A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Its been a scant generation ago when Cheryl and John Phillips moved to the waters edge on Kings Bay. For John, sitting on his perch at home back in 1996, was like peering into a giant aquarium kaleidoscope of aquamarine splendor. But recently, when he looked out all he saw was muck and silt fueled by a hair-like filamentous algae lyngbya that has generously gained the upper hand in burying the luster of the cove he so loves. Lyngbya can create large mats of muck on the surface and bottoms of bodies, covering baby springs, in this case, Kings Bay, and smothering other native plants. They are also harmful to boat propellers and manatees. I just got tired of looking at it and thought about ways in which I could help clean it up, Phillips said. A few years ago, he began work on a prototype of a vacuum system he thought ought to do the job. However, it took a while S HEMIR W ILES Staff Writer HERNANDO I cant are two words not in Lillian Smiths vocabulary. She recalls a line from an inspirational poem by Marianne Williamson, which Nelson Mandela used in his inaugural speech in 1994: Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. Smiths strength and ambition manifested itself early in her life. As a child growing up on the picturesque Caribbean island of Jamaica, Smith said her father, who owned his own business as a fisherman, always told her she could accomplish anything she wanted as long as she was willing to work for it. Her goal became to be her own boss, but with little opportunities for prosperity in Jamaica, Smith and her husband, Denis, left there home to start a new life in America. The day she became a U.S. citizen was one of the best days in her life. It was awesome, she said, beaming. Once settled in Long Island, N.Y., Smith said they sent for their two children to join them. But beyond acclimating to a new place in a different country, it was in New York where Smith would finally flex her entrepreneurial muscle. Going from a subtropical climate to a place where there was more variation in the weather, Smith said the change wreaked havoc on her skin. Thats when she discovered Mary Kay and loved the product so much, she became a consultant and has been with the company for more than 30 years. And I enjoy every minute of it, she said.

NEWS BRIEF Navy shipmates reunite N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Nearly 50 years ago, they were teenage boys who joined the Navy John Ski Szafranski, a city boy from Chicago and Merle Travis, a farm boy from West Virginia. Szafranski, already a commercial diver at 15, once helped move a German submarine from Africa to Chicago to put in the Museum of Science and Industry. When the Navy learned of his skills and experience, they snapped him up and rushed him through the ranks to third class gunners mate. Travis had joined because jobs were scarce in West Virginia. He went in as a seaman, stationed at a nuclear weapons training center in Norfolk, Va. He was assigned as a gunners mate to the USS Saratoga, stationed Eloise Van Ness DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle Lillian Smith prepares a gift basket for a fundraiser for Karen Dixon-Pulcini.

before he could settle on a vacuum head with wheels on it that could both pick up the muck and navigate the contours of a shallow water bottom, Phillips said. Then, he got to test it out by doing some cleanup in the Hunter Springs Park area, which went well. Last month, the patent for their vacuum was approved and this month, Phillips and his wife donated the prototype worth about $75,000 in personal funds to the Save Kings Bay Lyngbya Cleanup Project, which is sponsored by the Crystal River/Kings Bay Rotary. We were just pleased that we could jump in and help clean up this beautiful bay. Lets forget about all the excuses or reasons it got this way and just clean it up, Phillips said. Art Jones, who began leading the effort to clean up the bay last year with an army of volunteers, said he was surprised and excited about the donation. Jones recently made a presentation to the Crystal River City Council proudly displaying images of the cleanup boat and thanking the couple. Jones asked for any help city officials and the community can render in their efforts to restore Kings Bay to its pristine glory. He said the new machine will be used in addition to the use of rakes and pitchforks volunteers have employed since the cleanup program began. He expects cleanup with the new machine to begin as soon as captains can be trained to operate it. Jones said his groups goal is a five-year plan to sift through the silt and muck in the entire 600 acres of Kings Bay. Our hope is we can bring it to a tipping point, into balance soon, and the natural processes will kind of take over and restore everything to how it used to be, Jones said. Cheryl Phillips said their future business plan with the cleanup vacuum includes not only providing the service to restore shallow waterways, but also manufacturing these vacuum systems in Citrus County. Both the service and manufacturing arms have the potential of creating new and sustainable jobs for our countys citizens. Chronicle reporter A.B.

I n the movie Network, television news anchor Howard Beale rants onair, Im mad as hell, and Im not going to take it anymore! That galvanizes viewers across the nation to work themselves into a combative frenzy. So, now imagine someone in that state of mind. The coffeemaker he got for Christmas brews only colored water. The credit card company still hasnt removed a charge from a item that was returned six months ago. The car still makes a rattling noise even after the mechanic insists he fixed it. Now imagine the person picking up the phone or getting in the car to talk to a customer service representative about the issue. By the time they come to see me, theyre expecting a bad experience and theyre ready for a fight, said a customer service worker at a local retail store. They cuss at us all the time. Weve been spit on. People throw things. Contrary to what some people think, the reason businesses have customer service is because they want customers to be happy. They want to help solve their customers issues and build their loyalty. There are exceptions. Were not talking about people in business to scam customers; thats a separate issue. Today were talking about legitimate businesses that genuinely want to make every customer as happy as possible. Here are some tips about dealing with customer service people and how to complain effectively: To get the best and most satisfying experience, its important to choose the right time to contact customer service, said Don Yager, senior director of Performance Development Group and board member of the International Customer Service Association. That doesnt just mean not late on Friday, but the right time from an emotional perspective. Heres where the Golden Rule or catch more flies with honey than vinegar proverb comes into play. I love my job and I want to make the customer happy, said the local customer service desk person. But when people come in with their guard up, biting your head off, wanting a fight, they cant listen to anything you say, even if youre trying to help them. When returning an item to a store, when the customer service person asks, Whats wrong with it? its not an indictment, a judgment or a trick question. Its a standard question so the person can determine how to handle it so the store can get its money back from the vendor. Some products, such as hair products, may have to be classified as hazardous waste, which is handled differently as a return. Also, if youve used the item and it works fine but you decide you dont want it, tell the customer service person its been used. Again, its about the store knowing how to get its money back from the vendor and avoiding putting the item back on the shelf and unknowingly selling it as new to another customer. So, dont lie. Some stores require a receipt with returns, but some do not. Ask (politely). Also, read the warranty fine print before returning a bigticket item such as a television or electronics item. You might be required to return it directly to the manufacturer and not to the store where you purchased it. When dealing with a customer service representative who is based in another country, Yager said its OK to say, Im having trouble understanding your accent. Can I speak to someone else? (Not: I want to speak to someone who talks American!) Similarly, if a customer service person tries to divert the conversation to get you to purchase an upgraded or additional product, its OK to say, Right now I want to get this issue taken care of and Im not going to buy something from you today while Im still dealing with this. Use multiple channels Web chat or email. If the customer service line doesnt connect you with a live person (if thats what you want), search the Internet for the companys corporate office and call the main office. Also, use social media Facebook or Twitter to broadcast your complaint about a company or service. Eventually, it will get back to the business or company. Know what you want to happen before you call you want the item replaced or your money back. If you had a bad experience at a hotel, maybe a free nights stay or a free upgrade on a future visit will make you happy. Sometimes all people want is to know that somebody is listening and a sincere apology will relieve their stress, Yager said. Play the loyalty card. Say, My family has been longtime customers of your products and weve always been satisfied until now. I hope you can help me. Take note of who you spoke with, time and date of call and what was said and keep it as a record. Follow up with a phone call, email, tweet, Facebook post or even a hand-written letter, especially if you were satisfied with the result. Is there stuff you want to know about? Have stuff you think people should know? Email your ideas to nkennedy@chronicle online.com for consideration. Knowing how to complain effectively Nancy Kennedy STUFF YOU SHOULD KNOW C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterHERNANDO Max has a mission, a message and can raise funds to help animal charities. Max is a spokes-animal to educate children about animal abuse, said Arbuth Bumgarner, an international businessman whose home is in Hernando. Max is a handsome plush toy wearing an identifying tabard from his collar when he is the Pet Avenger. Removing his collar makes him into a regular cuddly toy. Max also has his own cartoon strip that shows his ferocious character when he goes after bad people who abuse animals. As the Pet Avenger, Max looks large and angry facing down villains. He frees trapped pets and takes them to shelters to find forever homes. Max is the brainchild of Bumgarners brother, Clyde LeFevre, publisher of Petpalooza magazine in upstate New York for seven years. LeFevre said his inspiration for the Pet Avenger happened when his wife, Lenore, was knocked down accidentally by their 6-month-old puppy. Max is powerful, Lenore said. Like a superhero, LeFevre thought, and looked for an illustrator for a cartoon strip. LeFevre writes the stories. Unlike other cartoon dogs, Maxs sole mission is to right the wrongs done to innocent and helpless animals, from puppy mills to dog fight rings. These stories are in each edition of the free magazine that publishes pet-care information articles and lists of pet-care providers. Getting a plush version of Max was the task of Bumgarner, an import/export businessman who finds products for business solutions. Clyde asked me to help him grow his magazine in other parts of the country, Bumgarner said. There is not a pet magazine to the best of my knowledge in this area. Stores that buy the Pet Avenger can designate a local animal charity to receive a donation from Petpalooza. For every plush toy thats sold, the Petpalooza company will donate 3 percent of our sales back to local shelters in a region, Bumgarner said, and he hoped the stores would make their own donations as well. The brothers also are considering creating coloring books to hand out in schools as a talking point about animal abuse.

Congress is in Presidents Day recess this week. QUESTION: Are you sympathetic to the concerns of those living by Three Sisters Springs? Yes Allowing the public at locations where homes and property can be viewed is an invasion of privacy. 50 percent (112 votes) No. They should be overjoyed that the springs property has been preserved vs. developed. 35 percent (78 votes) Somewhat. But if the viewing areas and kayak landing were near the homes of others I doubt the same people would be upset. 7 percent (16 votes) No. If they dont like it, they can move. 7 percent (16 votes) Total votes: 222.

at Mayport, Fla., in November 1961. Szafranski came on board in 1962 as a diver, but spent time helping Travis on the gun mount. The young men now both 70 served together for two years, their bunks barely 2 feet apart. After that they went their separate ways, being reassigned elsewhere, and lost touch with each other. Thanks to serendipity and manatees after 48 years the shipmates met again in Crystal River. About two weeks ago, my wife and I decided we had to see the manatees, Travis said. He and his wife, Charlotte, are winter residents in Eustis and live the rest of the year in West Virginia. They found their way to Crystal River, but were unsure how to find manatees and stopped at a gas station to ask. The young lady said go to the dive shop across the street and they can tell you, Travis said. They went inside American Pro Dive on U.S. 19 and saw an old dive suit and helmet on display, which looked familiar to the retired Navy man. Then they started talking with one of the shops dive pros the owner of the dive suit who wore it while diving for the Navy. I saw his card saying Ski on it and said, I was stationed with a couple of Skis in the Navy, Travis said. Szafranski asked his name. I knew a Travis, he said. So we got to comparing locations and found out he was the same guy who slept in the bunk above me and we worked in the same gun mount, Travis said. This past Thursday, the men met again in Crystal River to share a few Navy stories before heading out to find manatees. He was a judo instructor for the fleet, but me and judo didnt get along, Travis said. He was always doing something when he wasnt working and sometimes no one in the division knew where he was. Hed just disappear. I had a top secret crypto clearance and went on diving ops that no one knew about, Szafranski said. I couldnt say where I was. The men talked about crossing the equator and the celebration that took place aboard ship, which involved crawling through an expansion tunnel filled with slimy garbage while being flogged on the rump with hoses by shellbacks and then having to kiss Neptunes belly. As Szafranski explained, Youd have to kiss the belly of the fattest sailor, because he was King Neptune. And his belly would be smeared with axle grease and theyd rub your face in it. A shellback is someone who has gone through the ritual once before. Travis added, When youre out at sea and its 120 degrees and all you see is ocean for four or five days, you need something to do to break the monotony. In 1963, Travis left the Saratoga and was reassigned to a destroyer in Newport, R.I. He retired from the Navy after 20 years. Szafranski left the Saratoga in 1964. I went to Vietnam for two tours as a diver, he said. I didnt stay on the ship in Nam. I was in the water, around the bridges. Id set up for ambushes. I would call in naval gun fire. Wed go out in four-man teams, directing fire missions for aircraft. As the men talked, theyd stop and shake their heads. Can you believe this? Szafranski said. After all these years.

Though Smith loved living in New York, when her husband retired from the Long Island Rail Road, they decided to move to Florida to enjoy warmer weather. It was never in the original plan to move specifically to Citrus County, but after attending a seminar in New York put on by builders, she and her husband decided to visit the area. And I fell in love, of course, she said. I just love everything about Citrus County. So the Smiths officially moved to the area in 2003 and one of the first things Smith said she did was decide to become a part of the local social landscape. I wanted to integrate myself into the society here, she said. Therefore, the first thing she did was join the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce, which Smith said allowed her to attend events and meet people in the community. Then Dennis Miller, WYKE station manager, approached her about becoming a chamber ambassador, which opened even more doors. But what really allowed her to network even more was being a founding member of the Business Womens Alliance of the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce, she said, and joining Leadership Citrus at the urging of her good friend, Laura Lee Putzback. She was so instrumental, Smith said, and I dont regret it. Now Im on the board of governors with Leadership Citrus. In addition to being active within the local chamber, Smith is also involved with the Suncoast Business Masters, HPH Hospice, the Northern Lights Networking Group, and she most recently became president of the Afro-American Club of Citrus County. With more than 100 members, Smith said the AfroAmerican Club of Citrus County is very proactive by giving out scholarships every year, distributing meals to the needy and supporting the weekly supplemental take-home food program Blessings in a Backpack. Over the past seven years, weve given out $70,000 in scholarships, she said. We give to everyone who needs it. That is what I like about the club. I enjoy meeting people and hearing their stories. And it allows me to know the county better. ... It keeps me in the loop. It is her hope to make the club more known in the community so people are aware an African-American club does exist in Citrus County and does a great deal to help local people. That is my dream, to see us reach out and be more visible in the community, she said. Smith also loves to volunteer. For her, volunteering is paramount because she believes everyone should want to give back to their community. Youve got to give back, she said. Im going to be living here. This is my home. You have to make it a better place for the next generation. What we do now does impact the youth. She also strongly believes in people helping one another and being grateful for all her blessings. Thats what were here for, to love, to nurture, to love each other. I see that as our purpose, she said. Even if it is just a kind word or a heartfelt hug, Smith said spreading peace and showing genuine concern for one another should be encouraged. In her life, she said she has always been willing to do what she could to help another person. People should not let trivial things like ones skin color keep them from reaching out to others and making a difference. Its all up here, she said pointing to her head. Thats what keeps people back. And it shouldnt. We are all children of God, she said.

Starkey has exclusively partnered with Gardner Audiology to perform this study throughout Tampa Bay. BENEFITS OF PARTICIPATION? Your participation will earn you a free hearing aid fitting and follow up care in exchange for completing a pre and post-fitting questionnaire. At the end of 30 days, you will return the study aids or purchase at a discount. Its your choice. The normal hearing ear has 30,000 healthy cells. Most hearing losses are irreversible because of damage to cells from such things as age and noise exposure. WHAT IS SPECTRAL IQ? Even the best digital hearing aids may sound distorted because they attempt to amplify sound to the damaged hearing cells of the inner ear. Spectral IQ, patented by Starkey, bypasses the most damaged hearing cells and diverts amplified speech sounds to useable cells, resulting in a boost of speech recognition.

School zone WHITE LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. An unusual school zone speed limit sign in suburban Detroit has drawn the attention of an irked driver. Greg Smith told The Oakland Press of Pontiac he noticed the sign recently in Oakland Countys White Lake Township that lists six separate times when drivers should slow down to 25 mph on school days. Smith said drivers practically have to come to a stop to read it. An elementary, middle and high school all are nearby. Police Chief Ed Harris said a meeting is being called with the White Lake Township supervisor, the school district and the county road commission about the sign. Harris said the township didnt put it up, but is trying to resolve the matter.Emu on the lam SOUTH HERO, Vt. An elusive emu on the lam in Vermont has been amusing residents in communities on Lake Champlain. The 150-pound flightless bird looks like a small ostrich. It has been spotted wandering here and there in Grand Isle and South Hero since it escaped from a local farm five weeks ago. It was spotted again Friday outside the South Hero elementary school, where it walked by a window of the principals office. School worker Steve Berard tried to lasso it with an extension cord, but it broke free. The emus owner told WCAX-TV he bought three emus for his grandchildren, but they dont make great pets. Hes taken out an ad in a local newspaper saying, Free emu if you can capture it. Prison bark ASUNCION, Paraguay A stray dog is getting credit for thwarting a prison break in Paraguay. Officials said three dangerous inmates dug a tunnel about 26 feet from their cell to the street, and were about to break free before dawn when the dog began to bark and alerted a guard. Authorities at the Tacumbu prison on the southern edge of the capital dragged the unlucky prisoners before the media on Friday to tell the tale. Because of a stray dog, we couldnt escape, complained Hilario Villalba. When I reached the street, sticking my head out, the stupid dog barked and alerted a guard. Villalba, who is serving a 30year double-murder sentence, vowed in his native Guarani language that hell keep trying to escape because he said his sentence isnt fair. Meanwhile in neighboring Argentina, a yellow labrador named Tiza alerted border guards to a motorist trying to smuggle $110,000 in $100 bills into Uruguay. The driver denied carrying any money, but the dog sniffed out the bills hidden in the glove compartment, another compartment and inside the rear seats, Argentinas tax collection agency announced Friday.$2 pumpkin trial ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. A 23-year-old college student from New Mexico is scheduled to go to trial for allegedly stealing a small pumpkin worth $2. KOAT-TV in Albuquerque, N.M., reported Lauren Medina will go before a jury and Moriarity Magistrate Judge Steve Jones on Tuesday. She is accused of taking the pumpkin in October 2011 from McCalls Pumpkin Patch in Moriarty. Her sister, Annette Atencio, said Medina spent $75 on food that day but forgot to pay for the pumpkin she picked up as she was leaving. Atencio said her sister offered to pay, but was refused and then handcuffed. Atencio said shes in disbelief the theft charge against her sister was not dropped. She said her sister could have pleaded guilty and been given probation, but refused. Robbers wanted COPENHAGEN, Denmark What to do when burglaries get out of hand? In Denmark, police think they might have the answer: Turn to the experts themselves, the housebreakers. Northern Zealand police spokesman Finn Bernth Andersen said burglars caught redhanded in the district will be asked to participate in an anonymous questionnaire about their profession. The region, which has seen a 60 percent annual surge in break-ins in some areas, will ask robbers questions about their typical targets, motives and disposal methods for stolen goods. Bernth Andersen conceded police are not sure of the projects success, but said Thursday well do anything we can to lower the number (of burglaries). The project is planned to last a few months. Pig prank reduxMONTPELIER, Vt. Female prison inmates are to blame for a prank that put the image of a pig in a decal on the doors of some Vermont state police cruisers. Department of Corrections Commissioner Andy Pallito told WCAX-TV female inmates at the prison work center in Windsor were responsible for altering the decal in 2009. But he said figuring out specifically who did it is impossible unless someone confesses. The pig in the 16-inch decal was first noticed by a state police trooper washing his car Feb. 1. One of the spots on a cow in the state crest was changed to the shape of a pig, a derogatory term for police. State police said they believe the pig decal has been added to about 30 cruisers in the past year.C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, F EBRUARY20, 2012 A7 777124 ITSTAXTIME!Theres Still Time Left To Place Your Ad Call563-5592 To place your Bingo ads, call 563-3231 HOMOSASSA LIONS BINGO Monday Nights 6:00 PM HOMOSASSA LIONS CLUB HOUSE Rt. 490 Al Becker 794-3184 Free Coffee & Tea Smoke Free Bldg. $ 10 Package $50 Payout Per Game 1st Monday Every Month at 6pm $20 Pkg.

O PINION Page A8 MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2012 World full of wondersPerhaps the major factor in personal development is not closing ones mind to the perceptions of reality that might seem unknown and/or strange to us. Life is a changing phenomenon, and in order to enjoy it fully and hasten life development means having an open mind. In 1926, when born, who would have guessed we would see and talk to a friend in Australia and all of this on a 4-by-6-inch piece of plastic? No one in their right mind then would have talked about the possibility of a man leaving Earth and ultimately walking on the moon and then returning to Florida alive. Or who would have guessed that an explosive instrument the size of a whisky keg could destroy a city of over a hundred thousand people? The sky was always blue and the sun and the moon and the stars were about all seen up there; now there appear to be hundreds of UFOs surveying the planet Earth at speeds of thousands of miles per hour, and appearing and disappearing at will. The Biography television channel consistently, apparently, shows something that appears to be people who, dead, inhabit former houses making all kinds of sounds and actually talking to relatives. They show tons (of) pictures of doors opening and shutting, windows rattling, furniture moving, and alleged pictures of shadows of individuals moving about. It all seems to suggest that there just might be a world within a world. William C.

To all those who attended our fundraiser and who helped our scholars reach for the stars, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We feel so fortunate to live in such caring community! Pat Lancaster program coordinator Take Stock in Children B ryan Stevenson is director of the Equal Justice Initiative, a Montgomery, Ala.-based organization he founded in 1989 to provide legal representation for the indigent and incarcerated. The EJI (www.eji.org) doesnt charge its clients but, Stevenson said, he will sometimes require them to read selected books. Last year, Stevenson sent two books to prisoner Mark Melvin, who is doing life for a murder he committed when he was 14. One was Mountains Beyond Mountains, about a doctors struggle to bring medical services to Haiti. The other was Slavery by Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II, Douglas A. Blackmons Pulitzer Prize-winning account of how the South instituted a form of de facto slavery by mass arresting black men on nonsense charges and selling them to plantations, turpentine farms and other places of back-breaking labor. Stevenson said the prison allowed Melvin to receive the first book, but banned the second. Prison officials, Stevenson said, felt it was too provocative, they didnt like the title, they didnt like the idea that the title conveyed. They didnt read the book, but they were concerned about it and thought that it would be too dangerous to have in the prisons. Stevenson filed suit. As the case wends its way through the courts, it speaks with eloquence to our complicated relationship with African-American history here in this 86th observance of what was once called Negro History Week. Stevenson said America struggles with denialism, i.e., a refusal to face its grim past of racial crimes and human rights violations. The issue is not Mark Melvin. Stevenson said the attorney for the state who declined to comment for this column has told him the prison is not worried about Melvin; he is not considered a disciplinary problem. The issue is not security. Since filing the suit, Stevenson said, he has heard from other prisoners who tell him years ago, there were a handful of Alabama prisons where the wardens would not let them watch Roots. No, the issue, it seems obvious, is a frightful, embarrassing history and the suppression thereof. Other countries that have tried to recover from severe human rights problems that have lasted for decades have always recognized that you have to commit yourself to truth and reconciliation: South Africa, Rwanda, Stevenson said. In the United States, we never did that. We had legal reforms that were imposed on some populations against their will and then we just carried on. The key words being against their will. Indeed, Stevenson felt its just a matter of time before the nation begins to minimize what segregation really was, like a black version of Holocaust denial. Thats already happening. In 2010, former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour claimed integration in his state was a very pleasant experience. Actually, integration in his state was marked by, among other atrocities, a firebombing, a fatal riot, the assassination of Medgar Evers and the murders of three voting rights workers. The only effective weapon against such lies is to learn the truth and tell it, shout it in the face of untruth, equivocation and denial. Bear witness. The good news, assuming you are not a prisoner in Alabama, is you need no ones permission to do so. Write to Leonard Pitts Jr. at 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132 or email@example.com.

HR directorSandra Frederick ............................ managing editor Curt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member LEVEL PLAYING FIELD Internet tax would be equitable O nce again, our state Legislature is debating a bill that would close the loophole that allows many Internet sales to be untaxed. Under state law, all Internet sales are subject to state sales tax. If the vendor does not charge the tax, individual purchasers are supposed to pay it. However, very few individuals voluntarily fill out tax forms and send sales taxes on their Internet purchases to the Department of Revenue. Legislation to collect all taxes on Internet sales has bounced around the Legislature from time to time since 2002. Generally, local businesses and chambers of commerce have supported collecting sales taxes on Internet purchases, while large online retailers have opposed the idea. When Internet businesses first began offering merchandise online, not requiring them to pay sales tax offered an incentive for this new form of marketing and may have been justified as a way of allowing a new form of marketing to become established. However, since then, major online marketers such as Amazon.com have grown to the point where they are a major player in retail markets, and as local merchants are quick to point out, they have an immediate 6 percent price advantage over local brick-andmortar businesses because they do not collect sales taxes. According to state estimates, the state loses almost a half billion dollars in sales taxes annually through untaxed Internet sales. The bill now before the Legislature Senate Bill 1514 would require any business with a physical presence such as a warehouse or distribution center in the state to pay state sales tax on purchases by Florida residents. While we question the wisdom of some of the amendments to the bill that would require sales tax holidays to offset revenues, we support the concept of the bill, nicknamed the e-fairness bill, because it would level the playing field between Internet retailers and local businesses that hire local workers, pay local taxes and support local communities. THE ISSUE: Internet sales tax bill in the Legislature.OUR OPINION: Sales tax should be fair to all merchants.

Or, fax to 352563-3280 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org LETTERS to the Editor Beware scammersA small, gray-bearded man rang my doorbell. Upon responding, he advised that I have mildew on my house, and he had pressure-washed it before to remove the mildew. He appeared nervous and just wanted to treat my house for mildew. I, in no uncertain terms, told him that he had never done any work for me, and that I have my own workers. At that point, he hurried back to the small gray car and entered the passenger side. I grabbed the camcorder and started shooting, but could not get the tag number. I have reason to believe that this is another one of the attempts to rip off the consumer. All consumers should be careful and either call the sheriff, or shoot pictures of any stranger in your neighborhood.Mobile alertsThere was a recent incident where someone was robbed outside (a business) and they did a reverse 911 to the residents in the area, alerting them to this emergency. I, for one, dont have a home phone. I have a cellphone and I know many people no longer have a landline, just a cellphone. Is there any way, can someone tell me how to log my cellphone number so I can also receive these emergency calls when an emergency happens in my area?Vets sacrificesThe story and photos that you had in the paper last week about Bull Halseys Typhoon, it just goes to show what horrors the Navy put in, and the Marines, in the South Pacific in World War II. People should know about that and know the great, great sacrifices that the World War II veterans made in the South Pacific and also in Europe, that they should be taken care of for their final days. The two people (who) were in that article are both 88 years old and you know what? Theres not very many years left for them, but what they are, lets try to make them great.Size matters Since this the second time Ive read a Sound Off about reducing speed limits to conserve fuel, I have to comment. It reminds me of the same fake statistics touted during the fake gas shortages of the s. A little car going 80 will use less fuel than a big car or truck going 55. The car design has a lot more to do with fuel conservation than speed. And where did the estimate of a billion barrels of oil saved by going slower come from? Also, 30 percent of auto fatalities attributed to speeding is a false number. Speed as a cause of accidents, even in auto racing, is rare. Losing control and running into things are the major causes of accidents.Dangerous dutyI think we should all thank the Italian Coast Guard men and women for all their effort in trying to rescue and find the bodies of the Italian liner. Its such a shame that happened. Thank you very much. THE CHRONICLEinvites you to call Sound Off with your opinions about any subject.

Santorum divisive Obviously, theres something in the air that only affects Republicans. Why else would three states vote for Rick Santorum for president on Feb. 2? Being a protagonist for the Catholic faith, Santorum feels he was sent by God to reestablish the spiritual moorings that our country has supposedly lost. When Santorum was in the Senate, an aide stated his boss was less a politician and more as a Catholic missionary. As senator, Santorum did not have a single proposal that would help middleclass Americans find goodpaying jobs. What proposals he has come up with helped the rich, and hurt the poor and middle class. Republicans serving in the House and Senate refer to Santorum as bright, intelligent and God-fearing. False. Anyone who opposes evolution and climate change must be feared. Even the Catholic Church believes in evolution today. Mr. Santorums attacks on gays in the military and gay marriage are nothing more than bigotry. He often speaks of family values, never giving the audience a definition of what this term means. The term family values was introduced to the public years ago by pastor Jerry Falwell. He, too, never gave the public an explanation of the term. We all know Santorum is against all abortions, even (pregnancies resulting from) incest or rape; yet we know he is in favor of state executions a hypocrite at best. In the realm of guns, going to war with Iran is high on his agenda, as well as the defense of Israel at all cost, right or wrong. One thing we dont need is another war. My view of the man: He is a mendacious, unctuous, dimwitted individual. L. M. Eastman Lecanto Let church decide Under Obamacare, the Obama administration recently issued an edict that all health insurance policies must provide women with birth control and anticonception pills at no charge, even acknowledging this goes against, in particular, the beliefs of the Catholic Church. This brings up several questions. Other than to buy the votes of single, independent women, why are these services to be provided free? Why are churches who may not believe in birth control and/or anticonception practices being forced to accept this? The Democrats are trying to spin this as an issue of protecting womens health. If this is truly an issue of womens health, then why are mammograms not provided free? Is breast cancer less of an issue of protecting womens health? If this is an issue of women who want to have intercourse without the risk of pregnancy, then why arent condoms provided free to men? If women want to have intercourse, why are we all forced to pay, through insurance premiums, so that they do not become pregnant? As to the issue of the Obama administration forcing the Catholic agencies to follow this edict, the administrations position is that the Catholic Church does not have to provide these coverages if it employs or serves only Catholics in its hospitals, schools and charities. This means only Catholics can be taught in its schools, only Catholics can be treated in its hospitals and only Catholics can receive aid through its charities. What about people of other religions who are presently served by these agencies? What happens to them? This is a clear violation of the Constitutions freedom of religion and a blatant attempt on the part of the Obama administration to force the Catholic Church, and all other churches or religions who may not endorse these coverages, to violate their beliefs and conform to Obamas edicts. The Catholic Churchs position, as I understand it and I am not a member of the Catholic Church, is that people are free to practice birth control but dont force it to violate its beliefs and force it to pay for it. Len Martin Pine Ridge Economic issues We have had a relationship of love with Citrus County for more than 50 years, and recent events are dictating the need to speak out on some local issues. We are the Nature Coast! Every citizen here loves our coastline, the wildlife and the amenities that our Nature Coast provides. We are in tough economic times, and it seems to me our BOCC has ignored the need to save as much money as possible.

Associated PressTEHRAN, Iran Iran has halted oil shipments to Britain and France, the Oil Ministry said Sunday, in an apparent pre-emptive blow against the European Union after the bloc imposed sanctions on Irans crucial fuel exports. The EU imposed tough sanctions against Iran last month, which included a freeze of the countrys central bank assets and an oil embargo set to begin in July. Irans Oil Minister Rostam Qassemi had warned earlier this month Tehran could cut off oil exports to hostile European nations. The 27nation EU accounts for about 18 percent of Irans oil exports. However, the Iranian action was not likely to have any significant direct impact on European supplies because Britain and France had already moved last year to sharply curtail oil purchases from Tehran to less than 3 percent of their daily needs. The EU sanctions, along with other punitive measures imposed by the U.S., are part of Western efforts to derail Irans disputed nuclear program, which the West fears is aimed at developing atomic weapons. Iran denies the charges, and said its program is for peaceful purposes. The spokesman for Irans Oil Ministry, Ali Reza Nikzad-Rahbar, said on the ministrys website Sunday crude oil exports to British and French companies have been halted. We have our own customers and have no problem to sell and export our crude oil to new customers, he said. Britains Foreign Office declined comment, and there was no immediate response from French officials. The semiofficial Mehr news agency said exports were suspended to the two countries Sunday. It also said the National Iranian Oil Company has sent letters to some European refineries with an ultimatum to either sign long-term contracts of two to five years or be cut off.

Associated PressYOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. A window of time just opened in Yosemite National Park when nature photographers wait, as if for an eclipse, until the moment when the sun and earth align to create a fleeting phenomenon. This marvel of celestial configuration happens in a flash at sunset in mid-February if the winter weather cooperates. On those days the setting sun illuminates one of the parks lesser-known waterfalls so precisely that it resembles molten lava as it flows over the sheer granite face of the imposing El Capitan. Every year growing numbers of photographers converge on the park, their necks craned toward the ephemeral Horsetail Fall, hoping the sky will be clear so they can duplicate the spectacle first recorded in color in 1973 by the late renowned outdoors photographer Galen Rowell. Horsetail is so uniquely situated that I dont know of any other waterfall on earth that gets that kind of light, said Michael Frye, who wrote the book The Photographers Guide to Yosemite. How many are perched on a high open cliff? Most are in an alcove or canyon and wont get the sun setting behind it. Yosemites special geography makes this fall distinctive, he said. Four decades ago, photographers had only to point and shoot to capture another famous Yosemite firefall a man-made cascade of embers pushed from a bonfire on summer nights from Glacier Point. But photographing Horsetail is a lesson in astronomy, physics and geometry as hopefuls consider the azimuth degrees and minutes of the earths orbit relative to the sun to determine the optimal day to experience it. They are looking for the lowest angle of light that will paint Horsetail the colors of an iridescent sunset as rays reflect off granite behind the water. It materializes in varying degrees of intensity for the same two weeks every year. If you hit it at just the right time, it turns this amazing color of gold or red-orange, said Frye, a photo instructor with the Ansel Adams Gallery in the park. Adams photographed the fall, but his iconic black and white images do not capture its fiery quality, and its unclear whether he ever noted it. To be successful in photographing the watery firefall, it takes luck and timing, and the cooperation of nature. Horsetail Fall drains a small area on the eastern summit of El Capitan and flows only in the winter and spring in years with adequate rain and snow, which is scarce this year. Experts say it doesnt take a lot of water for the fall to light up. Most important, the southwestern horizon must be clear, and February is the time of year when storm clouds often obscure the setting sun. When conditions come together, the scrawny Horsetail Fall is the shining star of a park famed for its other waterfalls raging Yosemite Fall and Bridalveil Fall. But Horsetail is the longest free-falling one, with a drop of 1,500 feet before it hits granite and spills another 500. Yosemite waterfall transforms every mid-February Saving Cars circle central Moscow in protestMOSCOW Hundreds of cars circled central Moscow during an opposition demonstration Sunday to demand Prime Minister Vladimir Putin allow free elections in Russia. As they traveled along the wide Garden Ring, which makes a nearly 10-mile loop around the Kremlin, the cars flew the white ribbons and balloons that have become a symbol of the peaceful antiPutin protest movement. One family held up their little white dog in an open, passengers side window. Sundays demonstration took place two weeks before the presidential election, which Putin is expected to win. Although none of his four challengers poses a serious threat, Putin does need to get a majority of the vote to avoid a runoff.

From wire reports Nation BRIEF World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A10 MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressBEIRUT Gunmen in Syria staged a guerrilla-style ambush that killed a senior state prosecutor and a judge Sunday in an attack, suggesting armed factions are growing bolder and more coordinated in their uprising against President Bashar Assads regime. The roadway slayings reported in an opposition-dominated northern region by the Syrian state news agency came a day after a deadly hit-and-run attack on a political figure in the heart of the pro-Assad city of Aleppo. The targeted killings have not reached Assads inner circle, but indicate a growing shift toward violent tactics by the opposition as it brings aboard more military defectors and seeks to tighten control over the small pieces of territory in its hands. Fears of a looming civil war have neighboring Jordan racing to finish a refugee camp near the Syrian border to handle a possible exodus of people fleeing for safety. Meanwhile, Egypt became the latest Arab nation to publicly snub Assad by ordering the withdrawal of its ambassador in Damascus. The Syrian government has offered some concessions, including proposing a referendum next week that could allow more political voices to challenge Assads Baath Party. But the opposition demands nothing short of Assads resignation. And the regime has not eased off its attacks on the opposition forces, which it describes as terrorists carrying out a foreign conspiracy to destabilize the country. In Homs in central Syria, government forces sent in reinforcements as they shelled the rebel-held Baba Amr district that has been under near constant barrage for nearly two weeks, said the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Xavier Alvarez was in good company when he stood up at a public meeting and called himself a wounded war veteran who had received the top military award, the Medal of Honor. Alvarez was lying about his medal, his wounds and his military service, but he wasnt the first man to invent war exploits. He was, however, one of the first people prosecuted under a 2006 federal law aimed at curbing false claims of military valor. Concerns the law improperly limits speech and turns people into criminals for things they say, rather than do, are at the heart of the Supreme Courts review of his case and the Stolen Valor Act. Veterans groups have come to the aid of the Obama administration, which calls the law a narrowly crafted effort to protect the system of military awards that was established during the Revolutionary war by Gen. George Washington. The high court will hear the case Wednesday, which is Washingtons 280th birthday. Theyre committing fraud. Theyre impersonating somebody else. They take on attributes of somebody else, attributes of a hero who served honorably, said Pam Sterner, whose college term paper calling for the law wound up in the hands of members of Congress. When you do that, impersonating someone else, thats fraud, not freedom of speech. Civil liberties groups, writers, publishers and news media outlets, including The Associated Press, have told the justices they worry the law, and especially the administrations defense of it, could lead to more attempts by government to regulate speech. High court examines lying about military honors Doug and Pam Sterner are photographed Feb. 8 in their home in Alexandria, Va.

ESPN employee fired for headlineBRISTOL, Conn. ESPN fired an employee responsible for an offensive headline about Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin. The headline Friday on ESPNs mobile website was used for a story about a New York loss in which Lin had nine turnovers. The headline was an idiom that contains a word that also can be used as a slur against Chinese. I dont think it was on purpose or whatever, but (at) the same time they have apologized. And so from my end I dont care anymore, Lin said after leading the Knicks to a 104-97 win over Dallas on Sunday. Have to learn to forgive, and I dont even think that was intentional. Or hopefully not. In a statement Sunday, ESPN apologized. An ESPNEWS anchor who used the same phrase was suspended for 30 days. Former Fiesta Bowl exec to plead guilty PHOENIX The former top executive of the Fiesta Bowl has reached a plea deal with Arizona prosecutors to settle allegations related to a political donations scandal. Arizona Attorney Generals Office spokeswoman Amy Rezzonico confirmed Sunday John Junker will appear in court on Tuesday, although she said she was barred from providing details before the hearing. A person with direct knowledge of the deal said Junker will plead guilty to a felony charge. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press. The Arizona Republic first reported the deal with Junker in Sundays editions. The newspaper quoted defense attorney Stephen Dichter as saying Junker has reached a deal with federal prosecutors. Others are expected to enter pleas to state charges related to the scandal at the top-tier bowl. COO Natalie Wisneski was indicted in November on federal charges of filing false Fiesta Bowl tax returns, conspiracy, and federal campaign finance violations. The charges stem from allegations she solicited campaign contributions from bowl employees for federal, state and local political candidates and arranged for the bowl to repay them, and failed to disclose the donations in the nonprofits tax returns. She has pleaded not guilty.From wire reports Associated PressLOS ANGELES Bill Haas wound up making the biggest putt of them all at Riviera.

Chisora and his coach Don Charles were detained at Munich airport on Sunday and taken in for questioning. Associated PressMUNICH British heavyweight Dereck Chisora was released Sunday after nearly seven hours of questioning by police following his brawl with former WBA champion David Haye at a postfight news conference. A black van carried the boxer and his coach, Don Charles, from police headquarters, speeding past assembled photographers. He still faces a charge of simple assault but he is allowed to return to England for now, police spokesman Gottfried Schlicht told The Associated Press. Chisora and fellow Londoner Haye came to blows after Chisoras defeat by unanimous decision to Vitali Klitschko in their WBC title fight. Charles also faces a charge of assault for his involvement in the melee. Schlicht said more serious charges were reduced when police were unable to apprehend Haye despite searching for the boxer at his hotel. Chisora and Charles were detained at Munich airport at 10:30 a.m. and taken for questioning to Munich police headquarters. Chisora was initially held on suspicion of assault, causing grievous bodily harm and of making a threat. Chisora was heard vowing to shoot Haye. I swear to God, David, I am going to shoot you. I am going to shoot you. I am going to physically shoot David Haye, Chisora was heard yelling as he claimed Haye hit him with a glass. Chisoras promoter Frank Warren called the brawl ugly, horrible and disgraceful but said it was not his boxer who threw the first punch.

Hes starting 2012 out front. Edwards, who lost the championship last season on a tie-breaker to Tony Stewart, won the pole for the season-opening Daytona 500, beating teammate Greg Biffle for the top starting spot during a windy Sunday qualifying session at Daytona International Speedway. Edwards turned a lap at 194.738 mph the fastest pole-winning speed since Jeff Gordons lap of 195.067 mph in 1999. Biffle was second at 194.087 to give Ford and Roush Fenway Racing a sweep of the front row. Its so neat to come down here and to be so fast and to really have fun qualifying here, Edwards said. These are the best race cars weve ever had at Daytona. Coming down here I didnt even consider the pole, so this is huge. Biffle was not as thrilled. Im a little disappointed, Biffle said. I hate the wind. I guess if youre out sailing, its good. It was singing down the back, but coming down the front I just got a big gust of wind coming off of (turn) four ... I knew I didnt have it. Edwards and Biffle were the only two drivers to lock down their starting positions in Daytonas unique qualifying format. The rest of the starting order for next Sundays race is set through Thursdays twin 150-mile qualifying races. But only four starting spots are up for grabs. NASCAR guarantees starting spots to the top 35 teams from last season, three spots go to the fastest drivers in time trials not already locked in and one spot goes to a previous NASCAR champion. The drivers who earned starting spots in qualifying were defending race winner Trevor Bayne, Tony Raines, David Stremme and former NASCAR champion Terry Labonte. Clint Bowyer, making his debut for Michael Waltrip Racing, was 22nd in qualifying but had his time thrown out when his car failed inspection. NASCAR said Bowyer will have to start last in Thursdays qualifying race, but thats the only penalty his No. 15 team will face. Scott Miller, vice president of competition for MWR, said he doesnt think starting in the back is too big of a blow for Bowyer. As far as the 150 goes, youre going to be to the front and to the back of that thing, Miller said. Our competitiveness and our ability to go win the 150 hasnt changed any.

Paul Gaustad, Drew Stafford and Tyler Ennis also scored for Buffalo (25-27-7), which improved to 1-3-1 in its past five, and moved out of a tie with Carolina for last place in the Eastern Conference. Deryk Engelland and Jordan Staal scored for the Penguins, who dropped to 4-2-1 in their past seven and failed to build off a 6-4 win at Philadelphia a day earlier.Predators 3, Stars 2DALLAS Shea Weber scored on a power play with less than a second remaining in the first period, Pekka Rinne stopped 22 shots, and the Nashville Predators beat the Dallas 3-2 on Sunday night. Weber put the Predators ahead to stay 2-1 with his 12th goal of the season, popping a loose puck into an open net with 0.2 seconds left in the first. Gabriel Bourque and Colin Wilson added even-strength goals for Nashville, 3-3-2 in its last eight after a five-game winning streak. Rangers 3, Blue Jackets 2 (OT) NEW YORK Derek Stepan scored 22 seconds into overtime, and the New York Rangers overcame a late tying goal by Columbus and one disallowed on their side in a 3-2 victory over the Blue Jackets on Sunday night. Stepan took a pass from Michael Del Zotto, who faked a shot and scored into a wideopen left side of the net. Columbus captain Rick Nash, the subject of trade rumors including those involving the Rangers got the Blue Jackets even at 2 with 1:33 left in regulation. That prompted chants of We dont want you from the disappointed Madison Square Garden crowd. Red Wings win record 23rd straight at home addition to the Orlando starting lineup after Jason Richardson was scratched with chest pain, scored 17 points. Dwight Howard finished with 12 points and 15 rebounds and Glen Davis back in the Magic lineup after a one-game absence to attend his fathers funeral scored 12. Quentin Richardson added 10 for Orlando, which made 11 shots from 3-point range. The Magic had been 12-1 when connecting on at least that many this season. Clinton stayed until the end, even posing for a quick photo with game officials Bill Kennedy, Mark Lindsay and Rodney Mott shortly after the final buzzer. The six-game winning streak is a season best for Miami. Orlando lost for just the third time in its last 11 games. Fueled by Wade scoring 12 points in the first seven minutes, Miami ran out to a 22-11 lead, the second straight game where the Magic faced a double-digit deficit in the opening quarter. Just as they did two days earlier against Milwaukee, Orlando rallied. The Magic scored the next 13 points, 3pointers from Redick and Quentin Richardson getting things started. A 3-pointer from Ryan Anderson with 8:57 left in the half gave Orlando what was then its biggest lead at 27-24. Good thing the Magic had that run. The rest of the half was downright abysmal. Orlando went more than seven minutes without a point, and wound up missing 11 straight shots and 14 of 15 in one stretch. Howard only had six shots in the first half, the Magic finished with just 12 points in the second quarter, and Miami took a 43-31 lead into intermission. The Magic seemed to be in position to make a run in the third quarter. Davis steal and layup with 1:44 left got Orlando within nine. But the Heat had a quick and decisive answer. Mario Chalmers made two free throws, Shane Battier hit a 3-pointer Miamis third attempted 3 on that possession and Udonis Haslem hit a jumper from the right corner with 1.8 seconds left to send Miami into the fourth with a 70-54 edge.

The only time Kenny Perry felt as if he was grinding while holding a big lead Sunday was on the final hole in the ACE Group Classic. That was when his tee shot went way left, and he was in jeopardy of falling below 20 under. Never mind that he had six shots to play with. I really wanted that putt, said Perry, who won his second Champions Tour title. I really wanted to shoot 20 under. I didnt want to fall back to 19 like I did at Colonial one year. I had a seven-stroke lead coming in and I doubled and I went from 21 to 19. I said, I aint doing that this week. So, I was able to get that putt in. Ecstatic. Its a great win for me. After opening with rounds of 64 and 62 to break the tours 36-hole record at 18-under 126, Perry closed with a 2under 70 on The TwinEagles Clubs Talon Course to beat 2011 winner Bernard Langer by five strokes. Perry, a 14-time winner on the PGA Tour, birdied three of his first eight holes, and no one ever got closer than four shots after that. He played very, very well, said Tom Lehman, paired with Perry in the final round. Two-underpar today is a very good score. He was pretty much error-free throughout the day. It was tough to get any pressure on him. Langer eagled No. 17 for the third straight day in his 70. It was a good week, Langer said. I played well, its just that Perry ran off with it. He put up a fantastic score (Saturday) and played well again. After two calm days resulted in low scores, the wind blew 20 mph with gusts near 30 mph Sunday. Lehman shot a 72 to match Bill Glasson (68) and Mike Goodes (69) at 14 under. Lehman was in second for most of the day, but bogeyed No. 12 and bogeyed the par-5 17th after hitting a pitch shot in the water. First-round leader Larry Mize was tied for second on the last hole, but put two balls in the water and finished with a 75 to drop to seventh at 12 under. Much tougher day with the wind, Mize said. We had two ideal days to play and today was a tough day. Perry tied Allen Doyles 1999 tournament mark for the largest margin of victory. Perry had 24 birdies, two short of the tour record for a 54-hole event. The bogey on the final hole dropped Perry into a tie with Langer for the tournament scoring record that Langer set last year at The Quarry. Perry earned $240,000. He won the SAS Championship in October a day after his sister died of breast cancer, two years to the day Perrys mother died from cancer. Perry won twice in Naples previously teaming with John Huston in 2005 and Scott Hoch in 2008 at the Franklin Templeton Shootout, an unofficial PGA Tour event. Associated PressCHONBURI, Thailand Yani Tseng watched Ai Miyazatos approach on the 18th hole of the LPGA Thailand and knew she had to come up with an equally impressive shot to avoid a possible playoff. Tseng met the challenge with a shot fitting her No. 1 ranking, controlling the spin perfectly to set up a tap-in putt. It was an incredible shot. I think its the shot of the week, Tseng said Sunday. Especially, I saw that Ai hit it so close and I knew she was going to make that putt. So, I tell myself, I need to get this close. The 23-year-old Taiwanese star successfully defended her title for her 13th LPGA Tour victory, matching Miyazato with birdies on the final two holes to hold off her Japanese friend by a stroke. It was tough, Tseng said about her approach on the par-5 18th. I had 104 to the pin and a little uphill. I know my ball is going to spin a lot, so I just tried to keep it low and not spin too much. ... I was very proud of myself for hitting that shot into 18 and making birdie to win. Tseng closed with a 6under 66 to finish at 19under 269 on the Pattaya Old Course at Siam Country Club. She opened with a 73, then shot consecutive 65s to enter the final round a shot behind Miyazato. Last year, Tseng won the event for the first of her seven 2011 LPGA Tour victories, including major victories in the LPGA Championship and Womens British Open. The five-time major champion finished the year with 12 worldwide victories. She has 33 career worldwide professional victories. I feel much more pressure coming into this year, Tseng said. Last year, when I started, I was nothing. I was just in the top five in the world, but I dont have 12 wins or world No. 1 title. After last year, I have world No. 1 and I had 12 wins and that pressure keep going on and on. Miyazato finished with a 67. Of course, Yani is No. 1, so I knew it wouldnt be easy today, Miyazato said. I kind of expected her to play that way. South Koreas Jiyai Shin, tied for the lead with Tseng after a birdie of her own on the par-4 17th, had a 67 to finish two strokes back. Tseng eagled the par-5 opening hole and Miyazato had a birdie, leaving them tied at 15 under. Tseng took the lead with a birdie on the par-4 third, and added birdies on the par-4 sixth and par-5 seventh. At the turn, she had a three-stroke lead over Shin and fourshot advantage over Miyazato. Shin, playing a group ahead of Tseng and Miyazato, birdied the par-4 10th to pull within two and gained another stroke when Tseng bogeyed the hole. Tseng pushed her lead to two with a birdie on the par3 12th, but bogeyed the par4 13th. Miyazato birdied the 10th and pulled within one of Tseng with a birdie on the par-4 15th, then matched Tseng with a par on 16 and the birdies on 17 and 18. Associated Press Yani Tseng of Taiwan, center, is congratulated by friends Sunday after winning the LPGA Thailand championship in Pattaya, Chonburi province, southeastern Thailand. Top-ranked Tseng wins LPGA Thailand Kenny Perry wins ACE Group Classic by five strokes heard down Sunset Boulevard. Mickelson bumped fists with Bradley and told his protege, Join me. That he did. Bradleys birdie putt from just outside 12 feet took one last, slow turn at the cup and disappeared, setting off another enormous cheer. No one had to tell Haas what was happening. They started the playoff on the 18th, and Bradley had the best look at birdie with a 15-footer from just off the back of the green that touched the right side of the cup. It was decided on the 312yard 10th hole, regardedas the best short par 4 in America, certainly among the most interesting holes in all of golf. It can be reached with a drive, but its all about position and none were in a particularly good spot. Haas went long into thick rough, with enough of the back bunker in his way that he smartly played out to the right and left himself a long birdie putt that at least would assure him par. Mickelson and Bradley each came up short, a horrible angle. Mickelsons flop shot landed near the hole and rolled into the back bunker. Bradley was in the bunker, and did well to blast out to 15 feet, just through the green. Haas ended the suspense with his putt. Bradley, who closed with a 71, missed his birdie putt after Mickelson, who also had a 71, failed to hole his bunker shot. I didnt think he was going to make that one, Bradley said. I should have known, though, because hes a great putter and a great player. Haas, the FedEx Cup champion, captured his fourth career PGA Tour title and moved to No. 12 in the world. Mickelson, who rallied from six shots behind with a 64 to win last week at Pebble Beach, was trying to become the first player since Tiger Woods in August 2009 to win back-to-back on the PGA Tour. Mickelson missed three straight putts from just inside 10 feet on the back nine two for par, one for birdie but atoned for it with his birdie on the 18th, the longest putt he made all day. Bradley also missed a pair of putts from inside 10 feet down the stretch until coming up big on the 18th. Mickelson seized control early with the best shot he hit all week. With pin tucked in the back right corner on a new green at the fifth hole a deep swale behind it and to the right Mickelson hooked a 9-iron that started out toward the gallery and wound up 4 feet away for birdie. That put him at 9 under, two shots clear of Haas, who had birdied the par-3 sixth two groups ahead. Jonathan Byrd, who had been tied for the lead, made double bogey on No. 5 with a hooked tee shot into the hay. All it took was a pair of mistakes by Mickelson to turn the back nine into a shootout, with a half-dozen players in the mix. He missed the dual fairway on the eighth and couldnt reach the green, chipped 6 feet by the hole and missed the par putt. Then, he failed to clear the fairway bunker on No. 9 and had no chance of getting home. His wedge was 20 feet short, leading to another bogey. HAAS Continued from Page B1 Associated PressBOGOTA, Colombia Skip Kendall holed a 25-foot birdie putt on the final hole Sunday for an even-par 71 and a one-stroke victory in the Nationwide Tours season-opening Colombia Championship. At 47 years, 5 months, 10 days, Kendall became the fourth-oldest winner in Nationwide history. He finished at 10-under 274 at the Country Club of Bogota and earned $108,000 for his third career Nationwide title. Andres Gonzales and Andrew Svoboda tied for second. Gonzales closed with a 68, and Svoboda had a 72. It was one of those putts that you could get a good line on and I had a really good feeling over it, Kendall said. Fortunately, I hit a good putt and to see it tracking toward the middle of the hole was pretty special. In a way, Im glad I went first and made the putt. Kendall wins Nationwide Tour opener Almagro beats Volandri to win third Brazil OpenSAO PAULO Nicolas Almagro of Spain defeated Filippo Volandri of Italy 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 to retain his Brazil Open title Sunday. It was his third Brazil title, making him the most successful player at the ATP Tour event. Almagro broke Volandri late in the third set to clinch victory at Ibirapuera sporting complex in Sao Paulo. Spains Lara Arruabarrena-Vecino wins Bogota title BOGOTA, Colombia Lara Arruabarrena-Vecino of Spain won her first WTA title, defeating Alexandra Panova of Russia 62, 7-5 on Sunday in the final of the Copa BBVA Colsanitas. Arruabarrena-Vecino becomes the latest in a long line of Spanish players to dominate the clay-court tournament. The event was bound to produce an unexpected winner after all eight seeded players were knocked out in the first two rounds, some bothered by the altitude of 8,600 feet in the Colombian capital. The 19-year-old Spaniard said she had jitters at the end. I was a little nervous closing it out, but that is normal, she said. Raonic tops Istomin to repeat as SAP Open champion SAN JOSE, Calif. Milos Raonic captured a second straight SAP Open championship Sunday, rolling past Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan 7-6 (3), 6-2 behind a powerful serve nobody in San Jose could solve. Raonic ripped only seven aces in the final but took control of points from the start, turning the tournament into a serving exhibition. The 6-foot-5 Canadian has dropped only two service games in two years in San Jose. After hip surgery following a slip on Wimbledons grass last year stalled his season, Raonic is rising rapidly again. The 21year-old began the tournament ranked 32nd and will head to Memphis next week as one of the favorites. Federer beats Del Potro to win ABN AmroROTTERDAM, Netherlands Roger Federer defeated Juan Martin del Potro 6-1, 6-4 Sunday to win the ABN Amro World Tennis for his first title of the year. The top-seeded Federer jumped to a 5-0 lead in the first set, with Del Potro making uncharacteristic errors. Del Potro, who beat Federer in the 2009 U.S. Open final, took a 2-1 lead in the second set before Federer won five of the next seven games to close the match. The Swiss star was making his first appearance in Rotterdam since winning the 2005 title. Del Potro, seeded third, was playing in the tournament for the first time. Federer took a 4-2 lead before serving out the match to win his 71st career title. He saved all seven break points he faced and broke Del Potro three times. From wire reports Tennis BRIEFS Associated PressDOHA, Qatar Topranked Victoria Azarenka of Belarus shook off a lingering ankle injury to win the Qatar Open on Sunday, routing Sam Stosur of Australia 6-1, 6-2. Azarenka earned her 17th straight victory and first title since replacing Caroline Wozniacki atop the rankings after winning the Australian Open. It was her third title overall in 2012. Azarenka showed no ill effects after twisting her left ankle in the semifinal against Agnieszka Radwanska on Saturday. She broke the fifth-ranked Stosur twice to lead 4-1 in the first set, making a brief trip to the net to clinch it with a backhand volley. Azarenka cruised to victory after winning the first three games of the second set. Its amazing. I cant believe I could play that kind of tennis today, Azarenka said. I knew I wouldnt be 100 percent, so I had to change and adjust. I was just surprised today that everything was going in. Fearful of further aggravating her ankle injury, Azarenka said she tried to keep the rallies short and took advantage of the windy conditions. The ankle was wrapped during the match and Azarenka said it should be fine after a few days of rest. I was trying to be really aggressive and not to let her command it, because thats what she likes to do, Azarenka said. She has a huge serve, and the first shot, thats what she puts the opponent on the run, and you run like so far behind the baseline. So I tried to take that away from her. Azarenka kept Stosurs potent kick serve in check with her return game, with the Australian winning only 50 percent of first-serve points and 48 percent on the second. Azarenka also displayed a range of shots and ran down most balls, and Stosur finished with 25 unforced errors to only eight for the Belarusian. Azarenka will play at the Dubai Championships next week in Doha, the place where she lost in the first round last year a defeat she said briefly led her to consider quitting tennis. After a brief trip home and counseling from her mother and grandmother, she return energized and with a more mature attitude. That resulted in her having the best season of her career, winning 55 of 72 matches to finish the year at No. 3.

For the winning numbers, please see Page B5 It was an embarrassment for British boxing, Warren told Sky Sports News. I would say they were total idiots. Chisora taunted Haye about losing the WBA belt to Klitschkos younger brother Wladimir last July, leading to a heated exchange before Chisora knocked a bottle out of Hayes hand and they came to blows. Haye also fought with members of Chisoras entourage, and his coach, Adam Booth, was bleeding from a cut on his head. Camera equipment went flying and reporters fled before security eventually managed to separate the men and police arrived at the scene. Youve really lost it this time, Chisora told Haye. The 40-year-old Klitschko beat Chisora in a bruising bout in which the Ukrainian said he fought from the fourth round with only his right fist after injuring his left shoulder. Klitschko was examined in a Munich hospital on Sunday and later reported a partially torn ligament in his left shoulder. I think we all heard excuses about a broken toe, Chisora said before the brawl, referring to Hayes claim after his defeat to Wladimir Klitschko in Germany last July. Chisora found little support from the sellout crowd of 12,500 after slapping Vitali Klitschkos face at the weigh-in Friday. The ill feelings continued when he spit water in Wladimirs face as his brothers record was being called out before their bout. I wanted to knock him out, to be honest, Vitali Klitschko said. Such a cheek. Wladimir acted as a buffer as Chisora kept goading them. Vitali was clearly incensed, but it took some time before he could assert control in the ring against the Britons aggressive approach. His greater reach and experience made the difference. The judges scored it 118-110, 118-110 and 119-111. The 28-year-old Chisora said he wanted a rematch, or a bout with Wladimir, who is now the super WBA champion and holds the IBF and minor WBO and IBO belts. The younger Klitschko is to fight next against Jean-Marc Mormeck of France on March 3 in Duesseldorf, Germany. But the British fighter was not optimistic about a rematch. He wont fight me again. I dont blame you. I wouldnt fight me, either, he said. Klitschko improved his record to 44-2 (40 KOs) after what was perhaps the toughest bout hes had to endure since losing on a technical knockout to Lennox Lewis in 2003. The Zimbabwe-born Chisora dropped to 15-3 (9 KOs) after his third defeat in his last four fights, but he had the fans in Munichs Olympiahalle worried as Klitschko appeared to tire from his relentless attacks. Klitschko eventually took control in the ninth round, catching Chisora with a huge right and seemingly picking his punches at will. Chisora was barely hanging on in the 10th. He tried it all, but apart from a few grazes I didnt get anything more, Klitschko said. BRAWLContinued from Page B1 Associated Press New York Yankees batting helmets are pictured Thursday during practices before the official start of baseball spring training in Tampa, Fla. Associated Press Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine looks on Sunday as pitchers and catchers officially report to spring training in Fort Myers, Fla. Associated PressTAMPA, Fla. CC Sabathias weight is down, and the New York Yankees are hoping a few lost pounds might turn into a few more victories. The five-time All-Star said Sunday hes shed 10 to 15 pounds and reported to spring training weighing about 290 the same as a year ago when he pitched brilliantly early in the season but not nearly as effective down the stretch, when he appeared to be much heavier. After winning 13 of his first 17 decisions, Sabathia finished 19-8 overall with a 3.00 ERA. The Yankees rewarded him with a contract extension that added $30 million and one season to an existing contract that now will pay him $122 million over the next five years. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman later arranged a meeting with Sabathia to discuss the importance of the 31-year-old lefty watching his weight as he gets older. When I was dealing with his contract, the weight stuff didnt come up. We wanted CC. We needed CC. We love CC, said Cashman, who bolstered the Yankees starting rotation this winter by trading for young right-hander Michael Pineda and signing former Los Angeles Dodgers righty Hiroki Kuroda to a $10 million, one-year free agent contract. The GM said Sabathia is one of the hardest workers on the team and that the conversation about the pitchers weight was not initiated because of any concerns about how he takes care of himself. CCs never let us down. Hes the type of person thats fully committed, Cashman said. So the only hard part really is to have these conversations. The easy part is watching him follow through. The general manager stressed the discussion was more about trying to maintain whats helped Sabathia perform at a high level in the past than trying to force Sabathia to lose weight. Hes obviously a big man. Hes pitched with weight his whole career, Cashman said, adding he doesnt believe in placing weight clauses in contracts because they can be counterproductive. Standing in his front of his locker at the Yankees spring training complex, where pitchers and catchers hold their first workout on Monday, Sabathia acknowledged he didnt pitch well late in the season but that his weight wasnt a factor. Its just one of those things, he said. I wish I could pitch lights-out every single time. Pineda and Kuroda are joining a rotation that includes Ivan Nova, Phil Hughes and Freddy Garcia, in addition to Sabathia, who is excited about what at least for now appears to be a surplus of starting pitchers. Its a good problem to have. Any time you can add guys like Michael and Kuroda it definitely helps. It should be a good battle, Sabathia said. Its a win-win situation for us either way. Yankees ace reports to camp sans some CCs Associated pressFORT MYERS, Fla. With a temper that can run hotter than one of his overpowering fastballs, Josh Beckett has never hesitated to let it be known when someone has piqued his anger. The irascible Red Sox ace now appears to be mad at himself, saying he had lapses in judgment last season during Bostons historic September collapse. Beckett held himself accountable for his struggles on the field and his actions in the clubhouse on Sunday as pitchers and catchers reported to spring training, while still managing to keep things on his own terms. Im not saying we didnt make mistakes because we did make mistakes in the clubhouse, Beckett said. The biggest mistake I made was not pitching well against Baltimore. I was prepared to pitch every time I went out there. I just didnt execute pitches when I needed to. The right-hander went 13-7 with a 2.89 ERA last year, but like the rest of the Red Sox, a sparkling first five months of the season were spoiled by a disastrous finish. He gave up 12 earned runs in his last two starts and the Red Sox went 7-20 in September to fall out of their prime position for the AL wild card. Missing the playoffs was only the beginning. The Boston Globe then reported that some of the starting pitchers, including Beckett, Jon Lester and John Lackey, spent their off days drinking beer and eating fried chicken in the clubhouse rather than supporting their team from the dugout, painting a picture of a divided team in disarray. Im upset with myself for the lapses in judgment, Beckett said. Theres also some ill feelings toward some people. He declined to specify who he was talking about, but the implication was he was upset with the anonymous sources who broke the code by speakingabout what happens in the privacy of the clubhouse. The fallout from the collapse, and the stories of clubhouse shenanigans, was immediate. Theo Epstein, the architect of two World Series-winning teams, left for the Chicago Cubs. Manager Terry Francona did not return after it became clear he lost his grip on the clubhouse, and several changes were made to the training staff. So much is new for the Red Sox this spring, and thats probably a good thing as they look to put last years epic failure behind them. They have a new GM in Ben Cherington, a new manager in Bobby Valentine and a shiny new spring training facility, JetBlue Park, complete with a replica of the Green Monster in left field. Valentine is looking to Beckett and Lester to fill the leadership void left by the departures of pillars Tim Wakefield and Jason Varitek. Whether or not a team wins a championship or comes in last, theres always concern how the attitude will develop in a new year, Valentine said. Beckett, Lester contrite as new era begins for Red Sox
Associated Press Rachel McAdams, left, and Channing Tatum portray a husband and wife in The Vow. Elizabeth Smart married in Hawaii SALT LAKE CITY Elizabeth Smart married her fiance Saturday at a Mormon temple in Hawaii, several months ahead of scheduled plans for the nuptials after news of her engagement last month drew widespread media attention. A family spokesman said the Utah woman who was kidnapped at knifepoint at age 14 and held captive for nine months married Matthew Gilmour on Oahus North Shore. Elizabeths desire was for what most women want to celebrate her nuptials in a private wedding with family and close friends, family spokesman Chris Thomas said in a statement. She decided, about a week ago, the best way to avoid significant distraction was to change her wedding plans and to get married in an unscheduled ceremony outside of Utah. The 24-year-old Smart is a senior at Brigham Young University. She met Gilmour, of Aberdeen, Scotland, while doing Mormon missionary work in Paris. The couple wed at the Laie Hawaii Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in front of a small group of family members, Thomas said. The group then celebrated at a private reception and luau.

D AVIDG ERMAIN AP Movie WriterLOS ANGELES The Presidents Day weekend box office was too close to call as the action tale Safe House and the love story The Vow competed for the No. 1 spot. Based on Sundays studio estimates, Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds Safe House had a slim lead with $24 million from Friday to Sunday. That put it a fraction ahead of Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatums The Vow with $23.6 million. The winner wont be known for certain until Tuesday, when studios will report final numbers for the long holiday weekend. Final numbers often vary from weekend projections, which include estimates for the size of Sundays audiences. No matter which one finishes on top, the movie business remains unusually brisk for winter, typically a slow season at theaters. The business uptick comes after Hollywood lumbered through a humdrum holiday season at the end of last year, when audiences were apathetic about most new releases. I still think people dont want to stay home, and if you give them good choices, you get them out, said Nikki Rocco, head of distribution for Universal Pictures, which released Safe House. The top-five movies were bunched up tightly, with Nicolas Cages sequel Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance opening a close No. 3 with $22 million. Dwayne Johnsons family action tale Journey 2: The Mysterious Island was No. 4 with $20.1 million. Reese Witherspoons love-triangle comedy This Means War debuted at No. 5 with $17.6 million. Starring Washington as a CIA traitor on the run, Safe House raised its domestic total to $78.2 million. Sony Screen Gems The Vow, which features McAdams as an amnesiac car-accident victim becoming reacquainted with her husband (Tatum), lifted its total to $85.5 million. While Safe House and The Vow held up well, Sonys Ghost Rider follow-up came in below industry expectations, doing a bit less than half the $45 million the first one pulled in with its 2007 debut. In Spirit of Vengeance, Cage reprises his Marvel Comics role as Satans bounty hunter, this time trying to save a child from the devil. Released by Warner Bros., Journey 2 is a modern take on Jules Vernes The Mysterious Island. It padded its total to $53.2 million. In 20th Century Foxs This Means War, Witherspoon plays a woman who captures the hearts of two CIA agents (Chris Pine and Tom Hardy), the spy guys going from best pals to rivals as they pursue her. Disneys English-language version of the Japanese animated hit The Secret World of Arrietty opened in narrower release and came in at No. 9 with $6.4 million. Based on Mary Nortons childrens novel The Borrowers, about tiny people living beneath the floorboards of a house, the film features a voice cast that includes Carol Burnett, Amy Poehler and Will Arnett. The weekends overall domestic revenues totaled $160 million, up 10.7 percent from the same weekend last year, when Unknown led with a $21.9 million debut, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com. Elizabeth Smarh Stephen Colbert Associated PressWESTFIELD, N.J. Whitney Houston was laid to rest Sunday at a brief private ceremony in New Jersey, the end of a weekend that saw the pop stars family and friends gather at a star-studded funeral to mourn her loss while celebrating her career. Fans and onlookers gathered in several places along the route the motorcade took from the Newark funeral home to the cemetery about 20 miles away in Westfield, where Houston was buried next to her father, who died in 2003. The 48-year-old singer died Feb. 11 in California, hours before she was to attend a pre-Grammy Awards party. No cause of death has been determined. On Saturday, she was mourned at an invitationonly funeral at the church in Newark where she sang in the choir as a child. She was remembered by the biggest names in the music: Stevie Wonder and Alicia Keys sang, and industry mogul Clive Davis was among those who spoke, as was Kevin Costner, Houstons costar in The Bodyguard. The funeral was closed to fans, who were not allowed within blocks of the church. Still, many came to Newark to take part in what ways they could, some from as far as Miami and Washington, D.C. Fans gathered again near the funeral home Sunday morning, and some even slowly ran alongside the hearse as it began the journey to Houstons gravesite. Several yelled out We love you, Whitney as the hearse, which had a black and white headshot of the star in a window, slowly drove away. Barbara Davis, 53, of Newark, said she had been waiting outside the funeral home since 8:30 a.m., hoping to get a glimpse of Houstons final trip. To be here at her homegoing is an honor and a blessing, Davis told The Star-Ledger of Newark. Also among the crowd was Newark resident Eva Aquino and her two granddaughters, ages 10 and 13. All three stood on a street corner as the hearse passed by, and they used cellphones to snap photos of the procession. Whitney Houston laid to rest in N.J.

B6 M ONDAY, F EBRUARY20, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Sir Ralph Richardson, an English actor who died in 1983, said, Acting is the ability to dream on cue. If an actor forgets his next line, a prompter cues him. It is a signal to the actor to help him proceed. At the bridge table we also have cues. A cue-bid is not intended as natural and is made in a suit bid by an opponent. There are several different cue-bids that send various messages. The one that inexperienced players forget the most often occurs in todays deal. West opens one club, North makes a takeout double, and East passes. What should South do? A simple suit advance by an unpassed hand shows zero to 8 points. A jump advance indicates 9 to 11 points. With 12-plus points, the doublers partner cue-bids the openers suit. It is totally artificial, just prompting partner that he is facing a surprisingly strong hand. (If you are a passed hand, lower each of those ranges by two points.) Over Souths two-club cue-bid, North bids two hearts, South rebids two spades (forcing), and North raises to four spades. West leads the heart ace, under which East signals with his nine, starting a high-low (echo) with a doubleton. West cashes the heart king and continues with the heart jack. East ruffs away dummys queen, then shifts to a club. How should South play from there? Given the bidding, the club finesse is doomed, but the diamond finesse is sure to win. South should win with his club ace, draw trumps, and run the diamond jack. He then plays a diamond to dummys queen and discards his club loser on the diamond ace.

My youngest, Carrie, has a 14-year-old daughter who has been seeing a boy for a year. The other day, we were visiting Carrie, and my granddaughter and her boyfriend got very cozy at the dining room table while we were eating dinner. They started kissing and making out in front of the entire family. Carrie didnt say a word.I think this is terrible. Carrie is not the easiest person to approach about it, however. If I say anything to her, I doubt shell respond well. Any suggestions? Grandmother in Boston Dear Boston: Carrie may have reasons for ignoring such inappropriate behavior. Perhaps this teenage granddaughter already has plenty of issues with her mother, and Carrie has decided to ignore as much as she can. If you spend time alone with your granddaughter (and we recommend it), you can discuss these things directly and calmly with her. Otherwise, it would be a good idea to stay out of it. Dear Annie: My dentist performed a root canal on the wrong tooth. Because of his mistake, I had to go through two root canals and two crown preps. He didnt charge me for the one he did in error, but I did get a bill for more than $2,000 for the other. I feel violated. Crowns do not last as long as natural teeth, so Ive lost a perfectly good piece of my anatomy. The dentist now says I eventually would have needed a root canal there anyway, but thats not true. I have X-rays from another dentist that show nothing wrong with that tooth.I know I could sue him for malpractice, but I dont want the stress of going to court. And the dentist told me if I sue and dont prove my case, he would countersue with a defamation claim. Should I report him to the dental board? Should I inform my family, since I have recommended this dentist in the past? A Lakes Region Dear Region: Telling your family is your choice. Mistakes can happen in any profession. However, this dentist should have apologized profusely instead of becoming defensive and threatening you with a countersuit. We recommend you call your state dental society about resolving this conflict. If that doesnt help, you can consult an attorney and find out whether its worth pursuing a financial solution. Dear Annie: This is for Desperate To Help, who is concerned about a 54-year-old friend who has a great sense of humor and a good heart and is morbidly obese. Dear Desperate: Do you enjoy the company of people who are constantly criticizing your choices? Enjoy your friend for who he is, and stop trying to change him. If you invite him for a walk, walk at his pace and let him choose the distance. Talk about the scenery and the weather. Share a joke. Do not mention anything about health, or he will know the only reason youre walking with him is to deliver yet another lecture on what an ugly piece of blubber you think he is. If you invite him for a meal, make it what you usually eat rather than a weight-loss special. Talk about an interest you share. Does he enjoy watching movies? Watch one with him and discuss it. Maybe you think he should be out jogging instead, but thats not your business. Forget about trying to make him lose weight. Try instead to make yourself a better companion. Right now, you are being a pest. Give him respect and trust by accepting that his habits are his own decision. S. Dear S.: While we agree that you cannot force someone else to lose weight, you are being awfully hard on Desperate, who is truly worried about the health of a dear friend and doesnt want him to die young.
