Bondi said the law that governs the sale or lease of public hospitals requires approval from the state Health Care Administration, but not voters. The Citrus County Hospital Board had requested the formal opinion prior to signing a letter of intent with any company interested in the sale, lease or merger of Citrus Memorial hospital. Both the CCHB, which owns the hospital, and Citrus Memorial Health Foundation, which leases it from the CCHB, must approve a transaction with a single bidder. The foundation is expected to narrow its choice in September. The bidders are: Tampa General Hospital, Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), Health Management Associates (HMA) and RegionalCare Hospital Partners.

Thorpe, who announced in May he was resigning as Citrus County administrator, now is leaving the door open to staying if county commissioners want to stop the search for his replacement. If they feel like the applicant pool is weak and they want to try something else, Ill stay as long as required, Thorpe said Tuesday. Commission Chairman Joe Meek said he will ask commissioners to decide at their meeting Tuesday whether to accept Thorpes offer to stay, or move forward with narrowing the 28 applicants down to a handful for interviews. Meek said his preference is that Thorpe stay on as county administrator. I would like to see him stay, if that works for his personal situation, Meek said. If he is willing to do that, I think it would be a benefit to this county to continue the stability and move forward on issues were focusing on. When he announced his retirement, Thorpe agreed to stay on the job until a replacement was hired. Now, however, the status of senior staff is an issue. Since Thorpes announcement, assistant county administrator Ken Frink left for a job with the Southwest Florida Water Management District and public information officer Lindsay Ubinas accepted a position with the sheriffs office. Also, County Attorney Richard Wesch is an applicant in Lee County, Management and Budget Director Cathy Taylor may be retiring within the year, and Development Services Director Vince Cautero, who applied to replace Thorpe, has applied this year for positions in Escambia County and the city of Gainesville. Thorpe walks back retirement talk Administrator says hell stay on job as long as the county needs his services Brad Thorpecounty administrator. See THORPE/ Page A9 ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerSummer activities have reached a finale and public school students are returning to school today. That means children will be waiting at designated bus stops for their big yellow limousine the school bus. Here is a quick refresher on some of the school bus rules for drivers, students and parents.For drivers When you approach, meet or overtake a stopped school bus with red lights flashing and its stop arm extended, you must stop your car. On a two-lane road, traffic in both directions must stop. On a divided roadway, traffic in both directions must stop if the median is a center turn lane. The biggest law that is not followed is when vehicles pass school buses on multi-lane highways that dont have a raised or divided median, district transportation supervisor Marilyn Farmer said. They think if there is a median that they dont have to stop in the opposite lane of travel. If it is a paved median, they do have to stop. If it is raised or grassed or change in surface, they dont stop. On a divided roadway with a raised or grassy median, traffic coming in the opposite direction of the school bus does not stop. Wait until the red lights and arm have been deactivated before proceeding.For the students Arrive at the bus stop at least 15 minutes prior to its scheduled arrival. Be seated properly forward facing with seat belt on and properly adjusted. The majority of the buses, if not all, will have seat belts this year, Farmer said. The seats are built to withstand impact if you are seated properly. Keep the isles clear and your belongings with you. Keep noise level down so that the driver is not distracted. Keep food and candy off of the bus or put away. Listen and be respectful to the bus driver.For the parents Parents must accompany their child to the bus stop. Parents dont realize that it is their obligation to get their child to and from the bus stop safely, Farmer said. Once we arrive, they become our responsibility. Eye on bus safety Chronicle fileAs public schools across the Citrus County School District open today, roads will become more congested with buses taking students to and from their schools. As school starts up again, heres what you need to know about buses See BUSES/ Page A9 The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE After years of battling utilities, insurance companies and, at times, Republican colleagues, longtime state lawmaker Mike Fasano is headed out of Tallahassee. Gov. Rick Scott on Tuesday appointed Fasano as Pasco County tax collector, replacing Mike Olson, who died this year. Fasano, 55, said Scott called him Tuesday morning with the news of the appointment. The New Port Richey Republican served in the House from 1994 to 2002, in the Senate from 2002 to 2012 and then returned to the House last year. His Senate district included Citrus County west of U.S. 19.

Around theCOUNTY Humanitarians speak for catsImpassioned members of the Humanitarians of Florida addressed the Inverness City Council on Tuesday, advocating for the six feral cats that were removed from Whispering Pines Park two months ago. These are beautiful cats, but theyre feral theyre not adoptable, and they belong out in the wild, said Humanitarians president Maggie Hypes. We feel we are the voices for these animals. Somebody has to speak up for them because they cannot speak for themselves. The Humanitarians appealed to the council to let the cats return to the park. City Manager Frank DiGiovanni, the council members, city attorney and the mayor presented a united front in their stand that the cats should not be returned, in the interest of the greater good to people who visit the park, as well as the natural wildlife. However, they did note the sincerity and good work done by the Humanitarians. Read Thursdays Chronicle for more details.

From staff reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Habla Espaol? Many do Associated PressORLANDO More than 1 out of 4 Floridians speak a language other than English in their homes, with Spanish being the most common, according to new Census Bureau figures released Tuesday. More than 27 percent of Floridians spoke a language other than English in 2011, up 2 percentage points from five years earlier. The overwhelming majority of those spoke Spanish or Spanish Creole, according to the Census. That amounted to about 3.6 million Spanishspeaking denizens out of Floridas 17.9 million residents over the age of 5. Floridas overall population is 19.3 million people. The next common nonEnglish language spoken at home was French or French Creole. Almost a half-million Floridians speak French Creole, the language spoken in Haiti and other former French colonies. Other non-English languages spoken in large numbers in Florida were Portuguese, with 86,000 speakers; German, with 70,000 speakers; Vietnamese, with 60,000 speakers; and Chinese, with 58,000 speakers. Florida has concentrations of Brazilians in South Florida, Germans along the Gulf Coast and Vietnamese in Orlando. Of the Floridians who spoke a language other than English in their homes, around 57 percent spoke English very well, on par with the national average. Only about 55 percent of Spanish, French and French Creole and Portuguese speakers spoke English very well. About 80 percent of German speakers, and only 43 percent of Vietnamese speakers in Florida, understood English very well. At the metropolitan level, the Miami-Fort Lauderdale region had the 10th highest rate of residents who speak a non-English language 51 percent of residents. The language spoken at home was Spanish in more than threequarters of those cases. Other metro areas where more than a quarter of residents spoke a language other than English were Orlando and Naples. CR3 nuke plant gets new regional oversight PATFAHERTY Staff writerThe Nuclear Regulatory Commission has transferred oversight of decommissioning activities at Crystal River area nuclear plant from Georgia-based Region II based to Pennsylvania-based Region I. The plant, known as CR3, is currently in the Post Operation Transition Phase of decommissioning. It has been offline since September 2009 when it was shut down to replace a steam generator. Restart was delayed due to internal cracking of the containment structure. In February, Duke Energy made a decision to retire the plant rather than attempt repairs. The utility was given up to two years to develop and submit a decommissioning plan. The transfer was explained by Marc Ferdas, Region 1 Division of Nuclear Materials Safety, in a letter to Terry Hobbs, decommissioning director at CR3. He said the objectives are to verify that decommissioning activities are being conducted safely and that spent fuel is safely stored onsite or transferred to another licensed location. This was an NRC decision based on existing decommissioning resources and expertise in Region I, following other decommissioning plants in the northeast, explained Duke spokeswoman Heather Danenhower. The change represents no notable differences in activities at CR3. NEC spokesperson Neil Sheehan said plants in the Northeast that have gone through the decommissioning process include:Maine Yankee, in Wiscasset, Maine.Yankee Rowe, in Rowe, Mass.Connecticut Yankee, in Haddam, Conn. Nationally, three more nuclear plants announced they were ceasing power operations in 2013. Nuclear safety remains our top priority, Danenhower said. We continue to interface with the NRC on a routine basis and the decommissioning continues to be a well-defined process with ahigh level of involvement and oversight by the NRC and other external parties. Unlike in the case of an operational nuclear power plant, NRC inspections during decommissioning are more periodic in nature, said Sheehan. Therefore, we dont expect any logistical challenges in terms of Region I inspectors traveling to the site to carry out their reviews. ERYN WORTHINGTON/ChronicleCitrus High School English teacher Nancy Smith, left, introduces herself to Quirine Belderbos whose son attends Citrus High at the schools open house. Smith believes forming teacher and parent relationships are vital to a students success.Parent-teacher teamworkChildren are mom and dads top priority, and parents want to give them every advantage in the world to succeed. But with all the time kids spend at school, parents cannot do it alone. Thats why its important for the most influential adults in a childs life to team up on a common goal. Parents should cultivate relationships with their childs teachers early, so they can work together toward the childs success. With the forging of the parent/ teacher relationship, a team is formed which can ensure student success, said Citrus High School English teacher Nancy Smith. Knowing what is going on in the classroom is important when parents are trying to help their children with schoolwork or social issues. Often, solutions can be found before problems arise. There are several ways for parents to build a relationship with their kids teacher.Introduce yourselfDont wait until there is a problem before meeting the teacher. Introduce yourself as soon as possible ideally, before the stresses of the school year are in full swing. It doesnt have to be a long conversation just one to let the teacher know who you are and that you are interested in your childs education. Parents are always encouraged to meet the teachers at open house, but parents should never regard this as the only opportunity in a school year, Smith said. Teacher email addresses are on the schools websites. I know I enjoy it when a parent introduces himself/herself through email; it offers a convenient and timely way to respond to parent questions or concerns.Show appreciationAll kids and their parents have a teacher they admire and want to thank. Taking a few minutes to share these sentiments is important and can be easy. Parents are an integral part of their childrens educational process, Smith said. Whether parents attend open house, conference days or field trips; volunteer, chaperone; telephone or email, any attempt to improve communication between parents and teachers is a plus. All the groups benefit when they work as a team. Spend timeWith todays economy, many schools are stretched thin for resources. Parents who have time can offer to help out. Whether it is chaperoning school trips, preparing items for a fundraiser or just donating old books to the classroom, this kindness will go a long way toward solidifying the parent-teacher relationship. Volunteering in the school is also a wonderful opportunity to serve and to learn, Smith said. A parent can experience firsthand the workings of the school and become familiar with campus procedure and personnel. Eryn WorthingtonTeacher email addresses are on the schools websites.

Birthday Some of your more successful endeavors in the year ahead could be under the radar. Youll find that you dont need much acknowledgement or applause, just the gratification of a job well done. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Be extremely careful as to how you delegate assignments. If you select the wrong person for the job, you could end up with a big mess on your hands. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Dont let yourself get drawn into a disagreement between two friends. Regardless of which pal you side up with, your involvement will only cause more trouble. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Just because things are going smoothly at present, dont be indifferent to an important matter. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Its always smart to be extra careful about what you put in writing and to keep close track of the details of past agreements. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Dont look for much help regarding a financial problem. Unfortunately, youll have to take care of matters all by yourself. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If youre thinking about teaming up with somebody for a special endeavor, be sure that your partner can make a worthwhile contribution. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) This might not be a good day to get involved in something that requires total concentration and consistency. These qualities might not be your strong suit at present. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) If, for some reason, youre feeling reluctant to attend a social engagement, it might be better to pass it up rather than go and make a bad impression. Aries (March 21-April 19) Dont depend on Lady Luck to intervene and help you out; youre on your own this time. If you hope to get what you want, roll up your sleeves and get to work. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Its best that you more or less keep your trap shut today because there is a good chance your comments will be misconstrued and cause you to be seen as the bad guy. Gemini (May 21-June 20) More discipline than usual might be required if youre going to stay on budget. Extravagant urges could easily overpower you if youre not careful. Cancer (June 21-July 22) If you find yourself making a legal commitment, be sure to get the very best counsel available. TodaysHOROSCOPES Today is Wednesday, Aug. 7, the 219th day of 2013.

Carrey, who plays vigilante Colonel Stars and Stripes in the sequel to the 2010 hit, has distanced himself from the film, saying the shooting massacre at Connecticuts Sandy Hook Elementary school changed his perspective. Wadlow said Carrey is as unpredictable in real life as he is as an actor and you never know what he is going to do or say. He said he hopes people will see the movie and judge for themselves. He said that in many ways the movie is less violent than its predecessor, with more hand-tohand combat and fewer guns. Despite the controversy, Wadlow said Tuesday that Carrey is fantastic in the movie, and hed work with him again.Narragansett Beer reintroduces Jaws can designPROVIDENCE, R.I.

A 43year-old man has been charged with trying to break into musician Kid Rocks home. Brian D. Keith of Oakland County was arraigned by video Tuesday in District Court in Clarkston on felony charges of attempted home invasion and malicious destruction property. Keith asked for a court-appointed attorney and is being held on $75,000 bond. Keith was arrested Saturday after surveillance photos from security cameras on Kid Rocks property in Clarkston were released. The photos showed a man ramming the gate last Wednesday and trying to break into the house. The man was on crutches. Judge Joseph Fabrizio cited Keiths criminal record and lack of ties to the area in setting the bond high in relation to the charges. Keith has 14 convictions as an adult, including several for drunken driving and fraud, the judge said. I do not find that you have strong ties to the community, Fabrizio told Keith. You have an out-of-state criminal history. While you have seven children, you do not have any custody of them. Authorities have impounded a 1994 Ford Club Wagon van that they said Keith used to force open the gated driveway. Keith is due back in court Monday.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protections Jonathan Dickinson State Park will conduct prescribed burns through Thursday, weather permitting. The prescribed burns will consist of up to 985 acres of pine flatwoods. Fire officials say prescribed burning mimics natural fire cycles to restore healthy forests and natural communities, reduce undergrowth that accumulates over time and decreases the potential for wildfire. Burned lands experience an increase in native wildflowers, birds and other wildlife. Visit www.FloridaState Parks.org and www.good fires.org to learn more about prescribed burning.No one picks correct Fantasy 5TALLAHASSEE No tickets matched all five Fantasy 5 numbers, meaning the 260 tickets with four numbers correct are worth $555 each, the Florida Lottery said Tuesday.

In fact, it set a record for the farthest distance ever documented for a crocodile to travel in Florida from its birthplace in the Miami to Naples and then on to Tarpon Springs in Pinellas County, said Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Gary Morse. Officials believe the croc had been in the lake for at least a year before it was spotted by a resident in July. She called authorities who captured the 700-pound creature. He didnt look anything like a gator, said Wanda Vekasi, who spotted the croc in the lake. She told the Tampa Bay Timeshe had big spikes sticking out of his tail. It just looked evil. Wildlife experts know a little bit about him thanks to markings biologists carve into the scutes or armored tiles on the tails of crocodiles born around Turkey Point. The carvings leave a distinctive pattern officials can use to identify the crocodiles. Experts predict some 2,000 crocodiles live in Florida, where they are classified as an endangered species. Most of the crocodiles live in the Crocodile Lake National Refuge in Key Largo or around Turkey Point, according to wildlife officials. But this crocodile apparently has wanderlust. In 2008, the croc now dubbed the Lake Tarpon Crocodile was spotted on the golf course at Grey Oaks Country Club in Naples, Morse said. The state sent a trapper to catch it. Lindsey Hord, the states top crocodile expert, spotted the markings on its tail and took note of its vital signs. At that point, it was 8 feet, 4.25 inches long. The crocodile was released into the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Reserve south of Naples. A year later, it returned to the country club. Wildlife officials let it alone that time. Last year, residents in northern Pinellas County reported seeing a reptile near their docks on Lake Tarpon. The Timesreported the croc showed up last fall on a lawn in St. Petersburgs Caya Costa, which is a gated community on Tampa Bay. Then it moved on to Tarpon Springs. Morse said its not uncommon for crocodiles to stray from the Turkey Point area. But they usually end up in swimming pools in Miami or on lawns in the Florida Keys. He said he knows of none who have traveled so far. Occasionally animals will wander out of their traditional territory, Morse said, pointing out that a manatee once ended up in Massachusetts. Wildlife officials took the crocodile to an area south of Homestead, where he was released July 29. And his next adventure may already be under way. CROCODILE VS. ALLIGATORIt can be difficult for inexperienced people to tell the difference between an American crocodile and the other native crocodilian, the more common American alligator.The following are some of the major differences between the two: Crocodile Alligator Grayish green color Black in color Fourth tooth on lower jaw Only upper teeth exposed exposed when mouth is closedwhen mouth is closed Narrow, tapered snout Broad, rounded snout Young are light with dark stripesYoung are dark with yellow stripesSource: http://myfwc.com/wildlifehabitats/ managed/american-crocodile/croc-or-gator/ Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission StateBRIEFS From wire reports
Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Saying it was time to provide answers from a painful period in the states past, Floridas top officials voted Tuesday to let researchers dig up and try to identify remains buried at a closed reform school for boys. Former students have accused employees and guards at The Dozier School for Boys of physical and sexual abuse, so severe in some cases it may have led to death. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigated, but in 2009 the agency concluded it was unable to substantiate or dispute the claims. Researchers at the University of South Florida hope to identify boys in unmarked graves, and perhaps return them to family members for a proper burial. In its quest to exhume bodies, the university was rebuffed by a judge and by one state agency before Gov. Rick Scott and Florida Cabinet members approved the plan Tuesday. Researchers received nearly $200,000 from state legislators to begin their project later this month on the site 60 miles west of Tallahassee. The decision by the governor and others came despite opposition of some Jackson County residents who maintain the effort will result in negative publicity. Attorney General Pam Bondi said the state needed to act. We have to look at our history, we have to go back, Bondi said. We know there are unmarked graves currently on that property that deserve a proper burial. Its the right thing to do. The vote triggered a round of applause from former Dozier students at the Cabinet meeting. John Bonner, who called some of the Dozier employees vicious, said the universitys work could help people and families get answers about what happened at the school. Theres just so many things that could come out of this that could benefit people, said Bonner, who was at Dozier in the late s. The school opened in 1900 and was shut down in 2011 for budgetary reasons. Sid Riley, the managing editor of the weeklyJackson County Times, wrote to state officials in July, calling the plans a terrible project. We have an active industrial development program and a tourist development program here. If they proceed with this terrible project, our community will be exposed to over a year of negative publicity, Riley wrote. Riley said the groups promoting this effort would ultimately seek compensation and the politicians are playing up to the minority voters. Jackson County Commissioner Jeremy Branch said the project would continue to blemish the county and Marianna, where the school is located. He said he was confused as to what the exhumation of the bodies would discover. Are we trying to determine if bad things happened 100 years ago in America? Branch said. We know bad things happened in America. Researchers said they have already used historical documents to discover more deaths and gravesites than what the law enforcement agency found. Researchers said they verified the deaths of two adult staff members and 96 children ranging in age from 6 to 18 between 1914 and 1973. Records indicated 45 people were buried on the 1,400-acre tract from 1914 to 1952 and 31 bodies were sent elsewhere, leaving some bodies with whereabouts unknown. Woman donates kidney to husbandMIAMI A 26-year-old South Florida woman has given her husband the gift of life. Ricardo Bermudez, who suffers from IgA nephrophaty, was on a three-year waiting list to receive a kidney transplant when his wife discovered she shares his blood type and antigens. Doctors at Miamis Jackson Memorial Hospital were thrilled when they learned Andrea Bermudez, 26, was a match. Lucky for him she was like a sister, genetically, Dr. Adlea Mattiazzi, a University of Miami/Jackson transplant nephrologist told The Miami Herald Its really unusual to get a non-biologically related donor. Its once in a blue moon. Ricardo Bermudez, 30, first complained of sharp pain in his lower back in August 2011. Shortly afterward, he was diagnosed with the kidney disorder, in which protein builds up in the kidney. It causes the kidney to become inflamed and to malfunction. He began hemodialysis three times a week in December 2011 and switched to peritoneal dialysis last August. That allowed him to take the treatments at home. Andrea Bermudez told The Herald she knew she could live with one kidney so she had no problem sharing with her husband of six years. I did it for my kids. I didn't have a father around. I wanted to give the opportunity to them, she said. They have two children, Jacquelyn, 6, and Ricky Jr., 2. The transplant happened on June 12 and both spent the summer recovering. Driver killed when train hits carAVENTURA Authorities said a South Florida woman died when a train hit her car at a rail crossing in Aventura. The crash happened around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday along Biscayne Boulevard. Aventura police said the railroad crossings appeared to be in working order and that the vehicle had attempted to go around the crossings. The Miami Herald reported the FEC train was northbound. The woman was driving a Mercury Grand Marquis. Her name was not released.Woman drowns off Clearwater BeachCLEARWATER A woman drowned while swimming with her husband off Clearwater Beach on her 62nd birthday. The Tampa Bay Times reported Kristine Hellers husband noticed the current in the Gulf of Mexico was getting stronger as they swam Monday evening. He returned to shore while she continued swimming. He later told authorities his wife was a stronger swimmer. At some point, she got into trouble. A Clearwater Fire & Rescue crew found the womans body around 7:30 p.m. and began CPR. The boat was in the area conducting dive training for local police and firefighters. Heller was taken to Morton Plant Hospital, where she was pronounced dead about an hour later. Her husbands name was not released.Cops: TV tiff leads to battery chargeGAINESVILLE Gaines ville police said a 52-year-old man became so angry when a woman threatened to change the television channel that he grabbed her by the hair and repeatedly smashed her head against the wall. The incident happened Sunday night and Roosevelt Franklin remained in the Alachua County Jail early Tuesday on $50,000 bail. He faces charges of felony battery and resisting a police officer. The Gainesville Sun reported the victim told police Franklin had battered her before. She had bruises near her right eye and forehead and a laceration on her leg. Franklin told authorities the victim and another woman disturbed him while he was watching television. He said he didnt harm the woman and that the injuries were likely the result of an earlier fall.SeaWorld vets perform C-section ORLANDO SeaWorld veterinarians have successfully completed the parks first Cesarean section on a shark. Park officials announced Tuesday that the emergency C-section was performed last month on a whitetip reef shark at Discovery Cove, SeaWorlds sister park in Orlando. The parks animal team noticed a complication with the sharks pregnancy six months into gestation and determined the procedure was necessary. The shark gave birth to four healthy pups. Each baby weighed less than three pounds and measured about two feet in length. The Discovery Cove animal team and vets are continuing to monitor the sharks. They are reportedly doing well and eating and behaving normally. These sharks arent currently on display at Discovery Cove, but guests can see other whitetip reef sharks.STATECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, AUGUST7, 2013 A7 000FOA5 000FNBP Next to ACE in Homosassa ( 352 ) 628-3443 License #DN 17606 Ledgerdentistry.com FREE SECOND OPINION.

StateBRIEFS Sheriffs deputy fatally shot Domestic dispute turns deadly in Charlotte County Associated PressPORT CHARLOTTE A Charlotte County Sheriffs sergeant was fatally shot Monday while investigating a domestic disturbance at an apartment complex. The shooting occurred about 8 p.m. at the Lakes of Tuscana Apartments in Port Charlotte. Sgt. Michael Wilson, a 20-year veteran, was responding to a physical fight involving 49-yearold Jay Vanko, his wife and son. Police said Vanko shot Wilson from the top of a second-story stairwell, striking the officer in the chest above his bullet-proof vest. Investigators believe Vanko then turned the gun on himself. Deputies, with assistance from the Sarasota County Sheriffs Office SWAT team, used a tactical robot and found the suspect dead inside the apartment. Authorities said Vanko had no criminal record, but media outlets report that police had responded to prior domestic disturbances at the apartment. Investigators found two weapons at the scene. According to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, Vanko was known as a marksman who competed in shooting competitions. The 42-year-old Wilson is survived by his wife and three children. The Herald-Tribune reported that, over his career, the sergeant worked in the jail, road patrol and street crimes divisions of the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office, in addition to serving as a school resource officer. The work we perform each day is inherently dangerous, and deputies never know what they are going to find when going to work each day or responding to a call, said Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight. Today we are dealing with that horrendous reality. Associated PressSgt. Michael Wilson, 42, was fatally shot Monday while investigating a domestic disturbance at the Lakes of Tuscana Apartments in Port Charlotte. Bodies may be exhumed from reform school From wire reports
Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO Daymond Agnew told investigators that his Sunday began when he heard a voice from Allah telling him to go to a California hardware store to help people. They said it ended when Agnew spraypainted his face with the silver and black colors of the Oakland Raiders and stabbed a store clerk to death after he complained. Agnew, 34, was charged on Monday with murder and was being held in lieu of $1.6 million bail after authorities said he went on a bizarre, deadly trip to the store in El Sobrante, a suburb about 20 miles northeast of San Francisco. Agnew walked to the back of the store, where he spray-painted his face because Allah favors that football team, or words to that effect, Contra Costa County deputy district attorney Marty Knox said. He appeared to grow angry when the clerk, Daniel Joseph Stone, 51, told co-workers to call 911, Knox said. Stones colleagues initially thought Stone was being struck with fists because they couldnt see a knife. But the scene quickly turned bloody, and Stone fled through the store and fell down outside, where the attack continued, Knox said. Stone was pronounced dead after suffering 17 stab wounds. Contra Costa County Public Defender Robin Lipetzky said her office is representing Agnew, but she declined comment.

Stability is important for the county staff, Thorpe said. I at least could provide stability from the administration point of view. Plus, the community is still reeling from the Duke Energy tax situation, which threw the countys budget into flux where commissioners are considering a 30 percent tax increase. Meek said it may not be the best time to bring in a new administrator. Things are extraordinarily tough in our community right now, he said. The applicants include Cautero and assistant county administrator Cathy Pearson. Other applicants include assistant superintendent of schools Kenny Blocker, recently retired sheriffs bureau commander Bob Blume and a former Sarasota city manager.

Theyve also tried with monkeys, although the evidence in that species is mixed. Theres no way to know if there ever will be some type of Methuselah pill for humans. But with the field growing, Pew took the publics pulse and found most Americans wouldnt want a treatment that would let them live to 120. Fifty-six percent said no thanks although two-thirds expect most other people would want to try such a step, said the report issued Tuesday. Few expect such a radical idea to become reality, at least by 2050, although most of those surveyed expect other medical advances that could more gradually extend life expectancy, such as better cancer care. When asked about living to 120 or beyond, the survey found 51 percent of people said that would be bad for society. They worried about a strain on natural resources, and that such treatments probably would be available only to the rich rather than to everyone. What is the ideal life span? To most Americans, its between 79 and 100; the median answer was 90 years, Pew reported. In the U.S., a child born today can expect to live 78.7 years. Womens life expectancy is longer, 81 years, than mens, 76.2. With a rapidly graying population that is bringing concern about the growth of Alzheimers disease and an overburdened Medicare system, caution about the idea of one day living even longer may not be surprising. But longevity pioneer Cynthia Kenyon of the University of California, San Francisco, wonders if the public understands the real goal of such research, which is better health. Many of the experimental animals whose lives have been extended look and act far younger and are far healthier than their untreated counterparts of the same age, she said. It would be the equivalent of a 90-year-old person that you think is looking like a 45-yearold, Kenyon told The Associated Press. Because aging itself underlies the development of many chronic diseases as our bodies break down, the theory is that slowing the aging process might help keep people healthier for longer even if its never as dramatic as what has happened with animals. We are very interested in not only life extension, but extension of the health span, said Dr. Marie A. Bernard, deputy director of the National Institute on Aging, which pays for much of this research. Research into life extension began with the discovery that severely restricting calories in lab animals they regularly consume 25 percent to 30 percent less than normal makes them live longer. Remarkably, they also were healthier than their litter mates. That led to the discovery of various genetic alterations that control life span. Kenyons research, for example, found that altering a single gene doubled the life span of roundworms, which stayed healthy until near the end. Other researchers have discovered similar aging-related gene mutations in different species. What about people? Some research has found healthy centenarians are more likely to harbor similarly protective genes. The next step is to find medications that might somehow switch on those protective pathways, rather than drastic dieting or gene manipulation. A number of candidates have worked in animals. Just last month, NIA researchers reported that a low dose of the diabetes drug metformin improved the health and longevity of middle-aged mice. No anti-aging pill is ready to try in people yet. Aging specialists say for now, common-sense is the best medicine: Eat a healthy diet, maintain a healthy weight and exercise. Asked about the poll, graduate student Katie Lebling, 24, of Washington said good health is key to how long shed like to live: It depends on how happy I am, if I was able to move or if Im just sitting in a rocking chair. If good health was a given, others wouldnt mind living to 120. Im curious to see how things now would be then, said John Gold, 38, a San Francisco software engineer. Parent participation is vital and is reachable through the transportation department. Parent involvement is good when talking with the bus drivers, Farmer said. At the bus stop is not always a good time. If you have a question or concern, you can contact our office and we can get you in touch with the driver. It is difficult at the bus stop unless it is a brief thing. Students whose transportation changes from day to day cause confusion. One day they may go to the home bus stop and the next day to daycare, Farmer said. Communicating those changes is very important at the elementary level. The teachers are the ones who actually put the students on the bus. Contact the school to confirm where the child is to be. If I am a bus operator and only have the child one or two days a week, I may not know if he or she is supposed to be there or not. If the school puts them on then I trust that is where they are supposed to be. If you can, try to be as consistent as possible with your transportation and do not flip flop it all over the place because it becomes difficult for the school and bus operator. Know where your children are. Stay in touch with your older children when they get off of the bus in the evening, Farmer said. Check in; if you dont hear from them, call us. The sooner that we know that we need to be looking for them, the quicker we find them and the less stressful it is for everyone involved. Be proactive; know what your childs bus number is and who their bus operator is. Students should ride the bus for the first time in the morning. The bus driver sees that student get on at that stop and that is where they are supposed to be, Farmer said. When they show up at the bus in the afternoon, that is the first time the driver has seen them. They have to go by paperwork to know where to drop that student off and not by the recognition in the morning. If you drive them in, pick them up in the afternoon for the first couple of days. Let their first experience with the bus be in the morning. Farmer continued to ask drivers, parents and students to be patient with transportation for the first week or two of school. We always run late the first few days of school, she said. Most of our buses run two routes. So, they will run a middle or high school route and then they will double back to an elementary school. When we go to our middle and high schools, were trying to get those students on the bus. That takes time. The middle and high schools will dismiss 10 minutes early the first three days of school to allow us the extra time to get students on the correct bus. Inevitably that takes time and that starts us off late, which makes us late for the elementary schools. Because of this rippled effect, we could be 15 to 30 minutes late from leaving from the elementary schools on the first few days of school. Also, on the first day of school there is additional traffic, which affects the timing. Farmer said bus times can be confirmed by calling the back-to-school hotline at 352-637-2233. It instructs parents about transportation, bus stop locations, time, drivers name and bus numbers.

Associated PressHIALEAH On a sandy stretch of land between tree farms and cattle ranches, Edgar Abreu awaits his match: A black bull behind a red metal gate. The gate lifts and the bull runs. Abreu, a balding 57-year-old handyman, and another cowboy chase the animal on their horses. Abreu rides up alongside the bull, grips his hand around the tail and yanks the animal to the ground. The bull rolls over and comes to a rest on its stomach. Un punto! Francisco Palmero calls out on a bullhorn. One point. The crowd cheers. The scene is reminiscent of rodeos in countless Venezuelan towns, as well as some other parts of Latin America. But this tournament is being held at a ranch in Hialeah, about 10 miles from the Miamis towering condo and office buildings. The men on horseback are competing to represent the U.S. in a world championship in Venezuela later this year. For most of the cowboys, the U.S. is a second home. The majority are from Venezuela where coleo, as the sport is called, is a tradition. When they arrived in Florida, they organized rodeos much like the ones in the countries they left behind: Four men chased after two bulls for four minutes at a time, flipping them over as many times as they could. Musicians played llanera folk songs with harps, maracas, bass and Spanish guitars. Families came with their children. Not everyone applauded, however. At an event about 10 years ago, a bull fell and broke its leg. Animal rights activists clamored. They said the tradition wasnt a sport. It was cruelty. There was quite a public uproar about it, recalled Laura Bevan, Southern region director of the Humane Society of the United States. And the people organizing it just said that they were not going to do it anymore. The rodeos didnt entirely disappear, however. Three years ago, Palmero and a group of cowboys established the American Coleo Federation and tried to adapt the sport to meet U.S. animal welfare standards. Instead of four men, there would be two. Their time chasing the bull would be cut in half. The strip of land the bull ran through would be smaller and filled with plenty of sand to ensure a soft landing. And theyd use smaller bulls, less likely to be injured when they hit the ground, they said. The animal doesnt suffer, asserted Hector Ricardo, 43, a coleo champion. Animal rights groups are not convinced. Its quite clear these young bulls are distressed and get exhausted in the process of being tripped over and over again, said Adam Roberts, executive vice president of Born Free USA, an animal advocacy organization. I dont find that personally or professionally very sporting. But bull tripping isnt illegal, and the men who form the American Coleo Federation are determined to keep their sport alive in their adopted homeland. They held their most recent event on Independence Day weekend. The cowboys wore longsleeved, collared shirts emblazoned with the U.S. flag. And the event began with a recording of the U.S. national anthem. The United States has always been like the Cinderella of the competition, Palermo said. Were small but potent. And respected. About 20 cowboys competed for 12 spots to represent the U.S. at the international coleo championship in Venezuela this fall. Among them were Abreu, known to his friends as Popeye because of his bald head and muscular physique. Also competing was Gabriel Boracchi, 32, who came from Venezuela to the U.S. 12 years ago to study and now exports car parts and works in real estate. His girlfriend, Sandra Valencia, 27, watched nervously as he prepared for the first round. She was born in Colombia and had never been to a rodeo. Scary, she said, looking for a place to watch from the sidelines. Meanwhile, Juan Carlos Rodriguez, 56, originally from Cuba, assessed the competition. This is a risky sport, he said. I cant do what I did when I was younger. At the end of the first round, Boracchi had three points, Abreu two and Rodriguez none. Ricardos wife, clad in jeans and cowboy boots, pinned ribbons in the colors of the U.S. and Venezuelan flags on the backs of the cowboys each time they got a point for flipping the bull. The large crowd watched from under tents where plates of barbecued meat and boiled yucca were being served. Rhona Rojas and Joseph Duarte, both 34, came with their two sons, ages 2 and 6 months. Rojas, of Venezuela, said they brought them to learn a bit about the history of our country. At that moment, a bull fell near the railing close by to where she stood. It flailed on its back, its neck outstretched. She winced at the sight. Its like in bullfighting, her husband said. There are parts that we dont want to see. Legislature to have that individual voice and individual thinking because thats when you truly represent your constituents, Fasano said. Though his populist approach sometimes angered lobbyists and posed problems for other Republicans, Fasano quickly received praise Tuesday from lawmakers who posted Twitter messages. Congratulations for your appointment to Tax Collector! tweeted Rep. Steve Crisafulli, a Merritt Island Republican who is expected to become House speaker in 2014. Thank you for your service to the people of our great state. Fasano pursued the appointment, but he also has clashed in the past with Scott. State Rep. Jimmy Patronis, a Panama City Republican and staunch Scott supporter, humorously referred to that relationship in congratulating Fasano on Tuesday. Good luck Rep. Fasano! Im going to mail you a Lets get to work bumper sticker, Patronis tweeted, referring to a Scott campaign slogan. Fasano has drawn attention for his outspoken criticism of some powerful lobbies. For example, he frequently criticized property insurers for high premiums or a lack of available coverage for many of his constituents. Also, he criticized a 2006 law that has allowed electric utilities to collect hundreds of millions of dollars in advance from customers for nuclear projects. Duke Energy last week said it was scrapping plans for two new reactors in Levy County after collecting such money. During this years legislative session, Fasano drew headlines for bucking House Republican leaders and supporting the use of billions of dollars in federal Medicaid money to expand health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Fasano was the key player in an unusual fourhour debate on the House floor, though he wound up as the only House Republican who supported the idea. Its been almost 20 years (that Ive been in the Legislature) and the Florida Legislature has changed, Fasano said Tuesday. Or Mike Fasano has changed, or maybe its a combination of the two. At other times in his legislative career, however, Fasano helped lead Republican efforts on issues. For instance, more than a decade ago, he was a leader in a GOP effort to eliminate what was known as the intangibles tax on investors.

The Standard & Poors 500 index had its biggest drop since June 24. The S&P lost 9.77 points, or 0.6 percent, to 1,697.37. All 10 sectors in the S&P 500 fell. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 93.39 points, or 0.6 percent, to close at 15,518.74. The Nasdaq composite dropped 27.18 points, or 0.7 percent, to 3,665.77. American Eagle plunged 12 percent after the retailer slashed its earnings forecast in half late Monday, blaming weak sales. The company said cutting prices on clothing to lure in shoppers was hitting its profit margins. American Eagle dropped $2.40 to $17.57. Two of American Eagles rivals also slumped. Abercrombie & Fitch lost $2.09, or 4 percent, to $49.57. Urban Outfitters lost $1.20, or 3 percent, to $42.47. Most companies have reported better results during the second-quarter earnings season, but sales have slowed. A growing number of companies, including eBay and Marriott, have told analysts to lower their expectations for the coming quarters. The overall picture has left investors with little reason to cheer. Earnings have been moving up, just not spectacularly, said Cam Albright, director of asset allocation at Wilmington Trust Investment Advisors. Wed be much happier to see better revenue growth than what weve seen. Analysts expect companies in the Standard & Poors 500 index to post earnings growth of 4.4 percent in the second quarter. But revenue is on track to shrink 0.6 percent. Major indexes headed lower from the opening bell Tuesday, bottomed out around 11 a.m. then slowly recovered some of their losses. The Dow was down as much as 138 points. IBM fell the most in the Dow following reports that the company would require some workers to take time off this month as hardware sales slow. Credit Suisse also cut its rating on the company. IBM dropped $4.51, or 2 percent, to $190.99. In economic news, the government reported record U.S. exports in June and new data was released showing that home prices are rising sharply. The stock market remains near record highs. The S&P 500 index closed above 1,700 points for the first time last week and rose five of the past six weeks. The S&P a benchmark for most stock mutual funds, is up 19 percent this year, ahead of its 13 percent gain in 2012. Speculation that the Federal Reserve could start easing off its support for the economy helped knock commodity prices down Tuesday. Charles Evans, who votes on the Feds policy as president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, said the Fed could start scaling back its bond buying later this year. Gold fell $19.90, or 2 percent, to $1,282.50 an ounce, while silver sank 19.7 cents, or 1 percent, to $19.523 an ounce. Traders often buy gold in the belief that the Feds efforts would weaken the dollar and spur higher inflation, driving prices for gold and other precious metals higher. Hints from Fed officials that the bank may change course this year have battered commodity prices. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note was unchanged from late Monday at 2.64 percent. BusinessHIGHLIGHTS Disney Q3 net income nearly flat, revenue climbsBURBANK, Calif. Earnings at The Walt Disney Co. were nearly unchanged in the latest quarter, while revenue increased 4 percent thanks to a boost from Disneys theme parks and resorts business and cable networks such as ESPN. Disney said Tuesday that it earned $1.85 billion, or $1.01 per share, in the fiscal third quarter, which ended June 29. That compares with $1.83 billion, or $1.01 per share, a year earlier. Excluding onetime items, earnings were $1.03 per share in the latest quarter, surpassing Wall Streets expectations. Revenue was $11.6 billion, up from $11.1 billion.GE takes stake in First Solar; to share technologyNEW YORK GE and First Solar, Inc. will join their competing thin-film solar panel technologies in an effort to improve efficiency and decrease costs. The companies announced that First Solar will acquire General Electric Co.s technology for making thin-film panels. In return, GE will receive 1.75 million shares of First Solar stock. That represents $82 million, and 2 percent of First Solars outstanding shares. First Solar is the worlds largest producer of thin-film panels and among the worlds largest solar farm developers. GEs thin-film technology has performed well in lab tests, but is not manufactured on a large scale.CVS Caremarks Q2 profit climbs 16 percentCVS Caremark Corp.s second-quarter earnings jumped 16 percent, as the drug store operator and pharmacy benefits manager continued to reap bottom-line gains from generic drugs. But the Woonsocket, R.I., companys shares slid Tuesday afternoon after it also dropped the top end of its 2013 earnings forecast a penny below the Wall Street consensus due to a delay in share buybacks, which can boost earnings per share by lowering the share count. The stock had advanced about 27 percent so far this year and had set several alltime high prices this summer.From wire reports
OPINION Page A12WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7, 2013 Just the way you areThe discussion topic was love and got this AA thinking. Last nights topic at the meeting was love. People had many different descriptions and definitions. The way I see it, in our AA program, love is the same as grace. Some find grace in the eyes of God, some in their spouse and others, like myself, find grace in the members of Alcoholics Anonymous. Grace to me means loving someone even when I think they dont deserve it. I find that some of our members are harder to love than others. If you think you love everyone, maybe youre not going to enough meetings. Youll never find more of a mixed breed of Gods children than you will in the rooms of AA. We in AA love one another in a special way. Some have said that there are three different stages of love: eros love, based on strong feelings toward another; philos love, based on friendship between two people; and agape, which is totally selfless. In the latter, a person gives out love to another person even if this act does not benefit her/him in any way. I think most of the love that I express for my fellows is of the philos, or friendship, variety. For a few, agape love applies. And as for the other type of love, we wont go there in this article. Shaking hands and hugging is a way of letting others know that we are here as one family in sobriety. We in AA are not concerned what you have done or where you have been. We love you just the way you are. We are not here to fix any medical, family or legal issues. Our job is to help you help yourself. Just know that when we say we love you, it may not be the same as we love our children or spouse, but none the less there is a brand of love that applies and, if you will let us, we can love you into sobriety. That is love as I see it.Ernie Porter InvernessIn self-defenseWhen I was a child growing up in a rural area of southeast Missouri, I remember deer hunting season in our area. Many people would come in from the cities and sometimes goats, cows or other barnyard animals as well as hunters would be shot by accident. My dad used to say that if you want to murder someone, just take them hunting and accidently shoot them. Usually, nothing happed legally to the surviving hunter. We have it much easier in Florida. We dont even have to go into the woods to murder someone we dont like. We can just follow them around the neighborhood and harass them until they fight back. If the aggressor is some pudgy wimp carrying a gun, who isnt too good at fighting, he can just shoot the person who gets the better of him. Carrying a handgun gives some people the bravado to harass anyone who doesnt meet their approval. This is what George Zimmerman did in his neighborhood. He initiated the confrontation and shot the unarmed teenager who fought back, and then amazingly was found not guilty. If Martin had won the fight and killed Zimmerman, he would have had a legitimate self-defense plea.Ronald Lewis Inverness No, it was not the most excruciating thing ever seen on television. Weve seen worse. Weve seen Roseanne singing the national anthem, Magic Johnson hosting a talk show and Paris Hilton, existing. But if its not No. 1 on that list of god-awful TV, author Reza Aslans recent interview with Lauren Green of Fox News is surely in the top 10. Google it if you havent seen it. Or just ask some woman to rake her fingernails down a chalkboard for 10 minutes. Same difference. Over and over again, speaking in the honeyed, patient tone youd use to instruct a slow child, Aslan answers the question that has been put to him by reciting his bona fides. He is a historian. He is an expert on the New Testament. He is fluent in biblical Greek. He holds four degrees. He has spent 20 years researching the origins of Christianity. The study of religion is his job. And over and over again, doing her best imitation of Mike Wallace pinning miscreants to the wall (if Mike Wallace had shilled for a company of rightwing propagandists playacting at journalism) Green keeps bringing him back to what she regards as the central issue: Youre a Muslim, she informs him, so why did you write a book about the founder of Christianity? The book in question is Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, a search for the historicity of the itinerant rabbi who founded the biggest religion on Earth. On that basis, youd expect it to be controversial. Green, however, seems less vexed by the books content than by its authors faith. Why would you be interested in the founder of Christianity? she asks. And, Youre not just writing about a religion from a point of view of an observer. And, Youve been on several programs and never disclosed that youre a Muslim. To which Aslan replies that his religion is disclosed on the second page of the book and in every media interview hes ever done. It goes on like that for 10 cringe-inducing minutes. At some point, you find yourself drifting in a stupor of disbelief, amusing yourself by imagining how Green might have interviewed other authors in history: John Steinbeck, youre from California. Why did you write about people from Oklahoma? Tom Wolfe, youre no astronaut. Why did you write about astronauts? Alexis de Tocqueville, youre a Frenchman. Why did you write about the United States? Thats the subtext of Greens interview, after all, the idea that one must belong to a given tribe before one may write about that tribe. But of course, thats not quite what shes saying, is it? No, that stricture only applies if one is a Muslim. For all their professed abhorrence of so-called identity politics, it is for many con servatives an article of faith that if ones identity includes Islam, that fact trumps everything else: character, upbringing, beliefs, politics or fluency in biblical Greek. Think Glenn Beck asking a Muslim congressman to prove he is not in league with Americas enemies. Think Michele Bachmann accusing an aide to the secretary of state of terrorist ties. You are your tribe. More to the point, you are the worst iteration of your tribe, the scapegoat for all our fears of your tribe. So Foxs mugging of Aslan was an embarrassment, but hardly a surprise. The nation seems to have grown uncomfortably comfortable with the sort of thinking from which it proceeded. The encounter drove Aslans book to the top of the Amazon best sellers list, which is good news for him. But the better news is that he lives in a country where the right to follow any line of scholarship he wants is carved in stone, regardless of how he conceives God. There is a word for that: Freedom. Lauren Green should look it up.Leonard Pitts is a columnist for The Miami Herald, 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132. Readers may contact him via email at lpitts@ miamiherald.com.

Williamson You may differ with my choice, but not my right to choose. David S. Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARDGerry Mulligan ....................................publisherMike Arnold ..............................................editorCharlie Brennan ........................managing editorCurt Ebitz ..................................citizen memberMac Harris ................................citizen memberRebecca Martin ..........................guest memberBrad Bautista ....................................copy chief FOCUS ON STUDENTS Do not panic over districts grade drop For the first time in seven years, the Citrus County School District will become a B school district, thus jeopardizing the academically high-performing designation it proudly held as a longtime A district. To the students, parents, teachers and staff in our school system we say: dont panic. Similar downgrading occurred all over Florida due to tinkering with assessment systems by the Florida Department of Education. No one is happy with the result. In all of this, theres good news and good news. First, we now see widespread agreement that the school rating system is broken. Thats good. The entire issue of how single-letter school ratings are determined and assigned is taking center stage, partially due to events leading to former Florida Education Commissioner Tony Bennetts resignation. Again, the nation is looking at our state. Askance, mostly. A state-level Virginia education executive was recently quoted as saying, We are watching Florida and we are afraid. We often tell our lawmakers that if they look at states like Florida, theyll realize this is not a path we should be on. Ouch. But what about the other good news? Floridas system is so broken, and the reaction so scorching, that there is renewed focus on trying to fix it and get it right this time. We are all for accountability. Aristotle was correct in saying that the fate of empires depends upon education of our youth. Something so important must be carefully handled, and all those in the chain must be held accountable for its success. Successful businesspeople know that what gets measured gets done; the key is identifying the correct goal and using the correct measure. Its not happening. Unfortunately, Floridas school grading system has become an object lesson in how politics and money and moving targets can interfere in even the best-intentioned programs. Its so blatant that groups on opposite ends of the political spectrum are calling for change. Locally, administrators are wrestling with state-imposed mandates on public schools, while school board members are speaking out about inequities in the system. School administrative and instructional staff valiantly tries to keep the focus on students. They continue to monitor and work with students as individuals, whose achievements and challenges in learning growth need individual attention. Theres no argument that we must measure to ensure that were on the right track, at the individual student level as well as the system level. But a better approach would take into account factors that truly contribute to student success IRL, as the students themselves would say (in real life). Heres the question: What really prepares our youths to be good citizens, to get good jobs, to be productive and happy for the rest of their lives? Our state education leadership should be focusing on figuring that out, as well as on how to evaluate real progress toward those most important goals. THE ISSUE:The Citrus County School District dropped to a B level. OUR OPINION:Its about the testing system, not about the students.

You fail to totally recognize scallop season which falls between that area altogether and you give the manatees full credit for the tourism boom. When you can drive through town and see all the motels and restaurants full, boats and trailers all over parking areas, when the boat ramps are swamped, when the gas stations are full of boaters and when the traffic on the river has increased probably tenfold, I think they deserve some credit for the boom in tourism growth in that area and the money spent.

Knotts, traveled to town looking for new adventures. He stumbled across an area in southwest Levy County that immediately stimulated his creative juices. The feelings he thought had gone away with his retirement were back. This time, however, his vision was to share his rich and plentiful woods, hammocks, rivers and sinkhole ponds with his friends. And, occasionally, a trip into the Gulf. Knotts built his lodge for houseguests and named it after a favorite author and outdoorsman, Sir Izaak Walton. The locals began calling the unincorporated area Yankeetown, and it stuck. He entertained the likes of Henry Ford and Thomas Edison, along with Presidents Harding and Coolidge. More recent celebrities would include the great Ted Williams, an avid fly fisherman with a weakness for the chefs pan-fried grouper and blackberry cobbler. Perhaps though, the lodge can boast mostly about a royal visit from a king. In 1961, Yankeetown was chosen to host the filming of the movie Follow That Dream, featuring the king of rock n roll, Elvis Presley.

Pa. man charged with killing three Associated PressSAYLORSBURG, Pa. A disabled junk dealer feuding with local officials over his debris-strewn property packed a rental car with guns and ammunition before opening fire at a town meeting and killing three men, authorities said Tuesday. Rockne Newell, 59, had lost his property this year in a court fight over complaints that he lived in a storage shed, built an illegal culvert and used a bucket outside as a toilet. At his arraignment on homicide charges Tuesday morning, a judge asked Newell if he owned any real estate. They stole it from me. Thats what started all this, he replied. Newell allegedly used a Ruger Mini-14 rifle to blast a barrage of gunfire through a wall into the meeting room Monday night in Ross Township, about 85 miles north of Philadelphia, before entering the room and shooting a supervisor and four residents, two of whom survived. Newell then retreated to the car and picked up a revolver, authorities said. When he returned to the meeting room, the 5-foot-10, 240-pound suspect was tackled by two men and shot in the leg during the scuffle, officials said. I wish I killed more of them! Newell shouted when state Trooper Nicolas De La Iglesia arrived on the scene before 8 p.m., according to the troopers affidavit. Two men died at the scene and the third, Ross Township zoning officer David Fleetwood, died after being flown to Lehigh Valley Medical Center. Fleetwood, 62, also served as a supervisor in nearby Chestnuthill Township, the coroner said. Officials identified the slain residents as Gerard J. Kozic, 53, and James V. LaGuardia, 64, both of Saylorsburg. At the hospital an hour later, Newell told police he had gone to the meeting in hopes of finding the township officials in one place. He intended to shoot the solicitor and supervisors and thought that he would then be killed, police said in the affidavit. Newell was about to fire his .44 Magnum revolver when the townships parks and recreation director, Bernie Kozen, and resident Mark Kresh wrestled him to the ground, Monroe County Coroner Bob Allen said at a news conference. Two very courageous individuals positioned themselves in a way that they were able to jump on this subject as he came through the door, State Police Lt. Col. George Bivens said. This could have been much worse. The two survivors were released from the hospital, along with Newell. Newell didnt enter a plea at his arraignment on three homicide counts and two counts each of attempted homicide and aggravated assault. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Aug. 19. Associated PressSANAA, Yemen A suspected U.S. drone killed four alleged alQaida members Tuesday in Yemen, as the U.S. and British embassies evacuated staff amid reports of a threatened attack by the terrorist group. As Yemen bolstered security by sending tanks and troops into the streets of Sanaa, the capital of the impoverished country, militants shot down an army helicopter, killing all eight people aboard, the government said. Yemeni authorities have suggested that there were al-Qaida threats in recent days to multiple potential targets in the country, which has been thrust back into the forefront of the international fight against the terrorist network. Among those sites were foreign installations and government offices in the capital of Sanaa, as well as the strategic Bab al-Mandeb straits at the entrance to the Red Sea in the southern Arabian Peninsula. The State Department ordered nonessential personnel at the U.S. Embassy to leave the country. The department said in a travel warning that it had ordered the departure of non-emergency U.S. government personnel due to the continued potential for terrorist attacks, adding that U.S. citizens should leave immediately because of an extremely high security threat level. Britains Foreign Office also said it has evacuated all staff from its embassy due to increased security concerns. The Foreign Office said the staff were temporarily withdrawn to the U.K. on Tuesday. Yemens government criticized the evacuations in a statement from its embassy in Washington, saying the diplomatic withdrawal serves the interests of the extremists and undermines the exceptional cooperation between Yemen and the international community in the fight against terrorism. It insisted that its government has taken all precautions to ensure the security of foreign missions in Sanaa. The U.S. has temporarily shut down 19 diplomatic posts in the Middle East and Africa after the interception of a secret message between al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahri and Nasser al-Wahishi, the leader of the Yemen-based al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, about plans for a major terror attack, according to a U.S. intelligence official and a Mideast diplomat. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

Boy dies after serving as parents best manPITTSBURGH A terminally ill 2-year-old western Pennsylvania boy who served as his parents best man at their wedding last weekend has died, according to his mothers Facebook page and a family friend. Christine Swidorsky Stevensons Facebook post said Logan Stevenson died Monday night in her arms at the home she shared with the boys father, her new husband, Sean Stevenson. The couple live in Jeannette, about 25 miles east of Pittsburgh, and were wed Saturday at a ceremony at their home. The boy, who had leukemia and other complications, was dressed in a tan pinstripe suit and orange shirt for the wedding. His mother carried him on her shoulder, before he stood and was held by his grandmother, Debbie Stevenson, to witness the 12-minute ceremony.Mannings max sentence cut to 90 yearsFORT MEADE, Md. Army Pfc. Bradley Mannings possible sentence for disclosing classified information through WikiLeaks was trimmed from 136 years to 90 years Tuesday by a military judge who said some of his offenses were closely related. The ruling was largely a victory for defense attorneys, who had argued for an 80year maximum. Still, the 25year-old soldier could spend most, if not all, of his remaining years inside a prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. The sentencing phase of Mannings court-martial is in its second week. Man suspected of killing woman, taking kidsCAMPO, Calif. An Amber Alert was in effect early Tuesday for the two missing children of a woman whose body was found inside a burned rural house near the U.S.-Mexico border, and authorities said the man suspected of killing the woman may have abducted the kids. Authorities were trying to locate Hannah Anderson, 16, and Ethan Anderson, 8, whose mother, Christina Anderson, 44, was one of two people found dead by authorities sent to extinguish the fire Sunday night, a San Diego County sheriffs statement said. A second body, that of a child, was found dead in the rubble of the houses detached garage, but the identity and manner of death remained undetermined. Authorities who released the news of the deaths Monday night wouldnt say whether the body may have belonged to one of Andersons children. The suspect, James Lee Dimaggio, 40, owned the home in Boulevard, some 60 miles southeast of San Diego, and lived there alone, the sheriffs statement said.

Bernie Kozen Fort Hood trial begins Associated PressFORT HOOD, Texas The Army psychiatrist accused in the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood targeted fellow soldiers in a meticulously planned attack that included stockpiling bullets and researching Taliban leaders calling for jihad, a military prosecutor said Tuesday during the opening day of the longawaited trial. Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan spent time at a shooting range and purchased a pistol and extender kit to hold more ammunition before carrying out his plan to kill as many soldiers as he could while avoiding civilians, Col. Steve Henricks told jurors. The shooting, which killed 13 people and injured more than 30 others on the sprawling Texas military base, remains the deadliest mass shooting ever on a U.S. military installation. Henricks alleged that Hasan didnt want to deploy after getting his orders about three weeks before the shootings, and that he came to believe he had a jihad duty to murder to his fellow soldiers. But when it came time for him to speak, the 42-yearold Hasan who is acting as his own attorney countered prosecutors detailed portrait of the attack with a simple statement: The evidence will clearly show that I am the shooter. Hasan indicated he wanted to argue that he carried out the shooting to defend the Taliban from American attacks but the judge denied that strategy. Hasan wanted to plead guilty to several counts of murder and attempted murder, but military rules prevent guilty pleas in death-penalty cases. Prosecutors are pursuing a death sentence, which are often overturned in military courts. Westerners evacuated in Yemen Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan
Baseball/ B2 Golf/B3 Scoreboard/B4 TV, lottery/B4 Tiger looks to end longest major drought of his career starting Thursday at PGA Championship./B3 SPORTSSection BWEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE FSU football teams season ready to begin Fisher: Seminoles have chance to be very good Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher turned his attention Tuesday to finding leading roles for players who were part of the supporting cast on last years Atlantic Coast Conference championship squad. The Seminoles lost 11 players in the NFL draft and have to replace first-round draft pick EJ Manuel at quarterback, NCAA record-setting placekicker Dustin Hopkins and a trio of defensive ends. Fisher, however, believes he has the talent on hand to offset the personnel losses from a team that finished 12-2 and ranked No. 10 in the final poll. We have a chance to be a very good football team, Fisher said shortly before the Seminoles began preparation for their Sept. 2 opener against Pittsburgh. Im excited about this team to see some of these young guys take new roles. I like the experience weve got coming back. Fisher is particularly high on a linebacking corps led by seniors Telvin Smith and Christian Jones and a seasoned secondary anchored by senior Lamarcus Joyner. A very good group talent wise, Fisher said. Although redshirt freshman Jameis James stole the show in the spring game, Fisher claimed the quarterback position remains a tossup between James and redshirt sophomore Jacob Coker, whose scant five pass attempts represent the lone game experience among all of the quarterback hopefuls. Fisher wouldnt rule out using two quarterbacks during the season. If it helps us win, he said. All decisions are based on winning. Fisher also said 6-foot-6, 280pound Giorgio Newberry was moving from defensive end to tight end to shore up a position where Nick OLeary was the lone experienced player returning healthy. The depth on the offensive line was also dinged with the loss of Trey Pettis (transfer) and Dan Foose (injury). You cant predict injury, Fisher said. But youve got to have an idea when those things happen. And for the first time, the Seminoles head into a season without fear of losing practice time to the brutal August heat or late summer thunderstorms with a new indoor practice facility that Fisher had pushed for since arriving as Bobby Bowdens offensive coordinator in early 2007. Its Fishers program now lock, stock and indoor facility and he was anxious to get the players on the field for the first time Tuesday. Everybody right now has unproven things on their team, Fisher said. Were experimenting too. SPORTS BRIEFSDolphins Jones signs $29.3 million, 4-year dealDAVIE Miami Dolphins safety Reshad Jones signed a $29.3 million, four-year contract that includes $15 million guaranteed. Jones, a fifth-round draft choice by Miami in 2010, has started 30 games in his career, including every game last year. Last year he led the team with four interceptions and ranked fourth in tackles with 95, both career highs. I think I demonstrated last year Im one of the elite safeties in the game, Jones said Tuesday after the Dolphins announced the extension. This shows how much these guys trust me as a player and a person, Jones said. This takes the pressure off. I know where my home is the next couple of years. The deal includes a $5 million signing bonus.Jags Robinson trades Shipley for college numberJACKSONVILLE Former Michigan star Denard Robinson is wearing his college number again. Jacksonvilles offensive weapon, listed on the depth chart at four positions, switched from No. 29 to No. 16 on Tuesday and plans to wear it the rest of the season. Receiver Jordan Shipley had worn No. 16 since signing with the Jaguars last November. Shipley agreed to switch to No. 15 after receiver Taylor Price was waived Monday. Robinson and Shipley declined to reveal what kind of deal they brokered. In fact, they didnt even have to arrange the swap. Since both are represented by SportsTrust, their agents handled the details. Robinson said, It means a lot to me. ... I took it from my brother. He wore 16. That was my role model. I wanted to copy him.Yankees reliever Rivera reiterates hes retiringCHICAGO New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera insists hes still retiring at the end of the season. Baseballs career saves leader said Tuesday he will not reconsider even though he shows no signs of slowing down. Rivera said hes been asked that in every city and hopes this is the last time. He said theres no going back. At 43, Rivera has been as automatic as ever this season. He has 35 saves in 37 opportunities and a 1.56 ERA entering Tuesdays game against the Chicago White Sox. Rivera earned his second major league win in Chicago in 1995, when he was a starter and tossed eight shutout innings. The White Sox presented him with a framed scorecard from that game. From wire reports Associated PressMIAMI The Florida High School Athletic Association will review its policies on performance-enhancing drugs following an allegation that its athletes were among the customers of the shuttered clinic at the center of the baseball scandal. The FHSAA said it has no proof to substantiate the claims of former Biogenesis employee Porter Fischer, who has told The Associated Press and other media outlets in recent days that he saw the clinics operator give PEDs to high school players. But, as the state association sees it, even the mere suggestion that youngsters are involved with PEDs is reason enough to act. Its an issue that we have to address head-on, said Florida Sen. Bill Monford, a former school principal and superintendent. And quite frankly, in my opinion, this is not a fingerpointing exercise. Its truly an acknowledgment that weve got a problem and we also have a responsibility to address this issue. And we have to address it with vigor because if we dont, the lives of many of our student-athletes ... can be so negatively impacted. The announcement came one day after Major League Baseball disciplined 13 players, including Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees, for having ties to Biogenesis, a clinic accused of distributing banned performance enhancers. Fischer has said that the clinics operator, Anthony Bosch, sold PEDs to a number of high school athletes, and that he came forward with those allegations with hopes that law enforcement would take a deeper look into what the clinic did before its doors closed. The FHSAA said it read those claims, and the associations director called them a wake-up call. We have received no proof or no evidence, said Dr. Roger Dearing, the FHSAAs director. We dont know if the NFL or the NBA or the baseball league has, but its obvious to us that through the news coverage that there is an issue with the Biogenesis lab in South Florida. Rodriguez, who is appealing baseballs ruling, was suspended for 211 games for what baseball said were his links to Biogenesis. His high school coach, Rich Hofman, said he was disappointed but not necessarily surprised when he heard allegations of high schoolers getting PEDs from the clinic.

He looks ready to take the next step, NewsdaysBob Glauber said of the third-year quarterback who stepped in for the now departed Alex Smith and went 7-3 in leading the 49ers to the Super Bowl. A lot of losses from last years roster, noted NBC Sports Tony Dungy, but solid in all three phases.

All in all, it was the sort of stuff rivalries and high-drama playoff chases are made of. Except, in this particular case, Evan Gattis two-run single in the fifth inning and the six innings thrown by Teheran (9-5) while allowing one run combined to produce Atlantas season-high 12th consecutive win, padding their NL East lead to 14 1/2 games over Washington. Gattis big hit came off Gio Gonzalez (7-5), who pitched one night after Major League Baseball announced its Biogenesis investigation cleared the left-hander.National League Pirates 4, Marlins 3PITTSBURGH Josh Harrison homered leading off the bottom of the ninth, lifting the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 4-3 win over the Miami Marlins. Harrison sent a fastball from Miamis Mike Dunn (2-3) into the first row of seats in left-center field for his first career walk-off homer. Dunn had worked out of a bases loaded, no-out jam in the eighth. Bryan Morris (5-4) pitched a perfect top of the ninth for the victory. The Pirates have won three straight and are a season-high 24 games over .500 (68-44). Neil Walker had three hits for the Pirates. Andrew McCutchen had two hits, including a two-run double, for Pittsburgh. Donovan Solano went 3 for 5 for the Marlins but Miami left 11 runners on base.Mets 3, Rockies 2NEW YORK Eric Young made a diving catch to take a go-ahead hit away from Todd Helton in the fifth inning, then raced home with the tiebreaking run in the eighth, and the New York Mets beat the Colorado Rockies 3-2.

LaTroy Hawkins gave up a pair of two-out singles in the ninth before Ike Davis made a diving catch on Yorvit Torrealbas sinking liner foul down the first base line. It was Hawkins first save since May 6, 2012, for the Angels. Scott Atchison (2-0) pitched a scoreless eighth inning.Phillies 9, Cubs 8PHILADELPHIA Darin Ruf and Chase Utley sparked a three-run fifth inning to lift the Philadelphia Phillies to a 9-8 win over the Chicago Cubs. Utley, who had three hits, drove in the tying run on a triple to deep center field. He soon scored on a Domonic Brown ground out to give the Phillies the lead. Ruf added one more on a solo home run, his fourth of the season. Philadelphia tagged Edwin Jackson (7-12) for seven runs and 10 hits in six innings. Trailing 9-5 in the ninth, the Cubs scored three runs off Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon before pinch-hitter Thomas Neal flew out with men on the corners to end it. Kyle Kendrick (10-8) allowed five runs and six hits in six innings. He also had an RBI single.American League Tigers 5, Indians 1CLEVELAND Justin Verlander dominated for eight innings and Don Kelly hit a three-run homer off Justin Masterson, leading the Detroit Tigers to their 10th straight win, 5-1 over the Cleveland Indians. Verlander (12-8) allowed one run and four hits as the Tigers beat the Indians for 10th time in 11 games and opened a five-game lead over Cleveland in the AL Central. Kelly connected in the fifth inning off Masterson (13-8) and Miguel Cabrera picked up his 100th RBI as the Tigers improved to 11-3 against their nearest division rival. The Indians, who are 24-10 against the Centrals three other teams, have to hope they can win the next two over Detroit to split the series. To do that, theyll have to beat Doug Fister and Max Scherzer.White Sox 3, Yankees 2CHICAGO Chris Sale allowed one run while outpitching Hiroki Kuroda in to the eighth inning, and the Chicago White Sox beat the New York Yankees 3-2. Alex Rodriguez singled, walked, was hit by a pitch and lined out to center field after going 1 for 4 in his season debut Monday. The Yankees lost for the 13th time in 19 games after scoring a run in the ninth against closer Addison Reed. A-Rod was on deck when Alfonso Soriano struck out to end it with a runner on first. Reed gave up a single to a pinchhitter Ichiro Suzuki, who took second on defensive indifference and came around on Brett Gardners two-out single. But Reed finished for his 27th save in 32 chances.Twins 7, Royals 0KANSAS CITY, Mo.

The first big leaguer from Saskatchewan in more than 20 years, Albers at one point retired 15 straight. He was two outs shy of his third straight complete game dating back to Triple-A Rochester, and the first shutout in a big league debut since Detroits Andy Van Hekken did it in 2002. The Twins took most of the pressure off with a big night at the plate. Brian Dozier homered and drove in three runs, and Justin Morneau and Chris Colabello also went deep for the Twins.Interleague Reds 3, Athletics 1CINCINNATI Jay Bruce homered and made a run-saving catch on the warning track, and Mat Latos pitched into the eighth inning against Oaklands slumping lineup, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-1 victory over the Athletics.

Juniors ages 7 to 18 showed off their competitive skills each week at a different golf venue. Thanks to 7 Rivers Golf & Country Club, Southern Woods, Inverness Golf & Country Club, Brooksville Country Club and Oak Hills Golf Club for allowing juniors from Citrus, Pasco, Hernando and beyond to be guests at their clubs. These kids are at various stages of their golf lives. For some, this summer was their first taste of competing, while others are honing their skills for middle school and high school golf. For a handful of others, this was their last summer as a junior as they will move on to attend college. Here are just a few examples of what these junior golfers brought to my attention this summer. Kyle Cruze, who is 10 years old, saw the bright side in a bad situation. On the 10th tee (his first hole) at Southern Woods, he hit his tee shot off to the right into tall grass and woods. He could not find the ball and had to come back to the tee and take a stroke and distance penalty. I thought I should console him after all he was likely going to have a big number on his first hole. As it turned out he wasnt upset one bit he was happy that he would not have to hit out of the woods. He went back to the tee and hit a great shot right down the middle of the fairway. He didnt win his age division on this day but he had a winning attitude. I was reminded that Kyle saw the glass as half full. Matt Allen is a talented 17-year-old golfer who is also an accomplished bowler and tennis player. What impresses me about Matt is his belief in his ability. There is a balance between being obnoxious and being confident. Matts got it. This belief will help him succeed in sports and whatever career path he chooses. Kyle Velsaco, 16, has been described as a junior with potential. Kyle worked hard on his golf game this summer and saved his best round for the seasonending Tournament of Champions. Kyle taught us that perseverance pays off in the long run and practice does make a difference. Skylar Muscianese is a 14-year-old girl who finished in second place in her age division seven times this summer. Learning how to win comes with time and experience; Skylar reminds us that steadiness and consistency while not always flashy is still important on the road to winning. Tyler Bertoch, 15, was the top-ranked player in his age division. Tyler was paired with another golfer at the 7 Rivers tournament, who at the time, was struggling to break 100. Some worried that Tyler would be offended to play with someone who was not at his skill level. As it turned out, the two enjoyed playing in the same group together and a friendship was formed. These two juniors remind us that friendship and competition can go hand in hand. While I am supposed to be the one teaching these juniors about golf, they seem to be teaching me a few things: important lessons that all of us were taught along the way yet sometimes need to be reminded of.Marion Walker is the general manager at Seven Rivers Golf and Country Club in Crystal River.

Marion WalkerMOVE WITH MARION Associated PressTiger Woods hits off the 15th tee Tuesday during a practice round for the PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club in Pittsford, N.Y. Woods poised to end longest stretch without major Associated PressPITTSFORD, N.Y. Tiger Woods is leaving nothing to chance in his last chance this year to win a major. Fresh off a seven-shot victory at a World Golf Championship his fifth win of the season Woods showed up at Oak Hill late Monday afternoon and spent most of his time chipping and putting, trying to learn the nuances of the greens. Remember, his failure to adjust to the greens is what derailed him at the British Open two weeks ago. He also spent time with Steve Stricker talking about putting, which must have been a daunting sight for the other players. The last time Stricker gave him some putting tips was in early March, and Woods went on to win three of his next four tournaments. The stakes are higher than usual for him at the PGA Championship. This isnt the first time Woods has gone into the final major trying to make sure his season doesnt end without one. One difference from previous years is that Woods now is piling up wins just about everywhere except the majors. The Bridgestone Invitational was his fifth win of the year. Only twice in the last 30 years has a player had at least that many PGA Tour wins in a season without a major Woods in 2009 and Woods in 2003. For someone who has been stuck on 14 majors the last five years, Woods didnt sound like he was in panic mode. I think winning one major championship automatically means you had a great year, he said Tuesday after playing nine holes and spending even more time in the practice area, fine-tuning a game that already is in great shape. Even if you miss the cut in every tournament you play, you win one (major), youre part of history. This year, I think its been a great year so far for me, winning five times, he said. And you look at the quality of tournaments Ive won The Players and two World Golf Championships in there thats pretty good. It used to be major or bust for Woods, but when asked if he had adjusted his standards during this five-year drought, Woods offered a simple, No. Still a great year without a major? Yeah, Woods said, offering nothing more than a smile. Even so, he conceded that the 15th major has been tougher to get than he would have imagined. So much has transpired since that U.S. Open playoff victory at Torrey Pines in 2008 reconstructive surgery on his left knee that wiped out the rest of the 2008 season; revelations of multiple extramarital affairs at the end of 2009 that led to divorce and cost him millions in corporate endorsements; more injuries that forced him to skip two majors in 2011. The very thing that irritates him about his recent record in the majors is what gives him hope he keeps giving himself opportunities. Ive had my opportunities there on the back nine on probably half of those Sundays for the last five years, where Ive had a chance and just havent won it, Woods said. But the key is to keep giving myself chances, and eventually Ill start getting them. The traditional, tree-lined East Course at Oak Hill can present the appearance of Firestone, where Woods won for the eighth time last week. The difference is the greens on the Donald Ross design, which tend to slope severely to the front. The rough is thicker than usual, not nearly as severe as Merion, but enough to get players attention to hit whatever club is necessary off the tee to keep it in the short grass. Woods tied for 39th and never broke par when the PGA Championship was last held at Oak Hill in 2003, though thats a pretty small sample to argue if this course suits him. Remember, he was finishing his first full year without a swing coach. And while he won five times that year, Woods won only one tournament over the last six months. He is back to No. 1 in the world by a mile. He is the favorite at every major, even though hes gone 17 majors without winning. He is the center of attention, and that only ramps up when he arrives fresh off a seven-shot win. I think Tiger is a factor no matter what even coming in not with that kind of form, Masters champion Adam Scott said. Hes been up there in majors recently and just has not finished it off. But, obviously, he put it all together last week at a venue hes extremely comfortable with, so I dont know that Tigers confidence is ever really down. Its hard to imagine when youve won 80 times or something. Hes obviously going to be feeling good about where his game is at. But this week is a new challenge, as it is for everyone, Scott said. And we all start from the same point on Thursday. Its not getting any easier at the majors. For the first time in 25 years, the major champions were three players who were among the top 10 in the world Scott at the Masters, Justin Rose at the U.S. Open and Phil Mickelson at the British Open. I think that having Tiger win last week is great because I cant remember the last time somebody won the week before a major and then went on and won, Mickelson said, waiting for the room to catch up to his wisecrack. That would be Mickelson, who won the Scottish Open the week before his British Open win. Woods had been the last player to do that an eight-shot win at the Bridgestone Invitational in 2007, followed by the PGA Championship at Southern Hills. This will be the 20th time that Woods goes into a major having won in his previous tournament. And while he has won four of those majors the U.S. Open in 2000, Masters in 2001 and PGA Championship in 2006 and 2007 only Mickelson (five) and Ernie Els (four) from his generation have won that many majors in a career.

Receiving one first-place vote each are the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens and the Seahawks. How do you beat them at home, they have the 12th man? Edwards asked of Seattle, the team he had No. 1 on his ballot. The Atlanta Falcons are third with 323 points, one point ahead of Seattle. Rounding out the top 10, Green Bay is fifth, followed by Baltimore, Houston and New England tied at No. 7, Cincinnati and Indianapolis. There are high hopes again in Atlanta. The Falcons turned Matt Ryan into a $100 million quarterback with a contract extension, tight end Tony Gonzalez was lured out of retirement and a top running back was brought in from St. Louis. The Falcons have a Super Bowl-ready passing attack. They hope Steven Jackson can give them a Super Bowl-ready rushing attack, Rick Gosselin of theDallas Morning News said. Adds Charean Williams of theFort Worth Star-Telegram: Falcons should have a huge chip on their shoulder. No one is talking about them. The Jacksonville Jaguars, one of eight teams with new coaches this season, are ranked last picked 32nd by six of the voters. A year ago, the Colts started 32nd with rookie quarterback Andrew Luck but made the playoffs and finished 10th exactly where they start in the preseason rankings. TOP GUNSContinued from Page B1
EDUCATIONSection CWEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Inside:County proclaims Purple Heart Recognition Day/ C4 Eryn WorthingtonSCHOOL ERRANDS a non-traditional students guide to going back to college oing back to school as an adult can be daunting, terrifying and perhaps even overwhelming. What if you dont know all of the answers? What if you are the oldest in the classroom? Often, adults are apprehensive about not fitting in, time management or even remembering how to study. The non-traditional student who is returning to school after years in the working world may worry about balancing work and home responsibilities with daily loads of homework. Whether your goal is to make a career change by earning your bachelors degree or advancing your education to a masters degree, going back to school may prove to be a lesson in time management, sacrifice and prioritizing. According to College of Central Florida reports, 41.8 percent of attendees during the 2011-12 school year were over the age of 25. Therefore, evidence shows it doesnt matter how old you are or how long its been millions of adults are taking the steps with you.

Stepping into some big shoes My inbox is overflowing with back-to-school pitches everything from how to pack fun Disneyanimated sandwich lunches to calculators fashioned like Xbox controllers. (The former sounds like an expensive Disney ride to unhealthy choices if you asked me.) Every year, the back-to-school stretch has a thrilling, but familiar, ring to it, since school children are anxious to meet their teachers and see if their best friends are in the same class. For education reporters, it can be tough finding fresh-butvital angles especially on turf already well-covered. Recently, the education reins were released carefully (and with perhaps a little hesitation) to me. Reporter Mike Wright deeply enjoyed the weekly privilege of walking down the hallways of schools and witnessing the creations borne by Citrus County students. When he wasnt out chasing the news, he would be in the office commenting on how much he loved writing about students, whose creativity evolved in front of his eyes. He would smile from ear-to-ear, like a child seeing a chocolate chip cookie. I was informed by many that I had big shoes to follow. I do have big feet for a lady size 9 and I will continually strive to stretch my feet to follow in Mikes steps as I begin my journey as the new education reporter at the Chronicle. (I wonder how long I will be considered new before I am the old education reporter. Since I am 29 and holding, I think I like the phrase seasoned education reporter better.) Just like new teachers in the classroom, I am excited and anxious. Last May, school board member Thomas Kennedy escorted me to various schools and introduced me to principals, teachers, staff, parents and students those who make up a complete school community. Education has always been an anchor in my life, and not just because of all of my schooling. My mother was a school bus operator in Illinois, which she thought kept me out of trouble. And my father was what they called back in the 1990s a computer professor at a community college. So I understand its importance. Also, I am a mother of a fifthgrader. I enjoy volunteering in his class and always jump on the train immediately to chaperone his field trips. However, when Thomas escorted me throughout the schools, my eyes were exposed to the differences being made. I took my mother glasses off and found a clear pair of professional contact lenses. There was no sitting in a straight line, raising your hand and waiting for the teacher to call your name. Students were in small groups, interacting with one another on the iPad, directly monitored by the teacher. Or they were outside sitting criss-cross applesauce on the ground while a student launched his or her rocket. Because of this tour, reporting on education will no longer be complex, but an assignment I am looking forward to, because I can grow and learn along with the students. Good luck to Mike as he continues his dynamic investigative reporting on other assignments. Thank you for the golden knowledge you have shared and I promise to bring fair, neutral education reporting while Feature content by Eryn Worthington See SCHOOL/ Page C2

SCHOOLContinued from Page C1 Associated PressIOWA CITY, Iowa College students consider the University of Iowa the nations best party school, even though Iowa City has tried to make its famous bar scene less hospitable to underage drinkers. The Princeton Review bestowed Iowa with the top ranking Monday on a list determined by 126,000 students in a nationwide survey. Rounding out the Top 5 are: University of California, Santa Barbara; the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; West Virginia University and Syracuse University. The organization also released its stone-cold sober schools list led again this year by Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah; and followed by Wheaton College in Wheaton, Ill. Officials in Iowa City arent celebrating the ranking, which comes after theyve made recent strides in the battle against binge drinking on campus and downtown. University of Iowa spokesman Tom Moore said The Princeton Review gets some things right, by describing Iowa as an affordable Big Ten university with students who are both studious and social. That indicates they are balancing their academic responsibilities with their social pursuits, he said. The rankings are based on surveys in which an average of 333 students per campus are asked 80 questions about a range of subjects in the last three school years. Its methodology uses a five-point scale, allowing for school-to-school comparisons. Universities routinely dismiss the rankings as unscientific and invalid, while praising the free publicity that comes along with positive ones. For instance, Emerson College is likely to embrace its ranking Monday as the most LGBTfriendly school, and the University of Mississippi will certainly tout its most beautiful campus designation. Packed Iowa City bars blaring dance music, off-campus house parties and tailgating before Hawkeye football games are as much a part of Iowas culture as the cornfields that surround the city. Fraternities and sororities also contribute to the party atmosphere. But the No. 1 spot seems out of step with national data released this year showing fewer Hawkeyes are drinking and engaging in high-risk drinking. The percentage of Iowa students who reported drinking in the last 30 days (75 percent) was the lowest in 20 years of studies, even if it was above the national average. Policy changes have scaled back Iowa Citys bar scene, and a 2010 ordinance requiring customers to be 21 to enter bars instead of 19 is credited with reducing drinking and crime. Once popular watering holes such as Vitos and One Eyed Jakes have closed, replaced by an indie movie theater and a nice restaurant. We are continuing to work to change the culture on our campus by educating students to only consume alcohol in a legal, safe and responsible manner, and those efforts are achieving results, Moore said. The No. 3 party school sprawls across parts of two cities Urbana and Champaign, Ill. and in both, students younger than 21 can legally enter bars. In Champaign, where most of the bars are located, the minimum age is 19; in Urbana, its 18. The campus party reputation is enhanced by a single annual event, Unofficial St. Patricks Day or, simply, Unofficial when thousands of students and others converge for a day of drinking at parties and in bars. Local police ticket hundreds every year, and some city leaders have tried to limit Unofficial by restricting bar operating hours and taking other steps, with little or no success. The Princeton Review senior vice president Robert Franek said its lists are based completely on students opinions, and that Iowas ranking does not diminish the Reviews great respect for the schools academics or progress its made regarding alcohol issues on campus. Associated PressA pedestrian mall is filled with people as bars empty following last call in Iowa City, Iowa. The Princeton Review named the University of Iowa as the nationss best party school Monday on a list determined by 126,000 students in a nationwide survey. City officials arent celebrating the ranking after years of battling a binge-drinking problem Ark. AG: School must name teachers in gun program Associated PressLITTLE ROCK, Ark. An Arkansas school district that trained more than 20 teachers and staff to carry concealed handguns on campus through a program that faces questions over its legality was wrong to make secret the names of the employees, the states top attorney said Monday. Attorney General Dustin McDaniel said in an advisory opinion that the Clarksville School District was incorrect to withhold the names of the employees it had trained to work as volunteer, armed security guards. McDaniel last week said the state board in charge of regulating private investigators was wrong to license the western Arkansas district as a private security firm under a little-known law the school had used to arm its employees. In response to KHBS-TV, a northwest Arkansas station that had requested the names of the employees Clarksville had trained for its Emergency Response Team, McDaniel wrote that the information wasnt exempt from the states open records law. David Hopkins, Clarksvilles superintendent, said he wanted to discuss the opinion with the districts attorney before deciding whether to release the names. The district approved the program to arm teachers and staff in response to the school shooting in Newtown, Conn. Practice air-powered handguns sit on a teachers desk in a classroom at Clarksville High School in Clarksville, Ark.Associated Press Send submissions to email@example.com.

A Force at SeaMeet the U.S. Coast Guard This week, the United States Coast Guard celebrates its 223rd birthday! The Mini Page spoke to a Coast Guard historian to find out more about this important branch of the U.S. military.A costly war Our young countrys Revolutionary War left the government with many unpaid bills. Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton was looking for ways to collect money. He thought a force on the seas could help the U.S. collect tariffs and customs fees (money from ships from other countries bringing goods to the United States) and prevent smuggling. In 1790, the Department of the Treasury established the U.S. Revenue Cutter* Service. Until 1797, when the first U.S. warships were launched, the Revenue Cutter Service was our only armed force on the seas. As time went on, the Revenue Cutter Service began doing other jobs, including protecting the environment, providing security for our coasts and serving during wartime.*A cutter is a light, fast coastal patrol boat.Becoming the Coast Guard The Revenue Cutter Service also helped ships in distress. During the mid-1800s, many ships crossed from Europe with immigrants aboard. The Revenue Cutter Service helped save people whose ships had gone down. In 1878, Congress set up the U.S. Life-Saving Service. This civilian service manned lifesaving stations along the coasts to help survivors of shipwrecks. In 1915, the Revenue Cutter Service and the Life-Saving Service were joined together to form the U.S. Coast Guard. Today, it is part of the Department of Homeland Security during peacetime. During war, the Coast Guard becomes part of the Department of the Navy.Coast Guard missions Do you know what a mission is? It is an important assignment, or job. The Coast Guard has 11 missions: and coasts coming into the U.S. environment Coast Guardsmen from the Coast Guard Station in Gulfport, Miss., rescue a kayaker. The kayaker contacted the Coast Guard after his kayak overturned.Coast Guard photo by Petty Officer 2nd Class Jason Oyler Words that remind us of the U.S. Coast Guard are hidden in the block below.

Coast Guardsmen try to show good moral behavior in everything they do. They are loyal. Respect Coast Guardsmen treat each other fairly and work as a team.

These structures help sailors signals of lights, and during the day by looking for each lighthouses shape and distinct paint pattern. They also warn of dangerous areas in the water. One of the most important jobs of the Coast Guard is to maintain our nations lighthouses. The Coast Guard got this job in 1939. Today, all lighthouses are automated, or run by machines except one. The Boston Light, which was built in 1783 and is the oldest lighthouse site in the United States, still has a lighthouse keeper who lives on the property and takes care of the lighthouse.Safety on the water The U.S. Coast Guard Boating Safety Division works to keep people safe and alive while enjoying boating. While boating can be really fun, it also can be dangerous. The Coast Guard works with boaters to prevent accidents and make sure people are obeying the laws. For instance, in an accident, you are six times more likely to drown if you are not wearing a life jacket than if you are. Breaking the ice Imagine trying to make an important delivery with your bike. But everywhere you turn, deep mud stops you in your tracks. This same problem happens to ships trying to deliver their loads in northern areas, where cold weather causes ice to form. Coast Guard icebreakers help by moving ahead of other ships, breaking up ice and creating a lane so that vessels can move through the sea or Great Lakes without being damaged.

For example, Coast Guardsmen help with national security through work against terrorism. The Coast Guard monitors shipments of cargo before they even reach U.S. shores and inspects cargo in ports. The Coast Guard also helps out during natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina, Superstorm Sandy and other natural disasters. The Mini Page thanks Dr. Robert Browning, U.S. Coast Guard historian, for help with this issue.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST7, 2013 C5CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Ajay Devgan, an Indian film actor, director and producer, said, By getting into distribution and production, I am actually widening my base. Many less-experienced players do not pay as much attention to hand distributions as they ought. In todays deal, South read the endposition well by counting out the West hand. North had to open one diamond because one-no-trump would have shown only 12-14 points. South was also caught by their system. Two diamonds would have been an inverted minor-suit raise, showing a stronger hand; and three diamonds would have been pre-emptive, indicating a weaker, more distributional hand. So South compromised with one no-trump. Against three no-trump, West led the heart 10. To encourage East to continue hearts, South called for dummys king. As declarer hoped, East won and returned a heart, hoping his partner had the queen. South won, played a club to dummys ace, then ran diamonds, ending in his hand. West discarded the spade eight, three clubs and one heart. East threw one heart and one spade. When declarer next led a club and West played the 10, South was confident that West had started with 3-5-0-5 or 3-4-0-6 distribution. Since the former was more likely, both mathematically and because West would have probably led a club with six of them, declarer called for dummys king. Easts queen dropped, and South claimed nine tricks. Yes, West should have kept two clubs, but that is easier said than done when having winners in another suit.

Two of my children are grown and on their own, and my youngest currently lives with my ex-husband overseas. My mother is now in her 70s and has many medical problems, lives alone and rarely leaves the house. I am also in a longdistance relationship with a man from my childhood who lives near my mother. I am planning to move back to my home state to help my mother and also pursue this relationship. However, I am torn between moving back there and being able to see my children, who live in various places. It breaks my heart for my mother to be all alone, and I know I am running out of time to have her in my life. I also feel this man is the one, and I want to be with him. Annie, I spent nearly 30 years caring for my kids. I plan to see them every few months and create a visitation schedule for my son to be with me. Am I being selfish to move away? Torn Between Kids, Parents and Boyfriend Dear Torn: Absolutely not. You arent abandoning young children. Your kids no longer live with you, so you are free to go where you wish. As long as you can visit your children and work out a time for your youngest to be with you, you are under no obligation to remain in your current home. You have spent 27 years taking care of your kids, and now you are quite unselfishly going to take care of your mother. You deserve to also take care of yourself. Dear Annie: I recently invited some friends to my home for an informal Sunday supper. Weve known one another for 10 years and usually go out to restaurants. This is the first time weve had them over to our home. Since then, I have not received any kind of invitation from them. Worse, one of them recently said they had such a good time that we should do it again. But no one volunteered to use their home. Someone suggested I do it. I have done a lot of entertaining in the past, and going over my guest lists, I realize that very few people have returned the favor. Before my husband died last year, he said flat out that he was tired of entertaining people who do nothing for us in return. One of our neighbors was invited twice to our home, and I have yet to be inside her house. Is reciprocity some old social rule that no longer exists? Still Waiting Dear Still: No, but many people no longer feel obligated to follow any social rules at all. We think your particular problem is home entertainment. Too many people are embarrassed by the condition of their houses or by their cooking skills. They dont realize that their friends arent interested in comparing furniture and appetizers. They simply want to enjoy the company. The solution for you is to entertain in your home only those who will reciprocate, and socialize with the rest in neutral settings such as restaurants. Dear Annie: Too Good of a Cook complained that her eight grown children and grandchildren visited often but never offered to help with the groceries or cooking. My parents owned a vacation home, and each year, the family gathered for one long holiday weekend. It was not fair for our parents to host all of the families and feed them, as well. To ensure that everyone had a nice vacation and still contributed their fair share, each family was responsible for one day of meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner. That meant they also had to shop, prepare, cook, serve and clean up. This worked well for many years. Our parents have passed, but those were great years with warm memories and tasty meals.
