PAGE A4 TODAY & Wednesday morning C ATHYK APULKA Staff WriterINVERNESS The community is invited to Congregation Beth Sholom of Citrus Countys first public Hanukkah candle lighting and celebration at 6 p.m. Tuesday on the grounds of the Historic Courthouse in downtown Inverness. The holiday of Hanukkah, I would call a minor holiday with major importance, said Mordecai Kamlot, a cantor at Congregation Beth Sholom. He said the holiday of Hanukkah celebrates the victory of the first war fought for religious freedom in the world. The origins of Hanukkah go back to the year 168 B.C.E. (before the common era), when the Jews of Judea began a revolt against the Syrian Greeks who had greatly restricted Congregation Beth Sholom Cantor Mordecai Kamlot prepares for Hanukkah, which starts today and runs through Wednesday, Dec. 28. CATHY KAPULKA / Chronicle Festival of Lights starts today Hanukkah comemmorates event in Jewish history See FESTIVAL / Page A9 C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterFLORAL CITY First is always best, especially for berries. If you get to the market first, you get a better price, said Dudley Calfee, general manager of Ferris Farms in Floral City. For the fifth year in a row, Ferris Farms has harvested the first commercially grown flat of strawberries this growing season, from November to April, in the state of Florida, an honor awarded by the Florida Strawberry Growers Association (FSGA). We dont know what Dudleys doing to keep winning, said Ted Campbell, executive director of the FSGA. We may have to make him retire the award to give someone else a chance. Admitting he was joking, Campbell said Ferris Farms has been consistent in producing strawberries from early October. Most growers dont have ripe fruit until November. The competition for the earliest strawberries was set up years ago for fun, Campbell said. Recognition also is given to growers with the highest yield per acre. The FSGA has about 100 member growers. Id say about 95 percent of our members are in Hillsborough County, Campell said. A few other members are in Polk and Manatee counties, but Ferris Farms is the northernmost strawberry grower in the FSGA. That makes producing the earliest ripe berries all the more extraordinary. The first year we tried it to see if we could do it, Calfee said. Then we wanted to see if we could do it again. After that, winning the recognition became a matter of pride and a part of the farms culture. The strawberries grow on 83 acres of fields on Duval Island in Floral City. Calfee also credits the water surrounding the growing site for providing enough warmth to ripen early strawberries. Calfee is on the board of directors with the FSGA and is chairman of its research committee. The research committee funds projects from a $300,000 budget to First fruits reap reward MATT BECK /Chronicle Dudley Calfee, general manager of Ferris Farms in Floral City, recently received recognition from the Florida Strawberry Grower s Association for harvesting the first commercially harvested flat of strawberries in the 2011-12 growing season. This is the fifth consecutive y ear the farm has received the distinction. Calfee says the 12-acre strawberry field pictured behind him will produce between 35,000-40,000 flats o f berries during the season. Ferris Farms harvests berries over an 83-acre area. Each strawberry field will be picked every three to four days during the season. The season will end in midApril, according to the farms general manager. Floral Citys Ferris Farms harvests states first commercial strawberry crop See FIRST / Page A9 N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Imagine getting the following phone call: Hello, Im calling about the balance of your layaway purchases. You gulp. You still owe $45 or $63 or $109 and youre trying as hard as you can to come up with the balance, but Then the person calling you says, Im calling to tell you someone had paid your balance in full. You can come and pick up your order. For David Kellner, store manager of the Kmart in Crystal River, thats been the most fun part of his job this past week. So far, about 20 anonymous layaway angels in the past three days have come in to the store and paid off the layaway balances of strangers, Kellner said Monday. Layaway angels appear in Citrus Charitable movement has sprung up all across country See ANGELS / Page A9 Associated PressNEW YORK Its been 30 years since gasoline took such a big bite out of the family budget. When the gifts from Grandma are unloaded and holiday travel is over, the typical American household will have spent $4,155 filling up this year, a record. That is 8.4 percent of what the median family takes in, the highest share since 1981. Gas averaged more than $3.50 a gallon this year, another unfortunate record. And next year isnt likely to bring relief. In the past, high gas prices in the United States have gone hand-in-hand with economic good times, making them less damaging to family finances. Now prices are high despite slow economic growth and weak demand. Thats because demand for crude oil is rising globally, especially in the developing nations of Asia and Latin America. But it puts the squeeze on the U.S., where unemployment is high and many people who have jobs arent getting raises. The trap has caught Michael Reed of Charlotte, N.C. He hasnt been able to find work since he lost his computer-support job in 2009. Now high gas prices are claiming more of what he has left. He and his wife wont exchange gifts this Christmas. I try to drive as little as possible so it doesnt take such a chunk out of my wallet, he says. In 1981, when the economy was sliding into recession and oil prices were high because of Middle East turmoil, gas ate up 8.8 percent of the typical family budget, says Fred Rozell of the Oil Price Information Service. Over the past decade, gas has taken up 5.7 percent of Gas prices took toll in 2011 Fuel eats up highest portion of household budgets in 30 years See GAS / Page A2 HEALTH & LIFE: Your brain on bargainsOn a tight budget?

the family budget. If families had spent only 5.7 percent this year, they would have saved $1,300. For this year, gas should average $3.53 per gallon. Thats 76 cents more than last year. Its 29 cents per gallon more than 2008, when gas last set an annual record, $3.24. That year, the price of oil hit a record in the summer but collapsed when the financial crisis struck in the fall. Besides leaving families less money to eat out and go to the movies, high gas prices take a disproportionate toll on consumer confidence. People are more aware of small changes in gas prices because they drive past the signs all the time. And a buck spent on gas has less bang in the economy than, say, a dollar spent at a restaurant. The U.S. is an oilimporting country, so many of the dollars spent on gas ultimately leave the country instead of being invested here in new ventures and jobs. James Hamilton, an economics professor at the University of California, San Diego, who studies energy prices, estimates that high gasoline prices reduced economic growth by about 0.5 percent for the year a substantial hit for an economy only growing at an annual rate of about 2 percent. Still, it could be worse. The U.S. economy is much more fuel-efficient than it was during the oil spikes of the late 1970s and early 1980s. In 1980, for every $1,000 of economic output, 1.07 barrels of oil were consumed. By 2010, it took half that 0.53 barrels, says Judith Dwarkin, chief energy economist at ITG Investment Research. Today, the U.S. uses almost no oil to generate electricity. The percentage of households using heating oil has fallen. And vehicles are less thirsty than ever 20 percent more fuel-efficient than they were in 1980. Also, the low price of natural gas has kept heating and electricity costs down for the same households spending more on gas. Relief from high gas prices is nowhere in sight, though. Ed Morse, head of commodities research at Citibank, expects oil to average $100 per barrel next year, which would eclipse 2011s average of about $95 per barrel. Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at OPIS, expects gasoline prices to approach $4 per gallon again next spring. Drivers are keeping gas guzzlers in the driveway, combining trips and buying more efficient cars. Compared with the year before, American gas consumption has been down every week for more than nine months, according to MasterCard SpendingPulse, a spending survey. But that only helps so much. Hunter Collins, a software support technician who lives in Richmond, Maine, commutes 40 miles each way to his job in Falmouth. He has started to carpool with a colleague and to take his wifes more fuel-efficient car to work when it is his turn to drive. Its still not enough. He says hes going to sell his beloved 8-cylinder Dodge Charger. Shes my baby, but Im going to have to switch to something more economical, he says. A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterHERNANDO Two people were arrested Monday in an alleged shooting incident over drugs and missing cash in Hernando, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Micah Joseph Lamb, 300 E. Wilda Ave., Inverness, was charged with two counts of attempted murder while Kimberly Anne Ericson, same address, was charged with two counts of complicity in the crime. According to the report, Lamb became enraged after he went to the shooting victims residence to purchase drugs and had money stolen from him. Lamb and Ericson reportedly returned to the scene of the missing money and drug purchase to confront the residents. The argument escalated and Ericson reportedly told Lamb where he could locate a gun hidden in the backyard. Lamb allegedly retrieved the gun, went to a closed side door and shot at it. The two shooting victims were hit with multiple shotgun pellets in the back, neck and buttocks areas. A witness walking down the street reported hearing shots and seeing Lamb running from the residence with a gun and getting into a car and leaving. Lamb was soon apprehended. No bond was set for Lamb and Ericson. Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at 352-564-2925 or at asidibe @chronicleonline.com. A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterINVERNESS An Inverness man used a social networking site to keep abreast of a burglary victims schedule, breaking into the victims home and hauling off valuables while the person was out of town, according to a Citrus County Sheriffs Office report. The alleged thief also contributed to the delinquency of a minor by having the youth help in committing the crimes. James Joseph Gleason, 20, 124 Talmage Ave., was arrested Dec. 15 and is facing charges of burglary (becoming armed), grand theft, contributing to the delinquency and trafficking in stolen properties. Gleason reportedly told investigators he knew no one was going to be at his target home because the homeowner posted on their Facebook site they were going to be at an event. Gleason and his juvenile co-defendant reportedly went to the house, broke a back window and stole numerous firearms and accessories. The pair reportedly took, among other things, laptops and even an urn containing ashes. However, Gleason reportedly told investigators, they felt a pang of remorse and returned the urn. Gleason reportedly proceeded to get rid of many of the firearms to pay for his childs needs. Investigators said Gleason told them where to find most of the items. Bond was $34,500. Other major arrests: Lawrence James Vickers, 44, Crystal River, Saturday of trafficking in cocaine. According to the report, a gold Cadillac was stopped for a faulty tag light and while the deputy was writing a warning for the driver, a K-9 officer arrived on the scene and the dog started sniffing. The dog soon alerted officers to the presence of narcotics. Investigators ordered the driver of the vehicle out of the car and patted him down, but no drugs were found. Officers soon turned their attention to Vickers, who was a passenger in the vehicle. On the ground near the passenger door, officers reportedly noticed a baggie of crack cocaine and ordered Vickers out of the vehicle. Investigators soon noticed another baggie which seemed to contain powder cocaine. As Vickers emerged from the vehicle, more baggies were found. A pat down of Vickers revealed more than $3,000 in cash. The crack cocaine weighed 14.5 grams and the powder cocaine was 4.5 grams. Vickers bond was $50,000. Shawn Allen Thomas, 35, 1574 S. Iroquois Ave., Homosassa, on Dec. 14 of burglary becoming armed, plan and supervise trafficking in stolen goods, grand theft and providing false information to a pawn broker. According to the report, Thomas broke into a Crystal River home and stole, among other things, several firearms and a Nintendo DS XL. Thomas reportedly proceeded to pawn the stolen items. Bond was $39,000. Emilio Price, 20, St. Petersburg, Saturday on a Pinellas County warrant for multiple counts of possession of marijuana. Bond was $30,000. Chronicle reporter A.B.

Around THE STATE Miami Education board OKs new FCAT scoresThe state Board of Education approved a new set of passing scores for Floridas standardized test Monday designed to ensure students are ready for college, but which could cause more students to fail. The board voted unanimously in favor of the new scores for the revised Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test in math and reading during a conference call. Under the new scores, the percentage of students not earning a high enough score to advance to the fourth grade or graduate from high school is likely to increase. According to state estimates, the number of students not passing the third grade FCAT reading exam required to advance to the fourth grade would rise from 16 to 18 percent. Meanwhile, the number earning a high enough score to pass the 10th grade exam, required to graduate, is slated to decline from 60 to 52 percent. Jacksonville Winn-Dixie stores sold to Bi-Lo for $560M The Jacksonville-based supermarket chain WinnDixie is being sold in a deal valued at $560 million to BiLo LLC, the companies said Monday, creating a huge grocery operator in the South. Shares of Winn-Dixie, which has more than twice the number of stores of its buyer, jumped about 70 percent in early trading. The company had struggled in the past, entering into bankruptcy protection in 2005, but has been revamping operations in recent years. The combined company will have about 690 stores and 63,000 workers in eight states in the southern U.S. Winn-Dixie Stores Inc. will become a privately held subsidiary and its ticker will be removed from the Nasdaq. Bi-Lo is a private company.Gainesville Teens break into restaurant, cook meal Police said two teenagers broke into a north Florida Chinese restaurant and cooked some chicken gizzards. Gainesville police spokesman Jorge Campos saidthe 14-year-old boys were arrested Saturday night at China House restaurant. He saidthey must have been hungry and couldnt find any money. They were charged with burglary and petit theft. From wire reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 TUESDAY, DECEMBER 20, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Clarifications A story on Page A1 of Fridays edition of the Chronicle Lawsuit alleges Medicare fraud at CMHS, requires clarification. The story may have given readers the impression the federal government initiated a lawsuit against the hospital. That is not so. Former hospital business manager Randy Stein is the plaintiff on behalf of the government. However, the U.S. Attorneys Office must approve any agreements or settlements in the case short of a jurys decision. A photo on page A1 of Sundays edition, Sweet, sweet Florida history, needs clarification. The photo, showing a recipe card for orange meringue pie, was from the countys historical archives. The picture was meant to help illustrate Floridas citrus history and did not contain the entire recipe. However, if you go to www.food.com and type orange meringue pie in the search box, about 12 recipes will appear. Happy baking! M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS Another check is going in the mail to Citrus Memorial Health System for its hospital treatment of charity care. The Citrus County Hospital Board of Trustees approved a $68,371 payment Monday after a review of patient billing showed trustees owed that amount for the hospitals services to the poor. The trustees attorney, Bill Grant, suggested the board approve the amount but hold off the payment until the boards Jan. 9 meeting. Grant noted the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation was recently sued for Medicare fraud by a former business manager and hinted more legal trouble may be on the way. Grant said trustees could be on the hook for paying fines in legal proceedings against the foundation involving Medicare fraud because trustees lease the hospital to the foundation. Trustees, however, said they have an agreement with the hospital to reimburse for charity care once their finance director, Harry Kilgore, reviews and approves billing statements. I want us to stay true to our word, board Chairman Michael Smallridge said. Trustee Dr. V. Upender Rao said the public would frown on the trustees withholding of a payment. I think it would be bad P .R., he said. Its not a big deal either way except to the community at large. Trustee Ed Lytton said he didnt see any risk in making the payment. If it were a million dollars, Id say hold it, he said. For $68,000, its not worth the effort. In other business the board: Decided to continue meeting in Grants law office conference room until after a judges decision on the constitutionality of a state law that gives trustees oversight of the hospital. Trustees have considered moving their meeting location to a place that provides better public access. Heard Smallridges plan to establish public stakeholder meetings to begin formulating a communitywide health plan. The meetings will begin in early 2012. Backed in concept Smallridges proposal to provide a program for non-emergency charity care to qualified citizens. The plan, modeled after one in Lake City, would allow qualified individuals up to $1,500 in free medical care with participating physicians and medical centers. Smallridge said he is still gathering information before formally presenting it for board approval. Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com. Board OKs charity check to CMHS Trustees approve more than $68K for services to poor Road work delayed MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle The resurfacing project on North Turkey Oak Drive from County Road 495 to North Holiday Drive in Crystal River has been deferre d from 2013 to 2014. Bill Grant attorney for CMHS trustees suggested the board OK the amount but hold off paying it. C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterFive road-resurfacing projects in Citrus County will be delayed because state revenue collection fell short of its forecast. The following affected roads are: North Turkey Oak Drive, Crystal River, from County Road 495 to North Holiday Drive resurfacing deferred from 2013 to 2014. County Road 488 (Dunnellon Road) from U.S. 19, Crystal River, to West Rainbow Street, Dunnellon resurfacing deferred from 2104 to 2015. County Road 488 from West Rainbow Street to U.S. 41, Dunnellon resurfacing deferred from 2015 to 2016. County Road 495 (North Citrus Avenue), Dunnellon, from West Dunklin Street to West Riverbend Road resurfacing deferred from 2016 to 2017. North Elkcam Boulevard, Citrus Springs, from North Deltona Boulevard to County Road 488 resurfacing delayed from 2016 to 2017. Were disappointed that the projects have been deferred, said Ken Frink, the countys public works director. But the county has adequate resources to handle any maintenance required during the one-year periods. The funding comes from the Small County Outreach Program (SCOP), Frink said. As Citrus County is the only small county within District 7, it gets all the SCOP funding. According to Lee Royal with Florida Department of Transportation District 7, the October 2011 Revenue Estimating Conference reported a $1.2 billion reduction in revenue collection. The state estimated the revenue from gasoline taxes, titles and transportation-related fees. The net commitment impact to the work program totals $916 million, Royal advised counties in District 7, which includes Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties. The impact to District 7 is $73.1 million. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicleonline. com or 352-564-2916.

The Nuclear Information and Resource Service, the Ecology Party of Florida and the Green Party of Florida have filed a legal challenge to the application for the reactors proposed for a plant about 10 miles northeast of Crystal River, alleging Progress Energy didnt adequately analyze environmental impacts. Progress Energy and the NRC staff deny that. The public meeting allows residents to comment on the proceedings. Public statements will be heard from 1 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 10 p.m. Jan. 12 at the Plantation on Crystal River, 9301 W. Fort Island Trail on County Road 44, west of U.S. 19.

Nuclear plants up for debate Residents may speak at Jan. 12 public meeting Associated PressLAKELAND A central Florida police officer was in critical condition Monday after being shot while checking on a complaint about three suspicious men near an apartment complex, authorities said. Lakeland Police Officer Arnulfo Crispin underwent surgery early Monday and his condition was grave, police spokeswoman Ann Dinges said. Crispin, 25, radioed shortly around 10 p.m. Sunday that he had stopped to talk to three suspicious men near an apartment complex, Police Chief Lisa Womack said. What happened to Crispin next remains unclear. When backup officers arrived, they found him shot and unresponsive, Dinges said. Police cordoned off a large section of the area overnight as officers searched vehicles and went door-to-door seeking information about the suspects. At least 12 law enforcement agencies offered assistance in the manhunt, Dinges said. One man, 19-year-old Kyle Williams of Lakeland, faces a charge of attempted murder of a law enforcement officer. Williams surrendered Monday morning. His mother had come to the police station and talked to him on the phone while she was there. She put Williams on the phone with an officer, who instructed him to turn himself in to an officer on a Lakeland street, Dinges said. No other suspects were being sought, Dinges said. We are certain we have the right individual in custody, Chief Lisa Womack said at a news conference. Lakeland police Lt. Al Wilson said Williams has a criminal history and may have some gang affiliations. Crispin has been a member of the 226-member department for 18 months. Suspect in custody after police officer shot

Associated PressMIAMI Last year, Florida legislators made historic changes to education. Tenure for new teachers was eliminated. Instructor evaluations were revamped and linked to student test scores. And a new compensation system was passed to reward those whose students achieve the highest gains. In the 2012 session, which starts Jan. 10, the focus is likely to shift from K-12 to higher education. Gov. Rick Scott and others say they want to find ways to make the state university system more effective and boost the number of students graduating with degrees in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Whether the Legislature is ready to pass widesweeping changes to higher education is another matter. To date, no bills have been filed and several legislators said they are still researching what possible action to take. Redrawing the states congressional and legislative districts and the budget are likely to be at the top of the agenda, and lawmakers will also be focused on effectively implementing last years K-12 overhaul. I hope we can make some changes, said House Speaker Dean Cannon, RWinter Park. But my real goal is to get the dialogue going, and then hopefully the leaders that follow me can continue that. Scott caused uproar in academia this fall when he urged the state to look at the employment outcomes for all degree programs and pointed to anthropology as one field of study where more people werent needed. He also touted the higher education overhaul pushed by Republican presidential candidate and Texas Gov. Rick Perry. The Texas plan includes ideas like basing professor evaluations on student reviews and how many students they teach. So far, its not gathering much momentum in Florida. I dont think anyone would seriously say thats the sole basis for evaluating faculty, said Rep. Bill Proctor, R-St. Augustine. Proctor, chairman of the House Education Committee, said legislators and staff are focusing on nearly a dozen areas for potential changes including tuition, accountability and sharpening university mission statements. Controversial topics like tenure havent been addressed yet, Proctor said. Its a high-profile issue but its really not the thing were looking at too much, Proctor said. Right now if I were to say whats (the) highest concern, its sharpening the focus of our mission because its reasonably clear theres not going to be a lot of state money for the university system in the foreseeable future, so we have to make sure we are spending it in the right places for the right things. Even Scott conceded changes might not happen this session. I know this sessions going to be harder to get things done just because we are going to spend so much time on redistricting, Scott said. But I think to the benefit of our students I think the earlier we make sure that individuals are getting degrees in areas that they can get jobs its good for the state.

Inheriting power from his father in 1994, he led his nation through a devastating famine while frustrating the U.S. and other global powers with an on-again, off-again approach to talks on giving up nuclear arms in return for energy and other assistance. Kim was one of the last remnants of a Cold Warera that ended years earlier in most other countries. His death was announced Monday by state television two days after he died. North Koreas news agency reported he had died at 8:30 a.m. Saturday after having a heart attack on a train, adding he had been treated for cardiac and cerebrovascular diseases for a long time. He was 69, according to official records, but some reports indicate he was 70. Kim, who reputedly had a taste for cigars, cognac and gourmet cuisine, is believed to have suffered a stroke in 2008 but he had appeared relatively vigorous in photos and video from recent trips to China and Russia and in numerous trips around the country documented by state media. His longtime pursuit of nuclear weapons and his militarys repeated threats to South Korea and the U.S. stoked worries that fighting might break out again on the Korean peninsula or North Korea might provide weapons of mass destruction to terrorist movements. The Korean War ended more than 50 years ago in a cease-fire, and the two sides remain technically in a state of war. Kim Jong Il, who took power after the death of his father, unveiled his third son as his successor in September 2010, putting the 20something Kim Jong Un in high-ranking posts. On Monday, the North Korean news agency dubbed the son a great successor as the country rallied around him. Few firm facts are available when it comes to North Korea, and not much is clear about Kim Jong Il, the man known as the Dear Leader. North Korean legend has it that Kim was born on Mount Paektu, one of Koreas most cherished sites, in 1942, a birth heralded in the heavens by a pair of rainbows and a brilliant new star. Soviet records, however, indicate he was born in Siberia in 1941. His father, Kim Il Sung, is still revered as the founder of North Korea. The elder Kim fought for independence from Koreas colonial ruler, Japan, from a base in Russia for years. He returned to Korea in 1945, emerging as a communist leader and becoming North Koreas first leader in 1948. He meshed Stalinist ideology with a cult of personality that encompassed him and his son. Their portraits hang in every building in North Korea, and every dutiful North Korean wears a Kim Il Sung lapel pin. Even before he took over, there were signs the younger Kim would maintain and perhaps exceed his fathers hard-line stance. South Korea has accused Kim of masterminding a 1983 bombing that killed 17 South Korean officials visiting Burma, now known as Myanmar.

Apopka Ave., Inverness www.InvernessHearing.com 726-4327 Since 1983 Professional Hearing Centers 000A04V Associated PressNEW YORK The stock market took a late afternoon fall Monday after European Union finance ministers failed to come up with the full amount of money pledged for a bailout fund. Banks led the way down. Morgan Stanley dropped 5.5 percent and Bank of America Corp. sank 4 percent, the biggest fall in the Dow Jones Industrial average. The worry looming over banks stocks is if Europes debt crisis spins out of control, European banks would fail and damage U.S. banks. Big banks in Europe and the U.S. are linked through the web of global financial markets. If Europe is going to be bring us down its going to come through the financial firms, said J.J. Kinahan, chief derivatives strategist at TD Ameritrade. The Dow lost 100.13 points, or 0.8 percent to close at 11,766.26. The average lost 55 points in the last hour of trading as reports emerged the E.U. finance ministers couldnt drum up the full $261 billion they planned to give to the International Monetary Fund. European leaders had pledged the money for a special IMF fund to help struggling European countries at a summit meeting less than two weeks ago. Cautious comments from the head of the European Central Bank also helped push stocks lower. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 14.31 points, or 1.2 percent, to 1,205.35. The Nasdaq composite index fell 32.19 points, or 1.3 percent, to 2,523.14. Mario Draghi, the ECB president, said Monday the central bank was looking for ways to keep the Eurozones bailout fund working even if credit rating agencies strip France of its AAA grade. The bailout fund depends on the top ratings of France, Germany and the countries that contribute to it. Draghi also restated his view large-scale government bond purchases were outside the central banks responsibility. In the U.S., a gauge of sentiment among builders inched up to its highest level since May 2010. The National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo builder sentiment index added two points to 21 in December. Any reading below 50 still reflects a negative outlook. Among companies making large moves Monday: Cablevision Systems Corp. rose 2 percent after an analyst from Citibank said a recent drop in the companys stock seemed way overdone. The stock has lost 27 percent from the end of October through last Friday following the unexpected resignation of its chief operating officer. Bank of America ended the day at $4.99. The drop puts it at risk of further selling pressure because many mutual funds have rules against holding stocks that trade below the $5 mark. Commercial Metals Co. dropped 1.4 percent. The companys board rejected a $1.7 billion takeover bid from investor Carl Icahn, saying the proposed deal undervalued the company.

O PINION Page A8 TUESDAY, DECEMBER 20, 2011 Thank school workers You would be surprised at how many school staff members touch your childs life in a day. After they leave the house, a bus driver brings laughing, noisy children to school safely. If you are driving them to school, you will possibly pass a crossing guard who watches all the traffic. As they arrive at school, members of the school staff greet them to make sure they get into school without a problem. Cafeteria workers make and serve a healthy breakfast and others make sure they dont slip or slide as the floors are cleaned all the time. Before the school day actually starts, some students are in labs working on math and reading skills with a paraprofessional and other students are learning to put on the morning show from a media specialist. The educational day has begun. Some students may start with art, music, physical education or technology classes taught by highly qualified teachers in their field. Classroom teachers teach reading, math, science, social studies, writing, etc. Some students leave their homeroom for extra help in reading or math, speech and even for gifted education. They check books out from the library, which is staffed by a certified teacher with a library science degree and most likely a trained teachers aide. Its lunchtime and its back to the cafeteria for a lunch that meets federal requirements with adults in the cafeteria. The custodial crew is cleaning restrooms, the cafeteria floor and is starting to vacuum in the classrooms. Paraprofessionals (aides) work with small groups all day long. Dont forget the office staff who checks your childs attendance, answers the phones and questions of many people, does the ordering of materials, takes temperatures and hands out medications. Guidance makes sure those students without receive clothing and food and dry the tears of those who have lost a loved one. Please dont forget the administration that keeps all of these people scheduled and know children by their first names. Thank someone you know who works for the education of our children! Cathy Brust Lecanto Hospital disupte Thank you, Mr. Mulligan! Finally, a thorough explanation of the CMH debacle anyone can understand. Now I can understand the reaction of CMH to the geriatric medical complex that was proposed by a citizen group focused on economic development in Citrus County. CMH does not want any competition coming from the private sector in spite of the financial and social benefit such a medical complex would bring to Citrus County businesses and citizens. If it will not support a private enterprise solution to deliver an economic benefit to Citrus County and a medical service to the largest percentage retirement population in Florida, then it should seek county and state approval to fund such a project itself. This project should be moved on by CMH and the Board of County Commissionsers just in case the Port of Citrus project does not prove feasible. The geriatric medical complex is considered to be a very feasible project by those in the private enterprise, medical and development communities. Tom Paslay Sugarmill Woods P erhaps not since Madalyn Murray OHair and Carl Sagan has there been such an evangelical atheist as Christopher Hitchens, the writer and social commentator who died last week after a long and public battle with esophageal cancer. Hitchens railed against those who believe in God. While an original writer, and smart, there was nothing original about his unbelief. Such views have been expressed since the dawn of humanity. They have also been answered by some of the wisest people who have ever lived. There is a difference between smart and wise. As that Scripture in which Hitchens disbelieved says, The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. (Proverbs 9:10) I have always found atheists to be interesting people because they just may be the worlds smallest minority group, one that gets smaller still as its members pass on and meet God face to face. Still, atheists demand physical proof of Gods existence, as if they could bring God down and make Him into their image. What kind of God would that be? He would be their equal and, thus, not God at all. Evidence, alone, has never moved anyone from unbelief to faith. If proof were enough, all of the unbelieving contemporaries of Jesus (and Moses) would have believed in God because of the miracles they performed. Two people presented with exactly the same information can respond in opposite ways. Faith is not based solely on facts. It is a gift from a God who exists. Hitchens wrote a book called God is Not Great. Its a clever title, but how would he have known, since they had not been properly introduced? C.S. Lewis, once an atheist and thus conversant with the subject, wrote after his conversion, I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen. Not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. Some people exist, however nervously, believing that this life is all there is. The late singer Peggy Lee put the result of such faith this way: Is that all there is? If thats all there is to life, then lets break out the booze and have a ball, if thats all there is. Why contribute to charity, or perform other good deeds? Without a source to inspire charity, such acts are sentimental affectations, devoid of meaning and purpose. If survival of the fittest is the rule, let only the fit survive. That was the sentiment of Ebenezer Scrooge before his visitation by those three spirits and his subsequent transformation. Let the poor and starving die, he said, ...and decrease the surplus population. Who is to say such a notion is wrong without a standard by which to judge wrong. To object to God is to create morality from a Gallup Poll. In Gallup We Trust doesnt have the same authority. Hitchens was a gifted writer, but who gave him the gift? Why was he not a gifted actor, surgeon or athlete? Why was he not talentless? Was it an evolutionary accident, which would mean his gift and his life were meaningless and merely a chasing after the wind? (See Ecclesiastes) Apparently he thought so. An atheist will tell you he doesnt need God in order to be good, or perform good works. Maybe not, but the very notion of good must have both a definition and a definer. Only God is good, said Jesus. (Mark 10:18) Who is the author of evil? And if God is nonexistent, why do we call it evil? Is one persons evil another persons good? Does such a view lead to ethics that must inevitably be situational? Scripture warns, The fool has said in his heart there is no God. (Psalm 14:1) In this season when many celebrate the object of their faith, there is no joy in the death of one who had faith that God does not exist. Hitchens now knows the truth and that can only be the worst possible news for him. As for the atheists still with us, Christmas is a reminder there is still time to believe and receive the ultimate gift.

However, that didnt happen, so the trip home meant slogging through dusty, sandy roads in dry weather and muddy pools in wet weather. For decades, the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) had discussed the roads. When the developer disappeared from the picture, residents realized that it would be up to them to make things happen. They worked with the county, and focused on mobilizing resident and non-resident owners to cede rights of way and agree to assessments for the paving project. It all came together at a recent BOCC meeting, when the board unanimously confirmed a resolution to create a special assessment district plan for the project. Kudos to this resident group for doing the right thing the right way. They did their research, they approached the county with a reasonable request and they agreed to shoulder expenses for work that would directly benefit them, but also benefit the county. This is a nice neighborhood that will certainly increase in value when the roadway improvements are completed. Having felt misled, these Inverness-area residents situation varies significantly from that of owners who knowingly buy on private roads at lower prices, but who later complain to local government about the sorry state of their roads. However, the sound approach employed by the Inverness Village Unit 4 group can serve as an example for how neighbors unified in a cause and willing to make an investment can change their community for the better.

And she said no, she would get it when she comes back. While she was up there, someone else was given the dog. They told us they would try and get the dog back and they would call us back. They would let us know. We got no phone call, no puppy, and we are heartbroken.Specific slippers Where can I get a full pair of bedroom slippers, not clogs or slides or mules or scuffs?

The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE A group of higher education and business leaders said in a report issued Monday that the states colleges and universities should better coordinate on what they do, set goals for increased hightech degree production, and that lawmakers should spend money on schools based on performance. The reports call for additional coordination probably isnt a surprise, coming from a group called the Higher Education Coordinating Council. It set out in part to look for ways the state universities and the college system can better work together to improve access to degrees and improve the efficiency of the system for the state. It began its work before he took office but the groups recommendations mirror calls from Gov. Rick Scott, who has said that Floridas universities should focus more on production of degrees in science, technology, engineering and math, and has talked about university degrees as a commodity, with the consumer being the taxpayer who is paying for the university system, more so than the student. The HECC offered several general recommendations for more central planning of the education system, looking at benefits to society of the system, and less of a free market-based approach, where degree production would be determined more by demand of students. Twenty-first century economic realities and the need for Florida to compete in attracting high-tech, highwage jobs suggests that the state should leverage its resources to ensure that Floridas talent is developed and provided the tools to achieve lifetime learning and success, the report said. The traditional charge of What is best for the student? must now be expanded to include what is best for the taxpayer, the economy and the state as a whole. This is also an opportunity to ensure the skills and knowledge imparted to students are consistent with the traditional values and ideals of public morality which are essential to the general welfare of the state and its citizens, the group said. Which degrees might be consistent with public morality and perhaps more important which ones arent wasnt addressed in the groups report. But the council said that the states universities should identify their strengths and focus on them, funneling students in particular areas to a couple of strong institutions, rather than having all of the schools offer that program, for example. HECC also said the council should get an annual list of prospective programs being planned, as a way to avoid duplication. And, whether or not those programs should start at all should be guided by comparative cost analyses and employment demand, HECC said, echoing another idea put forth by Scott, who has said that degrees in areas that arent promising in terms of jobs should be reduced. The panel also suggested a new funding formula for the State University System and the Florida College System, based on performancebased accountability, though the panel goes into little detail about that. Already, a small part of the states workforce education system is funded based on performance earmarks, but the university system has no such benchmarks that ultimately determine a universitys appropriation. Among its other recommendations in the report, the group said: Various elements of the education system should have goals for increased degree completion, with a particular emphasis on STEM degree production. Incentives should be provided to encourage STEM education. The Legislature should create authority for state colleges and universities to establish and have oversight of their own charter schools preK through 12. The Legislature should align financial aid and grant programs to encourage and accelerate access, graduation and time-to-degree. The grants should be available for summer sessions. The council said it will continue to meet next year. the practice of Judaism. They (Jews of Judea) won the war in 165 B.C.E. and according to the Hebrew Calendar, on the 25th day of Kislev the Temple in Jerusalem was rededicated. When the victorious Jews entered the temple for the first time, they found it had been desecrated by the Greeks, he said. There was only enough pure olive oil to last for one day for the Menorah (a seven-branch candelabra), he said. It was supposed to be lit continuously, the eternal light. He said that oil miraculously lasted eight days and provided enough time to process a new batch of olive oil. Since that time, the Rabbis have mandated that every year Jews must light an eight-branch candelabrum still popularly known as a Menorah. Kamlot said Hanukkah, also called the Festival of Lights, celebrates the two major events the religious victory and the miracle of the oil. Kamlot said the Congregation Beth Sholoms temple is the only one in Citrus County and it hosts 85 families. The holiday begins at sundown on Dec. 20, and on that evening the Citrus County Historical Society will extend the courthouse museum hours to 8 p.m. There will be Hanukkah music and free food, including Latkes (potato pancakes), Sufganiyot (donut holes) and coffee and tea. Its custom to eat certain food that are made in oil, he said. We invite everyone to come down and see the lighting. Hanukkah will run through the evening of Dec. 28.

Most of the projects come through the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. On Monday, Ferris Farms picked and shipped 2,000 flats of strawberries. It also has diversified to offer many other products, including the citrus fruit it started with more than 75 years ago and blueberries that are ready when the strawberry season finishes. Its store offers jams, jellies and strawberry milkshakes. Recently, Calfee brought out a new food group: beef. Anyone who would like to try out home-grown, Duval Island-reared beef will find it in the Ferris store a selection of steaks, roasts and hamburger. We have been raising Black Angus beef for the past few years and selling the calves to kids for 4-H competition and have won our share of top awards, Calfee said. We are pleased to offer such a high quality, natural beef product to our loyal customers. Calfee said the beef is free of hormones and antibiotics, and naturally delicious. He got the idea of selling beef in the Ferris store after a restaurateur, Wolfgang Wolfy Schwickerath, bought one of the 4-H calves and served the beef in his restaurant, The Shamrock Inn, in Floral City. The beef is perfect, Schwickerath said. I will buy another one of those calves at the fair. Ferris is likely best known for supplying the strawberries for the annual Floral City Strawberry Festival, set for the weekend of March 3 and 4 at Floral Park in Floral City and sponsored by the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce. As the 1.7 million strawberry plants can be picked every three to four days, the berries should be abundant. Ferris Farms retail store is at 7607 S.

One lucky recipient was totally caught off guard. Laura Tucker had come home to an answering machine message, asking her to call Kmart in Crystal River. When she did, she learned her $65 layaway balance had been paid for. At first I thought it was a joke, she said. I had never heard of anything like this before. I wanted to say thank you to whoever the person was, but they wouldnt tell me. I think its wonderful. What a surprise. Its a phenomena thats been sweeping the nation, with reports from Ohio to Kentucky to Las Vegas, Miami, Indiana, Iowa and Illinois. According to Mondays Miami Herald someone paid for more than $400 dollars in layaway gifts at a Hialeah Kmart on Saturday, and at an Ocala Walmart, a man bought $2,500 worth of $100 gift cards for customers. In Winter Garden, the Herald reports, donations at the local Kmart have reached $5,000 and as high as $15,000 in Orange County, Calif. It happened last year, but nothing like this year, Kellner said. People are giving astronomically. Its the power of the Internet. Its happening all over. He said some of the people he has called break out in tears. Others ask, Are you pulling my leg?

Travel halted across Great Plains Associated PressALBUQUERQUE, N.M. A late-autumn snowstorm lumbered into the Great Plains on Monday, unleashing snow and fierce winds that turned roads to ice, reduced visibility to zero and jeopardized thousands of holiday motorists travel plans just two days before the official start of winter. The storm was blamed for at least two deaths in Colorado. A guard and an inmate were killed after a prison van lost control on an icy highway five miles east of Limon on Colorados plains. Eight other inmates and a prison employee were hospitalized with moderate to serious injuries, the Colorado State Patrol said. From northern New Mexico and the Texas Panhandle through Oklahoma and northwestern Kansas, blizzard conditions put state road crews on alert and had motorists taking refuge and early exits off major roads. In northern New Mexico, snow and ice forced the closure of all roads from the town of Raton to the Texas and Oklahoma borders about 90 miles away. Hotels in Clayton, N.M., just east of where the three states touch, were nearly full. Linda Pape, general manager of the Clayton Super 8 motel, said it was packed with unhappy skiers who had been headed to lodges in Colorado and elsewhere in New Mexico. They lost a day or two of skiing, and they had budgeted an amount of money they were going to spend, and now they have to spend more staying somewhere else, she said. Pape said its not uncommon for skiers to get stuck in Clayton during the winter, and she keeps two freezers and a refrigerator stocked in case roads are closed. They are not happy, but we are not letting them go hungry, she said. The storm came after much of the country had a relatively mild fall. With the exception of the October snowstorm blamed for 29 deaths on the East Coast, theres been little rain or snow. Many of the areas hit Monday enjoyed relatively balmy 60-degree temperatures just 24 hours earlier. The snow moved into the Oklahoma Panhandle early Monday morning, and 1.5 inches accumulated in about an hour, said Vicki Roberts, who owns the Black Mesa Bed and Breakfast in Kenton. Her inn sits at the base of the 4,973-foot-tall Black Mesa, the highest point in Oklahoma. Looking out her window, she couldnt see it. I have a mail route and Im not going, Roberts said. You just dont get out in this. Well be socked in here. If we lose power, well just read a book in front of the fireplace. Travel throughout the region was difficult. New Mexico shut down a portion of Interstate 25, the major route heading northeast of Santa Fe into Colorado and Clayton police dispatcher Cindy Blackwell said her phones were ringing off the hook with calls from numerous motorists stuck on rural roads. Plant fire Associated Press A firefighter climbs a ladder truck Monday to direct water onto flames during a fire at the Fur Breeders Agricultural Cooperative in Sandy, Utah. Shell shuts drilling rig after fluid leak NEW ORLEANS Royal Dutch Shell said it has shut down a drilling rig off the coast of Alabama after about 7,600 gallons of synthetic and biodegradable drilling fluid leaked. Shell said the leak was not from a well on the ocean floor. That is what happened in the massive 2010 BP oil spill. This drilling site was in the same Mississippi Canyon region as the BP spill and is some 7,300 feet deep. The Coast Guard said the problem was reported Sunday and the leaking line was connected to a vessel supplying the drilling fluid. It said more than half of the leaking fluid was oil. Closing Associated Press A boy plays Monday amid garbage at the landfill Bordo Poniente on the outskirts of Mexico City. The city will close one of the worlds largest dumps by Dec. 31 and will instead turn the garbage from millions of people into reusable materials and energy, Mayor Marcelo Ebrard announced Monday. Thousands mourn Czech president PRAGUE Braving the freezing cold, thousands of Czechs bid a personal farewell Monday to former President Vaclav Havel, who led the peaceful revolution that toppled the communist regime in 1989. Mourners waited patiently in a long line in front of the Prague Crossroads at the citys Old Town, where the coffin with Havels body went on display Monday. Many were carrying flowers to honor Havel, who died Sunday at age 75. The government announced a three-day official mourning period will start Wednesday and said it will hold a state funeral, including a Mass, on Friday at the countrys biggest and most famous church, St. Vitus Cathedral. A private funeral for family members will follow at a crematory, Prague Archbishop Dominik Duka said. Prime Minister Petr Necas urged Czech citizens to observe a minute of silence Friday at noon and his government proposed a special law recognizing Havels contribution to freedom and democracy. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A10 TUESDAY, DECEMBER 20, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressBAGHDAD Iraqs Shiite-led government issued an arrest warrant Monday for the Sunni vice president, accusing him of running a hit squad that assassinated government and security officials extraordinary charges a day after the last U.S. troops left the country. The vice president, Tariq al-Hashemi, left Baghdad on Sunday for the semiautonomous Iraqi region of Kurdistan, presumably hoping Kurdish authorities would not turn him in. Investigative judges banned him the same day from traveling outside of Iraq. The move against the countrys highest-ranking Sunni official marked a sharp escalation in sectarian tensions, raising fears of a resurgence of large-scale bloodshed. Although many Iraqis welcomed the American withdrawal, ending the nine-year U.S. war, there are also considerable fears here that violence will worsen. Iraq is slipping into its worst nightmares now, and Iraqi people will pay a high price because of the struggle among political blocs after the pullout of U.S. troops, said Baghdadbased political analyst Kadhum al-Muqdadi, a Shiite. White House spokesman Jay Carney said the Obama administration had expressed its concerns to all of the parties involved regarding the issuing of the warrant. We are urging all sides to work to resolve differences peacefully and through dialogue in a manner consistent with the rule of law and the democratic political process, Carney said. Sunnis suspected the charges against al-Hashemi were politically motivated. Al-Hashemi is an old rival of Prime Minister Nouri alMaliki, and the arrest order came two days after the main Sunni-backed political bloc, Iraqiya, suspended its participation in parliament because al-Maliki refused to give up control over key posts. Al-Maliki, a Shiite, has made a series of moves in recent months to consolidate his hold on power. Hundreds of former members of Saddam Husseins Baath Party have been rounded up, allegedly as security threats, although no proof has been given. North Koreans mourn Kim Jong Il Youngest son proclaimed successor Associated PressPYONGYANG, North Korea North Koreans marched by the thousands Monday to their capitals landmarks to mourn Kim Jong Il, many crying uncontrollably and flailing their arms in grief over the death of their Dear Leader. North Korean state media proclaimed his youngest son, Kim Jong Un, a Great Successor, while a vigilant world watched for any signs of a turbulent transition to the untested leader in an unpredictable nation known to be pursuing nuclear weapons. South Koreas military went on high alert in the face of the Norths 1.2 million-strong armed forces following news of Kims death after 17 years in power. North Korea said Kim died of a heart attack Saturday while carrying out official duties on a train trip. President Barack Obama agreed by phone with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak to closely monitor developments. On the streets of the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, people wailed in grief, some kneeling on the ground or bowing repeatedly. Children and adults laid flowers at key memorials. A tearful Kim Yong Ho said Kim Jong Il had made peoples lives happier. That is what he was doing when he died: working, traveling on a train, he said. Other North Koreans walked past a giant painting of Kim Jong Il and his late father, national founder Kim Il Sung, standing together on Mount Paektu, Kim Jong Ils official birthplace. Wreaths were neatly placed below the painting. How could the heavens be so cruel? Please come back, general. We cannot believe youre gone, Hong Son Ok shouted, her body shaking wildly during an interview with North Koreas official television. A foreigner who teaches at a university in Pyongyang told The Associated Press students told about Kims death looked very serious but didnt show any outward emotion. There was a blanket of silence, said the teacher, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of worries about his security. People were going about their business. Lots of people were lining up to lay flowers at official portraits. People looked a little stunned and very serious, but composed and respectful. He passed away too suddenly to our profound regret, said a statement carried by the Norths official Korean Central News Agency. The heart of Kim Jong Il stopped beating, but his noble and august name and benevolent image will always be remembered by our army and people. He was 69, according to official records, though some reports indicate he was 70. Associated Press North Koreans cry and scream in a display of mourning for their leader Kim Jong Il at the foot of a giant statue of his father Kim Il Sung in Pyongyang, North Korea, Monday after the leaders death was announced.

Attacks hurt Gingrich in Iowa, no letup pre-caucus Associated PressDAVENPORT, Iowa More than $1 million in negative advertising much of it bankrolled by Mitt Romneys allies has eroded Newt Gingrichs standing in Iowa and thrown the Republican presidential race here wide open two weeks before the first votes. The former House speakers Iowa slide mirrors his newfound troubles nationally, and it has boosted Romneys confidence while fueling talk that libertarian-leaning Texas Rep. Ron Paul could pull off a win in the leadoff caucus state Jan. 3. Its very disappointing to see so many of my friends who are running put out such negative junk, Gingrich said Monday as he arrived in Davenport, poking at his opponents even as he insisted he was running an upbeat campaign. I really wish they would have the courage to be positive. Despite his chiding, attacks against him are all but certain to continue. For one, the Restore Our Future political action committee, made up of former Romney staffers from his failed 2008 bid, plans to spend $1.4 million more over the next two weeks, including on a new ad beginning Tuesday thats expected to be aimed at Gingrich. That would bring to roughly $3 million the amount spent by the group against Gingrich. Associated Press Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich speaks Monday during a campaign stop at Global Security Services in Davenport, Iowa.

The win improves Lecanto to 10-3-2 while Lake Weir fell to 2-83. Perry, a senior, nailed a penalty kick from 20 yards out 20 minutes into the contest. At 35:21 in the second half, Perry took an excellent cross from Chloe Benoist and scored her second of the night. Chloe crossed in and I popped it right in, finishing it off, Perry said. Oh my God, there was a lot of tension out there. They (Lake Weir) were an aggressive team. It was kind of a weird game. Jordan Martin scored the first goal at 22:34. She took a pass from twin sister, Breanna, and tapped it in from five yards out. Taylor Christian scored the fourth goal at 10:31 in the second half. She scored on a breakaway from 12 yards out. Benoist finished off the scoring, blasting one in from 18 yards out with less than two minutes left in the contest. Lecanto dominated from start to finish. They had 18 shots on goal in the first half and 22 in the second half. Lake Weir had just one shot on goal in the second half. The game was a physical one and the last match of 2011 for the Panthers. It wasnt one the coach was really proud of. Im glad we got the W, Lecanto coach Roselle Lattin said. Im glad the girls kept their composure. We could have played better. We need to clean up things. Lake Weir was an aggressive team. We figured out what we needed to do. We had a few opportunities and a PK we didnt convert. We know that we could have played better. We know that there are a couple of shots that we could have taken advantage of. Lecanto will play at Citrus on Jan. 4.

The Lecanto High senior essentially locked up the title of the Citrus Chronicle Male Swimmer of the Year for 2011 with that feat, although he was the odds-on favorite for the title even before the season began. Tamposi was the only male swimmer at the state meet, which was his third trip in four years. Tamposi saved his best for last. He swam a personal best, finishing fourth in the 100 breaststroke at the state meet. His time was 59:18. He also had a personal best when he finished ninth in the 200 Freestyle with a time of 1:43.9. Jake took second place in the 200 Breaststroke at the regional. He had a time of 1:00.17. Tamposi was fourth in the region with a time of 1:46.08 in the 200 Freestyle. The Panther was happy to accept the Chronicle honor. I feel very honored and proud of what I have accomplished and proud to have an impact on local swimming, said Tamposi. He said he is going to swim at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts. It is a NCAA Division III school, which does not give out scholarships. The Lecanto coach was always impressed with his ace swimmer. Every time he got in the water, said coach Matt Bouthillier that day, it was his best time ever. From the time he got into the water, he was ready. Jake holds more records than any male Lecanto swimmer in history. It was beautiful the way that he ended the season. At the banquet, he gave a moving speech. He suggested that anyone can use hard work and dedication can allow people to achieve success.

Masters field forms, some left wondering List already over 90 Associated PressJACKSONVILLE Ernie Els and Retief Goosen enter the 2012 season without any assurances of playing in the Masters. The field for the Masters took shape Monday after the final official week of golf tournaments around the world. Among the criteria for an invitation is to be among the top 50 in the world ranking at the end of the season. Els, a three-time major champion who has suffered plenty of heartaches at Augusta National, fell to No. 56 in the final ranking. Els has been eligible for the Masters every year since his debut in 1994. Goosen, a two-time U.S. Open champion, is at No. 53. Jim Furyk narrowly claimed a spot in the Masters, to be played April 5-8, when he finished at No. 50. Furyk began the year at No. 5 in the world. Others who got into the Masters through the world ranking were Ian Poulter, Paul Casey, Alvaro Quiros, K.T. Kim, Simon Dyson, Sang-moon Bae, Rickie Fowler, Francesco Molinari, Miguel Angel Jimenez and Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano. Els and Goosen still can get in by winning a PGA Tour event before the Masters (except those tournaments held opposite World Golf Championships), or by getting into the top 50 in the world ranking published the week before the Masters.

Power outages on two separate occasions delayed the game over 40 minutes. At press time, the 49ers led the Steelers 13-3 in the third quarter. Clash of the 10-win teams Saban, Tide back to practice UF swamps foe Gators saddle MVSU with 82-54 loss Associated PressGAINESVILLE The toughest part of Mississippi Valley States schedule is over. The Southwestern Athletic Conference will seem easy by comparison. Cor-J Cox scored 16 points, Terrence Joyner added 14 and Mississippi Valley State ended one of the toughest non-conference slates in the country with an 82-54 loss at No. 11 Florida on Monday night. All I ask my kids to do is fight and continue to get better because its almost a nowin situation, MVSU coach Sean Woods said. The No. 1 team in the country couldnt handle this schedule and go out unscathed. We know what we are in for and we just have to keep battling and stay together because our main focus is winning the conference championship. The Delta Devils (1-9) played 10 games away from home, including eight against teams from power conferences. They lost by double digits to Notre Dame, DePaul, North Carolina, Arkansas, Northwestern and Mississippi. So a lopsided affair at Florida (9-2) was somewhat expected. MVSU earned $75,000 for playing in Gainesville, money that helps sustain the program. Theyve got to do it to keep their program afloat, financially, facilities, scholarships, all those things, said Florida coach Billy Donovan, who was a graduate assistant at Kentucky when Woods played there. Hes put into a situation that he has to do that. I think what happens sometimes is your players can get beaten down, where its on the road every single day against a BCS-type program. ... Theyve played everybody, but they have to do that. Seans trying to make the best of it. When youre playing a schedule like that, its very, very easy for your team to come in with a defeated attitude and a defeated mentality. The Delta Devils were out of this one early. Florida made its first eight shots, opened up a 20point lead midway through the first half and did anything it wanted. Erving Walker finished with 19 points and was one of five starters in double figures. Kenny Boynton (16), Bradley Beal (13), Patric Young (12) and Erik Murphy (11) also scored in double digits for the Gators (9-2), who extended their home winning streak to 11. The game provided a bit of a break for Florida, which was coming off a big win over Texas A&M two nights earlier and is getting ready for in-state rival Florida State in three days. Nonetheless, Donovan used last years home loss to Jacksonville a Monday game that came on a short turnaround as motivation. Were in the same exact situation, Donovan said. Is history going to repeat itself or are you guys going to change that? I said, The beauty of it is this game hasnt been played and you have control of how we come out and play. And I give those guys credit. They got themselves ready to play and I thought we came out with really good energy to start the game. No. 5 UNC 99, Nicholls State 49 CHAPEL HILL, N.C. Dexter Strickland scored 14 points to help No. 5 North Carolina beat Nicholls State 99-49 on Monday night. Freshman James Michael McAdoo added a season-high 14 off the bench for the Tar Heels (10-2), who dominated the undersized and overmatched Colonels for their fourth straight victory. North Carolina had a miserable shooting start and missed a bunch of free throws, but the Tar Heels snatched away every loose rebound to get plenty of extra looks. They finished with a 72-35 advantage, including 31 on the offensive glass that led to 36 second-chance points. No. 7 Duke 90, UNC Greensboro 63DURHAM, N.C. Freshman Quinn Cook scored all of his season-high 14 points in the second half as Duke routed UNC Greensboro. Mason Plumlee had 15 points and 13 rebounds and Austin Rivers added 14 points for the Blue Devils (10-1). They shot 54 percent from the field, shook off a sluggish start and overcame 18 turnovers to win their third straight since the onesided loss at No. 2 Ohio State. Kyle Randall scored 12 points but the Spartans (2-10) shot just 34.5 percent in the second half in losing their seventh straight. The last two have come under interim coach Wes Miller, a former North Carolina guard who took over last week. No. 17 Indiana 107, Howard 50BLOOMINGTON, Ind.

The Hoosiers (11-0) shot 67.3 percent from the field, hit 11 3-pointers and forced 19 turnovers. Indiana fell eight points short of the school record for largest victory margin. The Hoosiers are 11-0 for the first time since the 1975-76 squad went 32-0 and became the last Division I mens team to complete an undefeated season.

Dawson had eight quick points and finished 8 for 12 from the field for the Spartans (10-2), who have won 10 straight. Brandon Wood also had 16 points, including 3-for-3 shooting from 3-point range, as Michigan State grabbed a 16-2 lead and never led by fewer than 10 points again. Draymond Green added 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Spartans, his sixth double-double this season, while Adreian Payne had 11 points.

Kemba Walker opened his NBA career with a solid performance, shaking off a slow start to score a game-high 18 points including the goahead layup to lift the Bobcats to a 79-77 win over the Hawks in the preseason opener for both teams. After missing eight of his first 10 shots, including a dunk on a fastbreak, Walker made a 17-footer and a driving layup over two defenders in the closing 90 seconds. He used his quickness to draw fouls in the lane and shot 9 for 11 from the line. Josh Smith and Al Horford each scored 11 points to lead the Hawks. The Bobcats got a strong effort from Boris Diaw, making his first start at center since the departure of Kwame Brown. Playing well away from the basket, Diaw shot 5 for 8 from the field and finished with 12 points. Nuggets agree to 5year deal with AfflaloDENVER The Denver Nuggets have agreed to a five-year deal with restricted free agent Arron Afflalo. The Denver Post first reported Monday night the guard had agreed to a contract that could be worth up to $43 million. Nuggets coach George Karl was preaching the importance of bringing back Afflalo, the player he considered the glue guy of the team. Afflalo averaged 12.6 points last season and took on a bigger leadership role once Denver dealt Carmelo Anthony to the New York Knicks last February. The team went 18-7 the rest of the way to make the playoffs.

Alabama eyes title game vs. SEC foe LSU Associated PressTUSCALOOSA, Ala. Nick Saban is a busy, busy man. No. 2 Alabamas coach celebrated his anniversary Sunday and has the birthdays of his wife and two kids all in December, not to mention Christmas. Lets see. What else? Oh yeah, he has to find an offensive coordinator and prepare for the Jan. 9 BCS championship game with No. 1 LSU in the Louisiana Superdome. Saban and the Crimson Tide returned to the practice field indoors, of course Monday. Its all coming up at once, he said. Monday was also the first chance for departing offensive coordinator Jim McElwain to meet with the team since taking the head coaching job at Colorado State last week. Hell be with the Tide (11-1) through the title game. We love Coach McElwain and were really sad to see him go, left tackle Barrett Jones said. We had kind of a moment with him. We clapped for him. Were going to really miss him. Saban said McElwains double duty wont affect preparation and that he did the same thing for several regular season games and two playoff outings when he was the Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator and took over at Michigan State. Hes done a great job here for us, in a lot of different ways, Saban said. I think the players are very happy for him. I think hes the kind of guy that has a lot of pride in what he does and I dont think theres going to be any issues or problems in his commitment to what were doing for our team and this game. As for finding a replacement, Saban said theres no process yet. We do our due diligence and research, but our focus is on this game right now, he said. Well kind of do that a little bit at a time. I dont think theres any hurry. I definitely feel like we want to get the best possible guy, and that takes time. I dont think you can recruit, get ready for a game, practice for a game and try to be interviewing people at the same time. Somethings going to get sort of left out. The Tide will practice in Tuscaloosa through Friday and then break for Christmas until midweek. Saban said all the players who were nursing injuries late in the season including safety Mark Barron are healthy and practicing after a three-week layoff. Saban said its a return to fundamentals similar to the first day of preseason camp. Since theyre preparing for a game indoors, they dont have to brave the wind and chilly weather.

Chargers pound road-weary Ravens, 34-14 Associated PressSAN DIEGO It took the San Diego Chargers until their 14th game to beat a team that brought a winning record into the contest. That team Sunday night was no less than the playoff-bound Baltimore Ravens, who floundered on offense, didnt look at all tough on defense and were beaten 34-14. Philip Rivers threw for one score and reached the 4,000-yard mark for the fourth straight season, Ryan Mathews ran for two scores and hit 1,000 yards rushing, and the Chargers won their third straight game to keep their playoff hopes alive. The one thing that stays true in all the scenarios is, we have to win our next two games, Rivers said. Lets just worry about us. If its not enough on Jan. 1, its not enough. But were going to go down fighting. The Chargers (7-7) are tied with Oakland for second in the AFC West, a game behind Denver with two to play. Denver and Oakland both lost Sunday. The Chargers finish with road games against Detroit and the Raiders. The Ravens (10-4) had their fourgame winning streak snapped, but clinched a playoff berth earlier in the day thanks to losses by the New York Jets, Oakland and Tennessee. Its a reality check, said Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs, who was anything but the disruptive force that he has been in accumulating a career-high 13 sacks this season. You dont show up to play in a game like this, youre going to get your (butt) whupped. Championship teams get on the road and keep playing they peak they dont take a step back. Even though Ray Lewis was back with the Ravens after a four-game injury layoff, Baltimore only had two punishing hits on Rivers. Rivers was dominating, completing 17 of 23 passes for 270 yards to lead the Chargers to scores on six of their first seven possessions. He didnt throw an interception, and the only sack the Ravens got was wiped out on a personal foul against Suggs. It was good to win a big game like this at home against a good team, Rivers said. It was a rough six-game stretch, but we hung tight together and fought our way back to .500 with two to play and were still alive. swimming for Tufts College.

The Masters has the smallest field of the four majors, and the club prefers that no more than 100 players tee it up. A year ago, the field going into the new season also was at 91 players, and there were 99 players in the final field.

Meyer expects high hopes OSU coach wants to lead Buckeyes to top Associated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio Urban Meyer came into the Ohio State job with his eyes wide open about what Buckeyes fans demand from their new coach. Win it all, he said of the expectations. Hes done that twice, capturing two national championships at Florida before coming to Ohio State on Nov. 28 to take over a bedraggled program hit by suspensions, NCAA investigations and major violations that could lead to severe penalties. Speaking to reporters on Monday, he said hes not nave about the size and scope of the program he now leads. This is a monster. Ohio State is a monster. I just came from a monster, he said. I get that. Whats the expectation level? Its real clear. It was the same at the other place. Theres about five of them (schools) that thats what the expectations are. But as a coach you have to keep it in centerfield. You cant worry about left field or right field. Meyer twice resigned at Florida due to health reasons, returning almost immediately after the first announcement and then sitting out a year before taking the Ohio State job. He said he has learned that he must not micromanage every aspect of the football program. He knows there will come times when the stress and the pressure will mount. Its when you hit the speed bumps, he said. Obviously, we havent hit any speed bumps yet. The speed bumps are losses or other things that show up in your program that youre not real proud of. Thats going to happen. How I handle those situations is going to be key. Im in a much better place now. And it hasnt happen yet. Since his hiring, Meyer has spent most of his time recruiting. He has obtained a couple of verbal commitments from acclaimed players who were afraid of impending NCAA sanctions that Ohio State could receive any day now. The school has already vacated the 2010 season, repaid its share of Big Ten bowl money from last year, offered to go on NCAA probation and to give up five scholarships over the next three seasons. Most of the headlines emanating from Columbus revolved around other losses. Successful head coach Jim Tressel admitted in March that for months he was aware that some of his players had most likely taken cash and tattoos from the subject of a federal drug probe. Yet he didnt tell his superiors or the NCAA, and played the players anyway. After weeks of pressure, he was forced to resign on May 30. Star quarterback Terrelle Pryor, one of several players suspended for their role in the tattoo-related violations, jumped to the NFL. Meyer said he has received no assurances about additional penalties for the football program. He does know that hes willing to forgive what happened. I trust that what happened here was a series of legitimate mistakes, he said. I dont want to get into it now, but they were mistakes. Were they willful, intentful, violations? I dont believe that. I know the people who were here. I know them very well. I know what this place stands for. Ill fight that, even though I wasnt here. Luke Fickell took over on an interim basis and coached the Buckeyes to a 6-6 record. In an odd coincidence, Meyers new employer plays his old employer in the Gator Bowl on Jan. 2. He said he hasnt been keeping a close eye on the Buckeyes in bowl practice and may not even watch the game against Florida because of how he feels about both schools. Fickell, who has interviewed for the vacant Pittsburgh job, has been offered a spot on Meyers defensive staff. So has another holdover, cornerbacks coach Taver Johnson. Stan Drayton, who coached wide receivers last season, will shift to running backs in 2012. Meyer hired Iowa State assistant Tom Herman as his quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator. He said hes still deciding on other spots on the staff.

Paul McCartney has new album NEW YORK Paul McCartney is releasing an album of standards plus two new songs of his own. The former Beatle announced Monday his new disc will be out Feb. 7. It doesnt have a title yet. Hes already streaming one song, My Valentine, on his website. McCartney says he and John Lennon were inspired in their own writing by some of the standards. Some of them he first heard when his father performed them at home on piano. Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder make appearances on the disc, which was recorded with Diana Krall and her band. Singer wants to gain more weight NEW YORK Most New Year resolutions include dieting. Not for Jessie J The British singer says her goal for 2012 is to gain more weight. Jessie J says shes been working hard this year and its important to know when you need to gain weight, or when you need to lose weight and be healthy. The 23-year-old is known for her slim figure and skin-tight outfits. She released her debut CD Who We Are earlier this year. Its double platinum in the United Kingdom, where she has four Top 10 hits, including the No. 1 tune Price Tag. That song has reached the Top 40 in America. The singer also plans to shave her head for charity.Judge OKs sale of hot dog diner TOLEDO, Ohio An Ohio hot dog eatery made famous on TVs M.A.S.H. is getting a new owner. A judge has signed off on a deal transferring ownership of Tony Packos Inc. to a private restaurant group in Toledo. The decision announced Monday comes days after the founders grandson was charged with stealing from the family business, where hes poised to play a major role in the new ownership. An attorney for the new owners says the accusations wont affect their plan. Actor Jamie Farr made Packos famous in the 1970s when he portrayed a homesick U.S. soldier in the Korean War who longed for their hot dogs. Associated PressSALT LAKE CITY Reality TV stars Kody Brown and his four wives say they just want one thing: to be left alone. As authorities investigate them for bigamy, the TLC Sister Wives family is asking a federal judge to overturn part of Utahs bigamy law because it bans them from living together and criminalizes sexual relationships between unmarried consenting adults. What they are asking for is the right to structure their own lives, their own family, according to their faith and their beliefs, said Jonathan Turley, their attorney, adding the lawsuit is about privacy not polygamy. The case in federal court in Utah, however, could open up the possibility that a way of life for tens of thousands of self-described Mormon fundamentalists could be decriminalized. While all states outlaw bigamy, some like Utah have laws that both prohibit having more than one marriage license at a time and ban adults from living together and having a sexual relationship. The latter provision could include same-sex couples, unmarried heterosexual couples and those, like the Browns, who do not have licenses but have created within their homes a marriage-like relationship. Turley, a noted constitutional expert, argued, under previous U.S. Supreme Court rulings, such as one that struck down Texas sodomy law, private intimate relationships between consenting adults are constitutionally protected. The lawsuit doesnt aim to challenge Utahs right to refuse to recognize plural marriage, nor are the Browns seeking multiple marriage licenses, Turley said. The display of the Brown familys polygamous lifestyle on cable television drew the interest of Utah prosecutors. The Browns are members of the Apostolic United Bretheran and practice polygamy as part of their religious beliefs. Polygamy is the religious or cultural practice of a person having more than one spouse, which is defined as bigamy under law. Experts say it is a widely practiced, crosscultural family structure found on every continent and in every major religion. The family Kody, Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn, plus 17 children fled Utah for the Las Vegas suburbs in January after authorities launched a bigamy investigation. No charges have been filed. Utah state attorneys say a bigamy prosecution isnt likely and the lawsuit should be dismissed. And while authorities continue their investigation, prosecutors say, the probe isnt limited to bigamy. They have not provided anymore details. Last week, U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups heard arguments over whether the Browns have standing to continue the case, a decision based in part on whether the family has been harmed by the Utah law. Waddoups will decide later whether to dismiss it altogether or set a trial date. Utahs statehood was granted in the 1890s under the condition that plural marriage which was thenopenly practiced by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints would be banned in the state constitution. In the U.S., bigamy has been illegal under federal law since the 1860s. Sister Wives family challenging Utah law Birthday : In the next year, refrain from limiting your hopes and expectations. If youre prepared to work hard and do what needs to be done, your resolve and commitment will be enough to make it happen. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Just because youre at a boisterous event doesnt mean you cant command the type of attention that youd like to receive. Youll find that whispering will have more impact than shouting. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If there is someone you know who could use a little help, you should yield to your charitable inclinations and pitch in. Your good deed will produce a huge and unexpected harvest. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Trust your instincts regarding the outcome of events, because theyre likely to be more accurate than your common sense. This time, things could be as good as you hope. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Speak up if you have something to say when a self-appointed person is fouling up the works. Youre the one wholl know how to handle it without making that individual look bad. Aries (March 21-April 19) Discovering others are talking about you is no cause for alarm, because what they are saying would actually flatter you. Dont jump to conclusions and be forced to make an apology later. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Dont hesitate to let it be known that you must study any proposal brought to you, especially if a contract is involved. Take all the time you need to read in between the lines. Gemini (May 21-June 20) There are some very strong indications that someone new could enter your life, if not today, then very soon. Itll be a person youll like very much and be thrilled to know. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Getting involved in something creative in which youll be using your hands as well as your mind will bring you much gratification. Dont hesitate to take on something new and different. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Dont be bashful about complimenting someone whom youve just met in front of others, and do let this person know how much you enjoy his or her company. She or he will be flattered. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Put your artistic talents to work during your spare time and beautify your surroundings instead of sitting around on the couch. The results will make you feel great. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Dont turn down any invitation that gives you a chance to mix and meet with new, fun people. The more contacts you make, the more chances youll have of meeting a truly nice friend. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Although they may come in increments, youll have excellent chances for producing long-range benefits for yourself and others, starting now.

Spotlight on PEOPLE Florida LOTTERIES SO YOU KNOW Last nights winning numbers, Page B3 E NTERTAINMENT Page B4 TUESDAY, DECEMBER 20, 2011 Associated PressNEW YORK You might say that Lady Gagas year really began in an egg. Thats how she arrived at the Grammys in February, encased in a large, translucent pod carried by scantily clad dancers. When she hatched onstage, she effectively gave birth to Born This Way, performing the eponymous lead single of her second studio album and anthem to self-acceptance. In 2011, the album would carry her around the world, where she rarely went unnoticed. After a year of extravagant globe-trotting and relentless advocacy of tolerance, Lady Gaga has been voted Entertainer of the Year by members of The Associated Press. There were 135 ballots submitted by U.S. news organizations that make up the APs membership. Editors and broadcasters were asked to cast their ballots for who had the most influence on entertainment and culture in 2011. I am humbled and honored to be named Entertainer of The Year by The Associated Press, Lady Gaga said in a statement Monday signed Mother Monster. My deepest gratitude to the broadcasters and journalists whove supported me over the years, and in turn, are now supporting the loves of my life: my fans. Thank you for believing in Born This Way. May you continue to brave the dreams of Showbiz. Lady Gaga narrowly edged out the late Apple founder Steve Jobs by three votes. Many others received numerous votes, including Taylor Swift, Charlie Sheen, Adele and the cast of Harry Potter. Previous winners of the AP Entertainer of the Year include Betty White, Swift, Tina Fey and Stephen Colbert. But it was Lady Gaga whose eminence in 2011 stood out most to voters. While accepting the best pop vocal album Grammy for her previous disc, The Fame Monster, earlier this year, she said stardom was an adjustment for her. When I wrote Born This Way, I imagined (Whitney Houston) was singing it because I wasnt secure enough in myself to imagine I was a superstar, she said. When the album was released in May, 1.1 million copies sold in the first week, partly aided by a dramatic discount from Amazon, which sold it for 99 cents. But it was an industry-shattering moment because an extraordinary 60 percent of sales in the first week were digital downloads.

C offee, the wakeup call for millions of Americans every day, may serve more than one purpose, especially for women. A recent study found that it may also help women lower their risk of endometrial cancer, cancer of the lining of the uterus. Women in a very large study who drank more than four cups of coffee a day had a 25 percent lower risk of uterine cancer. Dr. C. Joseph Bennett AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY Can coffee prevent uterine cancer? See BENNETT / Page C4 Dr. Sunil Gandhi CANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Iron out fatigue F atigue is a very common problem. There are many different reasons for fatigue. One of the most common reasons is iron deficiency or lack of iron. Iron is an essential component of making a protein called hemoglobin. This protein is inside red blood cells, which transport oxygen from the lungs throughout the body. So it makes sense that if hemoglobin is low, less oxygen is transported all over the body, and that would make one feel tired. Recent studies have shown many people who have normal hemoglobin also feel fatigued when their iron level is low. Now Swiss investigators have conducted a randomized, double-blind, See GANDHI / Page C4 I am sure we are all familiar with the concept of air pollution as it relates to the outside environment coal plants that produce CO2 and ash, factories that spew out smoke, car exhaust in major cities but Ill bet most of us dont think about the indoor environment in our homes as being a potential problem. This is particularly true in the colder months when windows are closed and the heat is turned on, as higher temperature and varying humidity levels can increase the concentration of pollutants found normally in the home. Common things found in the home include dust, tobacco products, building materials and furnishings that end up deteriorating and exposing us to asbestos, formaldehyde, and, living in Florida, of course, we always have the formidable molds potentially trapped in the house. Many of our homes are sprayed with chemicals for pests, and that includes treatments inside that can linger and Tis the season ... for indoor pollution A s you can imagine, I get the same questions asked many times over. I thought Id end the year with a few tidbits of information and some data related to my most frequently asked questions. I hope these snippets will answer some of your questions also. I begin with a fact: You cannot predict how successful treatment will be by the way a person arrives at the door. This relates to courtmandated clients, or those consumed with anger about being sent to treatment. Our office loves resistant clients in fact, sometimes theyre the ones most ready for their lives to change. We dont separate treatment for alcohol use from other drug use. All drugs of abuse act on the same area of the brain, the ventral tegmental area (VTA), and trigger the same electrochemical responses no matter what the outward signs of use are. Brain research finds the same reprogramming of specific neurological areas regardless of the type of substance. The most effective format for addiction treatment is a group setting. When we use drugs, we are isolated within ourselves. Moving into recovery, we must do the opposite of what feels normal or comfortable.

Board Certified, Fellowship Trained Associated Press Shoppers grab televisions on Nov. 25 at a store in Knoxville, Tenn., minutes after it opened. Plenty of Americans are having to hold back this year as the lure of flashy ads, tempting bargains and family expectations clashes with the realities of the economy. Experts in consumer behavior say that situation can strain the brain. Scientists say we are, to some extent, wired for shopping. It seems to tap in to circuits that spurred our ancestors to go out looking for food, says Brian Knutson, associate professor of psychology and neuroscience at Sta nford University. Associated Press NEW YORK C hennel King, a nurse from Norwalk, Conn., went Christmas shopping the other day with a new holiday companion: a budget. Despite a tough economic situation her husband was laid off almost a year ago King didnt want to disappoint her five children. So she still went to a mall in suburban New Jersey, but with a limit of $200 per child. Plenty of Americans are having to hold back this year as the lure of flashy ads, tempting bargains and family expectations clashes with the realities of the economy. Experts in consumer behavior say that situation can strain the brain. Scientists say we are, to some extent, wired for shopping. It seems to tap into circuits that spurred our ancestors to go out looking for food, said Brian Knutson, an associate professor of psychology and neuroscience at Stanford University. We are built to forage, just like rats, just like dogs, Knutson said. So we have brain circuitry that compels us to go out there ... to get good stuff, even if we dont know what that good stuff is. Brain scanning in his lab shows deep brain circuitry called the nucleus accumbens goes to work when people are considering products and prices. When brain cells in that area release a chemical called dopamine, people are motivated to take action, he said. So the very prospect of shopping maybe brought on by ads and other marketing tools may arouse that circuitry and put us in a mood to hit the stores, and then to keep on shopping, he said. You feel good ... Its exciting, Knutson said. Other circuitry reacts to excessively high prices and dampens the enthusiasm to buy, he said. The competing signals buy and dont-buy are passed to the front of the brain, in the prefrontal cortex, where a decision about whether to purchase something is apparently made, he said. But how does that decision get made when money is tight? Knutson said he hasnt studied that question. But he notes that yet another area of the brain, called the cingulate cortex, responds to conflicts like wanting to buy something that costs too much. So maybe it pitches in when a shopper feels restrained by a budget. King, the recent mall shopper, isnt sure how much she spent last year but it was a lot, with new bedroom sets, a camera for one daughter, a camcorder for one son, and four PlayStations. This year, she turned down the requests of her oldest two for an iPad. But On a tight budget? Better keep a close watch on your brain See BRAIN / Page C8

I was told that only a root canal could fix this. Of course root canals are extremely expensive. Why cant they just inject antibiotics into the root to fix this? There must be an alternative to an expensive procedure such as a root canal. I am experiencing slight pain when food touches the area. Please give me an alternative. A root canal will cost about $1,800 with insurance. A: This is a good question, one I get regularly in this column and at the office. In most cases arising in the body you are prescribed antibiotics for an infection and the infection is resolved. This happens because the antibiotics kill the bacteria and the bodys natural defense mechanisms get a chance to help things along. What you really have is an infection in the bone of the jaw. This infection is the result of bacteria invading the nerve or pulp of the tooth, which has a direct communication with the bone of the jaw. The source of the infection is usually from decay but can be from a traumatic injury to the tooth as well. In either case the nerve of the tooth begins to die, thereby infecting the bone. The only way to heal an infection like this is to remove the source of the infection. In this case, the source is the nerve or pulp. The procedure to do this is commonly known as a root canal. There are times that a root canal alone does not do the job, in which case the patient needs an apicoectomy. An apicoectomy is a surgical procedure that removes the infection from the bone and seals the tooth from the infected area. The only alternative to this is removal of the tooth. If there is no intention to replace the tooth, removal is the least expensive solution. If, on the other hand, the patient wants the tooth replaced, a root canal and restoration may be more cost-effective. The fee of $1,800 with insurance seems expensive for a root canal. The fee quoted to you may be for a root canal, post and crown. You might want to check on this because there are certain times that a root canal and filling, with or without a post, can be done. These alternatives may be less costly and still help you save the tooth. I hope this has helped. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a Homosassa dentist. Send your questions to 4805 S.

A: Primarily because these over-the-counter products are unproven to help with weight loss and are potentially dangerous. In view of this, on Dec. 6, 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued seven warning letters to companies marketing over-thecounter (OTC) HCG products labeled as homeopathic for weight loss. Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone produced by the human placenta and found in the urine of pregnant women. HCG is FDA-approved as an injectable prescription drug for the treatment of some cases of female infertility and other medical conditions. The letters warn the companies that they are violating federal law by selling drugs that have not been approved, and by making unsupported claims for the substances. There are no FDA-approved HCG drug products for weight loss. The joint action is the first step in keeping the unproven and potentially unsafe products from being marketed online and in retail outlets as oral drops, pellets and sprays. The labeling for homeopathic HCG products states each product should be taken in conjunction with a very low-calorie diet. There is no substantial evidence HCG increases weight loss beyond that resulting from the recommended caloric restriction. Consumers on a very low-calorie diet are at increased risk for side effects including gallstone formation, electrolyte imbalance and heart arrhythmias. According to the warning letters, the companies have 15 days to notify the FDA of the steps they have taken to correct the violations cited. Failure to do so may result in legal action, including seizure and injunction or criminal prosecution. Consumers and health care professionals are encouraged to report adverse events (side effects) that may be related to the use of these products to MedWatch, the FDAs voluntary reporting program, by calling 800-FDA-1088, or electronically at www.fda.gov/ medwatch/report.htm.

Were the first person and the last person we lie to and need an external source of accountability to keep us honest. Treatment programs use the powerful tool of group process as a primary way to accomplish individual treatment goals. Individual settings are considered if the client cant participate actively in a group due to language barriers, disability or another issue. The past standard was to work hard for the first 30 days of sobriety and then discharge the client into aftercare, believing the first month was the hardest and everything after that was supportive. Research now shows that it can take the brain 18 to 24 months to get to a pre-use state (two to three years for a meth user). In that time, the client struggles with a condition called PAWS (post-acute-withdrawal syndrome). Terry Gorski developed the theory and interventions based on these concepts. His work outlines strategies to traverse the minefield of PAWS symptoms. Clients struggle with imbalanced moods, lack of resilience and memory/ concentration deficits. Relapse is a constant shadow overlaying recovery for clients, and often loved ones dont understand the profound impairment a recovering addict can experience. The most lethal drug is, in fact, alcohol. Sedative withdrawal (the most common now are alcohol and benzodiazepines) causes more deaths by far than any other class of drugs. Recent national statistics reveal alcohol is present in almost 50 percent of car accidents, 40 percent of emergency-room visits and is a leading cause of job absenteeism. To bust a myth: There are withdrawal symptoms from marijuana. Coping mechanisms for stress are erased by the cloud of use. People in early weed recovery often experience growing agitation, anxious/panicky mood and outbursts from minimal provocation. Memory, concentration, problem-solving and decision-making abilities are greatly impacted with chronic use. Recovering smokers are often unable to identify likes and dislikes, personal assetsand strengths. The cloud not only erases motivation and bad vibes, it also erases ones sense of self. I know many people suffer during the holidays, and I hold in prayer everyone who reads my column. For each of you who is struggling, I send thoughts of compassion and peace. I wish you all a safe, sane and sober holiday!

For those of you who follow my weekly articles, you realize a study with more than 67,000 participants is indeed a large one. And to make this study even more impressive, the researchers have followed the members of this study for 26 years. Within this group, researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health found 672 cases of uterine cancer. When they questioned the members of the study regarding coffee intake, they found that women who drank four cups of coffee or more every day had a 25 percent lower risk of developing uterine cancer compared to those who drank less than one cup of coffee a day. Now, this is valuable information, but why does coffee seem to lower the risk of uterine cancer? Coffee may lower risk by affecting the way the female hormone estrogen and the hormone insulin work in the body. We have known for decades that hormones play a role in many different cancers, and that hormone balance plays a part in the development of most uterine cancers. Women who are obese have a much higher risk of developing uterine cancer secondary to the fact that having more fat tissue also affects hormones. This excessive fat can increase a womans estrogen levels, which increases her uterine cancer risk. In comparison with women who maintain a healthy weight, endometrial cancer is twice as common in overweight women, and more than three times as common in obese women. In this well-run and -documented study, obese women were even more likely than average-weight women to benefit from drinking a lot of coffee, probably due to the fact that average-weight women have a lower production of estrogen. However, the study highlights a very important fact: Getting more exercise and maintaining a normal body weight are probably still the most important ways to lower your risk of uterine cancer. And unfortunately, if you want the benefit from coffee, you better drink it black. The addition of sugar and cream to coffee is likely to wipe out any benefit from drinking it because of the fat and calories associated with making it taste a little better. Unfortunately, it is not clear whether the caffeine or other substances found in coffee might be responsible for the study findings. The researchers did not find any lowered uterine cancer risk in those participants who regularly drank caffeinated tea. They also found no significant link with decaffeinated coffee, but, as one would expect, very few women in the study drank decaf, so the results were inconclusive due to the fact that too few respondents fell into this category. Now, should we all be drinking more coffee? Unfortunately, more studies are needed to pinpoint the true role of coffee in the risk factors for uterine cancer. If you like coffee, discuss this with your doctor, and if cleared, drink away, and hopefully your risk of uterine cancer will decrease.

This was done to determine the efficacy of administering intravenous (IV) iron to non-anemic patients with fatigue and low iron levels as measured by a blood test called ferritin. In such a trial, patients are given either placebo or the iron and neither the patient nor the doctor knows who is getting what. Researchers keep it secret and it is only decoded after the study is complete. A total of 90 postmenopausal women meeting these criteria received either four 200-milligram infusions of iron sucrose or placebo during a two-week period. Such iron infusions are commonly given in our office as an outpatient procedure, but we usually give it only to patients with anemia. The patients who received iron had significantly more improvement in fatigue compared to those who received placebo. The study was published in the journal Blood in September 2011. In this issue of the journal, Dr. Krayenbhl, et al, provide strong evidence that women complaining of fatigue who were not anemic but who had reduced or absent iron stores were symptomatically improved after receiving parenteral iron. Given the number of women who are iron-deficient, the findings could find broad application, but work needs to be done to refine the approach to this common problem. We need to know whether oral iron would do the same job or not. In my practice, I have found intravenous iron many times works faster and better than oral iron. Nausea, constipation or pain in the abdomen are common symptoms of iron pills, but not with iron taken intravenously. Iron is essential for various enzymes inside cells and nuclei, and those enzymes may be affected with low iron. This happens even with normal hemoglobin or lack of anemia. This is supposed to be the reason to feel tired or fatigued with low iron. In short, if you are feeling fatigued, consider asking your doctor to check your iron level. If iron is low, you should consider intravenous iron to reduce your fatigue. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Indoor pollution can be something experienced immediately or there can be delayed effects that show up years later. Simple things like irritation of the eyes, ears, nose and throat, headaches, dizziness, fatigue are usually the most common immediate side effects. Long-term effects usually manifest themselves in the lungs as asthma, bronchitis, chronic cough and other respiratory ailments. The severity of your response sometimes depends on age and pre-existing medical conditions can also be a factor, such as asthma or emphysema. It is important to pay attention to how your symptoms start, whether they recur and how severe they are, as you may find that there is a particular connection with a certain environment such as the home, workplace or places where you gather and socialize and spend a significant amount of time. There are some simple things you can do that will help greatly and could ensure you dont have any longlasting problems from indoor pollution, the first of which is controlling pollution. In other words, what is the source? Is it too high a heat, too dry, too humid? Is there smoking going on in the house? Are there lots of chemical sprays used as cleaners, pesticides, etc.? Controlling the actual source can be greatly beneficial. Secondly, ventilation is very important. Opening up the house periodically to outside fresh air is very helpful. Most of our heating and cooling systems are closed and do not allow for fresh air to be incorporated into the system. Most homes are fitted with bathroom and/or kitchen fans that exhaust odors and contaminants. During the especially colder months and high fuel charges, people are starting to seek alternative methods, including small kerosene heaters used in the home or wood-burning stoves. Those are potential problems. Also in the colder months, we tend to do things indoors more so than outdoors, and this includes hobby activities which might produce a problem such as soldering, welding, building models and using glues that have fumes or sanding wood projects, to name a few. You are better off bundling up a little bit more and working outside if possible. There are inexpensive and expensive examples of air cleaning that can be applied to the heating and cooling system of your home. Doing something is better than nothing. However, air cleaners are not going to remove fumes, but they are effective against general household entities such as dust, dust mites, molds. Any effort that you do will be rewarded.

The program spanned the classic favorites from Cole Porter, Leonard Bernstein, Rogers and Hammerstein to the Righteous Brothers Unchained Melody. The enrichment program is a gift to the community in its fifth year of presentations, cosponsored by the Citrus County Chronicle Other season programs have included One Nation Under God, featuring Harry S. Coverston, Ph.D., J.D., funded by the Florida Humanities Council, the Marion Civic Chorales Lords and Dukes Concert, and The Joy of Christmas, featuring Bill Kinley, organist, and Stacey Adams, soloist. A fitting opening, Thats Entertainment (1952), from The Band Wagon, set the mood for a festive afternoon. From West Side Story (1957), Sue Kopler sang Somethings Coming and Lowell Smith brought us One Hand, One Heart. Karen returned with Somewhere, and Tonight was performed by Mary Mahoney. Cole Porter selections from the 1950 production of Out of This World, the 1956 hit High Society and 1953s Can-Can included From This Moment On, a duet with Kopler and Smith. They encored with True Love, followed by Mary Mahoneys spirited rendition of Its All Right With Me. The Dunnellon Singers are an allvolunteer group of church music directors and choir members who love to perform classical music. It was a nostalgic trip down memory lane as Kopler performed a flawless Till There Was You, with unhurried phrasing from the 1950 production of The Music Man, followed by a spirited Ethel Merman-style version of Just in Time from the 1956 Bells Are Ringing. Admitting the groups difficulty in deciding which of the array of s songs to include, the group continued with the 1950s Kismet hit and This is My Beloved. The depth of this presentation was poetry in motion with Lowell Smith. Mary Mahoneys Ive Never Been In Love Before, from the 1950 Guys and Dolls Broadway production, was a song seemingly made just for Mary Mahoneys voice. Lowells emotionally charged rendition of I Talk to the Trees, from 1951s Paint Your Wagon, kept us in awe of the range of the talented performers. The groups antics brought giggles from the delighted audience as the group of singers brought down the house with the Chordettes 1958 Lollipop with one singers huge lollipop and anothers popping sound effect. It was a chance for the group to perform a delightful round. It was such a joy to be able to understand all of the lyrics and to enjoy the music at a sound level that was comfortable to our ears. The group performs four times each year and an additional four presentations are in the planning stages. Following a freewill offering, the second act began with a duet of Sincerely, a Maguire Sisters 1954 hit, performed by Mahoney and Kopler, and All I Have to do is Dream by Kopler and Smith, a 1958 hit for the Everly Brothers. We pictured Charlie Chaplin overcoming challenges and troubling circumstances with the Smith rendition of Chaplins Smile. A perky Kopler brought us Connie Francis Lipstick on Your Collar, a 1959 hit. In torch-singer flair, Mahoney sang Johnny Mathis Chances Are (1957), then Lowell brought us Misty, an Erroll Garner 1954 hit. Thunderous applause accompanied Koplers Unchained Melody (1955) as memories continued to flow throughout the show. Lingering in the s scattered our cares away as the groups final Rogers and Hammerstein set concluded the concert with Lowells Ive Grown Accustomed to Her Face from My Fair Lady (1956), I Enjoy Being a Girl (1958), from Flower Drum Song, by Kopler, King and I (1951) selections with Lowells voice that was created for love songs as he sang I Have Dreamed, Karens Something Wonderful, and Mahoneys Hello Young Lovers. Culminating an astounding s program of memorable songs with The Sound of Music (1959), Climb Every Mountain, gave us pause in the full acknowledgement of the hope of peace and goodwill throughout our world. It was exemplified that special afternoon with the dedication that the Dunnellon Singers have to enhance the art of musical performance for the community. Heartfelt thanks to the Dunnellon Singers, Shepherd of the Hills Episcopal Church, the Florida Humanities Council and the sponsorship of the Citrus County Chronicle, and Harry Hersheys piano artistry accompaniment.

Bridge students can be like that. They look for the trap in a prepared deal, trying to work out what they believe they should be doing, rather than what they would do away from the classroom. When a student does what he thinks the teacher wants him to do, often he will go down in a contract he normally would have made. But occasionally the deal will contain a trap like this one. How should South play in three no-trump after West leads the heart six? When you hold 4-4 in the minors and minimum count, your better opening bid is one diamond. South passed on the second round to tell partner he held a weak hand without spade support. Then North had a close decision. He might have shut his eyes and blasted into three no-trump. However, being a scientist by nature, he doubled, saying that he had too many points to pass but no clearcut bid available. South, with a heart stopper, suggested notrump. North was happy with that. Declarer starts with six top tricks (four spades and two hearts) and can establish three winners in clubs. Whats the problem? The spades are blocked. After playing off the queen and jack, South must be able to reach the dummy. And the only dummy entry is the heart ace. So declarer must take the first trick in his hand with the king. He cashes his two spade honors, then drives out the club ace and claims.

My wife loves sex. However, she will never initiate it or act seductively. If I dont initiate sex, it doesnt happen. We can go for weeks without it. Yet when we are intimate, she adores it. She frequently says, This is so great. I love sex. In addition, my wife never does anything that might provoke arousal, including kissing. No goodnight kiss, no kiss of greeting when weve been apart, no spooning in bed before falling asleep. Its like were roommates. Im not some unappreciative husband of an overworked wife. I do all the laundry, dishes, housecleaning, yard work, and home and car maintenance. I pay all the bills. We have identical jobs and work hours. Im in excellent shape, and she claims our sex is amazing. Many times, Ive explained that Im hurt that she doesnt find me sexually appealing. Weve argued about this for 30 years, and she always promises to change, but it never happens. Weve tried all kinds of marital aids and videos, but nothing helps. Every night, she watches TV, crawls into bed and goes to sleep. Am I wrong to think that a mutually rewarding, romantic, physical relationship needs to be more of a partnership? Is it wrong that I need to believe she is sexually attracted to me? Unhappy Husband Dear Unhappy: There could be different reasons for your wifes behavior. She may have some deepseated hang-ups about women behaving seductively or initiating sex. She may not be all that interested, but enjoys it once you get started. Or she may be putting on an Academy Award performance for your benefit. After 30 years, we are going to assume your wife is in menopause and whatever chance you may have had to interest her has diminished substantially. This has nothing to do with finding you sexually attractive. Her libido simply isnt up to it anymore. If she enjoys sex once you get started, please dont focus on who makes the first move. Dear Annie: I married Bob five years ago. He is 72, and I am 68. Bob is the most loving, kind and generous man I have ever met. The problem is that I love to dance. I could go dancing four nights a week. But Bob will only take me dancing on Saturday nights, and after two hours on the floor, hes out of gas and wants to go home. I could dance until midnight and then go out with friends for coffee. Id be happy to let him rest while I keep dancing, but my old dance partners wont ask me out on the floor now that Im married. I am so angry. What should I do? Jane in Ohio Dear Jane: Why are you so angry? You are married to a wonderful man who takes you dancing every week. It may not be as often as youd like, but its hardly deprivation. Would Bob mind if you went with friends instead? Would it bother him if you asked your old dance partners to squire you around? If those guys knew it was OK with your husband, they might be perfectly willing to step in so you could have a few more hours of fun while Bob takes a break. Find out. Dear Annie: This is for Adopted Child, who asked about contacting her biological family. If she doesnt get a quick response, its possibly because the family is going through some difficulties. Or maybe they need more time to digest being contacted by their biological sibling. If theres no response, I suggest the adoptee gently contact them again, perhaps in a year. Reaching out to ones biological family can be a positive, life-changing experience, but one should be prepared for all possible outcomes.

she didnt consider cutting out Christmas totally. And shes mindful to buy the same number of presents for each kid. You only live once, King said. If its something my kids really want, I try to get it at the lowest possible price. From what experts recommend about holding down spending, King was smart to set a budget ahead of time, but she probably made her task tougher by going to a mall. When youre surrounded by attractive goods and crowds of people buying them, natural human desires can trigger off intense cravings to buy, said George Loewenstein, a professor of economics and psychology at Carnegie Mellon University. Not spending when youre tempted to spend is exhausting and miserable, like not eating when youre hungry, he said. Trying to apply willpower should be your last resort, he said. Much better is to stay away from the mall in the first place, and it will be much easier to exert self-control. It might be preferable to shop on the Internet so youre not surrounded by buyers, although the convenience of online shopping holds its own temptations, he said. If you do go to a mall, commit yourself beforehand to a hard limit on spending, Loewenstein recommends. Generally, people tend to be a lot more tempted when there is some kind of uncertainty about whether youre going to get whatever it is youre tempted by, he said. A definite budget removes that uncertainty when a shopper spots something extra, and so its easier for the brain to say no, he said. But how to make that budget limit stick? The last thing you want to do is spend with a card, especially a credit card, or even a debit card, he said. It doesnt feel like spending. Much better to count out some cash and put it in an envelope. When the cash is gone, youre done shopping. Even before then, the act of forking out cash introduces the pain of paying, which can make a shopper more rational and less vulnerable to impulse purchases, he said. To Kathleen Vohs, an associate marketing professor at the University of Minnesota, Christmas shopping on tight money is a classic dilemma between Wants and Shoulds, between enjoying something now or holding back for a payoff later. If you dont give in now, your wallet will be fatter later, she said. Her tips for exerting self-control: Shop alone. Carry a list of things you want to buy, so you dont get drained psychologically by having to make a lot of choices in stores. And if youre trying to hold down spending, ease up on other demands for self-control like dieting. If youre trying to watch your waist and youre trying to watch your wallet ... its probably not a good recipe at being successful at both of those, she said. In fact, willpower to resist overspending can get depleted over hours of shopping as people face temptations, so that self-control and wise decision-making gradually break down, said psychologist Roy F. Baumeister of Florida State University. When it gets depleted, people will pay more money for the same products and buy more things on impulse that they dont really need, said Baumeister, co-author of the new book, Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength. Like Vohs, he recommends trying to limit the number of decisions or demands on self-control you face. And if thats not possible over the course of a shopping day, he said, try not to make expensive decisions at the end. But what do you do when youve decided to buy a $1,000 TV, but then you see another model for $1,500 that has more features? If you buy the less expensive one, wont you miss what you passed up for just $500 more? Thats the time to ask yourself, What else could I do with that $500? said Michael I. Norton of Harvard Business School. It really changes your mindset. If you think about using the money to vacation in Florida or invest in a college fund, that can help you avoid buying more expensive things, he said. One more tip to hold down Christmas spending comes from King, the mall shopper. Her gift list included her niece and goddaughter, but no grown-ups. The adults, she said, they have to wait till their birthdays.

Send Resume to Citrus Co. Chronicle Blind Box 1747 P 106 W. Main St. Inverness Fl 34450 BRAIN Continued from Page C1 Special to the ChronicleTALLAHASSEE Floridas Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program recently announced the release of its annual report, which showcases the programs accomplishments and recommendations for positive change in Floridas long-term care facilities. The Ombudsman Programs success thrives on its volunteers who selflessly donate time and energy to advocate for Floridas 160,000 plus long-term care facility residents. The programs volunteers are trained to investigate complaints and perform administrative assessments in assisted living facilities, nursing homes and adultfamily care homes. Ombudsmen volunteers traveled over 365,400 miles and saved the State of Florida over one million dollars this past federal fiscal year in salaries and administrative costs for long-term care residents through hours of unpaid service, said Elder Affairs Secretary Charles T. Corley. In addition to money saved and mileage traveled by its volunteers, the annual report also showcases the programs accomplishments, including participation in the Governors Assisted Living Workgroup to promote improvement of care for residents living in long-term care facilities, the creation of new training materials and a redesign of the administrative assessment and visitation form. The new visitation form truly complies with the spirit of the Older Americans Act, creating questions that will enable our volunteers to listen and advocate for concerns and needs expressed by residents, said state Ombudsman Jim Crochet. The new training materials encourage self-study time for our volunteers, decreased classroom training and increased time spent in the field. We want to equip our volunteers with the best tools possible to become the most effective advocates for longterm care facility residents. With the release of this report, the program hopes to create dialogue between policymakers, long-term care facility residents, family members, caregivers and concerned citizens about recurring issues in the long-term care industry. For more information about the Ombudsman Program, to receive a free copy of this years Ombudsman Programs annual report or to learn more about becoming a volunteer ombudsman, call tollfree at 888-831-0404 or visit ombudsman.myflorida.com. All program services are free. Advocates recommend change in long-term care For more information about the Ombudsman Program, to receive a free copy of this years Ombudsman Programs annual report or to learn more about becoming a volunteer ombudsman, call toll-free at 888-831-0404 or visit ombudsman.myflorida.com

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 20, 2011 YOUR SOURCE FOR ALL THINGS AUTOMOTIVE INSIDE Advertiser Map..........................3 Ask the Doctor...........................3 Automotive Classifieds..............4 Chevy Colorado........................4 Classic Classics: 1979 Scout..............................3 Manufacturer photo: Building on the momentum of launching six all-new or completely redesigned vehicles for 2011, the Dodge bra nd is charging ahead in transmission technology. The 2012 Dodge Charger is now the first domestic sport sedan to feature an eight-speed automatic transmission delivering a best-in-cla ss 31 miles per gallon (mpg) highway. New for 2012 Dodge Charger Gets Eight-Speed Transmission T he name Charger has apt meaning for Dodge. This model leads the charge in the large car segment in many ways. For 2012, Dodge charges ahead with an eight-speed automatic transmission a first for the Chrysler Group automaker. The 2012 Charger sport sedan is the first domestic brand automobile to feature a state-of-the-art ZF eight-speed transmission. Eight gears are mostly found in premium-luxury import brands, but Dodge after launching an allnew version of the Charger in 2011 builds on its new-generation Charger momentum with transmission technology. Buyers of the 2012 model will also see some name changes to the Charger trims. Starting at $25,495, the Dodge Charger is available in SE, SXT, and R/T versions. Additionally, within the SXT and R/T trims there are boosted package levels call Plus, as well as Road & Track and Max for the R/T trim. The V-6 engine powers charger SE and SXT models. The R/T houses a powerful 370-horsepower, 5.7liter Hemi V-8 engine that is rated at 25 miles per gallon highway. Our tester was the Charger SXT Plus equipped with allwheel drive with a base price of $31,115. By the way, the standard configuration for the Charger is rearwheel-drive. Mated to the new eight-speed automatic, the 292-horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 engine has fuel economy ratings of 31 mpg highway and 19 mpg city. This is an improvement over the 2011s all-new Charger that was equipped with the fivespeed automatic, which had EPA returns of 18/27 mpg. We found shifting the new eight-speed gear selectors a little tricky. During our week behind the wheel there were many times we encountered wrong gear selection, as a result of a sensitive shifter that would fall into another gear. It was almost like operating a computer mouse you really had to be exact on hovering the point needle before clicking. New paddle shifters are standard on the SXT and SXT Plus Chargers that allow the driver to engage in a performance-oriented drive. Also for 2012 is an all-new fullcolor Electronic Vehicle Information Center in the instrumentation gauge that is brightly colorful in an eyepleasing manner. The AWD system on the Dodge Charger transitions from RWD to AWD with no driver intervention. The Charger has an active transfer case and front-axle disconnect system. When AWD is not required it is automatically disconnected from the front axle to help maximize fuel efficiency. Our tester, fitted with 19-inch all-season tires, featured this touringtuned AWD suspension and successfully the Dodge engineers get it right. Youd never know this nice-riding sedan was equipped with AWD. Its the addition of hydrobushings that enhance this world-class refinement. New for the 2012 Charger is a Blacktop Package that comes with a blacked out look, performancetuned suspension and a big infotainment system for what Dodge calls a sinister, street cred appearance. The Blacktop comes with Pitch Black paint on 20-inch wheels, the spilt crosshair grille. Even without a packaged sinister look, the Charger snarls with contained aggression with a fierce, muscular design. Dodge stays very current with the latest technology package offerings that keep drivers entertained and in touch. Uconnect Touch is upgraded for 2012 with the added features of hands-free texting with Bluetooth and Sirius XM Traffic. Uconnect Touch comes in 4.3and 8.4-inch touch screens. Standard safety devices include six airbags, reactive head restraints and electronic stability control. The Taurus is Fords smartest sedan, offering full-size sedan customers an unmatched array of comfort, convenience and driver-a ssistance technologies. Taurus offers a revised color palette for 2012. It adds Ginger Ale Metallic, an elegant new hue. Bringing enhanced rear visibility, Taurus now features standard integrated blind spot mirrors in the power-assisted sideview mirrors. The 2012 Taurus is powered by a 3.5-liter Duratec V6, providing 263 horsepower and 249 lb.-ft. of torque. Taurus continues to build on a legacy of safety, as the 2011 model earn ed the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick rating.Source: Ford Motor Co NEW ON WHEELS BY CONNIE KEANE, Motor Matters 2012 FORD TAURUS

It has had all the required scheduled maintenance and the fuel injectors have been cleaned. Ive been complaining for 18 months of low mileage (its worse now after my last oil change), a burning smell when I accelerate (like unburned gas), and a rotten egg odor when I drive on the highway not at lower speeds. I asked the dealer if it could be the catalytic converter or EGR valve. I was told no. I know Jeeps get low mileage but mine gets less than 9 miles a gallon. What should I do while the Jeep is still under warranty? Debbie Dear Debbie: Your Jeep at only 9 mpg is not even in the ballpark. You should be at 14-18 mpg. There are a few simple steps that need to be done. First you need to fill the tank, re-set the trip odometer and drive 150 miles, then go back to the same gas pump and fill the tank the same way. You need to divide the total miles driven into the gallons used. This will give you the actual miles per gallon. If the Jeep was only getting 9 mpg, then the check engine light should have illuminated and the oxygen sensors should have set a rich condition fault code. The rotten egg smell is not unusual emitting from the exhaust, as it is the catalytic converter cleaning the exhaust. Sometimes it will even smell worse when the temperature is hot and the vehicle has been driven on the highway. Dear Doctor: I bought my 2004 GMC Envoy new and have loved it. Did not have any out-of-the-ordinary problems until several weeks ago when the gauges did not work. I turned the ignition off-and-on several times and finally all came on. Then two weeks later the key fob failed. I called AAA and they thought it might be the battery. We bought a new battery that evening, as the current was four years old. Two days later, all the gauges stopped working. Whats going on? Mary Beth Dear Mary Beth: Batteries can last up to five years on average and should be checked after three years and then yearly for the next two years. Dash cluster failure on GM vehicles is a common failure and the cost average for repair is $350 for a rebuilt dash cluster. I work on a lot of vehicles six days a week and the GM line of these GMC SUVs has a good track record. However, your vehicle is sevenplus years and no matter what auto brand you own stuff goes wrong. Dear Doctor: I purchased a 1991 Nissan 300 ZX (non-turbo) a few months ago. The car has only 35,000 miles on it, runs great, however, it has only 222 horsepower, and although Im a conservative driver, I would like the feel of more power. I would like a noticeable difference in normal driving and moderate rpm (below 4,500) and am not interested in raising the rpm limit. Im considering buying a performance chip, a performance module, or having the ECU reprogrammed. Will any of these things work? Ralph Dear Ralph: Unfortunately, you are starting with a low horsepower engine. If you did want to spend a few bucks, then I would replace the exhaust and install a high-flow catalytic converter and fresh air intake. The computer reprogramming is also a good idea and will increase power at all RPM levels. These upgrades are all that I would advise to do.

Send us your automotive and auto club events information to wheels@chronicleonline.com THE FAST LANE Top 5 Minivans Earned 2011 TOP SFETY PIC 1979 Scout was Treasured C arolyn Spencer and her now deceased husband always enjoyed a life together of activities in the great outdoors. Its the reason that almost 35 years ago they began shopping for a versatile vehicle that could pull a boat, make off-roading adventures and it had to be something they could tow behind their motorhome. They found the vehicle of their dreams in an International Harvester Scout. The Spencers purchased a 1979 Scout with a sturdy 345-cubic-inch V8 engine under the hood. The Scout they chose for use primarily as a weekend cruiser was red with orange stripe decals. The vehicle had a removable white steel top Spencer says. On the top was the chrome-plated roof rack, which she says, makes it look cuter. The couple selected a Scout that was very well equipped with some features not usually associated with off-road vehicles including: undercoating, power brakes, 4-wheel drive, rear speakers, power steering, power windows, air conditioning, outrigger mirrors, 148horsepower V-8, automatic transmission and an AM/FM stereo 8-track radio. Spencer admits that the automatic transmission was for her benefit. Its built like a tank, she says. For additional ease, the Scout came equipped with a tilt steering wheel. She says that the Scout has, a short turning radius. The G78x15-inch white sidewall tires help dress up the appearance of the Scout in conjunction with the chrome wheels. Elsewhere on the Scout there is no shortage of chrome trim. Sliding windows in the white cap provide plenty of ventilation for any rear seat passengers. With the back seat folded down toward the front the rear cargo area becomes enormous. The front bucket seats and side panels are covered in a combination of rust-colored and black vinyl and cloth fabric. Between the bucket seats is the floor-mounted gearshift lever. A manual transmission, Spencer says, was never my thing. The super capable Scout weighs 3,686 pounds, and according to records Spencer kept, the vehicle they purchased in 1979 cost $10,833.23. In order to traverse a respectable amount of territory a 19.6gallon gasoline tank was standard equipment. For most of the last 32 years the Scout has spent much of the time in and around Dickinson, Texas, just south of Houston. That is an area where the roads are rarely treated in the winter with salt. Consequently, the Spencers Scout, even after all these years, is relatively rust-free. The odometer has only recently rolled over 122,000 miles. Back in 2001, when the Scout was only 22 years old, Spencers husband had the vehicle stripped and resprayed the same color paint combination as the original. When that task was completed he had twins to the original decals applied to the Scout. As it turned out, he did most of the driving in the Scout. Its a mans vehicle, Mrs. Spencer observes. Since the death of her husband last January she rarely drives the Scout, especially in the Houston metropolitan area where she says the traffic can be challenging. She is comfortable driving at less than 45 mph. Would you like your car to be considered for an upcoming article?E-mail us your jpeg image, plus brief details and phone number.

Punctuating this effort is the all-new Colorado midsize pickup. The all-new Colorado is the first global pickup from Chevrolet, said Mary Barra, GM senior vice president of global product development. It will have strong Chevrolet truck DNA in its awardwinning heritage. Having a clear identity of the brand, its easier to move that product around the world, said Ed Welburn, global vice president of design at General Motors, who has taken on the responsibility of the ultimate keeper of all our global brands. General Motors is launching the 2012 Colorado in October in Thailand, Barra said, which is the worlds largest market for midsize pickups. Four out of every 10 vehicles sold in Thailand is a midsize pickup. Following Thailand, GM will launch in 60-plus markets around the world, including the United States. Unfortunately, key information about the new-generation Colorado, built for the U.S. market, isnt available. Details such as timing, pricing and the production location will be announced in the coming months. Since GM reports the current-generation Colorado will be produced in Shreveport, La., through the 2012 model year, a good guess is the new Colorado will be a 2013 model. What is clear about the U.S.-bound pickup is its basic design. Barra said the Colorado poised on the stage during the press conference of Chevrolets 100th birthday is representative of the truck that will go on sale in the United States. In Thailand, the truck will be offered in standard and crew-cab versions. Its based on our allnew truck architecture developed in Brazil with the support of GMs global productdevelopment organization, she said. Its engineered to meet the local needs in major markets around the world. General Motors is tailoring the Colorado to specific markets. A GM team lived in Thailand and studied the market there during the pickups development. They immersed themselves in the highly competitive truck market and observed how the Thai people use their vehicles and the driving conditions they experience, said Brad Merkel, global vehicle line executive. A similar development process will precede the launch of the truck in the U.S. market. The new Colorado isnt a stereotypical pickup design with a boxy cab, hood and cargo box. Its a sculpted, athletic-looking truck and has a youthful appeal. Wherever its sold, its exterior design conveys the strength of Chevrolet, Barra said. A signature Chevrolet dual-port grille takes up lots of frontend real estate. The center bar is body-colored and wears the gold Chevy bow tie, and the openings are framed in chrome and filled with black honeycomb mesh. The hood rises above the flared fenders power-dome style, and projector-beam headlamps are interestingly cut into the fenders, with the clear tops exposed. The lower fascia mostly is body colored, with a black chin/skid plate at the center and chromeframed fog lamps at each end. If the truck on display wearing bent spoke wheels is an indicator, it appears the Colorado will be offered with creative wheel designs. Designers gave the Colorado rakish A-pillars, a roofline that drops at the rear, and rear windows that are distinctively cut with rising lower corners. At the rear are three-element horizontal taillamps and a chrome bumper topped with a black protective surface. Within the cab, the two-tone design is straightforward, featuring Chevrolets signature dual-cockpit instrument panel styling that blends with the door panels. This effect, Barra said, is intended to amplify the spacious feel. Gauges, which are three-dimensional designs, are inspired by motorcycle styling. The center stack features a circular climate-control layout with buttons surrounding a large knob. This center panel drops to form a U-shaped base on the floor, which is home for the shifter. From that point, the center console swoops back and upward to a tall armrest/storage compartment. The powerplants that will be available in the U.S. models remains a big question. The Colorado trucks launched in Thailand will be equipped with 2.5-liter and 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engines. A primary focus on trucks destined for the U.S. market will be fuel economy, Barra said, noting fuel efficiency and value will be important elements separating the Colorado from full-size pickups. We have both (fullsize and midsize) products in the portfolio, and we think that both can co-exist and provide a different value proposition, depending what the needs of the customer are, she said. This is a very different product and I think its going to have its own value proposition for a segment of the consumers in the marketplace. What customers want and need from a pickup can be different across the segments, Barra said. Some are looking for work trucks and others simply are passionate about driving trucks. Theres room in the marketplace, she said, to build pickups to accommodate the needs of both types of consumers. Tim Spell is automotive editor of the Houston Chronicle InMotion section.

C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, D ECEMBER 20, 2011 D5 Women Auto Know: Maintenance is Key to Longevity W omen car owners take a lesson from something Im schooled in: By not doing maintenance on the car Im making payments on every month, Im flushing money down the drain. The next car you buy will be more expensive than the one you drive now. Thats a guarantee. Think about car care as money in the bank. The economy will force most of us to hold on longer to the vehicles we have. My advice is to take that owners manual out of the glove box once in a while and refer to it. They are usually very easy to read and as you learn the different systems in your vehicle youll communicate better with your technician. Here are car care functions women auto know: Fluids: If fluids are low and/or dirty, the your vehicle gets dehydrated just like we do. You already know you have to get the engine oil chnaged. But, check your car manual to see at what mileage an oil change is recommended. Depending on the kind of oil you use, an oil change is advisable every 7,000 miles or if your vehicle uses synthetic oil, a change can wait until the vehicle has been driven 15,000 to 20,000 miles. You dont necessarily have to buy the every 3,000 miles advice. Other fluids that will need checking or replacing are transmission, power steering, brake, windshield, anti-freeze/coolant and differential, manual transmission and transfer case, if your vehicle is so equipped. Dirty fluids can cause premature wear. Filters: Dirty, clogged filters can decrease performance. Your vehicle has several filters, including ones for air and fuel filters. The cabin filter may need replacing if you notice heat or air conditioning effectiveness reduced. Belts and Hoses: The Car Care Council says that not replacing the timing belt between 60,000 and 90,000 miles can cause a breakdown or serious engine damage. V-belts and serpentine belts should be examined for cracks, frays, glazing or excessive wear. Hoses should be replaced when leaking, brittle, cracked, rusted, swollen or restricted, according to CCC. Check them at each oil change. Brakes: Have your brake system inspected every year. Check with your service manager to confirm that theyve over linings, rotors and drums. If you hear grinding noises, or if the brake pedal feels squishy or goes to the floor, or the steering wheel shakes when brakes are applied, then youve waited too long for a check-up. Battery: Check the connections and make sure they are clean, tight and corrosion free. TrustMyMechanic.com says loose or dirty battery cables are a common no-start condition. Cable ends and battery terminals should be cleaned with a wire brush and light sand paper periodically to remove any corrosion buildup. Exhaust System: Inspect for leaks, damage and broken supports or hangars if you hear unusual noises. Leaks can cause carbon monoxide to get into the passenger cabin. Heating, Ventilation and Airconditioning (HVAC): If the heating and cooling in your vehicle isnt up to par, then you need to have your HVAC systems checked, especially if youre coming up on extreme weather. The HVAC is connected to the defroster, so as winter approaches it is important to have those systems working. Steering and Suspension: Run an annual check of the systems, including shock absorbers, struts and chassis parts such as ball joints, tie rod ends and other related components. Tires: Regularly check your tire pressure on cold tires. Low tire pressure has a negative impact on fuel economy. But check tread as well. Uneven tire wear, or a shimmy/shake, may indicate your vehicle is due for an alignment. Tires should also be checked for bulges and bald spots. Wipers: If your windshield wipers are not cleaning properly, its time to replace them so you can see when youre driving in heavy precipitation, rain or snow. Lighting: Replace all exterior and interior lights that go out. For more information on maintenance visit www.carcare.org where you can send for a free booklet that will provide more detail. It can also be read online. I also found that trustmymechanic.com can provide anyone even those of us who arent handy with a detailed, easily digested, education on how to take care of your vehicle. Learn whats under your vehicles hood: Ford F-150 EcoBoost Challenge competitor Chris Tracy, left, talks about the trucks engine and how he drove the vehicle for a week with Tammy and Michael Miller at California Trails Middle School.

The holiday of Hanukkah, I would call a minor holiday with major importance, said Mordecai Kamlot, a cantor at Congregation Beth Sholom. He said the holiday of Hanukkah celebrates the victory of the first war fought for religious freedom in the world. The origins of Hanukkah go back to the year 168 B.C.E. (before the common era), when the Jews of Judea began a revolt against the Syrian Greeks who had greatly restricted Congregation Beth Sholom Cantor Mordecai Kamlot prepares for Hanukkah, which starts today and runs through Wednesday, Dec. 28.CATHY KAPULKA / Chronicle Festival of Lights starts today Hanukkah comemmorates event in Jewish history See FESTIVAL/ Page A9 CHRISVANORMER Staff WriterFLORAL CITY First is always best, especially for berries. If you get to the market first, you get a better price, said Dudley Calfee, general manager of Ferris Farms in Floral City. For the fifth year in a row, Ferris Farms has harvested the first commercially grown flat of strawberries this growing season, from November to April, in the state of Florida, an honor awarded by the Florida Strawberry Growers Association (FSGA). We dont know what Dudleys doing to keep winning, said Ted Campbell, executive director of the FSGA. We may have to make him retire the award to give someone else a chance. Admitting he was joking, Campbell said Ferris Farms has been consistent in producing strawberries from early October. Most growers dont have ripe fruit until November. The competition for the earliest strawberries was set up years ago for fun, Campbell said. Recognition also is given to growers with the highest yield per acre. The FSGA has about 100 member growers. Id say about 95 percent of our members are in Hillsborough County, Campell said. A few other members are in Polk and Manatee counties, but Ferris Farms is the northernmost strawberry grower in the FSGA. That makes producing the earliest ripe berries all the more extraordinary. The first year we tried it to see if we could do it, Calfee said. Then we wanted to see if we could do it again. After that, winning the recognition became a matter of pride and a part of the farms culture. The strawberries grow on 83 acres of fields on Duval Island in Floral City. Calfee also credits the water surrounding the growing site for providing enough warmth to ripen early strawberries. Calfee is on the board of directors with the FSGA and is chairman of its research committee. The research committee funds projects from a $300,000 budget to First fruits reap reward MATT BECK/ChronicleDudley Calfee, general manager of Ferris Farms in Floral City, recently received recognition from the Florida Strawberry Growers Association for harvesting the first commercially harvested flat of strawberries in the 2011-12 growing season. This is the fifth consecutive year the farm has received the distinction. Calfee says the 12-acre strawberry field pictured behind him will produce between 35,000-40,000 flats of berries during the season. Ferris Farms harvests berries over an 83-acre area. Each strawberry field will be picked every three to four days during the season. The season will end in midApril, according to the farms general manager.

Layaway angels appear in Citrus Charitable movement has sprung up all across country See ANGELS/ Page A9 Associated PressNEW YORK Its been 30 years since gasoline took such a big bite out of the family budget. When the gifts from Grandma are unloaded and holiday travel is over, the typical American household will have spent $4,155 filling up this year, a record. That is 8.4 percent of what the median family takes in, the highest share since 1981. Gas averaged more than $3.50 a gallon this year, another unfortunate record. And next year isnt likely to bring relief. In the past, high gas prices in the United States have gone hand-in-hand with economic good times, making them less damaging to family finances. Now prices are high despite slow economic growth and weak demand. Thats because demand for crude oil is rising globally, especially in the developing nations of Asia and Latin America. But it puts the squeeze on the U.S., where unemployment is high and many people who have jobs arent getting raises. The trap has caught Michael Reed of Charlotte, N.C. He hasnt been able to find work since he lost his computer-support job in 2009. Now high gas prices are claiming more of what he has left. He and his wife wont exchange gifts this Christmas. I try to drive as little as possible so it doesnt take such a chunk out of my wallet, he says. In 1981, when the economy was sliding into recession and oil prices were high because of Middle East turmoil, gas ate up 8.8 percent of the typical family budget, says Fred Rozell of the Oil Price Information Service. Over the past decade, gas has taken up 5.7 percent of Gas prices took toll in 2011 Fuel eats up highest portion of household budgets in 30 years See GAS/ Page A2 HEALTH & LIFE:Your brain on bargainsOn a tight budget?

the family budget. If families had spent only 5.7 percent this year, they would have saved $1,300. For this year, gas should average $3.53 per gallon. Thats 76 cents more than last year. Its 29 cents per gallon more than 2008, when gas last set an annual record, $3.24. That year, the price of oil hit a record in the summer but collapsed when the financial crisis struck in the fall. Besides leaving families less money to eat out and go to the movies, high gas prices take a disproportionate toll on consumer confidence. People are more aware of small changes in gas prices because they drive past the signs all the time. And a buck spent on gas has less bang in the economy than, say, a dollar spent at a restaurant. The U.S. is an oilimporting country, so many of the dollars spent on gas ultimately leave the country instead of being invested here in new ventures and jobs. James Hamilton, an economics professor at the University of California, San Diego, who studies energy prices, estimates that high gasoline prices reduced economic growth by about 0.5 percent for the year a substantial hit for an economy only growing at an annual rate of about 2 percent. Still, it could be worse. The U.S. economy is much more fuel-efficient than it was during the oil spikes of the late 1970s and early 1980s. In 1980, for every $1,000 of economic output, 1.07 barrels of oil were consumed. By 2010, it took half that 0.53 barrels, says Judith Dwarkin, chief energy economist at ITG Investment Research. Today, the U.S. uses almost no oil to generate electricity. The percentage of households using heating oil has fallen. And vehicles are less thirsty than ever 20 percent more fuel-efficient than they were in 1980. Also, the low price of natural gas has kept heating and electricity costs down for the same households spending more on gas. Relief from high gas prices is nowhere in sight, though. Ed Morse, head of commodities research at Citibank, expects oil to average $100 per barrel next year, which would eclipse 2011s average of about $95 per barrel. Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at OPIS, expects gasoline prices to approach $4 per gallon again next spring. Drivers are keeping gas guzzlers in the driveway, combining trips and buying more efficient cars. Compared with the year before, American gas consumption has been down every week for more than nine months, according to MasterCard SpendingPulse, a spending survey. But that only helps so much. Hunter Collins, a software support technician who lives in Richmond, Maine, commutes 40 miles each way to his job in Falmouth. He has started to carpool with a colleague and to take his wifes more fuel-efficient car to work when it is his turn to drive. Its still not enough. He says hes going to sell his beloved 8-cylinder Dodge Charger. Shes my baby, but Im going to have to switch to something more economical, he says. A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterHERNANDO Two people were arrested Monday in an alleged shooting incident over drugs and missing cash in Hernando, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Micah Joseph Lamb, 300 E. Wilda Ave., Inverness, was charged with two counts of attempted murder while Kimberly Anne Ericson, same address, was charged with two counts of complicity in the crime. According to the report, Lamb became enraged after he went to the shooting victims residence to purchase drugs and had money stolen from him. Lamb and Ericson reportedly returned to the scene of the missing money and drug purchase to confront the residents. The argument escalated and Ericson reportedly told Lamb where he could locate a gun hidden in the backyard. Lamb allegedly retrieved the gun, went to a closed side door and shot at it. The two shooting victims were hit with multiple shotgun pellets in the back, neck and buttocks areas. A witness walking down the street reported hearing shots and seeing Lamb running from the residence with a gun and getting into a car and leaving. Lamb was soon apprehended. No bond was set for Lamb and Ericson.Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at 352-564-2925 or at asidibe @chronicleonline.com. A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterINVERNESS An Inverness man used a social networking site to keep abreast of a burglary victims schedule, breaking into the victims home and hauling off valuables while the person was out of town, according to a Citrus County Sheriffs Office report. The alleged thief also contributed to the delinquency of a minor by having the youth help in committing the crimes. James Joseph Gleason, 20, 124 Talmage Ave., was arrested Dec. 15 and is facing charges of burglary (becoming armed), grand theft, contributing to the delinquency and trafficking in stolen properties. Gleason reportedly told investigators he knew no one was going to be at his target home because the homeowner posted on their Facebook site they were going to be at an event. Gleason and his juvenile co-defendant reportedly went to the house, broke a back window and stole numerous firearms and accessories. The pair reportedly took, among other things, laptops and even an urn containing ashes. However, Gleason reportedly told investigators, they felt a pang of remorse and returned the urn. Gleason reportedly proceeded to get rid of many of the firearms to pay for his childs needs. Investigators said Gleason told them where to find most of the items. Bond was $34,500. Other major arrests: Lawrence James Vickers, 44, Crystal River, Saturday of trafficking in cocaine. According to the report, a gold Cadillac was stopped for a faulty tag light and while the deputy was writing a warning for the driver, a K-9 officer arrived on the scene and the dog started sniffing. The dog soon alerted officers to the presence of narcotics. Investigators ordered the driver of the vehicle out of the car and patted him down, but no drugs were found. Officers soon turned their attention to Vickers, who was a passenger in the vehicle. On the ground near the passenger door, officers reportedly noticed a baggie of crack cocaine and ordered Vickers out of the vehicle. Investigators soon noticed another baggie which seemed to contain powder cocaine. As Vickers emerged from the vehicle, more baggies were found. A pat down of Vickers revealed more than $3,000 in cash. The crack cocaine weighed 14.5 grams and the powder cocaine was 4.5 grams. Vickers bond was $50,000. Shawn Allen Thomas, 35, 1574 S. Iroquois Ave., Homosassa, on Dec. 14 of burglary becoming armed, plan and supervise trafficking in stolen goods, grand theft and providing false information to a pawn broker. According to the report, Thomas broke into a Crystal River home and stole, among other things, several firearms and a Nintendo DS XL. Thomas reportedly proceeded to pawn the stolen items.

AroundTHE STATE MiamiEducation board OKs new FCAT scoresThe state Board of Education approved a new set of passing scores for Floridas standardized test Monday designed to ensure students are ready for college, but which could cause more students to fail. The board voted unanimously in favor of the new scores for the revised Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test in math and reading during a conference call. Under the new scores, the percentage of students not earning a high enough score to advance to the fourth grade or graduate from high school is likely to increase. According to state estimates, the number of students not passing the third grade FCAT reading exam required to advance to the fourth grade would rise from 16 to 18 percent. Meanwhile, the number earning a high enough score to pass the 10th grade exam, required to graduate, is slated to decline from 60 to 52 percent.JacksonvilleWinn-Dixie stores sold to Bi-Lo for $560MThe Jacksonville-based supermarket chain WinnDixie is being sold in a deal valued at $560 million to BiLo LLC, the companies said Monday, creating a huge grocery operator in the South. Shares of Winn-Dixie, which has more than twice the number of stores of its buyer, jumped about 70 percent in early trading. The company had struggled in the past, entering into bankruptcy protection in 2005, but has been revamping operations in recent years. The combined company will have about 690 stores and 63,000 workers in eight states in the southern U.S. Winn-Dixie Stores Inc. will become a privately held subsidiary and its ticker will be removed from the Nasdaq. Bi-Lo is a private company.GainesvilleTeens break into restaurant, cook mealPolice said two teenagers broke into a north Florida Chinese restaurant and cooked some chicken gizzards.

They were charged with burglary and petit theft. From wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3TUESDAY, DECEMBER 20, 2011 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Clarifications A story on Page A1 of Fridays edition of the Chronicle Lawsuit alleges Medicare fraud at CMHS, requires clarification. The story may have given readers the impression the federal government initiated a lawsuit against the hospital. That is not so. Former hospital business manager Randy Stein is the plaintiff on behalf of the government. However, the U.S. Attorneys Office must approve any agreements or settlements in the case short of a jurys decision. A photo on page A1 of Sundays edition, Sweet, sweet Florida history, needs clarification. The photo, showing a recipe card for orange meringue pie, was from the countys historical archives. The picture was meant to help illustrate Floridas citrus history and did not contain the entire recipe. However, if you go to www.food.com and type orange meringue pie in the search box, about 12 recipes will appear. Happy baking! MIKEWRIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS Another check is going in the mail to Citrus Memorial Health System for its hospital treatment of charity care. The Citrus County Hospital Board of Trustees approved a $68,371 payment Monday after a review of patient billing showed trustees owed that amount for the hospitals services to the poor. The trustees attorney, Bill Grant, suggested the board approve the amount but hold off the payment until the boards Jan. 9 meeting. Grant noted the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation was recently sued for Medicare fraud by a former business manager and hinted more legal trouble may be on the way. Grant said trustees could be on the hook for paying fines in legal proceedings against the foundation involving Medicare fraud because trustees lease the hospital to the foundation. Trustees, however, said they have an agreement with the hospital to reimburse for charity care once their finance director, Harry Kilgore, reviews and approves billing statements. I want us to stay true to our word, board Chairman Michael Smallridge said. Trustee Dr. V. Upender Rao said the public would frown on the trustees withholding of a payment. I think it would be bad P .R., he said. Its not a big deal either way except to the community at large. Trustee Ed Lytton said he didnt see any risk in making the payment. If it were a million dollars, Id say hold it, he said. For $68,000, its not worth the effort. In other business the board: Decided to continue meeting in Grants law office conference room until after a judges decision on the constitutionality of a state law that gives trustees oversight of the hospital. Trustees have considered moving their meeting location to a place that provides better public access. Heard Smallridges plan to establish public stakeholder meetings to begin formulating a communitywide health plan. The meetings will begin in early 2012. Backed in concept Smallridges proposal to provide a program for non-emergency charity care to qualified citizens. The plan, modeled after one in Lake City, would allow qualified individuals up to $1,500 in free medical care with participating physicians and medical centers. Smallridge said he is still gathering information before formally presenting it for board approval.Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com. Board OKs charity check to CMHS Trustees approve more than $68K for services to poor Road work delayed MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleThe resurfacing project on North Turkey Oak Drive from County Road 495 to North Holiday Drive in Crystal River has been deferred from 2013 to 2014. Bill Grantattorney for CMHS trustees suggested the board OK the amount but hold off paying it. CHRISVANORMER Staff WriterFive road-resurfacing projects in Citrus County will be delayed because state revenue collection fell short of its forecast. The following affected roads are: North Turkey Oak Drive, Crystal River, from County Road 495 to North Holiday Drive resurfacing deferred from 2013 to 2014. County Road 488 (Dunnellon Road) from U.S. 19, Crystal River, to West Rainbow Street, Dunnellon resurfacing deferred from 2104 to 2015. County Road 488 from West Rainbow Street to U.S. 41, Dunnellon resurfacing deferred from 2015 to 2016. County Road 495 (North Citrus Avenue), Dunnellon, from West Dunklin Street to West Riverbend Road resurfacing deferred from 2016 to 2017. North Elkcam Boulevard, Citrus Springs, from North Deltona Boulevard to County Road 488 resurfacing delayed from 2016 to 2017. Were disappointed that the projects have been deferred, said Ken Frink, the countys public works director. But the county has adequate resources to handle any maintenance required during the one-year periods. The funding comes from the Small County Outreach Program (SCOP), Frink said. As Citrus County is the only small county within District 7, it gets all the SCOP funding. According to Lee Royal with Florida Department of Transportation District 7, the October 2011 Revenue Estimating Conference reported a $1.2 billion reduction in revenue collection. The state estimated the revenue from gasoline taxes, titles and transportation-related fees. The net commitment impact to the work program totals $916 million, Royal advised counties in District 7, which includes Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties. The impact to District 7 is $73.1 million. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicleonline. com or 352-564-2916.

Nuclear plants up for debate Residents may speak at Jan. 12 public meeting Associated PressLAKELAND A central Florida police officer was in critical condition Monday after being shot while checking on a complaint about three suspicious men near an apartment complex, authorities said. Lakeland Police Officer Arnulfo Crispin underwent surgery early Monday and his condition was grave, police spokeswoman Ann Dinges said. Crispin, 25, radioed shortly around 10 p.m. Sunday that he had stopped to talk to three suspicious men near an apartment complex, Police Chief Lisa Womack said. What happened to Crispin next remains unclear. When backup officers arrived, they found him shot and unresponsive, Dinges said. Police cordoned off a large section of the area overnight as officers searched vehicles and went door-to-door seeking information about the suspects. At least 12 law enforcement agencies offered assistance in the manhunt, Dinges said. One man, 19-year-old Kyle Williams of Lakeland, faces a charge of attempted murder of a law enforcement officer. Williams surrendered Monday morning. His mother had come to the police station and talked to him on the phone while she was there. She put Williams on the phone with an officer, who instructed him to turn himself in to an officer on a Lakeland street, Dinges said. No other suspects were being sought, Dinges said. We are certain we have the right individual in custody, Chief Lisa Womack said at a news conference. Lakeland police Lt. Al Wilson said Williams has a criminal history and may have some gang affiliations. Crispin has been a member of the 226-member department for 18 months. Suspect in custody after police officer shot

Associated PressMIAMI Last year, Florida legislators made historic changes to education. Tenure for new teachers was eliminated. Instructor evaluations were revamped and linked to student test scores. And a new compensation system was passed to reward those whose students achieve the highest gains. In the 2012 session, which starts Jan. 10, the focus is likely to shift from K-12 to higher education. Gov. Rick Scott and others say they want to find ways to make the state university system more effective and boost the number of students graduating with degrees in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Whether the Legislature is ready to pass widesweeping changes to higher education is another matter. To date, no bills have been filed and several legislators said they are still researching what possible action to take. Redrawing the states congressional and legislative districts and the budget are likely to be at the top of the agenda, and lawmakers will also be focused on effectively implementing last years K-12 overhaul. I hope we can make some changes, said House Speaker Dean Cannon, RWinter Park. But my real goal is to get the dialogue going, and then hopefully the leaders that follow me can continue that. Scott caused uproar in academia this fall when he urged the state to look at the employment outcomes for all degree programs and pointed to anthropology as one field of study where more people werent needed. He also touted the higher education overhaul pushed by Republican presidential candidate and Texas Gov. Rick Perry. The Texas plan includes ideas like basing professor evaluations on student reviews and how many students they teach. So far, its not gathering much momentum in Florida. I dont think anyone would seriously say thats the sole basis for evaluating faculty, said Rep. Bill Proctor, R-St. Augustine. Proctor, chairman of the House Education Committee, said legislators and staff are focusing on nearly a dozen areas for potential changes including tuition, accountability and sharpening university mission statements. Controversial topics like tenure havent been addressed yet, Proctor said. Its a high-profile issue but its really not the thing were looking at too much, Proctor said. Right now if I were to say whats (the) highest concern, its sharpening the focus of our mission because its reasonably clear theres not going to be a lot of state money for the university system in the foreseeable future, so we have to make sure we are spending it in the right places for the right things. Even Scott conceded changes might not happen this session. I know this sessions going to be harder to get things done just because we are going to spend so much time on redistricting, Scott said. But I think to the benefit of our students I think the earlier we make sure that individuals are getting degrees in areas that they can get jobs its good for the state.

Inheriting power from his father in 1994, he led his nation through a devastating famine while frustrating the U.S. and other global powers with an on-again, off-again approach to talks on giving up nuclear arms in return for energy and other assistance. Kim was one of the last remnants of a Cold Warera that ended years earlier in most other countries. His death was announced Monday by state television two days after he died. North Koreas news agency reported he had died at 8:30 a.m. Saturday after having a heart attack on a train, adding he had been treated for cardiac and cerebrovascular diseases for a long time. He was 69, according to official records, but some reports indicate he was 70. Kim, who reputedly had a taste for cigars, cognac and gourmet cuisine, is believed to have suffered a stroke in 2008 but he had appeared relatively vigorous in photos and video from recent trips to China and Russia and in numerous trips around the country documented by state media. His longtime pursuit of nuclear weapons and his militarys repeated threats to South Korea and the U.S. stoked worries that fighting might break out again on the Korean peninsula or North Korea might provide weapons of mass destruction to terrorist movements. The Korean War ended more than 50 years ago in a cease-fire, and the two sides remain technically in a state of war. Kim Jong Il, who took power after the death of his father, unveiled his third son as his successor in September 2010, putting the 20something Kim Jong Un in high-ranking posts. On Monday, the North Korean news agency dubbed the son a great successor as the country rallied around him. Few firm facts are available when it comes to North Korea, and not much is clear about Kim Jong Il, the man known as the Dear Leader. North Korean legend has it that Kim was born on Mount Paektu, one of Koreas most cherished sites, in 1942, a birth heralded in the heavens by a pair of rainbows and a brilliant new star. Soviet records, however, indicate he was born in Siberia in 1941. His father, Kim Il Sung, is still revered as the founder of North Korea. The elder Kim fought for independence from Koreas colonial ruler, Japan, from a base in Russia for years. He returned to Korea in 1945, emerging as a communist leader and becoming North Koreas first leader in 1948. He meshed Stalinist ideology with a cult of personality that encompassed him and his son. Their portraits hang in every building in North Korea, and every dutiful North Korean wears a Kim Il Sung lapel pin. Even before he took over, there were signs the younger Kim would maintain and perhaps exceed his fathers hard-line stance.

Apopka Ave., Inverness www.InvernessHearing.com 726-4327 Since 1983 Professional Hearing Centers 000A04V Associated PressNEW YORK The stock market took a late afternoon fall Monday after European Union finance ministers failed to come up with the full amount of money pledged for a bailout fund. Banks led the way down. Morgan Stanley dropped 5.5 percent and Bank of America Corp. sank 4 percent, the biggest fall in the Dow Jones Industrial average. The worry looming over banks stocks is if Europes debt crisis spins out of control, European banks would fail and damage U.S. banks. Big banks in Europe and the U.S. are linked through the web of global financial markets. If Europe is going to be bring us down its going to come through the financial firms, said J.J. Kinahan, chief derivatives strategist at TD Ameritrade. The Dow lost 100.13 points, or 0.8 percent to close at 11,766.26. The average lost 55 points in the last hour of trading as reports emerged the E.U. finance ministers couldnt drum up the full $261 billion they planned to give to the International Monetary Fund. European leaders had pledged the money for a special IMF fund to help struggling European countries at a summit meeting less than two weeks ago. Cautious comments from the head of the European Central Bank also helped push stocks lower. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 14.31 points, or 1.2 percent, to 1,205.35. The Nasdaq composite index fell 32.19 points, or 1.3 percent, to 2,523.14. Mario Draghi, the ECB president, said Monday the central bank was looking for ways to keep the Eurozones bailout fund working even if credit rating agencies strip France of its AAA grade. The bailout fund depends on the top ratings of France, Germany and the countries that contribute to it. Draghi also restated his view large-scale government bond purchases were outside the central banks responsibility. In the U.S., a gauge of sentiment among builders inched up to its highest level since May 2010. The National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo builder sentiment index added two points to 21 in December. Any reading below 50 still reflects a negative outlook. Among companies making large moves Monday:Cablevision Systems Corp. rose 2 percent after an analyst from Citibank said a recent drop in the companys stock seemed way overdone. The stock has lost 27 percent from the end of October through last Friday following the unexpected resignation of its chief operating officer.Bank of America ended the day at $4.99.

OPINION Page A8TUESDAY, DECEMBER 20, 2011 Thank school workersYou would be surprised at how many school staff members touch your childs life in a day. After they leave the house, a bus driver brings laughing, noisy children to school safely. If you are driving them to school, you will possibly pass a crossing guard who watches all the traffic. As they arrive at school, members of the school staff greet them to make sure they get into school without a problem. Cafeteria workers make and serve a healthy breakfast and others make sure they dont slip or slide as the floors are cleaned all the time. Before the school day actually starts, some students are in labs working on math and reading skills with a paraprofessional and other students are learning to put on the morning show from a media specialist. The educational day has begun. Some students may start with art, music, physical education or technology classes taught by highly qualified teachers in their field. Classroom teachers teach reading, math, science, social studies, writing, etc. Some students leave their homeroom for extra help in reading or math, speech and even for gifted education. They check books out from the library, which is staffed by a certified teacher with a library science degree and most likely a trained teachers aide. Its lunchtime and its back to the cafeteria for a lunch that meets federal requirements with adults in the cafeteria. The custodial crew is cleaning restrooms, the cafeteria floor and is starting to vacuum in the classrooms. Paraprofessionals (aides) work with small groups all day long. Dont forget the office staff who checks your childs attendance, answers the phones and questions of many people, does the ordering of materials, takes temperatures and hands out medications. Guidance makes sure those students without receive clothing and food and dry the tears of those who have lost a loved one. Please dont forget the administration that keeps all of these people scheduled and know children by their first names. Thank someone you know who works for the education of our children!Cathy Brust LecantoHospital disupteThank you, Mr. Mulligan! Finally, a thorough explanation of the CMH debacle anyone can understand. Now I can understand the reaction of CMH to the geriatric medical complex that was proposed by a citizen group focused on economic development in Citrus County. CMH does not want any competition coming from the private sector in spite of the financial and social benefit such a medical complex would bring to Citrus County businesses and citizens. If it will not support a private enterprise solution to deliver an economic benefit to Citrus County and a medical service to the largest percentage retirement population in Florida, then it should seek county and state approval to fund such a project itself. This project should be moved on by CMH and the Board of County Commissionsers just in case the Port of Citrus project does not prove feasible. The geriatric medical complex is considered to be a very feasible project by those in the private enterprise, medical and development communities.Tom Paslay Sugarmill Woods Perhaps not since Madalyn Murray OHair and Carl Sagan has there been such an evangelical atheist as Christopher Hitchens, the writer and social commentator who died last week after a long and public battle with esophageal cancer. Hitchens railed against those who believe in God. While an original writer, and smart, there was nothing original about his unbelief. Such views have been expressed since the dawn of humanity. They have also been answered by some of the wisest people who have ever lived. There is a difference between smart and wise. As that Scripture in which Hitchens disbelieved says, The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. (Proverbs 9:10) I have always found atheists to be interesting people because they just may be the worlds smallest minority group, one that gets smaller still as its members pass on and meet God face to face. Still, atheists demand physical proof of Gods existence, as if they could bring God down and make Him into their image. What kind of God would that be? He would be their equal and, thus, not God at all. Evidence, alone, has never moved anyone from unbelief to faith. If proof were enough, all of the unbelieving contemporaries of Jesus (and Moses) would have believed in God because of the miracles they performed. Two people presented with exactly the same information can respond in opposite ways. Faith is not based solely on facts. It is a gift from a God who exists. Hitchens wrote a book called God is Not Great. Its a clever title, but how would he have known, since they had not been properly introduced? C.S. Lewis, once an atheist and thus conversant with the subject, wrote after his conversion, I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen. Not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. Some people exist, however nervously, believing that this life is all there is. The late singer Peggy Lee put the result of such faith this way: Is that all there is? If thats all there is to life, then lets break out the booze and have a ball, if thats all there is. Why contribute to charity, or perform other good deeds? Without a source to inspire charity, such acts are sentimental affectations, devoid of meaning and purpose. If survival of the fittest is the rule, let only the fit survive. That was the sentiment of Ebenezer Scrooge before his visitation by those three spirits and his subsequent transformation. Let the poor and starving die, he said, ...and decrease the surplus population. Who is to say such a notion is wrong without a standard by which to judge wrong. To object to God is to create morality from a Gallup Poll. In Gallup We Trust doesnt have the same authority. Hitchens was a gifted writer, but who gave him the gift? Why was he not a gifted actor, surgeon or athlete? Why was he not talentless? Was it an evolutionary accident, which would mean his gift and his life were meaningless and merely a chasing after the wind? (See Ecclesiastes) Apparently he thought so. An atheist will tell you he doesnt need God in order to be good, or perform good works. Maybe not, but the very notion of good must have both a definition and a definer. Only God is good, said Jesus. (Mark 10:18) Who is the author of evil? And if God is nonexistent, why do we call it evil? Is one persons evil another persons good? Does such a view lead to ethics that must inevitably be situational? Scripture warns, The fool has said in his heart there is no God. (Psalm 14:1) In this season when many celebrate the object of their faith, there is no joy in the death of one who had faith that God does not exist. Hitchens now knows the truth and that can only be the worst possible news for him. As for the atheists still with us, Christmas is a reminder there is still time to believe and receive the ultimate gift.Direct all mail for Cal Thomas to: Tribune Media Services, 2225 Kenmore Ave., Suite 114, Buffalo, N.Y. 14207.

However, that didnt happen, so the trip home meant slogging through dusty, sandy roads in dry weather and muddy pools in wet weather. For decades, the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) had discussed the roads. When the developer disappeared from the picture, residents realized that it would be up to them to make things happen. They worked with the county, and focused on mobilizing resident and non-resident owners to cede rights of way and agree to assessments for the paving project. It all came together at a recent BOCC meeting, when the board unanimously confirmed a resolution to create a special assessment district plan for the project. Kudos to this resident group for doing the right thing the right way. They did their research, they approached the county with a reasonable request and they agreed to shoulder expenses for work that would directly benefit them, but also benefit the county. This is a nice neighborhood that will certainly increase in value when the roadway improvements are completed. Having felt misled, these Inverness-area residents situation varies significantly from that of owners who knowingly buy on private roads at lower prices, but who later complain to local government about the sorry state of their roads. However, the sound approach employed by the Inverness Village Unit 4 group can serve as an example for how neighbors unified in a cause and willing to make an investment can change their community for the better.

The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE A group of higher education and business leaders said in a report issued Monday that the states colleges and universities should better coordinate on what they do, set goals for increased hightech degree production, and that lawmakers should spend money on schools based on performance. The reports call for additional coordination probably isnt a surprise, coming from a group called the Higher Education Coordinating Council. It set out in part to look for ways the state universities and the college system can better work together to improve access to degrees and improve the efficiency of the system for the state. It began its work before he took office but the groups recommendations mirror calls from Gov. Rick Scott, who has said that Floridas universities should focus more on production of degrees in science, technology, engineering and math, and has talked about university degrees as a commodity, with the consumer being the taxpayer who is paying for the university system, more so than the student. The HECC offered several general recommendations for more central planning of the education system, looking at benefits to society of the system, and less of a free market-based approach, where degree production would be determined more by demand of students. Twenty-first century economic realities and the need for Florida to compete in attracting high-tech, highwage jobs suggests that the state should leverage its resources to ensure that Floridas talent is developed and provided the tools to achieve lifetime learning and success, the report said. The traditional charge of What is best for the student? must now be expanded to include what is best for the taxpayer, the economy and the state as a whole. This is also an opportunity to ensure the skills and knowledge imparted to students are consistent with the traditional values and ideals of public morality which are essential to the general welfare of the state and its citizens, the group said. Which degrees might be consistent with public morality and perhaps more important which ones arent wasnt addressed in the groups report. But the council said that the states universities should identify their strengths and focus on them, funneling students in particular areas to a couple of strong institutions, rather than having all of the schools offer that program, for example. HECC also said the council should get an annual list of prospective programs being planned, as a way to avoid duplication. And, whether or not those programs should start at all should be guided by comparative cost analyses and employment demand, HECC said, echoing another idea put forth by Scott, who has said that degrees in areas that arent promising in terms of jobs should be reduced. The panel also suggested a new funding formula for the State University System and the Florida College System, based on performancebased accountability, though the panel goes into little detail about that. Already, a small part of the states workforce education system is funded based on performance earmarks, but the university system has no such benchmarks that ultimately determine a universitys appropriation. Among its other recommendations in the report, the group said: Various elements of the education system should have goals for increased degree completion, with a particular emphasis on STEM degree production. Incentives should be provided to encourage STEM education. The Legislature should create authority for state colleges and universities to establish and have oversight of their own charter schools preK through 12. The Legislature should align financial aid and grant programs to encourage and accelerate access, graduation and time-to-degree. The grants should be available for summer sessions. The council said it will continue to meet next year. the practice of Judaism. They (Jews of Judea) won the war in 165 B.C.E. and according to the Hebrew Calendar, on the 25th day of Kislev the Temple in Jerusalem was rededicated. When the victorious Jews entered the temple for the first time, they found it had been desecrated by the Greeks, he said. There was only enough pure olive oil to last for one day for the Menorah (a seven-branch candelabra), he said. It was supposed to be lit continuously, the eternal light. He said that oil miraculously lasted eight days and provided enough time to process a new batch of olive oil. Since that time, the Rabbis have mandated that every year Jews must light an eight-branch candelabrum still popularly known as a Menorah. Kamlot said Hanukkah, also called the Festival of Lights, celebrates the two major events the religious victory and the miracle of the oil. Kamlot said the Congregation Beth Sholoms temple is the only one in Citrus County and it hosts 85 families. The holiday begins at sundown on Dec. 20, and on that evening the Citrus County Historical Society will extend the courthouse museum hours to 8 p.m. There will be Hanukkah music and free food, including Latkes (potato pancakes), Sufganiyot (donut holes) and coffee and tea. Its custom to eat certain food that are made in oil, he said. We invite everyone to come down and see the lighting. Hanukkah will run through the evening of Dec. 28.

Most of the projects come through the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. On Monday, Ferris Farms picked and shipped 2,000 flats of strawberries. It also has diversified to offer many other products, including the citrus fruit it started with more than 75 years ago and blueberries that are ready when the strawberry season finishes. Its store offers jams, jellies and strawberry milkshakes. Recently, Calfee brought out a new food group: beef. Anyone who would like to try out home-grown, Duval Island-reared beef will find it in the Ferris store a selection of steaks, roasts and hamburger. We have been raising Black Angus beef for the past few years and selling the calves to kids for 4-H competition and have won our share of top awards, Calfee said. We are pleased to offer such a high quality, natural beef product to our loyal customers. Calfee said the beef is free of hormones and antibiotics, and naturally delicious. He got the idea of selling beef in the Ferris store after a restaurateur, Wolfgang Wolfy Schwickerath, bought one of the 4-H calves and served the beef in his restaurant, The Shamrock Inn, in Floral City. The beef is perfect, Schwickerath said. I will buy another one of those calves at the fair. Ferris is likely best known for supplying the strawberries for the annual Floral City Strawberry Festival, set for the weekend of March 3 and 4 at Floral Park in Floral City and sponsored by the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce. As the 1.7 million strawberry plants can be picked every three to four days, the berries should be abundant. Ferris Farms retail store is at 7607 S.

One lucky recipient was totally caught off guard. Laura Tucker had come home to an answering machine message, asking her to call Kmart in Crystal River. When she did, she learned her $65 layaway balance had been paid for. At first I thought it was a joke, she said. I had never heard of anything like this before. I wanted to say thank you to whoever the person was, but they wouldnt tell me. I think its wonderful. What a surprise. Its a phenomena thats been sweeping the nation, with reports from Ohio to Kentucky to Las Vegas, Miami, Indiana, Iowa and Illinois. According to MondaysMiami Herald, someone paid for more than $400 dollars in layaway gifts at a Hialeah Kmart on Saturday, and at an Ocala Walmart, a man bought $2,500 worth of $100 gift cards for customers. In Winter Garden, the Heraldreports, donations at the local Kmart have reached $5,000 and as high as $15,000 in Orange County, Calif. It happened last year, but nothing like this year, Kellner said. People are giving astronomically. Its the power of the Internet. Its happening all over. He said some of the people he has called break out in tears. Others ask, Are you pulling my leg? How it works: People have come into the store and say they want to remain anonymous yet do something special for someone who could use it. The person pays and a store associate calls the customer to deliver the good news. Average layaway balances have been in the $80 to $100 range, Kellner said. The Walmart Superstore in Inverness reported just one layaway angel, paying off someones $134 balance. Its really opened the eyes of our (employees), Kellner said. Its awesome. I never thought in an economy like this that people could be so generous. Here in Citrus County, were pulling it together.

Travel halted across Great Plains Associated PressALBUQUERQUE, N.M. A late-autumn snowstorm lumbered into the Great Plains on Monday, unleashing snow and fierce winds that turned roads to ice, reduced visibility to zero and jeopardized thousands of holiday motorists travel plans just two days before the official start of winter. The storm was blamed for at least two deaths in Colorado. A guard and an inmate were killed after a prison van lost control on an icy highway five miles east of Limon on Colorados plains. Eight other inmates and a prison employee were hospitalized with moderate to serious injuries, the Colorado State Patrol said. From northern New Mexico and the Texas Panhandle through Oklahoma and northwestern Kansas, blizzard conditions put state road crews on alert and had motorists taking refuge and early exits off major roads. In northern New Mexico, snow and ice forced the closure of all roads from the town of Raton to the Texas and Oklahoma borders about 90 miles away. Hotels in Clayton, N.M., just east of where the three states touch, were nearly full. Linda Pape, general manager of the Clayton Super 8 motel, said it was packed with unhappy skiers who had been headed to lodges in Colorado and elsewhere in New Mexico. They lost a day or two of skiing, and they had budgeted an amount of money they were going to spend, and now they have to spend more staying somewhere else, she said. Pape said its not uncommon for skiers to get stuck in Clayton during the winter, and she keeps two freezers and a refrigerator stocked in case roads are closed. They are not happy, but we are not letting them go hungry, she said. The storm came after much of the country had a relatively mild fall. With the exception of the October snowstorm blamed for 29 deaths on the East Coast, theres been little rain or snow. Many of the areas hit Monday enjoyed relatively balmy 60-degree temperatures just 24 hours earlier. The snow moved into the Oklahoma Panhandle early Monday morning, and 1.5 inches accumulated in about an hour, said Vicki Roberts, who owns the Black Mesa Bed and Breakfast in Kenton. Her inn sits at the base of the 4,973-foot-tall Black Mesa, the highest point in Oklahoma. Looking out her window, she couldnt see it. I have a mail route and Im not going, Roberts said. You just dont get out in this. Well be socked in here. If we lose power, well just read a book in front of the fireplace. Travel throughout the region was difficult. New Mexico shut down a portion of Interstate 25, the major route heading northeast of Santa Fe into Colorado and Clayton police dispatcher Cindy Blackwell said her phones were ringing off the hook with calls from numerous motorists stuck on rural roads.

Shell shuts drilling rig after fluid leakNEW ORLEANS Royal Dutch Shell said it has shut down a drilling rig off the coast of Alabama after about 7,600 gallons of synthetic and biodegradable drilling fluid leaked. Shell said the leak was not from a well on the ocean floor. That is what happened in the massive 2010 BP oil spill. This drilling site was in the same Mississippi Canyon region as the BP spill and is some 7,300 feet deep. The Coast Guard said the problem was reported Sunday and the leaking line was connected to a vessel supplying the drilling fluid. It said more than half of the leaking fluid was oil. Closing Associated PressA boy plays Monday amid garbage at the landfill Bordo Poniente on the outskirts of Mexico City. The city will close one of the worlds largest dumps by Dec. 31 and will instead turn the garbage from millions of people into reusable materials and energy, Mayor Marcelo Ebrard announced Monday. Thousands mourn Czech president PRAGUE Braving the freezing cold, thousands of Czechs bid a personal farewell Monday to former President Vaclav Havel, who led the peaceful revolution that toppled the communist regime in 1989. Mourners waited patiently in a long line in front of the Prague Crossroads at the citys Old Town, where the coffin with Havels body went on display Monday. Many were carrying flowers to honor Havel, who died Sunday at age 75. The government announced a three-day official mourning period will start Wednesday and said it will hold a state funeral, including a Mass, on Friday at the countrys biggest and most famous church, St. Vitus Cathedral. A private funeral for family members will follow at a crematory, Prague Archbishop Dominik Duka said. Prime Minister Petr Necas urged Czech citizens to observe a minute of silence Friday at noon and his government proposed a special law recognizing Havels contribution to freedom and democracy. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A10TUESDAY, DECEMBER 20, 2011 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Associated PressBAGHDAD Iraqs Shiite-led government issued an arrest warrant Monday for the Sunni vice president, accusing him of running a hit squad that assassinated government and security officials extraordinary charges a day after the last U.S. troops left the country. The vice president, Tariq al-Hashemi, left Baghdad on Sunday for the semiautonomous Iraqi region of Kurdistan, presumably hoping Kurdish authorities would not turn him in. Investigative judges banned him the same day from traveling outside of Iraq. The move against the countrys highest-ranking Sunni official marked a sharp escalation in sectarian tensions, raising fears of a resurgence of large-scale bloodshed. Although many Iraqis welcomed the American withdrawal, ending the nine-year U.S. war, there are also considerable fears here that violence will worsen. Iraq is slipping into its worst nightmares now, and Iraqi people will pay a high price because of the struggle among political blocs after the pullout of U.S. troops, said Baghdadbased political analyst Kadhum al-Muqdadi, a Shiite. White House spokesman Jay Carney said the Obama administration had expressed its concerns to all of the parties involved regarding the issuing of the warrant. We are urging all sides to work to resolve differences peacefully and through dialogue in a manner consistent with the rule of law and the democratic political process, Carney said. Sunnis suspected the charges against al-Hashemi were politically motivated. Al-Hashemi is an old rival of Prime Minister Nouri alMaliki, and the arrest order came two days after the main Sunni-backed political bloc, Iraqiya, suspended its participation in parliament because al-Maliki refused to give up control over key posts. Al-Maliki, a Shiite, has made a series of moves in recent months to consolidate his hold on power. Hundreds of former members of Saddam Husseins Baath Party have been rounded up, allegedly as security threats, although no proof has been given. North Koreans mourn Kim Jong Il Youngest son proclaimed successor Associated PressPYONGYANG, North Korea North Koreans marched by the thousands Monday to their capitals landmarks to mourn Kim Jong Il, many crying uncontrollably and flailing their arms in grief over the death of their Dear Leader. North Korean state media proclaimed his youngest son, Kim Jong Un, a Great Successor, while a vigilant world watched for any signs of a turbulent transition to the untested leader in an unpredictable nation known to be pursuing nuclear weapons. South Koreas military went on high alert in the face of the Norths 1.2 million-strong armed forces following news of Kims death after 17 years in power. North Korea said Kim died of a heart attack Saturday while carrying out official duties on a train trip. President Barack Obama agreed by phone with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak to closely monitor developments. On the streets of the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, people wailed in grief, some kneeling on the ground or bowing repeatedly. Children and adults laid flowers at key memorials. A tearful Kim Yong Ho said Kim Jong Il had made peoples lives happier. That is what he was doing when he died: working, traveling on a train, he said. Other North Koreans walked past a giant painting of Kim Jong Il and his late father, national founder Kim Il Sung, standing together on Mount Paektu, Kim Jong Ils official birthplace. Wreaths were neatly placed below the painting. How could the heavens be so cruel? Please come back, general. We cannot believe youre gone, Hong Son Ok shouted, her body shaking wildly during an interview with North Koreas official television. A foreigner who teaches at a university in Pyongyang told The Associated Press students told about Kims death looked very serious but didnt show any outward emotion. There was a blanket of silence, said the teacher, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of worries about his security. People were going about their business. Lots of people were lining up to lay flowers at official portraits. People looked a little stunned and very serious, but composed and respectful. He passed away too suddenly to our profound regret, said a statement carried by the Norths official Korean Central News Agency. The heart of Kim Jong Il stopped beating, but his noble and august name and benevolent image will always be remembered by our army and people. He was 69, according to official records, though some reports indicate he was 70.

Attacks hurt Gingrich in Iowa, no letup pre-caucus Associated PressDAVENPORT, Iowa More than $1 million in negative advertising much of it bankrolled by Mitt Romneys allies has eroded Newt Gingrichs standing in Iowa and thrown the Republican presidential race here wide open two weeks before the first votes. The former House speakers Iowa slide mirrors his newfound troubles nationally, and it has boosted Romneys confidence while fueling talk that libertarian-leaning Texas Rep. Ron Paul could pull off a win in the leadoff caucus state Jan. 3. Its very disappointing to see so many of my friends who are running put out such negative junk, Gingrich said Monday as he arrived in Davenport, poking at his opponents even as he insisted he was running an upbeat campaign. I really wish they would have the courage to be positive. Despite his chiding, attacks against him are all but certain to continue. For one, the Restore Our Future political action committee, made up of former Romney staffers from his failed 2008 bid, plans to spend $1.4 million more over the next two weeks, including on a new ad beginning Tuesday thats expected to be aimed at Gingrich. That would bring to roughly $3 million the amount spent by the group against Gingrich.

Oh my God, there was a lot of tension out there. They (Lake Weir) were an aggressive team. It was kind of a weird game. Jordan Martin scored the first goal at 22:34. She took a pass from twin sister, Breanna, and tapped it in from five yards out. Taylor Christian scored the fourth goal at 10:31 in the second half. She scored on a breakaway from 12 yards out. Benoist finished off the scoring, blasting one in from 18 yards out with less than two minutes left in the contest. Lecanto dominated from start to finish. They had 18 shots on goal in the first half and 22 in the second half. Lake Weir had just one shot on goal in the second half. The game was a physical one and the last match of 2011 for the Panthers. It wasnt one the coach was really proud of. Im glad we got the W, Lecanto coach Roselle Lattin said. Im glad the girls kept their composure. We could have played better. We need to clean up things. Lake Weir was an aggressive team. We figured out what we needed to do. We had a few opportunities and a PK we didnt convert. We know that we could have played better. We know that there are a couple of shots that we could have taken advantage of. Lecanto will play at Citrus on Jan. 4. Chronicle file photoLecanto High Schools Jake Tamposi competed in two events at the FHSAA Class 2A state swim meet this season, taking a fourth-place finish in the 100 breaststroke and ninth place in the 200 freestyle. 2011-12 BOYS SWIMMER OF THE YEAR LARRYBUGG CorrespondentJake Tamposi finished his senior year by competing at the highest level for a high school swimmer: the FHSAA Class 2A state meet in Orlando. The Lecanto High senior essentially locked up the title of the Citrus Chronicle Male Swimmer of the Year for 2011 with that feat, although he was the odds-on favorite for the title even before the season began. Tamposi was the only male swimmer at the state meet, which was his third trip in four years. Tamposi saved his best for last. He swam a personal best, finishing fourth in the 100 breaststroke at the state meet. His time was 59:18. He also had a personal best when he finished ninth in the 200 Freestyle with a time of 1:43.9. Jake took second place in the 200 Breaststroke at the regional. He had a time of 1:00.17. Tamposi was fourth in the region with a time of 1:46.08 in the 200 Freestyle. The Panther was happy to accept the Chronicle honor. I feel very honored and proud of what I have accomplished and proud to have an impact on local swimming, said Tamposi. He said he is going to swim at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts. It is a NCAA Division III school, which does not give out scholarships. The Lecanto coach was always impressed with his ace swimmer. Every time he got in the water, said coach Matt Bouthillier that day, it was his best time ever. From the time he got into the water, he was ready. Jake holds more records than any male Lecanto swimmer in history. It was beautiful the way that he ended the season. At the banquet, he gave a moving speech. He suggested that anyone can use hard work and dedication can allow people to achieve success. Tamposi is the last of a swimming dynasty, following his two brothers in outstanding swimming careers. Oldest brother Lou, a 2008 Lecanto graduate, also reached the state meet and is now Tamposis fourth-place finish at state meet tops career of accolades at Lecanto See TAMPOSI/ Page B3 SPORTS BRIEFSWarriors keep up winning waysThe Seven Rivers Christian boys basketball team earned a 51-48 victory over Academy at the Lakes on Monday night at the Bishop McLaughlin holiday tournament.

Adam Gage led Seven Rivers with 16 points while teammate Sam Jones added 10.Bucs place Talib on injured reserveTAMPA Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib has been placed on injured reserve with a sore right hamstring that sidelined him much of the past three games. The team announced the move Monday, two days after Talib was able to play only one series during a 31-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Defensive tackle Jovan Haye was signed to fill the roster opening. Talib started 13 games this season and returned both of his interceptions for touchdowns. He also finished 2010 on IR, missing five games with a hip injury. Haye spent three seasons with Tampa Bay from 2006-08. He has also played two seasons for Tennessee and appeared in one game this year with Detroit. Tight end Martell Webb was released from the practice squad, replaced by linebacker Mike Balogun.FIU, Marshall excited for bowlST.

Masters field forms, some left wondering List already over 90 Associated PressJACKSONVILLE Ernie Els and Retief Goosen enter the 2012 season without any assurances of playing in the Masters. The field for the Masters took shape Monday after the final official week of golf tournaments around the world. Among the criteria for an invitation is to be among the top 50 in the world ranking at the end of the season. Els, a three-time major champion who has suffered plenty of heartaches at Augusta National, fell to No. 56 in the final ranking. Els has been eligible for the Masters every year since his debut in 1994. Goosen, a two-time U.S. Open champion, is at No. 53. Jim Furyk narrowly claimed a spot in the Masters, to be played April 5-8, when he finished at No. 50. Furyk began the year at No. 5 in the world. Others who got into the Masters through the world ranking were Ian Poulter, Paul Casey, Alvaro Quiros, K.T. Kim, Simon Dyson, Sang-moon Bae, Rickie Fowler, Francesco Molinari, Miguel Angel Jimenez and Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano. Els and Goosen still can get in by winning a PGA Tour event before the Masters (except those tournaments held opposite World Golf Championships), or by getting into the top 50 in the world ranking published the week before the Masters. Others who have yet to qualify include Ryo Ishikawa (No. 51), Ben Crane (No. 54), Ernie Els enters the 2012 season without any assurances of playing in the Masters.

B2TUESDAY, DECEMBER20, 2011CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Associated PressPittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace (17) runs after a reception as San Francisco 49ers safety Reggie Smith (30) dives during the first quarter Monday in San Francisco. Power outages on two separate occasions delayed the game over 40 minutes. At press time, the 49ers led the Steelers 13-3 in the third quarter. Clash of the 10-win teams Saban, Tide back to practice UF swamps foe Gators saddle MVSU with 82-54 loss Associated PressGAINESVILLE The toughest part of Mississippi Valley States schedule is over. The Southwestern Athletic Conference will seem easy by comparison. Cor-J Cox scored 16 points, Terrence Joyner added 14 and Mississippi Valley State ended one of the toughest non-conference slates in the country with an 82-54 loss at No. 11 Florida on Monday night. All I ask my kids to do is fight and continue to get better because its almost a nowin situation, MVSU coach Sean Woods said. The No. 1 team in the country couldnt handle this schedule and go out unscathed. We know what we are in for and we just have to keep battling and stay together because our main focus is winning the conference championship. The Delta Devils (1-9) played 10 games away from home, including eight against teams from power conferences. They lost by double digits to Notre Dame, DePaul, North Carolina, Arkansas, Northwestern and Mississippi. So a lopsided affair at Florida (9-2) was somewhat expected. MVSU earned $75,000 for playing in Gainesville, money that helps sustain the program. Theyve got to do it to keep their program afloat, financially, facilities, scholarships, all those things, said Florida coach Billy Donovan, who was a graduate assistant at Kentucky when Woods played there. Hes put into a situation that he has to do that. I think what happens sometimes is your players can get beaten down, where its on the road every single day against a BCS-type program. ... Theyve played everybody, but they have to do that. Seans trying to make the best of it. When youre playing a schedule like that, its very, very easy for your team to come in with a defeated attitude and a defeated mentality. The Delta Devils were out of this one early. Florida made its first eight shots, opened up a 20point lead midway through the first half and did anything it wanted. Erving Walker finished with 19 points and was one of five starters in double figures. Kenny Boynton (16), Bradley Beal (13), Patric Young (12) and Erik Murphy (11) also scored in double digits for the Gators (9-2), who extended their home winning streak to 11. The game provided a bit of a break for Florida, which was coming off a big win over Texas A&M two nights earlier and is getting ready for in-state rival Florida State in three days. Nonetheless, Donovan used last years home loss to Jacksonville a Monday game that came on a short turnaround as motivation. Were in the same exact situation, Donovan said. Is history going to repeat itself or are you guys going to change that? I said, The beauty of it is this game hasnt been played and you have control of how we come out and play. And I give those guys credit. They got themselves ready to play and I thought we came out with really good energy to start the game.No. 5 UNC 99, Nicholls State 49CHAPEL HILL, N.C. Dexter Strickland scored 14 points to help No. 5 North Carolina beat Nicholls State 99-49 on Monday night. Freshman James Michael McAdoo added a season-high 14 off the bench for the Tar Heels (10-2), who dominated the undersized and overmatched Colonels for their fourth straight victory. North Carolina had a miserable shooting start and missed a bunch of free throws, but the Tar Heels snatched away every loose rebound to get plenty of extra looks. They finished with a 72-35 advantage, including 31 on the offensive glass that led to 36 second-chance points.No. 7 Duke 90, UNC Greensboro 63DURHAM, N.C. Freshman Quinn Cook scored all of his season-high 14 points in the second half as Duke routed UNC Greensboro. Mason Plumlee had 15 points and 13 rebounds and Austin Rivers added 14 points for the Blue Devils (10-1). They shot 54 percent from the field, shook off a sluggish start and overcame 18 turnovers to win their third straight since the onesided loss at No. 2 Ohio State. Kyle Randall scored 12 points but the Spartans (2-10) shot just 34.5 percent in the second half in losing their seventh straight. The last two have come under interim coach Wes Miller, a former North Carolina guard who took over last week.No. 17 Indiana 107, Howard 50BLOOMINGTON, Ind. Jordan Hulls scored 16 points and five of his teammates also reached double figures as Indiana celebrated its 500th appearance in The Associated Press Top 25 with a rout of Howard University. The Hoosiers (11-0) shot 67.3 percent from the field, hit 11 3-pointers and forced 19 turnovers. Indiana fell eight points short of the school record for largest victory margin. The Hoosiers are 11-0 for the first time since the 1975-76 squad went 32-0 and became the last Division I mens team to complete an undefeated season.No. 19 Michigan St. 89, UMKC 54EAST LANSING, Mich. Branden Dawson got off to a great start in the first few minutes and scored a career-high 16 points to lead No. 19 Michigan State past UMKC 89-54 on Monday night. Dawson had eight quick points and finished 8 for 12 from the field for the Spartans (10-2), who have won 10 straight. Brandon Wood also had 16 points, including 3-for-3 shooting from 3-point range, as Michigan State grabbed a 16-2 lead and never led by fewer than 10 points again. Draymond Green added 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Spartans, his sixth double-double this season, while Adreian Payne had 11 points. Associated PressFloridas Erving Walker (11) shoots a three-pointer during the second half Monday against Mississippi Valley State in Gainesville. Florida defeated Mississippi Valley State 82-54 as Walker scored a game-high 19 points. Walkers 18 lifts Bobcats by Hawks Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Kemba Walker opened his NBA career with a solid performance, shaking off a slow start to score a game-high 18 points including the goahead layup to lift the Bobcats to a 79-77 win over the Hawks in the preseason opener for both teams. After missing eight of his first 10 shots, including a dunk on a fastbreak, Walker made a 17-footer and a driving layup over two defenders in the closing 90 seconds. He used his quickness to draw fouls in the lane and shot 9 for 11 from the line. Josh Smith and Al Horford each scored 11 points to lead the Hawks. The Bobcats got a strong effort from Boris Diaw, making his first start at center since the departure of Kwame Brown. Playing well away from the basket, Diaw shot 5 for 8 from the field and finished with 12 points.Nuggets agree to 5year deal with AfflaloDENVER The Denver Nuggets have agreed to a five-year deal with restricted free agent Arron Afflalo. The Denver Post first reported Monday night the guard had agreed to a contract that could be worth up to $43 million. Nuggets coach George Karl was preaching the importance of bringing back Afflalo, the player he considered the glue guy of the team. Afflalo averaged 12.6 points last season and took on a bigger leadership role once Denver dealt Carmelo Anthony to the New York Knicks last February. The team went 18-7 the rest of the way to make the playoffs. Associated PressDallas Stars right winger Michael Ryder (73) skates with the puck during the first period Monday against the Anaheim Ducks in Dallas. The Stars won 5-3. Stars clips Ducks Associated PressDALLAS Michael Ryder scored the go-ahead goal at 6:42 of the third period after Dallas wasted a three-goal lead, and the Stars went on to 5-3 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night. With the game even at 3, Ryder skated up the middle and converted Loui Erikssons setup for Ryders 11th of the season. Eric Nystrom added an insurance goal for Dallas at 14:19 of the third.Bruins 3, Canadiens 2BOSTON David Krejci scored off his skate to break a second-period tie, and Tim Thomas stopped 33 shots to lead Boston to its fifth consecutive win. Benoit Pouliot and Brad Marchand also scored for the Bruins, who have won 19 of 22 since losing back-to-back games to Montreal at the end of October.Kings 3, Maple Leafs 2, SOTORONTO Dustin Brown scored the only goal of a shootout Monday and the Los Angeles Kings wrapped up a bizarre road trip. Alabama eyes title game vs. SEC foe LSU Associated PressTUSCALOOSA, Ala. Nick Saban is a busy, busy man. No. 2 Alabamas coach celebrated his anniversary Sunday and has the birthdays of his wife and two kids all in December, not to mention Christmas. Lets see. What else? Oh yeah, he has to find an offensive coordinator and prepare for the Jan. 9 BCS championship game with No. 1 LSU in the Louisiana Superdome. Saban and the Crimson Tide returned to the practice field indoors, of course Monday. Its all coming up at once, he said. Monday was also the first chance for departing offensive coordinator Jim McElwain to meet with the team since taking the head coaching job at Colorado State last week. Hell be with the Tide (11-1) through the title game. We love Coach McElwain and were really sad to see him go, left tackle Barrett Jones said. We had kind of a moment with him. We clapped for him. Were going to really miss him. Saban said McElwains double duty wont affect preparation and that he did the same thing for several regular season games and two playoff outings when he was the Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator and took over at Michigan State. Hes done a great job here for us, in a lot of different ways, Saban said. I think the players are very happy for him. I think hes the kind of guy that has a lot of pride in what he does and I dont think theres going to be any issues or problems in his commitment to what were doing for our team and this game. As for finding a replacement, Saban said theres no process yet. We do our due diligence and research, but our focus is on this game right now, he said. Well kind of do that a little bit at a time. I dont think theres any hurry. I definitely feel like we want to get the best possible guy, and that takes time. I dont think you can recruit, get ready for a game, practice for a game and try to be interviewing people at the same time. Somethings going to get sort of left out. The Tide will practice in Tuscaloosa through Friday and then break for Christmas until midweek. Saban said all the players who were nursing injuries late in the season including safety Mark Barron are healthy and practicing after a three-week layoff. Saban said its a return to fundamentals similar to the first day of preseason camp. Since theyre preparing for a game indoors, they dont have to brave the wind and chilly weather.

Chargers pound road-weary Ravens, 34-14 Associated PressSAN DIEGO It took the San Diego Chargers until their 14th game to beat a team that brought a winning record into the contest. That team Sunday night was no less than the playoff-bound Baltimore Ravens, who floundered on offense, didnt look at all tough on defense and were beaten 34-14. Philip Rivers threw for one score and reached the 4,000-yard mark for the fourth straight season, Ryan Mathews ran for two scores and hit 1,000 yards rushing, and the Chargers won their third straight game to keep their playoff hopes alive. The one thing that stays true in all the scenarios is, we have to win our next two games, Rivers said. Lets just worry about us. If its not enough on Jan. 1, its not enough. But were going to go down fighting. The Chargers (7-7) are tied with Oakland for second in the AFC West, a game behind Denver with two to play. Denver and Oakland both lost Sunday. The Chargers finish with road games against Detroit and the Raiders. The Ravens (10-4) had their fourgame winning streak snapped, but clinched a playoff berth earlier in the day thanks to losses by the New York Jets, Oakland and Tennessee. Its a reality check, said Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs, who was anything but the disruptive force that he has been in accumulating a career-high 13 sacks this season. You dont show up to play in a game like this, youre going to get your (butt) whupped. Championship teams get on the road and keep playing they peak they dont take a step back. Even though Ray Lewis was back with the Ravens after a four-game injury layoff, Baltimore only had two punishing hits on Rivers. Rivers was dominating, completing 17 of 23 passes for 270 yards to lead the Chargers to scores on six of their first seven possessions. He didnt throw an interception, and the only sack the Ravens got was wiped out on a personal foul against Suggs. It was good to win a big game like this at home against a good team, Rivers said. It was a rough six-game stretch, but we hung tight together and fought our way back to .500 with two to play and were still alive. swimming for Tufts College.

Meyer expects high hopes OSU coach wants to lead Buckeyes to top Associated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio Urban Meyer came into the Ohio State job with his eyes wide open about what Buckeyes fans demand from their new coach. Win it all, he said of the expectations. Hes done that twice, capturing two national championships at Florida before coming to Ohio State on Nov. 28 to take over a bedraggled program hit by suspensions, NCAA investigations and major violations that could lead to severe penalties. Speaking to reporters on Monday, he said hes not nave about the size and scope of the program he now leads. This is a monster. Ohio State is a monster. I just came from a monster, he said. I get that. Whats the expectation level? Its real clear. It was the same at the other place. Theres about five of them (schools) that thats what the expectations are. But as a coach you have to keep it in centerfield. You cant worry about left field or right field. Meyer twice resigned at Florida due to health reasons, returning almost immediately after the first announcement and then sitting out a year before taking the Ohio State job. He said he has learned that he must not micromanage every aspect of the football program. He knows there will come times when the stress and the pressure will mount. Its when you hit the speed bumps, he said. Obviously, we havent hit any speed bumps yet. The speed bumps are losses or other things that show up in your program that youre not real proud of. Thats going to happen. How I handle those situations is going to be key. Im in a much better place now. And it hasnt happen yet. Since his hiring, Meyer has spent most of his time recruiting. He has obtained a couple of verbal commitments from acclaimed players who were afraid of impending NCAA sanctions that Ohio State could receive any day now. The school has already vacated the 2010 season, repaid its share of Big Ten bowl money from last year, offered to go on NCAA probation and to give up five scholarships over the next three seasons. Most of the headlines emanating from Columbus revolved around other losses. Successful head coach Jim Tressel admitted in March that for months he was aware that some of his players had most likely taken cash and tattoos from the subject of a federal drug probe. Yet he didnt tell his superiors or the NCAA, and played the players anyway. After weeks of pressure, he was forced to resign on May 30. Star quarterback Terrelle Pryor, one of several players suspended for their role in the tattoo-related violations, jumped to the NFL. Meyer said he has received no assurances about additional penalties for the football program. He does know that hes willing to forgive what happened. I trust that what happened here was a series of legitimate mistakes, he said. I dont want to get into it now, but they were mistakes. Were they willful, intentful, violations? I dont believe that. I know the people who were here. I know them very well. I know what this place stands for. Ill fight that, even though I wasnt here. Luke Fickell took over on an interim basis and coached the Buckeyes to a 6-6 record. In an odd coincidence, Meyers new employer plays his old employer in the Gator Bowl on Jan. 2. He said he hasnt been keeping a close eye on the Buckeyes in bowl practice and may not even watch the game against Florida because of how he feels about both schools. Fickell, who has interviewed for the vacant Pittsburgh job, has been offered a spot on Meyers defensive staff. So has another holdover, cornerbacks coach Taver Johnson. Stan Drayton, who coached wide receivers last season, will shift to running backs in 2012. Meyer hired Iowa State assistant Tom Herman as his quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator. He said hes still deciding on other spots on the staff.

Paul McCartney has new albumNEW YORK Paul McCartney is releasing an album of standards plus two new songs of his own. The former Beatle announced Monday his new disc will be out Feb. 7. It doesnt have a title yet. Hes already streaming one song, My Valentine, on his website. McCartney says he and John Lennon were inspired in their own writing by some of the standards. Some of them he first heard when his father performed them at home on piano. Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder make appearances on the disc, which was recorded with Diana Krall and her band.Singer wants to gain more weightNEW YORK Most New Year resolutions include dieting. Not for Jessie J. The British singer says her goal for 2012 is to gain more weight. Jessie J says shes been working hard this year and its important to know when you need to gain weight, or when you need to lose weight and be healthy. The 23-year-old is known for her slim figure and skin-tight outfits. She released her debut CD Who We Are earlier this year. Its double platinum in the United Kingdom, where she has four Top 10 hits, including the No. 1 tune Price Tag. That song has reached the Top 40 in America.

A judge has signed off on a deal transferring ownership of Tony Packos Inc. to a private restaurant group in Toledo. The decision announced Monday comes days after the founders grandson was charged with stealing from the family business, where hes poised to play a major role in the new ownership. An attorney for the new owners says the accusations wont affect their plan. Actor Jamie Farr made Packos famous in the 1970s when he portrayed a homesick U.S. soldier in the Korean War who longed for their hot dogs. Associated PressSALT LAKE CITY Reality TV stars Kody Brown and his four wives say they just want one thing: to be left alone. As authorities investigate them for bigamy, the TLC Sister Wives family is asking a federal judge to overturn part of Utahs bigamy law because it bans them from living together and criminalizes sexual relationships between unmarried consenting adults. What they are asking for is the right to structure their own lives, their own family, according to their faith and their beliefs, said Jonathan Turley, their attorney, adding the lawsuit is about privacy not polygamy. The case in federal court in Utah, however, could open up the possibility that a way of life for tens of thousands of self-described Mormon fundamentalists could be decriminalized. While all states outlaw bigamy, some like Utah have laws that both prohibit having more than one marriage license at a time and ban adults from living together and having a sexual relationship. The latter provision could include same-sex couples, unmarried heterosexual couples and those, like the Browns, who do not have licenses but have created within their homes a marriage-like relationship. Turley, a noted constitutional expert, argued, under previous U.S. Supreme Court rulings, such as one that struck down Texas sodomy law, private intimate relationships between consenting adults are constitutionally protected. The lawsuit doesnt aim to challenge Utahs right to refuse to recognize plural marriage, nor are the Browns seeking multiple marriage licenses, Turley said. The display of the Brown familys polygamous lifestyle on cable television drew the interest of Utah prosecutors. The Browns are members of the Apostolic United Bretheran and practice polygamy as part of their religious beliefs. Polygamy is the religious or cultural practice of a person having more than one spouse, which is defined as bigamy under law. Experts say it is a widely practiced, crosscultural family structure found on every continent and in every major religion. The family Kody, Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn, plus 17 children fled Utah for the Las Vegas suburbs in January after authorities launched a bigamy investigation. No charges have been filed. Utah state attorneys say a bigamy prosecution isnt likely and the lawsuit should be dismissed. And while authorities continue their investigation, prosecutors say, the probe isnt limited to bigamy. They have not provided anymore details. Last week, U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups heard arguments over whether the Browns have standing to continue the case, a decision based in part on whether the family has been harmed by the Utah law. Waddoups will decide later whether to dismiss it altogether or set a trial date. Utahs statehood was granted in the 1890s under the condition that plural marriage which was thenopenly practiced by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints would be banned in the state constitution. In the U.S., bigamy has been illegal under federal law since the 1860s.Sister Wives family challenging Utah law Birthday: In the next year, refrain from limiting your hopes and expectations. If youre prepared to work hard and do what needs to be done, your resolve and commitment will be enough to make it happen. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Just because youre at a boisterous event doesnt mean you cant command the type of attention that youd like to receive. Youll find that whispering will have more impact than shouting. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If there is someone you know who could use a little help, you should yield to your charitable inclinations and pitch in. Your good deed will produce a huge and unexpected harvest. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Trust your instincts regarding the outcome of events, because theyre likely to be more accurate than your common sense. This time, things could be as good as you hope. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Speak up if you have something to say when a self-appointed person is fouling up the works. Youre the one wholl know how to handle it without making that individual look bad. Aries (March 21-April 19) Discovering others are talking about you is no cause for alarm, because what they are saying would actually flatter you. Dont jump to conclusions and be forced to make an apology later. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Dont hesitate to let it be known that you must study any proposal brought to you, especially if a contract is involved. Take all the time you need to read in between the lines. Gemini (May 21-June 20) There are some very strong indications that someone new could enter your life, if not today, then very soon. Itll be a person youll like very much and be thrilled to know. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Getting involved in something creative in which youll be using your hands as well as your mind will bring you much gratification. Dont hesitate to take on something new and different. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Dont be bashful about complimenting someone whom youve just met in front of others, and do let this person know how much you enjoy his or her company. She or he will be flattered. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Put your artistic talents to work during your spare time and beautify your surroundings instead of sitting around on the couch. The results will make you feel great. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Dont turn down any invitation that gives you a chance to mix and meet with new, fun people. The more contacts you make, the more chances youll have of meeting a truly nice friend. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Although they may come in increments, youll have excellent chances for producing long-range benefits for yourself and others, starting now.

Thats how she arrived at the Grammys in February, encased in a large, translucent pod carried by scantily clad dancers. When she hatched onstage, she effectively gave birth to Born This Way, performing the eponymous lead single of her second studio album and anthem to self-acceptance. In 2011, the album would carry her around the world, where she rarely went unnoticed. After a year of extravagant globe-trotting and relentless advocacy of tolerance, Lady Gaga has been voted Entertainer of the Year by members of The Associated Press. There were 135 ballots submitted by U.S. news organizations that make up the APs membership. Editors and broadcasters were asked to cast their ballots for who had the most influence on entertainment and culture in 2011. I am humbled and honored to be named Entertainer of The Year by The Associated Press, Lady Gaga said in a statement Monday signed Mother Monster. My deepest gratitude to the broadcasters and journalists whove supported me over the years, and in turn, are now supporting the loves of my life: my fans. Thank you for believing in Born This Way. May you continue to brave the dreams of Showbiz. Lady Gaga narrowly edged out the late Apple founder Steve Jobs by three votes. Many others received numerous votes, including Taylor Swift, Charlie Sheen, Adele and the cast of Harry Potter. Previous winners of the AP Entertainer of the Year include Betty White, Swift, Tina Fey and Stephen Colbert. But it was Lady Gaga whose eminence in 2011 stood out most to voters. While accepting the best pop vocal album Grammy for her previous disc, The Fame Monster, earlier this year, she said stardom was an adjustment for her. When I wrote Born This Way, I imagined (Whitney Houston) was singing it because I wasnt secure enough in myself to imagine I was a superstar, she said. When the album was released in May, 1.1 million copies sold in the first week, partly aided by a dramatic discount from Amazon, which sold it for 99 cents. But it was an industry-shattering moment because an extraordinary 60 percent of sales in the first week were digital downloads.

Coffee, the wakeup call for millions of Americans every day, may serve more than one purpose, especially for women. A recent study found that it may also help women lower their risk of endometrial cancer, cancer of the lining of the uterus. Women in a very large study who drank more than four cups of coffee a day had a 25 percent lower risk of uterine cancer. Dr. C. Joseph BennettAMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY Can coffee prevent uterine cancer? See BENNETT/ Page C4 Dr. Sunil GandhiCANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Iron out fatigue Fatigue is a very common problem. There are many different reasons for fatigue. One of the most common reasons is iron deficiency or lack of iron. Iron is an essential component of making a protein called hemoglobin. This protein is inside red blood cells, which transport oxygen from the lungs throughout the body. So it makes sense that if hemoglobin is low, less oxygen is transported all over the body, and that would make one feel tired. Recent studies have shown many people who have normal hemoglobin also feel fatigued when their iron level is low. Now Swiss investigators have conducted a randomized, double-blind, See GANDHI/ Page C4 Iam sure we are all familiar with the concept of air pollution as it relates to the outside environment coal plants that produce CO2 and ash, factories that spew out smoke, car exhaust in major cities but Ill bet most of us dont think about the indoor environment in our homes as being a potential problem. This is particularly true in the colder months when windows are closed and the heat is turned on, as higher temperature and varying humidity levels can increase the concentration of pollutants found normally in the home. Common things found in the home include dust, tobacco products, building materials and furnishings that end up deteriorating and exposing us to asbestos, formaldehyde, and, living in Florida, of course, we always have the formidable molds potentially trapped in the house. Many of our homes are sprayed with chemicals for pests, and that includes treatments inside that can linger and Tis the season ... for indoor pollution As you can imagine, I get the same questions asked many times over. I thought Id end the year with a few tidbits of information and some data related to my most frequently asked questions. I hope these snippets will answer some of your questions also. I begin with a fact: You cannot predict how successful treatment will be by the way a person arrives at the door. This relates to courtmandated clients, or those consumed with anger about being sent to treatment. Our office loves resistant clients in fact, sometimes theyre the ones most ready for their lives to change. We dont separate treatment for alcohol use from other drug use. All drugs of abuse act on the same area of the brain, the ventral tegmental area (VTA), and trigger the same electrochemical responses no matter what the outward signs of use are. Brain research finds the same reprogramming of specific neurological areas regardless of the type of substance. The most effective format for addiction treatment is a group setting. When we use drugs, we are isolated within ourselves. Moving into recovery, we must do the opposite of what feels normal or comfortable.

Plenty of Americans are having to hold back this year as the lure of flashy ads, tempting bargains and family expectations clashes with the realities of the economy. Experts in consumer behavior say that situation can strain the brain. Scientists say we are, to some extent, wired for shopping. It seems to tap into circuits that spurred our ancestors to go out looking for food, says Brian Knutson, associate professor of psychology and neuroscience at Stanford University. Associated Press NEW YORK Chennel King, a nurse from Norwalk, Conn., went Christmas shopping the other day with a new holiday companion: a budget. Despite a tough economic situation her husband was laid off almost a year ago King didnt want to disappoint her five children. So she still went to a mall in suburban New Jersey, but with a limit of $200 per child. Plenty of Americans are having to hold back this year as the lure of flashy ads, tempting bargains and family expectations clashes with the realities of the economy. Experts in consumer behavior say that situation can strain the brain. Scientists say we are, to some extent, wired for shopping. It seems to tap into circuits that spurred our ancestors to go out looking for food, said Brian Knutson, an associate professor of psychology and neuroscience at Stanford University. We are built to forage, just like rats, just like dogs, Knutson said. So we have brain circuitry that compels us to go out there ... to get good stuff, even if we dont know what that good stuff is. Brain scanning in his lab shows deep brain circuitry called the nucleus accumbens goes to work when people are considering products and prices. When brain cells in that area release a chemical called dopamine, people are motivated to take action, he said. So the very prospect of shopping maybe brought on by ads and other marketing tools may arouse that circuitry and put us in a mood to hit the stores, and then to keep on shopping, he said. You feel good ... Its exciting, Knutson said. Other circuitry reacts to excessively high prices and dampens the enthusiasm to buy, he said. The competing signals buy and dont-buy are passed to the front of the brain, in the prefrontal cortex, where a decision about whether to purchase something is apparently made, he said. But how does that decision get made when money is tight? Knutson said he hasnt studied that question. But he notes that yet another area of the brain, called the cingulate cortex, responds to conflicts like wanting to buy something that costs too much. So maybe it pitches in when a shopper feels restrained by a budget. King, the recent mall shopper, isnt sure how much she spent last year but it was a lot, with new bedroom sets, a camera for one daughter, a camcorder for one son, and four PlayStations. This year, she turned down the requests of her oldest two for an iPad. But On a tight budget? Better keep a close watch on your brain See BRAIN/ Page C8

I was told that only a root canal could fix this. Of course root canals are extremely expensive. Why cant they just inject antibiotics into the root to fix this? There must be an alternative to an expensive procedure such as a root canal. I am experiencing slight pain when food touches the area. Please give me an alternative. A root canal will cost about $1,800 with insurance. A: This is a good question, one I get regularly in this column and at the office. In most cases arising in the body you are prescribed antibiotics for an infection and the infection is resolved. This happens because the antibiotics kill the bacteria and the bodys natural defense mechanisms get a chance to help things along. What you really have is an infection in the bone of the jaw. This infection is the result of bacteria invading the nerve or pulp of the tooth, which has a direct communication with the bone of the jaw. The source of the infection is usually from decay but can be from a traumatic injury to the tooth as well. In either case the nerve of the tooth begins to die, thereby infecting the bone. The only way to heal an infection like this is to remove the source of the infection. In this case, the source is the nerve or pulp. The procedure to do this is commonly known as a root canal. There are times that a root canal alone does not do the job, in which case the patient needs an apicoectomy. An apicoectomy is a surgical procedure that removes the infection from the bone and seals the tooth from the infected area. The only alternative to this is removal of the tooth. If there is no intention to replace the tooth, removal is the least expensive solution. If, on the other hand, the patient wants the tooth replaced, a root canal and restoration may be more cost-effective. The fee of $1,800 with insurance seems expensive for a root canal. The fee quoted to you may be for a root canal, post and crown. You might want to check on this because there are certain times that a root canal and filling, with or without a post, can be done. These alternatives may be less costly and still help you save the tooth. I hope this has helped.Dr. Frank Vascimini is a Homosassa dentist. Send your questions to 4805 S.

A: Primarily because these over-the-counter products are unproven to help with weight loss and are potentially dangerous. In view of this, on Dec. 6, 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued seven warning letters to companies marketing over-thecounter (OTC) HCG products labeled as homeopathic for weight loss. Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone produced by the human placenta and found in the urine of pregnant women. HCG is FDA-approved as an injectable prescription drug for the treatment of some cases of female infertility and other medical conditions. The letters warn the companies that they are violating federal law by selling drugs that have not been approved, and by making unsupported claims for the substances. There are no FDA-approved HCG drug products for weight loss. The joint action is the first step in keeping the unproven and potentially unsafe products from being marketed online and in retail outlets as oral drops, pellets and sprays. The labeling for homeopathic HCG products states each product should be taken in conjunction with a very low-calorie diet. There is no substantial evidence HCG increases weight loss beyond that resulting from the recommended caloric restriction. Consumers on a very low-calorie diet are at increased risk for side effects including gallstone formation, electrolyte imbalance and heart arrhythmias. According to the warning letters, the companies have 15 days to notify the FDA of the steps they have taken to correct the violations cited. Failure to do so may result in legal action, including seizure and injunction or criminal prosecution. Consumers and health care professionals are encouraged to report adverse events (side effects) that may be related to the use of these products to MedWatch, the FDAs voluntary reporting program, by calling 800-FDA-1088, or electronically at www.fda.gov/ medwatch/report.htm.Richard P.

Were the first person and the last person we lie to and need an external source of accountability to keep us honest. Treatment programs use the powerful tool of group process as a primary way to accomplish individual treatment goals. Individual settings are considered if the client cant participate actively in a group due to language barriers, disability or another issue. The past standard was to work hard for the first 30 days of sobriety and then discharge the client into aftercare, believing the first month was the hardest and everything after that was supportive. Research now shows that it can take the brain 18 to 24 months to get to a pre-use state (two to three years for a meth user). In that time, the client struggles with a condition called PAWS (post-acute-withdrawal syndrome). Terry Gorski developed the theory and interventions based on these concepts. His work outlines strategies to traverse the minefield of PAWS symptoms. Clients struggle with imbalanced moods, lack of resilience and memory/ concentration deficits. Relapse is a constant shadow overlaying recovery for clients, and often loved ones dont understand the profound impairment a recovering addict can experience. The most lethal drug is, in fact, alcohol. Sedative withdrawal (the most common now are alcohol and benzodiazepines) causes more deaths by far than any other class of drugs. Recent national statistics reveal alcohol is present in almost 50 percent of car accidents, 40 percent of emergency-room visits and is a leading cause of job absenteeism. To bust a myth: There are withdrawal symptoms from marijuana. Coping mechanisms for stress are erased by the cloud of use. People in early weed recovery often experience growing agitation, anxious/panicky mood and outbursts from minimal provocation. Memory, concentration, problem-solving and decision-making abilities are greatly impacted with chronic use. Recovering smokers are often unable to identify likes and dislikes, personal assetsand strengths. The cloud not only erases motivation and bad vibes, it also erases ones sense of self. I know many people suffer during the holidays, and I hold in prayer everyone who reads my column. For each of you who is struggling, I send thoughts of compassion and peace. I wish you all a safe, sane and sober holiday!Yvonne Hess is a licensed marriage and family therapist and a certified addictions professional with an international certification as an alcohol and drug counselor who works for the Citrus County Health Departments Phoenix Program.

For those of you who follow my weekly articles, you realize a study with more than 67,000 participants is indeed a large one. And to make this study even more impressive, the researchers have followed the members of this study for 26 years. Within this group, researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health found 672 cases of uterine cancer. When they questioned the members of the study regarding coffee intake, they found that women who drank four cups of coffee or more every day had a 25 percent lower risk of developing uterine cancer compared to those who drank less than one cup of coffee a day. Now, this is valuable information, but why does coffee seem to lower the risk of uterine cancer? Coffee may lower risk by affecting the way the female hormone estrogen and the hormone insulin work in the body. We have known for decades that hormones play a role in many different cancers, and that hormone balance plays a part in the development of most uterine cancers. Women who are obese have a much higher risk of developing uterine cancer secondary to the fact that having more fat tissue also affects hormones. This excessive fat can increase a womans estrogen levels, which increases her uterine cancer risk. In comparison with women who maintain a healthy weight, endometrial cancer is twice as common in overweight women, and more than three times as common in obese women. In this well-run and -documented study, obese women were even more likely than average-weight women to benefit from drinking a lot of coffee, probably due to the fact that average-weight women have a lower production of estrogen. However, the study highlights a very important fact: Getting more exercise and maintaining a normal body weight are probably still the most important ways to lower your risk of uterine cancer. And unfortunately, if you want the benefit from coffee, you better drink it black. The addition of sugar and cream to coffee is likely to wipe out any benefit from drinking it because of the fat and calories associated with making it taste a little better. Unfortunately, it is not clear whether the caffeine or other substances found in coffee might be responsible for the study findings. The researchers did not find any lowered uterine cancer risk in those participants who regularly drank caffeinated tea. They also found no significant link with decaffeinated coffee, but, as one would expect, very few women in the study drank decaf, so the results were inconclusive due to the fact that too few respondents fell into this category. Now, should we all be drinking more coffee? Unfortunately, more studies are needed to pinpoint the true role of coffee in the risk factors for uterine cancer. If you like coffee, discuss this with your doctor, and if cleared, drink away, and hopefully your risk of uterine cancer will decrease.Dr. Bennett is a board-certified radiation oncologist, member of the Citrus County Unit and Florida Division Board of Directors of the American Cancer Society.

This was done to determine the efficacy of administering intravenous (IV) iron to non-anemic patients with fatigue and low iron levels as measured by a blood test called ferritin. In such a trial, patients are given either placebo or the iron and neither the patient nor the doctor knows who is getting what. Researchers keep it secret and it is only decoded after the study is complete. A total of 90 postmenopausal women meeting these criteria received either four 200-milligram infusions of iron sucrose or placebo during a two-week period. Such iron infusions are commonly given in our office as an outpatient procedure, but we usually give it only to patients with anemia. The patients who received iron had significantly more improvement in fatigue compared to those who received placebo. The study was published in the journal Blood in September 2011. In this issue of the journal, Dr. Krayenbhl, et al, provide strong evidence that women complaining of fatigue who were not anemic but who had reduced or absent iron stores were symptomatically improved after receiving parenteral iron. Given the number of women who are iron-deficient, the findings could find broad application, but work needs to be done to refine the approach to this common problem. We need to know whether oral iron would do the same job or not. In my practice, I have found intravenous iron many times works faster and better than oral iron. Nausea, constipation or pain in the abdomen are common symptoms of iron pills, but not with iron taken intravenously. Iron is essential for various enzymes inside cells and nuclei, and those enzymes may be affected with low iron. This happens even with normal hemoglobin or lack of anemia. This is supposed to be the reason to feel tired or fatigued with low iron. In short, if you are feeling fatigued, consider asking your doctor to check your iron level. If iron is low, you should consider intravenous iron to reduce your fatigue.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Indoor pollution can be something experienced immediately or there can be delayed effects that show up years later. Simple things like irritation of the eyes, ears, nose and throat, headaches, dizziness, fatigue are usually the most common immediate side effects. Long-term effects usually manifest themselves in the lungs as asthma, bronchitis, chronic cough and other respiratory ailments. The severity of your response sometimes depends on age and pre-existing medical conditions can also be a factor, such as asthma or emphysema. It is important to pay attention to how your symptoms start, whether they recur and how severe they are, as you may find that there is a particular connection with a certain environment such as the home, workplace or places where you gather and socialize and spend a significant amount of time. There are some simple things you can do that will help greatly and could ensure you dont have any longlasting problems from indoor pollution, the first of which is controlling pollution. In other words, what is the source? Is it too high a heat, too dry, too humid? Is there smoking going on in the house? Are there lots of chemical sprays used as cleaners, pesticides, etc.? Controlling the actual source can be greatly beneficial. Secondly, ventilation is very important. Opening up the house periodically to outside fresh air is very helpful. Most of our heating and cooling systems are closed and do not allow for fresh air to be incorporated into the system. Most homes are fitted with bathroom and/or kitchen fans that exhaust odors and contaminants. During the especially colder months and high fuel charges, people are starting to seek alternative methods, including small kerosene heaters used in the home or wood-burning stoves. Those are potential problems. Also in the colder months, we tend to do things indoors more so than outdoors, and this includes hobby activities which might produce a problem such as soldering, welding, building models and using glues that have fumes or sanding wood projects, to name a few. You are better off bundling up a little bit more and working outside if possible. There are inexpensive and expensive examples of air cleaning that can be applied to the heating and cooling system of your home. Doing something is better than nothing. However, air cleaners are not going to remove fumes, but they are effective against general household entities such as dust, dust mites, molds. Any effort that you do will be rewarded.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River. Call him at 352-795-0011 or visit CrystalCommunity ENT.com.

Call Jim at 352-621-3588. The Fifties Broadway and Ballads concert was a standingroom-only event for the Shepherd of the Hills Light Shine 2011 series for the fall and winter season. The program spanned the classic favorites from Cole Porter, Leonard Bernstein, Rogers and Hammerstein to the Righteous Brothers Unchained Melody. The enrichment program is a gift to the community in its fifth year of presentations, cosponsored by the Citrus County Chronicle. Other season programs have included One Nation Under God, featuring Harry S. Coverston, Ph.D., J.D., funded by the Florida Humanities Council, the Marion Civic Chorales Lords and Dukes Concert, and The Joy of Christmas, featuring Bill Kinley, organist, and Stacey Adams, soloist. A fitting opening, Thats Entertainment (1952), from The Band Wagon, set the mood for a festive afternoon. From West Side Story (1957), Sue Kopler sang Somethings Coming and Lowell Smith brought us One Hand, One Heart. Karen returned with Somewhere, and Tonight was performed by Mary Mahoney. Cole Porter selections from the 1950 production of Out of This World, the 1956 hit High Society and 1953s Can-Can included From This Moment On, a duet with Kopler and Smith. They encored with True Love, followed by Mary Mahoneys spirited rendition of Its All Right With Me. The Dunnellon Singers are an allvolunteer group of church music directors and choir members who love to perform classical music. It was a nostalgic trip down memory lane as Kopler performed a flawless Till There Was You, with unhurried phrasing from the 1950 production of The Music Man, followed by a spirited Ethel Merman-style version of Just in Time from the 1956 Bells Are Ringing. Admitting the groups difficulty in deciding which of the array of s songs to include, the group continued with the 1950s Kismet hit and This is My Beloved. The depth of this presentation was poetry in motion with Lowell Smith. Mary Mahoneys Ive Never Been In Love Before, from the 1950 Guys and Dolls Broadway production, was a song seemingly made just for Mary Mahoneys voice. Lowells emotionally charged rendition of I Talk to the Trees, from 1951s Paint Your Wagon, kept us in awe of the range of the talented performers. The groups antics brought giggles from the delighted audience as the group of singers brought down the house with the Chordettes 1958 Lollipop with one singers huge lollipop and anothers popping sound effect. It was a chance for the group to perform a delightful round. It was such a joy to be able to understand all of the lyrics and to enjoy the music at a sound level that was comfortable to our ears. The group performs four times each year and an additional four presentations are in the planning stages. Following a freewill offering, the second act began with a duet of Sincerely, a Maguire Sisters 1954 hit, performed by Mahoney and Kopler, and All I Have to do is Dream by Kopler and Smith, a 1958 hit for the Everly Brothers. We pictured Charlie Chaplin overcoming challenges and troubling circumstances with the Smith rendition of Chaplins Smile. A perky Kopler brought us Connie Francis Lipstick on Your Collar, a 1959 hit. In torch-singer flair, Mahoney sang Johnny Mathis Chances Are (1957), then Lowell brought us Misty, an Erroll Garner 1954 hit. Thunderous applause accompanied Koplers Unchained Melody (1955) as memories continued to flow throughout the show. Lingering in the s scattered our cares away as the groups final Rogers and Hammerstein set concluded the concert with Lowells Ive Grown Accustomed to Her Face from My Fair Lady (1956), I Enjoy Being a Girl (1958), from Flower Drum Song, by Kopler, King and I (1951) selections with Lowells voice that was created for love songs as he sang I Have Dreamed, Karens Something Wonderful, and Mahoneys Hello Young Lovers. Culminating an astounding s program of memorable songs with The Sound of Music (1959), Climb Every Mountain, gave us pause in the full acknowledgement of the hope of peace and goodwill throughout our world. It was exemplified that special afternoon with the dedication that the Dunnellon Singers have to enhance the art of musical performance for the community. Heartfelt thanks to the Dunnellon Singers, Shepherd of the Hills Episcopal Church, the Florida Humanities Council and the sponsorship of the Citrus County Chronicle, and Harry Hersheys piano artistry accompaniment.Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community.

C6TUESDAY, DECEMBER20, 2011CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Bjork, a singer-songwriter from Iceland, said: I sometimes fall into the trap of doing what I think I should be doing, rather than what I want to be doing. Bridge students can be like that. They look for the trap in a prepared deal, trying to work out what they believe they should be doing, rather than what they would do away from the classroom. When a student does what he thinks the teacher wants him to do, often he will go down in a contract he normally would have made. But occasionally the deal will contain a trap like this one. How should South play in three no-trump after West leads the heart six? When you hold 4-4 in the minors and minimum count, your better opening bid is one diamond. South passed on the second round to tell partner he held a weak hand without spade support. Then North had a close decision. He might have shut his eyes and blasted into three no-trump. However, being a scientist by nature, he doubled, saying that he had too many points to pass but no clearcut bid available. South, with a heart stopper, suggested notrump. North was happy with that. Declarer starts with six top tricks (four spades and two hearts) and can establish three winners in clubs. Whats the problem? The spades are blocked. After playing off the queen and jack, South must be able to reach the dummy. And the only dummy entry is the heart ace. So declarer must take the first trick in his hand with the king. He cashes his two spade honors, then drives out the club ace and claims.

My wife loves sex. However, she will never initiate it or act seductively. If I dont initiate sex, it doesnt happen. We can go for weeks without it. Yet when we are intimate, she adores it. She frequently says, This is so great. I love sex. In addition, my wife never does anything that might provoke arousal, including kissing. No goodnight kiss, no kiss of greeting when weve been apart, no spooning in bed before falling asleep. Its like were roommates. Im not some unappreciative husband of an overworked wife. I do all the laundry, dishes, housecleaning, yard work, and home and car maintenance. I pay all the bills. We have identical jobs and work hours. Im in excellent shape, and she claims our sex is amazing. Many times, Ive explained that Im hurt that she doesnt find me sexually appealing. Weve argued about this for 30 years, and she always promises to change, but it never happens. Weve tried all kinds of marital aids and videos, but nothing helps. Every night, she watches TV, crawls into bed and goes to sleep. Am I wrong to think that a mutually rewarding, romantic, physical relationship needs to be more of a partnership? Is it wrong that I need to believe she is sexually attracted to me? Unhappy Husband Dear Unhappy: There could be different reasons for your wifes behavior. She may have some deepseated hang-ups about women behaving seductively or initiating sex. She may not be all that interested, but enjoys it once you get started. Or she may be putting on an Academy Award performance for your benefit. After 30 years, we are going to assume your wife is in menopause and whatever chance you may have had to interest her has diminished substantially. This has nothing to do with finding you sexually attractive. Her libido simply isnt up to it anymore. If she enjoys sex once you get started, please dont focus on who makes the first move. Dear Annie: I married Bob five years ago. He is 72, and I am 68. Bob is the most loving, kind and generous man I have ever met. The problem is that I love to dance. I could go dancing four nights a week. But Bob will only take me dancing on Saturday nights, and after two hours on the floor, hes out of gas and wants to go home. I could dance until midnight and then go out with friends for coffee. Id be happy to let him rest while I keep dancing, but my old dance partners wont ask me out on the floor now that Im married. I am so angry. What should I do? Jane in Ohio Dear Jane: Why are you so angry? You are married to a wonderful man who takes you dancing every week. It may not be as often as youd like, but its hardly deprivation. Would Bob mind if you went with friends instead? Would it bother him if you asked your old dance partners to squire you around? If those guys knew it was OK with your husband, they might be perfectly willing to step in so you could have a few more hours of fun while Bob takes a break. Find out. Dear Annie: This is for Adopted Child, who asked about contacting her biological family. If she doesnt get a quick response, its possibly because the family is going through some difficulties. Or maybe they need more time to digest being contacted by their biological sibling. If theres no response, I suggest the adoptee gently contact them again, perhaps in a year. Reaching out to ones biological family can be a positive, life-changing experience, but one should be prepared for all possible outcomes.

she didnt consider cutting out Christmas totally. And shes mindful to buy the same number of presents for each kid. You only live once, King said. If its something my kids really want, I try to get it at the lowest possible price. From what experts recommend about holding down spending, King was smart to set a budget ahead of time, but she probably made her task tougher by going to a mall. When youre surrounded by attractive goods and crowds of people buying them, natural human desires can trigger off intense cravings to buy, said George Loewenstein, a professor of economics and psychology at Carnegie Mellon University. Not spending when youre tempted to spend is exhausting and miserable, like not eating when youre hungry, he said. Trying to apply willpower should be your last resort, he said. Much better is to stay away from the mall in the first place, and it will be much easier to exert self-control. It might be preferable to shop on the Internet so youre not surrounded by buyers, although the convenience of online shopping holds its own temptations, he said. If you do go to a mall, commit yourself beforehand to a hard limit on spending, Loewenstein recommends. Generally, people tend to be a lot more tempted when there is some kind of uncertainty about whether youre going to get whatever it is youre tempted by, he said. A definite budget removes that uncertainty when a shopper spots something extra, and so its easier for the brain to say no, he said. But how to make that budget limit stick? The last thing you want to do is spend with a card, especially a credit card, or even a debit card, he said. It doesnt feel like spending. Much better to count out some cash and put it in an envelope. When the cash is gone, youre done shopping. Even before then, the act of forking out cash introduces the pain of paying, which can make a shopper more rational and less vulnerable to impulse purchases, he said. To Kathleen Vohs, an associate marketing professor at the University of Minnesota, Christmas shopping on tight money is a classic dilemma between Wants and Shoulds, between enjoying something now or holding back for a payoff later. If you dont give in now, your wallet will be fatter later, she said. Her tips for exerting self-control: Shop alone. Carry a list of things you want to buy, so you dont get drained psychologically by having to make a lot of choices in stores. And if youre trying to hold down spending, ease up on other demands for self-control like dieting. If youre trying to watch your waist and youre trying to watch your wallet ... its probably not a good recipe at being successful at both of those, she said. In fact, willpower to resist overspending can get depleted over hours of shopping as people face temptations, so that self-control and wise decision-making gradually break down, said psychologist Roy F. Baumeister of Florida State University. When it gets depleted, people will pay more money for the same products and buy more things on impulse that they dont really need, said Baumeister, co-author of the new book, Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength. Like Vohs, he recommends trying to limit the number of decisions or demands on self-control you face. And if thats not possible over the course of a shopping day, he said, try not to make expensive decisions at the end. But what do you do when youve decided to buy a $1,000 TV, but then you see another model for $1,500 that has more features? If you buy the less expensive one, wont you miss what you passed up for just $500 more? Thats the time to ask yourself, What else could I do with that $500? said Michael I. Norton of Harvard Business School. It really changes your mindset. If you think about using the money to vacation in Florida or invest in a college fund, that can help you avoid buying more expensive things, he said. One more tip to hold down Christmas spending comes from King, the mall shopper. Her gift list included her niece and goddaughter, but no grown-ups. The adults, she said, they have to wait till their birthdays.C8TUESDAY, DECEMBER20, 2011CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE HEALTH& LIFE Classifieds ClassifiedsClassifieds In Print and Online All The Time!

Main St. Inverness Fl 34450 BRAINContinued from Page C1 Special to the ChronicleTALLAHASSEE Floridas Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program recently announced the release of its annual report, which showcases the programs accomplishments and recommendations for positive change in Floridas long-term care facilities. The Ombudsman Programs success thrives on its volunteers who selflessly donate time and energy to advocate for Floridas 160,000 plus long-term care facility residents. The programs volunteers are trained to investigate complaints and perform administrative assessments in assisted living facilities, nursing homes and adultfamily care homes. Ombudsmen volunteers traveled over 365,400 miles and saved the State of Florida over one million dollars this past federal fiscal year in salaries and administrative costs for long-term care residents through hours of unpaid service, said Elder Affairs Secretary Charles T. Corley. In addition to money saved and mileage traveled by its volunteers, the annual report also showcases the programs accomplishments, including participation in the Governors Assisted Living Workgroup to promote improvement of care for residents living in long-term care facilities, the creation of new training materials and a redesign of the administrative assessment and visitation form. The new visitation form truly complies with the spirit of the Older Americans Act, creating questions that will enable our volunteers to listen and advocate for concerns and needs expressed by residents, said state Ombudsman Jim Crochet. The new training materials encourage self-study time for our volunteers, decreased classroom training and increased time spent in the field. We want to equip our volunteers with the best tools possible to become the most effective advocates for longterm care facility residents. With the release of this report, the program hopes to create dialogue between policymakers, long-term care facility residents, family members, caregivers and concerned citizens about recurring issues in the long-term care industry.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 20, 2011 YOUR SOURCE FOR ALL THINGS AUTOMOTIVEINSIDEAdvertiser Map..........................3 Ask the Doctor...........................3 Automotive Classifieds..............4 Chevy Colorado........................4 Classic Classics: 1979 Scout..............................3 Manufacturer photo: Building on the momentum of launching six all-new or completely redesigned vehicles for 2011, the Dodge brand is charging ahead in transmission technology. The 2012 Dodge Charger is now the first domestic sport sedan to feature an eight-speed automatic transmission delivering a best-in-class 31 miles per gallon (mpg) highway. New for 2012 Dodge Charger Gets Eight-Speed Transmission The name Charger has apt meaning for Dodge. This model leads the charge in the large car segment in many ways. For 2012, Dodge charges ahead with an eight-speed automatic transmission a first for the Chrysler Group automaker. The 2012 Charger sport sedan is the first domestic brand automobile to feature a state-of-the-art ZF eight-speed transmission. Eight gears are mostly found in premium-luxury import brands, but Dodge after launching an allnew version of the Charger in 2011 builds on its new-generation Charger momentum with transmission technology. Buyers of the 2012 model will also see some name changes to the Charger trims. Starting at $25,495, the Dodge Charger is available in SE, SXT, and R/T versions. Additionally, within the SXT and R/T trims there are boosted package levels call Plus, as well as Road & Track and Max for the R/T trim. The V-6 engine powers charger SE and SXT models. The R/T houses a powerful 370-horsepower, 5.7liter Hemi V-8 engine that is rated at 25 miles per gallon highway. Our tester was the Charger SXT Plus equipped with allwheel drive with a base price of $31,115. By the way, the standard configuration for the Charger is rearwheel-drive. Mated to the new eight-speed automatic, the 292-horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 engine has fuel economy ratings of 31 mpg highway and 19 mpg city. This is an improvement over the 2011s all-new Charger that was equipped with the fivespeed automatic, which had EPA returns of 18/27 mpg. We found shifting the new eight-speed gear selectors a little tricky. During our week behind the wheel there were many times we encountered wrong gear selection, as a result of a sensitive shifter that would fall into another gear. It was almost like operating a computer mouse you really had to be exact on hovering the point needle before clicking. New paddle shifters are standard on the SXT and SXT Plus Chargers that allow the driver to engage in a performance-oriented drive. Also for 2012 is an all-new fullcolor Electronic Vehicle Information Center in the instrumentation gauge that is brightly colorful in an eyepleasing manner. The AWD system on the Dodge Charger transitions from RWD to AWD with no driver intervention. The Charger has an active transfer case and front-axle disconnect system. When AWD is not required it is automatically disconnected from the front axle to help maximize fuel efficiency. Our tester, fitted with 19-inch all-season tires, featured this touringtuned AWD suspension and successfully the Dodge engineers get it right. Youd never know this nice-riding sedan was equipped with AWD. Its the addition of hydrobushings that enhance this world-class refinement. New for the 2012 Charger is a Blacktop Package that comes with a blacked out look, performancetuned suspension and a big infotainment system for what Dodge calls a sinister, street cred appearance. The Blacktop comes with Pitch Black paint on 20-inch wheels, the spilt crosshair grille. Even without a packaged sinister look, the Charger snarls with contained aggression with a fierce, muscular design. Dodge stays very current with the latest technology package offerings that keep drivers entertained and in touch. Uconnect Touch is upgraded for 2012 with the added features of hands-free texting with Bluetooth and Sirius XM Traffic. Uconnect Touch comes in 4.3and 8.4-inch touch screens. Standard safety devices include six airbags, reactive head restraints and electronic stability control. The Taurus is Fords smartest sedan, offering full-size sedan customers an unmatched array of comfort, convenience and driver-assistance technologies. Taurus offers a revised color palette for 2012. It adds Ginger Ale Metallic, an elegant new hue. Bringing enhanced rear visibility, Taurus now features standard integrated blind spot mirrors in the power-assisted sideview mirrors. The 2012 Taurus is powered by a 3.5-liter Duratec V6, providing 263 horsepower and 249 lb.-ft. of torque. Taurus continues to build on a legacy of safety, as the 2011 model earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick rating.Source: Ford Motor Co NEW ON WHEELSBY CONNIE KEANE,Motor Matters 2012 FORD TAURUS

It has had all the required scheduled maintenance and the fuel injectors have been cleaned. Ive been complaining for 18 months of low mileage (its worse now after my last oil change), a burning smell when I accelerate (like unburned gas), and a rotten egg odor when I drive on the highway not at lower speeds. I asked the dealer if it could be the catalytic converter or EGR valve. I was told no. I know Jeeps get low mileage but mine gets less than 9 miles a gallon. What should I do while the Jeep is still under warranty? Debbie Dear Debbie: Your Jeep at only 9 mpg is not even in the ballpark. You should be at 14-18 mpg. There are a few simple steps that need to be done. First you need to fill the tank, re-set the trip odometer and drive 150 miles, then go back to the same gas pump and fill the tank the same way. You need to divide the total miles driven into the gallons used. This will give you the actual miles per gallon. If the Jeep was only getting 9 mpg, then the check engine light should have illuminated and the oxygen sensors should have set a rich condition fault code. The rotten egg smell is not unusual emitting from the exhaust, as it is the catalytic converter cleaning the exhaust. Sometimes it will even smell worse when the temperature is hot and the vehicle has been driven on the highway. Dear Doctor: I bought my 2004 GMC Envoy new and have loved it. Did not have any out-of-the-ordinary problems until several weeks ago when the gauges did not work. I turned the ignition off-and-on several times and finally all came on. Then two weeks later the key fob failed. I called AAA and they thought it might be the battery. We bought a new battery that evening, as the current was four years old. Two days later, all the gauges stopped working. Whats going on? Mary Beth Dear Mary Beth: Batteries can last up to five years on average and should be checked after three years and then yearly for the next two years. Dash cluster failure on GM vehicles is a common failure and the cost average for repair is $350 for a rebuilt dash cluster. I work on a lot of vehicles six days a week and the GM line of these GMC SUVs has a good track record. However, your vehicle is sevenplus years and no matter what auto brand you own stuff goes wrong. Dear Doctor: I purchased a 1991 Nissan 300 ZX (non-turbo) a few months ago. The car has only 35,000 miles on it, runs great, however, it has only 222 horsepower, and although Im a conservative driver, I would like the feel of more power. I would like a noticeable difference in normal driving and moderate rpm (below 4,500) and am not interested in raising the rpm limit. Im considering buying a performance chip, a performance module, or having the ECU reprogrammed. Will any of these things work? Ralph Dear Ralph: Unfortunately, you are starting with a low horsepower engine. If you did want to spend a few bucks, then I would replace the exhaust and install a high-flow catalytic converter and fresh air intake. The computer reprogramming is also a good idea and will increase power at all RPM levels. These upgrades are all that I would advise to do.Junior Damato is an ASE-certified Master Technician.E-mail questions to info@motormatters.biz Mail questions to: Auto Doctor3 Court Circle, Lakeville, MA 02347Listen to Junior online at www.1460wxbr.comSaturdays from 7am to 10 am eastern time.WITH JUNIOR DAMATO ASK THE AUTO DOCTOR LOCAL CLUB NEWSSUNDAY____________________________________________ CITRUS COUNTY RETREADS meet for breakfast at 8 a.m. Sundays at the restaurant at rear of B&W Rexall Drugs, Inverness.

Send us your automotive and auto club events information to wheels@chronicleonline.com THE FAST LANE Top 5 Minivans Earned 2011 TOP SFETY PIC 1979 Scout was Treasured Carolyn Spencer and her now deceased husband always enjoyed a life together of activities in the great outdoors. Its the reason that almost 35 years ago they began shopping for a versatile vehicle that could pull a boat, make off-roading adventures and it had to be something they could tow behind their motorhome. They found the vehicle of their dreams in an International Harvester Scout. The Spencers purchased a 1979 Scout with a sturdy 345-cubic-inch V8 engine under the hood. The Scout they chose for use primarily as a weekend cruiser was red with orange stripe decals. The vehicle had a removable white steel top Spencer says. On the top was the chrome-plated roof rack, which she says, makes it look cuter. The couple selected a Scout that was very well equipped with some features not usually associated with off-road vehicles including: undercoating, power brakes, 4-wheel drive, rear speakers, power steering, power windows, air conditioning, outrigger mirrors, 148horsepower V-8, automatic transmission and an AM/FM stereo 8-track radio. Spencer admits that the automatic transmission was for her benefit. Its built like a tank, she says. For additional ease, the Scout came equipped with a tilt steering wheel. She says that the Scout has, a short turning radius. The G78x15-inch white sidewall tires help dress up the appearance of the Scout in conjunction with the chrome wheels. Elsewhere on the Scout there is no shortage of chrome trim. Sliding windows in the white cap provide plenty of ventilation for any rear seat passengers. With the back seat folded down toward the front the rear cargo area becomes enormous. The front bucket seats and side panels are covered in a combination of rust-colored and black vinyl and cloth fabric. Between the bucket seats is the floor-mounted gearshift lever. A manual transmission, Spencer says, was never my thing. The super capable Scout weighs 3,686 pounds, and according to records Spencer kept, the vehicle they purchased in 1979 cost $10,833.23. In order to traverse a respectable amount of territory a 19.6gallon gasoline tank was standard equipment. For most of the last 32 years the Scout has spent much of the time in and around Dickinson, Texas, just south of Houston. That is an area where the roads are rarely treated in the winter with salt. Consequently, the Spencers Scout, even after all these years, is relatively rust-free. The odometer has only recently rolled over 122,000 miles. Back in 2001, when the Scout was only 22 years old, Spencers husband had the vehicle stripped and resprayed the same color paint combination as the original. When that task was completed he had twins to the original decals applied to the Scout. As it turned out, he did most of the driving in the Scout. Its a mans vehicle, Mrs. Spencer observes. Since the death of her husband last January she rarely drives the Scout, especially in the Houston metropolitan area where she says the traffic can be challenging. She is comfortable driving at less than 45 mph. Would you like your car to be considered for an upcoming article?E-mail us your jpeg image, plus brief details and phone number.

Punctuating this effort is the all-new Colorado midsize pickup. The all-new Colorado is the first global pickup from Chevrolet, said Mary Barra, GM senior vice president of global product development. It will have strong Chevrolet truck DNA in its awardwinning heritage. Having a clear identity of the brand, its easier to move that product around the world, said Ed Welburn, global vice president of design at General Motors, who has taken on the responsibility of the ultimate keeper of all our global brands. General Motors is launching the 2012 Colorado in October in Thailand, Barra said, which is the worlds largest market for midsize pickups. Four out of every 10 vehicles sold in Thailand is a midsize pickup. Following Thailand, GM will launch in 60-plus markets around the world, including the United States. Unfortunately, key information about the new-generation Colorado, built for the U.S. market, isnt available. Details such as timing, pricing and the production location will be announced in the coming months. Since GM reports the current-generation Colorado will be produced in Shreveport, La., through the 2012 model year, a good guess is the new Colorado will be a 2013 model. What is clear about the U.S.-bound pickup is its basic design. Barra said the Colorado poised on the stage during the press conference of Chevrolets 100th birthday is representative of the truck that will go on sale in the United States. In Thailand, the truck will be offered in standard and crew-cab versions. Its based on our allnew truck architecture developed in Brazil with the support of GMs global productdevelopment organization, she said. Its engineered to meet the local needs in major markets around the world. General Motors is tailoring the Colorado to specific markets. A GM team lived in Thailand and studied the market there during the pickups development. They immersed themselves in the highly competitive truck market and observed how the Thai people use their vehicles and the driving conditions they experience, said Brad Merkel, global vehicle line executive. A similar development process will precede the launch of the truck in the U.S. market. The new Colorado isnt a stereotypical pickup design with a boxy cab, hood and cargo box. Its a sculpted, athletic-looking truck and has a youthful appeal. Wherever its sold, its exterior design conveys the strength of Chevrolet, Barra said. A signature Chevrolet dual-port grille takes up lots of frontend real estate. The center bar is body-colored and wears the gold Chevy bow tie, and the openings are framed in chrome and filled with black honeycomb mesh. The hood rises above the flared fenders power-dome style, and projector-beam headlamps are interestingly cut into the fenders, with the clear tops exposed. The lower fascia mostly is body colored, with a black chin/skid plate at the center and chromeframed fog lamps at each end. If the truck on display wearing bent spoke wheels is an indicator, it appears the Colorado will be offered with creative wheel designs. Designers gave the Colorado rakish A-pillars, a roofline that drops at the rear, and rear windows that are distinctively cut with rising lower corners. At the rear are three-element horizontal taillamps and a chrome bumper topped with a black protective surface. Within the cab, the two-tone design is straightforward, featuring Chevrolets signature dual-cockpit instrument panel styling that blends with the door panels. This effect, Barra said, is intended to amplify the spacious feel. Gauges, which are three-dimensional designs, are inspired by motorcycle styling. The center stack features a circular climate-control layout with buttons surrounding a large knob. This center panel drops to form a U-shaped base on the floor, which is home for the shifter. From that point, the center console swoops back and upward to a tall armrest/storage compartment. The powerplants that will be available in the U.S. models remains a big question. The Colorado trucks launched in Thailand will be equipped with 2.5-liter and 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engines. A primary focus on trucks destined for the U.S. market will be fuel economy, Barra said, noting fuel efficiency and value will be important elements separating the Colorado from full-size pickups. We have both (fullsize and midsize) products in the portfolio, and we think that both can co-exist and provide a different value proposition, depending what the needs of the customer are, she said. This is a very different product and I think its going to have its own value proposition for a segment of the consumers in the marketplace. What customers want and need from a pickup can be different across the segments, Barra said. Some are looking for work trucks and others simply are passionate about driving trucks. Theres room in the marketplace, she said, to build pickups to accommodate the needs of both types of consumers. Tim Spell is automotive editor of the Houston Chronicle InMotion section.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, DECEMBER20, 2011 D5 Women Auto Know: Maintenance is Key to Longevity Women car owners take a lesson from something Im schooled in: By not doing maintenance on the car Im making payments on every month, Im flushing money down the drain. The next car you buy will be more expensive than the one you drive now. Thats a guarantee. Think about car care as money in the bank. The economy will force most of us to hold on longer to the vehicles we have. My advice is to take that owners manual out of the glove box once in a while and refer to it. They are usually very easy to read and as you learn the different systems in your vehicle youll communicate better with your technician. Here are car care functions women auto know: Fluids: If fluids are low and/or dirty, the your vehicle gets dehydrated just like we do. You already know you have to get the engine oil chnaged. But, check your car manual to see at what mileage an oil change is recommended. Depending on the kind of oil you use, an oil change is advisable every 7,000 miles or if your vehicle uses synthetic oil, a change can wait until the vehicle has been driven 15,000 to 20,000 miles. You dont necessarily have to buy the every 3,000 miles advice. Other fluids that will need checking or replacing are transmission, power steering, brake, windshield, anti-freeze/coolant and differential, manual transmission and transfer case, if your vehicle is so equipped. Dirty fluids can cause premature wear. Filters: Dirty, clogged filters can decrease performance. Your vehicle has several filters, including ones for air and fuel filters. The cabin filter may need replacing if you notice heat or air conditioning effectiveness reduced. Belts and Hoses: The Car Care Council says that not replacing the timing belt between 60,000 and 90,000 miles can cause a breakdown or serious engine damage. V-belts and serpentine belts should be examined for cracks, frays, glazing or excessive wear. Hoses should be replaced when leaking, brittle, cracked, rusted, swollen or restricted, according to CCC. Check them at each oil change. Brakes: Have your brake system inspected every year. Check with your service manager to confirm that theyve over linings, rotors and drums. If you hear grinding noises, or if the brake pedal feels squishy or goes to the floor, or the steering wheel shakes when brakes are applied, then youve waited too long for a check-up. Battery: Check the connections and make sure they are clean, tight and corrosion free. TrustMyMechanic.com says loose or dirty battery cables are a common no-start condition. Cable ends and battery terminals should be cleaned with a wire brush and light sand paper periodically to remove any corrosion buildup. Exhaust System: Inspect for leaks, damage and broken supports or hangars if you hear unusual noises. Leaks can cause carbon monoxide to get into the passenger cabin. Heating, Ventilation and Airconditioning (HVAC): If the heating and cooling in your vehicle isnt up to par, then you need to have your HVAC systems checked, especially if youre coming up on extreme weather. The HVAC is connected to the defroster, so as winter approaches it is important to have those systems working. Steering and Suspension: Run an annual check of the systems, including shock absorbers, struts and chassis parts such as ball joints, tie rod ends and other related components. Tires: Regularly check your tire pressure on cold tires. Low tire pressure has a negative impact on fuel economy. But check tread as well. Uneven tire wear, or a shimmy/shake, may indicate your vehicle is due for an alignment. Tires should also be checked for bulges and bald spots. Wipers: If your windshield wipers are not cleaning properly, its time to replace them so you can see when youre driving in heavy precipitation, rain or snow. Lighting: Replace all exterior and interior lights that go out. For more information on maintenance visit www.carcare.org where you can send for a free booklet that will provide more detail. It can also be read online. I also found that trustmymechanic.com can provide anyone even those of us who arent handy with a detailed, easily digested, education on how to take care of your vehicle.
