Tampa Tribune lays off 165The Tampa Tribune is laying off 165 more employees as its parent company tries to further cut costs. The newspaper reported on its website Monday that the reductions at the Tribune and its community and weekly newspapers will total 16 percent of the total workforce. The layoffs also affect the digital product, TBO.com, but not News Channel 8, which is also owned by Virginia-based Media General and housed in the same building. Media General vice president John Schauss said the paper will continue to publish a daily print edition. Some affected employees said they were notified early Monday by telephone. S ANDRA F REDERICK Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Although the opinions varied on the issue of regulating Kings Bay, the common ground Monday night was that manatees are at the center of the debate. Nearly 150 people attended the City Council meeting to have their voices heard. Most wanted no part of the federal government controlling the waterway. City Manager Andy Houston said the city was opposed to the speed limits on Kings Bay, but not to the interaction with the manatees, which is a financial boost for the area. We are hoping they see the need to be flexible, reasonable and rational (with the ruling), he said before the start of the meeting. A few supporters of the ruling said the manatees and the people who use the water for recreational purposes, such as swimming, kayaking and snorkeling with the manatees, also need to be protected. They welcomed the outside influence.

Residents turn out in force to air views on proposed federal rules for Kings Bay Associated PressWASHINGTON Weary after a year of partisan bickering, lawmakers tried Monday to wrap up a sprawling $1 trillion-plus spending bill that chips away at military and environmental spending but denies conservatives many of the policy changes they wanted on social issues, government regulations and health care. The measure implements this summers hard-fought budget pact between President Barack Obama and Republican leaders. That deal essentially freezes agency budgets, on average, at levels for the recently completed budget year that were approved back in April. Drafted behind closed doors, the proposed bill would pay for the war in Afghanistan but give the Pentagon just a 1 percent boost in annual spending, while the Environmental Protection Agencys budget would be cut by 3.5 percent. The bill also covers everything from money to combat AIDS and famine in Africa, patrolling the U.S.-Mexico border, operations of national parks, and budget Feds look to spend $1,000,000,000,000+ Bill reflects GOP, Democrat compromise C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterLECANTO French fries come from potatoes. Not a lot of schoolchildren know that, said Dale McClellan, Monday at a meeting of the Agricultural Alliance of Citrus County. The alliance wants to take more information about agriculture to the classroom, and has discussed ways of doing so with Sandra Sam Himmel, superintendent of schools, who went to the meeting to share ideas. First and foremost, Himmel told the alliance that funds were tight when starting a new program. There is just not a lot of money in the state right now, Himmel said. A lot of the programs have been cut in other districts. Although Citrus County has had to make some cuts, no programs had been cut out completely. Himmel said she took a strong stance to protect programs. When we go to finance meetings, they know that they do not bring up to me any of the programs reduction, Himmel said. The cuts made to the athletic program, for example, were in team travel destinations and the number of coaches on a team. Himmel said she was a strong believer in school programs. I believe in my heart that all these programs are some reasons that some of these kids come to school, Himmel said. Some kids wouldnt come to school if we didnt have athletes, arts and agriculture. Himmel described the county as a four-A district. We are all about School superintendent, ranchers talk education Himmel: Despite budget cuts, district still backs agriculture Sam Himmel Citrus County schools superintendent.

After eight years of beating my head against the wall, Im done with it, he said at the time. Not so fast, councilman. The marina project is alive and well, thanks to the citys new partial ownership of the Three Sisters Springs property that appears to give the city permission to build 24 boat slips at a refurbished marina at Kings Bay Park. The city council, sitting as the community redevelopment agency board, voted unanimously Monday night to spend $12,000 for a consultant to provide a preliminary design, cost and opinion on potential permitting hurdles. Kitchen, who lives on a boat docked at Petes Pier, has long believed a city marina would attract tourists to Crystal River. He said recent visits that he and City Manager Andy Houston made to Dunedin and Tarpon Springs only reinforced the thought that boaters traveling from the Panhandle to Tampa Bay would find Crystal River an appealing stopover. We feel Crystal River could be a destination stop in the Big Bend, he said. Marina plan could be resurrected Kitchen: Changes in ownership make once-dead project feasible Sam Himmel Crystal River councilman.

academics, athletics, arts and agriculture, Himmel said. I believe its our best dropout prevention program we have. Agriculture has been a large feature in county schools. We are now the owner of a six-pig hotel building at Citrus High, Himmel said. Were just waiting for the bus drivers to come in one morning and tell us how bad it smells, but I guess theyve got septic tanks and all that good stuff. All the high schools also had greenhouses, Himmel said. The district was open to talks with the Agriculture Alliance to teach more about where food comes from, Himmel said. However, aside from limited funding, the district also has time constraints. Im not going to defend anything that we do, but Im going to tell you that when you take a new program to teachers, especially in elementary, they just, like, cringe because when we looked at our calendar the other day, out of the 180 days of school for kids to come to school, 96 days of those were testing because of all the mandates, Himmel said. Teachers are under a lot of pressure now. Theyre starting to be graded on what their kids do on oneday, two-day tests. So thats why sometimes theyre reluctant. One possibility would be to incorporate the agriculture program into science teaching time, Himmel suggested, as it would give students hands-on learning. We believe in these programs, Himmel said. That Awesome Ag Day to me is something that we can expand on. The alliance piloted a program earlier this year to teach children where their food came from. A film of Awesome Ag Day was shown at the meeting. It recorded the event on July 22, when 85 Camp Fusion participants aged 6 through 10 got to grow their own pizza, while learning where all the ingredients, including the box, came from. Dorothy Pernu, marketing director for Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center, reported the fundraising results of Movember, a campaign to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer. At the Dec. 1 party at Burkes of Ireland in Crystal River, celebrity bartenders state Rep. Jimmie T. Smith and Citrus County Commissioner Rebecca Bays raised $1,050 in tips. With donations and food sales, Pernu said, $1,701.50 was donated to the Movember Foundation. Forthcoming events for alliance members include the Downtown Inverness Farmers Market on Saturday and AGRItunity Trade Show from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the West Central Florida Agricultural Education Center at 7620 State Road 471, Bushnell on Jan. 28. Market Day at Heritage Village, Crystal river, takes place on the second Saturday throughout the year. The next meeting for the alliance will be at 8 a.m. Jan. 9.

A spokeswoman for House Appropriations Committee Chairman Harold Rogers, R-Ky., said that bargainers had struck an agreement but would not formally unveil it until Tuesday. A House vote is expected Thursday and the Senate is likely to follow in time to meet a midnight Friday deadline before a stopgap funding measure expires. The generally smooth, businesslike negotiations on the omnibus spending bill contrasts with the ongoing partisan brawl over Obamas demand that Congress extend jobless benefits and a cut in the Social Security payroll tax. The House is slated to vote on a GOP-friendly version of the payroll tax cut Tuesday; negotiations with the Democratic-controlled Senate on a compromise measure have yet to begin. The spending measure, meanwhile, is likely to go over like a lead balloon among tea party conservatives, many of whom believe the August budget and debt compromise didnt cut enough. Last month, 101 House Republicans opposed a smaller bundle of spending bills. Conservative ire is likely to be magnified once the negotiating outcome regarding dozens of GOP policy riders is finalized. Republicans larded the measures with provisions aimed at rolling back Environmental Protection Agency rules, such as regulations on coal ash, large-scale discharges of hot water and greenhouse gases from electric power plants, and emissions from cement plants and oil refineries. The most controversial riders are sure to be dumped overboard due to opposition from Obama and Democrats controlling the Senate. But Democrats realize that they have to show some flexibility to win GOP votes in the House. That means Democrats are likely to accept, reluctantly, a rider that blocks the city of Washington, D.C., from funding abortions for poor women. Well get dozens of riders for industries and the social conservatives, said Jennifer Hing, spokeswoman for the House Appropriations Committee. In addition to the cut in EPA funding, foreign aid spending also would drop and House lawmakers would absorb a 6 percent cut to their office budgets. House Appropriations Committee Chairman Harold Rogers, R-Ky., was pushing until the end to block clean water rules opposed by mining companies that blast the tops off mountains, while House leaders pressed riders to block the Obama administrations 2009 policy lifting restrictions on travel and money transfers by Cuban-Americans to families remaining in Cuba. Meanwhile, Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., abandoned efforts to require the Consumer Product Safety Commission to issue tough new rules on window blind cords that can strangle children and tiny but powerful batteries that can harm small children if ingested. On spending, the measure generally consists of relatively small adjustments to thousands of individual programs. Agencies like the Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement will get a boost within the Department of Homeland Security, while GOP defense hawks won additional funding to modernize the U.S. nuclear weapons arsenal. The troubled, overbudget next generation F-35 fighter plane program would be largely protected. Democrats won a modest increase in funding for schools with large numbers of disadvantaged students. said. There are also special animals that live here and over the years they have come here and need to be protected. Capt. Mike Dunn said he is on the water 24/7 and sees many unsafe conditions from boaters using the river and bay. I am hoping it doesnt come to a red-light situation, where someone has to be killed before they put up the red light, he said. Spivey also encouraged the council to think about what they are opposing. Ultimately, she said, they are going to harm the economic growth of the area, forcing tourists to move elsewhere for encounters with manatees. But the majority of the people who ventured to city hall wanted no part of the federal government determining the fate of Kings Bay. Sharon Kerner and Tony Evans, both of Crystal River, said they wanted to be better educated about the issue. The community can manage on its own without the influence of the federal government, Kerner added. Bill Hudson spent his time outside the meeting handing out information about saving the bay from federal tentacles. We are the real root of the evil, he said in an animated voice. Weve domesticated these animals and coddled them over the years so they associate people being around as food. With that said, he wants the government to find a way to redirect the sea cows to a different area of the channel so they wont migrate to the bay and prohibit homeowners from using the natural resource. Local business owner Steve Lamb, also a board member with Save Crystal River, a newly formed nonprofit opposing the regulation of the bay by USFWS, said Congress has directed all federal agencies to coordinate with local government because they recognize that local authority must be consulted and involved in the decisionmaking process. Our concerns have been heightened by the breach of trust recently exhibited by the USFWC as it relates to the Three Sisters Springs Management Plan, Lamb said during his presentation to the council. We have no confidence that the USFWC will not exceed and expand their regulatory authority if they are allowed to seize Kings Bay, all of its connecting tributaries and residential canals. Jewel Lamb placed several ads in the Chronicle to encourage people to attend the Monday night meeting. She made it clear she does not want a refuge area in Kings Bay. I am a manatee lover, she said. They (the federal government) need to go somewhere else to fix a problem. There is no problem here.

SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER It is being billed as a David vs. Goliath battle a grassroots movement from little ol Citrus County taking on the federal government, in the form of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, to stop the erosion of local rights on Kings Bay. Monday they converged by the dozens on City Hall to register support for the citys effort to vanquish proposed U.S. Fish and Wildlife rules for the protection of the manatees which also call the bays warm spring waters home. Also present at the city council meeting were locals who stand wholeheartedly with the proposed rules and think they will prove a boon for the beloved sea cows. A fledging group called Save Crystal River wants to be the vanguard to formulate a legal framework to stop the seizure of the bay by the federal government and to serve as an example for others trying to defend their local turf from the feds. They presented the thinking behind their framework to officials during a highly charged hearing Thursday. Among other things, Save Crystal River believes the proposed rules are based on false premises that the Florida Manatee is a natural resource subject to regulation by the United States Government. According to a release circulated by the group prior to Mondays meeting, they cite case law they believe buttresses their notion that Floridas waters and its natural resources, including the manatees, were deeded by Congress to the state within nine nautical miles of the Gulf Coast in 1953. They also believe rules for the states waterways should come from the state, and not the federal government. The controversial governmental proposal was unveiled by officials in June, and it calls for, among other things, the area around Buzzard Island, popularly known as the sport zone, to become a slow zone for boaters in a bid to protect the sea cows from propeller injuries and deaths. Officials say the slow speeds are necessary to protect manatees from fast boats. The current speed limit in the sport zone is 35 mph. Crystal River and County officials are on record about their intentions to seek legal action if the proposed rules are implemented. Public input on the proposal ended last August and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has yet to make a decision on the matter, but many believe a verdict is imminent. Chuck Underwood, spokesman for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, whose office will make the determination, had hoped a decision would come before the manatees returned en masse to their winter nesting waters in November. Underwood had said in August that three outcomes were likely: Modifying the plan, saying we can take away rules, but cant make it more severe; Withdrawing the proposal entirely; or, Going ahead with the proposed plan.

Cocoa Beach After 45 years, man finds rings ownerA central Florida man who found an engraved sapphire ring 45 years ago has finally matched it with its owners family. Last week, Richard Winchester returned to the Air Corps Advanced Flying School class ring to 82year-old Samuel J. Taylor after a search that lasted decades. A recent Florida Today story led Winchester to Taylor, whose father died in 1958. His daughter-in-laws mother saw the story and pointed it out. Turns out, the mystery was solved somewhat. Taylor has no idea why his father was in the Everglades, where Winchester found the ring in 1966. But he knew his father graduated from the school in 1921, which was engraved on the ring. Winchester said hell miss the ring, but wanted to find the owner before he grew older.Hollywood Woman celebrates 104th birthday A Hollywood woman said avoiding sugar, salt and dairy has helped live a healthy, long life. Ida Ginsberg also said shes never smoked or had a drink in her life. She turned 104 on Monday. According to the South Florida Sun Sentinel Ginsberg lived part of her life in New York City and moved to Florida in 1969. She still lives on her own. She also recommends dancing. Ginsberg has five grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. She planned to celebrate her birthday at home with cake and her loved ones. Orlando Two men injured in interstate shooting Two men are being treated with non-life threatening injuries at a hospital following a shooting between two cars traveling on a busy interstate in central Florida. Orange County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Ginette Rodriguez said the men were shot just after 3 a.m. Sunday near an exit on Interstate 4. Both men were taken to the hospital. Rodriguez told the Orlando Sentinel that the shooting happened after an altercation at a downtown nightclub. No further information has been released and no arrests have been made. From staff and wire reports Page A3 TUESDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterA year after the Inverness Farmers Market started, survey results show it is filling a need in the community. At Mondays meeting of the Agricultural Alliance of Citrus County, Matt Lenhardt, extension agent horticulturalist, reported the results of the Farmers Market Economic Impact Survey of the venue that began in November 2010. Its been doing really good for the first year, Lenhardt said. Last month, Lenhardt went around to almost every vendor and explained the survey. The vendor participation has increased, Lenhardt said. We started out with about 12. Now were up to about 25 or 30 during the peak season when there is a lot more growinggoing on. It slows down a little bit in the summertime. Having more vendors helped the market. Thats a nice increase, Lenhardt said. People want to be there. The agricultural alliance and the county extension office share a booth at the market for offering outreach information. Just from our booth alone, Agri Alliance and Extension, we had more than 700 questions, Lenhardt said. The survey was based on 14 vendors because Lenhardt wanted to make sure the vendors had participated in at least six market days to show a pattern. All of these vendors participated in at least 11 of the markets, Lenhardt said. That shows consistency with the vendors. Without asking for specific money amounts, Lenhardt asked vendors to detail their business percentages. He asked if overall business had increased, and by how much. Ninety-two percent said yes; 64 percent have seen a 20 percent overall increase in sales from the first farmers market to the present, Lenhardt said. A full 100 percent responded that they have repeat customers. They have the same people coming back, which is good, Lenhardt said. Ninety-two percent of surveyed vendors responded that the farmers market was where they did their business. Not a lot of them have standalone businesses outside of this, Lenhardt said. For 92 percent, this is where they go and sell their produce. And theyre from Citrus County, keeping the dollar local. At least 50 percent of vendors offer agriculture-related products: fruits, vegetables, honey and nursery plants. Some offer woodworking. They are not just selling vegetables, but offer a little bit broader range, Lenhardt said. Ninety-two percent responded they were turning a profit at their booths. There is supporting research from around the country that farmers markets make an impact on the local economy, Lenhardt said. The next market will be from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Inverness Government Center.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916. Survey: Farmers market a success S HEMIR W ILES Staff writer CRYSTAL RIVERW hen times are tough, something as simple yet as precious as a family portrait can fall into the pile of wishes while necessities like food, clothing and shelter take priority. However, the Citrus County Florida Photographers Group and the Crystal River United Methodist Church, decided to make wishes come true for a number of Citrus County residents Saturday when they hosted Citrus Countys inaugural Help-Portrait event. Founded by celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart, Help-Portrait is a global movement of photographers using their skills, time and resources to give back to their communities by providing free portraits to those less fortunate. Photographers all over the world rolled up their sleeves and got snapping Saturday to give individualsand families the special holiday gift of a professional photograph. Local photographer Jeffrey Camp, a member of the Citrus County Florida Photographers Group, organized the local event, which was held inside the Crystal River United Methodist Church. Camp said he was inspired to host the event after seeing a video about Help-Portrait on YouTube. Already a member of the Citrus County Florida Photographers Group, a Facebook group comprised of nearly 200 local photographers, Camp presented the idea to host a local Help-Portrait to the group. And the group responded positively, he said. He then enlisted the help of his church, Crystal River United Methodist Church, and got the word out to several local agencies such as The Path Shelter, Mission in Citrus, the Family Resource Center, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County and the Salvation Army about the free event. By 9 a.m., all the volunteers were in place and ready to go. In addition to the photo areas, small stations were set up where volunteers styled hair and applied makeup, giving the entire event the feel of a true photo session. It was anticipated the photographers would serve more than 200 people who would leave with two 5-by-7 prints. Camp described the portraits as gifts of joy. Its a phenomenal thing, he said. Its giving and getting. Its what the season is all about. Before Dr. Regina Obney became a doctor, she was a barber for 21 years. She offered up her skills and time for the day because it seemed to be more important than anything I had going on. A strong believer in giving back to the community and being compassionate, she said she felt volunteering for the event was a wonderful opportunity to be of service to the community. She also said offering the portraits was a great way to help capture memories for people who do not have the means to do it themselves. Lisa Bower, armed with an arsenal of makeup and brushes, found out about Help-Portrait through Facebook and quickly offered her makeup ideas to help the cause. While the pace in the morning was slow, she anticipated things would pick up by the afternoon. For Bower, being able to make people smile and feel good makes her day. Its just a great thing, Bower said. Waiting for her daughter, who was in the process of getting her hair and makeup done, Teresa Wright said it had been awhile since she and her children Katie, 8, and Dustin, 11 had taken a photo together. As they get older, she said, it would get harder to do these sorts of activities together as a family. You know how teenagers are, she said with a laugh. When asked what brought her out to the event, she said she just wanted to participate to help spread the word about Help-Portrait. I just think its a nice thing to do, she said. Pauline McKee sat in the makeup chair, undergoing a slight transformation before sitting in front of the camera to take a photo with her neighbor. The Hernando resident who recently moved from Pennsylvania said she came to the church for cookies when she noticed all the commotion and decided to participate. I think its nice, she said. We dont have things like this in Pennsylvania. By the afternoon, Camp expected to field even more people from both the Path and Mission in Citrus. But by the end of the day, he just hoped to see everybody leave with a smile on their face and a couple of photos in hand. The saying is, A picture is worth of a thousand words, but what is a picture worth? Its worth so much, he said.

C ATHYK APULKA Staff writerINVERNESS Jazz up the holiday season with Norman Bernard and the sounds of Southern Exposure at the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum in downtown Inverness. In the second performance of a four-part Jazz at the Museum concert series, the band will perform a Christmas-themed show titled Santas Jazzy Wonderland. The concert, which is sponsored by the Citrus County Historical Society, is 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 15, on the second floor of the museum. Doors open at 6 p.m. Deco Caf will provide appetizers, and a cash bar will be available. They are probably some of the best impromptu musicians that Ive seen in quite a while, Jim Davis, event coordinator, said as he described the band. Just a tremendous musicianship that they have. Davis said Norman Bernard is renown for his talents on the flugelhorn and trumpet. Some of his band members include Nelson Dellamaggiore on saxophone, flute and clarinet; Gary Kay on keyboard; Ron Wresler on base; J.R. Farley on percussion and vocalist Kim Evans. Nelson (Dellamaggiore) is incredibly well grounded from the classical and modern music style, he said. Hell pick out a snippet, and he will work it into a solo, and then Norman (Bernard) will comment on that back to him. Its really good jazz when it has that kind of dialogue going on about it, enough of it that sharp listeners will pick it up. The third concert in the series is a valentinethemed concert titled The Sweet Sounds of Jazz, on Feb. 9. The fourth concert, Made in America, will be on April 5, 2012, and will celebrate Jazz Appreciation Month. The band sounds great, he added. Its very enjoyable to hear, and it will make for an enjoyable evening as well. Tickets are $25 per concert, and the proceeds benefit the museum and its educational programs. For more information contact the historical society office at 352-341-6427 or 352-341-6488 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or at csociety@ tampabay.rr.com.Chronicle reporter Cathy Kapulka can be reached at 352-564-2922 or ckapulka @chronicleonline.com.

The hangup in 2008, when then-Mayor Kitchen led city officials in pursuing the marina, was the belief that additional boat slips would violate the countys manatee protection plan. Since then, however, the state approved the addition of 24 boat slips for a proposed development on the Three Sisters Springs property. The development didnt take place when a consortium of agencies, groups and citizens bought the 57-acre parcel to protect area springs and manatees. While the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is contracted to manage the property, the ownership is divided, with 70 percent belonging to the city of Crystal River and 30 percent owned by Southwest Florida Water Management District. Houston said the citys ownership should allow permitting for the 24 boat slips to transfer from the development that never took place to the city for a new marina. Kitchen proposed extending the existing 77-foot dock another 50 feet, providing a floating dock with boat slips. The existing dock houses boats for a dive shop that leases the property from the city. Houston said the lease expires in two years and he envisions leasing the property to a company that would manage the marina for the city. Kitchen said the building could be refurbished to provide a dive shop or other use, and restaurant. Preliminary estimates, Kitchen said, peg the cost at $182,000. Eventually, Kitchen said, the city could seek permits to dredge an area outside the marina for a mooring field. While the city could not force boats to anchor there, a mooring field would likely draw boats that now anchor in a portion of Kings Bay where manatees frequent, Kitchen said. Houston said he expects the consultant to have a report in 60 to 90 days. The report will include a general design, permitting tracks and cost estimates. Kitchen said hes heard concerns that the marina area may not be deep enough. He noted that a nearby commercial fishery sends crab boats through the area and that a 7to 9-foot natural channel now exists heading out into the river. We went from a project that people were skeptical about to a project I think is very doable, Kitchen said. Twenty-four months from now hopefully youll have our first transient boats tying up here.

Associated PressNEW YORK Forget the material things reindeer sweaters, clunky toys, stocking stuffers that end up as, well, stuff. How about a skydiving lesson, a spa pampering or a night at a cozy bed and breakfast? This holiday season, a lasting memory is worth a thousand knickknacks. With less money to spend in the weak economy, and with daily-deal sites like Groupon growing in popularity, more Americans are giving experiences instead of glitzy gifts. Think comfort and joy, not five golden rings. Instead of sneakers or electronic gizmos, Denice Bailey and her husband are treating their two teenage boys to a Dallas Cowboys game, dinner at a steakhouse and a family night in a hotel. Because its sure to cost hundreds of dollars, the parents let the boys choose between the night on the town and store-bought gifts. Bailey was surprised by their decision. That said a lot to me, that they are wanting that memory, that experience, says Bailey, from Abilene, Texas. That family time is for me as a mom the most precious gift I can have. Theres no reliable way to track how much shoppers are spending on experience gifts this year compared with last. Restaurants, spas and other businesses dont always know if people are buying their services as gifts or for themselves. But shoppers are expected to spend $80 million to $100 million on deal sites over the holidays as much as 10 times more than last year according to an estimate for North America from Yipit, a site that collects daily deals from across the Web. Deal sites get a lot of credit for bringing new and unusual experiences to the attention of people who might not have thought about them, says Dan Hess, CEO of Dealradar.com, another site that aggregates deals. Groupon, the biggest deal site, sold 650,000 of its Grouponicus deals the name is an apparent play on the secular Seinfeld holiday of Festivus in the four days after Thanksgiving, six times as many as last year. The company wouldnt give dollar amounts. LivingSocial, the No. 2 deal site, sold more than 281,000 vouchers during the first three days of its Days of Giving promotion about one and a half times what it sold last year. The number given as gifts has more than doubled. For those ready to take the plunge, there are as many options for experience-giving as Santa has elves. In New York, LivingSocial had a $100 deal for a wine-tasting and meatballcooking class taught by the chef of Little Owl restaurant. It sold out in an hour. In Austin, Texas, Groupon offered a package of classes valued at $2,300 for $999. Included: a five-hour pyrotechnics workshop, a stunt driving course and hand-to-hand-combat training. In Toronto, it offered dog-sledding lessons for two for $74, half off. While theres no way to tell how many of them were given as gifts, Sheri Bridges, a marketing professor at Wake Forest University, says experiences are the best gifts for the person who has everything. Something time-starved people dont have is quality time with people they love, she says. Kevin OConnor, 26, of Overland Park, Kan., found a spa massage on Groupon to give his girlfriend for Christmas. It normally goes for $132 but cost him $62. To add suspense, he plans to put the printed Groupon in a big box. She saw it on there but didnt want to buy it because it was some extra thing she didnt want to spend money on, he says. Kristen Vannice bought her boyfriend flying lessons on a glider, a small plane that runs without power using air currents. For $99 from the Soaring Society of America, she got him a lesson, instruction materials and a few months membership to a glider training group. He always talked about it kind of longingly, and I knew it was just the kind of thing he probably wouldnt get around to taking the initiative to do himself, says Vannice, 29, a doctoral student at Johns Hopkins School of Public Health in Baltimore. We rarely pamper ourselves with nice or new experiences. Still, as with any gift, givers of online daily deals have to proceed with caution. They come with expiration dates, and if your brother keeps hectoring you about whether youve taken that hot air balloon ride, it can get awkward. Plus, you can always take a necktie back, but returning a day of zip-lining is tricky without a time machine.

Asia Elvis monkey, psychedelic gecko among discoveries Associated PressHANOI, Vietnam A psychedelic gecko and a monkey with an Elvis hairdo are among 208 new species described last year by scientists in the Mekong River region of Southeast Asia, a conservation group announced Monday. The animals were discovered in a biodiverse region that is threatened by habitat loss, deforestation, climate change and overdevelopment, the WWF said in a report. The newly described species include a psychedelic gecko in southern Vietnam and a nose-less monkey in a remote province of Myanmar that looks like it wears a pompadour. While this species, sporting an Elvis-like hairstyle, is new to science, the local people of Myanmar know it well, the Switzerland-based group said in its report. The region is home to some of the worlds most endangered species, including tigers, Asian elephants, Mekong dolphins and Mekong giant catfish, the group said. This is a region of extraordinary richness in terms of biodiversity but also one that is extremely fragile, said Sarah Bladen, communications director for WWF Greater Mekong. Its losing biodiversity at a tragic rate. The Mekong flows through China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. In October, WWF announced Vietnam had lost its last Javan rhinoceros, making the 40 to 60 Javan rhinos living in Indonesia the last remaining members of their species. Forget fruitcake: Give skydiving lessons Associated Press A psychedelic gecko and a monkey sporting an Elvis-like hairstyle are among 208 new species described last year by scientists in the Mekong River region of Southeast Asia, a conservation group announced Monday. The monkey, discovered in Myanmar in 2010, is seen in an undated drawing provided by Fauna & Flora International.

Associated PressNEW YORK Worries over Europes debt troubles pushed U.S. government bond prices higher Monday after Moodys warned credit ratings of European Union countries could be cut in the coming months. The price of the 10-year Treasury note rose 43.7 cents for every $100 invested. The yield dropped to 2.02 percent from 2.07 percent late Friday. The rating agency Moodys said an agreement reached last Friday at a summit of European leaders lacked measures to shore up credit markets over the short term. Stocks markets in the U.S. and Europe fell sharply. Traders sold government bonds from Italy, Spain and other countries at the center of the regions ongoing debt crisis and shifted them into U.S. Treasurys, considered one of the few safe places for traders to park their cash. That strong demand helped the Treasury auction $32 billion in 3-year notes Monday afternoon. Banks and other large bond buyers placed bids for 3.62 times the amount offered, the strongest bidding at an auction of 3-year notes since Nov. 1990. The notes were sold to yield 0.35 percent. In other Treasury trading, the 30-year Treasury bond rose $1.03 per $100, and its yield fell to 3.06 percent from 3.11 percent. The two-year Treasurys yield remained unchanged at 0.23 percent. In the market for shortterm U.S. government debt, the three-month bill paid a 0.01 percent yield. B USINESS C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE Advance Capital I: Balanc p 15.67-.13 RetInc 8.66...

Fitch Ratings said the region will face a significant economic downturn as it wrestles with its sovereign debt crisis for another year or more. Moodys Investors Service said the summit produced few new measures. Guy LeBas, chief fixed income strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott, said the agreement kicks off a process that has a chance of solving the next crisis, not this one. The euro hit a 10-week low against the dollar, plunging nearly 2 cents. Yields on Italian bonds rose as investors fretted about that nations debt burden. European stocks fell. Treasury yields fell as investors shifted money into U.S. government debt. All 10 industry groups in the Standard & Poors 500 index fell, led by banks and energy stocks. Falling stocks outnumbered rising ones four-to-one on the New York Stock Exchange. Intel Corp. dragged the Dow Jones industrial average lower, falling 4 percent after the chipmaker said its fourth-quarter revenue will be lower than expected because of supply chain problems caused by massive flooding in Thailand. Intel is considered a bellwether for the computer industry because its chips are used in a wide range of products. Moodys said earlier in the day it will review the credit ratings of all European Union nations in the first quarter of next year. The statement doused optimism among investors that had lifted stocks and other risky investments. Prior to Monday, the S&P 500 had risen 8.3 percent over the past two weeks. Moodys said Europe remains in a critical and volatile stage. The pact, Moodys noted, does not address Europes immediate problem: the crushing debt loads of some nations and their rising borrowing costs. Last weeks agreement calls for tougher fiscal discipline among European countries and a central authority with the ability to punish those that spend too much. Financial stocks declined steeply. Investors fear that big banks might be damaged by the turmoil in Europe. Morgan Stanley fell 6.1 percent, Citigroup Inc. 5.4 percent. Bank of America Corp. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. posted the biggest and thirdbiggest losses in the Dow 30, falling 4.7 percent and 3.4 percent, respectively. Among the top corporate movers: Endo Pharmaceuticals Holdings Inc. jumped 6 percent after federal regulators approved a new form of one of its pain medications, extending its patent rights over the drug. Diamond Foods Inc. plunged 23 percent after reports of an investigation of its payments to walnut farmers. Vulcan Materials Co. shot up 15 percent, the most in the S&P 500, after Martin Marietta Materials Inc. made an unsolicited bid to buy the company for $4.74 billion in stock. Martin Marietta rose 1.2 percent.

O PINION Page A8 TUESDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2011 Thanks, Inverness We attended the Cooter Festival in Inverness last weekend and would like to thank the city and its manager, Frank DiGiovanni, for hosting this event. We would like to say the city made a wise choice in hiring Betty Lou Soape, the event planner, to organize the festivities. This seems like it would be such a formidable task, but everything seemed to go off flawlessly under her management. We would love to see more downtown activities each month. Perhaps you can get Ms. Soape on board for those, as well. It really had the hometown atmosphere the reason we moved here 40-plus years ago. The food and drink provided by Elegant Catering from the B&W Rexall in the VIP section was unsurpassed, as always. Band selection and music was great, too! A wonderful job by all those who worked behind the scenes. Sal and Donna Viglione Inverness Thank you! We would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire Board of Directors of the United Way of Citrus County for their very generous matching donation of $50,000 for the new distribution warehouse. Your response to our challenge demonstrates the depth and commitment of support for those in need in Citrus County. It is thanks to people and organizations like yours that we can continue to make such a significant impact on hunger in our county. It is no mystery that people living in poverty the working poor families with children, seniors living on tiny, fixed incomes and the homeless are the ones who face the travesty of hunger every day. We see these people our neighbors every single day. Working poor are two words that should not go together; it has always been a time-honored concept that if you work, you should not be poor. The sense of security from holding a job is absent for thousands of people in Citrus County and even those who have a job find they can barely support their families. They wait tables at restaurants where they cannot afford to eat, wash cars, but cannot afford to buy one, and care for children but do not make enough to hire a babysitter. It is because we know we must meet their needs that we are so very desperate and grateful for every donation. Thank you for caring enough to help. Diane Toto president, We Care Food Pantry F or weeks the media has complained that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has been shielded from probing interviews. The criticism is valid. With the exception of a recent Bret Baier interview on Fox News Channel, Romneys staffers have tried to preserve what they believe to be his inevitable nomination by allowing other GOP candidates to stand in the spotlight, garnering the most scrutiny. The criticism and Romneys failure to break away from the crowded Republican field has prompted him to do more interviews. In a telephone conversation following a speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) in Washington, I asked Romney why his candidacy has not resonated with Republican voters, spawning according to Jeremy Peters of the New York Times, ...a recurrent anybody but Mitt drumbeat from right-leaning pundits and media outlets... Romney, acknowledging he was the conservative alternative in 2008, said, I think people want to have a chance to have a look at the other people who are running this time and get to know them better. And while his poll numbers have not risen above 25 percent, he says he is pleased that he has ...always remained among the leading contenders. Romney predicts he will get the delegates he needs to win the nomination. To assuage doubts, he promised to select people (and judges) with the same philosophical qualities as conservative Justices Samuel Alito, John Roberts, Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia. I want men and women who are extraordinarily bright, who have a track record that can be thoroughly examined and who share my values. Of those values, selfreliance is one. In his speech to the RJC, Romney criticized the entitlement mentality of the Democrats and of those who look to government, rather than themselves for sustenance. So how would he break the addiction to government assistance, especially when, according to a recent Department of Agriculture report, 15 percent of Americans receive food stamps? How would he tackle high unemployment? Tax cuts and tax increases? With difficulty, he acknowledges, but hell appeal to patriotism: When people understand what is at stake the very nature of our country and our capacity to protect our freedom and provide prosperity for the next generation, then they will rally to the cause. Im not so sure. Just say no worked for some during the Reagan administration when Nancy Reagan appealed to the young not to take drugs, but once people are addicted to a government check they cant just check into rehab to get clean. Romney needs a supplemental strategy. As he campaigns around the country, he should seek out those who have overcome difficult circumstances with right personal choices and without government and present them to voters. Let Americans see that standing on your own two feet beats riding on Uncle Sams back. Last week, Rachel Rose Hartman, a journalist for Yahoo.com, reported on a conference call with members of the Republican National Committee in which they were warned to refrain from personal attacks against President Barack Obama, because such a strategy is too hazardous for the GOP Though the presidents job approval rating is low, voters still give high approval to Obama personally, Hartman writes. Does Romney feel he can attack Obama and not suffer for it? The president has been in office three years and his record is entirely fair game. I think the American people know his record is the worst weve seen since (Herbert) Hoover. I will be relentless in reminding Americans that (Obama) promised to hold unemployment below 8 percent, if we let him borrow $1 trillion. He did the borrowing, but unemployment has not been below 8 percent. If elected, Romney promises to reduce the size of the federal workforce by 10 percent, largely through attrition. He would cut off foreign assistance to countries like China, which he says gets $27 million from the U.S. annually, and to nations that oppose American interests. But back to the reason so many conservatives are reluctant to trust him. I ask Romney to finish this sentence: Conservatives will not be disappointed with me as president because... Because I share your values, he says, because I am a leader who knows how to get things done; because I love America and American principles with an unwavering and committed heart. Well see if that is enough for conservatives still hoping for an anti-Romney. The voting starts in Iowa in just over three weeks.

In October, FCWA customers received a public notice regarding the level of trihalomethanes (THM), informing them their water exceeded the maximum contaminant level by two parts per billion and one part per billion. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection gave FCWA 24 months to come into compliance. The FCWA plans to build a new plant for $3.5 million that customers will not be forced to pay higher rates to pay for, nor will they be required to hook up to the water supply lines. If this is truly the case, then the solution seems perfect. However, some people, including Commissioner Rebecca Bays, believe there may be more research to do. The public has a lot of questions, which were expressed at a meeting in the spring and again at a meeting earlier this month. We are sure a long-term solution is needed, and treatment is a temporary fix, according to FCWA officials. Residents remain skeptical, so it is up to the FCWA to show without reservation that their plan passes financial, environmental and political muster.

These two issues affect every resident of Citrus County. Why arent these issues placed on a referendum for the residents of Citrus County to approve or disapprove? The commissioners are supposed to represent the desires of the residents, not their personal agendas. Im asking all my friends to vote all these commissioners out of office and support any candidate that would place on a referendum any issue affecting all of the residents.Bad dog, heroic deputyI do not understand the comments concerning the deputy sheriff shooting the dog. Owning a dog or any pet is a wonderful thing, but many responsibilities come with pet ownership. It is not (only) food and water. But since you are responsible for the actions of the pet, they must be properly trained to live in society. This dog obviously was not, as it pushed open a screen door and attacked the deputy. It would be a safe assumption that this has happened before. The deputy was there to serve an arrest warrant on the young man. What is this nonsense about the size of the dog? I have been bitten by three dogs: a German shepherd, a Dalmatian and a Jack Russell. Only the bite from the Jack Russell required stitches. My opinion is, the sheriff should recognize the deputys abilities by presenting him with a sharpshooter award.Border patrolHey, heres something to consider. All these returning vets from Afghanistan and Iraq, lets make border agents out of them. We dont have to bring the U.N. to keep the Mexicans out. Thats an idea, isnt it?Taxing the lotteryIm calling the Chronicle in reference to your article about the Florida Lottery where scratch-off ticket sales are nearly 12 percent higher and the Powerball ticket sales have jumped up 11 percent higher. So imagine if we put tax on those and a tax on the winnings, how much revenue the state could bring in and help our states economy. Why dont they tax the lottery both ways, purchasing and all winnings? Even if its $1, pay tax.Dump desperado It takes a lot of guts for someone to dump all that garbage at the Citrus Springs recycling area. Someone else now has to clean up your mess. If I catch someone doing this, I will have them arrested. Pick it up, indeed I just had to comment on the response to Pick it up, and I agree so much. If you can read the labels, you can certainly stop and pick some stuff up. I do it myself on my walks with my dog. Dont want to just sit and look at it. Pick it up.

Man leaves $1M home to Uncle Sam A South Florida man willed his historic house worth $1 million to the U.S. government to help eliminate the countrys growing debt. The Miami Herald reported that Uncle Sam put the Coral Gables house up for auction Saturday. The winning bid was $1.175 million. The house belonged to James H. Davidson Jr., who lived there from his teenage years until he died last December at 87. He also left $1 million to the government. The Herald reported Davidson had nieces and nephews who live in the area. Barbara Perez was high bidder on the 1929 Spanish-style home. Officials said 700 people toured the home last week and 15 registered to participate in the auction. The government will auction off the contents on the home in January.Graduation rate rises to 80 percentTALLAHASSEE Floridas high school graduation rate continues to rise. Figures released Monday by the Florida Department of Education show the graduation rate increased to 80 percent in the 2010-11 school year. That number is 1 percent higher than the previous year, and nearly 10 percent higher than in the 2006-07 school year. Hispanic students saw the greatest gains, rising two points to 77 percent. The graduation rate includes those receiving standard or special diplomas within four years of starting high school. It does not include GED recipients. About 14 percent of the same group of students were retained or received a certificate of completion, and 5.5 percent were dropouts. The dropout rate for all high school students was 1.9 percent, down slightly from the previous year.Student arrested for having gun in car SANFORD A 17-year-old central Florida high school student was arrested for having a gun in her car at school. The Orlando Sentinel reported the student faces charges of bringing a firearm onto a school campus and possession of drug paraphernalia.

A landscaping crew working near the pond spotted the vehicle Sunday afternoon as police were starting a missing persons investigation. From wire reports Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Floridas experimental, five-county Medicaid managed care program is providing such poor service that the state should suspend plans for expanding it statewide, according to a report released Monday by a liberal-leaning think tank. A spokeswoman for the state agency that oversees Medicaid responded in an email that the report provides an incomplete and inaccurate picture with respect to access. Managed care is provided mostly by private companies including health maintenance organizations that are paid a certain amount for participants regardless of how much service they use. Supporters say it will cut costs compared to the conventional fee-for-service plans that pay according to how much service each patient uses. Critics argue that reduces the quality of care because providers can make more money if they cut services. The Tallahassee-based Florida Center for Fiscal and Economic Policy notes in the report that it relied on claims information because the state has not yet made patient encounter data available although the experimental program began five years ago. Theres a problem, though, with using data on claims rather than visits, wrote Michelle Dahnke, a spokeswoman for the Agency for Health Care Administration. Multiple claims can be reported by visit, Dahnke wrote. Numbers of claims does not provide information about access to service. She wrote that primary care is commonly provided through managed care plans by paying a fixed amount per participant each month, making it inappropriate to use paid claims as a measure of access to care. The report says the claims information shows a wide variation in primary care utilization rates among various managed care plans available to Medicaid participants. The rate for one plan was only 46.8 services per 100 enrollees compared to 439.5 for another in the 2008-09 budget year. Likewise in the next year one plan had a utilization rate of just 44.1 services per 100 enrollees while another had 395.1. Reasonable variation in primary care utilization is to be expected, the report says. However, the magnitude of the differences among plan access rates is so pronounced as to preclude the possibility they can be explained as reasonable variation. Another finding was that access to primary care in the five participating counties was significantly worse than before the pilot program began and in the case of some plans alarmingly worse. The five counties are Broward in South Florida and Duval, Baker, Clay and Nassau in the Jacksonville area. Primary care access did improve over time but remained disturbing low in the five counties, the report says. The Republican-controlled Legislature last year passed a pair of laws that would phase-in managed care statewide but it is contingent upon receiving a waiver from the federal government, which has not yet made a decision. Associated PressST. PETERSBURG A flood of new visitors from Brazil and a stunning postoil-spill rebound by Panhandle beaches were bright spots in 2011 for a Florida tourism industry that has weathered some hard times the past couple of years. The $60 billion industry experienced modest growth this year, and officials expect a similar bump in 2012 as the nations economy continues to improve and the BP oil spill that fouled the shores of Gulf Coast states last year becomes a more distant memory. Numbers through September released by Visit Florida, the states tourism agency, shows the volume of travelers to the state is up around 5 percent over the same stretch in 2010, driven by double-digit gains in overseas visitors. With a strong fourth quarter, Florida is on track to top 84 million visitors this year, the most since before the Great Recession when the industry was accustomed to solid growth year after year. Final tallies for 2011 will be out early next year. Tourism is Floridas leading industry, employing around 1 million people and accounting for more than onefifth of the states total sales tax revenue. The (2011) numbers are a pretty clear indication that although were not totally out of the economic challenges that weve been facing for the last three or four years, maybe people see a little bit of a light at the end of the tunnel, Visit Florida chief Chris Thompson said. Latin America is always a strong sector for Florida tourism, but the number of visitors from Brazil a country of 192 million people currently enjoying a booming economy is up by at least a third. Through September more visitors and dollars have come to Florida from Brazil than from the United Kingdom, which usually runs second to Canada in number of overseas tourists. Whats happening is that (Brazilians) who have never been able to travel abroad before because they didnt have the means financially all of a sudden do have the means, said Denise Arencibia, director of Latin America outreach for Visit Florida. The other pleasant surprise was the Florida Panhandle beaches, which along with other Gulf Coast shores suffered in 2010 either from tar balls and sheen from the BP oil spill or the false perception that the entire coastline was fouled by crude. The spill killed summer 2010 for Panhandle hotels, condos, restaurants and attractions. The post-spill bounce was fueled partly by reparation money from BP to promote Gulf Coast beaches and some good luck tropical storms and hurricanes stayed away. Panama City set a new record for bed-tax revenue, which was up 20 percent over 2009, the previous best year. Tampa Bay-area beach hoteliers were wringing their hands in the late summer of 2010, plagued by the mistaken perception BP oil was going to wash up any minute. Theyre breathing a little easier after a surprisingly good year. Bed-tax revenue growth for the area was expected to be about 1 to 2 percent this year. Instead the number jumped nearly 8 percent for the 12-month period ending Sept. 30, said D.T. Minich, executive director of Visit St. Petersburg/Clearwater. I think there was some pent-up demand from people who had postponed or canceled their vacations, and I think we saw a return of people who may had gone somewhere else the year before because of the threat of oil, Minich said.

Minimum wage tops $10 in Ca. SAN FRANCISCO San Francisco will make history on Jan. 1 when it becomes the first city in the nation to top $10 for the minimum wage. Its only a 32-cent hike, from $9.92 to $10.24. But for many low-income workers its a psychological boost that will help them ring in the new year with more money in their pocket for daily necessities. San Franciscans passed a proposition in 2003 that required the city to increase the minimum wage each year, using a formula tied to inflation. Workers love it. But some employers say that when you combine a hike to minimum wage with the citys payroll tax, mandated medical care stipend and the nine days of paid sick leave, it can lead to layoffs.

Nets owner challenges Putin Billionaire to run for Russian presidency Associated PressMOSCOW After a week of surprising challenges to his authority, Vladimir Putin faces a new one from one of Russias richest and most glamorous figures: The billionaire owner of the New Jersey Nets said he will run against him in Marchs presidential election. The announcement Monday by Mikhail Prokhorov underlines the extent of the discontent with Putin, who has dominated Russian politics for a dozen years first as president, then as prime minister. It comes on the heels of Saturdays unprecedented nationwide protests against Putin and his party, United Russia. Tens of thousands of people gathered in the streets to denounce alleged election fraud favoring United Russia in Dec. 4 parliamentary elections. The fraud and the partys comparatively poor showing in the elections losing about 20 percent of its seats, although it retained a narrow majority galvanized long-marginalized opposition forces to conduct a startling series of demonstrations, including an enormous rally of at least 30,000 in Moscow alone. In yet another challenge to Putin, his former finance minister, Alexei Kudrin, said Monday he was ready to work to form a new party. At a news conference announcing his candidacy, Prokhorov refrained from criticizing Putin or President Dmitry Medvedev, but he said society is waking up. Those authorities who will fail to establish a dialogue with society will have to go, he declared. Medvedev has promised on his Facebook page that the alleged vote fraud will be investigated. But Putins spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, predicted Monday the probe will show that little vote fraud occurred and that it had no effect on the outcome. Peskovs comment signaled that Putin who served as Russias president in 2000-2008 and stepped over to the premiership because of term limits is holding firm, despite the protests that were the largest in post-Soviet Russia. It is unclear how effective a challenger Prokhorov might prove to be. His wealth, estimated by Forbes magazine at $18 billion, and his playboy reputation may turn off voters who resent the gargantuan fortunes compiled by tycoons even as countless Russians struggled through the economic chaos of the 1990s after the Soviet Union collapsed. The 46-year-old bachelor is known for lavish parties and occasional scandal. He and some guests were arrested at a Christmas party in the French Alpine resort of Courchevel in 2007 for allegedly arranging for prostitutes; but he was soon released without charges. Prokhorov made his fortune in metals and banking and became majority stakeholder in the New Jersey Nets last year. Since then, he has traveled widely to build a global fan base for the team, in the process showing off his towering 6-foot-8 frame and excellent command of English. Asked if he thought Prokhorov could run a country, Nets coach Avery Johnson said he had many qualities. He is pretty smart. he has great leadership skills. When you are behind the scenes and you are talking to him, you know he is a special person. It wouldnt surprise me, Johnson said. Mikhail Prokhorov is running for Russian presidency. Oakland longshoremen sent home due to protests Associated PressOAKLAND, Calif. Most longshoremen at the Port of Oakland were sent home Monday after Occupy Wall Street demonstrators blocked entrances during a coordinated West Coast blockade effort. More than 1,000 Occupy Wall Street protesters blocked cargo trucks at some of the West Coasts busiest ports Monday, forcing terminals in Oakland, Calif., Portland, Ore., and Longview, Wash., to halt operations. Shipping companies agreed with workers that the protests created unsafe working conditions and released about 150 of the 200 workers on the morning shift at the Port of Oakland, said Craig Merrilees, spokesman for the International Longshore and Warehouse Union. Workers in unaffected parts of the port remained on the job. Several hundred people began picketing at the Port of Oakland before dawn and blocked at least two entrances. A long line of big rigs sat outside the gates, unable to drive into the port. Police in riot gear monitored the scene as protesters marched in an oval and carried signs with messages such as Labor and Occupy Unite, an invitation to the powerful dockworkers union to join their push against corporate greed. Two protesters trying to block trucks from entering the port were arrested when they did not obey a police order to leave, Oakland police Chief Howard Jordan said. Some longshoremen arriving for the morning shift at the two affected port terminals did not try to enter due to the safety concerns. Some also said they werent willing to cross the demonstrators picket lines. Protesters cheered and declared victory before dispersing when they learned about the partial shutdown. Another march on the port was planned later in the day. We shut down the Port of Oakland for the daytime shift and were coming back in the evening. Mission accomplished, said Oakland blockade organizer Boots Riley. Port spokesman Isaac Kos-Read said the facility remains open. Theres been disruptions throughout the morning shift. Weve done our best to minimize those disruptions, KosRead said. Weve kept the port largely operational. Its unclear whether the longshoremen will be paid for the missed work. Union officials say longshoremen were not paid after Occupy Oakland protesters blockaded the port Nov. 2. DeAndre Whitten, 48, a longshoreman for 12 years, said it was his understanding he would be losing about $500 in pay for the day. But he said he supported the protest effort. Im excited. It was way overdue. I hope they keep it up, Whitten said. I have no problem with it. But my wife wasnt happy about it. Occupiers take on ports Associated Press Protestors leave the Portof Oakland Monday after successfully blocking the entrances in Oakland, Calif. Hundreds of protesters blocked gates at some of the West Coasts busiest ports on Monday, delaying truck traffic in a day of demonstrations that organizers hope will cut into the profits of the corporations that run the docks.

Associated PressLONDON Doubts resurfaced Monday over Europes ability to solve its debt crisis and rescue the imperiled euro, as investors worried that plans for closer fiscal unity will bring little immediate relief and Britain warned the deal could face new political hurdles. British Prime Minister David Cameron was the only leader among the European Unions 27 members to refuse last week to join a plan under which nations submit their budgets for central EU review and limit the deficits they can run. As the rift between Britain, which has its own currency, and the 17 euro nations fed uncertainty about the deals implementation, ratings agencies Moodys and Fitch warned the plan would make little difference. The summit produced few new measures and Europe remains in a critical and volatile stage, Moodys said in a published report. It noted that the pact does not address Europes immediate problem: the crushing debt loads of some nations and their rising borrowing costs. The agreement kicks off a process that has a chance of solving the next crisis, not this one, warned Guy LeBas, chief fixed income strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott. Stocks plunged and the euro hit a 10-week low against the dollar as market confidence in the plan and Europes ability to end the crisis ebbed. On Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrial average dove as many as 243 points before closing down 163, while European stocks also closed sharply lower. Yields on Italian bonds rose to 6.76 percent, closing in on the 7 percent level that forced fellow eurozone nations Greece, Ireland and Portugal to take bailouts.

Syrian strike aims at economy Associated PressBEIRUT Syrians closed their businesses and kept children home from school Monday as part of a general strike, a powerful show of civil disobedience to pressure President Bashar Assad to end his 9-month-old crackdown on a popular uprising. The open-ended strike takes direct aim at the countrys already ailing economy. It is designed to erode Assads main base of support the new and vibrant merchant classes who have benefited in recent years as the president opened up the economy. If the economy continues to collapse, Assad could find himself with few allies inside the country, where calls are growing by the day for him to step down. The authoritarian president is already struggling under international isolation and suffocating sanctions. The opposition wants the strike to remain in force until the regime pulls the army out of cities and releases thousands of detainees.

The Lady Pirate midfielder blasted a shot from 30 yards out to find net behind Lecanto High Schools goalkeeper. The indirect kick gave Crystal River a 2-1 victory over county rival Lecanto (9-3-1) in a girls soccer match at Panthers Stadium. The shot came with under a minute left in the contest and with the score tied at 1. Dewhurst was surprised to end up as the heroine. It was my turn to kick one in, Dewhurst said. I thought she (the goalkeeper) was going to knock it away, but it ended up in the back. I feel great. We are not fond of each other (Crystal River and Lecanto). Im friends with a lot of them, but when we get on the field, it is completely different. We played great as a team. Less than 12 minutes earlier, Pirate forward Brooke Levins scored the games first goal to break a scoreless tie. Levins 13-yard blast was her 16th goal of the season. Jessica Reynolds assisted on the score. Lecanto answered with a goal of its on at the 10:27 mark as Brittany Putney booted one in from 20 yards out to knot the score. For most of the game, it appeared neither team would score. Lecanto had just four shots on goal in each half while Crystal River (10-2-1) had two shots in the first and eight shots in the second. The loss was a bitter one for the Panthers. We just didnt capitalize on our opportunities, Lecanto head coach Roselle Lattin said. We had some good opportunities to take shots on goal. They just werent there tonight. Crystal River High coach Bill Reyes was very excited and happy about the victory. Who expected this to happen? he said. Lecanto is a Class 4A team.

When teachers from other schools (let alone Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel) show up to watch Dewees agree to play baseball and attend classes at the University of North Florida (UNF), its kind of a big deal. Dewees, a standout on various athletic fields and in the classroom for the Pirates, will become the first baseball player from the county in recent memory to make the jump directly from high school to a Division I program. Dewees cited UNF head coach Smoke Laval as a big reason in choosing the Ospreys. Laval coached at Louisiana State University from 2002 to 2005. I just went there and I liked the campus a lot, Dewees said of the four-year public school in Jacksonville. The coach there has a lot of experience ... they have a team coming up thats going to be real good. UNF went 26-26 in 2011 and is a member of the Atlantic Sun conference where the team went 13-17.

B2 T UESDAY, D ECEMBER 13, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE F OOTBALL Associated PressMIAMI Tony Sparano has been fired as coach of the Miami Dolphins, the third dismissal of an NFL coach in the past two weeks. The move came Monday, one day after the Dolphins lost to the Philadelphia Eagles to fall to 4-9. The defeat ended a recent surge by the Dolphins after they lost their first seven games. With two other teams already in the market for a new coach, owner Stephen Ross didnt want to wait any longer to start shopping. Sparanos dismissal came hours after the Kansas City Chiefs fired coach Todd Haley. Jacksonville fired coach Jack Del Rio on Nov. 29. Todd Bowles, who had been Miamis assistant head coach and secondary coach, will be the interim head coach for the final three games, starting Sunday at Buffalo. Jeff Ireland will remain as general manager and take part in the coaching search. The Dolphins are assured of their third consecutive losing season, the longest such streak since the 1960s. Theyll miss the playoffs for the ninth time in 10 years. The results speak for themselves, Ross said at a hastily called news conference. Were looking to becoming a winning organization, and I thought this was the best time to make the change and let us go in a direction that will allow us to become that. Ross is expected to pursue a coach with star power. Among those mentioned as possible candidates are Bill Cowher, Jeff Fisher and Jon Gruden. Id like to find a young Don Shula if thats possible, Ross said with a smile. Joining Ross at the news conference was Ireland, who hired Sparano in Miami and worked with him in Dallas. Its a difficult day for me, Ireland said. Hes a friend of mine. He has been a colleague of mine from before we got here together. Dolphins, Chiefs fire head coaches Sparano out as Miami leader; Todd Bowles new interim coach Associated Press Miami Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano walks off the field following warmups before Sundays game against the Philadelphia Eagles in Miami. Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. The Kansas City Chiefs fired coach Todd Haley on Monday with the team he led to the AFC West title less than a year ago stuck at the bottom of the division following a series of devastating injuries and discouraging blowouts. The Chiefs dropped to 5-8 after Sundays 37-10 loss the New York Jets, their fifth loss in six games. Kansas City committed 11 penalties for 128 yards in another dismal performance, including a 15-yarder on Haley for unsportsmanlike conduct that may have ultimately sealed his fate. Timing in these situations is always difficult. There never seems to be a right time, Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. We just felt the inconsistent play the team has experienced throughout the season, including yesterdays game, made today the right day to do it. The combustible Haley, who took over a team that won six games the previous two seasons under Herm Edwards, leaves with a 1927 record in his first NFL head coaching job. But despite the surprise AFC West title last season, its hard to tell if the team improved under his watch. Haley loses job in Kansas City following 5-8 start to season Todd Haley J IM L ITKE AP Sports ColumnistTim Tebow is doing what decades of conventional NFL wisdom said couldnt be done. Hes winning game after game playing the most important position on the field less like a quarterback than an irresistible force of nature. Seven times in their last eight games with Tebow in charge, the Broncos have somehow won when they shouldnt have six times coming back in the second half, five times in the fourth quarter and three of those in overtime. Along the way, hes befuddled critics, delighted his growing flock of fans and flummoxed opposing coaches, not to mention his own on occasion. Hes dazzled analysts and left it to teammates to explain the chain-reaction of events freak turnovers by opponents, sparkling catches by young receivers, Tebows own pinball runs through defenders that have made the closing minutes of Denver games must-see TV. The latest one might have been the most improbable. Trailing the Chicago Bears 10-0 with 4:34 left Sunday, the Broncos faced the possibility of their first home shutout in team history. In short order, Tebow cobbled together a 63-yard touchdown drive, Denver failed to recover the ensuing onside kick attempt, but got the ball back after a punt with more time left than anyone expected. Thats because Chicagos Marion Barber inexplicably ran out of bounds on a carry stopping the clock instead of simply falling to the ground. Thats usually something that never happens with a veteran running back, Denver linebacker Wesley Woodyard said. Its just like things go our way. But as Woodyard and the rest of the Broncos have come to believe, things werent done going their way. From his 20-yard line, Tebow again marched the Broncos back to the Bears 41, where Matt Prater coolly connected on a 59-yard field goal to tie the game at 10. In the extra period, Chicago was methodically grinding up a wearying Broncos defense when Barber bashed through a hole for another first down only to have the ball stripped at the last second by Woodyard and recovered by teammate Elvis Dumervil at the Broncos 34. From there, Tebow put together one more helterskelter drive to reach the Bears 33, where Prater converted a slightly less eye-popping 51-yard field goal for the win. Thats three straight Broncos scoring drives after they failed in a dozen straight series in regulation and two uncharacteristic Chicago miscues in less than five minutes. If you believe, Tebow said after the Chicago win, then unbelievable things can sometimes be possible. Mixing his football and his faith drew attention to Tebow long before he arrived in the NFL. The son of missionaries, he was born in the Philippines and has returned there numerous times on missions of his own. Like his four siblings, Tebow was home-schooled in Jacksonville. But because of a state law requiring home-schooled students to play high school football in the district where they lived, he found himself at the center of a controversy when he moved into an apartment in nearby St. Johns County with his mother so he could play prep football at powerhouse Nease High. Recruited by Florida, he won two national titles and the Heisman Trophy, but was also scorned for frequently praising or thanking God in postgame interviews. He often chalked biblical verses, such as John 3:16, on the eye-black strips players apply to their cheekbones to cut glare, prompting the NCAA to ban such messages the season after he finished his college career. His great strength, said Chap Clark, a professor at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Calif., is that even people who dont agree with his faith at all play their best around him.

Check www.chronicleonline.com for more coverage. Associated PressARLINGTON, Texas Eli Manning was steaming. A simple screen pass was tipped, bounced off the shoulder of a linebacker and was intercepted, setting up a touchdown that couldve buried the New York Giants in this game, and this season. Only, he wouldnt allow it. Manning channeled his anger into energy, leading the Giants to two touchdowns in the final 3:14 and Jason Pierre-Paul blocked a field goal in the closing seconds, giving New York a 3734 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. He was really upset over the interception, but he comes right back and takes the field and away we go, New York coach Tom Coughlin said. Sometimes I wish I was in that huddle so I could hear whats being said. He obviously made some great plays down the stretch. Just like that, the Giants four-game losing streak was done. And the NFC East race is cracked open, with New York reclaiming the inside track. Its been a while since weve had that winning feeling, said Manning, who pulled off his sixth fourthquarter win this season. Its good to have excited guys with a lot of smiles in the locker room. New Yorks recent skid was filled mostly with narrow losses to division leaders. The Giants (7-6) appeared headed to another setback trailing 34-22 with 5:41 left, but a series of clutch plays on their part and meltdowns by Dallas changed everything. The teams are tied, with the Cowboys headed to the Meadowlands for a seasonending rematch New Years Day. We knew what was on the line, Cowboys linebacker Bradie James said. But those guys made one more play than we did. Dallas has gone from winning four straight to losing two in a row, both in dramatic, frustrating fashion that involved missed kicks by rookie Dan Bailey, whod been so good for so long this season. The Cowboys also lost running back DeMarco Murray to a broken right ankle, ending his recordsetting rookie season.

Associated Press New Jersey Devils left wing Zach Parise attempts to deflect the puck past Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Dwayne Roloson in the first period of Mondays game in Tampa. S COREBOARD C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, D ECEMBER 13, 2011 B3 Seven Rivers really started to take off in its court transitions. The Lady Warriors offensive tempo off of key steals seemed to fluster the Lady Cougars. Seven Rivers head coach Patrick Kiernan knew this would be a strong point in his teams performance. We knew we could run on them, he said. Cornerstones had some ballhandling troubles, so we wanted to exploit that tonight. We thought that if we could run and jump a bit, and force some turnovers, that it would result in easy baskets on our end, and it worked out well. The Lady Warriors found success in the paint, mainly due to their physicality on the boards. Seven Rivers, led by Andrea Zachars 16 points and 10 rebounds, outrebounded Cornerstone 2310 in the game. The offensive boards gave Seven Rivers the second-chance shots it needed to get to the bucket. Sophomore Alexis Zachar provided the Lady Warriors with three big offensive rebounds, which helped her to 14 points for the game. Seven Rivers senior Kayleigh Kiernan provided a foundation for her fellow teammates to score Monday, recording nine assists to accompany her seven points. Lady Warriors freshmen Alyssa Gage also hit multiple midto long-range shots to pull in 14 points of her own. Seven Rivers walked away with its second district win. standpoint, hes a standout defender because hes got a very good arm. Hes a very good hitter, he can run and hes got a little juice in his bat. Florida State, Georgia Southern, South CarolinaUpstate, Lynn and Long Island University were other schools Dewees had interest in. The decision ends a twoyear process to get noticed by collegiate coaches that started during Dewees sophomore season. Donnies priority was to stay in the state of Florida, said former Crystal River baseball coach Dan Comstock, who helped Dewees immensely during the entire process. UNF made a very hard push and a very aggressive offer to Donnie. The last Citrus County resident to play Division I baseball was former Citrus graduate Nick DelGuidice. But DelGuidice spent one year at Lake-Sumter Community College before starting three years at shortstop for Florida Atlantic University. In the past 25 years, Dewees will be just the fifth baseball player to go from high school directly to Division I. He joins former Lecanto stars Bill Brady and Chris Sancrante (who both went to Long Island University for a year), and Andrew Castorina (West Point for a year), and former Pirates standout Joe Buccheri Jr. (UCF for a season). We always thought there were high hopes for Donnie, said incoming Crystal River baseball Bobby Stack, who was the head guy during Dewees freshman season and an assistant the past two years. He deserves it just for the type of player he is, the work ethic hes got and all the things hes done on the field and in the classroom. While Division I talent in baseball does come through Citrus County, the academic aspect is equally important in determining whether or not a student-athlete can transition to the next level. That transition is one everyone believes Dewees will handle seamlessly. His academics are outstanding, Comstock said. When we sat down his sophomore year, he was top 10 in his class at the time. He also played and practiced baseball like it was his job. Dewees thanked his mother Debi, Stack and Comstock and his priest the Rev. Eric Peters for all of their help and support. The Pirate also said longtime baseball men Joe Arnold (UF coach from 1984-94) and Vince Farfaglia were also major helps in setting up tryouts. of his total 14 saves on the night in that timeframe. The Panthers also had two blasts sail over the goal, keeping the score at nil. It was one of our better games, Lecanto head coach Doug Warren said. We were able to control the field, and were able to capitalize on our chances. It was a total team effort and hard work. But in the 34th minute, Lecanto scored its first goal when senior forward Chris Fernandez-Davila took a shot that deflected off the Pirate goalkeeper for a 1-0 Panther lead. Four minutes later, the Panthers scored again as senior forward Scott Howard assisted senior midfielder Ryan Good for the goal, putting Lecanto up 2-0 going into the intermission. In the second half, the Panthers made it 3-0 when Goods blast found the back of the goal for his second goal of the match in the 46th minute. The team worked hard, we played our game, and tried not to foul, Good said. Crystal River could not muster enough on offense, as the Pirates only had three quality chances to score the entire match. Lecanto will travel to face Vanguard Friday at Booster Stadium. Crystal River will travel Tuesday night to play against South Sumter. PANTHERSContinued from Page B1 DEWEES Continued from Page B1 GIRLS Continued from Page B1 the game as a mixed bag in terms of his teams performance. We didnt play very tonight at times, but at other times we did play well, he said afterward. He did like the play of his senior guard, who scored a game-high 23 points while also tallying eight steals and four assists. Sam Jones just has so much intensity that he brings every night, and our players feed off that, Ervin said. All of our players have good intensity, but Sam especially helps lead us that way. Jones described the keys to his and the Warriors success in the third period, when he scored 16 points in the first four and a half minutes after the break. It seems like the third quarter is when teams get the most lazy, he said. I know thats something we always struggle with starting quick in the third. So that might have been a big thing, just knowing they are tired. Jones can usually be found wherever the action turns up on the court as he combines his hustle with a sharp awareness on both offense and defense. He credited his teammates when asked about his leadership with the ball. The guys on our team are good at cutting to the basket and knowing where to be, which is fun to play with. Gage also distributed the ball effectively for Seven Rivers, getting four assists in the second quarter alone while also hitting a pair of three-pointers. He totaled 12 points and seven rebounds. Gaskins finished with 18 points, and was a key force inside. Senior forward Timothy James made a couple of three-pointers to reach 10 points, and junior Jared Bogart also added 10 points and pulled down seven rebounds. Cornerstone senior Tyler Hall shot a team-high 16 points, and senior Nick Barkley chipped in 12 points for the Cougars. The Warriors committed just four turnovers and were 15 for 26 from the floor during the second half. They outrebounded the Cougars 29-12. Seven Rivers plays at St. John Lutheran Friday.

National League COLORADO ROCKIESAgreed to terms with C Ramon Hernandez on a two-year contract. Associated PressTAMPA New Jersey coach Peter DeBoer placed a big emphasis on an early December game. Zach Parise and Adam Henrique both had a goal and two assists to lead the Devils past the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-4 on Monday night. Parise, Henrique and Ilya Kovalchuk each scored in the second period as the Devils broke open a tie game after both teams scored twice in the first. Petr Sykora and Dainius Zubrus had the other goals for New Jersey, which had lost five of seven. Its an important game, DeBoer said. I think were both spinning our wheels a little bit where were sitting in the standings and both trying to get some traction and move up. It was a key two points. Steven Stamkos had two goals and an assist for the Lightning, losers of seven of eight. Steve Downie and Blair Jones also scored. Were finding ways to lose game right now, Stamkos said. We showed, obviously, a lot of character like we always do. That second period killed us. We dug ourselves a whole to big to climb out of. Tampa Bay goalie Dwayne Roloson was replaced by Mathieu Garon early in the second after allowing three goals on 12 shots. Hell bounce back, Lightning coach Guy Boucher said. Roloson, who helped Tampa Bay reach the 2011 Eastern Conference finals, has struggled this year and has played in three of the Lightnings last 10 games. Parise scored 56 seconds into the second on an odd-man rush to make it 3-2. Devils down Lightning Parise, Henrique key in New Jerseys win in Tampa D AVEP IEKLIK CorrespondentLECANTO A starting lineup shakeup and a strong game by the bench gave Lecanto High Schools boys basketball team another win Monday night. The Panthers continued their early season dominance, their latest victory coming at the expense of Academy at the Lakes from Land O Lakes, 79-55. The win improves the Panthers overall record to 7-1. Typically a starter, Panthers senior forward Clayton Roessler came off the bench to score 14 points on 4 of 5 shooting and grabbed five rebounds. He watched fellow Panther Robert Vega add eight points and six rebounds. Roessler said coach Eddie Buckley started a different group of players and credited them with building a big lead early on. He is also confident in his teams performance so far, adding, We just feel we are on track to win the district title and make a run in the state playoffs. Buckley adjusted the lineup to give more playing time for several players, and the team responded with a 2310 lead at the end of the first quarter. Though the Wildcats (4-2, 3-1 district) clawed to within five late in the first half, their rally unraveled. Wildcats guard Abaz Igwe led his teams effort with 15 points. Though it might have been a win, Buckley was looking ahead to the next game, a district matchup at home Friday against West Port High School from Ocala. The Panthers are a perfect 3-0 in district play. Buckley wants to see more hustle from his team, which was outrebounded by the Wildcats 19-14. If the Panthers rebound and play West Port really tough, he said, Well be all right. Panthers bench gets workout in teams seventh victory Sports BRIEFS Syracuse moves to No. 1 in AP Top 25 pollThe Syracuse basketball program is in the headlines for a very different reason: The Orange are No. 1 in The Associated Press Top 25. After spending weeks in the news when former assistant coach Bernie Fine was alleged to have molested two former ball boys, Syracuse moved into the top spot Monday for the fourth time overall and the first time since a one-week appearance late in 2009-10. The Orange (10-0) jumped from third to No. 1 following losses this weekend by Kentucky and Ohio State. They received 51 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel. Syracuse was No. 1 in the 1987-88 preseason poll and for six weeks in 1989-90. Ohio State (8-1), which lost to Kansas, stays second, while Kentucky (8-1) drops from first to third following the loss to Indiana. The Hoosiers, one of four newcomers this week, move in at 18th, their first appearance since 2007-08. Baylor women No. 1 in AP poll, Oklahoma falls out Baylor remains the unanimous choice as the No. 1 team in The Associated Press womens college basketball poll, while Oklahoma fell from the rankings for the first time in seven seasons. The Lady Bears received all 39 first-place ballots Monday after two wins this week. They play No. 2 Connecticut on Sunday in Waco. Its the second straight season they have met as the top two teams in the poll. The Huskies edged the Lady Bears in Hartford last season by one point. Notre Dame, Stanford and Maryland remained the rest of the top five. Oklahoma dropped out of the poll for the first time since the end of the 2004-05 season. Nebraska entered at No. 25. Associated Press Chelios leads class of 5 into hockey hall CHICAGO Chris Chelios led a class of five inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday night. The three-time Norris Trophy winner and four-time Olympian was joined by fellow defenseman Gary Suter, who played with Chelios at the University of Wisconsin and for the Chicago Blackhawks, forward Keith Tkachuk, Philadelphia Flyers owner Ed Snider and broadcaster Mike Emrick. In my generation of players, there werent a lot of kids who played organized hockey, Chelios said. Maybe a handful of us continued on to a college career. It wasnt as easy as today. American kids were playing baseball and football, and developed a little later. So those two years you need to grow, physically, there wasnt anywhere to play. Associated Press

Streep on Vogue cover for first time NEW YORK Meryl Streep may be considered one of the finest actresses around, yet she says she believed her career was over 20 years ago. Streep, now 62, tells Vogue magazine she was offered three different roles to play a witch after turning 40. She believed it meant women in her age group were grotesque on some level, and told her husband, Its over. Streep graces the January cover of Vogue magazine for the first time and jokes shes the oldest person to do so. Next, she plays the former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the new film Iron Lady. Shell portray Thatcher from age 49 to 85. The film opens Jan. 13. The January issue of Vogue goes on sale Dec. 20.Survivor winner out of prison PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island Reality television star Richard Hatch has been released from a Rhode Island prison after serving a ninemonth sentence for failing to pay back taxes. A state prison official says the winner of the first season of the CBS reality show Survivor was released Monday. Hatch served six weeks at a state minimum-security facility as a transition after spending most of his sentence in federal prison. The Newport resident had spent more than three years in prison for not paying taxes on his $1 million Survivor winnings. He was released in 2009 and ordered to refile his 2000 and 2001 taxes and pay what he owed. The 50-year-old went back to prison in March for violating the terms of his supervised release by failing to settle his tax bill. Stolen guitar found; autographs gone BURLINGTON, Vt. Police in Vermont say a stolen 1972 Fender Telecaster electric guitar autographed by members of Pearl Jam for a boy with a brain tumor has been recovered but the signatures are gone. The Burlington Free Pressreported two men have been jailed on charges of possession of stolen property. Ben Hardy said his ailing brother Josh received the guitar autographed by members of Pearl Jam in 1991 in Seattle. It was arranged by the Make-AWish Foundation. Josh died months later at the familys home in Durham, N.H. The guitar and other items were taken from Hardys home between Thanksgiving and Dec. 5 while he was away. Arrested were 25-yearold Jeffrey Leduc and 51year-old Timothy Crews both of Burlington. Your birthday: There is a good chance that the kind of friends you like to hang out with will shift in the year ahead. People with a practical look to the future might draw you into their circle. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) An ambitious objective isnt apt to be fulfilled, because its likely that youll only be willing to wish for what you want but not eager to work for it. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If you hear about something that sounds wonderful but requires a large outlay of cash, dont jump in without first checking out its bona fides. Naivete could cost a bundle. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Someone on whom youre counting for help concluding a very complicated matter might let you down. You could be in trouble unless you have a backup plan ready, just in case. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) A job youve been putting off for quite some time might become a thorn in your side. Dont waste any more time making excuses get down to business as promptly as possible. Aries (March 21-April 19) Wanting things and being able to afford them are two entirely different matters. Dont let your extravagant whims overwhelm your common sense and land you in debt. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Some of your objectives arent likely to be achieved, because it isnt likely that youll get organized or be persistent enough to do what it takes to realize your aims. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Be very careful of what you voice about others, even those who may deserve being put in his or her place. Unfortunately, what you say and how you say it could make you look bad. Cancer (June 21-July 22) If being friends with someone is predicated purely upon what they can do for you, the relationship is likely to fall flat. It might be wise to examine your reasons for this kind of behavior. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) It wouldnt be smart to get into a finger-pointing contest with an associate at work, because there is no way it will make either of you smell nice. The bad odor could even affect your career. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) It doesnt matter if it happens at work or in a social setting, arguing political intrigues is likely to cause you some problems. Dont be jockeyed into feeling you must participate. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) The change that youve been fervidly awaiting might happen at last, but once it does, you could wonder why it was something you thought you wanted. Make the best of things. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Before you lash out about some unflattering things being said about you, perhaps it might be wise to check it out first. What is told to you may have no basis in fact.

Yet with or without a blockbuster role, Noomi Rapace always felt she would break out beyond the borders of her homeland. Two and a half years after the debut of Dragon Tattoo, the first of her three eyepopping turns as late author Stieg Larssons untamed heroine, Rapace has stormed into Hollywood in Robert Downey Jr.s latest Sherlock Holmes adventure and Ridley Scotts Prometheus, a cousin to his sci-fi hit Alien. Rapace felt right at home among Downeys ensemble for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, while she grew up on Alien, Thelma & Louise and other films from director Scott. Ridley Scott is one of my heroes since as long as I can remember. I kind of actually think that he saved me sometimes, because I always felt like an outsider in Sweden. I didnt feel Swedish. I always felt like something is different with me, Rapace said in an interview to promote Sherlock Holmes, which opens Friday. The Swedish people are quite repressed, and they hold back a lot of things. Its like people are really afraid of conflicts and emotions, and nobody really says anything straight to you. ... So in a weird way, I always felt that I was going to leave kind of what I came from. But I could never imagine I was going to end up with these people and doing movies with the best people in the world. Rapace, 31, appeared in her first movie at age 7 while living in Iceland before her family moved back to Sweden, and she has been acting steadily for the past decade. But it was her performance as brilliant, traumatized, ferocious and feral computer hacker Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo that was her exit visa from Sweden. All three films adapted from Larssons best-sellers became worldwide hits, with Hollywood quickly jumping in for David Finchers Englishlanguage remake of Dragon Tattoo, opening just days after Sherlock Holmes. The world of Lisbeth with her tattoos, body piercings and anarchic spirit was not unknown to Rapace, who went on her own rebellious, punk-rocker tear in her early teens. There was a gap there when I was not into acting and I was against everything. First, I was into doing judo and kung fu. Then I was drinking a lot, Rapace said. So I kind of lost track for a while, then I came back, I pulled myself together and I decided when I was 15 that Im going to get sober and Im going to become an actress. She enrolled in a drama high school in Stockholm and built an impressive list of credits in Swedish film and TV in her 20s. When the part of Lisbeth came her way, she even wore some of her old punk clothes and shoes. Rapace came to the film pre-perforated, reopening an old stud hole of her own for one of Lisbeths piercings. To capture Lisbeths intensity, Rapace also had to revive the wild spirit of her teen years. I had to just wake up that sleeping demon and say, Its time to come back now, Rapace said. In the Sherlock Holmes sequel, Rapace plays a gypsy fortuneteller who teams up with Downeys great detective and sidekick Watson (Jude Law) against their archrival, Moriarty (Jared Harris). Downey met with Rapace and was sold on her for the role even before he saw her in Dragon Tattoo. Then I saw the movie and thought, my God, how are we going to take all that shes capable of and make this role worth her while and show a different side of her? Downey said. She can kick ass, that girl, said Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie. Rapaces Lisbeth was scary. Theres a very strong element of danger about her that she maintains like a wild animal, in a way. Doing interviews for the Dragon Tattoo films, Rapace realized her English was weak, so set out to teach herself the language. Barely a year later, she was fluent in English when she turned up on set for Sherlock Holmes and Scotts Prometheus. Due in theaters next summer, Prometheus is the filmmakers return to science fiction, though Scott and his collaborators are cagey about whether its a prequel to 1979s Alien, in which Sigourney Weavers Ellen Ripley first encountered the unstoppable space monster. Co-starring with Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender, Rapace plays an archaeologist on an exploratory mission that runs into trouble in deep space. Its not a clean prequel to Alien, Rapace said. Its definitely related. I think you will see connections including some between her character and Weavers Ripley. They are kind of in the same family. Even though I think that my character is kind of more feminine, Rapace said. Shes more nave in the beginning and a believer and full of hope, and then in the middle of the movie, she kind of changes into more of a warrior and a survivor. Early next year, Rapace is set to shoot the crime story Dead Man Down with Colin Farrell, reuniting her with Dragon Tattoo director Niels Arden Oplev.

Big promise is seen in two new breast cancer drugs M ARILYNNM ARCHIONE AP Chief Medical WriterSAN ANTONIO Breast cancer experts are cheering what could be some of the biggest advances in more than a decade: two new medicines that significantly delay the time until women with very advanced cases get worse. In a large international study, an experimental drug from Genentech called pertuzumab (per-TOO-zoomab) held cancer at bay for a median of 18 months when given with standard treatment, versus 12 months for others given only the usual treatment. It also strongly appears to be improving survival, and follow-up is continuing. You dont see that very often. ... Its a spectacular result, said one study leader, Dr. Sandra Swain, medical director of Washington Hospital Centers cancer institute. In a second study, another drug long used in organ transplants but not tried against breast cancer everolimus, sold as Afinitor by Novartis AG kept cancer in check for a median of 7 months in women whose disease was worsening despite treatment with hormoneblocking drugs. A comparison group that received only hormonal medicine had just a 3-month delay in disease progression. Afinitor works in a novel way, seems unusually effective and sets a new standard of care, said Dr. Peter Ravdin, breast cancer chief at the UT Health Science Center in San Antonio. He has no role in the work or ties to drugmakers. Most patients have tumors like those in this study their growth is fueled by estrogen. Results were released Wednesday at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium and some were published online by the New England Journal of Medicine. They come a few weeks after federal approval was revoked for another Genentech drug, Avastin, that did not meaningfully help breast cancer patients. It still is sold for other tumor types. The new drugs are some of the first major developments since Herceptin came out in 1998. It has become standard treatment for a certain type of breast cancer. These are powerful advances ... an important step forward, said Dr. Paul Burstein, a breast expert at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston who had no role in the studies. A reality check: The new drugs are likely to be very expensive up to $10,000 a month and so far have not proved to be cures. Doctors hope they might be when given to women with early-stage cancers when they can be cured, rather than the very advanced cases treated in these studies. Even short of a cure, about 40,000 U.S. women each year have cancer that spreads beyond the breast, and treatment can make a big difference in their lives. Rachel Midgett is an example. The 39-year-old Houston woman has breast cancer that spread to multiple parts of her liver, yet she ran a half-marathon in Las Vegas on Sunday. She has had three scans since starting on Afinitor nine months ago, and every time, my liver lesions keep shrinking, she said. My quality of life has been wonderful. Its amazing. I have my hair. ... If you saw me you wouldnt even know I have cancer. Genentech, part of the Switzerland-based Roche Group, applied Tuesday to the federal Food and Drug Administration for permission to sell pertuzumab as initial treatment for women like those in the study. The drug targets cells that make too much of a protein called HER2 about one of every four or five breast cancer cases. Herceptin attacks the same target but in a different way, and the two medicines complement each other. The study tested the combination in 808 women from Europe, North and South America and Asia and found a 6-month advantage in how long the cancer stayed stable. All women also received a chemotherapy drug, docetaxel. Thats a huge improvement in such advanced cases, said study leader Dr. Jose Baselga, associate director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center. He is a paid consultant for Roche. So far, 165 deaths have occurred 96 among the 406 women given Herceptin and chemo alone, and only 69 among the 402 women also given pertuzumab. Doctors wont know whether the drug affects survival until there are more deaths. The most common side effects were diarrhea, rash and low white blood cell counts, which often occur with cancer treatment. The dual treatment did not cause more heart problems an issue with other Herceptin combinations. Were really pleased that there were no new safety signals and that pertuzumab is so promising, said Dr. Sandra Horning, Genentechs global development chief of cancer drugs. Another study is testing pertuzumab in 3,800 women with early breast cancer. Genentech says it has not set a price for pertuzumab, but sells Herceptin for $4,500 a month to doctors, who mark it up and add fees to infuse it. Herceptins U.S. patent expires in 2019, so combination treatment might be more affordable once generic Herceptin is available. Pertuzumab is a winner and should win government approval, said Dr. Eric Winer of the DanaFarber cancer center. Dr. Gary Lyman, a treatment effectiveness researcher at Duke University, called the results quite impressive, unlike what turned out to be the case for Avastin. He was on an FDA panel that recommended accelerated approval for Avastin as well as the recent panel that urged revoking its use for breast cancer because later studies did not bear out its early promise. Winer and Lyman have no role in the new studies or financial ties to any drug companies. The other study tested Novartis AGs Afinitor, which has long been sold for preventing organ rejection after transplants and to treat a few less common cancers, including the type of pancreatic tumor that killed Apple founder Steve Jobs. It blocks one pathway cancer uses to spread. A one-month supply costs $11,000. The 724 women in the study were worsening despite treatment with hormone-blocking medicines. They all were given one they had not taken before, and some also got Afinitor. After about a year of follow-up, cancer progression was delayed 7 months in the group getting Afinitor and 3 months in the others. The two together have a much greater effect than you would expect from either alone, said study leader Dr. Gabriel Hortobagyi, breast cancer research chief at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. They snip two wires that are critical for growth signals to continue, he said. However, the combo led to more side effects mouth sores, anemia, shortness of breath, high blood sugar, fatigue and lung inflammation. The cancer conference is sponsored by the American Association for Cancer Research, Baylor College of Medicine and the UT Health Science Center. Experimental medicine H EALTH & L IFE A s we approach the holidays, I hate to bring up the subject of obesity and diabetes, but more and more evidences is pointing to the increased risk of cancer in patients who possess both of these risk factors. Common sense tells us that often they go hand in hand, and by losing weight, we can often lower our sugar level. And our age with respect to weight and sugar levels also plays a critical role. Having diabetes or being obese after age 60 significantly increases the risk for developing breast cancer, according to a new Swedish study. Data from this study also showed that high blood lipids, cholesterol, and triglycerides were less common in patients when diagnosed with breast cancer, Dr. C. Joseph Bennett AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY Diabetes, obesity and risk of cancer See BENNETT / Page C4 Dr. Sunil Gandhi CANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Chemo helps A diagnosis of cancer is always a scary thought. Once a woman has been told about a new diagnosis of breast cancer, she has to undergo multiple tests. If cancer is localized, she usually needs surgery. After surgery, many patients need adjuvant therapy. The question that bothers some of these patients is, If all my cancer is removed, why do I need any more treatment? Some patients refuse any further therapy after surgery because they think it is unnecessary. Remember, most of the time, breast cancer is a systemic disease at the time of diagnosis. This means even though we find cancer localized to the breast by all modern tests, small, microscopic cancer cells very likely escaped from the breast and spread to distant organs like the lungs, bones, liver, etc. If we ignore this aspect and do not take adjuvant chemotherapy and/or hormone therapy, breast cancer can recur many years later in one or more of these distant places. This makes the cancer incurable. A huge metaanalysis of clinical trials in breast cancer conducted during the past 40 years has See GANDHI / Page C4 D o you remember the days when the general practitioner did nearly all of your care? And we can all remember the TV shows where the doctor carried a little bag, and came to the house, and even did surgery in the kitchen. As we all know, those days are long gone, but that trend could possibly affect a specialty such as ears, nose and throat. It has happened once before; ear, nose and throat used to be attached to Ophthalmology, and it used to be EENT. Ophthalmology then separated some decades ago, and it looks like ENT could be splintered into ear nose and throat: three separate specialties, three separate training programs. Nowadays, there are plenty of general ENT doctors who treat all three aspects, but there is strong argument that the ENT subspecialization is growing and evolving in response to this ever-increasing medical research and knowledge out there. Having hyperspecialized doctors does in some cases create better doctors, but also it may do away with the need for a general ENT doctor who in many instances could adequately handle the needs of patients without seeing a specific doctor for a specific problem. Also, it may be difficult for patients, and very confusing as to whom they should go see based on their symptoms. As we know, sometimes symptoms can be very deceiving as to the true underlying problem. A recent survey of ENT residents shows the vast majority of them feel they need to further their education. That type of training is called fellowship, and usually follows the residency. Today, we have ear, nose and throat doctors who do fellowships One doc for everything S omeone recently asked me to write about the topic of plantar fasciitis as a cause of heel pain for this column. Plantar fasciitis is usually associated with the dreaded heel pain thought of, incorrectly, as the source of the pain and symptoms. Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain. Plantar fasciitis tends to present with a post-static dyskinesia-type presentation of symptoms. Post-static dyskinesia is the presentation of symptoms that are most profound when first arising or beginning an activity immediately after rest that was preceded by activity. Pain for the first 20 footsteps after arising from bed in the morning or after sitting for a time that presents itself in the heel would be a good example. This is the classic presentation of plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is usually associated with an enthesis, or bone spur. Entheses are sometimes present on radiographs obtained during the examination. The enthesis or spur is almost always blamed for the problem by the patient, but the spur itself is almost never the cause of the pain. Entheses are really not spurs, but they are a phenomenon caused by a traction force on bone by some structure. Entheses are the most problematic bone spur phenomenon in the foot, and are very misunderstood. Entheses are a bone reaction or growth caused by an abnormal pulling force on the bone. The analogy I use with patients is that where entheses form, the Is my heel pain plantar fasciitis?

My issue now is one of them is discolored more than the others, and I want to have it look like the others for an upcoming wedding. My dentist told me to have the two front teeth veneered. However, I am hesitant to do this because, other than the discoloration, my teeth are fine. Can you let me know what you think? Thanks. A: Thanks for your question and I would be happy to let you know what I think. First, let me say that it is not uncommon for a tooth to need root canal therapy after a traumatic injury, such as you described. What many people do not know is that the root canal can be needed immediately or in a few months or even many years later. I always tell patients who have a traumatic injury to a tooth that they need to remember our conversation, because they may need root canal therapy for no other apparent reason 20 years or more after the injury. If the injury did not damage the integrity of the tooth, which I am going to assume is the case for you, all you would have had needed was a root canal and a small filling in the back of the tooth. This filling is used to fill the hole that was made to access the nerve canal of the tooth in order to do the root canal. I am assuming this because you have been told to have veneers done. If there had been more destruction to the tooth, they would have recommended a crown instead. If this is the case, I agree with you about not having the tooth shaved down to attain a whiter tooth. In addition, I would not be in favor of shaving down the adjacent tooth when that tooth was not in question. There are many times a dentist would rather restore both front teeth in order to get a more perfect match. There is a lot of validity to this idea. However, it is better to not shave down a tooth that doesnt need to be shaved down if there are other alternatives. If my assumptions are right, I would rather try to whiten the dark tooth. All you need to do is whiten that one tooth to the point it matched the others. Once this is done, you can whiten all of the teeth or leave things as they are. The next question will be how to whiten the tooth. Many people will try the over-the-counter whitening strips. I do not think these will work very well in your case, because it is only one tooth that needs whitening. I would suggest at-home whitening trays, as I have described in previous columns. This entails your dentist making trays for you and dispensing whitening gel. Another alternative is to have inoffice whitening done on the dark tooth. Either way will work. The athome method will likely take a few weeks, while the in-office method will likely take an hour. The choice becomes the patients. I usually suggest the take-home method if time is not critical, because you then have trays you can use in the future to touch things up if the teeth darken over time. In my office, I dispense trays even if I do the in-office whitening, because the reality is the teeth will darken and the patient will want to whiten them up at their leisure at home. In the event whitening does not work, you can always use cosmetic bonding, veneers or even crowns. That being said, I am willing to bet that what I presented earlier will work. Hope this helps and enjoy the wedding! Dr. Frank Vascimini is a Homosassa dentist. Send your questions to 4805 S.

H EALTH& L IFE C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, D ECEMBER 13, 2011 C3 Study indicates statin drugs OK for long-term use Q : Are statin drugs safe to take for a long time? A: Apparently so, according to the results of a large long-term study recently published online in The Lancet journal. This study was a follow-up of patients who were enrolled the Heart Protection Study (HPS). In the HPS, more than 20,000 patients at increased risk of vascular disease, such as a heart attack or stroke, were given simvastatin (Zocor) 40 mg daily or a placebo for about five years. Results from this study showed that patients treated with simvastatin lowered their LDL (bad) cholesterol and experienced a 23 percent decrease in major vascular events such as a heart attack or stroke compared to those getting a placebo. In order to determine if a statin drug was safe and effective in the long run, these patients were followed for an additional six years, and the results are now in. In this follow-up study, simvastatin was found to provide lasting reductions in serious vascular events such as a heart attack or stroke. In addition, the researchers found no differences in cancer deaths or cancer incidence in patients receiving the statin medication. Furthermore, there were not any differences in non-vascular mortality nor were there any identifiable adverse effects that would not support the long-term treatment with statins. The authors of this study concluded that their research findings provide support for the prompt initiation of statin therapy in patients at risk of vascular disease and that the extended use of a statin drug is safe with respect to possible risk of cancer and nonvascular mortality. There are currently seven statin drugs available: atorvastatin (Lipitor), fluvastatin (Lescol), lovastatin (Mevacor, Altoprev), pitavastatin (Livalo), pravastatin (Pravachol), rosuvastatin (Crestor), and simvastatin (Zocor). Atorvastatin, lovastatin, pravastatin, and simvastatin are also available as generic drugs. Richard P Hoffmann, Pharm.D., has been a pharmacist for more than 40 years.

The metaanalysis, which involved more than 100,000 breast cancer patients, is the latest in a series from the Early Breast Cancer Trialists Collaborative Group (EBCTCG), from the Clinical Trial Service Unit at the University of Oxford, United Kingdom. It was published online Dec.6 in the Lancet journal. The benefit is even greater for many women, said Sir Richard Peto, FRS, cofounder and co-director of the Clinical Trials Service Unit, and one of the authors of the metaanalysis. He pointed out that most breast cancers are estrogenreceptor (ER) positive; in cases where these types of tumors appear to have been completely removed by surgery, the 10-year risk of recurrence and death can be reduced by at least half by giving a few months of modern chemotherapy plus 5 years of endocrine therapy. This study encompasses the patients in the past 40 years. Therefore, it includes patients who were treated with old chemotherapy drugs and also those who were treated with modern chemotherapy drugs. Obviously, modern chemotherapy drugs are not only more effective, but they are less toxic, too. In short, women shouldnt be scared of modern chemotherapy in breast cancer and shouldnt decide not to take these extremely helpful drugs. The short-term side effects are definitely worth the long-term benefits. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

GANDHI Continued from Page C1 Special to the ChronicleHomosassa area elders, their caregivers and family members who have questions or concerns about Medicare and related health-insurance topics have a new place to turn. The states SHINE program (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders) will be opening a counseling site at First United Methodist Church at 8831 W. Bradshaw St., Homosassa. The new site is scheduled to operate on Mondays beginning Dec. 12. SHINE is a volunteer program of the state Department of Elder Affairs that empowers elders to make informed decisions about their health care coverage. Specially trained volunteer counselors provide information and assistance at counseling sites statewide and will now serve more individuals at the new Homosassa location. As part of the many programs offered locally through Elder Options, SHINE provides free unbiased guidance through educational materials and healthinsurance counseling. The new site at First United Methodist Church will allow the program to reach more community members who may benefit from the services that many residents are not currently aware of. SHINE, through a network of dedicated volunteer counselors, strives to help seniors understand and receive the insurance coverage they need. Every day SHINE volunteers answer questions regarding topics such as Medicare, Medicaid, prescription assistance, long-term care planning, and more. SHINE volunteer counselors can even help people eligible for Medicare find programs for which they may qualify that can either lower prescription drug costs or provide prescription drugs at no cost. To make an appointment for counseling at the new SHINE counseling site, or to receive other assistance by phone, call 352-5275956. Please leave your name, telephone number and your city of residence. A SHINE counselor will return your call within two business days. Additional assistance may be obtained by calling the Elder Helpline toll free at 800-963-5337.

Researchers reported this data at the recent San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. In this study, they also looked at the overall cancer incidence, and discovered that use of one diabetes drug was associated with a lower rate of any cancer, while another was associated with an increased risk. In this study, researchers evaluated health care data from a region of 1.5 million people living in southwestern Sweden to provide a comprehensive picture of cancer risk. Researchers found that diabetes in adult women and obesity in women aged 60 and older significantly increased their breast cancer risk. This is useful information for women who want to know their risk and who can take steps to lower it. The researchers examined records of 2,724 patients up to 10 years before they developed cancer and 20,542 patients who never developed the disease. They found that obesity in women after age 60 increased the risk for developing breast cancer by 55 percent. Women with diabetes had a 37 percent increased risk for developing breast cancer if their diabetes had been diagnosed up to four years before cancer was diagnosed. On another note, women with abnormally low levels of blood lipids, such as cholesterol, had a 25 percent greater risk for developing breast cancer, while high levels of blood lipids appeared to be associated with a lower risk for breast cancer. The mechanisms behind these effects are unclear, and the finding needs to be replicated in another study. Researchers also looked at the national drug prescription registry to examine the link between risk for all cancers and use of two diabetes drugs, glargine (a formulation of a type of insulin) and metformin, a pill that you take for diabetes. In this study, investigators found that glargine use, which had been associated with increased cancer development in previous European studies, almost doubled the risk for development of any cancer, while metformin was linked to an 8 percent lower risk for cancer in patients with diabetes. More research is needed to clarify the specific cancers at increased risk. The number of patients in this study who developed breast cancer using these medications was too small to make any link to breast cancer risk specifically, but this information may assist your doctor in choosing the best medication for you if you have diabetes.

The tendon or ligament is essentially pulling or tearing the bone covering, thus producing a radiographically visible change in the bones shape, or spur formation. These types of spurs almost always involve motion or locomotion in the generation of symptoms. Contrary to what most many patients believe, these types of spurs do not stab or jab into tissue. The pain is produced when the ligament or tendon attached to the bone begins to microscopically tear away from the bone. A continuation of a process of tearing, followed by bleeding and calcification, leads to the spur formation one can visualize on radiographs. Traction enthuses also tend to produce similar onset of symptoms in almost all affected individuals. Folks suffering from symptomatic inflammation of an enthusis will generally complain that the area hurts terribly when first arising or moving after a period of rest or relaxation that was preceded by activity. This phenomenon is known as post-static dyskinesia and is a hallmark sign of inflammatory insertional tendonitis or ligament irritation. Treatment for plantar fasciitis begins with a thorough history, physical exam and most often radiographic examination. MRI can be valuable in difficult cases. Treatment options include benign neglect, as most cases will eventually resolve; activity moderation; avoidance of barefoot ambulating; stretching; antiinflammatory medications; steroid injections; night splints; physical therapy; walking casts; keeping off the extremity with crutches; custom orthotics; or surgery. Medications and injections do not cure plantar fasciitis by themselves. They cannot and do not. I do not believe in surgery for this condition. This is my opinion, and other physicians are justified to feel differently. Plantar fasciitis is usually caused by overuse or fatigue of the plantar fascia, caused by and overload of force due to the pull of the calf muscle. Changes in weight, activity or shoes can be aggravating factors, but most often patients cannot relate a reason for its appearance. Plantar fasciitis can be unilateral or bilateral. Care must be taken not to jump to the conclusion that all cases of heel pain are plantar fasciitis, however. Stress fracture or heel done bruise, bursitis, inadequate or atrophied heel cushion, bone tumor, radiculopathy or pinched nerve at the L4-5 or L5-S1 vertebral level, or tendonitis of the great or small toe tendon are all different diagnoses of heel pain. These must be considered, in my opinion and experience, when making a diagnosis based on obtaining a thorough history and examination, or it could lead to frustration and unnecessary treatments.

Clearly, there is a need for those people for the very complicated cases. Competition for patients in certain areas have pitted the general ENT against the specialist fellowshiptrained ENT, but generally speaking, the subspecialization is usually found in larger cities and larger medical centers, where unusual cases are referred. A constant evolution of science and medicine is incredible, and ultimately benefits all of us by making quicker and more accurate diagnoses, and better and faster treatments. But can one ENT specialist do it all? That is not likely. I happen to believe that in the future there will be a place for general ENT doctors and subspecialized ENT doctors, and they will be able to work together in harmony. Subspecialists, as I mentioned, are routinely in larger centers and bigger cities. Some people who live in suburban and urban areas can get the generalized ENT care with their local ear, nose and throat doctor, and this is a better situation, because if they develop any complications or an emergency, they are close to their surgeon, and would go to the larger centers if they have an unusual or complicated problem. The subspecialized ENT doctor can help the general ENT doctor provide better care for more complex patients, and once the problem is stabilized, usually follow-up can be handled locally, so you still have contact with your ENT generalist. I believe better ear, nose and throat care can be a collaboration between the generalist and the subspecialist as science and medicine evolves, so we can offer our patients, even in rural areas, cutting-edge medicine that he or she may have thought was not even available, let alone in a smalltown setting.

T he Women of Sugarmill Woods Silver Jubilee Fashion Show was a glittering and glamorous celebration of the clubs 25th year and the 23rd gala fashion shows. Staged at the elegant Palace Grand in Spring Hill, featuring the Crystal River La-Te-Da Fashions and the song stylists of Bobby Palermo, Floridas Neil Diamond, and an array of silent auction items, it is the coveted event of the season and one that benefits innumerable countywide charitable causes. Bridget Lee, president, and her volunteer team exuded Southern hospitality to the 250-plus guests. Strikingly charming and handsome husbands served as ushers, ticket sellers for the drawings, and model escorts. Master of ceremonies Gordon Wellers melodious voice and wit to spare kept the pace of the afternoons festivities on course. Bobby Palermo, a gifted artist, captured our hearts with all of our all-time Diamond favorites. His uncanny wit and commentary throughout his performance were a delightful surprise. Francesca Parr and Linda Swart cochaired the event. Past presidents in attendance were charter president Jeanne Davis Balmer, Betty Welch, Dottie Radcliffe, Pat OBrien and Bridget Leo. Additional charter members celebrating the groups successes were Edith Schaeffer, Dorothy Lacker and Fran Hopkins. With show-stopping versions of Headed for the Future from his recent Las Vegas stint, Palermo had the crowd in the palm of his hand with handclapping Holly Holy. Catering to the lucky front-row ladies with Sweet Caroline, a Diamond signature song, soon the entire crowd was in the mood for swaying to the soulful delivery of Love on the Rocks and Forever in Blue Jeans. With an invitation to join him on stage, Chris and Rose obliged as he serenaded them with You Dont Bring Me Flowers, made famous with a duet recording with Barbra Streisand and Julio Iglesias. We chanted in unison, Today! Today! Today! with Palermo proclaiming, We want the troops to come home to America, closing out the unforgettable performance of Bobby Palermo, entertainer extraordinaire and winner of Eye of Tampa Bays Channel 13 Entertainer of the Year Award. The models final set included short vests that easily transform into a long one or a scarf, an unusual clock purse, pirate jewelry, the special-order jeans with beading below the knee, the versatile necklace that doubles as a belt or a bracelet, an eye-catching balloon skirt worn with a tie-dyed shirt, and a red cowgirl hat and boots. To the lovely strains of Pretty Woman, all of the models returned to the runway for their final bow. Another fabulous show.

C6 T UESDAY, D ECEMBER 13, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT Thomas Edison said: If I find 10,000 ways something wont work, I havent failed. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward. That brings new meaning to tunnel vision 10,000 failures. If only he could have turned to bridge, where there are far fewer opportunities for error. But discarded is apropos of this deal. South is in four spades. West leads the heart ace. How should the play proceed? When West makes a weak jump overcall, responder, with support for his partners major, bids one level higher than he would have done without the intervention. So, here, three spades would show a decent single raise, four spades would indicate a game-invitational limit raise, and the four-heart cuebid showed game-forcing values in spades without saying anything about his heart holding. West leads the heart ace and East drops the two, which must be a singleton when South also follows. (With a doubleton, East would have started a high-low.) So West continues with his heart king. What should East discard? Obviously, East would like his partner to shift to a club. He can try to achieve that by pitching either the diamond four (low discouraging) or the club eight (high encouraging). It is much better to place the club eight onto the table. The more spots on a card, the more likely partner is to notice. Then it should be the work of a moment for West to lead the club 10, netting the first four tricks for the defense.

My former employers signed a nondisclosure contract about the terms of my resignation. But apparently, if the company to which I am applying asks the right questions, they are told everything. My question is: If my former employers signed a nondisclosure agreement, how can they disclose the nature of my resignation under any circumstances? I have more than 20 years of experience in my profession, but cannot find employment because my former employer is divulging information he contractually agreed not to mention. I cant even find a job flipping burgers, because I am overqualified. Do I have any legal recourse in this matter? I cannot afford an attorney and do not know where else to turn. Ruining My Reputation Dear Reputation: Are you sure your former employers are doing this? Your inability to find a job may have nothing to do with them. In most circumstances like yours, the previous employer would simply write a neutral letter of recommendation, neither praising you nor trashing you. But if, in fact, a former boss is violating the conditions of the contract regarding your resignation, you may have cause to sue. However, you will need a lawyer. Try your state Legal Aid Society or contact the National Legal Aid and Defender Association (nlada.org) for a referral. Also check local law schools to see whether they might take your case or offer legal advice. Dear Annie: We are remodeling our house. When we wanted to have a birthday party for our son, my mother offered to let us use her house instead of ours. It seemed to be the perfect solution. Unfortunately, my inlaws were offended. (Mind you, they didnt offer to have the party at their house.) As a result, my husbands parents and siblings chose to boycott the party. Now there is tension, and they are barely speaking to me, although they still speak to my husband.My in-laws have always subtly favored my husbands brother, but this slight was deliberate and noticeable. I dont want to be the cause of any estrangement and have asked my in-laws what I can do to make amends. They insist nothing is wrong, but they give my husband an earful when Im not present.My husband says to let it go, that it is not worth the confrontation. I love them and miss them, and Im hurt that they arent willing to work this out. I want my son to know his grandparents. How can I fix this? Baffled Dear Baffled: Your in-laws sound rather thin-skinned, and it is caring and loving of you to promote a good relationship in spite of their favoritism. Please take your husbands advice and let things go. Confronting them will not make them feel warmer toward you. The important thing is that your husband defends you against their criticisms. And keep in mind that they probably will not want to be kept from their grandson for too long. We recommend you remain unfailingly civil and kind so your behavior remains beyond reproach. Dear Annie: I read the letter from Beleaguered Mom,who expected her mother-in-law to baby-sit. I dont have kids, but as a registered nurse, I have a similar problem.Just because I am an RN does not mean I am running a 24/7 free health clinic. I have been phoned at 11 p.m. by fellow church congregants asking about benign conditions that should be taken to their own doctors. On a retreat weekend for women only, the coordinator thought it was appropriate that I be placed in a bedroom with an actively hallucinating schizophrenic whom I had never met. She thought I could help.Instead, I didnt get a wink of sleep. Please tell entitled people that trying to fashion others into your instant therapists or baby-sitters will alienate them instead of bringing them closer.
