her beloved Homosassa River of marine

and the Chassahowitzka River are about to

Karen Pinkston leaned
over the cracked slab while
brushing away the dirt and
grime of a century's worth
of neglect The name of a
young girl cut into the
homemade stone, Missouri,
was barely visible.
"That's what's sad,"
Pinkston said, standing to
wipe the sweat from her
brow and the dirt from her
hands, "someone put a lot of
effort into this, and now
she's forgotten."
Pinkston, along with her

brush that had sprung up
with recent rains.
The Pinkstons, owners of
North Florida Monument
Company in Williston, were
there to evaluate some of
the headstones that have
crumbled from age,
weather and vandals.
"It looks rustic," Pinkston
said of the collection of
about 40 grave markers and
monuments, "but I'd rather
see people be able to come
out here and read them. I
think that's why, initially,
they were put out here."

Associated Press
NEW YORK Few mo-
ments in American journal-
ism loom larger than the
one that came in 1971, when
New York Times publisher
Arthur Ochs Sulzberger had
to decide
whether to
defy a pres-
ident, and
risk a po-
charge, by
a classified Arthur
Defense Sulzberger
D e p a r t former New
ment his- York Times

involve- Saturday.
ment in Vietnam.
His choice, to publish the
Pentagon Papers and then
fight the Nixon administra-
tion's subsequent attempt to
muzzle the story, cemented
Sulzberger's place as a First
Amendment giant a role
being celebrated after he
died Saturday at age 86.
The former publisher,
who led the Times to new
levels of influence and
profit while standing up for
press freedom, died at his
home in Southampton, N.Y,
after a long illness, his fam-
ily announced.
During his three-decade
tenure, Sulzberger's news-
paper won 31 Pulitzer
prizes while he went about
transforming the family
business from perpetually
shaky to the muscular
media behemoth it was
when he retired.
Weekday circulation
climbed from 714,000 when
Sulzberger became pub-
lisher in 1963 to 1.1 million
when he stepped down as
publisher in 1992. Over the
same period, the annual
revenues of the Times'cor-
porate parent rose from
$100 million to $1.7 billion.
Yet it was Sulzberger's
positions on editorial inde-
pendence that made him a
hero of the profession, like
when he rejected his own
lawyers' warnings that even
reading the Pentagon Pa-
pers, let alone publishing
them, constituted a crime.
Sulzberger, who went by
the nickname "Punch" and
served with the Marine
Corps, privately worried
that he had doomed the
newspaper but gave inter-
views saying the Times
wouldn't allow the U.S. gov-
ernment to cover up its mis-
takes under the guise of
national security
"That is a wonderful way,
if you've got egg on your
face, to prevent anybody
from knowing it: Stamp it
SECRET and put it away,"
he said.
"Punch, the old Marine
captain who never backed
down from a fight, was an
absolutely fierce defender

Does saying 'no

make us bad


( "r feel exhausted,"
SMarie said as she
pounded the "For
Sale" sign into the ground in
front of her house.
That Marie and Chuck
were moving took me totally
by surprise. They
love it here.
"Where are you
going?" I asked.
"We don't care,"
she said. "As long
as it's far enough
away that our
kids won't be
tempted to bring
our grandchil- iA
dren to our house
each weekend. MUL
We're thinking
800 miles ought to do it"
"But you love little
Chardonnay and her
brother, Pinot!"
"Deeply, madly, we love
them. For a couple of hours.
After that, I'm spent. Satur-
day, I spent four hours mak-
ing sure they didn't spill
things on the furniture or
trip and hurt themselves.
They have so much more
energy than we have."
"So? Hand them back to
the parents when you've
had enough," I suggested.
"That's the thing," Marie
said. "Joey and Shauna
show up for the weekend,
and all of a sudden it's my
job to cook breakfast, lunch
and dinner; clean up after
them; and make sure the
kids don't poke out an eye
while they run around the
house at a hundred miles an
hour like their hair's on fire.
"For Joey and Shauna, it's
a vacation. For me, it's like
having a second job a
much lower-paying job that
I don't like very much. And I
sure don't like my new
bosses, Chardonnay and
Pinot. I finally realized
there's a reason older
women don't have babies -
because we can't keep up
with them. When I read
about that 60-year-old
woman in Italy who was
having an in vitro baby, I
wondered who was going to
take care of it for her. Then
it hit me: She expects to
pawn the little darling off on
her grandmother.
"So I get to take care of
the kids, feed the kids and
change the kids, but I'm not
allowed to say 'no' to the
kids, or 'Stop that!' When I
yelled at Pinot to stop yank-
ing Fluffy's tail, Shauna
acted like I'd slapped him. It
wasn't the child who was
complaining; it was the
mother. Then, very slowly,
as if I were an au pair who
didn't know our customs
and didn't speak English
very well, Shauna ex-
plained to me how to raise
children. I was supposed to


say: 'Pinot, the cat's not a
toy Would you like to play
with a toy?'
"Guess what? I really
don't need Shauna's advice
on how to raise children. I
raised four of them."
"So talk to Joey
about it," I said.
"Get him to tell
Shauna to back
"Joey just
throws up his
hands like he has
nothing to do
with it," Marie
-M said. "Like he
M doesn't know
.LEN where babies
come from, like
they just showed up one day
in his house.
'"So here's the deal,' I told
Shauna. 'If you don't care
what your kids do in your
house, that's your business.
When you bring them here,
we have rules.' Shauna got
all huffy with me, but really,
you wouldn't think of bring-
ing an untrained puppy to
someone's house and then
act all put out when hosts
won't let it do its business on
the living room carpet. Don't
bring an untrained child to
my house. It's rude.
"Yes, I could have said,
'That's not the way to play
with the cat,' but guess
what? It's my cat, not hers,"
Marie said.
"Let me ask you, do you
have any lasting memories
of someone saying 'no' to
you when you were 2 1/2? I
didn't think so. What do you
think Pinot's little friends
say to him when he pulls
that kind of stunt? 'Pinot,
the cat is not a toy. Would
you like me to get you a toy?'
No, they would just yell at
him to stop it."
"So you're really mov-
ing?" I asked.
"Oh, we'd been thinking
of moving for a while. Mak-
ing Joey and Shauna feel
bad that's just a bonus."

In fact, in 1852, the island
was renamed Cedar Key
Steele ran the homesteaders
off, she said, "And he bought
it all for $227."
Throughout the rest of
that century, trade and in-

about 50 households lived
on the island until 1896,
when a hurricane spawned
a 10-foot wall of water that
crushed all but a few houses
on the island.

What started out three years
ago as an idea and prayer has
grown well beyond what Scott
and Sarah Jo Thomas and Steve
and Andrea Dixon could have
ever envisioned.
In 2010, the couples planted
what seemed a meager 6 acres of
pumpkins. The response was
so overwhelming they added
three additional acres a year ago
as more than "an estimated"
8,000 people converged on the
"Obviously, when we started, it
was next to unheard of to grow
pumpkins here because of vio-
lent swings in weather, the hu-

insects," Thomas said of the start
three years ago. "We were even
discouraged by some to not even
try Both the Dixons and us felt
very compelled that this was a
direction God was leading us."
"We've been surprised in
every facet of our business, not
by just people, just the com-

'We've made this part of our tra-

More than anything, what cheers
Thomas are the positive responses
about offering an experience the
whole family can enjoy
"That's what we want more than
anything," he explained. "What
we've turned into, what we've
morphed into, is people can ac-
tually ring in fall. They can help
ring in the fall. The hayrides, the
corn, the pumpkins, it's a fall ex-

it. If it wasn't something they
wanted or desired, they wouldn't
be coming out. The people have
been very supportive."

This year, the size of the
"patch" has grown to a whopping
13 1/2 acres of picturesque
scenes for families to snap a
plethora of pictures.
Because of their faith and to
praise God for the successes of
the Pickin' Patch, the Thomas
and the Dixons select a Bible
verse each fall and make a
sticker to attach to each pump-
kin they sell. This year's verse is
2 Corinthians 5:7 "For we

Man charged in
student's disappearance
Bravo has been formally
charged with first-degree mur-
der in the case of a missing Uni-
versity of Florida student during
his first court appearance.
The state argued Saturday that
Bravo should be charged with
murder because he previously
said he beat 18-year-old Chris-
tian Aguilar until he was bloody,
swollen and barely breathing.
Gainesville Police said they
discovered Aguilar's backpack
hidden in a suitcase in Bravo's
closet and blood stains through-
out Bravo's car.
Bravo was denied bond.
Police say Aguilar was last
seen Sept. 20 at a Best Buy
store with Bravo. A massive
search for Aguilar continues.

Auner, with the Homosassa
River Alliance, now looks at
a final workshop about the
Minimum Flows and Levels
(MFLs) proposals slated
for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the
Lecanto Government Center
- as the last chance for those
who care about the water-
ways to have their voices
"We don't want them to
take out more water," Auner
said. "If anything, they should
be adding water The Ho-
mosassa River is dead. The
plant life is gone and you
hardly find any fish in there.
"We want people to show
up to this meeting and (have)
them know (how) we feel
about our river"
The water district is pro-
posing the following changes
to the flow of the Chassahow-
itzka and Homosassa rivers.
It was recently revised after
the initial proposal process
began in 2010:
U Chassahowitzka River
System, up to a 9 percent re-
duction in flows. According to

We have looked at the plant life

in the Homosassa River and it is

correct that they are dying, but we

don't know why.

Robyn Felix
spokeswomen for Southwest Florida Water Management District.

SWFWMD, existing with-
drawals have reduced flows
by 1 percent, meaning this
new minimum flow would
allow an additional 8 percent
reduction. The previous pro-
posal of sought an 11 percent
reduction in flows.
U Homosassa River Sys-
tem, up to 3 percent reduc-
tion in flows. Again, because
existing withdrawals have re-
duced flows by 1 percent, ac-
cording to SWFWMD, this
new minimum flow would
allow an additional 2 percent
reduction. The previous pro-
posal was for a 5 percent re-
duction in flows.
Furthermore, said Robyn
Felix, SWFWMD spokes-
woman, the water district
also delayed establishing the
proposed minimum flows to
gather more public comment

"We held or attended
nearly 30 public meetings to
discuss the proposed MFLs
and gather additional input,"
Felix said.
She said SWFWMD estab-
lished a webpage at Water
MFL to keep the public in-
formed and to obtain
Felix said the MFL pro-
posal was submitted to inde-
pendent scientific experts for
peer review.
She said the workshop
Tuesday was added for more
public input and the date of
the final vote by the district's
board was pushed back to
late October
Felix said her agency is
charged with dealing with
water quantity issues, and not
water quality


"We have looked at the
plant life in the Homosassa
River and it is correct that
they are dying, but we don't
know why However, as the
fish go, we have not found
anything to indicate the fish
numbers are inadequate,"
she said.
The SWFWMD vote on the
MFLs will be done in the dis-
trict's Brooksville office, so
Citrus County residents
wouldn't have to travel to
Tampa, officials said.

more scientific and engi-
neering staff this year to
support the district's
groundwater and surface
water modeling work, as
well as its springs and
water quality initiatives,
according to Robyn Felix,
SWFWMD spokeswoman.
"We have a lot of people
with expertise in these
areas, and many are get-
ting ready to retire. So we
are looking to replace
those people who would
get a chance to train with

these experts before they
retire," Felix said.
The district has 617 full-
time employees.
The organizational
changes include creating a
Project Management Office
to improve the efficiency
and effectiveness of how
the agency's more than 400
projects are managed.
"We are committed to pro-
viding the greatest value to
the taxpayer," Guillory said
in a news release last week.
"By implementing new
business processes we
have found opportunities
to improve our efficiency
and further reduce our op-
erational costs."

Three justices and a house race game change

The News Service of

of Florida Supreme Court
justices girded for battle
this week following last
week's announcement by
state Republicans that they
will try to take the "activist"
justices down.
The fight over efforts to
remove justices R. Fred
Lewis, Barbara Pariente
and Peggy Quince went
from backwater to front
burner this week with attor-
ney's groups and former col-
leagues jumping to the
jurists' defense in the face
of a recall campaign now of-
ficially blessed by the Re-
publican Party of Florida.
The ramping up of forces
in a judicial retention elec-
tion normally an obscure
ballot item highlighted an
election-dominated week.
Also this week, state elec-
tion officials settled with the
federal government over
early voting procedures
while continuing the effort
to keep ineligible voters
from the polls, and a sitting
state lawmaker announced
he wouldn't seek re-election
after his name came up
during a prostitution
And what would a Florida
campaign be without some
voter fraud? This week, the
RPOF severed ties with a
voter registration company
after paying it $1.3 million to
gather signatures, some of
which may have been faked.
Meanwhile, Gov. Rick Scott's
elections agency continued
its pursuit of illegal voters,
sending a new list of possible
aliens to local elections offi-
cials for them to make sure
those listed are not voters.
Scott this week continued
to sing the economy's
praises, touting job growth
and other encouraging signs
that Florida's economy is
coming back. The message
continues despite less-
optimistic assessments that
have surfaced indicating
some potholes remain on
the road to recovery
The governor's weekly
radio address boasts the ad-
dition of 28,000 new jobs.
Three Florida Supreme
Court judges who have re-
jected Republican-backed
efforts on a couple of issues
found themselves in the
crosshairs in the normally
afterthought merit-reten-
tion elections.

With some studies show-
ing nine out of 10 Florida
voters have no idea what
merit retention even means,
Lewis, Pariente and Quince
are being targeted by con-
servatives and now the state
Republican executive com-
mittee, which described the
trio as liberals who had
been involved in extensive
"judicial activism."
Since the 1970s, Supreme
Court justices have had
their names on the ballot
every six years for voters to
say whether they should
stay on the court. If the jus-
tices are not retained, Scott
will have the opportunity to
appoint three new ones.
The justices have collec-
tively raised more than $1
million to fight back, though
judicial canons limit what
they can say in their own
Florida's battle with fed-
eral officials over the state's
revised early voting scheme
seems to have come to an
end after a federal judge in
Jacksonville this week de-
nied a request by Demo-
cratic Congresswoman
Corrine Brown and other
black voters to stop the state
from reducing the number
of early-voting days ahead of
the Nov 6 elections.
The voters had argued
that reducing the number of
early-voting days from at
least 12 to no more than
eight,would disproportion-
ately affect minority voters,
who have been more likely
to take advantage of early
voting than white voters.
The state had countered
that elections officials were
allowed to offer more hours
on each of those days, and
that the changes applied
equally to all voters.
In his decision, District
Court Judge Timothy Corri-
gan of Jacksonville relied
heavily on evidence that
many counties would offer
as many as 12 hours a day in
early voting and would re-
quire some Sunday voting, a
potential opening for the
"souls to the polls" get-out-
the-vote efforts of some
black churches.
And local elections super-
visors this week again began
checking names of some reg-
istered voters to see if they're
eligible to cast ballots, using
a list of 198 names from the
state aimed at culling non-
citizens from the rolls.

this week sent the names to
the supervisors in the coun-
ties where those voters live,
after using a federal Home-
land Security database to
pinpoint those who might
not be citizens.
Local elections supervi-
sors contacted late this
week said they are still wait-
ing for more documentation
before notifying potentially
ineligible voters.
The latest Quinnipiac
University poll released this
week shows President
Barack Obama opening up a
wider lead over Republican
challenger Mitt Romney, but
skeptics found the 53 per-
cent-44 percent Obama ad-
vantage a little hard to
The nine-point spread
may be a little optimistic,
say other pollsters who have
been tracking the race since
it began.
Still, the poll was taken
days after the release of
Romney's "47 percent"
speech in which Romney,
speaking to contributors,
contended that nearly half
of the U.S. population views
the federal government as
an entitlement teat.
In perhaps the biggest
surprise of the week, one
state House race changed
Rep. Mike Horner, R-
Kissimmee, dropped his bid
for re-election after his
name was connected to a
prostitution operation in
Orange County
Horner, a two-term law-
maker who chairs the
House's transportation and
economic development
budget committee, stepped
down following reports link-
ing him to Mark David Ris-
ner, 54, who was arrested
Aug. 16 for racketeering and
five prostitution-related

charged with any crime.
"I've had no greater honor

Local Republicans will be
able to choose a new candi-
date to replace Homer,
though his name will re-
main on the ballot, which
can prove confusing. A vote
for Homer will actually be a
vote for the replacement.
But with the change, De-
mocrat Eileen Game sud-
denly became, well, part of
the game. Game, of Frost-
proof, had been thought a
longshot, but with no incum-
bent and a close party
breakdown in the new
House District 42 in Osceola
and Polk counties, Game
looked this week to have a
real shot
Politics didn't hold com-
plete sway this week.
Florida Power & Light came
to Tallahassee in an unsuc-
cessful effort to gain ap-
proval for an agreement
that would end a six month
rate hearing process. The
Public Service Commission
deferred action on a pro-
posed settlement, which
was opposed by the Office of
Public Counsel.
The Public Counsel's
Charles Rehwinkel blasted
the FPL proposal, which
had the blessing of some the
utility's biggest commercial
and industrial clients.
"This proposal is not
agreed to by the legal repre-
sentative of 99.9 percent
FPEs customers, which ren-
ders it, effectively, just a
proposal that FPL negoti-
ated with itself with some
specific rate increase offset
to the signators," Rehwinkel

R-Kissimmee, steps out of
his re-election bid after

mobile insurers have until
Monday to show Florida
regulators how much, if at
all, they plan on reducing
rates on the personal injury
protection, or no-fault, por-
tion of drivers' policies. This
could mean that Florida's
drivers will save money on
their insurance bills.
A new PIP law still re-
quires all Florida drivers to
carry $10,000 in coverage for
accident injuries, but cre-
ated a lower ceiling of $2,500
in coverage for non-emer-
gency treatment to cut down
on abuses.
Jack McDermott, the com-
munications director for the
Office of Insurance Regula-
tion, said it's too early for
state officials to really know
how the changes in the law
will actually affect mo-
torists' bills.
"It appears the effect of
the law for most companies
may be to reduce the
amount of rate requests,
which is a positive develop-
ment, but not lead to actual
PIP rate reductions," said
He emphasized that regu-
lators still have 60 days to
review the rate requests be-
fore a final decision is

"I fully expect significant
premium savings and for
those savings to be passed
along from insurance com-
panies to Florida drivers,"
Florida Consumer Insur-
ance Advocate Robin West-
cott said. "By stemming
abuses and controlling the
skyrocketing costs that come
with them, Floridians will
see lower PIP premiums."
Stemming the abuses,
however, remains a huge
challenge despite recent
changes in the law aimed at
doing just that, not to men-
tion legal challenges that
are likely to be filed after
the new rates start taking ef-
fect after Jan. 1.
The thrust of Florida's re-
vamped PIP law was aimed
at cracking down on the
runaway fraud resulting
from bogus pain clinics and
staged auto accidents that
was increasing the cost of
coverage for drivers.
The new law puts a 14-day
limit on seeking treatment
following a crash. Benefits
also will be capped at $2,500
unless a medical doctor, os-
teopathic physician, dentist,
supervised physician's as-
sistant or advanced regis-
tered nurse practitioner
determines the injured per-
son has an "emergency
medical condition." Chiro-
practors cannot make that

Arthur Ochs Sulzberger
Jr, said in a statement.
Sulzberger was the only
grandson of Adolph S.
Ochs (pronounced ox), the
son of Bavarian immi-
grants who took over the
Times in 1896 and built it
into the nation's most in-
fluential newspaper.
The family retains con-
trol to this day, holding a
special class of shares
that give them more pow-
erful voting rights than
other stockholders.
Power was thrust on
Sulzberger at the age of 37
after the sudden death of
his brother-in-law in 1963.
He had been in the Times
executive suite for eight
years in a role he later de-
scribed as "vice president
in charge of nothing."
But Sulzberger directed
the Times'evolution from
an encyclopedic paper of
record to a more reader-

Letters to the EDITOR

I am writing this letter as
a businesswoman and a
grandmother of four beau-
tiful children. I have been
listening to all the spin sur-
rounding our upcoming
presidential election and
wondering if the voters are
hearing the words the
politicians are using.
When Obama was cam-
paigning, one of his
phrases was he wanted to
fundamentally change
America. I don't know
about you, but that isn't
working out so well for me.
The minute Obamacare
was sure to pass, my insur-
ance rates went from $437
per month to $797 per
month and I am healthy I
can't begin to think about
businesses that will be re-
quired to provide health-
care for employees.
Additionally, the govern-
ment took over the car
manufacturers and closed
many dealerships. Why was
this accepted by the Obama
administration and con-
demned by the same ad-
ministration when Mitt
Romney restructured busi-
nesses for Bain Capital?
My challenge to everyone
is to think about the words
used by the Democrats
Paul Ryan's budget will
change Medicare as we
know it. Well, isn't that OK?
Medicare as we know it
will be broke in just a few
years, and something has to
be done! Please realize
changing something could
be for the better, and sen-
iors, it will not affect yours.
It only changes for people
younger than 55.
Our country is very ill
and I would much prefer a
doctor with the knowledge
to treat me effectively than
one with just a good bed-
side manner We may not
totally like the medicine,
but we need to take it for
our country Our children
and grandchildren deserve
to grow up in a country
with the same greatness as
we had.

Civil or honest?
I had planned to write in
response to Joe Spoto's at-
tack on the voting rights of
the poor. Of course, his con-
tention that we (or at least
the undeserving poor) have
no right to vote was refuted
by a brief note from an-
other reader citing the
Constitution on that right.
But today (Sept. 11) John
McFadden has moved to
the forefront, citing a num-
ber of my statements and
asking the Chronicle to
censor my comments be-
cause he finds them offen-
sive. He says my statements
have no basis in fact, which
I find offensive.
Did our governor run a
continuing criminal enter-
prise? Rick Scott was CEO
of HCA for a period in
which HCA was found to
have engaged in $600 mil-
lion or more of Medicare
fraud. It was fined more
than $1.3 billion, but typi-
cally no one was found to
be responsible.
I asserted in the post-
globalization era most of
the wealth has been fun-
neled into the hands of the
rich. Unfortunately that is
absolutely true. Someone
recently charged (Presi-
dent Clinton) with betray-
ing us to Communist China,

bates of the 1992 campaign.

ity, been steady since 1970.
I questioned whether
"the original letter-writer
knew how long 150 years
might be." He asserted
"feel-good liberals" had de-
stroyed the nation in that
time. I found it strange any-
one who passed 11th-grade
U.S. History would believe
either that we had been
governed by "feel-good lib-
erals" all that time, or that
the country has been

Consultant query
Please let me understand
this correctly Our Citrus
County commissioners
want to hire consultants to
tell them how to raise rev-
enues, while at the same
time supporting Amend-
ment 4, which if passed will
result in revenue cuts while
incurring more growth and
thus more demand for serv-
ice, which we definitely
won't be able to pay for be-
cause of the revenue cuts.
My head is spinning.
Two issues come to mind:
1) What if the consultant
comes back (along with a
bill for thousands of dol-
lars) and reports that to in-
crease revenues, taxes
and/or fees should be
raised. Then what? How
else does the government
raise money to fund ongo-
ing service?
2) Hiring consultants to
decide how to raise rev-
enues is outsourcing the
job that commissioners are
elected (hired) to do by the
people. Part of that job is
making policies through
the budget, making deci-
sions on how to spend as
well as how to generate
revenues to pay for those
expenditures. What does it
say about leadership when
all difficult decisions are
absolved through the hiring
of consultants?

If anybody believes for
one second the violence we
are seeing all over the
world is about some film on
the prophet Mohammad
(Oops! Better say praise be
his name!), I have some
swampland to sell them.
For the sake of argument,
let's accept that premise
and move on. In most mod-
ern countries, we have the
right of free speech (an
enumerated right) and
must therefore grit our
teeth even when we read or
see horrible things.
Now we have Muslim
countries in most cases
under Sharia law. While
they have governments,
they are greatly influenced
by their clerics. So we are
at a deadlock. These coun-
tries want death to
whomever chooses to exer-
cise free speech.
There you have it, folks.
The Obama administration
has asked the filmmaker to
pull the film, which to me
is contrary to our basic
principles and a capitula-
tion to Muslim extremism.
Disregard the fact that
this film has been on
YouTube for a while, yet
the demonstrations began
on Sept 11. Hello? Forget
they are chanting "remem-
ber bin Ladin." As Rodney
King said, "Can't we all get
along?" The answer is be-
coming only too apparent.
Giving billions to such
countries while we borrow

Actually, they were talk-
ing about NAFTA. Ross
Perot referred to a "gigan-
tic sucking sound" as jobs
went south, but stated peo-

Read amendments
I cannot tell you how dis-
appointed I was to see Mr
Mulligan's column in the
Sunday, Sept. 23, Chronicle
concerning the constitu-
tional changes that will be
on the 2012 ballot. Encour-
aging everyone to vote no
without researching the in-
tent and the long-term ef-
fects is, in my opinion,
irresponsible journalism.
I spent four hours this
morning reading the 11
amendments. I also did a
little Internet research and
see where the ACLU is try-
ing to influence Florida
voters to vote "no" on many
of the amendments. I, for
one, rarely agree with the
ACLU's position.
Time does not allow me
to go through each and
every amendment, so I will
address one, Amendment
No. 6. Whether you are pro-
choice or pro-life, do you
want your tax dollars pay-
ing for someone's abortion?
You want an abortion, pay
for it yourself and don't
come knocking on my door
Many of the amendments
have value to our military,
low-income, longtime sen-
ior residences and our
school children. I ask you
to exercise your civic re-
sponsibility and read the
amendments for yourself.
Please don't allow someone
like Mr Mulligan to vote for
you or someday you will re-
gret that decision.

Endorsement LETTERS

Himmel: A-plus
Having a daughter who
has recently graduated
high school from Citrus
County and having been in-
volved in both the band
boosters (Lecanto) and IB
Parent Organization, I have
seen first-hand how suc-
cessful Citrus County
schools are. Come Novem-
ber, I strongly encourage
the citizens of Citrus
County to vote to re-elect
Sandra "Sam" Himmel as
superintendent of schools.
First of all, Citrus County
has been an A-plus school
district for seven years.
That's seven years in a row.
It is impossible to argue
with success like that! As a
small-business owner, I am
focused on getting results,
and that is exactly what Su-
perintendent Himmel has
done. I don't care if some-
one is a Democrat or a Re-
publican I vote for the
person who can produce re-
sults, and Superintendent
Himmel can.
Moreover, Superinten-
dent Himmel has incredi-
bly energy and attends as
many functions as humanly
possible. Whether it be
watching the halftime show
of our LHS band or visiting
with the IB parents to hear
their concerns, she is al-
ways ready and willing to
be anywhere that is neces-
sary It is rare to see some-
one with that much energy
and commitment
Finally, Superintendent
Himmel treats every per-
son as family Last year
when my daughter Alexis
needed a superior letter of
recommendation, Superin-
tendent Himmel took time
out of her busy schedule to
write one. I cannot think of
many other elected offi-
cials who would take the
time to get this involved
and to be this helpful. I was
absolutely amazed that she
took the time to help my
This fall, I strongly urge
everyone to vote to re-elect
Superintendent Himmel.
We are fortunate in Citrus
County to have someone of
her talent.

Vote for Dawsy
I will be voting for Jeff
Dawsy for sheriff on Nov. 6
- and I am a Republican. I
do not vote based on party
lines. I vote for the candi-
date who will do the best
job and has the best inter-
est of our citizens at heart.
That man is Jeff Dawsy He
has the experience and has
proven his qualifications
over the past 16 years' serv-
ing as our sheriff.

His school resource offi-
cers ensure our children's
safety and their presence
in our schools is a constant
reminder to the youth of
Citrus County that you have
a trusted friend nearby
who is looking out for you.
Sheriff Dawsy's Community
Oriented Policing program
calls upon our willing citi-
zens to help prevent crime
by patrolling our communi-
ties. The safety of our citi-
zens, their property and
their businesses can only
be accomplished by having
properly trained personnel
who have access to the
most current equipment.
Sheriff Dawsy's efforts
have made us (one of the
safest counties) with a pop-
ulation more than 100,000

population is more than
Sheriff Dawsy is as dedi-
cated to his job, personnel,
and citizens as he is to his
own family Sheriff Jeff
Dawsy has my vote!

Proven record
This is my first letter to
the editor, but I feel a very
important one. I would like
people to know from my
point of view a little about
Sam Himmel. I have known
Sam since she was a little
girl and watched her grow
into a very caring woman. I
don't think I have ever seen
her without a smile on her
I watched her go through
the death of her mother, my
best friend, and her father
and she overcame these
with courage and strength.
I have a daughter who is
a teacher in the school sys-
tem and a grandson in the
school here in Inverness
and I feel confident that
she will see to it that the
teachers and students will
receive all that she can
give them. I think she has


proven that she can do the
job as superintendent and
do it well and will continue
to work for our children.
Thank you for your sup-
port for Sam.

A working sheriff
I have known Jeff Dawsy
in excess of 20 years.
Through this time, I have
observed a gentleman who
stands up to his word, com-
mitment, and dedication to
the citizens of this
During these past 20
years plus, I have observed
Jeff moving through the
ranks of road patrol deputy
to sergeant, lieutenant and
finally to captain of the
Emergency Operations Cen-
ter before entering his bid
to become sheriff in 1996.
Having won the election
in 1996, I saw Jeff Dawsy
truly demonstrate his lead-
ership skills by reaching
out to the citizens and mak-
ing them a part of the Cit-
rus County Sheriff's Office.
He has always kept his
word when a promise is
made, balancing his re-
sponsibilities as a family
man and his responsibili-
ties as a leader, always
demonstrating "if I ask you
to do it, I too will do it."
Jeff Dawsy is a working
sheriff, many mornings up
well before the first light of
dawn and not retiring to
the comforts of home until
well in the night many

well after midnight.
Jeff Dawsy has the years
of experience in law en-
forcement, tremendous ju-
dicial knowledge, and
budgeting experiences that
make him totally qualified
to remain sheriff in Citrus
This man truly cares
about you and me, and all
citizens of this community.
He strives, studies and re-
searches techniques and
methods to improve and/or
enhance technology within
the sheriff's office that will
keep this community one of
the safest in the state.
A vote for Sheriff Jeff
Dawsy will give him the op-
portunity to continue the
many programs that are a
benefit to all of us; young,
elderly, rich, middle class,
and those less fortunate
than others. He is a man of
sincerity, honesty, integrity,
and someone who was born
to lead.
Pam Ferguson

The right choice
While I have only been a
citizen of Citrus County for
a few years, I have had the
pleasure of working with
Sheriff Dawsy on an issue
of public safety Although
Sheriff Dawsy and I dis-
agreed on the best solution
to the problem, in the end I
have learned his directions
seem to have been better
than my suggestion.
Sheriff Dawsy always lis-
tened, took advice and even

agreed to disagree, always
professionally and politely
My limited experience in
emergency services has
shown me that you don't fix
it unless it is broken.
Sheriff Dawsy has
proven that the citizens'
well-being is his first prior-
ity and the safety of the
public safety professional
who are sworn to protect us
come next. That is the cor-
rect set of priorities for
anyone sworn to provide
for our safety.
Michael R. Rehfeld
Pine Ridge

I'm originally from Ocala,
where my father served on
the Ocala Police Depart-
ment as a captain for 17
years and then went on to
become a professor of crim-
inology and law enforce-
ment at CFCC (now College
of Central Florida) for 20
years. Needless to say, I
have lived a lifetime im-
mersed in law enforcement
I moved to Citrus County
18 years ago and soon after
Jeff Dawsy was elected
sheriff. I have been amazed
at the many accomplish-

ments that he's been able
to achieve here in "little
old Citrus County." We have
a sheriff's office that rivals
most larger counties in all
aspects. It would have been
a lot easier for him to just
roll along and let our
county stay in the 'Andy of
Mayberry" era, but he's
chosen to move forward
and use modern technology
and techniques to keep our
crime rates low.
As a citizen, I cannot for
the life of me understand
why anyone would not
want the best trained, most
well equipped deputies on
the road (unless you are a
criminal). I believe Sheriff
Dawsy has proven his com-
mitment to us, the taxpay-
ers, and I certainly sleep
better at night knowing he
and his men are out there.
My father passed last De-
cember, but he spoke many
times of how impressed he
was with our sheriff, and
said if there were more
like him, our state would
be a much better place. For
this and many other rea-
sons, I and my wife support
Jeff Dawsy for sheriff.

Sound OFF

Define lyngbya
I have just read "Frustra-
tion mounts over well," on
Sept. 12's newspaper. One
of the speakers said they
have lyngbya cleanup. That
word is not in the diction-
ary. Would you please tell
me what it means? Or is this
another pull the wool over
the people's eyes?
Editor's note: Lyngbya is a
type of algae that grows like
strands of long, green, mucky
hair in fresh water, forming
mats that block out light and
can, eventually, dominate the
Selfish teachers
These public employee
unions have become too
strong. And who is really im-
portant in Chicago the
teachers or the students?
The teachers are supposed
to be there for the students
every day, but they're only
thinking of themselves.
Their average salary, by the
way, is $74,000 a year.
Show the Rays
This is Thursday, Sept.
13. Why isn't the Rays base-
ball game televised today?
It's one of the most impor-
tant games of the series.
We're almost near the end.
Why can't they put it on TV?
Why do we have to see
something that's immaterial
to anybody?
Editor's note: The Rays
played at 12:35 p.m. that
day. Major League Baseball's
blackout rules are a mystery to
us, but the SUN network does
not televise all games. These
factors may have contributed
to the omission.
Bad reputation
I'd just like to say I don't
think Beverly Hills is getting
a fair rap. ... I must say I
think it's not fair that when
something good happens,
the newspaper lists the ad-
dress as Pine Ridge. When
something bad happens,
they list it as Beverly Hills. I
know Pine Ridge technically
is in Beverly Hills, but it
gives Beverly Hills a bad rep
unfairly anyway. I live in Bev-
erly Hills and I must say that
my neighborhood has im-

I can't water my lawn. I just
think something needs to
be done about any such stu-
pid, stupid reason for them
to do that.

Sound Off, "Saves a lot of
trouble," about the 25 cents
being charged for a shop-
ping cart. ... Next time you
complain about the econ-
omy and no jobs, you re-
member that the person
who got those carts out of
the parking lot got paid. The
person who bagged your
groceries got paid.
Unemploy Congress
We have millions of peo-
ple in this country who want
to work but don't have jobs.
Then we have Congress
filled with people who have
jobs but don't seem to want
to work. Let's switch them
around. Put Congress on
unemployment and give
their jobs and their salaries
and benefits to people who
will work.
Violent news
I'm calling about the arti-
cle you printed, the Sept. 14
article about Islamic prac-

tice as far as people being,
for (committing) robberies,
having their right arms and
left legs cut off. If you have
any courage to print this,
why has not the Muslim peo-
ple in the United States
voiced their concerns about
these practices because they
are a nonviolent religion? But
every time you see in the
paper, which you printed,
they are very violent.
'Stupid book fair'
I'm a little bent out of
shape with the school sys-
tem. They got this book fair
for the last five days and
they keep sending the kids
home with these crazy
amounts. My daughter's ask-
ing me for $10 one day and
she wanted $7 another day
for books. This is ridiculous.
Why is the school selling
books? It's not their business
to be selling books. It's their
business to be teaching our
kids. Sam Himmel needs to
look into this and stop this
stupid book fair thing. I think
it's ridiculous and puts the
parents on edge because
sometimes we just don't
have the money to give to
the kids. It's got to stop. It's
Tax water bottlers

We don't need to pay an-
other consultant to do
something for the county
when we've got staff mem-
bers in the county that can
do the same job, probably a
better job. Let me suggest
one way the county could
probably generate funds for
the budget shortfall without
doing it on the backs of the
taxpayers: Charge the water
bottling company 1 cent for
each gallon of water
pumped from the well lo-
cated in our county. Do you
know that 1-cent fee, if you
average the proposed daily
take in our water, would
bring into the county coffers
about $422,000 a year?
They tear up our roads and
stuff hauling our stuff out
of the county, paying out-of-
county people, and also the
bottling plant gets another
county's tax paid to them. If
I were a county commis-
sioner, somebody would
have to prove to me I could-
n't tax those people.
Change water laws
I cannot believe that they
are letting them them
being the people that are
drawing down 150,000 a
day out of our aquifer. We
won't get a benefit, a thing
out of it monetarily, but yet

Waste of money
This is about the new
solar-powered speed lights
that are out on Pleasant
Grove Road by Pleasant
Grove Elementary and also
on Highland Boulevard by
Citrus High and Inverness
Primary. You know, those
things are a waste of money.
They hardly ever work and
they don't even give you ac-
curate speeds half the time.
It shows you you're going the
wrong speed limit, but
you're looking right at your
speedometer and it shows
your speedometer as going
50 and it's saying that you're
going 35. So I think that's a
waste of time when it
doesn't work, which is
ridiculous. It only works
when it wants to work. I
think it as a waste of money.
Hopefully, other people
agree. Maybe they can fix it
or just get rid of them.
Port before horse
Citrus County does not
need a seaport. We have
nothing to export and noth-
ing to import. What we need
are some manufacturing
companies to create jobs.
Having a port is like buying
a cart before we buy the
horse to pull it.
Why no warning?
Mr. Editor of the
Chronicle: As a person that
buys your Chronicle, I would
like to know if you have any
information or can get infor-
mation; was our president
warned about attacks on

our embassies in Cairo and
all the other eastern coun-
tries? If there was an attack
warning, wasn't our CIA on
top of it? If not, why not?
Don't you have any re-
porters that can tell us?
Editor's note: Unfortu-
nately, the Chronicle cannot
afford to send reporters to the
Middle East. The newspaper
relies on reporting from The
Associated Press. As to the vi-
olent protests sparked by the
anti-Muslim film made in the
United States and promoted
on You Tube, according to
Wikipedia, the 14-minute
trailer had been uploaded in
July, but not dubbed in Arabic
until September. An Egyptian
TV station ran it Sept. 9, and
the protests broke out Sept.
11. To date, at least 50 peo-
ple have died in the violence.
Some Muslims have put a
bounty on the head of the
film's producer, Mark Basseley
Youssef, aka Nakoula Basse-
ley Nakoula, aka Sam Bacile.
Shameful roads
Citrus County, you ought to
be ashamed of yourself. You
raised the gas prices up 5, 6
cents just to fix the roads
and you never fixed the
roads. Then you got money,
stimulus money, and you
haven't done anything. Yeah,
you do a few. You're patching
all the roads. Shame, shame,
shame on you.
Good letter
I read today in this morn-
ing's paper (Sept. 15) Roger

Community stands
behind prank victim
A mid-Michigan community
cheered on a 16-year-old
sophomore the victim of an
apparent prank by classmates
- as she took her place with
other members of her high
school's homecoming court.
Whitney Kropp was named
to the homecoming court of
the 800-student school earlier
this month, but said she felt
betrayed after some students
suggested her selection was
a joke. She said she had
been picked on in the past,
but it intensified afterward.
Her story has sparked na-
tional interest and on Friday,
residents and business own-
ers in the West Branch area
turned out to the game to
show their support and help
take a stand against bullying.
Orange T-shirts Kropp's
favorite color have been
sold with the slogan "It's not
cool to be cruel."
"It's just so much right now
for me," Kropp said Friday
night. "I had thoughts about
not coming but I actually
changed my mind and came
out. I just thought maybe I
won't have fun. But I'm hav-
ing a lot of fun right now."

GM recalls 40K cars
over fuel leaks
DETROIT General Mo-
tors Co. is recalling more
than 40,000 cars sold in
warm-weather states be-
cause a plastic part might
crack and cause a fuel leak.
The company is recalling
Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac
G5 sedans from the 2007
through 2009 model years
and Chevrolet Equinox and
Pontiac Torrent SUVs and
Saturn Ion sedans from the
2007 model year.
The recall affects vehicles
sold or currently registered in
Arizona, California, Florida,
Nevada or Texas.
The vehicles have plastic
parts connected to the fuel
pump which could crack. If
the crack gets large enough,
fuel could leak and cause a fire.
GM says its warranty data
indicates that the problem is
far more common in warm-
weather states. It will repair
the vehicles for free in those
states. Owners will be notified
of the recall by mail.
Troubled lottery
winner found dead
ECORSE, Mich. Police
said a Detroit-area woman who
collected welfare benefits de-
spite winning a $735,000 lot-
tery prize has died of a
possible drug overdose.
Ecorse police Sgt. Cornelius
Herring confirmed 25-year-
old Amanda Clayton was
found dead about 9 a.m. Sat-
urday at a home in the com-
munity southwest of Detroit.
Clayton, of Lincoln Park,
pleaded no contest to fraud in
June and was sentenced to
nine months' probation in July.
Her attorney has said Clayton
repaid about $5,500 in food
aid and medical benefits.
Michigan's Department of
Human Services said Clayton
didn't inform the state about her
pre-tax lottery windfall last year.
Gov. Rick Snyder signed a
law in April requiring lottery
officials to tell Human Serv-
ices about new winners.
-From wire reports

Associated Press

last we saw the chief justice
of the United States on the
bench, John Roberts was
joining with the Supreme
Court's liberals in an un-
likely lineup that upheld
President Barack Obama's
health care overhaul.
Progressives applauded
Roberts' statesmanship.
Conservatives uttered cries
of betrayal.
Now, the Supreme Court
is embarking on a new term
beginning Monday that
could be as consequential
as the last one, with the
prospect for major rulings
about affirmative action, gay
marriage and voting rights.
Roberts will be watched
closely, following his health
care vote, for fresh signs
that he's becoming less ide-

ologically predictable.
The first piece of evi-
dence could be in the
court's consideration of the
University of Texas' already
limited use of race to help
fill its incoming freshman
classes, which comes before
the court Oct 10. The outcome
could further limit or even
end the use of racial prefer-
ences in college admissions.
The court also is expected
to confront gay marriage in
some form. Several cases
seek to guarantee federal
benefits for legally married
same-sex couples. A provi-
sion of the 1996 Defense of
Marriage Act deprives
same-sex couples of a range
of federal benefits available
to heterosexual couples.
Several federal courts
have agreed that the provi-
sion of the law is unconsti-
tutional, a situation that

practically ensures that the
high court will step in.
A separate appeal asks
the justices to sustain Cali-
fornia's Proposition 8, the
amendment to the state con-
stitution that outlawed gay
marriage in the nation's
largest state. Federal courts
in California have struck
down the amendment.
Once again, many legal
analysts expect Roberts es-
sentially to be against gay
marriage. "The outcome
clearly turns on how
Anthony Kennedy votes,"
said Georgetown University
law professor Michael
The justices may not even
consider whether to hear
the gay marriage issue until
There still is a chance
that the court could become
enmeshed in election dis-

putes, even before the bal-
lots are counted. Suits in
Ohio over early voting and
provisional ballots appear
the most likely to find their
way to the justices before
the Nov 6 election, said
Richard Hasen, an election
law expert at the University

In Syria, heritage the latest victim

Associated Press
BEIRUT -A fire sparked
by battles between Syrian
President Bashar Assad's
troops and rebel fighters
tore through Aleppo's
centuries-old covered mar-
ket Saturday, burning
wooden doors and scorching
stone stalls and vaulted pas-
sageways. The souk is one of
a half-dozen renowned cul-
tural sites in the country
that have become collateral
damage in the civil war
The damage to one of the
best-preserved old souks in
the Middle East was the
worst yet to a UNESCO
World Heritage site in Syria.
Across the country, looters
have broken into a historic
castle, stolen artifacts from
museums and damaged
ruins in the ancient city of
Palmyra, antiquities offi-
cials and Syrian experts say
The Aleppo market, a
major tourist attraction with
its narrow stone alleys and
stores selling perfume, fab-
rics and spices, had been
the site of occasional gun
battles and shelling for weeks.
But amateur video posted
Saturday showed wall-to-wall
flames engulfing wooden
doors as burning debris fell
away from the storefronts.
Activists said hundreds of
shops were affected.
"It's a big loss and a
tragedy that the old city has
now been affected," Kishore
Rao, director of UNESCO's
World Heritage Center, told
The Associated Press by
telephone from Paris.

In this image taken from video obtained from Shaam News Network, which has been au-
thenticated based on its contents and other AP reporting, a fire rages at a medieval souk
in Aleppo, Syria. Syrian rebels and residents of Aleppo struggled Saturday to contain a huge fire
that destroyed parts of the city's medieval souks, or markets, in a historic district that helped
make the heart of Aleppo, Syria's largest city and hub, a UNESCO world heritage site.

Most of the other sites rec-
ognized as heritage sites by
UNESCO, the global cultural
agency, are also believed to
have suffered damage dur-
ing the 18-month battle to
oust Assad, Rao said. The
ancient center of Aleppo -
Syria's largest city has
been hit the hardest, he said.
"It is a very difficult and
tragic situation there," said
Ahmad al-Halabi, a local ac-
tivist speaking by phone
from the area. He said
rebels and civilians were
trying to control the blaze,
but only had a few fire
The fire in the souk
erupted late Friday and was
still burning Saturday

On Thursday, rebels
launched what they said
would be a "decisive battle"
for the city, followed by days
of heavy fighting, including
shelling and street combat.
Amateur video has shown
rebels taking cover behind
walls and makeshift barri-
ers, attacking regime forces
with grenades and assault
rifles. Activists reported heavy
shelling by pro-Assad troops.
It's not clear what set off
the fire in the old market,
made of hundreds of stone
stalls that line covered al-
leys with vaulted ceilings.
The market stalls lie be-
neath the city's towering 13th
century citadel, where ac-
tivists say regime troops and

snipers have taken up
The Syrian conflict has
killed more than 30,000 peo-
ple, according to activists.
Rodrigo Martin, a Brus-
sels expert on Syrian histor-
ical sites, said the Syrian
regime bears the bulk of the
responsibility for the de-
struction because it signed
international agreements to
protect cultural sites.
For at least two millennia,
cultural sites have been
threatened or destroyed by
wars throughout the
Mideast, Martin said.
"History continues, what-
ever we do," Martin said.

Austerity protests
turn violent again
MADRID Tens of thou-
sands of Spaniards and Por-
tuguese rallied in the streets
of their countries' capitals
Saturday to protest enduring
deep economic pain from
austerity measure, and the
demonstration in Madrid
turned violent after Spaniards
enraged over a long-lasting
recession and sky-high un-
employment clashed with riot
police for the third time in less
than a week near Parliament.
Spain's state TV said early
Sunday that two people were
hurt and 12 detained near the
barricades erected in down-
town Madrid to shield the
Parliament building. Televi-
sion images showed police
charging protesters and hit-
ting them with their batons,
but the violence did not ap-
pear as severe as a protest
on Tuesday when 38 people
were arrested and 64 injured.
Evidence tossed at
start of butler's trial
once-trusted butler went on trial
Saturday for allegedly stealing
papal documents and pass-
ing them off to a journalist.
In its first hearing in the
case, the three-judge Vatican
tribunal threw out some evi-
dence gathered during the in-
vestigation of butler Paolo
Gabriele, who is charged with
aggravated theft.
Gabriele faces up to four
years in prison if convicted.

Beauty outside doesn't mean pretty inside

Associated Press

PYONGYANG, North Korea A for-
eign tour agency has released the first
public photos from inside the tallest
and most notorious building in -
North Korea: the 105-story, pyra-
mid-shaped Ryugyong Hotel,
which remains unfinished more
thai 20 years after construction began.
Be ijing-i)ased Koryo Tours got a peek at the interior) or the hotel
in Pyong t ang. the capital. Photos taken by the company Sept. 23 show a bare con-
crete lobby, as well as sweel)ing views of Pyongyang from a viewing platfoirm.
North Korea began building the Ryugyong in the 1980s but stopped when funding ran out in the 1990s. Exterior
construction resumed three years ago, but few have been allowed inside. Koryo says it will open in two or three years.
The enormous hotel remains a source of fascination and ridicule for the outside world.

knows the sprawling resort's story
better than Jim Ponce.

Sixty years after first coming to work as a front-
desk clerk at the hotel, 95-year-old Ponce still serves
as the in-house historian, showing up every Tuesday
to offer a tour to guests.
He dresses in period clothes, this day most notable
for a red blazer, Panama hat and brass-handled
ebony walking stick. And from the frescoed ceilings
to the terrazzo floors, the 15th-century tapestries to
the Roman arches, he guides visitors through one of
America's most celebrated hotels. He's spent so much
time here, he admits it's as if his own history is en-
twined with
that of the

more than just
staid commen-
tary on gilded
ceilings, Venetian chandeliers and other tokens of ex-

Diana and Prince Charles entered the Mediter-
ranean Ballroom for a dance in 1985, brushes with
everyone from Bette Davis to Eleanor Roosevelt,
even splitting a bottle of Moet & Chandon with Phyl-
lis Diller.
"We love to drop names," Ponce said.
The Breakers was first opened under a different
name in 1896 by Henry Flagler, the oil and rail tycoon
who developed much of Florida's eastern coast. Fla-
gler's name is invoked throughout the tour and Ponce
pays a quiet tribute as he passes his portrait.
"The man himself," he says softly, with a wisp of
Southern drawl.
The Breakers twice burned to the ground, in 1903
and 1925. Ponce tells his roughly 30 visitors this day
that the latter fire was blamed on the wife of the
then-mayor of Chicago, who left a curling iron
plugged in at the resort
"Chicago girls are noted for that sort of thing," he
says to laughter.
Ponce tells of hearing the heartbreaking news of
the fire as a boy, but The Breakers was rebuilt in

Jim Ponce stands outside The Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach on Sept. 11 after leading a tour of the old hotel. No
place in this storied playground of the rich evokes as much history as The Breakers, and no one knows the sprawl-
ing resort's story better than Ponce. Sixty years after first coming to work as a front-desk clerk at the hotel, 95-
year-old Ponce still serves as the in-house historian, showing up every Tuesday to offer a tour to guests.

stunning fashion, in just under a year.
His own history at the hotel began in 1952, after fin-
ishing World War II service in the Navy
He held various jobs at The Breakers and hotels
around Palm Beach until returning in 1977 as an as-
sistant manager. He retired in 1982, but never really
left He vows to keep coming as long as his health
"He has perspective that none of us have," said
Kirk Bell, the hotel's manager. "He has a history of
the people that have come and gone royalty, presi-
dents, movie stars, people in all walks of life."
Ask Ponce any question and he musters an answer.
But ask him his favorite spot on the property's 140
acres, and he has trouble picking.
"It's so classically beautiful that it's hard to say," he
He knows what budget hotels are like; he spent
some time as a Holiday Inn manager And he knows
luxury, too, rattling off the names of The Jefferson,
The Greenbrier, The Homestead and other resorts of
the well-heeled at which he has stayed. They're all

very beautiful, he admits, but he wouldn't trade them
for anything.
"They just don't touch The Breakers," he said.
Ponce has his tour down to a science the laugh
lines, the gestures with his walking stick, the minute
details on shades of paint and numbers of rooms and
historical dates. With him at the helm, the Magnolia
Room isn't just another oceanfront parlor, it's a
glimpse of Old Florida life of afternoon teas and let-
ter-writing by a crackling fire. That space above the
Circle Dining Room isn't just for intimate meals, it
was a Prohibition-era hideaway for those craving a
cocktail at dinner He has no ghost stories to share,
but tells of the hotel's stint as an Army hospital,
points out hidden features of a painting and gives a
history of an elaborate gold ceiling.
Around each new corner, Ponce has another anec-
dote. And even as the tour concludes outside the Ital-
ian Renaissance landmark, he can't help but think of
one more.
"You got time for just a short story?" he asks.
And filled with delight, the guests lean in for more.

Dear Annie: My 21-
year-old grand-
daughter recently
confided that she doesn't at-
tract men and doesn't know
why It bothers her a great
deal. She knows it's not her
looks. She is good looking.
She has had some self-
esteem issues due to
dyslexia and received
"Kelly" had
one relationship
that she ended
recently due to
his verbal abuse.
He told her he
"hated her
drama." Kelly is
a nice person
and has many fe-
male friends. But '
she has a strong
voice and tends
to come across as AN N
loud and dra-
matic, especially MAI
in a group of peo-
ple. Sometimes she talks ex-
cessively Kelly is aware that
she is loud and says she
can't help it. My grandson,
Kelly's cousin, told me this
is why men are turned off by
her He says he has difficulty
tolerating this behavior.
We love Kelly and have al-
ways accepted this as part of
her personality even though
it can be annoying. Should I
talk to her about this or sim-
ply hope that she finds
someone who accepts her as
she is? Can she change this
aspect of her personality? -
Worried Grandma
Dear Grandma: Yes, as-
pects of one's personality
can be modified with will-
ingness and effort, but this
is less about personality
than behavior, and that cer-

Please tell Kelly so she can
work on it. Suggest she learn
to modulate her voice so it is
less strident and find ways
to listen more and speak
less so she doesn't monopo-
lize conversations. This is
good advice whether it at-
tracts men or not. Her be-
havior shouldn't be so
abrasive that it prevents
people from get-
ting to know her

Associated Press
TAMPA Florida State's
first road test was a lot tougher
than expected.
EJ Manuel threw for 242
yards and one touchdown,
helping the fourth-ranked
Seminoles remain unbeaten
Saturday night with a 30-17
victory over South Florida.
The win avenged a 2009 loss
to USF, though few gave the
Bulls much of a chance this
time following losses the pre-
vious two weeks to Rutgers
and Ball State.
Yet the second-ever meeting
between the schools and
Florida State's first appear-
ance in Tampa since 1979 -
was more competitive than the
difference on the scoreboard.
"We knew they were going to
try and make their season
right here and get back into it
and play hard, and they did
that, and our kids fought
through it," Florida State
coach Jimbo Fisher said.
"We've got a lot of mistakes to
clean up, and that's a good
thing, but we came out with a
W, and W's are always good."
Receiver Rashad Greene
got the Seminoles going with a
10-yard touchdown run early,
while linebacker Christian
Jones scored on a 12-yard
fumble return and Penn State
transfer Kevin Haplea had a 1-
yard TD reception during a
critical stretch in the third
quarter as the Seminoles
pulled away
"We hit a lot of big plays. We
just didn't convert in the red
zone," said Fisher, whose team
entered averaging nearly 575
yards and 56 points per game.
"If we convert in the red zone
and get touchdowns instead of
field goals, it's a little different

knocked woozy by a hit at the
end of a 20-yard run that was
wiped out by a holding penalty.
With the clock showing no
time remaining in the third
quarter, the officials an-
nounced the period would end
with an untimed down. Fresh-

man Matt Floyd came off the
bench to replace Daniels on
third-and-12 from the USF 23.
The backup was sacked at the
12 by Cornelius Carradine,
who forced a fumble that
Jones scooped up and re-
turned for a TD. That put the
Seminoles up 30-10.

gether ORDERS
The cul-
tural status of tattooing has evolved
from that of an antisocial behavior
in the 1960s to that of a trendy fash-
ion statement in the 1990s. Tattoos
are commonly seen on professional
sports figures from the NFL, NHL
and NBA to ice skating champions,
cage fighters and triathletes.
There is a long history of tattoo-
ing, as many of you may know better
than I, but there is also a substan-
tial medical literature. While there
is a top-10 list for almost everything,
there is also a list for athletes with
the best and worst tattoos.
The concept of Mike Tyson's fa-
cial tattoo actually has a historical
basis, reflecting a warrior face as
opposed to the prison face when he
originally did this several years ago.
The word tattoo comes from the
Tahitian word "tatau," which
means to mark something. Tattoos
began more than 5,000 years ago
and are as varied as the people who
wear them.
Tattoos are created by inserting

Decorative body art has its values
and meanings to the individual.
The medical problem faced in the
ancient days of tattoos was not as
serious as the tattoos of today How
they are applied or even the inks
used are reasonably similar The
difference in society today is the
transmitted diseases.
Tattoo remorse, the removal of
the art of last night's bright idea,
can cost up to 10 times more than
the inking, over $5,000 or more, is
not covered by Obamacare, is un-
comfortable, time-consuming and
usually incomplete.
Tattoos involve many needles
making many tiny punctures in the
skin. Each needle puncture carries

Associated Press
Toronto Blue Jays Adeiny Hechavarria, left, and Rajai Davis celebrate their team's 3-2 win over the New York Yankees
Saturday in Toronto.

Yankees lose, Orioles win

Teams now tied

for AL East lead

Associated Press

TORONTO -Adeiny Hechavarria
doubled home the tiebreaking run in
the sixth inning and the Toronto Blue
Jays beat the Yankees 3-2.
Toronto's Rajai Davis homered
and had three hits as the Blue Jays
increased the pressure on the Yan-
kees, who wasted several opportuni-
ties early
Shawn Hill (1-0) pitched three in-
nings of scoreless relief for the win
and Casey Janssen closed it out for
his 21st save in 24 chances.
Andy Pettitte's stretch of 11 score-
less innings since his return from a
broken lower left leg was halted in
the first when Davis hit a one-out
solo homer to left, his eighth.
Davis had hits in his first three at
bats after a 4-for-4 night Friday, giv-
ing him seven straight hits before he
struck out in the seventh.
The Yankees loaded the bases
twice in the first inning but managed
just a pair of sacrifice flies by Robin-
son Cano and Curtis Granderson.
New York loaded the bases again
in the third but failed to score, com-
ing up empty when Hechavarria
made a diving catch on Eduardo
Nunez's sharp liner for the third out.
Toronto tied it in the fifth when
Jeff Mathis led off with a double, took
third on a fly and scored on a two-out
single by Davis.


Tigers 6, Twins 2
MINNEAPOLIS Miguel Cabrera hit
a three-run homer to move into at least a
tie for the lead in all three triple crown cat-
egories and Justin Verlander struck out
eight in seven innings to help the Detroit
Tigers stay in front in the AL Central with
a 6-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins.
Cabrera's blast in the eighth inning off
Casey Fien was his 43rd home run for
the year, moving him into a tie with Texas
star Josh Hamilton for the AL lead. He
also leads the AL in batting average
(.327) and RBIs (136) as he looks to be-
come the first player since 1967 to lead
the league in all three categories.
Verlander (17-8) allowed four hits and
one unearned run to drop his ERA to 2.64
for the Tigers.

Athletics 7, Mariners 4
(10 innings)
OAKLAND, Calif. Josh Donaldson
hit a tying two-run home run in the ninth
inning and Brandon Moss hit a game-
ending three-run homer in the 10th, and
the Athletics gained ground on the first-
place Texas Rangers with a stunning win
over the Mariners.
Coco Crisp singled off Oliver Perez (1-
3) leading off the final inning for his fourth
hit. Stephen Pryor entered with one out
and walked Yoenis Cespedes on four
Moss hammered the first pitch against
Pryor well over the wall in right for his
21st home run, sending Oakland stream-
ing out of the dugout to celebrate its
major-league leading 14th walk-off win.
The A's are 2 1/2 games back of Texas
in the division and 2 1/2 ahead of the Los
Angeles Angels for the final wild card.

Orioles 4, Red Sox 3
BALTIMORE Chris Davis hit his
30th home run, rookie Manny Machado
lined a go-ahead shot in the seventh in-
ning and the Orioles climbed into a tie atop
the AL East by defeating the Red Sox.
After finishing in the division cellar in
the previous four seasons, Baltimore (91-
67) is now in first place with the New York
Yankees. Both teams have four games left.
Baltimore went ahead 3-0 in the fourth,
then let Boston pull even before Machado
homered a liner into the second row of the
left-field seats off Felix Doubront (11-10).


Braves 2, Mets 0
ATLANTA- Mike Minor pitched 6 1-3
sharp innings to win his fifth straight deci-
sion, Martin Prado and Jason Heyward
each had an RBI and the Atlanta Braves
beat the New York Mets 2-0.

Chipper Jones, who played his next-to-
last regular-season game at Turner Field,
was hitless in four at-bats.
Craig Kimbrel earned his 41st save of
in 44 chances with a scoreless but shaky
The Braves have won six of seven and
11 of 15, but they began the night four
games behind Washington in the National
League East with six games to play.
If they don't win the division, the
Braves will host a wild-card playoff game
next Friday.

Pirates 2, Reds 1
PITTSBURGH -Andrew McCutchen
hit a solo home run off Jonathan Broxton
with one out in the ninth inning, lifting the
Pittsburgh Pirates over the Cincinnati
Reds 2-1.
A day after getting no-hit by Cincin-
nati's Homer Bailey, the Pirates won with
eight hits.
McCutchen's 31st homer helped Pitts-
burgh keep a record 20th consecutive
losing season at bay for at least a day.
The All-Star hit a 2-2 fastball from Broxton
(4-4) a couple rows deep in right-center
before getting mobbed at home plate by
his teammates.
Joel Hanrahan (5-1) worked out of a
two-on, two-out jam in the ninth, setting
the stage for McCutchen. Pedro Alvarez
had two hits for the Pirates, who won for
just the seventh time this month.

Brewers 9, Astros 5
MILWAUKEE Marco Estrada struck
out 11 in eight shutout innings, Corey
Hart homered twice and the Milwaukee
Brewers beat the Houston Astros 9-5 on
Saturday night.
The Brewers began the day barely in
the playoff race, a year they reached the
NL championship series. Any Milwaukee
loss or St. Louis win would mean
Hart drove in four runs to back Estrada
(5-7), who won for the third time in four
starts. The right-hander allowed only four
singles and a walk after giving up six
earned runs in just four innings against
Washington in his last outing.
Houston hit three home runs in the
ninth to score five times off reliever Livan
Hernandez. Fernando Martinez and Brian
Bogusevic hit two-run homers and Tyler
Greene added a solo shot.

Nationals 6, Cardinals 4
(10 innings)
ST. LOUIS Michael Morse circled
the bases for a grand slam after taking an
imaginary swing, and the Washington Na-
tionals cut their magic number for winning
the NL East to one Saturday night, beat-
ing St. Louis 6-4 on Kurt Suzuki's two-run
double in the 10th inning.
The Nationals were forced to wait at
least another day when second-place
Atlanta won.
St. Louis' magic number for clinching
the second NL wild-card spot remained at
The Nationals opened the game with a
blast, and a bit of comedy.
Morse's drive with the bases loaded
cleared the wall but caromed back onto
the field, sending runners and fielders
scurrying. The umpires reviewed the ball
on replay and confirmed it was indeed a
grand slam.
The umps ordered all runners to re-
trace their steps and Morse back to the
plate. He mimicked his swing minus a
bat, then made his trip around the bases.

Morris breaks Miami passing record


team to 44-37 win

over N.. CState

MIAMI Gino Torretta won a
Heisman Trophy at Miami. Steve
Walsh, Ken Dorsey, Vinny Tes-
taverde, Bernie Kosar, Craig Erick-
son, Jim Kelly, they all played a role
in the school's becoming known as
"Quarterback U."
And none of them ever had a game
like Stephen Morris did Saturday
Morris set school and Atlantic
Coast Conference records with 566
passing yards, the last 62 of them
coming on a touchdown strike to
Phillip Dorsett with 19 seconds re-
maining, as the Hurricanes won in
wild fashion for the second straight
week by beating North Carolina
State 44-37.
His final line: 26 of 49 passing,
and on an 87-degree afternoon
when players from both sides were
succumbing to cramps, Morris had
the strength to have his last throw to
Dorsett sail 62 yards on the fly, sav-
ing the Hurricanes after they
wasted a 16-point first-quarter lead
and a 10-point cushion in the fourth.
"People dream about it," Morris

said. "But it's kind of crazy when
you're actually in the moment. I'm
speechless about it."

more succinct. "Holy (bleep)," he

The teams combined for 56 first
downs and 1,315 yards of offense.
Miami had two players top the 100-
yard receiving mark last week in its
comeback win against Georgia
Tech; this week, the Hurricanes
had two guys reach 180 yards, with
Dorsett catching seven passes for
191 yards and Rashawn Scott six
for 180. Miami kicker Jake Wieclaw
missed three field goals, one a 19-
yard chip shot. N.C. State kicker
Niklas Sade missed an extra point
- the snap was blamed but con-
nected on a 50-yarder to tie the
game with 1:58 left.
The biggest difference: N.C.
State finished with six turnovers,
Miami only one.
"If you think it was crazy watch-
ing, it was definitely crazy while
you're in it," said N.C. State run-
ning back Tony Creecy, who fin-
ished with a game-high 120 rushing
yards on 19 attempts and scored a
touchdown. "You can't win with

Americans extend

lead into final day

ofRyder Cup

MEDINAH, Ill. Phil Mickelson
and Keegan Bradley helped stake
the Americans to their biggest lead in
the Ryder Cup in more than 30 years.
Ian Poulter, eyes bulging and fists
shaking with every clutch putt, at
least gave Europe some big momen-
tum over the final frantic hour Sat-
urday at Medinah.
Right when it looked as if the
Americans were a lock to win back
the cup, Poulter birdied his last five
holes to win a crucial point and keep
everyone guessing. Steady chants of
"USA! USA!" gave way to snappy ser-
enades of "Ole, Ole" as both sides
trudged to the team rooms in dark-
ness to prepare for 12 singles
matches on Sunday
The Americans still had a big lead,
10-6. Europe at least had hope.
"The last two putts were massive,"
European captain Jose Maria Olaza-
bal said after watching Poulter stay
undefeated in this Ryder Cup by
rolling in one last birdie putt from 12
feet. "That gives us a chance. It's
been done before in the past. Tomor-
row is a big day"
Only one team has ever rallied
from four points behind on the final
day the United States in that fa-
mous comeback at Brookline in 1999.
Olazabal remembers it well. He was
in the decisive match when Justin
Leonard rolled in a 45-foot birdie
putt on the 17th hole.

Donald and Sergio Garcia were on
the verge of blowing a 4-up lead to
hard-charging Woods and Steve
Stricker, hanging on when Donald
matched two birdies with Woods, in-
cluding a tee shot into the 17th that
plopped down 2 feet from the cup.
Woods and Stricker lost all three of
their matches, even though Woods
made five birdies on the back nine
for the second straight day
Woods was thinking more of the
big picture.
"Being up four is nice," he said.
"We are in a great spot right now to

Poulter and McIlroy were 2 down
with six holes to play against Jason
Dufner and Zach Johnson when McIl-
roy made a 15-foot birdie putt on the

Hamlin takes pole at Dover International Speedway

Logano dominates

for Nationwide

win in Delaware

Associated Press

DOVER, Del. Could it really
be true love between Denny Ham-
lin and Dover?
So far, it's at least a crush.
His performance Sunday will
really determine the fate of this
Trying his best to adjust his ap-
proach toward his least favorite
track, Hamlin's reignited
courtship produced fantastic re-
sults Saturday when he turned a
lap of 159.299 mph to win the pole

at Dover International Speedway
Hamlin has been open in his
disdain for the 1-mile concrete
oval and knew he'd have to con-
quer his Dover demons to keep his
driven bid for his first career Cup
championship rolling along.
Hamlin, third in the points
standings, turned to a sports psy-
chologist for advice. The message
for Hamlin was this, "Let your
challenge for the week be to fall in
love with this track."
Hamlin says the good karma,
and a great No. 11 Toyota, all
played a part in the turnaround.
"I think that right now we have
everything rolling," Hamlin said.
"That part of it is giving me a ton
of confidence."
Hamlin is six points behind
Brad Keselowski and seven points
behind leader Jimmie Johnson.

Johnson starts 11th as he chases
history at Dover. He raced his way
into the track's history books in
June with his seventh win on the
concrete, matching the mark held
by Hall of Fame drivers Richard
Petty and Bobby Allison.
No active driver owns the track
like the five-time Sprint Cup
champion. Johnson led 289 of the
400 laps and looked every bit like
the driver who swept the two Cup
races at Dover in 2002 and 2009.
Johnson also won at Dover on
Sept. 26,2010 and he won the Sep-
tember 2005 race.
Dover has traditionally given
Hamlin fits. He has an average
finish of 20.5 in 13 career starts at
Dover. He finished 36th or worse
during a four-race stretch from
2007 to 2009. He's said he just
doesn't like the track known as the

Monster Mile.
Here's a curve. On Saturday, he
talked about winning.
"We've got a car that's very ca-
pable of staying in the front and
hopefully we'll have a shot to
win," Hamlin said.
Hamlin won his 12th career
pole, third this season, and, no
surprise here, his first pole at
Dover. He had never started bet-
ter than third.
Logano charges to
Nationwide win at Dover
DOVER, Del. Joey Logano
romped his way to a season sweep
at Dover.
Logano dominated on the concrete
Saturday to win the Nationwide Series
race at Dover International Speedway.
This win was never in doubt.

Logano has struggled to transfer his
success in the second-tier series to
Sprint Cup racing, one reason why
he's leaving Joe Gibbs Racing for
Penske Racing in 2013. But in Nation-
wide, few drivers can match Logano.
He led 184 of the 200 laps in the
No. 18 Toyota and raced to his series-
leading seventh victory of the season.
He won his 16th race in 105 career
Nationwide starts. Logano moved into
a tie for 16th on the on career victory
list in Nationwide.
"My monster trophy from last time
was lonely and needed a friend,"
Logano said. "I'm glad I was able to
get one for him."
Paul Menard was second, followed
by Michael Annett, points leader Elliott
Sadler and Kyle Busch.
Sadler has a nine-point lead over
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in the points race.

UF's Debose goes from
big hope to big letdown
GAINESVILLE It no doubt wasn't
fair for former Florida coach Urban
Meyer to compare receiver Andre De-
bose to Percy Harvin before he even
stepped on campus.
Harvin was one of the top playmak-
ers in school history. He turned short
passes into huge gains, made defend-
ers look silly with open-field moves and
probably would have been a Heisman
Trophy contender had he not shared
the spotlight with all-everything quarter-
back Tim Tebow.
Debose was supposed to fill the void
created when Harvin left school early
for the NFL in 2009. Instead, the fourth-
year junior from Sanford has seemingly
taken a step back this season.
"There's a key to every kid, and
we've got to find that key to motivate
any young man, not just Andre," coach
Will Muschamp said. "Day in, day out,
to consistently perform well, to consis-
tently do it the right way, generally your
practice habits carry over to the game."
Debose doesn't have a catch for the
11th-ranked Gators (4-0, 3-0 South-
eastern Conference), who are off this
weekend before hosting No. 3 LSU.
The program's prized recruit in 2009
has two carries for a yard, has seven
punt returns for 67 yards and is averag-
ing 24.2 yards on six kickoff returns.
He has more fumbles than first downs.
"Guys that don't go out and consis-
tently perform well in practice, it generally
carries over to the game," Muschamp
said. "As coaches, we want guys that
consistently do it well and do it right. We
promote that within our program. We're
going to practice what we preach around
here to our football team."
Muschamp said Debose's effort is
part of the problem.
"It's consistently doing it the right way,"
Muschamp said. "Consistent effort."
Debose showed some potential the
last two seasons, catching 26 passes
for 528 yards and four touchdowns and
setting a school record by returning
three kickoffs for scores.

lowing knee surgery to address a lin-
gering high school track injury, Debose
returned two kickoffs for touchdowns in
2010. He was even better last year,
catching 16 passes for 432 yards and
four scores, and returning a kickoff 99
yards for a touchdown against Ohio
State in the Gator Bowl.

Dolphins set to face

hostile Cards defense

Associated Press

GLENDALE, Ariz. The Arizona
Cardinals stifled Tom Brady and
battered Michael Vick.
Next comes Miami rookie quar-
terback Ryan Tannehill, who leads
the Dolphins (1-2) onto dangerous
turf on Sunday
He will face a Cardinals defense
that has allowed just two touch-
downs this season, fewest in the
NFL. Overall, they've given up 40
points, second only to Seattle's 39
through three games.
"It's a fast defense," Miami running
back Reggie Bush said. "They do a
good job at getting a lot of guys to the
ball carrier They thrive off turnovers.
They do a good job at creating
turnovers and stripping the ball."
Arizona could be the league's
biggest September surprise, one of
just three unbeaten teams in the
league (the others are Atlanta and
Houston). The Cardinals are 3-0 for
the first time in 38 years, a statistic
that is a testament to the franchise's
many seasons as an NFL wasteland.
The combination of a stout defense,
standout special teams play and an
offense that has been good enough
under the controls of quarterback
Kevin Kolb have led to the fast start
But this is the first game the Car-
dinals, winners of seven in a row at
home, are favored to win, and there
could be a natural tendency for this
defense to ease up a bit
"Not at all," safety Kerry Rhodes
said. "We've been schooled on that
all week. We're not great. We're not
where we want to be yet. We've got
work to do. Nobody's slacking off.
We'll be ready to go."

Unlike the Washington Redskins

(1-2) have yet to establish an iden-
tity on offense with their young,
strong-armed quarterback.

"For me, whatever they ask me to

winner added. "Whether it's run

going to go out there, and I'll run

Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill will face arguably the best defense of his
young NFL career when the Dolphins play at the Arizona Cardinals today.

tough 23-20 overtime loss to the New
York Jets with a bruised knee, pro-
claimed early in the week that he
would play at Arizona, before ac-
knowledging he was not the coach.
The Cardinals are preparing for a
strong Miami rushing game regard-
less, but it's much more dangerous
when Bush is the ball carrier.
"He's been great this year," Rhodes
said. "He's been running the ball in
between the tackles, something that
was a question mark for him I guess
before he got to Miami. But he's been
running well, running hard. He looks
like an every-down back
"It's not just him. It's a running

back by committee thing. But he is
'the' guy, he's the go-to guy"
The strong running game eases
the pressure on Tannehill, who has
earned a mix of praise and criticism
from Dolphins coach Joe Philbin.
"Frankly, he's got to throw the bal
more accurately than he did las
Sunday," Philbin said. "That's jus
the bottom line. There's no othei
way to cut it with the film. We try t(
be honest with our guys if we can. I
you watch the tape of him, he's doing
some very good things, but on Sun
day he's got to make great decisions
and he's got to throw the ball mor
accurately for us to win the game."

Jags rookie WR Blackmon finding NFL

Associated Press

mon would catch four passes in a
single series at Oklahoma State.
So having four receptions
through three games with the
Jacksonville Jaguars must make
the rookie feel like more of a well-
paid decoy than a go-to guy
"It's not that bad," Blackmon
said Wednesday "When it hap-
pens, it'll happen. I don't control it
All I can do is get out there and

Blackmon has 31 yards receiv-
ing heading into today's game
against Cincinnati. It's hardly the
production the Jaguars (1-2) ex-
pected when they traded up to se-
lect him with the fifth overall pick
in April's draft.
Coach Mike Mularkey believes
Blackmon is pressing to make
plays. Blackmon, meanwhile, has
no idea what all the fuss is about.
"I guess they're all concerned,"
he said. "I have nothing to be con-
cerned about."
Blackmon has been targeted

15 times by quarterback Blaine
Gabbert. Most of the missed con-
nections have been off-target
throws, including what should
have been an easy touchdown in
the season opener at Minnesota,
but Blackmon did drop a per-
fectly placed short pass Sunday
at Indianapolis.
"I just told him to be patient,
'It's coming. We'll get you the ball.
There's going to be a time that
you'll understand what we're
doing,"' Mularkey said. "I think
he's handling it very well. He's

doing everything we ask him to do.
This would be a nice game to be a
breakout game for him. But he's
just got to be patient. It will come
in due time when everything else
starts to fall in place."
The Jaguars have been forced to
tweak things the last two weeks
because of injuries. Guard Eben
Britton (ankle) and right tackle
Cam Bradfield (ankle) were hurt
in the season opener and missed
the last two games.
Those injuries forced rookie

Associated Press
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman has completed just over 51 percent of his passes for 491
yards and four touchdowns against three interceptions.

Dallas Cowboys. Questions have
been raised whether first-year
coach Greg Schiano essentially is
turning his quarterback into a
caretaker rather than a playmaker.
The fourth-year pro statistically
had one of the worst games of his
career a week ago, throwing for 110
yards, one touchdown and one in-
terception in a 16-10 loss to the
Cowboys. Much of that production
came on Tampa Bay's final drive,
and the Bucs finished with just 166
yards of total offense.
The absence of a consistent run-
ning game has been part of the
problem, but Schiano scoffed at the
notion he and offensive coordina-
tor Mike Sullivan hindered Free-
man and wasted a strong defensive
performance with overly conserva-
tive play-calling after taking an
early lead at Dallas.
During one stretch of the second
half, the Bucs had nine first-down
plays and ran the ball on eight for a
total of 23 yards.

"I don't necessarily want to be a
running team. I want to be able to
run the football when we want to
run it. That's the big thing to me,"
Schiano said, shrugging off a ques-
tion about his desire to offensively
mold the Bucs into in a tough, phys-
ical unit that thrives on a solid
rushing attack.
"As you look back, would we like
to change a few, Mike and I? Sure,
we'd like to a change a few" calls,
Schiano said. "We were all out of
sync. We were trying to get it
calmed down and going and just
never really got it. When that hap-
pens, you look internally and say
we just never got it flowing. But
then as a head coach, you've got to
look at the other side and say they
had something to do with that."
Freeman, who's completed just
over 51 percent of his passes for 491
yards, four TDs and three intercep-
tions, said it's too soon to draw any
conclusions about the third offen-
sive system he's had to learn since

entering the NFL in 2009.
"It's still early in the season. We
still have a lot of our offense that
we've yet to display on Sundays,"
Freeman said.
"I feel we're in a good place now.
Sometimes you lose a game, some-
times you lose a couple games," the
24-year-old quarterback added.
"But I feel like our team mentally
is where we need to be. We're push-
ing forward ... excited about having
another opportunity to go out and
try to find a way to win."
The Redskins certainly haven't
tried to restrict Griffin, who's com-
pleted 67.4 percent of his passes for
747 yards, four touchdowns and
one interception.
The rookie also has rushed for
209 yards more than any quar-
terback and a league-leading
three TDs on the ground while tak-
ing a physical beating. That has
prompted coach Mike Shanahan to
ask his young star to take some pre-
cautions on the field.

talks run

for office
Associated Press

Schwarzenegger says his
wife, Maria Shriver, was
told to "snap out of it" by
her mother for her attempts
to persuade him against
running for California
governor in 2003, a con-
versation that ultimately
opened the door to his
successful candidacy
Eunice Kennedy Shriver
told her daughter that her
husband would be "angry
for the rest of his life" if
she stopped his ambitions,
Schwarzenegger writes in
his new autobiography,
"Total Recall: My Unbe-
lievably True Life Story"
Schwarzenegger has
often said Maria's mother
and her father, Sargent
Shriver, were essential to
his eventual decision to
seek public office, and the
most "extraordinary human
beings I've ever met." But
he also writes in the book
that he often teased his
wife that the close-knit
Democratic Kennedy clan
was "like a bunch of clones"
because there was such
conformity among them.
A spokesman for Maria
Shriver, Matthew DiGiro-
lamo, declined to com-
ment on the contents of
the book.
"Total Recall" will offi-
cially be published next
week The Associated Press
purchased an early copy
Schwarzenegger also
writes he had a "hot affair"
with actress Brigitte Nielsen
at a time he and Maria
Shriver were dating and
already living together
Schwarzenegger and
Nielsen co-starred in the
1985 film "Red Sonja."
Nielsen wrote in a memoir
published last year that
she and Schwarzenegger
had an "outrageous affair"
while making the movie.
The book is part of an
effort by the onetime "Mr
Universe" to rebrand him-
self after leaving office
with a mixed record and
subsequent embarrassing
revelations about a fling
he had with the
family's housekeeper
Schwarzenegger, who fa-
thered a son with the
housekeeper, says he also
let the boy down.
Schwarzenegger, 65,
said he avoided telling his
wife for years about the
boy, who is now a teenager,
even when Shriver asked
him, partly because of his
longtime penchant for se-
crecy, and his fear that the
news would become pub-
lic and undermine his po-
litical career
In an interview with "60
Minutes" scheduled to air
Sunday, Schwarzenegger
said having sex with his
housekeeper was "the stu-
pidest thing" he ever did
to Shriver and caused
great pain to her and their
four children.
"I think it was the stu-
pidest thing I've done in
the whole relationship. It
was terrible. I inflicted
tremendous pain on Maria
and unbelievable pain on
the kids," he told the show.
Shriver filed for divorce
in July

All-American reunion

Rockwell kids gather to share their memories of the artist

Associated Press

Don Trachte's cowlick has
been tamed. Mary Hall is
no longer a towhead.
Butch Corbett is still thin, but not
the beanpole he once was. And
Tom Paquin's carrot top is thinner
and grayer
Twenty or so people who were
children when they posed in the
1940s and '50s for their neighbor
Norman Rockwell in the Vermont
town of Arlington reunited there
Saturday to share their memories
of the great American artist who
once lived in their midst.
Rockwell captured scenes of
everyday life in his paintings and
illustrations for covers of the
Saturday Evening Post, for the
Boy Scouts and for its publication
Boys' Life, art now considered the
very definition of Americana. He
would pay his neighbors $5 a pop
to appear in Hallmark cards, in
calendars and on magazine covers
that ended up gracing the coffee
tables and littering the tree
houses of millions of magazine
readers young and old.
"The Saturday Evening Post
came out weekly, and we couldn't
wait to get it to see what was on the
cover," said Hall, who posed for
Rockwell four times. "You could
always recognize who it was."
She appeared as a blond girl
wrapped in a quilt and being carried
out of a flood by a Boy Scout in an
image that became a cover of Boys'
Life, and as a teenager in a skirt,
white blouse, bobby socks and
loafers on a Post cover from 1948. It
was called "Christmas Homecom-
ing" and showed people welcoming
home a young man who's carrying
a suitcase full of dirty laundry
An estimated 300 people from
the area modeled for Rockwell
during his 14 years in the southern
Vermont town. Of the 70 or so still
living, the oldest is 93 (he couldn't
make it to the reunion). Many still
live in and around Arlington.
Among the models was Mary
Whalen, who posed for the popu-
lar image of a rugged-looking
school girl with braids and a black
eye, waiting outside a principal's
The former models have gotten
together before, but this weekend
is special. They have been invited
to view a new gallery of Rockwell
prints and memorabilia that is
taking the place of a recently closed
Rockwell museum. The new own-
ers are treating them to a turkey
lunch in honor of Rockwell's fa-
mous painting of an excited family
gathered for Thanksgiving dinner

Birthday In the year ahead, a new awareness of your
needs will help you strike a better balance in your personal
affairs. This fresh enlightenment will encourage you to de-
vote more time to those things in your life that really matter.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If you place more importance
on settling an old grudge, you'll waste valuable time that
you could have used to do something fun or meaningful. It'll
be your own doing and your loss.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Unfortunately, you might not
be as eager to share with others as they are with you.
Sadly, this attitude will damage your reputation in ways that
you're unprepared to handle.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) There are two sides to
every coin, so why spend all your time dwelling on the neg-
ative aspects? All it will bring is an investment in failure.

"I think it's important that the
models keep the tradition of the
image that Vermont, Arlington in
particular, was important in Nor-
man Rockwell's biography That
while he lived in Arlington he did
his best work, probably ... and his
local models were Arlington peo-
ple," said James "Buddy" Edger-
ton, 82, who lived next door to
Rockwell, his wife and three sons
and modeled for him at least a
dozen times.
Rockwell was a full-fledged
member of the town, attending
school basketball games and
square dances, and had a great
sense of humor, his neighbors re-
call. But as one of America's fore-
most artists, he could be as
precise as any high-fashion
He would first have the models
photographed and then would
sketch a drawing. Sometimes the
session in his studio took minutes,
sometimes several hours. He al-
ways had a pipe in his mouth, and
he joked around with the kids to
make them comfortable.
"Rockwell had these images in
his head, and he wanted you to
smile or be wide-eyed in a certain
way You have to be a little actor,
you see, and I probably was a lit-
tle embarrassed," said Trachte,
who was 5 or 6 when he posed for
a painting of a little boy and girl
in pajamas, holding hands and
peering up at Santa Claus. Years
later, Trachte and his brother
found a Rockwell hidden in a wall
at his parents' house; "Breaking
Home Ties" sold at auction in
2006 for $15.4 million.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Don't be so self-involved
that you forget to acknowledge those who have helped you
get where you want to go.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -You may have a knack for
managing people, but how you go about it might not be as
admirable as you think. Be careful to avoid using tactics
that could be resented.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) -A situation that pits a loved
one against another might occur, calling for you to make a
choice as to who is right. If it's not a serious issue, let your
heart make the decision.
Aries (March 21-April 19) Keep the faith, because
something of great importance to your well-being won't be
a piece of cake to handle. But it won't be as ominous or
troublesome as you think, either.

Rockwell knew just what he
wanted, instructing the children
to sit or stand in certain positions
with particular expressions and to
wear certain clothing, often pro-
viding Scout uniforms, or in one
case, the velvet outfit that Hall
wore for the cover of an edition of
the book "Little Lord Fauntleroy"
"I find his detail just amazing,"
said Hall, whose father was a real
estate agent who sold Rockwell
his first and second home in town.
She noted that Rockwell man-
aged to paint the small piece of
tape around her leg from a
sprained ankle that appeared
above her bobby sock: "He didn't
miss the details."
Edgerton who went on to
write the memoir "The Unknown
Rockwell: A Portrait of Two Amer-
ican Families," about a farm boy
growing up next door to the Rock-
wells modeled for his neighbor
mostly as a Scout, with his image
published in four calendars.
The last time he modeled was
in 1964, after Rockwell had moved
about 65 miles away to Stock-
bridge, Mass., now home to the
Norman Rockwell Museum.
Edgerton appeared as a Scout-
master with his son, then 9, in a
painting called "Growth of a
Leader," showing four profiles of
a Scout progressing from a child
to an adult with a graying side-
burn much like Edgerton has
"He was a wonderful guy,"
Edgerton said. "He made you feel
you were the most important per-
son in the world when you were
doing it."

Taurus (April 20-May 20) Now's the time to take control
over your financial affairs. Regardless of how bad things
look, you can turn it around. Use plenty of elbow grease.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) Just to make a point, you
may opt to do things the hard way and cause more trouble
for yourself than need be. Quit being so stubborn.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) Innately, you are a practical
and logical person, but when you allow your emotions to
take control, all reason flies out the window.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Don't be one of those people who
lets personal gain take precedence over the nobler instincts.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Important goals may be un-
achievable, but not necessarily owing to obstacles or influ-
ences over which you have no control. It'll be because you
handle things in a clumsy manner.

Democrats are hoping President Barack Obama's coattails will still be long enough to help carry them to victory in a number of close races
for state office. Republicans, meanwhile, hope they're competing in a more comfortable environment than the one that walloped them up
and down the ballot four years ago. : Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney speaks May 16 in St. Petersburg, Fla. Obama
speaks July 24 at a fundraising event at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Ore.

Election by association a factor in some U.S. Senate and House races

Associated Press
WASHINGTON If Rep. Connie Mack
scores an upset over Democratic Sen. Bill
Nelson in Florida's Senate race, he'll prob-
ably owe Mitt Romney a thank you. Should
former Gov Tim Kaine hold off former Sen.
George Allen in the Senate contest in Vir-
ginia, President Barack Obama may deserve
a share of credit.
The fates of Obama and Romney in No-
vember are likely to impact more than the
White House. They will help shape a num-
ber of key Senate and House races. The
prospect of presidential coattails or the
opposite, a drag is factoring into the way
races down the ballot are being run, espe-
cially in close contests.
"There's obviously a down-ballot impact
from the performance of the top of the
ticket," said Sen. John Thune, the No. 3 Re-
publican in the Senate. So Senate Republi-
cans are pulling for Romney and doing all
they can to help him, Thune said. Of Rom-
ney, he added: "We need him to do well."
Democrats feel the same about the top of
their ticket. Leaders in the Senate, includ-
ing Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York and
Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada,
said Democratic Senate candidates were
certain to benefit from a stronger Obama
performance in November They said they'd
also benefit if Romney stumbles.
"One of the reasons our Senate numbers
have gone up in the last few weeks is distaste
for Romney," Schumer said last week.
The impact and potential of coattails is less
clear in the House, though both parties are
using the stances of Obama and Romney as
political cudgels, evidence the presidential
race is having at least a tangential effect
Romney's struggle to overcome his re-
marks at a meeting with donors offered an
early demonstration of how the top of the
ticket can quickly shake other races.
His comment, secretly recorded at a
Florida fundraiser in May, that 47 percent of
Americans think they are "victims" entitled

can Senate candidates scrambling. In Mas-

There are, after all, a lot of Republicans in

Are they the moochers Romney de-
scribed? The very question opened up a
round of sniping that reached from vulnera-
ble Republican Senate candidates all the
way to Romney's wife, Ann.

U.S. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., speaks during a rally
for Presdient Obama on Sept. 8 in Seminole.
"I disagree with Governor Romney's in-
sinuation," GOP Senate candidate Linda
McMahon said in Connecticut.
"That's not the way I view the world," said

Citizens insurance works to tighten belt

Special to the Chronicle
Citizens Property Insurance
takes its fiscal responsibili-
ties to our policyholders and
all Floridians very seriously We are
especially sensitive to the concerns
expressed in recent articles regard-
ing executive expenses and inter-
national travel costs. Although
Citizens' travel expenses are 0.17
percent of our overall operating
budget, I saw the questions raised
as an opportunity to take a closer
look at our expense procedures and
identify ways Citizens can tighten
its belt.
Recently, I announced revised
travel expense guidelines to the Cit-


izens board. These more rigorous
standards apply to all employees,
regardless of title. They define ac-
ceptable meal and hotel expenses
for domestic and international
travel and were effective
Tightened travel guidelines are
only one way Citizens can achieve
efficiency in our business opera-
tions. Cost savings also are achieved
by purchasing reinsurance in the
international market to ensure
claims payments and protect
Florida policyholders from the risk
of assessments in the event of a
storm. Because reinsurers are
based abroad, international travel

is a necessary part of negotiating
and purchasing reinsurance.
As a government entity operating
in an international industry, Citi-
zens walks a line between fiscal
stringency and conducting business
internationally on behalf of all
Floridians. International travel is
expensive, but the return on invest-
ment for these trips is compelling.
We evaluate the value of all trips
to ensure the benefits to our policy-
holders will be worth the invest-
ment. Trips to transfer catastrophic
risk taken by Citizens CFO, and
highlighted in the Citrus County
Chronicle, ultimately saved an esti-
mated $47 million on the cost of

reinsurance and reduced potential
assessments for all Florida policy-
holders by $1.2 billion.
At Citizens, we are committed to
efficiencies in everything we do,
whether in Tallahassee or interna-
tionally Tightening our travel
guidelines is just one way we will
strengthen our ability to carry out
our mission on behalf of Floridians.
I will continue to search for addi-
tional ways to increase Citizens' ef-
ficiency and reduce spending to
benefit our policyholders and the
people of Florida.

It's silly




the phone

During election sea-
son, a big part of
my job seems to be
answering the telephone
and saying: "That's not
The silly season of elec-
tions again proves to me
that politics and truth
have very little in com-
mon. But don't be discour-
aged, it's still the best and
longest-running experi-
ment in self determina-
tion that our species has
ever toyed with.
Some advice for voters:
Don't answer your tele-
phone until after the No-
vember elections.
The hottest ploy of the
politicians this election
season has moved from
the anonymous direct-
mail attacks to recorded
telephone calls that are
false and misleading. At
least these things are
pretty consistent in that
they avoid the facts.
Nancy Argenziano, the
candidate without a polit-
ical party, seems to be the
victim of most of the tele-
phone attacks so far, and
that should not be a sur-
prise. Argenziano is run-
ning for the Florida
House of Representatives
against incumbent Jim-
mie T Smith.
Argenziano once served
as our representative,
state senator and Public
Service Commission
member all before her
well-publicized falling-out
with the state Republican
Party. Now she is running
as an Independent, and
the powerful Republican
Party leaders don't want
to welcome her back to
Tallahassee. So hundreds
of thousands of dollars are
being spent by state spe-
cial interests to attack and
misrepresent what she
has done during her pub-
lic life.
The funny thing is it's
not necessary
There is a pretty big dif-
ference between where
incumbent Jimmie Smith
falls on the real issues fac-
ing Florida and the posi-
tions of Nancy
The same is really true
on the national level -
there is a huge difference
between where President
Obama stands on the is-
sues compared to GOP
challenger Mitt Romney.
The fringes of both politi-
cal parties want to make
nonsense the tone of the
campaign when what we
really need to know is how
the candidates will revive
the economy, grow more
jobs, reduce federal
spending and deal with
health care.
We still have people
talking about where Pres-
ident Obama was born as
opposed to how the candi-
dates will keep us from
stumbling into a nuclear
war with Iran.
There are real differ-
ences in how the candi-
dates want to approach
the issues. That's what
should help us decide
who we support in both

Memories in the heart, not in a chunk of steel

I don't remember
when I first began
to read a daily
newspaper, but it was
before I started to
school. I learned to
read by reading The
Tampa Tribune, not by
reading the "Alice and
Jerry" primary school
series of books. I read Fred B
those, too, but the A SI
newspaper was really OF I
what got it done.
I still read the newspaper, every
day I used to read two, but since
I've retired, I only read one the
Citrus County Chronicle. I previ-
ously read a national newspaper
as well to help me along in my
real-world job, but, no more.
Yep. The Chronicle gives me
everything I need, but I must con-


fess, I don't always
read it all.
I read what I want to,
what I think is mean-
ingful to me. I read
three columnists from
start to finish on a reg-
ular basis Nancy
Kennedy, Gerry Mulli-
gan and me. I read
rannen Nancy and Gerry be-
-ICE cause I know I will be
IFE better for doing so; and,
I read me to see if what
I've written sounds as good as I'd
hoped it would when I wrote it
As to the other columnists, I
usually start by reading the last
paragraph. If I find that interest-
ing, I will read the first paragraph
and, then if I'm hooked, I'll finish
I read the headlines, both news

and sports, then I read all of what-
ever articles look interesting. I
read Sound Off; I read four comic
strips Arlo and Janice, Frank
and Ernest, The Grizzwells and
Beetle Bailey; and I read the want
ads, not all of 'em, but a select few.
Stick with me, I'm coming to a
I always read the Classic Cars
for sale ads; and I'm always look-
ing for a specific make and model.
I few days ago, I saw an ad for
the sale of a 1955 Chevrolet Bel
Air that's not what I'm looking
for, and it's a good thing. The vehi-
cle had been fully restored and
the owner wanted $35,000 for it.
Thirty-five thousand dollars for a
car that sold new for something
less than $2,500. Now, will anyone
pay $35,000 for such a vehicle?
Maybe. Probably But, at least in

my opinion, it will have to be
someone who had a love affair
with a 1955 Bel Air not a love af-
fair in a 1955 Bel Air, but a love af-
fair with a 1955 Bel Air.
No, I'm looking for a red 1962
Ford Fairlane 500 Sports Coupe
with white leather interior and
bucket seats. Why? Because I did
indeed have a love affair with one.
It was my first car; I bought it sec-
ond hand for $1,800 in 1964, but as
far as I was concerned, it was the
most beautiful, most perfect car
that had ever been made. I loved it!
Oh, and yes, please don't make
more out of this than there is, but
I also had a love affair in my 1962
Fairlane 500. There's nothing R-
rated here, but it was the car I had
when I met and began dating my
Cheryl; it was the car we drove
away in together after our

wedding to begin our honeymoon
and at the time it was decorated
with white shoe polish graffiti that
screamed "Just Married!" as well
as whispering a few double
entendres; and it was the car we
drove home from the hospital
after our firstborn, Beth, arrived.
Now, with all of that said, here's
the $64,000 question, or at least
the $35,000 question: Would I pay
such a price for my own special

my heart, not in a chunk of steel

Respect for Dawsy
There is a saying that all politics really
comes down to the local level. I vote for
the person who I believe in regardless of
political party affiliation. I read, I listen,
and I observe. As a sixth-generation Citrus
County native, I am very concerned about
what happens in this place I call home.
I have watched as the Citrus County
Sheriff's Office has become one of the ab-
solute best in the entire state. I am proud
of the professionalism that has been
brought to this department over the years
under Jeff Dawsy
I have known Jeff for years now, not
only as sheriff, but as a friend. As a sheriff,
I have watched his department upgrade in
every area of law enforcement. As a
friend, I know his heartfelt concern for
the welfare of the people of this county
I talked with Jeff and many deputies
during the Jessica Lunsford tragedy and
saw how their lives were drastically af-
fected and changed. They were not just a
"department" of law enforcement, they
were caring individuals who struggled
with the difficult parts of their job.
I have the highest regard for law en-
forcement in Citrus County and know that
Jeff will continue to lead and do it with
human concern.

I can even quote statistics that are public
information that go into detail about how
financially responsible the sheriff's office
is and that Citrus County has been well
below state average per capital on public
safety for years. I could also boast about
how Jeff has made sure that sheriff's of-
fice personnel are trained to standards to
ensure public safety and they have the
equipment and operating procedures in
place to perform the jobs they have been
charged with. I can also tell you about his
qualifications, because his educational ac-
complishments and 25 years experience
in law enforcement prove that he is highly
qualified for the position of sheriff.
But from a personal perspective and
from someone who has raised children
and continues to raise a teenager in this
county, is watching grandchildren being
raised here and is a business person in
this community, the bottom line is Jeff
Dawsy cares about Citrus County
As a teenager he moved here, graduat-
ing from Crystal River High; he has raised
two children here, his daughter Stacey,
now married and mom to Jeff's grandson,
Nathan; and his son Brian, who is now
with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Of-
fice; and he is still raising Destin, who is a
junior at Crystal River High School. And
he is the husband to locally raised Gail,
whom I know he adores.
His family and friends know that they
can always count on Jeff; he is always
there for support and words of encourage-

Dawsy the right man
Sheriff Dawsy is the right man for the
job. He has an undeniable resolve to pro-
vide the citizens of Citrus County the qual-
ity of life, and the peace of mind, that they
live in (one of the) safest counties in the
state of Florida with populations over
100,000. I can list many reasons this is so,
but I would like to expand on one issue,
that of child safety
Having worked with Sheriff Dawsy for 30
years, I can attest to his absolute passion to
make our county, state and nation a safer
place for our kids. The road to child safety
begins with a twice nationally recognized
School Resource Officer program that
helps keep our children safe in school,
teaches basic safety and life issues, and de-
velops partnerships between kids and cops.
Second, an Internet Crimes Against
Children Unit that proactively targets and
arrests those who are actively stalking our
Third, a Child Protective Investigations
Unit that has set the standard statewide
for investigations into child neglect and
abuse charges.
Fourth, a Sexual Offender/Predator
Unit that tracks, and makes accountable,
the more than 200 sexual offenders who
live in our county
Fifth, a phenomenal Child Advocacy
Center, Jessie's Place, which is a service
center dedicated to helping children who
have experienced abuse or neglect.
Sixth, still in the developmental stage, is
Safety Town, a place to teach kids about
fire and bicycle safety
Sheriff Dawsy is not one to rest on his
accomplishments; he is forever striving to
make the quality of life in Citrus County
even better. I have absolutely no doubt
that under Sheriff Dawsy's leadership, the
next four years will bring the citizens of
Citrus County a sheriff's office that is sec-
ond to none, that is responsive to the citi-
zens, and is of the highest quality of

Referee fiasco highlights

disdain for American workers

With our nation in the middle of a
contentious presidential cam-
paign and our economy stuck in
the doldrums, what is the sudden piece of
good news that has Americans cheering?
A big drop in gas prices? Decreased un-
employment? Teamwork in Congress?
Wrong! The National Football
League's lockout of referees is
That's right. The immense
suffering of overpaid profes-
sional football players and NFL
fans has come to an end.
Without being asked, White
House Press Secretary Jay Car-
ney spoke for President Obama
- and the rest of the country-
in welcoming news of a deal be- Steve K
tween the NFL and the refer- FLOI
ees' union. VOI
"The president's very
pleased that the two sides have
come together," Carney said. "It's a great
day for America."
For the entire preseason and three
weeks of the regular season, we've put up
with replacement referees who failed to
live up to snuff and caused lovers of the
game to question the NFEs integrity
Now it's over, but not because the NFL
was brought to its knees at the negotiating
table. Rather, because of a blown call at
the end of Monday night's game that cost
the Green Bay Packers a win.
Fans and players were outraged. The
outcry was immense, marathon negotiat-
ing sessions commenced and a settlement
was announced Wednesday at 11:30 p.m. It
came none too soon right before Thurs-
day night's Browns-Ravens matchup in
With the help of two federal mediators,
the league and the NFL Referees Associ-
ation agreed to an eight-year labor pact
that still must be ratified by the union's 121
members, who work on a part-time basis
officiating games.
Carney said the focus can now return to
the games, not the officiating. But the real

issue that caused the lockout -job secu-
rity and benefits for part-time referees -
was obviously lost on the White House and
a jubilant America.
The defeat of the NFL lockout was a vic-
tory not just for the referees, but for Amer-
ican workers who are under serious attack
in a new, part-time economy
where employers force workers
to work part-time hours for less
pay and no retirement or health
The big dispute was over pen-
sion and retirement benefits for
officials who are called part-
time, but work long hours on
top of regular jobs.
In the end, the referees' an-
irlander nual salaries will increase from
RIDA $149,000 in 2011 to $173,000 in
CES 2013, and $205,000 by 2019. A dis-
puted defined-benefit pension
plan will remain in place for
current officials through the 2016 season or
until they earn 20 years of service. Then,
the defined-benefit plan will be frozen.
The NFL also will have the option, at
the beginning of the 2013 season, to hire
referees on a full-time basis, like other
While most sports commentators
lamented the length of the lockout, these
lockouts are now too common in profes-
sional sports. The National Hockey
League is in Day 5 of a player lockout by
wealthy franchise owners, a stoppage that
will ultimately hurt the sport and its 2012-
2013 season.
So while Americans can be happy that
"real" football is back, they should con-
sider whether penalty flags should be
thrown not only against players on the
field, but against franchise owners who
exemplify the 21st Century-stereotype of
the rich, grubby American employer.

the future holds Consume
for the large retail nee
center located on
the north side of the city.
The mall has gone through
some tough times over the last
five years as the nation's econ-
omy went reeling through the
biggest downturn in 70 years.
The loss of the Sears depart-
ment store earlier this year
was a kick in the shin for those
interested in the future of the
429,000-square-foot shopping
But the new owners of the
mall have a much lower debt
on the facility and that gives
them the opportunity to offer
lease rates more in line with
other retail operations in our
Consumers need to pay at-
tention to Ms. Bresnahan's
quote, because it goes to the
heart of improving shopping
options at the mall and at other
retail centers in Citrus County.
The owners of retail centers
make their decisions to invest
in a community based on the
spending patterns of the com-
munity they serve.
Investors don't spend mil-
lions of dollars to launch new
locations in markets unless
they are pretty darned sure
they will be successful. And for
those in the retail business,
success is measured at the
cash register.
Citrus County does not have
the shopping options Tampa
has because we don't have the
population and spending pat-

In today's paper (Sept. 12) per-
taining to the cats, that Animal
Control has too many of.
Now they're going to lower
the price. I say get the
people's name, microchip
those cats and if they put
them out like they all do-
they put them to the street

out why they let them out CALI

erwise than that, they're
going to be loaded now,

you're going to be loaded then.
There's no sense in all this killing
for these people who have cats and
have cats. They're so cute, but then
they put them out. I know for a fact;
I have two feral cats and I am tak-
ing care of them. Please microchip
them. You know what? That's the
only way. I found a dog three weeks
ago that had just been adopted
from the pound not even two hours
and he was on the street and I
found him. What good is that?



terns to support all of those op-
tions. We do have consumer
spending that some retailers
find exciting. Look at the re-
cent expansion of Wal-Mart,
Publix and the competing dol-
lar stores.

There is a
egg dilemma

tential shopping

mine what will
work here and what won't.
Don't expect to see a Nord-
strom's coming to Citrus
County any time soon. But Tar-
get, Kohl's, and sporting good
stores can all find a location
and excel.
Ms. Bresnahan's quote is a
reminder to consumers that
they make the ultimate deci-
sion about which stores come
and survive in our small mar-
ket. When you are in a big city
like Tampa the population is
large enough to support multi-
ple and competitive shopping
In Citrus County consumers
must make the decision to sup-
port local businesses. If you go
to Orlando and drop $500
Christmas shopping, that's
$500 you didn't spend in your
own community. And, con-
sumers, those $500 shopping
sprees make a difference.
Ms. Bresnahan's challenge is
real. If consumers shop at the
mall, more stores will open.
The same retail therapy will
work throughout the county.
The mall is a big employer; it
pays a lot of property and sales
taxes; and it plays an important
social/cultural role in our com-
munity. It needs our support.
The businesses throughout
our community need your
Retail growth is a gradual

Presidency: It's debatable

he spectacles _
we persist in
dignifying as
presidential "debates"
-two-minute regurgi-
tations of rehearsed ,
responses often /
subtract from the na-
tion's understanding.
But beginning this
Wednesday, these less- Georg
than-Lincoln-Douglas OTI
episodes might be edi-
fying if the candidates VOlI
can be inveigled into
plowing fresh ground.
Concerning the Judiciary
Although the average age of the
Supreme Court justices (66) is
younger than that of the Rolling
Stones (68), three justices will be
in their 80s before the next pres-
idential term ends, so the next
president probably can solidify
today's conservative majority or
create a liberal majority.
For Mitt Romney: Many con-
servatives advocate "judicial re-
straint" They denounce "judicial
activism" and define it as not
properly deferring to decisions
by government's majoritarian
branches. Other conservatives
praise "judicial engagement"
and define it as actively defend-
ing liberty against overbearing
majorities. Do you favor "re-
straint" or "engagement"? Do you
reject the Kelo decision, in which
the Supreme Court deferred to
government's desire to seize pri-
vate property and give it to
wealthier private interests who
would pay higher taxes?
For Barack Obama: You de-
plore the court's Citizens United
decision. What is your constitu-
tional basis for rejecting the de-
cision's principle that Americans
do not forfeit their First Amend-
ment rights when they come to-
gether in corporate entities
(mostly nonprofit advocacy cor-
porations such as the Sierra
Club) to speak collectively? You
say you would "seriously con-
sider" amending the First
Amendment to empower Con-
gress to regulate political speech.
Explain why you choose to make
the Bill of Rights less protective.

For Romney: The
Republican platform
..... endorses using "what-
ever legislative
method is most feasi-
ble" to ban flag dese-
cration. Can you
distinguish this from
the anti-blasphemy
laws in some Islamic
e Will countries? Should we
criminalize expressive
IER acts that offend?
DES Concerning Fobreign
For both: On Oct. 7, we begin
the 12th year of the war in
Afghanistan and 51 recent NATO
fatalities have been at the hands
of our supposed Afghan allies,
causing U.S. commanders to in-
definitely suspend many joint op-
erations. Why are we staying
there 27 more months?
For Romney: You envision
"countervailing duties" to punish
China for manipulating the value
of its currency Do the "quantita-
tive easings" by Ben Bernanke's
Federal Reserve, which vastly
expanded the money supply, con-
stitute currency manipulation?
Would duties increasing the
prices Americans pay for Chi-
nese imports violate your vow to
not raise taxes?
For Obama: Your campaign
boasts about increasing the num-
ber of unfair-trade charges
against China. How would Amer-
icans' welfare be enhanced by
raising the prices they pay for
consumer goods and production
materials from China?
For both: You are correct that
China subsidizes politically con-
nected businesses. Does not our
Export-Import Bank do this?
For Obama: Are GM and
Chrysler subsidized? Are they
politically connected businesses?
Concerning Domestic Policy
For Obama: Your opponent pro-
poses cutting income tax rates 20
percent and implies paying for
this partly by means testing some
deductions (e.g., mortgage interest
payments and charitable giving).
Do you oppose his plan for making
the income tax more progressive?
For Romney: You say "redistri-



Vote no on 8
The title of Amendment 8,
"Religious Freedom," is inten-
tionally misleading. This change
deletes current provision in the
state constitution that prohibits
taxpayer funding of religious in-
stitutions, and would allow the
state to use public money to fund
religious institutions and
schools. This would mean that
public schools, which are al-
ready financially stressed, would
get less money, that students
who go to private schools would
not always be taught by certified
teachers, and that many people
would be supporting a religion
in which they do not believe.
Amendment 1 of the U.S. Con-
stitution specifically prohibits a
law such as this proposed
change: "Congress shall make no
law respecting an establishment
of religion," and Amendment 14
prohibits any state from passing
a law that is against the Consti-
tution: "No State shall make or
enforce any law which shall

bution" has "never been a char-
acteristic of America." You're
kidding, right? Is not redistribu-
tion one purpose of progressive
taxation? Is not most of what gov-
ernment does from agriculture
subsidies to subsidized student
loans to entitlements the re-
distribution of wealth from one
cohort or region to another?
For Obama: You recently said
changing Washington "from the
outside" is "how some of our
biggest accomplishments like
health care got done mobiliz-
ing the American people." You're
kidding, right? A majority of the
American people never sup-
ported passage of Obamacare.
Did you not secure passage by
deals with Big Pharma and other
inside Washington players?
For both: Do you agree that a fi-
nancial institution that is too big
to fail is too big to exist? If not,
why not? The biggest banks
emerged from the Great Reces-
sion bigger At the end of 2011, the
five biggest (JPMorgan, Bank of

is 56 percent of the 2011 GDP Why
should they not be broken up?

County bus pros, cons
I would like to commend the dispatchers and
drivers who work for the Citrus County bus
service. They are very courteous and depend-
able. It is a blessing for those who do not drive,
and the disabled.
I take the bus regularly, but notice there are
never more than three people on the bus. Many
times I am the only rider
Reservations must be made three days in ad-
vance by noon. The time pickups are scheduled
sometimes makes doctors appointments a
Food shopping poses another problem be-
cause return trips are sometimes lengthy,
which causes the shoppers to remain in the
stores until the bus arrives or have their per-
ishables melt

The drivers must drop off people according
to the schedule, even when they are close by
the riders' homes. Drivers must go from one di-
rection to another, making a return trip longer
It seems with the high cost of gasoline, the
mileage and wear and tear on the buses, sched-
uling more passengers for shoppers on certain
days and others for doctors appointment or
other destinations would be a simple, logical
I'm sure other passengers would agree.

Democrats, meanwhile,
are left to defend Obama on
broader issues his stew-
ardship of the slowly recov-
ering economy, the
stubbornly high 8.1 percent
unemployment rate, his
health care overhaul that
struck even some in his own
party as a too-big govern-
ment power grab.
That's easier for some than
others. In Wisconsin, Demo-
cratic Rep. Tammy Baldwin
has hugged Obama tightly,
appearing before him at a
campaign rally Saturday,
practically gushing.
"This is such an exciting
end to such an exciting week

I never thought I'd be able to
say that I would open for the
president of the United
States," Baldwin said.
In the crucial Senate bat-
tleground of Montana,
though, a recent survey of the
state from Mason Dixon
polling showed Democratic
Sen. Jon Tester down by 3
percentage points, 45 per-
cent to 48 percent, to Repub-
lican Rep. Denny Rehberg.
Obama trails Romney in the
same state poll by 9 percent-
age points, and the poll
shows Montanans are di-
vided on more partisan lines
than 2006, when Tester won
his seat
As a result, Tester has
worked hard to put distance
between himself and Obama.
In one TV ad airing during
the summer, Tester bragged

he "took on the Obama ad-
ministration" and noted his
votes against the auto and
Wall Street bailouts, which
Obama supported, and his
support for the Keystone XL
oil pipeline, which Obama
has opposed.
If either Obama or Rom-
ney has coattails, it's most
likely to show up in the race
for the Senate. Republicans
need to net four seats to take
control of the chamber The
GOP has the potential to pick
up four seats in states that
Obama and Romney are
fiercely contesting: Virginia,
Ohio, Florida and Wisconsin.
Republicans must also hold
onto a Senate seat in Ne-
vada, another presidential
swing state.
Some potential for coat-
tails shows up in polling.

In Virginia, Kaine's num-
bers have tracked closely
with Obama's polling in the
state. Last week, a poll re-
leased by The Washington
Post had Obama up over
Romney in Virginia by about
8 percentage points and
Kaine over Allen by a similar
margin. Another Virginia
poll, from Fox News, had
Obama up 7 points and
Kaine up just 4 points.
In Wisconsin, two recent
polls, one from Quinnipiac
University and The New
York Times and the other
from NBC News, The Wall
Street Journal and Marist
University, showed Obama
with leads of 6 and 5 per-
centage points, respectively
Those polls also showed
Baldwin improving her posi-
tion against Thompson.

Retiring GOP Sen. Jon Kyl
of Arizona said he expected
the presidential contest to
factor into a handful of
But, as Kyl noted, several
key Senate battlegrounds are
less likely to feel the impact
of the presidential race.
Romney is expected to romp
in North Dakota and Mon-
tana, but both states' Senate
races are close. On the other
side, Obama should sweep
Massachusetts, even as War-
ren and Brown go to the wire
in a tight race.
In House races, the con-
nection to the top of the
ticket is inescapable Re-
publican vice presidential
candidate Paul Ryan is a
Wisconsin congressman. For
weeks, Democrats have
seized on Ryan's budget

plan in an effort to tie Re-
publican candidates to
changes to Medicare that
could prove unpopular, es-
pecially with seniors.
For example, in a close
upstate New York contest,
vulnerable Democratic Rep.
Kathy Hochul has sought to
tie Ryan's budget to her op-
ponent, Republican Chris
Collins, to the GOP-backed
budget. Collins has been
forced to publicly withhold
support for the Ryan plan.
Republicans, in turn, have
tied Democrats to Obama
and specifically the presi-
dent's health care law, un-
popular with many voters.
The National Republican
Congressional Committee
recently released eight ads
in key districts focused on
the health care issue.

Dealership to honor veterans

Eagle Buick GMCplans event Saturday

Staff Writer
Saturday, Oct 6, will be a special
day at Eagle Buick GMC.
The well-known Homosassa busi-
ness is holding the grand reopening
of its new dealership and the dedi-
cation of a memorial paying tribute
to the life of Rob Phillips.
Eagle Buick GMC recently com-
pleted an extensive $1.5 million
renovation as part of GMC's corpo-
rate effort to upgrade and stan-
dardize its dealers.
The facility has a complete fresh
look with a variety of new amenities
for customers. It now has a covered
area out front, contemporary show-
room furnishings, a much larger
service area and even Wi-Fi in the
service area waiting room.
Though in keeping with its his-
tory, she said, the famous muscle-
man statue out front remains.
But there is one area not quite
finished yet. The memorial to Rob
Phillips is still under construction.
The dealership's late owner died in
a boating accident Aug. 21, 2011.

Penny Hughes, Eagle's customer
relations manager, explained the
project's details. The memorial will
be a large granite octagon anchor-
ing a 100-foot-tall flagpole at its cen-
Each branch of the military will
be honored by a plaque on a panel
of the octagon, with a special trib-
ute to the Marine Corps, in which
Phillips served. There will also be
a panel featuring an eagle. She said
the Homosassa dealership got its
name because the site was home to
some eagles, which were relocated
when the property was developed.
Hughes said the base of the mon-
ument goes 10 feet into the ground
to support the flagpole, which will
fly a 30-foot-by-60-foot American
"This is something Rob always
wanted to do," Hughes said. "It is
what he stood for; the Marine Corps
was a big part of him and many of
our customers are military
She said they are hoping local dig-
nitaries attend the dedication. The
Marine Corps will do a gun salute

Eagle Buick GMC will host its grand reopening and the dedication of the
Rob Phillips Memorial on Oct. 6. The dealership's late owner died in a boat-
ing accident Aug. 21, 2011.

and raise the American flag.
Representatives from GM and the
Citrus County Chamber of Com-
merce will cut the ribbon for the re-
opening of the dealership.

The grand reopening of Eagle
Buick GMC and the dedication of
the Rob Phillips Memorial are
scheduled for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sat-
urday, Oct 6.


Associated Press
Mary Morgan, a Nassau County information technology specialist, poses Sept. 17 with the telephones she is assessing as part of a county-
wide efficiency effort in Mineola, N.Y. Nassau County is currently shutting off hundreds of unused telephone lines and reviewing its stock of
telephones as part of a cost-cutting initiative.

Local governments throughout United States try to cut costs via efficiency

Associated Press
MINEOLA, N.Y In some places, it's as
simple as pulling the plug on thousands of
unused telephone lines or installing software
that automatically shuts off idle school com-
puters to save on electric bills. Other places
are doing such things as merging town fire
departments, combining 911 centers or out-
sourcing collection of parking fines.
Around the country, governments big and
small are embracing cooperation, consolida-
tion and efficiency to wring a few more dol-
lars out of the budget as the effects of the
Great Recession linger.
"What we're seeing is that many places are
really taking a look at doing more with less,"
said Steve Hamill, a former administrator in
Alameda County, Calif., and founder of the
U.S. Communities Government Purchasing
Alliance, which helps municipalities learn of
money-saving opportunities.
During the worst of the downturn, many
local governments resorted to layoffs and
other blunt means of cutting spending. Now,
with the economy still shaky, they are looking
in less obvious places for ways to save money
Earlier this year, Long Island's two coun-
ties and several townships announced antic-
ipated savings of more than $1 million
annually by joining forces to buy such things
as medical supplies for ambulances and
chemicals for wastewater treatment and
swimming pools.
"Joint purchasing is an example of where

we can do more with less by finding effi-
ciency," Suffolk County Executive Steve Bel-
lone said.
In neighboring Nassau County, officials are
in the midst of a review of unused telephones
and telephone lines in the wake of large staff
cutbacks. The county comptroller's office es-
timates as many as 3,000 phone lines could be
disconnected by the end of the year, saving
more than $535,000.
Idaho's Coeur d'Alene School District set
up a system to turn off all computer monitors
after five minutes of inactivity Computers
are put in standby mode after 90 minutes.
The district expects to save $300,000 over
three years, Hamill said.
An effort in Los Angeles County that in-
cludes disconnecting unused phones and
buying efficient light bulbs is expected to cut
costs by about $218 million annually
Last year, three cities in San Diego County
- El Cajon, La Mesa and Lemon Grove -
struck an agreement to combine their fire-
fighting, emergency medical treatment and
emergency planning services. They expect to
save a combined $560,000 annually. Fire re-
sponse times haven't suffered, according to
Heartland Fire and Rescue Fire Chief Mike
Three counties in New Jersey are each try-
ing to combine their local 911 call centers
under one roof. Something similar has al-
ready been done in Lincoln Park, Southgate
and Wyandotte, three cities in Michigan's
Wayne County.
In other places, discussions are under way

to consolidate school districts. And some mu-
nicipalities are outsourcing data processing
operations that manage such things as the
collection of property taxes and parking
fines, Hamill said.
"Officials are taking a look at what core
services are needed and that they need to be
involved with and what services someone
else can do," he said.
Police departments on Long Island and
elsewhere are employing high-tech sensors
in high-crime areas to alert officers to exact
locations when gunshots are fired.
"This allows departments to cut down on
the number of patrol cars that may be needed
to investigate these cases, which can save
money," Hamill said.
State governments also are striving to cut
costs by consolidating or reorganizing agen-
cies, according to Todd Haggerty, an analyst
for the Conference of State Legislatures.
Among them:
Connecticut placed nine state agencies
within a new Office of Government Account-
ability, resulting in a reduction of 23 positions
and a savings of $1.5 million in 2012 and a
projected $1.8 million in 2013.
Kansas estimates it will save $3 million
in 2012 by abolishing its Health Policy Au-
thority and shifting its responsibilities, in-
cluding the administration of Medicaid, to
the Department of Health and Environment
Missouri transferred the responsibilities
of the State Water Patrol to a division within
the State Highway Patrol; $3 million a year in
administrative cost savings are anticipated.

DEAR PR: First of all,
you could investigate a
PLUS loan, which is a par-
ents' loan for undergradu-
ate students. The good
thing is these loans are not
hard to find; the bad thing
is you must start to repay
the loan immediately; re-
payment is not postponed
until students graduate.
Another thing to con-
sider is where your student
will be going to school. If
you cannot handle the huge
tuitions that some schools
charge, you may want to
consider sending your stu-
dent to a community col-
lege, if one is available.
Your student could live at
home for two years and
then get into a good school
for the last two years.
If you have a home, you
could certainly get a home

credit is as good as you

should contribute to their
education. Not only is it fi-
nancially helpful, but from
the standpoint of building
character, it's unbeatable.

A rare fight for print readers

Newspapers clash

in New Orleans

Associated Press

Times-Picayune decided to print
three days a week, a nearby pub-
lication saw a chance to expand in
the newspaper's backyard and fill
a void that, for some in the New
Orleans area, is as much a part of
the morning routine as beignets
and French coffee.
The Advocate of Baton Rouge, a
family-owned daily published 70
miles north, will begin a daily
New Orleans edition Monday, set-
ting up an old-fashioned newspa-
per war. The battle for print
readers comes even as more peo-
ple get their news online and from

Hundreds of people have rallied
against the changes, and elected

have been quick to criticize. Some

campaign to get the paper's owner
to sell it.

sissippi River all forged tight
bonds with readers.
The Advocate's challenge is the
first by a major daily newspaper
in New Orleans in more than 50
years. The Advocate has built its
reputation on accountability re-
porting in state government and
coverage of Louisiana State Uni-
versity, particularly school sports.
Both newspapers have steadily
shifted to online news.
In June, The Times-Picayune's
owner, privately held Advance
Publications Inc., and a new sub-
sidiary, Nola Media Group, an-
nounced the paper would lay off
200 employees and shift its focus
to the free website Nola.com. Ad-
vance is pursuing similar three-
times-a-week strategies with
several other newspapers in the
chain, including publications in
Michigan, Alabama, Pennsylvania
and New Jersey
Edward Atorino, a media indus-
try analyst at Benchmark Co., said
other newspapers in major metro-
politan markets will closely
watch The Times-Picayune's
"The day of the seven-day news-

uation. It's not a shock, and we're
going to see more of it."
Atorino said total print adver-
tising dollars in the United States
dropped from roughly $23 billion
in 2008 to $19 billion in 2011.
While TheAdvocate takes steps
into the New Orleans market,
Nola Media is planning to strike
back. The company said it will ex-
pand its operations in The Advo-
cate's home turf and offer a
customized version of Nola.com
for Baton Rouge residents.
"There are a lot of competitors
in the market," new Times-
Picayune publisher Ricky Math-
ews said. "We've always got to
strive to be the best we can be."
Nola Media is telling readers
the print edition will be familiar,
complete and even better. Proto-
type pages included an expanded
opinion section and color comics
for the Wednesday edition, which
will carry three days' worth of
comics and crossword puzzles.
Editor Jim Amoss, who oversaw
a news operation that won four
Pulitzers, said there will be plenty
of news.
"Reduction is something of a

ing, but the three editions that we
will be printing will hold their
own in news hole and amount of
content against what is now dis-
tributed over seven days."
Even after recent layoffs, in-
cluding more than 70 from the
newsroom, Amoss said the new
operation is employing 156 people

Investors eye the

'cliff as Obama

gains in polls

AP Business Writer

NEW YORK As President Barack
Obama widened his lead over Mitt
Romney in polls this month, traders at
hedge funds and investment firms
began shooting emails to clients with a
similar theme: It's time to start prepar-
ing for an Obama victory.
What many in the market worry
about isn't that high earners may pay
more in taxes if Obama is reelected. It's
gridlock in Washington come January,
when more than $600 billion in spend-
ing cuts and tax hikes could kick in just
as the country smacks into its borrow-
ing limit again.
There is reason to expect a deal. If
Obama wins, the Republican fight to
make him a one-term president will be
lost With the elections over, there will
be little reason or room for political
posturing. House Republicans could fi-
nally decide to be more cooperative.
"They'll be faced with determining
whether we get a recession or not," says
Jeff Kleintop, chief market strategist at
LPL Financial.
But investors remember the budget
battle in the summer of last year, which
ended with the country losing its top
credit rating and panicked investors
fleeing the stock market Investors are
fearful of a repeat In a second term,
Obama would likely again be pitted
against a Republican-controlled House
of Representatives.
"If you have any kind of gridlock, you
run the risk of inaction," says Tom Si-
mons, a market economist at the in-
vestment bank Jefferies. "This is a
situation where inaction is the worst
The next fight could get just as messy,
but most on Wall Street think Congress
and Obama would eventually manage
to postpone some of the $600-billion-
plus "fiscal cliff" before the year is out
and avoid tipping the economy into a
The Congressional Budget Office re-
cently laid out the grim consequences
of dropping off the fiscal cliff. Starting
Jan. 1, tax cuts signed by President
George W Bush expire, as do Obama's
cuts to payroll taxes. Federal spending
on defense and other domestic pro-
grams will drop, while emergency un-
employment benefits run out
The combined effect off all these
changes would shrink the economy
nearly 3 percent at an annual rate in
the first half of next year, the CBO esti-
mates, and push unemployment up to
9.1 percent by the fall. Recent surveys
of businesses suggest the threat is al-
ready weighing on the minds of execu-
tives when they're making hiring and
spending plans.
For the world's biggest money man-
agers, the fiscal cliff now ranks as the
greatest hazard to the global economy,
according to Bank ofAmerica's most re-
cent fund manager survey It topped the

will find a way to escape it
"Ultimately, I think a deal gets done,
but it's just a question of how long it
takes to get there," Kleintop says. "By
no means is it going to be an easy
process. Gridlock means there's a
greater chance that this drags on into
next year."
Analysts at investment firms have
kept a close eye on polling numbers and
especially on the Intrade, an online
marketplace where members can trade
predictions on events like elections.
Polls show voters leaning toward
Obama in key swing states. On Intrade,
the odds have swung strongly in
Obama's direction, jumping to a 76 per-
cent chance of re-election, up from 51
percent at the start of September
Democrats are far less likely to take
the House from Republicans, who hold
a 50-seat majority. Intrade markets put
the chance that Republicans will con-
trol the House at 74 percent.
If these forecasts prove right, the bal-
ance of power in Washington would re-
main the same. Democrats keep the
White House and a slim majority in the
Senate, and Republicans keep the
What troubles investors is that the
same cast of characters who fought over
raising the debt ceiling last year could
be taking up the same task again while
debating how best to maneuver around
the fiscal cliff
Expect to see a replay of the debt-
ceiling fight, says Ian Lyngen, a senior
government bond strategist at CRT
Capital. Except that this time what's at
stake is the country's borrowing limit
and a recession.
"I'm sure it's going to go just like it did
last time -very messy," Lyngen says.
In one dizzying stretch that August,
the Dow Jones industrial average
dropped 2,000 points in three weeks.
'And don't forget," Lyngen adds, "that

bank would charge.
The fact that this pharmacy
is in a rural area with no
competition could change to-
morrow. A retail chain could
decide to put up a store
nearby, and finance people
will then get nervous.
If you have substantial eq-
uity in a home, a second
mortgage (home equity loan)
may be another way to go. If
you don't have any cash of
your own, that is likely going
to be a problem.
If you are married, can you

feeling the pinch of not hav-

ment until now. I clear $295 a

pense of $350 for my car pay-

credit card bills are around
$1,800 from medical ex-

things. My other monthly ex-
penses run about $250.
I am thinking about getting
a zero-interest credit card
and combining my credit
card bills to get my monthly
payment down to $100. I
would also like to start in-
vesting in a 401(k), but having
more money taken out of my
monthly income is hard. My
health may take a toll if I add
a part-time job. Any sugges-

ultimately got resolved."
The widespread belief on Wall Street
is that Congress and Obama will start
negotiations over raising the debt limit
and pushing back the fiscal cliff when
they return in late November the so-
called lame-duck session, because
newly elected members of Congress
will not have taken their seats.
Twists in the talks will likely rattle
markets as the new year approaches.
But if stocks do fall sharply, investors
expect that would push Republicans
and Democrats to reach a deal.
"Ugly negotiations in the lame-duck
session could really throw the market
for a loop," says Kleintop. "It could be a
painful process for investors."
In a report out this week, analysts at
Goldman Sachs tried to estimate just
how painful the process will be. Gold-
man expects the stock market will start
sinking after the elections as people re-
alize the fiscal cliff "will not be solved
in a smooth fashion."
That's the reason Goldman forecasts
that one broad measure of the stock
market, the Standard & Poor's 500
index, will end this year at 1,250 a 13
percent drop from where it closed
But all of that mayhem sounds better
than the alternative: another recession
caused by letting the $600 billion in tax
increases and spending cuts through.
It's also why many take solace in the
idea that, whatever their political party,
nobody wants the economy to shrink.
Dan Greenhaus, chief global strate-
gist at the brokerage BTIG, wonders if
that's placing too much faith in Wash-
ington. "Republicans aren't losing the
House," Greenhaus said. "So as the
odds of Obama winning re-election go
up, what you have to ask is: How are
these two parties going to find middle
ground in just a few months? I have no

you still can't You should

DEAR READER: I can un-
derstand your frustration, but
the reality is that you can't
run away from an obligation
and expect it to disappear
You owe the money on the
credit cards and apparently
you stopped making these
payments, even the mini-
mum. Had you not done that,
your creditors would not be
suing you.
The credit card companies
can't take your home, but
they most surely can get a
lien against it. As a conse-
quence, you wouldn't be able
to sell the house until you
paid not only the amount
owed but also ongoing inter-
est for every day that passed
until the obligation was paid.
Social Security and civil serv-
ice money cannot be at-
tached, but still you can't just
wiggle your nose and have
the debt go away.
You should be able to ne-
gotiate a lower fee, but if you
already made arrangements
to pay off this obligation and
negotiating a lower fee was
not done at that time, I sus-
pect this option is no longer
available to you.
I wish I could tell you
more, but creditors do expect
to be paid. The fact that
things are tough is not an ex-
cuse not to pay

Startups find benefits in

launching in bad times

AP Business Writer

NEW YORK Starting
a business in a tough econ-
omy taught entrepreneurs
Chuck Tanowitz and Todd
Van Hoosear the value of
The duo started Fresh
Ground, a public relations
firm, in Boston in early
2010. The recession was
technically over, but many
companies were still feel-
ing its effects. That trans-
lated to some prospective
clients trying to get some-
thing for, well, very little.
They quickly learned to
structure conversations
with prospective clients so
they would know early on
how much money a client
was willing or able to
spend rather than dis-
covering at the end of a
long meeting that a client
had just $1,000 for a
We learned "how to fig-
ure out where to find the
right (clients) prospects
versus the ones who are
just tire-kicking," Tanowitz
Conventional wisdom
says don't start a business
during an economic down-
turn. Based on government
figures, many people
agree. In 2007, there were
844,000 new startups in the
U.S. By 2009, that number
had fallen to just 700,000,
according the Bureau of
Labor Statistics.
But a starting a company
during bad economic times
can be good business. It
often teaches entrepre-
neurs lessons that make
them better business own-
ers, and it can reap bene-
fits such as savings on
rents, products and serv-
ices and access to a better
talent pool.
In a downturn, entrepre-
neurs learn how to be bet-
ter business owners
because they have to work
harder to get and keep cus-
tomers, says Caroline
Daniels, an Entrepreneur-
ship lecturer at Babson
College in Wellesley, Mass.
"In the days when the
economy is booming and a
lot of resources are
around, we get sloppy. We
take customers for
granted," Daniels says. "In
a recessionary period ... we
need to get to know our
customers better"
Fresh Ground's
founders, who decided to
start their firm after they
were laid off from their
jobs in 2009, took lessons
from some disappointing
client meetings and
flipped them into a strat-
egy that is helping them
build their business. The
firm's revenue has doubled
in the past year, according
to Tanowitz.
"We knew consciously
that coming out of a reces-
sion we'd be much
stronger, we'd have a good
base of clients," Tanowitz
When Jeanine Hamilton
started Hire Partnership, a
staffing company, in Boston
in mid-2008 it looked like
the worst possible timing.
Companies were laying

people off and there was
very little hiring going on.
Like Tanowitz and Van
Hoosear, Hamilton also
had been laid off.
"I didn't realize how bad
the recession was going to
be I don't think anyone
knew right then," Hamilton
Business was tough at
first, but Hamilton found
that there were benefits to
launching in an economic
downturn. Because so
many people were unem-
ployed, she was able to get
highly qualified candidates
that she could send out on
temporary jobs and to in-
terviews. Because she was
able to pull together a large
group of strong temporary
workers and job candi-
dates, she developed a
good reputation that is
serving her well now that
the economy is showing
signs of life. Since the mid-
dle of her first year in busi-
ness, she says revenue has
climbed 4,000 percent.
The recession not only
helped Hamilton find good
people for her clients, but
gave her more time to work
on making her own staff
better. Since business was
slow, she spent more time
on training with her staff
such as doing role-playing
exercises and listening to
her employees as they
worked with clients, and
then giving them feedback.
"When you have crazy
times, you don't have time
to do that," she says.
The prospect of opening
a knitting shop in the after-
math of the recession
looked risky. The economy
was hard on boutiques that
sell designer yarns, knit-
ting and crochet needles
and patterns. Many went
out of business when cus-
tomers cut back on their
hobbies or looked for less
expensive yarn online.
But is also meant there
was less competition. So
Karen Posniak, a former
retail salesperson and a
personal shopper, decided
that it was a good time to
fulfill her dream of open-
ing a knitting shop of her
own. She and her husband
had moved to Hoboken,
N.J., just across the Hud-
son River from Manhattan,
to be closer to his job in
New York City. She used
proceeds from the sale of
their old house in a New
Jersey suburb to open the
store, Do Ewe Knit in
Hoboken in August.
Hoboken's proximity to
New York had pushed
rents up over the years, but
like most of the country,
the tough economy brought
prices down. The soft real
estate market made it eas-
ier for Posniak to negotiate
a three-year lease with the
terms she wanted, she says.
The landlord originally
wanted to charge her
$3,100 a month.
She told him, "I'm just
starting out. Maybe you can
help me can't you give

McDonald's asks, TV with that?

New channel

on eatery's menu

AP Television Writer

LOS ANGELES The question
of the moment at 700 pioneering
McDonald's restaurants: You want
TV with those fries?
Not just any television, but the
custom-made M Channel, formu-
lated and tested with the same at-
tention to detail that made Big
Macs and Chicken McNuggets cul-
tural icons.
The channel's aim is to offer ex-
clusive content to entertain cus-
tomers. More ambitiously, it also
intends to create promotional and
sales opportunities for record
companies and others who want to
dive into McDonald's vast cus-
tomer pool.
Lee Edmondson, who has spent
more than eight years developing
the concept for McDonald's and
years beforehand pondering it, said
the fast-food chain is thinking way
outside the TV box.
"It is a vision that is more than
television," more than the "passive
relationship" that viewers have
with gas station or supermarket TV
feeds, said Edmondson, who comes
from a venture-capital background.
The M channel is akin to a
broadcast network with its own
news, entertainment and sports-
casts localized for cities and even
neighborhoods, he said. But
there's more: It will supersize the
experience by directing viewers
online for shopping or other
Get details on a featured elec-
tronic toy or be among the first to
download a music video discovered
via M Channel. Want to get close to
artists you heard on your coffee
break? Enter to win backstage con-
cert passes or maybe lunch with
them (just a guess, but the location
may not be optional).

Associated Press
McDonald's patrons watch the new McDonald's television channel Sept. 7 at a McDonald's restaurant in Nor-
walk, Calif. McDonald's is testing its own TV channel in 700 California restaurants in a pilot project that
could expand to all the company's restaurants.

M Channel's goal is to target dif-
ferent audiences at different times
of day and be so area-specific that a
restaurant could show high school
football game highlights to home-
town fans, Edmondson said. News
reports are taped by local station
anchors for the channel.
Among those who have enlisted
as content providers are producer
Mark Burnett ("Survivor," "The
Voice"), ReelzChannel and broad-
cast stations. A range of advertisers,
minus other restaurants and per-
haps alcoholic beverages, will be
welcome, Edmondson said.
For now, the programming is in
its infancy At a McDonald's in
Costa Mesa, south of Los Angeles, a
flat-screen TV tucked in a corner
showed an hour-long loop that in-
cluded weather; a trivia quiz that

promoted "Jeopardy!"; features on
windsurfing in Maui and auto rac-
ing; and a Hollywood movie report
packaged by ReelzChannel.
A mom grabbing a meal with her
two children briefly glanced at a
tech segment on back-to-school
products, including computers and
smartphones, before exiting.
Other diners sitting close to the
TV were buried in their laptops,
phones or magazines, the screen
showing the distinctive arched "M"
logo merely providing wallpaper.
Ruby Lua of Santa Ana, who
works at a nearby supermarket,
took a break from texting to say she
preferred the satellite feed the
restaurant used to show. How about
if the channel offered music and
related downloads?
"That would be more interest-

ing," said the 18-year-old Lua, perk-
ing up.
That opening is just what Ed-
mondson wants to exploit
"If you see a piece of content that
connects with you immediately,
we've provided you a value," he
said. "If we can do it consistently,
we become a trusted source of in-
formation ... and a great way for
content providers to engage with
Major music companies are
"Interscope values a new way of
communicating to customers
where our content is positioned
front and center to a massive audi-
ence," said Jennifer Frommer, the
company's head of brand partner-
ships. "The channel provides a
platform to market music in ways

that have never been done before."
The pilot project, which began
testing in scattered Western outlets
two years ago, recently completed
expansion to all McDonald's Cali-
fornia outlets from San Diego
north to Bakersfield. All told, the
eateries get nearly 15 million
monthly visits from adult cus-
tomers alone.
M Channel could expand to the
roughly 14,000 McDonald's nation-
wide within 18 months of getting
the "go" from the company and
franchisees, Edmondson said. He
declined to predict when the green
light could come for the project
that has advanced with caution,
the giant chain's approach to mak-
ing changes.
The end game Edmonson fore-
sees: Versions of the channel in
McDonald's worldwide, and per-
haps the birth of a template for
other industries. So far, the in-
vestor-funded Channel M has con-
sumed tens of millions of dollars
and it "will be that again to pull it
off," he said, declining to give an
exact figure.
The M channel is "a smart thing
to do," said Valerie Folkes, a mar-
keting professor at the University
of Southern California's Marshall
School of Business.
TV sets, which originally
sprouted in auto service shops and
elsewhere to keep customers dis-
tracted while cooling their heels,
have new potential in a splintered
media market.
'Advertisers face difficulties not
only in reaching the right people
but also in capturing their atten-
tion," Folkes said. "Here they have
people who they know are cus-
tomers and who are more inclined
to listen to their message."
How will McDonald's Corp.
judge M Channel's value?
'Ad revenues are important, but
the channel must be positively re-
ceived by our customers in order to
be viewed as a success," said Brad
Hunter, senior marketing director
for McDonald's USA.

Attention Consumers!
Please make sure you
are using a licensed
and insured service
professional. Many
service advertisers are
required by state law
to include their state
license number in all
advertisements. If you
don't see a license
number in the ad, you
should inquire about it
and be suspicious that
you may be contact-
ing an unlicensed
business. The Citrus
County Chronicle
wants to ensure that
our ads meet the re-
quirements of the law.
Beware of any service
advertiser that can not
provide proof that
they are licensed to do
business. For questions
about business
licensing, please call
your city or county gov-
ernment offices.

Bark provides sturdy protection for trees

Just as human beings
have a protective outer
layer all over their bod-
ies known as skin, so do
trees have a protective
outer layer called bark.
Tree bark is really amazing
stuff. It's a tree's natural
armor! Bark protects trees
from external threats and
serves a number of impor-
tant functions such as:
Protecting the delicate
cambium layer (growing

Historically, bark has pro-

inner bark of a tropical
evergreen tree? Oak bark
was the source of tannins
used to process leather in
ancient times. Two very im-

Autumn flowers add color

In September it is a delight to see
gardens, roadsides and fields with
bright wildflowers. Gold, yellow,
purple and white are the prevalent
fall colors of native wildflowers.
The tall goldenrod, Solidago
species, ranges from 2 to 6
feet tall. They are peren-
nial, but do die back to the
ground for winter Masses of
flowers borne on tall termi-
nal racemes are golden yel-
low. The pollen grains are
large and heavy, so they fall
to the ground rather than
becoming airborne. Rag-
weed and dogfennel start to
bloom at the same time as Jane
lovely goldenrod. These two JAN
weeds are allergens that af-
fect some humans. GAR
Native throughout the
eastern United States, 19 species of
goldenrod are native to Florida. Gold-
enrod thrives from Zones 6 to 10 in full
sun to part shade. They prefer sandy,
well-drained soil, either acidic or
slightly alkaline. Soil may be moist,
with lots of decayed organic material,
or quite dry and sandy. Goldenrod
ranges in habitat from dry sandhills,
coastal dunes, disturbed roadsides

and tidal marsh woods to the verges of
swamps and bogs. Seaside goldenrod
is salt-tolerant and an important nec-
tar plant for migrating Monarch but-
Shorter than goldenrod are the ele-
gant spikes of native Lia-
I tris, commonly called
Blazing Star and Gay
Feather. Some 15 species
are native to Florida. They
prosper in Zones 6 to 10 as
far north as South Carolina
and west to Mississippi.
They grow in full sun but
tolerate partial shade.
Flower spikes grow from 2
Weber to 7 feet tall and may be
E'S branched if the growing tip
is damaged. Showy flowers
DEN grow from the top third of
the spike. Color is purple,
ranging from lilac-purple to pinkish
and pale, almost white lavender. Soil
is usually sandy either moist with or-
ganic material or dry and grainy Soil
pH may be somewhat acidic to neutral
at 7.
Liatris grows from an underground
solid corm which is replaced by a

Wall hangings are work of noted artist; measure of a map

Dear John: Thank you for
taking a look at these pho-
tos of a couple of wall
hangings. My mother has these
hanging on a wall in her Fort
Lauderdale home.
They are quite heavy
and appear to be a
bronze or other metal-
lic casting. Please let
me know if you are able
to tell me something
about these wall hang-
ings. -S.R, Internet
Dear S.R.: In your
photographs I can see John S
the name L. Hottot lo- SIKOP
cated at the lower
right on the plaques. AT
Louise Hottot, 1834-
1905, was a French sculptor
whose works are actively sought
after. His specialty was Arab fig-
ures in both bronze and white
metal. Prices paid for his works
run from the mid-hundreds to as
high as $28,000. His bronze fig-
ures sell for the highest prices.


Most of his white metal figures
were polychrome decorated. I
think your two bas-relief wall
plaques of Arab figures are made
of white metal. Originally, they
were likely poly-
chrome decorated,
which has deteriorated
over time. Potential
dollar value for each is
in the $200 range.
Dear John: My hus-
band has filled his den
with maps. Recently,
my mother found a
korski framed vintage-
'SKI'S looking map at a thrift
store, and bought it for
-C us. It is in rough condi-
tion, the canvas ap-
pears to be rusting, and there is
a tear that is slightly bigger than
an inch. I know little to nothing
about artwork, but am pretty sure
this is a mass-produced item. So
I am wondering if the rusted ap-
pearance and crackling was part
of the reproduction or due to

cheap materials utilized. I have
tried to include enough pictures
to show the crackling and ap-
pearance of rust. The only other
thing I can think to mention is
the canvas is tacked on the
frame, not stapled, but the nail
tacks do not appear to have rust.
When I have time, I plan to look
into getting the tear repaired. If
you could make recommenda-
tions that would be very helpful.
I have really enjoyed reading
up on the history of the picture. I
spent a few evenings searching
websites and images. I have also
ordered a couple of books from
the library
See ATTIC/Page E5
This wall hanging sculpture
by French artist L. Hottot depicts
an Arab figure. It likely was origi-
nally decorated with polychrome,
which has deteriorated
over time. It might sell in the
$200 range.

I have tried to be as com-
plete as possible. I hope I
am not wasting your time, as
this is not an antique. I en-

years and find your infec-
tious love of all things old to

Dear John: I want to find
out about the value of two
items. I have an original
movie poster from the
movie "Stolen Love."
In addition, I have a
guestbook from a hotel
signed by Washington Irving
in which he also wrote a
small piece of poetry How
would I get these items val-
ued? -A.B., Internet
Dear A.B.: Movie posters
are a specific category of
collecting. The movie
"Stolen Love" was produced
in 1928. The three main ac-
tors were Marceline Day,
Rex Lease, and Owen
Moore. Two of the main in-

gredients relative to collec-
tor interest and potential
dollar value are the impor-
tance of the movie and actor
recognition. I suspect most
of our readers do not re-
member the movie or the
main actors. Potential dol-
lar value is below $100.
The guest book and po-
etry by Washington Irving,
1783-1859, is a really nice
item. Potential dollar value
is below $200.
DearJohn: I had the pleas-
ure of listening to, and call-
ing in, to your program on
May 5. You were kind enough
to give me the name of a web-
site that auctions antique
woodworking tools. Once I
got home, I looked up the
site, and found it to be very

interesting and informative.
Unfortunately, when I
wanted to access the site
again, I realized I had lost
the address. I have tried
"googling" all sorts of things,
but to no avail. Would you
please be so kind as to ad-
vise the name of this site,
and perhaps any others you
can recommend for trying to
sell some antique tools? -

enjoyed the website. Martin

For The Associated Press

Time to wake up and
smell the coffee. At the re-
cent New York Interna-
tional Gift Fair, buyers
were keenly checking out
grinders, pots and brewing
equipment, which means
coffee-related gifts will be
as hot as a frothy latte this
holiday season.
Coffee culture is, natu-
rally, intense. On YouTube,
helpful fellows offer video
tips on buying, storing and
preparing everything from
a humble cup of Americano
to a perfect macchiato.
Bloggers discuss "mid-
palate chocolate tones"
and "smoky back ends"
with the same authoritative
enthusiasm as oenophiles.
(You can learn a lot: Never
store coffee in the fridge or
freezer, for example, since
condensation on the beans
or grounds spoils the
Here's what up in the
It all starts with the
grind, according to experts.
Chris Weaver, coffee colum-
nist and head barista at
Store Street Espresso in
London, says, "the most im-
portant piece of equipment
for home coffee brewing is
a good-quality grinder. Peo-
ple should always look at
buying a grinder with burrs
instead of blades."
That's because you want
an even grind; a consistent
pile of coffee grounds will
release those delicious aro-
matics smoothly into the
hot water. Top-quality
grinders also produce min-
imal heat; many experts
believe heat damages the
coffee grains.
The Breville Conical
Burr Grinder has 25 differ-
ent grinds and a storage
container. ($199.95,

Grinder has an electric
timer that will grind
enough for two to 12 cups,

then turn itself off. ($49.95,
When it comes to brew-
ing gear, choices range
from low-tech, "pour-over"
receptacles to high-tech
machines that pretty much
brew themselves. Some cof-
fee enthusiasts prefer the

classic Chemex, a simple
glass receptacle in which
you fit a coffee-filled paper
filter. Boil your water, pour
it through the filter and
voila. The pour-over
method supposedly gives a
purer, fully extracted brew.
(Chemex Classic eight-cup,

$38.95, wwwcrateand
French presses employ
an equally simple pour
method. Put the coffee in
the glass pot, pour hot
water in, steep for four
minutes, then gently press
the plunger. Fans say the

brew is full-bodied since
more oil and sediment are
transferred. (Bodum Shin

while the magic happens.
Toptenreviews.com, a tech-
gadget review site, gives
high marks to Cuisinart's
Automatic Brew and Serve
and Krups Programmable
Coffee Maker. The former
has a convenient insulated
carafe, while the latter has
a cleaning indicator light.
Both are powerful, so you
get your coffee fast. (Cuisi-
nart 10-cup Thermal Ex-
treme Brew, 189.99; Krups
Precision 12-cup, $99.95,
The Ferrari of coffee
makers just might be the
Saeco Intelia Cappuccino
Espresso Machine, with a
built-in burr grinder,
brewer and milk brother,
and a dashboard of cus-
tomizable features. A
handy "traffic light" system
guides you through the
steps. ($1,299.95,
Finally, there's the sin-
gle-serve coffee market,
which has grown by triple
digits in the last few years.
Nespresso, already big in
Europe, is making a signifi-
cant push into the North
American market with a
club system to buy its cap-
sules. (www.nespresso-us.
com) Note, however, that
Williams-Sonoma sells
their newest machine, the
streamlined "U," pre-
packed with 16 starter cap-
sules ($199.95).

tainer of coffee; Emeril's,

format's suppliers. (Keurig
Mini Plus Brewer, $99.99,
Krups, Melitta, Bunn and

at which to buy different
