MONDAYHIGH 80 LOW 53 Partly cloudy. East winds 5 to 10 mph. PAGE A4 TODAY & Tuesday morning Public input sought on springs plan A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER The conceptual plan to transform Three Sisters Springs into a public-accessible nature enclave will be the topic of a public input workshop 6 p.m. Tuesday at Crystal River City Hall, 123 N.W. U.S. 19. The plan has stoked controversy among some of the homeowners who live on the banks of the canals bordering Three Sisters and the greater Kings Bay area. Andy Houston, Crystal River city manager, said the meeting is to give residents a chance to appropriately discuss concerns and perhaps come up with alternatives to things they dont like. Houston said Michael Lusk, the Crystal River Wildlife Refuge manager, has been invited to make a presentation. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service via Lusk are charged with managing the property as per a public/private purchase agreement when it was bought from a Tampa developer. The management deal struck at the time also involved certain mandates about how the property was to be developed. But Houston said some of those mandates can be changed if those who oppose elements of the plan can present convincing See SPRINGS / Page A5 SOURCE: U.S. Postal ServiceAPPostal woes grow as volume sinks Steep operating losses from increased online competition and high overhead costs are leading the cash-strapped U.S. Postal Service to cut spending to avert bankruptcy.

The estimated $3 billion in reductions, to be announced in broader detail Monday, are part of a wideranging effort by the cashstrapped Postal Service to quickly trim costs, seeing no immediate help from Congress. The changes would provide short-term relief, but ultimately could prove counterproductive, pushing more of Americas business onto the Internet. They could slow everything from check payments to Netflixs DVDs-by-mail, add costs to mail-order prescription drugs, and threaten the existence of newspapers and time-sensitive magazines delivered by postal carrier to far-flung suburban and rural communities. That birthday card mailed first-class to Mom also could arrive a day or two late, if people dont plan ahead. Its a potentially major change, but I dont think consumers are focused on it and it wont register until the service goes away, said Jim Corridore, analyst with S&P Capital IQ, who tracks the shipping industry. Over time, to the extent the customer service experience gets worse, it will only increase the shift away from mail to alternatives. Theres almost nothing you cant do online that you can do by mail. The cuts, now being finalized, would close roughly 250 of the nearly 500 mail processing centers across the country as early as next March. Because the consolidations typically would lengthen the distance mail travels from post office to processing center, the agency also would lower delivery standards for firstclass mail that have been in place since 1971. Currently, first-class mail is supposed to be delivered to homes and businesses within the continental U.S. in one day to three days. That will lengthen to two days to three days, meaning mailers no longer could expect next-day delivery in surrounding communities. Periodicals could take between two days and nine days.

The office will be in Suite 228 on the second floor and will have its computers installed next week. The phone lines are now in operation and can be reached at (352) 527-5795, (352) 527-5796 and fax line, (352) 527-5797. The office will be manned by Administrative Assistant Nancy H. Smith, who is a certified planner and who has worked with the authority on regional water conservation projects. The county is giving the authority office space for $170 a month, the cost of the electric and maintenance. The move from the Southwest Florida Water Management District head quarters in Hernando County also means the water authority board will now conduct its monthly meetings in Room 166 in the Lecanto Government Building. The authority meets at 4:30 p.m. the third Wednesday of the month. Although the phones are working, Smith said Friday, because she still will be moving in next week, calls may go to voice mail or be forwarded. She said she will check for messages daily, however, and will return any calls she isnt able to answer.

The chorale, which is under the direction of Matthew Bumbach, performed a Lords and Dukes recital that combined music from the Franz Haydens Lord Nelson Mass and Duke Ellingtons songs from his Sacred Concerts series. The choral is the oldest community chorus in Marion County. Bishop Jim Adams, head pastor at the church, said this was the second time the chorale has performed at the church. The last time they sang, it was just wonderful, he said. Adams said the choral is made up of about 50 members who are all volunteers. In this concert, he said the group featured four talented soloists, Dale Brumfield, bass-baritone; Geoff Gartner, tenor and Janet Rabe-Meyer and Karen Adair, both sopranos. Wed just like to thank them for giving their talent and sharing it with everyone, he added. Natalie Warrick, church member and usher, had the same sentiments about the chorale. I think its amazing that we have this fine thing in our area, she said. I especially enjoyed the base soloist, Dale Brumfield, exceptional. Jean Welman, also a church member, said the concert was lovely, inspiring and uplifting, like the angels. Adams said the church tries to have about eight concerts a year. Shows are free and made possible in conjunction with the Florida Humanities Council. For more information on upcoming concerts, call the church at (352) 527-0052 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.Chronicle reporter Cathy Kapulka can be reached at (352) 564-2922 or ckapulka@chronicle online.com.

S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 MONDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE C ATHYK APULKA Staff WriterProgress steadily moves forward on the construction of the new Walmart on the southeast corner of West Cardinal Street and U.S. 19 South in Homosassa. Theyre a little more than halfway completed, Tina Gilson, senior non-residential coordinator for the Citrus Board of County Commissioners building division, said about the new project as she looked at the building inspections record. She said the companys building permit was issued July 20, and she hopes to go on a construction site visit in the near future. I just like to go out to the sites because I permitted them, she said. I like to wait until theyre far enough along because its crazy out there. Theyre moving along, and theyre working with our inspectors wonderfully. Gilson also talked about a proposed Walmart on the southwest corner of County Road 491 and County Road 486 in Lecanto. She said a building permit has not been issued for that location and is under review.Chronicle reporter Cathy Kapulka can be reached at (352) 564-2922 or ckapulka@ chronicleonline.com. New Walmart takes shape in Homosassa Store halfway completed CATHY KAPULKA /Chronicle Construction on the new Homosassa Walmart continues as trucks and heavy equipment fill the site at 6885 U.S. 19 South. HOLDER I had quite a few of my coworkers flummoxed when I offered the topic of my monthly installment of Off The Beaten Path a bowling alley in Holder. Yes, Holder has a 12-lane facility that has been there for nearly three decades and can lay claim to the cleanest restrooms in this county for sure and hold its own in the state. Matter of fact, Parkview Lanes, which sits about a one-quarter mile north of the traffic signal at the intersection of U.S. 41 and County Road 491, can crow about being on a distinguished list of Florida businesses that had zero violations during inspections in the past year. During the latest inspections and within the past year, Division of Hotels and Restaurants inspectors did not find any sanitation or safety violations in a list of establishments including Citrus Countys very own Parkview Lanes. Owner C.H. Crockett proudly stepped into the female restroom where we were greeted with sweet scents of a potpourri of fragrances. The light pink sinks sparkled and every decorative accent added a touch of home. I found out that women really like clean restrooms and that is something we have tried really hard to deliver, Crockett said with a smile. The mens restroom also was clean and had a colorful luster with a male imprint. Since purchasing the business in 1992, the retiree from Tennessee has totally transformed it. He has replaced the wooden lanes that tended to get lumpy over time; brought in new pin machines; repainted the entire building; redid the floors; employed the newest technology; and added new business pep to the operation. Crockett added what he calls the coffee club. For an $8.50 entry fee, club members can come every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning to have coffee with their friends, eat doughnuts and get paid to bowl. Yes, we give them coins to bowl, but you see that helps bring a lot of people in and they end up joining one of our leagues, he said. Parkview Lanes has 10 leagues that play in 12-week cycles. Come New Years Eve, said Crocketts longtime friend, decorator and all-around helper Marilyn Seymour, is when the real bash happens. The party begins at 5 p.m. with barbecue, deep-fried turkey and a bottle of champagne. Because a lot of our customers are older, they tend to go to bed early. So, by 9 or 9:30 it is all over, but everybody goes home happy, Seymour said. She said while New York City has the dropping of ball, in Holder they have the lowering of the bowling ball. That is when C.H. gets on a perch and slowly lowers a bowling ball to conclude the evenings festivities. For the man mostly known to his customers as C.H. and who thought he could buy a bowling alley and kick back and enjoy, he said its been harder than he figured, but ultimately he loves people and is having a wonderful time. We even adopted the phrase from that television show Cheers, you know, where everybody knows your name. We truly are that place, Crockett said with a laugh. There are probably 1,100 people who go through leagues play here in a year and I make it a point to try to know all their names. If I dont, I will wait til their name comes on the screen and I will cheat and look.Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at (352) 564-2925 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sidibe OFF THE BEATEN PATH Hog hunts to begin Tuesday Special to the ChronicleA portion of the Southwest Florida Water Management Districts Flying Eagle Preserve will be temporarily closed to the public for hog hunts Dec. 6 through Dec. 8. Only the northeastern section of the preserve, formerly known as the McGregor Smith Scout Reservation, will be closed. Only permitted hunters will be allowed on the property during these dates. All permits for these hunts have been sold. Flying Eagle Preserve is east of Inverness in Citrus County. Access to the northeastern section is available off State Road 44 at 12650 E. Boy Scout Road. The rest of the preserve, accessible from East Moccasin Slough Road in Inverness and East Trails End Road in Floral City, will remain at its normal operating hours. The hunt is one of a series of hog hunts held on District lands to control the damage being caused to the natural habitats. The District only allows hogs to be controlled through hunts when the damage they cause is at unacceptable levels, and damage is occurring more frequently and with increasing severity. Wild hogs live throughout Florida in various habitats, but prefer moist forests and swamps, as well as pine flatwoods. They are omnivorous and feed by rooting with their broad snouts, which can cause extensive damage to the natural habitats. In fact, they can leave an area looking like a plowed field. Wild hogs are not native to Florida and are believed to have been introduced by explorer Hernando DeSoto as early as 1539. They can weigh more than 150 pounds and travel in herds of several females and their offspring. For more information, call the Land Resources Department at the Districts Brooksville Headquarters at (800) 423-1476 or (352) 796-7211, ext. 4465.

A yes vote backed a bill that would delay voting for at least 35 days to give employers more time to attempt to persuade workers not to unionize. (HR 3094) Rich Nugent, Yes. Repeal of Post-Watergate Law: Members repealed, 235-190, a postWatergate law allowing individuals to divert $3 of their federal taxes to fund presidential campaigns. The bill also ends the Election Assistance Commission, which was set up after the 2000 BushGore vote-counting fiasco to upgrade election procedures in the U.S. A yes vote was to pass HR 3463. Nugent, Yes. Democrats' Payroll Rates: Voting 5149, senators failed to reach 60 votes for passing a Democratic bill to extend and expand this year's temporary lowering of the Social Security payroll tax. A yes vote was to pass S 1917, which would halve the rate to 3.1 percent for both employees and employers. Bill Nelson, Yes; Marco Rubio, No. GOP Payroll Rates: Senators defeated, 20-78, a GOP bill renewing the temporary law under which Social Security receives 4.2 percent of workers' pay up to $106,800, down from the standard 6.2 percent. A yes vote backed S 1931, which would pay for itself by gradually cutting the federal workforce by 10 percent and freezing civil service pay levels. Nelson, No; Rubio, Yes. 2012 Military Budget: Senators passed, 93-7, a $662 billion fiscal 2012 defense budget that provides $117 billion for war in Afghanistan and Iraq and $53 billion for military healthcare. A yes vote backed S 1867, which raises military pay by 1.6 percent and stiffens U.S. economic sanctions on Iran. Nelson, Yes; Rubio, Yes. Military Custody, Civil Liberties: Senators refused, 38-60, to strip S 1867 (above) of its requirement that terrorist suspects be held in military custody rather than assigned to the U.S. civil system of criminal justice. A yes vote opposed the requirement on grounds it goes too far by denying civil liberties to suspects who are American and arrested in the U.S. Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. 2011 Thomas Reports Inc. Call: (202) 667-9760. QUESTION: What should be the future of the U.S. Postal Service? We should ensure it remains a vital part of government, operating six days a week. 26 percent (17 votes) Saturday service should be halted and the workforce should be cut if it is to remain financially viable. 48 percent (32 votes) Government should privatize the Postal Service. 12 percent (8 votes) Do away with it. Private enterprise has demonstrated it can do the job better and at a lesser cost. 14 percent (9 votes) Total votes: 66.

region to cooperatively develop, recover, store and supply water for county or municipal purposes. There are three water supply authorities within the 16-county district, Withlacoochee in the north end of the district, one covering the Tampa Bay counties and one in the south end. The district and its former basin boards, with their taxing ability, have supplied funding for various authority projects from well-fields to water conservation projects. The three water authorities are charged with planning for and developing cost-efficient, high-quality water supplies for its member governments. The board is made up of appointed members from city councils and county commissions in the district. The authority promotes water conservation programs and in the future plans to develop alternative water sources to augment groundwater supplies to meet the regions long-term needs. The idea for the authorities is for members in the region to work together in a cost-effective way to ensure that region has enough quality water for all users. The authorities generally own or manage facilities to take water from the aquifer or surface water sources to wholesale to their member governments. The Withlacoochee Authority presently has one such facility, the Charles A Black Water Supply Facility in the middle of Citrus County with five wells that can supply 12 million gallons a day. The ultimate purpose of the system is by operating cooperatively and using authority facilities for centralized, wholesale distribution, withdrawals from isolated areas can be integrated, resulting in a regional system framework that meets supply needs and reduces adverse environmental impacts. The two other water authorities to the more urban and populated south have much more supply development infrastructures than Withlacoochee because of the demand levels and limited underground supplies, but longtime Withlacoochee Director Jack Sullivan said as changes occur in growth management and in the organization of water district, such as the demise of the basin boards, he sees the Withlacoochee playing a larger role in water supply matters in the north end of the water district. Members will need to have input with the water district on assistance with projects and funding, he said, and the authority will be the vehicle for it. Sullivan also said he expects to announce his retirement early in the New Year, and said he will be working with the new board to find a new executive director. He said the board has indicated it may want to hire the new director as a contractor rather than as an employee.

In September, officials from the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge and representatives from the architectural firm Watson, Tate, Savory, Liollio presented to the public a plan to develop Three Sisters Springs. The plan has the springs for which the 57-acre preserve is named and Lake Linda as the focal points of a landscaping scheme which attempts to keep the natural beauty of the property while trying to attract visitors to experience the manatees in their natural habitat. The plan includes trails, a road with an entrance from Culter-Spur Boulevard, three parking lots, visitor center, fishing area on Lake Linda and a possible birdwatching nook on the banks of the lake. A 1,300-foot boardwalk and viewing platforms are already being constructed at Three Sisters, which was purchased last year through the marriage of public and private money and efforts. The city of Crystal River and Southwest Florida Water Management District own the property and it is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS). Refuge officials unveiled the boardwalk on National Refuge Day (Oct.22). The water district also has plans to use the southeast corner of the property for a stormwater filtering wetland to help shield the bay and springs from the noxious stormwater runoff from businesses on U.S. 19. In October, Lusk took a group of homeowners on a private tour of the preserve and explained the plan in detail but many in the expressed concerns about everything from the location of a mooring area on Spring Run Canal to the necessity of a manatee-viewing area near the area known as the Gator Hole. Neighbors also had several queries about a proposed kayak landing/dock area in the plan. An open house event is planned from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Dec. 10, at the property.

SIDIBE /Chronicle file Crystal River Wildlife Refuge manager Michael Lusk, center, explains plans for Three Sisters Springs preserve during a tour by homeowners in October. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Southwest Florida Water Management District, and the Friends of Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge will host the second public Open House of this manatee season at Three Sisters Springs from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Dec. 10. Informational booths will be available, and guides will offer visitors walking tours of the property. Free water and portable restroom facilities will be available. Because an improved road and parking lot on the property have not yet been constructed, free shuttles to the property will be provided. Shuttles will depart from the southeast corner of the Kings Bay Shopping Plaza parking lot on U.S. 19, just north of the former Sonic fast food diner, beginning at 8 a.m. running every five to 10 minutes, with the last shuttle departing the Plaza at 11:45 a.m. Due to limited on-site parking, only mobility impaired individuals will be allowed to drive to the Three Sisters Springs property in their respective mobility impaired designated vehicles. All other visitors must use the shuttle to Three Sisters Springs. The property does not yet have established trails, so expect rough and uneven walking terrain. However, the shuttle will drop people off only a few yards from where the boardwalk begins. Fishing, swimming, or other access to the springs from the property will not be permitted during the event.

Dev Anand, 88 INDIAN FILM STAR NEW DELHI Bollywood star Dev Anand, a charismatic and flamboyant Indian film fixture for more than a halfcentury, has died of a heart attack in London, his family said Sunday. He was 88. Famed for his roles in dozens of movies, including Jewel Thief and Guide, the veteran actor, director and producer was working up to the last minute, with a new script in the works. Anand lived and died on his own terms, his nephew and renowned film director Shekhar Kapur said in a posting on Twitter. He was working one minute. Sat down and smiled. And was gone the next. So much to learn. Anand died of a heart attack Saturday night in a hotel in London, where he had gone recently for a medical checkup, the family said. Indias prime minister joined Indian film stars and officials in lauding Anands achievements and expressing sorrow for his death. Dev Anand was a great artist who entertained generations of cinema lovers over five decades, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said in a statement. He was an embodiment of long passion for acting and filmmaking. I join millions of his fans in mourning his death. Born on Sept. 26, 1923, as the son of a Punjab lawyer, Anand studied English literature and law, eventually moving in his early 20s to Indias film capital of Mumbai, then called Bombay, where he pursued a love of acting. Known for his good looks, melodious voice and success in romantic leads, Anand was considered a superstar within just a few years of his 1946 screen debut in the Hindi-language film Hum Ek Hain. Others in his family followed, with his brothers Chetan and Vijay also winning praise as film producers, screenwriters and directors. Dev Anand also began producing in 1949, and made his directorial debut in 1971 with the popular hippie cult film Hare Rama Hare Krishna. Anands family plans to cremate his body in London on Tuesday or Wednesday.

About 42 percent of firstclass mail is now delivered the following day. An additional 27 percent arrives in two days, about 31 percent in three days and less than 1 percent in four days to five days. Following the change next spring, about 51 percent of all first-class mail is expected to arrive in two days, with most of the remainder delivered in three days. The consolidation of mail processing centers is in addition to the planned closing of about 3,700 local post offices. In all, roughly 100,000 postal employees could be cut as a result of the various closures, resulting in savings of up to $6.5 billion a year. Expressing urgency to reduce costs, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said in an interview the agency has to act while waiting for Congress to grant it authority to reduce delivery to five days a week, raise stamp prices and reduce health care and other labor costs. The Postal Service, an independent agency of government, does not receive tax money, but is subject to congressional control on large aspects of its operations. The changes in first-class mail delivery can go into place without permission from Congress. After five years in the red, the post office faces imminent default this month on a $5.5 billion annual payment to the Treasury for retiree health benefits. It is projected to have a record loss of $14.1 billion next year amid steady declines in firstclass mail volume. Donahoe has said the agency must make cuts of $20 billion by 2015 to be profitable. It already has announced a 1-cent increase in firstclass mail to 45 cents beginning Jan. 22. We have a business model that is failing. You cant continue to run red ink and not make changes, Donahoe said. We know our business, and we listen to our customers. Customers are looking for affordable and consistent mail service, and they do not want us to take tax money. Separate bills that have passed House and Senate committees would give the Postal Service more authority and liquidity to stave off immediate bankruptcy. But prospects are somewhat dim for final congressional action on those bills anytime soon, especially if the measures are seen in an election year as promoting layoffs and cuts to neighborhood post offices. Technically, the Postal Service must await an advisory opinion from the independent Postal Regulatory Commission before it can begin closing local post offices and processing centers. But such opinions are nonbinding, and Donahoe is making clear the agency will proceed with reductions once the opinion is released next March. The things I have control over here at the Postal Service, we have to do, he said, describing the cuts as a necessary business decision. If we do nothing, we will have a death spiral. The Postal Service initially announced in September it was studying the possibility of closing the processing centers and published a notice in the Federal Register seeking comments. Within 30 days, the plan elicited nearly 4,400 public comments, mostly in opposition. Among them: Small-town mayors and legislators in states including Illinois, Missouri, Ohio and Pennsylvania cited the economic harm if postal offices were to close, eliminating jobs and reducing service. Small-business owners in many other states also were worried. Its kind of a lifeline, said William C. Snodgrass, who owns a USave Pharmacy in North Platte, Neb., referring to next-day firstclass delivery. His store mails hundreds of prescriptions a week to residents in mostly rural areas of the state that lack local pharmacies. If first-class delivery were lengthened to three days and Saturday mail service also were suspended, a resident might not get a shipment mailed on Wednesday until the following week. A lot of people in these communities are 65 or 70 years old, and transportation is an issue for them, said Snodgrass, who hasnt decided whether he will have to switch to a private carrier such as UPS for one-day delivery. That would mean passing along higher shipping costs to customers. Its impossible for many of my customers to drive 100 miles, especially in the winter, to get the medications they need. ESPN The Magazine and Crain Communications, which prints some 27 trade and consumer publications, said delays to first-class delivery could ruin the value of their news. Their magazines are typically printed at weeks end with mail arrival timed for weekend sports events or the Monday start of the work week. Newspapers, already struggling in the Internet age, also could suffer. No one wants to receive Tuesdays issue, containing news of Mondays events, on Wednesday, said Paul Boyle, a senior vice president of the Newspaper Association of America, which represents nearly 2,000 newspapers in the U.S. and Canada. Especially in rural areas where there might not be broadband access for Internet news, it will hurt the ability of newspapers to reach customers who pretty much rely on the printed newspaper to stay connected to their communities. AT&T, which mails approximately 55 million customer billing statements each month, wants assurances the Postal Service will widely publicize and educate the public about changes to avoid confusion over delivery that might lead to delinquent payments. The company is also concerned that after extensive cuts the Postal Service might realize it cannot meet a relaxed standard of two-tothree day delivery. Other companies standing to lose include Netflix, which offers monthly pricing plans for unlimited DVDs by mail, sent one disc or two at a time. Longer delivery times would mean fewer opportunities to receive discs each month, effectively a price increase. Netflix in recent months has been vigorously promoting its video streaming service as an alternative. DVD by mail may not last forever, but we want it to last as long as possible, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said this year. Maine Sen. Susan Collins, the top Republican on the Senate committee that oversees the post office, believes the agency is taking the wrong approach. She says service cuts will only push more consumers to online bill payment or private carriers such as UPS or FedEx, leading to lower revenue in the future. Time and time again in the face of more red ink, the Postal Service puts forward ideas that could well accelerate its death spiral, she said, urging passage of a bill that would refund nearly $7 billion the Postal Service overpaid into a federal retirement fund, encourage a restructuring of health benefits and reduce the agencys annual payments into a retiree health account. That measure would postpone a move to five-day-aweek mail delivery for at least two years and require additional layers of review before the agency closed postal branches and mail processing centers. The solution to the Postal Services financial crisis is not easy, but must involve tackling more significant expenses that do not drive customers, Collins said. In the event of a shutdown due to bankruptcy, private companies such as FedEx and UPS could handle a small portion of the material the post office moves, but they do not go everywhere. No business has shown interest in delivering letters everywhere in the country for a set rate of 44 cents or 45 cents for a first-class letter.C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, D ECEMBER 5, 2011 A7 INSIDE Crystal River Mall 7 95-148 4 Inside Walmart Hwy. 200, Ocala 291-1467 0009XUX FREE HEARING TEST Coupon Expires 12/31/11 (Limit 2 per visit) Battery Sale .89 Hearing Aid Repairs MUST PRESENT COUPON ANY MAKE OR MODEL $ 69 95 ONE WEEK ONLY 0 0 0 9 U W D of Citrus County, Inc.

O PINION Page A8 MONDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2011 Do you understand? Do you understand what I am talking about when I say that $4 out of every $10 we spend comes from China? Given some of the spending plans I see at the local, state and national levels, I have to think that most of you dont have a clue, and that includes some very high office holders who should be able to understand it. In fiscal 2012, we will spend $3.7 trillion operating the federal government. Thats a lot of money. Do you have any feel for how much a trillion really is? How many millions are in a trillion? We will take in $2.4 trillion in federal taxes, which leaves us $1.3 trillion. We will raise the $1.3 trillion that we are short by selling our debt in the form of treasury bonds on the open market. Anybody can buy the bonds but China is the largest purchaser of our debt. We could live with this if it was a one-time occurrence, but its not. We are going to be $1.3 trillion short for as far into the future as we can see. Obama and the democratic congress ran up an addition $4 trillion dollars in debt since they took office. No administration in history has ever run up so much debt so fast. Our national debt just hit $15 trillion. There is a school of socialism whose way to power is to destroy the country from within by amassing huge amounts of debt, and thats what you are seeing. How does that affect me, you might be asking? Are you for spending a large sum of money on bicycle paths in Sugarmill Woods to benefit less than a thousand people? Now that you understand that, we will borrow much of that money from China, and probably never be able to pay it back, how can you favor such a gross waste of money? We have thousands of dingbat spending schemes throughout our government and we need to root them out and kill them. Then we need to clean house this fall. Harley Lawrence Homosassa Treat others wellThe time has come to apply all we have learned from the great American democratic experiment. To consider our successes and failures. Then, for the first time in world history, make the dignity of every human being paramount in everything we do. Only then will mankind truly deserve its special place in the universe. John Sossio Dunnellon Focus on students If the Citrus County School Board members really cared about the quality of education and putting our students first, they should be raising the salaries of good teachers, not cutting their pay. We havent read where the board members plan on setting an example by lowering their own salaries or cutting the topheavy bureaucracy. The board also recently stated this years goal is to communicate better with the public, letting us know the good they are doing. How about focusing on improving the education of our future leaders, employees, scientists, teachers, etc. and encouraging their imaginations to better the world, rather than a concern for patting yourselves on the back? Get your priorities right. Patricia and Volker Knees Inverness L et the first word be one of compassion. For anyone who has a loved one missing, Godspeed the day of that persons safe return. Or failing that, Godspeed the bitter satisfaction of knowing his or her fate. To have someone you love vanish is, one imagines, a special kind of hell. That said, let the second word be one of exasperation. Another white woman has turned up missing. And, as predictably happens in such cases, television news has gone into overdrive, CNN, ABC, NBC providing breathless updates of Michelle Parkers disappearance, how she was last seen the day she appeared on The Peoples Court, suing her former fianc, who is now the prime suspect in her alleged kidnapping. This story unfolds in the wake of similar media fixations on Laci Peterson, Elizabeth Smart, JonBenet Ramsey, Jennifer Runaway Bride Wilbanks, Chandra Levy, Lori Hacking, Robyn Gardner, Natalee Holloway, all of them young, female, white, pretty and imperiled. There is, should it need saying, a naked bias in the medias obsession with white women in danger to the exclusion of pretty much every other cohort of the American demographic. If all you had to go by was NBC or CNN, youd never know that more than 335,000 men and boys went missing last year or about 230,000 African-Americans. You will rarely see coverage of them on national news. Nor, for that matter, of older people, or less attractive ones. While the effect of this bias is to deny the worth of anyone who is not a pretty young white woman, a case can be made that it does pretty young white women no favors, either. The driving force of that bias, after all, is a narrative that depicts them as damsels in perpetual distress, helpless little things under constant threat from the harsh vicissitudes of a big, mean world. With apologies to a certain Oscar-winning song, its hard out here for a white woman. Or so TV news routinely suggests. To imply it is somehow more important, more heart-rending, when a young white woman is in danger is, at best, a backhanded compliment. The implication is laced with a certain condescending paternalism that finds echoes throughout history, from assurances that women ought not to trouble their pretty little heads with voting to debates over whether they belong in the workplace. When we recall how white men once routinely lynched black ones who were thought to have cast so much as a stray glance at white women, our attention rivets, rightly, on the victims of the violence. But no one ever notes the corollary injustice: the fact that those white men felt they had an absolute, unquestioned right to police the sexuality of their women. This idea of white women as communal property, hothouse flowers in need of constant, vigilant protection, has taken different forms, then, throughout the years. In 2011, it takes the form of breathless reports on missing white women almost to the exclusion of everyone else. We should all decry this, but no one should do so more loudly than white women. It is, after all, their competence, independence and self-sufficiency that are being tacitly demeaned. Somebody should tell them: a backhanded compliment is just an insult by another name.

Haridopolis said he wasnt truthful because he believed the agreement was confidential. This isnt the first time Haridopolis ethical behavior has been called into question. Thats bad enough. But worse, hes not alone in apparently believing a position of power confers special license to bend truth, stretch ethical limits and suspend rules in service to selfish interests. Politicians do it all the time, as we have seen repeatedly, but the private sector isnt immune. Powerful corporate figures also operate with the arrogant assumption that ordinary rules dont apply to them. To all of them we say: Its not OK to lie, and its not OK to use positions of power to accrue special treatment. Taxpayers and voters are disgusted with this behavior from politicians; consumers, stockholders and stakeholders are sick of it from the private, academic and nonprofit sectors, as well. A special word to those who seek office during the upcoming elections: You are putting yourself in the public eye. If you do not have the ability to tell the truth all the time, or the strength to act ethically all the time, maybe you should reconsider. Expect to be scrutinized. Transgressions will be revealed. The bottom line is rules absolutely do apply to those in, or aspiring to be in, positions of power. Holding an office carries the obligation to act in the best interests of your constituents not yourself or your cronies. THE ISSUE: Power does not abrogate ethical responsibilities.OUR OPINION: Our opinion: Its not OK to lie. Ever.

Iran says it shot down US spy plane TEHRAN, Iran Irans armed forces have shot down an unmanned U.S. spy plane that violated Iranian airspace along the countrys eastern border, the official IRNA news agency reported Sunday. An unidentified military official quoted in the report warned of a strong and crushing response to any violations of the countrys airspace by American drone aircraft. An advanced RQ-170 unmanned American spy plane was shot down by Irans armed forces. It suffered minor damage and is now in possession of Irans armed forces, IRNA quoted the official as saying. No further details were published. The U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan said in a statement the aircraft may be an American drone that its operators lost contact with last week while it was flying a mission over neighboring western Afghanistan.

Megachurch leader Bishop Eddie Long announced Sunday hes taking time off to focus on his family after his wife filed for divorce. Longs spokesman, Art Franklin, said the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church leader told his congregation during church services that he will continue to serve as senior pastor at the church in Lithonia just outside Atlanta. But Long said he needs a sabbatical. Longs wife, Vanessa Long, filed a petition for divorce Thursday in DeKalb County Superior Court to end her 21year marriage to the embattled minister. The church sent out a press release Friday morning saying Vanessa Long planned to withdraw her petition, but her attorney said later in the day that she had changed her mind. The split comes more than a year after allegations last year that Eddie Long used his lavish lifestyle and position of spiritual authority to lure four young men into sexual relationships. Eddie Long settled the cases but has never admitted to any wrongdoing. Details of the settlements were not disclosed. New home From wire reports Nation BRIEF World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A10 MONDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressBRUSSELS Europes government-debt crisis, which has dragged on for more than two years, is entering a pivotal week, as leaders across the continent converge to prevent a collapse of the euro and a global financial panic that could result. Expectations are rising that Fridays summit of leaders of the 27 countries in the European Union will yield a breakthrough. An agreement on tighter integration of the 17 EU countries that use the euro especially on budget matters would be seen as a crucial first step. That could trigger further emergency aid from the European Central Bank, the International Monetary Fund or some combination, analysts say. The coming days will decide if the euro will survive or not, Emma Marcegaglia, the head of Italys industrial lobby, Confindustria, said Sunday. French President Nicolas Sarkozy, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, European Central Bank Chief Mario Draghi and even U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner will star in a five-day financial drama leading up to the summit. If the summit is a failure, Sarkozy warned last week, the world will not wait for Europe. Sarkozy and Merkel meet in Paris on Monday to unveil a proposal for closer political and economic ties between the 17 euro countries. While the leaders differ on some of the details, their cooperation has been so tight they have come to be known by a single name Merkozy. The two agree overall on the need for tougher, enforceable rules that would prevent governments from spending or borrowing too much and on certain penalties for persistent violators. Where we today have agreements, we need in the future to have legally binding regulations, Merkel said Friday. Merkel wants to change the basic EU treaty to reflect the tougher rules on euro countries and make them enforceable. Even if there is general agreement Friday, actually putting new rules in place through treaty changes could take more than a year. And many economists fear the new rules alone would not be enough to halt the rise in Europes borrowing costs. The hope is a firm expression of intent, however, would reassure the ECB, so it can make stronger efforts in the short term. That would give governments time to get their finances under better control and make economic reforms that would improve growth. The urgency has been heightened in recent weeks as Italy and Spain, the continents thirdand fourthlargest economies, face unsustainable high costs to finance their debts. The yield on 10-year Italian bonds is around 7 percent. Yields above that level forced Ireland, Portugal and Greece to seek bailouts. By comparison, bond yields in Germany, Europes largest and most stable economy, are roughly 2 percent. Pivotal week for Europes leaders Fate of euro could be determined this week at summit Nicolas Sarkozy French president. Angela Merkel German chancellor. Putins party losing support Associated PressMOSCOW Prime Minister Vladimir Putins party was struggling to reach 50 percent in Russias parliamentary election, polls and official results showed Sunday, suggesting Russians were wearying of the man who has dominated Russian politics for more than a decade. Rival parties and election monitors said even this figure was inflated, alleging ballotstuffing and other significant violations at the polls. Many expressed fears the vote count would be manipulated. Putin wanted to see his United Russia party do well in the election as a sign of public support for his return to the presidency in a vote now three months away one that he is still expected to win easily. Putting a positive spin on the disappointing returns, Putin said we can ensure the stable development of the country with this result, but he appeared glum and limited his remarks to two sentences. Despite the setback, he was still expected to win the March presidential election and reclaim the position he held from 2000 to 2008. Putin has systematically destroyed any potential challengers. And most Russians do not see any credible alternatives, despite growing dissatisfaction with his strongman style, pervasive official corruption and the gap between ordinary people and the superrich. United Russia held a twothirds majority in the outgoing State Duma, which allowed it to change the constitution unchallenged. But it is increasingly disliked, seen as representing a corrupt bureaucracy and known to many as the party of crooks and thieves. The Communist Party appeared to be benefiting from the protest vote, with exit polls and the early returns predicting it would get nearly 20 percent, up from less than 12 percent four years ago. United Russia struggles to get 50 percent Valdimir Putin wanted to see his party do well. Associated PressMADEIRA BEACH, Fla. Travis Palladeno, a veteran charter fishing captain on Floridas Gulf Coast, flips through his appointment book and bemoans the blank pages. Restrictions on some of the most popular and tasty sport fish are so strict right now, fewer people want to go out. The limits on such sought-after fish as grouper, red snapper and black sea bass are in place as scientists try to figure out how to restore species they say have been overfished for decades. Charter operators and recreational anglers say the rules are unreasonable and diminish an industry already dinged by higher gas prices, last years BP oil spill and the recession. Three years ago, things were rolling along so well that I was looking at spending $350,000 to have another boat built because my business was great, said Palladeno, who estimated bookings for his 45-foot vessel have been cut in half over the last year. That phone used to ring constantly, and it doesnt anymore. For Florida, where saltwater fishing is a $5.6 billion annual industry and supports an estimated 55,000 jobs, any limit on fishing hurts. But this year has been worse than ever. Fishermen on the states east coast werent allowed to bring in any red snapper for the entire year. On the Gulf side, where gag grouper is king among recreational anglers, the season was open only two months in 2011, with only two per trip allowed. They are among a litany of restrictions the government put in place in federal waters starting 9 miles out all along the southeast Atlantic and Gulf coasts. Most states fall in step with the federal regulations in their waters closer to shore. In Mississippi, where the coastal economy was also hurt by closures of parts of the Gulf to fishing after the oil spill, the restrictions are keeping many of the weekend warriors from putting their boats back in the water, said Ben Bloodworth, a longtime fisherman who lives in the Biloxi area. There is definitely an economic impact there, everything from the bait and tackle, the gas and the beer and food they take out there, said Bloodworth, who publishes a regional fishing magazine. In Florida, there is vast mistrust and bad blood among the recreational fishermen, the government and environmental groups, and the animosity over restrictions has spilled over in loud public meetings in recent years. Anglers constantly complain that what they see out on the water doesnt jibe with the science the federal government uses to close fisheries or limit the catch. Florida has nearly 2,300 miles of tidal shoreline plays host to roughly a quarter of all saltwater anglers in the country every year. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, more than 2 million people fished off the states coasts in 2006, the last year for which the agency conducted a study, racking up more than 23 million fishing days. Texas, with around 1.1 million anglers and 15.1 million fishing days, was a distant second. Restricted fishing Tougher rules hit fishermen, industry hard Associated Press Paul Jackson, of St. Petersburg, pulls in a small catch while fishing Nov. 14 off the south pier of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in St. Petersburg. Tourists are staying away from hiring fishing charters mostly because they cant catch and keep the fish they want. US: Bluefin tuna OK after BP oil spill WASHINGTON Last years BP oil spill probably wont push the troubled bluefin tuna population in the Gulf of Mexico over the edge as some scientists had worried, a federal analysis shows. Of all the potential damage from the 172-million-gallon spill in April 2010, scientists had been most concerned about how the oil spill would harm an already overfished species of large tuna. Thats because about one-fifth of the spawning habitat where the Gulfs baby tuna were living was coated with oil, according to satellite records. Tuna less than a year old are most vulnerable to pollution. An analysis by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, using two different projections from computer models, says that at most, such a spill probably would result in a 4 percent reduction in future spawning of the fish, but probably far less. Bluefish tuna is considered one of the Gulfs signature species. Associated Press Eddie Long

Nadal endured his most lopsided set defeat in the competition as Del Potro fired forehand winners at will, with the Spaniard failing to hold his first four serves to trail 1-0, 40-0 by the second game of the second set. But Del Potro started misfiring and Nadal found his rhythm to break back before finally holding serve. Nadal caught Del Potro out with one of 35 winners to take the second set and cruise through the third set on course for the win. Spains players swarmed their teammate after he had dropped to the ground in celebration. Today is one of the most emotional days of my career, said Nadal, a 10-time major champion who won the title for the third time of his career. After such a difficult year, this was a spectacular finale to the season. To win a final this way is very special. Nadal stretched his record on clay to 16-0 as Spain won its third title in four years. Associated Press Former soccer player Socrates poses for pictures May 18 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Associated Press Spains Rafael Nadal celebrates Sunday after beating Juan Martin del Potro and winning the Davis Cup Final for Spain in Seville. Former Brazilian soccer great Socrates diesSAO PAULO Former Brazil great Socrates, the clever playmaker who captained Brazil at the 1982 World Cup, died Sunday. He was 57. Known for his elegant style on the field and his deep involvement with Brazilian politics, Socrates died of septic shock resulting from an intestinal infection, according to a statement by the Albert Einstein hospital. He became a doctor after retiring from football and later became a popular TV commentator and columnist, always with unique and controversial opinions. He never denied his fondness for drinking, from the time he was a player until his final days. With Brazilian club Corinthians, Socrates spearheaded a movement called the Corinthians Democracy, in which players protested long periods of confinement required by the club before matches. It quickly becamea broader protest that coincidedwith Brazils fight to overturn a military regime in the 1980s. Socrates, whose full name is Socrates Brasileiro Sampaio de Souza Vieira de Oliveira, was included in FIFAs list of the best 125 living footballers in the world, a list compiled by countryman Pele. Socrates played 63 matches with the national team, scoring 25 goals. He was known for his great vision on the field. Always clever with the ball on his feet, his trademark move was a back-heel pass, and he set up and scored many goals with it throughout his career.From wire reports Associated PressPlay it again, LSU and Alabama. The Crimson Tide edged out Oklahoma State in the final round of voting and will play the top-ranked Tigers in the BCS national championship game Jan. 9 in New Orleans. Its not exactly a rematch the public was clamoring for at least outside of Southeastern Conference territory. And it certainly will do nothing to quiet the critics of the Bowl Championship Series or the calls for a college football playoff. But like it or not, the BCS has ensured that the SEC home to both schools will run its streak of national championships to six in a row. The Cowboys made a late surge by beating Oklahoma 44-10 on Saturday night, and closed the gap between themselves and Alabama in the polls. But it was not enough to avoid the first title game rematch in the 14-year history of the BCS. The Tigers (13-0) beat the Tide 9-6 in overtime on Nov. 5 in Tuscaloosa. Alabama (11-1) finished second in both the Harris and coaches polls by a wide enough margin to make up for the fact that Oklahoma State was ahead in the computer ratings. The Cowboys (11-1), champions of the Big 12, will play in the Fiesta Bowl.

Associated PressTHOUSAND OAKS, Calif. Two years after his life and career came crashing down, Tiger Woods is a winner again. One shot behind with two holes to play, Woods finally looked like the player who dominated golf for so much of his career. He birdied his last two holes Sunday, making a 6-foot putt on the 18th, to win the Chevron World Challenge by one shot over former Masters champion Zach Johnson. Woods closed with a 3under 69, sweeping his arm when the final putt dropped, then slamming down his fist in a celebration that was a long time coming. It had been 749 days and 26 official tournaments since he last won on Nov. 15, 2009, at the Australian Masters, back when he looked as though he would rule golf as long as he played. But he crashed his car into a fire hydrant outside his Florida home on Thanksgiving night, and shocking revelations of extramarital affairs began to emerge, which eventually led to a divorce. Since then, he has changed swing coaches and endured more injuries, missing two majors this summer and missing the cut in another. Now it looks clear Woods is on an upward path. This was his 83rd win worldwide, and the fifth time he has captured the Chevron World Challenge, which he hosts for his foundation. Woods finished at 10-under 278 and donated the $1.2 million to his foundation.

Cowboys rout of Sooners not enough to put them over Crimson Tide in rankings Associated PressEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. The Green Bay Packers are still perfect and heading to the playoffs. Aaron Rodgers engineered a last minute drive to set up a 30-yard field goal by Mason Crosby on the final play and the Green Bay Packers remained undefeated and clinched a playoff berth with a 38-35 victory over the New York Giants Sunday. Rodgers hit three passes of more than 18 yards on the drive in the final 58 seconds as the Super Bowl champion Packers (12-0) won their 18th straight game and handed the Giants (6-6) their fourth straight loss. New York, which was blown out by New Orleans Monday night, tied the game on a 2-yard Eli Manning touchdown pass and a 2-point conversion run by D.J. Ware with just under a minute to play. However, Rodgers, who threw four touchdown passes, wasnt going to settle for overtime after a touchback on the ensuing kickoff. On first down, he completed a pass to Jermichael Finley just over the outstretched hands of rookie linebacker Jacquian Williams and the tight end rumbled 24 yards up the right sideline to the 44. A 24-yard pass to Jordy Nelson down the left sideline moved the ball to the New York 29 and an 18yard pass to Greg Jennings two plays later moved the ball to the 12. Green Bay called time out with 3 seconds to go, and then Crosby delivered his winning kick. The Packers would clinch the NFC North if Detroit lost to New Orleans on Sunday night. For the Giants, everything wasnt terrible. Dallas also lost, leaving New York a game behind the Cowboys with four games to go. The two teams will play twice over that span. Rodgers, who was harassed by Giants front and sacked three times, finished 28 of 46 for 369 yards. He threw touchdown passes of 7 and 13 yards to Donald Driver, 20 to Jennings and 12 to Finley. Linebacker Clay Matthews also returned an interception 38 yards for a score in the second quarter.

He also had a 27-yard reception to set up Jonathan Stewarts firstquarter TD and threw a 19yard TD pass to Legedu Naanee to finish one of Carolinas three scoring drives of 80-plus yards. The Panthers (4-8), who drafted Newton No. 1 overall, doubled their victory total for last season. Tampa Bay (4-8), which played in throwback jerseys and helmets bearing the logo of a winking pirate, has lost six straight and seven of eight following a 3-1 start. The Bucs played without quarterback Josh Freeman, who sat out with an injury to his throwing shoulder. Newton completed 12 of 21 passes for 204 yards and no interceptions. He added 54 yards rushing on 14 carries, teaming with Stewart (14 attempts, 80 yards) to help Carolina gain 163 on the ground. Newton nearly scored on a 27-yard reception after throwing backward to Naanee on the far side of the field and taking a throw-back to the left. yards. He had a 67-yard touchdown pass to Travis Beckum and touchdown tosses of 4 and 2 yards to Nicks. Brandon Jacobs scored on a 1-yard run after a rare interception of Rodgers and Lawrence Tynes kicked two field goals with a 50-yard in the fourth quarter getting New York within 28-27. Rodgers hooked up with Driver on a 7-yard TD with 3:34 to go to push the lead to 35-27. However, Manning hit tight end Jake Ballard on two 15 yard passes and connected with Victor Cruz for 22 yards to set up the game-tying score that New York thought would send the game to OT. Rodgers had other ideas, though, and the Packers continued their run at trying to match Miamis perfect season in 1972. Its not surprising New York gave them a game. The Giants ended the Denver Broncos perfect season at 11 games in 1998 and they knocked off the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl in February 2008 when Tom Brady and company were a game from perfection.

Associated Press Minnesota Vikings Jared Allen loses his helmet Sunday while being blocked by Ryan Clady as Tim Tebow runs during the second half in Minneapolis. Associated PressMINNEAPOLIS Tim Tebow led yet another late rally, passing for a season-best 202 yards and two thirdquarter touchdowns to help the Denver Broncos win their fifth straight game. Matt Prater kicked two field goals in the final 93 seconds for the Broncos (7-5), who moved into a first-place tie in the AFC West with a loss by the Oakland Raiders. Christian Ponder set Minnesotas single-game rookie record with 381 yards passing, including a pair of touchdowns to Percy Harvin, but his sideline throw with 1:33 remaining was intercepted by Andre Goodman to set up the winner. Harvin had a career-high 156 yards for the Vikings (2-10), who lost their fourth in a row. Demaryius Thomas caught four passes for 144 yards and both touchdowns for the Broncos, who raised their record to 6-1 since Tebow took over for Kyle Orton as the starter. Tebow completed 10 of 15 passes.Steelers 35, Bengals 7 PITTSBURGH Ben Roethlisberger passed for two touchdowns and set a team record for career completions against error-prone Cincinnati. Pittsburgh (9-3) swept the season series from Cincinnati (7-5) for the second straight year behind a 28-point explosion in the second quarter fueled by Roethlisberger, running back Rashard Mendenhall and a 60-yard punt return for a score by Antonio Brown. Mendenhall and wide receiver Mike Wallace scored two touchdowns for the Steelers, who won for the seventh time in their last eight games. Cincinnati rookie quarterback Andy Dalton threw for 124 yards and a touchdown to A.J. Green but the Bengals couldnt overcome two turnovers and a handful of special team gaffes to all but end their hopes of winning the AFC North.Cardinals 19, Cowboys 13 (OT)GLENDALE, Ariz. LaRod StephensHowling caught a short pass from Kevin Kolb and zipped 52 yards for a touchdown in overtime, snapping the Cowboys four-game winning streak. It marked the third time since 2008 that the Cowboys have lost in Arizona in excruciating fashion. Stephens-Howling dodged a host of would-be Cowboys tacklers to scamper in with the score. Kolb completed 16 of 25 for 247 yards in his first game in five weeks. Tony Romo was 28 for 42 for 299 yards for the Cowboys. Dan Bailey missed a 49-yard field goal at the end of regulation that would have won it for Dallas. He also missed a 53yarder. The rookie kicker came into the game with one miss all season. Texans 17, Falcons 10HOUSTON Rookie T.J. Yates threw a touchdown pass in his first NFL start, Arian Foster rushed for 111 yards and Houston overcame another hamstring injury to Andre Johnson. The Texans (9-3) have won a franchiserecord six straight games, a remarkable feat considering theyre down to their thirdstring quarterback and have played the bulk of their streak without their star receiver. Johnson left in the third quarter after hurting his left hamstring. He injured his right hamstring in Week 4 and sat out six games. The Falcons (7-5) sputtered offensively much of the day and lost for the second time in seven games. Houstons topranked defense knocked down two Matt Ryan passes in the end zone in the closing seconds. 49ers 26, Rams 0 SAN FRANCISCO Frank Gore ran San Francisco right into the playoffs, becoming the 49ers career rushing leader in a shutout that wrapped up the franchises first NFC West crown and postseason berth since 2002. Alex Smith threw second-half touchdowns of 52 and 56 yards to Michael Crabtree and Kyle Williams and David Akers kicked four field goals for San Francisco (10-2) as coach Jim Harbaugh joined George Seifert (1989) and Steve Mariucci (1997) as the only rookie coaches in 49ers history to win the division. The only downer came when star linebacker Patrick Willis left the game in the first half with a right hamstring injury. Rams quarterback A.J. Feeley struggled in place of injured starter Sam Bradford for the reeling Rams (2-10). Patriots 31, Colts 24 FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Rob Gronkowski caught two touchdown passes then scored on a lateral and New England withstood a fourth-quarter rally to keep Indianapolis winless. Trailing 31-3, the Colts rallied with a touchdown run by Donald Brown and two scoring passes from Dan Orlovsky to Pierre Garcon, the last a 40-yarder with 36 seconds to go. But Deion Branch recovered the onside kick and Tom Brady took a knee on the final play. The Patriots (9-3) posted their fourth straight win. The Colts (0-12) must beat Baltimore, Tennessee, Houstonor Jacksonville to avoid a winless season. Dolphins 34, Raiders 14 MIAMI Reggie Bush rushed for 100 yards and a touchdown and Miami won for the fourth time in the past five games. Matt Moore had a hand in two TDs for Miami, and Kevin Burnett returned an interception 34 yards for a score. The surge by the Dolphins (4-8) comes after they lost their first seven games. In the past five games theyve outscored opponents 139-54, with the lone loss a onepoint defeat at Dallas on Thanksgiving. For the Raiders (7-5), who began the day leading the AFC West, the drubbing ended a three-game winning streak. They fell to 6-25 in regular-season games in the Eastern time zone since December 2002. Titans 23, Bills 17ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. Chris Johnson rushed for 153 yards and two touchdowns as Tennessee remained in the playoff chase. Johnson scored on runs of 48 and 4 yards to match his season touchdown total. It was his third 100-yard rushing game in four outings. Rob Bironas did the rest, hitting three field goals, including a 44-yarder midway through the fourth quarter to put the Titans (7-5) ahead 23-10. C.J. Spiller had a career-best 83 yards rushing and a touchdown for the Bills (57), who continue to spiral out of playoff contention after losing their fifth straight. Stevie Johnson made the game close with a 2-yard touchdown catch with 2:58 left. Chiefs 10, Bears 3 CHICAGO Tyler Palko shook off two miserable starts and threw for 157 yards and a touchdown even though he was briefly lifted for Kyle Orton. Orton came on to start the second quarter and immediately left the game with an injured finger on his right hand. Palko connected with Dexter McCluster on a wild 38-yard pass to end the first half on a ball that got deflected by Brian Urlacher and Chris Conte, giving the Chiefs a 7-3 lead and their first touchdown in three games. Kansas City (5-7) got a 21-yard field goal from Ryan Succop in the third quarter, and Jon McGraw intercepted struggling backup Caleb Hanie in the end zone in the fourth. The Chiefs also recorded seven sacks three by Justin Houston. Chicago (7-5) played most of the game without running back Matt Forter, who injured his right knee. Jets 34, Redskins 19 LANDOVER, Md. Mark Sanchez hit Santonio Holmes for a 30-yard touchdown pass with 4:49 to play, and Shonn Greene added a pair of insurance scores. It was Sanchezs 10th career fourthquarter comeback or overtime victory, and his second in as many weeks. The win improves the Jets to 7-5 and keeps them in the hunt for an AFC playoff berth. New York played another mistake-filled game and had only 168 total yards after three quarters. They trailed 16-13 after Washingtons Graham Gano made his third field goal with 7:52 remaining. The Redskins fell to 4-8. They have lost seven of eight. Ravens 24, Browns 10CLEVELAND Ray Rice rushed for a career-high 204 yards, breaking loose on a game-changing 67-yarder in the third quarter, and the Ravens kept pace with Pittsburgh atop the AFC North. Rice and Ricky Williams had short touchdown runs and Lardarius Webb returned a punt 68 yards for a TD for the Ravens (9-3), who toyed with the Browns (4-8). Baltimore racked up 290 yards rushing. The Ravens turned to Rice on a blustery, rainy day, when Joe Flacco had trouble throwing and kicker Billy Cundiff missed a pair of field goal attempts. Cleveland lost for the fifth time in six games, and the Browns have just three days to prepare for the Steelers. With the Ravens leading 10-3 in the third, Rice got loose on his longest run as a pro.

Auburn31150.0052--0.000021.1700.0584NR will be set up in the future, the 2011 season is once more exposing the flaws in the current system. Oklahoma State and Alabama, two teams with perfectly good arguments to play for a national championship, wound up fighting over one spot, with subjective voters and mysterious computer ratings the formulas of which are not even publicly known doing the choosing. Alabama, with the nations No. 1 defense, won out and will play for its second BCS crown in three years. Oklahoma State, with one of the most potent offenses in the country, gets its first BCS appearance. A rematch between LSU and Alabama in the title game seemed almost a foregone conclusion heading into conference championship weekend. But with Alabama idle, Oklahoma State made one last, dramatic statement against the Sooners on Saturday night in Stillwater. And the Cowboys had an impressive resume, beating three teams ranked in the final BCS top 15. Alabama had only one such victory. So instead of Sunday being a coronation there was drama and another BCS controversy. Working in Alabamas favor was its dominance all of the Tides victories have been by at least 16 points and the fact that no other team has challenged LSU this season. The last time a national title was decided by a rematch of a regularseason game was 1996, when Florida State beat Florida in its final regularseason game then drew the Gators again in the Sugar Bowl. Steve Spurriers Gators beat Bobby Bowdens Seminoles 52-20 to win the national championship. Bowden wasnt happy to face Florida again. If its somebody you beat, you dont want to play them, Bowden said Sunday in a phone interview. The team that won, its just hard to get your boys as inspired as the other team can get inspired. Yet as far as a rematch this year, Bowden said both teams can make a good case, and hes not opposed to giving Alabama a second chance. If thats the way it shapes up thats OK, he said. You got to get the best two teams in the country playing for the national championship. Remember, of course, that Bowden was born in Birmingham, Ala. Packers 38, Giants 35 Green Bay714710 N.Y.

BCS Continued from Page B1 Associated PressSTILLWATER, Okla. Joseph Randle ran for 151 yards and two touchdowns, Richetti Jones returned a fumble for a score and Oklahoma State throttled Oklahoma to win the Big 12 championship and make its case to play for a national title. The Cowboys (11-1, 8-1 Big 12) snapped an eightgame losing streak in the Bedlam rivalry and won their first outright conference title since 1948 in the three-team Missouri Valley. Oklahoma States defense, badmouthed much of the season while giving up big yardage but leading the nation in takeaways, forced the Sooners into five turnovers four of them by quarterback Landry Jones. Fans started chanting LS-U! midway through the fourth quarter with the victory well in hand, then stormed the field when it was over.No. 21 Clemson 38, No. 5 Virginia Tech 10CHARLOTTE, N.C. Tajh Boyd threw three touchdown passes and ran for another as Clemson routed Virginia Tech to win its first Atlantic Coast Conference championship in 20 years. The Tigers (10-3) clinched their first Orange Bowl berth since 1981, the year they won their only national championship. Clemson wont be playing for a national title this season, but the victory was still sweet considering theyd lost three of four games to close the regular season. Clemson scored three touchdowns on five plays in a span of 4:24 in the third quarter to break open a 10-10 tie at halftime. Clemson became the only team to beat Virginia Tech (112) twice in the same season. The Tigers beat the Hokies 233 in Blacksburg, Va., on Oct. 1.No. 15 Wisconsin 42, No. 11 Michigan St. 39 INDIANAPOLIS Montee Ball ran for three touchdowns including the decisive 7-yard score with 3:45 to go, leading Wisconsin to victory in the inaugural Big Ten championship game. Wisconsin (11-2) is now headed to its second straight Rose Bowl. Ball ran 27 times for 137 yards and caught a TD pass, giving him 38 touchdowns this season. Thats one short of Barry Sanders single-season record. Russell Wilson was 17 of 24 for 187 yards with three TDs and no interceptions. He set a new NCAA record with a TD pass in his 37th straight game. Texas Techs Graham Harrell had the previous mark of 36. The Big Tens first championship game made the idea of a conference title tilt seem like a good one. Michigan State (10-3) rallied from a 21-7 first-quarter deficit to take a 29-21 halftime lead and still led 39-34 after Dan Conways 25-yard field midway through the fourth quarter. But Wilson and Ball answered with a score and a 2point conversion. Associated Press Oklahoma State linebacker Tyler Johnson, right, tackles Oklahoma wide receiver Trey Franks Saturday in the second quarter in Stillwater, Okla. Cowboys dismantle Sooners Associated PressJACKSONVILLE, Fla. Urban Meyers former and future teams will play in the Gator Bowl. Florida (6-6) and Ohio State (6-6) have been chosen to meet in the Jan. 2 game in Jacksonville, a marquee matchup between once-proud programs that slipped significantly this season. Meyers hiring earlier in the week in Columbus makes the game even more intriguing. Meyer won two national titles in six years with the Gators. He left Gainesville after last season, citing health concerns and a desire to spend more time with his family, and became a college football analyst for ESPN. He walked away from the network last weekend and was officially introduced Monday. Interim coach Luke Fickell, who took over when Jim Tressel was forced out for breaking NCAA rules, will lead the Buckeyes through the bowl. Source: Penn State to Ticket City BowlSTATE COLLEGE, Pa.

Cotto unloaded so many punishing uppercuts and head shots to Antonio Margarito, the Mexican stars right eye was sealed shut. A crowd of 21,239 at Madison Square Garden gasped then roared for Cotto to continue as the squeamish scene flashed on the big screen. Cotto finished the job in front of his fellow flag-waving Puerto Ricans and retained his title, battering Margarito over nine lopsided rounds before winning a TKO decision amid confusion in the corner before they came out for the 10th on Saturday night. Three years after he took a knee in defeat, Cotto fought his heart out in the rematch. Cotto (37-2-0) earned a punishing measure of payback for his loss to Margarito three years ago. With the New York crowd going wild for Cotto, the Puerto Rican champ was never seriously threatened and retained his 154-pound title, shuttering Margaritos right eye to cause the stoppage. Cotto stared down Margarito in his corner after the bout was stopped. Just to look at him and taste my victory on him, Cotto said. He means nothing to me. Im here with all my crowd and all my people. He means nothing to me. Margarito beat Cotto in July 2008, only to later have his career and reputation tarnished when he used illegal hand wraps before a loss to Shane Mosley. Margarito didnt box again for more than a year. He needed surgery to repair a fractured orbital bone following a loss to Manny Pacquiao and considered retirement. The New York State Athletic Commission didnt license Margarito until Nov. 22 after ordering another examination of his eye. Cotto believed Margarito also used illegal hand wraps in their first fight and claimed he had the photos to prove it. Cotto said he noticed something strange, something weird in their first fight. His face swelled up in ways it shouldnt have. My face now is a lot different than last time, a smiling Cotto said. Margarito looked different, too and it wasnt just the cornrows. His eye needed 12 stitches. Margarito never wanted to quit. His corner barked at ringside doctors and begged for one more round, insisting Margarito could still go. Doctors saw it another way. Cotto took quick aim at the eye, and by the third round it was already closing. By the seventh, it was swollen shut. Margarito fought on, hoping for one brutal blow that could change the fight. Half blind, he never had a chance. Ring doctor Anthony Curreri stopped the fight after 3 seconds ticked off in the 10th round. The fighters never met in the center of the ring. Associated Press Miguel Cotto, of Puerto Rico, punches Antonio Margarito, of Mexico, on Saturday during the eighth round of an WBA World Junior Middleweight Championship match. Cotto defeated Margarito with a TKO decision amid confusion in the corner before they came out for the 10th round. Cotto pummels Margaritos eye en route to 10th-round TKO The win moved him from No. 52 to No. 21 in the world ranking, and likely will send expectations soaring for 2012. Woods will not play again until starting his year in Abu Dhabi at the end of January. Asked if the emotion was joyous, satisfying or simply relief, Woods smiled and said, It just feels awesome whatever it is. He had a worthy adversary in Johnson, who had a one-shot lead going into the final round and trailed for only three holes. Johnson tied Woods with a birdie on the par-5 13th, made an unlikely par on the 14th by chipping from the bottom of the green, and appeared to seize control by holing a 12foot birdie putt on the 16th hole. Johnson thought his birdie putt on the 17th was good all the way until it burned the edge of the cup. Woods, running out of time, drained his birdie putt to force a tie and send the tournament to the 18th. Woods also was tied on the 18th at Sherwood a year ago and stuffed his approach into 3 feet. Graeme McDowell holed a 20-foot putt to force a playoff, and beat Woods on the first extra hole. Johnson, however, missed his birdie putt from 15 feet, leaving the stage to Woods. He hasnt been in these situations much over the last two years, but this one, finally, had a familiar ending. Johnson closed with a 71 and still took home $650,000 for the holidays. Paul Casey, who opened with a 79, had his third straight round in the 60s to finish alone in third at 5 under. Tiger can have a long career, Casey said when he finished. We might look back in another 10 years and actually forget about the last couple of years. WOODS Continued from Page B1 Baylor rolls; Cal, UNLV upset Associated PressEVANSTON, Ill.

Cals Jorge Gutierrez made a layup with 9.2 seconds left before Tapley was fouled and hit both free throws to give the Aztecs a four-point lead. Allen Crabbe of the Bears (6-2) made a 3-pointer with 2.1 seconds for the final margin. The Aztecs made 9 of 10 free throws in the final 2:21. Tapley had 10 of SDSUs final 21 points.

The host of public radios A Prairie Home Companion told theSioux City Journal this week he thought about quitting the show, but it panicked him and led to him rethinking the whole brilliant idea. He said the show is going well and he loves doing it, so why quit. In March, Keillor had said in an interview for the AARP Bulletin that he planned to retire in the spring of 2013, but would have to find his replacement first. Keillors spokesman, David ONeill confirmed the report to the Star Tribune of Minneapolis, saying Keillor doesnt have any specific plans to retire and is still enjoying doing the show.Twilight stays on top for third week LOS ANGELES The latest Twilight movie cast the longest shadow with $16.9 million for a third-straight No. 1 finish during one of the years slowest weekends at the box office. Business was dismal, with box-office tracker Hollywood.com estimating Sunday that domestic revenues totaled just $82 million. That puts it barely ahead of Hollywoods worst haul of the year, when revenues were $81.5 million over the second weekend in September. Once studios release final numbers Monday, this past weekend could come in as the worst of the year if revenues finish even lower. The first weekend of December often presents a lull in between big Thanksgiving holiday releases and the onslaught of year-end blockbusters that arrive a bit later. But this big a slowdown is surprising given theres quality stuff out there among the top-10 films, particularly family fare such as The Muppets, Hugo and Arthur Christmas. Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama, in lauding the actors, musicians and others receiving Kennedy Center Honors Sunday night, also was looking for advice. Everybody likes him, Obama said of Yo-Yo Ma, one of the several artists honored. Youve got to give me some tips. Obama noted the cellist has appeared on Sesame Street and said, I thought about asking him to go talk to Congress. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton also joined in the celebration while home for less than 36 hours between diplomatic travels. Between her historic visit to Myanmar and a trip to Germany to discuss Afghanistans future, Clinton hosted a dinner Saturday for some big names from Broadway, jazz, pop, classical music and Hollywood. Ma, Barbara Cook, Neil Diamond, Sonny Rollins and Meryl Streep also were saluted by Obama and their fellow artists with tribute performances at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. After visiting the isolated Southeast Asian country also known as Burma, Clinton said such U.S. artists have worldwide influence by using their freedom of creativity and expression. You may not know it, but somewhere in a little tiny room in Burma or even in North Korea, someone is desperately trying to hear you or to see you, to experience you, Clinton told the crowd. And if they are lucky enough to make that connection, it can literally change lives and countries. Entertainers who have gathered for the event include Stephen Colbert, Kevin Kline, Tracey Ullman, Anne Hathaway and others. A surprise lineup of stars will perform as part of the nations highest honor for those who have defined American culture through the arts. CBS will broadcast the show on Dec. 27. Obama said each was receiving an award, not for a single performance but a lifetime of greatness. Just to be clear, this doesnt mean that theyre over the hill. Drawing one of the loudest laughs of the evening, Obama made passing reference to Diamonds s-era wardrobe, saying, Now, his shirts arent as flashy as they used to be. I notice youre buttoned up all the way to the top. Diamond said its a great coincidence that his work is being honored in a show hosted by Caroline Kennedy. The song Sweet Caroline is a story about he and his former wife, but the name is Kennedys, he said on the red carpet. Im going to have to thank her for that, he said. Obama said all the honorees felt the need to express themselves and share it. Thats why we dance, even if, as Michelle says, I look silly doing it, he added to laughter. In a toast to Streep on Saturday night at the State Department, writer Nora Ephron warned Clinton that the person who would someday play her on screen is the same woman who played Julia Child in Julie and Julia and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the upcoming The Iron Lady. Streep stood up for a better look at the nations top diplomat. Its inevitable, Ephron told Clinton, drawing big laughs. You met her tonight, and Im sure you thought she was charming, but she was just soaking you up. Streep, 62, has made more than 45 movies and won two Oscars in a career spanning Shakespeare to ABBA with the movie Mamma Mia! For her part, Streep said she is in awe of the accolades. Look where we are, look whos here, Streep told The Associated Press. Its overwhelming. I feel very proud. While in Washington, she has also met with women in Congress to push for a National Womens History Museum because, as youll notice, we dont have one, Streep said. Emily Blunt, a co-star from The Devil Wears Prada, said Streep is unique for her devotion to her characters, taking on parts of their personas. Its funny, I feel like when we were doing The Devil Wears Prada, she definitely adopted a certain cool on set, sort of remained very much in this reserved territory, Blunt said. And then when my husband John (Krasinski) worked with her, she was playing a very vivacious, gregarious character, so she was just a ball of fun. Lionel Richie told the AP he got into the music business because he wanted to be Diamond. Hes a great storyteller, Richie said, as with the hit single America. Hes not an acrobatic singer. Basically, he told the story in a very simple voice.

B6 M ONDAY, D ECEMBER 5, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT A common fault of inexperienced players is to grab tricks too quickly. Sometimes patience, giving away one trick that could have been won, will result in a greater number of tricks being taken by the end of the deal. Here is an example. How should South plan the play in five clubs? West leads the spade queen. The bidding did not reach the best contract of three no-trump by South. Over Souths three-club rebid, North could have continued with three spades, showing values in that suit (South denied four spades when he did not rebid one spade) and implying weakness in hearts. South would have converted to three no-trump. South has three possible losers: two hearts and one diamond. He has only 10 top tricks: two spades, two diamonds and six clubs. At first glance, declarer needs East to have the heart ace. But there is another possibility: Diamonds might break 3-3. If they do, a third diamond winner can be established. However, that must be done without letting East on lead for a heart shift through Souths king. The right play is to let West win the first trick. Suppose West persists with a second spade. Declarer takes the trick, draws trumps ending on the board, discards a diamond on the high spade, plays three rounds of diamonds, ruffing the last in his hand, and returns to dummy with a trump. When diamonds are 3-3, South cashes the 13th, pitching the heart seven from his hand. But if they break badly, declarer can still play East for the heart ace.

I went to counseling immediately, and we worked hard to get back together for the sake of our children. We eventually reconciled. While I try not to dwell on the past, something still troubles me, and Im not sure what to do about it. A few days after Janeleft me, I had a tearful phone conversation with my sisterin-law. She didnt go into specifics, but made it quite clear that Jane had not been faithful to me. At the time, I was devastated. I called my wife and asked if there was someone else. She insisted there wasnt. But my sisterin-law stands by her story. I never discussed this possible affair with my pastor or my counselor, preferring instead to focus on what I needed to do to make myself a better husband and father. While I am confident that our love is now strong, I still have lingering doubts about Janes fidelity. My sister-in-law isnt the type to make this up. After two years, should I bring up the subject or simply keep it to myself and cope as best I can? Not Sure Dear Not Sure : Keeping it to yourself wont diminish your suspicions, because this is still preying on your mind after two years. Its possible that your sister-inlaw misinterpreted something she heard or saw. But sometimes opening a can of worms is not worth the end result. Can you forgive an affair? If Jane insists she was faithful, will you believe her with your whole heart? Please discuss these questions with your pastor or counselor until you are at peace with your decision, whatever it is. Dear Annie : We moved into a lovely house on a quiet street with friendly neighbors. The problem? One couple has a large dog that barks for hours on end. Fidois kept in the fenced-in yard that faces our bedroom. Usually, he stands upright near their kitchen window, barking endlessly. When they come in after a night out, often as late as 2 a.m., the dog barks for several minutes and wakes us up. After enduring this for months, we gently told the neighbors about it. They seemed genuinely surprised, but nothing changed. The next time Fido barked for three hours, we phoned them. We were told, Hes a guard dog. Thats what they do.We asked if they would please bring Fido inside at night, but they refused. They wont bring the dog inside even in below-freezing weather. We could call the neighborhood association, but Im not sure it will help. How are we supposed to find quiet in our own home? Why are people so inconsiderate? Noisy Dog Next Door Dear Noisy : Please call the neighborhood association. Settling such disputes is part of its purpose. You also might discover that other neighbors have complained about this dog, which will strengthen your case should you decide to call the police and file a complaint. And finally, if the dog is being mistreated in the cold weather, notify your local humane society. Dear Annie : New Hampshire said that Workplace Dilemma may legally be owed overtime. If Workplacegets a salary (as opposed to an hourly wage), she may not be entitled to overtime. Also, it depends on whether the overtime is authorized by the boss. When I started a new administrative position, I was told that two staff members had been caught using overtime as a scam, so now all overtime was denied. They had been claiming the hours, even though their boss had not authorized it in advance. This suited me. If I came in early or stayed late, it was my decision.

Associated PressHARTFORD, Conn. Robert Spiegels passion for Russian literature, the New York Mets, ethnic cooking and beagles endeared him to generations of students and colleagues at Central Connecticut State University. Now, through the power of social media, the 77-yearold former English professors obituary is charming strangers, as well. Spiegel, a resident of the Hartford suburb of Berlin and a native of New York City, died Wednesday after a struggle with cardiac disease and dementia. He was eulogized in a quirky obituary written by his son that appeared Friday in central Connecticut newspapers. It quickly started spreading on strangers Facebook pages and Twitter feeds, usually accompanied by the readers admissions they did not know him but wished they had, based on the richly detailed obituary. Whereas the disease did thankfully erase most memories of the Mets season, it eventually also claimed his life, his obituary read, referring to his beloved teams 40-120 record in a year that took 10 games just to get their first win. Friends and family say the obituary and its response are a fitting coda for the life of a man who loved spurring conversation, whether it was about good writing, New York sports teams or the satisfaction of sipping a high-quality single malt Scotch whiskey. He was a very humble man, and reaching some level of postmortem fame would really please him. Im sure he would have been delighted by it, and surprised, said Kevin Lynch, a fellow English professor emeritus at Central Connecticut who worked with Spiegel for 32 years. Spiegel was a high school teacher in Brooklyn before joining Central Connecticut States faculty in 1965. He was accompanied on his move by his wife, Ursula, whom hed met on a blind date under New York Citys Washington Square arch. He quickly took on a reputation at Central Connecticut as a teacher who could leave a roomful of students entranced by anything from Dostoyevsky to the literature of baseball something his obituary called a thinly veiled therapy to alleviate the trauma he sustained from coaching arguably the worst Little League team in recorded (or unrecorded) history and from the sufferings he endured from 40 years as a devout Mets fan. Such lines in his obituary were what caught the eye of many strangers Friday, some of whom pondered in Facebook postings whether Spiegel had written the death notice himself. Though his family would have liked that, they said, the progress of his dementia made it impossible. Instead, it was written by his son, Jeff, who described himself in the obituary as someone who, if nothing else to show from his lineage, inherited his fathers sardonic sense of humor. The unusual obituary also gave readers a window into the effects of the dementia that first became evident when it stole Robert Spiegels ability to read, then continued creeping onward as caretakers helped his wife keep him in their home until his hospitalization late last week. Spiegels obituary was so untraditional that family members and the funeral home traded calls back and forth Thursday as the directors wanted to double check that yes, indeed, the Spiegels wanted it to appear exactly that way. Robert Spiegel of Kensington was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., on May 2, 1934, lived and subsequently died, the opening line reads. Most of his noteworthy accomplishments happened in said middle part. The obituary described the dayslong vigil at his hospital bed before his death amid what his son described as lively conversation against a backdrop of the music of Jimmy Buffett and Bob Marley, chicken curry and the occasional smuggled glass of Glenlivet. As his dementia progressed in recent years, Spiegel sat down one day with his wife, and they wrote a list of things to remember for his eventual memorial service: their daughter should read some Emily Dickinson poetry aloud, the dress code should be strictly casual, and they should dab his favorite Drakkar Noir cologne on his body after the traditional washing under their Jewish faith. When Ursula Spiegel got out that list again this week, she found a few words added on the back in her husbands handwriting: Glenlivet and spicy food. That single malt Scotch whiskey, spicy food and other items that invoke Spiegels personality are expected to be part of a memorial service next spring at Central Connecticut State University. The date had not been set as of Friday, and his funeral services this week were private. In addition to his wife and son, Spiegel is survived by a daughter, three grandchildren and several other family members. According to the obituary, he was also predeceased by his bevy of beagles, all eternally loyal to their benevolent master, if not lacking a tad in their own intellect. Ursula Spiegel said she and others in the family were surprised and pleased that her husbands obituary had struck a chord with strangers, and that he was bringing a smile to them even after his death.B8 M ONDAY, D ECEMBER 5, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE W EIRD W IRE Classifieds Classifieds Classifieds In Print and Online All The Time!

Eulogizing dad in quirky way Obituary endears Connecticut professor to state Weird WIRE Ohio mannequin survives drive-byREADING, Ohio BarBe Q, the scantily-clad, curvaceous mannequin that serves as the mascot of KTs Barbecue restaurant near Cincinnati, survived a drive-by shooting in November, but did not fare so well at the ballot box. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports just before election day, three bullets shattered the plate glass window in front of BarBe, narrowly missing the mannequin. She didnt fare so well on the day itself, receiving no votes in her write-in candidacy for mayor of Reading. Restaurant owner and BarBe spokesman Kenny Tessel jokingly called the shooting an assassination attempt. The mascot garnered controversy in 2009 when residents protested that her usual get-up Daisy Dukes and an under-sized halter top was too revealing. The city ultimately ruled she was a mannequin and not an indecent sign. Stolen Santa returned with $100 UNIONVILLE, Ind. A southern Indiana man has gotten an early Christmas gift: A 16-foot-tall inflatable Santa Claus stolen from his yard has been returned with $100 and a note of apology. Jason McClaren tells The Herald-Times someone returned the deflated Santa to his Unionville yard early Saturday in a trash bag that also contained the money and note. He said the anonymous note makes it clear the person who returned the Santa wasnt the thief who took it and two 6foot tall penguins this past week. The penguin decorations are still missing. The typed note states: Returning your property is the right thing to do, and apologies for the thief who took it in the first place. McClaren says he plans to use the $100 to buy more decorations. Thieves target toilet paper at diner ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. A New Mexico restaurant employee says hes now seen it all, after three men left his diner with rolls of toilet paper and were nabbed in the parking lot by police. Burgers, Dogs and Wings employee Josh FlanneryStewart told KOAT-TV in Albuquerque he was immediately suspicious of the men when they came in Saturday because they werent talking and appeared messed up. The three went into the bathroom and emerged carrying about a dozen rolls of toilet paper. They got in a car in the parking lot, but didnt get far. Albuquerque police apparently already had the trio under surveillance and surrounded the car and arrested them. Conn. town vexed trying to catch bull MILFORD, Conn. A posse hopes to soon catch Waldo, a bull that escaped from a farm in July and has been on the loose in the coastal city of Milford, Conn. The Connecticut Post reports an attempt to corral the 700-pound black Angus failed Nov. 20. In the next few weeks, officials will try again. Milford animal control officer Rick George said Waldo has been traveling and grazing with a herd of deer. Last month, volunteers put up a steel fence around Waldos hideout in Milford, but he rammed it and escaped. George said about 20 veterinarians, representatives of the state Department of Agriculture and others plan to track down Waldo in the next few weeks, trap him and move him to an animal sanctuary. From wire reports Associated Press Kenny Tessel, owner of KT's Barbecue in Reading, poses with BarBe Q, who he's dressed as a pilgrim, down to the buckles on her shoes, for Thanksgiving.
