There will be a public meeting Thursday, Jan. 5, in Lecanto to discuss the issue, which will be decided later that month by the district governing board. The Southwest Florida Water Management District, commonly known as Swiftmud, is evaluating the 5,483 acre southwest Citrus property for hunting, which is currently not allowed on a regular basis. The evaluation is part of a program looking at eight Swiftmud tracts in two sets of four for hunting use or expanded hunting. The tracts being evaluated with Chassahowitzka, one each in Marion, Sumter and Hernando counties, are: the Lake Panasoffkee (non-wildlife management area), the Halpata Tastanaki Preserve (west of State Road 200), and the Weekiwachee Preserve properties. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) would be responsible for the hunting in the designated areas. The Chassahowitzka Camp Ground that Citrus County manages on the Chassahowitzka tract at the headwaters of the Chassahowitzka River would get a buffer zone of about 137 acres, according to a preliminary report. Any hunting use would have to be sensitive to campground management concerns, which would be coordinated with the county. While the county has no position on the issue, Parks and Recreation Criteria being used to evaluate more Swiftmud lands for potential hunting opportunities: The FWCs ability to manage hunts. Budget impacts. Adjoining land uses. Internal infrastructure. Security challenges. Sufficient access. Sufficient acreage. Sustainability. Balancing demand. Regional demand/ adjacency. Resource management/ecological conditions. Initial properties being reviewed. A meeting to address the possibility of expanded hunting in the Chassahowitzka area is slated for 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 5, at the Lecanto Government Building. Water district mulls expanded huntingTO HUNT OR NOT TO HUNT See HUNTING / Page A4 C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterTwelve people were like pallbearers on a wet Monday in Crystal River as they moved a dead manatee onto a trailer. It was a struggle. She is a big female 11 feet long, said Ivan Vicente, visitor services specialist at Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. It was somber, too. Its too bad. She could have had some calves, said Capt. Mike Dunn of Crystal River. He and his wife, Capt. Stacy Dunn, helped staff with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) retrieve the body of the manatee. Later, Vicente found more information about the manatee. The details sounded like a eulogy. Her name was Griselda, Vicente said. She was first identified as an adult in November 1977. She was sighted with her first calf in 1978. The last time she was seen with a calf was in April 2009. She has had 12 calves reported. She was last captured for a health Large manatee found dead MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Members of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and volunteers work to attach straps around a dead manatee named Griselda on Mond ay afternoon in Crystal River. The animal died from an apparent boat strike, according to those at the scene. A necropsy will be performed t o determine the exact cause of death. Boat strike suspected; creature has been tracked for more than 30 years Crews work to roll Griseldas body onto a sling Monday afternoon near a canal that leads to the Crystal River. See MANATEE / Page A2 M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS A new law giving the Citrus County Hospital Board broader ability to provide charity health care to residents is nearly five months old, with little said about the next step. Board Trustee Debbie Ressler and Chairman Michael Smallridge say they hope to have more conversation about offering health care programs to the countys poor and lowincome. At present, the board of trustees and Citrus Memorial Health Foundation are anxiously awaiting a ruling from Leon County Circuit Court Judge Jackie Fulford on the constitutionality of a part of a new law which gives trustees controlling interest in the hospital. The ruling is expected sometime in December and the losing party is all but certain to appeal. Only one section of the new law, which took effect July 1, is in dispute. Other sections of the law allow the hospital board to contract for services with the Citrus County Health Department and with private physicians. Smallridge said he has some ideas but he declined to say what they are. The public will be seeing some stuff very shortly, he said. There are a couple of things Im working on. Im still gathering facts and details. Discussions to partner with the health department and Citrus County government for a mobile health clinic were taken off the table while the hospital boards litigation continues. The plan included having the hospital board spend about $500,000 to buy a bus and furnish it with medical equipment. The bus would be owned by the county and staffed by the health department. Smallridge said he now wonders whether the bus is necessary, because charity organizations are planning clinics in southwest Citrus County and Hernando. Before we go forward and put time and money into a mobile unit, I want to make sure the need is still there, he said. Im not saying the issue is dead, but CMHS trustees eye charity care Mobile care clinic might be reconsidered See CHARITY / Page A2 Associated PressPARIS European leaders rushed Monday to stop a rampaging debt crisis that threatened to shatter their experiment in a common euro currency and devastate the world economy as a result. In a measure of how rapidly the peril has grown, ideas unthinkable even three months ago were being seriously considered, including having sovereign nations cede control over their budgets to a central European authority. World stock markets, glimpsing hope that Europe might finally be shocked into stronger action, had one of their best days in weeks. The Dow Jones industrial average in New York rose 300 points. In France, stocks rose 5 percent, a remarkable move. More relevant to the Europe: Leaders try to craft plan to avoid collapse Stocks rise on Wall Street. Page A7 Obama, European leaders in talks.

Meek, a Republican from Beverly Hills, is serving his first term in office. Although county commissioners must reside in their districts, they are elected to office by voters countywide. Officials issue rabies alertOCALA Health department officials have issued a rabies alert in Marion County. Authorities said Monday an infected horse prompted the alert, which began Nov. 20. The Orlando Sentinel reported the horse was found in an area about 15 miles northwest of Ocala. Health officials advise residents to avoid any contact with free-roaming animals. They say pet food should not be left outside and people should make sure their pets rabies vaccinations are current. The Sentinel reported a rabies alert is also in effect for parts of Seminole County after three raccoons tested positive. NEWS BRIEFS INSIDE From staff and wire reports
there is just not an immediate need for it. Ressler, a registered nurse who worked four years on-call at Citrus Memorial hospital before her appointment to the board of trustees in 2009, said trustees Chief Operating Officer Vickie LaMarche is meeting with health care organizations to see what type of charity care is needed. On another front, Ressler is pushing for the board to move its monthly meetings to someplace more public and spacious. The board now meets in a cramped conference room at attorney Bill Grants law office in Inverness. Ressler said she and LaMarche will bring to the board at its December meeting suggestions for alternative meeting sites. My whole focus is to make it more readily accessible to the public, she said. Meeting in an attorneys office can be a tad intimidating to people. Id like to have us in a more public environment.

Vicente explained that the manatee was identified through the U.S. Geological Survey Manatee Photo-Identification Database, which has indexed manatee scar patterns for tracking them. Cathy Beck, wildlife biologist with the USGS in Gainesville, identified Griselda, and said propeller scars on her upperleft dorsum were new since April 2009. Griselda was found in the canal that accesses Three Sisters Springs. Even getting her to shore was not easy, as she was surrounded by other manatees. FWC staff used ropes to move the animal into a position where the body could be pulled up on the canal bank by a truck backing up. Then they attached solid straps that held up to the strain of hauling the animal onto land. Plywood sheets helped slide the big body. Vicente estimated the manatee weighed about 1,000 pounds, as it was waterlogged. It could have been dead as long as two days. Using the straps, eight FWC staff rolled the body on to a groundsheet to drag it up the trailer ramp. It took a dozen people counting to three and lifting together about 15 times to make the transfer. The manatee body was covered for a two-hour drive. A necropsy will be conducted today at the Florida Fish & Wildlife Research Institute, Marine Mammal Pathobiology Laboratory in St. Petersburg to determine the cause of death. We will have the full details from the necropsy next week, Vicente said. The sad situation is she was definitely struck by a boat. Whether the boat caused the mortality or not will be known next week. Vicente said the scars alone could not determine whether a boat strike caused the death. Marks dont mean a thing because propeller scars typically heal, Vicente said. Its the blunt trauma from the bow of a boat that kills a manatee. Other factors could have caused the death. The manatee could have been drowned accidentally during mating activity. Or she could have died through age. If the manatee died as a result of being hit by a boat, Vicente said it would be the first such death in Kings Bay in more than a year, but not in the county. He would like boaters to be aware of the numbers of manatees increasing in county waters. Manatees are starting to come in as it gets cold, Vicente said. We have anywhere from 50 to 100 in Kings Bay. This is a reminder to boaters to be really watchful for manatees in the county. If this manatee was killed by a boat strike, that would be sad. Boaters should be extra cautious as more and more manatees are starting to move in. Griselda is the 10th manatee to die in county waters so far this year. Two have died by watercraft. Two were perinatal deaths. Three died of cold stress. One died of natural causes and one death was undetermined.

Stacy Dunn snapped a picture of a cold front moving into Kings Bay in Crystal River Monday morning. While the layered clouds looked ominous, the storm dropped less than an inch of rain through the afternoon. Mike Clay, senior meteorologist with Bay News 9, said a strong cold front moved through Citrus County and dropped about 0.3 inches of rain Monday. The clouds were expected to pass through rapidly but with the front, colder air moved in. Clay also said Thursday will be the coldest day with expected temperatures around upper 30s in the morning. According to Alex Sosnowski, Senior Expert Meteorologist for AccuWeather.com, a topsy-turvy weather pattern is driving cold air southward to the central Gulf Coast states, while pumping warm air northward into the northeastern United States. MANATEEContinued from Page A1 CHARITY Continued from Page A1 crisis at hand, borrowing costs for European nations stabilized after rising alarmingly in recent weeks first in Greece, then in Italy and Spain, then in France and Germany, the two most stable economies in continental Europe. The yields on benchmark bonds issued by Italy and Germany rose, but only by hundredths of a percentage point. The yield fell 0.1 percentage points on bonds of France, 0.14 points for those of Spain and 0.22 points for Belgium. European finance ministers prepared for a summit beginning Tuesday in Brussels. Italy readied an auction of bonds designed to raise 8 billion, or about $10.6 billion and steeled itself for the high interest rates it will have to pay. In Washington, President Barack Obama huddled with European Union officials, and the White House insisted Europe alone was responsible for fixing its debt problems. This is something they need to solve and they have the capacity to solve, both financial capacity and political will, presidential spokesman Jay Carney said. As the crisis played out across the Atlantic Ocean, a raft of ideas once considered taboo gained sudden prominence. Among them was a fiscal union of the 17 countries that share the euro currency, a proposal that some analysts have said would be a great leap toward creating a United States of Europe. While the details are not clear, such a union could give a central European authority the power to enforce rules on the budgets of individual countries. That would pose a practical problem how to make such a body democratically accountable. More delicately, it would force the nations of Europe to swallow their national pride, cede some sovereignty and agree to strengthen ties with their neighbors rather than fleeing the euro union during the crisis. The common currency has the problem that the monetary policy is joint, but the fiscal policy is not, Germanys finance minister, Wolfgang Schaeuble, said in a meeting with foreign reporters in Berlin. Consequently, we are working now to expand the common currency through a common stability policy. With a fiscal union in place, the European Central Bank might also find it more palatable to stage a massive intervention in the European bond market to drive down borrowing costs and keep the debt crisis under control.

N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterLECANTO To the members and friends of Archangel Michael Greek Orthodox Church in Lecanto, their founding pastor, the Rev. George Papadeas, was a priest of priests. If it wasnt for Father George, St. Michaels wouldnt be in Lecanto and I wouldnt be here, said church member George Kanaris. He married my parents 63 or 64 years ago in Brooklyn, N.Y., so hes been an important part of my family. Papadeas died Nov. 18 in Daytona Beach at age 93. Kanaris said the congregation started meeting in a duplex on Ella Street in Inverness in 1981, then moved to a storefront in Lecanto. When the members wanted to build their own building, they held their first fundraising meeting at Emilys, Kanaris restaurant in Homosassa, where Papadeas pledged the first $5,000. He was a tremendous fundraiser, Kanaris said. He had vision. It was his idea to build a banquet hall and his idea for the Greek festivals. More than that, he was truly a holy man. He was charismatic and had a sense of peace about him that drew people. Born in Altoona, Pa., to Greek immigrants, Papadeas was part of the first group of priests to graduate from the nations first Greek seminary. Prior to that, Greek Orthodox priests were imported from Greece to serve churches in the United States. Papadeas founded St. Pauls Cathedral in Hempstead, N.Y., in the late 1950s and even helped construct the altar. Later he founded St. Michaels in Lecanto and the Ocala Mission in Ocala. While serving the Lecanto church as its priest, he also served St. Demetrios parish in Daytona Beach, traveling every other week to Lecanto from his home in Daytona. Even after he retired from St. Michaels in 1997, he commuted to Ocala until just a few months ago when his health began to fail. When we were coming down here from Michigan, after we were introduced to Father George in 1995, we used to plan our trips around church services, when we met only twice a month, said Sylvia Lovelace, St. Michaels choir director. He was inspirational as a preacher, but he was also a wonderful teacher. He taught not only about salvation, but about history. He was good at what he did. In the late 1950s, Papadeas designed a keyboard layout for Greek language typewriters to make it easier for American typists and gave the idea to SmithCorona. In 1960, he brought a weeping icon of the Virgin Mary to St. Pauls, which drew hundreds of thousands to see the miraculous manifestation. In 1990, New York Newsdaynamed it one of the most significant events of the past 50 years. When Richard Nixon was vice president, he invited Papadeas to the White House to tell him about the icon and its tears, which he wrote about in his book, Why Did She Cry? Among many of his accomplishments, Papadeas went on to become the dean of the Archdiocean Cathedral in New York City. He wrote and spoke Greek fluently. He raised five children and was spiritual father to thousands. In our early years, he was our rock, said George Mavros, longtime church member and spokesman. When we were trying to form a community out of nothing, he offered hope. Clearly, without him we would not be a congregation. He was dedicated and always put the church first. He was not only a spiritual father, but a friend. Even though he never lived here, he kept in constant contact and communication.

George Papadeas: Greek church founder Trimming trees for Christmas celebration Ousted ombudsman adds new accusations to lawsuit Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Floridas ousted long-term care ombudsman on Monday added new accusations to his lawsuit alleging that Gov. Rick Scott forced his resignation at the urging of the nursing home industry. Brian Lee originally accused the Department of Elder Affairs of violating the states whistleblower law by ousting him to retaliate for his advocacy on behalf of long-term care residents. The department gave him the choice of resigning or being fired after the agency received a letter from Scotts office saying it was time for Lee to go. Lees initial lawsuit also accused two trade organizations of interfering with a business relationship by damaging his reputation, which cost him employment opportunities. The amended complaint also alleges all three defendants violated a law against interference with an ombudsmans duties and that he was defamed by the Florida Health Care Association. The defendants have 20 days to respond to the amended complaint, which also retains the original allegations. Lee was forced out in February after the association urged Scott to replace him. His ouster also came after he used the new federal health care law, which Scott has forcefully opposed, to seek nursing homes ownership and management information.

SIDIBE Staff WriterA Holder man is facing a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery for shoving a woman into a dresser and grabbing her by the hair and dragging her to the kitchen table, according to a Citrus County Sheriffs Office report. Glenn David Conner Jr., 24, was arrested Nov. 22. Conner also reportedly later locked the woman out of a house and shoved her out of a bedroom window as she attempted to crawl back in. Investigators noted fresh marks on the womans knees reportedly consistent with rug burns. No bond was set. Other arrests: Anthony L. Schubert, 22, of Crystal River, was arrested Nov. 21 in a domestic battery case. According to the report, Schubert grabbed a woman during an argument and shoved her over the bed and nightstand, causing her to hit her head on a windowsill. He reportedly also chased the woman outside the house and caused her to skin her knees while pushing her down on the ground to purportedly keep her from calling for help. Schubert reportedly told police he was the victim in the incident and the woman punched him in the face and threw things at him. No bond was set. Scott Thomas Meldrum, 43, of Homosassa was arrested Nov. 21 in a domestic battery case. According to the report, Meldrum punched a woman during an argument in the parking lot of a local eatery.

Manager Rafael DeValle said some Chassahowitzka residents have expressed concerns to the county. The set of evaluation for Chassahowitzka and the other three nearby tracts will be put online next month at the SWFWMD website: www.swfwmd.state. fl.us. Interested parties can review them to make comment at the Jan. 5 meeting. The meeting will be 6 to 8 p.m. at the Lecanto Government Building. The hunting initiative began in 2009, when SWFWMD met with its land use stakeholders group. That group is made up of citizens and representatives from various interest groups and other agencies. While discussing issues, the idea of looking into expanding hunting on district lands was proposed. The district agreed to take an objective look at current and potential hunting opportunities and developed a hunting working group to study it. Out of that working group came approved criteria for evaluation upon which the district staff and the FWC will make proposals. There will be a public meeting on the first four tracts, Cypress Creek Preserve, Green Swamp East (non-wildlife management area and Hampton Tract), and Green Swamp West (non-wildlife management area) and Lower Hillsborough Wilderness Preserve) on Monday, Dec. 5, in Plant City. SWFWMDs governing board will decide any changes of use at its Dec. 20 meeting. The second set tracts, including Chassahowitzka, will be considered at the boards Jan. 31 hearing. The proposal to expand hunting in Chassahowitzka has some opponents in Citrus County, including the local chapter of Florida Audubon. Audubon member Nancy Lee said the number of hunters has declined while the number of non-hunting public users has increased and there are 5.8 million acres in Florida already set aside for hunting. Isnt that enough? she asked. Citrus County Audubon Society President Darrell Snedecor said, were really opposed to it. Our position is to preserve as much public land as we can to use and not sell off or restrict the use public lands for everyone, all the time, he said. On the other hand Snedecor said, Audubon was not opposed to hunting per se, and does not want to alienate hunters. In fact, he said, Audubon would like to work with them and join to form coalitions on environmental issues like opposing the possible sale of lands owned by SWFWMD and the other water districts in the state. Chuck Echenique, a regional director of United Waterfowlers of Florida, who drafted the proposal for expanded use, said hunters strive to be good stewards of the natural lands and they have positive impacts on such tracts. Legal hunters police their own activities and illegal poaching and vandalism goes down in areas where hunting is allowed. Hunters report violations, he said. As for fears about safety, he said there is no case in the past 36 years of the current wildlife management system of hunters injuring residents or even other nonhunting users of the lands. In addition, he said, hunters have an equal right to use the lands for recreation, which by definition includes hunting, and they arent asking for exclusive use. He said there are no residences on the border of the Chassahowitzka area, which would be an extension of a wildlife management area already existing to the south. Finally, he said, hunters would agree to only go in and out of the management area at one access point, which is also a safety area, so any residents near there need not be concerned. Some hunting is currently allowed on a limited basis in Chassahowitzka in specific managed hunts, but there are no regular hunting seasons, such as in the designated wildlife management areas. In an initial preliminary evaluation, the following has been suggested for Chassahowitzka as being consistent with the adjoining wildlife management areas: Southern portion: 30 days archery, three days muzzleloading, 58 days modern gun, six days hog, two days youth turkey, nine days spring turkey; and state zonal season for waterfowl. Northern portion: Three four-day archery hunts, 47 days small game, and 14 days spring turkey. SWFWMD is accepting comments and questions and has an email list for the issue.

Associated PressLONDON Ken Russell got Oliver Reed and Alan Bates to wrestle naked, turned Vanessa Redgrave into a demonic nun and cast Ringo Starr as the pope. Critics and mainstream audiences often hated his films. Actors and admirers loved him. The iconoclastic British director, whose death at age 84 was announced Monday, made films that blended music, sex and violence in a potent brew seemingly drawn straight from his subconscious. Only a few of his movies were commercial successes. The best known were Women in Love, an Academy award-winning adaptation of D.H. Lawrences novel, and Tommy, which turned The Whos rock opera into a psychedelic extravaganza complete with appearances from Elton John, Eric Clapton and Tina Turner. Russell was fascinated with altered mental states and loved horror, religious turmoil and Gothic excess. Music played a central role in many of Russells films, including The Music Lovers in 1970, about the composer Tchaikovsky Russell sold it to the studio with the pitch its about a nymphomaniac who falls in love with a homosexual. The same unorthodox approach to costume drama informed 1975s Lisztomania, which starred Roger Daltrey of The Who as 19th-century heartthrob Franz Liszt, with Beatles drummer Starr playing the pope. The Boy Friend, a 1971 homage to 1930s Hollywood musicals starring supermodel Twiggy, and Russells 1975 adaptation of Tommy, were musicals of a different sort, both marked by the directors characteristic visual excess. Russells darker side was rarely far away. Dantes Inferno, a 1967 movie about the poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti, played up the differences between Rossettis idealized view of his wife and her reality as a drug addict. Russell was even more provocative in his 1970 film The Dance of the Seven Veils: A Comic Strip in Seven Episodes. It presented the composer Richard Strauss as a crypto-Nazi, and showed him conducting Rosen kavalier waltzes while SS men tortured a Jew. The Devils, a 1971 film starring Redgrave as a 17th-century nun in the grip of demonic possession, was heavily cut for its U.S. release and is due to be released on DVD in Britain for the first time in 2012. Russell told The Associated Press in 1987 that he found such censorship so tedious and boring. He called the American print of The Devils just a butchered nonsense. Russells fascination with changing mental states also surfaced in 1980 film Altered States, a rare Hollywood foray for him, starring William Hurt as a scientist experimenting with hallucinogens. It was poorly received. Later films included the comic horror thriller The Lair of the White Worm in 1989, which gave an atypical early role to Hugh Grant as a vampire wormbattling lord of the manor. Married four times, Russell is survived by his wife Elize Tribble and his children. Laureat Bernard, 88BEVERLY HILLSLaureat J. Bernard, 88, of Beverly Hills, FL, passed away Thursday, November 24, 2011. He was the husband of Therese (Carbonneau) Bernard for more than 64 years.

After the war, he graduated from the University of Maine, Orono, ME (B.A., 1948; M.A., 1949) and earned his Ph.D. in history from the University of Boston in 1957. Dr. Bernard spent his career as an educator in Massachusetts. He was a teacher at Middleboro and Ipswich High Schools and then a professor at Boston State College from 19561982.

Judge rejects SEC-Citigroup dealNEW YORK A judge on Monday used unusually harsh language to strike down a $285 million settlement between Citigroup and the Securities and Exchange Commission over toxic mortgage securities, saying he couldnt tell whether the deal was fair and criticizing regulators for shielding the public from details of the firms wrongdoing. U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff said the public has a right to know what happens in cases that touch on the transparency of financial markets whose gyrations have so depressed our economy and debilitated our lives. In such cases, the SEC has a responsibility to ensure that the truth emerges, he wrote. Rakoff said he had spent hours trying to assess the settlement but concluded that he had not been given any proven or admitted facts upon which to exercise even a modest degree of independent judgment. GM: Free loaner cars to Volt ownersDETROIT General Motors, concerned about the image of its Chevrolet Volt, is offering free loaner vehicles to owners worried about their electric cars catching fire. The offer comes after a government safety agency said Friday that it is investigating fires involving the Volts lithium-ion battery packs following crash tests. Thus far, the Volt tests have not raised concerns about the safety of other electric cars, the agency has said. GM said on Monday that the vehicle is safe. But it will contact owners of the more than 5,000 Volts sold in North America since December 2010 to reassure them. It will offer the loaners to ensure owners are satisfied and confident in their purchase. GM has not put a time limit on how long customers can keep the loaners but said the offer is not a response to demands from customers. OECD warns about global economy PARIS The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development said Monday policy makers around the world must be prepared to face the worst, as the economic impact of Europes debt crisis threatens to spread around the developed world. The Paris-based OECD said in its latest Economic Outlook that continued failure by EU leaders to stem the debt crisis that has spread from Greece to much-bigger Italy could massively escalate economic disruption and end in highly devastating outcomes. The half-yearly update also recommended urgently boosting the EU bailout fund and called on Europes central bank to do more to stem the crisis. Sales of new homes rise, but prices fall WASHINGTON Slightly more Americans bought new homes in October, a hopeful sign for the troubled housing market. But the median sales price fell to its lowest level of the year, and the overall sales pace is trailing last years the worst performance in half a century. The report suggests housing continues to drag on the U.S. economy and is a long way from recovering. New-home sales increased 1.3 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 307,000, the Commerce Department said Monday. Thats less than half the 700,000 that economists say must be sold to sustain a healthy housing market. Septembers figures were also revised down significantly to show a weaker pace than first estimated. Icahn makes run at Commercial MetalsNEW YORK Carl Icahn said Monday that he wants to buy Commercial Metals Co. for about $1.73 billion and combine parts of it with metals recycling businesses that he already owns. The billionaire investor, who already owns almost 10 percent of Commercial Metals, said he also plans to nominate three of his associates to be directors on its board. Icahns offer of $15 per share represents a 31 percent premium over the scrap metal processors closing stock price on Friday.B USINESS C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, N OVEMBER29, 2011 A7 Advance Capital I: Balanc p 15.36+.27 RetInc 8.62+.02 Alger Funds B: SmCapGr 5.97+.28 AllianceBern A: BalanA p 14.85+.27 GlbThGrA p 59.26+2.22 SmCpGrA 32.86+1.48 AllianceBern Adv: LgCpGrAd 24.95+.77 AllianceBern B: GlbThGrB t 50.80+1.90 GrowthB t 23.63+.76 SCpGrB t 26.24+1.18 AllianceBern C: SCpGrC t 26.42+1.19 Allianz Fds Instl: NFJDvVl 10.75+.28 SmCpVl 29.00+.98 Allianz Funds A: SmCpV A 27.61+.94 Allianz Funds C: AGICGrthC 22.58+.76 TargetC t 13.60+.53 AmanaGrw n23.57+.64 Amer Beacon Insti: LgCapInst 17.89+.48 Amer Beacon Inv: LgCap Inv 16.95+.46 Amer Century Adv: EqGroA p 20.32+.61 EqIncA p 6.90+.13 Amer Century Inv: AllCapGr 26.62+.90 Balanced 15.46+.28 DivBnd 11.08+.01 EqInc 6.90+.12 GrowthI 24.78+.80 HeritageI 19.27+.69 IncGro 23.04+.67 InfAdjBd 13.13+.04 IntDisc 8.71+.29 IntlGroI 9.39+.30 New Opp 7.01+.34 OneChAg 11.46+.30 OneChMd 11.19+.23 RealEstI 18.73+.43 Ultra 22.43+.80 ValueInv 5.29+.14 American Funds A: AmcpA p 18.16+.49 AMutlA p 24.57+.55 BalA p 17.61+.37 BondA p 12.47+.01 CapIBA p 47.78+.82 CapWGA p 31.14+.90 CapWA p 20.39+.06 EupacA p 35.05+1.15 FdInvA p 33.96+1.03 GovtA p 14.65+.01 GwthA p 28.10+.85 HI TrA p 10.48+.04 IncoA p 16.07+.27 IntBdA p 13.58...

The Standard & Poors 500 index broke a seven-day losing streak and the Dow Jones industrial average jumped 291 points, its biggest gain in a month. Markets in Europe also surged as leaders there discussed previously unthinkable approaches for containing the regions debt troubles, such as joint bond sales and much tighter fiscal controls. Frances CAC40 jumped 5.5 percent. Indexes in Germany and Italy rose 4.6 percent. The battered euro rose against the dollar. The Dow soared 291.23 points, or 2.6 percent, to 11,523.01. Alcoa Inc. jumped 5.7 percent, the most of the 30 stocks in the Dow. The Dow plunged 564 points last week on fear that Europes debt crisis was spreading to large countries like Spain, Italy and even Germany. The S&P 500 rose 33, or 2.9 percent, to 1,192.55. The gains came across industries and sectors; only six stocks in the index fell. The Nasdaq composite rose 85, or 3.5 percent, to 2,527.34. As the threat of an imminent meltdown in Europe ebbed, U.S. investors focused on a strong weekend of holiday shopping. A record 226 million shoppers visited stores and websites during the four-day holiday weekend starting on Thanksgiving Day, up from 212 million last year, according to early estimates by The National Retail Federation. They spent more, too: The average holiday shopper spent $398.62 over the weekend, up from $365.34 a year ago. Thats an encouraging sign for consumer spending. The retail numbers added to a growing set of indicators, including steady drops in the number of new applications for unemployment benefits, that suggest the U.S. economy is continuing to heal. As recently as August, there were widespread concerns that the U.S. could enter another recession. This goes in stark contrast to the gloom and doom that had been over markets, said Rob Lutts, president of Salem, Ma.-based investment firm Cabot Money Management.

The Treasury Department auctioned $29 billion in three-month bills at a discount rate of 0.03 percent, up from 0.015 percent last week. Another $27 billion in six-month bills was auctioned at a discount rate of 0.07 percent, up from 0.05 percent last week. On Nov. 7, the threemonth bill dropped to 0.005 percent and the six-month bill averaged 0.035 percent. The three-month rate at Mondays auction was the highest since three-month bills averaged 0.035 percent on Aug. 15. The six-month rate was the highest since these bills averaged 0.08 percent, also on Aug. 15. The discount rates reflect that the bills sell for less than face value. For a $10,000 bill, the three-month price was $9,999.24 while a six-month bill sold for $9,996.46. That would equal an annualized rate of 0.031 percent for the three-month bills and 0.071 percent for the six-month bills. Separately, the Federal Reserve said Monday that the average yield for oneyear Treasury bills, a popular index for making changes in adjustable rate mortgages, edged up to 0.12 percent last week from 0.11 percent the previous week.

O PINION Page A8 TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2011 Give stock options Did anyone doubt that the Public Service Commission (PSC) members (would), on Nov. 22, vote in favor of Progress Energy? The PSC is a legislative agency and does what the Legislature wants it to do. Does the Legislature do what lobbyists and corporations like Progress Energy want them to do? PSC recommended that Progress Energy (PE) be allowed to increase its customers bills. Absent an alternative electric utility provider, PE has locked in customers who will be required to pay for Progress Energy repairs via continued increased rates. Progress Energys CEOs have reaped millions in salaries, benefits and golden parachutes. In March 2011, Progress CEO William Johnson enjoyed a whooping $6.5 million golden parachute. PE gives away assets and then tells PSC to authorize an increase to their customers electric bills. We will be paying for expenses (about $670 million) incurred by PEs incompetent attempts to repair the Crystal River nuclear plant, and a cost for actual repairs that may be more than $2.5 billion. In addition, Levy County customers will be paying in advance for construction of the PE nuclear plant in Levy County that may be completed in 2027. This is thanks to Senate President Jeff Atwater, who in 2006 pushed an amendment allowing electric utilities up-front recovery of all nuclear power plant pre-construction costs. Why are we supporting this utility monopoly? If this is capitalism, we should qualify as investors and get shares in PE in exchange for us paying for PEs repairs, maintenance and new construction. If this is socialism, then our government should take over Progress Energy.Augie Nero Inverness Government spending Americans will lose steadily more of their property and their liberty through direct taxation confiscation until they demand citizen-controlled taxation and refuse to allow the state to spend with impunity. People intending to live in liberty do not allow legislators or other public officials within these United States of America to subsidize private enterprises with public money. They prohibit discriminatory spending of public money. Rescind Amendment XIV, Section 4. They cant seem to handle being untied. Chester McWhorter Sr. Lecanto D uring the presidential campaign of 2000, George W. Bush was criticized by some conservatives for calling himself a compassionate conservative. Some believed the term to be redundant. Now were in the middle of the 2012 presidential campaign and candidate Newt Gingrich has called for a humane policy on illegal immigrants. Gingrich wants illegal residents who have been in America for 25 years to stay, so as not to separate families. Seeking to clarify comments he made during the Republican debate on national security last week, Gingrich told Fox News, I am for deporting all recent unattached illegals. I am for a local citizen panel to consider certification of those who have been here 25 years and have family and community (ties) and have been law abiding and taxpaying. While I salute Gingrichs validation of family values, there are several problems with his suggestion. First, why 25 years? Why not 24, or 23? How about 15? What if the children are adults? If a single parent remained because of divorce or death, would that parent be deported? Second, what is to keep the local citizen panel from being co-opted by liberal interest groups working for the Democratic Party? Gingrichs call to ... be humane in enforcing the law without giving them citizenship ... may sound good to some, but once those here illegally have been certified, interest groups will surely lobby on their behalf for full citizenship. Republicans should not have to prove their compassion by supporting a statute of limitations on lawbreakers. Instead, Republicans should present examples of immigrants who have come to America legally and built a life while obeying the law. Gingrich is correct when he says we are not about to round up 11 million illegal immigrants, as America rounded up more than 100,000 Japanese at the start of World War II, many of them U.S. citizens. But doing nothing or granting Gingrichs proposed path to legality (through certification) will only draw more illegals. In my ideal world (and some U.S. laws might have to change to accomplish it), this is what I think should be done: Illegal immigrants who have jobs, pay taxes and are law abiding can stay as temporary residents provided they are doing jobs no American citizen wants to do. An employer can prove that by advertising for a position and if no citizen applies, the illegal immigrant may be hired for a fixed period of time, after which the position must be advertised again. The illegal immigrant should be forbidden any unemployment or welfare benefits. Medical insurance, or the cost of any care, should be provided by the employer. Immigrant children can be educated in public schools (and taught English) provided their parents pay property taxes. If an illegal immigrant is renting or living with others, he or she should pay a certain amount to defray the cost of education. If a child is born in America to illegal immigrants, that child should not automatically receive U.S. citizenship (a court ruling reinterpreting the Constitution would be required to change the automatic granting of citizenship to children of illegal immigrants born in the U.S.). After two or three renewals of the illegals special visa, the person must return to his or her native land for a specified period of time and then apply for re-entry. Should the illegal immigrant desire citizenship, that person should first learn English and American history. The path ought to be rigorous so that we know the person is coming to America for more than just the goodies the U.S. government provides. Most importantly, we must protect and secure our countrys borders. Gingrichs hero, Ronald Reagan is credited with saying, A nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation. Something else troubles me about this debate. Why is it compassionate to suggest ways for people who have broken our laws to escape the consequences but cruel to require that they obey our laws in not entering the country illegally in the first place? Everyone wants a better life for themselves and their children. American citizens mostly seek that better life by conforming to the law. Illegal immigrants should do the same.

Hawkes, the former state representative from Citrus County, resigned his post on the states First District Court of Appeals in Tallahassee this past week, as the Taj Mahal controversy headed toward the Judicial Qualifications Commission for review. The JQC could have removed Hawkes from the court and revoked his law license. Hawkes, who began his career in Crystal River as an attorney in the 1980s, was serving as the chief judge of the First District Court of Appeals when reports surfaced that a magnificent new courthouse had been constructed outside of Tallahassee. Under his leadership, Hawkes convinced the Legislature to spend $48.8 million to build the opulent courthouse filled with over-the-top amenities for the judges. As a legislator and staff member, the judge had worked closely with then-Gov. Jeb Bush and had a keen understanding of how to navigate the process. He knew how the system worked. He used those skills to negotiate funding for the courthouse. But it ended up his undoing. When news stories finally broke about the $48.8 million expenditure, a firestorm of criticism forced Hawkes to resign his leadership position on the court. As criticism continued this month, Hawkes decided to resign from the court at the end of the year and go into private practice.The JQC is expected not to pursue additional charges against him. Hawkes writes off the controversy as a case of bad timing the economy crashed during the construction of the building and the extravagant courthouse stood out as an example of arrogant spending. There may be some truth to the analysis, but that still doesnt make the wasteful spending of the taxpayers money appropriate. When Hawkes was first sent to Tallahassee by Citrus County residents, he promised to use a conservative spending philosophy to make decisions. In fact, during his first year in the House, the freshman representative introduced his own budget to his partys leadership and was rewarded with a lonely office in the basement of the Capitol building. The obscene opulence of this courthouse project just goes to show even the most conservative thinker can be lured into a sense of entitlement once they become part of the power structure. This was a sad chapter of our local political history. THE ISSUE: Judge Paul Hawkes.OUR OPINION: Courthouse project was his ruin.

Restructuring entailed layoffs, consolidations Associated PressFor the American Red Cross, it has been a doubly challenging year. While coping with a relentless series of natural disasters, the organization has carried out a nationwide overhaul that slashed more than 1,500 jobs, pared down many local offices, and left some former loyalists with badly bruised feelings. President Gail McGovern says the 130-year-old Red Cross had little choice but to restructure to ward off a projected deficit. It has merged and consolidated many chapters to reduce duplication, and given the national office control over local fundraising so all funds can be spent as strategically as possible. We have remarkably loyal donors, and theyre also demanding, McGovern said in an interview. They want to be sure their hardearned dollars are being used to optimize the mission and are going to help the people we serve. During the year, McGovern said, the Red Cross has eliminated roughly 1,000 positions at its local and regional chapters and about 170 positions at its Washington headquarters in each case about 10 percent of the work force. In addition, about 400 posts out of roughly 20,000 were eliminated in the biomedical and blood services division. McGovern insists the core missions notably disaster relief, blood banks and assistance to military families will not be impaired. She said the Red Cross responded vigorously to this years nationwide onslaught of tornadoes, floods, hurricanes and wildfires. If there was any doubt in anyones mind that we would be able to fulfill the mission, that doubt was removed, she said. If anything, were doing it better. The network of chapters is still large about 600 nationwide, compared to more than 800 five years ago. The chapters operate with a core of paid staffers and many volunteers, and some have more than one office location in their service area. McGovern said only about 20 of the 1,200 locations nationwide will be closed completely, but many will have reduced staffs and functions. Such is the case in farwestern Nebraska, where the overhaul became acrimonious. Plans to downgrade the nearly century-old Greater Nebraska Panhandle Chapter into a service center prompted volunteer board members to resign in protest, and its executive director was fired and escorted from the chapters office in tears. The upheaval began with an emailed memo in July, according to Rick Tuggle, a Scottsbluff banker and chairman of the chapters board. The panhandle chapter which served 11 counties over 14,000 square miles was told it would be folded into a neighboring Nebraska chapter, Central Plains, with the local board ceding authority over how the money it raised would be spent. Keeping the money local did, and does, matter to people out here, Tuggle said. Before Tuggle became chairman almost four years ago, the chapter was floundering financially. He recruited doggedly for volunteers, boosting the volunteer board from two to 13 members and helping hire a new executive director. About the time ... we were celebrating our victories as a chapter, after three years of operation in the black, we get the letter from regional that says, Oh, guess what? Youre not a chapter anymore, said Tuggle, who quickly wrote to McGovern, pleading for reconsideration. Shortly thereafter, the Panhandle group was informed it could remain a chapter in name, but oversight would still go to Central Plains. In August, Panhandle board members met with the executive directors of the Central Plains and Omaha-based Heartland chapters, who said national officials would decide how money they raised would be spent. By the end of the meeting, six board members had resigned. Some donors then withheld donations, including a $20,000 pledge rescinded by the local United Way. Next, the executive directors removed Panhandle director Jann Rouzee, having her escorted her from the building. Scottsbluffs daily newspaper, the Star-Herald, took the side of the local board members in an editorial, saying the higher-ups from afar pushed through the changes in a bumbling fashion that led to negative publicity and a loss of local support. The national Red Cross defended the overhaul across the country as necessary for the organizations fiscal health. It also said the Panhandle region would continue to receive full Red Cross services. Changes have been felt in most states. In Ohio, the Red Cross merged its Dayton and Cincinnati regions, and laid off at least 29 people 15 percent of the work force. In southern Virginia, eight chapters were consolidated into one new administrative region. In Western Massachusetts, the overhaul was complicated by a decision to cut several programs deemed to be outside the core Red Cross mission. An HIV/AIDS support program was shifted to a regional hospital, but there were hitches finding new agencies to provide non-emergency medical transport. Richard Lee, executive director of the Pioneer Valley chapter, said about 15 staffers in Western Massachusetts were laid off. None of them deserved to lose their jobs, he said. Thats what made it harder. Paul Light, an expert on nonprofits and professor of public service at New York University, said the Red Cross deserved plaudits for undertaking a necessary but difficult task. Its exactly the right thing to do, but it is extremely controversial, he said. Each one of these chapters has its own identity. Closing one is like closing the local library. He said the consolidation should improve disaster response by reducing disparities that sometimes surfaced between relatively strong and relatively weak chapters. Its the second major Red Cross overhaul in recent years. In 2008, faced with a deficit of about $210 million, it laid off one-third of the 3,000 employees at its Washington headquarters.

James F. Amos, the face of opposition in the military to lifting the ban on gays serving openly, now acknowledges his concern has proven unfounded that repeal would undermine the war effort. In fact, he says, Marines have embraced the change. In an Associated Press interview, Amos called the repeal in September a non-event. That is in contrast to his cautionary words to Congress in December 2010, shortly before President Barack Obama signed the repeal legislation. The ban was not lifted until this year to allow the Pentagon to prepare troops for the change. Successfully implementing repeal and assimilating openly homosexual Marines into the tightly woven fabric of our combat units has strong potential for disruption at the small unit level as it will no doubt divert leadership attention away from an almost singular focus on preparing units for combat, Amos testified. Still, he said at the time that if the law were changed, it would be faithfully followed by Marines. He now sees no sign of disruption in the ranks even on the front lines. Im very pleased with how it has gone, Amos said during a weeklong trip that included four days in Afghanistan, where he heard nary a word of worry about gays. During give-and-take sessions with Marines serving on in Helmand province, he was asked about a range of issues, including the future of the Corps but not one about gays. The Associated Press accompanied Amos on the trip. In the AP interview, he also offered an anecdote from the home front to make his point that the change has been taken in stride. He said at the annual ball in Washington this month celebrating the birth of the Marine Corps, a female Marine approached Amos wife, Bonnie, and introduced herself and her lesbian partner. Bonnie just looked at them and said, Happy birthday ball. This is great. Nice to meet you, Amos said. That is happening throughout the Marine Corps. Looking back, Amos said he had no regrets about publicly opposing repeal during wartime. He said he had felt obliged, as commandant of the Corps, to set aside his personal opinions and represent the views of the 56 percent of combat Marines who told a Defense Department survey last year that repeal could make them less effective and cohesive in combat. I think I did exactly what I should have done, Amos said. Ive never looked back on it and said it (his concern) was misplaced. Not only did Amos hear no talk about the repeals impact during his visit to Afghanistan, the subject also did not arise when he fielded questions from Marines on board the USS Bataan warship in the Gulf of Aden on Saturday. In Bahrain on Sunday, one Marine broached the topic gently. He asked Amos whether he planned to change the Marines policy of leaving it to the discretion of local commanders to decide how to handle complaints about homosexual remarks or actions. Amos said no. He said he is aware of only one reported incident in Afghanistan thus far, and that turned out to be a false alarm. He said a blogger had written of a gay Marine being harassed by fellow Marines for his sexual orientation. In an ensuing investigation, the gay Marine denied he had been harassed. A Defense Department spokeswoman, Cynthia O. Smith, said implementation of the repeal of the gay ban is proceeding smoothly across the military. We attribute this success to our comprehensive pre-repeal training program, combined with the continued close monitoring and enforcement of standards by our military leaders at all levels, Smith said. In the months leading up to Congress repeal, there were indications the change might not be embraced so readily. During a visit to a Marine combat outpost in southern Afghanistan in June, then-Defense Secretary Robert Gates was confronted by an enlisted Marine who clearly objected to the repeal. He told Gates the Marine Corps had a set of standards and values that is better than that of the civilian sector, and repeal of the gay ban had changed those values. He asked Gates whether Marines who object to serving with gays would be allowed to opt out of their enlistment. Gates said no and predicted that if prerepeal training was done right, nothing will change with regard to rules of behavior and discipline. Challenging year for Red Cross Associated Press Marine Crops Commandant Gen. James Amos testified last December on Capitol Hill in Washington about the military policy of Dont Ask Dont Tell during a Senate Armed Service Committee. Amos, who had argued against repealing the ban during wartime said, Im very pleased with how it has gone.

Democratic Rep. Barney Frank of Massachusetts says he does not intend to seek re-election in 2012. Frank spoke Monday at a news conference in his hometown of Newton. Frank said he originally intended to run for one more term, but that his decision was partially due to the fact that the states new redistricting map will include many people he has never represented before. Frank said he has had a busy and stressful four years dealing with financial reform after the recession. He says he plans to write and stay involved in public policy decisions. The 71-year-old Frank, a lifelong liberal, won a House seat in 1980 and was one of the first lawmakers to announce that he is gay.

Colombian drug smuggler captured CARACAS, Venezuela A top Colombian drug trafficker reputedly responsible for shipping tons of cocaine to the United States through Central America and Mexico has been captured in Venezuela, officials said Monday. The U.S. had offered a $5 million reward for information leading to the arrest of Maximiliano Bonilla Orozco, also known as Valenciano, who was also on Colombias most-wanted list. Colombian authorities told The Associated Press that Bonilla was captured Sunday. The information was later confirmed by Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, who was in Venezuela meeting with President Hugo Chavez. Hes one of the most recognized drug traffickers, who has caused terrible harm to our country, Santos told Chavez at the presidential palace. We know that your people, your authorities ... were after this individual for some time, and look how God is on our side, the coincidence that last night you captured him and today we can give this magnificent news, Santos said.

Here we go again. I didnt do anything wrong, Cain said on CNN. He acknowledged he knew the woman who was behind the accusation. Moments after Cain issued a preemptive denial, an Atlanta television station posted a story to its website quoting a Georgia woman identified as Ginger White as saying, It wasnt complicated. I was aware that he was married. And I was also aware I was involved in a very inappropriate situation, relationship. Cains candidacy was soaring in the polls until he was hit less than a month ago with accusations that he sexually harassed several women and groped one while he was a high-ranking official at the National Restaurant Association. He has since fallen back in the surveys, and more recently eclipsed by Newt Gingrich in the race to emerge as the main conservative alternative to Mitt Romney. In this case, unlike the others, Cain took the unorthodox step of issuing a denial in advance. I did not have an affair, and until I see and hear exactly whats going to be, what accusations are going to be made, lets move on. Asked if he suspected his accuser had emails, letters, gifts or other possible evidence of an affair, he said, No. Ginger White alleges affair. Egyptian waiting game Long lines to cast ballots, despite unrest Associated PressCAIRO They waited in long lines for hours to vote, despite a new wave of unrest, fears about a sharply divided society and uncertainty over the nations future. For the millions of Egyptians who cast ballots Monday, the first parliamentary elections since they ousted Hosni Mubarak were a turning point in history if for no other reason than they were finally getting a chance to be heard after decades of rigged voting. The outcome will indicate whether one of Americas most important Middle East allies will remain secular or move down a more Islamic path, as have other countries swept up in the Arab Spring. I have hope this time, said Amal Fathy, a 50year-old government employee who wears the Islamic veil, as she patiently waited to vote. I may not live long enough to see change, but my grandchildren will. Since the uprising that forced out Mubarak nearly 10 months ago, Egyptians had looked forward to this day as a celebration of freedom after years of stifling dictatorship. Instead, there has been deep disappointment with the military rulers who replaced the old regime and a new wave of protests and clashes that began 10 days before the vote. Adding to the disarray, the multiple stage election process, which will stretch over months, is extremely complicated. Some of the key political players complained they did not have enough time or the right conditions to organize for the vote. If there was little jubilation, there was hope and even defiance with many determined to either push the military from power or vote against the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups who are expected to dominate the balloting. This was simply overwhelming. My heart was beating so fast, Sanaa elHawary, a 38-year-old mother of one said after she cast her vote in Cairo. This is my life, its my babys life. Its my country and this is the only hope we have now. Female voters appeared to outnumber the men by far, shattering widespread notions in a society whose women are mostly dismissed or taken lightly. Women waiting for five hours at one polling center chanted: We will not give up, we will not give up. In Cairos crowded Shoubra district, 34-yearold Toka Youssef explained why she was voting for the first time in her life. Before, there were no real elections. It was all theater. Now Im optimistic in the future. These are the first steps toward democracy, she said. Its a bit confused and chaotic because weve never seen this many people vote. No one cared this much before. Associated Press Egyptian women wait to vote Monday in the countrys parliamentary election at a polling center in Cairo, Egypt. Shaking off years of political apathy, Egyptians on Monday began voting in their nations first parliamentary elections since Hosni Mubaraks ouster, a giant step toward what many in the country hope will be a democratic Egypt after decades of dictatorship. U.S. not responsible for Europes debt woes Obama meets with top EU officials Associated PressWASHINGTON The White House said emphatically Monday that U.S. taxpayers are not responsible for helping Europe solve its debt crisis, as President Barack Obama and European Union leaders huddled in Washington amid growing fears over the future of the euro. Experts say that without drastic action, the euro could be days away from collapsing, a scenario that could cause further financial damage to the already shaky American economy. Obama and senior U.S. officials were spending much of Monday meeting with top representatives from the EU as part of an annual summit focused largely on the global economy. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Obama would reiterate in the meetings that Europe must act decisively and conclusively in order to rein in its debt crisis, and should not expect additional financial help from the U.S. This is something they need to solve and they have the capacity to solve, both financial capacity and political will, Carney said. We do not in any way believe that additional resources are required from the United States and from American taxpayers, he added. The European Union was being represented in the meetings with Obama by European Council President Herman Van Rompuy, European Commission President Jos Manuel Barroso, and High Representative Catherine Ashton. Back in Europe, leaders are circulating new ideas for how Europe could finally cap the debt woes that began in Greece two years ago and have spread to other larger economies, most notably Italy. Among the ideas floated was a plan for the eurozones six AAA-rated nations to pool their resources via a joint bond to provide assistance to some of the single currency blocs most indebted members. Is tech friend or foe to Santa? Internet gives instant access to St. Nick Associated PressNEW YORK Kids can video chat with Santa, follow him on Twitter or enlist NORAD to track his every move online. And yet in many ways, technology may be making it harder for parents to keep their children believing in the jolly old elf. At nearly every turn, the Internet threatens to blow the fat mans cover. Practically any schoolchild can type Is Santa real? into Google. And just a few clicks can bring youngsters to websites that sell customized letters from the North Pole or offer advice on how Mom and Dad can fool the kids into believing in old St. Nick. I have a love-hate relationship with technology and Santa, said Kristi Kovalak, a mom in St. Louis. The beauty of Santa is the not knowing. Technology is all about knowing, and knowing this instant. I swear, Google is the nemesis of the North Pole. She embraces digital life daily but stays far away from cyber-Santa for her two boys, ages 5 and 11. We dont do robo-calls. We dont submit lists to Santa online. I dont have tracking apps on my phone, she said. Too much proof means you then have to explain away when the next crazy thing contradicts it. Kevin Grout and his wife had a close call recently while watching a Santa Claus parade on TV with their children, ages 6, 4 and 5 months. A commercial came on for a website that creates email greetings from Santa. They switched channels just in time. Were definitely in this boat, primarily with our oldest. Shes a smart cookie, said Grout, of St. Catharines, Ontario. It was clear to me a poor strategy to run it during a Santa Claus parade when many kids would be tuned in. Santa sites can easily be found by any kid with an iPad. Igco.com, for example, screams: Discover our acclaimed letter from Santa, phone call from Santa, Santa evidence kits and official good list certificate.

Associated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio New Ohio State coach Urban Meyer says he would not have returned to coaching this year for any other job. Meyer, the former Florida coach and native Buckeye, was officially hired Monday by Ohio State, a program with a glittering past that has suffered through a difficult year of NCAA violations. Meyer resigned as Gators coach after last season, citing health concerns and a desire to spend more time with his family. A year ago in my mind I was convinced I was done coaching, he said. He added he is feeling great. Ive been checked out and Im ready to go, he said. Meyer will become one of the highest paid coaches in college football. The school says he will receive a sixyear contract that pays $4 million annually, plus another $2.4 million total in retention payments. Interim coach Luke Fickell, who took over when Jim Tressel was forced out for breaking NCAA rules, will coach the Buckeyes (6-6) in their bowl game and be retained by Meyer as an assistant. Meyer won two national championships in six years as the coach at Florida. Now, the 47-year-old will return to the place where his college coaching career began in 1986 after spending a year as an ESPN game analyst. Earle Bruce, the head coach at Ohio State when Meyer was a graduate assistant, has remained a close friend and confidant of Meyer through the years. He said he had no concerns about Meyers health issues. Well, if hed had a heart attack and his heart was bad, Id be worried about that, the 80-year-old Bruce said on Monday. Im not worried that he was stressed out over the game of football because he was thinking too much and not Meyer returning to coach at Ohio State Former Florida football leader to take over at his alma mater S PORTS Section B TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE College Football/ B2 College Basketball/ B2 Scoreboard/B3 NHL/ B3 TV, lottery/ B3 Entertainment/ B4 Florida coach Billy Donovan hits new high with 400th victory./ B2 Associated Press Urban Meyer listens as Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith introduces him as the universitys new football coach, during a news conference Monday in Columbus, Ohio.

He is keeping up his tour of the AL East following stints with the New York Yankees (200709) and Toronto (2010-11). He has thrown out 62 of 170 runners attempting to steal in the last four seasons, at 36.5 the top percentage in the big leagues. Coaches Maurice, Boudreau firedRALEIGH, N.C. The last-place Carolina Hurricanes fired coach Paul Maurice for the second time in less than a decade Monday and replaced him with former All-Star Kirk Muller. Maurice became the second coach in his division to lose his job Monday. His firing was announced about 90 minutes after the Washington Capitals fired Bruce Boudreau and replaced him with Dale Hunter. Boudreau was fired after winning 200 games faster than any coach in modern NHL history but stumbling regularly in the playoffs despite a talent-laden lineup featuring two-time league MVP Alex Ovechkin. Boudreau was replaced by former Capitals captain Dale Hunter, who was greeted by loud cheers from more than 100 fans when he skated onto the ice at Mondays practice. Hunter, never before a coach in the NHL, will make his debut behind the bench Tuesday night when Washington hosts the St. Louis Blues to begin a three-game homestand. Hired four years ago on Thanksgiving Day, Boudreau went 201-88-40 in the regular season but 17-20 in the playoffs exiting in the first or second round each time.

The Dunnellon High School girls basketball team almost had a chance to prove that Monday night while taking on Crystal River. Down by as much as 19 points, the Lady Tigers clawed back to make it a game late in the second half, before finally succumbing to the Lady Pirates, 53-42. I told my girls at halftime ... You may be up by 15, but you wont be up by 15 for long, Crystal River head coach Jason Rodgers said. Dunnellon is a scrappy bunch. They dont quit. And quitting is one thing Dunnellon didnt do. Spurred on by Tanika Jacksons 32 points, the Lady Tigers rallied to within 11 points of Crystal River with less than 3 minutes remaining. But Crystal River wouldnt let its lead slip away easily. Led by Crystal Rivers Lamechia Richburg, the Lady Pirates got physical at the boards and outrebounded the Lady Tigers all night. It led to Crystal Rivers first district win of the season. For the Lady Pirates offense, it was a team effort. Katelyn Hannigan and Jaze Eason led the team with 12 points. Megan Wells followed with 10. However, Crystal Rivers free-throw shooting enabled Dunnellon to stay within striking distance. The Lady Pirates were 5-23 for the night, giving the Lady Tigers an opportunity to close the gap. But Dunnellon did not fare much better on the line, going 9-23. Its hard to put teams away when you dont make free throws, Rodgers said. Its what we need to work on.

Associated PressORLANDO Floridas Billy Donovan earned his 400th career coaching victory as the Gators rode a 16-point halftime lead to a 96-70 win over Stetson on Monday night. Bradley Beal had 22 points and 10 rebounds and Erving Walker added 21 to lead the Gators (5-1) in the neutral court matchup at Amway Center. The Hatters (3-3) were led by Chris Perez with 20 points. Stetson stayed close early on before a 23-4 Gators run midway through the first half blew the game open. Florida relied on its outside shooting during the spurt, knocking down eight 3-pointers in the half and 14 for the game. With a short bench, the Gators still attacked the Hatters with their press on defense and were pretty effective keeping them off balance, with Stetson committing 12 turnovers in the first half alone. Florida also had 14 steals in the game. It all helped Florida get several open looks in transition from the outside and the Gators took advantage of them. No. 6 Louisville 79, Long Beach St. 66 LOUISVILLE, Ky. Chris Smith scored 18 points and No. 6 Louisville got off to a fast start to beat Long Beach State 79-66 on Monday night for the short-handed Cardinals 14th straight victory at the KFC Yum! Center. Louisville (6-0) scored the first eight points of the game and took a double-digit lead early in the first half, but couldnt pull away from Long Beach State (3-3) until the closing minute even though the 49ers never got closer than five points in the second half. Freshman Chane Behanan had 13 points and seven rebounds for Louisville, which has dealt with multiple injuries so far and was without another player when reserve guard Elisha Justice didnt dress after he broke his nose. Larry Anderson scored 17 points for the 49ers before fouling out. No. 11 Xavier 82, No. 20 Vanderbilt 70NASHVILLE, Tenn. Tu Holloway scored eight of his 24 points in overtime and No. 11 Xavier rallied from 10 down to beat 20th-ranked Vanderbilt 82-70 Monday night. The Musketeers (5-0) trailed by as much as 10. But they scored the final four points of regulation, including Mark Lyons short jumper with 6.5 seconds left to force overtime. Wells hit two free throws, and Holloway knocked down two 3-pointers to cap a 12-0 run ending with 2:27 remaining in overtime that put Xavier up 74-66. Lyons had 19 points for Xavier, and Travis Taylor added 11. John Jenkins led Vanderbilt (5-2) with 20 points. Lance Goulbourne and Jeffery Taylor had 18 apiece. The Commodores went cold after Jenkins 3 with 3:56 left put Vandy up 66-62. They didnt score again until Jenkins jumper with 2:17 left in overtime.No. 16 Marquette 88, Jacksonville 55 MILWAUKEE Jae Crowder scored a season-high 27 points to lead Marquette past Jacksonville. Darius Johnson-Odom scored 11 of his 19 points in the first half for the Golden Eagles (6-0) and helped steady a shaky offense. Delwan Grahams 13 points led the Dolphins (2-4), who played a ranked opponent for the second consecutive game. Jacksonville lost 107-62 at No. 10 Florida on Friday. Crowder scored 10 points during a 29-9 run that bridged halftime and helped turn a close game into a blowout. His 3-pointer and three-point play pushed Marquettes lead to 59-37 with 13:21 left. Marquette, playing for the first time since winning the Paradise Jam in the U.S. Virgin Islands last Monday, improved to its second 6-0 start in three seasons. No. 22 Memphis 70, Jackson State 45 MEMPHIS, Tenn. Joe Jackson scored 15 points, Chris Crawford added 14 and Memphis overcame a lackluster first half to defeat Jackson State. Memphis (3-2) outscored Jackson State 45-26 in the second half to pull away. Jenirro Bush led Jackson State (1-7) with 11 points, the only visitor to reach double figures. Memphis was coming off a less-than-impressive performance at the Maui Invitational where they lost to Michigan and in overtime to Georgetown. It dropped the Tigers from No. 8 to No. 22 in this weeks poll. Memphis, which struggled in the first half agaist Jackson State, opened the second half with 15 straight points to break open the game. The Tigers would lead by as many as 31 in the second half. doing some things (exercising) that would have kept him straight. I think he got everything back under control by sitting out a year. I think he missed football. And hes good at it. A team meeting set for Sunday night was moved to Monday afternoon before the news conference to allow Meyer to meet his players. Alabama coach Nick Saban, who played at Kent State and coached at Toledo in the Buckeye state, said he was happy for Meyer. Im sure hes excited about it, and Im excited for him that he has an opportunity to go back to his home state and be the head coach here, Saban said. I think its a wonderful opportunity and I think hell do a great job. Meyer takes over a program that is likely facing NCAA sanctions and was crippled by the forced resignation of Tressel. The Buckeyes completed their only season under Fickell with a 40-34 loss to Michigan on Saturday that snapped a seven-game winning streak to their rivals. Wolverines coach Brady Hoke underplayed the role of the head coaches in the rivalry. Ive known Urban, hes a good football coach, a good guy and I welcome him in, Hoke said on Monday. But its still Michigan and Ohio and neither one of us is going to play the game. In 10 seasons as a head coach two at Bowling Green, two at Utah and six at Florida Meyer has a 104-23 record. His teams are 7-1 in bowl games, including the Gators 41-14 victory over unbeaten and topranked Ohio State in the 2007 Bowl Championship Series title game. Meyer had persistently denied all the talk surrounding him and Ohio State. Soon after Tressel stepped down, Meyer said he wasnt interested in leaving ESPN, where he was a college football analyst. The chance to coach Ohio State changed his mind, he said. He enjoyed what he was doing, but I think he also had the bug to start coaching again, ESPN broadcast partner and former Ohio State linebacker Chris Spielman said. We just kind of talked about the pros and cons of both throughout the year. He weighed all the options and there were jobs out there that definitely captured his interest and certainly Ohio State was one of them. He decided that it was the best move. This was just an opportunity that he couldnt pass up. Meyer inherits a program still facing NCAA sanctions. But he also inherits a young team led by a freshman quarterback, Braxton Miller, who would seem to be a perfect fit for his spread offense. B2 T UESDAY, N OVEMBER29, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE C OLLEGE B ASKETBALL/F OOTBALL Associated PressSYRACUSE, N.Y. Syracuse mens basketball coach Jim Boeheim ran a closed practice Monday as sex abuse victims advocates questioned whether he should still coach the Orangemen following the firing of longtime assistant Bernie Fine, who has been accused of molestation by three men. As criticism swirled about Boeheims initial support of Fine and his verbal attacks on the accusers, the coach kept a low profile, seeking refuge in his office on the second floor of the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center. Boeheim, who had been sharply critical of the accusers, has softened his stance 10 days after an impassioned defense of Fine, who spent 35 seasons on the bench next to Boeheim and was fired Sunday. The Rev. Robert Hoatson, president of Road to Recovery, a group that supports victims of sexual abuse, said the dismissal of Bernie Fine was appropriate but didnt go far enough. I think Jim Boeheim should be fired or resign as well, Hoatson said Monday. These boys were members of the basketball program. Jim Boeheims responsibility is to oversee that program, and the children were not safe on his watch. Two former Syracuse ball boys were the first to accuse Fine, who has called the allegations patently false. And a third man came forward last week, accusing Fine of molesting him nine years ago. Bobby Davis, now 39, told ESPN that Fine molested him beginning in 1984 and the sexual contact continued until he was around 27. A ball boy for six years, Davis told ESPN the abuse occurred at Fines home, at Syracuse basketball facilities and on team road trips, including the 1987 Final Four. His stepbrother, Mike Lang, 45, who also was a ball boy, told ESPN that Fine began molesting him while he was in fifth or sixth grade. Zach Tomaselli, 23, of Lewiston, Maine, said Sunday he told police Fine molested him in 2002 in a Pittsburgh hotel room. Tomaselli, who faces sexual assault charges in Maine involving a 14-year-old boy, said Fine touched him multiple times in that one incident. During a telephone interview with The Associated Press, he said he signed an affidavit accusing Fine following a meeting with Syracuse police last week in Albany.

S COREBOARD C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, N OVEMBER29, 2011 B3 We scheduled Ocala Christian (0-2) because theyre another Christian school, Seven Rivers coach Rick Kiernan said. Its nice to see them developing the way they are as a young program. We never want to do anything to embarrass a team, he added. Our job is to play the game the right way and try to work on things. We wanted to work on our press, and we really wanted to work on our delay game. Kiernan liked much of his teams execution, but found a few areas needing some attention. Despite the lopsided outcome, the Warriors missed some easy scoring opportunities. He expects his squad to improve with time as they learn to interact more efficiently in their roles. We missed a ton of lay-ups, but those will come along, he said. Theyre in the right place at the right time, which is what you want. We moved Kayleigh to point guard this year, so everyone is on a learning curve with her at that position, he added. You never know where the pass will come from, so you have to be ready. I dont think we rebounded particularly well. We need to work on the fundamentals of catching the ball and getting the lay-ups and boxing out. If we can get those three things under control, then Ill be walking away a lot happier than I am tonight. The Warriors harassed the Crusaders all night, totaling 30 steals and rarely letting their opponent get off a quality shot. Ocala Christian junior forward Kalyn Cone led her team with six points and grabbed five rebounds. Seven Rivers sophomore forward Alexis Zachar led the night in rebounds with eight, and added six points. Her older sister, junior forward Andrea Zachar, scored a halfdozen points and collected four rebounds. Freshman guard Alyssa Gage picked up six steals for the Warriors. Seven Rivers hosts The Villages on Friday. Trey Gaskins who shined brightest. He led all scorers with 24 points and collected game-highs in rebounds (12) and steals (six). Gaskins brought what we thought he could for our team this year, Seven Rivers coach Jim Ervin said. He ran the court extremely well. He got some easy looks for himself by just working hard. Seven Rivers (1-0, 0-0) also benefited from typically superb performances from senior guard Sam Jones (11 points, eight rebounds) and sophomore guard Adam Gage (13 points). Sam and Adam are just outstanding, Ervin said. Theyre two of the better players in the area and each and every night they prove that. The Warriors were extremely successful on free throws, going 17-for-20 as a team. We struggled last year from the line and weve been working hard on shooting the ball all in the preseason, so its paying off, Ervin said. It was also a good night for displaying Seven Rivers deep bench, as they maintained pressure on the Crusaders (0-1, 0-0) all night. When we go to our bench, we dont lose much, Ervin said. (Freshman guard) Cory Wieand and (junior guard) John Iwaniec especially did a really nice job off the bench. Senior forward Henry Asber led OCA shooters with 11 points. Warriors senior forward Trey Wieand scored 10 points, and senior guard Lucas Ebert added eight points for Seven Rivers. Warriors junior guard Jared Bogart made six steals in the game. The schedule gets tougher from here for the Warriors as they host a Williston team today that is coming off back-to-back seasons where they advanced to the final four and elite eight, respectively, in the state playoffs. Thereafter, Seven Rivers will play all of its non-districts matchups against schools that are classified above 2A. L ARRYB UGG CorrespondentLecanto and Citrus High Schools girls soccer coaches agreed on one thing Monday night after their teams faced off Monday night. It was an ugly game. It was a hideous game, Lecanto coach Roselle Lattin said. Im sorry you had to see it. It was the worst game we have played all season, said Citrus coach Steve Ekeli, whose team walked away with the 2-1 victory. Ill take an ugly win. The win for Citrus (4-2) snapped the Lady Hurricanes five-game losing streak to Lecanto (6-2). Citruss Kylie Fagan started the scoring off with a goal at 32:51. She found the ball when it bounced off the Lecanto goalkeepers hands and she booted it in from five yards out. Lecantos Jessica Allen responded for the Lady Panthers. The ball bounced off the goalies hands and Allen booted it home from five yards out with less than two minutes left in the half. Citruss Kayla Lynn headed in the decisive score at 38:19 in the second half. Deycasha Miller booted the corner kick for the assist. Another piece in the ugly game was the appearance of yellow cards. The referees gave out five. Ekeli explained his team was playing boomball and not following directions. That was not a good game, he said. Coaching doesnt happen here. Coaching happens at school. We shouldnt have to coach here. From the aspect of me giving direction, they didnt do the job tonight. Ekeli said his team played better in its two previous losses. We had two pretty losses, he said. There was a lot more right that we did in the losses than we did tonight. We have to work to be more consistent. We have to work to be able to adjust. We played panic the last 20 minutes. I didnt like that. Everybody did decent. I just think we could have done much better. Lattin said it was probably her teams worst game of the season. Were coming off a fourday break, she said, noting the Thanksgiving holiday. We struggled a lot with (the) communication barrier. We really didnt look like ourselves. The biggest problem was working the ball up the center and taking the shots. Jessica Allen found a split in the defense and was able to sneak one in. The reality is this is a non-district game. It doesnt really matter.

Sports BRIEFS UCLA fires Rick Neuheisel LOS ANGELES UCLA fired coach Rick Neuheisel on Monday after four disappointing seasons in charge of his alma mater. Neuheisel will be allowed to coach the Bruins (6-6, 5-4 Pac-12) in Fridays Pac-12 title game at Oregon, athletic director Dan Guerrero announced. Offensive coordinator Mike Johnson will be the Bruins interim coach if they receive a bowl berth. Neuheisel is 21-28 since taking over the program in December 2007, never building the momentum he needed to reach his goal of challenging Southern California for city supremacy. Guerrero fired Neuheisel two days after UCLAs 50-0 loss to No. 9 USC. Astros fire GM Wade and president SmithHOUSTON The Houston Astros fired general manager Ed Wade and team president Tal Smith on Sunday night in the first of the changes promised by new owner Jim Crane. The moves come less than a week after the sale of the team from Drayton McLane to Crane was officially completed last Tuesday, a transaction that requires the franchise to move from the NL Central to the AL West in 2013. In a news conference on the day owners approved the sale on Nov. 17, Crane vowed to meet with all the executives and make some very, very quick adjustments. And he did. From wire reports Rick Neuheisel Ed Wade Associated PressST. PAUL, Minn. Minnesota coach Mike Yeo didnt flinch after his goalies rare flop. He went right back to Niklas Backstrom, and the Wild rode his glove to an important victory. Backstrom rebounded from a rough game and an early exit on an emotional evening with 32 saves, and the Wild stopped a twogame losing streak with a 31 win over Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday night. Hes been so good for us this year that he deserves that opportunity to bounce back after a game like that, Yeo said. Backstrom is 17-2-4 with a 1.91 goals against average in games after he has been pulled for performance and not injury. He, like many of the Wild players, was distracted by a ceremony honoring late teammate Derek Boogaard before Sundays game. They lost that one 5-2 to Calgary, the same score of their defeat by Edmonton on Friday. This came after they won 10 of 12 going into Thanksgiving. Backstrom said it was huge to put the previous three days behind him. You cant think too much. Its hockey. A lot of things happen to you. Just rely on yourself, work hard and play your own game, he said. Stamkos scored again for the Lightning, but they misfired on a bunch of open nets. Cal Clutterbucks short-handed goal his third this season and Pierre-Marc Bouchards goahead score in the second period gave the Wild all the offense they needed. Mikko Koivu had an assist and an empty-net goal to cap a quick, clean game that featured only four penalties. Were getting on the power play, if were lucky, twice a game, Stamkos said. I dont know if thats just a coincidence or if were not drawing enough penalties, but in order for our power play to be successful you cant have one a game and expect it to score every time. The Wild played a smart, disciplined, aggressive game to close a season-high, six-game homestand. They had good puck placement against Tampa Bays 1-3-1 trap and werent fazed after a fruitless first period.

The Virginia-based owner of the Ringling Bros. circus has agreed to pay a $270,000 fine to settle allegations that it violated federal animal-welfare laws in its handling of elephants, tigers, zebra and other exotic animals. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the civil penalty announced Monday is the largest ever assessed against an exhibitor under the Animal Welfare Act. Vienna-based Feld Entertainment, which owns the circus, said it does not admit to violating the law and agreed to the settlement as a cost of doing business to resolve its differences with the USDA.Jacksons doctor to be sentenced LOS ANGELES Michael Jacksons doctor will face the singers distraught family and ardent fans one more time when he returns to court for sentencing in the death of the superstar from an overdose of an operating-room anesthetic he was receiving to battle insomnia. Dr. Conrad Murrays sentencing Tuesday for involuntary manslaughter is the final step in the criminal case launched within days of Jacksons unexpected death in June 2009. Associated PressLOS ANGELES Doris Day, Americas pert, honey-voiced sweetheart of the 1950s and 1960s, beguiled audiences with her onscreen romances opposite top Hollywood leading men Cary Grant, Rock Hudson and Jack Lemmon. She adored and misses them all, says the 88-year-old Day. But her deepest yearning is reserved for her late son Terry Melcher, a record producer whose touch and voice are part of Days first album in nearly two decades. Oh, I wish he could be here and be a part of it. I would just love that. But it didnt work out that way, Day said, her voice subdued. Its a voice rarely heard since she withdrew from Hollywood in the early 1980s to the haven she made for herself in the northern California town of Carmel, where Clint Eastwood was once mayor. My Heart, set for a Dec. 2 U.S. release, has induced Day to edge back to public attention. The CD includes 13 previously unreleased tracks recorded over a 40-year span, including covers of Joe Cockers You Are So Beautiful, the Lovin Spoonfuls Daydream and a handful of standards. All proceeds go to Days longtime cause, animal welfare. A condensed version of the album was released in Britain earlier this fall and landed on the top 10 chart. Melcher, who worked with bands including the Byrds and the Beach Boys, produced most of the songs and sang on two. He died of melanoma in 2004 at age 62, leaving a void that draws tears from Day when she speaks of him. I loved doing it and having Terry with me. That was important, just for me, she said in an interview from Carmel. I wouldnt think it would be what it is. ... I just love that he is on it. And I miss him terribly, but I have that. The albums release coincides with new recognition for the actress and singer. It was announced this week that her recording of Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be), featured in Alfred Hitchcocks 1956 thriller The Man Who Knew Too Much starring Day and Jimmy Stewart, will be included in the Grammy Hall of Fame. In January, Day is to be honored with the Los Angeles Film Critics Associations career achievement award. And that career was storied. She once ruled the box office in a string of fluffy comedies including Pillow Talk with Hudson (which earned her a best actress nomination) and That Touch of Mink opposite Grant, movies that showcased her verve and fresh-faced sexiness. Her sweet vocals helped make hits of pop tunes including Sentimental Journey and Oscar-winners Que Sera, Sera and Secret Love. On screen, Day often played the determined single career girl who could be swept off her feet (but never into premarital sex) by such irresistible suitors as Grant or three-time co-star Hudson. She was also the loving wife and mother in such movies as Please Dont Eat the Daisies (1960), with David Niven. Day came off as a straight-shooter who didnt let her beauty go to her head; she was no Mad Men toy. Granted, she was too ladylike to fit the definition of a dame, in the parlance of her early career. But she could hold her ground without fraying the hem of her tone-perfect cinematic femininity, or her co-stars masculinity. She ventured into exceptions to her signature romantic-comedies, most notably the Hitchcock thriller and Love Me or Leave Me from 1955, in which Day played jazz singer Ruth Etting in the story of Ettings career and tempestuous marriage. Day said she had no quarrel with the studio system under which she worked, one in which her films were largely dictated. She had stumbled into the craft, after all, pushed from band and club singer to actress by her agent. Day got the first role she tested for, in 1948s Romance on the High Seas, and sailed on from there. I was just put there, put there, put there. And Ive never gotten over that. How could life be so good for me and I was never looking? I was never looking for it, she said. As for her personal life, she said, There are always things that you go through that arent perfect. For Day, that included three divorces and widowhood. When her third husband died, she learned that he and a business partner had lost her multimillion-dollar fortune. (She righted herself to some extent with the 1968-73 sitcom The Doris Day Show, and a lawsuit.) Her decision to leave Los Angeles and the industry behind was an impromptu one, Day said. She had regularly visited Carmel-By-TheSea, decided it suited her and made the move up the California coast and away. I just loved what I was doing. But then, when I came up here, I thought well, I had my turn, and thats just fine. And the other people are coming up and starring and it was their turn. I didnt think a thing about not working, she said. Instead, she devoted herself to promoting the well-being of animals with the Doris Day Animal Foundation, which she created in 1978 and which is the new albums beneficiary. Her own pets, including some half-dozen cats, have it good: She built a glassceiling extension off her house so the felines can enjoy the view without the risks of going outside. Why the attention to animals? Theyre the most perfect things on Earth, Day said. Theyre loyal. They love you. And theyll never forget you. ... I think theyre put here for us to learn what love is all about. Theyre also steadfast companions as her circle of family and friends has been narrowed by death. Shes still in regular touch with two-time co-star James Garner who shares anecdotes about their working relationship in his newly published autobiography, The Garner Files but she notes sadly how many other colleagues have passed away. Although dampened by loss, the buoyancy that infused her work in movies and music remains part of Day. In her ninth decade of life, however, the pace has changed. Life Is Just a Bowl of Cherries (Life is just a bowl of cherries. So live and laugh at it all), a snappy tune and a favorite since she danced to it as a 5-year-old in Cincinnati, is on her new album. But the arrangement has turned it into beautiful ballad, Day said. A new Day rises Todays Birthday Your chart for the year ahead indicates a great deal of new activities and moving about.

In the crosshairs Medicare back on the brink over cuts to doctors R ICARDO A LONSOZ ALDIVAR Associated Press WASHINGTON P oliticians of both parties outdo each other vying for the approval of seniors, but their inability to compromise on the federal budget has put Medicare in the crosshairs again. Unless Congress acts before Jan. 1, doctors face a 27 percent cut in their fees for treating Medicare patients. That could undermine health care for millions of elderly and disabled beneficiaries. Last year around the holidays doctors were looking at a cut of about 20 percent. Its become a recurring symbol of the governments budget dysfunction. The cuts are the consequence of a 1990s budget law that failed to control spending but never got repealed. Congress passes a temporary fix each time, only to grow the size of reductions required next time around. The supercommittees breakdown leaves the so-called doc fix unresolved with time running out. A thousand miles away in Harlan, Iowa, Dr. Don Klitgaard is trying to contain his frustration. I dont see how primary care doctors could take anywhere near like a 27 percent pay cut and continue to function, said Klit gaard, a family physician at a local medical center. I assume theres going to be a temporary fix, because the health care system is going to implode without it. Medicare patients account for about 45 percent of the visits to his clinic. Klitgaard said the irony is that he and his colleagues have been making improvements, keeping closer tabs on those with chronic illnesses in the hopes of avoiding needless hospitalizations. While that can save money for Medicare, it requires considerable upfront investment from the medical practice. The threat of a huge cut makes it very difficult to continue down this road, said Klitgaard, adding its almost comical lawmakers would let the situation get so far out of hand. Theres nothing to laugh about, says a senior Washington lobbyist closely involved with the secretive supercommittee deliberations. The health care industry lobbyist, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to make public statements, said lawmakers of both parties wanted to deal with the cuts to doctors, but a fundamental partisan divide over tax increases blocked progress of any kind. The main options now before Congress include a one-year or two-year fix. The problem is the cost. Congress used to add it to the federal deficit, but lawmakers cant get away with that in these fiscally austere times. Instead, they must find about $22 billion in offsets for the one-year option, $35 billion for the two-year version. A permanent fix would cost about $300 billion over 10 years, making it much less likely. Its going to be a real challenge, and theres not a lot of time to play pingpong, said the lobbyist. Its entirely possible given past performance that Congress misses the deadline. Congressional leaders of both parties have said that wont happen. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., says the Medicare fix is too important not to get done before the end of the year. His House counterpart, Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp, RMich., agrees. But how? The endgame for a complex negotiation also involving expiring tax cuts, unemployment benefits and dozens of lesser issues H EALTH & L IFE S ince my first column in the Chronicle in February 1997, I have written many times about the benefits of exercise. And this benefit is not just related to cancer, but heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure. But from a cancer standpoint, the numbers are enormous. Researchers have linked nearly 50,000 cases of breast cancer, and more than 40,000 cases of colon cancer per year to a simple lack of activity.

Joseph Bennett AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY Activity lowers your cancer risk See BENNETT / Page C2 Dr. Sunil Gandhi CANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Do not assume it aint broke I recently saw a 67year-old gentleman. He was a strong believer in the proverb, If it aint broke, dont fix it. Since he was feeling fine, he assumed everything was fine. Therefore, he never went to see a physician. The problem is, the body is very complex and many times, you do not feel any problem until it is too late. So many times we do not realize that it is broken and we assume it is not broken. Unfortunately, he had high blood pressure and he never realized it. High See GANDHI / Page C2 W ounds of any type, whether accidental or created by surgery, will eventually heal, sometimes better than other times, depending on certain factors. The following paragraphs are an effort to explain wound healing, and why sometimes it is better than others. As doctors, we must remember that the patient may be very concerned about how their wound heals. For the patient, it may be a more profound issue than it is for the doctor on how the wound ultimately turns out. No one wants a scar (especially not on the face). It is impossible to avoid a scar after surgery; however, they can be minimized. First of all, lets try to understand what goes on in wound healing. There are actually four stages. The first stage occurs within seconds to minutes, and is a direct result of bleeding into the wound area, which brings components of the blood to the site of the injury to begin the wound healing process. Substances in the blood, including platelets, will start clot formation, which allows these products in the blood to accumulate around the wound and begin the initial phase. The next stage of wound healing is inflammation. Other parts of blood components are relegated to do this next phase Stages of wound healing T odays column is going to be a little different. It is a story about me past to present. It all started about 23 years ago. That was when I was finishing up building the office I am still in. Since dental offices send work to labs on a regular basis I was in need of a box outside my office to put case work in for the lab to pick up. I asked my builder, Bill Burns, who he would recommend to weld me a box that could be attached to the building next to the side door. He suggested Joe Ronzo. Knowing the attention to detail that Bill Burns put into things, I knew I was going to be happy with his recommendation. I called Joe Ronzo and we met. Right off the bat I knew I was going to be happy. My parents raised both my brother and me to appreciate quality. Joe knew exactly what I needed. He explained how he was going to build it and fasten it to the building. Again, I knew I would be happy. If any of you know Joe, you know how easy he is to talk to what a great personality he has. We ended up becoming friends. While my office was being built I ended up being unemployed. This worked out to be fine. I was able to watch things progress and be certain they were as I expected.

Data and research to support this was recently presented at The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) Annual Conference. The figures really highlight the important role that both activity and inactivity play in the development of specific cancers. While many people try to blame chemicals in the food supply, air quality or genetic abnormalities, the plain truth is that we the people are far more lazy today than we were a hundred years ago, and in some respects, we just have ourselves to blame for our ailments. Other causes of cancer that can be controlled include tobacco use, alcohol use and sun exposure. Yes, we are to blame for many of the problems we face each day, and if we want to, we can change the odds. Can anyone ever guarantee that they will not have cancer? No. But you can lower your risk. On the basis of the findings, the AICR is urging people to not only get more exercise, but also try simple things, like getting away from your desk for one to two minutes per hour. It could be as simple as walking up and down a flight of stairs, walking around the block or even around the building. To get the full impact, we all need to make time to get at least half an hour of moderate to vigorous activity every day. This is not simply an example of me urging you to do something based upon personal thoughts; it is backed with hard science. Researchers recently presented findings from the Alberta Physical Activity and Breast Cancer Prevention (ALPHA) Trial. The latest results from this trial involve C-reactive protein, a marker of inflammation, which is linked to cancer risk. In a study appearing in the October issue of the journal Cancer Prevention Research, moderate to vigorous daily activity reduced C-reactive protein levels among postmenopausal women. Researchers have not yet identified how inflammation increases cancer risk; it is known, though, that the inflammation process produces chemicals called cytokines, which are immune-response chemicals that encourage cell growth and reproduction, and suppress cell death that contribute to an increased cancer risk. What does all of this mean? Well, in breast and colon cancers, for example, were seeing overall risk reductions of about 25 percent to 30 percent associated with higher levels of physical activity. With prostate cancer, the evidence isnt as strong, but its still there about 10 percent to 20 percent lower risk. For uterine cancer, we are finding about 30 percent to 35 percent risk reduction with more physical activity. So, lets be creative, and increase our physical activity. Stand up and walk around when you are on the phone, something that many people (including my daughters) seem to do subconsciously to the point of annoying everyone else. Now, its apparently good for your health. Use some light dumbbells or hand weights while at your desk. Take short breaks to walk up and down the hallway and visit your co-workers or get some water. Basically anything and everything that gets you up out of your chair for a few minutes per hour restores healthy circulation and reduces the risks of a buildup of inflammation and other cancer markers. These little things could make a huge impact in your life.

It does not hurt for a while, but when it does, it can cause serious, irreparable damage. That is what happened in my patients case. One day, he found he could not move the left side of his body and he was rushed to the hospital. He was diagnosed as having a stroke due to uncontrolled high blood pressure. In the hospital, he had mild lowering of platelet count and so he was referred as an outpatient to see me in the office. On my examination, I found he had an enlarged spleen. I performed a bone marrow aspiration and biopsy and it showed that my patient has low-grade nonHodgkins lymphoma. This is also indolent lymphoma. These types of lymphoma grow very slowly and often have spread by the time they are diagnosed. Most patients with indolent NHL have advanced disease when they first visit an oncologist (a doctor who specializes in treating cancer). This type of lymphoma usually responds well to several different types of treatment, but it may come back months or years after treatment is complete. Due to his stroke, he can walk but needs help with a walker. He is not at all confused. I had a long discussion with him and his wife. They understand the diagnosis and prognosis fairly well. He had an enlarged spleen that was causing some pain; also, he had low blood counts. He was complaining of some night sweats, which is a classical symptom of lymphoma. I decided to treat him with Rituxan. This is not chemo therapy and it does not cause hair loss or nausea or vomiting. It is a targeted therapy which affects mainly cancer cells and not normal cells. It is called a monoclonal antibody. He just started the treatment and he is already feeling better. I hope that with physical therapy and other treatment for his stroke, he will be able to walk normally without any walker. Remember, it is very important to get regular physical examination by a physician at least once a year. We all need to get preventive checkups with simple blood tests to rule out high cholesterol and some other important blood tests. If you dont go to a doctor, the problem does not go away; it always shows up eventually and most times in much worse fashion. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

the office, I saw Joes welding truck across the street from my office. I stopped by to say hello and shoot the breeze with him. While he was diligently fixing the air conditioner on the roof of the building that was once Brothers Bar, Joe proudly mentioned that one of his sons was in medical school and was planning on becoming a spine surgeon. I was obviously impressed and touched to see Joes eyes light up when he spoke of his son. Present day ... About three weeks ago, I had been going to my chiropractor, Dr. Horn, to help with this shooting pain that started in my right buttocks and went down my right leg into my calf. It prevented me from sitting too long and was becoming increasingly hard to manage. Although I was receiving excellent chiropractic care, it was not taking care of the pain and I was becoming frustrated. Then on one fateful morning, our 7 a.m. hygiene patient walked in the door and who do you think it was? Joe Ronzo. Only this time it was not Joe Ronzo the welder; it was Joe Ronzo the spine surgeon. Since that day long ago when his father spoke of him, I have had the pleasure of becoming friendly with the younger Joe, as a fellow parent at our childrens school, and later, as he did surgery on my dad and took care of my wifes back issues. After checking Joes teeth I asked if he had a minute and he said, without hesitation, that he did. We went into my office and I explained what was going on. He suggested a form of therapy that I tried at home. After a weekend of doing this with no benefit, I called him on Monday and he suggested an MRI. I advised Dr. Horn of this and went for the MRI. The next morning, I promptly received a call from Dr. Ronzo who said, Guess what, Frank. You have a cyst between L4 and L5 that is pressing on a nerve causing the pain you are experiencing. I asked him about my options. He explained the nonsurgical method and then the surgical method. I chose the surgical route and guess who did the surgery yep, Dr. Joe Ronzo. I sit here tonight with no pain. No pain in my buttocks and no pain down my leg. I do not even have any surgical pain. Joe did the surgery on the Monday before Thanksgiving and I left the hospital that day and was able to walk out of the car and into my home with no problem. By Wednesday night I went out to dinner with our good friends, Steve and Patty. Steve was the nurse anesthetist that put me to sleep. Thanks Steve for all that you did. I appreciate you coming in on your week off to take great care of me. It was painless and I dont remember a thing yeah!! All I can say is Joe Ronzo, the dad, you did a great job with Joe Ronzo, the surgeon! He evidently learned a lot from you over the years about kindness, compassion and expertise. I am fully aware that without the education Joe received he could not do what he did. However, I believe that, just as important as that education, is the example you set for Joe Jr. I am sure you taught him about doing things right the first time, always giving it your best and paying attention to the details. The guy who welded my package box was not just a welder; he was a craftsman that always showed a sense of pride in what he did. The surgeon that removed my cyst was not just a surgeon, he was a man who was taught to be thorough and passionate about anything he does. In closing, I, of course what to thank Dr. Joe Ronzo for what an awesome job he did. I am truly amazed and grateful for how I feel right now. And, of course, I must give special thanks to Joe Ronzo, Sr. for all the effort he put into his son. Thanks for getting up on that roof at Brothers Bar and helping pay all those bills to get your kid through school so that he could become the awesome surgeon he is today. Thanks one more time to the awesome team that took care of me: Dr. Joe Ronzo and staff, Dr. Roy Horn and staff, Steve Johnson and all the great staff at Citrus Memorial Health System. Thanks so much!

VASCIMINIContinued from Page C1 of the wound healing. This process starts within the first 24 hours, and can last up to days as they carry on the wound healing process and reconstruction. The third phase of healing is called proliferation, which is a repair phase that will also start about one hour after the initial wound, and can last up to three or four weeks. This involves phases where blood vessels are being developed and growing into the wound site to help provide nutrition for the continued repair. At this point, you will see a product called collagen playing a factor in starting the scar tissue formation to begin to lend strength to the wound edge. Granulation tissue, as it is called, is sometimes called proud flesh in simple terms. It tends to be pinkreddish, and is sometimes thick and lumpy. The fourth and final phase of wound healing is called maturing. This process can last up to one year in some instances. As the wound matures, the blood vessels that have grown into the wound to bring blood and nutrients to the area to help the healing process will start to fade away, thus you start to see the wound become less red and pink, and more like the surrounding normal tissue. We also start seeing an increased strength in the wound, and the wound will eventually re-mottle and look normal, or nearly as normal as the surrounding tissue that has not been violated. The final result is an area that is healed up and may have about 80 percent of the original strength in that area, but should not pose any major problems to the patient. Wound healing itself can be affected by factors in ones own body, as well as outside factors. This includes age, illness and immune status, which of course should be good to get optimal results, and ones tendency to form thick scars and/or keloid scars. Certain hereditary diseases can affect wound healing, as well as chronic disease states, such as lung, heart, and liver. An example for this might be diabetes. Outside factors that can influence healing is diet, malnutrition, smoking, alcoholism, drug use, poor oxygen levels that could be related to secondhand smoke, and also previously treated cancers and diseases. Patients sometimes go through radiation and chemotherapy that can sometimes affect wound healing. Lastly, some medications can inhibit the wound healing process. This includes steroids, blood thinners and anticoagulants, to name a few. Agents that help wound healing include: cleansing to avoid local infection, and good wound closure, whether it is a Band-Aid, Steri-Strip or sutures. Once the wound scar is on its way and obviously doing well, there are some products that can be used to help scar formation and the outcome, and the look of the wound. One of the most common and widely available over-thecounter products is actually an extract from onion. Some doctors and scientists feel that it is a 50/50 chance whether this truly makes a difference or not. Other products that were derived from silicone have shown some promise to help wound healing. Whatever the case, always remember to handle a wound gently so as not to further traumatize it. Use clean and sterile techniques in wound care, and remember that the healing process goes on for weeks and months, and that it is weaker than normal tissue, so therefore guard it and protect it from any further physical injury, and keep it out of direct sunlight so as it can heal and have the same coloration of the surrounding non-traumatized tissue.

H EALTH& L IFE C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, N OVEMBER29, 2011 C3 Bristol Stool Scale classifies bowel movements Q : I have constipation and my stool comes out in a cluster of round balls (illustration enclosed). I take a mild vegetable laxative, but Im not getting the right solid smooth waste outgo. What do you think? A: Thank you for your letter and illustration. Stools are often classified into seven types, based upon the Bristol Stool Scale, which was developed at the University of Bristol, United Kingdom in 1997. This scale is based upon how much time the stool spends in the colon, with Type 1 being in the colon the most time and Type 7 being in the colon the shortest time. According to the Bristol Stool Form Scale, the seven types of stool, according to their appearance in the toilet water, are as follows: Type 1: Separate hard lumps, like nuts (hard to pass). Type 2: Sausage-shaped, but lumpy. Type 3: Like a sausage but with cracks on its surface. Type 4: Like a sausage or snake, smooth and soft. Type 5: Soft blobs with clear cut edges (passed easily). Type 6: Fluffy pieces with ragged edges, a mushy stool. Type 7: Watery, no solid pieces (entirely liquid). Constipation is the most common digestion-related complaint in the United States. It is usually described as a condition in which a person has uncomfortable or infrequent bowel movements. Many people think they should have a bowel movement at least once a day. In general, however, as many as three bowel movements per day to as few as three per week is considered normal. Although constipation can affect people of all ages, there appears to be an increased prevalence among people 65 years and older. The incidence of constipation is about 5 percent in people aged 65 to 74, and it rises to about 10 percent in those older than 75. Adult women are also more likely to suffer from constipation than men. The average weight of a stool is about 3 1/2 ounces, but it varies a lot. About 75 percent of the stool is water, but most of this water is locked up inside of bacteria and undigested plant cells. Half to two-thirds of the stool is bacteria and the rest is mainly undigested residues of plant foods (fiber). Please discuss your stool concerns with your doctor to determine if any additional tests or treatment is necessary. Richard P Hoffmann, Pharm.D., has been a pharmacist for more than 40 years.

They have to come up with a solution, and they will have to appear to pay for that solution, and that will be contentious, said economist Robert Reischauer, one of the public trustees who oversees Medicare and Social Security financing. One option: cut other parts of Medicare. Another: trim back spending under the health care overhaul law. Either of those approaches would mobilize opposition. A nonpartisan panel advising lawmakers is recommending doctors share the pain of a permanent fix with a 10-year freeze for primary care physicians and cuts followed by a freeze for specialists. Doctors arent buying that. The Obama administration says seniors and their doctors have nothing to fear. But doctors are becoming increasingly irritated about dealing with Medicare. Surveys have shown that many physicians would consider not taking new Medicare patients if the cuts go through. Some primary care doctors are going into concierge medicine, limiting their practice to patients able to pay a fee of about $1,500 a year, a trend that worries advocates for the elderly. Ultimately, the solution is an overhaul of Medicares payment system so doctors are rewarded for providing quality, cost-effective care, said Mark McClellan, an economist and medical doctor who served as Medicare administrator for President George W. Bush. That continues to elude policymakers. Instead, the threat of payment cuts has become a holiday tradition, said McClellan. Its just not a very enjoyable one.

I t was a gathering of men, women, youths and children at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Inverness for the 12th annual Celebration of Life Gala of the Life Choice Care Center. Thirty tables filled the huge hall and 37 youths from Citrus High and Hernando and home-schoolers served the tables with professional care for those in their assigned station. Interdenominational churches mingled and shared their triumphs and challenges during the social hour. We learned that the Inverness-based center is planning a Crystal River area center in the near future and that volunteers are needed. Speakers are available by calling the center at (352) 341-5176. The mission of the Life Choice Care Center, at 305 S. Line Ave., Inverness, is to uphold the sanctity of human life by proclaiming the personal witness of Jesus Christ. The stated 2011 goals outlined in the program are: To create an environment and opportunity to clearly and compassionately present the Gospel to each client. To attract young women who are pregnant or possibly pregnant to the center in order to engage them in prolife dialog. To encourage clients to practice a biblical standard of sexual purity. To provide a comprehensive ministry to client education. Services provided by the center include free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds at the Genesis Womens Center, options counseling, parenting classes, relationships counseling, abstinence education, post-abortion support, and maternity and baby resources. Kathy Davis serves as executive director and Karen Yurkovich serves as the bookkeeper. Maureen Baird is the vice chairwoman of the board. Pastor Marple Lewis is the board secretary and the Rev. Joe Maddox serves as the director. Volunteers are Marilyn Berg, Meril Chergwin, Amanda Connolly, Ginger Hiley, Carole Kenper, Shirley Lane, Emily McGeoch, Joyce Schirmer, Sandy Stokes, Anne Stratton, Joan Vitale and Boules. Volunteer training is done twice a year. Sponsors for this years gala were Omie and Madge Benson, Citrus County Right to Life, Floyd and Jo Ford, Drs. Steve and Julie Howard, Casey and Faye Kearse, Nick and Lynda Ford, Nicholas, Jon and Renee Snyder, Suzanne Fuller, Nature Coast Baptist Association and Provident Security Inc. 19 Sports. This years banquet committee included members of Cornerstone Baptist Church, Steven Hannie for the printing services, Hap Hough, WTI chef for the food preparation, Sharon Perry for food preparation, Marlene Moran for table decorations, Amanda Connolly as banquet coordinator and Bradley Looper, media specialist. Kathy Davis, executive director, was a six-year volunteer prior to her appointment. Expressing the joy in being a part of the ongoing ministry, she noted that the centers counseling to men and women has assisted with the birth of 12 babies and four adoptions recently. Housing, transportation and medical assistance is ongoing. Accountability, earning while learning and parenting classes are mainstays of the center. Guest speaker, the Rev. Chris Whaley, was an original member of the body of pastors and laymen who envisioned and birthed the center. A graduate of Palm Beach Atlantic University and Southwestern Theological Seminary and formerly the pastor of Beverly Hills Baptist Church, he is the pastor of First Baptist Church of Longwood. He kept us in stitches with his unrivaled humorous pastoral anecdotes, Will Rogers style. Among his zingers were: Laughter is the suntan lotion on the sunshine of life. Always remember you are unique, just like everyone else. If at first you dont succeed, maybe skydiving is not for you. Never take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night. He remarked that it is our responsibility to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. It makes all the difference in the world to each one who comes to the Life Choice Care Center. Make an impact on their lives with their life-changing, dire decisions. Ways to help include supplying items for the baby room and donating professional services. Other ministries to be added include a job corps, maternity home, satellite centers and an adoption agency. Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community.

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, N OVEMBER29, 2011 C5 Victor Mollo wrote many stories about his menagerie of bridge players. He died in 1987, but recently some unpublished articles surfaced. They have been put, along with some previously published material, into The Hog Takes to Precision (Master Point Press). The chapters in which the Hideous Hog uses the Precision Club bidding system to make life easier for his partners, especially the Rueful Rabbit, are terrific. The others I had seen before. If you have never read any of Mollos stories, get an older book first, perhaps the original Bridge in the Menagerie, to become acquainted with the characters, then turn to this volume. In this deal from the book, two diamonds was an inverted minor-suit raise, showing 10-plus points and denying a four-card or longer major. Two spades was a Hog special, in principle showing a spade stopper and denying a heart stopper. Three spades by the Rueful Rabbit was a transfer bid, asking his partner to bid three no-trump. Now West understandably chose a heart lead. Since it was a pair event, every trick was vital. The Hog won with his jack, cashed the heart king, crossed to the diamond queen, took the heart ace, discarding a spade, and ran the diamonds, bringing everyone down to four cards. East, knowing South had the spade ace, believed he couldnt have the club king, because that would have given him 18 points, enough for a one-club opening. So she discarded three clubs. Now the Hog ended with 12 tricks for a cold top.

The first week, there was a new girl, Molly.No one talked to her except me. I made her laugh, and we had fun at lunch. She became my only friend in that class. Two weeks later, Scarlettarrived. At lunch the next day, Molly asked Scarlett to sit with us. They started talking about stuff I didnt know anything about. Within days, they were cracking jokes and discussing a sleepover at Mollys. I felt totally left out. I was Mollys friend first, and then she just tossed me aside to make way for Scarlett. When Scarlett isnt there, Molly and I talk just like before. But when Scarlett comes back, Im invisible. Im fed up. What should I do? Forgotten Friend Dear Friend: We know this hurts, but the truth is, you do not have a monopoly on Mollys affections simply because you discoveredher first. It is, however, rude for her to have discussions with Scarlett in your presence when you are excluded from participating, and you should tell her so. You sound like a friendly, welcoming person. Please use your social skills to make connections with others in your classes. Molly should not be the only fish in your swimming pool. Dear Annie: Each month, we have a family dinner at a different restaurant. I do not have much choice about which one, since I am gluten and lactose intolerant and also a vegetarian. At our last dinner (a steakhouse), I ordered a $10 salad. My brothers and sisters and their spouses and kids ordered appetizers, meals, drinks and desserts. When the bill came, they wanted to divide it by the number of persons, which meant roughly $100 per person. I objected, since all I ate was a salad. I was accused of being cheap, but I stood my ground and paid separately. Now some of them are angry, and I have not been invited out since. I am not as financially well off as the others, and $100 would have been a burden for me. Is there anything I can do to be included again? M. Dear M.: It sounds as if your siblings are the cheap ones, trying to get you to pay for their drinks and desserts. Talk to one of the siblings who isnt angry with you and explain your position. While it is extremely unfair of them to take advantage of you this way, you still are a member of the family and would like to be included in these monthly excursions. Ask how to make things more equitable. (We recommend you ask for a separate check, or put drinks and dessert on a separate tab.) Dear Annie: I am writing in response to In the Middle,whose son is caring for his grandmother. There are federal and state funded programs supporting the Family Caregivers Act. The family caregiver must be credentialed through a home care registry to receive payment. Additionally, when the family caregiver needs a break, a replacement would be provided. Respite should also be considered to relieve the grandson, whether that means a home care agency to send a replacement or putting Grandma in an adult daycare for the day. In taking care of her, the grandson has gained valuable skills that he could then apply toward a career in home care. Many home care agencies offer free training to become a home health aide. The sisters should contact their local Office on Aging and have Moms situation evaluated. The ombudsman will then inform them of available services to assist them in keeping Mom at home, while eliminating the conflict in the family. And please tell the grandson to check out caring.com. This website offers great information for the family caregiver. Kathy Roberts, medical administrator, Advance HomeHealth Care Dear Kathy Roberts: Thank you for your informative and useful suggestions. We hope the grandson will follow through.

A new, more powerful 3.6liter V-6 engine becomes the sole engine offered in the SRX. Its rated at 308 horsepower and 265 lb.-ft. of torque. Spicy Cadillac SRX is Cayenne Pepper for the Road I f youve been looking for an American luxury crossover vehicle that delivers the finesse and driving dynamics of a European SUV, then put the 2012 Cadillac SRX on your list. This big sport-crossover vehicle with a curb weight of 4,442 pounds doesnt lumber around the road. Its graceful. But dont let the SRXs polite and easy manners fool you. The SRX has the punch of a macho body-builders strength. The folks at Cadillac will flex their muscles and tell it to you straight: they are making big conquest sales from import owners with the SRX. Sales are up 17 percent in the first half of 2011 and sales in 2010 were up 150 percent from the previous year. Obviously, the SRX is getting it right for Cadillac. The front-wheel-drive SRX is offered in Base, Luxury, Performance and Premium collections starting at about $34,615. An all-wheel-drive configuration is also offered. New for 2012, the SRX houses under its sleek hood a more powerful 3.6-liter V-6 engine. The only engine offered on the SRX lineup, its coupled to a Hydra-Matic six-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission. The driver now has the option of selecting the transmissions Eco feature for better fuel efficiency of up to 1 mile per gallon. Our tester, the front-wheel-drive Premium model priced at $45,975, had EPA-estimated fuel ratings of 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway. The engine and transmission worked smoothly together, which was especially noticeable under hard acceleration. The shift points were imperceptible. The SRX powerplant horsepower is rated 308 at 6,800 rpm and the torque production is 265 lb.-ft. at 2,400 rpm. Providing our SRX Premium with its gracious road manners is a four-wheel independent suspension system. The power-assisted variableeffort and speed-sensitive rack-and-pinion steering are perfectly matched in this vehicle. Our tester featured the new-for-2012 standard 20inch machined-face wheels. Eighteen-inch wheels are standard on the Base and Luxury collections. The five-passenger, fivedoor SRX offers great room inside and ease-of-use for accessing the 29.2 cubic feet of cargo volume in the rear with the convenient power liftgate that has a control button to modulate how high the gate lifts. Cargo room expands to 61.2 cu.-ft. with the second row folded flat. Maximum towing is just 3,500 pounds when equipped with the optional trailering package. Giving the SRX its dynamic European road-worthy flair are a number of important exterior styling cues. The 2012 SRX is set off with a wide stance, minimal overhangs and wheels pushed to the corner all working together to portray an ample and robust machine. On our tester the adaptive forward lighting and high-intensity discharge headlamps kept us moving adeptly through night driving. On the inside, Cadillac has made a few minor revisions to the 2012 model. The SRX now features Bluetooth phone connectivity on all models. Theres a heated steering wheel as standard on the top three collections and door lock switches are now on the door panels as well as on the center console. Two of the delightful luxury surprises are the navigation systems the threedimensional imaging, plus the screen rises from the center of the dashboard and we really liked the classy touch of the Cadillac signature name inscribed on the door sill plates which illuminate when the door opens. Cadillac is experiencing great success with the SRX. Its one of their finest products in their portfolio. Available in three trims LX, EX, and SX the Kia Optima adds numerous packaging and technology enhancements and new consumer-friendly amenities to provide a more upscale feel. On the outside, the 2012 Optima receives standard chrome accented exterior door handles, fog lights, heated outside mirrors, and new automatic light control on LX models while LED tail lights a re now standard on EX models. The 2012 Optima is available in two fuel-efficient engines featuring gasoline direct injection, including a 200-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder or a 274-horsepower 2.0-liter turbo engine. A 2.4-liter hybrid engine also is availNEW ON WHEELS BY CONNIE KEANE, Motor Matters 2012 KIA OPTIMA POP CARPETS More than 4 million plastic bottles could be diverted from landfills by putting them in the all-new Ford Escape. The next Ford Escape uses 25 recycled 20ounce plastic bottles in the carpeting of each vehicle. Its the first time Ford has used this type of carpeting in an SUV. Its a good use of recycled product and keeps it out of landfills, said Laura Sinclair, a materials engineer for Ford. Part of the recipe to improve the carpet involves adding more plastic bottles to the mix. The polyester fibers created from pop bottles make up a nonwoven carpet material, Sinclair said.

How was she to know that years later she would have her own classic car to display? After she married Larry Grisham, Darges told her husband about wonderful childhood memories of attending car shows. What better gift for his wife, Grisham thought, than to give her an antique model? He began shopping for a restored vehicle that was in turnkey condition. He rejected several very nice cars simply because they were too popular. He didnt want a common car for his wife. He wanted something out of the ordinary, something with a smidgen of rarity. In the spring of 2010 Grishams perseverance and patience were rewarded. In the Pacific Northwest, he discovered a 1929 Plymouth coupe Model U for sale. He learned that the car had been restored in 1986 in northern California and had received excellent care since then. Many photographs were provided and much information divulged as the prospective buyer and the seller engaged in a three-month-long dialog. The sale was made in the first week of June 2010 and the 1929 Plymouth was loaded onto a truck for what turned out to be a journey of five weeks. The Plymouth arrived near the Grishams Nokesville, Va., home on July 8, 2010 and had to be pushed off the truck because the 175.4-cubic-inch, four-cylinder engine would not start. Five weeks of shaking in the back of the truck had loosened some electrical connections, as well as a few mechanical parts. After undergoing a thorough examination where all loose fittings were tightened, the Plymouth was presented to Katherine Darges Grisham. It is so pretty, she says with an appreciative smile. The Chrysler Corporation introduced the first Plymouth models in 1928 in order to compete with Ford and Chevrolet. The new cars featured four-wheel hydraulic brakes, full pressure engine lubrication, aluminum alloy pistons and an independent hand brake, all for the bargain price of only $655. Model U Plymouths for 1929 came in three styles: roadster, sedan and coupe. A total of 108,345 Model U Plymouths were manufactured in 1929. The L-head engine is virtually free of vibration thanks to the rubber motor mounts, a first in 1929. The engine delivers 45 horsepower and the heat it generates is vented through the 19 louvers on each side of the engine hood. There is no cowl ventilator but occupants in the cabin can get a face full of fresh air by raising the windshield a couple of inches with the use of a hand crank. The driver has a windshield wiper that is suspended from above the windshield and is vacuum powered. The sparse dashboard has no glove compartment, however, there is a storage pocket on the right door. Extra lateral room is gained by not having armrests on the doors. Both the gearshift lever and handbrake sprout from the floor. At the center of the four-spoke steering wheel is the horn button. To the left of the hub is a lever to activate the two 8.5-inch headlights and the single tail/brake light on the left rear fender. A lever on the right side of the hub is the hand throttle. As was common 82 years ago, the battery is positioned beneath the floor under the drivers feet. At the rear of the Plymouth is the fuel tank. The gasoline gauge is not inside on the dashboard but near the right end of the tank. A side-draft, single barrel carburetor drinks from the 11-gallon tank. Each wheel, wrapped with a 4.75x19inch tire, has a dozen wooden spokes. An attempt at providing privacy was made by mounting a window shade above the rear window. The trunk is amazingly huge. Despite its size, the spare tire is on the outside, which necessitates a twopiece rear bumper. In 1929 the Plymouth could have been ordered with or without bumpers. With no bumpers the car is a hair less than 13 feet long. Bumpers add a foot and an inch to the length of the car. Whenever Mrs. Grisham steps up on the running board of her Plymouth she is wearing a smile as she enters the green car with black fenders trimmed with white pin striping. It runs strong, Grisham says proudly. Would you like your car to be considered for an upcoming article? E-mail us your jpeg image, plus brief details and phone number.

We drive local flat roads and once a month we drive up to the mountains with a load of four people and luggage. My dealer said I needed rear brakes, and had about 4,000 miles left. The fronts had 50 percent life left. We never replaced the fronts yet. My concern is that in all my years of driving the fronts always went first and the next time was always front pads and rotors and then back brakes. Can you help? Tori Dear Tori: I see a lot of rear brakes that wear out before the fronts on late model vehicles. The rear brake pad and rotors are a lot smaller than the front pads and rotors. The rear brakes work a lot more than they do on older vehicles. This is a normal condition. After the rear brake pad replacement, have the technician bleed the brake system to ensure there is no air in the system.

WITH JUNIOR DAMATO ASK THE AUTO DOCTOR Not Uncommon for Rear Brakes to Wear Out Before the Fronts S upporters of natural gas make a strong case for its use in our cars and trucks, but the reality of burning natural gas as motor vehicle fuel is challenging. Thats because there is a relative shortage of natural gas fueling stations. More importantly, theres a short driving range of most natural gas vehicles. However, at the recent Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany, Volkswagen introduced its new subcompact model, the Up! (well refrain from further use of the exclamation point), as well as six concept versions of the Up. One of those concept cars is the eco Up with a dual-fuel EcoFuel System engine that uses both Compressed Natural Gas and gasoline. The idea behind Volkswagens subcompact is that the car runs on natural gas in regular use, but it also holds a 2.5-gallon reserve tank of gasoline to give owners a cushion of extra driving range. Why consider natural gas rather than gasoline? Because it produces no smog-forming emissions and just a sliver of the carbon dioxide of gasoline. Its also less expensive than gasoline and the U.S. has abundant domestic sources of natural gas. As natural gas advocate T. Boone Pickens said at a rally in Washington last April, We are absolutely crazy if we dont use this fuel. It is cleaner, it is cheaper, it is abundant and it is ours. The ours part was underscored by Oklahoma congressman John Sullivan, who explained, We spend $1.5 to $2 billion dollars a day to send oil to foreign sources. In theory that all sounds well and good unless you cant find the natural gas to fuel your car. Currently, only the Honda Civic Natural Gas is available in the U.S. as a factory-built natural gas model. Volkswagen has not yet announced plans to sell the new Up subcompact in the U.S., but it seems a likely eventuality. While the Civics trunk space is compromised by the additional size of the natural gas tank, leaving it too small for family travel, the Volkswagen Up was designed with the 18-gallon natural gas tank nestled into the floor and the 2.5-gallon gasoline tank in the spare tire well. That means no cargo flexibility is lost in the Up other than the loss of the spare tire. And, the Honda Civic Natural Gas vehicles rear seatback does not fold down for a pass-through to the trunk as the other Civic trims do. Absence of a spare tire in the Up is a reasonable concern, but an increasing number of new cars are coming without spares, and in the case of the Up, the spare has been displaced for good reason. Running on natural gas, the Ups drive range is a shade less than 200 miles, which is about the same as that of the Civic. With its reserve supply of gasoline, the subcompact Up can go another 150 miles before it runs out of fuel, providing ample opportunity to reach a natural gas station or to just top off the gasoline for still more miles before reaching the next natural gas source. The EcoFuel natural gas engine gives us an alternative to expensive hybrid technology in a small car, and it delivers incredibly low fuel consumption and emissions values, remarked Ulrich Hackenberg, Volkswagens board member for technology development. Dan Carney, Motor Matters Volkswagen EcoFuel Engine Runs on Gasoline and Natural Gas Volkswagens concept car the eco Up! is powered by natural gas and extremely clean to drive. Volkswagen also uses a newly developed 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine that has 67 horsepower. 0009VFY
