Giffords will face decision about future Associated PressWASHINGTON The signals are strong. One year after being shot in the head, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is on a mission to return to the job she so clearly loved. Her husband and people near the three-term congresswoman say she is highly motivated to recover from her injuries and get back to work in Washington, potentially using her inspirational story as a way to mend political differences in the nations capital. She faces a May deadline to get on the November ballot, meaning she has a few months to decide her next step. Her future will depend on a recovery that has progressed in remarkable fashion over the past year as she is now able to walk and talk.

Three weeks later, Ben called to tell me they were getting married in a month. Both of their families were shocked. Ben is usually a sensible guy, but since he met Kim, he has been unpredictable and seems brainwashed. He is hurt when his friends and family tell him that rushing into marriage with someone he barely knows is not a good idea. I resolved to trust Bens judgment until I met Kim. She clearly has serious mental and emotional problems. The first day we met, she told me elaborate personal stories from her childhood that clearly were made up. Ben was crazy about Kim when they first met, but now he seems embarrassed, and Id even characterize his reaction as trapped. Kim recently announced that she is pregnant, and Ben now feels obligated to marry her. But I dont trust anything she says. Kim clings to Ben 24/7 and controls his life. I suspect he wants to get out of the engagement, but hes a little afraid of her. He wont confide in anyone, but I can tell hes struggling. What can I do? They are both 19, and Im afraid this girl is going to ruin his life before it starts. D i s t r a u g h t B e s t F r i e n d D e a r D i s t r a u g h t : This sounds like emotional abuse. The combination of being away from home, starting college and meeting an exciting girl didnt give Ben a chance to catch his breath. If you think hes having second thoughts, please let him know he doesnt need to rush into anything, no matter what the circumstances are. Even if there is a baby, he can fulfill his obligations as a father without marrying a girl who seems unstable. Dont badmouth Kim, but do encourage Ben to talk to a college counselor. Remind him that this is his future and he should take whatever time he needs to get it right. D e a r A n n i e : We live in the same town as my husbands brother, and he frequently stops over for short visits. Thats fine, except he makes himself a little too comfortable. During each visit, he opens the fridge or pantry and helps himself to whatever he wants. He even has opened a bottle of wine and poured himself a glass. He never asks whether its OK with us. If we are eating when he stops by, we always offer to feed him, but I think its rude that he simply helps himself to whatever he wants without first asking. Am I wrong? How should I handle the situation? F e d U p D e a r F e d U p : Its sweet that your brother-in-law feels so welcome in your home that he raids your refrigerator, but obviously, its too much, too often. Ask your husband to speak to his brother and explain that you love him, but you are the ones who buy the groceries. Simple consideration requires that he ask before taking anything and occasionally replace whatever he grabs. D e a r A n n i e : I must say you blew it with Standing My Ground as the Bad Aunt, whose nephews girlfriend probably stole $170 from them. This young lady should be interrogated about the obvious facts and held accountable. As it stands now, she must feel she got away with it, which will only fuel the fires in her thieving mind. At the very least, she should be aware that everyone knows she is a crook who is not welcome at the scene of her crime. L a n c e D e a r L a n c e : Many readers wanted the girlfriend raked over the coals, but the nephews parents specifically asked that Bad Aunt let the theft slide because their son had been seriously ill and they didnt want to upset him. The aunt agreed to this. The opportunity to question the girl has passed, and Aunts choices now are to lock up the valuables or keep the girl, the nephew and the nephews parents out of their home indefinitely. Its not an easy choice. Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

PAGE A4 TODAY & Tuesday morning Survey looks at driver safety Special to the ChronicleA recent survey of motorists show a clear divide between a desire for safety on the roadways and personal habits. While an overwhelming majority of Americans desire a greater level safety and are open to government action to make things better, the survey conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety shows many are unwilling to change potentially deadly personal behaviors. The U.S. Department of Transportation recently released updated fatality and injury data, which say 32,885 lives were lost in automobile crashes in 2010 the fewest deaths on record than any time in the past 60 years. Even one death is unacceptable, especially to the more than 32,000 families who will never see their loved ones again, said Michele Harris, director, AAA Traffic Safety Culture for The Auto Club Group, in a recent news release.

She plays with other young pups, chasing, rolling and batting at them with her big paws. After a month of treatment at the Citrus County Animal Shelter, Charlotte looks better, too: more like a young German shepherd and less like the starved, mangy animal found by the side of the road. She just looks like a totally different dog. Her coat, I think, thats like one of the main things, said Dr. Julie Rosenberger, county veterinarian. The crusties are gone from her nose and her body. When she came in, the patches of her fur were lifting off. Shes got all this new fur regrowing.

The shelter took the dog and after weeks of care and medication is ready to be sent to a German shepherd rescue group for her continued care.

Construction ahead DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle Construction on State Road 44 starts today with resurfacing the road from Forest Road in Inverness to Rock Crusher Road in Crystal River. The $9.5 million project is the first work performed on the east-west thoroughfare since the road was widened 15 years ago. Construction is expected to continue until July 2013. State starts 15-month repaving project along S.R. 44 M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterLECANTO State Road 44 is undergoing its first major facelift of since the road was widened to four lanes 15 years ago. A repaving project begins Monday between North Lopp Point, near Stokes Flea Market in Lecanto, and Forest Drive at County Road 581 in Inverness. The road length is 11.2 miles. The $9.5 million project is awarded to D.A.B. Constructors of Inglis, which has done many resurfacing projects on the county road system and Interstate 75. State Department of Transportation officials say the project will take about 15 months, with expected completion in July 2013. DOT officials say lane closures may occur during the day or night. Workers will monitor the traffic for congestion. Along with resurfacing, the project includes: Constructing new sidewalks on both sides of S.R. 44 between North Lopp Point and Tighe Drive near the Lowes store in Inverness. Also, existing damaged sidewalks will be repaired where necessary. Widening right-turn lanes throughout the project area. Replacing the poles and signals with new hurricane-resistant poles and signals at West Homosassa Trail. Citrus County Commissioner Dennis Damato said it makes sense for the state to resurface S.R. 44. The surface of the road is starting to crack, he said. Instead of building new roads, the state wants to preserve everything they have. Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at 352-563-3228 or email@example.com.

Editors note: An occasional look at how well politicians statements adhere to the facts. C ALVINW OODWARD Associated PressWASHINGTON Executing a classic Washington dodge, Newt Gingrich told Americans that Medicare and Medicaid could be kept solid merely by ending fraud in the system, a promise of gain without pain that ignores the aging population and other great forces pressing on the programs. Mitt Romney told voters hes done the math supporting his claim he created more than 100,000 jobs in the private sector, but didnt share it. And Ron Paul came up with a shocking figure on Fed bailouts that bears little resemblance to reality. A look at some of the claims in a pair of weekend Republican presidential debates and how they compare with the facts: GINGRICH: The duty of the president is to find a way to manage the federal government so the primary pain is on changing the bureaucracy. On theft alone, we could save $100 billion a year in Medicaid and Medicare if the federal government were competent. Thats a trillion dollars over 10 years. And the only people in pain would be crooks. THE FACTS: Those who have crunched the numbers believe squeezing every last penny of fraud from health care programs would not solve long-range problems that are at the heart of the federal governments budget woes and imperil Medicare and Medicaid. Those problems are driven by an aging population, the cost of high-tech medicine and what some researchers see as a pattern of overtreatment the widespread use of medical tests, procedures, drugs and devices that wind up being of little or no benefit to patients. If policymakers once viewed health care fraud as akin to a cost of doing business, that hasnt been the case for years. President Barack Obamas health care overhaul law toughened penalties and gave law enforcement agencies new tools to combat fraud. That built on earlier efforts by the administrations of George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. Health care fraud investigations are a major source of money recovered for taxpayers by the Justice Department, surpassing fines and penalties collected from defense contracting fraud. Although cracking down on fraud and abuse will help to maintain Medicare and Medicaid, the administration and lawmakers of both parties are convinced it is not a magic elixir to restore the financial health of the programs. PAUL: I dont see how we can do well against Obama if we have any candidate that, you know, endorsed, you know, single-payer systems and TARP bailouts and dont challenge the Federal Reserves $15 trillion of injection bailing out their friends. THE FACTS: First, there are no fans of governmentrun, single-payer health insurance in the Republican field, despite Pauls suggestion otherwise Sunday. Newt Gingrich once endorsed the idea of requiring everyone to have health insurance, and Romney introduced a mandate for health coverage as Massachusetts governor. But thats a far cry from a Canadian-style health system that makes government the primary payer of peoples medical bills. TARP is the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program that was proposed by President George W. Bush and passed by Congress in 2008 to help rescue imperiled financial institutions. Nearly all of the money has been paid back, with interest. Pauls slam against the Fed ignores the fact that most of the $15 trillion he is talking about involved loans that were quickly repaid, sometimes the next day. And thats if these Fed transactions can even be considered loans in the conventional sense. When the Fed lends money to banks, it creates the money out of thin air. When the banks pay it back, the money disappears from the system. If a bank borrows $5 billion from the Fed one day, then pays it back the next, and a week later borrows $5 billion more and quickly pays it back, the total would be listed as $10 billion, even though its just the same money going back and forth and the treasury is in no sense being emptied. Thats how a federal report counted a running total of about $15 trillion in emergency Fed loans to domestic banks and their foreign subsidiaries between 2007 and 2010. The actual loan total, once paybacks are accounted for, is estimated at $1.1 trillion. ROMNEY: In the business I had, we invested in over 100 different businesses and net-net, taking out the ones where we lost jobs and those that we added, those businesses have now added over 100,000 jobs.... Im a good enough numbers guy to make sure I got both sides of that. THE FACTS: Romney has never substantiated his frequent claim that he was a creator of more than 100,000 jobs while leading the Bain Capital private equity company. His campaign merely cites success stories without laying out the other side of the ledger jobs lost at Bain-acquired or Bain-supported firms that closed, trimmed their workforce or shifted employment overseas. Moreover, his campaign bases its claims on recent employment figures at three companies Staples, Dominos and Sports Authority even though Romneys involvement with them ceased years ago. By that sort of charitable math, President Barack Obama could be credited with creating over 1 million jobs even though employment overall is down about 2 million since he came to office. But Romney accuses Obama of destroying jobs while using a different standard to judge his own performance cherry-picked examples that leave everything else out. By its nature, venture capitalism often results in lost jobs because profitability and efficiency are key to investors, not how many people are on the payroll. Bain Capital profited in cases where employment went both up and down. Staples, now with close to 90,000 employees, and Sports Authority, with about 15,000, were startups supported by Romney. The direct workforce at Dominos has grown by nearly 8,000 since Romneys intervention. But Romney got out of the game in 1999, which has not stopped his campaign from crediting him with jobs created at those companies since then. Romney toned down the braggadocio in the Saturday debate, saying of the Bainsupported companies that grew, were only a small part of that, by the way. But he mentioned a few more successful companies, again without giving voters a breakdown of his net-net calculations. No one has been able to produce a full accounting of job gains and losses from the scores of companies Romney dealt with at Bain. But a Los Angeles Times review of Bains 10 largest investments under Romney found four of the big companies declared bankruptcy within a few years, costing thousands of jobs and often pension and severance benefits. GINGRICH: Under Obama, 2011 was the highest price of gasoline in history. It is a direct result of his policies, which kill jobs, raise the price of heating oil and gasoline, weaken the United States, increase our dependence on foreign countries and weaken our national security in the face of Iran trying to close the Straits of Hormuz. FACT CHECK: Its true the average price of gas last year was a record: $3.52 per gallon. Tying that completely to Obama is a stretch because some of the reasons for expensive fuel have nothing to do with him or the United States. Oil and gas prices jumped early last year due to the political uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa. The revolt in Libya, for example, cut off about 1.5 million barrels of daily oil exports. While thats only a small part of what the world uses, global demand was rising at the same time as fastgrowing economies in the developing world, such as China and India, needed more oil. The Republican candidates almost uniformly blame Obama for hindering U.S. energy development, taking their cue from his moratorium on oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico after the Deepwater Horizon disaster, a ban now lifted. Oil and gas companies have been ramping up extraction of oil and gas from shale rock deposits in states such as North Dakota and Texas. All told, there is now a boom in oil drilling and extraction of natural gas in the U.S. Active U.S. oil rigs increased 22.5 percent in 2011, and the oil and gas extraction industry added 25,000 jobs, up 12 percent.

From staff reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE C ATHYK APULKA Staff WriterHOMOSASSA On the first Sunday of the month the Citrus Jazz Society comes together to jam and show off its musicians talents. The public flocks to see the band that consists of 10 to 20 members (who) play without pay at the Citrus Catholic Charity Community Center, formerly the Knights of Columbus Hall, in Homosassa. Delois Lang-Dick and Joe Colosimo danced as the band played jazz, swing and Dixieland music. Weve been coming here for a long time, about 10 years, Lang-Dick said. We follow the band around. Its real danceable music. Larry Kulis, treasurer for the society, said most of the band members are retired professional musicians who play for the love of music. The guys are very good, he said. They show up once a month. Its amazing that they sound so good without any practice. I enjoy listening. Carolyn Hoskins is the societys secretary. Her husband, Roy, 85, is a vocalist and plays guitar in the band. We have regulars (who) play every month, she said. When you look at the ages of the musicians, 70s and 80s, theyve all played all of their lives. This is their chance to still play music. Tony Caruso, society president and jazz society band drummer, said the society has been in existence since 1992. He has been president for the past eight years. He said the jazz band plays from 1:30 to 4 p.m. from September to June. Admission is a $7 donation, which pays to rent the building from Catholic Charities at 9020 W. Atlas Drive. Caruso said the public is welcome and can bring refreshments, as no refreshments are available for purchase.

Residents dance the afternoon away Citrus Jazz Society Band jams for locals S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Seated comfortably in a rocking chair at the head of the room, Ethel Winn smiled and shook the hand of every person who approached her to shower her with birthday wishes. Turning 100 is a major milestone, but even with a century behind her, Winn shows no signs of slowing down. I tell you I dont feel it, she said with a laugh. I cant complain. More than a 100 people gathered Saturday afternoon at First United Methodist Church in Crystal River for Winns birthday celebration. Former students and community people as well as family and friends filled the church to honor the longtime educator. This is a big deal, said Virginia Simmons, one of Winns nieces. A Citrus High School Class of 1930 graduate, Winn dedicated more than 50 years of her life to education in Citrus County. Shes been a teacher, principle and adult education administrator. Her career began Feb. 2, 1931, where she first started teaching at Rosheel School on Western Island. From there, she went on to teach at several schools around the county. Joy Coslin, who attended Saturdays event, said Winn was her first-grade teacher at Crystal River Elementary School, where the middle school is now. Though only a child, Coslin said she remembered how fair Winn was and how the children respected her because of it. She was like an extension of home, she said. But what truly amazed her was the fact Winn remembered her nearly 30 years later when she ran into her in a restaurant in Crystal River after moving back to town. She recognized me, Coslin marveled. That was impressive. Relatives from as far as Washington came to town for the celebration. Simmons said it felt good to get the family together for such a happy and special occasion. After blowing out her candles, people took the opportunity to pay homage to Aunt Ethel. I honor and love you today on your 100th birthday, said Becky Worthington, also Winns niece. She spoke about the happy times and the good memories she carries with her. She also said Winns love and dedication for her career inspired her to pursue teaching. My love and respects continues for you, she said. I love you, Aunt Ethel. Winn thanked everyone for all their kind words, hugs and kisses. Someone asked me, How does it feel to be 100? I dont know how 100 years old feels, she said. I just appreciate ... all you coming.

C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterThree public hearings will be conducted Tuesday at the regular meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). At 5:01 p.m., the board will deal with adopting a port element to the countys comprehensive plan. In 2011, the laws of Florida were amended to add Port Citrus as the 15th port in the state. The statute gives Citrus County until July 1, 2014, to apply for a grant through the Florida Seaport Transportation and Development Council to perform a feasibility study regarding the establishment of a port in Citrus County. The adoption of a port element is needed to proceed through the grant and feasibility study. At 5:15 p.m., the board will consider an application for an amendment to the comprehensive plan as part of the process to construct Outpost Shooting Range in Lecanto. If approved by the BOCC, the application would be transmitted to the State Land Planning Agency and other agencies for review and comment. At 5:30 p.m., the board will conduct a hearing regarding the change of land use designation on multiple parcels of land to resolve inconsistencies between the Land Development Code Atlas and the Generalized Future Land Use Map. A total of 95 acres is proposed for amendment in this application. If approved, the application would be transmitted to the State Land Planning Agency and other agencies.

Her only interview occurred with ABCs Diane Sawyer nearly 10 months after the shooting and showed how far she has come, but also how far she has to go. At the time, she did not speak in complete sentences and repeated her words to make her point. No, better. Um, better, better, she said when asked about returning to Washington. The day after the interview ran, her congressional office released an audio recording that showed she had made progress in her communication skills in the two weeks that had elapsed between the interview and its airing. She read from a script and an aide said it took multiple tries before she was comfortable with the result. Im getting stronger. Im getting better, Giffords said. There is a lot to say. I will speak better. Jared Lee Loughner, 23, who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia, has pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from the mass shooting Jan. 8, 2011, outside a Tucson supermarket where Giffords was meeting with her constituents. He is being forcibly medicated at a federal prison facility in Missouri in an effort to make him mentally ready for trial. Giffords returned to Tucson on Friday from Houston to attend ceremonies to mark Sundays one-year anniversary of the shooting that killed six and injured her and 12 others. Her first stop was her office, where she participated in an emotional ceremony to honor slain staffer Gabe Zimmerman. Her staff dedicated a life-size photo of Zimmerman and a memorial plaque that will greet visitors as they arrive. Her husband, Mark Kelly, posted a photo of the couple on a visit Saturday morning to a trailhead outside Tucson named in honor of Zimmerman. Events will take place throughout Sunday in Tucson, and Giffords is expected to attend at least one. Giffords has cast one vote since the shooting. She surprised colleagues in August by returning to Washington to vote for legislation raising the nations debt ceiling. The debate leading up to the vote had been among the most bitter and partisan of the year. On other votes, she is recorded as not voting. Giffords staff consults with her when working on major initiatives, such as trying to fend off the Air Forces efforts to move the 612th Air and Space Operations Center out of Tucson. The staff also works on individual constituent requests, such as helping war veterans and their widows obtain benefits or in securing a Tucson womans flight out of Egypt during demonstrations in early 2011. Aides say that Giffords now participates in teleconferences with members of her staff about once a week, though the call gets put off occasionally based on her schedule. Giffords has captivated the nation as she recovers. Going into Christmas week, her office had 24,880 letters that had poured in from all over the world. Students from 428 schools mailed her a get-well card. Many wellwishers send her handmade gifts, such as quilts, jewelry and paintings. People also send CDs with their favorite music and books with uplifting themes that they hope will cheer her up. Almost every day, we get more gifts said Giffords spokesman Mark Kimble. People routinely come in, asking if shes here and if they can talk to her. On Capitol Hill, colleagues have held several fundraisers on her potential campaigns behalf, raising more than $800,000 between Jan. 1 and Sept. 30, a number that will surely grow when a new quarterly report is filed later this month. The lawmakers say theyre optimistic shell come back, but are sensitive about getting ahead of Giffords. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she called Kelly earlier in the day to emphasize that Democratic lawmakers were thinking of the congresswoman as the anniversary of the shooting approached. We look forward to welcoming her back, and hopefully that will be soon, Pelosi said. Giffords speaks with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz probably more than any other member of Congress. When asked about her colleagues return, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee said Giffords was focused on her recovery for now. Shes making a lot of progress. Shes doing great, Wasserman Shultz said. She still has a long way to go. Giffords has until May 30 to file nominating signatures to have her name placed on the ballot for Arizonas 8th Congressional District. Kelly told Arizona Public Media she wont wait until the last minute to make her decision, and he has suggested she might wait until 2014 to mount her political comeback. He said Giffords is the exact same person she was before the shooting and just has to learn how to communicate as well as she did before. She doesnt remember the day she was shot, but if you back up one day, her memory is as good as mine for anything we have done together over the last seven years that I have known her, he said. That memory was on display near the White House in October when several current and former members of Congress attended Kellys retirement ceremony from the Navy. As guests were introduced, Giffords turned and acknowledged them by waving or blowing a kiss. She even had an easier time than Vice President Joe Biden in pinning a medal onto Kelly, despite limited use of her right hand. The bullet went through the left side of her brain, which has affected her right side. She walks with a limp and its difficult for her to use her right arm.

FREE For Household Hazardous Waste Only Hazardous Waste Accepted Weekdays Tues., Thurs. & Fri., 9:00 AM 1:00 PM 1949, on average there is still one needless death every 16 minutes as a result of motor vehicle crashes. To reach zero deaths each driver must take responsibility for ensuring they actively choose to be safer drivers. For the fourth consecutive year, the AAA Foundations Traffic Safety Culture Index finds that most drivers (86 percent) view it as unacceptable to drive without wearing a safety belt, yet nearly one in four admit they have done so in the past 30 days. Additionally, a substantial number of drivers find it unacceptable to drive 10 mph over the speed limit on residential streets and admit to having done so in the past month. This do as I say, not as I do attitude that persists among drivers needs to change before we can experience a traffic safety culture where safe driving is the norm, said Peter Kissinger, traffic safety president and CEO, AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. The following is a snapshot of the key findings from the 2011 Traffic Safety Culture Index: Drinking and driving: More than three in four drivers (76 percent) said people driving after drinking alcohol are a very serious threat to their personal safety and nearly all (97 percent) consider it to be unacceptable. However,more than14 percent of drivers admit to driving when they thought their alcohol level was close to or possibly over the legal limit at least once in the past year, and of these, more than one in five (21 percent) have done so in the past month. Cell phone use and texting: Distracted driving, specifically cell phone use and texting while driving, is widespread. Ninety-four percent of drivers consider texting while driving a serious threat; however, more than one-third of drivers (35 percent) admit to reading a text or email while driving in the past 30 days and more than a quarter of drivers (26 percent) admit to sending a text message while driving in the past month. More than two-thirds of drivers (68 percent) report talking on their cell phone while driving in the past month, and nearly one in three (31 percent) say they do so fairly often or regularly. Speeding and Red Light Running: Speeding is widespread on highways and residential roads. Seventy-four percent of drivers consider it unacceptable for a driver to drive more than 15 mph over the speed limit on a freeway, yet more than half of drivers (52 percent) admit to having done so in the past month. Virtually all drivers (94 percent) consider it to be unacceptable for a driver to drive 15 mph over the speed limit on a residential street, yet more than one in four drivers (26 percent) admit to having done so within the past 30 days. Nearly all drivers (94 percent) view it as unacceptable to drive through a traffic light that has already turned red if they could have stopped safely; however, more than one in three drivers (37 percent) admit doing this in the past month. Drowsy driving: Most drivers view drowsy driving as a serious threat to their safety and a completely unacceptable behavior. Virtually all drivers (96 percent) consider it unacceptable for someone to drive when they are so sleepy they can hardly keep their eyes open; however, nearly one-third of drivers (32 percent) admit to having done so during the past month. Safety belts: Nearly one in four drivers (23 percent) admit that they have driven without wearing their safety belt in the past 30 days, and nearly one in five (19 percent) say they have done this more than once. SAFETY Continued from Page A1 animals. Budny and other volunteers have done the nurse work for the special-needs animals by bathing them, exercising them and giving them all their medications. As far as her heartworm disease, technically, shes on a method of slow-kill treatment just because she is on Ivermectin for her mange, Rosenberger said. So shes technically on a slow-kill method. Its the best thing for her right now. Ivermectin is derived from naturally occurring compounds and has insecticidal properties, so it is used as an antiparasitic agent. The medication is getting rid of Charlottes Demodex, a type of mange caused by parasitical mites in hair follicles. Demodex is not contagious to other animals or people. Ivermectin also is used to treat worms. Cathy Pearson, the countys community services director, visited Charlotte last week to see how shed improved. Pearsons husband found the dog and the couple cared for her overnight until Rosenberger could see her. Charlotte is improving enough that she soon could move on to her next step in finding a home. We have a German shepherd rescue (group) that we work with that really would like to continue her care, Rosenberger said. Shes doing well. She continues to put on weight. She tolerates her medication well. Theres no reason we cant send her on, so shes likely going to go to rescue. With the previous story about Charlotte, several Chronicle readers called to ask how they could contribute financially to her care. Some wanted to send money only to Charlotte. Its hard to earmark funds for a specific animal, Rosenberger said. People can donate money to the board of county commissioners. In the line on the check that says For, write Special Needs. We have the Special Needs account. We need the money to help all these others. This guy over here, he needs to have X-rays next week. Rosenberger pointed to a large, skinny white dog that had been found by a road. At first, it was assumed the dog had been hit by a car. But his legs were just weak, and he possibly has nerve damage. Another dog, called Blondie, was born with a heart condition and has had a cardiologist perform an ultrasound of her heart. The Special Needs fund is useful for all these little special-needs animals, Rosenberger said. Animal lovers help in other ways to save the shelter animals, Rosenberger said. People tell me, If no one else will adopt this animal, Ive been through treating for heartworm or mange and Im willing to commit to that, Rosenberger said.

Richard Alf, 59COMIC-CON CO-FOUNDER SAN DIEGO Richard Alf, one of the co-founders of San Diegos Comic-Con, has died from pancreatic cancer at age 59. U-T San Diego reported Alf joined up with a band of volunteers in 1970 to start the now-annual convention celebrating comic books. Friend and fellow ComicCon co-founder Mike Towry said Alf fronted a few thousand dollars to pay for the convention for the first three years and gave other co-founders rides in his car. In 1970, the first ComicCon was relatively modest compared to the convention that now draws more than 125,000 people to San Diego every summer for a three-day extravaganza. Alf also founded the Comic Kingdom shop in North Park in the 1970s. Alf was diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer in December. He is survived by his mother.Tony Blankley, 63COMMENTATOR WASHINGTON Tony Blankley, a conservative author and commentator who served as press secretary to Newt Gingrich during the 1990s, when Republicans took control of Congress, has died. He was 63. Blankley, who had been suffering from stomach cancer, died Saturday night at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, his wife, Lynda Davis, said Sunday. In his long career as a political operative and pundit, his most visible role was as a spokesman for and adviser to Gingrich from 1990 to 1997. Gingrich became House Speaker when Republicans took control of the U.S. House of Representatives following the 1994 midterm elections. Earlier, Blankley spent six years in the Reagan administration in a variety of positions, including speechwriter and senior policy analyst. From 2002 to 2007, he served as editorial page editor of The Washington Times In recent years, he also wrote a syndicated newspaper column and provided political commentary for CNN, NBC and NPR. He was also a regular panelist on The McLaughlin Group. He was the author of two books and a visiting senior fellow in national security communications at the Heritage Foundation. Born in London, Blankley moved to California with his parents as a child and became a naturalized American citizen. He worked as a child actor in the 1950s, appearing in such TV shows as Lassie and Highway Patrol and playing Rod Steigers son in the movie The Harder They Fall. Before entering politics, he spent 10 years as a prosecutor with the California attorney generals office. Blankley and Davis lived in Great Falls, Va. In addition to Davis, he is survived by three children. Jessica Joy Rees, 12 BLOGGER RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif. A Southern California girl who became a nationally recognized face of child cancer with a blog that chronicled her fight against brain tumors has died. Jessica Joy Rees was 12 years old. Jessicas family announced her death on her Facebook page, stating her 10-month battle with brain cancer ended Thursday. Tens of thousands of people responded by posting updates to the page in a show of support that includes likes and prayers. By Friday afternoon, the outpouring surpassed Jessicas goal to get one like for each of the estimated 50,000 American children with cancer. The Orange County seventh-grader, called Jessie by family and friends, began her blog and Facebook page after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in March. A second tumor was discovered in September. While some of her posts discussed her struggles as she underwent radiation and chemotherapy treatments, others urged readers in dozens of countries to support pediatric cancer research and to pray for other children with the illness. She always signed her posts with the acronym NEGU (NEE-goo), short for never ever give up. Also, she and her parents started The NEGU Foundation, a nonprofit organization to raise awareness of pediatric cancer, support sufferers and raise money for research.

David Riach, 74 BEVERLY HILLSDavid Johnston Riach, 74, of Beverly Hills, passed away peacefully in the early morning hours on January 7, 2012, with his loving wife of 50 years by his side. The ever present twinkle in his eye was with him through his final days as was his famous thumbs up approach to life. Born, raised and married in Scotland, David enlisted in the Royal Navy where he was trained as an engineer. This provided him the opportunity to move to America, where he initially worked for M.I.T. having experiences such as cutting moon rocks. But answering the call of his independent and creative nature, he started his own Plexiglas fabrication company in 1973, which he owned until his retirement in 1998. It was his dream to retire in Beverly Hills, FL, which he did but only after taking a couple of years to tour the United States in a motor home with his wife. This combined many of his favorite things: road trips, family, adventure and seeing the USA. An active member of many organizations through out his life, he was involved with the Elks, the Shriners, the Masons and the Rotary Club. His naturally joyous disposition and laughter allowed him to quickly form and maintain great friendships that always brought him and those around him pure delight. However, his greatest accomplishment came in the form of being an adoring husband, father, papa, brother, uncle and kindhearted pal to all who knew him. Even in the final days of his life, he still was providing comfort and kindness to all around him. He is survived by his wife, Ann; daughters, Traeci Ann and Lorna Jayne; sister, Elizabeth; and grandchildren, Alexander David and Hannah Grace. Many extended family members reside in Scotland. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hospice House of Citrus County. A service memorial celebrating his life is planned for Thursday, January 12, 2012, at 10 a.m. at the Inverness Elks in Hernando, FL.

O PINION Page A8 MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 2012 The magic number My niece just bought Droids for herself and her daughter. Two brand-new phones, $50 each, touch screens, unlimited texting, 1,400 minutes a month, apps, net, music, video, etc. Her cost: $220 a month for both of them. Our commissioners just paid $113,693.50 for their new phones. I could do the math, but Ill bet thats more $220 a month. Is there anything wrong with the cell phones they already have? And where does it say taxpayers should provide county commissioners with cell phones anyway? Are they necessary for the commissioners to do their jobs? Any items supplied to commissioners and county staff should be justified on that standard. The hospital foundation wants to purchase buildings in Lecanto and Crystal River. They bought the businesses contained in the buildings a while ago and now they want to spend $1.8 million on the buildings themselves. Of course, they are putting themselves in competition with the doctors who admit to their hospital. Those funds should be spent on hospital services, or maybe a small raise for the employees or maybe improvements to specialty clinics within the hospital that provide health care for all of us. Other items of late: The port? Fifty thousand dollars for a feasible study? Will that study include a cost estimate to repair the damage to our roads the loaded trucks will cause if the port is successful? Dont discount the peace and quite of Crystal River, especially since I live there. Has anyone found out if the container freight companies will use our new port? It would seem $50,000 is the magic number. Our county commission now wants to hire a lobbyist. Can you guess what the budgeted amount is? Lets not forget the road to nowhere. Richard Dick Callahan Crystal River Billions more gone With the saturation of the news media on the fight in Washington over the payroll tax cut, how the tax cut will be paid for seems to have gotten lost somewhere along the way. First, lets cut to the chase and call the payroll tax cut what it is it is a cut in the amount of money individuals have to pay into the Social Security system each payday. The fight in Washington was over whether to extend the cut that was started in 2011 for another year or now two months. Why two months? That is another whole letter to the editor! The Associated Press article in the Dec. 21 Chronicle stated the extension of the Social Security Tax reduction would cost $33 billion and would be financed by a 0.10 percent hike in home-loan guarantee fees charged by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the two government-sponsored entities (GSE) that are in bankruptcy. What the media has not told you is the payback of the $33 billion into the trust fund will take at least 10 years. So here we go again, passing (extending) a tax cut that will further deplete the trust fund we all know is already going bankrupt. There is no doubt some members in Congress really believe we are all fools. If you do not believe that, just try talking to someone in Sen. Nelsons office about why the Senate and Congress have not done something about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac the two lending agencies whose lending practices got us into the financial crisis and still cost taxpayers billions of dollars every year.Floyd Ford Crystal River S o heres how it is: You have no drivers license because you have nothing to drive. You have no passport because youve never been out of the country. You have no other photo ID because you have no bank account. You work and get paid under the table, a wad of cash sliding from hand to hand. It is a life lived in the margins. And if South Carolina and a number of other GOPcontrolled states have their way, it will be a life to which a significant new impediment will be added: you will not be able to vote. Over the holiday, the Justice Department rejected a South Carolina law requiring a photo ID as opposed to just a voter registration card for would-be voters. The department called the law discriminatory against blacks. Under the Voting Rights Act of 1965, South Carolina and other states and localities with histories of infringing the voting rights of blacks are required to get federal approval before changing their voting laws. This is the first time the feds have rejected such a change since 1994. South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has blasted the decision as political. She probably has a point. The law would have disproportionately affected the poor, who are disproportionately likely, for the reasons outlined above, to lack photo IDs. The poor are disproportionately black, and black people are disproportionately likely to vote Democratic. It would be naive to believe that did not enter into the thinking of the Obama Justice Department. But the inverse is also true. As similar voter ID laws are passed in other Republican-controlled states including those that are not covered by the Voting Rights Act it would be naive to believe politics does not also enter the GOPs thinking. Though lawmakers swear their only interest is to combat voting fraud (which is not known to be a rampant problem), it is difficult not to feel their true intent is to suppress the black vote. Granted, race is nowhere mentioned in the voter ID bills. It was not mentioned in bills imposing grandfather clauses, poll taxes and literacy tests either. All were officially race-neutral, yet the intention and effect was to bar blacks from voting. As Richard Nixon once said of his War on Drugs, another raceneutral policy that somehow victimizes mostly blacks, the idea is to target blacks while appearing not to. The Justice Department was right to block this law, but it is nonetheless hard not to feel a certain pox-on-all-their-houses cynicism as people who live on the margins are both targeted and defended for political reasons, but otherwise go unremarked and unrecalled. Democrats depend upon the votes of black and/or poor people, but do little to earn them no jobs training, no criminal justice system reform, no attention whatsoever to the things that delimit their lives. Meantime, Republicans write off the votes of black and/or poor people and do all they can to suppress them. They are made mute and forgotten even as the public square rings like a cash register and monied interests ka-ching their way into positions of power and influence with politicians on both sides of the aisle who are ostensibly elected to represent us all even if we lack a photo ID. Corporations are people, we have been told. Poor people, evidently, are not. Write to Leonard Pitts Jr. at 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Forgive us for pretending to care for the poor, when we do not like poor people and do not want them in our homes.

This program had already begun to prove its worth long before a tip led to a major drug bust in Pine Ridge that resulted in the lions share of Crime stoppers confiscated property. The program is reaping benefits not only measured in dollars. Crime stoppers is about valuing stakeholders and what they add to the equation. A dedicated and engaged citizenry is a key component to making the program work. The idea of Crime stoppers is to have neighbors watching out for each other. We want our neighbors paying attention, being vigilant and reporting crimes and suspicious activity when they see them. It is important to not look the other way, and this program offers incentives for citizens to be part of the solution by offering rewards for tips. The program includes a process that allows tipsters to remain anonymous for safety reasons. Crime stoppers promotes community pride and citizen activism, and those are successes the program can hang its hat on. Another benefit of Crime stoppers is it uses confiscated property and money to help support the program. Additionally, it is run separately from the sheriffs office, so it does not drain the resources of the department. Finally, the programs director plans to integrate the schools into the system, which should help curtail, among other things, drugs and bullying. We applaud the milestone reached by Crime stoppers and the good work that has taken place in the previous two years, and we look forward to a successful transition to the school setting in the future. THE ISSUE: Crime stoppers reaches $1 million milestone.OUR OPINION: Program already deemed successful.

SEND LETTERS TO: The Editor, 1624 N. Meadowcrest Blvd., Crystal River, FL 34429. Or, fax to 352563-3280 or email to email@example.com LETTERS to the Editor Drivings a privilege Driving a car and using a cell phone in any way is very dangerous. Driving is not a right; driving is a privilege that you earn. It also is taken away from you. Its given to you by the state. So if the state wants to put a law in to say you cant use a cellphone while driving, they can do it because nobody can say its against your rights to stop you from doing that because driving, once again, is a privilege that you have to earn and it can be taken away.Clearer policy neededTo the person (who) called in about Bleeding hearts, the little dog being shot and he thinks its a protective action: I still believe Sheriff Dawsy needs to tell us what his policy is on using deadly force against small animals. Prescription problemI would like to thank the Citrus County Sheriffs (Office) for finally uncovering some of these prescription drug problems and finally arresting six people.

Resign, Obama Obamacare took $500 billion out of the Medicare system, counted it as a savings on debt, then spent it on another part of the Obamacare bill. I know that kind of math will get me in jail if I try to do it. Where does it get him? It gets him more votes from his base. You really have to hand it to this guy. He really knows his base doesnt have a clue about what he is trying to do to them. I guess all they worry about, according to Chris Matthews of MSNBC, is a tingle that runs up their leg when he speaks. Please, Mr. Obama, you should resign for the good of your country. You are, without a doubt, the worst president this country has ever elected to office. Claude Strass Homosassa Right-wing threats When did the Republican Party latch onto the Religious Right or did the Religious Right latch onto the Republican Party? Nonetheless, the coupling has been disastrous. One of the dangers they pose is their fight against the separation of church and state, claiming this is a Christian nation. Yes, the majority of citizens are Christian, but nowhere does our Constitution use the word Christian or Bible. Both the Religious Right and Republicans are enemies of equal rights for gays, and of reproductive choice, viewing abortions as a crime murder. Both groups base their views on the evils of homosexuality, found in the Book of Leviticus. Therefore, a political and religious party is basing its arguments on Biblical scriptures. In reality both groups, one religious and one political, are using scripture to try to pass laws supporting the beliefs of a particular religion mostly of fundamentalist Christianity. Using a religious belief system as an argument is a direct slap in the face of the Constitution regarding the separation of church and state. If, in fact, the Republican Party and the Religious Right take control of Congress in 2012, we might end up living in a theocracy. Evolution may well be replaced with Creationism in schools. Gay sex would be considered a crime with the possibility of imprisonment. So-called family values would come to the forefront again; men would be in charge of families, relegating women to second-class citizenship. Sex education in schools would be done away with. Abortion and birth control would be outlawed, placing many women in a dangerous situation. One might think we would be protected by the Supreme Court, forgetting five of the justices are active conservatives who operate outside of the law. This is particularly true with Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas. Both the above groups are silent about the real issues of today. We hear nothing about the need for jobs, fair wages, illegal forecloses of homes and health care why? L.M. Eastman Lecanto Obviously false Robin Humphrey and other right-wing writers have made some devastating attacks on the role of government in the economy. Their case is, as usual, based on absolute truisms which are totally false. One popular statement is governments by definition, produce and contribute no wealth. They must take resources from the producing sector to provide services. More simply put, for government to give anything to anyone it must take an equal amount from another. That would seem obvious, but it is clearly false. The economy is dynamic, and not a zero-sum game, as right-wingers are fond of pointing out when grotesque income equality is criticized. In reality, whatever fictions you believe about Socialist Roosevelt (Franklin, not that RINO Teddy), between 1933 and 1937 the government spent lots of money to stimulate the economy. It increased the taxes on the super-rich as well. But it spent somewhat more than it took in and the GDP increased multiples of the government spending. Of course, the unemployment rate diminished from roughly 26 percent to 16 percent and declining. So if the government spent more than it taxed, and GDP increased more than it spent, where did the wealth come from? Manna from Heaven? In truth, World War II stimulated industrial growth and provided full employment with government spending. As did Reagan, who according to Citizens United, left the government bigger than he found it; though his penchant was for doing it on borrowed money instead of taxes. A startling example of government spending stimulating a national economy lies in Nazi Germany. I know, not a politically correct example. But Hitler, by re-arming Germany and building the Autobahn network, among other things, got Germany out of the depression by 1935. All with resources which, according to Humphrey, could not possibly exist. Although it is perhaps worth a separate article in itself, there is the issue of what services might be better provided by the state. How about health. Our life expectancy is almost that of the U.K., but we pay about four times as much. Pat Condray Ozello All Dems faultLee Williams gets his facts a little confused in his letter about Bushs legacy, but at least hes trying to understand numbers and not just shouting rants. Hes has the numbers right, but its the commas and decimal points that are confusing him. He writes $567 billion and he meant to say $5.67 trillion. My point is, if he had a clue, he would recognize his $10.024 trillion number, which is correct for Sept. 20, 2008, is 20 times his $567 billion number, not twice it, as he represents it to be. Lets get the numbers right and assign blame where it correctly belongs. The $5.64 trillion number is correct for Sept. 20, 2000. The Democrats took control of Congress on Jan. 3, 2007, at the start of the 110th Congress, not a year later on Jan. 22, 2008, when President Obama took office. Congress is responsible for funding the operation of the government, not the president. On Sept. 30, 2007, the federal debt was $9.01 trillion. That means the Republicans under Bush increased the national debt $3.37 trillion in seven years. I admit that and Im not proud of it. However, the national debt now stands at $15.1 trillion, which means the Democrats and Obama increased it $6.1 trillion in just four years. Those are the facts, and its time the Democrats quit lying about them. You outspent Bush by twice in half the time. On Jan. 3, 2007, when the Democrats took over Congress, the GDP had grown 3.5 percent in the last quarter and unemployment was 4.6 percent. We had 52 straight months of job creation. That was the day Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee. Fifteen months later, we had a financial meltdown. Bush asked Congress 17 times, starting in 2001, to stop Fannie and Freddie, but Barney blocked it, calling it a Chicken Little philosophy. The sky did fall, but the blame is squarely on the shoulders of Fannie and Freddie and the Democratic Party, and not Wall Street. Harley Lawrence Homosassa Elect new monkeys If you start with a cage containing five monkeys, and, inside the cage, hang a banana on a string from the top, and then you place a set of stairs under the banana, before long a monkey will go to the stairs, and climb toward the banana. As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray all the other monkeys with cold water. After a while another monkey makes an attempt with same result ... all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it. Now, put the cold water away. Remove one monkey from the cage, and replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana, and attempts to climb the stairs. To his shock, all of the other monkeys beat the crap out of him. After another attempt and attack, he knows if he tries to climb the stairs he will be assaulted. Next, remove another of the original five monkeys, replacing it with a new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs, and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment ... with enthusiasm. Then, replace a third original monkey with a new one, followed by a fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs he is attacked. Most of the monkeys are beating him up have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs. Neither do they know why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey. Finally, having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, none of the monkeys will try to climb the stairway for the banana. Why, you ask? Because in their minds, that is the way it has always been! This, my friends, is how Congress operates and is why, from time to time, all of the monkeys need to be replaced at the same time. Bob Barry Inverness Immigration power The battlebetween the federal government and states has been going on since the establishment of the United States. The issue of illegal immigrants rights is simple and straight forward. Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution says: (Congress shall have the power) to establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization, not regulate or enforce (or not enforce) immigration. Period. Beyond that, the reader needs to drop down to the 10th Amendment. It reads: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. In short, dealing with illegal immigrants (trespassers) is a duty reserved for the states, not the federal government. Gerald Ross Inverness Love thy neighbor This old tea party rhetoric about government, postal and civil servants getting all the goods is really wearing thin. It might sound good when you are in tea party company, but I find it hard to believe the citizens of my county really feel that way about their neighbors. I overheard someone in the post office saying the lines were so long because they have to get a break every 15 minutes. I dont really think the man believes that, but I do think he thought it sounded so tea party-ish to say it. Do you people actually believe the postal workers, park rangers, firefighters, EMS workers and garbage men go home at night to their multimillion-dollar homes, fish from their $50,000 boats and vacation in the South of France? Come on people. These are your friends and neighbors; they are not politicians cleaning up with the lobbyists. Leave the rhetoric behind and show them a little trust, respect and loyalty they have always gotten from Americans in the past (remember the neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers thing?) Believe me, you will miss them all something terrible when they are gone and all you have left is bad tea party rhetoric to fall back on.

Associated Press Interior displays are seen at Louisianas Civil War Museum in New Orleans. But 150 years after the Civil War, the little museum finds itself in another battle: Like other Civil War museums in the North and the South, it is fighting to make the changes needed to keep it relevant to coming generations for which the war is not a memory.

Praying Company recalls Excedrin, NoDoz BASEL, Switzerland Novartis is recalling some bottles of Excedrin, NoDoz, Bufferin and Gas-X on Sunday over concerns the bottles could contain stray pills from other medicines, or chipped or broken tablets. The news follows Novartis recent decision to temporarily suspend production at its Lincoln, Neb., plant for maintenance and other improvement activities. The Swiss drug maker said it implemented the recall, which affects U.S. retailers, voluntarily and is working with the Food and Drug Administration during the process. It became aware of the potential problem during an internal review that identified broken and chipped pills, and inconsistent bottle packaging that could cause pills to be mixed up. Robin Hood Associated Press A man carries a statue of legendary figure Gauchito Gil in Mercedes, in Argentinas Corrientes state, Sunday. Gauchito Gil, who is part of Argentinas popular culture, was an 1800s outlaw who became a mystical symbol of bravery; stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. Arab League: Syria must halt violence BEIRUT The Arab League demanded Sunday the Syrian government immediately stop all violence and allow more monitors in, as activists reported at least 10 more civilians, including two teenagers, were killed by regime forces. Fierce clashes in the south between government troops and military defectors left 11 soldiers dead, activists said. The Arab League also called on other armed parties to halt all bloodshed, an apparent reference to the defectors. Qatari Foreign Minister Sheik Hamad Bin Jassem Bin Jabr Al Thani said the ministers did not agree to call for U.N. experts to join the observers mission in Syria, but said U.N. experts will train the monitors in Cairo before they leave. Even had they called for the U.N. experts to go in, Syrias regime may well have blocked them. From wire reports World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A10 MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressTEHRAN, Iran Iran has begun uranium enrichment at a new underground site built to withstand possible airstrikes, a leading hard-line newspaper reported Sunday in another show of defiance against Western pressure to rein in Tehrans nuclear program. The operations at the bunker-like facility south of Tehran, reported by theKayhandaily newspaper, are small in comparison to Irans main enrichment site. But the centrifuges at the underground labs are considered more efficient and are shielded from aerial surveillance and protected against airstrikes by up to 300 feet of mountain rock. Uranium enrichment is at the core of the international standoff over Irans nuclear program. The U.S. and its allies fear Iran could use its enrichment facilities to develop high-grade nuclear material for warheads. Iran which claims it only seeks nuclear reactors for energy and research has sharply increased its threats and military posturing against stronger pressures, including U.S. sanctions targeting Irans Central Bank in attempts to complicate its ability to sell oil. A senior commander of the Revolutionary Guard force was quoted as saying Tehrans leadership has decided to order the closure of the Strait of Hormuz, a strategic oil route, if the countrys petroleum exports are blocked. Revolutionary Guard ground forces also staged war games in eastern Iran in an apparent display of resolve against U.S. forces just over the border in Afghanistan. Iran reportedly enriching uranium Actions show of defiance against Western officials Moving evicted tenants profitable Associated PressNEW YORK Property owners across the country bear a burden from the recession: paying a fortune in moving and storage costs to evict tenants who fail to pay their rent. But the owners losses are a boon for the companies that clear out homes. Their business has skyrocketed, making money out of peoples misery, said David Robinson, an attorney for Legal Services NYC, which helps lowincome New Yorkers navigate the eviction process. Hardest-hit are ethnic urban neighborhoods, where about twice as many renters are forced to leave as in the general population, according to housing experts. Low-income black women, often single mothers, are the most likely to be evicted because they cant afford their rent, recent research showed. For the movers, its a lucrative business, absolutely, said Eli Navon, owner of Eagle Van Lines, a New Jersey-based company that executes eviction moves in the greater New York area. Such jobs typically bring extra money because you have to pack every single thing, from the dishes to the furniture, and sometimes even garbage; were not allowed to throw anything out, Navon said. His clients pay an average of about $2,500 to clear out a two-bedroom apartment, Navon said. And thats not the end of eviction expenses for the property owner, who then must pay for a storage unit to hold the tenants goods for 30 days. Thats how long tenants in New York and New Jersey have to pick up their belongings before theyre discarded or auctioned off. And some owners take on additional cost when they hire an attorney who specializes in evictions. Kick em Out Quick is the name of a nationwide, online referral service warning owners nonpaying and nuisance tenants cost you time, money and serious risk to your property. ... Take control and protect your investment. In January, they posted their Nightmare Eviction of the Month, from Ogden, Utah. In that case, the landlord waited five months before filing to evict the tenant, who owned $5,600 in back rent, plus $8,700 in damages. The total loss to the property owner was $14,300, before moving costs. Businesses rake in money Associated PressNEW ORLEANS Inside Louisianas Civil War Museum, battle flags line the walls. Uniforms, swords and long-barreled guns fill museum cases beside homespun knapsacks, dented canteens and tiny framed pictures of wives that soldiers carried into battle. In the back, theres a collection devoted to Jefferson Davis, onetime president of the Confederacy, complete with his top hat and fancy shoes at the spot where his body once lay in state. Its all housed in a little red stone building next door to the bigger and much more heavily visited Ogden Museum of Southern Art and near the National World War II Museum. Yet 150 years after the Civil War, the little museum finds itself struggling like others both in the North and South to make changes and stay relevant with new generations. For some museums, that means more displays on African-Americans or exhibits on the roles women played as combatants and spies. For others, it means adding digital maps and electronic displays to attract tech-savvy youth for whom the war holds no memories. Or it may simply mean adopting a wider, more holistic approach to the war without taking sides. But its not always easy for museums to update their exhibits because of the high costs, curators say. And some would-be visitors dollars are kept away by the perception that southern Civil War museums are one-sided or even racist. Its a challenge on several fronts, one is getting enough money for it, said John Coski, historian and library director at the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond, Va. Most have recognized the need to make the transition to a more modern perspective, but for some thats a struggle. Especially in the South, there are still strong feelings about some of these museums. Louisianas museum opened in 1891, then called Confederate Memorial Hall: The Battle Abbey of the South. The combative name was dropped in the 1960s and today its seeking a more inclusive, broader perspective, museum curator Patricia Ricci said. It has been invited to become affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution, which will further spur the effort to showcase a more modern interpretation of the war. I think we will add some information on the Union effort here, Ricci said. And we will probably make some other additions with it. It always comes down to money, and we never have enough. Today, the museum has the second largest collection of Confederate artifacts in the nation. Visitors can view the uniforms of eight Confederate generals from Louisiana, rare swords and rifles, more than 125 original battle flags and rare photographs. Ricci, the museums curator of 31 years, notes fewer people have visited the museum with each decade since the 1950s. But the 150th anniversary offers hope a tide of new visitors will arrive. Attendance in December was up by 800 people over 2010, Ricci said. The 150th began in April with the commemoration of the first shots fired at Fort Sumter in Charleston, S.C. It will end in four years with remembrances of the Confederate surrender at Appomattox in Virginia. For now, the Confederate Museum draws just a fraction of the visitors who flock to bigger museums nearby, averaging about 16,000 people a year. Thats down from some 20,000 visitors before Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans in 2005.

Fourth-seeded Raonic hit 35 aces in a marathon match that lasted 3 hours, 16 minutes and didnt include a break of serve. It is an awesome feeling, said the 21-year-old Raonic, who won all 48 of his service games during the week to become the first player to win a tournament without dropping serve since Roger Federer at the 2008 grass-court tournament in Halle. Raonic dropped only four points on serve in the first set and had four chances to break in the fourth game before the Serbian stole it in the tiebreaker. Raonic established a 4-1 lead in the second-set tiebreaker before leveling the match on his second set point. He had to save break points early in the decider but dominated the tiebreaker with his serve. Oosthuizen edges Van der Walt at Africa OpenEAST LONDON, South Africa Louis Oosthuizen holed a 35foot birdie putt on No. 17 to top fellow South African Tjaart van der Walt and retain his title at the Africa Open on Sunday. The former British Open champion beat Van der Walt by two shots after closing with a 6-under 67 for a 27-under total of 265 at the seasonopening European Tour event. Van der Walt shot a 69 to finish one shot ahead of Retief Goosen, who also carded a 69 at East London Golf Club. Oosthuizen and Van der Walt were tied with two holes to play, but Oosthuizens birdie and Van der Walts bogey at the short par-3 No. 17 finally separated the pair. Oosthuizen had an up-anddown front nine at the par-73 course with an eagle, four birdies and two bogeys. But he birdied Nos. 11 and 17 and didnt drop any shots coming home to claim the $201,000 winners check. Van der Walt opened with three straight birdies and had five in all. His only bogey of the day was the crucial slip at No. 17, where he missed a birdie chance and a short putt for par. It was a real dogfight for most of the day, Oosthuizen said. What happened on 17, it was going to be one of us who faltered. If I two-putted, he would probably have made that short putt. Jordans oldest son leaves Knights ORLANDO Jeff Jordan, the oldest son of Michael Jordan, is leaving the Central Florida basketball team for what he says are personal reasons. The school announced the decision Saturday night but did provide further details. The senior guard didnt travel with the team for its 81-63 win at East Carolina Saturday night. Jordans younger brother and Knights guard Marcus Jordan, a junior, remains with the team. Jeff Jordan walked on at Illinois and played three seasons before transferring to UCF after the 2009-10 season. He was playing his first season with the Knights after sitting out a season because of NCAA transfer rules. He appeared in 13 games this season, averaging 2.7 points and 1.8 assists. From wire reports Associated PressEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Even Eli Mannings feet are dangerous. Manning punctuated his best pro season Sunday by throwing for three touchdowns and scrambling for a 14-yard gain that woke up New Yorks offense. He sparked the Giants to a 242 rout of the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC wild-card game Sunday, their first postseason victory since their Super Bowl upset of undefeated New England four years ago. Next up is just as big a challenge for the Giants (10-7): the defending champion Packers in Green Bay next Sunday. New York lost 38-35 to Green Bay in December. We know they are a good team, Manning said. We played them tough here, did some good things here, we scored some points. We know offensively we are going to have to play strong, score some points. The team that couldnt run the ball will be sprinting there, bringing along a defense the Packers (15-1) actually might fear. Not to mention the offense led by Manning, who hooked up on a 72-yard catch and run by Hakeem Nicks in the third quarter that put away the inept Falcons (10-7). Manning also connected on a 4-yard TD with Nicks in the second period, and a 27-yard TD throw to Mario Manningham in the fourth quarter that finished it off. The Giants are playing with more balance on offense and more stinginess on defense than theyve displayed most of the season. Their last postseason trip to Lambeau Field was a 23-20 overtime victory for the NFC championship two weeks before they upset the Patriots. The tempo in the first playoff game at MetLife Stadium was set by New Yorks defense, which never allowed Atlanta to get going, and by the leagues lowest-ranked rushing game, which ran for a season-high 172 yards, 92 by Brandon Jacobs and 63 by Ahmad Bradshaw. The Giants averaged 5.5 yards a carry, 2 yards more than in the regular season. For all of Jacobs and Bradshaws success, it was Mannings escape and 14yard dash on third down in the second period that got the Giants rolling. Jacobs soon broke a 34-yard run, and Manning hit Nicks on a post pattern to put the Giants up 7-2. I dont think anyone is game-planning for me to run the ball, Manning said, but obviously there were a couple of situations where you have to do it. I am not scared to do it.

Associated PressNEW ORLEANS Les Miles squeezed out a smile, clenched his left hand nervously and extended his right hand toward Nick Saban. The coaches got in an awkward grasp, forced a bit of small talk, and then posed for the cameras behind the crystal trophy that only one of them can hoist toward the Superdome roof come Monday night. This was the last of their pregame obligations one final chance for Miles to deflect a query about whether top-ranked LSU is the favorite to make it to the BCS title next year, one more opportunity for Saban to show hes got a life beyond his stranglehold on the storied program at No. 2 Alabama (turns out he does, if watching the Weather Channel qualifies). Now, lets get down to business. LSU vs. Alabama, Part II. The BCS championship. This time, its for all the marbles. Really. The teams already met two months ago in Tuscaloosa, a so-called Game of the Century that was more of a Brawl in the Backyard, a brutal slugfest that sent both teams scurrying for the training room the next day and left fans around the country feeling a bit cheated by an old-fashioned defensive struggle in a college game now dominated by point-aminute offenses. Neither team made it to the end zone in that first meeting, even with the benefit of extra time.

B2 M ONDAY, J ANUARY9, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S PORTS The Giants never really had to look back as the Falcons bumbled their way to their third straight playoff loss under coach Mike Smith and quarterback Matt Ryan. New York was aided greatly by Atlantas penchant for gambling on fourth downs and failing. Twice the Giants stymied the Falcons on fourthand-1 as Ryans sneaks went nowhere. The defense also stopped Michael Turner, supposedly the most effective runner on the field, on a third-andinches late in the third period. Atlanta missed on a fourth-down try in overtime that cost the Falcons a game against New Orleans during the season. While they negated New Yorks recently revitalized pass rush for much of the day, the Falcons couldnt gain any traction on the ground, being held to 64 yards rushing. Both offenses sputtered in the first half with an assortment of penalties, drops and poor throws. When the Falcons wheeled out the no-huddle offense, though, they marched from their 10 to a fourth-and 1 at the New York 24. On the first play of the second quarter, Ryan was stacked up on his sneak. But it turned out positively for the Falcons anyway. Giants guard Chris Snee was called for holding, and, from his 13, Manning was pressured back into the end zone by James Sanders. He threw the ball away to avoid the sack, resulting in a safety. New York had its own fourth-andinches run on its first touchdown drive. Jacobs ran over safety Thomas DeCoud on the play from the Atlanta 6. Nicks caught his post pattern over Dominique Franks, the fill-in for injured cornerback Brent Grimes, to make it 7-2. Atlantas last playoff win was in 2005 over St. Louis when Michael Vick still was the Falcons quarterback. won a battle of field goals, claiming a 9-6 overtime victory and stealing away the top spot in the rankings from the Crimson Tide. Everyone expects more scoring in the rematch, but theres no way its turning into one of those back-andforth shootouts weve seen so many times this bowl season. Id expect it to be big-boy football, Miles said Sunday during his time on podium. LSU (13-0) has already put up a body of work that clearly establishes it as the nations best team. In addition to that Nov. 5 win at Alabama, the Tigers have victories over two other major bowl champions, Rose Bowl winner Oregon and Orange Bowl champ West Virginia. In all, theyve knocked off eight teams that were ranked in The Associated Press Top 25, with only three of those games in Baton Rouge. The only team Ive told them not to schedule is the Green Bay Packers, Miles quipped. Maybe its only appropriate for the Tigers to find one more daunting challenge standing in the way of a championship season a great team theyve already beaten. When we take the field, well be an emotional, firedup football team, Miles vowed. Alabama (11-1) didnt even make the championship game of the Southeastern Conference, but the Crimson Tide managed to sneak back into the national title race when Oklahoma State lost late in the season. In the strangest of twists, Sabans team will be the one celebrating its second national title in three years with a mere split of the season series with LSU. Perhaps sensing just how fortuitous Alabama was to get a do-over, Saban wants his players to seize the moment. I would like for them to focus on the opportunity, not the pressure part, he said, so that they really are zeroed into the mental practice and the things that when they go out there and play, theyre going to be confident in doing their job the way they need to do it to have success. That sort of robotic talk is typical of Saban, who spits out championship teams with assembly-line precision, devoid of any flair. While Miles disjointed grammar and goofy antics make it difficult to take him seriously at times, there are no such issues with Saban. Hes all business, mixed in with a healthy dose of fear and autocracy. Hes not like that all the time. He does have a personality, junior Robert Lester said. But hes hard on us because he wants us to get the job done. On the field, he demands what he wants. By doing so, the guys go out there and try to do it perfect to please him. It works. You can tell, because were playing in the national championship game again. When you come here, youve got to buy into the program. Thats part of it. Weve bought in and had success. Saban did break character a few times Sunday. When someones cell phone went off in the back of the room with a loud song, the coach interjected, Is that a little Al Green? Turn it up, man. He drew laughs when telling how he grilled anyone who wanted to go out on a date with his daughter. None of them ever really answered me, he said, managing a slight smile. They were so intimidated so I never got much good information. Saban even revealed the morning routine he has with his wife. We get up at 6:15 every day and watch the Weather Channel for about 30 minutes before we start our day, Saban said. I get most of my marching orders in that 30-minute segment of what we should do or how I should do it or why its important to do it that way, what I need to talk to the team about. I get coached up very well in that 30minute segment of the Weather Channel. He might want to see if theres a Kicking Channel. Alabama likely would have won the first meeting with LSU if not for the dismal performance by its two kickers. Cade Foster botched three field-goal attempts, including a 52yarder after the Tide went the wrong way with its overtime possession. Jeremy Shelley also missed. Given these are two defenses that take it personally when someone gets close to the goal line, Foster and Shelley are likely to be called on again in the championship game. But the Alabama offense hopes to make it a little easier on them this time. Fosters other misses were from 44 and 50 yards. Shelley failed to convert on a 49-yarder, far beyond his normal range. No one doubts the Alabama defense, which wouldntlook that out of place in the NFL with 260-pound linebackers Donta Hightower and Courtney Upshaw. The Crimson Tide led the nation in every major category, allowing a minuscule 8.8 points a game. LSU, with not one but two All-American cornerbacks in Tyrann Honey Badger Mathieu and Morris Claiborne, isnt far behind. The Tigers have allowed the second-fewest points (10.5) and are no lower than sixth in the other three major rankings. BCS Continued from Page B1 Associated PressNEW ORLEANS So you are planning to watch the BCS championship Monday night between No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama but maybe youre not the biggest college football fan. Weve got you covered with everything you need for a wellinformed and enjoyable game-watching experience. SUITING UP As an ode to the late, great Alabama coach Paul Bryant, Crimson Tide fans are fond of wearing clothing with a Houndstooth pattern to match the Bears famous hat. So if you want to feel like a real Bama backer, you might want to raid your grandfathers closet. LSU fans like to accessorize with Mardi Gras beads, especially when their team is playing in New Orleans, its home away from its Baton Rouge home. How you go about getting those Mardi Gras beads is your own business. S-E-C! Alabama and LSU both play in the Southeastern Conference, making this the first BCS title game between league rivals from any league. Its an article of faith down here that the SEC is the greatest college football conference in the history of the world and the only current conference that actually allows tackling. Six straight national championships (including whichever school wins Monday) makes it a little hard to argue with that. REMATCH?LSU beat Alabama 9-6 in overtime on Nov. 5 in Tuscaloosa, Ala., in what was dubbed the Game of the Century. It was an epic struggle so dazzling and thrilling the public demanded a rematch. And by the public we mean Alabama fans.NATIONAL TITLESAt some point you might hear that Alabama claims 13 national titles, more than any program in the country. Its a claim fans of other teams tend to roll their eyes at because it includes four from before there were major polls handing out championships in 1936, and another in 1941 that was bequeathed to a two-loss Crimson Tide team by the Houlgate System. Tide fans argue all national titles are mythical. Skeptics counter that some are more mythical than others. LSU has won three national titles (1958, 2003, 2007), but even that comes with some controversy. The Tigers were BCS champions in under then-coach Nick Saban, but Southern California was No. 1 in both polls before the bowls. When LSU beat Oklahoma in the BCS title game, it made the Tigers No. 1 in the coaches poll. USC was voted No. 1 in The Associated Press media poll, which was then part of the BCS formula. WARNING: Do not ask an LSU fan about that split national title with USC. SPEAKING OF SPLIT TITLES... Yes, it is possible that LSU could lose the game and be voted No. 1 in the AP poll. It may not be the most likely scenario, but if Alabama wins a very close game under fluky and/or controversial circumstances the Tigers absolutely could be crowned national champions by the AP voters. So if youre looking for an endless debate and messy finish to what has been a messy and scandalridden college football season, pull for a 10-9 victory by Alabama. UNCLE LES vs. SAINT NICK The man in the white hat is usually considered the good guy in those cowboy movies, and it seems appropriate that LSU coach Les Miles never coaches a game without his white cap. No offense to Alabama coach Nick Saban, with his perfect hair and glittering record, but Miles does comes across as more approachable and affable when hes doing that flat-handed clap on the sideline and talking about his players want meaning desire to compete. On the other hand, Saban might not be warm and fuzzy but surely some Alabama fans vote to canonize him. HEISMAN FINALISTS If a running back could be genetically engineered, the result would likely be Alabama All-American Trent Richardson. The 224-pound junior ran for 1,583 yards, scored 23 touchdowns, finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting and can squat 600 pounds. To sum up, Richardson is a bad, bad man with the ball in his hands. This will likely be his last game with Alabama. Next stop, first-round NFL draft pick. LSU defensive Tyrann Mathieu would do well in those Allstate insurance TV commercials. He is mayhem for opponents. The sophomore forced six fumbles and recovered five, made two interceptions and scored four touchdowns, two on punt returns. He finished fifth in the Heisman voting. And maybe youve heard, they call him Honey Badger, which somehow never gets old. Unless youre Mathieu and you have to answer questions about it all the time. WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN LSU HAS THE BALL Running backs struggling to get past the line of scrimmage. Receivers being laid out. Quarterbacks throwing the ball away. All to be followed by long punts from LSU All-American Brad Wing.WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN ALABAMA HAS THE BALL See above, but substitute missed field goal attempts for long punts. WHO WINS?

Tebow, who looked as startled as everyone else, headed for his own end zone and knelt on one knee a gesture known far and wide these days as Tebowing. Then he pounded a fist in triumph and took a victory lap. Behind Tebows 316 yards passing, the Broncos (9-8) are heading to New England for a secondround game against the top-seeded Patriots on Saturday night. The Steelers (12-5) lost despite Ben Roethlisberger rallying injury-depleted Pittsburgh from a two-touchdown halftime deficit with 10 points in the final 10 minutes. Pittsburgh called tails for the overtime coin toss, and it came up heads. Tebow, who engineered five fourth-quarter comebacks and three OT wins in the regular season, wasted no time in finding Thomas to end the game. After Thomas raced down the Broncos sideline, sending the crowd, including Broncos executive vice president John Elway, into a frenzy at Sports Authority Field, which was rocking like the old Mile High Stadium back in the 1990s. And Elway, the architect of so many those magical moments at the old place, jumped for joy in his suite. The Patriots walloped the Broncos 41-23 last month, sending Tebow into a funk that included seven turnovers and a 40 percent completion clip and prompting Elway to implore him to pull the trigger in the playoffs. Did he ever. Tebow completed 10 of 21 passes but Thomas hauled in four of them for 204 yards after his top target, Eric Decker, was lost to a left knee injury on the first play of the second quarter when he was hit by linebacker James Harrison. Tebow also ran 10 times for 50 yards and capped his best day as a pro with the toss to Thomas. These two teams had played the first ever regular season overtime game on Sept. 22, 1974, in Denver. Now, they played the first non-sudden death playoff game in history. The new rules called for both teams to get the ball in the extra period providing there wasnt a touchdown by either the offense or defense. Tebow took care of that in a hurry. Making his first appearance in the playoffs after going 7-4 as Denvers starter, Tebow outdueled Roethlisberger, a two-time Super Bowl winner, who fell to 10-4 in the playoffs. The Broncos snapped a three-game losing streak that had many wondering if they were even worthy of their first playoff in six seasons, and it kept the Steelers from their 34th playoff win, which would have broken a tie with the Cowboys for the most ever. Tebow led Denver to 20 second-quarter points they had scored just 13 in the quarter in his 11 starts but a 20-6 halftime lead didnt last long. Receiver Mike Wallace had a 1-yard TD run, Shaun Suisham kicked a short field goal and Jerricho Cotchery grabbed a 31yard TD pass with 3:48 left in regulation to tie it.

Jason Richardson scored a season-high 22 points, Glen Davis added a season-best 20 and the Orlando Magic beat the Sacramento Kings 104-97 on Sunday despite playing much of the game without foul-plagued Dwight Howard. The All-Star center had five points and four rebounds in 20 minutes and spent most of the first three quarters in foul trouble. He didnt get his first rebound until 4 minutes into the fourth and was scoreless before converting a three-point play with 6:35 remaining, putting the Magic ahead 87-85. Ryan Anderson had 19 points and 11 rebounds for Orlando. Von Wafer made three 3-pointers and scored 12 points, and Hedo Turkoglu added 11 points. With the Magic clinging to a one-point edge, Turkoglu banked in a 3 with the shot clock running down to give Orlando a 93-89 lead with just less than 3 minutes remaining. Andersons 3-pointer from the corner and Turkoglus layup gave the Magic a 10295 cushion with 35 seconds left. Despite playing almost the entire first half without Howard, the Magic led 49-47.

Durant needed only three more assists to record his first career triple-double but instead sat out the entire fourth quarter with the rest of Oklahoma Citys starters. The Thunder were able to coast to the finish for the second time in their back-to-back-to-back set after outscoring the Spurs 37-21 in the third.

After Corey Crawford made two point-blank saves, Datsyuk got to the loose puck along the goal line to the goalies left, whiffed once and then snapped a rising shot that hit Leddy and bounded into the open upper portion of the net as Crawford was down in the crease.

D AVIDG ERMAIN AP Movie WriterLOS ANGELES The fright flick The Devil Inside scared up a monstrous $34.5 million opening weekend to help Hollywood exorcise its recent box-office demons, according to studio estimates Sunday. The surprise hit from Paramount Pictures debuted well above industry expectations as horror fans crowded theaters for the low-budget tale about exorcists trying to free a woman possessed by evil spirits. Between The Devil Inside and solid results for holdover films, Hollywoods business soared over the first full weekend of 2012 after a sluggish holiday season that ended a ho-hum year at the box office. Overall domestic revenues totaled $144 million, up 29 percent from the same weekend last year, when True Grit led with $14.6 million, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com. Paramount already is well into profit with The Devil Inside, an independently produced movie the studio bought for $1 million. Its the latest such low-budgeted horror acquisition for the studio, which bought Paranormal Activity cheaply and turned it into a $100 million sensation that was followed by two hit sequels. Like Paranormal Activity and another Paramount hit released in January, Cloverfield, The Devil Inside is a fictional tale shot in a mock documentary style. According to Paramount, 59 percent of viewers for The Devil Inside were under 25 and 85 percent were under 35, prime viewers for Hollywood who had not turned up in their usual numbers for much of last year. With a sales campaign that bypassed traditional newspaper and TV advertising in favor of online teasers and cryptic marketing, Paramount managed to intrigue young adults who have not been all that interested in the rush of family films and Academy Awards contenders that crowded into theaters over the holidays. The Devil Inside was the only new wide release of the weekend after the holiday crush, historically a good time for something different to sneak in and become an unexpected hit, said Don Harris, head of distribution for Paramount. For that under-25, under-35 audience thats looking for something else, that first weekend in January has always been a great weekend to release a movie, Harris said. When we saw that weekend open, we took it. The Devil Inside bumped another Paramount hit, Tom Cruises Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, out of the top spot after two weekends at No. 1. Ghost Protocol slipped to No. 2 with $20.5 million, raising its domestic total to $170.2 million. Just a day before The Devil Inside opened Friday, industry analysts had expected Ghost Protocol would remain No. 1 this weekend. The most optimistic forecasters figured The Devil Inside might manage $15 million, less than half the business it actually did. This one caught everyone looking, but the devil got his due, Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian said. Its just very difficult to track the horror fan base, no question about it. The Devil Inside is following the pattern of many horror movies, which pack in crowds on opening day then tumble quickly after that. With $16.85 million on Friday, The Devil Inside did nearly half of its business in the first day, with revenues falling to $11.75 million Saturday and an estimated $5.9 million Sunday. Critics trashed The Devil Inside, and even the fans who came out to see it gave it mixed to bad reviews. Paramount reported that 16 percent of the audience gave it an A grade, while 19 percent gave it an F. Two-thirds of the audience gave the movie a grade of C or lower. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday. movie set to begin shooting PASADENA, Calif. Fans of Jack Bauer have something to look forward to. A movie based on the old Fox series is scheduled to begin shooting this spring. Actor Kiefer Sutherland said Sunday he expects to go to work on the movie in late April or May. Sutherland played Bauer, the centerpiece on the pulse-quickening adventure series that ended its television run in 2010. Even with the movie ahead of him, Sutherland is already working on a new Fox series. Touch features him as the father of a super-intelligent son able to understand odd connections in the world and predict the future. After portraying Bauer, a character who is often required to repress emotions, his new character Martin Bohm shows his feelings. Sutherland said he hadnt expected to be doing a new TV series so soon, and wasnt specifically looking for a character as different from Bauer as possible. The reason I wanted to do this is it really spoke to me, he said. Fox will offer a sneak preview of the show Jan. 25 before it joins the network schedule in March. Elvis fans celebrate his 77th birthday MEMPHIS, Tenn. Fans of Elvis Presleys are celebrating what would have been his 77th birthday with a cake-cutting ceremony and guitarist Jose Feliciano singing Happy Birthday. Feliciano, who was in town to cut an album of Elvis songs, sang Love me Tender and Happy Birthday in English and Spanish to 500 fans. The gathering at Graceland, the longtime Memphis home of the late rock and roll icon, on Sunday morning also featured a proclamation honoring Elvis by local dignitaries that was met with loud applause. Elvis was born Jan. 8, 1935, in Tupelo, Miss., and later moved to Memphis with his parents. Lions Gate nears $400M deal LOS ANGELES Lions Gate is close to buying Summit Entertainment, the maker of the teen hit Twilight series for about $400 million. Thats according to two people Sunday who were briefed on the matter. They were not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity. Talks on a deal are in the late stages and could be finalized this week. Summit also has about $300 million in debt linked to its movies. That debt is expected to be paid off quickly, especially after the last movie in the series, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, hits theaters in November.

Associated PressLONDON The former Kate Middleton turns 30 on Monday but royal fans expecting a lavish birthday bash to mark the milestone will be disappointed. Palace officials say the Duchess of Cambridges birthday celebration will be a low-key and private affair, appearing to quash press reports she will see off her 20s with a fun s themed party, complete with karaoke, in a throwback to her more carefree bachelorette days. The choice of a muted event seems appropriate: After all, the duchess is not just starting the fourth decade of her life she is embarking on her career as a future queen, charged with renovating a monarchy that has become somewhat creaky with age. Shes done very well, playing a very good supporting role to Prince William and complementing him as part of a team, commentator Robert Jobson said of her first few months as a royal. Weve not seen much of her, but when shes in public she has performed with aplomb, added Jobson, who is the author of William and Kate: The Love Story. The past year has seen momentous changes for Kate, with a fairytale wedding to Prince William, travels around the world and glamorous appearances that marked her transition from commoner to the worlds most talked-about princess and style icon. She has won rave reviews for her sparkle, her elegant sense of style, and her common touch with the public. The media documented and largely admired her every move. On Sunday, they were out in force with the duchess again the center of attention as she and William took to the red carpet for the premiere of Steven Spielbergs movie War Horse in central London.

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, J ANUARY9, 2012 B5 P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Bernhard Langer said: Its not life or death, its a game, and at the end of the game there is going to be a winner and a loser. He was talking about golf, but he could have been discussing any competitive game. In bridge, you can be a winner if you know how to eliminate losers when in a trump contract. We will look at the common methods this week. Todays deal highlights the most straightforward, although declarer has to be doubly careful. South is in four spades. West leads the club ace, East dropping the eight as the start of a high-low (echo) with a doubleton. West continues with the club king, the club queen, and the club 10, East discarding two hearts. After ruffing the fourth club, how should declarer continue? North should be happy to raise to two spades. Yes, his trumps are poor, but he has an ace-king combination and a ruffing value in his doubleton. South, now knowing about the fit, adds one point for his doubleton, giving him 19 support points, sufficient to jump to game, despite his balanced hand. Declarer must take the rest of the tricks, but he has a heart loser in his hand. If he immediately draws all of the trumps, he will lose the last trick to Wests heart queen. But as dummy is short in hearts, South can try to ruff his heart four on the board. Since declarer has only one loser to ruff, he needs just one trump in the dummy. He draws two rounds of spades, cashes dummys top diamonds, and plays three rounds of hearts, ruffing the last in the dummy. When East cannot overruff, South claims. 60063000308008309009300000300030 \(MTV\ 97 66 97 39ssTeen Mom 2 PGTeen Mom 2 PGJersey Shore Caged (In Stereo)Caged (In Stereo) \(NGC\109 65 109 44 53Alaska Wing Men PGBorder Wars PGSupercarrier: USS Ronald Reagan G Alaska State Troopers Alaska Wing Men (N) PG Supercarrier: USS Ronald Reagan G \(NICK\ 28 36 28 35 25iCarly GiCarly GFamilyVictoriousSponge.Sponge.ssGeorgeGeorgeFriendsFriends \(OXY\ 44 123 Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too \(SHOW\ 340 241 340 4\224\224\227\001 Red (2010, Action) Bruce Willis. iTV.

Three weeks later, Ben called to tell me they were getting married in a month. Both of their families were shocked. Ben is usually a sensible guy, but since he met Kim, he has been unpredictable and seems brainwashed. He is hurt when his friends and family tell him that rushing into marriage with someone he barely knows is not a good idea. I resolved to trust Bens judgment until I met Kim. She clearly has serious mental and emotional problems. The first day we met, she told me elaborate personal stories from her childhood that clearly were made up. Ben was crazy about Kim when they first met, but now he seems embarrassed, and Id even characterize his reaction as trapped. Kim recently announced that she is pregnant, and Ben now feels obligated to marry her. But I dont trust anything she says. Kim clings to Ben 24/7 and controls his life. I suspect he wants to get out of the engagement, but hes a little afraid of her. He wont confide in anyone, but I can tell hes struggling. What can I do? They are both 19, and Im afraid this girl is going to ruin his life before it starts. Distraught Best Friend Dear Distraught : This sounds like emotional abuse. The combination of being away from home, starting college and meeting an exciting girl didnt give Ben a chance to catch his breath. If you think hes having second thoughts, please let him know he doesnt need to rush into anything, no matter what the circumstances are. Even if there is a baby, he can fulfill his obligations as a father without marrying a girl who seems unstable. Dont badmouth Kim, but do encourage Ben to talk to a college counselor. Remind him that this is his future and he should take whatever time he needs to get it right. Dear Annie: We live in the same town as my husbands brother, and he frequently stops over for short visits. Thats fine, except he makes himself a little too comfortable. During each visit, he opens the fridge or pantry and helps himself to whatever he wants. He even has opened a bottle of wine and poured himself a glass. He never asks whether its OK with us. If we are eating when he stops by, we always offer to feed him, but I think its rude that he simply helps himself to whatever he wants without first asking. Am I wrong? How should I handle the situation? Fed Up Dear Fed Up: Its sweet that your brother-in-law feels so welcome in your home that he raids your refrigerator, but obviously, its too much, too often. Ask your husband to speak to his brother and explain that you love him, but you are the ones who buy the groceries. Simple consideration requires that he ask before taking anything and occasionally replace whatever he grabs. Dear Annie: I must say you blew it with Standing My Ground as the Bad Aunt, whose nephews girlfriend probably stole $170 from them. This young lady should be interrogated about the obvious facts and held accountable. As it stands now, she must feel she got away with it, which will only fuel the fires in her thieving mind. At the very least, she should be aware that everyone knows she is a crook who is not welcome at the scene of her crime. Lance Dear Lance: Many readers wanted the girlfriend raked over the coals, but the nephews parents specifically asked that Bad Aunt let the theft slide because their son had been seriously ill and they didnt want to upset him. The aunt agreed to this. The opportunity to question the girl has passed, and Aunts choices now are to lock up the valuables or keep the girl, the nephew and the nephews parents out of their home indefinitely. Its not an easy choice. Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
