Apparently she unintentionally and unknowingly watered her lawn at her Sugarmill Woods home on the wrong day due to a sprinkling system timer error. That mistake comes with a $100 fine for the first offense, a $250 fine for the second offense and a $500 fine for the third offense. As of Jan. 2, the department stopped handing out irrigation violation warnings.

A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER It is the well-appointed and well-hidden municipal gem of the manatee city. Locals use it to swim and laze around during hot summer days and boaters covet the way it cozies up to Kings Bay. But time and use has caught up with Hunters Spring Park and the city wants to rework it and make it shine. It is unusual to have two waterfront parks, and we really want Hunter Springs and Kings Bay Park to anchor our overall plan for the downtown area, Andy Houston, the city manager said. And, Tuesday evening, during a workshop about how to redo the park, more than two dozen people showed up to offer suggestions. Glenn Herbert and Frank Bellomo of Bellomo and Herbert, a landscape architectural firm out of Orlando, who are also charged with coming up with a conceptual plan for the park, led the discussions. Herbert told the audience they decided to come to residents first and ask for input before embarking planning for the 2.1-acre property at 104 N.E. 1st Ave. Herbert proceeded to show aerial slides of the decades-old park and its time-worn amenities, going back to the 1950s. Herbert said he heard about challenges regarding access to the water from the little beach area and safe coexistence between swimmers and boaters. He also pointed to the possibility of expansion of the property if the city desires, by purchasing vacant land near the park. He noted the restrooms are more than likely not up to current standards. And, Herbert thought it was a little puzzling that the main parking lot for the park is smack in the middle of the property. Usually parking areas are kept to the perimeters, he added. After sharing his impressions, the partners let the audience form groups and come up with suggestions about where they would locate facilities. All the groups wanted the parking lot moved to the side of the property and better configuration that will ensure a reasonable separation between the activities of swimmers and boaters, including paddlers. Community members offer suggestions at workshop about 21-acre Hunters Spring property in Crystal River IRRIGATION VIOLATIONS OCTOBER 2011 THROUGH JANUARY 2012 County better prepared for disaster after training C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff Writer Citrus County just became a safer place to live if a disaster happens. Last week, 67 people from county government and other agencies completed a training session at the National Emergency Training Center Emergency Management Institute in Emmitsburg, Md. It was hurricane response and recovery, but we wanted more emphasis on recovery, said Robert Wesch, assistant emergency management director. We do a lot of response and have done it in the past, but thankfully we have never had to do the two-week, two-month or longer recovery. Should a big storm create a long-term emergency, such as happened in 2005 in Louisiana and Mississippi with Hurricane Katrina, county responders are better prepared. Their weeks training took them through all the stages: the initial response for the first 24 hours, the middle phase of 24 to 72 hours, and then the longer term beyond that time. The trainees represented many backgrounds: sheriffs office, county government, Nature Coast Emergency Medical Services, animal services, Progress Energy, Citrus County Fire Rescue, economic development council, chamber of commerce and the health department. FEMA picked up the expense for the training, which Wesch said would have cost the county $35,000 to $40,000. The meals cost $97 per person for the week. Wesch initiated the training idea about two and a half years ago, after he attended training in Manatee County. They were talking about their county sending 75 people up to Maryland to take training on hurricane response, Wesch said. Early last year, the county learned it could send staff for training. FEMA staff came to Citrus County first to customize the training to its conditions and situations. During scenarios, familiar Special to the Chronicle Sixty-seven people from Citrus County went to Maryland last week for emergency management training. Some are pictured here in a classroom at the National Emergency Training Center in Emmitsburg, Md. They learned about carrying out long-term recovery procedures and how all their efforts work together. See FEMA Page A2 L OU E LLIOTTJ ONES Special to the ChronicleThe 1st District Court of Appeal has denied Yankeetowns request to review Levy Countys conditional special exception permit granted to the Tarmac King Road mine project, possibly closing that case. Another suit, filed citing different grounds for challenging the permit that was filed by WAR, the Withlacoochee Area Residents, is still alive in the appeals court. The appeals courts denial on Feb. 15 of Yankeetowns petition for certiorari a judicial review of a local judges decision is not likely to reach the state Supreme Court. Mayor Dawn Clary said no member of the town council has asked to put an item discussing an appeal on the next meeting agenda. Oh gosh, no, unless the council reverses its opinion on that when it was discussed in the meeting to approve the appeal, she said. It was said at that time that that would be the end of our involvement. That is not to say they may not revisit that. In August 2011, 8th Judicial Circuit Court Judge Robert E. Rountree Jr. dismissed the towns petition that wanted to undo the Levy County Commissions 3-1 decision in May 2011 to conditionally approve mining on a 4,750-acre site near Inglis for 100 years. Tarmac first filed for a permit in 2004 for the mine that will leave more than 20 lakes on the property and create about 500 truck trips per day from the operation. Yankeetown argued the county should have waited for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers review of the operation under the federal Clean Water Act before deciding on the permit. The town said doing so departed from the countys own rules. Jeff Harris, project manager for the mine, said the appeals court essentially decided Roundtree did nothing wrong in his ruling rejecting Yankeetowns petition. I think he laid out the definition of protected and prohibited in his statement. I think Levy County did a pretty good job of reviewing the permit. In the W.A.R. Inc. appeal, the group is arguing the county violated its own land use plans, including the section on mining on environmentally sensitive lands. The groups attorney, Robert N. Hartsell of Pompano Beach, said the appeals court will be receiving initial briefs from all sides in the groups case by March 19.

If they want to fine me I can understand it, but I think its exorbitant. One hundred dollars is absolutely fleecing the people. Lindsay Ubinas, public information officer for the county, said the enforcement is per a court ordinance that was decided Oct. 25, 2011, at a public hearing. Were enforcing the consent agreement, which clearly states no more warnings, Ubinas said. Now people are taking it more seriously because they know theyre not getting a warning anymore. The reason this happened is people are using too much water. The county is over pumping from our water utilities. She said the county increased its enforcement staff, adding an extra two officers in October 2011 in response to the consent order, with their main focus primarily on enforcing the consent agreement. Windreich said she called the director of water resources office and the Board of County Commissioners office to explain her mistake and try to get her ticket rectified. Both said theres nothing they can do but told me I could appeal it, she said. Appealing the ticket could cost her as much as $500 in fines if she doesnt win. I dont think Id be very wise doing that, she said. Some of the judges are very unsympathetic, and youre at their mercy. You hardly win. Windreich said Deborah Hooper, the departments water conservation specialist, came out to Windreichs home to reset her timer for her. She said she was pleased with that, and plans to pay the fine within the 30-day allotted time period. CATHY KAPULKA /Chronicle Janice Windreich discusses ther Notice of Irrigation Violation issued to her for watering her lawn on the wrong day. Her fine is $100. FINE Continued from Page A1 FEMA Continued from Page A1 roads and landmarks were named. Everything seemed real. The reason all 67 had to go to Maryland was to emphasize the importance of the training. Fire Chief Larry Morabito said having the training in the county would leave staff open to interruptions from their regular jobs. Lindsay Ubinas, public information officer, said trainees didnt just go home to a regular life at 5 p.m. Everyone could socialize in the evenings, get to know each other and build trust. So many areas of our county were represented, Ubinas said. We learned how we could use people in those areas for needs that might arise during a hurricane. What was nice is that after the exercise, one of the comments we got back was that Citrus County has a lot of synergy, said Ken Frink, public works director and assistant county administrator. Both Frink and Cathy Pearson, community services director and assistant county administrator, attended the training. It became evident that staff might be short for a long-term recovery. We need to train more people on EOC operations, Morabito said. We need more depth. Larry Brock, deputy public works director, explained that a long-term recovery period would be physically draining on staff who would be working shifts of 12 hours on and 12 hours off. When you get into an extended time period, then youve got to start considering days off for those workers to get some R and R, Brock said. Thats going to require another shift to bring in there and backfill that position. Your pool is only so deep to draw from. People working in a longterm recovery also need their own security. Youve got to let your responders know that their families are protected, Morabito said. If they dont know their families are protected and secure, they may be there physically, but their minds are going to be somewhere else. Eric Williams, geospatial systems administrator, said he was impressed with the team, especially Dr. George Everly, associate professor of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University, whose subject was critical incident stress management. All trainers were experienced in long-term response, and were complimentary of how well the Citrus crew worked together. County staff indicated they would arrange more training within the next few months to teach others staying home this time.

In the case we filed, the appeal is different, totally different standards, he said. It deals with goals policies and objectives in the countys land use plan. Lou Elliott Jones is the editor of the Chiefland Citizen. Marcia Chesnickas group even suggested a little area for dogs. Jewel Lamb and Lisa Moores group thought adding more sand beach area and perhaps a motorized boat dock could help. Bellomo and Herbert thanked the audience for their participation and said they should have a conceptual plan for the park in about 30 days. What you all tell us is important. Everybody is not going to get what they want, but we will do our best to pay attention to what was suggested and move from there, Herbert said. Chesnicka and her husband Jay said they were really impressed by the process. Its a lot better this way. There are no surprises and everyone knows what is going on, Jay said after the workshop. Hunters Spring has been a city park since 1943, Houston said. The park currently has a pavilion with restrooms, picnic area with BBQ grills, kayak launch and a small area.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection, meanwhile, on Tuesday submitted a pair of proposed state rules covering both types of inland waters to the EPA. State officials want the federal agency to adopt their rules instead. Business, agriculture and utility interests favor the state rules, contending the federal versions would be too expensive to implement. Environmental groups support the EPA. From wire reports

Ocala Man gets 40 years for fatal home invasion A north Florida man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for a fatal home invasion. A Marion County judge sentenced 34-year-old Jason Hardy on Monday after he was convicted of home invasion robbery, burglary and kidnapping all with a firearm. The Ocala Star-Banner reported that Hardys sentence had been capped as part of a deal with prosecutors to testify against Brian Hubbard, who authorities believe was the mastermind behind the robbery. Authorities said Hardy was one of six people who broke into a Marion Oaks home in April 2006 to steal drugs and money. Austin was accused of fatally shooting 17-year-old Kindrell Lamar Stocker, who was an innocent guest at the home. Wesley ChapelDeputies investigate acid bomb at school Pasco County Sheriffs deputies have arrested a 15year-old for allegedly mixing some common household items into an acid bomb inside a soda bottle. They said he threw it into a trash can at school. The incident happened Tuesday morning at Wesley Chapel High School. Pasco County Sheriffs Office spokesman Kevin Doll said the acid bomb caused a small explosion in a trash can, which led to a short lockdown of the school. There were no injuries, but Doll said a staff member might have been exposed to some vapor. Doll did not release the teens name due to his age. He added that the acid bomb was created with common household items. Lakeland Teen dies 2 days after being shot in the head Authorities said a teenager died two days after he was shot in the head inside a Lakeland home. Police have released few details about the shooting that critically injured 17-yearold Daylon Easton on Saturday. They said he died Monday at Lakeland Regional Medical Center. The Ledger of Lakeland reported investigators are talking to several people who were in the house when the shooting occurred.

SIDIBE Staff WriterINVERNESS An Inverness woman who allegedly had a little too much to drink reportedly asked a male friend to go out and do more partying, but when he refused she battered him, according to the sheriffs office. Michelle Lisa Pascalli, 30, was arrested Saturday on a charge of felony battery and resisting arrest without violence. According to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office report, Pascalli reportedly had several beers and asked her 53-year-old male friend for a ride to go purchase drugs and party. He told investigators he refused to do so, and Pascalli became irate and ripped off his shirt and struck him in the groin area. The man reportedly refused to pursue charges, but Pascalli was arrested. Other witnesses corroborated the mans version of events. Pascalli was convicted twice in 2011 in two separate battery cases. No bond was allowed. Eric Cody Weldon, 23, of Beverly Hills, was arrested Friday on a charge of domestic battery for allegedly pinning a womans face on the couch and punching her in the leg. Weldon reportedly became enraged when a 25-year-old female friend went out with friends. He allegedly was intoxicated and repeatedly called the woman to come home, according to a report from the Sheriffs office. After she got home, Weldon reportedly began accusing her of cheating on him. The woman reportedly tried to smooth things over by pouring out the rest of the alcohol Weldon had, which enraged him even more. Weldon allegedly grabbed the woman and pinned her face on the couch while holding her hands behind her back and then punched her on the leg. Weldon was later arrested, but denied touching the woman. Bond was not allowed. Karen Provenzano, 55, Homosassa, was arrested Friday on a charge of domestic battery for kicking a man. According to a CCSO report, Provenzano had been drinking and wrote a note to a man. When the man asked her about issues raised in the note, Provenzano reportedly began arguing and then went to the bedroom. The man also went into the same bedroom to retrieve some items. He told investigators that was when Provenzano began kicking him. He allegedly grabbed her foot and pushed her back on the bed. He said he then exited the room. Provenzano was alleged to be the aggressor and was arrested. No bond was allowed. Brittany Nicole Groom, 21, of Inverness was arrested Friday on a charge of domestic battery for causing several scrapes and cuts on a man. Groom reportedly wanted a ride into town and became upset when none of her friends would take her. Groom reportedly began pushing her mothers wheelchair around the garage. The man commanded her to stop. Groom allegedly stopped and went over and struck the man on the face. The man in turn pushed her down. She reportedly began clawing at the man, immediately causing several cuts and scrapes on the mans neck, face and arms. Grooms allegedly said the man pushed her down and jumped on her and began hitting her, and that she only hit him in a bid to escape. Other witnesses reportedly supported the mans version of events, and Grooms was arrested. No bond allowed. Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@chronicleonline.com. Four arrested in battery cases A man and a dream S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Scott Baggerly has a vision. Its an ambitious dream of seeing his 58-acre property just north of Crystal River transformed into a faith-based retreat and educational hub for the county. Fusing together his strong religious beliefs with his love of helping children, it is his hope to see his not-for-profit facility, Faith Haven Christian Retreat Center, come to fruition very soon. Since 2008, Baggerly has been working tirelessly to raise the money needed to build the retreat center, which would house up to 40 overnight guests. Baggerly envisions the campus including two bunkhouses, a common area with a kit chen, a bathhouse, an outdoor cha p el and an adventure course with ropes teambuilding courses. The retreat center would be designed to encourage community, education and team building in a Christian-based environment. In 2008, Baggerly said he originally envisioned having log cabins made from cypress logs on his property to establish the retreat. But the $600,000 price tag and a faltering economy caused Baggerly to rethink his game plan. Instead, Baggerly said he would like to place four DCA-approved buildings on the five acres of conditional-use permitted land he owns to get the job done. Altogether, he said it would cost $70,000. Though his goal is to have the retreat ready for the summer, he said hes been having a difficult time raising funds for his capital campaign to get things accomplished. In October, he hosted his first fundraising event, a fall festival. Though the event was well attended, he said he broke even. In the meantime, while he tries to raise money, Baggerly has already had a number of youth groups come use the property and his heritage stables, Soquili Stables, for small retreats. His stable houses 10 horses, seven of which are Florida Cracker horses. Baggerly said he is hoping to host another event this year, and during the summer, his wife, Diane, and horse trainer Merlyn Lewis will be running an eightweek horse camp where children will not only ride horses, but learn how to care for them. Its a day camp, Lewis said. The children will come around 8 a.m. and leave around 4 p.m. They will have a lot of riding and classroom time. While the camp is a small step in the right direction, Baggerly is hopeful he will get the support and funding he needs to make Faith Haven Christian Retreat Center a reality. All it takes is one person, he said. We want to give back to the community, he said. This is my vision. This is what we want to do.

SHEMIR WILES /Chronicle Scott Baggerly explains where he would like to set up the main part of the retreat, which would house up to 40 overnight guests.

Land owner envisions new Christian retreat center for Citrus N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS Tuesdays brief Inverness City Council meeting began with Mayor Bob Plaisted giving Cooter kudos, the citys highest honor, to retiring officers of Keep Citrus County Beautiful. Since its inception in 2001, Keep Citrus County Beautiful has made a positive impact in the city of Inverness, Plaisted said, partnering with us on several projects, and is always willing to assist us with the promotion, education and facilitation of anti-litter solutions while contributing to the beautification of the city and Citrus County. In return, members of KCCB presented Plaisted with their January 2012 Pride Award, recognizing Inverness for the completion of the Tompkins Street streetscape. Its one of many projects weve watched the city do over the past 10 years, said KCCB president Susie Metcalfe. Also on the agenda, council members discussed a revision to a utility ordinance that would change the definitions of residential and commercial accounts so they match the sanitation ordinances definitions, and adopt a better system for identifying new residential customers who may be poor credit risks using an online verification system. The system would be used to determine deposit fees, deposit waivers and would improve the way the city detects fraud. According to City Manager Frank DiGiovanni, the city loses between $8,000 and $10,000 a year in bad debt write-offs. Well still lose money, he said, but this will help us reduce the amount well lose. Cooter kudos for KCCB Beautification organization officers honored Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Two environmental groups notified the U.S. Forest Service on Tuesday that theyll sue the agency if it doesnt agree to remove the Rodman Reservoirs dam because it is imperiling manatees and shortnose sturgeon, both endangered species. Efforts to remove the George Kirkpatrick Dam in Putnam County, drain the reservoir and restore the Ocklawaha River have met resistance in the past from the Florida Legislature, the St. Johns River Water Management District, local government officials and bass fishing interests. The dam is a vestige of the ill-fated Cross Florida Barge Canal project, which was to cross Central Florida and link the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. The dam is named for a former state senator who fought to preserve the 9,600acre, 15-mile-long reservoir that attracts anglers from across the nation. The environmentalists filed the 60-day notice of their intent to sue four decades after President Richard Nixon halted the cross-state barge canal project because it was a failed boondoggle that threatened to cause serious environmental damage, said Florida Defenders of the Environment president, Stephen Robitaille. Much of the project area is now the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway. Florida Defenders and the Florida Wildlife Federation contend the dam violates the federal Endangered Species Act by blocking the migration of the sturgeon and manatees, keeping the latter from reaching warmer waters during the winter months. The groups are being represented by Earthjustice, an environmental legal organization. We believe that the Rodman (reservoir) dam is a ridiculous relic that no longer serves any useful purpose, Earthjustice lawyer David Guest said at a news conference. The dam is harmful to the river and the species that live in it. ... This has been a sore on the conscience of every Florida environmentalist. Forest Service spokeswoman Denise Rains said she couldnt comment on the potential litigation but that the rivers restoration has been a longtime agency goal. A portion of the Ocala National Forest has been submerged by the reservoir. Berms that form part of the dam are on federal property, although its metal structure is on state property, Rains said. Activists threaten to sue state over Rodman Dam Environmentalists want structure removed

Appalachias aging numbers rising fast D AN S EWELL Associated PressMT. ORAB, Ohio Its winter, so Donna Robirds puts on two sweaters in the morning and keeps heavy blankets handy as she sets her thermostat low 60 at night and bundles up to keep her utility bill down. At 67, with a fixed income and a $563-a-month mortgage, she lives on a tight budget. Food stamps help the retired state employee stretch her budget in this Appalachian village. So has the mild winter. We havent had the extreme cold, so it hasnt been too bad, she said. I really need to watch my money. Its going to be a struggle. Robirds daily battle is being played out across the Appalachian region, which stretches through 13 states from northeastern Mississippi to southern New York. A part of the country that has long lagged behind the rest of the U.S. economically, finds itself on the leading edge of a national trend: The number of Americans 65 and older is increasing, and many are struggling as government services are being cut in a rough economy. Nationally, with the aging of the baby boom generation, people 65 and over are expected to account for 1 of every 5 Americans by 2030. Some places in Appalachia have already reached that benchmark, such as southern Ohios Brown County, where Robirds lives. These counties are like the canary in the coal mine, said Suzanne Kunkel, who heads the Scripps Gerontology Center at Miami University of Ohio. This is a pretty dramatic change coming. More than 15 percent of Appalachias population is already at least 65, compared with 13 percent nationally, according to the 2010 Census. And projections show the number rising steadily in much of the region, as it is nationally. The aging population means more demand for health care, economic help, transportation and home help, which are already in short supply in much of Appalachia. Its getting more urgent in the number of people needing those services and having those available to them, said Robert Roswall, commissioner of West Virginias Bureau of Senior Services. We have people waiting for all those type of programs. Appalachia has long been plagued by isolation, poor roads, sewer systems and other infrastructure needs, lack of education and the decline of coal mining, manufacturing and other key industries. The region has low per-capita income (less than $30,000 in 2009, 18 percent lower than the nations), low college graduation rates, an exodus of young working people, and high rates of heart disease, cancer and diabetes, along with poor access to health care. Peggy Basham, 74, of Summersville, W.Va., is worried. I think most everybody in the area is, she said. Youve got baby boomers coming on. Youve got so many seniors. ... Nothing stretches very far. Basham helps craft quilts that are sold to support the Nicholas County Senior Citizens Center. The senior center feeds 500 people per month, and Basham said more would come if only they had transportation from their mountain homes. She said she sees elderly people regularly forced to choose whether to pay for prescription drugs, heat their homes or buy groceries. West Virginia officials say their state has the countrys highest concentration of older residents than anywhere but Florida. Sixteen percent of West Virginias population is 65 or older, compared with 17.3 percent in Florida, according to census figures. And unlike those who flock to Floridas retirement villages and condominium complexes, aging people in West Virginia and elsewhere in Appalachia have long been less likely to move, often because they cant afford it or they have a strong attachment to home. Robirds doesnt have much choice: Her homes market value declined in the nations housing crisis, and she is years away from paying it off. But the mother of three doesnt want to move anyway. I want to have a place for my grandchildren to stay when they visit, she said, and to be able to have my passion for gardening. Robirds got some vital help from Cincinnati-based People Working Cooperatively, a nonprofit organization that sent workers before winter to add insulation, clean vents, service her furnace, replace her refrigerator and perform other maintenance. The organization, dedicated to helping poor people stay in their homes in the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana region, is seeing demand for its services rocket over the last two years, from 40,000 calls for help in 2009 to 66,000 in 2011, according to president Jock Pitts. Those in charge of dealing with the surging numbers of elderly people say such community-based help and other innovative solutions are especially important in struggling areas such as Appalachia. Given our states limited resources were not going to hit the lottery we are changing, in Ohio, our approach, said Bonnie Kantor-Burman, head of Ohios Department of Aging. There is a limit to what the state and federal governments are going to be able to do. She sounds the alarm by often displaying a set of color-coded maps produced through Miamis Gerontology Center that show the projected aging of the population in eye-popping detail: In 2000, about one-fourth of the population in three of Ohios 88 counties was 60 or older; in 2010, that was true of 16 counties, most of them in Appalachia. By 2020, its projected to be 76 counties with one-third of the population in six of those counties 60 or older. Other community efforts to keep senior citizens in their homes include The Village concept, in which residents and volunteers help provide transportation, handyman work and home health care. Pioneered in Boston in the last decade, it is spreading into such states as North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

Suicides family finds body in trash BRANDON The family of a man who killed himself on Valentines Day found a decomposing body inside a garbage can taped shut in the back yard of his home near Tampa. Hillsborough County Sheriffs spokesman Larry McKinnon said the body found Monday had likely been in the garbage can for some time. The Tampa Bay Times reported 31-year-old Micah Rogers died from carbon monoxide poisoning after leaving a motor scooter running in his bedroom earlier this month. Officials have not identified the body found Monday. The newspaper reported that detectives discovered that Rogers older brother, 33-yearold Benna Rogers, has been unaccounted for over the past few months. McKinnon said investigators are trying to find out whether he is missing or has just been out of contact with the family.Trial delayed again in Rilya Wilson caseMIAMI Trial is once again being delayed in the murder case involving Rilya Wilson, a little Miami girl who disappeared over a decade ago. A Miami-Dade County judge on Tuesday set a new July 23 trial date for Rilyas former caretaker Geralyn Graham. The trial had been set to begin March 26. Rilya was a 4-year-old foster child who disappeared in late 2000 and has never been found. The 66-year-old Graham is facing first-degree murder, kidnapping and child abuse charges. Prosecutors are relying heavily on testimony from jail inmates who claim Graham confessed to them. Graham has denied killing Rilya. It took 15 months for state child welfare officials to discover Rilya was missing. Floridas child welfare agency was overhauled after Rilyas disappearance but is still accused of lax oversight. Pastor in church shooting dead LAKELAND A Florida pastor has been found dead in his home five months after he was shot at a central Florida church. Polk County Sheriffs officials said a friend became worried last week after he hadnt heard from 65-year-old Carl Stewart. He found Stewart dead in his home on Thursday. The medical examiners office said Tuesday that an official cause of Stewarts death hasnt been determined and that the medical examiner is awaiting toxicology reports before issuing a final report. Polk County Sheriffs spokeswoman Carrie Eleazer said it will be up to prosecutors whether to file additional charges against 57-year-old Jeremiah Fogle, who is accused in the September 2011 church shooting that left Stewart and another pastor wounded. Deputies also found Fogles wife dead in their home during the September 2011 incident. Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott is quickly and somewhat quietly building up a large campaign account for re-election even though the race is three years away. In a matter of just four months, a political committee tied to Scott has received nearly $550,000 with checks coming in from various special interest groups and a six-figure check from a well-known South Florida health care businessman. Democrats say they arent surprised by Scotts decision to raise so much money so far in advance of the 2014 election. They maintain it shows that hes worried about his political future. Recent polls have shown Scotts favorable rating remains below 50 percent. Hes vulnerable and his agenda is too extreme and hes vastly unpopular, said Scott Arceneaux, executive director of the Florida Democratic Party. But Tony Fabrizio, a top political adviser for Scott, said Tuesday there is no reason for the governor to wait since hes already made it clear he plans to seek a second term. Whats the logic to waiting? Fabrizio said. He added that as the economy improves and the states unemployment rate drops, the governors poll numbers will inevitably rise. The decision to start raising large amounts of money now could help dissuade any talk of a primary challenge within his own party and send a message to any Democratic contenders. Scott spent more than $70 million of his own money to win his first bid for office, but the buildup of money in his own political committee just shows how daunting it could be for someone to take on the multimillionaire. Florida law caps donations to a campaign at $500, but donations to certain types of political committees are unlimited. Florida law allows these organizations to coordinate with a campaign and run television and radio ads as long as they do not say vote for or against someone. Scotts political organization called Lets Get to Work helped his maverick campaign for governor and paid for television ads. But it was largely dormant in the months right after he took office.

Call now for a FREE In-Home Estimate Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A rewrite of a proposed law that allows state agencies to randomly drug-test its employees was approved by the House Appropriations Committee on Tuesday. Just last week, panel members voted down the bill (HB 1205) after fellow lawmakers including Republicans questioned its legality and its cost to taxpayers. Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, the bills sponsor, amended it so that no extra money for drug tests is needed; theyll be paid for out of the agencies existing budgets. Another change made by the Inverness Republican is that the random sample of employees to be tested cant be more than 10 percent of the agencys workforce and must be generated by an independent thirdparty computer. The bill cleared the panel by a 15-8 vote. The measure allows, but does not require, state agencies to randomly test workers every three months. It makes it easier to fire those who show positive for drugs after a first test that has been confirmed. Smith has said he wants to ensure a drug-free state workplace. Last year, he sponsored a law that mandates drug testing of welfare recipients; that law now is being challenged in federal court. A separate executive order by Gov. Rick Scott requiring random drug testing of state workers resulted in a lawsuit and also is being litigated in federal court. A hearing in that case is set for Wednesday. Scott supports Smiths bill. Rep. Paige Kreegel, a Punta Gorda Republican, acknowledged that he had been visited by one of Scotts staff members, who was gingering up support for the bills passage. In a surprise move, Rep. Darryl Rouson who has spoken publicly about his past battles with drugs was the lone Democrat to vote for the measure. I think it is a privilege to work for government ... why is anyone afraid of being tested for the ingestion of illegal drugs, said Rouson, who added he didnt think the legislation went far enough. Some lawmakers who voted against the measure last week, including Republican Rep. Marti Coley of Marianna, switched their votes after Smith made the changes. The way to not make this an issue is not to come to work on drugs, Coley said. Several Democrats said they could not support the bill because it will trigger an expensive legal battle.

Smokin out Cancer Barbecue cook-off, music fest will benefit Relay River group to host special speaker Special to the ChronicleMembers of the Citrus County Composite Squadron, Civil Air Patrol (CAP) searched for a 1994 aircraft crash site in Potts Preserve on Jan. 21. The Search and Rescue Exercise (SAREX) training was part of the members training to achieve Emergency Services Ground Team mission qualifications. The SAREX, under the auspices of CAPs Group III Headquarters home based at MacDill Air Force Base, was led by Capt. Charles Scott Anderson, commander of the squadron. The training mission was controlled by a mission base set up at DAV Gerald A. Shonk Chapter 70 building on North Paul Drive, Inverness, under the direction of the incident commander, CAP Maj. Len Goellner. The field portion of the training took place in Potts Preserve. Preparation for the exercise included an onsite survey of the Feb. 22, 1994, crash site of a Piper PA28-161 aircraft. Ground team members in training used maps, GPS and an overhead spotter aircraft flown by Senior Member Steven Severance to scout for the site by its location of record, while communicating with hand-held radios to coordinate their search activities. Although the trainees did not locate the actual crash site, they did locate a demolished structure that from the air appeared to be a crashed aircraft. This site location was reported to Group III Headquarters as the likely culprit of reported sightings of the crash. The survey, actually a re-survey of the old crash site, was to confirm the map coordinates of the accident site and determine if the recorded wreckage color scheme of red/white/maroon is still valid. A search of the site of record did not reveal any aircraft wreckage; however, the heavily wooded terrain today is very much different from the conditions reported at the site more than 20 years ago. Throughout the training exercise, participating cadets were supervised by CAP senior members and safety was emphasized. Emergency services is one of the three prime missions of Civil Air Patrol. Under very specific conditions, cadets are allowed to participate in ground search operations, and the activity in January was designed to teach safe methods.

Johnson & Johnson CEO Bill Weldon to retire in AprilTRENTON, N.J. Johnson & Johnsons longtime CEO, Bill Weldon, is retiring in April, following an embarrassing string of product recalls over more than two years that has cost the health care giant hundreds of millions of dollars and consumer trust. The maker of Band-Aids and biotech drugs said Tuesday that Weldon will remain chairman of the board for the time being, while ceding the chief executive post to Alex Gorsky, head of the medical device and diagnostics business. The official transfer will be on April 26, the day of the companys next annual shareholders meeting. Since January 2011, Gorsky has been vice chairman of J&Js executive committee, the senior leadership team. Besides the medical devices and diagnostics unit, which J&J claims is the largest business of its kind in the world, Gorskey oversees 140 manufacturing facilities around the world. Hes also in charge of both government affairs and policy, and the companys venture capital subsidiary, called the Johnson and Johnson Development Corp. Wal-Marts 4Q results show rebounding US businessNEW YORK Wal-Mart Stores Inc.s business offers valuable insight into how Americans are reacting in the slow economic recovery: they will spend, but only if they believe theyre getting the lowest prices. The worlds largest retailer guaranteed holiday shoppers that theyd get the lowest prices on merchandise. As a result, bargain-hungry shoppers flocked to Wal-Mart in the fourth quarter, helping it to record its first increased store traffic in at least two years. But the companys profit margins suffered. Wal-Mart said Tuesday that revenue at stores open at least a year at its U.S. namesake business rose 1.5 percent in the quarter, slightly below the 1.6 percent gain analysts polled by FactSet had expected. Overall, its U.S. business had a 2.1 percent increase in revenue at stores opened at least a year, including a 5.4 percent rise at Sams Clubs.

The Dow Jones industrial average, powered higher all year by optimism that the economic recovery is finally for real, crossed 13,000 on Tuesday for the first time since May 2008. The last time the Dow was there, unemployment was 5.4 percent, and Lehman Brothers was a solvent investment bank. Financial crises happened in other countries, or the history books. The milestone Tuesday came about two hours into the trading day. The Dow was above 13,000 for about 30 seconds, and for slightly longer at about noon and 1:30 p.m., but couldnt hold its gains. It finished up 15.82 points at 12,965.69. Still, Wall Street took note of the marker. It was just last summer that the Dow unburdened itself of 2,000 points in three terrifying weeks. Standard & Poors downgraded the United States credit rating, Washington was fighting over the federal borrowing limit, and the European debt crisis was raging. A second recession in the United States was a real fear. But the economy grew faster every quarter last year, and gains in the job market have been impressive, including 243,000 jobs added in January alone. Essentially, over the last couple of months youve taken the two biggest fears off the table that Europe is going to melt down and that were going to have another recession here, said Scott Brown, chief economist for Raymond James. The tumult of last summer and fall left the Dow as low as 10,655. It closed Tuesday 22 percent above that low. The Dow is 1,199 points from an all-time high, a 9 percent rally from here. In the U.S., investors were cheered early by earnings from Home Depot, watched closely as a barometer of American spending on homes, and Macys. WalMart missed Wall Street expectations, and its stock lost 4 percent, worst among the 30 stocks in the Dow. The index has climbed steadily this year. It has gained 6 percent and has not lost 100 points on any day. The Greek debt crisis may be receding, but high gasoline prices are emerging as a threat to the economic recovery, and thus the stock market. A gallon of regular gas costs $3.57 on average, the highest on record for this time of year.

Page A12 WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2012 Discourage Obama Charles Payne will tell it like it is. Mr. Payne is very knowledgeable. Obama does not want to quote Aristotle, he wants to quote Obama. On top of that, I just read that article by Monica Hill titled Enough Already! Lets provide socialist alternatives to the electoral farce in 2012. This country has been brought to the edge of the abyss. The U.S. voter is being lied to, hit with many types of fear by fear mongers and 5 million felons have been stripped of their voting rights and are black. As Mr. Payne has said on a quote by Aristotle, if you want to encourage something, reward it. If you want to discourage it, punish it. Obama is leaving American kids to fend for themselves when it comes to securing scientists, engineers, technicians and math professionals. As usual, Obama is talking out the side of his mouth. Since the U.S. voter is being injected with massive corporate financing of campaigns, combined with dirty tricks, media censorship, and systemic racism, it marginalizes the 99 percent right out of their own electoral process, resulting in the U.S. being the lowest in voter turnout in the industrialized world. Shame, shame. This is all Obama thinks about to be re-elected, it just got him over $200 million, and these vast roadblocks are getting radical progressives on the ballot and produce twin-party fear, not voter hostility to the political alternatives. That is why our illustrious Mr. Obama has more than 54,000 square feet in a building in Chicago to produce votes for him. He learned the Chicago corruption well. One way or another the Freedom Socialist Party will be mounting for Obama an authentic presidential campaign and they will try to put an end to capitalism via the ballot box. This will be Obamas effective so-called revolutionary action for change, and he will do it with lies and a straight face. God bless America. Amen. Dale F. Catanzaro Homosassa Fly your flag Within the First Amendment in the U.S. Constitution is the right to practice ones religion. But the Obama administration, in the name of health, has repealed the rights of Roman Catholics to the right of conscience. No matter what ones religion, or even if one has no religion, this move should be a wake-up call for everyone. As usual, We the People have no say in what is happening, but there is one thing we can do! For many years our family has flown a United States flag in front of our home. We will no longer be using that flag, because politicians have sullied it to the extent that it cannot be shown with pride. Instead we will be flying the flag of our religious denomination! We urge other people who cherish the right to practice ones religion to do the same thing. There are many flags to be found on the Internet for various religions. Even if one is not religious, there are other flags one can fly. Hopefully, most people know that the taking of one right from the Constitution will in certainty be followed with another, then another, until the whole document will be nothing but scrap paper! Carol Swiderski Homosassa R ick Santorum was a sitting senator who, in re-election, lost by 19 points, Donald Trump, a Mitt Romney supporter, said recently. Then he goes out and says, Oh, OK, I just lost by the biggest margin in history, now Im going to run for president. Tell me, how does that work? Trump exaggerated only slightly; Santorum actually lost by 18 points. But theres no doubt the most glaring weakness in the case for Santorums electability is that 2006 reelection loss. After two terms in the Senate, the voters of Pennsylvania simply threw Santorum out on his ear. Why? Santorum explains it mostly by saying was a terrible year for Republicans. Indeed, the GOP in the sixth year of George W. Bushs time in office, did lose control of both the House and Senate. But why did Santorum lose so badly? The biggest policy reason was Santorums outspoken support for the war in Iraq. By November 2006, the war was going badly and threatened to turn into a fullscale catastrophe. President Bush resisted calls to change course. While Santorums Democratic opponent, Bob Casey, called for a new policy, Santorum stuck with the president, and with the war. He even made it his primary focus in the last days of the campaign. The voters clobbered him for it. In Pennsylvania exit polls, 61 percent of voters said they disapproved of the war. Santorum lost among them, 15 percent to Caseys 85 percent. Among the largest subgroup of war opponents, the 42 percent of voters who said they strongly disapproved of the war, Santorum was routed 93 percent to 7 percent. That by itself was enough to doom any hopes for a third term. Santorum didnt lose just because of the war. The economy was also an issue in Pennsylvania in 2006, and Santorum lost 66 percent to 34 percent among voters to whom the economy was a critical issue. Santorum even ran disappointingly on values issues, his usual strength, splitting the vote 50-50 among those who said values were extremely important. But it wasnt all issues. Santorum also made personal decisions that came back to haunt him in 2006. For example, even though he owned a modest home in Pennsylvania, he moved his family to a much nicer house in Virginia, leading to charges not only that he had abandoned his home state but also that he had gone native in Washington. In Virginia, Santorum kept his home-schooled children in a program run by the Western Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School. That cost Pennsylvania taxpayers thousands of dollars a year, and some of Santorums political opponents demanded that he reimburse the state. Just pay the money back, Casey said to Santorum in one debate. You ripped off the taxpayers. Pay it back. Santorum declined, and an adjudicator ruled in his favor, but the school issue highlighted the fact that Santorum had left Pennsylvania behind. Finally, there was Santorums personality. In the Senate as well as in his home state, Santorum often struck people as arrogant and headstrong, preachy and judgmental. Even today, he sometimes becomes so involved in an argument that he seems intent more on winning the argument than reaching some sort of useful agreement. Throughout his career Santorum has always maintained that his forthrightness means everyone knows where he stands. Sometimes it means people know they dont like him. Looking back on 2006 in private conversations with friends, Santorum is said to understand that he sometimes came on too strong for the voters comfort. The question for today is how much he has changed. Theres no doubt he still struggles a bit with the Old Rick: He often seems determined to get the upper hand in disputes that he probably shouldnt be having in the first place. The reasons for Santorums defeat are too complicated for a 30second ad or a brief answer at a debate. He can blame a lot of factors, but in the end he was most responsible for his own fate. Now, if Santorums presidential campaign continues to soar, hell likely have to discuss the defeat more. The Romney campaign will point to it as proof that Santorum cant win the White House. Santorums job is to tell voters and prove to them with his actions that he has learned from his loss, and that hes a better candidate for it. Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner. Who ever is adequate? We all create situations each other cant live up to, then break our hearts at them because they dont. Elizabeth Bowen, The Death of the Heart, 1938 Why did Santorum lose in 2006? CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M. Williamson You may differ with my choice, but not my right to choose. David S. Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARD Gerry Mulligan .......................................... publisherCharlie Brennan ............................................ editor Mike Arnold .......................................... HR directorSandra Frederick ............................ managing editor Curt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member Some things dont seem to change A bout a year ago, we wrote about Floridas Nineteenth Statewide Grand Jury, whose landmark report said public corruption continues to be an issue of great importance in all aspects of government, politics, and business throughout the State and is pervasive at all levels of government. Last year, thenstate Republican Party leader Sen. John Thrasher, RSt. Augustine, said the Senate would take a hard look at the report. Maybe it did, maybe it didnt, but last years crop of new laws did not feature ethics reform. This year an ethics bill had some high-powered support, but still failed in committee. To Thrashers credit, as Senate Rules Committee chairman, he co-sponsored a bill restricting employment of legislators with state universities and colleges. The bills co-sponsor was Senate President-designate Don Gaetz, R-Niceville. The bill was intended, among other things, to avoid future instances of legislators who vote on schools appropriations from reaping personal benefit through employment with those schools. Remember former House Speaker Ray Sansom from Destin, who took a lucrative job with a college to which he had just steered millions of dollars? Or Sen. Evelyn Lynn, R-Ormond Beach, who pushed through millions to establish a university literacy center, then was hired to a high-paying job there? Dont forget current Senate President Mike Haridopolous, RMelbourne, who was paid as faculty by his local community college, for several years, to write a slim book that initially appeared as only a single-reference copy. The bills sponsors seem to understand the public perception of legislators feathering their own nests. Thrasher said he wanted to show taxpayers that the Legislature will clean up its act. And Gaetz has said that the problem is legislators who suddenly find themselves able to be employed by colleges or universities who maybe arent qualified to walk into the classroom. What is ethical behavior? Aside from the Code of Ethics that every elected state official is responsible to uphold, a grand jury wrote that ethics is action you can defend publicly and comfortably. However, the burden of ethics is that there is no checklist or computer program that can teach you every ethical decision; personal judgment and responsibility are necessary. Clearly, people determined to take advantage will find ways. But still, its disheartening to know that more than a year after a severe, public spanking by the statewide grand jury, legislators seem no closer to ensuring that public interest, not private, is the No. 1 priority. THE ISSUE: Lawmakers again chafe over proposed political rules.OUR OPINION: Continue to advocate for stronger ethical standards.

Park elsewhereTo the person complaining about parking at some of the various parking lots, the fact that theyve got to park by pickup trucks and they have trouble: A solution might be to park in a different area themselves, not want the world to change for them. This is just typical. If I find an area that is difficult to park in because of the amount of parking spaces available, at most every place that I know of in this county, theres another place to move to. So you move and you have to walk an extra 10 steps. So what? And you dont have to worry about a truck blocking you so you have trouble backing out.Thanks, deputy God bless the deputy (who) called in the fire on Bedford Road last Friday (Jan. 20). You saved a lot of little lives, (and) a lot of property. Thank you, thank you. P .S. I really liked your new car. Cool.

Associated PressBEIRUT Food and water are running dangerously low in the besieged Syrian city of Homs, with frantic cries for help from residents amid government shelling that pounded rebel strongholds and killed at least 30 people Tuesday, activists said. Shells reportedly rained down on rebellious districts at a rate of 10 per minute at one point and the Red Cross called for a daily twohour cease-fire so that it can deliver emergency aid to the wounded and sick. If they dont die in the shelling, they will die of hunger, activist and resident Omar Shaker told The Associated Press after hours of intense shelling concentrated on the rebelheld neighborhood of Baba Amr that the opposition has extolled as a symbol of their 11-month uprising against President Bashar Assads regime. Another 33 people were killed in northern Syrias mountainous Jabal al-Zawiya region when government forces raided a town in pursuit of regime opponents, raising Tuesdays overall death toll to 63, activists said. The Local Coordination Committees, an opposition group in the country, said more than 100 were killed Tuesday, but the report could not immediately be confirmed by others. Russia, one of Assads remaining allies, urged the United Nations to send a special envoy to Syria to help coordinate security issues and delivery of humanitarian assistance. Assads forces showed no sign of easing their assault on Homs, Syrias thirdlargest city, whose defiance has become an embarrassing counterpoint to the regimes insistence that the opposition is mostly armed factions with limited public support. The rebel defenses in Homs are believed to be bolstered by hundreds of military defectors, which has possibly complicated attempts by Syrian troops to stage an offensive. On Monday, reinforcements of Syrian tanks and soldiers massed outside the city in what could be a prelude to a ground attack. Government troops have been unable to advance because of stiff resistance from defectors inside, an activist in Homs told the AP on condition of anonymity, because of fears of government reprisal. Another activist in Homs said the shelling started after repeated attempts by troops to storm the edges of Baba Amr, which the opposition has dubbed Syrias Misrata after the Libyan city that refused to fall to withering government attacks last year. Jackpot Feds: Ohioan planned murderCLEVELAND Federal authorities say an Ohio woman who describes herself as an animal-welfare activist has been charged with soliciting murder in a plot to kill someone wearing fur. Court records show 27-year-old Cleveland Heights resident Meredith Lowell appeared Tuesday in federal court in Cleveland and was ordered held by the U.S. Marshals Service pending a hearing next week. Investigators say the FBI was notified in November of a Facebook page Lowell created with an alias offering $830 to $850 for the hit. Somalia Associated Press A Somali schoolgirl observes the arrival of Kenyan soldiers and media Tuesday in the town of Dhobley, currently under control by Kenyan military and Somali government forces, in Somalia. Kenyas military has been fighting an ongoing offensive against militant group al-Shabab since October. Chile says Peru border to reopen SANTIAGO, Chile Chiles government said it will reopen the border with Peru by Wednesday night, following heavy rains that displaced land mines and floated some onto the Pan-American Highway. Defense Minister Andres Allamand said troops have been clearing debris and searching for anti-personnel and anti-tank land mines that were dislodged by flooding in the border zone.

But authorities say they were death traps, employed by a murderous band to harvest victims who would be strangled for what little they possessed. Police are blaming the band for at least 69 killings and say dozens more victims survived the stranglings and were left for dead in isolated stretches of the working-class city of 1 million people on the arid plateau above Bolivias capital. This kind of assault came about because people, of necessity, take whatever transport they can get, said police Col. Felix Rocha, chief of Bolivias criminal police. Gang members would ride the minibuses posing as passengers, police said. When their prey boarded and dropped into a seat, they were strangled with a rope or scarf and stripped of valuables that often amounted to little more than a cell phone and the clothes on their backs, Rocha said, the bodies dumped in remote districts of this city inhabited chiefly by indigenous migrants from the countryside. A 64-year-old man who said he survived a Feb. 5 attack by the band recounted leaving his house at 4 a.m. on his way to the bank were he collects his monthly pension. He said he confidently boarded what he thought was a public transit minibus because, as usual, his 25-cent fare was collected by a cholita, or indigenous woman. They had me sit in the front and all of the sudden I felt a blue scarf tightening around my neck. I fought back but they hit me in the ribs and face and he fell unconscious, said the man, who asked to be identified only by first name, Macario, because he fears for his safety. I woke up later in a Dumpster, Macario added. Gone were his cell phone and the equivalent of $55 in the local currency, bolivianos. Police last week announced the arrest of eight alleged members of the band, ranging in age from 30 to 45 and including the woman, whom they identified as Yuli Gutierrez Jimenez. Rocha said police seized four 14seat minibuses used by the band, two of them white, one gray and another beige. He said most of the killings occurred between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. when public transport is relatively scarce and only 400 police are on duty in the entire city, which is mostly unpaved and where many neighborhoods lack running water and electricity. Rocha said the band is believed to have killed 69 people whose bodies were found over the past 13 months, though prosecutor Santos Valencia said investigators are still trying to determine if the group was responsible for all those killings. Eurozone pulls together Greek bailout wards off disaster Associated PressBRUSSELS A second, 130 billion ($172 billion) bailout and a deep debt write-off for financially stricken Greece will ward off a financial disaster in Europe. Economists, however, only give the deal a slim chance of putting the country on the path to economic recovery and steadying its place in Europes currency union. Agreement on the bailout, reached early Tuesday after an allnight summit of finance ministers seven months after it was first proposed, will give Greece 130 billion in loans through 2014 from other eurozone governments and the International Monetary Fund. Its the countrys second bailout, following a 110 billion rescue secured in 2010 that didnt return the country to solvency. The agreement also assumes that banks and investors owed money by Greece will take new bonds that reduce their holdings by more than half. In return for the second bailout, Greece has agreed to painful and humiliating measures imposed by its mistrustful partners which also use the euro, annoyed after two years of what they say are broken promises to reform. Athens agreed to cut spending and wages, and to permit outsiders to supervise its finances through the presence of European Union and International Monetary Fund officials permanently stationed in Greece. The rescuers also demanded a separate account for the aid money and legal guarantees that creditors get paid before teachers, doctors and police do. The finance ministers from Greece and the other 16 countries that use the euro wrangled until the early morning over the details of the rescue, squeezing last-minute concessions out of private holders of Greek debt who agreed to lose 53.5 percent of the face value of their investment to avoid even more severe losses expected if Greece fails to pay 14.5 billion in debt coming due March 20. The fear is an uncontrolled bankruptcy could unleash market panic across the rest of the continent, further unsettling other struggling and debt-stricken countries such as Ireland, Portugal or the much bigger Italy or Spain. Serious risks of failure include the chance Greeces economy remains in a deep recession where its been for four straight years instead of returning to growth in 2013 as the deal assumes. That would undermine chances of paying even the reduced debt load, estimated at a still-high 120 percent of annual economic output in 2020, down from 160 percent now. Additionally, political outrage over the cutbacks could lead Greek politicians to balk at the tough conditions. That could push rescuer countries led by Germany to cut off further funding. Deadly transportation Trailer park Mata Hari Associated Press In this courtroom sketch, a government informant, identified in court records as Rebecca Williams, testifies Jan. 25 in Phoenix in the trial of two white supremacist brothers charged with bombing a black city official. Williams, dubbed a trailer park MataHari by defense attorneys, spent about five years talking with identical twins Dennis and Daniel Mahon. Informant testifies at trial Associated PressPHOENIX She has been dubbed the trailer park Mata Hari, an attractive ex-stripper recruited by the feds to spy on identical twin brothers suspected of carrying out a white-supremacist bombing. She moved into the same Oklahoma trailer park, dressed provocatively, used racial slurs and talked like a separatist. And she won the brothers confidence over a five-year period by sending them racy photos of herself, including a shot from behind of her in a Confederate-flag bikini bottom. As the trial of the 61-yearold brothers winds down in federal court, defense attorneys are arguing that the governments conduct was outrageous and that the informants actions amounted to sexual entrapment. During closing arguments Tuesday, prosecutor Michael Morrissey told the jury the hiring of the informant, identified in court records as Rebecca Becca Williams, was entirely permissible and necessary to the investigation of Dennis and Daniel Mahon. There was no use of sex to obtain evidence, he said. The brothers are accused of sending a package bomb in 2004 that maimed Don Logan, a black man who was the diversity director for the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale at the time. Logan, 54, was hospitalized for three days after the bombing and needed four operations on his hand and arm. The bombing also wounded a secretary.

S ANDRA F REDERICK Staff Writer DAYTONA BEACH When the green flag drops Sunday for the 54th running of the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway, fans, viewers and racing enthusiasts will get more than just the thrill of speed. The race usually guarantees nail-biting passes between drivers vying to lead a lap for extra points, tandem drafting and multi-car crashes. And NASCARs aerodynamic changes this year to the restrictor-plate race cars promise a competitive race one drivers said will be decided by who gets the nose of the car over the finish line first. But there is also the entertainment aspect before the engines start and tires peel down pit road. And this year is no exception. Hollywood and the music industry will once again contribute to the event billed as the Super Bowl of car racing.

Crystal River and Hernando combined for seven scoreless innings before Leopards junior shortstop Christian Arroyo, who reached on a double down the third base line, scored in the eighth on a squeeze bunt by catcher Austin Treverton, lifting Hernando to a 1-0 victory in the teams district opener. It was a nice night with the opening ceremonies, but I wish we could have brought something more special for the fans, Pirates coach Bobby Stack said. It wasnt a terrible game, but the biggest disappointment for us was not getting the hits when we needed. Leopards junior pitcher Trae Ratliff relieved junior starter Brandon Lawson in the seventh, and retired the top of the Pirates lineup in the bottom of the eighth to earn the win. Meanwhile, Crystal River senior pitcher Tyler Humphreys struck out 14, walked four, and surrendered four hits in 6 2/3 innings before being relieved by senior Weston Pope. Humphreys also accounted for the Pirates (2-1, 0-1) only extra-base hit of the night with a double that bounced off the left field fence in the sixth. We didnt capitalize like we needed to, despite having a lot of opportunities, Stack said. A lot of credit goes to them. Were a good hitting team, and they kept us off balance all night. It was just one of those nights, Stack added. Were certainly not going to get used to this. Humphreys threw over 100 pitches but grew stronger as the game went on, gaining better control and introducing more of his breaking ball. Hernando (2-2, 1-0) bats found the outfield just twice against the senior, and failed to reach third base until the decisive eight inning, as the Pirates picked off four base runners. Crystal River heads to Williston on Thursday before taking on Dunnellon at home Friday. J.M. SORACCHI Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Crystal River High School honored perhaps its most famous alum Tuesday night in front of a large crowd before the Pirates varsity baseball game against visiting Brooksville Hernando. Mike Hampton, a 1990 CRHS graduate who enjoyed a successful 16-year career with five different Major League Baseball teams, was on hand to watch the school unveil a sign in left field reading Welcome to Mike Hampton Field in a rededication ceremony. The first dedication came in 2002 when Hampton was immortalized on the original Pirates baseball field he played on in the late 1980s. That field is now history, replaced by a brand-new high school campus and, with it, a fresh baseball field. This feels a lot different than the one we played on over here, Hampton said. The dimensions are a lot farther, so I know I wouldnt have hit as many home runs. Crystal River principal Mark McCoy presented Hampton with a plaque, which had a summary of the former students rise from his humble beginnings in Citrus County to a professional athlete. Hampton also threw out the first pitch, a low strike, after huddling with the Pirates varsity team right behind the pitchers mound.

This is the time of year most clubs hold their club stroke championship, match play championship, partners better ball and a host of numerous annual invitationals. Unlike playing in your daily foursome, where the occasional transgression from the rules is usually tolerated and putts are routinely given, playing in a competitive tournament or even in weekly mens and ladies league play requires all golfers play by the rules and use the rules to protect the field. In any competition that awards prizes to the winners, you simply have an obligation to, not only police yourself, but enforce the rules of golf with your fellow competitors. Protecting the field means calling penalties on yourself and ensuring your fellow competitors, and yes, even your partners, are doing the same. Unfortunately for most people, protecting the field is a difficult proposition, because they do not want to hurt anyones feelings or be perceived as being petty. Too often, players doing the right thing are made to feel guilty, accused of taking things too seriously or called a know-it-all. The player being questioned about the rules perceives they are being singled out and takes the question as a personal attack. Often in competitions, you are paired with people you do not play with on a daily basis. The best way to avoid any confrontation or diffuse any potential tension with unfamiliar playing competitors is to clear the air before play starts. On the first tee, agree, as a group, any questions that arise about the rules are just that: questions. They are in no way meant as a personal attack or done with any malice. As a group, decide to protect the field and hope other groups are doing the same. If every group in the field agrees to operate in this fashion, chances are all players will enjoy a fun, fair and competitive tournament. Good luck in your upcoming events!

Wayne Larsen LINKS WITH LARSEN Tournaments, leagues require playing by the rules PGA Tour changes inevitable Associated PressMARANA, Ariz. No one is quick to embrace change until money is involved. Thats one reason the Players Advisory Council gave its blessing last week to the concept of the Nationwide Tour being the primary path to the big leagues, PGA Tour cards being awarded in a threetournament series and a new season starting in October instead of January. It now goes to the policy board March 27. The details and there are many remain very much under discussion. This is not just about making the developmental tour attractive to a new title sponsor. Its about making the fall tournaments relevant, and the only way to do that is to include them in the FedEx Cup season. Otherwise, the likelihood is they would go away. That equates to as much as $24.3 million in prize money, not to mention the loss in charity money, the backbone of the PGA Tour. Wed be the first professional sport to vote down money, said Joe Ogilvie, part of the 16-member PAC. Thats what we would be doing if we voted it down. When you put it in those terms, a lot of guys went from, We shouldnt do this to You kind of have to. Change appears inevitable. PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem suggested as much last week in an interview with the Los Angeles Daily News when he said while the system is not broken, we feel theres a better way to do it. Even more telling was what followed. Weve had so much success with the FedEx Cup that we feel its important to get everything oriented to the FedEx Cup, he said. Change will not be easy. The original plan was to take the top 75 players from the Nationwide Tour and players who finished from No. 126 to No. 200 on the PGA Tour money list and have them play three tournaments, with the top 50 getting their tour cards. The one detail causing the most consternation is how to blend players from two different tours. As it is, the top 25 from the Nationwide Tour earn their cards. The tour is trying to make sure most, if not all, of those 25 players are ranked in a way it would be virtually impossible for them not to earn cards in the three-tournament series. But how to merge the others? Did the player who was No. 126 on the PGA Tour money list competing every week against the top players have the same season as someone who was No. 26 on the money list while competing in the minor leagues? Ive played the Nationwide Tour twice. I finished second and third on the money list, Ogilvie said. I havent finished second or third on this money list. Ogilvies best finish on the PGA Tour was 37th in 2004. Tom Pernice Jr. has a solution that sadly is not getting much traction from tour officials. His idea is to give the top 25 on the Nationwide Tour their cards without having to play in the three-tournament series. Everyone else starts from scratch. Think about it. Under the current model of Q-school, No. 126 on the money list has no advantage over No. 168. Its not like the higherranked player is given a pair of 68s and told he doesnt have to tee off until the third of six rounds. It seems like everyone is a little unsure how to seed the guy whos 126 on the money list, said Matt Kuchar, another PAC member. These are tough decisions. Trying to figure out where everyone fits in this is awkward. I think its going to be trial-and-error. Unlike the FedEx Cup points system, this is one model the tour has to get right the first time. But this is only one piece of the puzzle. There will be several moving parts to a new schedule, just as there was when the FedEx Cup was created five years ago. One of the components might involve this week. According to two people apprised of the conversations, one option is to move the Match Play Championship to Harding Park in San Francisco and move it from late February to October as part of the fall start to the season. Details being worked out Associated Press JoeOgilvie, hitting from the first fairway of the Pebble Beach Golf Links Feb. 9, is a member of the Players Advisory Council. He said the PAC voted for the Nationwide Tour to be the primary path to the PGA Tour. HOLES-IN-ONE Cathy Brunen hit a hole-in-one at No. 16 on Feb. 17 at Twisted Oaks Golf Club.

Go ahead, pencil them in as World Series contenders. After making the playoffs three of the past four seasons, they concede itll be a major disappointment if they arent playing deep into October this year. The cost-conscious franchise rarely creates splashy headlines during the offseason, and this winter has been no different. But after quietly bolstering the middle of the batting order with a couple of modest, but productive freeagent acquisitions, manager Joe Maddon thinks the team has a very good chance to return to the postseason. I like the idea of the expectations being raised a little bit. I like the idea of people wanting to include us in that kind of a discussion. I want our players to like it, too, Maddon said Monday, the eve of the start of spring training for pitchers and catchers. The first full-squad workout is Saturday. Its more about managing expectations this year as opposed to trying to build some. Im very good with that, he said. Thats the position you want to be in on an annual basis. You want to be able to be included in that kind of talk. Much of the optimism is rooted in the Rays having one of the deepest pitching rotations in baseball, a unit that executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman didnt have to disrupt to address the clubs biggest priorities this winter, adding power to an often anemic offense and strengthening the bullpen. The front office extended a tight budget by spending $13 million to sign first baseman Carlos Pena and designated hitter Luke Scott, a couple of left-handed batters who could add some balance to a lineup already featuring Evan Longoria, Ben Zobrist, B.J. Upton, Matt Joyce and Desmond Jennings. The Rays also brought in veteran catcher Jose Molina, utility infielder Jeff Keppinger and relievers Burke Badenhop and Fernando Rodney and believe they have a blend of youth and experience capable of continuing to compete with the big spending New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox in the AL East. Last years starting rotation of James Shields, David Price, Jeremy Hellickson, Wade Davis and Jeff Niemann remains intact, and rookie left-handers Matt Moore and Alex Torres and young righty Alex Cobb provide depth in case of injuries or if the team decides to make a deal to try to improve the roster between now and opening day. Not that Friedman isnt comfortable with what seems like a surplus. We dont view it as having three first basemen when you have seven or eight starters. Over the course of 162 games, if you go back and look, starting in 2008, weve used a minimum of seven. And in one year, nine starting pitchers, Friedman said. So with the razor-thin margin in this division, and what can be the difference between moving on and staying home, its something were very mindful of, Friedman added. We dont look at it as having an overabundance of starting pitching. The Yankees and Red Sox begin every season with expectations of winning the division. The Rays, who won the AL East in 2008 and 2010, are getting to that point. When you step back and take a big picture view, for us to have those expectations is a great thing. Its never a problem. Its never something that you shy away from. ... The only way or time it can become a problem is if you take on that mentality of were that good or we dont have to work, Friedman said. Associated Press Tampa Bay Rays catchers Jose Molina, left, and left fielder Desmond Jennings work out Monday as pitchers and catchers officially report to baseball spring training in Port Charlotte.

C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S COREBOARD Lecantos Madison and Amber Gamble. After dropping the first set 4-6, the Gamble sisters battled back to take the match, winning the next two sets 6-4 and 6-3. Lecantos other doubles pair didnt fare quite as well, as Citrus No. 2 pairing of Melanie Dodd and Jaclyn Ear took a hard-fought 7-5 first set, before cruising to a 6-1 second against Lecantos Adrienne Burnett and Chynna Liu. In singles action, Citrus No. 1 Sarah Labrador handed Lecantos Simi Shah a tough loss, taking both sets 6-2. Melanie Dodd added another win for the Canes, defeating Amber Gamble 6-4 and 6-4. Lecantos No. 3 and No. 4 singles brought home victories, as Madison Gamble and Chynna Liu beat out Citrus Jaclyn Ear and Lena Martone, respectively. Madison took her match 7-5 and 6-4, while Liu won 6-3 and 6-4. Rounding out singles results, Citrus No. 5 Taylor Jordan defeated Lecantos Palak Gasai 6-3 and 6-2 to give Citrus its fourth win of the night. I told the girls this would be tough, Waters said. We figured it would be 4-3 at the end, and we were hoping it would be 4-3 leaning our way. We are pleasantly surprised. The girls had a good night. Grammy-winning group Train will sing the National Anthem. The band from San Francisco has won three Grammys. Pat has one of the most amazing voices in music today and we are ecstatic to have him perform the National Anthem before hundreds of thousands of fans in attendance and millions more watching live on FOX Sports, Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood said. The races grand marshals are Jane Lynch and Kate Upton, who co-star in the new Three Stooges movie, which opens April 13. The duo will deliver the four most famous words in motorsports: Drivers, start your engines. WWE superstar John Cena will wave the green flag as the honorary starter of the Daytona 500. Cena was invited to participate this year by 2011 Sprint Cup Series runnerup Carl Edwards on WWEs Monday Night Raw. Edwards got out of his official No. 99 Fastenal Ford and told Cena, NASCAR asked me to come to Monday Night Raw and personally invite you to drop the green flag and officially start the Daytona 500 on February 26. An appreciative Cena enthusiastically accepted with an emphatic Yes! For the traditional prerace concert, recording artist Lenny Kravitz, who has sold more than 35 million albums and is the only musician in history to win the Grammy for best male vocals in rock music four times consecutively, will perform the Daytona 500 Pre-Race Show. Ticketed fans will be treated to front row seats on the grassy tri-oval infield area at noon on race day. Sam Bass, designer of special guitars for NASCAR and other movie stars, will present Kravitz with a one-of-akind guitar prior to the race. Kravitz joins a long list of star-studded names who performed in the Daytona 500 Pre-Race Show, including Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Bon Jovi, Kelly Clarkson, Mariah Carey and Brad Paisley. Its a complete day for the fans, said Andrew Booth, senior communications director of the speedway. Other entertainer highlights include: UFC Light Heavyweight champion Jon Bones Jones will participate in pre-race ceremonies and ride in the pace car as Honorary Race Official for the Daytona 500. For the third time, the U.S. Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron will perform the flyover, featuring six F-16 Fighting Falcons, the Air Forces premier multi-role fighter aircraft. and community itself. One thing my dad always told me is when youre out there, you hustle, he said. Hustle dont go into a slump. Of Buccheri, Hampton had fond memories. He was instrumental in my development, Hampton said of his former mentor. It takes people like coach Buccheri to get you to the next level. Later, Hampton looked to the right field line, where the Pirates players stood along the foul line and said, I played one way, it was 100 percent every time I was between the lines. If I could give yall any advice, its play the game that way, he continued. You never know when your last game is going to be. The Homosassa native speaks from experience: after 16 MLB seasons and 148 wins on the mound, Hampton officially announced his retirement at age 38 last March. By all accounts, Hampton had a successful career in the big leagues. He was a two-time All-Star and MVP of the 2000 NLCS as a member of the New York Mets. In 1999, the left-hander was second in the NL Cy Young race for the Houston Astros and his five consecutive Silver Slugger awards are the most for a pitcher in Major League history. After all of those accomplishments, the Citrus County native affectionately remembered his time as a Pirate. From small towns, big things can happen, Hampton said. (It was) an honor to put on the (Crystal River) uniform. J.M. Soracchi is the Chronicle sports editor and can be contacted at jmsoracchi@chronicleonline. com or 352-564-2928. either way.

Everett dropped the the match in straight sets during the cross-county rivalry. Pirates outlast the Eagles in four-hour marathon M ICHAEL M AKSYMICZ CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER As the sun set and the air got cooler, the Crystal River boys tennis team finally beat the Gainesvilles Oak Hall 52. The victory gave the Pirates a 2-0 record at the onset of the season. I was pleased with all the boys performances tonight, Pirates head coach Bill Reyes said. In the beginning, the No. 1 singles match proved to be a challenge for Crystal Rivers Brandon Papp. Papp took the first set 6-3 but had some problems, yielding the second set 0-6 to the Eagles Harrison Thibault. Papp did, however, regain control by winning the third set 6-3 to take the match. Crystal Rivers No. 2 singles player Travis Swanson has an easier time defeating Aman Kabeer 6-2, 6-3 for his win. The Pirates Matt Allen needed three sets to claim a 7-5, 5-7, 6-4 victory over Oak Halls Logan Blaser. Crystal Rivers Ryan Johnson did not have the same good fortune as the Eagles Brendon Cooke took the victory with sets of 3-6, 76, 6-2. This match lasted four hours as the two competitors battled back and forth in a slow-paced contest. Aaron Molinero gave the Pirates a win in the last singles match by defeating Neil Duncan 6-3, 6-2. In the doubles competition, the No. 1 Pirates team Papp and Swanson won the pro-set match 8-3 over Thibault and Kabeer. However, Crystal Rivers Allen and Johnson played a barn burner at No. 2 doubles that saw an 8-8 tie. The resulting tiebreaker of 9-7, however, favored the Eagles for the win.

Mistakes Declaw Panthers in Loss D AVEP IEKLIK CorrespondentLECANTO Lecanto found the tourniquet to stop the bleeding but mistakes kept the Panthers from regaining life Tuesday night, as the girls softball team lost 6-2 to Central High School from Brooksville. A close game early on could have been a mauling by the visiting Bears (3-2, 1-0 district) if the Panthers (2-1, 0-1 district) had made a few more errors. Lecanto coach Robert Dupler said afterward the seven errors and four hits his team had were unacceptable. Only four runs Central scored were earned. I expected more fight, Dupler said. I didnt see enough fight tonight. The bleeding started with the Bears at bat in the top of the fourth inning with a 1-1 score. Centrals Katie McCarthy hit a sharp grounder to third basemen Amber Russo that she mishandled on a bounce, with McCarthy beating the throw. Two hitters later, McCarthy slid safely into third after a bunt was mishandled. With the bases loaded, a tricky fly ball hit deep to centerfield was dropped, bringing in a run. A bunt brought in another run after indecision by a Lecanto infielder. Panther infielders met at the pitchers mound, with several exclaiming, stop the bleeding. Only one more run crossed the plate in the inning. Unfortunately, Lecanto couldnt find much momentum from the plate, with a last-inning run failing to spark a rally. The loss spoiled one Lecanto bright spot shortstop Paige Richards went 3 for 4. Central coach Tyson Ellis credited his team for hitting well and sticking with good fundamental play, while praising Lecanto for its determination and potential. Coach Dupler has a good, young team over there, Ellis added. Its youth that Dupler pointed to as one possible factor in his teams struggles; nine sophomores, one freshman, three juniors and two seniors make up the roster. He said without his teams errors, the game would have been 2-2 in the seventh inning. You spot them five runs, he continued, youre trying to pull yourself out of a barrel without any arms.

Associated PressGAINESVILLE Kenny Boynton was part of a hot shooting night for No. 12 Florida, scoring 20 points as the Gators overcome 18 turnovers and beat Auburn 63-47 Tuesday night. Boynton made 7 of 11 shots from the field, including 6 of 9 from 3-point range. Florida shot 53.5 from the field, including 11-of-21 from 3-point range. The Gators (22-6, 10-3 Southeastern Conference) needed it, too. They had 15 turnovers in the first 27 minutes, an error-filled start that had coach Billy Donovan seething and the Tigers (14-13, 4-9) leading. Florida eventually settled down and used a 26-4 run to turn a one-point deficit into a double-digit lead. Bradley Beal and Erving Walker were huge in the spurt. They finished with 13 points apiece. Walker added seven rebounds and five assists. Boynton and Beal capped the big run with consecutive 3s that sent many of the home fans home. Adrian Forbes led Auburn with 11 points. He was the teams only player in double figures. Kenny Gabriel fell hard to the court twice, and Chris Denson was helped to the locker room with an apparent knee injury. Denson injured his right knee on a driving layup just before halftime. His basket put the Tigers ahead 30-27 and surely gave Donovan more ammunition to rip his players during the break. The Tigers shot 33.3 percent from the floor and made 6 of 17 from behind the arc. But losing Denson and Gabriel was tough to overcome. Kansas State 78, No. 3 Missouri 68 COLUMBIA, Mo. Rodney McGruder scored 24 points and Kansas State upset No. 3 Missouri, the Wildcats second win this season over the Tigers. Kansas State (19-8, 8-7 Big 12) led 40-30 at halftime and by 16 points in the second half before a late run by Missouri (25-3, 12-3) got the Tigers within 63-60. Missouri trailed by 4 after two free throws by Michael Dixon with 2:21 left, but Jordan Henriquez answered with an alleyoop dunk. The Wildcats extended the lead on two free throws by Henriquez and built a cushion from the foul line in the final minute. Thomas Gipson added 13 points for Kansas State. Dixon scored 21 and Marcus Denmon added 19 for Missouri, which fell short of the best start in school history.No. 7 North Carolina 86, N.C. State 74 RALEIGH, N.C. Kendall Marshall had a career-high 22 points and 13 assists to help No. 7 North Carolina beat North Carolina State. Harrison Barnes added 20 points for the Tar Heels (24-4, 11-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who extended their domination of their nearby rivals. North Carolina has won 12 straight meetings and hasnt lost to the Wolfpack (18-10, 7-6) in five years. The Tar Heels shot 51 percent, including 10 for 19 from 3point range. And Marshall was a big reason for that success, whether he was knocking down outside shots against sagging defenders or finding teammates for baskets. No. 8 Ohio St. 83, Illinois 67 COLUMBUS, Ohio Deshaun Thomas scored 19 points and No. 8 Ohio State regained its shooting touch, rolling over Illinois to remain in the thick of the Big Ten race. Ohio State shot 65 percent from the field. William Buford, much maligned for his recent poor shooting, had 17 points, and Aaron Craft added 11 to go with five assists. Jared Sullinger managed nine before fouling out. The Buckeyes (23-5, 11-4) stayed on the heels of Big Ten leader Michigan State with three games remaining. The Spartans are 11-3 in league play. Meyers Leonard had 21 for Illinois (16-12, 5-10), which has lost six in a row and nine of 10. Seton Hall 73, No. 9 Georgetown 55NEWARK, N.J. Jordan Theodore scored a career-high 29 points to lead Seton Hall to the signature win it needed for its NCAA tournament resume, a victory over No. 9 Georgetown. The Pirates (19-9, 8-8 Big East) put on quite a shooting performance against one of the conferences best defensive teams. They shot 61.0 percent (25 for 41), the best against the Hoyas this season and only the third time any team shot 50 percent or better. Georgetown (206, 10-5) came in allowing 38.4 percent shooting this season. Theodore made all five of his 3-point attempts to lead Seton Hall, which finished 8 of 13 (61.5 percent), and that came against a team that was allowing 27.6 percent from beyond the arc this season. No. 11 Michigan 67, Northwestern 55 OTEVANSTON, Ill. Trey Burke, Zack Novak and Stu Douglass hit 3-pointers to start overtime and No. 11 Michigan beat Northwestern for its fourth straight victory. Burke scored 19 to lead the Wolverines (21-7, 11-4), who made 14 3-pointers and kept their Big Ten title hopes alive with a hard-earned road victory. Northwestern (16-11, 6-9), whose chances of getting to the NCAA tournament for the first time in school history were dealt another blow, got 14 points from John Shurna, six below his Big Ten leading average. Shurna became the schools career scoring leader on Saturday, but he managed only four second-half points. WOMEN No. 1 Baylor 80, Texas 59WACO, Texas Brittney Griner had 18 points with 10 rebounds and top-ranked Baylor claimed the outright Big 12 title with a victory over Texas. Griners 40th career doubledouble came in her 100th game at Baylor. The Lady Bears (28-0, 15-0 Big 12) clinched a share of the title with a win over Texas Tech on Saturday night, when they cut down the nets and got championship T-shirts in a fullscale celebration for their second consecutive Big 12 regular season title, and third overall. After beating Texas (15-12, 5-10) to ensure they wouldnt have to share the title, the reaction by the Lady Bears was much more subdued. No. 4 Connecticut 86, Pittsburgh 37PITTSBURGH Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis scored 23 points to lead No. 4 Connecticut to a win over Pittsburgh. The Huskies (25-3, 12-2 Big East) rebounded from Saturdays loss to St. Johns that ended their record 99-game winning streak at home to hold the Panthers (8-19, 0-14) to three first-half field goals. Connecticut began the game with a 29-4 run that included 10 straight points from MosquedaLewis. Tiffany Hayes added 13 points for UConn, which hasnt lost back-to-back games since losses to Providence and Louisville in March 1993. No. 20 St. Johns 63, West Virginia 54NEW YORK Nadirah McKenith matched her careerhigh with 26 points to help No. 20 St. Johns keep rolling with a victory over West Virginia. The Red Storm (19-8, 11-3 Big East) have won 12 of their last 14 games, including the thrilling 57-56 victory over thenNo. 2 Connecticut on Saturday that vaulted them back into the Top 25 on Monday.

Biebers 2nd book set for release NEW YORK Hes only 17, but pop sensation Justin Bieber is back with his second book. HarperCollins announced Tuesday that it will publish Justin Bieber: Just Getting Started. The book is described as the second official photographic book from the multiplatinumselling superstar. The company says it will be released worldwide in September. His first book, titled First Step 2 Forever: My Story, was published in October 2010. It has sold more than a million copies in 25 languages. Colbert to release kids bookNEW YORK With the blessing of Maurice Sendak Stephen Colbert is releasing a childrens book. Grand Central Publishing said Tuesday that it will publish I Am a Pole (And So Can You!) on May 8. In a twopart Colbert Report segment that aired last month, Colbert previewed the book with Where the Wild Things Are author Sendak. Claiming he was looking to cash-in on celebrity childrens books, Colbert penned an illustrated story about a flag poles quest for identity. In a statement, Colbert said: I hope the minutes you and your loved ones spend reading it are as fulfilling as the minutes I spent writing it. Grand Central previously published Colberts 2007 bestseller I Am America (And So Can You!) It will also publish his next book, America Again: Re-Becoming the Greatness We Never Werent in October.Mendes feels snubbed by Oscars NEW YORK Sergio Mendes will attend the Academy Awards on Sunday, but will do so with mixed feelings. Hes honored that his song Real in Rio, from the animated movie Rio, is one of the only two nominated this year, but upset with the show producers decision not to present the tunes during the telecast. I am very frustrated, kind of sad that we will not be able to perform such a lively song, the 71-year-old Brazilian legend said. Associated PressWASHINGTON Sometimes there are downsides to being president: You cant just go for a walk, says Barack Obama. Then there are the times that more than make up for all those frustrations like Tuesday night, when Mick Jagger, B.B. King, Jeff Beck and other musical giants came by the house to belt out the blues. I guess things even out a little bit, Obama joked at the start of a rollicking East Room concert electrified by Jagger and featuring a musical A-list. Legends and up-and-comers turned the East Room into an intimate blues club for a concert celebrating the rich history of the music and its lasting impact on American music. This music speaks to something universal, Obama declared. The blues reminds us that weve been through tougher times before. Their music teaches us that when we find ourselves at a crossroads, we dont shy away from our problems, we own them, we face up to them, we deal with them, we sing about them, he said. We turn them into art. King, 86, arrived in a wheelchair but rose tall to kick off the night with a rollicking rendition of Let the Good Times Roll, quickly joined by other members of the ensemble. And he followed with The Thrill is Gone. From there, Obama and his wife, Michelle, were swaying in their seats and singing along to an allhits playlist including St. James Infirmary and Let Me Love You. Beck slowed things down with an instrumental Brush With the Blues, as anticipation built for the arrival of Jagger, who did not disappoint. The longtime Rolling Stones frontman delivered on I Cant Turn You Loose and then teamed up with Beck on Commit a Crime. Jagger got the president and his wife up out of their seats, swaying and clapping to the music. Jagger told the crowd hed been in love with the blues since he was first introduced to the sound when he was about 12 years old. He recalled the first time he played the blues for American greats including King, who he said must have thought the young Brits were from Mars or something. But they were generous, Jagger recalled, and they passed on their tips and gave us all their help. Then it was time to pick up the pace with Miss You, performed with Shemekia Copeland and Susan Tedeschi. In advance of the concert, Jagger tweeted that Obama had popped in during a rehearsal and seemed really relaxed and happy! Grammy-winner Keb Mo, for his part, joked during a rehearsal break that Obama himself would perform, and there could even be a record in the works. He joked that Obamas record would be called, After the second term, now I can finally get my groove on. The lineup for Tuesdays concert spanned multiple generations, from legends like King and Buddy Guy to young faces such as 26-year-old Troy Trombone Shorty Andrews and Gary Clark Jr., whose style blends hip hop, contemporary soul and indie rock. Also performing were Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, with actress Taraji P Henson as the program host, and Booker T. Jones as music director and band leader. Andrews said before the concert he got a chill just hearing King play a few notes during rehearsal. He added that he was hoping to learn something and maybe even borrow a few moves from the veterans in the group. Even in rehearsal, Andrews said, Jagger was in character right away like he was playing in a stadium all of the moves and things. Im like, Im going to steal some of those. At an afternoon blues workshop for middle school and high school students visiting the White House, Mrs. Obama declared, Today, weve got the blues but in a very good way. She called the blues an art form that stirs our souls, and it helps us rise above all our struggles. The blues concert will be part of the In Performance at the White House series that airs on PBS. This one, designed to recognize Black History Month, will be broadcast on Monday on PBS stations and aired later on American Forces Network.

Some of the information you receive could be used in ways that are personally profitable. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Although it will be easy for you to get along with most people, you can still expect cross words to come out of your mouth if a nasty person ticks you off. Avoid such types if you can. Aries (March 21-April 19) If you expect friends or family to do things for you that you can easily do for yourself, youre going to be severely disappointed. You had better be ready to go it alone. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Even if youre sure of yourself, it isnt smart to forcibly impose your beliefs on others. You might win the argument but alienate your pals in the process. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Although you may be able to see some changes that would clearly benefit your family, your kinfolk may not be prepared to make them. To get their support, theyll need to see what you see. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Even if another has better ideas, you may not be easily convinced. Make sure that youre not putting the kibosh on something cool just because your pride is wounded. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Your conclusions regarding how others should be managing their affairs will be right on the money, yet when it comes to your own bailiwick, youll suddenly go blank. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Avoid inclinations to treat simple situations in a heavy-handed manner. If you take yourself or events too seriously, you are likely to just make yourself sick.

As time ticks on, your temperament and talents could lose their cutting edge. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Socializing and being with friends will be fun, provided the time spent with them is of short duration. Unfortunately, your social graces might not have much staying power. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Because your temper might have a short fuse right now, you could bring woe to those who cross you and make you angry. Sadly, the probabilities of you misinterpreting others will be high. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Have the courage of your convictions, because if you dont, a know-it-all might try to intimidate you by discounting your ideas in front of others. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Instead of applying incoming funds to new endeavors or merchandise that youve had your eye on, it would be a whole lot smarter to pay off some of your old debts first.

Associated PressNetflix has locked up the right to show The Artist and other movies from The Weinstein Co. on its Internet video service before the films are released to the leading pay-TV channels. The multiyear deal announced Tuesday stocks Netflix with more artillery in its home entertainment battle versus premium cable channels, such as HBO and Showtime, and Internet video services provided by Amazon.com Inc. and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. Netflix Inc. CEO Reed Hastings has identified Time Warner Inc.s HBO as his companys biggest rival during the next decade. Netflix sells an $8 monthly service that beams video to TVs and other devices with high-speed Internet connections. HBO also offers an Internet-streaming version of its service, but its only available to consumers who pay for the cable-TV channel. Getting the streaming rights to fare such as The Artist, which is nominated for 10 Academy Awards, also may help Netflix keep its subscribers happy as other popular selections disappear from the services video library. Netflix will lose the rights to stream many movies from Walt Disney Co. and other studios when a threeyear licensing deal with the Starz Entertainment channel expires next week. Netflix, which is based in Los Gatos, Calif., says it currently has more than 23 million Internet streaming subscribers in the U.S. and more than 40 other countries.

Section C WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Pupils pay price for poor performance Associated PressCHICAGO A sense of order and decorum prevails at Noble Street College Prep as students move quickly through a hallway adorned with banners from dozens of colleges. Everyone wears a school polo shirt neatly tucked into khaki trousers. Theres plenty of chatter but no jostling, no cellphones and no dawdling. The reason, administrators say, is that students have learned there is a price to pay literally for breaking even the smallest rules. Noble Network of Charter Schools charges students at its 10 Chicago high schools $5 for detentions stemming from infractions that include chewing gum and having untied shoelaces. Last school year it collected almost $190,000 in discipline fees from detentions and behavior classes a policy drawing fire from some parents, advocacy groups and education experts. Officials at the rapidly expanding network, heralded by Mayor Rahm Emanuel as a model for the city, say the fees offset the cost of running the detention program and help keep small problems from becoming big ones. Critics say Noble is nickel-and-diming its mostly low-income students over insignificant, made-up infractions that force out kids administrators dont want. We think this just goes over the line ... fining someone for having their shoelaces untied (or) a button unbuttoned goes to harassment, not discipline, said Julie Woestehoff, executive director of the Chicago advocacy group Parents United for Responsible Education, which staged protests last week over the policy after Woestehoff said she was approached by an upset parent. Students at Noble schools receive demerits for various infractions four for having a cellphone or one for untied shoelaces. Four demerits within a two-week period earn them a detention and $5 fine. Students who get 12 detentions in a year must attend a summer behavior class that costs $140. Superintendent Michael Milkie said the policy teaches the kids overwhelmingly poor, minority and often hoping to be the first in their families to attend college to follow rules and results in a structured learning environment. He points to the networks average ACT score of 20.3, which is higher than at the citys Associated Press Noble Street College Prep principal William Olsen and students Chadie Morris, left, and Khadijah Hallmon walk through the hall of the school last week in Chicago.

The Citrus High School freshman, 4-H and FFA member, is getting a first-hand look at state government from inside the Capitol, where he plans making that voice heard for years to come. The 14-year-old student has been actively participating in 4-H and FFA for most of his life, according to his mother, Cara. He has done a lot with 4-H and FFA, she said. He started in 4-H as a Clover when he was 8, and now hes also in FFA in high school, she said Friday afternoon. He does a lot of community service with nonprofit agencies and he does a lot of community service with 4-H and FFA. That selfless attitude and strong work ethic that calls him to volunteer to help others has taken the teen from Citrus County all the way to the Capitol in Tallahassee. Following a nomination by the Citrus County Communities Alliances Childrens Week Committee, Meeks was chosen as one of 12 youth in the state to sit on the 2012 Childrens Week, Florida Youth Commission on the Cabinet. He will remain on the commission for a term of one year. The appointment will allow the teen to address issues with the governing body. He recently returned from the Capitol following the Teen Only Town Hall, where he concentrated on early childhood education, a subject he is interested in pursuing in the future, he said. He is taking an early childhood education class at Citrus High School to better equip himself to help the See LEADER / Page C2 Nathan Meeks finishes cleaning the area where his swine Champy lives on the Citrus High School FFA grounds.

Too often it is after the fact that teachers discover their students are worrying less about math and reading and more about where the next meal comes from. So Doug White, principal of Garfield Elementary School in inner-city Kansas City, was relieved when his school, like many across the country, began offering dinner to students enrolled in after-school child-care or tutoring programs. With breakfast and lunch already provided for poor students, many children now are getting all their meals at school. When you know about those situations those kids are bringing into the school and we are asking them to sit down and concentrate and do their work, and they might be hungry and we havent been made aware of it yet we definitely want to do everything we can to help the kids, White said. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, signed into law by President Barack Obama in December 2010, provides federal funds for the afterschool dinner program in areas where at least half the students qualify for free or reduced price lunches. Before the change, the program was limited to 13 states and the District of Columbia. Most states had provided money for only after-school snacks. Since the change, districts have started rolling out dinner programs both in states newly able to offer them and states like Missouri, where funding was available previously but districts didnt Associated Press Kindergartner Mercey Gaye, 5, and other students at Garfield Elementary School eat dinner after classes as part of a new program in Kansas City, Mo. See MEALS / Page C2 Federal funds funneled into feeding program Obama takes tougher stance on education Associated PressWASHINGTON Access to college has been the driving force in federal higher-education policy for decades. But the Obama administration is pushing a fundamental agenda shift that aggressively brings a new question into the debate: What are people getting for their money? Students with loans are graduating on average with more than $25,000 in debt. The federal government pours $140 billion annually into federal grants and loans. Unemployment remains high, yet there are projected shortages in many industries with some high-tech companies already complaining about a lack of highly trained workers. Meanwhile, literacy among college students has declined in the last decade, according to a commission convened during the George W. Bush administration that said American higher See EDUCATION / Page C2 Looking For A Boat?You can find it in todays classifieds.SHOP NOW!794602

always know about it. The Congressional Budget Office estimates there will be almost 21 million additional suppers served by 2015 and that number will rise to 29 million by 2020. The added spending would total about $641 million from 2011 to 2020. Advocates for the poor praise the program, but there have been complaints from conservatives who question whether the schools should be feeding kids three meals a day. Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh asked on-air in November, Why even send the kids home? Dinners are funded through the U.S. Department of Agricultures Child and Adult Care Food Program, which also helps feed people enrolled in child and adult day care programs and emergency shelters. The number of dinners served through the program has grown over the past decade, although the USDA doesnt currently break out how many meals are served through after-school programs specifically. The USDA has done a lot to streamline the requirements and made it easier for people to apply and participate, said Crystal FitzSimons, who researches and advocates for afterschool meals for the antihunger nonprofit Food Research and Action Center. Before, we did outreach in the states that allowed it. There were programs participating. But I think it has gained a lot of momentum and a lot of visibility because it has been expanded nationwide. In California, the Oakland Unified School District started a pilot program in October, dishing up dinner in 11 of its 101 schools. The district plans to expand the program in 19 more schools by the end of the school year. There are some of these kids who you know just dont eat when they go home, said Jennifer LeBarre, nutrition services director for the district, where about 70 percent of its 38,000 students qualify for subsidized meals. In Tennessee, Memphis City Schools are serving about 14,000 after-school meals daily. About 84 percent of the districts 110,000 students qualify for freeor reduced price lunches. Kate Lareau has mixed feelings about the program even though her first-grader enjoys eating dinner at her Memphis elementary schools after-school program. As a grant-writer for a nonprofit that works with people in a south Memphis housing project, Lareau said she can afford to feed her daughter, but knows that a lot of children go without. Do we need to provide all three meals? Im not sure, she said. But I personally know children who dont get any food after they get home. I dont want those kids to be hungry for sure. The district began offering the meals, featuring entrees such as Cobb salads and ham and cheese sandwiches, in 70 of its 200 schools in November and plans to expand to the program in 30 more schools by years end. In a perfect world, June and Ward would grab the Beav and Wally and give them a great big breakfast with a hug and kiss and send them off, said Tony Geraci, executive director of child nutrition for the district. There would be pot roast wafting through the living room when they show up at home. But thats not how it is.

This council is made up of representatives of head agencies in state government. Agencies including the Department of Juvenile Justice, Department of Children and Families and Department of Education are represented. There are Senators and Representatives on appointment by the governor, too she said. Nathan is one of 12 youths selected to sit on the council out of hundreds of youths nominated statewide. The councils job is to make rules and to come up with creative ideas to help children and youths throughout the state of Florida. All these members on the cabinet are collaborating to help youths and to better our system. She said the program, in its second year, gives outspoken youths a chance to impact the world around them, something her son is equipped to do. Ive always known hes a very good speaker and he voices his mind. Hes truthful, honest. Weve really tried to raise him to be a person of integrity and hes a real go-getter, she said. As his mother proudly spoke of his accomplishments, the teen quietly went to work washing his swines stall free from soil and debris. He plans on entering Champy into the Citrus County Fair next month. He said his Claybusters 4-H Club and Citrus FFA group, as well as the commission he sits on in Tallahassee, are important to him because it affords him a platform where he and other peers can shape the world around them. I hope that we can make changes to where children get to talk more, more than people let them, he said. We want to be heard. We should be able to talk, where people will listen, about what goes on in school and what goes on in our state, about us, he said. While at the Capitol, the teen was invited to serve as a page in the House of Representatives for Rep Jimmie T. Smith in the Page and Messenger Program, something Meeks said was especially enjoyable. He said soon he would become an intern for Rep. Smith and that experience will serve him well as time passes. His plans for a future in politics in Tallahassee following high school and college are definitely a possibility. Citrus High School FFA adviser Randy Kegler has seen his share of FFA members over the course of 29 years at the school. It doesnt take him long to express his feeling about his freshman FFA member. Hes a great kid, he said. Hes an example of a student who can speak for the children. Hell be taken seriously because hes mature and hes been given leadership opportunities through 4-H and FFA. To me, its an advantage for our 4-H and FFA community to have a youth like Nathan speak for us and take issues forward. Im blessed as an FFA adviser. LEADER Continued from Page C1 Special to the Chronicle Citrus High School freshman Nathan Meeks recently spent a week in Tallahassee, where he had a chance to visit Gov. Rick Scott. other non-selective public schools, and says more than 90 percent of Noble graduates enroll in college. While fights can be an almost daily occurrence in some urban high schools, Milkie says theres only about one a year on each Noble campus. By sweating the small stuff ... we dont have issues with the big stuff, he said. Milkie said the fines also help defray the cost of administering after-school detention and the salary of the networks dean of discipline, which otherwise would divert money intended for education. But Donna Moore said the district is manufacturing problems that lead to unproductive badgering of students, including her 16-year-old son, who had to repeat ninth grade at Nobles Gary Comer College Prep after racking up 33 detentions and several suspensions. It was nothing egregious, but just that the little things added up: a shirt unbuttoned, shoes not tied, not tracking the teacher with his eyes, said Moore, adding that her son has an attention disorder. Its not normal to treat a young adult as a 2-year-old ... kids internalize that. Woestehoff and Moore said some families have removed their children from Noble schools because they couldnt keep paying the fees, though Moore said her biggest complaint is the infractions. Milkie said Noble sets up payment plans and on rare occasions waives the fees, and students never would be held back a grade solely because they couldnt pay. Even so, Matthew Mayer, a professor in the graduate school of education at Rutgers University, said a monetary fine is highly inappropriate because it likely has no bearing on students academic performance and disproportionately hurts poor families. Its almost medieval in nature. Its a form a financial torture, for lack of a better term, Mayer said. Emanuel defended the school, saying it gets incredible results and parents dont have to send their children there. Charter schools are exempt from most district policies. Parent Tammy ONeal said her two daughters are excelling at Nobles Muchin College Prep, and only one ever got detention, for not wearing a belt. If a kid is prone to getting in trouble and not taking school seriously, then (the fines are) a steep slope, she said. But why dont you tell your kid to straighten up? Chadie Morris, 16, a sophomore at Noble Street College Prep, carries a 3.8 grade-point average at the school, but figures she has paid $45 already this year for such things as talking in class. Sometimes it can be about the littlest things and you can still get demerits, she said. Demerits are horrible; detentions are horrible. But the aspiring lawyer, who struggled with absences until her adviser and principal persuaded her to come back, looks forward to attending a one-week summer college program. Other charter school operators in Chicago and elsewhere said they dont fine students but respect Nobles academic success and its right to adopt its own discipline policy. Tim King, CEO of Urban Prep Academies, which operates three high schools for boys in some of Chicagos toughest and poorest neighborhoods, said he believes very firmly in a more therapeutic or restorative approach vs. punitive toward student conduct. Every student in Urban Preps first two graduating classes was accepted to a college or university. At Knowledge is Power Program, a network of 109 charter schools in 20 states and the District of Columbia, middle school students are rewarded for good behavior with a weekly incentive paycheck fake money that can be redeemed at the school store or used to defray the cost of a field trip, spokesman Steve Mancini said. The system is phased out by high school because its no longer needed. Milkie, though, doesnt plan to change a thing. Its a beautiful system, he said. I dont want to brag, but it is. Its why the kids are so successful. FINES Continued from Page C1 Associated Press Noble Street College Prep students Khadijah Hallmon, left, and Chadie Morris pose in the hall of their school in Chicago. The school has a policy of charging students $5 for detentions stemming from infractions that can include chewing gum and having untied shoelaces. education has become increasingly risk-averse, at times self-satisfied, and unduly expensive. About 40 percent of college students at four-year schools arent graduating, and in two-year programs, only about 40 percent of students graduate or transfer, according to the policy group College Measures. College drop-outs are expensive, and not just for the individual. About a fifth of full-time students who enroll at a community college do not return for a second year, costing taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars annually, according to an analysis released last fall by the American Institutes for Research. Theres been a growing debate over whether post-secondary schools should be more transparent about the cost of an education and the success of graduates. President Barack Obama has weighed in with a strong yes. During his State of the Union address, Obama put the higher education on notice: If you cant stop tuition from going up, the funding you get from taxpayers will go down, he said. Higher education cant be a luxury its an economic imperative that every family in America should be able to afford. He wants to slightly reduce federal aid for schools that dont control tuition costs and shift it to those that do. He also has proposed an $8 billion program to train community college students for high-growth industries that would provide financial incentives to programs that ensured their trainees find work. Both proposals need congressional approval. At the same time, the administration is developing both a scorecard for use in comparing school statistics such as graduation rates as well as a shopping sheet students would receive from schools they applied to with estimates of how much debt they might graduate with, and estimated future payments on student loans. Americans higher education system has long been the backbone of much of the nations success. Its now projected that students with a bachelors degree will earn a million more dollars over their lifetime than students with only a high school diploma, said Education Secretary Arne Duncan.
