SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Today promises a potpourri of topics for city council members. First, at the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) meeting, panel members will discuss the feasibility of developing a marina to anchor revitalization of the downtown core and then, topics ranging from a golf cart ordinance to the proposed Kings Bay rules. Officials will also tackle the loan portion of its bid to extend sewer service to county residents in the Fort Island Trail area. City Manager Andy Houston told the Chronicle editorial board Wednesday the city will begin looking at ways of redeveloping the city marina adjacent to Kings Bay Park. The area is being used mainly for manatee boat tours. Houston hopes to begin looking at various avenues to permit for boat slips and eventually tie development of the marina with businesses in the downtown core. The regular city council meeting will take up the issue of golf carts in first reading. The ordinance seeks to change the citys golf cart rules in accordance with the following rules: Golf carts may only be operated on certain designated streets. Prior to making this designation, the city has to first determine golf carts can safely travel on or across the public road or street which already began at Woodland Estates and Crystal River Village (an adjacent shopping area). Golf carts will be allowed to be operated between sunrise and sunset and only by persons who hold a valid drivers license. If operated at night, golf carts must be equipped with headlights, brake lights, turn signals and windshields.

SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER The U.S. Fish and Wildlifes revised plan for the development of Three Sisters Springs made a brief entry into the discussion last Tuesday during a workshop convened by the Crystal River City Council. It entertained a positive buzz, but Crystal River National Wild life Refuge Manager Michael Lusk figures more people need to see and study it. And, it shows that we listen to the concerns of people and will mitigate to address those concerns. I also wanted people to notice that there is going to be less concrete, Lusk said. Bob Mercer, who has been an active and vocal opponent of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service efforts to change regulations in Kings Bay, conceded at the workshop he kind of liked the revised version of the plan, though he thought the entire plan was being foisted on residents. The new plan seeks to address some of the other controversial elements of a plan derided by some as an intrusion into their private spaces and the transformation of a preserve they thought was going to be quiet into a gathering place for a riot of visitors. Lusk noted the plan there is one fewer parking lot and the visitor center at the site will be a small spot where a visitor may only interact with a ranger and go off to experience facility. The main visitor center and overflow parking area will be at an adjacent shopping plaza on U.S. 19 and a lot on Cutler-Spur Boulevard. Future visitors would be able to park at the plaza and be transported via Cutler-Spur to the preserve. The idea for offsite parking to the future visitor preserve came up during previous public meetings about the conceptual plan. The new plan, said Lusk also calls for two viewing areas in vegetation breaks near Magnolia Springs or the area commonly called the Gator Hole and the contentious location of a kayak landing. The previous plan had four viewing platforms which ran contrary to the dictates of the management. These viewing areas, I dont want to call them platforms because that sounds like they are elevated, will VISUAL INSIDE See the two concepts for the Three Sisters property. / Page A2 See PLANS / Page A2 This means freedom MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Jeanne Dexter Nally, right, hugs Cynthia Holden, judge advocate for the Citrus County Veterans Coalition, while one of a group of veterans looks on after Nally received a 2003 Ford Taurus, thanks to the fundraising efforts of local veterans organizations and the generosity of Consignment U.S.A. owner Frank Romanelli.

With help from her friends, disabled veteran gets a car N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff Writer CRYSTAL RIVER F or once in her life, Jeanne Dexter Nally was speechless. As she leaned against the silver 2003 Ford Taurus with the big red bow on the front windshield, with tears streaming down her upturned face she mouthed a silent, Thank you. Without a car for five years, the disabled Army veteran offered hugs all around to friends who had met her at Consignment U.S.A. Auto Sales & Rentals in Crystal River where she was given the keys to the Taurus, thanks to the fundraising efforts of local veterans organizations and the generosity of Consignment U.S.A. owner Frank Romanelli. Today, I was given the gift of love, in a way I havent felt in a long, long, time,she said. The overwhelming sense of pride, appreciation and respect ... was beyond my comprehension.

This means freedom, Nally said. I have my independence back. Cynthia Holden, CCVC judge advocate and Nallys friend, helped form a local womens veterans group earlier this year. One of the groups goals was to band together to meet the needs of other female veterans. They chose 64-year-old Nally, who lives on a fixed income and who sold her car five years ago to be able to move from a veterans home in Gainesville to her own apartment in Crystal River. Without family in the area, she has had to depend on others to get her around ever since. Holden said they raised nearly $2,000.

County commission hires lobbyist C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterThe county will pay for a lobbyist in Tallahassee for five months even though it is tightening its purse strings. Winn Webb, chairman of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC), was the lone member opposed at Tuesdays meeting to fund lobbying services. Four of the fivemember board voted in favor. We are looking at a $4 million shortfall in next years budget, Webb argued. Where are we going to get it? We just cant keep pouring it out and think were going to have some great answer at the end of the year. County Administrator Brad Thorpe presented the board with letters from Peter Dunbar of Pennington, Moore, Wilkinson, Bell and Dunbar, a law firm with offices in Tallahassee, Tampa and Clearwater, and from RSA Consulting Group, a lobbyist firm based in Brandon. The lobbying service originally was budgeted at $50,000, Thorpe said. In this proposed letter, there would be a base fee of roughly $15,000 for a five-month contract for a fee of $3,000 per month, Thorpe said. This would commence on Dec. 1, which I assume we would have to adjust and it would end on April 31, which is See VETERAN / Page A8 See LOBBYIST / Page A8 Winn Webb Citrus County commission chairman.

Hopefully, this will satisfy people who think the viewing areas will be built such a way that people will be looking in their backyards, he said. 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. Three Sisters was purchased last year through the marriage of public and private money and efforts after it was discovered the property was slated for housing development. The city of Crystal River and Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) own the property and it is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS). 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.

A2 M ONDAY, D ECEMBER 12, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE L OCAL 000A2IE IS THIS RINGING ANY BELLS IN CRYSTAL RIVER DURING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON? IS THIS RINGING ANY BELLS IN CRYSTAL RIVER DURING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON? On October 13, 2011 the Subcommittee on Investigations and Oversight held a hearing in Washington, D.C. to highlight how science is used in policy decisions that are made under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Numerous judicial disputes over ESA-related actions underscore the challenges in weighing best available science against other policy considerations, often under short deadlines. Commenting upon the few species that have recovered as a result of the ESA, Subcommittee Chairman Paul Broun (RGA) said, In terms of effectiveness, I believe it would be hard to argue that the law has been anything but an abject failure. As a tool for advancing other special interest policy goals, it has certainly been very influential, but Im not sure that was the Acts original intent. Although the ESA is designed to protect species, its application is most visible when federally imposed plans to protect and recover a species restrict the actions of private citizens and other entities. For example, landowners may not be able to use their property in a manner they had planned and farmers may not be able to use as much of a rivers water as they need. Since takings claims are rarely successful, the science used to make ESA decisions is critical. The Endangered Species Act (ESA) is one of the most influential and farreaching environmental laws this nation has ever passed, Broun said. Since its passage in 1974, it has been the subject of considerable debate not only about its impact on our nations economy, but also about its ultimate effectiveness. Of the roughly 2,000 species listed as endangered or threatened, only about one percent have actually recovered. Chairman Broun noted, Everyone wants to save species from extinction, but honest people can have an honest debate about the most efficient and effective way to do so. Testifying today, former Assistant Secretary for Fish and Wildlife and Parks in the U.S. Department of the Interior, The Honorable Craig Manson, said that Although not intended by the drafters, implementation of the ESA has become a win-lose adversarial processThe politicization of the ESA began at its inception and has carried on through every Administration and Congress since then. Manson continued, When scientists and policymakers dont understand each other, then chaos and strife will reign in their relationships. The ESA exists at the confluence of science, law, and policy. It is not a purely scientific decision scheme. Further highlighting how debates over conservation policy are often dressed up as debates over conservation science, Mr. Jonathan Adler, Professor at the Case Western Reserve University School of Law, said that biological research is necessary to inform species conservation decisions. But species conservation is not and cannot be a wholly scientific exercise. Mr. Adler continued, Whether a given species is at risk of extinction may be a scientific question, but what to do about it is not. Witnesses highlighted recent events at the Department of Interior that have called into question how science informs policy related to the ESA. On September 16, 2011 U.S. District Court Judge Oliver Wanger of California sharply criticized the work and testimony concerning the Delta Smelt Biological Opinion by two Federal scientists, one from the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and one from the Bureau of Reclamation. Commenting upon the FWS scientist, Judge Wanger stated I find her testimony to be that of a zealot. In further comments about the Bureau of Reclamation scientist, he stated the only inference that the Court can draw is that it is an attempt to mislead and to deceive the Court into accepting what is not only not the best science, its not science. Mr. Gary Frazer, Assistant Director, Endangered Species, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, announced that the Department has instructed the scientific integrity officers of the Service and the Bureau of Reclamation to retain independent experts to evaluate the allegations made by Judge Wanger. After outlining several concerns with recent ESA listings in Alaska, Mr. Douglas Vincent-Lang, Special Assistant at the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, said that the ESA is being used by federal agencies to gain control over landscapes and seascapes, rather than to arrest species extinction. VincentLang continued, stating that ESA grants states a place at the table in all Endangered Species Act decisions, including the application of science in these decisions. Unfortunately, states are not being given equal deference on science during the implementation of the Act.

S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 MONDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS Its one of those things that would seem rather simple to outsiders but takes careful study by educators with the Citrus County School District. Choosing a school year calendar is months in the making, because it must take into account vacations, holidays, test schedules and state mandates. The school board will have the chance to choose from two alternatives Tuesday. School board members and administrators say the issue revolves around trying to end the first semester before the winter break. Citrus is one of a handful of high-performing school districts in Florida, giving it the ability to apply for a waiver from the state to start school earlier in August rather than later. The difference, they say, is significant because a late August start means they cannot conclude the first semester until mid January. Officials say test scores indicate the districts high performance is related at least in some part to the early start that includes a semester ending in December. The reason, they say, is obvious: Students score higher on end-ofsemester tests in December while the material is still fresh, rather than in January following a twoweek holiday break. Plus, ending the first semester in December allows students to take college classes called dual enrollment while still in high school because the schedule coincides with many colleges. Moving the testing to January would have a significant impact on the dual enrollment program, board members said. District officials would pick the early August start in a heartbeat, except the state must approve end-of-semester tests occurring in December. State officials, however, have not yet given Citrus the go-ahead to start the 2012-13 school year in early August. The two proposed calendars reflect both possibilities: An Aug. 8 start with the first semester ending in December and an Aug. 20 start with the first semester ending in mid-January. Patrick Simon, director of research and accountability, said four proposed calendars two each for the different starting dates were submitted to district staffers and school advisory enhancement councils for review and vote. The two recommended to the school board Tuesday received the most support. Simon, according to the board agenda, said the district hasnt heard yet from the state about the test schedule. He recommends the board can either choose a calendar for next school year or wait until January.Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be contacted at (352) 563-3228 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Public may comment on sewer project C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterThe sewer line project around Kings Bay in Crystal River will be the subject of a public hearing at Tuesdays meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). The hearing will start at 1:45 p.m. to take public comment about the method for the levy, collection and enforcement of nonad valorem assessments against the properties that benefited by the special assessment district. At their Dec. 6 meeting, commissioners discussed at length with county staff how more information was needed, especially about the city of Crystal Rivers decision to impose a 25 percent surcharge for monthly service to the property owners in the special assessment district. Staff was requested to bring answers to this weeks meeting. At 2:30 p.m., Dr. Todd R. Kincaid, Ph.D. for GeoHyros, will give a presentation, How much is too much, toward a water budget approach to management regarding the minimum flows and levels process. The board will be asked to approve the reorganization of the Solid Waste Management Division. Requests have been made to reclassify jobs to different pay grades. According to the Human Resources Department, these changes enhance control and will have a minimal impact on the Solid Waste Management operating budget. The board will acknowledge receipt of a donation from the Sunflower Springs Assisted Living Community. The board will execute a proclamation declaring Dec. 13 as recognition of The Women of Sugarmill Woods in honor of its 25th anniversary.

Keeping with the beat of the drums, Ashley McDermott belly danced her way around a spinning lighted ball, touting a silk scarf. It makes me feel good, McDermott said. I get up there and I start dancing, and I forget about everything. Its my little escape. The impromptu drumming continued from late afternoon to early evening, with no predetermined starting or stopping points for each drum song. Seth Buoymaster, drum circle organizer, said the main reason he attends the monthly drum circle is for the bonds he forms with fellow drummers. Friendship, he said. To have a group of people come together and create unity and end separation.

The accident happened in Geneva, about 23 miles northeast of Orlando. Tampa Police gun buy-back yields 1,000 guns More than 1,000 guns collected during a Tampa Police Departments gun buy-back event will be destroyed. A police statement says more than 1,000 guns were collected Saturday. A final count will be completed next week. Residents lined up waiting to turn in their guns. The police department paid $50 for each handgun and rifle turned in. The Tampa Bay Lightning and the widow of slain police officer Dave Curtis funded the event. Cape Canaveral Space shuttle model moves to make room After nearly two decades, a full-scale space shuttle model is being moved from the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex which will make room for a new exhibit. NASA crews moved the model Sunday from the central Florida complex to the Launch Complex 39 turn basin, about four miles away. It will remain there temporarily until being transported by barge in several months to Texas for display at Space Center Houston. A NASA report said the move will also help clear the way for the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex to begin building a new facility next year.

This occurred even though the Environmental Protection Agency says no such rules are planned. A yes vote was to send HR 1633 to the Senate. Rich Nugent, Yes. Nuisance Dust Rules: Members refused, 165-249, to preserve Clean Air Act authority to regulate what HR 1633 (above) defines as nuisance, or relatively minor, rural dust. A yes vote was to retain the federal authority on grounds it is needed to curb toxic-soot discharges by plants and mines in rural areas. Nugent, No. Congressional Veto of Regulations: Members expanded, 241-184, Congress's power to kill major rules issued by agencies. The bill subjects new rules to approval votes in both chambers and allows the proposals to die in 70 days if either chamber fails to conduct a vote. A yes vote was to send HR 10 to the Senate. Nugent, Yes. Consumer Protection Chief: Senators failed, 53-45, to reach 60 votes for ending GOP blockage of the nomination of Richard Cordray as the first director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The 2010 Dodd-Frank financial-regulation law created the bureau. A yes vote backed Cordray's nomination. Bill Nelson, Yes; Marco Rubio, No. Democrats' Payroll Rates: Voting 50-48, 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 backed S 1944, which would halve the rate to 3.1 percent of employees' pay next year up to $110,100. Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. GOP Payroll Rates: Senators defeated, 22-76, a GOP bill renewing for one year the law under which Social Security receives 4.2 percent of workers' pay, down from the usual 6.2 percent. A yes vote backed S 1931, which would pay for itself by slashing the federal work force and freezing civil servants' pay. Nelson, No; Rubio, Yes. Caitlin Halligan Nomination: Senators failed, 54-45, to reach 60 votes for ending a Republican filibuster against the nomination of Caitlin J. Halligan to sit on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. Halligan, 44, is general counsel for the New York County District Attorney's Office in Manhattan. A yes vote backed a nominee seen by critics as "activist" for stands on issues such as the legal liability of firearms manufacturers. Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. Key votes ahead: In the week of Dec. 12, both chambers will vote on the fiscal 2012 military budget, a renewal of this year's Social Security payroll-tax reduction, an extension of jobless benefits and 2012 appropriations bills. Congress hopes to adjourn for the year at week's end. 2011 Thomas Reports Inc. Call: 202-667-9760. QUESTION: Should teacher pay be cut so the school district can meet budget constraints? No. Id rather pay more in taxes than for that to happen. 40 percent (46 votes) Yes. An acrossthe-board nominal cut wouldnt be felt by teachers but would generate much revenue. 7 percent (8 votes) No. Find the money by cutting programs not directly tied to reading, writing, math and science. 42 percent (48 votes) Yes. If the option is cutting programs vs. cutting pay, cut pay. 11 percent (12 votes) Total votes: 114.

S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterFor the fifth year in a row, gift cards will be the most sought-after Christmas present this holiday season. According to a survey conducted by the National Retail Federation, shoppers are expected to spend an average of $155.43 on gift cards, the highest amount since 2007 and up from $145.61 last year. This holiday season, total spending on gift cards will reach $27.8 billion. Chuck McSweeney, store manager at Belk in Crystal River, said gift card sales are doing well this year, but they typically pick up right as Christmas nears. Theyre the seven-to-10days-before-Christmas hot item, he said. For people looking to give loved ones the freedom to choose their own perfect present, gift cards seem like a no-brainer. Nevertheless, the barrage of hidden fees and sneaky expiration dates caused a big enough fuss to prompt new regulations last year, which put an end to many of the pitfalls associated with gift cards. At Belk, McSweeney said their cards never expire or lose their value. Besides, he said, many gift-card recipients tend to flood the store the entire week after Christmas to use their cards during the after-Christmas sales. Yet TowerGroup, a consulting firm, estimates $2.5 billion in gift-card value will go unused this year. The problem is fees and expiration dates are not the only way consumers can miss using their gift cards. Iris Patrick of Crystal River said she and her husband, Eulon, recently received gift cards for a restaurant they couldnt use because the restaurant went out of business. They said they werent good anymore, she said. With so much confusion, the Better Business Bureau recommends the following tips for both givers and receivers of gift cards: Know the rules. The new federal rules are designed to protect consumers, and will restrict fees and affect gift card expiration dates. These new rules apply to two types of cards: retail gift cards, which can only be redeemed at the retailers and restaurants that sell them; and bank gift cards, which carry the logo of a payment card network like American Express, Visa or Mastercard and can be used wherever the brand is accepted. Check it out. Make sure you are buying from a known and trusted source. Avoid online auction sites, because the cards sold there may be counterfeit or may have been obtained fraudulently. Read the fine print before buying. Is there a fee to buy the card? Are there shipping and handling fees for cards bought by phone or online? Will any fees be deducted from the card after it is purchased? Inspect the card before buying it. Verify that no protective stickers have been removed, and the codes on the back of the card havent been scratched off to reveal a PIN number. Report any damaged cards to the store selling the cards. Provide the receiver with backup. Give the recipient the original receipt in case the card is later lost or stolen. Also, before you buy retail gift cards, consider the financial condition of the retailer or restaurant. A card from a business that files for bankruptcy or goes out of business may be worthless. If the business closes a store near the recipient, it may be hard to find another location where the card can be used. A business that files for bankruptcy may honor its gift cards, or a competitor may accept the card. Call the business or its competitor to find out if they are redeeming the cards, or if they will do so at a later date. Treat the gift card like cash. For receivers, its important to report lost or stolen cards to the issuer immediately. Some issuers will not replace cards that are lost or stolen, while other issuers will, for a fee.

Gingrich assailed by rivals, fires back at Romney Associated PressDES MOINES, Iowa Attacked as a lifelong Washington insider, newly minted Republican front-runner Newt Gingrich parried criticism from Mitt Romney in a campaign debate Saturday night, telling the former Massachusetts governor, The only reason you didnt become a career politician is because you lost to Teddy Kennedy in 1994. Thats probably true, replied Romney, who lost that Senate contest. He then quipped that if hed achieved his childhood dream, I would have been a football star all my life, too. Gingrich defended himself against attacks from Texas Rep. Ron Paul and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann as well as Romney, the former front-runner, in the first debate since he soared to the lead in polls nationally and in Iowa. The states caucuses Jan. 3 will kick off the competition for Republican National Convention delegates who will pick an opponent to President Barack Obama. All six Republicans on stage assailed Obamas handling of the economy, the overriding issue of the election, yet split down the middle on legislation making its way toward a year-end vote in Congress to extend a Social Security payroll tax cut into 2012. Romney, Gingrich and Paul said they favored it. Bachmann, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum said they opposed the measure. Whatever the impact of their differences on the presidential race, the internal disagreement could well portend difficulties for legislation that Obama has proposed and Republican leaders in Congress view as essential if the party is to avoid being tagged for raising taxes. The tone of the debate was generally respectful, the stakes ever higher as six rivals met onstage in the Iowa capital city. The debate was the 12th since the long campaign began and the first since Herman Cains candidacy imploded after allegations of sexual harassment and an extramarital affair. Gingrichs personal life has become a campaign issue, too, and it came up briefly Saturday night. Asked whether marital fidelity was a valid concern for voters choosing a candidate, Perry said, If you cheat on your wife, youll cheat on your business partner. Its a characteristic people look at. Gingrich, who has been divorced twice and has admitted past infidelity, said the issue was an important one, then added, Ive made mistakes at times and Ive had to go to God for forgiveness. For Gingrich, the debate brought new standing a center position onstage that comes with being a leader in the polls as well as the challenge of fielding criticism from his rivals. Other contenders sought to stand out. Bachmann referred to the former speaker and the onetime Massachusetts governor as Newt-Romney, saying both men hold similar views on health care, illegal immigration, cap-and-trade legislation and the payroll tax cut extension. Paul said he, unlike the others, often took lonely conservative stands in Congress. I end up sometimes, believe it or not, voting all by myself, thinking why arent there people paying attention? Gingrich also defended his recent statement that Palestinians were an invented people. Several of his rivals said they generally agreed with his description, but Romney said with the remark, the former speaker may well have made it more complicated for Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to move toward peace with Palestinians. He said it is important to show sobriety, care and stability, an unspoken accusation against Gingrich, adding, Im not a bomb thrower, rhetorically or literally. Gingrich responded by declaring he was a conservative in the mold of Ronald Reagan, a president who he said spoke the truth, as when he called the Soviet Union the evil empire. Gingrichs decision to invoke Kennedy, the late senator from Massachusetts, served as a dual reminder that Romney has been running for office since the mid-1990s and he lost to the man whose politics conservatives detested above all others. As for the question of whether he would have become a career politician if hed beaten Kennedy, Romney tried to turn the tables, saying his defeat in 1994 was probably the best thing I could have done for preparing me for the job I am seeking, because it put me back in the private sector. One of Romneys campaign calling cards is his career as a businessman, a time he says helped him understand how jobs are created. Paul has been airing television commercials in Iowa attacking the former House speaker, and Romneys campaign has become increasingly critical of him, bolstered by a multimilliondollar television ad campaign that is financed by allies. Under questioning from Paul, Gingrich said he had never lobbied for Freddie Mac, a quasi-government agency that paid him at least $1.6 million to provide strategic advice. Paul shot back, Its the taxpayers money, though. We were bailing them out. By the debates last moments, the contenders found something nice to say about one another, an obvious attempt to build their own support at the expense of others.

Rick Santorum, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Massachus etts Gov. Mitt Romney, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, and Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn. take part in th e Republican debate Saturday in Des Moines, Iowa. Associated PressWASHINGTON After a dreary summer marred by the fight over government borrowing, rank-andfile Democrats say they are growing more optimistic about President Barack Obamas political prospects in 2012. They cite his tougher, more populist tone and what they view as a chaotic primary fight among Republicans. Many Democrats acknowledged high unemployment and economic uncertainty create formidable obstacles for the incumbent. But interviews with more than a dozen Democratic activists across the nation found support for Obamas more forceful message against GOP lawmakers and interest in rebutting the presidential candidates. Several pointed to Obamas speech last week in Kansas, where he argued the middle class had been under duress for the past decade and economic policies must give everyone a fair shot and a fair share. He didnt have his voice and we didnt have our voice, said David Leland, an attorney in Columbus, Ohio, and former state party chairman. But now he has successfully turned that particular corner and most people are much more enthusiastic and much more fired up about it. Added Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, the second-ranking Senate Democrat: What he said in Kansas brought us back down to basics. Durbin told CNNs State of the Union on Sunday this is a make-orbreak moment for the middle class in America. Entering 2012, Obama faces a set of economic numbers that have improved but that no incumbent would relish: unemployment of 8.6 percent in November, down from 9 percent in October; consumer confidence of 56, well below the level where a president typically gets re-elected; and an economy that has created 100,000 or more jobs five months in a row the first time that has happened since April 2006. Democrats encouraged about Obama in 2012 By the debates last moments, the contenders found something nice to say about one another.

Thorpe said Dunbar proposed to subcontract to RSA to represent the county on the following issues: transportation corridors, redistricting, Port Citrus and pursuing funds for Florida Department of Transportation projects. Webb questioned whether the county had any issue this Legislative session that would require the work of a lobbyist. The county has two state senators and a state representative who have been given the countys legislative agenda. We should keep this money aside, Webb said. We can hire one down the road if we need it. Right now, I just dont see paying $3,000 a month just to have the pilot light on. The four other commissioners explained why they favored hiring a lobbyist. Commissioner Dennis Damato said Citrus County needed to know about water-specific issues. Commissioner Rebecca Bays said the volume of hundreds of bills and amendments would be difficult to address without a lobbyist to advise the BOCC. Other issues of importance to Citrus County include energy, health, agriculture, tourism and code regulations. Commissioner John JJ Kenney asked Thorpe how many of Floridas 67 counties have registered lobbyists in Tallahassee, and was told 40 counties, 104 cities and 19 towns in Florida have hired lobbyists. Kenney said he looked at hiring a lobbyist as another tool in the BOCCs toolbox to take care of Citrus County. Commissioner Joe Meek said he wanted a lobbyist advocating specifically for port legislation and transportation corridors. Damato pointed out the Withlacoochee Regional Water Supply Authority has a paid professional lobbyist who deals with just one issue water but it is a huge issue. That lobbyist was paid about the same as the proposal before the board, even though the water supply authoritys assets are less than $2 million, while Citrus County has assets of hundreds of millions of dollars that need to be protected. Webb said hiring a lobbyist would duplicate service already provided by the water supply authoritys lobbyist and other agencies that have lobbyists. He pointed out Citrus County is a member of the Small County Coalition of Florida, whose mission is to help Floridas small and rural counties address legislative issues from a small county/rural perspective and work with state agencies leadership. Bays made the motion to approve, seconded by Kenney. The vote was 4-1.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916.

O PINION Page A10 MONDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2011 New arrival A breath of fresh air has arrived in Citrus County a welcomed addition to our County Veterans Services Office. Our newly appointed veterans service officerMr. Chuck Fettis has arrived armed to the teeth with a bevy of ammunition in support of our local veterans. We recently invited Chuck as a guest speaker to our Marine Corps League Detachment 819 monthly meeting. What an impressive representative of the Veteran Administration Mr. Fettis portrays. This man knows his onions!His presentation made it obvious that he is here to work for our vets. I for one have had personal contact with Chuck as a client and I walked away with a sense of total gratification. His knowledge and skills of veterans issues vastly exceeded my expectations. Paul Pilny Inverness Underfunding Im having a hard time understanding the logic of this proposal. Weve heard nothing but a constant drumbeat for 20 years or so about the impending insolvency of Social Security from Republicans, corporate Democrats, pundits and the corporate media. So why would Washington politicians even consider continuing to underfund this vital social safety net through a payroll tax reduction again in 2012. Claude Strass Homosassa R OBERTK OEHLER Guest Columnist W ill Occupy Wall Street hold together long enough to cut to the deep chase? Will it find a voice to articulate not merely the pain of the struggling middle class but the endemic unfairness and racism of inescapable poverty? Everyone is important, read the sign of an elderly protester. My God, what if it were true? What if we could see, in the desperate thrashing of the abandoned class, everyones future, that of the 99 percent and that of the 1 percent? Let the Occupy movement become such a merging of voices that it reaches and changes the rigged game of American democracy and puts the collective failure of the system, in all its manifestations from environmental collapse to our doomed wars and the hubris of empire to the violence in our streets at the forefront of our media and our consciousness. Let the movement be the first tremor of a new awareness that dehumanizes no one. This awareness has been under construction for a long time. My guess is Im not the only one who keeps coming across ideas and idealists who seem to be part of the movement even if their focus is solely on a small, particular corner of the world they have devoted their lives to changing, and ostensibly has nothing to do with Wall Street or politics. Could it be our solutions are converging? For instance, I recently attended part of the 25th anniversary celebration of the Christian Peacemaker Teams in Chicago. One of the speakers, Elce Redmond, an activist in the citys South Austin neighborhood, talked about efforts he helped organize to calm down the gang violence at several local schools. The resident-peacemakers did not show up at the schools as some ad hoc security force, to stand in us-vs.-them solidarity against neighborhood teenagers, but as violence interrupters, a la CeaseFire, actively engaging the young people in conversations and bringing a calming consciousness into volatile situations. Many of the young people didnt want to fight, but felt it was the only way to resolve conflict, Redmond said. We had conflict resolution classes in the high school. We decided to build a youth peace brigade. But it was one particular story he told of a brief, emotioncharged encounter with a young boy at the local elementary school, then with his mother that caused me to draw a connection with the Occupy Wall Street protests around the country and the American and global financial predators their presence is challenging. The boy was about to cross a street near the school in the middle of the block, Redmond said. When he told the boy he should cross at the crosswalk, for safetys sake, the boy became furious and cursed him out. Then the boy went home and came back with his mother, who also loosed a barrage of profanity at Redmond, whose only interest had been keeping her son safe. He said nothing as she swore at him, except to tell her not to talk like that in front of a child. She went back home. Thats not quite the end of the story. Sometime later, Redmond said, he saw the mom again, and this time she apologized to him, explaining on the day shed blown up at him shed been going through an eviction and facing utility shutoffs. Shed been beside herself with worry and had lost her ability to cope except by lashing out. My thought, as I heard this story, was that we should stop disseminating statistics about how many Americans are living in poverty, as though poverty were a solid state of reduced circumstances rather than a continual daily struggle to maintain rudimentary survival, kind of like living in quicksand. In other words, poverty means terminal instability, and to be cursed with it to be a member of the abandoned class means you have little chance to imagine, let alone plan for, a stable future for yourself or your children; and furthermore, such instability is contagious. Peoples emotions are continually on a hair-trigger. Large numbers of desperate people destabilize neighborhoods and radiate fear into the gated communities of the comfortable. We cant live like this. None of us can. While many of the old centers of inequality in Latin America, such as Brazil, have been striving in recent years, rather successfully, to improve the plight of the poor and reduce gaps in income, America has allowed inequality to grow, economist Joseph Stiglitz wrote in May, in a prescient article for Vanity Fair called Of the 1 percent, by the 1 percent, for the 1 percent. He added, citing Alexis de Tocquevilles insight: Everyone possesses self-interest in a narrow sense: I want whats good for me right now! Self-interest properly understood is different. It means appreciating that paying attention to everyone elses self-interest in other words, the common welfare is in fact a precondition for ones own ultimate well-being. The common good and common sense have been sacrificed on the altar of corporate profit over the past three decades. At last, this process has hit a counterforce, as more and more people reoccupy the public domain and demand a shift in national direction. For now, we all belong to the abandoned class.

Current Florida law as contained in Florida Statute 723 prohibits the owner of a manufactured home park from raising the rent on a lot or amending access to amenities solely on the basis of a change in ownership of a home. This means the purchaser of an existing manufactured home knows the cost of rent and terms of access to amenities for the length of the original purchasers rental agreement, which under current law, the new owner can assume. However, changes in state law as proposed in House Bill 271 and Senate Bill 386 would amend the language of current law and allow the owner of a manufactured home community to raise rent or make other changes when an owner sells their home. Tenants of manufactured home communities are concerned if passed, these bills would lead to uncertainty on the part of potential purchasers and would make sale of a manufactured home more difficult. We believe their concerns are valid. While we generally believe owners of property should have considerable latitude in how they use their property, this seems like a situation where protections are necessary for those who rent the land on which their homes sit. People who purchase manufactured homes often make the purchase decision based on the cost of the housing unit and cost of living in the community. State law already allows the owner of a park to raise rents in the entire park with proper notification, but it also provides protection for individual home buyers. We believe this is an unnecessary change in law that has the potential of benefiting owners of manufactured home parks at the expense of owners of the homes, and urge the bills be defeated in the legislature. THE ISSUE: Proposed legislation could create uncertainty for purchasers of manufactured homes.OUR OPINION: Legislation takes away some protections now in state law.

Associated PressDURBAN, South Africa Some ministers and top climate negotiators left Durban without an agreement Saturday, with time running out and the prospect of an inconclusive end jeopardizing new momentum in the fight against global warming. Negotiators from 194 nations had worked straight through Thursday and Friday night. Nearly 24 hours after the two-week-long talks were to have wrapped up Friday, delegates appeared stuck on issues related to the next phase of fighting climate change. An indecisive outcome will be an embarrassment to South Africa, hosting the U.N. climate talks for the first time. If no decision is reached for lack of time, an additional midyear conference could be called to complete the agenda, or government ministers could meet on the sidelines of a major environmental summit in Brazil next May. Chief among the unresolved differences was a clause encouraging countries to pledge greater reductions of greenhouse gases and to close what is known as the emissions gap. More than 80 countries have made either legally binding or voluntary pledges to control carbon emissions. But taken together, they will not go far enough to avert a potentially catastrophic rise in average temperatures this century, according to scientific modeling and projections. European Commissioner Connie Hedegaard said a lack of ambition could derail progress made on a host of other issues. Countries had made concessions that they had resisted for years, and it would be irresponsible to lose that momentum now, she said.

S. Korea allows 3 Christmas treesSEOUL, South Korea South Korea will allow Christians to light two more Christmas tree-shaped towers near the tense border with North Korea despite strong opposition from Pyongyang, an official said Sunday. The South Korean government allowed a Christian group to light a massive steel Christmas tree near the border last year for the first time in seven years as tensions flared in the wake of two deadly attacks blamed on the North. That tree will be lit again this month, while South Korea has also decided to allow other Christian groups to light two other front-line Christmas trees, a Defense Ministry official said. The decision is meant to help guarantee freedom of expression and religion, the official said on condition of anonymity, citing office policy.

From wire reports World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A12 MONDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressPANAMA CITY, Panama More than two decades after the U.S. forced him from power, Manuel Noriega returned Sunday to Panama as a prisoner and, to many of those he once ruled with impunity, an irrelevant man. Some Panamanians feel hatred for the former strongman and rejected American ally; a few others nostalgia. But as he returned to his native country for the first time since his ouster, it seemed like few people had any strong feelings at all. There were no legions of admirers at Panama Citys Tocumen airport when the Spanish Iberia airlines flight touched down, delivering him from Paris La Sante prison. The crowds in the capital Sunday were of holiday shoppers. Noriega, who has served drug sentences in the United States and a money-laundering term in France, was whisked by helicopter to the El Renacer prison to serve out three 20-year sentences for the slayings of political opponents in the 1980s. An elevated platform was set up at the prison so journalists could watch him enter, giving Panamanians what likely was their only glimpse of the man who once ran the country like his private fiefdom. As if to show how just far he has declined, Noriega, once known for his snappy military uniforms and nationalistic swagger, appeared to have been wheeled into the prison in a wheelchair. Officials covered the person in the wheelchair with what looked like a coat and his face was not visible, leading to speculation he might have been a decoy and the ex-dictator may have been snuck in by a police convoy that entered the prison about a half hour later. Noriega returns to Panamian home Former military man to serve time in jail Citadel dealing with sex abuse fallout Associated PressCHARLESTON, S.C. At The Citadel, a storied bastion of Southern heritage, a barracks plaque enshrines a quote from Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee: Duty is the sublimest word in the English language. Now the state military college is doing some very public soul searching over whether the school indeed did its duty by nine young boys in the Charleston area who say they were abused by a man who once was a counselor at the schools summer camp. As authorities prepare to prosecute ex-counselor Louis ReVille for crimes allegedly committed after he left the school, the Citadels president has acknowledged the college should have contacted police in 2007 when a former camper told Citadel officials he had been abused by ReVille five years earlier. Instead, the college conducted its own internal investigation which a school attorney hoped at the time would prevent a criminal investigation or a lawsuit, according to emails but did not tell police. The college has hired an outside firm to review how it handled the complaint and has asked state Attorney General Alan Wilson to appoint a special counsel to investigate how the accusation was handled. At the time we took what we thought were the necessary steps. Its now clear we should have done more, the Citadels president, retired Lt. Gen. John Rosa, said last week. The schools response to the abuse allegation is unfortunately pretty typical, said Ron Hughes, a psychologist who is president of the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children. He said whether it be Penn State, where former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky allegedly assaulted children over the span of 15 years, or the abuse scandal in the Catholic Church, many organizations think they can avoid publicity and conduct internal investigations of a complicated issue. Thats always a mistake, he said, adding attorneys or administrators are just not equipped to investigate sex abuse allegations. Ex-counselor about to face criminal trial Associated PressWASHINGTON Mary Power is 92 and worried about surviving another frigid New England winter because deep cuts in federal home heating assistance benefits mean she probably cant afford enough heating oil to stay warm. She lives in a drafty trailer in Bostons West Roxbury neighborhood and gets by on $11,148 a year in pension and Social Security benefits. Her heating aid help this year will drop from $1,035 to $685. With rising heating oil prices, it probably will cost her more than $3,000 for enough oil to keep warm unless she turns her thermostat down to 60 degrees, as she plans. I will just have to crawl into bed with the covers over me and stay there, said Power, a widow who worked as a cashier and waitress until she was 80. I will do what I have to do. Thousands of poor people across the Northeast are bracing for a difficult winter with substantially less home heating aid coming from the federal government. Theyre playing Russian roulette with peoples lives, said John Drew, who heads Action for Boston Community Development Inc., which provides aid to low-income residents in Massachusetts. The issue could flare just as New Hampshire votes in the Republican presidential primary. Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, said she hopes the candidates will take up the regions heating aid crunch because it underscores how badly the country needs a comprehensive energy policy. Several Northeast states already have reduced heating aid benefits to families as Congress considers cutting more than $1 billion from last years $4.7 billion Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program that served nearly 9 million households. Families in New England, where the winters are long and cold and people rely heavily on costly oil heat, are expected to be especially hard hit. Many poor and elderly people on fixed incomes struggle with rising heating bills that can run into thousands of dollars. That can force them to cut back on other necessities like food or medicine. The winter of 2011-12 could be memorable for the misery and suffering of thousands of frigid households, New Hampshires Concord Monitor newspaper said in an editorial. Heating oil prices are expected to hit record highs, and federal fuel assistance may reach a record low for recent years. No more heat?

Joe Paterno fractured his pelvis again following a fall at his home but will not need surgery, a person close to the family told The Associated Press on Sunday. The former Penn State football coach was expected to make a full recovery after slipping Saturday and was admitted to the hospital the next day, the person added. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation. Paterno, who turns 85 on Dec. 21, is also undergoing radiation and chemotherapy for what his family has said is a treatable form of lung cancer. Son Scott Paterno has said doctors are optimistic about a full recovery. Paterno initially hurt his pelvis in August after he was blindsided on the field during preseason practice. It was determined he should remain in the hospital now to facilitate his regimen of cancer treatments while recovering from the pelvis injury, the AP was told.Cincy suspends Gates for 6 games after brawl CINCINNATI Cincinnati forward Yancy Gates got a sixgame suspension on Sunday for throwing punches at No. 8 Xavier, and seven other players were disciplined for their roles in a brawl that ended the annual crosstown rivalry game. Four Bearcats and four Musketeers were suspended in all. Three Cincinnati players got sixgame suspensions, the longest of those handed out. Gates punched Xaviers Kenny Frease in the face, causing a nasty gash below his left eye, and hit at least one other Musketeer during the fracas on Saturday, which prompted referees to call Xaviers 76-53 win with 9.4 seconds left. The Bearcats also gave Cheikh Mbodj and Octavius Ellis six-game suspensions. GeLawn Guyn was suspended for one game. Xavier suspended point guard Tu Holloway for one game, guard Mark Lyons for two, and Dez Wells and Landen Amos for four games each. Brewers Ryan Braun maintains hes innocent MILWAUKEE Ryan Braun certainly doesnt fit the image fans conjure up when they hear that a baseball slugger has been accused of using performanceenhancing drugs. Since he joined the Milwaukee Brewers in 2007, Braun has belted big home runs not with cartoonishly large muscles, but with a sweet swing and an ultraquick bat. Last season, he helped drive the Brewers to the playoffs and was voted the NLs Most Valuable Player. Now Braun finds himself fighting a 50-game suspension after news leaked he tested positive for a banned substance. He steadfastly maintains his innocence. A spokesman for Braun said in a statement issued to ESPN and The Associated Press that there are highly unusual circumstances surrounding this case which will support Ryans complete innocence. ESPN cited two sources Saturday in reporting the result, saying Braun tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone, adding a later test by the World Anti-Doping Agency lab in Montreal determined the testosterone was synthetic. Braun is appealing, according to people familiar with the case. And fans may be inclined to believe Braun, given his cleancut image. But there is a long history of athletes accused of taking banned drugs insisting they did so to recover from injuries. Sports medicine experts acknowledge the drugs may help, raising the possibility Braun might have been doing just that. Braun did not respond to a request for comment from the AP. We are dealing with an incomplete set of facts and speculation, Brewers chairman and principal owner Mark Attanasio said in a statement. Before there is a rush to judgment, Ryan deserves the right to be heard. We are committed to supporting Ryan to get to the truth of what happened in this unfortunate situation. From wire reports Associated PressJACKSONVILLE, Fla. Maurice Jones-Drew set a franchise scoring record, interim coach Mel Tucker got his first victory and Jacksonville did something it hadnt done in more than 13 years. It was a near-perfect day in an otherwise miserable season for the Jaguars. Jones-Drew scored four times, setting the franchise record for career touchdowns, and the Jaguars scored 41 unanswered points to beat the turnover-prone Tampa Bay Buccaneers 41-14 Sunday. Jones-Drew finished with 136 total yards, including 85 on the ground against one of the leagues worst run defenses. Tampa Bays bigger problem in its seventh consecutive loss was turnovers. The Buccaneers (4-9) had seven of them, helping set up each of Jacksonvilles four touchdowns in the second quarter. The Jaguars (4-9), who hadnt scored more than 20 points all season, scored four times in a span of 7:32. They scored on offense, defense and special teams in the same game for the first time since Nov. 1, 1998, at Baltimore. That also was the last time Jacksonville had scored 28 points in a quarter. Josh Freeman and Preston Parker had a lot to do with Jacksonvilles latest scoring frenzy. Freeman, back after missing last weeks game against Carolina because of an injured throwing shoulder, threw two interceptions and fumbled near the goal line. He completed 16 of 30 passes for 181 yards and was benched late in favor of Josh Johnson.

S TEVE M C G UNNIGLE CorrespondentA lot of times, your average young adult needs to be reminded to make the most out of today, to cherish the times they are in the midst of, to appreciate all that they are experiencing. Robert Cignarelli is not your average young adult. The senior midfielder for the Citrus High School boys soccer team appears the perfect example of someone seizing the day while hoping for more good memories ahead. Cignarelli, a four-year letterman in soccer, is a leader on the field and a standout student away from it. He is the ideal kid who names his parents as his main influence, yet seems ready to break out uninhibited into alifeall his own. It seems like hes got the whole world in front of him, Citrus soccer coach David Assumpcao said. In front of him stares a fairly uncertain future, as Robert remains undecided on a college major, and his chances of playing soccer at the next level are unclear. But none of this fazes him. Robert currently has straight As in school, and speaks of the sport he loves with an undeniable appreciation. Ive been playing soccer so long, that I definitely want to try to play college soccer, Cignarelli said. Ever since I was younger, its always been my dream. If I dont, its going to be hard for me. Its really going to be tough for me to say Im never going to play again. Cignarelli doesnt sound the least bit convinced that that will be the case. Soccer is immediately brought up in the equation of his college plans. I would love to go to USF, Cignarelli said. I love the area down there. They have a great soccer team, and everything is just great there. But that is for another day. Here and now, on the pitch at Citrus High School, Cignarelli is a clear leader for his team. He knows this, just as clearly as his coach and teammates know it. Robert is one of those guys who will always come out onto the field with his heart and soul, Assumpcao said. He wants to do everything he can to win a game. He wants to better all his teammates. Assumpcao describes a true all-around player when speaking of Cignarelli, saying his standout seniors success is due to hard work, and great intensity on the ball, and on the game. Hes got a great mind. He hasnt received any unsportsmanlike conducts, hes fast, hes agile; hes a good soccer player, Assumpcao said. The heart and soul that defines Cignarellis play is what he sees his team reflect right back to him. Hurricanes standout Robert Cignarelli excels on, off field See TODAY / Page B4 Associated Press Englands Luke Donald celebrates Sunday after he wins the Race to Dubai of European Championship tour of 2011 in the final round of the Dubai World Championship golf tournament in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Associated PressDUBAI, United Arab Emirates Luke Donald became the first golfer to win both the PGA Tour and European Tour money titles, finishing third in the Dubai World Championship on Sunday behind winner Alvaro Quiros. Quiros made a 40-foot eagle putt on the 18th hole for a two-shot victory over 1999 British Open champion Paul Lawrie. The top-ranked Donald, who won the PGA title earlier this year, had to finish better than ninth or hope Rory McIlroy didnt win the tournament. McIlroy tied for 11th at 9-under 279, leaving him more than $1.34 million behind Donald in the money race. Its funny to kind of sum up my feelings said Donald, who has just come back from five weeks off in which he buried his father and was on hand for the birth of his second child. You know, this is something Ive wanted for the past few months, to try and win both money lists, Donald said. Its very strange because I looked at the leaderboard on 13 and couldnt see Rory. I couldnt see Rorys name on there and the leaders were playing well, and at that point, I kind of knew I had made history and the last six holes were kind of surreal.

B2 M ONDAY, D ECEMBER 12, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE NFL F OOTBALL Parkers day was nearly as bad. He fumbled two punts, both caused by special teams ace Montell Owens, and had a costly penalty. Colin Cloherty, signed off the practice squad Friday, scooped Parkers second fumble and returned it 4 yards to give the Jaguars a spark. Blaine Gabbert found Marcedes Lewis behind the defense for a 62-yard gain on the next drive, setting up Jones-Drews 1yard score that tied the game at 14. Two plays later after Parker was flagged for holding Freeman fumbled at the 1-yard line as Daryl Smith sacked him. Nate Collins recovered in the end zone to make it 21-14. Freeman threw an interception on Tampa Bays next possession. Jacksonville turned the short field into a 28-14 lead when Gabbert found Jones-Drew with a short pass near the goal line. Drew stretched the ball over the pylon for his 71st touchdown in 90 career games, breaking the team record held by Fred Taylor. Jones-Drew didnt celebrate. Instead, he simply jogged back to the bench with the record-setting football. He wasnt done, either. The player Bucs coach Raheem Morris dubbed a rolling ball of butcher knives earlier in the week made it 35-14 in the fourth when he caught a short pass near the goal line and plowed through two defenders for another score. He also scored from a yard out late. Gabbert completed 19 of 33 passes for 217 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions. The only downside for Jacksonville, which ended a three-game slide, was injuries. The Jaguars lost receivers Mike Thomas (concussion) and Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and placekicker Josh Scobee (leg) during the game. Scobees injury forced the team to go for a fourthand-9 play late in the game and also attempt a 2-point conversion after JonesDrews fourth touchdown. Linebacker Russell Allen had to kick off, providing some levity in a blowout. It looked more like an onside kick than anything. When the final seconds ticked off the clock, the Jaguars had even more fun by dosing Tucker with ice water. Cardinals 21, 49ers 19San Francisco397019 Arizona077721 First Quarter SFFG Akers 46, 4:39.

AARON ONTIVEROZ /The Denver Post Denver Broncos running back Jeremiah Johnson is upended Sunday by the Chicago Bears Brian Urlacher, left, during the second quarter in Denver. Tebow, Prater lead Broncos to 13-10 victory over Bears Associated PressDENVER Tim Tebow led Denver to another comeback victory, with Matt Praters 51-yard field goal with 8:34 left in overtime, giving the Broncos a 13-10 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday. Praters 59-yarder with 2 seconds left in regulation tied the score. It was Denvers sixth straight win, and half of them have come in OT since Tebow was promoted to starter. After failing to score on their first 11 possessions, the AFC-West leading Broncos (8-5) erased a 10-0 deficit in the final 2:08 of regulation. Tebow hit Demaryius Thomas with a 10-yard touchdown pass, then got the ball back with 58 seconds left and drove Denver downfield for Praters kick. The Bears (7-6) won the toss in overtime and were in field goal range when Marion Barber coughed up the football at the Broncos 34 and Elvis Dumervil recovered.Texans 20, Bengals 19CINCINNATI Rookie T.J. Yates led the biggest drive in Houston Texans history, throwing a 6-yard touchdown pass with 2 seconds left for a 20-19 victory that brought the first playoff berth in franchise history. With their seventh straight win, the Texans (10-3) moved to the threshold of their first playoff berth. They clinched the AFC South title a few minutes later when Tennessee lost to New Orleans. Cincinnati (7-6) couldnt prevent the Texans from going 80 yards in the closing minutes behind their third quarterback in the last four games. Yates 6-yard throw to Kevin Walter set off a celebration on the Houston sideline. Saints 22, Titans 17NASHVILLE, Tenn. Drew Brees threw two touchdown passes to Marques Colston in the fourth quarter to lead New Orleans to its fifth straight victory. The NFC South-leading Saints (10-3) had little trouble picking up yards, but struggled to score until Brees and Colston connected on passes of 35 and 28 yards. The Titans (7-6) twice had the ball in the final minutes with a chance to win. The first time, New Orleans stopped backup Jake Locker on fourth-and-1 at the Saints 24 with 2:18 left. The second time, JoLonn Dunbar sacked a scrambling Locker on third-and-goal as time expired. Brees threw for 347 yards and joined Hall of Famer Johnny Unitas as the only quarterbacks to throw a touchdown pass in 40 straight games. Locker replaced Matt Hasselbeck, who hurt his left calf in the second quarter.Patriots 34, Redskins 27 LANDOVER, Md. Tom Brady threw for 357 yards and three touchdowns, and Rob Gronkowski set an NFL single-season record for most touchdown catches by a tight end as New England won its fifth straight. Gronkowski snagged his 14th and 15th scoring receptions, moving him past Antonio Gates and Vernon Davis. Gates had 13 in 2004, and Davis matched that total in 2009. Washington (4-9) has lost eight of its last nine. Ravens 24, Colts 10 BALTIMORE Terrell Suggs had three sacks and forced three fumbles to keep Indianapolis winless. Baltimore (10-3) limited the Colts (013) to 167 yards 53 through three quarters. Were it not for a touchdown on the games final play, Indianapolis would have been held without a TD for the second time since the 2003 season opener. Joe Flacco threw two touchdown passes and Ray Rice ran for 103 yards and a score to help the Ravens win their fourth straight and improve to 7-0 at home. Baltimore is tied with Pittsburgh for the lead in the AFC North. The Ravens hold the tiebreaker with two wins over the Steelers. Falcons 31, Panthers 23 CHARLOTTE, N.C. Matt Ryan threw two fourth-quarter touchdown passes to rookie Julio Jones and Atlanta erased a 16-point deficit. Ryan threw for 320 yards and tied a career high with four touchdowns passing. Atlanta (8-5) avoided a costly loss to stay alive in the NFC wild card race. For the Panthers (4-8), it was the sixth time this season theyve lost after being ahead or tied in the fourth quarter.Lions 34, Vikings 28DETROIT Backup Joe Webb fumbled deep in Lions territory in the final seconds, and Detroit escaped with a victory. Matthew Stafford threw for two scores in the first quarter to give Detroit one of its three-touchdown leads. The Lions (8-5) had lost five of seven, and played without defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, who is serving the second game of his twogame suspension. Webb led the Vikings (2-11) to TDs on his first two drives after rookie Christian Ponder was benched. On first-and-goal from the 1 with 9 seconds left, a replay appeared to show DeAndre Levy grabbing Webbs facemask, but a flag wasnt thrown. The ball popped free at about the 11, and was batted back toward midfield by Detroits Stephen Tulloch. Webb ran it down and tried to pick it up, but the ball came loose again and Cliff Avril finally fell on it to end the game.Packers 46, Raiders 16 GREEN BAY, Wis. Aaron Rodgers threw for 281 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in less than three full quarters worth of work, Ryan Grant had two touchdowns rushing and Charles Woodson picked off a pass against his former team. With the win, the Packers ran their record to 13-0 leaving them three games short of completing a perfect regular season. And they did it with a nearperfect performance. Carson Palmer threw for 245 yards with a touchdown and four interceptions for the Raiders (7-6), who looked like anything but legitimate contenders in the AFC West. The biggest concern for the Packers was an apparent left knee injury to wide receiver Greg Jennings in the third quarter.Chargers 37, Bills 10SAN DIEGO Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes, two to Antonio Gates, and the San Diego Chargers beat the Buffalo Bills 37-10 Sunday to keep their playoff hopes alive. Buffalo (5-8) lost its sixth straight game and was eliminated from playoff contention for the 12th straight year. The Chargers (6-7) have won two straight following their six-game losing streak. Rivers was 24 of 33 for 240 yards. Ryan Mathews gained 114 yards on 20 carries, the first time hes had three straight 100-yard games. Cardinals 21, 49ers 19GLENDALE, Ariz. John Skelton stepped in for the injured Kevin Kolb and threw for 282 yards and three touchdowns, and the Arizona Cardinals rallied to hand the San Francisco 49ers just their third loss of the season on Sunday. Larry Fitzgerald had seven catches for 149 yards, including a 46-yarder for a touchdown and a 53-yarder to set up the go-ahead score in the fifth victory in six games for Arizona (6-7). Kolb left the game after a blow to the head on Arizonas third play. Skelton had a 60-yard TD pass to Early Doucet and a 3-yard toss to Andre Roberts for what proved to be the winning score early in the fourth quarter.Eagles 26, Dolphins 10 MIAMI Philadelphia forced three turnovers while scoring four times during a nine-minute span in the second quarter and totaled nine sacks. Michael Vick, back after missing three games with broken ribs, threw for 208 yards and a touchdown. LeSean McCoy scored two touchdowns to hike his season total to 17. The Eagles (5-8) won for only the second time in the past six games and still need a sweep of the final three games to have any chance of repeating as NFC East champions. The Dolphins (4-9) had a three-game home winning streak snapped and sank deeper into last place in the AFC East.Jets 37, Chiefs 10 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Mark Sanchez threw two touchdown passes and ran for two more scores as the Jets kept pace in the AFC playoff race. The Jets got things started quickly by scoring 28 points in the first half and were helped by an inept Chiefs offense that managed 4 total yards in the first two quarters. Shonn Greene had a season-high 129 yards rushing and a score, and Santonio Holmes and LaDainian Tomlinson each caught touchdown passes for the Jets (85), who have won three straight and improved to 6-1 at home.

Peter Hanson of Sweden was fourth, another two shots back, and Masters champion Charl Schwartzel was in fifth another shot behind. The big-hitting Quiros came into the final day with a two-shot lead but squandered it after he had three bogeys on the front nine to go with five birdies. Lawrie, who led after the first day, took the lead after he notched five birdies in his first eight holes. But Lawrie bogeyed the 12th after an approach shot missed the green and Quiros birdied the 14th to take the lead for good. Lawries short game continued to haunt him when an errant chip on 16 cost him a birdie chance. Then, the 42year-old Lawrie missed a 6foot birdie putt at the 17th that would have tied it. Quiros managed to reach the 18th green in two while Lawrie was there in three. Rather than play it safe, Quiros clinched the win with a long eagle putt. The Spaniard pumped his fist as the crowd cheered. The win was just Quiros second this year on the tour after the Dubai Desert Classic and sixth overall on the tour. It was a much happier ending than a week ago, when Quiros had a 3-shot lead going into the final round of the Hong Kong Open. He let it slip after erratic drives and poor putting, finishing in a tie for seventh five shots behind McIlroy, who holed a greenside bunker shot to win. Quiros praised the rivalry that developed over the final round with Lawrie, who ended a nineyear drought earlier this year with a victory in Spain. I was hitting good shots all day but, as I said, Paul was marvelous, he said. He was holing every single putt. He was in contention every single time. I think he was just one or two times in trouble and the second one was on 12. From this moment onwards, it changed the situation completely.

A record crowd of 383 registered for the race through downtown Inverness. Of those, 80 were youngsters. There were plenty of faithfulrunners who showed up for the popular race. It was an overcast and cool morning, and there were few if any complaints about the weather, with the temperatures in the 60s. The female winner, Cindy Carver, finished fourth overall with a time of 19:16. She lives in Springfield, Mo., but is staying in an RV in Lake Panasoffkee. I have won a few races, she said. This (course) is kind of challenging. The weather is nice. The hills were tough. Its fun. James Amodie won the race in 17:54. He is a sophomore at Springstead High School in Spring Hill. Inverness resident Cameron Grant was second with a time of 18:28. I took the lead right away, Amodie said. Conditions were pretty good. I dont like the hills. It (running in front of people waiting for the Christmas Parade) motivated me a lot and helped me keep my pace. I needed to get a race in. I will be back next year. Marathoner Ernie Chatman of Brooksville finished the race in 13th with a time 20:31. Chatman, 62, was a state title-winning cross country coach at Hernando High but is now retired. He has run in marathons in all 50 states. I did better than I thought, Chatman said. This is something different for me. The weather was good. It was a little humid. Temperature-wise, it was good. Good crowd. It was much bigger than the last time I ran in 2004. The crowd keeps you running when you want to stop. Citrus High cross country runner Alyssa Weber was 15th with a time of 20:51. She had the best time of any Citrus County girl at the FHSAA state meet last month. Lecanto triathlete Bob Brockett finished a respectable 34th with a time of 22:36. I enjoyed this one, Brockett said. We had terrific conditions. Crystal River High teacher Laura Wingate found she loves the local races. She was 57th with a time of 23:47. It was not one of my better times, Wingate said. It was a good race. Lecanto teacher and assistant girls basketball coach Ty Hamilton enjoyed the race. It was a very nice race, Hamilton said. It was beautiful weather to run in, not too hot and not too cold. Its a nice day and I am glad to be here. Former Crystal River High cross country runner Karen Stukes won the womens masters title with a time of 23:13. Phil Radford apparently never got the memo about retirement. The 79-year-old Villages resident doesnt know he is to relax, play about 1,000 rounds of golf, go on cruises and maybe play bridge or lawn bowling. Instead, he runs. He has done 50 races this year and was doing three this weekend. I ran at Lake-Sumter Community College this morning, then I came here, he said. I will go to Ocala later on. I like to run. I dont play golf. I run about five miles a day. This is one of the better races. It is well organized. I am retired from the oil and gas industry. I worked all over the eastern United States. The weather is nice. I will be back next year. Jenny Brown of Homosassa ran a 23:31 and finished 53rd. Brown has four children and once auditioned for American Idol. She felt running helped her vocally. It was good, said Brown. It was the first time I ran one of these in four years. I did get away from running. I had four children. I am teaching in Hernando County. It was fun. The race director was very happy with the event. We have record numbers today, said race director Chris Moling. I attribute a lot of our numbers to the kids. We are glad to have them and they are the future runners of Citrus County. Its a lot of fun for everybody. They get to run in front of thousands of spectators. Its perfect running weather. We are very happy to have the 13th annual Jingle Bell. Everything ran like clockwork today.

This team has the most heart of any team I have ever played for, and I know they wont give up on me, and Ill never give up on them, said Cignarelli, who mentioned his desire to dedicate the Hurricanes season to the memory of 18year-old Citrus High School graduate Fred Drew, who was killed earlier this year in a shooting incident. In that light, Robert Cignarelli knows and sees all that he has, and the way he lives is a direct reflection of that. Hes living like theres no tomorrow, Assumpcao said. He wants to put everything in, and he doesnt want to regret tomorrow that he didnt put in 100 percent. Chances are, he wont. TODAYContinued from Page B1 Associated PressWASHINGTON Hometown favorite Lamont Peterson clearly thought he won the fight. Dethroned champion Amir Khan felt he had been cheated. Peterson, helped by referee Joe Cooper deducting two points from Khan for pushing in the seventh and 12th rounds, scored the split-decision to win the WBA and IBF junior welterweight titles Saturday night. Judges George Hall and Valerie Dorsett scored the fight 113-112 in favor of Peterson. Nelson Vasquez had Khan winning 115-110. Khan, who was favored to win in his sixth title defense, started out strongly, scoring the only knockdown in the fight late in the first round. In fact, Khan, who complained that Cooper was favoring Peterson, thought he had knocked Peterson down a second time. It was ruled a slip. Peterson began his counterattack in the third round taking the fight to Khan and hitting him with a series of blows to the head, buckling his knee. The challenger secured the fight by winning the 10th and 11th rounds on Hill and Dorsetts scorecards. The 12th was ruled even after the point was deducted from Khan. Oscar De La Hoya, whose Golden Boy Promotions put on the fight, started campaigning for another bout even before the fighters spoke. There will be a rematch, De La Hoya predicted. Roy Jones Jr. wins unanimous decision ATLANTA Roy Jones Jr. won a 10-round unanimous decision against Max Alexander on Saturday night, snapping a three-match losing streak. Neither fighter made a big impression, and there were no knockdowns in the fight at the Atlanta Civic Center. But Jones fought the more stylish fight while winning all three judges cards: 100-90, 99-91 and 100-90. The 42-year-old Jones (55-8-1) rarely pressed over the first seven rounds, but put together several combinations in the eighth and 10th rounds to beat Alexander (14-6-1). Im feeling wonderful. I want a cruiserweight title, the world title, said Jones, who weighed in at 189 pounds. This is just a start. Im not through yet. Prior to the eighth round, his best work came in the form of lunging often wild lefts and rights as he kept his distance from Alexander. Occasionally, Jones ripped off combinations in clench situations as Alexander kept switching from rightto lefthanded styles, but until the late rounds he was not impressive.

Thought for Today: Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old. Franz Kafka, author (1883-1924). Associated PressLOS ANGELES A state senator from Southern California was considering calling for a boycott of Lowes stores after the home improvement chain pulled its advertising from a reality show about Muslim-Americans. Calling the retail giants decision un-American and naked religious bigotry, Sen. Ted Lieu, D-Torrance, told The Associated Press on Sunday he would also consider legislative action if Lowes doesnt apologize to Muslims and reinstate its ads. The senator sent a letter outlining his complaints to Lowes Chief Executive Officer Robert A. Niblock. The retail giant stopped advertising on TLCs All-American Muslim after a group called the Florida Family Association complained the show was propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agendas clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values. The program premiered last month and chronicles the lives of five families from Dearborn, Mich., a Detroit suburb with a large Muslim and Arab-American population. The show is about what its like to be a Muslim in America, and it touches on the discrimination they sometimes face. And that kind of discrimination is exactly whats happening here with Lowes, Lieu said. The Florida group sent three emails to its members, asking them to petition Lowes to pull its advertising. Its website was updated to say that supporters emails to advertisers make a difference. Suehaila Amen, whose family is featured on All-American Muslim, said she was disappointed by the Lowes decision. Im saddened that any place of business would succumb to bigots and people trying to perpetuate their negative views on an entire community, Amen, 32, told The Detroit News on Sunday. Lowes issued a statement Sunday apologizing for having managed to make some people very unhappy. The North Carolina-based company did not say whether it would reinstate advertising on the show. The apology doesnt go far enough, Lieu said. The senator vowed to look into whether Lowes violated any California laws and said he would also consider drafting a senate resolution condemning the companys actions. We want to raise awareness so that consumers will know during this holiday shopping season that Lowes is engaging in religious discrimination, he said. In addition to an apology and reinstatement of the ads, Lieu said he hoped Lowes would make an outreach to the community about bias and bigotry. A call to Lowes headquarters seeking comment about the boycott threat was not immediately returned Sunday. Individuals and groups have strong political and societal views on this topic, and this program became a lightning rod for many of those views, the companys statement said. As a result we did pull our advertising on this program. We believe it is best to respectfully defer to communities, individuals and groups to discuss and consider such issues of importance. Lieus office said a decision was expected Wednesday or Thursday on whether to proceed with the boycott. Dawud Walid, Michigan director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said his group felt extreme disappointment at Lowes capitulation to bigotry. Spotlight on PEOPLE Muslim prejudice Todays Birthday: Even though your earning potential looks pretty good in the year ahead, if youre not careful, you may be extravagant and end up broke. Keep everything in proper perspective so youll end up with a profit. Saggitarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Take nothing for granted and probe deeply when assessing any business dealings. Things could be far more complicated than they appear on the surface. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Dont allow yourself to be unduly influenced by the advice and opinions of some flamboyant friends, especially if it causes you to ignore your own instinctual judgment. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Fatigue after a busy weekend could cause you to let your attention span and work habits slip somewhat. Remember, carelessness increases the chances of mishap. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Dont put yourself in a position where you have to gamble on the abilities and/or skills of another. If they cant live up to whats necessary, youll go down with them. Aries (March 21-April 19) It behooves you to get jobs you dislike out of the way first, while you have the energy to handle your disdain for doing them. Theyll be 10 times harder to do when youre bushed. Taurus (April 20-May 20) What you say and what you mean are likely to be two totally different things, especially if youre playing games with yourself. Be honest with others and with yourself. Gemini (May 21-June 20) It isnt likely to be a particular expenditure that throws your budget out of kilter; its apt to be all the little, thoughtless purchases that cause a ruckus. Try to be more careful. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Unless youre just openly playing around with friends, sincerity is always essential when dealing with others. Shrewd ploys will be unmasked and could tarnish your reputation. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Forgo all small talk about things you know should be kept quiet, even when you think no one important is listening. There is always somebody who will squeal and make you look bad. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Its foolish to hang out with anyone who historically expects more from you than theyre prepared to give back in return. Someone may take you for everything youve got. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Feeling both ambitious and restless at the same time could be cause for concern, because that combination tends to make you spread your forces too thin. You could end up with nothing. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Get your facts straight and dont jump to conclusions based on juicy but faulty information. Assess developments in a logical, realistic manner, without adding any kind of fanfare.

Domestic revenues tumbled to a 2011 low of about $77 million this weekend, when the starfilled, holiday-themed romance New Years Eve debuted at No. 1 with a weak $13.7 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. Its the worst weekend in more than three years, since the weekend after the Labor Day holiday in 2008, when revenues amounted to $67.6 million, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com. And it comes after an $81 million total a week earlier that had been this years previous low. Its unbelievable how bad it is, said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. Jonah Hills comedy The Sitter opened at No. 2 with just $10 million. Divided by this years average ticket price of $7.96, the combined $158 million haul means only an estimated 19.8 million people went to the movies the past two weekends. Based on the average ticket price, this years top-grossing film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, drew more people all by itself over opening weekend. The two lowest-grossing back-to-back weekends of the last decade came amid the nations shock after the 2001 terrorist attacks, when one of the last things on peoples minds was catching a film. Revenues those two weekends totaled just $126 million; divided by 2001s average ticket price of $5.65, that means 22.3 million people went to the movies those weekends right after Sept. 11 2.5 million more than over the last two weekends. A couple of bad weekends dont make a trend, yet domestic revenues have been lagging. Alec Baldwin
B6 M ONDAY, D ECEMBER 12, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT If you have a regular partner with whom you discuss the game, you probably spend most of your time talking about constructive bidding. But you defend as often as you declare. If you take every trick you should when on defense, you will be unbeatable unless the rest of your game stinks, of course! There are three legal signals: attitude, count and suit-preference. An attitude signal says whether you like a suit. If you play an unnecessarily high card, you are showing a positive attitude about that suit; if you play your lowest card, you are denying interest in that suit. Attitude signals occur when your side leads a high honor to break open a suit, or when you are discarding from a suit neither side has yet led. Lets look at examples of each today and tomorrow. Against four spades, West leads the heart ace. How should the defense go? South opens three spades, showing a decent seven-card suit and five to 10 high-card points. West has an automatic takeout double. And North should raise to four spades. Showing his clubs might give East the opportunity to advance with four diamonds or four hearts. From the dummy, it ought to be obvious that the defenders need to win four red-suit tricks. East must get the defense started well by signaling with his heart nine. This cannot be the start of a high-low (echo) with a doubleton (which would give South five hearts), so West knows that it shows the queen, the honor touching the two promised by his lead. At trick two, West underleads the heart king, putting East on lead for the lethal diamond shift through Souths king.

It was my second marriage and his third. Henry thinks he is easy to get along with, but I find it difficult to communicate with him. If he doesnt like what you say, you are wrong. Last year, Henry had an affair, and we went for counseling. He claims I forced him into the affair because I didnt give him enough affection. However, one night he casually mentioned that he also had cheated on his second wife. Even after months of counseling, he didnt change his thinking. He stopped seeing the counselor because he would simply sit there and comment about how I wont change. Ive told him it takes two, but Henry thinks hes fine as is. Henry has some erectile dysfunction issues for which he takes medication, and I continue to see the counselor for my own issues. I do love my husband, but find it difficult to trust him, especially since he still considers the Other Woman a friend. I want to have a normal marriage, but I cannot get him to bend just a little more to be a real participant. Do you have any advice for me? Just Plain Lonely Dear Lonely: Even someone you love isnt necessarily marriage material. A man who cannot be faithful, who insists that he is always right and who refuses to take the necessary steps to work on a relationship is not a good bet for a lasting future. Henry has made it clear that he is not going to change. You must decide if you can live with him the way he is or if you are better off without him. Were glad you are still seeing your counselor. This is one of the issues you can discuss. Dear Annie: My older sister devotes Sundays to fatherdaughter time. She phones Dad to let him know what the plans are, but my father never passes the word to me, and neither does my sister. According to her, its understoodthat Im invited, but I dont feel comfortable inviting myself. One time when I decided to join them, I went to the restroom, and they left without me. My sister claimed it was miscommunicationand thought I wasnt planning to come. Weve been to several wine festivals together and have had a great time, so I was surprised when one came up and they went without mentioning it to me. I was hurt and angry. Finding a picture on Facebook of my father, sister and brother-in-law having a great time there was a slap in the face. My sister thinks its ridiculous that I insist on an invitation. Other people tell me Im loads of fun to be around. Am I wrong to want a hey, lets go,or should I just tag along regardless? LeftOut Sister Dear Left Out: You are family. You are allowed to tag along on family outings without an engraved invitation, especially when your sister has already made it clear that you are welcome to do so. Please dont let your sibling issues spoil these special times with your father. If you wish to attend, make your intentions clear, and then be the loads of fungal you are and have a good time. Dear Annie: Twin in Texas said her brother in New York is raising two grandsons. He not only shows extreme favoritism toward one of them, but the unfavored child sleeps in a windowless storage room. As a licensed architect, I can tell you it is illegal to use this storage room as a bedroom for two reasons: First, a bedroom needs two means of egress in case of fire. The second reason is that the code requires a window for light and ventilation with specific requirements on the size for each purpose.

26-toed cat GREENDALE, Wis. In a reversal of fortunes, a once-unwanted cat has come to the rescue of an animal shelter in need of a new home. However, this orange-andwhite tabby named Daniel is no typical cat. He has a nearrecord 26 toes, a phenomenon that is helping the nonprofit Milwaukee Animal Rescue Center raise money to relocate to a new building. Normal cats have 18 toes, but Daniel has two extra on each foot due to a genetic mutation called polydactylism. Officials at the center found out their rent at a Milwaukeearea mall was being doubled Jan. 1. So, the shelter is buying a new building and is seeking small donations of $26 or $1 per toe. Theyve collected enough so far to secure the financing with about $80,000 raised since Oct. 24, but they hope to raise $120,000 by Dec. 23 so they can become even more financially stable. About $50,000 of the money raised has come from $26 donations. Ive always been a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and this is definitely the case, said Amy Rowell, owner of Milwaukee Animal Rescue Center in Greendale. She found Daniel in October at animal control when she went to pick up another cat. As she bent down to that cats cage, Daniel stuck his paw out and poked her head. He was very clearly saying, I need to be rescued, Id like to be your friend, please pay attention to me, she said. And when a sign is that obvious, we tend to not ignore it. The shelter takes in animals that might otherwise be euthanized. Daniel was originally going to be adopted out, but Rowell has decided to keep him as a shelter mascot. Daniels 26 toes two shy of the Guinness World Records number dont seem to affect his cat activities. He runs and he plays and he climbs, he uses a scratching post. He seems to be not bothered by it at all, Rowell said. Family historyATHOL, Mass. A woman is on the hunt for history after her friends discovered centuries-old Massachusetts genealogy records when they bought the contents of an abandoned Florida storage unit. Debbie Meyers of Tampa said the records trace several families lineage back to the 1500s, and include people from western Massachusetts towns that were evacuated and flooded to make way for the Quabbin Reservoir. Meyers told the Worcester Telegram the storage company wont disclose the previous owners name. But her research into the photos, records, family Bibles and other items strongly suggests it was a woman who originally lived in one of the so-called lost towns under the Quabbin, and who died in 2007. Meyers hopes to find a family member to take the items, or a historical society that might be interested. Cards from gravePITTSBURGH The holiday cards from ad man Bob McCully were truly a special delivery from beyond the grave. About 400 people recently received the macabre but humorous greetings from McCully, who died in August at 88, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Friday. The former Pittsburgh advertising executive is pictured on the front of the card talking on the phone in an office. Hello, please dont call, it reads. I recently moved to a quiet neighborhood ... Inside, the card says: My new place doesnt have a phone and our gates close after dark. Pictures show the gates at Allegheny Cemetery in Lawrenceville and McCullys tombstone. Friends say a relative produced the card, which generated a mix of emotions for longtime McCully friend David Newell. It was the strangest feeling getting that card. It was almost eerie. But when I opened it, I laughed out loud. It was the ultimate Christmas card, Newell said. McCully often performed locally in satirical musical revues and was known for his darkly funny Christmas greetings. For several years, Newell said, cards were written from the perspective of McCullys former dog, Rolf. This years card might be the most memorable of all. Faked obituaryBROOKVILLE, Pa. Authorities in northwestern Pennsylvania say a man published an obituary for his living mother in a ploy to get paid bereavement time off from work. Relatives called The Jeffersonian Democrat newspaper in Brookville after the obit appeared to report the woman was actually alive and well. The woman herself then visited the paper. Brookville police charged 45year-old Scott Bennett on Tuesday with disorderly conduct. Democrat editor Randy Bartley said he accepted the obituary in good faith after being unable to confirm the funeral arrangements at press time. He told The Derrick newspaper Friday the woman was very understanding. Police Chief Ken Dworek said Bennett wrote up the memorial notice because he didnt want to get fired for taking time off.Mitten campaign LANSING, Mich. Michigan and Wisconsin have thrown off the gloves and are engaged in hand-to-hand combat in a debate about which of them looks more like a mitten. Hey, Wisconsin, get real!! The Mitten is ours!! tweeted one Michigan resident upset the state across Lake Michigan is trying to usurp a shape so iconic it can be picked out by orbiting spaceships. Noted another, Only one state has Mitten Mojo! Alex Beaton of the Awesome Mitten website spotted the knitmitten shaped like Wisconsin on the Travel Wisconsin website this week and kicked off the bare-knuckled offensive against what she saw as a mitten impostor. People in Michigan, we do identify ourselves so closely with the Mitten State, Beaton said of the states Lower Peninsula. Were Americas high five! But Tom Lyons, who works in public relations in Neenah, Wis., said Michigan residents shouldnt be getting their yarn in a twist over Wisconsins mitten theme for its winter tourism campaign. Wisconsin is the left mitten. Michigan is the right mitten. Even children know that one mitten doesnt cut it when it comes to Midwest winters, he said. Lyons formerly worked in Door County Wisconsins thumb region and said he often holds up his left hand when locating state places for others. We complement each other and its not our fault that their thumb is smaller, he said, taking a lighthearted jab at Wisconsins neighbor across Lake Michigan. Were very similar and they should be flattered. B8 M ONDAY, D ECEMBER 12, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE Classifieds Classifieds Classifieds In Print and Online All The Time!
