A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterHERNANDO It has been a rough couple of weeks for the man variously known as Jon Charles Good, Bob Jay Parsons and now Jon Charles Black. Black his birth surname pleaded guilty to the second-degree murder of his longtime girlfriend, Arlene Preg, on Nov. 16 and was sentenced to 25 years, according to Citrus County State Attorney Rich Buxman. Monday, officials in Palm Beach County arrested him to answer charges that he killed another live-in girlfriend in 1979 and fled, presumably ending up in Citrus County. At the time, he went by the alias Jon Charles Good. It is always awesome when you can finally say you solved a cold case that is more than 30 years old, Eric Davis, spokesman for the Palm Beach Sheriffs Office, said Tuesday. I cant go into everything about the case right now, but we feel like we have a good case against him, Davis added.

PAGE A4 TODAY & Thursday morning Citrus intact in proposed Senate map M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterCitrus County would become part of a new congressional district and be united for the first time in 20 years in one state Senate district, according to plans offered this week by a legislative panel. The Senate Reapportionment Committee released proposed congressional and legislative boundaries, which are redrawn every 10 years to reflect census changes in population. Florida picked up two additional congressional seats, from 25 to 27. Citrus is included in the new 26th District, which includes Sumter and parts of Lake and Marion counties, according to the proposed map. That would place Citrus in a congressional district now represented by Cliff Stearns, R-Ocala. Stearns represented Citrus 10 years ago prior to the 2002 redistricting that removed Alachua and Marion counties from the Fifth Congressional District and added Hernando and Pasco counties. The proposed map reduces Senate District 3 from 13 counties to 10, and would place the entirety of Citrus County in one Senate district for the first time in two decades. Sen. Charlie Dean, R-Inverness, is planning a reelection campaign in 2012 Appraiser files for re-electionCitrus County Property Appraiser Geoff Greene filed paperwork Tuesday to seek re-election in 2012 to a second term. Greene defeated incumbent Melanie Hensley in the 2008 Republican primary and then went on to easily win the election. So far, no one else is in the 2012 race. Greenes paperwork with the Supervisor of Elections Office means he can collect and spend money on his campaign. Mo Show wraps up month The end of Movember, a campaign for prostate cancer awareness, will be marked by a special event at a Crystal River pub. County residents have been growing moustaches, called mos, for the campaign. Set from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Dec.1, at Burkes of Ireland, 564 Citrus Ave., the event will feature celebrity bartenders state Rep. Jimmie T. Smith and Citrus County Commissioner Rebecca Rays. All tips will benefit charity. Steve Wright will entertain. Food will be sold by members of the Agricultural Alliance of Citrus County. Family Headquarters Barber Shop will offer hot towel shaves for a donation. At 6:30 p.m., the Mo (Moustache) Show will start, with awards given for the best-looking mo, biggest mo and lamest mo. One hundred men age 50 and older who qualify will receive a coupon for a free prostate screening.

In their search, they have discovered the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park has opened its gates beneath Long River Bridge, which is inside the park across the spring run. Susan Strawbridge, park services specialist, said park staffers are pleased to see about 20 manatees and manatee calves in the spring bowl Tuesday morning before the park opened. When it gets cold, they are drawn to the spring, she said, as she explained the spring water is about 72 to 74 degrees year round. It seems like the mothers and the calves come first. She said the park opened its gates last week when the weather was still warm, anticipating cooler weather. Art Yerian, park manager, said a cold front came in at about 3 p.m. Monday and by late Monday and early Tuesday, the manatees started to enter the spring bowl. There were five or six of them playing and rolling around, he said. Even with the boardwalk construction noise, that didnt bother them one bit. They were having a good time. He said last year was the first year the gate beneath the bridge was opened and about 80 manatees entered the bowl at one time during one of Floridas cold snaps. I think they remembered that they had the access last year, he said. Its really neat when you see that many up here. Edible art gets jiggle-uti MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Bonnie Peterson displays a rose she created in a fruit-flavored gelatin base filled in this glass from her Inverness home. Peterson has established a business called Fruiti-Jiggle-uti. Artist shows a rose by any other name would taste as sweet N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff Writer INVERNESS F ile this under How does she do that? Local artist Bonnie Petersons newest art form, which has quickly become her newest home-based business: the Mexican gelatinas con flores. Peterson calls it Fruiti-Jiggleuti. Its edible art, artistic edible illusions flowers made of flavored, opaque, colored gelatin encapsulated in fruit-flavored, clear gelatin. It looks like roses (or poinsettias or pansies) under glass, almost too pretty to eat. Right now Im doing sunflowers, Peterson said from her home outside of Inverness. Im using a lemon vanilla Im still developing flavors. She saw a version of this food art form online about two years ago and eventually found a Venezuelan woman in Florida who taught her how its done. Next, she spent about six months experimenting. My husband has eaten more gelatin his hair and nails are great! she said. My husband calls me the Mrs. Fields of gelatin. For Peterson, however, its not as much about the food product, Before Bonnie Peterson makes a flower, she likes to paint one. She uses a book filled with pictures of flowers to assist in her work.

C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER A necropsy performed Tuesday on a large manatee found dead Monday near Three Sisters Springs in Crystal River determined the animal died from being hit by a boat. It was found that this manatee had suffered severe trauma to the back of neck, suggesting that this manatee couldnt have lived long after the collision, said Ivan Vicente, visitor services specialist at Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. The manatee, which had been tracked as an adult since 1977 and named Griselda for the U.S. Geological Survey database that recorded her sightings, weighed more than 1,700 pounds, Vicente said. Griselda had water in her lungs, but was not actually waterlogged, he said. The necropsy also revealed Griselda may have been nursing a calf. If there was a calf, Vicente said he hoped it was no longer milk-dependent and old enough to fend for itself. Biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission can determine whether a boat strike paralyzed or killed a manatee, Vicente said. The hematoma on Griseldas spine was very prominent, as I witnessed it myself during the necropsy at St. Petersburg this morning, Vicente said, and they believe that this manatee lost ability to move from the moment she was hit. The manatees size would not allow it to drift unnoticed, Vicente said. She was found on the bottom at the end of Three Sisters Canal and not floating the way drifting dead manatees usually are found, Vicente said. The bottom line is that busy boating during Thanksgiving weekend around Kings Bay very well could have resulted in the loss of this precious female that had reared 12 calves since 1977. It was not the first time a manatee was killed by watercraft collision in Crystal River during a holiday weekend. Another such death happened July 4, 2008, Vicente said. He suggested more law enforcement attention during holidays, especially at times when the manatee population can reach 550 individuals, as has happened during colder months, when manatees cluster for warmth. When the weather is warmer, however, manatees are more widely distributed around Kings Bay, requiring more boater alertness. Vicente also encouraged more self-policing, while acknowledging boaters difficulty in watching out for both boat traffic and manatees. Idle speed sometimes isnt enough to prevent tragedies, Vicente said, especially during highly congested days. Vicente recommended all people using Kings Bay to display the Please Slow, Manatees Below flags. Boat rental companies should advise customers about how the manatees would be distributed on particular days and kayak renters could spot manatees to alert boaters of their presence. The sanctuaries function as manatee bedrooms, but the rest of Kings Bay is their dining and living room, Vicente said. Every visitor to Kings Bay should be made aware of that. and happy to see proposed districts geographical bound aries kept Citrus intact. Im very excited weve got a solid district, Dean said. It never made a hill of beans to me where the line is divided. I live in Citrus County and represent Citrus County. Citrus is currently divided in two Senate districts. Dean represents the lions share, and Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey, represents the county west of U.S. 19. Fasano was appointed to the Senate Reapportionment Committee but withdrew because he may be considering a run next year for Congress. I didnt want to show any conflicts, or allow any perception of any conflicts to either help me or hurt someone else, he said. Ive paid very little attention to the reapportionment process. The proposed new Fifth Congressional District covers just Hernando and Pasco counties. Freshman Rep. Rich Nugent, RBrooksville, now represents the district. Both proposed Senate and U.S. House maps show Citrus with a portion of Marion counties but not the same portion. The Senate District 3 includes Marion west of I75 and the U.S. House map includes Marion east of I-75, including Ocala. Fasano noted the reapportionment process doesnt end with one map. The state House of Representatives must still provide its proposed congressional and state House districts, and the final map requires House and Senate approval. The Florida Supreme Court also reviews and approves state House and Senate maps. Congressional maps are approved by a federal court or the U.S. Department of Justice.

Tampa airport a favoriteTAMPA A travel website has named the Tampa International Airport among the worlds most loved airports. CNNgo.com, a website covering international travel and tourism, ranked the Tampa airport No. 6 in that category this month. It was the only airport in the U.S. to make the list. Distraction causes crash KISSIMMEE The Florida Highway Patrol said a woman who was changing a CD caused a fatal wreck on Floridas Turnpike. Trooper say 63-year-old Ida Henderson was traveling south Monday afternoon when a vehicle driven by 55-year-old Karen LeForge of West Palm Beach drifted into the right lane and struck her SUV. LeForge told troopers she was changing a disc in the CD player. The SUV overturned and Henderson died at the scene. Henderson lived in Riviera Beach. The crash happened just south of Kissimmee. The two passengers in Hendersons SUV received minor injuries. From staff and wire reports From wire reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Port Citrus aligns with Ocala project C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterMarion Countys plan for an inland port would work well with Citrus Countys project for Port Citrus, the Citrus County Port Authority Board heard Tuesday. Yesterday, Nov. 28, we went to Wildwood with Commissioner (Rebecca) Bays, and we spoke to the Ocala 489 Inland Port Project, said Port Director Brad Thorpe, county administrator. Thorpe said Stonecrest Management was the developer of the inland port, and its president, Hall Robertson, was present. Thorpe presented an aerial map of the proposed inland port, which is comprised of 489 acres of land near Ocala north of U.S. 27 and east of I-75. The inland port is almost to the phase of construction, Thorpe said. Marion County and the city of Ocala are infusing about $25 million in roads and infrastructure into this port. Stella Heath, manager of business development for Florida Central Railroad, also was present to explain how the Florida Central Railroads parent company, the Pinsly Railroad, could service the inland port. Theyre putting a rail spur into this inland port that will connect to the Pinsly Line, which eventually connects to CSX Railroad that goes up to Jacksonville and eventually to Waycross, Georgia, Thorpe said. Within the Pinsly Railroad, the Florida Central Railroad operates 68 miles of track, the Florida Midland Railroad operates 28 miles of track and the Florida Northern Railroad operates 104 miles of track. We found out from Pinsly Line, one railroad car equals four semi trucks, Thorpe said. So you can see why railroad for long haul is very important to the economy. Pinsly operates within Citrus County. The Pinsly Railroad line is the current short line that runs into the Progress Energy plant right now, Thorpe said. They have a long-term lease with CSX Railroad. They are interconnected to the CSX system throughout the state of Florida. Thats why that is such a vital component of the viability of this port. Companies that used Ocalas inland port for transportation also would want the option of transporting products by water, which would take business to Port Citrus. This is a way for them to get water access for this inland port, Thorpe said. This is a huge project. They will work with us to help us develop our port. Thorpe reported the presentations he and port authority members have given in surrounding counties. On Oct. 11, Thorpe and Port Authority Chairman Dennis Damato gave a presentation to Yankeetown and Inglis, the towns north of Crystal River that are in Levy County. They were excited about the possibility of what the port could do to that community as far as infrastructure is concerned and job creation, Thorpe said. On Oct. 18, Damato and Thorpe went before the Levy County Board of County Commissioners. They as a group said they would help in any way they could, Thorpe said. On Oct. 29, Port Authority Board Member Joe Meek, Port Attorney Richard Wesch and Thorpe made a presentation to the Marion County Manufacturers Association. As manufacturers, they are always interested in transportation modes, Thorpe said. On Nov. 22, Thorpe and Meek did a presentation before the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce Crystal River Area Council. This was in response to getting the word out in a better way, Thorpe said. Upcoming presentations will be given to Marion County Board of County Commissioners and the City of Ocala on Dec. 9, to the Citrus, Marion and Levy Workforce Connection on Jan. 3, and to the Marion County Economic Development Council on Jan. 18. Cathy Taylor, management and budget director for the county, presented a budget for Port Citrus. The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) would transfer $28,510 from contingency funds to the Port Citrus account. Including all contributions to fund the feasibility study, the total budget would be $120,510. Thorpe presented board members the request for qualifications (RFQ) form to send out to consultant firms who would want to conduct the Port Citrus feasibility study. Thorpe said more than 10 interested firms already have contacted him. The board accepted the RFQ. The submittal deadline is Jan. 20. Chris Lloyd, a Lecanto resident representing the Citrus County Council, a consortium of homeowner associations, civic clubs, environmental groups and interested citizens, asked about the use of the BOCCs general fund for advancing the Port Citrus project, which would be developed on private property. Thorpe said the port authority has no public property on the site around the barge canal, but would lease it from private ownership to make it public as all Florida ports must be in public ownership. The feasibility study would determine which property the port authority should lease. The port authority would then lease the property to commercial interests.

Traffic headache S ANDRA F REDERICK Staff WriterAs part of a major traffic pattern shift to the new roadway on County Road 486 and County Road 491, cars backed up Tuesday afternoon, causing a commuter headache. Part of the switch was to modify striping at each end of the new roadway and switch all traffic heads and video detection equipment used to direct traffic patterns, said Walt Eastmond, engineering transportation project manager for Citrus County. In order to do the work, we had to shut the equipment down and manually direct traffic through the intersection, Eastmond said. A Citrus County Sheriffs deputy was on site to keep the traffic pattern flowing safely as county workers made the switch. The project started after the morning rush hour at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday and was completed around 5 p.m., which was during the peak afternoon traffic, he said. Eastmond said the other part of the project was to tweak the traffic lights. He said the new system uses motion sensors, which trigger computers to start the traffic light pattern when a car approaches, unlike the outdated system of loop wires in the roadway. The next step in the construction plans are to grind up the old roadway. The contractor (D.A.B. Constructors) is milling asphalt from the old roadway from the south end of C.R. 491 and mill north to the intersection and at the same time, the far east end and back to the intersection, Eastmond said. The work should not interfere with traffic on the newer section of the road. The project is slated to be completed in June 2012. Traffic is backed up at the intersection of County Road 486 and County Road 491 as workers make adjustments to the traffic lights, causing a bottleneck. The lights clicked on at around 5 p.m. CATHY KAPULKA / Chronicle S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterThe U.S. Postal Service is holding a public meeting Thursday in Gainesville to discuss moving mail processing operations from Gainesville to Jacksonville or Tampa a move American Postal Workers Union (APWU) locals believe will affect mail service standards in a negative way. The meeting will be at 7 p.m. at Santa Fe College, 3000 N.W. 83rd St., Building WA, Room 104. According to the Postal Service, it has experienced a significant reduction in how much single-piece first-class mail enters its system. In fact, from fiscal year 2001 through the end of fiscal year 2010, mail volume for this category has declined by almost 23 billion pieces, approximately 42 percent, according to the Postal Services website. Therefore, the Postal Service stated it is looking into increasing efficiency by consolidating mail processing operations, including shutting down operations in Gainesville. However, APWU locals maintain making such a change will severely disrupt mail service standards in the seven-county area Gainesville serves, which includes Citrus County. It will slow service, said Brian ONeill, president of the North Central Florida Area Local American Postal Workers Union. Currently, 98 percent of first-class mail is delivered overnight in the sevencounty area, thanks to Gainesvilles central location. With operations moving to Jacksonville or Tampa, ONeill said firstclass mail would be delayed, meaning it could take up to two to three days for firstclass mail to be delivered. For seniors who get their medications through the mail or business owners who pay bills regularly, ONeill said it could cause a problem, and he feels residents should be informed of the changes in their service standards. For those unable to attend the meeting, written comments can be sent to: Consumer & Industry Contact Manager, North Florida District, P .O. Box 40005, Jacksonville, FL 32203-0005. Comments will be accepted through Dec. 16. Chronicle reporter Shemir Wiles can be reached at (352) 564-2924 or swiles@chronicleonline. Weigh in on mail changes at meeting Lords and Dukes part of Light Shine series N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterLECANTO Franz Joseph Haydn and Duke Ellington: What could these two seemingly incongruous composers have in common? The works both men considered to be their most important, Haydns Lord Nelson Mass and Ellingtons Songs from the Sacred Concerts, will be presented by the Marion Civic Chorale at 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 4, at Shepherd of the Hills Episcopal Church in Lecanto. The free concert is part of the Light Shine humanities program, sponsored by Shepherd of the Hills Episcopal Church in Lecanto, the Florida Humanities Council and the Citrus CountyChronicle. Haydn, the 18th-century Austrian composer known as the Father of the Symphony, wrote this featured piece of music in 1798 and called it Mass for Troubled Times. Around the time of its inaugural performance, Napoleon was defeated in the Battle of the Nile by British forces led by Admiral Horatio Nelson and people started referring to it as Lord Nelson Mass, a Mass being a form of sacred musical compositions. Ellington, one of Americas most influential composers of the 20th century, was predominantly known for his jazz compositions. His Sacred Concerts, done in three separate suites, were written in 1974 near the end of his life. We had the Marion Civic Chorale here before when they performed the Holocaust Cantata it was great! said George Krueger, member of the Light Shine committee. Theyre made up of some 50 singers (who) are truly professional. Concert selections include Kyrie, Gloria and Agnus Dei (Haydn) and Every Man Prays/Our Father, Come Sunday and Praise God and Dance (Ellington). A word of caution we can only seat 200 people, Krueger said. Also, because County Road 486 is under construction and new passageways are being opened up, we will have balloons by the entrances to make it easy for people to find the right driveway. The church is at 2540 W. Norvell Bryant Highway, Lecanto. Admission is free; donations gratefully accepted. Additional performances in nearby Marion County include: 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10, at St. George Anglican Cathedral, 5646 SE 28th St., Ocala; and 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11, at Zion United Methodist Church, 510 NW Martin Luther King Jr. Ave., Ocala.

ChronicleCitrus County deputies arrested a Lecanto man after he reportedly lead authorities on a high-speed chase Tuesday afternoon through a residential area in Inverness. According to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, a deputy attempted to stop a small blue vehicle driven by 26-year-old Steven Daniel Bradley, of 6420 S. Coronado Trail, after he clocked the car traveling 70 mph in a 45 mph zone on County Road 486. However, Bradley fled from authorities, taking the chase through several residential streets near North Croft Avenue at speeds of up to 60 mph. Bradley eventually stopped the car on North Fitzpatrick Avenue where deputies ordered him out of the car at gunpoint and took him into custody. According to Bradleys arrest report, he said he fled because he was unable to afford the traffic ticket for the original violation of speed. He was charged with one count of fleeing/eluding a law enforcement officer. His bond was set at $5,000.

SIDIBE Staff WriterHOMOSASSA A Homosassa woman is facing a battery charge for allegedly entering a neighbors house and hitting him on the shoulder. According to a Citrus County Sheriffs Office report, Patricia Ann Gray, 68, was upset that her neighbors dog was allowed to run loose. On Nov. 22, Gray reportedly walked over to neighbors house and knocked on the door, but before he could answer the door, Gray had already opened the door and was inside the house. According to the report, Gray allegedly struck the man on the shoulder and then walked out. The report also said he told investigators he later discovered his aluminum screen door in his screened in porch area was bent. He told investigators the dog was loose, but thought Gray handled things inappropriately. Gray reportedly told investigators she lost her temper and struck the man because of his indifference to her complaints about the dog. Gray told deputies the dog is always loose and chasing her dog, which has an underground electric fence, causing it to panic because it cant leave the yard. She denied barging into the neighbors home or damaging the screen door. Bond was $500. Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at (352) 564-2925 or at asidibe @chronicleonline.com.

He said it was nice to see the mother manatees bringing their calves into the spring bowl and nursing them. And this morning it was really cool, when you see the babies playing, he said. This year he is hoping for more manatees to seek refuge in the park, as another gate has been added giving them more access. He said the Save the Manatee Club paid for the gate, which would make it easier if an injured manatee enters the park. We can close that gate and do a rescue here, he said. Instead of chasing them down the river. Yerian said he expects more manatees to enter the park today with temperatures expected to drop. The Fishbowl Underwater Observatory in the park is located just above he main spring, the headwaters of the Homosassa River. This is one of the only places you can see the manatees close up and personal without getting wet, he added. He said manatee season runs between Nov. 15 and March 30.

Before I make a flower, just like before I paint a rose, I study it, learn how its formed, she said. You have to know what their leaves look like, what their colors are. And just like in nature, each one is different. Peterson began her art training in New York at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan with visions of being a successful artist in New York. Then life happened and I was a starving artist in New York, she said. The school had taught her all about technique and even art history, but didnt have any classes on marketing, which she has since discovered is key to any successful business. When I got out of art school in I had a great artistic background and talent, but when I went out into the world I flopped and I wasnt about to go back home and live, she said. After a stint in the Army where she learned electronics repair and a career with a telephone company and Lucent Technology where she learned about marketing, she retired and moved to Citrus County in 2000 and resumed her passion for art, opening a home-based mural business. She and her husband, Norm, also volunteer with Habitat for Humanity where Norm serves on the board of directors. The good thing about this I talked to people at craft fairs who were doing things like chocolates at home and found that there was a law passed in Florida in 2011 for food-based cottage businesses, so now you can make products at home, she said. She said even though shes licensed as a home-based business, shes currently negotiating with local restaurants to use their commercial kitchens. If I want to cater (the products) or sell to a restaurant, I cant make them at home, she said, adding that shes already generating interest for large orders. As for how she makes her encapsulated flower edible art creations, Peterson wants to keep the process a secret. She did divulge, however, that she uses medical surgical tools to insert the colored gelatin into the clear gelatin to form the flower, petal by petal. Because Ive painted flowers and Ive been around art so long and in so many different mediums it doesnt come naturally, she said, but it comes with practice. Beginning in January, Peterson will have a Fruiti-Jiggle-uti booth at the Inverness Farmers Market with samples to taste. Look for her in a fun apron and a fruity Carmen Miranda-style headpiece. Currently, Peterson doesnt have a Website because she hasnt figured out how to ship her creations. They keep well in the refrigerator and dont melt if left out, but thats as far as shes gotten, she said. For more information, call Bonnie Peterson at (352) 228-1807.

On July 23, 1979, when Nelson failed to pick up her child at the babysitter, her employer was contacted and later contacted police. When investigators got to the home, they reportedly found her dead body, and it appeared to have been stabbed. According to the affidavit, the house seemed like a scene of a violent struggle and the only possible weapon missing was a pair of barber shears a friend of Black claimed to have given him two weeks earlier and personally saw in the house a week before Nelsons death. Investigators also found that all male clothing and toiletries in the house were missing. Nelsons car, a 1975 Ford Granada, was also missing. Police later found the car abandoned in Orlando and bartenders in the area reported seeing Black in the area after Nelsons death. The trail grew cold soon after, until April 2011 when Black popped back up on police radar screens and was arrested and charged in the murder of his girlfriend Preg in Citrus County. Black, 70, or as he became known here, Bob Jay Parsons, bludgeoned 57-yearold Preg to death in her backyard in Hernando. Black disappeared, but was later found by a patrol deputy as he drove around in his white Chevy truck in a desolate area of Independence Highway in Inverness. Citrus County officials were able to establish Blacks real identity through fingerprint records dating back to the 1960s and early s. Palm Beach officials soon put in dibs on him too and looked for his links to Nelsons murder. On Monday, officials said they got their man. Sometimes it takes time, but like you see on television with the cold cases, it just takes a little break and you can connect things and make an arrest, Palm Beach spokesman Davis said.

Associated PressMADISON, Wis. Soviet dictator Josef Stalins daughter, whose defection to the West during the Cold War embarrassed the ruling communists and made her a best-selling author, has died. She was 85. Lana Peters who was known internationally by her previous name, Svetlana Alliluyeva died of colon cancer Nov. 22 in Wisconsin, where she lived off and on after becoming a U.S. citizen, Richland County Coroner Mary Turner said Monday. Her defection in 1967 which she said was partly motivated by the poor treatment of her late husband, Brijesh Singh, by Soviet authorities caused an international furor and was a public relations coup for the U.S. But Peters, who left behind two children, said her identity involved more than just switching from one side to the other in the Cold War. She even moved back to the Soviet Union in the 1980s, only to return to the U.S. more than a year later. When she left the Soviet Union in 1966 for India, she planned to leave the ashes of her late third husband, an Indian citizen, and return. Instead, she walked unannounced into the U.S. embassy in New Delhi and asked for political asylum. After a brief stay in Switzerland, she flew to the U.S. Peters carried with her a memoir she had written in 1963 about her life in Russia. Twenty Letters to a Friend was published within months of her arrival in the U.S. and became a best-seller. Upon her arrival in New York City in 1967, the 41year-old said: I have come here to seek the self-expression that has been denied me for so long in Russia. She said she had come to doubt the communism she was taught growing up and believed there werent capitalists or communists, just good and bad human beings. She had also found religion and believed it was impossible to exist without God in ones heart. In the book, she recalled her father, who died in 1953 after ruling the nation for 29 years, as a distant and paranoid man. He was a very simple man. Very rude. Very cruel, Peters told the Wisconsin State Journal in a rare interview in 2010. There was nothing in him that was complicated. He was very simple with us. He loved me and he wanted me to be with him and become an educated Marxist. Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin denounced Peters as a morally unstable and sick person. I switched camps from the Marxists to the capitalists, she recalled in a 2007 interview for the documentary Svetlana About Svetlana. But she said her identity was far more complex than that and never completely understood.

S UE M ANNING Associated PressLOS ANGELES Vet visits cost pet owners an average of $505 dollars last year, according to a new APPetside.com poll, with those whose pets faced serious illness spending more than $1,000 on average. Eight in 10 pet owners took their animal companion to a veterinarian in the past 12 months. And cost was an obstacle for a third of those who did not visit the vet. But most pet owners trust that vets are not suggesting unnecessary treatments, and the bulk of pet owners faced costs below the average. Sixty percent of those who did take a pet to the vet spent $300 or less on their animals care, the average expenditure was boosted higher by the one in eight (13 percent) who spent $1,000 or more. About one in six pet owners say their pet faced a serious illness during the year, and those pet owners spent an average of $1,092 on vet care. One percent say they took their pets to the vet and spent no money. Thomas Klamm, 76, of Boone, Iowa, said he and his wife Beverly spent $3,000 on their two Chihuahuas, sisters Kati and Keli, and he would have spent more if necessary, even though his annual income is under $50,000. The biggest bills resulted from a spinal condition Kati had, but Klamm said he has a lot of confidence in the vets and senior students at Iowa State Universitys Veterinary Teaching Hospital in nearby Ames, where the little dogs have been going since they were pups. According to the poll, most pet owners have faith in the treatment vets recommend. Overall, 52 percent say vets do not often recommend excessive treatment, 26 percent say that happens moderately often, and 17 percent say it happens extremely or very often. Those whose pets had been seriously ill in the past year were no more likely than others to say that vets suggest treatments that go beyond what is reasonable and necessary. Among those who did not take their pets to the vet last year, 52 percent say they only take their pets to the vet when theyre really sick and a third say they cant afford it at all. Luis Calderon, 56, of El Monte, Calif., couldnt afford to take Buddy, his 3-year-old German shepherd, to the vet last year. Buddy was given to Calderon when the dog was 6 months old. We have become best friends, he said. Calderon, a self-employed handyman, has a wife and two kids and said work is scarce. If Buddy needed a vet, Calderon said he would have to go through public services or use credit. We would have to get him help. How much would be too much? It would depend on what was wrong and what the vet said, Calderon said. At that point I would have to consider whether to keep him or let him go, put him to sleep, he said. He hates the idea of putting limits on Buddys health. But we have to survive. At this point, my mortgage is No. 1. This month is really close to the edge, Calderon added. Fifty-eight percent of those who did not take their pets to a vet in the past year said they have a type of pet that doesnt need much veterinary care. Among them, 52 percent have dogs, 52 percent cats, 10 percent fish, and 5 percent birds. Not surprisingly, higherincome pet owners (household incomes more than $50,000) were more apt to take their pets to the vet than those with incomes below $50,000 90 percent versus 74 percent. Forty percent of those with household incomes below $50,000 who didnt take their pets to the vet say they cant really afford to do so. Art Jones, 62, of Alameda, Calif., said two of his familys cats died in the last year. He estimates he spent $600 on vet bills half of that to euthanize one of the cats. The other cat died at home. But we are not so wealthy we can spend thousands on a house pet. Thats unfortunate, but thats the truth, Jones said. He said he has family friends whose dog is getting cancer treatment and the cost is nearing $10,000. To me, thats insane, Jones said. During the past few years, Jim Salsman, 51, of Las Vegas, paid for several $500 trips to the vet for his neighbors cat, Mau, after the declawed feline got in fights with other animals. Last year, the neighbors left and gave the cat to Salsman. He ended up paying another $400 in vet bills, but said he didnt mind because his neighbors were in foreclosure and struggling, and the cat became an important member of the family. He means everything to us, Salsman said. According to the poll, dog owners were a bit more likely to take their pets to the vet than cat owners 85 percent of dog owners compared with 79 percent of cat owners. But dog owners spent a bit less an average of $537 than cat owners, who spent an average of $558. The AP-Petside.com Poll was conducted Oct. 13 to 17, 2011, by GfK Roper Public Affairs and Corporate Communications. It involved landline and cellphone interviews with 1,118 pet owners. Results among pet owners have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Military travelers on official duty would get a special preference to move through airport security checks faster under a bill before the House. Lawmakers plan to vote Tuesday on the bill, which would give the Homeland Security Department six months to devise a new system. Passage would send the bill to the Senate. If the legislation becomes law, the earliest beneficiaries would likely be troops returning from Afghanistan next year and their family members who also would receive preferential treatment. The government already has initiated, and is expanding, a more intelligence-driven trusted traveler program for civilians. Participants include travelers in American and Delta airlines frequent flier programs as well as people who are part of three other programs. These people volunteer more information about themselves so that the government can vet them before they arrive at airport security checkpoints. Rep. Chip Cravaack, RMinn., chief sponsor of the bill, said it takes longer for men and women in uniform to pass through security because of their gear. Allowing them through security more quickly would speed up the waiting time for those not part of a preference program, he said. While Homeland Security would establish the new preferential system, Cravaack envisions troops not having to remove boots, belt buckles, bulky military jacks and uniform medals. Troops could go to the front of the line, or a separate line could be created. This falls in line with the pilot program now under way, Cravaack said. I was an airline pilot for 17 years. We would go to the head of the line. I saw people who were not exactly happy with that. But the main emphasis is expediting troops going through a security process that wasnt made for them. The Transportation Security Administration is currently testing a trusted traveler program at airports in Atlanta, Dallas, Detroit and Miami. The program will expand to Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Minneapolis-St. Paul over the next few months. The civilian program allows participants to go to a dedicated lane. The traveler will provide the TSA officer with a boarding pass that has information about his or her status embedded in the barcode. A machine will read the barcode, and if the traveler is deemed part of a lowrisk category, he or she will likely be able to keep on belts, shoes and jackets and leave laptops and liquids in bags when going through the screening process. Associated PressBEIJING The world should get ready for a new Made in China product vaccines. Chinas vaccine makers are gearing up over the next few years to push exports in a move that should lower costs of lifesaving immunizations for the worlds poor and provide major new competition for the big Western pharmaceutical companies. However, it may take some time before some parts of the world are ready to embrace Chinese products when safety is as sensitive an issue as it is with vaccines especially given the food, drug and other scandals the country has seen. Still, Chinas entry into this market will be a game changer, said Nina Schwalbe, head of policy at the GAVI Alliance, which buys vaccines for 50 million children a year worldwide. We are really enthusiastic about the potential entry of Chinese vaccine manufacturers, she said. Chinas vaccine-making prowess captured world attention in 2009 when one of its companies developed the first effective vaccine against swine flu in just 87 days as the new virus swept the globe.

Lipitor is so valuable that Pfizer is practically paying people to keep taking its blockbuster cholesterol medicine after generic competition hits the U.S. market this week. Pfizer has devised discounts and incentives for patients, insurers and companies that process prescriptions that will, at least for the next six months, make the brand name drug about as cheap as or cheaper than the generics. Pfizer also has spent tens of millions of dollars this year on marketing to keep patients on Lipitor, which loses patent protection Wednesday. Normally when a drugs patent ends, generic rivals grab nearly all its market share in a year or less, and the original maker quietly shifts focus to its newer products. Pfizer Inc., the worlds biggest drugmaker, is not giving up that easy on the best-selling drug in history. Lipitor had peak sales of about $13 billion and still brings in nearly $11 billion a year, about a sixth of Pfizers revenue. With no new blockbusters to fill that hole, the company is making an unprecedented push to hang onto Lipitor revenue as long as possible. Patients seem to buy into the logic. If I can get the name brand at the same price or for pennies more than the generic, I have no motivation to switch, said Richard Shiekman, 59, who has been taking Lipitor for six years and credits the drug with sharply cutting his bad cholesterol. Shiekman, a wine and spirits importer from Redding, Conn., got a $4 copay card two weeks ago after his pharmacy sent an offer guaranteeing that price through December 2012. Pfizers strategy is cunning and could become the new norm, as most other drugmakers also face generic competition to topselling medicines and havent been coming up with replacements. People getting a month of lifesaving medicine for the price of a cup of Starbucks is ... pretty impressive, said Michael Kleinrock, a research director at data firm IMS Health. Pfizers effort includes: Offering insured patients a discount card to get Lipitor for $4 a month, far below the $25 average copayment for a preferred brand-name drug and below the $10 average copay for a generic drug. Pfizer is promoting this heavily through ads, information distributed at doctors offices and its www.LipitorForYou.com site. Pfizer, based in New York, said Tuesday that signups have exceeded its goals. Paying pharmacies to mail Lipitor patients offers for the $4 copay card and to counsel patients that Lipitor lowers bad cholesterol more than rival drugs and helps prevent heart attacks and strokes. Keeping U.S. marketing spending nearly level until the last minute, versus the typical two-thirds drop in a drugs final year under patent. From July through September, Pfizer spent almost $90 million on doctor sales calls and free samples, about the same as a year earlier, according to Cegedim Strategic Data. Ads targeting patients fell about 60 percent to $19 million. All that will soon taper off. Negotiating unusual deals with some insurance plans and prescription benefit managers, the companies that process prescription claims for insurers or employers, to block pharmacists from dispensing generic Lipitor. Pfizer is giving them rebates that bring their cost for Lipitor down to the price of a generic or slightly less if they agree to dispense only Lipitor for the six months before additional generic competition slashes prices. The move has generated some controversy and means many of the 3 million Americans taking Lipitor wont be able switch to the generic. Under those contracts, patients will pay either their plans standard generic copayment or just $4 the lowest copayment pharmacies at supermarkets and discounters such as Walmart offer for the most widely used generic drugs. While generic medicines work the same as brand drugs for nearly everyone, some patients prefer the brand. We want to make sure that patients who are currently taking Lipitor and want to continue ... have the opportunity to do so, said David Simmons, who heads Pfizers Established Products business. He said research shows more than a third of patients want to stay on Lipitor. Pfizer also is continuing assistance programs that subsidize uninsured patients wanting Lipitor, which costs about $115 to $160 a month, depending on dosage. Generic Lipitor, called atorvastatin, should cost 30 percent to 50 percent less. People without insurance also can order the generic, with a prescription, through websites such as Health Warehouse.com. Patients could save even more by taking other generic drugs in the same class that have been on sale for several years: pravastatin (Pravachol) and simvastatin (Zocor). But theyre not as potent as Lipitor, the key reason its sales have held up. Typically, brand-name drugs get one or two generic competitors initially, priced about 25 percent lower. Six months later, other generic companies are allowed to jump in and the price drops up to 80 percent. About 90 percent of the branded drugs sales ultimately vanish, as insured patients seeking a lower copayment switch over and most pharmacies automatically substitute a generic for a brand name.

Investors were also encouraged by new efforts from European leaders to find more aggressive cures for the regions debt crisis. The Dow Jones industrial average ended with a gain of 32 points, following a 291point surge Monday. Retail stocks were among the biggest gainers. Home Depot Inc. rose 5.3 percent. Best Buy Co. rose 5.1 percent. Retailers had record sales over the Thanksgiving weekend. Stocks started higher and gained momentum after 10 a.m., when the Conference Board, a private research group, reported that its Consumer Confidence Index jumped in November to its highest level since July. That news and the surge in holiday shopping reassured investors that the U.S. economy might be sputtering back to life, said Quincy Krosby, market strategist for Prudential Financial. For the market, the fact that Americans are spending is a positive force, said Krosby. European finance ministers gathered Tuesday to hash out the latest ideas for squelching the crisis. At their regular monthly meeting, the ministers also released the latest installment of emergency loans for Greece. Europes proposals for wriggling out of a potential financial catastrophe have become more radical as borrowing costs for the regions large economies, including Spain and Italy, spike. President Barack Obama said in a meeting with top EU officials Monday that if Europe failed to solve its crisis, the U.S. economy would suffer. Acting with new urgency, Europes finance ministers were considering wideranging plans for protecting its shared currency, the euro, from collapsing. Many of those ideas would have been off-limits until recently, including having countries cede some control over their finances to a central European authority. In the latest sign of trouble, Italy was forced to pay a high interest rate on an auction of three-year debt Tuesday. The 7.89 percent rate was nearly three percentage points higher than last month, an enormous increase. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 33.62 points, or 0.3 percent, to close at 11,555.63 Tuesday. The Dow jumped 291 the day before on expectations that European leaders were moving more aggressively to prevent the regions debt crisis from causing a catastrophic breakup of their currency union. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 2.64, or 0.2 percent, to 1,195.19. Technology stocks were weak. Corning Inc., which makes glass for flat-screen TVs, slumped 10.8 percent, the most in the S&P 500, after saying a major South Korean customer would no longer do business with it. The Nasdaq composite, which consists mostly of technology stocks, fell 11.83, or 0.5 percent, to 2,515.51. Netflix lost 3.4 percent after Standard & Poors lowered its rating on the companys debt, saying it expected losses. Bank stocks lagged the market after the latest jump in Italys borrowing costs. Morgan Stanley fell 3.6 percent; Bank of America 3.2 percent. Banks are especially sensitive to Europes financial problems because they hold billions in European debt. They could suffer huge losses in the event of a financial panic in Europe and a freeze-up in global lending markets. AMR Corp. plunged 84 percent after the parent company of American Airlines said it would file for Chapter 11 because it could no longer shoulder rising fuel costs and its heavy debt load.

O PINION Page A12 WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2011 Useful idiots It is so easy to manipulate some people. The phrase useful idiots sums it up very nicely. We have these useful idiots with us in every generation, in our generation the brain manipulation started decades ago. Our educated class is a class brainwashed, and propagandized by liberal professors who hijacked our educational system decades ago. All that money for phony education. I want a refund of my tax dollars. It cannot happen here. It already is happening. We are this close to subjugation. Open your eyes, look around you, OWS (Occupy Wall Street). Recently, I attended an event where I was searched every day, my belongings. The catch words are Safety, and Security. That is just how easy it is. The searchers, fellow citizens, did their searching with relish. As do community patrols who are concerned with our safety, and security. A few days ago, I was issued an edict to keep my garage door closed at all times. It is supposed to be my garage door. Dont I have the right to decide if it is open or closed, for my convenience? Something so mundane is the bailiwick of citizen spies? We are told when, and how to use everything. Recycle, do not buy, buy only what you are told, you use too much to heat, drive to much, 2 minute showers, etc. Is that Freedom? We must cut back, while millions are allowed to rush over our borders at will. These people are taking my water, and everything else I use. I am forced to share resources with them, like it or not. Logic should tell us something, but try to tell that to a liberal useful idiot. They want to hear none of this. Useful idiots are so devoid of common sense, and logic, and information. May I humbly suggest useful idiots read The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom, see how bad things can get. If these useful idiots are prepared to experience this: Be my guest, but do not expect me to share the experience. I choose to decline. D.I. Larson Ocala Medias allegiancesI wonder daily as I see more and more the disaster this administration is to this country. I also wonder when the mainstream media will start being truthful and factual in reporting the things that are really going on with this president and the cabinet and others in his administration. The folks know and are being educated, albeit slowly, from other sources. It seems a shame that we have to go to media overseas to find things out about the machinations of this regime, and I make no apologies in calling it that. Ive seen others call it worse things. Theyre seeing things we arent. Is it any wonder we dont see these things? Makes you wonder the intentions and allegiances the media has in our country, and for our country. They dont look good from here. William H Kurz Hernando I s there any more dangerous position in politics than being the surging front-runner in the Republican presidential race? Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry and Herman Cain have all been in that seat, and all have fallen out. Now, its Newt Gingrichs turn, and the former House speaker, for all his new popularity, is in an extremely perilous place. Heres the problem. There are new reports coming out every day about Gingrichs efforts on behalf of Freddie Mac, the prescription drug entitlement and other biggovernment initiatives. Gingrich denies that any of it involved lobbying, but the news will likely not sit well with limited-government conservatives. At least for now, though, its not clear what the ultimate effect will be because it takes time for stories to sink in with the voters who will decide Gingrichs future. I dont think people have drawn a solid conclusion on those yet, says prominent Iowa social conservative Bob Vander Plaats, president of the Family Leader organization, which held a much-watched presidential forum on Saturday. Its a little bit new. News may travel at the speed of Twitter among political insiders, but it moves much more slowly among voters who have other things to do with their lives. Add the conservative mistrust of much of the media, and you have a process in which allegations, once made, take a long time to be vetted and pass from voter to voter. A lot of people will skip over a headline and think thats just another sensational story, says Iowa Rep. Steve King, an influential figure in caucus politicking. Instead, when there are stories about Gingrich lobbying, for example, voters will talk to their friends, and their friends to their other friends, and so forth. Word of mouth will become more effective in the next few weeks, says King. So recent revelations that in 2003 Gingrich privately urged lawmakers to vote for the prescription drug entitlement at a time he was being paid by pharmaceutical companies havent yet made much of a mark. Its not clear whether they will or not. The striking thing about Gingrich and the new revelations is that social conservatives have been hard at work dealing with the old stories about his character, mainly the fact that he has been married three times. On that score, Gingrich appears to be making real progress; a focus group conducted after the Family Leader forum found Gingrich had done particularly well among social conservative women. Supporting Gingrich would be new territory for social conservative groups that have never endorsed a thrice-married candidate. But those groups are now wrestling with doing just that. We believe in one man-one woman marriage and lifetime commitments, says Vander Plaats. But we also remind people that the centerpiece of our faith is this thing called forgiveness and grace. ... If we believe that a person is repentant, if we believe that person is sincere, and if we believe a person is maturing in their faith, then we should forgive. Social conservatives who are inclined to support Gingrich point out that he has presented himself as a more mature, more faithful man for several years now so the new Gingrich is not part of what is known in Iowa politics as a road to Des Moines conversion. But theres no doubt that some social conservatives will never get past Gingrichs rocky personal life; how many are among that number is still an open question. So despite all the progress he has made hes now leading in the RealClearPolitics average of Iowa polls as well as national surveys Gingrich faces a tricky next few weeks. He not only hasnt fully convinced muchneeded potential supporters of his new faithfulness, he also has yet to feel the full effects of new revelations about his activities as a Washington insider. On the other hand, Gingrich remains the most formidable presence in Republican debates and, given the falls of Bachmann, Perry and Cain, and longshot nature of Rick Santorum and Ron Paul, there might be no one left to supplant him in the role of main challenger to Mitt Romney. Either Santorum or Paul will have a boomlet, or one of the fallen will have to come back for another shot. Or the race will come down to Gingrich vs. Romney if Gingrich can avoid a fall of his own.

Then Citrus Countys Citizens Academy is for you. A new 11-week class is starting in March, and its free. The citizens academy concept is familiar: organizations offer programs that provide a close-up view of operations from the inside. Typically, participants emerge with a new appreciation of the organization and its accomplishments, as well as a willingness to share their information with others. Its been done here by the school system, the sheriffs office, Nature Coast EMS, Citrus Memorial Health System, and now the Board of County Commissioners. The third BOCC Citizens Academy class is being graduated this week. Talk to any citizens academy grad, and youll hear statements like this: I had no idea they did all those things. I didnt understand how complex these issues are or the work that goes into addressing them. Theres so much involved. I cant believe everything they do, and how good they are at it. Im really impressed. The county governments citizens academy program is an effective tool in fighting civic ignorance. Its critical that citizens understand how government operates; with education comes understanding, and with understanding comes a rational, workable approach to community issues. Any interested citizen is invited to and anyone who considers running for elected office definitely should participate in a citizens academy class. Learn from the people who do it whats involved in keeping roads, bridges and signage up to snuff, in guiding development and land use decisions and addressing code compliance issues, in attracting tourists to help our economy, in providing library and literacy services, in maintaining parks and recreational programs, in developing and balancing budget, in managing our valuable water resources and controlling our solid waste, and much more. Unfortunately, the BOCCs academy classes are held on Thursday afternoons, so are relatively inaccessible to most working citizens. It would be helpful to have an alternative to accommodate those who cannot get away during weekdays. There is personal value in being informed. And there is additional value for the community, for the more people who participate in the countys citizens academy program, the more transparency and accountability will be promoted in county government.

I think that was very informative on Mr. Kriegers part. It would really be interesting if Mr. Krieger or the Chronicle would research the amount of monies that our political agencies spend on accreditation and other certifications, national recognitions that they receive.

They dont come cheap. You pay for them.Campaign ad After reading Roger Kriegers letter to the editor about our sheriffs spending, I want to go one more step. When I read the multi-page flyer that the sheriff produced, I felt this was just a campaign ad for the upcoming election. Now when I read the flyer cost $5,600 of taxpayers money, I have become outraged. Sheriff Dawsy, do the right thing and reimburse the county $5,600 from your campaign funds.

Sentenced Associated Press Dr. Conrad Murray sits in court Tuesday after he was sentenced to four years in county jail for his involuntary manslaughter conviction in the death of pop star Michael Jackson, in Superior Court in Los Angeles. Jackson doctor gets four years LOS ANGELES A judges stern voice broke the silence of a Los Angeles courtroom: Money for madness medicine, he said before sentencing Dr. Conrad Murray to the maximum four years behind bars for Michael Jacksons death. Absolutely no sense of fault, and is and remains dangerous to the community, Judge Michael Pastor said as he delivered a nearly halfhour tongue lashing that denounced Murray as a greedy, remorseless physician whose gross negligence killed the King of Pop. Pastor said Murray sold out his profession for a promised fee of $150,000 a month and accused Murray of committing a horrific violation of trust when he agreed to give Jackson a powerful anesthetic every night as an unorthodox cure for insomnia. Murray will likely serve less than two years in county jail, not state prison, because of Californias overcrowded prisons and jails. Voter Associated Press Fadila Mohammed, 90, holds up her inked thumb that shows she has voted Tuesday at a polling station in Cairo, Egypt. Big turnout for Egypt elections CAIRO Egypts military rulers were quick to take credit Tuesday for a strong turnout in the first elections since Hosni Mubaraks ouster, a vote that appeared to be the countrys freest and fairest in living memory. The military did not field candidates in the parliamentary vote. But winning bragging rights for a smooth, successful and virtually fraudfree election would significantly boost the ruling generals in their bitter struggle with youthful protesters in Cairos Tahrir Square calling for them to transfer power immediately to a civilian authority. When we plan, we execute and, at the end, we succeed, Maj. Gen. Ismail Etman, a member of the ruling military council, said in a television interview. He compared the elections to one of the Egyptian militarys proudest moments when they battled Israeli forces across the Suez Canal in 1973. The armed forces pulled off this election like they pulled off the crossing in 1973, he said. Already, the ruling councils perceived success seems to have taken the wind out of Tahrir protests, at least temporarily. The square that was the center of the anti-Mubarak uprising had as many vendors as protesters on Tuesday. From wire reports Nation BRIEF World BRIEF N ATION & W ORLD Page A14 WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressBRUSSELS Eurozone ministers offered Greece a $10.7 billion Christmas rescue package Tuesday to stem an immediate cash crisis yet failed to resolve fears that the common euro currency might be doomed. The 17 finance ministers insisted they found a veneer of credibility to coat the euros rescue fund with enough leverage to deal with potential financial crises much bigger than the one facing peripheral Greece. And they called on the International Monetary Fund for resources to help further protect Europes embattled currency. We made important progress on a number of fronts, Jean-Claude Juncker, the eurozone chief, said late Tuesday. After saying earlier that the eurozones rescue fund would be able to leverage up to $1.3 trillion, the funds chief remained vague on how beefed up it was after Tuesdays meeting in Brussels. Klaus Regling said it would grow according to demands and market conditions, but assured reporters it was more than big enough to deal with Europes immediate financial debt problems. Still, making progress on the fund a firewall to keep Europes debt problems from engulfing nation after nation shows our complete determination to do whatever it takes to safeguard the financial stability of the euro, Juncker said. Italy remained an enormous concern. Carrying five times as much debt as Greece, Italy was battered for the third straight day in the bond markets, seeing its borrowing rates soar to unsustainable levels of 7.56 percent. Investors appear increasingly wary of the countrys chances of avoiding default and making matters worse, the eurozones third largest economy is deemed too big for Europe to bail out. The ministers still insisted Italys new prime minister would come through, saying he has promised to balance Italys budget by 2013. We have full confidence that Mario Monti will be able to deliver this program, Juncker said. Crisis sends euro chiefs scrambling Latest package offers $10.7B to Greece Associated PressTEHRAN, Iran Hard-line Iranian protesters stormed British diplomatic compounds Tuesday, hauling down the Union Jack, torching an embassy vehicle and pelting buildings with bombs in what began as an apparent state-approved show of anger over the latest Western sanctions to punish Tehran for defiance over its nuclear program. The hours-long assault on the British Embassy and a residential complex for staff in chaotic scenes reminiscent of the seizing of the U.S. Embassy in 1979 could push already frayed diplomatic ties toward the breaking point. Irans parliament approved a bill Sunday to downgrade relations with Britain, one of Americas closest allies, with diplomatic envoys in the Islamic Republic. Calling Tuesdays attack outrageous and indefensible, British Prime Minister David Cameron said Irans failure to defend the embassy and its staff was a disgrace and would have serious consequences. He said all embassy staff had been accounted for and praised Britains ambassador to Iran for handling a dangerous situation with calm and professionalism. Sorting out who to blame may be difficult. The late-afternoon demonstration outside the British Embassy was organized by pro-government groups at universities and Islamic seminaries, and could not have taken place without official sanction. However, such anti-Western rallies often draw ultraconservative factions such as the basiji, a paramilitary group run by the powerful Revolutionary Guard that is directly controlled by Irans ruling theocracy. Riot police initially clashed with mobs in attempts to hold them back, but protesters surged past cordons and scaled the walls at the embassy complex, which they pelted with petrol bombs and stones. Flames shot out of a sport utility vehicle parked outside the brick building and occupiers tossed papers apparently looted from an office. Death to England! some cried outside the compound in the first significant assault of a foreign diplomatic area in Iran in years. Inside the compound, protesters replaced the British flag with a banner in the name of 7th-century Shiite saint, Imam Hussein. One man showed a picture of Queen Elizabeth II apparently taken off a wall. Chants called for the closure of the embassy and called it a spy den the same phrase used after militants stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran after the 1979 Islamic Revolution and held 52 hostages for 444 days. In the early moments of that siege, protesters tossed out papers from the compound and pulled down the U.S. flag. Washington and Tehran have had no diplomatic relations since then. Irans state TV said Irans Foreign Ministry expressed regret about unacceptable behavior of protesters, saying Iran respects international agreements to protect diplomatic sites.

Associated PressATLANTA Herman Cain told aides Tuesday he is assessing whether the latest allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior against him create too much of a cloud for his Republican presidential candidacy to go forward. Acknowledging the firestorm arising from an accusation of infidelity, Cain only committed to keeping his campaign schedule for the next several days, in a conference call with his senior staff. If a decision is made, different than to plow ahead, you all will be the first to know, he said, according to a transcript of the call made by the National Review, which listened to the conversation. It was the first time doubts about Cains continued candidacy had surfaced from the candidate himself. As recently as Tuesday morning, a campaign spokesman had stated unequivocally that Cain would not quit. Cain denied anew that he had an extramarital affair with a Georgia woman who went public a day earlier with allegations they had been intimate for 13 years. It was just a friendship relationship, he said on the call, according to the transcript. That being said, obviously, this is a cause for reassessment. He went on: With this latest one, we have to do an assessment as to whether or not this is going to create too much of a cloud, in some peoples minds, as to whether or not they would be able to support us going forth. Saying the episode had taken an emotional toll on him and his family, Cain told the aides that people will have to decide whether they believe him or the accuser. Thats why were going to give it time, to see what type of response we get from our supporters. Cain has denied the affair, as well as several other accusations of inappropriate sexual behavior that have dogged his candidacy over the past month. He had been publicly resolute about pressing ahead even as his standing in public opinion polls and his fundraising started to slide. But in the conference call, he pledged only to keep his imminent schedule, including a foreign policy speech at Hillsdale College in Michigan later Tuesday that he promised to deliver with vim, vigor and enthusiasm. He scrapped at least one planned event, withdrawing from a party in New York on Sunday to meet with some of the citys top journalists including NBCs Matt Lauer and ABCs Barbara Walters. Cain to rethink run for W.H. Allegations dog campaign Associated PressNEW YORK For most of the 240,000 passengers who fly American Airlines each day, the airlines bankruptcy filing should have little noticeable impact. American continues to operate flights, honor tickets and take reservations. It says its frequent-flier program will be unaffected. Some travelers may eventually see fewer American flights at their airport. The incoming CEO said American would probably reduce its flight schedule modestly while restructuring in bankruptcy court. But that would continue a strategy in place at American in response to high jet fuel prices. The real risk to Americans passengers is if the restructuring fails, the airline ultimately liquidates and ceases to fly. Even then, many travelers are protected if they bought tickets with a credit card. Delta, United, Continental and US Airways have all gone through Chapter 11. Travelers continued to book tickets. Planes still took off and landed and frequent flier miles were still earned and redeemed. In fact, the bankruptcy process is usually more taxing on the airlines shareholders, who tend to get wiped out. Or on workers, who can lose pay and benefits, and even their job. The Chapter 11 filing is likely to dampen the spirits of flight attendants and pilots as their fears about salary and pension cuts become more urgent. American is the nations third-largest airline behind United Continental Holdings Inc. and Delta Air Lines Inc. It operates out of five major hubs in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago and Miami. American Airlines off into bankruptcy Passengers unlikely to see much impact

Crystal River High Schools Brooke Levins was on fire, scoring three goals for her team in a district matchup against The Villages (1-4-1 overall, 1-2 district). The junior forward added an assist to her count before the night was over. Her teammates, Clarissa Consol and Aubrie Menster, added a pair of goals each as the Pirates (5-2-1, 3-1) outshot the Buffaloes 47-3. Natalie Ezzell booted one in from 10 yards out with 13:12 left in the game to finish off the night. Consol scored the first goal unassisted at 29:52. Mensters first goal followed about five minutes later. Melissa Cong Cuesta added an assist. Consol scored her second goal the third for the night with an assist from Cassidy Newcomer at 7:47. Menster scored her second goal at five minutes in the half with Levins assisting. Levins netted her hat trick next, hitting the final goal of the first half on the equivalent of a basketball lay-up. Menster passed to Levins, who was in front the net and tapped the ball in. In the second half, Levins booted one in unassisted from 15 yards out at 34:22. She added her third from 15 yards out with 26:09 left in the half. Consol received the assist. A lot of it was they passed the defense and I worked into it, Levins said.

Ndamukong Suh is going back to the NFL, this time hoping for some leniency. The league suspended Detroits All-Pro defensive tackle without pay for two games Tuesday, punishing the second-year player for roughing up a Green Bay Packers offensive lineman after the whistle last week. Suh promptly appealed his suspension, hoping his stomp doesnt keep him away from his playoffhopeful teammates when they need him most. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Suhs hearing will be with Art Shell, an appointed appeal officer who is paid by the league and NFLPA. Coltss defensive coach Coyer firedINDIANAPOLIS Curtis Painter and Larry Coyer are out in Indianapolis, and it could be just the start of the changes for the winless Colts. Coach Jim Caldwell broke up a normally quiet Tuesday by announcing Coyer had been fired as defensive coordinator and Dan Orlovsky would replace Painter at quarterback when the Colts play at New England on Sunday. Longtime linebackers coach Mike Murphy will replace Coyer. The moves come in the midst of a shocking 0-11 season and two days after Indy may have lost its last chance at a win. Judge holds off NBA proceedingsMINNEAPOLIS A Minnesota federal judge has put the legal fight between the NBAs players and owners on hold to give the two sides time to finish their collective bargaining agreement. U.S. District Judge Patrick Schiltz granted a request by the players and issued a stay of all court proceedings Tuesday. The stay is valid until Dec. 9, by which time a formal collective bargaining agreement is expected to be approved. The two sides reached a tentative agreement Saturday and are now in the process of completing the negotiations. Before the proposal can be approved, the players must re-form their union and some secondary issues must be resolved. If the deal is ratified, training camps are tentatively scheduled to open Dec. 9. From wire reports Syracuse: Boeheim is our coach Associated PressSYRACUSE, N.Y. Syracuse University Chancellor Nancy Cantor gave mens basketball coach Jim Boeheim a vote of confidence Tuesday amid an investigation of child molestation allegations against his former longtime assistant coach. Cantor emerged from an economic development conference with state officials and said: Coach Boeheim is our coach. Some commentators and sex abuse victims advocates had said Boeheim should resign or be fired after three men, including two former Syracuse ballboys, accused former assistant coach Bernie Fine of molesting them and Boeheim verbally attacked the accusers. Coach Boeheim is our coach; hes getting the team ready tonight, Cantor said. Were very pleased with what he said Sunday night, and we stand by him. In his 36th season at his alma mater, Hall of Famer Boeheim ranks fifth alltime in wins in Division I and has a record 33 20-win seasons. In 2004, the university named the Carrier Dome court Jim Boeheim Court. After initially saying Fines first two accusers were lying to make money in the wake of the Penn State University sexual abuse scandal, Boeheim backed off those comments in a statement Sunday. What is most important is that this matter be fully investigated and that anyone with information be supported to come forward so that the truth can be found, Boeheim said after the firing of Fine, who has denied the allegations. I deeply regret any statements I made that might have inhibited that from occurring or been insensitive to victims of abuse. Bobby Davis first contacted Syracuse police in 2002 about Fine, but there was no investigation because the statute of limitations had passed. Kevin Quinn, a spokesman for the university, said police did not inform the university of Davis allegations then. On Tuesday, the Syracuse police chief said Dennis DuVal, a former SU basketball player who was police chief in 2002, knew of the allegations against Fine. Some still call for basketball leader to quit Lecanto boys beat Crystal River on home court S EAN A RNOLD CorrespondentLECANTO It was another strong second period performance for the Lecanto High School boys basketball team in its gym on Tuesday. A pair of field goals by Crystal River junior forward Robert Speakman put the Pirates even with the Panthers at 15 with seven minutes remaining in the half. But then Lecanto senior point guard Skylar Summers ignited his squad with three field goals within a minute and a pair of early blocks to help the Panthers embark on a 28-16 run, giving them a 43-31 lead at the break. The Pirates stayed within reach for the remainder, but they were outmanned by a deeper Panther bench as Lecanto moved to 3-0 with a 75-61 win. Afterward, Panthers coach Eddie Buckley discussed the contributions by Summers a J USTIN P LANTE CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER County rivalries always produce some of the seasons best games, and Tuesday night was no exception. In what started out as a one-sided affair, the Lecanto High School girls basketball team, lead by sophomore Paige Richards and junior Megan Straight, defeated Crystal River 57-43, handing the Lady Pirates their second loss of the season. Lecantos offense started early, going up by nine points right off the bat. The key to their early success: ball control. They moved the ball very well among the perimeter and slowed the pace to find open shots. On the defensive side of the ball, junior Miranda Barber stole the show. Her game high 12 rebounds took away the second shot opportunities for the Lady Pirates. And with a lot of shots not going through, the Panthers pounce Lecanto girls defeat county rival Crystal River Larry Coyer Ndamukong Suh Jim Boeheim See SYRACUSE / Page B5 Lady Pirates fell behind quick. We went shot 5 of 27 from the field, Crystal River head coach Jason Rodgers said. That hurts us. We shot better from the free throw line, which is great, but we just had a lot of shots fall short. After shooting 5-23 from the free-throw line Monday night, the Lady Pirates improved at the stripe, going 14-24. But what hurt was the deficit. The Lady Pirates were down by as much as 20 points at one point. Crystal River just couldnt find their rhythm for the majority of the game, often settling for bad looks and rushing down the court. Lecanto coach Brittany Szunko made it a point to change up the defensive looks in this game. We wanted to mix it up a ton tonight, she said. We tried to throw some looks at them they havent seen, keep them guessing. Lecantos offense flexed See PIRATES / Page B4 See BUFFALO / Page B4 See BOYS / Page B4 See GIRLS / Page B4

The pool of young talent in golf has never looked deeper. Rory McIlroy won the U.S. Open at age 22, the second-youngest player to win a major since the Masters began in 1934. Jason Day, the 23-year-old Australian, was a runner-up in two majors this year. Rickie Fowler, 22, won his first pro event in South Korea and is responsible for all those bright orange Puma hats in just about any gallery. Matteo Manassero won twice on the European Tour before he was 18. Ryo Ishikawa had 10 wins in Japan before he was 19. The list gets even longer with budding stars in their 20s Martin Kaymer, Charl Schwartzel, Dustin Johnson, Keegan Bradley, Webb Simpson and Anthony Kim. Attribute that depth to Tiger Woods. Its not because he set the bar so high and made everyone try to get better. Its because he no longer wins so many tournaments. So maybe the pool only looks deeper because it no longer has such a big fish. For the second straight year, nobody won more than three times on the PGA Tour. And both years, that third win came in their last tournament Luke Donald last month at Disney, Jim Furyk last year at the Tour Championship. The five previous years, Woods won at least six times in all but one year. The exception was 2008, when he missed the second half of the year with knee surgery. He won four times in six starts. Its one thing to talk about this great parity in golf, particularly on the biggest tour. But two questions should be asked: Would that perception of parity exist if Woods had not gone away the last two years? Is it possible that just as many great young players were around over the last decade, only to be overlooked by the overwhelming presence of the games biggest star? Sergio Garcia nearly won the PGA Championship at 19 except that he went up against Woods that day in Medinah. Adam Scott was 23 when he won The Players Championship. Justin Leonard was 25 when he won the British Open. Phil Mickelson won as an amateur. The talk like theres parity on tour is slightly flawed, because theres always been parity, Geoff Ogilvy said in a recent interview. Its just that there was one guy who made no one notice. The last 15 years youve had Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, David Duval, Adam Scott, Sergio Garcia. You had arguably more proven players lots of them over the last 15 years. Now its the same. You have new names, but we notice them now. The media notices them. Fans notice them. They used to be looked upon as possible challengers to Woods. Now they are seen as potential replacements. Woods has gone two years since his last win, which for so many years seemed unimaginable until his personal life unraveled, until he chose to go through yet another swing change, then effectively went four months without being able to practice due to injury. Through it all, his confidence eroded with each setback. Thirteen players have won the last 13 majors, dating to Padraig Harrington at the 2008 PGA Championship. There was a time when Woods won seven out of 11 majors early in his career, and six out of 14 majors right before reconstructive knee surgery. If he had kept winning at the rate he did for 14 years, would anyone have noticed this crop of young players? Rory McIlroy would still be up there, Hunter Mahan said Tuesday. But Tiger played a practice round and it made news. Hes chasing records whenever he plays. How are you not going to write about that? No offense to the young guys. Nick Watney also suggested that McIlroy, based on his sheer talent and eight-shot win at the U.S. Open, would get his fair share of attention even if Woods had kept winning a major a year, along with a half-dozen other titles. But he would be like Sergio was, like Adam Scott was, like whoever the media tabbed Charles Howell, at one point, Watney said. The question is whether Woods can get back. The Chevron World Challenge, for an 18-man field in which everyone but the host Woods is among the top 50, figures to be a good benchmark. Woods has gone 26 official events without winning. He is coming off two strong weeks in Australia during which he hit the ball where he was aiming for nine rounds in windy conditions. To win at Sherwood or even to be in contention would send expectations for 2012 higher than they have been in two years. But the road back doesnt start until hes posing with a trophy. What happens then? Only three players at Sherwood are older than Woods (Steve Stricker, Jim Furyk and K.J. Choi), so the challengers he faces around the world are all younger than they used to be. And while none of these guys has won more than three times in a year, they feel a lot better about themselves because no one else has won that much more. Thats the Tiger effect. Golf is a very confidence-driven game, Ogilvy said. A lot of these players now have more confidence than if he was winning eight times a year. Because if a guy is winning eight times a year, even if you win three times, you dont feel like youre as good of a player because theres someone whos so much better than you. Donald is No. 1 by a wide margin, courtesy of his work ethic, consistently being in the top 10 and four wins around the world. But its not domination that golf saw for the better part of a dozen years. Golf always has had its share of rising stars. It only looks as if there are more now because no one is that much better than anyone else. Without big fish, pool looks deeper Woodss travails shift focus to younger stars Associated Press Tiger Woods reacts to a bad shot on the eighth fairway during the third round of the Australian Open golf tournament Nov. 12 in Sydney, Australia. All but three players at the Chevron World Challenge are younger than Tiger Woods, perhaps evidence golf has never been so load ed with young talent. But that might be misleading. If Woods had kept winning, odds are the public would not have noticed these guys. Ladies invitational tourney next weekThe Lakeside Womens Golf Association is partnering with the Citrus Springs WGA in offering area ladiesan invitation to play in the annual two-day tournament Mistletoe and Holly on Dec. 6 and 7. For entry forms and details, call Jan at (352) 344-9550. Johnson has surgery on kneeJUPITER Dustin Johnson had surgery Tuesday to repair cartilage in his right knee. He is expected to be out of competition until sometime in January. Johnson won The Barclays in August to become the first player since Tiger Woods in 1999 to win in each of his first four years on the PGA Tour straight out of college. Johnson is expected to be crutches for a week, then resume chipping and putting. He should be at full speed by the end of December before returning to golf. It was not clear if he would be able to play the Tournament of Champions at Kapalua, which starts Jan. 6. Day wants dads ashes at Augusta Jason Day said he plans to speak to officials at Augusta National about spreading some of his fathers ashes over the home of the Masters. Alvyn Day, who gave Jason his start in golf, died of cancer when Day was 12, and one of his final requests was that his son spread some of his ashes at Augusta National if Day were to ever play there. The 24-year-old Day tied for second this year in his debut at the Masters. Its a plan but obviously if I dont get clearance from Augusta, I am not going to do it, Day said last week at the Australian PGA Championship. That was one of my dads wishes and if I was allowed to do it, that would be great. Obviously, I know how the rules are at Augusta, it would be probably very unlikely, but we will see how it goes.

Associated PressSEVILLE, Spain Argentina is putting the pressure on Spain, calling the defending champions the favorites on home soil in the Davis Cup final. Led by second-ranked Rafael Nadal and No. 5 David Ferrer, Spain is vying for its third title in four years while the South Americans are looking for their first in fourth attempts. The best-of-five series begins Friday on clay at the Olympic Stadium with two opening singles matches. Theres always pressure, especially in a final. But they are favored over us and have more pressure, Argentina player David Nalbandian said Tuesday. It is a very complicated series, one where we can win or lose all the points. We have to be well prepared. Spain has won 20 straight at home since 1999, while Nadal and Ferrer are a combined 25-0 in singles play on clay in the competition. Nadal hasnt lost a singles match since his debut in 2004, accumulating an 181 record in singles. We could win or lose 4-1 or 1-4 or 3-2, Argentina captain Tito Vazquez said. Rafa is a fortress on clay and so is Ferrer. The series is a rematch of the 2008 final, when Spain won at Argentina despite missing an injured Nadal. Thats in the past, completely in the past, Argentina player Juan Martin del Potro said. After that final, we grew up. Ive improved my game a lot and now we have another chance. Every final is different. Here its different players, different surface, different stadium and this time Spain is the favorite. Its going to be different than Mar del Plata, if we are in good shape and remain focused. The pair of Spanishspeaking nations have been testing out the court for days, with the Argentines still getting used to the peculiar shadows inside the Olympic Stadium. Vazquez said the surface was relatively quick and slippery. Its not easy to see very well, there are bright spots and dark ones, he said. But thats the way the court is. We have to adapt. Thats what happens when the host gets to choose the surface and the balls, which are also a little strange. Nadal is coming off a disappointing exit at the ATP World Tour Finals, where he admitted he had lost some passion for the game. Associated Press Rafael Nadal returns the ball during a tennis training session Monday at the La Cartuja stadium, in Seville.

Associated Press Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland hits a drive as he plays Ryo Ishikawa of Japan during their nine-hole golf match Monday for a television event at Yokohama Country Course near Tokyo, Japan. Associated PressHONG KONG Rory McIlroy intends to spend more time playing in the U.S next year, juggling his commitments with the European Tour as he seeks to make an impact on both sides of the Atlantic. The U.S. Open Champion from Northern Ireland carries a career-best world ranking of No. 2 into the Hong Kong Open, which gets under way on Thursday at the Hong Kong Golf Club, Fanling. I will add on a couple more events to my schedule in America next year, McIlroy said Tuesday. It wont be a drastic change, but I love playing on the golf courses in the U.S. But this doesnt mean Im going to neglect Europe. I will continue to play on the European Tour like I did this year, spending time between both tours. McIlroy, who recently split with longtime manager Chubby Chandler, reduced his playing commitments on the PGA Tour this season figuring in only 10 tournaments, down from a high of 16 in 2010. He pointed to world No. 1 Luke Donald as an example of someone who has successfully played both sides of the Atlantic. Luke (Donald) has proved this year that that it can be done. He has played on both tours and he heads the money list on both as well, McIlroy said. Englishman Donald topped the PGA Tour money list with earnings of more than $6.5 million from 19 tournament appearances, and heads the European Tours Race to Dubai with winnings of more than $5.1 million from a dozen events. McIlroy, who finished a comparatively low 29th on the concluded PGA Tour money list with $2.3 million, is currently in third place on the European Tour money list and is hoping a good share of the $2.75 million on offer in Hong Kong this week will reduce his gap to Donald. I certainly hope this will be my year. I have come close twice in Hong Kong, finishing second in 2008 and 2009. Maybe this time I can do it, McIlroy said. The field also include defending champion Ian Poulter and England World Cup-teammate Justin Rose, and former major champions Padraig Harrington and YE Yang. I have been coming to Hong Kong since I was 15 and I just love this place. It is one of my favorite cities and I hope I can win this tournament for the first time, McIlroy said. This has been a great year for me and I hope to finish it off in style. Traveling the globe McIlroy to up appearances on U.S. tour

C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S COREBOARD B4 W EDNESDAY, N OVEMBER30, 2011 senior captain who has moved from shooting guard to the point this year that often fail to show up in box scores. Sometimes, I think people get lost in stats like points and rebounds. But hes like a floor general out there, Buckley said. As he goes, we go. When hes pushing the ball and getting after it defensively, were tough. Despite the loss, Crystal Rivers (0-3) recent improvements in talent and competitiveness were evident as they wrestled with an eightto an 11-point deficit most of the second half. It wasnt easy, as they dressed eight and were without senior forwards Will Cleveland (high ankle sprain) and Trevor Phipps (flu). The Pirates started four sophomores and freshman forward Sam Franklin (eight points), who led the game with 16 rebounds and five blocks. We really could have used Will Cleveland on the inside, Pirates coach Steve Feldman said. Lecanto found their bread-andbutter going inside to (senior forward) Clayton Roessler, or whoever they wanted, really. We just didnt have enough bodies inside. It reminded me of the Citrus game. I thought we played a real good first quarter when our energy was high, he added. Lecanto did what they do in the second quarter, and tried to get Sam in some foul trouble before the half. Their press didnt make us turn it over as much as it just tired us out. We were even in assistturnover ratio at the break. Roessler led all scorers with 16 points, and junior forward Richie Rizzolo followed closely with 15 as he connected on three 3s in the first half. Along with Summers, Roessler and Rizzolo, senior forward Winsor Sineus, who scored nine of his 12 points in the second, and junior forward Robert Vega were integral to the Panthers momentous second quarter. Vega and Sineus each pulled down a halfdozen rebounds on the night. Winsor and Vega really play the hustle point guys for us, Buckley said. Crystal River sophomore point guard Ty Reynolds notched a double-double, posting a team-high 14 points and 10 assists. He also added four steals. Sophomore forward Kaileb McColley drained a pair of 3-pointers in the final period en route to a 12point night for his Pirates. Speakman also chipped in a dozen points. We tried to wear them down, Buckley said of his persistent opponent. But theyve got good guards and good young kids. Theyll take their lumps, but theyre going to be good. Feldman was pleased with his teams tenacity. Overall, youre never pleased with a loss, but Im proud of what these eight guys gave us, he said. Compared to where weve been in the past, it was far better, tonight. We made too many mistakes, he added. Weve got to correct them. Lecanto plays its first district game tonight at Springstead. Crystal River will host Eustis on Friday for its conference opener. Crystal River coach Bill Reyes believes his team played solid soccer, but thinks there is room for improvement. They didnt play as hard as I would like, he said. They were coming off a week of few practices. We played smart soccer where we didnt have to work too hard. Im satisfied with the performance. She (Levins) is a hard worker and a lot of times the team feeds off her hard work. its muscles as two players reached the 19-point mark. Megan Straight and Paige Richards contributed 38 of Lecantos 57 total points, while Marie Buckley added another nine. Lecanto executed very well tonight, Rodgers said. They did what they were supposed to. Theyre a good team. I told the team before we came tonight that Lecantos a good team. Im proud of my girls though. They didnt quit, and they played hard throughout the game. The Lady Pirates found themselves in the second half, outscoring Lecanto 2723 coming out of the half. But the 18-point deficit from the first half was just too much to overcome. Lady Panthers head coach Brittany Szunko put it best. When any of these teams in the county play each other, its anyones game, he said. GIRLS Continued from Page B1 PIRATESContinued from Page B1 defender Nathan Hubbard. That would be the only mistake made by Sullivan, who made 10 saves the rest of the game. Holt put VHS (2-1, 1-0) on the scoreboard in the ninth minute to tie the game at 1. Houston scored from long range in the 20th minute to give the Buffalo a 2-1 lead. DeMarco scored two straight goals in the 27th minute and 30th minute to make it a 4-1 game at halftime. DeMarco completed the hat trick with a blast to top right corner of the net in the 55th minute to increase the lead to 5-1. Parr closed out the scoring with a goal in the 77th minute set up by a perfect centering pass from Holt. We got outshot 15-9, Crystal River coach Bobby Verlago said. Two goalkeepers were in the net for the Pirates. Senior Jerry Crawford earned five saves while freshman Kyle Kidd had four. Crystal Rivers next game is 7 p.m. Friday at home.

M ICHAEL M AKSYMICZ CorrespondentThe Palmetto Bay Broncos ended the Crystal River Jr. Midget football teams championship hopes Friday, 26-16, in St. Cloud. The game was for the Southeast Regional Pop Warner Championship. If successful, the Sharks would have been part of the eight teams vying for the title of ESPN Wide World of Sports Pop Warner Champion at Walt Disney in Orlando. The Sharks trailed 20-16 before losing star running back Khyrel Harvey to injury in the third quarter. The team played very positively knowing that they were playing with the best of the best, Coach Russ Baldner said. In the first quarter, Ricky Heymans, their starting corner, posted the first score of the game. The Broncos then came back and tied the score. The Broncos took a 20-8 lead in the second quarter by capitalizing on a pair of Sharks mistakes. The Sharks scored on their first possession of the third quarter to cut the lead to 20-16. On the ensuing kick off, the Sharks recovered an onside kick, but could not make it pay off in points. During halftime, I was able to have the team refocus and get their mojo working again, Baldner said. In the fourth quarter, the teams traded possessions until the Broncos scored the final touchdown at the three-minute mark. I am very proud of these boys and how they played as a team, Baldner said. Crystal River Sharks beaten by Broncos Palmetto Bay ends Junior Midgets season Crystal River Sharks vs. Palmetto Bay Broncos in Junior Midget Football1234Final Sharks 808016 Broncos8120626 J OE K ORNECKI III CorrespondentInverness The Lady Hurricanes basketball team kept their winning record with a 52-44 victory over an athletic Wildwood squad Tuesday night. Both teams had trouble finding their rhythm in the first period, but Lindsay Connors still scored four of her teams nine points in the opening period. For Wildwood (2-2), JaQuasha Sester had four first-period points, half of her teams total. But the Lady Canes led 9-8 at the end of the first. Wildwood was a fast, athletic and aggressive team, Citrus head coach Brian Lattin said. In the first half, we let them dictate the pace of the game. In the second half, we played more relaxed and under control. Its one of those games that will make us better. The second period featured more of the same as the first, but both teams battled hard, diving for loose balls and fighting for rebounds. Wildwoods Quansanay Ewings bucket tied the score at 14-14 with 2:50 remaining before halftime, but Lindsay Connors hit a 3pointer to put Citrus up 1714 with 1:50 left. Citrus (5-0) would lead 21-17 at halftime. The Lady Wildcats came back in the third period. Wildwood took the lead 2725 with 6:02 left when Sester scored on a 3-point play as she converted a basket and hit her free throw. The Canes responded quickly as Mary Wheeler assisted Paige Garvin for the basket to knot it at 27-27. Citrus went on to lead 36-30 at the end of period. Garvin scored 13 points in the third period. In the fourth, the Lady Canes pulled away but the Wildcats mounted a rally to pull within four at 48-44. But Connors and Wheeler sealed the victory at the free-throw line, giving Citrus a 52-44 victory. Citruss Connors had six points while Shenelle Toyen and Paige Garvin scored four points a piece in the fourth quarter. Its nice to get the win, but we still need more work, Lattin afterwards. The Lady Canes will host North Marion on Thursday night. Lady Hurricanes hold off Wildcats Citrus wins its fifth straight Panthers 75 Pirates 61 M ICHAEL M AKSYMICZ CorrespondentLECANTO The Warriors boys basketball team drove to a commanding lead in their game against the Red Devils, but fatigue and a running game on both sides led to a 70-61 defeat Tuesday night. All during the game it appeared Seven Rivers Christian School had control and would collect a win. However, fatigue started to show in the late in the third period and carried into the fourth. In the first half, I thought that we played with great intensity at both ends of the court, Seven Rivers coach Jim Ervin said. In the second half, I thought that the fatigue set in during the fourth period, but I thought that we played defense very well. With 40 seconds left in the third, the Red Devils took the lead and the Warriors never rebounded. Seven Rivers Adam Gage was hot from the 3-point arc, while teammate Sam Jones contributed two from the outside. But both fouled out in the fourth period. Adam Gage played outstanding tonight and knocked down some big shots, Ervin said. Fatigue got the best of him also. I thought that Jones handled the pressure very well tonight, and even under fatigue, he always plays well. In the first period, the Warriors were constantly stealing passes and demonstrating heads up ball. Tonight was a good game for Seven Rivers and we will learn a lot from tonight the coach said. Seven Rivers falls to Williston, 70-61 Sports BRIEF AP: Red Sox choose Valentine as managerThe Boston Red Sox have picked Bobby Valentine to be their next manager and the sides were working to complete a contract, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press on Tuesday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made. Several media outlets in Boston, citing anonymous sources, reported earlier in the evening that Valentine would be the teams new manager. Hes got it. I just spoke to him a little while ago, Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda, who managed Valentine in the minors with the Los Angeles Dodgers, said in a telephone interview with the AP. The Red Sox had no comment, spokesperson Pam Ganley said. Valentine would succeed Terry Francona, who left after eight seasons following Bostons record collapse in September. From wire reports

F OOTBALL /C OLLEGE B ASKETBALL/NHL C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE W EDNESDAY, N OVEMBER30, 2011 B5 Police Chief Frank Fowler said DuVal, who played for the Orange from 1972-74, was aware of Davis accusations in 2002 that Fine sexually abused him. Fine, who has been fired, denies the allegations. Because Davis said the abuse stopped 12 years earlier, Syracuse Det. Doug Fox told him the statute of limitations had passed, meaning an arrest was not possible. Fox advised his supervisor in the abused persons unit but didnt file a formal report. The detective is still with the department but not in the same unit. A phone message left with DuVal was not immediately returned. On Nov. 17, Davis allegations resurfaced. Davis, now 39, told ESPN that Fine molested him beginning in 1984 and that the sexual contact continued until he was around 27. A ball boy for six years, Davis said the abuse occurred at Fines home, at Syracuse basketball facilities and on team road trips, including the 1987 Final Four. Davis stepbrother, Mike Lang, 45, who also was a ball boy, also told ESPN that Fine began molesting him while he was in fifth or sixth grade. A third man, Zach Tomaselli, who faces sexual assault charges in Maine involving a 14-year-old boy, said Sunday he told police last week that Fine molested him in 2002 in a Pittsburgh hotel room. Also on Sunday, ESPN played an audiotape, obtained and recorded by Davis, of an October 2002 telephone conversation between him and Fines wife, Laurie. ESPN said it hired a voice recognition expert to verify the voice on the tape and the network said it was determined to be that of Laurie Fine. During the call to the woman, Davis repeatedly asks her what she knew about the alleged molestation and she says she knew everything that went on. My heart goes out to the families. I have no comment about the Fine situation or the Boeheim situation, former Syracuse star Carmelo Anthony said. Thats a sensitive situation, a sensitive topic right now that I dont even want to go into. Cantor stressed the university is working with authorities. Weve been very straightforward and candid about this whole process, she said. Weve gone through our due diligence when things came up, and we felt it was important both for Bernie Fine and for the university to move forward. The chancellor has previously acknowledged that a man, now known to be Davis, contacted the school in 2005 with allegations against Fine. The school, which did not contact police, conducted its own investigation at that time but was unable to find any corroboration of the allegations. The university has turned over the results of the inquiry to the DAs office and has retained an independent law firm to review their procedures and response to those 2005 allegations. The U.S. Attorneys Office and the U.S. Secret Service have taken the lead in the current investigation. And Fowler said Syracuse police will change their procedures moving forward. I was not the chief in 2002 and I cannot change the procedures in place at that time or the way this matter was then handled, Fowler said in the statement. But what I can and will do as chief today is ensure that moving forward all reports of sexual abuse are formally documented. SYRACUSE Continued from Page B1 Associated PressJACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars are headed in a completely new direction. And Los Angeles doesnt appear to be the destination. Team owner Wayne Weaver fired longtime coach Jack Del Rio on Tuesday after a 3-8 start and agreed to sell the Jaguars to Illinois businessman Shahid Khan. Weaver named defensive coordinator Mel Tucker the interim coach and gave general manager Gene Smith a three-year contract extension, putting him in charge of the coaching search. The moves marked the most significant changes for the smallmarket franchise since its inception in 1993. Its the right thing at the right time and for the right reasons, Weaver said. Forbes reported the sale to be worth $760 million. The 77-year-old Weaver had been looking for an exit strategy for years, wanting to find someone to buy the team and keep it in Jacksonville. He had tears in his eyes several times as he announced his impending departure. Khan, 61, believes he is the right choice. Waynes legacy will be lasting, and I will always be grateful for Waynes trust and confidence in my commitment to the Jaguars, the NFL and the people of the Jacksonville community, Khan said in a statement. Born in Pakistan, Khan left home at age 16 to attend the University of Illinois. He graduated in 1971, a year after he started working for Flex-N-Gate Corp. in Urbana, Ill.

Blues 2, Capitals 1 WASHINGTON Dale Hunters NHL coaching career began with a thud Tuesday night as Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals struggled again in a 2-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues. T.J. Oshie and Matt DAgostini scored, Jaroslav Halak made 18 saves, and the Blues held Ovechkin without a shot on goal for two periods to win their fourth straight game and improve to 8-1-2 under Ken Hitchcock. Nicklas Backstrom got the lone goal for the Capitals, whose attack was as ineffective under Hunter as it had been recently under fired coach Bruce Boudreau. Washington was outshot 3019 by the stingiest defense in the NHL. Rangers 4, Penguins 3 NEW YORK John Mitchell and Brad Richards scored 90 seconds apart in New Yorks four-goal second period, and the Rangers held on to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 for their third consecutive win. Ryan Callahan and Marian Gaborik both had a goal and assist in the period, and Richards added two assists as New York won its seventh straight at home and 10th in 12 games overall. Henrik Lundqvist made 24 saves for his 10th win in 17 outings. Islanders 2, Sabres 1BUFFALO, N.Y.

Playing for the first time since assistant coach Bernie Fine was fired, No. 4 Syracuse remained unbeaten with an 84-48 victory over Eastern Michigan on Tuesday night. Fine has been accused by three men of molesting them and was fired Sunday after 35-plus years on the bench next to coach Jim Boeheim. Fine has denied the allegations. James Southerland scored 19 points to match his career high as the Orange improved their record to 7-0. Boeheim was greeted by a standing ovation when he walked onto the Carrier Dome court that bears his name. First-year Eastern Michigan coach Rob Murphy, an assistant for seven years under Boeheim, greeted the Hall of Famer with a warm hug, and Boeheim received another raucous cheer when he was introduced after the players. Then, it was back to basketball after a tumultuous weekend of new revelations in the investigation of child molestation allegations against Fine. No. 7 Baylor 90, Prairie View 54WACO, Texas Perry Jones III scored 27 points with some high-flying plays in his season debut, and No. 7 Baylor defeated Prairie View 90-54 Tuesday night to wrap up its season-opening six-game homestand undefeated. The Bears, after quickly falling behind 11-2, never trailed after Pierre Jacksons bounce pass to Jones for a one-handed slam dunk that made it 17-16 midway through the first half. That was part of 16 consecutive points by Baylor in a 4-minute spurt when Jones scored nine points. Jones, the 6-foot-11 sophomore forward who was the preseason Big 12 player of the year, had to sit out the first five games to complete an NCAA suspension for accepting improper benefits before he got to Baylor. His six-game penalty included the Bears finale last season in the Big 12 tournament. Virginia 70, No. 14 Michigan 58 CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. Mike Scott had 18 points and 11 rebounds Tuesday night and Virginia used a 19-2 second-half run to take command and beat No. 14 Michigan 70-58 in the Big Ten-ACC Challenge. Joe Harris added 18 points and freshman Malcolm Brogdon had 16 for the Cavaliers (6-1), who trailed 39-34 before Harris floater sparked the burst. Brogdon had eight points in the run, which made it 53-41 with 6:43 remaining. Scott had six points and Harris five. The Wolverines (5-2), who used a 16-10 run starting the second half to match their biggest lead of the game, went 6 minutes without a point during one stretch as Virginia repeatedly rebounded missed shots and went the other way. The Cavaliers outrebounded Michigan 36-26. Zack Novak led the Wolverines with 12 points and Trey Burke had 11. WOMEN GAMES No. 8 Tennessee 82, Middle Tennessee 43KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Cierra Burdick had 14 points and 10 rebounds and No. 8 Tennessee routed Middle Tennessee 82-43 on Tuesday night. Kortni Jones led MTSU with 16 points. Shekinna Stricklen took an inbounds pass, spun around and sank a jumper with 17:14 left in the first half that launched a 17-0 run. During the stretch, Tennessee stole the ball from Middle Tennessee on four consecutive possessions and got a basket in transition after each one. MTSU cut the margin to a single digit just once more on a layup by Ebony Rowe that made it 27-18 with 7:13 in the first half. Tennessee (3-2) hit 59.3 percent in the first half, including 6 of 9 from 3-point range. The Blue Raiders (4-3) struggled to get clean looks at the basket against the Lady Vols defense and hit just 28.6 percent in the first half, and Tennessee pushed the lead to 48-24 just before halftime.

Mariah Robinson scored 22 points, including 5-for-9 shooting on 3-pointers, for Murray State (2-5). Kayla Lowe added 13 points and Erica Burgess had 10. Senior guard Becky Burke scored 8 of the Cardinals first 10 points, capped by a 3 from the right corner with 16:54 to play that forced Murray State coach Rob Cross into a timeout, pulling all five starters for the second time in the games opening minutes.

China bans ads in TV dramas BEIJING Chinas government is prohibiting television stations from placing advertisements in the middle of TV dramas in a move meant to attract viewers and boost program quality. The ban, which was published Monday and takes effect Jan. 1, said no ads may appear in any drama series, whose episodes typically run 45 minutes. The order is the latest in a series since the ruling Communist Party last month endorsed a program to raise the entertainment and ideological value of cultural offerings to better hold the attention of Chinese increasingly turning to the Internet for alternate viewpoints. TV is the most popular, lucrative and, hence, tightly controlled of all media in China. The ad ban follows a directive last month to limit reality shows and other entertainment fare. The State Administration of Radio, Film and Television said eliminating ads from programs will improve the level of public cultural services, protect peoples basic cultural rights ... and leave the people satisfied. While ad revenue is expected to shrink, broadcasting executives and analysts quoted by state media said the ban will force TV stations to air higher quality series to keep viewers from switching stations. Fahrenheit 451 finally an e-book NEW YORK At age 91, Ray Bradbury is making peace with the future he helped predict. The science fiction/fantasy author and longtime enemy of the e-book has finally allowed his dystopian classic Fahrenheit 451 to be published in digital format. Simon & Schuster released the electronic edition Tuesday at a list price of $9.99. First published in paperback by Ballantine in 1953 and as a hardcover by Simon & Schuster in the 1960s, Fahrenheit 451 has sold more than 10 million copies and has been translated into 33 languages. It imagined a world in which the appetite for new and faster media leads to a decline in reading, and books are banned and burned. Bradbury himself has been an emphatic defender of traditional paper texts, saying that e-books smell like burned fuel and calling the Internet nothing but a big distraction. Its meaningless; its not real, he told The New York Times in 2009. Its in the air somewhere. A phone call to Bradbury was not immediately returned. A prerecorded voicemail message, a womans voice, warned that the author doesnt usually check his messages. Bradburys agent, Michael Congdon, said Tuesday that rights for Bradburys book were expiring and that the growing digital market, estimated at 20 percent or higher of overall sales, made a deal for e-books inevitable. A wave of former e-holdouts have changed their minds recently, notably Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. D AVIDG ERMAIN AP Movie Writer LOS ANGELES T he silent movie The Artist and the doomsday drama Take Shelter led the Spirit Awards honoring independent film on Tuesday with five nominations each, including best picture. Also in the running for best picture were the cancer tale /50; the action thriller Drive; and the family dramas Beginners and The Descendants. A black-and-white throwback to early Hollywood, The Artist also earned a lead-actor nomination for Jean Dujardin as a silent film star whose career crumbles as the sound era takes over in the late 1920s. The film grabbed directing and screenplay nominations for Michel Hazanavicius, along with a cinematography slot for Guillaume Schiffman. Take Shelter star Michael Shannon earned a lead-actor nomination as a family man who comes unhinged amid visions of a coming apocalyptic storm. Co-star Jessica Chastain was nominated for supporting actress, while Take Shelter also received nominations for director Jeff Nichols and a prize for emerging producers for Sophia Lin. Other lead-actor contenders were Ryan Gosling for Drive, Demian Bichir for the immigrant drama A Better Life and Woody Harrelson for the police story Rampart. The lead-actress field included Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe in My Week with Marilyn. Also nominated were Lauren Ambrose for the single-mom story Think of Me, Rachael Harris for the road-trip comedy Natural Selection, Adepero Oduye for the teen drama Pariah and Elizabeth Olsen as an escapee from a cult in Martha Marcy May Marlene. Presented by the cinema group Film Independent, the Spirit Awards will be handed out the day before the Academy Awards, at an afternoon ceremony on Feb. 25. The show will air later that night on IFC. The Spirit Awards nominations are one of the first key honors on the long road to the Oscars, which often are dominated by big Hollywood films but generally include many nominees from the independent film world. Last seasons top winner at the Spirit Awards, Black Swan, also was a hit with Academy voters, earning a best-picture nomination there and winning the best-actress Oscar for Natalie Portman. Notably absent from the Spirit Awards lineup was Academy Award winner George Clooney, considered a strong prospect for a best-actor nomination at the Oscars for The Descendants. Like Crazy, the top winner at last Januarys Sundance Film Festival, was completely overlooked, receiving no nominations. The stars of Woody Allens romantic fantasy Midnight in Paris among them Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams and Oscar winners Marion Cotillard and Kathy Bates missed out, too. But their relatively unknown co-star, Corey Stoll, picked up a supporting-actor nomination for his scene-stealing role as Ernest Hemingway. Clooneys young co-star Shailene Woodley, who plays his daughter in The Descendants, earned a supporting-actress slot. Nominees in the supporting categories included Christopher Plummer for Beginners, Oscar winner Anjelica Huston for /50, Albert Brooks for Drive and John Hawkes for Martha Marcy May Marlene, who won the supporting-actor prize at last seasons Spirit Awards for Winters Bone. Along with Hazanavicius and Nichols, directing nominees were Mike Mills for Beginners, Alexander Payne for The Descendants and Nicolas Winding Refn for Drive. Spirit Awards nominees were chosen by panels of film professionals. Members of Film Independent, who include filmmakers and movie fans, are eligible to vote on the winners. Eligible films must have production budgets of no more than $20 million and meet independent-cinema criteria that include uniqueness of vision and original, provocative subject matter.Silence and doom Your Birthday: It may be during those very times in the coming months when you feel everything is going against you that you will achieve some of your greatest successes. There is a lesson to be learned here: Never give up. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Put your analytical skills to work, so that you dont overlook any situation that could produce something that would be of a huge advantage to you. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be firm but also fair when it comes to any financial dealings. Dont feel obligated to give more than your share when you know you wont be compensated for it in any way. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) A lesson might be learned from a negative experience that you may have to endure. As long as what happens to you isnt wasted, it will be worth the unpleasantness. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Keep to yourself any ambitious undertaking that you are contemplating. Dont expose your intentions until you know you can pull if off without a hitch. Aries (March 21-April 19) Try to include in your business meetings an associate who has been a frequent presence. With this persons vast experience, she or he may have many unique things to offer. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Itll be your effectiveness, not your flamboyance, that gets the attention and wins the respect of others. You wont have to play any games, just the hard, cold facts will do. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Help a disagreeable old friend to look for the good in people instead of always dwelling on whats wrong. Its just a bad habit, and life can be a whole lot nicer if they can learn to brighten up. Cancer (June 21-July 22) If you can keep your mind riveted on the results that everyone desires, it will help overcome any obstacles that might periodically get in the way. Dont let anything impede your progress. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Concentrate on and emphasize the facts, not the frills when trying to present a case to others. Doing so would help sway to your cause the people whose help you need. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Get your mind off all the small details and focus on a profitable purpose as a whole. Once you do, everything else will automatically fall into place. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Your peers recognize that you have the leadership abilities to steer everyone through what might be a difficult situation. Take the reins and guide them through the maze. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) An opportunity, albeit of a limited nature, will present itself to you through the offices of a grateful person whom you assisted in the past.

Looking For A New Friend?Shop our Pets column in the Classified Section. 7 94601 E DUCATION Section C WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2011 Associated PressATLANTA A rising number of parents in more than half of states are opting out of school shots for their kids. And in eight states, more than 1 in 20 public school kindergartners do not get all the vaccines required for attendance, an Associated Press analysis found. That has health officials worried about possible new outbreaks of diseases that were all but stamped out. The AP analysis found more than half of states have seen at least a slight rise in the rate of exemptions over the past five years. States with the highest exemption rates are in the West and Upper Midwest. Its really gotten much worse, said Mary Selecky, secretary of health for Washington state, where 6 percent of public school parents have opted out. Rules for exemptions vary by state and can include medical, religious or in some states philosophical reasons. Parents reasons for skipping the shots vary. Some doubt that vaccines are essential. Others fear that vaccines carry their own risks. And some find it easier to check a box opting out than to get the shots and required paperwork. Still others are ambivalent, believing in older vaccines but questioning newer shots against, say, chickenpox. The number of shots is also giving some parents pause. By the time most children are 6, they will have been stuck with a needle about two dozen times See SHOTS / Page C3 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE 0009QC8 Big expansion, big questions for Teach for America Strong teachers needed for weak schools Associated PressMIAMI In a distressed neighborhood north of Miamis gleaming downtown, a group of enthusiastic but inexperienced instructors from Teach for America is trying to make progress where more veteran teachers have had difficulty: raising students reading and math scores. These are the lowest performing schools, so we need the strongest performing teachers, said Julian Davenport, an assistant principal at Holmes Elementary, where three-fifths of the staff this year are Teach for America corps members or graduates of the program. By 2015, with the help of a $50 million federal grant, Teach for America recruits could make up one-quarter of all new teachers in 60 of the nations highest need school districts. The program also is expanding internationally. The expansion comes as many districts are trying to make teachers more effective. But Teach for America has had mixed results. Its teachers perform about as well as other novice instructors, who tend to be less successful than their more experienced colleagues. Even when they do slightly better, the majority are out of the teaching profession within five years. I think ultimately the jury is out, said Tony Wagner, a professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and an instructor to the first class of TFA corps members. They provide an important pipeline of new teachers. But critics cite the teachers high turnover rate, limited training and inexperience and say they are perpetuating the same inequalities that Teach for America has set to eradicate. Theres no question that theyve brought a huge number of really talented people in to the education profession, said Kati Haycock, president of The Education Trust, which advocates on behalf of low-income and minority children, and a longtime supporter of TFA.

Its what all teachers hope to do for their students, and its what some new technology is providing for children at Inverness Middle School. At the end of the last school year, faculty and staff voted to use a portion of their school-recognition, A-plus dollars to purchase 22 iPad 2 tablets, IMS Principal Trish Douglas said. We wanted to use technology to enhance the curriculum, she said. The school spent about $20,000 on the units and related equipment, according to Douglas. Each iPad 2 is an Internet-based, handheld, wireless mini computer commonly called a tablet. Theyre one of the hottest pieces of hardware on the market today. Students in Kathy Androskis seventh-grade geography class have become big fans of the small, high-tech gadgets. She says technology is an important resource to help students learn. As a teacher, technology is vital because it helps to develop students skills, their real-world skills. As an adult, theyre going to use technology in most of the jobs they will pursue, she said. I also feel its important because it helps them to create instead of just regurgitate information. They begin to own what they are learning. Like all seventh graders at the school, Androskis class is planning a fictional Euro-trip. Students in other classes will utilize more conventional equipment to complete their project. Internet research is done from the tablets to create the projects, which require students plan the details of their trip from start to finish, working out every facet of the trip. Each student has been given a $5,000 budget for their excursion.

But, she said, Nobody should teach in a high poverty school without having already demonstrated that they are a fabulous teacher. For poor kids, education has to work every single year. Over the past 20 years, the program has sent thousands of recent college graduates to teach for two years in some of the most challenging classrooms. Applications to the program have doubled since 2008. Foundations have donated tens of millions. When we started this 20 years ago, the prevailing notion backed up by all the research was socio-economic circumstances determine educational outcomes, founder Wendy Kopp said in an interview with The Associated Press. Weve seen real evidence it does not have to be that way. Yet, for example, just 18 percent of low-income eighth-grade students scored as proficient or above in reading on the 2011 National Assessment of Educational Progress. Increasingly, the question of how to overcome the challenges of poverty is focusing on effective teaching. But such teachers are hard to find at the least advantaged schools The reality, particularly in urban centers in America, is they arent there, said Tim Knowles, director of the Urban Education Institute at the University of Chicago, who served as the founding director for Teach for America in New York City. A Harvard study of students in Texas found a teachers level of education, experience, and scores on licensing exams have a bigger influence on how well students perform than any other factor. North Carolina research on teacher training programs, including Teach for America, found that elementary students taught math by a first-year teacher lose the equivalent of 21 days of schooling compared with students who had teachers with four years of experience. If inexperienced teachers dont perform as well, then why pair them to teach students who struggle the most? When they started, we were staffing our high poverty schools ... with anything that breathed, said Haycock. But, she added, Saying their solution is better than what came before it is not to say its the right thing. Wagner noted that his masters degree in teaching from Harvard hardly prepared him for the challenges of being a first-year teacher. Unless and until we have a dramatically different system, and a universally high quality system for preparing teachers, I think TFA is a stopgap, and an important one, he said. Teach for America training starts with thick packages of readings and then five weeks co-teaching a summer class, usually in an urban school district, with students who have already fallen far behind and are taking remedial coursework in order to advance to the next grade. The fledgling teachers are overseen by another instructor. That could be a more veteran public school teacher, or current or former Teach for America corps member, some of whom only have two or three years of experience themselves. Corps members describe it as a boot camp for teachers. It was a real steep learning curve, said Sarahi Constantine Padilla, a recent Stanford University graduate teaching at Holmes. When the summer is over, teachers are sent to their assigned districts, which pay up to $5,000 to Teach for America for each corps member they hire, in addition to the teachers salary. Many dont find out their school or subject until shortly before school begins. In interviews with nearly two dozen Teach for America corps members, many described triumphs in the classroom. Several also acknowledged feeling dubious about their abilities as firstyear teachers. I struggled personally with my ability to be effective, and I think the gains my kids achieved were largely in spite of me, said Brett Barley, who taught fourth-graders in the San Francisco Bay area. I thought the key thing I was able to bring to them was communicating the urgency of the predicament they faced and having them buy in to the idea they could be successful. Most of his class entered reading and writing at the second-grade level. About 30 percent werent native English speakers; two were classified as blind. The biggest challenge was trying to learn on the job to meet all the kids at their different skill levels, he said. Teach for America, in its own review of external research, concludes its teachers achieve student gains that are at least as great as that of other new teachers. It also gathers information on how its teachers are performing, but does not release the data. One consistent finding, however, is Teach for Americas high turnover rate. According to the organization, 33 percent of its graduates are still teaching. But in many districts, those retention rates are significantly lower. A North Carolina study last year, for example, found that after five years, 7 percent of Teach for America corps members were still teaching in the state. Kopp and others at Teach for America note turnover rates are high across low-income schools. She said the main reason Teach for America teachers leave the classroom is because they want to have a bigger impact. Sixty percent of program graduates are still working in education, whether its in policy, or for a nonprofit or government agency, according to TFA. Throughout their time with Teach for America, corps members are frequently told about the organizations theory of change. Its the idea that, no matter what field they ultimately go in to, they will remain committed to fixing educational inequalities. Megan Hopkins, who was a TFA bilingual teacher in Phoenix, eventually went on to earn a doctorate in education and has focused much of her research on English language learners. She called Teach for Americas theory of change decent. But what if their theory of change would encourage their teachers to stay in the classroom as a form of change, as a form of leadership in the field of education? she asked.

Androski says that she and her students have utilized laptop computers for quite some time, but the iPad 2 has a laptop beat hands down because of its advanced capabilities. Ive used laptops in the classroom extensively, but the iPads have the wow factor so it gets their attention, she said. The iMovie application on these things is great. On the tablets there are so many more tools to allow students to be creative. They are more interested and engaged, and they get very engrossed in what they are doing. The class gets very, very quiet. The tablets are checked out by teachers when they are using them in the classroom and returned at the end of each school day. The students do not take the units home. Stepping out of the classroom after observing Androskis students using their gadgets, Douglas observed some things she said she was impressed with. The students are engaged. They are on topic. They are talking about what work they are working on with their project, she said. Whereas, at times, when theyre using a textbook doing research independently, they may not be as focused, not paying attention, and many times their conversations are not about what theyre learning about. If you watch the students use the iPads you can see its relevant to them. They are having fun learning. Jim Kelly, district technology specialist, was on hand in Androskis class to offer assistance and said most students have little problem adapting to new technology. You can see how engaged these kids are. Theyre actively learning, he said. They are helping one another out and that takes a lot of pressure off the teacher. The teacher sets the expectation and the kids are able to navigate through these programs with little or no effort, really. In turn, they show each other what theyve learned and, at times, they show us. We all benefit from it. Seventh-grader Garrett Bogart paused from his work and said learning is different on the device versus traditional study tools. I think theyre easier to learn on these because you can remember it more. Its fun to work on. And youre learning while youre having fun. Classmate Marissa Verdone agreed. I think theyre pretty cool for learning, she said. I do learn a lot more on the iPad than if Im taking notes or using a textbook. Androski says the students have provided helpful input on specific applications that fulfill certain needs on their projects as well, and also offered suggestions on apps that are not needed. The teacher says she also sees the need to help students stay connected. She believes, in turn, that will keep them excited about their class work. I think the wave of the future is utilizing what works best with the students to get them connected. They are connected everywhere but school for the most part, she said. When they use this equipment, they are really engaged and excited about what they are doing. So that part I love to see.

The cumulative effect of all those shots has not been studied enough, some parents say. Many of the vaccines are unnecessary, and public health officials dont honestly know the effects of giving so many vaccines to such small children, said Jennifer Margulis, a mother of four and parenting book author in Ashland, Ore., a small liberal community that has unusually high vaccination exemption rates. But few serious problems have turned up over years of vaccinations, and several studies have shown no link between vaccines and autism, a theory from the 1990s that has been widely discredited. To be sure, childhood vaccination rates remain high overall, at 90 percent or better for several vaccines, including those for polio, measles, hepatitis B and chickenpox. In many states, exemptions are filed for fewer than 1 percent of children entering school for the first time. Health officials have not identified an exemption threshold that would likely lead to outbreaks. But they worry when some states have exemption rates climbing beyond 5 percent. The average state exemption rate has been estimated at less than half that. Even more troubling are pockets in some states where exemption rates are much higher. In some rural counties in northeast Washington, for example, vaccination exemption rates in recent years have been above 20 percent and even as high as 50 percent. Vaccine refusers tend to cluster, said Saad Omer, an Emory University epidemiologist who has done extensive research on the issue. Parents who let their kids skip some vaccines put others at risk, health officials say. Because no vaccine is completely effective, if an outbreak begins in an unvaccinated group of children, a vaccinated child may still be at some risk of getting sick. Studies have found that measles has suddenly reemerged in some communities with higher exemption rates. Vaccinated kids are sometimes among the cases, or children too young to be vaccinated. And measles isnt the only risk. Last year, California had more than 2,100 whooping cough cases, and 10 infants died. Only one had received a first dose of vaccine. Your childs risk of getting disease depends on what your neighbors do, Omer said. While it seems unlikely that diseases like polio and diphtheria could make a comeback in the U.S., immunization expert Dr. Lance Rodewald says its not impossible. Polio can come back. China was polio-free for two decades, and just this year, they were infected from Pakistan. And there is a big outbreak of polio in China now. The same could happen here, Rodewald, of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in an email. SHOTS Continued from Page C1 Asssociated Press Michele Pereira sits with her daughters, Evangeline, 6, right, and Genevieve, 2, recently at a park in Ashland, Ore. A registered nurse, Pereira is among the growing number of parents questioning the governments schedule of mandatory vaccinations for children. Associated PressATLANTA Most people dont think about polio and diphtheria these days because those diseases have been stamped out in the United States, largely because of vaccines. But a growing number of parents are seeking exemptions so their children dont have to get those vaccinations and others required by most states for kids to attend school. Heres a rundown of the diseases the most commonly required vaccines help prevent: Polio, a paralyzing, sometimes deadly disease once seen in terrifying outbreaks, now only occurring in a few developing countries. Measles, a once-common illness that causes a rash and in rare cases can be fatal. In recent years, fewer than 100 cases were seen, but that number has at least doubled this year in the U.S. Mumps, a usually mild disease known for swelling the salivary glands, sometimes leading to more severe complications like deafness or miscarriage. Nearly 2,500 cases were reported last year. Rubella, or German measles, causes a rash but can trigger birth defects if acquired by a pregnant woman. Only a handful of cases are reported in the U.S. each year. Pertussis, or whooping cough, a highly contagious disease that can cause violent coughing in children. Nearly 20,000 cases were reported in 2010, an unusually bad year with several infant deaths. Tetanus, or lockjaw, can cause tightening of the muscles that prevents a victim from swallowing. Only a couple of dozen cases have been seen in the U.S. in recent years. Diphtheria, a bacterial illness that can lead to neck swelling and even death. Kids are at the greatest risk, but no confirmed case has been reported in the U.S. since 2003. Hepatitis B, a viral infection that attacks the liver and can lead to liver failure or death. About 2,700 cases were reported last year.
