Port Citrus not new idea C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterImagine what you expect to find inside an abandoned 1954 Spartan trailer: vintage furniture, out-offashion clothing and a 1969 Port Citrus feasibility study. The last item likely would be unexpected. It was a surprise Jeff Nigels said tickled him a couple of weeks ago when he started cleaning out the old mobile home. Digging through the stuff that was in it, this is what I came across, the Lecanto resident said, flourishing a bound, 21-page document titled Supplement Cargo Analysis Cost Estimate, Citrus County Port Authority. Aside from some water stains, the booklet is in good shape, with legible print revealing it was prepared by Reynolds, Smith and Hills Architects-EngineersPlanners in September 1969. The old Spartan once belonged to Russell Dean Freeman, the father of Nigels wife, Mary. When my father-in-law passed away (in 2002), that Popular lottery more pricey Powerball doubling to $2 Associated PressDES MOINES, Iowa Powerball lottery organizers are betting bigger jackpots will entice more people to play, but gamblers are going to have to dig deeper into their wallets to try their luck. Tickets for the multistate game are doubling in price to $2 beginning Jan 15. While the odds of winning one of the games giant jackpots also are improving, those in charge of the lottery are gambling that people are willing to pay more for the hope of becoming a millionaire in a down economy. With the price of everything else going up, theres not much you can get for a dollar anymore, said 28year-old Ryan Raker, of Des Moines, Iowa, who buys a ticket once a month. He says hell probably play less frequently now. Lotteries have long sold regular people on the hope of becoming rich quick by simply picking a lucky combination of numbers. Some play loved ones birthdays or anniversaries in the hope fate may point them in the direction of a jackpot. Selling that hope is easy; less so is predicting consumers sensitivity to price changes. Powerballs move follows the model of scratch ticket games, which once were all $1 but now are offered at higher prices with the chance for bigger prizes. The evolution of scratch tickets and the creation of families of games that offer tickets at different prices has proven successful across the country, said Rebecca Hargrove, president of the Tennessee Lottery. Scratch games like Win for Life in Illinois, Jumbo Bucks in Tennessee and the Church reports stolen bell Authorities investigate metal theft N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterFLORAL CITY Every Sunday morning around 9 a.m. someone from New Hope Methodist Church on Istachatta Road rings the steeple bell as a call to worship. Its hard to tell just how many years that tradition has been going on or just how old the bell is. The original church, one of the oldest in Citrus County, began in 1830, and the first building was erected in 1884. The new church building was built in 1940. And every Sunday, someone rang the bell until the Sunday before Christmas. Somebody stole the bell from the steeple. In an email sent out to the churchs members, Beverly Raynor, who handles church publicity, wrote: Our head usher tried to ring our steeple bell to start our Sunday service; he thought the rope had come off the bell. As he pulled on the rope, it fell to the floor. Two of our trustees went on the roof to try to reconnect the bell rope, but to their amazement someone had climbed onto the roof, broke into the steeple and removed the bell.We aretrying to understand why our bell was stolen. We are praying for those responsible and looking forward to our bells return. Clyde Edwards, one of several regular bell ringers, said he wasnt there the day they discovered it stolen. When I did get over to the church, I walked around the church and saw that the side of the belfry, all the slats were off on the north side, toward the graveyard. I took a ladder and climbed up on the roof to take a look no bell, he said. Edwards said hes not even sure how big the bell is or what its made out of. He guessed that its brass. The last man to climb up on the roof to replace the rope died a few years ago. The streetlight in front of the church had been smashed, so the thief or thieves had the cover of darkness. Its pretty bad when people steal a church bell to get money, Edwards said. Which raises the question: What do you do with a stolen church bell? Sell it on eBay? Take it to a pawn shop? Sell it for scrap metal? When church members discovered the bell missing, they called the sheriffs office to make a report. According to an incident report, a detective has been assigned to the open pending burglary case. Meanwhile, Raynor has printed up fliers to put up around town, hoping someone who has any information about the stolen bell will come forward. Even those who took it, all they have to do is leave it at the church no questions asked. Church services continue for the 60 or so regular attendees, but its not the same at this Istachatta institution. They just want their bell back.

Back to nature at Dames Caves C itrus County is often called Natures Playground for the abundance of nature-themed recreation, awe-inspiring scenery and a place to cozy up to sea cows our mammalian marine cousins. However, when I opted to indulge my subterranean inner being and took a quick detour off much-traveled County Road 491, the rewards were nothing short of spectacular or, to be more precise, it was spelunker. For those of us not too versed in such things, spelunker is the hobby of exploring caves and I decided to take on the grande dame of the dry cave systems in Florida the Dames. And it is literally just off the beaten path in our own backyard. The Dames Cave area is in the Citrus portion of the Withlacoochee State Forest and are found on what geologists call the western portion of the Brooksville Ridge physiographic region. Florida is underlain with what are called karst landforms, including caves and our aquifer network. Geologically, the Dames Caves area is believed to have been around since the beginning of the Cenozoic period some 65.5 million years ago therefore qualifying it as one of the oldest caves in Florida.

Geologists also believe the Dames Caves are a group of caves that were probably once interconnected. Four of the caves have been named and mapped: Danger Cave, Vandal Cave, Peace Sign Cave and Sick Bat Cave. Two small caves, openings really, have been found and mapped as annexes to Vandal Cave. Peace Cave is north of Vandal Cave and it has a peace sign carved on a tree to welcome visitors. The entrance trail to the Dames Caves is extremely easy to miss, but if you travel from State Road 44 south on C.R. 491, it will take, easily, 12 miles before you can start looking for it. The entrance near the gate has several tan-looking pylons or posts about three feet tall and directly across the street is a country road with a street sign that reads West Lone Court. Parking can be done in the immediate area off C.R. 491, as motor vehicles are not permitted in the state forest. Walk through the gate and follow the trail for about half a mile. You will get to a clearing with a mini information kiosk and a trash can. You will also notice a low, heavy gauge wire fencelike structure and just beyond is the sky-roof of an area I call the living room, but its commonly known as Vandal Cave. Two striking collapses have created karst windows into Vandal Cave. The cave gets its name from the excessive graffiti and unfortunate vandalism the area has endured through the years. From the top, it appears to be quite easily a 30-foot drop into the main part of the cave, but to the right of the collapsed top is an opening that leads down to the main cave. It is a can-do for most able-bodied people to navigate. Once you are in the cave, sans the scribbles and the physical damage inflicted over time by man and nature, it truly feels like a rendezvous with nature. On this day, the sun was trying to break through the forest canopy and shine into the collapsed openings. It felt ambient in the grotto and completely free of little critters. The exposed limerock reveals several strata of earths evolution and history. The floor of the cave was compacted and relatively solid, in all, it felt like a primitively finished underground dwelling. There is an adjoining and smaller room with humansize holes for the serious spelunkers. Navigating those holes will require some belly-slinking, crawling and headlights to explore the subterranean conduits in the Dames Complex. Take care and use common sense when attempting to wriggle into a small opening overeager explorers have gotten trapped in Peace Cave in the past, requiring rescue. Chronicle reporter A.B.

Around THE STATE Citrus County Audubon Society trip scheduled for Jan. 10 Citrus County Audubon Society has scheduled a birding field trip at Bottoms RoadSt. Marks Island in the Panacea-Newport area Tuesday, Jan. 10. The public is welcome to attend. Pre-registration is not necessary and participants with all levels of birding skills are welcome. This field trip is led by CCAS member Pat Bazany. Meet at the Best Western parking lot in Medart. The field trip begins at 7:30 a.m. It will be an easy walking trip and last about six to seven hours. Due to the distance, most birders will travel up the night before. Established in 1931, St. Marks is one of the oldest refuges in the National Wildlife Refuge System. Its 68,000 acres provides wintering habitat for migratory birds. Uplands forests, forested swamps, fresh and brackish water marshes and a pristine salt water estuary ecosystem make it a favorite for birders. Some of the unusual birds may include: mallard, greenwinged teal, canvasback, redhead, bufflehead, ruddy duck, horned grebe, Virginia rail, sora and white-breasted nuthatch.

Ruskin Police: Celebratory gunfire wounds boy Authorities say celebratory gunfire falling from the sky critically injured a 12-year-old Tampa Bay-area boy. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office said the boys family was sitting outside their Ruskin home around 1 a.m. Sunday and watching fireworks. Sheriffs office spokesman Larry McKinnon says the boys mother saw him fall to the ground, bleeding from his nose and eyes. She drove him to a hospital, where doctors determined he had suffered a gunshot wound from a bullet that entered the top of his head. McKinnon said the boy remains hospitalized in Tampa in critical condition with the bullet still in his head. Palatka Child run over by truck at adventure park Authorities say a child has died after being run over by a truck driven by a relative at a north Florida adventure park. Lt. Bill Leeper of the Florida Highway Patrol said the truck backed over the child Saturday afternoon at a mud-bogging gathering at the Putnam County park. The Hog Waller Mud Bog and ATV Park posted a message on its website expressing condolences to the childs family. The park said the accident happened in one of its camping areas. From staff and wire reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 MONDAY, JANUARY 2, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE S ANDRA F REDRICK Staff WriterLocal and state officials are encouraging Florida residents to recycle their Christmas trees if possible. In Citrus County, officials are offering free Christmas tree disposal at the landfill in January. Trees must be cleaned of all decorations, lights and no artificial snow, said Deborah Bloss, public information liaison with the county. In cooperation with Citrus County Aquatics Services, the Citrus County Landfill Solid Waste Management will collect the trees. They then will be placed in surrounding lakes to build fish attractors, a natural habitat. Fish attractors are comprised primarily of Christmas trees collected following the holiday. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission works in partnership with the county on the location of the attractors. For more information on landfill hours, call 352-527-7670 during office hours or visit www.bocc.citrus.fl.us. Click on departments, then Public Works, then Solid Waste. The Florida Department of Agriculture says recycling trees protects the environment and reduces the chance of starting a wildfire. Should Floridians choose to burn their Christmas tree instead, the Department offers 10 safety tips to avoid danger: Check local ordinances and requirements for outdoor burning. Only burn if significant rainfall has occurred in the past three to four days. Never burn on windy or high fire danger days. Only burn between 9 a.m. and one hour before dark. Select an appropriate site to burn, which meets or exceeds the following requirements: 25 feet from wildland brush or forested area; 25 feet from your home and 150 feet from your closest neighbor; 50 feet from any paved public roadway. Clear the burn area of combustible materials. Remove all decorations from the tree before burning. Cut the tree into manageable sections, as necessary. Do not leave the fire until it is out. Keep a water hose and shovel on hand.

Landfill to recycle Christmas trees Discarded item may be used as fish attractor in lakes Florida raising minimum wages Special to the ChronicleFlorida is among eight states with minimum wage rates set to increase Jan. 1. On Sunday, the Florida minimum wage increased from $7.31 per hour to $7.67. Floridas minimum wage applies to all employees in the state who are covered by the federal minimum wage, currently $7.25 an hour. By law, workers are entitled to the higher rate if the states minimum wage exceeds the federal level, which was last adjusted in 2009. Also effective Jan. 1, employers of tipped employees may count tips actually received as wages, provided they pay tipped employees a direct hourly wage of $4.65. Florida voters approved a constitutional amendment in 2004 which created the states minimum wage and requires it keeps pace with inflation. Floridas Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) calculates the states minimum wage based on fluctuations in the consumer price index for the southern region. When first introduced in May 2005, Floridas minimum wage was $6.15, topping what was then the federal wage of $5.15. Since then, the states minimum wage has been raised seven times while the federal rate has gone up three times. The federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) exempts certain jobs from state and federal minimum wage law, including farm and seasonal workers, those who deliver newspapers and other informal workers, such as babysitters. Twenty-three U.S. territories and states in 2011 had minimum wages set at the federal level; the lowest minimum wage was Puerto Ricos at $4.10 an hour, while Georgia and Wyoming had minimum wages of $5.15. The highest minimum wages were $8.67 in Washington and $8.50 in Oregon. Five states had no state minimum wage. In addition to Florida, states raising minimum wages effective New Years Day were Arizona, Colorado, Montana, Ohio, Oregon, Vermont and Washington. Increases range from 28 to 37 cents an hour; Washington continues to lead the nation with a minimum wage in 2012 of $9.04 the first state or territory to top $9 per hour followed by Oregon with $8.80. San Francisco, one of the few cities that sets its own minimum wage above the federal level, will raise its rate to $10.24 per hour, becoming the first big city to require an hourly wage rate of at least $10. Floridas minimum wage poster is available for downloading in English and Spanish from DEO at www.clmworkforce.com or at http://floridajobs.org. The DEO website also provides links to posters and other information required by the U.S. Department of Labor. Workers may earn $7.67 per hour ( Editors note: Losing weight is one of the top New Years resolutions. This story is about a local woman who is succeeding in her goal to slim down. The Chronicle is looking for someone who is beginning a weight-loss program through diet and exercise and hard work and who would be willing to have a reporter and photographer follow him or her throughout the year.

N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS On Ashley Briscoes 27th birthday this past Dec. 4, she accomplished two things she had never dared to even dream she could do: She reached a 100pound weight loss and completed a Tough Mudder, a 12-mile/28obstacle race. At three hours, 40 minutes, she didnt come in first, but she still won. Although Im still losing weight, still working on me, it was the end point to the old Ashley and the time to prove to myself and anyone who ever doubted me that I could do anything I wanted to do, and that was monumental, she said. In chronicling Briscoes weight loss story thus far, here are some of her milestones and lessons learned: Turning point Unhappy in every aspect of her life, it took being sick in bed for an entire week to get her to realize her plight and that she was ready to be happy, healthy and normal. First milestone Breaking up with a longtime boyfriend and joining a gym. Aha moments Discovering healthy foods can be delicious and exercising can be enjoyable. I actually look forward to exercising and to that endorphin release to relieve stress instead of turning to food, she said. I went from never exercising to doing every type of fitness activity available to me, including running for 2 1/2 hours straight and mixed martial arts training. Motivation Working with trainer Otto Lecuona Jr., at Dynabody Fitness Club in Inverness. He taught me I didntWEIGHT LOSS Woman loses 100 pounds in a year DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle Ashley Briscoe shows the size 3X scrubs she used to wear at her job. In the past year, Briscoe has lost 100 pounds, thanks to dieting and exercise. Her inspiration comes from the staff at Dynabody. She plans to continue her routine into 2012. have to rely on food I could rely on myself, Briscoe said. He believed in me, and I never felt judged by him. I felt he wanted this for me as much as I wanted it for myself. Biggest surprise Discovering she likes the way she looks in a dress, something she never wore. After years of dressing in baggy boy clothes, she now enjoys shopping, looking more feminine, wearing make up and fixing her hair. Briscoe, who is of average height, went from a size 24 to a size 12. Her goal is to one day wear a single digit size. Food tricks Eating lots of vegetables and eating them first during a meal. She also eats fruit in the morning because theyre higher in sugar than vegetables. Memorable milestone Getting to the under 200 weight. I was always obese and I hadnt weighed less than 200 since high school, so that was a big deal, she said. Triumphant moment I Losing 100 pounds. She didnt believe it at first and kept asking, Are you sure? Are you sure? Triumph moment II Participating in (and finishing) the Tough Mudder challenge event on her 27th birthday. Best advice Believe in the process, Briscoe said. Change is not easy staying the same is easy. But its worth it if you want it bad enough. And you have to realize its not a short-term thing. Lecuona added, When you want it bad enough you can make it happen. With Ashley, her biggest challenge was believing in herself and what she could do. For most people, the biggest obstacle is their own self-imposed barriers. Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@ chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2927.

K EVIN D. THOMPSON The Palm Beach Post WELLINGTON Six years. Thats how long Scott Williamson lived. Six. Short. Years. Born in 1968 with severe cerebral palsy to Del and Barbara Williamson, Scott never crawled or walked in his blink-of-an-eye life. His body couldnt metabolize food properly, so it often took his mother hours to feed him. Scott weighed only 20 pounds when he died in 1974. There were some tough nights, Barbara said. He lived on love. But more than three decades later, Scotts memory lives and breathes in Wellington at Scotts Place, a barrierfree playground where kids with disabilities can play alongside children without disabilities. The 1-acre, equestrianthemed park, near the Wellington Town Center complex on Forest Hill Boulevard, opened March 1, 2010. About 75 percent of the equipment in Scotts Place is accessible to kids with special needs, including a series of ramps and stations that have games built into them. Extra-wide sidewalks and ramps give wheelchairs access to all areas of the park. Classic-looking playground equipment (slides and swings) has been modified to provide handicap accessibility. Id like to think Scott would be pretty happy and proud, Del said, although his son probably would not have had the motor skills to be able to play at the park named in his honor. But the Williamsons sometimes would take Scott to a park, buy him ice cream or ride the swings and slide with him. We werent ashamed to go out in public with him, Del said. We treated him as we would have treated any child. We took him wherever we went. Scott, born 2 1/2 months premature, was a twin. His brother, David, never made it home. He died seven days after he was born. The Williamsons donated $250,000 to the village for Scotts Place. General Electric, where Del worked for 45 years, ponied up $100,000. Home Depot donated another $10,000. Total price for the park: $492,118. Barbara, 70, a retired schoolteacher, got the idea to build a park for kids with special needs while the couple was living in Atlanta in 2002. Barbara was watching the news and saw a report about a woman who had a young child in a wheelchair and was trying to get a town to build a handicappedaccessible park. I was in awe of this mom for pushing for a way to get her child to actively play with other children and not to be left on the sidelines, Barbara said. Two years later, when the Williamsons moved to Wellington to be closer to their daughter, Sara, an avid equestrian, Barbaras idea began to take shape. St. Pete Times now Tampa Bay TimesST. PETERSBURG Floridas largest newspaper has a new name. The St. Petersburg Times became the Tampa Bay Times on Sunday. The downtown Tampa arena where the Tampa Bay Lightning play hockey also starts the new year with a new name. On Sunday, the St. Pete Times Forum becomes the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Newspaper officials announced the changes in November, saying the new name reflected the newspapers growth across the Tampa Bay region. The St. Petersburg-based Poynter Institute for Media Studies remains the papers owner. Its free tabloid tbt* will remain free and will be published as an edition of the Tampa Bay Times State investigates fire at clinicPENSACOLA The State Fire Marshalls office is investigating a fire that gutted a Florida Panhandle clinic that has been the target of abortion protests. Pensacola Fire Department Battalion Chief Steve Peake told the Pensacola News Journal the two-story building housing the American Family Planning clinic was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived after 1 a.m. Sunday. No one was injured. Peake said the investigation was turned over to the state. X Factor winner returns for pizzaSUNRISE The end of 2011 was good to Melanie Amaro she won The X Factor and she got a pizza named after her in her Florida hometown. The 19-year-old singer who won Foxs talent competition last month stopped at a Sunrise restaurant Saturday to try a pizza named for her. Scuottos Pizza & Pasta owner Joey Scuotto added the Melanie Amaro Pizza to his menu. The dish has Amaros favorite toppings: pepperoni, bacon and mushroom. Amaro told the Sun Sentinel she thinks its an honor to have a pizza named for her. She said she loves pizza, and she helped herself to two slices of her namesake pie. Amaro won a $5 million recording contract on the Dec. 22 finale of The X Factor.Sunshine Skyway to appear on stamp ST. PETERSBURG A Tampa Bay-area landmark will be featured on a U.S. postage stamp. The Tampa Bay Times reported the U.S. Postal Service announced Friday the Sunshine Skyway will appear on a priority mail stamp. The bridge stretches more than four miles across Tampa Bay, linking Pinellas and Manatee counties. It was completed in 1987. The Postal Service said the stamp will feature the bridge silhouetted against an orange sky above the blue water of the bay. The stamps date of issue has not been set.

Crosswords game in Iowa have all been successful, Hargrove said. The more choices you gave players the higher the sales were, Hargrove said. A family of games at multiple price points created the most excitement. Once those kinds of games were introduced, we saw a dramatic increase in sales. For example, in Iowa, scratch ticket sales increased from $125 million in 2007 to $165.3 million in 2011, state lottery officials said. Lottery officials believe increasing the price of the game will make it more attractive to players, said Terry Rich, spokesman for the West Des Moines-based Multistate Lottery Association, which runs Powerball. People like variety, Rich said. Were repackaging and freshening up the product and enriching the product. Powerball is the big fish of the various lottery games states offer, and typically has some of the biggest payouts. There are nine ways to win the game, from a $3 prize for matching the Power Ball number to various payouts for different combinations of winning numbers. Odds of winning are improving because of changes the game is making in the numbers players can choose. The number of Power Ball numbers to choose from will decrease from 39 to 35. That will raise the odds of winning from 1 in 192 million to 1 in 175 million. Picking the right numbers will have a bigger payoff: The starting jackpot is rising from $20 to $40 million. The amount won for matching all five numbers but not the Power Ball will increase from $200,000 to $1 million. The move is a strategy to differentiate the game from Mega Millions, the other big money, multi-state lottery game that is sold for $1 a ticket. Both games are sold in 42 states, plus the U.S. Virgin Islands and Washington D.C. Each game has drawings twice a week. It could pay off, because consumers often get more excited about larger jackpots and play more. Clyde Barrow, a gambling expert at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, said larger jackpots should attract more players, even at the higher price. As prizes escalate more people tend to enter the game, he said. The big draw will be the size of the jackpot. The idea is that at $12 million people dont get too excited but when it crosses $140 million, more people will play and by increasing the price level of tickets you will reach that prize level much faster. Rich said sales may dip at first but likely would climb as jackpots soar. Half of ticket sales are returned to the states where Powerball is played to help fund government programs. We wouldnt be doing it if we didnt think more money would be coming back to the states and help them with revenues during these tough economic times, Rich said. Hargrove, the Tennessee lottery executive, said many players already pay an extra dollar to play an option called the Power Play, which can multiply winnings for prizes below the jackpot level. In Oklahoma, 40 percent of players already are paying $2 for a Powerball ticket with the Power Play option. In Tennessee, nearly 30 percent pay to play the Power Play option. The option will continue to be offered for an extra dollar with the new changes, Hargrove said. Still, the game may have work to do to win over players hesitant to fork over an extra dollar. Many say theyll simply play half as much, or switch to the less expensive Mega Millions. Irwin Weitz, who owns an Atlanta home improvement business, said he buys five to 10 tickets each time the Powerball jackpot reaches $100 million. The 57-yearold said hes not swayed by promises of higher, fastergrowing jackpots and will buy half as many Powerball tickets. I dont see the argument, Weitz said. The reality is when the odds are so high, youre just gambling on a dream of becoming rich quick. was on his property, Nigels said. It was a storage trailer. Instead of scrapping it, we wound up with it. Its been sitting in the front yard for better than five years. It sat over on his property for better than 10 years. Nigels decided he needed to do something with the trailer clean it out, make a shop out of it or sell it to a collector. When he found the old port study, he recognized it as a current event. The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners has been working on a Port Citrus project at the former Cross Florida Barge Canal since Feb. 22 and is in the process of commissioning a new port feasibility study. Nigels was prepared to share his opinion about Port Citrus. I dont know anybody in Citrus County that is even qualified to work in a port, Nigels said. Much less, that port probably wont be built for the next 20 years. Most of us who could work in it arent going to be able to work in it. Nigels had no idea a study had been commissioned 42 years ago. When I found this, it was like: Seriously? I never knew they even considered a port, Nigels said. He has read the report and found it interesting. Theyve broken it down: What can be shipped out, what can be brought in, Nigels said. The costs are there. This company did their homework. Economic thoroughness aside, however, the report does not name who commissioned the report or who sat on a 1969 port authority. Adding to the mystery, Nigels does not know how Freeman came to have a copy. An Air Force and Marine Corps veteran, Freeman retired from the Citrus County Road Maintenance Division with 13 years of service. He owned several businesses and was an executive officer in the Civil Air Patrol, a volunteer firefighter for Homosassa Fire Department, a disaster preparedness worker, a radiological monitor and instructor in radiological defense and aerial radiological monitoring. All those connections dont explain how the report was acquired. Then Mary Nigels said her father liked to buy boxes of miscellaneous materials at auctions. One way or another, a person could end up with an old feasibility study. According to the study, the port authority in 1969 designated 55 square miles adjacent to the barge canal as Port Citrus Area. At that time, the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers was about five years into digging the Cross Florida Barge Canal, a project that was aborted in 1971. The report described the area as ideal for facilities and industry. Master plans show a number of terminals along the 10 miles of canal in the county, even to the east side of U.S. 19. Limits were recognized at that time: Commodities inbound or outbound would compete with Tampa and Jacksonville ports. This limits somewhat the distribution area to be served. A study was made of the Port Tampa commodities, having a considerable volume, which might move by barge and be diverted through Port Citrus. Anticipated traffic also was limited as the barge canal was incomplete. A shipping pattern must be established, the report said. The presence of a port would raise economic prospects by attracting industry to the county, according to the report. One suggested industry that has not been broached in present discussions should prove popular if promoted again: a brewery. Citrus County would be an ideal place for the manufacture of beer, the report said. The abundance of fine water, barge transportation of grains from the middle west, the ready made animal feed market for disposal of the malt in the form of pellets throughout the southeast and good land transportation arteries are considerations. Had this plan been followed, the county may not have built a brewery. But it would have built a port for an estimated $2.8-million price tag.

O PINION Page A8 MONDAY, JANUARY 2, 2012 Springs spectacular I wanted to write to the Chronicle to express my excitement and gratitude to the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission for the work its done thus far on the development of the Three Sisters Springs public area. Im a former Citrus High School student who visits Inverness to see her folks several times a year. Saturday, Dec. 10, my boyfriend and I visited Kings Bay for a manatee snorkeling tour, and afterwards visited the public opening of Three Sisters Springs. I had visited Three Sisters several times years ago, and I was delightfully surprised to see the boardwalk surrounding this beautiful and photographic location. Job well done to FFWCC and the City of Crystal River. We must have seen at least 30 manatees resting in their protected habitat it was an amazing sight to see! I very much look forward to the development of this public area in the coming years. Laurie Kusmaul Inverness Helping others The whole shebang! Citrus County residents really come through! As theactivity director of CRHR, I would like to commend the members of ourcommunity for coming through for our residents this Christmas. Wow! Shoes,socks, cosmetics, baby dolls, books, snacks, cookies, clothes, puzzles,scents, cards, caroling, candy, calendars, etc. (Our) deepest thanks goes to LesleyOdells Clothesline, Lyn Cokers Just a Cupcake, The West Citrus Elks, CRHeadstart, Kimberly and Jennifer Havner, CR Womens Club, CR Lions Club, CRRehab staff and most of all God! Thank you all. Anita Marshall, AD Crystal River Health & Rehab R OBERTC. KOEHLER Guest columnist T he Lakotah had no language for insulting other orders of existence: pest, waste, weed . But what about bugsplat? Thats the word for the cop at UC Davis, walking up and down the line of students sitting with their arms locked, zapping them in the eyes with pepper spray. Its the word for the Tunisian police and bureaucrats who humiliated Mohamed Bouazizi and destroyed his livelihood as a street vendor. Its the word for anyone whose power exceeds his humanity. And, according to a 2003 Washington Poststory, its the name of a Defense Department computer program for calculating collateral damage, as well as, apparently, casual terminology among Pentagon operation planners and the like to refer to the collateral damage itself ... you know, the dead civilians. CIA drone operators talk about bugsplat. The British organization Reprieve calls its effort to track the number of people killed by U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen Project Bugsplat. Its a term Ive only recently come across, but I cant get it out of my head. The only way I know how to begin thinking about it is to quote that passage from Rupert Ross extraordinary book about Native American wisdom, Returning to the Teachings, and contemplate the idea of a people who have no language for insulting other orders of existence. Such a thought, it seems to me, is worth sitting with for a while, especially as we read or listen to the news and behold the daily unfolding of our casual disrespect for every order of existence, including our own. Ross goes on to talk about the core teaching that all aspects of Creation were essential, none were superior and each must be respected if all are to survive. What if this is actually true? What if this is the depth at which we need to transform ourselves, not merely personally but at every level of our interaction with the world, including geopolitically? But even when theyre not targeting civilians, which is probably most of the time, they end up killing massive numbers of civilians, journalist Allan Nairn told Amy Goodman in a Democracy Now! interview last year. The Pentagon has a word for that, too, he went on. They call it bugsplat. In the opening days of the invasion of Iraq, they ran computer programs, and they called the program the Bugsplat program, estimating how many civilians they would kill with a given bombing raid. On the opening day, the printouts presented to General Tommy Franks indicated 22 of the projected bombing attacks on Iraq would produce what they defined as heavy bugsplat that is, more than 30 civilian deaths per raid. Franks said, Go ahead. Were doing all 22. And this is the foundation of our national security. I go back to the now-infamous video of the policeman at UC Davis, acting not so much in personal disdain toward the students he was pepper-spraying as in a context of institutional disdain for them. The police defined their role as restoring order, but what they were doing was reestablishing turf. To that end, they were simply doing their jobs: removing impediments. The extended video of the incident, showing the chaotic aftermath of the spraying, with the crowd screaming Shame on you! as the injured students clutch their faces and roll on the ground in pain, as some are cuffed while they lie face-down in the grass, is almost as harrowing to watch as battle footage. At one point someone shouts in outrage, These are children! While the balance of power seems remarkably uneven in this incident, in reality thats not the case. As the demonstrators focus their anger and cries of shame, the perplexed police are the ones who stumble backward, at least momentarily. This doesnt happen where we wage our wars. This, for instance, is from a New York Timesarticle on Thanksgiving Day, about a NATO airstrike in southern Afghanistan that killed seven civilians (including six children): Abdul Samad, an uncle of four of the children who were killed, disputed the governments version of the attack. He said his relatives were working in fields near their village when they were attacked without warning by an aircraft. His brother-in-law, Mohammad Rahim, 50, had his two sons and three daughters with him. They were between 4 and 12 years old and all were killed, except an 8-year-old daughter who was badly wounded, Mr. Samad said. Project Bugsplat is the name of every war, at least from the planners point of view. A winnable war is waged from above, invisibly, with godlike impunity. Such wars, especially in todays political order, cannot be effectively opposed with acts of equally brutal counterforce; they can only be prolonged. Bugsplat is a term of ultimate disrespect and indifference, and it begins with a state of mind. The global Occupy movement, with its humane and nonviolent core certainty, is tipping the balance. Finally it comes down to this: Occupy consciousness. Robert Koehler, an awardwinning, Chicago-based journalist, is a nationally syndicated writer.

HR directorSandra Frederick ............................ managing editor Curt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member BEST INTEREST Water activists turn tide on degradation T hanks to an assemblage of groups, water quality is not an afterthought in Citrus County. At one time, a division among business, growth and environmental interests existed. But, due to concerned activists and others heeding their call, a shift has taken place in recent history. Groups like TOO FAR, the Homosassa River Alliance, Citrus 20/20, Withlacoochee Area Residents and Kings Bay Muckrakers, to name a few, are the grassroots organizations helping keep water quality at the forefront of public awareness. Their efforts have challenged and spurred government officials into action. More than a decade ago local sources first sprang to life as an initiative championed by former Citrus County legislator Nancy Argenziano, whose concern for the preventing water transfers led to state legislation. In the years to follow, the various groups that embraced water quality initiatives also sprang to life. While their causes have varied and the subject of water has at times been peripheral to other concerns be it mining or high-density development the desire to protect water or reverse degradation has been ever present. Today, protecting water remains a paramount concern for many, yet threats continue. In the past 30 years, the Southwest Florida Water Management District has bought public land to protect watersheds, partnered with other state agencies to remove sediment from various bodies of water, set up water quality monitoring programs and partnered with other entities to assist with reclaimed water projects. From the latter decades of the 20th century through the dawn of the 21st century, county commissioners including Hank Cohen and Gary Bartell, among others, have done their part to change the political landscape to be more waterfriendly. Bartell, with support from fellow board members, championed the Chassahowitzka and Homosassa sewer projects. But it is the grassroots organizations that are the conscience of the county. They prove every day a number of people are interested in, and concerned about, water quality and the environment which leads to a higher quality of life for all of us. We are fortunate to have such an active community and one that understands that good water quality contributes to an outstanding quality of life for residents. THE ISSUE: Groups work to promote water quality in county.OUR OPINION: Were fortunate to have such dedicated volunteers.

If youre one of these people who gets depressed during the holidays, I suggest you take some time to volunteer at a place such as a nursing home, where people would love to have a visitor, or volunteer at a church where theyre feeding the homeless people. Believe me, that would make you realize just how well off you are and how much you have to be thankful for. Try it and youll forget all about feeling depressed.Hydrant colors explained This is in reference to the person who wrote the Hue clue about hydrant hues. Hes incorrect. The reason that there are so many different colors of hydrants is not how much water pressure is coming out of the hydrant, but actually gallons per minute of water. He needs to go back and look at his Basic Firefighting Essentials book. Stop bashing Bush Why do the diehard Democrats find it so enticing to bash Bushs presidency? When Bush was president, they never bashed Clinton. It was in bad taste. What you dont hear is any discussion of President Obamas policy. Hes been president for three years; two years, the White House, Senate and the House were all controlled by Democrats. Lets talk about their accomplishments. How about the $4 trillion in debt he added to the country? How about Obamacare? Lets talk about our president that we have right now. Dont want to do it, do you? Speeders aplenty This is in response to the Sound Off about Citrus Countys finest hiding in the woods on Kings Bay Drive to catch speeders.

Hooray for Heritage Days Once again, thanks to the many sponsors, donors and volunteers, Floral City has enjoyed another successful Heritage Days in 2011. The Floral City Heritage Council and its Heritage Days Committee wishes to express our sincere gratitude and heartfelt thanks to all the effort and hard work on our behalf. Special thanks go to the Citrus County Chroniclefor the many years of support they have provided to this event through promotion in the Chronicle pages and the printing of a special section for Heritage Days. This is a huge contribution toward the events success. We also wish to offer special thanks and appreciation to Floral Citys Ferris Farms Inc. for the free hay wagon ride/transportation during the Saturday event as well as other contributions during the two-day event. Their efforts bring many smiles to the faces of our visitors. The Floral City Lions Club has traditionally been one of our top sponsors through the years and was there with us again this year and we greatly value this relationship. Other sponsors and donors without whom we could not operate this event are: Covington Design Works; Dr. John D. Gelin; FDS Disposal Company; Tom Williford, architect; the Retired Army Medical Specialists Association; Floral City Massage & Wellness; Floral City Citgo; Floral City Foods; David Rom State Farm Insurance; TOO FAR; G. Wyman & Sons Inc.; Ace Hardware of Inverness/ Hernando; Angelos Carts; Edward Jones of Inverness; Progress Energy; Brannen Banks; and Pot O Gold Kettle Korn. A special recognition goes to the Eckerd Camp E-Nini-Hassee for the creation of the 1,000 luminaries that lined the Avenue Oaks on Friday Night. We would also like to recognize the Floral City Garden Club; The Crystal River Heritage Council; Marla Chancey of the Citrus County Visitors & Convention Bureau; Herbert Suber; American Legion Post No. 225; Floral City Church of Christ; Floral City United Methodist Church; First Baptist Church of Floral City; Mt. Carmel Methodist Church of Floral City; and The Citrus Model A Club for their help and participation. To all the other participants who provided demonstrations, exhibits, food or music, your contribution is invaluable and greatly appreciated. No event like Heritage Days can be successful without the support of the visitors who turn out for the two-day celebration of our history. So, to all of you who came out to share the good times with us we offer you our most heartfelt thanks and gratitude, and good wishes for the coming year. Lastly, an event like this happens because a community and its people care about giving others a taste of local history in a funfilled, inexpensive way. We estimate it takes approximately 100 volunteers to put on an event like Heritage Days. So many of you in the Heritage Council worked so hard to make this event happen.

From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A10 MONDAY, JANUARY 2, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressWASHINGTON Baby boomers take note: Medicare as your parents have known it is headed for big changes no matter who wins the White House in 2012. You may not like it, but you might have to accept it. Dial down the partisan rhetoric and surprising similarities emerge from competing policy prescriptions by President Barack Obama and leading Republicans such as Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan. Limit the overall growth of Medicare spending? Its in both approaches. Squeeze more money from upperincome retirees and some in the middle-class? Ditto. Raise the eligibility age? That too, if the deal is right. With more than 1.5 million baby boomers a year signing up for Medicare, the programs future is one of the most important economic issues for anyone now 50 or older. Health care costs are the most unpredictable part of retirement, and Medicare remains an exceptional deal for retirees, who can reap benefits worth far more than the payroll taxes they paid in during their careers. People would like to have what they used to have. What they dont seem to understand is that its already changed, said Gail Wilensky, a former Medicare administrator and adviser to Republicans. Medicare as we have known it is not part of our future. Two sets of numbers underscore that point. First, Medicares giant trust fund for inpatient care is projected to run out of money in 2024. At that point, the program will collect only enough payroll taxes to pay 90 percent of benefits. Second, researchers estimate 20 to 30 percent of the more than $500 billion that Medicare now spends annually is wasted on treatments and procedures of little or no benefit to patients. Taken together, that means policymakers cant let Medicare keep running on autopilot and theyll look for cuts before any payroll tax increases. Privatization is the biggest divide between Democrats and Republicans. Currently, about 75 percent of Medicare recipients are in the traditional government-run, fee-forservice program and 25 percent are in private insurance plans known as Medicare Advantage. Ryans original approach, part of a budget plan the House passed in the spring, would have put 100 percent of future retirees into private insurance. His latest plan, developed with Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., would keep traditional Medicare as an option, competing with private plans. 2012 Medicare all about baby boomers Debate continues over health care Barak Obama Rep. Paul Ryan Iran says its built nuclear fuel rod Associated PressTEHRAN, Iran Iranian scientists have produced the nations first nuclear fuel rod, a feat of engineering the West has doubted Tehran capable of, the countrys nuclear agency said Sunday. The announcement marks another step in Tehrans efforts to achieve proficiency in the entire nuclear fuel cycle from exploring uranium ore to producing nuclear fuel despite U.N. sanctions and measures by the U.S. and others to get it to halt aspects of its atomic work that could provide a possible pathway to weapons production. Tehran has long said it is forced to seek a way to manufacture the fuel rods on its own, since the sanctions ban it from buying them on foreign markets. Nuclear fuel rods are tubes containing pellets of enriched uranium that provide fuel for nuclear reactors. Irans atomic energy agencys website said the first domestically made rod has already been inserted into the core of Tehrans research nuclear reactor. But it was unclear if the rod contained pellets or was inserted empty, as part of a test. Scientists and researchers at the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran have succeeded in producing and testing the first sample of a nuclear fuel rod, said the announcement. The U.S. and some of its European allies accuse Iran of using its nuclear program as a cover to develop atomic weapons. Iran denies the charge, saying the program is for peaceful purposes only and is geared toward generating electricity and producing medical radioisotopes to treat cancer patients. Although the rods are easier to make, Iran is also seeking to produce the pellets with enriched uranium. But so far it is not known whether Iranian nuclear scientists have been able to overcome the technical hurdles to do so. Tehran focused on domestic production of nuclear fuel rods and pellets in 2010, after talks with the West on a nuclear fuel swap deal ended in failure as Iran backed down on shipping a major part of its stock of enriched uranium abroad in return for fuel. The announcement on the fuel rod came just a day after Tehran proposed a new round of talks on its nuclear program with six world powers. Marks another step to producing atomic weapons Associated PressJERUSALEM Images of ultra-Orthodox Jews dressing up as Nazi concentration camp inmates during a protest drew widespread condemnation Sunday and added a new twist to a simmering battle over growing extremism inside Israels insular ultraOrthodox community. Religious extremists are facing increasing criticism for their efforts to separate men and women in public spaces, and Saturdays protest, in which a child mimicked an iconic photo of a terrified Jewish boy in the Warsaw Ghetto, added to the outrage. Thousands of ultra-Orthodox Jews gathered Saturday night in Jerusalem to protest what they say is a nationwide campaign directed against their lifestyle. Protesters called Israeli policemen Nazis, wore yellow Star of David patches with the word Jude German for Jew dressed their children in striped black-andwhite uniforms associated with Nazi concentration camps and transported them in the back of a truck. Israels Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial denounced the use of Nazi imagery as disgraceful, and several other survivors groups and politicians condemned the acts. We must leave the Holocaust and its symbols outside the arguments in Israeli society, said Moshe Zanbar, chairman of the main umbrella group for Holocaust survivors in Israel. This harms the memory of the Holocaust. Six million Jews were killed by German Nazis and Holocaust survivors blast Nazi garb at protest New twist added to extreme debate among Israelis Associated PressSEATTLE Heres another reason for holdouts to join the social media site Facebook: Its a great place to find a kidney. Between the kid photos and reminiscences about high school, more and more pleas for help from people with failing kidneys are popping up. Facebook and other social media sites are quickly becoming a go-to place to find a generous person with a kidney to spare, according to the people asking for help and some national organizations that facilitate matches. Damon Brown found a kidney on Facebook after telling his story on a special page the Seattle dad created under the name, Damon Kidney. His friends and family forwarded the link to everyone they knew and on Jan. 3 a woman his wife has known for years, but not someone they consider a close family friend, will be giving him a kidney. She said it wasnt really for me. It was for my kids, because they deserve to have a dad around, said Brown, 38. Browns story is not unique, said April Paschke, a spokeswoman for the United Network for Organ Sharing, a private nonprofit organization that manages the nations organ transplant system for the federal government. We see more and more people matched up by social media, she said. Its an extension of the way we communicate. Before we found the Internet, people found other ways: through a church bulletin, word of mouth or an advertisement even. This past year, a man in Michigan also found a kidney donor through Facebook, and a Florida woman found one through Craigslist. Damon Brown admits he was a little embarrassed to ask for help so publicly. Except for telling close friends and family, the Seattle father of two young boys had been keeping his illness pretty quiet. He was on the official transplant list and had started mobile dialysis through Northwest Kidney Centers but Brown was seeing his health deteriorate he was constantly tired and achy. He couldnt sit on the bed to tell bedtime stories to 5year-old Julian and 3-year-old Theo because he had to stay close to his dialysis machine. Im a strong guy, but I would have to say, its been rough this year, he said. Brown had put himself on the long wait list for a kidney from a deceased donor, knowing he would have to wait at least three years before he was called. Unlikely Facebook find For some in need, social media is route to new kidney their collaborators during World War II. About 200,000 aging survivors of the Holocaust live in Israel. Ultra-Orthodox Jews make up 10 percent of Israels population. In the past, they have generally confined their strict lifestyle to their own neighborhoods. But they have become increasingly aggressive in trying to impose their ways on others, as their population has grown and spread to new areas. Charges of US bias in Taiwan election TAIPEI, Taiwan Washington is lavishing attention on Taiwan, stepping up official visits and saying it will likely allow visa-free travel to the U.S. The moves are raising suspicions that America is trying to influence next months tight presidential election. The U.S. denies doing so, but political scientist Edward Chen says the timing of the visa announcement a few weeks before the Jan. 14 poll carried political connotations. Whether or not Washington intends to boost incumbent President Ma Ying-jeou, its recent moves reinforce perceptions that the U.S. sees its interests better served by him.

Andruw Jones staying with YankeesNEW YORK Andruw Jones is staying with the New York Yankees, agreeing to a $2 million, one-year contract that allows him to earn another $1.45 million in performance bonuses. The deal, agreed to Friday, is subject to a physical. Jones signed with the Yankees last winter to provide a righthanded bat off the bench and hit .247 with 13 homers and 33 RBIs in 222 plate appearances. A fivetime All-Star and 10-time Gold Glove, he played 39 games in left, 19 in right and 16 at designated hitter, In addition to his base salary, Jones can earn $45,000 each for 100 and 125 plate appearances, $70,000 apiece for 150, 175, 200 and 225, $170,000 each for 250 and 275, $220,000 apiece for 300 and 325 and $300,000 for 350. Bonds has until March to file argumentsSAN FRANCISCO Barry Bonds has until March 21 to file written arguments in his appeal to overturn his obstruction of justice conviction. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in setting a briefing schedule, said federal prosecutors will have until April 20 to respond. After that, Bonds lawyers will have another 14 days to file a reply brief if they choose to do so. Bonds appeal will be randomly assigned to a three-judge panel that will hear oral arguments this year. A decision is not likely until 2013. The briefing schedule was contained in a brief order filed by the 9th Circuit on Dec. 22, the day Bonds filed his notice of appeal with the lower court. March 21 will be the first anniversary of the start of Bonds trial. The home run king was sentenced Dec. 16 by U.S. District Judge Susan Illston for his April conviction of a charge of giving an evasive answer to a federal grand jury in 2003 that was investigating steroids distribution. The jury failed to reach a unanimous agreement on three counts accusing Bonds of making false statements when he denied using performance-enhancing drugs and said he allowed only doctors to inject him. Those charges were dropped in August. Bonds, a seven-time NL MVP, was sentenced to 30 days of home confinement, two years of probation, 250 hours of community service in youth-related activities and a $4,000 fine. MSG, MSG+ gone from Time WarnerNEW YORK Subscribers of Time Warner Cable woke up New Years morning to find the sports channels MSG Network and MSG+ missing from their cable TV line-up. The New York cable company says fans may miss games featuring the New York Knicks, Rangers and Islanders; the Buffalo Sabres; and New Jersey Devils. Thats because it has failed to reach an agreement with the MSG networks owner, Madison Square Garden Co. It is the latest spat between a cable company and a channel provider that underscores the friction on both sides over the fees carriers pay for channels. According to Time Warner Cable, MSG wanted a 53 percent increase in the rates it charges the cable network for its games. Time Warner said this demand came after the two companies had already agreed to a 6.5 percent rate increase last year.From wire reports M ICHAEL M AKSYMICZ CorrespondentGirls weightlifting came into being in 1995 before it was ever a sanctioned sport. Title IX was legislated in 1972 and finalized in 1975, but the Pirates did not have a pressing audience to participate. Coach Earl Bramlett, one of the co-founders of this sport in Citrus County, started working with core groups to generate genuine interest. There have been successes among some of the Lady Pirates, said Crystal River head coach Randy Owens. Rebecca Branch a few years ago qualified for the state meet. Last year Elisa Alysa Porro qualified in the state meet in the 169-pound weight class. She finished midpack, which was a very good achievement. In the past, we managed to qualify one girl for state competition. My goal is to get 2-3 girls to state, Owens added. In various weight classes, Martina Tafoya, Laynee Nadal and Emily Laga are potential candidates who could qualify for state, but it is uncertain that any will make the grade, but possibilities exist. The motivation for any Lady Pirate to get into weightlifting is it can help in other sports. The stronger you are, the better you are able to compete in other sporting activities, Owens said. Right now, I have a nucleus of 15 girls covering all weight classes who work very hard to make this a success for themselves. The girl participants for Crystal River weightlifting are lower in number than the other two Citrus County public schools. The fact that total enrollment of Crystal River is about 30 to 40 percent less than the other two schools impacts the number of girls who could participate in this sport for the Lady Pirates. Weightlifting: Lady Pirates small squad strives for success Associated Press Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Ronde Barber walks off the field Sunday after Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones scored a touchdown in the first half in Atlanta. For Bucs, disappointing end to a disappointing year Associated PressATLANTA The Atlanta Falcons grabbed the lead and the No. 5 seed in the playoffs and wouldnt let go. Julio Jones caught two touchdown passes in a span of 26 seconds, Michael Turner ran for two scores and the Falcons used a team-record 42 first-half points to cruise to a 45-24 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday to clinch the No. 5 seed in the NFC playoffs. The Falcons (10-6) and Detroit (10-6) are the NFC wild cards. Atlanta, which beat Detroit on Oct. 23, won the tiebreaker with the Lions for the more favorable seeding. The Falcons will play at the winner of Sunday nights Dallas-New York Giants game in the first round of the playoffs. We wanted to play our final regular-season game with a lot of intensity and energy, and I think we did that in all three phases, Falcons coach Mike Smith said. Josh Freeman threw two interceptions and lost a fumble in the first half as the Buccaneers (4-12) closed their season with their 10th straight loss, leaving the status of coach Raheem Morris in doubt. The Falcons led 42-0 when they began resting starters, including quarterback Matt Ryan and Turner, late in the first half. Tampa Bay, which finished 10-6 last season and started 4-2, is left with its longest losing streak in one season in 34 years. The Buccaneers also lost 10 straight in 1977. They lost 11 straight between the 2008 and seasons. Tampa drubbed 45-24, finishes season 4-12 Associated Press New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez stands on the sideline Sunday during the final minutes in Miami. The Dolphins defeated the Jets 19-17. Jets sent home Associated PressMIAMI The New York Jets will sit out the playoffs, and thats guaranteed. The Jets failed to fulfill coach Rex Ryans pledge to win a Super Bowl title, with Sundays 19-17 loss at Miami eliminating them from the chase for an AFC wild-card berth. Mark Sanchez threw three interceptions, the last coming with the Jets threatening to take a late lead. They gave up six third-down conversions during the Dolphins 21play, 94-yard drive for their only touchdown. See JETS / Page B2 Associated Press FOXBOROUGH, Mass. T om Brady and the New England Patriots do an outstanding job rallying from behind. Theyve been getting plenty of practice. Now that the Patriots have clinched home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs by scoring the final 49 points in a 4921 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, they know it will be much harder to recover from a poor start. Every team in the playoffs is good, Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo said. To be honest, it would be tough to come back against them if were behind 21-0. Tough, but not impossible. Not with Brady leading the attack. He finished the regular season with the second most yards passing in NFL history, 5,235, after throwing for 338. Drew Brees, who last week broke Dan Marinos record of 5,084 with the Miami Dolphins in 1984, added 389 Sunday for the Saints and ended with 5,486. The Patriots (13-3) have won their last eight games. But for the third in a row, they fell behind early. They trailed Denver 13-7 in the first quarter but beat the Broncos 41-23. Then they edged the Dolphins 27-24 after trailing 17-0 at halftime. Finally, they took charge Sunday after the Bills (610) scored touchdowns on their first three possessions, drawing boos from the home fans. That changed to a steady stream of cheers as the Patriots dominated the next three quarters, scoring on seven of their next eight possessions. Id love to be able to see what it looks like when we put together 60 great minutes of football, Brady said. Today was 45, but it was better than 30 last week. And they won both games, a much more important achievement than surpassing 5,000 yards. I play this game for one reason and thats to win, Brady said. Its not something I ever (think), Man, I love throwing touchdowns, or I love throwing for yards. I love winning and that helps me sleep at night. For a while, it looked like hed be tossing and turning thanks, in large part, to a defense that set the NFL record for most yards Tight end sets yardage record in 49-21 win See PATS / Page B2

B2 M ONDAY, J ANUARY2, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE NFL FOOTBALL Broncos fall to Chiefs 7-3 Associated PressDENVER Tim Tebow fell short in his latest comeback bid, yet his Denver Broncos are still going to the playoffs. Former Bronco Kyle Orton got his revenge in leading the Kansas City Chiefs to a 7-3 win over Denver on Sunday, but its the Broncos who clinched the AFC West and is headed to the postseason. After congratulating their former starting quarterback, the Broncos celebrated the end to their six-year playoff drought once San Diego beat Oakland 38-26 later Sunday. Losers of their last three games, the Broncos finished 8-8, same as the Raiders. They win their first division title since 2005 on a tiebreaker.Ravens 24, Bengals 16 CINCINNATI Ray Rice had a pair of long touchdown runs that gave the Ravens their third AFC North title and the No. 2 seed in the playoffs. Baltimore (12-4) will get a first-round bye followed by a playoff game at home, where the Ravens are 8-0 this season. Despite the loss, the Bengals (9-7) also got into the playoffs, securing the final wild card as the Jets and Broncos also lost. Its Cincinnatis third playoff appearance in the last 21 years. With Paul Brown Stadium packed with Bengals fans for the first time all season, Rice made the biggest plays on a blustery afternoon. He had a career-best 70yard touchdown run on the fourth play. Rice also broke a 51-yard touchdown run with 5:41 to go and finished with 191 yards on 24 carries. Chargers 38, Raiders 26OAKLAND, Calif. Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes and Richard Goodman returned a kickoff 105 yards for another score as Oaklands playoff hopes ended. The Raiders (8-8) went into the final day of the season needing to win and get help to end an eight-year playoff drought. They got the assistance they needed when Denver (8-8) lost 7-3 at home to Kansas City but were unable to do their part by beating the Chargers (8-8). The Broncos won the division based on record versus common opponents. Steelers 13, Browns 9CLEVELAND Isaac Redman replaced an injured Rashard Mendenhall and ran for a touchdown as Pittsburgh limped into the AFC playoffs. Redman scored on a 7-yard run in the third quarter for the Steelers (12-4), who finished tied with Baltimore for first in the AFC North but lost the tiebreaker because the Ravens beat them twice. The Steelers had to survive two fumbles by Redman in the second half and a pass into the end zone by the Browns (412) on the final play that was batted down. Mendenhall hurt his right knee in the first quarter on a short run and didnt return. His status for the postseason is unknown. Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger passed for 221 yards on a severely sprained ankle. Jaguars 19, Colts 13 JACKSONVILLE Indianapolis locked up the top pick in Aprils NFL draft, setting the stage to select Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck. Maurice Jones-Drew ran for a seasonhigh 169 yards, clinching the NFL rushing title and breaking Fred Taylors singleseason franchise record in the Jaguars victory. The Jaguars (5-11) became the first AFC South opponent to sweep Indianapolis (2-14) since 2002 and gave outgoing owner Wayne Weaver a victory in his final game. The Colts may have been the big winners, though. Indy would have dropped to the No. 2 spot in the draft with a victory in Jacksonville. Instead, owner Jim Irsay will have the choice to draft Luck and give the team a young quarterback to join fourtime MVP Peyton Manning.Titans 23, Texans 22HOUSTON Matt Hasselbeck threw two touchdown passes and the Titans kept alive their playoff hopes. The Titans (9-7) have their first winning record since 2008 in Mike Munchaks first season, but their postseason fate depended on the outcome of later games in Cincinnati, Oakland and Denver. Tennessee got some early help when the Jets lost in Miami. Houston (10-6) will head into its first postseason on a three-game losing streak. The Texans were locked into the No. 3 seed in the AFC playoffs and coach Gary Kubiak played mostly reserves in the second half. Rookie starter T.J. Yates left the game after one series with a shoulder injury and was replaced by Jake Delhomme. Kubiak said Yates could have returned if necessary. The Texans pulled within a point late in the game on a 5-yard TD pass by Delhomme, but failed on a 2-point conversion that would have won it. Saints 45, Panthers 17 NEW ORLEANS Drew Brees threw for 389 yards and five touchdowns, and New Orleans set a slew of NFL and club records. The NFL single-season records set by the Saints (13-3), who head into the playoffs on an eight-game winning streak, included offensive yards with 7,474, team yards passing with 5,347 and first downs with 416. Brees, who was 28 of 35, finished with a record 468 completions this season, breaking Peyton Mannings 2010 mark of 450. He finished the season completing 71.6 percent of his passes, breaking his own 2009 NFL record 70.6 completion percentage. Tight end Jimmy Graham had 97 yards receiving, finishing with an NFL record 1,310 for a tight end. The Panthers finished 6-10. Packers 45, Lions 41 GREEN BAY, Wis. Backup quarterback Matt Flynn threw a touchdown pass to Jermichael Finley with 1:10 left to finish off his record-setting day of 480 yards and six TD passes. With Aaron Rodgers resting for the playoffs, Flynn set club single-game records for yards passing and touchdowns. It was an ideal afternoon for the Packers (15-1) who got to rest their starting quarterback and several other bigname players without losing momentum. Flynn barely got the Packers past Matthew Stafford, who threw for 520 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions. Playoff-bound Detroit (10-6), has lost 21 straight road games to the Packers. Cardinals 23, Seahawks 20 (OT)GLENDALE, Ariz. Larry Fitzgeralds spectacular one-handed grab set help up a 28-yard field goal by Jay Feely to give Arizona its fourth overtime victory at home in the last nine weeks of the season. Arizona (8-8) finished the season 7-2 after a six-game losing streak left it 1-6. Seattle (7-9) had rallied to tie the game after trailing 20-10 early in the fourth quarter. Fitzgerald caught nine passes for 149 yards after one reception for 2 yards in the first half. John Skelton completed 22 of 40 for 271 yards and a touchdown with one interception for Arizona.Bears 17, Vikings 13MINNEAPOLIS Charles Tillmans interception return in the second quarter gave Chicago (8-8) the lead for good, and the Bears stopped their five-game losing streak despite 3 1/2 sacks by Jared Allen. Allen finished the season with 22 sacks, behind Michael Strahans NFL mark of 22 1/2 for the Giants in 2001. Joe Webb relieved Christian Ponder at quarterback for the Vikings (3-13) for the third time in the last month, but the scrambling Webb wasnt able to keep the Vikings from matching the worst record in franchise history.Eagles 34, Redskins 10 PHILADELPHIA Michael Vick threw three touchdown passes, including a 62yarder to DeSean Jackson, as the Eagles closed the season with four straight wins. The Eagles (8-8) are hoping to carry the momentum from their strong finish into next season. But they cant be satisfied after entering the year with Super Bowl aspirations. Its the first time since 2007 that Philadelphia didnt qualify for the postseason and just the fourth time in coach Andy Reids 13 seasons. The Eagles set a franchise record for total yards on offense with 6,386. The Redskins (5-11) finished in last place in the NFC East for a franchise-worst fourth straight year. It was Mike Shanahans worst full season in 18 years as a coach. 49ers 34, Rams 27 ST. LOUIS Michael Crabtree caught two touchdown passes, one from kicker David Akers on a perfectly executed trick play, and San Francisco wrapped up the No. 2 playoff seed in the NFC and a firstround bye. Crabtree and Vernon Davis had big days for a team short of pass catchers and Tarell Brown had a pair of interceptions that led to touchdowns as the 49ers (13-3) beat the Rams (2-14) for the second time the last five games.

The previous mark of 4,541 was set by the Atlanta Falcons in 1995. The Bills took a 21-0 lead in the first quarter on a 4-yard run by Tashard Choice and Ryan Fitzpatricks scoring passes of 18 yards to Stevie Johnson and 15 yards to C.J. Spiller. They couldnt stop us, wide receiver David Nelson said. Johnson was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct when he lifted his jersey to reveal a T-shirt with the words Happy New Y ear. After that, he was benched by coach Chan Gailey. The pass to Spiller gave Fitzpatrick 13 completions in 16 attempts for 156 yards and two touchdowns. At that point, Brady had thrown twice, both incompletions. He finished with 23 completions in 35 attempts for three touchdowns two to Rob Gronkowski and one interception. Fitzpatrick ended at 29 for 46 for 307 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions. Gronkowski set the single-season record for tight ends with 1,327 yards receiving after gaining 108 on eight catches. That broke the mark of 1,310 set earlier Sunday by Jimmy Graham of the Saints. The previous mark of 1,290 was set in 1980 by Kellen Winslow of the San Diego Chargers. The record came on a 22-yard completion from backup Brian Hoyer with 1:30 left, a play that Belichick called to give him a shot at the record. It was cool, unbelievable, Gronkowski said of having that chance. It says a lot about this team. The Jets (8-8) came into the game needing a win along with losses by three other teams to reach the playoffs. Instead, they finished the season with three consecutive defeats, a big step backward for a team that reached the AFC championship game each of the past two years. Ryan said he didnt regret his guarantee, even if the Jets fell way short. Im always going to chase the Super Bowl, Ryan said. I know I get criticized for it beyond belief, but if you dont, then youre probably a loser, OK? Im not a loser. Soap opera fodder for the offseason came out of the Jets final drive, when receiver and captain Santonio Holmes was benched. Running back LaDainian Tomlinson said teammates were unhappy with Holmes effort, demeanor and body language. Its tough for guys to follow a captain that kind of behaves in that manner, Tomlinson said. Youve got to lead by example, and youve got to play your tail off until the last play. Holmes was held without a catch for the first time in his 88-game career. NFL active sacks leader Jason Taylor, playing his final game, harried Sanchez into an interception and was carried off the field after the game. It was a rare moment of celebration for the Dolphins (6-10), who completed their third consecutive losing season, their longest such stretch since the 1960s. They fired coach Tony Sparano on Dec. 12 and have begun the search for a successor. Another small consolation: Miami tied the NFL record for most wins after a 0-7 start.

Associated PressHOUSTON Ryan Tannehill threw for 329 yards and a touchdown and Ben Malena ran for two more scores to lead Texas A&M to a 33-22 win over Northwestern on Saturday in the Meineke Car Care Bowl. Northwestern led 7-3 early in the second quarter before A&M reeled off 27 straight points to take a decisive lead and then fight off a late rally to capture its first bowl victory since 2001. Texas A&M broke a fivegame bowl losing streak in a win the team dedicated to fired coach Mike Sherman and offensive lineman Joseph Villavisencio, who was killed in a car accident last week. Malena ran for 77 yards, filling in ably for Cyrus Gray, who missed his second straight game with a stress fracture in his left shoulder. Northwestern hasnt won a bowl game since the 1949 Rose Bowl, a span of nine losses. Liberty BowlCincinnati 31, Vanderbilt 24 MEMPHIS, Tenn. Isaiah Pead ran for 149 yards and a touchdown, and Ralph David Abernathy IVs 90-yard kickoff return early in the fourth quarter put Cincinnati ahead to stay. The Bearcats (10-3) capped the season with their third straight victory. But the co-Big East Conference champs had to work to put away Vanderbilt (6-7), a team that tied for fourth in the Southeastern Conference, despite forcing three turnovers and coming up with two sacks. The Commodores led 21-17 when Abernathy became the first Cincinnati player to return a kickoff for a TD in the programs 13 bowl appearances. Vandys Archibald Barnes blocked Tony Milianos 39yard field goal with 3:58 left, giving the Commodores the ball with plenty of time to go ahead. Nick Temple picked off a Larry Smith pass with 3:15 remaining, and Pead sealed the victory with a 12-yard TD run with 1:52 left. Sun Bowl Utah 30, Georgia Tech 27 (OT) EL PASO, Texas John White plowed into the end zone from 8 yards out to give Utah a victory. Justin Moore kicked a 34yard field goal in Georgia Techs overtime possession to take a three-point lead, but White finished a 115-yard rushing day with the gamewinning score on his 26th carry. The Utes (8-5) tied it in regulation when Jon Hays hit DeVonte Christopher with a 28-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-14 with 1:32 left in the fourth quarter. The Yellow Jackets (8-5) drove to the Utah 31 with 2 seconds left, but David Scully missed a 48-yard field-goal attempt as time expired. Georgia Tech has lost seven straight bowl games. Hays went 15 for 31 for 193 yards. Georgia Techs Preston Lyons, who came in with only 39 carries, rushed for a careerbest 140 yards on 18 carries and Tevin Washington passed for 137 yards and ran for 97. Fight Hunger Bowl Illinois 20, UCLA 14 SAN FRANCISCO Terry Hawthorne returned an interception 39 yards for Illinois first touchdown late in the third quarter and Illini snapped a six-game losing streak. Nathan Scheelhaase added a 60-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Jenkins midway through the fourth quarter to seal the first victory for Illinois (7-6) since beating Indiana 12 weeks ago. The game between two sixwin teams who have already fired their head coaches matched the underwhelming expectations as there was little excitement before Hawthornes third-quarter touchdown that gave Illinois its first lead. UCLA (6-8) was held to 18 yards rushing in its third straight loss. Kevin Prince threw two TD passes, including one in the closing minute to Nelson Rosario after the game had been decided. Chick-Fil-A Bowl Auburn 43, Virginia 24 ATLANTA Onterio McCalebb scored on a 3-yard run and 25-yard pass while subbing for suspended star running back Mike Dyer and Auburn beat Virginia in its highest scoring game of the season. Auburn won despite losing quarterback Clint Moseley to an ankle injury early in the first quarter. Auburn (8-5) also had big plays on special teams, blocking two punts and recovering an onside kick. Kris Burd caught two touchdown passes for Virginia (8-5). One year after winning the national championship and losing Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton Auburn absorbed lopsided losses to LSU, Georgia and Alabama in the secondhalf of the regular season. The offensive outburst came in Auburns last game with offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn, who has been hired as the Arkansas State coach.S PORTSC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, J ANUARY2, 2012 B3 744 SE US Hwy. 19, Crystal River, FL 34429 353-794-3888 17 Hi-Def TVs Full Liquor Bar 20 Beers on Tap 40 Bottled Beers 0 0 0 A 3 Q 4 All Sports, All Packages All The Time!

Associated Press Auburn running back Onterio McCalebb escapes the reach of Virginia defensive end Cam Johnson on Saturday during the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta. A&M, Auburn win bowls Associated PressGAINESVILLE, Fla. Florida coach Amanda Butler isnt looking forward to watching the tape from Sundays 59-56 loss to No. 6 Kentucky. Especially the end of the first half. We didnt do a good job of maintaining our composure and being aware of what we were trying to do, Butler said. Deana Allen had 14 points and Ndidi Madu finished with 11 for Florida (10-4, 0-1 Southeastern Conference), which shot 32.8 percent and committed 23 turnovers. Jennifer George added 10 points and 11 rebounds, and Jaterra Bonds also scored 10. Georges jumper gave Florida a 29-27 lead late in the first half, but Adia Mathies made two 3-pointers in a 15-second span to send Kentucky into the break with a 33-29 lead. The Wildcats (12-2, 1-0) open the home portion of their SEC schedule Thursday against Arkansas while Florida, which had won its three previous games, visits Ole Miss on Thursday.No. 7 Tennessee 73, Auburn 52AUBURN, Ala. Meighan Simmons scored 20 points and the No. 7 Tennessee women pulled away late in opening Southeastern Conference play Sunday with a 73-52 victory over Auburn. The Lady Vols (9-3, 1-0 SEC) closed the game on a 19-6 run to turn a tight contest into a blowout and win for the 27th time in the last 30 meetings with the Tigers (8-6, 0-1). Shekinna Stricklen added 17 points on 5-of-18 shooting for Tennessee. Glory Johnson had 14 points and 13 rebounds and Alicia Manning scored 10 points. Camille Glymph led Auburn with 21 points, making 5 of 10 from 3-point range. The Lady Vols struggled from the field, shooting just 32 percent (21 of 65) but gave Auburn fits on the boards and with a trapping defense that allowed few open shots. Tennessee forced 25 turnovers and had 12 steals, and the Lady Vols dominated in rebounding 49-31. No. 17 Georgia 67, Arkansas 57 ATHENS, Ga. Center Jasmine Hassell had 19 points and No. 17 Georgia made 10 3-pointers in a 67-57 victory over Arkansas on Sunday in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams. The Lady Bulldogs (12-2, 10) got 15 points from Anne Marie Armstrong and 12 apiece from Meredith Mitchell and Khaalidah Miller. Sarah Watkins had 15 points for Arkansas (11-2, 0-1) and Ceira Ricketts added 14. The Razorbacks built a 16-9 lead in the first 6 1/2 minutes. But after hitting eight of their first 15 field goals, the Razorbacks missed their next 13 shots from the field. Georgia went on a 13-0 run to go up 23-18 on a tip-in by Mitchell with 5:10 left in the half. The Lady Bulldogs took a 52-34 lead at 13:26 of the second half on Hassells turnaround jumper. Hassells three-point play at 5:16 gave Georgia its biggest lead at 66-46. Kentucky women edge UF 59-56

Ryan Anderson scored 24 points and led a fourth-quarter rally that sent the Orlando Magic past the Toronto Raptors 102-96 on Sunday night. The Magic trailed by as many as 16 points, but went on a 16-0 run in the final period. Orlando shot 4-for-5 on 3-pointers during the burst, with Anderson making two of them, as the Magic took a 94-88 lead with 3:05 left. Dwight Howard had 19 points and 15 rebounds for the Magic, who have won four straight since a season-opening loss to Oklahoma City. J.J. Redick added 21 points and Hedo Turkoglu had 15 points and seven assists. Andrea Bargnani paced the Raptors with 28 points, and Jose Calderon had 18 points and 13 assists.

Celtics 94, Wizards 86WASHINGTON Rajon Rondo had 18 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds while Kevin Garnett had 24 points and nine rebounds to lead the Boston Celtics over the winless Washington Wizards 94-86 on Sunday night. The victory was the Celtics second straight after losing their first three. Washington is 0-4. After losing their opener by six to New Jersey, the Wizards have lost the last three by 47 points. The Celtics took the lead in the first three minutes and increased the margin to 19 points. Boston led by at least seven throughout the second half. Washington, which lost five straight to open the 2008-09 season, could match that start Monday in Boston when the teams play again. John Wall, who was 10 for 37 from the field in Washingtons first three games, was 6-for-13. He had 19 points, eight assists and seven rebounds. Mavericks 99, Timberwolves 82MINNEAPOLIS Kevin Love had 25 points and 17 rebounds and hit two huge 3s in the fourth quarter to help the Minnesota Timberwolves beat the Dallas Mavericks 99-82 on Sunday night, ending an 18game losing streak dating to last season. The young Wolves closed the game with a 15-0 run and this win has been a long time coming. They lost the last 15 games of last season and the first three of this year, meaning its been 295 days since the franchises last victory. Ricky Rubio added 14 points and seven assists and Luke Ridnour scored 11 for the Timberwolves (1-3), who were winners for the first time under new coach Rick Adelman.

After a seesaw battle for most of the final period, the Nuggets scored the final 11 points to pull out the win. Los Angeles missed its last 11 shots of the first half and shot just 32 percent at the break. The Nuggets struggled from the field, too, missing all nine of their 3-point shots before the break, but they surged at the end of the second quarter.

The New York Giants dominated the first half of their NFC East showdown with the Dallas Cowboys, taking a 21-0 lead Sunday night as Ahmad Bradshaw scored twice. New York rallied from a late 12-point deficit to beat the Cowboys three weeks ago and take over first place in the division. Each team went 1-1 since to set up one of the biggest matchups in the history of this 50-year rivalry. Eli Manning hooked up with rising star receiver Victor Cruz for a 76-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Bradshaw scored on a 5yard run in the second period to cap a 10-play drive aided by a 14-yard pass interference call on cornerback Alan Ball. It could have been bigger, but Lawrence Tynes missed a 40-yard field goal wide right. Bradshaw eluded Abram Elam in the backfield to scoot to his right and into the end zone at the end of a 10-play drive that made it 14-0. The Cowboys then got moving for the first time, only to bog down when Tony Romo, playing with an injured right hand, moved past the line of scrimmage to make a third-down completion. Dallas had to punt and New York took advantage. Bradshaws 29-yard run sparked an 80-yard drive late in the second quarter. Bradshaw eluded Bradie James over the middle for his second TD, a 10-yarder. Dallas missed about a dozen tackles in the first 30 minutes. Dan Bailey missed a 52-yard field goal as the half ended. Neither team did much offensively early on a wet but relatively balmy winters night the rain stopped midway through the first quarter, then started up again in the second period. The Giants got pressure on Romo, and he was trapped for a 12-yard loss by Jason Pierre-Paul on Dallas second series. That gave the second-year end 16 1/2 sacks. Chris Jones punt went out of bounds on the Giants 4, and then New York victimized cornerback Terence Newman twice.

Associated Press Karen Brill finishes a floragraph, a picture made from plant parts, of her son Aric Brill on Dec. 17 at Palm Mortuary in Las Vegas. Aric Brill was killed by gunmen in 2009 and will be honored on a float in the Tournament of Roses Parade because he was an organ donor. Associated PressJERUSALEM Yaffa Yarkoni, a singer who belted out wartime songs only to become a critic of the Israeli military late in life, died Sunday after a battle with Alzheimers disease. She was 86. Yarkoni went from entertaining soldiers as a wartime songbird to criticizing the Israeli militarys treatment of Palestinians during their uprising last decade. After chiding the military in 2002, Yarkoni was branded a traitor by soldiers families, received death threats and had a gala tribute to her career canceled. A group of artists held an alternative event to support her freedom of expression. The furor arose when she made comparisons between an Israeli military operation in the West Bank and the Holocaust. We are a nation that went through the Holocaust. How can we do things like this to another nation? she told Israels Army Radio. In an interview she gave to The Associated Press following those remarks, Yarkoni said she was tired of war, of dead young men and heartbroken mothers. I am tired. For 51 years I am singing about Israel all over the world, telling stories about how it was before the first war, the second war, every war. War, war, war. They call me the singer of wars. I dont like this name. I want to be the singer of Israel, she said. Yarkonis songs tell of Israels pioneering days following the 1948 war that led to its creation, a war in which she served as a radio operator. For years, the khaki-clad Yarkoni was a fixture at Israeli army bases as she entertained soldiers, and many of her songs became classics that still resonate with Israelis and are performed at remembrance day ceremonies. In 1998, she received the prestigious Israel Prize for Hebrew song. While the Israel Defense Forces conquered enemy positions, she conquered the soldiers hearts, said President Shimon Peres, who called for a moment of silence in Yarkonis memory. Yarkoni faded from the public stage over the past decade, and in the end, her powerful music obscured her contentious statements. Associated PressLAS VEGAS A Las Vegas teenager who said he wanted to become an organ donor before dying in an apparently random shooting will be honored in the Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif. Aric Brill was killed in an unsolved 2009 shooting outside a Las Vegas party. The 16-year-old boy, who was a junior at Global Community High School, told his mother not long before his death that he was willing to become an organ donor. He said: If I cant use my organs anymore, I want someone else to have them, Karen Brill told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. It is really important to me that we had that discussion. It would have been really difficult to make that decision if we hadnt. I knew Aric had said yes. The boys wish was ultimately granted: Six people received his organs, the newspaper reported. His floral image will grace a Donate Life parade float Monday along with 71 other organ donors. Donate Life is a nonprofit alliance of U.S. organizations that promote organ, eye and tissue donations. By honoring these 72 individuals, we hope to remind people that donors have the power to save up to eight lives and heal 50 more through organ, eye and tissue donation, said Bryan Stewart, chairman of the Donate Life float committee. Every donor counts when the waiting list for life-saving organs continues to grow while the circumstances for organ donation to be possible are so rare. Karen and Don Brill say the honor lifts their spirits. It gives us a chance to be part of something really positive and uplifting, Karen Brill said. We will be with other families in the same position. It wont be a mourning or grieving time for us. The Brills said their boys organ donation brought something positive after the senseless shooting Feb. 20, 2009. Witnesses told police members of an unknown street gang accosted Brill and another boy. Police said the shooter pulled out two guns and shot the boys as they tried to flee. The other victim, now an Army paratrooper, was wounded but survived. Neither had any gang affiliations. Police have made no arrests in the shooting. The Brills hope publicity will encourage more witnesses to come forward to identify the shooter. Since Arics death, his mother has worked to promote organ donations. I always knew Aric was different, she said. I always knew he was going to be something great. If this is where his legacy took him, its my responsibility to take it from there. Memorial float C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Birthday : In order to enhance your material base in the year ahead, you must be hardworking, prudent and practical over long periods of time. Conditions in general favor you when youre willing to do your part, but theres no room for wastefulness. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Anyone who is only interested in him or herself will annoy you far more than usual. Steer clear of just such a person, so you dont fly off the handle and look bad. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) The best way to ruin the familys tranquility is to introduce a topic that is emotionally charged and sure to cause a kerfuffle. Keep your piquant little observations to yourself. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Before you jump in and support someone who looks like the underdog, be sure you know what the situation is all about. Theres a chance that you could back an unworthy candidate. Aries (March 21-April 19) Be your own person instead of risking your efforts and resources on what another thinks you should do. No one knows your affairs better than you do, so follow your own thinking. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Before judging or condemning another for his or her faults, be mindful of your own. If youre tolerant of their imperfections, theyll overlook yours. Gemini (May 21-June 20) You would do well to keep bystanders out of your private battles. Without realizing it, they could turn a merely abrasive situation into something far more destructive and volatile. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Even if you have to spend a little time with someone who rubs you the wrong way, make the most out of doing so. If you keep your cool, youll walk away undamaged. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Be particularly careful about your conduct when around someone whose respect is important to you. Being too blunt or erratic could severely impair your image. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) In order to get your points across to an individual who has rejected your ideas in the past, you need to know your subject well and be extremely prepared to make a presentation. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Make certain those to whom you delegate an important assignment have the ability to successfully carry things off as needed. The wrong choice could set you back. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Normally you have little problem working in conjunction with another. However, it might be wise to avoid any type of entanglements at this juncture. Play it safe and operate on your own. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) That row you intend to hoe may be littered with far more rocks and potsherds than you anticipate. Unless you clean things up first, your path could be quite treacherous.

In the coming year, therell be another choice, at least for those prepared to spend big. LG Electronics Inc. says its planning to sell a 55-inch set based on organic light-emitting diodes, or OLEDs. The Korean company is set to show it off at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, which starts Jan. 10. Samsung Electronics Co., LGs Korean rival, will also reveal a nearly market-ready OLED TV at the show, according to three people with knowledge of the matter. They spoke on condition of anonymity because Samsung has yet to make an announcement. Its website says CES announcements will come Jan. 9. Tim Alessi, director of home electronics development at LGs USA arm, said its set will likely go on sale in the fourth quarter. The company isnt revealing the price. Paul Gagnon, an analyst at DisplaySearch, estimates that OLED sets will start out above $5,000. The screen technology is in use in high-end smartphones and provides deeply saturated colors and high contrast. However, its been very difficult to make larger screens with consistent results. In late 2007, Sony Corp. started selling an 11-inch OLED TV for about $2,500, but it never followed it up with a bigger model. Since then, LG and Samsung have shown prototype OLED TVs at the annual CES show, but havent revealed any marketing plans. Apart from providing improved picture quality, OLED TVs can be very thin. LGs set will be 4 millimeters thick and weight 16.5 pounds. LG to sell 55-inch TV using new ultra-thin tech Associated Press Singer Yaffa Yarkoni, seen in May 2002, died Sunday at the age of 86.

B6 M ONDAY, J ANUARY2, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT One of the hardest techniques to learn is hand evaluation. We tend to rely almost solely on high-card points, with some distribution points thrown in occasionally. That keeps us in good stead on many deals, but bidding good low-pointcount slams still eludes many pairs. Take todays South hand. North opens one heart, East overcalls two diamonds, South responds two spades, and North raises to three spades. What should South do now? Also, how should South play in six spades after a diamond lead? Norths three-spade rebid showed a minimum opening; with extra values he would have jumped to four spades. The South hand, though, despite having only a minimum opening in point-count terms, is very strong because of the 10or 11-card fit, two aces, a potentially useful singleton and only five losers (deducting one for the excellent fit). However, to launch immediately into Blackwood would be a tad but only a tad optimistic. South should suggest a slam to partner by rebidding four clubs, which is a control-bid (cue-bid) showing that ace. North has a slam-suitable hand with an excellent suit. He should control-bid four hearts. Now South could just bid six spades real bridge players dont use Blackwood! South should win the diamond lead and cash his spade king. When he sees the 3-0 break, he plays off dummys three heart honors, discarding one diamond and one club, and ruffs a heart in his hand. (It wouldnt matter if West could overruff.) Dummy is entered with a spade to the ace, and Souths remaining low club is discarded on the last heart.

They are hardworking and smart, and any parent would be proud of their achievements. I began dating my husband five years after his divorce, and we married three years later. However, when I was supposed to meet his daughters, they told him they would chase me away if I visited. The relationship went downhill from there. They threw my possessions into the backyard while we were not home, threatened to kill me, vandalized our house, tried to run me over, ambushed me with a bucket of water when I stepped out the door, were cruel to my dog and more. We moved 2,000 miles away. Now that our parents are getting old, we are thinking of moving back to our hometown to be near our families. But I dont know how to handle his daughters. They text, phone and email their dad, but never acknowledge my existence. We send birthday and Christmas presents from both of us. Their mother and I get along well, but she only chastises them by saying they are exhibiting inappropriate behavior.They still live with her, and I think she is intimidated. My husband owns a farm nearby and we have been trying to sell it, but the daughters use that property and chase all prospective buyers away. We have offered to sell it to them at a good price, but why should they buy it when they can use it for free? We cant afford two house payments. My husband has no leverage with them. He wont do anything that could get them into legal trouble that may affect the rest of their lives. I dont know what to do. Anguished in Oregon Dear Oregon: These spoiled brats have been out of control for years because they have two ineffectual, spineless parents, and there never have been any consequences for their behavior. Your husband can sell the farm by having a broker handle prospective buyers by appointment only. But make it clear to your husband that if they vandalize your home, threaten you or hurt your pets, you will call the police. And he should convey that message to his errant daughters. Dear Annie: My sister Rose and I are as different as night and day. She also is 17 years older than I am. I am now in my late 40s, and although Rose and I get along, there is one thing that causes me grief. Every time we speak, she feels the need to remind me of what a spoiled brat I was when I was a teenager. Shes right. But Im not that way any longer. She makes it clear that she still is not OK with this, so Ive apologized for my teenaged self. Repeatedly. It hurts to know that she cant let it go. I truly love my sister. My question is, should I confront Rose? If not, how do I deal with the continued belittling? Little Sister in California Dear Sister: It might help to talk to Rose. Remind her that you are no longer a spoiled brat, and ask why she is having such a hard time forgiving your teenaged self. Perhaps there is a reason she keeps bringing it up. If she cannot recognize her obsessive behavior or stop it, the best you can do is say, Yes, Rose,and then change the subject. Dear Annie: Heres my two cents about dogsnames. While visiting my daughter, her 4-yearold neighbor asked me, What is your name?When I replied, Lucy,he said, My friend has a dog named Lucy. Unless you make up an original name for your pet, someone will have the same name. I discovered that Lucy is among the top names for dogs. I still laugh about it. Lighten up, people.

Cranky croc SYDNEY A giant saltwater crocodile named Elvis with an apparent affinity for household machinery charged at an Australian reptile park worker Wednesday before stealing his lawn mower. Tim Faulkner, operations manager at the Australian Reptile Park, north of Sydney, was one of three workers tending to the lawn in Elvis enclosure when he heard reptile keeper Billy Collett yelp. Faulkner looked up to see the 16-foot, 1,100-pound crocodile lunging out of its lagoon at Collett, who warded the creature off with his mower. Before we knew it, the croc had the mower above his head, Faulkner said. He got his jaws around the top of the mower and picked it up and took it underwater with him. The workers quickly left the enclosure. Elvis, meanwhile, showed no signs of relinquishing his new toy and guarded it closely all morning. Eventually, Faulkner realized he had no other choice but to go back for the mower. Collett lured Elvis to the opposite end of the lagoon with a heaping helping of kangaroo meat while Faulkner plunged, fully clothed, into the water. Before grabbing the mower, however, he had to search the bottom of the lagoon for two 3-inch teeth Elvis lost during the encounter. He quickly found them and escaped from the pool, unharmed and with mower in tow. Though many may question the wisdom of going after a couple of teeth with a massive crocodile lurking just feet away, Faulkner said finding them was critical. They clog up the filter systems, he said. And, he said, Theyre a nice souvenir. Elvis has a history of crankiness and has lunged at staff before, though this is the first time he has stolen something from one of the workers. The croc was initially captured in the northern Australian city of Darwin, where he had been attacking fishing boats. He was then moved to a crocodile farm, where he proceeded to kill his two crocodile girlfriends. In 2008, he was moved to the reptile park, where he has enjoyed solitary confinement in his own enclosure. When they are the dominant croc, theyre just full of testosterone, Faulkner said. Hes got his beautiful own yard, he wants to be a solitary creature. Hes happy. Despite having to give up the lawn mower, Elvis was clearly pleased with himself, Faulkner said. Hes beaten us today ... hes kingpin, Faulkner said. Hes going to be walking around with his chest puffed out all day. As for the staff at the reptile park? I cant lie, the bosses are not going to be happy about the cost of a new lawn mower, Faulkner said with a laugh. (But) we love it. No ones injured ... and when you get scared and it all turns out to be good, its actually quite enjoyable. Nude drive-throughGALESBURG, Ill. Two people who pulled up at a McDonalds drivethrough window in western Illinois completely naked face public indecency charges. Police in Galesburg said a 19-yearold El Paso man and a 21-year-old Galesburg woman have been released from Knox County Jail after being ordered to appear in court to face the charges. WGIL Radio reported the duo was still in the McDonalds parking lot when officers arrived just before 2 a.m. Wednesday. Police said the man was crouched over in the drivers seat trying to pull on a pair of pants while his passenger was covering up in a blanket. WGIL reports the pair told officers the late-night fast-food run might not have been a great idea, but that they both still thought it was funny.$1 million bill LEXINGTON, N.C. Do you have change for a million-dollar bill? Police say a North Carolina man insisted his million-dollar note was real when he was buying $476 worth of items at a Wal-Mart. Investigators told the WinstonSalem Journal 53-year-old Michael Fuller tried to buy a vacuum cleaner, a microwave oven and other items. Store employees called police after his insistence the bill was legit, and Fuller was arrested. The largest bill in circulation is $100. The government stopped making bills of up to $10,000 in 1969. Fuller was charged with attempting to obtain property by false pretense and uttering a forged instrument. He is in jail on a $17,500 bond, and it isnt clear if he has an attorney. He is scheduled to be in court Tuesday.Cow memorials CHICAGO An animal rights group wants Illinois to install highway signs in memory of cattle killed when trucks hauling them flipped in two separate wrecks. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has asked for permission to buy the markers, one in suburban Chicago and one northwest of Peoria. The group says the signs would pay tribute to the more than 20 cattle killed as a result of negligent driving this year. Illinois Department of Transportation spokesman Josh Kauffman says the request will likely be denied because the states Roadside Memorial Act specifies only relatives who lost loved ones in highway crashes may request memorials. Dead birds LITTLE ROCK, Ark. Thousands of dead blackbirds rained down on a town in central Arkansas last New Years Eve after revelers set off fireworks that spooked them from their roost, and officials were reporting a similar occurrence Saturday as 2012 approached. Police in Beebe said dozens of blackbirds had fallen dead, prompting officers to ban residents from shooting fireworks Saturday night. It wasnt immediately clear if fireworks were again to blame, but authorities werent taking a chance. Police were working with animal control workers and others to remove the birds and determine a death count.
