The Gulf Coast region has
been saturated thanks to a
wet summer, and some offi-
cials have worried more rain
could make it easy for trees
and power lines to fall over
in the wet ground. Too much
water also could flood crops,
and wind could topple plants
such as corn and cotton.
'A large, slow-moving sys-
tem is going to pose a lot of
problems: winds, flooding,
storm surge and even poten-
tially down the road river
flooding," said Richard
Knabb, director of the Na-
tional Hurricane Center in
Miami. "That could happen
for days after the event."

Surgical Association (ISA)
is the largest multispecialty
surgical group in the area. ISA
is home to six experienced and
compassionate surgeons, a professional
staff, multiple examination rooms, facilities
for minor outpatient care, and offices
within walking distance to Citrus Memorial
Hospital. As part of the not-for-profit Citrus
Memorial Health System (CMHS), ISA's
patients have access to all CMHS facilities
and services.
The surgeons at ISA are qualified to
diagnose and treat a wide variety of
conditions, from skin cancer removal
to general surgery and vascular surgery.
Each doctor is board-certified and brings a
particular expertise to the table.
Declan Hegarty, M.D., FACS
Dr. Hegarty joined ISA in June 2010. In
addition to general surgery, he specializes
in minimally invasive laparoscopic
hernia repair surgery. Compared to the
conventional or "open" hernia repair
surgery, this treatment gives patients a
quicker recovery, less postoperative pain,
and an earlier return to normal activities.
Farhaad Golkar, M.D.
In addition to general surgery, Dr. Golkar
focuses on surgical care for pancreatic
cancer, biliary disease, liver disease, and
minimally invasive/laparoscopic surgery
for gastroesophageal reflux disease
(GERD, or acid reflux). Typically, GERD
is first treated with lifestyle changes,
followed by drug therapy. Patients who do
not respond to these treatments can often
find relief through minimally invasive/
laparoscopic surgery.
Torr Carmain, M.D.
Dr. Carmain's areas of medical expertise
include advanced laparoscopy for
ventral hernia and colectomy, breast
surgery including sentinel lymph node
and stereotactic biopsy, upper and lower
endoscopy, ultrasound guided venous
access, and colonoscopy.

first hurricane to hit the
Gulf Coast since 2008.
Evacuations were ordered
for some low-lying areas and
across the region, people
boarded up homes, stocked
up on supplies and got ready
for the storm. Schools, uni-
versities and businesses
closed in many places.

mal nomination off by a day

mitting, he delivers his ac-

Thursday night, then em-

hopes will propel him to

Romney's wife, Ann, is on
the speaking program for
Tuesday evening, and it
wasn't known if he in-
tended to be in the hall for
her address.
"This week is about con-
vincing the 10 percent of
undecided voters that Rom-
ney has always been called
to come out and fix broken
organizations," said Sen.
Roger Wicker, R-Miss., in-
terviewed on the conven-
tion floor.
"We've got to make the

said, adding that the "coun-

after Katrina in 2005.
"The water was up to the
first landing of the stairs,"
she said. "So I get very
nervous about it."
Isaac's approach on the
eve of the Katrina anniver-
sary invited obvious compar-
isons, but Isaac is nowhere
near as powerful as Katrina
was when it struck Aug. 29,
2005. Katrina at one point
reached Category 5 status
with winds of over 157 mph.
It made landfall as a Cate-
gory 3 storm and created a
huge storm surge.
Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency officials
said the updated levees
around New Orleans are
equipped to handle storms
stronger than Isaac. Levee
failures led to the cata-
strophic flooding in the
area after Katrina.

"It's time to stop blaming
others and take responsi-
bility," he said in a refer-
ence to the president.
"There are families all over
Ohio that are suffering as a
result. He hasn't measured
up to his own standards. "
What passed for vocal
dissent within the party
came from supporters of
Rep. Ron Paul, a Texas Re-
publican who ran for the
presidential nomination
but failed to win a primary
or caucus.
Delegates loyal to him
threatened a floor fight
later in the week over
party rules. And they
staged a brief but noisy
demonstration at the rear
of the convention hall
after Priebus completed
his brief turn at the
podium, holding up plac-
ards bearing their man's
name. They stood in front
of a permanent sign that
said "We Can Do Better,"
appropriating Romney's
pledge to fix the economy
to express a preference
for their man.
More than dissent, there
was concern from within
the party, though couched
in supportive terms, that
despite the political oppor-
tunity the weak economy
presents, Romney needs to
broaden GOP appeal.

Complaints of price
gouging reported
The state has received al-

on price gouging after Tropical

John Lucas, spokesman
for the Florida Attorney Gen-

160 complaints made to a
state hotline by Monday after-
noon, only 44 were deemed
worthy further review.
Florida law prohibits ex-
treme increases in the price
of essential commodities
such as food, water, gasoline
and other items needed as a
result of an officially declared
emergency. Gov. Rick Scott
declared a state of emer-
gency Saturday.

Four more cases of West

cases were reported last year
to the county.
The virus is commonly
transmitted between birds
and mosquitoes that feed on

mosquitoes. Severe symp-
toms include a high fever,
neck stiffness, disorientation,

offer a comment as the con-
vention goes through a roll
call. Romney is the pre-
sumptive 2012 Republican
nominee for president.
Michele Klemm, chair-
woman of the Citrus County
Republican Executive
Committee, is a volunteer
who checks credentials on
the Tampa Bay Hosting
Committee. She will attend
the convention on Tuesday
and Thursday On Monday,
Klemm said she had been
to Tampa for briefings.
"I'm looking forward to
meeting the delegates and
showing them what Tampa
Bay is, enhancing their ex-
perience here," Klemm,
who lives in Lecanto, said.

Also, each year the Lions
Club sends volunteers to
help register patients
standing in line.
After the second year of
working until 10 p.m., Hos-
ner and his staff decided
that the following year they
would stop at 4 p.m. Like-
wise, this year.
They also stopped doing

we had to leave some peo-
ple with painful toothaches
in the waiting room," he

Although Klemm has
chaired the Citrus GOP for
two years, she said the
Tampa Bay Hosting Com-
mittee is apolitical. Her
goal in working with the
committee is to "help dele-
gates get around the area
without any trouble and to
come back here again for
conventions, vacations or to
live here."
As for Hagaman, this is
his second Republican Na-
tional Convention. He at-
tended the 2000 RNC in
Philadelphia when he lived
in Missouri.
Hagaman's greatest
memory of the Philadel-
phia convention involved a
staircase for celebrities.
Greeters stood and ap-
plauded the notable per-
sonages as they ascended
the stairs.
Unknowingly, Hagaman
climbed the stairs as a
shortcut from the restroom
and was surprised he got a
standing ovation.

A Beverly Hills man is
facing a federal drug traf-
ficking charge after he was
reportedly found holding a
package of cocaine that
came through the mail, ac-
cording to the Citrus County
Sheriff's Office.
David Preston Rogers, 26,
of Roosevelt Boulevard was
ended July
23 following
a joint in-

sheriff's of-

facing federal Security
charge. agents. Fed-
eral clearance procedures
delayed release of the ar-
rest report, sheriff's spokes-
woman Gail Tierney said.
Local investigators were
alerted by federal officials
about a package from the
U.S. Virgin Islands that was
intercepted in Puerto Rico
during a routine inspection
and had about 2.2 pounds of
cocaine in it, according to a
sheriff's office news re-
lease. The street value of
the package is $32,000.
The originating name and
address on the confiscated
box was linked to a man liv-
ing at a Roosevelt Boule-
vard address in Beverly
Hills, officials said.
Homeland Security
agents discovered Rogers
had recently visited the Vir-
gin Islands and returned to
Florida around the same
date the package was sent
by mail.
The delivery address for
the package was a house in
On or around July 21, the
package, by then in the
hands of the U.S. Postal In-
spection Service, was re-
portedly sent on to Tampa.
Sheriff's office personnel
also started surveillance at
the Lecanto delivery ad-
dress, developing suspects
and associates from prior
undercover drug activities
at the two addresses ap-
pearing on the package, ac-
cording to the news release.
On July 23, an undercover
postal inspector delivered
the packaged cocaine to the
Lecanto address. Rogers,
who was inside the resi-
dence, left the house on
foot, the news release said.
He reportedly called
someone else to come over
and pick up the package,
which a woman at the resi-
dence had already signed
for, according to the release.
A short time later, a man
arrived at the house in a
green 1994 Mercury four-
door sedan. After walking to
the front door, the man was
seen returning to the vehi-
cle carrying the just-deliv-
ered box.
The Mercury reportedly
stopped to pick up Rogers,
who was walking down the
road. Authorities tailed the
Mercury through the
According to the release,
a man, later identified as
Rogers, quickly exited the
car and began running east
between houses nearby

Rogers was detained and
taken to the Citrus County
Detention facility, where
he was placed on hold for
federal court. Rogers also
was out on bond related to

bond was revoked and he

Police officers watch demonstrators march through the streets of Tampa on Monday to
protest the Republican National Convention.

RNC protests muted, small

Associated Press

TAMPA There have
been no speeches inside
the convention hall and it's
nearly as quiet outside, too.
So far, the protests have
been muted and only two
people have been arrested
as of Monday night That's in
stark contrast to four years
ago, when hundreds of pro-
testers were arrested at the
Republican National Con-
vention in St. Paul, Minn.
Tampa Police Chief Jane
Castor said police this week
are trying to give leeway to
protesters in the street, but
when a 20-year-old man re-
fused to remove a ban-
danna covering his face on
Monday, he was arrested.
Face coverings are prohib-
ited in the event zones.
Protesters can say and do
whatever they would like

"as long as they don't cross
the line into criminal be-
havior," she added.
And protesters, who for
months planned to con-
verge on Tampa to show-
case their gripes and
messages, have been
peaceful and small in num-
ber. The lingering rain
bands and wind from Trop-
ical Storm Isaac that
skirted Florida's west coast
and the massive police
presence kept the crowds
away, organizers said.
A march that had been
predicted to draw 5,000
people in the morning drew
just a few hundred.
"Obviously, to go from an
estimated 5,000 to a couple
hundred, the weather had
to play a part," Castor said.
When about a dozen pro-
testers sat in front of a line
of police in riot gear, Tampa

Assistant Police Chief John
Bennett squatted down and
chatted with them for a
minute. They agreed to
stand up and walk away
The line of riot police
quickly multiplied to about
100 as a downpour started,
dispersing the already
small group, except those
who danced in the rain.
"They've militarized
Tampa. The chilling effect
has succeeded," Cara Jen-
nings, a voter outreach or-
ganizer from Palm Beach
County, said earlier in the
The soggy weather also
was no help. Sporadic heavy
rain lashed the city and
winds were gusting at 35
mph as Isaac passed to the
west of Tampa in the Gulf.
The Republicans them-
selves had canceled most of
their Monday activities.

Top donors to schmooze

with convention guests

Associated Press

TAMPA Away from the
televised political speeches
and Mitt Romney's nomina-
tion at the Republican Na-
tional Convention, energy,
technology, transportation
companies and others are
hosting lavish parties for
Republican leaders, politi-
cians and Romney's top
The behind-the-scenes
parties, receptions and
other exclusive events
allow the Republican elite
to mingle with donors and
special interests in a way
that's unusual even for the
nation's capital. Dozens of
events and scores of donors,
lobbyists and corporate
heads are all under one

roof this week and under
a loosely regulated setting
distant from Washington.
That's as voters, who
have long bristled at how
special interests influence
policymakers, will see only
scripted, primetime
speeches and Romney's ac-
ceptance remarks from
their living rooms.
The influence of money
in politics has received
heightened scrutiny this
election, as independent
political groups have
spent hundreds of mil-
lions of dollars to support
their favored candidates.
This is the first convention
that will highlight the im-
pact of these groups, in-
cluding the presence of
top GOP strategist Karl

Rove of the "super" politi-
cal committee American
The parties begin anew
next week in Charlotte,
N.C., home to the Democ-
rats' national convention.
The DNC said its gathering
would be the first not to
rely on special-interest
money, although its organ-
izers quietly set up a non-
profit entity to collect
corporate cash.
Democratic donors com-
plained early in President
Barack Obama's adminis-
tration they were kept at
arm's length. Since then,
the president has opened
his White House to contrib-
utors for events like state
dinners and meetings with
policy advisers.

WASHINGTON Critical ice in
the Arctic Ocean melted to record
low levels this sweltering summer
and that can make weather more
extreme far away from the poles,
scientists say
The National Snow and Ice Data
Center reported Monday that the
extent of Arctic sea ice shrank to
1.58 million square miles and is
likely to melt more in the coming
weeks. That breaks the old record
of 1.61 million square miles set in
The North Pole region is an
ocean that mostly is crusted at the
top with ice. In the winter, the
frozen saltwater surface usually ex-
tends about 6 million square miles,
shrinking in summer and growing
back in the fall. That's different
from Antarctica, which is land cov-
ered by ice and snow and then sur-
rounded by sea ice.
Normally, sea ice in the Arctic
reaches its minimum in mid-
September and then starts refreez-
ing. But levels on Sunday shrank
27,000 square miles about the
size of West Virginia beyond the
old record.
Figures are based on satellite
records dating back to 1979. The ice
center bases its figures on averages
calculated over five days.
Data center scientist Ted Scam-

bos said the melt can be blamed
mostly on global warming from
man-made emissions of green-
house gases. There are natural fac-
tors involved too, including a storm
that chewed up a significant
amount ice earlier this month. But,
he said, dramatic summer sea ice
losses in all but one year since
2007, continuous thin ice, and
warm air temperatures show a pat-
tern that can only be explained by
climate change.

tic is moving to a new state," said
NASA ice systems program scien-
tist Tom Wagner. "The Arctic is
Wagner and Scambos said in
2007 some people thought it was
just an odd year that caused the
dramatic melt, but years like this
one show something bigger is
This milestone is a "substantial
step" to the day when there will be
no significant sea ice in the Arctic

in the summer, said NASA chief
scientist Waleed Abdalati.
"Why do we care?" Abdalati, an
ice scientist, asked. "This ice has
been an important factor in deter-
mining the climate and weather
conditions under which modern
civilization has evolved."
Scientists sometimes call the
Arctic the world's refrigerator and
this is like leaving the refrigerator
door open, Scambos said.
"This is kind of a knob on global
weather," Wagner said. "We don't
know the impact yet" of fiddling
with it.
Scientists say Arctic sea ice helps
moderate temperatures further
south in the winter and summer. A
study earlier this year in the peer-
reviewed journal Geophysical Re-
search Letters linked some of the
factors behind Arctic sea ice loss to
higher probabilities of extreme
weather "such as drought, flooding,
cold spells and heat waves."
Scientists also say sea ice is cru-

What Apple's $1B victory means for consumers

Associated Press

NEW YORK-Apple's $1
billion court victory over
Samsung poses a lot of
questions for consumers.
Will Samsung phones still
be available for sale? Will
they be more expensive?
Will owners of existing
phones need to worry?
A federal jury in San
Jose, Calif., ruled late Fri-
day that Samsung, the
world's largest maker of
phones, had copied fea-
tures of the iPhone and the
iPad. That included the
"bounce-back" behavior
when a user scrolls to the
end of a page and the ability
to zoom in on an image by
spreading two fingers.
The jury awarded Apple
$1.05 billion in damages.
That was less than the $2.5
billion sought, but still a vic-
tory for Apple. Meanwhile,
the jury rejected Samsung's
patent-infringement claims
against Apple. An appeal is
For now, here's what
the verdict means for
Q. Can I still buy a Sam-
sung phone or tablet com-
puter today?
A. Yes. The jury didn't
prohibit sales of the de-
vices. However, Apple will
ask a judge to ban U.S. sales
of several Samsung devices.
A Sept. 20 hearing has been
scheduled. If the judge
agrees, that would affect
many Samsung devices, but
not the most recent ones,
such as the Galaxy S III and
Galaxy Note smartphones.
Most of the two dozen de-
vices covered by the lawsuit
aren't sold in meaningful
numbers in the U.S.
Q. Was Friday's verdict
A. No. Samsung is chal-
lenging it. First, Samsung
will first ask the trial judge
to toss the verdict. Then it
will appeal to a court in
Washington that specializes
in patent appeals. Samsung
has vowed to take the fight
all the way to the U.S.
Supreme Court, if

Banners advertising Samsung Electronics' Galaxy S III and Apple's iPhone 4S are dis-
played Monday at a mobilephone shop in Seoul, South Korea. After more than three weeks
of trial in the U.S. and two days of deliberations, the nine-person jury said Friday that
Samsung copied Apple's iPhone and iPad and ordered the South Korean firm to pay more
than $1 billion in damages.

will this drive Samsung out
of the phone business?
A. That's not likely. The
verdict doesn't apply out-
side the U.S. and doesn't
apply to the latest Samsung
devices either. The $1 bil-
lion in damages represents
1.5 percent of Samsung
Electronics Co.'s annual
Q. Will this make
Samsung phones more
A. Possibly Samsung may
have to pay Apple substan-
tial royalties on each
phone. Consumers will
likely pay for that somehow,
but it may not be noticeable
in stores. Phone companies
such as AT&T and Verizon
Wireless already subsidize
each smartphone by hun-
dreds of dollars to get retail
prices down to $99 or $199.
Q. What does this mean
for the Samsung phone I al-
ready own?
A. This doesn't directly
affect phones that have al-
ready been sold, even if
they are the models that the
judge decides to ban. In the
long run, it could reduce
enthusiasm around An-

droid, the operating system
from Google that Samsung
uses in the devices in ques-
tion. That might mean
fewer applications for An-
droid from outside parties.
That will take years to play
out, but could conceivably
affect the resale value of
your phone.
Q. Does this mean Sam-
sung phones will look dif-
ferent in the future?
A. Possibly. The jury
dinged Samsung's flagship
Galaxy line for copying the
overall look and feel of the
iPhone and for using the
stock icons with rounded
corners that come with An-
droid. Also at issue was the
way Android can tell the
difference between the
touch of a single finger and
several fingers. Samsung
might delay some models
to give it time to rework
their look and feel.
Q. What does this mean
for other Android phones,
such as those from LG
Electronics Inc., HTC Corp.
and Google's Motorola
A. Although the ruling
applies only to Samsung, it

will have an indirect effect
on all makers of Android
devices. Apple could go
after them with arguments
similar to the ones used
against Samsung. But the
ruling Friday is not prece-
dential, meaning that other
courts could reach com-
pletely different decisions.
Most likely, makers ofAn-
droid phones will take
more care to make their
phones distinguishable
from the iPhone.
It's also a standard tactic

in patent cases to counter-
sue. In this case, Samsung's
patent claims againstApple
were thrown out by the
court But Google has been
buying up patents and
could help other phone
makers mount more effec-
tive countersuits.
Q. What does this mean
for Android devices around
the world?
A The ruling applies only
to the U.S., though Apple
and Samsung are waging
similar battles in other
On the same day Sam-
sung lost in the U.S., it par-
tially won a fight in South
Korea. A Seoul court im-
posed a partial ban on
South Korean sales of prod-
ucts from both companies.
That verdict didn't affect
the latest models either.
Q. What does this mean
for Apple?
A Analysts say it could
help Apple gain market
share at the expense of An-
droid phones, if these have
to avoid some attractive
and easy-to-use features in-
troduced by Apple.
Despite being a driving
force in phone develop-
ment since the iPhone was
launched in 2007, Apple has
only 19 percent of the
worldwide smartphone
market, according to IDC.
The high price of the
iPhone keeps it out of the
reach of many consumers.
Meanwhile, Android
phones have 64 percent of
the market.

Wagner said the changes in Arc-
tic sea ice fits with glacier loss in
Alaska and Canada and ice loss in
Greenland. Earlier this summer,
NASA satellites reported a dra-
matic melt in Greenland, where
nearly every part of its massive ice
sheet started melting, something
that last happened in 1889.
Ohio State University ice scien-
tist Jason Box has been monitoring
Greenland, where he said temper-
atures have sometimes been 9 to 18
degrees warmer than normal this
summer and the ice is reflecting far
less heat and thus absorbing
more energy than ever before.
Global warming physics for years
has been saying if greenhouse
gases are causing climate change,
the Arctic will feel it first with loss
of sea ice and melt in snow and ice
on land, Box said.
"We're in a declining trend be-
cause the Earth is getting warmer,"
Scambos said. "It's going to con-
tinue to be a series of shrinking ice
extents year by year ... We're not
going back."

On a quiet day, Apple

rules the stock market

Rates mixed in weekly Treasury auction

unchanged from last week.
Another $28 billion in six-
month bills was auctioned
at a discount rate of 0.140
percent, down from 0.145
percent last week.
The six-month rate was
the lowest since these bills
averaged 0.135 percent on
Aug. 6.
The discount rates reflect
that the bills sell for less
than face value. For a
$10,000 bill, the three-month
price was $9,997.34 while a

six-month bill sold for
$9,992.92. That would equal
an annualized rate of 0.106
percent for the three-month
bills and 0.142 percent for
the six-month bills.
Separately, the Federal
Reserve said Monday that
the average yield for one-
year Treasury bills, a popu-
lar index for making
changes in adjustable rate
mortgages, rose to 0.19 per-
cent last week from 0.18 per-
cent the previous week.


While it's nice airlines aren't
charging you to rebook, the
time you have to take your trip
depends on your carrier.
Some airlines give passen-
gers nearly a year to fly again,
while others require them to be
on planes as soon as Friday.

Rich don't pay

enough taxes?

WASHINGTON -As the in-
come gap between rich and
poor widens, a majority of
Americans said the growing di-
vide is bad for the country and
believe that wealthy people are
paying too little in taxes, ac-
cording to a new survey.
The poll released Monday by

the Pew Research Center
points to a particular challenge
for Republican presidential can-
didate Mitt Romney, whose
party's policies are viewed by a
wide majority as favoring the
rich over the middle class and
The poll found many Ameri-
cans believe rich people to be
intelligent and hardworking but
also greedy and less honest
than the average American.
Nearly six in 10, or 58 per-
cent, said the rich don't pay
enough in taxes, while 26 per-
cent believe the rich pay their
fair share and 8 percent say
they pay too much.

Hewlett-Packard Co. used to
be known as a place where in-

work on great ideas that
opened new frontiers in tech-

Coming off a five-year stretch
of miscalculations, HP is in
such desperate need of a re-

written off its chances of a

Inc. shifted the direction of

the iPhone in June 2007, HP's
market value has plunged by
60 percent to $35 billion. Dur-

Airlines differ on

Isaac rebooking

NEW YORK- When hurri-
canes, blizzards or other se-
vere weather disrupt flights,
some airlines are more accom-
modating than others in letting
passengers rebook.
Tropical Storm Isaac is
sweeping into the Gulf of Mex-
ico and all the airlines with
flights to and from the region
this week are waiving their nor-
mal fees for passengers to re-
book trips. So-called change
fees can be as high as $150 on
a domestic trip.

Safety beeps
-0579 This is in response to
the complaint about the
garbage trucks bothering these
people by going beep, beep,
beep in the morning at 4:30.
Somebody needs to tell that lady
or gentleman that maybe it's a
good idea those trucks should
turn their beep-beeps off and
then, you know, one day back
right into their house. They need
to wake up and smell the roses.
Those beep-beeps are for safety.
And just once a week waking up
with beep-beeps in the morning?
For crying out loud. Don't they
have anything better to think

Times, Feb. 4, 2009).
And I would be im-
pressed with another
Ryan statement except
that it has a large hole
in it:
"The nucleus of our
society, of our econ-
omy? It's not govern-
ment It's us. It's we the Nat H
people. It's the individ- OTH
ual" ("Tea Party Hopes VOl
to Gain Large Stage in
Election With Rom-
ney's Pick," Michael D. Shear,
The New York Times, Aug. 13).
Sounds like James Madison,
who introduced the Bill of Rights
to our first Congress.
However, having researched
the huge media coverage of Mitt
Romney choosing Paul Ryan to
be his vice president, I have
found no substantive evidence
that Ryan is at all actively con-
cerned or cares about pro-
tecting the individual personal
constitutional liberties of We the
People, included in the Bill of
Rights, which had to be added to
the Constitution for it to function.
For example, in Congress,
Ryan supported the Patriot Act
"and later voted to preserve fed-
eral authorities' ability under
that law to see library records in
their investigations" (of terror-
ism) ("Ryan's voting record shows
conservatism tinged with maver-
ick streak," Stephen Dinan, The
Washington Times, Aug. 11).
Imagine our Founders' reac-
tions to the government testing
their loyalty according to the
books they read.
And Ryan "has supported a ban
on flag burning" ("As Ryan Looks
to Focus on Economy, Spotlight
Shines on His Other Views,"
Robert Pear, The New York
Times, Aug. 12).
That reminded me of a tumul-
tuous national debate when, in
1989, the Supreme Court decided
a flag burning case, Texas v John-
son, by a 5-4 majority
Writing for the majority, Justice
William Brennan decided that
"Johnson's burning of the flag
constituted expressive conduct,
permitting him to invoke the
First Amendment"
Joining the majority was the

renowned conservative original-
ist Antonin Scalia, who recently
reiterated his opinion in an in-
terview on CNN's "Piers Morgan
"We have a First Amendment,
which says that the right of free
speech shall not be abridged. And
it is addressed, in par-
ticular, to speech criti-
cal of the government
I mean, that was the
main kind of speech
(in this case) that
tyrants would seek to
suppress. Burning the
flag is a form of
I sure would like to
entoff see an in-depth debate
IER between Ryan and
CES Scalia on the First
Amendment. Maybe
CBS' "60 Minutes"
could set it up.
Also, Ryan voted for the final
passage of one of the very worst
presidential assaults on our core
protections of due process and
the presumption of innocence -
the National Defense Authoriza-
tion Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year
2012. Signed into law by Presi-
dent Barack Obama with strong
support by a majority of Con-
gress, the NDAA gives the presi-
dent the power to indefinitely
imprison American citizens,
without trial, by the military for
vaguely implied "association"
with terrorists.
Furthermore, a recent New
York Times story details Ryan's
close ties to Charles and David
Koch, billionaire brothers and
political donors ("Ryan Has Kept
Close Ties to Wealthy Donors on
the Right," Nicholas Confessore,
Aug. 13).
That brings me to a personal
involvement in this story I am a
senior fellow at the Cato Institute
in Washington, D.C., a firmly in-
dependent think tank that is truly,
insistently libertarian in protect-
ing the individual constitutional
liberties of We the People. This
year, the Koch brothers who
had been involved in the forma-
tion of Cato, but have changed
their intentions tried very hard
to take control of Cato and turn it
into part of their political
My colleagues at Cato let the
nation know in detail about the
great distance separating the val-
ues and purposes of the Koch
brothers from ours at Cato, which
circulates my column weekly Be-
cause much of the media also il-
luminated that distance between
Cato and the Koch brothers, their

reputation was sullied and the
Kochs retreated. So Cato remains
a guardian of this republic's self-
governing personal constitu-
tional freedoms.
Meanwhile, so-called individu-
alist Ryan as reported by Con-
fessore in the Times "is one of
the very few elected officials who
have attended the Kochs' bian-
nual conferences ... (of) wealthy
Ryan is obviously welcome
But this column questioning
Ryan's ties to the Bill of Rights is
in no way intended to help keep
the incumbent in office. As I have
often reported, Obama has been
rampantly in contempt of the
Constitution more often than any
previous chief executive.
In November, mine will be a
write-in presidential vote for Re-
publican Sen. Rand Paul of Ken-
tucky, who opposed extensions of
the Patriot Act, because, as The
Associated Press and Huffington
Post reported, the law "tramples
on individual liberties" ("Patriot
Act Extension Passes Senate,
Rand Paul Amendments Fail,"
AP/The Huffington Post, May 26,
Here is part of the essence of
Rand Paul: "Not only do I like the
Second Amendment, I like the
Fourth Amendment" ("Sen. Paul
says no to domestic drones," se-
curity.blogs.cnn.com, June 12).
At 49, Paul could be a long shot
for the White House so long as we
still have a working Constitution.
On this year's ticket, Romney,
who enabled Ryan to vault into
national attention, has a record
about as empty as his protegd's
on the Bill of Rights and says
nothing of the Fourth Amend-
ment being on life support.
A final Ryan pledge: "What I
see myself doing is engaging in a
defense of the ideas that built this
country" ("Paul Ryan's Irish
Clan," Maggie Gallagher, The
New York Post, Aug. 16).
Mr Ryan, if you'll look at James
Madison's notes on the 1787 Con-
stitutional Convention, you'll find
you missed the debates on the in-
dispensable ideas that did build
this country ideas that you do
not mention.

Prosecutor: Murder case uncovers terror plot

Associated Press
LUDOWICI, Ga. Four Army
soldiers based in southeast Geor-
gia killed a former comrade and
his girlfriend to protect an anar-
chist militia group they formed
that stockpiled assault weapons
and plotted a range of anti-gov-
ernment attacks, prosecutors told
a judge Monday
Prosecutors in rural Long
County, near the sprawling Army
post Fort Stewart, said the militia
group composed of active duty
and former U.S. military members
spent at least $87,000 buying guns
and bomb components and was
serious enough to kill two people
- former soldier Michael Roark
and his 17-year-old girlfriend,
Tiffany York by shooting them
in the woods last December in
order to keep its plans secret.
"This domestic terrorist organi-
zation did not simply plan and
talk," prosecutor Isabel Pauley
told a Superior Court judge.
"Prior to the murders in this case,
the group took action. Evidence
shows the group possessed the
knowledge, means and motive to
carry out their plans."
One of the Fort Stewart soldiers
charged in the case, Army Pfc.
Michael Burnett, also gave testi-
mony that backed up many of the
assertions made by prosecutors.
The 26-year-old soldier pleaded
guilty Monday to manslaughter, il-
legal gang activity and other
charges. He made a deal to cooper-

ate with prosecutors in their case
against the three other soldiers.
Prosecutors said the group
called itself EE.A.R., short for For-
ever Enduring Always Ready
Pauley said authorities don't know

how many members the militia
Burnett, 26, said he knew the
group's leaders from serving with
them at Fort Stewart. He agreed to
testify against fellow soldiers Pvt

Isaac Aguigui, identified by pros-
ecutors as the militia's founder
and leader, Sgt. Anthony Peden
and Pvt. Christopher Salmon.
All are charged by state author-
ities with malice murder, felony

murder, criminal gang activity, ag-
gravated assault and using a
firearm while committing a felony
A hearing for the three soldiers
was scheduled Thursday
Prosecutors say Roark, 19,
served with the four defendants in
the 4th Brigade Combat Team of
the Army's 3rd Infantry Division
and became involved with the
militia. Pauley said the group be-
lieved it had been betrayed by
Roark, who left the Army two days
before he was killed, and decided
the ex-soldier and his girlfriend
needed to be silenced.
Burnett testified that on the
night of Dec. 4, he and the three
other soldiers lured Roark and
York to some woods a short dis-
tance from the Army post under
the guise that they were going tar-
get shooting. He said Peden shot
Roark's girlfriend in the head
while she was trying to get out of
her car. Salmon, he said, made
Roark get on his knees and shot
him twice in the head. Burnett
said Aguigui ordered the killings.
'"A loose end is the way Isaac put
it," Burnett said.
Aguigui's attorney, Daveniya
Fisher, did not immediately re-
turn a phone call from The Asso-
ciated Press. Attorneys for Peden
and Salmon both declined to com-
ment Monday
Also charged in the killings is
Salmon's wife, Heather Salmon.
Her attorney, Charles Nester, did
not immediately return a call
seeking comment.

loses power suddenly, oper-

the partially cooked oil out

refinery can take several

Teen pot use linked to later IQ decline

Associated Press
NEW YORK-Teens who
routinely smoke marijuana
risk a long-term drop in their
IQ, a new study suggests.
The researchers didn't
find the same IQ dip for
people who became fre-
quent users of pot after 18.
Although experts said the
new findings are not defin-
itive, they do fit in with ear-
lier signs that the drug is
especially harmful to the
developing brain.
"Parents should under-
stand that their adolescents
are particularly vulnera-
ble,"' said lead researcher
Madeline Meier of Duke
Study participants from
New Zealand were tested
for IQ at age 13, likely be-

fore any significant mari-
juana use, and again at age
38. The mental decline be-
tween those two ages was
seen only in those who
started regularly smoking
pot before age 18.
Richie Poulton, a study
co-author and professor at
the University of Otago in
New Zealand, said the mes-
sage of the research is to
stay away from marijuana
until adulthood if possible.
"For some it's a legal issue,"
he said, "but for me it's a
health issue."
Pot is the most popular il-
legal drug in the world,
with somewhere between
119 million and 224 million
users between the ages of
15 and 64 as of 2010, the
United Nations reported.
Within the United States, 23

percent of high school stu-
dents said they'd recently
smoked marijuana, making
it more popular than ciga-
rettes, the federal govern-
ment reported in June.
Young people "don't think
it's risky," said Staci Gruber,
a researcher at the Har-
vard-affiliated MacLean
Hospital in Belmont, Mass.
Gruber, who didn't partici-
pate in the new work, said
the idea that marijuana
harms the adolescent brain
is "something we believe is
very likely," and the new
finding of IQ declines war-
rants further investigation.
Experts said the new re-
search is an advance be-
cause its methods avoid
criticisms of some earlier
work, which generally did
not measure mental per-

formance before marijuana
use began.
"I think this is the clean-
est study I've ever read"
that looks for long-term
harm from marijuana use,
said Dr Nora Volkow, direc-
tor of the National Institute
on Drug Abuse, which
helped fund the research.
Ken Winters, a psychiatry
professor at the University of
Minnesota and senior scien-
tist at the Treatment Re-
search Institute in
Philadelphia, said the new
findings aren't definitive, but
they underscore the impor-
tance of studying how mari-
juana may harm youths.

ported their work online

parts of the country is hardly
The beheadings occurred
in southern Helmand, the
same province where more
than 100 insurgents attacked
an Afghan army checkpoint
and killed 10 soldiers.
Helmand was the center-
piece of President Barack
Obama's surge, when he or-
dered 33,000 additional U.S
troops to Afghanistan to
help the military with a
counterinsurgency plan.
That plan hoped to turn the
tide in Helmand and neigh-
boring Kandahar and estab-
lish the governmental
institutions that would
allow the Afghan govern-
ment to take control of the
Taliban heartland.

Two years later, however,
Helmand is still so lawless
that Afghan government offi-
cials couldn't even go to the
Taliban-controlled town
where the beheadings were
reported. Many Afghans in
the south, the Taliban's birth-
place and the home of the
country's Pashtun speaking
population, are leery of a gov-
ernment that many consider
to be corrupt and ineffective.
The problem is com-
pounded by a rapid reduc-
tion in American and
international aid, which fu-
eled most of the growth in the
south in recent years.

world's 10 poorest countries,
has received nearly $60 bil-

Isaac brings back painful memories of hurricane

Associated Press
loaded supplies into her car to pre-
pare for Isaac, Linda Grandison's
mind rewound to the nightmare of
Katrina: Back in 2005, she had to
flee her family's flooded home and
waited on a bridge for more than
three days before being rescued by
Though Isaac is far less powerful
than the historic hurricane that
crippled New Orleans, the system
was on an eerily similar path and
forecast to make landfall on the
seventh anniversary of Katrina,
raising familiar fears and old anxi-
eties in a city still recovering from a
near-mortal blow seven years ago.
This time, Grandison is not taking
any chances. She will stay with her
mother in the New Orleans suburb
of Gretna, which did not flood in
Katrina. The house has a generator
to keep the refrigerator running if
power goes out, and she has enough
charcoal to grill out for days.
"You can't predict God's work This
is nerve-wracking," she said. "I hate
leaving my house, worrying if it's

going to flood or get looted. But I'm
not going to stay in the city again."
If Isaac comes ashore here, it
will find a different city than the
one blasted by Katrina. This New
Orleans has a bigger, better levee
system and other improvements
designed to endure all but the most
destructive storms. Many neigh-
borhoods have rebuilt. Some re-
main desolate, filled with empty,
dilapidated homes.
The Army Corps of Engineers
was given about $14 billion to im-
prove flood defenses, and most of
the work has been completed. Ex-
perts say the city can handle a
storm comparable to a Category 3
hurricane. Isaac is expected to
come ashore as early as Tuesday
night as a Category 1 storm, strik-
ing anywhere from west of New Or-
leans to the Florida Panhandle.
Mayor Mitch Landrieu said he
understood residents' worries, but
tried to reassure them that the city
was prepared.
But people in this city aren't eas-
ily soothed because they've never
forgotten the images of families
stranded at the decrepit Louisiana

Superdome, people begging for
help at the convention center and
President Bush's back-slapping
congratulatory remarks to then-
FEMA Director Michael Brown.
Shawanda Harris lost everything
she owned when her ground-floor
apartment in low-lying eastern New
Orleans was flooded during Katrina.
She was on the phone with family
and friends Monday as she waited
for the latest update on Isaac from
the mayor. The neighborhood was
packing up and leaving.
Harris planned to caravan out of
the city with relatives and head in-
land to another family house out-
side New Orleans.
"People ain't taking chances
now," she said, keeping an eye on a
television that was swarmed with
the radar images of Isaac looming
over the Gulf of Mexico.
Harris said the preparations
were bringing back a lot of unease
and heartache reminiscent of 2005.
"It was scary My whole family
was separated. They couldn't find
me. The Red Cross had called and
told my mom that they found me
dead," she recalled.

Police commissioner defends force in NYC

Associated Press

NEW YORK The po-
lice shooting near the Em-
pire State Building last
week is a testament to how
quickly officers can fire off
16 rounds to take down an
armed suspect.
But the nine wounded by-
standers attest to another
truth: Officers often miss.
Police Commissioner
Raymond Kelly reiterated
Monday that officials believe
that two patrolmen followed

Jeffrey Johnson pulled a pis-
tol on them moments after
he ambushed a former co-
worker an assessment
supported by experts on po-
lice policy and training.

"When you're told that
someone just killed some-
one around the comer, and
five seconds later that per-
son identified as the
shooter points the gun at
you... it was the appropriate
action to take," Kelly said at
an unrelated press event in
midtown Manhattan.
Dramatic security video
of the Friday morning con-
frontation shows Johnson
pointing the weapon at the
officers, other pedestrians
scattering and the two offi-
cers firing one from very
close range, the other while
The police volley instantly
killed Johnson, who never
returned fire. Stray bullets,
ricochets and fragments

caused non-life-threatening
gunshot and graze wounds
to nine civilians. Two re-
mained hospitalized Mon-
day in stable condition.
Kelly called it "unfortu-
nate" that innocent people
were hurt. But, he added,
"Thank God, everybody is
going to be all right."
Still, the bloodshed was
another reminder of the pub-
lic safety challenges that first
emerged in the mid-1990s,
when the police department
abandoned bulky .38-caliber
revolvers and armed officers
with rapid-fire, 15-shot semi-
automatics. At the time, the
department claimed it
needed the more modern
weapons because criminals
outgunned officers.

The gunmen who grabbed
one of his distant cousins
called up his family while
they were torturing him "so
they could hear his
screams," said Abu Qais, an
anti-Assad activist who
spoke on condition his full
name not be used for fear of
Sectarian slaying be-
tween Syria's Sunni majority
and the Alawite minority
have been a brutal reality of
Syria's 17-month-old conflict,
and they have only acceler-
ated as the country falls into
outright civil war. Sunnis
have largely backed the up-
rising against Assad's rule,
while the Alawites mem-
bers of an offshoot of Shiism
- have firmly stood behind
the regime, where they fill
the leadership ranks.
And as tit-for-tat killings
have swelled, so has the seg-
regation of the two commu-
nities as they flee each
other. In Damascus and
other cities, Sunnis and
Alawites avoid venturing
into each other's neighbor-
hoods for fear of being
snatched. Some Alawite dis-
tricts in the capital are now
ringed with checkpoints
manned not only by security
forces but also residents
who have taken up arms to
protect their homes.
Those in mixed neighbor-
hoods flee their homes to
move into safer enclaves
dominated by their commu-
nity whether in the same
city or in another part of the
"Mutual threats in Dam-
ascus have succeeded in
triggering migration," said
Fateh Jamous, an Alawite
activist from Latakia, the
Mediterranean coastal city
where many Alawites have
fled. Latakia itself has so far
represented a sort of tense
neutral ground its popu-
lation is about half Sunni,
half Alawite. "That created
a sort of balance of terror So
far, it has been generally
peaceful," he said by tele-
phone from Latakia.
The flight raises the grim
possibility that Syria could go
down the path of neighboring
Iraq. There, violence in 2006
and 2007 effectively turned
into a sort of sectarian cleans-
ing, as Shiite and Sunni mili-
tias and insurgents targeted
members of the rival commu-
nity, killing thousands and
sending hundreds of thou-
sands fleeing their homes. To
this day, Baghdad remains
largely divided between
wholly Shiite and wholly
Sunni districts with few
mixed areas remaining.

Murray overcomes jitters to win at U.S. Open

Cowboys' Bryant
gets personal set
of strict guidelines
IRVING, Texas Dallas
Cowboys coach Jason
Garrett said Monday the
team has a set of guidelines
in place for Dez Bryant to
hold the talented young re-
ceiver accountable.
Garrett didn't go into
specifics or describe poten-
tial discipline for not abid-
ing by the rules. He said
the Cowboys want to sup-
port Bryant and his family.
According to numerous
reports, Bryant will attend
weekly counseling sessions,
have a security team and
not be allowed to consume
alcohol or attend strip clubs.
Bryant was arrested in
July for allegedly assault-
ing his mother, who has
since said she doesn't
want authorities to pursue
charges against him.
There is also still the
chance of discipline from the
NFL. Garrett said he didn't
know the status of that.
Bryant is going into his
third season with the Cow-
boys, who got him with the
24th overall draft pick.
Red Sox DH Ortiz
goes back on DL
BOSTON David Ortiz
doesn't want his season -
and possibly his Red Sox
career to end on the dis-
abled list.
The Red Sox placed
Ortiz back on the 15-day
disabled list Monday due to
lingering problems with a
strained right Achilles, but
the DH said he hopes to
play again this season.
The 36-year old Ortiz
said he'll have an injection in
the next day or so and hopes
to return in September. He
will become a free agent at
the end of the season.
Ortiz, who at times this
season has expressed dis-
appointment of not having
a multiyear deal, said he'd
like to come back in 2013.
Once called "the great-
est clutch hitter in Red Sox
history" by the club's own-
ership, Ortiz is in his 10th
season with the team.
Ortiz, who suffered the
injury in mid-July, returned
for Friday's win over Kansas
City, getting two hits and two
RBIs, but has not played
since due to discomfort.
He's hitting .318 with 23
homers and 60 RBIs.
Officials on lookout
for 'boosting'
at Paralympics
lympics officials, in addition
to testing for banned drugs,
will be looking for a prac-
tice called "boosting" where
wheelchair athletes use
painful stimuli to cause a
rise in blood pressure that
enhances performance.
In able-bodied athletes,
intense physical exercise
raises the heart rate and
blood pressure. Athletes with
a severe spinal cord injury
don't get that natural boost.
To get a rapid rise in blood
pressure, wheelchair-
bound athletes may resort
to another solution: inducing
a state called autonomic
dysreflexia. That is a reflex
that occurs when the lower
part of their body is exposed
to painful stimuli, such as
filling the bladder to capac-
ity, using tight leg straps, or
sitting on a sharp object.
This elevated blood
pressure can cause a heart
attack or stroke but
since the athletes can't feel
it, some think the risk is
worth taking. Studies have
shown athletes with a spinal
cord injury who boost can
get up to a 10 percent im-
provement in some races.
According to a report by
the World Anti-Doping

Agency, about 10 out of 60
athletes surveyed at the
Beijing Paralympics admit-
ted having boosted at a
major competition.

Murray weathered a slow
start in the latest stop of this
long, successful summer
Seeking that elusive first
Grand Slam title, Murray
began his U.S. Open cam-
paign Monday with a
straight-set victory over
Alex BogomolovJr that in-
cluded some hairy mo-
ments. The Olympic gold
medalist overcame early
breaks in the first two sets
of a 6-2, 6-4, 6-1 win.
The third-seeded Mur-
ray won the final five
games of the first set and

the last four games of the
second after falling behind
early against the 73rd-
ranked Bogomolov.
Murray, who won the
gold medal in his home
country at the London
Games, also reached the
final at Wimbledon.
Back at the site of her
greatest victory, Samantha
Stosur looked like a cham-
pion again, not the player
who has often struggled
this year
The Australian began
the defense of her Open
title with a dominant win,
needing 51 minutes to beat
64th-ranked Petra Martic

6-1, 6-1 in the tournament's
first match at Arthur Ashe
Stadium before rain sus-A
pended play for more than
two hours.
"As soon as I got here, it
was just a good feeling and
excitement to be back to a
city that obviously brought -
me so much last year," Sto-
sur said.
The last time Stosur
played on this court, she
stunned Serena Williams
in the 2011 final at Flush-
ing Meadows for her first
Grand Slam title. But in so Associated Press
many ways, that 6-2, 6-3 Britain's Andy Murray returns a shot to Alex Bogomolov Jr.,
of Russia, on Monday at the U.S. Open in New York. Murray

2012 VolleyballSEASON PREVIEW

Chronicle file photo
Citrus, Crystal River and Seven Rivers all start their 2012 volleyball seasons tonight, while Lecanto and senior
setter Lily Parrish welcome the Pirates to the Panthers' gym at 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Citrus high schools kick off their volleyball seasons tonight


Change seems
to be the key
word for the 2012
volleyball season.
Not so much in the rosters. In-
deed, each of the four high
schools brings back a solid nu-
cleus of returning players to
build around, which make the
prospects for the upcoming sea-
son seem bright. However, just
one of the four schools returns its
coach: Crystal River, whose Mike

Ridley enters his fourth season at
the helm.
"I guess I have a bit of tenure,"
Ridley noted, somewhat in jest.
New coaches won't mean com-
plete overhauls, though. The
three new coaches are all experi-
enced, having coached at the jun-
ior varsity level the previous
season and, in the case of Alice
Christian (Lecanto), served as the
coach at Citrus previously
Perhaps the most intriguing ad-
dition to the county's volleyball
coaching realm is that of David
Assumpcao at Citrus. Assumpcao,
who coached the Hurricanes'
boys soccer team previously,
comes from a country that rel-

ishes both soccer and volleyball:
Brazil. Assumpcao came to the
United States as an exchange stu-
dent when he was a senior in
high school. He lived and went to
school in Pauline, Iowa, before
attending a community college
and then enrolling at Mankato
State (now Minnesota State).
"I've been involved in volley-
ball since I was about 12," As-
sumpcao said. That includes his
current status he still plays
beach volleyball when he finds
the time.
Certainly he'll bring a bit of in-
ternational flavor to the game at

Rangers win 6-5

Associated Press
Adrian Beltre was 3 for 3
with a home run and four
RBIs, including the go-
ahead run in the bottom of
the fifth inning, to lead the
Texas Rangers to a 6-5 vic-
tory over the Tampa Bay
Rays on Monday night.
Elvis Andrus scored on
Beltre's single to give the
AL West leaders a series-
opening win. Nelson Cruz
also homered and Mike Olt
added an RBI for Texas.
Derek Holland (9-6) got
the win, giving up five runs
- three earned on six
hits in six innings. He struck
out five and walked one.
Relievers Alexi Ogando
and Mike Adams, and
closer Joe Nathan struck
out six of the nine hitters
they faced in working per-
fect seventh, eighth and
ninth innings. Nathan
earned his 23rd consecu-
tive save opportunity and
26th this season.
Tampa Bay ace David
Price (16-5) snapped a
stretch of 12 consecutive
quality starts in which he
had pitched at least seven
innings. The lefty, who en-
tered with a majors-low
2.28 ERA and tied for the
league lead for victories,
didn't make it to the fifth,
giving up six runs on 10 hits
in four innings.
In eight career regular-
season starts against the
Rangers, Price is 1-3 with a
6.04 ERA. In four starts at
Rangers Ballpark in Ar-
lington, his ERA is 10.26.
The Rays entered with
the AL's best road record
(35-27), but found they were
no match for Beltre.
Beltre, who was selected
AL player of the week after
a game of three home runs
and another in which he
hit for the cycle, is hitting
.385 with six homers and 13
RBIs in his last eight games.
Beltre, who reached base
a fourth time with a walk in
the seventh, and Cruz had
back-to-back home runs in
the bottom of the second to
erase a 2-0 deficit the
first time Price has allowed
consecutive homers in his
Olt's groundout to short-
stop Ben Zobrist drove in
the Rangers' third run.
Beltre's double with no
outs in the third scored
Elvis Andrus and Josh
Hamilton to make the
score 5-3. Price was able
to limit the damage by re-
tiring the next three hit-
ters on two groundouts
and a strikout of Geovany
B.J. Upton's run-scoring
triple and Zobrist's RBI
single tied the score at 5-all
in the fifth.
The Rays' Nos. 5-9 hit-
ters went 0 for 18 with eight

solo home run of the game in the fourth inning at Yankee Stadium in New York.

Cano's two homers not enough

Associated Press

NEW YORK Colby Rasmus hit a
three-run homer off Rafael Soriano
with two outs in the ninth inning and
the Toronto Blue Jays took advantage
of Derek Lowe's wild pickoff throw
in the 11th to beat the New York Yan-
kees 8-7 Monday night, snapping a
seven-game losing streak.
Moments after Rasmus' stunning
drive put Toronto ahead 7-6, Derek
Jeter tied it with a home run off
Casey Janssen. But the last-place
Blue Jays didn't cave, scratching out
a run two innings later to stop an
eight-game slide at Yankee Stadium.
The loss might be a costly one in
more ways than one for the AL East-
leading Yankees. Slugging first base-
man Mark Teixeira was pulled with
a strained left calf and sent to the
hospital for an MRI.
Yorvit Torrealba had a two-run
shot and Adam Lind also went deep
in his first plate appearance for the
banged-up Blue Jays since coming
off the disabled list. Missing slugger
Jose Bautista and several other reg-
ulars, Toronto had dropped a season-
worst eight straight on the road.
Robinson Cano homered twice and
Nick Swisher hit a two-run drive for
New York.
Torrealba singled leading off the
11th for his third hit and pinch-runner
Mike McCoy scampered to third when
Lowe's pickoff attempt got past first
baseman Eric Chavez and rolled into
foul territory up the right-field line.
Lowe (8-11) was charged with an error
After a strikeout, Adeiny Hechavar-
ria hit a slow grounder toward third
that forced Jayson Nix to charge the
ball. McCoy waited until Nix threw to
first, then dashed home and beat
Chavez's throw to the plate.
Darren Oliver (3-2) pitched two hit-
less innings for the win, Toronto's first
at Yankee Stadium since May 23, 2011.
Jeter lofted Janssen's second pitch
to right field, beyond a leaping Moi-
ses Sierra and into the front row of
seats behind the auxiliary scoreboard.
It was Jeter's 14th home run of the
season and fourth in seven games.
Rookie right-hander David Phelps
gave the Yankees another solid spot
start, this one in place of injured Ivan
Nova, and New York opened a 6-3
lead in the fifth on a two-run drive by
the streaking Swisher.
Hechavarria got Toronto's come-
back started with a two-out RBI sin-
gle off Cody Eppley in the seventh.
Sierra and Rajai Davis singled in
the ninth to bring up the slumping
Rasmus, who drove a breaking ball
deep into the second deck in right for
his 21st home run.
It was Soriano's third blown save
in 36 chances since replacing injured
closer Mariano Rivera in early May
On a night when it was downright
dangerous to be a Toronto pitcher,
four times the Yankees hit sharp
comebackers that caromed off the
body of a Blue Jays hurler
Henderson Alvarez took the worst
one, Russell Martin's hard grounder
that smacked off the right-hander's
leg in the fourth inning and careened
into shallow right field for an RBI

Red Sox 5, Royals 1
BOSTON Daisuke Matsuzaka re-
turned from the disabled list with his best
start of the season and Cody Ross drove
in three runs, leading the Boston Red Sox
to a 5-1 win over the Kansas City Royals.
The Red Sox took three of four games
in the wraparound series and won for the
second time in three games since trading
Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett and Carl
Crawford in a salary-dumping, nine-player
deal to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Jacoby Ellsbury had a solo homer and
double for Boston.
Matsuzaka (1-3), on the DL since early
July with a strained neck muscle, gave up
an unearned run and five hits, walking
two and striking out six over seven in-
nings in just his sixth start of the season.

Athletics 3, Indians 0
CLEVELAND Brett Anderson gave
up two hits, one on a questionable call,
over seven innings as the Oakland Athlet-
ics beat the Cleveland Indians 3-0.

Oakland came in one-half game be-
hind Tampa Bay in the AL wild-card race
and earned its ninth win in 11 games.
The Indians lost starter Roberto Her-
nandez (0-3) after 2 1-3 innings with a
sprained right ankle and fell to 5-24 since
July 27.
Anderson (2-0), in his second start
since returning from Tommy John surgery
in July 2011, retired the first 13 batters
until Michael Brantley was ruled safe with
an infield hit in the fifth inning. TV replays
showed that umpire Jerry Meals missed
the call.
Grant Balfour worked the ninth for his
15th save in 17 chances.

Orioles 4, White Sox 3
BALTIMORE Nate McLouth hit a
two-run homer in the eighth inning, Lew
Ford also connected and the Baltimore
Orioles rallied to beat the White Sox 4-3,
ending Chicago's six-game winning
It was the franchise-record 13th con-
secutive one-run win for the Orioles, who
trailed 2-1 in the sixth and 3-2 in the eighth.
After the White Sox went up 3-2 in the
eighth against Pedro Strop (5-2) on a run-
scoring infield single by Adam Dunn, Bal-
timore answered in the bottom half
against Brett Myers (2-2).
Mark Reynolds drew a one-out walk
and McLouth drove a 1-0 pitch far over
the wall in right-center. It was his third
RBI of the game and second home run
since the Orioles purchased his contract
from Triple-A Norfolk on Aug. 4.

Mariners 1, Twins 0
MINNEAPOLIS Felix Hernandez
struck out five in a five-hitter and Eric
Thames hit a solo homer in the eighth in-
ning to lift the Seattle Mariners to a 1-0
victory over the Minnesota Twins.
Hernandez (13-5), who picked up his
23rd career complete game and ninth
shutout, hasn't lost a decision since June
12. Franklin Gutierrez went 1 for 2 with
two stolen bases in his first game since
June 28 because of a concussion.
Liam Hendriks (0-7) was almost King-
like, but it wasn't quite enough to get him
his first career victory. He gave up three
hits and struck out six in nine outstanding
innings, his only blemish the homer to
Joe Mauer had a single and Justin
Morneau had a triple for the Twins, who
have lost 14 of their last 17.


Cardinals 4, Pirates 3
PITTSBURGH Matt Holliday hit a
tiebreaking home run and Kyle Lohse
won his eighth consecutive decision,
leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 4-3
victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Holliday led off the sixth inning with his
24th homer, a drive to right field offA.J.
Burnett that put St. Louis ahead for good
at 3-2.
Lohse (13-2) pitched five innings be-
fore being lifted following a 34-minute rain
delay in the top of the sixth. He allowed
two runs and five hits while striking out
three and walking none.
Lohse has not lost in 13 starts dating to
June 15 and raised his career record
against Pittsburgh to 9-2.

victory was starting to feel
as if it happened much
more than a year ago.
Stosur lost in the first
round in front of the home
fans at the 2012 Australian
Open. She lost in the second
round at Wimbledon, then
again in the first round at
the London Olympics.
Sandwiched in between,

Citrus, which is still trying
to rebuild its program. The
'Canes were winless a cou-
ple of years ago, but man-
aged to post four wins last
season. A possible run at a
berth in the regional tour-
nament is not out of the
question this season.
Both Lecanto and Crystal
River finished second in
their respective districts
last season, making trips to
their regional tournaments.
However, Seven Rivers
Christian could conceivably
be the team to look up to
this season.
How else can one de-
scribe a smaller school's
team with such stature? The
Warriors return sisters An-
drea and Alexis Zachar,
both over 6 feet tall, and
have some other sizable
players on their front line,
making them the tallest
team in the county.
Seven Rivers went 10-16
last year Under the guid-
ance of Wanda Grey this
season, the experienced
Warriors could be some-
thing special in 2A-3.
All four teams have their
first matches scheduled for
this week.

Citrus High School
Coach: David Assumpcao,
first year as head coach.
Last year's record: 4-10,
eliminated in district tour-
District: 6A-6.
Key returnees: Lindsay
Connors, senior, 5-foot-4
libero; Liz Lynch, senior, 5-
foot-3 defensive specialist;
Jessica Liptrat, senior, 5-
foot-7 setter; Kelly
Abramowich, junior, 5-foot-
9 setter; Amy Abramowich,
junior, 5-foot-9 outside hit-
Key newcomers: Kendra
Kirby, junior, 5-foot-10 mid-
dle hitter; Jordan Josey,
sophomore, 5-foot-6 middle
Key losses: Paige Garvin,
middle hitter; Mary
Wheeler, outside hitter
Outlook: Two years ago,
Citrus' volleyball team suf-
fered through a winless sea-
son. The Hurricanes battled
back from that ignominy to
win four matches last year
and both hopes and
prospects are higher this
season. First, in new coach
is David Assumpcao they
have a leader with a deep
background in the sport
The team also returns five
members of last year's team,
giving Assumpcao a founda-
tion to build on. So the

prospects sound good, but
there's still work to be done
for Citrus to become a con-
tender in 6A-6. The Hurri-
canes lack size up front,
which could prove to be a
sizable problem. Under-
classmen will have to fill
those pivotal positions for
Citrus to climb into a chal-
lenging position on the dis-
trict ladder
"We have to be able to hit
some plays, to finish some
plays," Assumpcao said.
"Plays get started but we
can't finish. That's the key,
to finish."

She was still nearly per-
fect, with 22 winners and 10
aces. She didn't face any
break points.
Ninth-seeded Li Na
reached the second round
for the first time since 2009,
beating Britain's Heather
Watson 6-2, 6-3. She's com-
ing off a victory in Cincin-
nati, her first title since the
2011 French Open.
Li was a top-10 seed
when she lost in the first
round at Flushing Mead-
ows in each of the previous
two years.
Marion Bartoli of France,
seeded 11th, defeated
American Jamie Hampton
6-3, 7-6 (5), and 19th-seeded
Nadia Petrova of Russia ad-
vanced with a 6-3, 7-6 (3) win
over Jarmila Gajdosova of
It was a rough first day for
the German women, with
16th-seeded Sabine Lisicki
and 18th-seeded Julia Go-
erges both losing.
The American men got off
to a good start with wins by
two wild cards, 32-year-old
James Blake and 19-year-
old Jack Sock.
Sock took a two-set lead
over Florian Mayer before
the No. 22 seed quit after
feeling faint and dizzy Sock
won the U.S. Open boys
championship in 2010, be-
coming the first American to
take that title since Andy

Crystal River
High School
Coach: Mike Ridley,
fourth year
Last year's record: 15-10
overall, 6-4 in district.
District 5A-7.
Key returnees: Casidy
Newcomer, senior tri-cap-
tain, 5-foot-6 outside hitter;
Sabrina Scott, senior tri-
captain, 5-foot-2 setter/right-
side hitter; Emily Laga,
senior tri-captain, 5-foot-2
libero; Olivia Hudson, junior,
5-foot-10 middle blocker;
Laynee Nadal, junior, 5-foot
defensive specialist
Key newcomers: Kylie
Sisk, senior, 5-foot-6 setter
(transfer from Lecanto);
Jamie Jaster, senior, 5-foot-6
middle blocker/outside hit-
ter; Megan Creech, senior, 5-
foot-7 outside hitter; Aspen
Phillips, junior, setter; Sam
Pauley, junior, defensive
specialist; Delaney Owens,
junior, defensive specialist;
Marissa Pool, junior, 5-foot-
6 middle blocker
Key losses: Megan Unver-
dorben, middle hitter;
Olivia Hurn, outside hitter;
Ashley Allen, outside hitter;
Megan Rea, setter
Outlook: In 2011, the Pi-
rates took a trip to the re-
gional tournament, just like
they did the year before and
the year before that. "It was
a good season," said return-
ing coach Mike Ridley It
will take a team effort to re-
peat that outcome.
Crystal River's strength
appears to be defensive.
The Pirates' size isn't over-
whelming, but they do have
experience. "We're working
hard on our defense and our
overall adjusting to attacks,"
Ridley said. "It's going to
take our defense to be really
strong. Our strengths are
our back-row players, led by
Emily Laga."
Laga was all-county last
season and, until a reliable
attack can be developed, it
will be defense that must
carry the team. "We're look-
ing for all of our players to
step up and contribute of-
fensively," Ridley said. The
5A-7 battle won't be easy, al-
though defending champ
Brooksville Nature Coast
graduated most of its start-
ing lineup. Brooksville Her-
nando, Tavares and Crystal
River occupied the next three
spots in the standings and
they all split their matches a
year ago, leaving this sea-
son's outcome wide open.

Lecanto High School
Coach: Alice Christian (ju-
nior varsity coach last year).
Last year's record: 12-11.
District 6A-6.
Key returnees: Courtney

Rymer, senior, 5-foot-7 set-
ter; Amber Atkinson, senior,
5-foot-5 outside hitter; Marie
Buckley, senior, 5-foot-11
outside hitter; Savannah
Weller, senior, 5-foot-2
libero; Amanda Pitre, sen-
ior, 5-foot-7 middle hitter;
Lily Parrish, senior, 5-foot-4
setter; Katie Schulze, senior,
5-foot-7 middle hitter
Key newcomer: Shannon
Fernandez, sophomore, 5-8
middle hitter
Key losses: Annamaria
DiLascio, middle hitter
Outlook: Experience
won't be lacking on this sea-


Roddick, 10 years earlier
He came into this year's
tournament ranked 248th
and without a win over a
top-50 player
Sock was ahead 6-3,6-2,3-
2 when Mayer retired.
Blake reached the second
round of a Grand Slam
event for the first time this
year, beating Lukas Lacko 7-
5, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3. He had
needed a wild card to make
his 12th appearance at the
Open after his ranking fell
out of the top 100. He hadn't
lost in the first round at
Flushing Meadows since his
debut in 1999.
Blake, who has twice
made the quarterfinals at
the Open, won the first two
sets against the 54th-
ranked Lacko before the
rain delay.

son's Panthers team. Re-
turning from last year's team,
which made it to the re-
gional tournament, are seven
seniors, each with some
playing experience. Even
the arrival of a new coach -
Alice Christian takes over
this season won't require
major changes. Christian,
former varsity coach at Cit-
rus, served as Lecanto's jun-
ior varsity coach last season.
"It's a big plus that they
already know the rotation,
where to be on offense and
defense," Christian said. "It's
a big hurdle to get over"
Having seven seniors back
from a team that took 6A-6
champ Springstead to five
sets in the title match helps,
too. "The girls are experi-
enced," Christian said. "We
have a lot of potential. They
know what to do. And they
can jump. The good thing is,
five of them play club ball,
too, and it's always good
when you play year-round."
There's a lot going for
Lecanto this season, includ-
ing serving as host to the 6A-
6 district tournament. If the
Panthers can match last
year's growth, they could be
making an even deeper trip
into the state tournament.

Seven Rivers
Christian School
Coach: Wanda Grey (ju-
nior varsity coach last year).
Last year's record: 10-16.
District 2A-3.
Key returnees: Alexis
Zachar, junior, 6-foot-4 mid-
dle/outside hitter; Andrea
Zachar, senior, 6-foot-2 mid-
dle hitter/setter; Daniette
St. Martin, senior, 5-foot-6
outside hitter; Alyssa Gage,
sophomore, 5-foot-7 setter;
Allison Green, senior, 5-foot-
3 defensive specialist; Tiana
Miele, senior, 5-foot-2 defen-
sive specialist; Milena Kacer,
senior, 5-foot-4 defensive
specialist; Jasmine Fisher,
senior, 5-foot-8 outside hit-
ter; Kaitlen Fenton, senior,
5-foot-6 front/back row.
Key newcomers: Emily
Whitchurch, senior (did not
play last year), 5-foot-10 hit-
ter; Julia Eckart, sopho-
more, 5-foot-8 outside hitter
Key losses: None.
Outlook: Everything seems
to be lining up well for Seven
Rivers Christian in its quest
for something beyond 2A-3.
The Warriors have experi-
ence, size and enough all-
around talent to challenge
any team in the county. Nine
members return from last
year's team, including five
starters. "This team has ex-
perience first, with defen-
sive height and jumping
ability," said Grey "And as

far as character and person-
ality go, this is one of the
best groups I've ever
worked with.
"It's hard to see much
weakness in these girls. We
do have some things to work
on, but as soon as we men-
tion them they're taken care
Seven Rivers, which
opens its season tonight at
Belleview, will face its
biggest 2A-3 challenge from
Gainesville Cornerstone,
which will host the district
tournament. "And Lecanto
beat us last year," Grey said.
"We look forward to turning
that around."

The exterior of a Shoreham, N.Y., building that once housed the laboratory of physicist/inventor Nicola Tesia sits
unkempt in this undated photo. In little more than a week, donors from more than 100 countries have kicked in
about $1 million through a social media website to pay for the restoration of the 110-year-old laboratory built for
the visionary scientist who experimented with wireless communication and envisioned a world of free electricity.

Nickels for Nikola

Cartoonist's web campaign raises $1 million to restore Testa's lab

Associated Press

A jolt of support from a popu-
lar Web cartoonist has re-
energized a decades-long
effort to restore a decrepit, 110-year-
old laboratory once used by Nikola
Tesla, a visionary scientist who was
a rival of Thomas Edison and imag-
ined a world of free electricity.
In little more than a week, tens
of thousands of donors from more
than 100 countries have kicked
more than $1 million through a so-
cial media fundraising website to
pay for the restoration of Nikola
Tesla's Wardenclyffe laboratory,
located about 65 miles east of
New York City. A small band of
followers who have struggled to
establish a science and research
museum and learning center in
his honor are giddy with delight
about the lightning-quick re-
sponse they have received.
"Enormously, overwhelmingly,
astounding," is how Jane Alcorn,
president of the Tesla Science
Center at Wardenclyffe and a re-
tired school librarian, described
her feelings about the project's
newfound fortune. The not-for-
profit formed about 17 years ago
had managed to secure a state
matching grant of $850,000 but
had amassed only about $50,000
for the project. Its goal at times
seemed insurmountable.
Then this summer Alcorn learned
Matthew Inman, a cartoonist who
runs theoatmeal.com, posted a
tribute to the scientist titled "Why
Nicola Tesla is the Greatest Geek
Who Ever Lived." Supporters of
the Long Island effort reached out

Tesla museum fundraiser:

to Inman, a 27-year-old who lives
in Seattle, and he and Alcorn
began speaking.
Last week, he posted a request
for donations on IndieGoGo, a
fundraising website, and the re-
sponse was nearly instantaneous.
At 6 p.m. on Aug. 15, the plea went
out, and before Alcorn went to
bed that night, donors had given
nearly a quarter million dollars.
"I was blown away by that," Al-
corn said. "I kept refreshing the
page and refreshing the page and
the number kept going up. I went to
bed after 1 that night, but I didn't
really get any sleep, to be honest."
Inman, who is in Japan this
week on business, told The Asso-
ciated Press that he thinks "Tesla
would be very pleased to see this
many people kind of worshipping
him as this geek hero" and backing
it up with credit card donations by
the thousands to restore his lab.
Tesla amassed hundreds of
patents for his discoveries over
his lifetime. Among his most notable
accomplishments are his work in
developing alternating current and
other research in the creation of
wireless communication and radio.
He worked for Edison in the 1880s,
but later became a rival. Tesla
died in New York City in 1943.
For about 15 years in the early
1900s, Tesla worked at the lab in
Shoreham, which was designed by
noted architect Sanford White. He

conducted experiments with wire-
less electricity and erected a 187-
foot tower Alcorn said was to be
the centerpiece of a worldwide
communications and energy sys-
tem. But after he lost funding for
the project, it was torn down in
Inman's cartoon also ignited an
intense online discussion be-
tween supporters of Edison and
Tesla over whose contributions to
science were greater, he said.
"I realized how damn awesome
it was that the whole Internet was
getting in this raging debate about
inventors who have been dead for
70 years or more," Inman said.
Beginning in the 1930s, the
Tesla site was used as a photo
chemical processing plant, but
that was closed in 1993 after it
was determined the area's
groundwater had been polluted
with cadmium and silver The cur-
rent owners, Belgian-based AGFA
Corp., worked for years to decon-
taminate the site, and regulators
deemed the remediation com-
plete this year
Alcorn said one of the group's
best supporters is Long Island
filmmaker Joe Sikorski. He do-
nated $33,000 to the effort this
week, officially pushing the
fundraising goal over its $850,000
target to meet the offer of state
matching funds. "People don't un-
derstand the historical signifi-
cance," Sikorski said. "Not only
did Sanford White design the lab-
oratory, which is notable in itself,
but Tesla hoped to give free wire-
less energy to the world from this
site. Tesla sacrificed everything
for this, and he died penniless."

Today in

Today is Tuesday, Aug. 28,
the 241st day of 2012. There
are 125 days left in the year.
Today's Highlight:
On Aug. 28, 1862, the
Second Battle of Bull Run
(also known as Second Man-
assas) began in Prince
William County, Va., during
the Civil War (the result was
a Confederate victory).
On this date:
In 1609, English sea ex-
plorer Henry Hudson and his
ship, the Half Moon, reached
present-day Delaware Bay.
In 1922, the first-ever radio
commercial aired on station
WEAF in New York City (the
10-minute advertisement was
for the Queensboro Realty Co.,
which had paid a fee of $100).
In 1955, Emmett Till, a
black teenager from Chicago,
was abducted from his uncle's
home in Money, Miss., by two
white men after he had sup-
posedly whistled at a white
woman; he was found bru-
tally slain three days later.
In 1963, more than 200,000
people listened as the Rev.
Martin Luther King Jr. deliv-
ered his "I Have a Dream"
speech in front of the Lincoln
Memorial in Washington, D.C.
In 1990, an F5 tornado
struck the Chicago area,
killing 29 people.
Ten years ago: Prosecu-
tors indicted WorldCom's for-
mer chief financial officer,
Scott Sullivan, and Buford
Yates Jr., WorldCom's former
director of general account-
ing. (Sullivan, accused of
overseeing a long-running
conspiracy to hide operating
expenses in order to boost
WorldCom's earnings, later
admitted guilt and was sen-
tenced to five years in prison.
Yates later pleaded guilty to
securities fraud and conspiracy
and agreed to help prosecu-
tors; he was sentenced to one
year and one day in prison.)
Five years ago: After re-
ports surfaced of his June ar-
rest at the Minneapolis airport,
Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho,
told a news conference the
only thing he'd done wrong
was to plead guilty after a po-
lice complaint of lewd con-
duct in a men's room; Craig
also declared, "I am not gay. I
never have been gay."
One year ago: A suicide
bomber blew himself up in-
side Baghdad's largest Sunni
mosque, killing 29 people
during prayers.
Today's birthdays: Former
Defense Secretary William S.
Cohen is 72. MLB manager Lou
Piniella is 69. Actress Barbara
Bach is 66. Singer Wayne
Osmond (The Osmonds) is
61. Actor Daniel Stern is 55.
Country singer Shania Twain
is 47. Country singer LeAnn
Rimes is 30.

Iraq burger boom

Fast foodfinds
fans in Baghdad
AP Business Writer
BAGHDAD Baghdad's embat-
tled residents can finally get their
milkshakes, chili-cheese dogs and
buckets of crispy fried chicken.
Original recipe or extra spicy, of
A wave of new American-style
restaurants is spreading across the
Iraqi capital, enticing customers
hungry for alternatives to tradi-
tional offerings like lamb kebabs
and fire-roasted carp.
The fad is a sign that Iraqis, sad-
dled with violence for years and
still experiencing almost daily
bombings and shootings, are pre-
pared to move on and embrace or-
dinary pleasures like stuffing
their faces with pizza.
Iraqi entrepreneurs and in-
vestors from nearby countries, not
big multinational chains, are driv-
ing the food craze. They see Iraq as
an untapped market of increas-
ingly adventurous eaters where
competition is low and the poten-
tial returns are high.
"We're fed up with traditional
food," said government employee
Osama al-Ani as he munched on
pizza at one of the packed new
restaurants last week. "We want to
try something different."
Among the latest additions is a
sit-down restaurant called Chili
House. Its glossy menu touts Cae-
sar salads and hot wing appetizers
along with all-American entrees
like three-way chili, Philly cheese-
steaks and a nearly half-pound
"Big Mouth Chizzila" burger
On a recent afternoon, uni-
formed servers navigated a two-
story dining room bustling with
extended families and groups of
teenagers. Toddlers wandered
around an indoor play area.
The restaurant, located in the
upscale neighborhood of
Jadiriyah, is connected to Bagh-
dad's only branch of Lee's Famous
Recipe Chicken, a U.S. chain con-
centrated in a handful of Midwest-
ern and Southern states.
Azad al-Hadad, managing direc-
tor of a company called Kurdistan
Bridge that brought the restau-
rants to Iraq, said he and his fellow
investors decided to open them be-
cause they couldn't find decent
fried chicken and burgers in Iraq.
He called the restaurants a safe in-
vestment for companies like his
that are getting in early He already
has plans to open several more
branches in the next six months.
"Everybody likes to eat and
dress up. This is something that
brings people together," he said.
"People tell us: 'We feel like we're
out of Baghdad. And that makes us

feel satisfied."'
Baghdad's Green Zone and
nearby U.S. military bases once
sported outposts of big American
chains, including Pizza Hut,
Burger King and Subway, but they
shut down as American troops left
last year. Because they were hid-
den behind checkpoint-controlled
fortifications, most ordinary Iraqis
never had a chance to get close to
them, anyway
Yum Brands Inc., owner of the
Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and KFC
chains, has no plans to return to
Iraq for now, spokesman Christo-
pher Fuller said. Burger King de-
clined to comment on its Iraq
plans, and Subway did not
Dining out in Iraq is not without
risk. Ice cream parlors, restaurants
and caf6s were among the targets
of a brutal string of attacks that
tore through Iraq on Aug. 16, leav-
ing more than 90 people dead.
Iraqis say the chance to relax in
clean surroundings over a meal
out is worth the gamble. For them,
the restaurants are a symbol of
"This gives you a feeling the
country's on the right track," said
Wameed Fawzi, a chemical engi-
neer enjoying Lee's fried chicken
strips with his wife Samara.
Baghdad's Mansour district is
the heart of the fast-food scene.
At the height of sectarian fight-
ing in 2006 and 2007, it was tough
to find shops open along the neigh-
borhood's main drag. Militants tar-
geted shop owners in a campaign

to undermine government efforts
to restore normality.
These days, roads are packed
with cars. The traditional Arabic
restaurants long popular here now
find themselves competing against
foreign-sounding rivals such as
Florida Fried Chicken, Mr. Potato,
Pizza Boat and Burger Friends.
There is even a blatant KFC
knockoff called KFG, which owner
Zaid Sadiq insists stands for Ken-
tucky Family Group. He said he
picked the name because he
wanted something similar to the
world-famous fried chicken chain.
And he believes his chicken is just
as good.
"In the future my restaurant will
be as famous as KFC. Why not?" he
One of Mansour's newest addi-
tions is Burger Joint, a slick shop
serving up respectable burgers and
milkshakes to a soundtrack that in-
cludes Frank Sinatra. It is the cre-
ation of VQ Investment Group, a
firm with operations in Iraq and
the United Arab Emirates.
Its Mansour store is outfitted
with stylish stone walls and flat-
screen televisions. Another branch
just opened across town in the
commercial district of Karradah.
The group also runs the Iraq
franchises of Pizza Pizza, a Turkish
chain, and is planning to launch a
new hot submarine sandwich
brand called Subz.
Mohammed Sahib, VQ's execu-
tive manager in Iraq, said business
has been good so far.
Even so, running a restaurant in

Iraq is not without its challenges.
Burger Joint's servers had to
give up the iPads they originally
used to take orders because the In-
ternet kept cutting out, he said.
Finding foreign ingredients such
as Heinz ketchup and year-round
supplies of lettuce is also tricky,
and many customers need help un-
derstanding foreign menu items
like milkshakes and cookies.
Health experts are predictably
not thrilled about the new arrivals.
"The opening of these Ameri-
can-style restaurants ... will make
Iraqis, especially children, fatter,"
said Dr. Sarmad Hamid, a physi-
cian at a Baghdad government hos-
pital. But even he acknowledged
that the new eateries aren't all bad.
"People might benefit psycho-
logically by sitting down in a quiet,
clean and relatively fancy place
with their families, away from the
usual chaos in Iraqi cities," he
Purveyors of traditional Iraqi
specialties, who might be expected
to oppose the foreign-looking im-
ports, don't seem to mind at all.
Ali Issa is the owner of fish
restaurant al-Mahar, which spe-
cializes in masgouf, the famous
Iraqi roasted carp dish. He said
every country in the world has
burger and fried chicken restau-
rants, so why shouldn't Iraq?
Besides, he said, he and his fam-
ily are fans of "Kentucky," the
name Iraqis use for fried chicken,
regardless of where it's made.
"Sometimes we need Kentucky.
Not just fish, fish, fish," he said.



ver the past six
months or so, there
has been a lot of de-
bate about the use of the
PSA blood test as a screen-
ing tool. I have been stead-
fast in my opinion that the
PSA test and screening for
prostate cancer has saved
lives, and now there is
even more data to support
that belief
According to a new
study published in The
Journal of Urology, the in-
troduction of prostate spe-
cific antigen (PSA) testing
for screening and moni-
toring prostate cancer has
improved survival rates
for patients whose disease
has metastasized to other
areas of the body In addi-
tion, PSA testing has
helped to close the gap in
the disparity that we had
once seen between black
and Caucasian men.
In this analysis, the data
indicates an overall im-
provement in survival

The magic of hearing

n many previous articles I have
discussed ear problems and
hearing loss issues, and I think
it is time to revisit the basic struc-
ture of the ear It is such
a marvelous and sophis-
ticated organ.
I am going to describe
how hearing works and
its magic we benefit
from multiple times a
day and take for granted ,
- until something hap-
pens to our ears.
Your ears are an in-
credibly sophisticated Dr. Den
and well-organized EAR,
organ system that can & TH
detect low rumbles, bass
noises as well as high-
pitched electronic sounds and
birds chirping, and take in and de-
cipher the different and complex
sounds of human speech and envi-
ronmental noises.
The ear works in conjunction
with the brain. The brain has cen-
ters that receive information from
the ear and can tell you where
sound is coming from. This is ac-
complished through having two in-
struments to gather sound.
Your ear, the external portion,
collects sound, thus the reason it is
shaped the way it is and transmits
these sounds to the brain which
acts like a computer and processes
all these signals. If sound is on your
right side, it will arrive to the brain
via the right ear sooner than the
left ear and will be louder, thus al-
lowing the brain to make decisions
such as which way to turn and look



to locate the source of that sound.
This simple process occurs, for ex-
ample, if you are in a shopping
mall and someone calls out your

This includes the malleus, which is
commonly called the hammer; the
middle bone is the incus, which is
commonly called the anvil and the
third and final bone that butts up
against the inner ear is called the
stapes or, as it is also commonly
known, the stirrup.
Conditions in the middle ear are
regulated by the eustachian tube, a
passageway that connects the mid-
dle ear to the back of the nose. When
functioning well, it will maintain
equal air pressure on both sides of
the eardrum so it can vibrate prop-
erly. This area is frequently affected
by colds, viruses and allergies, and

Bladder cancer symptoms the rise

ladder cancer is most often
seen in the elderly, with the
median age of 73 at diagno-
sis but can occur in much younger
people. The condition is
more common in men,
and it has been esti-
mated that one in 42 men
and women will be diag-
nosed with bladder can-
cer in their lifetime.
More than 90 percent
of the bladder cancers
arise from the cells that
line the inner surface of Dr. Uda
the bladder and are a
called urothelial or tran- URO
sitional cell cancers TOI
Though many bladder
tumors are labeled malignant, most
are confined to the superficial
layer of the bladder, where they
can be treated and controlled be-
fore they spread. However, they re-
quire regular cystoscopies or
telescopic examinations of the
bladder, so that any recurrences
can be diagnosed and treated early
What are the symptoms of blad-
der cancer? The presence of blood
in the urine is the most common
presentation. Even blood that is not
visible and detected only on testing
requires further investigation.
While burning or pain on urina-
tion is more commonly due to uri-
nary infection, if such symptoms
persist even after treatment of sus-
pected urinary infection, they need
to be investigated to rule out blad-
der tumors.

are usually due to prostate en-
largement in men or overactive
bladder, but the persistence of such
problems may be related to blad-
der cancer. So please
*- consult your physician if
such symptoms persist.
Smoking is the most
important risk factor
and, as bladder cancer
often takes several years
to develop, the problem
can present even many
years after a person

Some occupations

ucts, solvents, organic chemicals
and dyes.
Last year, the FDA issued a
warning to patients on Actos (pi-
oglitazone), a diabetes drug, that it
may pose a bladder cancer risk.
Patients who have bladder can-
cer should probably discontinue
the drug after consulting their doc-
tor, and those with a history of blad-
der cancer should be carefully
When evaluating blood in the
urine, your urologist will likely
order a scan of your kidneys and a
bladder examination. A biopsy of
the bladder is required if an ab-
normal area is seen on the bladder
examination. If bladder cancer is
confirmed on the biopsy, further
treatment may be needed.

Tobacco abuse is the
single most haz-
ardous health habit
in the USA and around
the world. We all know it
increases the risk of many
cancers, including lung,
throat, mouth, nasal cav-
ity, esophagus, stomach,
pancreas, kidney, bladder
and cervix, and acute
myeloid leukemia.
People who smoke are
up to six times more likely
to suffer a heart attack
than nonsmokers, and the
risk increases with the
number of cigarettes
smoked. Smoking also
causes most cases of
chronic lung disease.
The popularity of ciga-
rette smoking in the
United States continues to
decline, but it appears
many smokers are turning
to less-heavily taxed ci-
gars and loose tobacco, ac-
cording to a report
published in the Aug. 3
issue of the U.S. Centers

Mortality Weekly Report.
The researchers found
that, although cigarette
consumption fell 32.8 per-
cent from 2000 to 2011,
consumption of cigars and
loose tobacco rose 123.1
percent during that time.

Sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll: Easy listening advice

D o you realize
how much your
health philoso-
phy affects all other as-
pects of your life?
Would you be surprised
to learn that the drugs
you take affect your sex
life, your ability to hear
and dance to your fa-
vorite music? Dr. C
Even non-steroidal McFarla
anti-inflammatory BET
drugs cause ear ringing
with accompanying HEA
temporary high-pitched
tone, while moderate to maximum
doses of these can affect your bal-
ance and the ability to dance.
Beginning more than 50 years
ago, we were told aspirin is good for
you and Motrin/ ibuprofen is just as
safe and even more effective.
Twenty years ago, we were told


naproxene/Aleve is just
as safe. The philosophy
that the non-steroidal
(NSAIDS) are not only
harmless, but also good
for you, has taken its toll
on our health. In the
U.S. alone, more than
100 doses per person
per year are taken; this
is on top of medications
for adult-onset diabetes
and for heart disease.
A paper published in
the British Journal of

Urology International, November
2011, stated "the number of med-
ications a man takes is associated
with worse E.D. (sexual dysfunc-
tion)." This holds true even con-
sidering the other diagnoses of the
men as these were taken into ac-
count. A significant 15.9 percent of

men reported worse E.D. for tak-
ing two or fewer drugs, and this in-
creased to 30 percent when the
men took 10 or more drugs.
Profit-wise, in this country the
pharmaceutical companies sell
more erection-enhancing drugs
than blood pressure and diabetes
medication combined. Dollar-
wise, this is a very lucrative busi-
ness for the pharmacies.
Long-term use of these E.D. drugs
causes a tolerance to them, with
diminishing beneficial effects.
Controlling diabetes with diet
and exercise reduces the need for
the glucose-lowering drugs. Danc-
ing, walking, bicycling and swim-
ming, together with diet, reduce
the need for cholesterol-lowering
drugs. These activities together
with a low-inflammatory diet will
reduce the need for pain reliev-
ers, as well.

Eliminating smoking and re-
ducing alcohol intake are the top-
priority lifestyle modifications to
eliminate E.D. This advice was re-
quested of me to dispense when
Dr Oz asked me to help the people
of Tampa Bay at the Pepin Heart
Institute the day we performed
free health screenings. These
exams included blood lipid levels,
blood pressure tests and blood
glucose levels. All of these factors
affect E.D., heart health and can-
cer risk.
In my practice, I also focus on
hormone levels.
Having enough testosterone
gives men and women more en-
ergy and libido. This hormone
level drops in both sexes in mid-
dle age. I supplemented my prog-
esterone level with a cream and
increased my testosterone level
with an oral supplement that is

made from Elk antler velvet. I
have had nonstop energy all day
long without any jittery feeling
and lost two clothing sizes.
My husband began taking the
oral supplement when he saw
what it did for me (I had already
been on the natural progesterone

Health NOTES

Michelle Mongeluzzo of
Kids Central will speak about
Kinship Care, the unique chal-
lenges of raising a child not
your own, and possible solu-
tions to those challenges at
10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Aug.
29, at the Chet Cole Life En-
richment Center at the Key
Training Center, 5521 Buster
Whitton Way, Lecanto campus.
The presentation is free and
open to the public.
Extended family members
raising children often face
guardianship, legal and funding
issues that natural families
never face. There are also per-
sonal issues that might arise.
Children might be dealing with
emotional problems when
moved from their natural par-
ents or family. Grandparents,
especially, may have health is-
sues that complicate the new
job of parenting.
Extended family members
are often called upon to take
over the care of a disabled
adult if the caregiving parent
dies. Dealing with schools and
adult agencies becomes a full-
time job.

Hopper at 352-344-0288.

How safe are carbonated soft drinks? FDA knows

q) Does the Food
and Drug Ad-
(FD ) monitor the
safety of soft drinks?
A: Yes, The Food and
Drug Administration
(FDA) ensures that car-
bonated soft drinks are
safe, sanitary, and hon-
estly labeled. In fact,
the FDA has estab-
lished "Current Good
Manufacturing Prac-
tices" (CGMPs) for car-

Richard Hoffmann

bonated soft drinks, which
describe the basic steps manufac-
turers and distributors must fol-
low to make sure carbonated soft

drinks are safe.
Only food and color
additives that are de-
termined to be safe,
based on scientific in-
formation available to
the FDA, may be used
in carbonated soft
For example, this
might include additives
such as citric acid as a
flavoring or a preserva-
tive, or caramel color-
ing. In addition, the

materials the carbonated soft
drink comes in contact with, such
as the bottles and cans in which it
is sold, also are strictly regulated

for safety.
The Nutrition Facts Panel on
carbonated soft drinks typically
includes the serving size and the
nutrients provided in a serving:
calories, total fat, sodium, total
carbohydrate, sugars (if present),
and protein.
If a nutrient content claim, such
as "Very Low Sodium," appears on
the label, the manufacturer must
also add the statement "Not a sig-
nificant source of __ ," with
the blank filled in by the names of
nutrients that are present only at
insignificant levels.
Soft drink containers must also
Name and address of the man-

ufacturer, packer or distributor
The amount of carbonated
soft drink in the container
All the ingredients, listed in
order of predominance by weight.
In other words, the ingredient that
weighs the most is listed first, and
the ingredient that weighs the
least is last. For carbonated soft
drinks, the first ingredient usually
will be carbonated water.
Any chemical preservatives
used, with an explanation of their
function. Examples include
"preservative," "to retard
spoilage," "a mold inhibitor," "to
help protect flavor," "to preserve
freshness," or "to promote color

Diet carbonated soft drinks
containing phenylalanine must
also include the statement,
individuals who suffer from
phenylketonuria, a genetic disor-
der in which the body can't
process that amino acid. If the
phenylalanine level gets too high
in these individuals, it can dam-
age the brain.

'Embarrassed by my mouth'- cosmetic dentistry

Q I hope you can
help me. I am
so embar-
rassed by my mouth not "
to mention the pain I
am in because of con-
tinuous infections. I am
45 years old and have
gotten to the point
where I have to get my
mouth taken care of. Dr. F
My husband and I Vasc:
have just moved to Cit- SOUND
rus County, and before I
start looking for a job I
want to get my teeth fixed. All of
my back teeth have already been
removed two years ago. All I have
left are my front teeth on the top
and stubs for my bottom front
The top teeth are badly decayed
and the bottom ones get all the

I am afraid to take
the first step to go to the
dentist, so I thought I
would write to you first
I I want my teeth out and
dentures made.
I might want im-
-S" plants in the future, but
have to figure out how
to afford this first.
'rank I hope you can help
imini me get over my
) BITES nervousness.
A: First of all, thanks
for sending this ques-
tion in. It is the start of something
very exciting for you.
I know the thought of all of this
can be overwhelming to you. How-
ever, I have seen many people
with your exact circumstances
have a life-changing event sur-
rounding the restoration of their

The end result can be
Patients have gone from ignor-
ing their appearance to wearing
makeup, going to the hair stylist
and starting a whole new
wardrobe. Incidentally, a lot of
what I will say in my response ap-
plies to any cosmetic dentistry
done, not just what I am consider-
ing appropriate for you.
From what you have described,
it sounds as though the best plan
for you will be to have what we
call immediate dentures made.
What this means for you is that
your dentist takes impressions of
your teeth and gums as they are
and makes you a set of teeth. You
and your dentist will choose the
color and shape of your teeth.
Pictures of you with your teeth
before the decay you now have
can be very helpful. You can point

out things that you liked about
them and things you would like to
see different.
You can also bring in magazine
photos that you like and show
them to your dentist. In many
cases, things you like about smiles
and appearance can be incorpo-
rated into your smile.
Once all of the details are
worked out, your teeth will be re-
moved and the dentures will be
put in. By doing things this way,
you never go without teeth. There
will be a period of adjustment to
your new teeth.
During this time, your dentist
will make any necessary adjust-
ment to the dentures for your
At some time in the future, your
dentist will either reline or re-
make your teeth. This decision de-
pends on many factors.

I hope this has helped put you
at ease. If you focus on the end re-
sult and not the steps to get there
you will do great. I have been wit-
ness to so many success stories.
Like so many things in life, if
you know where you are and
where you want to be, all you have
to do it take the right steps in be-
tween and before you know it you
are there.

Methodist women gather in Daytona Beach

What a pleasure it is to return to
the Florida Conference of
United Methodist Women's
School of Christian Mission each July
for a week of Bible study, fellowship,
training and fun. We alternate every
two years between the Florida South-
ern College in Lakeland and the
Bethune Cookman University in Day-
tona Beach. This year we were at
Bethune Cookman. Our studies were
related to immigration and poverty
this year Women, youths and children
Our theme for the week was "That
All May Live." We rise for morning
watch at 7 a.m., led by local
laity and clergy, which in-
cludes singing, prayer and a
devotional. In addition to
classes, there is a learning
center where mission proj-
ects are displayed from
throughout the conference.
There is a literature room, a
prayer room and an audio-
visual room. We stay in the
students' dormitories and Ruth
eat in the cafeteria with sum- AROU
mer school students. ROU
We receive a "Daily Gene- COMM
sis" newsletter that keeps us
informed of activity opportunities and
special events, including the Youth
Talent show. We attend a morning and
evening plenary together and one
evening is set aside for district fellow-
My "Immigration and the Bible"
teacher was Dr Carolyn Johnson, di-
rector of the Diversity Resource Office
at Purdue University in Lafayette, Ind.
A most genial engaging instructor, she
shared with us her passion for the
marginalized of our world.
We learned that hospitality has al-
ways been a hallmark of our faith and
at the close of the week's study, we
were challenged to rethink the inten-
tionality of our decision making con-
cerning those we encounter along the
We agreed that our little acts of kind-
ness, in witness to our faith, could
make a difference in the life-changing
transition of those seeking U.S. citi-
zenship, by being welcoming, recog-
nizing them and listening to their

stories. It's all about inclusiveness, rec-
ognizing cultural differences and mak-
ing a connection by pulling together
We channeled our thoughts to think
of the goodness of others and the con-
tribution they are making, while learn-
ing that it's who we are more than what
we did in our transformation.
There were daily hands-on exer-
cises to enhance the study book, in-
cluding jotting down on a chart key
phrases that identified our concerns
for each other in the center of a circle.
In small-group setting, we explored
an action plan for radical inclusive
hospitality that we could implement
locally One day, we were
given a large grocery bag
and were told to write
down on it what we would
put in it if it was all that we
could take with us if we
were never to return to our
home again.
Dr Johnson (Carolyn)
^. and the class personalized
the definition of hospitality
Levins for me in the most trans-
ND THF forming way that I will
cherish always: "Hospital-
IUNITY ity means the creation of a
free space where the
stranger can enter and become a
friend instead of an enemy" It's not to
change people, but to offer them space
where change can take place, offering
freedom not disturbed by dividing
My class on poverty was taught by
the Rev Michelle Shrader, a native of
Tampa, who is the minister of Missions
at Myers Park United Methodist
Church in Charlotte, N.C. For five
years, she served as the conference co-
ordinator of the covenant with the
church in Zimbabwe.
We learned that effective ministry
with the poor requires our hearts and
hands and that we learn compassion
from the Scriptures. We learn to be
open to the needs of others as we are
engaged personally with the vulnera-
ble, embracing them as our brothers
and sisters, grasping the struggles they
face with compassion that evolves into
We learned that people in poverty
are often ashamed to ask for help, and

that we can be that doorway to the help
for them to enter
We were supplied with timely quotes
to inspire us to serve others in poverty
in our local community We were given
an "Oath for Compassionate Service"
with a telling line: "Never do for the
poor what they have the capacity to do
for themselves."
We received a checklist of 18 items
to check off by each one that we know
how to do, including, "I know how to
live without electricity and a phone."
We explored John Wesley's take on
poverty Wesley, the founder of
Methodism. His relationship to the
poor included personal friendship and
aid, the establishment of institutions
designed to address the needs, issues,
advocacy and stewardship develop-
We agreed that education is the so-
lution and that elements of sustain-
ability and empowerment are needed.
One quote on the wall of the class-
room lingers, "Relationships: Being
for, Being with, Working for, Working
with." A movie shown to us gave us the
startling fact that of the $350 billion
spent on Christmas gifts, only $10 bil-
lion is spent on clean water
Ideas to help included spending less
on Christmas gifts and giving more to
the impoverished, giving our time in-
stead of purchasing a gift and making
our gifts, donating to Heifer Interna-
tional, UMCOR, volunteering with
Habitat for Humanity
At the close of the class, we affirmed
that we need to shift from loving things
to loving people, from indulging and
enabling self to serving and empower-
ing others, and that the good life is the
invitation to share life's journey with
our Creator, one another and all of cre-
It was another great week with
United Methodist Women, sharing,
learning, being in community with the
overwhelming needs of others locally

Dear Annie: My 81-year-old
mother lives alone, drives
her own car and manages
her own finances. Be-
tween savings, retire-
ment income and
inheritance, she is
well fixed. What wor-
ries me is that Mom
has been enrolled in
ballroom dance les-
sons for several years.
These lessons are ex-
orbitantly expensive,
costing in the six fig-
ures annually There
are multiple lessons AN IN
each week, as well as MAIL
competition trips. The
instructors, managers
and owners of the club flatter
Mom and tell her what a wonder-
ful dancer she is. But, Annie, I've
seen her performances, and she
looks lost, doesn't remember the
steps and has no clue what to do
I believe this dance studio is
taking advantage of her. I spoke
to management, but they said it's
none of my business. Mom used
to be quite frugal, and I worry
that she no longer has the judg-
ment to manage her money Yet I
can't do anything about it other
than wring my hands. She won't
listen to a word I say
Mom never visits the grand-
children. She has no interest in
family activities and has aban-
doned the things she used to do
before she discovered dancing.
She had a small stroke two years
ago, and her doctor has made nu-
merous appointments with a
neurologist, but she always finds
a reason to cancel.
If Mom burns through her re-

sources, I will not have the means
to help when she can no longer
live independently I am hurt that
she lies to me when all
I want is to see that
she is provided for. -
Only Child in Music
Dear Music City:
We're glad Mom en-
joys her dance lessons,
and it's good exercise,
but it sounds as if this
dance studio may be
guilty of financial
abuse. Call the Better
IE'S Business Bureau in
BOX your city and find out
whether complaints
have been registered.
Also contact the National Center
on Elder Abuse (ncea.aoa.gov)
and the Eldercare Locator (800-
677-1116) and ask for assistance.
Then, when your mother has her
next doctor's appointment, ask if
you can go along. Alert the doc-
tor's office in advance, and re-
quest a more extensive exam.
Dear Annie: My father-in-law
loves going to yard sales and likes
to buy sale items for our home
and our four sons. The problem is
that we have limited space and
don't need all this junk. The toys
tend to have a missing part or be
partially broken, and the clothes
have stains or holes.
My husband wants to simply
accept the items because my fa-
ther-in-law would otherwise be
offended. But it upsets me that
they give us so many used items.
We just got back from a weeklong
visit and were barraged with bags
of these things. Tired of Used
Dear Tired: Even used junk is

a gift that requires a "thank you."
Please accept your father-in-
law's yard sale items with gra-
ciousness. He means well. Then
throw them away as soon as you
see a garbage can, give them to
charity, fuse them into a garden
sculpture or do whatever else
you wish with them.
DearAnnie: "Frustrated in the
Midwest," who doesn't want her
parents to attend her children's
school events, comes across as
very self-absorbed. I am 63 and
was reared in a generation where
we enjoyed our families. We in-
cluded our parents in our lives. I
cherish the memories of them
sharing our children's activities.
I have first-hand knowledge of
this "new generation" attitude.
My oldest son and daughter-in-
law have banned me from seeing
my grandchildren. My youngest
daughter-in-law is downright
rude to me.
"Family time" is a thing of the
past. If a Grandma wants to show
love and concern, she is med-
dling. Merely calling to see if
everyone is OK is intrusive. My
generation will be passing away
soon, and sadly, these kids will
wake up too late, if at all. One

Newspaper Enterprise Assn.

Emily Procter, who plays Calleigh Duquesne on
TV said, "One hundred and eighty episodes of
'CSI: Miami' and never the same lipstick twice."
One hundred and eighty bridge deals and never
the same hand twice. But often you will plan to bid
twice, and when you do, you should think of not
only the first round but also the second.
Look at the South hand in today's diagram. West
opens one diamond, North makes a takeout dou-
ble, and East raises to two diamonds. What should
South do?
Yes, East should have been more ambitious,
jumping to three diamonds, which would have
been pre-emptive. (As a sidelight for experienced
partnerships, there is a strong case for playing that
three of a minor over a takeout double is a limit
raise and a two-no-trump response is pre-emptive.
If the final contract is to be three no-trump, which
is possible when responder has game-invitational
values, it is probably better played by the opener.)
Is South going to make one bid now and pass
thereafter, or would he be willing to bid a second
time if West or East competes to three diamonds?
Here he should be happy to bid twice. So, to
make it easy to show both of his suits, South should
advance with two spades. Then, over three dia-
monds by an opponent, he can economically rebid
three hearts. (If South were weaker, he would have
bid two hearts at his first turn.)
The defenders can defeat three hearts if they
arrange for East to get a spade ruff. But they are
making three diamonds, so that would be no great
loss for North-South. And East-West might not find
the killing defense.

rates for non-black and black men.
This is a huge improvement, since
in the past we have seen benefits in
the Caucasian population but not in
the black population.
Now, thanks to the PSA, this dif-
ference is diminishing.
In the past 30 years, The South-
west Oncology Group has conducted
clinical trials evaluating patient
survival with early detection and
treatment for prostate cancer. Of the
three trials, two were conducted be-
fore the introduction of PSA screen-
ing. These three sequential trials
provide an opportunity for us to
look at the success of treatment be-
fore and after the introduction of
the PSA test as a screening tool and
as a test to follow patients after they
have been treated.
These trials dealt with many pa-
tients who already had metastatic
disease; cancer had already spread
to other parts of the body
Even in this group of patients, the
PSA dramatically helped with sur-

vival. The first trial enrolled pa-
tients from 1985 to 1986. In this trial,
median survival was 30 months. In
the second trial (1989-1994), median
survival was 33 months, and in the
third trial (1995-2009), median sur-
vival was 49 months.
Yes, the PSA increased the sur-
vival from 30 months to 49 months,
even in this set of patients with
stage IV disease.
In the trials, researchers also
looked at a lot of other risk factors,
including age, race, body mass
index, and extensive versus mini-
mal disease. In the first study, me-
dian survival for black men was 27
months, compared with 48 months
in the third trial. This is a huge im-
provement, and the PSA played a
very important role. According to
the researchers, black men had
poorer results in the earlier studies
even though they received treat-
ment in a carefully overseen clini-
cal trial.
Why have we seen this
The researchers believe this im-
provement is based on greater
awareness of prostate cancer risk in
blacks, the increased use of the PSA


for screening, and improved health-
seeking behavior in black men.
However, black men have a two- to
three-fold greater incidence of
newly diagnosed metastatic
prostate cancer compared to white
men, which contributes to a simi-
larly increased death rate.
A greater effort is needed to elim-
inate disparities in prostate cancer
survival, and we will continue to try
to educate all populations of the im-
portance of screening and the PSA.
Without a doubt, the PSA blood test
has played a role in extending many

data suggest that certain smok-
ers have switched from ciga-
rettes to other combustible
tobacco products, most no-
tably since a 2009 increase in
the federal tobacco excise tax
that created tax disparities be-
tween product types."
Cigar smokers often do not
inhale and so they think it is
safe to smoke cigars.
Nothing is further from the
Cigars contain nicotine and
other harmful chemicals that
you may absorb through in-
halation or by absorption from
the lining of the lips.
As per the NCI (National
Cancer Institute), cigar smok-
ing causes cancer of the oral
cavity, larynx, esophagus and
lung. It may also cause cancer
of the pancreas.
Moreover, daily cigar smok-
ers, particularly those who in-
hale, are at increased risk for


developing heart disease and
other types of lung disease.
Regular cigar smokers and
cigarette smokers have similar
levels of risk for oral cavity
and esophageal cancers. The
more you smoke, the greater
the risk of disease.
So this change in trend of to-
bacco use does not reduce
health problems. I suggest
when you quit smoking ciga-
rettes, please do not start
smoking cigars or chewing to-
bacco. One must stop all to-
bacco products.
I am not pro-tax, but I still
feel more tax on cigars and
other tobacco products may

Dr. Schekorra


Florida Sunshine!
That's why we live here, but are you concerned with the effects on your skin? Would
you like to reverse some of those signs of aging? The professional team at The
Dermatology Center in Inverness is there for you.
The staff of highly trained professionals is led by Dr. Charles Dewberry, D.O., with
over 10 years of dermatology experience. Perhaps you are concerned with a mole or
unusual spot on your skin. Have a rash that won't go away? Maybe you're curious about
the newest therapies in cosmetic procedures. It is no longer necessary to travel to Orlando
to get the finest dermatology care.
The Dermatology Center in Inverness should be your first stop if you suspect a skin
cancer; but, were you aware that they also treat all of the following:
* Acne and Complexion Problems
* Rosacea
* Moles, Cysts, Warts and Growths
* Skin Cancer and Melanoma
* Frozen Section Surgery
* Eczema and Atopic Dermatitis/Psoriasis
* Melasma
* Freckles, Age Spots and Brown Spots
* Botox for Excessive Sweating
* Scalp and Nail Problems
* Pediatric Skin Conditions
* Skin Rashes/Shingles
If you have been considering a cosmetic procedure, now is the perfect time to see the
newest advancements. Call today to speak with a Licensed Aesthetician. Here are some of
the therapies provided:
Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus is the smooth gel filler that the doctor uses to instantly
smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose with results that last up to a year.
Restylane These products can be used individually to add volume and fullness to the
skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your
nose to the corners of your mouth.
Sculptra is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps
to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds.
Radiesse immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of
aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product.
Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the
look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in people 18 to 65 years of
age for a short period of time.
Pelleve is a revolutionary non-surgical procedure to safely and effectively treat facial
wrinkles with virtually no pain and little downtime.
Hydrafacials is the newest advance in non-laser skin resurfacing, and is the only
hydradermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration
and antioxidant protection simultaneously, resulting in clearer, more beautiful skin with no
discomfort or downtime.
VI Chemical Peel will improve the tone, texture and clarity of your skin, reduce or
eliminate age spots, freckles, and hyper-pigmentation, including melasma, soften lines and
wrinkles, clear acne skin conditions, reduce or eliminate acne scars, stimulate the
production of collagen, for firmer, more youthful skin.
Alpha-Beta Hydroxy Treatment AHA glycolic acid, and BHA salicylic acid, are used
by physicians to induce light skin peels, which removes a very thin layer of skin, which in
turn promotes the growth of new, smoother skin and helps treat fine lines and wrinkles,
acne and uneven texture and coloration.
The Dermatology Center also offers a full line of products at their Online Skin Care
Store! Website: FloridaDermCenter.com. Browse through the store and shop with
confidence. Unlike other skin care websites, they have a Board Certified Dermatologist
and Licensed Aesthetician on staff to answer any questions you may have. They offer free
Priority Mail shipping with quick delivery.

Inverness, FL 34450. Ph: (352)637-1310 Fax: (352)637-0788

Free Alzheimer's Training

Now Available To Local

Family Caregivers

The local Home Instead Senior Care
office is offering a unique approach to help
Citrus County area families manage the
challenges of Alzheimer's and other
dementias, diseases that eventually rob
seniors of their memories and
independence. Free training for families
caring for these older adults is now
available through online e-learning
modules, available at
HelpForAlzheimersFamilies .com.

where 60 to 70
percent live, according to the Alzheimer's
"Until there is a cure, we offer an
interim solution," said Carolyn Quintanilla,
owner of the local Home Instead Senior
Care office. The foundation of the
Alzheimer's CARE Training Program is an
approach called "Capturing Life's
Journey" that involves gathering stories
and experiences about the senior to help
caregivers provide comfort while honoring
the individual's past. Because people with
Alzheimer's disease have difficulty with
short-term memory, the Capturing Life's
Journey approach taps into long-term
The Home Instead Senior Care
network assembled the top experts in
Alzheimer's disease to develop the CARE
approach. "The training we're offering to
families is the same kind of training our
professional CAREGiversSM receive,"
Quintanilla noted.
The program for family caregivers

consists of four classes: Alzheimer's
Disease or Other Dementias Overview;
Capturing Life's Journey; Techniques to
Manage Behaviors; and Activities to
Encourage Engagement. Also available is a
free guide for those who are caring for a
loved one with Alzheimer's disease or
other dementias. Called Helping Families
Cope, the guide includes advice to help
families keep their loved ones engaged and

manage behaviors.
"CARE is
approach that hel


a wonderful hands-on
ps caregivers deal with
the behavioral
changes that too
often accompany
these disorders -
* one of the biggest
stressors for
caregivers," said
Dr. Jane F. Potter,
chief of the

Division of Geriatrics and Gerontology at
the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
"Previously, there was not a good program
available using adult education techniques
to provide hands-on practice in learning
how best to help people who suffer from
dementia. This is huge," she added.
"The preferred environment for those
with dementia is generally at home," said
Potter, who served on the expert panel to
help develop content for the Alzheimer's
CARE Training Program. And yet, families
caring for seniors with Alzheimer's at
home are dealing with challenging
behaviors such as anger, aggression,
wandering and refusing to eat, according to
research conducted for the Home Instead
Senior Care network. "That makes the
Alzheimer's Disease or Other Dementias
CARE Training Program a solution for the
many families in our area who are being
impacted each day by devastating side
effects of this disease," Quintanilla said.

"Skin cancer, if caught early, has
better cosmetic results and a better
cure rate," she said. "And once you
have one area of skin cancer, you
have a greater risk of another."
MOHS surgery is an outpatient
procedure where the surgeon
removes the infected tissue, sends it
to the in-office pathologist where it
is immediately examined to deter-
mine if all of the infected tissue has
been removed. In the event there is
additional infected tissue, then that
tissue is removed.
"We try to conserve as much of

Changes in your vision can affect the

CATARACTS are a normal part of the
aging process, but can also be from an
injury or from long-term use of steroid
medications. Diabetes, smoking and
long-term exposure to sunlight can also
cause cataracts.
A cataract is when the natural lens of
the eye becomes cloudy, when things
begin to look yellowish or even foggy.

At the Suncoast Eye Center, cataracts
are treated with the most advanced sur-
gical procedure available: small inci-
sion, no-stitch surgery. Both Dr. Seigel
and Dr. Freedman remove the clouded

with an advanced, premium artificial
lens implant of your choice.

BLENDED VISION this will give you a greater
range of vision without the need for

your dominant eye is for distance and the
non-dominant eye is for near vision.
MULTIFOCAL LENSES this unique lens is
proven to provide excellent vision at
near, intermediate and far distances
without the use of glasses; under all
lighting conditions day or night.
The multifocal lens procedure is per-
formed worldwide and is recognized for
its safety and predictability. The beauty
of using this type of lens is that it relies
on the eyes working together, as they
are designed to do. By having both
eyes processing all visual information in

the same way, the multifocal lens gives
people natural vision at all distances,
much like they had in their youth.
Medicare and most insurance plans
pay for the standard cataract procedure,
but there is an out-of-pocket expense to
cover the cost of the premium lenses and

Hearing loss is the third most prevalent
chronic condition after arthritis and
hypertension among the more than 3.25
million Americans 50 years and older.
According to the National Institute on
Deafness and other Communication
Disorders, approximately 1 in 6 baby
boomers have a hearing loss. Over the age of
65, it goes up to 1 in 4, and doubles to 1 in 2
over the age of 75.
Most people lose their hearing gradually, so
symptoms are often hard to notice. People
close to you may point it out before you are
willing to admit your hearing loss. As
frustrating as your hearing loss is for you, it
is also difficult for those trying to
communicate with you.
Test Yourself:
* Do you ask people to repeat themselves?
* It is harder to hear in noisy situations, like
restaurants and malls?
* You can hear, but have trouble
understanding conversation when in a
group or crowd?
* People complain that you have the TV
turned up too loud?
* Do you answer or respond inappropriately
in conversations?
* Are telephone conversations becoming
increasingly difficult?
* You are accused of having
"selective hearing"?
* Do you have trouble hearing when your
back is turned to people?
* Have you been told that you speak
too loudly?
* Do some people sound like they mumble?
If you answered YES to two or more of
these questions, then you should be
TESTED by a professional.
Dr. Max Chartrand, professor of Behavioral
Medicine at Northcentral University in
Prescott Valley, Arizona states, 1- chronic
illnesses are as insidious and difficult to
detect yet striking in their effects on our
psychological and social well being as the
uncorrected loss of hearing."
A large percentage of people with hearing
loss wait many years before they seek
professional help. During this time, their
quality of life may have deteriorated
unnecessarily. Our ears function for us to
hear, but understanding happens in the brain.
Over time as they lose their hearing, their
brain slowly loses the ability to recognize
sounds and certain words. They can hear but
sometimes can't understand what they heard.

The National Council on the Aging (NCOA)
reported that hearing loss in older persons can
have a significant negative impact on quality
of life, leading to depression, anxiety, and
paranoia. Nine out of ten hearing aid users
report improvements in their quality of life.
Medical professionals recommend that
everyone has their hearing evaluated
annually. Beltone offers complementary
hearing evaluations to the community, which
includes a video ear scan, comprehensive
audiometric hearing test, and Personalized
Hearing Health Assessment. All of these
services, a $275 value, are offered at no cost
to the consumer.
Beltone Hearing Center is proud to offer in-
home, nursing home and assisted living
center testing and service. Their licensed and
experienced audiologists and dispensers use
the latest in digital and computer based
testing equipment, allowing them to conduct
quality testing in the convenience of your
own home. They also provide in-home
programming, servicing and repair of your
hearing aids. Beltone Hearing Centers are
committed to educating the public about
hearing loss, how to recognize it, how to test
for it, the effects it has socially and
emotionally, and the solutions available to
the problem. To that end, they have designed
a series of fun and informative seminars that
focus on these topics which they present at
senior organizations such as senior centers,
assisted living facilities, nursing homes,
adult day care centers, etc. These seminars
are free of charge to the community, and can
include complimentary video ear scans and
hearing screenings for all those that attend.

Citrus Diabetes Treatment Center

& Physicians Weight Loss

"Physician, Heal Thyself..." Luke 4:23

And so he did. Eihab H. Tawfik, MD, is a
board-certified internist and trained primary
care physician, qualified to treat all areas of
health as a family physician. Dr. Tawfik has
also become a weight loss expert. His decision
to name his offices the Citrus Diabetes
Treatment Center and the Citrus Physicians
Weight Loss is the result of his own health
challenges and victories. At the age of 12,
Eihab Tawfik contracted the mumps virus. As
a result, he developed Type 1 insulin-dependent
diabetes. He was told he needed five or six
insulin injections a day to control his blood
glucose levels. "There's no other way to treat
Type 1 diabetes except with insulin," Tawfik
explains. Type 1 diabetes is a condition where
the body's immune system destroys the

pancreatic cells that make insulin, the hormone
needed to regulate blood glucose. Today, Dr.
Tawfik wears an insulin pump, about the size
of a beeper, that holds three days' worth of
insulin and delivers it via a catheter placed
under the skin.
Dr. Tawfik's personal desire to find a way to
control his disease led him to studies on the
correlation between weight and insulin/blood
glucose. He was also well aware that insulin
causes weight gain, and struggled with his own
weight for most of his life. "During medical
school and my residency, it was very difficult
to lose weight," recalls Dr. Tawfik. "Once I
started practicing, I realized the importance of
controlling my weight. A patient should not
come to a weight loss center only to see a
doctor who is overweight himself."
Dr. Tawfik once weighed 220 pounds and is
now a healthy 160 pounds. He lost over 60
pounds in just the past three months following
his own protocol. As a direct result of this
weight loss, Dr. Tawfik has cut his insulin
requirements down to only one-third of what
he required previously. His work with weight
loss and diabetes has helped hundreds of
people reduce or get off their medications
completely. At least 50 percent of all clients
coming to the Center for weight loss are found
to be diabetic, and for many it was a surprise.
According to American Diabetic Association
findings, a 5-10% reduction in body weight
produced a 58% reduction in diabetes.
As a diabetic himself, Dr. Tawfik is aware
of the challenges involved with this disease and
that diabetes can affect your entire family.

Among U.S. L
residents ages 65
years and older, 10 9
million, or 26.9
percent, had diabetes Dr. Eihab
in 2010. About
215,000 people younger than 20 years had
diabetes-type 1 or type 2-in the United
States in 2010. About 1.9 million people ages
20 years or older were newly diagnosed with
diabetes in 2010 in this country alone.
"Weight loss for diabetic patients can make
all the difference," Dr. Tawfik says. "Many of
our patients can eventually be freed for life
from insulin injections or other diabetic
medications "Dr. Tawfik's research shows that
maintaining a healthy weight and making good
food choices can keep a Type 2 pre-diabetic
condition from escalating into the disease. The
numbers for pre-diabetes are staggering: 35
percent of U.S. adults ages 20 years or older,
and 50 percent of adults ages 65 years or older.
Dr. Tawfik educates his patients on the health
benefits of maintaining a healthy weight.
Excess weight increases your risk of heart
disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and
much more. At his clinic, patients receive a
proven combination of diet, exercise, and
medication. This plan works for men and
women of all ages. Their physician-directed

weight loss program. As Dr. Tawfik explains,
"When they come to the office for their diet
injection, we measure heart rate, blood
pressure, etc. If there is even a slight increase
in those areas compared to the last visit, a nurse
automatically puts the patient in an exam room
and it becomes a medical visit." Such
instances are rare, he stresses, but the ability to
respond to medical concerns immediately is an
important benefit of Citrus Diabetes Treatment
Center & Physicians Weight Loss.
Dr. Tawfik encourages patients to come in
for help with diabetes or weight loss, but
emphasizes that his staff is trained to provide a
full range of primary care services. The main
goal of his practice is to improve the patient's
quality of life, and to do so in a caring and
compassionate manner using the latest
advances in medical technology and
knowledge. As primary care physicians, Dr.

Ever notice your heart skip a beat? Maybe
you feel it race faster than normal or seem out
of rhythm? Should you be concerned? It's just
normal, isn't it? It's called Arrhythmia. Find out
what that means.
A cardiac arnli. Iiii.i. is an abnormality in
the heartbeat- whether the rhythm is too slow,
too fast, or irregular. In some cases, a cardiac
inl-i. ,ilii.i. could be nothing to worry about.
For other patients, an il'. I.iii.i. could turn life
threatening. Even a harmless irregularity in the
heartbeat should be carefully observed in case
the situation changes.
Arrhythmias can be caused by any change or
complication that forms in the electrical
pathway that runs from the upper chambers of
the heart to the lower chambers. Sometimes this
can result in a heart beating under 60 beats per
minute, or a heart that beats over 100 times in a
minute. Some irregular heartbeats will vary
chaotically between the two extremes without a
discernible pattern.
Arrhythmia patients will often notice a
racing heartbeat or a peculiar fluttering
sensation in their chest or neck. Other
symptoms of an ianl 1,11iii.i include:
Dizziness or fainting
Difficulty breathing
Chest pain
An III. .ilii.i. is when the heart's electrical
systems do not work properly. Each year, over
850,000 Americans are hospitalized for an
"Having a local full-service facility that's
focused solely on treating aiil. mni.ii,
means patients won't have to go out of the
area to receive specialized care," said Julie
Lallanilla, Director of Electrophysiology at
RMC Bayonet Point.
The Arrhythmia Center of Florida (ACOF) is
open to diagnose and treat patients who suffer
from cardiac arrhythmias. The ACOF is part of
the nationally recognized Heart Institute at
Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point. With a
state-of-the-art electrophysiology lab and full-
service facility, the ACOF is able to diagnose
and treat all types of arrhythmias.
Arrhythmia Center of Florida is dedicated to
providing quality and timely care. They are
fully staffed with expert physicians and
healthcare professionals who are committed to
giving their patients the care they need while
experiencing a cardiac ilih. ilhini.i They possess
a state-of-the-art lab that is fully equipped with
the latest technology used to diagnose and
effectively treat cardiac patients. Along with
making high-quality cardiac care available to
the community, this center works toward
promoting awareness and education about

The ACOF's physicians and healthcare
professionals have served patients in West
Central Florida since 1995 and perform over
1,000 electrophysiology procedures annually.
Medical Director Luis R. Annoni, MD leads the
ACOF's team of six electrophysiologists
(cardiologists who specialize in arrhythmias).
Along with Dr. Annoni, ACOF
electrophysiologists include: Rajiva Goyal,
MD; Raul Jimenez, MD; Huang-Ta Lin, MD;
Darshan V. Patel, MD; and Kenneth H.
Yamamura, MD.
"For some patients, an a.nli. dhili..i may be
nothing to worry about. For others, it may be a
life threatening medical condition," said Dr.
Annoni. "Anyone experiencing an a.Ii. li.ilii.i
should see a physician right away."

On June 14, 2012, The Leapfrog Group

recently made public its Safe Hospital Scores.
The scores are derived from Leapfrog's key
questions and publicly reported data. Regional
Medical Center Bayonet Point received an A
rating for safety.
"This recognition has very special meaning
for us," said Shayne George, CEO of Regional
Medical Center Bayonet Point. "It is a
recognition of our entire staff's effort to ensure
our service area of the safest hospital
experience possible". "What is most important
is that this is another objective recognition of
the quality of care provided here at RMCBP,"
he added.
According to the Leapfrog Group
approximately 400 people daily die because of
hospital errors the equivalent of a jet crashing
every day and killing all aboard. In response to
this silent epidemic, over 2,600 US hospitals
now receive an A, B, C, D or F score based on
patient safety. A panel of the nation's top
patient safety experts provides guidance to The
Leapfrog Group, an independent national
nonprofit run by employers and other large
purchasers of health benefits, to develop the
Hospital Safety Score. The Hospital Safety
Score is calculated using publicly available data
on patient injuries, medical and medication
errors, and infections.
"The Leapfrog Group's goal is to give
patients the vital information they need and
deserve before even entering a hospital," said
Leah Binder, president and CEO, The Leapfrog
Group. "We hope people will use this score to
talk with their doctor, make informed decisions
about where to seek care, and take the right
precautions during a hospital stay." For the first
time the Hospital Safety Score highlights the
country's best hospitals and warns against the
worst to save lives and bring attention to the
nation's silent safety epidemic. The Hospital
Safety Score website
www.HospitalSafetyScore.org allows visitors
to search hospital scores for free and provides
information for the public to protect themselves
and loved ones during a hospital stay.
The Hospital Safety Score exclusively
measures safety meaning errors, accidents,
and infections. Regional Medical Center
Bayonet Point received a near perfect score in
all of the areas of "safe practice measures."

HPH Hospice Can Help

HPH Hospice (HPH) isn't a place, it's a
philosophy of service based on providing the
highest quality of care to individuals and
families affected by a life-limiting illness.
As a not-for-profit organization that's served
Citrus County residents since 2005, HPH's
team of professional staff and extraordinary
volunteers consider it a privilege and honor
to be here for you and your loved ones at a
time when you need it most.
To be eligible for hospice, one must have
a life-limiting illness with a prognosis of six
months or less to live if the disease takes its
normal course. Some individuals live longer
than six months and HPH continues to care
for them if they meet the hospice criteria.
Typically, one's physician writes an order
for a HPH Hospice consultation after a
discussion takes place between the two of
you about choices and prognosis. However,
any prospective hospice patient or family
member can call HPH to discuss services
and learn more about our agency. Peace of
mind is of the greatest importance and you'll
find it by calling our local office at 527-

Choosing HPH Hospice Means...
* Dignity and compassion for patients and
their loved ones.
* A care plan customized to meet the
unique physical and emotional needs of
each patient.
* Management of symptoms for patients
with any terminal disease including
chronic heart, lung or kidney disease,
Alzheimer's, cancer, debility and other
* Continuous and uncompromising focus
on comfort and pain management.
* Regularly scheduled visits from HPH
nurses who specialize in recognizing and
treating end-of-life symptoms.
* Personal care by hospice aides.
* Physicians and nurses on call 24-hours a
day, seven days a week, to offer care and
education as symptoms progress.
* Crisis care for patients who are
experiencing a significant medical crisis.
* Equipment and medication related to the
life-limiting illness and delivered right to
your door.
* Companionship and caregiver respite by
trained, understanding HPH volunteers.
* Social workers who help the patient and

family better cope and connect with
agency and community resources.
Spiritual care offered by HPH chaplains
who respect your beliefs.
Bereavement support groups at no
charge for adults, teens and children.
Care in the Comfort of Home Most
HPH patients are cared for in the familiarity
of their own home around the people,
friends, pets, and surroundings they love.
Studies show that the earlier one receives
hospice care, the longer the life span.
Hospice is not the end it's the beginning of
a new journey and HPH is with you every
step of the way.
Assisted Living Facilities and Nursing
Homes HPH understands that this is the
resident's home, and we endeavor to ensure
that individuals age in place where they're
accustomed to living. We also work in
partnership with the facility.
HPH Hospice Care Center and
Hospice House The HPH Hospice Care
Center in Inverness provides short-term care
when symptoms or pain require round-the-
clock medical attention. A patient may be
discharged from the hospital to the HPH

Hospice Care Center or transferred from
home until symptoms are stabilized. Our
HPH Hospice House in Lecanto is for
patients who may not have a caregiver. HPH
nurses are at both facilities round-the clock
and physicians and our other team members
are there, too. Family and friends are
welcome to stay with their loved one at
either place and can come and go as they
How Can I Afford Hospice?
HPH provides care to anyone who
qualifies for hospice services regardless of
their ability to pay. The agency accepts
Hospice Medicare, Medicaid and private
insurance and receives reimbursement from
these sources. HPH is grateful to the
generosity of its many donors whose
financial gifts support our patient care and
support programs.
Please visit www.HPH-Hospice.org or
call our Citrus office for valuable
information about HPH and its upcoming
seminars, workshops and resources. We're
always here for you.

Pediatric Eye Care
It takes an expert to detect vision problems in babies

which will dramatically affect your child in later
years. Dr. Claudia L. Chavez, OD has many years of
experience in pediatric eye care, and has successfully
been able to detect vision problems in hundreds of
children. With an effective early treatment your child

has better chances to significantly recover or
completely regain visual health. Dr. Chavez
recommends bringing your baby early and then at
least once a year for a visual evaluation. Make an
appointment for your child today.
Adult Eye Care
Vision problems are not necessarily signs of aging.
Many different factors affect our vision such as
excessive computer usage, UV Rays, hereditary
W" problems, accidents, bad
visual habits and many
,- others. Receiving a periodic
f --t visual exam may help to

need glasses or not, you will be relieved to know
exactly what is affecting your vision. Give Dr.
Chavez a call she is there to help.
Concerned with Glaucoma or the effects of
Diabetes on your vision?
Glaucoma is not just one eye disease, but a group of
eye conditions resulting in optic nerve damage,
which causes loss of vision. Abnormally high
pressure inside your eye (intraocular pressure)
usually, but not always, causes this damage.
Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness.
Sometimes called the silent thief of sight, glaucoma
can damage your vision so gradually you may not
notice any loss of vision until the disease is at an
advanced stage. The most common type of glaucoma,
primary open-angle glaucoma, has no noticeable
signs or symptoms except gradual vision loss. Early
diagnosis and treatment can minimize or prevent
optic nerve damage and limit glaucoma-related vision
loss. It's important to get your eyes examined
regularly, and make sure your eye doctor measures
your intraocular pressure.
Diabetes is the leading cause of new blindness for
American adults between the ages of 20 and 74. The
American Diabetes Association (ADA) estimates that
12,000 to 24,000 people in the United States lose their
vision to diabetic retinopathy each year. But retinopathy
is not the only eye disease associated with diabetes.
Having diabetes also raises the risk of developing
cataracts, glaucoma, and several other eye conditions
that can cause severe visual impairment. While in many
cases severe vision loss can be prevented through
attention to blood glucose and blood pressure control,
the sad reality is that many people with diabetes are
living with significant visual impairment. However, life
doesn't stop because of vision loss, and the good news
is that there are many resources and tools to help people
with visual impairment manage their diabetes and get
on with their lives.
