Fighting a

powerful drug
staft writer

Pharmacist Raj Patel will say only his
pharmacy caters to people who are
sick and need medication when asked
if he stocks oxycodone.
Patel and other pharmacists have unwit-
tingly found themselves at the tip of the
spear in law enforcement's efforts to blunt
prescription drug abuse in Florida and
across the nation.
And while the new role of pharmacists
and legislation have helped to dramatically
reduce access to drugs for abusers, Patel
said they are feeling stressed and law en-
forcement continues to push harder against
Patel's pharmacy was recently robbed by a
yet-to-be caught bandit looking for drugs.
"It is all a lot of pressure on us. We are not
trained law enforcement people. This is not
what we study in pharmacy school. We are

He said pharmacists are also worried be-
cause of the new and more stringent con-
trols on how drugs are dispensed, the
criminal element is now focusing on them to
get drugs.
According to Citrus County Sheriff's Office
Detective John Bergen, the new "pill mill"
law that came into effect in 2011 has placed
serious stress on the ability of drug abusers
and pushers to access pills.
Bergen said most of that is attributable to
one element of the law which bars doctors in
pain clinics from dispensing oxycodone.
"Just to give you an example of what that
provision did: In 2011 there (were) 854 pain
clinics in Florida; a year later, there 508,"
Bergen said.
"It is a constant battle for us in law en-
forcement because there are people who le-
gitimately need these pills to help fight
cancer or other diseases, and the drugs are
legal if you have a prescription. The things
we can do is keep being proactive and go
after them and try to disrupt what they are
doing. The local pharmacists have provided
us a lot of help, too," Bergen said.
He said pharmacies in Citrus County are
voluntarily refusing to fill prescriptions by
doctors from other counties. Bergen said it
is not part of the new law, but that is some-
thing that helps law enforcement and phar-
macies keep better track of the flow of drugs.
Bergen said the role of law enforcement

combat prescription pill abuse starts in the
"We are finding that a lot of the kids or
younger pick up the habit by going into
grandma's or their parent's medicine cabi-
nets," Bergen said.
He said the sheriff's office has set up a
drop-off program where people who want to
discard unneeded or expired prescription

change the brain in such a

both symptoms of depend-
ence. When users suddenly
stop taking oxycodone, they
can experience severe
withdrawal symptoms, such
as anxiety, nausea, insom-
nia, muscle pain, fever and
other flu-like symptoms.

Like other narcotic med-
ications, oxycodone can im-

include breathing irregu-

pression, headaches,
nausea, dizziness, seizures,

pharmacists have also pre-

substances for illicit use.
So you knOW
According to the Florida
Medical Examiner's Office,
it has seen a 345.9 percent
increase in the number of
overdose deaths associated
wihoxycde e bet een
205and 21Fr 21,
data showed that approxi-
mately 4,091 persons died
in Florida alone from an
overdose caused by just
one of five drugs or drug
classes: methadone, oxy-
codone, hydrocodone, all
benzodiazepines or mor-
phine. This is an average of
11.2 persons dying in the

state of Florida every day.
Since many of the drug
seekers who frequent the
rogue Florida pain clinics
return to their state of resi-
dency, there are surely
more deaths and injuries
caused from the drugs that
are diverted from these
clinics than just those re-
ported by the Florida Med-
ical Examiner's Office.
SAccording to the Sub-
stance Abuse and Mental
Health Services Adminis-
tration's (SAMHSA's) 2010
National Survey on Drug
Use and Health (NSDUH),
7 million Americans were
current (past month) non-
medical users of psy-
chotherapeutic drugs,
significantly higher (by 12
percent) compared to 6.2
million in 200mt over three

million Americans, re-
ported non-medical use of
pain relievers.
aThe NSDUH survey
also indicated that the non-
medical use of prescription
drugs was second only to
marijuana abuse. On aver-
age, more than 6,600 people
12 years and older initiate
use of a controlled sub-
stance pharmaceutical
drug for nonmedical pur-
poses every day.
aThe Centers for Dis-
ease Control and Pre en-
tion (CDC) reported tat
the number of poisoning
deaths involving any oploid
analgesics increased from

20, 0or ta trin ion0

SSAMHSA's Treatment
Episode Data set shows
that between 1999 and 2009
the number of admissions
to substance abuse treat-
ment that reported any
pain re iever a use in-
creased more than six-fold.
SAccording to DAWN
data, the number of emer-
gency department visits in-
volving the misuse or abuse
of pharmaceuticals in-
creased by 98.4 percent be-
tween 2004 and 2009.

What iS
Oxycodone is a semi-
synthetic opiate and the ac-
tive ingredient in a number
of prescription pain relief
medications. OxyContin, a
time-release formula of
oxycodone, is available in
doses ranging from 10 to 80
mg, and is intended for
long-term relief of severe
pain. The medications Per-
cocet, Percodan and Tylox
contain small doses (2.5 to
10 mg) of oxycodone com-
bined with other active in-
gredients, such as aspirin
and acetaminophen. Oxy-
codone is a Schedule II
controlled substance with
high abuse potential.
How is oxycodone
Those who abuse the
drug generally do so in
three ways: crushing the
pill into a fine powder and
snorting it; chewing it; or
crushing and dissolving the
tablets in water and inject-
ing the solution. These
methods are primarily used
to defeat the time-release
mechanism in OxyContin
tablets, causing the active
ingredient to take full effect
almost immediately after
ingestion. Using oxycodone

Special to the Chronicle

Many who have been in
citrus county for years re-
member when the Crystal
River Mall opened and its
developer, DeBartolo, com-
missioned waterfowl and
marine artist, Don Mayo, to
create life-size sculptures to
the rooftops. They still
adorn the mall today.
At that time, America was
in the midst of Desert
Storm, and Mayo created an
eagle and flag painting
named "Pride."
Indeed, this creation has
raised more monies for
charity in the state of
Florida than any of Mayo's
A few years ago, Mayo
started creating another
"thankful for being an
American"-style painting.
But fate took another
His wife, Sue, survived a
treacherous head-on car acci-
dent, leading the couple to
close their gallery on U.S. 19
after 10 years in business.
Many surgeries from various
injuries followed for Sue, with
a most difficult outcome of a
traumatic brain injury
Mayo put the painting
away and took care of Sue
and built his custom boat
over the next five years.
Mayo and his boat have
been seen running the Crys-
tal River with his flying pet
hen mallard, Topsider, and
Pup the Lab, who are his
constant "boat buddies."

Time passed and they re-
opened the gallery at Heritage
Village, but fate interfered
again. A sinkhole opened at
their home, moving them to
three different living loca-
tions, everything coming out
of their house with 220 cubic
feet of concrete coming in,
Don's creative environment

In September 2011, they
were able to begin moving
back in studio first. And
out came the rolled-up
painting to again try to fin-
ish in between creating de-
coys and artwork for Ike's
Country Kitchen in Inglis.
Finally, the flag painting
was complete see a
close-up of just the eagle
here. Watch the Chronicle
for the unveiling and de-
tails of how to receive the
new creation.
But fate has again come
into the Mayos' life as Don
completed the new paint-
ing, which is called "Free-
dom." In November 2011, he
underwent surgery for two
malignant tumors and
started chemotherapy the
next day for a very aggres-
sive cancer.
In March 2012, he was op-
erated on again for two
larger malignant tumors. In
April, he traveled to Moffitt
Cancer Center where he is
part of a research study.
They performed a seven-
hour surgery, removing or-
gans and repairing some.
Eight days later, it was home

to Crystal River.
But in a week's time,
Mayo was running a 104-
degree fever, so back to Mof-
fitt he went, where he was
treated with heavy antibi-
otics. There is a long road
ahead, but the couple are
taking things a day at a time.
Sue had a lot of time to
create in her own way while
staying in the room with
Don. So after consulting
with the artist, they decided
"Freedom" needed to be
available to raise monies, as
was done with the sold-out
"Pri de."
This time, a custom photo
print produced with Visual
Sports will be available to
the public for a $25 donation
to Key Training Center to
help raise monies during
the July promotion for the
live auction and Run for the
State funding has been
cut for Key Training Center,
and the organization needs
the community's help. The
Mayos have been proud to
be a friend of the Key Train-
ing Center.
Donations for "Freedom"
will help them further the
mission of the organization.
The Mayos are again
thankful to the community,
friends and family for all the
support and continued
prayers to assist Don in his
days ahead.
More details will appear
in the Chronicle in the com-
ing week about how to buy a

durance swimmer Penny
Palfrey muscled past the
halfway mark Saturday as
she pushed through the
Florida Straits, enduring
jellyfish stings but other-
wise encountering perfect
conditions in her attempt
to become the first woman
to swim unassisted more
than 100 miles from Cuba
to the Florida Keys.
The British-born Aus-
tralian was swimming
steady and strong and re-
ported no physical com-
plaints, according to her
support team.
At about 4:30 p.m.,
roughly 34 hours into the
swim, the 49-year-old grand-
mother was 69 miles from
her starting point at a ma-
rina in the Cuban capital,
according to her website's
GPS tracking report. She
was positioned about 38
miles southwest of Key

We eviously, her personal
best was 67 miles when she
swam between Little Cay-
man and Grand Cayman is-
lands last year, according
to Andrea Woodburn, part
of her support team in the
Palfrey reapplied sun-
screen and grease to pre-
vent chafing and said the
water conditions had been
excellent other than the ex-
treme heat. She even spot-
ted a few hammerhead
sharks and dolphin pods.
Crew members said she
was barking orders at team
members accompanying

her on kayaks and a cata-
maran as she kept up a tor-
rid pace in a battle that
tested the limits of human
She is "physically and
mentally strong," Wood-
burn said, adding the
bathwater-warm waters re-
mained calm. "The condi-
tions couldn't be better and
she continues to progress
to the Florida Keys."
The 20-year veteran of
distance swimming is no
stranger to jellyfish stings,
which forced her to abort
two past swims in Hawaii.
Palfrey set off from Ha-
vana early Eriday. A mem-
ber of her crew was tweeting
to fans, while a webpage up-
dated her location every 10
minutes or so based on data
from a GPS device worn by
the swimmer
The GPS device showed
she reached the halfway
point near midday Friday,
according to her website.
The daunting effort has
bee commonly reported a

the GPS coordinates suggest
it is more like 107 miles.
Multiple challenges
loomed as Palfrey endured
a second day, including the
prospect of physical and
mental fatigue and fending
off dehydration, hypother-
mia and potentially dan-
gerous marine life. At her
current rate, it would take
her a bit more than 56
hours to complete the
swim, slightly above her
initial estimates. Wood-
burn believes ifshe contin-
ues the pace, Palfrey could
arrive Sunday morning.

Debbie Gardner went to
clean her 26-year-old late son
Brent's room after his death
in a car crash in 2009 and
tucked among his personal
effects was a one-sentence
note and a journal the young
man kept in which he had
chronicled his struggles with
oxycodone and life in general.
Gardner was fully aware of
her son's eight-year yo-yo
battle with addiction and ar-
rests on drug-related
charges, but the note and
journal opened her eyes to
the greater picture. She soon
realized her son's angst and
level of self-worth, his pre-
disposition for addiction and
the influences of others.
"I learned that these drugs
are used to mask and cover

He was on the straight and
narrow when he was driving
over the speed limit and with-
out fastened seatbelts Dec. 7,
2009. Brent and his girlfriend
were traveling on County
Road 581 when he was hit at
the intersection of Arbor
Point. The impact caused him
to hit the passenger side win-
dow of the vehicle. Both were
airlifted to Tampa, but Gard-
ner said her son died and the
girlfriend survived.
"When the autopsy report
came out, the first thing I
checked was whether he had
drugs in his system, and he
didn't. My heart was happy
he was clean when he died,
and I hope he has found
peace because he didn't have
that in his short life," Gard-
ner said.
These days Gardner said
she carries around her son's
driver's license and the note
she found, which reads:
"He who makes himself a
beast, gets rid of the pain of

Gardner said.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Board of County Commissioners of Citrus County, Florida, will
hold a public hearing on Tuesday, July 24, 2012 at 3:00 p.m. at the Board of County Commissioners'
Meeting Room, Citrus County Courthouse, 110 North Apopka Avenue, Inverness, Florida, for the
purpose of hearing public comment as to the assessment roll prepared for the 2012 Inverness Village
Unit 4 Road Paving Special Assessment District Plan B. A copy of the preliminary assessment roll as
examined and approved by the Board, is available in the office of the Assessment Coordinator in the
Citrus County Lecanto Government Building, 3600 W. Sovereign Path, Suite #205, Lecanto, Florida,
beginning July 3, 2012, for examination by the public and shall continue to be available until July 24,
2012. At said hearing the Board will meet and receive public comment from all interested persons as
to the assessments, the accuracy and the amount thereof against any lot or parcel of land owned by
such interested persons. The Board will also equalize and either annul, sustain or modify in whole, or
in part, the special assessment roll according to the special benefits that the Board determines that
each assessment unit (AU) will receive as a result of such improvements. The streets to be improved
are more particularly described in Exhibit "A" which is attached hereto and made a part hereof.

It is the intent of the Board that the special assessments heretofore described may be collected in the
same manner as ad valorem taxes and that if they are collected in the same manner as ad valorem
taxes that the failure to pay any installment payment of principal or interest when due shall result in
tax certificates being issued and ultimately the owner of the benefited property could lose title to said
property at a tax deed sale if not redeemed prior to such sale. Objections to this manner of collection
should be made at the same time as the hearing on the assessment roll scheduled above.

If a person decides to appeal any decision made by the Board of County Commissioners with respect
to any matter considered at this public hearing he will need to ensure that a verbatim record of the
proceedings is made which record shall include the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is
to be based.

Any person requiring reasonable accommodation at this meeting because of a disability or physical
impairment should contact the County Administrator's Office, 110 North Apopka Avenue, Inverness,
Florida 34450, (352) 341-6560, at least two days before the meeting. If you are hearing or speech
impaired, use the TTY Telephone (352) 341-6580.

SUNDAY, JULY 1, 2012 A7

The News Service of

much-anticipated ruling by
the U.S. Supreme Court
sucked the air out of the
room this week as all eyes
turned to the nation's high
court, which bucked odds-
makers and rejected
Florida's challenge to Pres-
ident Barack Obama's ambi-
tious health care overhaul.
A 5-4 decision, which
came the last day of its cur-
rent term, ended weeks of
prognostication, posturing
and expectation over the
sweeping decision that, for
now at least, shifts the
course of health care deliv-
ery in the United States.
Anticipating a different
decision, Republican offi-
cials rolled out the Florida
and U.S. flags and set up a
podium for an anticipated
press event lauding the high
court for striking down what
has been called Obamacare,
even by Obama supporters.

Instead, Florida Attorney
General Pam Bondi as-
cended the steps of the Old
Capitol to tell a bank of cam-
eras and reporters of her
extreme disappointment
that Florida's lawsuit chal-
lenging the federal govern-
ment's ability to require
citizens to carry health in-
surance was defeated by the
slimmest of margins.
Bondi's lament was
echoed throughout Republi-
can ranks in Tallahassee
and across the state as ana-
lysts combed through the
193-page labyrinth of a rul-
ing marked by shifting al-
liances and the surprising
and pivotal action of one of
the court's more conserva-
tive justices.
"This is going to be devas-
tating to our economy," Gov
Rick Scott told reporters
hours after the ruling.
"Probably more impor-
tantly, it is going to be dev-
astating to patients.
"If you look at every gov-
ernment program in the
world, they overpromise,

are all acceptable candi-
dates. Some better, some not
as good."
Kitchen received a 2.8
score just two-tenths off a
perfect score.
"From what I remember
about my school days that's
a pretty good score," he said.
Some candidates said
they don't recall receiving

scored below a 1 and the av-

one candidate received a

underpay providers and
that rations care," Scott
said. "On top of that, as bad
as it is for patients, it's going
to be just as bad for taxpay-
ers. We're not going to be
able to afford this."
Critics of the Affordable
Care Act took solace in at
least one part of the ruling:
Florida and other states
would not be held hostage
over federal Medicaid
funds should they decide
not to expand Medicaid cov-
erage to include nearly all
individuals under 133 per-
cent of poverty, or about
$30,000 for a family of four.
Florida officials have long
complained that the state
can barely afford to pay for
Medicaid now, and taking
on new enrollees could
bankrupt it, even if Wash-
ington will pick up 90 per-
cent of the cost.
They then turned their at-
tention to November, saying
the battle over who pays for
health care now shifts from
the courts to the polls.

Outfit ofthe week:
Black robes
Nearly all the news sur-
rounding state government
this week came out of some
court or other.
A federal judge in Talla-
hassee rejected an effort to
bar the state from resuming
a voter purge that is already
on hold, issuing a ruling that
could severely undermine
the U.S. Department ofJus-
tice's lawsuit against an ini-
tiative aimed at removing
suspected non-citizens from
the election rolls.
At the same time, U.S.
District Judge Robert Hin-
kle said his ruling not to
issue an injunction was
driven in part by assurances
from the state that it would
not forward any more
names to county elections
supervisors based on a list
of potentially ineligible vot-
ers that even the state con-
cedes is inaccurate. That

of constitutionally question-
able measures and legisla-
tion designed to crack down
on no-fault auto insurance
fraud are among about 150
new Florida laws going into
effect Sunday.
A law that bans state and
local governments from hir-
ing companies that do busi-
ness in Cuba and Syria
already has been chal-
lenged in court, and a fed-
eral judge has at least
temporarily put it on hold.
Gov Rick Scott's adminis-
tration earlier announced it
would not put into effect a
second new law allowing
random drug testing of state
employees until a legal
challenge to a similar exec-
utive order issued by Scott
is resolved.
Another statute that per-
mits inspirational messages,
including prayers, in public
schools has drawn threats of
lawsuits. Legal action, how-
ever, may not be necessary
to negate the law because it
gives local school boards the
option of implementing it.
"Nobody's going to do it,"
said Waynte Blanthon, e ec
School Boards Association.
"We are telling them it will
becotly and not worth the
Some of the other laws
with July 1 effective dates
would enlarge Scott's power
over state rule making, re-
store tax credits for renew-
able energy and expand
online learning for elemen-
tary school students.
There are also tax breaks
for businesses and new laws

The state's new $69.9 billion
budget asao goes ition i -

personal injury protection
- or PIP coverage. Since
1972, Florida motorists have
been re quired to buy such
coverage to make sure any-
one injured in a crash gets
money to treat their injuries
without delay. A driver's in-
surance company is re-
quired to pay up to $10,000
for medical bills and lost
wages no matter who is at
Bogus claims and faked
accidents, though, are
largely responsible for a
$1.4 billion increase in PIP
costs since 2008, state offi-
cials say.
The new law puts a 14-day
limit on seeking treatment
after a crash. Benefits also
are capped at $2,500 unless
a doctor, osteopathic physi-
cian, dentist or a supervised
physician's assistant or ad-
vanced registered nurse
practitioner determines
there's an "emergency med-
ical condition." Chiroprac-
tors cannot make that
After the inspirational
messages law was adopted,
local school districts were
warned by the American
Civil Liberties Union of
Florida that adopting poli-
cies permitting student-led
inspirational messages
would "very likely lead to
prolonged litigation." Any
district that adopted the
measure could be on the
hook for hundreds of thou-
sands in legal fees.
Americans United for
Separation of Church and
State also is prepared to
take legal action, said Alex
Luchenitser, the group's as-
sociate legal director. The
law doesn't use the word
"prayer" but it still invites
prayer, Luchenitser said.
"I don't think it's going to
happen," said the ACLU's
Florida executive director,
Howard Simon. "For all of
the efforts of our Legisla-
ture to try to entice school
officials into joining their
religious crusade, school of-
ficials are smarter than

The law's sponsors,
though, remain confident it
will be implemented. Rep.
Charles Van Zant, a Key-
stone Heights Republican
who carried the bill in the
House, said some school of-
ficials have told him they'll
push for allowing inspira-
tional messages, but he de-

clined to identify them.
Sen. Gary Siplin, an Or-
lando Democrat who is the
law's prime sponsor, said he
expects it to be an election
issue for school board
"I would assume they
don't want to tell parents
their children can't pray in
school," Siplin said.
The drug law is on hold
after a Miami federal judge
in April ruled in a lawsuit
filed by the ACLU and a
public employee union that

For so many people who have struggled with dieting, bariatric surgery is
as much about gain as it is loss. With the benefits of weight loss surgery,
you may have less risk for diabetes, heart disease and less dependence
on medication ... and, of course, long-term weight loss. The question is -
what do you have to gain?

I'm hoping that's
meant as a compliment.
Friends bought me the
shirt as a present while they
were on a two-week cruise

about which we hear plenty.
Much to Sue's embarrass-

When I dress up, I throw a
blue blazer over it. No tie
necessary. Many times, I am
the only person in the entire

them into "celebrations of

oland Township Administra-
Scharville said. "A lot of

people don't want any type of drilling.
There's something about disturbing
the sanctuary of a cemetery. We're not
talking about dinosaurs now and crea-
tures that roamed the earth millions
of years ago. We're talking about loved
ones who have died, people we knew."
Plot owners have no legal claim to
mineral rights at a cemetery,
Stephenson said. Their agreements
are for an indefinite rental of sorts at
the surface level -and a promise the
site will be maintained, he said.
The Ohio township was also wor-
ried about not acting, Scharville said,
out of fear the oil and gas could be
claimed through mandatory pooling,
and they would wind up with nothing.
Under such laws, well operators can
seek underground access to proper-
ties without the owner's permission
through a state review board.
The inability to control mineral
rights has also become a concern in
Colorado, where the National Ceme-
tery Association, which operates vet-
erans' cemeteries, is working to select
a site for a new cemetery.
One of four prospective sites, in
Fountain, could have been open to
drilling because the mineral rights
weren't free and clear, said Glenn
Madderom, the agency's chief of ceme-
tery development and improvement
service. That presented a disincentive,
even though its owners plan to donate
the land at no cost to the government.
The administration also success-
fully fought to move drilling opera-
tions to the other side of a forest
abutting the veterans' cemetery in
Natchez, Miss., to preserve the mood,
he said. Such sites are all eventually
listed on the National Register of His-
toric Places.

DENVER Drought and
wildfire fears are snuffing
out some Fourth of July fes-
tivities this year.
From Utah to Indiana,
state and local governments
are calling off annual fire-
works displays out of fear
that a stray rocket could ig-
nite tinder-dry brush and
trigger a wildfire. They're
also warning residents not to
use fireworks, sparklers or
Roman candles in backiyards.
The worry is especially
acute in the West, where
crews are already battling
out-of-control blazes in sev-
eral states. Parts of the Mid-
west are affected, too, after
weeks without any signifi-
cant rain.
"We usually have a fire-
works barge and a huge gala
that attracts thousands of
people," said Bill Appleby
of the Grand Lake Area
Chamber of Commerce,
which represents the lake-
side resort town about 90
miles northwest of Denver
in the Rocky Mountains.
The display is usually safe
out on the water, but "we
just can't risk an errant
It's not uncommon for
communities to delay or
cancel fireworks shows be-
cause of drought conditions,
but this year, the practice is
more widespread.

the country was in drought.
Now nearly three-quarterS
is, according to the latest
U.S. Drought Monitor map,
a weekly analysis of dryness
across the nation. The
parched conditions have
been aggravated by a dry,
mild winter and above-
normal temperatures.
Fires have charred more
than 1.8 million acres this
year in the U.S., and much
of Utah, Colorado, Wyoming
and Montana have been
under red-flag warnings for
extreme fire danger
In Colorado, where hun-
dreds of homes have been
destroyed by flames in the
past month, firefighters
have said they don't have
the time or resources to
stand watch over public
events. At least nine public
fireworks displays have
been called off.

A lone shopper looks over displays filled with fireworks Saturday at the Olde Glory Fireworks store just north of Denver in
unincorporated Adams County, Colo. Widespread drought combined with warranted fears of wildfires are snumfng out some
Fourth of July festivities this year from Utah east to Indiana.

Forman said.
Forman was going to de-
liver the fireworks in
Bunker Hill, Ind., which had
scheduled a show Saturday
night following a parade, a
picnic and the local Little
League championships. In-
stead, Little League officials
in the town of 900 about 60
miles north of Indianapolis
canceled the show because
of the fire risk.
Carol Russell had been
looking forward to taking her
family to the fireworks show.
Her kids three teens and
a 9-year-old are growing
up, and she said this might
be the last year they thought
the display was cool.
"Tradition is a big deal for
us. It's like a big bubble
burst," Russell said.
Some states are grappling
with just how far they can go
in issuing bans. New Mexico
Gov Susana Martinez said
she considers fireworks a
risk that can be avoided, but
state law allows cities and
counties to ban only certain
classifications of fireworks
and where they can be used.

Dry conditions spark firework fearS
From Utah to Indiana, states, counties and towns are calling
off their annual festive fireworks out of fear that widespread
drought has created tinder-dry conditions and could spark a
fire. Experts say the widening drought was fueled by a dry,
mild winter and above-normal temperatures.

States have also clamped
down on all kinds of outdoor
fire hazards, including
campfires, smoking and use
of portable grills.
Paul Forman, who owns
Independence Fireworks
and Forman Blasters Py-
rotechnics in Peru, Ind.,
said he understands the

safety concerns, but his
business has been devas-
tated. Four customers
called off fireworks shows
this week, and he antici-
pated more cancellations
before the holiday. He said
his business had dropped
from about 50 customers a
day to a total of 11.

If Morsi succeeds, the Muslim
Brotherhood will likely be embold-
ened to press ahead with realizing
the longtime goal of making Egypt
an Islamic state. Otherwise the mil-
itary which has been reluctant to
giVe up the power it assumed after
Hosni Mubarak's ouster will con-
tinue its stranglehold on the country
for years, maybe decades, to come.
For Egypt's estimated 82 million
people, the prospect of a continuing
battle between the military and the
Brotherhood, the country's largest
political group, will only prolong the
political instability that has rocked
their nation since Mubarak's ouster
last year. Egyptians have seen the
initial euphoria following the revo-
lution turn into a wave of pessimism

amid a declining economy, rising
crime and a seemingly endless wave
of protests, strikes and sit-ins.
The yearning for stability was ex-
pressed by two prominent figures.

ElBaradei, Egypt's top democracy
advocate, tweeted it was time to re-
solve the thorny issues of the new
constitution, the president's powers
and legislation. "Now, the time for
building has come, to achieve the
revolution's goals," he said.
Gamal Eid, a well-known rights
lawyer and activist, saw in Morsi's
inauguration the chance for some-
one in power to be held account-
able. "Now the ball is in the
president's court after he became
the first elected president of Egypt.

crackdown the opposition
says has claimed more than
14,000 lives.
But even with Russia's
most explicit statement of
support yet for a political
transition in Syria, it is far
from certain the plan will
have any real effect in curb-

phrase in the agreement re-

giving the present govern-

veto power over each other.
Syrian opposition figures

notion of sharing in a tran-
sition with Assad, though
the agreement also re-
quires security force chiefs
and services to have the
confidence of the people.

CAIRO Islamist Mohammed
Morsi became Egypt's first freely
elected president on Saturday,
launching his four-year term with a
potentially dangerous quest to wrest
back from the military the full au-
thority of his office.
The outcome of the impending
battle between Egypt's first civilian
president and its powerful generals
will redraw the country's political
landscape after 60 years of de facto
military rule.

Special to the Chronicle

he Green Swamp is 560,000 acres of
history and wildlife. Four rivers orig-
inate in the swamp: Hillsborough, Peace,
Ocklawaha and Withlacoochee. These
rivers provide valuable drinking water for
Floridians. The swamp is located in five
counties: Pasco, Sumter, Lake, Hernando
and Polk.
The earliest human settlement of the
Green Swamp dates back to 6000 B.C. The
swamp provided abundant game and valu-
able resources for hunters and gatherers.
Hernando DeSoto a Spanish Conquista-
dor came through the area west of the
swamp on his 1539-42 expedition through
Florida, but avoided the mysterious vast-
ness of the Grleen swa npl btteGen
Swamp; they are descendants of the hogs
brought to feed DeSoto's army. Some of the
hogs escaped, adapted and spread through-
out the forests of Florida and the South-
eastern United States. Other fauna in the
sw ps include alligators, bald eagles, wild

The Second Seminole War (1835-42) was
a textbook example of guerrilla warfare by
the Seminoles against the United States.
The Green Swamp provided refuge for the
Seminoles and provided concealed "am-
bush positions." The U.S. forces had to try
many different tactics to defeat the Semi-
noles because of the "swamp and jungle-
like terrain" and the guerrilla-style warfare
being waged against them throughout Cen-
tral and South Florida.
Logging operations in the early 20th cen-
tury destroyed most of the centuries-old cy-
press trees, but some remain,
Hiking, canoeing, camping, fishing, bird
watching, hunting, and horseback riding
are popular activities that can be enjoyed.
The 1,400-mile Florida Trail goes through
the Green Swamp, and many miles of trails
are available through other tracts of the

sPr mitive campsites are situated along
the Florida Trail and at Colt Creek State
Park. The campsites along the Florida Trail
are free by permit. The best time to visit the
swamp is in the fall and winter: If you go in
the summer, be prepared due to the heat,

very best view of the city of San Fran-

For the next half of this viewing and
photographic adventure, go back across
the bridge into San Francisco on High-
way 101. Stay the course on 101, which,
after several miles, becomes Lombard
Street, the most crooked street in the
world. Looking straight ahead, before
you start down the sidewinder turns of
the famous Lombard Street, you can see
Telegraph Hill and its landmark, Coit
Tower, on the hill ahead. Lombard
Street leads to Coit Tower, where you get
another good look at the Golden Gate
Bridge while the fog rolls in, if you
are lucky. You will have witnessed a
most spectacular view of one of the
world's most beautiful structures, set in
a unique and unrivaled setting.
If you do this mini self-tour in the
morning, the next thing you'll probably
want is lunch. You couldn't be in a better
location. Retrace your drive on Lom-
bard Street to Columbus Street, where
you have the option of turning left or
right. Left on Columbus will take you
into the heart of the North Beach area,
where you will discover several blocks
of restaurant choices. If you
had turned right on Columbus,
you are only blocks away from
the famous Embarcadero -
San Francisco's renowned wa-
terfront, where there are
abundant dining choices, as
well as Ghirardelli Square
and other landmarks.

beginning in San Francisco, near the
Presidio, and stretching north to the

Sausalito, via U.S. 101.
The bridge was christened on May 27,

an important role in its appearance, par-
ticularly in pictures.
A good vantage point is at the turnout

Sailing the Aegean Sea on the Star Clipper was the trip of a lifetime for David and
Mary Waterfield of Sugarmill Woods. The Star Clipper is a 360-foot-tall mast sailing
ship. They spent three days in Istanbul, Turkey, before boarding the ship, and 10
days sailing the isles of Greece and Turkey, visiting such famous sights as Ephesus,
Patmos, Rhodes, Santorini and Mykonos, among others. The trip culminated with
three days in Athens. It was reported to be everything a sailor could ask for!

and mother were
both sick and only
weeks away from dying
when my niece went to my
father's bedside and asked
if she could have his house
when he "didn't
need it anymore.
She made sure
that her mother
was with her to
witness the ques-
tion and answer.
My father suf-
fered from de-
mentia for
several years, and
it was no surprise
that he agreed -..A
that "Rhoda
could have the ANN
house. But his MAIL
will was made out
many years be-
fore, and it left everything to
be equally divided between
his eight children.
After my parents died,
Rhoda put pressure on her
mother to get the house.
When I questioned Rhoda's
actions, her mother de-
fended her. When my
brother said we were going
to sell the house, Rhoda told
us we could sell it only to
her and at a greatly reduced
My father intended to
leave everything to his chil-
dren, not his grandchildren.
This has split our family
apart, and I don't know if we
ever will get over the hard
feelings that Rhoda has

caused. She feels no re-
morse and still believes she
should get the family home
because Dad "promised" it
to her: I say she gets nothing.
More importantly, she never
should have gone to my fa-
ther on his
deathbed to
begin with. What
o t do you say? -
Split Families
Dear Split:
Rhoda sounds
like a vulture. If
your father had a
s.legal will, the at-
*torney (not the
family members)
should inform
Rhoda that she is
IE'S not entitled to
.BOX the house or the
proceeds from its
sale. Of course, if
the maj ority of your siblings
choose to sell her the house,
anyway, there's not much
you can do. Your letter
should serve as a reminder
to our readers to put their
wishes in writing while they
are of sound mind and not
leave the door open to mer-
cenary relatives who try to
take advantage.
Happy Canada Day to our
readers north of the border

delays in receiving some salary
payments. Team spokesman
Philippe Maertens said he be-
lieved they had been paid, "and if
not, there is a reason for it." He
called it a "private issue."
Brushing aside the team's is-
sues, Cancellara said he was fo-
cusing "on what I have to do -
and that's riding my bike." He said
the victory, which he dedicated to
his pregnant wife, was doubly re-
warding because he broke his col-
larbone in the Tour of Flanders in
April and wasn't sure he'd be at
his best for the Tour prologue.
Cancellara has now earned the
leader's yellow jersey for 22 days
in his career, equaling the marks
of other Tour greats, including
two-time winner Laurent Fignon
of France, American triple cham-
pion Greg Lemond and Dutchman
Joop Zoetemelk.

other Tour title favorite: Bradley
Wiggins, aiming to become the
first Briton to win the Tour, was 7
seconds behind in second.
Cadel Evans embarked on his
title defense in solid form, finishing
13th but importantly, 10 seconds
back of Wiggins, who many see as
the main threat to the Australian's
hopes of a repeat. Cancellara is un-
questionably the world's best time-
trial rider, but isn't considered a
Tour contender because he often
struggles in the mountains.
"What a great opening -
again!" Cancellara said. "I did the
most I could. It's not always easy. I
always do the maximum ... It's a
great feeling and this certainly
takes some of the pressure off."
The Tour start offered a wel-
come return to racing three
weeks and 2,168 miles criss-
crossing France, nosing into

Switzerland, and scaling climbs in
the Alps and Pyrenees before the
July 22 finish on Paris' Champs-
Elysees. Two other individual
time-trials await.
RadioShack, built on the re-
mains of teams that Armstrong led
to a record seven Tour victories,
has faced a rough patch.
Its current leader, Andy Schleck,
is staying home to nurse a spinal in-
jury he sustained in a crash in the
Criterium du Dauphine this month;
team manager Johan Bruyneel -
Armstrong's longtime mentor is
staying away to avoid being a dis-
traction to the team and the race
over a U.S. anti-doping case target-
ing him, Armstrong and four others.
In a further embarrassment, En-

Brendon de Jonge watches his drive from the fifth tee during the third round of
the AT&T National golf tournament Saturday at Congressional Country Club in
Bethesda, Md.

A few volunteers, tournament staff
and club members tagged along after
Woods, and provided about the only
noise of the round. They watched him
and Van Pelt get off to a quick start,
and then match pars on the back nine
to get close to the lead.
"I told Tiger that was a Bo Van Pelt
crowd, so I was used to that," Van Pelt
said. "I was very comfortable with 10
or 15 people watching me play golf.
No, it was just nice to get it in. I think
we're all fortunate that nobody got
hurt out here last night. It's a credit to
the grounds staff that they got this golf
course ready. I'm sure if you saw pic-
tures of what it looked like at mid-
night, the fact that we played golf
today is a minor miracle."
De Jonge was at ?-under 206 and

will play in the final group with Van
Pelt and Woods, who is going for his
third win of the year. Woods won the
AT&T National the last time it was at
Congressional in 2009.
Billy Hurley, the Navy veteran who
grew up in the area, had a 66 and was
two shots back, along with Mahan,
who stumbled to a 73.
Sunday might be a return to nor-
mal, at least with the noise, especially
with Woods in the final group.
The final round will be threesomes
going off both sides, giving the grounds
crew even more time to clean up the
course. For Saturday, it did well to put
chainsaws to the toppled trees and col-
lect the hundreds of branches scat-
tered across the fairways and pile
them up outside the ropes.

BETHESDAMd. -Saturday at Con-
greSSional was not the first time Tiger
WOOds has played before so few fans.
There were those 6 a.m. practice
rounds at the British Open. Or the oc-
CaSional PGA Tour event where fans
were evacuated because of a thun-
derstorm and hardly anyone returned
at twilight when play resumed. There
Surely was the odd junior event he
played when he was 8.
But teeing off in the late afternoon
at the AT&T National, on a steamy but
sun-filled day on a fabled course in a
gOlf-mad area like Washington?
WOOds had the largest crowd of the
day, even though it never topped 100
people. Brendon de Jonge, who had a
2-under 69 to take a one-shot lead,
had as many birdies (three) as people
in his gallery on a strange, silent Sat-
urday at Congressional.
A violent wind storm overnight that
toppled dozens of trees and littered
the course with limbs forced tourna-
ment officials to keep spectators and
all but the essential volunteers away
from Congressional for the third
round. Considering the amount of de-
bris, it was amazing they even played.
"I've played in front of people like
this," Woods said. "But not generally
for an 18-hole competitive round."
De Jonge was steady in the swelter-
ing COnditions for a third straight
round in the 60s, which gave his first
54-hole lead on the PGA Tour. One
shot behind were Woods (67), Bo Van
Pelt (67) and S.Y. Noh (69).
De Jonge, a South African going for
his first PGA Tour win, made his final
birdie on the 12th hole with a wedge
Out of the rough that climbed over a
ridge and settled about 12 feet behind
the cup. It was worthy of applause,
but there was only one person in the
gallery to see it Kandi Mahan, the
Wife of Hunter Mahan.
Indeed, this was a day like few oth-
eTS On the PGA Tour.

200 backstroke

at US triah

OMAHA, Neb. Ryan
Lochte got started on a busy
night at the U.S. Olympic
swimming trials by winning
the 200-meter backstroke
Saturday night.
Next up: another show-
down with Michael Phelps.
Lochte was sixth at the
first turn, but the 27-year-old
Floridian quickly moved to-
ward the front and took the
lead for good with a brilliant
flip turn off the final wall.
Pulling away, he won with a
time of 1 minute, 54.54 sec-
onds, second-fastest in the
world this year behind
Japan's Ryosuke Irie.
Lochte was assured of
four individual events in
London. He finished second
in the 200 individual medley
Saturday as Phelps beat
him to the wall.
Tyler Clary took the sec-
ond spot in 1:54.88, giving
him two individual races at
the Olympics. He has
bounced back just fine from
the disappointment of fin-
ishing third behind Lochte
and Phelps in the 400 IM.
Rebecca Soni also locked
up a second individual race
in London, cruising to an
easy win in the 200 breast-
stroke. She was slow off the
blocks and made the first
turn in fourth place, but
there was never any real
doubt about this one. Soni
surged to the lead on the
second lap and steadily
pulled away, winning with
the fastest time in the world
this year, 2:21.13.
"I'm always a little nery-
ous to push it too soon. I felt
great the first 100, nice and
long," said Soni, who'll be
looking to defend her 200
title in London. "I know I've
trained the hardest I can so
if I can hopefully bring
home a gold, that would be
amazing. If I can get back to
my best time, that would
also be great. I'm just going
to have fun with it."

pean Championship final.

Both teams go into Sun-
day's final at the Olympic
Stadium promising to
maintain the tactics that
have brought them here.
Spain coach Vicente del
Bosque promised an at-
tacking lineup comprised
of three forwards, which
did little to clear up
whether Spain will use its
midfield-heavy attack or
field a single striker
He also brushed off crit-
icism Spain's attack lacks
the cutting edge it had dur-
ing the team's Euro 2008
and 2010 World Cup
"We have more of an ob-
ligation to attack than to
defend because we have
players with capabilities to
do so," Del Bosque said on
Saturday. "Football moves
forward and there has
been a change of players in
the team, but the nucleus
remains the same. We're
playing the same way we
always have."
Cesc Fabregas and Fer-
nando Torres have shared
the most of the responsibil-
ity for Spain's attack. David
Silva has looked fatigue
and there is speculation he
could make way for Pedro
Rodriguez, who has been
impressive in his two ap-
pearances off the bench.
Italy coach Cesare Pran-
delli has meanwhile prom-
ised to maintain Italy's
current style, which has

not only helped it to the
final but has come as a sur-
prise compared to its nor-
mally defensive ways.
"A team that has (An-
drea) Pirlo, (Claudio)
Marchisio and (Riccardo)
Montolivo is a team that
wants to play football,
there's no doubt," Del
Bosque said. "It's an open
final because we've both
followed parallel styles to
get here. Our styles of play
have been very similar, I
don't see much of a

they've got better as the
tournament went on and
they deserve to be in the

the final) playing a certain
way and I imagine they will
maintain it for this last

Birthday The possibility to increase your earnings in the
year ahead looks exceptionally good. If you put your mind
to it, you should do extremely well in financial areas,
whether you are working for another or are self-employed.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) You're someone who must
have purpose to your life. In order to feel gratified, get in-
volved in meaningful objectives that make you feel you've
done something worthwhile.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) It's not surprising you need some
variety in life at times, and it might be one of those days. If
you find yourself bored, initiate doing something different
with friends.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Although it may be up to you
to design the blueprint for finalizing a matter that meets
everyone's desires, you'll have all the know-how to do so
right at your fingertips.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Ideas and concepts that are

significant to you are also relevant to persons with whom
you are involved, so consult each and every party before
putting anything into action.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If your financial picture looks
secure at this time, it's OK to go ahead and do something
worthwhile that makes you happy. In fact, make it a priority.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Independence is always
of utmost importance to you, so don't allow anybody to plan
an agenda for you if you can help it. Do what you want
when you want to do it.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be party to events, but
don't try to manipulate everything. You would be so much
happier allowing matters to unfold as they will, letting things
take their own course.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If you've had a yen lately to
touch base with two friends in particular, it would be nice if
you could make this possible. Try to do what you can to

arrange things.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) If someone throws down the
gauntlet, you're not likely to ignore the challenge. Your
competitive spirit is more easily aroused than usual today,
and you'll take the bait.
Aries (March 21-April 19) In order to satisfy both your
mental and physical restlessness, some type of rigorous
activity will be required. Do something fun, such as swim-
ming or hitting the tennis court.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) Although you rather enjoy
being a loner at times, you might do yourself some good if
you get involved in a few joint endeavors. Operate where
you feel the most fulfilled.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) Try to bring better balance
into your life if you can, by taking stock of your recent af-
fairs or activities, for example. If you've been working too
hard, get out and have some fun.

We don't really believe those cliches about

But that's not what they were cheering
about in Pennsylvania last week.

Good. But this is a tragic neces-
sity, not a street festival.
I may "un-friend" the next Facebook pal
who voices hope that Sandusky will have
done to him forcibly, in prison what he
did to children. The same goes for many who
write that he should be beaten on a regular
basis, even killed, by fellow inmates.
It's as if they're saying, "The Constitution's
ban on cruel and unusual punishment won't
let us do what Sandusky deserves. Fortu-
nately, we have plenty of civic-minded, coura-
geous sadists and sociopaths in prison to deal
with guys like him."

One of the strangest Senate debates I ever

Since this year's session ended
and the special session on the re-
districting do-over ended, I've par-
ticipated in a variety of activities.

My calendar likely looks different
from many of my colleagues due to
my love of environmental issues, my
upcoming retirement and the dif-
ferences in our districts.
Soon after returning
to Polk County, I was in-
vited to participate in
the FWCC Youth fishing
Tournament at Tenoroc,
a state-owned property

-1 national opportunities for
residents and visitors.

RIDA whom were just being
CES introduced to casting a

During this and any other public
event, I am asked to look into a va-
riety of issues. On this occasion, it
was the need to pump additional
water to supplement the lake levels
to support recreational fishing.
The next event was a hike in the
Lake Wales Forest. I was honored to
have a trail named after me a
decade ago by then-Agriculture
Commissioner Bob Crawford for my
work to expand conservation and
recreation areas. On a beautiful
Saturday morning, a few dozen en-
thusiastic trekkers hiked eight
miles of the Paula Dockery Trail.
On this day, I was asked to look at
changing policy to allow hammock-
ing in state parks.

My recent speaking engagements
included giving the commencement
speech at the last graduation cere-
mony for the Lakeland campus of
USF, which was bittersweet after 25
years of USF's presence in Polk
County. That the students and fac-
ulty requested me as their speaker
was incredibly touching.
Legislators can't possibly fulfill
all the speaking requests we re-
ceive, but I try to honor many of
them. They are as varied as they are
interesting, with everyone from the
senior citizens at the Florida Pres-
byterian Home, to the wonderful
ladies at the Lakeland Republican
Club, to the men and women who
meet at the crack of dawn at the Cit-
rus Center Kiwanis Club, to the di-
verse evening crowd at the
Dixieland Homeowners Associa-
tion, to the intimate roundtable dis-
cussion among politically active
men and women of ABW, a profes-
sional business group.
To keep up with developments in
the district and constituents doing
great things to improve the quality
of life and provide needed services,
it's important to be out in the dis-
trict listening and learning. Re-
cently, I attended the Flag Day
celebration at AMI Kids and dis-
covered they had 30 days to close
shop because their funding was
being cut. This is a highly success-
ful day program for troubled youths
in danger of entering the juvenile
justice system. The Polk legislative

Another recent event was a

bus lot for Citrus Connection, Polk's
mass transit system. Thanks to a
grant, this transit hub with restroom
facilities will be built near the en-

bus service to Tampa and Orlando.
During the summer, many groups
and associations present awards to
legislators who were instrumental
on issues of importance to their
members. I was fortunate to be
lauded by several wonderful
groups. Student government at USF
Tampa recognized Sen. Mike
Fasano and me for listening to the
students and working in their best
interests when they felt powerless
in the USF Polytech independence
issue. This heartfelt thank-you was
very special to me.
The Florida Justice Association,
representing lawyers with a focus
on access to the courts, presented
me with the President's Award. The
Florida Wildlife Federation gave its
Legislator of the Year awards to
Sen. Dennis Jones and me. And the
Florida Association of Counties
honored me with the Doc Myers
Lifetime County Advocate Award
for my efforts to defend the concept
of Home Rule.

It was almost 20 years
ago that we last went hik-
ing on some major moun-
tains. I went to a Rotary
convention in the mid-
1990s in Calgary and we
spent the next week hik-
ing in the Canadian Rock-
ies in really gorgeous
places like Banff, Jasper
and Lake Louise.
In an effort to build my
hiking confidence and
overcome my fear of tum-
bling down a mountain
and breaking my neck, I
had purchased an expen-

This past week, I dug
around on the bottom of
the closet and pulled out
the boots because we
were headed to the Grand
Canyon. Youngest son Jeff
was getting married in
Las Vegas and we planned
to extend the event for a
short break in the cool
mountains of Arizona and
As a former Boy Scout, I
was proud that I was "pre-
pared" for hiking around
the mountains and could
still find the boots. While I
was still fearful of heights,
my lucky boots would pro-
vide me with safe equip-
ment for experiencing the
treacherous cliffs of the
Grand Canyon.
So that's how I found
myself driving five hours
out of Vegas to the glori-
ous North Rim of the
Grand Canyon. Less than
10 minutes after checking
into the lodge, I had laced
up the boots and we were
off walking along a path
that had steep drops to the
canyon floor. Just one

I was so glad I had the
proper footgear
It was about one mile
into the first hike that I
began to feel a small
"giddy-up" in my right leg.
Since that long-ago trip to
Calgary, Dr. Andy Petrella
of Crystal River had done
some work putting my
knee back in shape, so I
thought this might be a
minor complication.
Soon the "giddy-up" be-
came a "flippety-flop" -
and Iknew something was
seriously going wrong.

conservatives won a sub-
day. The physics of
American politics actions pro-
voking reactions continues to
move the crucial debate, about
the nature of the American
regime, toward conser-
vatism. Chief Justice
John Roberts has
served this cause.

Conservatives, dis- VOI(
taught about the sur- ~
vival of the individual mandate,
are missing the considerable con-
solation prize they won when the
Supreme Court rejected a consti-
tutional rationale for the mandate
- Congress' rationale that was
pregnant with rampant statism.
The case challenged the court
to fashion a judicially adminis-
trable principle that limits Con-
gress' power to act on the mere
pretense of regulating interstate
commerce. At least Roberts got
the court to embrace emphatic
language rejecting the Com-
merce clause rationale for pe-
nalizing the inactivity of not
buying insurance:
"The power to regulate com-
merce presupposes the existence
of commercial activity to be regu-
lated. ... The individual mandate,
however, does not regulate exist-
ing commercial activity. It instead
compels individuals to become
active in commerce by purchas-
ing a product, on the ground that
their failure to do so affects inter-
state commerce. Construing the
Commerce Clause to permit Con-
gress to regulate individuals pre-
cisely because they are doing
nothing would open a new and
potentially vast domain to con-
gressional authority. ... Allowing
Congress to justify federal regula-
tion by pointing to the effect of in-
action on commerce would bring

countless decisions an individual
could potentially make within the
scope of federal regulation, and
- under the government's theory
- empower Congress to make
those decisions for him."
If the mandate had been up-
held under the Com-
merce Clause, the
court would have deci-
sively construed this
-'clause so permissively
as to give Congress an
essentially unlimited
police power the
power to mandate,
proscribe and regulate
behavior for whatever
SWill Congress deems a pub-
elic benefit. Instead, the
IER court rejected the
CES Obama administra-
Stion's Commerce
Clause doctrine. The court re-
mains clearly committed to this
previous holding: "Under our
written Constitution... the limita-
tion of congressional authority is
not solely a matter of legislative

By persuading the court to re-
ject a Commerce Clause rationale
for president's signature act, the
conservative legal insurgency
against Obamacare has won a
huge victory for the long haul.
This victory will help revive a
venerable tradition of America's
political culture, that of viewing

congressional actions with a skep-
tical constitutional squint, search-
ing for congruence with the
Constitution's architecture of
enumerated powers. By rejecting
the Commerce Clause rationale,
Thursday's decision reaffirmed
the Constitution's foundational
premise: Enumerated powers are
necessarily limited because, as
Chief Justice John Marshall said,
"the enumeration presupposes
something not enumerated."
When Nancy Pelosi, asked
where the Constitution author-
ized the mandate, exclaimed "Are
you serious? Are you serious?"
she was utterly ingenuous. Peo-
ple steeped in Congress' culture
of unbridled power find it incom-
prehensible that the Framers
fashioned the Constitution as a
bridle. Now, Thursday's episode
in the continuing debate about
the mandate will reverberate to
conservatism's advantage. By
sharpening many Americans'
constitutional consciousness, the
debate has resuscitated the salu-
tary practice of asking what was,
until the mid-1960s, the threshold
question regarding legislation. It
concerned what James Q. Wilson
called the "legitimacy barrier": Is
it proper for the federal govern-
ment to do this? Conservatives
can rekindle the public's interest
in this barrier by building upon
the victory Roberts gave them in
positioning the court for stricter
scrutiny of congressional actions
under the Commerce Clause.
Any democracy, even one with a
written and revered constitution,
ultimately rests on public opinion,
which is shiftable sand. Conserva-
tives understand the patience req-
uisite for the politics of democracy
- the politics of persuasion. Elec-
tions matter most; only they can
end Obamacare. But in Roberts'
decision, conservatives can see
the court has been persuaded to
think more as they do about the
constitutional language that has
most enabled the promiscuous ex-
pansion of government.

Renewing a driver's license: A story in two parts

Help for victimS
Many crimes are reported in the news-
papers and on TY and though they state
the facts, helpful information for the vic-
tims is left out.
Victim Compensation is available in
every state and though money is set aside
only for this purpose, not enough people
are aware of the help available to them.
In Florida, crime victims have 28 pages
of rights; yet, you so often hear "the crim-
inals have all the rights." The difference
is criminals have everyone from the SA
to their attorney to other public entities
telling them what their rights are and no
one is willing to let the victims know
where to get help and to find out what
their rights are!
I'd like to change that.
Crimes covered are hit and run, do-
mestic violence, DUI, assault, murder
and more. Help is available for medical,
dental, counseling, lost wages, out-of-
pocket expenses, burial and more.
The criteria is:
Report to law enforcement within 24
hours of the incident
cooperate with law enforcement and
have had no part in the crime.
H have never been convicted of a
forcible felony.
There is a special $500 fund for those
60 or older and/or disabled that allows
these victims to recoup property dam-
aged or stolen that would alter their day-
to-day living.
If you have been a crime victim within
the past two years and have questions or
if you might qualify for victim compensa-
tion, you have several options:
contact your local sheriff's office or
police department.
contact Florida's Victim Compensa-
tion directly at 850-414-3300.
SContact The Center for Victim Rights
at 352-628-6481.



C4 sUNDAY, JULY 1, 2012



the last couple of decades
sitting behind a desk.
Every rock was a jab to my
feet. Every boulder was a
sting. Every sharp edge was
the cut of a knife.
The Boy Scout motto of
"Be Prepared" had let me
down. While I obviously did
not tumble to my death in my
ballet slippers, my feet hurt
for days. And despite what
my wife might tell you, it is
not true that I crawled on my
hands and knees along some
of the more narrow passages
along the North Rim. (Al-
though my knees are pretty
scraped up.)
I would have been better
off using an old pair of ten-
nis sneakers.
My new hiking motto is to
be less prepared. And on the
bright side of things, if I get
really good at being less pre-
pared, I might even consider
a run for public office.

session. It seemed fitting to
invite my parents, who live
near the location of the cer-
emony in Pinellas County.
To spend time with con-
stituents who request a
meeting, we schedule office
days. In a typical office day,
we might meet with individ-
uals or groups on topics that
range from education to
waste management, from

water to child protection
services, from roads to pris-
ons and every conceivable
topic you can imagine. This
is really the crux of being a
representative, meeting
with and listening to those
you represent.
Legislators have different
relationships with the
media. Some enjoy talking
to the press and return

phone calls, and some either
don't get the calls or choose
not to take them. I try to re-
turn all media inquiries.
Some days I receive a dozen
and other days none, de-
pending on the issues of the
day. Oftentimes, TV crews
will show up with little no-
tice, wanting a quick sound-
bite. Radio shows and TV
panels are usually arranged

in advance, and I'm a fre-
quent guest on each.
Each legislator has his/her
own style and schedule, but
we all try to maximize our
time in the district to meet
with constituents and be re-
sponsive to requests to share
our views and listen to oth-
ers. Some of us even use so-
cial media and have our own
columns to communicate

and educate. At least for the
next 132 days.

Se~f~ SUNDAY, JULY 1, 2012


Special to the Chronicle
comes the first state in the nation to
rebrand the state's Unemployment
Compensation Benefits Program to
the Reemployment Assistance Pro-
gram, beginning July 1.
The legislation allowing for the
name change focuses attention on
the true purpose of the program:
finding employment for Floridians,
while also providing more than
$500 million in tax relief to Florida
businesses by reducing the unem-

ployment tax for employers. These
positive changes for Florida's econ-
omy were two of Gov Rick Scott's
top economic development goals
and were achieved this past Leg-
islative Session.
"This transformation to Reem-
ployment Assistance is one of my
top priorities for economic devel-
opment and job creation," said
Scott. "In addition to more accu-
rately reflecting this program's goal
to get Floridians back to work, busi-
nesses and employers statewide
will also receive more than $500

million in tax relief."
House Bill 7027, which passed
during the 2012 Legislative Session
and was signed by Governor Rick
Scott on March 28, renames the Un-
employment Compensation Pro-
gram as the Reemployment
Assistance Program, emphasizing
the job search activities and reem-
ployment services offered by
Florida's workforce partners to job-
less claimants receiving benefits.
Florida is the first state in the na-
tion to change Unemployment Com-
pensation to Reemployment

Assistance. Additionally:
aChanging the name of the pro-
gram does NOT change access to
benefits provided by the state of
Florida or the federal government.
HClaimants will still be able to
access benefits and file their claim
the same way as they did previously,
by going online at www.florida-
jobs.org, 24 hours a day, seven days
a week.
SThe legislation does not further
extend benefit eligibility.

Lawrence Speidell, chief investment officer for Frontier Market Asset Managment, poses for a picture April 2 near his offces in La Jolla, Calif.
Looking to spread their bets in case of another market drop, investors are buying oddball assets and heading to risky corners of the globe.

Seeking elus~ive 'alpha,

AP Business Wr-iter

NEW YORK You can leap off a moun-
tainside in extreme skiing, kick and claw to
near death in extreme fighting and twist
yourself into a pretzel in extreme yoga. Why
not turn investing into an adventure sport?
Professional money managers are scouring
the world for oddball assets, desperate to
find anything that moves to its own beat
rather than rising and falling with everything
else in the financial markets.
They are putting money into racehorses,
stakes in lawsuits, old coins, even the copy-
rights to old pop songs. One fund manager
bought stock in a beer company called
Bralirwa in Rwanda, where tribal rivalry led
to a genocide that left 800,000 people dead in
"Rwanda triggers a lot of bad memories, so
people don't even think of investing there,
but there's huge opportunity," says Lawrence
Speidell of Frontier Market Select Fund,

investors scoukr the globe to beat the stock indexes

which also owns stock in an Iraqi soft drink
bottler and a Palestinian telephone company.
Bralirwa stock has risen 150 percent since
Speidell bought it early last year. But the real
appeal is that it did so in a steady, calm way,
disregarding events that have made the rest
of the world's stock markets bumpy and
frightening, like the Japanese tsunami and
European debt troubles.
And Bralirwa keeps bucking the headlines.
Last month, while stocks in the U.S., Europe,
Asia and Latin America fell because of fear that
Greece would leave the euro and Spain needed
a bailout, Bralirwa rose 6.5 percent. Even
Apple, a stock known to shrug off scary head-
lines itself, got swept along in the downdraft.
In trading jargon, the Rwandan company
and some of Speidell's other exotic holdings
are "uncorrelated." They have a tendency to
move to their own rhythm, a sort of Holy Grail
in investing.
Discover enough of these assets and a
money manager might claim to have
achieved "alpha," an ability to beat the Stan-

dard & Poor's 500 or other indexes without
taking on more risk.
Convincing investors of the claim is an-
other matter. For years, ordinary investors
trusted their fund managers, paying them
tens of billions of dollars in annual fees. But
they've grown skeptical. They've pulled more
than $400 billion from U.S. stock mutual
funds since 2008.
Not only did the managers fail to protect
against losses in the financial crisis that year,
but too much of what they've bought since
seems to ride up and down with the stock
Not lawsuits, though. In exchange for a cut
of the winnings, funds have sprung up to help
pay for suits brought by wives in divorce
court, by 9/11 cleanup crews against New
York City for health problems and, in one
case, by two foreign businessmen in a two-
decade dispute with the republic of Georgia
for reneging on a gas-pipeline deal.


nonprofit organi-
zation (NP) is
much like starting a for-

efits will apply to both the NP and
to the sources of revenue that will
fund the new NE

Legal structure
Incorporating the NP is an im-
portant decision. If you are to entice
the appropriate people to your
board, protecting them with the cor-
porate veil is crucial. Providing the
volunteer officers and directors
with liability insurance is rapidly
becoming a necessity
Once corporate standing is se-
lected, Articles of incorporation
and bylaws need to be written. They
detail the rules, regulations and op-
erational processes of the NE
The last piece of paperwork im-
portant to the new NP is requesting
a tax exemption from IRS. This is
particularly important for future
funding and efficient use of avail-
able funds. If IRS grants the ex-
emption, a letter will follow
confirming the exemption. This
document must be kept in a perma-
nent file.
After all of the above has been
completed, there will be annual

governmental filings. Do them
promptly as they are an integral el-
ement to maintaining the legal life

ask is, will there ne any other NPs
in the community offering the same
or similar services?
If duplication or overlapping of
service is present, the new NP may
not survive. It may experience lim-
ited success due to competition.
There is a potential solution to
avoid this dilemma. If partnering of
two NPs will lessen the battle for
funding/donations or eliminate
service replication, both might sur-

Submitting the formal documents
begins with state and federal gov-

emerging economies fell 20
percent or more last year
while the S&P 500 gained
2.1percent, if you count div-

id other popular diversi-
fi cation move, buying com-
modities, used to work.
When stock prices were
falling, it was often because
commodity prices were ris-
ing. Buying commodities at
the right time handed in-
vestors big profits.
But in a United Nations
rmipsr i Markch, two econ -
prices over 16 years found
they increasingly move up
and down with U.S. stocks
instead of in opposite direc
tions as in the past.
In May, the S&P 500 fell 6
percent and commodities
lost 9 percent.
For the lockstep moves,
blame the so-called wisdom
of the crowd. No sooner
does an investor discover a
far-off place or obscure
asset moving to its own
rhythm, than ever one else
seems to show up with fist-
fuls of dollars.
The U.N. report on com-
modities, for instance, notes
that investors, including
many betting with 401(k)
plans, had $450 billion in
commodity funds last year,
up from less than $10 billion
in 2000. That makes prices
more likely to gyrate up and
down with greed and fear
surging across the globe in
reaction to news, the same
as stocks.
If you're rich enough, you
can always turn to the folks
who claim to have more
alpha than anyone else, the
managers of hedge funds.
The appeal of these exclu-
sive investing vehicles is
that they can bet markets
will fall as well as rise, and
often use borrowed money
to do so, which provides
leverage. For access to their

Veterans may apply
for fee waiver
partment of Business and Pro-
fessional Regulation (DBPR)
encourages military veterans
who have been honorably dis-
charged within the past 24
months to apply for a new licen-
sure fee waiver available
through the department.
As of July 1, the DBPR will
have the ability to waive initial
licensure fees for military veter-
ans under a new law that
passed during the 2012 Leg-
islative session. The waivers
could save veterans anywhere
from a few hundred dollars to
more than a thousand dollars,
depending on the license type.
"W~e want to encourage veter-
ans who may be thinking about
starting a business or getting a
professional license in Florida to
apply for this waiver," said Sec-
retary Ken Lawson. "This is our
way of saying 'thank you' to the
veterans who have already sac-
rificed so much to protect and
defend our nation.
Through HB 517, the initial li-
cense fee, initial application fee
and initial unlicensed activity fee
will be waived for veterans re-
turning from service, provided
the veteran applies for licensure
within 24 months of being hon-
orably discharged. The law will

In lawsuit investing, a fund

money back with profit.

AP Technology Wr-iter

NEW YORK A scruffy, young
Steve Jobs worked at Atari before
he founded Apple. "Pong," one of
the world's first video games, was
born there, as was "Centipede," a
classic from the era of quarter-
guzzling arcade machines. "Call of
Duty" creator Activision was
started by four of Atari's former
game developers.
The iconic video game company
turns 40 years old this week, much
slimmer these days as it tries to
stay relevant in the age of "Angry
Birds" and "Words With Friends."
But Atari's influence on today's
video games is pervasive.
Although it wasn't the first com-
pany to make video games, Atari
was the first to make a lasting im-
pression on an entire generation.
At arcades or at video game
bars such as Barcade in the trendy
Williamsburg section of Brooklyn
- nostalgic patrons still gather
around such Atari classics as "As-
teroids," "Joust" and "Centipede."
The Atari 2600, launched in
1977, was the first video game con-
sole in millions of homes, long be-
fore the Nintendo Entertainment
System (1985), Sony's PlayStation
(1994) and Microsoft's Xbox (2001).
Today's younger iPhone gamers
might not remember how "Pong,"
that simple, two-dimensional riff
on Ping-Pong, swept across living
rooms and arcades in the 1970s.
But they might recognize ele-
ments of it in easy-to-learn, hard-
to-master games based on simple
physics among them, "Angry
"For tens of millions of Gen X-
ers, or kids who grew up in Amer-
ica in the '70s and '80s, Atari is a
cultural icon, an intrinsic part of
childhood," says Scott Steinberg,
tech analyst and author of "The
Modern Parent's Guide to Kids
and Video Games."
"Pong,") he adds, was in some
ways the very first social video
game, one designed to play in
bars, at home or at an arcade,
while spectators crowded around
to watch the action.
Launched in 1972 from Atari's
Silicon Valley headquarters,
"Pong" featured a basic black-and-
white screen (that's black and
white only, no shades of gray
here), divided by a dotted line.
Short white lines on either side
stood in for paddles. Two players
controlled them and tried to get a
moving dot- the ball -past their
With "Pong," Atari introduced
video games to the masses just as
Apple and Microsoft ushered in
the personal computer era by
bringing computers to people's
desktops in the 1980s.
"It makes me think that I am
getting really old," says Nolan
Bushnell, the co-founder of Atari.
"I'm 69, which means I was 29
when I founded Atari. It seems re-
ally young in retrospect."

Activision, which now makes
such hit games as "Call of Duty"
and "Diablo III," was founded in
1979 by four disgruntled Atari
game designers who wanted more
recognition for their work.

It doesn't take much effort these
days to see 20-something entre-
preneurs in technology. Mark
Zuckerberg was just 19 when he
started Facebook in his Harvard
dorm room. But back in the early
'70s, Bushnell said, "no one in
their 20s started companies. In
some ways it paved the way for
Apple, Microsoft and those guys."
Bushnell said Atari succeeded
early on because it nurtured ideas
from its engineers and computer
"We dominated not because of
our manufacturing and marketing
prowess but because of creativity,"
Bushnell says. "The lasting legacy:
That creativity is a real weapon.
And in some ways Apple has
shown that as well."
Jobs was just 19 when Atari
hired him as a technician, making
$5 an hour. He worked the night
shift because many of his co-work-
ers didn't get along with him and
didn't appreciate his refusal to
wear deodorant, according to Wal-
ter Isaacson's recent biography of
the late Apple chief executive.
He wasn't there for long he
left the company in 1974 to travel
to India and co-founded Apple
two years later, in 1976.

Iconic Atari turns 40, tries to stay relevant

WOman behind

recalk its birth

AP Technology Wr-iter

NEW YORK -Dona Bailey
was working as a computer
programmer at General Mo-
tors when she heard the Pre-
tenders song "Space
Invader" and fell in love
with it. The year was 1980.
She had no clue about
video games.
A friend heard her say
that she liked the song,
and he got really excited.
He told her there was a
"Space Invaders" game at a
bar nearby. They went to
lunch so she could see what
that song was about.
"He gave me a quarter
and I lost all my lives be-
fore I could even figure
out what I was supposed
do on the screen," she says.
"But I got really intrigued."
That's how she came to
join Atari, the company that
cemented the video game
industry in the 1970s and
early 1980s with "Pong,"
and thanks in part to Bai-
ley, "Centipede." Though
she stayed only two years,
Bailey left her mark as one
of the rare female pro-
grammers at Atari.
The idea of the game ap-
pealed to Bailey, so she
began work on the "Cen-
tipede" project. She was
the software engineer on
the four-person team.
There were no books, no tu-
torials, "no place to go when
you needed help," she says.
"Centipede" came out in
1981. To play, you popped in
a quarter and used the ar-
cade's joystick to move your
character at the bottom of
the screen. You shoot the
centipede as it winds its
way down the screen, along
with the occasional spider.
"I always thought it was
really beautiful, like a shim-
mering jewel when you
walked into the arcade "
Bailey says.
Bailey worked on one
other game after "Cen-
tipede," but it never came
out. Because processors
were so limited at the time,
she couldn't make the game
look and do all the things
she wanted. She left Atari
soon after that, at 26.
Today, Bailey teaches
rhetoric and writing at the
University of Arkansas at
Little Rock.

Making pools safe for animals

synonymous with summer fun,
and with the "dog days" of sum-
mer upon us, pools provide a welcome
relief. We all know that tak-
ing precautions is essential
when it comes to children
around pools, but we often
overlook the fact that pools
can be deadly for pets and
wildlife. Animals from
squirrels to lizards to frogs
and snakes, fledgling birds, s
and even our favorite pets Joan Br
- can find themselves in a FO
pool with no way to escape.
Even if your pet is no FI
stranger to being in the LIV
pool, getting out of a pool is
not always easy for animals even if
they have been shown where
the pool's stairs are located. Unfortu-
nately, tens of thousands of pets and
other animals drown in backyard
swimming pools every year in the U.S.
alone. Animal pool drownings are
tragic, because they are preventable.
A few simple pool precautions can
help dramatically lower the danger to
SWhen building a pool, design lounge
ledges along the sides just below the

water's surface, providing shallow areas
from which animals can easily escape.
HBuild a fence around the pool.
SInstall one or more
water-exit devices or small
ramps to assist animalsin
climbing out of the pool.
Place these buoyant devices
Sin the water along the pool's
edge to allow animals to get
out on their own.
SPlace knotted nylon
ropes along the sides, secur-
adshaw ing them to the pool edge.
IIDA- Make sure the kinot is at the
UGYwater's surface, so the ani-
NDLY mal can more easily climb
ING out. (This technique only
works for climbing animals
such as raccoons, mice, and squirrels).
If a critter decides to take a dip in
your pool before you have had the
chance to install a ramp, log, or rope,
try one of these rescue techniques:
SBirds, frogs, snakes and other
small animals: Scoop them out with a
net or pool skimmer.If you don't have a
skimmer handy, try the bristled end of
a broom to lift them up and out of the
SLarger animals: Use a chaise
lounge or a partially deflated float as a

makeshift ramp. Anchor the ramp on
the pool steps with a weight such as a
cinderblock or tie it to the ladder rail.
SFor any animal: Always use cau-
tion to avoid being bitten.
If you find that wild guests frequent
your pool, you may want to consider
building them a "spa" of their own.
A wildlife pond will provide food, water,
or shelter for a wide variety of wild
neighbors, and it will bring you hours of
viewing pleasure. This can be especially
helpful to wildlife in areas with limited
water -it will keep them from trying to
drink water from your pool, which is full
of chemicals that aren't healthy.

rus County Extension at 352-527-5700.

pictures of a clock. The porce-
lain enameled face shows "EF
Caldwell and Co. Inc. New
York." The movement is
stamped "Chelsea Clock Co. .
Boston USA." Though it is
impossible to make out
from the photo, the move-
ment has an exposed es-
capement but I do not see
any signs of a pendulum
I am an amateur clock John Sik
collector and all my other SlKOR!
clocks have pendulums, but AT
as this does not, perhaps it
operates more on a watch
type movement? There is only one key-
hole on the face, so obviously it has no
chime. I also sent a few close-ups of the
design elements of the clock for your re-
view. The Wedgwood Jasper ware finial
on top is not actually attached, so I tend
to doubt it is even original to the clock,
but it does look nice. It is stamped with
the Wedgwood mark.
I did some Internet research on E.E

Caldwell and found that he was prima-
rily a lighting designer in New York City
in the early 20th century. I also under-
stand that the lighting in Radio
City Music Hall is attributed to
him. I also found links to
archived company records
PRwith photographs at the Smith-
.sonian Institution. On their site
I found many examples of his
-flighting fixtures, clocks, cande-
labra and such, but no example
of this specific clock. I also
orski learned that he was commis-
SKl'S sioned to design lighting for
Many of the "Gilded Age"
homes in and around New
SYork City.
My dear friend that gave me the clock
twenty years ago, whose father was a
"big shot" with Gimbel's in the 1920s,
said it was from the Astor estate, but I
don't have to tell you how stories get em-
bellished over the years. That is about
all I know I hope this is enough info
for you to work with. PG., Homosassa
Dear EG.: The style of your clock is
Louis XVI Neo-Classical taken from

late-18th century France. The decora-
tive metalwork appears to be either
brass or bronze. Chelsea clocks are a
category of specific collector interest.
The company is recognized worldwide
for their high-quality clocks that are ea-
gerly sought after by collectors. I sus-
pect your good-looking Chelsea Clock
was made after World War I. Current
potential dollar value is in the $1,000
range, perhaps more on a lucky day.
Dear John: The attached photo shows
a 9-inch tall pitcher and a 4-inch tall
glass. I have three glasses. I have been
told they are crystal. They were wed-
ding presents to my grandparents, who
were married in 1913 in Tampa. There
are no markings indicating manufac-
turer or origin. Any information you can
give me on origin and estimated value
See ATTIC/Page E5
RIGHT: This clock, attributed to de-
signer E.F. Caldwell, was produced by
the Chelsea Clock Company. The firm's
products are highly sought after by
clock collectors

For The Associated Press

rom Memorial Day
and Independence
Day on through
Labor Day, Americans
are staging celebrations
of patriotism. At sum-
mer ballgames and
community events, we catch
sight of billowing flags and
take in the hum of the na-
tional anthem.
At the height of summer,
many of us look for ways to
bring a bit of patriotic style
or military flair into our
homes. But how do you add
a dash of Americana into
your decor without giving
your home the feel of a bed-
and-breakfast in colonial
Interior designer Mallory
Mathison says ramping up
your in-house display of pa-
triotism can be done in a
chic, 21st-century way.
"IYou can use that red,
white and blue palette in
ways that feel fresh and
clean," she says. "And it's
not the obvious, patriotic,
Uncle Sam sort of thing."
But do tread carefully,
says designer Lee Kleinhel-
ter, owner of the Atlanta de-
sign store Pieces. "You can
easily overdo it," she says.

So as you make decorating
choices, "ask yourself
whether it's something you
can easily live with every

"Red, white and blue is
classic," says designer Brian
Patrick Flynn, creator of the
design blog
decordemon.com. But it's
important to choose the
right shades and patterns.
"To add touches ofAmeri-
can style to my spaces, I
often turn to textiles, partic-
ularly nautical prints, or
even Ralph Lauren plaids
reminiscent of Hamptons-
style homes or the preppy
Ivy League styles of the
Northeast," Flynn says. "In
a master bedroom for a
bachelor, I used Navy blue
as the room's base color,
then added contrast with
red, white and blue nautical
Mathison loves doing
rooms in blue and white,
then bringing in just one
dash of red through an ac-
cessory, lamp or even a vase
of red flowers. Or she'll add
cotton rugs in shades of red,
white and blue over a hard-
wood floor:
