The National Hurricane Center in Miami cautioned the public still recovering along parts of the East Coast from Irene not to stress over the storm. It is over warm waters and in a low wind shear environment, two ingredients that could propel it to become a major hurricane. But its too soon to tell if it will ever come Still too soon to determine storms potential threat New company makes splash in county S HEMIR W ILES Staff Writer INVERNESS When Diana Broesler joined Smartphone Experts in 2004, she thought it would be her final business venture before finally retiring from the entrepreneurial grind. But she was wrong. After meeting a number of smart, gifted young people in the county, she said she saw they needed a place to express their talent and work. Therefore, she took her retirement money and opened up SocialMedia Designs along with Chris Kingree, Jason Bates, Rob Davies and Jason Bates. It is on State Road 44 in Inverness across from Brannen Banks West Inverness office. When describing what SocialMedia Designs does, co-owner and Broeslers son Kingree explained basically anything to grow a business. From web design to video production to managing social media accounts, Broesler said its a one-stop shop for any persons business needs. Instead of outsourcing it, we can do it local and at a professional level, Kingree said. In addition, every designer at SocialMedia Designs is local and self-taught. Broesler is no stranger to establishing a company in the county; shes been flexing her business chops since the 1970s. This New Jersey native first came to Citrus County in the early 1960s after her mom and dad bought property here. I came kicking and fighting, she said. It just wasnt the place Broesler wanted to be until she started doing volunteer work in the community. Then she eventually fell in love with the county and decided it would be a great place to raise a family. Before SocialMedia Designs, Broesler and Kingree were keeping busy with Smartphones Experts. Smartphone Experts was founded in 2002 with Marcus Adolfsson. Adolfsson and another college student started a Web site development company in their freshman year. In 2002, Adolfsson left that business, selling out to his partner, and launched TreoCentral, a community website dedicated to the Palm Treo, one of the worlds first smartphones. However, soon the business expanded to selling all kinds of smartphones and hosting websites that support blogs and forums. Kingree said it started out with shipping orders from a shed in his moms backyard to eventually establishing a warehouse in Inverness and becoming the largest shipper with UPS in Central Florida. In 2007, The Web site Inc. 5000, which lists the countrys fasted-growing companies, listed Smartphone Experts as No. 37 in consumer retail. Broesler said she is still very involved with Smartphone Experts, and SocialMedia Designs is intended to be a complimentary NOAA/Special to the Chronicle This image shows Tropical Storm Katia as it moved west this week.

We look at trends and we do some of them here, said Sharon Malm, co-owner of New Concepts International Hair Salon with Dale Malm. The Malms stylists study fashions popular in other countries. Theyll practice them on each other or a guest or a random person from out in the community that they will choose to try the styles on, she said. They use a system of gathering ideas through trade shows, fashion magazines and websites. They start with trends in the United States, following such cities as New York, Cleveland, Savannah and Los Angeles. Then stylists look farther afield to foreign capitals, such as Moscow or London or Paris. Typically, those are really crazy kind of styles that if you saw someone walking down the street in Crystal River, youd think someone dropped them from another planet, Malm said. So while we practice those, the whole point of doing them is to modify what we see so that it will work here. They look for basic shapes, such as whether styles are square or rounded. They also look for coloring trends. With styles, Malm said what goes down must rise again. Hairstyles cant get any flatter, so its got to go up, she said. So we know that perms are coming back. When a trend is noticed in New York or London, hairstylists should start practicing immediately before the demand reaches Citrus County. If we are seeing it out in L.A., we know that typically that it takes 18 months to two years to get down here, Malm said. The whole thing is that when we see it that far out, we can start practicing it. We can start being the first ones to bring it here. Stylists look not only at colors, but also shades of the colors. According to Malm, red is in vogue in Paris and Moscow, but she also considers which shades of red would appeal to customers here.

Copeland Elderly woman attacked by alligator Officials say an alligator attacked and severely injured an elderly woman in southwest Florida. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reports that 90-yearold Margaret Webb was walking near her Copeland home Wednesday when the 8-foot alligator lunged out of a canal. Officials say the woman, who lost part of her leg in the attack, was airlifted to a Fort Myers trauma center. FWC says a trapper was sent to the area to find the alligator. If found, the reptile will be cut open in an attempt to retrieve and reattach the leg.

C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterLabor Day will be almost as popular this year as it was last year. Floridians plan to taper off a little, according to AAAs Labor Day 2011 travel projections. Overall, 3 percent fewer Floridians will travel during the Labor Day holiday, defined as Thursday, Sept. 1 through Monday, Sept. 5. About 0.7 percent fewer drivers will be on the road this year compared to last, while air travel is expected to drop by 3.2 percent over last year, meaning 108,044 Floridians have flights booked. The decrease in expected travelers is a result of a mixed economic outlook and consumer uncertainty regarding the overall economy, said Brent Hubele, vice president, AAA Travel. However, the overall decrease in holiday travelers is minimal compared to last year and could even increase if gas prices continue to fall. Nationwide, about 31.5 million travelers will take a trip of 50 miles or more away from home, a 2.4 percent decrease compared to the 32.3 million who traveled in 2010. More vehicles will be on the roads, however. The number is expected to increase slightly with 27.3 million drivers compared to 27.2 million last year. Vehicle travelers will make up 87 percent of all travelers, a 3-percent increase from last year. Seven out of 10 vehicle travelers said gas prices would not impact their travel plans, even though retail gas prices are an average of 75 cents a gallon higher than last year. The current national average price of $3.57 a gallon, however, is 10 cents cheaper than the 2008 Labor Day price of $3.67. High gas prices will certainly have an impact on some travelers, said Jessica Brady, spokesperson, AAA Auto Club South. However, if prices continue to decrease as they have throughout the past four weeks, we could see a lot more people deciding to take a trip last minute. Air travel is expected to decrease 1.9 percent compared to the 2010 holiday, with 2.4 million travelers versus the 2.5 million who flew last year. Other modes of travel (trains, watercraft, multi-modal travel) will make up the remaining 5 percent of total person-trips (1.7 million travelers), down from the 2010 share of 8 percent, but well above the 4 percent seen in 2009. These modes are more highly used by those within lower income brackets, and as such, are highly sensitive to changes in disposable income. Hotel rates are expected to increase 6 percent from one year ago, with travelers spending an average of $148 per night compared to $139 last year. Weekend daily car rental rates will average $43, a 7-percent decrease from one year ago. The average distance traveled by Americans during the Labor Day holiday weekend is expected to be 608 miles, only slightly less than last years average travel distance of 635 miles, according to a survey of traveler intentions. Median spending is expected to be $702, largely unchanged from $697 last year. Fuel and transportation costs combine to consume the largest share of holiday spending (27 percent), followed by accommodations (22 percent), food and beverages (21 percent), shopping (13 percent), entertainment and recreation (12 percent), and other costs (5 percent). AAAs projections are based on economic forecasting and research by IHS Global Insight. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at (352) 5642916 or cvanormer@chronicle online.com.

Special to the Chronicle The Southwest Florida Water Management District will have a public meeting Thursday at Citrus County Auditorium to gather input needed to improve identification of flooding risks in the Tsala Apopka watershed. The district is serving as a cooperating technical partner for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on its national effort to update and modernize the FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs). Most of the current FIRMs are 10 to 30 years old and are outdated because of natural and physical changes caused by land use, development and erosion. The open house in Citrus County will present preliminary floodplain information and explain the basis behind the findings. This information will be used to identify areas of flood risk, which are based on watershed boundaries. The open house will begin at 1 p.m. and continue to 4 p.m. Thursday at the Citrus County Auditorium at 3601 S. Florida Avenue in Inverness. District representatives will be available to meet with residents anytime between 4 and 6:30 p.m. Residents affected by changes have received letters advising them of the need to contact the district and attend the open house. Future open houses will be scheduled for additional watersheds as preliminary models are completed. During the meeting, preliminary models and floodplain information will be presented to the public for review and comment. After addressing the comments, floodplain information will be finalized and presented to the Districts Governing Board for permission to develop the preliminary FIRMs for submittal to FEMA. District seeks input on flood insurance Rate maps to be redone Associated PressMIAMI Florida Gov. Rick Scott wants the state to compete in the next round of the U.S. Department of Educations Race to the Top competition, which could award up to $100 million to improve early learning. To apply for the grant, however, state legislators must approve a budget amendment accepting $3.4 million in federal funding for a home visiting program for atrisk families. The Florida Department of Health requested the grant in the last legislative session, but it was not funded. Ben Wolf, legislative analyst at the Florida House of Representatives, said at the time there was no knowledge it was tied to Race to the Top. The issue will go before the legislative budget commission on Sept. 7. The competition is the third round of the Department of Educations Race to the Top initiative, which has spurred education reform around the United States. Florida was awarded $700 million in the second round of the competition, funds that are now going toward creating new teacher evaluation systems, improving the lowest performing schools and other reforms that are designed to boost student achievement and close the achievement gap. The new round of the competition will award $500 million to states that have been leaders in early education, those programs that are designed to help prepare the youngest children for school. Studies have shown that children from disadvantaged backgrounds frequently enter kindergarten and first-grade already behind their more affluent peers. Proponents say early education programs can improve long-term performance. The early learning grant is aimed at expanding access to lowincome children and creating high quality services and assessments. In Florida, those funds would go toward improving the quality of school readiness programs, as well as the states voluntary pre-kindergarten and Head Start programs, said Amy Graham, a spokeswoman for Scott. Gov. Scott: Apply for Fed funds Wants state to compete in Race to the Top The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Low-income students using the corporate tax credit scholarship program to attend private schools showed slightly greater learning gains in reading and math tests than similar students in public schools, according to a new study. This study was cheered by pro-voucher groups, which believe it proves the once-controversial corporate tax credit scholarship program benefits low-income students. It validates what weve known, said Doug Tuthill, the president of Step Up For Students, the sole administrator of the program. We are proud of the gains, but we are not going to rest on our laurels. The report was commissioned by the Florida Department of Education and released Wednesday. The study says that students using the corporate tax credit scholarship showed slightly greater learning gains on reading and math in the Standard Achievement Test than similar students taking the FCAT in the 2008-09 school year. Florida Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson said in a tweet he was encouraged by the findings. Corporate tax credit scholarships are essentially voucher programs that allow public school students to attend private schools. Companies are allowed to donate money toward private school scholarships in exchange for a tax credit. Each student then receives a $4,011 scholarship to attend a private school. Critics of the tax credit scholarship program have argued that it diverts taxpayer dollars away from public schools. In Florida, schools are awarded money based on how many students they enroll. The program has proved popular with parents. Last year, 34,550 students were awarded scholarships, an increase of 5,623 students from the year before. More than 83 percent of those students attended religious schools with the scholarships.

News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE A Tampa Democrat has filed a Senate version of a proposed constitutional amendment to ban oil drilling within about 10 miles of Floridas coastline. The proposed amendment (SJR 90), filed Tuesday by Sen. Arthenia Joyner, matches a House version (HJR 23) filed earlier this year by Rep. Rick Kriseman, D-St. Petersburg. It would ask voters to put into the constitution a ban on exploration, drilling, extraction or production of oil in Florida waters. There are people still suffering from the big spill, Joyner said Wednesday. Do you want to expose Florida to the possibility of another spill but closer to our shore? I just cant believe people want to bring it that close, after seeing what happens when its farther out. To open up our shoreline to the possibility of oil is ludicrous, Joyner said. The move, which would need three-fifths approval of both chambers to get the proposal before voters, comes as backers of drilling have begun again raising the prospect of new exploration for both oil and gas to combat high energy prices, as well as reducing American dependence on foreign sources of energy. Just over a year after the BP Deepwater Horizon spill, largest oil spill in the history of the United States, Joyner said the push for drilling is regaining strength. She pointed to a suggestion this week by Republican presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann to consider new drilling in the eastern Gulf and, possibly, in the Everglades, if it can be done safely. When Bachmann brought it up at a South Florida campaign stop, she was greeted by calls of Drill Baby, Drill. It seems like we need it now more than ever, Joyner said of a constitutional ban. Senate President Mike Haridopolos has said he has no intention of pushing for new drilling in Florida waters this year. Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island, was a backer of a bill in 2010 that would have removed a moratorium on drilling in Florida waters, but changed his stance after the BP oil spill began in April of that year. Since then, Haridopolos has said there is a need for new drilling in American waters, but has given assurances that Florida waters which extend about 10 miles to the Gulf, and closer in the Atlantic would remain off the agenda in the coming year. The moratorium on drilling in Florida waters remains, but nothing would prevent lawmakers from lifting it, which is the impetus for the proposed constitutional ban. Then-Gov. Charlie Crist proposed such a ban in the wake of the spill, but the House refused to take it up. Crist is now, along with former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink, a backer of another push to get the idea before voters, a citizen initiative being pushed by a group called Save Our Seas, Beaches and Shores. That group is collecting signatures to try to get the issue on the ballot. Its leader, Manley Fuller, conceded Wednesday that it doesnt look like the grassroots group, which relies heavily on volunteers, will be able to hit its mark in time for the 2012 ballot. It would be extremely difficult, practically speaking, for us to make the ballot, Fuller said. Its been a mom and pop operation. Were looking for a major supporter, a major benefactor. We need some people to write some checks. It would be great if the Legislature would put it on the ballot, Fuller said. That would be wonderful. Gov. Rick Scott, who wouldnt have a say because proposed amendments passed by lawmakers go straight to the ballot without the governors approval, has recently said he supports additional drilling if it can be shown theres no chance of a major spill, but he hasnt been convinced of that yet. Opponents of drilling fear the debate over whether to allow it in Florida waters goes beyond the actual question of whether to let new exploration begin in the area.

see walking down the street in London, Malm said. Hair color affects all color trends in fashion. The colors of nail polish in L.A. are not the same as those used in other parts of the country, Malm explained. The business uses a Facebook page for social media networking. Each stylist is required to come up with a list of things that are happening in the industry, Malm said. She gave the latest update: Right now, the fashion industry says you dont match your fingernails to your toenails. We know that worldwide orange is the big color. You get all the little bits and pieces of information out to people whats in, whats not in, whats coming in. It all incorporates into what they are doing behind the chair. Industry leaders look at the overall shape of everything, Malm said. They look at the building shapes. They look at waves on the ocean; what kind of flowers are there. All of those shapes are in the haircuts. When cars start rounding, hair shapes start rounding. Style is interconnected, she said.

Theres no way at this point to say if it will make any impacts, let alone when it might make them, said Dennis Feltgen, a meteorologist and spokesman at the National Hurricane Center. Theres a reason we dont do forecasts more than five days in advance the information just isnt good. The error beyond that just isnt acceptable. As of 5 p.m., Katia was centered about 1,285 miles east of the Leeward Islands and was moving westnorthwest near 20 mph. Maximum sustained winds were near 70 mph, just shy of the hurricane threshold of 74 mph. It was expected to continue strengthening over the next day or two. Some models showed Katia veering away from the East Coast. But Feltgen said its simply too soon for coastal residents to tell. Folks along the East Coast shouldnt be getting a lot of heartburn over this not yet, he said. The storms name replaces Katrina in the rotating storm roster because of the catastrophic damage from the 2005 storm that devastated New Orleans and the coast. The World Meteorological Organization maintains six rotating lists of storm names, but it strikes names associated with storms that were catastrophically deadly or costly. In the meantime, forecasters were monitoring a tropical depression that developed Wednesday in the Pacific. It was about 55 miles northwest of Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico, with winds at 30 mph. Its moving northwest at about 7 mph but is weakening rapidly over southwestern Mexicos high terrain and expected to fall apart on Thursday. The government has discontinued tropical storm watches but the system is dumping heavy rain over parts of the states of Guerrero, Michoacan and Colima.

Associated PressATLANTA Half of Americans drink a soda or sugary beverage each day and some are downing a lot. One in 20 people drinks the equivalent of more than four cans of soda each day, even though health officials say sweetened beverages should be limited to less than half a can. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the figures Wednesday in a report said to be the governments first to offer national statistics for both adults and kids. Sweetened drinks have been linked to the U.S. explosion in obesity and related medical problems, and health officials have been urging people to cut back for years. Some officials have proposed an extra soda tax and many schools have stopped selling soda or artificial juices. But advocates say those efforts are not enough, and on Wednesday a coalition of 100 organizations announced a new push. The effort includes the American Heart Association and some city health departments who plan to prod companies to stop the sale of sugary drinks on their property or providing them at business meetings as Bostons Carney Hospital did in April. There will also be a new rush of media campaigns, like one starting soon in Los Angeles that will ask If you wouldnt eat 22 packs of sugar, why are you drinking it? The new CDC report may be ammunition. It found: About half the population drinks a sugared beverage each day. Males consume more than females, with teenage boys leading the pack. On average, males ages 12 through 19 drink the equivalent of nearly two cans of soda each day. Poor people drink more than the more affluent. Low-income adults got about 9 percent of their daily calories from sugary beverages; for high-income adults it was just over 4 percent. Blacks get more of their calories from sweetened beverages than other racial and ethnic groups. The study is based on inperson interviews of more than 17,000 people in the years 2005 through 2008. They were asked to recount everything they ate and drank during the previous day. Diet sodas, sweetened teas, flavored milks and 100 percent fruit juice did not count. Healthy-eating recommendations call for people to limit sugary beverages to about 64 calories per day. Thats a little less than half of a 12-ounce can of regular Coca-Cola, which is 140 calories. In other terms: An average can of sugared soda or juice has 10 to 12 teaspoons of sugar. There have been efforts to reduce childrens access to sodas and sports drinks in schools, with beverage companies agreeing to remove full-calorie soft drinks. But the CDC study found more than half of the drinks are consumed at home. Less than 1 percent are bought at schools or day-care centers. Death ELSEWHERE George Green, 59 SONGWRITER BLOOMINGTON, Ind.

Officials report swine flu death TAVARES Florida health officials said an 80-year-old woman has died after contracting the swine flu. The Lake County Health Department confirmed the death Tuesday. The woman recently traveled to California so it was difficult to determine where she picked up the virus.This is Lake Countys first swine flu death this year. Officials were surprised because most flu cases are diagnosed in the fall and winter.Fla. may avoid 2012 budget shortfall TALLAHASSEE Florida legislators and Gov. Rick Scott are getting some good news sort of about the state budget. A new three-year forecast released late Thursday by state economists cautiously predicts that the state might avoid a budget shortfall in 2012. But economists strongly warned the forecast is on shaky ground. It assumes a certain amount of growth over the next year that could be undermined by recent economic woes. importer-exporter, moving his esthetic focus to include an environmental solution. Traditionally, Bumgarners products have included such materials as pottery, ceramics, ornamental stone, metalwork, paper and ribbon. Now hes found a new and different material. Pointing to a lightweight disposable-looking plate, Bumgarner said, This product right here is made out of 100 percent starch or corn, so this is 100 percent biodegradable. The plate is not the only starch-based item in his product line. Everything from a medicine bottle that we throw away by the thousands every year, clamshell food containers, combs, for example. He said. These can be used in hotels and restaurants. Pottery is environmentally friendly because it is made of clay. But Bumgarner is importing another line of pots that go one better. Pottery, in all shapes and sizes, he said. This pot right here, for example, this is made out of 80 percent bamboo and 20 percent stone powder. So again, its 100 percent biodegradable. When its owner is finished with the mostly bamboo pot, it is easily disposable. They can bury it in their back yard and in a year its gone, Bumgarner said. The starch-based products disappear sooner. Within 60 to 90 days. The items made of starch and bamboo, called sustainable products, represent the latest trend in Bumgarners business. As an importer-exporter, he constantly looks out for new lines. Sometimes, he finds the products, then locates customers for them. Other times, clients go to Bumgarner to ask him to find sources of certain products they require. Bumgarner began his business simply. Actually, one day I said I want to go to China and develop a market, he said, to explain how he got started. Hes been doing business overseas for eight years. I have an apartment in Guangzhou, which is 90 miles northwest of Hong Kong, he said. I have an office over there and several Chinese employees. He said he had more passion than anything else to start his business. Sustainable products also are made in the United States, but are more expensive than those made overseas. However, even cheaper overseas products have too great an impact on the bottom line for many smaller businesses because the unit cost is higher than for plastic products. With smaller businesses, sustainable products are more difficult to implement in their businesses, Bumgarner said. But f you look at larger corporations like a Kodak or a Xerox or an Apple, or a Microsoft that have more dollar resources, they can say our profits can be a little bit less, but we can now tout that were promoting part of our organization as sustainable. That is why Bumgarner suggested a break for smaller businesses that use sustainable products. I would encourage some type of tax credits, for example, going to businesses that would convert to this type of material, he said. Yes, they will pay a little bit more for the product, but they will get some type of refund because they are not dumping it in the landfill. Plus, its darn good for our community. Its good because someday soon, landfills will be full. This type of product would totally free up all that space in the landfill because it would be biodegradable or compostable, Bumgarner said. Thats what I mean by trying to be open to different ways of thinking. Right now, Im working on a line of hospital products, like bedpans and wash basins. I have a whole series that Im ready to release. But the problem is Im having this cost issue again because people say, look, were trying to keep our budget down. When trash has to be hauled away, disposal costs will rise. Therefore, Bumgarner said the sustainable, biodegradable products would save over the longer term. There should be cost savings to customers using the products, he said. Even though branching out to other markets, Bumgarner still has new sustainable products for the horticulture industry. Im building a series of grow pots out of the same material, he said So all of the grow pots and bedding trays you know, the little six-pack with the petunias in it that little plastic thing, its all going to be made out of this. The plants can be planted in containers that will break down in the soil in a few weeks. Wont that be wonderful? Bumgarner asked.

Associated PressEVERGLADES NATIONAL PARK Out here, in the middle of the swamp, dragonflies circle and egrets glide above. When the airboat stops, a blissful quiet falls over Floridas Everglades, little more than the sound of gentle raindrops landing on still waters pierced by sawgrass. It is a one-of-a-kind place known for alligators, marshland and mangroves. But could it be known instead for tankers, rigs and oilmen? A seemingly door-shut debate over expanding Everglades oil drilling was singlehandedly reignited by Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, when the Minnesota congresswoman said this week shed be open to the idea. Though few expect her comments to amount to any actual U.S. policy shift and the amount of oil is not enormous, they have become the topic du jour among environmentalists who revere this place known as the River of Grass. If drilling sounds like an odd fit for this natural wonder, perhaps it shouldnt. Its been going on in the Everglades for decades. The story starts with entrepreneur Barron Collier who, beginning in 1921, purchased 1.3 million acres of land in Florida, and became the states largest landowner. Oil was discovered on the land in 1943. As the environmental movement reached its apex in the 1970s, Congress sought to protect the land and created the Big Cypress National Preserve to the west of most of Everglades National Park. Through deals and land swaps, though, the Collier family retained drilling rights and continues to pump oil to this day. That was part of the Faustian bargain, said Stuart Pimm, a professor of conservation ecology at Duke University. Collier Resources Co., which controls the mining operations, and its parent, Barron Collier Cos., declined to comment on their drilling interests. The operations nearly came to an end through a deal negotiated by the administration of President George W. Bush. In 2002, he announced a $120 million plan to buy back oil and mineral rights. Gale Norton, the interior secretary at the time, hailed it as a victory for the long-term conservation of the Everglades. But the deal ultimately fell through when Congress refused to approve the down payment amid allegations the government was substantially overpaying. Since then, Collier Resources has sought to expand its yields through increased exploration and drilling. Associated PressWASHINGTON The Justice Department filed suit Wednesday to block AT&Ts $39 billion deal to buy T-Mobile USA on grounds that it would raise prices for consumers. The government contends that the acquisition of the No. 4 wireless carrier in the country by No. 2 AT&T would reduce competition and that would lead to price increases. At a news conference, Deputy Attorney General James Cole said the combination would result in tens of millions of consumers all across the United States facing higher prices, fewer choices and lower quality products for mobile wireless services. The lawsuit seeks to ensure that everyone can continue to receive the benefits of competition, said Cole. AT&T said it would fight and ask for an expedited court hearing so the enormous benefits of this merger can be fully reviewed. The company said the government has the burden of proving alleged anti-competitive effects, and we intend to vigorously contest this matter in court. Four nationwide providers Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint account for more than 90 percent of mobile wireless connections. T-Mobile has been an important source of competition, including through innovation and quality enhancements such as the roll-out of the first nationwide high-speed data network, according to Sharis Pozen, acting chief of Justices antitrust division. Mobile wireless telecom services play an increasing role in day-to-day communications, with more than 300 million smart phones, data cards, tablets and other mobile wireless devices in use. Deutsche Telekom, the owner of T-Mobile, had no immediate comment. The proposed cash-andstock transaction would catapult AT&T past Verizon Wireless to become the nations largest wireless provider, and leave Sprint Nextel Corp. as a distant number three. In a statement, Sprint said the Justice Departments lawsuit delivered a decisive victory for consumers, competition and our country. By filing suit to block AT&Ts proposed takeover of T-Mobile, the DOJ has put consumers interests first. AT&T and T-Mobile compete nationwide, in 97 of the largest 100 cellular marketing areas, according to the suit filed in U.S. District Court in Washington. The suit says AT&Ts acquisition of T-Mobile would eliminate a company that has been a competitive factor through low pricing and innovation. T-Mobile had the first handset using the Android operating system, Blackberry wireless email, the Sidekick smart phone, national Wi-Fi hotspot access and a variety of unlimited service plans. In support of its case, the department quoted an unidentified AT&T employee on a competitive issue, the sophisticated wireless broadband devices that can provide high-speed data connections. The AT&T employee, according to the suit, noted that T-Mobile was first to have such devices in its portfolio and that we added them in reaction to potential loss of speed claims. Federal Communications Commission chairman Julius Genachowski said the record before his agency raises serious concerns about the impact of the proposed transaction on competition. Commission member Michael Copps, a Democrat and a staunch opponent of industry consolidation, said that he shares the concerns about competition and have numerous other concerns about the public interest effects of the proposed transaction, including consumer choice and innovation. Democratic Sen. Herb Kohl of Wisconsin, who heads the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on antitrust, competition policy and consumer rights, said the suit was an effort to protect consumers in a powerful and growing industry that reaches virtually every American. AT&T and T-Mobile also have said the merger would reduce dropped and blocked calls, and speed mobile Internet connections for subscribers. Faster service would result by combining their limited wireless spectrum holdings at a time when both companies are running out of airwaves to handle mobile apps, online video and other bandwidthhungry services.A8 T HURSDAY, S EPTEMBER 1, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE 00092F0 Wednesday, September 14th Thomas Dawson, OD 352.795.3317 Crystal Eye Center 1124 N.

LIMITED TIME ONLY $100 OFF 20-watt fan Govt sues to block merger AT&T seeking to acquire smaller rival T-Mobile Associated Press A door is held open Wednesday for a man entering the T-Mobile corporate headquarters in Bellevue, Wash. The Justice Department filed suit Wednesday to block AT&Ts $39 billion deal to buy T-Mobile USA on grounds that it would raise prices for consumers. T-Mobile faces big problemsNEW YORK The Justice Departments move to block AT&T Inc. from buying T-Mobile USA is motivated by the desire to keep a lowpriced competitor in the game. But thats a game TMobile is losing. Despite low prices and a peppy pitchwoman in a polka-dot dress, T-Mobile customers have been fleeing to other carriers in the last year and a half. T-Mobiles 33.6 million customers may be relieved that the federal government is trying to block the merger, so they can keep their wireless service plans. But in the long run, T-Mobile is in an unsustainable position. Analysts say the companys past decisions have painted it into a corner. The No. 4 wireless carrier is being squeezed by competitors from two directions. At the high end of the market, it cant compete with Verizon Wireless and AT&T Inc., the market leader and no. 2, respectively. At the low end, T-Mobile is struggling against competitors like Sprint Nextel Corp., which sells government-subsidized lifeline service, and MetroPCS Holdings Corp., which targets urban, working class consumers with cheap unlimited plans. Essentially, T-Mobile is seen as a cheap brand by those who can afford better, and as an expensive one by those who pinch every penny. Were stuck in the middle from a brand point of view, T-Mobile CEO Philipp Humm said in January. From wire reports Bachmann revives debate on drilling in Everglades Candidate wants flexibility
Associated PressTOMIOKA, Japan Vines creep across Tomiokas empty streets, its prim gardens overgrown with waist-high weeds and meadow flowers. Dead cows rot where they were left to starve in their pens. Chicken coops writhe with maggots, a sickening stench hanging in the air. This once-thriving community of 16,000 people now has a population of one. In this nuclear no-mans land poisoned by radiation from a disaster-battered power plant, rice farmer Naoto Matsumura refuses to leave despite government orders. He says he has thought about the possibility of getting cancer but prefers to stay with a skinny dog named Aki his constant companion. Nearly six months after Japans catastrophic earthquake and tsunami, the 53year-old believes he is the only inhabitant left in this town sandwiched between the doomed Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station to the north and another sprawling nuclear plant to the south. If I give up and leave, its all over, he told The Associated Press. Its my responsibility to stay. And it is my right to be here. Matsumura is an anomaly in a country where defiance of the government is rare and social consensus counts above everything else. Yet, Matsumuras quiet civil disobedience speaks loudly of the dilemma facing the more than 100,000 silent nuclear refugees who were displaced by the March 11 disaster. Tokyo was quick to establish evacuation zones around the plant but has been slow to settle the refugees. A government order forbids them from going back to their homes in a half dozen towns around Fukushima Dai-ichi that were declared off-limits after the tsunami-stricken nuclear plant started spewing radioactivity. We are already being forgotten, said Matsumura, a leathery but clean-cut man with the sturdy build of a farmer. The rest of the country has moved on. Tomiokas city hall has been moved to a safer city in Fukushima prefecture, where thousands of its residents live in makeshift shelters. Thousands more have scattered across the country. The town itself is sealed behind police barriers, which hide the heart of the nuclear no-go zone, an area that is officially too dangerous for human habitation. Officers are sent into Tomioka each day to search for burglars or violators of the keep-out order. By law, anyone caught inside the zone can be detained and fined. But authorities mostly turn a blind eye to Matsumura, though he says he has been confronted by the police a few times. If there are other holdouts, they have escaped detection. Some people stayed behind, some stayed with me in my house, he said. But the last one left a few weeks ago. He asked me to take care of his cats. Tomioka official Tomio Midorikawa, who is in charge of the towns living and environment division, said the last resident was persuaded to leave in early August the same time Matsumura claims his neighbor left. He was not aware of Matsumura. Without electricity or running water, Matsumura fires up a pair of old generators each night and draws his water from a local well. He eats mostly canned foods, or fish that he catches himself in a nearby river. He said that once or twice a month, he makes his way to a city outside the zone in his mini pickup truck to stock up on supplies and gas. He has taken it upon himself to tend to the towns abandoned cats and dogs, including the wolflike Aki. Ive gone to Tokyo a couple of times to tell the politicians why Im here, he said. I tell them that it was an outrage how the cows were left to die, and how important it is for someone to tend to the family graves. They dont seem to hear me. They just tell me I shouldnt be here to begin with. Matsumura said he did leave once, but the ensuing experience only strengthened his desire to return. It was strange being alone at first, but I am resolved to stay, he said.

Associated PressNEW YORK It was a quiet end to a wild month for financial markets. Stocks edged higher for a fourth straight day Wednesday on a report that factory orders surged in July. The Dow Jones industrial average turned higher for the year. The Dows winning streak ended a tumultuous August that included four consecutive days of swings of 400 points or more, a first in the history of the index. A surge in factory orders indicated to investors that the manufacturing industry is still healthy. Orders rose 2.4 percent in July, the largest increase since March, after falling 0.4 percent in June. That decline caused worries that manufacturing, one of the bestperforming areas of the U.S. economy since the recession ended two years ago, might be starting to sputter. The Dow rose 53.58 points, or 0.5 percent, to end at 11,613.53. It fell 4.4 percent for the month, although it is now up 0.3 percent for the year. Aluminum maker Alcoa Inc. rose 3.6 percent, the most of the 30 companies that make up the Dow average. Joy Global rose 1.3 percent after the mining equipment maker said its earnings rose 46 percent because of strong global demand for commodities like copper and coal. That helped to push up other stocks in the mining and commodities industry. Equipment giant Caterpillar Inc. rose 1.3 percent. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 5.97, or 0.5 percent, to 1,218.89. It fell 5.7 percent for the month. Financial stocks were the worst performers in August as many worked to raise capital to comply with new regulations. On Wednesday, nine of the 10 company groups that make up the index rose. The telecommunications industry was the only one to fall. AT&T Inc. plunged 3.9 percent after the Justice Department filed a lawsuit to stop the companys $39 billion merger with rival TMobile USA. Sprint Nextel Corp., which opposed the deal, rose 5.9 percent. The Nasdaq composite index rose 3.35, or 0.1 percent, to 2,579.46. It fell 6.4 percent for the month. The Dow, S&P and Nasdaq each had their worst August since 2001. The market is closing out an extraordinarily volatile month. The Dow was as high as 12,132 this month and as low as 10,719 in the span of 23 trading days. The volatility that began in late July seeped into August amid the debate in Washington over extending the countrys borrowing limit to avoid a debt default.

O PINION Page A12 THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2011 Questions, questions Regarding Sen. Nelsons chat with local officials in the Aug. 24 issue of the Chronicle : It must be election time again. I have lived in Citrus County going on six years; I do not recall Sen. Nelson visiting the county in the recent past. Why visit just to talk with local officials? Perhaps he does not want to explain his record to anyone who has followed his liberal voting record in the Senate. I would have loved to hear his explanation of why he has voted for every spending bill that has come before the U.S. Senate. I would have loved to ask the senator why the Senate has not acted on a federal budget for over 900 days. I would have loved to ask the senator why he has been a party to the Obamas administration adding $4 trillion to our national debt since Jan. 20, 2009. I would have loved to have asked the senator why he voted for Obamacare. I would have loved to ask the senator why he voted for a stimulus bill when we are borrowing over 40 cents of every dollar we spend. I would love to have asked the senator why there has been no effort to reform Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Housing of Urban Development (HUD) the agencies at the forefront of the sub-prime mortgage fiasco. Questions, questions and more questions! Yes, I am sure that Sen. Nelsons explanation of the debt impressed local officials. The Democratic Party has experts and spin masters providing their members very good talking points. Unfortunately, these talking points are half-truths and distortions of the facts to show the party leaders in a favorable light. Sen. Nelson is just another mouthpiece for the liberal Democrats led by Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. Wake up, local elected officials. If one is not part of the solution, then one must be part of the problem. From my position of observation, elected officials like Sen. Nelson are definitely part of the problem! How can he not be when he is connected at the hip to Sen. Harry Reid?Floyd Ford Crystal River Holiday help needed Many Citrus County residents know about our big holiday display on Mary Lue Street in Inverness. Last year, we had approximately 2,500 visitors stroll around the Sojka Wonderland of Lights. Santa comes each night starting Dec. 16 through Dec. 24 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Last year, Santa was able to hand out over 500 toys to the children who visited, thanks to local Lions Clubs and individuals who donated hundreds of stuffed animals and toys. This year, we are letting the community know that we could use help again with donations of stuffed animals, dolls or any other small toys that Santa can give to the kids. Visiting our display has become an annual tradition for many Citrus County families, and we love having everyone come and share the wonderful spirit of Christmas with us. It takes us three months to put up our display and then another three months to take it down, so everyone can appreciate how much work goes into this each year. For us, this is a labor of love, and we hope to continue the tradition for many more years to come. Donations can be dropped off at our home, or call us at (352) 860-0879 to make arrangements for pickup. Our thanks to everyone and we hope to see you all at Christmas! Well have a cup of hot cocoa and a cookie waiting for you. Frank and Linda Sojka Inverness M ITCHA LBOM Tribune Media ServicesJ ournal headline read: Jobs Legacy: Changing How We Live. Well. Yes and no. No doubt Steve Jobs, who announced his resignation this past week, had an impact on the world. The man who shaped Apple into the most influential company of our time also changed global technology forever. Go anywhere on the planet. See a kid with an iPod. A businessman with an iPad. Teenagers with iPhones. A row of Apple computers in a classroom. All of it began somewhere in Jobs amazing mind. The music business was revamped because of Apple. The computer business was revamped because of Apple. The cellular phone business, the book business, the online shopping business, the app business all have been forged, molded, rewritten or turned on their ears by Apple. And Jobs was involved with all of it. So, yes, considering how those things affect our day-to-day existence, you have to say Jobs changed how we live. On the other hand, he quit because hes sick. And in that way, nothings changed since the dawn of time. Jobs is a harsh yet humbling reminder that we can never overpower our mortality. History is rife with men who seemed to build their way past the grave. Pharaoh. Alexander the Great. Countless emperors and kings. In the end, no matter how large their tombs or how jeweled their coffins, they left the world as they entered it. Jobs has built the modern day equivalent of the Pyramids, he has wealth beyond measure and creations that will go down in history. Yet he is only 56, a relatively young man by todays standards. And while details of his illness are a bigger secret than the insides of the next iPhone, he has previously struggled through pancreatic cancer and a liver transplant. He has had several health-related leaves of absence. Now he steps aside permanently from the role that was his birthright. His mind is still up to the task. His body is not. I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apples CEO, I would be the first to let you know, Jobs wrote in his resignation letter. Unfortunately, that day has come. And with that, a man who thinks beyond most of his contemporaries may face his mortality before them. We live in heady times. Think about the powerful men who have been felled in the last 10 years. The iconic from Walter Cronkite to Michael Jackson took their last breaths, despite being considered the best in their fields. The villainous like Osama bin Laden or Saddam Hussein are gone from the world, despite their desires to control it. The ironfisted like Tunisias Zine El Abidine Ben Ali or Egypts Hosni Murbarak have lost their grip, despite the decades they held it. No amount of power is permanent. No list of accomplishments is a shield. No bright light of fame can throw a larger shadow than the one that overtakes you in the end. Steve Jobs changed so many things, from tiny music players to complex operating systems, things that improved the efficiency of our lives, the speed of our lives, the entertainment, communication and wow factor of our lives. But he did not change how we live not in the big picture. Were still born, we still die and were still here for a limited yet unknown period. Some of us smoke and drink and live to be 90. Some of us exercise, watch our weight and get a terminal illness at 35. I once read where Jobs told a reporter that he was saddened when his business took him away from his children for more than a day or two. It was a rare glimpse into a closely guarded private life. Yet it spoke to something I imagine he feels even more strongly today. We are still, no matter what our accomplishments, only human. And the ultimate operating system is still a mystery. A conclusion is the place where you get tired of thinking. Martin H. Fisher One thing Steve Jobs couldnt change: our mortality CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M.

He points with pride to a slide showing the dramatic reduction of lawsuits, from just shy of 50 when he took office to fewer than 10 new cases currently. Generally speaking, thats a good thing. In past administrations weve questioned if the appraiser has been overly litigious. Litigation results when the property owner and the Property Appraisers Office differ on a propertys valuation for tax purposes, and they are unable to come to a negotiated agreement. Going to court is costly, Greene says, citing situations in which legal fees could nearly rival disputed differences in valuations tax consequences for the year. Some of the highest profile lawsuits have been with larger corporations. They know that property valuation is a negotiation, and they have staff members whose jobs focus on just that, not to mention others whose job it is to litigate, to avoid setting a precedent they dont want to live with in the future. We agree that legal slugfests are not necessarily a good use of taxpayer monies, but its periodically necessary to exercise legal muscle to ensure were not rolling over when it comes to getting whats due. The goal must be to make fair evaluations of property market value, whether its for a big commercial entity or a small property owner. A property owner who disagrees with the assigned valuation should first gather supporting data, then discuss it with the Property Appraisers Office, perhaps enlisting the services of a tax appeal professional. Reasonable negotiation often can produce a number thats fair and acceptable to all parties. The significant reduction in lawsuits involving the Property Appraisers Office is a positive, provided the degree of accountability isnt diminished. THE ISSUE: Property appraiser says court fights generally not worth it.OUR OPINION: Well-calculated lawsuits sometimes necessary.

Great job. It was nice seeing everybody working together, and (I) hope we can work together in the future.Beware of scamCitizens, beware. I got a call last night from something called Citrus County Paramedics Association Fund Drive, asking for money for the paramedics. I am so pleased that I called the sheriffs office, who put me in touch with the paramedics, and this is not a local function. The local paramedics in our county are not getting money from this. If you received a phone call, please call 249-4700 to the local paramedics and confirm, for your own benefit, that they did not call you. They do not call. This is an outside union organization doing this.Clinic thanks Thanks to Dr. Hosner of Crystal River. Thanks for your tooth-care clinic of Friday, Aug. 19. I arrived at the office at 5:10 in the morning only to find that there were already three others waiting in line. It was on a first-comefirst-served basis and the first patient would be seen around 8 a.m. Being patient No. 4, I was seen around 8:30 in the morning and I was out before 9 a.m. I had my choice of either a cleaning or fixing of a chipped tooth. The doctor told me that it would cost more to have the chipped tooth fixed in the future than what it would cost me for a cleaning. I went with his advice and got my chipped tooth fixed and was very happy with the professional care that I was given. Again, thanks for your free tooth care.Commercial warningI think that all political commercials should come with a warning that states, The following message may or may not be true.Ill-gotten gains This is for the party that stole a package from my porch from a house on South Desoto Street, Beverly Hills: I do hope that you enjoy the contents of the package.

Hurricane damage costly Associated PressKILLINGTON, Vt. Swollen rivers began falling Wednesday in much of the Northeast, easing the flooding that paralyzed parts of the region after Hurricane Irene and allowing emergency crews to reach all but one of the Vermont towns that had been cut off by floodwaters. Receding water revealed more damage to homes, farms and businesses across the floodscarred landscape. Repair estimates indicated the storm would almost certainly rank among the nations costliest natural disasters, despite packing a lighter punch than initially feared. Of the 11 towns that had been cut off from the outside world, all except tiny Wardsboro had been reached by rescuers, and authorities were hoping to reach it soon. National Guard helicopters continued to ferry supplies to mountain communities that had no electricity, no telephone service and limited transportation in or out. At Killington Elementary School, residents came for free hot dogs and corn-on-the-cob. Jason and Angela Heaslip picked up a bag filled with peanut butter, cereal and toilet paper for their three children and three others who are visiting from Long Island. Right now, theyre getting little portions because were trying to make the food last, said Jason Heaslip, who only has a dollar in his bank account because the storm has kept him from getting paid by the resort where he works. Don Fielder, a house painter in Gaysville, said the White River roared through his house, tearing the first floor off the foundation and filling a bathroom tub with mud. He was upbeat as he showed a visitor the damage, but said hes reluctant to go into town for fear he will cry when people ask about the home he built himself 16 years ago. Other losses include a 1957 Baldwin piano and a collection of 300 Beanie Babies amassed by his daughter, who does not live with him but has a bedroom at his house. I bet thats in the river, he said. If Irenes death toll stands, it would be comparable to 1999s Hurricane Floyd, which also struck North Carolina and charged up the East Coast into New England, causing most of its 57 deaths by inland drowning. At the time, it was the deadliest U.S. hurricane in nearly 40 years but was later dwarfed by the 1,800 deaths caused by Katrina in 2005. An estimate released immediately after Irene by the Kinetic Analysis Corp., a consulting firm that uses computer models to estimate storm losses, put the damage at $7.2 billion in eight states and Washington, D.C. Even as rivers finally stopped rising in Vermont, New Jersey, and Connecticut, many communities and farm areas remained flooded, and officials said complete damage estimates were nowhere in sight. Large sections of Wallington, N.J., remained underwater after a cruel one-two punch: The Passaic River flooded the hamlet Sunday and then receded, only to rise again. Dog saved Associated Press Brook Collins punched a black bear in the snout on Sunday, after the bear attacked her dog Fudge, at her home in Juneau, Alaska. FBI veteran rises to No. 2 post WASHINGTON A 24year FBI veteran with extensive counterterrorism experience, Sean Joyce, has been named the law enforcement agencys new deputy director. Elevated to the No. 2 post within the FBI by Director Robert Mueller, Joyce replaces Timothy Murphy, who is retiring after 23 years with the bureau. Since last year, Joyce has been executive assistant director of the national security branch, responsible for the FBIs national security and intelligence operations. He earned the Attorney Generals Award for Exceptional Service in 2004 for work on a counterterrorism squad in Dallas. In 2008, he was named chief of the counterterrorism divisions international terrorism operations section, with responsibility for international terrorism matters within the United States. Earlier in his career he was a member of the bureaus Hostage Rescue Team.

The discovery was made as part of the far-reaching investigation into a suspected pedophile identified only as Robert M., who was arrested in Amsterdam last year. He is accused of abusing dozens of young children while he worked in at least two Amsterdam preschools. The Dutch polices National Investigations Office said in a statement it had managed to infiltrate several hidden services sites internationally where users can surf the internet and communicate anonymously. There, they found some 220,000 child pornography photos and videos. Four of the websites were housed on two servers based in the United States. Investigators managed to break into them and access the images as well as online chats that included identifying details of users of the sites.

Wildfires destroy Texas homes Associated PressPOSSUM KINGDOM LAKE, Texas Residents of a subdivision in a parched North Texas wilderness area didnt hesitate when ordered to flee an advancing wildfire, and dozens who were hemmed in by flames blocking the road out escaped by boat without a single major injury, authorities said Wednesday. The wildfire that swept through the Possum Kingdom Lake neighborhood on Tuesday one of several burning in Texas and Oklahoma destroyed 25 homes and turned the normally lush landscape into a blackened mess. Some streets were virtually untouched, with homes fronted by lawns that could double as putting greens, but others were reduced to rows of scorched stone fireplaces and twisted metal frames. Its devastating, of course, and its going to take a while to get over, but were going to carry on, Palo Pinto County Sheriff Ira Mercer said. Only hotspots remained Wednesday in the upscale subdivision, which was the only one not affected by wildfires that roared through the Possum Kingdom Lake area in the spring, scorching hundreds of thousands of acres and destroying 160 homes. The most recent fire had burned some 5,100 acres, further devastating the popular vacation spot about 75 miles west of Fort Worth. Texas and Oklahoma are in the grips of a record-setting drought, and a summer of soaring temperatures and little rain has meant the wildfire season, which usually ends in spring, never ended. Mercer said that unlike April, when residents had to be told three or four times before theyd leave the area, those whose homes were threatened Tuesday left as soon as they were told. Flames blocked the road leading out of the subdivision and hemmed in a group of several dozen residents and law enforcement officers, so they turned back and escaped by boat on Possum Kingdom Lake, Mercer said. It took about six or seven trips, but everyone escaped safely, even if some of them left with frayed nerves, he said. A little old lady was just shaking. These people were leaving with just the clothes on their backs, and they dont know whats going to happen to their homes and their stuff, Mercer said.

Swollen rivers retreat U.S. security intensifying as Sept. 11 date nears Associated PressWASHINGTON As the nation prepares for the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks a date al-Qaida has cited as a potential opportunity to strike again security is intensifying at airports, train stations, nuclear plants and major sporting arenas around the country. At this point there is no specific credible threat, but that doesnt mean we are relaxing at all in terms of our vigilance, said John Brennan, President Barack Obamas homeland security and counterterrorism adviser. We are concerned about the lone actors that are out there, we are concerned that al-Qaida or others may try to take advantage of the 9/11 anniversary events, Brennan told The Associated Press on Wednesday. Were looking at all different angles what might have been planned for a while, were still looking for indications that there might be something out there, but we are very interested in seeing whether or not theres any indication whatsoever of a lone actor and thats much more difficult to pick up. The security ramp-up around the country underscores a shift in policing focus since the attacks a decade ago. Officers and emergency responders have been trained in detecting suspicious activity that could uncover a terror plot, aware that the threat has changed in part from an organized large-scale attack using airliners as missiles to the potential for smaller, less sophisticated operations carried out by affiliated groups or individuals. Metropolitan areas are on alert. Throughout the city, whether its the ports or the airports or venues or whatever, you will see an increase in awareness, an increase in resources at strategic places, said Mark Eisenman, assistant chief over the homeland security command for the Police Department in Houston, home to the countrys largest port. New Yorkers will see more police officers on patrol in and around ground zero, where the World Trade Center towers stood, said Police Department spokesman Paul Browne. In Florida, there will be extended staffing at the state's fusion center, an intelligence-sharing operation established after 9/11. Associated PressTRIPOLI, Libya Moammar Gadhafis son Seif al-Islam vowed Wednesday to fight to the death, insisting no regime loyalists would surrender to the rebels, who are closing in on Gadhafis final strongholds. Seif al-Islam, Gadhafis longtime heir-apparent, said he was speaking from the suburbs of Tripoli and insisted his father was fine. We are going to die in our land, he said in an audio statement broadcast on Syrias AlRai television, claiming he was speaking for loyalist leaders who had met in the Gadhafi bastion of Bani Walid. No one is going to surrender. His statement came shortly after a conflicting interview on AlArabiya television by a man claiming to be his brother, al-Saadi, who said he was ready to mediate talks with the rebels in order to bring the fighting to an end. The most important thing is to stop the bloodshed, al-Saadi told the Saudia Arabian television network, claiming he was speaking on behalf of his father. A rebel commander in Tripoli, Abdel Hakim Belhaj, said earlier Wednesday that al-Saadi was trying to negotiate terms for his own surrender if his safety could be guaranteed.

Inside, one young American, Christina McHale, was preparing to speak at a news conference about reaching the third round with a surprise victory over a past Grand Slam finalist. Another, Irina Falconi, was on court, starting a match that would end with her waving a giant U.S. flag to celebrate her own upset. As those events unfolded the most stunning, of course, being seven-time major champion Williams withdrawal shortly before her second-round match because of an illness she hadnt previously disclosed it was possible to see a symbolic shift for U.S. womens tennis. Williams revealed she recently was diagnosed with Sjogrens syndrome, which doctors say is usually not life-threatening. The most common complaints are dry eyes and dry mouth; in rare cases, it can cause joint pain. I am thankful I finally have a diagnosis and am now focused on getting better and returning to the court soon, said Williams, who has played only 11 matches in the last 11 months. Lately, as the 31-year-old Williams and 29-year-old sister Serena have dealt with health problems and played less frequently, people have wondered when and perhaps whether another American woman would make an impact in the sport. For one day, at least, McHale and Falconi did just that. Ive heard so much about media talking about American tennis, and I really Miamis Golden: Clearly, this was the first obstacle Coach ready for challenge Associated PressCORAL GABLES On the day he was hired as Miamis football coach, Al Golden said his experience at Temple prepared him for just about anything. Hes about to put that notion to the test. Golden caught Miamis attention by overcoming countless obstacles at Temple, such as massive reductions in scholarships along with a lack of any real tradition, and turning the Owls into a winner. And now his career at Miami will begin facing a new batch of challenges, mostly brought on by an extra-benefits scandal that might hang over the Hurricanes for years. All the reasons that you come to the University of Miami as the head football coach or as an assistant coach or as a student-athlete remain, Golden said Wednesday in an interview with The Associated Press. Clearly, they remain. The task of rebuilding the Hurricanes was daunting enough before the NCAA scandal remember, Miami still has not won a conference title since leaving the Big East for the Atlantic Coast Conference, and last hoisted a national championship trophy a decade ago. With the scandal, its a far bigger challenge now, but one that Golden welcomes. I really believe in my heart and I know the staff does too, that if we didnt have a foundation and a culture that was built on core values and built on principles obviously to teach life skills and to create self-reliant and independent young people, I think we would be struggling right now, Golden said, sitting at his desk with game plans strewn about. We would be sitting here and there would be a lot of things collapsing. The NCAA said Tuesday that 12 Miami players must pay restitution and eight will not be allowed to play in the season-opener at Maryland because of things they accepted from former booster Nevin Shapiro, a convicted Ponzi scheme architect serving a 20-year prison sentence. Of the eight suspended players, five will return after a one-game absence. Two others will miss four games, and one will be sidelined for six contests. Were fighting through, Golden said. This was the first obstacle and I think were moving past that now and well deal with everything else that presents itself in the future. The penalties, while certainly serious, were far less than some predicted the Hurricanes would receive.

Will Lecanto Highs boys win another district title by fighting off Citrus and Pasco swimmers? Will Bill Wells find he has some genuine talent on the Crystal River High boys and girls teams and will this talent take the first year coach to the state meet? All these questions are waiting for answers as Citrus County high school swimming teams start their season this week. All swimmers and divers have the state swim meet as their Holy Grail? Who is worthy? Lecanto Girls Lecanto High girls coach Matt Bouthillier is pretty certain he has a strong state prospect in Anna Heinzman. She has already competed as a diver but may qualify as both a swimmer and diver. She swam but didnt dive, Bouthillier said. She is fired up about diving this year again. She should be the team leader. She is a senior. She will be getting a scholarship for swimming, diving or pole vaulting. She swims as a backstroker and freestyler. Kylie Sisk was second in diving at districts. She is a junior. Anabel Marchildon is a sophomore. She can do the IM, the breaststroke. She is strong across the board. She made it to the regionals last year. Every now and then a coach finds someone who just overachieves and leaves the coach with a Cheshire cat grin. One of the young ladies Im surprised with is Hayley Bottona, the coach said. She is a sophomore. She was a beginning swimmer last year. She swims the butterfly and freestyle. Lecanto has 20 girls. The coach has been there for five years and help is showing up in the form of an accomplished assistant coach. We have a new coach, Becky Harris, the coach said. She replaces Amber McLain, who retired last year. We are fortunate to get Becky. She swam at Virginia Military Institute, one of the first ladies to swim there. She also swam at Crystal River High School. Bouthillier isnt one for bold predictions. I really dont have a good vision for where we are going to land, he said. I am really still looking for us to find our competitive heart and push ourselves out of the comfort zone. I know we really have enough talent to be a good team. Im waiting for it to happen. Lecanto boys Bouthillier is more confident about Tamposi. We have one of the best swimmers in the state in Jake Tamposi, the coach said. He has two older brothers who are swimming in college. Jake has been to state every year, I think. Every expectation is he will go to state. He was the Chronicle Swimmer of the Year two years ago in 2009. He is a senior and will anchor the team. He is one of the hardest working athletes, most dedicated athletes you could ever have the pleasure of coaching. He can swim everything. He did mostly distance and breaststroke. Whatever I have to have him do, he will do with excellence. We have one other returning senior Andrew Chong. He is an outstanding all around swimmer. We have other talented swimmers. J.D.

In 2002, Steve Spurriers first season, the coach waited until the final exhibition was over to declare that Shane Matthews had won the starting quarterback job over Danny Wuerffel. Neither one had played well. Matthews came out on top despite throwing five interceptions in six quarters during the preseason. Its worth noting that Matthews, Wuerffel and Patrick Ramsey all ended up starting before the 7-9 season was over. Mike Shanahan is letting the race go down to the wire this year, but at least his charges have proved worthy of the competition. Both John Beck and Rex Grossman have played well. Any slip-up in the preseason finale Thursday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be decisive. Its very close, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said. They both have done a good job and had good numbers. When we review the tape, its pretty neckand-neck. The Buccaneers and Redskins are taking totally different approaches to the game that, under normal circumstances, is the most meaningless one on a teams NFL schedule. Tampa Bay coach Raheem Morris says his defensive starters will play absolutely not one snap against the Redskins. Quarterback Josh Freeman will sit out as well. Other starters will play sparingly, if at all. The only suspense from the Buccaneers standpoint concerns the players on the bubble, who get a final chance to earn a spot on the 53-man roster that will face the Detroit Lions in the Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO Federal prosecutors dropped all the remaining charges against Barry Bonds on Wednesday, days after a judge upheld the sluggers conviction on an obstruction of justice count.

I was most proud of the way the defense came together. We struggled a little bit with pass/receive in the third game and then they picked themselves up and started to play a better defense, Pirates head coach Mike Ridley said. Each team had won a game going into the Game 3 with Crystal River capitalizing on some execution errors on Lecantos end to win 2420 in Game 1 and Lecanto bouncing back after a slow start in the second game to win 25-23. In Game 3, the Pirates came back from a six-point deficit to take the lead at 13-12 with an ace from Casidy Newcomer. Lecanto tied it up two more times before a pair of back to back aces from Newcomer and team captain Ashley Allen brought Crystal River up by 4. Allen led the Pirates in kills with 7, while fellow captain Megan Unverdorben led in blocks with 7. I was telling them they were starting to play a little bit like they werent in charge and they needed to take charge again and be the aggressor, Ridley said of his 25-22 Game 3 victory. Crystal River took off running in the crucial fourth game, taking an early 8-3 lead with the help of defensive players Cheyenne Phelps and Emily Laga, who had 17 and 16 digs respectively overall. Lecanto fought back on a 7-0 run, taking the lead for a moment before stalling mid-game, eventually losing 25-15. Lecanto head coach Emily Merritt said the key issue for the Panthers to work on going into their next game, against West Port September 7, is communication. The ladies can move they just need to learn how to talk to each other and keep moving to the ball, Merritt said. Crystal River plays at Citrus, who won their first game after going 0-25 last year, Thursday night at 6:30. Roddick survives; Bryan brothers ousted Feds wont pursue Bonds
E very once in a while, the ecology (God, Mother Nature, pick one youre comfortable with) slaps us upside the head and demonstrates there are places where structures dont belong, and we should know better; along the Gulf and the US east coast, its barrier islands. Those who pay attention to history and to the way the ecology works know if we place a structure on a barrier island, its going to go bye-bye, sooner or later. Without minimizing the human suffering, loss of life and property damage brought about by hurricanes, even far inland, the fact is much of that could be reduced, in many cases eliminated. Barrier islands serve a purpose; to absorb the destructive waves and surge from major storms, including those that dont reach hurricane strength, or those, like Irene, only Category One storms. Even as Irene was dropping more water on New England than the alreadysaturated ground could absorb, people farther south were doing what Americans have always done, showing the resilience and compassion that will help them get through tragic circumstances, and rebuild their lives. It will be costly, theres no question about that. Although Irene was a minimal hurricane, it was huge, hundreds of miles across, and took a long time to pass a given point, dropping rain all the while. Had she been minimal in size as well as velocity, there wouldnt have been nearly as much damage; but, she wasnt. Short term, power has to be restored, roads cleared, bridges repaired or replaced, food and water brought in, as well as medical teams and facilities to support local hospitals and medical staff. Be assured that, once all the immediate concerns have been addressed, there will be calls for beach replenishment, to replace sand washed away by Irene. Its a perfect example of an exercise in futility, a temporary solution, and a huge waste of tax dollars, but it will be done, it always is; and people will rebuild. Theyll rebuild on those same barrier islands, wait for the next storm, and hope against hope it wont all be washed away again. There are those who feel government is the solution to all problems. Im not one of them, but there is one thing government, from local townships to the feds, could do to save us from ourselves, and that is to prevent permanent structures on barrier islands, except in certain very limited circumstances. Its a tough call, one that requires doing The Right Thing even if it means reduced campaign funds, but dont hold your breath. That would save lives and drastically reduce property damage, but definitely not garner votes. Whats more important, the lives of constituents, or their votes? * I devoted a fair number of pages in my book on fishing inshore Florida to the importance of knowing your quarry; the habitat it likes, the food it prefers, feeding habits including tidal preferences, and so on because I believe it can often be the difference between hookups and a day of casting practice. This was illustrated on a recent trip by Captain William Toney and two other guides from the Homosassa Guides Association with six members of the Atlanta Fishing Club. The Georgia boys brought 53 redfish to the boats in two days, fishing around mangrove islands off Homosassa and Ozello. In heading north, Irene had sucked warm air with her, creating strong southwest winds, which in turn pushed water on our local incoming tides farther into shore than normal. Knowing the redfish would follow that extra water deeper into the mangroves than theyd been in months, Toney scouted the shorelines, and finally spotted a red peeking out from beneath an overhanging mangrove branch on the back side of a key. I cast a root beer holographic D.O.A. shrimp just up current from the fish, he said in an e-mail, and as the shrimp drifted into the reds zone, he ate it. Toney set the hook and watched, knowing reds like to hang out in schools, and, sure enough, five others came out from the overhang and swam with the hooked fish, hoping for a scrap from whatever it was eating. Toney had one of his clients quickly cast a bait into the group, resulting in an instant hookup. We did the redfish boogie for a minute or two, Toney continued, then finally boated the fish, both at the upper end of the slot. Knowing reds follow the incoming tide onto the flats, and knowing the extra wind-driven water would give the reds access to the crabs, small fish and other morsels normally protected by shallow water and impenetrable roots put Toney and his clients in position for a hookup, and knowing reds in the slot are seldom loners had him on the lookout for more. It pays to know your quarry. Tight Lines to you. 990 N. Suncoast Blvd., Crystal River (352) 795-2597 (352) 795-2598 Email: email@example.com 9070 W. Ft.

Tide charts I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Sam Overton, Sr. a couple of weeks ago. The wiry senior from Baton Rouge, La had just gotten off the water following a 1/2-day bass fishing trip with professional, fishing guide Keith Austin on the Withlacoochee River near Dunnellon. As I ate lunch at the Cajun ordered a cold one and pulled up a chair. I got the distinct impression he had never met a stranger. But his warm smile and distinct Louisiana dialect were inviting. Plus, he told a great story. Memories from the mornings fishing adventure were relived over his brew. Then the stories turned from those memories just hours old to recollections from decades past. Ive been fishing the Withlacoochee River for 27 years, Overton said. As he fumbled with his cell phone it was obvious to me he wanted me to see a photo that he had stored. When he found what he was looking for he pushed the phone my way. The small, dark cell phone picture revealed an image of a wall in his Baton Rouge home. On that wall were numerous giant, largemouth bass proudly displayed. He pointed to one in particular, I caught that one with the Honorable Mr. Buck Bray, he said almost reverently. I thought to myself Buck Bray now thats a name that hasnt crossed my mind in years. Those folks who havent called Citrus or south Marion County home for any length of time will probably not know that name. But some old timers will. Bray was a legendary bass guide going back to the Withlacoochee Rivers hay days in the 70s, perhaps even earlier. Before M ickey Mouse attracted millions of visitors each year to Central Florida a more natural attraction drew people to this part of the world largemouth bass. To be sure Bray spent thousands of days mining waters along the Withlacoochee River, Lake Rousseau, the Tsala Apopka Chain of Lakes and Lake Pannasoffkee in Sumter County. When I moved here in 1982 Buck was the number one guide anywhere around, recalled fishing guide Keith Austin. Buck wasnt a flashy guy or anything. He had modest equipment but boy did he catch a lot of big bass. He gave me my very first paid, guide trip of my career, Austin said Tuesday afternoon. He had too many people to fit on his boat so he hired me to take out the others. We left out of Anglers Resort that morning. There were other guides besides Austin that Bray helped along in their careers. Men like Fred London, Tommy Evans and Chuck Hall to name a few. They became the next generation of guides that benefited from Brays knowledge and experience. Austin tapped some memories about Bray that were most likely thoughts that hadnt been dusted off in years. You would never find ole Buck fishing without his pipe, he said about the white-haired fisherman. And if you heard a .38 Special fired off in the distance sometime during the day you could bet one of Bucks clients had caught a mudfish, he said. He was always fair to me and I learned things from him that I still use today. Buck was a military guy and he was very regimented, Austin recalled. He would pull up to a spot and anchor off both ends of his boat and soak those shiners for hours at a time. He might only fish a few spots in a days fishing time. One technique Austin said he learned from Bray was how to properly fish a golden shiner under matted vegetation. Thats probably one of the most sure-fire ways to catch a giant bass short of using dynamite. Austin recalls Bray becoming fast friends with Dick Williams, the man who purchased Anglers Resort in 1978. From that point Bray used the fish camp as his home base, the same as Austin does today. One of the other odd things that Buck would do was he wouldnt start fishing until 8 a.m. He had an alarm clock in his boat and at eight oclock he started. The first thing he would do was to go and catch his own wild, golden shiners. The clients really seemed to like that part of the trip, he said. There were many more shiners back then and it didnt take long to catch three dozen or so. With the bait secured he would hit the river searching for trophy bass. And at 5 p.m., when that alarm clock went off, it was quitting time. Austin said, It didnt matter if there were 10-pounders schooling at the side of the boat. When that alarm went off he went to the dock, Austin remembered. Buck Bray lost a short battle with cancer in the early 1990s but left lasting impressions with literally thousands of clients along the way. He was truly a gentle man. Sam Overton finished his beer and then ordered another as he sat in the shade overlooking toward the dark water that is the Withlacoochee River. His story then turned to his wife who passed away some time back. He recounted how she would come on the fishing excursions with him and loved to fish as much as he does. But to her there was one added bonus to their visit, She sure loved that old Buck Bray, she really did.

The rest of the roster is holding up quite nicely, too. Wilson Betemit capped Detroits three-run eighth inning with a tiebreaking RBI double against his former team, leading the Tigers to a 5-4 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday. Betemits big hit came less than 18 hours after reserve Ramon Santiago delivered a game-ending homer in the 10th inning. People wonder why I play so many different lineups, but thats what you have to do when you want to win a division, Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. You dont win unless you get contributions from everyone, and you have to play them so that they are ready to make a play when you need them. Austin Jackson went 4 for 4 and scored three times for the AL Central-leading Tigers.

Giants 4, Cubs 0 SAN FRANCISCO Madison Bumgarner matched his career high with 11 strikeouts, Jeff Keppinger and Pablo Sandoval hit consecutive homers in the fourth inning, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Chicago Cubs 4-0 on Wednesday to snap a three-game skid and avoid a sweep. On a day when general manager Brian Sabean began making big changes to the struggling World Series champions, Bumgarner (9-12) was brilliant when his team desperately needed a boost. Keppinger also drove in a run with a bloop single in the fifth off Rodrigo Lopez (4-6), who lost his third straight outing and dropped to 0-5 in eight career starts against San Francisco. San Francisco began the day a season-high six games behind NL West-leading Arizona, which was hosting Colorado on Wednesday night. Blue Jays 13, Orioles 0 BALTIMORE Henderson Alvarez walked off the field after eight sparkling innings, and Toronto acting manager Don Wakamatsu offered the righthander the best compliment the rookie could hear. Wakamatsu compared the 21-year-old to 2010 Cy Young winner Felix Hernandez, who comes from the same city in Venezuela as Alvarez. Alvarez became the youngest Blue Jays starter to win a game since 1979, Jose Bautista led a four-homer attack with his 39th of the season, and Toronto beat the Baltimore Orioles 13-0 Wednesday night. Alvarez (1-2) faced the minimum 21 batters through seven innings. Ryan Adams lined a clean single to center in the third and was immediately wiped out by a double play. Matt Angle reached on an error in the seventh before Jake Fox bounced into a double play. In the eighth, Vladimir Guerrero and Robert Andino singled before Alvarez worked out of trouble.

Happ allowed three hits and struck out six over seven innings and the Houston Astros beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-0 on Wednesday night for a sweep of the three-game series. Despite having the worst record in baseball (47-90), the Astros have won five of their last seven overall and seven of their last eight at home. Houstons other sweep this season was against the Chicago Cubs May 30-June 1. Happ (5-15) had his second strong outing since returning from Triple-A Oklahoma City. He didnt allow a runner past first base and walked one. It was Happs first major league victory since July 19. James McDonald (8-7) had won five of his previous seven decisions. He pitched six innings, allowed seven hits, two walks and struck out six. In the fourth inning the Astros pieced together two runs on a groundout and an infield hit.

Cardinals 8, Brewers 3MILWAUKEE Cardinals starter Jake Westbrook hit a grand slam to lead St. Louis to an 8-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night. Rafael Furcal and Albert Pujols added solo homers as the Cardinals won their fifth in six games to cut the first-place Brewers lead to 8 games in the NL Central. The win guaranteed Milwaukee will lose its first series at home since Arizona took two of three at Miller Park July 4-6. Furcal led off the game with a blast and Pujols followed two batters later with his NL-leading 32nd homer. Westbrook (11-7) tossed five innings, and his slam in the fourth gave St. Louis a 6-2 lead. Corey Hart homered to start the game for Milwaukee, but Ryan Braun fell halfway down the third-base line. Phillies 3, Reds 0 CINCINNATI Cliff Lee wanted one more out. Instead, the dominating left-hander had to settle for the biggest share of another shutout, one that swept the Philadelphia Phillies to new heights. Lee got his sixth straight win on Wednesday night, coming up one out short of another complete game, and Hunter Pence homered for the second straight game, setting up a 3-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds that gave the NL East leaders another big number. They are 40 games over .500 for the first time this season, holding the majors best record at 86-46. And theres no wonder why. The Phillies lead the majors with 19 shutouts. I didnt know we have 19 shutouts, Lee said. I know weve got good pitching and any day were capable of going out and shutting down another offense. They have blanked the Reds the last two games and allowed a total of two runs and 16 hits while taking the first three games of the series.

Rays 4, Rangers 1 ARLINGTON, Texas James Shields pitched eight shutout innings, Johnny Damon homered and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the AL West-leading Texas Rangers 4-1 on Wednesday night. Shields (13-10) allowed four hits, walked one and struck out seven, giving him 1,001 for his career. He threw 110 pitches before Kyle Farnsworth finished Tampa Bays 10th victory in the last 15 games. David Murphy hit a two-out RBI single for Texas in the ninth, but Farnsworth struck out Yorvit Torrealba to end the game. Shields escaped a basesloaded jam in the first when Mike Napoli grounded into a double play. The right-hander then retired the next 14 batters, a streak that ended when Elvis Andrus tripled with two out in the sixth. No big deal Shields promptly struck out Josh Hamilton to end the inning, leaving Andrus on third. Shields had struggled in his three previous starts at Rangers Ballpark, going 1-2 with a 5.14 ERA while yielding 22 hits and five homers. Red Sox 9, Yankees 5BOSTON Jacoby Ellsbury hit a tie-breaking two-run homer in the sixth inning, Josh Beckett improved to 4-0 against the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox came from behind for a 9-5 win on Wednesday night. The Red Sox, who lost the series opener 5-2 on Tuesday night, extended their AL East lead over the Yankees to 1 games and improved their record to 11-3 this season against their division rivals. David Ortiz and Jason Varitek also hit two-run homers for Boston. The Yankees scored four runs in the sixth off Beckett (125) the same amount they managed in his other 32 innings against them this season and went ahead 5-4. In the bottom of the inning, Phil Hughes (4-5) retired the first batter. Then he went ahead of Josh Reddick 0-2 before walking him, and Reddick scored the tying run on Variteks double. After Marco Scutaro flied out, left-hander Boone Logan came in to face lefty Ellsbury.

Mets 3, Marlins 2 NEW YORK Lucas Duda hit a tiebreaking single in the seventh inning and the New York Mets rallied to beat the Florida Marlins 3-2 on Wednesday night. Jason Bay had three hits, including the tying single, and David Wright hit two long doubles high off the wall in left field for the Mets, who have won five of six. The third baseman also made a diving stop on Omar Infantes hot grounder for the second out of the ninth before Bobby Parnell got his third save in five chances. Jose Reyes kicked off the Mets seventh with a single up the middle that squirted between shortstop Emilio Bonifacio and second baseman Omar Infante when both pulled up to avoid a collision. He moved to second on Ruben Tejadas sacrifice and scored easily when Duda hit a full-count pitch from Mike Dunn up the middle.

Braves 3, Nationals 1 ATLANTA Chipper Jones had bad news for Derek Lowe after the pitcher hit his first career homer. He has got a few more to go before he catches me, Jones said with a laugh. Two milestone home runs Jones 450th and Lowes first gave Atlanta the early lead and Lowe combined with three relievers on a three-hitter as the Braves beat the Washington Nationals 3-1 on Wednesday night. Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth for his 41st save, setting a major league rookie record. Ian Desmonds singles in the first and third innings were the only hits allowed by Lowe (912) until Michael Morse led off the seventh with a homer. Lowe said his first homer was fun but he was more excited about his work on the mound. I take the pitching first, obviously, Lowe said after giving up one run, three hits and two walks in six-plus innings. Twins 7, White Sox 6CHICAGO Jake Peavys one bad inning was enough to send the Chicago White Sox to a costly loss. Jason Kubel and Luke Hughes homered during Minnesotas six-run first inning, and the Twins snapped Chicagos five-game winning streak with a 7-6 victory on Wednesday. It was rough first inning, White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said. I thought it was going to be a little bit worse than that. Kubel and Hughes each hit a two-run shot off Peavy (6-7), who allowed four consecutive extra-base hits during his rocky beginning. Trevor Plouffe, Joe Mauer and Michael Cuddyer hit three straight doubles to plate the first two runs. The White Sox fell six games back of the AL Central-leading Tigers, who rallied for a 5-4 victory over Kansas City.

wanted to portray that theres a huge wave of American players, Falconi explained when asked why she pulled out the flag she keeps in her bag. I strongly believe in all that is USA, and I wanted to represent it and show the world that its coming. Its coming. No need to wait any longer. McHale, a 19-year-old from Englewood Cliffs, N.J., delivered a 7-6 (2), 6-2 victory over eighth-seeded Marion Bartoli of France, the runner-up to Venus Williams at Wimbledon in 2007. Falconi, a 21-year-old who went to Georgia Tech, followed that up by beating 14th-seeded Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia 2-6, 6-3, 7-5. I think theres a lot of American players young American players right now that are all kind of pushing each other. So I think its exciting, said McHale, who knocked off top-ranked Caroline Wozniacki at hardcourt tuneup tournament in Cincinnati in August. We all push each other to want to do better, McHale. On Wednesday night, 2003 U.S. Open champion Andy Roddick beat 96th-ranked Michael Russell 6-2, 6-4, 4-6, 7-5 in all-American firstround match. Enduring a rough season filled with injuries, No. 21 Roddick dropped out of the top 20 in the rankings for the first time in a decade. His victory was to be followed by the days last match: 2006 U.S. Open champion Maria Sharapova against Anastasia Yakimova. McHale next meets No. 25 Maria Kirilenko of Russia, while Falconi will play No. 22 Sabine Lisicki of Belgium. Lisicki, a Wimbledon semifinalist, was supposed to play Venus Williams but got a pass into the third round. Lisicki said she saw Williams on the practice courts and in the locker room and expected to play their match until the tournament referee passed along the news of the withdrawal. Shes a tough girl, and I think shell come back. You know, it would be unfortunate if she couldnt, Lisicki said. Serena and Venus both are amazing players, and its nice to have them in the womens sport. I hope she comes back. McHale and Falconi both advanced to the third round at a Grand Slam tournament for the first time. Falconi ended her match in style and unbridled exuberance running way wide of the court and nearly stumbling into a changeover chair to get to a ball that she whipped back for a crosscourt forehand winner. She hopped in the air and pumped her left fist, then bounded onto the court yelling, Come on! Come on! Yet another and even younger U.S. player almost joined them. But 16year-old Madison Keys of Boca Raton, Fla., couldnt quite pull it off, wasting a big lead and losing to 27thseeded Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic 3-6, 7-5, 6-4. Among Wednesdays other winners were U.S. men John Isner, Jack Sock, Robbie Ginepri and Alex Bogomolov Jr., along with 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina, who didnt try to defend his title last year because of a wrist injury. Two-time French Open semifinalist Robin Soderling of Sweden, meanwhile, pulled out shortly before his first-round match Wednesday, citing stomach pain and a headache. No. 4 Andy Murray and No. 12 Gilles Simon advanced, while No. 10 Nicolas Almagro became the highest-seeded man to lose. Womens winners included No. 2 Vera Zvonareva, the runner-up at the U.S. Open and Wimbledon in 2010, and No. 9 Sam Stosur, who reached last years French Open final. Williams departure added to the list of past Grand Slam champions who are gone early from the U.S. Open. Kim Clijsters, the winner at Flushing Meadows in 2009 and 2010, pulled out weeks ago, citing a stomach muscle injury; this years champions at Wimbledon (Petra Kvitova) and the French Open (Li Na) lost in the first round. Williams arrived at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on Wednesday hours before her match was scheduled to begin and tried warming up by hitting balls. All of us came with the full expectation shed be playing today. She was geared up to play her match, said Williams agent, Carlos Fleming. I just hope shes OK, Fleming added, and I hope shes healthy and going to be fine. season opener on Sept. 11. Were stacking the bottom of our roster in Washington, Morris said. After we get the bottom of our roster stacked and our team put together and our practice squad filled out, then the coaches will already be ready to deal with Detroit and moving on to what well be going to do in Week 1. Mike Shanahan took that approach last year. The Redskins sat all 22 starters for the final exhibition game and gave them a head start studying the Week 1 opponent. For 2011, hes done a 180. He feels his starters need the extra work to make up for the lost offseason practices caused by the NFL lockout. Hes treating this week the same as last week as another dress rehearsal for all. Its different than usual, Kyle Shanahan said. Its the fourth preseason game, and we have not been playing football that long. The more playing time (for starters) is where I think it changes a little bit. Plus, theres that quarterback competition to decide. The entire team is anxious to know the outcome, although its a story line theyre happy to follow. After all, this time last year the team was dealing with something more disconcerting the various misadventures of Albert Haynesworth. We had plenty of drama last year, receiver Anthony Armstrong said, so trying to figure out whos our quarterback is, is really not too much. But itll be good to know. players would miss the entire season. Because the school and the NCAA were jointly investigating Shapiros claims and promised each other to remain quiet about specifics Golden had to restrain himself from shooting down the report. From that standpoint, I felt helpless to defend these young people, Golden said. Still, the decisions unveiled Tuesday are only the first step in what promises to be a long process. The NCAA is still looking into Miamis compliance practices, and further sanctions when the investigation is complete seem quite likely. The fact-finding process will continue, even while Golden tries to turn Miami back into a title-contending program. If this can be done, said Penn States Joe Paterno, Goldens college coach and longtime mentor, Al will get it done. Funny, just about everyone says that now. Few people thought that to be the case five years ago. Golden interviewed for the Temple job in 2006, one day after Virginia he was the Cavaliers defensive coordinator beat the Owls 51-3. Golden met with Temple athletic director Bill Bradshaw, who had already talked to some candidates and was on his way to talk to more, even though he quickly realized any further interviews were pretty much a waste of time. About 15 minutes into our initial interview with him, at a cramped hotel room in Charlottesville, I wrote on a legal pad: This is our guy, Bradshaw said in a telephone interview. That impressive he was. That precise he was. Temple had been forced out of the Big East and then went 0-11 in 2005. Players didnt want to lift weights or watch film, figuring well, knowing that they had no chance to win anyway. The schools Academic Progress Rate scores were awful and as a result the Owls could only offer 54 scholarships, 31 less than most schools. Golden decided to seize the opportunity, when others winced at the notion. What he did was monumental, said former New York Jets standout Joe Klecko, a Temple alum. Whether anybody else could have done that, I dont know. I know theres a lot of great coaches out there. But when Al Golden was there, I have to admit, Ive never seen more efficiently run practices in my life. And Ive been around football a few years. He had everything. Ive never seen anybody so well organized. Temple won 17 games over the past two seasons under Golden. The program has never been stronger. Even now, months after Golden left Philadelphia for Miami, Bradshaw insists that his former coach has built the Owls to last. hormone from trainer Greg Anderson, and that no one other than his doctors ever injected him with anything. Assistant U.S. Attorney Matt Parrella declined comment. Bonds lawyer, Allen Ruby, said that his clients legal team was focused on the sluggers sentencing hearing in December. Ruby declined to discuss whether Bonds intended to appeal the obstruction conviction. Bonds was among the biggest stars convicted as a result of an investigation into the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO) steroids ring, a probe headed by federal agent Jeff Novitzky that also ensnared Olympic gold medal-winning track star Marion Jones. Bonds was initially charged in November 2007 with lying to the grand jury during a December 2003 appearance when he testified that his personal trainer misled him into believing the designer steroids and performance enhancing drugs he was taking were legal supplements. A majority of jurors this year voted to acquit him on charges he lied when he denied knowingly taking steroids and human growth hormone. The jurors voted 11-1 to convict him for denying that anyone other than his doctor ever injected him. Bonds faces a maximum of 10 years in prison, though federal guidelines recommend a sentence of 15 to 21 months. Illston, who upheld the obstruction count last Friday, also is free to impose a lesser sentence, which she did after two previous trials involving a champion cyclist and track coach each convicted of lying in cases that grew out of the BALCO probe. Cyclist Tammy Thomas and track coach Trevor Graham each received sentences of house arrest. Bonds, Thomas and Graham were the only three BALCO figures who pleaded not guilty and went to trial on charges of lying about performance enhancing drugs. Prosecutors on Wednesday dismissed the counts without prejudice, meaning they could reinstate the charges before the statute of limitations expires. However, thats a routine legal maneuver when dismissing criminal charges and dropped cases are rarely reinstated. Attorney William Keane, who represented Graham, said its highly unlikely prosecutors will reinstate the charges, and that he expects Bonds wont go to prison even though prosecutors are expected to argue for that. Lecanto has 20 boys. Bouthillier feels good about his boys. To be a good team, it is about every athlete contributing, he said. We are a team. Every year, we have been district champions or runners-up. We were district champions last year. We always have the bar set high. Our guys have lost one meet in four years. We know the bar is high. We have to hold it high for ourselves. We know we have to work hard. We dont want to take anything for granted. We want to work extra hard. Lecanto is in Class 2ADistrict 5. The boys won it last year. The girls were third. Citrus and Crystal River are also in the district. The district also includes teams from Pasco County like Land O Lakes, Mitchell, Wiregrass Ranch, River Ridge Gulf, Anclote and Sunlake. Hernando and Nature Coast are in Hernando County. Citrus Girls Coach Jennifer Pineau is in her second year at Citrus High School. She has 19 girls on the team and several have real potential. We have some from last year, she said. This year, they are showing a lot of promise. Amanda Poliseno, a senior, is a favorite to advance to regionals. She is a freestyler and is a team cocaptain. Hanna Poss, a senior, is a breaststroker and is also a co-captain. Brenna Willette, is a breaststroker. We have diamonds in the rough. Our team is so small. Holly Foster is the other coach. Pineau and Foster both swam at Citrus High School and both graduated in 1993. Our top swimmers could all get to regionals, Pineau said. I kinow that the girls drive and passion is very exciting. I would not be surprised if some surprise me. Citrus Boys We have two captains. Joel Kiddy, a senior freestyle, said Pineau. He can go as far as he wants to. He is a shining star. Donnie Lynn, a senior. He is a freestyle and backstroker. They are on all the relays with Randy Lynn, a junior and Taylor Abernathy, a senior. I am feeling that right now our relay teams will be our best, the coach said. Everyone of our swimmers is doing very well in their own way. We have 13 boys. Its one of the smallest teams we have had in quite a long time. Theres a bond with them that is incredible. Small can have its benefits. I am expecting a lot of swimmers to beat their best times, many to move on to regionals and hopeful of a few moving to state. Crystal River girls Bill Wells became the new coach just three weeks ago. He replaced Cliff Dyer. Wells came from Lawton Chiles High School in Leon County. He has coached for 20 years. He was retired and he has unretired to handle the swimmers. A familiar face from the past will rejoin the Pirates. Sandy Counts is back as an assistant coach. She has spent years as an assistant coach. She is recovering from a knee wound She had her knee replaced. She used to coach with Tim Holmes. Candacie Schrader is the diving coach. Jordan Collins, a freshman, has been swimming club. She is a middle and sprint freestyler. She is also a good backstroker. He has 15 girls. This is going to be a building year, Wells said. Im learning about their best events. Marissa Penn, junior, is a good leader and hard worker. She has some ability, Wells said. She is a middle to sprint freestyler and breaststroke. Abby Brown is a 500 freestyler. She broke a team record in the 500 last year. We have some talent and leadership, Wells said. We are going to work hard. We will do the best we can at the end of the year. Crystal River boys Wells has young talent on the boys team. Dylan Earnheart is a freshman and swam last summer. He was in the Junior Olympics. We are expecting good things from him, said the coach. He is best at 100 fly, Hunter Earnheart is a junior. Reece Sisto is a sophomore. He is a pretty good all around swimmer, according to the coach. Michael Martinez is a sophomore diver. Blake Davis is a sophomore diver. Crystal River has 15 boys. The Pirates best days may be a year or two down the road. This is a rebuilding year, Wells said. I am hoping to make it a good year for those individuals.

By this time next year, Texas A&M may have said goodbye to a lot more than its storied, century-old rivalry with Texas. Texas A&M announced Wednesday that it will leave the Big 12 Conference by July 2012 if it can find another home, preferably in the Southeastern Conference. The decision could set off another round of conference realignment in college sports and it raises questions about the future of the Big 12, which is starting the football season with 10 teams after losing Nebraska and Colorado. The Big 12 said it would move quickly to find at least one replacement for the Aggies but offered no timeline. The presidents and chancellors of the nine remaining member institutions are steadfast in their commitment to the Big 12, Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe said in a statement. As previously stated, the conference will move forward aggressively exploring its membership options. The Southeastern Conference said it hadnt received an application from Texas A&M to join the league and that it would have no further comment. The SEC has reaffirmed its 12-school membership, but remains open to expansion talks. Leaving the Big 12 is in the best interest of Texas A&M, said university President R. Bowen Loftin, who formally notified the league with a letter after earlier securing details on the withdrawal process. He said he hopes the move can be amicable and presumably hopes to negotiate a reasonable exit fee. We are seeking to generate greater visibility nationwide for Texas A&M and our championship-caliber student-athletes, as well as secure the necessary and stable financial resources to support our athletic and academic programs, Loftin said. This is a 100-year decision that we have addressed carefully and methodically. Texas A&M, which has been in the Big 12 since its founding in 1996, said it will submit an application to join another, unspecified conference. If accepted, Texas A&M will leave the Big 12, effective June 30, 2012. Texas, blamed by some for running off Nebraska with its deal with ESPN to set up its Longhorns Network, said it remains committed to the Big 12 even with its historic rivalry with Texas A&M in jeopardy. But Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds didnt address the game or even A&M by name.
Associated PressMONTGOMERY, Ala. Even the mighty Southeastern Conference is working harder to coax fans out of their living rooms and into stadiums. Despite winning the last five national championships fans around the college football-crazed region are weighing the couch and flat-screen TV option vs. the in-person game experience, tailgating at a raucous stadium. Nearly every SEC football game is televised so some fans are choosing to stay home especially for potentially ugly nonconference mismatches. All but eight games last season were televised beyond pay-per-view. The lounge chair and big-screen TV are the best seat in the house, insists Alabama fan Shane Roberson, who lives in Destin, Fla,. and has held season tickets since 2005. Even opening matchups like Alabama-Kent State and Elon-Vanderbilt are only a click of the remote away, at least for fans in the nine-state region. Missouri State-Arkansas and Montana-Tennessee are available online or by pay-per-view. Since SEC teams have counted tickets sold rather than actual attendance, theres no way to gauge the count of ticket-bearing fans either visitors or home who take the homebody route. The league touts that stadiums were collectively 98.5 percent filled last season. Nonetheless, there are enough empty seats for it to be a topic of discussion in football offices. I say all the time, Hey, were competing against hidef, Auburn associate athletic director Scott Carr said. Its reality. There is no comparison to actually being there and having the opportunity to tailgate with your friends and relatives. You cant replace that sitting on a couch with hi-def television, but it certainly can provide one more reason not to come. The stagnant economy also helps to make the lounge chair a more appealing option. Tennessee fan Joe Stanley grew up in north Georgia attending games; now the IT project manager who lives just outside the Arkansas state line in Missouri said cost of tickets and travel has kept him home most fall Saturdays. He and his wife plan to go to one Vols home game and two games at Arkansas, about 30 minutes from his home. Fans are still looking at $160 just to go to a local game, Stanley said. It makes it a no-brainer situation I can spend $160 (on cable or satellite) to see every game without dealing with the crowd and the nonsense. Carr said it has taken a little longer to sell out season tickets in recent years, saying he thinks it was initially percent economy, 2 percent TV. Now that the TV things out there, I would say TV is probably more of a factor today than it was when it first came out, Carr said. Auburn had two home games that werent listed as sellouts during its national championship run last season. The precursor to the SEC title game matchup with South Carolina was a couple hundred shy. Of the 85 SEC home games last year, 36 were not sellouts. Sure, teams like Alabama, LSU and Florida have little or no trouble unloading season tickets in a league that has four of college footballs eight biggest stadiums. Those three members of the recent national title club, along with Georgia, reported sellouts for all 27 home games in 2010. Its often a case of the rich, well, staying rich. Florida and LSU said they exceeded their stadiums listed capacities in every home game. Struggling teams like Vanderbilt, Mississippi and Tennessee combined for just three sellouts. At Georgia, everyone who contributed $250 to the Hartman Fund got season tickets for this season, associate athletic director Alan Thomas said. He said that number the threshold based on the lowest amount paid was about $2,000 last year, and that was a fifth of the 2008 figure. Tennessee will have an actual count of fans filing into 102,451-seat Neyland Stadium in 2011 after putting bar codes on its tickets. The Volunteers started reaching out to fans in July who have had tickets in the past or have some kind of connection or affiliation with the university, including threefigure donors that might otherwise not have gotten a personal touch, said Chris Fuller, an associate athletic director at Tennessee. He said that seven-week phone effort netted 2,200 season ticket sales and brought in about $1 million. I think live attendance is a big-time topic not only in college athletics now but across the board, said Fuller, formerly a vice president for the NBAs Cleveland Cavaliers. Everybody talks about discretionary income is a factor. I think discretionary time is a big-time factor with everybodys modern schedule. When you host 41 games (in the NBA), I can tell you that its a big factor, but I think even when you host eight football games its a factor too. I think live attendance at sporting events is a big topic in our industry in general. SEC Commissioner Mike Slive acknowledges that the megabucks TV contracts with ESPN and CBS present a balancing act of exposure for the league and making sure that our fans come to the stadium. Schools are also working to cut out some of the hassle when there are 100,000 people in one place. Auburn hired the Disney Institute for a daylong session on customer service this summer for 35-40 staffers in hopes of enhancing fans game day experience, Carr said. Still, the comforts of home have become a formidable opponent for the SEC. At Alabama, Roberson holds onto his tickets even if he might only make it to one or two games now that he has two young daughters. Theres some 20,000 fans on the waiting list to snap them up if he doesnt. James Evans, an Auburn fan living in Charleston, S.C., said he goes to fewer games nowadays because so many are on TV. He made the 7-hour trek for the first South Carolina game last season and plans to attend the SEC title game rematch in Columbia this season. He mostly watches games at a restaurant with other members of the local Auburn club. Its just so convenient, you can sit there at table with giant-screen television surrounded by fans of just your school, the emergency room technician said. The added bonus: Theyll bring you your chicken wings and theyll bring you your drinks. Associated PressCollege footballs most debated team has another referendum game. No. 5 Boise State begins a second straight season playing across the country on a field that is neutral only in name. But this time the stakes are raised a bit. This time the Broncos are venturing into Southeastern Conference territory. As impressive as Boise States 33-30 victory against Virginia Tech at FedEx Field in Maryland was last season, Kellen Moore and the Broncos have a chance to bolster their credibility even more Saturday in Atlanta against No. 19 Georgia. The Boise State debate breaks down like this. Pro-Boise: Coach Chris Petersens team can compete and even beat any team in the country if given the opportunity. (See Fiesta Bowl victories against Oklahoma and TCU, plus that victory against Virginia Tech). A relatively weak conference schedule should not preclude the Broncos from playing for a national championship if they go undefeated. Anti-Boise: Playing in the Western Athletic Conference, the Broncos only faced a few teams per season that were their equals. Moving to the Mountain West Conference this season only provides Boise State with a touch more competition. Because the Broncos strength of schedule lags well behind the teams that play in the SEC, Big Ten, Pac-12, etc., Boise State cannot possibly be considered a national championship contender. (Note: Often this argument leads to screaming and/or tweeting in all capital letters and, ultimately, language not suitable for youngsters). SEC fans seem to get the most riled up by Boise State being included among the nations elite programs. The last time Boise State played an SEC team was 2005, when the Broncos were blasted by the Bulldogs 48-13 in Athens.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES The good news for Hollywood: summer movie revenues are up worldwide as studios rebounded from a dismally slow start to the year. The bad news: Domestically, revenues rose only a fraction compared to the previous years, while actual movie attendance dropped for the fourth straight year. Taken together, the summers of 2010 and 2011 combined for the smallest domestic audiences since the summers of 1997-98. Since peaking at a modern high of 653 million tickets sold in summer 2002, domestic attendance has wavered generally downward, dipping to 551 million in summer 2010 and sliding again this summer to 543 million, according to projections from box-office tracker Hollywood.com. One so-so summer can be an aberration, when the movies simply failed to grab fans. Two so-so summers in a row are a sign of the tough task studios face to keep butts in theater seats at a time when audiences have more entertainment options than ever. One down summer you could lay at the doorstep of a lack of quality films, audience indifference, whatever. But more than one or two years becomes a trend, and were seeing this downward trend in attendance, said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. Emerging technology combined with an audience that is trying to figure out how they want to consume their entertainment is creating this situation. Making matters worse, Hollywood took a weather hit last weekend, with business down steeply because many East Coast theaters closed to ride out Hurricane Irene. Many in Hollywood expected summer 2011 to be a knock-it-out-of-the-park season. The summer was jammed with superhero sagas, huge animated sequels and action franchises that studio executives predicted would quickly lift the industry out of a deep rut after the year began with a weak run of movies. Summer did erase most of this years deficit on revenues, which back in spring had been running as much as 20 percent behind last years. According to Hollywood.com, domestic receipts from the first weekend in May through Labor Day weekend should finish at a record $4.38 billion, up 0.7 percent from summer 2010. But factoring in this years higher ticket prices, actual attendance will be down 1.4 percent. Studio executives get defensive comparing this year to last, saying the early part of 2010 made for an unfair contrast because blockbusters such as Avatar and Alice in Wonderland were keeping theaters jammed. Hollywoods summer story: more dollars, fewer fans Birthday: Excellent influences will be working on your behalf in the year ahead, trying to improve your material position in life. You must chip in and help things along, however. The more you do, the more your needs will be met. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) The funds that will enable you to get something that youve wanted for a long time but always felt was too expensive are apt to finally become available. With the extra cash in your pocket, you can go for it. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Whether or not you realize it, your influence over your peer group is stronger than you think. Others will be easily swayed by the example you set, and theyll want to emulate your behavior. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Keep a matter that is of a sensitive, secretive nature between yourself and closely involved parties. For best results in resolving the matter, you need to maintain its exclusivity. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) When a close friend tells you something in confidence, he or she might leave it to your discretion as to whether or not another pal should be let in on the secret. Choose wisely. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) A material desire could end up functioning as a powerful motivator for you. If you really want something badly enough, you will be capable of figuring out how to acquire it. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Its more important for you to take a long-range view of things where your self-interests are concerned, instead of worrying about how to get what you want right now. Give yourself time. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Youre very blessed, because someone who loves you is aware of your present wants, and will knock themselves out trying to figure out ways to acquire them for you. Aries (March 21-April 19) Help with a critical yet perplexing decision is on its way. Listen carefully to the new alternatives being presented one of them holds the key to your dilemma. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Perform to the very best of your abilities without thinking about whats in it for you. If you do a good job, the accolades will manifest. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Youve heard it a thousand times: relax and just be yourself when dealing with others, be they bigwigs or small fry. Whatever charisma you possess cannot be forced, so play it cool, Jack. Cancer (June 21-July 22) As soon as you get everyone in accord regarding a family matter, put the wheels in motion and youll get good results. Sit on things and youll waste another toothsome opportunity. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Dont base an important decision solely on its material aspects. Itll be important to put credence in other factors, such as principles and ethics, as well. Gibson to pay $750K to ex LOS ANGELES Mel Gibson will pay $750,000 to his ex-girlfriend and continue to provide housing and financial support for their young daughter to resolve a bitter legal fight that followed sexist, racist rants attributed to the actor. The settlement disclosed Wednesday is intended to end the bickering and accusations that have permeated the case handled in mostly secret proceedings for more than a year, Superior Court Judge Peter Lichtman said. Gibsons payments to Russian musician Oksana Grigorieva are dependent on a lasting truce. As part of the agreement, their daughter will receive support equal to what the actor-director provides for his other seven children. The former couple will split custody of the girl, who turns 2 in late October.ONeills star in front of shoe store LOS ANGELES Ed ONeills star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is appropriately placed: in front of a DSW shoe store on Hollywood Boulevard.

ONeill called the honor overwhelming and thanked fans, then quipped, Just think, somewhere in this world a baby girl is being born and she is going to be my next wife. Vergara is 26 years his junior, and Sagal 11. Rapper T.I. out of prison early ATLANTA Atlantabased rapper T.I. was released Wednesday one month early from a federal prison, where he was serving a weapons violation sentence.

Spotlight on PEOPLE Florida LOTTERIES SO YOU KNOW Last nights winning numbers, Page B4 E NTERTAINMENT Page B6 THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2011 Associated PressNEW YORK Before joining NBCs The Voice, Adam Levine says some folks assumed he was some singing bimbo that likes girls. So hes grateful to the show for providing a bit of clarification on his image. It was a nice opportunity to show my personality that I have a brain, said the lead singer of Maroon 5. Its also true: I am a bimbo and I like to sing and I like girls, but theres more to my personality; its a little more dynamic than that, and I like to show that on the show. Its cool. The singing competition which also features Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton as music coaches was a hit in its first season. The four coaches chose teams of eight after an audition process that allowed them only to hear the contestants voice, but not to see them. Once teams were whittled down to one contestant for each coach, Levines mentee the crooner Javier Colon was crowned the winner. The Voice helped showcase the playful and sillier side of the heavily-inked Levine. Band keyboardist Jesse Carmichael says Levines presence on the show was so positive for him definitely as a person, but for us as a band, too. Now, the group is taking advantage of the buzz: They recently released Moves Like Jagger, which features Voice co-star Aguilera, and it will be the No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 charts Thursday. It also hit No. 1 on the European and Canadian charts. The dance song is a departure for the pop-rockers, and they say theyre rushing to get a new album out this fall. In the past, the group released an album every three or four years. Were going to make it as quickly as we can (and) ride this wave of momentum, Levine said in an interview last week. Thats too long, he explained about past breaks between records. We cant do that anymore. Weve got to keep moving. The Grammy-winning groups 2002 debut, Songs About Jane, sold 4.7 million units and they followed that with another multiplatinum-seller, 2006s It Wont Be Soon Before Long. Last fall, they dropped their third album, the gold-selling Hands All Over, which was re-released to feature Jagger. On Maroon 5s upcoming album, the group says they want to take a new direction. Jagger was produced by Benny Blanco and Shellback, hitmakers for acts like Katy Perry, Ke$ha and Britney Spears. We can definitely stand to take more risks, Levine said. Its awesome to have that little feeling in your stomach like, Oh, this isnt safe, this isnt normal for us ... (and) if you dont do that, I think youre dead a as band.

J ULIANNE M UNN Chronicle food correspondentAt first glance it might seem to be a cultural contradiction. But the gourmet Italian and Cubanstyle cuisine at the new Natalias Pizza and Pasta restaurant in Crystal River is uniquely right on the mark. The buffet-style restaurant, with a variety of hot entrees priced at $5.75, offers a veritable kaleidoscope of fresh homebaked pastries, cookies and cakes, plus seven flavors of exquisite, creamy gelato. Named Natalias for the granddaughter of owners Augustin and Shirley Gonzalez, this eatery is a feast for anyone who savors the flavors of the Mediterannean and Caribbean. The family points to more than 25 years in the restaurant business from New York to Tampa, Dunnellon and now Crystal River. Augustin Gonzalez is Cuban born, but left that country at the age of 16. He was adopted by an Italian family in Westchester, N.Y. His wife, Shirley, was born in New York to Brazilian parents. Dont let the name of the restaurant fool you. This is so much more than pizza and pasta. Servers dish up the meals at the buffet, which are served with a salad and garlic rolls. The buffet varies from day to day, with seafood a priority on Fridays. Choices may include lasagna; Cuban Ropa Vieja, shredded pork stew; chicken and yellow rice; Cuban pork with rice and black beans in a mojo gravy; Picadillo over rice; Paella alla Valenciana, Cuban seafood and rice and much more. Its called a 2 3 special, an entree, salad and rolls all for $5.75. You can also get Stromboli, New York-style pizza, pressed Cuban sandwiches, various pasta dishes and salads. The restaurant seats up to 60 patrons and the service is pretty much do-it-yourself; although friendly waiters are available to help out and refresh your dining needs. When the family moved to Dunnellon, they began their culinary venture in a Shell service station, Gonzalez said. We were there for one year and we were so busy we decided to open a real restaurant when this place became available in Crystal River. Some of the family works at Natalias, too. Son-in-law Russell serves as pastry chef and his wife, Nicole, is all-around helper. Shirley Gonzalez is in charge of pizza, salads and, she said, anything that needs done. Augustin Gonzalez bakes and said My passion is Italian food. He is the former owner of two Italian Pavillion Restaurants in Tampa and Clearwater. He is also maestro of the gelato station, turning out such wonders as Pina Colada, Mango and Double Chocolate gelatos, so creamy and delicious it is almost impossible to say enough! There are seven flavors now and he hopes to have as many as 18 ready very soon. Cooking and baking are just some of Gonzalezs talents. His fine art paintings (reminiscent of Gaugin) grace the walls of Natalias. He has sold nearly 500 of his art works at exhibitions in the Tampa area and is a member of National American Crafters. But food is front and center for the Gonzalez family, who also specialize in catering for weddings, banquets, birthdays, church and school functions and pizza parties with magic shows and comedy routines. Gonzalez said he learned the art of magic blended with comedy from his adopted Italian family, who brought their skills to the Tampa area. Im here on earth to make people laugh and feed them I cant do that where I came from, he said. He is passionate about fresh ingredients, noting only Grande brand cheese is used on Natalias pizzas, and Grande is the best cheese money can buy. He also makes Italian bread for the restaurant.

The following are just a couple of the foods I remember from a long time ago. I was 17 when I worked my first job. Most times, I took my lunch to work, but once in a while I walked across the street to a little diner called the Coffee Pot. There, I would order my favorite, a cream cheese and green olive sandwich. Other times, it would be a cube steak sandwich on toast with lots of butter! (Lets see us eat that now!) When I was older I had a job in downtown Buffalo, New York. At least twice a week, I would walk two blocks to the five and dime store (Woolworths) where they had a lunch counter. I would always order the warm apple dumpling covered with a warm vanilla sauce along with my root beer float. I miss the apple dumpling and wish I had the recipe for it and warm vanilla sauce. The cream cheese and olive sandwich and apple dumpling came way before the introduction of Buffalo Chicken Wings, the authentic ones introduced by the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York, and the beef on weck sandwiches all of which I still love.

And yet it is an important piece of the wine tasting ritual, particularly for the pro whose critical ratings often influence the market price of a wine label. Are you going to buy a so-so wine over a highly rated label, given the same price? Its a no brainer. Several personal stories illustrate the reasons for not swallowing a mouthful of wine. At a recent ABC store event, a gentle lady noticed I was using one of the little buckets on each table to release the wine in my mouth. Is that what those are for? she asked. To get rid of stuff that doesnt taste good? Well yes and no, I answered. Sure you can use these little buckets to unload unpleasant tasting stuff. But actually, I am trying to sample and report on a bunch of different labels. And it just isnt possible to gulp em all down because after a while, two things will take place. Taste buds will atrophy, and worse, a brain becomes tipsy, which will further impair judgment. So, its OK to just spit the stuff out? she asked in amazement. I never knew that. At another occasion as I was again trying to offload some wine, I whispered to the people in front of the table, Excuse me, I need to spit. To which one person replied: Well thanks for sharing that with us. Sorry, I said after doing the deed. No offense. See, most tasters just do not ever appreciate the need. I learned my lesson years ago. After attending a trade tasting lasting through some 50-plus labels through a span of several hours, it was time to pack up my notes and go home. As I started to exit the hotel driveway, a rent-a-cop flagged me down. Sir, he said, do you know you are driving down a one-way street? Sheepishly I turned around, parked the car, walked back into the hotel where I ordered coffee and a sandwich. Fifty swallows led to I am not sure what degree of intoxication, but certainly I was over the limit. An example well learned. Over the years and through countless tastings, I have learned how not to swallow. To spit or not to spit?

If you are going to a wine tasting simply to get a buzz, I would suggest a nice martini or Cosmo instead. These events are arranged, after all, to allow consumers to taste an array of wines without the need to purchase an entire bottle. The idea is to discover something that appeals within ones price range. But to do so, the senses need to be sharp. Fair warning: as you knock back even a single ounce per label, be aware after a couple of dozen samples, close to an entire bottle may have gone down the drain. This leaves taste buds blitzed, whether you may think so or not. I know someone is going to ask, so the answer is: for sure wine tasters can fully appreciate flavors without the need to swallow. Best advice: keep it moderate. And remember, wine is like music, you may not know what is good, but you sure know what you like.

BRUSCHETTA WITH TOMATO AND BASIL 6 or 7 ripe plum tomatoes (about 1 1/2 lbs) 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar 6 to 8 fresh basil leaves, chopped. Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 1 baguette French bread or similar Italian bread 1/4 cup olive oil Prepare the tomatoes first. Cut them in halves or quarters and remove the seeds and juice from their centers. Make sure a top rack is in place in your oven. Turn on the oven to 450 degrees to preheat. While the oven is heating, chop up the tomatoes finely. Put tomatoes, garlic, 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, vinegar in a bowl and mix. Add the chopped basil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Slice the baguette on a diagonal about 1/2 inch thick slices. Coat one side of each slice with olive oil using a pastry brush. Place on a cooking sheet, olive oil side down. You will want to toast them on the top rack in your oven. Toast for 5-6 minutes, until the bread just begins to turn golden brown. Align the bread on a serving platter, olive oil side up. Either place the tomato topping in a bowl separately with a spoon for people to serve themselves over the bread, or place some topping on each slice of bread and serve. If you top each slice with the tomatoes, do it right before serving or the bread may get soggy.

Gelato. A dessert to treasure. I was formally introduced to the wonders of gelato by Augustin Gonzalez, owner and chef at the new Natalias Pizza and Pasta Restaurant (see todays featured story), recently. This incredible confection is made on the premises by Augustin himself and it is divine. Of course, as with anything new to me and especially with something so delicious, I had to know the origin of the ancient Italian dessert. As is often the case, www.wikipedia.com helped out, along with info from Augustin. Gelato is different from some ice cream, because it has a lower butterfat content. Gelato typically contains 4 to 8 percent butterfat, versus 14 percent for ice cream in the United States. Gelato has a higher sugar content than ice cream. Dairy-based gelato contains 16 percent to 24 percent sugar and water and fruit based sorbet contains 24 percent to 30 percent sugar. Most ice cream in the United States contains 12 to 16 percent sugar. The sugar content in gelato is precisely balanced with the water content to act as an anti-freeze to prevent the gelato from freezing solid. The thing is, like most food too good to be true, gelato must not be kept in the freezer for more than a few days to retain its goodness, while standard ice cream can be frozen for a few months. Also, the technique used in adding flavors and fruits to gelato unlike ice cream results in a rare richness of tastes. Stop by Natalias and try the gelato! Brothers Pizza and Italian Restaurant in the Crystal Springs Shopping Center on State Road 44 a few doors down from Publix, reopened last Wednesday when owner Vinnie Schiano returned from a vacation in Naples, Italy. Judging from the uptick in business, he got back just in time seemed a lot of folks (including us) were hungrily waiting for the open sign and a bruchetta/spaghetti fix. Vinnie said he had a great but too short vacation with family and friends in Napoli at tables laden with traditional dishes.

I f I had to choose one recipe that defined summer on a plate, it would be lemon chicken steaks with summer salad. I love making this meal-in-one at the end of the summer when the farmers markets and backyard gardens are bursting with cucumbers and tomatoes. Its a great way to use all that extra produce. The chicken steaks start with boneless, skinless chicken breasts that are lightly pounded until they are about 1/2-inch think. This makes the chicken cook quickly and evenly. And for all those cooks who are a little nervous about pounding the chicken, Ive got a foolproof approach. To start, remove the tenderloin from the backsides of the chicken breasts (they can be saved and used for something else). Coat the breasts with oil, then one at a time place them in a zipclose plastic bag. The oil is essential, as it will prevent the chicken from shredding as you pound it. Close the bag, then using a rolling pin or meat pounder, pound away until the chicken breast is large and evenly flat. You can do this step up to a day ahead and keep the chicken in the refrigerator in the closed bag until you are ready to cook. The beauty of this salad is that there is no lettuce, so the salad can be made in advance and left undressed. The base of the salad is comprised of chunks of cucumber, tomato, onions, feta cheese and black olives. You could add mushrooms or sugar snap peas or radishes, anything you like or you need to use up. Its best to do the chopping and mixing before you grill the chicken, as it wont take long on the grill and youll want to serve the chicken soon after it cooks. I prefer using an outdoor grill because there is virtually nothing to clean, but you also can use a grill pan. The chicken is grilled with a light coat of olive oil and seasoned simply with kosher salt and pepper. And the real magic happens when the grilling is done. As soon as the chicken comes off the grill, you squeeze fresh lemon juice over both sides. The hot chicken absorbs the lemon juice as it rests and you cannot believe the difference it makes! The chicken sparkles like a star and takes this summer salad from simple to spectacular! Wait five minutes and place a chicken steak on top of the salad and serve with a dollop of tzatziki (garlic-cucumber yogurt dressing). LEMON CHICKEN STEAKS WITH SUMMER SALAD AND TZATZIKI The tzatziki can be made up to three days in advance. The flavors intensify and taste better once theyve had a chance to meld. The recipe will make about 2 cups and you will have leftovers. It also makes a delicious dip and sandwich spread. The chicken also is good served on top of a Greek salad with a spicy oregano vinaigrette. For the salad: 4 medium fully ripe tomatoes, cut into wedges 1 cucumber, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks 1 small red onion, halved and sliced into semi-circle rings 20 oil-cured black olives, more or less to taste Kosher salt and ground black pepper 1 teaspoon dried or fresh herbs, such as oregano, basil, thyme, etc. 2 ounces feta cheese, cut into 8 pieces (optional) For the tzatziki dressing: 2 cups plain, non-fat Greek-style yogurt 1/2 medium seedless cucumber, diced 3 cloves garlic, crushed 1 tablespoon olive oil 1/2 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice Kosher salt and ground black pepper For the chicken: 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts Olive oil Kosher salt and ground black pepper 2 lemons, cut into wedges 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley Strips of lemon zest, to garnish (optional) To prepare the salad, in a large bowl combine the tomatoes, cucumbers, onion and olives. Mix well, then season with salt, pepper and herbs. Add the feta cheese, if using, then set aside. To prepare the dressing, in a large bowl combine the yogurt, cucumber, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix well. Refrigerate until ready to serve. To make the chicken, heat the grill to medium. Pat dry each breast and remove the tenderloins, if still attached. Brush each piece of chicken lightly with oil on both sides. One at a time, place each chicken breast in a zip-close plastic bag. Using a meat mallet or rolling pin, gently pound each breast until evenly 1/2inch thick. At this stage, the chicken can be refrigerated for cooking later. Brush each piece of chicken steak with olive oil again on both sides. Season each breast with salt and pepper, then grill directly over the heat for about 6 minutes, turning once halfway through the cooking time. When the chicken is marked and cooked through, remove from the grill. Immediately, squirt 1 to 2 lemon wedges over each piece of chicken and let sit for 2 to 3 minutes. Garnish with chopped parsley and strips of lemon zest, if desired. Serve on top of the summer salad with a spoonful of tzatziki. From start to finish, it takes 45 minutes and serves four.

T here are only a few days in August left. The school doors open for another term next week. Where have these summer months gone to so fast? Son Kevin is down to counting times to sleep before his 6th birthday on Sept. 2. Kevin is our youngest and he will be 6 and starting kindergarten. The years go way too fast for me. Daughter Lovina, 7, will still let me hold her on my lap a lot more than Kevin does. He tells me Mom I am not a baby anymore. At the recent family gathering, Kevin told my husband Joe he doesnt need help carrying his plate anymore. He said at school I carry my own plate. You can just really see them grow up. Kevin was helping Benjamin, 12, and Joseph, 9, clean out the chicken coop this week. He came walking in with farm boots two times too big for him and said see, Mom. I am helping I have manure on my boots. It just made me laugh to think if he is dirty he thinks we will know he is helping. Daughter Susan, 15, is training another pony for a family in our church. This one is named Minnie and is quite a bit calmer to handle. Lovina will lead it around a lot and crawl on its back. It is tinier than ours, so it is easier for them to get on and off. Our border collie dog, Buddy, likes to take the ponys rope and lead it around. On Friday evening, we went to a local benefit auction and supper for an Amish man in the community. The proceeds went to help pay his medical expenses. On Saturday, we had an easy dinner as chicken was being delivered in our community to help an Amish man from a nearby community with his medical expenses. It is nice to be able to share one anothers burdens. Verena has managed to start walking without crutches now. She has a walking sandal on her cast. She still has to put the brace on her leg at night. It is just nicer for her to get around without using crutches. She seems to be able to keep the pain under control most times. Our third cutting hay is cut down and we should be able to bale within a few days. We are hoping the rain holds off until the hay is inside. I have more tomatoes to can that the boys picked for me. Our potatoes didnt do so well. So, it looks as if we will buy storage potatoes for the winter. Last week, we also did several more batches of salsa and canned more green beans and hot peppers. If my cucumbers keep doing well, I would like to can some more dill pickles. The children like these with sandwiches. When our horses accidentally got out while I was at the hospital with Verena a few weeks ago, they trampled some of my cucumber plants. The horses killed a few of the plants, but others survived. Elizabeth, 17, wants to cut the boys out some pants for school. We are hoping to get those sewn this week and some new shirts for them. The girls seem to have enough dresses for now. I want to have Susan help her sew. Susan would much rather clean out the horse stalls than do any sewing. I think once she gets the hang of it she will enjoy it, though. Try this sweet potato casserole. SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE 3 cups of mashed sweet potatoes. 1 egg, beaten 1 /2 cup heavy cream 5 tablespoons sugar 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 1 tablespoon melted butter Peel, cook, mash and whip sweet potatoes until smooth. You should have 3 cups of potatoes after mashing. After mashing the sweet potatoes and placing in a large mixing bowl, add beaten egg, heavy cream, sugar, salt and nutmeg. Beat until light and fluffy. Put everything into a buttered 1 1 /2 quart casserole dish. Optional: sprinkle evenly with 2 teaspoons of finely grated orange rind. Drizzle with melted butter. Bake at 400 for 30 minutes or until brown. Lovina Eicher and her husband, Joe, are raising eight children on their rural Michigan homestead.

Special to the ChronicleThe opportunity for sea cadets to outfit and train on their own Zodiac boat started when their commanding officer, LTJG Todd Dunn, began flipping through the Navy League magazine. Using the directory of military suppliers in the periodical, Dunn contacted Zodiac North America, which manufactures rubber inflatable boats. Bob Beck and Steve Seigel of the company agreed to donate an FC470 Zodiac to the Manatee Division of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps. The boat arrived in a crate. During the August drill at U.S. Coast Guard Station Yankeetown, the cadets under Dunns command had the privilege of opening the crate and inflating the Zodiac. Once the boat was assembled, cadets were given instructions on how to carry it, how to sit in it and how to roll off the side. The Sea Cadet leader knew the boat wouldnt be fully outfitted on arrival, but Zodiac North America had kindly included six paddles with the donation. The Yankeetown Coast Guard Station, commanded by BMC Christopher Hinote, was also happy to donate surplus helmets to the cadets for their training. We are developing a whole course of training around this boat. By the time they have mastered paddling it and following crew commands, we hope to have found a motor for it, said Dunn. We had a sister of a cadet who never wanted to be a Sea Cadet, decide to join us because of this donation. The cadets are excited to get on the water, Dunn said, but do need a few more items to make their vessel completely seaworthy, including a motor and other safety equipment. Manatee Division drills at Coast Guard Station Yankeetown on the second weekend of each month. To learn more about Sea Cadets, go to www.manateediv.org.

AARP offers safe driver courses Special to the ChronicleNature Coast Volunteer Center, in partnership with Citrus County Schools, has developed a program designed to recruit and train volunteer tutors to work with elementary students. The ASPIRE program, an acronym for Achieving Student Progress in Reading Education, is focused on strengthening literacy skills of students. Florida and the entire nation are striving to improve teaching and learning for all students. Citrus County schools have been highly successful in providing learning opportunities and options for students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade; however, there are many students who continue to struggle with literacy, particularly with reading comprehension. These children are in need of highly individualized assistance and instruction. The Nature Coast Volunteer Center and Retired & Senior Volunteer Program are seeking volunteers interested in registering for upcoming ASPIRE training opportunities. Registered volunteers will receive the required training and orientation provided by the Citrus County School District, as well as additional specialized training facilitated by a literacy expert who will teach tutors the skills necessary to assist children with reading fluency and comprehension skills. Volunteer opportunities are available at all 11 district elementary schools, working with first-, second-, and third-grade students. ASPIRE volunteers will be asked to serve a few hours a day for one to two days per week. The trainings will be at the Citrus County School Board office, 1007 W. Main St., Inverness. Training dates are: Volunteer tutor and mentor training: 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9. ASPIRE program tutor training: 1 to 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16. For more information or to register for the trainings, call Nature Coast Volunteer Center at (352) 527-5950 or email email@example.com.

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T HURSDAY, S EPTEMBER 1, 2011 C5 Dr. Karl Menninger, a psychiatrist who died in 1990, said, Set up as an ideal the facing of reality as honestly and as cheerfully as possible. Set up has several meanings. For example, someone can be set up to take the rap for an illegal deed. Or a chessboard can be set up for a game. Or a suit can be set up (established) to provide at least one extra winner. That needs to be done in this deal, but how? South is in six spades and West leads a trump. Did West have a more effective lead? North had a nasty first response. He was too weak for two hearts and too strong for one no-trump. With an ace, two kings and a five-card suit, he went for the overbid. Souths jump-rebid showed an excellent suit with extra values. And when North raised, South bid what he hoped he could make. If West had led a club, he would have defeated the slam. But why would he have chosen that? South had 11 top tricks: six spades, two hearts, two diamonds and one club. He needed to set up a third heart winner. Normally, one would take dummys top hearts, ruff a heart (assume they break 42), return to dummy, ruff another heart, go back to dummy, and cash the 13th heart. Here, though, declarer did not have enough dummy entries. Instead, after drawing trumps, South led a heart from his hand and played low from the board. East shifted to the club king, but declarer won with his ace, took dummys top hearts, ruffed a heart, played a diamond to dummys king, and discarded his diamond loser on the heart six.

I have to remind him frequently to pick up after himself and finish what he started. He leaves all the cabinet doors open and throws his clothes and other belongings all over the living room. I know these complaints seem like little things, but its been a struggle for me to take care of the new baby and the house, and he compounds my problems. He doesnt seem to be putting any effort into keeping up our home or marriage. Ive told Bill how important these little things are to me, but he cant see what the big deal is. I have tried many approaches to helping him get organized. Ive reminded him with humor, with gentleness, with repetition and finally nagging until it gets done. He offers excuses and apologizes, but makes no effort to change. I fear what will happen when I go back to work soon. It is putting a strain on our relationship, and arguing is exhausting. What can I do so that I am not living in a constant state of annoyance? Frustrated Wife Dear Wife: New mothers often become exhausted and depressed. Try to separate yourself from the mess. If Bill tosses clothes or other things on the floor, kick them into an out-ofthe-way corner and say nothing. He knows hes a slob, and hes rebelling. When you go back to work, see if you can set aside some money to pay for occasional cleaning assistance. If Bill doesnt like the expense, tell him sweetly that it is obviously his choice, since he isnt capable of pitching in. Dear Annie: My mother died recently. Over the years, she had managed to alienate everyone, including her children. Nonetheless, I tried to be there for her in the end. She said she loved me, yet despite my efforts to reconcile, she never apologized for some of the truly terrible things she said and did that created the rift. Im a grown woman feeling like a lost and unloved child. But some hurts go deep and need to be addressed, not ignored. Why didnt my mother try to fix things? Wasnt I worth it? Did she really love me? As children grow into adults, we learn to accept our parents shortcomings. I am writing to beg your readers to show their love to their children, through words as well as actions, and to heal relationships before its too late. Apologize for any wrongdoing. Dont expect your child to be someone he or she isnt. Make every effort to love your childs partner, and never force your child to choose between you. Please dont leave your children with the painful legacy of doubting they were truly loved. You may think it doesnt matter, but in the end, love is all that truly matters. I am planning to get counseling, but I hope this letter can help someone else avoid my pain. Grieving in Georgia Dear Georgia: Thank you. We are certain it will. Please know that this is not about your worthiness to be loved. It is about your mothers inability to show it. Dear Annie: A lot of seniors write to you complaining that their children are not attentive enough. My father was fond of saying that two parents could take care of 10 children, but 10 children could not take care of two parents. Now that I am 87 years old, I have the same complaint. I make a point not to get upset. I understand that my daughters and their children are busy with their own lives and childrearing, and they contact me when they find the time. Id love to hear from them more often, but know that what goes around comes around. Someday, they will experience the same longing and will have to learn to live with it. Glendora, Calif.

Special to the ChronicleEllie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park and the Friends of Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park seek area businesses and organizations to participate in the annual Haunted Tram Rides community event scheduled for Friday, Oct. 28, and Saturday, Oct. 29. The event will begin at 6 p.m. each evening, and run until 11 p.m. Pepper Creek Trail will be transformed into a trail of haunting scenarios to delight families. Participating businesses and organizations will be given a location on Pepper Creek Trail to decorate with their own spooky set-up. Guidelines and applications are available at the park office. There will be no charge to sponsor a location and all locations will be judged for cash awards for first ($500), second ($300) and third places ($100). This popular annual event is a great community relations project for your business or group, and all participating sponsors will be recognized, said Art Yerian, park manager. This will be the seventh year the Friends of Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park has staged the Haunted Tram Rides, an event which has attracted thousands of visitors each night. In addition to the Haunted Tram Rides, the event includes family fun such as clowns, face painting, a Halloween costume contest, refreshments and trinkets for the children. The suggested donation for the tram ride is $5 for adults and $3 for children up to age 12. A special Haunted House for children will be set up in the Florida Room. The donation for admission to the Haunted House is $2. The Citrus County Sheriffs Office will offer its Childrens Identification Program in the Visitor Center from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. It includes fingerprinting, videotaping and DNA samples, and takes about 10 to 15 minutes per child. There is no charge for the service. There will be an opportunity for children to change into costumes for the costume contest after the identification program. If your business, club, group or family is interested in participating, call Susan Strawbridge, park services specialist, at (352) 628-5445, ext. 1002. Call to participate in Haunted Tram Rides Wildlife State Park making plans for Halloween event Special to the ChronicleA walk-a-thon is slated for 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, at Withlacoochee Bay Trail at the Barge Canal off U.S. 19 North in Crystal River. The event will raise money for St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital, a center for research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. In addition to the walk-a-thon, a free family event will offer hot dogs and refreshments until supplies run out, as well as games and activities for children. Several businesses and groups from the area will be set up to promote their childrens services. The walking trail is 5 miles; participants can walk the entire trail or a distance chosen according to their ability. Water and benches will be available for rest stops for participants. There will be an EMT on site. Sponsor envelopes are available for those who want to walk. Those who wish to participate or volunteer to help, or businesses that would like to be sponsors, are asked to call coordinator Natalie Zinsser at (352) 422-3043 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Founded by actor Danny Thomas, St. Jude depends on community-based fundraising programs to offer its services. At St. Jude, families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance, and no child is ever denied treatment because of a familys inability to pay. To date this year, 923 Florida children have been helped at the Memphis, Tenn., hospital. Walk-a-thon to raise funds for childrens hospital St. Jude Childrens Research Center will benefit
