he passed. How can I know for sure? James DEAR JAMES: There are a number of ways to locate your friend and find out if he is no longer with us. This can be a difficult task, but one with very little cost involved. You didnt mention if he lived near you. If so, you can ask around the neighborhood Bad timing on car purchase poses a challenge See MONEY/ Page D3 Associated PressThe body of Maria Fernandes, 32, rests in a casket during her funeral service Friday, Sept. 5, in Newark, N.J. Fernandes died while napping in her car between one of her three jobs. Police say it appears Fernandes was overcome by a deadly mixture of carbon monoxide and fumes from an overturned gasoline container. From job to job to job, a life lived and lostADAMGELLER Associated PressELIZABETH, N.J.The fumes, reeking of gasoline, poured from the white Kia SUV as soon as an emergency medical technician broke one of the rear windows. Inside, the body of a dark-haired young woman with a beauty mark on her left cheek reclined in the drivers seat, keys dangling from the ignition. But who was she? How was it that her life had ended here, in the corner of a convenience store parking lot, less than a mile south of Newark Liberty International Airports runways? Waiting for the vapors to clear so they could search her belongings, police noted the most obvious clue: She was wearing a familiar whiteand-brown uniform. By that night, co-workers and friends had identified her as Maria Leonor Fernandes, 32 years old and single, who worked minimum-wage jobs at three nearby Dunkin Donuts shops often grabbing an hour or two of sleep in her car between shifts. Within days, Fernandes was being mourned as a tragic heroine, a victim of our times. Far beyond the Newark neighborhood where she rented a basement room with bath for $550 a month, her death became fodder for online commentary. People speculated, mistakenly, that she had been living in the U.S. illegally, or had committed suicide. Mostly, they pointed to her as a casualty of modern economics that forced someone to work so hard for so little money. The death of Maria Fernandes demands a call to action, a leader of the AFSCME labor union wrote in an online editorial, days after her death. By the time friends filed past the open casket in which Fernandes was laid out in a sequined, scarlet dress, some had had enough. There was more to her life, they said, than the way she lost it. The Maria Fernandes they wanted to remember was kind, perhaps too generous, and loved to talk so much so that a family she once lived with nicknamed her Radio. Her adoration of Michael Jackson was so intense that when the singer died in 2009, she called her boss, sobbing, to tell him she needed time off to fly to California for the funeral even though she knew he was vacationing in Turkey and the hour was growing late. Fernandes worked hard, she died tragically, but she was no martyr. Maria did not lose! a friend, Rochelle Sylvestre, said in her eulogy. Society has a way of looking down at people who try to make ends meet, who seek above the minimum wage. Maria won that battle! She is still winning!Maria Fernandes working life tracked a carefully choreographed schedule. From 2 to 9 p.m. most days she staffed the counter at a Dunkin kiosk inside Newarks main train station. Then she headed to a second shop, open around the clock in downtown Linden, where she worked from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. On Saturdays and Sundays, she added an 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. shift at a third shop in Harrison, picking up additional hours when asked. In Harrison, she usually worked at the sandwich preparation station, chatting with fellow employees, sometimes showing them snapshots. Alaaddin Abuawada, a co-worker who also holds a second job at a thrift shop, said Fernandes often appeared exhausted. When business was slow, she slumped on cartons in the kitchen for 15-minute naps. She slept in her car before heading to her next shift. When co-workers called her name for help, she jokingly answered, No. Abuawada said he once told her that she was killing herself. She said, I need the money. I have a lot of bills, he recalled. Fernandes was not a complainer, but this was not the life she had expected. More than a decade ago, she told friends she wanted to be an actress, had black-and-white publicity photos taken and took the train to New York to seek auditions. She wrote her sister in Portugal that she wanted to be a police officer. She talked about going to school to be a beautician. And, before Michael Jackson died, she spoke often about her desire to meet him. She would say she was going to marry him, friend Cristina Ribau Orama said. And the way she said it, it was like it was going to happen. Fernandes had come a long way to pursue those dreams. She was born in Fall River, Massachusetts, to Portuguese immigrant parents. Her father, Antonio, worked as a welder and his wife, 28 years his junior, worked in a factory. When Fernandes was 11 her father retired and moved the family to Gafanha da Encarnacao, his hometown of 5,000 on Portugals Atlantic coast. She was kind of lost in this small town which was not hers, said Olinda Moreira, a half-sister who lives in the nearby city of Aveiro. Fernandes Portuguese was shaky and colored heavily by the dialect of her mothers hometown in the Azores islands. It was hard finding friends in a town where most younger residents had moved away for work. Her father was a stern disciplinarian with little patience for a daughter who spent hours watching The X-Files on television; he frowned upon her talk of moving back to the United States, alone, at least until See FINAL/ Page D3 Friend Glen Carter, a 33-year-old Army veteran, holds a flower Sept. 5 as he stands over the grave after a funeral service for Fernandes in Linden, N.J.

I was under the assumption that a surviving spouse receives the higher of the Social Security amounts. Not so in my case. I am receiving $125 less than my husbands awarded amount. When I went to my local Social Security office, they told me that they subtract my amount from his, use some formula and I receive that amount. This makes a big difference in my budget. Can you explain this? M.W. DEAR M.W.: There is no way I can explain the rationale of the Social Security Administration. I do know, however, that in the event that you cant get any satisfaction from Social Security, there are many attorneys who specialize in representing folks such as yourself. Generally these guys get paid only if they manage to increase your income. Its certainly worth pursuing. The formula that is used by Social Security is absolutely mind-boggling! I have never seen one of these situations that the average person, myself included, could understand. DEAR BRUCE: What is the best way to get my credit score higher? Its currently at 700. Are there any tricks to giving it a big boost? Gina DEAR GINA: The only trick is to use good judgment. There is no reason to go out and start borrowing money just to build up a credit environment that reflects well upon you. Most important is to continue doing well in terms of meeting your obligations. Its a slow process, but if you continue to make your payments on time, youll find your credit score will creep up.Send questions to bruce@brucewilliams.com.

Healthgrades evaluated nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 33 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions and identified the bestperforming hospitals within each procedure. The achievements are part of findings released online and in the Healthgrades 2015 Report to the Nation, which demonstrates how clinical performance differs dramatically between hospitals and the impact that this variation may have on health outcomes and organizational costs. For example, from 2011-13, if all hospitals as a group performed similarly to hospitals receiving five stars as a group, on average 228,426 lives could potentially have been saved and 169,298 complications could potentially have been avoided. Citrus Memorial outperforms other hospitals in the nation in both cardiac and spine surgery, and as a result has been recognized with the 2015 Healthgrades Cardiac Surgery Excellence and Spine Surgery Excellence awards. In Florida alone, 159 hospitals were analyzed in orthopedics. Many provide high-quality care, but only one stood out for its consecutive years of nationally recognized outcomes. Citrus Memorial is the only hospital in Florida to be a recipient of the Healthgrades Spine Surgery Excellence Award for eight years in a row and, in addition, is the only hospital in Florida to be named among the top 10 percent in the nation for spine surgery for 10 years in a row. For its analysis, Healthgrades evaluated approximately 40 million Medicare-patient records for nearly 4,500 short-term acute care hospitals nationwide, assessing hospital performance relative to each of 33 common conditions and procedures. Healthgrades recognizes a hospitals quality achievements for cohort-specific performance, specialty area performance, and overall clinical quality. Individual procedure or condition cohorts are designated as 5-star (statistically better than expected), 3-star (statistically as expected) and 1-star (statistically worse than expected) categories. Detailed performance information, such as cohort-specific outcomes data and quality achievements, as well as more information on the Healthgrades 2015 Report to the Nation, including the complete methodology, can be found at www.healthgrades.com/quality.Kinnard Chiropractic staff completes taping classKinnard Chiropractic announces that Amelia Brown, PTA, Carolyn Herbert LMT and Rebekah Potter, CPT, successfully completed the Manual Therapy & Kinesiology Taping class on Oct. 12.Oak Hill Hospital receives chest pain center accreditationOak Hill Hospital announces that it has received full accreditation with PCI from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care (SCPC). Heart attacks are the leading cause of death in the United States, with 600,000 people dying annually of heart disease. More than five million Americans visit hospitals each year with chest pain. SCPCs goal is to significantly reduce the mortality rate of these patients by teaching the public to recognize and react to the early symptoms of a possible heart attack, reduce the time that it takes to receive treatment, and increase the accuracy and effectiveness of treatment. The Accredited Chest Pain Centers protocoldriven and systematic approach to patient management allows physicians to reduce time to treatment during the critical early stages of a heart attack, and to better monitor patients when it is not clear whether or not they are having a coronary event. Such observation helps ensure that patients are neither sent home too early nor needlessly admitted. SCPCs accreditation process ensures that centers meet or exceed quality-of-care measures in acute cardiac medicine. BUSINESS DIGEST MONEYContinued from Page D1 she was 18. In the summer of 1995, Fernandes was biking through the village when she spotted a Volkswagen Jetta with New Jersey license plates and introduced herself to owner Jose Ribau, visiting his hometown from Newark. That seeded friendships with Ribaus daughters, one the same age as Fernandes and the other four years younger, renewed each July when they returned to Portugal. Six years later, Fernandes appeared without any notice at the Ribaus grayshingled house in north Newark, lugging a suitcase. She was 19. She said, Oh, Im here from Portugal. I wanted to come to America, Orama recalled, with a bemused smile. She always talked about coming to the U.S. It was just a matter of time.Fernandes went back to Portugal once, for three months, to work at a bakery her father had opened. But then she returned to New Jersey for good. Eventually, she found a job behind the counter at Calandras bakery, where she made conversation with customers in Spanish and French as well as English and Portuguese and bought coworkers birthday and holiday gifts, like a Betty Boop lava lamp for her supervisor. Fernandes was a dedicated worker, well-liked on the afternoon shift. But in 2010 managers noticed when she began talking about needing more money to help support a new boyfriends children and took on a second job at a Dunkin Donuts shop. Soon, she was coming in late. She wouldnt show up, said Billy Ulkumen, the bakerys manager. Supervisors talked to Fernandes about her lateness. Eventually, she decided to quit, he said. She had met the boyfriend online. Posting a comment on the MySpace page of an actor, Don Henrie who played a Vampire character on a short-lived reality TV series Mad Mad House Fernandes connected with a fellow fan, Richard Culhane. When Culhane lost his New York construction job a few months later, Fernandes urged him to move to Newark, though theyd never met. She found him an apartment and paid his first months rent. Eventually they moved in together, with Fernandes picking up the $600 monthly expense, nearly double her previous rent, he said. Culhane still sounds perplexed by her generosity. She bought a tent and explained that it was for a homeless man she saw near work. When Culhanes mother died, Fernandes bought him and his three sons suits for the funeral. After they broke up last year she continued to stop by with videogames for the boys. Before she left, she was paying almost all of it, Culhane said of the couples bills. She was like, Ill take care of you, he said. It was not always smooth. Culhane said Fernandes was fond of his boys, but was overwhelmed by the noise they caused. In 2011, the couples landlord filed eviction papers when Fernandes fell behind, although she was able to work out a restitution plan. A neighbor says the couple fought frequently, sometimes leaving Fernandes in tears. Culhanes three young sons are from an earlier marriage. He said a state youth protection worker told him that if he wanted custody he needed a bigger apartment. He and Fernandes found a three-bedroom for $1,100 a month and she took on a second job supplementing pay from the bakery with earnings at a Dunkin Donuts to cover bills, he said. When she quit the bakery, she picked up hours at a second Dunkin Donuts and then a third. Co-workers said all her jobs paid at or just above the minimum wage which New Jersey raised by $1 earlier this year to $8.25 an hour. I told her over and over, Quit one. Youre working too much, Culhane said. But she said, No, Im used to it now.Friends say they never got solid answers from Fernandes about why she worked so much or, given her ability with languages, why she didnt pursue a different job. Some of Fernandes expenses reflected choices. Friends recount a number of instances when she gave them cash or handed over a debit card to help pay for food or travel. Along with her Chihuahua and three cats the latter all named for Greek gods Fernandes bought food for neighborhood strays. Last year she bought the 2001 Kia for $1,000, replacing the buses and trains shed used to commute. Like so much else, she shared it generously. I probably put more miles on it than she did, said friend and coworker Armando Gonzalez, who sometimes borrowed the car to visit his family in Connecticut. But the Kia needed repairs. Last December, Fernandes brought it in to Newarks Go Tire for $700 in work, asking owner Richard Fernandez for time to pay the bill because she needed money to buy Christmas gifts. It took a little longer than expected, but I understood so I wasnt trying to push her too much, the garage owner said. Two months later, Fernandes walked in with the money to settle the bill and retrieved her car from the mechanics lot. And then there was the money she spent to pursue her enthusiasm for all things Michael Jackson. She was one of eight or nine women now in their 20s to 40s and scattered through New York and New Jersey who met and traveled together to celebrate the singer. They dubbed themselves LOTP, after a Jackson 5 tune, Life of the Party. On Facebook, the woman who served frozen coffee Coolatas behind the Dunkin counter called herself Maria Jackson Fernandes. After Jackson died, members of LOTP traveled to California each June to visit his burial site at Forest Lawn Cemetery and his Neverland estate. Fernandes saved for months to make the trip. Friends who were not part of the group called it an infatuation. But in a video filmed outside Jacksons mausoleum this past June and posted to YouTube, Fernandes talked about how much the singer meant to her. You want to break down and cry but youre in public and, you know, this is as close as Im ever going to get to him, ever, she said in the video. To me, when you say youre not alone, it literally means Michael is always there. Fernandes paychecks made the trips possible. While its not clear exactly how much she earned, she worked at least 87 hours each week, and some friends say even more. That would equate to totally yearly income of $36,000, assuming two weeks off. But work also increasingly limited the time she had. For the last couple of years, when LOTP met for a Christmas sleepover at friend Shelly Blocks house in New Jersey, Fernandes stayed an hour or two before leaving for work. This past June the fifth anniversary of Jacksons death she told the other women she wouldnt be able to make it to California, then surprised them by showing up at the cemetery before vanishing at days end. Honestly, I can tell you this, Michael is what kept her going, said DarShay White, one of the members of LOTP. She told me a lot how she was sad, how she was tired ... But she knew what she was working for to get to California, to see Michael.Early this year, Fernandes created a profile on a dating website, Gothscene.com. Clueless, she called herself. Her self-description as an animal lover interested in the supernatural and nostalgic for the 1980s caught the eye of Glen Carter, a 33-year-old Army veteran working at a Pennsylvania company that builds animal rescue vehicles. We were on the phone constantly from day one, Carter said. I wasnt expecting, you know, to have any serious relationship with her. Its just I was talking to her and the more I talked, the more we connected. As the summer began, they agreed to be a couple. Carter, in the process of a divorce and having trouble making alimony payments, said he encouraged Fernandes to visit and consider moving to Pennsylvania. But the idea was cemented when Fernandes took three days off from work in early August and they met for the first time, taking Carters daughter to Hersheypark. On their last day together, a manager from one of the doughnut shops called Fernandes to ask her to come in to work, he said. White said she encouraged Fernandes to move to Pennsylvania, pointing out that there was little keeping her in Newark. But Fernandes was uncertain. If she left, she told her friend, managers at the doughnut shops might be left short-handed. Back home, Fernandes kept up the schedule, putting off another visit to Carter because she didnt have money for gas. She worked so much that landlady Amelia Resende sometimes went two weeks without seeing Fernandes, who rented a basement room in her house. Five or six times in the past year, Resende said, she came outside to find Fernandes asleep in the drivers seat with the car running, once at 3 a.m. This is no good, Maria, no good, Resende said she told Fernandes. Im sorry, Amelia. Im so tired, she said Fernandes answered as she helped her out of the car. Inside, Resende noticed, Fernandes reserved the sofa bed for her cats, spreading blankets for herself on the floor.Fifteen minutes before sunrise on Monday, Aug. 25, Fernandes finished her overnight shift, punctuating a round-the-clock weekend of work. Ill see you tomorrow, she told a coworker on the morning shift. Halfway home, she pulled in to the parking lot of a Wawa convenience store. The stores video surveillance camera recorded the time as 6:27 a.m. U can call if you like, she texted Carter just as he got to work. The couple talked about the day just completed and the one ahead. Fernandes said she was planning to go to the gym before going back to work. Then Carter hung up to start his own job. Fernandes tilted back the drivers seat, leaving the engine running, the windows up and the doors locked, to catch up on much-needed sleep. She never woke up. The Wawa lot is popular with livery drivers, who stop to nap between airport pickups. It wasnt until 3:51 p.m. that a store employee finishing his shift noticed that a woman hed seen sleeping in a car that morning was still there. Inside the vehicle, police found the gas can that Fernandes kept behind the back seat, tipped over and leaking. Fernandes death was caused by inhalation of gas vapors and was accidental, the Union County Medical Examiner would determine. Women from LOTP raised $6,000 to pay for Fernandes funeral. At the cemetery, less than a mile from the doughnut shop where she worked her final shift, mourners stepped forward to lay roses and sunflowers on her cream-colored casket. Wait! Wait! Wait! White sobbed, stabbing her heels into the ground as workers lowered the coffin. Then, slowly, mourners drifted away Culhane and his sons in the funeral suits Fernandes had bought for them, members of LOTP leaning on one anothers shoulders. Standing beside the grave, Fernandes co-worker, Armando Gonzalez, glanced down at his watch. There was just enough time, he said, to run home, change from his slacks and tie into his familiar white-and-brown uniform and report for a 3 p.m. shift. Weve got to keep living, you know? FINALContinued from Page D1 While its not clear exactly how much she earned, she worked at least 87 hours each week, and some friends say even more.

Real EstateDIGEST Associated PressWASHINGTON Federal regulators are proceeding with new rules that ease guidelines for banks selling mortgage securities and could mean fewer borrowers will need to make hefty down payments. The Securities and Exchange Commission voted 3-2 Wednesday to adopt the rules, which six federal agencies have been working on since 2011. The SECs two Republican commissioners, Daniel Gallagher and Michael Piwowar, opposed adoption. The Federal Reserve governors approved the rules on a 5-0 vote later in the day. Three other agencies adopted the rules Tuesday. With the financial crisis and subprime mortgage bust receding further into history, the regulators are looking to inject more life into the still-recovering housing market. The rules govern the amount of risk banks must take on when they package and sell mortgage securities in a multitrillion-dollar market. In the final rules, the regulators have dropped a key requirement: a 20percent down payment from the borrower if a bank didnt hold at least 5 percent of the mortgage securities tied to those loans on its books. The final rules include the less stringent condition that borrowers not carry excessive debt relative to their income. The rules for the market for mortgage securities will take effect in a year. For other kinds of securities such as those bundling together auto loans or commercial loans, which dont allow banks an exemption from the 5-percent rule, the effective date is in two years. The rules were mandated by the overhaul law enacted in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. The idea was to limit the kind of risky lending that brought on the crisis.

The rural Ohio counties of Muskingum and Hardin ranked among the nations highest in subprime lending, with more than 40 percent of the loans high cost. More than a dozen of Ohios other counties had subprime lending rates of 30 percent or greater. Las Vegas Clark County, a poster child for the subprime mortgage crisis, had a 23 percent subprime lending rate. The numbers reinforce what private groups have long said: The Buckeye State was tops in the share of home loans in foreclosure. With a cultural emphasis on open space and owning a home, many rural residents jumped to get subprime loans at initial affordable terms during the mid-2000s, only to have fortunes disappear as housing boom turned to bust. In rural U.S. counties, that has led to higher vacancy rates, population declines and a weak rebound in housing prices. Economic pain still lingers. In rural Rushsylvania, Ohio, Larry McKirahan, 52, expressed frustration with his subprime loan. McKirahan and his wife took out loans beginning in 1999 to help pay for a fourbedroom, 4,100-square-foot home before refinancing in 2005. McKirahan says he was later surprised by the monthly payments. After losing his factory job in 2008, McKirahan filed for bankruptcy reorganization in 2010, which temporarily stopped foreclosure. Were at the mercy of the system, said McKirahan, describing lenders unresponsive in explaining the loan terms. Now a truck driver, McKirahan worries he may owe a hefty sum on more than $200,000 in loans. This is our home, we built it and raised our family in it, but we dont know how much longer well be able to stay. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau recently expressed concern with high numbers of rural borrowers who take out high-cost loans. Subprime lending is showing signs of a return. Paul Nikodem, head strategist at Nomura Securities International, said there is slow but growing supply for less traditional loans aimed at customers who may not qualify under the governments newly tightened borrower rules. Recent federal mortgage data analyzed by the nonprofit group Housing Assistance Council suggest that higher rates of rural subprime lending persist. The bureau is continuing to carefully monitor all aspects of the mortgage market, including rural areas, said Samuel Gilford, a CFPB spokesman. Amy Lambdin, 32, a bankruptcy lawyer in Hardin County, describes rising debt as a norm. Foreclosed homes still dot the landscape, and residents describe families who sometimes disappear almost overnight, especially after cutbacks at a local auto plant in 2009. While bankruptcy filings have recently leveled off, Lambdin says shes not certain its because of improving family finances. Theyre just too poor to file for bankruptcy, she said. RYANTRARES Daily JournalFRANKLIN, Ind. Twenty headbobbing chickens pecked through the yard, squawking and hunting for food. The birds walked with an awkward stop-start gait. When a chicken spotted something worth eating in the grass, its head dipped quickly down to grab the corn kernel, blade of grass or worm with its beak. But as an added bonus, the chickens even became a form of entertainment, bobbing, pecking and playing together in their fenced-in run. Franklin resident Christina Fletcher called it Chicken TV. Thats the slang with chicken coopers. Its better than anything you could watch, she told the Daily Journal. You watch them, and they do the funniest things. The Fletchers are part of a growing movement starting their own chicken coops in their backyards. As the concept of local food and sustainability gains popularity, people are bringing the chicken coop off the farm and into the city. Theyre raising backyard chickens, setting up chicken runs and harvesting their own eggs. Laws in cities such as Greenwood and Franklin still prevent homeowners from having chickens in their backyard. But as demand for urban coops grows, more and more people are pushing for changes to the rules. Theyre really kind of funny. There is far more personality with the chicken than I ever really thought, she said. Theyve really been a fun addition, beyond just for the eggs and for the fun. Fletcher and her family moved to Franklin about 4 1/2 years ago, so that the family could be closer to her grandparents. Generations of Fletchers family had kept chickens on farms in southern Johnson County, and she wanted to do the same. Ive always been interested in animals on the farm, and I tried to think of what I could convince my husband to let me have. Chickens were the easiest thing, she said. Living just south of the city, Fletcher put together a coop and chicken run. With a flock of 20 birds, they had a ready supply of fresh eggs. Chickens lay an egg for every 14 hours of sunlight, so people can get an egg each day. That proved to be the best part. If youve never had a fresh egg, theyre light years ahead of stores. Store eggs are as much as 30 days old already, Fletcher said. A fresh egg is firmer, the white stands up more, the yolk is a deep orange color. They have better flavor. Chickens also serve as pest control. All chickens eat bugs and can keep lawn grubs, termites and grasshoppers out of the yard. One breed, called the Buckeye, has been known to hunt mice and snakes as well.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014E17 E4SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE C ARL M ANUCCI 352-302-9787 S USAN M ULLEN 352-422-2133 000JM7L Terms 6 Months or More Social Membership included with all Rentals Terra Vista & Brentwood Rentals!

The family recently moved into a rental house inside Franklin city limits and can no longer have a coop themselves. But Fletcher wasnt ready to give up on backyard chickens. After reading about services elsewhere that rented chicks to people to keep in their own backyards, she started her own chicken-rental business. The Fresh Egg provides interested urban farmers with a coop, two egg-laying hens and feed. Fletcher has a friend with who keeps her chickens for her. She purchased her flock from area farmers as chicks, and then rents them to customers from May until November, giving them a taste of backyard farming without making too much of a commitment. Its for people who want to try chickens, to see if theyre interested or if theyll like it. Maybe they want their kids to try it, Fletcher said. The interest in backyard chickens has only been tempered by laws and regulations in certain cities that prohibit keeping chickens in city limits. Franklin, Greenwood and Whiteland all have rules preventing people from keeping chickens in small backyards. Residents have attempted to change the rules to allow small flocks of hens. But Franklins city council voted against changes to its rules, and Indianapolis is one of the communities that allows people to have chickens. Maggie Goeglein has been raising chickens since 2010 in her Rocky Ripple home. She heard about the trend of urban chicken coops, did some research and decided to start a flock with four chicks. I loved the idea of having fresh eggs from the backyard. I like DIY stuff, and having a garden, and this is certainly a way to jump into this, Goeglein said. Since starting, she has plunged fully into the world of chickens. She has connected with people all over the Indianapolis area who have shared tips about which breeds fare best in Indiana or how to use the birds to keep a yard free of pests. Andrew Brake keeps a flock of chickens at his Broad Ripple-area home. He has taught a class, How to Raise Backyard Chickens, for IUPUIs Community Learning Network and organizes a tour of urban chicken coops to show how its done. He started a business, Nap Town Chickens, to help generate interest in backyard coops, and help homeowners and schools throughout Marion County. Our goal is a coop in every yard and a fresh egg on every plate, he said. The big advantage of raising your own chickens is having fresh eggs on demand. When he wants to put together breakfast, he simply walks to his backyard to grab eggs that are days old. Nothing in the grocery store is that fresh, he said. essential. You guessed it: One bad packaging job cost me. Then there is theft. How do they sleep at night, or is that when they are hard at work? I will never understand that chosen way of life, nor is there any sympathy. With 16 cameras and Gypsy, we dont miss much, but theft does happen. I once followed an individual down the mall and his only interest was in the cases and identifying camera locations. We made a note of the date and time, and we have pictures. For me, the worst part of theft is that we greet every customer and thank them when they leave. The thief also leaves with a smile. This months story is from Cheryl Anne Reed: I had always wondered what would happen if a set of shelves fell over. Well one day, to avoid stepping on a box of $10 Christmas ornaments, I backed into a case full of china and porcelain in my shop. The only thing I could do was experience the moment as the shelves toppled over in slow motion, from the crashing sounds of breaking china right down to the last piece skittering across the floor.

Associated PressLong seen as having devastated Sun Belt cities, the subprime mortgage crisis unleashed turmoil on Ohio and other rural areas. Now federal officials are pledging regulatory attention and financial help. Subprime loans were distributed in the rural U.S. at even higher rates on average than in metropolitan counties. Much of it was concentrated in Appalachia and other areas stretching from Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky to Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas and the Great Plains, according to government data provided to The Associated Press by researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Middlebury College. Its a shift from conventional wisdom that larger metro areas were the hardest hit, due in part to gaps in federal mortgage data. But new research is helping shed light on many long-neglected rural counties with high rates of risky lending, coming as U.S. banks pledge relief to hard-hit communities as part of multibillion-dollar legal settlements for their role in selling shoddy mortgage bonds. Lawmakers want rural counties to get their fair share. Too many rural communities have been left behind, said Sen. Sherrod Brown, an Ohio Democrat. At the peak of the housing bubble in 2006, about 35 percent of home loans across all rural counties were given to borrowers deemed a higher credit risk, whose loans typically come with higher interest rates and fees. In metropolitan counties, the figure was 29 percent. margins. Leaves are pungently aromatic close up. The plant is toxic to livestock. Many small, multicolored flowers are borne in dense, flat-topped clusters about 1.5 inches in diameter. The corolla of individual flowers is a tube with four short, spreading lobes. Formerly popular as butterfly nectar plants, gardeners are now aware of Lantanas disruptive, negative impact on our environment. This global invader threatens to eliminate populations of native plants, animals and insects around the world. In Florida it has hybridized with rare native L. depressa, contaminated the gene pool and probably eliminated the latter from the wild. Over 100 forms, both cultivars and hybrids, are still available in the retail trade. Named cultivars claim to be sterile and incapable of producing seeds. The yellowflowered New Gold in my garden indeed has few seeds. But it is an aggressive, prostrate, groundhugging vigorous plant that roots down at any stem in contact with the ground. Although frost defoliates this plant and a freeze kills the widespreading stems, it returns with a vengeance in spring. I cut it back to the center crown and dig out any rooted stems. Broken roots will re-sprout shortly after the last frost in March. By fall, a single plant can reach over 6 feet in diameter. Mowing and pruning require perseverance.

Blended bee-friendly lawns can be a beneficial compromise when landscaping.DEAN FOSDICK/ Associated Press invested in mortgage securities so-called skin in the game they wont be as likely to take excessive risks, the thinking goes. Fed Chair Janet Yellen said at Wednesdays meeting that skin in the game requirements give banks selling securities an economic incentive to monitor the credit quality of the loans tied to them. SEC Chair Mary Jo White said the regulators have found a balance between two objectives of the financial overhaul law: protecting investors and not unnecessarily inhibiting the residential mortgage market. Some critics warn that abandoning the 20 percent down payment condition could bring a return to the dangerous days of borrowers taking on heavy mortgage loans that they arent in a position to repay. Industry groups, meanwhile, are talking up the eased rules potential impact on lending. After three years of interagency haggling, the regulators final, compromise approach was to adopt the Consumer Financial Protection Bureaus definition of a qualified mortgage. It excludes the kind of risky practices that fueled the crisis, such as mortgages issued without any supporting documents from borrowers. Gallagher said before the SEC vote that the six agencies have disgracefully abdicated to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. He said the new rules could have dire consequences by encouraging the kinds of risky lending practices that helped spark the financial crisis. Republicans have strongly opposed the CFPB, which was created by the 2010 overhaul law, and Republican lawmakers had sought to curtail the agencys powers.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014E5 E16SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000JMTW 5569 W.

RULESContinued from Page E3 DEANFOSDICK Associated PressTurf grass may be an attractive groundcover for homeowners, but it doesnt hold much appeal for pollinators. Add some broadleaf plants with flowers to the mix, however, and its a different story: great forage for the birds and the bees. Lower maintenance, too. Bee lawns arent 100 percent flowers. They have some grass included, said Mary Meyer, an extension horticulturist and professor with the University of Minnesota. While bees dont use grass, humans do. Most flowers, if you start walking on them, will die. Clover will tolerate a bit of foot traffic. Nitrogen-rich Dutch white clover generally is considered the best companion to cool-season lawn grasses when the objective is attracting pollinators, said Mace Vaughan, pollinator program director for The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation in Portland, Oregon. You can mow it and keep it relatively tame in a lawn, and bees love it, Vaughan said. The good thing about Dutch white clover is that it is good (to grow) across most of the U.S. There was a time when many turf seed mixes included clover. Then came the rise of lawn purity: Yards were designed to look like the manicured greens on a golf course. All grass. No broadleaf plants. These formalized landscapes were attractive but contained little food value for foraging honeybees. Now that clean lawn ethic is giving way to herb and vegetable gardens, a desire for minimal yard maintenance and concerns about steep declines in pollinating insects. People are opting for smaller lawns, blended lawns or no lawns. The trend is urban meadows, where homeowners take out their lawns and replace them with Clover comeback: Bee lawns gaining attention Gardening approach aims to provide attractive plants for pollinators See BEE-FRIENDLY / Page E8 JANEContinued from Page E14 Rural areas seek piece of subprime settlement See SUBPRIME / Page E17

Associated PressSigns welcome visitors to a model home as construction is under way at a housing development in Zelienople, Pa. About half of all homes with a mortgage have rates at about 4.3 percent or less, according to real estate data provider CoreLogic. It may not be worth it for those homeowners to refinance at current rates because refinancing carries its own costs and fees. Nela Richardson, chief economist at real estate brokerage Redfin, estimates that only homeowners with rates higher than 4.25 percent would see a net benefit from refinancing. Similarly, with many home borrowers already in the range of 3.5 percent to 4 percent on their mortgages, the spike in refinancing may not last very long, said Michael Fratantoni, the MBAs chief economist. For potential homebuyers, the lower rates could encourage reluctant purchasers to take the plunge. Their hesitation stems from the lingering effects of the Great Recession. Median household incomes have yet to completely rebound and remain below their 2007 levels after adjusting for inflation. Limited income gains have cut into the cash flow and down payment savings needed to purchase a home. Meanwhile, median home prices have risen 5.6 percent over the past 12 months to $209,700, and lenders have kept standards tight for making mortgage loans since the recession. Add to that the trend toward millennials putting off buying their first home, said Stan Humphries, chief economist of real estate firm Zillow. Economists expect sales of new homes in September to show a 7.1 percent drop from a year earlier when the Commerce Department issues a report Friday. A lot of buyers who are still on the sidelines are going to be encouraged by this, Richardson said of the falling mortgage rates. But MBAs Fratantoni stressed that home buying will largely be driven by what happens on the employment front. U.S. businesses have been hiring workers at a healthy pace, pushing down the unemployment rate to a six-year low of 5.9 percent. More hiring means more income for consumers to spend on buying homes, as well as a stronger economy overall. Still, the job market is far from full health. More than 7 million people hold part-time jobs but would like full-time work, up from 4.6 million before the downturn. And there are still twice as many people unemployed for longer than six months as there were before the recession. Before last week, many bankers, lenders and borrowers had assumed that mortgage rates would soon start rising closer to a two-decade average of 6 percent. That was based on expectations that the Federal Reserve would start raising its key short-term rate next year a move that likely would lead to higher mortgage rates. But that assumption fell suddenly into doubt as stocks plunged last Monday and Wednesday amid fears about global economic weaknesses, the spread of Ebola and the threat of the Islamic State militia group in the Middle East. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage 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 slipped to 2.91 percent from 2.92 percent. The fee was steady at 0.5 point. For a one-year ARM, the average rate rose to 2.41 percent from 2.38 percent. The fee held at 0.4 point.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014E15 E6SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE TERRI STEWART REALTOR MILLION $ SELLER! CENTURY 21 J.W.

It may even convince some Americans to buy their first home. Yet there are limits to how far the wave can extend. Millions of homeowners already refinanced in 2013, when the average 30-year mortgage rate stayed below 4 percent until mid-year. And the overall housing market remains hampered by tight mortgage credit, rising home prices and stagnating incomes. This week the average rate on the 30-year loan fell to 3.92 percent, mortgage company Freddie Mac reported Thursday. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, retreated to 3.08 percent from 3.18 percent. That is sparking a boomlet of homeowners looking to refinance as long-term mortgage rates plummet. Homeowners eager for a bargain rate are firing off inquiries to lenders. Applications for refis jumped 23 percent in the week ended Oct. 17 from the week before reaching their highest level since November 2013, figures compiled by the Mortgage Bankers Association show. The average 30-year mortgage rate nationwide that week breached the 4 percent threshold and hit 3.97 percent from 4.12 percent the previous week. It was the lowest level since June 2013. Deepening concern over the health of the world economy compelled investors to flee stocks and move into bonds. That pushed up prices of Treasury notes and suppressed their yields, which often pull along mortgage rates. But it remains to be seen whether the uptick in refinancing will turn into an extended boom. Collectors might be interested in novelty writing tools Dear John: I would like to know if you can assist me with any information on the current market interest, if any, for two different typesof items. The first is novelty pens and pencils. I have a small collection that belonged to my parents. All are in good to excellent condition. Some are quite unique and are from a variety of places. The collection includes a pristine set of pen and mechanical pencil from the 1945 World Series. I have no idea if anyone collects these items. The second is a Sunday School Primer, History ofOrrin Pierce which was published by the American Sunday School Union in the mid-1800s. Photos of both items are attached. I would deeply appreciate your assistance in providing me information as to how I could obtain a value on these items. D.B., Lecanto Dear D.B.: I suggest you contact a collecting club about your novelty pens and pencils. The website is www.pen collectorsofamerica.com. Depending on condition, the Sunday school primer would sell for less than $50. Dear John: My father died recently and my mother gave me a ring that had been in his possession. She said my great uncle brought it back from France after World War I. It appears to be aluminum and has an S-shaped flat top. There are holes on either side, and if you look in one hole at just the right angle, you can see the image of a naked woman standing with her arms raised, covering her eyes. There is a stairway in the background. Can you tell me anything about this and its worth? L.L., Internet Dear L.L.: You have a Stanhope ring, named after Lord Stanhope, a British fellow who is credited with popularizing the use of microphotography. Miniature micro photographic lenses were incorporated in a wide range of souvenir and novelty items starting in the mid-19th century. They are often overlooked sitting in drawers and jewelry boxes. The variety of items Stanhopes were fitted into is practically endless sewing John SikorskiSIKORSKIS ATTIC Inside...

JANE WEBER/Special to the ChronicleIntroduced to Florida in 1804, Lantanais an exotic invasive that disrupts natural ecosystems and displaces native plants. The plant is toxic to livestock. Volunteer gardeners are now struggling to remove this plant pest from Rainbow Springs State Park and Dunnellon Public Library. Introduced to Florida in 1804, alien Lantana, also called Shrub verbena, Lantana camara is an exotic invasive that disrupts natural ecosystems and displaces native plants throughout Florida in zones 9-12. It should never be deliberately planted in any garden. Volunteer gardeners are now struggling to remove this plant pest from Rainbow Springs State Park and from the 11 acres at Dunnellon Public Library. Lantana is a prolific nectar plant. It had been deliberately planted by well-meaning butterfly lovers who failed to realize its negative impact on the environment. Lantana is an evergreen perennial in frost-free climates. In Central Florida, frost kills the leaves and thinner branches. Stalks are killed to the ground by hard freezes in more northern parts of Florida. Prolonged freezes will kill the roots. There are about 150 species in the genus, most originally from tropical and sub-tropical America. A few evolved in Africa. Lantanas have rough, square stems covered in stiff bristles when young and green then turning into small prickles on older stems. Plants have a strong odor. Two native lantanas include the endangered Florida Lantana, L. depressa,now so hybidized that pure species may be extripated in the wild, and the more common Wild Sage, L. involucrata. Highly invasiveLantana camara makes hundreds of seeds in shiny berries that birds spread widely. At the library, some bushes are 6 feet tall by 6 feet in diameter. Rough, hairy leaves are opposite along the stems; simple (not lobed); and have oval blades and broad, squared bases and blunt-toothedCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014E7 E14SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE WELL MAINTAINED 3/2/2 CLOSE TO SHOPPING AND COMMUNITY AMENITIES Great room, inside laundry and screened porch. $92,000 158D764/713653/415515 Call Capt.

It is signed and possibly dated, but I cannot see it clearly. The old glass is dirty from the inside and the border hides part of the date, which makes it difficult to read clearly. The signature looks like a P or F then N, and then possibly it looks like Hubbal I am not sure, but that is the best that I could make out. Under that are letters LXVI. The painting is of a lone man fishing in a small boat, on very still water with small hills surrounding him, and clouds and mountains in the background at sunset or sunrise. Also, the color is fairly dark and muted, and it is a very, very peaceful picture. I would appreciate any recommendations that you could give me. M.L., Internet Dear M.L.: The description of your painting dates it back to the late 19th to early 20th century. I offer an informal verbal advice appraisal.

Gypsys Two Cents: From a dead sleep I hear crash, boom and a cry. After a threating woof, I investigate and find a customer hunched over picking up the pieces. Sometimes I wish I wore shoes.Inventory control in this business is most challenging, with costs, spreadsheets, unsellable items, many dealers, negotiations and a wide variety of items. It seems a customer always wants the item that requires a full stretch, balanced on one leg and dangling over a set of china. We are our own worst enemies. With the moving, wrapping and unwrapping, something is always getting broken; nothing to say but oh, well, its inventory control. Following are the three most common ways items leave the shop: As you might guess, my favorite is sales. Sure, it feels good to make a profit, but is most satisfying when a customer leaves with a good feeling. You break it, you bought it isnt always fair. Accidents do happen, and I admit some dealers display items in a manner that invites disaster. Someone can back into a display or make a turn and then crash, boom. Many times I have contributed to this form of inventory control. We sell items on the Internet and ship worldwide, so proper packaging is DEAN FOSDICK/Associated PressDandelions on a lawn near Langley, Wash. Dandelions can be an asset if youre trying to bring pollinating insects to your yard. diverse wildflowers that can get tall and rangy at the end of the season, Vaughan said. But a nicely mown border around the outside keeps them looking tidy. Add a sign and people know youre doing it on purpose. Mow in the fall and the whole lawn is cleaned up nicely. Other flowering broadleaf plants include dandelions (which bloom early when little else is flowering), lamium (shade-tolerant) and thyme. Some property owners convert less visible sections of their yards into biodiverse bee lawns. Reserve some chunks, Meyer said. Devote your back lawn to a bee lawn and leave your front lawn traditional turf the part that your neighbors and passing traffic see. For people who still want that green carpet look, try it with clover, Meyer said. Are flowering broadleafs invasive weeds or beneficial grass companions? It depends on your aesthetics. But no matter how theyre viewed, they require less care and less fertilizing, and are more resilient to drought and pests than traditional turf grass. Ive seen some beautiful mats of thyme that are mowed and attract many, many bees, Vaughan said. Small varieties of yarrow are OK, but dont attract a lot of bees. Other pollinators come to the yarrow. University of Minnesota researchers are trying to come up with pollinator lawn-seed combinations that use native plant species low-growing, non-invasive varieties that can take a lot of abuse. Thats a heavy order, Meyer said, but theyre doing trials. Next year theyll be planting demo plants to see how they flower and survive.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014E13 E8SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE AMERICAN REALTY & INVESTMENTS 4511 N.

Dear Gardener Gal: We are just beginning the process of building a new home and have concerns about the trees on our lot. The builder says he can work around most of the pines and oaks near the future house, but several will have to be taken down. We chose this lot based primarily on the beautiful trees and hate to lose any of them. Is there anything we can do to protect the surviving trees during construction? Lorax LadyDear L.L.: Ah, The Lorax. It should be mandatory reading for everyone! Like you, most folks appreciate the beauty, shade and connection to nature trees afford us. Unfortunately, the very construction that would allow us to live among the trees, often leads to their demise. Obvious damage to a tree, like broken branches and scarred trunks, are the least of the trees worries. The worst problem is the compression of soil and roots from construction traffic. It is not uncommon for new homeowners to fight tooth and nail to keep trees, only to have to pay big bucks to have them removed in five years as the previous damage takes its toll. There are things you can do to better your trees chances. First off only try to save the healthiest trees. You may want an arborist to help with this selection. Once you have your favs picked out, fence off the CRZ (Critical Root Zone) of each tree. This zone is basically a foot away from the trunk for every inch of trunk diameter. Remember, most trees roots spread out around, rather than deep under the tree. Approximately 90 percent of a trees root system is in the top three feet of soil. It only takes one truck driving over the CRZ and then backing up to do real damage to the tree. As your trees No. 1 Best Friend, be ready to speak up if you see workers doing any of the following under your trees: Parking vehicles, dumping building materials, piling up or scraping away soil. There is a good University of Florida article called Trees and Construction by Dick Dutton with more suggestions. Good luck, and thank you for speaking for the trees! Dear Gardener Gal: I am a recent transplant from Ohio, where I had a beautiful lawn. Now that Im here in Florida, Im doing research to find the perfect lawn grass for Florida. These are my requirements: It must be diseaseand bug-free. It must be somewhat shade-tolerant (thrives on less than six hours). And, since this is sunny Florida, Id like a grass thats green at least 10 months of the year. Is there such a grass? Want The BestDear Want The Best: Nope. None of the turf types available meet these requirements. Write back if you are interested in some non-turf ideas especially important if you have a yard receiving less than six hours of direct sunlight.

says. Look for pieces in gradations of color perhaps pale pink to deep cherry, or sky blue to indigo. Or search tag sales and thrift stores for sweaters with nature motifs to create a group of woodland pillows. Those dreadful Christmas sweaters of old can be transformed into new Christmas stockings; other heavily patterned and colorful sweaters make great rugs. Millman suggests using a rotary cutter and anchoring the edges of a loose knit with masking tape while cutting, to reduce fraying. She also advises washing any woolens in hot soapy water in case there are moths. If you then machine-dry the sweater, youll end up with a felted material, popular in crafting circles, where the fibers smush together. If you line-dry the garment, the knit pattern remains and the fibers stay separated. If you arent up for a craft project yourself, dont worry there are lots of stores offering sweater-themed items.

says. Look for pieces in gradations of color perhaps pale pink to deep cherry, or sky blue to indigo. Or search tag sales and thrift stores for sweaters with nature motifs to create a group of woodland pillows. Those dreadful Christmas sweaters of old can be transformed into new Christmas stockings; other heavily patterned and colorful sweaters make great rugs. Millman suggests using a rotary cutter and anchoring the edges of a loose knit with masking tape while cutting, to reduce fraying. She also advises washing any woolens in hot soapy water in case there are moths. If you then machine-dry the sweater, youll end up with a felted material, popular in crafting circles, where the fibers smush together. If you line-dry the garment, the knit pattern remains and the fibers stay separated. If you arent up for a craft project yourself, dont worry there are lots of stores offering sweater-themed items.

Gypsys Two Cents: From a dead sleep I hear crash, boom and a cry. After a threating woof, I investigate and find a customer hunched over picking up the pieces. Sometimes I wish I wore shoes.Inventory control in this business is most challenging, with costs, spreadsheets, unsellable items, many dealers, negotiations and a wide variety of items. It seems a customer always wants the item that requires a full stretch, balanced on one leg and dangling over a set of china. We are our own worst enemies. With the moving, wrapping and unwrapping, something is always getting broken; nothing to say but oh, well, its inventory control. Following are the three most common ways items leave the shop: As you might guess, my favorite is sales. Sure, it feels good to make a profit, but is most satisfying when a customer leaves with a good feeling. You break it, you bought it isnt always fair. Accidents do happen, and I admit some dealers display items in a manner that invites disaster. Someone can back into a display or make a turn and then crash, boom. Many times I have contributed to this form of inventory control. We sell items on the Internet and ship worldwide, so proper packaging is DEAN FOSDICK/Associated PressDandelions on a lawn near Langley, Wash. Dandelions can be an asset if youre trying to bring pollinating insects to your yard. diverse wildflowers that can get tall and rangy at the end of the season, Vaughan said. But a nicely mown border around the outside keeps them looking tidy. Add a sign and people know youre doing it on purpose. Mow in the fall and the whole lawn is cleaned up nicely. Other flowering broadleaf plants include dandelions (which bloom early when little else is flowering), lamium (shade-tolerant) and thyme. Some property owners convert less visible sections of their yards into biodiverse bee lawns. Reserve some chunks, Meyer said. Devote your back lawn to a bee lawn and leave your front lawn traditional turf the part that your neighbors and passing traffic see. For people who still want that green carpet look, try it with clover, Meyer said. Are flowering broadleafs invasive weeds or beneficial grass companions? It depends on your aesthetics. But no matter how theyre viewed, they require less care and less fertilizing, and are more resilient to drought and pests than traditional turf grass. Ive seen some beautiful mats of thyme that are mowed and attract many, many bees, Vaughan said. Small varieties of yarrow are OK, but dont attract a lot of bees. Other pollinators come to the yarrow. University of Minnesota researchers are trying to come up with pollinator lawn-seed combinations that use native plant species low-growing, non-invasive varieties that can take a lot of abuse. Thats a heavy order, Meyer said, but theyre doing trials. Next year theyll be planting demo plants to see how they flower and survive.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014E13 E8SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE AMERICAN REALTY & INVESTMENTS 4511 N.

Dear Gardener Gal: We are just beginning the process of building a new home and have concerns about the trees on our lot. The builder says he can work around most of the pines and oaks near the future house, but several will have to be taken down. We chose this lot based primarily on the beautiful trees and hate to lose any of them. Is there anything we can do to protect the surviving trees during construction? Lorax LadyDear L.L.: Ah, The Lorax. It should be mandatory reading for everyone! Like you, most folks appreciate the beauty, shade and connection to nature trees afford us. Unfortunately, the very construction that would allow us to live among the trees, often leads to their demise. Obvious damage to a tree, like broken branches and scarred trunks, are the least of the trees worries. The worst problem is the compression of soil and roots from construction traffic. It is not uncommon for new homeowners to fight tooth and nail to keep trees, only to have to pay big bucks to have them removed in five years as the previous damage takes its toll. There are things you can do to better your trees chances. First off only try to save the healthiest trees. You may want an arborist to help with this selection. Once you have your favs picked out, fence off the CRZ (Critical Root Zone) of each tree. This zone is basically a foot away from the trunk for every inch of trunk diameter. Remember, most trees roots spread out around, rather than deep under the tree. Approximately 90 percent of a trees root system is in the top three feet of soil. It only takes one truck driving over the CRZ and then backing up to do real damage to the tree. As your trees No. 1 Best Friend, be ready to speak up if you see workers doing any of the following under your trees: Parking vehicles, dumping building materials, piling up or scraping away soil. There is a good University of Florida article called Trees and Construction by Dick Dutton with more suggestions. Good luck, and thank you for speaking for the trees! Dear Gardener Gal: I am a recent transplant from Ohio, where I had a beautiful lawn. Now that Im here in Florida, Im doing research to find the perfect lawn grass for Florida. These are my requirements: It must be diseaseand bug-free. It must be somewhat shade-tolerant (thrives on less than six hours). And, since this is sunny Florida, Id like a grass thats green at least 10 months of the year. Is there such a grass? Want The BestDear Want The Best: Nope. None of the turf types available meet these requirements. Write back if you are interested in some non-turf ideas especially important if you have a yard receiving less than six hours of direct sunlight.

JANE WEBER/Special to the ChronicleIntroduced to Florida in 1804, Lantanais an exotic invasive that disrupts natural ecosystems and displaces native plants. The plant is toxic to livestock. Volunteer gardeners are now struggling to remove this plant pest from Rainbow Springs State Park and Dunnellon Public Library. Introduced to Florida in 1804, alien Lantana, also called Shrub verbena, Lantana camara is an exotic invasive that disrupts natural ecosystems and displaces native plants throughout Florida in zones 9-12. It should never be deliberately planted in any garden. Volunteer gardeners are now struggling to remove this plant pest from Rainbow Springs State Park and from the 11 acres at Dunnellon Public Library. Lantana is a prolific nectar plant. It had been deliberately planted by well-meaning butterfly lovers who failed to realize its negative impact on the environment. Lantana is an evergreen perennial in frost-free climates. In Central Florida, frost kills the leaves and thinner branches. Stalks are killed to the ground by hard freezes in more northern parts of Florida. Prolonged freezes will kill the roots. There are about 150 species in the genus, most originally from tropical and sub-tropical America. A few evolved in Africa. Lantanas have rough, square stems covered in stiff bristles when young and green then turning into small prickles on older stems. Plants have a strong odor. Two native lantanas include the endangered Florida Lantana, L. depressa,now so hybidized that pure species may be extripated in the wild, and the more common Wild Sage, L. involucrata. Highly invasiveLantana camara makes hundreds of seeds in shiny berries that birds spread widely. At the library, some bushes are 6 feet tall by 6 feet in diameter. Rough, hairy leaves are opposite along the stems; simple (not lobed); and have oval blades and broad, squared bases and blunt-toothedCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014E7 E14SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE WELL MAINTAINED 3/2/2 CLOSE TO SHOPPING AND COMMUNITY AMENITIES Great room, inside laundry and screened porch. $92,000 158D764/713653/415515 Call Capt.

It is signed and possibly dated, but I cannot see it clearly. The old glass is dirty from the inside and the border hides part of the date, which makes it difficult to read clearly. The signature looks like a P or F then N, and then possibly it looks like Hubbal I am not sure, but that is the best that I could make out. Under that are letters LXVI. The painting is of a lone man fishing in a small boat, on very still water with small hills surrounding him, and clouds and mountains in the background at sunset or sunrise. Also, the color is fairly dark and muted, and it is a very, very peaceful picture. I would appreciate any recommendations that you could give me.

Associated PressSigns welcome visitors to a model home as construction is under way at a housing development in Zelienople, Pa. About half of all homes with a mortgage have rates at about 4.3 percent or less, according to real estate data provider CoreLogic. It may not be worth it for those homeowners to refinance at current rates because refinancing carries its own costs and fees. Nela Richardson, chief economist at real estate brokerage Redfin, estimates that only homeowners with rates higher than 4.25 percent would see a net benefit from refinancing. Similarly, with many home borrowers already in the range of 3.5 percent to 4 percent on their mortgages, the spike in refinancing may not last very long, said Michael Fratantoni, the MBAs chief economist. For potential homebuyers, the lower rates could encourage reluctant purchasers to take the plunge. Their hesitation stems from the lingering effects of the Great Recession. Median household incomes have yet to completely rebound and remain below their 2007 levels after adjusting for inflation. Limited income gains have cut into the cash flow and down payment savings needed to purchase a home. Meanwhile, median home prices have risen 5.6 percent over the past 12 months to $209,700, and lenders have kept standards tight for making mortgage loans since the recession. Add to that the trend toward millennials putting off buying their first home, said Stan Humphries, chief economist of real estate firm Zillow. Economists expect sales of new homes in September to show a 7.1 percent drop from a year earlier when the Commerce Department issues a report Friday. A lot of buyers who are still on the sidelines are going to be encouraged by this, Richardson said of the falling mortgage rates. But MBAs Fratantoni stressed that home buying will largely be driven by what happens on the employment front. U.S. businesses have been hiring workers at a healthy pace, pushing down the unemployment rate to a six-year low of 5.9 percent. More hiring means more income for consumers to spend on buying homes, as well as a stronger economy overall. Still, the job market is far from full health. More than 7 million people hold part-time jobs but would like full-time work, up from 4.6 million before the downturn. And there are still twice as many people unemployed for longer than six months as there were before the recession. Before last week, many bankers, lenders and borrowers had assumed that mortgage rates would soon start rising closer to a two-decade average of 6 percent. That was based on expectations that the Federal Reserve would start raising its key short-term rate next year a move that likely would lead to higher mortgage rates. But that assumption fell suddenly into doubt as stocks plunged last Monday and Wednesday amid fears about global economic weaknesses, the spread of Ebola and the threat of the Islamic State militia group in the Middle East. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage 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 slipped to 2.91 percent from 2.92 percent. The fee was steady at 0.5 point. For a one-year ARM, the average rate rose to 2.41 percent from 2.38 percent. The fee held at 0.4 point.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014E15 E6SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE TERRI STEWART REALTOR MILLION $ SELLER! CENTURY 21 J.W.

It may even convince some Americans to buy their first home. Yet there are limits to how far the wave can extend. Millions of homeowners already refinanced in 2013, when the average 30-year mortgage rate stayed below 4 percent until mid-year. And the overall housing market remains hampered by tight mortgage credit, rising home prices and stagnating incomes. This week the average rate on the 30-year loan fell to 3.92 percent, mortgage company Freddie Mac reported Thursday. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, retreated to 3.08 percent from 3.18 percent. That is sparking a boomlet of homeowners looking to refinance as long-term mortgage rates plummet. Homeowners eager for a bargain rate are firing off inquiries to lenders. Applications for refis jumped 23 percent in the week ended Oct. 17 from the week before reaching their highest level since November 2013, figures compiled by the Mortgage Bankers Association show. The average 30-year mortgage rate nationwide that week breached the 4 percent threshold and hit 3.97 percent from 4.12 percent the previous week. It was the lowest level since June 2013. Deepening concern over the health of the world economy compelled investors to flee stocks and move into bonds. That pushed up prices of Treasury notes and suppressed their yields, which often pull along mortgage rates. But it remains to be seen whether the uptick in refinancing will turn into an extended boom. Collectors might be interested in novelty writing tools Dear John: I would like to know if you can assist me with any information on the current market interest, if any, for two different typesof items. The first is novelty pens and pencils. I have a small collection that belonged to my parents. All are in good to excellent condition. Some are quite unique and are from a variety of places. The collection includes a pristine set of pen and mechanical pencil from the 1945 World Series. I have no idea if anyone collects these items. The second is a Sunday School Primer, History ofOrrin Pierce which was published by the American Sunday School Union in the mid-1800s. Photos of both items are attached. I would deeply appreciate your assistance in providing me information as to how I could obtain a value on these items. D.B., Lecanto Dear D.B.: I suggest you contact a collecting club about your novelty pens and pencils. The website is www.pen collectorsofamerica.com. Depending on condition, the Sunday school primer would sell for less than $50. Dear John: My father died recently and my mother gave me a ring that had been in his possession. She said my great uncle brought it back from France after World War I. It appears to be aluminum and has an S-shaped flat top. There are holes on either side, and if you look in one hole at just the right angle, you can see the image of a naked woman standing with her arms raised, covering her eyes. There is a stairway in the background. Can you tell me anything about this and its worth?

Associated PressLong seen as having devastated Sun Belt cities, the subprime mortgage crisis unleashed turmoil on Ohio and other rural areas. Now federal officials are pledging regulatory attention and financial help. Subprime loans were distributed in the rural U.S. at even higher rates on average than in metropolitan counties. Much of it was concentrated in Appalachia and other areas stretching from Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky to Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas and the Great Plains, according to government data provided to The Associated Press by researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Middlebury College. Its a shift from conventional wisdom that larger metro areas were the hardest hit, due in part to gaps in federal mortgage data. But new research is helping shed light on many long-neglected rural counties with high rates of risky lending, coming as U.S. banks pledge relief to hard-hit communities as part of multibillion-dollar legal settlements for their role in selling shoddy mortgage bonds. Lawmakers want rural counties to get their fair share. Too many rural communities have been left behind, said Sen. Sherrod Brown, an Ohio Democrat. At the peak of the housing bubble in 2006, about 35 percent of home loans across all rural counties were given to borrowers deemed a higher credit risk, whose loans typically come with higher interest rates and fees. In metropolitan counties, the figure was 29 percent. margins. Leaves are pungently aromatic close up. The plant is toxic to livestock. Many small, multicolored flowers are borne in dense, flat-topped clusters about 1.5 inches in diameter. The corolla of individual flowers is a tube with four short, spreading lobes. Formerly popular as butterfly nectar plants, gardeners are now aware of Lantanas disruptive, negative impact on our environment. This global invader threatens to eliminate populations of native plants, animals and insects around the world. In Florida it has hybridized with rare native L. depressa, contaminated the gene pool and probably eliminated the latter from the wild. Over 100 forms, both cultivars and hybrids, are still available in the retail trade. Named cultivars claim to be sterile and incapable of producing seeds. The yellowflowered New Gold in my garden indeed has few seeds. But it is an aggressive, prostrate, groundhugging vigorous plant that roots down at any stem in contact with the ground. Although frost defoliates this plant and a freeze kills the widespreading stems, it returns with a vengeance in spring. I cut it back to the center crown and dig out any rooted stems. Broken roots will re-sprout shortly after the last frost in March. By fall, a single plant can reach over 6 feet in diameter. Mowing and pruning require perseverance. Well-intentioned critics can learn the facts on science-based control measures from the Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants at plants.ifas.ufl. edu/node223.

Blended bee-friendly lawns can be a beneficial compromise when landscaping.DEAN FOSDICK/ Associated Press invested in mortgage securities so-called skin in the game they wont be as likely to take excessive risks, the thinking goes. Fed Chair Janet Yellen said at Wednesdays meeting that skin in the game requirements give banks selling securities an economic incentive to monitor the credit quality of the loans tied to them. SEC Chair Mary Jo White said the regulators have found a balance between two objectives of the financial overhaul law: protecting investors and not unnecessarily inhibiting the residential mortgage market. Some critics warn that abandoning the 20 percent down payment condition could bring a return to the dangerous days of borrowers taking on heavy mortgage loans that they arent in a position to repay. Industry groups, meanwhile, are talking up the eased rules potential impact on lending. After three years of interagency haggling, the regulators final, compromise approach was to adopt the Consumer Financial Protection Bureaus definition of a qualified mortgage. It excludes the kind of risky practices that fueled the crisis, such as mortgages issued without any supporting documents from borrowers. Gallagher said before the SEC vote that the six agencies have disgracefully abdicated to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. He said the new rules could have dire consequences by encouraging the kinds of risky lending practices that helped spark the financial crisis. Republicans have strongly opposed the CFPB, which was created by the 2010 overhaul law, and Republican lawmakers had sought to curtail the agencys powers.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014E5 E16SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000JMTW 5569 W.

RULESContinued from Page E3 DEANFOSDICK Associated PressTurf grass may be an attractive groundcover for homeowners, but it doesnt hold much appeal for pollinators. Add some broadleaf plants with flowers to the mix, however, and its a different story: great forage for the birds and the bees. Lower maintenance, too. Bee lawns arent 100 percent flowers. They have some grass included, said Mary Meyer, an extension horticulturist and professor with the University of Minnesota. While bees dont use grass, humans do. Most flowers, if you start walking on them, will die. Clover will tolerate a bit of foot traffic. Nitrogen-rich Dutch white clover generally is considered the best companion to cool-season lawn grasses when the objective is attracting pollinators, said Mace Vaughan, pollinator program director for The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation in Portland, Oregon. You can mow it and keep it relatively tame in a lawn, and bees love it, Vaughan said. The good thing about Dutch white clover is that it is good (to grow) across most of the U.S. There was a time when many turf seed mixes included clover. Then came the rise of lawn purity: Yards were designed to look like the manicured greens on a golf course. All grass. No broadleaf plants. These formalized landscapes were attractive but contained little food value for foraging honeybees. Now that clean lawn ethic is giving way to herb and vegetable gardens, a desire for minimal yard maintenance and concerns about steep declines in pollinating insects. People are opting for smaller lawns, blended lawns or no lawns. The trend is urban meadows, where homeowners take out their lawns and replace them with Clover comeback: Bee lawns gaining attention Gardening approach aims to provide attractive plants for pollinators See BEE-FRIENDLY / Page E8 JANEContinued from Page E14 Rural areas seek piece of subprime settlement See SUBPRIME / Page E17

The rural Ohio counties of Muskingum and Hardin ranked among the nations highest in subprime lending, with more than 40 percent of the loans high cost. More than a dozen of Ohios other counties had subprime lending rates of 30 percent or greater. Las Vegas Clark County, a poster child for the subprime mortgage crisis, had a 23 percent subprime lending rate. The numbers reinforce what private groups have long said: The Buckeye State was tops in the share of home loans in foreclosure. With a cultural emphasis on open space and owning a home, many rural residents jumped to get subprime loans at initial affordable terms during the mid-2000s, only to have fortunes disappear as housing boom turned to bust. In rural U.S. counties, that has led to higher vacancy rates, population declines and a weak rebound in housing prices. Economic pain still lingers. In rural Rushsylvania, Ohio, Larry McKirahan, 52, expressed frustration with his subprime loan. McKirahan and his wife took out loans beginning in 1999 to help pay for a fourbedroom, 4,100-square-foot home before refinancing in 2005. McKirahan says he was later surprised by the monthly payments. After losing his factory job in 2008, McKirahan filed for bankruptcy reorganization in 2010, which temporarily stopped foreclosure. Were at the mercy of the system, said McKirahan, describing lenders unresponsive in explaining the loan terms. Now a truck driver, McKirahan worries he may owe a hefty sum on more than $200,000 in loans. This is our home, we built it and raised our family in it, but we dont know how much longer well be able to stay. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau recently expressed concern with high numbers of rural borrowers who take out high-cost loans. Subprime lending is showing signs of a return. Paul Nikodem, head strategist at Nomura Securities International, said there is slow but growing supply for less traditional loans aimed at customers who may not qualify under the governments newly tightened borrower rules. Recent federal mortgage data analyzed by the nonprofit group Housing Assistance Council suggest that higher rates of rural subprime lending persist. The bureau is continuing to carefully monitor all aspects of the mortgage market, including rural areas, said Samuel Gilford, a CFPB spokesman. Amy Lambdin, 32, a bankruptcy lawyer in Hardin County, describes rising debt as a norm. Foreclosed homes still dot the landscape, and residents describe families who sometimes disappear almost overnight, especially after cutbacks at a local auto plant in 2009. While bankruptcy filings have recently leveled off, Lambdin says shes not certain its because of improving family finances. Theyre just too poor to file for bankruptcy, she said. RYANTRARES Daily JournalFRANKLIN, Ind. Twenty headbobbing chickens pecked through the yard, squawking and hunting for food. The birds walked with an awkward stop-start gait. When a chicken spotted something worth eating in the grass, its head dipped quickly down to grab the corn kernel, blade of grass or worm with its beak. But as an added bonus, the chickens even became a form of entertainment, bobbing, pecking and playing together in their fenced-in run. Franklin resident Christina Fletcher called it Chicken TV. Thats the slang with chicken coopers. Its better than anything you could watch, she told the Daily Journal. You watch them, and they do the funniest things. The Fletchers are part of a growing movement starting their own chicken coops in their backyards. As the concept of local food and sustainability gains popularity, people are bringing the chicken coop off the farm and into the city. Theyre raising backyard chickens, setting up chicken runs and harvesting their own eggs. Laws in cities such as Greenwood and Franklin still prevent homeowners from having chickens in their backyard. But as demand for urban coops grows, more and more people are pushing for changes to the rules. Theyre really kind of funny. There is far more personality with the chicken than I ever really thought, she said. Theyve really been a fun addition, beyond just for the eggs and for the fun. Fletcher and her family moved to Franklin about 4 1/2 years ago, so that the family could be closer to her grandparents. Generations of Fletchers family had kept chickens on farms in southern Johnson County, and she wanted to do the same. Ive always been interested in animals on the farm, and I tried to think of what I could convince my husband to let me have. Chickens were the easiest thing, she said. Living just south of the city, Fletcher put together a coop and chicken run. With a flock of 20 birds, they had a ready supply of fresh eggs. Chickens lay an egg for every 14 hours of sunlight, so people can get an egg each day. That proved to be the best part. If youve never had a fresh egg, theyre light years ahead of stores. Store eggs are as much as 30 days old already, Fletcher said. A fresh egg is firmer, the white stands up more, the yolk is a deep orange color. They have better flavor. Chickens also serve as pest control. All chickens eat bugs and can keep lawn grubs, termites and grasshoppers out of the yard. One breed, called the Buckeye, has been known to hunt mice and snakes as well.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014E17 E4SUNDAY, OCTOBER26, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE C ARL M ANUCCI 352-302-9787 S USAN M ULLEN 352-422-2133 000JM7L Terms 6 Months or More Social Membership included with all Rentals Terra Vista & Brentwood Rentals!

The family recently moved into a rental house inside Franklin city limits and can no longer have a coop themselves. But Fletcher wasnt ready to give up on backyard chickens. After reading about services elsewhere that rented chicks to people to keep in their own backyards, she started her own chicken-rental business. The Fresh Egg provides interested urban farmers with a coop, two egg-laying hens and feed. Fletcher has a friend with who keeps her chickens for her. She purchased her flock from area farmers as chicks, and then rents them to customers from May until November, giving them a taste of backyard farming without making too much of a commitment. Its for people who want to try chickens, to see if theyre interested or if theyll like it. Maybe they want their kids to try it, Fletcher said. The interest in backyard chickens has only been tempered by laws and regulations in certain cities that prohibit keeping chickens in city limits. Franklin, Greenwood and Whiteland all have rules preventing people from keeping chickens in small backyards. Residents have attempted to change the rules to allow small flocks of hens. But Franklins city council voted against changes to its rules, and Indianapolis is one of the communities that allows people to have chickens. Maggie Goeglein has been raising chickens since 2010 in her Rocky Ripple home. She heard about the trend of urban chicken coops, did some research and decided to start a flock with four chicks. I loved the idea of having fresh eggs from the backyard. I like DIY stuff, and having a garden, and this is certainly a way to jump into this, Goeglein said. Since starting, she has plunged fully into the world of chickens. She has connected with people all over the Indianapolis area who have shared tips about which breeds fare best in Indiana or how to use the birds to keep a yard free of pests. Andrew Brake keeps a flock of chickens at his Broad Ripple-area home. He has taught a class, How to Raise Backyard Chickens, for IUPUIs Community Learning Network and organizes a tour of urban chicken coops to show how its done. He started a business, Nap Town Chickens, to help generate interest in backyard coops, and help homeowners and schools throughout Marion County. Our goal is a coop in every yard and a fresh egg on every plate, he said. The big advantage of raising your own chickens is having fresh eggs on demand. When he wants to put together breakfast, he simply walks to his backyard to grab eggs that are days old. Nothing in the grocery store is that fresh, he said. essential. You guessed it: One bad packaging job cost me. Then there is theft. How do they sleep at night, or is that when they are hard at work? I will never understand that chosen way of life, nor is there any sympathy. With 16 cameras and Gypsy, we dont miss much, but theft does happen. I once followed an individual down the mall and his only interest was in the cases and identifying camera locations. We made a note of the date and time, and we have pictures. For me, the worst part of theft is that we greet every customer and thank them when they leave. The thief also leaves with a smile. This months story is from Cheryl Anne Reed: I had always wondered what would happen if a set of shelves fell over. Well one day, to avoid stepping on a box of $10 Christmas ornaments, I backed into a case full of china and porcelain in my shop. The only thing I could do was experience the moment as the shelves toppled over in slow motion, from the crashing sounds of breaking china right down to the last piece skittering across the floor. Inventory control. And then I have to pick up the pieces.Steve Barnes owns and, along with his shop dog Gypsy, operates Olde Inverness Antiques.

Real EstateDIGEST Associated PressWASHINGTON Federal regulators are proceeding with new rules that ease guidelines for banks selling mortgage securities and could mean fewer borrowers will need to make hefty down payments. The Securities and Exchange Commission voted 3-2 Wednesday to adopt the rules, which six federal agencies have been working on since 2011. The SECs two Republican commissioners, Daniel Gallagher and Michael Piwowar, opposed adoption. The Federal Reserve governors approved the rules on a 5-0 vote later in the day. Three other agencies adopted the rules Tuesday. With the financial crisis and subprime mortgage bust receding further into history, the regulators are looking to inject more life into the still-recovering housing market. The rules govern the amount of risk banks must take on when they package and sell mortgage securities in a multitrillion-dollar market. In the final rules, the regulators have dropped a key requirement: a 20percent down payment from the borrower if a bank didnt hold at least 5 percent of the mortgage securities tied to those loans on its books. The final rules include the less stringent condition that borrowers not carry excessive debt relative to their income. The rules for the market for mortgage securities will take effect in a year. For other kinds of securities such as those bundling together auto loans or commercial loans, which dont allow banks an exemption from the 5-percent rule, the effective date is in two years. The rules were mandated by the overhaul law enacted in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. The idea was to limit the kind of risky lending that brought on the crisis.
