Citrus County is currently in need of a modern, clean, safe shooting facility for its many sportsmen, firearms enthusiasts and law-enforcement professionals, said Ron Goodenow, who wants to build one. Ron and Michele Goodenow, longtime owners of American Pro Diving Center in Crystal River, have submitted plans to the county for approval to develop such a facility. We will have 8,700 square feet under roof, Ron Goodenow said, speaking this week to the Chronicle and showing diorama models of the project. We have an indoor archery range. We have a trap and skeet field in the back, a pistol range behind the building and a rifle range on the long parcel. The Goodenows found a 30-acre site off County Road 490 opposite the junction with Rock Crusher Road in Lecanto for the project. It borders the Withlacoochee Forest. The archery range would have computer-controlled 3-D pop-up targets. Optional computer-controlled turning targets would be a feature of the outdoor pistol range. The rifle range would offer distances up to 600 feet with state-ofthe-art electronic scoring. In addition, the site would include fields for competitive trap and skeet shooting. A separate range has been designated for use by law enforcement officers. Its a project weve been working on for a year, Ron Goodenow said. Couple plans firing range Plans include state-of-the-art facility See RANGE / Page A2 A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterCarolyn Mills warns area residents that she has twice been a target in scams in recent days. Those looking to part Mills from her money got a surprise when the tenacious Citrus Springs resident pressed them for details and took note of names and telephone numbers. The first call she received two weeks ago was from a John Bones of Jamaica, who informed her that she won $2.5 million from Readers Digest. I havent even entered, she said in recounting her conversation. Regardless, he advised the money would arrive by way of Federal Express and all she needed was to have a $99 gift card available to give the driver. When asked why, he said FedEx charges for delivery. What he likely didnt realize was that Mills obtained the number he was dialing from through caller ID. She then called the Attorney Generals Office, at (866) 966-7226, and the Scam Hotline, at (877) 382-4357, where she reported his telephone number and the discussion. She received one final call from John Bones, who asked her to tell others to stop calling him. She later tried to call him back only to find that his phone line was blocked. The following week, she received a call from someone purporting to be with Publishers Clearing House. They had everything down pat, she said, noting that she was provided a claim number and a tollfree telephone number that was answered by people claiming to be with Publishers Clearing House. This time, she was told she had won $650,000 last August and was advised they had been previously unable to contact her. Mills said she told the caller that that was unusual since shed not been away for any extended periods. However, she was told to contact a purported U.S. Customs agent at Miami International Airport to claim the letter. She contacted the agent, who told her since her winnings were more than $10,000, she had to pay a fee to claim her winnings. She was told to go to either Sweetbay or WinnDixie to get a money order to pay $3,250 and to send it See SCAMS / Page A2 Associated PressMONTPELIER, Vt. The full measure of Hurricane Irenes fury came into focus Monday as the death toll jumped to 38, New England towns battled epic floods and millions faced the dispiriting prospect of several days without electricity. From North Carolina to Maine, communities cleaned up and took stock of the uneven and hard-topredict costs of a storm that spared the nations biggest city a nightmare scenario, only to deliver a historic wallop to towns well inland. In New York City, where people had braced for a disaster-movie scene of water swirling around skyscrapers, the subways and buses were up and running again in time for the Monday morning commute. And to the surprise of many New Yorkers, things went pretty smoothly. But in New England, landlocked Vermont contended with what its governor called the worst flooding in a century. Streams also raged out of control in upstate New York. In many cases, the moment of maximum danger arrived well after the storm had passed, as rainwater made its way into rivers and streams and turned them into torrents. Irene dumped up to 11 inches of rain on Vermont and more than 13 in parts of New York. We were expecting heavy rains, said Bobbi-Jean Jeun of Clarksville, a hamlet near Albany, N.Y. We were expecting flooding. We werent expecting devastation. It looks like somebody set a bomb off. Meanwhile, the 11-state death toll, which had stood at 21 as of Sunday night, rose sharply as bodies were pulled from floodwaters and people were electrocuted by downed power lines. The tally of Irenes destruction mounted, too. An apparently vacant home exploded in an evacuated, flooded area in Pompton Lakes, N.J., early Monday, and firefighters had to battle the flames from a boat. In the Albany, N.Y., suburb of Guilderland, police rescued two people Monday after their car was swept away. Rescuers found them three hours later, clinging to trees along the swollen creek. Its going to take time to recover from a storm of this magnitude, President Barack Obama warned as he promised the government would do everything in its power to help people get back on their feet. For many people, the aftermath could prove more painful than the storm itself.

The building will contain two large classrooms where people can learn safety and marksmanship. Summer educational programs are planned for children. It also would house retail space displaying products, accessories, a gunsmith and archery repairs. As the range is a little remote, plans call for an onsite food vendor serving Southern-style barbecue food. This is quite a departure from diving. We have our loves, diving being one, Michele Goodenow said. Our son got involved in hunting and archery. We told him that if hes going to start doing this, then he has to understand it. We had gotten him into the hunter safety course. But the course was not close by. We had to go to Hernando County, Ron Goodenow said. Their son, Michael, learned about weapons and how to maintain them. We started picking up as a family, Michele Goodenow said. Just like when we dive. We really fell in love with it as a sport. We compete for long range. As a family, the Goodenows have gone to such places as Quantico in Virginia for competitions with long-range rifles at distances of 1,000 yards. We shoot .50 BMGs for competitions, Michele Goodenow said. The Goodenows said they have gone to many classes to learn safety and marksmanship. The problem is, we had to keep going out of the area, Michele Goodenow said. The couple looked for property where shooting would pose no difficulties. They found adjoining excavation sites that offer safety and absorb sound. Before they went ahead, they said they visited the nine families who live near the property. They said it would be all right if the shooting would be between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Ron Goodenow said. The decibel levels should be no more than for active mining, Ron Goodenow said, and the high walls would absorb sound. Some of the neighbors have helped him plant more trees around the perimeter as part of the sound barrier, he said. For safety, range officers would be on site to oversee the shooting. Plans also call for roofs over shooting stands to prevent firing above the top of the excavation. Culverts would be used on the rifle range, where marksmen would aim through tunnels at long-range targets. Heights around the targets are well above the safety requirements of the National Rifle Association. Casings would be collected so that no metals would leach into the soil. A net around the skeet and trap shooting areas would help collect materials. The Goodenows have shown their plans to Citrus County Sheriffs Office staff. Lt. Phil Royal, training director, said he has reviewed plans for safety for the surrounding area, not only the people using the range. Seems like they have dotted their Is and crossed their Ts on safety, Royal said. As for sheriffs officers using the range, Royal said, If we had the opportunity to use it and it had more practical benefit and no financial concerns, we would consider it. The $1.1 million project would create 30 jobs, the Goodenows said, and would bring more tourism to the county to help other businesses. The range would be open to the public on feebased access, offering membership packages. Precon struction memberships should be available soon. If plans are approved, construction could start early next year and take nine months to complete. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at (352) 564-2916 or cvan email@example.com.

N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS Although most of the residents of Citrus County didnt feel the ash raining down from the ruins of the World Trade Center twin towers in New York on Sept. 11, 2001, we all felt the impact. On Monday, the city of Inverness and Citrus County officials, along with members of the National Association of Retired Law Enforcement Officers (NARLEO), current law-enforcement, fire and rescue personnel and various members of the community met at the site of a permanent 9/11 memorial at Liberty Park, honoring the victims of the terrorist attacks 10 years ago that changed our nation. We gather at Liberty Park today to break ground on a memorial commemorating the tragic events on 9/11, Inverness mayor Bob Plaisted said. This memorial epitomizes the great American spirit of freedom and perseverance to which this park is named. He added that the memorial, to be built by Central Florida Monument Co., will be dedicated to the courage, strength and indomitable American spirit shown by those who perished and by those who persevered that day. One of the features of the memorial will be a piece of steel, rescued from the ruins of the World Trade Center by Joe Jurgens, who had gone there to search for his son, 26-year-old Tommy, a New York State court officer who died trying to save others. Jurgens also lost a cousin in the carnage. Andy Tarpey, one of the memorial planners, told the crowd of about 75, Joe searched for days in the wreckage. He came back with a piece of steel, but not his son or his cousin. Jurgens has donated the steel as part of the permanent memorial, which is scheduled to be completed in mid-September. Fundraising continues to cover the approximate $10,000 cost of the memorial. Tarpey noted that the Port Authority Police Signal 8-2 Club of Florida donated $500 Monday. To contribute to the 9/11 memorial at Liberty Park, send a check to the city of Inverness, care of the 9/11 Memorial Monument Fund, 212 W. Main St., Inverness, FL 34450.

A story on Page A1 of Sundays edition, Balancing act with box and boot, warrants clarification. According to the Supervisor of Elections Office, redistricting plans would necessitate no split ballots for county commissioners and school board members, as the districts for both boards were aligned to the same map for voters ease, and there are no single-member districts. Therefore, all voters vote for all the seats for both county commission and school board.

Chronicle file Citrus County has recorded a wide range of rainfall amounts from one side of the county to the other during the month of August according to Bay News 9. Chassahowitzka recorded the largest amount of rain, with more than 10.7 inches. Holder is at the other end of th e scale, measuring the lowest rain total with just over 3.5 inches. M ATTHEWB ECK Staff WriterWhile most of the Tampa Bay region has received more than the average amount of rainfall for the month of August, Mike Clay, chief meteorologist for Bay News 9, said Citrus County has only received 73 percent of the normal amount it should have during the month. Weve got a wide range of rain totals for the month in Citrus, Clay said Monday afternoon. A county-high amount of rainfall has been reported from the Chassahowitzka area at 10.79 inches for the month. The lowest rainfall total in the county is in Holder with 3.53 inches. Nearby Citrus Springs has also been much drier than other parts of the county. Inverness reported 5.48 inches, Clay said, adding, But those readings could change in the next minute. Overall, Citrus County and counties to the south are above the average for the month, he said. Hernando County has recorded 100.6 percent of the average rainfall for August, while Pasco County has received 123 percent. Pinellas has recorded 120 percent of the normal average for the month. Looking forward, Clay said he is expecting to see a wetter than normal September and October. The Florida Division of Forestry fire-danger index for Citrus County is posted at level one or low. About three-quarters of the state, roughly from Marion County south to the Florida Keys, is listed in the same low-threat level. Twelve counties in the Panhandle are at the most severe fire danger level at five or very high, and two more are at the high level. Fifteen other counties, mostly in North Florida, are in the moderate range. According to the Division of Forestry, a decrease in wildfire activity is expected through the rest of the summer due to the more consistent rainfall across the region.

Although the state was spared the torrential rains associated with Hurricane Irene, there could be some more wet weather on the way. Meanwhile, what once was Tropical Storm Jose has dissipated in the Atlantic a day after brushing past Bermuda. A new depression is forecast to become Tropical Storm Katia the name that replaced Katrina in the rotating storm roster because of the catastrophic damage from the 2005 storm. This system is churning toward the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic and Caribbean oceans. Forecasters are not sure the track it will take of if it will strike the U.S. or elsewhere. The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Monday the depression is south of the Cape Verde Islands and could become a tropical storm later Monday, possibly reaching hurricane strength by Thursday, though its still far out in the Atlantic. Hurricane Center spokesman Dennis Feltgen said its too early to know if it would hit the U.S. Chronicle reporter Matthew Beck can be reached at (352) 5642919 or mbeck@ chronicleonline.com.

COST: $100 CONTACT: Call SCORE, (352) 249-1236 Meteorologist says Citrus County rainfall above average for August Texas Phoenix Palm Decline could spell frond farewell Associated PressST. PETERSBURG An insect with a disgusting habit is killing palm trees in the Tampa Bay area and experts are worried the disease transmitted by the bugs will affect trees around the state. The first Florida sighting of Texas Phoenix Palm Decline was in 2005 in Manatee County. Since then, its been detected in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Polk counties, although experts say Manatee County is still the hardest-hit area. According to University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, the disease is spread by a planthopper insect, but the exact kind of bug isnt yet known. The insects pierce the palm leaves, then vomit and the vomit spreads the bacteria that causes the disease. The small bacteria, called phytoplasma, affects the bottom palm leaves first. Those leaves turn yellow and eventually die, then the bacteria affects the young spear leaf and eventually the entire tree is killed. Its pretty scary, said Brian Dick, assistant superintendent for parks in the city of Lakeland. Weve invested quite heavily in our palm trees over the past 25 years. To have a disease come out of nowhere and kill our palm trees, its pretty disappointing. Dick estimates that 20 percent to 30 percent of the citys 700 Phoenix palms a type of tree that includes the expensive and showy Sylvester palm are infected with the disease. An unknown number of sabal palms within the city are also infected, he said. Monica L. Elliott, a professor of plant pathology at the University of Floridas Fort Lauderdale Research and Education Center, said its troubling that the state tree the native sabal palm is also affected by the disease. While landscapers and cities can manage the condition with antibiotic injections, thats only likely to happen with expensive trees. If the condition spreads throughout the state, Elliot said it could change the entire Florida landscape. We would be losing a large population of a native palm that is found throughout the entire state. We wouldnt see it in the natural areas, she said. Elliott and other UF researchers are trying to determine which planthopper insect is responsible for the Texas Phoenix Palm Decline. The insect and disease was first detected 30 years ago in Texas. Texas Phoenix Palm Decline is similar to lethal yellowing, a disease which largely affects coconut palms in South Florida. Wetter weather ahead Clarifications From staff and wire reports

In North Carolina, where Irene blew ashore along the Outer Banks on Saturday before heading for New York and New England, 1,000 people were still in emergency shelters, awaiting word on their homes. At the same time, nearly 5 million homes and businesses in a dozen states were still without electricity, and utilities warned it might be a week or more before some people got their power back. Once the refrigerator gets warm, my insulin goes bad. I could go into diabetic shock. Its kind of scary because we dont know how long its going to be out for, said Patricia Dillon, a partially paralyzed resident of a home for the disabled in Milford, Conn., where the electricity was out and a generator failed. Her voice cracking, she added: Im very tired, stressed out, aggravated, scared. Russ Furlong of Barrington, R.I., ruefully remembered the two weeks he went without power after Hurricane Bob 20 years ago. Hopefully, we wont have to wait that long this time, he said. Last night we had candles. It was romantic. It was fun. But that feeling doesnt last too long. Up and down the Eastern Seaboard, commuters and vacationers found their travel plans scrambled. Airlines warned it would be days before the thousands of passengers stranded by Irene find their way home. Throughout the region, hundreds of roads were impassable because of flooding or fallen trees, and some bridges had simply given way, including a 156-year-old hand-hewn, wooden, covered bridge across Schoharie Creek in Blenheim, N.Y. In all, more than a dozen towns in Vermont and at least three in New York remained cut off by flooded roads and bridges.

Associated PressNEW YORK They were life and death decisions made by politicians, bureaucrats and everyday people. Hurricane Irene was barreling towards the East Coast. It was big. It was scary. Flooding was certain. The choice: Flee or stay put. Disaster experts unanimously said evacuating was the right choice and it saved lives. But these were tough nail-biting calls that are now being second-guessed. In New York City, it was debated during a critical staff meeting in City Hall where the deadly specter of Katrina and New Orleans was raised. On Friday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, saying he worried about deadly flooding in low-lying areas, made the first ever call for hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers to leave their homes. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was trademark blunt in his order: Get the hell off the beach. Since Irene didnt hit with the advertised fury, those decisions and others up and down the Eastern Seaboard are being re-examined. Experts in hurricanes and disaster preparations and risk analysis, though, only had praise Monday, pointing out it takes a long time to evacuate densely populated areas and the hurricanes forecasts left little room for error. Second-guessing is easy, making those evacuation calls is not, said George Washington University risk sciences professor George Gray, a former senior Environmental Protection Agency official in the George W. Bush administration. Given available information, I think risk analysts would say the right choices were made. Traditionally, larger areas and more people have be evacuated than turns out to be necessary, said Florida State University professor Jay Baker, who has studied hurricane evacuation. Thats just an artifact of the uncertainty, said Baker. Meteorologists have gotten pretty good at figuring out a storms path, but predicting its strength is a struggle. They nailed Irenes track but it weakened more than forecast as it moved north. Irene was a very dangerous storm, said Kathleen Tierney, director of the Natural Hazards Center at the University of Colorado, saying this storm was handled far better than 2005s Katrina. I dont think theres any doubt that lives were saved. Jack and Sue Holloway are probably two of those lives. The Delaware residents dithered about staying at their beach home in coastal Lewes. They decided to stay, and then changed their minds when Delaware Gov. Jack Markell urged an evacuation at a news conference. Saturday night, strong winds from what officials believe was a tornado spun off by Irene damaged several homes in Lewes, ripping off the top of the Holloways home, blasting apart the garage. Along the Connecticut shore, East Haven firefighters went door-to-door to tell residents to leave. Some residents wouldnt go and needed to be rescued, Fire Chief Doug Jackson said. Twenty-five beachfront homes were destroyed. They jeopardize themselves when they stay there. They also jeopardize my people, Fire Chief Jackson said. Now I have to make rescues that should not have been necessary. East Havens Bill Cowles, 55, never considered leaving his home. The water rose to just below the electrical sockets on the first floor and he could see neighbors houses crashing around him. When the water started coming in the front door, I knew we were in trouble, he said. Still, Cowles said he was glad he stayed because he had to chase away people who were watching the storm and taking pictures from his yard. New Jerseys governor was certain he did the right thing. I want to make one thing really clear for the folks who will now say, Well, there wasnt abject destruction up and down the coastline, therefore we shouldnt have left. Christie said Sunday. Let me tell you, those types of secondguessers wont be tolerated. We saved lives. Officials are always going to err on the side of caution, said Susan Cutter, director of the Hazards and Vulnerability Research Institute at the University of South Carolina. Emergency officials, in general, plan for a hurricane at least one category higher than whats forecast, said Dennis Feltgen, a meteorologist and spokesman at the National Hurricane Center. New Yorks Bloomberg later explained that timing was key in his decision. He was faced with getting 370,000 people out of lowlying areas before the subway was shut down by the governor. He said, People need time to leave, to make decisions, to plan with their family. You cant just say go and have everybody go. His deputy mayor for operations, Cas Holloway, said two factors were forcing officials hands: more than half of the citys residents dont have cars and the evacuation zone included 7,000 people in hospitals, nursinghomes and senior citizen centers. We had limited time frames to move the populations we had to move, he said Monday. While the orders came from authorities, the decision was ultimately up to individuals. Unlike Southerners, those in the Northeast arent used to the summertime drill of hurricanes and evacuation zones. Decades of study show that it is not unusual to get only half to two-thirds of the people to actually evacuate, Florida States Baker said. And because of that weve been lucky in this country not to have huge losses of life like we saw in Katrina he said. Some people fear that storms that seem to peter out like Irene will only make that worse. But Baker said thats not the case. In past storms such as in 1985, when western Florida evacuated three times and didnt get hit the cry wolf syndrome did not materialize, Baker said. The same number of people evacuated for each of those storms. And post-storm surveys show only around 5 percent of people would change their decision. Every year, emergency managers and elected officials come to the National Hurricane Center in Miami and learn about the complexities of hurricane forecasts. They practice scenarios much like Irenes, said retired center director Max Mayfield. Mayfield said the many evacuation orders showed that they understood what they were taught. They knew they had to get people out early, Mayfield said. Cutter said the death count from Irene, so far around three dozen, is extraordinarily low considering where it hit, the rainfall, tornadoes and the large size of the storm. For Bloomberg, thats the real key. He said Sunday, the bottom line is, I would make the same decisions again without hesitation. Experts say evacuation was right call Unpopular decisions likely saved lives Associated Press Firefighter Mandy Drake clears a storm drain Monday in front of the fire department in Waterbury, Vt., in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene.

Associated PressOMAHA, Neb. A scorching drought in the southern Plains has caused hay prices to soar, benefiting farmers to the north but forcing many ranchers to make a difficult choice between paying high prices or selling their cattle. Ranchers in much of Texas, Oklahoma and even Kansas are having to pay inflated prices for hay and then shell out even more to have it trucked hundreds of miles from Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska or South Dakota. Their only other options are to reduce the size of their herds or move cattle to rented pastures in another state. Its pretty ugly, said Don Davis, who raises grass-fed beef on his ranch about 75 miles northwest of San Antonio. Davis said he used to think last years dry weather couldnt get worse, but this years recordsetting drought has put even more pressure on ranchers. Parts of Texas havent received any rain since last fall, and forecasters predict the drought will last at least through November. The situation isnt much better in western Oklahoma, southern New Mexico and parts of southern Kansas. Officials say only a handful of Texas 254 counties received enough rain to grow hay this year, so significantly less is available at the same time demand has skyrocketed because pastures are parched. Thats why the average price of hay climbed to $170 per ton this summer from $112 per ton last July, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture statistics. But many ranchers are paying much more because the price doesnt include shipping costs. Hay has gone up tremendously in price, and its hard to get, said Jay OBrien, who runs a ranch near Amarillo, Texas. Continuing to buy hay at those prices could be a recipe for bankruptcy, so ranchers have been selling off calves and cows of calfbearing age even though they know it will be costly to rebuild their herds later. Associated PressWASHINGTON The version of plague that caused the Black Death in 14th century Europe may now be extinct, researchers report, but other forms remain in circulation today. The plague that ravaged Europe wiped out nearly a third to two-thirds of the population according to various estimates. Its cause was eventually identified as the bacteria Yersinia pestis. A new study of DNA from people who died of the plague in London has now identified the form of the germ that caused their deaths, the researchers report in Tuesdays edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The remains of more than 100 plague victims buried between 1348 and 1350 in the East Smithfield burial site showed evidence of a strain of Y. pestis, according to the researchers led by Hendrik N. Poinar of McMaster University in Canada, and Johannes Krause of Tuebingen University in Germany. Our data reveal that the Black Death in medieval Europe was caused by a variant of Y. pestis that may no longer exist, the researchers wrote. That doesnt mean its safe to relax, noted Ole Georg Moseng of the Institute of Health and Society at the University of Oslo, Norway. Other forms are still dangerous, although it varies by strain, he said. The germ is carried by fleas. The reasons plague no longer causes widespread deaths are that it is fairly easy to suppress, both by antibiotics and by means of isolation and pesticides, said Moseng, who was not part of the research team. Since 1954, he noted, there have been yearly outbreaks in Brazil, Congo, Madagascar, Myanmar, Peru, the U.S. and Vietnam. Whether Y. pestis was behind the Black Death had been questioned by other researchers in the 1970s and 1980s. This report joins other recent studies that reaffirmed Y. pestis as the cause, Moseng agreed. While the study was not able to sequence the entire genome of the medieval plague, the amount they were able to study confirmed it is the same disease as the Y. pestis circulating today, Poinar said. With any ancient pathogen, understanding why it might have been so virulent in the past is important to be able to predict possible reemergence today, Poinar said. If it did ... perhaps we might be prepared. Wayne Clark, 75 HERNANDO The Service of Remembrance for Mr. Wayne C.

Study: Medieval plague may be extinct The reasons plague no longer causes widespread deaths are that it is fairly easy to suppress, both by antibiotics and by means of isolation and pesticides. Associated PressWELLINGTON, New Zealand The wayward emperor penguin dubbed Happy Feet craned his head, flapped his flippers and seemed a little perturbed as he started his journey home to cooler southern waters Monday. The penguin was moved from the Wellington Zoo, where staff has cared for him for the past two months to the research ship Tangaroa, which will release him after four days at sea at a latitude of 51 degrees south. Happy Feet has been placed in a custom-made crate for the journey and will be kept cool with 60 buckets of ice. Hell be fed fish. The Tangaroa is New Zealands largest research vessel and was already scheduled to head into frigid southern waters to check on fish numbers in order to set fishing quotas. The 3-foot-tall penguin was found on a New Zealand beach June 20, far from his Antarctic feeding grounds. He was moved to the zoo after he became ill from eating sand that he likely mistook for snow. Hes since regained weight and been cleared to be returned to the wild. Lisa Argilla, a veterinarian who has helped nurse the penguin back to health, said he has a stronger and stroppier attitude than when he first arrived at the zoo, when his demeanor seemed flat and his feather condition was poor. Hes definitely a survivor, she said. Hes also popular. Viewers have watched him eat, sleep and waddle on a zoo webcam. And hes been fitted with a GPS tracker so people can follow his progress online after he is released. Hes brought a lot of hope and joy to people, said Karen Fifield, Wellington Zoos chief executive. His story has driven to the heart of what makes us human. The boats skipper Richard ODriscoll said once the Tangaroa has reached the drop-off point, he will likely cut the engines and then release the penguin from the deck into the sea using a makeshift canvas slide. More than 1,700 people went to the zoo Sunday to bid goodbye to Happy Feet, who was visible in a glassed area while getting final medical checks. The zoo has covered the cost of his stay with about $28,000 in donations. Argilla said she will miss Happy Feet but hopes it will be the last she sees of him. By next year, she said, he will be old enough to find a mate and breed. Follow Happy Feets progress at http://www.niwa.co.nz or http://www.sirtrack.com.

Miami Herald cuts 13 more jobs, institutes furloughs MIAMI The Miami Herald is cutting more jobs. In an email Monday, Herald Publisher David Landsberg told staff that the companys efforts to develop new revenue streams arent enough to offset prolonged revenue declines. Landsberg said 13 jobs companywide will be eliminated and about 20 other vacant positions wont be filled. It wasnt clear how many of those jobs were in the newsrooms of the Herald and the Spanish-language El Nuevo Herald Also, all remaining full-time employees will be required to take a weeklong furlough without pay between September and the end of the year. The Herald has already made significant cuts to save money. More than 200 employees have been laid off since 2009. Remaining staff have endured pay cuts and furloughs. The Herald is owned by the McClatchy Co. Police: Man stole landlords goods, held yard saleBALM A Hillsborough County man has been charged with stealing $30,000 worth of his landlords belongings and then selling them at a yard sale on the victims property. Police said the 54-year-old suspect lived in a trailer on the property. They said he stole an antique gun, tools, equipment and other items from the victims home, barn and garage. They said he then held a yard sale earlier this month. The man has been charged with armed burglary, grand theft and dealing in stolen property.Theft of 175,000 feet of copper wire leaves parts of I-95 darkWEST PALM BEACH Parts of Interstate 95 in Palm Beach County have been left in the dark after thieves stole underground copper wiring needed for overhead lighting. Authorities said 18 sites have been hit by thieves who took 175,000 feet of wiring during the past four to six months. The Palm Beach Post reported the problem is not limited to Palm Beach County. The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries has set up a website where law enforcement authorities in the United States and Canada can report thefts. The information is relayed to recycling plants within 100 miles of the incident. Police: Woman asked for ID pulls out bag of marijuana CLEARWATER Police said they asked a 29-year-old woman for identification. Then, they said, she pulled out a bag of marijuana. They threw her in jail. Clearwater police said the woman was sitting in a car in a hotel parking lot at 3 a.m. Saturday when an officer approached and asked what she was doing. She told them she was talking to her boyfriend and thinking about renting a room. The officer asked for her ID card and police said she went into her purse and pulled out the card along with a bag of pot, which she quickly tried to hide. The officer saw it, however, and searched her purse. Police said it contained painkillers and sedatives. She was arrested on drug charges. Pain clinic boss pleads guilty to second-degree murderWEST PALM BEACH A South Florida man accused of illegally selling drugs through his pain clinic has pleaded guilty in the death of a patient. Federal prosecutors said Jeff George pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree murder. Authorities said 24-year-old Joseph Bartolucci was found dead in 2009 with half-filled prescriptions for Xanax and Dilaudid prescribed by a doctor at Georges East Coast Pain Clinic. According to the Palm Beach Post a federal indictment unsealed last week charged Jeff George, his twin brother Chris George and 30 others with running a criminal enterprise that brought in more than $40 million through prescription drug dealing, boiler-room telemarketing operations and an Internet steroids business. In exchange for his plea, George will face no more than 20 years in prison. Nine injured in chain-reaction school-bus crash LARGO Authorities say nine people were injured when a Tampa Bay area school bus and several other vehicles collided. Largo Fire Rescue said the bus and four other vehicles were involved in a chain-reaction crash Monday morning. No children were on the bus at the time of the collision. The St. Petersburg Times reported two people were transported to the hospital. Their conditions werent immediately known. Seven others were treated at the scene. From wire reports The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE A proposal to tax bottled water was filed Monday in the Florida Senate, re-igniting a water war that has pitted Sen. Evelyn Lynn against bottlers and business groups. Lynns bill (SB 118) is identical to a bill filed last year by Lynn that failed to get a committee hearing. Given $700 million in budget cuts to water management districts and other cuts to statewide water quality programs, Lynn, R-Ormond Beach, said providing a source of money to pay for mitigating the environmental damage caused by discarded bottles may find more sympathy. This would be an effective way to set aside money for environmental cleanup, Lynn told the News Service of Florida on Monday. But opposition is expected to be fierce as Lynn battles bottlers like Nestle North American Waters and business groups who rely upon bottled water sales for a growing part of their businesses. She will also face an uphill fight against leaders in her own chamber, who have taken an ardent anti-tax stance. Floridas bottled water industry generates millions of dollars in revenue for local communities, and any efforts to penalize Floridas bottled water consumers will ultimately drive business to neighboring states where it is not taxed, said Ryan Duffy, a Nestle spokesman. The industry supports 8,800 jobs in Florida while utilizing less than one-tenth of 1 percent of all water usage in the state. The bill would levy a 6 percent surcharge on the sale of bottled water in containers under a 1-gallon size. The money would be deposited in the Ecosystem Management and Restoration Trust Fund. Americans use 2.5 million plastic bottles an hour, making the bottled water industry a $7.7 billion market in the United States alone, according to some industry estimates. If recycled, bottles save energy, but uncollected containers have become increasingly targeted by recycling groups and have been banned in some municipalities. Past efforts to bring a surcharge to the state have been opposed by bottling companies, convenience stores and national groups representing vendors, including the National Automatic Merchandising Association and its state affiliate. Most vending machine companies are small businesses, said Bill Baker, a Clearwater vending company owner and president of the Automated Merchandising Association of Florida. A tax would be bad for those mom-and-pops. It will also raise the price to customers.

Associated PressMIAMI Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann says her visit to the Bay of Pigs museum in Miamis Little Havana serves as a reminder of the global struggle for freedom. Bachmann wrapped up four days in Florida on Monday with stops in the heavily Cuban-American neighborhood. The Minnesota congresswoman said the U.S. must still fight for the goals of liberating Cuba from communism envisioned in the failed 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion. Bachmann said the museum is a reminder of the need for economic freedom. She said private businesses should be unshackled from government to create more jobs. Bachmann also said more government economic officials should come from the private sector.

Consumer spending rebounds, rose 0.8 percent in JulyWASHINGTON Consumer spending grew in July by 0.8 percent, the largest amount in five months. That followed a decline in June and helped ease fears that the U.S. economy is on the verge of another recession. Americans bought more cars and spent more last month to cool their homes during a long heat wave. Personal incomes increased 0.3 percent last month, the Commerce Department said. Thats slightly higher than the modest 0.2 percent in June, the weakest growth in seven months. Economists said the spending report was a strong sign that the economy rebounded in July after growing at an annual rate of just 0.7 percent in the first half of the year the slowest pace since the recession officially ended two years ago.Contracts to buy homes fall 1.3 percent in JulyWASHINGTON The number of people who signed contracts to buy homes fell in July, further evidence that the depressed housing market remains a drag on the economy. The National Association of Realtors said Monday that its index of sales agreements fell 1.3 percent in July to a reading of 89.7. A reading of 100 is considered healthy by economists. The last time the index reached that level was in April 2010, the final month that buyers could qualify for a federal tax credit. Contract signings are usually a reliable indicator of where the housing market is headed. Theres typically a oneto two-month lag between a sales contract and a completed deal. Bank of America sells half of its China bank stake NEW YORK Bank of America Corp. is selling half of its stake in China Construction Bank Corp. to raise cash and shore up its capital base. The nations largest bank by assets said Monday it will sell 13.1 billion shares in the Chinese bank for $8.3 billion to a group of investors it declined to name. The sale, which had been expected, will generate a gain of $3.3 billion for Bank of America. The news came four days after the bank, based in Charlotte, N.C., got a $5 billion investment from Warren Buffetts Berkshire Hathaway Inc., which provided a big boost to Bank of Americas battered stock. The billionaire investor has made investments in other major companies such as Goldman Sachs Group Inc., helping restore confidence in them when they were out of favor.From wire reports Rates unchanged at T-bill auction Insurance companies drive stocks higher;Dow gains 254 Associated PressNEW YORK So much for Irene. Stocks rose broadly Monday, led by insurance companies, after it became clear the tropical storm caused far less damage than many had feared. An increase in U.S. consumer spending also helped, as did as did a rare piece of good news from Greece: a merger of two major banks. The Dow Jones industrial average jumped 254 points. Trading volume, or the number of shares bought and sold, was the lowest since July 26 as many traders struggled to get to work in Lower Manhattan. Insurance stocks rose sharply as analysts lowered estimates of how much damage the storm would cause. Allstate Corp. rose 8.5 percent, Hartford Financial Services Group Inc. rose 13 percent, and Travelers Cos. Inc. rose 5.1 percent. Insurance and banking stocks in the Standard & Poors 500 rose 4.2 percent, the most of the 10 company groups that make up the index. Kinetic Analysis Corp., a consulting firm, sharply lowered its estimate of storm damage from $20 billion late Thursday to $7 billion late Sunday as the storm weakened. Of that amount, insurers would probably have to cover up to $3 billion, Kinetic said. Thats less than the $6 billion the industry paid after Hurricane Isabel struck the region in 2003. The U.S. came more or less unscathed through the hurricane, said Kim Caughey Forrest, equity research analyst at Fort Pitt Capital Group. The cleanup isnt going to cost as much as anticipated. Utilities companies also rose after it became clear their storm-related expenses would be lower than earlier estimates. Duke Energy Corp., which serves customers in the Carolinas, rose 1.1 percent. New Yorks biggest utility company, Consolidated Edison Inc., rose 1.3 percent.

The Treasury Department auctioned $29 billion in threemonth bills at a discount rate of 0.015 percent, the same as last week. Another $27 billion in six-month bills was auctioned at a discount rate of 0.045 percent, also unchanged from last week. The 0.015 percent for threemonth bills was the lowest since these bills averaged 0.005 percent on Dec. 8, 2008, during the financial crisis. Rates on Treasury securities have remained at low levels in recent weeks even after credit rating agency Standard & Poors lowered its rating on long-term Treasurydebt to AA+ on Aug. 5. The discount rates reflect that the bills sell for less than face value. For a $10,000 bill, the three-month price was $9,999.62 while a six-month bill sold for $9,997.73. That would equal an annualized rate of 0.015 percent for the three-month bills and 0.046 percent for the six-month bills. Separately, the Federal Reserve said Monday the average yield for one-year Treasury bills fell to 0.10 percent last week from 0.11 percent the previous week.

Buy an umbrellaThat one letter to the editor in there about somebody complaining about Crystal River students dont have a covered walkway to stand under in weather I thought that was a joke at first. But then when I read it again, I think the person was serious. I wonder if that family ever heard of umbrellas or rain gear. Thats what I had when I went to school. Or is it so difficult that these poor, little kids cant get wet or have to walk anywhere, that theyve got to be pampered. The easiest way to do it is rather than complain to the schools, buy them a nice umbrella. They have nice golf umbrellas and they have nice raingear. Then theyll be pretty well protected. I dont think thats a problem. I dont think we have to spend thousands to rebuild a school sidewalk covering just to avoid somebody having to go out and purchase a $9 umbrella.A solution Im calling regarding the letter about Students too exposed, in todays paper (Aug. 23). Has this parent never heard of an umbrella?Its just water This is in response to R. Ivory of Crystal River. I can agree with you that the dry walkway between classes is necessary, but for parent pick-up? Thats crazy. Are you so afraid to get a little water on you? Come on. Theres no reason for that. How are you going to build immunity in your body if youre afraid to get wet? Here, chickenI agree with the other person about needing a Popeyes in Citrus County. Please, Popeyes, come on and build one here. I love your chicken.Now what? Chronicle please print some directive or some instructions what we on Lake Rousseau (who are) supposed to have arsenic in our water, what are we to do? We need our wells, some of us need our wells tested. Where is our county commissioner? On the east side of Lake Rousseau out here, the paper said we have arsenic in our drinking water. We need some directive as to what, where to turn to, who to turn to. O PINION Page A10 TUESDAY, AUGUST 30, 2011 Congress downgradeWell, its official; the credit rating of the United States of America has now been downgraded by Standard & Poors to AA+. Keep in mind, this downgrade has been declared by a rating agency that rated subprime mortgage-backed securities AAA, which brought about the meltdown of Wall Street in 2008. This downgrade did not happen because we finally raised the debt limit and allowed the U.S. Treasury to pay our bills. It was done because our dysfunctional legislative branch put together a smoke and mirrors agreement to raise the debt ceiling. This piece of legislation was designed to allow all of the Congress to avoid responsibility for its passage. It was business as usual in Washington, with Republicans and Democrats ignoring the economic impact of their political maneuvers. What is the impact on the U.S. economy going to be because of this downgrade? Will this downgrade be the straw that broke the camels back, sending the U.S. economy further into a second wave of recession? The state of the economy, unemployment rate, international debt crises and inability of the Congress to respond, when needed, leaves us wide open for the worst possible outcome. Will the senators and representatives that are responsible for this (and they all are) stand up and take responsibility, or even acknowledge their role in this fiasco? Dont hold your breath. Not only has S&P downgraded our credit rating, they also forecast future credit ratings will be negative. This means simply, we have a better chance of further downgrades than upgrades. With our current elected officials, I would have trouble arguing with them. Robert M. Sprott Crystal RiverPoor headline Has the Chronicle been purchased by Rupert Murdoch? The headlines in a recent Sunday edition appear to have been written by a Fleet Street hack. Above the banner on the front page, the headline screams Death sentence: Miami fans wonder how his happened. The front page of the sports section shows a skull and crossbones with the headline Death Sentence: At Miami, theres 1 big question: How? Within the entire article, there is no mention of the death penalty. There is no quote from anyone representing the NCAA investigation. Those players and coaches quoted never refer to the death penalty. They refer again and again to allegations from a convicted felon. Please Chronicle staff and editors, do not sensationalize an unproven and possibly unfounded allegation. Report the facts; they are tragic enough. Joe and Lynn Hunt Homosassa I n my high school days, before sex and environmental education and the general dumbing down of the population, memorization of some Shakespeare was expected in Miss Kauffmans 12thgrade English class. A favorite I still recall is this line spoken by Brutus in Julius Caesar: There is a tide in the affairs of men, which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries... Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) repeatedly says in various ways it is too soon, or he isnt ready, for higher office, such as vice president. Hes been in the Senate for a little more than seven months and has delivered only two major speeches his maiden speech on the Senate floor and one last week at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif. In the Reagan Library speech, Rubio laid out his philosophical foundation, something that must be at the heart of any policy. Defining the proper role of government ought to be the central issue in the coming presidential campaign. Indeed, it should occupy our thoughts between campaigns because those of us who pay income tax are not getting a good return on our investment. Heres Rubio: We have the opportunity within our lifetimes to actually craft a proper role for government in our nation that will allow us to come closer than any Americans have ever come to our collective vision of a nation where both prosperity and compassion exist side by side. That takes the compassionate conservatism of George W. Bush to a different level. To Rubio, prosperity is not the opposite of compassion. Rather, the two are or should be joined. Prosperity provides the means by which people can be compassionate to those truly in need, such as the disabled and elderly. It is also the ticket out of dependency for people who can work but have been robbed of their dignity by addiction to a government check. Dignity leads to many other character qualities, which advance the true welfare of an individual, benefiting society. Someone with dignity, self-regard and respect for others is unlikely to take part in a flash mob attack. Rubio points to a path beyond the familiar either-or debate; beyond envy of the wealthy and multiple and ineffective programs to liberate the poor. This repetitive scenario has produced, said Rubio, a government that not even the richest and most prosperous nation on the face of the Earth can fund or afford to pay for. An extraordinary tragic accomplishment, if you can call it that. Rubio went further than what might be expected of a Republican, acknowledging his party is partly responsible for the growth of government: I know that it is popular in my party to blame the president, the current president. But the truth is the only thing this president has done is accelerate policies that were already in place and were doomed to fail. All he is doing through his policies is making the day of reckoning come faster, but it was coming nonetheless. And then there is this, which shatters the lefts stereotype about the right: Conservatism is not about leaving people behind. Conservatism is about empowering people to catch up, to give them the tools ... that make it possible for them to access all the hope, all the promise, all the opportunity that America offers. And our programs to help them should reflect that. If this is not a speech that lays the foundation for a Rubio run for higher office, it is a speech that ought to begin a major transition from costly and ineffective government programs to a renewed empowerment of individuals. No one, perhaps not even Rubio, can know for certain whether he is ready for higher office. President Obama has proven he wasnt ready. Some leaders dont know they can lead until leadership is thrust upon them. The right philosophy is key and the Reagan Library speech proves that Rubio has the most important ingredient of any leader: vision.

Work on planning the extension which would run from the current northern end of the parkway at U.S. 98 in southern Citrus to U.S. 19 just south of the Levy County line was suspended two years ago when funds for completing the design and property acquisition were removed from the five-year work plan for the turnpike authority. While suspension of the project was cheered by some critics, many public officials and business leaders felt the decision to not proceed was a mistake, a mistake TPO officials are hoping they can rectify by convincing the state to restart the project. Earlier this summer, Property Appraiser Geoff Greene sent a letter to Gov. Rick Scott urging him to support the parkway extension as a needed transportation infrastructure improvement and economic development project. Both Greene and TPO officials cite economic growth and improving traffic flow as reasons to restart the parkway extension project. With plans for a new nuclear plant and the opening of a new limestone aggregate mine now planned in Levy County, traffic particularly truck traffic is expected to grow over the next several years. Much of this traffic heading south will use the already-congested U.S. 19. The parkway extension would relieve some of that congestion. In the short term, the parkway extension would create local jobs. Long term, it would help with economic development in the county, since one of the limits on economic growth is the availability of transportation for both goods and people. We recognize that there is opposition to the parkway based on concerns about the impact of the project on the environment and about its potential contribution to urban sprawl. These are issues that should be addressed in the steps taken to mitigate environmental impact during and after construction and by assuring that county land use planning takes into account the impact of the parkway. They should not further delay or kill the project. At a time when the county and its residents are struggling economically, a major infrastructure project would be a welcome economic boost, and completing the extension would position the county for long-term economic growth. We applaud our local officials for trying to get the project moving, and we encourage state officials to fund the project. THE ISSUE: County Transportation Planning Organization wants to restart parkway extension.OUR OPINION: Building the extension is a plus for Citrus County.

Four people were arrested and at least 10 people hospitalized after a weekend party near Colorado State University that was advertised on Facebook grew to thousands of people. The back-to-school party at a Fort Collins apartment complex began at 1 p.m. Saturday. Its Facebook page registered nearly 3,000 attendees. Fort Collins Police Lt. Dave Haywood said officers were dispatched at about 3 p.m. after fire and ambulance responders were overwhelmed with alcohol-overdose cases. Police said two people were cited with assault, one was cited with disorderly conduct, and a fourth person was cited with interference with a peace officer. Haywood said the assault charges were related to a fight, though he doesnt think anyone was seriously hurt. He said he doesn't have details on the people who were taken to hospitals, but he says some of the cases involved intoxication. Cheers!

HIV-tainted organs transplanted TAIPEI, Taiwan One of Taiwans best regarded hospitals said it transplanted organs from an HIV carrier into five patients in what appears to be one of the most serious examples of medical negligence in the islands modern history. A National Taiwan University Hospital official in Taipei said Monday that the five are now being treated with antiAIDS drugs. In a posting on its website over the weekend, the hospital said the mistake occurred because a transplant staffer believed that the English word reactive on the donors standard HIV test meant negative instead of positive. The hospital added that the information on the test result was given over the telephone and was not double-checked, as required by standard operating procedures. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A12 TUESDAY, AUGUST 30, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Space station may be evacuated late Nov. Associated PressCAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. Astronauts may need to take the unprecedented step of temporarily abandoning the International Space Station if last weeks Russian launch accident prevents new crews from flying there this fall. Until officials figure out what went wrong with Russias essential Soyuz rockets, there will be no way to launch any more astronauts before the current residents have to leave in mid-November. The unsettling predicament comes just weeks after NASAs final space shuttle flight. We have plenty of options, NASAs space station program manager, Mike Suffredini, assured reporters Monday. Well focus on crew safety as we always do. Abandoning the space station, even for a short period, would be an unpleasant last resort for the worlds five space agencies that have spent decades working on the project. Astronauts have been living aboard the space station since 2000, and the goal is to keep it going until 2020. Suffredini said flight controllers could keep a deserted space station operating indefinitely, as long as all major systems are working properly. The risk to the station goes up, however, if no one is aboard to fix equipment breakdowns. Six astronauts from three countries presently are living on the orbiting complex. Three are due to leave next month; the other three are supposed to check out in mid-November. The Sept. 22 launch of the very next crew the first to fly in this post-shuttle era already has been delayed indefinitely. Russias Soyuz spacecraft have been the sole means of getting full-time station residents up and down for two years. To keep the orbiting outpost with a full staff of six for as long as possible, the one American and two Russians due to return to Earth on Sept. 8 will remain on board at least an extra week. As for supplies, the space station is well stocked and could go until next summer, Suffredini said. Atlantis dropped off a years supply of goods just last month on the final space shuttle voyage. The unmanned craft destroyed Wednesday was carrying 3 tons of supplies. For now, operations are normal in orbit, Suffredini noted, and the additional week on board for half the crew will mean additional science research. The Soyuz has been extremely reliable over the decades; this was the first failure in 44 Russian supply hauls for the space station. Even with such a good track record, many in and outside NASA were concerned about retiring the space shuttles before a replacement was ready to fly astronauts. Associated Press Astronauts may need to temporarily abandon the International Space Station this fall if last week's Russian launch accident prevents new crews from flying, a NASA official said Monday. Gadhafis wife, 3 children flee; one son thought killed in battle Associated PressTRIPOLI, Libya Moammar Gadhafis wife and three of his children fled Libya to neighboring Algeria on Monday, firm evidence that the longtime leader has lost his grip on the country. Gadhafis whereabouts were still unknown and rebels are worried that if he remains in Libya, it will stoke more violence. In Washington, the Obama administration said it has no indication Gadhafi has left the country. Rebels also said one of Gadhafis other sons, elite military commander Khamis, was probably killed in battle. The Algerian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that Gadhafis wife, Safia, his sons Hannibal and Mohammed, and his daughter Aisha entered the country across the land border. It said Algerian authorities have informed the United Nations Secretary General, the president of the U.N. Security Council, and the head of the Libyan rebels transitional leadership council. Ahmed Jibril, an aide to rebel National Transitional Council head Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, said officials would demand that Algerian authorities hand them over to Libya to be tried before Libyan courts. Gadhafis children played important roles in Libyas military and economic life. Hannibal headed the maritime transport company, Mohammed the national Olympic committee. Aisha, a lawyer, helped in the defense of toppled Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in the trial that led to his hanging. Ahmed Bani, military spokesman of the council, said he was not surprised to hear Algeria had welcomed Gadhafis relatives. Throughout the sixmonth Libyan uprising, rebels have accused Algeria of providing Gadhafi with mercenaries to repress the revolt. Over the weekend, the Egyptian news agency MENA, quoting unidentified rebel fighters, had reported that six armored Mercedes sedans, possibly carrying Gadhafis sons or other top regime figures, had crossed the border at the southwestern Libyan town of Ghadamis into Algeria. Algerias Foreign Ministry had denied that report. Rebel military spokesman Ahmed Bani said Monday that rebel forces may have killed Khamis Gadhafi in a clash Saturday. Rebel clashed with a military convoy in the town of Tarhouna, 50 miles southeast of Tripoli, destroying two vehicles in the convoy. The bodies in the cars were burned beyond recognition, he said, but captured soldiers said they were Khamis Gadhafis bodyguards. We are sure he is dead, Col. Boujela Issawi, the rebel command of Tarhouna, told AP But then he cast some doubt, saying it was possible Gadhafis son was pulled alive from the car and taken to Bani Walid, a contested interior area. Col. Abdullah Hussein, a former pilot in the Libyan airforce who is part of the rebels command center in Tarhouna, said that we heard from Bani Walid that he (Khamis) died in the hospital there. Asked how they knew this, since Bani Walid is still under regime control, he said: We have some people there. Rebel leaders have started to set up a new government in the capital Tripoli after their fighters drove Gadhafis defenders out over the past week. Gadhafis whereabouts are still unknown, however, and people close to him have claimed he is still in the country and leading a fight to hold onto power. Associated Press People demonstrate against Moammar Gadhafi late Monday at the Green Square in Tripoli, Libya. Associated Press Libyan leader Moammar Gadfhafis youngest son Khamis, left, seen in 2008 with Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, is thought to have been killed in battle. U.S.-Taliban talks were making headway Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan Direct U.S. talks with the Taliban had evolved to a substantive negotiation before Afghan officials, nervous that the secret and independent talks would undercut President Hamid Karzai, scuttled them, Afghan and U.S. officials told The Associated Press. Featured prominently in the talks was the whereabouts and eventual release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl of Hailey, Idaho, who was captured more than two years ago in eastern Afghanistan, according to a senior Western diplomat in the region and a childhood friend of the Taliban negotiator, Tayyab Aga. The U.S. negotiators asked Aga what could be done to gain Bergdahls release. The discussion did not get into specifics but Aga discussed the release of Afghan prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and in Afghanistan at Bagram Air Field. Published reports about the clandestine meetings ended the talks abruptly, and sent Aga into hiding. Collapse of the direct talks between Aga and U.S. officials probably spoiled the best chance yet at reaching Mullah Mohammed Omar, considered the linchpin to ending the Taliban fight against the U.S.-backed government in Afghanistan. The contacts were preliminary but had begun to bear fruit, Afghan and U.S. officials said. Perhaps most importantly they offered the tantalizing prospect of a brokered agreement between the U.S. and the Taliban one that would allow the larger reconciliation of the Taliban into Afghanistan political life to move forward. The United States has not committed to any such deal, but the Taliban wants security assurances from Washington. In a series of interviews with diplomats, current and former Taliban, Afghan government officials and a close childhood friend of Aga, the AP learned Aga is hiding in Europe, and is afraid to return to Pakistan fearing reprisals. The United States has had no direct contact with him for months. A senior U.S. official acknowledged that the talks imploded because of the leak and that Aga, while alive, had disappeared. The U.S. will continue to pursue talks, the official said. Current and former U.S. officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the talks. The U.S. acknowledged the meetings after Karzai, who apparently fears being sidelined by U.S.-Taliban talks, confirmed published accounts about them in June, but has never publicly detailed the content, format or participants. Grizzly kills man in YellowstoneBILLINGS, Mont. Yellowstone National Park officials say a grizzly bear killed a 59-year-old Michigan man whose body was found by hikers last week.

Citrus High School has been working in the preseason to replace setter Kayla Gromling, while Seven Rivers and Crystal River are getting familiar with a new offense and Lecanto works on being a more cohesive team. Citrus began practice Aug. 12, immediately setting out to replace and rework the setter position with newcomer Kelly Abramowich. Weve worked on our defense and shifted some positions around and made it where were trying to close holes, head coach Cindy Lewis said. Our passing has improved tremendously, our hitting has improved and were working on our setter position. 2010 was a rebuilding year for the Hurricanes, and with a record of 0 and 25, to say it was a disappointment would be an understatement. (Last year), we were not as successful as we would like to be, assistant coach Mark Cassidy said. But a lot of our girls played club ball over the summer, which helped maintain that midseason form earlier on. So, we have high expectations for this season. Lecantos team of eight returning juniors and two seniors, who had an overall record of 13-13 in 2010, has spent the preseason learning positions inside and out. Head coach Emily Merritt has been impressed with girls drive in early practices and preseason games. (Players) want to work hard and push themselves, Merritt said. They are a team that refuses to give up and will fight to the very end. Each player is determined to understand every aspect of their position and fine tune it to the best of their ability. Seven Rivers head coach Brian Wood had the Warriors doing twoa-days for the last week before the Preseason Classic, which he said really got the team prepared for the season. That really got us going. Boy, did it get us going, he said. The biggest challenge Seven Rivers faces is learning a new style of offense, a sometimes difficult concept to grasp in the month or so between tryouts and game day. Last year, we ran a standard 62 offense, Wood said. This year, we are running a three-middle offense, (which is) complicated and very hard for an opponent to scout. You can make adjustments on the fly to create a positive hitting or blocking match up for your team. A TTHEN ET Volleyball teams face unique challenges as new season starts Bautista hits 38th homer Associated PressTORONTO Jose Bautista hit his 38th home run, Ricky Romero won his sixth straight decision and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-3 to avoid a four-game sweep. Adam Lind added a tworun homer as Toronto snapped a season-high fourgame losing streak and overcame a two-homer night from Rays designated hitter Johnny Damon. Bautista tied Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson for the major league lead in homers with a solo drive in the sixth that hit off the facing of the third deck in left. Romero (13-9) allowed three runs and six hits in six innings. The left-hander, who walked four and struck out two, has not lost since July 16 against New York. The Blue Jays have won each of his eight starts since, and Romero is 6-0 with a 2.11 ERA in that span. Damon followed Desmond Jennings game-opening walk with a homer in the first, then added a leadoff shot in the fifth, his first multihomer game of the season and the 13th of his career. Lind came in 3 for 21 and grounded into an inning-ending double play in the first before turning his luck around with a two-run homer to right in the third. The drive, his 23rd of the season and first since Aug. 17, came after Bautista drove in a run with a groundout.

ROBERT CRAWFORD /Special to the Chronicle Cody Stickler (No. 99)prepares for a restart with Mike Bresnahan (No. 69) behind him. Stickler would take the victory and move into a tie for the championship points lead. J OHN C HANCE For the ChronicleFans were greeted by hot and humid weather Saturday night, but were treated to a full pit area, with more than 105 cars registering to race. With the threat of Hurricane Irene earlier in the week, many racetracks canceled their programs before the close of business Monday. That left only the Citrus County Speedway and another asphalt track racing Saturday night. Fifteen Sportsman took the green for the 25-lap feature, with Cody Stickler (No. 99) and Tom Posavec (No. 01) bringing the field to the start. Stickler jumped out to the early lead while other toppoint contenders were buried deep in the field. Points leader Ernie Reed made his way to second position from his fourthstarting position early on, but was pressured by Sportsman newcomer Mike Bresnahan (No. 69). Brett Jenkins (No. 199) spun out in Lap 7, creating a caution and closing the field back up on the restart. Stickler led the restart with Reed second, Bresnahan third and frontrunner Aaron Williamson (13) in fourth. Williamson and Bresnahan battled side by side for several laps, trading paint, before Williamson took over the third spot. A caution for a spin in turn one on lap 10 erased Sticklers lead. But he pulled away once again, leaving the others to battle. Reed was pressured by Williamson. On lap 12, the battle ended, with both cars spinning after Williamson attempted an inside pass on Reed. Several drivers were unable to avoid the spinning cars of Williamson and Reed. Top-points contender Brandon Morris (No. 56) and Chad Pierce (No. 157) suffered heavy damage, but continued. Stickler advanced again, proving he was the man to beat over the final eight laps of the race. Coming home second was Bresnahan in his first Sportsman race with his new ride. Richie Smith (No. 4) charged from his fourth-place starting position to take third away from Morris in the closing laps. Bresnahan and Pierce were heat race winners. Taylor Made Homes Pure StocksFourteen Pure Stocks racers rumbled to the green for their 20-lap feature with Richie Acres (No. 129) and Mike Dubbs (No. 36) occupying the front row. Acres jumped out to a quick lead, but fourthplace starter Mike Martin (76) soon rocketed to the front of the field. Point leader David Walls (No. 35) followed Martin to the front on the outside. He moved into the second position and set his sights on the leader. Lap 4 saw the first and only caution for a spin involving Dustin Dinkins (No. 96) and Acres. Dinkins suffered a flat tire in the spin and headed to the pits to change his flat. Martin again rocketed away on the restart, putting several car lengths on Walls in a few laps. Just past the halfway mark, Walls car lost power, sending him to the pits, not to return. Martin then enjoyed a lead of more than a half a lap on the new secondplace car of Carl Peters (No. 39). Martin then took the most dominant victory of the night, with Peters a distant second. Sherry Makula moved from her ninth-starting position to third at the checkers. Happy Florian (65) and Walls were heat race winners Street StocksA large field of 17 Street Stocks registered for the 20-lap feature with Tim Wilson (No. 85) on the pole. Tim Wilson jumped to an early lead, but Mike Wilson (79) moved to the front from his sixth-place position. Mike Wilson moved around the outside of Bubba Martone (No. 98) and Kenny May (No. 10), challenging for the lead. Mike Wilson took the lead away from Tim Wilson (no relation) on lap 10 and never looked back. Tim Wilson finished second while the battle for third raged behind him. Martone, points leader Curtis Flanagan (No. 3), Kyle Peters (No. 53) and Kenny May (No. 10) raced side by side two rows deep to the finish line for third. Martone came out on top, taking the third position at the stripe. Martone and Mike Wilson were heat race winners. Mini Stocks Twelve Sheldon Palmes Insurance Mini Stocks tried to take the checkers Saturday night with Shawn Jenkins (No. 43) and Lenard Fussell (No. 88) on the front row. Jenkins sped into an early lead, but it was short lived. Third starter Jeremy Sharrone took his brand-new racer to the point before lap 3. Fifth-place starter Aaron Williamson (No. 84) took his sister Ashlees car to the second spot behind Sharrone. Williamson put his experience to use, taking the lead away from Sharrone on lap 5. The field saw its only caution on lap 14, tightening the field back up for the restart. Williamson and Sharrone battled over the final six laps with Williamson taking the victory followed by Sharrone in second, and Jenkins in third. The top three points positions changed again this week in the tightly contested championship. Sharrone moved from third to first in the points standings, with a onepoint lead over Sonya Heater (No. 71), and a three-point lead over last weeks top dog Kevin Stone (No. 98). Williamson and Heater were heat race winners.

The actual average speed of the winner of the race was 96.753 mph. Nick and Beverly Slonakers tiebreaking speed was the closest at 97.421, so the Slonakers earn a $25 gas card for the correct pick. Race to the finish storms moved in from the northwest, blanketing the speedway with rain, wind and lightning. The rain shower lasted only 30 minutes, but dumped too much water on the speedway to resume racing. With only a handful of laps completed, the modifieds will run Twin 30s on Sept. 10 to make up for the lost race. Heat race winners were Robbie Cooper (98) and Ricky Coffin (3). This week the speedway will see the return of the Daytona Antique Auto Racing Association, a 50-lap Sheldon Palmes Insurance Mini Stock race, Street Stocks, Modified Mini Stocks, Hornets and the Pro Challenge Series. Gates open at 4 p.m. and racing starts at 6 p.m. Visit the track website at www.citruscounty speedway.com or call the speedway office at (352) 726-9339 for complete details. BEFORE HURRICANE IRENES STORM SYSTEM STRIKES Stickler, Martin dominate races at Citrus County Speedway ROBERT WING/ Special to the Chronicle A full field of 20 Open Wheel Modifieds take the green for the 40-lap feature. Bobby Ervien (No. 88) is the points leader.
Mets 2, Marlins 1, 1st game Mets 5, Marlins 1, 2nd game NEW YORK Dillon Gee rebounded from a wretched start and the New York Mets, back on the field following a two-day break because of Hurricane Irene, finished off a doubleheader sweep of the Florida Marlins with a 5-1 victory Monday night. R.A. Dickey shut down the sluggish Marlins in the opener, pitching seven spotless innings in a 2-1 victory for his first win in more than a month. Mets starters had tossed 21 consecutive scoreless innings before Gee (125) gave up a home run to Greg Dobbs in the sixth. All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes scored a run and committed an error in his return from the disabled list. A boy in the stands got hurt in the ninth inning of the opener when Dobbs hit a line drive into the right-field seats, just beyond the New York dugout. Stadium medical workers immediately tended to the boy, who appeared to be hit in the face and was bleeding heavily. Accompanied by his mother, he was carted away in a wheelchair after the game and taken under the stands to an ambulance. Following the final out, Mets second baseman Justin Turner went to wait for the boy by the railing. Turner took off his jersey and handed it over as a souvenir. Dobbs gave the boy a bat, and New York manager Terry Collins also stopped by the scene. In the nightcap, Ruben Tejada tripled off Ricky Nolasco (9-10) to set up the first run and scored twice. David Wright drove in two and the Mets got two-out RBI singles from Angel Pagan and Willie Harris in the sixth. New York has won four straight following a 2-11 skid. Gee went six innings, allowing six hits while striking out six and walking two. It was quite a turnaround from his previous outing, when the normally poised rookie gave up a career-high eight runs, seven hits and six walks in 3 2/3 innings of a 10-0 rout at Philadelphia. Manny Acosta struck out all three batters in the eighth just as Jason Isringhausen did in the first game. Bobby Parnell, who earned his second save in the opener, finished up. The Mets were swept in their two previous doubleheaders this season, by Colorado and Atlanta in April. Turner had a run-scoring single in the opener and Josh Thole hustled his way to an RBI. Parnell gave up a homer to New York nemesis Gaby Sanchez in the ninth. Both teams were playing for the first time since Friday because of Hurricane Irene, which battered the East Coast over the weekend. The Marlins rode out the storm in Philadelphia, then bused up to New York on Sunday night.C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, A UGUST 30, 2011 B3 On the AIRWAVES MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL 7 p.m. (MLB) N.Y.

Yankees 3, Orioles 2BALTIMORE Freddy Garcia returned from the disabled list to pitch six innings of two-hit ball, Nick Swisher homered and the New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 3-2 earn a split of the four-game series. It was New Yorks second straight win without third baseman Alex Rodriguez and shortstop Derek Jeter. Rodriguez will join the team in Boston on Tuesday after getting an MRI on his sore left thumb in New York, and Jeter rested a bruised right knee but was available in case of an emergency, manager Joe Girardi said. Mark Teixeira doubled in a run for the Yankees, who moved within 1 1/2 games of the first-place Red Sox in the AL East. Mark Reynolds and J.J. Hardy homered for Baltimore, which was seeking to win a four-game series against New York for the first time since 1997. After being sidelined for three weeks with a cut right index finger, Garcia (11-7) picked up where he left off. He allowed one run, walked one and struck out four to win his fourth straight decision. The right-hander is 40 with a 1.72 ERA in his last five starts. Baltimores only hits against Garcia were a first-inning double by Adam Jones and Reynolds drive in the fifth. The homer was the first against Garcia in 11 starts since June 7. The Orioles closed to 3-2 when Hardy connected on an 0-2 pitch from David Robertson in the eighth. It was his 26th home run, matching a career high set with Milwaukee in 2007.

Its the sort of track record the 102ndranked Watson hopes to have one day; Mondays match was only her fifth at a major tournament. Sharapova won six Grand Slam matches at Wimbledon alone this summer, reaching the final there before losing to Petra Kvitova. Fresh off that triumph, Kvitova a 21-year-old from the Czech Republic seeded No. 5 in Flushing Meadows failed to follow it up, flopping at the U.S. Open with a 7-6 (3), 6-3 loss to 48th-ranked Alexandra Dulgheru of Romania. Kvitova is the first reigning Wimbledon womens champion to lose her first match at the U.S. Open in the same season. Only three times had the Wimbledon winner bowed out as early as the third round in New York: Sharapova in 2004, Conchita Martinez in 1994, and Billie Jean King in 1973. This is something new for me, Kvitova said about her new status as Grand Slam champion. Ive felt a little pressure. She was the only seeded woman to exit in the afternoon session on Day 1 of the years last major tournament. At night, 2000-01 U.S. Open champion Venus Williams defeated 91stranked Vesna Dolonts of Russia. Seven Rivers Christian School Head coach: Brian Wood, second year. 2010 Record: 8-13. Key returners: Alexis Zachar, Andrea Zachar, Daniette St. Martin, Kayleigh Kiernan, Allison Green. Key losses: Alex Iwaniec, Nichole Zettle, Meghan Martin. Key newcomers: Alyssa Gage, Kaitlen Fenton. Strengths: Wood said the Warriors blocking is sound this year, and the team has a more positive attitude in terms of not giving up when theyre down against their opponent. Weaknesses: Learning a new offense is challenging for any team, but Wood said hes looking forward to seeing the Warriors fully grasp the three-middle offense and thrive. And although they didnt show it at last weeks Preseason Classic, serving is definitely something the Warriors are working to perfect. Citrus High School Head coach: Cindy Lewis, second year. 2010 record: 0-25. Key returners: Mary Wheeler, outside hitter; Paige Garvin, middle hitter; Lindsay Connors, libero; Lena Martone, middle hitter. Key losses: Kayla Gromling, setter; Hannah Shaffer, outside hitter; and Stephanie Dodd, defensive specialist. Key newcomers: Kelly Abramowich, setter; Amy Abramowich, outside hitter; Jessica Liptrap, outside hitter. Strengths: Lewis said the Canes have improved their hitting immensely since last years disappointing season, but the main strength is in their passing. Weaknesses: The Hurricanes are dealing with the loss of their setter, but Lewis and assistant coach Mark Cassidy agree the Canes biggest weakness lies in team chemistry. Communication working together as a team, Id say thats a weakness, Cassidy said. But were seriously about to turn a corner.Lecanto High School Head coach: Emily Merritt, 2nd year. 2010 record: 13-13. Key returners: Amber Atkinson, outside hitter; Andrea Coutu, libero; AnnaMaria DiLascio, middle; Lily Parrish, setter. Key losses : Rachel Roth; setter, Kaylyn Paveglio, middle; Delia Burgess, middle; and Flor Leiva, defensive specialist. Key newcomers: Courtney Rymer, setter; Savannah Weller, libero; and Elise Wideman, setter. Team strengths : This year, the team is continuing to work together and is always willing to push each other on, Merritt said. Crystal River High School Head coach: Mike Ridley, third year. 2010 record: 15-10. Key returners: Meagan Unverdorben, middle hitter; Ashley Allen, middle hitter; Morgan Rea, setter; and Sabrina Scott, setter; and Emily Laga, libero. Key losses : Kristen Norfleet, hitter and Kristin Tringali, back row. Key newcomers: Meghan Martin, Olivia Hudson and Laynee Nadal. Strengths: Ridley said the Pirates strengths lie in their blocking and back row defense. Weaknesses: JV players stepping into starting varsity positions, particularly in outside hitting, may be a weakness for this team, but having nine returners on the roster cant hurt. Compiled by Taylor Provost Conversely, the countys only third-year coach, Crystal Rivers Mike Ridley, has his team switching to a 6-2 offense, which will have his two strongest setters, senior Morgan Rea and junior Sabrina Scott, in twin setting positions rather than splitting in a 5-1 offense. Were always working on improving defense and preparing for every kind of attack, and that sort of thing, Ridley said. All of my returners have stepped up and are improving.

Book REVIEW MTV honors: Page B4 TUESDAY, AUGUST 30, 2011 E NTERTAINMENT Associated PressBeyonce and Jay-Zs offspring doesnt even have a name yet, but it was the indisputable breakout star of Sundays MTV Video Music Awards, upstaging everyone, even Katy Perrys win for video of the year. Perry, who had the most nominations coming into the show with 10, came away with three moonman trophies, including video of the year for the inspirational clip Firework. I feel like Im doing something right when I sing that song, said Perry, conservatively dressed in a cotton-candy pink jacket, a skirt and something best described as a Green Bay Packers cheesehead decoration. But the nights big news came from Beyonce, who stole the show before it even began when she announced on the black carpet that after more than three years of marriage, the dazzling couple had produced the ultimate all-star collaboration. Dressed in a loosefitting, off-the-shoulder red gown, she clutched the baby bump that so many celeb-watchers had been predicting since the two wed. Later, Beyonce performed Love on Top, and if Twitter hadnt already spread the news, her outfit gave clues to her impending motherhood; instead of her typical sexy outfits, she dressed in conservative spangled tux but still danced around in her signature stilettos. Beyonce didnt utter a word about the pregnancy, but ended the number by taking off her jacket and rubbing her swollen belly; in the audience, an elated Jay-Z hooted and clapped for his wife as Kanye West hugged him. In an instant, Beyonce and her soon-to-be child managed to overshadow the nights events. Lady Gagas much-hyped opening number, during which she performed as a greasy, leather-jacketed male alter-ego during a performance of You and I, became less interesting. So did the evenings meticulously planned wild moments, from Nicki Minajs origami-like outfit to a dance-off between the members of Odd Future and Jack Black, Will Ferrell and Seth Rogen. There was one apparently unscripted moment during Jay-Zs performance with Kanye West of Otis, off their chart-topping joint album Watch the Throne. Near the end of the song, someone tried to walk on the stage, but was quickly apprehended by a crew member as a bemused Jay-Z looked on. It was the second time Jay-Z had someone walk on unannounced during an MTV performance; two years ago, it was Lil Mama. Britney Spears captured the nights first award, for best pop video, and later was honored with an MTV Video Vanguard award for her visual legacy. Lady Gaga, sticking to her gender-switch shtick, leered at Spears as she paid tribute to her. Shes a pop music legend, and the industry would not be the same without her, Gaga said. I used to hang pictures of her on my wall and touch myself when I was in bed. Later, Gaga fished for a kiss, but as Spears leaned in, she quickly pulled back, reminding viewers, Ive done that before. The show at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles had no official host, though comedian Kevin Hart delivered an opening monologue and was featured in a series of vignettes during the show. Adele had perhaps the highlight of the night as the seven-time nominee delivered a powerfully understated performance of Someone Like You, off her top-selling album. Chris Brown also wowed with an aerial number, soaring above the crowd in between high-stepping choreography. Russell Brand provided the evenings rare poignant moment during a tribute to his late friend, Amy Winehouse, who died a month ago after struggling for years with drug and alcohol abuse. Brand urged people to remember the 27year-old for her music, and urged others suffering to get help. A lot of people just get the disease, not many people get the incredible talent that Amy was blessed with, said Brand, who successfully battled drug addiction himself. Lets remember there is a solution ... that solution is available. Tony Bennett, who joined Winehouse in what is believed to be her last song on his upcoming Duets II album, showed the audience a clip of the pair singing Body and Soul. Moments later, Bruno Mars sang one of her hits, Valerie, but closed the song out with the refrain, Amy, well miss you baby, as a somberfaced audience looked on. Todays Birthday: The course you set for yourself during the next year might not have obvious advantages, but you mustnt let that deflate your enthusiasm and deter you. As long as you know where youre headed, stay on course. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) In order to be properly and fairly compensated for your work, you may have to champion your own cause. Dont allow someone who has no idea of what you do to set your pay scale. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Those in your charge must be made to realize there are reasons for rules and order and that these must be obeyed. Make it clear that unless things are legit, everyone will suffer. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If you attempt to even up the score with someone who has wronged you, chances are you will incur even more complications. Instead of nursing a grudge, forgive and forget. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Many times we can unwittingly ignore the deserving while catering to someone who has wronged us. This could be the case for you currently, so take care not to do so. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) When there are bigger goals to be reached, wasting time and effort on something that will give you merely nominal gratification is wasteful. Define your desires and aim for the best. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If the persons with whom you associate find you difficult to please, they are apt to make a rapid exit. Be sure to state your case succinctly and fearlessly. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) When having to work with extremely limited resources, play everything close to the vest. If you dont, you could easily get into trouble trying to bluff your way through it all. Aries (March 21-April 19) Unless your allies aims are in harmony with yours, what you attempt to do together will fizzle. Everybody must be working off the same game plan in order to be effective. Taurus (April 20-May 20) In order to be a bit easier on yourself than usual, you should delegate some work responsibilities to your associates. Unless you do so, the chances of everything getting done are slim. Gemini (May 21-June 20) If you try to apply a bit of pressure on someone who is indebted to you, this person may disappear rather than comply. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Unless the dispersing of family funds is handled with consideration for all parties, it could become a sticky issue within the household for some time. Be fair about the division. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Co-workers are apt to emulate your behavior, so if you establish a poor example, nothing is likely to get done properly or even be finished. Be a motivator, not a malingerer. M ICHELLE W IENER For The Associated PressThe Stranger You Seek (Bantam Books), by Amanda Kyle Williams: At the start of Amanda Kyle Williams The Stranger You Seek, readers are in the head of a serial killer ready to strike. Its a short passage made all the more powerful by the information it conveys: The killer plans these crimes meticulously, and can gain access to just about anyone. By the time ex-FBI profiler Keye Street arrives at the crime scene, readers have learned two more things: The killer is extraordinarily sadistic and spends a good deal of time writing a knife play fetish blog, in which past and present crimes are recounted. And were off on a creepy, suspenseful, breathtaking ride as Street, now running a PI business and tracking bail jumpers on the side, assists the Atlanta police in finding the killer dubbed Wishbone by the media before the death toll rises. And its not long before the killer starts taunting and threatening Street herself. Street is a unique and worthy addition to the rich tradition of damaged and tough private detectives: Shes an adopted Chinese-American with typically Southern parents; is dealing with a failed marriage and an ex-husband who still has a hold on her; and is a recovering alcoholic the cause of her dismissal from the FBI. Williams dispatches each of the crime-scene descriptions with a flair for the graphic and grisly. The Stranger You Seek is not a book for the squeamish, and the fetish blog entries in particular may include triggers for survivors of sexual assaults. Theres a romantic subplot that doesnt quite have the right buildup for its ultimate payoff, and the mysterys solution might be a bit of a letdown for eagle-eyed readers, but these are slight criticisms for what is otherwise a fantastic mystery-thriller debut in what will assuredly be a successful series.

(However, Fremonts emancipation order was countermanded by President Abraham Lincoln). On this date: In 1862, Union forces were defeated by the Confederates at the Second Battle of Bull Run in Manassas, Va. In 1967, the Senate confirmed the appointment of Thurgood Marshall as the first black justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. In 1983, Guion S. Bluford Jr. became the first black American astronaut to travel in space as he blasted off aboard the Challenger. In 1997, Americans received word of the car crash in Paris that claimed the lives of Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed and their driver, Henri Paul. (Because of the time difference, it was Aug. 31 where the crash occurred.) Ten years ago: Nikolay Soltys was captured hiding under a desk in his mothers back yard in Citrus Heights, Calif., after a 10-day nationwide manhunt for the Ukrainian immigrant accused of butchering six relatives. (Soltys ended up committing suicide in his jail cell.) Five years ago: Hurricane John lashed tourist resorts with heavy winds and rain as the dangerous Category 4 storm marched up Mexicos Pacific coast.

Electronic privacy Associated Press In this June 30 photo, Aaron Titus, chief privacy officer and vice president of business development at Identity Finder, an Int ernet company that develops software to find and protect sensitive data, works at his office in New York. Electronic records can lower costs, cut bu reaucracy and ultimately save lives. But at a time of mounting computer hacking threats, the risk of data breaches are of major concern. New data spill shows risk of unprotected health records on the World Wide Web J ORDANR OBERTSON AP Technology WriterSAN FRANCISCO Until recently, medical files belonging to nearly 300,000 Californians sat unsecured on the Internet for the entire world to see. There were insurance forms, Social Security numbers and doctors notes. Among the files were summaries that spelled out, in painstaking detail, a truckers crushed fingers, a maintenance workers broken ribs and one mans bout with sexual dysfunction. At a time of mounting computer hacking threats, the incident offers an alarming glimpse at privacy risks as the nation moves steadily into an era in which every Americans sensitive medical information will be digitized. Electronic records can lower costs, cut bureaucracy and ultimately save lives. The government is offering bonuses to early adopters and threatening penalties and cuts in payments to medical providers who refuse to change. But there are not-so-hidden costs with modernization. When things go wrong, they can really go wrong, said Beth Givens, director of the nonprofit Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, which tracks data breaches. Even the most well-designed systems are not safe. ... This case is a good example of how the human element is the weakest link. Southern California Medical-Legal Consultants, which represents doctors and hospitals seeking payment from patients receiving workers compensation, put the records on a website that it believed only employees could use, owner Joel Hecht said. The personal data was discovered by Aaron Titus, a researcher with Identity Finder, who then alerted Hechts firm and The Associated Press. He found it through Internet searches, a common tactic for finding private information posted on unsecured sites. The data were available to anyone in the world with half a brain and access to Google, Titus said. Titus said Hechts company failed to use two basic techniques that could have protected the data requiring a password and instructing search engines not to index the pages. He called the breach likely a case of felony stupidity. One of the patients affected was Paul Thompson, who learned of the breach from Titus. The Sugarloaf, Calif., electrician blew out his shoulder four years ago on a job wiring up a multiplex movie theater. His insurance company denied his claim, which led to a protracted dispute. He eventually settled.

It also accelerates the skins aging process, or, in other words, it makes one look older sooner. Despite these side effects, its use has been steadily increasing. It is also known that many users use it quite frequently, three times a week or so. That made researchers wonder whether this is an addiction or not. Since 2007, the FDA has required warning labels See GANDHI / Page C4 P atients, rightly so, expect their medical health care system to be safe, and delivered in a timely fashion with good outcomes. This means being free of injury resulting from a medical error. If the patient is injured as a consequence of professional negligence or system failure, he or she may file a malpractice claim in order to be compensated. This is part of our judicial system. Like our medical system, we have other systems which generally serve us well, but occasionally malfunction: such as food services, law enforcement and transportation. As a whole, they work well, but occasionally there are some breakdowns and problems. However we must always learn, and change, and improve as a result of these episodes. We must remember not to be encumbered by litigation and mitigation, but continue to move forward and always strive to improve, otherwise our health care system will plateau and will never get any better. Most medical malpractice claims arise from negligence, injury and failure to disclose valuable information such as likely adverse Are there any good consequences from medical malpractice? L ast week, I noted we may damage ourselves by acting on faulty perceptions, probably more often than we know. Some people skip breakfast because they want to lose weight. Yet study after study shows skipping breakfast is the worst strategy one can take to lose weight. It simply doesnt work. Breakfast-skippers virtually always eat excess calories later in the day, especially in the evening or at night, with the result that they gain weight. Skipping breakfast does not help people lose weight. Yet they keep doing it because of a faulty perception that it will help them. The soft drink industry is huge around the world. It is successful because people perceive soft drinks to be refreshing and good. Yet the fact is that although soft drinks may taste sweet and refreshing, they are not good for health. A false perception of goodness causes millions of people to give their endocrine systems severe jolts with every soft drink. Americans get a large percentage of their meals today at fast food establishments. Studies show that most people do this because of convenience, taste, and low cost.

H EALTH& L IFE C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, A UGUST 30, 2011 C3 Daily inhaler treats chronic obstructive pulmonary disease Q : I heard about a new inhaler for chronic bronchitis or emphysema. What can you tell about it? A: The FDA recently approved ArcaptaNeohaler (indacaterol) for the long-term, once-daily maintenance treatment of airflow obstruction in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including chronic bronchitis and/or emphysema. When inhaled, the active ingredient in ArcaptaNeohaler works locally in the lungs to open or expand the bronchial breathing tubes. ArcaptaNeohaler is a long-acting agent and is the first once-daily product of this type to be approved in the United States for COPD. The most common side effects of ArcadaNeohaler include throat pain, inflammation of the nose/throat, headache and nausea. It is contraindicated in patients with asthma without the use of a long-term asthma control medication. This new product will be dispensed with a medication guide that includes instructions for use and information about risks of taking the drug. COPD is a chronic, progressive lung disease that is commonly caused by: tobacco smoking. air pollution. occupational exposure. COPD results in airflow obstruction and debilitating bouts of breathlessness. More than 12 million people in the United States are affected, while another estimated 12 million people are believed to have the disease, but remain undiagnosed. COPD ranks as the third-leading cause of death in the United States and a major cause of serious, longterm disability. Richard P Hoffmann, PharmD, has been a pharmacist for more than 40 years.

Fortunately, we have organizations in place to lead our nation in a movement to increase safety in medicine. This includes the Institute of Medicine, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), The Institute for Health Care improvement (IHI), The Joint Commission and The Leapfrog Group. All of these groups share similar goals and achievements, and desire for improvement and safety. The potential for improvement lies in reviewing past problems and claims, and to see if there is any trending or frequency so that measures can be placed to counteract these problems in the future, and decrease the amount of incidents. Even medical malpractice carriers study their clients. They come up with a list of system errors that they monitor, including medication related errors, communication errors, health care-associated infection, medical records errors, and identification errors which are commonly known as wrong-site surgery. Most of the time, provider error is the cause of the incident and claim. But second to provider care is system errors which also contribute to malpractice claims. Most frequently, the provider and system fails in medication monitoring, and dosing errors, which accounts for two-thirds of the medicine related errors. Communication errors involve the medical staff not communicating in a timely fashion, which is a smaller problem, and in many instances has been rectified by putting together specialty teams that respond quickly to a problem, sometimes doing that first before notifying the physician. An early and successful example of that is a cardiac arrest team that is in the hospital that responds at a moments notice. Health care-associated infections is the third most common problem, and in our age of technology and new procedures, and use of devices, this will always be present. An example of this might be a urinary tract infection from a Foley catheter that irritates the bladder. Lastly, medical record errors are fewer, and a lesser factor, but nevertheless important. An example might be a delay in recognizing elevated blood sugar and diagnosing diabetes. Once again, these type of problems are addressed by patient education, and there are programs, outpatient as well as in hospital, for patients to be educated. Reducing the risk of surgical claims is the main goal and drive of The Joint Commission. They frequently come in and review hospital operating rooms and protocols and systems, and make recommendations for guidelines to be implemented and followed to reduce the risk of injury. Medical malpractice is something that none of us want to experience, but it is a reality. When you have 300 million people in a nation, and thousands of hospitals, and tens of thousands of doctors, there is bound to be some problems, but we can learn from our past mistakes, and that is what medicine is all about. It is a constantly evolving learning process. It is true that people suffer and are injured, but as a whole we all benefit and move forward with the progresses of modern-day medicine.

Nonetheless, an estimated 30 million Americans use indoor tanning salons each year. Over half of the persons who endorse frequent sunbathing and the use of tanning beds report behaviors consistent with addictive disorders, including an inability to decrease their tanning frequencies, com pulsive tanning and continued tanning despite adverse consequences, as per Adinoff and coauthors. In an effort to add objective data to an investigation of the reward hypothesis of tanning, Adinoff and coauthors studied seven frequent tanners who responded to notices at two local tanning salons. In the notices, investigators requested volunteers who used a tanning bed at least three times a week and who said that maintaining a tan was important to them. Participants provided information about their medical and psychiatric history, and anyone with a history of major psychiatric disorders or substance abuse was excluded. Investigators also obtained detailed information about participants tanning history, and each tanner was evaluated for substance dependence disorder, modified to reflect tanning behavior instead of substance dependence. Each study participant attended two sessions during which they were imaged by single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). Participants were exposed to UVR during one session and to sham UVR during the other. Before the start of each session, participants were asked to rate their desire to tan on a visual analog scale. At the end of each session, participants completed two questionnaires, one about the tanning experience and the other about their desire to tan and the session they preferred more. The study group consisted of four women and three men, whose mean age was 31 and who had begun tanning regularly at 21. Following exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR), frequent tanners had increased regional cerebral blood flow in areas of the brain associated with experiencing reward. Regional cerebral blood flow did not increase when tanners were exposed to filtered UVR, suggesting the tanners could distinguish real UVR from the sham solely on the basis of how they felt. Even though this study involved only seven participants, it is a well-done study with detailed analysis of each participant. This tells everyone who is using indoor tanning to be very careful. Avoid frequent use. It may feel good for short time, but it hurts in the long run. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Thompson said his injury has been a long, painful road. Unable to afford surgery in the U.S. to fix his torn rotator cuff, he paid a medical tourism company that was supposed to schedule a cheaper procedure in Costa Rica. The company went bankrupt, however, and Thompson said he lost nearly $7,300. To have his personal information exposed on top of that was a final indignity. Im totally disgusted about everything, he said, calling the breach another kick in the stomach. Thomson is worried that hackers may have spotted his information online and tagged him for future financial scams. He contacted his bank and set up a fraud alert with the credit reporting agencies. He said the prospect of all health records going electronic which federal law mandates should happen by 2014 scares the living hell out of me. When mistakes occur, the fallout can be more severe than the typical breach of email addresses or credit card numbers. In the wrong hands, health records can be used for blackmail and public humiliation. The information can also be used by insurance companies to inflate rates, or by employers to deny job applicants. Usually when personal data are exposed, its the result of a network break-in by a hacker or a theft of computer equipment. Sometimes, it can be a simple case of someone mishandling the information. Leaks are more likely the more data are passed around within the health industrys increasingly interconnected networks. Dozens of companies can be authorized to handle a single persons medical records. The further away from the health care provider the records get, the flimsier the enforcement mechanisms for ensuring the data are protected. Thats exactly what happened at Hechts company. Our internal security policies and procedures werent followed, Hecht said. When we were notified, we took immediate steps to remediate the situation and took long-term steps to make sure it never happened again. The firm has since put the information behind a password, an approach that has its own security risks. Hecht declined to go into further detail about how the information ended up online. He said many of the Social Security numbers and basic details about peoples injuries were part of a database his firm compiled from information regularly sent by the state. Patricia Ortiz, spokeswoman for the state Division of Workers Com pen sation, said doctors notes and other documentation in such cases are publicly available, but they have to be requested one by one. The state stopped including Social Security numbers in those files in 2008; the exposed data came from older files. Ortiz said once workers compensation information leaves the states control, its security is the recipients responsibility. California, like most states, has a law requiring companies to notify consumers when their information has been breached. Hecht did not return calls from the AP seeking an update on how many patients had been notified. Large-scale medical data breaches have been on the rise in recent years. In one of the biggest, government health data was at risk in 2006 when a laptop with data on 26.5 million veterans was stolen from a government employees home. The computer equipment was recovered, and the FBI said the sensitive files werent accessed. This year, hard drives containing health histories, financial information and Social Security numbers of 1.9 million Health Net insurance customers disappeared from an office. State regulators launched investigations into Health Nets security procedures. The California company declined to comment, saying the incident was still under investigation. The latest incident is an eye-opener, and were going to get eye-opener after eyeopener, said Jim Dempsey, a security and public policy expert at the Center for Democracy & Technology. As instances of data mishandling become more commonplace, government officials may seek greater control over security policies of companies with access to health care records that arent currently regulated. It should be yet another warning bell for companies: Youve got your reputation on the line, and youre also facing enforcement action if you dont pay attention to the security of the data you collect and process, Dempsey said. Jordan Robertson can be reached at jrobertson@ ap.org. the combination of salt, sugar, and saturated fat. The reality is that this combination is toxic to living cells, leading over time to increased risks of high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease. The low cost of these foods is also a misconception. Aside from tax-subsidized agriculture being a reason for their low cost up front, their ultimate cost is high indeed when associated medical costs are eventually factored in. Most people today realize junk foods are not great for longterm health. Yet, like birds crashing into windows, they keep indulging themselves because of the perception these foods are inexpensively tasty. Exercise is generally recognized as beneficial, but many people say they dont have enough energy to exercise, often citing lack of enough sleep, or days that are too demanding. The reality is that the best way to improve ones energy level is by a program of regular exercise. Tobacco use differs from many problematic habits in that it is strongly addictive, which seriously complicates matters. However, kids experimenting with tobacco often have the misperception that its a cool thing to do. The reality, of course, is that tobacco use is one the most uncool habits one could take up. Depression is epidemic in the United States today, being 10 times more common than in earlier generations, including the generations that went through the great economic depression of the 1930s. Part of the current epidemic is related to perceptions of being unfairly victimized by life. In reality, life gives all of us countless opportunities to learn its lessons. Its how we handle these opportunities that makes a dramatic difference in our mental health. This is enough from the health arena, but let me briefly note that faulty perceptions can affect many areas in life. The political and religious worlds offer widely differing prescriptions for the good life. Many of these groups fight vigorously to defend their perceptions or attack competing ones. Interestingly, we can often see others faulty perceptions when we cant see our own. Are misperceptions at the root of many such conflicts? I dont want to take the bird metaphor too far, but we humans often act like birds with seriously faulty perceptions. How can we avoid faulty perceptions? Science helps determine what is true and what is not, but the history of science is not totally reassuring. It is not immune to faulty perceptions. Controversy swirls around many scientific findings, and this has been true throughout the scientific era. Today, we know that even the bedrock laws of physics established by Isaac Newton 400 years ago do not apply to the subatomic world of quantum physics. Even more mysterious is the presence of dark matter and dark energy in the universe, so named because we are so ignorant about them. More than 95 percent of the universe consists of dark matter and dark energy. We are literally in the dark in our knowledge about these phenomena. Even our most brilliant physicists dont understand them. If our top scientists have perception problems, how can we avoid falling prey to misperceptions? The short answer is that we cant at least not entirely. Still, we can obtain as much accurate information as possible from trusted sources. We can test such information as carefully as possible. Finally, its worth checking our perceptions with our own internal guidance systems. That is where the value of meditation can come into play. Wise people through the ages have found this valuable, and science today confirms that there is value in meditation. Why and how it works is another matter. Some say it is simply the quieted mind at work. Some say guidance comes through connecting with universal essence. Still others call it a result of connecting with God, Spirit, Source, or some other name. Whatever the concept may be, its a process that works if one stays with it. I gain clarity with meditation by going into a receptive mode in which I remain open and present for any guidance. If I need guidance for a specific problem or question, I may silently ask for direction. Amazingly enough, a clear answer often comes, but even when it doesnt, the process of meditation brings me quiet peace. The prophet Isaiah described the meditation process and its results beautifully more than 2,000 years ago. I close this issue of the newsletter by quoting him. They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31.)

H EALTH& L IFE C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, A UGUST 30, 2011 C5 Can fewer teeth lead to bad digestion? Q : Im 72 years old and have hardly any remaining molars (one on each side), but cant afford dentures. Im wondering what effect this is having on my digestion, since I cant chew my food properly before swallowing. I have noticed four to five hours can go by after a meal (even a light one) before I begin to feel hungry again, and wonder if this is because Im still working on digesting the poorly chewed food. I enjoy your column; you perform a great service. A: Thanks for your email. I enjoy writing the column and appreciate your kind words. If I understand your questions correctly, I am going to assume you have all of your teeth except your second and third molars. If this is the case, I think most dentists would agree many people function well with their first molars, as well as all the teeth forward of them. That would mean the patient has a total of 12 teeth in each arch instead of the expected 16. It is not uncommon for me to restore someones mouth in this exact fashion. It would certainly be nice to have one additional tooth in each quadrant, since it is very common to remove the third molars and never replace them. This being said, I would encourage you to see your family physician so he or she can evaluate your digestive system. You might even consider seeing a gastroenterologist a doctor who specializes in the digestive system. In the event I made the wrong assumptions and you have fewer teeth, you may not be chewing your food enough to allow for proper digestion. Since you cannot afford to replace the missing teeth, you can improve digestion by cutting your food into smaller pieces. You can also prepare smaller meals more often throughout the day. For instance, you can have six meals instead of the conventional three meals in a day. If you are like me and can finish a meal in a matter of moments, you might want to take more time to chew. Like many habits, this can be a hard one to break. If you go to the medical doctor and everything checks out OK, you might want to see your dentist anyway. There might be a low-cost solution to replace your missing teeth, especially if all you really want them for is better digestion. There is a specific type of partial denture I am thinking of that you may be able to afford. It is relatively low in cost and should be comfortable enough to get you through a meal. You may even end up wearing it all day long. I hope I have helped you in some way. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a Homosassa dentist. Send your questions to 4805 S.

P romoted as the No. 1 Elvis, Billy Lindsey proved that he had perfected the Elvis persona last week at the Homosassa Lions Club in another hit Encore Ensemble Theater presentation. The crowd of fans was in awe of his amazing performance. Lindsey wowed us with the way he personalized his tribute to the late Elvis Presley. The famous moves that only a discriminating Elvis fan can deeply appreciate were unmistakably Elvis. Having attended two of the late Elvis concerts in Lakeland and Tampa, I was astonished at the similarity of his voice, the articulation, the sincerity with which he emulated the incomparable Elvis style. VIP ticket holders were royally treated to a photo session with Lindsey, and two autographed CDs and an easygoing chat-back time in an outer room prior to the opening of the show. The event was a fundraiser for Jessies Place, the Wounded Veterans Program and the Lions Club. Mike Shier II served as master of ceremonies and performed songs he has auditioned with for American Idol and Americas Got Talent: This is the Moment from Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Sandy from Grease. Applause, applause. He does have talent to spare. Mike Shier had us rolling in the aisles with his standup comedy routines perfected as Jersey Mike in New Jersey night spots prior to relocating his family here. A powerful vocalist as well, he always delivers a professional performance. From deep within his soul, Shier portrays his genuine passion for the art of theater, music and entertaining and shares it generously with the community. The crowd went wild as Elvis took the stage dressed in a black rhinestone-studded ensemble, singing an early Elvis hit, Blue Suede Shoes. From the 1968 TV comeback special that we readily recalled, Lindsey gave us Heartbreak Hotel, Hound Dog, and All Shook Up. With each Elvis gesture, the audience squealed with delight, often clapping to the rhythm of the familiar beat, forming a line in the rear of the hall, swinging and swaying to the music as if they had rehearsed the routine. Performing Moody Blue, Elvis final recording, I recalled that I have that blue vinyl recording, a personal favorite in my collection of Elvis albums. From the fast-paced selections to the heartwrenching I Want You, I Need You, I Love You, the Lindsey take on Elvis was a memorable experience for us, especially those who resided here when Elvis came to town for Follow That Dream in the 1960s. Lindseys sincere, Thank you very much, reminded us of how gracious and polite Elvis was despite his worldwide fame. Two of Elvis favorite movie roles were King Creole, and Viva Las Vegas. Lindsey invited the audience to join in on the chorus and we were delighted to oblige. Delightful continued as we heard Paul Ankas My Way, Come Fly With Me, hits for Frank Sinatra. Powerful renditions from C.C. Rider, the familiar karate-chop moves, Rollin on the River, Heartbreak Hotel, Blueberry Hill, all rock n roll standouts weve enjoyed for years, made for an entertaining afternoon. Lindsey managed to keep the seams of his pants intact as he did the Elvis split to the tune of Polk Salad Annie. Uproarious applause ensued! Garnering a standing ovation for How Great Thou Art from Elvis award-winning album of hymns, Lindsey was every inch a showman. Engaging the audience with the Run Run Runaway, we echoed his Why, why, why on the chorus. The audience was extremely receptive. In tribute to the artistry of Lindsey, couples danced to the romantic ballads and gathered in line-dancing formation, swinging and swaying to the beat of Sweet Caroline, Caught in a Trap, I Cant Walk Out, and other Elvis standards. Closing with the Trilogy in honor of servicemen, veterans and police officers, the flag was unfurled around Lindseys shoulders, and then at the finish, with arms stretched in patriotic triumph, we applauded this amazing No. 1 guy, Bill Lindsey, Elvis extraordinaire!

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, A UGUST 30, 2011 C7 David Ogilvy, an advertising executive, said: Develop your eccentricities while you are young. That way, when you get old, people wont think youre going gaga. Mainly in magazine articles and newspaper columns, one player will find an eccentric bid (to get to the contract the author wishes to discuss) or an eccentric play (to throw an opponent off the scent). This deal contains both! How should South proceed in three no-trump after West leads the diamond four and East puts up his 10? The simple way to solve the bidding problem would be to move Norths five-card suit into the minors. But there is reason soon to be revealed behind my apparent eccentricity. South has seven top tricks: four hearts and three diamonds (given the lead). Probably four more winners will come from spades, but if the defender with that ace shifts to clubs, it will surely be curtains. To try to persuade the defenders to continue attacking diamonds, declarer should take the first trick with his king, not with the jack. When he then drives out the spade ace, West will probably persevere with diamonds. If South wins trick one with his diamond jack, though, West is more likely to shift in desperation to clubs. What happens if South is in four spades after a transfer sequence and a diamond lead? Then declarer immediately takes his three diamond winners and discards a club from the board. Finally, if North is in four spades, East will surely lead the club king. Then West must overtake with his ace and return the suit. He ruffs the third club and has the spade ace to come.

(N) D ear Annie: I work in a small office with two other people. The office was understaffed to begin with, and my boss is now undergoing chemotherapy and is out two weeks of every month. Then my co-worker decided to retire. As a result, I had to work a fair amount of overtime in our busiest season. Right now, the office consists of a part-time worker and me. Even though our busy season has passed, I still often end up with an hour of overtime each week. My bosss boss has decided that since my peak-season overtime wasnt pre-approved,she isnt going to pay it. Furthermore, she had my time clock hard coded so that no matter what time I log in or out, I only get credit for a standard workday. Im the only full-time, fully compensated employee, and I have significant responsibilities. If I dont stay late and do whatever needs to be finished, I get in trouble. If I do stay late, I dont get paid. I guess in this labor market, the boss wins. Needless to say, I am looking for another job. In the meantime, what do I do about this no-win situation? Workplace Dilemma Dear Workplace: You are being treated unfairly. However, in a small, privately owned business, there are likely no higher-ups to complain to. And although we agree that you should be compensated for the overtime, one extra hour a week is, frankly, not that much. What many employers fail to realize is that employees need to feel valued. You put in a lot of hard work during a busy season when you were effectively flying solo. The boss could alleviate much of this ill will (and the possibility of losing a loyal employee) simply by letting you know how much she appreciates you. We hope she sees this. Dear Annie: I am 50 years old and have been widowed for a year. I recently met a nice man, and we went on a couple of dates. But I had mixed feelings. I still felt married,and it was causing me great turmoil, so I told this wonderful guy that it was too soon for me to date. He said he respected my feelings and to give him a call when I am ready. Now Im regretting my decision. Hes a great guy, and we share similar interests. I dont know how to sort this out. My family still mourns the loss of my husband, who was an exceptional man. I dont know how they will react to my dating so soon, and Im afraid to ask for fear of upsetting them. What should I do? Widowed and Confused Dear Widowed: Dating is such a personal decision. Some people are ready in a month, while others never feel comfortable. Most folks would agree, however, that a year is a respectable amount of time to wait. You should feel free to date if you want to, but we also recommend you discuss this with your children. Let them know their father will never be forgotten, but you want to feel that happiness again someday and hope they will want that for you, too. Dear Annie: Id like to comment on the letter from Wedding Gift Nightmare,who gave her niece some antique china as a wedding gift. My husband and I had been married less than five years when we took a vacation to meet his Aunt Susie. She served us a delicious lunch. As we cleared the table and washed dishes, she asked if I liked a particular serving bowl. I said I did. She replied, Great. Its your wedding present.It seems it was a family heirloom and came with a neat story. After 40 years of marriage, I still have the bowl and a story I never hesitate to tell. Treasure those old gifts. They can be quite special in years to come. Lucky Niece To all our Muslim readers: Happy Eid.
