C ATHYK APULKA Staff Writer LECANTO n honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, The Blind Boys of Alabama performed at Seven Rivers Presbyterian Church in Lecanto to a sold-out crowd of 800. As the audience stood on its feet, cheering and applauding, the band was led on to the stage by band stage manager, Willie Chuck Shivers, as they held on to each others shoulders for guidance. They opened with the song People Get Ready followed by a rendition of Spirit in the Sky. As the evening progressed the crowd was treated to songs from their newest album titled, Take the High Road. Ricky McKinnie, vocalist and drummer for the band, has played with the band for the last 35 years and has been touring with them for the last 22 years. We are excited to be a part of MLK Day and the work that he has done, McKinnie said. And being a part of Martin Luther King and his legacy. Playing and singing with McKinnie on Sunday were founding band member, Jimmy Carter, along with Benjamin Moore, Joey Williams and Tracey Pierce. McKinniesaid the band was formed at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in Birmingham in 1939 and has been on the road since 1944 playing for audiences around the world. The award-winning band is known as living legends of gospel music, winning five Grammy awards. They have been inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame and been recognized by The National Endowment for the Arts with Lifetime Achievement Awards. Band members have sung in the White House for two presidents, one being President Barack Obama. The Blind Boys have been honored to be able to go to the White House and play for Obama in the same year that the MLK Memorial was unveiled, McKinnie said. In the 1960s, the band joined the Civil Rights movement, performing at numerous benefits for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The band has performed with a wide variety of gospel, soul, R&B, rock and country musicians ranging from Bonnie Raitt, to Willie Nelson, to Lou Reed and Peter Gabriel.

Port back on comp plan C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterKeeping the port project on course, commissioners on Tuesday agreed to add another chapter to the countys comprehensive plan. As part of the groundwork to conduct a feasibility study for the proposed Port Citrus project, county staff had to put the port element back into the comprehensive plan. The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) conducted a transmittal public hearing on the port element and voted unanimously to authorize transmittal of the element to state agencies for review. Cynthia Jones, transportation planner, explained the background for the need to put back the port element. Jones said the original comprehensive plan adopted in 1989 included a ports and aviation element. One of the recommendations of the 1996 evaluation appraisal report was to remove the port element from the comprehensive plan, Jones said.

And all four are playing a role in this years Citrus County political campaigns. As individuals and corporations, Bill Bachschmidt, Dixie Hollins, Stan Olsen and Steve Tamposi have combined to contribute $30,300 in the campaigns for sheriff, property appraiser and county commissioner. Donors, whether they are persons or businesses, are limited to $500 contributions for each election cycle. A primary and general election, for example, is two election cycles. Corporations under the same owner may contribute the $500 limit as well, and many do. Companies and individuals associated with Bachschmidt, owner of D.A.B. Constructors Inc., an Inglis road contractor whose company had the majority of road-resurfacing contracts in Citrus County the last three years, led with $12,500 in contributions, according to the Citrus County Supervisor of Elections website. The totals are for campaign donations up to Dec. 31, 2011. Tamposi, the developer of Citrus Hills and its associated villages, donated $7,500 to local campaigns through companies he owns. Olsen, the former developer of Black Diamond Ranch whose Gulf to Lakes Corp. owns the Meadowcrest building where the county is leasing space for the West Citrus Government Center, has donated $5,800 in corporate contributions Hollins, who owns a mining company and is the owner of property targeted for the Port Citrus project on the Cross Florida Barge Canal, has donated $4,500 to local campaigns through himself, his wife and his business. Recipients include Sheriff Jeff Dawsy, a Democrat seeking re-election to his fifth term, Property Appraiser Geoff Greene, and county commission incumbents Dennis Damato and Joe Meek. With official qualifying for the ballot still five months away, Greene and Meek are so far unopposed for re-election. Meek has collected about $37,000 total, including $6,900 from companies associated with Bachschmidt, Hollins, Olsen and Tamposi. Meek said Saturday that he tells all donors, regardless of who they are, that he considers financial backing a sign of support for his work in the county commission and nothing more. Im grateful for any support, he said. Donors may also contribute to as many candidates as they wish. Tamposis companies, for example, donated $1,500 to both Dawsy Jeff Dawsy sheriff of Citrus County will run for reelection. Dennis Damato commission incumbent. Joe Meek unopposed commission incumbent.

Kings image evolves Towering legend, flawed man? Associated PressWASHINGTON On the National Mall in Washington, Martin Luther King Jr. is a towering, heroic figure carved in stone. On the Broadway stage, hes a living, breathing man who chain smokes, sips liquor and occasionally curses. As Americans honor Kings memory 44 years after he was assassinated, the image of the slain civil rights leader is evolving. The memorial The new King memorial, which opened in August in the nations capital, celebrates the ideals King espoused. Quotations from his speeches and writings conjure memories of his message, and a 30-foot-tall sculpture depicts King emerging as a stone of hope from a mountain of despair, a design inspired by a line See IMAGE / Page A5 See CONCERT / Page A5 ON THE NET www.votecitrus.com We are excited to be a part of MLK Day and the work that he has done, and being a part of Martin Luther King and his legacy.

S omewhere between me (who uses coupons only occasionally) and extreme couponers who make coupon use a competitive sport are normal people who just want to save money when they shop. Enter Mary Alice Hogan, a former third grade teacher at Forest Ridge Elementary School, whos now a stayat-home mom who calls herself a coupon enthusiast. She also runs a couponing blog (http://thesunshineshopper.com) and teaches couponing classes locally. (The next one is from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, at The Ceili onN.E. Fifth Street in downtown Crystal River. Register at the blog site. Space is limited.) Hogan definitely has stuff you should know. Last month she sent me an email saying how the art of couponing has changed with the advent of online social media sites and the growth of printable couponing sites like Coupons.com, RedPlum, SmartSource.com, among others. Coupons arent just for grocery items either. Department and specialty stores offer coupons in their flyers and on their websites. Kohls, JCPenney and Bealls are my favorites. Bealls (and other local businesses) often have peel-off coupons right on the front page of the Chronicle how easy is that? So, its not like coupons arent abundantly and readily available. Its getting into the habit of using them, and as Hogan teaches, using them wisely, intentionally and strategically. One of her biggest tips: Almost every item in a grocery store has its own sales cycle. Successful shopping is really all about timing, she says. For example, every few weeks or so, a certain item will go on sale. However, onlyonce in the six to eight week cycle will that item reach its lowest price. The goal is to purchase that item while its at its lowest price and use coupons to maximize your savings. On her blog, Hogan posts the Publix ad under the Grocery Deals tab and lays out whats on sale that week and which coupons to use for the best discount. She also posts miscellaneous deals. Last week she had information about All brand laundry detergent for $1 at CVS, a mail-in rebate for a free Kelloggs $10 MasterCard (with the purchase of 10 boxes of cereal) and free coffee samples plus a gift at Starbucks. Hogan also spells out the basics of couponing, from the jargon (i.e. BOGO Buy One Get One free) to understanding grocery store sales cycles and shopping strategically. As Im writing this I checked out another website, Coupons.com, and found printable coupons for grocery items I actually use 75 cents off Smart Balance milk, $1 off Kashi GoLean cereal, 40 cents off three cans of Campbells soup. Thats $2.15 right there that I can use for a jar of peanut butter when its on sale. Im learning. Its going to take time to train myself to be more strategic, as Hogan says. Just yesterday when I got a batch of grocery ads in my mailbox I looked through them instead of tossing them out unread. I noted some BOGO items that we normally use and made a note of them. Its a baby step, but its a step in the right direction. Paying attention pays. Here are some tips about using coupons and finding discounts from MSN Money: Follow your favorite stores and brands on Facebook and get rewarded with coupons and exclusive deals for liking them. Dealnews.com tells you the best deals on the hottest products every day and includes feature stories on topics like Things that will cost more in 2012 and Gift card strategies. Despite the traditional wisdom not to buy something just because you have a coupon for it, use coupons for items you dont usually buy but may be curious to try. Or use a BOGO opportunity to try a different flavor of an item your favorite cereal, but cinnamon or strawberry flavored. DropDownDeals.com lets you install a free add-on (and gives a tutorial on how to install it and how it works) that automatically displays coupons and discounts on online shopping websites one-stop discount shopping. As with everything, read the fine print for rules and exceptions and expiration dates. And, as Hogan advises, be courteous. Dont clear out entire shelves of products just so you can hoard 100 tubes of toothpaste in a tote in your garage. You dont have to buy enough to get you through months or years, she says, just until the next best sale. Is there stuff you want to know about? Have stuff you think people should know? Email your ideas to nkennedy@chronicleonline.com for consideration. Around the COUNTY S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterLECANTO The homes have been rehabilitated and are ready to go. All thats needed is some potential homebuyers. The county has scheduled an orientation for its Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 19,at the Citrus County Resource Center, 2804 W. Marc Knighton Court, in Lecanto. The NSP program buys foreclosed and vacant homes owned by banks, rehabilitates them and resells or rents them to low to moderate-income households at or below 120 percent of the area median income, which is $57,720, adjusted for household size. The goal of the program is to reverse the negative effects foreclosed properties have had on the areas around them. Heidi Blanchette, housing operations manager for the county, stated the purpose of Thursdays orientation is to provide potential NSP candidates and real estate agents basic information such as eligibility requirements, properties purchased and bank financing. An open house for all six properties that are ready for sale is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Jan. 20, at each home. Blanchette stated there would be a Realtor and applications available at each residence. The properties currently for sale are: 5145 E. Triss St., Inverness: $89,500. 2265 W. Winter Place, Citrus Springs: $90,000. 82 W. Seymeria Drive, Beverly Hills: $70,000. 98 SJ Kellner Blvd., Beverly Hills: $70,000. 3736 Honeylocust Drive, Beverly Hills: $70,000. 228 S. Fillmore St., Beverly Hills: $60,000. In addition, a homebuyers class for NSP and SHIP clients will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Citrus County Resource Center. Pre-registration is required. In 2009, the county received roughly $3 million for the NSP program and used the funds to purchase 30 properties, mainly in the older section of Beverly Hills. Over the last couple of the years, at least eight of the properties have been either sold or rented, Blanchette said. The program is going very good, she added. The pride of ownership is so important. Qualified buyers may be eligible for financial assistance through the program depending on income level. Buyers must be able to secure a first mortgage loan through a traditional bank. Any assistance through the NSP program will depend on the buyers approved first mortgage loan amount based on income. The buyer must occupy the property as their primary residence and cannot currently own a home. However, the buyer does not have to be a first-time homebuyer. At least three more properties are slated to become available in the upcoming months. For more information about the NSP program, call 352-527-7520 or visit www.bocc.citrus.fl.us/com mserv/commrec/housing /programs/nsp.htm.

Rick Scott, the outsider who at one point railed against the political establishment, may soon start getting the kind of control that was never bestowed on Floridas previous chief executives. Its still early in the 2012 session but the Republican-controlled Legislature is starting to move ahead with proposals that would give Scott more handson power to shape the judicial branch and control job development agencies. Scott could also win his bid to have more of a say over state incentives used to lure businesses as well as get a legislative blessing for the way he has tackled the rulemaking process of state government. These moves are already drawing sharp complaints from Democrats. But many top Republicans say that in the last year they have come to know Scott and trust him more than they did when he first came into office. This is a turnabout from a year ago. Scott, a former hospital chain executive who used more than $70 million of his own money to win the governors race, entered office barely knowing many top GOP legislators. In his first few months many of his budget recommendations were ignored, he was sued by two legislators over his decision to reject high-speed rail funding from the federal government, and the Senates budget chairman contended that the governors office had broken the law by the way it sold off the state plane. Those early misgivings have given way to a more cooperative attitude as Scott has tried to remake his image. During last weeks opening of the session that cooperation paid off. A House committee approved a top Scott initiative to give him more control over regional workforce boards. Lawmakers might give Gov. more power

Bond $6,250. and Commissioner Winn Webb, who is a Republican also running for sheriff. Campaign reports show incumbents are off to a fast start financially. Dawsy leads the pack with $46,493 in donations. Many contributors are business owners, physicians and sheriffs office employees. Hes also spent more than $11,000, including nearly $8,000 for campaign shirts and hats. Republicans in the sheriffs race Webb, Hank Hemrick and former Crystal River Police Chief Steve Burch have varying amounts. Burch shows $7,523 in contributions, including $1,145 in personal loans. His contributors include some current and former Crystal River city officials. Hemrick shows $8,375 in contributions, but that includes political signs valued at about $6,000 from his failed sheriffs campaign four years ago. Webbs contributions of $20,020 also include $7,740 in-kind for signs and materials and a $700 personal loan. His financial contributors include business owners, Realtors and a $25 donation from former commissioner John Thrumston. Other campaign donation highlights, according to online records: Greene loaned his campaign $500 so far. In 2008, when he defeated incumbent Melanie Hensley in a hard-fought Republican primary, Greene committed $70,000 in personal funds to the campaign. He spent about half that. County commission District 1 Republican candidate Renee ChristopherMcPheeters shows contributions of $36,971. Nearly all of it $34,950 was a personal loan to the campaign plus $1,500 in-kind from Christopher-McPheeters for signs and cards. Reports also show she refunded $14,950 to herself. Crystal River Councilman Ron Kitchen, also in the District 1 race, has $3,280 in contributions, including a $200 personal loan. Kitchen told attendees at a candidates forum Saturday that he would not solicit donations, nor will he spend money on campaign signs. With Webb running for sheriff, there is no incumbent in the commission District 5 race. Three Republicans have pre-filed Anthony Vincent Brice, Tom Chaney and Michael Smallridge.

Last year, state laws were amended to add Port Citrus as the states 15th port. Under statute, the county has until July 1, 2014, to apply for a grant to perform a feasibility study regarding the establishment of a port in Citrus County. Part of going through the process of doing a port feasibility study and applying to DOT (Florida Department of Transportation) for funding is a requirement that we adopt a port element, Jones said. During the public comment session, Attorney Clark Stillwell said he represented Citrus Mining and Timber, whose president is Dixie Hollins who owns property on the north side of the barge canal, but would support the project wherever it is sited. The barge canal, Cross Florida Greenway, whatever label you want to use, is nothing more than a ditch, Stillwell said. Its not a natural water body. The environmental issues are negligible, if any; the appropriate use is recreation and industrial. All other ports in the state feature both recreational and industrial use, Stillwell said. This is nothing more than setting the initial steps in place so you can make the appropriate decision yes or no, Stillwell said. John Siefert, executive director of the Citrus County Economic Development Council, said his board urged the BOCC to move the port element forward. We feel it will have significant economic impact on Citrus Countys future, Siefert said. Speaking about the application was Theodora Rusnak, president of the Citrus County Council. I think if I came up here and said I was speaking in favor of this element, you probably would have all jumped out of your chairs and fallen over in a dead faint, Rusnak said. Rather than speak for or against, Rusnak preferred to ask questions about some of the contents of the element. In Section IX regarding infrastructure, Rusnak asked how the county could determine water and sewer service would be provided by the Charles A. Black water supply facility in Citrus Springs and Meadowcrest wastewater treatment facility. She said in previous hearings, she had heard that these questions would be answered in the feasibility study. She also asked about cost for laying lines to the barge canal. Rusnak raised questions about a port being redundant in competing with such ports at Port St. Joe in the Panhandle. Port St. Joe continues to be brought up in public presentations as one of the ports were going to model ourselves after, Rusnak said. But the description of Port St. Joe in the appendix to the element described it as once thriving. That doesnt sound like a real good model, Rusnak said. A current revitalization program at Port St. Joe also would compete with Port Citrus, Rusnak said. Rusnak pointed out that Port St. Petersburg, flanked by Port Tampa and Port Manatee, was becoming a yacht facility rather than compete. Vince Cautero, development services director, said the mention of the specific water and wastewater facilities was to show a way services could be provided. These statements dont lock you in, Cautero said. As for the issues of competition among ports, Cautero said consultants specializing in marketing, strategic planning and public relations would address them in the future.

of his famous I Have a Dream speech. Some gaze upon this figure in silence. Some smile and pull out cell phone cameras. Others chat about how closely the statue resembles King. And some are moved to tears. Just all that this man did so that we could do anything and be anything, said Brandolyn Brown, 26, of Cheraw, S.C., who visited the memorial Saturday with her aunt and cousin. I know it took a lot more than him to get to where we are, but he was a big part of the movement. Browns aunt, Gloria Drake, 60, of Cheraw, S.C., said she remembers King almost as though he was Moses leading his people to the promised land, even when there were so many reasons to doubt things would get better in an era of segregated buses, schools and lunch counters. It was really just hostile, she said. ... And then we had a man that comes to tell us things are going to be better. Dont be mad, dont be angry, she recalled Kings message. Just come together in peace. They said Kings lasting legacy is the reality of equality and now having a black president. Drake said President Barack Obama reminds her of King with his calmness even in the face of anger.The stage On Broadway, theatergoers are seeing a different version of King one who is more man than legend. The realism was refreshing for Donya Fairfax, who marveled after leaving a matinee of The Mountaintop that she had never really thought of King cursing, as actor Samuel L. Jackson does while portraying King in the play. He was human and not someone who was above fault, said the 48-year-old, visiting from Los Angeles. He cursed. He did things that people do behind closed doors. He was regular. For some, such a portrayal would seem to chip away at Kings memory. But for Natalie Pertz, who at 20 has come to know King only through the gauzy view of history, it seemed a precious reminder that it is not beyond the reach of the ordinary and the flawed to effect change. Its important for people our age to see that he wasnt this saint-like figure, she said. Its making you see that just because youre not perfect, it doesnt mean you cant do good. For M.E. Ward, seeing an in-the-flesh incarnation of King brought her back more than 40 years, to when she watched his soaring speeches on the television. No matter how human he seemed on stage, she said, he still carried a godly gift. Still charismatic, still an orator, and an individual who was able to move people through his speech, she said, adding that King enlightened the world with a message to be peaceful, to be patient, to be non-violent. No matter how distant his presence is now, that legacy is still very relevant, she said, in what she called a world of turmoil and violence, constant violence. Do people idealize him too much? They dont do it enough! said 64-year-old Elisabeth Carr, who cried through most of the play, feeling some of the pain she felt when the civil rights leader died. The younger generation, they dont know anymore. ... They dont understand what they went through. After traveling more than five hours with three friends all of them African-American to see Saturdays matinee, Mariko Tapper Taylor said seeing King in all his flaws did nothing to diminish his legacy. Its better to remember him as human, she said. Whos flawless? It just shows that theres another side of him. For her, the holiday remains very personal, Taylor said. One of her friends, Dr. Donnita Scott, chimed in: If it wasnt for him we probably wouldnt be doctors, she said, nodding at the group, which includes two ER physicians and a psychiatrist. Dr. Jan Thomas agreed: Were standing on that mountaintop.

Toward the end of the concert Shivers took Carter by the hand leading him through the church aisles as he interacted with the crowd.

O PINION Page A8 MONDAY, JANUARY 16, 2012 Undermining trust Re: Dr. William Dixons column, Stash your cash to supplement Medicare ( Chronicle Sunday, Jan. 8): Quoth the doctor: The sum of costs for Medicare and all the other components of Social Security programs account for the 40 percent of our annual (federal) budget that must be borrowed each year. Some quote some distortion, for not so much as a penny must be borrowed each year. Take 2010s budget year: 97 percent ($1.3 trillion) of the Medicare/Social Security programs costs ($1.4 trillion) were paid for by various incomes to the trust funds. In addition, at the end of 2010 the trusts held assets of $2.9 trillion. (www.ssa. gov/oact/TRSUM/index.html) The Social Security/Medicare funds are projected to be solvent though 2036, when the trusts will be depleted. A tweaking, maybe even an overhaul, will be necessary to remain solvent beyond 2036; however, that is no reason for the good doctor to grossly mislead the public via our local newspaper during our dreary economic downturn. James M. McIntosh Lecanto Pauls candidacyThink of any activity you pursue, and name one that is not in some way regulated by someone or some organization that does not know or care who you are. Ron Paul challenges conventional wisdom. We must as well. Other than providing for our security and ensuring we all follow the dicta of the Constitution, what else should our taxes pay for? We have come to expect the government to do everything for us, from getting rid of animal pests to dictating the design of showerheads, toilets, cars, chairs, baby cribs, food containers, eating habits and more. Conventional wisdom that we must intervene in other countries politics and affairs to protect our interests goes against the stated intent of the Founding Fathers, the founding documents and history. Talking heads tell us that Paul plans to abandon Israel. In 1967, Israel, without our help, soundly defeated the Arab nations in seven days. Now, they have nuclear weapons, but we demand that they play mother may I if they want to protect themselves. Please! As a member of our armed forces, I served in Saigon, Vietnam, in 1966-67. Then, and more so now, I saw that exercise as a futile waste of our treasure and blood. We lost 50,000 members of our youth and killed a good million Vietnamese for the fight against Communism. Now we have elected both a Congress and a president who arguably and unashamedly follow and preach the tenets we used to fight wars over. It was not the dead Vietnamese or our guys coming home with fewer body parts or in body bags who benefited from that war! Ditto for Afghanistan and Iraq. After decimating the Taliban in Afghanistan in retaliation for Sept. 11, we should have left. Iraq will return to being the Arab version of the Hatfields and McCoys and hate us even more even with our billiondollar embassy. The idea that a bankrupt nation can continue doing what is has been doing and survive is the very definition of insanity. Ron Paul tells us that over and over.Robin Humphrey I have something for you. In June 2010, I wrote in this space about a book, The New Jim Crow, by Michelle Alexander, which I called a troubling and profoundly necessary work. Alexander promulgated an explosive argument. Namely, that the so-called War on Drugs amounts to a war on African-American men and, more to the point, to a racial caste system nearly as restrictive, oppressive and omnipresent as Jim Crow itself. This because, although white Americans are far and away the nations biggest dealers and users of illegal drugs, African-Americans are far and away the ones most likely to be jailed for drug crimes. And when they are set free after doing their time, black men enter a legal purgatory where the right to vote, work, go to school or rent an apartment can be legally denied. Its as if George Wallace were still standing in the schoolhouse door. The New Jim Crow won several awards, enjoyed significant media attention, and was an apparent catalyst in the NAACPs decision last year to call for an end to the drug war. The book was a sensation, but we need it to be more. We need it to be a movement. As it happens and not exactly by coincidence, Alexanders book is being reissued in paperback this week as we mark the birthday of the man who led Americas greatest mass movement for social justice. In his battle against the original Jim Crow, Martin Luther King, in a sense, did what Alexander seeks to do: pour sunlight on an onerous condition that exists just beyond the periphery of most Americans sight. I want to help her do that. So heres the deal. Ill give you a copy of the book autographed by the author, no less free of charge. You dont even have to pay for shipping. All you have to do is tell me you want it and promise me youll read it. In fact, make that the subject line of the email you send to request your copy: I want it. Ill read it. Send it to lpitts@miami herald.com. Make sure to include your contact information and mailing address. At months end, Ill draw 50 names from a bucket and send out 50 books. If you work for the company that syndicates my column, or a newspaper that runs it, you cant participate. The same goes if youre my kin or my friend. On March 15, Alexander has agreed to appear with me at Books and Books in Coral Gables, Fla., where I will moderate a discussion with an audience. Youll also be able to submit questions via Twitter at #MiamiHeraldLive and Facebook. Video from the event will be posted on The Miami Heralds website, at www.miamiherald.com. And here, let me make one thing clear. This giveaway is underwritten neither by my employer nor by Alexanders publisher. Me, myself and I will pay for both books and shipping. I chose to do it that way in order to impress upon you how vital I personally feel it is that you read this book. No, I have no financial interest in its success. I do, however, have tremendous emotional interest. Half a century ago, Martin Luther King and a cadre of courageous idealists made a sustained appeal to this nations misplaced sense of justice, forced Americans to see an outrage that was right in front of them yet, somehow, beyond their line of sight. There could be no better homage to his memory than to do that again. Leonard Pitts is a columnist for the Miami Herald, 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL, 33132.

For many younger members of our society, Dr. King is best remembered for the soaring rhetoric his 1963 I Have A Dream speech at the Lincoln Memorial, and as we move further from the events of that time, the reality of the conflicts behind the civil rights movement begin to fade into history. But these conflicts were very real, and many have still not been fully resolved. Many trace the beginning of the civil rights movement to the 1954 Supreme Court decision that state laws establishing separate public schools for black and white students were unconstitutional. A year later, in Montgomery, Ala., brewing tensions over black riders being forced to sit at the back of city buses erupted when Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat near the front of the bus to a white rider. King, then a minister at a Montgomery church, provided leadership for a boycott of city buses. He later became the leader of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, one of the major organizations active in the civil rights movement. Throughout his career, King preached and practiced nonviolent confrontation. His house was once bombed, and he was arrested numerous times for his protests, but through it all, King counseled nonviolence. He explained his position in the famous Letter from a Birmingham Jail where he wrote that the purpose of nonviolent direct action is to create an atmosphere where the community is forced to confront an issue such as racial injustice. While on this day many will appropriately focus on King and his role in history, we should also be reminded that here in Citrus County we also had a leader who counseled nonviolent resistance to injustice and provided leadership in improving relations between people. The Rev. Leroy Bellamy, a Citrus County native who led Grace Temple Church of the Living God for more than 50 years until his death in 2004, was a community leader and a calming voice during sometimes-tense racial issues that arose during the civil rights movement years. He sheltered strangers, and worked with the homeless, and in racial conflicts he advocated non-violence and peaceful resistance. He helped organize the countys first Martin Luther King Jr. march, and received many honors, including Chronicle Citizen of the Year. Men such as these have made a difference in our society. Today, as we celebrate the accomplishments of a leader in the civil rights movement, we can reflect on many positive changes in attitudes. At the same time, we should ask whether we have achieved the dream articulated by King in 1963 that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

Well, its because of (the tea party members) in the Senate and the House of Representatives who say no to everything that might help the economy. One thing he hasnt done is gotten 4,500 guys killed and 330,000 wounded over weapons of mass destruction that didnt exist. Thank you, Mr. Bush.Hooray for Obama A caller today said, We dont want to talk about Obama. How about this: GDP up nine consecutive quarters, unemployment 8.2 when he started, 10.1 at its worst in October of 2009, now its 8.6 percent with 21 months of holding or improvement, bin Laden is gone along with most of the key al-Qaida folks, Gadhafi is out with no loss of American lives, U.S. combat troops are out of Iraq, we have a meaningful health care program, and, by the way, Obama has produced his birth certificate. Point of reference: The 27 months before Obama, unemployment went up monthly from 4.4 percent to 8 percent, GDP in the last three quarters of the previous administration was down an average of 5.5 percent per quarter. The previous administration almost destroyed our economy. We are talking; are you listening?

Associated PressNOME, Alaska Crews worked to build a path Sunday over a half-mile of Bering Sea ice for the final leg of a Russian tankers mission to deliver fuel to a town isolated amid one of the most severe Alaska winters in decades. The tanker was moored roughly a half-mile from Nomes harbor after a Coast Guard cutter cleared a path for it through hundreds of miles of a slow journey stalled by thick ice and strong ocean currents. The tanker got into position Saturday night, and ice disturbed by its journey had to freeze again so workers could create some sort of roadway to lay a hose that will transfer 1.3 million gallons of fuel from the tanker to the harbor in Nome. On Sunday, workers spent the morning walking around the vessel and checking the ice to make sure it was safe to lay the hose, which will take about four hours, said Jason Evans, board chairman of the Sitnasuak Native Corp. With the tanker and the Coast Guard ice breaker sitting just offshore and poised to deliver the fuel, Evans said the bulk of the missions biggest challenges were now behind the crew. Still, the final job of transferring fuel from the ship to the town comes with its own hurdles: In addition to waiting for the ice to freeze, crews must begin the transfer in daylight, a state mandate. And Nome has just five hours of daylight this time of year. In theory, it was possible and in reality, it now is done, Evans said of the journey. A storm prevented Nomes 3,500 residents from getting a fuel delivery by barge in November. Without the tanker delivery, supplies of diesel fuel, gasoline and home heating fuel were expected to run out in March and April, well before a barge delivery again in late May or June. The especially harsh winter has left snow piled up 10 feet or higher against the wood-sided buildings in Nome, a former gold rush town that is the final stop on the Iditarod dog sled race. On Sunday, everything was covered in a layer of windblown snow and vehicles looked frozen in place, as though they havent been moved in weeks. The tanker began its journey from Russia in mid-December, picking up diesel fuel in South Korea before heading to Dutch Harbor, Alaska, where it took on unleaded gasoline. Late Thursday, the vessels stopped offshore and began planning the transfer to Nome, more than 500 miles from Anchorage on Alaskas west coast. Despite the complicated logistics of delivering fuel by sea in winter, Sitnasuak opted for the extra delivery after determining that it would be much less costly and more practical than flying fuel to Nome. Mark Smith, CEO of Vitus Marine LLC, the fuel supplier that arranged to have the Russian tanker and its crew deliver the fuel, described the challenges as substantial, partly because winter has been especially harsh in the region this year. He said that moving the tanker even with the help of the cutter through more than 300 miles of pack-ice was a very profound obstacle. It seems that every day brought a new crisis, he said. Opinion appeared to be divided in Nome, where some welcomed the arrival of the tanker and others thought it was a manufactured and unnecessary crisis. Cari Miller was among the residents unconvinced a real crisis was at hand. The 43-year-old mother, who has lived in Nome for eight years, said she believed that another fuel provider in town had plenty of fuel for the community. We do not have a fuel crisis, she said. It wasnt necessary. Kwan Yi, 40, a maintenance worker at the Polaris Bar in Nome, faulted Sitnasuak for not arranging for barge delivery earlier last fall, but said the town was in need of fuel. He said he was pleased the fuel tanker had arrived after struggling with frozen pipes and gas leaks. The crew of the 370-foot tanker Renda was working to ensure the safe transfer of the fuel through a segmented hose that will be laid on top of the ice to the harbor, located about 2,100 feet from the ship, Wadlow said in a telephone interview from Nome on Saturday night. Once crews create a suitable path for the hose to rest on, its segments will have to be bolted together and inspected before the fuel can begin to flow. Though the transfer must start during daylight, it can continue in darkness, Betty Schorr of the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation has said. It could be finished within 36 hours if everything goes smoothly, but it could take as long as five days, she said. Evans said once the hose is laid, personnel will walk its entire length every 30 minutes to check for leaks. Each segment of hose will have its own spill containment area, and extra absorbent boom will be on hand in case of a spill.

Snowy day Associated Press Gary Lorentson carries a street-closure sign Sunday in Seattle. Several inches of snow fell quickly Sunday morning, snarling traffic and clogging roadways. Dad of homeless killings suspect also homeless YORBA LINDA, Calif. The father of the man suspected of killing homeless men in Southern California is himself homeless and says his son last week showed him a picture of one victim as a warning of the danger of being on the streets. Refugio Ocampo, 49, also told The Associated Press on Sunday that his son came back a changed man after serving with the Marines in Iraq, expressing disillusionment and becoming ever darker as he struggled to find his way as a civilian. His 23-year-old son, Itzcoatl Ocampo, was arrested Friday in connection with the serial killings of four homeless men since late December.

From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A10 MONDAY, JANUARY 16, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressBEIRUT The U.N. chief demanded Sunday that Syrias president stop killing his own people and said the old order of one-man rule and family dynasties is over in the Middle East on a day when activists said 27 people died. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, delivering the keynote address at a conference in Beirut on democracy in the Arab world, said the revolutions of the Arab Spring show people will no longer accept tyranny. Today, I say again to President (Bashar) Assad of Syria: Stop the violence. Stop killing your people, Ban said. Ban has been highly critical of the Assad governments deadly crackdown on civilian protesters since the killings began unlike the U.N. Security Council. That body is deeply divided. The U.S. and European nations demand strong condemnation and possible sanctions against Assad, but Russia and China are opposed. Bans speech Sunday was his toughest against the continued survival of authoritarian regimes in the face of the growing international clamor for democracy. Thousands of people have been killed in the governments crackdown on a 10-month-old uprising, which has turned increasingly militarized in recent months with a growing risk of civil war. Syria agreed last month to an Arab League plan that calls for a halt to the crackdown, the withdrawal of heavy weaponry, such as tanks, from cities, the release of all political prisoners, and allowing foreign journalists and human rights workers in. About 200 Arab League observers are working in Syria to verify whether the government is abiding by its agreement to end the military crackdown on dissent. Observers visited the coastal city of Banias and the restive town of Maaret al-Numan in northern Syria Sunday, where they were met with thousands of anti-Assad protesters chanting for his downfall. Amateur video posted by activists on the Internet showed the monitors watching and filming from a balcony as a large protest unfolded on the streets below. Victory for our revolution! the protesters shouted. The monitors also visited the Damascus suburb of Zabadani, which activists say has come under an intense crackdown in the past few days. The authorities pulled out tanks and stopped firing just before the observers arrived, said one activist in Zabadani, who declined to be named for fear of reprisals. But they saw with their own eyes the destruction and fear, he said, adding people took to the streets in huge protests while the monitors were there. The presence of the observers has not put a stop to bloodshed and the U.S. and many in the Syrian opposition say killings have accelerated. The U.N. says about 400 people have been killed in the last three weeks alone, on top of an earlier estimate of more than 5,000 killed since March. UN demands Syria stop violence Secretary General says era of one-man rule is finished Associated PressGIGLIO, Italy Maritime authorities, passengers and mounting evidence pointed Sunday toward the captain of a cruise liner that ran aground and capsized off the Tuscan coast, amid accusations that he abandoned ship before everyone was safely evacuated and was showing off when he steered the vessel far too close to shore. Divers searching the murky depths of the partially submerged Costa Concordia found the bodies of two elderly men still in their life jackets, bringing the confirmed death toll to five. At least 15 people were still missing, including two Americans. The recovered bodies were discovered at an emergency gathering point near the restaurant where many of the 4,200 on board were dining when the luxury liner struck rocks or a reef off the tiny island of Giglio. The Italian news agency ANSA reported the dead were an Italian and a Spaniard. Still, there were glimmers of hope: The rescue of three survivors a young South Korean couple on their honeymoon and a crew member brought to shore in a dramatic airlift some 36 hours after the grounding late Friday. Meanwhile, attention focused on the captain, who was spotted by Coast Guard officials and passengers fleeing the scene even as the chaotic and terrifying evacuation was under way. The ships Italian owner, a subsidiary of Carnival Cruise lines, issued a statement late Sunday saying there appeared to be significant human error on the part of the captain, Francesco Schettino, which resulted in these grave consequences. Authorities were holding Schettino for suspected manslaughter and a prosecutor confirmed Sunday they were also investigating allegations the captain abandoned the stricken liner before all the passengers had escaped. According to the Italian navigation code, a captain who abandons a ship in danger can face up to 12 years in prison. A French couple who boarded the Concordia in Marseille, Ophelie Gondelle and David Du Pays, told the Associated Press they saw the captain in a lifeboat, covered by a blanket, well before all the passengers were off the ship. The commander left before and was on the dock before everyone was off, said Gondelle, 28, a French military officer. Normally the commander should only leave at the end, said Du Pays, a police officer who said he helped an injured passenger to a rescue boat. I did what I could. Coast Guard officers later spotted Schettino on land as the evacuation unfolded. The officers urged him to return to his ship and honor his duty to stay aboard until everyone was safely off the vessel, but he ignored them, Coast Guard Cmdr. Francesco Paolillo said. Schettino insisted he didnt leave the liner early, telling Mediaset television that he had done everything he could to save lives. We were the last ones to leave the ship, he said.

Associated PressCOLUMBIA, S.C. A splintered conservative vote in South Carolina could pave the way for Mitt Romney to win this weeks pivotal primary, some rivals said Sunday, acknowledging an outcome that prominent state lawmakers suggested could end the nomination fight. I think the only way that a Massachusetts moderate can get through South Carolina is if the vote is split, said Newt Gingrich, portraying himself as the lone conservative with a realistic chance of beating Romney in the first-in-the South contest. Polls show Romney, the former Massachusetts governors who struggled to a fourth-place finish in South Carolina during his 2008 White House run, with a lead heading into Saturdays vote. The state has a large population of evangelicals and other conservative Christians, and concerns arose four years ago about his Mormon faith. But Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Rick Perry all said Romney, after victories in Iowa and New Hampshire, continued to benefit from the fractured GOP field and the failure of social conservatives to fully coalesce around a single alternative. If for some reason hes not derailed here and Mitt Romney wins South Carolina ... I think it should be over, said the states senior senator, Republican Lindsey Graham. He added, Id hope the party would rally around him if he did in fact win South Carolina. Vote split could help Romney in South Carolina WASHINGTON Republican presidential hopeful Rick Perry on Sunday accused the Obama administration of over-the-top rhetoric and disdain for the military in its condemnation of a video that purportedly shows four Marines urinating on corpses in Afghanistan. Texas Gov. Perry said the Marines involved should be reprimanded but not prosecuted on criminal charges. Obviously, 18-, 19-year-old kids make stupid mistakes all too often. And thats whats occurred here, Perry told CNNs State of the Union. He later added: Whats really disturbing to me is the kind of over-the-top rhetoric from this administration and their disdain for the military.Perry speaks out on Marine video From wire reports

Miami (15-3, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) led 41-22 a minute into the second half, but Florida State rallied to tie the game at 57 on Cierra Bravards free throw with 37 seconds left. Shenise Johnson led Miami with 24 points. Johnsons final basket of the half gave her 2,000 in her career. Natasha Howard led Florida State (10-9, 2-3) with 22 points and a career-high 17 rebounds. Miamis last win in Tallahassee came on Jan. 29, 1987. South Africas Grace wins Joburg OpenJOHANNESBURG South Africas Branden Grace won his first European Tour title Sunday with a par 72 for a one-shot victory at the Joburg Open. Grace had a bogey and birdie on the East Course at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club to edge Englishman Jamie Elson, finishing at 17-under 270. The 23-year-old Grace had his three-shot, third-round lead cut to one when Elson made a 30-foot putt for eagle on No. 18 to finish with a 63. Elson had seven birdies along with his eagle, including six in his first eight holes. But Grace, one of 27 players to complete his third round in the morning because of rain delays, held on with nine straight pars coming home for his second professional win after a 2010 victory on South Africas Sunshine Tour. I played really nicely, I hit the ball superb I think, and the putter was just cold, Grace said. I couldnt get the speed of the greens. Fortunately, at the end of the day, it was enough. Scottish pair David Drysdale (67) and Marc Warren (68) were part of a six-way tie for third. Retief Goosen had a 73 and finished 16th, seven shots behind the leader. Organizers were forced to play catch-up for most of the tournament after rain and darkness caused the first three rounds to be completed the next day.Fine accuser admits lying to police SYRACUSE, N.Y. A prison inmate who accused a former Syracuse University assistant basketball coach of sexually molesting him more than 40 years ago admits he made up the claim. The accuser, Floyd VanHooser, states in a letter that he lied to police and in December interviews with The Associated Press and The Post-Standard newspaper of Syracuse. He said he wanted to get back at the coach, Bernie Fine, because he did not hire a lawyer to help VanHooser fight a criminal conviction. Fine had helped raise the 56year-old VanHooser. Two other men accused Fine late last year of abusing them as children, but the statute of limitations has expired. Fine was fired after they came forward. The newspaper received two copies of the letter Thursday.Heat unsure of Wades status after ankle sprain MIAMI The Miami Heat are not sure if guard Dwyane Wade will be able to play Tuesday against San Antonio because of a sprained right ankle. Wade also has been dealing with a sore foot and strained calf muscle. Teammate Chris Bosh says Wade should not play until hes healthy again and the team will hold it down in his absence. Miami has lost three straight games and entered Sunday in third place in the Southeast Division and sixth overall in the Eastern Conference. Wade turned the ankle late in Miamis loss at Denver on Friday night. X-rays were negative, but Wade initially feared it was broken. Its a busy week for Miami, with the Los Angeles Lakers coming in Thursday and the surging Philadelphia 76ers visiting Saturday.From wire reports T IM D AHLBERG AP Sports ColumnistR umble, young man, rumble, used to be his battle cry. But Muhammad Ali is an old man now, ravaged by his years in the ring and his decades of braving Parkinsons disease. The voice that used to bellow that he was The Greatest is largely muted now, save for those times in the mornings when he is able to whisper his thoughts. The face, though, is still that of the most recognizable man on Earth. Maybe not as finely chiseled as it was in his prime, but close enough. Its not like he doesnt look like himself, said his oldest daughter, Maryum May May Ali. Its the same face; the Parkinsons hasnt affected that. Ali turns 70 on Tuesday, giving Baby Boomers who grew up with him one more reason to reflect on their own advancing years. Hes fought Parkinsons the way he fought the late Joe Frazier, never giving an inch. But its a fight he cant win, and nearly 30 years of living with it has taken a heavy toll. His days at home with wife, Lonnie, in a gated community near Phoenix, generally follow the same routine: He gets out of bed and takes a shower before easing into his favorite chair for hours at a time. Sometimes he will watch videos of his old fights. The hands will move, eyes will twitch, as he remembers the magnificent fighter and physical specimen he once was. I always say the only person who likes to watch old Muhammad Ali fights more than me is him, said John Ramsey, a Louisville radio and television personality who has been a close friend of Alis for more than 30 years. His memory is better than mine and hes very sharp. His sense of humor is still there, too. Through it all he remains a proud man. There are no complaints. No time spent bemoaning his fate. It is, the devout Muslim would say, Gods will. He would always just say to his family, These are the cards I was dealt, so dont be sad, Maryum Ali said. He never played the victim. There was never any Woe is me. That he is still alive so long after being diagnosed with the degenerative disease may be a tribute to the athleticism and inner strength that helped him stop Frazier on a brutally hot morning in the Philippines and helped him knock out the fearsome George Foreman in Africa. Among the heavyweights of his generation he was a big man, standing 6-foot-2 and usually weighing in at around 210 pounds.

They stole it away from the Houston Texans. Ed Reed sealed a 20-13 victory Sunday with Baltimores fourth takeaway, and when he finally limped off the field, the Ravens were assured their second trip to the AFC championship game in four seasons. Baltimore (13-4) will visit Tom Brady and the New England Patriots next Sunday, with the winner moving on to the Super Bowl. We know we have a big test next week, linebacker Ray Lewis said. Tom is playing excellent up there, and what they did to the Broncos last night, I think they sent a message to whoever was coming up there. So, weve got our hands full. The Patriots lead the series 6-1, but Baltimores lone win came in the postseason. The Ravens have been in the playoffs for four years running, but this was their first home game since 2006. It was anything but easy. Baltimore forced two turnovers in the first quarter in building a 17-3 lead thanks to touchdown passes by Joe Flacco, and interceptions by Lardarius Webb and Reed in the fourth quarter helped the advantage stand up. We knew what was coming, Lewis said. This young team, they are so freakin fiery. Theyve got so many great pieces over there. I just take my hat off to them, just simply for the way they came out and fought today. More importantly, I take my hat off to my team, as well, because we came out and we knew it was going to be tough. We made some plays, they made some plays and at the end of the game, we made the plays that counted. One week earlier, in the first playoff game in Texans history, Houston (11-7) didnt commit a turnover in a 31-10 home rout of Cincinnati. Against Baltimore, the Texans couldnt hold onto the ball and quickly fell behind by two touchdowns. Arian Foster ran for 132 yards, the first player to rush for 100 yards in the playoffs against the Ravens. But rookie quarterback T.J. Yates threw three interceptions.

Associated PressGREEN BAY, Wis. For Eli Manning and the New York Giants, Lambeau Field has become a familiar launching pad. After beating the Green Bay Packers at home for the second time in four years, they only hope this trip ends the same way at the Super Bowl. Manning threw three touchdown passes and the Giants shocked the Packers 37-20 in an NFC divisional playoff game Sunday. Manning threw for 330 yards, sending the Giants to San Francisco for the NFC championship game next Sunday night. The Packers might have been the reigning Super Bowl champs, but the Giants might be the hottest team in the NFL. I think were a dangerous team, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. I like where we are and how were playing. The Giants stunned the Packers with a touchdown off a long heave from Manning to Hakeem Nicks just before halftime, then knocked them out with a late touchdown off a turnover.

Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are on the same side of the draw for the first time since 2005. Third-seeded Federer, a four-time Australian Open winner, was set to play on Rod Laver Arena in a Mondaynight match against Russian qualifier Alexander Kudryavtsev. Second-ranked Nadal had the last match on Hisense Arena against Russian Alex Kuznetsov. After telling a pre-tournament news conference Sunday he had no intention of being the frontman for the players grievances because it has reflected badly on him in the past, Nadal was then critical of 16-time Grand Slam winner Federer in a Spanish-language interview. Responding to the suggestion that Federer disliked players complaining openly about problems on the tour because it tarnished the image of tennis, Nadal said he took another view. No, I totally disagree, he said in comments translated from Spanish. For him its good to say nothing. Everything positive. Its all well and good for me, I look like a gentleman, and the rest can burn themselves. Associated Press Victoria Azarenka of Belarus makes a backhand return to Britains Heather Watson on Monday during their first round match at the Australian Open in Melbourne. Azarenka breezes through center court opener The win came four years after the Giants beat a Brett Favre-led Packers team in the NFC title game. It wasnt nearly as frigid this time around, and the Packers vulnerable defense seemed to be waiting to get sliced up. Manning found six different receivers against a porous Packers defense. But Manning did the most damage with his throws to Nicks, who caught seven passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns. Nicks biggest play was a 66-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter. His score at the end of the half came on a 37-yard pass into the end zone with defenders all around. It was a big momentum play for them, but we were not deflated as a football team, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. The Giants defense also was able to defuse the bigplay abilities of Aaron Rodgers and the Packers defense. Rodgers was 26 of 46 for 264 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception. He also was the Packers leading rusher with 66 yards on seven carries. Meanwhile, the Packers past problems with dropped balls by their talented group of wide receivers returned at the worst time imaginable. And while the Packers defense has been porous all season, giving up far too many yards and big plays, theyve typically made up for it by forcing turnovers. This time, the Packers were the ones giving the ball away. Green Bay lost three fumbles, including one on a rare giveaway by Rodgers. The Giants also sacked Rodgers four times. With the Packers trailing 20-10 at halftime but finally beginning to look like themselves on offense to start the second half, Osi Umenyiora swatted the ball away from Rodgers, and Deon Grant recovered the fumble at the Green Bay 37. But the mistake didnt cost the Packers points, and Green Bay cut the lead to seven points on a 35-yard field goal by Mason Crosby late in the third quarter. The Packers put together another drive early in the fourth quarter, but Michael Boley and Umenyiora combined to sack Rodgers on fourth-and-5 in Giants territory. After carving up the Packers in the first half, the Giants offense hit a lull in the second half. But they broke out of it to drive for a 35yard field goal by Lawrence Tynes to take a 23-13 lead with 7:48 left to play. Packers running back Ryan Grant then fumbled after catching a pass and the Giants recovered, taking the ball back deep into Green Bay territory. Manning then threw a 4yard touchdown pass to Mario Manningham and the Giants took a 30-13 lead. Rodgers rallied the Packers for a 16-yard touchdown pass to Donald Driver, cutting the lead to 30-20 with 4:46 left. The Packers then tried on onside kick, but the Giants Victor Cruz recovered. New Yorks Brandon Jacobs scored on a 14-yard run with 2:36 left to put the game away.

The Capitals, struggling so mightily that they fired coach Bruce Boudreau in late November, have won three straight overall and seven in a row at home, moving them even with the Florida Panthers for the top spot in the division.

David Lee scored 24 points and Monta Ellis added 22 to help the Golden State Warriors win on the road for the first time this season, 99-91 over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night. Golden State won at Detroit for the second time in its last 17 visits. Greg Monroe had 25 points and eight rebounds for the Pistons. The Warriors trailed 48-44 at halftime but went on an 8-0 run early in the third quarter and never trailed after that. They led by five early in the fourth before scoring 10 points in a row to make it 88-73. Ellis scored 17 points in the second half. Jazz 106, Nuggets 96 DENVER Paul Millsap had 26 points and 12 rebounds, Al Jefferson added 18 points and 12 rebounds and the Utah Jazz beat the Denver Nuggets 106-96 on Sunday night.

Warriors top Pistons; Milsap pushes Jazz over Nuggets Wagner rallies, wins Sony Open Associated PressHONOLULU Johnson Wagner worked so hard in the offseason that he told friends he was going to win early in the year, and he hardly wasted any time. Wagner played bogey-free over the last 12 holes, a winning recipe on a tough day at Waialae, and closed with a 3-under 67 to pull away from a half-dozen contenders and win the Sony Open on Sunday. Wagner was among six players who had a share of the lead at some point in the final round. He was the only guy to stay there, and wound up with a two-shot win over Carl Pettersson, Sean OHair, Harrison Frazar and Charles Howell III. Coming into the year, Wagner only had seven top 10s in 139 starts on tour, including two wins. He opened the year at Kapalua with a tie for ninth, and then rallied from a two-shot deficit to win the Sony Open. Frazar had the best chance. He had the outright lead briefly after a birdie at No. 10, then made pars the rest of the way for a 67. Pettersson overcame a double bogey on the second hole and finished with four birdies on the last six holes, also for a 67. OHair had a 30-foot eagle putt on the 18th that burned the edge. He had to settle for a 67, while Howell birdied his last hole for 69 to join the group tied for second. Jeff Maggert and Matt Every, tied for the lead going into the last day, both collapsed early. Every was 4 over through six holes and rallied for a 72. Maggert missed a slew of short putts and shot 74.

Hes stooped now and weighs much less. But his arms are those of a younger man, and his body still shows signs of the magnificent sculpting of days gone by. Every Sunday, his doctor in Phoenix makes a house call to make sure hes doing OK. The Parkinsons has affected him a lot, one of things he has is a lot of difficulty speaking, said Dr. Abraham Lieberman, director of the Muhammad Ali Parkinsons Center in Phoenix. But hes never downbeat about it. Hes a tremendous inspiration to everyone. In November, a few days after he traveled to Philadelphiato say goodbye to Frazier, Ali was rushed to a Phoenixarea hospital. His family later brushed it off as nothing more than dehydration. The fact he was quickly back resting at home didnt surprise those who really know him. Ali was always at his best when things were the worst, said Gene Kilroy, his former business manager and good friend. Its the kind of man he is. Ali, his daughter says, is in the late stages of Parkinsons now, a time when doctors say patients are particularly susceptible to things that can kill them. Pneumonia is the leading cause of death among Parkinsons patients. The increasing inability to swallow can be fatal, and falls are always a major concern. Hes had a very visible and courageous fight against this disease. He has not given up, said Dr. Blair Ford, a professor of clinical neurology at Columbia University, who specializes in Parkinsons research. How Ali got the disease will never be known, because not much is known about the cause of Parkinsons. What is known is that patients gradually lose brain cells that produce dopamine, a chemical key to the circuitry that controls muscle movement, and the treatmentis generally dopamine-boosting medication. Ali once calculated he took 29,000 punches to the head in a career that spanned more than two decades. Lieberman says he doesnt believe Ali got Parkinsons because of repeated blows to the head because he doesnt have classic Dementia Pugilista, which afflicted the late Jerry Quarry, whom Ali defeated twice. Ali is coherent and his thought process is still intact, though the Parkinsons forces him to communicate more with gestures instead of words. The festivities for his 70th birthday include a Feb. 18 bash at the MGM Grand arena in Las Vegas, where celebrities and former fighters like Foreman, Ken Norton, Leon Spinks and Roberto Duran will pay tribute to him. Manny Pacquiao may sing a song, and millions of dollars will be raised for brain research. People will come because hes Muhammad Ali. But theyll also be there because of the person he is the kind of person who never turned down an autograph. The kind of person who tried to help the less fortunate or the sick. The kind of person who never gets down because he wants to keep those around him up. I would ask him how he stays so positive, Ramsey said. He would say, Ive got the best known face on the planet. Im the three-time heavyweight champion of the world. Ive got no reason to be down.

From there, Neil Rackers 50-yard field goal try hit the crossbar and dropped into the end zone. Baltimore then launched a drive in which seldomused Lee Evans made a sensational one-handed catch for a 30-yard gain on thirdand-5 from the Houston 39. On fourth-and-goal inside the 1, Ray Rice was stuffed by linebacker Tim Dobbins for no gain. The Texans couldnt move the ball, and the Ravens took the ensuing punt at the Houston 49. But three plays netted only 4 yards, and Sam Koch punted for the seventh time. Minutes later, the Ravens went three and out for the fourth time in five secondhalf possessions. Fortunately for Baltimore, the defense compensated for the teams inability to add to its early lead. Webbs second interception came with 7 1/2 minutes left and the Ravens clinging to 17-13 advantage. Baltimore moved 45 yards to get a field goal by Billy Cundiff with 2:52 left. Reed ended the Texans subsequent drive with his eighth career playoff interception inside the 5-yard line. RAVENSContinued from Page B1 Associated PressCLEMSON, S.C. Andre Dawkins scored 24 points and made five 3pointers to help No. 8 Duke beat Clemson 73-66 Sunday night. The Blue Devils (15-2, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) overcame a sluggish start to pull away from the Tigers (9-8, 1-2) even though scoring leader Austin Rivers finished with 4 points, more than 10 fewer than his average. Duke had to overcome a late rally by Clemson, which cut a 13-point lead to 68-64 in the final minute on two 3pointers by Andre Young. But Dawkins made three foul shots down the stretch as the Blue Devils beat Clemson for the 26th time in the last 28 meetings. Milton Jennings had 16 points for the Tigers and Devin Booker added 12 points and 13 rebounds. No. 5 Ohio State 80, No. 7 Indiana 63 COLUMBUS, Ohio Lenzelle Smith Jr. more than doubled his career high with 28 on Sunday to lead No. 5 Ohio State to a surprisingly easy 8063 victory over seventh-ranked Indiana. Jared Sullinger added 16 points, William Buford scored 12 and Deshaun Thomas had 11 for the Buckeyes (16-3, 4-2 Big Ten), who were coming off a loss at Illinois on Tuesday night. Several players questioned their teammates commitment and effort after that game. There was no doubt about either on Sunday as Ohio State took command early and was never threatened. Cody Zeller had 16 points, Christian Watford 13 and Jordan Hulls 11 for the Hoosiers (15-3, 3-3), who had lost at home to unranked Minnesota on Wednesday night.No. 11 Georgetown 69, St. Johns 49 NEW YORK Hollis Thompsonscored all of his 20 points in the second half and No. 11 Georgetown snapped a twogame losing streak with a 69-49 victory over St. Johns on Sunday at Madison Square Garden. Thompson, the Big Easts leading 3-point shooter at 52.4 percent, missed four from long range in the first half but he only was off on one of his five attempts in the second, including one that broke an 8-0 run that had brought the Red Storm within 48-45 with 6:36 to play. Jason Clark had 15 points and freshman Otto Porter added 13 points and 10 rebounds for the Hoyas (14-3, 4-2 Big East), who had lost to West Virginia and Cincinnati after an 11-game winning streak. Freshman Moe Harkless had 21 points and 10 rebounds for St. Johns (8-9, 2-4), but fouled out with 5:15 to play. Blue Devils roll past Clemson Associated PressAUSTIN, Texas Brittney Griner turned in another dominant performance, tying her season high with 32 points to go with 13 rebounds as No. 1 Baylor stayed unbeaten Sunday with an easy 77-59 win over Texas. Griner made 12 of her first 14 shots and Baylor (170, 4-0 Big 12) led by 20 by halftime. Baylor used an early 19-0 run to blow the game open. Destiny Williams added 21 points for the Lady Bears, who have allowed only two teams, Tennessee and Connecticut, to play them within 10 points this season. Chassidy Fussell scored 20 points to lead Texas (11-5, 1-3) which stayed in the bottom third of the conference with the loss. No. 6 Tennessee 87, No. 25 Vanderbilt 64KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Shekinna Stricklen scored 20 points before injuring her right knee late in Tennessees win over Vanderbilt. Stricklen, a preseason AllAmerica who leads Tennessee with 15.3 points, hit the floor clutching her knee and screaming after going for a rebound with 3 minutes left and the Lady Vols comfortably ahead. Stricklen was carried to the locker room by team trainers, it appeared to be just a strain, but she will be re-evaluated Monday. The Lady Volunteers (13-4, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) held a 45-43 lead when she hit a layup with 15:17 to go, launching a 16-2 run that put the game out of reach for the Commodores. Isabelle Harrison stole the ball from Vandys Christina Foggie, and Ariel Massengale hit a layup on the break to make it 61-45 with 10:26 to play.

Kelya Snowden scored 15 points to lead Kentucky to a win over South Carolina. The Wildcats (16-2, 5-0 Southeastern) came in as the SECs leading offense, but were held to 15 below their average by the leagues best defense. Still, the 66 points were the most the Gamecocks have given up all season. Kentucky showed it can play defense too, forcing 28 turnovers and holding South Carolina (14-4, 3-2) to just three fields goals over 10 minutes after the Gamecocks took a 4536 lead with 11 minutes to go in the game. The Wildcats 5-0 SEC start is their best ever and they are now alone atop the SEC. Ieasia Walker led South Carolina with 14 points. Penn State 93, No. 15 Nebraska 73 LINCOLN, Neb. Maggie Lucas scored 24 points to lead five Nittany Lions in double figures as Penn State overwhelmed Nebraska in the second half.

Associated PressThe black-and-white silent film The Artist came away with the most prizes with three wins at the Golden Globes, but the show spread the love around among a broad range of films and TV shows. Wins for The Artist included best musical or comedy and best actor in a musical or comedy for Jean Dujardin, while the family drama The Descendants claimed two awards, as best drama and dramatic actor for George Clooney. Other acting winners were Meryl Streep, Michelle Williams, Christopher Plummer, and Octavia Spencer, while Martin Scorsese earned the directing honor. Streep won for dramatic actress as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady, her eight win at the Globes. Williams won for actress in a musical or comedy as Marilyn Monroe in My Week with Marilyn, 52 years after Monroes win for the same prize at the Globes. Dujardin won for musical or comedy actor for the silent film The Artist. The supporting-acting Globes went to Plummer as an elderly widower who comes out as gay in the father-son drama Beginners and Spencer as a brassy housekeeper joining other black maids to share stories about life with their white employers in the 1960s Deep South tale The Help. With regard to domestics in this country, now and then, I think Dr. King said it best: All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance. And I thank you for recognizing that with our film, Spencer said. Scorsese won for the Paris adventure Hugo. It was the third directing Globe in the last 10 years for Scorsese, who previously won for Gangs of New York and The Departed and received the shows Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement two years ago. He won over a field of contenders that included Michel Hazanavicius, who had been considered by many in Hollywood as a favorite for his blackand-white silent film The Artist. Williams offered thanks for giving her the same award Monroe once won and joked that her young daughter put up with bedtime stories for six months spoken in Monroes voice. I consider myself a mother first and an actress second, so the person I most want to thank is my daughter, my little girl, whose bravery and exuberance is the example I take with me in my work and my life, Williams said. Dujardin became the first star in a silent film to earn a major Hollywood prize since the early days of film. He won as a silent-era star whose career unravels amid the rise of talking pictures in the late 1920s. Its a breakout role in Hollywood for Dujardin, a star back home in France but little known to U.S. audiences previously. His French credits include The Artist creator Michel Hazanavicius spy spoofs OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies and OSS 117: Lost in Rio. The Artist, which led the Globes with six nominations, also won the musical-score prize for composer Ludovic Bource but lost out on three other awards, including the screenplay prize for Michel Hazanavicius. Woody Allen won the screenplay honor for his romantic fantasy Midnight in Paris, the filmmakers biggest hit in decades. Never a fan of movie awards, Allen was a noshow at the Globes, where he previously won the screenplay honor for 1985s The Purple Rose of Cairo. The wins boost Williams, Spencer and Plummers prospects for slots at next months Academy Awards, whose nominations come out Jan. 24. The Oscars are an honor for which Monroe herself never was nominated, though she was a twotime nominee at the Globes and won for best actress in a musical or comedy for 1959s Some Like It Hot. In My Week with Marilyn, Williams plays Monroe as an insecure performer struggling to establish herself as a genuine actress rather than a movie star sexpot just a couple of years before Some Like It Hot. The film chronicles Monroes contentious time shooting the 1957 romance The Prince and the Showgirl alongside exasperated director and co-star Laurence Olivier. Like Monroe, Oscar consideration has been elusive for the 82year-old Plummer, who has been nominated for Hollywoods top honor only once in his 60year career two years ago, for the Leo Tolstoy drama The Last Station. I must praise my distinguished competitors, who whom I have the greatest admiration and to whom I apologize most profusely, said Plummer, who added warm regards to Beginners star and Scottish actor Ewan McGregor. I want to salute my partner, Ewan, that wily Scot, Ewan My Hearts in the Highlands McGregor, that scene-stealing swine from the outer Hebrides. Plummer is regarded as one of the finest Shakespearean stage actors of the last half century. His film roles range from Austrian widower Captain von Trapp in The Sound of Music and Tolstoy in The Last Station to newsman Mike Wallace in The Insider and a treacherous Klingon general in Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country. He also costarred in the current thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The prize for best animated film went to Steven Spielbergs action tale The Adventures of Tintin, a Paramount-Sony co-production that dealt the first Globes loss to Disney unit Pixar Animation. Pixar films such as Ratatouille, WALL-E and Toy Story 3 had won all five previous times since the Globes added the category. Spielberg thanked his producing partner on the film, The Lord of the Rings creator Peter Jackson, along with both studios behind the film, based on what the director pointed out was a series of picture books by Belgian writer Herge that started 80 years ago. I would like to thank two studios that really proved the adage that Peter and I could make the telephone book if we wanted to, said Spielberg, whose World War I epic War Horse is nominated for best drama. The Iranian drama A Separation was chosen as best foreignlanguage film. Writer-director Asghar Farhadi uses a divorcing couples domestic troubles with a young child and an aging parent as the means to examine gender, religious and class distinctions in contemporary Iran. Ricky Gervais, who has ruffled feathers at past shows with sharp wisecracks aimed at Hollywoods elite and the Globes show itself, returned as host for the third-straight year. He started with some slams at the Globes as Hollywoods secondbiggest film ceremony, after the Oscars. Gervais joked that the Globes are just like the Oscars, but without all that esteem. Madonna, Julie Frost and Jimmy Harry won the Globe for best song for Masterpiece from the King Edward-Wallis Simpson drama W.E., which Madonna also directed. Among television winners were Kate Winslet as best actress in a miniseries or movie in Mildred Pierce, Idris Elba as best actor in a miniseries or movie in Luther, Laura Dern as comedy or musical actress in Enlightened, Kelsey Grammer as dramatic actor in Boss, Homeland for drama series and Downton Abbey for miniseries or movie. With the Oscars choosing up to 10 best-picture contenders, The Artist could have some other comic company there. Globe musical or comedy nominees Midnight in Paris and Bridesmaids also have solid Oscar nomination prospects. FX networks big risk with Sheen PASADENA, Calif. The head of the FX network said Sunday he still hasnt seen a script for Charlie Sheens new sitcom Anger Management, which is due to premiere in June. Thats a little late, conceded John Landgraf FX president and general manager. It illustrates the grand gamble made by the cable network, one with a potentially big payoff. FX usually produces its own series, and Landgraf said hes never ordered one without seeing a pilot episode, much less a script. Anger Management, loosely based on the 2003 movie about a troubled therapist who disrupts his patients lives, is produced by Debmar-Mercury, a subsidiary of the Lionsgate production company. Landgraf said he has faith in Bruce Helford former producer of The Drew Carey Show and the creative force behind the new series. Colbert talks about campaign WASHINGTON Comedian Stephen Colbert says that just because his name wont appear on Saturdays ballot in South Carolinas Republican primary doesnt mean he couldnt become president, or even pope, someday. In an oftentimes awkward, meandering interview on Sunday, Colbert told ABCs This Week that he established a presidential exploratory committee last week that consists of someone who is good with explosives, a mountain climber and a brain in a jar. He likened himself to a one-man Louis and Clark expedition looking for his Sacagawea Muhammad Ali gets birthday bash LOUISVILLE, Ky. At 70, Muhammad Ali is still the greatest to friends and admirers worldwide. The boxing champ basked in chants of Ali! Ali! as hundreds of supporters cheered him on Saturday night with a hearty rendering of Happy Birthday during his 70th birthday celebration in his Kentucky hometown. Never mind that Ali actually turns 70 years old on Tuesday: the private party in his hometown is the first of five planned in the next few months. Former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis said his boyhood idol is still the greatest. Stephen Colbert Charlie Sheen Spotlight on PEOPLE E NTERTAINMENT Page B4 MONDAY, JANUARY 16, 2012 Laid-back awards show C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Your Birthday: The very goals you considered to be special are likely to be relegated to the rear ranks in the year ahead, replaced by some new targets that youll deem both potentially profitable and more exciting. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Unless you are extremely mindful of your behavior at a social gathering, a sensitive friend might misread what you say or how you act and end up with hurt feelings. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Being impulsive or too restless could be the precursor of unsound reasoning. It could cause you to make some unwise changes in situations that are running smoothly. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) If you want to make a good impression on others, the last thing you should do is boast about or embellish your achievements. Nothing turns others off faster than a braggart. Aries (March 21-April 19) Dont count your chickens before theyre hatched, because financial trends might not be what you think they are. Believing you can get the funds isnt the same as having them in your hot little hands. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Usually youre bright enough not to succumb to flattery, but someone who is a master at compliments is likely to get you to lower your guard. Watch out when they try to take advantage. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Theres only a ghost of a chance that youll be able to achieve what you set out to do, mostly because youll be too busy handling things for others. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Just because someone is intriguing is no reason to get too deeply involved too quickly. He or she might have lots of charm but little substance. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Bank only on yourself and not on Lady Luck to help you achieve a complicated objective. Chances are, when you need her the most shell be cavorting elsewhere. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) To assuage your ego, you might pretend to be knowledgeable about something and suffer extreme embarrassment when asked to school others on that particular subject. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) It behooves you to avoid involvements with those who are careless and/or extravagant with their finances. You might have to cough up their share when they cant pay. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) In order to avoid a future misunderstanding, you should make sure all agreements are negotiated with extreme care. All participants must know the ground rules and be willing to follow them. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Its not a good idea to pretend to have taken care of something when you clearly havent, thinking you wont get caught. You can bet your bottom dollar you will.

There are 350 days left in the year. This is the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Todays Highlight: On Jan. 16, 1912, a day before reaching the South Pole, British explorer Robert Scott and his expedition were bitterly disappointed to find evidence in the form of a rock cairn and dog sled tracks showing that Roald Amundsen of Norway and his team had gotten there ahead of them. (Scott and his party perished during the return trip.) On this date: In 1547, Ivan IV of Russia (popularly known as Ivan the Terrible) was crowned czar. In 1920, Prohibition began in the United States as the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution took effect, one year to the day after its ratification. (It was later repealed by the 21st Amendment.) In 1944, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower took command of the Allied Expeditionary Forces in London. In 1991, the White House announced the start of Operation Desert Storm to drive Iraqi forces out of Kuwait. Ten years ago: Richard Reid was indicted in Boston on federal charges alleging hed tried to blow up a U.S.bound jetliner with explosives hidden in his shoes. (Reid later pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in prison.) Five years ago: Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., launched his successful bid for the White House. One year ago: Former Haitian strongman JeanClaude Baby Doc Duvalier, whod been living in exile in France, made a surprise return to Haiti as the country wrestled with a political crisis, cholera outbreak and stalled reconstruction from a devastating earthquake.

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, J ANUARY16, 2012 B5 P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. There is a disparity in a bridge library between the number of books about no-trump contracts (I have three) and trump contracts (more than 100). Why is there such a sizable difference? Because no-trump contracts are effectively all the same, but when there is a trump suit, the possibilities are numerous. This deal highlights the no-trump modus operandi. After West leads a low heart to Easts jack and Souths king, what should declarer do? In the bidding, note Norths raise to three notrump. With six winners, he should go for the ninetrick game, not think about anything else. In particular, North must not pass. With a long minor opposite a known fit, do not play in two no-trump. Either bid three no-trump or, if you think that has no chance, sign off in three of your long suit. South starts with seven top tricks: one heart (given the lead) and six clubs. He needs to establish two more, and those are readily available in diamonds. At trick two, declarer should lead the diamond king from his hand. And if he wins the trick, he should then lead the heart queen. He establishes the winners that he needs before cashing his top tricks. If you are curious, lay out the deal and try running the clubs immediately. Its effect on the South hand is not pretty. \(MTV\ 97 66 97 39Teen Mom 2 PGTeen Mom 2 PGJersey Shore Jersey Shore Caged (N) (In Stereo)Caged (In Stereo) \(NGC\109 65 109 44 53Inside the Green Berets L,V The Last Days of Osama bin Laden On Board Marine One PG Alaska State Troopers Alaska Wing Men Sky Fishing PG On Board Marine One PG \(NICK\ 28 36 28 35 25iCarly GiCarly GFamilyVictoriousSponge.Sponge.ssGeorgeGeorgeFriendsFriends \(OXY\ 44 123 The Bad Girls Club b The Bad Girls Club b The Bad Girls Club b Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too\224\224\224\001 Friday (1995) Ice Cube.

When I started, the kids coming into our center were from low-income minority and immigrant families. These were kids who would be home alone all afternoon if they didnt come to us. A few weeks ago, the demographic shifted. A large number of kids from stable, affluent families began arriving at the center. The parents of these children own property in an area that is quickly gentrifying. This nonprofit is meant for kids whose families really need it. I feel as if Im providing free babysitting and tutoring for kids whose parents could afford to pay for such services. What do you think? New Yorker Dear N.Y.: You should discuss this with the administrators of the program. Perhaps there could be an income-based tuition or in-kind contribution so that families that can afford it would help support the center. Either way, consider that these higherincome kids are getting valuable lessons in diversity, and some of them might also be home alone if the center didnt exist. As long as the original students are not losing their places in the program to higher-income children, you are performing a useful and appreciated service to the community. Dear Annie: There have been so many letters in your column about women not wanting sex. How about hearing the other side? I am a 57-year-old man, married for 25 years. Overall, its a good marriage, except I am not interested in sex with my wife. She has gained 100 pounds. I lost weight myself and had to fight her every step of the way. Seven years ago, I bought her an expensive exercise machine that she said she wanted, even though she never uses it. She gets offended when I encourage dieting or exercise. She has had some major health issues, and when she decided she only wanted to work part time, it forced me to work overtime. I stood by her through all this. I am now semi-retired, and money is an issue. A couple of months ago, she began pressuring me, asking whats wrong that I dont want sex. When I finally told her it is her weight, she didnt speak to me for two days. She thinks we need counseling, but I am concerned that she would hear only what she wanted to hear. I have had opportunities to cheat but asked myself each time whether the available woman was worth losing half my house and half my pension. So far, the answer has been no. But I dont know for how long Kansas Dear Kansas: We think there is also some resentment behind your reluctance to be intimate with your wife. We understand that you dont believe counseling would help, but please try nonetheless. It could bring insight, as well as suggestions to improve the situation, and that surely has to be better than what you have now. Dear Annie: You printed a letter from Noisy Dog Next Door, whose neighbors dog barked for hours on end. Our neighbors have four dogs that also bark nonstop. We mentioned it to them several times. They apologized, but nothing changed. We hesitated to call the neighborhood association, because everyone would know we were the ones complaining. We finally stumbled on a solution last summer. We set up a tower fan to help lower the cost of cooling our home and discovered it also drowns out the sound of the barking. We now run the fan 12 months a year Memphis, Tenn. Dear Memphis: Were not sure that would work as well in Minnesota as it does in Tennessee, but thanks for the idea.
