NEWS BRIEF OPINION: EDITORIAL, PAGE A8 ... school officials immediately shelved the quick fix rather than circling the wagons to defend an unworkable solution. A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterA deputy who shot and killed a small dog last November used excessive control and is being sanctioned, according to the results of an internal sheriffs office investigation. Citrus County Sheriffs Office Deputy Nick Hesse is getting a written reprimand and is being removed from the emergency response team. Hesse also has to undergo training with the sheriffs offices animal control officers and is being reassigned to the duty office of the Judicial Services Division because of the Nov. 19 shooting of a Jack Russell terrier named Princess, according to sheriffs officials. I never wanted him to lose his job or anything like that, but I am glad he is off the streets, said Nancy Blackwell, the Inverness resident whose dog was shot. The internal investigation people were very good and fair and did the appropriate thing, she added. And, in a sad twist of fate for the Blackwell family, their son John, 34 who Hesse was trying to locate to issue a warrant to when he fatally shot the dog was himself found dead by his mother in the home early Saturday. It just seems like one bad thing after another is happening to us, Blackwell said. She said her son, who was being detained in Kentucky when Hesse came for him, had returned to Citrus County on Friday and was going to turn himself in to authorities after the weekend. She said the cause of See DISCIPLINE / Page A2 Special to the Chronicle Nancy Blackwell shares a moment recently with her dog, Rascal. Her other dog, Princess, was shot and killed when Deputy Nick Hesse came onto Blackwells property last November. Excessive control earns officer reassignment and training Rivals assail Romney in SC GOP debate Associated PressMYRTLE BEACH, S.C. Mitt Romneys Republican rivals attacked his record as a private businessman and challenged him to release his federal income tax returns Monday night in the first of two debates before a pivotal weekend primary in South Carolina. Im proud of my record, the former Massachusetts governor responded, but he avoided an answer on making his tax returns public. The debate unfolded hours after former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman withdrew from the race and endorsed Romney. That withdrawal raised the stakes of the debate and one on Thursday night for Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Ron Paul and Rick Perry. Gingrich and Perry led the assault against Romneys record at Bain Capital, a venture capital firm that bought companies and sought to remake them into more competitive enterprises. There was a pattern in some companies ... of leaving them with enormous debt and then within a year or two or three having them go broke, Gingrich said. I think thats something he ought to answer. Perry referred to a steel mill in Georgetown, S.C. where, he said, Bain swept in, they picked that company over and a lot of people lost jobs there. Romney said that the steel industry was battered by unfair competition from China. As for other firms, he said, Four of the companies that we invested in ... ended up today having some 120,000 jobs. Some of the businesses we invested in were not successful and lost jobs, he said, but he offered no specifics. It was Perry who challenged Romney, a multimillionaire, to release his income tax returns. The Texas governor said he has already done so, adding he believes Gingrich will do likewise later in the week. Mitt, we need for you to release your income tax so the people of this country can see how you made your money. ... We cannot fire our nominee in September. We need to know now. Honoring the dream CATHY KAPULKA /Chronicle The sun beams through an oak tree Monday morning at Liberty Park in Inverness as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I Have a Dream Freedom Walk participants bow their heads for a prayer. C ATHYK APULKA Staff WriterIn honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a tribute was held Monday on each side of the county; a freedom walk in Inverness and a parade with a picnic in Crystal River. The New Church Without Walls held its inaugural Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I Have a Dream Freedom Walk in Inverness. Just after 8 a.m., the freedom walkers left the Citrus County Sheriffs Office parking lot and headed up Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, followed by two vans with residents from Avant at Inverness retirement and assisted living facility. Doug Alexander Sr., the churchs senior pastor, said he came up with the idea for the walk and organized it in only five days. For the last minute, I think it went pretty good, Alexander said. He said next year he would work on getting the word out earlier and getting some sponsors. He also plans to organize a 5K run to raise money for the homeless and for food pantries. Its something that Martin Luther King would want, freedom and equality for all men, he said. By the time the walkers made their way to Liberty Park more had joined them. About 50 people gathered under an oak tree to hear Bruce Bellamy recite Kings I Have a Dream speech completely from memory. For the first time, I think it turned out real well, Bellamy said of the inaugural walk. Next year its going to be incredible, were going to be walking, were going to be running and were going to have a good time. Inverness Mayor Bob Plaisted spoke and vowed C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterThe Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) will host the chair coordinating committee of all the West Central Florida Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) on March 9 at College of Central Florida. The college will handle food arrangements. Transitioning to an MPO will be discussed at Wednesdays meeting of the TPO. At last months meeting, Dr. Tim Pitts explained why the TPO should move quickly to become an MPO. He identified five options for discussion at future meetings: dissolve the TPO, remain the same, become a pseudoMPO funded by member governments, merge with a neighboring MPO or become an independent MPO. The revised annual work plan will be available. The Department of Transportation issued a tentative plan for roadwork in the county for resurfacing, landscaping and traffic signals. The board will take reports from its technical advisory committee. In other business, Citizen Advisory Committee representatives have been appointed. They are: Beverly Clemo, John S. Wade Jr., Ernest Paskey, Richard Maxfield and Ronald V. Steffle. The budget update will show that the only expense incurred for the past month was a total of $1,666.50 in attorney billing.

death had yet to be determined. Meanwhile, a letter dated Jan. 6 by Hesses division commander, Capt. Buddy Grant, and later affirmed by Commander Wayne Burns, saidHesse used poor judgment by making the decision to shoot and fatally wound a small breed dog while attempting to serve a warrant at the home of the dogs owner. The disciplinary letter also noted that because of the potential for harm to the residents of the home, Hesses actions were not prudent. According to Hesses statement to investigators, he arrived at the Blackwell residence shortly after 2 p.m. on Nov. 19 and noticed the houses screen door was closed, but the front door was open. He said he also noticed two Jack Russell terriers barking behind the screen door. He said the dogs pushed the door open and came straight toward him. Hesse said in his statement that he took several steps back from the barking dogs and the larger of the two dogs, later identified as Princess, was more of an immediate threat to him. At that point he shot and killed the dog. Hesse said he did not remove his gun until the dogs exited the house. He also told investigators the only other defensive tools besides the gun he carried on his belt at the time were a taser and his collapsible baton. He did not have pepper spray and would not have had enough time to remove his taser from the holster, he said. He told investigators he could have kicked the dog, but thought that would have been ineffective. Nancy Blackwell has since been given a girl puppy Jack Russell terrier by their daughter. The puppys name is Patches. The other dog (Rascal) became very lonely after Princess was killed. He is now with the puppy, she said. Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at 352-564-2926 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com. to work on the event next year. I thought it was fabulous, Plaisted said about the walk. Wonderful people here, and a beautiful day to commemorate Martin Luther King. I know this is going to get bigger and well make it big it rightly deserves it. The annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parade took place on the streets of Crystal River, ending with a ceremony and picnic at Copeland Park. The George Washington Carver Community Center sponsored the event. Jackie Hopkins, secretary at the center, said this years theme was, The Dream Still Lives. She started the picnic off with a prayer. Were celebrating the life and dreams of Martin Luther King Jr., she said as she looked around at the diverse nationalities of people sitting at the picnic tables. By us being together with a rainbow of colors here, this is his legacy. Pastor Bonita Fagin, with True Vision Ministries, was the guest speaker at the event. Citrus County and City of Crystal River dignitaries spoke and students from Lecanto Middle School performed. Andrew Smith, assistant pastor of the Unity Church of Christ Written in Heaven, and his son, Tyrone Smith, cooked hot dogs and hamburgers as others fried fish. The food was served with a multitude of desserts. Milton Bowe, a member of the Afro-American Club of Citrus County, enjoyed his meal among friends and other members of the club. Companys great. Foods good. Each year its a great experience, Bowe said. It really makes me think about from where we came, to where we are today. Hopkins said she wanted to thank all of the people that made the event possible. He (King) had the vision, us coming together as one body, Hopkins said. This parade, with the participation from the community, exemplifies his dream, and well stay on the continuous path of keeping the dream alive.

New Port Richey Woman charged with strangling mother A Pasco County woman is in jail on a battery charge after police said she tried to strangle her 71-year-old mother. Jail records show 31-yearold Kendall Gross was being held in the Land OLakes Jail Monday on $10,000 bond. She was charged with battery by strangulation and abuse of the elderly. It was not immediately known if she has an attorney. The Tampa Tribune reported Gross was in the bathroom of the apartment both women shared Friday afternoon when her mother told her several times she needed to use the bathroom. The arrest report said her mother opened the bathroom door and Gross grabbed her by the throat. A deputy later reported seeing red marks on the womans throat. The report also said that Gross told the deputy she grabbed her mother but never choked her.Longwood Historic tree destroyed by fire Investigators are ruling out arson after one of the worlds oldest cypress trees caught fire and collapsed in central Florida. Division of Forestry spokesman Cliff Frazier told the Orlando Sentinel the fire was not the work of an arsonist. The exact cause has not yet been determined. Seminole County Fire Rescue spokesman Steve Wright said the 118-foot-tall bald cypress tree named The Senator burned for several hours early Monday. The county parks department said ring samples showed the tree was roughly 3,500 years old. Eatonville Teen hurt in accidental shooting A 16-year-old is in critical condition in a central Florida hospital after police said he was accidentally shot by a 6year-old child. Police said the teen was at home playing video games Sunday night when he was injured. Detectives said the boy picked up a small handgun from the floor because he thought it was a toy. The Orlando Sentinel reported the teen was struck in the head and taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where he was on life support. From staff and wire reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 TUESDAY, JANUARY 17, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS Noelle Votino was none too happy when her daughter came home from school one day last month with head lice. So she suggested to the nurse at Inverness Middle School that the school should send a letter home to parents when they suspect children at the school are carrying head lice. The nurse said that wasnt school policy. I was really aggravated, Votino said. Im from New York and when theres an outbreak of lice, they sent home a note. That isnt possible, Cathy Reckenwald said, because head lice is just too common. Its a human thing. Head lice live on heads, said Reckenwald, student health specialist for the Citrus County School District. She said its also not a health issue. I know its frustrating. Head lice is a nuisance, she said. It doesnt spread disease, it doesnt cause disease. When we find it we send kids home so parents can go ahead and treat it. Reckenwald said parents of children with head lice receive letters from the school about prevention and treatment of lice. She said primary schools include those letters in packets of information given parents before school starts. Votino said the school should seek out and send home students who are spreading head lice by their contact with others. Reckenwald said that isnt practical or fair. We dont start pulling kids out like a little head-lice hunt, she said. We just cant do that. Were in the business of educating kids. Reckenwald advises parents to be on constant vigilance. I tell everybody, assume there is a child with head lice in your childs school, she said. Votino said she isnt satisfied with the districts response. Its very wrong. Its not fair, she said. My daughter was literally pulling out her hair.Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com. LICE PATROLTips on protecting your child from getting head lice: Wash with Head & Shoulders or a similar shampoo. Something about the dye or aroma keeps lice away. Blow dry hair after washing. Use mousse or gel to protect hair all day. Parents wanting more information should contact their childs school nurse. Schools lice policy a head-scratcher Mom wants more information from schools N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS Art teachers make art and we practice what we teach. Thats how Connie Phillips, art teacher at Lecanto High School, explained the concept behind the newest exhibit at the John Murray Davis gallery in the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum in Inverness. She and more than 20 other art teachers from around the county will be displaying their own art photography and jewelry, pottery, paintings, sculpture, etc. The creativity of Citrus Countys art teachers is clearly evident in the works on view in this exhibition, said Kathy Turner Thompson, Citrus County historical resources officer. From abstraction to realism and three-dimensional assemblages, every possible approach is explored in the vibrant works on view. D.J. Collins, art teacher at Floral City Elementary School, was one of the teachers setting up her clay, crayon and India ink creations. Ive been working with clay for 15 years, but this project is brand new, she said. Im teaching the students the difference between shape and form, so they pick a shape and draw it on paper first. The clay is coiled into rounds and pressed into the shape, such as a heart or cross. After its fired, the piece is colored with crayons then washed with India ink and polished so it shines. Collins said she also wanted to incorporate words and made square block beads with letters on each side. The beads can turn and spell different words: Live, Hope, Love. Forest Ridge Elementary School art teacher Jinnie Zuniga also works with clay with her students, but works with glass on her own. I like glass because its always changing, she said. It never comes out the way you think it will, and sometimes a mistake is the best thing that could happen. Its always a surprise. Exhibit hours are from 10 a.m. to 4p.m. Monday through Friday, with a special evening exhibition from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26. The exhibit is free; however, donations are welcome and appreciated. Some of the art work is for sale as well. Call 352-341-6436. WHAT: Art Teachers Make Art exhibit.

Bond $500. 75 35 Associated PressTAMPA Before he published community newspapers, Bill Sharpe sold RVs. He was neither newspaper crusader nor do-gooder. He never liked giving money to panhandlers. He knew as much about the homeless as the next guy. Two months of dawn interactions with people layered in sweatshirts and wool caps in a gravel parking lot on North Tampa Street have caused some kind of realignment. They all have stories. He has heard those stories since starting Tampa Epoch, a monthly homeless newspaper, after the city imposed its panhandling ban. Every morning, as he resupplies his vendors, he hears more. Each has left an impression that, welcome or not, jolts his consciousness. Elizabeth Ann Kain, 30, had a story. She had just gotten out of the hospital. She showed up at the parking lot at 7 a.m., asking to sell Epochs He helped her cut off the hospital wristband. He gave her a bright blueEpoch T-shirt, an ID, a cloth bag and 25 free starter papers. The average vendor sells about 30 copies a day. Each goes for a buck. Sharpes cut is 25 cents. The vendor keeps 75 cents. The daily take is enough to pay for a $7 bed at the Salvation Army, three squares at McDonalds and bus fare. It kept Elizabeth Kain going until Dec. 15, when her name appeared in a small item in theTimes : Kain, the news item said, was found naked and stabbed to death in a check-cashing store parking lot. Jeremy Reinert, 28, a man she met at a nearby church, was charged with her murder. Kain wasEpochs first death, but also was the 61st homeless death in Hillsborough County in 2011. Again, Sharpes consciousness shifted. Sharpe, 59, shows up in the parking lot in a sports jacket. He does not try to blend. He looks like exactly what he is publisher of the civically spirited, pro-small business South Tampa Community News. In October, the City Council banned panhandling at intersections during the week but allowed street sales of newspapers. In the loophole, he saw as much opportunity as altruism. With Epoch he figured he could turn a profit while creating entrepreneurs. He hates the label bleedingheart liberal. Im creating independent businessmen, he said. Thats as Republican as it gets. Sharpe posted job requirements: Independent, self-reliant worker with strong desire to create a better quality of life. Will work in the cold, heat, wind, among exhaust fumes (without complaining). . Able to withstand face-to-face insults (and even injury in some cases) from complete strangers. In the parking lot last week, Linda Austin presented herself as an Epoch superstar. She works a spot near Busch Gardens. She described her sales pitches: Im too blessed to be stressed, is one. Another is, Be cheerful, its contagious. She made $60 the other day. That included a $5 tip she got when she spotted a car with Texas plates and yelled, Hook em, Horns! Her natural exuberance sometimes gets her into predicaments. I stopped on the Skyway to take a picture of a cruise ship going underneath, she said. People going by yelled, Dont jump! If I had 60 vendors like her, Sharpe said, Id be profitable. He has signed up about 270 vendors and of those, about two dozen are superstars. Some just cant do it, he said. On a recent morning, bearded, shivering Don Wilson told Sharpe he had stood in Hyde Park for eight hours and sold one paper. The day before he had stood for seven hours and sold none. Just give me a few more copies, he said. He hadnt eaten for a day. He was asked: But why bother? Its all I got. More keep showing up. There are the veterans, some with Purple Hearts. Theres the lady who protests that shes not really homeless, just living in her foreclosed home. Epoch helped her pay her light bill. I dont belong here, she said, hurrying away with her bundle. Cold and bedraggled at 7 a.m., she and the others looked anything but dangerous. But they often do frighten. His consciousness realigned, Sharpe said he thinks he now knows why. They could be us, he said, Were flat scared of that. Publisher sees reality of homeless State BRIEFS Dolphin released by bystanders washes up dead days later SANTA ROSA BEACH A dolphin that marine officials said beached itself in northwest Florida and was later released by bystanders washed up dead on shore days later. The Northwest Florida Daily News reported Monday the spotted dolphin beached itself Jan. 7 in Santa Rosa Beach. Two men spotted the dolphin floating upside down in shallow waters and guided it back out into the Gulf of Mexico. Marine officials said the dolphin washed up in a state of advanced decomposition on Friday. They say dolphins end up on a beach when they are seriously ill or injured and their chances of survival are slim unless given medical care. Marine officials said there are between 15 and 20 dolphin strandings a year in northwest Florida. Biologists say panther births offset number of deathsTALLAHASSEE State wildlife officials said the number of Florida panthers born last year appears to offset the number of documented panther deaths. According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, 32 of the endangered cats were born to 11 female panthers last year. Biologists also documented 24 panther deaths in 2011. Nine deaths were caused by collisions with vehicles. Officials said just 100 to 160 Florida panthers survive in the state. The population has been increasing since the 1970s, when fewer than 30 were found. Three panther deaths have been recorded so far in 2012. From wire reports

Associated PressANCHORAGE, Alaska Crews have laid two parallel hoses along a stretch of Bering Sea ice and were hoping Monday to soon begin transferring 1.3 million gallons of fuel from a Russian fuel tanker to the iced-in western Alaska city of Nome. The offloading could begin before sundown, said Stacey Smith of Vitus Marine, the fuel supplier that arranged to have the Russian tanker Renda and its crew deliver the gasoline and diesel fuel. Crews also were safety-testing the hose with pressurized air. Crews on Monday hooked the hoses to a pipeline that begins on a rock causeway 550 yards from the tanker, which is moored about half a mile offshore, said Jason Evans, board chairman of the Sitnasuak Native Corp. Sitnasuak owns the local fuel company, Bonanza Fuel, and has been working closely with Vitus Marine. The pipeline leads to storage tanks in town. The start is imminent, Evans said of the fuel transfer. State officials said the transfer must start during daylight, but can continue in darkness. Nome has just five hours of daylight this time of year. The transfer could be finished within 36 hours if everything goes smoothly, but it could take as long as five days. The Renda got into position Saturday night after a Coast Guard icebreaker cleared a path for it through hundreds of miles of a slow journey stalled by thick ice and strong ocean currents. Before the hoses could be laid out, the ice disturbed by the tankers journey had to freeze again so workers could create some sort of roadway. Smith said the effort is a third of the way into completion with the arrival of the Renda to Nome. Pumping the fuel from the tanker will be the second part. The third part will be the exiting through ice by the two ships. Its just been an absolutely grand collaboration by all parties involved, she said of the work accomplished so far. The city of 3,500 didnt get its last pre-winter barge fuel delivery because of a massive November storm. Without the Rendas delivery, Nome would run out of fuel by March or April, long before the next barge delivery is possible after one of the most severe Alaska winters in decades. The 370-foot 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. It arrived late last week off Nome on Alaskas west coast more than 500 miles from Anchorage. In total, the tanker traveled an estimated 5,000 miles, said Rear Adm. Thomas Ostebo, commander of District Seventeen with the Coast Guard. Personnel will walk the entire length of hosing every 30 minutes to check for leaks, Evans said. Each segment of hose has its own spill containment area, and extra absorbent boom will be on hand in case of a spill. The Coast Guard is monitoring the effort, working with state, federal, local and tribal representatives, said Chief Petty Officer Kip Wadlow. The fuel participants had to submit a plan to state environmental regulators on how they intended to get the fuel off the Renda, he said.

Simpson is in danger of losing his house to foreclosure. Miami-Dade Circuit Court records show that JPMorgan Chase filed for foreclosure in September on the four-bedroom, four-bath house south of downtown Miami. Simpsons attorney has since filed a motion to dismiss the case, but there has been no further action since November. Simpson bought the 4,233square-foot house in 2000 for $575,000, property records show. Its current assessed value is $478,401, with property taxes of about $9,000. The 2011 taxes were paid in December. The 64-year-old former football star and actor is serving a nine-to-33-year prison sentence stemming from a 2007 armed confrontation with sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas casino hotel room. Simpson was convicted of kidnapping, armed robbery and other charges. He is appealing the conviction. Simpson was acquitted in 1995 in the Los Angeles slayings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman. A civil jury in California later ordered Simpson to pay $33.5 million for Goldmans wrongful death. The attorney for Goldmans father, Fred Goldman, said Monday the bankruptcy case played directly into the Simpson foreclosure. No surprise at all, said David J. Cook, the Goldman attorney in San Francisco who has spent years trying to collect the judgment. Simpson received $750,000 in 2007 for a book ghostwritten under his name titled If I Did It, Cook said. A Florida bankruptcy judge eventually awarded rights to the book to Goldman, who released it. Cook said it sold some 150,000 copies. About $350,000 of Simpsons money went to pay down a line of credit he had tied to his Miami-area home. The bankruptcy trustee, however, filed a socalled clawback lawsuit against the bank that sought return of the money as illgotten gains. Cook said when the bank paid the money, Simpsons mortgage amount was raised to offset the cost. It was just a matter of time before he would lose the house, Cook said. Even in prison, Simpson has income from his NFL pension and another retirement account that is shielded under federal law from creditors. Residual payments from Simpsons movies, such as the Naked Gun series and The Towering Inferno, go to the Goldmans. It wasnt immediately clear Monday if anyone is still living in the house. Simpsons attorney in Nevada did not immediately return a telephone call and email seeking comment. O.J. Simpson Florida home in foreclosure.

Senate race in shadow of presidential primary Associated PressLAKE BUENA VISTA Republicans keep making the point that their top two goals this year are defeating President Barack Obama and defeating Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson. But until Florida goes to the polls Jan. 31 for the presidential primary, the Senate race has become an afterthought. Former Sen. George LeMieux and former state Rep. Adam Hasner acknowledged this weekend that its harder to break through to voters while theyre focused on picking a presidential nominee. Still, they were working the crowd at the Republican Party of Floridas annual meeting, hoping to woo party activists and build support for when attention turns to their August primary. The focus is on the presidential until the party decides who our Republican nominee will be, but thats going to be soon. Florida will decide the race. After that, starting in February, I think all eyes will turn to the Senate race, said LeMieux.

O PINION Page A8 TUESDAY, JANUARY 17, 2012 Nukes here to stay Re: Its time for disarmament ( Chronicle Dec. 26) In addition to Leonard Pitts being on vacation, evidently Mr. Koehlers brain has left for purgatory. Either that or it is under the influence of hallucinogens served up by the company cafeteria. First off, neither he nor any statesman, physicist, liberal or conservative can un-ring the bell: The gun has been invented and cant be un-invented any more than nuclear weapons can be un-invented. Secondly, the view expressed of Iran and its leaders is biased, blind and wholly devoid of reality. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has openly expressed the belief that the Holocaust never happened. In addition, he has expressed the desire to wipe Israel off the map. Iran and its leaders have also demonstrated aggression toward its neighbors and have openly supported terrorist regimes and organizations. How convenient that you left these key facts out of your discussion. As for the statement virtually all the GOP commander-in-chief wannabes playing tough as nails Wrong again. I suggest reading Neville Chamberlain I mean, Ron Pauls position on this subject. In the liberal Kumbaya world, there is no right, no wrong, no good, no evil. For the rest of us, those who live in reality, we see things a little differently. Mr. Koehler and the isolationist know-nothings would prefer to leave Israel and the world defenseless against a proven murderous regime with nuclear capability. When Iran attains nuclear weapons, terrorists will have nuclear weapons. Do you think those who attacked us on Sept. 11 will want to enter into a disarmament treaty? Whats even more astonishing is that Mr. Koehler understands the reasoning Iran has to want to attain nuclear weapons! One can therefore conclude that you would be highly critical of Israel for its concerns about being attacked by Iran using nuclear weapons! Hypocrisy, Mr. Koehler?! Climb down from your ivory tower, try sobriety for a while and come see what it is like to live in the real world. Wes Alexander Beverly Hills Romney right choice Among other reasons, the Roberts in Other Voices (Jan.7) decry Mitt Romney for being a boring, stiff candidate lacking in charisma. This criticism is difficult to understand given that weve had more than three years of one who wooed the public with fiery rhetoric, charm and high hopes and where has it gotten us? A leader must stand the test presented by the times. President Obamas big-government approach is the antithesis of what is demanded today. Perhaps in another era he would have excelled; today, he is failing miserably! Romney, though imperfect, offers a small-government orientation appropriate for our times. He is a problem-solver, and Lord knows we have plenty of those. This time around lets move beyond appearance to substance and elect one whose philosophy of government and experience in the world of business and politics shows enormous potential to meet the challenges of our time, many of which must soon be solved or our standard of living will decline even further.Earle W. Pratt Lecanto E ven fair-minded liberals, of which there must be a few, should acknowledge that the Saturday-Sunday blitz of the Republican presidential candidates by ABC and NBC correspondents looked like a play designed by the left wing of the Democratic Party. Clearly the questions by ABCs George Stephanopoulos and Diane Sawyer about contraception and same-sex marriage were asked to trap the GOP candidates into delivering sound bites that the Obama re-election campaign could use against the eventual nominee and the party at large. These were the types of accusatory questions that would never be asked of a Democratic president. One would not expect to hear, for example, a question like this to President Obama: Mr. President, millions of babies have been legally aborted in this country since 1973; how can you so callously dismiss unborn children, many of whom would now be productive, taxpaying citizens, by taking a pro-choice stance on abortion? This is how it works: if you are a journalist who clearly favors the re-election of President Obama, you ask questions of Republicans in an effort to make them look foolish, forcing them to address subjects other than the economy and threats to national security. When you question Democrats, you ask questions people care most about and usually allow the answer, however inaccurate, to go unchallenged. During last Sundays NBC News/Facebook debate on Meet the Press, the conservative Media Research Center (mrc.org) found that, Out of the 41 questions directed to the six Republican presidential candidates... 25 of them were from the left, 13 questions were neutral, mainly about the campaign horse race and electability, and only three questions pressed the candidates from the right. On Minutes last month, correspondent Steve Kroft delivered this fat softball to President Obama: Since the midterm elections, you made an effort at bipartisanship. It hasnt worked out that way. ... You gave up a lot. You said you wanted a balanced approach. You didnt get it. You cut a trillion dollars and set up the framework to cut another trillion plus, and the Republicans gave up nothing. I mean, there are people in your own party who think that you were outmaneuvered, that you were stared down by John Boehner and Grover Norquist and capitulated. ... It seems to be all the compromising is being done by you... And so it goes in every modern election cycle. To the mainstream media, Republicans are pigheaded and unwilling to compromise with a Democratic president (or a Democratic Congress). Thats because in medialand, only Democrats want what is best for real Americans. Get it? MSNBC has apparently suspended conservative Pat Buchanan because that network doesnt like his biases, but Democratic biases are just fine with management. None of this will change as long as liberals continue to dominate major media. Instead of complaining, which changes nothing, Republicans should run the equivalent of a Tebow option play. They should refuse to participate in any more dog-and-pony shows designed to trip them up. Instead, they should create their own panels with an ideological mix of interrogators. Invite a couple of wild card conservative partisans like Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity to add to the journalistic mix. If the Miss America contest could invite Limbaugh as a judge in 2010, why cant the Republican presidential candidates invite him, or Hannity, to judge and question them? The ratings would be huge and the public would get better answers to more substantive questions than the gotcha questions they must now endure. Perhaps its too late for this election cycle, but maybe not. All it would take is one such event and the public will instantly see what its been missing. After that there would likely be no turning back. Direct all mail for Cal Thomas to: Tribune Media Services, 2225 Kenmore Ave., Suite 114, Buffalo, NY 14207.

HR directorSandra Frederick ............................ managing editor Curt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member BACK TO DRAWING BOARD Traffic experiment backfires T he traffic flow for parents dropping off and picking up Inverness Middle School students has been a long-standing safety concern for school officials. To address the potential risk created by the congested mix of vehicular traffic and students walking to school, a consultant suggested that access to the school from Ella Avenue be closed and parking improvements be made at an estimated cost of $30,000. Not wanting to use scarce dollars for pavement, school officials decided to close Ella Avenue during the time that parents drop off and pick up their charges as the most costeffective quick fix. Although parents were apprised of the traffic flow change by newsletters, automated phone calls and the posting of the change on the schools website, both parents and school officials were unprepared for the traffic jam that occurred along Middle School Road and U.S. 41 on the first day of school following the holiday break. To lessen the unexpected traffic backups that occurred, school officials further tweaked the traffic pattern at Middle School Drive, which only caused traffic to back up more. This prompted some frustrated parents to make a bad situation worse by stopping their cars to let children out before reaching the school. While the failed experiment is illustrative of no good deed goes unpunished, school officials, to their credit, attempted to resolve a longstanding safety concern without impacting classroom dollars. Further, school officials immediately shelved the quick fix rather than circling the wagons to defend an unworkable solution. With the traffic pattern change a bust, the school board has decided to form a committee and seek input from affected parents to explore alternatives. Nevertheless, until much-needed improvements are made to the increasingly traveled U.S. 41, there will be no easy solution to Inverness Middle Schools longstanding safety concern over the mingling of vehicles and students walking to school along Ella Avenue.

I think that is an awful, awful thing to do. Leave the school buses alone. If we need money, then one of those legislators should actually quit and well save his salary and then well have money.

S OUND OFF CALL 563-0579 Cal Thomas OTHER VOICES Hot Corner: DOG SHOOTING Small dogs a danger I worked as a state probation officer until my retirement in July of 2011. For the record, the only dogs to ever attack and bite me were small dogs. And believe me, their bites can be nasty. No pet owner wants to believe that sweetlooking little Princess or Tippy would be vicious or bite anyone. All law enforcement officers should be allowed to protect themselves, especially if the pet owners dont contain their animals. I have been bitten by a rabid dog. For the publics information, small dogs can carry rabies also and the treatment is not fun.Worrisome encounterIf a law enforcement officer is afraid of one of the smallest breeds of dog at 10 or 15 pounds max, enough to shoot it from 12 feet away, what is that officer going to do when approached by what he or she perceives to be a threatening 50or 60-pound child? Its terrible. Terribly worrisome.Say something This is in response to the shooting of that womans tiny dog by the deputy, one of Sheriff Dawsys deputies. I think its shameful that Sheriff Dawsy hasnt even made any kind of public statement in regards to the incident. I think it should merit some attention, especially the amount of people who complained about it in the newspaper and the fact that the Chronicle paper itself wrote an article saying that Dawsys deputy was wrong in shooting the little dog. So I think if Sheriff Dawsy was smart, he would make a statement or a change in his policies in regards to shooting dogs. C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE

Associated PressLAGOS, Nigeria Labor unions ended a crippling nationwide strike Monday in Nigeria after the countrys president partially restored subsidies that keep gasoline prices low, though it took soldiers deployed in the streets to stop demonstrations in Africas most populous nation. Union leaders claimed a victory for labor, saying this would allow its leaders to guide the countrys policy on fuel subsidies in the future. But the newly agreed price of about $2.27 a gallon is still more expensive than the previous price of $1.70 per gallon, putting additional economic strain on those living in a nation where most earn less than $2 a day and few see the rewards of being a major oil exporter. And to force the compromise and stop popular protests, President Goodluck Jonathan ordered soldiers to take over security in the countrys major cities, something unseen since the nation abandoned military rule for an uneasy democracy in 1999. The move raises new questions about freedom of speech in a nation where government power still appears absolute. This is a clear case of intolerance and shutting of the democratic space against the people of Nigeria which must be condemned by all democracy-loving people around the world, read a statement from the Save Nigeria Group, which has organized massive demonstrations in Lagos. The six-day strike began after fuel prices more than doubled to at least $3.50 per gallon following a Jan. 1 decision by Jonathans administration to end the government-sponsored subsidies. Low gasoline prices, something Nigeria has been accustomed to since 1973, remain one of the only benefits the average Nigerian sees from the nation producing 2.4 million barrels of crude oil a day. Gasoline also powers the small generators that provide shops and homes electricity in a nation with a failed national power grid. Many protesters also joined the growing demonstrations to speak out against a culture of government corruption in a nation where lawmakers earn pay packages of $1 million a year and states have budgets larger than neighboring countries. Under the hash-tagged slogan of Occupy Nigeria, many used social media to criticize the nations poor roads and failing hospitals amid the excesses of the countrys elite. The government tried to persuade the nation to its side, promising the estimated $8 billion saved a year by ending the subsidies would go toward needed public work projects. That failed to win popular support as tens of thousands joined in protests across the country. In the last two days, government authorities began warning that provocateurs wanted to exploit the rallies to cause unrest in a nation with a long history of coups. It has become clear to government and all wellmeaning Nigerians that other interests beyond the implementation of the deregulation policy have hijacked the protest. ... These same interests seek to promote discord, anarchy and insecurity to the detriment of public peace, President Jonathan said in a speech aired Monday morning on the state-run Nigerian Television Authority. Jonathan gave no further explanation to his remarks. Opposition politicians did sometimes lead demonstrations, but they were not connected to the violence that killed at least 10 people and wounded more than 600 others during strikes. The Nigeria Labor Congress and the Trade Union Congress told journalists on Monday they chose to abandon the strike in order to save lives and in the interest of national survival. They previously met with Jonathan late Sunday night, who made the same claims about security concerns. We are sure that no government or institution will take Nigerians for granted again, said Abdulwaheed Omar, the president of the Nigeria Labor Congress. Though an oil workers association threatened to cut Nigerias crude oil production, they held off. Such a shutdown could have shaken oil futures, as Nigeria is the fifth-largest crude supplier to the U.S. Meanwhile, an offshore rig being run for a Chevron Corp. subsidiary near Nigerias oil-rich southern delta caught fire and officials tried to account for all the workers there, the oil company said. Chevron spokesman Scott Walker said the fire started early Monday morning. Government officials blamed the fire on an industrial accident.

Protesters who gathered in freezing temperatures for a fifth day of demonstrations chanted Freedom! and held banners saying Hunger and poverty have gripped Romania!

There were smaller protests in another dozen Romanians cities, but it was not clear how many people had gathered around the country. On Sunday, police clashed with a small contingent of around 1,000 protesters in the capital.

From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A10 TUESDAY, JANUARY 17, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressROME Italys cruise liner tragedy turned into an environmental crisis Monday, as rough seas battering the stricken mega-ship raised fears that fuel might leak into pristine waters off Tuscany that are part of a protected sanctuary for dolphins, porpoises and whales. The ships Italian operator accused the jailed captain of causing the wreck that left at least six dead and 29 missing, saying he made an unapproved, unauthorized maneuver to divert the vessel from its programmed course. Earlier, authorities had said 16 people were missing. But an Italian Coast Guard official, Marco Brusco, said late Monday that 25 passengers and four crew members were unaccounted for three days after the Costa Concordia struck a reef and capsized off the coast of the tiny island of Giglio.He didnt explain the jump, but indicated 10 of the missing are Germans. Two Americans are also among the missing. Brusco said there was still a glimmer of hope there could be survivors on parts of the vast cruise liner that have yet to be searched. The last survivor, a crewman who had broken his leg, was rescued on Sunday. Waters that had remained calm for the first days of the rescue turned choppy Monday, shifting the wreckage and raising fears that any further movement could cause some of the 500,000 gallons of fuel on board to leak into the waters off Giglio, which are popular with scuba divers and form part of the protected Tuscan archipelago. Rescue operations were suspended for several hours because of the rough seas. Italys environmental minister raised the alarm about a potential environmental catastrophe. At the moment there havent been any fuel leaks, but we have to intervene quickly, the minister, Corrado Clini, told RAI state radio. Even before the accident there had been mounting calls from environmentalists to restrict passage of large ships in the area. The ships operator, Costa Crociere SpA, has enlisted one of the worlds leading salvagers, Smit of Rotterdam, Netherlands, to handle the removal of the 1,000-foot cruise liner and extract the fuel safely. Smit has a long track record of dealing with wrecks and leaks, including refloating grounded bulk carriers and securing drilling platforms in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Report: 29 missing in cruise disaster Worries now turn to possible fuel leak Associated PressMADRID French President Nicolas Sarkozy bluntly declared Monday that a harsh downgrade by Standard & Poors of Frances formerly top-rung debt rating changes nothing for the eurozones No. 2 economy. Sarkozy, in a testy exchange with a journalist at a Madrid news conference, suggested that a solid investor demand for a French debt auction Monday and a reaffirmation from rival ratings agency Moodys of Frances triple-A sovereign debt had offset S&Ps muchpublicized downgrade. We have to react to this with calm, by taking a step back, he told reporters during a visit with Spains new prime minister, Mariano Rajoy. At the core, my conviction is that it changes nothing. The S&P downgrade Friday which Sarkozys own finance minister called bad news came just 100 days before the president faces what is expected to be a tough re-election campaign. The news conference began combatively when Sarkozy refused to answer a question about whether Frances downgrade would affect its ability to lead Europe out of the crisis and if the move prompted the postponement of a crisis summit for him and the leaders of Germany and Italy next week. Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have taken the lead in proposing solutions to the crisis and major decisions are often hashed out at their meetings ahead of European summits. You dont have the latest information, Sarkozy retorted to a reporter who asked about the downgrade and the summit. Sarkozy refused to answer even after the reporter rephrased his question twice. The French leader later confirmed that the three-way summit would take place in February and downplayed the S&P downgrade, but never gave a clear answer as to why the summit was rescheduled. Sarkozy did manage to win muchneeded political support from Rajoy notably for his pet project for a financial transaction tax. France, which has long enjoyed relatively low borrowing costs and had S&Ps top-tier AAA rating uninterrupted since the mid-1970s, on Friday was the largest of nine eurozone members hit by S&P downgrades dropping one notch to AA+. The agency also kept a negative outlook on French state debt. Analysts said Sarkozys denial that the downgrade meant much was wishful thinking. But in a vindication of sorts for Sarkozy, France sold 8.6 billion euros in short-term debt on Monday. The yields or the interest rates charged by investors on the debt fell, a sign investors still see the country as a good bet. What downgrade? Sarkozy not rattled by S&Ps blow to French credit rating Associated Press Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, left, shakes hands with French President Nicolas Sarkozy Monday before a meeting at the Moncloa Palace in Madrid. Associated PressSANAA, Yemen A band of al-Qaida militants took full control on Monday of a town 100 miles south of the Yemeni capital Sanaa, overrunning army positions, storming the local prison and freeing at least 150 inmates. The capture of the town of Radda expanded already significant territorial conquests by the militants, who have taken advantage of the weak central government and political turmoil roiling the nation for the past year during an anti-regime uprising inspired by Arab Spring revolts. Authoritarian President Ali Abdullah Saleh recently agreed to step down after months of resisting the protests against his 33-year rule. But he remains a powerful force within the country and a spark for ongoing unrest. Al-Qaida in Yemen had previously taken control of a string of towns in the mostly lawless south. But its capture of Radda is particularly important because it gives the militants a territorial foothold closer than ever before to the capital, where many sleeper cells of the terror network are thought to be located. Fragmented Yemen is the poorest nation in the Arab world. There have long been fears that the chaos there, if unchecked, could lead to the breakup of the country along tribal or regional lines, with the militants in control of inaccessible and heavily fortified pockets deep in the countrys mountainous interior. Such a scenario could turn Yemen into something akin to Taliban-ruled Afghanistan, a sanctuary for militants from the world over where they could plot high-profile terror attacks against the United States and its allies. Yemens active al-Qaida branch has already been linked to terror attacks on U.S. soil and on neighboring Saudi Arabia. It is believed to be one of the international terror organizations most dangerous franchises. According to security officials, a band of about 200 militants pushed into Radda on Monday from several points they had captured over the weekend, including an ancient castle that overlooks the town, a school and a mosque. They stormed the local jail and freed 150-200 inmates, including an unspecified number of militants loyal to al-Qaida. The fighters later threw up a security ring around the town, preventing residents from leaving or entering, and killed two soldiers and wounded a third in clashes with troops.

SPORTS BRIEFS Broncos offensive coordinator McCoy interviews in MiamiMIAMI Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy has joined the list of candidates for the Miami Dolphins head coaching job. McCoy completed an interview Monday, the Dolphins said. Hes the first candidate to meet with the Dolphins since they were turned down Friday by former Titans coach Jeff Fisher, who chose instead to become coach of the St. Louis Rams. Under McCoy this season, Denvers offense ranked only 23rd in yards and 26th in points. But McCoy won praise for adapting the offense at midseason when second-year pro Tim Tebow became the starting quarterback, and the Broncos made an improbable run to the second round of the playoffs before losing Saturday at New England. The Oakland Raiders have also received permission from Denver to interview McCoy. The former quarterback was on the Carolina Panthers staff from 2000 to 2008, then joined the Broncos in 2009. The interview was the first in nearly a week for the Dolphins, who waited several days for a decision by Fisher. Other candidates interviewed by Miami have included Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin, Chicago Bears special teams coordinator Dave Toub, and Todd Bowles, who was the Dolphins interim coach for their final three games this season. After being rejected by Fisher, Miami owner Stephen Ross said the team planned to interview several more candidates. The Dolphins fired Tony Sparano last month with three games to go in his fourth season as coach, and they finished 6-10 to miss the playoffs for the ninth time in 10 years. Rams set to introduce Jeff Fisher as new coach TuesdayST. LOUIS The St. Louis Rams have scheduled a news conference to introduce Jeff Fisher as their new coach, having finalized contract details. The announcement for 2 p.m. Tuesday came amid reports Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has agreed to join Fishers staff in the same role. The Rams on Friday agreed to a deal with Fisher, who sat out last season after 17 with the Titans. Fisher was the top coaching candidate this offseason and picked St. Louis, 2-14 last year and with only 15 wins the last five years, over Miami. Fisher and WIllliams, both 53, were together in Tennessee from 1994-2000. Rangers struggling to find support for slugger Hamilton ARLINGTON, Texas The Texas Rangers are returning to square one in their search for an accountability partner for slugger Josh Hamilton. The Rangers had announced earlier this month that they were hiring Hamiltons father-inlaw, Michael Dean Chadwick, as a special staff assistant to travel with the slugging outfielder. Chadwick was to succeed Johnny Narron as Hamiltons support after Narron left to become Milwaukees hitting coach. On Monday, however, the Rangers disclosed that Chadwick had decided against accepting the position due to family considerations. According to a team statement, Hamilton and the Rangers have started to consider other options but nothing has been determined as of yet. From wire reports A RNIE S TAPLETON Associated PressENGLEWOOD, Colo. The debate over Tim Tebows worthiness as an NFL quarterback will undeniably continue in the offseason. Whats not in doubt is his status as the Denver Broncos starter. The team sought to curb the circus thats sure to surround Tebow over the next several months by declaring him the incumbent at a season-ending news conference Monday. Well, I think Tims earned the right to be the starting quarterback going into training camp next year, Broncos boss John Elway declared at the beginning of a 40minute news conference in which 24 of the 47 questions were about Tebow. I think he made some good strides this year, Elway said. He obviously played very well against Pittsburgh and played very well in a lot of football games. And exceedingly poorly in plenty of others. Thats why Elway, a Hall of Famer who rejoined the team a year ago as chief of football operations, has pledged to personally work with Tebow this offseason to polish his passing game and help him become a better quarterback. He has a willing pupil in Tebow, who said his offseason goal was to work pretty hard and try to get a lot better. Elway said he wants to help Tim in every way I can, to be able to improve through what I learned. And that was this: Mobility is great, but to compete for a championship, you have to become a pocket passer. Thats what Elway learned late in his career, which he capped with back-to-back Super Bowl titles after losing the big game three times. Hopefully, I can teach him what I learned over my 16-year career, Elway said, to be able to tell him what I learned in Year 10, hopefully get that to him in year 3 or 4. The Broncos, like everyone else, are looking for that franchise quarterback and were so hopeful that Tims that guy. Obviously, we have some work to do and he knows that, too. Tebow took over a 1-4 team in October and guided the Broncos to their first playoff berth since 2005.

It also set up another big one for Ryan Anderson. Anderson scored a careerhigh 30 points, extending his NBA lead with seven 3-pointers, and the Orlando Magic beat the New York Knicks 10293 on Monday to complete a perfect four-game road trip. Taking advantage of extra space as the Knicks focused on Howard, Anderson went 7 of 13 behind the arc and is now 40 of 93 for the season. He missed all three 3-point attempts in the first quarter, but finished with the NBA single-game high this season despite having a cold. Early in the game Ryan was missing, but he stuck with it and he played big for us tonight, Howard said. JJ Redick added 21 points for the Magic, who won three games on the West Coast before finishing in New York and will play at home the next two New York contains Howard, but cant stop Anderson See MAGIC / Page B2 Associated PressNEW YORK This U.S. basketball team might be even better than the last two that won gold medals. This will be the most talented of the three teams that Ive had the opportunity to coach, coach Mike Krzyzewski said Monday during a conference call. The Americans announced the 20 players who will be candidates for the London Games, adding Blake Griffin of the Clippers and LaMarcus Aldridge of Portland to the 18 holdovers from either the 2008 Olympics or 2010 world championship who have said they wish to be considered again.

B2 T UESDAY, J ANUARY17, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S PORTS regular season and 40.4 percent in the playoffs while compiling an 8-5 overall record that included five second-half comebacks. His 80-yard TD toss on the first play of overtime beat Pittsburgh in the wild-card round and capped his best performance as a pro. Then, he had the worst completion percentage 34 in a playoff game since 1998 in a 35-point loss at New England on Saturday night in a game that showed how far both he and the Broncos have yet to go. Sticking with Tebow as the starter doesnt mean the Broncos wont be adding a quarterback or two in the offseason either through the draft or free agency. Well, right now as we look at it, weve got two quarterbacks under contract, Elway said, noting that practice squad QB Adam Weber signed a futures contract. So, weve obviously got to be in the market to find some more quarterbacks. Coach John Fox didnt rule out the return of Brady Quinn, who hasnt taken a single snap in his two seasons in Denver. Selling a veteran quarterback on Denver might be difficult. Now, I think that anybody that comes in, a free agent, no matter what position, is going to believe theyre going to come in and have a chance to compete, Elway said. Thats the thing. Anybody that comes in here, when we start training camp, is going to be competing for jobs. Obviously, with Tims reputation, if the guy is afraid to come in here and compete for that job, then maybe its not the right guy. With Tebow entering his first camp as the unquestioned starter, its likely the Broncos will seek out a veteran backup via free agency, but Elway said he wasnt sure whether the team would look at QBs who are stylistically similar to Tebow. Despite winning seven of his first eight starts, the Broncos were unbalanced under Tebow. They had the leagues best ground game but were ranked 31st in the 32-team league in passing. Fox said he wasnt worried that Tebows many offthe-field commitments would detract from working on his faulty footwork and messy mechanics. He said all the players deserve a break from football. He also said the readoption he installed midseason to capitalize on Tebows unique skills served as a bridge to his becoming a conventional quarterback but might remain a part of the Broncos arsenal in 2012. The Broncos brass like the way Tebow handled pressure in his first season as the starter. Elway said what he went through in his career in this quarterbackcrazed town was nothing compared to what Tebow has to endure. Elway said his scrutiny was mostly local, but when you look at Tim Tebow, what he went through was nationally based or maybe even worldwide-based. I mean, you talk about people Tebowing outside the Eiffel Tower, you know, that kind of tells you. Still, Elway said Tebow was unaffected by all the attention. As for Elway, he said he enjoyed his first year as an NFL executive even as he was lambasted on Twitter by Tebows legion of fans after showing tepid enthusiasm for the second-year quarterback early on. Yeah, I want to keep doing it, no question, Elway said. Theres no question, we had some tough situations this year, obviously with the quarterback situation, where we were coming into camp, even coming out of camp, but I think for the most part I enjoyed that. He said what hes proudest about is the bandwagon is now full again. That thing was pretty empty last year. Calling the Broncos a work in progress, Fox said his message to his players at the final team meeting Sunday was that there will be plenty of changes in 2012 because we would do whatever it takes to win the big-boy championship, not just the AFC West championship. They understand the business side of it and the offseason means were in the business side of football, Fox said. Well march forward. Behind Tebow. TEBOW Continued from Page B1 planned to add Griffin to the national team roster in 2009, but he was hurt shortly after being selected with the No. 1 overall pick and those plans were scrapped. Aldridge was on the national team roster but withdrew from consideration for the 2010 worlds for personal reasons. But both have a shot now if the Americans decide to bolster the frontcourt on a roster loaded with point guards and wing players. And its an experienced group, with Anthony playing in 59 games for the U.S. and James 55. The final roster of 12 players and six alternates is due June 18, before the NBA finals will be completed in this lockoutdelayed season, so there will be no time for a tryout camp. But USA Basketball needed to submit the list of all candidates by the end of this month so they could be entered in the drug-testing program. The Americans will have to decide how many point guards to keep from a list that includes Rose, the NBA MVP Paul; Williams, Westbrook and Billups though he started at shooting guard in Istanbul, as he does now playing alongside Paul on the Clippers. Size could be a consideration for a potential matchup against a Spanish team that boasts Pau and Marc Gasol, along with Oklahoma Citys Serge Ibaka. Colangelo said Aldridge is a versatile big man who can shoot from the perimeter, and he sounds just as excited about Griffin as the many fans of his astounding dunks. Hes showing what kind of future he has and I have no doubt that going forward Blake will have a significant impact on USA basketball, if not now than certainly in the future, Colangelo said. Colangelo said the Americans decided to tab 20 players, rather than the 18 that were originally expected, to protect themselves in case some players arent available when training camp opens. Whichever players are picked, the U.S. will again have the unmatched athleticism that allowed it to end an eight-year Olympic gold-medal drought in Beijing and a 16year absence from the gold-medal podium in the world championship two years ago. nights to wrap up a stretch of three games in three nights. Howard, who tied a career high with 45 points and set an NBA record by taking 39 free throws in Orlandos 117-109 win at Golden State on Thursday, was in foul trouble and finished with eight points and 10 rebounds. The Knicks swarmed him inside, with Tyson Chandler behind him and often bringing another big player to double him. Hes getting double and triple-teamed at some points, Anderson said. Hes doing a great job keeping composure, being patient, finding guys on the perimeter, and were moving the ball and thats why we got open shots tonight, just because of him. So the Magic turned to their perimeter game, going 17 of 35 (49 percent) from 3point range, trying the record for most allowed by the Knicks. Anderson and Hedo Turkoglu each made two in the fourth quarter, when the Magic took control after trailing most of the game. Its a matter of picking your poison, Redick said, but obviously if we see something early on like tonight, they doubled from the get-go pretty much, that allowed us to really play through him, throwing the ball into him and not necessarily throwing it to him for him to score, but for other guys to get shots. Carmelo Anthony had 33 points and eight rebounds in his return from a onegame absence with a sprained right ankle, but shot just 9 of 27. Toney Douglas and Iman Shumpert each scored 12 and Amare Stoudemire finished with 10. The Knicks have lost three in a row. They opened a stretch of four home games in a six-game span with another poor shooting night, particularly when the Magic showed them zone defense. Were not making no shots right now. It seems like we cant shoot the ball in motion right now. Everybody. We get stops and then at the other end we cant score the basketball. I dont know what is it, Anthony said. Weve just got to get out of that shooting slump. Weve got to start making shots and it makes it easy on the defensive end. We are playing defense but when you cant score the basketball it makes it hard. POOL Continued from Page B1 MAGIC Continued from Page B1 Associated PressSYRACUSE, N.Y.

Federer, Nadal win easily Associated PressMELBOURNE, Australia After surrendering her opening service game with a double-fault, Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova won 12 consecutive games in a 62, 6-0 win Tuesday over Russias Vera Dushevina to move into the second round of the Australian Open. Wearing the purple color synonymous with Wimbledon, the No. 2-ranked Kvitova underlined her growing stature on the womens tour by not giving Dushevina a second chance. The 21-yearold Czech broke her Russian rivals serve three times in each set and finished off Tuesdays opening match on Rod Laver Arena in an hour. Kvitova reached the quarterfinals here last year at the start of a season in which she surged up the rankings. Last week, she missed a chance to overhaul Caroline Wozniackis No. 1 ranking when she lost in the Sydney International semifinals. She needed to win the Sydney tournament to take the top ranking. But she gets another chance at Melbourne Park, where shes one of six women who can finish No. 1. I have great memories of this court from last year, when I came out, everything came back in my head, she said in a post-match TV interview. It was nice. It gave her the confidence to win her first major later in the year. The Wimbledon title was a surprise for me, she said. Nobody expected it, or knew I could be No. 2. Other women advancing included No. 27 Maria Kirilenko, who beat Australian hope Jarmila Gajdosova 6-4, 6-2, Canadas Aleksandra Wozniak and Shahar Peer of Israel. Mens No. 5 seed David Ferrer advanced in straight sets, 6-1, 6-4, 6-2, over Rui Machado of Portugal. Germanys Philipp Petzschner routed Czech Republics Lukas Rosol 6-0, 6-0, 6-2 to advance. Serena Williams, a 13time Grand Slam winner, will play a night match on Tuesday against Tamira Paszek. She didnt get to defend her title last year because of injury and comes into the seasons first major with concern over her left ankle, which she twisted at a tuneup tournament in Brisbane earlier this month. U.S. Open champion Sam Stosur will be trying to end a rough stretch in which the Aussie has only one win in two tournaments on home soil this month. Mens champion Novak Djokovic was to follow Kvitovas match on Rod Laver Arena. Djokovic, who won three of the four majors and finished No. 1 last season, opens against Paolo Lorenzi of Italy. Rafael Nadal, who lost his No. 1 ranking and six finals to Djokovic last year, wondered if hed even be able to play his first-round match at the Open on Monday after his right knee cracked and cramped and caused him unbelievable pain on the eve of the tournament. He already had plenty on his mind going into the years first Grand Slam tournament. There was his ailing shoulder and his spat with Roger Federer over player conditions on the tour, a rare clash between these respectful rivals that has since been smoothed over. After hours of medical tests and treatment, Nadal decided to play but was scared when he took the court against American qualifier Alex Kuznetsov. Judging by the scoreline, the outcome looked very matter of fact: Nadal won 6-4, 6-1, 6-1. Nadal and Federer are in the same half of the draw at a major for the first time since 2005. Third-seeded Federer started his bid for a 17th major title with a 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 win over Alexander Kudryavtsev of Russia. He then just as quickly batted away any notion of a simmering feud with Nadal. Ever the statesman, Federer conceded that players differed on ways of resolving certain issues and things are fine between us ... We cant always agree on everything. Mardy Fish, the highestranked of the American men, opened with a 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 win over Luxembourgs Gilles Muller. Defending champion Kim Clijsters beat Portuguese qualifier Maria Joao Koehler 7-5, 6-1. Li Na defeated Ksenia Pervak of Kazakhstan 6-3, 6-1. Associated Press Germanys Sabine Lisicki makes a backhand return to Switzerlands Stefanie Voegele on Tuesday during their firstround match at the Australian Open in Melbourne.

Associated PressLONDON What do you get for a monarch who has almost everything? Not, apparently, a new yacht, at least not one paid for with taxpayer funds. That was the message Monday as a brief boomlet of support for the idea of providing Queen Elizabeth II with a new royal yacht to mark her Diamond Jubilee was quickly deflated by Prime Minister David Cameron. It is estimated that a new yacht would cost at least $92 million. Camerons spokesman Steve Field said it would not be appropriate for public funds to be spent on a new yacht during times of economic hardship, but that the government would be supportive of private efforts to provide a new ship. He acknowledged that ministers have been approached over plans to raise donations for a privately funded vessel and that the government would react favorably to a firm plan. There are a number of proposals out there for a privately financed yacht, Field said. Cameron has been contacted over the proposals and Britains government could potentially play a role in facilitating the construction of a new royal flagship even though no taxpayer money would be used. I dont think anyone is suggesting public money should be used for this, Field told reporters Monday. There is a difficult economic situation, there are scarce public resources, therefore we dont think it would be an appropriate use of public money. The idea of a new royal yacht was proposed by Education Secretary Michael Gove, who suggested in a leaked letter that the queen should receive a replacement for the Royal Yacht Britannia, which was decommissioned in 1997 after 44 years as a floating royal residence known to have been cherished by the queen. He said the jubilee offers a tremendous opportunity to recognize in a very fitting way the queens highly significant contribution to the life of the nation and the Commonwealth. Royal watchers who have followed the queens long career remember that one of the very few times she has shown emotion in public was when she shed a tear at the decommissioning of the Britannia, which is now berthed in Edinburgh as a tourist display. The ship sprang a leak earlier in January, requiring repair work. It is not clear if the queen even wants a new yacht. She is in her mid-80s and her husband, Prince Philip, is 90 and was recently found to have heart disease. Buckingham Palace officials said they would not be commenting on the matter.

All-terrain wheelchair Disabled go off-roading in new chair S COTTR OGERS The News-Star MONROE, La. Keith Smith suffered a spinal cord injury and lost the use of his legs 20 years ago. Today, hes able to maneuver through the woods to hunt or go to the beach thanks to an all-terrain wheelchair designed by several local entrepreneurs. Smith is joined by his wife, Tammie, former state Rep. Charles McDonald, Don Brant and Ron Bush, who are partners of Freedom Mobility LLC, manufacturers of a new 6-by-6 all-terrain wheelchair. They call their invention the Freedom Chair because they want to give everyone the freedom and access to the lifestyle they love. Smith is an avid outdoorsman who loves to hunt. He has a number of horses on his East Carroll Parish farm, and now he can get out and feed them. Weve gone to the beach and tried it on the sand, and thats something Ive never been able to do before, Smith said. Weve gone into the woods through leaves where I normally would get stuck. I can feed my horses with it and get outside when its muddy and nasty and still get around on my farm. Last winter I got out in the snow and played with it, which is something you cant normally do in a wheelchair, Smith said. Ive really enjoyed being able to get out on the countryside without worrying about having to call somebody constantly to come pull me out. Its been nice to have this freedom. Its been good to see people get outdoors and do the same things Ive been able to experience. Tammie Smith said she pulled her husband out of the woods in his old wheelchair on more occasions than she can remember. Now he can go into the woods and not get stuck, Tammie Smith said. She helps her husband promote the new wheelchair, which she hopes will help others like Keith. She says her husband is normally a shy, quiet man, but he never hesitates to talk to others about the Freedom Chair. Keith can roll up to someone and say, Have you ever been stuck in that wheelchair? That starts a dialogue with people. Its a wonderful feeling knowing this chair helps someone else, she said. Brant came up with the idea about two years ago to build a four-wheel drive unit. Over time, the partners decided to work on a six-wheel drive unit. The idea of the whole thing is to give people mobility that theyve lost. Ive been in the manufacturing business since 1973, and this has been the most rewarding product, Brant said. The people who buy them come up to us and shake our hands and hug our necks and say, Thank you for giving me back something I lost. When something happens to you and you lose your mobility, its devastating. McDonald expects the Freedom Chair will be marketed nationwide in the coming months. It will be manufactured locally. Its been tested in snow, sand, hilly terrain. One of our partners has squirrel hunted off of it, McDonald said. The group has already H EALTH & L IFE R ecently, the American Cancer Society released its 2012 Guidelines on Nutrition and Physical Activity Cancer Prevention. Based on sound science and strong evidence, the new recommendations to help reduce your risk of cancer through nutrition and physical activity are basically summed up in four steps. First, achieve and maintain a healthy weight throughout your life. Second, adopt a physically active lifestyle. Find some way to exercise several times a week. Third, consume a healthy diet, with an emphasis on plant Dr. C. Joseph Bennett AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY 2012 changes in nutrition guidelines See BENNETT / Page C3 Dr. Sunil Gandhi CANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Different options of radiation I saw a 65-year-old woman who presented with a lump in her breast. A surgeon did a biopsy and it was cancer. Her choices were to remove the whole breast or just remove the cancerous growth followed by radiation therapy. She elected the latter. For radiation therapy, her choices are short treatment with brachy therapy or regular treatment called external beam therapy for almost five weeks. This requires daily visits to a radiation center. My patient elected the latter. Recently, there was an annual breast cancer conference in San Antonio, Texas. Dr. Benamin Smith and colleagues presented See GANDHI / Page C2 W e all know that women and men are different, and thank God for that. Just ask your significant other about a certain subject, and see what a different answer you get from your own opinion. But did you know that also women and men have different types of skin? Women are not a miniature version of us men, and we are not a bigger version of women. We are different genetically, and structurally, and this includes the skin. These differences explain why we react differently to being in the sunlight, or using soap and cleansing products, and even how we react to temperature change. There will always be exceptions, but generally speaking if you look at a males skin compared to a females skin, you will find that it is more likely to be darker, or more pigmented, and show red tones more so than yellow tones which are seen in females. The skin of the male also contains much more collagen, which could shed light on why it seems that women age quicker than men (Please, no hate mail). Other characteristics that males have that seem to slow aging includes the thickness of the skin, but also the presence of more Difference between a mans and a womans skin T he holidays are finished. The college bowl games are done. The forced friendliness with strange relatives I mean strangers and relatives is complete. I can pack away again the how nice to see you again fake smile I bought a few years ago. The turkey leftovers are gone, finally. Every year, I run out of casserole recipes, sauces, condiments, and household uses for leftover turkey. This year, I even went online to see if there were any dessert recipes to sneak a stray leg or wing into turkey chocolate mousse, white chocolate turkey turtles, orange turkey meringue pie. Alas, I wasnt successful. An unnamed co-worker asked me if I had any New Years resolutions. The way she fisheyed me, I got the impression she was hinting at weight loss or exercise programs. I thrust my double chin forward and proudly announced I had accomplished all my resolutions last year and was feeling perfect for 2012. I scurried away before she could respond its a full-time job, being perfect. Truly, though, I am becoming an anti-resolutionist.

results from a retrospective review of outcomes for women who had partial breast irradiation with brachytherapy or wholebreast irradiation. They used Medicare claims data to identify all patients older than 66 with newly diagnosed invasive breast cancer during the study period. Dr. Benjamin Smith is an assistant professor in the department of radiation oncology at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. The analysis included 130,535 women. Patients who had brachytherapy tended to be older and white; to have more comorbidity; and were less likely to have axillary lymph node involvement or to have received chemotherapy. The incidence of brachytherapy increased with time, with less than 1 percent of patients treated with brachytherapy in 2000 and 13 percent treated with brachytherapy in 2007. We found that women treated with brachytherapy experience a twofold increased risk for subsequent mastectomy, indicating that women treated with brachytherapy were more likely to lose their breast after their initial breast-conserving therapy, said Smith. Additionally, 9.6 percent of brachytherapy patients required hospitalization during follow-up, compared with 5.7 percent among women who had wholebreast irradiation. The brachytherapy group also had a higher infection rate (8.1 percent versus 4.5 percent). The risk of rib fracture, fat necrosis, and breast pain were much more with brachytherapy compared with standard radiation therapy. This clearly shows that brachytherapy is inferior and more toxic. At the same time, I want readers to realize some limitations of this study. This study was a retrospective analysis of data submitted to Medicare and so there can be some mistakes in it. At the same time, this is a more realistic view of what is happening in the United States. Prospective randomized study is under way and results will be available soon. Until then, I suggest women to consider the ease of brachytherapy with the negative of potential problems before making any final decision. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

For persons with developmental disabilities (PWDD), however, this early warning system needs to be specifically taught, and caregivers play a vital role in keeping their loved ones healthy. The challenges and living situations of this population are diverse. Self-awareness and communication skills vary widely. PWDD may live in the family home, a group home or independently. But, no matter where our children or family members may live, they, or someone in their lives, need to identify symptoms of disease and communicate with doctors. Those of us who have a family member with disabilities already know how difficult it can be to talk about the abstract or about something that might not happen. The symptoms of breast or prostate cancer may be so slow developing or subtle that changes are perceived as normal. Sometimes a fear of doctors or medical procedures will complicate the search for an early diagnosis. Citrus Memorial Health System and the Key Training Center will provide workshops on Womens Health Issues on Tuesday, Jan. 24, and Mens Health Issues on Tuesday, Jan. 31. Both workshops will be presented by a CMHS nurse and begin at 10 a.m. in the Chet Cole Life Enrichment Center (CCLEC) at the Key Training Center. These workshops are open to the public, but with limitations. Since we will be talking about sensitive issues and because some of the adults with disabilities may be discussing these things for the first time, organizers want to limit participants (PWDD, family members or caregivers) to women, only, for the Jan. 24 workshop; and men, only, for the Jan. 31 workshop. The CCLEC is at 5521 Buster Whitton Way, on the Lecanto campus of the Key Training Center. For information, call Stephanie Hopper at 352-344-0288.

facial hair. Scientists seem to think that the hair follicle takes up more space on the skin, and this may have something to do with delaying the process of aging. There is a downside to all of this: Males, because of the thicker skin, and hair, and also increased production of sweat and oil, have more odor control problems (Please, no hate mail). This has led to a huge industry of soaps, lotions, and other assorted products that are distinctly different for females and males because of these underlying different characteristics of our skin. An example being the fact that antibacterial soaps are marketed more toward males, because it is clear that males, generally speaking, tend to sweat more than females. This helps skin bacteria grow more rapidly than females. It is said that skin is an organ just like your heart or liver, and it is likely the largest organ in your body. It is dynamic, and it is constantly growing and regenerating itself. But once again, females are different than males. If you had to use words to describe female skin, it would be common to hear the word tender, or fair, as opposed to males who tend to have tougher skin. This also makes a difference on how well males can tolerate cold over females. Fibroblasts, which are cells that are present in the skin and capable of forming collagen, is very important in chronic inflammation and injury that arises from wounds and surgery. Female fibroblasts tend to grow at a faster and higher rate than male fibroblasts, and this could explain why females tend to heal better after injury, or surgery. This could explain why males sometimes demonstrate thicker and heavier scarring, because their skin is thicker. Summary: the skin is a complex organ, as I mentioned. It is essential for life. It absorbs vitamins from the sun, it protects the underlying body, including muscles and organs, it breathes and exchanges fluids, and it helps us fight disease. But there is clearly a difference between the skin of a woman and the skin of a man.

A New Years Day weight loss resolution leads to the monthly fees of a January gym or diet contract. The stress leads to lethargy and weight gain. They feel miserable about their lack of follow-through and then the burden of added expenses redoubles their negative self image. Im going to start a trend with myself at the end of 2012 by focusing on anti-resolution skills. New Years resolutions start with the belief that there is something wrong and needs to be fixed. An anti-resolution skill will be to ook back at the accomplishments of the year. I want to focus the spotlight of a new year on the successes of the year just past. I want to highlight the special occurrences, situations, blessings, and happenstances that have given me and other people in my life pleasure, peace, emotional nourishment, and growth. The second step will be for me to develop plans to keep as many of those positives moving forward into 2013, continuing to foster positives and give pleasure. I will write those things down in a journal to keep them in mind during the year. I will also record new special occurrences, situations, blessings and happenstances that occur in 2013. As I thought this through, I decided not to wait until December but to start now and see how many I can list before the end of this year. I know that sometimes Ill be in a negative mood and wont allow myself to think of positive things Ill just read the ones Ive already listed and add that I was able to read the list. As Ive contemplated this little plan, Ive suddenly realized that in my zealousness of being an anti-resolutionist, I made a resolution. Yes, I got that! You dont have to email me and tell me that I cornered myself into doing exactly what I vowed I wouldnt do. ... Alas, I guess Im successful at being unsuccessful.

New Year Special Study looks at statin drugs to prevent cancer deaths Q : Can statin drugs help prevent fatal prostate cancer? A: There currently is not enough information available to say yes or no, but a recent study in the journal Cancer (2011) suggests that perhaps statin use may be associated with protection against prostate cancer death. In this case-controlled study, researchers reviewed the medical records of 380 men who had died of prostate cancer and another 380 men of the same age and race without prostate cancer or with non-lethal prostate cancer. Most of the men were white and in their mid to late 60s. The researchers found that men who died of prostate cancer were about half as likely to have taken a statin drug compared to those who did not die of prostate cancer. When they accounted for whether or not men were overweight and other health problems and medications, it turned out that those with fatal cancers were 63 percent less likely to have ever taken a statin medication. In addition, the risk reduction was greater in men taking more potent statins. However, researchers point out that the use of statins to lower cholesterol may not be the reason for cancer death prevention, but perhaps other factors such as diet and exercise are involved. Clearly, more study is needed before any recommendation can be made to use statins for prostate cancer prevention. According to the American Cancer Society, about one in every six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point, and one in every 36 men will die of the disease. There are currently seven statin drugs available: atorvastatin (Lipitor), fluvastatin (Lescol), lovastatin (Mevacor, Altoprev), pitavastatin (Livalo), pravastatin (Pravachol), rosuvastatin (Crestor) and simvastatin (Zocor). Atorvastatin, lovastatin, pravastatin and simvastatin are also available as generic drugs. Richard P Hoffmann, Pharm.D., has been a pharmacist for more than 40 years. Send questions to him at 2960 E.

His dad said he was so delighted because he can now go anywhere he wanted. We also had a lady in Las Vegas who loved to go to the park with her son.

And finally, limit consumption if you drink alcoholic beverages. As a matter of fact, for the majority of us who dont smoke, these are the most important ways to reduce cancer risk. Writing about this got me thinking about how our nutrition and activity guidelines have changed since the American Cancer Society first published them in 1984 as weve learned more about how nutrition and physical activity impact cancer risk. One of the key changes is the evolution to an emphasis on encouraging a healthy dietary pattern as opposed to individual foods or nutrients to reduce cancer risk. As time has gone on, research suggests that its likely the all those vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals working together that helps to reduce risk. And the best source for all of these is a diet focused on plant-based foods. Recommendations to live a physically active lifestyle have also been added, not only because we now know that physical activity helps to directly reduce the risk of breast and colon cancers, but also because of the impact that activity can have on weight control. The research on the relationship between excess weight and cancer risk has been evolving for quite some time, and now there is no question that being overweight increases the risk of many types of cancer, and increases the risk of dying from cancer as well. The emphasis on weight control within our guidelines has become stronger and stronger throughout the years, now topping our list of recommendations above. Since the 1980s, obesity rates have doubled for adults and tripled for children. Right now, at a time when its estimated that 14 percent of all cancer deaths in men and 20 percent in women are related to being overweight, 64 percent of adults are overweight, including 28 percent who are obese. Sixteen percent of youths are overweight, and an additional 12 percent are obese. And research suggests that these kids will be overweight as adults, increasing their risk of a variety of types of cancer down the road. At a time we know that physical activity directly reduces the risk of two of the leading sites of cancer, breast and colon, and can impact many others through its effect on weight control, one-half of adults dont meet our minimum physical activity recommendation. And 44 percent of youth dont attend PE classes in an average week. Almost 33 percent report watching three or more hours of television each day, and 25 percent report using a computer for three or more hours per day. For many of us, food is everywhere, and we can get it just about any place and any time. When I was growing up, I dont ever recall there being food at a gas station, and for sure, fast food restaurants were not open all night. Unlike my kids, I was not able to buy candy, sodas, chips, and other snacks at a store or in vending machines at my school. Portion sizes are huge. Restaurant portions are typically two to three times what a standard serving size would be. And the more food in front of us, the more we are likely to eat. We are bombarded with advertisements for highcalorie, high-sugar foods and beverages, especially our children. When I was growing up, we had three television stations. Now, my kids are being hit on TV, via computers, in movie theaters, on packages and even in school, with ads promoting foods and beverages of low nutritional value. The majority of our kids do not have regular physical education classes, where they can not only be active and burn some calories, but learn lifelong skills that could help them live a physically active life. As a society, we must work together to change environments to make it easier for all Americans to live healthier lives. We need to speak up in our kids schools about limiting the amount of unhealthy foods and beverages they have access to. We need to speak up at our city council meetings and tell them that our neighborhoods need sidewalks, bike lanes, and parks. Why is this so important? Because following these guidelines can help save lives from cancer, not to mention heart disease and diabetes. The science proves this again and again.

Bill continues to give blood: He gave 25 gallons in Dunedin and 135 pints (almost 17 gallons) since coming to Beverly Hills in 2000. Knights in service Special to the ChronicleBill Klug of Abbot Francis Sadlier Council No. 6168 Knights of Columbus has set a new blood donation mark that is going to be hard to meet or break. Klug has surpassed the 40-gallon mark during his time as a Knight in Florida. He gave 25 gallons while a member of the council in Dunedin; when he moved to Beverly Hills, he joined the local council and has added more than15 gallons to his achievement of 40 gallons. He is still on his way to a new figure every two weeks, as he donates to the LifeSouth apheresis program, which can provide as many platelets as five whole blood donations. His 40 gallons is equivalent to 320 pints of blood, which at the accepted standard of one pint to save three lives, would translate into Klugs having saved almost 1,000 lives since 1980. Klug will be honored at the Our Lady of Grace Church and the Knights of Columbus Abbot Francis Sadlier Council No. 6168 second annual New Years Resolution Blood Drive from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21, in the Parish Life Center.

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, J ANUARY17, 2012 C5 P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. An inexperienced player who tries to learn by using a computer program is in danger of getting into bad habits if he thinks the machine is perfect. However, if the neophyte has a teacher at his side, a lot can be gleaned from the programs errors. Here is one example I will allow the software to remain anonymous. Look at the South hand. After two passes, East opens one diamond, South overcalls two clubs (would you?), West passes, North raises to three clubs, and East passes. What should South do now? Note that the distribution of the East hand, exactly 4-4-3-2, is the only one with which you open one diamond holding exactly three cards in the suit. However, especially in the third position, many experts would open one spade, willing, if necessary, to call the hand 5-4 in the majors. If partner ends up on lead, would you rather he choose a diamond or a spade? There is a strong case for Souths overcalling one no-trump, not two clubs. But given that he has bid clubs, when partner raises, he should take a shot at three no-trump. (The computer program bid four clubs, which is neither one thing nor another.) Yes, three no-trump can be defeated by any opening lead but a diamond. Given the auction, though, what is West likely to select? Right a diamond, partners bid suit. Then South drives out the club ace and has nine tricks. Unless you are sure it is hopeless, go for three no-trump, not five of a minor.

One of our sons, Mark, obtained a contractors license and asked to remodel our kitchen and bathroom so he could show his work to potential customers. He said the only cost to us would be for materials, which he estimated to be about $300. Mark has always been a troubled kid and stubborn to a fault. He especially doesnt like taking advice or suggestions from others. My husband and I decided to limit his first attempt to the bathroom. We figured the risk would be worth it, because he had asked so little of us in the past. Also, he is a good carpenter and has made some lovely furniture. You probably already guessed what happened. Mark did a terrible job. He ignored our requests and didnt do what he said he would, and we were left with some major problems. When we asked for an itemized bill, we got one line: Total amount due, $400. After we explained our feelings to him, he walked out and hasnt spoken to us since. That was two years ago. After months of having our cards and gifts returned, my husband and I finally decided to leave him alone and hope he will come around. We didnt invite him for Thanksgiving, as he ruins the holiday for us. Now our daughter is upset, saying she wants him at all the family gatherings. But its uncomfortable to be around Mark, because he wont speak to us. I feel we are being punished for his immaturity. How do we mend this terrible rift? Sad Mom Dear Sad : You already know that Mark is difficult and stubborn, and he may never come around. Excluding him is one way to make things easier for you. But if you want him to be part of the family, you will have to do the heavy lifting and be very forgiving. Tell Mark that you love him and would like to pretend the bathroom construction never happened, if thats OK with him. Another suggestion would be to have your other children act as intermediaries to effect a reconciliation or to have family gatherings in their homes instead of yours. Dear Annie: Through 30 years of marriage, my husband has cheated on me with many different women. I found out a couple of years ago. At first, I tried to change to please him my looks, my clothes, my hair, my personal interests but nothing worked. Once I came to terms with the fact that his adventures will not stop and my feelings dont matter, I decided to plan my departure. When I make my move, it will be with a definite plan, a calm heart and a clear head. I am working, seeing friends and family, and putting away funds for my future. I still love my husband, but I no longer need him. I have stopped telling others, because the only support I get is in the form of others trashing him, telling me what I ought to do, or laughing about his ultimate demise. This doesnt help. Those who want to be supportive can say, Im sorry youre going through this. How are you doing? That would be much appreciated. Biding My Time in the South Dear Biding: Many people believe trashing the ex is supportive, but it often backfires. Thank you for being the Voice of Experience. Dear Annie : Thank you for encouraging Road Warrior to seek the help of Grandmas doctor, the DMV or the police to get her to stop driving. My husbands family didnt do anything, and the result was a tragedy. Grandpa pulled out on a highway in front of another car. The collision killed both grandparents. While saddened by their deaths, we count our blessings that another life wasnt lost in the crash, although a young man will live with the memories of an accident he couldnt prevent.
